Rolh bee-keepers !.ee Sartent (l«fl) and W. T. Mulkry claimed this errant swarm of bees. It took a lost of a coin lo decide who kept (hem. By John J. Sjiano NEA Sjweiul Correspondent NEW ORLEANS, La— (NEA) — The flip of a coin settled once and for all the problem or which one of the beekeepers should keep Ihe bees. II all parted when a housewife called police about hundreds of bees creating a disturbance In a bush In her yard. No one knew where they came from, but they probably were kicked out ol a hive by the younger set, as is the ciustom among bees. Two professional beekeepers—W. T. Mulkey, 48. and Lee Sargent, 56, were notified. Both operate hives on a commercial basis. Sargent got to the bees first. VUutkey finiver a few moments Later und grabbed the queen bee. The hundreds ol other bees swarmed into Mulkey's container after he placed their queen in it, Muikey had the seven pounds of bees, worth about S10 and the queen, valued at around $2.10. Surgent objected, claiming; he had gotten there first. "I got them in my box, haven't I?" Mullrey retorted, implying that possession is nine points of the law. They argued back and forth. Sargent belittled his fellow beekeeper's professional ability. "I can catch bees in my hat," Sar^em said. Mulkey said something about Sargent having bees in his bonnet. The two claimants almost came lo blows. That's when (wo policemen arrived. Solemnly, they heard arguments from both sides and decided the swarm should be split in half and a pan given to each beekeeper. But the cops didn't know their bees. "You can't divide them like that," Sargent said. "There's only one queen nnd all the bees will slay with her." An assistant district attorney was called into the case. He said he could do nothing, because the matter was a civil one. Finally, in desperation, the cops ordered the flipping of tht coin. Mulkey won. .Sargent walked away grumbling something about .the inadequacy of the legal system. Justice Out of Danger YORK. Me., Aug. 31. <AP>—Supreme Court Justice Wiley B.

Even In those 'conn- tries nhere it is not rationed, the price is generally higher than Ion- income groups can pay. Hospitals and oiher public institutions still depend on charity shipments from abroad for the bulk of their needs. CARE officials throughout Europe report the use of Inferior quality soaps in Institutions Is i serious menace to child health. An Associated Press survey showed France. Italy and Scandinavian countries as the brightest spots on Ihe European soap map. Britain Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia are at the othr- en di o[ the scale.
