WALT DISNEY'S SCAMP By WARD GREENE Tony was employed as a eceptionist-guard at the Harvey Bank. Ross was installing air duets at the Harvey Bank when he found his ladder unsteady.; loss asked Tony to loan himj ladder. When Ross mounted he ladder Tony lent him, it ollapsed, causing Ross to fall nd sustain injuries. Ross sued de Harvey Bank. The Judge ismissed the suit and Ross ap- lealed. : 'Tony had used the ladder nd I relied on his assurance hat it was safe," Ross com-j lained. "Tony was in charge t that time since he was the nly one there." "We never authorized Tony to elp Ross make the installation; »r do his work," the bank rgued. "Ross brought his own adder. A bank guard is not xpected to lend a ladder to! utside workmen doing a con-! tractor's job." I COULD THE BANK BE! HELD LIABLE FOR NEGLI- 1 GENCE BECAUSE IT LOANED 1 THE LADDER? Weigh bothj ides. Then, mark your verict: YES( ) NO ( ) YES. "A question of fact was aised as to whether the guard cted within the scope of his mployment," the Appeals Court held. "There was a actual issue as to whether the uard had discretion to act upon easonable requests of the work-: nen. If the guard acted negli- ently, the bank could be held lable for Ross' injuries."

On the way, the young soldier regained consciousness, gazed at the blue sky overhead, and felt the swaying motion of the stretcher. Feebly he lowered one hand over the side to find nothing but space.

Psychological studies lave shown that one of your most favorite subjects is men. There's a common interest in he male of the species, but what about your feelings toward them? Think you've got a typical woman's view of men? Or dp you believe you're an indi- •idualist on this subject? The following short quiz which I've prepared might give you some idea. Just answer 'true" or "false" to each at the following statements: 1. Qualities like kindness or ambition count far more in a man than how high his IQ is. 2. The subtle and highly so- ihisticated man can't hold a candle to the one with stradght- orward down-to-earth tastes and views. ARE CAVEMEN POPULAR? 3. Even if he has to be almost brutal about it, the man hould always be the boss. 4. College degrees or di- lomas have very little to do with a man's attractiveness. 5. It would be better to have husband who drinks and ambles than one with a bad Draper. ' It's a husband's right to etermine how his money, is to t spent. 7. Though a husband may ack other attributes, he must ; faithful. 8. A woman is most apt to all in love with a man whose jersonaiity is similar to hers. Husbands understand wives better than wives under- land husbands. 10. You may love a man, but -OU seldom can trust him. ERE ARE PSYCHOLOGICAL NSWERS 1. False. Psychologists at /ing Island University found omen ranked intelligence as he number one quality of an ttractive man. 2. False. The subtle and witty .an seems to have an edge rath the ladies, because studies roved less than 1 par cent pre- erred the unsophisticated man. 3. True. Contrary to many artoons, it seems that women eafly don't want to wear the Mints in the family. Even to the oint, findings show, that he aps his wife around a little t to prove his dominance! 4. Fake. A man's education ounts for a lot to a woman, pparently because it tends to dicate he's informed on the >stract subjects she's in- erested in, such as art, music, or literature. 5. True. Though drinking and rumbling come out a close second, results of a recent na- pnwide poll showed top gripe wives was their husbands' ad temper, otherwise known s grouchiness. False.

A Cryptogram quotation GJK UHZK JHAKIGP D UDA JDI. GJK SK1I JK DCCKVGI O.IK DNZ A couple, long married, were reading their newspapers one evening; when tfte wife spoke op: "This front-page ay check will be spent. As matter of fact, one of wives' )et peeves, apparently, is the ay their husbands squander oney themselves, but pinch- 3nny the rest of the family! 'OMEN FORGIVE VERYTHING-ALMOST! 7. True. It seems that a wife an forgive almost everything er husband does, but infidelity, n-ly 25 per cent of the wives sted on this subject said they ould even bother to take th« me to think it over before ap- 6-ig} plying for an immediate divorce. False. The old "opposite* story makes it appear that the murderess shot her husband at very close range." "Then," reasoned the husband, "there must have been powder mnrHs on him." "Precisely," nodded the wife, 'and let this be a lesson to vou, my little man. Because that's why she shot him." • • • RIDDLE-DE-DEEs Q. What did the artist's model say the day she was fired? A. "I've been deposed." What did one eye say to the other eye? A. "Just between us, there's something here that smells." What did the brook say the morning the elephant sat down in it? A.

Same goes with tha impulsive emotional type and the cool-headed thinker. 9. True. A husband's naturally objective view enables him to see his wife pretty much as she really is, but fte wife— with her view distorted, as studies at University of California showed it to be—tends to see her husband as she visualizes him to be, not as he really is. So much for "reading him like a book," eh, 'girls? 10. True. It seems to be a rare woman who trusts a man very far. And apparently she nay have some justification for ler suspicious nature, as studies at DePaul University bund that men are more prono to deceive than women.
