PAGE TWELVE BLYTHKVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1947 Suggested Site For Hospital 'Heeds Study' Murderer Battles Police LITTLE ROCK, Ark, July 11. (UP) — Oov. Ben Lancy said yesterday that a suggestion to build a medical center on the grouifds of the L'tttle Rock unit of the state hospital "looks good on the surface" but needs a lot of study. The governor said the main obstacles would be financing construction of the nea medical school and ' disposing ot the old building on Little Rock's East side. The governor said It had liecn suggested that Ihe proposed memorial hospital be built to house Ihe entire meciical school. He pointed out, however, that would be done only after a through study by experts, i Lancy said no proposal had been advanced to the Veterans Adminis, tratlon asking Ihom to move their proposed $£,000,000 hospital to the state-owned site. •'•If the state can work oul ils end of the proposition," Lancy said, "we may offer a site lo the Veterans Administration. We will not demand that the hospital be moved, but we will be willing lo offer them n location if other details can be worked out." Meanwhile, Dr. H. C. Chcnault and Dr .George \V.

In one of the two beds a small fiirl sat up in « welter o blankets, rubbing her short, fail curls 'and yawning. • "Hello," she said. "I had to gc back to work after dinner, di< you-'" _ ,. "No, I went' shopping." Hut hesitated. "I'm sorry, but thcj didn't tell me your name. 1'r Huth Miller." The small girl laughed. "I kne\ that. There's not much I miss! I'n April Hooper. I work around th corner, in Ihe drugstore. Wher do you work?" Ruth untied the siring on th suit box. "I work al Blackmail's "Like Moke nnd Poke. Hav you known them very long? You. do know them, don't you?" ' "They sent me here." She held up the suit and shook out the folds.' She was tired, but she knew she had to be polite. She needed •April. 1 . ."Look,". April," she said. She held up the suit. • But April had no eyes Tor clothing. She rallied on. "Moke and Poke are nice. Some people think they're fresh, but I don't. When the weather's bad and there's ice on the pavement, they call tor me Even when they have, dates, they call for me. They take the time That's nice, isn'l it?" "It surely is." Rulh hung the stii In the closet and closed the door .Chatterbox, she thought wearily. ' "I think they're pretty, too.' .pri! said. "Their liaii- Is so soft, nil they take good care of their kin. It's like velvet. I like '.o ouch their faces nncl they don't ilnd. It isn't often Hint you find nice jiorsun who's pi'clty, too. . . Wlnil do you look like, Ruth?" Ruth looked nshusl i'.t the sinnll inure huddled in the middle of the bed. Why, the child's feeble-minded, she told hcvsclt with lorror. Why didn't they tell me about hcv. Fccble-mimlc'l. A cloud came over April's fncc. "Oil," she said. "I'm sorry, lUith. That's a shame, dial's what' it is. Nobody told you nbonl mo and I've scared you. But you're not to feel bad about me because I don't mind at all. I'm blind." Rnlh went slowly to the tumbled bed. llci-Miands auloninlically smoothed -the covers nnd rearranged the pillow. April's hand found one'of hers and held it tost. "You're nol to feel bad, do you hear?" she insisted. "When you're bom Ihnl way, it doesn't make any difference." When the lights were finally oul, Ruth lay awake for a long time. She had promised lo breakfast with April, in the dining room. There was no help for it. She had 10 choice. ,_ ... .. \TOKE and Poke screamed across -*-'- the crowded dining room: 'Hey kids, come over here!" April led Hnth proudly, a paradox that brought smiles to many faces. 'We fixed il," Moke said. "You arc going lo cat at our table. One big happy family. Hoy, Clara, two more breakfasts." "Miss Brady's looking for you, Ruth," Poke said. "She wauls to tell you about this afternoon, at least that's what she said." "As it we couldn't tell you just as good," Moke jeered, "and fancy lies thrown in. It's about the tea. We have a lea every Sunday, but this one's different. Anil worse. We got 'to make masks for the costume party. . • . House birthday party. House is five years old." "Got nil our teeth and can we bile," Poke said. "Let me tell il, lot me. Now get this, Mrs. Marshall-Gill, head ot Ihe Board, dreamed up u costume parly, everybody dressed alike, rag dolls with the same old false face so nobody know.-, who anybody is. R.-H: dolls, r-h nol kidding, with rag faces a-id holes to seo and breathe llirt-ugh. She's evil got a priic for U.e girl who guesses the most othci girls.

"I'm expecting a coll, I may have lo go out." She put her elbows on the table and shielded her face willi her hands. Moke frowned and her shrewd young eyes moved about the room. Girls coming nnd going. House girls, the regular gang. Nothing lo mnkc a person turn white and hide her lace. She looked at Ttuth again. Nol caling, either. Sick and no fooling. Sick or something. "Okay," she said lightly, "but you got to come for n minute anyway. It's n—what do I want lo say, Poke?" .-.».. "A obligation." Moke grew unensy. She felt- responsible and helpless.
