SO THEY TELL ME with BILL SOBERANES PETALUMA'S FAST TRAVELING BACHELOR The double title of Peta-luma's fastest traveling bachelor and the one who can accpmplish the most in the shortest time goes to Charles (Chuck) Hodges, local insurance man. f Charles recently returned from an eight-day automobile trip through Southern California and Mexico, city and most of the other major cities down south of the border; he then came back to Long Beach where he proved his right to the bachelor who really gets he took care of a number of time to go dining with a named Jill St. John who is young starlets now under contract to Universal Pictures Yes, Chuck probably knows more young, beautiful starlets than any other local bachelors, including King Steve 'Mezzera and Bouncing Bob On the way home Chuck stopped in Los Angeles where he visited former Petalumans, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Martin. His next stop was Reseda where he visited with former Iocalites, Mr. and Mrs. Jim fore heading home was a place called Bellflower where he visited a couple of more former Petalumans Mr. and Mrs. Gordon (Little Whitie) day trip Chuck and his traveling companion, Don DeCarli, traveled over 6,000' miles and still found time to meet many interesting people, and visited all of Mexico's major cities. I'm beginning to wonder if Chuck didn't make the trip on a magic carpet. YOU TELL ME I. A.

CRYSTAL GAZING Johnny Saxton over Jumping Joe Miceli in tonight's TV fight from Washington D. WE GET THE On June 12, Edith Henrichsen stated, "I read several years ago that a baby was born that would never suffer pain. She then asked, Can on this case? "After some research, I discovered the following newspaper clipping datelined Akron, Ohio. I knew the clipping was several years old but unfortunately the clipping did not carry the date and year. Anyway here's what the clipping said: One never know the agony of pain regardless of how badly she may be injured, doctors disclosed. Beverly is a painless baby. Physicians at Children ing held for observation, said children known to have been "The infant never has felt pain and never is likely to, doctors at that time stated. She cries only when angry or hungry. An attractive and mentally bright child, Beverly Will lead a normal life except that she will have to be watched closely to see that jured; doctors said she wouldn t know it, "Incidentally, doctors said Beverly's condition is one of indifference to injury of congenital origin. This was de scribed as a development defect, not a disease, with no remedy. "f "Doctors said it would be perfectly possible for Beverly to break a leg or suffer an attack of appendicitis with out ever knowing it. After printing this story we asked anyone, especially doctors, who had any information on what happened to tseverly smith to contact this columnist. A local doctor contacted Dr. James G. Kramer of At ron, Ohio, and he sent back the following report: - "I have checked through ismith. lhree months ago she was living and well and there had been no change in her condition. During the interim, since the original diagnosis, she has not suffered any accidents or any trouble in her skin." .

BUMPED OFF TWICE IN ONE WEEK Petalumans had the opportunity of seeing our own Myron Healey bumped off twice during the week. The first time at the State Theatre when he played the part of a sheriff, and the bad guys shot 'im dead, right at the beginning of the movie. - Tuesday night Myron played the part of a producer on the TV show Conflict; after about 15 minutes of acting he was again shot dead. Wonder if Myron will ever last long enough to make the final curtain? When Myron plays the bad guy they shoot him dead, and the same thing happens when he plays the good guy. SPORTS DEPARTMENT Hottest rumor along the local sports row The Chicago Cardinals to trade Ollie Matson to the San Francisco 49ers. Don Ramatici and other Petalumans who played college football with the Great Ollie Matson will be very happy if this happens. MORE ABOUT WHITE REDWOODS Some time back we had an item here about white redwoods, and now a friend has brought some around to the Argus-Courier office for personal inspection. The branches, or maybe we should call them fronds, are several inches long and are just like other redwood growth' only the color is white not exactly a snow white but very pale indeed and without a trace of green. Wayne Roderick, 2346 Magnolia Ave., brought in the branches, which were given him by a friend who found them in the Healdsburg area. This type of white redwood grows, Wayne says, only on stumps. That is, it is always pecond-growth and is supported in a way by some green branches, as the white ones have no chlorophyll. In other words, a stump with all white branches could not live as all plants require chlorophyll to utilize the life-giving rays of the sun. i THE PETALUMA JAYCETTES WILL PRESENT ONE OF THE TOP FASHION SHOWS OF THE YEAR AT THE PETALUMA WOMAN'S CLUB TONIGHT.

HARDWARE CO. 2 591 FRi'NDLY SERVICE SINCE 1864 TROJAN ACTIVITIES High 'School Halls Jammed As a New Year Gets Started By MARCIA MILLER Well, summer's over and school's in for another year. Lots of kids were getting kind of anxious to be going back to school, but now that the routine of, homework has actually come upon tnem, mey suddenly nave lost the yearn for the old familiar halls of learning. . The first day at Petaluma High was certainly a madhouse for the incoming sophomores and transfers. Even the Juniors and seniors had, their share of lost registration cards and the problem of not remembering where Room so-and-so was. The sophomore class seems twice as big as either the junior or senior classes. Kids were standing all along the wall during assembly and quite a few couldn't even get into the auditorium. . A LOT OF REGISTRATION cards were misplaced, including mine. So we of the lost cards had to stand around the office and wait for a long time before the cards turned up. Principal Henry Knight remarked at assembly that he knew how it was he attended San Francisco State College this summer and had to wait in line, three hours ,to register. The poor sophs looked pretty rattled by the time the day was over, and they were probably all wondering how In the world they would ever find those class rooms again tomorrow. I've never seen the halls so crowded with students, and it seemed like everyone-xcept me had grown about a . foot during the summer. . The line at the cafeteria ran way out into the street, which was enough to scare lots of kids into eating downtown. Student body president Milton Yoshioka welcomed the new students at a brief assembly period. Mr. Knight gave a talk and introduced the student body cabinet-Dorothy Bragga, recording secretary; Mike Peebles, secretary of citizenship; Roger Pearson, secretary of finance; Nancy Fu-jita, social secretary; Dorothy Augustine and Dennis Hromek, secretaries of rallies.;- Madeline Nakano, senior class" rep; Dave Brock, junior class rep; Judy Parent, Girls Club president; Al-do Baccala, Boys League president. Service Club president Carl Jensen and Traffic ' Committee president Ray Petersen were also introduced. , The cheerleaders Sue Benno, Joyce Jones, Steve Lind and" Dick Myers led the student body in some yells, including the competition yell. You could hardly hear the sophomores, but even though I'm prejudiced, I do think the juniors were as loud as the seniors. The pom-pom girls have real cute uniforms this year purple felt skirts, white bulky knit turtle-neck slipover sweaters, and short white gloves. ,, SID McCAUSLAND was elect ed State President of the Pilgrim Fellowship of the. United Church of Christ (Congregational) at State Camp in Cazadero. Sheri Evans, Kristie Bergman and Su sie Ann Lange also went to State Camp.

Truck Law To Sfrarf Next Week SACRAMENTO OfV-A new law going into effect Wednesday puts a speed limit of 45 m.p.m. on all big trucks and takes patrolmen off the hook in enforcing it. The law, passed by the 1957 Legislature, applies to all trucks and trailers with three or more axles, regardless of weight. The present law has the special 45 m.p.h. limit for those trucks with three or more axles that weigh over 25,000 pounds gross. Trucks under that weight were covered by the regular state pri ma facie limit of 55 m.p.h. which makes it illegal to exceed 55 unless the driver can prove he was doing so safely. The measure, which ' was by Assemblyman William F. Marsh (R-North Hollywood), docs not apply to buses. Under the present law, patrol men have not only had to count axles but also guess the weight to see whether to give chase. Beginning Wednesday, all they'll have to do will be count axles and check the speed. The law is getting a mixed re action from truckers with some showing little concern but others claiming it will slow up sched' ules and create problems. Floyd McColl, a spokesman for the California Trucking Assn., said his organization does not consider the new law particularly important as far as operations are concerned. HE SAID it is mainly to help enforcement and added, "It puts everybody on a more uniform basis." Arnold Bowman, Southern California driver supervisor for Pacific Intermountain Express (PIE) one of the largest trucking outfits, said: "We have no complaint . . . We recognize the problem. It was brought about by extreme abuse of the speed laws." Bowman said he feels there will be "no more tolerance" by law enforcement officers and that there will be a general tightening WEEK-END SHOES $1.99 to $4.00 Big markdowns on Shoes for boys, girls, mom and dad.

He's been working at Dick' erson's. f Didja know- That Charlie Graves works at the Chinese Market? That "Wesley Hill and Johnny Robinson are employed at the Roger Wilco Supermarket? That Gary, Barry and Susan Grushkowitz and parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sol Grushkowitz have moved to Honolulu, Hawaii? up-Various other spokesmen for large companies said their policy is to keep theif trucks near 45 m.p.h. anyway. However, Coast Line Truck Service opposed the new law, saying a qualified truck on a modern freeway should flow along with the traffic. "Moseying along" only creates confusion, a spokesman said. Unofficially, several truckers said the new limit will make it hard to meet schedules, especially on longer runs. They said lax enforcement under the .old law permitted trucks to highball on deserted stretches.

Killer's Wife Seeking to Divorce Him Mrs. Isoma Melvin Fender, whose husband is serving time at San Quentin for manslaughter, filed a divorce action this week in Superior Court seeking custody of the couple's five sons ranging in age from five to 19 years.

Laurit-zen, a fellow truckdriver employed by the Paris Hay St Grain Co. of Petaluma. Fender admitted he had pumped two .22-caliber bullets into Lauritzen on the morning of May 10, 1956 as the climax of two years of ribbing and name- calling. Fender said he was driv en to use a gun to get Lauritzen "off my back." He told police he would have had it out with Lauritzen with his fists except for the facts that he had a crippled right hand and that Lauritzen was bigger and heavier than he was. Fender is '5 feet 9 inches tall; Lauritzen was 6 feet 6 inches.
