WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1955 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Dodgers' Victory Mild in this Day Of Big Surprises By DON WHITEHEAD WASHINGTON (AP) — Let us relax with the triumphant Dodgers of Brooklyn this fine fall day and enjoy in full measure this old screwball world. After seven failures, the Dodgers finally win their first world chairs plonship by beating the New York Yankees 2-0 in the seventh game of the World Series. The proud, rich Yanks are humbled. The Bums sit in the plush seats of the mighty. The Ubangis and Ugandis may not know that the Dodgers are the world champions. But there you are. And Sen. Bricker <R-Ohio) has told a news conference nothing is impossible these days. "If delegation should land from Mars." he said. "I would say: 'What have you been waiting on: I've been expecting you for a long time.'" These are the days of surprises, oddities and unusual happenings. Already, a full year before the electio'ns. the politicians are skittish and presidential hopefuls are peeking from under their brows hoping the mark of a nominee will be stamped on them by popular demand of the people—this mark being two wings spvouting from a halo which hovers over a log cabin. And Pink Pants, Too These are the nights when the crap shooters, the faro players and the slot machine set will leave Never too young to go "western" =Westbrook'si FAMILY SHOE STORE ^3U W. Main ^^ Phone 2342^ their gambling to crowd into a Las Vegas night club and listen to a Metropolitan 'Opera star- Patrice Munsel—sing "A Sleeping Bee." Just incidentally, Miss Munsel appears in the Venus Room of the New Frontier Hotel wearing a curve-hugging costume which includes a pair of pink, sequintd toreador pants. •These are the days when the Boston Museum of Science is able to prove that two heads are not better than one, thus exploding another cherished saying. At least these two Boston heads are not better than one bcause both heads are on one turtle which never can make up its mind. One head controls the two left legs and the other head supervises the right legs. The museum's education direc-, tor, Norman D. Harris, says: j "When he gets all four feet going! in one direction, it's just a happy j accident." I These too are the days when it'sj not safe to leave ?2,528 in cash lying around where a 3-year-old can get his hands on it. Prank Licavoli Jr. of Detroit took his mother's purse and 82,528 from the top of a refrigerator. They found him later clutching the empty purse in one hand and five pennies in another. DOR pays These are the days when German shepherd dogs are being ballyhooed as being better cops than cops in some cases. Commissioner Margurite C. Johnson of Dearborn, Mich., says her city is using dogs as the solution to police shortage. And in one case, she claims two dogs could have done a better job than 200 policemen in flushing a berserk man from a building. The only disadvantage of using a dog in a patrol car, Mrs. Johnson says, is that "he can't drive" while his police partner sleeps. This is not to imply that the Dodgers, two-headed turtle, got all their feet going in the right direction merely by happy accident or that they didn't deserve to win. But no one can deny that strange things are happening these days. FEN.VEY'S NEW LOOK — J has just completed an extensive Both interior and exterior of the C. Penney Co. given complete renovations.

WEST NEWTON, Pa. (A—A runaway lumber truck, horn blowing frantically, roared half a mile down a sleep hill and smashed into B moving" train yesterday. ; Nine freight cars were flung from the Baltimore and Ohio track*. They crushed the truck like a tin can and demolished two buildings. The truck driver, Claude Brandt, 31, Warrenton, N.C., and four other people were killed. Three derailed cars contained explosives but did not blow up. Some of the cars smashed imo the Casale Fruit Store on one .side of the tracks, others into a hardware store on the other side. Dead were Jacob Casale, 50 j owner of the fruit store; Sheryl| Ross, 6, daughter of a West Newton t restaurant proprietor; S h e r y 1' s grandmother Mrs. Dora Whiteman. about 70, of Industry, Pa.; and Mrs. Martha C.

Engineer William McManus, Connellsville, Pa., said he saw the speeding truck "but there was nothing I could do." Lloyd Mauk, a civil defense auxiliary policeman, said he heard the truck horn wailing. "After the truck hit the train all I saw was lumber flying." he related. "Then there was a big cloud of dust. I jumped down and went over to help." I Grimly, Mauk told how he saw the body of the Ross child, a bloodstained doll in her arms. There were few people on the street nf this community of 3'.800, about 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, when the crash occurred. One businessman said: "It was .terrible but it would have been worse except for the World Series. Mosr everyone was indoors looking ai television or listening to the radio." Two railroad wrecking crews worked through the night to clear Ihe B&O's main east-west route between Cumberland, Md., and Pittsburgh. A large area was blocked off while the dynamite was unloaded. Sheriff Howard E. Thomas estimated total damage might be close to one million dollars. Meanwhile, several investigations were launched to determine the cause of the wreck. One official said he believed the truck brakes had failed. HELD TWO HIGHEST William Howard Taft hai been the only person to occupy the two highest offices in the U.S.govern- ment.
