20 THE TEREE HAUTE STAE, WEDNESDAY, MAT 11, 1960. Margaret's Mate To Be Made Earl Says British Press LONDON, May 10.— (DPI)— The British press predicted today that Antony Armstrong - Jones, now just plain "esquire," will be created Earl of Sussex to give him a title to go with his status as Princess Margaret's husband. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said he "would not dismiss the chance" that Tony would be ennobled, but he refused to speculate as to when, or what title he might receive. 'There has been considerable public discussion over whether Tony should receive a title. THE EMPIRE NEWS newspaper said the title might' be announced soon in the official London -Gazette in which all such appointments are reported. But then again, said Empire News, it might be delayed until the former photographer and the sister of Queen Elizabeth return from the Caribbean honeymoon aboard the royal yacht Britannia. The Sunday Dispatch also men- IRON FIREMAN OIL BURNERS with the fuel saving bowl shaped flame STOKER SALES CO. 41 S. 18th St. (Rear) C-4113 tioned the possibility that Tony would be dubbed the Earl of Sussex in the next few days, but the dispatch opposed the idea. "Leave well enough alone," it advised the palace. It said the marriage had caught the fancy of the people because Tony was a commoner. + + + THE HONEYMOONERS probably could not care less about the fuss over to-title-or-not-to-title. All Antony had after his name now was "esquire"—meaning gentleman. At the moment, Margaret was Princess Margaret, Mrs. Antony Armstrong-Jones and for the moment, at least, it" was good enough for her. The admiralty took pains to deny a report that the yacht, biggest and most luxurious in the world, was in any danger. A report said there was a mine loose in the Bay of Biscay off Brest, France—the area where the Britannia was today. But the admiralty said the Britannia was nowhere near the reported mine. Asks an Inquiry Into Surplus Arms Imports to U. S.

The senator said some lifles loaned by this country to oth»r nations in the past now are being dumped here at <_ut rate prircs that compete with sporting ar.ns manufacturers. + + + SALTONSTALL, senior Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, made public ? letter to Senator Lyndon B. Johnson, Democrat, Texas, chairman of the Watchdog Preparedness subcommittee, asking an investigation by that group.

"We should take steps to see that their ability to remain in business is not jeopardized by governmental policy." SALTONSTALL said the trade in military surpluses includes jet aircraft, tanks, military apparel and other materials which could "fall into hands where it might be used against the best interests of the United States and its allies." The senator said the State Department has issued, a temporary embargo on imports of surplus foreign rifles and the Office of Civil and Defense Mobilization is considering a long-term halt on such imports. Institute Booms Bikes as Way to Control Figures BY PATRICIA M'CORMACK NEW YORK, May 10.—IUPD— Pedal-pushing females are fighting spare tires, boredom and fatigue by wheeling along on bicycles. The Bicycle Institute of America, citing the surge in Milady's cycling, points to Marilyn Monroe as one proof positive of the rewards promised the gal who pushes pedals regularly. The institute's roll of celebrity cyclists also includes Debbie Reynolds, Kim Novak, Shirley MacLaine, Vivian Elaine and June Allyson. THE INSTITUTE reported that bike dealers across the nation are making more sales to women over 18 than ever before. Particularly in suburban areas : women are using bikes to con- j trol weight—and to get "from ; here to there" when the family cars are tied up. , John Auerbach. executive sec-1 retary of the institute, said in an interview that the bicycle fever also has spread to career women fighting bulges associated with sitting too much. ONE REASON for the inflated interest in bicycles by women is the recent report that heart ailments are on the increase among females, particularly those in demanding career-type office jobs. Physicians long have urged cycling as one way of keeping your guard up against some heart disorders, particularly the degenerative type striking the "loafer's heart.' ' In a round-up of the medical opinion of the merits of cycling regularly, the institute first cited Dr. Paul Dudley White, the Boston heart expert who once ministered to President Eisenhower. DR. WHITE would like to put ail adults on bicycles regularly — not just once in a while. "That is a good way to prevent heart disease," he said. Dr. Irvine H. P-age of the American Heart Association, takes the view that "coronaries and dispositions would be better off" if there were more bicycles and fewer automobiles. Dr. W. W. Bauer of the American Medical Association's Health Education Bureau calls the bicycle "one of the great unappreciated vehicles for goo d, wholesome exercise that can be continued to a considerable age." The message from the experts also is being taken to heart by younger women. The institute said that bike riding in girls' colleges and universities is at an all- time high. OF 1,200 students at Radcliffe College, for example, 450 ride bikes. And 1,100 of 1,384 at Vassar pedal. While most of the schools have informal bike clubs, formal cycling clubs have been formed at a number of colleges. The institute said the Texas Women's University in Denton, Tex., is one which has a cycling club. And one woman's bike club in Sarasota, Fla., has this stringent requirement: All members must be at least 60 years of age. Revive Interurban GREENSBURG, Ind., May 10.— I/T>—A local historical group plans to restore a four-mile stretch of the old Indianapolis and Cincinnati Traction Company line between here and Adams. The roadbed is still in good condition, and several old interurban cars have been obtained. The state of Maine appropriated 550,000 in 1959 to restore eight of its ten ancient covered bridges. Rhee's Departure May Ease Burden On United States SEOUL, Korea, May 10.—Wl— South Korea, with Syngman Rhee gone, may become an easier burden for the United States. Don't look for immediate relief in the pocketbok, however. More than half the $500,000,000 the United States spends on Korea every year is military aid. Economic aid has been dropping year by year, from $390,000,000 in 1957 to 219 last year to' about 180 this year, as South Korea's economy grows stronger. + + + NOW, WITH promise of more free enterprise and less corruption, the country should be able to shoulder a larger share itself. American officials are not recommending any drastic cuts in United States aid since they consider that would be a slap at the new regime. It is impossible to say how much economic aid was wasted under the Rhee government. Experts believe most United States economic aid spent here did contribute to the Korean' economy. + + + MUCH OF THE mususe was in subsidizing factories which had ' CHRYSLER'S * ALL NEW AIRTEMP GAS FURNACE with "Contour flame" burner that never needs cleaning NOTHING DOWN 60 months to pay GENERAL HEATING CO. 2105 Maple Ave. L-0710 WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTORS Kltchtn Builder Division W»lktr Electric Supply Co.

A typical example was a United States aid-financed leather factory which had few customers; Koreans wear rubber shoes and the United States was already importing boots for the army. Both United States and Korean officials say aid funds were used for political use by Rhee's discredited Liberal party. They say the climate has now changed overnight. Americans are en- couraged by the actions of caretaker President Huh Chung and his economic ministers. Invented by Thaddeus Fairbanks in 1830, the lever scale was the first contribution to the science of weight in 2,000 years.
