No niitclwurM Police have never said Just what If anything, the fingerprints taken by slender, dark-haired Orabowsk have disclosed. The state said Miss Susan Hayes, a 24-year-old hospital technician, probably would be one of Its lasl witnesses. A trim, pretty woman, Miss Hayes admitted intimacies with Dr. Sheppard In California.

The defense let the witness go after only five minutes oi cross-examination. Assistant county prosecutor Saul Dariaceau denied reports the state had any trouble with the witness. "Dr. Hoverslen testified to al! matters that we knew anything about," Danaccau declared. Dr. Hovorsten said Dr. Sheppard, an old school chum, men- .loned twice that he had considered divorcing his wife. He also said Dr. Sheppard's Brother Stephen ordered blm out of the defendant's hospital room when he talked with Dr. Sitm on he day after the slaying.

All interested persons, both lay and clergy, are Invited to attend, he said. The Highway 18 location was a comparatively tame issue until Lange PTA took action to have the Highway re-routed around Lange School. Traffic Count Made The organization circulated a fact sheet" on the situation there, including results of a traffic count which showed that hundreds of cars and trucks pass the school during loading and unloading periods for school children. Proposed routing would bring ,he Highway into town at the intersection of Main and 21st Streets. Arkansas Highway Department ready to spend $15,000 for right of way and Is asking the city to guarantee up to $1,200 for right of way purchased within the city 1m Its. That Is, the AHD doesn't want to go above the $15,000 figure. At the last Council meeting, Councilmen voted 4-2 to accept the state's proposal. However, live votes are needed to pass such a measure and it Is due to be brought up again tonight. Change in Voting? The PTA opposition hadn't crys- talled when that last vote was taken. Its action could niter any voting on the same measure tonight. Miss Winnie Virgil Turner, elementary school supervisor, is ready with a code governing comic boks, but she probnbl" won't present it tonight. Miss Turner hns been leading a they are recorded. One of Vishinsky's last official acts was a surprise switch Saturday, when he tossed in an amendment to place the proposed agency under the Security Council, in which the Soviets wield veto power. Vishlnsky had indicated previously that he would agree to negotiate later on Just how the proposed international atomic agency should be linked to the U.N. The United States quickly rejected the amendment, insisting that the agency should not be hamstrung by the veto. There appeared to be no softening of the latest Soviet position yesterday when Arkady Sobolev, No. 2 man on the Soviet permanent delegation, said In a pinch-hit appearance for Vlshinsky that the Russians wanted: 1. The proposed agency , to be j responsible to the General Assembly—and the Security Council cases provided for by the U.N. Charter. '1.

'City Council of PTA on Nov. l r approved a move to bring the Santa Barbara, Calif., comic code before Blytheville's City Council. However, Miss Turner has, wise ly decided not to burden Council men with this matter should to night's meeting become us lengthy and involved as it promises. It Is expected that some oppos: tlon will appear in regard to the filling station to be erected at Di vision and Walnut since the area is in a commercial-residential twi light zone though no commercin buildings now stand on the block FACING THE FACTS Some people reach for a drink to help solve problems. Some reach for a sleeping pill, and some reach for both at the same time. There in no question but that the barbiturates, when used properly, have been .1 boon to mankind. Many alcoholics were. Introduced to the barbiturates by their doctors and used them. In (he beginning, only for sound medicinal purposes. But most alcoholics ure unable to handle any kind of drug with moderation. If one pill ran help them feel better or sleep better, they seem to reason then two pills should be twice as beneficial. There is no end to the ascending spiral of alcoholic reasoning. The fact that both alcohol and sedatives can literally result in intoxication Is of paramount importance to every alcoholic who hopes to achieve or to maintain sobriety in AA. It means that the pill taker-Is deceiving only himself If he claims to be completely sober while under the influence of sedatives. H moans that his dependence on the fact that barbiturates leave no trace on his breath is only a show that is bound to be exposed as his reliance upon sedatives becomes more impulsive. It is commonly accepted In AA and lo a growing degree of doctors that alcoholism Is a progressive illness. Many potential alcoholics drink moderately and with social grace In the beginning. As time passes the potential alcoholic's drinking becomes heavier and the consequences of that drinking become more serious. Eventually, hr crosses the invisible borderline between heavy drinking and alcoholism and finds that his will power and all considerations of family, job and security cannot keep him from excessive drinking. Somewhat the same type of progression appears to take place with those who permit sedatives to become a problem. First, a certain tolerance to the barbiturates develops. The individual finds that the amount, which may have been prescribed for him by his doctor, no longer is adequate to relieve him of the jitters or enable him to sleep—So he keeps increasing the dose. At this stage, pill taking is stfli an optional matter, the individual can probably take them or leave them, but he continues to use and abuse the sedatives because they are handy and he remembers what they have done for him In the past. The next stage has been described as habituation. At this point, the individual finds that he cannot stop taking pills without feeling a deep craving for them. Finally, the pill laker enters the addiction stage. He can no longer control his physical or mental craving for practically continuous sedation. The individual has become the virtual equivalent of a chronic alcoholic. He cares about nothing except his next pill»or his next several pills. By this time he may already have tried the even more compulsive narcotic* such ac morphine or heroin. Both the alcoholic and the barbiturate Addict reach the end of their roads only after passing through stages in which their abuse of a grand thing becomes progressively worse.
