'And Then There Was None' — When 10 Hungry Hounds Go to Work Ten little puppies, all in a row, go hard at it during mealtime at the Wally Sherbon household in Pittsburgh, Pa. Each starts out with his (or her) own bowl, left. But as the bowls are emptied, the fast eat- ers all gang up on the slowpokes, right, and pandemonium reigns. The three-monh-old baby hunting dogs, six males and four females, are the pride and joy of Becky, a pedigreed beagle. The pups haven't been DOUBLE BUBBLES Big- World Handicraft on Sale at U.N. Center eyed Pat Suzuki tries a tricky double helping of champagne and a taste of Broadway fame at the same time. She was celebrating backstage after the opening of a new musical, "Flower Drum Song," in which she scored a hit. VOTES TWICE FORT DODGE W) — Albert Zemke, 34, president of the Webster County Federation of Labor, pleaded innocent in Police Court Monday to a charge of voting twice in the November general election. UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. WV- For that loved one who wants something different this Christmas, here's a place whose wares range from an Indian lucky bean for 25 cents to a French Came- roons chief's throne for $160. Tucked away in the basement of the General Assembly building, the U. N. Gift Shop has been taking in more than $2,000 a day since the Christmas season began by selling' the handicraft of some 70 nations. The store's wide variety of stock runs the gamut from the exquisite to the grotesque. It brings in an annual gross of more than a half million dollars. The offbeat display lures some 750,000 visitors a year including collectors, tourists and a sprinkling of jaded kleptomaniacs. A number of celebrities frequent the little shop which has been operating since 1952. Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt buys many of her Christmas presents here. So do conductor Leopold Stokowski and movie star Irene Dunne. Transactions vary from a few pennies handed over the counter by small fry tourists to a recent order for more than $3,000 in Christmas presents placed by a Western industrialist. "We import nearly 90 per cent of our stock from the place oJ origin," said Lloyd Glasgow, manager of the gift shop. "We insist that it be indigenous to the country concerned and, where possible, that it be handcrafted." This passion for authenticity has brought in some rather bizarre items, but most of them eventually find a buyer. Glasgow recently imported — with some trepidation — a batch of tooled leather camel saddles from Egypt to retail for $45 each. It was scon discovered that camel saddles make good seats for tele- 14 vision viewers and the lot sold ike hot cakes. There has been a similar run on Canadian Eskimo soapstone carvings flown in from the Arctic Circle by bush pilots and priced from $10 to $80. Silk stoles from India for $60 are big sellers. So are illustrated lacquer boxes from Russia for $45. A favorite with youngsters and a source of hypertension for their parents are genuine Australian boomerangs for $2.75. Collectors are among the store's best customers. "Last summer an international doll collectors' convention met in New York and got word that we had a stock of dolls from nearly every nation in the world priced from 50 cents to $100, Glasgow said. "They nearly bought us out." The shop with its open counters and general air of confusion attracts a number of kleptomaniacs and small time pilferers. "They used to get away with $15,000 in stock a year, but we've cut it down to around $5,000," Glasgow said. "When we spot them we stop them at the door and politely suggest that they forgot to pay for an article concealed in their pocket. It usually works." Aside from the perennial Christmas rush, the store derives a comfortable, steady income that goes into the United Nations general fund. World events can bring a sudden boom, however. When the Middle East crisis broke last August and the General Assembly went into emergency session, the gift shop did a land office business. »^^X*^N^N^W«^W«^S^^%^%^ The combined state police forces in the United States today total almost 22,000 men. AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD Tuesday, Dec. 9, 1958 Broken Crib Blamed for Death of Baby DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - A 10- month-old baby boy was killed by a broken crib.

Glennan Says Space Probes to Pay Public FORf WORTH, Tex. (AP) Dr. T. Keith Glennan, America's space chief, predicts a huge pay- oft for the public from the billions of dollars to be invested in space probes.

Gather Much Data He said in a Chamber of Com merce speech Monday night that weather prediction is an immedi ate aim of space vehicles. He said satellites could gather more data faster to aid meteorologists. He also predicted improved communications, using satellites as way stations for long-distance transmissions. Not Quite Satisfied Earlier, at Austin, he met with Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex). Both agreed the Army's lunar probe last week was a scientific success, but were not satisfied that the rocket failed to maintain schedule.
