(AP Photofax) Simple Drugs Used Successfully to Reverse Pregnancy in Dogs NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Successful use of a simple drug which reverses pregnancy in dogs was reported today by a Yale pathologist. "The drug, known as malucidin, does not cause abortion," said Dr. Leon F. Whitney of the university's medical school staff. Dog Reabsorb When injected, the drug causes the pregnant female dog to reabsorb the emryo into her blood stream, explained Dr. Whitney. He describes his studies in Vet- rinary Medicine Magazine. He said the drug was used on many bitches between the 10th and 42nd day of pregnancy "and was successful fa all cases," The gestation period of a bitch is 61 days. Boon In Eltminattom In an interview, Dr. Whitney said, "From a practical stand' point, when the drug in injectible form is made available to the veterinary profession, it should be a boon in the elimination of unwanted puppies." 5 Die as Car and Truck Hit SEDAN, Kan. (AP)-Five Arkansans, en route home from a holiday visit to Colorado, were killed Sunday when their car and a pickup truck collided on a bridge near here. Killed were Frank Zitman, 62; hii wife Jesie, 65; Sloan Rudy, 55; his wife Mary, SO; and Mrs. Lona 0*Bannon, about 80, mother of Mrs. Zitsman. All lived at Imboden, Ark. The driver of the truck, Virgil Reckathorn, Winfield, Kan., was hospitalised at Coffeeville, where his condition was reported as fair, Undersheriff C. F. Oibbs said ice on tho U.S. Highway 166 bridge may have caused the collision. The Arkansans had been visiting a stepson of the Zitzmans "Beyond that," he stated, 'based on the present state of our knowledge,.I should not want to go." Directly Into Blood Malucidin was discovered by Dr. Ivan Parfentjev, a former member of Yale's microbiology department. He produced the drug from spent brewer's yeast.

Dr. Whitney said the drug affected pregnant bitches only when shot directly into the blood stream, and then only when given in large doses. "How malucidin accomplishes its result, and how the embryko is absorbed into the blood stream, is still more or less of a mystery," he said. s Drill Instructors Charged With Recruit Beating PARRIS ISLAND, S.C.

Pout of August*, Oi., mother drill Instructor it this Marine recruit trailing center, are charged with accepting money from 89 members of an Ohio recruit platoon. Bach recruit allegedly chipped in $10 into * 1690 pot for sergeants. Assault and Battery The two are also accused of assault and battery in the alleged manhandling of boot or rookie Marines, A third drill instructor, Sgt. Ronald J. Heller of Milwaukee, Wis., is charged only with assault and battery. The general courts-martial of Poss and Heller will follow that of Sgt. Grant. The charges grew out of statements made by six members of Ohio's Steel Valley Platoon when home on leave last September after completing basic training at Parris Island. They told their parents of alleged mistreatment and the payoff which they said all members of the platoon made. Recruited In Jnaa The Steel Valley platoon was recruited last June in the Youngs-1 town-Warren area* The six recruits referred to in HUNTING FATALITY Youth Thinks He Kills Pal; Takes Own Life JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A farm youth accidentally wounded a young hunting companion Sunday, then panicked and killed himself. James Wescom, IS, committed suicide, in the belief he had wounded Robert Johansen fatally. He didn't know his friend, also 13, would survive. "I'm going to shoot myself," James cried after his .30-.30 rifle went off accidentally, putting a bullet through Johansen's leg. The third member of the hunting party, Fred Kuderling, 15, tried to stop James from taking his life. Gun In Mouth "He put his gun In his mouth," Sheriff Lee Dodge said. "Fred tried to wrestle it away from him, but James managed to pull the trigger." Young Johansen was hi fair condition today in a Jamestown hospital. Attending physicians said the bullet went through his right leg, below the hip. The three youths, neighbors in the Pingree area about 30 miles northwest of here, were hunting rabbits in a pasture on the Johansen farm. Kuderling told the sheriff he and Wescom were about 20 feet from young Johansen when James* gun discharged. "The boys ran over to where Bob was lying," the sheriff said. 'When James saw the blood, he thought Bob was going to die." Dr. Robert S. Woodward, Stutsman County coroner, ruled the wounding of Johansen was accidental and the death of Wescom was suicide.

GirlWon'tTake Gift Coat After Rescuing Man STRAITOBD, Conn. (AP) — Fifteen-year-old Alida Pet tit couldn't accept the gift. Not from the church. Not from anybody. Not while Herman Simmons lay in a hospital with his body covered with burns. The gift was from the First Baptist Church. The congregation, directed its pastor, the Rev. William 0. Johnson, to present Alida with $56 Sunday. She was to buy a new coat with the money. 'Don't Need Coat' "I don't need a new coat. I don't want a new coat," she sobbed. Alida a 95-pound high school sophomore, leaped from her mother's car Saturday when Simmons' garbage truck overturned and burst into flames. She tugged at the 200-pound Simmons and helped him escape through a broken window. Then she took off her coat, a Christmas present, and smothered the flames covering his body. The 36-year-old driver is in critical condition, burned over almost 60 per cent of his body. When she was asked how she came to run to Simmons' aid, Alida said: "He was screaming. I knew I couldn't let him die," Hospital Eipensee She and her father Wilbur Pettit asked the pastor to give the money to Simmons for hospital expenses. The Rev. Mr. Johnson said the church had already directed other funds for the Simmons family. Simmons is secretary of the church's board of deacons. Alida finally took the $56. Then she donated it to the Herman Simmons Fund of the First Baptist Church. "There is really nothing wrong with my coat," she said. Fir* Drives Out 260 it Mtntol Hospital TOPEKA, Kan.
