"A Threefold Cord." told of the woman preacher's life with the Rev. Mr. Shaw and his invalid wife. Dr. Royden said In her book that when she first met Mrs. Shaw, "I fell in love with her at first sight." She said "This was tne real beginning of the love that changed all our three lives. If she had not loved me and I her, what happened afterward would have been impossible." Dr. Royden lived with the Shaws for many years. She said in her book that Mrs. Shaw did not wish her husband and her friend to transgress their moral standards or hers, but' "she did want us to have all that was possible for us not love only, but passionate love." Marriage Short-Lived But, Dr. Royden wrote, they lived by the orthodox Christian standard of sex morals. Mrs. Shaw made her husband promise that he would marry Dr. Royden immediately after her death "not troubling about what people said of us," . But the marriage was short lived. The Rev.

PAY OIVLY. $1 A WEEK DEATH CREEK DATA GIVEN McKeon Trial Witness Says He Found No Pitfalls . (Co-nfinued from Page 1) Staff Sergeant Elwyn B. Scar borough, 40, of Lynchburg, S.C. The redness of his face and neck bore testimony to his hours in the sun as a senior rifle-range instructor of recruits. McKeon has admitted taking three or four drinks of vodka in his barracks room the afternoon of the death march. He was pronounced sober after the tragedy. Scarborough testified it was he who provided the vodka and who left" a partially consumed bottle in McKeon's room. Scarborough had visited McKeon's quarters the morning of April 8 after a party tne night before. Asked For Liquor "I asked Sergeant McKeon if he had any liquor," Scarborough testified, "and he said, no, he didn't keep any there. I said, "I kind of need some we had a party last night and 1 knew where there was some and I'd appreciate it if he would drive me to get it." Scarborough said McKeon drove him to pick up the vodka, that they shared a couple of drinks apiece over the course of about an hour, and that they then left the bottle behind in a paper sack. Scarborough said he intend ed to return and pick it up but never did. Shown the bottle, Scarborough said it is about as he left it nearly four months ago. It contains about two inches of vodka. Scarborough was demoted one strips by a summary court-martial for. the barracks drinking epi sode. Went To Club Later, after some errands, the two sergeants dropped into the non-commissioned officers' club of the base and went into the bar. Scarborough said they separated and he didn't know whether or not McKeon drank there. Voile, the surveyor, examined the bed of Ribbon Creek'with a rod device for ten days last June on orders of his Marine supriors. He wanted the contour of the bed and the depth of the waters in the area of the death march. He found grass and muddy clay on the fringes of the stream in areas cov ered at high tide but exposed at low tide. Near the center, which is never bared by the tide, he found a cnore stable mud base. Voile said it was hard to fix the depths of the creek at 8 P.M., April 8, because of wind, ban metric pressuFe and other factors that could have played a role at that time. But he figured that at the extreme the tide raised the stream 5.3 feet above low-water level.

Voile added that he doubted this theoretical maximum ever was reached, however, because the mouth of the creek is clogged with sand and other obstructions. He estimated the current April 8 at 1.2 m.p.h. Anything under 3 m.p.h., he added, is not considered a strong current. In crossexamination. Major Charles B. Sevier, the prosecutor, asked Voile about water depths: oure not considering anv sinkage that might have occurred in mud? "That's riEht." the witness said. Pipes, $1.50 Pipes, $30 With many prices in-between. What we want you to know is that Pipe Headquarters hat your pipe in your style at your price. We sell a $1.50 pipe as gladly as a $30.00 one. Our only thought is to please you. Voile added a man might sink eight to 12 inches in mud in certain sections of the creek bottom. This would mean the water would be that much deeper to him. The day's final witness, the third for the defense, was Dr. Benjamin M. Kraynick. a former Allentown (Pa.) orthopedic spe cialist. He now is a lieutenant at the naval hospital here. The defense has evoked evidence that McKeon was walkin? with a limp April 8 and indicated his left leg was in such condition that he couldn't have plotted too arduous a disciplinary march for his recruits. 210 EAST BALTIMORE MUlberry 5-3061 Close Saturdays 3 PJVf. .floaoeooooogqeacoooeooocgooeogaeogooeocegoor; Baltimore Towson SWIM or PLAY SHORTS in good looking plaids or checks.
