Wednesday Evening, November 27, 1957. Josephine Lowmon Memory Expert Got That Way Out of Personal Need Mental exercise is one of the roads to prolonged youthfuln.es!. For several days now I have been bringing you some of the inspiration and benefit I derived from a visit with Doctor Bruno Furst, distinguished teacher and memory expert. His background is almost as fascinating as he and his course are. I think you would enjoy hearing something about it. So many good things grow out of someone's personal need. Doctor Furst took a course in memory when he was a very young man because he was embarrassed by an inability to remember as well as his classmates in law school. He told me that his colleagues used to tease him about his poor memory. However, he soon turned the tables! The course greatly increased -hi; power to-remember. He found this ability of the utmost value while a student and later on when practicing law. Doctor Furst was 'primarily a very successful lawyer. You can imagine what an asset such a memory was in remembering facts about his clients, case histories, laws and statutes. Because of its value to him he became interested in memory training and its application to all walks of life. The course today is very different from the one he took so many years ago. He has added to it and simplified it. He told me that it is the result of about 40 years work. Doctor and Mrs. Furst came to the United States in 193B when Hitler came into power. They had fled Germany five years before that because Doctor Furst had been outspoken in his opposition to Hitler. From 1918-1933 Doctor Furst was an attorney in Frankfort, Germany. From 1933-38. he was Assistant Professor of Psychology (memory) at Nasaryk People's University in Prague. He left Czechoslovakia when Hitler invaded Austria and came to the United States. He often has appeared on tele- Angel Apron! Bank Robbery Suspect Held CHICAGO (UP) — Christopher Lyman Magee, 40, a soldier of fortune and World War H hero, was held on S20,000 oond here today in connection with the $46,320 holdup of the Lincoln Way West Branch of the National Bank and Trust Co. in South Bend, Ind., last Jan. 15. Magee was arrested by FBI agents Tuesday while being arraigned in Federal Court here on his guilty plea to charges he twice robbed the Reserve Savings and Loan Association of Cicero, 111. He was arrested for the Cicero robberies Oct. 16. The ex-Marine flying ace was Ann Landers Girl's Engagement Diamond, A Chip, Disappoints Mother Dear Ann: I accepted an engagement ring from my fiance a month ago. It's about one-fifth of a carat diamond with a small scallop on either side of the solitaire. My mother has made several remarks about the size of the ring. She thinks it's too small a stone compared with the rings the girls at church have been getting. Theirs must have cost about $500 or more. My fiance is a hard-working boy and he chose the ring he thought I would like, also the size stone he could pay for. I know he could ,have spent a little more and got taken to South Bend for arraign-ia bigger one, but he isn't the type ment before a U.S. commissioner, who continued his case until Monday. Magee earned an ace's rating as a Marine flyer in the South Pacific. After the war, he became a soldier of fortune and flew for the Canadian and Israeli air forces before coming her. to put everything into a ring. That chip will last as long as the Hope Diamond. Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man and they don't wear out—even the smallest ones. Let's hope the chip on mother's shoulder disappears, however. She has no right to urge you to try for a bigger stone. Tell her you like the ring and that you're not running in a contest with the "girls at church". * * # /Dear Ann: My husband is almost 50.

How can chil- I have news for your mother.. dren have any respect for parents with such things going on? I've pleaded with him to stop this nonsense for the sake of the children but he pays no attention. Once when he nagged me until I was practically crazy, I slapped him. He gave me a busted lip and I couldn't eat any solid food for two days. I don't want to break' up my home, but I can't go on like this much longer. Please hurry some advice,—MRS. J. B. If your husband actually believes you are entertaining men friends, in spite of the fact that he hasn't been able to churn up a speck of evidence, he is mentally ill. Enlisting the aid of his children to spy on their mother is in itself a symptom that he has slipped a stitch. Urge him to get professional help. Tell him that life under these conditions is unbearable and unless he makes, an effort to get himself back on the track, he can headquarter elsewhere. * * # Dear Ann: I read a letter recently in your column from a wife and mother who was yearning to Lugansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Thirty-one get out of the house and go back to work, "downtown". She said she didn't care if it cost her more money to hire someone to take care of her home and children than she made on the job. She was just fed-up with housework and domestic duties. This woman must be dizzy. After 11 years of being a housewife I was forced, last year, to go back to work when my husband passed away. Let me tell you, fighting for a seat on the bus, punching a clock, and coming home at night to an empty house is no fun. Now I really appreciate the advantages of being able to stay at home. I could do my work when I wanted to and took a nap when I was tired. Ironing ruffled curtains was a lot easier than making five carbons every time my boss opens his mouth. You gals who have a man to bring home the chops are lucky. Stay at home and whistle while you work.—VOICE OF YOU KNOW WHAT * * * CONFIDENTIALLY: DAWN M.: Time alone will tell.

Mrs. Furst, a petite, pretty woman, works with her husband. She teaches in their school and is an expert in her own right. She is so charming that I asked Doctor Furst if he had created his course in order to be" sure that his wife would not forget him. However, he doesn't impress me as having had any such trouble. I also asked him if he .could teach folks to forget as well as remember, but he thinks we all forget far too much as it is. It is truly stimulating to know Biat a man with Doctor Furst's mental ability was once handicapped by a poorer than average memory. He and his pupils are proof positive that we can all greatly improve our ability to remember. Mental exercise is also one of the roads to prolonged youthfulness.

He picked the soccer pool ticket that won them $120,<|95. Wood, 76 other policemen, and one policewoman at Brixton are in a syndicate which collectively bets $22.40 in a soccer pool each week. After many months of disappointment, they learned Tuesday that Wood picked this week's winner and that the whole group will share the top prize.

His tong-delayed trial will open Monday in Federal Court here before Judge Cale J Holder. Blum's attorneys filed a motion Monday for permission to examine documentary evidence collected by the government for use in the trial. Holder overruled the motion within 24 hours. Court-appointed defense attorneys Palmer Ward and Rufus Kuykendall contended such pretrial inspection of govornment documents would expedite the trial. Holder turned down the request but said he would be liberal in granting time during the trial for the defense to study documents after direct examination of government witnesses. 5833 By UNITED PKESS ATHENS — Vice Adrn.
