I have no excuse for it except I was terribly young and naive. I don't think I can be blamed for the image that publicity made of me, but I was responsible for doing a succession of bad jobs in bad pictures." After a six - year association, Miss Laurie left her studio. She was 23 at the time. "Some people applauded me for what they called my courage, integrity and wisdon, but my reasons weren't noble at all," sighed Miss Laurie.

Christopher L. Magee, 40, Chicago, was the latest alleged bandit to be caught in the snares of relentless law enforcement authorities. He was arrested only last week and charged with the $46,000 holdup of a South Bend bank last Jan; 15, Indiana's first such holdup of 1957.

The biggest was at Fort Wayne, where three men got $50,104 only six weeks ago and vanished. They still have not been caught and the loot, naturally, has not been recovered. Likewise, the three men who robbed a Mount Summit bank of $6,000 Nov. 18 escaped capture thus far in the state's most recent bank holdup. Otherwise, the story was a different one.

But the NAACP said also that Negro schools get secondary buildings and teachers, while white schools get preferential treatment in both categories. Birchmai said the NAACP does not think the Chicago school board Association for the Advancement of Colored People has accused the Chicago Board of Education of using policies of racial discrimination. Robert L. Birchman, Illinois NAACP, director, said Saturday that in many ways Chicago schools practice racial discrimination "more than they do in Little Rock." The board denied the charge, but practices discrimination by intent.
