Pureell, state supervisor of transportation for school children, s»id U>day that 80 per cent of Georgia's school buses do not meet safety standards set by the National ; Committee on Safety Education. ; Purcell said many of the buses, which transport an estimated 185,' 825 school children daily, arc old and outmoded and thai 'many counties do' not have reserve funds to buy new buses. : Twenty-five per cent oi (he buses, ' he estimated, have very dangerous wooden bodies. He said four out of live do not carry fire extinguishers or first aid kits. Three out of Jive do noc have effective "stop anus" to halt traffic while students losi I and unload. A large number do not have effective brakes. Purcell suggested that the state should take over the operation of school buses rather than leave it to '. the counties. .-..../ -oolden -orain Means Golden Uays : '<&*• fi Flood Waters Reveal Vein Of Coal, Ancient Bones RICHMOND, JIo. t UP)—The results of the recent summer floods • of the Missouri basin weren't oil bad.

XXIV 'liw-l-'v TN the operating theater lhal •^ morning, Malcolm worked like an intern, diffidently and uncev- ainly. He went back down to meet some office appointments feeling as old as Andrew had called him. lie was baffled at the skill with which Woodward had set him in the wrong. Malcolm -.vas not clever enough to fight" such a man alone. He'd need help—and he knew where to seek it. There was one person he could count on—always. Martin He'd go to Martin, ask him to tell him' honestly abqut his migraine 'Miss Perry," said Dr. Glenn briskly, ns he went into his suite "will you ask my brother lo conic into .ny. office?" ' "He's' in there already, Doctor," said Susan. Malcolm strode through the big joffice, into the examination room. [beyond. Martin stood staring out lot the window, his hand smooth- ling his dark hair. "I wanted to sec [youj Marty—" Malcolm began. 1 wanted to sec you," his [brother broke In. ; Malcolm took a fresh coat from ja hanger in his locker. "What Jabout? You sound serious." j Martin turned, and leaned his <wide shoulders against the window 'frame. ''Darned serious, Doc," he Isaid .quietly. "I — I hope you take jthis thing as I mean it. ! Malcolm's fingers faltered over ]the things he was clipping to his (pocket — pen, pencil, thormomelcr. ("Let's have il," he said tightly. wondering if Martin, too, was so- jing to advise him to retire. i Again Martin's hand stroked hi '(black hair. "1 thought 1 should break the news lo you privately, )oe. Not spring it on you nt the Directors' meeting. But—I'm planning to turn in my resignation ;rom the Staff. I'm leaving the Hospital." Malcolm gulped. "What ore you 'iiiR to do?" Martin nodded. "Well, sir, there's an opportunity lo tlo re- scaich at the Medical Center in New York that 1 don't think 1 should turn down. You sec, Doc, while I'm grateful as all get-out for what you've done for me, and I admire yun tremendously—I am still a person in inv own right. And I'm pretly sure the lime lias come for me to separate from you, and to try to make somethini! of n professional name and identity for myself. You sec, Doc, horc in (he Lair, I'm Dr. Malcolm Glenn's brother, and always will be." Malcolm sloopccl lo pick up his discarded jacket; he put it down the chute and closed the little door r cry carefully. "You're right. 1 expect. Marly," lie said slowly. I'll miss you like the dickens, but do want lo be fair. You're prob- ibly as right as rain—you should get out. And I'll do nothing to stand in your way. Will you take Susan when you go?" Martin lifted one shoulder. "If she'd go, I'd lake her." "Won't she go? Have you asked her? I mean, have you told hei you're leaving?" No, I wanted you lo know first But—I don't need to tell her, or ask her. 1 don't believe sho'd leave you." His dnrk face was bitter "That isn't right, Marly!" Martin's hand reached for '.he knob of the door. "Yon know d well it isn't right!" he cried TEHUY thought, "I'll •* in on Doc just nt 'i't i" their l\vo ce:vtj v.'ortU.

Jerry stood aside until he h cl finished when, at Malcolm's nod, r went into the olTice. "Sit down, Jerry. Is Ilicre pomc- ing special on your mind?" Malcolm iiskcd in tin absent-minded tone Jerry marked out the pattern oi Hie soft rug with the rubber ferrule of his cane. "Jl was something special, Doc," ho ?;iid nmffly. Malcolm snt down -^\ his desk, look otf his glasses. "Let's have it," be said, bis lone kind. Jerry's flat checks flushed. 'I— Doc, I want to change over from the study of medicine lo some- linfj else." Tlinre! It was out! ! ow he need just sit back and nswer Doc's arguments. He had not thought his father vould loo!; so stunned. As if Jerry nd struck below the belt. "Doc, —" the young man faltered. Malcolm rubbed his hand over n's eyes. "This hits me pretty ard, Jcny. 1 hr.d made sonic •athcr rosy plans for you and your >rofes.sioL)al career." "I know, sir. I—it's just that 'm not sure 1 was meant to be a loctor. There arc so many yenrs of work abend—and when you're lot sure—why, I'd be loo old to start anything else—" "What else do you want lo do?" Malcolm inquired. 'I'm not sure of thr.t cither—" Jerry admitted unhappily. "Jerry," Malcolm said then, 'will you do oj)e tiling for me?" "If I can, Doc," said the young man readily. "I'd like you lo tinish this present term. That will give you a ittle time to think over this idea, to see if il really is the decision you want to make." Jerry looked thoughtful, then he nodded. "O.K., Doc," be . L aid in a tone of relief. "I'll do that for your sake." Malcolm siiiiicd, as if he v;cre very weary. "I was asking you to do it for your own sake, Jerry." ^ (To 15c Continued) Free Delivery CaU PICKARD'S GROCERY Phone 20-13 1011 Chitkasawlja 7 Crown Colverf .
