PAGEFOyRTEEN BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Bum's Rush Urged for Communists _ ATLANTIC CITY, N. j., Sept. 16. (UP)—James F. O'Neil, national commander of the American Le(ion, said today that juvenile de- Unquency is "America's Public Enemy No. 1" and called on the nation's radio broadcasters to ban programs thai'might ciamoiize crime. 6'Neil, addressing a meeting of the National Association of Broadcasters' 23th annual convention, ul- so. urged the radio industry to give American Communists "the bum's rush" off the air and said (hat the Legion is in favor of American aid to foreign .countries. Regarding 1 crime programs. Ih2 Legion commander assured his audience that the Legion was not proposing censorship of radio. . •;Broadcasters ,he said, should ''taHe it ; upon themselves to bar any entertainment which might foster disrespect for authority or glamorize violations of law." "Many youngsters," O'Ncil said, "spend a good' part of their day with ears glued to Hie radio. Thc.y lack the mental capacity to distinguish between good and evil," He said he had personal experience with hundreds of youthful 1 law-breakers whose conduct was traceable to impressions mndc by radio crime dramas, as well as "dime novel thrillers" and certain movies. Richard P. Doherly, director of NAB cmployc-cn !.;loj«r relations, told the convention that American capitalism will be "washed up" if labor-management problems arc not settled.

IKC XXIX- WHAT he ale for dial dinner al the Woodwards', what was said,- what was done, Malcolm scarcely knew. When the guests were free at last lo go their separate wiiys, he asked Martin to take him Ho the Hospital, lie would spend the night there, Martin agreed to this without question, recognizing one of Malcolm's migraine attacks. He wanted-to ask Doc what was'bother- ing him beside the head—but there was a stillness about his-brother he .did not dare violate.' Malcolm appreciated this taot from Martin. He would not have cared to explain that he stayed here-in the Hospital because of an unwillingness to force himself upon Nancy. He didn't believe lhat she really meant to divorce him—but while she thought she believed that, he must help her keep her pride. It was incredible to think his home could be broken hy^iVqrce. Had Nancy'given any thought at all to the children? Even if she didn't love Malcolm— even if she did love Andrew >Voodward—surely she could not let the family melt down into slimy nothingness! /Drained by a night of emotion and 'pbiri, Malcolm dragged himself out of bed the next morning, showered, shaved, dressed in his whites, 'and went out to his desk. . lie asked tor some coffee to be sent up. Walking as if on a lliin crust over boiling lava, speaking carefully, watching his hands as if they belonged to a beginning intern, he got himself through the morning. He even remembered to send home for some clothes to replace his tail coat and boiled shirt He could not wear that outfit to (he Staff luncheon, nor did he choose to attend in white linen. Going in to speak to Pop, hoping Ir Bounded composed on this daily visit, ho suggested that McAn sit it the head of the lahle, give a proper welcome to Dr. Grcgor. * * • :30P snorted. "Drool down my • chin for his edification!" he cried. "I'll sec him, and talk to lim—hut not while trying to put food into my mouth with the hands I have to use. What's the matter with you, Malcolm?' Sick?" "Head, Bad ns 1 ever had." Pop nodded sympathetically. Think this Grcgor's all he's cracked >.ip to be?" he asked. Malcolm drew a deep brcalh. "I hope so! 11 he said tensely. "By George, I hope so!" Still v:alkin(! warily, Malcolm went lo the Stall luncheon, a look his eyes so cold.'y forbidding that few even greeted him. The Manager brought Dr. Grejjor in, introduced him to Malcolm. Dr. Glenn shook hands with the new Surgeon, indicated the chair nt his right hand. He was stiffly inclined lo he coui'lcous and reserved— no more—to Grcgor, coining here. as he did, under the banner ol Dr. Andrew Woodward. The strange doctor, on his part, was quiet and watchful; he spoke in an easy, friendly fashion to those who came up and greeted him as Malcolm mentioned their names and positions. Sitting nt Dr. Glenn's side, his quiet poise was restful; he was a slender, well-dressed man, not personally handsome, nor sccmhig lo make any effort lo establish himself, lo make himself liked. Thai, too, was reassuring. Malcolm could feel himself relax. The little demons mercifully loosed the band they had been pulling about his head. Sighing a lilllc in'his relief, Malcolm picked up his fork and began lo cat; it might have been Martin who sat beside him. Surprised at this idea, Malcolm tinned in his chair to look again at G r e n o r. The Orthopedist glanced up, met Malcolm's puz- /.Icd eyes, and he smiled. 11 is honiclj' face lit u|) as wilh an inward flame; his dark eyes glowed, ills bijj month spread wider with good-natured, keen humor. Malcolm smiled in return and nodded his head, lie liked this fellow. • • • A NDREW WOODWAtiD came in 10 minutes after everyone was seated and busy with the roast beef and new peas, lie slro'Je into the room, smiling broadly, his red head gleaming. He came up lo Gregor, his hand ouls'.relched, forceful personality l>ln/ing about lim like a nimbus. "I am sorry 'm late, Doctor," he said heartily. '! got tied up with a childhood lilment peculiar .to springtime. Another 3-ycar-old fell of! his tri- :ycle. 1 particularly wanlcd to be here lo introduce you, and give you Ihe low-down on these Buys." Dr. Grcgor smiled, slightly, and lodded toward Malcolm. "Dr. Glenn has done the honors," he said in his steady, warm voice. Andrew laughed, his hand upon ie new doctor's shoulder. "I'll bet he hasn't explained that he was agin your coming here, Doctor." Gregor turned lo look, not at Woodward, but al Glenn. "I've oflcn heard whal a smart man he was," he said clearly. Those about the table grinned. Malcolm's mouth twislcd wryly. "When Woodward said he thought he could get you for the Lair, Dr, Gregor, 1 was afraid he spoke loo hopefully. 1 am glad now lhal A was mistaken." Gregor nodded. "Thank you. fSul it was not Dr. Woodward who 'got me' for your Hospital. Do yon call it the Lair? That's quite good. No, Dr. Glenn—it was you who 'got me.' When I heard That Ihe wing was being built, I (bought perhaps I would ask for (he appointment because of the chance it would give me to work with you." His eyes clung to Malcolm's for a moment of complete underslanding. As unobtrusively as possible, Andrew Woodward went lo sit in his chair around the curve or the big (able. His eyes were sullen; his undcrlip clamped itself lighUy over his thin upper one. (To rtr f'nntiniin.n * Free Delivery CaU PICKARD'S GROCERY I'hone 2043 1011 Chickasawba I SKIP THE OLD PAL STUFF!
