(UP)— 8torm-w*«ry South Florida, struggling to recover from a disastrous September hurricane, buttoned r up ajuln today and anxiously watched the progress of- a mar-hurricane blow working its way northeast from Cuba. Red Cross disaster workers rushed to organize a string of shelters along the Florida Keys and set up three emergency hospitals In Dade County at the state's southern tip. An 8:30 a.m. weather advisory said the • storm had moved across ex- tr»me western Cuba and was centered on the north Cuban const 50 to so miles west of Havana.

(UP) — Forty monkeys are going to be squeezed Into (outidatloir garments for the "new look" Just to find out what corsets do to tlielr Innards. Dr. Andrew C. Ivy, Chicago, vice- president of the University of Illinois, will lace the slmlani Into figure-moulding unmentionables to prove his theory that tight corsets help cause stomach ulcer*. He plariA to keep the monkeys In corsets for two years. Ivy propounded his Ili'eory yesterday before a post-graduate physicians' conference sponsored by the Illinois Stale Medical Society. He said tlic monkeys' corset* will lie (he snme type that French cou lurlers are now trying to Induce American women to we:ir. The experiment will cost about. $5.000. Ivy said, but lie didn't say whether that would be for the monkeys, Ihelr corsets or what. The results of the rxtXTiment will be. included in a new liook Ivy Is writing on the peptic ulcer. According to statistics gathered since 1BOO, he said, about five per cent of all persons have peptic ulcers at sonjc lime or other during their lives, That's proven by autopsies on bodies wlilch'show cJther ulcers or ulcer scars, he said. Ivy found (hat up to about 20 years ago women have four to five limes as many gastric ulcers as men. Mow the proportion ifi exactly reversed. Ivy said the change began when women shucked off the tight corsets worn during the Victorian era and tinned dapper. No tight gnr- meni.s, no pressure on the mldscc lion — no ulcers. That's his theory. But v.hlle the women were leaving off their corsets, the men were changing their comfy old red gal- louses for belts that drew them up In I he middle like a laundry sack. Kcsult, more ulcers ainong men. Ivy said that girdles don't appear to do so much harm because they "tend to conllnc the hips rather than the waist." Firemen answered a call to the residence ot Miss c. Swlnk, 018 West Ash, early this morning when an oil healer flared up. Tfo damage resulted. jStorm Stopper* Prepared SCHENECTADY, N. Y., Oct. 11. (UF)i-A B-17 bomber reportedly T«8 ready to tnke of! from Schenectady airport today with supplies of dry Ice and chemicals to be sprinkled Into a tropical storm oft Cuba.

Informed sources said (hat two aircraft, a B-17 and .(i B-2fl, already have left the local airport for undisclosed bases after Ihe : crews were briefed In storm-control ; techniques. The remaining plnnc ; was described as the "seeder" which : would drop dry Ice Into storm clouds. Scientists explained that.

PALESTINE (Continued from Page 1) mandatory power," he said. The mandatory power Is Great Britain. which has told the assembly that it is terminating its Palestine mandate, will vacate the Holy Land »t an early date and will not help cany out any Palestine solution not acceptable both to Arabs and Jews. Johnson said the United States was willing to join- In "a United Gallons program to assist the par,les involved (Arabs.. Jews and British! in the establishment of a workable political settlement In Palc-stltie." "We refer lo asststance through :hc United Nations in meeting economic and financial problems and the problem of internal law and order during the transition period." This apparently means that the United states will not send Its own troops to support partition, but will help Ihe UN recruit some sort of International army to put down any disorders and organized uprisings. Before Johnson addressed the Palestine committee. Great Britain proposed that all 57 united Nnllon? take prompt measures to absorb their "Talr share" or the displaced persons and refugees of Europe.
