Dark-haired, dark-eyed Betty Thompson died late yesterday afternoon, ' valiant to the end. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. P.

"I am ready to die," she told her family yesterday. "Don't break windshield and windows will be available at extra cost on all models, down or grieve for me when I am gone." The disease made it necessary to amputate her right leg in 1M9. Last May her doctor told her she waa incurably ill. A little later, Betty broke her engagement to Tom Amburn, her U-year-old sailor sweetheart, of Sioux Falls, S. D. "I'm not mad at him," she said. "But I think It be»t to end our engagement under the circumstances, I love Tom, Just like I love everybody else."
