I do not mind admitting I was scared the first few times that I walked on my crutches alone, but I soon gained confidence, and after many hours of practice. I developed » good walking habit. Stair Climbing Hardest Next came stair climbing, which Is perhaps the most difficult task a paralytic with leg involvement can attempt. Another thing ;reat Importance Is learning how o fall properly. This may seem odd. but It can keep one from get- in? hurt. ' Meanwhile, my program of stretching was continued. At times It seemed I would never get my muscles stretched out. After my walking habits were fixed I began to get out. I was very glad of this because spending four or five months In bed or a wheel chair, one learns to appreciate the abilities that he once had In getting around. I do not remember what it was like to walk without my crutches and the heavy weight of those braces pulling at my legs. In June, I started to school—partly to take up time and as a chance to pick up an extra credit. I enjoyed having something to make me actually think.

I do know that,, at WASHINGTON W>) — Spokesmen 'or organized beer sellers and for he Women's Christian Temperance Union agreed today that youths inducted under universal military raining (UMT) should be protected from the evits of drink. One beverage representative urged :hat trainees be required to wear a distinctive non-detachable insignia so bartenders could tell at a glance they are minors. . fn statements prepared for the House Armed Services Committee both group.'; urged that Congress write into the proposed UMT law adequate safeguards to protect the trainees from hard liquor and strong beer. The committee is considering modified UMT bill under which 60,000 volunteers would be taken-for six months' training plus 18 month: active duty. ' Military officials have asked this as a starter to gain experience foi any full-fledged UMT program. They told the committee that the 60,000 volunteers would be drafted next year If they are not absorbed In UMT. The committee called a session today In a drive to conclude the UMT healings early next week. The iugge-stion for an Insignia that would help bartenders recog- , ntze trainees came from Rocco B. Bunino of Blairstown, N. J., representing the. National Licensed Beverage Association. He did not comment on UMT as a principle. "We do not want as customer! under-age iiersons, whether they have military status or civilian status," Bunino said. Miss Elizabeth Smart reiterate^ the opposition of the WCTU to universal military training, which sh« referred to as "peacetime conscription." But if Congress decides that UMT (s necessary, she said, it should "not shirk Its own responsibility" of making sure that beer or liquor are not sold in training areas.

" But If ihe present pence negotiations break down, Kefauvcr believer UN strategy umy have to be revised, with the bsmblng of Man- churlflti bases advisable. Kctauver has defended Secretary of State Achcson and supported the Democratic administration foreign policy. But he has criticized the North Atlantic Treaty Organization ns being too weak and nn- MiUect for swift and united action io brick up General Eisenhower.
