COURIER NEWS HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Wilbur Feeble Finds College Chums x Okay' Safety Drinking Suit NEW YORK WV—It was tho cvo-, ning of Wilbur Pceble's aistusili reunion with his old college i chums, a etftg affair. "I hop* you won't be lonely," he said guiltily to his wlfo, Trellis Mae. "I may be a llltlo Ifite getting home." His wife looked at him in cold silence and held out a small bundle. "What's this?" said Wilbur, aurprlsed. "It's your new drinking costume," replied Trellis Mae. "I made It for you myself, dear." "What in the world do I need with a drinking costume?" demanded her husband. Idea From Newspaper "I got the Idea from a newspaper article," purred Trellis Mne. "It told about n millionaire sportsman who took his drinking so seriously that ho dressed for it like a Viking—in a horned helmet find & suit of chain mail." "Oh, yes, I remember," said Wilbur, "The motto of the VlJcing society wns, 'a Viking can ni- wnys drink one more.' But—his voice grew indignant—"what has that go lo do with me?" It's * Safety Uniform "Well, every lime you come home from one of your college reunions you have a blnck eye, your clothes are mussed or lorn, or your shoes are souffed," said Trellis Mae. "So I invented n safety drinking uniform for you." Her husband mutely unwrapped the package. Out came his high school football helmet, a suit of green coveralls, some heavy winter overshoes, nnd a pair of heavy leather gloves. Across the front of the helmet was lettorcd n sign: "Sip In safety." "I'm not going to lake along ttils junk," Wilbur said flatly. You're being absolutely silly." "You are going to take It!" satd Trellis Mae firmly. "And you're goln# to promise me you rron'i take a single drink without first putting it on over your regular clothes—or you're not leaving this house!" Wilbur Stomps Out After half an Hour of Htirrlng debate, Wilbur .slot n pod out the door—carrying the packngo under his arm. Trellis Mac fell asleep a few hours Inter with a victory smile still on her face. At 3:30 u.m. she was nwjikenc'd by n pounding on her door. She opened It and s»w a policeman holding a nightstick in one hnnrt — and (.he sanding form of her husband in the othor. Wilbur was wearing his overshoes and cover a! l.i and blinked owllsbly at her from beneath his old toot- ball helmet. "Docs this thing belong to you, ma'am?" nskctl the policeman, pointing to Wilbur, "Yes, I'm afraid so," sighed Trellis nine. "Do you wnnt me to •sign for him, officer?" "No, just tnXe him off my hands," said the cop, "He said he lived here but I thought he wrv? a prowler from Mars or something." Wilbur undressed climbed with tired gratitude Into bed. Trellis Mac lay wide-eyed mid sleepless In the next bed. "Well?" .she finally demanded. "I sure look a kidding from the boys when I first unwrapped the bundle." sniil Wilbur. "But after n couple of drinks they all wanted to wear the costume, too. I had an awful time gelling it, hack fron them when Hie parly broke up." "H-m-m-m-m," snld his wife.

KLAKKSLEE sAociated JPrewi Science Reporter J3OSTON (/I 1 ;—A way of making lile patnle«i Is being studied here as an aid for cancer sufferers. Deep In the center of the brain is a spot which scientists believe, the crossroads of pain pathways. Tor most pains you feel. Here at M^sachusetU General Hospital, scientists aie experimenting with an electric needle. They plrm to push It into this point in the brain, anil destroy the crow- roads with an electric spark. "They told me to ask you, as a favor, to design another uniform lor us—one not quite so heuvy." "And what Es the nntne of your now .society, may 1 nsk," said Trellis Mne Icily. "The Snfety Sippers Club," an swei'ed Wilbur drowsily. "Our motto IK, 'what you sip safely can't hurt you.' " Destroying ft would apparently mean freedom from pain, a Godsend for many cancer patients. The electric needle method has been tried so far on monkeys, preparatory to human trials, .said Dr. William H. Sweet, n euro -surgeon. Apparently, he .-said, this method could kill pain ea^iy, without changing personalty. Pain can be stopped by cutting the nerves in the front of the brain, In an operation called pre-f rental lobotomy, but this often brings bad personality changes. If the needle works, a person might feel no pain, from aTci/xit anything. Complete freedom from p«in could be bad for normal hu mans—you wouldn't, for example, know that you were burning your fingers with a lighted match.
