POITIERS, FRANCE, April 16 (UP) — A 31-year-old Brooklyn soldier who disappeared from his American World War 2 unit and turned up 11 years later as a_ French Army hero went on trial • here today on charges of deser-| tion. ! Pvt. Vito Sala faces a possible death sentence on the charge that he deserted the 339th Infantry Regiment of the U. S. 100th Infantry Division in 1945. But the general courts martial will hear an almost incredible tale of an amnesia victim who fought heroically with the French Foreign Legion in Algeria and Indochina. The tale is supported by French credentials and the testimony of^psychiatrists. Sala turned himself in to American authorities at La Rochelle last October. He said he had suffered from loss of memory and asked them to try to trace his past. U. S. Army records disclosed that Sala was listed as absent without' leave from the 100th Di vision after a battle near Heil bron, Germany, in April, 1945, Sala said he lost his memory during a shock and partially regained it only during later shocks when he was fighting in Indochina and Algeria. French officials supplied a bushel of testimonials to back Sala's claim. St. Louis is at Cincinnati with Herb Wehmeier facing Johnny Klippstein. New York Giants at Pittsburgh.

There are an estimated 700 shoe X-ray machines now in operation throughout Ohio, mostly in the big cities. The state health department said it tested and examined approximately 200 and found that not more than 10 to 15 percent "meet currently accepted standards for protection against radiation and electrical shock." In five seconds, the department said, some of the machines can deliver more than 33 times the normal amount of radiation con sidered safe for an industrial worker during an entjre week.

They had to go to Japan to find one. The 1.100 inhabitants of the island in the mouth of Chesapeake! Bay 12 miles from the Virginia mainland have been looking for a doctor for four years, ever since the island's Methodist pastor suffered a heart attack and lay 17 days in bed without medical treatment. The Virginia Council of Health and Medical Care offered to help the islanders find one. The coun- {oil with the help of a Chicago placement bureau finally found Dr. Mikia Kato of Kobe, Japan. He promised to try it for a year. The young, slightly-built doctor arrived from Japan Monday by plane. All the island turned to give him a great welcome. Then they escorted the grinning doctor to a $12,000 medical center that they had built for him. "I like fishing people and 1 like fish," he said, happily.
