A good golfer and excellent horseman, he was on football, baseball and tennis teams in college. ' f i"T He was born 111 llU glnia, and at the age of 6 went West with his family to Kansas at the time when "buf-falos still roamed Dr. m i. imsssi me prairies, ne remembers a Dodge City which was nearly as tough as the recent movie about that town. He remembers men carrying guns as a matter of course and the sight of bleached buffalo bones lining the railroad tracks. In fact, he remembers the West as it was before mechanization and law caught up with it The first paid job he had was as a printer's devil on a small newspaper. Although only 13 at the time, it was this experience that got him interested in "fine printing," hU greatest hobby. He believes that if you get printer's ink on your finger, it never rubs off. Prom the University of Oklahoma (where he picked up a Phi Beta Kappa key as well as three letters) he came East to attend the New York State library School in Albany and then got his doctorate at New York University. He went back to his alma mater as chief librarian and then was called to Brooklyn to help build the ingersoll Memorial Library. For a man with the blood of pioneers in his veins, he has very little taste for change, and lives in the same house he came to 13 years ago, upon first arriving in Brooklyn. He and his wife. Rose (whom he met at college where she was a librarian), and his daughter, Ruth, live at 115 Willow St. Medium height with gray-blaclj hair, he likes to relax in his large luxuriantly furnished office, lined with his own books. One of his most treasured possessions is a copy of Dante's "Inferno," printed on velum, of which only 12 copies exist His greatest passion is collecting books which are well bound and printed. Thomas Hardy, Willa Cather and Walt Whitman are three of his favorite authors. A member of the Grolier Club, the Chamber of Com merce and the Rotary Club, he is known as a great story-teller. Historical Year Book Huntington, March 31 Historical studies of each town of Suffolk County and articles of general In terest on police work will be included in the forthcoming year book of the Suffolk County Police Association, according to William Weyrauch, Huntington patrolman, president of the organization.

U.S. Plane Comes Home But Fluke Kills Britisher Marauder Station, England, March 30 (U.R) It was a small bit of metal, no larger than a man's fist, but it killed the British sergeant instantly and Lt. Richard H. Lightflne of 23 Delmar St., Garden City, Long Island, said he felt like crying when he saw the body curled beneath the tree. All the way home across the Channel, Lightflne had struggled desperately to control the crippled Marauder bomber, its wing flaps gone and its landing gear shattered by flak over Cherbourg. Then as he was coming down on the emergency coastal landing strip he saw some 100 Britisn soldiers scattering Serious Dentist, Doctor Shortage Seen in Few Years A serious shortage of doctors and dentists In the next few years is predicted by Dr. Willard C. Rap-pleye, dean of Columbia University's Medical School. The shortage, he says, will result from a War Department ruling which will reduce by 50 percent the number of students assigned to medical colleges by the army. Instead of admitting 5,800 medical and dental students, as was originally planned, only 2.800 will be assigned to medical schools in the term beginning in January, he said. Dr. Rappleye expressed fears that "we shall not have enough students to fill our clases after this year." To relieve partially the prospects of empty medical schools he recommended a return to the 12-month schoolyear. Under present accel. erated courses medical doctors are graduated in three years instead of the usual four, and new classes are admitted every nine months. According to Dr. Rappleye, this has resulted in lowering of medical standards which he prefers to see raised since the army is apparently satisfied with the number of doctors lt will get under the new quotas.

He almost succeeded, risking his life and those of his crew with belly landing at the edge of the field, but one wing caught on tree and shattered. A single piece struck the sergeant. "In a way it almost was worse killing one man than if I had hit several," Lightflne said. "It was such an unlucky fluke, and such a damned personal thing seeing' him lying there." But the British soldiers themselves said Lightflne did a "bloody nne Job of flying." Scout Directors Hear Assistant National Chief Ralph H. Mozo, assistant national director of senior scouting, welcomed representatives of all Boy Scout troops in the borough yesterday at Boylan Hall, Brooklyn College. He addressed district and neighborhood commissioners and chairmen of committees on "The Value of Senior Scouting in Brooklyn." Pointing out that senior scouting is part of a program designed to meet the needs and Individual interests of scouts above 16 years, he spoke on the three extensions, sea scouting, explorer scouting and a new program of air scouting.

But yes terday, with holes in her sides big enough to drive a Jeep in, she brought seven of her crewmen J50 miles back to Britain. Two waist gunners ana a lau gunner went down with her on her final Dlunge into tne unannei alter all the others had parachuted to safety at the home field. The action began over itneims when a direct flak hit caught the Fortress squarely amidships just after the bomb load was released. "We had iust made the bomb run when the flak got us," said 1st Lt. Daniel C. Henry, of 191-35 116th Ave., St. Albans, L. I., the pilot. "Exploding shells blew out both sides of the ship's midriff, cutting the elevator rudder control .cables. The ship went into a 5,000-foot dive. We brought her out with tne automatic pilot and started catching up with others in our squadron. We couldn't keep up so they sent back 12 P-38s to escort us. We bumped along with only two main top struts and two at bottom holuing the nose and tall together. "We reached our home field with enough gas for four hours' flying and wanted to land but we were ordered to land at a North England field where the runways were longer. We were unable to find the field and we returned home again and asked permission to land. When the commanding officer spotted the holes in the side he ordered everyone but the pilot and copilot ball out. Engineer Tech. Sgt. Sebastian Quaresma, 457 W. 125th St., New York City, who spliced the plane's damaged rudder control back to gether, was one of the men who came down near the field. "Right after the explosion," Qua Russell Sees U. S. As Great Western Postwar Power Bertrand Russell, 71-year-old English mathematician and philosopher, believes the United States rather than Britain will come out of the war as the great Western power of the future and that the prospects for lasting peace after the war are "not very good." He made that lugubrious forecast because, he said in an interview, "the two greatest world powers America and Russia have not arrived at any long-run understanding". In order to arrive at world neace. Russia must have a long-run under standing with England as well as the United States, and he added: "Russia will be a good deal to blame for the faulty peace because she doesn't want a world government and nothing less will secure world peace." Mr. Russell, who has been in this country since 1938 and is planning 10 return io .ungiana, became something of a major issue in New York in 1940, when he was anoolnted to teach mathematics in City College. The appointment was revoked, by court order, on the ground of his unorthodox views on sex as expressed in his book "Mar riage and Morals" and elsewhere. Mrs. Jean Kay, a Brooklyn house wife, brought the action which resulted in the revocation.
