Teddy, the younger of the two animals, was mercifully killed, last night by a bullet from the gun of Patrolman Howard Gay in order to end his suffering. Apparently well after his long winter's sleep and showing a healthy appetite, Teddy was taken ill on Sunday and when he failed to improve yesterday the owner decided When the police arrived to kill Ted dy, Bruno ran to a far corner of the cage and watched with a saddening look as Teddy gave one quiver and then rolled over dead when the bullet entered his head. Bruno appears lonesome and seems to be at a loss to understand what it is all about. In the meantime it is planned to get a companion to take the place of Teddy.

Boston, April 25 (JP) A movement to get an advisory opinion from the Supreme Court on whether the Legislature or county commissioners has the right to reapportion the state's representative districts was under way at the Slate House today, Members of the legislative redis ricting committee frankiy admitted the decision would effect party strength in future legislatures. . Democrats would gain, they said, if the county boards assigned the districts-while Republicans prefer to have the' Legislature, where they hold a commanding majority, make the district lines. Some legislators contend the authority of the legislature extends only to apportioning the senatorial districts and that the county commissioners break these down into representative districts.

HEDGES WANTS TO HEAR DOWNEY Proposes Commissioner be Called Before Committee on Teachers Colleges Closing. Boston, April 25 (P) A suggestion that Education Commissioner Walter' F. Downey be called before the Legislature's education committee on the proposed closing of four state teachers colleges was made yesterday by Representative Charles W. Hedges (R., Quincy). Hedges, a member of the committee, said he would recommend that Downey provide a "complete financial picture" of all nine normal schools and the Massachusetts State college at Amherst. Gov. Saltonstall's recommendation that the Hyannis, Worcester, Wesffleld and North Adams schools be closed caused a storm of protest at a legislative hearing last week. Downey's absence from that hearing came as a surprise to many and led the governor to deny he had instructed the commissioner to stay away. Later, in a statement, Downey explained he was attending a conference in Brdgewater at the Lime of the hearing. flMMB Ota tam 'shjuicmi Let Norga Prtterv the Food The new and amazing CM Synchronizer keeps foods juicy-fresh twice as long.

Mr. Staab mentioned a number of undertakings in which other clubs in his area have succeeded and outlined several novel ideas for financing such programs. The local club, which has a present membership of 31, would find . accomplishment of such tasks easier if it were larger, ho said, indicating at the tame time that work toward the achievement of a definite and worthwhile program would create an incentive for desirable men to accept membership invitations. The lieutenant-governor urged the club to send a representation "which would at least fill its quota of 14 to the 23rd annual Klwanis International convention which will be held in Boston for four days starting June 18. He outlined some of the -highlights of the convention program, suggesting that those who cannot remain for the entire fcur-day period at least try" to attend some of the convention sessions. During the meeting reports on the Kiwanis club's participation in the local demonstration at the state teachers college hearing in Botton a week ago today were given by Dr. J. A. Pierce, chairman of the club's committee on public affairs, Dr. M. M. Brown, L. Louis SanSoucic, who served as chairman of the Chamber of Commerce committee that organized the delegation, and Frank W. Godsey.
