Treatments In Hospital Cure Man Of Swearing T _ n n ^ / \ r t / A " D \ A T t ^ ? / ? _ * t _ ' "^ London (AP)--A British doctor told a strange story yesterday of a man who had to go to the hospital to cure himself of cursing ' , . · Writing in the 'authoritative British Medical Journal, Dr. Richard P. Michael, said the-man-swearing now aged 30---began when he was 9. Teachers scolded him, his family tried lo stop him, but nothing helped. His violent*language got uncontrollably worse. · Then he went into the army and immediately rose to be a sergeant. · Oddly, the cursing stopped. But, after finishing his service and returning to civilian life he began to feel a compelling urge to swear. Six months later, at the age of 23, he was spouting all the old bad words. Additionally, he developed a tic and jerks of the head, arms and legs. For - 4 % years he continued to blister the air. Dr. Michael said the man erupted into swearing 'fits 10 to 40 times an hour.. H e - h a d to quit his job as a salesman. ."By this time," said the doctor, "his mother and sister refused to accompany .him out of the house and it became impossible for him to ride on a bus, visit a restaurant or a cinema because of the volume and frequency of his utterances." A recluse, he went to a hospital. "He was given carbon dioxide treatment four times a week," said Dr. Michael. "The frequency of his utterances decreased and he was discharged from the hospital after 3 The facts behind filter-tip cigarettes Do filter-tip cigarettes really giveyou protection against lung cancer?

In Eastern New York, about 50 Mohawks are camped around a bridge on the State Thruway near Fort Hunter in Montgomery County. The Indians came from Northern New York and Canada, where construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway flooded the Caughawaga Reservation near Montreal and part of the.SI Regis Reservation in Franklin County. Chief Standing Arrow says "the Canadian government gave us s few dollars and told us to find new homes." He said the Mohawks had learned from their ancestors that the Montgomery County tract belonged lo the tribe under a federal treaty of the 1700s and never was sold to the White Man. Standing Arrow said the Mohawks had received "no direct answer" from Washington about their claim, but he said they "plan to stay" here for good." "We'll Get Attorney" "If w e run into legal trouble," he said, "we will get an attorney." A Montgomery County archivist, Edward J. Sheehan, disputes the Indians' claim to, the land.

They claim the law disenfranchised the women of the tribe. (Tebo's attorneys are E. Stewart Jones, James T. Viger and Robert J. Armstrong of this city.) Washington (AP)--A bill that Arould largely nullify the June 3 Supreme Court decision giving defendants access to certain FBI records cleared its first legislative hurdle in the House yesterday. ( A judiciary subcommittee approved the measure, introduced oy Rep. Walter {D-Pa} ( who is a judiciary committee member and also chairman of tne House Committee on Un-American Activities. Subcommittee Chairman Willis (D^La) remarked, "so far as I am concerned, this is only the beginning." He said the judiciary committee has "an obligation" to review the whole series of recent decisions by the court, including those of June 17, setting bounds for what congressional committees may do in an investigation, and those under which convictions of some Communist leaders was reversed. Two Senate witnesses seized on one of these decisions yesterday as grounds for refusal to say whether they were Communists when they had access to official government messages. The two, appearing before the Senate internal security subcommittee, were Howard V. Traut man and Salvatore A. Testa, both of New York and both members of the American Communications Assn., a labor union vhich was kicked out by the CIO. ,In the House committee, Rep. Truck (D-VA) said the congressional review of Supreme Court decisions should not be confined to the decisions of what he called "Red Monday" but should go back as far as "Black Monday.' This latter was his term for the 3954 decision day on which the court declared racial segregation in public schools unconstitutional. ' .. In approving the Walter bill, which now goes to the full judiciary · committee, the subcommittee passed over the similar but less drastic measure approved by President Eisenhower's administration and introduced by Rep. Keating (R-NY). The Walter bill provides that government documents contain- i n g confidential information whose disclosure the attorney general considers would be "prejudicial to the public interest, safety or security" may not be produced as evidence unless they have been produced in open court to establish a record or refresh a witness' memory. Even in such a case, they would first be reviewed by the judge who would determine how much must be disclosed. Willis said the Supreme Court decision that Walters' bill is aimed at "caused consternation to the* FBI and also in the field of narcotics enforcement." He said he was informed that Poor Box Thief Given Ninety Days John Kiss Jr., 43, of Bolton Landing, was sentenced to 90 days ia Ontfndaga State Penitentiary yesterday after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of malicious mischief in connection \vith the theft of money from the poor box of Blessed Sacrament Church in Bolton Landing last week. Sentence was pronounced by Justice of the Peace Asa Hastings in the Town of Bolton. Kiss had been questioned in connection with several other acts of mischief in Lake George area churches. iii the first 48 hours after the d»- cision, 14 judges of lower U.S. courts had opened up various government records to defendants 'and you c-n imagine how many must have ,sn opened up since?' The Trautman-Testa appearance before the Senate group produced these results: ~-i 1. They were suspended from their jobs, of automatic telegraph operator and radio operator, respectively, by RCA Communications, Inc. The company said it acted in line with policy "to guard aganist subversion and to maintain protection for its employes and property against possible espionage or sabotage." ; 2. Their stand set up what may be a guideline for others. Instead of relying on the Constitution's Fifth Amendment and the Supreme Court's June 17 decision in the John T. Watkins case. 3. Sen. Hruska (R-Neb) mentioned the possibility of a trial before .the Senate--which has sent people to jail in the past for contempt--rather than in the courts. ' .'; This was the first time witnesses in an open committee meeting have invoked the Watkins decision, one of several recent ones by the court which have set off a storm of debate. · Trautman said that under the Watkins ruling he could not be required to testify about his "beliefs, expressions or associations." He said the question as to whether he was a Communist exceeded the committee's jurisdiction. "';. REFRIGERATION OPEN EVER? * HEATING EVENING JAMES T.
