Against Ankle Touch Five more women polled sufficient votes to rate the top ten, but were placed in a special category for "professional" reasons, being'fashion designers or closely associated with the fashion industry. The number one winner, Mrs. Pa ley, said: "In 1949 I hope skirts will remain long, but not so long that they touch my ankles when I walk. I like slim skirts, but I hope we never have to return to the wartime restrictions on width. It will please me if natural shoulders remain in fashion, but even if they don't, I shall continue to wear them. In fact, I think all women have learned to wear what they like regardless of the fashion headlines." Floating Idols Disturb Bombay Bombay, India—Four idols were washed ashore the Bombay beach. They were picked up by Hindu pandits, set under a pipal tree and worshipped. Three of them were 18 inches in height and the 4th 9 inches. The first was the elephant-headed god, Oanapati, the awarder of all luck; the 2nd of monkey god, Hanuman, who fought under Rama for the recovery of his wife, Sita, from the demon king in Ceylon, Havana; the 3rd of Nandi, the bull on whom god Shiva rides, and the 4th has not yet been identified. None could say how they came to be washed ashore, but they are giving headaches to 2 officials— the curator who wants them for the museum if no one claims them, and the magistrate-collector who must accord permission if the people want to worship them. «8&^^ HERE and THERE Much Labor for Little Wichita, Kans., OJ.R) — Thieves huffed and puffed to pick up, load and haul away a thousand pounds of scrap iron.

Prof, Guido 'Guida, director of the "Medrad" as merchant navy centers call it, says his organization, founded in 1935, has given free medicnl advice to hundreds of merchant ships asking for help. He has at his disposal, for consultation, a group of 40 doctors and specialists, all of whom give their services free. When a ship asks for help in a case which is beyond the master's medical knowledge, a specialist in the disease or injury involved radios his advice to the ship. In many cases, when the sailor is too seriously ill, Medrad advises the master to transfer him to a passenger ship or put into the nearest port where he can get hospital treatment. Similar services exist in the United States, Belgium, Great Britain, Sweden and Norway. Ar- mostly broadcast by coastal radio- centers. family. Garner — Marcelle Sonquist oi Ft.
