Epileptics Can Receive Drugs by Mail CHICAGO (AP) — The nation's epileptics "have won a signal victory" in the Illinois General Assembly's passage of a bill allowing epileptics to have medical prescriptions filled by mail, the National Epilepsy League says.

KOEIILER BERLIN (AP)-"Look into his °yes and you will see how scheming and dishonest he is. Woe to Germany if this man gains power." Germany's famous woman Communist, the late Klara Zetkin, was talking about Walter Ulbricht when she made the statement in the 1920s. Ulbricht had just completed his first hatchet job for Stalin Germany's Communist party had become too big and independent. Ulbricht chopped it into cells which Moscow could control easily and so earned the name "Comrade Cell." Since those turbulent days, Ulbricht has done many hatchet jobs and survived numerous purges and upheavals. He was in exile in the Soviet Union during the Nazi era. Stalin sent him back to Germany in 1945 in the uniform of a Soviet army colonel. Since then, the spade-bearded former cabinetmaker has risen to become the boss of the East German Communist party and the dictator of East Germany. Sunday, Ulbricht celebrates his 70th birthday and Khrushchev will be in East Berlin for the event. At least the Communists say that is the purpose of Khrushchev's visit. It is no secret in the West that Khrushchev is more than unhappy with Ulbricht, who rules 17 million Germans with the terror tactics of Stalin. Soviet diplomats, in unguardec moments, condemn Ulbricht foi failure to turn East Germany into a valuable satellite. Since 1953, when the East Germans revolted unsuccessfully anc surged through the country crying "death to the spade beard, 1 the Ulbricht regime has registerec nothing but failures Heavy industry was built rapidly but production never reached governmen goals.
