The lower court ruled in favor of the Gilbrailh woman, but We Supreme Court sent the case back to the lower court for a retrial. The Supreme Court said HID lower court -should have allowed a state law to be read to the jury.

"Failure to use this degree of care is negligence," the law says. The Gilbraith testifed that when she first saw Loamma Holcomb the girl was walking on the right shoulder of the road.

(TIMES- photo by Chuck Cunningham) NEW YORK (AP) -- "I have no intention of aging gracefully," Jacqueline Susann wrote in 19S2. "I will go out kicking, screaming, fighting the battle of eternal youth." At the time, Miss Susann, in the midst of a career as a stage and television actress, already knew she had cancer. But she went on to make fortune her lusty novels, "Valley of the Dolls," "The Love Machine" and "Once is Not Enough." "Valley of the Dolls" sold 17 million copies and won her a place in the Guiness Book of Records. Saturday night, at 53, Jac. queline Susann died at Doctors ·Hospital, where she had been a patient for seven weeks. Until recently, only her bus- band of 30 years, television- movie producer field, and two , Irving Mans- close women friends knew of her illness, or that the "pneumonia' 1 and other ailments she had suffered in recent years were a recurrence ,ot cancer. . . Even her son, Guy, and her mother, Mrs. Rose Susann o! · Philadelphia, were unaware o! \ the seriousness of her illness. Miss Susann's long-time pub '. licist, Esther Margolin, said on Sunday that the authoress had partial mastectomy (breast surgery) on Christmas Day, 1962, and the disease was in remission for many years. Miss Susann saw "Vallty of .he Dolls" and "The Love Machine" made into movies that also became "best-sellers," with the film version oE "Once s Not Enough" scheduled for release next spring. She came to New York from her native Philadelphia an aspiring actress. She appeared in 21 p l a y s , including "Banjo Eyes," "Jackpot" and the road companies of "the Animal Kingdom" and "Watch on the Rhine" before turning to television as a dramatic actress, game show panelist and mistress of ceremonies on interview programs. But "Valley of the Dolls," "Love Machine" and "Once Is Not Enough" -made her the first novelist in history to have three consecutive No. 1 bestsellers. ..Mansfield said his wife last spoke to him three days ago, when she came out of a coma, saw him beside her and said, "Irving let's get the hell out of here!"
