mother. Reappearing shortly after
Granny's death, Mr. Brink is
chased up an apple tree by
Gramps, who is unwilling to leave
GRAMPS THEN builds a fence
around the tree, determined to
keep Mr. Brink from taking him
away from his grandson.
Aunt Demetria and the neigh-
bors agree that Gramps is in-
sane and take steps to secure
the adoption of the youngster.
But before legal action can be
consummated, Pul falls from a
tree in a fatal accident.
When it becomes apparent to
Gramps that Pud cannot survive
the fall, he calls Mr. Brink down
from the apple tree so that he
and his grandson might die to-

WASHINGTON. - VP) - Judith
Coplon conceded today that she
inquired repeatedly about visiting
Russia in the Spring of 1948, a
year before the FBI seized her for
allegedly stealing government se-
crets intending to aid Moscow.
Under questioning, Miss Coplon
said she did inquire about the pos-
sibility of visiting Russia "in an
objective sense to see what it was
like and not because I was in love
with the country."
Then, catching the implication
of Kelley's questions, she said
quickly that a curiosity to see
what Russia is like was different
than going to live there.
MISS COPLON said she dis-
cussed the idea with William E.
Foley, her chief when she worked
in the Justice Department, but
Foley advised her against it.
In her third successive day
under cross-examination, Miss
Coplon again showed the strain
of her ordeal by repeatedly cry-
ing out that the Government is
not giving her a fair chance to
She protested bitterly that Kelly
kept asking her questions which
she could not answer by a mere
"Yes" or "No." In reply to most
questions, she made long answers.
"I FEEL that I'm kept in a
strait-jacket," she said angrily at
Kelley questioned Miss Cop-
Ion at length about her acknowl-
edged desire to see what went
on" behind the Soviet Iron Cur-
tain," as she put it.
But with even more painstaking
attention, the Federal attorney
dwelt on the story of one hour-
a minute-by-minute account of
what happened in uptown Man-
hattan on the night of last Feb.
18-and its possible connection
with an "old Soviet spy trick."
According to Kelley, one dodge
used by Russian spies was this: If
they failed to make connections
the first time, "to go away and
come back in an hour."
Kelley did not elaborate, but the
purpose would obviously be to di-
vert suspicion or throw any coun-
ter-spies off the track.
Miss Coplon, who has testified
she read "thousands" of FBI re-
ports in her job as a former Jus-
tice Department analyst, said she
never heard of such a thing.

Shoo, fly, ya bother me!
The common housefly bothers
most of us, but it bothers others
to the tune of typhoid, dysentery,
tuberculosis and cholera, which
these little insects have been
known to carry.
This hairy beast can do any-
thing from looking in all direc-
tions at once to walking on ceil-
ings as well as in butter, on milk,
bread, and other delectable ed-
AND WHAT'S MORE, he'll go
where no self-respecting animal
will venture - in garbage cans,
manure piles and other unclean
places. They multiply like shmoos
in places like this.
Tiny hairs on the legs of the
fly pick up bacteria, and when
the fly enters the house, it con-
taminates everything it touches.
Another common enemy of
long-suffering humans is the blow-
fly or flesh-fly, which is metallic
blue or green and much larger
than the housefly, and packs a
bigger punch when he bites.
THE BEST WAY to keep flies
in check is to keep them from
breeding. But every one should be
executed on sight, too.
Some of the ways to control
On farms, new manure can
be spread thinly over fields so
that any eggs or young maggots
presept may be killed by the
dryness, heat or cold.
Garbage cans should have close-
fitting covers and should be emp-
tied and washed often.
Screens protect open windows
quite effectively, and screen doors
that open out are best.
No amount of care is enough to
vanquish this devil in disguise be-
cause he is such a prolific pro-
ducer. But these hints can greatly
control him, and protect persons,
animals and other extraneous liv-
ing matter from this great sum-

International Center might be
called the University of Michi-

At least that's the way it's char-

Whether it's in Afghanistan
or New Zealand, we hear about
it through the students that
come to us for help."
In helping students, Dr. Gale
finds his "omnivorous appetite"
for languages a valuable asset. A
good speaking ' vocabulary in
French, German and Chinese;
plus "dabblings'" in Japanese,
Korean, Russian and Italian, and
a solid Philips Scholarship back-
ground of Latin and Greek, are
the nine tongues Dr. Gale admits
to his language list.

give a speech in Turkish at a
Turkish student banquet, but he

According to Dr. Gale his in-
terest in Oriental languages can
probably be traced to an uncle
who served as a missionary edu-
cator in Korea.
It was he who first got Dr. Gale

the Far East.

IN 1908, DR. GALE received his
master's degree from the Univer-

a doctorate from the University
of Leyden, in Holland.
