to award Bowdoin a salary in-

FORREST TUCKER i.
SUSAN CABOT a ns $
By R. GLENN BOYLES
National Institutes of Health
Today we shall have something
to say about Horoscopy a most
unfamiliar and unusual subject for
this writer. Now. if editor Ramsey
misspells as many words as noted
in some of our recent columns
you'll 'probably not know what
we're talking about. (In other
words, in the same boat with me')
This is a long hop from our sub-
ject last week (Wells). Neverthe-
less, here we go Star gazing.
First, we ll take
up Webster's def-
inition numb".-' 2:
"Asrtct of the
stars at a speci-
Stfic time, as at
one's birth'. We
are thinking of
those whose birth
7 ; May 21 to June
21 .under Gemini,
BOYLES the third zodiacal
constellation, pictorially represenl-
ted as the twins, Castor and Pol-
lux, sitting together. The fact that
my wife occupies this'zodiacal po-
sition is interesting. It means that
we must try to stick to facts only
and be wary of fantasy! .': A dif-
ficul position for this amateur
Zodiac, in astronomy is defined
as follows: "An imaginary belt in
the heavens, 16 broad, including the
paths of the moon and all the prin-
cipal planets and, as its middle
line, the ecliptic, or sun's path. The
zodiac has 12 divisions,' or signs"
In the effort to stick to facts let's
try not to get stuck on that word
. imaginary! Listen, you Gemini-
ans, I've made it a point to inves-
gate your horoscope today (June
10). "Simply tops" for your varied
'talents and unusual ability, and
adaptibility. One admonition, how-
ever: Don't let yourself become
ruffled over petty irritations."
Guess there'd be nothing wrong
with using this sort of a horoscope
'every day even in fantasy.
You'll note the sign of Gemini is
twins. Have you ever had the feel-
ing that some folks you've known
were twins, while you were trying
to work as fast and as hard .
and always came in about two
lengths behind? Now, in order to
give due consideration to this ub-
ject we're wondering where eto gaze
from here? 'What sort of commer-
cial will fit this subject, etc., etc.?
Must say that I'm very grateful for
Gemini, and have abundant sym-
pathy for those who made earthly
entry under the third zodiacal con-
stellation. It would be interesting
and informing to make a brief
study and sketch of the 11 other
imaginary houses of heaven: but
space does not permit us to do so
at this time. Capricornus is a most
interesting one in our family (Dec.
22 to Jan. 20). Well, we may have
to agoll the way back to "wells"
before finding a finish to this
space adventure. With 'all the ex-
plorations into outer space these
days we find it much more comfort-
able and far more interesting with
our feet on the ground and close
to Mother Earth.
We'll nudge in a short commer
cial with some real facts to go
along .with the imaginary ones:
"Sunshiners, June at Boyles D'a-
partment Store is a busy, happy,
bright, gay, relaxing, romantic
month the month of brides
graduates, vacations and roses.

ity merchandise and cash avlues
for all. Shop Boyles daily and gaily

"Nine out of ten criminals who
have appeared before me came
from broken or unhappy homes."
That was the statement of Cir-
cuit Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick, speak-
ing before the members of the Me-
thodist Men's Club in Graceville
last Sunday morning.
He made the statement to give
emphasis for the need of legisla-
tion that he is working on to pro-
vide marriage counselling by the
The jurist went on to say that
he believed that our divorce rate
could probably be cut in half by
intelligent marriage counselling.
His proposed legislation would re-
quire consultation with some coun-
sellors before a suit could be filed
for a divorce. Resulting will be
homes saved that would otherwise
be broken to breed more criminals
for th estate to contend with.
His legislation would provide for
counsellors paid for by the state.
In a letter to the NEWS, this
week the judge outlined the plan
"In brief, I propose legislation
that would make It mandatory
for persons desiring to secure
marriage licenses, to counsel with
ministers of their choice or with
a marriage counsellor paid by the
state. It would also be mandatory
before any person could file for
divorce that they would use the
marriage counselling service in
an effort to preserve the mar-
riage. It is my thought that a cou-
ple who receive adequate mare
riage counselling service before
marriage are better able to cope
with marital difficulties when
they arise. They also know that
their marriage counsellor will
help them at any time to solve
any marital difficulty."-

There being, no further business

Two New Plans
To Help You Meet
One out of every eight Americans will go to the hospital this year. The
high costs of hospitalization and surgical fees can be ruinous to the average
family budget. To help you meet these costs, Metropolitan has introduced two
new policies for both individuals and families.
One, for people 55 and under, is the "Paid Up at 65" Plan. This impor- .
tant new plan not only provides coverage during your working period, but also
introduces modified coverage after age 65, and continuing for life, without
further payment of premiums.
For older folks there is also a new Metropolitan Policy which can be
purchased up to age 75 and continued throughout life. This new plan will help
ease the burden of medical expenses for people of all ages who prefer a lower
Both of these new plans are guaranteed renewable. However, the
Metropolitan Life Insurance Company may adjust the premiums on such policies
as a class.
Premiums are charged on a per-person basis; YOU PAY ONLY FOR
THE NUMBER OF FAMILY MEMBERS ACTUALLY COVERED.
Premiums can be paid at convenient intervals by the month, quar-
terly, semiannually, or annually whichever is preferred.
The policy is participating and very important it is guaranteed

to give Bowdoin the raise, indi-
cated to Talley at that meeting
that they realized what would
happen. Whitfield, who was im-
pressed with the outstanding job
Bowdoin had done at St. Joe, ap-
parently voted in favor of the
raise because he was afraid of
losing Bowdoin to another school
-and he knew that good prin-

request for more pay, Bowdoin
told the Board he had another
job prospect, so had to know

this city spoke to the Rotary Club
at their regular meeting Thursday.
'Core has just returned from Ger-

readiness the army observes to
evacuate all U. S. personnel in case
of an attack by the Russians. Ma-

miles from the Russian lines.
He reported that the army had
worked out such an evacuation rou-
tine that all U. S. civilians includ-
ing families of service men, in the
area, could be evacuated to a safe
position in two hours.
"Imagine moving the city of Port
