    Bandit Walks Casually From Bank After Holdup
NKW BRITAIN, Conn., July 25
lF) A bandit casually walked
out of the Fidelity Industrial
bank with between $10,000 to
$12,000 in cash Friday after a dar
ing armed holdup.
The bandit, about 30, followed
Thomas J. Higgins, 36, the bank's
credit manager, into the building
when the latter opened the front
door. :
Forcing Higgins into the vault
at the point of a gun, the bandit
ordered the credit manager to
dump the money into a white can
vas bag provided by the intruder.
As the bandit left the building,
he met Miss Geraldine Curtin, 16,
a bank employee,- at the front
door.
She assumed he was a bank cus
tomer and greeted him with a
"good morning."
The bandit replied with a "good
morning" of his own and casually
walked out.

House Group
Votes To Retain
52-20 Vets' Aid
WASHINGTON, July 25-UPt-r-The
Senate labor committee Fri
day voted unanimously to keep
for another year the "52-20" pro
gram of unemployment benefits
to veterans.
The present program expires
next Monday, President Truman
has asked that it be continued.
Under the program, unemploy
ed veterans receive government
payments of up to $20 a week
for 52 weeks. About 600,000 vet
erans now are getting them.
The committee's action sends
on to the Senate .a bill which
would keep tile program inforee.
both Senate and House must
approve It for the program to
continue.
Backers of a similar measure
in the House are pessimistic
about extension of the law. The
bill is before the House veterans
committee. The chairman, Rep.
Rankin (D Miss), has said It is
going to stay there. He has called
the "52-20" benefits "sit down
money and rocking chair
money."

Dreams of foreboding events and how realistically true they
became provide some of the hair-raising stories John Nesbltt has
planned for his "Pcsing Parade" starting today through Friday,
July 29, (4:304:45 p. m.). For his broadcast today, Mr. Nesbltt will
relate the Interesting dreams of Robert Louis Stevenson and poet
Samuel Coleridge, and of a British submariner whose dreams saved
the lives of his shipmates; Tuesday, Mr. Nesbitt tells about people
who predicted things accurately from their dream world; Wednes
day's story is about how several superstitions were established, and
the next two days are about persons who made long-range predic
tions, 'i
At 7 tonight, the "Dick Haymes Show," followed by the
"Sammy Kay Showroom" playing such favorites as:
"Riders In the Sky," "Sentimental Journey,'.' "Cruisin' Down
the River," and "On the Alamo." A story involving a sup
posedly haunted house, and a crippled woman who loves It,
la the detective-drama for KHJ-Don Lee's "Let George Do
It" presentation tonight at 8. At 10:15 p. m., there will be
a special program on "Farm Legislation" under the aus
pices of the Democratio committee; speakers will be Harold
D. Cool of North Carolina and Joseph Flster. At 10:30, the
Republican committee will give their viow point on ."Farm
Legislation" with speaker William S. Hill from Washing
ton and Lee B. Prichard.
If you are planning a heavenly vacation in your space ship, here
is how you get a road map for a trip through the untvtrse just
call at the Palomar Observatory on the mountain of the fame name
in southern California. For a fee about $2,000, they can provide
you with a sky chart reaching back three-million light years. But
wait a minute you may have to stand in line, the sky mapping
has only Just started. And astronomers on the mountain near San
Diego say It may take four years with Palomar's 200-inch telescope.
However, when it's done, you'll have a complete roadmdp of the
northern heavens, with everything from planets to star dust care
fully charted. But it will still be wise to take along a spare tank of
rocket fuel nothing's said about service stations.
