HELSINKI, Finland-,') Fin
land is not to be sneezed at when
it comes to sneezing. A man nam
ed Pelkonen, of Tampere, Fin
land, has been sneezing for half
of his 40 years not without In
terruption, to be sure. For two
or three davs, maybe a week, he
is normal, then it starts, and he
sneezes 1.500-2.000 times a day.
The sneezing is accompanied by
a bad headache and some fever.
Dr. Eric Nyberg, of a Helsinki
hospital, explained the Pelkonen
a metal-worker, appears to enjoy
generally good health, but the
sneezing recurs without fall and
Pelkonen returns to hospital.
There he is put to bed and glv-

Accused oi me muraer oi iwu
persons near Tacoma, Wash., 33-year-old
John E. Summers Tues-1
day blurted out a story of ac
cidenlal shooting. i
The ex-convlct, arrested b y
FBI agents last night, was given
a formal appearance before U.S.
commissioner Francis St. J. Fox.
Summers is charged with the
rifle slaving of Howard Easlev,
62. and his wife. Elizabeth, 67.
Handcuffed and g u a r d e o
two deputy U.S. Marshals, Sum
mers appeared before commis
sioner hox, who asked him if he
had any statement.
Summers didn't have to reply.
But he recounted eagerly a story
he had earlier told newsmen. He
had visited the Easleys on their
ranch, near where he lived, he
said. Mrs. Easley berated him
tor not picking up a suit at a
cleaning place. Her husband join-.
ed in the argument, which grew
heated. Easley reached for a ri
fle, the accused man said, and
Summers and the rancher Strug-
fled. The weapon discharged, j
Irs. Easley was killed, and her i
husband resumed the fight for
possession of the gun. Again a
buliet was fired, Summers de
jlared. This one killed Easley.
Commissioner Fox said quietly
that bail would not be permitted.
Joseph F. Karesh, representing the
government, reminded the com
missioner that $25,000 bail had
been fixed on the murder war
rant in Washington.
Summers appeared pleased.
"Twenty-five thousand." he re
peated, "why I can furnish that."
He added that "a woman u p
there, who liked me very much,
will furnish it."
But he was sent back to jail,
to await a hearing Friday o n
removal to Washington. Three
officers of the sheriff's detail in
Tacoma left today for San Fran
cisco to return the prisoner. 1
Harry M. Kimball. FBI agent ,
in charge here, said Summers
surrendered without resistance
last night at a rooming house ,
where he had been living and do-1
ing odd jobs.

Not long ago a fancy hand
writing was as much of a so
cial acomplishment as order
ng from a French menu. Then
typewriters appeared and
fancy penmanship with its
curlicue birds and flowers fad
ed. About the only place where
penmanship was valued was in
skywriting. Daring aviators,
with their planes trailing
smoke, looped and rolled across
the sky as they wrote the
names of cure-alls, soft drinks
and tooth powder. But now a
new machine controls the
smoke from the ground and
the letters come out in square
blocks. It's called skytyplng.
Looks like the only thing we
can ever count on is change.
