■MEWHALL, Calif. - (IP) — A
typical Hollywood dude ranch
— guest rooms with all modern
conveniences, swimming pool, two
well - stocked bars, 320 acres of
land and four horses — was the
setting on a recent Sunday for
a party given by a Hollywood
The host, wearing a maroon-
colored western outfit—guns, hol-
sters and all—worked hard to keep
his guests amused.
Jerry Lewis greeted each arrival
with a grin, a poke-in-the-rib and
lie patted the kids' heads and
played any request character
alongside a child as dad or mom
proudly snapped their picture.
Later, Lewis took part in a west-
ern show, slinging his gun with
the noncealance of a mock fight
with towering Mickey Finn, Holly-
wood's greatest fall guy, who got
the thrashing of his life.
The audience, big and small,
howled with laughter. It howled
again W'hcn Lewis wrought havoc
with a square dance on the patio
near the swimming pool. Then the
movies’ great Indian, rich old Chief
Youlachie, inducted Lewis into his
tribe, and the flashbulbs popped
Four hours and a half-dozen
other events later Lewis was still
knocking himself out to keep the
audience amused. The guests were
members of the Hollywood press,
radio and television corps who had
received an invitation signed,
“Dean and Jerry.”
Behind The Scenes
“We would love the pleasure of
your company at a Western Hoe-
down at the Circle .1 Ranch in
Newhall. Take your spouse and lit-
tle “Buekarros”. . . .
But Dean Martin had not shown
up to greet the buekarros. The two
had feuded through the preceding
summer and their relationship had
not improved w'ith their working
in two pictures in succession. It
was not until the following Mon-
day that the guests at the dude
ranch and the "world premiere”
that night in Newhall of the latest
Martin-Lewis picture read about
a new split.
Behind the scenes, the day was
marked by a studio approval to let
the stars go their seperate ways.
Handed down from a production
boss’ inner sanctum, it was still a I
strictly confidential matter when
the party got going. Oblivious stu-
dio publicity men gayly distribu-
ted press releases for the next |
morning which read, “Dean Mar |
tin and Jerry Lewis kicked off the ;
national publicity campaign on [
their latest picture by playing
hosts to more than 250 guests. . ."
By a strange coincidence, it was |
the anniversary, almost to a day, '
of the team which had generously i
handed out laughter to the Amer-
ican public for 10 years. It was in
the summer of 1946 that Dino
Crocetti. 29, and Joseph Leviteh,
20, unsuccessful seperately, got to-
gether in an Atlantic City night
club and started the act that made
them rich and famous.
That partnership is now in the
process of dissolution. Ironically,
the party at which it came to an
end was to launch their latest pic-

College To Aid
MANHATTAN, Kan., July 14—(TPt,
—Kansas State college this fall will
offer a special program adapted to
the needs of gifted students.
John C. Weaver, dean of the
school of arts and sciences, said
the program would provide for
both special courses and special
counselling for particularly able
students. It will be available, he
said, to those in the upper five per-
cent of their college class.
“The particular challenge in
higher education today is the train-
ing of our best minds,” he said.
“Such individuals are society's
most valuable commodity. We be-
lieve our new program is a step
toward providing the best educa-
tion possible for our students at
all levels of competence.
Freshmen entering on the honor
program, on the basis of their high
school grades and scores made in
entrance tests, will be assigned to
special advisers in their major
field and a special four-year course
of study will be worked out for
Students already in college may
compete to enter the honors pro-
gram if their records indicate they
are at the top of their class.
The honors course will permit
students to by-pass elementary
courses in which the individual al-
ready has competence.
“While the program does not
propose to shorten the four years
of study necessary to obtain a de-
gree,” Weaver said, "it does allow
the gifted students to reach goals
beyond the ordinary limits of un-

MINNEAPOLIS, July 14 —«Pi—
Death rate from pneumonia has
declined to about one-fourth of
what it was 30 years ago, accord-
ing to the Minnesota State Medical
A bulletin said the science of
treating pneumonia has advanced
considerably. It said the first mod-
ern method of treatment that
helped pneumonia patients survive
was the administration of oxygen
by an oxygen tent. Then in the
1930’s specific serums were found
to combat the germs.
When “sulfa” drugs were intro-
duced, they were found to be more
effective and easier to administer
and soon replaced the older, more
involved treatment. Penicillin and
other antibiotic drugs provided an-
other means of fighting almost any
lung infection regardless of the
