PAST INJURY FAILS
TO HALT CAT STAR_
By ROBERT MILLER
One of the New Hanover High
School baseball players who has
not received much praise for his
splendid ball handling in the past
years and this year is, Paul Hoi
Paul a high school senior and
the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. P.
Horton of 221 S. 5th street, is
better known to his many friends
His baseball career started
when he was only six years old
in Kinston. Paul played with rub
ber balls, rocks, and any other
object that resembled a baseball.
He played ball in Kinston until he
moved to Wilmington when he was
13 years old.
When he entered Winter Park
school in the eighth grade he
started playing his first school
baseball. Paul played at the key
stone position. ..
Baseball became his lavorite
sport, but in the summer after he
finished the eighth grade he had
broken his leg. This kept him
from playing ball of any kind for
a year, but he was not doubtful
of his ability to handle the hide,
so he landed himself a job as
shortstop for the New Hanover
High School Junior Varsity when
he was a sophomore.
Shortstop was a good position,
but' Paul loved to handle the
duties of the keystone sack, so the
next year under the coaching of
Leon Brodgen, he was playing
second base as a first stringer in
the latter part of the season.
Only a portion of the year as
second baseman did hot suit the
short lad, so he returned again
for the New Hanover High school
Wildcats and this year has kept
the Keystone to himself, and is
doing a wonderful job.
Paul’s biggest thrill in baseball
came to him in the Rocky Mount
Wilmington game at Legion sta
dium this year. The sacks were
loaded and little Paul, with the
highest batting average of the
players, then, came to the mcund.
gritted his teeth, and clouted a
Paul with a batting average of
.393 at one time this year held
the highest batting average in the
state, which was .500.
Since Paul is not going to col
lege he said that he will probably
stay along with the Winter Park
Rangers, as long as they let him.
He is also a member of the
Rangers nine now and has proven
' to be one of their most valuable
players on the diamond.
NEW ORLEANS. May 3.—(U.R)—

Metz, prominent plastic surgeon
and member of the Tulane Uni
versity medical school faculty, had

LOS ANGELES. May 3.—(U.R)— j
Fifteen-year-old Esther Yvonne
Brooks felt gingerly for her nose
today. Then she smiled and asked
for a mirror. The nose vas rightr
there—right where it should be.
Esther, her family, her doctor
and two deputy sheriffs breathed
a sigh ol relief.
Tne young Inglewood high school
sophomore parted company with
her nose when it was severed, in

When she arrived at the hospital
her physician took one look and
sent the two deputies racing back
tc find the missing nose.
After a two-hour search in the
roadside weeds the nose was
found, brushed off and rushed back
to the hospital where it was stitch

the doctors sat back to wait—with

“The stitches are out,” he said.
“The nose is still in position and

an encouraging sign.”
Esther said she was sure her
nose was all right because she
could even smell through it.

England And Wales 1
Plan Health Service
By ALVIN J. STEINKOPF
LONDON, May 3.—(/P)—In about a year, if the labor
government’s plans mature without a hitch, a national
health service will start in England and Wales.
Hospitals and their endowments i
will become the property of the
state. Under the plan, England’s
20.000 family doctors and thou
sands of specialists, nurses, den
tists and pharmacists then may
decide whether to become em
ployes of the state.
Health, disease and the recov
ery from illness or accident will
become the direct responsibil
ity of the nation. Every British
subject in England and Wales will
have the right to receive medical
attention and hospital service.
The bills will be paid by the
state, partly by national insurance
funds already existing. Aneurin
Bevar.. minister of health, esti
mates the first year 152,000 pounds
Leg i s 1 a t i o n setting up the
framework of the national health
service has been passed by par
liament. Hundreds of health min
istry officials and county borough
councils are developing the organ
ization, deciding which hospitals
and nursing homes will be drawn
into the national plan, fixing the
boundaries of 15 administrative
districts and—one of the most dif
ficult tasks — persuading physi
cians that they should become
“civil servants,” either wholly or
on a part time oasis.
The ministry of health hopes to
get started with the granj plan
in April, 1948. A similar scheme,
to b£ administered separately, is
being prepared for Scotland.
Thousands of problems, includ
ing some of the basic objections
to socialized medicine the world
over, remain to be met. Many
lively debates are in prospect.
Among the chief objectors has
been the British Medical Associa
tion. the most powerful of the in
dependent associations of physi
cians. A number of compromises
are being made.
One guarantees that there will
be nothing “totalitarian,” about
The indiv i d u a 1 doctor may

the national plans in 'which case
he will get basic salary and a

the right to conduct a private
Doctors may elect to keep out
of the state service altogether.
Governmental hospitals and scien
tific services would be available
to him without discrimination.
The patient may choose his own
doctor—another compromise won
by t he medical association—and,
with certain practical limitations,
his own hospital. The patient may
elect to have the state pay the
whole cost of treatment, or he
may pay for extraordinary refine
ments and comforts.
The government expects that as
time goes on and as new doctors
come into the profession an ever
increasing number of physicians
will join the state service. The
number at the start may depend
in a large measure on how physi
cians are to be compensated.
