Y., will be held Thursday. The district attorney said Mrs. Lita D. Hamlyn. 40, attractive ex-house . keeper for the Johnson family, who was Johnson's lone guest aboard his #25,000 yacht when he was mutilated Saturday night, would appear before the grand jury to tell ter story of the bizarre case. Johnson, meanwhile, was described by his physicians as in a critical con dition and extremely weak from loss of blood. So far, he has been able to give only an incoherent account of the * assault. Under renewed questioning today, Mrs. Hamlyn, the mother of a 20 year-old son, was said by Nassau County authorities to have admitted having several drinks aboard the yacht and having fought off Johnson when he allegedly made unwelcome ad vances. “Then everything went black,” she was quoted as saying.

Despite a $90,000 increase in the Community Chest's budget, officials of the organization predicted at a dinner of Governmental Unit chair men at Manor Club last night that the tenth anniversary campaign for $2,059,000 this year would be fully subscribed. Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Wayne Chatfleld Taylor, dinner host and head of the Government unit, ex pressed the opinion his group's collec tions would go "over the top.” Dodge Is Optimistic. Clarence Phelps Dodge, president of the Chest, likewise expressed confi dence in the drive. Herbert L. Willett, jr., director, pointed out that the $90,000 surplus over last year’s Chest budget would be used to cover expenditures in the five suburban areas. An increased burden has been placed on the Chest this year, he explained, by the cur tailment of public relief agencies. One of the many needy cases was cited by Willett as an answer to writers of anonymous letter who com plain they never have heard of any families aided by Chest agencies. He told of the helping of a young mother and her baby, driven from their home in the middle of the night by a drunken husband. Garbed only in nightclothes, the woman appealed to and was aided by the Family Service Agency of the Community Chest. The story of this woman, with her picture, together with the Community Chest help in giving her food, shelter and a future, undoubtedly would have made the public vitally aware of the value of their gifts to the Chest, Wil lett explained. "The real value of the help she re celved would have been offset, how ever, by notoriety. Ap It Is, her new friends know nothing of her past and her chance for a fresh start la un hampered.” The Irish Free State has a plague of sharks off the coast. Motorists Find Free Gas. COLUMBUS, Ohio (JP).—A gasoline truck and its two trailers upset near Reynoldsburg and 8,500 gallons of gas rushed into a creek where a dam im pounded it. Motorists were happy. They backed their cars down to the creek and filled their tanka. Nearby filling station operators had a very lean day.

Shakespeare certainly needed no foreign tutelage In crime and crimi nals, for, ready to hand, he had good English matter in the beggar-books and in the actual life of his day, and his was the genius of all others for transferring this matter to art. Small wonder, then, that his rascals remain vitally distinct and Individual; for where the Spanish novelists and their continental followers are Intent upon society seen through the eyes of the rogue, Shakespeare In Kalstaff has .anatomized the rogue himself.
