FEBRUARY 28, 1954—SIXTY PAGES IN FIVE SECTIONS  PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY 10c  Egypt Revolt Halted  As Naguib Restored  Nosser Still Holds Power os Premier  CAIRO, Egypt, Feb. 27 (AP)—The threat of a revolt in army ranks forced Egypt’s young military rulers tonight to restore popular Gen. Mohamed Naguib to the presidency.  An army spokesman said Lt. Col. Gamal Abdel Nasser, who engineered Naguib’s ouster on Thursday, would be Prime Minister. Before Thursday Naguib held both posts.  An'Official announcement broadcast to Egypt’s millions said he decision was taken to “preserve the unity of the nation.”  But even before the radio spread the word, thousands of cheering Egyptians gathered before Naguib’s house in a Cairo suburb. There the smiling general, under house arrest since Thursday, slipped a brown bathrobe over his pajamas and waved to his people from the terrace.

The accident happened at the corner of North Second and Cypress Sts. at about 4 p.m. (Staff Photo by Don Hutcheson)  In the streets of Cairo, where a few hours liefore armed police and soldiers stood guard to prevent possible rioting, scores of impromptu parades started, with the enthusiastic crowds shouting such .slogan.s as “God save Naguib" and “No revolution without Naguib.”  Tears of joy ran down Naguib’s cheeks as, he told a reiwrter “we I must all sacrifice our.selves for the sake of Egypt. This dissension is a tempest in a teapot” Naguib, .5.3, wore his major general’s uniform as he waited to be called Iyc-fore a meeting of the ll-rnember Revolutionary Council.  The communique broadcast to 20 million Egyptians said* “The Revolutionary Council announced that to preserve the unity of the nation the council decided to restore Gen.

Not by  hand.s  Mike is 6 - year - old Michael Douglas Copeland, son of Mrs. Morris Copeland. 1626 South 22d St. Timmy is his mischievous 2-ycar-old brother.    ,  Mike, a bright-eyed lirst grader, was born without a complete left arm, the victim of one of nature’.s rare fluke.s. The arm developed normally to the elbow and then started a gradual taper, leaving him without a left hand.  Replace What Nature Forgot  Through help starting at his former home at Colorado City and spanning a major portion of the state, Mike will get an artificial limb that will replace what nature forgot to do.  Mike is scheduled to get the artificial limb next week from the Texas Society for Crippled Children at Dallas.  “Oh, boy! Timmy, just think. I’m going to have two hands just like you!!!  That was Mike’s reaction when told he had been approved for the limb by the crippled children’s society.  Walt a minute. Stop right now If you're thinking of feeling sorry  a long  shot. Baseball, football and basketball are right down his alley. What other kids do with two hands. Mike does just as well with one by using it twice as well.  That artificial limb is to save clothing and halt a withering away ' of the muscles in his left shoulder.' j Tirnmy .stands to benefit, too. In-I stead of cutting the left arms out j of Mike's shu ts and sweaters. hi.s I mother can pass them on to Timmy when they become too small-for Mike.  The extra weight of the arm and the muscular co-ordination required for its use will probably take care of the shoulder muscles that don’t want to grow*.  Plans Were Halted Mike's father, who died June 22, 1952, in the veteran’s hospital at McKinney, would be happy to see his son with the new' limb. He also wanted the boy to have an artlfi-eial limb, but one thing after another always seemed to prevent it, Mrs. Copeland said.
