TROUBLE GETS OUT OF THE DOG HOUSE er-Chewing Puppy Saves Three V, By BERT RESNIK .Dusty, a ing mongrel puppy whose has Trouble, got out of the dog house this morning. He saved three lives. he started growl- at a.m. today, David Rhea, 29, of 1722 E. 55th St., awak- ened'to what she thought was just another meas- ure of puppy trouble. Drowsily reaching down to the pup, who was in the bedroom, she said: "Lie down and be quiet." Dusty did just the op- posite. He barked as loud as any 3-month-old pup- py could.- Frightened that there was someone in the house, Mrs. Rhea sat up in bed. It was then that she smelled the smoke and saw it.. The house was filled with it. She roused her daugh- ters, Cathy, 8, andPam, 5, and called the fire de- partment. After firemen put out the fire, which had start- ed from a pair of pants being hung near the floor furnace, they told Mrs. Rhea just Ijfcw lucky she was the dog had awak- ened her. "They said we all could have been Mrs. Rhea said. Dusty was a second- choice acquisition. The family had been looking for a purebred puppy. "But all the purebreds cost anywhere from 550 to Mrs. Rhea said. "We couldn't afford any- thing liko that so we de- cided to look in the dog pound." It was at the City Ani- mal Shelter that Dusty first met the Rhea fam- ily. It was love at first sight on both sides. Dusfy, about a week before Christmas, he a found himself a ho'.ne and a name. The girls named him Dusty because he was blond and white and al- ways looked that way. It was Mrs. Rhea who gave him the middle name of Trouble. There were the girls' house slip- pers, for example. Shredded. When Dusty- got through with them, they weren't good for anything but the trash can. And the coffee table. Paw marks all the time.. Scratches. And the housebreaking thing. Dusty just couldn't seem to gel the message time. But he got the right message, a life-saving one, just in the nick of time this morning. When the man of the family, David Rhea, 30, heard about had been at made one stop before he came home. He bought the finest piece of steak he could find. After double-check- ing that his family was all right, Rhea picked up the pup'and said: "From now on, this puppy will never want for anything." He scratched Dusty behind the ears and added: "From now on, Dusty can do no wrong in this household." Everyone agreed. No Trouble any more.

Mrs. Connors is a polio By DOROTHY ROE Aijodaled Ptta Wotnen'i Editor was helping deck cargo struck. "I was in NEW YORK .U first seems disaster can be a blessing In says the new March of Dimes, mother of the year. This is the philosophy of gay, pretty Virginia Connors, of Cranford, N. J., 35-year-old mother of three, who runs her own household and holds down a teaching job for the West- field, N. J., public schools, all from a wheelchair. Mrs. Connors received the 1959 national March of Dimes mother of the year award at a luncheon today in recognition of her courage and her independ- ence in regaining maximum self-sufficiency after a bout with crippling polio and long months in an iron lung. Says she: "When you have always been as active as I had, a sudden complete paralysis such as had seems at first to be almos the end of the world. But such a disaster also can show you the wonderful love and devo tion of your family and friend: That's what happened to me and that's what pulle'd m through." SHE IS THE WIFE of John B. Connors, sales representa- ive for a Kearny, N. J., paint ompany. She has two sons, ohn, 10, and Billy, 8, and a laughter, Wary, 4. The little girl was just a baby when Sirs. Connors was stricken with polio and complete paralysis in September 1955, just as she was preparing to return to her eaching job. She was hospit- alizcd for almost a year, in an ron lung much of the time, and her family carried on. "I never dreamed that John could manage the things he did during that says Mrs, Connors. "Of course the whole family rallied and many friends came to the rescue. But the big bur- den was on him, and for that year he held down his own job, did mine at home, took care of the children and helped me to fight my way back to lifri and activity. I could never have done it without his help and Connors, a typical, good- looking junior executive, blushes and grins at this and mutters: 'Oh, well, I had lots of help."
