"Are today's show business

I put famed Hollywood designer
Edith Head on the spot with the
query. "I hate to admit it," she
said, "but several movie actresses
know as much about fashion de-

knows even more."
But Edith would name only five
she'd trust alone in front of a mir-
ror as judges of their own clothes.
They were: Grace Kelly, Claudet-
te Colbert, Audrey Hepburn, Jean-
marie and Dietrich.
Mum's the word with Edith
about the majority of famous dolls
who know absolutely nothing
about clothes. "I'm saving their
names," she told me. "for when I

WHERE IT HAPPENE.D
By Heart Specialist
DENVER, Oct. 22 UP>—Dr. Paul
Dudley White said today that Pres-
ident Eisenhower is "convalescing
well," the healing of his heart has
speeded up, and he should be able
to leave the hospital on schedule
in the week of Nov. 5-12.
The Boston heart specialist, the
top consultant on Eisenhower's
ease, told a news conference that
he had "only good news" today.
He pronounced the President "on
the road back to good health," but
said, "We shall have to wait an-
other two or three months to make
sure of the completeness of his
Asked whether he could envision
being able to tell the chief execu-
tive at the end of two or three
months whether he could run for
a second White House term if he
wishes, White replied that all the
doctors can tell him is "how fit
the heart is."
He suggested that the decision
would have to be Eisenhower's but
that the wishes of his family also
might be taken into consideration.
It was learned that the doctors
are figuring tentatively on letting
Eisenhower check out of the hos-
pital about midway of the week
of Nov. 5-12. although a definite
date has not been set.
White and a team of doctors
gave the chief executive a com-
plete medical checkup this morn-
ing at Fitzsimons Army Hospital.
White presided at a news confer-
ence afterward at the Denver
As the doctors see it, it still
probably will be Jan. 1 before the
chief executive could return to his
duties in the White House. When
he leaves Denver he probably will
fly to Washington, spend a day or
two in the White House and then
go on to his farm at Gettysburg,
During the convalescense period
there the President should be able
to step up conferences with Cabi-
net members and other adminis-
is I tration officials, or even hold a
j meeting of the full Cabinet.
And possibly he might turn the
procedure around and go from
Gettysburg to Washington for oc-
Doomed To Failure
By Russia's Stand
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y., Oct.
22 I/Pi — Russia's insistence on old
positions appeared here today to
doom any disarmament agreement
at the Geneva Big Four meeting.
Diplomats described the Soviet
stand in the Disarmament Com-
mission yesterday as showing
clearly the Russians have not
moved a step toward agreement
with the West on inspection, con-
trol and actual disarmament
moves after nearly a year of new
One diplomat said the Soviet
program set forth in proposals
May 10 and repeated at the Big
Four summit meeting last July
insures a long, indefinite postpone-
ment of any step toward disarma-
ment. Under these proposals, tile
powers would have to agree on a
complete program, including atom-
ic weapon prohibition, before even
a first step could be accomplished.
U. S. Secretary of State Dulles
and President Eisenhower's dis-
armament envoy, Harold E. Stas-
sen, might be able to get the
Russians to give at Geneva a more
definite answer than they have
given here so far on the Eisen-
hower "open sky" proposals. These
would set the disarmament ball
rolling by an exchange between
Russia and the United States of
aerial inspection of defense plants
in each other's contries.

At Central Fire station, the en-

Reported For New
Type Heart Repair
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 22 (i™) —
Promising results with a newj)
"purse string" technique for re-
pairing leakage of one of the key
valves of the heart were reported
today by a Philadelphia surgeon.
Dr. Robert Glover, chief of heart
and chest surgery at Presbyterian
Hospital, Philadelphia, said the
technique had possibilities for
benefiting at least half of all pa-
tients whose "mitral valve ,has
been left leaking" by bouts with
The mitral valve, so called be-M
cause it is shaped like a bishop's*"
mitre, or hat, is located between
the left auricle, which receives,
oxygenated blood from the lungs,
and the left ventricle, whence
blood is pumped throughout the
Sometimes, as a result of rheu-
matic fever, the valve is left loose
and flabby so that blood "backs
up," causing overstrain on both
chambers of the left side of the
heart—occasionally resulting in^
hearts "big as soccer balls," Dr.1#
Glover told the 28th annual
scientific meeting of the American
Heart Assn. that previous attempts
to repair such a "leaking valve"
have involved attaching extra tis-
sue to the "lips" of the valve, or
placing plastic materials in the
blood stream in an attempt to re-
duce the valvular opening.
But, he said, none of these has
proved satisfactory. _
In the new technique, he related,p
sutures are threaded, like a purse
string, around the middle of the
entire left side of the heart, caus-
ing a constriction which, in turn,
forces the lips of the mitral valve
together inside the heart cham-
