News in Brief: Sister Kenny Arrives. Sister Kenny, famed Australian crusader against infantile paralysis, arrives on what may be her last trip here. Suffering from an incurable disease, she is interested only in discussing her work. Woman wearing a big hat with flowers disembarks plane, is hugged by Rosalind Russell (apparently Russell portrayed Sister Kenny in a movie). Adult male polio victim is removed from plane and poses with Kenny. Rosalind Russell and a little girl who looks like her (daughter?) walk with Sister Kenny.
