Anne has been a patient at the Baltimore institution for more than three years and this week new hope came into her life. A machine, a vital improvement in which has recently been invent- ed in Baltimore, is undergoing a series of with Anne as the patient, which may bring hope for recovery of the use of her limbs. remarkable story of how a Electric chemical engineer confronted with a problem of im- proving an existing apparatus sc that it could be used for this pur- pose, invented what apparently is now a basic patent in thirty min- utes' study, was told by.' officials of the Children's Hospital School where the tests are being con- ducted. Aid Circulation The idea of the new treatment for infantile paralysis victims is to provide "artificial stimulation of circulation of blood to legs or arms "which have been paralyzed, the fresh blood coursing through veins and arteries giving the muscles an improved "tone" and eventually aiding these muscles and nerve fibers in resuming their normal functions. "Whether this will "be accomplish- depends on the result of the present experiments. But the ma- chine, with its; "new improvement has so far actually accomplished the following results: 1. It has restored normal warmth to the ordinarily cold ex- tremities commonly noted in limbs affected by infantile paralysis. On "Ice-Car" Boy 2. It was used with remarkable success in the case of Glenn Bol- dan, fourteen-year-old Minnesota boy whose feet were frost bitten fiom living trapped for 11 days in the refrigerator compartment of a box car. 3. It has proven' itself unusually efficacious in the treatment, of "un- tmited fractures" broken bones which for some reason have not been able to grow together proper- ly. The machine, originally known as the Pavaex Machine, was discover- ed by a Baltimore Mont, associated with the Cincinnati General Hospital. "Work- ing with his associate, Dr. L. G. Herman, the apparatus was devel- oped. It consists of a "boot" or com- partment, airtight, into which the leg of -the patient is introduced. .In the original machine, the union of tha leg and the "boot" was made perfect by means of a strap, tight- ened about the thigh until there no escape of air. Inside the boot a "minus pres- sure" of air, or a partial vacuum was created, and this had the ef- lect of sucking-the-blQQd.-down.-4n-- to the arteries and capillaries, thus feeding fresh nutriment to vessels which had not been getting the proper supply. This pressure was then reversed and a "plus pressure" exerted which had the effect of forcing this blood back into the body through the out of the leg into normal veins which could carry it back to the lungs and heart for purification and to start its journey anew. Strap A Difficulty The insuperable difficulty was that the tight strap which kept the airtight acted as a partial not permitting the veins to perform their full function in taking the blood back into the body. Realizing that this was of par- ticular hindrance to its use in in- fantile paralysis cases, where the restoration of perfect circulation is paramount, "experts at the Chil- dren's Hospital School, among them H. .O. Kendall, the physical ther- apist, had striven unceasingly to find another method to make the machine airtight without exerting this pressure on the limb where it entered the apparatus. Finally a Western Electric offi- cial, learning of the problem, said: "I'll turn it over to my engi- neers and let them work on it."

Following his investigation of the accident on the Gettysburg-Fairfield road Thursday night.in which three people were injured, Sergeant S. Sneaffer of the local sub-station of the highway patrol laid informa- tion this morning against Myriam Worthington, 18, Carlisle street, and Bryon Bant, 37, 27 Baltimore street. -The WorthiHglon girl is charged- with driving a car without an oper- ator's license.

Miss Myrtle Three sheets from the sheaf ol f After the papers had been accept- fifteen pieces of writing paper that presented at the office of Quintin D. Reoert, Adams county register and recorder, in the court house, Thursday, were admitted to probate Friday as the last will and testament of Mrs. Anna M. Fickel, York Springs resident who died February 10. When the papers were first pre- sented at the register's office, near- ly oil of them unsigned, none dated, and bearing writing in ink and pen- cil, that appeared to be of different and written at different' times. Mr. Rebert, on the advice of hia attorney, refused to allow them to be filed in his office as the legal will of the deceased woman. But late Friday afternoon. Wil- liam M. Weidner and E. S. Guise; both of York Springs, who said they were well acquainted with Mrs. Fickel, went to the court house office and took an affidavit that they were "familiar with the handwriting of Mrs. Fickel and had fiequently seen her write her own name." They are reported to have examined the sheaf of papers and selected the three sheets that were finally accepted as the last will and testament of Mrs. Fickel. Identify Signature It was explained at the court house office this morning, that in- formation contained in the accept- able sheets showed that they were recently, definitely within tlie last year, although none bears a date. None of the three sheets is wit- ed. Orpheus Diller, York Springs, who is named as executor on the third sheet, applied for letters tes- tamentary on the estate. The first of the sheets bequeaths to her brother, John Henry Kuntz. now deceased. The reasons for giving him that sum fill the page. Other Bequests Other bequests give a set of dishes and two gold-rimmed glass dishes to Janette Trough, a "girl friend." Silver-plated knives and forks are given to a Mabel Myers. To another "girl friend" she directs that a ladder-back rocker and an- other old chair be given. Another old style chair is bequeathed to Ruel Diller. On the final sheet it is directed that after the "just debts" are paid, all that remains of the estate is to be divided equally between Mary A. Zeiglcr, George M. Myers and John Shellenberger, as "their pay and re- ward." Mr. Diller is named the executor. At- two other places in the other twelve sheets he had been so desig- nated. At one place it had been ordered that he be required to fur- nish a bond. No mention of j a bond is made in the will as it is on file today. Mrs. Fickel's estate is estimated at S1.500 in personal property arid in real estate The latter property consists of a house and lot in York Springs. This morning the will of John Henry Kuntz, the last close relative nessed and only the third bears of Mrs. Fickel. and the brother the signature that has been identi- j mentioned in her will, was to the register's office to be probated. The will lias not yet been entered to probate, but is reported to be in proper form, having a date, signa- ture and the signature of witnesses. as that of Mrs. Fickel. The sheets are filled with long- hand writing in ink. and appear to Ixs connected in thought and give evidence of having been written at the same time. Miss Edna V. Eicholtz. deputy register and recorder, said this morning that she had allowed the 1hree sheets to be entered to pro- bate as Mrs. Fickel's last will on the advice of an attorney. HAS SCARLET FEVER Helen Davis, 5-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Davis, Han- over street, was quarantined at noon, today by Health Officer Eric Denr- dorff with scarlet fever. Cullison, Cashtown, observed her forty-first birthday an- niversary, Friday. HOSriTAI, REPORT Mrs. Robert Kennel, Gettysburg, was admitted to- the Annie M. War- ner hospital Friday, and Mrs. Jesse Snyder, Gettysburg, and Louis Wal- ter, New Oxford, were admitted to- day.

Mrs. Dennis Asper, Aspcrr., also was discharged. t In Fu A six-ancl-a-hnlf-foot snake plant is in full bloom in the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Coulson, 31 Buford avenue. Another plant of the same variety, in bloom in the same room of the Coulson home, measures four feet. A stem, measuring more than four feet in length, extends from a large bulb that supports the growth o! the plant without the addition of either ground or water. The stem is topped with a large open flower, not unlike the shape of a tuliy ex- cept that one side of the bloom ex- tends in a liplike projection. In the center of the "mouth" protrudes an 18-inch tongue that stands erect and tapers to a point nt the end. The flower is of a deep purple color. On the outer siclo (.he bases of the [stalk, petals are mottled with green. The stem is green. After the bloom has dropped from the stalk, Mrs. Coulson .says that she will plant the bulb in a flower bed, where it will bear large, um- brella-like leaves. In the fall the: bulb will be removed to the cellar of the Coulson home, where it will again sprout. Mrs. Coulson stated that she has cared for the snake plant for about three years, but that the prcsenl bloom is the first one that has ap- peared to reward her efforts. The smaller plant is of the same type and color. It sprouts from a smaller bulb than the larger plant. The Victim of Farm Tragedy Burled Funeral services for Simon Wash- inger, 35-year-old York county farmer, who was shot to death in his home near Mt. Pleasant Monday night, were held Friday in Mt. Oli- ?et church near EdemoUe, Franklin county. Burial was in the church cemetery. There were only two automobiles in the funeral cortege as it wended its way from Lisbum to Edenville. In one machine were the 12-year- old triplets, James, Ruth and Mary, and relatives of the slain man were in the other. Mrs. Romaine Washinger, 45, ac- cused of the murder of her husband, is in the Harrisburg hospital in a satisfactory condition. She is suf- fering from a self-inflicted bullet wound in the left side of the chest. 150 Women Ailend Special Services in St. James' Lutheran Chapel.

It is life at its fullest har- mony with God himself. It is a communion and a fellowship." "Supreme Royalty" Dr. Aberly stated "peace can't go out into the social order until it has filled 'individual hearts. I do not have much faith in peace by disarm- ament and "by political agreement, but by a common loyalty to the Prince of Peace, a supreme loyalty, to a Supreme Good."
