Remove Peanut From Lung Of Bar ton Child A 20-months-old child, Francis O'Haver, son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard O'Haver of Barton, is reported in a good condition at Memorial Hospital after an operation to remove a peanut from his right lung. The child had been eating a piece of candy in which peanuts were one of the ingredients and one of the peanuts accidentally entered his lung. The parents noticed that he was breathing with difficulty and had become pale. Believing at first the child had pneumonia they rushed him to the hospital. Local physicians made an examination and discovered the peanut. It was removed through a rare operation using a trachea tube. Last night the O'Haver boy, who has blond curly hair and dark brown eyes, was resting comfortably. His Cathcr is a coal miner.
