Doctors Advise Tooth - Pulling To Hush Ohio Death Chatterer MOUNT GILEAD, O., Aug. 20 Hope for recovery of Donald Campbell, 30, talking sickness victim, was .held out today by two specialists after they had examined him. Names of the specialists were withheld by Dr. C. S. Jackson, local physician who had been attending Campbell since he was found ill 13 days ago, but the doctor said both of them believed a cure pos - sible. - - The doctor Indicated that examination showed an Infection of the , teeth might be partly responsible for the encephalitis, or inflammation of the lower brain, which has set up the nerve im pulses that cause Campbell to talk' continuously except .when under influence of sedatives. The infected teeth probably will be extracted. Campbell, a slight, worried little truck driver, has been talking almost continuously for 15 days. He is at the home of his father, Blaine Campbell, in the village of Edison. He recalls stories of his boyhood, worries about his job with a Columbus transportation company, and at times talks rationally with his parents and his wife. He was rational today and told his mother he knew he must be suffering from a mental disease. "But I can't seem to stop talking," he said. "I'm afraid IH just keep it up until I die."
