TWENTY , MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY7 • 1937 LIQUOR OPPOSED FOR SNAKEBITES Reptile Kingdom Widely Misunderstood, Says. Dr. Gloyd. CHICAGO, (UP)—Humanity's loathing of snakes has given rise to an universal misunderstanding of the reptile kingdom, according to Dr. H. K. Gloyd, director of Chicago Academy of Sciences. First, Dr. Gloyd says, there are few poisonous snakes in this country. Second, the most deadly species are the prey of other varieties and few survive. And third, effective serums now may be obtained to halt the venom's advance before great harm is done. Dr. Gloyd. who has studied North American poisonous snakes for more'than a decade, says the most deadly variety is the huge American bushmaster found in Central America. Both its size and potent venom are factors in its threat to man. Three Species Feared. In the United States the snakes most to be feared are the'familiar "rattlers" and the moccasin species, chiefly the cottonmouth, the only poisonous water snake in this country. Out of his broad reptile study, Dr. Gloyd has developed refutations of popular theories on snakes, their habits and treatment of their bites. He denies the age of a rattler is recorded in the number of "rattles" appended to its tail, for he says the snake may add from two to five segments yearly. The rattler, Dr. Gloyd says, may control the charge of venom it injects into the victim, through action of well developed mouth mus*les operating the glandular sacs attached to the hollow fangs. Debunks Home Remedies. Home remedies for snakebite do more harm than good, in the estimation of Dr. Gloyd. Whisky and other alcoholic spirits are harmful as are potassium "salts—heretofore believed beneficial. The best treatment, he says, is use of incision and mechanical suction. "This method has been perfected by Dr. Dudley Jackson of Robert B. Green hospital, San Antonio. Tex., and small first aid kits are on the market which permit a layman to use it in the field. "The method consists of .Applying a slight tourniquet between the bite and the heart. The wound is then cleaned with some antiseptic, such as iodine. It is deepened with a knife provided for the purpose and a suction cup then applied to Leader Robinson Welcomes New Senators Senate majority leader, Joseph T. Robinson, welcomes new senators.

NEW YORK, (UP)—Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia university, recently commended the study of Latin in a letter to Margaret Louise Gurisic, 14, a student in Princeton high schopl.

Basis for Languages. '•To my thinking, knowledge of Latin is a vital part of any school and college preparation for the world of tomorrow which is to be in any wise adequate. Latin is not only- the basis of all of the so- called romance languages of the modern world, but it is the key by which alone can be unlocked the stupendous amount of knowledge and culture which the Romans possessed and transmitted to the world for over one thousand years. "Our modern philosophy and our modern law cannot be fully understood without some knowledge of the fundamental principles of that law which Rome gave to the world. In literature, the Latin language enshrines some of the greatest masterpieces of the human mind, including the writings of historians, such as Caesar and Livy and Tacitus, of orators such as' Cicero and of poets such as Virgil. Provides Understanding-. "Moreover, in our institutional life, in our political and social organization, we are all at this moment under the influence of Roman example and Roman accomplishment. Anyone who studies zoology in any of its subdivisions is immediately directed to embryology, which is the study of the beginnings out of which later and adult life have come. "In like manner, to study Latin is to study the beginnings, of the life which we now live and which the young people of today will have to live a few years from now, There is no way to understand what is going on in the world today that compared with a knowledge of how it came to be going on, what were its causes, its origins, and its earlier history. "By the study of Latin, intelligently and thoroughly pursued, all of this knowledge may be put at the disposal of the student of today and tomorrow." Advocates Grant for • Iowa Public Schools DES MOINES, (/P)—Russell Jones, director of research for the state education department, Wed- nfesday advocated an outright state grant of 57,200,000 and an equalization fund of $4,800,000 for Iowa public schools. Speaking before a Polk county school.administration club, Jones said "a homestead exemption law would hurt the schools since they receive 98 per cent of their revenue from property taxes."
