Monday, October 21, 1974 THE t FAMILY^ LAWYER . Wrong Victim One winter's day, Art, a teen- acer, was amusing himself by hurling snowballs at passing cars. One snowball missed its target and struck a pedestrian across the street, injuring his eye. Could Art be held liable for assault and battery? In a court hearing, his lawyer said no. "Art had no wrongful purpose toward this man," went the lawyer's argument. "Hitting him was purely accidental." MOPE <ABK.) StAR Page Dr. Lamb However, the court ordered Art to pay damages. The court invoked the doctrine of "transferred intent," by which an original wrongful intent—in this case, the desire to hit the passing car—was transferred to the accidental consequences. This widely recognized doctrine is based on the law's reluctance to let a wrongdoer get off scot-free. It has even been applied in a case of mistaken identity. Thus: A man sneaked up behind another man, thinking he was an old antagonist, and bashed him on the head. Actually, the victim happened to be a total stranger. But that didn't help the first man when he was haled into court afterward to face a damage claim. Applying the doctrine of transferred intent, the court had no trouble finding him liable. On the other hand, the doctrine will not apply if there was no wrongful purpose in the first place. Suppose, for instance, that a woman who is being chased by a mugger throws a rock in his direction. And suppose the rock misses the mugger and hits an innocent bystander. Under these circumstances, the woman could not be held responsible for injury to the bystander, because she had acted in legitimate self defense. With no wrongful intent to begin with, there would be nothing that could be transferred into legal liability.

It lasted for one week white 1 was placed in a hospital. The treatment I received was not specific, but consisted of tranquilizers and sleeping pills. 1 would like to know if there is any rather direct treatment for hiccups, I have stopped drinking any effervescent drinks and colas and DEAR READER - There are many cures for hiccups. Most work best if done just at the time the hiccups were going to stop anyway, in spite of what you do. Then you can say, wisely, that you cured your hiccups. Breathing into a brown paper bag — I have always wondered why it must be brown — standing on your head, holding your breath, or having someone scare you all work — provided you do it just when the hiccups are ready to stop anyway. Timing is very important because if you use these and many other remedies before the hiccups are ready to stop anyway, your treatment will be a failure. Treating many hiccups is much like treating a cold. A cold may last a week if you don't treat it and will only last seven days if you do. Some hiccups are caused by distention of. the stomach and factors that irritate the diaphragm just above the stomach. Hence, overeating, gas on the stomach, and hiatal hernia of part of the stomach through the diaphragm can be factors. You are wise to avoid the soda drinks. Hiccups can also be caused by irritation of an area in the brain. Finally, they seem to be related to a reflex that involves the back of the throat. Other than the passage of time and the use of sedatives or similar methods, I know of two direct methods that are helpful in some eases. The first is done by taking a teaspoon and putting some vinegar on the back side of the spoon. Then open the mouth and rub the spoon at the area near the uvula in the back of the throat. The uvula is the lobe of tissue hanging down from the midline at the back Of the throat. The uvula should be touched. The vinegar of the mechanical action may stop the hiccups at once in some people. Apparently this local action interferes with the hiccup reflex and effects a cure. Still another cure was reported about three years age- by Dr. Edgar Engleman and colleagues, then from the Miami School of Medicine. They found that the old treatment of swallowing a teaspoon of dry, granulated sugar stopped the hiccups in 19 of 20 cases. In some instances the hiccups had been present over 24 hours before treatment was attempted. In those that had a recurrence of the hiccup, repeating the simple treatment stopped them immediately. The sugar treatment is not because of the glucose or anything like that. It may be closely related to the spoon and vinegar treatment and by mechanically stimulating the back of the throat with the granular material, it may interrupt the hiccup reflex mechanism. Neither of these treatments are dangerous, so the next time you "have hiccups, try either one and see if it works. It could be a sweet way to avoid spending a week in the hospital.

(AP)George W. Harper, 40, of Abbeville died Saturday when the World War II vintage P38 airplane he was piloting crashed on a city street and exploded into flames.

Child dies of gunshot LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Sharon Wicks, 5, of Little Rock was killed Sunday when struck in the chest by a gunshot fired by a 5-year-old playmate, police said. Authorities said the child was shot once with a large-caliber revolver while playing with a 5- year-old boy in the front yard of his home. Police said the girl and boy had been playing in the front yard when the boy apparently went inside and got his father's gun. The boy went back outside and fired the gun ^"Apparently they were playing cowboys and he didn't know what he was doing," said Sgt. Robert Marshall, public information officer. The name of the boy wfto allegedly fired the shot was being withheld pending further investigation. __ The largest vessel in the world capable of carrying dry cargo is the Japanese Usa .Maru of 264,523 deadweight tons.
