Cnicago, June 6. — Seth Stratton. a man with two stomachs, slowly was starving to death today, because he forgot to see his doctor twice a year. He is unable to swallow enough food to satisfy his double hunger. Twenty-one years ago Stratton went to Dr. Prank Smithies suffering from an acute case of inanition. Operations were attempted' and it was discovered there were two stomachs. The passage between the larger one, in Stratton's chest, and the real one in his abdomen, had been obstructed. ' All hope for his recovery was abandoned until Dr. Smithies conceived the revolutionary idea of passing a silk thread, with an air pressure ampoule on one end. down through the throat into the stomach. Gradually by this means the opening was cleared. Stratton, now a man of 72, loved to play golf and hunt but because he had no money he had to work. Dr. Smithies arranged for him to be pensioned from his job and after that he spent his time traveling — following the horses, the golf ball and the sunshine. The only joker about this new freedom was that every six months it was necessary for him to go back to Dr. Smithies to have his stomachs stretched. The reason he is dying now is that he forgot about the charge of dynamite he is sitting on and didn't report to Dr. Smithies for his last appointment. The physician said he feared for his patient's life because of his advanced age. For the last two decades Stratton, living in constant fear of death, has carried one of the strangest wills ever written. It reads: "I, Seth Stratton, being of sound mind and being affected with an unusual disease of the aesophagus. do hereby bequeath my stomach and aeso'iha- gus to Dr. Frank Smithies in appreciation of his professional services so that the true status of my aesophagus may be observed." RESOLUTION Extened Constitutional Portion of NBA to April, -1936. Washington, June 6.—A resolution extending the constitutional phases of the NRA until April 1, 1936, was drafted today for quick action by the house -ways and means committee. The NRA resolution which awaited action by the ways and means committee repealed the delegation of powers section .of-the original recovery act Insofar asNthe president's powers to prescribe, and enforce codes are concerned. The wording of the resolution was such as would permit industries to continue under the NRA on a voluntary basis. Administration leaders failed la an effort to gain unanimous consent of the house to give the NRA resolution privileged status so that it could be taken up at any time, but expected to obtain a rule from the rules committee making the bill in order tomorrow.

Some of;those who got the crop out early report good sized -pods are already on the Tines and that these are numerous. There is a possibility of damage-by hail and other elements but aside from this even drought could not prevent a good sized.crop this year. Kansag City Saved When Flood Crests of Rivers ! Fail .to. Meet. DAMAGE IS MILLIONS Kansas City, Mo., June 6.—The menacej of floods that has scourged five midwestern states the last week was definitely on the wane today. The crest of. the Kay river flood from Kansas and Nebraska will reach here today and empty Into the Missouri river, but army engineers believed they can be absorbed without serious damage to the central industrial district. i Down the Missouri the worst hazards! now appear to be at the eastern [end of the river, where it Is flowing' miles wide in the fertile valley from Hermann to the Mississippi river. Levees have been broken 'and many acres are under water, j Fear ithat a serious flood would result in the Kansas City district were dissipated when the crest of the new Missouri flood from the north reached here yesterday, 24 hours ahead of the Kaw river flood tide. Engineers said the Missouri was able to carry off the flood from the north speedily enough ;to enable it to handle the Kaw flood, which diminished in volume when dikes broke and water poured through them at an estimated! rate of 20,000 cubic feet a second. T Topeka weathered the flood, which went six feet above bank full, when the dikes held or were successfully patched when breaks occurred. Residents of North Topeka, moved out by police, returned to their homes today. ' At Lawrence the crest passed without-great damage, although a levee break, resulted in' flooding several i thousand acres. ' TJie break endangered 400 CCC recruits sandbagging the levee, but all raced to the safety of high ground as the wall of water poured through a 50-foot gap. The river today is expected to flood much of the low farming country west of Kansas City, Kan., but when it reaches the city proper engineers believe it will stay within the concrete levees. These were reinforced on both sides yesterday and a guard of several hundred men watched constantly through!the night. Their number was augmented at dawn today, and officials of both Kansas cities said every precaution would be taken' until the waters subside. i • • The Kak Valley flood has demonstrated the need of a series ol impounding reservoirs for flood prevention and control, army engineers said. The break in a levee, which permitted millions of gallons of water to pour into Silver Lake, fqrmed. by the old river channel,[where it was safely!impounded,' did much to relieve.the pressure -at Topeka and Lawrence. Artlficlali reservoirs would perform the j same service and greatly reduce flood hazards, they said. Transportation still was hard- hit and trains and busses to the west and southwest still were routed over wide detours. Thousands of jfeet of concrete highway baye been ripped away, and numerous bridges have been swept away or badly damaged. Property damage will run to to many; millions, and hundreds of farmers who lost virtually everything in the drought last year faced another lean year. Loss of life, concentrated in Nebraska and Colorado I where the floods struck Without Darning, is estimated at around ,160. j i * AT.
