JOPLIN GLOBE, FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 1929. MOORE EXONERATED IN DEATH OF RISE No Charges Will Be Filed Against Him In Connection With Stabbing 1 nt richer. Club Life, as Such, Has Small Lure to Men of German Capital Picher, Okla., Aug. 15.— No charges will be filed against Carl Moore in corinection with the stabbing July 20 of Bruce Hise, County Attorney Perry announced this morning, Hise was stabbed during a brawl at the home of Pete Williams and Moore in Mineral Heights addition to Plcher. A week later he died from typhoid fever and complications, which may or may not have been caused by the stabbing, physicians said. Affidavits taken from eight witnesses to the stabbing show that Moore used a knife only in self- defense. Witnesses said Hise, accompanied by a woman and another man, went 'fc Moore's home while Moore and Williams were away, became intoxicated and threatened several of the party with a knife when Moore and Williams returned with their families. His knife was taken from him, and he was put outside to "sober up," witnesses said, but he returned to the home with anr/hev knife and had an argument with Moore. Moore received several small slashes on the abdomen, and Hise was stabbed in the left shoulder. James Funeral Today.

Berlin.—OP)—Club life such as the American and especially the Englishman indulges in, is comparatively unknown in Germany. In comparison with New York, Chicago or London. Berlin possesses but few clubs. Yet there are several famous houses. The oldest of these Is the "Kas- lnogesellschaft" on the Pariser Platz, opposite the French embassy. Before the war it was the meeting place of bluebloods onlv—unless you had a "von" preceding your name, there was no chance of getting in. Toward the end of the war, however, bourgeois privy coun­ cillors from the nearby governmental departments on Wilhelm- stresse were admitted, and now the club is a regular haunt of nationalists, especially of men in government positions. It teems, however, only during meal hours. Few members spend their evening there. Other clubs in which nationalists and monarchists predomii ate are the "Nptionale Club." at the head of which is General Oscar von Hutier, and the "Gardekavallerie Club." made up of former m'embers of the imperial cavalry guards. The most important of this eroup of conservative clubs is the "Union Club" over which, until recently Count Adolf von Arnim-Muskau. close friend of the ex-kaiser, presided. Count Arnim, often called the "first gentleman of Prussia." is one of the richest Prussian junkers, and was president of both the Union Club and the Automobile Club of Germany. He got himself "in dutch." however, with a nm- ber of conservatives who have given up monarchlsm as hopeless, by trying to commit the automoblls club ton an address of homage to the former emperor on the occasion of Wilhelm's seventieth birthday last January. Count Arnim resigned and his successor has not been found. The "Club von Berlin" is an aggregation chiefly of bankers and industrialists—the millionaire's club of the German capital. Its president is Dr. Carl Gelpcke. scion of an old Berlin patrician house. Two political parties maintain clubs: the members of the People's Party meet in the "Relchsclub," of which Gustav Stresemann, foreign minister, is president; the democrats in the democratic club of which Count Hcinrich von Bernstorff, former ambassador to Washington, is honorary^ president. There is also the "Deutsche Gesell- schaft." with Eugene Schiffer, formed vice chancellor, as head. It is a club which parliamentarians of different parties, high officials and professors frequent. All these clubs, however', are practically dark after nightfall. Only during lunch time does one see the membership flocking there. Moreover, they are clubs of older men. The younger set is missing. The modern trend toward sports is illustrated by the fact that the younger Befliners of means, insofar as they join clubs, belong either to the fashionable "Golg und Land Club" on Wann Lake, outside Berlin, or to one of three large tennis clubs or to the Berlin Skating Club. HIGHWAY 71 WORK MAY START TODAY Detour Between Neosho and McElhany Will Bo Placed in Effect First. OPERATING ROOM TUNED IN ON RADIO Patients May Listen While Surgeon Wields Knife in a Portland, Ore., Hospital. For 8CBBEN GRID and ALL OTHER A-C Sets Honolulu, Aug. 15.— W) —One of the latest miracles in surgery—giving fully conscious patients a pleasant diversion by radio during a painless major surgical operation —was described to the Pan-Pacific surgical congress here. Spinal anesthesia, a comparative newcomer in the field of anesthetics, is responsible for the radio development in a Portland, Ore., hospital. A head set is slipped over the patient's ears, while use of a hypodermic needle on the spine renders the trunk of the body insensible from a point somewhere below the shoulders downward. The method is described by Dr. George Norman Pease of Portland in a paper on "Fifteen Years' Experience with Spinal Anesthesia." Three times he emphasizes the value of the new radio trick. Headset for Patient. "We now have installed a radio with headset for the patient," he says. "We find this much preferable to having a talking anesthetist. The radio not only tends to keep the patient's mind off the operation, and gives him something pleasant to listen to, but in addition, closes the patient's ears to outside sound. "The radio, to my mind, is a factor of great importance, especially with women patients. They are apt to get in an extremely nervous state if allowed to lie there and imagine what is happening to them." Near the close of his talk, he reverts to radio, saying: "Let me emphasize again that spinal anesthesia is more difficult in women patients than in men. It is here, that the importance of having a radio is quite evident." Describing the hospital's experi- STOMACH TROUBLE?

Cold Spring Harbor, N. Y„ Aug. 15.— OP) —A flea is just another worry in a dog's life, but to geneticists of the Carnegie institution of Washington it is a valuable creature that may reveal secrets of heredity. Strictly speaking, the animals— for such they are—never bothered a canine because they are water fleas, found in ponds and puddles the world over, and derive their name from their jerky, swimming movements. Resemble Mother. To Dr. Arthur M. Banta, who has reared 867 laboratory generations from a single mother flea, their importance lies in the fact that descendants resemble the mother as closely as "identical twins" are alike in man. Occasionally, however, there are sudden departures from the common mold in offspring, known to breeders as a "sport" and to biologists as a "mutant." The variations, upon further breeding, have proved to be permanent and give to Dr. Banta the effect of the very process which may be responsible for the genesis of the countless forms in which life on earth re'veals itself. One kind of mutant had an "excavated" head, which was inherited by offspring even when the abnormal creatures were crossed with ordinary individuals. Another kind, born during hot weather, was found to need very warm water in which to survive, water of such high temperature that normal fleas died. The influence of environment has been shown in experiments where females were crowded in bottles. Where offspring qf solitary females were daughters the young produced under crowded conditions were males. While the experiments have suggested that sex of offspring can be changed by altering external conditions, Dr. Banta feels that scientists still are a long way from the point where this can be accomplished in the higher animals and in man. "It seems desirable," he said, "to offer a word of warning lest the very moderate accomplishment in the direction of control of sex in the water fleas might he interpreted as providing a solution of sex control in general. No such claim is made; the control of sex in the higher animals and in man would seem to be far distant, indeed." ence with spinal anesthesia, he says: "In 15 years, we have had over 200 cases with two fatalities, and both were due to errors in technic which can be avoided. We have been able to do operations on the stomach and gall bladder without the slightest discomfort to the patient. In spinal anesthesia there is absolutely no pain." Dr. Pease predicts that spinal anesthesia will be used regularly "before many years," but only for certain kinds of operations. He warns against indiscriminate use of the method and says that its mortality has not yet been proven "to be as low as that of local anesthesia, gas, or oxygen- and ether." Work of improving a 10.8-mile stretch on highway No. 71, betwoen Neosho and Anderson, will begin cither today or tomorrow, M. A. St. Clair of the local highway office announced last night. Usinsr McElhany as a base, workers will first Improve the roadway north to the point where the highway connects with the concrete slab just outside of Neosho. Improvement work then will be completed between McElhany and Anderson. A detour between Neosho and McElhany probably will be put into effect the first of the week, St. Clair said. A maintenance crew of the highway department has been working for some, time putting the road into condition for the improvement work. Contractors will do the work of hauling and placing chat, while e7nployes of the highway department will mix asphaltic oil and spread it. Oil to Be Mixed. A seal coat of light asphaltic oil will be placed over the asphaltic retread which extends more than a mile southward from a point just cutside Neosho where the concrete slab ends. From the end of the retread to a point four mires south workers will spread four inches of chat mixed in place with an asphaltic oil. Another stretch, 5.3 miles long, will receive a light asphaltic oil treatment on a graded surface, and the remaining 4.4-mile stretch into Anderson will receive a two-inch top coating of chat mixed with a finer grade of oil than was employed on the same stretch last year. The work will begin just as soon as the necessary amount of chat is hauled .to McElhany, St. Clair said. Paving work on No. 71 north of Carthage from Buck branch south to Flint, a distance of more than two miles, was completed late yesterday by the Independent Construction Company contractors. Beginning Monday, paving work probably will be started between the new viaduct at the north edge of Carthage and the second viaduct at North Heights. The slab then will be laid from that point north to Flint. All detours on No. 71, between Carthage and Kansas City, still remain in effect, but some paving work on the highway is expected to be completed within a month. As soon as the new paving has been allowed to set long enough, the paved part will be open to traffic and the length of the detours lessened accordingly. MRS. ETTA THQMAS DIES IN LOS ANGELES, CALIF.
