WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1954 SLYTFTEriLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK SEVEN New Programs Organized Against Accidental Poisoning By FRANK CAREY AP Science Reporter CHICAGO (AP) — A new medical effort is being organized against a potential danger in your own home — the accidental poisoning of children by swallowing common household materials like furniture polish and bleaching agents. Spearheaded by a group of Chicago doctors who have set up a ••poisoning control center," similar projects are operating or being developed in Boston, Cincinnati, New York, Phoenix and Washington, D.C., the American Academy of Pediatrics was told today. The idea Is to have a systematic, centrally controlled network within a city whereby quickest action can be taken in treating a. poisoned child and follow-up steps can be taken to try to prevent possible recurrences or independently few instances of the same emergency. Dr, Edward Press of the University of Illinois and several associates described the Chicago program in a scientific exhibit at the AP's 23rd annual meeting. Dr. Robert B. Mellins of the U.S. Public Health Service, who is participating in the Chicago program, supplied further details. They said the commonest substances swallowed among 315 chil-- dren treated for poisoning in the last year in Chicago were aspirin; petroleum products such as kerosene; rodent killers and insecticides; bleaching agents; and turpentine. With the Chicago Board of Health acting as a clearing house for information and follow-up action, some 20 hospitals in the Chicago area have been supplied with an 80-page manual outlining poisonous constituents of various household materials and the most recent approved methods of treatment. Individual doctors who might be house-called on a poison case can call a "Poison Control Committee" member at the Board of Health or one of the participating hospitals If he needs help. "We're prepared." Dr. Mellins told a reporter, 'to contact the manufacturer of a given household product in case its chemical constituents—and hence possible antidotes—may not be immediately known. "We would like," he added, "to stimulate clearer labeling on various products and, in the case of the more dangerous substances, precautionary warnings which would help remind parents of the potential danger of carelessly placing such products within reach of children." French Continue Probe of Red Spy Scandal; Question Newsman 'Skill Ball 7 Too Chancy, Not Skill, Judge Decides LOS ANGELES I#J— Santa Monica's "skill ball" games, a judge has found, are much too chancy to be a matter of skill. Superior Judge Frank G. Swain, who tried 'em on the spot, ruled yesterday that the games violated the California law. The average player, said the judge, was not prepared to compete, "any more than I could compete against Joe Louis." The judge ruled in favor of Nathan Schur, who sought an injunction against six operators. "The city of Santa Monica cannot license a game that is prohibited by state law," the court declared. The bingo-type games were said to gross a million dollars a month. PARIS tf> — French police planned today to continue their questioning of Andre Baranes, a fellow-traveling newsman who admitted passing French defense secrets to the Communists. Baranes has implied that high figures yet unnamed were involved in the growing spy scandal. The central figure so far in the case which already has involved three top civil servants, Baranes described himself last night a: only a "small fry." Indicating that others were in volved, he told Examining Magistrate Maj. Jean de .Resseguier: "These are powerful people. Find them yourself.." The reporter for the left-wing newspaper Liberation told De Res- seguier the information he passed along to Jacque.i Duclos, France's No. 2 Communist, W «l7 r.-.nae the Red leader laugh. "He laughed in my face and told HONORED—Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor was presented Nationalist China's highest military award for distinguished service in resisting communism in Korea. He li the U. S. 8th Army commander. me, 'We already have that 1 ." Baranes said. "We are not the true authors of the leaks." he asserted. As he left the hearing, Baranes called jauntily to photographers: "Take my picture tonight. I have a feeling soon you will have more important pictures to take." The examining magistrate — whose function is similar to that of a U. S. grand jury — already has questioned some of France's top political figures, including former Premier Paul Reynaud. A summons fcas been served on Duclos and former Premier Joseph Lantel. Eisenhower's Pastor Cited LOS ANGELES tf) — President Eisenhower's pastor was awarded an honorary degree of doctor of humane letters by the University of Southern California yesterday "in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of religion." The Rev. Edward L. R. Elson. minister of the National Presbyterian Church, Washington, D. C., delivered an address at a TJSC Founders Day convocation. He was graduated in 1931 from the university's School of Religion.

KENTUCKY Continued from Page 5 that time was so far back in the woods it was impossible to travel over the seldom-traveled paths during the rainy season, but, Mrs. Denton added, 'We loved every minute of the two years we spent there. Living away from the swim of things wasn't bad at all." There was only one church at Moore and McFerrln nnd everybody went to it. never a week went by that there wasn't a pie supper or an "ice cream sociable" and for those who never attended them, missed out on a lot of fun,. Mrs. Denton said the proceeds from the affairs paid the preacher and he made more money than a lot of preachers in bigger churches. The woods were full of squirrels, 'coons and possums, she added, and in season "we women in the church would get together and cook for days for our benefit suppers." Back to Luxor* In 1918, when younger men were called in,to service during World War I, Mr. Denton gave up his farming career and moved back to Luxora where he accepted the delivering of the mall to the passenger trains and to operate n taxi cab. He retired from the taxi cab business last year due to ill health. In the 36 years Mr. Denton met the passenger trains with the mail he met over 50,000 trains. In the 35 years he drove a taxi he only had one accident in which his best friend broke his hip, this occurred in his early days of driving a cab, maybe he said, that was "to teach me in the beginning to watch out for the other fellow's driving." Mr. Denton related several hu? morous incidents that occurred to him when he operated a cab, two in particular amused me. One dark and dreary night a drunk crawled into Mr. Denton's cab and directed him to take him to his home two miles out in the country. When they reached there the drunk handed Mr. Denton a dollar and as he, Mr. Denton, got back in the car the drunk asked for his change coming back and with that, the drunk got back Into the cab and said he'd go back to town and get another cab that only charged 50c to bring him iiome, drunk or sober. Mr. Denton kept the dollar for the two mile trip, but obliged the drunk by taking him back to town. Another incident happened when VIr. Denton drove a "wet-back" to the farm where he had come to jlck cotton. When he let him out, VIr. Denton tried in vain to make lim understand he wanted his money for the trip, finally the vlexican interpreted the gestures Mr. Denton was making to him so he turned his pockets wrong: side out to let Mr. Denton know ie didn't have any money in which o pay his fare so Mr. Denton irought him back to town and let ilm out at the exact spot he had picked him up. A Prescription Even with all of that, Mr. Den- ton said, "I did not utter one word o( profanity," in fact, he added, "I never drank & drop of liquor in my life and have, never used the Lord's name in vain and that would be R pretty good prescription for a young man to take in order that he might want to celebrate his golctei. wedding anniversary." Mrs. Denton served as secretary so long for the .Women's Missionary Union of the Baptist Church and carried her little book around with her so much, she might well have been mistaken for a book agent. ,The Denton's had no children of their own, but adopted Pantine King, who is now Mrs. J. E. Cow- set, when she \vi\s only nine years old and now Mrs. Cowset is a grandmother, Mrs. Cowset married In 1918 when Mr. and Mrs. Denton moved back to Luxora from Moore and McFerrin. Brother In Luxor* Other than Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Denton has another sister, Mrs. W. T. Thweatt (Lehman) of Chattanooga. The brother was drowned as u youth in the old chute across from bsceola. Mr. Denton's brother, Will, lives in Luxora and a sister, Maggie, was burned to death in her early childhood. Mrs. Bonds is the former Miss Bnrtie Denton. Fifty years together hasn't been long "nt all. Mrs. Denton said, "We've both lived a well-spent life, have had our share of happiness as well as our shnre of unhappiness, but the sweet wouldn't be near so sweet, it might even become monotonous, if a tittle of the other wasn't mixea in to make take 60 seconds now ... to make sure of winter comfort!
