Yours, WILL ROGERS, Police Halt Ritual of Fasting and Frenzy in Mountains (Aennctated Press Leafed Wire) TNEZ, Ky.. Fob. 9.— Praying for •*• deliverance, In a guttural, unearthly chant, eight members of a mountain family are In jail today, seven of, them charged with murder following the cult "sacrifice" of an aged woman.

Hardln brought a verdict that Mrs. Mills died "at the hands of her son John and others." Human Sacrifice Questioned at the jail, members of the family told police that hours ; of praying, shouting, singing and dancing — a part of the bizarre ceremony- called forth "divine commands" that the life of one person present bo offered In "human sacrifice." Mrs. Mills was chosen, they said, and John grasped his mother by the neck as the others looked on. •Blalne McGlnnls told authorities he wanted to prevent, the "sacrifice" but that "a feeling" Impelled htm to stand back. Strangled He said that his mother-in-law was strangled, a chain fastened about hw throat and preparations made for a "burnt offering." A cross, or an altar, was to have been erected, he continued, and her body placed upon It and burned. It was at this point that the police, summoned by frightened neighbors, arrived. NEW MATIN! FOR ALCOHOLISM Delirium Tremens Sufferers Become Normal in Few Hours I Associate* Preni Leaned Wire) ITHACA, X, Y., Feb. 9.—A new treatment for alcoholic cases, under which a patient with delirium tremens became "normal" over night. Is described by three Ithaca scientists In a report just published In proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Doctor Wilder D. Bancroft, Cornell University chemistry professor, whose researches In the field of Insanity, epilepsy and narcotic addiction recently won him the William H. Nichols medal of the American Chemical Society, has reached the conclusion that physical craving for alcohol can be stopped by sodium rhodonate. Twelve cases of alcoholic Intoxication have bean successfully dealt with, the report eayi. • The Investigators came to the conclusion that "all chronic alcoholics, on whom eodium rhoda- nate can be used safely, can be cured If there is only a physical need for alcohol." The report was signed jointly by Doctor Bancroft, John B. Rutzler, Jr., research fellow In chemistry, and Doctor Robert S. Outsell, Ithaca physician. The Bancroft researches are based on tho theory that coagulation or dispersion of the proteins of the brain and sensory nerves occurs In physical and menta) disorders. Application of sodium rhodonate and in some cases, sodium bromide, Is to reverse the coagulation or dispersion. TO REVOLT BOOY Britain to Retain Existing Standard (AKKodated Pret» Leased Wire.)
