x.'SttKSZ- £ £, ~ r TWENTY , MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY I LIQUOR OPPOSED FOR SNAKEBITES Reptile Kingdom Widely . Misunderstood, Says "Dr. Gloyd. CHICAGO, (UP)--Humanity's loathing of snakes has given rise to an universal misunderstanding of the reptile kingdom, according to Dr. H. K. Gloyd, director of Chicago Academy of Sciences. First, Dr. Gloyd says, there are few poisonous snakes in this country. Second, the most deadly species are the prey'of other varieties and few survive. And third, effective serums now may be obtained to halt the venom's advance before great harm .is .done. . , Dr. Gloyd, .who has studied North American poisonous snakes lor more than a decade, says the most deadly variety is the huge American bushmaster found in Central America. Both its size and potent venom arc factors in its threat to man. Three Species Feared. In the United States the snakes most to be feared 'are' th'e'familiai "rattlers" and the moccasin species, chiefly the cottonmouth, the only poisonous water snake in this country. . . · ' ' : . · Out of his broad reptile study, Dr. Gloyd lias developed .refutations -of popular theories on snakes, their habits arid'treatment of their bites. He denies the 'age of a rattler is recorded in the-number of "rattles" appended to its tail, for he says'the snake.may add from two to.five segments yearly. The rattler, Dr. Gloyd says, may control the charge of venom it injects into the victim, through action of well developed mouth muscles operating the glandular sacs attached to the hollow fangs. Debunks. Home Remedies. Home remedies for snakebite do more harm than good, in the esti- matio'- of Dr. Gloyd. Whisky and othc · alcoholic spirits are harmful as sre potassium salts--heretofore believed beneficial. The best treatment, 'he says, is use of incision and mechanical suction. "This method has been perfected by Dr. Dudley Jackson of Robert B. Green hospital, San Antonio, Tex., and small first aid kits are on the market which permit a layman to lise it in the- field. "The method consists of applying a slight tourniquet between the bite and the heart. The wound is then cleaned with some antiseptic, such as iodine. It is deepened with a knife provided for the purpose and a suction cup then applied to It" Leader Robinson Welcomes New Senators Senate majority leader, Joseph T. Robinson, welcomes new senators.

Read Our Ad on the "Want Ad Tase for Prices STUDY OFtATIN IS ADVOCATED s Key to Understanding Life, Dr. Butler TellsGirl. NEW YORK, (UP)--Dr. Nichlas Murray Butler, president of olumbia university, recently ommended the study oE Latin in letter to Margaret Louise Gur- sic, 14, a student in Princeton igh school. Miss Gurisic wrote to Dr. Butler asking his ^opinion of ic advantages of Latin, explain- ng that she was "making a Latin reject." "The question put in your letter s very important for the young \merieans of today who look forward to preparing themselves in leir school and college life for in- clligent understanding o£ the ·orid in which they are to live nd for participation in its many- ded activities," Dr. Butler said in is reply. ' Basis for Languages. "To my thinking, knowledge of atin is a vital part ot any school nd college preparation for the vorld ot tomorrow which is to be n any wise adequate. Latin is not nly the basis of all of the so- ailed romance languages of the modern world, but it is the key by 'hich alone can be unlocked the :upendous amount of knowledge nd culture which the Romans ossessed and transmitted to the 'orld for over one thousand years. "Our modern philosophy and ur modern law cannot be fully nderstood without some knovvl- dge of the fundamental principles f that law which Rome gave to lie world. In literature, the Latin anguage enshrines some of the realest masterpieces of the hu- n a n mind, including the writings f historians, such as Caesar and ..ivy and Tacitus, of orators such is Cicero and ot p'oels such as firgil. Provides Understanding"Moreover, in our institutional ife, in our political and social organization, we are all at this moment under the influence of Roman example and Roman ac- iomplishment. Anyone who studies :oology in any o£ its subdivisions s immediately directed to embryology, which is the study of the beginnings out of which Jater and adult life have come. "In like manner, to study Latin s to study the beginnings of the ife which we noxv live and which ,he young people of today wil lave to live a few years from now There 'is no way to understand ivliat is going on in the world -today that compared with a knowledge of how it came to be going on, what were its causes, its origins, and its earlier history. "By Ibe study of Latin, intelligently and thoroughly pursued, al of thra knowledge may be put a he disposal of the student of today and tomorrow."
