Apparently surprising Democrats and Republicans alike he voted for Morlock, the Democratic candidate. Towaid midnight the Democrats still had Eroe's vote and consequently enough strength to solidify their share of the prizes. Democratic Floor Leader Shapiro introduced tho resolution for adoption of rules changing three in force during the last session. One change provided a two-thirds vote rather tlian a majority must be had to alter the election of a president pro tempore and employes. The other revision required a two-thirds vote of all elected senators instead of a majority present to change the rules. By Hie close of the session the three Hcpublican senators-elect not seated with the others still were not recognized by Kennedy despite repeated attempts by Owlett to have their votes counted.

Picturi Alfalfa For Hunrians -A New Treatment Supposed to Be Best Source of New Vitamin K, Says Doctor, Who Tells of Its Effectiveness By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. hat the pro-thrombm in her blood was only five per cent of what it ought to be. Pro-thrombm is an clc- ncnt in the blood which is necessary 'or clotting. Very Sick Woman The patient was very sick and eons down hill. No treatment did hor ·my good. Finally a new consultant was called in who said that be had A BUSY doctor friend of mine drove his automobile up beside mine in the parking- place at the hospital the other day. Looming oat of tho back was a stack of green grass and clover. "What in tho world is that load you arc hauling?" I asked. "Alfalfa," he answered. "A dose or two for a patient of mine. Didn't you know that alfalfa is tho very newest treatment?" I did know it because alfalfa is supposed to be the best source of the new vitamin--vitamin K. And I had also heard a story of ita efficiency, a story related by tho chief of a (Treat American hospital. But I had no idea its use was becoming so widespread. Its uao somehow reminds mo of tho famous retort Boswcll made to Dr. Johnson--ono of tiro times that Boswcll scored on his antagonist. "Oats," said Dr. Johnson, "is a food for horses in England and for men in Scotland." "And where," ob- icrvod Boswell, "will you find such horses and such men?" Wo are usine alfalfa for cattlo and invalids in America. And where will yon find such healthy cattlo and such wcD-cared invalids! Relate* Story The story which I heard goes as follows: A woman was broug-ht into this famous American hospital with jaundice. The jaundice had come on suddenly and deepened rapidly in three or four days. Up to tho time of tic onset sho was perfectly well. She became, an the saying goes, "as yellow as a pumpkin". / Then she began to bleed from her nose, from the mucous membrane of her month, from tho bowel, and clots of blood formed spontancomily under her skin. It is well known that bile in the blood--which is what jaimdiiu* is-is liable to prevent tho clotting 01 blood. Surgeons an very loath to do a Burfrical operation on a paticnl with jaundice for that reason. It was evident that this woman had somo impediment to tho clotting of her blood, which accounts for the spontaneous hemorrhages from tho nose, under the skin, etc. It rfas found by laboratory testa leard of a disease of cattle, due to lating- spoiled clover, and that it was lured by feeding alfalfa. Dr. Clcndening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. The -woman's husband was chetn- st at a brewery, and on this hint ic obtained a fresh supply of alfalfa and proceeded to concentrate it in a vat. In a day or two he appeared at tho hospital with a Erecn jelly- ike mass, which was concentrated alfalfa. This was fed to the patient, with immediate favorable results. She stopped bleeding with (ho second dose, and to the surprise and delight of everyone she recovered and walked out of the hospital hale and hcnrty. So don't be surprised if you s« your doctor riding around with wh*t looks to be a truck garden in his car. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS J.

Answer: Scnrlct fever docs stay on furmturr, draperies, etc., a lonjt time, but it 13 generally said to bo gone in six weeks. K. K.: "I have a tendency toward low blood pressure.

Congress Studies Plan to Hcflt Territorial Hopes By GpATTAN McGROARTY United press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.--Congress began today a study o£ recommendations lor extension ot United States naval defenses designed to halt any territorial aspirations of Japan in the Pacific and to forestall possible European encroachment upon the Western Hemisphere. A five-man naval boaid, headed by Rear Admiral Arthur J. Hepburn, member of the Navy's general board, leportcd to Congress that funds needed for establishment of new fleet facilities in the Caribbean, Alaskan and Far Western Pacific areas. The board declared that American security and territorial integrity might eventually depend upon greater iiir, surface und under-sea strength in Alaska,. Hawaii and farther west toward Japan In the Pacific ato\l of Guam. The board urged immediate favorable action on recommendations to improve naval defenses in the Caribbean and Atlantic coast sections, regarded as the first btep in President Roosevelt's program for a "continental defense system." Officials indicated that the United States has definite information Japan "will deeply resent" nny program to increase defenses in the western Pacific and likely will "retaliate" with effort), to strengthen her own pobi- tion, particulnily near Alaska. United States-Japanese relations already liavc been strained by a scries of sharply worded notes protesting Japanese activities in China. Officials said it would be "extremely difficult" for the United States to defend Alaska under present conditions against a nearby major power, ,ueh as Japan. The proposed program, it was said, is also required for protection of a large section of tile Pacific Northwest. The Hepburn board recommended that Guam be heavily fortified as an advance fleet base to provide "practical immunity to the Philippines against hostile attack in force." Now virtually defenseless, Guam could be so fortified as to make any attack on the Philippines a "precarious undertaking," the board reported. "To an even greater extent," it said, "Guam would greatly impede, if not actually deny, extensive hostile naval operations to the southward, thus greatly simplifying our naval problems should the fleet ever be called upon for operations in the Far East. "The foregoing considerations ore of sufficient strength to warrant the recommendation that Guam should be developed as a major air and submarine base, with a garrison sufficient in strength to make its reduction or occupation a major effort on the part of any probable enemy." Hurt in Motor Accident. Frank Stasko, 22, of Broad Fold, suffered lacerations to the right knee and fractured ribs on the right side in an automobile accident Sunday afternoon near Broad Foid. He was admitted to the Hospital for treatment. Stasko lost control of the machine which ran into an embankment. State Trooper Tana.
