Acquittal of Colorado's Mercy Slayer Recalled;Trial Was Held 25 Years Ago DENVER, Jan. 3. (AP)—A Colorado doctor was exonerated nfter a jury deadlocked in a highly-publicized mercy killing nearly a quarter century ago. Another death, labelled a "mercy killing" in New Hamphslro, recalled the case today. Catted the "Dr. Blazer case", it was one of the most celebrated in American court annuals. Dr. Harold E. Blazer was brought to trial in Littleton, Colo., for the alleged mercy slaying of his daughter. Hazel Ingrit Blazer, 32. From the age of two when she had been stricken with infantile paralysis, Hazel had been completely helpless, she neither talked nor walked. She required more care than an infant. Dr. Blazer and Hazel lived with another daughter of tlie 61-year old retired country practitioner. On the evening of Feb. 24, 1925, their other daughter—Mrs. Prances Bishop— and her husband returned home to find Hazel dead in her crib-like bed. The elderly doctor lay on another bed, unconscious. There were evidences of chloroform and a mercy poison. Dr. Blazer survived and was tried for murder. The case stimulated debate as to the moral and legal as- ; iect,s of euthanasia—"mercy inj;"—across Die nation. The attorney for the defense startled the courl with a oascd upon the contention Hazel liad none of the human attributes usually associated with n "soul." No soul, he reasoned, hence no murder. The prosecution was quoted as !iiij; sympathetic with Ihe doctor, but duty-bound to prosecute him. I The death penalty, however, was never souuht. The Jury reported Itself dead- , locked and was dismissed. The pro.;ccntor, learning tnat the jury had stood 11 to 1 lor acquittal, said he would drop all charges. Later, the case was stricken from the court records. Closing the case, thc Judge said: "There are many riddles in this life that are never solved. The court is through with the Blazer case forever." t iim K m t ,,jn B ii.e desired rcsuk— llu , v \,^\ eradication from till' against thc dlsense. country of this former health.

(AP) — Crown Prince Gustaf Adoll will assume the title of regent of Sweden for one day next week in order to deliver the throne speech to the 1EEDOM PAYS OFF...FOR YOU! You hear a lot of talk about the advantages of making our government socialistic. Don't be fooled. Freedom—and that's the American Way- pays off, and here's proof: Americans are only % of the wor/d'js population. Yet this handful of people produces almost % of the world's goods—mostly {or its own enjoyment. What other system beats that? AMERICANS HAVE MORE- MORE TELEVISION MORE FREE-SPEAKING NEWSPAPERS MORE COMFORTABLE HOMES MORE A:-U ELITES FOOU MORE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS MORE ELECTRICITY AMERICANS HAVE MORE OF EVERYTHING THAN ANYBODY ELSE! Remember that, when you hear tales of the marvels of a socialistic government . . . when people urge that our government get that way by taking over the electric industry, steel, railroads, medicine, and so on and on. Look at the record. AMERICANS HAVE MORE OF EVERYTHING THAN ANYBODY ELSE. Freedom did it, and never forget that. It makes a lot of difference to you—and to your family. • "JIEKT CORLISS AltcilKK" for .Mrghlful comedy. CBS-Sundaji-D 1'. M, Central Time. Ark-Mo Power Co.
