NEGRO WITH BULLET IN CENTER OF BRAIN EXPECTED TO RECOVER Froemont Klnch, indicted for tnur- U.- t,t his wife, and held for treatment In St. Mary's hospital after an attempt to commit suicide, will cany a bullet In the center of his brain for the rest of his life, Di. E, C. McGowan, county pliy.iiclnn In charge of the case, said Thursday. Although no hope was held for Klm-h's recovery, he has progressed rapidly in the last woek and was able to walk lo lhe x-rav room In St. Mnry's hospilol to secure the ptc- trne whleh located the bullet. "A study of the x-ray plntes shmvs that lhe bullet la imbedded In Ibe vf-ry ' l cr of the brnin," Dr. E, C. McGowan. countv tfiysiclafrt laid Thursday. "If II were jiwtt under the skull we could operate and remove the bull "I but Its position makes ll Impossible to operate. "The only plausible solution of the bullet's stopping in the middle of the main without striking an ob str-uctfcn, Is that the gun was of poor quality and the shell an old one. Tho speed of the bullet waa spent in tbe short distance from Hie mouth to the center v f the brain. "Klnch Is apparently normal, men- tnlly. He Is unabln to talk plainly be cause f the wound in his mouth, but fo fnr tho presence of the but Id In the brain has caused no sign of paralysis. He Is nhle to conununl cata with others bv writing."
