b'ne LeichiB H’paper nm ‘Wfoftna.tfflBI 5 * is à The unpleasant notoriety recently given three Sikeston physicians should be a warning to all physicians who are doing a legitimate practice, to let a dope fiend who throws a fit in the floor in order to get a shot, die and go to hades instead of giving one shot that calls for another. We are told there are a number of narcotic users in Sikeston and vicinity who get their shot from somebody, and this is the reason the Government stool pigeons were sent to Sikeston. Already one of these doctors has been apprtmched and told not to worry as he would see that everything would be all right. The United States District Attorney, vfchose dut^ it will be to prosecute these cases, should have any party thrown m jail who even suggest that he dismiss any case until brought to trial, or until satisfied he has no case.

VOLUME 22 SIKESTON, SCOTT COUNTY, MISSOURI FRIDAY MORNING, >1 \Y 11, 1031 NUMBER HI I.ydy of East St. Lonsi, 1’!., form- cily of thi? city, which occurred Wednesday evening, the cause «mid to have been high blood pre sau vI Parking On Two Streets Changed By Ordinance Most generally you will find something interesting in The Standard, if not in the news and editorial sections, then in the advertising columns. We feel honored and proud that The Standard carries the bargain messages to our readers and in shopping we feel certain money can be saved by buying from those who seek your patronage. Three proposed ordinances were passed unanimously, one was rejected, April bills were approved, and minor matters were considered at a regular monthly meeting of members of the City Council held in the City Hall at 7:30 o’clock Monday evening. By the action of the group in passing one ordinance downtown parking on two streets will be changed to a .system which was tried once before without success. The act provides that all automobiles stopping on the north side of Front street between Kings- highway and Scott Street and on the east side of North New Madrid street between Front and Center streets must be parked at an angle of forty-five degrees with the right side of each car nearest the curb. On the south side of Front street and the west side of North New Madrid street within the area designated, automobiles must be parked parallel with the curb. Persons violating this ordinance will be considered guilty of a misdemeanor and may be fined not more than $100. All trucks and buses which have load carrying capacities of more than three- fourths of a ton are forbidden to stop on these two streets, and it is understood that there will be no double parking. A second ordinance passed by the Council prohibits circuses, carnivals, dog and pony shows, skating rinks and show’s and exhibitions of any kind operating under a canvas from locating their show’s within 300 feet of a church ■ r school building Persons found guilty of violating this act will be fined not less than $5 nor more than $100 The third ordinance levied a sales tax of 3 cents a gallon on gasoline and twenty cents a gallon on lubricating oils sold on or delievered to the municipal air- n rt. Companies making such ales must remit this tax to the City Clerk, together with a monthly or quarterly report. A fine ol not more than $100 will be paid by any concern violating this ordinance. An ordinance providing for an increase in the salary of Walter Kendall, Chief of Polie, was automatically rejected when members. by a secret ballot, voted five to two against raising Kendall’s pay Orville Zimmerman, of Kennett Two Are Charged With Announces Candidacy For Congress and other complication?. The body w’!l be brought here t >• 1 urial, *; arrive today on the no >n train Among the April bills approved by the Council members was a telephone bill of $17.35 for long distance calls made in January, March, July and December, 1933, and in January, February and March of this year, and for rent for the police department telephone for January, 1933. After these bills were accepetd, Dr. G. W. Presnell requested the City Clerk, A. C. Barrett, to have the Southeastern Missouri Telephone Company submit their statements every month hereafter. John Thompson, City community garden supervisor, was retained in that position for another month at a wekly salary of $14.40. Speaking in behalf of Thompson were John A. Young ami C. L. Blanton, Jr., who outlined the work which has been done on the city’s ten-! acre tract, telling that all the j ground has been harrowed, an ] acre and a half planted in beans, and 8000 cabbage plants set out. They said that soon seed potatoes and tomato plants will arrive, and that in the fall produce from Scott county’s four community gardens will be canned by women on relief with the aid of operators of a traveling canning kitchen. Mr. Young, in urging the retention of Thompson, stated that hy spent $160 weekly among the merchants 'for relief, and that the city received approximately $134 worth of labor free. Frank Lair, representing the Chamber of Commerce, requested the Council to erect street signs at Sikeston’s 225 intersections. Two would be needed at each one, he said, but it is thought that wherever possible telephone and light poles could be used to reduce the expense of buying posts for the signs. Mr. Lair’s request was referred to members of the street committee, who will obtain estimates for the work. The Council moved to ask the highway department officials to have the branch of Highway 61 which runs through the city marked Optional 61. Members of the group will meet at 7:30 Tuesday evening to swear in as an alderman the man who is that day elected in ward three to fill the place left vacant by Dr. Presnell, when he was chosen may- In this issue of The Standard Hon. Orville Zimmerman of Kennett, Dunklin County, Mo., makes his formal announcement for the Democratic nomination for Congress from this district. Mr. Zimmerman was born and reared to manhood on a farm in Bollinger County, in this district, where he received his early education and training in the public school at Glen Allen and at old Mayfield-Smith Academy, now Will Mayfield College. Later he attended the State Teachers’ College at Cape Girardeau, from which institution he graduated in 1904. After serving as principal of the high school at Dexter for four years, he studied law at the University of Missouri, graduating in the year 1911. In that year he located at Kennett, where he has made his home and practiced his profession since that time. Speaking of his candidacy, the Dunklin Democrat, his home paper, had the following to say of him: “While he has never held an elective, or other public office with any salary attached, Mr. Zimmerman has taken an active part in the Democratic politics of this district all of his life, and especially during the twenty-odd years that he has been practicing law in Dunklin County. “He has served for several terms as a school director in this district, and is at present a member of the Board of Regents of the Southeast Missouri State Teachers’ College; was for a number of years a State director in Lions International and drafted the constitution under which the State organization is now operating. “An ex-service man, Mr. Zimmerman has taken an active part in the affairs of The American Legion, and is one of the trustees of Samuel T. Adams Post of the American Legion. During the war, prior to his closing his office and leavng for training camp, he was chairman of the legal advisory committee of this county. “He is a former president of the Kennett Lions Club of which he is a charter member; a Mason and a Shriner; and for years has been one of the most active in the affairs of the Methodist church. “Thoroughly acquainted with the problems of this district, mature in his judmen^, intellectually ture in his judgment, intellectually quickly gaining the confidence of his followers, Orville Zimmerman should be the choice of an overwhelming majority of the voters of the Tenth District when they select the Democratic nominee for C ngress next August”. Mr. Zimmerman will make an active campaign in this county and hopes to sse personally as many voters as possible. However, owing to the size of the district, he will not be able to see everyone, and he takes this means of personally soliciting the sup- poit and influence of each and every Democratic voter. i 11 î wm ci 1F SS At* and will be taken to Welsh Funer- ivming rvipicy r <%i nier eral Parlor FuneraI services w i be conducted Sunday. ... . n , . . .

Burke, a 45-year-old farmer living near Grandin, solved the case when they jailed Ed Barnett, 41 years old, a former convict who farms near Doniphan, and Orison McKinney, also a farmer. John E. McKinney, father of Orison, who was at first questioned about the killing, was released on a $5000 bond. Burke was killed from ambush while he was watering his mules at sunset Monday evening. At the Doniphan hospital, where he was taken after his 8-year-old son had seen him fall and summoned help, it was found that a charge from a shotgun had entered his body on the right side of the abdomen. The motive for the slaying centered around approximately two and a half acres of land, the ownership of which Burke and the elder McKinney had each claimed for some time. And although both men, prominent in their community, had quarreled over the lan.i, the murder was planned by Orison McKinney, who hired Barnett to kill Burke for $25. Capt. A. D. Sheppard. Sgts. R.

T Presnell Urges Care of Expectant Mothers lor. Complaint has been made to this office that electrical refrigerators nave been purchased through the Municipal Light Superintendent at cost plus freight. We know nolh- about this, but will say there arc six or more mercantile establishments in Sikeston who pay taxes here, who pay merchants taxes and license, and who live here, that handle electric refrigerators of one sort or another and they are entitled to these sales and the profit thereon in order they may pay their bills to the local electric light plant. Sunday is Mother’s Day and every soul who has a Mother living should, in some way, remember her. In our young manhood there was no Mother’s Day set aside as how and while we always thought of Mother, there were few’ remembrances sent her as they now do. This is to tell young folks who have a Mother living to make the day a happy one for her if only personal congratulations and appreciation for what she has done for you.

PHYSICIANS ACCUSED OF VIOLATING NARCOTIC LAW Three Sikeston physicians were charged in Poplar Bluff Tuesday with violat ng the narcotic laws, following an investigation made here by two government agents from the bureau of narcotics of of the United States Department the Treasury. The men, Dr. A. A. Mayfield, Dr. Howard Dunaway and Dr. J. F. Waters, had a formal hearing before H. H. Freer, United States Commissioner, and were bound over to the October term of the Federal Court in Cape Girardeau, when a federal grand jury will review their case. Bond was set at $500 for each one. % It is said that about a week ago two men went to Dr. Mayfield’s office at 214 West Malone Averue and posed as incurable dope addicts, moaning, groaning and holding their stomachs in the presence of witnesses. According to Dr. Mayfield, the two stated they were strangers passing through Sikeston and wanted only one prescription of morphine to enable them to leave town. An examination, he said, revealed that one had chronic adhesions from an old operation in his lower abdomen, the other, ulcers of the stomach. They both showed places on their arms which indicated they had been given shots before. Dr. Mayfield now believes these marks were made by a sharp pencil point. He gave them a prescription, but in a few days they returned. When Dr. Mayfield questioned them, they said they had obtained temporary jobs and needed addition­ al morphine. This they were given. On Monday they visited Dr. Mayfield for a third time, but after he had written a prescription for them, they showed their badges and told him he was under arrest. The manner employed by the agents in getting morphine from Dr. Mayfield is said to be similar to that used in the cases of Drs. Waters and Dunaway. It is understood that narcotic agents, traveling to towns, inspect drug store prescription lists and then question doctors who have been issuing numerous prescriptions. The narcotic law provides that physicians may prescribe as much as is necessary. Because several of Dr. Mayfield’s patients are acute sufferers, it is said, he has been allowing more morphine than ordinarily. The two agents are Leroy T. Sutherland and Paul Q. Halterman. R. E. Bailey has been retained as attorney for the three accused men. vi) ail «SSlSvSIlc ry at the Uni% süokè Thurs- ophoWores, jun- Charles F. Mullet, an assistant professor of history at versity of Missouri, day morning to-^opho1 iors and seniors, at the high school auditorium. In outlining to students the advantages of attending the university, Mr. Mullett was co-operating with members of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, who are attempting to interest more young men and women in the university so that the institution’s enrollment will be increased. After a talk at 1 o’clock Thursday before Charleston high school students, Mr.. Mullett returned to Columbia. Dr. G. W. Presnell stressed the need of proper care for mothers, both before and after the birth of their children in a talk which he gave before members of the Lions Club when they met with the Catholic ladies at the old Catholic school building Wednesday for a regular weekly luncheon session. “During 1933”, Dr. Presnell said, “in the United States, where Mother’s Day originated, over 10,000 women died needlessly to bring a human being into the w’orld. What more noble and worthy purpose could Mother’s Day have than to be dedicated to safe-guarding the mother in the achievement of her biggest destiny!” During a short business meeting men were chosen as delegates and alternates to the State Lions Club Convention w’hich will be held at Steeleville on May 27, 28. 39 and 30. Delegates are Ted Kirby, E. F. Schorle, Joe Sarsar, Ralph Anderson and C. L. Blanton, Jr.; alternates are Leon D. Gmeiner, M. M. Beck, John Powell, Pete Medley and Dr. W. A. Anthony. The text of Dr. Presnell’s speech is printed below: “Mother’s Day means something very definite to everyone, if we have lost a mother there is nothing but the memory to venerate, and to him whose mother is still with him, it serves as an occasion for showing her how great a place she has in his life. “Sentiment should have a place in the life of every one of us, and there is no one who appreciates sentiment more than our mothers, but Mother’s Day is going off the strictly sentimental standard. It was formerly used as a day of almsgiving, but today we realize it is of far more importance to safeguard her life and health. During 1933, in the United States, where Mother’s Day originated, over 10,000 women died needlessly to bring a human being into the world. Over one-half of these women could have been saved by adequate maternity care. What more noble and worthy purpose could Mother’s Day have than to be dedicated to safeguarding the mother in the achievement of her biggest destiny! “It is most important for the mother that she have early and good advice in order to prevent many of the complications which end disastrously to both mother and babe. The responsibility rests with the father to see that nothing has been left undone that will assure her safety. It is therefore important to get men’s clubs thru- out the country interested in the part they can play toward securing better maternity care for all Five Are Charged With Killing Show Employe A woman, together with her son, two daughters, and a daughter-in-law, was placed in the Pemiscot County jail in Caruthersville Wednesday and charged with the murder of her husband, Russell operated by “Chief Rolling Cloud”, an Indian, had been playing in Caruthersville for two weeks.

We need to arouse the public to the fact that the death rate is too high. I believe it is said that a greater number of mothers die in America than in any other country from childbirth. This is not due to incompetent service during labor, but to prenatal care. We have not aroused the interest and importance of safeguarding the complications. We need a nation-wide campaign to make ‘motherhood safe for mothers’, and when a number appalling and unnecessarily large—over 10,000 out of 16,000. who annually die in child birth could be saved if only adequate care could be had, it is time to oe aroused and very concerned. In addition to these giving their life, we have many, many women left invalids for lack of necessary care. “Surely we should make some effort to save mothers. We should have groups in every community to work with their own physician, health offices, and nurses to alter those factors which are detrimental to safe motherhood. Unfortunately every community in the United States does not have facilities for giving adequate care to every expectant mother for *he price she can afford ot pay. The expectant father should find mi what the facilities are in his own community, so as to make the best use of whatever is available. He should make certain of: “1. A doctor to care for her from the time she thinks she is pregnant until she is able to resume her regular activities. The doctor will make a physical examination, take her blood pressure, examine her urine, and measure her to determine how much room there is for the baby to be born. He will want to see her or have reports every three or four weeks throughout pregnancy. He wili help her to decide whether to go to a hospital or stay home for the baby’s birth. He will want to see her and the baby several times after the baby comes. Then he will examine her about three months later, to make sure everything is again normal. “2. A good dentist to go over teeth and clean them, fill any cavities, and teach her how to care for her mouth. “3.

Because the body was not badly decomposed, it is thought Evans was killed sometime late Friday night or early Saturday morning. Evans and his family were members of the “Zarlington” troupewl^ After the quarrel, which occurred in Bragg City week before last, he had followed the troupe and for several days had been living in a tent directly north of Caruthersville with Otto Cravens and Barto Hubbard.
