"Sharp points on the bridge have cut the esophagus and let air escape Into the boy's throat," said Dr. John Prendergast, medical director of the hospital. "Until this cut heals a bit and the air In his throat Is absorbed, we cannot operate. But the longer we must delay the greater Is the danger of a fatal Infection developing." Dr. Prendergast could not estimate how soon the congestion In Mogill's throat would clear, but acknowledges that the operation must take place within a few days. Mogill Is the son of Samuel Mogill, of 533 Hague Ave. The bridgework loosened Tuesday while he was eating and lodged In his throat, later slipping down to the esophagus. The Instrument with which surgeons hope 16 cut and remove the bridgework in small pieces Is a thin but powerful shears. A metal tube, with a light bulb the size of a grain of wheat at one end, will be inserted in Mogill's throat, and the long-handled shears operated through the tube. A plaster cast of the boy's mouth has been made and a model of the bridgework constructed from it, that the surgeons may know exactly what they are seeking.

VAGABOND -FOR NOW S(e Our Window Detroit's Largest Store Derated Exclusively to Men's cV Boys' Apparel MICHIGAN AVESUE Comer of SHELBY City Considers Test of Meters Pickert Urges a Trial of Parking Device The Mayor's Traffic Committee was asked Thursday by the Common Council to study a proposed test Installation of parking meters on the streets here and to submit a recommendation within two weeks. F. J. Meek, vice president of the Dual Parking Meter Co., appeared before the Council, accompanied by Police Commissioner Heinrich A. Pickert, to urge a trial installation of 6.000 meters. Meek told the Council that he estimated the City's eventual requirements at 20,000 meters. The trial for a pinety-day period. Meek said, would be made without cost to the City. The meters are clock and dial devices which are mounted on standards four feet high and set in the sidewalks 18 Inches Inside the curb. The clocks are timed to conform with parking regulations in the particular district, motorists paying 5 cents for the use of 20 feet of parking space. A coin deposited in the box rings up a flag showing that the parked car has paid on entry. The coins drop into a sealed metal tube which can be removed each day by a collector who replaces it with an empty tube. The cost of each meter. Meek said, is $58 Installed on the basis that S5 per cent of collections go toward amortizing the cost of the meters. The price, rises slightly if municipalities wish to turn over a smaller percentage of receipts. Meters have been installed in several large towns and cities.

Plumber Explains a Venerable Joke Holds Public at Fault for Extra Trips The origin of the old joke about the plumber who always had to go back for his tools was explained i Thursday at the forty-fourth an- nual convention of the Michigan Association of Master Plumbers. In the Fort Shelby Hotel by Robert E. Coulton, of 9374 Yellowstone Ave., who has been in the plumbing business 31 years. "The Joke got started about 25 years ago when galvanized pipe began to replace lead pipe," he said. "These days the plumber has his truck and when he answers a call he has everything he needs with him. Then It was different. He got a call, found out what kind of a Job it was, packed his kit and went. "That's where the Introduction of Iron pipe foozled things, because each pipe required different tools. We'd ask the customer what kind of pipe his house had and half the time he'd tell us the wrong kind. So after getting there we had to go back. That's how the Joke beganbut it was really the fault of 1 the customer. MaJ. Joel I. Connolly, chief of the j Bureau of Sanitary Engineering of the Chicago Board of Health, told l the master plumbers thst the public-health profession Is rapidly awakening to the importance of plumbing in the prevention of disease.
