Limbs of Boy, 7, Turning to Stone Doctors Study Strange Malady While Death Approaches WILKESBARRE. Pa.. April 1 (U. P.) The medical world today waicneo seven-year-old Benjamin Hendrlck, whose body Is slowly turning to stone. Victim of a strange malady which fosters ossification of the body tissues, he was puzzled by the constant stream of specialists who visited his room In General Hospital. He does not know that the disease, now solidifying hia arms, back and thighs soon will spread to his vital organs. "Why are all these people looking at me?" he asked his nurse, who replied that they "are just friends of your mother." Already Benny's thin arms, from shoulder to elbow, have turned hard as rock. The affliction has changed most of his back. It is only a question of time, physicians say, until the malady reaches hia heart. Benny, other children in his ward say, "does not eat much," but he still enjoys a good night's s'.eep. When he talks it is of aviation and his hope some day to be a famous flier "like Llndy." He is one of five children In the Hendricks family, who live in suburban Larksville. Ocean Ships NEW YORK. April 1 Snt An. from San Franriiw-f, SOfTHAMITO.N. April 1 PmnlMid. SVom Npw York. lOBH.
