FROM OHTER ISLANDS
LEPROSY SLOWLY BEING
READ THE GARDEN ISLAND
Board of health officials announced
yesterday at a special meeting of the
commissioners that It is not expected
any Inmates of the Kalihi Receiving
Hospital will be sent to the leper set
tlement at Kalaupnpa thisyear, says
the Advertiser of Friday.
This, the officials sam, ts a Healthy
sign that leprosy, which has been on
the decrease in Hawaii the past few
years, is being slowly, but surely con
quered by science and medical re
search. Yesterday the commissioners ap
proved the recommendations of the
board of medical examiners and
granted parols to 30 Inmate-patients
of the receiving hospital nine males
and 21 females. These have been giv
en their liberty and will proceed im
mediately to their homes throughout
the Islands. They win report at stated
intervals for the next six months or so
to the medical authorities, who will ex
amine them to note if there is a recur
rence of the malady. '
Many Are Paroled
Last December 28 inmates were par
oled and to date it has not been found
necessary to recommit any of them to
the receiving hospital. With the 30
paroles yesterday a total of 58 have
been discharged from the receiving hos
pital. At present there are 85 patients
remaining at the hospital.
Dr. P. E. Trotter, president of the
board, reported yesterday that inmates
unteer boosters for the chaulmoogra oil
treatment spreading throughout the
Islands the news that tins treatment is
efficacious and of the greatest benefit.
As a result the board Tias toeen Inform
ly afflicted with the malady have given
ed that a number of persons supposed
themselves up to the authorities and
agreed to be subjected to the treat
ment. To Ask More Money
Tho next territorial legislature will
be asked by the board of health for a
liberal special appropriation to provide
for the employment of at least two or
three chemists and specialists who
are to devote their time to further de
velopment and study of the treatment
and apply it particularly to patients at
Kalaupapa and Kalawao, Molokai Set
tlement. The chaulmoogra oil, which local
scientists now believe is practically a
cure for leprosy, is the product of a
tree grown In British India. The oil
as now used in the treatment has been
prepared by Dr. Arthur L. Dean, presi
dent of the University of Hawaii, as
sisted by Dr. J. T. McDonald.
Prof. J. F. Rock during a recent vi
sit to India secured seeds of chaulmoo
gra tree and an effort is being made to
propagate the species in Hawaii, with
what result remains to be seen.
The chaulmoogra oil has been ob
tained by the territorial board of health
in limited quantities through the good
offices of the United States public
health service in Washington.
The 30 inmates paroled yesterday
from the Kalihi Receiving Station were
all treated with this oil. Thirty-two
were examined and only two failed to
pass the medical tests. Of the 85 in
mates still at the hospital Doctor Trot
ter said yesterday there were only two
serious, or what is known as "bad"
THREE CHILDREN DIE
BY DROWNING IN
Three Japanese children were drown
ed at Hilo late Friday afternoon while
swimming in the Wailuku river pool.
The fatalities occured when one of the
boys, aged six, became exhausted and
his brother and sister, aged eight and
twelve, went to his help. They were
dragged under by the younger brother.
The bodies were recovered by persons
attracted by the cries of the chidlren
and four physicians worked for an
hour in an effort to resuscitate the vic
tims, but without success.
DR. McKELLAR IS HANDED
ABSOLUTE DIVORCE DECREE
Dr. Ruth Alexander McKellar, who
resigned recently from the service of
the territorial board of health and who
expects to leave shortly for the main
land, was granted a decree of absolute
divorce Thursday by Circuit Judge
John T. De Bolt from her husband,
Major Harry R. McKellar, Medical
Corps, U. S. A. Nonsuport was charged
by hs wife, says the Advertiser.
Judge De Bolt permitted Dr. McKel
lar to resume her maiden name of
Ruth Alexander and Major McKellar
was ordered to pay her $2500 in lieu of
gross and ultimate alimony and $500
fee to her lawyer.
The McKellar divorce suit has been
before the territorial courts the past
two years and was bitterly fought by
both wife and husband. Major Mc
Kellar at one time attacked the juris
diction of the circuit court, claiming
that his wife's residence was that of
ber husband's domicile, In Georgia,
but be lost out on this point.
