Flees From His Bed and Hides
From Doctor Before
It was with emotion very akin to ter
ror that MorltK Wlnkelmann, an old
atone maon, learned to-day that he
must go to a hospital For four day
he had been 111 with pneumonia In hi
home, No. 2(3 1'ast fine Hundred and
Thirty-sixth treet, the Bronx, and Dr.
Charle Olntberg of No. 330 East Two
Hundred and Thirty-sixth street, seeing
the old man grow worse deeptte his min
istrations, advised that he be removed
te a hospital at once.
'They can give you the sort of care
that your wife and daughter can't pos
sibly supply," explained the doctor. But
Wlnkekiian only shook his head stub
bornly and declared:
"I won't go to a hospital. That's all
there Is about It."
Always he had had a horror of hos
pitals. Th physician left, but first he took
Mrs. Wlnkelman and her daughter. Mr.
HaUte Relhl, to una side and urged on
them the necessity of hurrying Wtnkal
man to some Institution.
"He'll die If you don't," ha told the
women. "We have done all we can and
he Is getting worse. He needs constant
attention such as he can get only in a
So Mrs. Wlnkelmann went In to hsr
husband and told him how necessary It
was that he submit to the doctor's or
ders, but the old man pleaded hard not
to be sent away, begging:
"Pleas. Emma, don't make me go.
Let me stay here. I'll gat better. I
know I will. Hease don't gt an am
bulance." HIDES TO KEEP FROM GOING TO
The wife wept at her husband's
pleading, but convinced she waa acting
only for hi own good, In fact was
doing th only thing that might save
his life, she left him without nuking
a positive answer, but once beyond his
hearing, allowed hei daujrhter to hurr
out to summon an ambulance. Then,
heartbroken, aha sought Mrs Qsorgi
