SUPREME COURT MUST DECIDE
PARENTS OF INCUBATOR BABY
Washington, Oct. 2. What is prob
ably one of the most unusual cases
which will come up in the Supreme
Court at the term which opens in a
few days is the one in which the
court must decide who is the parent
of the "incubator baby," which was
on exhibition at the Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition at St Louis nine
years ago. For nine years Mr. Lottie
R. Bleakley of Topeka, Kan., who
claims to be the mother of the baby,
has fought in the courts for her pos
session. She appears now before the Su
preme Court as prosecuting witness
against a detective, whom she
charges with having kidnapped the
baby from her home. On the other
hand Mr. and Mrs. James G. Barclay
of Douglas County, Illinois, claim the
child by adoption. Barclay was an
employe of the St Louis world's fair
and watched the "incubator baby"
grow while the two-pound mite was
at the fair in her glass cage.
Then he and Mrs. Barclay adopted
the child. They declare that Mrs.
Bleakley is mistaken about the par
entage of the child and state that
Mrs. Bleakley's baby died a few days
after it was born and that the "in
cubator baby" is not her child.
