THIRTY CHILDREN ANSWER
CALL FOR BIT OF FLESH
' This morning six children will
stand near the operating table in the
German American hospital and allow
Dr. H. J. Haiselden to peel "several
square inches of skin" from their
bodies to be transplanted to the
thighs of Little Francis Jahns who
was burned by a bonfire last June.
Dr. Haiselden decided it would take
a skin grafting operation to enable
Francis to walk again, so he adver
tised for children who were willing to
help. Yesterday 30 children came to
the hospital. Of these, Dorothy
Riggs, Dr. Haiselden's 15-year-old
adopted daughter; Margaret Hut
yera, 16, 1854 Belmont; Agnes Te
chew, 17, 637 Dewey pL; Robert and
Frank Holt, 14 and 11, 802 S. First
av., Maywood, and Gilbert Rogers,
10, 7428 Lowe av., were accepted.
In a few days Dr. Haiselden thinks
he will be able to tell Francis that he
can walk and play like other little
boys this summer.

WOMAN HURT IN SWING DOOR
AT ROTHSCHILD'S IS DEAD
Mrs. Mary Etten, the shopper who
was injured in a revolving door of
Rothschild's department store just
before Christmas, was buried today.
Her death , followed a lingering ill
ness which, her relatives say, was
caused by a broken hip suffered in a
fall while attempting to get to the
street through a swinging door.
After the accident employes of the
store picked her up and carried her
to the emergency hospital and later
to an outside institution, where phy
sicians treated her for a fractured
hip. Mrs. Etten was 66 years old
and the injury was a serious one.
She was confined in her home at
3918 Prajrie av. until her death on
Att'y Geo. L. Reker, who filed suit,
criticized the store for not having a
man nearby to 'watch the doors to
prevent just such accidents as hap
nened to Mrs. Etten.
v He said that the revolving door
was designed for the benefit of the
stores and not the shoppers. It was
supposed to allow the passage of a
greater number of peoplethan the
ordinary swinging door, without let
tin cold drafts into the store.
A young man who bore the ear
marks of one who has spent a great
deaPof time in the rural districts
walked into a Cherryvale grocery ,
store the other day and asked for a
10-cent bottle of vanilla. He told the
shopkeeper he needen't wrap, it up,
that he would take it just as it was.
As soon as the purchase was se
cured the youth topk out of his
pdcket a carefully folded white hand
kerchief, removed the cork from the
bottle and poured a small amount on
the cloth. The clerk must have
shown his surprise, for the boy
smiled pleasantly and explained.
"There's going to be a sociable out
our way tonight." Cherryvale
