Dr. Schorer Warns Students
CONSUMPTION ATTACKS IRISH
Air, Clothing, Insects, Dust
and Food Among
"Xo graduate should go out from a
university ami display his ignorance of
the human body and its diseases by
aying 'back-cillus' for bacilli," said Dr.
E. II. Schorer, professor of Parasitology
and Hygiene in the Medical Depart
ment of the University of Missouri,
in a lecture on ''Sonic Common Causes
of Death," at the Assembly this morn
ing. In his lecture Dr. Schorer gave statis
tics to show that from twelve to fif
teen per cent of all deaths are caused
by tuberculosis, and that twice as many
Irish die of this disease as Germans.
He said it appears more frequently
among members of the negro race than
it does in the white. Among other dis
eases that are infectious are diphtheria,
typhoid fever and small-pox.
The common means which most of
these diseases get into the human body
were set forth by Dr. Schorer as fol
lows: Air, dust, food, clothing, insects,
soil, and exposed surfaces of the body.
In speaking of the various diseases
that human beings get from animals,
Dr. Schorer mentioned the disease of
glanders, from the horse. He said a
person was as sure of getting this dis
ease after being exposed to an atmos
phere containing the germs, as he was
of being burned, if he fell into the tire.
Friends Transmit Disease.
"The great majority of diseases that
come from bacteria and most of them
do" continued Dr. Schorer, "we get
from somebody else. The greatest
cause of our becoming ill is that we
come in contact with some friend that
"A person need not be a medical stu
dent to understand about germs, bacilli,
and the various organs of the body.
Every student of the University should
read about these things, and if not in
the text-books, he should read about
them in the popular magazines, for they
are now beginning to carry articles
along this line."

Mystery of Mrs. Gunness'
Farm at La Porte May
By United Press.
LA PORTE, Ind., Nov. 10. Ray Lam
phere, charged with the murder of Mrs.
Belle Gunness, the arch-murderess of
La Porte, and of her three children, was
placed on trial here yesterday. A hard
fight is being made over the selection of
jurors, the attorneys for the defense
questioning salesmen to discover if they
are convinced that Mrs. Gunness is dead.
Three with positive beliefs were re
jected. It is expected that the entire mys
tery surrounding the Gunness farm,
where numerous murders were com
mitted, will be cleared. Doubt has been
raised whether Mrs. Gunness perished in
the fire which destroyed her home and
on this it is expected the defense will
be partly based.

Sunday afternoon when demonstrations
in rolling the "coIlin tacks" were given
by two young women. They were ac
companied by two men who took merely
a silent part in the performance. Al
though it was strictly a dress rehearsal,
several outsiders had a look.
One of the girls, according to witness
es was an expert. She rolled cigarettes
with a llourih that would have left
any male competitor far behind. Her
companion was not .so adept. Her han
diwork re-embled many things, but
hardly a cigarette.
The burning nuestion of whether the
girls finished smoking their products
was unanswered. The watchers say
thev saw- nothing burning.
