LUNGS KEPT INFLATED
SIMPLE APPARATUS THAT MAKES
HEART SURGERY POSSIBLE.
Operation Thoroughly Demonstrated
Before Kansas City Clinic?Shown
to Have Passed the Experl
A dog's life was sacrificed at the
Coates Mouse in Kansas City to show
Kansas City surgeons and nearly a
hundred others that heart surgery?
the sewing up of *jtab wounds and the
removal of bullets?is porsible. Those
present predicted after the demonstrat?
ion that such practice would be com?
mon among surgeons within five years.
After more than thirty years of
work, during the entire period with?
standing the bitter attacks of the antl
vivi^ectionists, Dr. F. Merill Ricketts,
of Cincinnati, and the other pioneers
In the field, have perfected a system of
administering anesthetics that makes
heart surgery possible.
Dr. Ricketts, who gave the dem?
onstration before the Western Surgical
association, made his first experiment
In 1874. Since then doctors connected
with the Rockefeller Institute in New
York have pushed the investigation
also. Hundreds of animals have been
sacrificed In the work, but since the
experimental stage was passed tbe
lives of 74 persons already have been
saved, and yet only two or three sur?
geons in the United States have learn?
ed the operation.
Formerly the lungs of persons tinder
an anesthetic collapsed, causing death,
when the chest was opened by a sur
reon. The apparatus used by Dr. Rick?
etts, consisting of little besides a bel?
lows and a rubber tube, keeps tbe
lungs inflated during the operation.
The anePthetic Is administered in air
forced into tho lungs by the bellows
ased to keep tip artificial respiration.
The wonder of the method is to a
great extent In Its simplicity. Dr.
Ricketts in 20 minutes was able to
demonstrate to the eager surgeons tbe
pntlre process of operation on the
heart, the lungs and the other bion
'This development In surgery has
passed the experimental stage,*' Dr.
Ricketts said. "Already 178 opera?
tions on the heart have been per?
formed, and of these 74 were success?
ful, the patients recovering. This is
% wonderful percentage, considering
that death was certa'n otherwise in
"BulletB were removed and knife
wounds sewed up. Most of the opeia
tions were performed at the Rockefel?
ler Institut'-. iiy this method of ad?
ministering anesthetics the patient
may be kept alive for hou?

self and in its operation, ,o

geon anywhere. To a Dr. Williams, a
negro, of Chicago, belongs the credit

eration on the heart as long ago as

GAME COCKS DOWN TEAM PROM
sr. john'S HIGH SCHOOL in
Whole Bosnier Team Starred?Inters
fercDOQ Mid Handling of l oi-ward
Pnases Was Unexcelled?Large At?
tendance out for Ganse?Beete 38
In a test game of foot bail the
Gome Cocki of the Bumtor High
School football team Friday after?
noon walked away from the boys of
the Bt John's High School at Dar?
lington with a Victory, greater than
any the Darlington boys have ever
been able to achieve over them.
The game was fast from start to
finish. The Darlington 'oys put up
a fame light all the way through and
mode some good gains through the
line. ;?round end and handled them?
selves well, but the Sumter men
simply had the ginger on them and
\\er< aide to handle themselves just a
little bit better than their opponents.
In weight the two teams were pretty
evenly matched, with the odds slight?
ly in Sumter'l favor. In playing the
Sumter men showed up better in form,
knowledge of the game and in ability
to execute maneuvers calculated to
outwit their opponents.
For the visitors Rucker was a ca?
pable head and a good gainer. Dar?
lington also had good ends and the
baekfield was strong although slightly
hampered ^y the slowness of Rucker
at quarter. Several times the Dar?
lington boys got loose for good gains
through the line at d around end, and
one or two forwarc passes were nicely
executed, although others were brok?
en up and several attempts to ount
were blocked. Even then Rucker
showed that he could boot the ball
far up the field and with a stronger
line, the Darlington boys would have
put up a closer game for their op?
ponents. For Darlington, Rucker,
Jeffords, Wilson, and Fulton played
Sumter's whole team starred. There
was no time in the game that some
player did not make some feature
play, which classed him among the
l>right constellations. Cuttino, Booth,
Hall were all good ground gainers.
They also put up some as fancy de?
fensive playing as has ever been seen
on the local grounds. Hall especially
showing up well in the first part of
? v.r. .romp. Simnson ran his lesr*< well
oka to th< most advantage to tr em
aim toe &i*-.?.?.<.degree of discom?
fiture to his opponents. In the line
McKay, Dinkins, Brunson and Law?
rence held firm and at times did srme
brilliant piece of work which ca led
for the cheers from the sidelines. At
center Randle showed that he has the
stuff to make one of the best college
centers ever seen in the State. He
played his usual steady game and
passed the ball unerringly, at the
same time stopping attempted bucks
behind the line time and time again.
Sumter's first touchdown came in
the first quarter, near its close, when,
after Darlington had taken the hall
far down the field, Rucker kicked and
Alexander brought the bail out from
behind the goal line and carried it
twenty yards before being stopped.
From here it was merely a matter of
time, and half a minute before the
quarter was over Cuttino carried the
ball over for the first touchdown. In
I the second quarter Sumter by buck?
ing sent Hall over the goal line a sec
ond time and on the first play after
the kick-off Cuttino intercepted a Dar?
lington forward p iss and ran twenty
yards for a touchdown.
In the third quarter Sumter used
the forward pass with telling effect,
gaining forty yards on two of them.
Booth carried the ball across the line
on a buck, but fumbled and Hall re?
covered iL. making the fourth touch?
down of the game. Sumter gained
twenty yards on the first play, a fake
pass, then sent Booth serosa the line
on a straight buck. In the last quar?
ter Sumter got the ball on a fumble
and by straight bucking made the
sixth touchdown of the game and
made the final score of the game 38
to a, Cuttino having kicked only two
