Dr. McIntyre described to news men yesterday, for the first time, the seriousness of the wound which came close to "costing Miller” his life. Punctured Lung The bullet entered Miller’s chest about two inches^above his heart, Dr. McIntyre said. When it punc tured his left lung, and passed cut through his back, the bullet caused the organ to collapse, and filled with about two quarts of blood, he added. Dr. McIntyre said that he had not discussed the shooting with Miller. He added that his contact with the man had been in a pro fessional way only and that nc had no idea what Miller’s plans would be when he is released next week. However, the physician did say that Miller owed his life to the blood donors rushed to him by. his father-in-law, and to his own strong constitution. Dr. McIntyre explained that when Miller was brought to the sanatorium, about an hour after the shooting, his pulse were prac tically nil and he was as white as "a sheet.” . He was cold, too, Dr. McIntyre said. But "after we had got him ■warm and given him a blood trans fusion he began to respond”. Dr. McIntyre said that he feared for his life all that first day. Lung Clearing Now, he said, Miller’s lung was beginning to clear up and ex pand, which meant that it was again beginning to function. Dr. McIntyre said, however, that no one except the two families were being permitted to see him «t the present time because he atill is running a temperature and is highly nervous. He was described as not having much to say, and “smiled occa sionally”. Most of the time, how ever, he seemed to be in a deep study, Dr. McIntyre said. Meantime, it was learned from the Miller family, who live near Rowland, that the two Miller chil dren, four and six years of age respectively, now are living with Mrs. Miller’s brother, Allen Cur rin, Jr. The Miller family said that they did not know what David’s plans were; that he had not discussed them so far. However, they did say that Mr. and Mrs. Currin, Sr., visited him practically every day at the hos pital, and have been doing jt since he was carried there by Curnn on the Sunday morning he was shot. They said they did not know for sure where Mrs. Miller was at the present time, but that it has been "said that she is in a sana torium at Asheville. The Star’s Asheville correspond ent Tuesday called at Appalachian hall to ascertain if she were there. The institution advised the corre spondent that they would neither deny nor confirm that she was there. Yesterday the Miller family •aid they did not know what plans, if any, had been made for prose cution of the case when it is call ed in Robeson county Superior court. A criminal session of the ■ court is scheduled for next month. Their attitude toward the inci dent, which they said had ‘‘stirred up the community like nothing else which ever had happened ] there”, seemed to have settled , down from that which they ex pressed the week following the ; shooting. . Robert Miller, David's father, ■ said that he did not know where ’ hig son planned to go when he ’ was released from the hospital, but if “he wants to go back to the Currin’s, it’s all right with ‘ me.” Miller said that Currin visited • his home last Sunday afternoon. ■ But he added he did not know Cur ! rin’s business except that he “prob • ably” wanted to talk “about it to • the family”.

THRILLSLAYER TO A (SCIENCE i “ Nathan Leopold, Jailed 23 Years, Grateful For Chance To Help j JOLIET, 111. (U.R)—Nathan Leo- , P°ld, who has spent 23 years in prison for one of the nation’s most sensational murders, says he is grateful for a chance to hell sci ence prolong human lives. Leopold and Richard Loeb were sentenced to the state penitentiary in 1924 for the “thrill” slaying, of Bobby Franks. Loeb was killed in a prison fight, but Leopold has lived peacefully in the peniten tiary, .working in the hospital and library. During the war Leopold volun teered with more than 400 other inmates to submit to malarial in fection for medical experiments. He has written about the ex periments in the Joliet-Statesville Times, a monthly magazine pub lished in the vocational school of the Illinois State Penitentiary. “Being present at the very birth of new knowledge is a privilege given to few people in the world," he said. “The feeling that one has been permitted to have a small part in helping solve a grave med ical problem is the source of more solid, lasting satisfaction than most of us have ever known before.” Leopold said the “human guinea pigs” were moved by unselfish mo tives when they volunteered for the experiment, despite reports that executive clemency was being considered for them. “What prompted the inmates to support this program so whole heartedly?” he asked. “Malaria is no Sunday school picnic. “Men get very sick—sicker than many have ever been before. They have chills that make the whole bed shake; temperatures of 106 and 107 degrees are common. “Nausea and vomiting occi r fre quently; the headaches, character istic of Chesson strain malaria, are unlike any others in the world, and some of the drugs cause se vere stomach cramps . . . just why did these fellows let themselves in for this?” Leopold suggested the men were prompted by patriotism, concern for the 800.000,000 persons who suf fer from malaria each year, and possibly the hope that they might help save the lives of some of the 3,000,000 who otherwise would die each year. "We didn’t have much to lose,” Leopold wrote. “The time lost from our normal activities didn’t matter to us. as it would to a -wage earner outside.” He Joins and Joins BOSTON — (U.R) — Michael T. Kelleher, new president of the Boston Chamber of Commerce, must hold some sort of rcpord as a joiner. He is a member of 52 organizations.
