Surgeons Operate on Spine
of Dorothy Schless to
Give Her New Life.
With the hope of making seventeen
year-old Dorothy Schiets, who former?
ly lived at Marty and Myrtle av.?.,
Brooklyn, an efficient member of the
.community, the physicians of the1
: Muncie Sanatorium. 11!) Ma?on st., per?
formed four operations upon her yes?
terday afternoon. In the evening It
j was reported that all had been succcss
! ful, and that the girl could look for?
ward to a happier future.
For th? lust three y?*arH, Hin,-c her
father's death, she has been wandering
in *d out of jobs. Frequently .she has
, been compelled to walk the streets when
' out of work, and many of the charitable
institutions of the city have become ac?
quainted with her. A probationary of
I fleer brought her to the attention of
; Dr. Elizabeth II. Muncie, who, with lui
husband, Dr. Edward Muncie, runs the
sanatorium. She found that tin- girl
was suffering from a nervous afflict on,
due to pressure on her spinal ? urd from
dislocated vertebra*, and from other
; trouhlea that could be remedied without
? much difficulty. This pressure was re
| moved by the operation.
It is believed that she will no longer
; sufTcr from the nervous spells which i
' gradually were affecting her mind. Ac- I
cording to reports at the sanatorium
' the girl has line instincts and should,
upon recovery, develop into a beautiful
I woman. Through all her troubles shy
has done nothing really wrong. All
; that she needs now is rest to enable
her to recover her full mental power.
The puzzle is where to place her until
' she is fit to return to work.
