Chloromycetin Used
In Treating Cases at
Children's Hospital
Thanks to the new wonder drug,
Chloromycetin, Constance Stokes,
21 months, won a recent bout
with typhoid fever in three days
at Children's Hospital.
Before Chloromycetin was de

usually kept its victims critically
ill for about three weeks.

Mrs. James Stokes, of St. Marys
City, Md., is the third youngster

In two of the cases, officials said,

Scott's Defense Plans
Fight Against 99-Year
Sentence in Murder
(y tht A»ocrat*d Pr»i»
ROANOKE, Va., July 4.—Lee
(Buddy) Scott, 16, sentenced to
99 years in prison for the strangu
lation slaying of pretty Dana
Marie Weaver, a high school
classmate, remained calm today
as his attorneys prepared for
further legal battles in his behalf.
T. Warren Messick chief defense
council, has until Wednesday to
make known the grounds on which
he has asked that the verdict
against the young high school
athlete be set aside.
Mr. Messick made the motion
immediately after a Hustings
court jury found Scott guilty of
slaying Dana Marie, also 16, in
the parish house kitchen of Christ
Episcopal Church on May 8.
It took the jurors two hours and
13 minutes to find the Jefferson
High School junior guilty of first
degree murder.
If Judge Dirk A. Kuyk fails to
set aside the verdict, Scott, whom
the defense pictured as a “fine
young man,’’ probably will be
sentenced Wednesday. If he is,
his counsel has indicated the case
will be taken to Virginia's Su
preme Court of Appeals.
The youth, whom ■ the State
dubbed “an unusual, cruel killer”
as it asked the death penalty,
presented an unruffled front at
the Roanoke City Jail.
“Well, what do you think of
that? he asked a guard shortly
after he was led from the court
room Saturday.
“How many books do you think
I can read in that time?” .
Scott was visited by his parents
yesterday. Whether or not he
has eaten all of his meals since
the trial ended or attended jail'
church services could not be
In the week-long trial, the State
charged Scott killed Dana Marie
to silence her after he had made!
immoral advances.
The defense said Scott, Eagle
Scout and choir singer, had led
a “spotless” life marred only by
the church tragedy.
Never contesting the charge that
Scott killed the girl, the defense
said he did so in a “mental black
out” after Dana Marie had made
disparaging remarks about Jimmy
Webb, high school athlete and
“hero” of Scott’s.
The defense maintained
throughout the State failed to
show a "sex” motive for the crime.
Massanutten Caverns
To Be Auctioned Friday ,
By Jfi* Associated Press
—Massanutten Caverns, one of
the Shenandoah Valley's under
ground attractions 5 miles east
of Harrisonburg, will be sold at
auction Friday.
The property’s owner, Mrs.
Ethel Irwin Lineweaver, said she
is disposing of the resort because
her health does not permit her to
continue its management.
There are 194 acres in the prop
erty; a lodge, a swimming pool
and a nine-hole golf course.
The caverns were discovered in
1892 by Augustine Armentrout,
who was blasting for stone for
agricultural lime.
