By GEORGE McMANUS ' i i t i I I I i DEMPSEY BELIEVES HE WAS POISONED AT TIME OF TUNNEY CO NEW YORK. Dec. S. Jack j Dnnpsey told the New h oi k Am-j erican representative in Los An geles that he believed he was pois oned before the Tunney light. Physicians confirmed his suspicion the day after the bout. Dempsey said: "I was in such an alarming condition, I called the I doctor the day after the tight. I was afraid there was some organic disorder. The physician told me there were strong symptoms of poison." Dempsey said Tex Rickard told him before the tight that “Tunney got sick flying from Stroudburg so do me the favor and don't stop him too fast; let him stay three or four rounds. This is the greatest crowd we ever had and I want to givi them a run for their money ” Dempsey said: "I almost had tc laugh in his face as he was worry ing about the wrong man. I was so weak when I reached the anna that I almost fell getting out of the automobile."

Parks Reviews Alaskan Conditions During 1926 in Splendid Report. (Continued worn Page One) trails is proce'ding accoiding to a definite program that lias been con curred in by Federal and Terri torial agencies and when the work is completed there will lie a com prehensive, well-coordinated system of transportation routes throughout the more important parts of the Territory. A change in policy by the Bureau of Public Iloads adopted after a conference with the Chief Engineer in Washington last win ter, makes possible a logical de velopment of roads and trails. Here tofore the standards adopted by the Bureau of Public Itoads were not always adaptable to the conditions in the Territory. I’nder the new policy they can construct roads and trails to meet local conditions and their Held of operations has been increased. Fur Farm Leasing The law authorizing leasing of lands for fur farming, recommended by the Secretary of the Interior and passed by Congress last year has placed that industry un a better basis. Reindeer Industry The yearly increase in the number of reindeer exceeds the demands for the meat and an effort should be made to extend the market and provide transportation to centers of distribution for the frozen meat otherwise the herds will deteriorate and the ranges be overstocked. Ap proximately two-thirds of the rein deer in the Territory belong t) the natives and the herds are increasing so rapidly that irreparable damage will result unless some provision is made for protecting the ranges and THE best bread doesn't cost any more—so why not get It? The finest bakery goods ever produced are made here and they deserve a place in your home and esteem. Peerless Bakery Heyder A Meier allocating the grazing lands. There is urgent need for o new law which Will enable the Secretary of the In terior to allot and lease the graz ing lands. Such a hill passed the Senate last year but failed to he considered in the House. Indian Education Tile Bureau of Hdtiealiou is charged with tile administration if all mat ters pertaining to the welfare of til" natives, a system of schools and hos pitals is maintained throughout th"1 territory and the results of long years of patient endeavor are up parent in the improved conditions in tile villages where these inslilu-1 lions have been established. How ever much remains to be accomplish i oil. The facilities for medical relief are inadequate, closer supervision of the reindeer is essential and addi tional industrial schools schools should lie provided. Floating Clinic Tile motorboat | rovided last year and outfitted as a floating clinic was not placed in commission until about ! ihe middle of July hence tiie working . season was only about half what it should he if it is ready when navi gation opens. Properly equipped and in charge of an efficient personnel Hie boat will he of inestimable bene fit to the residents along the in terior rivers. The doctor and nurses ’should lie supplemented with a dent ist and lie permanently employed. Federal Building An adequate Federal Building is ait important factor in tlie coordina I lion of Hie Federal Departments fn j Alaska. Detailed reports accompanied iiy tentative sketches of office space land a map of the building site have been submitted to the Treasury De i partment but there seems to tie some 1 question about Hie status of the pro , jeet. It is Imped that the matter will ! he arranged and Hint tile necessary j plans will he prepared anil tlie work (started in the near future. Alaska Game Law i The Alaska Game Haw imposes j various taxes on the residents of I ha : territory, Hie Territorial legislature is vested with authority to impose j similar taxes and in fact does impose j them, lliese (axes are a source of j revenue and the territory iH entitled ilo them. Double taxation is not just, hence the tax provisions of Hie Game Haw insofar as they affect, residents of tile territory should be repealed. The residents of the interior, espec ially the natives, have been aided liv the removal of restrictions on beaver skins. Hie natives rely on the wintei catch of fur for their existence and | when closed seasons are Imposed | they are forced to take their skins j and sell them to dealers in eontrn | band fur at a reduced price. The ! trapping of fur bearing animals is t prohibited in many sections anil ini 1 mediate Investigation should be made to determine whether or not these restrictions cannot be removed altogether or at least changed to per mit the trappers to take a limited number of skins. Care of Insane The insane of Alaska are cared for under contract at Federal expense in a private institution. The Secretary of the Interior has submited a report to Congress on the situation and it is hoped that provision will be made to care for lliese unfortunates in a Gov ernment hospital. Health Guarded Because of the abnormal number of smallpox eases on the Pacific Coast in the winter of 1925-2G quar antine measures were placed in ef fect and all passengers enroute to Alaska were examined. The Public Health Service cooperated with the Merry Musical Christmas Pianos—Players—Piano Bench—Violins—Cases —Ukes—Music Stands—Brunswick Phonographs —Records—Expert Piano Tuning—Phonograph Repairing. ANDERSON MUSIC SHOPPE, Phone 143 NEXT TO A. B. HALL Territorial Health Service and 11.851 passengers were vaccinated, in the territory (he members of the Terri torial Health ''oard, Surgeons of the Public Health Service, and the phy sicians of the Itmvuu of Education vaccinated all who applied lo Ilium. It is estimated mat about one fourth of Hie population was treated. As a result there were no eases of small pox reported in the territory, Having in mind Hie diptheria epidemic of 1921-25 and Hr- inadequate prepara tions that had been made to meet such an emergency, it was decided to take all possible precautions lo prevent a recurrence of those con ditions. The Territorial Health Hoard and the l-. S. Ilureau of Edu cation have distributed smallpox vac cine anil diptheria anti-toxin to ail Hie larger towns and villages in tile territory. Written instructions have been prepared and sent to each sia lion, which il is believed will enable any intelligent person to administer the vaccine in case of an emergency. Incorrigible Indians An Industrial school for incorrigi ble native hoys should lie provided in Alaska. The Federal Judges recom mend this because they are frequent ly confronted with the necessity of disciplining these boys and it Is a difficult situation. There are no suit able institutions in Alaska- and it is ; expensive and unsatisfactory to seni the hoys to state institutions even though they may lie such institution that will accept them'. The new en vironment may be desirable hut 111 change in climate and mode of living is not conducive lo continued good j health. Furthermore it is becoming almost Impossible to find accommo dations in reform schools. It is not desirable nor advisable to send lbest boys to jail because the inevitable result is that in some of Hie villages there are boys and girls who are ex erting an undesirable influence on their associates. They cannot Ic placed in restraint because of (lie lack of suitable house of correction and in some instances they are de uied admission to the schools be cause of their delinquencies. For the biennium ending March 21, 1927 the Territorial Legislature appropriated $910,111.76 for the sup i port of schools and the Agricultural [ College. This /Is about 46 per cent of the total revenues and represents a per capita expenditure of about $17.00 per annum for the white pop ulation. For the same period $t!08. 400, or about 16 per cent of the rove ! uues were allotted to the support of | eleemosnary institutions, the care of indigents, dependent children and re I lief of destitution. This is a per capita expenditure of about $0.00 per annum for the white population. It is believed that tlie per capita ex penditure shown above is not ex ceeded by any stale or territory. Arctic Strategic Position Alaska, because of its strategic I position, was chosen as the objective of the Amundsen I’olar Expedition on (lie journey from Spitzhergen over the North Hole. The “Norge" was safely landed at Teller after a successful trip across the polar le gions and there the ship was dis mailed and packed for shipment to Italy. The Wilkins Expedition se lected Point Harrow as a base for Its explorations and during tlie win ter several flights were made be tween Fairbanks and Point Harrow. These expeditions demonstrated that transportation over air routes during the winter months is possible and not unusually dangerous. Aerial Mapping The U. S. Geological Survey of the nlterlor Department and the U. S. Navy joined in an expedition tor the 1 purpose of making aerial photo graphs of Southeastern Alaska. I Hi - iug the summer most of the larger islands and a portion of the main land were photographed. From these photographs it is possible to map the forest areas, power sites, coast line and principal topographic features. Since only u portion of the coastal atea of Alaska lias been photograph ed the work should be continued un til all of the forested region lias been mapped. Severe Restrictions Under the existing mining law greater restrictions are imposed on the placer miner in Alaska than in the public land states. Such restrii tions retard development and should be removed. It is believed that the establishment, of one Federal agency in the Territory charged with tile en forcement of all laws would promote effieigency and reduce the cost of administration.

Steffen, coach of the Carnegie Tech football eleven tlial surprised the sport world by wallop ing the previously undefeated Noire Dame team, lias returned to his role as Judge of the Superior Court in Chicago.
