SAYS ANSWER JS FINAL , C. Stewart, E. S. Lewis and Wallace Simmons Are Men tioned as Possible Members. Governor-elect Folk has not made up a 'slate' of appointments. The only fore cast that has had a positive ring has In volved Nelson W. McLeod, an original Folk man, as the head of the Police Board. This rumor reached Its end last night, however, when Mr. MceLod authorized a statement to the effect that he cannot pos sibly make the business sacrifice necessary to a proper attention to police affairs. Governor-elect Joseph W. Folk said jes terday afternoon that he would not an nounce any appointments until he hail taken the oath of office In Jefferson City. He insists that no slate has been pre pared and that publications heretofore made purporting to give the list of his ap pointments have been without foundation. However, among the close friends of Mr. Folk gossip regarding the personnel of some of his appointments has been grad ually getting more and more definite dur ing the past few days. For instance, it may bo said that the Indications Point to the selection of the Police Board from among E.'C. Simmons, WaCace D. Sim mons, E. S. Lewi, A C Stewart and A. C. Maroney. Mr. McLeod having definitely decided to keep out. " It Is an open secret that Mr. Folk has long wished Mr. McLeod to ha president ot the new board. It is also an open secret that business matters have been so press ing that Mr. McLeod has said from the be ginning that he would be unable to accept the honor. Added to this Is the further fact that, like Robert H. Kern, also a member ot the Folk campaign Executive Commit tee, he announced before the election that he would not accept an appointment. DEEMS TALK UNWISE Mr. McLeod said last night, regarding the gosslD concerning his appointment: "Whatever has been said about my con nection with the new board has been most complimentary to me. I feel, how ever, that a discussion of the subject at this time would be unwise. I am will ing to say, however, that In the probable event that I shall have "no connection with the next State administration. I shall al ways stand ready to do all tn my power. In a personal way, to further the develop ment of the Idea that has gained such headway in Missouri. Anything on the subject ot Mr. Folk's intentions in the matter of appointments cannot, of course, come from me, since I am merely an in terested lookeron." A C Steward is also discussed for the presidency of the board. He has been as sociated with the Folk movement from Its Inception and Is a friend of Mr. McLeod. He is a member of the: law firm of Stew art, Cunningham 4 Eliot and counsel for tha St. Louis Union Trust Company. Both B. C. Simmons and his son, Wal lace D. Simmons, are discussed aa prob able appointees.' It is said that the father is averse to serving on the board. Wal lace D, Simmons Is president of the Sim mons Hardware Company. EL 8. Lewis, who was treasurer of the Folk campaign, is also discussed, and his friends are counting upon him as one of the new members of the board. A C Ma roney, at present Assistant Circuit Attor ney, Is mentioned for the Police Board, as well as for the Board of Election Commis sioners. MAT BE FOUR VACANCIES. There tvlll be three vacancies on the board, and possibly four. The terms of William G. Frys and T. R. Ballard will expire, and it Is said that Richard Hanlon probably will resign the first of the year. Possibly Anudrew Blong may follow, al though he has not said that he would. Friends of Congressman- W. D. Vandl ver. as has been previously announced, ex pect that he will be the State Coal Oil Inspector, to succeed William J-. Flynn. Absolutely no person hts been selected for Excise Commissioner, despite all reports to the contrary, and tha place Is open. For Election Commissioner, besides Mr. Maroney, the names ot Judge R. E. Rom bauer and John FJ. Shepley are most prominently mentioned. Mr. Shepley is one of the best-known citizens of St Louis, and has always been active in publlo work. Judge Rombauer is attorney for the School Board, and was formerly on the Court of Appeals bench. Friends of Harry B. Hawea assert that he win work in entire harmony with the new Police Board; that the fight against Butlerlsm In this city will be continued from now until the spring election, and a clean city ticket will be nominated for the suffrage ot the citizens.

Calls-Attention to Act of Con gress Slaking Jury Inter national. GIVES IT SOLE AUTHORITY. Says Germany "Would Sot Have Exhibited if Findings Were to Be Revised by Katiqnal Commission, fjf Doctor Theodor Lewald, Commissioner General to the World's FaIrvTrom Ger many, and first vice president of the' Su perior Jury of Awards, has taken issue with the contention of the National Com mission of final jurisdiction in the matter of awards made by that jury. When asked yesterday If he had seen the letter of President Carter to Major Pangborn, outlining the claims of the Na tional Commission, and for his opinion of lta merits. Doctor Lewald mads the fol lowing statement: 1'Of course, I read the letter of President Carter and the statement made by Preal dent Francis. I fully share the stand' point as expressed In this statement, but would, however, like to draw attention to one very important point in particular. "In the act of Congress it is stated ex pressly that the Exposition shall be inter national in character, and the rules and regulations state explicitly that the jury shall be international. In accordance with this the representatives ot foreign nations have been members of the Group Jury, the Department Jury, the Superior Jury and the Committee of Five. "It would, therefore, be Irreconcilable with the international character of the Exposition were a corporation, be It the National Commission or the Exposition Company, which are not International cor porations, In any way to interfere with the distribution of tha awards. JURT MADE GERMANY'S AWARDS. "There Is no doubt that the Imperial Government of Germany would never havb permitted Germany's partldpation In the competition had there been the slightest possibility that the findings of the Inter national Jury could be changed by any corporation that was not an International one. "As the Committee ot Five has definitely determined aU of the German awards, I have already had the list published In the Official Journal of the German Govern ment. "I have participated In the meetings of tha jury from the first day. The number ot Germany's representatives was seven ty-two. Among them were men who are the most prominent and ablest experts In their respective field of knowledge, and a number ot them had already served as jurors at former International expositions. "They informed me of one accord, and I have already previously taken occasion to voice their remarks, that the fullest ap preciation was due the work ot the jury at this Exposition. The gams was said of the integrity, impartiality, expertness, earnestness and devotion to duty shown by the jurors in nil the various instances. "Tha awards gained in St. Louis are not in the slightest way inferior to those gained at any other exposition.

G. Pangborn, president of the United Exhibitors' Asso ciation, yesterday addressed a letter to President Carter. Major Pangborn claims that up to the moment that the letter was written there had been no Intimation to the association of which he is president, nor to himself, ot any dissatisfaction on the part of any ex hibitor with the "awards nor the treat ment accorded exhibitors either by the juries or the Exposition.

Only One Oat of Fourteen Pa tients Failed to Respond to the Treatment "Metallio Ferments" Is the Name Applied to New Find. SPECIAL BT CABLE. l Paris, Dec .-(Copyiight. L)-A set. sationa communication was made to thf Academle de Medicine to-day by Doctorr Albert Robin, who reported his disco vera of the fact that certain metals, such aa gold and silver, very finely subdivided and! employed in infinitesimal doses exercise sj considerable effect on the vital phenom ena. Reduction of the metals to the desired state is obtained by their electrical disso. lutloa In water. Tha metal so treated so. quires the property of developing a farce similar to that of a ferment. This pe culiarity of the phenomenon has led Doo. tor Robin to use the term "metallie fer menr In reporting his discovery. His metallio ferments are employed lsj case3 of pneumonia in bypodermlo In jections of from five to ten cublo centi meters of solution, containing from JK to J of a milligramme of gold, silver, platinum and so forth, produced a brusque defervesencs of the malady In six cases out of ten before the seventh day. Thirteen cures were obtained In four teen cases thus treated. There is a com plete similarity 'between the natural fa vorable crisis in pneumonia and that- pro duced by metallic ferments. These fer ments, therefore, are capable of producing, aiding or hastening this natural favorable crisis. After one or two Injections the tempera ture falls suddenly, almost always in a definite manner. The employment ot these metallic ferments does sot constitute the complete treatment of pneumonia, for complications and the predominance efi certain symptoms necessitate accessorji therapeutics, but great progress would ap pear to be made by their use In the treat ment ot this frequent and serious maladjk NO WORLD'S TOUR FOR THE PRESENT Forest Park Most Be Cleared Be fore He Departs, 8ays Pres ident Francis. & Reports of a "triumphal tour arouse) the world for President Francis are pro nounced premature by the Immediate ob ject of the rumors.

"I have made no plans for such a trip. said President Francis yesterday la dlir cussing his reported Intention to swing round the globe early next year.
