i ! o vernor Cooper is the chairman

"lt seems to me the purpose of

"Tho Woodrow Wilson Founda

russet! Away in Chicago Hospital
Within Few Seconds Each Other.
Chicago, March 30.--Josefa and
Ro3u Blnzok, tho "Siamese Twins,"'
died at a hospital hero this morning.
Josepfa's death occurred first and
was followed in a few seconds hy the
death of hor sister. Physicians had
declared carly in the night that In
t'.io event of the death of ono of tho
sisters tho other would die quickly,
as their brother, Frank Blnzek, had
refused to permit an operation which
would sever their bodies.
The twins had boen In tho hospital
ten days. Josefa was ill with yellow
jaundice, and that was followed by
pneumonia. Shortly before her death
Rosa was alllicted with bronchitis.
Preparations had been made for the
severing operation, and tho physi
cians wore ready to make ever)' ef
fort to save the life of at least ono of
the women.
Hope of saving the life of Josefa
was abandoned at midnight, accord
ing to Dr. H. H. Breakstone, chief of
the surgical staff at the hospital.
"I tried to get the consent of tho
brother to operate to save the Ufa of
Rosa, bul be refused to give his per
mission." added the physician. Dr.
Breakstone explained that a delicate
operation would have been neces
sary. Before their dcuh he.had ex
pressed tho opinion that the physio
logical a Ul ll i ty of lh>; twins was so
vital that it one should die the other
might also succomb before the band
of flesh and bone that joined them
could be severed.
Although the twins possessed sep
arate respiratory and cardiac sys
tems, Dr. Breukston explained that !
they bad only one s, i of secondary
digestivo ami procreative organs
Tho operation, ho said, would have!
i<ecessilatod tho building up of al
part of tho digestive and oilier essen
tial organs to save the lifo of one
Rosa was once married, her name
being Rosa Blazek Dvorak. She ls j
survived hy a normal 1 I -year-old
boy. Uer husband was a captain in
the German army and was killed in
action in 1017. She was married fif
teen years ago. Josefa never mar
ried. The little son, Franz, has been
at the bedside of bis mother, who, j
until within the last few hours, was
less critically 111 than Josefa. The
twins wore tho second offspring of
a normal parentage In Czecho-Slo
vakia 42 years ago. ' There were four
other children, all normal, and all
still living. The falber is also said
to be alive, his ago being Sf> years, i
The mother died a year ago at the j
ago of 65 years.
Thu twins reached the United
.Slates in February. 1U21, and start
ed on a show (our.
They were born ll years ago In
Prague, Czecho Slovakia. For (he I
last twenty years they have toured \
the theatres of Europe.
Both were moderately wealthy,
good looking and well educated.
Each twin was fully developed and
free from deformity, save for tho
narrow flesh strip that joined them
at tho hip.
They enjoyed theatres, dinner par
ties and other amusements just ai
normal people do; but where one
wont tho other had to go also. When
they differed in taste they settled the
matter hy the flip of a coln.
Tlic two had gout to leading sur
geons on both continents, hut al
ways had been h>.iv ad against, an
operation to separato them. Doctors
told them that such an operation un
doubtedly would result in the death
of at least one of them.
Twins of this kind are called Si
amese twins because of the famous
case of Fag and Chang, Chinese,who
were born in Siam with their bodlc'j
Joined. They were born In 1811 and
died in 1874.
"Many Siamese twins have been
born, but they seldom live to reach
maturity," said one of thc hospita!
physicians treating Josefa.
During a tour of the world the
twins acquired considerable weall h.
They died without making a will, al
though their attorney. J. E. Triska,
visited at the hospital several times
in tho hope that they would be in
condition to dictate tho document.
As tho women grew weaker lau I
night physicians pleaded with the
brother to permit an operation, tho
hospital attendants stated. He was
the only adult relative capable under
(lie Illinois law of giving lils con
son t.
"No," the brother was quoted as
having said. "No not even if Rosa
li vi's for hours after Josefa's death.
There shall be no operation."
Dr. J. Otragovok, personal phys!
chin Of Ibo twins, appealed to th
brother without success. Their ftl
tornoy was asked IO intervene, but
he declined IO assume the responsl
bility. Two hours past midnight Dr
Breakstone said there was no need oi
prolonging the argument with th*
"It is useless," ho said. "Tho con-1
ditlon ot ouch ls now tho same-tho ;
condition that forooasts certain
death. An operation now would do ,
no good.1'
During tho illness of tho twins, j
physicians said, tho women reacted
differently to tito same medicine, al
though their Illness recently had
been tho same. > |
Other Siamese Twins.
Medical records recalled by physi
cians who have been Interested In j
tho case disclose a number of so- ,
called Siamese twins. Tho original
Siamese twins. Eng and Chang, lived
to tho age of G I years. They mar- j
ried sisters and Chang had six chil-,
dren and Eng live, all of them nor--'
