HARRISBURG, PA., MONDAY EVENING, MAY 8, 1916 GIVES NEW FACES TO WOUNDED MEN Sculptor, Son of Former Har risburger, Docs Re markable Work In the New York Sun yesterday a story was printed from London re garding the remarkable work of Lieu tenant Derwent "Wood, a sculptor well known in the United States. Before the outbreak of the Euro pean war Wood was commissioned liy Lady Paget and the Duchess of Marl borough on behalf of the American women in England to execute the statue of William Pitt which, as soon as circumstances make the thing more suitable, will be presented by them to their native land in com memoration of the hundred years of peace between England and America. Lieut. Wood has discovered how to give new faces to men who have lost theirs in the war. He can make new eyes, cheeks, foreheads, chins, in fact, he is making thpm daily. The restoration of the disfigured faces is little short of marvelous. His "masks," as he calls them, consist of plates of thin copper, slH'ered and then painted to match the hue of the patient's skin. They are light to wear, they fit like gloves and the men declare that they give no discomfort whatever. Yes, they are intended to be removed at night exactly like a set of false teeth, and they are easily cleaned with a little potato juice. Most of them can be kept in place by means of "ether'gum" such as actors use. Father a Harrlsbuifspr Lieutenant Wood enlisted in the Royal Army Medical Corps at the be ginning of the war. He was not available for active service. His fath er, Alpheus Baylies Wood, who died in England in 1907, where he had lived for many years, was born in Harrisburg an(i was a descendant of two distinguished officers of the American Revolution. Col. H. Baylies, aide-de-camp on General Washing ton's staff, and Capt.' William Rice, of the Continental line. His nieces residing here are Mrs. William C. Pfouts, Mrs. John A. Westbrook and Mrs. George W. Mindel. Lieut. Wood declared that the American-made artificial limbs were by far the best in the world and spoke admiringly of the work that is being done at Roehampton by Americans in the way of equipping armless and legless soldiers.

Y„ May 8, —A service for the burial of children and their reception into the church is pro posed in a revised ritual of the Meth odist Episcopal Church which was sub mitted to-day for action by the Gen eral Conference, in session here. Pre i viously only a ceremony for adults has i existed. The report was offered by a special i committee appointed in 1912 and is the third proposal recently made for a change In the form of service pro vided by John Wesley when ha insti tuted the church in 1739. The argu ment was advanced during discussion to-day that a modification of the word ins is necessary to consistency of usage and greater clearness and brevity. Op position was heard on the ground that, the language; of the present ritual had been made sacred by continued use. "Sin" for '-Devil" The new form suggested provides that the service for the baptism of in fants and for ordination shall be greatly shortened. The burial service would be modified by the insertion of additional scriptural selections giving fuller expressions of the Christian hope as found in the New Testament. In the marriage ceremony It Is pro vided that when the ring is used the words "and with all my worldly goods I thee endow" shall be omitted, for the reason, the committee reported, that the ceremony itself implies com mon ownership of property. It is also proposed that the word "devil" shall be stri'-kon from passages where it occurs and thai the word "sin" shall be substituted. The phrase "the trumpet shall sound and the dead be raised" would be eliminated, on the ground that it means the resur rection of the spirit and not of the body. The same reason is advanced for substituting in the burial service the Twenty-third Psalm for the Thirty ninth Psalm. The committee reported that desire not to lengthen the ritual led to the rejection of proposals for. services for special purposes. i' I According to International news dispatches from Lon don late this afternoon Lloyd's reports that the White Star ' » liner "Cymric" has met with an accident in midocean and is ! rapidly sinking.
