Chicago, Jan, 31. Remarkable re
sults, even with severe and compli
cated cases of scarlet fever, as in
dicated in it dispatch from Hartford,
Conn. Thursday night [have dy*en
obtained by the use of the Dochez
serum, the American Medical Asso
ciation announced today.
The results as found by Dr. Fran
cis G. Blake of New Haven, Connec
ticut, must be checked up, however,
according to Dr. Morris. Fishbein,
editor of the Journal of the Amer
ican Medical Association. The As
sociation gave out the following of
ficial statement:
“On January 28, Dr. Francis G.
Blake presented to the Connecticut
League for Nursing Education the
results obtained in treating scarlet
fever with the Dochez serum. The
facts are as follows:
“Thirty-four uncomplicated cases
treated on or before the third day
become a febrile and showed no
symptoms of scarlet fever. One of
these was extremely toxic and un
conscious; three were very toxic;
eighteen were moderately severe
•{•uses; 12 were mild cases.
“Three of these patients had mild
complications later. Ten patients
without complications treated after
the fourth day seemed to recover
within 18 to 36 hours.
“Nine patients with complications
treated before the third day were
all convalescent within 18 to 48
hours. One of these was very severe
and six were moderately severe.
“Out of the 19 patients with com
plications treated after the fourth
<iay, one with meningitis, cleared up
in 48 hours, one with general septis
died; one with typhoid recovered and
the remaining patients recovered.”
The serum used was that of Dr.
Alphonse R. Dochez, medical inves
tigator in New York City, formerly
of the staff of the Rockefeller In
stitute for Medical Research, who
isolated the specific scarlet fever or
ganization a year and a half ago.
He was born in San Francisco.

Financial Settlement Is Be
ing Negotiated, Report
Los Angeles, Jan. 31.—Attorneys
are negotiating a financial settle
- metn between Charles Spencer Chap
lin, rpotion picture comedian, and
the IG-year-old bride he married in
Mexico last November, says the Los
Angeles Times today.
The fact that Mrs. Chaplin, for
merly Lita Grey, leading woman for
the comedian, had joined members
of her family in consulting attorneys
became known, according to The
Times, upon arrival here a week ago
of Edwin McMurray, San Francisco
attorney, and uncle of the bride.
He is quoted as admitting the fi
nancial negotiations are in progress,
though declaring that “there is no
connection betwen these negotiations
and any contemplated action for
separation or divorce.”
What part, if any, the anticipated
arrival of an heir to the Chaplin
fortune has played or will play in
the negotiations has not been dis
closed, nor has any hint been di
vulged of the possible terms of the

Washington, Jan. 30.—A nyo n e
wanting expert advice about “Keep
ing Cool With Coolidge" should ap
ply to those distinguished journal
ists, George Harvey and William
Allen White.
George and Bill were invited to
spend a week-end with the presi
dent on a hit of a cruise in the good
yacht Mayflower. Naturally they
accepted. Such invitations aren’t
turned down out-of-hand even in
winter time.
But the Mayflower had hardly
cast loose from her moorings
with its distinguished cargo than
the mercury started to fall. It drop
ped 60 degrees in the 30 hours cov
ered by the cruise.
Of course neither Harvey nor
White blames the weather on Cool
idge. It was just a “coincidence,”
they say.
But both admit that “Keeping
Cool With Coolidge” became a lot
more realistic during the cruise than
it did during the campaign.
Just as the air is full of all sorts
of sounds, in these days of radio,
so one needs only the proper mech
anism to enable him to pull a con
cert, a lecture or a bedtime story
out of the ether.
Just so, also, is it full of illimit
able energy, needing only the prop
er apparatus to enable mankind to
draw from it the power with which
to run automobiles propel steam
ships, drive power plants and per
form all the myriad tasks for which
man now harnesses steam and elec
tricity. '
Such is the claim of Garabed T.
K. Giragossian, who has been at
the heels of Congress for the past
eight years to grant him special
patent protection for an alleged
“free energy” invention. This in
vention, which Giragossian claims
would at once relieve us of the nec
essity of damning rivers or digging
in mines to obtain sources of pow
er, would simply enable us to “tune
in” on the energy that has been
stored up in the atmosphere since
creation began.
The unusuaj thing about Giragos
sian is that, unlike most inventors
who seek special favors or hint at
revolutionary discoveries,-he is able
to convince members of the patents
committees of Congress that he “has
Back in 1918 a joint resolution
providing for a demonstration of
Giragossian’s “free energy genera
tor” was adopted by both houses of
This resolution guaranteed him
full patent protection in case the
test passed the analysis of a board
of scientists.
Giragossian at that time declined
to disclose his mechanism on the
ground that the resolution put
upon him the burden of proving that
he was the “first and original in
ventor” of the method, which he said
he would be unable to do.
An amended resolution relieving
the inventor of the necessity of such
proof, but drawn so as to protect
other inventors or discoverers mak
ing similar claims, has been report
ed from the House Patents Commit
tee to the present Congress.

about branding any claimed inven
tion as a “fake.”
And this Boston inventor has
been able so to impress the Congres
sional committees with his general
high intelligence and integrity that
he has them all “guessing.”
“Scientists tell us over 7000 dif
ferent products can be produced
from coal," Giragossian says. “We
now burn this coal to get energy,
thereby destroying forever the in
gredients it contains.
“All this would be saved to future
generations by my free energy gen
