by the Pennsylvania state board of;
medical examiners to Dr Fredcrlch P. i
Frledmann of Rerlln. who asserts he

local physicians that he would not

a temporary license giving him per-

"We will never grant Dr. Frledmann
a temporary license." declared Dr.
Baldy last night "In the first place,
the laws of the state do uot permit
such action, and secondly, the mem
bers of the state board of medical
examiners do not Intend to make
themselves responsible for Dr. Frled
mann and his 'cure." If he wishes to
come here and treat patients and col

compelled to take the state board

SCHINAS NOT
IN POLITICS
(x r e e k Newspaper
Publishes Letter Re
garding fxing George's
Assassin
New York, March 21. The Greek I
newspaper Atlantis will publish today
a letter from a Greek In this city,
which the editors of the paper say
Contains reliable Information con-j
cernlng Aleco Bchlnaa, the assassin of '
King George.
The letter is written by Rasll Batz-1
noulis, who claims personal acquaint
ance with Schinas and who says the;
man was an anarchist but never en
tered politic! and was not a candidate
for election lo the boule. or Greek
chamber of deputies. ;t reported
"Aleco Schinas comes from the vil
lage of Kanalla.' Ihe statement reads.
"He has a brother In Volo named
Hercules Schinas, who has a chem
ist's shop there The assassin work- j
ed as an assistant As It often hap
pens with brotbers, they had a quar- '
rel and Aleco camo to America Here!
he could not stand the heavy work
and returned to Greece.
The statement that he was the
founder of a school of anarchism or;
was a candidate for the boule Is en
tirely untrue, because he was en
tlrely reticent and all he did was to
go from the chemist's shop to a cof-'
fee house and back. He had no friends j
in Volo I was George Schinas who
was a candidate for the boule.
"Aleco Schinas had nothing to do j
with any school and had no Idea of
entering politics. He was known as
a man who loved isolation and his!
backgammon. He wore a beard and)
was an anarchist. He was more than
: ". y old, -.fmri in stal ure and
slightly humpbacked"
Solon S. J Vlasto. editor of Atlan-I
tls. said the many conflicting sto-j
ries that had arisen in this country
concerning the assassin's identity a
rose from the fact that Schinas is I
a common surname in Greece and it
is quite likely that there is more
than one Aleco Schinas.
"Information that I have received
from other Greeks who have lived In
Yolo and from our cable dispatches
lead me to believe that the informa
tion given by Batznoulia is correct,";
I aid Mr. Ylnsto.
