WOMAN SCIENTIST DELVES
Deeply in blood mystery Ur. Kdlth J. Clayiioolc nt work with hrr mlcroarupe. a| woman. Dr. Edith J. Claypoole, of the University of California, is try ing" to solve the most baffling riddle of medical science—sterptothrlcosis. This disease so obscurely under stood, resembles tuberculosis, and is usually confused with that scourge by tlie majority of doctors. Only the most skillful can detect sterptothrlcosis, and then only when t he. disease has reached a most ad vanced and malignant stage. There exists no simple and sure way of isolating the sterptothrix, the organism which causes the inys terious and deadly disease. Dr. Clay poole is trying to find a way. Through cultures and with her microscope she is endeavoring to trace the life of this germ—what chemical action it sets up in the blood, and the means of proving Us presence. % "I hope," she said, "to simply estab lish satisfactory clinical tests that will muke the diagnosis of this dis ease easy. I am seeking a test that will work as the Wassermann blood test does for other diseases. It' 1 am successful it will solve the riddle of this dreaded malady. There is noth ing unusual a bold the work at all." War Scare Leads Judge to Refuse Injunction in Government Wireless Case TRENTON, Nov. 18.—"War may break out at any time and the policy of this court is not to enjoin the gov ernment from getting any apparatus It may need for the protection of the people,” was the decision of United States Judge Rellstob yesterday on the application of the National Elec tric Signaling Company for an injunc tion restraining the Marconi company from making further deliveries of cer tain goodst to the government, espe cially deliveries of goods to the great signaling station at Arlington. United States Attorney Davis ap peared as an intervening party for the government, and this provoked the remark from the court. Counsel for the National company said that his company could supply the in fringing apparatus to the govern ment and make as rapid deliveries as can the Marconi company. The court said, however, that It would not dis turb tills Marconi contract, in view cf the possibility of war. The court did issue the injunction running against all other contracts.

Voorhees Justifies Sentence of Boy Who Shot Stepfather CAMDEN, Nov. 18.—As a result of the agitation started to try and have tlie fifteen-year sentence imposed upon a young man who killed his step father for heating his mother Judge Voorhees issued a statement today, in which he showed that the long term was justified. He is upheld in his sen tence by other members of the New Jersey judiciary. "Facts that were not on the record showed that this family was of the lowest order," said Judge Voorhees. "The stepfather was not married tb the woman, but. had lived with her for years. The son who did the kill ing had a bud record. He killed a girl fourteen years old about seven years ago. That case was not prosecuted because his family made a settlement and the State officers could gel no evidence."
