NOTED MEDICAL AUTHORITY. Dr. Robert Jared Bliss Howard Died in London, Losston, Jan. (. Dr. Robert Jared Bliss Howard, a noted authority in tho medical world, died here yesterday. He Bankhart Wouldn't Consider the Offer and Recommended Cannell. Hnoer, N. H., Jan. L. Cannell of Everett, Mass., 10. .Jackson was to day appointed head of the Dartmouth toothall team tor the coming season. A statement isucd by the athletic council said that after consideration of tarious coaching possibilities and after personal conference with interested alumni, including Lawrence H. Bank hart, of Lynn, the selection of Cannell was made. Bankhart said he could not le con sidered available for the position for personal reason. He further stated, according to the committee, that in his opinion the choice of Cannell would afford a logical and desirable solution of the present problem. Cannell is a former Dartmouth captain. watched the civil war while carrying on the duties incident to the withdraw al of the Red Cross commission. The so-called White Guard under Kolchak was defeated by the Red Guard and now the latter is left to lace the Jap anese who are watching them stealthi ly from the eastern section of Siberia. The soviet government desired to have the Red Cross commission remain and carry on its mercy work, but the or ders of the state department held and the work was concluded although the situation is described by Major McDon ald as terrible. He says, the people of Siberia are waiting in squalor, poverty and disease-infected quarters for the next act of the terrible drama. Major McDonald brought back photo-, graphs of the scenes along the route of the Red Cross commission across Sibe ria. Some of, the pictures are declared to be too terrible for reproduction. There are pictures of men hanging from telegraph poles, of gaunt typhus wrecks awaiting death, of humanity reduced to a state of barbarism. Something of the scope of the Red Cross work in Siberia was told by Maj or McDonald. Between Vladivostok and the Ural mountains there were operat ed at least 2o Red Cross hospitals; clothing and supplies were given direct ly to thousands oTV refugees; at the time of evacuation provisions had been made for six 1000-bed quarantine camp hospitals, and mobile operations were under construction. Thousands of lives were undoubtedly saved. One of the memories which the major cherishes, among the many which crowd through his mind, whenever he recalls his Siberian experiences, is the spirit of the American Red Cross girls, who under the most trying conditions siciit themselves freely, with patience and fortitude, to relieve the suffering. Major McDonald is at present in Needham, Mass., visiting his sister. He will be pleasantly remembered by majiy Barre people. He attended the'scluwls of Barre, where he was brought up, and prior to the war was engaged as a pro fessional accountant.
