Youth Arrested
For Lynching
In California
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 13. - (P) -
With a promise of a pardon for the
defendant from Gov. James Rolph,
Jr., authorities here today pushed
plans to prosecute Anthony Cataldi,
18 years old, on a charge of violating
the state lynching law for participa-
tion in the mob which hung the kid-
napers-slayers of Brooke Hart.
Cataldi was arrested on informa-
tion furnished by A. L. Wirin and
Ellis O. Jones, representatives of the
Civil Liberties Union, which de-
manded prosecution of the mob lead-
In furnishing the information
which led to Cataldi's arrest Tues-
day, Wirin and Jones produced news-
paper photographs and statements
credited to the youth indicating he
was one of the leaders of the mob
which stormed the county jail here
Sunday night, Nov. 26,and seized
Thomas Thurmond and J o h n
Sheriff William J. Emig said the
arrest of Cataldi was a move to hold
him until his case is presented to
the grand jury. The sheriff added
that other alleged leaders of the mob
probably would be arrested.
Cataldi's bail was set at $5,000
cash or $10,000 bond, which he was
not able to furnish immediately.
Richard Brassani, Cataldi's attorney,
said his client was innocent and that
he was "just shooting off his mouth"
in statements credited to him.
The state lynching law provides
a penalty of from one to 20 years
in prison. Gov. Rolph, who condoned
the lynching, said he had not changed
his previously announced intention
to pardon anyone convicted of par-

Health Service Bulletin Flays
Unhealthful F ood Preparation

Sanitation in relation to the proper
preparation and dispensing of food
and the care of food handlers in
keeping free from communicable dis-
ease is the subject of an official'
Health Service report issued in con-
nection with the criticism aroused by
the spreading of an epidemic of
Amoebic dysentery by a cook in a
Chicago hotel recently.
There are many questions which
a goods and drinks dispenser might
be asked to determine if he main-
tains a standard of health safety
above the average of restaurants and
soda fountains generally. Has the
milk been pasteurized, the spoon or
drinking glass properly cleaned; is
the food handler free from com-
municable disease; does he keep his
bands washed properly and his fin-
gers out of his mouth and away from
his nose; and is a good standard of
general cleanliness maintained? If
the food handler can not give such
assurance,, basic points in sanitary
food service are not provided with
your purchase.
Milk Is Best Food4
Milk is the best single food as far
as the character and variety of food
elements are concerned, but for sev-
eral reasons it is probably the most
likely to spread disease, according
to the report. Under very special
conditions, raw milk may be pro-
duced and served with a high degree
of safety, but generally speaking milk
is not safe unless it has been pro-
tected by heat such as in proper pas-
teurization. If the food values of
milk are damaged at all in pasteur-
ization, that value is readily provided
in a wide variety of fresh fruits and
vegetables, partiuclarly citrus fruits
and tomato juice. Other points of
food sanitation include thorough
cooking of pork.
The provision for proper washing
and heating of dishes, glasses, and
silverware is usually a weak point at
small restaurants, boarding houses,
and soda fountains. The "slopping"
of spoons and glasses into cold or
lukewarm water is very inadequate
and is probably responsible for the
transmission of many saliva born in-
fections. Adequate washing with
soap and rinsing in hot water are
necessary, the report stated.
Problem Is Difficult
The problem of assurance that food
handlers are free from communica-
ble disease is rather difficult, but a
high standard of safety requires that
such workers be examined carefully
at least once a year. A completely
satisfactory examination includes an
x-ray study of the lungs, a throat
culture, and a careful examination of
the urine and feces.
The frequent observations that
waiters and food handlers are care-

less about washing their hands after
the toilet is not much worse than to
observe those people with their fin-
gers in and about their nose and
mouth while handling food and food
utensils. They should be instructed
and required to correct such habits
in any place which is concerned with
sanitary safety for patrons.
Cleanliness Is Essential
While general cleanliness of equip-
ment, dress, and surroundings are
not protection against the specific
dangers mentioned above, there is
some validity in the idea that a place
which is generally dirty will present
dangers of the more specific sort.
Eternal vigilence upon the part of
proprietors of food-serving establish-
ments is the price to be paid for
protection of patrons against the
hazards of communicable disease and
such protection should be recognized,
attract the patronage, and the pos-
sible additional price which it is
worth, the report concluded.

Mohr Blasts
Race Suicide And Nordic
Pride Is 'Debunked' By
Noted Norwegian
(By Intercollegiate Press)
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 13. - In
a lecture at the Harvard Medical
School here Dr. Otto L. Mohr, pro-
fessor of medicine at Royal Fred-
eriks University of Oslo, brought
tumbling down a long list of super-
stitions about heredity.
Among the ideas without genetic
foundation, he said, were race sui-
cide, the pride of "blue bloods," the
hereditary influence of alcohol and
nicotine, and the danger of inter-
The genes pass down through gen-1
erations unaffected by the influences
which some people dread, he said.
"The genes are exceedingly stable,"
he went on. "Among the thousands
of experiments which have been
aimed at the existence of acquired
characteristics, not one has led to
convincing affirmative results. How-
ever, changes in genes do occur and
must have a cause.
"Intermarriage has frequently been
blamed for causing degeneration of
old families or even races. This is a
crude fiction. The family line has
reached a point where no more male
members exist - it's that simple.
"Race-crossing is also blamed for
race deterioration. Everywhere those
who believe themselves to be Nor-
dics outbid each other in eulogies of
the marvelous inborn qualities of so-
called Nordics. It has been a repul-
sive spectacle and the tragic conse-
quences of this thoroughly unscien-
tific appeal to prejudice and snob-
bery are seen in Europe today.
"Some people are proud when able
to trace their pedigree back to the
portrait of a remote ancester. From
a genetic point of view, such pedi-
grees are rather comical. Six genera-
tions back we have 64 ancestors.
What does it matter to know one,
when the rest are equally important
"Reconstruction of the family
tree reveals persons socially and per-
sonally undesirable. Such investiga-
tions are not apt to promote our
respect for so-called 'blue bloods.' "
Appendicitis has become a public
health problem because of its rapid
spread in the last ten years, accord-
ing to Dr. George P. Muller, profes-
sor of clinical surgery in the Gradu-
ate School of Medicine, University of
Pennsylvania. It has become so com-
mon, he says, that 20,000 young
people die each year in the United
States because of it.

Princeton Students
Show News Desires
PRINCETON, N. J., Dec. f3-(Spe-
3ial) -That Princeton students read
interviews and editorials in the Daily
Princetonian and look wtih disfavor
on town news, lecture reports, and
national news was indicated by an-
swers to a questionnaire given to 100
men here.
Ninety-six said that they go far-
ther than the headlines when read-
ing the paper. Only 33 signified that
they read the daily column of po-
litical comments, while 31 favored
more national news. Seventy-seven
students said they would not be in-
terested in additional town news
while 74 said they did not read lec-'
ture reports.
Sixty-four showed that they en-
joyed reading interviews. The ques-
tion, "Does the paper overemphasize
athletic news?" was answered nega-
tively by 84.
One of the most striking answers
of the poll was that made by 85 men
who said that they read and enjoy
the editorials. A like number ex-
pressed their desire to read the com-
