Collection Cost $300
Specimens Of Sapphires,
Rubies Taken; Police
Work On Clues
The robbery of a valuable part of
the mineral collection was discovered
yesterday morning in the Natural
Science building by a janitor, who,?
while dusting the cases found some
pocks tampered with.
Prof. W. F. Hunt, head of the min-
eralogy department, stated that the
exact time when the robbery was
committed cannot be determined, but
it is known that it occurred either
Saturday night or sometime Sunday.
Crowbar' Was Used
It was discovered that a crowbar
was used to pry open certain cases,
which was done withouttbreaking
their glass. The specimens stolen
consisted of 19 small uncut diamonds
which were not of gem quality, but
had natural crystal faces, nine speci-
mens of gold, and a few specimens
of, rubies and sapphires. A few of
these stones were cut, but most were
uncut, Prof. Hunt stated.
The estimated cost to replace this
collection was set at about $300. Prof.
Hunt explained that the thief un-
doubtedly wanted these specimens for
a collection or study, because their
actual monetary value is not very
Other Locks Intact
There is some doubt as to how the
robber entered the room as no damage
was dne to the locks of either the
doors or the windows. However, the
general belief is that he either open-
e4 the doorlock with a small wire, thus
pushing the catch of the lock back
and gaining entrance, or he concealed
himself some place in the room while
the museum was open, waited until
everyone was gone and the doors lock-
ed, and then began work.
Police took photographs of some
fingerprints which were found around
the locks, but as yet it is not known
whether they will be of any help.
Gives Hopes To
CHICAGO, Oct. 8.- )- Samuel
Insull, late Midas of the utilities, can
pin some hope for acquittal on the
marathon aspect of his trial- a jinx
to the prosecution.
The government was considering
night and special Saturday sessions
to shorten the proceedings, but the
tremendous volume of evidence still
was enough to stretch it out for
The trial of J. Ogden Armour and
nine other packers in the "beef trust"
case in 1911-1912 - three months and
twenty days - ended in an acquittal
for the defendants. A similar verdict
was returned recently in the 120-day
racketeering-conspiracy case involv-
ing the cleaning and dyeing, laundry
and carbonated beverage industries.
Both were among the longest on rec-

On Problem Of
Medical School Committee
Discusses Research On
Although the Drug Addiction Com-
mittee of the National Research Coun-
cil has not yet succeeded in dis-
covering synthetic chemical com-
pounds which completely satisfy the
conditions of morphine as to pain-
relieving properties without the ac-
companying addiction features, it has
made definite steps toward that end,
Dr. Charles W. Edmunds and Dr.
Nathan B. Eddy, of the committee and
the Medical School, point out in their
article, "Some Studies On The Drug
Addiction Problem," in the October
issue of The Quarterly Review.
"Drug addiction in America seems
to offer a problem revolving around
morphine and its substitutes. Accord-
ing to the most reliable estimates
there are approximately 120.000 ad-
dicts in this country," jointly state
Dr. Edmunds and Dr. Eddy.
"The research problem divides itself
into three main parts; the preparation'
of synthetic chemical compounds at
the University of Virginia, their phar-
macological study at Ann Arbor, and
finally the study of the action of the
selected compounds on the human pa-
"One such substitute, novocaine, or
procaine, has already been made. This
substance is very satisfactory for use
in the production of local anaesthesia
when it can be injected directly into
the tissue. Unfortunately it does not
penetrate very well when it is applied
to the eye or nasal mucous membrane
or to the throat, so that cocaine is
still largely used for surface anaes-
thesia," the committee reports.
