Dope Cure I s
Developed By
Loea octors
Drs. iTheophil Klingmann,
William Everts Report
Revolutionary Method
Tell Of Successful
Cure In 200 Cases
Patient Enabled To Repel
Opium, Morphine By
Use Of Drug
A successful cure for morphine
and opium addicts was announced
yesterday by Dr. Theophil Kling-
mann, chief of the staff of Mercy-
wood Sanatarium and a former
member of the Medical School facul-
The cure is for drug addicts in the
grip of morphine, opium, or other
poppy derivatives, which involves the
immediate deprivation of the drug at
the start of the cure, rather than the
usual lengthy method of gradually
cutting down on the amount al-
lowed, Dr. Theophil Klingman said.
Dr. William H. Everts, a graduate
of the Medical School, assisted Dr.
Klingmann in developing the cure,
which, according to Dr. Klingmann,
has resulted successfully in more
than 200 cases in which it has already
been tried.
Uses 'Twilight Sleep'
His method involves the adminis-
tration at the outset of scopolamine
hydrobromide, 'the drug popularly
known as "twilight sleep" occasional-
ly used by obstetricians, under whose
influence the addict is able success-
fully to combat the shock induced
by the sudden removal of the drug's
Long used as an antidote for over-
doses of morphine, scopolamine hy-
drobromide has been considered too
dangerous by medical authorities- to
be taken in large quantities, but a
harmless method of administration
in 27 repeated doses over a period of
two days has been evolved by Dr.
Klingman and his colleague.
Upon emerging from the influence
of the "twilight sleep," whose after
effects Dr. Klingmann offsets with
five doses of pilocarpine nitrate, the
patient is normal, suffering neither
from the morphine nor from the
lack of it.
Must Cure Disorder
Dr. Klingmann bases drug addic-
tion upon some more fundamental
physical or mental disorder which
has induced the patient to adopt the
drug habit. This underlying dis-'
order, he maintains, must be over-
come if the cure is to b.e permanent.
For this purpose, if the disorder is a
physical one, the specialists in that
field give the patient treatment for
his disease before the cure for the
habit is begun. .
In the case of an incurable disease,
Dr. Klingmann said, he would not
even attempt to effect a lasting cure
for the drug habit. He pointed out
that the extremely small proportion
of his patients who had reverted to
the drug habit had first had a re-
currence of the disorder which had
started them out in the first place.
After the administration of sco-
polamine hydrobromide, the patient
is started on a regime of several
weeks to rebuild his body and to re-
adjust his mind. The psychiatrists
have during that period an excellent
opportunity to learn any mental
cause for his habit and after secur-
ing accurate information about it,

Hoover Demands
Ickes Apologies

Former President Herbert Hoover
said today that he had sent a tele-
gram to Secretary of the Interior
Harold L. Ickes challenging a state-
ment made by Ickes Jan. 3 at Roches-
ter, N. Y., to the effect that Congress
in the Hoover Administration passed
unconstitutional laws.
Mr. Hoover demanded "an apology
to the public" from Secretary Ickes
and attributed "the falsity of this
statement" to New Dealers in Wash-
ington and Democratic publicity men.

Court Of Pardons To Hear
Bruno's Lawyers' Plea
For Mercy Tomorrow
NEW YORK, Jan. 10.--A)-Dr.
John F. (Jafsie) Condon, star wit-
ness for the state in the conviction
of Bruno Hauptmann for the kid-
naping of the Lindbergh baby, board-
ed the S. S. Santa Rita late today,
bound for Latin America.
Declaring that his part in the fa-
mous kidnaping case was ended,
"Jafsie" added that he was seeking
a rest and would be away indefinitely.
Even as he boarded the ship his
name again entered the case.
Gov. Harold G. Hoffman, of New
Jersey, who tomorrow will sit with
other members of the State Court of
Pardons to hear Hauptmann's plea
to save himself from death next week
in the electric chair, announced that
he had requested a magazine to for-
wardhim the manuscript of a. recent
article by Dr. Condon in which he
purportedly "told all" about the kid-
naping and murder case.
Believed Important
"I believe it is highly important,"
said the governor, who declined to
give any further explanation.
The departure of Dr. Condon fol-
lowed within the short space of sev-
eral weeks the exodus of the Lind-
berghs and the Morrows.
In Trenton Attorney General David,
T. Wilentz said tonight that Condon
had permission of the state to sail
for Latin America.
The seventy-ive-year-old former
Bronx teacher was accompanied by
his pretty daughter, Mrs. Byra Con-,
don Hacker, who followed her father
on the witness stand at the Fleming-
ton (N. J.) trial just a year ago.
Dr. Condon said his plans were
indefinite. The ship's destination is
Valparaiso and Callao via the Pan-
ama Canal. He indicated he and his
daughter may stop for sometime in
Panama. The ship is scheduled to
reach Panama on Jan. 17, the day
Hauptmann will be executed unless
the board of pardons acts favorably
upon his plea for clemency.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10. -(/P) - A
$9,550,000 profit to a J. P. Morgan
syndicate for underwriting the first
big Allied war loan was revealed to-
day by the Senate Munitions Com-
mittee, coupled with a charge of high
pressure tactics in selling the issue
to the American people.
This development capped a furious
battle of denial and accusation which
had J. P. Morgan himself grimly
slugging it out verbally with the com-
mittee on the latter's insistence that
his firm influenced a reversal of
American neutrality policy to permit
the $500,000,000 loan.
Repeatedly the financial leader
thundered his indignation as Senator
Bennett C. Clark (Dem., Mo.), per-
sistently contended that the Morgans
precipitated a panic in the foreign
exchange market to achieve their
"There had been direct accusations
that the New York bankers brought
on the war," asserted Morgan, care-
fully weighing his words. "I want to

Vote Growing
In Dioest Poll
Only 38.11 Per Cent Favor
Roosevelt's Policies; 36
States Remain Opposed
NEW YORK, Jan. 10. - (P) - The
vote against the New Deal increases
markedly as over 300,000 more ballots
are reported in the latest tally of The
Literary Digest poll bringing the total
vote so far to 1,688,462.
In answer to the poll question of
"Do you now approve the acts and
policies of the Roosevelt 'New Deal'
to date," 634,514 are shown maked
"yes" and the balance of 1,044,948, or
61.89 per cent, are tabulated as bal-
loting "no."
The vote in support of the New
Deal has declined from 46.72 per cent
in the first report to 38.11 per cent
in this week's tabulation.
Thirty-six states, which represent
399 out of a total of 531 electoral
votes, continue to express disapproval

of the administration's policies in the
latest returns. The other 12, all
Southern and border states with the
exception of Utah, still voice approval
of the President's policies.
The additional ballots tabulated in
the current issue of the magazine
indicate a larger affirmative vote for
the New Deal in 11 states and a de-
creased percentage in the 37 other
states since the previous week's re-
port. The only sharp declines are
noted in New York and New Hamp-
Mississippi and South Carolina give
a 70-80 per cent majority for the
New Deal, while six other states give
a 60-70 per cent approval and four
more states show a percentage of 50-

Massachusetts is the only state

disapproval of the New Deal. The

Camps For Underprivileged
Youths To Be Established Soon

Perinanent Site, Buildings,
Staff Planned For Camp
At Waterloo
A federal project calling for the
establishment at Waterloo, and later
possibly throughout the nation, of
permanent recreational and training
camps for economically underprivil-
eged boys between the ages of 16 and
20, out of work and out of schiool, was
announced yesterday by the youth
council of the local Rotary Club.
The project, which now awaits
only formal approval of the detailed
plan and budget from the federal
administrator's office at Lansing, was
evolved under the leadership ofDr.
Max Minor Peet, eminent brain sur-
geon and member of the University
Hospital Staff, who undertook to
carry the project for approval past
Howard Hunter, federal relief ad-
ministrator of the Chicago district,
comprising 17 states, Audrey Wil-
liams, national head of the NYA, and
finally to President Roosevelt him-
self, with whom Dr. Peet had had
several conferences as a member of
the committee in charge of distribut-
ing the funds from the President's
Birthday Ball last year.
In each case Dr. Peet reported an

enthusiastic acceptance of the plan,
which would establish a sort of "com-
bination Boy Scout-CCC camp" for
the boys left unsupervised between
those two groups.
Plans call for a year-around camp
with a permanent site, permanent
buildings, a permanent staff, com-
plete equipment for training and re-
creation, and a staff of directors
chosen for their experience in youth
guidance and the administration of
such groups of boys as will be gath-
ered in the camp.
Pointing out that "the age of
crime right now is 19," Dr. Peet
said that more than 100,000 boys in
Michigan who are within that age
group are at present both "out of
work and out of school."
While the present project plans to
start with only about 100 boys, drawn
from Washtenaw, Livingstone, and
Jackson counties, Federal authorities
are considering a national system of
such camps to take care, at least, of
the boys of that age in all relief fam-
ilies, and as many others as are nec-
The boys are thought old enough
to. do considerable physical labor, al-
though not as much as the CCC men,
and accordingly will devote at least
a portion of the day, probably the
morning hours, according to Dr. Peet,
in similar work, building roads, clear-
ing camp sites, building animal
shelters and damming streams to
create breeding ponds.
Since the Waterloo project is
scheduled to become a national park,
he added, it will be necessary to build
permanent camping cabins, lodges,
and other facilities, providing plenti-
ful work for the boys of the camp.
Following the morning work, the
boys will spend the afternoon in or-
ganized recreation and educational
programs such as are found in Boy
Scout camps, with some class work.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.--(P) -
A boisterous House today shouted ap-
proval of a cash payment Bonus Bill,
tossing the 1936 battle over the peren-
nial issue into the lap of the Senate.
Even as the measure sped un-
amended through the House, on a
356 to 59 vote - more than enough
to override a veto - efforts to change
its form were in the making at the
other end of the Capitol.
Democratic Senate leaders, seeking
some form that might find Presi-
dential approval, were reported seek-
ing support of veterans for bonus
payment in bonds redeemable in cash
on demand.
Payable Immediately
Chairman Pat Harrison, (Dem.,
Miss.), called a meeting of the Sen
ate Finance Committee Monday t
consider the bonus. The major vet-
erans' organizations are backing the
House bill.
The Vinson-Patman-McCormack
measure passed today provides no
definite method of payment. It would
declare veterans' adjusted service cer-
tificates payable immediately, but
would offer 3 per cent interest until
1945 to former soldiers who refrain
from cashing them.
The tensity of earlier bonus fights
was gone today as the House passed
the bill. Jovial and chatty, membcii

Rep. Carl E. Mapes, (Rep., Mich.),
was the only member of the Michigan
delegation to vote against the bonus.
All other Michigan representatives-
10 Republicans and six Democrats -
voted for the bill.
Packed galleries - in violation of
the rules--joined in a salvo of ap-
plause when Byrns announced the bill
had carried. Officials-of the veterans'
organizations smiled down from the
rear seats in the members' galleries.
National Commander James E. Van
Zandt of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars called the vote a "complete an-
swer to the miserable minority which
has blocked decisive action on this
legislation for years."
After Republicans were beaten
back, 319 to 89, on a final effort to
force payment of the adjusted serv-
ice certificates from relief money,
many of them voted for the bill.
