State Patronage
The family of Horatio J. Abbott,
Democratic National Commiteeman,
was called to his bedside in St. Jo-
seph's Hospital last night where he
lay "very critically ill."
Although Mr. Abbott was in no
"immediate danger" last night, his
physician, Dr. I. D. Loree, expressed
a serious doubt as to his recovery.
Mr. Abbott suffered a paralytic stroke
yesterday afternoon ,which paralyzed
his right side.
His condition took a sudden and
unexpected turn for the worse. He
has been in St. Joseph's Hospital
since Saturday, when he was taken
with a nervous breakdown. At that+
time, nurses at the hospital said they
expected his release "within a couple
of weeks."
Mr. Abbott has been the storm

of the s-ientific method" was urged
y-s 1rday by President Ruthven.
Wishing the Parley "full success
and for each who engages in it the

sight ,"the President issued a state-
ment containing his views on the
Parley and on the way he hopes it
will be conducted.
The religious aspect of the Parley
was emphasized by President Ruth-
yen. "The unity for which we
struggle," he said, "is, according to
science, to be acquired in building
toward God upon a knowledge of
human characteristics, the nature of
the world and the inter-relations of
man and his environment. For this
task," he declared, "each must be
equipped by faith and study."
The Spring Parley, the President
indicated, can well be the medium
of acquisition of this unity. "In your
Parley," he pointed out, "you have an
opportunity to compare values and
discuss with your teachers and with
others some of those personal attain-
ments which escape classroom assign-
