Surroundings That Were Once
Familiar Now Strange to
S. Chandler Rogers.
Trk-k Known Only In Marine Corp
Fall I'nnotlwd by n-Mrmtwr.
Auto Ride Like Awakening
to World of Future.
SEATTLE. Wash.. Oct. 31. (Special.)
With his every wn keyed to the
highest pitch, his face aglow, eyes
aperkllns; and every faaulty and force
of mind and body alert. & Chandler
Rogers, the Providence Hospital double-Identity
patient, took his first auto
mobile ride, accompanied by his nurse.
Miss Baker, and a member of the de
partment of psychology of the I nlver
tty of Washington, today. When It
ws over. Itoicers. sfter undergoing a
rlsld test at the ofnes of th United
Ftatea marine recruitms smtlon. re
turned 10 the hospltnl to relate with
all the eagerness of a school boy his
novel experiences.
Iurln the flrst IS mlnutee of his
two-hour rule. Rocer rndesvored to
find something In ttie landscape to re
mind him of his lost life as Oeortte
Kelly. Tnlted States marine, and later
millhand. a year and a half of which
he had spent in and about this city.
But the effort was futile. Then he
turned attention to th automobile.
Here he found many things to ex
cite his wonder. The frequent sound
tng of the horn puzzled him, as to Its
origin and purposes
Marvels Are Maay.
"Where does that rol. come from!"
he asked, a look of wonder on his face.
-Every time we go by something I
hear It."
"It's all very new snd strange to
ne." he said. "I have been told many
things by people who have talked to
me at the hospital. Sometimes I
thought they were making fun of me."
So sincere, so genuine and so hearty
was Rogers In everything he saw. that
no mistake could be made as to the
man's utter snd complete absence of
sense of knowledge of the life of today.
Rogers was sent through the open door
of the United States msrlne recruit
ing ststlon In First avenue Huth and
Main street. Here a stage setting hsd
been provided In the hope thst Rogers
would be brought bach to his former
life by a vision of men and scenes with
which he was long associated.
OI4 Cesamaads Leae Welgat.
Officers. Sergeants and Corporals In
Jfw attire, guns and swords snd all
the Naval paraphernalia were provid
ed when Rogers. Ignorant of where he
ws golrr. entered the room. Rogers
paused. His brows knitted, the old ex
pression of stolid, unknowing, of abso
lute and utter Ignorance of where he
was or what wss expected of him,
overspread his countenence.
Kvery possible test was tried by the
officers and others. A gun was placed
In his hsnds and he was gruffly com
manded to stand at "attention." Awk
wardly be han.lled the weapon. The
order was shouted at him again, but
the words were without meaning.
Then the officer. Lieutenant H. M.
Fmlth. U. S. M. C took the weapon,
examined It as one Inspecting- a eqund
of marines, and flung It hack at htm
In regulation style and manner. But
not a muscle moved and Rogers nojd
looking blankly at his InqJisitor.
"Had this roan any recollection of
even a dy cr a week on a battleship."
explalnrd Untenant Smith, "his hands
would have riwu to receive the rifle,
po tbor.K KO -as every ret that his
esse is slmV. astontshlnR."
Rogers underwent sn ordeal lasting
half an hour. He wss stripped and
measured and a record taken to be for
wsrJed to the Navy Department nt
Washington, where a probe Is under
wsy for his record. Finally, his finger
prints were taken and these will also
be forwarded, so complete Is the work
of tracing lingers- or Kelly's record.
