THE MORMXG OREGOMAX, FRIDAY, JULY 28, 1933
IS KILLED IN FALL
Dr. Frank Wynn Drops From
Mount Siyeh Cliff.
BODY ROLLS OVER LEDGE
President of American Alpine
Club Overcome by Exertion
and High Altitude.
GLACIER PARK. Mont.. July 27.
Dr. Frank B. Wynn of Indian
apolis, president of the American
Alpine- club and one of this coun
try's foremost mountain climbers,
was killed today in a 3.00-foot fall
from a cliff near the summit of
Mount Siyeh, one of the highest
peaks in Glacier national park.
According to Dr. H. Goddard, also
of Indianapolis, who was a few
yards behind Dr. Wynn on the trail,
the latter's fall from the narrow
ledge on which the party was cross
ing, followed what appeared to be
an apopletic stroke. Dr. Wynn was
68 years of age and while appar
ently in good health, it is believed
that the 10,000-foot altitude and the
exertion of the climb proved too
much for him.
Dr. Wynn, Silent, Falls.
They had just negotiated an un
usually steep portion of the trail.
Dr. Goddard said, when Dr. Wynn,
who was leading, turiied and- opened
his mouth as if to speak. Then,
without uttering a word, he pitched
forward on the trail. Before Dr.
Goddard could cover the interven
ing distance his body had rolled
over the rooky, ledge and dis
appeared. The remainder of the party made
as rapid progress as possible to
Glacier hotel, where the accident
was reported to government rang
ers and a party was formed to re
cover Dr. Wynn's body. Because of
the inaccessibility of the ledge on
which the body landed, this will be
a slow task.
Difficult Peaks Scaled.
The party which Dr. Wynn was
leading was composed of a dozen of
the most prominent members of the
American, Alpine club. Dr. Wynn
has guided similar parties through
Glacier park for the past eight
years, each year scaling a new
mountain and leaving the club mark
at the summit. In addition to these
expeditions Dr. Wynn had to his
, credit the scaling of the most dif
ficult Alpine peaks.
Mount Siyeh and Mount Saint
Nicholas were the only peaks in the
park which he had never climbed.
Twice before his parties have at
tempted Mount Siyeh but have
failed. It was his hope that this
year would see the club emblem
on its summit. Mrs. Wynn and
their son were among the party in
th,e park although not on the trip
which brought Dr. Wynn's death.

Immediately upon their arrival
from Chicago and before going to
the White House, the strike leaders
had a conference with William H.'

Mr. Johnston then went with them
to the White House. The others who
accompanied them were:
Timothy Healy, president of the

RAILROAD GUARD IS KILLED
Dead Man Identified as Roy E.
Burton, 3 1 Years Old.
SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., July 27.
A telephone message from the
anta Fe depot to the sheriff's of
fice said one of the railroad guards
had been shot and killed and asked
for the coroner.
The dead man was identified as
Roy E. Burton, 31, formerly a deputy
constable at San Diego. He was
employed by the Atchison, Topeka
& Santa Fe Rairway company as
special guard and was patrolling
the west end of the railroad yards.
About 8:40 P. M. six shots we're
heard, but it was more than an
hour before Burton's body was
found lying near the track with
his revolver still clasped in his
hand. Investigation showed that
he had fired three shots.
RAIL LINES DECLARED OPEN
SoutHern Pacific President Says
There Is No Congestion.
That the Southern Pacific company
lines are clear, with trains running

The message was sent by Presi
dent Sproule to presidents of lines

message was the service order of
the interstate commerce commission

by routes most available to ex
pedite its movement and prevent
congestion. This order is mandatory
only when necessary to avoid con
gestion. There is no congestion on our

'and delivery will be expedited and
congestion avoided by routing traffic

How to Get Rid of Deadly
NEW YORK, July 20. (Special.)
Have you a little goldfish fish,
not digger in your' home?
Which same is not the title of a
Broadway unmusical comedy or of
the latest spasm from Tin Pan al
ley. It is a serious inquiry ad
dressed to a suffering population
by the state health commissioner,
Dr. Herman M. Biggs. 'If little cul
ex pipiens, homebred mosquito, is
what's biting you, go get a gold
fish or an oil can. They are the
only known cures for the mosquito
plague. Dr. Biggs says. It's a case
of patronizing the Standard Oil
company or the pet store.
Doctor Is Hot Dogmatic.
The doctor is not dogmatic in ad
vising purchase of a goldfish to
catch and eat mosquito eggs and
Infant mosquitoes before they grow
up and develop augers. Most any
fish will do minnow, tarpon, tuna,
landlocked salmon, squaretail trout
Goldfish are suggested not only be
cause they add to the beauty of the
scenes but because they are so af
fectionate, resembling nothing so
much as an airedale.
All fish are fond of mosquitoes as
hors d'oevres. Choice is optional.
That is the substance of the advice
to tortured citizens on the verge of
losing their religion by Commis
sioner Biggs in No. 17 of a series of
bulletins and health talks.
The mosquito situation, acute now
in the whole eastern region, in
spires advice also of an obviously
practical nature from the New Jer
sey fish and game commission.
Ringnecked pheasants are recom
mended by the commission as one
of the best known mosquito exter
minators. These excellent fowl pur
sue mosquitoes voraciously and con
sume incredible numbers. of them.
Pheasants Kat Insects
Pisiistratus Pifcafilly maintains a
small ringneck pheasant farm near
Forked River, Ocean county, in which
he trains yourrg birds to run down
the vicious mosquitoes of Jersey.
Nearby the state fish and game com
mission maintains a pheasant farm,
which benefits from Mr. Pifcafilly's
advice and experience. Both the
state commission and Mr. Pifcafilly
recommended that every household
have at least half a dozen ringneck
pheasants. Any one carrying
pheasant on his wrist as he goes to
work is immune from annoyance.
Health bulletins stated 60 varie
ties of the cirlex pipiens were at
large and getting larger. Dr. Alvah
H. Doty, former health officer of
the Port of New York, one of . the
biggest - mosquito -sharps of the
country "who has virtually lived
with them for, years, says flat:
"While mosquitoes are essentially
vegetarian, the females, the only
ones which bite, crave blood."
Mr. Pifcafilly, over in New Jer
sey, says he knows this is true, for
on one occasion, while motorcycling
over the marshes between Newark
and Jersey City, he was attacked by
a small band of she mosquitoes. He
was unarmed and would have been
devoured had he not been saved by
a large band of male mosquitoes,
wlur seemed to recognize him as the
owner of gardens at Forked River,
where they had fed many times.
' Woman Attacked In Bath Tab.
Throughout New Jersey . the
plague is so bad nowadays the in
habitants smell like a tar roof from
citronella and other dope. Mr. Pif
cafilly said it was impossible to
bathe, since it would mean washing
off the dope and exposing the body
to terrible attacks. A woman named
Rachael Prunesmiller, of Kearny, N.
J., was thus attacked in a bath tub.
People are buying canopy tents from
the. one time united States army
stock because the good heavy khaki
is the only thing that begins to turn
the borer of a Jersey mosquito.
These tents are simply erected over
beds, mosquito bars even of wire
being utterly useless.
