investigation by the engineers of the

been made on an experimental track
at Woolwich, in which the gauge,

Reported Proposal From Brit
KRASSIN PLANS NEW TRIP
Charges of a- serious nature have
been brought against the Pierce
Sanatorium for disabled veterans, lo
cated at Hillsdale, by L. B. Baketel,
president of the Portland Association
of Fathers of Soldiers and Sailors of
the U. S. A., in a letter to the U. S.
Public Health Service.
The most serious charges are that
meat which was served the 44 sol
dier patients in the institution was
unfit for human consumption; that
sanitary conditions are poor; that the
buildings are inadequately protected
against fire, and that the care given
the patients does not correspond to
the expense involved to the govern
ment. Dr. Edward Allen Pierce, owner and
medical director of the Pierce Sana
torium, last night branded the report
as "absolutely false in part and gross
ly exaggerated in every particular."
Further than that, he immediately
announced his determination to have
a thorough and complete investigation
of the Baketel charges. He at once
forwarded the following telegram re
questing investigation to Hugh De
Valin, United States public health
eervice. Seattle, Wash., who, as super
visor, has jurisdiction over this dis
trict:. "Charges against Pierce Sanatorium
.have-'becn given newspaper-publicity.
In justice to all concerned I ask. that
a public health service officer con
versant with tuberculosis hospitals be
cent hero immediately to conduct
"I remember the meat episode men
tioned in the letter," said .Dr. Pierce.
"It was an unfortunate occurrence
that happened while our regular chef
was away. The meat was to have
fcecn served cold. During the time
that -it was being prepared a small
part of the meat became spoiled and
was sent up through carelessness to
the patients by the assistant chef.
This was something that could not
have happened had our regular chef
been there. As it was the circum
etance was investigated immediately.'
Acts and reports of government
health officers who have been in
touch with the sanatorium were also
cited as disproving the criticisms
made public in the letter.
Mr. Baketel states that charges he
makes are based upon personal in
vestigations that he made on June 30.
His letter to the United States public
health service, directed to Major
.Kichey l. Waugh, of Portland, fol
lows in part:
Baketel Makes Charges.
"Kindly permit me to make the fol
lowing report to you regarding con
ditions as I understand them to exist
at the Pierce sanatorium, where today
there are 44 rormer servjee men suf
fering from tuberculosis, who are
there by the suffrage of the govern
ment and for each of whom the gov
i ernment is paying the Pierce sanato
rium $4 per day.
"Some weeks ago I received word
that the food served the soldiers was
not fit for humans. At the time I
' doubted the statement. Just a few'
(lays ago. however, some meat was
brought to me which had been taken
; from the patients' table. The meat
was turned over to a local meat in
spector who said that if it was con
sumed by humans it probably would
not harm them, but he would not eat
It unless starving or blindfolded.
"On June 30 I visited the sanato
rium to learn first hand what condi
tions really are. They could be worse,
lint not much. From a standpoint of
sanitation I doubt if there is another
institution in Oregon its equal. v
"Service for the patients is not'what
one has the right to expect for 4
per day. The private patients, of whom
there are 10, and who are charged
$6 per day, receive the same treat
ment as the former service men. If
the nurses would talk, their story, I
understand, would be the same thing.
'The patients want to complain, but
do not dare. I am informed that
whenever a patient does complain
way Is found to rid the institution of
that particular person.
"There is a decided lack. of -needed
and necessary equipment. But one bed
in the entire institution has rubber
roller casters. When the other beds
are moved they must be picked up
and carried, patient and all. The
building is a fire trap of the worst
kind without fire protection. There
are a few fire extinguishers, but they
would amount to nothing. ,If the
building, which was formerly a sum
mer residence, should catch fire ii
the center of it, the patients, most
of whom are in bed. would be ab
solutely cut off as there is no possible
means of escape. They would be like
. rats in a trap. Is it for such as this
' that the government of the United
States pays $4 per day for each man?
Other Charge Possible.
"This is a rough sketch of the con
ditions as I have found them. There
is more to be said, but this
shoiuld be sufficient. The Association
of Fathers of Soldiers and Sailors of
the u. S. A. has taken up the cause
of these boys in dead earnest. We
propose to see it through and if noth-
, ing else will do, we shall demand
grand jury investigation with its ac
companying publicity. These boys
must be given clean, wholesome food
and have sanitary surroundings. It
is a demand we have a right to make.

you give this complaint every pos
