operation performed on Lucien Muratore
was an entire success and his recovery
should be uninterrupted," it was de
clared this afternoon, following1 an oper
ation performed on the ' leading tenor
of the Chicago Opera company for acute
appendicitis. The operation began at 1
o'clock and was concluded just one hour
later.
Physicians In attendance on the singer
declared If the operation had been de
layed three or four hours the results
would have been serious. Muratore's
appendix was ' found to be greatly in
flamed.
Muratore was accompanied to the hos
pital by his wife. Ltna Cavallerl, and
Harold McCormick. the Chicago - millionaire,
The operation was performed by Dr.
C F. A. Locke.
It was said if all goes well with the
