Truth of Norwegian's Stale
incuts in Defense of
Dr. Cook
FORT WORTH, Texas. Jan. 23.
(By Associated Press.) -Dr.
Frederick A. Cook is a "genius
in the estimation of Capt. Roald
Amundsen, ahdvpo matter what
he may or may not have done in
business, deserves the respect of
the American people for his in
repid explorations. Dr. Cook may
not have discovered the north pole
but Commander R. E. Peary also
may have not, the former having
as good a claim as the latter. Cap-
I tain' 'mundseh, discoverer of the
south pole, said here today,
The Norwegian explorer ap
parently had not intended to speak
of the discredited discoverer of
the north pole, but spoke with
feeling when he jdid touch upon
the subject.
"I don't know whether he de
serves to be in prison or not,"
Amundsen said. "To me he was
always a genius. .When we were
young men together in a Belgian
Antarctic expedition I said that if
any man ever reached the north
pole it would be' Dr. Cook.
In 1909' D.r. Cook came" back
from the. north as the discoverer
of the pole, and I was. among. those
xyho greeted him at Copennagen.
He began Immediately to put the
story of his, discovery, and explor
ations in writing. Later, Com
mander Peary returned with his
claim of discovery and attack on
Dr. Cook's claims. The ultimate
result was disgrace for Dr. Cook.
"I have read Dr. Cook's story
and I have read Peary's. In the
Peary story, I have not found any
thing of consequence- not covered
already by Dr. Cook."
Amgndseh declared that the
evidence that Capt. Donald Mac
MJllan, one of Peary's companions,
gathered in an effort to discredit
Dr. Cook was "of no importance.

Death rate" in Marion, county can be" cut from 25' t6 ; 40

in the opinion of Dr. Walter H. Brown, head of the Child
Health Demonstration here, which, in the past eight months,
has" examined 3799 children in39. communities of the conuty.
. "These 3799 children were tinder 14 years of age," said
Dr.. Brown, as he sat in his private of fice tellirig' the first

"We have just finished studying
the results of 2.D24 of I these Indi
vidual examinations. Of the total,
1,740, or 86 per cent, had one or
more defects and 28 4i or 14 per
cent, were free from defect. One
of the striking facts brought out
was that 90 per cent of the chil
dren of school age had one or
more physical defects, while in the
pre-school age this percentage was
only 72.
. "Children here are not worse
off, probably better, than in most
sections of the country.

"Objectives of the child health
demonstration are these," said
Dr. BroWn. "To help every inter

things about health and disease

are known and practiced t
death rate in this country will
fall from 25 to 40 per cent. Sick
