Petrograd Soon
To Be Deserted,
Figures Show
Berlin, Nov. 10. Petrograd will
soon ' be a deserted city, a mere
memory of the past like Troy or
Carthage, according to figures in
the Deutsche Medizinische Woch
enschrift. The death rate in peace
time in Petrograd was far from
low; in 1914 it was 22.5 for each
1000 population. In 1916 the fig
ures increased to 23.5, in 1918 to
43.0 and in 1919, 74.9 persons died
of every 1000 residents.
If the rate of 74.9 is really 25 to
30 per cent below the truth, as re
liable medical reports- indicate, the
death; rate in Petrograd has reach
ed the appalling ratio of 100 per
sons of every thousand, or 10 per
cent. ,
In Berlin the death rate is 13.6,
In London 9.5 in Stockholm if and
in Amsterdam 8.4 of every 1000.
According to this, Petrograd's
death rate is seven times that of
Berlin and ten times that of Lon
don. Hand in hand with this stead
ily increasing death rate is an ex
traordinary decrease in the birth
rale, which has dropped from 20.4
births for each thousand in the
year 1914 to 13 to the thousand in
1919. You can figure for yourself
how long it will be, at this rate,
until Petrograd is a deserted city.
Parish House
In Ohio City
Is Dynamited
Bomb Destroys Porch
On Home of Priest
Appointed Over Pro
test of Charges
Struthers, Ohio, Nov. 10. The
parish house of Holy Trinity
Czecho-Slovak Catholic church was
dynamited early today, the porch
being blown off. No one was in
jured. The house is occupied by
Rev. John Frena, recently installed
priest, against whose appointment
a protest was made by members of
the church who for a time main
tained an armed guard to prevent
his taking possession.
Protesting members of the
church declared that the former
pastor. Rev. Joseph Zalibara, was
removed because he urged auton
omy for the Slovaks and thai ,ev.
Frena was installed because he fa
voted the Czecho-Slovakian union.
Officials cf the church organization
in Cleveland, however, denied any
political motive in the church.
Rattles and

Lansing, Mich., Nov. 10. Infants

as athletic appartus by the Michi
gan state boxing commisison. Ap
plication for a "bale of baby rat
tles" was made by Superintendent
Montgomery of the state school for
ophans and abandoned qhildren at
Cold Water. ,
Among the commission's duties
is the distribution to schools of
athletic goods purchased with a
"fund drawn from boxing bouts in
the state. .
The requisition was the first to
include athletic equipment for
such young athletes but Chairman
Biggers was quick to decide "that
rattles could be so classed.
Over Production
of Gasoline In
States Charged
Washington, Nov. 10 "Over
production" in the United States
is the reason assigned by British
oil companies for an unexpected
reduction of six cents a gallon in
the price of gasoline in Great Bri
tain After a sudden increase of 14
cents a gallon in August, accord
ing to advices from the American
chamber of Commerce in London
British consumers, however,
chamber reported, attributed
slump to the investigation of
