After a tribute to Colorado and Its

"After one hundred years given 'to
cutting their own forests, corralling
their water powers and despoiling
their coal treasures, our Eastern
brothers are especially vigorous in
demanding that the national govern
ment stop the waste and vandalism
of the West. It Is a survival of the
old Yankee spirit which a generation
ago originated Indian societies for the
protection and reformation and salva

ing Romola and their Bible, they
prayed 'poor Lo' might be saved from
the rapacity and cruelty of the front

that George Chavez, the aviator, who

not only charges the physician with
performing an operation that caused
the girl's death, but shows that Dr.
Thompson knew 10 days before her
death that she could not survive and
that he made preparations for the
disposition ot tho body several days
before death occurred.
Miss Messerschmldt's confession
was obtained after it had been de
spaired of. She broke down wheu

now dead, and the confession fol

Paul Parker for the girl's condition,
according to the police. Parker Is
kept under surveillance.
Tile police have as yet been una
ble to locate Willie Saack, assistant
to the accused physician, who will
be an important witness if he is not
made an accessory to the crime. A
man answering his description is be
ing held by the police at Everett.
Wash., pending final Identification.
Parker was examined today by
District Attorney Flckert and detec
