1 News at a Glancej
Leonard ntrottner, seventy-six years old,
n bruihmaker, of 707 North Second street,
Philadelphia, and Mrs. Matilda WeldmaU
seventy-two years old a widow, formerly of
Morrtstown, Pa., were married thlB morning
by Recorder Qlen O. Stackhouse In Camden.
It wsb the end of a month's courtship.
A month ago Mrs. Weldman, selling shoe
strings to the retail trade, was passing
Strottner's home. Strottner was standing
out In front HUrveylng his home when ho
caught the little woman's eye.
"I know a good woman when I see one,"
Strottner said today. "I saw she was the
woman I wanted. I said to her: 'Como In
nnd look my piece over. If you like It, we
will get married and you can stay.' She
camo In and looked all around and liked
tho place. She liked me, too. So we de
cided we would get married.
"We didn't believe In long engagements.
Besides we are getting too old to waste
any time courting. You know, 1 like good,
hot grub. I like my washing clean and 1
llko a woman's companionship."
When Recorder Stackhouse reached the
"love, honor and obey" pronouncement of
the ceremony, Strottnor Interrupted.
"Obey?" he questioned.
"Yes, obey," repeated the recorder.
"Oh, yes, yes, yes," said Mrs. Weldman,
Strottner had no wedding ring. "Only
young people need wedding rings," he ex
plained. When the bond had been healed, the
man and his little blue-eyed bride, both
their faces beaming happiness, went back
to live In the brushmaker's house. Their
honeymoon trip wan u rldo on the ferry to
Philadelphia; significantly, the Journey was
toward the West. i
NO TIME TO EXAMINE
SCHOOL CHILDREN FOR
Medical Inspector Finds Plan
Impracticable and Says Prom
ised Results Would Be
DOCTOR CORNELL'S VIEWS
Thyslcal examination of school children
before the opening of school will be Im
possible In Philadelphia. Tho examina
tions would take so long that the term
would have to be delayed more than a
month and the examinations would cost the
city more than they would bo worth.
These aro the opinions of Dr. Walter S.
Cornell, chief medical Inspector of the pub
lic schools, on tho suggestion of Dr. Samuel
a, Dixon, State Health Commissioner, that
tho school children be examined for symp
toms of Infantile paralysis before they are
"Plans to examine tho children." said
Doctor Cornell, "cannot be crltlclzod ex
cept on tho ground of the time required
for the examinations compared with the
results possible It would take a month
and would cost 33000.
There are 160,000 children In the ele
mentary schools. Sixty physicians, exam
ining 3B00 children and spending thirty
seconds In examining each one, would re
quire a month to finish the work.
"Speaking ot contagious diseases gen
erally, without reference to Infantile pa
ralysis, we tried this plan In the public
schools In tbe fall of 1012 and abandoned
It because more than a month was con
sumed In .miscellaneous activities which
yielded little or nothing. Under our pres
ent system, which Includes the exclusion
from the schools of children with sore
throat, we have materially cut down tha
prevalence of contagious diseases.
"Our methods, combined with those of
Doctor Cairns, have reduced the prevalence
ot disease In Philadelphia so that the city
has1 the lowest percentage or scarlet rever
of the ten largest cities of the country. We
nre next to lowest In prevalence of diph
theria. Before 1913 there were 3600 cases
of diphtheria every year. We have reduced
the number to an average of !000 cases,
while the'populatlon probably has Increased
a third. In 191B there were 1073 cases of
scarlet fever and twcnty-clght deaths.
"In 1916 we developed and examined
27,083 cultures taken from the throat nt
public school children suspected of having
disease and 1235 cultures from pupils In
tho parochial schools. That Is the work
we do under our present system."
Dr. A, A, Cairns, chief medical Inspector
of the health department, said that he has
been making examinations oi parocmai
school children for the last four years.
Doctor Cairns Is In charge of ninety paro
chial schools and six private schools, with a
total enrollment of 69,000 children.
KM1CROENCY AID NEEDS 13009
An appeal for 33000 to care for the vic
tims ot Infantile paralysis was issued thla

Rev. R. C. Zartman's Charge
Against Rev. T. Gray Bolton
The congregation of tho Hope Piesby
tcrlan Church, Thirty-third nnd Wharton
streets. Is up In arms today over the charges
made by the Rev. Rufus C. Kartman, of
the Heidelberg Reformed Church, who yes
terday termed their pastor, J. (Iray Uolton,
a politician and a corrupt gangster. They
ar busy making 'sweeping denials In be
half of Doctor DrUton, who ot tho present
time Is taking a vacation at tljs Crawford
House, While Mountains, New ltampshlre
John Raster, an attorney with offices nt
Fourth and Pine streets, who Is the super
intendent of the Hope Presbyteilan Church,
was one of tho chief defenders. Mr. Daxter
"Dr. Uolton, Is a conscientious nnd un
right man, and I know that he did not do
tho things that Dr. Zartman ullogcs. He
may have expressed his personul political
opinion at Borne time or other and 1 know
that he Is a close personal friend of Sena
tor Penrose. Jealously Is the cause of 1Mb
attack. Doctor Uolton. ou know, holds
some Important positions In the church."
Mrs. Richard Firth, for many years n
Sunday school teacher, and soveral other
members of the church were strong In
their denunciations of Doctor Zartman and
In support of Doctor Bolton.
The trouble arose yesterday at the regu
lar weekly meeting of the Ministerial As
Boclation of tho Reformed Church, when
It was announced that Doctor Uolton would
address the members of tho association
next week. Doctor Zartman, who was
presiding, made a strenuous objection to
the Presbyterian clergyman, asserting that
he was a politician as' well as a minister
nnd a corrupt gangster. He offered to
prove hla assertions by producing several
letters written by Doctor Uolton. Ho
closed his remarks with the statement that
he would leave tho meeting If Doctor
Uolton was to speak.

continued several months ago when the
court closed tho only licensed bar at the
old French Hotel, was fired today at the
opening of tho September term of the Salem
County Court, at Salem.
An application for an Inn and tavern
license and two applications for wholesale
licenses here were filed.
Harry II. Oreen, , proprietor of a new
$30,000 brick hotel, called the Colonial, ap
piled for an Inn and tavern license. He
Is said to be backed by the Bavarian Brew
ing Company, of Wilmington, Del.
The applicants for wholesale licenses are
Alphlne I.ucan and Joseph Jordan. Drya
have found an .ally (n the -Union Brewery
vvorks, of Wilmington, now on strike, who
liavo declared their Intention of doing
eveiythlng in their power to prevent Oreen
from getting his license, because of his re--ported
backing by the Bavarian Browing
Company, with which the Union men aro at
Judge E. C. Waddlngton set Friday as
tho date for tho filing of jemonstrances
pgalnst the license applicants. The hear

will probably come up a week later.
Attorneys J. Forman Slnnlckaon, former
prosecutor of tho county, and S. Russn

expect to marshal a big delegation to swoop
down upon the courthouse at Salem and
empnaticauy back up the remonstrance
against the granting of any licenses hem.
As a trump card, the drys will play strong
on the Issue that the permanent camp-meet-Ing
established here sovoral months ago
by tho Ministerial Association Is a legal
barrier to the granting of liquor license,
the New Jersoy Htate law providing that no
new licenses shall be granted for places
within a n-dius ot one mile of a camp-meeting
Several have tried recently to get the
much-prized licenses, because of their prom
ise of big revenue to such lucky holder.
