Police Hustled Him Out and Sanitary
Forces Took Charge.

"He walked right in, turned right around and walked right out again."

A young man, who later gave his name as Oran Cain, entered police headquarters yesterday afternoon and made inquiry for a doctor.

"What's the matter with you?" innocently inquired Lieutenant Michael J. Kennedy.

"Smallpox!" shouted a policeman.

Then several patrolomen scooted out a rear door. The lieutenant backed away and directed the caller to the emergency hospital. Cain was promptly sent to the pest house, and both the police station and emergency hospital were thoroughly fumigated.
