   Enforcement agents under the direction of Chief Raymond A. TASTOR on Monday night, raided POPP'S Inn and seized three half-barrels of alleged beer.
   The same evening Chief TASTOR and his men raided the Point Pleasant Hotel, seizing a half barrel of alleged beer, and a place at 665 West Avenue, where four barrels of alleged beer were taken.
   Frank CURLEY, arrested as proprietor of the Point Pleasant place, yesterday appeared before Commissioner Cyrus W. PHILLIPS and posted $1,000 bail pending consideration of his case by the Grand Jury.
   Walenty TOMCZAK, held as proprietor of the West Avenue place, failed to appear before Commissioner ZIMMERMAN. His attorney Adam FELERSKI, promised to have TOMCZAK come before the commissioner tomorrow.

   Allsen HOLMES, 23, and Mabel HUSA, 20, girl communists serving a sentence in the Monroe County Penitentiary on conviction of desecrating the American flag, expect to be free today.
   Supreme Court Justice Eli PARSONIUS, sitting in Elmira, yesterday granted them right to appeal their case and ordered them released in $500 bail each pending argument of the appeal before Chemung County Judge Bertram L. NEWMAN in Elmira. The time was not set.
   Following granting of the appeal, Bertram T. BAKER, attorney retained by the International Labor Lefense[sic] to represent the girls, came to Rochester and obtained their signatures to bail bonds.
   It is possible that there may be some slight delay because of a technicality. When the bonds were signed yesterday in the presence of a notary public, it was impossible because of the lateness of the hour to obtain a certification from County Clerk John H. LAW that the notary was fully authorized.
   This technicality is not always insisted on but it is believed that even if the judge should ask that it be carried out arrangements may be completed permitting release of the girls by late afternoon. It will be necessary for the judge to review the bonds and sign release papers before the penitentiary can give them up.
   The appeal is from a three-months sentence imposed on the two girls by Justice of Peace William WESTBROOK of VanEtten, where the pair were directors of a communist children's camp. It was charged that they refused to fly an American flag over the camp and that after one was placed there by non-members they tore it down and trampled on it.
   Defense charges are that residents of VanEtten were so bitter that a fair trial was impossible. It was pointed out that fifteen deputy sheriffs and ten state troopers were needed to keep the crowd in check the night the girls were arrested.
   Meanwhile a big celebration is being planned for Sunday night in New York, when the Misses HOLMES and HUSA are scheduled to be speakers at a communist mass meeting.
   Attorney Manual D. GOLDMAN of this city said last night that he had interviewed the girls on behalf of the Civil Liberties Union; which had asked him to enter the case as their legal representative. He said he was not sure that he would take the case for the Union, but that if he does, he immediately will apply for a new trial and change of venue.

   Recognition in "Who's Who in America," a roster of Professional, scientific and industrial men and women of the United States, has been accorded 108 Rochesterians, 20 of whom are listed for the first time as living in this city, in the 1930-31 edition.
   This marks an increase of 10 over the number in the publication two years ago. Ten Rochester names were dropped, through death or other causes.
   Sketches of 29,704 men and women are included in the latest publication, an increase of 899 over the preceding edition, and 3,398 new names were added in the past two years, the publishers announce.

Lighted Instruments To Explore Human Body Made Here For World

   In a modest top floor factory in North Water Streets, the Electro Surgical Instrument Company pioneers for surgery, manufacturing instruments cunningly lighted to enable the physician to explore the passages of the human body.
   Col. Thorvaid MAIJGREN, president of the company, has been associated with the company for the past 26 years and is the directing force in the unique organization. Quiet, unassuming, with long, sensitive fingers, he is business executive, salesmen and inventor.
                    Fill Specific Needs
   Surgeons in the four corners of the world present to him their demands for instruments to fill a specific needs. Whenever the plan is feasible, Colonel MAIJGREN attacks the problem as a practical man and in due time delivers up the instrument.
   The history of the development of the surgical lamp is the history of the Electro Surgical Company. It is also the history of modern medicine, for before its invention, physicians had to rely on the head mirror, whose reflected light was valuable only in making diagnosis of the surface or cavity sufficiently large to allow a superficial examination.
   It was in 1898 that an electrician named PRESTON called on Rochester physicians with a lamp for an eurthroscope. Dr. Henry KOCH, leading surgeon here, informed the salesman the medical profession had little need of his lamp, but would welcome some lamp of limited size which gave out little heat.
                     Makes First Surgical Lamp
   PRESTON promised to try, and after some experimentation returned with a small flat lamp measuring about eight millimeters, three millimeters in width, and a millimeter and a half in thickness. The lamp was attached to an instrument designed by Dr. KOCH and was used successfully. It was the first surgical lamp and electrically lighted surgical instrument made in America.
   Establishment of the company followed in 1899, the sponsors continuing to enlist the full co-operation of the medical profession in the design and utility of the instruments. Bronchoscopes and oesophagoscopes, the latter for use in the food canal to the stomach, have proved invaluable in diagnostic and operative work.
   A new and unusual instrument is the fonofaryngoskop, constructed in co-operation with Dr. G. Oscar RUSSELL as part of a scientific study instituted by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. By means of this instrument it is possible to see the actual operation of the vocal chords, and to show the physiological cause of voice quality in singing.
                       Smallest Lights Here
   A journey through the factory rooms of the company is a revelation to the casual visitor, in its introduction of the smallest electric lamps made in the world. The smallest are not more than a quarter-inch long.
   Each is well made, with an especially prepared tungsten filament, requiring the finest workmanship in its construction. The blowing of the bulb because of its minute size and the delicate nature of the filament, demands much skill. The bulbs are welded to tiny glass tubes after which special pumps are used to provide a high vacuum, which assures a "cold light" and makes them so valuable to the physician.
   Assembly of the bulbs into lights and adjustment of these lamps into the surgical instruments necessitates careful and adept fingers. Adjustment of the five, six or eight tiny lenses that go into the surgical telescopes is also a delicate operation.

   A fall against a bookcase and another fall in the cellar of his home last night sent Michael GILHOOLY, 60, of 39 Lennox Street, to St. Mary's Hospital with a possibly fractured skull and severe head lacerations, and launched police on an investigation of the possibility of foul play.
   Two newsboys who were collecting for the delivery of a newspaper went to the GILHOOLY home shortly after 8, and found the front door open. When no one responded to their repeated ringing of the doorbell, they walked inside and found blood on the floor and the shattered glass door of a bookcase.
   The boys hurried from the house and told Policeman A. Lowell POWERS what they had seen. POWERS went to the house, and after a search found GILHOOLY unconscious on the cellar floor and bleeding from deep gashes in his head. An ambulance was summoned and GILHOOLY was taken to the hospital.
   After GILHOOLY revived, he was questioned by police but could not recall falling, although he is said to have stated that he had been alone in the house, and had not been the victim of an attack. Police reported that he had been drinking and said there was little doubt that he had fallen.

   Batavia, Aug. 26 - Robert HALE of East Alexander and Paul F. FEITSHANS of Bethany, both 17, asked for examinations when arraigned on first-degree robbery charges before Justice Maurice NOLAN at Bethany. The court granted their requests and set the cases down for Tuesday, Sept. 2.
   The youths are alleged to have robbed the general store at Bethany Center Saturday night, Aug. 16, and to have fled with $50 in cash. FEITSHANS confessed to holding up the store proprietor, Harry WO__, with a revolver, while HALE kept watch outside, officials say.
   Funeral services for George SKINNER, 73, who died Monday night at his home in Hilton, will be conducted at his home tomorrow afternoon at 2:30. Rev. R. M. TRAVER of Hilton will officiate. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery, Rochester.
   Mr. SKINNER leaves a daughter, Mrs. Alice PFARIER of Hilton; a son, Charles SKINNER of Hilton; four grandchildren, and four brothers, William SKINNER of St. Louis, Faulding SKINNER of Hilton, Louis SKINNER of Indianapolis and Frank SKINNER of Rochester.
    Authorities at Clayton, N. Y., yesterday continued dragging the waters of the St. Lawrence River for the body of Robert BRAY, 9, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. BRAY of Rochester.
   The boy has been missing since last Thursday, when he last was seen watching the loading of a boat at the Clayton docks. At first it was believed he might have become a stowaway on the boat, but Canadian authorities yesterday advised that the Bray boy was not on board the boat when it docked at a Canadian port.
   Utica, Aug. 26 - The number of dead in an accident in which M. W. EASTON of Rochester was involved last Friday night was increased to two tonight when Stanley H. BOWEN, 23, of Chadwicks, N. Y., died at the Sampson Hospital in this city.
   BOWEN had remained in a state of coma since his removal on Sunday from the Oneida Hospital to the hospital here for an operation in an attempt to save his life.
   Miss Helen DOUGHERTY, 16, of Fayetteville, was killed instantly in the crash. Both the girls and BOWEN were passengers in a car, operated by her brother, Jesse DOUGHERTY, which was sideswiped near Oneida by a rack on the truck operated by John VAN der MEYER of 1105 East Genesee Street, Syracuse. The collision caused DOUGHERTY to swing in the direction of the curb and then back into the path of EASTON'S car, traveling in the opposite direction.
   Authorities of the County Home last night were seeking relatives of Wilbur TAYLOR, 73, who died yesterday at the County Hospital. he had been an inmate of the County Home for several years. No funeral arrangements have been made.

Rubber Leaves Car's Wheel, Upsets Baby Carriage
   An 8-weeks-old baby was injured late yesterday afternoon when a tire came off an automobile, rolled up over the curb onto the sidewalk at Jay and Lisbon Streets, and knocked over the carriage in which the infant was sleeping.
   According to police, Floyd HIRSCH, 19, of 32 Whitmore Street, was driving a coupe east in Jay Street when at Libson[sic] Street one of the front tires came off the wheel. Rolling along with unabated speed the tire bounced over the curb and into the baby carriage, upsetting it and dumping the baby onto the walk.
   The child, Donald WEGMAN of 86 Lisbon Street not only got what was probably the most rude awakening of its thus far short existence but sustained a severe bruise of the head. He was attended by the family physician.
   Although HIRSCH only possessed a learner's permit to drive a car, police reported he was accompanied by a licensed operator.

   With relatives unable to substantiate their charges that boys had deliberately built a bonfire about, James WRIGHT, 69, of 139 Front Street, while he was asleep in a yard, caused him to suffer fatal burns, Coroner Richard A. LEONARDO last night accepted the report of the police that the burning of WRIGHT was accidental, and issued a certificate of death to that effect.
   WRIGHT was badly burned on the afternoon of Aug. 18 while he was sleeping in a yard in the rear of 532 State Street. After his death Monday at the General Hospital, relatives asserted that boys had piled leaves about the sleeping man and set fire to them.
   Police reported at the time that WRIGHT was intoxicated when he went to sleep in the yard. They said he was accidentally burned, although they did not learn how the fire started.
