The terrific heat of a merciless sua
beating down on the unprotected beads
of the school children who remained tn
the middle of the hot parade ground at
the public school play festival at Fort.
Omaha yesterday afternoon for three and
a half hours led to Innumerable fainting
spells of llttlo girls who could not stand
the constant exposure. Over three scor
suffered collapse and of these over fifty
were removed to the fort emergency hos
pital for relief trents-.nt before they
could be carried to their homes In auto
mobiles. None of the cases were serious
although one or twoo f the lassies ex
perienced brief heart troubles.
Before 4 o'clock the sun had played
havoc with many of the girls. A dozen
were taken to tho hospital and It waa
necessary that doctors patrol, the Ulnea
of girls to watch for symptoms of sun
stroke. The heat waa deadly. Even
grown men were affected, and it is &
wonder that more of the little tots, ex
posed as they were, did not suffer mor
severely. The participating school chil
dren were not avowed to break their
lines, which wre rormea nnv m. ma

Dr. Mlltenberger and Sergeant Cox were
In charge of the emergency hospital and

Among those who were carried to tha
hospital were: Mrs. Christina. Lafayette,
whose two little girls were In the pro

The Bralley and Dorrance amhutanc
carried twenty-six little tota from th
field to their homes and private auto
mobiles carried many others.
Many of the girls dropped right after
the Maypole dance, which waa the las
event on the program. During this danca
the faces of the glrla burned red an
big drops of perspiration trickled down
their sun-burned cheeks. Many were o
worn and fatigued that they missed their
step and several stumbled off the flelit
and dropped flat beneath the shade treea
along the edges of the parade ground.
Aid on the Field.
Dr. C. H, Ross, who was actively n
gaged on the field In aiding the chil
dren, declared that the pasea were really
serious and that on many occasions th
ailment was heat prostration. He as
serted that he found that the prostra
tions followed the exertion and excite
ment of the drills. He said that none;
of the cases would prove fatal, but were)
nevertheless very serious.
R. L. Cams, physlcat director of thai
public schools, remained at the Fort hos

to her home. He declared that all were)
able to be taken home and were on tha
way to rapid recovery. He expressed
