HITLER WAS INJURED
Bomb Blast Punctured His Eardrums WALKED LIKE DRUNKEN MAN Rec. 1.30 a.m. LONDON, July 29. Professor Carl von Eicken, Germany's leading nose and throat specialist who saved Hitler's voice in 1935, told the Daily Express correspondent in Berlin thit after a bomb attack last- July Hitler walked like a drunken man. Bomb blast perforated Hitler's eardrums and injured his inner ear, thus destroying his sense of balance which, in addition to nervous shock created giddiness.
Someone had to support Hitler every time he went out, otherwise he would have fallen. After the attack he was afraid to go out in the dai' time. Von Eicken operated on Hitler in 1935 and removed a polypus from a vocal chord.
