Effectiveness Proved in Discus
sion on Rehabilitation of
Human War Wreckage
PHILADELPHIANS TAKE PART
By the Associated Press
Atlantic City, June 17. Philadel
phlans taking n leading part today in
a symposium of the American Surgical
Association on rehabilitation of human
wreckage of war learned that; Amer
ican procedure is fully nbreast of
the most advanced practice ii Europe.
Sir Robert Jones, of Liverpool, and
Colonel Anton De Page, of the Belgian
medical corps, participated in the dis
cussion. Dr. Robert G. Le Conte reported
upon results attending the delayed or
late extraction of Intro-thoracic pro-
jcctilcs, while Dr. ..Charles H. Frazicr
discussed surgical problems encountered
in the reconstruction of peripheral nerve
injuries. Salvage of the handby plastic
reconstruction was the topic of Dr.
John B. Roberts, also of Philadelphia.
Doctor Muskowitz. of New York,
snid nature wns n wonderful ally in
operative cases of chronic empyema
where special care was bestowed upon
the sterilization of the wound.
Blood Tests in Pneumonja
Dr. Solomon Soils Cohen, of Phil
adelphia, in describing before the As
sociation of American Physicians i new
method for testing pneumonia im
mnnltv bv means of the "whole blood,
declared the bactericidal action of the
latter may readily be measured and
that it is a far more sensitive indicator
of Immunity to pneumococcal infec
tion that the agglutination test; non
pathogenic organisms arc killed by the
whole blood which possesses bacterici
dal properties wanting after coagula
Dr. C. O. Bass said analysis of
blood examination of more than 30,000
people living in Mississippi, in the
most malarious regions of the United
States showed malaria much more prev
alent in children thnn in adults. The
highest point is readied at seven years.
The greater relative frequency of ma
laria in children is indicated by the
fact that more than 50 per cent of all
the malaria found was in persons under
twenty years of age.
Dr. Alfred Stengel reported excel
lent results attained in the treatment
of eight cases of lobar pneumonia by
Intravenous injections of serum from
recently recovered cases of pneumonia.
Trench Fover'a Persistence
Little has been said' thus far, Dr.
It. D. Rudolf told the convention, about
a chronic form of trench fever, which
may last for months and even years,
with a great tendency to develop into
nu acute attack if the patient under
goes any strain due to hard work,
physical or mental, producing pains
in various parts of the body, anemia
and heart disturbances. Many erro
neously diagnosed affections really are
trench fever still lurking in the system
of ex-fighting men and which may stay
with them Indefinitely.
The, suggestion of Dr. Simon Flexner,
head of the Rockefeller Institute, in his
annual address last night, that public
officials who fail to keep streets clean
and enforce health laws in large cities,
shall be held personally accountable by
voters for epidemics in their communi
ties, caused a mild sensation among
delegates to tho Medico-Surgical Con
gress. One application of the personal lia
bility indictment, Dr. Flexner said,
would go further toward eliminating
slums than any amount of highbrow
appeals on moral grounds.

Doctor Claims Discovery
Which Patient Is
PNEUMONIA YIELDS TO IT
By tho Associated Press
New York, June 17. (By A. P.)
Influenza and pneumonia are no more
to bo feared than a boll on the back of
the neck, according to Dr. Charles II.
Duncan, one of the founders of the
Volunteer Hospital, who, in an address
hero today before the convention of the
Allied Medical Associations of America,
described his method of combating
Spanish influenza by means of "Immu
nizing a patient to his own poison."
Upon 240 patients ill with pneumonia
and influenza last winter Doctor Dun
can said, ho, had used the treatment
"without a Rlnglc fatality or any com
plications. "Briefly," the physician said, "I take
one drachm of mucus from tho Infected
area and pasteurize it lu one ounce of
filtered water where it remains several
hours. One cubic centimeter of this
toxin, injected subeutancously, will
effect a spontaneous cure of Spanish In
fluenza, pneumonia, catarrh, or any
similar localized infection. It will stop
any cough, except tuberculosis, inside
of twenty-four hours."
Doctor Duncnti declared that his dis
covery was based upon his observation
of a dog licking n sore paw. ' He said
the dog, by increasing germs of resist
ance at the place of infection brought
about a natural healjng and the method
he employed was similar in that it in
creased the leucocytes or white corpus-
w.i iii uiuun mm ini-se in turn car
ried the poisons out of the human sys
tem. Dr. George F. Laldlow, professor of
the history of medicine and diagnosis
at Flower Hospital) in discussing the
Duncan method, fcaid that the dis
coverer "has solved a problem that has
been germinating in medicine for 2000
3 cars. Doctor Duncan's vork marks
the conclusion of Pasteur, Koch and
Wright and is a decided step forward
in the regular development of bacterial
Doctor Duncan said that by taking
tho poison from a boil and subjecting
it to his process and injecting the
sterilized product into a patient's body
he not only cured him of the boil -fTut
rendered him immune against a repeti
tion of such afflictions.
