Berlin, Jan. 22. Germ?n scien
tists today said that the'- had out
witted Dr. Friedrich Friedmann,
discoverer of "Friedmann's tu
berculosis cure," and they hope
soon to be able to say on first

Friedman cure is genuine or not.
Professor Felix Klemperer, a
scientist, announced he had ob

Friedmann's patients to with
draw from his arm the living
bacilli that had been injected by
Friedmann. The germ has been
reproduced in large quantities,
Klemperer said, and scientists all

In another well-known Berlin
laboratory, the Friedmann cul
ture is being experimented with
by one of the most eminent scien
tists of Germany, formerly a col

that apparently the Friedmann
cure was genuine.

that in a short time the medical
experts of Europe will be enabled v
to pass authoritatively on the
merits of Friedmann's discovers-.
