Spartanburg, Sept. 3.?Over 200
phyHioian8 gathered In Spartanburg
to-day to do honor to J)r. Louis W.
Sam bo n of London, England, bailed
as the world's greatoat authority on
tho subject of pellagra. Of this num
bor 185 had come from afar to hear
Dr. Sam boil and join in the discussion
of a mysterious but menacing disease.
Many are distinguished men of medi
cine; others are just knocking at the
portal.; of fame. All were deeply ln
terestod In a subject that Is of vital
Import to tho world but more espe
cially to South Carolina. In addition1
to tho presence of Dr. Sambon tho con
ference was fortunate in having the
foremost authorities on this disease m
tho United StatOS. The conference,
was a success beyond the expectations
of tho enthusiastic promoters. Spar
tanburg physicians and other; had
hoped to see loo physicians here.
.More than twice that number cuniG.
Dr. Babcock was enthusiastic. "Its
a wonderful success," said the super
intendent of the State Hospital for
the Insane, after tllO scientific Ses
sion this afternoon. "It must do great
good. A body of physicians such as
you srr here can't assemble and spend
a day in discussion without their ef
forts bearing fruit." Dr. Babcock is
an authority on the disease, second to
none in the United State.;.
Dr. Harrison of the Thornpson-Me
Fnddoil commission echoed Dr. Hab
COCk's words. The naval surgeon and
pcllugrn student was impressed by the
spirit of the gathering. Distinguish
ed |i lyslclans wen? oagor to exchange
ideas and loam what others had found
of the disease, and SO it was among all
the physicians present.
The conference dovoloped many im
portant features: Dr. Sambon's state
ment that his investigations have led
him to believe that the disease Is not
caused by maize or corn in any form
but by an Insect, possibly the blood
sucking lly or gnat; that it is not con
tagious; that his observation in a
limited area in Spartanburg convince
him that there Is more pellagra in the
t'nited States than in Italy, Spain or
Koumania. Many physicians stressed
the evil that Is done by the mistaken
idea that pellagra Is violently con
tagious, it was deplored that some
hospitals have been loath to admit
pellagrins. All agreed that the dis
ease is not spread by contact. "As
contagious as typhoid fever," said
An impression was made by Dr. La
vindcr's conviction that the disease Is
certainly one that will respond to
\n important statement was that of
Dr. Qrimm of tin? t'nited States pub
lic health service that his investiga
tions indicate that there is not more
pellagra in Spartanburg than else
For State Campaign.
iG. W. Sullivan, senator from An
derson couuly, announced that he had
pledged himself to earnest endeavors
In behalf of a State appropriation for
the maintenance of a campaign
against pellagra in South Carolina.
Senator Sullivan was called on by Dr.
Babcock for an address. Tho chair
man, rofererd to him as the man
who Is responsible for the pure food
laws on the staute books of this State.
Mr. Sullivan said that for some time
he has been aware of the critical con
dition not only of South Carolina but
of all other Southern States from the
mena' ~>t pellagra. He took up the
questl >f aid from the national gov
ernment with the senior South Caro
lina senator, he said, and Mr. Tlll
man Is now actively supporting this
Idea. As a South Carolina senator,
the speaker said, he proposes to make
a fight in the general assembly for
a substanlal appropriation to pros
ecute this work. Not only will he
lend his best efforts to the cause la
the senate, but he hopes to appear
tho senate, but he hopes to appear
hefor the house committee, he de
clared, and with this end in view he
attended the conference today to sit
at the feet of these wist? men of medi
cine and listen and learn. He said
he saw an excellent prospect of suc
cess, although he realizes that the
average legislator Is opposed to ap
l>r. Havno's Appeal.
Dr, J. Adams Hay no, State health
olHoor, departed from the usual dis
cussion to touch only lightly on pel
lagra and take advantage of the op-1
portunity to appeal to so many South
Carolina physicians assembled in
conference. Dr. llayne urged the
physicians to pay more attention to
the cards sent out by the State board
of health for reporting of diseases.
He Jokingly "called" the Charleston
physicians With the statement that
four cases of pellagra had been re
ported from Charleston.
"Fifty of these have slnco died,"
said the speaker.
Dr. A. J. Furman put a motion,
