He com menced to talk about probably having to fight all of us, when I interposed and advised Cummins to go. .."Villa said he first . thought of send ing the message by me but on second thought decided on Cummins on ac count of his friendship with Velas co, as he would be in no danger.

A statement by Dr. William J. Mayo that the preva lence of cancer is perhaps traceable to present methods of cooking was to the laymen one of the salient opinions in a maze of technical discussions at the opening of the American Surgical as sociation's annual convention today. Dr. Mayo, who is a delegate from Rochester, Minn., and president of the association, is a recognized expert on cancer. He expalined that cancer of the stomach formed a third of ail cancer cases among civilized peoples. "Is there some fundamental fault in the food or in the cooking of civilized men that gives such a preponderance to pro-cancerous conditions in the gastric region?" he asked. "Among the lower animals cancer of the stomach does not form nearly such a large pro portion of the total number of cases." Dr. Mayo said that the amount of meat consumed undoubtedly had some thing to do with the prevalence of cancer. He explained then, other binds of cancer, among them the pe culiar form which attacks the mouths of the natives of India, brought on by an irritation due to chewing betel nuts. Cancer of the groin, according to Dr. Mayo, is confined almost entire ly to chimney sweeps and sailors. L During a discussion atjtfut the ad rvisabilitv of ODeratine for aoDendicitis Dr. James E. Moore of Minneapolis said that he felt that the removal of the appendix was "an interference with the designs of the Lord." Dr. A. G. Gerster, a New York sur geon, replied that if this were "true, all surgery would have to be regarded as an interference with Providence. The discussion followed a paper on "The Two Stage Operation," read by Dr. George W. Crill of Cleveland, O. "We must put ourselves in the posi tion of our patient," continued Dr. Gerster. "If I had to undergo an op eration, I would rather take a little extra risk to get it over with one clip." The present convention Is prelimi nary to the international congress of surgeons, which will meet here Mon day, with representatives from all parts of the United States and most of the European countries. Fifty of the foreign delegates ar rived on the steamship Imperator to day. ALCOHOL MAY BE USED INSTEAD OF GASOLINE. Production of Latter Not Enough to Meet Demands of Motorists. Cincinnati, O., April 9. Some rather curious statistics were brought forth at the convention of the American Chemical society here today for the benefit of automobilists. In his address on "Some Economic Phases of the Use of Gasoline" Prof. Benjamin T. Brooks declared that gasoline is rapidly ap proaching the 40 cents a. gallon mark, at which point, Professor Brooks de clared, alcohol would be an active com petitor. He estimated the present production of gasoline in America to be 25 million barrels of 42 gallons each, and that it is behind the demand made on It by motor vehicles, dry cleaners and vari ous industries. To replace this amount of gasoline by 96 per cent, alcohol made from corn would require 450,000,000 bushels. Professor Brooks said. Discussion was aroused over the paper read by Dr. Kdward Gudeman of Chicago, in which he said that the in halation of sulphurous acid fumes by patients In the incipient phases of tu berculosis had greatly aided in their cure. Dr. Gudeman said that this method of helping those afflicted with tuberculosis had been known for some time by physicians and chemists, but had never been publicly announced un til today. ' The convention closed tonight with a banquet. Tomorrow many of the delegates will go to Dayton, O., to in spect industrial conditions in that city.
