SAVES MANY LIVES
VIATORS are born and not made,
according to medical corps offi
cers attached to the research
laboratory at the Mlneola flying field.
The conclusions reached by tho air
surgeons were laid by them before
tho Academy of Medical Science last
Thursday at a meeting called to con
alder medical problems in avli -ion.
Mlneola, as one of the most impor
tant flying fields In the country, is
also, although this is known to few,
the soat of a laboratory unique In the
United States. It Is In this laboratory
that all conditions of flying have been
reproduced so faithfully that It Is pos
sible, in fact It Is usual, for the medi
cal men there to tell positively whether
or not a man Is an aviator beforo he
has even seen an airplane.
As an Illustration of the valuable
work performed by the aero medical
service In preventing accidents by
keeping men unfit to enter tho avia
tion corps on tho ground, Lleut.-Col.
Eugene R. Lewis cited the statistics
of tho British air service.
"In tho first year of the war It was
found that of tho total cabualtles In
the air service Co per cent, wero due
to physical defects of the pilots," he
said. "This caused tho British to in
stitute a special medical servlco for
tho flying corps. In the second year
only 30 per cent, of casualties were
due to defects of pilots and In the
third year only 12 per cent." 1
racing; a Threefold Problem.
Three problems confront the medi
cal men attached to the air service,
according to Col. Lewis. These are
the selection of personnel, tho classi
fication of this personnel according to
flying ability and the malntenanco of
the efficiency of the filers.
"The only criticism which has been
directed against us has been tho fact
lhat wo put the bars up too far In
physical standards," Cnl. Lewis eald.
"The answer to this is that we hail
K.ways a sufficient number of men
v ho came up to tho h-jh standards.
' therwlse wo would havo let down the
nlghest bar so us to have enough
The classification of the men se
lected as fit for duty In the air was
accomplished by laboratory tests to
discover how they were affected by
conditions at various altitudes. Two
complicated pieces of apparatus, the
vacuum chamber and tho rebreathtng
apparatus wero used to ascertain tho
endurance of the men at various
"Tho vacuum chamber and tho less ,
a system of grad- '
sygen precisely ns 1
were both based on
':ul rr.refactlofi of oxygen precisely as
occurs ns ono ascends in an air-
plane." Dr. Lewis said In outlining
the tests used. "By regulation of tho '
amount of oxygen In tho vacuum
chamber, for Instance, it was possible
to see Just how rapidly any man's
efficiency decreased as his oxygon sup
ply was cut off. Various tests to de
termine his alertness and rapidity of
action wero given. It was thus pos
nlble to classify tho men as sultablo
for high altitude, middle altltudo and
low altitude fliers."
Slaving pictures of aviators under
going the tests were shown. As they
breathed less and less oxygen as tho
ulr was exhausted tho candidates'

new addition to tho medical pro-
uary. 1916, where Mrs. Wilson made
her first appearanco as tho President's
bride was actually the first White
House affair she ever had attended.
Look at thoso to whom she has had
to play hostess since then. There has
been no time In the history of tho
country when there has been such i
constant und brilliant succession of
notables from all over the world pass
ing through Washington as In the last
two years. Why thern are lots of us
here who have fairly hugged ourselves
fesslon Is the "flight surgeon-." This'
specialist, the highest type of medical
man connected with tho air service, Is
charged with the maintenance of the
physical efficiency of the aviators. It
Is his duty to observe constantly and
under all conditions tho aviators In
his section, not only 6it tho field but
In barracks, at mess and during recre
ation. "Tho flight surgeon must detect the
beginning of physical deterioration of
the aviator." Lleut.-Col. Lewis said.
"Deterioration among high altitude
pilots Is particularly rapid and must
be watched for with the greatest care.
As soon as any sign Is noted it is the '
duty of the surgeon to take tho man
out of flying for a day or a week and
put him through a course of training
which will restore his efficiency and
prevent that dangerous fatigue known
as stalrness, The flight surgeon has
as his assistants men skilled in physi
cal training and nutrition officers who
look after the nourishment of the

Major Lewis Fisher, nlso attached to
tho Mlneola research laboratory, de
scribed to tho physicians tho mysteri
ous "eighth sense," a sensa so subtle
that Its existenco was not suspected
by tho medical profession until man
took to tho air.
"Tho ear Is an organ of two diBtlnct
senses," he said. "Hearing and equi
librium are both controlled In tho in
ternal ear. The latter sense Is ex
tremely Important In flying, for with
out It the aviator would not know
that his machlno was tipping or
dropping In time to correct It."
A shining white chair much resem
bling the revolving chair of a barbei,
but actually part of tho enulnment or
tho air laboratory at Mlneola, was used :
by the surgeon to demonstrate thlsj
eighth ponse. A volunteer seated In !
xne cnair with eyes closed was whirled
violently around to tho right and then
"Now which way arc you moving?"
asked tho Major.
"To tho left," responded tho man
promptly. Ho continued to assert his
movement for tlireo or four seconds af
ter tho chair had ceased to move.
Major Fisher explained that when
the .motion to tho right was started

not partake of tho motion, lagging be

of tho President responding In Kngllsh
to addresses made to him In French,
which ho neither understands nor
speaks. Ono remembers that when
Joffro was here their Intercourse had
to fro through an Interpreter. As to
tho statements that Mrs. Wilson speaks
French they are discreetly silent as to
what sort of French. She probably
docs speak It. She travelled a good
deal during the years of her widow
hood spent probably part of each year
abroad. And she had undoubtedly
picked up a working knowledge of
French. But Mrs. Wilson cortalnh
never had tho advantage of French

of idiom and accent.

We are witnessing with sorrow the
passing of the McAdoos. Without
reference to Mr. McAdoo's public ser
vice, ho nnd his wife have been per

brought Into per'or.al contact with
him havo found him delightful, and
aro heartbroken that he Is leaving.
They seem to have tho greatest ad
miration and respect for him, and
many of them are leaving also.
As for Mrs. McAdoo If she Is not
entirely happy In her married life she
Is a consummate actress. She Is ever
so much better looking nnd better
liked than she waa as Miss Wilson,
largely because, she fairly radiates
contentment with her lot and satisfaction-
and pride In her husband. She
has recently been having two farewell

Her granddaughters debut was the
most entirely satisfying function of
