SEES CHLORINE GAS AS AGENT OF MERCY Gen. Fries Says Death-Deal- i ing Product Is Developed i Into Healing Remedy. Chlorine gas. developed In war as a death-dealing weapon of destruction, was stanchly defended as a soothing agent of mercy by Oen. Amos A. Pries, chief of the Army Chemical Warfare Service, last night in a speech at the Raleigh Hotel. The occasion was a joint meeting of the Chemical Warfare Reserve Officers and members of the American Chemi cal Society, under the auspices of the Pnited States Chemical Warfare As sociation. This same gas. which had in war fare recently been listed as one of the most dreaded instruments of attack, according to Oen. Fries, has been de veloped to the point where there is little, if any, doubt of its good in cur ing, preventing or ameliorating whoop ing cough, bronchitis, common colds, rhinitis, laryngitis and two or three other diseases of the respiratory sys tem. • Jen. Pries told about the exploration of Lieut. Col. Yedder and Capt. Sawyer, both of the Medical Corps, during two and a half years in the work of proving whether chlorine gas could be used suc cessfully. "After about one and one-half years of experiment," he said, "they reported 9.H cases, covering whooping cough, bronchitis, both acute and chronic; com mon colds, rhinitis, laryngitis and two or three others. The results were so conclusive of the good effect of chlorine that they unhesitatingly gave the report In full.” He also told of the tests of Col. Gil christ, detailed to his office, in a chlorine chamber 7>£ by 10 feet, who up to De cember 5 had treated 2,175 persons, old and young, rich and poor, day laborers and congressmen. “Out of the 2,175.'' he said, “reports were made out by 1,979. Os those, 844, or 42.6 per cent, reported them selves cured; 878, or 44.4 per cent, improved; 257, or IS per cent, no im provement. Thus, 87 per cent of all that group of people treated over a space of three or four months in a little chamber 7ts by 10 feet, occu pied by 3 to as many as 11 people at a time, reported themselves cured or improved." In one case bronchial asthma of 10 years' standing was reported re lieved by chlorine gas, he said. He also gave details of treatments to members of his family, including his ■wife, who was cured of a cold which threatened to develop into pneumonia by three treatments. “Are we to say to the thousands who have reported themselves cur§d or greatly improved that ‘You are lying,’ or ‘You are crazy'?” he asked. "Or ‘You don't know what >ou are talking about'? That is what the quihbler says, in effect, when he ar gues that chlorine does not or will not cure. * * *. Let those who will squabble as to whether chlorine kills this germ or that germ or whether it does not kill any germ. 1 know it cures, and so do thousands of others." Detailed as Instructor. First Lieut. Paul J. Harter, Coast Artillery Corps, at Fort Adams, R. 1., has been detailed as a military in structor at the University of Pitts burgh.
