AMA Maps Policies
For U. S. Physicians; Plans Dues Penalty By George Beveridge Thousands of doctors here turned their full attention to medical discussions today, as special committees of the Ameri can Medical Association went into closed sessions to map policies for the Nation’s physicians. . Of top importance is a proposal for an unprecedented levy of an nual dues on AMA members—in cluding a threat of expulsion to hang over those who become de linquent in payment. The plan, which would provide k for a maximum of $25 in dues pet year, will reach the AMA's policy-making House of Delegates tomorrow for final action. The AMA board of trustees gave it, without comment, to a by-laws committee for study yesterday, at the opening of the powerful medical organization's third an nual four-day clinical session. Controversial Issues Up. The house members represent doctors of the country who now gain AMA membership through membership in their local medical societies. - The House also will take up resolutions on medical care, Fed eral aid to education and other controversial issues in the AMA drive to stop President Truman’s compulsory health insurance plan. But principal attention focused today on 18 section meetings in the District National Guard Armory, where authorities outlined recent developments in treatment and research. An AMA official took a dim view of one highly advertised development, however—the over the-counter sale of anti-hista minic drugs as treatment for the common cold. Dr. Austin Smith, new editor of the AMA Journal, said there is some data indicating the anti histaminics have an effect in some people with colds, but that "we leel there is not as yet any chemi cal substance that is a specific preventive or cure.’’ Data Insufficient. While the drugs are effectively used to treat allergy. Dr. Smith said, the AMA’s Council on Phar macy and Chemistry has declared the “available data is insufficient to justify the present widespread use of these drugs." In addition, he said, some undesirable side effects, such as drowsiness, already have been seen. “No one knows,” he added, “what harmful effect they may have on the body over prolonged periods of time.” Dr. Albert J. Sullivan of the Ochsner Clinic, New Orleans, and a former chief medical officer at Gallinger Hospital here, told the doctors that about 40 per cent of cases of chronic diarrhea are of nervous origin. 1 Emotional upsets during the last three months of pregnancy also may cause the child to suffer “nursery diarrhea” for weeks or months after birth, Dr. Sullivan said. Utilization of hormones as a weapon against cancer is “the most exciting thing happening in medicine in this country today,” Dr. Frank E. Adair, noted cancer research specialist from Me morial Hospital, New York, told the Clinical Session on Cancer. Pointing out that hormones have been used in the battle against cancer for less than five years, Dr. Adair displayed photo graphs of dramatic results achieved with hormone therapy. He emphasized that only patients “considered hopeless cases” are participating in his present re search. Strong Reaction Noted. Some of the results are disap pointing, he said, but even these show that cancer reacts strongly to hormone therapy. “It is only a question of time, now,” he said, “until we will know how to do things with the tools that have been made available to us.” In another talk, Leon H. Hirsh, of Milwaukee, deviated from the new-development trend to tell the doctors studies have proved the value of many of the old tried and-testad remedies for coughing. The proven value of paregoric, for example, he said has returned to respectability several “cough syrups” which are useful when •removal of mucous from the bronchial tubes is desirable. Carbon dioxide used in a mixture •with 95 per cent of oxygen has proved the most effective tool for this purpose, however, he added. See Television Program. In a television presentation •from Gallinger Hospital yesterday, a group of District doctors re viewed progress in the use of ■streptomycin in treatment of tuberculosis. The authorities outlined use of other drugs to off set resistance of tuberculosis bacteria to streptomycin and urged earlier surgery in many patients with advanced stages of the disease.__ The National Geographic Soci ety says American craftsmen have recaptured the lost medieval methods of staining glass. 15 SHOpplNOAVt Kpr fay CHRIST"” StAIS-' Doctor Reports Fast Grippe Cure Found in Coca Cola Syrup A dramatic cure for epidemic vomiting—a highly infectious dis ease now sweeping the Washing ton area and more popularly known as grippe—has been dis covered in the basic syrup of one of the country’s most popular soft drinks. Dr. J. Edmund Bradley, pro fessor of pediatrics at the Uni versity of Maryland School of Medicine, told of the clinical and experimental investigation, which resulted in discovery of the “cure” in Coca Cola syrup at the Clinical Session of the American Medical Association late yesterday. Dr. Bradley and a team of medical research men undertook their search for a specific treat ment for epidemic vomiting about a year and a half ago. Their interest developed because the malady had been well described in medical literature, but no one knew how to cure it. While children are more sus ceptible, the disease frequently strikes adults and often goes un der the nsftne of “intestinal flu or grippe,” Dr. Bradley said. In seeking some means of re storing the ability of the human body to use starches and sugars adequately. Dr. Bradley and his research staff sought an acid prep aration with a high sugar content. One of the preparations they used was Coca Cola syrup. Results with the syrup came I swiftly. The violent contractions | of the muscles that caused vom iting ceased. The patient lost his intense thirst for water—a char acteristic of the diease. And in a day he was almost entirely cured. Dr. Bradley passed his problem on to a Midwest chemical labora tory, and it came up with a very acid phosphorylated carbohydrate solution, which worked even more dramatically than the Coca Cola syrup. Washington area doctors pressed Dr. Bradley for information as to where they could buy the mixture. It is not on the market, as yet, Dr. Bradley said. Dr. Charles A. Millwater, 2434 Sixteenth street N.W., observed that Dr. Bradley’s report was particularly pertinent because “we are now experiencing a mild epi demic of the disease.” The disease normally runs its course in from 24 hours to five days. Dr. Bradley" said. While vomiting is the outstanding feat ure, diarrhea frequently is one of its characteristics. Often the vomiting is followed within three to five days by a respiratory in fection. The disease is usually uncomplicated, but there may follow a period of fatigue and in tolerance to foods, especially these with a high fat content. The specific cause of the disease has not been determined, Dr. Bradley said. U.N. Prepares to Make Final Decision Today On China's Charges By th* Associated Frost NEW YORK, Dec. 7.—The United Nations General Assembly prepared today to take a final stand on whether or not it will pass in silence Nationalist China’s charges of Soviet interference in Chinese internal affairs. The Assembly has before it two proposals approved by its 59-na-i tion Political Committee at Lake Success last night. One of these—an American backed resolution adopted in com mittee by an overwhelming 47-to- j 5 vote—calls on the world to keep hands off China and let the J Chinese settle their own troubles. This measure is regarded as cer tain to receive final approval by the plenary session of the As sembly. The second measure, and the one on which Nationalist China now pins its hopes, would refer the whole Chinese question to the year-around ‘‘Little Assembly.” That body would bring in recom mendations to the 1950 General Assembly. , vote »non oi majority. Cuba, Ecuador and Peru intro duced the second proposal which is designed to keep alive National ist charges of Russian aid to the Chinese Reds. The resolution was adopted in committee, 23 to 19, with 14 abstentions. The vote was far short of the two-thirds ma-! jority support normally needed for final Assembly approval. The Chinese case constitutes one of the few major items of business remaining before this session of the Assembly. The Assembly is scheduled to dispose of the Indo nesian question before it reaches the resolutions on China. The Special Political Commit tee has commended the Dutch and the Indonesians for reaching agreement at the recent round table conference in The Hague for the establishment of a sov ereign United States of Indonesia. The new nation will be linked to the Netherlands under the Dutch crown and will have a status sim ilar to that of dominions in the British Commonwealth. The Soviet bloc opposed the majority-backed Indonesian reso lution. It has before the Assem bly a measure of its own which contains a bitter condemnation of Dutch policy in the rich South Pacific islands and calls for re placement of the U. N. commis sion for Indonesia by a body com posed of members of the Security Council. U. S. Stand Disappoints unuu. Following the action on the Chinese case taken at Lake Suc cess yesterday. Dr. T. F. Tsiang, Chinese nationalist delegate, ex pressed deep disappointment that the • United States • had voted against the Latin-America pro posal. He said the defeat of the Latin American resolution “would mean the general assembly would pass in silence my serious charges against Soviet Russia.” Soviet block delegates remained silent during the Political Com mittee’s debate but cast negative votes when the committee reached the balloting stage on the reso lutions. The Latin American proposal was a face-saver for the Chinese Nationalists. Generalissimo Chi ang Kai-shek’s representatives in the U. N. had unsuccessfully sought to obtain a promise from the non-Communist world not iff grant diplomatic recognition to the Chinese Red regime in Pei ping. --„ T—i—- \ - New Zealand Premier Presents Resignation ly the Allot kited hen WELLINGTON, Neir, Zealand, Dec. 7.—Prime' MiniStij Peter Fraser, whose Labor ^dvei’timent was turned out of office in last week’s elections, submitted his res ignation today to Governor Gen eral Sir Bernard Freyberg. %'%% Sidney G. Holland, leader of tim victorious Nationalist Party, was commissioned to form a new gov* ernment with himself as Prime 1 Minister. He was expected to an nounce the names of his new cabi , net members tomorrow. Parents of Four Face Juvenile Court on Delinquency Charge The parents of four young chil dren, now being held in Hyatts ville Jail, will face the Prince Georges County Juvenile Court tomorrow on charges of contrib uting to their delinquency. The county welfare department placed the charges against Mar vin E. Arthur, 33, and his wife Martha, 28. of Colmar Manor, after it said both parents were found under the influence of in toxicants, the children living in, filthy conditions and badly in need of food, and the kitchen sink full of beer cans. Both are charged with con tributing to the delinquency of minor children. Arthur is being held under $1,000 bond and his wife under $100 bond. Teus or Mint with wire. According to Roy D. Bright,1 probation officer, and Colmar Manor Police Lt. D. H. Mulligan, the following incidents led to the couple's arrest. . Lt. Mulligan said he found Ar thur, apparently under the in fluence of liquor, near a hot-dog stand on Bladensburg road near the Peace Cross Monday night. Arthur had blood splotches on his clothing and questioning disclosed he had had a fight with his wife. Lt. Mulligan charged Arthur with disorderly conduct and took him to the Hyattsville Jail where he was locked up in default of $50 collateral or $300 bond. Investigating further, Lt. Mul ligan then went to the Arthur’s four-room bungalow in the 4300 block of Newark road. There he found two boys, 9 and 7 years old, sleeping on a mattress on the floor. Their clothes were filthy, he said. On a bed were a 3-year old girl and a 16-month-old boy, also clothed. House Reported Cold. The policeman found Mrs. Arthur in another part of the house and said she appeared to have been drinking. The house was in a state of dis array and was described as cold and filthy. Lt. Mulligan left and returned with coal for a heating stove. He notified Mr. Bright. Early yesterday morning police and welfare officials returned with food for the family. One of the children, according to welfare of ficials, became ill after eating be cause of previous hunger. Mrs. Ora West, also of the Wel fare Department, was called after the family was fed and she placed the children in foster homes until the case can be settled.

Dec. 7.—Henry Julian Wadleigh, former State Department official who admits he gave secret documents to Whittaker Chambers in the 1930s, appeared today in the courthouse where Alger Hiss is on trial and Government law yers indicated they would call him as a witness, There had been speculation that Mr. Wad leigh might not be called at this trial. The defense has said it will show that he gave Mr. Chambers the papers which al legedly came from Mr. Hiss. - % By Newbold Noyes, Jr. Star Stair Carr«»pond«nt NEW YORK, Dec. 7.—The mem ory of Mrs. Esther Shemitz Cham bers came in for more testing in the second Alger Hiss perjury trial today as Defense Attorney Claude B. Cross continued to cross-exam ine the wife of the Government’s chief witness against the, former State Department official. Working patiently and quietly. Mr. Hiss’ lawyer produced his best effect when he introduced a new question about the time scheme of the Hiss-Chambers relation ship as described by Mrs. Cham bers. He put the witness in the po sition of apparently claiming that she saw Mr. kiss later than she has previously testified to having seen him. Until today, Mrs. Chambers had mentioned only two occasions when she claims to have visited the Hiss home at 3415 Volta place N.W. One time was at a house warming party shortly after New Year, 1938, and the other was an occasion when she says she re members seeing Mrs. Hiss switch on the lights at 4 p.m„ which would seem to indicate that this, too, occurred in the wintertime. Recalled Forsythia Blooming. Mr. Cross reminded Mrs. Cham bers that yesterday she said she remembered seeing forsythia blooming on the Volta place house. “Where was the forsythia?” the attorney asked. “It was trained against the wall.” said Mrs. Chambers. “In," Mr. Cross said slowly, “the dead of winter?” Mrs. Chambers hesitated a moment and then replied: “It might have been early spring. I don’t know.” In other questions, Mr. Cross confronted the witness with dis crepancies between her testimony in this trial and that which she has given before. Most of the discrepancies had to do with mi nor details of the events she de scribed. Baltimore Visit Questioned. For example, Mrs. Chambers now says that Mrs. Hiss once came to Baltimore from Wash ington to take care of young Ellen Chambers, while Mrs. Chambers made a trip to New York for pre natal care of her new baby. Mr. Cross brought out she tes tified at a pretrial hearing in Baltimore last November that Mrs. Hiss did not spend the night at her house on this occasion, but now says Mrs. Hiss did spend the night. “That’s right,” Mrs. Chambers said, “because the clinic in New York was on Thursday, and the day she came was Wednesday, I remember. Therefore, she must have stayed overnight.” Mr. Cross completed his cross examination of Mrs. Chambers shortly before the luncheon recess and Asistant United States Attor ney Thomas E. Murphy took the witness over on a re-direct ex amination. The prosecutor believes there Is a chance the Government can rest its case against Mr. Hiss, former State Department official and for mer president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, before the week end recess Friday. The main business remaining, he says, is the testimony of Fed eral Bureau of Investigation ex perts that copies and digests of secret Government papers, pro duced by Mr. Chambers as evi dence in the case, were made on a typewriter belonging to Mr. Hiss in the 1930s—or were handwrit ten by him. This statement seemed to lend substance to the belief that the Government may not call Henry Julian Wadleigh, who testified at the first trial that he was one of Mr. Chambers’ former sources in the State Department. The de fense lawyer indicated in his opening statement to the jury, November 17, that he hoped to prove Mr. Wadleigh and other unnamed accomplices gave Mr. Chambers the papers he says came from Mr. Hiss. Couldn’t Remember Names. The boyish-looking 45-year-old defendant is accused of lying to a Federal grand jury last Decem ber 15, when he denied that he ever gave secret material to Mr. Chambers or saw his accuser after 1937. Mrs. Chambers had trouble re membering just what Communist pseudonyms she and her husband used at various periods, and where they lived in each stage. Once she complained it was hard to remember “after 14 years of try ing not to remember any of it.” As at the first trial, Mrs. Cham- j bers became badly snarled when! she tried to untangle for Mr. Cross the times and places of three parties which she says she remembers. All three were cele brations alegedly attended only by Mr. and Mrs. Chambers and Mr. and Mrs. Hiss. The parties, as she finally straightened them out, were as follows: 1. A New Year eve affair, usher-; ing in 1937, at the Hisses, 1245 Thirtieth street N.W. On this occasion, she said, Mr. Chambers drank port wine and got sick on the way out to the car. 2. A celebration of the Hisses' j wedding anniversary in mid December, 1937, at the Chambers place on Mount Royal Terrace, Baltimore. On this occasion, Mrs. Chambers said, they drank Amer ican champagne and she got sick. 3. The “housewarming” at the; Hisses, Volta place house, ini January, 1938. They ate sand-i wiches on this occasion, and no body got sick. Toward the end of the after noon, Mr. Cross asked Mrs. Chambers about a passport her! husband received in 1935. Did she know then he got it with false papers? “It did not come to my atten tion,” the witness replied, “but it | would not have mattered if it had.” Mrs. Chambers said her hus-i band later gave her the passport! for safekeeping. “Did you keep it in a locked container?” Mr. Cross asked. “Actually,” she said, “I kept it in the chicken house.” Political Courts Set Up By East Reich Regime By th« Associated Press BERLIN, Dec. • 7-—The East German government followed the; example of other Russian satellite j countries today and esjpblished a high court for crimes against the state. There will be no appeal from the Judgment of this court. Tribu nals of this type conducted the Mlndzenty and Ralk trials in Budapest. The Federal Spotlight U. S. Civil Service Far Superior, Rees Finds on European Tour By Joseph Young Just returned from a trip to Europe, where he investigated the various civil service systems there, Representative Rees, Republican, of Kansas, says Government employes here are “infinitely better off” in comparions with government workers in other countries.. Mr. Rees, who is the top-ranking minority member of the House Civil Service Committee, declares: “Our civil service system is far from perfect, but its so much bet ter than anything Europe has to offer that there's no com parison.” Some of the countries Mr. Rees visited were England, France, Italy, Germany, Bel gium and Hol land. “Our own civil service em ployes are much better off than any of the others on all ,0,*ph Yoonr counts,” Mr. Rees discloses. “American civil service employes get better salaries, much more generous working conditions and benefits, and have much greater job protection rights,” the Kansan says. He adds that not only are Gov ernment salaries higher here than in European countries, but that none of the countries offers its civil servants any retirement and injury compensation benefits such as Government employes here en joy. * * ^ ^ OVERSTAFFING—Its interest ing to note that Mr. Rees, who frequently has charged there are too many Government employes on the Federal payroll here, found that France and England “are overloaded with government workers—much more so than here.” In Germany, Mr. Rees says the merit system principle is vir tually unknown, with civil service jobs obtainable “if you know the friend of a friend.” Mr. Rees says 60 per cent of the members of the German leg islature in Western Germany also hold government Jobs. “It’s as if 60 per cent of the members of the United States Congress also held positions in the various Government agencies,” Mr. Rees said. * * * * i * j MERIT—Although England and France, among several other European nations, have merit sys tems, they are not nearly as strong as the United States’ sys tem, Mr. Rees says. Personal patronage still plays a considerable role in filling gov ernment jobs in these countries, he adds. “Consequently, the European civil sendee worker in any country there doesn’t have nearly the amount of Job career protection than does the American civil serv ice employe," Mr. Rees declares. Mr. Rees says he feels that our own civil service system can be strengthened a great deal more, but he says it’s only fair to state that, even with its faults, it’s still the best in the world. Incidentally, as reported here several weeks ago, Mr. Rees paid for his trip out of his own pocket. * * * * NAVY—In a ruling highly fa vorable to Government employe unions, the Navy Department has decided to allow union organizers to contact and make speeches to Navy civilian employes during non-working hours on Navy prem ises.

Broadcast Sets Off Romanian Buying Spree By tht Associated Press BUCHAREST, Romania, Dec. 7. —A Voice of America broadcast about Romanian currency troubles has touched off a buying spree by Romanians fearing another devaluation of the nation's money. Sales of textiles, foodstuffs, cig arettes and other goods sky rocketed. Rumors of impending currency stabilization moves have been current for some time.. But the buying rush got going after the Voice of America radio broad cast a report that the Bulgarian state bank was refusing to change Romanian currency. The government-controlled press denied that any currency revalua tion moves are planned. The leu was devalued in 1947 when the government decreed that 20,000 leu should have the value of one leu. The official rate now sets 100 leu as equivalent to 6.7 United States cents. House Member Files Brief On Dining Car Segregation Ry tht Associated Pros* Representative Hobbs, Demo crat, of Alabama filed a brief in the Supreme Court yesterday-as serting it would be a “kiss of | death” to strike down racial seg regation on Southern railroad dining cars.

He said he offered the brief "at the suggestion of other members of the committee." , The brief was presented as a “friend of the court” document in the case of Elmer W. Henderson, a Baltimore Negro. Mr. Hender son appealed to the Supreme Court from a decision by a special three judge Federal court in Baltimore that dining car regulations on Southern lines do not discrimi nate against Negroes. The court will hear arguments in the case later this term. U. N. Assembly Sends Southwest Africa Case To Hague Tribunal |y th« Associated Press NEW YORK, Dec. 7.—Th* United Nations Assembly yester day brushed aside South African protests and referred the ques tion of Southwest Africa's status to the International Court of Jus tice at The Hague. The area is ruled by South Africa under a mandate of the League of Nations. South Africa refuses to transfer it to the U. N. trusteeship system. Measures given final approval ’ by the Assembly also invite South Africa to resume submitting re ports to the U. N. on its rule over Southwest Africa. The Assembly reached its de cisions after South African Dele gate G. P. Jooste struck back in debate at criticism of his nation's policies in Southwest Africa. He made it clear, however, that his government intends to stay in the U. N. The South African delegation recently walked out of committee consideration of the Southwest Africa question. Mr. Jooste told the assembly, however, that South Africa had assisted in the crea tion of the U. N. and added: “We have a vital interest in its future." Britain also is in rebellion against some assembly recom mendations bearing on adminis trations of colonies and U. N. trust territories. Minister of State Hector McNeil told the as sembly last week the British would disregard U. N. actions they con sidered to be against British in terests in this field. Southwest Africa is the only league mandate area that has not been either liquidated into self government or put under the trusteeship system by the man date power. The vote submitting the ques tion to the International Court was 40 to 7 with 4 absentions. The Soviet bloc opposed the resolution. The United States supported it. 350 Luxembourg Orphans Go to Mrs. Mesta's Party ly the Associated Press LUXEMBOURG, Dec. 7.—Mrs. Perle Mesta, American Minister to Luxembourg, yesterday threw her biggest party to date here. She entertained 350 Luxembourg orphans. • It was St. Nicholas < Santa Claus) Day in the Grand Duchy. The Minister, famed for her Washington society parties, was thanked by the kids, who, in their ! own language, called her “Auntie.’* ! Mrs. Mesta, in a black satin | dress, presided over the party, the I highlight of which was a puppet theater brought from Paris for the occasion. Roman Catholic Bishop Lommel translated Mrs. Mesfa’s address to the orphans at the; town casino. Each child received gifts of toys and candy. Mrs. Mesta, who is still recov ering from a light attack of flu. said "next year we shall do it for the orphans of othes Grand Duchy cities.” EUGENE C. GOTT, Pres.
