Following this conference. Dr. Frled

he was the luncheon guest of Dr. Paul
E. Rltter, the Swiss minister. ,
He declared that he would decide late
this afternoon about his plans for treat

Remembering his unpleasant experi

prietor forbade him to treat patients in
his room. Dr. Frledmann today put up
the bars at the Wlllard Hotel and re
fused to answer telephone calls. He is
entirely willing to give his treatment
here, but he stipulates that it must be
in a hospital under proper conditions.
Dr. Frledmann stands ready to
dav to turn his treatment entirely over
to "the United States Government. The
Government, however, must make him
an offer one that will assure him that
the treatment will be placed in the
hands of all reputable physicians In this

"No doubt I, too, would be angry and
skeptical if I were an old doctor and
found a young man making tuberculosis
cures where I had seen patients dying
under mv eyes constantly," said Dr.
Frledmann in reply to a question as to
his feeling toward the national, city,
and State governments and physicians
with whom he has come in contact In
this country.
"I have po complaint to make. I only
know that my treatment is a cure and

Dr. Frledmann admitted that a Provi

cases where tuberculosis patients had

be held responsible for the deaths.

Gertrude Atherton Says Sisters
Have Intellects, But Are Too
Lazy to Use Them.
That California women, generally
speaking, display some of the charac
teristics of the common oyster, is the
statement which Gertrude Aatherton
made in Philadelphia when she lectured
at the Berkeley Lyceum on the "Prog
ress of Women."
"My sister , Calif ornians I found to be
Intellectual, but lazy,'' she said. and
this condition suggested to my mind
that they had the temperament of a
mollusc. So I boldly called them oys
ters, and took them to task for not
legistering before election and otherwise
attending to their political responsibili
ties. The morning after my scathing
arraignment ten thousand women hast
ened out to register, and I hope they all
vojed when the time came.
"The trouble with our American wom
en is that they cannot get over being
economical. Oh, yes, on clothes they
have succeeded In overcoming the ten
dency to scrimp and save. And they
will spend money to get elected to of
fices, too. 3ut their generosity ceases
there. They will not spend to advance
the great cause.
"Women must learn from men how
to spend money wisely. Men know
where it counts most, and they never
dream of economizing on such matters.
A politician Is a politician regardless
of sex, but the feminine politician needs
to learn a few other things. For in
stance, I find she takes herself too
seriously. It is all very well to take
your subject seriously, but not your
self. "Los Angeles is the vermiform appen
dix of California, and It is filled with
the riff-raft of the Middle West," she
raid. Mrs. Atherton lives in San Fran
cisco. "Recently I consulted a brain special
ist to learn whether this part of the
human machinery deteriorates as does
the body," she continued. "He assured
me that it does not. and told me that
there was no reason why a woman
should not write a better novel at the
age of ninety than at forty. That's en
couraging, isn't it?"
