German Savant Makes No Reply
to Health Service Officers'
Demand for Speed.
Dr. Frtederlch Franz Friedmann, dis
coverer of the turtle fcerum for tuber
culosis, has failed to answer the.
United States Govenmenl's rebuke for
his delay In treating the cases under
observation at New York.
Heads of the Public Health Servl;e
here refuse to comment on this absence
of a reply from the German savant.
Their future course Is only speculative,
but the dilatory methods pursued by
the doctor are holding up the Gov
ernment clinical observations of New
Tork phthisis victims, and hdve halted
the Investigation of the cultures of the
serum at the HyglenicLaboratory here.
Dr. Friedmann has expressed a de
sire to co-operate with the Government.
Btlll the Government officials are say
ing naught, although their letter, sent
through Dr. Anderson, of the Hygienic
Laboratory, shows plainly today that
the Government is annoyed at Dr.
Frledmann's Inaction and his secrecy
as to the genesis of the serum.
Patient Develops Fever.
Unpleasant symptoms developed today
In one of the patients treated In Dr.
Frledmann's clinic Monday,
Isador Freudberg. sixteen years old. of
61 K street, has developed fever and a
pain In the side today. Before night,
his family physician will Investigate the
case to see. whether the development Is
a, natural aftermath or tne imeamann
eerum Injection or a serious ana unex
sected outcome.
Freudberg, despite the pain he suffers
today, wears a smile, for his faith In
the doctor and the new treatment Is the
bow on life s dark cloud for the lad.
I know I'm going to get well, now,"
said Freudberg hopefully, almost tri
umphantly, today to his sister. Miss
Celia Freudberg. His two years' battle
against tuberculosis seemed to be at
an end, and he only laugned at tne
fever and side ache which racked his
already tortured body.
Has Faith In Cure.
"It's a great medicine." he went on in
Ills boyish hope. "And I know that Dr.
Friedmann will cure me so that I can
play and work like the other boys who
don't havo lung trouble. Some day
I'll be a big strong man, thanks to the
great German doctor."
Senator Hughes of New Jersey will
probably introduce In the Senate tomor
row his resolution permitting Dr. Fried
mann to practice in the District. Un
less the secret of the Friedmann cure
Is forthcoming soon, or unless his pati
ents, by improvement, demonstrate the
worth of the remedy. Dr. Friedmann
can be barred from Interstate practice,
but pay get local permits.
In 'its protest over the German's de
lays, the Government tells him that It
wants to make Its determinations of
the curative properties of the tuber
culosis "cure' at an early date, calls
attention to -his dilatory methods and
to the fact that he has not treated
all patients selected for Government
inspection. , J.
The United, States, both for the
sake of the patients, and to make
possible an early decision of the se
rum's curative properties, asks that
he proceed at once with the treat
ment of patients now under Govern
ment observation.
Rebuked In Letter.
The letter to the German savant
Is signed by Dr. John F. Anderson,
director of the hygienic laboratory
and director of the board of investi
gation into the Friedmann cure and
"Dr. Frederlch Franz Friedmann.
Hotel Naragansett, Providence, R. I.:
"We regret to have to invite your at
tention to the halting progress In your
demonstration of the alleged curative
value of your remedy for tuberculo
sis. Only ninety-four of the patients
accepted by you as suitable for such
test have been treated by you. In or
der to avoid undue prolongation of
your demonstration and to avoid un
necessary delay in advising the public
of a Judgment that we may be able
to form of the value of your treatment
we are forced to limit our clinical
studies to the number already treated
under your observation in the hospitals
in New Tork clt.
Prompt Action Urged.
"From conversations with ipu. It Is
understood that some of these patients
are now ready for a further injection
of your remedy. In their interests and
for the reasons for limiting our clinical
observations to those already treated,
we feel that these patients should now
be seen by you with the view of giving
such additional injections of jour rem
edy as may in, in your judgment, be
necessary to effect a cure. We should
be pleased, therefore, to have jou give
this matter jour prompt attention and
Inform us regarding their condition at
an early date. , , .
"We may be communicated with In
writing,- addressed either to Dr. A. N.
Stlmson. Hotel Martinique. New York
cltv. or to Dr. John F. Anderson, di
rector Hjglenic Laboratory. Washing
ton. D. C. Respectfully.
"Director Hygienic Laboratory, Chair
man of the Board."
Did Not Attend Clinic
In the light of this letter, Washing
ton now knows why the Public Health
Service officials remained awav from
Dr. Frledmann's clinic here Monday.
Dr. Friedmann knows the law regard
ing interstate commerce in vaccines,
serums and the like. He promised the
Government, upon arriving In New
York, that he would assist In every way
possible in a prompt Government in
vestigation to determine the potency
and harmlessness of the remedy.
Clinics were established in New York.
Two hundred patients were named. Dr.
Friedmann treated ninety-four, repre
senting all stages of tuberculosis.
Since that time the Government ob
servers have been forced to wait de
velopments while the doctor visited
Montreal, Providence, and Washington
to give further demonstrations.
Government Wants Formula.
Furthermore, the Government has
repeatedly warned the doctor that he
must furnish his original formula be
foru the tests can be complete. Dr.
Friedmann has not refnsed to furnish
this Information, but he has taken no
steps to provide It. No later than Sun
day Dr. Blue, of the Public Health
Service, called Dr. Frledmann's atten
tion to this subject.
Experiments In the hygienic labora
tory are halted. Dt Anderson, with
out knowing the genesis of the serum,
will not administer it to human beings;
and the supply is so limited that he
cannot pursue his treatment of lower
Dr. Friedmann admits that his cul
tures are limited but he has sent to
Berlin for more.
The Public Health Service does not
contemplate an announcement of Its
findings until It has had opportunity to
observe properly all the New York cases
and until the Inner secrets of the cure
arc In Government possession.
Dr. Friedmann has begun treatments
at Co a patient, according to dispatches
from Providence. R. I., where he plans
to make his headquarters during the re
mainder of his stay In America.
Dr. R. D. ApperKon. of Lvnchburg,
Va., was one of Dr. Frledmann's first
patients. He went to Providence by
special train. Governor I'othier, of
Rhode Island, Induced Dr. Friedmann to
treat Apperson despite the facr-tliat his
case is In a practically hopeless stage.
The doctor also treated about slxtv
patlents at J23 each from all section1
of the country.
Letters are reaching Providence from
doctors In manv places trjing to make
appointments for persons en route to
Providence from Texas. Colorado, West
Virginia and northern New England.
