DOCTORS TELL OF ' MANY LIVES SAVED [Continued from First Pnge.] > port of the provost marshal general showed that the average ratio of the United States of the physically unfit to the total number of regis trantsexamined was 46.67, the figures were incorrect and were a reflection upon the manhood of the State ,eH said that in the same report statistics showing the number of men accepted and rejected by every board in de tail indicated that the percentage of rejections was only 28.55. This percentage, he said, should not be considered high owing to the regu lations as v they were then inter preted. Under the first regulations the physicians were very strict. Of 226,115 men drafted only 8.65 pet cent. were rejected at camp. "The first report of the provost marshal general shows that during 1917 Camp Lee and Camp Meade to which practically all of Pennsyl vania's men had been sent during that year, rejected respectively only 2.49 per cent, and 6.24 per cent, of the men arriving in camp," said he. The Major paid a tribute to the self sacrifice of the doctors during the early days of the draft examin ations and to the fact that they received a maximum of four dollars a day, while their devotion to duty on draft board work in hours when they should have been resting dur ing the influenza epidemic. In closing Major Murdock said that the figures showed that "the physical condition of the men of the State in spite of the thousands of accidents annually In the indust rial plants is not alarming, but it can undoubtedly be greatly improved by a proper system of health edu cation." ?• The discussion following Major Murdock's address was opened by Dr. Frederick Van Sickle, the re tiring; president of the society. He spoke briefly In appreciation of the efforts of the Pennsylvania doctors in examining men for the draft and declared that no other state in the union made 'such an enviable rec ord. Colonel Martin Talks Colonel Edward Martin, State Commissioner of Health, delivered a short address on "What the Medi cal Reserve Corps of the Army Should Be." Colonel Martin, after briefly telling of the record which Pennsylvania doctors made in the war, read a letter from Surgeon General Ireland, giving a history of the organization of the reserve corps. In 1908 the Medical Reserve Corps was organized with a very limited number of members, con sisting mostly of physicians and surgeons who assisted the regular small medical corps. In succeeding years tfte corps was slightly enlarg ed until the declaration of war in 1914. when the United States be gan to see the necessity for having tan adequate reserve force of doc tors. After several years of the Eu ropean War, when the British Medi cal Corps was reduced to a shadow of its original self, American doctors began to go overseas with the Allies, and the regular Medical Reserve Corps increased mightily. With our own entry into the war, however, the corps came into its own. Hundreds of doctors immediately accepted commissions in the corps and performed yeoman service throughout the entire time our country was In the struggle. The corps was proud to count among its members some of the most distin guished surgeons of this country, whose * reputations were interna tional. The first American unit to go Into the line was a medical uuit, which took the line with the British in May, 1917, and was made up ut most exclusively of civilian doctors who had only been commissioned actively for several weeks. Over a thousand of our officers wore work ing with the British forces, doing work for which .they were unable "to supply sufficient officers. | . Good t. S. Record Colonel Martin concluded by urg ing every physician and surgeon to accept a commission in the reserve corps, and explaining the work which the corps hoped to accom plish. The Health Commissioner was fol lowed by Colonel Reuben Miller of the Surgeon General's Department. Colonel Miller spoke of the work which the medical department had done and expressed the hope that | Colonel Martin's recommendution to j the doctors about joining the corps would be followed. He told his audience that at the beginning of the war the German medical staff was able to return 82 per cent, of the wounded men to the line, while the French and British could bring barely 22 per cent. back. Later the French were able to bring up their percentage to 82. When the United States took up their part in the war, records showed that they were able to return a total of 92 per cent, of our wounded to the firing line; the best record of any nation in t' struggle. Major C. R. Codman, of Phila delphia introduces a resolution which was unanimously passed by the aud ience and forwarded to the Board for approval, urging every Medical Col lege in the state to adopt the system of the Students' Officers Training Corps and institute special courses which would train the students for later service as officers in the Medical Corps. A very Interesting lecture on blood transfusion was delivered by Major Walker Estell Lee, of Philadelphia. Major Lee illustrated his lecture with motion pictures which made his points doubly clear. Colonel Mar tin opened the discussion on this subject, and he was followed by Ma jor George R. Moffitt, of Harrisburg, who is in the city on leave from the Base Hospital at Fort McPherson, Georgia. Major Moffitt told some of liis experiences in two years' service in an Army laboratory and explained the systems of blood transfusion used by the base hospital in several thousand operations of that type. Suggests Campaign Dr. S. Leon Gans, of Philadelphia, delivered a lecture on Pennsylvania's campaign against veneral diseases explaining the attempts of the Health Department to control and eliminate the diseases. Dr. Gans spoke of the prevalence of all man ner of venereal diseases in the State and suggested educational cam paigns as a means of bettering these conditions. He went over the most recent methods of curing different types of diseases," and told which were in use at present in the State. The discussion on this address was opened by Peter P. Mayock, of Wllkes-Barre. The Importance of Reconstruction in Civil Accidents was the theme chosen by Jonathan M. Wainwright, of Scranton. Dr. Wainwrigfit told of many different types of accidents with which medical authorities and industrial organizations were most familiar, and explained the methods of reconstruction in the more ser ious cases. The discussion was op ened by John B. Lowman, of Johns town. .

When your kidneys get sluggish and clog, you suffer from backache, sick-headaches, dizzy spells, Or twinges and pains of lumbago, rheumatism or gout; or sleep is dis turbed two or three times a night. Take heed, before too late! Get Anuric (anti-uric-acid), for it will put new life into your kidneys and your entire system.
