HE WILL NOT RESIGN
Athens, July 5. George Fred Wil

today said he knew nothing of the re

Peking, July 5.--The Rockefeller
commission which is here investigat
ing China's needs in a medical and
surgical way has already found that
a most important point is this: the
Chinese must be taught to doctor
themselves along modern lines and
not rely, except for the present, upon
the foreign medical men.
The country is so vast and the need
of the medical men so extensive that
all the doctors and surgeons in Amer
ica could be utilized in China. Such
a great invasion, or even enough to
make any wide impression, is im
practicable. The solution must be the
training of the Chinese doctors. At
present there are only a few score of
them trained along modern lines, and
these have difficulty in making a li -ing.
The Chinaman is suspicious of
the secondhand training of the mod
ernized Chinese doctor, and if he is
moved to resort to foreign treatment
he prefers to go direct to the foreign
The commission, which is represent
ed here by Dr. Harry Pratt Judson,
president of Chicago university, and
Dr. Francis W. Pea body of Boston, has

to any definite plan, but its report un-

ment, both central and local. has
furthered rather than impeded the
work of the commission.
In the medical schools, the commis
sion has found various men at work
trying to coin medical characters and
combinations of characters or expres
sions in Chinese.
It was only three years ago that the
first class of Chinese educated in
China took their medical degrees from
the union college (where American
and British missionary doctors work
together) here in Peking. Last year
the first olass, a small number, of
women doctors were graduated. Be
cause of prejudices against the treat
ment of women by men. women doc
tors will have a valuable place in the
medical work in China.
While the class of Chinese who
prefer the old-style Chinese doctors Is
still in the majority, the foreign doc
tors have more than what they can
THEIR MEDICINE POOR.
Chinese medicine is a poor thing.
The Chinese have had for centuries
remedies for certain well-known dis
eases, remdies which are often very
effective. But they have never, ap
parently, studied anatomy, and know
little or nothing of the reasons for
actions and counteractions. Much i?
not most of their work is quackery.
They have very little knowledge of
surgery. As a rule the Chinese doc
tor cannot sel a here. Men whose
broken limbs could be stuck together
by an ordinary man in Europe or Am
erica become permanent cripples in
China. Such are to be seen even on
the streets of Canton. Shanghai and
Peking, where the services of the for
eign doctors are always available.
They are men who have gone to their
own Instead of foreign doctors, and
probably have received plasters, or
even medicine to take internally, for
their broken bones.
Some of the tales that go through
the country about the missionary doc
tors are to these people like stories
of the Bible. A man learns of a sur
prising cure, which seems to him mir
aculous. A friend has been shot by
brigands or by marauding troops of
the government and is paralyzed down
one side as a result. The foreign doc
tor opens his head, takes out a little
piece of metal and the man begins
at once to walk and talk. Or it might
be in the case of a woman who was
for Possibly the Last Im
portant Battle of Revolution.

Thirteen-Hour Flight Across
Ocean an Early Possibility
Washington, July 6 That it will
soon be possible to fly across the At
lantic ocean in a heavier-than-air ma
chine in thirteen hours is the assertion
of Dr. Alexander Graham Bell. Inventor
of the telephone, in communication to
the National Geographical Society, of
which he was formerly president.
"The distance from Newfoundland
to Ireland is less than 2,000 miles,"
said Dr. Bell. "This means that if
you go at 100 miles an hour you wrill
cross the Atlantic in twenty hours,
less than a duj.
"We have flying machines that go
at a greater speed than that- We al
ready have machines that could cross
the ocean If their engines could keep
going twenty hours.
"At an elevation of two miles In the
air there is a constant wind blowing
in the general direction of Europe,
having a velocity of 25 to 50 miles an
hour. Besides, the air is rarer at that
beigbt and a machine can fly faster.
"f)ur best machines should be able
to cross the Atlantic in thirteen
