P. Morgan, the elder, was the central figure in the famous Pujo investigation of the “money trust”, has a Morgan appeared before a committee of congress. This fact has lent ad ditional drama to the presence of John Pierpont Morgan, head of Changes Which Occur in Body When Folk Are Growing Old Jy LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. TALLEYRAND said. “Everybody wants to live long, but nobody wants to be old.” But you can’t have both wishes. Old age is a physiological |j§P reverse Processes — ■' - meaning it was Dr. Clendening a change of all the organs of the body, as contrasted with “minor in volution", in which a single organism was concerned. In general, the changes which oc cur in the body in old age consist in atrophy and a replacement of paren chymatous tissues with connective or interstitial tissues. Specifically, changes in the accommodation of the eye are the first signs of old age; next, change in the color of the hair, as well as destruction of many hair follicles, causing partial or complete baldness.* Gradual loss of teeth from root atrophy is next. Height is re duced-old people shrink in all di mensions. The atrophy of the carti lages of the back tends to make a stooping posture. General weight de creases. The elasticity of the skin Is lost. There is a diminution of sex potency. The joints become stiffened. The arteries harden and become tor How Children Are Jested For Tubercular Symptoms fly LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. TUBERCULOSIS, as we said yes terday. virtually always begins in childhood. The childhood form of tuberculosis is, however, entirely different from , the adult form, ■ ■■-■-- . - and somewhat diagnose. It is not accompanied heeding from |l||jjk noon fever and pleurisies. out, supposes that the child Dr. Clendening has a tubercu lous infection in a lymph node in the chest, which is called the “pri mary complex”, and can usually be demonstrated with the X-ray. if and when the tuberculosis develops into the adult form. During childhood the disease is confined very largely to the lymph nodes of the chest. During the childhood period this form of tuberculosis gives very few prorhinent symptoms. The most noticeable thing is that the child is generally under par, 'under,-weight. easily fatigued, and subject to periods of acute Illness associated with temperature, and usually unex plained. The large lymph nodes around the base the lung may cause a cough on account of pres sure, but the cough does not pro duce any expectoration. In examining such a child, the number of sdgns which are evident on listening to thj chest or per cussing the chest are very few. In fact, if it were not for two diagnostic aids it would be almost impossible to recognize tuberculosis during this childhood period. That it is important to recognize it is evident, because the cure of Fletcher Glass Costigan Norbeck Townsend the powerful House of Morgan, before the senate committee in vestigating banking practices. Seven senators comprise the judge and jury sitting, in Washington, during the testimony of Morgan and other prominent financiers. The judge is Senator Duncan W. Fletcher of Florida, chairman of tuous. There is a definite change In the excursion of the chest and, hence, chronic bronchitis is common. There is diminution in the digestive juices In men. changes in the prostate gland cause difficulties in urination. With this there go perfectly defi nite changes in mental activity, a process of recession from the world. Opposition to new ideas; gradual loss of memory and power of attention. Old people tend to be sleepless at night and sleepy in the daytime. Stubbornness, suspiciousness, “a fall of the ethical level”, sometimes ten dencies to emotionalism, are well known outward manifestation* of gradual inner organic change. All this is entirely physiological, and not disease in the real sense at all. But it is no great wonder that mankind does not contemplate en trance into this state with any de gree of happiness. Perhaps the most terrible passage in all English lite’rature is Jonathan Swift’s account of the Struldbrugs. who lived in Laputa: “Sometimes a child happens to be born with a red circular spot on the forehead, an in fallible mark that it will never die." I commend to all those who are at tempting to extend their span of life, the tenth chapter, “The Voyage to Laputa”, in “Gulliver’s Travels”. EDITOR’S NOTE: Six pamphlets by Dr. Clendening can now be ob tained by sending 10 cents in coin. Tor each, and a self-addressed envelope stamped with a three-cent stamp, to Dr. Logan Clendening, in care of this paper. The pamphlets are: “Indigestion and Constipation," “Re ducing and Gaining," “Infant Feed ing,” "Instructions for the Treatment of Diabetes," “Feminine Hygiene” and “The Care of the Hair and Skin.” tuberculosis largely depends upon taking it at the earliest possible stage. F'or that reason the Tuber culosis association is making a spe cial effort to detect all cases in the childhood period. • • • The two diagnostic tests referred to above are the X-ray and the tuberculin test. The tuberculin test is an accurate and safe method of determining whether a patient is in fected with the tubercle bacillus, or ever has been. Its value “for diag nostic purposes is largely confined to children, because after the age of 12. on account of the widespread preva lence of tuberculous Infection, nearly all people react positively. The test is harmless and is made by rubbing a substance called "tuberculin” into the skin of the arm. Tuberculin is a liquid, containing no germs, living or dead; all have been filtered out, and it cannot cause infection. The doctor can tell by the appearance of the skin three to five days after the test, whether or not the child has been infected with tuberculosis. The X-ray enables the physician to see changes caused by the disease in the lungs or the lymph nodes at the root of the lung. Tuberculosis causes increased density of the tissues and enlargement of these nodes, and the changes are made evident on the X-ray plgte. With these two means it Is possi ble to examine whole schools of chil dren and weed out the ones who seem to be Infected. The Massachu setts state department of health has been doing this for the last seven years. During the last year they have examined 48.006 grade pupils * and 8,700 high school pupils, . One per cent of the grade pupils and 1.2 per cent of the high school pupils were shown to have early childhood tuberculosis. It is to be hoped that these meth ods may be applied ali over the United States, and that by so doing, the menace of tuhwculosia may be further reduced. the committee; the jurors are Senators James S.
