German, Who Resigned As Protest Against Anti-semitism, Makes Discovery

A new discovery in the field of medicine has been made by Professor Willstaetter, until recently of the University of Munich, and now Professor of Chemistry at Heidelberg.

He has discovered a new drug, which will be known under the name Psikane. It is a parcotic like cocaine, but is superior in quality, and is free from the latter’s injurious effects.

Professor willstaetter recently resigned from the University of Munich as a protest against the anti-Semitism prevailing there.
