Jewish Physician Startles Medical Convention with Invention


The most interesting event of today’s session of the convention of the American Medical Association, which is being held here, was the demonstration of the invention of Dr. Singer of St. Louis. The invention is a red electric lantern, which enables the observance of the inside cells of a living heart. The invention was enthusiastically praised by the thousands of physicians who are attending the convention, and who believe that it will now be easier to find the exact location of a disease and cure it.

Dr. Singer is a graduate of the Medical College of Washington University and is at the present time prominent in St. Louis as a specialist on heart diseases.

That 65 out of 100 sufferers from Diabetes are Jewish was the statement made at the convention by Prof. Albert Jaslin of Boston General Hospital. He declared that this was a result, not of the food that Jews eat, but because they are usually fat and eat more than is necessary.
