Work On Spirochaeta, Extndg
Over 35-Year Period, Has
Given Speaker Fame
Delivering the Henry Russel lec-
ture for 1929, Prof. Aldred S. War-
thin, director of the pathological
laboratories, recounted some of
his researches on Spirochaeta Pal-,
lida yesterday afternoon in Natural1
Science auditorium.
John Alexander, assistant prd-
fessor of suirgery was named as
the recipient of next year's Henry
Russel award for his contribu-
tions to the field of thoracic sur-
gery, especially concerning tuber-
culosis. Emoluments of $250 were
given both Professor Warthin and
Dr. Alexander.
Has Worked Long
Dr. Warthin, whose work on
spirochaeta has progressed for
more than 35 years and has placed
him among the authorities in this
field, narrated the results of his I
laboratory researcheson the prob-
lem of proving the causative action
of, spirochaeta on syphilis by per-
ecting a method of islating the
micro-organism for purposes of ex-
amination. Doctors handling pa-
tients with all the characteristics.a
of possessing this disease were in-
ale definitely to diagnose the
eases beca'k e of their inability to
locate the spirochaeta.
Proessor Warthin's first accom--,
plishment was to devise- a meansr
of isolatink the'spirochaeta throughl
the use of a powerful, dark-field
microscope., Following this, he im-t
proved the process of staining the'
spirochaeta, which closely resembleF
slides containing sections of the
drawn-out wire springs. At first the
process of staining took several
days, but through successive exper-
iments, Dr. Warthin and his assist-
ant are now able to complete the
staining within three hours.
Sufferers Widespread
As a result of these two principal
contributions, between 75 and 80
per cent of the patients in clinics
thought to be syphilitic are found
to be stiffering from the effects of
spirochacta pallida.
Dr. Alexander's work in tuber-
cular surgery has been extensive in
receit years, the chief results of
which have been publshed in hist
book, "The Surgery of Pulmonary
Tuberculosis." Following his grad-
uation from the University of
Pennsylvania in 1916, he took certi-
ficates from the universities oft
Lyons and Paris. He served during
the war in the medical corps, first c
at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, and
later in France with Base Hospitalr
115 at Vichy. At the close of the
war he returned to the Universityf
of Pennsylvania medical school asn
assistant instructor i surgery. He4
came to Michigan in 1920 as in-
structor dn surgery.
Only Faculty Prizes ,
TIhe Henry Russel prizes are the
only annual recognition the Uni- f
versity accords its faculty. Estab-
lished in '1920 by a bequest of

$10,000 from 'the estate of Mr. Rus-i
sel, who was a Detroit alumnus, the
fund was allowed to lie idle forl
several years. The annual income
