NAYBRAIHE

The Rockefeller Foundation will
continue to finance the search for
a harmless form of the narcotic
morphine, on which the Univer-
sities of Michigan and Virginia are
co-operating, f o r another three
years, it has been announced.
This investigation of the chem-
istry and pharmacology of mor-
phine, with the object of removing
the dangerous characteristics of
the drug, is being carried out un-
der the auspices of the National
Research Council through its drug
addiction committee.
With the funds originally avail-
able this committee mapped out a
three-year program. At the half-
way mark in this program, Dr.
Obesity Not Result
of Gland Troubles,
Says Local Doctor
That obesity is not an internal
disease in any sense of the word,
but rather the result of a greater
intake than release of energy, is
the opinion of Dr. L. H. Newburgh,
of University hospital, who claims
this theory is rapidly supplanting,
the old one that fat people are
obese because of glandular difficul-
ties.
Dr. Newburgh points out that
some people who go on diets find
that at the end of the week they
have gained weight. This is due
to the fact that "there is a. pro-s
gressive retention of water by the
body and that weight added in
this way conceals the loss of weight
by the destruction of tissue."
However, he points out, if the
subject will wait not a mere week,
but a month., the weight: will de-.
crease when that caused by water
declines. Het verifies this state-
ment by using as an example atpat-
ient who five months ago weighed
552 pounds and who was declared
by many doctors as a victim of an
internal disease, but when put up-
on a careful diet, lost 165 pounds
in that period of time.
"Why does one eat more than
he needs? Because thenprimitive
instinct (appetite) is. no longer
obeyed or because it has been per-
sistently disregarded so long that
it has become dulled and notifies
its host too late that the bodily
needs have been satisfied.
"Obese persons commonly tell the
physician that they do not overeat.
Frequently they are telling the
truth as they see it, for they have
made the mistake of measuiring
their intake of energy in terms of
volume. Analysis will show that
they prefer h i g h1y concentrated
food, so that the amount that, will
disten4 the stomach to the point,
of satisfaction contains far too
much energy."

Charles W. Edmunds and Dr. Nath-
an B. Eddy, in immediate charge
of the work here, reported satisfac-
tory progress. Nearly 100 new mor-
phine derivatives and closely relat-
ed substances have been prepared
at the University of Virginia and,
examined here. Reports on the
chemistry of these substances have
appeared from time to time in the
American Journal of Chemistry,
and the Journal of Pharmacology
will publish shortly two papers on
some of the pharmacological re-
sults.
On the basis of these results the
Rockefeller Foundation has taken
over the financial responsibility for
the work and has granted to the
National Research C o u. n c i 1 the
funds for the continuance of the
work for an additional three-year
period. The sum granted by the
Rockefeller Foundation not only
will provide for the extension of
the work to Jan. 1, 1936, bu will
allow increase in the yearly bud-
get so that the investigation can
be pushed even more vigorously.

His rule was to buy only encycl

the term was a broad one; it h
eluded any book that he wished
read over or even to consult mo
than once."
It has been said by those wl
,know him intimately, that Profe
sor Cross can read a pfge over on

presented on the page, so remar
able is- his memory. He has an i
exfhaustible supply of ,anecdot(
and his stories about historic
characters have always been
source of immense interest amoi
his students.
He likes to take motor tou
around Europe and spends most
his summers abroad, either in En
land or on the continent. 01
summer he went to Tahiti, in t)
South Seas, to visit a former Ha
yard classmate.
He likes golf, playing a gar

shots. For pure recreation he rea
books upon historical subjects.
He is chairman of the Michigz

Is Best Airship Ever

Constructed; Seek Possible
Construction Errors.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.-(IP)-
Criticism of the world's largest air-
ship-the Akron-was met_, today
be ore the House Naval Committee
wi h the statement that "she is the

best airship ever constructed."
Rear Admiral William A. Moffet,
chief of the Navy Bureau of Aero-
nautics, made that answer to pub-
lished reports of defects in the Ak-
ron at the opening of an investi-
gation of her speed, weight, and
safety.
Rep. James V. McClintic, of Okla-
homa, ranking Democrat on the
committee, and sponsor of the in-
vestigation, said his only interest
was to determine whether her effi-
ciency was impaired and whether
she "offers the safety she should."
He recalled dirigible accidents of
the Roma, the Shenandoah, and
the R-101, and said:
"I felt it the duty of this commit-
tee to see that no errors had oc-
curred in construction of the Akron
which might be duplicated in the
siter ship."
The sister ship to the Akron is
now being built.
