Says Potentilities. Scarcely
Have Been Developed;
Predicts Growinig Role
By HARRY L. SONNEBORN
Immunology, the scienc of the de-
fensive reactions of the body, is less
than a century old. and although it
has already made remarkable con-
tributions to 'human welfare, its po-
tentialities are believed to have been
One of the outstanding workers to-
day in the field of immunology is Dr.
Reuben L. Kahn, director of clinical
laboratories at the University Hos-
pital. Dr. Kahn is at present carrying
on research in this field with the
financial aid of the Aaron Mendel-
son Memorial Trust Pund. He is
the author of . Tissue Immunity"
published in 1936, and has written a
numbcr of reports of his work for
scientific journals, receiving for one
such article the thousand-dollar
award of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science.
Skin More Than Mere Fall
"Heretofore," says Dr. Kahn, "im
munity implied 'humoral' or antibody
immunity exclusively. In all prob-
ability all tissue cells have defensive
powers, and surface tissue carries
an extra burden of defense. We
know now that the skin is more than
a mere wall. It is a. defensive organ
in the fullest sense."
Dr. Kahn believes that it is impos-
sible to understand immunity as a
whole without understanding the role
of the tissues in immunity. In a
broad sense, therefore, Dr. Kahn's ex-
periments aim to reach a better un-
derstanding of immunology as a
Defensive esuxcs Grow
"As soon as certain bacteria began
to adapt themslvs to a parasitic
existence, the bodies of the hosts
presumably began to develop def en-
sive measures against them," he says.
"These measures have evidently been
insufficient to exterminate pathogenic
microorganisms fromn the world. The
reason undoubtedly is that the latter
in turn began to develop defenses of
their own. All cells, either bac-
terial or specialized body cells, pos-
sess-the function of defense."
Becomes More Imprtant
Dr. Kahn points out that immun-
ology is destined to play a far more
important role in medicine than it
has in the past. "Note, for example,
the increasing tendency toward the
injection of substances for thera-
peutic purposes," he says.
"Ju st; as therapeutic substances
when givens by mouth might have
somie efect onl the digestive function,
similar substances when injcted into
some tissue or directly into the. blood
stream might have soni ffc (ft on the
immunologic function. Under these
conditions, the working toward some
unified concept of the immunologic
function is obviously highly desirable.
May Cure Allergies
"Be sides developing additional arm-
aments in combatting disease-pro-
ducing microorganisms and extending
the supply of specific vaccines and
scrums against them," said Dr. Kahn
"immunology must devise methods for
overcoming undesirable reactions re-
sultin ; from thc injection of these
subst ance. In addition, immfiuno logy
inust find ways and means for the
preventioni and cure of allergies re-
sulting from drugs, pollens, foods and
"Our studies," says Dr. Kahn, "have
called forth both praise and criticism,
which is a good sign. Controversy
is imporant in the enlargement of
Knxowledge in any field, and the more
rcontroversy we have in immunology.
tbe closer we will come to thne under-
standing of the mysterious laws that
govern the defensive reactions of the

To Increase Efficiecy
(COl tIn uvd h onki-lage 1)
first news of which James Mills,j
dean of (Al')'s foreign correspondents,
sneaked out of Ethiopia for a world'
beat. United Press' false armistice
report and (AP)'s adamant refusal to
publish in the face of frantic in-
quniries from hundreds of sweating
editors, are by now many more than
twice-told stories in newspaperj
Strangest and most important, per-
haps, of all (/P) scoops, were the Will 1
Rogers-Wiley Post crash pictures in
1935. At the time OP)'s new transcon-
tinental Wirephoto had been in serv-
ice only a few months. Died-in-the-
woolers snorted at the 10,000-mile
network of high fidelity circits taken
over from A.T.&T. for $500,000. Far '
above the general din of disapproval
sounded the highfalutin Bronx cheers
of Publisher Roy Howard and Pub-
lisher W. R. Hearst, both WA) mem-
)ers who had turned down Wirephoto
for their own agencies, United Press,
and International News, respectively.
But UPi) laughed last. Films of the
crash made by Alaskan residents were
flown to San Francisco by plane and
flashed by Wirephoto to 26 district
stations. From San Francisco to the
Audson River the pictures raced in
eight minutes flat ! And they carried
with them an epoch-making develop-
ment. Copy deferred to pictures as
action photos of Mussolini, Haile Se-
lassie, Governor Merriam and Lou
Gehrig, crowded onto the front page.
The system was speeded up. Three
weeks ago Anthony Eden resigned
from the British Cabinet. A waiting
photographer snapped him as he left
No. 10 Downing St. The following day,
a student newspaper separated by the
Atlantic and almost 4,000 miles dis-
ant, The Michigan Daily, carried a
picture of Eden as hie departed hi,;

For a long, time Webb Miller and
his United Press gang of foreign news-
hawks provoked the envy of Associat-
ed Press members with sparkling and
even brilliant coverage of foreign
news. QV)~ had always made its rec-
ords on the home grounds. But the
service got to work, tightened up its
foreign staff', put Frank Evans in
charge of the whole shebang and
today (A) despatehes wash in from
abroad on flood tides.
The Associated Press, in the final
analysis, is scarcely more than the
1.300 dailies that compose it. It gets
some news itself, it gets some more
by exchange, but the main current
has its source and its mouth in the
offices of the 1.300.
