Gen. James Simmons Tells
Of Army Medical Corps Work

Work of the Army Medical Corps
in keeping our men fit to fight was
described by Gen. James S. Simmons,
Army chief of preventive medicine,
in the third of a series of public
health dedicatory lectures yesterday.
"Prevention of disease among troops
is as basic a need as is the supply
of weapons," Gen. Simmons said. He
illustrated this point by telling of an
outbreak of malaria in 1916 which
prevented a decisive Macedonian
campaign and probably lengthened
World War I. Repellants and in-
secticides are now beginning to prove
their worth in preventing malaria,
he pointed out.
Home Front Threatened
Although threat of disease is worse
in the tropics and in invaded coun-
tries it is never absent from the home
front, Gen. Simmons pointed out. In-
secticides have been developed to
help combat certain diseases and
"are likely to prove the greatest con-
tribution to the human race which

will come out of this war," Gen. Sim-
mons said.
Because of widespread preventive
work, not a single epidemic of any
major, disease has occurred in the
Army during this war, Gen. Simmons
Vaccine Developed
A vaccine which has proved re-
markably effective when used against
influenza was developed by Dr. Thom-
as Francis of the School of Public
Health and will be used widely. The
Army's preventive medicine, depart-
ment has borrowed Dr. Francis for a
month and sent him abroad to consult
with doctors on the field in North
Africa and Italy regarding jaundice
and respiratory diseases.
Commissions of civilian doctors
have been sent abroad to such places
as New Guinea and North Africa to
investigate diseases on the fighting
fronts, Gen. Simmons said. These
men are now back and the results
of their work are now helping to pre-
vent or control diseases in the Army.
Venereal Diseases Decrease
Venereal diseases always increase
during wartime, Gen. Simmons stat-
ed, but prevalence of infection in the
Army today is the lowest in history
and the rate is going down. In the
Army, contrary to public opinion,
venereal diseases are no more preval-
ent than in comparable civilian
groups, he said.
The lowest point on the venereal
disease record of World War I is
higher than the highest point in
World War II, Gen. Simmons pointed
out. In all, the death rate from
disease in this war is one-tenth that
of World War I, he added.
French Club To Hold
Informal Meeting
The French Club will hold an in-
formal meeting at 8 p.m. today in
the Union.
In announcing the meeting Prof.
Charles E. Koella, faculty adviser of
the club, said that "a special invi-
tation is extended to foreign students
on the campus, who would like to
speak French and who are interested
in meeting American students."
