Cure Very Uncertain, Simpson Memo-
rial Head Maintains, As Treat-
ment Is Continuous
"Liver or kidneys diet is the only
cure that has yet been found for Per-
nicious Anemia," stated Professor C.
C. Sturgis in a lecture given yester-
day afternoon at five o'clock at the
Natural Science Auditorium: "This
cannot strictly be called a cure,"
added Professor turgis, "since the
patient must continue the treatment
throughout his life."
Professor Sturgis is director of the
Simpson Memorial Institute, which
was founded specifically for research
in the field of Pernicious Anemia.
"There is much to be discovered yet
about this disease," he stated, "be-
cause no cause has been definitely
ascertained for it." He mentioned the
fact that there are many other kinds
of anemia, some accompanying hemor-
rhage, cancer, and loss of blood. Per-
nicious Anemia is associated with
none of these. Until four years ago
the disease was incurable, but experi-
ments at Harvard at that time dis-
covered the fact that liver and kidneys
fed to the patient at the rate of one-
half poun'd a day brought about a
complete return to normal.
Affects Older Persons
"The disease occurs for the most
part in persons over forty years of
age," stated Professor Sturgis, "and
is frown to be present by the extreme
weakness and pallor of the patient."1
This liver cai be fed to the patient
raw, cooked, as an extract, or as a
powder, and is said to begin to take
active effect between three to six days
after the treatment is started. le-
covery is complee within three
"One man gained thirty-six pounds
in six weeks," the speaker said, "and
great improvement is to be seen in all
cases." He also stated that the ma-
jority of cases ,of Pernicious Anemia
occur in the Nordic races, very few
negroes or South Americans being af-
Has Serious Consequences
"In some cases the victims lose part
of their spinal cord, causing them to
lose all idea of the position of their
feet," declared the speaker, "giving
them a shambling, awkward motion
when they walk." He added that the
cause of this destruction is not
known. "The greatest cause of the3
failure of the liver treatment," he an-
nounced, "is that the patient cases

President C. C. Little, in an inter-
view yesterday, made clear that his
presentation to Governor Green of a=
plan whereby the University would
conduct a complete tax survey in
Michigan was motivated by a desire
for an equal and just distribution of
the tax burden within the state.
"I think that we all agree that the
siuation is very serious and that the
burden of taxation has increased and
is increasing so rapidly and extens-
ively as to form a real menace to the
stability of whole communities and in-
dustries not only in our state but in
every state in the union," Dr. Little
declared yesterday.
"It has been found helpful," he con-
tinued, "in one or two other localities
to have the University place all its
resources at the disposal of the people

of the state for an impartial study'
and report on the situation."
The proposed plan would entail a
thorough study of various phases of
the tax problem conducted by mem-
bers of the University faculty, espe-
cially those in the departments of
forestry, geography, education, polit-
ical science, economics and mathe-
matical statistics. The problem would
be approached from the standpoint of
origin and distribution of taxes, as-
sessment methods and the general re-
lation of taxes to the public welfare
Dr. Little made it clear that the
plan was in no way intended to be
lucrative to the University. The pro-
posal was made by him in view of
the splendid equipment and resources
that the Universityi now has to carry
on such a survey at an almost negli
gible expense.
