Simpson Memorial Ends
Fifth Year Qf Research

A widow's memorial to her hus-
band has proved of inestimable value
to hundreds of patients suffering
from a long dreaded disease, for
which satisfactory treatments have
only recently been developed.
The memorial is the Thomas
Henry Si{pson Institute for Medical
Research,\ which has just completed
its fifth year in operation. It was
five years ago today that Dr. Cyrus
C. gturgis assumed his duties as di-
rector of the organization.
An attack on pernicious anem-ia
is the basic purpose of the Memorial
and, since its operation was begun,
one method of treatment has been
greatly refined and an entirely new
preparation for. the cure ofr the dis-
ease has been formulated. Further
improvement of the two treatments
is the chief project at the present
time. More than 500 patients with
pernicious anemia have been stud-
Thp new treatmnent cor sists in the
administration of a powder formed
from dessicated, defatted hog's sto-
mach. An attempt is being made
to concentrate and study the vital
elements of this preparation which
is manufactured, under the trade
name of "Ventriculin," by P a r k e,
.Davis and company of Detroit. Each
batch of the product is inspected and
certified by the staff of the Institute.
Liver extracts form the principle
item in the other form of treatment.
This has been greatly concentrated
and is now administered intraven-
ously with greatly improvedresults.
The discovery that some of the liver
ingredients were of assistance in the
treatment of the disease was first
made about 1926 by a group of Har-
vard doctors but has since been
greatly refined and perfected.
The project began, in the mind
of the Detroit iron manufactUrer, as
a children's hospital. bften, before
his death from pernicious anemia in
1923, he had discussed this plan
with his wife, but shortly before his
death, he determined to leave this
entirely to the judgment of Mrs.
Simpson. It was she who determin-'
ed the ultimate character of the In-
stitute' for which she gave to the
MacDonald to
Cofer with
Irish President

University a fund of more than $40,-
The site chosen, near the ,hospi-
tal, was the gift of Robert P. L-
mont, '91, and was originally plan-
ned for an addition to the Univer-
sity observatory. But the donor con-
sented that the land should be turn-
ed over to the new Institute.
The final offer of the funds and
the site was made to the Board of
Regents of the University on Nov.
20, 1924.
By the terms of the agreement,
"the activities of the Institute are
to be devoted, primarily, to the study
of pernicious anemia, the alleviation
of the suffering of persons afflicted
with that disease, and thediscovery
of a cure for the same." An addi-
tional clause provided that, should
a permanent cure for anemia be
found, the Institute would be turned
to an investigation of some other
disease, to be designated by a spe-
cial committee of the Medical school.
A constantly increasing reputa-
tion has come to the Institute since
it first began its project.,During the
first year of operation, 213 return
visits were recorded. In the fscal
year just concluded, more than 1,000
patients returned for treatment and

WASHINGTON, July 14.(AP)-=
President Hoover, in a letter to Sen-
ator Borah, of Idaho, said today
he, did not assume N the agreement
recently reached between European
nations was for the purpose of
affecting "combined action of our
debtors," but stated that if this
was the case, he did "not propose
that the American people shall be
pressed into any line of action."'
The President's letter discloaed
that Senator Borah had inquired of
the President through Secretary
Stimson, as to the effect on the Uni-
ted States of recent agreements in
In reply, Mr.- Hoover affirmed that
the United States had not been con-
sulted regarding any of the agree-
ments reached at the Lausanne Con-
ference. ',
'U. S. Not Committed'
He said the United States was not
"in any way committed to any such
agreements" as were reached con-
cerning either debts or reparations.-
The letter follows in full:
"My dear Mr. Senator:
"I have your inquiry this morn-
ing, through Secretary Stimson, as
to the effect on the United States
of recent agreements in Europe.
"Our people are, of course, grati-
fied at the settlement of the strict-
ly European problem of reparations
or any of the other political or eco-
nomic questions that have impeded
European recovery. Such action, to-
gether with the real progress in dis-
armament, will contribute greatly to
world stability.

WASHINGTON, July 14.-(AP)-
A series of. mind changing Acts byr
Congressional and police authori-c
ties this evening resulted in a com-i
pany of marines being dispatchedI
to keep order on the capitol grounds, i
where hundreds of bonus-seeking
veterans trudged wearily back andc
forth, but in the end the ex-soldiersr
were left as before.f
The marines were withdrawn al-t
most immediately and their pres,
ence was called a misunderstanding.
Vice-Rresident Curtis, Speaker Gar-
ner, Rear-Admiral Henry V. Butler,t
commandant of the local n a v yt
ards, and police superintendentG
Glassford then conferred at length.
The upshot was that Glassford or-
dered the capitol grounds cleared.E
Demonstrators Continue k
Before he could get reinforcements
to put the order in effect, Senatorr
Bingham (R., Conn.), interceded,c
Glgssford reversed the orderi and
permitted the long, weary trudging
of the demonstrators to continue asc
it had for two nights and two daysa
past. The men were not allowed tot
lie down but were kept on the movec
by blue coats.i
They sang and chatted as they
walked, a .group of them at intervals
slipping off to rest a while just offI
the capitol premises.
Hoover Word Intimated
There was a fairly strong intima-I
tion that Senator Bingham had beenr
in touch with President Hoover be-I
fore he approached Glassford. Thef
police heads' statement to Vice-Pres-t

police to keep up the strong guardI

Duplicity Charged to
Hitlerites, Nationalists
BERLIN, July 14.-(AP)-Charg-

ing the Hitlerites and the National-
ists with duplicity for permitting
the Von Pape Cabinet to carry on
a foreign polity of international rec-
onciliation which these parties once
opposed violently, the Social- Dem-
ocratic Party is appealing to the
voters to fight to the finish "for
Democracy and Socialism" in the
Reichstag election on July 31.
The Socialist Party, which rep-
resents the bulk of Germany's la-
boring class, was surpassed by Hit-
ler's Nationalists as Germany's larg-
est political party in the Diet elec-
tions of May. In Berlin, however,
it nosed out the Communists for
first place.
While it never had a followingas
large as Hitler's, the party took the
reins of Government in hand after
the evolution, assuming the task of
making Germany a democracy.

Attempted to Hold

Manuel Azana Is Termed
Great Man of Present
Contrary to the reports of foreign
newspapers, King Alfonso of Spain
did not submit willingly to the man-
ifestation F a g a i n s t the Monarchy,
Prof. Antionie G. Solalinde declaed
in a lecture yesterday.
Professor Solalinde was closely
connected w i t h the Republican
movement in Spain, and was exiled
from his native country for partici-
pation in anti-monarchist work.
Continues Efforts
Alfonso did everything within his
power to arouse the army to his sup-
port, continued Professor Solalinde,
ven after he had embarked on his
warship on his way into exile.
The popular sentiment was too
strongly against him, however, and
even though the generals were still
behind the king, it was thought dan-
gerous to his safety to attempt any1
resistance while he remained in theL
"The really 'great man of the pre-l
sent -Republic is Manuel Azana," de-r
clared Professor Solalide. Azana is
a writer of second rank, but before1
the change in government he wast
comparatively unknown. He came
into the limelight when h took pos-
session of the ministry of war on theY
same night in which the Republicj
was proclaimied.t
Retains Army Officers t
More than 23,000 army officerst
had been retained by Alfonso-
mostly for political purposes and
without any duties-and Azana's1
first step was to reduce this number1
to 7,000 . Although criticized for his
violence, he is respected because het
had thought deeply about all the<
problems of present-day Spain and
has a fitting solution fo them. 1
Public offices today are filled by
the intellectual men of the country,
Professor Solalinde said. Foreign1
embassies have been filled with these1
men as well as home offies.
One of the first great Accomplish-
ments of the new regime was 'the
creation of 7,000 schools during the
first .year. Under, the old regime
only 11,128 schools were established
during the years between 1908 and
1930. Other. advancements along
educational lines have also been go-
ing along at a rapid pace.
The Republic has declared itself
not in favor of any particular reli-
gion, but is giving every individual.

Compromise with
State; De Valera

Accepts Invitation

LONDON, July 14.-(AP)-Prime
minister R a m s a y MacDonald of
Great Britain has offered President
Eamon De Valera of the Irish Free
State an invitation to come to Lon-
don to discuss differences between
the two countries. It was understood
that Mr. De Valera had accepted the
ipvitation and would come to Lon-
don today.
The invitation to the' Republican
president resulted from a conference
at No. 10 Downing street last night,
when the Prime minister, lower
chancellor and the attorney-gener-
al discussed with William Norton,
chairman of the Free State party
and English labor leader.
Mr. MacDonald authorized Mr.
Norton to tell President De Valera
that if the latter wished to discuss
the situation the Prime Minister
would be happy to meet him iii Lon-
don. The Irish labor leader immed-
iately communicated with De Valera
who accepted the invitation.
Norton said after the conference
that he explained the "terms of a
suggested compromise" with Mac-
Donald but he declined to disclose
its details to the press.

Al Smith May
Take Stump
For Lehman,
Former New York Gover-
nor Expected to Back
State Candidate
NEW YORK, July 4.-(AP)-"Al"
Smith' is likely to jump into his old
role of campaign spellbinder this
fall, but on behalf of the Democratie
gubernatorial candidate, rather than
the Roosevelt-Garner ticket.
Since ,his last public announce-
ment, "I shall support the Demo-
cratic party," there' has been much
speculation about what part, if any,
he will take in the campaign.
His omission of the names of Gov.
Roosevelt and Speaker Garner from
his statement of party loyalty led
to the supposition he would be more
a spectator than an actor in the
next act of the 1932 political drama.
But one of his close associates said
today that Smith has an active in-
terest in seeing Lieut. Gov. Herbert
H. Lehman nominated for the post
he himself held for four terms, and
then relinquished to Roosevelt.
If Lehman is nominated, it was
further stated, Democracy's 1928
standard bearer very possibly might
do some active campaigning for him.

concluded recently at Lausanne and
that of course it is not a party to
nor in any way committed to any
such agreements."
"While I do not assume it to be
the purpose of any of these agree-

our debtors, if it shall be so inter-

After a brief recess for lunch, they

an hour broke up in a fast depd-
