Doctors as War Prisoners. The articles of the Geneva Convention, adopted July 5, 1906, provide among other things that the belligerent who is foi'ced to leave the sick and wounded in the hands of the enemy must also leave a certain proportion of medical attendants and equipment and that members of the Army Medical Service who have fallen into the hands of the enemy must continue their duties, but as soon as their service can be dispensed with, they must be sent back. Just how closely the provisions of these arti- cles are being observed by the present combatants is, of course, impossible to ascertain although we hear complaints from both sides of violations of them. The German side of the question is voiced by the editor of the Deutsche medizinische Wochen- schrift in his issue for June 17, who after calling attention to the above articles, complains generic viagra made in usa that Ger- many is getting the worst of the bargain. He says that his nation has over 800,000 prisoners and has not nearly enough of the enemy's physicians to care for them so that an unjust tax is levied on its own military surgeons. He alleges that Russia has without exception retained every German surgeon captured although they have not sufficient German prisoners in that country to justify this. Speaking of the large number of Russian prisoners he states that it is particularly necessary to have Russian physicians to take care of them, partly because their knowledge of the language would facilitate their care and allow each doctor to do a good deal more work than is the case when interpreters are necessary and partly because the Russian is racially less susceptible to certain contagious diseases such as typhus than the German. Dr. Schwalbe, the editor of the journal mentioned, is, however, rabid in his hatred of everyone, belligerent and neutral alike, who does not subscribe in toto to the German views; in short, he is ineligible to membership in Dr. Meltzei-'s Medical Brotherhood, and consequent- ly his testimony against the Russians is not to be accepted without corroboration from some more pacific source. Lumbar Puncture for the Endocranial Symp- toms of Typhoid Fever. The phenomena indicative of cerebral irritation seen in the early days of typhoid fever, such as headache, mental confusion, delirium, etc., constitute one of the most unpleasant features of this affection, since the patient must be generic viagra made in usa constantly watched, and young, vigorous subjects often do violence to themselves. As a rule we have to depend on measures which re- duce the fever, such as cold applications, for com- bating this condition. At a military medical even- ing held last March in Metz (Deutsche medizlnische Wochenschrift, June 2) Schemensky reported ex- cellent results from lumbar puncture in these cases. He had attributed the symptoms in part to in- creased intracranial tension, and generic viagra made in usa the results of puncture showed this to be true for a large ma- jority of the cases. Three patients with severe headache were completely relieved and of fifteen punctured for disturbances of consciousness nine were benefited. The six who did not improve had severe pulmonary or cardiac symptoms. War and Anthropology. Whenever many varieties of mankind are brought together the local anthropologists, ethnologists, and philologists are usually found employing their gratuitous opportunities for study. This has been seen especially in world expositions. While war- fare does not necessarily entail similar opportuni- ties, the present struggle in Europe has given this chance, especially to the German scientists because of the motley character of the prisoners in the de- tention camps. generic viagra made in usa Th'.is Buschan in a communication to the Deutsche medizinische Wochenschrift for June 24 improved a leave of absence by studying anthropologically seventy-five men selected from the following races: Caucasians (four different peo- ples), Koreans, Tartars, Letts, Esthonians, Basques, Bretons and Welsh. It was found that anthropo- logical data viagra 100mg pfizer prix of the Germans were defective for pur- viagra 100mg pfizer prix 662 MEDICAL RECORD.

He believes that the government should request its medical men to make a mass investigation along the same lines. Nftufi of tUt M^fk.
