YOU FISHERMAN Fish that You Catch Will Cook them Tables for Ladies AVENUE IS OPPOSITE OUR PI.ACI[ CONTAGIOUS HEALTH By Dr. Edwin E. Slosson Director, Science Service, Washington \Vhen P, ob Ingersoll v, as Iccturhag" on ':The Mistakes of Moses" he was asked sarcastically if hc thonght hc could do any" better if he were runnin~ the unlxcrse. J]e replied "'Yes," and when challenge:! to specify in what particular he oulA im!lrove oa the present administration, hc answered that if he were the .\hni;~hty he would make health contaglous instead of dis- L,'[~.S C. This, like othdr 0f his witty retorts, will not stand close scrntin-. In (:tct, rtccnt resear,ghcs idicatc that the pro- posed irllDrotelllcnt is ah-ca@ ill c,x- istcncc, and has been for ai~cs. ~,s wc now knoxx tilt, nficrolx, s arc not all enemies of I',~g:n. Som~, arc his7 'active allies and they cartav o11 war(are ill his defense ill m;lch tilL' sa;nc way as the disease-pro{lucin.~ kin,.l~ do against him. A French 1/olo~ist, d']Ie:'elle, dis- co\ere3 in 1017 that hactc;{a are prey- ed npon bv solneth{ng ',-el smaller than thelilsc.]ves; somethin~ too small to he seen \v;th aiD fiilcroseol,C or tO l)t' i]]- tercd out from a fluid, for they will pass even through tile l,orus of t}orce- la!n. "Hactcriophages," hc calls tilt'ill "bacterla-eaters." The:" art' so minute that it svouhl seem that they inust be- long to the field o( ebemistry rather than biology', yet they ;:row and prop- agate and maintain a definite indivi- duality like living creatures. They arc normally present in our digestive tube and protect ns by breaking down and dissolving inimical bacteria. The great- er the number of the invading hosts the faster the baeteriopages mnltiply and the fiercer they become in fight, until finally they have overcome the infection. They may then in the ttt!sh of their victory carry their campaign into the enemy's country a~nd cnre others of the eonnnnnity. The sick persons who have been cnred thns be- come carriers of the cure and cen- ters of healing infect{o'~ so starting an epidemic of health. As d'Herelle says in his new book "Defense of the Organism :" "A sick animal propagates the dis- ease. An animal in a state of active resistance propagates immnnity. These few words stun up the whole history of epidemics." Dr, d'Herelle may be over-sanguine in thinking that he has seized the whole secret of epidemics, but his dis- covcries are iu line with tile modern methods of medical practice, which is to enlist the aid of bacteria in our defense against bacteria and to pro- mote civil war in the Kingdom of tile Protozoa. \Ve have already in our midst an army of deienders in tile form of white corpuscles of the blood and these may be multiplied and en- c0uragcd to greater exertions by med- ical means. \Ve may counteract a toxin with an antitoxin. \Ve may, as Mctchinkoff advised, colonize the colon with the benign bacteria that prodnee lactic acid, in place of those that pro- duce poisons. \Ve may infest para- sites with minor parasites. \Ve may set the nltrmnicrobe to catch the mi- crobe.
