Chicago, May 25 (ANP)— For
tho second time in five years, Dr.
Georgo C. Branche, chief of the
Veterans’ Administration facility
neuropsychiatric service at
Tuskegee, addressed the annual
convention of the American Psy
chiatric association last week at
tho Palmer House on "Therapeutic
Quartan Malaria in the Treatment
of Neurosyphilte among Negroes.”
Dr. Branche, himself a member
of the association, first attract
ed international attention at the
1934 convention when he told the
assembled psychiatrists of his
radically new method of treating
mental disorders brought about by
syphilis. He address last week
concerned recent developments in
hi>3 specialty.
The Tuskegee physician’s treat
ment was developed after it was
learned that neurosyphilis among
Negroes could not be treated with
the commonly used tertian mala
ria. This was because there had
been developed a general racial
immunity to this form of malaria
through generations of living in
warm areas where this disease is
Dr. Branche reasoned that
quartan malaria a stronger and
more virulent form of the disease
which was more or less foreign
I to Negroes, might be substituted.
Results were amazing. Of those
inoculated with the quartan mal
aria treatment, 93 per cent, reeat
ed favorably as contrasted with
only 14 per cent, who reacted to
inoculation with chills and fever
when thetertian variety was used.

A cheese SQufTlf. at its golden best,
comes as near to resembling food for
the Gods as any dish for mere mortals
could. It looks as light and Insubstan

the first delicious mouthful reveals
this aristocrat among cheese dishes as
substantial and satisfying — a food
eminently fitted for mortals, and
hungry mortals at that.
The true secret of the success of the

and ten minutes at least, at a mod

remain fluffy and upright—a joy to
the eye as well as the palate.
The selection of the proper cheese
to serve as the main ingredient of the
dish is important to the success of
the souffld also. Thoroughly cured
American cheese, with that faint
