California Professor Solves Problem

Berkeley. Cal.—Results of experi
ments conducted by the bureau of
animal industry of the State Agricul
tural Experiment station here, under
the direction of Dr. C. M. Haring,
with a view to making the raising of
pork a profitable industry in this state
has been officially announced by Direc
tor Wickaon, of the station here.
The tests were conducted following
an appropriation of $16,000 by the
state legislature, starting last June,
following a report from the state vet
erinarian. declaring that a very small
part of the pork consumed in this
state was raised locally. Following a
statement that the industry was un
profitable mainly because of heavy
losses through cholera, an appropria
tion was made to conduct tests in se
curing a serum. The report of results
of the experiments was as follows:
“Careful and persistent attention to
preventive measures, such as quaran
tine, disinfection, proper feeding,
etc., on the part of the farmers gener
ally would no doubt result in material
reduction in the yearly losses from
hog cholera. The importance of ob
serving these precautions cannot be
“However, as it is regarded as im
practicable to enforce a general and
completely effective quarantine, the
bureau of animal industry has endeav
ored for years to find a medicine or
serum which could be used for pre
venting hog cholera, or for curing
hogs sick of that disease.
“It is a well-known fact that hogs
which have recovered from hog chol
era are thereafter immune from the
disease. The experiment of the bu
reau of animal industry resulted in the
discovery that when such immunes
are injected with the blood from a
sick hog, ’the immune is not made
sick, but as a result of this infection
its blood acquires the power to protect
other hogs from hog cholera.

47 separate farms, were treated. The
problem has finally been solved.”
Following orders from the state au
thorities, the new serum used as a re
sult of the experiments is to be sold
by the board of regents of the univer
