Medical Expert Declares Sleeping Sickness Old 111 PHILADELPHIA. (UP)--Dr. Ot- tcrbein Dressier, professor ot pa- lUolosy at Osteopalhic Hospital here, ridicules the belief that sleeping sickness has developed only during recent years. Tlie disease, even i" epidemic form, has bee nrcliably reported as far back as 1712 in Germany. Dr. Diessler said. The physician also scoffs at the theory that sleeping sickness is a separate disease. "Tt'.e ultimate outcome of a case of sleeping sickness dci>ends largely u]ton the location and extent of damage done to the brain substance," he asserted. "This damage is caused by a new growth of cells about the blcod vessels in the brain. "It the parl of the brain nfTect- cd controls the heart or respiration, death is sudden, if the parl affected supplies certain muscles of the body, these muscles are paralyzed. "Because there arc so many dillerent parts o[ the brain, each supplying a ditlcrcnt part of the Lody, there can be many different • forms 'an dmanifestations of sleep- V inrr' sickness."
