LOUIS <U.R>—Leading scientists of the nation sought Wednesday to devise a defense against the unchecked e.pjdemic of sleeping sickness, as the percentage of deaths increased. Figures released by the Metropolitan Health Council, organized to fight the swiftly spreading epidemic, revealed that the number of fatalities was approximately 18 per cent of the total number of victims. Since the first death July 30, the mysterious malady has claimed 128 lives and sent 755 persons to isolation wards in a dozen hospitals. Weeks of research by a veritable arm;,- of scientists hag given only limited knowledge'of the disease. Physicians have been mystified over the origin and the spreading agency of the disease germ. TWO outstanding discoveries were made, however. A woman pathologist. Dr. Margaret Smith of 'Washington university '• established proof that the disease was of the virus classification. The virus causing the present epidemic is too small to bV seen thru a microscope. ' Another significant discovery is that the disease is believed transferable to 'monkeys. After weeks of attempts to innoculate monkeys, the* Metropolitan Healtti council announced that several monkeys had developed symptoms Of the disease. Physicians pointed out that they may be near to one of their principal goals—isolation of the germ —if the" monkeys had developed the disease.

NEW YORK'STAGES MAMMOTH PARADE (Continued from Page One) that nobody now denies it." The recovery administration admits it has made mistakes and may make more, Johnson said. It does not. resent honest, constructive criticism. "But I do believe that it is right to call attention to misunderstanding and to misrepresentation and sabotage of men who "stand and who always have stood for the very reverse of what this administration is trying to do," he said. Those who hear this group's gratuitous advice Johnson said would do well to ask: "What advice was this author-, ity giving in 1927, 1928 and 1929? Under what flag does.he march?"

JAPAN TO A L^GER NAVY (pontinued from i'aga One) United States and its insular possessions. "The two countries are building only, within treaty limits," said Osifmi, "so the term 'naval race' is a misnomer." ' He recalled Swanson's statement that the American navy must be first in the world, within treaty limits. "If that is the case." said Osumi, "it does not clash with the mission.

"I am positive in the belief thai unless Japan's. existence is men aced to such an extent that forcf is the only method of defenc 0 , th« world will never find Japan iovol vcd in a war with other coun tries." Osumi lauded existing tr?atir» in that, to some extent, thej checked compititiou of capital ships and thus avoided Increased taxation. He said that thru llmi tation of types of guns, the trf* ties also prevented possibility ol some new ships becoming obsoleti thru new inventions. The navy chief reiterated .Tap an's intention of retaining the Car ollne and Marshall islands group! in the south Pacific, former Ger man possessions mandated to Jap an by the league of nations at conclusion of the world war. "The islands are of great strate- gical value in the defence of th« empire." he said. "They are with in cruising radius of Japan foi bombing planes. If they fell intc hostile hands they would be a direct menace to our safety. . "That is why we call them oui 'naval lifeline.' We do not need them for aggressive purposes, bul must retain them for our own security." He held as groundless the view of alarmists that Japan would utilize the mandate islands as a base from which to attack Hawaii. Th« American territory is 2,000 milei from the Caroline and Marshall islands, Osumi pointed out.
