In regard to fresh air and oxygen he has a peculiar belief. He holds no 
particular views with regard to the use of oxygen but thinks that an electric 
fan, with a rapidly moving current of air, is very important. He thought that 
as the fresh air goes by the nose it is of benefit. I spoke of the possibility 
of the sound of the fan acting as a suggestion, and also the possibility of its 
quieting influence due to the effect upon the heat regulation in cooling the 
face by the air as it passed by, 
h-iectro-magnecic therapy.- mile in 3oston a year ago, Dr. Llende was very 
enthusiastic about a new electro-magnetic therapy that he had been using and 
was very anxious to have me see it. V.hen in Zurich I went with him to the 
Institute Salus where they treat patients regularly by this method and met the 
man who had invented the apparatus, Mr. Mailer. Evidently Mr. Müller is used 
to giving demonstrations for the uninitiated. He showed me a number of pre 
liminary experiments, which seemed very striking, but I found tlxat the results 
were not unusual for a magnetic field for the amount of current used. The magnet 
ms a laminated bar about 7 centimeters square and about 22 centimeters long, 
.^ade up of sheet iron and paper, through which was passed a heavy current of 
40 amperes at 110 volts, with a frequency of 100 per second. Mr. Müller made 
a numocr of experiments with iron nails and iron powder and then placed these 
iron nails and powder in a glass Petri dish and interposed a bar of aluminum 
between the magnet and nails. This produced a very peculiar effect on the 
figures formed by the powder. Finally an iron rod, some 6 inches long and 
1-1/2 inches in diameter, was placed on top of the magnet, and on top of this 
iod was put a ring which was a little larger than the rod and perhaos 3/8 of 
an inch thick. This fell in a rotary spiral rather than straight down. An 
aluminum ring of the sane size did not fall. If placed at the bottom of the 
iron rod and the current closed, the aluminum ring will be shot up into the air
