Reports of Visits to Foreign Laboratories, vol. 5 (1926-27) [Illustrated Typoscript in 7 volumes] Reproduced with the kind permission of Dr. Cecil E. Leith

Large respiration chamber. Some concern bad given a large respiration 
chamber for pressure as well as vacuum to the laboratory. (See figure 85.) 
It is very elaborate, magnificently built, electrically welded, and absolutely 
tight, so that it can be used for a respiration chamber later. He expects to 
do this. This large chamber has only recently been used for some respiration 
experiments, and it was just being tested when I was there. It is extremely 
elaborate and finely manufactured. The method of maintaining the low pressure 
automatically is extremely ingenious, and it should be possible to do a great 
deal of work with it. 
There is to be a laboratory on the Jungfrau Joch for Alpine work, but 
Professor Hess has no connection with it, I believe. 
keg,tupfe One good point which I noticed in connection with Hess was 
that he had arranged an automobile spotlight fastened to the ceiling, about 
half way back of the lecture table in the room, so that he could throw the 
light on any given piece of apparatus or a kymograph tracing, for example. 
Professor Hess and Dr. Fleisch impressed me as being an unusually good 
pair of men. Since we visited there, Dr. Fleisch has been given the honorary 
title of Professor. Professor Felix, the professor of anatomy, wrote me a 
letter (I had written him expressing my appreciation of Professor Fleisch), 
stating that my letter had practically decided them to give him the honorary 
title. A little later he was appointed Professor of Physiology at the University 
of Dorpat, Esthonia, where he should give a good account of himself.
