Radio Vibrations Tell All Secrets
Woman's Education Club Hears Lectures
Dr. Ernest Hall Contends World is on the Eve of Great Scientific Discoveries
"If the theory of Doctor Albert Abrams, of San Francisco, relative to the diagnosis and treatment of disease by the determination and application of radio vibrations is true, it is the greatest discovery in medical science ever recorded". In these words Doctor Ernest Hall of Victoria, expressed his opinion of the teaching and demonstrations performed by Doctor Abrams at his San Francisco clinic, before an overflow audience assembled int he hall of the Metropolitan Methodist Church last night, and representing the Woman's Education Club of Columbia College.
Doctor Hall attended the San Francisco clinic of Doctor Abrams last August, and last night, with the aid of diagrams drawn on the blackboard of the Metropolitan Church hall, explained some of the marvels he had witnessed.
Doctor Hall stated that according to the theory advanced by the San Francisco physician, the electrons composing the tissue of the human body in health gave off a specific number of vibrations per second, and when diseased the number changed, either going higher or lower. According to actual demonstrations made by Doctor Abrams, he said, accurate diagnosis of complex diseases were made by the use of an instrument for measuring the radio vibrations given off from electrons of diseased tissue. Nor was this all; Doctor Abrams had demonstrated his power to accurately diagnose diseases from samples of blood sent him from distant places, and after a considerable lapse of time. From the same samples he contended, and proved this by actual tests, that he could determine the sex of the person from whom the sample had been taken, and the personal characteristics and nationality of such person.
The meeting opened by Mrs. Jost, president of the club, calling upon Rev. Dr. Sipprell, pastor, to lead in prayer. Following the addresses, Mrs. Walker contributed a piano solo.
