  • Description

    MR. GASTON NAESSENS, THE SELF-TAUGHT FRENCH BIOLOGIST FLEW INTO EDINBURGH LAST NIGHT, (SATURDAY), TO DISCUSS HIS SERUM TO LEUKAEMIA WITH A TEAM OF MEDICAL SPECIALISTS.

    THE TALL, BALDING SCIENTIST REFUSED TO DISCUSS AN OFFER MADE BY A SCOTTISH BUSINESSMAN WHO OFFERED HIM 3000 POUNDS A YEAR TO CONTINUE HIS RESEARCH IN BRITAIN. MR NAESSENS INDICATED THAT HE WOULD BE UNLIKELY TO ACCEPT THE OFFER AS THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT HAD CHANGED ITS MIND ABOUT THE SERUM AND HAD ASKED HIM TO CARRY ON HIS RESEARCH IN CORSICA.

    MR. NAESSENS IS EXPECTED TO SPEND ABOUT TWO DAYS IN EDINBURGH EXPLAINING HIS WORK TO SPECIALISTS AND DESCRIBING THE CONDITION OF PATIENTS TREATED WITH THE SERUM ON CORSICA.

    AS THE BIOLOGIST FLEW TO BRITAIN, THREE MORE SMALL BOYS SUFFERING FROM THE DISEASE LEFT LONDON FOR CORSICA FOR TREATMENT.
