  • Description

    Full titles read: "Pathetone Weekly has pleasure in introducing the famous Dutch Cancer Expert - Dr. S. G. Bendien, in an audio-interview during his brief visit to London."

    London.

    M/S of Dr S G Bendien sitting at a desk. Reading from a board off camera, he makes a speech, saying how it is a pleasure and honour for him to have met the British people. Throughout history, he says, the British have been the leading nation in accepting the development of science and have planted it in civilisation all over the world. He hopes to have laid the foundation stone of a better understanding of cancer, and says maybe in a short time, with the help of our provident scientists, the battle will be won forever.

    Note: this item is not mentioned in paperwork for this issue. Helene Madison is on paperwork as first story in this issue - it could have been replaced by this story. Helene Madison actually appears in PT 74, so maybe the stories were switched at the last minute.
