On December 17, a meeting in honor of Pasteur was held in the Atheneum. Sr. Salvatella, secretary of education, Professor Carracido, president of the Central University, Dr. Gimeno, professor of medicine, former cabinet member and Spanish representative in the League of Nations, Dr. Maranon, physician in the General Hospital and vice president of the Atheneum, the French ambassador to Spain, and Professor Pettit, representing the Pasteur Institute of Paris, were present. Dr. Maranon read an address by Dr. Turro of Barcelona, and other addresses were delivered by Drs. Carracido, Gimeno and Pettit, the last in French. Dr. Pettit made the announcement, received with applause, that the Pasteur Institute had confirmed Dr. Ferran's conclusions as to the saprophytic etiology of tuberculosis, which is a modification of Koch's classical concept. Physicians, who had hitherto paid no attention to Ferran's views, now learned in French what they had overlooked in Spanish.
