Mr. BLACKMORE:

This case has been brought before me; I should like to read to the minister the findings of Doctor Frank Emmons, this man's specialist, as made on December 4, 1944. As a result of this doctor's examination he found, and I quote the doctor's words:
A rupture of two of the cartillagenous discs, cushioning the vertebral bones of the spine, with pressure on the spinal cord.
In the light of that diagnosis the minister will see the absurdity of such treatment as putting this man in a plaster cast, applying heat, and injecting substances into the buttocks and other parts of his body.
