New York, July 23---The Physician cannot be sure of his diagnosis simply by looking at the patient. Syphilis, "the great imitator" mocks the symptoms of other diseases and may appear externally in very mild form. But syphilis is an internal disease-not a skin disease. From a vein the physician draws a bit of blood for analysis at the laboratory.
