QUININE comes home
I Rich and productive tropical re
gions of the world are not the least
prized goals of the far-flung cam
paigns of the war. Some of mans
most indispensable needs? rubber,
tin, medicinal plants, and food prod
ucts?are found in the East Indies,
in Asia, and in Africa. .
Quinine is one of these tropical
natives. Important always for the
treatment of malaria, it is more than
doubly so today when our fighting
forces are active in swamp jungle
lands. , ,
Curiously enough, Nature has or
dained that man must "use it to get
I it," since the source of supply is us
1 ually in malaria-infested tropics.
Quinine is extracted from the
powdered bark of the cinchona tree.
These trees were native to Latin Am
erica, found chiefly in a narrow belt
on the eastern slopes of the Andes
which extend from Colombia south
ward through Ecuador, Peru and Bo
livia. Like rubber, Dutch and Brit-1
ish botanists transplanted the tree
to the Far East, where cheap labor
forced a decline in Latin American
Nature had its own special way to
I introduce man to quinine. One day,
so the story goes, an Indian of Ioja,
I Ecuador, was stumbling through the
thick forest, his body racked with
I fever. He was in search of a spring
to quench his malaria-induced thirst,
lie found it in a thicket of trees.
Roots of the trees extended into the
spring Shortly after he had drunk
the water, Pedro de Leyva was rid
I of the fever.
Amazed at his recovery, he soak
led these same roots in water and
(tried the remedy on his friends who
| suffered from the same symptoms. It
was successful. Pedro then went to
| Lima to reveal his discovery to a
Jesuit who hud befriended him.
A short time later, in June, 1631,
| the Countess of Chinchon, wife of
| the viceroy of Peru, lay at the point
| of death from fever. The court physi
|cian despaired of her life and the
(people were already mouring her
loss. But an old Indian maid in the
household had heard of Pedro and
(his cure, and she also knew that the
(jesuits had the secret. Contacted by
(the faithful servant, the padres pre
vailed upon the physician to let them
(give the potion to the Countess, as
I a last resort. She, too, recovered. In
| grateful appreciation she spread the
fame of the remedy. And in honor
of the Countess of Chinchon the tree
is named?the cinchona tree from
(which we get quinine.
Cinchona trees flourish at eleva
tions of from 2.500 to 8,000 feet. The
highest quinine content is found in
the bark from the trunk at about
three feet off the ground.
Under normal conditions the Neth
erlands Indies produce about 90 per
(cent of cinchona bark, Latin Amer
ica and British Indies the rest. Bo
livia is the leading South American
producer, followed by Peru, Ecuador
and Colombia. The average annual
United Stales import of quinine is i
1364,000 pounds, the bulk of which
has come from Japanese-occupied
Indies. During the 11 months follow
ing the outbreak of war in Europe,
however, the United States doubled
the usual importation.
Malaria is an infection caused by
parasites which live in the blood
stream only a mosquito of a certain
type can transmit the disease, and
then only through the bite of the
female, since the male does not suck
blood. Despite all that is know about
it, the disease is still the scourge of
Even before the supply of Far
East quinine was cut off by the
Japanese, experiments in scientific
cultivation were being carried out
in Latin America. Bolvia, Mexico,
Peru and other nations are rallying
to the aid of the United Nations by
providing an increased supply of
the drug, assistance which will be
come more important as Allied
troops take the offensive against the
Japanese in the Far East tropics.
Just to make sure, a Midwest
youth enlisted in both the Army and
the Navy. When the Army called he
was at a Naval Training Station.
