It then can be changed back to the micro- scopic or non-filterable form.
Rife's powerful microscope, said 43 to have a visual power of magnification to 17, times, com- pared with times of which the ordinary microscope is capable, Dr. Kendall said he could see the typhoid bacilli in the filterable or formerly invisible stage.
It is probably the first time the minute filterable virus organisms ever have been seen. Rife, by an ingenious arrangement of lenses applying an entirely new optical principle and by introducing double quartz prisms and powerful illuminating lights, has devised a microscope with a lowest magnification of 5, times and a maximum working magnification of 17, times. Frankly dubious about the perfection of a microscope which appears to transcend the limits set by optic science. Johnson's guests expressed themselves as delighted with the visual demonstration and heartily accorded both Dr.
Kendall a foremost place in the world's rank of scientists. It was the first time a picture of the super microscope had appeared in public.
The jour- nal was the official publication of the state medical associa- tions of California, Nevada and Utah. The prestigious Science magazine then carried an article which alerted the scientific community of the entire nation. It included the following description: 'The light used with Dr. Rife's microscope is polarized, that is, it is passing through crystals that stop all rays except those 44 vibrating in one particular plane.
By means of a double reflect- ing prism built into the instrument, it is possible to turn this plane of vibration in any desired direction, controlling the illumination of the minute objects in the field very exactly. The article explained, "This is a new kind of mag- nifier, and the laws governing microscopes may not apply to it. Rife has developed an instrument that may revolutionize laboratory methods and enable bacteriologists, like Dr.
Kendall, to identify the germs that produce about 50 diseases whose causes are unknown. And there Dr. Thomas Rivers and Hans Zinsser stopped the scientific process. Their opposition meant that the development of Rife' s discoveries would be slowed. Professional microbiologists would be cautious in even conceding the possibility that Rife and Kendall might have broken new ground.
The depression was at its worst. The Rockefeller Institute was not orily a source of funding but powerful in the corridors of professional recognition.
A great crime resulted because of the uninformed, cruel and unscientific actions of Rivers and Zinsser. The momentum was slowed at the moment when Rife's discoveries could have "broken out" and triggered a chain reaction of research, clinical treatment and the beginnings of an entirely new health system. By the end of , Rife could destroy the typhus bacteria, the polio virus, the herpes virus, the cancer virus and other viruses in a culture and in experi- mental animals.
Human treatment was only a step away. The opposition of Rivers and Zinsser in had a devas- tating impact on the history of 20th century medicine. Zins- ser's Bacteriology in an updated version is still a standard textbook.
Unfortunately, there were few esteemed bac- teriologists who were not frightened or awed by Rivers. But there were two exceptions to this generally unheroie crowd. William H.

The inedical library at Johns Hopkins University is named after him. He rose and said, "Kendall's observation marks a distinct advance in medicine. By then Riv- ers and Zinsser were the powers in the field. Kendall's other supporter was Dr. The Mayo Clinic was then and is today one of the outstanding research and treatment clinics in the world. The Washington Post of January 6, wrote, "To many in the medical com- munity, the Mayo Clinic is 'the standard' against which ottier medical centers are judged.
They are not visible by the ordi- nary methods of illumination and magnification. Exami- nation under the Rife microscope of specimens, containing objects visible with the ordinary microscope, leaves no doubt of the accurate visualization of objects or particulate matter by direct observation at the extremely high magnification calcu- lated to be 8, diameters obtained with this instrument. Kendall's laboratory, I hope you will take the necessary time to describe how you obtain what physicists consider the impossible.
As I visualize the matter, your ingenious method of illumination with the intense mono- chromatic beam of light is of even greater importance than the enormously high magnification. The unique "color frequency" staining method was the great breakthrough. Years later, after the arri- val of television, an associate of the then deceased Rife would explain, "The viruses were stained with the frequency of light just like colors are tuned in on television sets.
But in , Rife was not interested in writing a scientific paper explaining the physics of his microscope, as Rosenow had hoped. Rife's meeting with Kendall had provided Rife with the "K Medium. He wanted to find the cancer virus. And that is exactly what he did in In , he obtained an unulcer- ated breast mass that was checked for malignancy from the Paradise Valley Sanitarium of National City, California. But the initial cancer cultures failed to produce the virus he was seeking. Then a fortuitous accident occurred.
The May 11, Evening Tribune of San Diego later described what happened: "But neither the medium nor the microscope were sufficient alone to reveal the fitter-passing organism Rife found in can- cers, he recounted. It was an added treatment which he found virtually by chance that finally made this possible, he related. He happened to test a tube of cancer culture within the circle of a tubular ring filled with argon gas activated by an electrical current, which he had been using in experimenting with elec- tronic bombardment of organisms of disease.
His cancer cul- ture happened to rest there about 24 hours with the cun-ent on the argon gas filled tube , and then he noticed under the microscope that its appearance seemed to have changed. He studied and tested this phenomenon repeatedly, and thus disco- vered cancer virus filter-passing, red-purple granules in the cultures.
Then it was placed in a water bath with 2 inches of vacuum and incubated for 24 hours at Rife believed the gas-filled tube ionized the cancer culture and this was counteracted by the oxidation in the water vacuum. Some chemical constituents of the organism were so changed that it 49 was brought within tiie visible spectrum, as seen through Rife's microscope. The BX cancer virus was a distinct purplish red color. Rife had succeeded in isolating the filtrable virus of carcinoma.
Rife's laboratory notes for November 20, contain the first written description of the cancer virus characteristics. Perfeaps that was his inteiit all along and the notes were hastily written. The size of the cancer virus was indeed small. No otxiinary light microscope, even in the s, would be able to inyce the cancer virus visible.
Rife and his laboratory assistant E. Free proceeded to confum his discovery. They repeated the method consecu- tive times with identical results. When properly stained, this form can be readily seen with a standard research microscope 4 Crytomyces pleomorphia fungi— identical morphologi- cally to that of the orchid and of the mushroom Rife wrote in his book: "Any of these forms can be changed back to 'BX' within a period of 36 hours and will produce in the experimental animal a typical tumor with all the pathology of true neoplastic tissue, from which we can again recover the 'BX' micro-organism.
This complete proc- ess has been duplicated over times with identical and positive results. He had shown how the cancer virus changes form, depending on its environment.
He had confirmed the work of Bechamp, of Kendall, of Rosenow, of Welch and an army of pleomorphist bacteriologists who would come after him and have to battle the erroneous orthodox laws of Rivers and his legions of followers. Rife said, "In reality, it is not the bacteria themselves that produce the disease, but the chemical constituents of these micro-organisms enacting upon the unbalanced cell metabolism of the human body that in actuality produce the disease.
We also believe if the metabolism of the human body is perfectly balanced or poised, it is susceptible to no disease. He would leave that for others. After isolating the cancer virus, his next step was to destroy it. He did this with his frequency instruments- over and over again. And then he did it with experimental animals, inoculating them, watching the tumors grow, and then killing the virus in their bodies with the same frequency instruments tuned to the same "BX" frequency.
Rife declared in "These successful tests were conducted over times with experimental animals before any attempt was made to use this frequency on human cases of carcinoma and sarcoma. He was ready to cure cancer. Note: Kendall's "K Medium" was used to grow cancer virus by scientists after the discovery that the virus would grow on it and that ionizing radiation would make the virus more virulent, growing the 51 tumors in weeks instead of months in a spirally wound "jriion giis loop" in which the test tubes of the culture would fit for 24 hours at a time.
It was made from pig intestine finely desiccated to which a little salt tyrode solution was added. Rife discovered that pig meat and mushrooms were a natural cause of cancer in which the cancer virus liked to grow.
Rife also discovened the cancer virus in Hthids. The filtration versus non-filtration argument prevented those in the field of bacteriology from charging in the direction that Rife, Kendall and Rosenow had shown. Instead, the bac- teriologists were squabbling, being skeptical and waiting to see which way the wind blew. The microscope experts also were standing on the sidelines. They had heard or read about the new Rife microscope, but only Rife and Kendall had one, and few knew a second microscope existed in Kendall's Chicago laboratory.
Rife wasn't providing the professionals much information. He had his cancer virus to test and test and test. And he had a new,, more powerful microscope that he wanted to build.
Johnson and others were seeking meetings, writing letters and asking for demonstrations. Rife was polite and helpful at times, but often just never answered his mail. The scientific problem of curing cancer demanded his full attention. And despite all the outside pressure in , Rife did accomplish three major feats.
