The operations also have claimed his left hand, most of his nose, his upper lips and parts of his cheek and jaw. He asks, "Why should I, an innocent individual, have to suffer like this? For 61 years 1 have known pain." THE WHITE-HAIRED MAN is Dr. Emil H. Gruhhe, 84, credited by medical science with being the first, to apply radiation in an attempt to cure cancer. Friday he is scheduled to undergo his 92nd operation for radiation burns and cancer resulting from some of his experiments. Doctors say they probably will have to remove two fingers from his right hand. Dr. Grubbe gave a rare news conference Wednesday in Swedish Covenant Hospital "t WAS THE FIRST ONE burned by he said. He told how in 1895, as a physicist, he worked on 1 the manufacture of platinum vacuum tubes called Crookes tubes, used to rarify gases. Many times he touched the tubes or brought them near his face, not knowing of the danger. An irritation appeared on his hand, but he didn't know what it was. Then on Nov. 8, 1895, the discovery of X rays was announced by Wilhelm Roentgen. "f knew then I had been burned by X Dr. Grubbe said. "They were produced in the Crookes tubes. From that day on I protected myself from the rays. Bui it was too late.'1 SIX MONTHS LATER he had his first operation for radiation burns. In the meantime, Dr. Grubbe, on Jan. 26, 1896, began treating a woman afflicted with breast cancer by expos- ing her to X rays. The pain left her shortly. Since then he has instructed more than doctors in radiology techniques. Dr. Grubbe declines the role of a martyr, but admits he would nol have conducted his experiments if he could have seen the results. "No, not with all the misery I've he said. 2-Car Crash Kills 6 Near Calif.
