Wells Introduces Eminent Authority
On Automobile Narketing Andt
Other Statistics
Prof. Clare E. Griffin of the School
of Business Administration, who is
recognized as one of the country's
leading authorities on automobileI
marketing and statistics, in a speech
of the Summer Session series deliver-
ed yesterday afternoon attributed toj
the automobile industry the credit of
influencing business in the United
States towards its characteristic high
wages and low prices. The economi-
cal well-being of the country can bo
traced to this policy, according to Pro-
fessor Griffin.
Carlton Wells of the rhetoric de-
partment introduced the speaker and
announced several future events on
the Summer Session program. Pro-
fessor Griffin spoke on the "Economici
Aspects of the Automobile Industry."
Besides sketching the part that tho
automobile industry has played in;

May Be Prevented I- Ordinary
Fare Is Taten



Speaking of the many more com-
mon diseases such as typhoid fever,
smallpox, diphtheria, and yellow fev-
er, Dr. Lumsdeu, in his lecture yester-,
day afternoon in the auditorium of
the dental building, said that we Oan,
if we want to, free ourselves of these
pestilences that "walk in the night."
Dr. Lumsden is delivering a series of
five lectures here this week on public
The main difficulty in gathering
facts about epidemics, particularly
those new to us, Is the inability to sep-
arate coincidence from cause and ef-
fect. The speaker pointed out several
interesting examples in which such
difficulty had been experienced.
Among these examples was one of
a doctor who attempted to show that
'the reason more typhoid fever cases
occurred in the late summer and early
fall months was because of a certain
difference in the tissues of the body
and the flow of blood in the human
body at about that time of year. A
man in the audience which the doctor
in question was addressing arose and
asked whether the cause couldn't be
attributed to the fact that many straw
hats were worn by men. Since more
cases were evident among men, and
since more men wore straw hats, why,
argued the man in the audience, could
not that be the cause of more typhoid
outbreaks during the season that these
hats were worn?
Several means to prevent the spread
of disease were stressed by Dr. Lums-
den, namely: (1), cut off the spread of
disease by means of efficient sanita-
tion, (2), Purify water which we know
is contaminated, (33), Use only pas-
teurized mnilk---th.e only safe kind.
(4), Fortify ourselves by good hyg-
ienic living, (5), The use of specific1
immunizing agencies, such as vac-Z
cination in the case of small pox, and,;
(6), Having if at all possible, an effi-
cient Health Service in every commun-
Typhoid fever, for insetance, as Dr.l
Lumsden pointed out, may be spread
in ways which we never suspect. One
case he used as an illustration wasl
that, in which the water supply of a
town had become infected with the,
typhoid fever germs in the middle of
the winter months. The residents of
1ihe town were sure that the epidemicf
among them had not been caused by
the water supply since the two wells
that furnished it had not had any,
typhoid cases to their discredit in
twenty-five years. Upon careful in-
vestigation by the government healthj
authorities, however, it was discover-
ed that the wells had become polluted'
by a drain tile sixty feet distant which
