lYear Abroad
The Literary School Steering
Committee yesterday reviewed the
possibilities for a junior year
abroad, and discussed counseling
programs for freshmen, juniors
and seniors.
It was decided that the program
for the junior year needs to be
looked into further as to the num-
ber of interested students, and to
the financial adequacies of the
Students could then use one of
the existing programs of another
school if the University could not
finance it.
The committee also decided that
pre-registration was beneficial to
the incoming student because it
allowed him to spend more time
with a faculty counselor. Students
who enter for the first time in the
fall do not see a counselor for
enough time to make the visit
The committee decided it would
be beneficial to the new students
if a counselor would address a
group, followed by question and
answer periods, advising them on
distribution requirements and
other problems that all incoming
students face:
Also debated was the role of
the counselors of juniors and
seniors It was held by many of
the committee that counselors, in
addition to fulfilling graduation
requirements; should advise the
students vocationally. Some said
the student should be assigned to
only one faculty member
Many also felt that an informal
counseling program for the stu-
dent would be profitable.


Prof. Nathan Sinai Notes

Public Health Improvement


STANLEY QUARTET-The Quartet will present the first of four concerts tonight at 8:30 in
Rackham Auditorium. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the group has appeared on the
campuses of Midwestern and Eastern universities and has performed throughout the state.
Stanley Quartet To Perform onight

The Public Health movement
originally grew out of a very broad
movement of social reform, Prof.
Nathan Sinai of the School of
Public Health -said in a lecture
Prof. Sinai's lecture was the
second of a two-part discussion of
"The Historical and Social. Back-
ground of the Modern Public
Health Movement" given at a
School of Public Health assembly.
Before this century, Prof. Sinai
said, the health department sym-
bolized and typified the health
movement of the day. Had the
question "Where do we go from
here?' been asked then, the an-
swer would have been "We're mov-
ing towards a world free from
communcable diseases."
"But then a few dissonant notes
began to creep in," Prof. Sinai
continued, "in the person of the
statistician who said 'Don't look
now, but your opinions have no
support.' There was the problem
of tuberculosis, and those who
knew its history knew that its con-
centration was found among the
badly nourished, among the badly
housed, in short, among the im-
New problems were arising, and
the health leaders were faced with
two choices, Prof. Sinai explained:
to accept social leadership and
embrace change, or to reject it and
remain disinterested.
"The tendency to regard health
as a relatively isolated problem
is totally unjustified," Prof. Sinai
stated, "and it is a tendency more
prominent in well developed coun-
tries than in under - developed
countries. Economic development,
social advance and health im-
provement must advance together.
One lagging behind will hold back
the others."

In the face of the new problems,
health departments rejected lead-
ership, Prof. Sinai said, but the
problems were taken up by other
agencies. Today, in addition to the
health departments there are in-
dependent agencies dealing with
polio, cancer, heart disease, sci-
entific research and other prob,
lems as well as government. agen-
cies involved in welfare, compensa-
tion and insurance, "Who," -he
asked; "can say in 1958 that the
public is not interested in public
From the Stonehenge circle,
Aided 'by the witches' cauldron,
Mystic plans were brewed
in darkness.
Many twigs were examined;
Many rocks were overturned,
Subjected to heat from
blazing torches,
Observed by men of knowledge
and magic.
Those decayed; were
burned and destroyed.
Finally from the murky grove,
From the Cave where
Fingal perished,
The Order of the Mighty Oak
Causing the earth to shake
and shiver,
Causing nations and peoples
to cower,
All to bend the twig and sapling
And to capture the sturdy
Loose-swinging Long-shot Lo-
cust Lovell, and Mighty-leaping
Marble-shouldered maple Mar-
