NSA Plans
The National Student Associa-
tion is a non-political, non-profit
confederation of college students,
Larry Soloman, Student Govern-
ment Council's NSA coordinator
explained yesterday.
Formed in 1947 to further aca-
demic freedom in the United
States, the organization today
represents more than one million
American college students and is
the only such student-controlled
organization in the country.
At the University. the NSA co-
ordinator functions under the
administrative wing of SGC. His
function is to get information
from other schools about prob-
lems facing students here and
help stimulate projects through
other campus organizations.
A national conference is held
each summer in which carious
national problems are discussed
and resolutions passed. Segrega-
tion and the liberty of college
newspapers were two of the areas
discussed at the last meeting.
These resolutions are not bind-
ing on the members, and all ac-
tion is purely voluntary, according
to Soloman.
In addition to the yearly con-
ference, each member school be-
longs to a smaller regional organ-
ization that meets at least two
times a year. The chairman of
each region is a member of the
national executive board.
Michigan State University,
Wayne State University, Ferris In-
stitute, Central Michigan College,
Marygrove College and Flint
Junior College are fellow members
with the University in the Michi-
gan region.
Soloman, who is treasurer of
the region, said this summer's
national convention, would prob-
ably consider the adoption of a
national college wire service.

Chairmen Plan Drive
Forty-four state and area chair-
men of the Foundation's Teen Age
Program, known as TAP, arrived
in Ann Arbor on Sunday for an in-
formal session to plan the com-
ing drive.
O'Connor presided over yester-
day morning's program, where Dr.
Tatum, Dr. Thomas M. Rivers, a
noted virologist who is vice-presi-
dent for medical affairs of the
Foundation, Dr. Joseph C. Hinsey,
direcotr of the New York Hospi-
tal-Cornell Medical Center and
Dr. William S. Clark, National
Foundation director of medical
care, delivered papers to the TAP's
in Rackham Auditorium.
Research Needs Increase
O'Connor said that medical re-
search in the U.S. will need three
times as much as it now gets from
public contributions and industry.
"By 1970," he said, "there will
be 220' million people in the U.S.,
with a predominance of young-
sters under 20 and oldsters over
65. To keep these .. . population
numbers healthy and productive,
approximately a billion dollars a
year will have to be spent on sus-
taining medicine's rapid advance
and to step up medical education
He noted that half of this sum
must come from the National
Dr. Tatum Speaks
Dr. Tatum, who shared the 1958
Nobel Prize in medicine and
physiology for his genetic studies,
in the keynote address, expressed
his faith in man's ability to ad-
just not only to the hazards of
atomic energy, but also to the
challenges of living together in
world brotherhood.

He added that as more is
learned about control of cell ma-
chinery and heredity, we will see
"the complete conquering of many
of man's ills, including hereditary
defects in metabolism," and "the
momentarily more obscure condi-
tions such as cancer and arthri-
Dr. Hinsey Praises Foundation
Dr. Hinsey praised the Founda-
tion's plan to spend $12,000,000 on
training young people for careers
in the health professions. The
scholarship program, which will
offer four-year college scholar-
ships to at least 505 students, will
be initiated this June with funds
sought in the current March of
Dr. Rivers followed with a paper
on "Making Viruses Work for
Man" in which he described re-
cent attempts to synthesize nu-
cleic acid, a constituent of genes,
which controls cellular activity.
He noted that scientists may
"some day be able to manipulate
the nucleic acid in such a man-
ner that much suffering, sickness,
disability and mental illness will
be prevented or alleviated."
May Make Nucleic Acid
Dr. Rivers continued "some day
man will make a nucleic acid
which will induce cells to manu-
facture a virus far deadlier than
any now known and capable of
doing more harm to mankind than
hydrogen bombs."
Dr. Clark remarked that ad-
vances in preventive and curative
medicine are increasing man's life
expectancy so rapidly that young
people today may have more than
80 years of life ahead of them.
He noted, however, that though
medical progress has reduced
acute illnesses that cause death,
the result has been an increase in
patients with chronic disabilities
