High school English teachers
should be concerned with research,
Prof. Royal J. Morsey of Ball
State Teachers College, Ind., said
yesterday at the first meeting of
the Conference Series for English
Discussing research by high
school teachers, Prof. Morsey not-
ed that instruction improves "when
English teachers are motivated to
check the validity of others' re-
"Teachers who participate in the
excitement of checking others' re-
search results will become testers
of common-sense ideas rather than
treasurers of traditional ideas."
Prof. Morsey said that the scien-
tific approach in research prob-
lems is a primary reason for
growth in English research.
Two new vice-presidents of the

The luncheon, part of the fes-

Hatcher called Fraser "an alum-
nus of the third category ... those
who have never had any official
connection with the University but
who have unofficially, because of
their genuine interest in the af-
University scientists have found
new evidence which links viruses to
.the cause of acute leukemia.
The findings, reported by Prof.
William G. Murphy at a sympos-
ium on leukemia, can give impe-
tus to research for a virus cause
Prof. Murphy described finding
the viruses in tissue cultures after
adding bone marrow specimens
from children with acute leukem-
Tests run on non-leukemia pa-
tients were generally negative.
Patients with other cancer-like
diseases "yielded agents which had
the same biological properties,"
Prof. Murphy reported.
The University researchers had
a working hypothesis "that a fam-
ily of viruses may exist in man
which cause a whole spectrum of
related neoplastic diseases includ-
ing leukemia," he added.
Man can produde antibodies to
some of these viruses. Creating a
vaccine which would control them
is not altogether out of the ques-
tion, he concluded.
The University researchers con-
centrated on bone marrow in
their. study of leukemia because
the body's blood supply is manu-
factured there. Leukemia is a di-
sease of the Mlood and blood-
A new approach in isolating
t h e s e viruses is important
"whether or not the particular
viruses prove to be the pasic cause
of leukemia," according to Prof.
Walter J. Nungester, chairman of
the bacteriology department.
Marquette University in Wiscon-
sin conferred the honorary degree
of doctor of letters on Prof. . B.
Harrison of the English depart-

meaningful than the one enjoyed
by the alumni who are marked of-
