Berry Notes Role of Medicine

Weightlessness is still the big-
gest unknown factor in manned
space flight, Dr. Charles A. Berry,
the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration's chief med-
ical doctor for these programs ex-
Visiting the Medical Center un-
der the annual lectureship pro-
gram of Phi Delta Epsilon, Dr.
Berry told of the vital role the
medical man played in the Mer-
cury manned flight program con-
cluded last year.
Gathering such in-flight data
called for the development of a
complex set of instruments which
would not interfere with the main
work of the mission, the flight it-
self, he reported.
Flight Conditions

"We learned that what doctors
had always considered normal in
such cases as heart beat and blood
pressure was subject to great var-
iations under the altered condi-
tions of flight," Dr. Berry said.
The men' "performed well under
the hazards and stresses of con-
ditions of launch and reentry. 10(
per cent'oxygen intake, heat loads
and weightlessness," he pointec
out. Only minor temporary prob-
lems have been encountered thus
far with regard to weightlessness.
Dr. Berry explained that since
the longest weightless period sc
far experienced in free world testE
was 24 hours in Gordon Cooper's
flight, "Reaction to prolonged
SGC Officers
Resign Duties
As of March 4
Student Government Council
President Russell Epker, '64BAd,
and Frederick Rhines, '64, an-
nounced their resignations from
SGC, effective March 4.
Because they are graduating
this June, they will vacate their
seats on Council to allow SGC to
be filled next fall, they said in
Wednesday night's meeting.
Council approved a motion from
Thomas Smithson, '65, stipulating
that "to be elected as-a delegate
to the United States National Stu-
dent Association: in the spring
1964 election a candidate must re-
ceive a vote total equal to 60 per
cent of the NSA ballot."
Smithson noted that since only
three candidates are running for
the four positions this will pre-
vent a write-in candidate from
being elected to the fourth posi-
tion by only a handful of votes.
SGC also appointed. Sherry Mil-
ler, '65, chairman of an ad hoc
committee to study the operations
and problems of student activities
in year-round operations.
Council mandated the commit-
tee on student activities to check
into "circumstances surrounding
the recommendation of textboks
to bookstores" and to note "if
there could be a stipulation that.
any notice of apartment vacancy
should include the price of the
Council also passed a motion'
proposed by Issac Adelamo, Grad,
that the committee on student
parking and driving regulations
investigate the possibility of stu-
dent parking in structures now
closed to students but which are
never used to capacity.I
Adelamo's proposal that SGCk
recommend to the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs a late permission for
Saturday, Feb. 29, and Saturday,t
March 7, also passed unanimously.

periods of weightlessness is still
our biggest unknown factor."
Space Living
Such extended flight raise prob-
lems regarding the general habi-
tability of space craft. Normal
functions such as eating, sleeping,
deficating, using a spacesuit for
a long period, even shaving pose
problems, none of which seem in-
surmountable now, Dr. Berry said.
Food, however, will be one of
the bigger problems we will face
in the longer space flights of the
future, Dr. Berry said.
As space vehicles get bigger, as
with the Appollo man-on-the-
moon programs or projected or-
biting labs, general housekeeping
will require still more attention
and time, he added..
The Future
"I think that man will be per-
fectly capable of conducting the
space missions programmed for
him. Of course we can't look into
the future, but indications are that
all of the problems dan be met
and overcome," Dr. Berry stated.
"We had to devise a process for
selection of the astronauts, based
on our existing experience with
flight medicine and test pilots. A
straightforward program was used
very successfully, with all the as-
tronauts performing well," he said.
Once selected, the , men were
kept under constant surveillance
and study. "An especially valuable.
outcome of the program was a bet-
ter understanding of what can be
considered normal in human func-
tions," Dr. Berry said.
"Extensive 'base level' data were
assembled on each man just before
his mission and compared with
similar data relayed during the
flight to understand to function-
ing of a normal man in an ab-
normal environment," he added.
The first space shot in the
Gemini program with two men
aboard is scheduled for late 1964.
"it will be three orbits, mainly
to test the systems involved," he
said. The next shot is planned
for 30 orbits and then four days.
Specially prepared meals keep'
dry food sperate from water, but
in conditions of weightlessness
mixing the two often finds the
astronaut "battling globs of water
flying around the spacecraft," he
Much of the food emerges from
processing with little taste appeali

and in bite-size portions, a little
like eating saranwrap, he added.
Close attention is trained on the
astronuats for about a week before
flight, Berry noted. Both diet and
physical fitness are in the charge
of the medical team, which per-
forms a medical count-down right
along with the technical one.
At first the theory was to iso-
late the astronauts from their
flight crews for fear of disease,
but this method was soon rejected
as impractical in terms of the
length of space flight and time
of incubation.
Dr. Berry noted, however, that
as space flights become longer and
longer problems involving medi-
cation and food will become much
more difficult to solve.
