Three Year Project To Study
Malaria tradication Effects

To study the economic effects
of eradicating malaria, the Bureau
of Public Health Economics has
received a $104,000 grant from the
National Institutes of Health and
Pan-American Health Organiza-
tion, the Western Hemisphere of-
fice of the World Health Organi-
Preparations for the three-year
project are now underway under
the direction of Dr. S. J. Axelrod,
of the Bureau.
Select Country
The study is in the process of
the selecting of a South Ameri-
can country in which to conduct
field investigations and determine
the economic effects of a ma-
laria eradication program.
"The selection of the study
country depends in part on -the
availability of health and eco-
nomic data," Axelrod said,
Another factor under consider-
ation in' the choice of a study

area is the stage of its malaria
eradication campaign. However,
the availability of data will be the
deciding factor, Axelrod said.
Economic Results -
The project is studying the pos-
sibility of identifying the eco-
nomic results of a malaria eradi-
cation campaign and ways to
measure this factor.
"Since many results are involv-
ed in such a campaign, it is diffi-
cult to determine if a result is
caused by an economic factor,"
Axelrod noted.
As part of the study, an econo-
mist will work full time on the
Mixed Blessing
Axelrod noted that malaria
eradication is a mixed blessing.
While it may open previously in-
fested lands to agriculture, such
a campaign may also cause a
population explosion.
"The study hopes to provide
data for governments to make de-
cisions in establishing health or
other social welfare programs with
their limited funds," Axelrod stat-
In the past - health conditions
had been so bad in many under-
developed countries that there was
no reason for denying funds for
public health projects. However,
today these programs must com-
pete with those in other social
welfare fields for funds, Axelrod

Mrs. Chase S. Osborn has giv-

The Regents accepted the grant
at their January meeting.
Challenge's theme is now "Chal-

A course in reading efficiency,
designed to improve reading rate,
concentration, vocabulary and
critical comprehension will be

Weichlein To Teach
Prof. William J. Weichlein of
the music school will, teach a
twelve-week course in "Music of
the Spring Festival."
The course is planned for those
with no previous technical" knowl-
edge of music as well as those who
wish to increase their under-
standing and appreciation. Lec-
tures, discussions and recordings
will deal with concerts to be pre-
sented at the May Festival.

of Engi neers
Drops Slightly
During the fall semester indus-
trial recruiters made 288 visits to
the- University to interview en-
gineers, four fewer visits than in
the fall of 1959-60.
More visits were scheduled this
year than last, but cancellations
mostly in chemical and electrical
engineering companies caused the
decrease in actual visits.
Prof. John G. Young, director of
engineering placement, said the
cancellations were due not only to
lack of openings in the firms, but
also to insufficient appointments
to justify a visit.
"The demand for advanced de-
grees is still definitely increasing,"
he said. Last semester there were
17 visits specifically seeking doc-
toral candidates, and 21 during
both semesters last year.
