Fate Of

Revelation that a trick of nature
seldom encountered by geologists or
meteorologists-thunder and light-
ning at 74 degrees north latitude-
might have been instrumental in
bringing disaster to the ill-fated
Saelan transport boat which sank
about Sept. 25, was contained in a
letter received, hee Wednesday by
William Carlson, instructor in the
geology department.
The Saelan had carried the Uni-
versity-Greenland Expedition from
Upernivik to their camp, and had set
out on the return voyage when the
phenomenon occurred.
One paragraph of Mr. Carlson's
letter, dated Oct. 13, is concerned
with the probable fate of the Sael-
an, later known to be lost with all
on board. The letter, written at Pro-
ven, was from Arla Knudsen Nicolai-
sen, wife of a Danish official connect-
ed with the party.
"Oct. 13 . . . for that night
the Saelan came-south bound with
Bestigrer Otto, wife and daughter,
who were to leave for Denmark on
the 'Gertrude Rask.' But now we're
all very much worried because we
haven't heard a word about the
schooner for over two weeks. And you
know a trip to Upernivik shouldn't
take more than three or four days-
we have, in the meantime, had the
most terrific storm I've seen up here
-beginning with a flash of lightning
and a crash of thunder-a phenome-
non they never have seen up here'

Co-Op Boarding House
To Be Open For Holidays
The Michigan Co-operative Board-
ing House in Lane Hall will remain
open during the Christmas vacation,
it was announced yesterday by Sher
M. Quirashi, Grad. The regular
price of $2.90 per week will be charg-
ed. No deposit will be necessary.
Owing to the increasing number
of students eating at the Boarding
House, a reduction of 10 cents in the
weekly charge will probable be pos-
sible beginning the first week after
the vacation, Quraishi announced.

This will be the second reduction
that has been made; it is expected
that during the next semester addi-
tional reductions can be effected
until a price of $2.50 per week can
be reached.

Tulane Men Originate
'Gigolo' Dating Bureau
NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 15.-Echoes
of the proposed "dating bureau" at
the University of Michigan, which
last year earned notoriety through
the nation's press, were heard today
when Tulane University introduced
the collegiate gigolo.
A "Gigolo Club" just organized at
the university announced today it
will provide "attractive, well-dressed
dates" for all occasions for "small re-
The club, it was explained, has
been formed to solve the date prob-
lem for women attending Newcomb
No names of "clients" will be made
public, the club promises, and all en-
gagements will be held strictly con-
fidential. An escort to a formal party
requiring a dinner jacket will collect
a fee of $2, and "informal" dates will
charge $1.
"Any expenses, including taxis,
shows, flowers, night club checks and
similar items naturally will be paid
by the young woman," a campus
poster declared.

M. Herriot thus far has taken the
position that in view of his stand be-
'fore the Chamber of Deputies, when
he insisted upon the necessity of pay-
ing the United States, and in view
of the chamber's vote against him, he
would not be in a position to carry
on future negotiations with America.,
M. Herriot authorized a statement
that he believes France should and
will pay her debts. He believes that
there should be opened, without any
delay whatsoever, negotiations for
revision of the war debts. He wanted,
he said, to pay the December interest
with the understanding it would be
deemed part of a final agreement.
Since the Chamber of Deputies'
adverse debt decision, the French
people show no difference in their
attitude toward Americans.
Frenchmen and Frenchwomen ap-
peared to realize that France has
taken a step of grave importance. An
expression often heard is "our coun-

There was considerable interest in
what Britain will do about the debt
owed by France to Britain.
The press generally emphasized
that France has not refused pay-
ment but has postponed payment
pending negotiations.

music has been arranged from var-

the time that the play was produced.
Raffle Winners' Prize
Duplicate Possessions
The major prizes in the drawing
last night at the Michigan Theatre
will not do the winners any good-
both already had exact duplicates of
their winnings!
First to win a major prize, an elec-
tric radio, was Miss Leah Woodford,
513 Felch Street, a post-graduate
student at Ann Arbor High School.
Miss Woodford's family already owns
a radio which is an exact duplicate
in make and model of the one her
ticket won with the number 15,301.
The electric refrigerator offered as
the second major prize was won by
W. 0. Harris, '30, of Platte. Mr. Har-
ris, who received his master of arts
degree in 1931, is married, and is em-
ployed by a firm of certified public
accountants here. Mr. and Mrs. Har-
ris have a refrigerator exactly like

Despite s Il k stockings, women
students at the University manage to
have fewer colds than do the men, it
was revealed in a survey covering
statistics from 1917-31, prepared by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe of the Health
Service and recently released by the
national Public Health Service.
The pamphlet, entitled "Acute
Respiratory Disease in University of
M i c h i g a n Students, 1917-1931,"
shows that during each month of the
year, over the 14 year period, co-ed
cold treatments averaged slightly
less in number than male cases. Out
of 152 months throughout the period
there were only 28 months in which

six groups, since 1919, frequent colds
were listed by a slightly greater per-
centage of males than females in
each group. The averages, are, fe-
males 18 per cent and males 22 per
Further figures demonstrate that,
in the entire period, the greatest
number of minor respiratory condi-
tions treated occurred in December,
1929 when it was computed that 3,-
640 cases were treated for every 1,-
000 of student population. The next
highest month was April, 1918, when
the rate was 2,699 for every 1,000
highest treatment rate on a whole
year basis; in that year, 1,198 cases
were treated out of every 1,000 of
student population.

Two discoveries in the field of
medicine made by Michigan profes-
sors some fifty years ago have proved
to be so valuable both for their in-
trinsic worth and for the openings
they provided for further study that
their old laboratories would be visit-
ed as shrines by modern members
of the profession if the old building
had not been torn down, according
to an advertisement of the Univer-
sity appearing in the Michigan
Alumnus this week.
