Because of the fact that the en-
tire parts I and II will be given, the
hour has been advanced from the

and its manufacture at the plant of
the, Libbey Glass Manufacturing
Company. In the afternoon the par-
ty will visit the Toledo Art Museum
which has an unusually fine collec-

Emil Lorch,

With the advent of cooler weather
in the fall, there is a corresponding
rise in the number of "colds" or re-
spiratory infections, a report of the
University Health Service states.
The number continues variably
throughout the winter, but with
marked increases in October and
March as shown by studies among
University students from 1917 to the
present. This common malady is a
bane to both patient and physician.
To the former it is especially trou-
blesome because of its uncomfortable
symptoms, its more serious compli-
cation and the loss of time at one's
occupation. To the doctor it is a
constant problem because he has no
armementarium which is specific for
its treatment and prolonged cure.
One cold confers no immunity. The
cause of the common cold is not defi-
nitely known. Recent bacteriological
works present evidence to show that
its cause may be a filterable virus,
an organism which can not be de-
tected with the aid of a microscope.
Much time and money has been spent.
on research concerning this ailment,
but complete knowledge of its cause
still evades the medical profession.
Infection Important
Infection, no doubt, plays an im-
portant role in the production of
colds, but its exact nature is still in
doubt. There are several general pre-
disposing causes which play a certain
part in their production. The most
important are: lowering of body re-
sistance by lack of sufficient sleep end
proper food, over-heated homes or
living quarters, excessive fatigue, ex-I
posure to drafts and reduction of
body temperature by prolonged chill-
ing. It is a known fact that outdoor
workers have fewer colds than those
who work indoors.
Important local predisposing causes
of respiratory infections are: abnor-
mal conditions in the nose and throat
such as deformities of nasal cavities
and chronically diseased tonsils and
adenoids. The correction of these
abnormal conditions often decreases
the susceptibility of the individual,
the report continued.
"One cannot overemphasize the
importance of prompt and proper

is often considered of minor impor-
tance at the start and little or no
;are is given to it unless a serious
complication ensues. We must re-
member that it is often the predeces-
sor of pneumonia and is responsible
for the large percentage of sinus
disease, middle ear and mastoid in-
fections. Some of the more common
of contagious diseases as measles,
scarlet fever and diphtheria have anI
onset similar to a common cold."
Use Of 'Cure-Ails' Discouraged
The local treatment of a cold
should consist of the more simple
drugs which give one relief from the
uncomfortable symptoms and which
are recommended by one's physician.
The use of many cures and cure-alls
as recommended by advertisements
and friends should be discouraged,
the report stated.
Preventive measures are important
in order to avoid respiratory infec-
tions and to promote the individual's
lessened susceptibility. It is impor-
tant to obtain sufficient hours of
regular sleep, proper food, to have
clean hands 'at meals, to avoid over-
heated rooms and undue exposure
to cold.
Some daily exercise out of doors
should be obtained and proper dispo-
sal of secretions of the nose and the
throat is quite important. The im-
portance o1 bed rest can not be over-
emphasized. It is the most effec-
tive treatment, but often the most
impractical and inconvenient sug-
gestion a physician can give to his
patient. Prompt medical aid should
be obtained if a complication arises
or if the cold does not disappear in a
short time, the report concluded.

The rapid disappearance of care-
less, care-free, spending and manage-
ment of Greek-letter societies on
American campuses has been revealed
by a surveyconducted by the Na-
tional Interfraternity Conference
which is reported in full by George
S. Lasher, '11, in the Dec. 9 issue of
the Michigan Alumnus. The survey
covered 1070 chapters of 49 national
groups and represented 65 per cent
of all fraternity membership in the
Aware of the times, Lasher reports,
undergraduate members of fraterni-
ties on more than 100 campuses in
the United States and Canada have
carried out economies saving their
groups from possible disaster and
producing healthier organizations.
Serious efforts to adjust the college
fraternity to the problems of the de-
pression have resulted in the elimina-
tion of inefficiency and justifiable
criticism of the present Greek-letter
world, the survey point out.
Eating Costs CCut
The most drastic reductions in ex-
penses were made in dining service.
A decline in food costs enabled about
80 per cent of the chapters reporting
to lower their board rates, some by
more than 20 per cent.
Ten per cent of the chapters cov-
ered reported that they had reduced
room rent more than 30 per cent,
while over half had made some re-
duction in this expense.
Criticism directed toward so-called
large and unnecessary expenditures
for social events has been answered
by replies that 95 per cent of the
chapters have reduced the costs of
their social activities. Only 49 re-
ported that they had made no re-
ductions in this line. More than 300
groups have reduced initiation fees
and dues during the past four year.
That the collection of accounts has
proved no more difficult to the fra-
ternities during the depression years
is shown by the fact that the number

of those chapters collecting 90 per
cent of their outstanding debts has;
increased since 1931.
Other reductions in expenses have,
been effected by co-operative buying,
lowered rent, reduction of salaries to
employees, restriction and elimination
of scholarships, installation of pay!
telephone stations, and reduction of
chapter publications.
Find New Income
Individual chapters have found sev-
eral new sources of income to offset
the reductions of regular revenue.
The most common methods have been
by allowing alumni and non-members
to room and board in the chapter
house, by renting the house during
the summer, by giving benefit social
functions, and by leasing their table
to outsiders.
In concluding the survey, the mem-
bers of the committee declared that
they believe the study had indicated
a spirit of loyalty and a readiness on
the part of the undergraduates to
make sacrifices to maintain their fra-
ternities. It was pointed out that the
abolition of many activities close to
college life had enabled fraternities
to maintain comfortable rooming and:
boarding conditions and the retention
of forces working for the good of the
Greek-letter groups.
