Service important
The medical services of the Uni-
versity Health "Service have not yet
reached the point of maximum de-
mand by the student population, ac-
cording to its monthly health report
for November.
No unusual conditions are recog-
nized as responsible for the substan-
tial increases in numbers of services
over last year. Perhaps the amount
of medical service needed by any
population is not determinable; it
probably depends upon the ease with
which it may be received and the
degree to which people are educated
to use it, the report stated.
Statistical data for the month of
November of 1932 as compared with
that of November of 1933 is as fol-
lows: Dispensary calls increased from
9026 to 9496; room calls decreased
from 148 to 125; hospital patients
increased from 16 to 27; infirmary
patients increased from 147 to 160;
laboratory examinations increased
from 942 to 1257; special ear, nose
and throat treatments increased from
302 to 312; physiotherapy treatments
decreased from 1005 to 995; special
dermatology treatments decreased
from 342 to 316; acute respiratory
infections decreased from 755 to 584;
acute appendicitis cases increased
from 10 to 12; tuberculosis active
(lungs) decreased from six to four;
and pneumonia cases were static at
Included in the monthly report is
a brief ┬░survey of: the problem of
sythe, Director of the Health Service.
It continues in full. "The recent
spread of an intestinal infection from
a cook to many guests of a leading
Chicago hotel disturbed health of-
ficials generally. The possible spread
of disease by food handlers has been
well recognized, but its prevention is
a very difficult problem. It involves
a close supervision of very large num-
bers of people, based upon a medical
examination at stated intervals.
"The health certification is a prob-
lem of decision between that obtain-
able from the average physician
without extensive laboratory tests,
and that which includes an x-ray of
the lungs, a throat culture, and a
microscopic and bacteriological ex-
amination of the urine and feces. The
laboratory and x-ray tests are time-
consuming and expensive, but the
prevention of epidemic disease from
food handlers requires the tests."

Lecture Topic

that "he is a fascinating and fearless
lecturer and an enlightening evening
can be expected."
Robins was born in New York City
and received a degree in law from
George Washington University in 1896
and as a young man just out of col-
lege followed the gold rush to the
Klondike and there he became inter-
ested in the condition of the miners,
Mr. Lewis, said.
"From the beginning, he contin-

ued, Robins' interest in the problems
of the working people and surpressed
classes grew and he entered the so-
cial service, working with Miss Jane
Addams of Hull House, in Chicago.
Although a Progressive Republican
in politics, a member of the adminis-
tration of Theodore Roosevelt, and a
candidate for Senator from Illinois
on the progressive ticket, Robins was

Modern Auto Efficiency Is
Attributed To The Use
Of High-Compression
The discovery that the modern mo-
tor car owes its increased power and
efficiency to high-compression en-
gines rather than to the use of spe-
cial anti-knock fuels has just been
made in a series of experiments con-
ducted by Professor George Granger
Brown, head of the chemical engi-
neering department.
It was also found that certain
blends of alcohol and gasoline, re-
cently advocated, would give equal
power as compared with straight
gasoline, but at an increase in quan-
tity required per mile.
For every 10 per cent of alcohol
added to gasoline, from four to five
per cent more of the mixed fuel is
required to get the same power and
mileage which straight g a s o lii n e
would yield, Professor Brown found.
This is due to the fact that the ener-
gy obtainable by burning one gallon
of gasoline is 50 per cent more than
that obtainable from a gallon of al-
The high compression ratio of
modern automobile engines makes
possible their greater power and effi-
ciency, when used with any fuel. Spe-
cial anti-knock gasolines may be nec-
essary in some cars to eliminate ob-
jectionable knock, but do not in
themselves give greater power or ef-
ficiency. Ease of starting and accel-
eration with a given automobile are
due in large measure to fuel vola-
tility, which is usually independent
of the octane or anti-knock rating.

Color Printing
Discussed By
Ma'rch Sunday
Perfection Is Claimed For
Japanese In This Field
Of Artistic Endeavor
Speaking on the color printing of
the Japanese, Dr. Benjamin March,
curator of the Division of the Orient
of the Museum of Anthropology and
lecturer on Far Eastern art, said that
this medium of artistry had reached
its most perfect form in the land
of the Shoguns, which at present is
the only country where contempor-
ary work in this field is being done.
Although block-color printing ori-
ginated in China, said Dr. March,
the oldest block print now in exist-
ence is Japanese. At first used for
Bedhistic purposes, block prints have
since been utilized for illustrative
and decorative effects, he said.
Contemporary Japanese wood block
designers aim their work toward
achieving light and pleasant scenes,
and not for emotional or spiritual ef-
fects, he continued.
On exhibition in Alumni Hall are
the works of nine celebrated con-
temporary masters of Japanese color
woodcut designers, including some
pictures by Kazuma, Hasui, and
Shinsui. Containing 250 woodcuts,
the exhibit is the second largest of
its kind ever to be shown in the
United States. The exhibit will con-
tinue for the rest of December and
is open to the public.
appointed by President Wilson as an
unofficial observer in Russia. '
According to an advance statement
when Robins returned from Russia,
people have been asking him to go
there again for one purpose or an-
other. But Colonel Robins had been
too close to the birth of the Soviet
Republic to want to revisit it too
soon. He wanted it to get out of its
swaddling clothes, to complete its
adolescence before renewing contact
and rendering an opinion.
In 1933 he revisited Russia. He
covered the Soviet Union thoroughly.
It is on his findings there after 15
years of the great social experiment
that he will lecture on tonight. He
will reveal Russia as it is today.

actual cases of students needing
funds, and that they can bring these
names forward at the meeting of
their executive committee and Dean
Bursley. In this way, they feel the,
campaign this year will not only pro-
duce more money but the distribution
-of this money will be more syste-

The council was formed primarily
through the work of the Undergradu-

the new organization, and last night
a vote of thanks was extended to the
Undergraduate Council and to its
president, Gilbert E. Bursley, for the
initiating of the co-operative body.
Organizations which are mentioned
in the constitution as belonging to
the Co-Operative Council are: the
