Harvard Gets Jump

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 11.-
Someone around Harvard pulled a
fast one on Yale and Princeton, an-

Princeton for a few years past have
been out of sorts with each other.
At the Yale-Princeton game at New
Haven, alumni and students of the
two universities were busy cheering
their respective teams when an au-

University Students Are Shown
To Be Careless Nose Blowers
In this season of the year when
head colds are prevalent, it might
be well to know that, although in
themselves a comparatively harmless
and self-limiting infection, they can,
by improper care, progress into more
serious manifestations with disas-
trous consequences, according to an
official Health Service report, re-
One of the chief factors in the de-
velopment of more dangerous infec-
tions from a head cold, the report
stated, is the widespread habit of
nose blowing, improperly done.
When one has a cold, the mucous
membranes of the nose becomeswol-
len and inflamed. A large amount
of mucous is secreted in an attempt
to combat the infection, bringing
abbut a desire to blow the nose at
frequent intervals. However, if the
nose is not blown, the mucous either
220,000 Plants In
95 Year's Growth
The University Herbarium, started
95 years ago by Douglas Houghton,
pioneer Michigan geologist, today
boasts of over 220,000 examples of
plant life from every quarter of the
globe including hundreds of plants
found in Michigan.
In 1838 the Houghton botanical
specimens came to the University,
along with other natural history col-
lections made by this famous geolo-
gist. Thoughthe State originally in-
tended to charge the institution $4,-
000 for them, this proviso wascan-
celled in 1846.
A professor's home was the first
depository of the collection, where
they remained until 1841, when they
were removed to a large room in
Mason Hall, which became the Uni-
versity's first natural history mu-
In 1863 the Regents of the Uni-
versity could proudly report "an her-
barium, illustrative of the flora of
the state, containing about 1,500 spe-
cies, to which have been added about
400 species from the Southern states,
and 225 from Germany."
flows from the nose, .or else one
sneezes, thus clearing the nasal pas-
sages of the accumulated secretion.
During the past winter there were
five mastoid operations performed
upon University students, the major-
ity of which were caused by incorrect
blowing of the nose. It is suspected
that this habit causes about 90 per
cent of operations for mastoid, and
that it is frequently a cause of the
sinusitis associated with acute upper
respiratory infections as well.
The reason for the spread of in-
fection in this manner is that the
duct, called the Eustachian tube,
which leads from the back part of
the nose to the middle ear, is kept
closed by a very weak muscle, and
the increased intranasal pressure
brought about by blowing the nose
causes this muscle to relax. Thus
the infected material is often forced
up into the Eustachian tube where
it sets up a localized infection which
seals the tube, and, following the line
of least resistance,proceeds upward
through this easy route to the mid-
Such an infection in the middle
ear is characterized by severe pain
and deafness. If such acondition
occurs, an examination should be
made by a competent otologist so
that proper drainage may be estab-
lished and further complications pre-
vented, the report continued.
To diminish the risk of these com-
plications of the ordinary head cold,
it is well to know that the proper
drainage may be established and fur-
ther cozplications prevented, the re-

plications of the ordinary head cold,
it is well to know that the proper way
to blow the nose is to hold the hand-
kerchief gently against it, compress-
ing neither nostril, and blow softly.
Never hold one nostril shut and blow
the opposite side forcibly. The nose
may feel somewhat obstructed after
the above procedure, but this is due
to the swelling of inflammation and
is not the result of accumulated se-
cretions, the report concluded. 4
