In New York Dr. Frederick B. Rob-

other schools.
The National Student Federation
estimated 18,850 students participat-

Faculty Members Disapprove
Use Of 'Voluntary Euthanasia

Practice Too Hazardous,
1 Says Coller; Tends To
Remove Research Spur
Voluntary euthanasia, the practice
of painlessly putting to death those
suffering from incurable diseases, met
with almost unanimous disapproval
from faculty members of the medical
and social science staffs yesterday.
Interest in the age-old medical
problem was aroused here by a Lon-
don dispatch relating the confession
of a British doctor who committed
five acts of euthanasia. Although
there has been no recent discussion
on this subject in the United States,
the problem of euthanasia has held
considerable attention in Britain for
more than three years.
Dr. Frederick A. Coller, director of
the surgery department, felt that eu-
thanasia is a problem too "dangerous
to leave to one man or a group of
men," because "there is always a
chance of diagnostic error." The
prob:,m, he thought, was one of re-

he concluded, "but maybe we will be
100 years from now."
Mrs. Herbert S. Mallory, director of
the University social service and col-
umnist for the Detroit News, gave her
opinion as follows: "If in the future
euthanasia became a law it would be
placing too much reliance upon the
judgment of one physician and forc-
ing too much responsibility upon the
doctor called upon to make the deci-
sion. It appears to be against the
ethics of the medical profession, a
contradiction of the ideals of doctors
who are sworn to administer to the
needs of the sick individual --- not to
destroy life.
"Both the public and the medical
profession will require considerable
re-education before the practice of
euthanasia can become a socially ac-
ceptable remedy for suffering."
The one opinion partially favorable
to euthanasia was expressed by Prof.
John F. Shepard of the psychology
department who said, "These meas-
ures seem to me very proper provided
sufficient precautions are taken to
insure against abuse of the privilege.
Such precautions would include the
affirmation of recognized authorities
in cases of painful and incurable ill-
ness, and the consent of the patient
where rational persons are con-
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director
of the Health Service, believes that
euthanasia as a law "would have to
be forced upon the physicians rather
than the physicians sponsoring it,"
and that "it would require a very
grave adjustment in the physician's
tradition - that'he is to attempt to
save the human life until the last."
"It looks very good as a theoretical
proposition," Prof. Arthur E. Wood
of the sociology department said, "but
it is fraught with grave dangers. If
it could be administered in the sound-

CHICAGO, Nov. 8.- (Special to
The Daily) - Michigan's football
team worked out on Stagg Field here
this afternoon in preparation for its
third Big Ten encounter tomorrow
with Illinois before an Illini home-
coming crowd expected to reach 30,-
A fair sized crowd saw the Wolver-
ines go through a light passing and
kicking drill which was topped off by
a brisk signal practice.
The squad will rest tonight at the
Hotel Windemere before leaving for
Champaign at 9 a.m. tomorrow to
battle to maintain its Conference
lead. Ohio State's Buckeye eleven,
here to do battle with the Chicago
Maroons is also quartered at the
Windemere. The Buckeyes and
Minnesota are tied with the Wolver-
ines for final place in the Big Ten.
Coach Kipke and his players are
far from confident about tomorrow's
engagement with the pupils of the
wily Bob Zuppke. They expect to
see an Illini team keyed to its finest
edge despite the injury rumors which
appear to have half of the Indians on

gridders expect to see but one Illinois

ference. Les Lindberg, star of the
backfield, Ken Nelson, veteran end,
and fullback John Theodorerare ex-
pected to be ready for action after
being out for sometime.
Michigan, on the other hand, ap-
pears to be in its best shape of the
season, with John Viergever, who has
been limping for several days from
a persistent thigh injury, ready to
bolster the left side of the line from
his tackle post. Chris Everhardus,
fragile running back, also appears to
be fully recovered from sundry hurts
that have bothered him for two weeks.
Kipke intends to stick to the same
lineup he has used in practice all
week, with Stan Schuman staying at
left guard and defensive center, and
Ernie Johnson and Stark Ritchie
making the first starts of their Var-
sity careers at right end and left half
Rinaldi May Push Wright
Joe Rinaldi, who has been bothered
dl season by a lingering cold, appears
to have recovered his full vigor, and
many observers are looking for fire-
works should he replace Schuman or
Harry Wright.
With Sayre out, the Illini- defense
should prove even more susceptible
than expected to the short passes of
Capt. Bill Renner, the end sweeps of
Ritchie, and the power smashes of
Cedric Sweet that proved so valuable
in the Pennsylvania victory. The ab-
sence of the Indian pivotman from
his post behind the line may be the
key to the ball game, because the at-
tack of the Zuppke eleven is expected
to prove about equal to that of the

The Lineups


Scientists See And Hear What
Dog's Brain Cells Are Doing

Experiments which yield photo-
graphs of the activity of the dog's
brain cells are being carried on in
the Medical School by Dr. Robert
Gesell, head of the department of
physiology, and John W. Bricker and
Conway S. Magee, research assistants.
In Dr. Gesell's laboratories there
are fine instruments which not only
photograph the activity of the res-
piratory centers of the brain, but also
transmit through a loudspeaker, the
sounds which distinguish one nerve
center from another.
Completely anaesthetized animals
are placed on a specially constructed
"dog-board" and the brain is then
exposed. A pair of fine, needle-like
electrodes are inserted into the brain
with a mechanical manipulator which


hear various sounds

which they can identify as originating
in definite nerve centers in the brain.
When the electrodes have reached
the respiratory center, for instance'
the transmitter yields a regular beat-
ing sound which is recognized as
coming from this source because of
its incidence with breathing counts.
Were it not for the enormous am-
plification, these sounds would be
totally inaudible, but with it, a map-
ping of the approximate location of
the nerve centers is made possible,
Dr. Gesell said.
After the experimenters have
found, through sound, the location of
the desired center, they inspect the
photograph from the oscillograph,
which is a graph picture of the ac-
tivity of the nerve center.

'Glared. Newsreels concerning it have
been shown in 9,000 theaters, 45,000
radio programs have been devoted
to it, and 427,000 magazine pages
have described and discussed it, Mr.
Palmer said. ,
After pointing out that the FHA
had inaugurated both a new form
of bank loan and a new form of in-
surance, the speaker asked that the
members of the association urge the
purchase of homes by those paying
rent and having "good habits" in
their own cities.
Arthur F. Bassett, manager of the
real estate department of the Detroit
Trust Co., and J. French Paddock,
Detroit architect, spoke at the morn-
ing session of the association.
