Report Reveals
Big Increase
In Pneumonia
Health Service Announces
Two-Month Total Of 32
Cases In University
Thirty-two cases of pneumonia, a
large increase over previous years,
have been cared for in the last two
monthsat the University Health
Service, it was disclosed yesterday by
the monthly report of the Health
Service, prepared by Dr. W. M. Brace.

'Hoot Mon It Pays
To 1)o It Scotch,
A n Arbor Decides
Ann Arbor has cast aside patriotic
allegiance to the red, white and blue
to pay tribute to the bonny plaids of
tjauld Scotland. At least as far as
liquor is concerned.
When the state liquor commission
dumped a large consignment of the
' imported spirits on the market, resi-
dents of the University town decided
it pays to go Scotch. Although Ann
Arbor has always had an affinity for
Scotch whiskies, the action of the
board has brought boom times to the
local branch of the commission, it
was announced last night.
The spurt in trade was noticed al-
aost immediately after the sale was
pened last Wednesday. Final tab-
lnations, however, will not be made
antil the sale ends, Dec. 31.

Union Professor
Will VisitCampus
Announcement that Prof. Reinhold
Niebuhr of Union Theological Semi-
nary has accepted an invitation to'
visit the campus on Jan. 21 was made
yesterday by William Wilsnack, presi-
dent of the Student Christian As-
During his visit Professor Niebuhr
will give a public lecture, address a
faculty luncheon, and meet with the
SCA cabinet.
Before assuming his present posi-
tion, Prof. Niebuhr was widely known
as the pastor of a Detroit church. Two
i- -.- -- - - -

of his recent books, "Moral Man and
Immoral Society" and "Reflections of
the End of an Era" have been the
cause of an extended controversy in
liberal and theological circles.
Professor Niebuhr was in Ann Ar-
bor two years ago when he addressed
a meeting under the auspices of a
number of campus religious groups in
Hill Auditorium.

Stewart Portraits Of The
Washingtons Subjects Of
Talks ByAdams, Abbot
The Atheneum Portraits of George
and Martha Washington, painted by
Gilbert Stewart, were discussed yes-
terday by Miss Adelaide Adams, in-
structor in fine arts, and Miss Marie
Abbot, Grad., in a continuation of
the Fine Art series over the Uni-
versity Broadcasting Service.
'The{fame of Gilbert Stuart as a
portrait painter," Miss Adams said,
"rests upon his ability to interpret
both the physical facts and the char-
acter of his sitter, to keep his own
personality subtly adjusted to that of
his subject, and finally to bring great
technical beauty to this individual
Stuart, she continued, preferred to
paint only the head and shoulders,
and usually slighted details of cos-
tume and background.dTheface was
his chief interesttand he posed his
subject simply so that he might bring
out his or her best and most individ-
ual features. Both the Atheneum
portraits have those qualities of poise
and balance without monotony which
are essential in good composition.
Michigan Chemists
Will HoldMeeting
The semi-annual meeting of the
Michigan College Chemistry Teach-
ers Association will be held tomorrow
in Room 122 of the Chemistry Build-
ing, it was learned last night from
Prof. R. K. McAlpine of the chem-
istry department.
The meeting, which will begin at
10:30 a.m., will be featured by two
addresses from members of the chem-
istry department. First Prof. H. H.
Willard will talk on "Ultraviolet Flu-
orescence," and then Prof. J. O. Hal-
ford will discuss "Preparation and
Properties of Some Compounds of
Heavy Hydrogen."
At 12:30 a luncheon in the League
will be held for the members of the
Association and in an afternoon ses-
sion there will be a general discus-
sion of the eltent to which modern
theories of atomic and molecular
structure are being used in the teach-
ing of chemistry.

Even though rubber checks and
bad accounts are the topic of con-
versation throughout the greater part
of the country, Michigan students are
still legitimately paying their bills,
according to local merchants.
Local business establishments,
especially on State St., reported in a
general survey that 95 per cent of
students whose accounts they held
were paying satisfactorily. Most of
the stores also said that 40 per cent
of their student business was done
on credit. They added that of the
five per cent who were delinquent,
most of them had given adequate-
reason and were trying to pay.
New students are continually ex-
pressing their surprise to merchants
over their willingness to extend credit
to them. In answer to this question,
the merchants declared that from
their past experience the students
were especially honest. Moreover,
they said that when a merchant plays
"square" with the student, he most
always gets the same treatment in
return. Most of the merchants
praised the students in this manner
but said that they could not extend
credit wholly upon this basis of past
experience, and some of them used
precautionary methods.
Many of the stores require students
to fill out blanks and others merely
ask questions.hOne merchant in par-
ticular, told the story of a persistent
student who, when asked why he
wanted to open an account so late
in the year, replied that he positively
had to open oneanow because he was
behind in his allowance and had to
have cash to pay for his beer.
Another merchant who highly
praised the honesty of students said,
that in the history of his store he
had only received one bad check. He
explained that a well dressed young
man came into his store one day and

asked to get a check cashed. The
merchant asked him several questions
and found that he was a freshman
student by the name of Kelly. Since
the merchant had a good Irish name
also, he immediately cashed the
check. But next day, when he went to
the bank and found the check of
no value, he was astounded and de-
clared that the man couldn't have
been an Irishman,for no Irishman
would cheat another.
Farr Reveals
Project Here
Plans for the Rural Resettlement
Administration to purchase a number
of farms in Washtenaw County and
other parts of Southern Michigan
with Federal funds were revealed yes-
terday by R. G. Carr, state director
of the rural resettlement project.
In his announcement Mr. Carr in-
vited farmers wishing to sell property.
to the Federal government to submit
their offers before Dec. 31, when the
farms to be purchased will be selected
from the offers made on a basis of
the appraisal and the price asked.
The land will be bought by the
Federal government for redistribu-
tion in smaller farms on long term
leases to families removed from
poorer farms elsewhere, young mar-
ried farm couples, land renters and
normally farming families who be-
cause of lack of financial backing or
poor facilities have been unable to
make a living elsewhere and have
moved to town.
The government will not attempt
to bargain with farmers over prices,
Mr. Carr said in warning farmers to
name the lowest price they are will-
ing to accept for their property.

Several of the patients were ser-
iously ill for several days but only,
one case proved fatal. The neglect
of the common cold in many in-
stances was the cause, Dr. Brace said.
An increase in pneumonia was re-
ported to be prevalent in other parts
of this and neighboring states. Fif-
teen of the cases occurred in No-
vember, the report revealed, an in-
crease of 13 over the same month
in 1934.
A drop in the number of infirmary.
patients from 194 in November of
last year to 136 for the same period
this year was due mainly to the long
period of care required by the pneu-
monia patients and the limited num-
ber of beds, Dr. Brace stated.
Forty-three food handlers, both
students and non-students from one
University-managededining room,
were examined for evidence of com-
municable diseases. "It would be
ideal," Dr. Brace said, "to have food
handlers of all of our eating places
so examined."
Dispensary calls numbered 11,409,
the report showed, an increase of al-
most 2,000 over the same period in
1933 and of 300 for the 1934 period.
One case of typhoid fever, the source
of contagion of which was not found,
was also reported.
Other services included in the No-
vember report are: Laboratory exam-
inations, 2,419; physiotherapy treat-
ments, 996; dermatology treatments,
316; sensitization examinations, 85;
mental hygiene interviews, 1,631; X-
ray examinations, 437; eye refrac-
tions 193; nose and throat opera-
tions, 15; room calls, 145; hospital
patients, 30; acute respiratory in-
fections, "colds," 652; tuberculosis ac-
tive (lungs), 5; gastro-entercolitis,
70; and dietitian conferences, 180.
(:4ontract Let For
New Junior High
The contract for general construc-
tion work on the new west side junior
high school was awarded to Henry
J. Hochrein & Son, local contract-
ing firm, Superintendent of Schools
Otto W. Haisley announced yester-
day. The contract was let at a meet-
ing of the Board of Education held
Wednesday night.
The Hochrein firm's bid of $244,-
006, lowest of the three submitted to
the board, will bring the estimated
total cost for the school to $368,000,
almost $50,000 above the original esti-
League Ballroom

Ann Arbor indulged in the lower
)rices from the extent of buying one
bottle to a case. Town people ac-
counted for the greatest bulk of -the
purchase, it was stated. University
students bought only 10 per cent of
ae liquors.
