Freshmen W omen Participate In Newly Planned Fail Sp0rts P




Everyone has a hankering these days to get outdoors ... to feel the firm
smack of the hockey ball against the stick or to hear the whang of the
tennis racquet as it hits the ball . . . And there are those who would
aspire to the accomplishments of William Tell ...
* * *
Though their class has had only two practices, perhaps Barbara Heath
er Virginia Thielk, both Ann Arbor '39-ers, could already persuade sons
of Michigan to support the traditional apple ... They are usually surrounded
b. flocks of admirers anyway .. . . And any stray nominations from those
who would like to act as subjects will be accepted with much pleasure ....
.mines will form single file on the right, please . . . . Martha Bragg, that
well-known Tri-Delt, will probably have much to say about all that
because she has been one of the leading female archery enthusiasts these
past two years that she has been on campus ....
Militaristic Trend . .
Along with archery, we begin to think of riflery . . . . Everyone has been
keeping pretty quiet about the kind of shots they are this year . . . . Wait
'til Harriet Kanouse gets back on the range, and then we'll see which of
the newcomers will spend their days practicing to beat her and their
nights dreaming about a victory over this perfectly swell shooter ......... .
* * *
And you should just see those freshmen swarming around the bowling
alleys waiting for an opportunity to play . . . . One innocent enthusiast with
lots of pep was teetering around in a pair of high heeled pumps, just waiting
for a chance to try . . . . Needless to say, she had never played before, or
perhaps she would have been more adequktely shod for the occasion .. .
Some hidden talent has appeared in the person of Jane O'Ferrall, '37,
of Sorosis fame . . . . Her line is fencing ... . She has behind her a great
career -including a junior high school fencing championship . . . . Her
difficulty seems to be in finding an opponent brave enough to attack her ....
Perhaps Margaret Cutler, better known as "Cuddles," who dabbled in fencing
last year, might be a possible candidate for this position if she gets over
her stiffnes acquired in rhythms class ....
Crazy Over Horses .. .
And on the way to Palmer Field, 'we caught Muriel Fink in brown
breeches and tailored jacket taking a few final minutes of relaxation before
going out to face the horses . . . At the field, Ellen Rohblatt was waving
a tennis racquet with the emphatic declaration that she would play tennis
even if it were snowing . . . . She almost had a chance to carry out her
threat . ... Most of the blue and yellow clad freshmen were already well
on their way toward congealment . . . . By the way, have you seen the cute
new phys. ed. outfits - yellow or blue playsuits and navy sweatshirts plus
slacks? . . . Farley Ullrich seemed to be having plenty of trouble battling
not only her opponent but the wind as well .... Guess we just looked lazyt
'cause they set us to chasing balls .... All of which calls to mind plansI
for the fall tennis tournament . . . . There are several names so far on
the list in the W.A.A. building, but we're sure there are even more tennisC
enthusiasts who will sign up before Oct. 7.i
* * *
AnAppleADay. ..
Just before we went back to the field after hearing all about the biga
tennis tournament which is approaching, we glimpsed Pete Hartwig standingf
in the inner hall munching an apple . . . . She was trying to guess why the
signers-up so far all preferred to play single . . . . Hockey practices will bei
held every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 4:15 now . .. So we dashedt
out to view the first one . . . . It seemed colder than ever when we went t
outside again, believe it or not!t
* * f
Yellows vs. Blues.. ..
Lois Spreen, blond Newberryite, was playing center, and Louise Lock- 1
mann, Ruth White, Barbara Eppstein, and Thelma Peterson were doing their
best to keep the Yellow from getting more than three goals from thet
Blues ....
Voted the most outstanding player of the afternoon was the smallt
wire-haired terrior who shadowed the ball even more diligently than any of"
the players . . . . Our W.A.A. prexy, Brenda Parkinson, was helping uphold
the honor of the Yellows . . . . We estimated that there must have been
about 40 beginners learning the rudiments of hockey at the other end of
the field, but we were too absolutely cold and shivering to investigate further,

For Today's Game

Dr. Bell Explains University
Tuberculosis Prevention Drive



Health Talk

Especially appropriate for today's
football game is this chic swagger
coat that provides sufficient warmth
against the cold winds.

Warm Clothes Are
Predicted At First
Fall Football Game
Yesterday's small snow flurry
should serve as a timely warning for
today's football event. Dress warm-
ly! A steamer-rug or two will not be
at all amiss. Remember how cold
ne's ankles and knees end hands get
in spite of all the excitement. Wear
your warmest pair of gloves too.
Bright mittens are decidedly "in."
And voluminous scarfs, topping the
accessory list, will be found most com-
f orting.
The stadium is the best place imag-
inable to flaunt your swagger coats
that are so strictly new and popular
this fall. The type is a happy com-
bination of style and comfort. The
fullness, falling from shoulder line
to hem is flattering to the tall and
short alike and that extra width will
be found most convenient when
climbing the steps at the bowl. Heavy
tweeds, caracul (see cut) or Persian
Lamb are favorites.
Gay sweaters or jersey blouses add
the necessary touch of color. And in
speaking of colors it is necessary to
mention a few of the predominating
ones this season.
Brown tones of the most interesting
variety are being displayed in all the
shops. They range from a deep, vel-
vety shade to a bright, warm Spanish
tile or terra-cotta. Shades of gray
are also in vogue. They are particu-
larly desirable for the interesting
combinations which can be made with
blues, reds, greens and browns. By
the way, the newest fall color for
accessories is "dubonnet," a pleasant
deep wine color, bright enough to add
life, yet neutral enough to tone in
with gray, black and particularly
And shoes! They are nicer this
year than ever before. We can now,
be completely comfortable and com-
pletely beautiful as far as foot-wear
is concerned. This is indeed a para-
dox and a great stride in the direction
of sensible, becoming styles. Ties,
ghillies, zippers, or buckles are equally

Positive Reaction To Skin
Test Not Indication Of
Actual Infection
This article is written in an effort
to make clear to the students, es-
pecially the women who have had the
advantage of this test, its value in
the prevention of tuberculosis. It is
well to remember that the key-note
of the Health Service work is preven-
tion. A very serious and enlightened
effort is made to use every device to
anticipate andmeradicate disease. In
such a program it immediately be-
comes obvious that the shortest course
to success is the accurate education
of the student in preventive measures.
The skin test coupled with the x-
ray is at present the most refined and
only way of recognizing the very
earliest stages of this disease. Ob-
viously this becomes an expensive
method when carried out on a large
group of students and necessarily is of
great Advantage to such a group. This
test was given to women students be-
cause young 'women of college age
represent the group that is most sus-
ceptible to pulmonary tuberculosis.
Since September 1931 this skin test
has been incorporatedin women's
entering medical examinations. A
preparation called tuberculin was in-
jected into the skin of the arm, and
if a red halo appeared in 48 hours,
the test was read as positive. About
30% sreacted. Each individual who
had a positive reaction, was given
the privilege of x-ray. Of the total
number x-rayed, about 3% were re-
garded as deserving special care.
Negative Reaction
The interpretation of a negative re-
action is generally that the individual
has never been infected with the Tu-
bercule Bacillus. The meaning of a
positive reaction is that the individual
has at some time during life, from
infancy on, been so infected. It
probably does not mean tuberculous
disease of an active kind, but simply
means previous infection healed. It
may have been from a bottle of raw
milk from infected cows taken dur-
ing infancy, or the chance contact
with a carrier of the disease in the
home, school, or elsewhere. It does
not mean susceptibility to this or any
other disease. The harmlessness of
the test has been demonstrated over
and over again on many hundreds of
thousands of children in this country
and the world over. Two or three
weeks after the infection takes place,
certain changes occur in the body
which makes the skin sensitive to
tuberculin and this sensitiveness as a
rule persists through life. When in-
fection takes place we know that over
90% of it localizes in the lungs and
that lung disease is the most serious
aspect of tuberculosis.
Therefore, in all positive reactions,
an x-ray of the lungs should be taken
and the presence or absence, extent,
localization and character of the in-

fected focus searched for. In Dr.
Chadwick's experience withyschool
children about 30 out of every hun-
dred showed evidence of past infec-
tion, and about five had signs of its
localization in the glands in the chest,
while one in every two hundred had
definite tuberculosis of the lungs that
needed immediate treatment. There
is no other way of being sure to find
this one -student in two hundred that
needs prompt help. In other cases,
one finds enough old healed tuber-
culosis to be able to advise the student
about their future life, that might
avoid awakening a dormant disease
focus. This is simply taking the bull
by the horns, instead of waiting until
the disease becomes disabling. It
means that the healthy have to go
through a lot of seemingly unneces-
sary examinations to protect the few
and have their own assurance of
health. There is no other way of
separating the many from the few.
Infant Tuberculin
With these facts in mind, it is in-
teresting to realize that while rela-
tively few infants present readings of
positive tuberculin that with each
added year, an increasing number
show positive reaction.
Now it is obvious that if the infec-
tion is found in larger and larger per-
centages as students grow older, it is
not enough to content one's self with
one examinationaat the age of 18. If
one is negative at 18, one might as
easily become positive at 19 or 20 as
the other had become positive before
18. In fact, the older one gets and
the wider contact one makes with life,
the more opportunity there is for in-
fection. Therefore, it is important
that students who are negative one
year should be re-tested later to de-
termine if infection may have taken
place during the interval. If it has,
an x-ray will betaken and judged
in the light of the findings. It is
doubly mportant that this negatve
group be followed for it is among
the young women of this age that we
have had the most difficulty in con-
trolling tuberculosis.
