Dr. Bell Declares
Flu On Campus
Number Of Cases So Far
Only Slightly Above
Last Year's Period
Declaring that the influenza epi-
demic on the camous is not aarm-
ing, Dr. Margaret Bell, acting director
of the Health Service said that the
number of students treated for colds
during the first 12 days of January
is only slightly higher than for the
same period last year.
There were 624 students treated
for acute upper respiratory infec-
tions or "colds" the first 12 days of
this month, Dr. Bell said. Twentv
of these were influenza cases, and
three had pneumonia. During the
same period last year 416 were treat-
ed for colds of which two were pneu-
monia patients, she stated.
More Than Last Year
There are 10,646 students now en-
rolled in the University, and the
number treated for colds during the
first 12 days of this month represents
only 5.9 per cent of the whole stu-
dent body, while 4.2 per cent of
the students were treated for colds
from Jan. 1 to Jan. 13, 1936.
In the University Hospital 21 stu-
dents were treated for colds during
the first 12 days of this month of
which five were influenza cases. In
January, 1936, there were 162 pa-
tients treated for colds, and in Jan-
uary, 1935, 179 were treated for colds
in the Hospital.
The number of patients confined
to the Hospital with influenza is
"possibly running a little higher than
average for the present time," de-
clared Dr. H. Marvin Pollard, secre-
tary of the Medical School. "I doubt
if it is much higher than the cor-
responding period for 1933 when the
number of flu patients in the Hos-
pital was slightly higher than usual,"
In January, 1933 there were 15.8
per cent of the student body treated
for colds in the Health Service, which
is the highest percentage recorded in
January for 10 years. The next
highest in the number of cases treat-
ed by the Health Service came in
January, 1931 when 1,213 cases were
diagnosed as "colds" which repre-
sented 13.2 per cent of the student
State Commission Report
Gives Michigan Chanice
For IReal Progress
Prof. Arthur Dunham of the Uni-
versity Institute of Public and Social
Administration, and a member of the
state Welfare and Relief Study Cor-
mission, exhorted the Ann Arbor So-
cial Service Council Tuesday night
to use its influence in bringing about
the drafting of the recommendations
outlined in the commission's report.
Professor Dunham who is also vice-
president of the Ann Arbor Council,
stated that he believed the legislators
would be glad to know the opinions
of their constituents especially if
they are well-informed upon the sub-
ject. He urged that the means were
effective and that the cause, the
drafting of some of the "most revo-
lutionary measures in the history of
the state" was of far-reaching signi-
"'Thereport of the Michigan Wel-
fare and Relief Study Commission
gives Michigan the opportunity of
a generation to take her place among
the most progressive states in the
Union in the organization and ad-
ministration of social welfare ser-
vices affecting more than 300,000 per-
sons throughout the state," he said.
Much credit was given to Harold
D. Smith of Ann Arbor, executive
director of the Michigan Municipal
League, for his leadership.
In financing the public welfare ser-
vices, Professor Dunham pointed out
two recommendations which assign
certain departments to ostensibly ali-
en heads. He stated that the commis-
sion felt it was necessary in some
instances to do this in order that the
state be eligible for Social Security
funds from the federal government.
