Barcroft ITells
Of Lung Origin
In First Talk
British Professor Employs
Movies In Describing
Foetal Life
The origin of one of mammalian
life's most distinctive characteristics,
the respiratory movement, was traced
yesterday by Sir Joseph Barcroft,
professor of physiology in Cambridge
University, in the semester's first
University lecture.
Using motion pictures of the foetal
development of sheep, Sir Joseph ex-
hibited the various stages by which
the passive nature of the foetus gives
way, first, to unorganized disturb-
ances, and then, to more specialized
movements analagous to respiration.
At first, Sir Joseph noted, the body
movements are of the extensor type,
and the effect of an external shock
is to cause the head of the fotus to
jerk outwards. Later the typical
movement is a fiexationhand prod-
ding the foetus into action results in
a downward and inward movement.
Likewise, shortly after this stage is
reached, pulsations of the diaphragm
sector of the foetus begin to appear
in response to external stimuli. How-
ever, these pulsations are not of con-
tinuous duration,
Gradually the extent to which
these pulsations persist is prolonged,
and the foetus is possessed of a con-
tinual movement which resembles the
respiratory movement, Sir Joseph
continued. Also, although no oxygen
is taken in through the head, these
respiratory movements exhibit the
same speeding up after shock which
is characteristic of normal breathing,
he further pointed out.
190 State High
Teams To Join
Debate Contest
A record enrollment of 190 high
schools in the state-wide contests
sponsbred by the Michigan High
School Forensic Association and the
University Extension Division was
predicted today by William P. Hal-
stead, manager of the association.
The present enrollment marks an
increase of 15 'over last year and
even more enrollments are expected,
Dr. Halstead said.
The debates for which the schools
are entered will be conducted in two
series, with the first debate of a pre-
liminary series on Nov. 27. Following
the preliminaries, an elimination
series will be conducted with the
qualifying schools in the preliminar-
ies participating.
The elimination tilts will end April
30 with the twentieth annual State
Championship Debate held in Hill
Auditorium, Ann Arbor, between the
two remaining schools. Gold watches
will be presented to each contestant,
in this debate.
Much interest has been aroused,
Dr. Halstead said, in the question
chosen for all Association debates
this season. It concerns the govern-
ment ownership and operation of all
electrical utilities. Material on the
subject is being sent to all participat-
ing schools through the courtesy of
the library extension service of the
University, it was explained.
Sixty Per Cent Rise t
In Forestry Shown

Enrollment in the School of For-
estry and Conservation has increased
60 per cent this year, according to'
an announcement by acting Dean D.
M. Matthews of the forestry school.
This year's increase in the num-
ber of students majoring in forestry
required ; the addition of second sec-
tions in eight classes, the first time
in its history that the forestry school
has had two sections in any class, it
was explained. Dean Matthews esti-
mated the number of students plan-
ning to take up forestry to be about
30 in the sophomore class and be-
tween 25 and 35 in the freshman

Physiotherapy Pool At Hospital
Is Proving Hope For Crippled

The new physiotherapy swimming l
pool at the University of Michigan
Hospital, with other therapeuticl
equipment recently added to the hos-
pital's equipment, has already given
mhany victims of infantile paralysis
hope for restoration of the use of+
their crippled limbs, Dr. Harley A.
Haines, medical director of the hos-
pital, explained.
Installed at the hospital through
a joint effort of the Horace Rackham
Foundation and the WPA, the pool.
is as modern and completely equipped
as the one in the Warm Springs, Ga.,+
infirmary founded by President
Roosevelt, it was explained. s
"The object of the water treat-
ment is to get the victim's muscles
into a condition so good that if the
nerves respond to treatment the1

stricken limbs will have the physical
strength to perform the normal func-
tions," Dr. Haines said.
Part of the pool equipment is an
overhead, chain-suspended stretcher
large enough to accommodate as
many as seven children simultane-
ously. After the children have been
removed from their beds and placed
on the stretcher, it is lowered into the
invigorating water in the pool. It is
this treated water which permits the
children to exercise their limbs freely.
Additional equipment installed by
the Rackham Foundation and the
WPA includes -a large tub for victhims
suffering from infectious skin dis-
eases, a special tub for light therapy
treatments and other facilities. All
treatments and exercises are pre-
scribed by orthopedic surgeons, Dr.
Haines said.
Construction of the new pool in-
volved an intricate building problem

Making use of a store room, WPA
workmen removed partitions, built
concrete foundations and lowered a
pool from the floor above to its new
base, at a federal cost of $8,079.
The Rackham Foundation contrib-
uted more than $16,000 towards the
purchase of equipment.
