System Needs
Basic Chanuge,
Thomas Holds
Favors Industrial Unions
And Socialist Program
As Cure For Unrest
The causes of present day social
unrest liein the growing awareness
that poverty and insecurity are en-
tirely unnecessary, Norman Thomas'
Presidential nominee of the Socialist
Party in the 1936 campaign, told 450
persons Saturday in the Masonic
Temple here.
Thomas maintained that the cure
for this unrest can be realized only by
a basic change in the economic sys-
tem, which in turn can be brought
about only by strong industrial
unions, a tefinite socialistic program
and a new modern philosophy to fit
every day problems and replace the
present "conglomeration of conflict-
ing remnants of past philosophies."
Foresees Class Struggle
The present issue before society is
America, the Socialist leader de-
clared, is whether we shall follow
the corporative, ultra-conservative
fascist doctrines or -the doctrine of
the collectivism for a cooperative
commonwealth. He prophesied that
the working class struggle will be
waged in this country "in the raw to
a degree unknown even in Europe."
"According to the Brookings Insti-
tute," he recited, "in 1929 the United
States had the capacity to provide an
annual income of $2,000 minimum to
families in the lowest brackets with-
out reducing the incomes of those at
the top. Poverty in the midst of
plenty is unnecessary today."
Scores American Way
Scoring the "American way, which
gives a man 30 cents an hour for 72
hours work per week in a Flint cot-
ton products plant with bad ventila-
tion," Thomas said, "there is 'no vir-
tue in patience under such condi-
America is entering a temporary
period of recovery, but will not attain
social stability because the production
for, profit system has not been
changed, he added.
"Nero did a better job of giving
bread and circuses to the proletariat
than Roosevelt is doing," Thomas
continued, "and the present security
legislation will prove dreadfully un-
satisfactory because workers will
have to pay, as consumers, the pay-
roll taxes of their employers."
Thomas criticized the tendency to
compare present standards of living
with past standards. "Saying that
the average American has more bath-
tubs than Henry VIII means nothing,
especially considering that thousands
of southern sharecroppers have no
bathtubs," he said.
Praises Cooperatives
During the brief question period
Mr. Thomas said that most workers
are beginning to see the superiority
of industrial unionism, but that this
alone is no answer to present Amer-
ican needs. He praised consumers'
cooperatives and in answer to the
"usual human nature question that
always makes me weary," the speaker
said "there will always be trouble
and pain in the world, but if men had
always approached progress from
that angle we would still be living
under trees and in caves."

Fraternity Permits
GIve 49 Freshlnil
Forty-nine freshmen have been
granted permission to move into fra-
ternity houses for the second semes-
ter, it was disclosed yesterday by
Dean Joseph A. Bursley.
The requests were divided among
members of 16 houses. The highest
number of freshmen permitted to
move into one house was seven, grant-
ed to Theta Chi Fraternity. Fresh-
men to whom permission was grant-
ed before their final grades were de-
termined and who subsequently
failed to attain a C average, will
have to move out of their fraternity
Special arrangements were made
with two fraternities whose scholastic
average last year was below the all-
men's average of 75.8, allowing fresh-<
mnen to move in on the condition that
if the houses failed to equal or sur-;
pass the all-men's average during the
school year 1936-37 they will be
put on social probation for a semes-

Student Health Services Are Mobilized
In Eflort To End Tuberculosis Scourge

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
a series of articles on the tuberculin
test which will be given Feb. 23 through
27 for sophomore, junior and senior
women by the Health Service.
Physicians having charge of stu-
dent health in various universities
throughout the country have recent-
ly become interested in attempting
to eliminate tuberculosis from their
campuses, Dr. H. Marvin Pollard, sec-
retary of the medical school, said yes-
"Such universities as Minnesota,
Wisconsin, California, Pennsylvania,
Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Yale and
Michigan have undertaken extensive
surveys to determine the cases of ac-
tive tuberculosis among their own
students,' 'he said. Michigan will
give the Mantou test for tuberculosis
Feb. 23 through 27 for Sophomore,
junior and senior women who have
previously tested negative.
In 1933 Dr. R. H. Stiehm of the
University of Wisconsin started doing
tuberculin tests on all entering stu-
dents, and then doing chest X-Rays

on those students that gave a posi-
tive test, Dr. Pollard said. "By this
method, individuals with tuberculosis
are discovered before the process has l
had time to develop to any great ex-
tent," he declared.
Many Cases Found
"Many cases are round that have
neither signs nor symptoms of the
disease and with proper care respond
very well to treatment," he stated. Dr.
Pollard explained that if these same
individuals had not been found while
the disease was still early,. they would
have remained up and around and
the disease would have progressed.
Physicians at the University of
Minnesota performed tuberculin tests
on 2,500 students entering there in
1931. Tests were followed by X-rays
on those who reacted to teh test, Dr.
Pollard said. By this method they
found 15 cases of tuberculosis. Dr.
H. S. Diehl of that university said in
discussing the advantage of this type
of examination, "had we depended
upon physical examination and his-
tories for ordering X-rays of the

chest, 10 or 12 of the cases would
have been missed."
The Committee on Tuberculosis of
the American Student Health Asso-
ciation recommencts a tuberculin test
which would be repeated on negative
reactors at least once a year, and a
routine chest X-ray on all new stu-
dents with subsequent check-up X-
rays on all those that change from
a negative to a positive tuberculin
test, Dr. Pollard stated. He empha-
sized the fact that it is an integral
part of each student's education to
participate in such a program of pre-
Testgd At California
The University of California re-
ported that without any special
method of finding cases of tubercu-
losis during the period from 1920 to
1933, an average of 10 cases de-
veloped yearly among their co-eds,
he said. Since 1933 they have used
certain routine methods in detecting
this disease, he said. "It is their
opinion that when routine tubercu-

cases of active tuberculosis, but with
such a routine the cases are detected
in a much earlier stage," Dr. Pollard

by chorus from Ziegfeld Follies."
Miss Connell, who was among the
10 women chosen as the prettiest on
the campus by the Gargoyle, decried
the plethora of cherry queens, bean
queens, potato queens and even cam-
pus quens. "The hazards of this Big
Ten contest were mixed with irony,
too," she said, "because the student
salesman who sold the most tickets
to the ball was to be permitted to
give the "Queen" a kiss and have the
first dance with her."
