Geologists Deny
New Exploring
Course Rumor
Reader's Digest Describes
Entire Program In Storyy
On Unusual Courses
A great deal of publicity has re-
cently been given to a "phantom"
course offered by the University. The
geology department has been asked
many questions concerning the
"course in exploration" which was
mentioned by the New York Herald
Tribune and quoted in the Apr'il is-
sue of the Reader's Digest.
"A course for those interested in
adventure and scientfic methods of
exploration is given at the Univer-
sity of Michigan," the article says.
"The first summer work. was done
in the Yukon, the students traveling
slowly across the uncharted wilds,
mapping the land, studying plant
and animal life, and carefully esti-
mating natural resources and geo-
graphical conditions."
'No Such Course'
"To my knowledge no such course
is now given in the University," Prof.
Ralph Belknap of the geology de-
partment said yesterday. "But some
aspects, of the work mentioned in the
article are covered in other courses."
The course was described in the
Reader's Digest on a page entitled
"What's New in College Courses."
Another contribution on the same
page mentioned the broadcasting ac-
tivities of the University.
Broadcasting Described
"The University of Michigan is
one of the numerous colleges now
offering courses in radio broadcast-
ing.. Under the tutelage of broad-
casters from Detroit, more than 100
students prepare, direct and present
daily programs, and study all phases'
of the business from the sale of com-
mercial programs to station financ-
ing. The fact that the national
radio chains will employ only uni-
versity graduates as broadcasters has
increased interest in the course."
The article goes on to discuss other
news on the educational front. It,
appears that many boys and girls
have courses open to them which
were unheard of when mother and
dad went to college. For example,
zoology students at the University of
Miami do deep-sea diving and study
life on the floor of the Gulf Stream
-no cramming out of musty text
books for them!

The Fever That Blooms In Spring
Has Reached Michigan Campus

Cod Liver Oil Better Cure
Than Sulphur, Molasses,
Health Service Says
At this time of the year, as the
temperature increases, persons seem
to tire out more easily, Dr. William
M. Brace of the Health Service said
'Tis spring fever!!
Years ago the remedy for spring
fever was sulphur and molasses
which was thought to purify the
blood, Dr. Brace declared. "Today we
know that this is not beneficial, but
that it possibly produced a good psy-
chological effect on the person who
thought he was sick," he said. Those
who feel rundown at this time of
the year, now take cod liver oil and
haliver oil vitamin capsules, he de-
clared. "In many cases they seem to
help," he said.
"We notice an annual increase in
mild colds and sinus trouble in the
spring of the year," Dr. Brace said.
"These colds often last a long time,
and leave the person depleted and
worn out. At the first signs of spring

weather some students unduly ex-
pose th;emselves by failing to wear
coats and hats."
The present remedy for spring fev-
er and that "tired feeling" is suffi-
cient sleep, exercise in the open air
and moderation in all activities, he
declared. If students can get enough
rest during Spring Vacation they can
overcome fatigue and build up their
general body resistance. A number of
students, for the purpose of rest and
relaxation, are planning trips.
