The problems to be solved in ex-
periment al pneumonia research are
hany and they seem varied, but ac-
tually there is a fundamental ques-
tion underlying them all-the ques-
tion of whether or not factors pre-
disposing to pneumonia are more im-
portant than the pneumococcus it-
self, according to Dr. W. J. Nungester
of the Medical School.
These predisposing factors include
fatigue, the common cold, exposure to
cold, and the general factor of low-
ered resistance. Dr. Nungester em-
phasized that medical science does
not know why these factors contri-
bute to pneumonia, or even what lowe
ered resistance actually is.
Serum Used Extensively
The organism itself, the pneumo-
coccus, which may be any one of some
32. different varieties, presents an-
other problem. Each form of the or-
ganism varies in the kind of chemical
substance that makes up its outer
coat or capsule. The type of or-
ganism is determined by the reaction
of specific serums with this capsular
material, or specific polysaccharide,
as it is called. The chemistry of this
material has been extensively studied,
particularly by Dr. Michael Heidel-
berger of Columbia University, who
spoke here recently.
The treatmenttnow in general use.
for pneumonia consists of injection1
with a serum which is prepared from
the blood of horses which have been
injected with dead pneumococci. This
serum is only effective when given
early in the illness and in large
amounts, and as yet serum is not
available for all 32 types of pneu-
mococci. An eastern company is now'
attempting to develop a serum that
will overcome these difficulties, us-
ing 18,000 rabbits for this purpose.
Research Here
The group working here has alsor
been investigating the problems off
why the serums do not work afterA
the third or fourth day of the dis-t
ease. They believe it is possible thatc
the serum does not get into the pneu-p
monic lung, but as yet much remains
to be done in this direction.-
Why is pneumonia a fatal disease:'?
Dr. Nungester believes that there are
probably several causes. It may be I
that there are weak toxins from the C
pneumococcus that accumulate and i
have some effect on the vital func-t
tions of the body. Another cause g
may be cyanosis, or suffocation due
to insufficient aeration of the blood, a
which is in part at least because of p
mechanical interference, but there c
are possibly other factors involved.-i

Alumni Group
Organ-ization To Promote

ScholarshIi Ftunds
Plans to launch an organization for
alumni of the Law School will be pre-
sented by Dean Henry M. Bates and
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler of the Law
{ School at a meeting of alumni April
' l, in New York City.
The organization, which will be
known as the University of Michigan
Law Society, will serve to establish#
a closer relationship between alumni
and faculty with a view to arousing
graduate interest. Through the me-.
dium of the Society, the alumni will
be able to work in close cooperation
with the a mission officials of the
Law School in influencing desirable
students to choose it for their law
It will also be the aim of the so-
ciety to enlist the help of Law School
alumni in placement of Law School
graduates, and in establishing scho-
larship funds.
Dean Bates and Proiessor Aigler,
will leave April 7 on a month's tour
to the West Coast.

The campus yesterday was treated
to a mid-week hangover thrill in the
form of a sailboat floating down the
diagonal. Thinking perhaps it had
taken several days for a previouslI
soiree to "take," your reporter looked
around for the accompanying pink
elephants and green monkeys. They
were nowhere in sight.I
But there was the boat, with full
sail, with sailors, with rigging and
with everything that goes with a
sailboat. Someone finally relieved us

Here Is The Dope
On Money It Takes
For Your Marriage
(Continued from Page 1)
the dangers threatening practically
any marriage. Financial friction, is
considered by these women to be the
chief cause of disrupted homes. Ex-
penditures ifor the wife's wardrobe,
lead the specific items believed re-
sponsible for this discord with a na-
tional average of 36 per cent. Food
and household expenses take second
place, the survey indicates, with the
costs of entertainment and liquor
falling in. third and fourth places,
Installment buying, blamed byi
many economists as the cause of the
depression, has the approval of 54
per cent of the women contacted. Of
these, 59 per cent have not felt in-
stallment buying a burden, and it has
given to 88 per cent articles which
would otherwise have been out of
their reach.
Concerning control of money is
the question: "Do you think the wife
should have a regular housekeeping
allowance?" "Yes," said 88 per cent
of all groups, while 93 per cent of the
younger women gave affirmative an-
swers. It is interesting to note that
with age, the insistence upon this
phase lessens, for only 83 per cent
of the women over 45 said "yes." It
might be further pointed out that
the survey found only 48 per cent in
possession of the allowance 88 per
cent of them desire.
