Child Afflicted With Sleeping Sickness,Sleeps For 59 Days'

Though her eyes were open when this picture was taken, 2-year-old Mary Ellen Reardon did not see
her doll 'or her mother, for she was asleep and had been for 59 days. Her long sleep has been diagnosed
as sleeping sickness which she contracted during an attack of measles. Her mother, shown here with her at
their Chicago home, says the child appears to recognize no one nor hear anything. Some improvement in
her condition has been noticed recently.

Iraq Diggigs
Of University
Lack of funds has stopped the dig-
gings -at Seleucia for this year and
perhaps next, Prof. Clark Hopkins,
Latin professort said yesterday. How-
ever they will be continued as soon as
the needed money is raised.
The concession to the'sight of Se-
leucia which is located in Iraq not
far south of Bagdad was first given
to the University of Michigan in 1928
when the excavation, under the di-
rection of Prof. Leroy Waterman of
the oriental languages, department
was done in the hope of finding the
ancient city of Opis.
Although Professor Hopkins does
not share the belief, it is thought by
some archeologists that the remains
of Opis are buried beneath part of
The greatest value in Seleucia lies
in its four clearly separated levels,
which make it possible to trace the
development in our knowledge of eas-
tern history.
Another interest in Seleucia is the
fact that the fusion which swept over
the western world and the ideas of art
of the Western Greeks and the eastern
Parthions with Christianity in the
Byzantine period is reflected in this
Eastern capital. There are traces of
this fusion in other spots but the
clear levels here make it easier to
trace its development.

Year-Old Petal
Develops Root,
La Rue Sh ows
Roots sprouted from petals which
had been kept alive for more thai a
year by Prof. Carl D. LaRue of the
botany department, After two years'
of concentration on the developments'
of flowers and immature embroys in
culture, Professor LaRue lately has
published his findings on the sub-
"We have known about the de-
velopment of roots, stems, and leaves,
for some time," said Professor LaRue,
"now we are finding out what flow-
ers will do in culture."
Cuttings of stems will generally
grow; root cuttings will grow in most
cases, and some leaves will grow
roots. A few of these leaves will even
form shoots and develop.
Professor LaRue showed a tray of
culture tubes from his lab and ex-
plained that in each of the tubes had
been placed agar-agar mixed with a
nutrient solution of sugar and min-
eral salts. The cuttings for the ex-
periment had been rid of' bacteria
and placed in the tubes, he said, where
their development was watched. After
some months, roots were seen on the
flowers of 26 species. Two of these
species not only formed buds but
grew on up into plants.
Asked if it would ever be possible
for cut flowers to berkeptdover long
periods of time, he repied, "It may
be possible, but the chance of using
it for commercial purposes is very
slim. The great difficulty would be
in sterilizing the plants before they
were put in culture."

combined to elect one representative,

James Rae. '40, swept into the posi-
tion on the Board in Control of Ath-
letics by 426 votes to 109 of Charles
Pink, '40.
Accompanying the election were the
uglier features of politics. Several
candidates are threatening to protest
the election, and charges have been
made that fraternities stuffed the
ballot boxes with the blanks that were
used when the regular printed bal-
lots 'gave out early in the voting
period. Charges of electioneering at
the polls and double-voting have also
been made. This friction has been
described as -one naturally accom-
panying th tremendous interest
the election aroused this year.
Last year Hugh Rader, '38, polled
j the highest number of votes for Men's
Council, with 118, . as compared
to the 713 votes received by George
Quick this year for the Board in Con-
trol of Publications. As usual voting
was heaviest in the literary school,
which polled 756 of the total number

Pacifist Sees U.S. Safe From War
But Needs Peace For Prosperity

Will Have Depressions As
Long As Other Nations
Fight, Oniderdonk Says
The United States will not get into
war whether we follow an isolationist
or a collective security policy, Dr.
Francis S. Onderdonk, noted humani-
tarian and pacifist said in an inter-
view with The Daily yesterday. We
will continue to have depressions here,
he said, as long as war goes on in
other parts of the world.
International law has been flaunt-
ed, he explained, and beca,4sel-of that
the conditions of unrest have led our
militarists to demand more arma-
ments; and this leads to more taxes,
starting a vicious cycle. The only so-
lution, Dr. Onderdonk said, is col-
lective security.
"Besides," he added, "any person
of Christian ideals, or humanitarian
ideals, must be concerned with the
slaughter now going on in Europe
and Asia." y

To carry on further peace agita-
tion, Dr. Onderdonk is planning a
trailer somewhat 'milar to the "Ca-
thedral Trailer" Bishop Hopson.
He plans to have outfitted with a
library of propaganda for peace, and
a complete film library, to be made
up of six programs similar to the one
he showed at the University last week.
"I believe I could, if sufficient funds
were forthcoming, arouse sufficient
interest with a fleet of such trailers
to change the foreign policy of the
U.S.," the passionate pacifist said.
He described the tremendous ignor-
ance of the "man in the street" re-
garding world affairs, and sad edu-
cating the people is th' most impor-
tant part of his job. "The idea of get-
ting America into the League of Na-
tions is only a question of propa-
ganda," he stated.
