Repercussions of the agitation for
cleaner Ann Arbor restaurants are
still koing felt by city and University
health off icls' as letters stream in
from all over the nation requesting
details of methods used in combating
urnsanitary conditions.
A recent issue, of News Digest, or-,
gan of the country's health officers,'
carried a condensation of Daily ar-I
ticles calling attention to unhealthy
prantices in Ann Arbor eating places
w.ith the result that Dr. Lloyd Gates,
ofj the public health debartment has
received requests for details of thel
original survey from as far away as'
Oregon on the W ttest coast and'
Washington, D. G., on the East. Pon-.
tiac was among several cities asking
for details of the campaign.
In an attempt┬░ to see what gains
have been made, the University is at
.present conducting a survey similar
to the one on which 'the original l,
charges were based,, Dr.. Gates said.
At the same time research is being
undertaken to check the methods
used in such surveys and, to perfect
new methods of attacking sanitation
problems. Such research, according
to Dr. Gates, is among the very few5
assaults being made. upon the prob-)j
lema in .the United States.
The question, he-said, is a new one,
and one which has only recently
commanded scientific examination.
"The University is prinprily engaged
in testing; and weeding out other
methods and especially in developing 1
a. technique for measuring bacteriolo-
gical cleanliness of glasses and uteni-
sill. Without Ouch. technique attempts
to clean up ie staurantS are groping

I"The valuable assets of civilization
can never be preserved by propaganda
or force, but only by throwing open
the books of society to the critical
examinatiolia of each generation of
youth," Dr. Ruthven declared.
"instead of r~idiculing and critic i-
ing students for daring to think out-
side of particular patterns," he con-
tinued, "instead of insulting teachers
lby passage of silly loyalty oaths, and
instead of starving schools to make
life more pleasant for an older gen-
eration, it would be better if the faul.-
finders would encourage teachers and
students with expressions of hope, pa-
tience and tolerance, and would :con-
sider it a privilege rather than a bur-
den to assist the schools in A~hat is,

"The Soviets would not go to war
now for three reasons," he explained.
"They are afraid of Japan and der-
many, they can not trust their army,
and they are under the second five
year plan, and the effective working
out of that prevents an invasion by

Russia at the present."
