As Experiment Staff Urges That Students

More than 5,000 experimental
hrubs and plants, on trial to seeI
vhether they will stay in the United
States, are the object of work now
it the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard
jniversity, Dr. Donald Wyman, hor-
iculturalist of that arborteum, ex-
plained yesterday.
The object of the experiments is
o find new plants that can be intro-
luced into the United States for use:
n landscape and botanical work. The
rboretum, which is located south of
3oston, sends expeditions to collect
oreign specimens that are thought
, be of importance.' Other plants
ire shipped to the arboretum by
?eople who are interested in the work.
The plants are always collected
rom the northernmost part of the
egion where they grow, Dr. Wyman
aid, in order to get the hardiest j
pecimens possible. They are tested
n the arboretum for five years and
f they show themselves to be hardy
nough for the northern climate,
lans are made for putting them into
ommercial use.
Most of the plants in experimenta-
ion at the arboretum are woody
>lants that can be used in landscape
lesigning, Dr. Wyman said.

ferred to as a "cold," which cases
are rapidly increasing as is usual
in the month of October, according to
Dr. Maurice R. McGarvey of the
Health Service staff.
"The Health Service staff urges all
students to come in at once, no mat-
ter how slight the symptoms are," he
said. "for if proper care is taken the
more serious complications resulting
from a cold may be avoided."
Inclement weather, such as we
have had these past few days, is con-
ducive to infection of the respiratory
tracts, Dr. McGarvey pointed out.
There is a very simple precaution
that we may take, he said, which will
go a long way toward preventing a
serious infection.
d ''Take care of yourself and the
cold will take care of itself." That
is, Dr. McGarvey pointed out, if, when
you have a cold, you will make every
effort to conserve your bodily energy
to fight the poison by getting as much
rest as possible, you will have little
difficulty with this prevalent disease.
Stay away from crowds as much
as possible, so that you do not get fur-
ther infections and do not subject£
others to the danger of getting yours,
he stated, and if possible stay in your
room, or at least in an atmosphere1
with the same temperature, for 24
hours. In this way you will prevent
serious complications from the ex-
tension of the germs to the bronchial
tubes and perhaps even the lungs,
either of which may result in pneu-
