By ALBERT BLAUSTEIN
Many of our old traditions con-
cerning medical science need "de-
bunking" based on scientific facts, Dr.
Warren E. Forsythe, of the Health
Service, said in an interview yester-
For example, he said, many believe
that athletes develop bad heart con-
ditions from their exercise and this,
of course, is entirely unfounded.
It is also believed that pregnant
women will impart many characteris-
tics to their children by looking at
pictures and listening to music, etc.
Medical science definitely denies this.
For many years, Dr. Forsythe stat-
ed, people have been taking "deep
breathing exercises" in order to aid
their health while dizziness or actual
fainting may be the result.
Eating between meals is another
common thing which people think is
harmful when there is no reason for
this belief. Another idea, he added,
that marriage of close relatives will
result in diseased conditions of their
children, is no more true than in mar-
riages of non-relatives.
The more or less common belief
that salt peter, or sodium nitrate, is
given to soldiers and other groups as
a means of controlling sex desires, he
remarked, is without justification. It
is never given by responsible and in-
formed persons and has no such

Assured Of Jobs
Thirty-six per cent of the men to
be graduated in the largest mechani-
cal engineering class in the Univer-
sity's history have been already placed
The class, which numbers 175, is
far larger than last year's, which set
the all-time record by graduating
118 engineers. The mechanical en-
gineering department, which spends
much time and effort in placing its
graduates, has this year found po-
sitions for 63 -ien, and is optimistic of
placing half the remainder within
the next few weeks.
According to Miss Louise E. Coon,
secretary, one of the biggest draw-
backs to more successful placement
is the lack of aggressiveness on the
part of the students themselves in
following up openings brought to
their attention by the department.
