Tibetan "baners" or temple-pic-
ures are usually found in the temples1

monasteries. The paintings rep-.
sent the numerous deities of La-
Laism and are regarded as very sac-

cs, and, more rarely, on Chinese

Washtenaw
Opens Drive
Couty Campaign Against
Tuberculosis Starts Today I
Washtenaw County's 1939 drive for
funds to fight tuberculosis will get
under way today with the issuing by
the county tuberculosis association
of 1,500,000 stamp-size Christmas
seals, it was announced yesterday by
Miss Kathryn Tuomy, chairman of
the drive.
Miss Tuomy stressed the fact that
proceeds from the sale of seals help
to provide care for Washtenaw tu-
berculosis patients in hospitals, and
at the same time, make possible
an extensive campaign of health
education emphpsizing early diag-
nosis and precautions against the
disease.
The seal design this year pictures
a mid-Victorian mother and her two
children lighting a candle.

Sure Diagnosis
For Ricgworm
ns Dsere

II

Old McGuffey Readers
Pass Into The Limbo

Ringworm and other fungus infec-
tions of the skin may be diagnosedk
much more rapidly and accurately
than ever before by a new cultural
method developed by two Universityt
dermatologists.t
The "hanging drop" method de-
scribed by Dr. Franz L. Blumenthal
and Dr. James S. Snow, both of the
medical school, has been shown to
be the most. useful laboratory aid in
the diagnosis of tinea, or fungus, in-
fections of the skin, not only oe-
cause it is dependable but also be-
cause it is simple, inexpensive aid
requires a very short time to be con-
pleted.
.The "hanging drop" method con-
sists of the suspension, of a small
quantity of a cultural medium which4
contains a sample of the infe°^ ed
tissue from a glass slide. This prep-
aration is incubated at room tem-
perature and examined twice a day
for the growth of fungus.
In 48 cases studied by Dr. Blumen-
thal and Dr. Snow, the "hanging
drop" method showed a positive
growth in 72 per cent of the cases
in an average time of less than two
days. Microscopic examination of
infected tissue was able to make a
correct diagnosis in only 33 per cent:
of the same group of cases. CultureI
of Sabouraud's agar medium, pre-!
viously the most accurate diagnostic
method, was correct in only 64 per
cent ofthe cases in an average irae
of over six days. --
