Sternberg Medal
Given To Student
Dr. Peyton Rous, member of the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Re-
search and former member of the fac-
ulty, was giver an honorary degree
of Doctor of Science at the 89th an-
nual convocation and opening exer-
cises of the Medical School this morn-
ing in the Graduate School auditor-
He was cited for his "long series
qf brilliant researches which have
made his name familiarily known in
all the leading medical centers of the
.By his studies of the blood and
tissues; and more especially by his
investigation of the effects of viruses
in producing cancer, he has added
distinction to the organization with
which he has so long been associated,"
the citation continued. "In seeking
the case of diseases he has contribut-
1d effectively to their cure."

Dr. William Kauiman, '38M, re-
ceived the Stenberg Medal for "dili-
gent efforts, original thinking and a
flue spirit of resear ." Dr. Kauf-
man Is now doing his interne work
at Barnes hospital in St. Louis.
Dr. Rous ae the principal address
before the convocation attended by
medical students, faculty and alumni
who yesterday brought to a close their
first annual reunion here.
Dr. Rous declared that disease is
no longer recognized by the medical
'professionas a disorder of tature but
rather as an order. It is however true.
he said, that medical science today
can aid materially the efforts of na-
ture in counteracting the effects of
disease. Through the medium of
scientifically concocted body serums it
can assist nature in the rebuilding of
diseased body tissues.
Duties Of Doctors Given
There at'e three duties which a doc-
tor must fulfill, Dr. Rous said. These
are: observation, interpretation of
what he has observed and the cor-
rection of the condition observed.
That these duties cannot always be
perfectly carried tut, he said, is due
to development of theoretically cor-
rect medical interpretations of disease
which do not apply practically. Dr.
Rous pointed out that the doctors of
the preceding century labored under
burdens of many misconceived ideas
of medical practice. Some of those
which he cited were: that cod-liver oil
had no material benefit but was used
merely because of superstition; that
there was no intrinsic value in sun-
light; and that food contained only
protein fats and carbohydrates.
In order that medical science may
progress, Dr. Rouss said, it is neces-
sary that it have a firm factual basis.
This basis can only be achieved
through expert and intelligent experi-
mentation, and the need in medical
science today is that this frontal at-
tack upon the unknown be continued.
President Ruthven presided at the
convocation at which Dean 1 ursten-
berg of the Medical School briefly ad-
dressed the audience on what consti-
tutes a thorough medical training.

British Minister Quits;
Italy Asks For Solution
Of Spanish Problem
Russia Suspicious
(By Associated Press)
Woodrow Wilson, advocator of
a peace-time League of Nations to
amicably settle the differences of
peoples, might have turned over
in his grave tonight if he could
see the dilemma which Europe to-
day faces-a league of four pow-
ers, two dictatorships and two
democracies, which must meet in
order to decide just how to parcel
out the land of third-party coun-
tries in order to postpone a little
longer the have-nots from liqui-
dating the haves.
Prospects of a future four-pow-
er rule of Europe, long resisted
by France, today stare her in the
face as a result of the Munich ac-
cord. The four-power plan, origi-
nally put forth by Premier Mus-
solini of Italy, excludes Russia
and makes France dependent'up-
on 'British support to offset the
Rome-Berlin axis. Also, the other
smaller countries of Europe, such
as Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Yu-
goslovia, Lithuania and the other
Balkan states are to be excluded.
This league seemed to be a grim
mockery of the Wilsonian League
of Nations which was conceived
as an equalizing device.
As Europe tried to gather in the
above facts, other things hap-
pened yesterday to further rock
the continent which has been
hanging on for dear life. Great
Britain's outspoken First Lord of
the Admiralty resigned suddenly
in "distrust" of Prime Minister
Chamberlain's new foreign policy.
Moscow brought up the question
of how long it will be before Po-
land falls before German annexa-
tion. And Italy became more firm
in her demand that the four pow-
ers get together again to settle the
almost - forgotten, cancerous
Spanish question.
Frenchmen Face'
Four-Power Realities
PARIS, Oct. 1-(P)-France today
faced the following factors in the
four-power plan:
Britain in four-power dealings
would hold the deciding vote agaiist
France if she cared to make use of
it. And against Rome and Berlin
she could do nothing more than tie
the votes.
In other words, while Rome and:
Berlin would be protected, France
would be entirely at the mercy of
Chamberlain's promise to settle dif-
ferences with Germany by consulta-I
tions, coupled with Mussolini's lean-I
ings to such consultations when limit-
ed to four, leaves France the choice
of swallowing the bitter pill and ac-
cepting the four-power arrangement.
or of remaining a weak outsider.
Although the French people gave
spontaneous favorable response to the

Czechoslovakia, with military ardor
dampened by a backwash of excuses
and refusals toaid from her supposed,
"champions of democracy" in France,
England and Russia, today prepared
to lop off frontier zones on the north,,
the south and the west as gloom and
depression seeped over Prague. In
Berlin, Reichsfuehrer Hitler acted the
part of a returning conqueror.
GerMan troops marched into Sude-
tenland, 30,000 strong, as evacuating
Czech soldiery and citizenry took one
last look around the territory that had
once been theirs, granted to them by
the Allies in order to provide a wedge
into Germany at the close of the
World War. And as these people gave
up their homes in Sudetenland, they
heard that their government, once
nurtured asta symbol of democracy,
but now cast to the hungry wolves of
have-nots as a sop 'for temporary
peace, hadadecided also to yield to
Poland's ultimatum for immediate
cession of part of the northern border
zone, rich in coal and minerals and
home of a Polish minority of 100,000.
Yet, disillusioned as the Czecho-
slovakians were at the sad turn of
events for their homeland, the under-
current of feeling still made itself
known here and there. It was not wise
to speak in a foreign language on
the streets of Prague, so strong was
the feeling of Czechoslovaks that they

Capt. Janke In Hospital
With Strained Ligament
To what extent, Fred Janke, the
leader of Michigan's 1938 football
forces, is injured is still uncertain
according to latest reports received
by the Daily.
However, doctors in charge of the
case are of the opinion that the
injury is not serious and that
Janke will see further action this
year. X-rays have been taken and
more information will be 'available
after they have been studied, pre-
liminary diagnosis having pointed
to a strained ligament.
His leg was hurt when two line-
men fell upon it from the rear,
their combined weights causing the
leg to be twisted.
Janke, at present, is resting in
the University Hospital.
