University Men

For Year Book
Professors Brown, Dorr,
Benson Are Contributors
To Annual Publication
Three members of the University's
political science department contrib-
uted the first articles in the 1940 edi-
tiorl of the American Year Book, re-
ceived here yesterday.
Prof. Everett S. Brown, a yearly
contributor since 1933, wrote the sur-
vey of "The President and His Poli-
cies" during the year 1939-40. Profs
Harold M. Dorr and George C. S.
Benson, both previous contributors i
to the Year Book, discussed "National
Personalities" and "The Year in Con-
gress" respectively.
'Record Of Events'
The American Year Book carries
a yearly "record of events and pro-
gress." The 1940 edition represents
its 25th year of publication. This
issue contains "a survey of 1939 in
27 major fields of interest."
Professor Brown's article deals with
seven phases of the President's for-
eign policy and five spheres in his
domestic policy. Specifically, the sur-
vey discussed foreign policy, national
defense, relations with Europe, neu-
trality, the Far-East, Latin Ameri-
ca, trade agreements, social security
and unemployment, labor, administra-
tive reorganization, the President and
the Supreme Court and party policy.
Discusses Personalities
Professor Dorr discussed 17 "Na-
tional Personalities" in his contribu-
ton: the President, Vice-President
Garner, Associate Justice Murphy,
Secretary of State Hull, Postmaster
General Farley, Secretary of Com-
merce Hopkins, Secretary of the In-
terior Ickes, Rep. Martin Dies, Paul
V. McNutt, Mayor LaGuardia of New
York City, Herbert Hoover, Alfred
M. Landon, Sen. Arthur H. Vanden-
berg, Sen. Robert A. Taft, Thomas E.
Dewey' Rep. Joseph W. Martin and
Gov. John W. Bricker of Ohio.
Professor Benson's article discusses
30 spheres of congressional activity
during the year 1939-40.

Peace Rally
Will Feature
Senator Nye
An uncompromising isolationist,
with a journalistic background andr
a fiery career of 15 years in the Unit-
ed States Senate behind him: that's
Sen. Gerald P. Nye, keynote speaker
for the all-campus Peace Rally to
be held here April 19.
Senator Nye's most recent isolation-
ist outcry was his bitter attack on a
pro-Ally speech made in Toronto by
United States minister to Canada,
James R. H. Cromwell. At the time
the Senator was quoted in the New'
York Times as saying, "Mr. Cromwell
is only echoing what his chief has
repeatedly resorted to, though being
at the head of a government reput-
edly striving for neutrality."
His firm support of isolation is
shown also by his opposition to re-'
peal of the arms embargo, and by his
advocacy of a constitutional amend-
ment granting the suffrage to youths
between the ages of 18 and 21.
In 1935 he presented to the Senate
a report entitled "To Prevent Profit-
eering in War," in which he probed
and bitterly denounced the munitions
U.P. Tour Planned
By Hiawatha Club
The second annual Spring Vaca-
tion tour of the Upper Peninsula will
be made April 8 to 12 by the Hiawatha
Club in order to acquaint northern
Michigan high school seniors with
the actiVities offered at the Universi-
ty, Donald Counihan, '41, president,
announced yesterday.
The tour, which i§ the only one of
its kind attempted on this campus,
was inaugurated by the organization
last year in order to convince pros-
pective college students that the ad-
vantages of attendance at this Uni-
versity are greater than those of col-
leges nearer to the Upper Peninsula.
A special film of the grounds and
activities of the University will be
shown at school assemblies, in addi-
tion to the appearance of Hiawatha
Club members who will accompany
the movies with talks. Phil West-
brook, '40, was appointed chairman
of the venture at the last meeting.

Blood Pressure
Treatment Hit
By T' Doctor
Although doctors in various parts
of the country have been siuccessfil
in treating high blood pressure with
potassium thiocyanate, results of;
treatments with the drug here in
the University Hospital have rarely
been favorable, according to Dr. Max
Minton Peet, Professor of Surgery,.
Rceently, Dr. Paul F. Dickens, of
George Washington University toldr
a meeting of the Post-graduate clin-i
ic there that work with this medi-
cine has brought favorable results.
The potassium thiocyanate is "used
on patients in their own homes and
not only keeps the blood pressure
down, but also keeps patients free
of symptoms for years to come."
The medicine was known to doc-
tors many years ago, but fell into
ill-favor when reactions were not
successful. Dr. Barker, of Chicago,
revived the use of the drug when
careful experimentation and re-
search brought about cures in sev-
eral patients, but similar tests made
here did not bring about results com-
parable to those achieved by Dr.
Barker. This may be due to several
things, he pointed out, such as put-
ting patients to bed, which always
brings about a drop in pressure.
"Careful analysis of the patient's
condition as well as observation of
the amount of cyanate in the pa-
tient is necessary before applying
the drug," Dr. Arthur Curtis, Asso-
ciate Professor of Internal Medicine
Glacial Studies Discussed
By Geologist Yesterday
Prof. George M. Stanley of the Ge-
ology department discussed glacial
studies in the Great Lakes and Hud-
son Lakes regions at a meeting of
the Junior Research Club yesterday

Rackham Building.

Meet ing Today: Featured in the
seminar for chemical and metallurg-
ical engineers at 4 p.m. today will be
a discussion on the subject of "A
Study of the Rate of Extraction of1
Oil from a Porous Solid." Mr. D. F.
Boucher will read a paper on the'
topic. Open to all graduate stu-
dents, the meeting will be in Room
3201 of the East Engineering Build-
With the long awaited announce-
.tent of the new dean of the en-
gineering college finally released,
comes a time for speculation and
comment on the future.
The boys in the Technic office are
more systematic about their quest
for knowledge. Back numbers of
the Kansas Engineer have become
exceedingly popular. Perhaps the[
most salient point to be gleaned from
these issues is the fact that the new
Jean, in a similar capacity at the
University of Kansas, was quick to
make friends with the students, and
became a regular contributor to the
student magazine.
