Dr. Jimnez Discusses Causes,
Treatments For Allerv Cases
By GERALD BURNS
Last night's dill pickle may thwart
what might have been a beautiful
friendship by causing the outbreak
of an uncharming skin rash or by
prompting a running nose or an
unromantic tendency to sneeze.
This illustrates the least serious
of the cases of allergy which are
admitted to the Health Service, Dr.
Robert J. Jiminez, head of the al-
lergy department, pointed out yes-
Allergies are unfortunately not
confined to food sensitivities, Dr.
Jiminez said, but may be caused by
barometric variations or even by such
slight irritations as proximities to
Allergies Increase In Spring
Each spring brings a tremendous
increase in the number of consulta-
tions which are given students who
complain of allergies, Dr. Jiminez
said. In April alone, he stated, more
than 2,000 consultations were given
to nearly 800 students.
Treatment ordinarily begins with
a series of simple tests intended to
isolate the offensive elements with
which the patient comes into con-
tact, he explained. He mentioned
tests for allergies ranging from or-
dinary ragweed sensitivity--which
commonly results in hayfever-to
sensitivity to hair dressing in wave
Stubborn cases, he said, may re-
quire the more intensive intradermal
test i diit Ove4 : lw.rl1i of weeks.
Rarely does this latter test fail to
clarify the patient's problem, he re-
Food Charts Made
The integrated results of the tests
given in the department are trans-
lated into food charts and diets if
the patient's problem is traceable to
foods, or into plans for extensive
medical treatment if a physiologicalj
irregularity is discovered.
With summer approacning, Dr.
Jiminex warned, poison-ivy will
flourish in profusion in the vicinity
of Ann Arbor. He asked that all
who are chronic sufferers from ivy
infections visit the health service
for protective injections. Such pre-
cautionary action will save many4
weeks of skin irritation, he said.

The May issue of the Michigan
Law Review, an official publication
of the Law School, appears today.
The Review comprises the commen-
raries of recognized legal scholars
and the contributions of law students,
and is sent to lawyers in professional
practice, better enabling them to keep
informed of contemporary develop-
inents in the legal field. Law stu-
dents receive the opportunity to gain
professional experience by prepar-
ing research articles for publication
in the Review.
Of special interest to those who
have followed the development and
trends in professional curricula is
the feature article "The Proposed
Four-Year Law Curriculum: A Dis-
senting Opinion" by Prof. Philip Me-
chem of the University of Iowa. Pro-
po als to extend the prevailing three-
year curriculum to four years have
been supported in a number of uni-
The article "State Legislatures and
Unionism" by Prof. Russel A. Smith
and William J. DeLancey, '40L, will
be of particular interest to anyone
concerned with the roles of labor
unions and state legislatures in the
struggle between capital and labor.
It is a compilation and interpreta-
tion of developments in this field up
to recent time.
"Another New Tort?", a discussion
of the emergence of legal liability on
the part of automobile manufacturers
for failures in their products, is
written by Prof. Paul A. Leidy of the
Law School. Prof. Henry J. Merry
of the University of Chicago has con-
tritu ed a timely article on "Federal
Estate and Gift Tax: Concept of a
Transfer." The balance of the 're-
view comprises the work of students
of the Law School.

Since Holland's surrender, the
question of the status of her colonies
has become of concern, especially
the East and West Indies, which

The Royal Dutch Shell Oil Com-
pany has its largest refining plant
on the island of Aruba in the Dutch
West Indies, Prof. Thomas S. Lover-

asked about the importance of this
possession, and much of the oil from
Venezuela is refined there. This
company is a combination Dutch
and English firm, Professor Lover-
ing said, and is the second largest
oil company in the world, second
only to the Standard Oil Company
of New Jersey.

NEW YORK'S MOST EXCLUSIVE HOTEL
RESIDENCE FOR YOUNG WOMEN
The Barbizon is the home of college
clubs in New York. Why? Perhaps
it's because the Barbizon offers so
many more of the smart interesting
things that appeal to college girls.
Daily it presents aharmonious med-
ley of cultural and physical activi-
ties ... musicales... art lectures
...dramatics ... a fine library..

squash courts. Another reason why
college girls prefer living in The
Barbizon Manner is its location ...
in the midst of New York's most
fashionable residential section, yet
convenient to important business
centers, art galleries, museums,
theatres and schools.
by a foreign power seems less immi-
nent than that of the East Indies.
The New York Times pointed out
that Japan has already announced
that she would object to the move-
ment of any power into the tropical
colony, and the United States fleet
has been moved to the Atlantic
Ocean from its usual station in the
San Pedro area, several thousand
miles closer to Japan.
Rubber, Tin Important
The value of the East Indies lies
principally in the rubber and tin
produced there. A recent article by
Prof. Robert 13. Hall, of the geog-
raphy department, on "American
Raw-material Deficiencies and Re-
gional Dependence" demonstrates
that, except for Bolivia, the only
major tin deposits can be obtained
from the lands west of the Pacific.
A great portion of this country's
rubber imports, at least,scome from
the East also.
