ing into a petition for the removal
of Dr. R. J. Harrington, Muskegon
County Health Officer, was recessed
here today following the completion
of all testimony except that of the
defendant, who will take the stand
Wednesday at 9 a.m.
Witnesses for the State Health
Department, which has demanded
Dr. Harrington's removal, presented
a mass of testimony in an attempt
to show that he was not efficient.
The defense contended, however,
that his 'hands were tied" by a dis-
pute between the Muskegon County
Board of Supervisors and the Coun-
ty Medical Society over the question
of immunization of children.
Dr. Carleton Dean, Deputy Health
Commissioner, testified that tlje
Muskegon County immunization rec-
ord was second lowest in the state.
In the past nine months the Band1

Jerome Wiesner, Grad., chief engin-
eer and assistant to the Director of
Broadcasting, will leave the Univer-
sity this Saturday to assume the
duties of chief engineer for the new
recording and broadcasting division
created by the U.S. Library of Con-I
gress. The purpose of this radio
project being started in Washington
will be making recordings of Ameri-
cana-folksongs, plays, and the like
-available to all who desire them for
study or entertainment.
But unless the Acacia men are
moved by a sudden surge of kindli-
ness into giving up Fag, their St.
Bernard fraternity mascot, a sad sit-
uation will be in store with Wiesner's
leavetaking. For Fag and Jerry are
chums inseparable. Even when the
chief engineer would be summoned
off for a weekend, the dog appeared
in depths of despair unrelievable.
So certainly Acacia should see fit to
keep bound to the bond between their
mascot and departing member.
Finnish Relief Concert recordings
may still be called for, or ordered.
