Students Will Meet .Today
In International Center
To Found Organization
Arab students of the University will
gather at 5 p.m. today in the Inter-
national Center to organize the first
Arabic Culture Society ever to exist
on campus, Ismail Khalidi, Grad., ex-
vhange student from the American
University in Beirut, Lebanon, an-
nounced yesterday.
Following the example of other na-
tional and racial groups, the Arab
students intend to establish an organ-
ization in which all students and
faculty members interested in the
study of Arabic culture and language
are invited to join. Khalidi empha-
ized the fact that not only Arabs
are eligible to join. 'Thr will be no
politicalor economi issues discussed
at the group's meetings, he com-
mented.
The new society, the name of which
in Arabic is Al-Thaqfa, will pursue
its study of Arabic culture through
debates, lectures, discussions and pub-
lications, Khalidi said.
There are at present on campus
about 25 Arabs, coming from Syria,
Lebanon, Palestine and Iraq. The
interest in Arabic culturerhere has
been increased by the University's
establishment of exchange scholar-
ships with the American University.-

diseases, Dr. Bloomfield remarked,
because we have so little in the way
of statistics because of the difficulty
in obtaining them.
With the problem of protecting the
health of the worker at stake. Dr.
Clarence D. Selby, medical consultant
for General Motors, explained the
importance of the practicing physi-
cian in the industrial health prob-
lem. He urged closer cooperation be-
tween the practicing physician and
industrial health : authorities as a
whole.
Dr. Kenneth E. Markuson, director
of the Bureau of Industrial Hygiene
of the state health department, made'
several suggestions for improvement
in the field of industrial hygiene.
Small industries have not progressed
as far as large industries in preven-
tion, he said. Large industries have
seen the, advantages accruing- from
savings in workmentime and the re-
duction in occupational diseases be-
caus eof preventive measures.
After luncheon, the Conference re-
convened under the direction of Dr.
Selby, Dr. Bloomfield spoke again,
beginning his series on "Studies in
Industrial . Hygiene." He discussed;
the background for such a discus-
sion and then explained the result of
research in dust as applied to the in-
halation of minute metallic or min-
eral particles as well as pneumonia
in industry.
"More than 60 per cent of occu-
pational diseases are due to derma-
toses,". Dr. George Van Rhee of the
state medical society's Committee of
Occupational Diseases and Industrial
Hygiene, pointed out. These skin
ailments, Dr. Rhee explained, are
found mostly in young people 18 to
25 years old.
The evening lecture, given after a
dinner meeting in the Union, was
presented by Dr. C. O. Sappington,

consulting hygienist.'

After showing

statistics on occupationa: diseases in
New York and Wisconsin, he conclud-
ed that occupational diseases are not
a very great problem "as' a whole, but
to the individual who has to pay the
compensation, they are.
