Doctor Advises
Adequate RTest
In Ixai Week
Nelson Smith States Lack
Of Sleep Causes Fatigue,
Impairs Good Health.
"Don't neglect your health by study-.
ing too hard and too long during
this week and next; it isn't worth it."
Dr Nelson Smith, student medical
adviser at the Health Service, voiced
this warning in an interview yester-
day. "It has been definitely proved,"
he continued, "that too much work
and not enough sleep will result in
fatigue. This goes hand in hand
with inefficiency and you will find
yourself spending an hour trying to
get a half hour's work done."
Students were also advised to divide
their study periods with fifteen min-
ute periods of relaxation. For ex-
ample, when six hours have been set
aside for study, work should be done
in two hour periods with these re-'
laxation intervals in between.
Another thing which must be
watched is eating regularly, Dr. Smith
declared. Although it is true that
one has less activity these days and
needs less food, he should neverthe-
less, eat his "three squares." Break-
fast, especially, he said, should not
be neglected as lunch and dinner us-
ually come within five or six hours
of each other, and a missed break-
fast means about 18 hours without
After meals, one should relax be-
tween a half and three-quarters of an
hour, he continued. Studies are not
the only important things in a col-
lege education, he said, and this rest
period can well be spent in reading the
newspapers, playing a friendly game
or just chatting.
"Failure to take care of yourselves
during this period is especially in-
advisable because of the weather,"
Dr. Smith pointed out, "as colds and
other respiratory diseases are preva-
lent now, and because of exams it
is very difficult to keep a student in
the Health Service."
Dr. Smith warned students against.
taking coffee, tea or "keep awake"
tablets in order to spend more time
studying, as these contain stimulants
which can be harmful when taken
in large quantities.

Survey Shows Students Favor
Debt Payment Loan To Finland


Of University

(Special To The Daily)
AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 23.-A1-
though college students have often
shown an emphatic desire to keep
the United States neutral, a nation-
wide poll completed last week reveals
that sympathy for Finland is greatl
enough for a majority of them to
approve American loans to the only
nationthat has kept up its war debt
Specifically, 62 per cent of the col-
legians answered "yes" to the ques-
tion, "Should Congress allow Fin-
land to draw on her latestWorld War
payment to the United States?" This
study of sentiment in the American
college world is one of the weekly
polls conducted for The Daily. and
other undergraduate newspapers that
form the Student Opinion Surveys
of America. A carefully-derived
sample of students is used by the in-
terviewers in measuring opinions of
the nearly one and a half million U.S.
Favorable sentiment was found in
all parts of the country onthis pro-
posal that President Roosevelt made
recently, and controversy over the
type of aid this country should give
Finland hasalready flared in Con-
gress. New England students are the
most in favor, more than seven out
of every ten approving, while those in
the Far West are the least in favor.,
An interesting fact brought out by
the Surveys in this and many other
polls on international questions has
been that people in colleges on the
eastern coast are usually more inter-
ested in the part the U.S. should play
in the solution of Europe's troubles.
