Gold Salts Aid
Disease Fioht
Freyberg And Smyth Treat
80 Arthritis Patients
Favorable results have been noted
in the use of gold salts in the treat-
ment. of arthritis, according to Prof.
R. H. Freyberg and Dr. C. J. Smyth
of the Rackham Arthritis Research
Unit of the Medical School, in the
June issue of the University Hospital
Of 80 arthritis patients who have
been observed for at least six months'
following the beginning of the gold
treatments, 61 per cent, or 49 patients,
showed complete arrest of the disease
or were improved moderately or mark-
edly from the subjective standpoint,
they pointed out, whereas 50 per cent
were apparently cured or were im-
proved as judged by objective find-
The potential toxicity therapy,
however, causes a definite objection
to general use, they stated. Further
clinical investigations and laboratory
research are being carried out at the
present time with the hope that this
therapy may become dependable and
safe, they explained.
Albion College Announces
Increase In Endowment
ALBION, June 7.-(P)-Albion Col-
lege's endowment has increased $300,-
000 since 1929 despite markoffs,
President John L. Seaton told college
alumni today at their annual com-
mencement luncheon.
J. Elliott Adams of Detroit was
chosen to head the alumni for the
coming year. Other officers named
were: vice-president, Vivian R. Jac-
obs, Akron, Ohio; Mrs. Millard Ton-
cray, Grosse Pointe, and Truman H.
Cummings, Cleveland, Ohio; record-
ing secretary, Mrs. Paul J. Hawes,
Albion; treasurer, Paul C. Ewbank,1

kind in the country, the Holabird
school is to be used by the Army as
a pattern for the establishment of
three more similar schools in the
near future.
Established during the first world
war, the camp now trains 1,200 men
and 60 officers every two months,
taking these men from Army camps
all over the country and returning
them when the training period is
Elevendsubjects are now being
taught at the training school, in-
cluding basic and advanced engines,
basic and advanced chassis, motor-
cycles, machine shop work, welding
and mechanics.
The school was organized during
World War I, when the location was
.used as a shipping point for all the
motor transport supplies being sent
overseas to the expeditionary forces.
Before becominghead of all the
'training schools during the World
War, Professor Nickelsen had charge
of training ambulance drivers and
mechanics, and was largely respon-
sible for the construction of a school
for training of this type.
The Army's reason in selecting him
to make the suggestions, Professor
Nickelsen said, was partly his past
experience in the field, and partly
the fact that he is not now directly
connected with the army, and hence
can make decisions uninfulenced by
other factors.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., June 7 -{P-
When 27-year-old Arthur W. Lehde
steps up to receive his Bachelor of
Arts degree from the University of
Illinois Monday, a white and tan bird
dog will lead him -- just as she has
during his entire college career.
Lehde, of Beacoup, Ill., is blind, but
with Peggy Lou's help he has marked
up a brilliant academic record.
He has completed a regular four-
year liberal arts and sicences course
in three and one-half years, with an
average grade of 4.5 - only half a
point below perfect. In the semester
just ended he achieved the unusual
- a straight "A" in all subjects, giv-
ing him high honors,.
Now that he has finished with
school, he and the girl he met and
married at the University plan to
return to Beacoup, where he hopes to
realize his ambition - a newspaper
feature writer.
Few stories that he may write like-
ly will equal the story of himself
and the ever-watchful Peggy Lou.
