Student Group
Aids Paralysis
Fund Drive
Every year many fatalities are re-
corded due to infantile paralysis, and
many more cases are treated in which
the victim, though recovering, suf-
fers permanent afflictions.
With this in mind thousands of doc-
tors and research experts are search-
ing for the cause and cure of the di-
sease. Hospitals everywhere are being
supplied with iron lungs and splints
which can bring some hope to the
sufferers of the dread disease.
Only if the American public con-
tributes generously to the funds of
the National Foundation for Infan-
tile Paralysis, which is now conduct-
ing its yearly drive, can these ac-
tivities be carried on, leaders of the
drive assert.
As a part of the national campaign
a drive is being conducted on the
campus by a student group headed
by Hervie Haufler, '41, and Bill
Combs, '41. The campus group is co-
operating with the Ann Arbor com-
mittee, which has a $2,000 goal. Mrs.
A., M. Waldron and Mrs. Fielding
Yost are co-chairmen of the Ann Ar-
bor committee.
Contributions to the campus fund
may be sent to Hervie Haufler, Stu-
dent Publications Building.
Of the funds collected. one-half
will remain in the community, and
the remainder will go to the National
The National Foundation uses the
funds not only to combat the disease
through the purchase of such equip-
ment as iron lungs, but also to spon-
sor laboratory work aimed at determ-
ining the cause and the cure of in-
fantile paralysis.'
Experts declare that it is virtually
impossible to make any discoveries
regarding the disease unless the pub-
lic provides the necessary funds.

To Speed Up)
Speeding up analysis of metallic
alloys to a new high, the spectroscope
is gaining wider use in foundries
and steel mills throughout the na-
tion. In the past, spectroscopic anal-
ysis of alloy steel has not been ac-
curate enough for industrial work, but
the apparatus developed by Dr. Har-
vard B. Vincent and Dr. Ralph A.
Sawyer of the University physics de-
partment has yielded exceptionally
high reproducibility of results.
Spectroscopic analysis depends on
the fact that heated metal radiates
light. The apparatus splits the light
into various wave lengths, and no

Drops Big Ten Match;
Score Is 1,892-1,847
The University Rifle Team fell in
step with the basketball team yester-
day when it was announced that the
marksmen had lost their second Big
Ten contest to the University of In-
diana, 182 to 147.
Helping no little bit in the Indiana
victory was an Indiana high score
of 383 out of a possible 400, which
is one of the best scores turned in
this year. Verne C. Kennedy, Jr.,

Far from being a complete loss,
hcwever, last week's score was more
than sufficient to give the Michi-
gan squad wins over Coe College,
Gettysburg College and Texas Tech,
the last by default.
In their first Big Ten match shot
two weeks ago, the team lost to the
University of Illinois. Officially cor-
rected targets gave the Illini a mar-
gin of only three points, however.
Shooting high scores for the Michi-
gan squad were Richard O. Jones,

A. Stumpf, '41E, David H. Weisburg,
'44E, and Albert D. Engstrom, '44.
