Students Get
Free Medical
Service Here
Health Service, Located
In Modern Building,
Is One Of Best In U.S.
Students at the University have at
their disposal one of the nation's
finest health centers to be devoted
solely to the care of a college
The University Health Service,
directed by Dr. Warren E. Forsythe,
was moved to a new building only
last April and represents the most
modern developments achieved by
medical science for incorporation in-
to a health center. Located on
Twelfth Street less than a block from
North University Avenue, the Health
Service is open for medical work day
and night.
Staff Is Listed
A staff of 20 doctors and 12 nurses
comprise the main part of the Health
Service's workers, aided by approxi-
iately 55 other employes including
registered pharmacists, janitors and
clerks. All the doctors and nurses are
fully qualified and have received the
best training available.
Any ailment from a case of "nerves"
to a broken arm can be treated in
the Health Service. Doctor For-
sythe believes that students should
iot hesitate to consult a doctor, no
matter how small his trouble may be.
"We can do a great deal to effect
a cure if we catch illness before it
becomes really serious," he said.
Bed Care Provided
Besides free doctor's services, stu-
dentA are allowed 30 days of bed care
in the Health Service or in the Uni-
versity hospital. Operations not re-
quiring the use of general anaesthet-
ics are performed without charge in
the Health Service, while major oper-
ations are performed in the hospital,
also without charge.
Health education for students is
carried on under Doctor Forsythe's
lirection. Hygiene lectures are given
each freshman. class, and Health
Service doctors are always ready to
serve in an advisory capacity.
for future reference!

Co-ops Offer
Students Plan
For Self Aid
Movement Begun In 1932
Now Has Housing Space '
For Approximately 200 t
The campus cooperative move-e
rnnt, expanding every year, doubt-s
less will attract many members of 1
the Class of '44 during their firsta
years in Ann Arbor.h
Eight co-op buildings, housing ap-
proximately 200 students, are open-t
ing this fall. The movement here1
has grown yearly since 1932, whenf
the Michigan Socialist House first
opened its doors.V
Membership in a cooperative houset
is obtained only after careful con-E
sideration by a committee on admis-r
sion. This committee interviews ap-r
plicants and chooses members from
these interviews on the basis of aE
long and carefully worded applica-1
tion blank. Under no circumstancesc
is membership discrimination made
because of religion, creed or color.t
Tests Are Given
After passing a severe test on tol-
erance and social views, for exam-r
ple, and having been passed by ther
house membership committee, the
applicant must then be passed on
by the entire house membership be-
fore taking his place as a cooperator.
Each house has its own elected'
officers. The house president is usu-
ally the contact man with the Uni-
versity in any matters affecting both
the University and the cooperative'
movement. He presides at house
meetings, and is expected to bring'
up from time to time discussion sub-
jects relative to cooperation.
The house manager arranges and'
supervises work schedules. At the
beginning of each semester, each co-
operator submits acschedulewof
classes to him; in accordance with
those, he arranges work schedules:
seven hours per week for those who
live in the house, and three hours
per week for those who merely board
there. Particular kinds of work as-
signments are made on the basis of
past experience, personal preference
and desirability.
Another important function of the
house manager is to arrange "work
holidays." When a job (such as var-
nishing floors, repairing furniture or
painting) must be done outside the
time allotted to the regular work
schedule, the house manager sets
aside an entire day when all the
cooperators are expected to "pitch
in and help."
The treasurer keeps account of in-
coming revenue, makes weekly cash
statements and must countersign all
outgoing checks. The secretary keeps
permanent records of the house, its
rules and regulations, and minutes
at meetings.
Steward In Charge
The steward has complete control
of the kitchen. He plans the 21 meals
per week, and often makes recipes.
Along with the purchasing agent,
he takes periodic stock of the food
The purchasing agent signs all
outgoing checks. Most of his time
is spent in seeling advantageous
purchasing arrangements and in
checking price lists. The accountant
also must countersign checks. Keep-
ing account of house books and fi-
nancial standing takes up all of his
The Girls' Cooperative House is
run slightly different from the other
houses. An executive board (presi-
dent, vice-president, secretary and
treasurer) and an administrative
board (meal planner, purchaser,
housekeeper and accountant) each

work in their own separate spheres.
Selection of members in the Mich-
igan Socialist House is based pri-
marily on need. Foreign students
especially are urged to join this

Loan Funds
Aid Students
Scholarships, fellowships and loan
funds of many types and amounts
are made available to students

Gift Honors
Late Regent


Science Chair
Is Established

An endowment fund of $200,000,
the income of which is to be used
to maintain the James Orfin Mur-
fin Professorship of Political Sci-
ence, has been received by the Uni-
versity from John W. Anderson, De-
troit attorney and a graduate of the
Law School in 1890.
The new gift was announced at
an alumni gathering in June, and
this will be the first year it has been
available for the fellowship. The
fellowship is intended by Mr. Ander-
son to be "a recognition of a life-long
friendship with a man who, as an
official and an alumnus, with un-
restrained generosity has given of his
time and his substance for the bene-
fit of the University."
James Orfin Murfin, in whose
honor the new chair in political
science has been established, was
graduated from the University's liter-
ary college in 1895 and from the law
school in 1896.
