Baffle 'Garg'
Picture a beautiful freshman wa'k-
ing down the street, minding her own
business. Picture a car driving up
alongside. its occupants beini on a
mission of greatest seriousness and
good will.
As the car stops and a man jumps
out to accost the freshman, she takes
to her heels and races madly down
the street, pathetically crying, 'Ma-
ma! ", as the man climbs .wearily
back into the car with a perplexed
expression on his face.
This is the Gargoyle staff, merely
trying to obtain photographs of the
faircr of the new students for their
first issue of the year, with no intent
at frightening anyone.
Estimates to date have placed the
time of appearance of the October
Gargoyle at Thursday, oct. 23, when
staff members will approach students
on campus with the campus life
monthly, priced at 15 cents a copy.
Besides carefully selecting models
for the aforementioned feature from
a list of 678 names submitted, and
ultimately obtaining the pictures, the
"Garg" staff has prepared a poll upon
a question of international impor-
tanceto patrons of the old "skin
game." The question: "How do youl
peel a banana?"
These are only two of the sections
to be offered students this 'moni h.I
Besides these there will be a special
feature on the engineering school,

one school or college is featured in
each month's issue.
Orientation, the usual advice to be-
wildered freshmen and an article 'on

among the other features which will
reach the public when the first Gar-
goyle comes onto the newsstands Oct.

Raiy Weather
Brings Uual
Cold Onslaught
Changing weather conditions have
resulted in the usual onslaught of
colds this fall, Dr. Warren E. For-
sythe, director of Health Service i..,
No advice other than to use com-
mon sense in dressing to meet the
shifting climatic conditions was of
fered by Dr. Forsythe who warns
particularly against getting over-
heated or chilled.
The common belief about exercis-
ing and trying to sweat a cold out
is fallacious and may lead to compli-
cations. Swimming is especially dan-
gerous for those with colds since it
may cause chilling or allow infections
to enter the system via the nose-sinus
route or swallowing of impure water.
Best treatment consists in restrict-
ing the activities and going, to bed.
No medicines are known that will cure
a cold although some may give tem-
porary relief and make the patient
more comfortable,

(Note: This is the first in a series
of articles describing the activities of
the Washtenaw County Health De-
partment.) I
Dr. Otto K. Engleke, director of
the Washtenaw County Health De-
partment, has numerous duties in
coordinating the forces of medicine
in this county in order that its citi-
zens may derive maximum benefit
from the Department.
Vital facts pertaining to the con-
munity,such as the number of bihhs
and deaths, the amount of illness
from communicable diseases and re-
ports on specimens submitted to the
state laboratory for examination
must first be collected and analy od.
The director must then mold the
health department program to meet
the community's particular needs, by
organizing local resources, facilities
and personnel and directing tieni
toward the solution of community
health problems.
Dr. Engleke also acts as health of-
ficer for the county, with full respon-
sibility for admir lstration of the
,health laws of the state.
His duties in this field include di-
agnostic services to physicians, quar-
antine of reported cases of communi-
cable diseases, investigation of epi-
demicM, provision of a, tuberculosis,
program, provision of a venereal dis-
ease program, and promotion of an
adequate maternal health program.
Health service for infants, pre-
school and school children, including
immunization agaitst diphtheria and
smallpox," physical' examination and
dental care of children must also be
The director reports regularly to
the health committee of the board
of supervisors the activities of the
department and discusses with them
programs for future work.

Miscellaneous duties- which never-
theless are of high importance to
the maintenance of an adequate
health department include contact
with the public through the news-
papers concerning the prevalence of
communicable diseases and proposed
health projects, addresses before
meetings of cgpimunity groups on
