Twenty-six pneumonia cases were
officially reported. This figure is in

occurring in the same period lastj
year. In 1939 the figure was closer
but still only'half of this year's count
with 13 patients treated,
No apparent explanation could be
sound for the increase since the num-

President Roosevelt's emergency fact-

unions flatly rejected that proposal
and called the strike, which had been

careful treatment of colds by ade-

serious developments from the colds,
He advised students with bad colds
to report to Health Service.
A rather puzzling increase in the
number of cases of infectious mono-
nucleosis, a 'mysterious glandular fe-
ver, has appeared in the las$t few
years. There were 20 cases detected
during the September-October peri-
od this year as compared to 13 last
year and 6 the year before.
Figures from former annual rec-
ords reveal an upward trend with 56.
79 and 110 cases for 1938,'1939 and
1940 Dr. Forsythe said the rise may
be ascribed possibly to the ability of
doctors to recognize the illness bet-
ter. The symptoms are general fever
with enlarged lymph glands.
Pispensary calls for the period ran
up to 20,074 comparing evenly with
the 20,031 calls of last year. About
100 more bed patients were treated
than in 1939 and 1940 witfi 362 cared
for this year as against 261 and 266
Student deaths are well ahead of
the usual four or five per year with
threefatalities already reported. Two
accidental deaths occurred during the
Summer Session and more recently
a student succumbed to a heart at-
tack. None of the victims was treated
by Health Service.
