One of the better known of the
University broadcasts this year has
been the 9 a.m. Saturday "Youth in
the News" program.
News items furnish material for
these half-hour dramatizations in
which outstanding young Americans
in the fields of government, educa-
tion, defense, history and science are
the principal characters. The sketch-
es, written by University and exten-
sion course students, have been direc-
ted by Don Hargis, guest director at
Morris Hall.
Though Director David Owen's
show, "Of Legal History," heard each
Tuesday at 3 p.m. over WJR will
have to make way for a new defense
series during the second semester,
it will be remembered as a highly
successful program, for this is the
second year that a series of this type
was used.
Ellie Terretta, Grad., creator of last
year's legal series, also authored this
semester's show. The scripts, writ-
ten in conjunction with the Michigan
State Bar Association, revealed the
private lives of men famous in Eng-
lish and American law courts, among
them the stories of Henry II, Henry of
Bracton, Edward Coke, John Mar-
shall and Daniel Webster. The State
Bar has a permanent library of "Log-
ical History" recordings.
Members of Prof. Waldo Abbot's
radio script writing class (speech
187) have produced all of the plays
for the "Heroes of Medicine" series,
on the air each Thursday at 3 p.m.
over WJR. Mr. David Owen, origin-

ator of the "Jack Armstrong" and
"Skippy" programs, has directed this
series, which will be continued next
semester, while Ray Gerson, '43, by
virtue of his "mature voice" has done
all the narrating.

London street was made after one of last year's heavy night air raids,
but the picture was just released for publication. It was sent by radio

Your Dime Contribution Means
Victory Over Infantile Paralysis

for only a39c

"We believe that victory over in-
fantile paralysis, most dreaded
scourge of childhood; is possible,"
claimed Dr. Max Minor Peet, profes-
sor of surgery and Chairman of the
Committee on Education of the Na-
tional Foundation for Infantile Par-
"Our hopes are not based on senti-
ment-the pull on our heart strings
when we see a crippled child, but
are built on hard scientific facts-
new facts, new discoveries of the sci-
entist whose work you have made
possible through your support of the
National Foundation for Infantile
"Do not be disappointed when I
state that no* cure, no no even a clue
pointing in the direction of a cure,
for paralysis has been developed.
Such a possibility is, of course, always
before us. Hundreds of experiments
have already been made and thous-
ands more will be undertaken in the
hopes that some chemical combina-
tion will be found which will render
harmless the virus of poliomyelitis
once it has entered the body."
The results obtained in the treat-
ment of the pneumonias, of strepto-
coccus, staphycoccus, and gonococcus
infections with the use of sulfa dugs
suggests that these and related com-
pounds might be used in the preven-
tion or possible cure of virus diseases.
So far over 100 compounds have been
used, but with negative results. How-
ever, there are still more, than 1000
yet to be tried.
"A great advance was made," said
Dr. Peet, "when a certain strain of
the virus isolated from a child dying
at Lansing produced infantile paral-
ysis, not/alone in monkeys (whose ex-
pense made extensive experimental
work prohibitive), but in cotoon rats
and in white mice. Now thousands
of experiments with hundreds of
complex chemical compounds cquld
be made."
Formerly, it was thought that the
disease could only enter through the
nose, but recent experiments have
shown that the virus can enter the
central nervous system by way of the

alimentary tract. This summer
brought definite proof that the virus
may be carried by the common house
fly. Flies collected in a number of
communities were found to carry the
disease. The virus has now been
found in the stools of patients suf-
fering from the disease, and also of
apparently normal children and
adults and in sewage.
"Thus the possibility of combating
poliomyelitis by public health mea-
sures, as has beendone for typhoid,
seems reasonable," Dr. Peet con-
Future English
Written specifically for future
English teachers and incorporating
the most highly recommended study
methods and material arrangement,
the new textbook of Prof. Albert H.
Marckwardt of the English depart-
ment, has recently been published
and adopted for use on this campus.
The text, entitled, "Introduction
to the English Language," is for stu-
dents in the third and fourth years,
of college and is written in such a
style as to be readily adaptable to
whatever amount of time allowed for
its study.
Professor Marckwardt says that
the book is not intended as an orig-
inal contribution to present linguis-
tic knowledge. "It is designed, rather,
to present on a college classroom level
a synthesis of the most important re-
sults of linguistic investigation and
grammatical speculation," says the
The material in the text is ar-
ranged in an unusual manner but
with a definite purpose in view. In-
stead of starting with ancient Eng-
lish and proceeding to modern, Pro-
fessor Marckwardt reverses the order
and presents the study of modern
grammar first.
