Health Service
Offers Best in
Medical Care
93% of Students Use
Modern Facilities for
Curing of Disorders
Rivaled by few other college in-
firmaries in the country, the Univer-
sity of Michigan Health Service of-
fers students the best in up-to-date
service 24 hours a day.
The University Health Service, less
than two years old, is fully equipped
to render special and general services
and to promote health education and
safety. With a staff of more than 40
qualified doctors and nurses, it yearly
treats 93 per cent of the student body
for some type of disorder.
According to statistics kept by Dr.
Warren E. Forsythe, director, each
student visits the Health Service on
an, average of 10 to 12 times a year.
About 25 per cent of the students are
patients in the infirmary, while more
than 20 per cent are tested for glasses
during the school year.
Very complete medical care is
available to all students including 30
days of bed care and emergency op-
erations. This service is given by
thoroughly trained personnel, and
patients are not used as clinical sub-
jects or experiments.
Physicians are always on call for
service in student rooms and special
part-time nurses reside in the dormi-
tories. Operations without anaesthet-
ics are performed in the Health Serv-
ice free of charge, major ones in the
University Hospital also without
Most common student complaint
is that of the common cold which, ac-
cording to the doctors, is not to be
treated lightly. Appendicitis ranks
highest among the serious operations
with more than one per cent of the
students being operated on each year.
A Thanksgiving party will be held
by the Michigan Dames at 8:15 p.m.
today in the League. This party is
under the supervision of the Bridge

Censorship Regulations Af fect
New University Quiz Program

Radio censorship grows more se-
vere as the war goes on. The latest
censorship move which will affect
the radio listening of students of the
University is that imposed upon a
University originated radio show
which will make its deubt at 2:45 p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 19, over WCAR, Pon-
Entitled "Tell Me, Professor," the
program idea came from Prof. Waldo
Abbott, head of the broadcasting ser-
vice, who will direct it.
Originally the program was to have
University professors answer, by
proxy, questions submitted by the
listening audience, but. this idea had
to be abandoned because: of existing
censorship rules stating that questions
for a "quiz show" cannot be used in
the order received and must in some
cases be held as much as six weeks.
As Prof. Abbott wants to keep the
program up-to-the-minute in the
questions asked and answeredo he has
revised it and will now use only ques-

tions formulated on the campus by
the professors and students in radio
Professor Abbott has written to the
Office of Censorship including one
of the proposed scripts and hopes that
they will see fit to lift "Tell Me, Pro-
fessor" from the- category of "quiz
programs" set by the censors.

To alleviate the equipment shortage

man. Six other members of the crew of Rickenbacker's plane, forced down while on an inspection tour, were

Union Shows Soldiers' Pictures

A pictorial display of "Michigan's
Fighting Men" is now on view in the
south lounge of the Michigan Union.
The exhibit is sponsored by the
Michigan Union staff in an attempt
to focus more attention on Michigan
men who are now fighting in the
armed services.
Art Geib, '44E, and Dick Ford, '44,
co-chairmen of the exhibit, urge all
students and friends of the University
to turn in pictures and brief notes

about any Michigan man in service.
All such data may be left in the Stu-
dent Offices of the Michigan Union.
The make-up of the case is changed
each week, featuring 10-15 pictures
with brief notes.
Plans are now being formed to
place the name of every Michigan
man in service on a complete Michi-
gan Service Roster. This poster will
be on view in the new cafeteria of
the Union.

State, Rejects
Convict Labor
LANSING, Nov. 23.- (A)- Gover-
nor Van Wagoner, on the advice of
Chief Assistant Attorney General
James F. Shepherd, today refused to
order the use of convict labor from
the state prison of southern Michigan
to relieve a farm labor shortage in
the Jackson area.
Shepherd, in an informal oral opin-
ion, told the Governor a Michigan
statute specifically prohibits- the use
of prison labor for private purposes
and that only the Legislature could
change the law.
The Governor commented th'at la-
bor unions "squawked the loudest"
when they learned of the Picard labor
incident, but that some of them en-
dorsed the proposal to use convicts to
harvest corn on private farms.
