Annual WSSF
Drive To Be
Held for Week
Campaign Will Open
lomorrow To Collect
FI dls for Student Aid
The World Student Service Fund,
which operates primarily in colleges
and universities of the United States
to raise money for student war relief,
will open its annual weekly drive to-
morrow.
. Supported primarily by students,
faculty, and educational organiza-
tions, this fund helps students and
professors of thirteen nations, in-
cluding China, Russia, Australia, un-
occupied France, Spain, Greece'and
India.
"This year we hope to raise $2,000
from the University campus," Bar-
bara Smith, '44, chairman of the
drive, said yesterday. The national
goal has been tripled to $300,000.1
In former years student relief has
been divided between food grants,
work relief, necessities grants, travel
aid, winter clothing and scholarships.
The work in Europe is carried on
almost entirely in prison, refugee,
and internment camps. All money
collected in the United States is
cabled to Geneva, Switzerland, where
it is distributed by the European Stu-
dent Relief Fund.
The campus drive will be carried
on especially among church groups,
dormitories, cooperatives, sororities.,
and at the League and Union.
The WSSF is sponsored by the
United States Committee of the
International Student Service and
the United States section of the
World's Student Christian Federa-
tion.
A.A.U.W. Awar
Given 1o Professor
A new and outstanding honor in
the field of scholarship, the $2,500
Achievement Award of the American
Association of University Women,
was conferred yesterday upon Dr.
Florence Siebert, Associate Professor
of the Phipps Institute in Philadel-
phia, distinguished bio-chemist in-
ternationally famous in tuberculosis
research.
For many years, the A.A.U.W. has
been making annual awards which
have usually gone to younger women
scholars to help them launch their
studies.The Association hadlong
hoped that it might be possible to
set up an award, larger in monetary
value, which would recognize not
only promise but mature achieve-
ment. This has been made possible
through a fund raised by the North-
west Central Region of the Associa-
tion and to which the local branch
of the A.A.U.W. contributed.
Only 45, Dr. Siebert has already
received many awards for her work
on tuberculosis, and the new award
is for the continuation of her studies.

.By HOWARD BLAKESLEE
Associated Press Science Editor
DETROIT, April 13.- The exis-'
tence of vitamin-savers, substances
in food which help to store or use
vitamins in the body, was reported
to the American Chemical Society
here today.
The evidence of this newly found
diet factor came from 'experiments
on rats, and was described by Augus-
ta B. McCoord, C.P. Katsampes, B.P.
Farber and A. M. Brooks of the
Strong Memorial Hospital, Univer-
sity of Rochester, N.Y.
They studied the effects of food on
the vitamin A in the liver. In men
and animals vitamin A goes first to
the liver and thence out through the
body. The liver also builds up a
store of this vitamin.
Eighty young rats were fed the
same amounts of vitamin A. But
half of them were given a diet defi-
cient in one of the essential proteins,
an acid called tryptophane. When.
the animals died, those lacking this
protein acid had only half as much
vitamin A in their livers as the other
rats. Apparently much of the vita-
min had been destroyed due to lack
of the acid.
Humans get their tryptophane
from meat, eggs, milk, cheese and
other proteins. Liver is especially
rich in this protein.
The experimentors concluded that
Speech31 Finals
Won by Ace Cory
Ace Corey, '45, won the Speech 31
final contest yesterday afternoon in
the Natural Science Auditorium.
Corey's topic was "Matt Mann of
Michigan." Betty Nitchun, '43, placed
second with a speech on "A Lang-
uage Within a Language."
Other finalists were John Shock-
ley, '46, Eleanor Webber, '45, Charles
Mock, '45, Joan Selmier, '45, and
Charles Adams, '44. Harold Cooper,
'44, the winner of the Speech 32 con-
test held last week, was chairman
of the event.
Judges were Dr. Arthur Secord,
Prof. Ollie L. Backus, and Prof. David
Owen, all of the University speech
department.
SUICIDE SITUATION
LANSING, April 13.- (/P)- An at-
tempt to commit suicide is not a
crime in Michigan, and the law pro-
vides no punishment for it, Attorney
General Herbert J. Rushton held in
an opinion today.

adequate proteins should be supplied
to men and animals to spare the;
vitamin A stores of the body.
Tryptcphane is one of -more -than
20 of the acids wich body chemistry,
extracts from protein food to form
tissues. These acids are the princi-
pal building substance of tissues.
Other experimentors have shown
that lack of adequate tryptophane in
animals causes one form of cataract
of the eyes.
The Rochester experimentors re-
ported also evidence that vitamin A
is essential for combatting whooping
cough. Again working on rats, they
inoculated the animals with whoop-
ing cough infection. All the rats got
whooping cough.
But half of them died and the
other half lived. Those -which lived
were rats that had received adequate
vitamin A from their infancy. None
of the dead rats had bien given ade-
quate vitamin A, and not one with
this deficiency survived.
