Autobiography
Of Dean Cooley
To Be Published
'Scientific Blacksmith:
60 Years an Engineer'
Will Be Title of Volume
The University Press announced
yesterday that it is planning to pub-
lish the autobiography of Dean Em-
eritus Mortimer E. Cooley.
Dean Cooley, who was 89 years old
yesterday, intends to call his book,
"Scientific Blacksmith: 60 Years an
Engineer." It will cover the story
of his life from his boyhood days near
Canadaigua, N.Y., where he attended
district school and the Canadaigua
Academy until he retired in 1928 aft-
er serving for 24 years as Dean or
the College of Engineering.
Taught Mechanical Engineering
He attended the United States Nav-
al Academy, was a naval officer in
the Spanish American War, serving
as chief engineer of the U.S.S. Yo-
semite and acted as teacher, adminis-
trator and engineering consultant
during his years at the University.
As the first teacher of Mechanical
Engineering at the University, Dean
Cooley worked in the first small en-
gineering shop which was construct-
ed on campus in '1885. The late Dr.
Charles Kendall Adams, then pro-
fessor of history here and later presi-
dent of both Cornell University and
the University of Wisconsin, used to
call this building a "scientific black-
smith shop" and Dean Cooley chose
the title of his book from his remark.
Aided by Secretary
The manuscript was prepared with
the editorial assistance of Mrs. Viv-
ien B. Keatley, his former secretary.
The American Society of Mechan-
ical Engineers is considering using
the book as part of a series of biog-
raphies of their past presidents and
honorary members.
Chaplains Will Not Meet
The meeting of chaplains of the
Army units will not be held today, it
was announced. However, the Co. B
"bull sessions" will be resumed at
9:30 p.m: Friday at 1550 Washtenaw
on the call of Rev. Robert Muir.

SEEKS MALARIA CURE:

r1. R. J. Posrter Stresses-Presen
ieeed for Qutiniiw Slbsn'iIles

By VALERIE ANDREWS
"Malaria is one of the most import-
ant problems of our troops, now sta-
tioned in many tropical countries;
and since our supply of quinine from
the East Indies has been cut off, sub-
stitutes have had to be found," Dr.
R. J. Porter of the Public Health
School, who is working on malaria
research with Dr. R. L. Laird, com-
mented yesterday.
"There is now a tremendous pro-
gram in the United States in a
number of laboratories for explor-
ing different chemical compounds
as substitutes but there is nothing
yet to supplement quinine or ate-
brin," he added. "Ninety per cent
of our work deals with the search
for a substitute with the idea in
mind of finding a better drug."
A quinine substitute, atebrin, for
treating malaria was discovered by
the German Die Trust in 1932, but
both drugs have major disadvant-
ages," Dr. Porter explained.
"Neither drug eradicates malaria
infection entirely. They are effec-
tive because they reduce the number
of malaria parasites in the body to
a low level but they do not eliminate
Cast of Co. D
Show To Meet
All members of the cast of "Rumor
Has It," an original musical comedy
presented by Company D, will meet
at 8 p.m. today in the USO- ballroom,
according to Pfc. Arty Fischer, direc-
tor of the show.
It is especially important that the
39 coeds who were selected Sunday
to appear in the production attend
the meeting tonight, Pfc. Fischer said.
Rehearsal schedules and plans for
the performance will be discussed.
"Rumor Has It" will be presented
toward the end of May in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.

all of the parasites and anyone cured
of malaria could relapse again."
"The second disadvantage," he
continued, "is that neither drug
prevents infection, even if it is
taken continuous during the expo-
sure period. The drug keeps down
the number of parasites but when
quinine or atebrin doeses are stop-
ped, malaria results."
"Another disadvantage of atebrin,
which is now used for malaria treat-
ment, is that it is mildly toxic, though
not dangerous, with results of mild
nausea and general intestinal upsets,"
he added.
Dr. Porter explained that the
general work consists of infecting
birds with the malaria parasite and
then feeding the birds different
experimental drugs with their food.
Blood smears are taken later from
each bird to determine the propor-
tion of infected red blood cells and
to determine the effect of the drugs
on the malaria parasite.
The birds are identified by differ-
ent colors and bands to show the in-
fection time and the particular drug.
The lights are connected with a clock
so that every three hours the lights
are automatically turned on for three
hours in which the bird wakes up
and feeds from the mixed food and
drug. The bird thus constantly in-
oculates itself.
The research work of Dr. Porter
and Dr. Laird is sponsored by the
government and the thousands of dif-
ferent test drugs are supplied by
several major drug companies.
Glee Club Gives
irst Serenade
Of New Term
The Varsity Glee Club, giving its
first serenade of the spring term last
night, sang such old favorites as
"Michigan Men," "I'll Ne'er Forget
My College Days," "I Want To Go
Back to Michigan" and many others
to girls' dorms and sorority houses.
Members of Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha
Gamma Delta, Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma, Delta Gamma, Delta Delta Delta
and Martha Cook dorm, which later
served the Glee Club coffee and
doughnuts, were serenaded.
Ray Bohn, Jr., '46E, president of
the organization, and the other mem-
bers of the Club who comprised the
winning barber shop quartet at the
V-Ball, sang as a special number
their own arrangement of "Let Me
Call You Sweetheart."
The Glee Club is planning more
serenades, also group sings, in the
near future.
Two 'U' Debate
Teams in Meet
Two University teams will debate
Albion College at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow
in Angell Hall, according to Dr. Ken-
neth G. Hance, debate coach.
Discussing the question, "Resolved:
That, the United Nations should co-
operate in establishing and maintain-
ing an International Police Force up-
on the Defeat of the Axis," Harvey
Weisberg, a.s., and George Simmohs,
a.s., will uphold the affirmative side
of the question in Rm. 4003.
Margaret Farmer, '46, and Dorothy
Murzek, '46, will debate for the neg-
ative in Rm. 4203. Both debates are
open to the public.
