broad grin on his face, as he spoke

"Mrs. Roosevelt asked me what
grade I was in, whether I liked ath-~

would fly in a plane some day, but

happiest ten minutes of my thirteen
years," stated Bob, as his chest

Constitution Gives Wide
Powers to New Council
With an overwhelming 831-65 vote,
students at the University of Indiana
last Friday approved a new constitu-
tion for re-organizing student gov-
ernment at the university.
Steps which must now be taken to
make the constitution effective as a
working document include: passage
by the Committee on Student Affairs,
consideration by the entire faculty
and approval by the Board of Trus-
Before the constitution was voted
on, President H. B. Wells said, "If
the student body ratifies the pro-
posed constitution, I shall do every-
thing in my power to expedite its
progress." Several members of the
Board of Trustees have already ex-
pressed their approval of the consti-
The constitution provides for a 12-
member Student Council, composed
equally of men and women and or-
ganized and independent students,
will have the power "to formulate
and enforce rules and regulations
concerning the student body and to
work with the administrative offi-
cials in all affairs that effect the stu-
Specific powers granted to the
Student Council in the constitution
include: "to initiate and enact all
legislation on matters concerning
the entire student body, to represent
the student body on all questions
concerning it, to recommend to the
president the number of student and
faculty personnel on such commit-
tees as it deems desirable, and to
name student representatives to sit
on all such faculty committees as it
deems desirable."
The constitution just ratified by
the student body was the work of a
Provisional Committee elected demo-
cratically by the entire student body
last year.

Privates First Class Thomas Quinn,
James Riekes and Leonard Petiti of
Company G . of the 3651st Service
Unit have just returned from Detroit,
where they spent one week at the
Women's Hospital studying obstet-

As part of their duties the medical
students of the company took case
histories, watched the progress of
labor and took the prospective moth-
ers to the delivery room.
Each man was permitted to deliver
one baby unassisted. "It is a wonder-
ful feeling," said Pfc. Petiti. "It gave
me a feeling of accomplishment.
Although it was really only an every-
day occurrence, it sure meant some-
thing to me."

Casc or flying fatigue or battle
( ratigue, as they are correspond-
ingly callel in the air forces and
ground troops, usually arise from
over-fatigue, ennuie or low spirit
of the fighting men.
The men suffering with this fa-
tigue usually develop the inability to
car-ry on in the fighting front. They
are haunted by fears and general
lack of confidence in themselves.
Quite often, they show symptoms of
paralysis in their arm, loss of speech
or vision or some other results of
psychological factors.
First Step in Treatment
The first step in the treatment of
these cases is to induce the patient to
sleep in a situation where he will not
be disturbed by the rumblings of the
war front. If sleep doesn't come
through natural channels, sodium
aytol or some short acting drug,
such as pentothal, is administered.
As they wake up, they are en-
couraged to talk about their fears
and are given new confidence in
themselves. As soon as they re-
cover, they are urged to go back to
the line of duty as promptly as

Different in (ast War
In the last war the treatient of
these cases was different. In the
first place, combat duty was often a
static kind of warfare, and the sol-
diers fought mostly from trenches.
This war, however, is a very mobile
type of warfare.
In the second place, the former
treatment was based on the belief
that the patients were su fering
from actual shock which in most
instances wasn't the case.
The term, shell-shock, was used as
a name for the symptoms of fear, an-
xiety, and fatigue caused by the ten-
sions of war. It had the connotation
that there was a physical or mental
injury which in most cases didn't ex-
Consequently, these cases were
either evacuated to England or to the
United States. But since the period
beween the development of the
symptoms and the utilization of the
treatment was prolonged, these cases
had little opportunity for rapid re-
covery. In many instances, they nev-
er fully recovered.
However, since as much prevention
of the occurrence of these cases as
possible is desired, the spirit of the
battle units is highly important.
With a high morale, fatigue cases
are apt to occur less frequentay.
