LAKE LIFE STUDY:
Senstius Attempts To Diseover'
Why Erie Is More Produetive
By FRANCES PAINE
"Lake Erie is biologically the most
productive of the Great Lakes; this
means that it produces more fish per
unit area of water than any of the
other Great Lakes," Prof. M. W. Sen-
stius of the Department of Geology
explained in an interview.
In an attempt to find out the
reasons behind this fact, Prof. Sen-
stius is doing research in coopera-
tion with Dr. T. H. Langlois (a Uni-
versity graduate), director of the
biological station of . Ohio State
University. The work is being
carried on at Put-in-Bay on South
Bass Island, Lake Erie.
Several specialists are working on
this problem. One is making a study
of the bacteriology of the sediments;
one is working on the microscopic
animal and plant life of the water;
and Prof. Senstius is studying the
The ultimate source of all animal
food is plant life, Prof. Senstius points
out, and plant life in turn is support-
ed by the soil. Thus the sediments
from lake bottoms could be studied
as soils, as supporters of plant life.
The chief items considered in this
study are chemical, mineraligocal,
and mechanical compositions of the
sediments. The scientists also deter-
mine where the sediments come from,
and how they are related to geologi-
cal formations around the lake.
Sample sediments were obtained
by dredging from the area around
the Bass Island group. The char-
acteristics of these samples are
compared with those of similarly
obtained samples from Lake Mich-
igan, which were given to the Uni-
versity by the U. S. Bureau of Fish-
eries. By comparing the informa-
tion on the lake which is very pro-
ductive biologically with that which
is not so productive, Prof. Sen-
stius hopes to find' a reason for
Lake Erie's high productivity.
Investigations on each sample in-
clude a mechanical analysis for the
percentages of sand, silt and clay; a
qualitative and quantitative miner-
alogical analysis of the sand frac-
tion; and separate determinations of
those elements especially important
for plant growth.
So far, no significant differences
have been found between the min-
eralogical compositions of the sedi-
ments from the two lakes. This
does not necessarily mean that the
chemical composition is also the
same. Prof. Senstius believes there
may be a significant difference in
the nature and composition of the
organic matter content.
It is intended to extend these in-
vestigations to other parts of Lake
Erie and eventually perhaps to the
other Great Lakes. Anticipating
large numbers of samples for analy-
sis, special rapid methods are being
worked out, especially for chemical
analysis. Prof. Senstius hopes that
eventually these studies may be per-
formed by people who are not spe-
cially trained in the higher techniques
of quantitative chemical analysis.

"Hay fever and asthma sufferers
who keep going North in search of
summer relief havens instead of med-
icating themselves are making a big
mistake," Dr. Buenaventura Jimenez,
allergist at the University Health
Service, said yesterday.
A hay fever victim may find almost
complete relief in Petoskey one year,
he explained, but is likely to begin
sneezing and wheezing when he re-
turns there the following year. In
two years, he will probably have be-
come sensitized to the local pollen,
and will find no relief in Petoskey.
Will Suffer Farther North
This hay fever sufferer may go far-
ther north, perhaps to Sault Ste.
Marie, the following summer," Dr.
Jiminez continued, "but after two
seasons there, he will start reacting
to the pollen in that locality. Canada
may be his next refuge. This traveling
may keep tip until the unfortunate
person can go no farther north.
Then, if he has the time and the
money, Dr. Jimenez said, the hay
fever victim may head south to Mex-
ico City where the high altitude
seems to help his allergy-for a few
seasons. But finally, after 10 years
or so of expensive traveling, he will
have exhausted all his North Ameri-
can seasonal refuges.
Now he may decide to stick it out
in his own home town for a season,
but he will suffer more than he ever
did before because he will have lost
all of his immunity to the local pol-
len. Besides this ,he is 10 years older,
and his resistance is getting weaker
Moving About Won't Give Relief
He can always pack up and go to
Greenland or the Azores where the
chances are he will find 'permanent'
relief for several years," Dr. Jimenez
commented, "but this cannot go on

forever. As long as a person is al-
lergic, there is no place where he will
find lasting relief."
The only solution to his problem,
the allergist asserts, is to have his
case diagnosed and treated accord-
ingly at home. Nearly every one of
the bothersome hay fever pollens can
be defeated by immunization, he ad-
Health Service Gives Treatments
Approximately 500 students are
now being treated for .allergies at the
University Health Service, Dr. Jim-
enez said, and this number has been
increasing every year.
The sufferer is first given a free
scratch test to determine his aller-
gies. Then, if he wishes, he will
be given intradermal tests at a nom-
inal cost, after which he will receive
the individual treatment his case re-
quires.- A hay fever sufferer may buy
his medicine at the Health Service at
cost price, and will be given the treat-
ments free of charge.

and playsuits from the CAMPUS
