U.S. System
Of Education
Teaching Impresses
Swedish Physician
"We want to discover how medical
students in the United States can be
taught in four or five years the same
material that students in Sweden
learn in seven or eight years," Dr.
Haqvin Malmros, in Ann Arbor this
week as part of a six-man Swedish
commission to investigate American
medical instruction techniques, de-
clared yesterday.
"I am very much impressed with
the teaching methods here," he said.
He attributed the quicker American
education to more teachers with few-
er students per class. The American
system, he observed, is rather in-
formal and students are encouraged
to ask questions of the instructor,
while in Sweden classes may number
50 or 60 students with lectures very
Harvard Included in Tour
The commission, completing the
second month of its three-month tour
of the United States, has already vis-
ited Harvard, the University of Chi-.
cago, and universities in the New
York area. The University of Michi-
gan is included in the itinerary, Dr.
Malmros said, because of its fine rep-
utation and because they wanted to
observe how a state university func-
Doctor of internal medicine and
physician-in-chief of the Central
Hospital of Orebro, Sweden, Dr
Malmros has made one previous visit
to the United States, spending a year

Likes Ann Arbor Weather
He has done much work in the
fields of diabetes and tuberculosis.
Especially interested in tuberculosi
among students, he helped organize
the Health Service at the University
of Lund, where yearly check-ups foil
the disease are made-on the students
He likes the open air of the Michi-
gan campus. "It's much better for
students," he said, "to live in a smal
open place, rather than in the close
confinement of a big city." Here al-
most a week, he refuses to believe
that it rains in Ann Arbor.-
Altshuler Cites
Use of Music
In Psychiatry
Music has become the chief tool in
psychiatric treatment of mental pa-
tients who cannot be reached by the
spoken word, Dr. Ira Altshuler, psy-
chiatrist at the Wayne County Gen-
eral Hospital, said in a talk last
night before the Psychology Club..
Dr. Altshuler pointed out that psy-
chiatrists should work in close coop-
eration with musicians. He envisioned
special training of musicians in so-
ciology, psychology and psychiatry to
enable them to synthesize new "me-
dicinals" using music in the treat-
ment of mental patients. He main-
tained that further research is es-
The problem at present, Dr. Alt-
shuler said, is when to administer
music, what kind to use and how
much to give. Knowledge of the na-
ture and symptoms of the illness are
required, he said.
Music has been utilized as a thera-
peutic agent for treating individual
patients and groups of patients at the
Wayne County Hospital for the past
eight years.

Poison Ivy Lurks in Wooded Suburbs


There'll be no fun in kissing this
We learned recently of the multi-
tude of germs encountered with every
osculatory embrace. Now Health
Service serves warning that a mis-
placed hand or an uncovered ankle
nay lead an amorous one to the
rigors of poison ivy. It's dishearten-
Dr. Warren Forsythe, director of
the Health Service, has emphasized
that the little three-leafed plant is
mighty thick in the suburban woods
around Ann Arbor. Poison ivy, he
points out, has a nasty habit of sneak-
ing up on a guy or gal just when he
least suspects it, or has little concern
for Arboretum flora.
Danger Greatest After Dark
Springtime hikes and afternoon
walks in the woods have brought this
irritation to light again. "There is an
especially great danger of ivy pois-
ming after dark in and around the
shrubbery," Dr. Forsythe maintained.
We didn't know quite what he meant.1
Socks, slacks, and bluejeans cover-
ing the lower limbs aren't always
sure protection against poison ivy,
1e declared, since if the poison gets

ninisters to all Washtenaw County
xcept the four eastern counties
round Ypsilanti.
Many persons over the age limits
isually imposed by industries have
lualifled for unemployment insur-
ance, "swelling the total, amberg
aid. There are 13,000 persons em-
>loyed in this area, with a probable
'xpansion to 16,000, he estimated.
Beginning in May, Kaiser-Frazer
corp., will hire 1,000 men a month
intil they have 15,000. This will ab-
orb all labor available here and
nore, Hamberg said. Ann Arbor's
?usinesses and services will necessar-
ily haye to expand to serve this in-
rease, he stated. The housing need
vill be intensified.
Wage levels in the city's services
and trades have shown the great-
est expansion recently. "The eco-
nomic effect of student work is nil,"
he said, since their part-time posi-
tions would not be filled by other
labor. ,
Considerably more persons are em-
ployed in the city now than before
the war, more than during the late
twenties, Hamberg pointed out. Em-
ployment is slightly lower than dur-
ing the war, but gaining. The ex-
pansion has come primarily in exist-
ing industries and in services and
trades ministering to the University.
Hamberg said that he preferred the
national set-up to state autonomy in
the USES, since nation-wide coordi-
nation is more effective. States with
less stringent civil service require-
ments than Michigan have had their
employment services undermined by
political patronage in the past. How-
evr, the lines of authority under state
control are to be preferred, he said.
Sorority . .."
(Continued from Page 1)
against policy to accept Negro mem-
bers, said:
"At the present time, there is a
great deal of agitation of two kinds.
In the first place, there are the fair
employment practices in the commer-
cial field. They there are certain agi-
tators who are trying to carry them
over to other fields. I believe people
are trying to use this story for that
In answer to the question of
whether or not there is a ruling
against admitting Negroes to the so-

rority, Lois Patsloff, president of the
Michigan chapter, first declared that
in both the national and local sorori-
ties a vote against Negroes had been
registered. Later, she denied the
truth of this statement, asserting that
she had misunderstood the question.
Students Appear
As Movie Extras
Students working at Camp Davis,
University Geology and Surveying
Camp in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, last
summer served as extras in the pro-
duction of "Bad Bascomb," moving
picture, which was filmed near the
camp and is soon to have its premiere
benefit performance at a local thea-

on the shoes or clothing, it can be
tranferred to the body by handling
when the clothes are removed.
Reactions to the poison are varied.
Some persons puff out all over, taking
up to three weeks to get rid of the
In most- instances, it's just a case
of a lot of annoying blisters on the
affected areas. Washing with strong
soap immediately after exposure will
usually help to get rid of the poison.
"Watch where you step" was the
general warning.
Premature Sunbathing
The unwary student doesn't have
to leave the city proper to get blis-
ters, however. Health Service also
warns against premature sunwor-
shipping. Not that gradual exposure
isn't fine for Vitamin D and that
sort of thing, it's just that the Health
Service wories about eager students
who wake up in the night with hot
and cold spasms, uncomfortable itch-
ng, and general burning sensations,
as a result of sunburn, an unhappy
In time, of course, the sunburn will
go away, but there is nothing gay
about the moans of the sufferer.

Treatment runs anywhere from soda
paste to tannic acid preparations, to
relieve the discomfort of burning.
Blisters and Blood Poisoning
Blisters from walking and renewed
athletics cause their share of spring-
time malady, too. Dr. Forsythe warns
that, in case you don't relieve the
pressure soon enough to avoid a blis-
ter, do not by any means break the1
blister-not even with a supposedly-
sterile pin. In case the blister is brok-.
en at all, make sure that the top skin
is torn all the way off. The dangerG
of blood poisoning from blisters is
relatively high, and it can be de-
tected by red streaks in the skin near
the blister. Best advice is to leave it
alone-itll go away of its own accord.
There's no great danger of perm-
anent bodily damage from any of
these spring health hazards--mostly
they're just annoying and have a high
nuisance value. Health Service would
be just as happy if students would
take a little care to avoid them. If,
however, you do have any trouble,
they suggest that you make a quick
dash over to the Health Service and
get it taken care of. They expect their
first case any day now.
