medical director of a Marine hospi-
tal in Klammath Falls, Oregon, Dr.
Lowell Coggeshall is returning to
the University to resume his position
as chairman of the Department of
Tropical Diseases of the School of

in initiating a program of drug test-
ing and malaria research in the
School of Public Health laboratories.
During the war, over 3,000 drugs
were tested for their effectiveness in
combating and relieving malaria.
At the Marine Hospital, Dr. Cogge-
shall was in charge of the study of
tropical diseases among returning
veterans. His principal task was to
try to find a substitute for quinine
as a drug for the relief of malaria. In-
cluded in his clinical testing vas a
study of SN 13276, newly reported
drug which reduces the number of
relapses of malaria.
His investigations of the possibility
of complete cure for malaria closely

Full Impact
Of Coal Strike
Barely Felt Yet
Truman Calls Lavo
A 'National Disaster '
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 4-President
Truman issued a report today call-
ing the effects of the coal strike a
"national disaster" and warning that
its full impact has only "barely be-
gun" to be felt.
The report came as the Senate rang
with demands for government action
and denunciation of John L. Lewis.
Whether it was designed to lay a
basis for government seizure of the
mines became immediately a matter
for conjecture.
"Manufacturing plants are closing
down all over the country as result
of the month-old soft coal strike,"
the report said. "And yet the Ameri-
can people have barely begun to feel l
the full impact of this national dis-
The report was prepared for the
chief executive by the Office of War
Mobilization and Reconversion from
facts gathered by the Civilian Produc-
tion Administration. Presidential
Secretary Charles G. Ross said Mr.
Truman released it because he desires
that "the public should have full
information as to the seriousness of
the situation."

The University of Wisconsin, faced
with an anticipated record enroll-
ment of 15,000 next fall, is planning
its first major construction program
in a quarter century, with Regents
approving a $9,122,250 plan for ex-
pansion, according to the Wisconsin
Daily Cardinal.
The Campus Planning Commission
has approved plans for 18 buildings,
including 14 classrooms, laboratory,
library and hospital buildings and
four dormitories, two for men, one
for women, and one for married stu-
dents. Three emergency projects -
a trailer camp, a powder factory and
an army air force training field - are
now providing living space for 3,926
veterans and their families.
Enterprising businessmen of In-
diana's Hoosier Hall, men's dormi-
tory, having done everything from
washing dishes to selling vacuum
cleaners to earn a little money,
now have tried a new slant. Choos-
ing the opening night of the Met-
ropolitan Opera's performances in
Bloomington, they busily directed
cars into their side yard and charg-
ed a 50c parking fee. There was
one catch, however; they had for-
gotten to get a concession from the
University, and the campus police
soon put a stop to the enterprise.
Ohio State's fraternities have for
the first time initiated new members
without the usual procedure of "Hell

Week", with its paddling, hazing and
other forms of physical and mental'
torture, according to the Ohio State
Lantern. Replacing "Hell Week" was
"Greek Week" when the pledges did
constructive work such as scrubbing
porches and painting ceilings, listen-
ed to lectures on fraternity history,
and took stiff exams.

Indiana University sophomore
men's honorary society, attempting

Results - two lost watches and
one lost pair of pants (the fresh-

pus was filled with spectators who
either laughed or turned red when

nesota state capitol.
It provided, according to the Min-
nesota Daily, realistic speech experi-
ence in discussion of the problems of
international relations in a parlia-


mentary setting closely approximat-
ing that of the UN. The general topic
was "World Peace through World
Order". Sub-topics discussed were
"International Trade", "The Trustee-
ship Question" "The Control of
Atomic Energy" and "Specific Mea-
sures for World Security".
