Among other investigations, the

treatment of leukemia and poly-j

lioactive material have been avail-'
able for some time and more are
expected, according to Dr. Frank
a. Bethell, assistant director of
the institute.
Dr. Bethell pointed out that the

The "nature" of experimenta-

Dr. Bethell indicated.
"The infection is usually rela-

Doctors at the Institute have

Of U' Chemist
(Continued from Page 1)
United States knowing no Eng-
lish and took odd jobs in Chicago,
where he finished high school.
Then he came to the University,
wanting to be a chemist.
In 1891 he got his M.S. in his
chosen field and became a full-
fledged teaching assistant. Four
years later he won his Ph.D. de-
gree, writing a dissertation on the
reactions of caffeine.
In 1897, he went abroad, first to
Munich, where he studied in the
Baeyer Laboratory, and later to
Heidelberg, where he worked un-
der Victor Meyer. In 1904 he be-
came a professor of chemistry at
the University and began his long
residence in Ann Arbor.

Song Lyrics
Managua, Nicaragua is every bit
the "wonderful spot" and "temp-
erature hot" as described in the
popular song of that name, ac-
cording to Albert and Aldo Knoep-
ffler, students from there.
This "heavenly place," as' the
song goes, is a city of about 100,-
000 persons, Albert said, and they
are all very friendly. "Most of
them have something to do with
the coffee and banana plantations
which are nearby on higher land
where it is cooler," he stated.
"You are either in the upper or
lower class because there ,s no
middle class," Aldo declared. "Stu-
dent groups are very active in poli-
tics but as yet the senoras and
senoritas do not vote, though they
hopefully point toward the United
States' system."
The brothers are now sopho-
mores in the (Igineering school
and' plan to return to Managua
after graduation. Albert expects
to be the chemical engineer in a
sugar plant and Aldo hopes to
build dams for harnassing water
power for electricity which is ex-
pensive in Nicaragua.
The Knoepfflers are now living
at the Vt#st Quadrangle.

synthesizing mustard gas.


Prof. Gomberg consistently re-'
fused to patent any of the many
processes he invented, and he
never earned a cent on them. Most
notable, of these findings are his
discovery of triphenylmenthyl,
anti-freeze fluid for automobiles,
and solvents for auto lacquers.
The professor emeritus never
married. He lived with his elder
sister Sonia at their Ann Arbor
address, 712 Onondaga St.
After his retirement in 1936,
Prof. Gomberg was showered with
honors, including the Nichols
medal, the presidency of the
American Chemical Society, the
Willard Gibbs medal, the Chan-
dler medal. He contributed to
various chemical journals, and was
a member of the National Acad-

American Institute of Chemists.

Keniston T alks
At SRA Panel
Asks Group To Seek
Service, Not Politics
The Student Religious Associa-
tion should seek to promote toler-
ance, understanding and service
and not be a political organization,
Dean Hayward Keniston of the
literary college told a panel dis-
cussion on "Cooperative Religious
Emphasis and the Educational
Program of the University" at
Lane Hall last night.
The University is interested in
the total life of the student, and'
religion is an important part of
extra-curricular activities, he said.
He feels that students should
maintain previous church affilia-
tions and that religious counsel-
ling is the University's active in-
terest, but a large responsibility
rests with individual groups. Stu-
dents should direct their own ac-
tivities, advised by the faculty, he
The most problematical aspect
of the question, Keniston stated,
is to set up a course in formal re-
ligious instruction in the Univer-
sity without trying to promote any
particular sect.'
