U.S. Conceptions of Siam
Are Distorted, Student Says

Siam presents a curious combin-
ation of the traditional and the
modern, according to Suratheen
Bunnag, botany student at the
University from Bangkok.
"In the provinces, ancient clo-
thing still is worn, while in Bang-
kok, the capital, dress styles are
similar to those in America." For
proof, Bunnag produced a picture
of four college women in Siam,
dressed in the latest in bathing
American Misconceptions
"Unfortunately, many Ameri-
cans have misconceptions about
Siam," Bunnag said. "These mis-
taken ideas were supported by the
film, 'Anna and the King of Siam,'
which is only five percent fact,
'U Symphony Will
Present Concert
The University Symphony Or-
chestra, under the direction of
Prof. Wayne Dunlap, will present
a concert at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday,
in Hill Auditorium.
The 85 member orchestra will
present Serenade for Woodwinds
and Horns in B-flat major, by
Mozart, and the Concerto in D
Minor, Op. 47, for Violin by Sibel-
ius, with Emil Raab, concertmas-
ter, as soloist.

and the rest, distortion."
Bunnag, who came to the Uni-
versity as an official of the Siam
Department of Agriculture, is shy
about his connections with royalty.
Actually, his grandmother was the
consort of King Rama ,V. "But I
prefer to be judged as an indi-
vidual rather than for a title which
I might have," he said.
The Siamese are proud of hav-
ing developed their own culture,
and social institutions without
borrowing from other countries.
Bunnag said. "We have a modern
democratic parliamentary system
of government, our own literature
and language, and our own tradi-
tional architecture as well as mod-
ern construction."
Likes America
Bunnag likes America, especially
"its easygoing ways and advanced
technological developments." He
will complete his studies at the
University next semester and then
plans to tour Europe before re-
turning home.
Bunnag said that he was "very
happy to hear that a girl from
Siam is coming here to study next
semester." But this is not only be-
cause he is the sole student from
Siam studying at the Univer-
sity, he explained, for he really
thinks "American women are very

have never served a Negro yet.
We don't know how; they have a

I collaborators in this investigation'
of the effects of viruses in experi-
mental cancers.
Cancer Causes
Cancer i nvest i gators have
shown that certain cancers in an-
imals are caused by viruses, Dr.
Albert H. Wheeler, who is assist-
ing Dr. Kahn in the research, said.
If it is found that the viruses play
a greater role in experimental
cancers than has heretofore been
recognized, anti-body production
in cancer might be expected, and


the development of a pi actical
test for their detection developed,
hie explained.
Gray mice of a strain suscep-
tible to cancer, normal albino
mice of a strain which has proved
useful in other anti-body studies,
and rabbits of a type which also
have been used in earlier research,
will participate in the project.
Tissue Cultures
Another line of investigation
which the doctors will pursue is l
the study of tissue cultures rend-
ered cancerous by chemical means.
Various hormones are also being
used in conjunction with some of
the investigations, as there is evi-
dence that hormones have an ef-
fect in stimulating the production
of anti-bodies against various bac-
teria. Other secretions of the
body, such as urine and sputum
will be investigated for the possi-
bilities of containing cancer anti-
