Dr. Bell Splits Time Between
Health Service, Gymnasium

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the eighth
article in a weekly series on faculty per-
Like a good many other successful
career women, Dr. Margaret Bell does
not consider herself a feminist.
In fact, along with James Thur-
ber's famous woman, she likes the
idea of there being two sexes.
Dr. Bell has been on the University
campus since 1923, serving simultane-
ously as Professor of Hygiene and
Physical Education, Chairman of
the Program of Physical Education
for Women, ?hysician in the Health
Service and more recently, Acting Di-
rector of the Health Service.
Unlike many other women she has
found very little resistance to her be-
coming a physician. "I guess I knew
I wanted to be a doctor early in
life," she says. "My father certainly
didn't object very much. When he
saw what it was I wanted he gave me
a copy of a medical journal and told
me to read it. . . Mother was a little
different. She used to watch me
studying Latin names for different
parts of the anatomy and plead, 'Oh,
Margaret, when are you going to give
up this nonsense?'"
It was her interest in sports that
originally attracted Dr. Bell to physi-
cal education and then on to medi-
cine. Today it is still these twin in-
terests that monopolize her time and
with a record enrollment at the Uni-
versity she keeps pretty busy racing
between her office at the Barbour
Gymnasium and her office at the
Health Service.
A typical morning will run as fol-
lows: 8 to 10 at the Health Service.
10 to 12 at Barbour Gym. 1 to 2 Bar-
bour again and then 2 to 4 back at
the Health Service.
Auditions for Broadcasts
Will Be Held Tuesday
Try-outs will be held at 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday in the Union student offices
for all persons interested in partici-
pating in weekly radio broadcasts to
be sponsored by the Union and the
League, according to Doris Krueger,
co-chairman of the committee.

With the H 1alth Service averaging
well over 600 cases every day some-
times as high as 750, 47 bed cases,
and over 300 room calls every month,
Dr. Bell has probably been seen run-
ning more in the direction of the
Health Service lately.
Her original interest, sports, is still
pretty strong.
"Many people tend to underesti-
mate their importance," she says.

"As life gets more complicated, it is
the simpler pleasures of getting out-
doors and exercising that helps re-
lease tensions produced by our pres-
ent day civilization."
Resistance Leader

ing the war, will speak on the plight

Christmas is two people, kissing beneath the mistletoe.
Christmas is old people, sitting by the fire-remembering the warmth of youth.

Christmas is solemn people, bending their heads in reverent prayer.
Christmas is merry people, lustily singing carols in the frosty night.


Christmas is

Christmas is our people, doing their stardust best to sell and wrap the gifts that grace your tree.
