Garg Staff Mourns Canoe as
Second Issue Goes to Press
By PERRY LOGAN
WHITMORE LAKE, DEC. 5-
(CIO)-Jubilation ran high here
tonight, when members of the
Gargoyle staff learned that Ed
(The Great Gatsby) McKinlay,
long-time managing editor of
Michigan's foremost humor maga-
zine, had mysteriously disappeared
when his canoe overturned on
the lake during the afternoon. His
feet were encased in cement at
Best of All Possible Worlds
McKinlay's friends expressed
the hope that he had been "taken
for a ride."
Photographs of all sorts of art
work produced by students of
Cooper Union School in New York
are being displayed on the first
door of the architecture college
building until Dec. 20.
The exhibition, which recently
appeared at Michigan State Col-
lege, includes reproductions of
drawings, paintings, sculpture,
plastic design, advertising design,
architecture, textile design and
Cooper Union, founded in 1859
by Peter Cooper, is one of the best
art schools in the country, accord-
ing to Karl A. Kasten of the arch-
itecture college teaching staff.
Denied the opportunity of acquir-
ing a "formal education, Cooper
established his school on the prin-
ciples of free tuition for all stu-
dents and no discrimination in en-
trance requirements because of
race, creed, or color. During its 86
years of existence the school has
instructed approximately 210,-

Talk on 'Poland Today'
"Poland Today" will be the top-
Ic of a talk by A. J. Rathnaw, De-
troit civic leader who recently re-
turned from a 9-month trip to
Poland as UNRRA representative,
at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Inter-
national Center under the aus-
pices of the Polonia Club.
Comment from several of Mc-
Kinlay's 18,000 fellow students
about his passing was uniformly
dull, as most of them had never
-heard of him. He was described
by his colleagues on the Gargoyle
as mentally negligible.
General opinion in the teletype
room of The Daily had it that this
was just a publicity stunt to ad-
vertise the coming of the second
Gargoyle of the season, which re-
putedly will bring gales of laugh-
ter to an apathetic student body
when it appears all over campus
Wednesday. "After all," The
Daily's editorial director pointed
out, "they can always get a new
man. Managing editors are a dime
a dozen. Look at ours."
December Is Joy Month
It was generally agreed that the
December Garg was the high
point of McKinlay's impeccable
career. "It's a wonderful issue,"
he kept saying, referring to his
own story on St. Nicholas. Most
striking innovation in this issue
is a handsome red and black cov-
er designed by an inspired art
In a drive to unseat the New
York Sunday News as the period-
ical having the nation's largest
paid circulation per issue, six
million copies of the December
Garg have been printed for dis-
tribution Wednesday. "We expect
to sell throughout Washtenaw
County," the circulation manager

A third major recommendation
was to amend certain administra-
tive portions of the G.I. Bill of
Rights "Which currently does not
provide for either effective or ef-
Would Coordinate Agencies
Rockefeller, 33, whose brother
Nelson is a former Assistant Sec-
retary of State, proposed appoint-
ment of a czar of veterans affairs
to coordinate the work of fifteen
or more federal agencies which he
said currently were concerned
with veterans' affairs.
The veterans administration,
Rockefeller said, has done a "spec-
tacular" job and he refrained from
criticizing General Omar N. Brad-
ley, the veterans' administrator.
The Negro veteran, he asserted,
has encountered the most diffi-
culties in reverting to civilian life
"Because his color nullifies the
fact that he is a veteran."
Although no effective treatment
for Hansen's disease (leprosy) has
yet been -developed, the results of
current research with certain sul-
fanilimide drugs are "very en-
couraging," Dr. Malcolm H. Soule
of the bacteriology department
revealed yesterday upon his re-
turn from the Pan American Con-
ference on Leprosy in Rio de
Chosen by the State Depart-
ment as United States representa-
tive, Dr. Soule acted as general
secretary, to the conference. He
has done extensive research on
the causative agent of leprosy,
Dr.. Soule explained that the
name ,"Hansen's disease" is being
used to replace "leprosy" because
of the stigma generally attached
to the latter term.
Chaulmoogra oil, which was
used for centuries in treating lep-
ers, is considered to have had
beneficial results in many cases,
Dr. Soule said. However, he added,
authorities are "still hoping for
something better" than either
sulfaniiihideedrugs or the oil.
It was a mixture of "crabs' eyes,
coral, harts' horns, wood lice,
pearls and vipers" that patients
used to complain about as bitter
medicine, Prof. Frederick F. Blicke
of the pharmaceutical chemistry
department said in a review of the
history of drugs.
Although man has been inter-
ested for centuries in drugs capa-
ble of curing disease, little or no
progress wills made before the
middle of the 19th century, Prof.
Blicke declared. He said that up
to that time medical treatments
rcmained much the same as those
used in Egypt 3,000 years earlier.
"Solely because of the modern
developments in the basic sciences
of chemistry, physics, and biology,
a truly miraculous improvement
in drug therapy has been made,"
Prof. Blicke indicated.
Direct contact with a leper is
the only known means of con-
tracting the disease, Dr. Soule
declared. Hansen's disease actual-
ly presents no problem in the
United States, he said, as the
approximately 1,500 leprous per-
sons are either in a hospital at
Carville, La., or under the control
of Boards of Health.
