had knowledge of body armor
that, Dr. Churchill said, might
reasonably be expected to reduce
the number of those killed in
action by 12 per cent, and those
v ounded by 8 per cent.
New Orleans Surgeon
He credited Dr. Michael De-
bakey, New Orleans surgeon, with
these studies. The war ended be-
fore the armor could be intro-
duced in any area of land com-
bat. The air forces flak suits were
an example of armor.
Other preventive measures are
for frostbite at high altitudes,
prevention of blast of bomb and
noise of guns from causing deaf-
ness, protection against trench
foot, and against booby traps and
land mines from injuring eyes.
He declared that the war had
completely unseated the danger-
ous teaching, popular at the start
of the conflict, that wounds could
be sprinkled with sulfa powders
and thus delay infection. The sul-
fas failed in this, he said.
On the other hand, the war
showed the ;great usefulness of
internally taken penicillin and
One of the war's great surgical
gains was prompt closing of seri-
ous wounds, which in previous
times had been left open to drain.
It was found better to close
most of them, he said, by the

"Little Black Sambo" and "Pet-

ites of children, Sarita Davis, Uni-

parents on the selection of books
as Christmas gifts for their off-
"If you want your child to en-
joy his Christmas book, select one
that suits his age and interests,
not necessarily one which pleased
you at his. age!" Miss Davis
Great improvements have been
made in children's books within
recent years so that now parents
have a wide choice of attractive
and readable books for their chil-
dren, Miss Davis said. However,
she added, youngsters are indi-
vidualists, and they won't accept
just any book, because like adults,
they usually want books about
things they are already interested
The improvements in children's
books have been both technical
and "literary," Miss Davis com-
mented. New processes of color
printing have done much to make
book illustrations more attractive,
while content has been improved
by more attention to specialized
writing, she explained.
The Elementary School library
contains about 6,500 children's
