Goiter in Mother Stunts
Mental Growth of Child
Ten out of one hundred mental-
ly afflicted people need not have
been-if their mothers had eaten
food with more iodine in it.
Dr. Q. P. Kimball of Cleveland,
speaking before the School of Pub-
lic Health asembly here yester-
day, said that mothers suffering
from simple goiter resulting from
a lack of iodine may give birth to
children who are feeble-minded,

national tribunals up to the pres-
Iawin Robinson, president of the

tory of international law.
Don Nuechterlein, a political
science student, will argue that a
world court to deal with internal

Plays to Nation
University sophomore Alexander
F. Popp, who won first place for
his piano playing at the Horace
Heidt show here, appeared on the
national talent hunt broadcast in
Detroit Sunday night.
Popp, who lives at 2133 Brock-
man Blvd., Ann Arbor, played his
own arrangement of "Rhapsody in
Blue" on both programs.
Second-place winner Saturday
was nine-year-old Clifford Doehr-

dance act netted him a $10 prize.

"This is primarily a food defi-
ciency disease," Dr. Kimball said.
"The food deficiency is iodine."
Endemic goiter is much more
than just a lump in the neck, he
declared. Iodine deficiency does
not always lead to an enlarged
thyroid gland, but it does disturb
the activity of the gland, which
controls many of the functions of
IF A CHILD is born with a nor-
mal thyroid but develops an iodine
lack because of his food, his
growth may stop at puberty or be-
fore, Dr. Kimball said.
"The use of iodized salt will
avoid these complications," the
doctor stressed. "Iodized salt
is not a medicine, but a natural
salt. We are only putting back
the amount of iodine lost in re-
fining the salt.
Experimentsat Ohio State Uni-
versity and the Michigan State
Agricultural College have proved
that there is absolutely no harm-
ful effect in using iodized salt for
canning, he reported.
DESPITE the fact that iodized
salt is available, cases of iodine
lack continue to develop. Since
1936 there has been a tendency on
the part of the public to go back
to using salt without iodine, the

second time that the undaunted

aura of uncertainty still surrounds
their first attempt..
Four days ago the business
staff of the 'Ensian released a
helium-inflated balloon into the
wind. Attached to it, in a
weighted package, was a paper
entitling the bearer to a free
According to the business staff's
figuring, when the balloon had
floated high enough, the helium
would expand and burst it, causing
the package to descend to earth.
BUT SO FAR no one has report-

BOSTON-(IP) -Mayor James
Michael Curley, one of the last of
the so-called oldtime political
bosses still in power, says political
machines in America are doomed.
At 74 the veteran mayor sees a
new era ahead-and he intends to
be- part of it.
"The people," he says, "are bet-
ter educated in the science of
government-politics, if you say-
than ever before. Winning elec-
tions with only money and ma-
chine organizations is a thing of
PRESIDENT Truman's re-elec-
tion, Curley says, is a good exam-
ple of what he means.
"Truman won," he says, "by tak-
ing his case direct to the people
and convincing them he was right.
He did this in spite of a division
in his own party and even though
some members of his own Cabinet
felt he couldn't succeed."
Hopping on the Truman band-
wagon early, Curley supported
the President at Philadelphia
and campaigned vigorously for
For a half-century Curley has
been a stormy figure in Massachu-
setts politics-as mayor or Bos-
ton, congressman, governor and
Democratic national committee-
ON CELEBRATING his 74th
birthday, Curley made clear he
has no intention of retiring.
"I'll be around in politics for
another 25 years, God willing,"
Winding up his fourth four-year
term as mayor, Curley indicates
he'll seek re-election next year.
And, so far, there's been little talk
of much opposition.
