By PAT BROWNSON
When American and Japanese
soldiers fought a pitched battle
virtually in her own front yard,
Miss Petronila Marsigan, graduate
student from Manila, abandoned
her last hope of living to realize
her dream of coming to the
United States.
Planning originally to travel to
this country in 1940, she changed
Jaer mind just before she was to
sail. Six anxious years later she
finally made the trip.
Miss Marsigan, who has been
working on her PhD in botany
here since 1946 on a Barbour
Scholarship, expects to receive
her degree next year and return
to her post as a botany instructor
at the University of the Philip-
pines.
* * *
AT THE PRESENT TIME, Miss
Marsigan is doing research on the
anatomy of plants. She has suc-
ceeded in growing a plant called
Tinospora, which flourishes in
tropical climates and is said by
natives in the Philippines to be a
cure for tuberculosis.
She was teaching botany at
her alma mater, the University
of the Philippines, when the.
Japanese attacked Pearl Har-
bor. At that time the University
was closed and it was progres-
sively damaged from 1942 until
its total destruction in 1945.
After the liberation it was re-
located in Quezon City, four
miles away from its former
home in Manila.
For a time there were no lab-
oratory facilities or textbooks,
making it necessary to instruct
students by lectures alone, she
stated. The University had to be-
gin anew after the war and the
first books donated came from the
University of Michigan.
MISS MARSIGAN spent the
early part of the war hiding from
the Japanese. During 1944 she
worked in the pharmacy of a chil-
dren's hospital. A supply of drugs
and medicines was non-existent.
So she gathered plants from the
hospital grounds and nearby bod-
ies of water.
These plants were boiled, pow-
dered and made into solutions.
Miss Marsigan said that at the
time she was not sure whether
the drugs were of real medical
value, but when shecameto
the United States, she found
them written up in scientific
texts.
The hardships were almost un-
bearable, she recalled. "We hard-

ly ate one full meal a day." No
milk could be obtained so she and
her friends made their own from
soya beans, rice water and corn
meal. "We ate sweet potatoes
'morning, noon and night," she
reminisced.
** * *
SHE REMEMBERED the day
she bought her first pound of
cheese since the beginning of the
war. It was one week before the
liberation and the price was 1,200
Japanese "pesos," about $600 in
American money.
Even though she can keep a
listener spellbound with her
amazing knowledge of botany
and her thrilling experiences,
the gracious and friendly little
lady from the Philippines re-
marked as she glanced about
her small private laboratory in
the Natural Science Building,
"The more work I do, the more
things I find I do not know."
Miss Marsigan had heard that
Americans were unsympathetic to-
ward foreigners, but she said em-
phatically that she has personally
found the American people every-
where friendly, generous and kind.
"I feel closer to- my American
friends than I do to my own peo-
ple," she stated. She said that she
enjoys living in Mosher Hall be-
cause of the opportunity to asso-
ciate with the girls and learn
American customs.
