be given an opportunity for a chest
X-ray, according to Melbourne
Murphy, president of the Michigan
College Health Association.

Society and local health depart-
ments, is sponsoring the X-rays as
part of a program for more com-
plete reporting of tuberculosis
cases in Michigan colleges.

said Murphy, a University lecturer
in hygiene and public health, "will
be the establishment of a required
course in community health for
every student who intends to be-

Holding up her success in the
theatre as proof positive of the
benefit of "invoking the great life
Force of creation," Lucile Watson
warned young theatrical hopefuls
to have an active faith in God.
The imperial lady of stage and
screen who is appearing in "Night
Must Fall" next week declared
that "it is infantile to believe that
you can reach the top unaided by
the Laws of Nature."
"YOU USE this Force, either
knowingly or unknowingly-I used
it knowingly, in a faith born of
desperation," she said.
Faith gives youngsters enor-
mous strength, poise and com-
fort, she said, recalling her start
in the theatre. Miss Watson will
celebrate her 70th birthday Fri-
"From the day I began my ca-
reer, I had clear sailing until I
achieved an average success as a
character actress," Miss Watson,
who is noted for her brilliant per-
formances of domineering old wo-
"I'm not good but God's good,"

AFTER her graduation from
dramatic school in New York, Miss
Watson promised her father she
would return home to Ottawa in

Dad who didn't think it was mir-

school got contracts with first class

"He didn't know about the in-

SHE WENT into retirement in
France for nine years and after
her husband died there was im-
mediately offered a lead in "No
More Ladies." "After this magnifi-
cent bid from Schubert I got an
MGM contract for five years," Miss
"The Agency has never stopped
working," she declared. "It's more
rational and reasonable than the
materialistic logic of today."
