Hormones Help Dispel

ASSOCIATED PRESS
POCT RENEW

By RON WATTS
Hormones that abolish hang-
overs comprise the latest list of
medical discoveries.
Findings, recently presented be-
for the Medical Society of the
State of New York, lead to the
conclusion that certain hormones
injected into the human body can
relieve hangovers, as well as kill
an alcoholic's craving for intoxi-
cants.

THE PAPER, presented by Dr.
James J. Smith who is doing re-
search in alcoholism, furnished
the first definite evidence that al-
coholism might be due to inade-
quate functioning of the master
pituitary gland.
Following the injections of the
Deadline Set for
Engineers' Data
Saturday morning is the dead-
line for engineering senior data
sheets, according to Bill Upthe-
grove, '50E, senior class president.
The sheets, which will be used
for organizing the senior engi-
neering class as a graduation and
alumni unit, are available at
tables in the West and East En-
gineering Bldgs. and secretary's
office, Upthegrove explained.
The sheets will ask for the stu-
dent's home address, activities, in-
terests and vocational plans.
Class dues not paid at registra-
tion may also be paid at the
tables, Upthegrove added.

hormones ACTH and cortisone,
all the symptoms of the alco-
holic promptly disappear, ac-
cording to Dr. Smith. He be-
lieves that within five year's
time, alcoholic patients will be
able to drink normally.
Dr. Smith originally attacked
the problem of alcoholism from
the traditional approach that it
was a disease resulting from per-
sonality problems, and that in es-
caping reality the patient turned
to alcohol. Later he rejected this
idea for his present theory of met-
abolic factors.
* * *
PROF. G. S. BLUM of the Bu-
reau of Psychological Services be-
lieves that Dr. Smith's findings
must be viewed with extreme cau-
tion. "The available data do not
substantiate t h e extravagant
claim that alcoholism is "due to"
a disturbance in pituitary func-
tioning and that the disease is re-
lated to metabolic rather than to
emotional factors," Prof. Blum as-
serted.
He believed there is no reason to
discard the current view, based
upon widespread clinical experi-
ence, that psychological conflicts
are prominent in turning people to
drink.

Correction for
WSSF Donors

All WSSF blood donors, whe-
ther they know their type or not,
should not make direct appoint-
ments with the University Hos-
pital, but should call Gloria
Griesing, University extension
2145.
Although only three donors a
day can be fitted into the crowd-
ed blood bank schedule, the Hos-
pital has made it possible for
donors who know their blood type
to make appointments over and
above the three per day quota.
