Garg To Sell
Next Week
Generation,
Gargoyle and Generation will
make their final appearance of the
semester next week.
The Gargoyle will make its final4
showing Monday, and Generation
will go on sale Wednesday.
Although the Board in Control
of Student Publications decidedj
Saturday that there would be no
more Gargoyles, the dummy for
the final edition of the year had
already been sent to the printers.
"AND THE GARG'S not going
to fizzle out," according to Asso-
ciate Editor Norm Gottlieb, '50.
"It will be the bang-up issue it
has always been."
A story on the trend of college
humor and a take-off on Technic,
the engineering school magazine
will be featured.
The second issue of Generation,
student arts magazine, will devote
its 104 pages to sections on art,
literature, drama and music. Pho-
tography will be introduced for
the first time in the art section.
"Generation is exploring and
will continue to explore the pos-
sibilities of presenting the differ-
ent arts in a literary medium,"
Managing Editor Charles Olsen,
'50, said.
The drama section is mainly
concerned with the contemporary
theatre in an average community.
A critical essay by Strowan Ro-
bertson, Grad., entitled "All That
Glitters is the Chandelier" sur-
veys today's theatre, presenting its
drawbacks and suggesting im-
provements.
Following the article is a ten-
page layout of a "flexible" theatre,
designed principally to show that
an ideal theatre would cover such
facets as music, dance, theatre-in-
the-round, and all types of drama.
The architecture school, in con-
junction with playwrites and di-
rectors, is now undertaking the
project of constructing a paper
- model theatre.

HOG HORMONE:

Experts 1lncover New
Source of Wonder Drug

ti

By RON WATTSj
Thanks to hogs, ACTH, the pre-
viously scarce wonder drug, will
be made available for research and
experimentation in five times the
original quantity.
ACTH is a hormone which has
worked wonders in temporarily
improving patients suffering from,
a large number of4diseases.
EARLY experimentation with
the hormone was retarded because
of a great scarcity of the drug.
Recently it was discovered in the
Armour research laboratory that
the drug could be easily extracted
from the pituitary glands of hogs.
Dr. Jerome W. Conn of the
medical school, who has done
considerable work with ACTH,
believes that it is more impor-
tant than penicillin, but in a
different way.
"ACTH has its greatest impor-
tance, at the present, in investiga-
ting diseases, rather than actual
curing results."
Actually, the hormone does not
cure the patient, but removes the
immediate symptoms of the di-
sease, Dr. Conn said. The drug
has been used experimentally at
the University hospital for the past
three and one half years, Dr. Conn
remarked.
EXPERIMENTERS with t h e
drug noted that the adrenal cor-
tex was stimulated following in-
jections of ACTH and that widely
divergent syndromes (a group of
symptoms that occur together and
characterize a disease) were alter-
ed.

feel that a tremendous amount of
work is needed to validate the ef-
fects and conclusions based on this
information.
F. W. Specht, president of Ar-
mour and Co., hopes that a pre-
paration can be produced so safe,
that a patient can go to:a doctor's
office, get an injection and then
go about his normal routine with-
out being confined or hospitalized.
