TEXTBOOKS TO LEND:
'U' Library Aids Students
' By WALTER VOGTMANN
Perhaps little known, yet one of
the University's greatest services
to students in financial need is the
textbook leanding library.
' Since its founding in 1937
through student gifts and the fi-
nancial help of alumni, the library
ias provided textbooks for hun-
dreds of needy students-students
who otherwise could not have con-
iinued their study at the Univer-

HOUSED IN Angell Hall Study
Hall, the library's textbook lend-
ing services are available to any
University student whose restrict-
ed financial status shows evidences
of genuine need for the services.
The genuine need of a student
is determined by either a dean,
concentration adviser, academic
counselor or appropriate official
of his college, who may recom-
mend the student for the library
Books are charged to students
for one semester with the privilege
of renewing the loan for another
semester, provided the. books have
not been carelessly handled.
DURING THE PAST 12 years of
its operation one of the library's
problems has been to keep its
textbook collection up to date to
meet with changing text require-
ments of courses.
It has done this in part by
selling those textbooks which
have become obsolete, using the
proceeds to purchase books in

the library anticipates an evenj

IN AN KEYNOTE address to the
conference, Childers said that NSA
was built on two basic convepts-
meeting the material and educa-
tional needs of students.
Materially, NSA is providing
students with programs such as
the Purchase Card System and
foreign travel, exchange and re-
lief programs, Childers said.
Educationally, the Association is
concerned with the development

demic freedom, the Student Bill of

Students attempting to buy pen-

tion for treatment of colds or
strep throat will encounter firm
resistance from Ann Arbor's phar-
macists, a recent Daily survey
Most of the local druggists, who
are expecting an increase in the
number of students asking for
penicillin during the coming win-
ter months, will require a written
slip from a physician before selling

OF 12 DRUG STORES on the
campus asked to sell penicillin
without a prescription, 11 would
not dispense the drug unless med-
ical authorization could be fur-
Their position was indicated
by one druggist who pointed to
the caution printed on the label
of a penicillin container which
read, "To be dispensed only on
or by presription of a physician."
Only one of the local drug stores
visited sold a lozenged from of
penicillin without prescription.
"THE USE of penicillin and
similar drugs in few and small
doses may not by itself be dan-
gerous," one University pharmacist
"But too frequent use of these
drugs for minor ailments could
make the human organism im-
mune to them at a time when
the drug's powers are needed,
Several pharmacists opposed
selling penicillin without a doctor's
prescription because of uncertain-
ty as to how the drug may react.
They said that intramuscular
injections administered by phy-
sicians kill only part of the
Self treatment, administered ex-
ternally is sometimes ineffective
and often harmful in treating a
cold, they agreed.
PHARMACISTS also stated that
intermittent use of penicillin and
other drugs on the advice of a
physician is just as effective as
trying to combat an ailment with
large, sudden doses.
Explaining the legal aspects in-
volved Chief Pharmacist Arthur J.
Gibson of the Health Service said
that "the Federal Food and Drugs
Bureau has laid down no specific
and clear-cut law forbidding the
sale of certain types of penicillin."
Dr. Gibson emphasized that
control over the sale of penicil-
lin is an "ethical and profession-
al responsibility of pharma-
As for the caution printed on
the penicillin container, Dr. Gib-
son said it is placed there by the
manufacturer of the drug to pro-
tect himself from legal suit..
But the concensus of opinion
among pharmacists was that stu-
dents should be. hesitant to buyl
and use a drug whose effects in
some cases are not certain to even
well -trained bacteriologists.
