Complaints Greet Haircut Price Boost
<> * * * *
Violent student reaction greeted
he announcement yesterday that
Ann Arbor barbers will boost their *
hair-cut rates by 25 cents on Mon-
Most male students complained
that prices are already too high.
Several men threatened to let their
hair grow until after finals and
then get it cut in their home
A NUMBER OF "Cut it Your-
self" clubs were reported being
organized in the quadrangles and
fraternity houses. Bowl cuts were
,rowned upon by the males con- ,.
cerned but as yet they have not -. :
found a substitute. One enterpris-
ing engineer was reported to be
making a head form out of tin
which allows hair to be cut with
a reasonable degree of accuracy.
Officials of electric razor com-
panies declared that their pro-
ducts would not work on long
hair. They advised students not k: >
to attempt to go professional
just because they have'a three
blade shaver.


FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1952



One bald headed gentleman
proudly went without his toupee
yesterday and chided his friends
about the high cost of living.
He claimed a toupee not only
provides a perfect head of hair
all year round but it 'also has
saved him bi-weekly stops at
barber shops.
Manufacturers of leading hair
growth tonics were unavailable
for comment but it was speculated
that the latest fad might be a
solution which stops hair growth
at a proper stage of development.
Meanwhile barber shops report-
ed a rush of last minute customers.
They predicted, however, that even
if business falls during the coming
week Mother Nature will soon put
them back in business.
Dual Program'
Now Offered
For Teac hers
A new dual certificate program
will be offered to a number of stu-
dents in the .School of Education
this fall.
Open to 40 to 45 persons, the
program will enable students to
receive both elementary and sec-
ondary teachers certificates in two
THE NEW PLAN will consist of
two semesters of practice teaching
during the senior year. One semes-
ter each of teaching in elementary
school and high school will be re-
quired. In the student's junior year
he will be given opportunity to
observe classroom situations and
take part in directing extra-curri-
cular activities in the schools.
Along with the actual exper-
ience of working with children,
the theoretical work, usually of-
fered in separate courses, will be
unified and taught by a team of
staff members.
After completing this two year
plan, students will be authorized
to teach in grades from the fourth
to the twelfth in Michigan public
schools. This will increase job op-
portunties for graduates, accord-
ing to Prof. William Morse, of the
education school.
More guidance and supervision
will be provided during these two+
years of professional training, andl
a closer contact will be maintain-o
ed with the instructional staff,
Prof. Morse said.
Students wishing to participate
in this program must be enrolled
In the School of Education and
submit a written statement giving
reasons for undertaking the newly
established program.

New Type Anaesthetics Meet
With 'U' Hospital's Approval

Two new types of anaesthesia,
one now being used' in Ann Arbor
and the other predicted for wide-
spread use in the future, have met
with favorable comment at the
University Hospital.
The first is a new local anaes-
thetic which banishes pain for as
long as two weeks after a surgical
-operation. The anaesthetic, efo-
caine, is a combination of procaine
and other slightly soluble sub-
stances which are absorbed and
released slowly by the body tis-
sues. These substances produce a
sustained effect for a greater per-
iod of time than their more sol-
uble, rapidly absorbed counter-
s * *
WHEN EFOCAINE is injected
into the site of an operation it
numbs the ferves in the area, pre-
venting the person from feeling
pain from six to 18 days. In many
instances, pain from the operation
disappears by the time effects of
the drug wear off.
The new anaesthetic has been
In use at the University Hospital
Religion Talks
Set for_.Fall
Next year's Religion-in-Life
Month will be held from October
28 to November 18, the Religion-
in-Life policy committee announ-
ced yesterday.
Four outstanding speakers will
be brought to the campus, DeWitt
C. Baldwin, director of Lane Hall,
Students will be able to meet
the religious speakers in informal
discussion meetings following
each lecture. Discussions will also
be held in the dormitories and
sorority and fraternity houses.
Baldwin said that Religion-in-
Life Month would be able to work
in close cooperation with Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher's plan of
bringing a religious speaker to
campus annually.
Luncheon meetings in which
the members of the faculty will
have an opportunity to become
acquainted with the, speakers are
also planned. M o s t religious
groups will co-ordinate the Month
with their own programs.


since January, according to
Prof. Warren K. Wilner, of the
School of Medicine.
Only specially selected surgical
cases, receive this anaesthesia at
the Hospital. It has been used
mainly on fractured ribs and oth-
er cases which involve a great
deal of post operative pain, Prof.
Wilner said.
NO AFTERf effects have been
reported in regard to the sub-
"So far the drug seems quite
harmless when used properly
resulting in effective pain re-
lief," the doctor stated.
Prof. Wilner also commented on
another type of anaesthesia which
has been cited for widespread use
in the future by Swedish physi-
cians. The Swedish doctors re-
ported successful results in ex-
periments of "refrigerated" heart
surgery on dogs, and predicted use
on humans.
This technique would involve
lowering the body temperature of
a surgical patient, usually in a
heart surgery case, to approxi-
mately 60 degrees Fahrenheit,
performing the operation and
then carefully thawing the pa-
tient out. During the operation all
the patient's metabolic processes
would be slowed to a minimum
Prof. Wilner said that a modi-
fication of this anaesthesia is
"very possible" on human beings
in the future.
Retired Teachers
Home Proposed
A proposal for a home for re-
tired teachers on the University
campus has received "enthusiastic
response" Dr. Henry S. Curtis a
local authority on retirement re-
Dr. Curtis has received 17 let-
tersr from all over the country in
response to a short article which

Although the home is still just
a proposal, many people wrote
in asking for reservations.
There are two such homes in
the country but neither is on a
university 'campus.
