ON DRY CAMPUS WHO CARES?
Equation Provides Sobriety Test
By JOYCE FICKIES
A Canadian physician has re-
duced the difference between so-
briety and drunkenness to a simple
Dr. Robert G. Bell, who has
treated thousands of alcoholics,
came up with a formula which he
says will provide a rough guide to
the safe amount of alcohol one
may drink-one which gives the
same results as a blood test with-
out an actual blood sample.
HIS FORMULA reads, "L equals
(7000A over W) minus 13T." The
T stands for the amount of time
the subject has been drinking, W
represents his body weight and A
is the amount of pure alcohol con-
L represents the alcoholic
blood level, or the number of
milligrams of alcohol contained
in 100 cubic centimeters of
blood. The figures 7000 and 13
are empirical constants the doc-
tor has calculated will conform
with mechanical tests.
The doctor said keeping the
alcohol level down to 50 milli-
grams is -usually pretty safe. He
explained, however, individual dif-
ferences in the ability to "hold"
liquor may throw the results off
HEALTH SERVICE physician
Margaret E. Bell said she thought
the doctor's calculations are prob-
ably "very accurate" and come
close to approximating results of
apparatus used to test tipsiness in
courts and police departments.
She expressed doubt, however, that
Sharp criticism of office space
allotments in the new Courthouse
came yesterday from County
Register of Deeds Thomas A.
FitzGerald following approval of
a revised general floor plan by the
Board of Supervisors.
Although satisfied with space
allotments for his own office,
FitzGerald pointed out that the
27 departments to be housed in
the $3,250,000 structure have not
been given enough room fo fu-
He predicted if future needs
were not recognized, the County
departments would be in as
crowded a situation in a few years
as they are in now.
Gets Accident Fee
Margery Brainard, last fall's
Homecoming Queen at Wayne
University, has been awarded
$1,000 for injuries received in an
auto accident in 1950.
Miss Brainard had sued for
$20,000 in a judgment against
Stanley Barnes, a Detroit teacher
and driver of the car which col-
lided with the car in which she
was a passep1ger.
Bring Quick Results
(Continued from Page 1)
THE WEST Quad House presi-
dents also hit at the Board of
governors for offering no specific
reasons for the hike.
Leonard Schaadt, business
manager of the residence halls,
commented later the raise was
to meet "anticipated increased
costs next year in labor and
maintenance." He explained
rents must be raised to continue
the services of the residence
halls and to meet existing bond
The bond issue system has been
a bone of contention with dormi-
tory leaders for many years. Mil-
lions of student dollars are, over
a period of years, being earmarked
for a multi-million dollar dorm-
When new dorm construction is
planned money is raised by sell-
ing bonds to banks, insurance com-
panies and private individuals.
The bonds are paid off over a per-
iod of years out of fees charged
Charges have been leveled at
the University that the admin-
istration is trying to pay off the
bonds before maturity at the ex-
pense of good food and housing.
University administrators flat-
ly deny this. They contend that
bonds are being retired at almost
the same rate every year.
Talk To Be Given
Voted Down at Hillsdale
Student leadership and piartici-3
pation were of major concern this
week in colleges throughout the
Last week, the student body at
Hillsdale College voted to abolish
their present system of student
government and refused to en-
dorse an alternative plan. As a re-
sult, they found themselves with-
out any system of student gov-
Not until too late did the stu-
dents realize that they had com-
mitted "political suicide." With-
out a student government, there
would be no student representa-
tion, no publications, and no
J-Hop. The Hillsdale College
newspaper implied a dictatorship
of those holding the campus
funds might be a result of the
APATHY IS a major concern
throughout American Colleges.
Editors of the Cornell Daily Sun
feel that interest in leadership
and activities in general, is wan-
ing amongthe underclassmen who
will soon take over the positions
of graduating seniors.
The University of California at-
tributes a great part of the apathy
to living units which require their
pledges to work in the houses
rather than attending activities
planned especially to draw the new
students interest to campus posts.
IT WAS NOT apathy, however,
that caused an unknown group
on the University of Illinois cam-
pus to receive the news of Stalin's
death in an unusual way. Slight-
ly before sun-up one morning, a
Russian flag was hoisted to the
top of one of the Univeisity build-
ings. When it was discovered
shortly after 7:30 a.m. by night
watchmen, the flag was flying at

the formula would do any psy-
chological good in the way of
causing the person to drink less.
And students seemed gener-
ally agreed the virtues of the
formula were doubtful.
A woman student contacted at
a local drinking establishment
commented, "It all sounds like
Greek to me," confusedly ex-
plaining, "I'm not very good at
Another called the formula "a
little too hypothetical" for com-
mon use. Explaining that he had
tried it he said after drinking a
little more than a pitcher of beer
he had reached the unsafe driving
level "which is probably good since
we can't have cars here anyway."
But a spokesman for Zeta Beta
Tau fraternity expressed the most
emphatic opinion of all. He said
that the ZBT's had absolutely no
use for the formula because "all
85 brothers are completely sober."
