DickyBrink To End Stay at Hospital

Dicky Brink, 10-year-old polio
patient, will get his Christmas pre-
sents at home this year, instead
of at the University Hospital polio
The boy will end a 28-month
stay at the Hospital's respiratory
center tomorrow when he leaves
for his home in Morenci, Mich.
* * *
SEVERAL Wolverine gridiron
greats are expected to be on hand
for a "going home" party today.
The players have already present-
ed Dicky with an autographed
trophy of the Michigan-Cornell
game-a football bearing signa-
tures of Fritz Crisler, Bennie Oos-
terbaan, Ted Kress, Tim Green,
Bill Billings and other members
of the 1952 Wolverines.
The attention the boy has re-
ceived from the gridders has
been a factor in helping Dicky
overcome the fear of leaving the
Hospital and becoming adjusted
to living at home, according to
Dr. David G. Dickinson, the
center's medical director.'
An avid sports fan, Dicky not
only attended the Homecoming
game in Michigan Stadium, but
also saw a baseball game in De-

Berry Answers Charges
Concerning NSA Finances

A detailed account of National
Student Association finances has
been prepared by Phil Berry,
Grad., to refute the charge of
"The American Student" that the
NSA "'milks about $37,790 a year
from students who are ignorant of
its very existence."
Explaining that the $37,000 fi-
gure was a preliminary estimate
which included large amounts of
jnoney raised by grants and not
used for national office operation,
Berry said the actual NSA budget
this year calls for expenses of
PRESENTLY serving as head of

the former Student Legislature
vice-president is working to set
up Association financing on a per-
manently sound basis.
Berry pointed out that member-
ship dues have declined markedly

since the Association was founded
six years ago.
The income will go toward salar-
ies of student officers and general
office expenses, Berry said. Three
elected officials receive $2,000 a
year and work full-time for NSA.
In using the $37,790 figure,
"The American Student" did not
differentiate between student
dues and the thousands of dol-
lars provided by grants toward
the International Program and
the Leadership Training Pro-
gram, Berry added.
"Within the last month, how-
ever, Walter Annenberg, publisher
of the Philadelphia Inquirer, gave
the Association a grant of $2,500
for general office operation," he
This was the first grant ever
offered for general Association
work rather than a specific pro-

later was transfered to the center
for the highly specialized treat-
ment given there.
Dicky's more than two-year stay
4t the hospital has been longer
than usual, Dr. Dickinson said.
The average patient recovers
enough to leave in a few months.

Schulze Talks
On Families
The shift from rural to urban
life has caused pronounced changes
in the size and character of the
American family, Robert O.
Schulze of the sociology depart-
ment said'last night.
Schulze spoke on "Marriage and
the Family in the U.S.A.," the last
in a series of talks designed to
acquaint foreign students on cam-
pus with different aspects of
American life.
He told how industrialization of
the nation and its resultant migra-
tion to the cities had caused the
size of the family to decrease.
Once, a great number of child-
ren was needed in the family to
help with the chores, he explained,
but since the industrialization the
average family now has only two
or three children instead of the
seven or eight of 100 years ago.
Schulze also observed that al-
though we take them for granted,
dating and "romantic love" until
recently were unique to American

Martinet Talks
On Languages
Over-emphasis of the diver-
gences of languages has been the
major difficulty in language study,
Prof. Andre Martinet, director of
the language department at Co-
lumbia University, said yesterday.
Prof. Martinet said the evolu-
tion of modern languages has been
erroneously compared to the
branching off of a "tree of lang-
uages." This simile ignores the
fact that languages continue to in-
flueceeach other even though
