THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Students Plagued by Cold Epidemic'
By FRAN SHELDON
More students have colds than
get rides hitch-hiking.
In a random survey of 123 stu-
dents on the Diag yesterday, The
Daily found that 62 per cent of
those interviewed claimed to be
suffering from a cold-or to be
just getting over one.
LECTURE HALLS and Health
Service were found to be filled
with sneezers and coughers.
According to Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, director of Health Ser-
vice, the number of students
coming in for treatment because
of colds is higher than normal,
but not unusual for this time of
year. He pointed out that "with
the opening of school there is
usually a flare-up of colds."
The impressive number of com-
mon colds has been attributed to
everything from "some bug" and
"too much homework" to "it's the
HELEN BEERS, '55, called the
colds "psychosomatic," and sug-
gested that "everyone dig down
into his subconscious to find the
"Everything is blamed on
colds," according to Paul Geiger,
'55, 'Ensian general sales man-
ager. "I think we can attribute
the lack of senior picture sign-
ups before nine this morning to
the large number of colds. What
else could keep seniors away?"
Hitch-hi1ers, too, claim to be
suffering. "How can we expect to
get rides when we're loaded down
with handkerchiefs, anti-hista-
Road show chairmen for six
towns in which the 1953 Union
opera will appear were announ-

'55BAd., general chairman of the
road show committee.
Chairman for the Lansing show-
Ing is Clarence N. Tinker, '54, while
Jerry Yardley, '56, wil be in charge
of the booking in Chicago.
Jerry Prescott has been named

'56,., has been placed in charge,
while Howard Boasberg, '57, has
been named Buffalo road show
Chairman of the Cleveland com-
mittee has yet to be named, Huff
commented. Anyone interested
from the Cleveland area on cam-
pus should leave his name, address
and qualifications at the Union
main desk, he added.
The new chairmen will work
with alumni in the town which
they represent. They will work out
publicity requests of alumni in
their respective towns and help in
the advance sale of tickets.
To State Post
Local attorney Talbot Smith,
who received his master and law
degrees from the University, was
appointed yesterday to the six-
rMan State Corrections Commission
by Gov. G. Mennen Williams.
The last-minute appointee, a
Democrat, was named to serve a
six-year term, expiring Oct. 1, 1959,
on the bipartison commission.
Smith still must be confirmed by
the Senate but will serve in the
interim until the Legislature meets
Smith was named after former
state controller Robert F. Stead-
fast was ruled ineligible to serve
on the commission. He was re-
jected by Attorney General Frank
G. Millard, who- ruled Steadfast
was employed by the city of De-
Yesterday Smith said that his
local legal practice had involved
non-criminal work, but added that
he had "become aware of certain
problems in Michigan prison ad-
ministration" when he served on
a commission to investigate last
year's Southern Michigan Prison

New Barrier Surrounds'
'U' High Athletic Field
Tired of being caught with!
their fences down, University
High School officials are adding
a new six foot barrier around thej
school's athletic field.
The field, surrounded by its old,
low fence had been used against
rules for the last four years by
East Quad men and others in the
AN AGREEMENT made be-
tween the East Quad and high
school principal J. M. Trytten pro-
vided that the field could be used
by East Quad men, but only after
5:15 p.m. on weekdays and all day
The agreement had further
provided that men using the
field wear gym shoes and get
permission from the quad office
before using the field.
With the low fence, however,
men from all quads had been
finding it no barrier, climbing
over and recently going through
where the fence had been broken.
To Meet Here
More than 5,000 medical alumni
have been invited to take part in
the Medical School's fifth trien-
nial Medical Conference Oct. 15
S xty University medical staff
doctors will present papers on lat-
est developments in medical re-
search. Papers and clinical pres-
eptations will cover cancer, tu-
berculosis, arthritis, poliomyelitis
and psychosomatic illnesses.
Read and Use
"Many times, both college and
high school men would be on the
field together before 5 p.m." Mrs.
Gloria Parsons, Trytten's secretary
reported. "Also they wore any-
thing but gym shoes on their feet
and as you can see, the field is
well worn now."
John Bingley, East Quad resi-
dent director, said that he believ-
ed that the quadmen would still
be allowed to use the field and
hoped that the new fence would
have its effect.
Tickets turned in for resale
to the Union Student Offices
may be purchased between 9
a.m. and 1 p.m. today in the
Union lobby, staffman Bernard
Levine, '56, said yesterday.
During the morning, tickets
may still be brought in for re-
sale, he added.
Last week, about 65 tickets
were sold for the Michi-
gan-University of Washington
game, Levine said. The resale
service will continue for all
home football games.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1953
Bernhd Rissmann, first German
student to study at the University
under Student Legislature's cul-
tural exchange program with the
Free University of Berlin, was
greeted on campus yesterday.
After registering in the School
of Business Administration, Riss-
man was conducted on a tour of
the SL Bldg. and checked in at the
Pi Lambda Phi fraternity house,
where he will stay during fall se-
mines and red noses?" one de-
manded. "We scare drivers away."
BOB SOWATSKY, '55E, claims
to have a remedy, however. "Keep
away from fraternities-even your
own. Stay in your own room and.
don't let anyone else in-they
might be dangerous."
One football player referred
sufferers to "some pills the coach
has," and several more advocat-
