Maintenance Men Pursue Fall Chore

If anyone on campus has 'seen
Men climbing up ladders leaning
against the General Library, the
warning is out not to be alarmed.
They are not breaking into the
building, just removing dead ivy.
THIS IS A routine job, carried
on by the maintenance depart-
ment each fall. After a long sum-
mer's growth, some.of the campus
buildings tend to get overstocked
on their ivy population, to such
an extent that windows and sashes
jam up. So, for a few weeks inthe
fall, 60 men climb ladders leaning
against the campus edifices, and
with what looks like an elongated
hoe, scrape the dead vines from
the walls.
The General Library has had
almost all its vines cleared, and
the next targets ahead are the
Science Buildings.
Not all buildings undergo this
process every fall. Some of them
have their vines extensively cut,
so that growth can be unimpaired
for a year or two. Rackham's North
North Wall was thoroughly cleared
last year, making it possible to
avoid any work on it this fall.
Other than keeping the vines
out of windows and sashes, this
gleaning process also helps to
maintain the general conditions of
the metal, wood and concrete of
each building.
WHEN THE IVY grows abund-
Wntly, it holds a great deal of mois-
ture, and if it is not trimmed peri-
edically, it can cause corrosion in
the metal. This necessitates either
putting in new sashes, or a repaint
job; the latter being the usual
Ivy growth on wood creates a
rough surface and the wood al-
ways has to be repainted. As for
the concrete, it just causes a
rough surface, and "pock"
marks, left by the suction cups
on the underside of the vines.
The maintenance department
employs this crew periodically,
and there is always some building
on campus that needs a "fall
- cleanng."
Sinai Explains,
Public Health
Discussing the public health
movement in terms of general so-
cial movements, Prof. Nathan Si-
nai of the School of Public Health
spoke yesterday at the Public
Health School Lecture.
Formerly connected with the
World Health Organization, Prof.
Sinai has analyzed health prob-
lems in all parts of the world. Aft-
er a year of absence he is back at
the University as director of the
Bureau of Public Health Econom-
Prof. Sinai divided health move-
ment into three fields: research,
training, and application.
Research develops more rapidly
than any other field and training
tries to keep abreast of research,
he said. However, Prof. Sinai feels
that today's significant movement
is taking place in the region of ap-
Health movements, as other so-
cial developments, begin with dis-
atisfaction. Out of this stems ef-
fective social action and inspira-
tional leadership. Prof. Sinai said
inspirational leadership gives way
to technical leadership, but new
problems are constantly arising to
give new impetus.

Blowles' Talk.
To Inaugurate
'53-'54 Series
"The test of our times is wheth-
er or not democracy can harness
the forces of the modern world to
benefit the common man and at
the same time preserve the free-
dom of the human individual,"
says Chester A. Bowles, former
ambassador to India.
Bowles will deliver the first of
this year's Lecture series at 8:30
p.m. Thursday in Hill Auditorium.
Bowles was given his ambassa-
dorship, ponsidered by many as a
tinderbox, because of his knowl-
edge of world affairs and experi-
ence as administrator, gained by
his war-time post as director of
OPA, and the post-war position as
the American delegate to UNESCO.
The policy which he carried out
toward India included the proffer-
ind of aid with no strings attached.
This included the development of
a major point Four program which
