Students Told
Of Epidemic
Flu epidemics for the next year

ties and today is the last day that
students and faculty members will
be able to receive free immuniza-
tion shots at the University Health
The department will be open
from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and with
no waiting for the shots. The
Health Service guarantees 100 per
cent negligible reactions.
The vaccine used is the most
recent development in flu vac-
cines. It is important to get the
innoculation before an epidemic
hits because it takes from two to
four weeks before immunity to the
disease develops. The immuniza-
tion effects last about four

Symptoms of the flu are high
fevers, chills, sore throat and
tightness in the chest. Since this
virus disease affects the upper
respiratory systems, any other dis-
turbances of this area could be flu
Flu epidemics hit large num-
bers of the population at once and
occur in very widespread areas.
The effects of the disease last
from ten days to two weeks.
According to Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe of Health Service, "We
are disappointed in student par-
ticipation this year. The Health
Service purchased this vaccine to
innoculate anyone who wishes a
high degree of flu immunity and
particiation in the project has
not been up to expectations."
All students wishing the shots
today should bring their ID cards
with them to Health Service.

nurse innoculates him with the vaccine to provide immunity to
influenza. The whole process takes about five minutes and re-
actions are negligible. Today is the last day for shots.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This interview
was held with a member of Alcoholics
Alcoholism is like diabetes, in
that it can't be cured, but it can
be arrested and controlled.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a group
which uses this principle in help-
ing its members overcome their
desire for and dependence on al-
Although it is not generally
known, there is actually a rela-
tively small amount of organiza-
tion between the numerous groups
throughout the nation. A cen-
tral office is located in New York
City, which issues several pamph-
lets and takes care of over-all
Once a year a directory is put
out giving lists of the times and
places of meetings in all parts of
the country and the names of the
secretaries. This is for the bene-
fit of members who wish to at-
tend meetings while they are trav-
Secretary's Position Rotates
The secretaries are the only
persons whose names are known
to the public, and the position ro-
tates from member to member.
There are no membership dues,
rules to follow, or lists of mem-
bership. For this reason there is
no way of knowing who belongs or
how many persons are connected
with the organization.
In the various cities where an
AA group is located, a telephone
number is available in the tele-
phone book for those seeking help.
From this they are in turn refer-
red to members on call.
AA feels that alcoholism, like
any other chronic sickness must
have something to control it, just
as diabetics must have shots for
their entire lives. Therefore, mem-
bers gather together in meetings
for the strength that this provides.
Two Types of Meetings
Meetings are of two types-
closed for alcoholics only, and open
for members and their relatives
and friends.
At the closed meetings, anything
at all is discussed. Those attend-
ing may use the period in any way
they wish. It is at this time that
everyone, from janitor to bank
president is put on an equal stan-
dard, for all have the same prob-
lem. All have a common bond of
experience, so that anything one
person says does not shock the
rest. It is a wonderful equalizer.
These get-togethers are excel-
lent psychologically, for they pro-
vide an opportunity for members
to be completely frank with them-
selves and others. It also is use-
ful in providing an example. When
one person sees how others with
the same trouble are not drinking,
it gives them an incentive to quit,
and provides hope for the future.
The open meetings are more of
a social gathering. There is usually
a speaker who gives his views on
Criterion for an Alcoholic
The criterion for an alcoholic is
whether or not there is any char-
acter change during drinking-us-
ually negative or for the worse. An
example is when a basically honest
person after drinking, steals. It
is definitely not a person who:
drinks all the time, because there
are those, who are not affected
by excessive drinking and those
who can not take more than one

Alcoholism is a disease. There
are definite stages with continued
drinking. The first symptom is
when an individual noticeably en-
joys alcohol, not only the drinks
his host offer, but the extra ones
he fixes for himself in the kit-
chen. He is the type who always
wants to be the bartender.
The second stage has begun
when the person gets fits of re-
morse after a hard night of drink-
ing and terrible hangovers occur.
When blackouts begin, the third
stage has been reached.
Blackouts are periods when a
person appears on the surface to
be functioning normally. He may
look as though he has only had a
few drinks, however, there are
times when an alcoholic has long
periods where he can not remem-
ber a thing he has done.
Results of Excess
This is probably the first time
a person realizes that he has a
drinking problem. After this if
drinking is not stopped, delirium
tremors begin. Physical disorders
may result and finally, death, if
the person hasn't been killed in
an accident or committed suicide
in one of his dark periods.
Religion and the law usually are
not enough to help these people.
A combination of psychological
and spiritual help are needed, and
this is what AA tries to give. Most
alcoholics have emotional diffi-
culties and turn to the bottle in a
There are 12 rules which each
member must accept. In summary
they are that he must admit that
he cannot lick his problem by
himself; that there is a force
greater than the individual; that
he has certain character defects
and emotional difficulties and that
nothing is good unless you can give
it away, in reference to advice and
help with drinking problems of
Also used by AA is a psycho-
ligical gimmick. Alcoholics look
at drinking only in the light of the
next 24 hoursinstead of telling
themselves they cannot drink
again for the rest of their lives.
Curing ofeDisturbances
Once they are sober, they try
to cure the emotional disturbanc-
es bothering them, such as if they
are dishonest, trying to become
honest, in hopes that the cause
for the drinking might be elim-
AA is getting more and more
younger people in now, because
they are beginning to become
aware of the early stages and
wanting to stop before it is too
There are even AA groups in
prisons. Before this time, there
was a return of 90 per cent of the
men who were paroled because
they had committed crimes under
the influence of alcohol. Now
there is only a 20 per cent return.
There is no stand taken by AA
on prohibition politics or any con-
troversial issues. Their sole ob-
jective is sobriety for themselves.
Jr. Panhellenic
To Hear Lecture
On 'How to Study'
Junior Panhellenic Association
is sponsoring its second Study
Forum at 4:15 p.m. Monday in

How to Study," including ideas on
studying for bluebooks, of the es-

groups in the past abgut the
same topic.

semester examinations.I


Chloe McColgate was a beautiful coed who majored in psych and
worked in the I.Q. testing department of the university. She did
not work there because she needed money; she worked there because
she loved and admired intelligence above all things. "I love and
admire intelligence above all things," is the way she succinctly put it.
Ned Futty, on the other hand, was a man who could take intelli-
gence or leave it alone. What he loved and admired above all things
was girls. "What I love and admire above all things is girls," is
the way he put it.
One day Ned saw Chloe walking by on the campus. "Holy Toledo!"
he exclaimed. "How sweetly flows that liquefaction of her clothess!"
The following day he saw her walking past again. "Great balls of
fire!" he exclaimed. "Next, when I cast mine'eyes and see that brave
vibration each way free, 0, how that glittering taketh me!"
When he saw her again the next day, he could no longer contain
himself. He ran up and blocked her way. "Excuse me," he said,
tugging his forelock, "I am Ned Futty and I love you beyond the
saying of it. Will you be mine?"
She looked at his quarter-inch haircut, his black rimmed glasses,
his two-day beard, his gamy T-shirt, his tattered jeans, his de-
composing tennis shoes. "You are not unattractive," she admitted,
"but for me beauty is not enough. Intelligence is what I require
in a man."
"I'm smart as a whip" said Ned with a modest blush. "Back home
everybody always said, 'You got to get up pretty early in the morning
to get ahead of old Ned Futty."'
"Maybe so," said Chloe, "but if you don't mind, I'd like to make
sure. Will you come into the I.Q. testing department with me?"
"With you I would go into a malted milk machine," cried Ned
Futty and laughed and smote his thigh and bit Chloe's nape in an
excess of passion and high spirits. Scampering goatlike, he followed
her into the LQ. testing department.
"First I will test your vocabulary," said Chloe.
"Shoot!" said Ned gaily and licked her palm.
"What does juxtaposition mean?"
"Beats me," he confessed cheerily.
"How about ineffable?"
"Never heard of it," smiled Ned, plunging his face into her clavicle.
"With fur on?" said Ned doubtfully,
Chloe sighed. "How are you on arithmetic?" she asked.
"A genius," he assured her.
"What's the difference between a numerator and a denominator?"
"My feeling exactly!" said Ned with an approv~ng nod. "What's
the difference?"
"If a man earns fifty dollars a month," said Chloe, "and saves 12%
of his earnings, how long would it take him to save $100?"
"Forever," said Ned. "Who can save anything on $50 a month?"
"How do you find a square root?"
"How should I know?" replied Ned, giggling. "I'm no square."
"How are you on English?" asked Chloe.
"I speak it fluently," said Ned with quiet pride.
"What is the present tense of wrought?"
"Wreet," replied Ned, clutching Chloe to him and dancing 32 bars
of the Maxixe.
"Next I will test you for manual dexterity," said Chloe. She handed
him a board punched full of oddly shaped holes and a collection of
oddly shaped pegs. "Fit the pegs in the holes," she instructed him.
"Let's neck instead," suggested Ned.
"Maybe later," said Chloe. "First the pegs."
He fumbled about for a longish interval. Finally he tired of it and
reached for Chloe.
But she fended him off. "Ned Futty," she said, "you are dumb.
You have the highest dumbness score of anybody I have ever tested.
Consequently I cannot be your girl, for I love and admire intelligence
above all things."
He hurled himself on the floor and clasped her about the knees.
"But I love you!" he cried in anguish. "Do not send me from you, or
you will make my world a sunless place -- full of dim and fearful
"I am sorry," she answered, "but you are too dumb."
"Reconsider, madam," he begged, "else a miasm looms before me."
"Go," she said coldly.
