Panhelenic Association's newly-
created system of-grants for af-
filiated women will go into effect
Awarded on the basis of need,
the grants will come from Pan-
hel's emergency fund. The fund
was set .lp to put additional grant
money into circulation according
to Marlene Jaffa, '55, Panhel
Public Relations chairman.
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
pointed out that proportionally
fewer sorority women get Univer-
sity grants because there is less
need in sororities than among
In certain cases Dean Bacon
said the University will suggest to
a woman applying for a grant
that sorority living is a way of
life beyond her financial capabil-I
There is however no University
policy on grants, she explained.
Each case must be considered on
its individual merits.
Panhel grants may be obtained
by petitioning to the organiza-
tion's financial committee which
interviews all applicants.

Graduates from American medi-
cal schools may soon be outnum-
bered by foreign-trained medical
students, according to Dean of
the Medical School Albert C.
Speaking at the annual Con-
gress of Medical Education and
Licensure Tuesday, Dean Fursten-
berg estimated the United States
may have between five and 10
thousand foreign medical men
seeking opportunity to practice
here in 1955.
The Dean pointed out this num-
ber is increasing every year. Amer-
ican medical schools, he said,
graduate between six and seven
thousand students annually.
"What is to be done with the
foreign-trained medical student?"
Dean Furstenberg asked, com-
menting, "Here we have a real
challenge shared alike and un-
avoidably by our medical schools
and the State Boards of Regis-
tration in Medicine."
Claiming that no U.S. medical
Given to Faculty
Grants of more than $78,000
have been made to faculty mem-
bers for research and research
equipment, Dean of the Rackham
School of Graduate Studies Ralph
A. Sawyer announced recently.
Included in the grants are re-
search projects on such subjects as
the structure and functioning of
farm families, child rearing and
adult pathology, microscopic in-
vestigations of fossil plants and a
book on Gothic structure.
All grants were effective Jan-
uary 1 with funds being available
through the school twice yearly.
school seeks to discriminate un-
fairly against foreign medical stu-
dents, Dean Furstenberg declared
that reports from educators who
have visited foreign schools are for
the most part unfavorable.
Reports show, the Dean said,
that foreign schools .often offer
curricula inferior to those of
American schools and the vast ma-
jority of foreign graduates in
medicine are "no match intellec-
tually" for American graduates.
Foreign Doctors Obstacle
Dr. Furstenberg said entering
foreign-trained doctors are "in
most instances° so inferior they
constitute a definite obstacle to
the progress of American class-
mates with whom they are. asso-
Language barrier 'was listed by
the Dean as one of the problems
faced by foreign medical students
and American professors.
Dean Furstenberg set up a four
point list of recommendations: 1)
Set up screening boards which
would give oral exams to the for-
2) Passing such an exam, the
doctor would qualify for ftrmal
examination by the State Board
3) Rejected candidates would
take a minimum of one year in a
basic science course in a class A
4) The candidate would then be
re-examined by the screening
The Medical School Dean said,
"It should be incumbent upon the
foreign doctor to accept our phil-
osophy of education, acquire the
knowledge essential to medical
practice, and meet our standards
of competence if he is to be grant-
ed the privilege of practicing medi-
cine in the United States.
PLANTS and animals from land

A lighted pedastal case contains
insects embedded in Baltic amber.
Another showcase is devoted to
assorted kinds of lethal plants.

THEY'RE CLAMORING FOR THEM! Who? Students. What? Luckies. Coast to
coast, dormitory to dormitory, college smokers prefer Luckies to all other
brands, according to the greatest up-to-datest college survey. Again, the
No. 1reason for Luckies' wide lead: Luckies taste better. They taste better,
first of all, because Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco is
toasted to taste better. "It's Toasted"-the famous Lucky Strike process-
tones up Luckies' mild, good-tasting tobacco to make it taste even better.
So enjoy the better-tasting cigarette ... Lucky Strike. But don't be like
the man in the Droodle above, titled: Pickpocket acquiring Luckies. Make
sure you have plenty of your own. Buy Luckies by the carton.
