Cold Cure
Not in Sight
--Nen ester
Medical Science is still a long
way from finding an effective cure
for the common cold, Prof. Walter
J. Nengester, chairman of the bac-
teriology department, said recent-
In commenting on a recent re-
port that a cure may be developed
within five years, Prof. Nengester
pointed out that it took many
years fo' an effective polio vac-
cine to be developed after the
causes of the disease were known.
The causes of a cold are still un-
known, he added.
He did not, however, rule out
the possibility that someone may
suddenly discover a cure, citing
the examples of penicillin and a
combatant of pneumonia, the de-
velopment of which was unanti-
cipated.
There has been some limited
research on colds at the Univer-
sity, Prof. Nungester said, but
added that little that is import-
ant in effecting a cure has been
discovered.
"I myself was working on a cure
in 1939 and was fully expecting
to find it within three years," he
admitted.
Dr. John S. Hopkins of West-
ern Reserve School of Medicine
predicted recently that a cure for
the cold could come within five
years.
He stated that a drug rather
than a vaccine would probably be
used. -
He explained that a vaccine
would probably not be effective,
pointing out that after having a
cold a person has immunity
against another for only a short
time.

PROF. LEE DICE
... mice are nice
Heredity Clinic Founder,
Prof. 'Die To Retire

By SHIRLEY BERKOWITZ
After 33 years of research work
at the University, Prof. Lee Dice
will retire this summer.
Prof. Dice, the founder of the
now-thriving Heredity Clinic, be-
gan his work on the project in
1923, when the University gave
him a research grant so that he
might complete his studies of
the peromyscus, more commonly
known as the wild mouse. Stem-
ming from a deep interest in the
why's and wherefore's of life, Prof.
Dice's project began with his own
little colony of deer-mice and
grew to the 5,000-mouse colony he
now maintains.
Measuring such inherited traits
as timidity, and epilepsy) the re-
searcher found that he was able
to obtain strains of the various
species he was studying, and esti-
mated the chances of an individual
inheriting one of these traits on
the basis of the frequency of ap-
pearance in his ancestors. Wish-

Inexpensive
European Trip
Air travel to Europe has now
been inexpensively obtained for
University students through the
Student Government Council trav-
el committee.
Arrangements were made with
The Open Road Inc., agent for
Flying Tiger Airlines, to charter
one of the D-C 4 planes which it
has available under a special rul-
ing of the Civil Aeronautics Board:
Cost of the round trill ticket to
Europe will be approximately $300,
a price considerably lower than
regular commercial travel.
There are 68 seats on the plane
and the committee is confident
that enough students will be in-
terested to fill all of them. The
plane will leave Idlewild Airport
June 27. Arriving in London and
Amsterdam it will return from
those points Sept. 11, arriving in
New York the following day.
Further flight details will be
announced in the future. Inter-
ested students can obtain informa-
tion about the flight today in the
SGC room during the Union Open
House. Members of the travel
committee will answer questions
and will also have Information on
various European tours.

ing to put his findings to practi-
cal use,, he obtained a grant In
194& from the University to be-
gin research on humans. He ap-
plied his findings to parents re-
commended to him by local doc-
tors. The patients supplied him
with a steady stream of "guinea
pigs," so to speak, while he, in
turn, gave them counsel for their
various problems, such as advis-
ing them on the chances of havingt
deformed children, on the basis of
former deformed children in the
family.
After setting the Clinic on its
"own two feet," as was his goal,
the research proect was turned
over to Dr. James V. Neel, while.
Prof. Dice began work in the
University's Institute of Human
Biology, which he organized in
1950, and where he is currently
trying to determine whether or
not the IQ of the average Ameri-
can has been dropping.
Prof. Dice, who graduated from
Stanford - University and did his
graduate work at the University
of California, has not completed
his studies. His deep curiosity
about the world around him has
prompted him to design and build
devices for measuring the hight-
time activity of the peromyscus,
normally a nocturnal animal.' He
plans to continue his work with
this project after beginning his
retirement furlough in July.
