Medical Man
Cites Needs
"Words as well as hands make
the surgeon."
Pref. Frederick A. Coller, chief
of surgery in the School of Medi-
cine, said recently that a surgeon
needs a clear head as well as good
hands to be successful.
In Prof. Coller's opinion, every
young man or woman who aspires
to be a doctor or surgeon should
learn how to speak and write the
English language effectively and
accurately.
Collect More Than Facts
Surgeons cannot operate on pa-
tients and then analyze the situa-
tion, he commented. "Surgeons,
like detectives, do more than col-
lect facts - they have to make
'sense out of them," Prof, Coller
said.
More than manual dexterity is
required of a good surgeon, he
continued. "This business of sing-
ling out a surgeon by his long,
firm fingers is a myth," Prof. Col-
ler added.
"You've got to look at the whole
man, because only in that way
can you have any idea what kind
of mind he has."
Prof. Coller advises college stu-
dents not to hide behind technical
scientific terms . "Don't forget the
accurate selection of a simple word
is often the best way of making
sense," he asserted.
"You may be able to tie a
square knot in a piece of piano
wire behind your back blindfold-
ed," Prof. Coller said. "However,
this won't make you a good sur-
geon," he concluded,

University Plans To Host
State UNESCO Meeting

By MARY ANN THOMAS I
Want some information?
Do you want to locate an old
friend, verify your birth date,
know if your old girlfriend is
married? Or perhaps you want to
know if your uncle attended the
University.
Answers to these questions and
many others may be found at the
University's Alumni Catalog Of-
fice, located in the basement of
Alumni Memorial Hall.
Keeps 165,000 Names
Supervised by Helen L. Schmutz,
the Catalog Office has names and
current addresses of 165,000 living
Michigan alumni now scattered
around the world, plus' those of
current students and innumerable
deceased alumni.
Organized'to keep a record of
current addresses of all Michigan
alums, the Catalog Office places
one section of each student's "rail-
road ticket" in a large master file.
On this card is the student's
name, address, school and gradu-
ation date, his parents' name and
names of two friends.
Trace Lost Addresses
The main problem is to keep
alumni addresses up to date.
Members of the 14 women office
staff are continually working at
the master file changing addres-
ses or locating addresses for var
ious organizations.
When an address is lost or the
alumnus has moved, the Catalog
Office has to find his new add-
ress. It is then that names on the

The annual fall conference and'

sided over by Prof. Loraine V.
Shepard of Michigan State Uni-

versity's education department.

ious problems in international
education and understanding and
several films concerning UNESCO.
Prof. Stowe will address the as-
sembly, on "America Confronted
with Moscow's New World Policy"
during the dinner Friday.
Registration for the two-day
conference will open at 12:30 p.m.
Friday in the foyer of Rackham
Bldg.

The Office writes the parents or

The staff may consult more
than 250 telephone directories for
addresses.
Current directories from all
Michigan cities, main cities in the
United States, Hawaii, Puerto
Rico, Montreal and Toronto,
Canada, are also in the Catalog
Office.
Alums In Biographical File
After a studeit graduates a
folder about him is placed in a
huge biography file. Information
about him from the Registrar's
Office, such as election cards,
high school applications to the
University, andhtranscripts, is
then placed in these files.
Subscribing to a newspaper
clipping service, the Catalog Of-
five then puts news articles and
wedding announcements of alum-
ni in these folders.
Pertinent information on de-
ceased alumni is kept in a sep-
erate file.
Gets Unusual Requests
As can be expected with a job
like this, the Catalog Office re-
ceives many unusual requests. Last
summer the staff was stumped
when a person called in asking for
names of all the fraternity mas-
cots on campus.
However, not all requests are
so difficult to answer. A Chinese
Loyalty
CHARLOTTE, MICH. (P) -
Karl J. LalI, a Jackson engin-
eer, holds some kind of long
distance record for getting hair-
cuts.
Every two weeks for more
than 39 years he has traveled
75 miles to get his ears lowered
at the barbershop of Don Marsh
in Charlotte.
Lall makes the trip because
Marsh befriended him when
Lall was working his way as a
youth through a correspond-
ence school course in drafting.

student had heard that her grand-
father had once attended the Uni-
versity so she inquired at the
Catalog Office. Sure enough, his
name was on file along with in-
formation that he was one of the
first Chinese students to study at
Michigan.
Recently a medical student pre-
sented another strange problem;
he needed proof that he had grad-
uated from high school. The Of-
fice was able to verify this because
of the information in the student's
file.
Realizing that one section of the
"railroad ticket" can be of such
value makes the job of filling
them out every semester much less
tedious, don't you think?
