Financial Support Needed
In Basic Medical Research

a

In 1955, the University's Medi-
cal School used research funds
amounting to $1,241,000 for re-
search work in its various depart-
ments.
According to Dr. Albert C. Furs-
tenberg, Dean of the Medical
School, public interest was pri-
marily shown in such health prob-
lems as cancer, arthritis, atomic
medicine and heart and infectious
diseases.
Dean Furstenberg believes that
analysis of work done in the past
year indicates a need for greater
financial support of basic medical
research.
Young Deis
Making Plans
For '56 Vote
The Young Democrats are start-
ing now getting ready for the com-
ing presidential election, Joyce
Greenbaum, '56, club president an-
nounced yesterday at a meeting
of the group's executive commit-
tee.
"With students naturally more
interested in politics with the ap-
proach of next fall's campaign, we
are making plans for a wider and
more intensive participation in the
club's activities," Miss Greenbaum
continued.
After a new executive board is
elected early next semester, sev-
eral open meetings will be held
to discuss various aspects of the
election, political theories, domes-
tic and foreign policies.
The Young Democrats Club is
a member of the state organiza-
tion of the Democratic Party but
functions independently of state.
control as it is primarily concern-
ed with Democratic political ac-
tivity within the student body.
AChh-o00.
ROME (A')-Mario Aspromonti
was shot in the head by ac-
cident 25 years ago and doctors
said removal of the bullet
would be too dangerous. A
head cold the other day fixed
that. He blew his nose hard
and out popped the slug.

"It is hard," the Dean com-
mented, "for the layman to see
the value of studying fruit flies,
and garden peas especially if there
is illness in the family."
However, the Dean pointed out
that a lack of such basic research
would deprive humanity of the
benefits of genetic medicine, col-
balt treatments and vaccines
against viruses.
At the present time 37 out of
143 separate research projects are
being conducted in the depart-
ment of internal medicine. These
projects include work on leukemia,
gastric cancer and glandular in-
vestigations.
Dean Furstenberg noted a cur-
rent tendency. "to emphasize the
high cost of medical research.
While this is true of the whole
area of medical investigation," he
said, "there is evidence everywhere
in modern medicine of what the
modest bequest or gift can ac-
complish in terms of a specific
project."
The various gifts and grants re-
ceived by the University range in
amount from a few hundred to
several thousand dollars and are
contributed by government and
private organizations as well as
by individuals.
Committee
Chooses Title
For Contest
President Eisenhower's Commit-
tee on Employment of the Physi-
cally handicapped has chosen "In-
dependence For the Handicapped
Through Employment" as this
year's topic for its essay contest.
The contest is open to high
school students throughout the
country. National prizes include
a $1,000 first prize and a trip to
Washington. State winners will
receive other cash prizes.
Essays will be judged for origin-
ality, impact, organization and
composition. They must be com-
pleted by Feb. 15.
Information about the contest
may be obtained from branch of-
fices of the Employment Security
Commission and the Veterans Ad-
ministration.

College
Roundup
By TED FRIEDMAN
Could women's rights be going
too far?
At George Washington Uni-
versity co-educational Air Force
ROTC is being offered. Two
reasons are given for allowing the
fairer sex into the course.
The college believes the courses
are important not only to men
but women. Moreover, by organ-
izing a female AFROTC detach-
ment, girls will be available not
only to march but to serve as
hostesses and ushers when needed.
Cornell is considering the pos-
sibility of a student exchange pro-
gram with the Soviet Union.
The program was proposed in
the Cornell Student Council. If
the Russian student exchange pro-
gram is approved, then it will be
moved that a National Student
Association sub-committee inves-
tigate the idea and make a com-
plete report.
Several other universities have
shown interest in the program and
many are exchanging periodicals.

ARCHITECTURE AUDITORIUM

The Madison City Council re-
commended that the beer age re-
main at 18 last week. The special
study committee made the recom-
mendation by a 7-3 vote, but at
the same time proposed that pos-
session of beer by minors be made
illegal.,
The committee explained delin-
quency was not particularly high
and enforcement of such a ban
would be impractical. Many par-
ents, for example, make alcoholic
drinks available to their children
at home. '
Ulcerous Gorilla
To Take Tests
NEW YORK (I)-Jambo, a go-
rilla, underwent medical tests
Wednesday to determine why he
suddenly has stopped eating or
drinking anything but milk.
The suspicion is that Jambo
has an ulcer and instinctively re-
stricts himself to milk to alleviate
it.
The 5-year-old gorilla, who cost
Pittsburgh's Highland Park Zoo
$6,000 as an infant, was brought
to the Bronx Zoo Tuesday in a
heated station wagon to undergo
the tests.
Engine Council
Four 'new members have been
