The University has begun in-
stallation of a compatible color TV
system at University Hospital, Dr.
Albert F. Furstenberg, dean of
the Medical School, has an-
The new system, believed to
mark the nation's first permanent
application of compatible color
television for teaching purposes
at the university level, will be used
in teaching the latest clinical and
surgical procedures to undergrad-
uate and post graduate medical
Though it will be utilized pri-
marily for closed circuit color-

casts within the hospital, the Uni-
versity will also be able to origi-
nate color programs for direct
transmission to a commercial tele-
Vision network and local facilities.
Included in the equipment in-
volved in the installation are: a
live color studio camera, which
will be used primarily for the ori-
gination of clinical demonstra-
tions; a three-Vidicon operating-
room color camera, mounted over
the operating table, for live pick-
ups of surgical procedures; a
three-Vidicon color film camera
system, to integrate the closed-

circuit projection of film and slide
material for medical instruction;
a single-Vidicon m o n o c h r o m e
camera, for such services as closed-
circuit projection of X-ray films;
and 10 21-inch home-type receiv-
The medical school is establish-
ing a studio and control room
within the hospital, where all
equipment but the operating room
camera will be housed and oper-
Technical help in the operation
of the setup will be supplied by
the University Television Office,
which is an educational TV pro-
ducer itself.
"The application of closed cir-
cuit color TV to surgical instruc-
tion," said Dean Furstenberg, "will
enable a large number of students
to 'stand' at the surgeon's should-
er, to see what he sees, to observe
each precise movement of hands,
fingers, and surgical instruments.
In essence, color * television
equips the medical school with a
medium of inestimable value for
providing surgical and clinical
information immediately, and with
complete detail, to large groups
of students."

Lettuce 'Worthless' as Food

Says Foundatio
"The worthlessness" of lettuce

yesterday at Rackham Amphithe-
The purpose of the two day
symposium, sponsored by the Na-

in Director
At the conference, Dr. Robert S.
Goodhart, scientific director of the
National Vitamin Foundation de-
clared, "Lettuce is nearly 100 per-
cent water, contains no vitamins,
and is almost worthless as food."
He added that its greatest value is
as a "dressing."I
In a paper delivered by the Uni-
versity of Oregon's Dr. Monte
Greer, compounds called goitro-
'ens isolated in turnips and ruta-
baga were named as possible causes
of goiter. "This does not effect the
iodine deficiency theory as a goiter
cause, but our research indicates
that these food compounds are
merely another possible cause," Dr.
Greer said.
The vegetables might lead to
goiter, a swelling of the thyroid,
only if eaten raw, he said. Asked if
any additional foods might con-
tain goitrin, Dr. Greer said "only
further research can tell."
The compounds cause goiter by
interfering with the thyroid gland's
production of essential hormones.
Without these hormones, which
also need iodine as a rew material,
goiter may result, Dr. Greer ex-
Diabeties was the subject of an-
other conference paper. Delivered
by the University's Dr. Stefan Fa-
jans, progress was reported on re-
search towards developing pills to
replace insulin injections for dia-

'Drug Tags'
For Allergies
S Carr
Persons highly sensitive to more
potent modern drugs should be
"tagged", according to a plan ad-
vanced by Dr. Edward A. Carr, Jr.,
assistant professor of internal
medicine at the University.
Speaking Thurs., night at the
Washtenaw County Medical So-
ciety, Dr. Carr suggested a system
similar to the dog-tagging of sol-
diers and sailors carrying identifi-
cation of their blood type.
People who have a marked sen-
sitivity to the drugs often suffer
major complications, including
death, if the drugs are adminis-
tered accidentally. This is often
the case when a person arrives at
a hospital for emergency treat-
ment in an unconscious or semi-
conscious condition.
Dr. Carr suggested the use of
"dog tags" for men and "bracelets"
for women. He emphasized that
the tagging system would apply
to only a smal percentage of the
Dr. Carr pointed out that men
in the armed services quickly be-
come accustomed to dog tags, and
that it would not prove an incon-
One doctor suggested minor
tattooing, perhaps as a small mark
on some part of the body. Dr. Carr
suggested that some people might
be opposed ot the idea for cos-
metic reasons.
