'No Discrimination in'U'Co-ops'

High Level of Cholesterol
May Add to Heart Disease

Each family works toward the
maintenance of the house, which
was originally established to open
a living place for people who have
difficulty in finding housing.
Frank Nakamura, president of
Brandeis, has lived in the house
for four years with his wife and
two children. In explaining the
policy of the house he says that
members are selected, but not on
the basis of racial, national, or
religious status. Brandeis "co-op-
ers" are only interested in knowing
if a prospective couple will be able
to live successfully in a co-op.
When there is a vacancy in the
house, interested couples are in-
terviewed by present members.
Landlords Not Asked
It is hardly proper that land-
lords of University housing are
not asked to abide by moral stipu-
lations of the University, but only
by sanitary regulations, Nakamura
said. Housing in which discrimina-
tion is practiced should not receive

University sanction. Ann Arbor
landlords benefit from the student
population, and they should ac-
cept the principles of the Univer-
sity, he added.
Nakamura believes that the dis-
crimination which one finds in
Ann Arbor is more subtle than
the overt discrimination of the
South.
John Nakamura House, one of
the largest co-ops for men, has a
great number of Indian and Paki-
stani students. "I have not even
thought of the problem of discrim-
ination in respect to the house,"
said one student from Bombay,
India.
Two for Roommates
A Negro student said that he
came to Nakamura after living in
a quad where he had been placed
with another Negro, though nei-
ther of them had requested a'
roommate of a particular race.
They were the only Negroes on the
corridor.

"Simple modification of every-
day eating habits may reduce the
danger of heart attacks in those
who are particularly predisposed
to this disease," commented Dr.
H. P. Streeten, assistant professor
of internal medicine at the Uni-
versity in a broadcast over WUOM.
He said research is showing that
the level of cholesterol in the blood
depends to a large extent on the
amount of hard fats eaten. Chole-
sterol is the main substance that
clogs and damages blood vessels
and leads to coronary thrombosis.
World-wide studies show that
heart attacks are largely associ-
ated with Western civilization and
particularly Western diets.

Two groups of Yemite peasants
were studied. Among those who
actually lived in Yemen and were
accustomed to a low-fat diet, cor-
onary thrombosis was remarkably
low.
Three diverse groups seem 'to
refute the new theory. Southern
Italians, Japanese and Eskimos
all have a high fat intake from
olive& and fish-oils, but compared
with most Westerners, they are
relatively unaffected by heart di-
sease.
The answer is that, for some
reason, fish and vegetable oils
actually cause a decrease in the
cholesterol concentration in the
blood.

By THOMAS TURNER
Attachment of students to their
schools has impressed him greatly
on his current trip across the

said, good behavior in schools
shows the affection, coming natu-
rally without oppression.
Teacher Training Varies
Kurz said teacher training in
this country likewise varies from
that in Germany. "Here," he said,
"the emphasis is pedagogical-on
method."
And in the classroom American
teachers are inclined to ask the
student "Where is that hitch in
your mind? Why didn't it go down
well?"
In contrast, Kurz said, "We lay
more emphasis on good teaching,
thinking good teaching leads to
good learners and a student should
look after himself."
This is a relative matter, he said,
but one can't have it both ways.
Kurz Travels
Kurz has traveled through In-
dia, Manchuria and China, and
was advisor to the Japanese gov-
ernment from 1924 to 1930. During
those years he was on the staff
of the Imperial University, Tokyo.
"Travel does broaden a teacher,"
he noted.
At present, Kurz said, he teach-
es at the technical university,
Stuttgart, as well as headingthe
teachers' college. He must be back
in Germany this month.
Since, arriving in the United
States he has visited North Caro-
lina, Texas, California and Illinois,
Kurz said, in; a "quick dash." He
mentioned anticipation of his visit
to Gettysburg, Pa., later this
month because of the historical
associations.
