Prepares for Solo
Specialized schools tend more to
aid the student in preparing for
solo playing. "Concert musicians
want to play .-music primarily for
their love of music. Schools do not
alter this much," he said.

"Well, it looks like this flu epi-
demic is finally over."'"
"It sure looks that way - but
you had better knock on wood
just in case."
How many times has this same
conversation taken place in and
around campus in the past week?
Undoubtedly, this form of
"small talk has become a tem-
porary cliche. Stricken students
are rejoicing their return to the
outside world, professors are hap-
py to see their lectures and pro-
found statements being absorbed
by a "full house" once again and

dormitories - wbll, they are just
Up on the hill, Asian Flu hit
the women's dormitories in full
force. Although any stricken gifl
living in Stockwell, Alice-Lloyd,
Mosher-Jordan or Couzens will
emphatically insist that "We had
the flu and we were the ones that
suffered," it seems that no one is
more glad to see the end of the
epidemic than the staff people in
House mothers, dietitians,
kitchen workers and dorm nurses
combined forces, producing a
ready and able regiment to com-
bat "Operation Asian."
At many house meetings on the
"hill," house mothers could be
heard singing the praises of the
work of her staff during the peak
o'f the flu battle. Everyone from
janitors to dish-washers contri-
buted more than their share of
time and energy.
To get an adequate picture of
the staff situation during the flu,
staff members from Couzens Hall,
one of many dormitories hard-hit
by the flu bug, told The Daily the
part they played during the peak
of the epidemic.
Mrs. Mildreth Kretzschmar,
East Couzens House Director,
commented that the Couzens staff
did their best to fight off and
help cure the disease.
She herself acknowledged that
much of her own time was spent
walking from room to room visit-
ing her students, bringing them
juices and handing out free (and
good) advice. Her half-order-
half-advice remarks, such as
"Better stay in tonight," or "I
think it might be better to stay
in and listen to the game," were
generally taken with acceptance,
but long faces, she said.
Mrs. Reed, Dietitian Manager
of Couzens, said that food and
kitchen problems could have been
enormous, but weren't because of
full cooperation by all the kitchen
employes. "Everyone did their
own job and everyone else's job,
too," she remarked.
Naturally, even some of our
help was home in bed, she con-
tinued. Every morning we counuted
staff heads and divided the work
up between them. Many worked
Sick-trays provided the biggest
problem, since our staff couldn't
handle the 40-odd trays going up
to the rooms without help, Mrs.
Reed said. The problem was
solved, she said, by having room-
mates or friends cut into the reg-
ular lines, get the tray, and carry
it up to the rooms.
"It was amazing that we didn't
even have to change our menus,
she commented. All that was
necessary was good planning and
a few more soups and juices.
Betty Carlson, Couzens' only
nurse, said that to her the flu bug
brought little sleep and worry of

"flunking out" of the University.
Being a full time student and also
having the job of keeping about
560 girls healthy is really impos-
sible during an epidemic, she said.
"But, thank goodness, we don't
have them every day!"

During the peak a week arid a

she was taking temperatures and
giving aspirins to around 35 girls.
Working toward her B.S. in

virtually forgotten at this time.
