Medical Care To All Students


Unit Added Last Summer
To Equipment; Room
For 30 In The Infirmary
One oT the most complete and in-
expensive medical services offered by
any American university is provided
by the University of Michigan Health
Service, which cares for any student
illness that may arise during the se-
mester of the student's residence in
the University and takes preventive'
measures in regard to student health
in living and recreational centers.
Illness contracted by the student
during the semester in which he is
enrolled is taken care of in the Health
Service building and the University
hospital. Each students receives,
without charge, office medical care
from his physician and from the
Health Service staff of specialists.
The student is also entitled to receive#
free bed care for 30 days and emer-
gency operations without charge.
This fall, for the first time, the
health examination, which is admin-
istered to all entering students by the
Health Service, in Waterman and
Barbour gymnasiums, will include
the Kline blood test for venereal dis-
ease, according to Dr. Nelson M.
Smith, Health Service physician in
charge of the examinations. Owing
to the uncertainty of what the gen-
eral .student reaction to the tests will
be; they will be given only to the men
students this fall, with the view of ini-
tiating the tests for women at some
later date if they are well-accepted
by the men.
The University cares for any seri-
ous illness that is discovered through
the examinations, and students are
also advised as to the care of minor

addition, which adjoins the building
on the south contains three office and
examining rooms on the first and
second floors. On the third floor the
two rooms provide space for six infir-
mary beds.
One of the rooms is for men and
the other for women. The Health
Service now has room for 30 bed pa-
tients in the infirmary. Equipment
for the addition costs about $1,000.
The Health Service will be open dur-
ing Orientation Week to give medical'
Nurses are stationed in each of the
women's dormitories and men living
in dormitories and rooming houses
have the room-call services available.
Of the medical services rendered by
the University for which the student
is charged, there are the following:
extra nursing, some University hospi-
tal service, dental X-rays, physician
room-calls, non-emergency opera-
tions, health appliances and repair
and purchase of eye glasses at reduced
rates. The charge for these services
is made to defray expenses to the
University only.
The Health Service has a well-
equipped pharmacy where prescrip-
tions are filled by order of a Health
Service physician, a physio-therapy
department, optical and X-ray de-
partments, an allergy and sensitiza-
tion clinic and other facilities which
enable the Health Service to give the
student complete medical attention.
There are several new appoint-
ments to the staff of the Health Serv-
ice this year. Dr. George H. Agate will
be the class medical adviser for the
class of 1942 to replace Dr. Morris
McGarvey, who is entering private
practice in East Lansing. Dr. James
B. Lounsbury replaces Dr. Luther

ROTC Students
Become Officers
Military Members May Be
Second Lieutenants
Commissions as second lieutenants
in the Officers' Reserve Corps of the
United States await those who suc-
cessfully complete the eight semester
course in military science and tactics
in the University, under the program
of the Michigan unit of the Reserve
Officers' Training Corps.
The eight semesters are divided in-
to two sections of four each, the first
the basic group and the last the ad-
vanced group. An entire group of
four semesters must be elected at a
time, and, unless the student is for-
mally discharged, becomes a prere-
quisite for graduation upon election.
Freshmen wishing ultimate commis-
sions should enroll in the basic group
the first year of attendance in the
Physical education is not required
of men taking military science. 12
hours of academic credit may be
earned toward graduation, one hour a
semester in the basic group, two hours
a semester in the advanced group.
In addition to the eight semesters
of academic work, one summer at an
R.O.T.C. camp is required of all those
seeking commissions. Signal, infan-
try and engineers corps spend the
summer at Camp Custer, Mich., while
the Ordnance goes to the Aberdeen
Proving Ground, in Maryland. Sum-
mer work includes obtaining practical
experience with equipment, receiving
physical training and participating in
athletics. The summer camp session
is six weeks long.
Students in the advanced group re-
ceive pay from the government,
amounting to about $200 per year.
Men in the summer camp receive pay
at the rate of 70 cents a day.
Membership in the R.O.T.C. is not
considered as enlistment in any part
of the army, and carries with it no
obligation for service in the army
