Furstenberg Warns Of Dangers
Of Toreign Bodies In Larynx'

First U.S. Panzer-Type Army Division Celebrates Birthday In Creek Bed

An appeal to everyone to be aware
of the dangers and serious complica-
tions brought on by the accidental
aspiration of a foreign body into the
respiratory system, and to seek
promptly the services of a physician
climaxed a lecture on "Foreign Bodies
in the Larynx" given yesterday in
the Rackham Building by Dean Al-
bert Furstenberg of the medical
Dr. Furstenberg, in telling of the
dangers of such an accident, cited a
case printed in a newspaper recently
of a three-year-old boy who died after
physicians tried for eight hours to
remove a peanut which had lodged in
the respiratory system.-
Conditions under which such an
accident may occur are numerous.
Children, he said, put objects in their
mouths to test them. Fits of passion,
unconscious states and acts of
coughing, laughing or crying in chil-
dren and adults alike cause a violent
drawing in of the breath which may
suck the foreign body deeply into the
air passages of the lungs.
Most numerous of the cases, Dr.
Furstenberg asserted, are those caused
French Club'
To Hear Talk
Mrs. Vibbert Is Scheduled
To Speak At 8 P.M.
Mrs. Charles B. Vibbert, wife. of
Professor Vibbert ofrthephilosophy
department, will address members of
the French Club at 8 p.m. today on
"Etapes Psychologiques en France en-
tre 1939 et 1941," at Le Foyer Fran-
cai1, 1414 Washtenaw.
With testimonies of a number of
French people as her material, Mrs.
Vibbert will !trace the recent prog'ess
of psychological development in
France. Her knowledge of these peo-.
ple comes from the fact that she her-
self is a native of the country, and
many of her relatives and friends
still live on the Continent.
French songs and other informal
entertainment will conclude the meet-

by peanuts. The mixture of the
masticated peanut with germ-laden
saliva in the lungs as an incubator,
fosters the growth of millions of bac-
teria. Thus, the physician's task is
complicated by the presence of in-
Many times the signs of foreign
body aspiration are not recognized,
he said. The initial coughing seizure
is treated by harmful slaps on the
back or insertion of a finger into
the throat of the child.
When a period of comparative com-
fort is reached, the incident is for-
gotten. This period may extend for
hours, or for years, then suddenly
there is coughing, with offensive dis-
charges from the throat and some-
times hemorrhages from the lungs.
It is the failure to recognize the
symptoms of trouble which cause
so many deaths.
When the physician removes a for-
eign body, he uses a long, illuminated
tube called a bronchoscope, which ex-
tends through the mouth into the
windpipe. After inspection the for-
eign body is grasped with a long for-
cep and passed out through the tube.
Especial care is taken in the case
of a sharp-edged or pointed object.
Recently there have been developed
methods of closing safety pins to
prevent injury to the gullet in draw-
ing them up.
"Parents," Dr. Furstenberg closed,
"should take care in straining frag-
ments of bone from food and in keep-
ing peanuts out of the hands of in-
fants and young children."

WEEK DAYS AT 2-4-7-9 P.M.


little town, clean shaven once more,
has settled down to the doldrums of
country life after three days of Cen-
tennial celebration July 3, 4 and 5.
But to one person, small, twinkling-
eyed town historian, Mrs. Flora E.
Smith, the past few weeks have
brought work recording in her own
private annals of the town the hap-
penings of that three-day period.
Years ago Mrs. Smith started what
she hoped to be an avocation, but
has turned to a vocation. She began
collecting interesting bits of infor-

Doodle" dance, on tomorrow and Sat-
urday, respectively.
First of these affairs will open at
7:30 p.m. with a watermelon cut in
the League garden, Dr. T. Luther
Purdom, director of the University
Bureau of Appointments and Occu-
pational Information, doing the slic-
ing. The big melons will be distrib-
uted among students from the South.
Southern tunes will be Clark Mc-
Clellan's specialty from 9 p.m. to 1
a.m., when he and his orchestra swing
out for the crowd of dancers expected

Pi Lambda Theta To Hold

Pi Lambda Theta, honor society for

tiation banquet at 5:30 p.m. Thurs-
day, July 24, in the Henderson Room
of the League.
Speaker for the affair will be Ofelia
Mendoza of Honduras. Dr. Evelyn

Jmation and data about Dexter's his-
Today she owns 58 scrapbooks, in
which is chronicled the history of
Dexter, its growthhand progress, and
at the same time hundreds of human-
interest items which reveal' the very
life-line of this small, sleepy little
Michigan town.
Mrs.'Smith was born at Parma, 62
years ago, on Christmas day. In 1879
the family moved to Dexter, where
the father assumed the duties of tick-
et master at the Michigan Central
Station here.
Mrs. Smith's records came in handy
here for those planning the Centen-
nial. From her scrap book came the
information necessary to plan the
,pageant of Dexter's history, and for
costuming the town inclothes of eras
gone by.
But Mrs. Smith finds more than
that to do. Being town historian, you
might say, is just a sideline. In addi-
tion to that she is village treasurer,
librarian in Dexter's small but effi-
cient library, and a part-time report-
er on this little town's weekly news-
paper, "The Dexter Leader."
