Connally Outlines Seven Point
Program for Enduring Peace

THEY REPAIR BRAIN DAMAGE:
Clinic Helps Veterans Regain Lost Speech

WASHINGTON, July 19--P)-Sen-
ator Tom Connally (Dem., Tex.) held
out hope today to Germany and
Austria for a "real and enduring
peace" inrwhichrtheirnpeoples will
have the opportunity "to rebuild their
shattered fortunes and to restore
their economy."
The Chairman of the Foreign Re-
lations Committee told the Senate in
a review of the Paris Conference that
while "the Council of Foreign Mini-

Of Pharmacists
Addressing 140 hospital pharma-
cists from all over the country on
the closing day of the Institute on
Hospital Pharmacy, Dr. Albert C.
Kerlikowske, director of the Univer-!
Eity Hospital, cited the various valu-
able services of that group.
Hospital pharmacists can be ex-
ceedingly valuable in hospital opera-
tion by instructing nurses, interns
and staff physicians in such things
as pharmacology and prescription
writing, he said.
"A good pharmacist will be just a
step ahead of the physician as to
the knowledge of any new drug," Dr.
Kerlikowske declared. "In addition
to his function of supplying the so-
called routine medication, the better
hospital pharmacist will know the
source of any drug that might be
used as an emergency."
He pointed out that the pharmacy
department aids the medical staff
by preparing special medications for
research and also provides instruction
in materia medica and pharmacology
for student nurses.
"It has been our experience," Dr.
Kerlikowske explained, "that the
young man out of medical school does
not know much about writing pre-
scriptions." Here again the hospital
pharmacist can be "valuable" in giv-
ing a course in prescription writing
along with some good instructions
on certain medications and drugs,
their properties, preparations, action
and uses.
The Institute was the first of its
kind ever to be held. It extended over
a five day period ending yesterday.
Speakers from the University and
other hospitals participated.

sters has travelled a hard road," the
American delegation "this time did
not come home empty-handed" from
the negotiations with Britain, Russia
and France.
Skirted Edges of Problem
Conceding that the Paris states-
men thus far have "merely skirted
the edges of Europe's peace problem,"
Connally declared that the calling of
a 21-nation peace conference for
July 29 on five proposed treaties was
an "outstanding achievement."
The United States will oppose there
and elsewhere, he said, any "cruel
and brutal terms of peace," but will
insist upon "terms that shall mean
real and enduring peace and the
extirpation of armed aggression."
Seven Point Program
As a means of demonstrating that
this country stands "wholeheartedly
back of the United Nations Charter,"
he suggested the following seven-
point course:
1. " In our dealings with other
nations we must stand firmly on
those principles of law and justice
expressed in the charter. We should
expect other nations to do the same."
2. "We should unhesitatingly make
available to the Security Council our
full quota of the troops, planes and
ships necessary for the maintenance
of world peace.''
Maintain Strong Army
3. "We must maintain a strong
Army, Navy and Air Force so that
we may protect our land and our
people and fulfill our obligations un-
der the Charter."
4. "We must put into treaty form
the inter-American machinery con-
templated in the act of Chapultepec
and make it one of the permanent
pillars in the temple of peace built
at San Francisco."
5. "We should accept the compul-
sory jurisdiction of the International
Court of Justice over those strictly
legal disputes which affect the Uni-
ted States and any other state which
has accepted the compulsory juris-
diction of the court."
Secure Agreement
6. "We should do our utmost to se-
cure at the earliest practicable time;
complete agreement with respect to
the control of atomic energy and
other weapons of mass destruction."
7. "We should lend our full support
to the economic, social and humani-
tarian program of the United Nations
and thus help establish those condi-
tions in the world which are essential
for enduring peace."

Some Complete Recoveries
Case histories at the clinic reveal
a few complete recoveries. Some of
the veterans have enrolled in school,
others are now at work earning their

The treatment is further evidence
of efforts to attempt to offset the
damage done by war. After the first
world war, such assistance for the
veteran was not believed possible.

HARVARD DETHRONED:
Adams Cites Santo Domirtyo
As .First American University

By LIDA DAILES
The University of Santo Domingo
is Michigan's candidate at the mo-
ment for the title of the "First
American University," Dr. Randolph
G. Adams, Director of the Clements
Library of American History, said
in a Daily interview.
Harvard, traditionally considered
the first American university by those
who forget that, the Latin Americans
are "American," fades into fifth place
in the exhibit "Early American Col-
leges and Universities" now on dis-
play at the Clements Library.
Spanish Work
The University of Santo Domingo
earns its title by virtue of a work
in Spanish, Diego de la Maza's
"Memorial" to the Council of the
Indies which contains a Papal Bull
of Pope Paul III raising the rank of
a Dominican convent school to the
"Universidad de Santo Dimingo" in
1538. The document, now in the pos-
session of the Clements Library and
believed to be the only copy in the
United States, seems to rule out all
competitors in this "game of priori-
ties" as to the first "American Uni-
versity." But the Clements Library
still proposes to devote a good deal
more study to it, Dr. Adams said.
Of special interest to the Michigan
man is the display of the "Religious
Constitutions of Colleges, Especially
of Yale" which includes regulations
forbidding the students to assault the
presidents of the college. In addition,
one of the rules compels the students
to buy their beer from the college
"butler" .'. . a rule which would be
popular at the Union-if one existed.
Origin of Names
The origin of the names bestowed
upon our American universities pre-
sents speculations censored only by
the presence of the. donors' descend-
ents. One "College at Cambridge"

received its present name upon the
donation of 400 volumes and -800
pounds by John Harvard. The be-
quest exceeded the donations up to
that date by such a sum, that the
"College at Cambridge" became Har-
vard University.
Not far away, nor so different in
the manner of Christening was the
"College at New Haven," more famil-
iarly known as Yale University. Yale
received its present name when Eli-
hu Yale sent the school three bales
of goods, books and a portrait of
George the First. In 1938, when
Harvard celebrated its Third Centen-
nial Anniversary, not one of John
Harvard's 400 books could be found.
One wonders what was the fate of
Yale's portrait of George the First.
Guest Pianist Will

Lee Pattison, guest pianist and lec-
turer in the School of Music for

This week's program in the "Sur-
vey of Piano Literature" series is

tasie, Op. 17, and Brahms' Piano
