cause the tissue parasites die
spontaneously in a few weeks.
Few of the returned veterans have
this form of illness.
"The patient may fall into a
coma, or contract a type of dysen-
tery, The infected red blood cells
appear to be sticky. Fatalities
occur because circulation to the
brain is damaged," Dr. Porter
He pointed out that there is
no need .for any patient to die of
malaria because modern drugs are
very quick and effective.
People do not contract malaria
from each other. "We catch it
only by being bitten by the par-
ticular mosquito carrying the tiny
parasite that invades the human
blood stream," he commented.
Malignant spreading mosquitos
breed in the Mississippi Valley,
across the Gulf coast to northern
Florida and southern Georgia.
They are found across the whole
of the eastern coast in diminish-
ing numbers.
Early settlers in Michigan were
subject to malaria, but breeding
places have been cleaned out.
Tippling and recovery from ma-
laria do not go together. "There
is some evidence that alcohol de-
creases the effectiveness of our
parasite-destroying tissue cells,"
Dr. Porter advised.

The heat was on at other cam-
puses last week. At the University
of Indiana, the thermometer read
99 degrees one day. The Indiana
Daily Student reported the Union

Approximately 4,000 bottles of
coke were used a day during the

cool drinks reported.
Hundreds of lemonade stands
sprang up around the campus.
Carl Sandburg, the Lincoln ex-

that Lincoln's tolerance and pa-

Temperatures of 101 degrees
greeted students registering for
the fall at the University of Min-
nesota. Registration began Aug. 5
and will continue to September 26.
It is estimated that the school
will have an enrollment of 29,000
next semester.
Although over 10,000 students
registered the first day, the re-
corder said there was no hurry.
"Each student will get the courses
he wants," he said.

At the University of Illinois,
Robb Wilson, aviation editor of
the New York Herald Tribune, said
that nowhere had he seen aero-
nautics so closely integrated in a
training institute as at the Uni-
versity of Illinois.

He spoke at the second annual
convention of the Flying Farmers
of Prairie Farmland.
Gov. Dwight H. Green gave the

At Ohio State University, a com-

the director of ticket sales, as the

main, and few of them, he added.
An Ohio State socialist, Richard

Dutch Settlers
Will Migrate
To Michigan
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Aug. 9
--(k-Imbued with the same
hopes that spurred on the pioneer-
ing Van Raalte group to settle
in western Michigan and found
the city of Holland 100 years ago,
24 native Dutch settlers will ar-
rive here under vastly changed
Their travel route from the
Netherlands will occupy only 26
hours as compared with the three
months arduous journey made by
the Van Raalte colonizing group.
They are to reach here Tues-
day aboard the Royal Dutch Air-
lines Constellation plane, accom-
panied by Dr. Felco Van Keffens,
Netherlands ambassador at Wash-
ington. The event will inaugurate
the Holland centennial.
Of the three families compris-
ing the group, two will settle in
Grand Rapids and the other in
Muskegon. . All are seeking rela-
tives who have been here for
many.: years. The immigrants are
from Groningen.
The early morning fog hanging
over dough-nuts and coffee cups
has been noticeably thickened re-
cently by the gloomy prospect of
final exams.
After a long seige of midnight-
oil burning, the discouraged voice
of one over-burdened science stu-
dent cut through this fog the oth-
er day with the remark, "I don't
know enough about this stuff to
ask questions, let alone answers."
As he pushed his way wearily to
the door he was heard to mutter,
"I hope I make a D on the final-
I've just got to raise my mark."
