Dicumarol Shows Little
Pill Can Have Big Effect


A tiny pill has been the sole ob-
ject of two years of study by doc-
tors at the University Hospital.
But that pill is a new and ef-
fective blood clot preventative,
which is saving the lives of manyI
patients after operations and
Called dicumarol, the aid has
been under study by medical men
all over the country, and is now
produced synthetically by com-
mercialfirms. A group of doctors
fat the University .Hospital, who
studied its results over a two year
period, report generally good re-
Most of Bogus
Dollrs Come
From Europe
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7.--(P)--_
More than two-thirds of the
$3,094,000 in counterfeit American
money seized in the last year was
made in Europe, the Secret Service
reported today.
It was the biggest volume of
seizures since the service was cre-
ated in 1865. ,
James J. Maloney, Chief of the
Secret Service, said in a report to.
Treasury Secretary Snyder that
over two-thirds of the imitation
currency was grabbed at Mar-
sailles, France. The report covers
the 12 months ended last June 30.
Check Thefts
But Maloney reported that "by
far the greatest enforcement prob-
lem" now is the theft and forgery
of government checks-mostly tax
refunds-and savings bonds. More
than 32,000 forged checks and
11,000 forged bonds were received
for investigation.
The millions of taxpayers who
expect refunds, and those who reg-
ularly receive government checks
for other purposes, were urged to
watch their mail boxes carefully.
Merchants were asked to de-
mand positive identification be-
ore cashing checks.
Chicago Case
The Secret Service arrested
2,278 persons in the year, includ-
ing 1,964 for check and bond for-
gery and 158 for counterfeiting.
The biggest domestic case of the
year ended on June 2, when a Fed-
eral court gave two-year to ten-
year sentences to seven members
of a Chicago gang which had
manufactured more than $500,000
imn spurus. $5; $10,, $20 and $54.
bills., Some $365,000 was seized;
the rest had been burned.

sults in the 275 cases in which it
was used.
Lessens Clotting
"Dicumarol lessens the body's
capacity to manufacture pro-
thrombin, one of the components
of the clotting mechanism," Dr.
Ivan F. Duff, assistant professor
of internal medicine, explained.
"It is, therefore, used in cases
where we want to prevent the for-
mation of blood clots. Since di-
cumarol does not take effect until
36 to 48 hours after it has been
given, we sometimes use another
drug, heparin, with it."
Most patients treated with the
drugs were suffering from venous
thrombosis, which is primarily the
developmenthof soft, easily dis-
lodged clots in the large blood ves-
sels of the legs.
Feared Trouble
"This is one of the feared com-
plications after major operations
and can happen after childbirth,"
according to Dr. Robert W. Bux-
ton, assistant professor of surgery.
"People with some types of serious
heart disease and patients who
have been bedridden for a long
time are also subject to this con-
Coronary thrombosis has also
been successfully treated with the
new drug. In addition, a number
of patients at University Hospital
were given heparin and dicumarol
as a preventative measure. This
group included women who had
undergone major pelvic opera-
tions and patients who, in former
illnesses, had blood clot compli-
Discovered in Clover
One of the great dangers of a
clot forming within a blood vessel
is that the clot will break off and
be carried to the lungs. If it is
large enough it may cut off circu-
lation in a large part of the lung
and produce extensive damage
which not uncommonly causes
death. .
Dicumarol was discovered in
spoiled sweet clover when cows,
who had eaten it, bled profusely
after being caught on barbed wire.
In 1941; the active hemorrhagic
agent was obtained from the clo-
ver by Prof. Karl Paul Link and
his associates at the Wisconsin
Agricultural Experiment Station
at the University of Wisconsin.
Ashram at Interlochen

dent Association of America's an-

Music Camp, Interlochen.

Navy To Build
Giant Carrier
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7-(/P)-
The United States Navy an-
nounced tonight that construction
will get under way soon on its
$100,000,000 giant flush-deck air-
craft carrier.
The carrier will be the largest
ship afloat, a Navy spokesman
said, with a water line length of
more than 1,000 feet, and a beam,
or width,'of 130 feet. That will be
20 feet wider than the Panama
Canal locks.
The huge vessel will be con-
structed by the Newport News
Shipbuilding and Drydock Com-
pany, Newport News, Va. The job
is expected to take two years.
With a speed of approximately
36 knots, the ship will have no is-
land on the deck, such as carriers;
now have. The additional space
will be used in handing larger,
carrier bombers now being con-

offer valuable information to the
students, but also the discussions
between the students themselves.
The most popular topic is, of
course, the Marshall Plan, and it
must be admitted that many ofI
these European students fear the
Plan almost as much as they wel-
come it.
They fear the economic domi-
nation of Europe by the United
States, they wonder what changes
in the Plan may be brought about
by a Republican administration,
and they speculate on their for-
tunes under the Plan in the event
of another 1929 in this country.
The Michigan Union also make
note of the "Uni-Bar" at the Uni-
versity of Zurich, where one may
purchase a hot dinner complete
for 50 cents, a glass of milk for
six cents, and the equivalent to a
whole Union pie for 20 cents.
The tables are so arranged that
one may eat while seated on a
balcony overlooking the. interior
of the University's beautiful mu-
seum of ancient and Classical
sculpture-evidence of the Swiss
belief that education should not
even take a back seat to life's lit-
tle necessities.
Wine-Drinking Tour
The Summer School is also
sponsoring tours to all parts of
Switzerland, where the students
will have an opportunity to study
various features of the country,
such as its government, its indus-
try, and its culture. One such
tour took us to Zollikon, a suburb
of Zurich, where we had a chance
to observe elements of Swiss city
To make sure that the students
never forget the little village of
Zollikon, the mayor treated the
entire group, about 100 students,
to a banquet at which gallons of
Swiss wine were consumed in
toasting the city, the University,
and each country represented by
the students gathered there. The
Student Legislature might vAell
consider approaching the Ann
Arbor City Council on the educa-
tional features of such tours.

The dollars in your pocket de-
termine the class of music you
prefer, according to a University
of Indiana sociologist, the Indiana
Daily Student reports.
"Classical and light-classical
music has the greatest appeal for
higher classes in the social-eco-
nomic scale, while jazz and hill-
billy music appeals more to lower
classes," the sociologist said in a
recent lecture.

The married vet studying in a
trailer complete with running
children is a better scholastic
bet then the easy-going very-
bachelor undergraduate male,
at the University of Wisconsin,
according to the Daily Cardinal.
The trailer vets averaged 1.79,
all students averaged 1.61 and
undergrads 1.67, in a detailed
study of university staitistics.

for each mark than at Univer-

The flying disk mania recently
hit the University of Illinois with
reports that "Buck Rogers ships"
have been sighted, according to
the Daily Illini.
Quizzing every localite that
knew anything about aviation, the
Illini drew comments like: "Hallu-
cinations," "Possible," "Eyes play-
ing tricks," and "People are just
looking for something to talk
They called last year's flying
disks a "hoax."}

Students earning money as ice-
men at Michigan State College
have "extra-curricular activities,"
the Michigan State News- reveals.
The ice crew, which numbers
five, often gets stuck to feed the
baby or move the piano for young
student wives.
One even reported that he was

ordered to close his eyes before
entering a trailer with a load of
ice. Doing as he was told, the
unsuspecting iceman got inside to
find a lady in distress with a
zipper on the back of her dress.
After chunking the ice into the
icebox, he zipped it closed, took
his change and went on to see
what adventure waited at the next

Library Science
Program Changed
Several changes in the fall se-
mester curriculum of the Depart-
ment of Library Science were an-
nounced yesterday.
Beginning next semester, nearly
all of the professional course work
in library science will be per-

ing to an A.B. in library science
will be discontinued. Students in
the future will matriculate as can-
didates for M.A. degrees in library
For admission to the graduate
program students must have a
high scholastic average, a balanced
program of liberal arts subjects
and a reading knowledge of
French or German.
Televised Operas
