MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS RESEARCH:
University Coed's Death Spurs Drive

C.,,

When a mysterious disease took
the life of Audrey Crawford, a
University coed, last fall, everyone
who knew her was stunned.
Only five weeks before her
death, Miss Crawford had com-
pleined to her Alpha Omicron Pi
sorority sisters of a numbing sen-
sation in her right arm. When she
died in University Hospital, the
diagnosis was multiple sclerosis,
with complications.
* * *
ALTHOUGH the disease itself
may not be fatal, and it is a
baffling but unfortunately

common affliction, it may lead to
other conditions which will take
the life of its victim.
It is this uncertainty regard-
ing multiple sclerosis which
makes it so dangerous. It may
last for months or years and,
may strike again in the same
place. Worst of all, however,
there is no known cure that is
dependable for all cases of the
disease.
For these reasons, the members
of Alpha Omicron Pi gathered a
fund at the end of the school year
which they designated as a sort

Bradley Says' Pay Increase
Will Be Neutralized by Taxes

WASHINGTON. -(P)-General
Omar Bradley argued today that
nearly two-thirds of the proposed
$302,000,000 in pay increases for
the Armed Services will go back to
the Federal Treasury in income
taxes.
The Army Chief of Staff spoke
of the present pay system, which
dates back to 1908, as a relic of
Hillel Plans Open
House for Sunday
Outdoor games, horseshoes, and
dancing will be featured at Hillel's
informal open house, 7 to 10:30
p.m. Sunday. ,
An open house will be held every
Sunday evening at the Founda-
tion.
* * *
ALTHOUGH Hillel will offer no
organized program for the sum-
mer, Fay Goldberg, administrative
secretary, urged students to avail
themselves of the Foundation's
record collection, library, ping
pong table, croquet court, and
horseshoe pit.

the "horse trolley" and "gas light"

HE TOLD the Senate Armed
Services Committee that the Army,
Navy and Air Force must have
career incentives to attract future
leaders.
Here is the way he figured
the $302,000,000 pay boost, al-
ready approved by the House,
would really cost the govern-
ment only $107,000,000 a year
net:
1. The Treasury would recap-
ture $65,000,000 directly inthe
form of additional income taxes
on the pay boost.
2. No attempt is made in the
bill to restore the special military
exemption of $1,500 on income
taxes. This, he said, would mean
$130,000,000 more for the Treasury
every year.
* * *
THE SPECIAL military exemp-
tion expired last January 1.
Chairman Tydings (Dem.-Md.)
said the committee will consider
the pay bill at closed door sessions
next week.

of memorial for Audrey Crawford.
A sum totalling about $100 was
sent to the National Society for
Prevention of Multiple Sclerosis
during graduation week.
** *
THE ORGANIZATION is en-
gaged in research regarding both
the causes and cure of the dis-
ease. It is very important work
because nobody can be sure where
or when the disease will strike.
Certainly Miss Crawford was
not sickly in any way. She was
20 at the time of her death, a
normal senior student in the
University, working for her de-
gree in dental hygiene. She was
active in college life, studying
hard and dating a good deal.
The fact that a healthy, normal
young girl was hit by the disease
was shocking to her many friends.
Practically every test doctors made
trying to determine what was the
matter proved negative. Meanwhile
the numbness spread, affecting her
arms especially.
** *
MISS CRAWFORD was told
that she might be many months
convalescing. As the symptoms
grew in intensity, doctors began
to suspect that the condition was
partially caused by multiple
sclerosis. Then one morning in No-
vember, she suffered a paralytic
attack which killed her.
Although her illness and
death were a tragedy to all who
knew her, and distressed many
who merely heard about it, it
had the same effect as many
other tragedies have. When a
school dormitory burned, other
dormitories throughout the
country set up extra fire pre-
cautions to prevent another
such situation.
With the hope of helping to
prevent another such case by con-
tributing whatever they could, the
Alpha Omicron Pi sorority has
aroused interest. Perhaps this will
eventually lead to the cure of
multiple sclerosis.

Buying a television set can
change your life.
The fabulous viewer has
changed the appearance of users
homes until little of the original
house looks familiar. Veritable for-
ests of weird-looking TV aerials
dot rooftops - but the main
changes are found inside the
houses.
WHOLE LIVING ROOMS have
been re-arranged, basements
transformed, and seldom - used
rooms redecorated in an attempt
to find a suitable location f or the
object.
Many fans must build entire
new rooms around the receiver,
while other users report minor
difficulties in its placement.
In other cases, conversion of
the basement into a recreation-
television room has provided the
answer because of the modest cost.
PEOPLE HAVE FOUND sun-
rooms well suited to the less ex-
pensive small sets. Pull drapes
adapt the rooms for daytime tele-
vision.
Visibility from practically any
point in the room is basic con-
sideration for a living room loca-
tion.
