Safety Precautions Can
Prevent Polio Epideniies
Educators Still Fighting
For Academic Freedom
DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
Summer months are danger
months when infantile paralysis
lurks in every corner ready to
.break out in severe epidemics.
But epidemics can be prevented
or danger reduced if people heed
precautionary rules for themselves
Teachers and others not con-
centrating in speech will learn
how to produce shows from a new
course being offered this summer
by the speech department.
Teachers' Workshop in Drama-
tics has no prerequisites.

APPLICATIONS for the course,
which is limited to 30 students,
may be made to the speech de-
In order to give students ex-
perience in all phases of play

costumers and stage techni-

be selected from members of
the class wherever possible.
The class will select a play and
then proceed to stage it at the

THE RULES CAN be easily fol-
lowed and will not interrupt work
or play duirng the summer.
Crowds bring close contact, so
head for the wide-open spaces
as much as possible.
Playing or working too hard
and too long bring much-to-be-
avoided over-fatigue, which raises
susceptibility to all kinds of germs
NOBODY LIKES to swim in
polluted water though they do it
all the time, but for self-preserva-
tion, confine beach sports to the
bathtub when there is no other
water to be had.
Sudden chills are as bad as
overfatigue, and summer weath-
er is noted for its fickleness.
And, as in any country and any
climate, food tastes better when
not left to the ants and flies.

EARLY diagnosis and prompt
treatment is the worst enemy of
any disease, and in the case of
polio such treatment often pre-
vents serious crippling.
Symptoms include headache,
nausea or upset stomach, stiff or
sore muscles and unexplained
In cases of excessive cost of
treatment, the local chapter of
the National Foundation will foot
the part of the bill that the pa-

Ober criticized hiring of Com-
munist teachers. "Most of the
damage from (Communist )
teachers is done outside the
classroom, made possible by the
influence gained in the class-
room-with prestige as a pro-
fessor," he said.
"The test of a professor's ac-
tions ought not to be whether he
can be actually proved guilty of a
crime. Reasonable grounds to
doubt his loyalty to our govern-
ment should disqualify him ."
