Study Links
Bulbar Polio
To Tonsils
A University of Minnesota med-
ical study recently revealed that
persons who have tonsils removed
and who contact polio are four
times more likely to have bulbar
polio than patients who still have
their tonsils.
Bulbar is the most serious kind
of polio ahd usually affects the
respiratory system. Gray matter
in the brain is also often affected
by bulbar polio.
The study, made of 2,669 Minne-
sota victims, were published last
week. Specifically, the study re-
vealed that, if polio does occur,
the patient without tonsils is in
more danger of having bulbar type
than the patient with tonsils.
Less than one tenth of polio vic-
tims who still had their tonsils
suffered from bulbar polio, the
study showed. More than ond third
of those without tonsils got the
bulbar type.
The article revealing the study
findings blamed the rise in bulbar
type polio of recent years on in-
creased frequency of tonsillectom-
ies. The authors said that sufficient
indication of necessity of tonsil
removal should be given before
"It is probably that tonsillec-
tomy removes some natural bar-
rier which would have prevented
the spread of polio virus from the
throat to the nerve center, the
study said.
Three bulbar polio cases have
been reported at the University
Hospital in the last three weeks.

Leonard, a former state and De-

from his Detroit headquarters that
the bill "is just dandy if the tax-

to the average family."

Twenty-four people from eight
countries are enrolled in the Sum-
mer Institute in Survey Research
Techniques at the University Sur-
vey Research Center.
Included in the Summer Insti-
tute's course, designed to meet edu-
cational and training needs of men
and women engaged in business
and governmental research, is
Margareta Koivula, who is Assist-
ant Director of the Industrial Re-
lations Department in the employ-
er's Association of Finnish Forest
Miss Kiovula is in the United
States on a scholarship to study
research techniques. During the
regular school year she studied
and did research at the Massa-
chusetts ,Institute of Technology,
where she was the only woman in
the industrial relations division.
Purpose of Study
Explaining her specific purpose
for coming to this country and
particularly for enrolling in the
Research Center course in research
techniques, Miss Kiovula stressed
the importance of the forestry in-,
dustry in Finland. She pointed out
that 90% of Finland's exports are
wood and paper products.
"In general," she reports, "ini
Finland's industry, management
will conduct studies to improve
production, but the human rela-
tions point of view is given littlel
attention." She attributed this1

Finnish Lady Studies U.S. Research

reglect of the "human side" of
industry to the poor 'conditions of
;he country's industry and the need
to constantly increase production.
She remarked that study of hu-
man relations by industry is some-
thing quite new in Finland, but
that it is improving.
Miss Kiovula's main interest is,
to study industrial relations from
the management side in this coun-
try, so that she may use this in-
formation in her work back home.
As a result of the information
exchange students bring with them,
from the United States to Fin-
land, she observed, an interest is
developing in other aspects of in-,
dustry than just production.
Stanley Quartet
Slates Concert
The third program in the sum-
mer series of concerts by the Stan-
ley Quartet will be performed in
the Rackham Lecture Hall, at 8:30
Tuesday evening.1
The all-Beethoven program will
include the "Quartet in G major,
Op. 18, No. 2," and "Quartet in
B-flat major, Op. 130," with the
"Great Fugue, Op. 133."
The Quartet, which consists of
Gilbert Ross, first violin, Emil
Raab, second violin, Robert Courte,I
viola, and Oliver Edl, cello, plan]
to -perform the comp'ete Beet-1
hoven cycle of quartets duringI
their fall series of concerts. .

She is the first Finnish person
in the industrial relations field to
come here to study specifically
American processes in this realm
of industry.
So that she may influence the
Finnish people in progressive in-
dustrial relations techniques, Miss
Kiovula is learning American tech-
niques by direct observation of in-
dustry in this country. In addi-
tion, she is studying surveys and
findings of social scientists in this
country who have observed dif-
ferent factors in the industrial
relations field. She hopes to con-
duct studies in her own country
after she learns the survey tech-
niques developed here, and her ul-
timate goal is improvement of in-
dustrial relations, especially in the
forestry industry.
At present, there is very little
attention given to industrial re-
lations in the university and col-
lege training programs in Fin-
land, according to Miss Kiovula. At
the University of Finland in Hel-
sinki, only two faculty members
are teaching courses in this field,
in addition to several other courses
they are teaching.
Before returning to Finland next
month, Miss Kiovula will tour sev-
eral more American industrial
plants. Then she will fly back to
her native land where she intends
to "try to get a center started
where research studies of Finnish
industry can be conducted."

Ford Museum
Posters, Tank
The Henry Ford Museum at
Greenfield Village will commem-
orate the 40th anniversary of the
beginning of the World War I
struggle for the rights of free men
by displaying an extensive collec-
tion of war posters representing
most of the nations engaged in
that conflict.
Many of the posters are import-
ant contributions to the field of
art, and all express the sentiments
of the day. Works of outstanding
artists, including Charles Dana
Gibson, Howard Chandler Christy
and James Montgomery Flagg,
will be on display, along with some
excellent examples of French color
Another phase of the exhibit will
be the makeshift tank in which
eight Czechs, led by Vaclav Uhlik,
escaped from behind the Iron Cur-

now on permanent display at the
Museum, toured the country dur-

with the Crusade for Freedom Con-
