Pregnancy Poisoning Test
Developed by_'U' Doctor
A University doctor has develop-
ed a test that may show in advance
which pregnant women are most
susceptible to pregnancy poisoning.
Dr. Tommy N. Evans of the
University Women's Hospital re-
ports in the current issue of the
American Journal of Obstetrics
and Gynecology on a test that
measures the ability of the kidneys
to act as filtering agents.
Often in cases of toxic pregnan-
cies, the filtering mechanism
breaks down. Sometimes it fails
Because the hourly urine test
is subject to gross errors as a sole
means of detecting a toxic preg-
nancy, Dr. Evans added blood

studies. What the doctor looked for
both in the urine and the blood
was creatinine, a chemical which
plays a role in muscle contraction
Although not new itself, it is
believed that this is the first time
the creatinine test has been ap-
plied to toxic pregnancies.
Dr. Evans, using both normal
and toxic pregnant women as his
subjects, found that the two groups
of expectant women differed sub-
stantially in amounts of creatinine
He also found that the differ-
ences paralleled the severity or
extent of poisoning during preg-
According to Dr. Evans, the test
may have special value for preg-
nant women who suffer from dia-
betes, high blood pressure, or kid-
ney ailments. They are especially
susceptible to pregnancy poison-
ing. Applied to this group, the
test may reveal sufficient evidence
of poison and thereby help /the
physician decide whether to inter-
rupt the pregnancy.
'acial differences can be de-
tected chemically. Two University
scientists at the Institute of Hu-
man Biology have discovered sub-
stantial chemical differences be-
tween the Chinese and the Euro-
pean. The chemical difference has
been detected in urine samples
studied by the two investigators.
Classified according to racial
type, according to a report by H.
Eldon Sutton and Philip J. Clark,
the Chinese differ in a "highly
significant" manner chemically
from Caucasians. The key to the
classification is the amino acid, a
complicated chemical which con-
tributes to the production of body
The authors of the report ex-
plain that although eating and
environment play substantial roles
in, the production of amino acids,
some bio-chemical differences are
basically hereditary. But science,
long puzzled over the influence of
genetics, has not had an easy time
because the line between environ-
ment and heredity is a thin one.
Marshall Tests Handbill Rule
A B L 0 0 M I N G B U S I N E S S - Holland children thread strings of daffodils which
their parents sell to spring tourists. On their heads are finished wreaths ready for market.
Ann Arbor's ordinance against
littering streets with handbills is
apparently undergoingan acid test
during the current Bargain Days.
When Police ordered Robert
Marshall to desist in distributing
leaflets advertising his bookstore
because it violated the ordinance,
Faced with arrest, Marshall said
he would pick up any leaflets
dropped on the city streets, the
department reported. Officers said
such permission was impossible.
However, Assistant City Attorney
Jacob Fahrner, Jr., told police a
warrant was not appropriate in
this case as "only a few" of the
leaflets appeared to be littering the
streets after distribution to shop-
Police have interpreted the ordi-
nance as specifically forbidding the
circulation of handbills.
The ordinance reads, "No person
shall scatter, place or throw any
bills, leaflets, pamphlets or other
advertising matter on the surface
of any of the public streets, alleys,
or on public grounds of the city,
nor in the yard of private resi-
dents, nor in parked vehicles, nor
cause the same to be done by
