Physiologist
Discusses
Space Trips
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (P3) -
If you are worried about your first
trip to the moon don't - you
won't even feel it until you're
there.
The only time you may realize
you are on a journey is at the
moment the space ship leaves earth
and the moment it lands where-
soever you are going. In between
there'll be no noise or vibration.
Plant Life Necessary
Don't be surprised if your cabin
is full of such things as seaweed
or other marine plane life. That's
just to keep you alive.
These were some of the aspects
of future space travel presented
recently by Fred A. Hitchcock,
director of the laboratory of avia-
tion physiology at Ohio State Uni-
versity. Hitchcock has been direc-
tor since 1941 of the laboratory,
whose research aids the U. S. Air
Force.
Hitchcock was not present but
his paper was read to the delegates
of the Sixth International Astro-
nautical Congress.
In it Hitchcock said there were
still some medical problems to be
solved before man can journey in
outer space.
None Insurmountable
But he added: " . . . While
there are many psysiological prob-
lems in relation to space flight still
to be solved, nevertheless in the
light of current investigations none
of these seems to be insurmount-
able."
Looking into the future, Hitch-
cock said: "One of the minor al-
though increasingly important
stresses in conventional aircraft
is noise and vibration. These
would be completely eliminated in
space travel except during take
off and landing."
Hitchcock said one of the most
important things was to find a
way to air condition the space
ship's sealed cabin during flight.
"We- should begin investigations
of the biological method of air-
conditioning sealed cabins," he
commented.
"This method would consist of
the establishment of a balance
between some form of plant life
and the human occupants of the
sealed cabin." he explained.
"It seems likely that the plants
to be used under such conditions
would be some species of algae.
Investigation of the possibility of
using such organism to furnish
oxygen and absorb dioxide through
their food producing process in
sealed cabins is already being
carried on in the United States,"
Hitchcock concluded.

Washtenaw county will join with
five others in an intensive search

Washtenaw county in October, will
cover Macomb, Monroe, Oakland,
St. Clair and Wayne counties.
II DAILY '

OFFICIAL
BULLETIN

Dr. Albert E. Heustis, State
Health Commissioner, said the six
county area had 4,403 new cases
of TB last year, more than three-
fourths of the cases reported in
the state.
State and local health depart-
ments, medical societies, TV asso-
ciations and local groups will sup-
port the campaign, designated as
the Detroit-Southeastern Michigan
Case Finding Project.
Four Department of Health X-
ray cruisers will operate in the
drive. Added units will be pro-
vided by the counties. Dr. Heustis
said the X-raying will be con-
centrated in high incident belts.
"This is a departure from the
method used in the last few years,"
the commissioner reported. "In
this survey, instead of attempting
to get high coverage of any single
county, we hope to get 100 per
cent participation in those neigh-
borhoods where the tuberculosis
attack rate has been up."
The regional survey, Dr. Heus-
tis said, is another effort of
health authorities to pin down
cases of tuberculosis in earlier
stage before the disease germs have
been passed around to others.
