New School Health Program Planned

Adlai's Views Not To Be
Pressed on Draft Group


A' new departure in medical
health supervision of school chil-
dren is about to take place in Ann
.The Aim Arbor Board, of Edu-
cation at their meeting last night
approved the appointment of Dr.
Teresa Woo, in cooperation with
the University School of Public
Health, to a position involving
new areas of responsibilities in the
field of school health.
Dr. Woo will be responsible for
planning and implementing a new
type of school health program in
Ann Arbor, and will spend about
one-third of her time of the staff
of the newly created Department
'of Maternal and Child Health in
U n i v e r s i t y School of Public
Health. Dr. Donald C. Smith is di-
rector of this new program.
Broader Scope
Dr. Woo will be primarily re-
sponsible for supervising the med-
ical staff of the school system, the
medical doctors of which are pres-
ently provided under an arrange-
ment with the University Depart-
.ment of Pediatrics.
It is hoped by school board of-
ficials that the plan will develop
into covering a much broader
scope than it now does, and will
give Ann Arbor! school children

the finest health supervision
According to Jack Elzay, super-
intendent of Ann Arbor's Board
of Education, "Health Education
has been one of the most neglected
areas of fundamental education in
the United States. Some school
systems have done a fine job of
trying to rectify this condition. In
many places, however, school

cation have, been 'assumed'. We
believe there is nothing more fun-
"If our program is going to de-,
velop the way we want it to, it
will take careful planning, effi-
cient utilization of those plans,e
and constant review of how we;
are doing. The plan's success will
depend on the fullest cooperation
of all concerned.J
"We are particularly fortunate
in having the cooperation of the
University's School of Public
Health," he added.
Dean Henry F. Vaughn, of Uni-
versity School of Public Health
stated that "the University is par-
ticularly pleased to be cooperating
with the Ann Arbor Board of Edu-
cation on this project. Dr. Woo isI
truly one of the foremost pediatri-
cians in the field of Public Health,
and we are delighted to have her
on our staff.
"Under the new program of Ma-
ternal and Child Health, Dr. Uoo
will be assisting in the training of
nurses and doctors in the field of
school health services. Their work
with the school children of Ann
Arbor will be invaluable to them9
and a service to the schools.
"This is the first itme this op-l
portunity has arisen for a School
of Public Health and a city. TheI
new plan is similar to the very
successful cooperative plan pres-
ently being carried out between
the School of Public Health and
the Washtenaw County Health
Department under the direction of
Dr. Otto Engelke. We hope the
new arrangement will develop as
a full time part of our maternal
and child health program."
Dr. Woo is highly qualified for
her new posts, and is no strangerI
to Ann Arbor. She received her
M.D. degree at the University's
Medical School in 1934. From here
she went to Harvard University
where she receive dher Master's
Degree in Public Health.
Her pediatric training came
while a resident at Children's
Memorial Hospital in Chicago,
and the Presbyterian Hospital in;
New York City. During World War
II she served as a major in the
U. S. Army Medical Corps.
Following her discharge from
the service, she gained valuable1
public health experience both in
the District of Columbia, and the
Territory of Hawaii Health De-
partments. Dr. Woo is a diplomat
of the American Board of Pedi-
atrics. )
She will begin her new duties
on August 15 with the Ann Arbor
Board of Education.
University Regents will take
formal action on her appointment
in the new maternal and child
health program at their Septem-
ber meeting.
Break Ground
MONROE, Mich. (P) - Despite
criticism from some government
quarters, ground was broken today
for construction of the world'sl
first privately owned atomic "fast1
breeder" type power plant.
The 54,000,000 experiment is be-
ing conducted by a group of 17
utility and manufacturing enter-,i
prises called the Power Reactor ,
Development Co.
The plant will be named after
Dr. Enrico Fermi, famed Italian-:
American physicist who first ex-
perimented in the use of the atom4
as a peaceful source of energy.

But improvement of the Steven-

A top maker of that strategy,
Hyman Raskin, was quoted at

Finnegan told reporters he does
not think the statement had ac-
counted for any new Stevenson
delegate strength.
Another top Stevenson aide pre-
dicted to The Daily that the candi-
dates views on the platform are
not going to be pressed on the
drafting committee. And he em-
phasized that Stevenson made the
remarks "while getting into his
car," and added that he didn't see
any break with past positions on
the segregation issue.
Accepting the spontaneity of
the statement, the motivation be-
hind it remains a mystery. How-
ever, Stevenson's main concern in
recent weeks-in addition to the
choice of a running mate - is
known to have been the antici-
pated election contest with Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Perhaps he reasoned that some
indication of his strong belief in
civil rights was necessary if the
Democrats are going to carry more
