By MICHAEL BURNS
University Health Service has
been serving the students and
faculty of Michigan for 46 years.
Providing basic clinical services
and a number of specialty clinics,
including mental hygiene, the Ser-.
vice is well equipped to handle all
types of cases except those re-
quiring major surgery or special
Health Service ?ias a complete
laboratory where all the clinical
tests are run. The Service owns an
electrocardiograph, a complete
laboratory for blood tests, instru-
ments for making basal metabolic
determinations, and physio-thera-
py equipment. Emergency dental
facilities and a diagnostic x-ray
department are also a part of the
Has Own Pharmacy
Health Service has its own phar-
macy and many qf the drugs used
are manufactured there. Accord-
ing to Dr. Morley Beckett, direc-
tor o'f Health Service, one of the
finest college or university allergy'
clinics is located in Health Service.
Allergens are individually pre-
pared in their own laboratories.
Examinations and normal drugs
are free to all students taking
four hqurs of work or more at the
University and to other students
paying a small fee. Expensive
drugs, after-hours treatment, x-
rays, and laboratory work are pro-1
vided at a reasonable rate.
The Health Service hours are
from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1
p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and
from 9 a.m. to noon on Satur-
days. However, there is a physi-
cian on call from Health Service
at all times in emergency cases.
Each new student must submit
a medical history and examina-
tion before being admitted to the
University. This starts a folder
which is kept for all students.
Present files extend back for about
30 years. In addition, each student
is given a free x-ray when he en-
ters the University.
The'Service has been in opera-
tion since 1913 and last year had
120,000 clinic reports. It moved
into its present location at 207
Fletcher Ave., in April, 1940.
Infirmary facilities include 50
beds, eight full-time physicians,
three psychiatrists, and 15 to 20
part-time physicians who are on
the staff at the medical school.
Most of the latter are specialists
who are called in for consultation.
No physician caring for patients is
below the rank of clinical instruc-
tor in the medical school or full-
The budget for Health Service
runs about three-quarters of a mil-
lion dollars a year, part of which
the Service is required to raise
themselves. They were given about
$600,004 by the University last
Health Service tried to start a
student health insurance plan sim-
ilar to the one offered now by Stu-
dent Government Council. The
plan was to include all students
as a part of their tuition but oth-
er increases in tuition that year
prevented its inclusion and the
program was sponsored on a volun-
tary basis the next year. Health
Service does provide the insur-
ance company with information on
its rates and services.
Through the Environment Health
department, campus housing is in-
vestigated for sanitation and safe-
ty and recommendations are made
to the -administration.
Health education lectures have
been discontinued as a part of
Health Service but they have been
absorbed as part of academic lec-
tures in such departments as the
public health department.
Polio and Asiatic flu clinics have
been set up in the past when mass
facilities for innoculation are
available but a-student may obtain
an immunization shot any time at
Health Service. Also, immuniza-
tions are given students planning
to make foreign trips in the sum-
mer and to ROTC units who make
Every semester, students are
able to rent prints of the paint-
ings of well-known artists over at
the Student Activities Building.
The selection ranges from Ren-
aissance works through Expres-
.sionist paintings. The prints are
exhibited on the walls of the
third floor of the SAB. Students
are able to choose prints from
those on display.
This service is sponsored by the
University. It began. on donations
from outside sources, but today
there is a fund which has been
established over the years for its
continuance. The first donation
was contributed by the Hudson
Co. about 12 years ago.
Approximately 300 people bor-
row prints each semester. The
rental cost for one semester
varies from 25 cents to $1.25 de-

WHEN YOU'RE SPORTING TROJAN-CLEAN CLOTHES
Brenda needn't worry about what's going on behind
her back. She can pedal away serenely, knowing that she
passes muster on all fronts.
For one of the first lessons Brenda learned on campus
was that she can rely absolutely on Trojan dry cleaning
and laundering. Trojan appreciates that fine fabrics call
for very special care, that a line or a drape must be exactly
retained if fashion is to be fulfilled. So Trojan cheerfully
devotes the extra few minutes . . . the extra tender atten-
tions ... that restore a favorite frock to its initial lustre
And remember that Trojan pampers man - tailored
blouses. All blouses are completely hand pressed, are re-
turned to you on individual hangers carefully hooded
against dust and moisture. There's never an unwanted
crease.., yet you pay but 35c per blouse for this de luxe
Convenient, too. Trojan picks up -and delivers daily
at each girls' dorm. Try Trojan.
There's life in the old boy yet...and his trimap-
pearance shows it. That's a distinguished suit . e's wearing,
and he can count on perfect fit.. cleaning after cleaning

He learned that Trojan has discovered a new and
effective way to retain the exact, original shape that'i he
enjoyed the first time he wore the suit. Trojan's-secret lies
in restoring the suit coat's collar, shoulder, and lapel area
. . the "Vital Area" that determines a suit's appearance.
Send Trojan a suit and see for yourself'that "Vital
Area" pressing makes a world of difference.
Send your shirts along, too. They're a Trojan specialty,
