The Attackon Cancer• • •|{y DAVID MARTIN“The first and only lectureship onmincer in the world” has been es¬tablished at the University by MrsFrederick A. Lorenz with a jfift ofJ.7050 Lectures by authorities upontC disease may, according? to theaonor. be presented for the generalpublic or for smaller groups of med¬ical students. A program is to be an¬nounced. ... jTho lectureship is to be sponsoredbv the Committee on Cancer, newlyoreanized interdepartmental group ofleading scientists. Dr. AlexanderBrunschwig is the chairman and thegroup is responsible to Dean WilliamTaliaferro of the Biological Sciences.The research in cancer is beingcarried on in both Biological andPhysical science divisions, in Billingsclinics, in the medical school, and in¬dependently, by Maude Slye who isworking on the heredity of cancer. Sothat workers may be cognizant ofparallel work in other departmentsand be enabled to benefit by clues un¬earthed by their colleagues the newcommittee will act as a clearing houseand concentration point for data.It is not known from what fieldthe piece of information may comewhich will enable scientists to crackthe riddle of malignant growths inliving organisms. Pathologists arestudying problems of diagnosis andattempting to discover why animalsare immune to cancer of the digestivetract, a form of the disease which ismost deadly in man. Physicists areworking on radiation machines whichmay aid the cure and control of thedeadly growths, biochemists are at¬tempting to analyze sex hormones inanimals which seem to be transmit¬ting cancer or a pro<lisposition to it,botanists are studying tumorlikegrowths in plants, chemists havedeveloped the first artificial radiationsubstance, thus cutting costs of treat¬ments, and clinics have taken up thewoi k of keeping records of cancerousindividuals and families.* * •Money GrantsThe National Advisory Council onCancer, which suggested the formalorganization of the University cancerctimmittee, gave $7500 for research.I>r. Brunschwig received $2000 for hiswork on analysis of extracts fromhuman gastric cancers. Dr. Adair wasgranted a similar sum, and Dr. Stein¬er and Dr. Koch received a joint re¬search fund of $.3500 for patholog¬ical studies in cancer.Dr. Brun.schwig, committee chair¬man, has a double appointment asassociate professor of General Surg-tery and associate professor of Roent¬genology. He joined the Billingsstaff as a young assistant, developedan early interest in cancer and itstreatment. In his tumor clinics he istreating cancer with X-rays and, inmore advanced cases, using surgeryto halt the advance of the disease.* * *Members of the committee are Dr.Bred Adair, professor of Obstetricsand Gynecology; Percival Bailey,l>rofessor of Surgery and Medicine;Arthur H.

By ERNEST LEISER“University of Chicago co-ed re¬veals opium fed to students who re¬fuse to believe in Communism” wasthe startling comment revealed in theNews Summary and Historical Crap-book of The Chicago Daily Tribunereceived by the Daily Maroon yester¬day. The copy, a small satiricalMadison, Wisconsin edition of theWorld’s Greatest Newspaper wascomposed of only four pages, but inthose four .three-columned pages,complete with cartoon by Ork, wascontained a fund of sensational andvaluable news for the edification ofthe 843 individuals who read theTribune every day in December, 1938,Banner HeadlinesThe issue had a banner headlineinforming the host of W-G-N read¬ers that “Tot Slays Fiend”—“SexCrazed Waif Grills Red in Love NestCult,” The story was by-lined byWesley Cutley, correspondent for theChicago Tribune Press Service, whotold the public that “Boris Bolshevik-off, communist agitator, was drawnand quartered late last night at 45thStreet and Ellis Avenue, where hehad maintained headquarters of hislove nest cult, the dreaded RussianPassion ring.” The murder was com¬mitted in the presence of “Bolshevik-off’s brown-eyed sweetheart, HarryHopkins.”“Chicago police arrested four-year-old Stanley Bottle, of South Bend,Indiana, last night as a suspect.” Ac¬cording to the story Bottle admittedkilling Bolshevikoff, but when itwas learned that the latter was aRed, the police immedately relea.sedhim and awarded him a gold medal.Red Red RussiaBesides local information about therevelation of the University coed, theNews Summary epitomized the leadstory in the following terse phraseunder Domestic news; “Plot to givePulse AnnouncesReorganization ofEditorial BoardReorganization of the Pulse staffto add a member to the Board ofControl and to create three new Edi¬torial A.ssociate positions was an¬nounced yesterday by editor NedRosenheim.

The new plandoes not limit the number of Asso¬ciates, but provides a definite routefor advancement.ASU Theater GroupMeets at Ida NoyesWith the once-postponed play byArchibald MacLeish, “The Fall of theCity” and a comedy of Aristophanestentatively scheduled for production,the ASU Theatre Group meets thisevening at 7:30 in the YWCA roomof Ida Noyes. Other possibilities fornerformance by the group are ErnestHemingway’s latest and only play“The Fifth Column” and MacLeish’sfull-length work, “Panic.”Also up for discussion and decisionby the group is the problem of ob¬taining a new director for the groupactivities. The location of the nextproduction, the material to be pre¬sented, and the dates of presentationwill he decided at this meeting.While the meeting is open to themembership primarily, an invitationis issued to those who have expresseda desire to work with the group. U, S. to Red Russia goosed, as totbutchers fiend.” Under the Foreignnews summaries one was whichproved that “Free love in Russia iscostly.” Hot tips from Washingtondirect to the Tribune also revealedthat “Bill of Rights held constitution¬al by Supreme Court in surprise ver¬dict,” and “New Dealer admits incross-questioning that he knows whereRussia is.”After scanning in surprise the vici¬ous reference to the University, theblazing, sensational headlines, thecrudely sarcastic cartoon, and the col¬ored news summary, as well as threeother pages jammed full of editorialopinion, the reporter knew that thiscouldn’t be an authorized version ofthe Tribune, since the Tribune neverprints a four-page paper.The only conclusion that could bereached as to the source of the “Lit¬tle Trib,” was that some WisconsinUniversity students, motivated byprejudice and doubtlessly favoringoverthrow of the free press, had is¬sued the miniature as a slap at theWorld’s Greatest Newspaper.Note IncreaseIn RegistrationA greater number of advance regis¬trations is believed to be responsiblefor the increased number of regis¬tered students at 5 yesterday asagainst the same day of the quarterlast year, according to Ernest C. Mil¬ler, University registrar.The total figure for students on thequadrangles last night was 5202, anincrease of 345 over last year’s totalof 4857. Yesterday morning totalregistration at the downtown collegewas running 95 ahead of last year’smark of 601 for a total of 696. Rushmedical school’s enrollment last nightwas 208, or 19 less than last year’stotal of 227.Miller doesn’t expect any radicalchanges in this quarter’s figures. Itshould be about the same as theAutumn quarter’s total of 6029 forstudents on the quadrangles.“This increased early enrollment isdue to a significant rise in the numberof advanced registrations,” the regis¬trar said. “We hoped for better, butthe advance nevertheless was sub¬stantial.”Maroon ScoopsBillings onSyphilis EstimateBillings hospital preferred not toreveal the result of the syphilis testsconducted on incoming freshmen, butthe Daily Maroon isn’t quite so ret¬icent about publishing an estimate.According to the results of a studyconducted by the U. S. Public HealthService, 2.11 college students out ofevery thousand in the central statesare infected with the Ap¬plying a bit of rough arithmetic about13 University students have contract¬ed the disease.Tests 78,000 StudentsOver 78,000 students were testedin the survey. The rate for the entirecountry is about two per thousand.It was revealed that students in thecentral states have the highest rates,with western states rating next, thenea.stern, and finally southern, al¬though the Service in.sists that re-^gional differences have no signi¬ficance.College women are 15 per cent lessafflicted with the disease than col¬lege men. This difference is in linewith nationwide prevalence rates bysexes.Insisting again that the variationshave no significance, the Service re¬veals that small colleges have higherrates than do the large, the ratesper thousand being 2.31 and 1.95 re¬spectively.Moody Lecture ScheduleThe Moody lectures for the WinterQuarter will start on February 1.On that date, John Jacob Niles willnresent the first lecture of the series.Following him, J.

Splash, Dance,Mix at TwelfthNight FestivalAdd Joe College Touchto Medieval ReligiousFete.According to descriptions handedout by promoters Janet Geiger, AretaKelble, and Bill Webbe the TwelfthNight celebration at Ida Noyes to¬morrow night will be a cross betweena semi-sacred religious festival, aburlesque, a splash party, a Social-C Dance, a freshman mixer, and anaffair devoted to charity.Combining religion with rah-rah,the celebrants of the medieval ritewill also have opportunity to donate12 cents to refugee aid. Social lifersare invited to come stag or with es¬cort—the Ida Noyes and ReynoldsClub Councils have promised to pro¬vide beauteous damsels and prettymen for those too shy to get theirown dates. For the pennywise theIda Noyes doors will be thrown opento all comers for the evening with nocover charge.Open HouseFrom dark cloistered third floorto brightly lighted basement, the Hallwill be open all evening for variousamusements. For those not sociallyinclined and who don’t want to dance,there is the billiard room, ping-pongchamber, bridge tables, swimmingpool open to all, and the lounges.There is, however, one featurewhich might possibly detract from thelife of the party. Dean Charles W.Gilkey, originally slated to appear intights at the traditional ceremonywhich will include burning thefestive Christmas trees, hollywreaths, and mistletoe sprigs, will beamong those present, but in moredignified garb.Appoint SaadyahMaximon AssistantDirector of JSFFrom New York City comes thenew assistant director of the JewishStudent Foundation to assist in re¬organization.

Ittells them that all the moraleducation that matters shouldalready have been given in thehome, and that therefore theirchild will be on her own, withonly a minimum of dormitoryregulations.Not even the most cautious ofparents should fear the implica¬tions of this communication. Itis only a high sounding relic, forthe administrators of dormitoryaffairs hold it behind theirbacks and go on to do what theyconsider best for growing girls.Behind the almost blank facadepresented by dormitory regula¬tions, which list only hourswhen men must leave the dor¬mitory, there exists a deter¬mination to guard the residentswatchfully that rivals the bestintentions of the Eastern girls’colleges.Mrs. Harvey Carr, who is incharge of appointment of dor¬mitory heads and of the admin¬istration of dormitory regula¬tions, inaugurated the policy ofwatchfulness because she wasconvinced that college age girlswere not sensible enough to runtheir studies, social contacts,and health with the smoothnesswhich parents desired. However, this policy of maternalism comesinto conflict with the old “lais-sez faire” ideal, which most ofthe residents believe is still infull force. The result is com¬pletely ineffective confusion.Because precedent forbids theestablishment of binding rulesregulating the conduct of thestudents living in the women’shalls, maternalism can take on¬ly two forms. Dormitory headscan cock a w'ary eye at thehours kept by residents, at thecompany they keep, at the stateof thejr studies, and can advisethem accordingly. Dormitory of¬ficials can put out from the dor¬mitories girls recommended byi the heads as undesirable, or canrefuse to admit former resi¬dents who do not “seem hap¬py’’ "under conditions of dormi¬tory life.Neither of these two possi¬bilities is ever made clear toentering students who come tothe University expecting to beendowed with all the privilegesof adults. In at least one dormi¬tory they have been applied insuch an extreme form that theresidents have developed an al¬most neurotic fear that theyare being actively spied on.Some parents demand a policyof maternalism before they willallow their daughters to attenda strange university in a strangecity. Some girls demand itthemselves. The dormitories arenow being run for these people.They are not being run forthe students who ask only acomfortable and convenientplace to live and study and eat,the students who find their so¬cial life outside the dormitory,who don’t care enough aboutthe forty-odd girls who sharethe same building to be a cheerygood neighbor to all of them.These students feel that theyare mature enough to watchover their own lives, to live Withla minimum of flexible regula-jtions, and to be perfectly free toilive as they see fit.If Mrs. Carr desires to pleaseboth worried parents and ma¬ture students, her only solutionis in splitting the halls into twogroups. One w'ould have strictlyenforced regulations on hours,visitors, and study conditions.The other would have only afew general rulings made bythe residents for their own com¬fort.Those students who believethe letter which the Universitysends out to their parents findno place for themselves in dor¬mitories run with an eye to amaternalistic policy. Unlesshowever, the residence hallswere established as social serv¬ice institutions, these girls haveas much right to the conveni¬ence of dormitory facilities asanyone more accepting and co¬operative. A place should beremade for them.

They say that their dog “Champ”is easily the toughest hound on cam¬pus, and statistics seem to supportthis contention. So far this yearChamp has proved that he is worthyof his name by administering defeatsto canine representatives of SigmaChi, Phi Psi, Deke, and Phi Kap. Thebrothers are now proudly boastingthat Big Stoop is next on the list.In addition to having a dog activein campus affairs, some of the broth¬ers have managed to earn recognitionon their own. Blackfriars and the.\SU are the main Kappa Sig activi¬ties. Seven brothers, including theScribe, are active in the former, andeight men, one of whom is the pres¬ident, are members of the latter. Oth¬er men are active on the Interfra¬ternity Committee, the intramuralhoard, and the Law Review. Withfour men participating, wrestling isthe main athletic interest, althoughthere is a football player and atrackman in the house.In scholarship Kappa Sig rankstenth, with slightly more than a Caverage. The abler students, especial¬ly the six scholarship men, give val¬uable assistance to their less brilliantbrothers before exams. A note file, oldexams, and study hours from 8 to10:,10 also help. With the exceptionof the claimed mythical dog-fightingchampionship. Kappa Sig has wonfew intramural honors. Last year itranked ninth and so far this year itis twelfth.In some ways Kappa Sig .socialevents are very much like those ofmost other fraternities. They haveradio dances, a New Year’s Eve par¬ty, a formal at the Blackstone, and acouple of open parties every year. Butin one respect they have somethingno other fraternity has. They have abar built in the basement. Althoughthis bar is used only for parties andalumni functions, it is certainly aconvenience.* * *Kappa Sigma with 108 chapters inall but two states is the second larg¬est fraternity in the country. It wasfounded at the University of Virginiain 1869. The national organizationhas an endowment fund of four mil¬lion dollars, over half of which is outin house and student loans. The na¬tional fraternity is traditionally as¬sociated with the Chi Omega sorority,which is the largest in the country.This relation is more than a friend¬ship as one of the founders of thesorority was a Kappa Sig.The local chapter was founded in1904. It has been locatec^ in the houseit now occupies since 1926. The ac¬tives rent the building from thealumni. The rent applies against the$12,000 mortgage, so that in a fewyears the chapter will have no finan¬cial obligations on the house.Of the 27 Kappa Sigs, five ofwhom are pledges, 13 men live in thehouse. These brothers pay $52.50 amonth for everything. Actives notliving in the house pay $15 a monthfor lunches, Monday night dinners,and house and chapter dues. Pledgespay $2.50 less for the same meals andhouse dues. The initiation fee is $50.The Kappa Sigs are pretty evenlydivided among the three classes.There are eight seniors, nine juniors,and ten sophomores. University RoundtableReceives Unusual Fan MailInterview FreshmenNot at Open Houses By RICHARD MASSELLOne interesting aspect of the Uni¬versity Roundtable is the content andvolume of the fan-mail received eachweek. Letters of all types come pour¬ing in. Numerous people throughoutthe country have pet schemes which,they believe, if tried would quicklycure the country of all its ills. Manyof these persons write eight or tenpage letters, or send pamphlets ornewspaper clippings to the speakers.After the broadcast on “ThirtyDollars Every Thursday” there wasreceived three wastebaskets-full ofliterature on the plan. This seasonthe program which provoked the mostletterwriting was the one on “Repub¬lican Economic Alternatives” byWendell Gideonse and Smith. A closesecond to this was “Is ConquestWorth While?” with Edwards, Lavesand Wright.Pet SchemesComprising probably the biggest“pet scheme” group are the advocatesof the Henry George single-tax planwho send in letters week after week.One man believes the foreclosure ofmortgages is the root of all evil, an¬other that “as long as business dis¬criminates as to age, there cannot beuniversal liberty in the pursuit ofhappiness.”Others maintain that the only wayout of our difficulties is a return toGod. A Pennsylvanian writes that hehas been appointed by God to bring.salvation to this hemisphere and thatanother person has been appointed todo the same for Europe and Asia. Ata certain time, he says, the two willconverge on Jerusalem and establishthe holy, united world. This personhas written to every congressman,state and national, to numerous cityofficials and to the President and hiscabinet. Now he requests an oppor¬tunity to spread his gospel over theRoundtable.Men Disgust HerA woman in Michigan sends in aletter of a different nature: “You menfolks make me so disgusted, you sitthere Sunday after Sunday using alot of large words, arguing back andforth and, from what you say, donot even know what you are talkingabout . . . “What about the housewife ? Wouldany of us put out half a wash,* leavethe next day and go gadding? Notif we were good housewives. It seemsthere should be men with enoughcommon sense to straighten this out.Women are getting tired of living onhalf a loaf . .From Oklahoma comes another:“Have the flowing locks of Educationbeen permitted to grow at all? Haveits tentacles been permitted to be im¬bedded deeply in the economic fab¬rics? I say Nay, because it is boundin fetters of the political tricksters.”Farmer Urges Four SpeakersOne Wisconsin farmer came in per¬son to the radio publicity office to tellthem that The Roundtable neverreaches any conclusions because there are only three participants instead offour. He illustrates this point by tell¬ing how his children used to fightcontinually until the birth of a fourthmade agreements easier. All this heexplained by a diagram; If there werefour persons seated at the Roundtablethere would be two conversationsdiametrically crossing each other at acenter point. This point where thetwo conversations met, he claimed,would represent a point of agree¬ment.Most of the letters received, how¬ever, are encouraging. A typical onereads “It is our opinion that just suchprograms will be the deciding factorin saving our democracy. Not thatthey will tell us so much, but theywill foster discussion in the home,cause us to think.”The tremendous volume of mail,however, is not the only evidence ofThe Roundtable’s success. The pro¬gram, now probably radio’s mostpopular educational feature, is broad¬cast every Sunday to an estimated two million.

[Swimming Coach McGillivray is at-; Install Driving Range in Fieldhouse;Name Tanis as Golf InstructorGolf instruction is the newest ac¬tivity in Winter quarter sports activ¬ities, a bulletin issued by T. NelsonMetcalf, director of Athletics, an¬nounced. Varsity Golf Coach CharlesTanis, a professional instructor at theOlympia Fields Country Club who hashad 15 years of experience, has beennamed supervisor.To facilitate the innovation, a newdriving range is being constructed atthe east end of the Fieldhouse. The30 feet by 90 feet canvas, which isused to cover the basketball floor, willbe employed as a backstop. Underthese conditions, it will be possible toaccommodate eight players at a timewith a driving range of from 15 to20 yards.Lists ActivitiesThe bulletin, which may be obtainedat the Reynolds Club, lists Winterquarter activities, which include Bad¬minton, Bait and Fly Casting, Bowl¬ing, Golf Driving, Handball, Squash,Ice Skating, Rifle Shooting, RollerSkating, Social Dancing, Tennis andGolf Instruction as open activities. In¬struction in each of these events isfree with the exception of Tennis andGolf. They are designed to attractthe student unable to participate invarsity competition, and will, ac¬cording to Metcalf, be a useful sourceof recreation after graduation.The fee for individual instructiontempting to arrange water pologames with some of the above men¬tioned teams which the Maroons willmeet but a schedule has not as yetbeen completed. Although a greatdeal of swimming talent from lastyear’s team has been lost throughgraduation, enough able swimmersare available to justify prospects ofa successful season.THE NICE PLACE TO DINE IjTHE !ARAGOR CAFE5401 Cornell Foiricxx 8000♦Luncheons 35c-45c, Dinners 55c-85cWe cater to speciol groups.Luncheons - Dinners, etc. is $7.50 for five 30-minute lessons.Group instruction is $2.50 for fiveone-hour lessons.

Thechange from the old system useduntil now is being made to reduceseating confusion and riot hazards,according to Nelson T. Metcalf, Di¬rector of Athletics.If the new arrangement is notsuitable to a majority of C-bookholders, the old system may be re¬instated, at least for Monday nightgame when attendance is smaller andseating confusion is negligible. Theprevalent opinion in the athletic of¬fice is that only a small percent ofthe total number of C-books holdersdislike the change from the old sys¬tem and a much larger number willbe benefited by the innovation.NOTICENEW YORK TIMES deliveredto you on evening of publicxi- ition.
