Football Has Something to Answer for Here Although endless columns have been written about the real rn imag- jnary evils of "overemphasis" in college football, it took this queer, tragic case of the Dartmouth College halfback to present the problem in its true light. In this case, as you may recall, an intensely religious young student found it hard to square his career as a football star with his conscience. He dropped out of football, returned to it when a fuss was raised, then tried to end his daemroa by leaving college altogether and taking refuge with members of a religious cult. This f\ct simply focused national publicity upon him. and made it all the harder for him to get the peace and quiet he seemed to be needing. And his case is significant because it is not one that reflects discredit on the college authorities. Dartmouth is one of our most respected colleges. Its record in regard to "overemphasis" is certainly no worse than that of other schools in its class; on the whole, it is probably a good deal better. This lad was no bewildered young husky sent to college for the sake of his athletic talents; he was a sincere, intelligent student who became a member of the team simply because he enjoyed the game. • Eut somewhere along the line something worked a profound injustice on this young man. Honestly bewildered and confused, he found his role as coaege student a great deal more complicated than it ought to have been When he decided that football was not the game for him, he was unable to give it up simply and without a fuss, as would have been the case if he had decided, say, to cut out bridge or poker. .Now the point'of it all is-that the resulting hullabaloo—which can so easily hpve a very bad effect on the boy's whole life—wasn't anybody's fault There isnt any villain in the piece. This lad simply got caught in the machinery of intercollegiate football and it did things to him And that is where football as an institution has something to answer for As a game, tt is a fine sport; collegiate rivalries are wholesome and stimu- (atirtg; tne game can well be a valuable feature of college life. But when the mstitation of football takes a bewildered boy, lifts him high up into the Sfrt^T u? ^° mff:1 f, h -™ *° solve his most personal problems there in sight of the multitude—well, then, there is something radically wrong It isn't fair to put young men under that kind of pressure. A -lad who goes to college to prepare himself for life deserves a better break.

By Bruc* Catton Salt Winds and Stainless Steel It's not so much what you put into a ook as what you leave out that makes food reading, according to Richard lughes, and certainly he bears out the ruth o fthis axiom in his newest novel, ui Hazard" (Harper & Bros.: $2.50). This is Mr. Hughes' first book since High Wind Over Jamacia" and it turns ut to be nearly as good a story. Mr. .ughes spent three years writing it nd finally suceeded in pruning it to 279 pages. It is a sea story smacking strongly of Conrad, but in thi case the struggle is of men in a 9000-ton modern steamer, the Archimedese, pitting themselves and their ship agailnst a hurricane. As Mr Hughes describes it, the crew of the Archimedes would have likely fared better in one of the old sailing vessels for the modern steamer proved helpless in the stortrC The wind carried off her funnels, water flooded her quarters, the steam stopped and thus her power, electricity, was useless. j The psychological struggle of the cre-.v is Mr. Hughes' main interest as he develops his story.—P.

MORRIS FISmjEIN "*" Editor, Journal of the AhicHcan Metllcnl Association, ami of Hygcln, (he Itcnith Mngnztnc Some Types .of Rheumatism Improve With Any New.Treatment- 'Whenever a new substance is introduced into medical science, there are certain diseases on which it is in- variabley tried with the hope that it may accomplish something. Among these diseases is rheumatism. All sorts or tracatinents and cures have been proposed for rheumatism from time to time and it is intereesting that almost any of them seems to be associated with a certain number of remissions and cures. This means of course, tbct a certain percentage of cases of rheumatic wotiditlons deal of treatment. In 1935 two investigations veport- LH! that they had seen considerable improvement In two rheumatic patients who received massive dosses of vitamin D. They believed that a rcliitinship existed between the use of calcium by the body and the occurance of arthritis and that possibly the vitmin Ohacl affected tho'calcium inthe body OUR BOARDING HOUSE ... with... MAJOR HOOPLE In such a manner ns fo bring nbojii im- porveincnt in the nrthritis. Later these invosligntors reported improvement iji 25 out of 34 pntients with rhemntit coditions who lind been treated with Inrge closes of vifnmin D. but nt ebout the sumo time other investigntiors begnn to report that the result which they attained were not so eneurnginjf. For this reason two investigators in Boston undertook to mnke n extended stiidv of some study of some cases of i-lieunintoid nrthritis which they treated with large doses of vitimon D and which they studied before, during nnd after the treatment. In the course of thes e studies they made n chemical tests of the blood Physical tests of the blood, nnd careful records of all of the patients with a view to evaluating accurately, the benefit* or the harm that might be derived from such treatment for arthritis. As a result of their investigations they concluded that this method of treatment did not matcHolly influence the course of the disease. Certainly the results were too disappointing even to surest that this 'method of treatment was in nriy wey Specific for rheiuriiilic arthiti.i . At the same time, they observed in connection with the giving of massive dncses.of the Vitamin D certain toxic symptoms which caused them to t|ifes- tion it freedom from harm under such circumstances. The toxic symptons developed whether or not the Vitamin D wns ginven in milk or in some other substance and whether or not yeast wits given at the same time. In a few cases the patients seemed to improve just as soon us the new method of treatment wns established but it is not significant because it has been observed Uicl patients with chronic arthritis tend to seem to omprove just as soon as any new treatment is begun, .
