The remarkable record came lo ight when Uoyd Stein and Lloyd Joyce, trainers of Gopher athletes. eveale<l that experiments in Ihe East, regarded a s something new." tended to show that a cold liiartx ultra violet ray lamp killed ierins. ''We have been applying the same principles the past two years vith pleasing results." they said. The experiment, was tried by the miverslty medical department in collaboration with the athletic department. The lamp bos a two-fold effect,, they said. It kills cold germs and iniilds up cold resistance in Ihe individual. Referring to Eastern experiments, Boyce said: "Our lamp kills Ihe bacteria just ns that, one docs. The only change apparently, is that those, lumps <lo their work through a narrow si I lo make the light, more concentrated. "With. ours, which has no sill, Ihe boys have to wear dark glasses to shade their eyes." , Eacli day, 1 Gopher athletes stand up io Ihe cold quart'/, lamp', for n brief period. Then they are on their way, apparently protected against the common cold. Curry And Wisbar Win At Arena WASH & GREASE ?1.00 Wash. (Irrasc, 1'olisli and I wiiM-tl ¥5.00 | H. H.
