Co-Ed Antics Are Strictly For Science By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - A group of pretty co-eds have talked their parents into letting them swallow tranquilizer pills this summer, stay up all night and eat nothing but milk shakes They aren't trying to start a new fad among collegians to replace pantie raids. Nor are they the least bit worried about ruining their health. In fact, their doctors have given their wholehearted lip proval, too. The gifls are part of a larger group of volunteer human guinea pigs at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda Md. And their unusual vacation pastimes, which sound like fast living delinquent antics, are acta ally complicated scientific expert ments used to track down the causes of disease This summer 21 girls and four boys, all in perfect health, have volunteered to go through a bat tery of about 40 highly skilled medical tests being carried out by the mental health, heart, neurology and arthritis and metabolic institutes. Seek Disease Clues What doctors learn about the functions of a normal body will help them find out exactly what goes wrong to make a person ill. They hope this knowledge will bring them closer to discovering the cause of such diseases as cancer and multiple sclerosis T1m« Horatd, Carroll, Iowa m Saturday, Aug. 31, 1957 CAMERA MAGIC . . .

Mrs. Meyer and Dean and Mrs. Martens left Friday. Mr. and Mrs. Don Moeller and children, Valerie, Gail and Billie, of Peoria, 111., and Earl Moeller of Marshalltown visited from Friday until Sunday in the home of Mrs. Anna Kelley.

By a system of intricate controls outside the chamber, doctors study how the patient turns food and air into energy. When these clinical workouts become too monotonous or hectic, patients can look forward to the tranquilizer experiments. Doctors give the happy pills to patients so they can learn how different people react to the drugs. Most of the student patients are recruited by the Mennonite and Brethren Churches. Some work at the clinic only during the summer while others remain for as long as 18 months. This is one way they follow church doctrines w h r-c h stress members should do everything possible to help their fellow man. Since many of the men are conscientious objectors, they can substitute this medical work for service in the armed forces. These churches also recruit students from other denominations as well. This summer there are Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians and Jews undergoing the tests. family reunion at Iowa Falls. Ruth Mae " Fleming, R.
