    Low Degree
Of Sanitation
Defeats India
Lark of Drainage, Sewage
Systems Are Blow to
Hospital Work
American Doctors Not Sent
By Organizations Out of
Place in Country
Hospital standards in India are
practically the same as in the
United States, but the fact that
the Indian people as a whole have
so much lower standards in sanita
tion and living in general retards
the work of the hospitals and mis
sion stations, acording to Dr.
Elizabeth Grace Lewis, jmedical
missionary, who spoke to the
Westminster association and the
Asklepiads at Westminster house
last night.
Dr. Lewis has been stationed in
India from before the World war
in several hospitals and missions.
She has just returned from Am
bala, The Punjab, where she has
worked in the interests of th»
Presbyterian church since 1918.
Government Has Hospitals
The speaker declared that there
was no place in India for Ameri
can medical practitioners unless
they are sent out by some organi
zation, because it means that
they are out to make money. The
government of India, she said, has
both a military medical service
with a station hospital in every
military center and a government
civil hospital in each of the im
portant cities.
These medical agencies are rap
idly being Indianized, acording to
Dr. Lewis. The Indians take their
preliminary work in Bombay or
Calcutta and then go to England
for their doctor’s degrees. The
native practitioners do not charge
fees for their services. They sell
drugs, in which the Indian people
have considerable faith, said Dr.
Lewis.

large city has 300 or 400 patients
a day, for whom he merely fills
out prescriptions as fast as he can
write. Many of the native doctors
train their sons by having them
help in the business until they
have learned enough to be "ha
kims.-”
Dr. Lewis said that plagues,
especially bubonic, were quite
prevalent and dangerous, and that
tuberculosis was common among
the women and the hospital nurs
es. She explained that sanitation
was needed, for there is an almost
complete lack of drainage and
sewage systems, even the hospital
in Ambala having no running wa
ter, but only water from the city
well.
Bad Conditions Unseen
When asjced about the conditions
reported in "Mother India,” Dr.
Lewis stated: "The conditions
which are described in the book
are in the main true, but they
aren’t so obvious to us. When
you know them, the people seem
much nicer. It is quite true, how
ever, in most respects, but it
just shows one side. I have seen
many of the things told of in the
book, but not often.”
The speaker centered her talk
around a party which she pretend
ed she was giving for a group of
Indian women friends, just as it
would be done in India. Seven
students of the University were
dressed in Indian costumes, which
Dr. Lewis explained to ihe 40 as
sembled students.

By Noted Authors
The University library has re
ceived three new books during the
last week which have been cata
logued and are now ready for cir
culation.
“College,” by John Palmer Ca
vils, is a story of our educational
system and our present day col
lege life. Mr. Gavits says “there
is something wrong with our col
leges but no one can agree ex
actly what that something is, al
though most authorities will agree
on the fact that there is entirely
too much ‘passing the buck.’ ”
Seeking how to cure this “some
thing," Mr. Gavits has visited
many colleges and this book is the
result of his expedition.
"The Eagle and the Serpent,"
by Martin Luis Guzman, relates a
tale of a Mexican revolution. The
story is written with the eagle as
the symbol of democracy and the
serpent representing tyranny. The
author lias served under several
prominent Mexican generals and
knows many of their systems.
“Learn or Perish," by Dorothy
Canfield Fisher, is a call to edu
cators to refresh their personali
ties with new intellectual and cul
tural activities for the sake of
continuing our mental growth.

Give Joint Recital at
Music School
By DAVE WILSON
Satisfactory technique and cap
able interpretations marked the
performance of both Jane Kanz
ler, pianist, and Beulah Wynd, vio
linist, in the joint student recital
which they gave last night at the
music auditorium.
Miss Wynd, a sophomore stu
dent of Rex Underwood, gave her
self no favors when she selected
her program pieces. Her opening
number, Sonata in A-major, by
Handel, was an intricate and dif
ficult composition, as were Arthur
Wright's "Spanyo,” Novacek’s
“Perpetuum mobile” and Vieux
temps "Fantasia Appassionata.”
In all of these, and especially in
the last, she displayed promising
execution. Her double-stops were
effective.
In her two contrasting numbers,
an air by Mattheson and “Menu
ett” by Mozart her tonal qualities
were pleasing and her transitions
smooth.
Miss is.anzier ciia nor attempt
any of the heavily-chorded and
crashing compositions which most
piano recitalists include on their
programs, but in her three num
bers showed a pleasing natural
ness and simplicity which made it
a pleasure to hear her. In Mo
zart’s Adagio in E-flat major her
firm forearm action, flexible wrist
movement and light touch made
the slow-moving composition dis
play all its natural charm and
daintiness.
These qualities, combined with j
effective and discriminating use of
the pedal, made Debussy’s “Clair
de Lune” particularly enjoyable.
She concluded her part of the pro
gram by demonstrating with Schu
mann’s “Whims” that she could
do equal justice to a more eccen
tric and heavier-toned work.
Women Debaters

Dr. Mez Follows Movies
Willi Ghamli Lecture
Pictures of India taken during
the world debate tour in 1927-23,
were shown to the women’s de
bate squad last night by W. E.
Hempstead Jr., instructor in Eng
lish and one of the three men to
take the world debate tour. The
pictures were shown in connection
with Dr. John R. Mez’s extension
class on international trade poli
cies of the Pacific area, which was
held at 7:15 o'clock in 110 John
son.
After the showing of the pic
tures, Dr. Mez lectured on India,
with special reference to Ghandi.
The women’s debate squad is us
ing the question this year, “Re
solved, that Ghandi has been a
benefit to India,” and the pictures
and lecture were for their benefit.

WHAT SHOW TONIGHT?
McDonald — “Hew Moon,"
with Lawrence Tibbett.
Colonial — Gloria Swanson j
in "What a Widow.”
Rex — “Outside the Law," !
with Mary Nolan.
Heilig — "Personality,” with
Sally Starr.
State — "Lawful Larceny,”
and "Beyond the Rio Grande.”
“New Moon” Has Opera Stars
In one of the finest pictures of
the year, Lawrence Tibbett and
Grace Moore, famed Metropolitan
grand opera stars, are appearing
at the McDonald today and for the
rest of the week.
"New Moon” is an all-talking
adaptation of the whirlwind stage
success, made tuneful by the mu
sic of Sigmund Romberg.
The unusual inclusion of these
two stellar pames in the musical
world in a single production as
sures one of the most distinctive
productions of the year.
The rest of the cast includes
Adolphe Menjou, Roland Young,
Gus Shy, and Emily Fitzroy.
Mary Nolan is featured today at
the. Rex in an intimate crook
story, “Outside the Law,” support
ed by Owen Moore and, Edward
Robinson.
The story revolves around a rob
bery of a large bank by a crafty
cracksman and the complications
resulting in his refusal to make a
50-50 split with a gang leader.
The action moves swiftly and
builds up a highly dramatic and
tense climax.
Swanson’s Wardrobe Costly
Gloria Swanson’s latest screen
offering, the talking and singing
comedy, “What a Widow,” play
ing its last day today at the Co
lonial, is not only the star’s first
comedy in several years, but it is
also one of the most costly produc
tions of her career. Her wardrobe
affords a fashion show itself.
Songs were written for this pro
duction by Vincent Youmans, li
brettist of many a Broadway suc
cess.
Heilig Has Marriage Comedy
Sally Starr, wno plays the feat
ured role in "Personality,” opening
today at the Heilig theatre, an all
talking comedy of marriage life,
looks like a pocket edition of
r
Lawrence Tibbett and Grace
Moore, appearing at the McDonald
in “New Moon” this week.
Clara Bow. She has a dash of the
Bow “it” and belongs to the “mod
ern pep and personality” school.
She appears opposite Johnny
Arthur in “Personality.” Support
ing roles are played by Blanche
Frederici and John Murray.
State Has Double Bill
There is no doubt but that the
new policy of a double bill every
Tuesday and Wednesday at the
State theatre is going to prove
one of the most popular features
of that theatre.
Today “Lawful Larceny,” with
b-be Daniels and Lowell Sherman,
coupled with “Beyond the Rio
Grande, with an all-star cast will
be on the screen.
