much-heard-of persecutor of Chris
tians, Saul, who, for his refusal to
stop his ey}l deeds was struck by
blindness. He repented bitterly,

Christ. His many miracles and
acts of kindness make up a great
part of the oratorio.

Syphilis Discussed
By State Physician
Dr. Snyder Tells of
Effects of Disease
And Treatment
Many horrible crimes, about ten
per cent of the heart disease cases,
and 8 per cent of the people ad
mitted to insane asylums, are the
result of syphilis, stated Dr.
George Snyder, of the state board
of health, last night.
His lecture was sponsored by
Asklepiads, pre-medics honorary,
and was accompanied by motion
pictures showing the methods of
treatment and effects of the dis

; he said. He indicated how taxpay
ers pay for the treatment of the
disease and for the crime which
“We can’t figure the cost of
syphilis in terms of money,” the
doctor declared. He stated that in
1936, the disease caused more
deaths in the United States than
any other infectious disease; more
even than automobiles.
"They may not be mangiea up
as those killed in auto accidents,
but they’re just as dead,” Snyder
The disease may be cured 85 per
cent of the time by means of ade
quate treatment in the early stag
es, but the percentage of those
cured drops to 20 per cent in the
later stages, Snyder stated.
He stressed the need for con
tinued treatment for at least a
year to prevent the return of tlv*"
disease. He told how the disea (5
may remain in a latent state,
without any outward signs, for 20
or 30 years before breaking out
Following his lecture, the doc

the methods of treatment and diag
nosis as well as the affects of the
malady in insanity and other brain

to Emerald Editor LeRoy Mat
tingly yesterday.
It seems Mr. Newton,. who
came down from Portland to
take pictures of the weekend
ceremonies, got an excellent
shot of the lettermen ducking a
coed victim. Then, to identify
his picture, he walked up to the
girl and asked her name. The
lettermen promptly grabbed the
photographer and ducked him in
the pond for talking with a girl.
“And now I am looking for
pictures of them ducking me,”
he said. “If any amateur cam
pus photographer has any I will
gladly pay for them.”

their tenure at the helm was short
lived as the Beavers captured the
1927 and 1928 clashes.
Since 1928, the Orangemen have
been able to win honors only once,
sneaking out a 66 1-3 to 64 2-3 vic
tory in 1932.
Hayward’s performers have held
.the upper hand since 1932, winning
five straight meets. Last year the

Would Ask Questions
The questions he would ask are:
1. who is paying to have this in
formation distributed ? 2. what ex
perience has the teller had in the
field of his topic? 3. how much
training has the mind of the teller
received to enable him to under
stand his subject? 4. what are his
politics, religion, and nationality?
and 5. what does he aim to accom
plish by the distribution of this
material ?
Three plans were advanced at
the meeting for avoiding war. Pro
fessor A. L. Lomax suggested the
pooling of resources of the “have”
nations with those of the “have
not” nations in a world communal,
thereby easing the war-provoking
tension among countries in the
race for vital raw materials.
Plans Planned Economy
Lieutenant-Commander Bryant’s
tentative plan for international
security was one of planned econ
omy for the United States with
reference to foreign trade—to be
carefully worked out and applied
without destroying the ideal of
A third system considered by
the group was that proposed by
Professor Charles G. Howard which
hinged upon the abolition of pres
ent predatory economic practices.
Howard showed that realistically
a strong navy defense is essential
to American economic welfare as
long as the world system is con
tinued upon a basis of survival of
the fittest.
The first attempt at peace edu
cation at the University will be
completed tomorrow when Bryant
will address the entire student
body in the auditorium of Gerling
er, and will hold a final forum in
the Alumni room afterward.
