Winter has hit Nebraska. Of
course it's been going on for a
long time, but many of the Uni
versity students just noticed it for
the first time when they ven
tured out for several minutes for
the game Saturday. The wind
plows, threre is snow and to make
it worse all this is accompanied
With extreme coldness, especially
on the outside.

was an earthquake in Lincoln

The Social Science building is
one relic that just cannot with
stand the cold. In between classes
a thirty mile gale sweeps through
the halls endangering the lives
of all lightweight students. Just
yesterday one energetic engineer
rigged a parachute. He figured
the upward draft would carry
him to the third floor. Unfor
tunately he miscalculated and was
killed as his head hit against the
ceiling. - I

The University YWCA is doing
something different this year in
the way of community service.
Freshman girls now have the op

household chores. The chores in
: elude: baby sitting, washing cars,
: house cleaning, polishing silver,
Ironing, mowing lawns, raking

Figures Insist That Each
Student Will Catch A Cold
By CONNIE GORDON
From the looks of things, it's
going to be a very cold winter.
Almost every University stu
dent will catcft one and perhaps
two colds this winter. Whether
you like it or not, the sneeze will
be in style again this year.
Though' most people consider
colds bothersome and somewhat
irritating, they don't thing of the
common cold as a health hazard.
They are very wrong. Dr. Samuel
I. Fuenning, director of Student
Health commented that "The com
mon cold can be the forerunner
of many kinds of illnesses. Colds
may also lower a person's resist
ance to the point where secondary
infection can will in.".
Some of these "secondary in
fections" are not so secondary
from the health standpoint.
Pneumonia, bronchitis, pleurisy,
and even tuberculosis may
come from colds. Rheumatism
and heart disease can also result
from the "harmless" cold.
The cost pf a 'Cold , may seem
very sight from a subjective
point of view. However, colds are
the nation's most costly disease.
Colds cause from 50 to 60 per
cent of all absences from work.
This includes the class work stu
dents miss because of the sniffle-and-sneeze
affliction. The esti
mated cost of colds in the United
States yearly is two billion dol
lars. Catching a cold is a relatively
simple process. Some good ways
to do it include jumping around
in the snow farefoot, sitting in
drafts whenever possible and
lowering your general resistance
by getting physically fatiqued.
Now that resistance has been
lowered, the cold virus has v

probably settled in and is pre
paring to make life temporarily
If you do catch a cold, the best
thing you can do, logically is try
to rid yourself of it. Some ex
cellent cold-ridding rules include
going to bed and getting plenty of
rest, eating light meals with
nourishing foods and drfnking
plenty of liquids. '
If you want to spare your
health, don't blow your nose like
a bugle. This can force the infection
into your sinuses and eustacnian
tubes. Though you may become a
pam in tne necK xo omers, n is
best to just sniffle.
If your cold persists, be sure to
call a doctor. The cold danger
signals are fever, aches or a rack
ing cough for more than 24 hours.
Call for the doctor at once if u
have chills. The old saying "Better
late than never" doesn't apply
here. "The sooner the better," is
much more appropriate.
