American Creativeness
Praised By Historian
An English historian Monday
evening saw a parallel between
the great creative Elizabethan age
and the present America, which
he predicts will too be known for
its creativeness.
Delivering the first in a series of
three Humanities Lectures at the
University, Dr. Alfred Leslie
Rowse said America's emergence
from the great test of the 20th
Century has given it a tremendous
The character of America's peo
ple 50 years ago also resembled
that of the Elizabethan age:
"young, pulsating, rustic, back
ward." He listed modern American
poetry as an example of the coun
try's rising prominence in creative
ness around the world.
Called one of the most distin
guished writers now living on the
history of the Tudor period, Dr.
Rowse stressed that the founding
of Jamestown 350 years ago was
not so much the beginning of
America but more the culmination
of Elizabethan efforts to establish
an English-speaking colony in the
New World.
In his initial lecture, Dr. Rowse,
who is a Fellow of the Royal So
ciety of Literature, described "The
Elizabethan Age." Wednesday, his
lecture will be "The Personality of
Elizabeth I," and Friday, "Sir
Walter Raleigh and America."
The two letcures will begin at 8
p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in
Love Library Auditorium.

NU Education
Council Plans
Area Section
The University may organize a
regional section of the Joint Coun
cil on Economic Education, accord
ing to Dr Richard Bourne, asso
ciate professor of business organi
zation. Dr. Edward Allen, associate di
rector of the Council, met Mon
day with Chancellor C. M. Hardin
and University ecconomics profes
sors to discuss the possibilities of
setting up such a regional group.
Possibilities also were discussed
about what could be done at the
University to improve the teach
ing of beginning economics cours
es in an attempt to interest more
students in economics.
Also discussed were ways by
which the University could better
prepare future teachers in the in
structing of economics in grade
and high schools.
Purpose of the Joint Council on
Economic Education, a non-partisan
organization with headquar
ters in New York City, is to create
an economic awareness on the
part of all students primary,
secondary and college.
The council sets up workshops
and gathers economic material
from business, labor and agricul
ture, in an attempt to help teachers
across the U.S. be more competent
instructors of economics.
Dr. Allen, who taught at Colum
bia University and was dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences at
Maine University before joining
the Council, works primarily with
University professors of education
and economics.

appear to be of the general flu

But he warned that there is still

The University doctor stressed
that both varieties of flu spread

been widely subjected to flu virus

"If students who have flu sump
toms, especially those who run a
fever, will report their illnesses im
mediately, they will help to mini
mize any further outbreak," Dr.
Fuenning said.
With the cooperation of the cam
pus dorms, fraternities and soror
ities, the Student Health Center
has instructed individuals in each
organization on the care that should
be given flu victims.
When a person gets flu he should
report it to his health chairman,
house mother or organization head
in order to insure proper treat
ment and to prevent more than
minimum spread of the infection,
Dr. Fuenning said.
"Some students with fevers' have
not been taking it seriously and
have continued to attend classes
and take part in activities. These
people," Dr. Fuenning emphasized,
have not been fair either to
themselves or others."
The Student Health Center re
ported that 17 of their 25 beds!
four beds were added in the past
week were filled Monday with
students who had "more serious
cases of flu."
Dr. Fuenning estimated that be
tween 30 to 50 students are being
treated for flu in the houses and
dorms on campus. All of these stu
dents are being checked daily
by their health chairmen and a
practical nurse from the Student
Health Center. '
These cases are of less serious
nature than those being cared for
at the health center.
Dr. Fuenning said there was a
possibility that some of these stu
dents might infect others, but that
"it would be impossible to take
care of the large number of flu
cases in any other manner."
The Student Health Center ha3
added two nurses to its staff since
early October to help handle the
illnesses. These additions pushed to
10 the number of nurses working
at the health center.
In addition to the nurses, there
are two full time and five part
time doctors caring for flu victims.
"In spite of these additions, the
staff has been pushed to do over
time work," Dr. Fuenning said.
The Student Health Center direc
tor said that the campus "so far
has seemingly escaped Asian flu
of any proportions." He said that
a few cases two weeks ago showed
"symptoms highly suspicious of the
Asian flu variety.
