Winter Park Is Invaded: 'Skiing Is Nobody qualified for the Winter Olympics, but 14 students and their chaper one returned from Colo rado with the opinion that "skiing is great." The group spent five days during Christmas vacation at Winter Park, Colo., as representatives of the Stu dent Union's annual ski ex cursion. One Sprain Only one member wa3 listed on the casualty rolls and escaped with a sprained knee. The daredevils of the slopes left Lincoln early Dec. 29 and traveled in the clubcar of the Burlington Zephyr. (Due to overcrowd ed conditions, the car had working overtime (at left) as black clouds of smoke and white clouds of vapor rose nearly straight into the air. And it was just as cold downtown as on campus. The Continental National Bank temperature sign (at right) reminded passersby of what their cold faces already told them. who tested positive have been identified as "probably dia betic." "The significance of these figures lies in the fact that 2 to Vh persons per 1,000 on the University campus have been found to have diabetes without being previously aware of it," said Dr. Ken neth Rose, director of re search for the University Health service. "This means that there are probably 200-250 persons in the city of Lincoln who may also have diabetes without realizing it," he said. 1.7 Cents Each Cost of the tests is approxi mately 1.7 cents each, while similar testing done in a doc tors office would cost about $2. However, once a year dur ing National Diabetes Week, Nov. 15-31, all doctors coop erate to run free tests on in dividuals who desire them. Due to lack of initiative on the part of the public, this method has been successful to only a limited degree. Suggested by a consulting physician to the University Health Service who wishes to remain anonymous, the new idea was given Impetus by Dr. Samuel Fucnning, direc tor o f the health service. Much of the "legwork" also wag done by Dr. Rose and Miss Celeste Knipmeyer, pub lic health nurse. The importance of early de tection cannot be overempha sized, according to Dr. Rose. One example of this is the fact that when the body fails to burn sugar, it burns fat in stead. This causes the for mation of certain fatty substances believed to cause hardening of the arteries. Still another result may be blindness. Persons who have family histories of diabetes should be especially careful to have frequent test checks, Dr. Rose noted. All persons are rec ommended to be tested once a year though he said. Additional possibilities for the method are seen in the future when similar test strips may be used to discover kid' ney ailments and other dis eases.

Famous Novelist Newly Appraised By Dr. Hough The hook. "The Quiet Reb el: William Dean Howells as Sncial Commentator." writ ten by Dr. Robert L. Hough of the University department of English, is a recent publi cation of the University Press. The new appraisal of the famous American novelist is concerned primarily with Howells' T'A-i as a social re former from 1900 to 1920, when he was the occupant of the "Editor's Easy Chair" on Harpers Monthly. Many observers believed Howells' interest in social reform died with the defeat of the Populist Party m 18, Prof. Hough writes, but to the contrary Howells continued to speak for reforms such as prison reform, woman suf frage, abolition of capital punishment and world government. member may nominate a can didate.
