Page 4 The Nebraskon Monday, Jan. 16, 1961 Diabetes Indicate Test Results Two Cases By Jim Forrest Results from the second an nual diabetes self-testing pro gram sponsored by the Stu dent Health Center showed two University staff members to be definite diabetics. According to Celeste Knip meyer, public health nurse, these two individuals in addi tion to two borderline diabet ics also discovered among the staff personnel did not know previously that they had the disease. These unknown diabetics were discovered through their participation m the Student Health's program of do-it-yourself testing, which was in itiated as a new method of diabetes detection a year ago. The program involves send ing 5,000 individual self-test, specially treated indicator strips to faculty, staff, and students. In a comparison with the program's initial year, Miss Knipmeyer said that 775 re turned the test strips for anal ysis this year as to 725 last year. Increase Out of this total 338 were from students and 437 from staff and faculty. Miss Knip meyer pointed out that this was an increase of 208 among the students and a decrease of 158 among the staff. "Many of the staff who par ticipated last year didn't feel It was necessary again this year," said the public health nurse. "The marked increase among student participation we feel Is due to the better publicity within the student houses." No students were found to have the disease, according to Miss Knipmeyer. In an attempt to realize the full capabilities of this self testing program, St u d e n t Health this year added a test for excessive albumin in the specimens. Kidney Disorder "An excessive amount of this protein may indicate a kidney disorder or infection," explained Miss Knipmeyer. Sevareid The results of this test showed that 155 students and 146 faculty and staff showed indication of having albumin.

How we Americans waste our educational resources! How Europeans strangle their human resources in the cradle! To toss one more rem nant on this litter heap let me say that I believe America and Europe, fully developed and working to gether, could stand off the Communist world in every respect. But a fearful num ber of socks need pulling up first, and by no means are all of them made in Amer ica. Dist. 1961, Hall Syndicate, Inc.

Court Decisions Awarded Decisions were held for the appellees in the first two rounds in the pre-Christmas semi-finals of the Allen Moot Court Competition held in the law school court room. In the first round appellants Betty J. Holcomb and Aug ust Schumann and appellees Robert Zuber and Shelley Krantz were concerned with a case involving a Negro farmworker committed to jail for failure to post bond when he was found to be the only eye witness to a crime. Right to Detain The question was whether the authorities had the right to detain him indeterminately when the accused suspect was not yet under arrest. This first round marked the first time since 1953 that a woman has reached the semi finals of the competition held annually. The judges for the first round, Winfield Elmen. Rich ard A. Knudson and Charles Oldfather, awarded the deci sion to the appellees. In an evening session, ap pellants Richard Gee and Merritt Powell and appellees Sam Van Pelt and Ronald Schuyter argued out the sec ond round. Birth Control This case concerned the constitutionality of a state birth control statute. A doctor and two patients brought the case to test the validity of 'he statute when it was shown that the health of the two pa ients' was endangered and the doctor was precluded by state law from prescribing treatment. The decision of judges Richard Wilson, Leonard Dunker and W. W. Muern- berger was given to the ap pellees. Moot Court faculty adviser Is Richard Harnsberger, as sociate professor of law. Additional rounds in t h e semi-finals are to be sched uled before semester break, according to Harnsberger. the test strips put misleading instructions on the accom panying card. They said that if the test strip changed color it. was an indication of albu min, but the strip will change a little under plain tap water," said Miss Knipmeyer. Knowing that most of the people who checked a positive reaction were mislead, Stu dent Health is asking each in dividual to come in for addi tional testing. Miss Knipmeyer re-emphasized the importance of early detection to avoid complica tions which, as they become worse, become irreversible and the patient will never re turn to normal. Student Health officials stat ions which, as they grow ed that unless a better test strip is developed for next year's program, especially the albumin test they will re quire that each strip be sent to Student Health for processing and analysis. The albumin test may be discon tinued altogether, Miss Knip- meyer said. The results from this year's program have been sent to the State Medical Association for evaluation.
