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
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
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
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
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
Kidney Disorder
"An excessive amount of
this protein may indicate a
kidney disorder or infection,"
explained Miss Knipmeyer.
The results of this test
showed that 155 students and
146 faculty and staff showed
indication of having albumin.

Moot. Court
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
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
The decision of judges
Richard Wilson, Leonard
Dunker and W. W. Muern-
berger was given to the ap
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.

program have been sent to the
