The meaning of free time
has at last become a reality
for Dr. Robert Sullivan of the
College of Dentistry, who has
recently completed a re
search in the cause of the
yellowing of teeth in children
with cystic fibrosis.

Sullivan had been spending 20
hours a week on research.
The disease with which Dr.
Sullivan worked, cystic fibro
sis, is a recessive hereditary
disease present in children
and adolescents, the symp
toms of which are chronic
pulmonary diseases, pancrea
tic deficiency, cirrhosis of the
liver and abnormally high
sweat electrolytes.

the disease.
Dr. Sullivan began his re
search by studying the possi
bility of bacterial action caus
ing the yellow color. Exces
sive saliva is secreted by the
individual with the disease.
The possibility of the salts so
dium and chlorine causing the
color was studied for quite a
while but no conclusion could
be drawn from the study.
So Dr. Sullivan turned to
the drug given to all of the
patients. He found that tet-
racyline crystals were pres
ent in the cells of the tooth.
"This drag, along with trace
elements present in the tooth,
was causing the coloring,"
said Dr. Sullivan. "Different
shades on different teeth
were caused by tbe difference
in tbe trace elements pres
ent" Some teeth have no yellow
coloring at all, said Sullivan,
and some of them varied ac
cording to the area of the
tooth. Therefore we had to
study each tooth and each of
three areas on the tooth,
making 60 areas in a mouth.

One phase of the Student
Council's Senators' Program
began Wednesday night when
Sen. Albert Kjar, Lexington,
visited Beta Theta Pi frater
nity. "This is the first time to
our knowledge a Senator has
been invited to a University
bousing unit," said Tom Ko
touc, chairman of the Sena
tors' Program committee.
In the next few weeks many
of the state representatives
win visit University bousing
units and each one will be in
vited back, be said.
The target date for hosting
each senator on campus is
the middle of March, be said.
Cliff Hardin Jr. is chairman
of this part of the program
which was designed by the
Student Council to allow Uni
versity students to invite who
they wanted when they could,
Kotouc explained.
The second phase of the
program, "Statebouse Lunch
eons,' which is directed by
Dong Thorn, wfll be launched
next Thursday.
The luncheons will include
state officials other than senators.

Sen. Kjar said in an after
dinner talk that the Universi
ty budget is a question that
the legislature will have to
deal with realistically.
He said that the difficulty
in budgeting Nebraska's high
er education system lies in
the fact that not one, but all
schools are asking for in

not be stretched far enough

were granted, be said.
