Act, Then Talk!
Although the response to the first
day's call for students to take the
Wassermann tests was fairly good,
not all members of the organizations pledging support showed up
at the old Law building. Our old
failing to talk rather than to do
comes to the front. From now on,
in addition to publication of schedules in the Kernel, each organization will be notified. After we have
reached all the organizations possible, we will take individuals alphabetically.

Spirochaete; a squirmy, microscopic body that can bore irresistably
through even an intact membrane,
and that if undiscovered, can bring
insanity, blindness, heart, disease,
apoplexy that was one side. It
was the bad side.
Medical science; a group of spirited scientists, armed with every
device in the service of medicine
to countercharge the opponent, and
stusanctioned by a
dent body, determined to preserve
healthy, happy living. That was
the other side. It was the good side.
Only a very few of us know about
this spirochaete enemy. It has been
discovered disguised behind common every-da- y
colds, simple ailments that we usually overlook as
unimportant. But then it strikes,
and then it must be trapped.
At our University dispensary yesterday the first of the many campus
organizations took the Wassermann
test. In the course of the next week
other groups will follow. Soon, it is
hoped, the entire student body will

"Syphilis" was the subject of Dr.

of hygiene, when he addressed mem
bers of the American Student Union
at a meeting of that group Monday
night in the Union building.
The University chapter of the
ASU voted to support The Kernel's

members of the group pledging
themselves to take the Wassermann
tests.
Doctor Hamilton pointed out that
syphilis was caused by the germ.
treponema pallidum, a type of spir,

Tracing the methods of transmis
sion of the disease. Doctor Hamilton stated that approximately 90
percent of the cases were contracted
through intercourse. Only abut one
tenth of one percent of the cases
are from accidental causes, the doctor said. The remainder of the cases
are congenital syphilis.
Doctor Hamilton described the
three stages of syphilis and gave
methods of treatment. He closed
his talk with a discussion of the
outlook for syphiletics.

Into Panic By Radio
Program Over CBS

By JOHN ED PEARCE
"the meteorites, bearing these
men from Mars with their deadly
gas and rays, are lighting like locusts. Our people are dying by the
thousands," came the tense voice of
the radio announcer in H. G. Wells'
radio play "Worlds At War," but
the students of Kentucky, ignorant of the fact that it was just a
play, went wild.
While thousands of Americans
outside Lexington were hysterical
with terror and excitement, many
students of the University became
horror-strickat the thought of
death from above, in the form of
rays" from strange guns,
"death
and gas 'that spreads ahead of the
wind and kills all life'."
One boy who lives on Forest Park
road was unable to stand the
thought of being killed by interplanetary warriors, and attempted
to jump from a second story window. "At least I won't be here
when they come," he screamed. He
was dragged back by a room-matjust as he was about to jump to

The play, which was depicted in
the form of news broadcasts given
over the national hook-up- s,
pictured
the arrival of thousands of men
Mars, who armed with rays
from
and gas wiped out seven thousand
New Jerseyites Just as a warm-uand then started on the army and
navy of Uncle Sam. Many of the
students here who failed to listen
to the beginning of the play were
thrown into confusion by the news
that the world was being conquered
and its people killed by a malignant
force from Mars.
Perhaps the scene of greatest
confusion was Patterson Hall, where
p.

dozens of girls began crying hysterically when they heard the news.
Many of them began to pack, while
others hurried to phones to make
hurried calls for assistance from
parents. Calls were made to Texas,
Missouri, and many to parts of
Kentucky.
One girl, certain that
her days were few, sobbed out to
her father, "If this is the end, don't
you think we ought to be together?"
Leslie Lee Jones fainted at the
second news flash. Adele Ball attempted to quiet some of the girls
by teLUng them to read their Bibles.
Polly Pollitt called her mother in

Ashland and gurgled out to her sur
prised family that the word was
coming to an end.
Over at the boys' dorm conditions
were little better. Boys fought to
get to the telephone in order to
call their parents. One or two sat
by with pale faces, while others
wept openly.
All agreed that it
looked like the end.
'
Numerous cases of temporary insanity were reported. One student
who lives on Euclid avenue sat at
a radio and slowly tore his hair,
all the while mumbling to himself.
His roommate just sat and cried.
At the PiKap house Bob Brown
was listening to the program while
he shaved. Upon hearing the reports he wiped the lather from his
face, jumped into some pants, and
tore out of the house. "If it was
going to be the end, I was going
to see my girl," Bob admitted later.
Sally Cannon and her mother
were listening to the radio in horror
stricken silence when suddenly a
fuse blew out and the lights went
off. Mrs. Cannon, with a moan of
fright, clung to Sally and said
"Honey, this is the end; they've cut
the power lines."
Lillian Gaines Webb and her

mother were likewise listening to

to the phone and called her hus-

"I'll be next; they'll kill me too. I
heard it: I know. I heard it when
he died." But the other boys kept
on praying. Two of them ran from
the house, jumped into cars, and
started to leave.
Meanwhile one coed called the
airport in an effort to charter
plane. Students kept thinking of
ways to get home. One boy sat

said "It will all be different now.

with some friends, and told him the

news on to his friends and rushed

by the news that it was all in fun.

Plans are under way to have willing members of the University hygiene classes take the test In groups.
The University chapter of the
American Student Union at a meeting last night voted to support the
campaign with each member of the
group pledging himself to take the

test.
Supplementing the Wassermann
tests will be a series of talks and

interested groups further their

Organizations that have already
