Lawson Says
Polio Vaccine
May Be Cure
Dr. Robert B. Lawson, professor
and director of the Department of
Pediatrics at the Bowman Gray
School of Medicine, spoke in chapel
yesterday. Dr. Law'son has been
on the faculty of the medical school
since 1942 and has done extensive
reseach on polio.
“Everyone has had polio,” said
Dr. Lawson. When most people
think of polio, they immediately
think of the type that leaves a
person deformed. This is not neces-
sarilybrue, as minor illnesses, such
as colds and sore throats have some
of the same physical functions that
polio has.
Dr. Lawson went ®n to say that
the cause of polio is a filterable
virus that may be treated. However,
no definite cure of polio has yet
been established. Of temporary
value, gamma gloubulin is given to
children as a means of immuniza
Dr. Lawson gave a few quotations
from letters exemplifying the mis
understanding of the spread of this
disease. Some of the letters in
quired about flies, milk and soft
drinks. Instead of being spread by
these numerous things, polio is
caused by a virus . contracted
through personal contact.
It is believed that within the
next few years, a vaccine will be
established that will bring about a
definite prevention of polio, said
Dr. Lawson in closing,

Collet Enjoys
Golf, Camping
By Jane Brown
“Golf, I guess, though it’s dis
couraging at times, but it still is
my favorite,” bubbled Miss Eliza
beth Ann Collet, the new head of
the Physical Education Department
when queired upon her favorite
Miss Collet hails from Thomas-
ville. From there she went to
Woman’s College of the University'
of North Carolina where she re
ceived her Bachelor of Science de
gree. Last year she spent as grad
uate assistant at the University of
North Carolina, and while doing
that she completed work on her
M. A.
The topic of her thesis was in
the field of camping and was in
fluenced by her interest in this
field. Miss Collet has served
as water front director and is now
the head counselor for Rockbrook
Camp in Brevard.
Upon consideration of her favo
rite sport and having decided golf
ing was her favorite, she quickly
added, “But I’m just crazy about
square dancing.” Her favorite
spectator sport is football and
what’s more, she’s a Carolina fan.
Though Salem is not her first
teaching position (she taught at
Converse College in Spartenburg,
C. previously), we are very
happy_ to welcome her into our
portals. Salem likes her and hopes
she likes Salem.
