'U' Heredity Clinic Illustrates
Inheritance Types in Exhibit



A new exhibit on display at the
University Museum illustrates the
three types of human heredity re-
sponsible for inheritance of normal
and abnormal traits or diseases.
The Heredity Clinic, a research
and public service agency, is spon-
soring the exhibit. The clinic ad-
mits more than a hundred families a
year for study of inherited traits or
characteristics is studied, by using
Principals To
Attend Annual
Meeting Here
Approximately 250 high school
principals and other administrators
will attend the 18th annual Princi-
pal-Freshman Conference at the
University Nov. 14.
According to Registrar Ira M.
Smith, 143 Michigan high schools
and four out-of-state high schools
will be represented.
The principals will confer with
graduates of their schools now at-
tending the University as freshmen,
whille several deans of Michigan
junior colleges will be present to in-
terview former students who have
transferred to the University.
Some 1,500 freshmen and transfer
students will have the opportunity
to submit progress reports on their
first five weeks at the University
and to talk over college adjustment
problems with their former princi-
pals and deans.
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer, of the
graduate school, will be the speaker
at a luncheon to be given at noon
Thursday for the visiting principals
and deans and University personnel
having contact with freshmen. Dean
Sawyer will discuss the Bikini atom
bomb tests of which he was technical

complete family histories as a basis
for predictions.
Dominant, recessive and sex-linked
inheritance in transmission of di-
seases and other abnormalities are
explained in the display. In domin-
ant inheritance, a child may inherit
and develop a defect from just one
parent and pass it on to about half
the third generation, according to
Dr. C. W. Cotterman, Clinic research
Dominant inheritance is illustrated
in Pick's Disease, a brain degener-
ation which may not begin until the
victim is in the third generation of
life, but may be indicated by a
knowledge of family history, Dr.
Cotterman said.
Recessive Traits
Recessive inheritance, passed on
to a child by two "carrier" parents,
who need not necessarily develop
the defect, is more difficult to trace
than dominant inheritance. One
fourth of the children of carriers
inherit the defect, unless one of the
parents is a rion-carrier, in which
case the children will all be carriers
who do not develop the defect.
Rare diseases transmitted by re-
cessive inheritance are likeliest to
appear as the result of inbreeding.
Sex-linked inheritance, including
about fifty abnormalities, if quite
rare, will appear almost altogether
in - men, Dr. Cotterman explained,
because women serve as carriers but
seldom develop the defects.
Women carriers who marry normal
men will have half their sons de-
velop the defect and half their
daughters will be carriers. Affected
men who marry normal women will
produce normal children, but the
girls will all be carriers and the ab-
normality will appear in the grand-
Sex-linked abnormalities may be
traced to a factor in the "x-chromo-
some" which determines the sex of
a child.,

Haber Stresses
Production As
Union Problem
Sees Inevitability of
Strikes on Wage Issue
Emphasizing the tremendous
growth of organized labor in the last
ten years, Prof. William Haber of
the economics department, speaking
Sunday at the International Center.
said that labor unions have reached
the point where their progress is tied
up intimately with the progress of
the whole country.
The problem of labor unions is not
only a problem of distribution of in-
come but also of production, Prof.
Haber said.
Pointing out that many outstand-
ing people in the field of labor re-
lations think that the only basis for
sound labor relations is voluntary
collective bargaining, Prof. Haber ex-
plained the difficulty of enforcing
legal restrictions on the right to
strike and also maintaining produc-
More strikes are inevitable because
of the current wage-price race in
which wages are lagging behind
prices, without reaching an equib-
rium, Prof. Haber said.
Pointing out American labor's fear
of left-wing ideas, Prof. Haber ds-
scribed American labor as wage-con-
scious rather than class-conscious.
