Doctors Need
Humanities,'
Says Kennedy
Canfield Talk Given
By Regent-Physician
Restoration of the "intangiblk
values" which make the relation-
ship between doctor and patien
one of mutual understanding anic
trust was recommended Saturda.
by Dr. Charles S. Kennedy, -.neak-h
ing here yesterday.
Dr. Kennedy, Detroit physiciv.
and a Regent of the University,
delivered the Roy Bishop Canfield
Memorial Lecture, paying tribute
to the late Dr. Canfield, for many
years a distinguished member of
the Medical School faculty.
"With the rapid progress in sci-
entific medicine which has been
attained during the past half cen-
tury, there has been an accom-
panying loss in what might be
called the humanities," Dr. Ken-
nedy explained. "The patient in
many instances has become the:
object of scientific research and
not a human being in quest of
medical relief, while the doctor
has become the scientist with
little of the warmth of under-
standing sympathy and friendship
which inspires confidence in the
patient."
Dr. Kennedy also suggested that
a growing trend toward special-
ization of medical practice has
had the same effect of widening
the gulf between the doctor and
patient.
"The general practitioner should
be restored to his rightful place
as the keystone of the medical
profession," Dr. Kennedy declared.
"There are many areas in this
state where no well trained doctor
is available and, as a result, es-
pecially during the war years,
these districts have been invaded
by pseudo-medical practitioners
and frank charlatans."
Cartier Plans
One-Man Act
Performance To Have
Imitations of Stars
Jacques Cartier, America's one-
man theatre, will appear in the.
second Oratorical Lecture presen-
tation of the season at 8:30 p.m.,
Nov. 3 in Hill Auditorium.
A gallery of portraits of the
world's great actors and their
styles of acting will be included

clude actors from the days of
Euripides of Greece, through
Shakespeare, Moliere and the
Moscow Art Theatre, to the stage
and screen stars of today.
Each of the twelve scenes will
be produced in authentic costume.
Typical of the praise which
Cartier has received is the Herald-
Tribune review which called his
performance, "as thrillihg a thing
as you will find in the theatre."

A FACULTY FOR KNOWING:
Battin Boasts Circus
And Vaudevile Record

.< >

By MARY STEIN
Speech students probably would
not recognize a former circus bark-
er and vaudeville hoofer in their
Fundamentals of Radio 151 or 152
instructor, but Tom Battin's been
both.
It's only fair to add that he s
had plenty of other experience in
the theatre, movies and radio.
Battin has greasepaint in his
blood from a couple generations
back, his grandfather having start-
ed the first opera company in
Ohio in the 1800's.
Just Like Jolson
By the time Battin was 9 or
10, he was eagerly awaiting the
visits of Eddie Cantor, Al Jolson,
and Bill Robinson to Marietta,
Ohio where he lived, so that he
could watch their techniques. To
sing "just like Jolson," and to
tap-dance became major ambi-
tions.
His college career began in 1925
at Ohio State, where he majored
in speech and drama.
New York's bright lights, how-
ever, lured him away from the
academic life in the summer of
1927, and he landed on Broadway
and 42nd St., without a job pros
pect. Luckilya cameraman who
originally hailed from Columbus
was so glad to see someone from
"back home' that he got Battin
a job as assistant director of
movie shorts.
Studied and 'Crooned'
Obtaining his A.B. degree in
1930, Battin taught for a year
in a Virginia high school, where
he introduced speech courses in
the English department.
For sever years, he directed the
plays of a Warren little theatre,
whose professional acting and
production standards earned it a
reputation as one of the finest in
that section of the country.
When the little theatre burned
down in 1941, Batton betook him-
self, with his theatrical group, to
a non-inflammable radio micro-
phone. After helping to establish
a 350-watt station in Warren.
he produced two dramatic shows
a week, using the play house
groups.
Headed to Hollywood
After producing ordnance de-
partment shows in 1942 for a
coast-to-coast hookup, Battin took

a breather and headed for Holly-
wood in 1943. There he played
bit parts in several movies, among
them being "The Story of Dr.
,Wassell."
He called Hollywood "a magic
:ity - -it can mesmerize you.'
He added, "You've got to be smart
tO get by there."
Here at the University besides
giving instruction in radio fun-
damentals, Battin works with the
Broadcasting Service in produ.-
ing radio speech dramas. Next
spring he also plans to teach a
course in advanced speech for
doctors and nurses.
Now that the University is to
have an FM station of its own.
Battin predicts a bright future for
the radio department. "It should
be one of the best in the country
within a year," he said.
