Baldwin Handles Tots, Traffic, Troubles
Martin E. Baldwin is the only
man in Ann Arbor who knows most
of the names of the Angell school
"I rarely slip up," Baldwin said,
"except when the two sets of twins
in the school come along. After a
good many years on the job, I still
can't tell them apart."..:

and a policeman's cap, may be seen
four times daily at a driveway near
Washtenaw near Hill. Rain or

safely across the street. ><
He keeps tabs on them all, de-
livers messages from anxious pa-
rents and even sees that their y
noses are well-blown before they...
enter school.

"My work's wonderful," Baldwin I
declared. "I have been on it five
years and it's fun to watch the
kids grow up."
Besides his traffic- manager's
job, Baldwin works from midnight
to 7:00 a.m. on the Ann Arbor

bicycle gets me anywhere I want
to go. I just zoom up to

For the college crowd, Baldwin
had a comment that' could best
be described as cryptic. "They are

ST. LOUIS - (R) - A taxpayer
objected yesterday to paying three
cents "postage due" on campaign
literature 'mailed to him by Ray-
mond O. Douglas, Republican
seeking reelection as St. Louis
county circuit clerk.
"This will never win friends and
influence voters," the taxpayer
wrote Douglas.
The office holder checkd with
the post office and found that all
1,700 letters he had mailed were
marked "postage due."- Douglas
said he simply couldn't under-
stand it.

Can Control
Germ War
SaysMey er
American doctors now have thej
tools to minimize the effects of
germ warfare, according to Dr.
Karl F. Meyer, director of the Uni-
versity of California's Hooper
In an address yesterday before
the School of Public Health on the
subject of "Diseases of Animals
and Men," Dr. Meyer called for
an increasing "plague conscious-
ness" on the part of professional
medical people so that they might
be prepared for any possible at-
HE DECLARED that by. the use
of streptomycin and aureomycin,
the Black Death can be effectively
Dr. Meyer also told how cer-
tain human infections can be
transferable to animals, espec-
ially bovine tuberculosis in cat-
tle. He declared that carriers,
often farm workers, can spread
the damaging disease to the cat-
tle through their excrements.
People working at animal hos-
pitals, he continued, can pass on
lepto-sclerosis to dogs. He advised
that dogs be treated before being
brought home.
DR. MEYER emphasized that in
attempting to stamp out epidemics
in the animal world, public health
workers must consider the, socio-
logical and economic factors of
the situation.
He illustrated this by showing
that Brucellosis Melitensis, a di-
sease found in goats, swine and
cattle, causing undulent fever,
should not be stamped out by
slaughtering the animals but by
immunization. Before this was
done, herds of cattle were killed
with little attention to the finan-
cial loss incurred.

Writes Book
On Atom Blast
A University graduate, Richard
Gerstell, has capitalized on his
wide experience in the field of
atomic radiation to write a new
book, "How To Survive an Atom-
ic Bomb."
The book consists of five sec-
tions, all dealing with the proper
methods of precaution and care
to be taken before, during and af-
ter an atomic explosion. It has
been published in two editions, one
with a paper and the other with a
hard cover.
Gerstell was senior radiological
safety monitor for the first board-
ing teams in the atomic bomb tests
at Bikini. His work there was re-
warded with a citation from the
late Secretary of the Navy James
Later, he served as an instrue-
tor in the Navy's first Radiologi-
cal Safety School, which he helped
organize. At present he is consul-

Mystery Solved
AUBURN, Ind.-(A)-Ever since
his unsuccessful primary election
campaign in 1942, Prosecutor
James A. Angelone of nearby But-
ler had been intrigued by a minor
mystery-who cast that one lone
vote he received in. Butler town-
He even mentioned his curiosity
about it in 1946 and 1948, when
he won the Republican nomina-
tion and the elections as DeKalb
County prosecutor.
Yesterday ,a Butler farmer, Wil-
liam Custer, told Angelone he had
cast that vote for him in 1942.
The prosecutor sent him a letter
of appreciation.

Standing before stern-faced,
black-robed "jurists," four Univer-
sity law school juniors yesterday
pleaded their case in the semes-
ter's first trial in the law school
Case Club court.
Here under actual court condi-
tions, students" receive their first
baptism of fire in their chosen pro-
ment system, members of one case
club try a case against opposition
"lawyers" from one of the 16 rival
clubs. All the individual units are
under the general law school case
club organization.
In yesterday's inaugural, law
school juniors Lee Saulson and .

Daniel Kirk representing the
Knappen Club vied with J. G.
Brummer and Allan Neef of the
Woodiward Club for the court's
approval in a bankruptcy case.
Sitting as judges in the case tri-
ed by juniors are two seniors and
a faculty instructor who speciali-
ize in the type of law involved in
the particular case. When fresh-
men are standing before the bar,
two juniors and a senior preside.
* * *
THE CASES though generally
fictitous, often are based on act-
ual incidents.
The facts of the case are
drawn up by the presiding judge
and presented to the attornies on

both sides a few weeks in ad-
vance. Based on these facts and
a considerable amount of re-
search, each' side writes its brief
and presents it to the court.
After both sides have pleaded
their cases, the judges retire to
consider their verdict. This is de-
livered in three sections. First they
announce which brief they con-
sider to be the best prepared, sec-
ond, they announce which oral ar-
gument they have adjudged the
best and finally the decision of the
case is announced.
Winners of the first two points
gain a point for their club. The
senior judge then criticizes the
"lawyers" on their handling of the
