und a family of 66 .people who
)peared to be carriers of the
sease called familial primary
stemic amyloidosis.
While some members of the fam-
7 had already begun to develop
tward symptoms of the disease,
hers did not know or suspect
ey had it. Blood studies revealed
e-clinical symptoms of the di-
ase in children from three to 18
ars of age.
Here were human beings who
ere young on the outside but old

ated that by the time these
iildren reached their late twen-
es, they would probably develop
inful hands, diminished vision,,
rhaps even heart ailments.
The principal significance of the
udy is its contribution to the
eld of genetics. According to one
the investigators, the technique

Why, television, of course. Clos-
ed-circuit television.
Closed Circuit Age
Rather quietly, with a word here
and a hint there, the closed-circuit
TV age has suddenly descended,
upon us. What is closed-circuit
television? Don't bother with the
technicalities. Just think of the
TV camera as an extension of
human vision, able to perceive and
transmit to selected viewers miles
away or in the. next room scenes
and information that cannot oth-
erwise be readily seen.
Time, Effort, Money
"This is the point," says John
R. Howland. "If I can see in that
other room it's going to save me
time or effort or money."
Howland is general sales man-
ager of a television products in-
corporation, of Michigan City, Ind.,
a major producer and pioneer in
closed-circuit TV. A year ago there
were about 100 such installations
in the country. Today there are
about 1,500. By the end of 1956
there will be 5,000, says Howland.
Here are not, just some of the
things closed-circuit TV is capable]
of doing. Here are some actual

Speech Department To Give
'Good Woman of Setzuan'

Seeing a female lead in a play
is easy enough to accept, but see-
ing her play a male role as well,
adds complication.
In the speech department's next
play "The Good Woman of Set-
zuan" by Berthold Brecht, the
"good woman" Shen Te and the
male "alter ego" she assumes show
the audience the interaction of
good and evil in society.
.The Good Woman of Setzuan"
is a parable in a Chinese setting.
The story .concerns three gods
who come to' earth seeking good-
ness in human beings. They start
their search by looking for some-
one to offer them hospitality for
the night.
The only person who offers them
lodging is Shen Te, a Chinese
prostitute. She later proves to be
the only human being who is
completely good. The gods reward
her with a store and money. The
rest of the story centers around
the people and crises Shen Te
Brecht, a contemporary German
dramatist experiments with an un-
usual approach in didactic theater.

With speeches to the audience,
witty evchanges, mock naivete and
Chinese conventions, Brecht adds
a new and different tempo and
texture to his theme.
The play is considered to be a
difficult one to produce for mod-
ern audiences. Since the heroine
plays not only herself but her
male cousin, Brecht faces the dan-
ger of creating illusion rather than
truth. However, he treats the
parable as an epic and concentrates
on characterization, without
thrusting pathos or anger on his
