William Warfield, widely known
baritone singer, found the turning
point of his career, as so many
aspiring artists have, was his debut
at Town Hall in New York City,
back in 1950.
Warfield, who presented the fifth
Choral Union concert last night in
Hill Auditorium, said yesterday
that he didn't consider the Town
Hall concert "particularly thrilling
at the time," and that "I never
dreamed it would be the turning
point in my career."
Warfield, Who appeared in Ann
Arbor two years ago -at the May
Festiyal, said that he had been'
singing in various night clubs
around New York for about five
years when a night club fan offered
to put up the $1,500 necessary for
the Town Hall debut.
One Small Step
"And, if I had known then what
the result was going to be," he
noted, "I probably would have been
too, nervous to sing."
Warfield said that instead, he
regarded the appearance as just
one more small step to an eventual
rise to recognition and the accom-
panying opportunities it would
bring.
"The morning after my con-
cert," he said, "it seemed like
every report in both th1e papers
and in magazines was wonderfully
favorable, and, as a result, I was
snowed under by offers for book-
ings and managers."
Career Snowballed
The baritone,, who is well re-,
membered as the character "Joe"
in the movie "Showboat" where
he sang "Old Man River," said
that from then qn his career snow-
balled into the mnovies, broadway
shows, television, orchestral ap-
pearances, musical dramas, and a
number of foreign tours.
In reference to his experiences
and travels, Warfield said that
"I've just about had 'the works.
The only part of show business I
haven't appeared in has been
opera, and the Far East and South

WILLIAM WARFIELD-The widely known baritone singer, who
appeared last night in Hill Auditorium, got his big break in show
business when he made his debut at Town Hall in New York in
1950. He did not realize at the time that this would mark the
beginning of his rapidly rising career.

America are the only parts of the
world I haven't visited," he added.
To Tour Far East
Warfield, who also starred as
Porgy in the smash hit "Porgy and
Bess" on Broadway, said that he
was remedying the latter situation
by a Far Eastern tour starting
next January, and that he hoped
to visit Latin America before too
Icng.
When asked about his impres-

sions of Ann Arbor ,and of college
audiences, he said, "Nothing makes
an artist like a city better than a
fine reception by the audience, and
the enthusiastic way in which I
was received here at my last per-
formance made me more than glad
to return."
He added that he has always
enjoyed performing for college au-
diences because of their more en-
thusiastic way of showing ap-
proval.
Mayor Plans
To Participate
In Conference
Ann Arbor's mayor, Prof. Sam-
uel J. Eldersveld of the political
science department will represent
the city of Ann Arbor in the 34th
annual American Municipal Con-
gress Sunday through Wednesday
in San Francisco.
"Human Needs in the Changing
City" is the scheduled theme for
the four day gathering of city of-
ficials from t h r o u g h o u t the
United States.
The topics planned for discus-
sion include the city's responsibil-
ities in problems of youth and of
the aging, city responsibilities in
connection with' mental health,
community assets in relation to
new industry location, city re-
sponsibilities for recreation and,
cultural programs, fringe area
problems and city expansion.

By THOMAS HAYDEN
A University medical research
team is presently aiming its reme-
dial guns at the serious problem of
cretinism, a disease marked by
feeblemindedness and physical de-
formity.
Medically referred to as congeni-
tal hypothyroidism, the ailment is
an endocrinal condition resulting
from either the malfunction or the
total absence of the thyroid gland.
Victims of the disease, known as
cretins, suffer from retarded
growth and extremely low Intelli-
gence Quotients.
Important gains have been made
with regard to diagnosis and treat-
ment, accor ing to Prof. William
H. $~eierwa tes of the Medical
School.
Study Diagnosis
"We are now certain that if
cretinism is diagnosed at birth, or
very shortly thereafter, we can'
treat the victim with large doses of
thyroid hormone, which will result
in his having an almost normal
IQ," Prof. Beierwaltes said. "This
will make him capable of marrying
and leading a useful life."
This fact was proven, he said,
in experiments with pregnant dogs,
by feeding the mother dog large
amounts of the hormone, which
"elevated the thyroid level of the
puppies at birth."
The research staff will soon be
presented with an opportunity not
only to test their beliefs, in actual
practice, but to set a medical pre-.
cedent, he noted. A woman with no
Tests Show
Bat Rabid
County health officials confirmed
their belief yesterday that Charles
B. Arnold, '59E, was bitten by a
rabid bat last month.
Arnold's case was only thesec-
ond in the history of Michigan.
The other instance was in 1956, in
the western part of-the state.
According to Arnold, he and an-
other member of Theta Delta Chi
fraternity went down to the fur-
nace room on Sunday night, Oct.
27.
Bat Walking
"The bat was walking along the
floor," he related, "and we hadn't
even known that bats could walk.
"Then we though maybe it
couldn't fly. We put it on a shelf
to see if it would fly, but'it just
walked' along the shelf until it
came to the edge and then fell off."
Arnold explained thaA4hey did
this several tims until finally the
bat bit him. At this point both
men gave up ad put the bat
outside.,
After a visit to Health Service,
they retrieved the animal and kept
it under observation in the base-
ment, where it died the next day.
Confirms Rabidity
The bat was taken to the Uni-
versity's Pasteur Institute, where a
preliminary study by Dr. William
Preston gave "almost certain" con-
firmation that the bat was rabid.
A series of tests and examina-
tions conducted by the Institute
led to yesterday's absolute confir-
mation. Additional evidence was
desired for complete certainty.
The Pasteur treatment, an in-
jection of rabies vaccine daily for
two weeks, cured Arnold. Treat-
ment started Oct. 30 at the Univer-
sity Health Service.

For courses having both lectures and recitations the "time
of class" is the time of the first lecture period of the week. For
courses having recitation only,'the "time of class" 'is the time
of the first recitation period. Certain courses will be examined
at special periods as noted below the regular schedule.
Courses not included in either the regular schedule or the
special periods may use any examination period provided there
is no conflict or provided that, in case of a conflict, the conflict
is resolved by the class which conflicts with the regular schedule.
Each student should receive notification from his instructor
as to the time and place of his examination.

thyroid gland, now pregnant for
the third time, has previously given
birth to two male cretins.
Will Try Theory
Prevention of the disease in her
baby, Prof. Beerwaltes believes,
can be accomplished by giving the
mother thyroid hormone, which
will be transmitted to the fetus.
"This should be the first time
that anyone has anticipated the
disease and prevented it," he
claimed. The baby is expected in
about four months.
"We have also established," Prof.
Beierwaltes continued, "that the
fetus is quite autonomous in sup-
plying itself with hormone if the
thyroid gland is intact."
This was shown by an experi-
ment in which the thyroid gland
of a pregnant dog was removed.
"The hormone level dropped to

zero, while the puppies' level r
mained normal," Prof. Beierwall
said.
Looks to Future
Looking to the future, Pr(
Beierwaltes speculated that "pt
haps we may give skin tests
women before marriage to fi
antibodies against the - thyro
glands." In this way, possible ci
tinism could be staved off.
The project is financed by
state grant, and operates on
current budget of $42,000. "T'
amount of money is very ad
quate," Prof. Beierwaltes cor
mented. However, he cited a shor
age of laboratory space as one di
ficulty.
"We have requested more spa
