'IT TAKES GENIUS':
'U' Press Sales Now Rising Rapidly

Tomorrow
Fr e d H o y le, internationally
known cosmologist and originator
of the theory that our universe is
in a "steady state" and never had
a beginning and will never end will
lecture at the University tomorrow
and Thursday..
Professor Hoyle is a lecturer in
mathematics at Cambridge Univer-
sity in England and author of "The
Nature of the Universe." The book
first presented his new theory of
the continuous creation of matter.
He will speak at a colloquim to-
morrow entitled "The Mathematics
of the Steady-State Theory," The
lecture will be at 4:15 in Aud. B,
Angell Hall.
In the Thursday lecture, to be
given in the Rackham Lecture Hall
at 8 p.m., Hoyle will discuss his
ideas in a talk entitled "The Time
Scale of the Universe."
His theory, which sharply con-
tradicts the hypothesis that the
universe originated with a super-
1 collosal explosion some five billion
years ago, postulates that our uni-
verse never had a beginning and
will never end. The lectures will
follow along the lines of this
theory.
Also noted for his work in
astronomy and astrophysics he has
presented theories in fields ranging
from theology to sociology,

fU' Doelors
Begin Study
Of Disease
A University medical doctor and
his team of researchers are out
to lick a serious medical and social;
problem-Congenital Hypothyroid-
ism, an endocrine gland disease.
The believe that their findingsl
will bring happiness and a normal
life to hundreds of children who
otherwise would have grown up
feebleminded. They also feel that
by doing so they will save the
people of Michigan a lot of money.
The project is one of three un-
derway in the University Medical
School, being financed by an over-j
all grant of $300,000 for research
and development of human re-
sources in Michigan from the State
Legislature. Earmarked for this'
project is $40,000. It is the first
appropriation of its kind to come!
to the University.
Dr. William H. Beierwaltes, the'
Department of Internal Medicinel
in the Medical School, is in charge
of the project. He explains the
problem this way: half of the
children with endocrine gland di-
sease have hypothyroidism-a form
of endocrine gland disease result-
ing from either having been born
with no thyroid gland, one pro-
ducing a limited amount of thy-
roid hormones, or a very active
one which is working very hard to
produce lots of everything but the
element needed most-the thyroid
hormones.
Children Called Cretins
Children born with any of these
thyroid problems are called cretins.
If a child is born a cretin, chances
are he will wind up .in a State
hospital for the feebleminded.
What happens is this-thyroid'
hormone is vitally important to
the development of "nerve'
sheaths." These act like insulation;
wrapped around the nerve strands.'
A lack of sufficient thyroid hor-
mone results in an effect very like
an electrical short circuitw-the
wire has no insulation.
