Baby Returned To Own Folks In Fine Shape by I NITKl) I’RKSS STOCKTON, Sept. 28 — “Thank <iotl Its o\pr. tlur prayer* ha\«* b«»«*n nnftwereri," saiil Dr. Sanford Marcus. "The hahy'ft fine and my wife is fine — so now we’re going home and live happily ever after.” We are now going to be the happiest family in the world. I will be able to go home to my other children and bring home the child I had promised them. We feel no rancor toward the woman. We feel only great pity. We think she is psychologically disturbs! and in need of medical attention. We are very grateful *he took such good care of our baby. It looks wonderful. The baby will be taken to the hospital for a checkup before we bring him home. But he looks fine—he really looks fine. A woman's voice said, ‘Doctor, I'm terribly sorry. I hope you can forgive me. I saw you on television. I saw' your children on television and your wife. I wanted to return the child. I read about it in the newspapers. The story in the newspa|>ers made me realize the enormity of what 1 had done.*' sc Drama Baghdad Situation Told in Bovard Faculty by Reynolds | One of the most exciting aspects of the SC drama department's coming presentation of "Summer and Smoke" which opens Oct. 25 in Bo\ard Audi-• torium is the importance of the plays minor roles. Besides the lead roles of Dr. John Buchanan Jr. plnved by Joe Jenckes, and Alma Winemiller, | port raved by Gretchen Kanne, 11 I other roles contribute to the ef-I fed that Tennessee Williams ach-j ie\os in this drama. Marvin Zuckcrtnan will be seen as the Rev. Winemiller, Alma's severe father, who is a fussy and staid weakling. Mrs. Winemiller will l>e played by Barbara Grover.

The 1200 pounds of beef on the hoof galloped without pause for about two miles while pedestrians scattered in every direction at the sight of the one-steer stampede. The animal trotted back and forth In the grass whit? mounted policemen slow'Iy encircled it in the best western cowboy tradition. Seven men from the Butchers Dressed Beef Company were rushed by police car to the park. One of the city wranglers lassooed the animal in expert fashion and tied it to the tree. WEATHER Ijoh Angeles and vicinity—low clouds Thursday morning, ha/.y sunshine ami slightly warmer Thursday afternoon. High near 18. Actress Ethel Barrymore will present the original manuscript of her autobiography "Memories,” to the Doheny Library today at a reception in the Colonial Room at 3 p. m. , Miss Barrymore's eldest son, Samuel Colt, will make the actual presentation to President Fred D. Fagg Jr., and Dr. Lewis F. Stieg, SC librarian. Illness prohibited Miss Barrymore from making the presentation herself. “The autobiography is an important addition to our American literature collection and history of the theater, since this will give the library the writings of three Barrymores’” Stieg said. SC. has the author's corrected galley proofs of “Good Night, Sweet Prince.” the story of John Barrymore by Gene Fowler, and the original manuscript of "We Barrymores” by Lionel Barrymore. Maynard T. Smith, graduate student in cinema at SC, acquired the gifts. He also obtained for the library the original manuscript of Actress Billie Burke's autobiography, “With a Feather on My Nose,” Lionel Barrymore’s novel, “Mr. Cantonwine,” and Mark Sennett's autobiography, "King of Comedy." New Theory Told On Fatal Diseases An entirely new theory of how istry; and three undergraduates fatal diseases arc caused by large in the SC Medical School began , . , .. working with him. These undei- amounts of metals in liver cells £,ra(lua(ps were Bob Kiskin, a has been forhied by a group of junjor jn Medical School and the SC scientists They have learned that within each liver cell there is a biological "sponge" which has the ability to soak up metal ions from the solution which bathes it. These "sponges" are technically ferritin, a protein found specifically in liver cells. The scientists found that in a certain group of diseases there was a parallel pattern ol trace metaLs. By experimenting with thin slices of rat liver they were able tq trace the flowr of metal into the cells and study its metabolic changes after entering the liver. Working with several metals, but primarily iron, they learned it does not require metabolic en-ntuo|.n ergv for metal to be picked up of t| p ° Hyink' new' by the body. “■ ' f'Ca,ion* ta ,he Metabolic ........ chemical ones in living cells, by which energy is provided for the life processes and by which protoplasm is built up and destro>ed Recently Launched The study was launched a couple of years ago by Dr. Ed Butt, | |arge chief pathologist at l<os Angeles County Hospital, and member of Ihe SC faculty.

The discovery, which is now being looked at with interest by scientific groups, was at first rejected as unreasonable, Dr. Saltman said. Metal Study The iron diseases, which the men have been concentrating on primarily, include lead poisoning, hemochromatosis, and refractory anemia. They plan to begin studying Wilson's di'ease. ta latent copper poisoning) and diseases j (a used by other metals In the near future. The scientists are supported by . the Atomic Knergv Commission ! because they are using radio-ac- ! tive material as tracers. l As Ihe next step in their experiments the scientists will study what happens in the diease state and how other trace metal are laid down: and they will try to isolate the metal Irom the liver itself. Trace metals" refer to the number of metals only >eded by the body in very small quantities. These include iron, lead, manganese, copper, and /Ine. Di Butt is continuing Hie pathological aspects of the study, correlating the kinds ol diseases. Dr. Frisch is working on the theoretical assets of the problem and the analysis, and Dr. Saltman is in chaige of the biochemical studie. Miss Grove, a freshman who is j playing her first part in a college production, has appeared in numerous high school plays such as “You Can't Take It With You,” and "Jane Eyre.” One of the Best Miss Grover leels that “Summer and Smoke” is one of Tennessee Williams' best. "It is very deep and dramatic, with a great deal of pathos. All the characters are excellent,” she said .

Miss Booth, a senior and speech major, has had much college dramatic experience 1hat includes Shakespeare's “Romeo and Juliet,” “As You Like It," and "Much Ado About Nothing.” "Nellie Ewell is a delightful character. She is youth and vitality bubbling over. An actress can have fun playing a part like Nellie,” said Miss Booth. The role of Roger Doremus will be played by Sam Casson. Casson has had previous experience with Shakespeare and directed and played the lead in a high school production of "George Washington Slept Here.” His professional experience includes sum-merstock at the Duxburg Playhouse in Cape Cod.

Inmates Prolong Strike In Walia Walla Prison "Salaam Alelkum" was the greeting of Slieik Kenneth C. Reynolds as he appeared before the Faculty Club yesterday garbed ln the dress of an Iraq prince. Reynolds, head of the general engineering department. and his wife Ruth, related experiences of their visit to the Middle Fast. Reynolds was in residence at Baghdad on a Fulbright grant. "One of our acquaintances was a sheik, the head of a tribe which* controlled lands between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. We met him while traveling and became very friendly, in spite of the language harrier," said Reynolds. by United Press WALLA WALLA. Wash., Sept. 28 The hunger strike by 37 convicts continued at the Washington State Penilentiary yesterday, Warden Lawrence Delmore, Jr., said, contradicting reports that the strike had ended. "The strike Is definitely not over,” the warden said, “We expect the weaklings to drop out tomorrow, however. and the whole affair to end within a couple of days." The warden said he didn't expect any trouble from the convicts. "We’re not worrying about j them and we aren’t going to listen to any propositions,” Delmore ! said. “They'll come around.” The inmates, who have missed j seven consecutive meals since | Monday evening, have reportedly been drinking a lot of water. The convicts, all charged with spearheading riots in July and August at the prison here, are housed in a maximum security section of the institution. Delmore said they receive mail and visiting privileges the same as other convicts but are to lie kept confined to the cell block until after their trial on the prison riot charges. A major riot hrokf1 out at the prison July 5 when the convicts seized nine hostages and took over all the prison except the closely-guarded walls. The hostages were released unharmed 26 hours later when prison officials signed a nine-point “treaty” ending the riot. A new stale law provides up to 10 vcars added imprisonment for taking part in a riot. GOP Requests Silence During Ike s Illness by United Pres* The Republican Associates, an organization of top-ranking GOP industrialists and businessmen, today called on tbe party to cease discussing possible candidates for the presidency during the illnes of President Eisenhower. “Any talk among Republicans of candidacies or succession to the presidency is presumptions and is very poor taste,” the group's statement said. "No one can do anything other than speculate as to the extent of the president’s future activities. “We may be thankful indeed that his leadership resulted in such a well organized administration not depending as has been the case in the past on one-man leadership.” The statement also declared that the nation could be grateful that “the vice president lias been trained to act in the absence of the president and is thoroughly lamiliar with every asped of the president’s program and his poll-| cies.” , -Fire Breaks Out of Hand I BIG BEAR LAKE. Sept. 28-A brush and timber fire in Holcomb Valely, northwest of here, broke out of control again today, and 460 firelighters were working to bring the blaze under control.

Campus interviews conducted by the DT bear this out. Of nineteen Trojans interviewed aftT the New York Yankees’ 6-5 win yesterday, eight favored a series victory for the American League champs, and four picked the Brooklyn Dodgers as eventual victors. Seven others contributed odd comments. Trojans Interviewed Each or tne trojans interviewed was asked: “What are vcur let ic News Service: “I think it will lie over In seven games or less. I have an idea a New York team will win.” Jim Oros, ex-Trojan second baseman, now under contract with the Yankee farm club In Bingingham, New York: “I’m pleased to hear annul the Yank win I think both clubs looked good, hut I'll stick with the Yanks in six games ” Kent Hadley, Oros' teammate and first baseman on last year a tion: "Those Yankees again. They’re tough to beat. 1 like them all the way." Fred Coonradt. assistant professor of journalism: “I don’t care which team loses.” Frank Skeele, director of tlv SC news Bureau: “I'm a Dodger man myself. I think we have a chance to win."

Managing Editor Paul Wasserman. “I'm not enthusiastic. T don’t care either way. Rugby r my game " Reporter Marcia Bateman: “I didn't see yaitterday’s game I just don't know Well, don't look at me that way." Reporter Teina Irvine: "I'm for Ihe Dodgers. It's a cinch " Various memliers of the faculty and administration were polled, and their sage opinions differed radically, i Arnold Eddy, executive director of the SC Aiumni A>v^»- Rally Chairman I-eroy Barker: “I'm sure that the Brooks will I bowl ovvjr the Yanks in the next j four games.” After lengthy meditation, members of the Kappa Alpha Theta Kathleen Leavey, last year's Homecoming Queeji: "I hope the Yanks win.” The sheik visited the Reynolds’ home and made special calls on Easter and Christmas. Reynolds explained that although the land is Moslem, the Christian holidays are highly respected. Observe Customs "We had many interesting experiences while visiting his home. Mrs. Reynolds was the guest of honor and was served her coffee I irst: her emptied cup was then infilled and p«sscd among the guests, all drinking from the same cup. "Another time dinner consisted | of a whole, stullcd lamb. Mrs. Reynolds was expected to eat the sheep’s eye. Fortunately the sheik gave way to our Western tastes and overlooked Jhe custom. Mrs. Reynolds was dressed in the heavily-veiled costume of an Iraqi woman in deep "purdah." She wore an embroidered, full length sheath, several pieces of jewelry, and a shawl. Th shawl covered her lace and most of her body. "This is a practical headrover-ing," explained Mrs. Reynolds. "It protects the wearer from tho heavy dust." She then proceeded to demonstrate other veils—the practical veil, the religious veil, and the glamorous veil. “The greatest material accomplishment of our visit was establishing the first fluid mechanics laboratory in Iraq. We built it at Ihe College of Engineering in Baghdad really built it, from the ground up,” said Reynolds. Free ICiliilatlon "Education in Iraq is completely under-written hy the government. The primary schools, as well as the colleges, are financed from taxes. "In the College of Engineering, for example, the state pays lor tuition and room and board, and loans text books to the students. There are 11 colleges in Baghdad, all supported hy this system ” Reynolds explained that a development hoard controls a portion of the oil revenues, for state improvement purposse. Members of the board are the Premier and six advisors. One of these advisors is Wesley Nelson, an SC graduate, formerly of the Bureau of Reclamation. Progress Prevails “In Iraq progress is the prevailing theme. If I go hack In 10 or 15 years, I won’t know the place.” One of the areas of least progress is In the women’s realm. “Iraq is a man’s world," said Mrs. Reynolds. “However, all women are not In deep purdah: the exceptions are the hope of the women of Iraq.” Reynolds concluded by encour-a<»ine Americans to visit the Middle East. "It teaches us to understand these people and to stop crumbling about minor inconveniences in the United States. It teaches them thst all Americans are not typified by American movies. “As we learn to understand earh other’s wavs, we will have even brighter hones fo* the future of Tmo nnd *h*> MiHdlo Fas* ” Official Not ire The facilities of the Health Service and Infirmary are available to (I) students registered for ’Ive or less units, at least one of which Is under the Jurisdiction of the day division; (2) students working fur a degree and registered in University College and/or I'uiversity Park clasies meeting after 4:15 p.m. or Saturday If rrgistored for six or more units.
