      18 Months Old, S. A. Baby Starts Career as Musician There have been child prodigy chess players, child prodigy musicians, and child prodigy authors, but San Antonio has something entirely new in juvenile geniuses. Master Warren Douglas Barton Jr., aged one and a half years, son of Mr. & Mrs. W. D. Barton, 402 Donaldson avenue, is able to whistle, and obligingly does so whenever requested. What's more, his parents say that he was whistling when only 1 year old, and they produce moving pictures to support their claim.
