There was an article in the Wall Street Journal about Burt Ward and how his childhood encounter with Ross Martin had a positive effect on his life.
I have tried everything I can think to post with no luck. The Journal allows subscribers to view online but will not allow me to copy/paste.

'How real estate helped Burt Ward become Batman's Robin' was the article. If anybody can help me with suggestions I'm listening...

Signed: perplexed and slightly annoyed.

If you can't copy and paste, you might want to try a screenshot. Hopefully it would come out clear enough to be readable.

No luck.
If somebody else can help I would appreciate it.
Worst case scenario, I will send a hard copy to anybody who wants it.

I'm fresh out of suggestions; but if you can't figure anything else out, I'd really really love a hard copy. Big Ross fan here, don'tcha know.

Ward talks about it in his icky "My Life in Tights" tell-all pretty awful bio....

If I remember correctly, Ross taught him how to use his diaphragm in speaking so that his voice was deeper and projected better.

That is correct.
He was in his teens and left by his father to hand out brochures at an open house and Ross came by, looking at the property. When Ross heard him speak (high and squeaky) he had him take a deep breath, and from behind gripped him under his diaphragm.
Ross showed him how to speak from his diaphragm instead of his throat. Success!
If able to go back in time, I picture a plethora of people from this site speaking in squeaky voices, if happening to encounter Mr. Martin.
