Television Pilot Project May Lead
to Subtitling for Deaf Viewers

Thanks to the efforts of the
mother of a hearing-impaired
teen-ager, and the backing of
the League of Jewish Wom-
en's Organizations, 200,000
hard - of - hearing Detroiters
may be able to enjoy televi-
sion.
Mrs. Richard Mitchell,
chairman of a special League
committee on television sub-
titles for the hearing im-
paired, announced this week
that Channel 50 will present
a pilot program 10 a.m. Mon-
day on the "Detroit Today"
show. Subtitles will be used
for the program, featuring
Sharon Brown interviewing
Mrs. Mitchell.
Mrs. Mitchell, who has been
active in promotion of pro-
grams for the deaf, took a
leading role in arranging for
Jewish education for hard-

of-hearing children. Her own
son was Bar Mitzva last year
at Cong. Shaarey Zedek.
She pointed out that sub-
titles for television programs
would mean that some 200,000
persons, from deaf children
to hard-of-hearing adults and
elderly persons, could watch
programs on public and edu-
cational stations in the area.
There are some 24000,000
such persons in the U.S., she
said.
An important part of the
pilot project will be the re-
sponse of television viewers.
Mrs. Mitchell pointed out
that completion of a survey
will assist the station in
knowing what is the demand
for such a subtitling service.
The station wants to know
if the subtitles are helpful to
understanding the programs,
what kind of programs could
use subtitles and if viewers
would be interested in volun-
teering services to subtitle
programs. Replies may be
sent to Mrs. Sharon Brown,
Detroit Today, WKBD-TV,
PO BOX 359, Southfield
48075.
For information, call Mrs.
Mitchell, 541-7218. Assisting
Mrs. Mitchell on the League
project are Mesdames Henry
Berris, Louis Redstone and
Jules Sanders. Marian Shif7
man is president of the

Mrs. Alfred Lakin stands before an empty baby bassi-
nette in the nursery of Sinai Hospital—symbolic of the work
she is doing with 200 women volunteers to publicize the
Tay-Sachs screenings 10 a.m.-4 p.m. June 23 and 30 at
the United Hebrew Schools building. Organizations repre-
sented are Bnai Brith, the junior division of the Jewish
Welfare Federation, Women's Giuld of Sinai Hospital and
Bnai Brith Girls. Tay-Sachs disease most often afflicts
infants born to couples of Eastern and Central European
Jewish ancestry. Children with the disease are doomed to
certain death after at most only four to five years. "We
can determine who the innocent carriers are and prevent
a genetic disaster if the community will turn out for the
simple screening tests," Mrs. Lakin said. The Bnai Brith
girls will be providing baby-sitting services to make it
easier for married couples to undergo the screening process.
In addition to the 200 women, numerous doctors and nursing
personnel and technicians are volunteering their services
for the program. Participants in the Tay-Sachs screening
program are Sinai Hospital and the Genetic Counseling
Clinic of Henry Ford Hospital, under the financial sponsor-
ship of the Jewish Community Federation (United Jewish
Charities), with the cooperation of the March of Dimes.
Other women helping to direct the work of volunteers are
Mesdames Sherwin Sokolov, Tay-Sachs chairman for Bnai
Brith Women; Alan H. Finer, Tay-Sachs chairman for the
junior division of the JWF; David Dunsky, president of
the Women's Guild of Sinai Hospital; and Andrew Berger,
chairman of the Tay-Sachs speakers bureau.
