Dr. John Law Says Efforpts
Are Being Made To Cure
Nervousness, Defects
Nervousness apd "badness" in chil-
dren have only recently been classed
correctly as behavior problems and
attempts to cure them made, Dr.
John L. Law of the University Hos-'
pital told a radio audience in theI
last of the parent education talks
over WJR yesterday. This was also
the closing program in the semester's
broadcasting activities.j
"Nail biting, stammering, grimaces
or talking during sleep were called
nervousness and were treated by the
family doctor. Badness included,
misdemeanors like lying, stealing or
truancy and such displays were, man-
aged by parents with the aid of
council from the minister." It has
been through the aid of the social1
service worker, the psychologist and
the psychiatrist that the change in
treatment has largely come about,
he said.
Speech Defects Common
"Speech defects among children
are much more common than we
imagine," Dr. Law continued. "About
one per cent of all children stutter
but this does not include other forms
of vocal disability. The inability to
give proper expression to ideas leads
to reactions of inferiority or to ly-
ing, stealing or truancy in order to
maintain one's place in the estima-
tion of the group," he declared.
Dr. Law welcomed the formation
of the University's Institute for Hu-
man Adjustments, which has been
formed to solve problems of speech
defects from the point of view of
early detection. and treatment and
prevention of broken personalities.

For Summer
SchoolReady
First bulletins anno-uicing the 43rd

successive summers most of the pre-
scribed courses of the first two years
of work leading to a degree in the
Law School. The sessions will begin
June 21 and last until Sept. 1.
Courses to be offered are Criminal
Law, Judicial Administration, Equity,
public legal problems, Business Asso-
ciations, forms of private law and

meet six hours a week.
There will be 12 members of the
faculty. From other schools these
