University Speech Clinic To Aid
Incoming Students With Defects

'Happy'And'DearAlben'Make Up

Cards detailing the availability
of the speech clinic have been mailed
to 230 incoming students with cor-
rectable speech defects, Dr. Harlan
H. Bloomer, director of the clinic,
announced yesterday.
The help of the clinic is open to
anyone who applies up to the limit
of the institute's capacity, Dr. Bloom-
er said. New students on campus
had their first contact with the work
of the institute when they took speech
and hearing tests during the physical
examination. Other activities in-
clude research, training and rehabili-
A group of students is now meet-
ing for stuttering correction at 3
p.m. Monday and Friday and at 7:30
p.m. Tuesday arid Thursday. Articu-
lation drills are also held at 3 p.m
Monday. and Friday. In addition to
these classes, many students receive
individual attention. In these classes,
the instructor aims to help students
so that they can take part in correc-
tion in classes without calling atten-
tion to their defects.
The state is mainly trying to con-
duct a preventative program so that
the defect is corrected before it is
habitual. To this end, surveys of
school children are conducted to de-
termine the number having speech


defects and to make recommenda-
tions for improvement.
Parental neglect of children's
speech problems result from a com-
Imon belief that suchtdefects will be
outgrown. The 230 incoming stu-
dents are enough proof that such is
not the case, Dr. Bloomer said.
In addition to these duties, the
clinic serves as a referral agency-for
;he University hospital, the Michigan
Child Guidance Bureau, the Psycho-
logical Institute, and the Social Serv-
ice agencies.

New Cooperative
House For Men
Brings Total To Six
Stalker Cooperative House, 333 E.
Ann St., has been opened this sem-
ester to bring the number of boys'
cooperative houses on campus to a
total of six.
The idea o having another house
originated from a discussion group on
cooperatives, one in a series of talks
on social problems conducted by the
Wesleyan Guild. Although most of
the 19 members are prominent in
Stalker Hall and Wesleyan Guild ac-
tivities, the membership is not re-
stricted to those of Methodist de-
nomination, according to Douglas
MacNaughton, Grad, president.
Any boys who are interested in
joining may do so by applying to Burr
J. French, '42E, Burr Clifford, Grad.,
or MacNaughton, who .are on the
personnel committee, or by calling
Other boys' cooperative houses are
the Congress House, Rochdale House,
Robert Owens House, Michigan Soc-
ialist House and Disciples Guild.
