Dr. Dell Henry,
Leads Speech
Defects Study,
Physiological Factors Are
Analyzed In Scientific
InvestigationBy Clinic
On the staff of the University
Speech Clinic, is Dr. L. Dell Henry,
who, besides her work as general phy-
sician, is conducting a series of inves-
tigations to find out what physiologi-
cal factors lie behind speech defects.
Up to the present time, most work
in this field has been theoretical and
very little biological or scientific
study has been made. It is the pur-
pose of the Speech Clinic to put itself
on a more scientific footing by means
of teir present research.
"Open Mind" Investigations I
"We are proceeding with our in-
vestigations with a purely open mind,"
Dr. Henry said yesterday, "so that we
shall be ready to develop anything
definite which we may find."
The most important work that is
being done is in bio-chemical re-I
search. Dr. Howard Lewis of the bio-'
chemistry department is cooperating
with the clinic in making the blood
This investigation just got under
way this fall. The Clinic is using
the Fasting Blood Test, which works
on the principle of taking blood when
it is at its basic metabolic condition.
Mapy Things Looked For
"In these blood tests," Dr. Henry
declared, "we are looking for many
things. A predominance of pholes-
terol would show that there is an in-
balance in the endocerine system.
This chemical substance with the
state of the blood sugar would ac-
count for the flabbiness in the speech
muscles. The condition of potassium,
calcium, and phosphorous is also be-
ing studied."
Dr. Henry came to the Speech
Clinic two years ago, but it wasn't
until }February, 1941, that she was
commissioned to devote part of her
time to investigation in this field.
"We have long realized," Dr. Henry
concluded, "that there is a lot which
is yet unknown about speech defects,
and we are doing our best to rectify
this situation as soon as possible."

Highway Accident
Helps Police Track
Licenseless Driver
When Clifford Kerr, 24-year-old
truck driver from Aurora, Ind.,
parked his truck in the middle of
US-12 highway three miles east of
Ann Argor early yesterday morning,
he had no idea police would discover
he was driving with an expired driv-
er's license.
Here's how it happened:
Lawrence Anthes, 42, of 661 Swith
St., left his home shortly after 6 a.m.
bound for Detroit where he is em-
ployed in one of the shops. Driving
a sedan, Anthes didn't see the parked
truck until it was too late to avoid
a collision.
Truck driver Kerr explained to po-
lice he had set flares on the road
but they must have gone out. A small
lighted lantern was' still burning
about fifty feet behind his truck.
Witnesses bore out Anthes' state-
ment that there were no flares or
lights on the truck to indicate a
warning to approaching drivers.
Asked to produce his license, Kerr
could not. Today he is being held in
the Washtenaw county jail for crim-
inal negligence.
Anthes-the one who did a good
turn for the police-suffered a broken
knee cap, fractured rib and severe
cuts on his neck. He is confined to
St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital.
