HOPE IS RESTORED:
Speech Difficulties Treated
With New Improved Methods
Overcoming speech difficulties re-
culting from auditory impediments
by the use of new and improved edu-
cational methods has been announc-
ed by the University Speech Clinic.
According to Dr. Ollie L. Backus
of the speech department, acting Di-
rector of the Clinic, very little has
been developed here that is basically
new. "What is new is the combina-
tion, the emphasis and the methods
used," she said.

Howell, a respected legislative figure
and leader among his colleagues for
16 years, slowly read into the court
record this prepared statement:
"I realize I have made mistakes, as

tion I can make for good government

individual who starts the six weeks
intensive program of rehabilitation at
the Clinic, Dr. Backus explained, are
regarded with as much importance
as the training of the voice. "More
mental. hygiene is needed by these
folks who have to live in and adjust
to a hearing world. The hard of
hearing have lost many of the things
which are so commonplace that we
take them for granted."
Young and old pupils alike come
to the Clinic with a pessimistic at-
titude, but they soon gain a new faith
in themselves partly because rehabil-
itation includes actual demonstra-
tions of living itself. The Clinic has
a club in which officers are elected
every week, and there is plenty of
committee work calling for reports.
Skating parties are organized and a
social program is held every week.
Trainees in the University Clinic
are taught to use both lip reading
and the mechanical hearing aid.
Greater flexibility is obtained and
more normal speech results from the
use of this combination.
Poor Hearing Utilized
Often an individual can under-
stand voice melody or get the di-
rection of the speaker, although there
is not enough hearing ability to un-
derstand speech. "If a person has
only 10, 15, or 25% of normal hear-
ing, there is no sense in allowing
that fraction to remain dormant and
unused. Common sense alone sug-
gests that these people even more
than the normal individual, needs
have. The mere purchase of a hear-
ing aid will not hip them. They
to make efficient use of what they
must have training in amplification
of speech before they are ready even
to consider the use of a hearing aid.
Only after such instruction will an
individual hearing aid be useful."

Cannot Relax War Effort
"Our national responsibility today
is to bring the war to a victorious
conclusion, We hope the end is nea
but because of that fact the effort
must be all the greater. We cannot
relax for if we do it gives our enemie
an opportunity to recover from th
staggering blows they are receiving
"We have our foes down. Let us bc
sure that no act of ours permits them
"The manufacturers of the United
States, together with their workers.
have provided the tools with which
great successes have been won. They
must continue to do so. No machine
or person needed for work can be
spared as long as our armed forces
have a need that has not been met.
When this has been done our mills.
our factories and our shops may turn
to the pursuits of peace.
Reconversion as Soon as Possible
"Government is prepared to release
you for reconversion at the earliest
possible moment. Its plans to this
end have been made.
"I am confident that your members

they have been doing.
"I am equally confident that they
will cooperate as fully after this war
in maintaining high levels of pro-
duction and employment so that all
Americans may enjoy the economic
benefits of peace."
