Hard-of-Hearing Children
Instructed at Speech Clinic

The average observer, watching two
and three year olds at the Speech
clinic sway in time to music and play
patty-cake, would not realize that
these activities are part of a method
designed to teach them to speak.
The Speech Clinic, experiment-
ing in methods of teaching the
pre-school deaf to speak, combines
instruction with play, Miss Har-
riet Dunn, a clinician, explained.
The youngsters, all at least par-
tially deaf, have never heard enough
words associated with objects to ac-
quire speech and language. Clini-
cians must help the children to ac-
quire a normal child's beginning vo-
cabulary, Miss Dunn said. Most chil-
dren begin early to say words like,
mamma, daddy, kitty, and bow-wow,
Miss Dunn explained, and these are
the primary associations two year-
olds must learn.
Hearing must first be supple-
mented with visual cues that will
enable the children to understand
what is being said, she asserted.
A foundation for instruction in lip-
reading is given, and children are
taught to watch the clinician's face
intently to make the most of their
residual hearing. Children's hands
are placed against clinician's cheeks
partly to concentrate attention on
the speaker's face, and partly to
feel the vibration of the spoken
The six week term of instructior
for the pre-school deaf, is divided into
three periods totalling not more thar
two hours a day.
In one class of play-instruction ea:
phones are used. The purpose of this
class is to accustom the children to

the phones, and to estimate how
great the hearing loss is. When the
music, amplified by the ear phones is
played, the children hold up their
fingers indicating when they first
hear it. By saying "all gone" when
the music is turned off, and by keep-
ing time with the music, the children
unconsciously give further indica-
tions of how much they hear.
A second class period is devoted
to instruction without ear phones.
Lip-reading, watching, and word
associations are a part of this play-
disguised instruction. Children are
called on to "Put mamma in the
house." They must watch the in-
structors attentively to know when
they are being called on. The word
mamma is varied with other words
like daddy, boy, girl, kitty, bow-
wow, for which they must learn as-
sociations; and house is varied with
car or truck to test lip-reading
Individual instruction is designed
to teach the children more specific
issociations. Each is taught to call
ais particular set of parents mamma
rnd daddy in a class where the in-
7tructor and child carry on a con-
7ersation about photographs of
parents. They use the words yes and
io when instructors put matched or
unmatched color square on top of one
One child, frustrated after asso-
,iating mamma with objects whose
tames he did not know, has learned
Mickey Mouse, the names of in-
:tructors and the names of colors.,
Xt present he confuses blue andI
;Veen, not because of inability to lip-
read, Miss Dunn said, but because
the colors are similar.


Are Available
For Specialists
Tremendous opportunities are
available in professional fields for
college graduates who have special-
ized training which enables them to
secure a job in little known voca-
tions, Dr. Frank Fletcher and Dr.
Frederick Harris of the Bureau of
Psychological Service said in a lec-
ture yesterday.
Specialized Fields
Dr. Fletcher said that less than 50
per cent of college majors enter the
field for which they are prepared
but rather choose jobs in related
fields of work. He pointed out that
each college subject can be divided
into a number of specialized fields of
study which college students must
be aware of when choosing their fu-
ture vocations.
Dr. Harris pointed out the little
known vocational possibilites for sci-
ence, social studies and language ma-
jors which involve specialized train-
Available Jobs
"There are jobs available to both
men and women in Michigan and on
the federal level where specialized
training is necessary and whose sal-
aries are not high but offer secur-
ity," Dr. Harris said.
He pointed out that during the
depression, fevi specialists were un-I
employed because of their high de-
gree of skill which could not be re-
placed. Dr. Harris emphasized the
importance of students investigat-
ing their fields of interest by talking
to men in the professions, exploring
vocational material in the library
and by approaching spare time jobs
from the point of view of job analy-
Dr. Dorothy M. Sherman and Miss
Wilma Eldersveld of the Bureau of
Psychological Service will discuss
"Vocational Occupations for' Wo-
men" at 4:30 p.m. today in Rm. 1025
Angell Hall.
Petrillo Calls
Chicago Radio
Station Strike
CHICAGO, May 28 -()- James
C. Petrillo called a strike at a Chi-
cago radio station today, and U. S.
District Attorney J. Albert Woll im-
mediately started an investigation to
determine whether the Lea law had
been violated.
The fiery president of the AFL
American Federation of Musicians
called three studio record librarians
off the job at radio station WAAF,
and told reporters he "expected pros-
ecution" and was "ready to face the
Petrillo said he called the strike
because the station had refusel to
employ three additional librarians.
The Lea bill, enacted last April and
sometimes called the "anti-Petrillo"
law, provides up to one year impris-
onment and $1,000 fine for any union
which compels or attempts to compel
aroadcasters to hire more employes
than are needed "to perform actual
Attorneys for the radio station im-
mediately arranged a conference with
Woll, who announced he would pros-
ecute the musicians' union chief if
any violation of the law is shown.
Petrillo, who also heads the Chi-
cago Federation of Musicians, called
one of his infrequent press confer-
ences after ordering the strike.

Doctors Should v
Know Uses of
Drugs - mFinch
Colleges of medicine should teach
medical students to know drugs and
medicine, its action and use on the
human body as well as disease, sur-
gery, anatomy and diagnosis, Carrett
F. Emch, Toledo pharmacist and
member of the Ohio State Board of
Pharmacy, said yesterday at the
Twelfth annual Pharmaceutical Con-t
ference of the University College ofI
Stating that medical colleges are(
telling their students they can pickt
up that part of their education when
they start in practice, Emch said
that pharmaceutical houses are1
awake to this fact and are training
their sales people to sell the doctor1
on specialty medication.J
Pharmacists can do much to ob-
tain the confidence of physicians by
carrying only the highest quality
pharmaceutical, chemical, and bio-
logical products available, by having,
adequate stocks at all times, and by
maintaining reference librries so
that pharmacists may answer any
questions of doctors concerning
drugs, Emch said.

rTuberculosis X-Ray
Results Announced
LANSING, May 28-(P)-Five years
for mass tuberculosis X-ray surveys
in Michigan have screened 500,000
persons, Dr. George A. Sherman, dir-
ector of the state health department's
tuberculosis control bureau, declared
Addressing the annual meeting of
the Michigan Tuberculosis Associa-
tion, Dr. Sherman asserted that of

units last year 1.4 per cent showed
signs of tuberculosis and 76 per cent
of those were diagnosed as having

conventional sequence in that the
illustrations, a large proportion of
which were from his own pen, were
prepared in advance of the writing
of the text.
This has resulted in an exceptional-
y close integration of text and fig-
ures. Dr. Patten declares that in
the writing of the text he has pre-
sented the processes of human de-
velopment "not as a series of still
pictures of selected stages but as a
story of dynamic events, with the
cmphasis on their sequence and sig-
In the years during which the
book has been taking shape, Dr.
Patten submitted the typewritten
manuscript of each chapter as it
was completed to selected medical
students for their criticism and
suggestions. He found this proced-
ure "very helpful" in keeping the
bock readable and clear.
Thistcooperation on the part of his
students is recorded in a special sec-
tion of acknowledgements in which
Dr. Patten expresses his indebtedness
to many co-workers, especially his
colleagues in the University's ana-
tomy department.
April's Tricks
Fvail 1To)Faze
Health Service
Despite the sudden changes in
weather during April and the un-
looked for cold spells, there was a
decrease of 169 in the number of
Upper Respiratory Infections seen at
the University Health Service, al-
though other illnesses showed a slight
increase over the number in March.
Illnesses which showed the most
marked increase were appendicitis
which increased from 10 cases in
March to 29 in April, and infectious
mononucleosis which increased from
19 to 40 cases.
Clinic visits made by students dur-
ing April showed but slight increase
over those made in March. This was
also true of the number of bed pati-
ents both at the University Hospital
and Health Service.
