the contraetors, "if you can prove
your point we may crack down on
the University."
The -committee of which War-

er with the State Senate finance
committee, does most of the pre-
liminary work in apportioning
state funds to such projects as the
University s emergency building
program.

(Continued from page 1)
A device called the "cathode-
ray speech- translation," located
at the Rackham School of Special
Education at Michigan Normal,
transforms speech sounds with
the speed of light into a visual
pattern on a fluorescent screen.
The translator is contained in
a black metal cabinet about' six
feet high. The screen on which
the speech patterns are flashed
moves at a controlled speed past
a small window in the cabinet.
The result is a momentary speech
pattern exactly like the perman-
ent one produced by the specto-
graph.
It is estimated that with the
use of this equipment the deaf
can be taught a basic vocabulary
in about the same time it takes
to master an unfamiliar foreign
language.
After extended class-room use,
they will be made available in
improved, semi-portable models to
all deaf persons.
An important use of the new in-
struments is to teach the deaf,
and others, to speak properly. For-
merly, a teacher had to spend
hours with each pupil to teach
him how to form words with his
lips, teeth and tongue. A new
method being worked out by Prof.
Kopp and his co-worker, Miss
Harriet Green, assistant professor
of special education at Michigan
Normal, enables one instructor to
teach several pupils at one time,
and to do it better and faster.

Christmas party.
In addition to offering manual
recreation to the hospitalized chil-
dren, the funds obtained through
the Annual Christmas Drive have
made it possible to set up a book
shelf and record library of works
selected for children of all ages.
