Stason Endorses Checks
On Administrative Action

An attempt should be made to
minimize the reliance placed
upon the discretionary wisdom of
administrators of state and fed-
eral agencies, Dean E. Blythe
Stason of the law school recom-
mended yesterday.
He offered this suggestion at
the second in the current annual
series of Thomas M. Cooley Lec-
tures. His topic for this address
was "Judicial Review and Other
Means of Supervision of Admin-
istrative Action."

THIS attempt to curb the use
of dscretionary powe's should be
carried as far as possible 'without
impairing administrative effi-
ciency, Stason continued.
At the present certain checks
are working to correct any erro-

neous actions in the field of ad-j
ministrative discretion. This
supervisory authority may be
found in the courts, legislatures,
administration and the people
Emphasizing the role of court
action Stason pointed out that
matters left to the discretion of
the agency are immune from ju-
dicial review, at least until the
rare stage of abuse of discretion or
other arbitrary action is reached.

JUDICIAL review may be based
only on law points, but this type
of action many times is undesir-
able because of time, cost and
publicity. It is the duty of the
court to keep a close "rein" on
administrative discretion but at
the present it appears that the
"horse has the bit between his
However, he added that legis-
lative action is gaining use as a
means of controlling and super-
vising certain types of adminis-
trative discretion. "An interest-
ing and unique legislative ar-
rangement for the scrutiny and
control of rule-making has re-
cently been put into effect in
the State of Michigan."
Stason described the public act
as providing for a legislative com-
mittee which checks all new rules
issued by state boards and com-
missions. The rules may be passed
by the committee, but if suspend-
ed they do not become effective
until the committee brings them
before the legislature for review.

"THE FACT that it is unique in
this country serves to give Michi-
gan great credit as an experimen-
tal proving ground for a very im-
portant check upon discretionary
rule-making powers," he con-

Speech and hearing, to most of
us, are as natural as the ability
to breath.
But for the 150 handicapped
children and adults enrolled in a
year at the University Speech
Clinic, it is often a long struggle
before they can feel at home in
ordinary social situations.
who simply have difficulty in being
understood to persons with serious
structural deficiencies.
They come to the Clinic through
their own request, or upon referral
by State and Federal agencies,
county health departments, child
guidance centers, and local service
organizations such as courts, so-
cial agencies and schools.
Every year 150 to 200 incoming
freshmen and transfer students
are found to have speech or hear-
ing difficulties through tests giv-
en during orientation week. Last
year the Speech Clinic, under the
direction " of Prof. H. Harlan
Bloomer, started a new program
under which it offers its services
to a limited number of students
without charge.
PATIENTS entering the Clinic
are given a thorough examination
in which a speech pathologist,
physician, clinician, social case
1* 1


worker, graduate assistants and
graduate students in speech cor-
rection participate.
A staff conference then co-
ordinates this information with
reports received from other
agencies, such as the University
Bureau of Psychological Serv-
ices, and plans a program for the
total needs of the"individual.
Thus the patient, besides receiv-
ing speech therapy, may be refer-
red to health, employment, mental
hygiene or social services.

PATIENTS ARE treated in sep-
arate divisions for children, adults,
aphasic adults and individuals
with hearing difficulties.
Many of the children have
nothing wrong with them phys-
ically, but their speech has not
matured as rapidly as the aver-
age. Others have structural dif-
ficulties, such as a cleft palate,
partial hearing loss, or injuries
to the nervous system.
Besides individual treatment,
group instruction and play situa-
tions are used to give the children
practice \ in speaking.
Classes and consultations are
also held for parents who want
to help their children to speak
THE ADULT division serves per-
sons of high school age and be-
yond. Some are individuals whose
employment status might be raised
if they spoke better, and are re-
ferred to the Clinic by the State
Division of Vocational Rehabili-
They are given five hours a day
of group and individual instruc-
tion. Social events, dramatic ac-
tivities and public speaking give
patients an opportunity to apply
the speech habits they have learn-
ed to social situations.
The aphasic division consists
of adults, mainly veterans, who
have had their ability to under-
stand or produce language im-
paired by an injury to the brain.
Though the intelligence of an
aphasic is usually not affected,
he may need to learn to speak
and to understand conversations
in much the same way as a child
learns his first words.
The Speech Clinic's program for
aphasics includes not only classes
in speech, but courses in reading,
writing, composition, English, dic-
tation, bookkeeping, mathematics,
business arithmetic, typing and
current events.
Attention is also given to the

screen, as she speaks into a cathode ray translator, which transforms sound waves into visible pat-
terns of light. The machine is designed to enable deaf persons to improve their speech by compar-
