Monday in the University High

Humans Decide Policy Success
"The success or failure of foreign
policy depends upon the decisions of
human beings, not economic determi-

average citizen is not fully aware of
the details of operation of the Amer-
ican system of foreign policy," he

Dr. Howard Y. Mc lusky, of the
psychology department, addressed the
Conference in an afternoon meeting
Monday. He spoke on "Youth and
the Post-War World."
"In my judgment," Dr. McClusky
said, "the status of the American
youth will be affected in three vital
areas following the war. These areas
are military, educational and eco-
"The international situation will
compel the United States to main-
tain a large military establishment.
For this reason the coming genera-
tion of American youth will undoubt-
edly face a period of compulsory mil-
itary service. For the first time there-
fore, the military authorities will
share with educators a major respon-
sibility for the nurture and develop-
ment of American youth."

Open House Demonstrates Work

Students and local residents had
an opportunity yesterday to observe
some of the methods used in rehab-
ilitation for twenty-nine children
suffering from speech defects at one
of tVle first open houses of its kind
sponsored by the University Depart-
ment of Speech.
Operated by the Institute for
Human Adjustment and the De-
partment of Speech, the Speech
Clinic has as its purpose the pro-
viding of facilities for research
and, teacher training in speech
This summer the Clinic's program
is designed primarily for the rehabil-
itation of cleft palate cases, although
the enrollment includes stutterers,
spastics and children who are hard.
of hearing.
Children Divided into Age Groups
.; anging from 7, to 20 years, the
boys and girls are divided into two
age groups. Each child receives in-
dividual as well as group treatment.
The students, who spend five hours
every day at the Clinic, are givenI
every opportunity to put their newly
acquired speech habits into actual
"We cannot afford to work only
on the speech disorder of the indi-
vidual," Dr. Ollie Backus, assis-

tant professor of speech and acting
manager of the Clinic, said yester-
day. "Many of those children are
suffering from social maladjust-
ment and personality problems,
and if we fail to rehabilitate the
'whole' individual, removing their
speech defects will not solve the
entire problem."
Most of the cleft palate cases have
been repaired with an operation by
the Department of Oral Surgery un-
der the direction of Dr. John Kem-
per. The work of the Speech Clinic
begins where surgery leaves off.
Corrective Activities Planned,
Numerous activities are planned
for speech correction. The children
participate in blowing exercises by
practicing on soap bubble pipes and
whistles and by blowing up balloons.
In this way they learn how to send
air through their mouths rather
than through their noses. In the
group speech class they practice
making various speech sounds. The
ear training course teaches them to
distinguish between correct and in-
correct sounds. Even music classes
are included for getting correct
speech habits into practice.
After just two weeks of work at
the Clinic, many of the children

have already improved both in
their speech and their social out-
"Some of these children who were
painfully shy before, are becoming
perfectly willing to talk to people.
A few have even obtained part-time
work," Dr. Backus said. "We empha-
size the fact that they are poten-
tially normal people and the will
have to learn to take their place in
society along with evryone else," she
Students Conduct Club
One feature of particular interest
to visitors at the Clinic yesterday was
the business meeting conducted by
the older group of students. The
"Up and At It" Club, as they call
themselves, was organized primarily
to give every person a chance to talk,
and in spite of their speech defects
every person does participate in the
hoar-long business meeting.
The Club operates just like any
student organization, with a pres-
ident; secretary, social' chairman,
program chairman, and even a
speech chairman-whose job is to
ring a bell every time someone
makes a mistake on a word he has
learned to pronounce correctly.
The Clinic is' housed in its own
building at 1007 E. Huron. Included
in the 29 room house are classrooms,
laboratories, and a library.
Individuals may come to the Clin-
ic at any time to observe the speech
rehabilitation work and groups may
visit by appointment.

"The people of the Dominican
Republic are very familiar with the
North American mind, so I haven't
been surprised at anything," Dr. J.

the Department of State, said laugh-

lications of various universities
throughout the country, said that
his country has been campaigning to
foster inter-American relations
through compulsory study of English
in schools there.
Students Like To Learn English
"We feel that if everyone in this
hemisphere could speak both English
and' Spanish we will be able to
build a bridge between the Spanish
and Anglo-Saxon cultures.
"Our students are delighted to

learn English," he said, "because we
see your movies, and hear your
broadcasts, and of course those who
don't know English can't understand
"We have also started an extensive
campaign against illiteracy," he
said, "and at the present time we
have more than 4,900 schools for
adult education scattered through-
out the country.
