Deaf Hard-of-Hearing Learn Art of Conversation

to ninth grade. "This is quite a
span and therefore each of the
campers needs individual atten-
tion," he said.
A test is administered during
the first week of camp to deter-
mine each pupil's language level,
Capano explained. This test is
given again at the end of the
camp season to measure achieve-
Included in the language train-
ing program are lessons in vo-
cabulary, sentence s t r u c t u r e,
grammar, reading and spelling.
Hold Classes
General speech improvement
classes for the deaf and hard-of-
hearing include articulation, voice
training, phrasing and emphasis
and other factors important for
speech intelligibility.
Another group class receives
training in written and oral ex-
pression. "All of them have ideas
in their mind, but they don't
know how to express them," Ca-
pano said.
Because so much of the educa-
tion for the deaf in their early
years is conducted on the con-
crete level, he teaches his more
advanced pupils to use abstract
ideas such as the concepts of in-
genuity and tolerance.
Teach Reading
"Speech (lip) reading- is made
an integral part of each lesson.
Much of the comprehension the
campers receive is through speech
reading," he noted.
An enthusiastic teacher, he is
spending his third summer at
Shady Trails, which is devoted to
improving the speech habits of its
94 campers, over half of whom
are stutterers.
Capano started the program for
the deaf and hard-of-hearing last
summer. Before the program, ther
camp had special "assemblies" for
the deaf and hard-of-hearing, but
never had a full-time language
training specialist.
He plans to continue work on a
doctor of philosophy degree at-the
University this fall.
Hawaiian Isle
Feels Effects
Of Hurricane
HONOLULU W) - The lush
little Hawaiian island of Kauai
lay torn and battered yesterday
in the wake of hurricane Dot.
The roaring storm flattened
buildings, flooded rivers and
blacked out power and communi-
cations facilities on the island
where the movie "South Pacific"
was filmed two years ago.
Extensive damage to the is-
land's sugar and pineapple plan-
tations was feared from Thurs-
day's blow.
There were no known casual-
ties among the 28,000 islanders.
The 40-foot yacht Esprit, which
left her moorings at Hanale to
seek shelter from the hurricane,
was unaccounted for. Only one
man was aboard.
Nearly 1,000 persons, including
200 tourists at the Coco Palms
Lodge, a favorite resort center,
fled from flooded low-lying areas
Thursday to emergency centers in
schools, armories and public
A weary civil defense worker on
Kauai said he believed damage
exceeded the one million dollars
loss caused by hurricane Nina in
December, 1957.
Hurricane Dot slammed' in
Kauai after sideswiping the other
Hawaiian Islands. Oahu, site of
Honolulu, was hit by heavy rains
and high winds. A few rooftops
were blown off.

THE CARRIAGE TRADE-Lined up and ready to go are these sightseeing carriages, which take Mackinac Island visitors on a gu
tour of the island. The carriages stand in the middle of the main street, for in this no-cars-allowed town, traffic is never a proble
unless two carriages meet on a narrow road. The bicycles against the curb in the background are the second favorite means of tra
portation on the island, which contains, in the motor vehicle category, only fire engines, an ambulance and a police Jeep,
