Teaching The Deaf Less lip-reading and attempt at oral instruction for the deaf, more finger- spellittt and sign ami picture language were advocated at a convention ^ of the Ontario Association for the Deaf in Toronto the other day. "In any educational system for the deaf the" oral process alone cannot achieve the objective of preparing a deaf child for the responsibilities it must as, HI i me after school." swil Robert 10. McBrien, university graduate, himself totally deaf. Me believes that it is a mistake to take the whole time of the deaf_child trying to learn how to be an imitation of his hearing comrades, On I he other band, methods natural to tbe deaf should be used as far as possible. New theories of education, for nonnal nw well as for variously handicapped children and adults, are siM'inging up everywhere. "Many will be tried out and n few good ones will survive because of proved usefulness. This idea that the deaf should give more of their school time to methods by which they learn easily sounds reasonable. It docs not throw away liprending a.nd- effort, to npouk — it mut'oly lays more stress on other moans. Do You Remember?

(International) WALTER WINCHELL Coast-To-Coast (Copyright, 1946. by The Hearat Corporation) HOODLUMS ARE HAMS— Out- of the old Chicago hoys, now doing the bowl he car, in Now York, sIc.lcKl up to me and in a hoarse whisper trom the near side of. his mouth, said: "Word's around that Al is due any.hour," Al, of course, could he no one but Capone. His presence would bo nothing; to start a panic. Capone has many legitimate business interests. Though he muscled in on t'h'ern in his violent clays, they are respectable enterprises and ho has the stock, socked away. Despite reports that the remnants of his hoodlum empire are active again in Chicago,. 'I don't think Scarfaco. is back in person running the rackets. Alcatraz took most of him out of him; he is sick, well off, has a growing- son whom he idoli/.es, and can bask In his THorlda hacienda on a handsome income, Capone, always ruthless and bold, was also it. businessman. His real estate and auditing and even artillery departments were run with executive efficiency. I have read from time to time that Jack Guzick was his treasurer. If so, that happened after my happy Chicago days. When I knew Jack, he .was a chiseling, short-changing waiter in a speakeasy run by his brother, Harry, who was a fat little brotheJ operator as well. It was my business to know such people. They were "copy." When I began to specialize in underworld stories, my bride was scared. She thought these desper- ate'crim'inals would kill me for "exposing-" them. In truth, they loved it—kept scrapbooks like ham ac- ors and treasured their "notices." I got many art exclusivs inside talc because the bad babies were hot to see their names in print. It built them up with their own kind and. it fed Micir distorted egos. . "Duffy the Goat" had done a i stretch in Michigan City, Ind., for Vetndenberg Won't Seek Presidency, Say Friends Washington Cuts Payroll Swollen by War Agencies Life should be pleasant'in .a place witli a mimo like Pretty Prairie, Kansas!. Special to Central Press • WASHINGTON—Friends .of Senator Arthur Vandenbarg (R) of Michigan are convinced that the midwcstern "elder statesman" of the GOP on foreign policy has abandoned any desire to be his party'a presidential candidate in 1948. Six years ago In Philadelphia, Vandcnberg was an inside runner for the nomination the Republicans finally bestowed upon the late Wendell Willkic. . But now he admits age would be slightly against him as a presidential nominee. Two years hence .he will be 63. Hence, Vandenberg reportedly has> set his sights on the biggest game outside of the presidency itself—^secretary of state. That, of course, is the senior and all-powerful cabinet post now handled by his old Senate colleague, Jimmy Byrnes. Vandenbcrg has served in Paris conference! with Byrnes and sounded United States foreign policy keynotes on the floor of the Senate. * « * * • THE GOVERNMENT 1s making progress in paring its war-swollen payrolls. Paid employment In the continental United Sonator States,,as far as civilians working for the execu- Vondonborg live branch of the government are concerned, is showing a steady decrease. A total of 37,404 men and women were separated from federal jobs during the month of June, The most sizable decreases were shown in the War Shipping Administration, the War and Navy departments and other agencies directly connected with the grim business of war. More women are leaving government jobs than men. The congestion is by no means entirely relieved, since at the end of June the executive branch had 2,322,451 employes in the continental United States and 448,600 overseas. - * « • • • MANY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS feel that the new price decontrol board faces a virtually "Impossible" task in trying to determine by Aug. 20 whether meat and dairy products should go back under price ceilings.

He returned to his haunts, went to the Cadillac (Hotel; barber shop, where he had.staShed his gun before he went away. The place had changed hands. He got shaved, then opened the cash register, and there, sure enough, was his pearl-handled gat. He took it and stuck up the barber. Then he went across the .street to a saloon run by a bird named Jimmy Leather, as tough as his name. Ho didn't know Duff, .who ordered ;i drink, remarked that it wns a cozy place—he thought Leather needed a partner—well, he had one. The Goat took his coat off, walked behind 1 the bar, moved the "rod" into his hip-pocket. Next day, painters put "Duffy & Leather" on the window—and so it remained, until the Goat killed • a second-class puff upstairs over JL red-headcd^madam named Frisco Kate. The Goat was a hound for. publicity. He : us'cd to lie in wait for me in front of the Hearst Building, fall in step, complain I had been neglecting him. . I told him there was nothing to write—he had been uniitcrcstingly quiescent, or words to that effect. That night a touring-cnr (remember)? swung through one of the "levee" streets. There was a blast- through' .ts mica curtain. "Terry" Te.ranova,. a gambler, was killed—a mystery. Next clay the Goat phoned me— "You can say I done that" he .-aid. "I won't pet in no trouble. 1 fixed an airtight alibi." I published that Duffy was "suspected." He was picked up by the dcks. He had his alibi, and it stuck. He had witnesses to prove that he had spent the whole evening in dalliance with a lady—who happened to be the wife of the man who was riddled! Another kcoii publicity-hound was "Bijr Jim" Colosimo, really the f:i- thfr und founder of modern racketeering, a smart cookie who foresaw the clgimtic possibilities of Prohibition, and who Imported Cn~ pone (then Al Brown) from Brooklyn. ..-...- Coloslmo luid a ciife (still opo.rat- ing) which' was his headquarters, blind und stusro. Impeccably dressed in swallow-tall nnd striped trousers, he hosted It und met rhc. best ns well as the towest people. He h:id a long, sordid record in vice, hlnck- mnll and corruption , but you'd novor have known It to sit at his table, for lie was affable Intelligent, und a connoisseur of flnc music. When Jim chucked over his wife, Victoria, who hud come with him' from Sicily and w-ortocd with him In his early days of very lowdown livelihood It WHS to marry Dale Winter, a beautiful young choir singer. On his honeymoon. In West Baden, Ind., he had himself and his bride photographed in varied happy poses and sont the pictures to all the Chicago paper*. But there was less romantic material. I, .who was In his place seven nights a week would write stories tying him In with the growing gangserlsm ' which was beffinnlnv that era of. blood, and. violence which later gave Chicago a wry reputation around the world. I bluntly named. Colosimo. as. the prime mover behind the criminal structure. But I was his favorite reporter. He hud a pollticaJ drag that made him virtually Immune. But he became so notorious, people came long distanced ju-M. to sec what this phenomenon looked like. He ate that up. I was with him until 2 n. m,, the morning he was assasMnntcd in his ofrico in that cafr, before noon. The first edition had boon brought in, 'and there was my yarn on Page 1— w;lh' his picture. There had' been mure gang killings. I wrote that the Colosimo mob had rubbed, out some intruders who "strayed over the barriers of their own (erritory"—which had lx:on fixed by formal treaty in a meet^ Ing of gang leaders, representing the several sections of the city—a "peace, conference", .in 4 leading "loop" hotel. .Jim read it laid down the paper, looked .up at me. • • •Tm surprised at. you," be said.
