It is silent, bleak, and lonely humorless, and isolated from many of the joys that we who hear take : or granted. Impregnable walls blockade the joyous sounds of living from entering t h a t world of desolate silenue. One man can well be considered the emancipator uf the deaf for having liberated thousands from the confines of this empty, anxious, frustrating, and often, friendless existence. Thnl man is Dr. Julius I w h o. against overwhelming odds. broke through t h e barriers of medical disbelievers and unselfishly taught surgeons it was that she had again heard that she had missed most, she said, "I cried then and still cry every time I hear the tinkle ;of my spoon as I stir my coffee." Our entire l i f e revolves around the simple sounds that we normally take for granted. The laughter of children, the doorbell, a rustle of a program at a concert are part of tlie myriad sounds that make contact with pulsating h u m a n i t y and give viability to our lives. This gift was given lo many by Dr. Julius Lcmpert. POETRY CORNER In the poem "ThanHtopsis."

If West shows up with the king, he cannot stop you from tricks, while if k:ng. you are sure of ten tricks. Now let's assume East has the ace of spades. He wins thi queen and continues with a spade w h i c h you, of course, dirt. You then win the ntxt spade and must now choose between a diamond or a club finesse.
