J, Pollard was installed as sponsor, and each was presented sorority pins during the Installation by Mrs. Francis Oammtll, sorority president. The Installation was a part of a combined social and business meeting at the home of Mrs, Jack Owens. Miss Alice Marie Ross, First Grade teacher at Ynrbro and a student of speech correction, spoke- to the group. Corrective Steps UrKftd Miss Ross pointed out that there was cause for alarm when chlldrcr were slow starting to talking, since there was possibly a hearing defect She stressed eurly checks since the aura between three and five were the ones when greatest correctiv progress could be made. Miss Ross said that somtimes child's spcecli was made nnlnlellig ible merely because he would sub slilute only a few sounds, and tha the defect should be corrected earl before It had serious repercussions < personality or social development. The speaker, who was'enrollcd I speech correction classes at the Un ivcisity of Michigan last year nnd will return for further study this mimer, said that "quack" schools correcting stuttering were one f the chief concerns of accredited icech correction authorities. She explained how methods such s squeezing a rubber ball held n the hand would stop stuttering >y taking the victims mind from Is speech, temporarily, but that f ter the habit patterns were formed ich corrective pleasures lost their alue. She advised the study of the ccredlted speech correction experts lanupl, prior to tackling a speech orrecllon problem.

According to the outcome of the test, their matrmgc was a mighty puoi risk. Hci husband Is an only child, and v/orse yet, tile child of divorced parents. When they married she was earning more than he was—for he was starting his career nt the bottom. They are of different religious faiths. And to add the final handicap to the marriage, her mother lives with them during part of each year. According to most marriage experts, all those facts are serious drawbacks to a happy marriage. This wife says she Is glad she it proposed to issue S3,150.000 of I mortgage bonds. interim notes exchangable of 70,000 shares of preferred stock having a par value of $25 per share and 140,000 shares of common stock having a par, value of $D per share and 85.500,000 principal amount, firs named her husband. It might have .r-ared her. But being Ignorant of all the chnnce.s Tgninst their being haplly nan-ierf, this couple went ahead with complete faith that their marriage would be happy and last a lifetime. 'Here svc had all those terrible iroblems and didn't realise how .erious they were." the wife says | with a chuckle. ''So we just met our problems as they came along and they never seemed Insurmountable." Love Can Ilalauce "Poor Risk" I tell you that story because in spite of all the experts' advice young men and women keep right falling in love with and marrying what the experts would cal "poor risks." But if two persons are deeply in love, if they take it for granted that they'll stay married for life, it they meet tlieir problems as they come along, they'll probably get along all right. They may not be Ideally happy all the time. But few people are—whether married to a good risk or ft poor one.
