HERE'S BALDY TALK IN As we travel through our life we usually set new goals before we quite achieve the ones we originally set out to accomplish, but a couple of weeks ago one of mine was completed. My oldest daughter graduated from the State University. She is now teaching deaf children in St. Louis at the same school our youngest attends. Many people have asked me why it is necessary to send our youngest so far away to school when we have a school for the deaf here in Minnesota at Faribault. The answer is, at the St. Louis school they can teach her to talk even though she can't hear. The only reason she can't talk is because she doesn't know what to say. There is nothing wrong with her vocal cords, it's just she has never heard how a voice sounds, so she has to be taught to use her voice even though she can't hear the sounds she is making. Being able to lip read and speak means she will be able to communicate with other people without using the sign language which is ordinarily only understood by other deaf people. In other words she will be trained to live I more normal life. C. R. H. were elected to the credit com mitlee. A review on his travels in Turkey was given by Robert Dufresne, community ambassador to Turkey several years ago. Board Looks Into Electric Heating Future developments in the home heating industry were discussed Tuesday by the Utilities 3oard.
