Child Training Expert. Dear Mr. Myers: Having read your articles for some time, and being very well impressed with some of them and quite naturally not agreeing with others, I was tremendously interested in your recent article regarding deafness. This is an ailment which is causing so much, distress, that I feel impelled to write' you. You may use my letter in. your column if you wish, but I want to commend you, in any · event, for bringing this important message to the notice of your readers. 'Although not yet 40, I have been partially deaf for 20 years. In all jiat time I have asked, 'What did _'ou say?' and 'I beg your pardon?' so often that if I had only a penny for every request for repetition, I wc-uld be quite wealthy . . . The agony I suffered as a child, as a young women, and even now, was so intense that on several occasions I tried to commit suicide. Life didn't seem worth living when those closest to me hadn't the tolerance to recognize that I was the sufferer in not hearing, rather than they . . . . No Treatment Helps. "I married a normal man, soft spoken, whose greatest abomination on earth is to raise his voice, and for all the years we are married it I has been the same struggle of trying to make ears that simply will not function up to standard, hear. I have two normal children . . . Nothing helps, and only within the-last year a doctor was honest enough to tell me that BO amount of treatment will help. "There is no tolerance among people for those who live in the world of half silence, where sound is like the droning of bees. Try It Yourself. "Do I emphasize too strongly.? Indeed I do not.' And to those who think so, I advise the same test of understanding that the heroine of 'The Rosary' imposed upon herself when she blindfolded herself and sat in a darkened room visiting with her dearest and most loved friends without removing the bandage to .see them, to find -out for herself just what the blindness that had overtaken, her lover, might mean.- To those who will not understand the unhappiness and loneliness caused by partial deafness I advise deliberate partial deafness through muffling of the ears with cotton for a period of time. The blind are treated with every consideration. People recognize these unfortunates cannot see, they don't stupidly lose patience with those to whom sight is denied. Why, then, must those who suffer an affliction equally as painful be subjected to such ignorant intolerance?" Three Women, One Man Obtain Divorces in Edwards' Court Judge M. F. Edwards- granted divorces to three women and one man in district court here Wednesday, each on a showing of cruel and inhuman treatment. The decrees were granted to: Mrs. Wilma Hopkins from Edward. Plaintiff was given right to resume her maiden name, W'eather- . Mrs. Eva Prestholt from Clifford.
