But the Senators in executive session reportedly bowed to House,, agreeing that the shall be a "national goai." Sr /E rV 0 M S F 0 ^ C T HlLDRENINSTATE HAVE HEARING PROBLEMS _ Dr - Gle " McCormick Interviews Youth to Determine Trainging Requirements EARS MORGANTOWN-About school-age children in West Virginia are estimated to have serious hearing impairments, which are often difficult to detect. Only about half of those children have been identified', according to Dr. Glen P. Mc- Cprmick, coordinator of West Virginia University's speech and hearing program. "If a child can't hear, it' extremely unlikely that he wi be able to speak without specia training," be observed. "And the sooner this training starts-preferably when the child is five or six months old--the better chance he will have. Dr. McCormick hopes to d this by establishing a high hear ing risk registry for newborn children in West Virginia. The registry would list all children whose mothers had high fevers during pregnancy, those who needed complete blood transfusions because of Rh blood incompatability of their parents, and others with special conditions. The two major causes of hear ing impairments in small child ren are earache--inflammation of the middle ear, which is known medically as otitis madia and nerve damage. One of the major causes of damage to the nerves of the ear is the mother having German measles (Rubella) and its resulting high fevers during preg nancy. THE LAST MAJOR outbreak of German measles in the U.S occurred 1 during the mid-1960s and thousands of children were affected by it. Fortunately, an effective vaccine for prevention of this disease has now been developed. High fevers and their resulting hearing losses also are caused in small children by Rh blood d i s o r d e r s , measles, mumps, chicken pox and pneumonia. Hearing problems h child* ren caused by ·title media can be treated by drugs or surgery. If these are unsuccessful, the child can be fitted with a hearing aid. In some cases, according to Dr. McCormick, the child should be fitted as early as six months. If the bearing aid can't solve the problem, lip reading training should begin--the sooner this starts, the better chance the child will have. Damage to the nerves of the ears can't be treated at present by drugs or surgery. Very few people are "stone deaf." Most have some hearing ability. Thus hearing isn't like a light switch --either off or on--but a matter of degree. Treatment for nerve damage is by hearing aid or lip reading. "A hearing aid isn't like a pair of glasses," Dr. McCormick said. "If there is some- Most Liked Convention, Harris Finds N E W YORK-MV-Pollster Louis Harris said Saturday that 52 per cent of Americans surveyed had a "highly positive" reaction to the Democratic National Convention, largely because of reforms that gave wider representatiion to blacks, women, the young and Spanish- speaking minorities. Harris' poll, reported in the New York Post, said that 25 per cent of the voters did not have such a reaction. He said 59 to 70 per cent of the electorate followed and recalled the convention's openess, the orderly behavior of the dele- gales, the original selection of Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton as Sen. George McGovern's running-mate and the minority representation. A major exception to the widely positive reaction, Harris said, was the unseating of the Chicago delegation led by Mayor Richard D. Daley. Forty-five per cent of those surveyed reacted negatively, he said, while 39 per cent had a positive reaction. // Child Can't Hear, Speech May Never Come, Doctor Says "" thing wrong with your eyes and Speech, therefore, is the most you can be fitted with the proper pair of glasses, you put them on and you see better. Although there are no exact lines of demarcation, professionals in the field have divided hearing into three categories- primitive, warning and speech. PRIMITIVE HEARING lets us know we are alive--the background noises that let us know there is something still out there or that we are still here. It has been reported that people with serious head injuries who have lost this sense of hearing become very nervous when hi a dark room because the sense of touch is all that remains. Warning hearing is the ability to detect things such as loud cries, automobile horns or fire alarms. The sense of hearing is midway between and speech. the primitive delicate form of hearing. There are now only three preschool hearing clinics in West Virginia--at WVU, in Dunbar and Huntington. However, there is a relatively unpublicized law, which was passed by the I960 West Virginia Legislature, that promises to improve the situation. "It is called the Mandatory Special Education Act (House Bill 861) and must be implemented in all counties by July 1, 1974," Dr. McCormick said. And it is my understanding that the act requires each county school system to establish special classes for exceptional children if there are five or more of them in certain disability categories including speech, hearing and sight. If there are fewer than five children in a county with a hearing problem, for example, I assume that they will be able to attend classes in adjacent counties."

HOUSE OF COMFORT Humidification, Heating, Air Conditioning Electronic Fillers What To Look For When Buying A New GAS FURNACE By RAY DARNOLD JR. Most of us consider ourselves food buyers when it comes to food; clothing, and evetyday necessities.
