lA/kai iiamean, aLsonunnen titan? ANGELA MARTIN: By ALICIA HART NEW YORK - Angela l mm Martin, i young ventrilo- £• quist, wants tb start ft new WM teert-agefad-g^ddiction clubs. It:9m thiftk Angela ' * is a raisin to suggest this, just listen to your friends. Or, tv ^ m ., m& use a tape recorder to hear your & x %^&^fef own voice. Is It raucous or weak? , t A-^^&i 1 !^ Do you mumble or swallow your * "wwwwm words? Angela point* out you can, and should, correct bad diction. "Using your voice properly is like being well-dressed." The human voice is like an instrument, she explains, and can be beautiful or ugly, depending upon how it is used. Fortunately for her, she stumbled onto the fun of voice-throwing when she was a child and has spent much time practicing and studying voice control. "A basic problem for most of us," she says as a fellow teenager, "is our 1 failure to use our lips and tongues enough. We don't enunciate. We just slur over the words." As a ventriloquist, she must enunciate "through" her dummies, with her mouth closed. This helped improve her speech. "It's really belly or stomach talking," she explains, and suggests teen-agers learn to use their diaphragms to help improve their voice quality. Your diaphragm is that membrane between the lungs and the stomach where hiccups originate. To develop its use, lie flat on the floor and place a book or two over the area. Now take a deep breath. The books should rise. Hold your breath, count to 10 and exhale. Do this as a regular exercise, start with 5 and work up, and you soon will have the kind of breath control essential to better speech. Pert and pretty, Angela lives with her parents in Astoria, N.Y., a subway ride from Manhattan where she appears as singer-ventriloquist on television and in night clubs. She also writes pop music for Bobbie Darin's company. "Often on weekends with my gang," she says, "I'm slangy and my diction slips. "Slang is all right," she feels, "but it can be a problem. You get so used to calling someone a 'fink' and such that you don't build much of a vocabulary." Fortunately for Angela, she needn't worry. . Extremely articulate, she suggests teen-agers can overcome voice problems before reaching 21. . Train your voice, learn to be yourself, and relax, she says. To find the true quality of your voice, she explains, relax your jaw, yawn and say "ah," "ee," and "oh." The tone you hear is your true pitch. Try to work for this rather than speaking in a monotone. To help you do this and develop a more pleasing voice, read the newspaper aloud each morning. Books on yoga and speech are good aids if you do not have a speech therapist in your school to help. 'It's surprising what you can lean from dummies." Announce Deanery Meeting In Nauvoo Rev.
