The Alton school system Is set up for handling such cases but It can. not obtain a certified instructor. Until two yean ago the school district conducted a class for the deaf and hard of hearing.

State aid is available for the deaf and hard of hearing in the same manner as in fields of special educa- The student's deficiency BETHALTO — Charles Nave and Roy Roberts were re-elected to three-year terms on the Board of Education of Unit District 8 Saturday. The two Incumbents defeated Robert L. Thuerkoff, Robert Mei- and Charles Landreth, thr er. A more careful search of the enrollment,, today might bear out estimates that one per cent of any student group needs special training because of hearing loss, Norman said. Such children have the same educational and social needs as other children and if he is to have an equivalent opportunity to become a happy and useful adult, we must have skilled services from his earliest years. The special education director added. According to state recommendations, the child should be started in training as early as three years old if the case can be detected. Then he has hope that after eight years of special must be attested by a profes- three other candidates for the two . , . . . ,ischool board posts. Nave who 8i0 "f! pe y S ° n ^ f0r . e . h< : canen ;ilives at 520 Lincoln Street, Bethalto, polled 514 votes and Roberts, who lives at 52 W. McArthur in Cottage Hills, also received 514 ter the class. The teacher must be certified as qualified and only then is the financial assistance forthcoming. Neunaber Re-elected Ft. Russell Trustee BETHALTO — William E. Neunaber was re-elected school trustee in Ft. Russell Township Saturday. Neunaber polled all I the votes cast, 88. He will serve a six-year term on the three-man board. Other members are William Tietze and Oscar Helmkamp. Judges Saturday were: Neuna- the 104 votes in the four precincts. The closest candidate in race was Landreth with votes; Meiser had 92 and Thuer- koff, 87. Approximately 700 ballots were cast. attention, or about the sixth grade, he can move into regular classes and keep up. Up Reading This may mean exposure to! lip reading and other devices! plus tactical approaches to his siudies. But by that time he will be a trained boy who can hold up his end of school life without inroads into his confidence and outlook. : Many authorities believe that before undertaking Instruction i of the hearing handicapped the! teacher, in addition to special! training, should have several! years of teaching children with; normal hearing. The training generally will require at least an additional year of college work, often at the graduate level. Hard To Find Thl* perfectly backgrounded teacher may not be available to the Alton system but Norman has hope of, at least, settling for something approaching it. He presently Is canvassing universities in his search. In this series it already has been stated that the most expensive student on the class! rolls Is the repeater, the child who must take a grade over. The hard of hearing child often lays himself open to this danger before his trouble is discovered. He sometimes is classed as "dumb" by fellow students and "stubborn" by hta parents who cannot understand why he will not pay attention. He will not pay attention, of course, because he does not hear half of what is said to him at home or from the teacher at school. Drajnatto Case A speech therapist in the Alton system turned up such a dramatic case last year. The repeater was found to be hardi of hearing. Onw Ms trouble was discovered he was given special attention. However, If there was a wparate class for him under a knowing and qualified teacher of the hard of hearing, Us outlook would b« bet- t*r. And so. for the matter, would that of tits normal students to Ms class. Norman also m»d« an eppesl to the board for an additional •patch therapist. The school aystem BOW has fh».
