These would be combinations of symbols that would be associated with objects. In the 18th century, a Frenchman, Charles de 1'Epee, created a language of signs. This was a system of using conventional gestures of the hands and arms in such a way that they represented the thought that was to be conveyed. Meanwhile, in the 17th century, a finger alphabet was worked out By Mr. and Mrs. George Smith which was similar to the one in use today. Until about 85 years ago, this was the way deaf people _ were taught to communicate ftSs--*? — signs, facial expressions, and the finger alphabet. In fact, some deaf-mutes could spell as many as 130 words a minute. But many teachers of the deaf have begun to disapprove of the sign language and finger alphabets. They say it isolates deaf people by keeping them from communicating with persons who have normal hearing. Nowadays the deaf and hard of hearing learn to interpret what is sa^l by watching the lips of the speaker. They also learn to you [JOSE *>) THE GAMS SOMEBOPV IS THE DUMMY By Dick Cavalli WELL,THIS IS THE LAST BATCH OF LBVONADE I'LL. EVER GEU1_.
