'"•: Caldwell, single-handed, is spearheading a drive that may lead to securing a special teacher for these children. Tommy, the oflder son of Mr. and Mrs. Caldwell, has a hearing defect and they now take him to the Amarillo Speech and Hearing School twice a vreek. Next year, he will be old enough to start to school and they must make some arrangement for him to be in a special school. This is the basis for their interest in the work now. In Amarillo they have learned that if there are enough children with speech or hearing defects in a county, assistance can be had from the state toward a teacher. Help from a private foundation interested in this work is also -a possibility. •Marsha Hoore. Tyler, and ILynda Trumpets, Raymond Horton, Nancy Crawley, Tommy Thom- .as, and Dwight Bowen.
