Sign Words for Deaf !
Invented by Briton
Gesture System Aimed to Help
LONDON. A new system of
land gestures whereby the child
deaf from birth will think and ex-
!press himself in terms of words pro-
'duced by gestures has been devel-
oped by Sir Richard Paget, 78-year-
old British lawyer and physicist.
Sir Richard, who has spent 13
years compounding his new sign
language for the education of chil-
dren born deaf, a task involving the
'study of primitive gestures, in many
parts of the world, demonstrated 150
;of the 3,000 signs in the vocabulary
'to the anthropology section of the
British Association for the Advance-
ment of Science.
With his hands, fingers and arms
moving slowly, he spoke in the sign
sentences which he said a child of
four could express in the new sys-
"We all went to the animal en-
closure at. the zoo. The monkeys
made us laugh. The keeper fed the
sea lions with fish. I wish you could
have seen it."
Sir Richard announced he was
proposing to try the experiment of
educating a small group of young
children deaf from birth by habitu-
ally speaking to them in the sign
language, which is totally different
from finger spelling.
Instructors will encourage the
deaf children themselves to speak
'in the system, in which every sign
is the equivalent of a spoken word.
"A normal child of five has a
vocabulary of 2,000 words," Sir
Richard said, "and a deaf child
leads also to dumbness and mental
"If the child deaf from birth has
a normal vocabulary of 2,000 of
these signs he should be able to
learn to lip read as well as the child
who has become deaf after learning
"We can give him a language
which is as easy to acquire as a
v.tspoken language is to the hearing

Our Country '^7 '' Right or Wrong
FIRST CATCH YOUR DOCTOR
Proponents of coml)pulsory health insurance
have made extravagant claims and promises
-which, in the view of experts, are impossible
of fulfillment. For example, it has been said
that the Wagner-Murray-Dingell bill would
make possible, a complete physical examina-
tion each year for everyone covered. Yet, if
our 125,000 practicing physicians were each
to spend their full working time of 2000 hours
a year oh physical for all the people, they
would have less than two hours to devote to
each person-and there wouldn't be a single
physician to help the sick!
New Zealand's compulsory medical system
is an example of unfulfilled promises. The
New Zealand law says, in effect: "If you can
find a doctor who will treat you on the terms
laid down by the social insurance law, we will
foot the bill." It works out that is now a
problem of "first catch your doctor."

BANKERS HAVE RESTORATION IDEA
When American bankers get together on a
plan for combatting inflation, there should be
some immediate results. And at this time there
is a movement of the organized banking inter-
ests of the count y to go along with the gov-
crnim went's efforts to prevent further develop-
ment of a menace that could damage most seri-
ously all that the nation. now enjoys in material
In Ne\v York, the other day, Joseph Dodge,
president of the American liankers Associa-
tion. gave publicity to the association's general
anti-inflation program for the year now be-
.gun ( and in that program is at least one pro-
p)sal to lie commlended1 most highly by the
nul)lic at large.
That is that banks this year, and so long as
llay be nlLecessary. give priority to borrowers
liho can-'and v. ill turn out supplies and serv-
ices presently needed here and abroad-and at
the same time to cur) the letting of money to
interests withholding essential goods from
normal market channels in anticipation of an
advance of prices. And loans for expensive
non-essential developments are to be dis-
In this the American .Bankers Association
lays out a simple policy of encourtagement to
production-the one thing most strongly em-
phasized by President T'Iruman's anti-inflation
advisory committee as essential to a restora-
tion of normal price levels.
More of the same disposition and action on
the part of business and financial interests in
general can do much to this end. There is noth-
ing of the spectacular "campaign" method in
the bankers' plan. It is just plain American
common sense.-Florida Times-Union.
Florida has a forest fire "season" as well
as one for tourists. The difference is that while
visitors bring wealth into the state, forest
fires destroy it.

But youth is not easily discour-

His enthusiasm wavered tlowever

"Sorry, young fellow, but we're not

though, he was optimistic, "I've got
a good. prospect tomorrow," he
would say, and Ann's answer in-
variably would be.
"Don't worry Terry. We've still got
a little money in the bank."
Terry thought to himself, how
little it was.
ANN tried to keep her worries
from him too. She didn't tell
him that there was going to be an-
other baby, until it was impossible
to keep it a secret any longer.
He took her in his arms. "Ann

couldn't keep the note of despair

planed the whole thing stealth-

he had to do it. He couldn't bear to
