subject which consists of: the
teaching of an alphabet to record
speech as it sounds.
Simmons served in the South
Pacific where he went in oombat
duty. A tropical infection of the
ers -caused him to have a -complete
loss of hearing. Because
he mastered the art of lip read
ing, few knew of his defect. In
fact, few students in the pho
netics -class even suspected that
his hearing was not perfectly
normal. Those who knew of his
handicap agreed that he would
never be able to pass the course
but he succeeded.
People who become deaf usu
ally begin to have difficulty in
speech. But Simmons, deter
mined to avoid this trouble,
worked out a system which en
abled him to keep his nearly per
fect voice from deteriorating. Ev
ery night, for an hour at a time,
he would read aloud to his wife.
This kept his voice completely
So excellent was his lip read
ing that a person talking face to
face with him could not discover
the defect. But if anyone would
have stood in a position where
it was impossible for Simmons to

used it would ,mot be effective
unless it had been carefully
planned and used in the most

L Do you think the Chinese

The general opinion seems to
be that the Chinese attack has
already begun. One person stated
that since 1932 the Chinese have
been preparing for aggression
against America. For the last

Wednesday, December 6,
have gone so far in their prepara
tions for aggression that we cant
stop them without an all out war,
2. Should the A-bomb be used
The pinion was about half
and half. Some thought it should
be used and others did not think
it should be used. Their reasons
were varied. Fear seemed to be
the biggest problem. Fear that
if we used it to stop aggression
the enemy would come across
the ocean and do the same to us,
S Do you think it would be
effective if used?
. Even though some of the peo
ple interviewed expressed fear,
they thought if it were used in
the right places and at the right
time the A-bomb would be ef
fective. Harold Peterson, president of
NUWA, answered the three ques
tions by saying that the Chinese
attack has begun.
He thinks that if the Chinese
are succeeding they will not stop
at the 38th parallel, but will drive
us -on and possibly out of Korea,
He does not think the A-bomb
should be used in Korea. It
would be useful -only as a scare
weapon. The Chinese are used
to more drastic things, such as
earth quakes, floods and plagues.
Carl J. Schneider, assistant
professor -of political -science,
stated that the Chinese attack has
begun since they are now fight
ing the American forces.
He said that the A-bomb
should not be used except for
military use. Generalizing he
states that the political and mili
tary implications -of its use would
have to be explored before a
definite -answer could be given.
As to its effectiveness, it would
depend upon what was being
bombed and destroyed. A specific
answer could not be given until
one knew what the targets and
the purpose of its use would be.
