Outwardly, the school will ap

two serious objectives.
First, the children all have
special problems. Some are hard
of hearing, some have speech
difficulties, some have physical
handicaps, and some are both
ered by mild emotional distur
bances. All have one thing in
common: their "unusualness"
has prevented them from nor

help them learn how to play
and work and learn with other

from the Nebraska Society for

goods. In addition, parents, if fi
nancially able, are asked to pay
three dollars a week to have their
children in "school" daily, Mon

Dr. Wiley said the school re
serves the right to refuse en
rollment, but will consider all
applications from parents of un

The department also conducts
a Saturday morning school for
unusual children who are of school
age. This class is conducted as a
laboratory training project and is
concerned primarily with young
sters who have speech difficulties,
or who are hard of hearing. It is
under the direction of Harlan

Roberts reminds that the car

be better played than other
types of music. Symphonic
music does not fit the capacities
of the tower. Slow tunes will
be handled better than fast ones.
