Deaf Ch ildren
By Karen Sass
Deaf children are learning to speak for the first time
in a special program on the University campus. This is
one of the many services of the University Speech and
Hearing Laboratory.
Approximately 100 to 150 pre-school and schoolage
speech and hearing handicapped children are helped each
year according to Lucille Cypreansen, assistant professor
of speech and advisor of the clinic.
"These children are referred to ns by doctors, social
workers, visiting nurses and other agencies for diagostic
testing," she said. "We then refer them to other services
and often they come back to ns for therapy.".
The children's clinic however is only a portion of the
program offered by the laboratory. University students
and other adults with speech and hearing defects are also
referred to the clinic. Two courses Sor credit are offered
to foreign students in which they learn how to pronounce
English correctly.
New this year are the laboratory's cooperative pro
grams with the neurological and psychiatric department
of the School of Medicine in Omaha and with the cleft
palate clinic in the Dental College.
The most common type of defect diagnosed and treated
is that of articulatory difficulties in which sounds are
omitted or confused. Voice problems are second in fre
quency. "Although we are certainly interested in helping these
people, the primary purpose of the clinic is to provide
practice for the undergraduate speech therapy major,"
Miss Cypreansen pointed out.
The American Speech and Hearing Association requires
that a speech therapy graduate have 200 hours of clinical
practice. The undergraduate student works primarily
with children at first out by graduation he has gained a
great deal of experience in working with adults. There
are about 70 students in the training program at present.

Of Opinion
On Budget
Total Request Never
Granted: Marvel
By Mike MacLean
"There was an honest dif
ference of opinion on the
budget for the University for
this biennium, and there , al
ways will be," stated State
Senator Richard Marvel,
Chairman of the Budget Com
mittee. )
"In my experience, theHo
tal University request has
never been granted," he con
tinued. The Legislature must
attempt to allocate the state's
resources fairly among the 55
agencies of the state."
"The decision oi the 1961
1963 budget has already been
made, the figure cannot be
changed," he added.
"In the 1959-1961 budget the
University got a $4 million
dollar raise, from $21 million
to $25 million. Almost all of
this raise was used to in
crease instructors salaries,"
he otated. "For the 1961-1963
budget, the University re
quested a 22 increase and
received an 11 increase.
There was no budget cut, as
some of the headlines have
stated," Marvel stated.
He continued, "As chair
man of the committee, ,1 am
hoping to schedule meetings
with the University officials,
both formal and informal, to
djscuss the University's prob
lems. I think that these
problems should be studied
continuously, not just six
months out of every year."
When asked for a possible
solution, Marvel stated,"
Legislators should have an
opportunity to meet the fac
ulty, so that the two groups
could become better acquain
ted with each other's puob
lems. Legislators should be
invited to speak at campus
meetings and students should
be encouraged to attend the
legislature when it is in ses
sion." Senator Fern Hubbard
Orme, a woman senator from
Lincoln who also was on the
budget committee, had this to
say: "
"As I see it'the budget re
quest approved by the Board
of Regents and presented by
Chancellor Hardin recognized
the needs of a growing insti
tution devoted to comprehen
sive research, textsive serv
ices and classroom instruc
tion. I regret the budget com
mittee members did not ap
prove the entire amount."

Learn to Speak
problem is the lack of books and toys which are used in
the children's clinic.
"You teach these children to speak correctly by
communicating through toys," she explained, "and we
have no appropriation for such materials."
This year members of the speech therapy service hon
orary, Sigma Alpha Eta, gave talks to organized houses
about the clinic, making a request for materials, and also
appeared on a local TV program explaining the need for
these toys.
The clinic received 20 of All University Fund this
, The Speech and Hearing Laboratory does not have any
great, means of financial support outside of the support
it receives from the state.
No Charge
There is no charge for diagnosis at the clinic and only
a modest charge for therapy for children and non-University
"The University of Nebraska Speech and Hearing
Laboratory may not be too well known on campus but
it has national fame other universities look up to," Miss
CypreanSen said. "We have the reputation of having one
of the best undergraduate programs in the country."
All members of the faculty have taught out of state
and are advanced members of the American Speech and
Hearing Association. Dr. Burgi is a fellow in the organiza
tion, an honor which is given only to outstanding workers
of the field.
A textbook written by several members of the staff
is being used all over the country and was recently
adopted by Northwestern University.
The clinic, which began in 1940 as .one desk in Temple
building, now occupies several offices on the first floor
and a whole section of second floor.
The laboratory also has a research program which
is conducted by the staff and graduate students. At pres
ent, the speech therapy department offers a masters de
gree but no doctorate degree program.

service facility known as the
Twin Towers project. The re
maining $4,784,000 will be used
to refund outstanding bonds
of the 1953, 1956 and 1959 is
sues. Comptroller Joseph Soshnik
said the combining of the
bond issues into one will re
duce financial accounting
complexities and will lead to
more flexible management of
housing facilities.
Under the terms of the over
all issue, the University has
until 1967 to issue the addi
tional $6.5 million of bonds
which will be used to finance
future dormitory construction.
The bonds will be secured
by a lien on revenues from
the University's residence
halls and food-service facili
ties and from a portion of the
student fees for the Stu
dent Union and Health Cen
ter. Housing
The Twin Tower dormitor
ies will house 960 students. At
present 3,620 students (not in
cluding those who live with
parents) are required to find
their own housing off-campus
because campus living units
are filled.
The Assenmacher property
which was purchased is di
rectly northwest of the Twin
Towers project. It is 175 feet
square and Holds an omee,
garages, lumber sheds and a
material yard.
Carl Donaldson, University
business manager, said that
owners of the company are
planning to liquidate the busi
ness this month and had of
fered the property to the Uni
versity. -
The cost of the land is ap
proximately 57 cents per
square foot.
The ten percent dormitory
increase, which becomes ef
fective next fall, will mean
that students will pay $660
an increase of $60 to live
and eat in University-operated
dormitories. The rate is based
on 20 meals per week for the
school year.
The Board also voted a $5
per month increase for married-student
housing on t h e
College of Agriculture cam
pus, effective Sept. 1.
The cost will be raised
from $70 to $75 per month
for one-bedroom apartments
and from $80 to $85 per month
for two-bedroom apartments.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin
said the increase was neces
sary because of the higher
operational building costs. He
said the present rate is in
adequate to take care of
equipment replacement.
Chancellor Hardin said the
Nebraska rates have been
among the lowest throughout
the Big Eight. Other rates for
the present year compared
with Nebraska's $600, are:
Colorado, $710; Iowa State
$660; Kansas, $652, Kansas
State, '$660; Missouri, $670;
Oklahoma. ?560 and Oklahoma
State, $588.
