Moore Outlines Speech Training . "Have a friendly and wholesome 'atmosphere in your schoolroom, in order to develop properly the speech and language of the child." Those were the words of Dr. Wilbur Moore, Director of Clinical Services who addressed a large group of teachers in Room W 107, Tuesday, July 15. The teachers were told to be sure there was as little emotional tension and disturbance as possible, and also that they should not give children reading material which is above their capabilities. The teachers were urged to provide an adequate amount of speech experience and stimulation. "If the child has not had the proper • amount and kind of speech stimulation and experience, be sure that you provide them for him before trying to teach him to read," Dr. Moore emphasizes. Dr. Moore pointed out that calling attention to tendencies which do not appear normal make the condition worse rather than correcting it. "Try to find the condition, which causes the tension"is his advice. Placement Bureau Help to Alumni According to a report released ,by Dr. Kenneth T. Bordine, supervisor of the Placement Bureau, Central Michigan College takes an active interest in the welfare of its graduates.

All-College Picnic Galls Crowd of Students;Faculty '5 Men on a House9 May Cause Comment By Painters? Union It is rumored that the local Painters' Union is filing a protest against the firm of Thorpe, Lauer, Sweeney, Bovee, and Knapp, prominent faculty members of Central Michigan College. It seems that in a Keeler Union "meeting," it was found that the house of George Lauer needed a "white-washing." Thus the corporation was formed. It is the intent of the group to encourage a yearly "paint job" of faculty houses. As originally planned, the first person to start the tradition will be George Lauer who at present has the controlling "interest" in the firm. The job will be started and hoped to be finished Saturday, July 26, at the Lauer home, ©15 S. College. 4 Ron Finch, who originally planned to join in the "painting bee," is to be out of town, much to the disapointment of the remaining five. It was stated in a recent interview of the firm that any other "professional painters" would be welcome. Members of the stage crew for the icollege play, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," put the finishing touches on the stet. The play is to be presented Monday night at 8:15 in Warriner Hall Auditorium.

A student and ardent collector of folk lore material over a great many years, Dr. Beck has been in every lumbering center of Michigan's timber country in search of songs and stories. His interest in organizing of, The Michigan Lumberjacks, an orchestra composed of the state's folk ways led him to the former lumbermen. The orchestra's youngest member is crowding 80. With Dr. Beck as organizer, director, guiding light,, and piano mover, the "hoys" have- toured the country making all the- large sportsmen's shows for the past- several years. They sing the old', songs as well as play the tunes*, and have been highly instrumental in reviving..interest in Michigan's logging era. Dr. Beck .song many of these lumberjack songs for his student audience Wednesday as he explained their significance m the field of folk material. He had much to say abut the. lumberjacks themselves and the lives they led in the big woods. They were an egoistic race, he said, and that is what their job required. This ego is reflected in the typical songs they made, Concerning his own labors in the field of gathering songs, Dr. Beck was modest. , . "Any collector of f©Ik material has his limitations," he said. "I am indebted to students and lumberjacks from Nebraska, Colorado, Wisconsin and Michigan.*1' f,,/f I. ) h v IA \' fit.
