For the first time by the U. of
O., a speech clinic was held at
Prineville January 10 to examine
speech and reading defects. Those
making the trip were Bill Hoppe,
Jane Hooker, Carl Harrison, Ren
del Alldredge, and Mr. Jack L.
Bangs, instructor in speech.
Mr. Bangs said, “We examined
30 speech defective children at
the high school at Prineville, and
12 reading cases. The clinic was
very successful, and we hope to
have it again.”

GPA will count, however.
