Preliminary (7-8th graders) 6:30 p.m. niques that would enable her to give them still greater op portunities to live more normal lives, is reflected in the lives of her pupils and the ever lasting gratitude of their families and friends. According to Miss Kent her interest in this particular field dates back to one of those rare friendships between a child and an adult. In this case her.adult neighbor refused to select a hearing aid until she was sure she could hear Alice’s voice. And so was kindled a dream to grow up and help those with hearing defects. Following her graduation from the University of Tenessee as a teacher, she studied at the North Carolina Training Center for Teachers of the Deaf. From that day to this, teaching has been interspersed with special courses. World War II brought about a decided different trend in hearing aids so Miss Kent went to Northwestern University where she did demonstration teaching while getting her master’s degree in Audiology. She spent five years testing and teaching in the schools in Hawaii, then it was back to the class room, this time at Clarke School for the Deaf at North Hampton, Mass, of which Mrs. Calvin Coolidge was then board president. A few years of teach ing then a summer at North western and teaching at the University of Utah. After having taught schools private and public, here and elsewhere, Miss Kent has re turned to work in the East Cleveland schools. Her first local teaching was at Superior School. Now the Hearing Classes are centered in Cham bers School. “East Cleveland,” she says, “is doing more for the hard of hearing child than any other school it has been my privilege to work in. Here the child goes into a regular class as soon as he is ready for it. This associa tion with hearing children makes it possible for the child to live a more normal life and to go further in life, providing there is no handicap other than hearing loss.” Miss Kent’s abilities in her field have brought her much recognition. She is an outstand ing member in state and na tional professional groups, she is a corporate director of the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center, a director in the Alex ander Graham Bell Association. She is also a Tri Delt and a member of Quota Club. Local Resident Gets State Post Attorney General Mark Mc Elroy this week named a life long resident of East Cleve land, James Coleman McCoy, as Executive Assistant to the At torney General.

Other relatives in the East Cleveland area include Mrs. Te resa McCoy, 13406 Graham ave., and Mrs. Bertha McCoy, 1653 Elsinore ave. In the grades, McCoy attend ed $t. Philomena’e School. During World War II, Mc Coy spent 34 months in Burma and China, in U. S. Army pub lic relations. McCoy’s new dixies will see him represent the Attorney General at many civic func tions. His administrative duties will include the handling of personnel problems for the At torney GenerdFs office. Three Things Make A Fire Members of the Superior PTA were both warmed and chilled by 3 ta’k given them recently by Capt. Martin Zagoric of the East Cleveland Fire Department. Father of four at Chambers School, he speaks dramatically and convincingly of the perils, causes, and prevention of home lires. His commentary drawn from1 personal experiences as well as departmental records is spiced w’th a series of hair-raising demonstrations of habits and household articles which can cause harmful, far- reaching fires. Cited are smoking, faul ty wiring, and combustibles in the home as the greatest causes he reminds that it takes three things to make a fire fuel, oxygen, and heat. Before showing us how to control a small fire on our own he cau tioned that we ourselves can become fuel in seconds. The East Cleveland Dept, is adequately equipped and its men are fully trained to combat any type or size fire they can and do often avert tragedy which would occur if the aver age citizen tried to do the job himself. However, if fire should break out at home said the fire fighter, get the people out if possible and call LI. 1-1212. Shutting doors between floors or closing off the origin of the fire will prevent the spread of it. He recommended crawling on all fours in escaping to avoid heat and gases -which can easily suffocate. Baking soda is a must to have on hand as a fire-quencher or to use as a poultice on bums. If afire, lie down and roll it out fire burns faster ver tically than horizontally. These and many other do’s and don’ts were given, but often over looked. Injured In Fall Marilyn Doyle, 14, of 13810 Northfield ave., fractured her right ankle in a fall on Elder wood ave.
