I GRATEFUL BOYS. I STAMMERING SCHOLARS WHO I CAN NOW TALK FLUENTLY. I I On Wednesday morning Mr. Ivor Gwynne (.Chairman of tne Swansea Education Committee) and other mem- bers, mciuding Mr. Milbourne Williams, Alderman Morgan iutton, and Mr. E. J. Parker, t-ogeiliet. with Mr. Haiden (Clerk to the education Committee), Mr. T. J. Kees (Director of Education), Dr. T. Evans (.Medical Officer of Health) and others, visited the Y.M.C.A. oldi buildings and witnessed a demonstra- tion in the cure oi stammering by 1r.1 W. Yearsley, E.H.S.A. tEor six weeks Mr. Yearsley has had under treatment ?of t-he worst stammerers seieded f1'0:1111 the borough setups, and the members of th(? Education Committee were much improved with the wonderful re?ulLs? that have 'been attained. The boys were put through their various exercises, in which they arc taught the proper method of breathing, thus bringing into play the physical forces which are necessary to correct vocalisation. The examination which they under-, went was perfectly successful, and the boys were quite at home in reciting or reading several passages from Shake- j speare's plays and other literature. I Bojr's Thanks. One of the boys, in answer to a ques- tion by a member of the Committee thanked them for sending Mr. Yearsley to teach him. His parents were pleased and the future for him was brighter j now that lie was able to speak without stammering. Other boys, who were able to read fluently, passages of a speech of John Adams on the Declaration of Independ- enoe, said that liitherto they had been excused reading in their classes owing to their defective speech. Pleased With Results.. At the close of the demonstration, I Mr. Ivor Gwynne said the members of the committee had come to see what had been accomplished by that class lor stammerers, and he was certain he was expressing the views of the members of the Education Commit- tee when he 6aid t?- were very pleased indeed with what h;td ?n .tcc?n- plished through the. efforts of Mr. Yearsley. He was confident that if the boys would persevere with Mr. Years- icy's methods they would be perma- nently cured. He was much surprised to Mee what strides had been made during the last six weeks. He thought the boys would benefit by Mr. Year.doy's methods physically as well as vocally. He wafl also very pleased to see the ex- cellent manner in which the boys con- ducted themselvoo. Alderman Morgan Tutll also ad- dressed the boys, Wgiiig them to take advan.tage of the opportunities that were offei-eci tliervi by this means of edu- cation, and pointing out the benefit it would bo to them in after life.
