When Kiwanians met July 2, they seemed ready for the up< inning holiday. We were reminded that an InterCiub was planned for July 20 to San Antonio-Northwest Kiwsnis Club. There was a short report by the finance committee and we were reminded to lie out before 7 on Saturday mom to put out flags The program was given by Gary Tigett of San Antonio who is helping the A&B Hearing Aid Center with some
testing and other work
He told us that the ear can pick up or respond to vibrations from 16 cycle to around 18,000 per second, but the human voice can produce sounds from about 500 to 4,000 vibrations per second The most frequent difficulty is that we often do not clearly hear the soft sounds, this is one of the first testings.
Then comes the testing for loud ness, usually up to 50 to 60 decibels Then, they test for speech defects, as well as loss of understanding. Tins
happens so often in a room where there are several conversations and noise from radio, television,
typewriters or other machinery. Most modem hearing aids can tune out the background noises
There is no known cure for timutii, or ringing in the ears, principally because it seems to originate in the brain instead of in tile ears Gary said dial there is a Texas law tliat if you buy a hearing aid, and it does not help you, you can return it and get a full refund, less $75
