- 6 14. HAZARD, SOUTHEAST IN ALCOR CONSORTIUM Hazard Community College and Southeast Community College will be part of a six-college consortium which will operate programs of recreation, education, health, nutrition and community development in 75 isolated communities in a 24-county East Kentucky and Tennessee area. Called ALCOR, funds for the program, in the amount of $233,830, have been granted over a three-year period by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. More than 75 students in the fields of nursing, medicine, dentistry and special education are working this summer in the various ALCOR centers. The program is administered by Alice Lloyd College. 15. SPEECH CLINIC AIMED AT STUTTERERS Dr. Robert A. Valyo, director of speech pathology and audiology, College of Education, has just conducted a new clinical program (June 15-Aug. 6) aimed at helping persons who stutter. Dr. Valyo pointed out that stuttering is most apparent in youngsters who attend grades three through twelve. Although many children between ages three and seven stutter, it is fairly normal for them to exhibit such patterns, which frequently disappear without treatment. 16. SPRINGFIELD GIRL WINS FULBRIGHT GRANT A new Fulbright scholar at the University, Miss Sally Hamilton of Springfield, will take her Fulbright grant to the University of Heidelberg in Germany. When she returns from Heidelberg she will begin studies for her doctorate at UK, and hopes some day to teach. Miss Hamilton received her MA here in May and was a teaching assis- tant in the German department while in Graduate School. During the four-week intersession she taught a course in "'German for Reading Knowledge." 17. PROF. LAWSON NAMED ACTING LAW DEAN Prof. Robert G. Lawson has been named acting dean of the College of Law. The announcement by President Singletary was made at a dinner honoring Dr. W. L. Matthews Jr., the retiring law school dean. Lawson's appointment will be effective with the start of the fall semester and he will serve until the appointment of a permanent successor to Matthews. Lawson is a native West Virginian, a graduate of Berea College, and the College of Law. He practiced law in Roanoke, Va., and in Lexington before joining the law faculty on a full-time basis in 1966. Dean Matthews announced his intention to retire from the dean- ship last year. His return to full-time teaching and research duties as a member of the law faculty will mark the end of a 14-year tenure as dean.
