    Lake-park Estate, Blackburn, over 70
    icres in extent, has been purchased by the
    committee of the Adult Leaf and Dumb
    Society of Victoria for a Flower Farm for;
    Deaf Mutes, the idea being to provide light;
    occupation for that section of the deaf and
    lumb who, by reason of physical weakness,
    lc., are unable to follow other regular em
    ployment. A Home for Aged and Infirm
    Deaf Mutes will also be erected on the es
    tate. The park will remain open to the
    lublic as a pleasure resort, and efforts will
    be made to add to its present attractions.

    A deputation of the committee of tho Deaf and
    Dumb Institution, consisting of the Revs. Messrs
    Moss (hon. sec), Chase, and Biekford, with Messrs
    Ogilvy, Smith, Crouch, and Hurcourt, obtained
    an interview with the hon. the Treasurer, in order
    to bring under his notice the olaims of this charity
    to assistance from the Government. The deputa
    tion, in anawer to inquiries from Mr Haines,
    Btated that the school had been established for
    two vears. Last year they had received from the
    Government, through the Denominational Board,
    aid to the extent of about £100, which amount
    waa inadequate, even when supplemented by
    priyate subscriptions, to meet their requirements.
    It was estimated by Mr Archer, the Registrar
    General, that there are not less than 200 mutes in
    this colony, most of whom had poor parents. For
    the purpose of efficiently conducting the school,
    it was, therefore, almost necessary that the chil
    dren should reside with the master, and many of
    the pwents were u-iable to- pay for the whole of
    their board. To meet this difficulty, the com
    mittee had, in several instances, relying upon
    public support, remitted the whole or a portion of
    the cost of maintenance ; but finding that the
    funds from subscriptions were inadequate to meet
    the number of cases applying for help, they
    thought it a most legitimate case for aid from
    Government. It was represented that there were
    three or four oases now waiting for admission as
    soon as the funds would admit. The hon. the
    Treasurer s*ated that the institution had his
    heartiest sympathy, and personally he woulil do
    what he could to aid the committee ; but, inas
    much as the institution was of a charitable charac
    ter, and as a commission was now sitting upon the
    charitable institutions of the colony, it wan only
    right that the matter should be referred to it for
    consideration. He would direct that the papers
    should be forwarded, with a request for a report
    thereon ; and he assured the deputation that any
    report favorable to the institution would receive
    his warmeat support. The deputation then with
    drew, thanking the hon. the Treasurer for the
    favorable manner in which their representations
    had been received

    RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION FOR THE
    DEAF AND DUMB.
    TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
    Sir,—As you were kind enough to publish
    an article in your issue of Saturday commend-
    ing the movement that has recently been
    started in Melbourne for the promotion of
    the spiritual and temporal welfare of the
    adult deaf and dumb of Victoria, I am en-
    couraged to ask you if you will kindly permit
    a few remarks from one who has been inti-
    mately acquainted with the deaf and dumb
    for some year.
    The happiest days of the lives of deaf mutes
    are their school days. While in the in-
    stitution they are under the supervision of
    persons well acquainted with their pecu-
    liarities. They can thoroughly understand
    each other, and can likewise make them-
    selves intelligible to everybody in what might
    be termed their little silent world. But
    when they leave the institution, and return
    to remote parts of the country, it is then they
    begin to feel their affliction most keenly.
    They find no consolation whatever by going
    to church on account of their inability to
    understand the service and in course of time
    many of them become callous to religious
    matters. Several of them pass through
    life without having had a single opportunity
    after leaving the institution of conversing
    with one of their fellows, or with any other
    person competent to talk with them in their
    peculiar language. This desolate kind of life
    often brings them to an early grave, and so
    many poor deaf mutes pass away from time
    into eternity like a block of wood floating
    down a stream, without knowing whither
    they are going.
    A little information relative to mission
    work amongst the deaf and dumb of the
    the British Isles and America might prove
    interesting to your readers. In London
    there are two handsome churches which
    have been built specially for the deaf and
    dumb. Those churches have rooms attached
    to them, in which the deaf and dumb have the
    privilege of meeting at night for advice from
    their pastors, lectures, social intercourse,

    Help for the deaf

    Interest in the work of the Adult Deaf and Dunib So- ciety of Victoria was aroused by Mr. R. P. Sanderson, so- ciety president, when he ad- dressed ' guests at a tea party he and his wife gave at Chevron yesterday.

    The society cares for deaf and dumb people over the age of 16 throughout Victoria, and is now in urgent need of a hostel at its Jolimont Square headquarters to house 67 young people who, through their affliction, are not happy unless among their own people.

    To this etfd the society will hold a public appeal from August 6 to 29-the first it has made since 1938.

    Women at yesterday's party formed a ladies' committee to help the appeal, with Mrs. W. K. Burnside as president; Mrs. B. F. Sanderson, Mrs. C. R. B. James, and Mrs. Horace Bedggood, vice presidents; Mrs. V. R. Scott, sec- retary; and Mrs. Ralph Bryant, treasurer.

    ADULT DEAF AND DUMB
    MISSION.
    . The Adult Deaf and Dumb Mission "came of
    age" yesterday, and, in celebration of tile attain
    ment of its majority, a tea and public meeting
    was held in the mission's new building, Flinders-
    street, last evening.
    The Lord Mayor of Melbourne, who presided at
    the public meeting, assured his audience that
    the sweetest part of his public work was to be
    able to assist the philanthropic- institutions in the
    city. lie was given to understand that the in
    stitution was quite free of debt. That was a
    somewhat unique position for such nn institution.
    His olllcial duties uatially led hiin in the direction
    of movements for getting charitable institutions
    out of debt. He congratulated the mission upon
    (lie success that had attended its efforts during its
    21st year.
    The balance sheet, as read by the treasurer, Mr.
    E. Nctvhiiiin, showed that subscriptions and dona
    tions received during the year amounted to £1110.
    A sum of £283 had been expended on furniture
    nnd fittings for (he new building, and £511 had
    been absorbed by missionary's salary, wages, com
    mission and travelling expenses; £250 had been
    transferred to the Savings Bunk, nnd the balancu
    to credit stood at £124.
    Addresses were delivered by Mr. S. Manger.
    M.l\, the Rev. H. G. Nichoils and the llev. 1'rof.
    Gosimm, whose remarks were interpreted into
    the sign language for I lie benefit of tlie members
    of Hie mission. Recitals by deaf mutes,, by means
    of signs and on tlie fingers, were given, and tile
    evening's entertainment closed with a limelight
    show, which was appreciated by the juvenile por
    tion of the gathering.

    UNEMPLOYED DEAF AND DUMB.
    TO THE EDITOR OF THE AGE.
    Sir,— -There is a comparatively large num
    ber of our dcuf and dumb fellow, citizens
    out of employment, and it will be readily
    understood that when normal skilled arti
    sans cannot tind work there is little hope
    for those who arc deaf and dumb. Also,
    when conditions l ight themselves, the
    deaf and dumb will of necessity he among
    the Inst to he reinstated. We appeal
    to all employers of labor to give our less
    fortunate fellow deaf and dumb the oppor
    tunity to prove that they are able to
    work side by side with the normal with
    equally good results. If all employers of
    one hundred or more would give work to
    but one deaf person it would mean giving
    him a chnncc in life, for the odds arc so
    against him compared to the hearing. In the
    meantime temporary - work, carpentering,
    painting, gardening, hoot repairing or any
    manual work by day or halt day would
    materially casojtis present circumstances.
    We also wodld be grateful for parcels of
    clothing.
    We here, with very sincere appreciation,
    acknowledge the generous help of Miss
    Alice Ciraham, who for somo time past
    has made a donation of £25 per month
    to help our unemployed deaf and dumb
    men and women. — Yours,

    Cricketer
    Described as "the most-loved
    deaf man In Australia," Mr.
    J. M. Johnston, former welfare
    officer for 25 years of the Adult
    Deaf and Dumb Society of
    Victoria, is 111, but remembered
    by a host of friends.
    His portrait appears on the
    cover of the New Year Issue of
    "The Deaf Talkabout, " pub
    lished In Jollmont-square,
    In his 00th year, Mr. John
    ston was born In South Yarra
    and soon afterwards went to
    Ballarat. For 33 .years he
    served the society's cricket
    club, first as player, and then
    as honorary secretary for three
    years, vice-president for seven
    years and president for 21
    years.
    He played tennis, too, and
    was active in all sporting car
    nivals. Until 1948, when he re
    signed because of 111 health, he
    had been general secretary ot
    the Australian Deaf Cricket
    Association since Its formation
    in 1917.
    Before he came down to
    Melbourne Mr. Johnston was a
    member of the Ballarat Har
    riers.' He ran long distances.
    "His charm, personality and
    co-operative help," reads the
    Journal's editorial, "have
    gained him a large circle of
    friends In all parts of Australia
    and overseas."
