Tells Story Fluently
But Uses Only Signs – [Most of story unreadable]

A master of the art of wordless description
is John Rosensteel of the East ward, a deaf mute. Mr. Rosensteel, who operates a garage and
automobile supply store, can describe an incident by signs quicker than an
ordinary person can describe it in words.
Mr. Rosensteel does not supply the mute’s alphabet. That is much too slow for his purpose. Instead he uses his hands in a way that one
would have to be very dense, indeed not to understand him.
