Transcript: 
"NTID" by Robert F. Panara Because it heard the silence of the heart, its destiny was daring from the start, beginning with a searching eye whose gleam, envisioned newer worlds for his kind, It gathered to a great crusading cause whose faithful followers held high the torch, for fiat lux and all the world to see NTID! its time and tide had come to integrate the hearing and the deaf in kindred studies on a common campus each learning from the other an awareness of human needs and unfulfilled desires, of breaching the divisive wall of silence, and bridging the communication gap. And theirs became the challenge and the charge to mingle with the mainstream and to master their little fears and hang-ups and prejudgments---- not to belittle but to be big of heart. And from the experience in their vestibule where stand the many ports of destiny, embark upon their chosen odyssey.
