Birthday boy Spencer Tracy with his son John who was born hearing impaired,


I practically grew up with both Johnny Tracy and his sister Susie. With the marvelous system Mrs. Tracy developed (now used world wide) John was able to understand every thing I said. He would once in a while prompt me to not talk slowly - just talk like I regularly do. He had also developed Polio and wore braces on his legs. He, though, rode a horse well and was quite a remarkable polo player for his age. What a sweet fellow he was and Susie too. Father Spencer was marvelous with him. John was very well adjusted. Nice memories.

That may seem like a lot of steps but it's very simple. I just wanted to be sure and break down every step for you.

Ah-ha Great instructions! Here is Johnny holding horse. I am the one in the cowboy boots of course. What fun those days were at the Riviera Country Club. My father was under contract to Walter Wanger to play polo and eventually managed the club when it became the Beverly Hills Polo Club. Many of the higher ups in the film industry had kids that rode here too. Fun days!
