Occupational Hearing Services (OHS), a hearing education company, estimates that 20 percent of the U.S. population has a hearing loss or ringing in the ears, mostly from exposure to loud noise. Often the hearing loss is so subtle that the people around the victim notice if first--the person with the problem is the last to know. The company sponsors a telephone hearing test through hospitals and hearing clinics across the United States. Callers dial a local number (using a high-quality phone) and listen for several tones. To find the number nearest you, write OHS, Dept. of Public Affairs, 16 S. Orange St., Media, Pa. 19063 or call (215) 565-6114.
