The announcement that a course in elocution to be known as English 10 will be given next year under the direction of Mr. Hayes is good news to many students. It is somewhat remarkable that a conrse similar to this has not been added to the college curriculum are this. If we are not mistaken, elocution, although one of the most practical of all branches of education, has never had a recognized position in any of the departments of the University. Whatever attention has been given to the subject has been out side regular work, and entirely voluntary on the part of the student. In spite of this drawback the instructor who has had the course in charge during the past two years has succeeded in obtaining excellent results. Now that the subject is to be given its proper place in the elective system, the scope of the course will doubtless be much broader, and the benefit derived from it much greater than has been possible under the limitations heretofore existing.
