The Speakers' Club held an open meeting last night in the Lecture Room of Fogg Art Museum for the purpose of discussing "Cultivation in Speech". Professor C. N. Greenough, the first speaker, discussed "The Relation of Oral to Written Composition". He showed that lack of cultivation in speech is usually the cause of poor spelling, a small vocabulary, and monotony in style. Professor W. A.
