Public Speaking and Composition

Union Should Benefit Both.


There seems to have been considerable doubt concerning the recent reorganization of Public Speaking Courses and their amalgamation with the English Department. The change was effected with a view to the advantages of a combined training in speaking and written work. The instruction heretofore given in Public Speaking will be continued in an elective half-course under the name of English 10, sections of which will correspond to Public Speaking 4.

The preparatory course, to be required as a rule, with English 10, will be known as English B. Besides these, be known as English 30b, public speaking, has been introduced in connection with English 30a, now English 30; and regular instruction will be given in English 18. Some instruction in oral reading and composition will also be given in English A.
