Foreign Languages Williams receives Exxon grant It may sound like something you would order in a Mexican restaurant, but it's not. La Tertulia was the ACU Spanish club, which had approximately 15 members who met once a week and listened to Spanish speakers or had Spanish devotionals. La Tertulia and the foreign language department served a dual purpose of teaching students foreign languages and helping foreign students who could not speak English, or had difficulty with the language. "Our specific purpose is to provide a place where students of Spanish and Spanish speakers can get together to share the languagef, said senior Bible major Mike Beggs, La Tertulia president. Beggs also said that the club tried to help students from Guatemala and other students from Spanish-speaking countries adjust to ACU. Besides learning Spanish through the Spanish club, students had the opportunity to learn different languages in language lab. In the language labs students listened to tapes to improve their speaking abilities. The language lab had 128 tape recorders, 20 listening booths and was manned by an instructor at designated times during the week. The chairman of the department, Dr. John H. Williams, taught French, one of the four languages available for study at ACU, and studied French culture and Renaissance French poetry. 148 Foreign Languages Williams received a grant from ACU to work on a book titled, Aux Prises avec des Francais: A Bilingual Culture Assimilator. The book was designed to aid students or travelers in resolving conflicts with the French. Williams submitted the book for publication during the spring semester. Besides working on the publication of his book, Dr. Williams wrote an article for the French Review entitled "Stalking the Perfect Culture Assimilatorf, The article appeared in the April issue. At the end of the fall semester Dr. Williams attended the "Workshop for the Development of Foreign Language and Literature Programs? The workshop met in New York City and was sponsored by the Exxon Foundation and the University of Philadelphia. Williams received a grant from the Ex- xon Foundation and assistance from ACU to attend the four-day convention. He also attended other conventions, in- cluding the national meeting of the American Association of Teachers of French in Cincinnati, the Modern Language Association meeting in New York and the Kentucky Modern Language Conference. Dr. David Dowdey, assistant professor and German teacher, began a new phase in his study of the "Protestant Clergy and the Question of Anti-Semitism in Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth-Century Germanyf, "The study primarily concerns Mose Mendelssohn, a German Jewisl philosopher," Dowdey said. "But I'm als interested in the Protestant clergy and th ideas they were perpetrating during thi era." Dowdey has studied Mendelssohn fo more than four years. He hoped his wor would result in a book within the next tw of three years or possibly some shoi papers published in language journals. Dowdey attended the South-Centrz Modern Language Association meeting i Austin and the meeting of the Lessin Society in Houston. Other professors, Robert Brown, wh taught Portuguese and Spanish, and Tro Mark Jones, who taught Spanish an French, attended the Texas Foreig Language Association Conference in Sa Antonio.
