Weekly reading tests are part of the
program in the rhetoric classes.
These tests are designed to increase
the reading rate of the student. Each
student reads a selection from the
book and records his reading time.
The comprehension of reading mater- ' A,
ial is also very important. Conse-
quently a test is then taken to deter- '
mine the rate of comprehension.
While the student progresses in read
ing rate, his comprehensive abilitY
is also expected to improve.

The ability to express one's self well is helpful to
anyone at any time in his lite. The communication
skills department endeavors to encourage this skill
in all students.

elective fourth year of English is keyed toward world
literature with a emphasis on contemporary standards
and trends. Latin, French, and Spanish give to the
students an understanding of foreign language and
broaden fheir cultural background. The Bentley
"Echo" offers for those students taking iournalism
actual experience in the editing and writing of a
newspaper. In the speech classes Bentley students
acquire the art of self-expression and poise. Students
who intend to continue their education are trained to
express themselves clearly and accurately on paper in
the rhetoric classes. No matter what career a person
chooses, he must be able to convey his ideas to
