Latin—the need of the professional fields To the students here at Central, Latin is not a dead language, but on the contrary, it is one of the most popular of the foreign languages. Besides those who wish to major in Latin and go on to teach it, this subject is needed for those who plan to enter the medical profession or the seminary. Just as important as this is the fact that Latin serves as the basis of our own English language. In the four year course the pupils cover everything from the basic fundamentals, to the history of Caesar’s Gallic Wars, to the writings of such famous philosophers as Cicero and Virgil. In accordance with the Latin course, many of the students participate in the extra¬ curricular activities carried out by the Latin Club which was established three years ago. Early in the spring the ability of these students is tested by the Auxilium Latinum Test, which compares our students with all Latin students across the nation. Left to right: G. Abrass, T. Sarna, T.

French — the translator’s language Class Passes Papers M. Haladyna passes paper up to S. Baker. “Zitudiez-vous pas du tout? Au contraire j’etudie beaucoup.” This is one of the common phrases learned by the students at the beginning of the French course. The first two years are devoted to the learning of grammar and its application in translating gramma¬ tical paragraphs. These students also pursue the geography and history of French-speaking countries. Third year students enlarge their vocabulary especially in the declen¬ sion of verbs. Translating famous French literature is also a major undertaking by these avid admirers of French. Students are enabled to perfect their speech in the language by speaking into a tape recorder which when played back lets the student hear his own mistakes. He can then correct them readily. French is one of the most important languages since it is considered one of the universal languages in which many documents and literary works are written. Page 73

Spanish—the Spanish-Americaii link As a link with Latin-American life, Span¬ ish offers students the chance of learning about and promoting the interest in Spanish¬ speaking countries. The first and second year students are concerned with the grammar and use of conversation. Spanish and Latin customs, literature, and backgrounds are pursued by the third year students while the seniors are interested in Spanish literature, especially Don Quixote. A Spanish written newspaper is put out by the students who contribute the articles themselves. It contains puzzles, jokes, and articles. La Charla Esponal is the name it carries. Spanish is a practical subject because it helps us to avoid any misunderstandings with our Pan-American countries. It is also helpful in the diplomatic service, commerce, and journalism. i. Page 75
