Language is one of the most important acquisitions
of the human race, for it has enabled man to com-
municate his thoughts to his fellowmen and to later
generations and so perpetuate knowledge and cul-
tures. The Language Department at Defiance High
School has established a program which helps the
student to develop the many separate skills involved
in studying the various languages.
The first two years of Latin are spent learning

lary, coniugation, and the tenses. Records and the
linescope aid the student in studying and acquiring
a basic knowledge of Latin.
The student in Latin III and IV studies and trans-
lates some of the great classic literature. Most of
the time is spent reading the works of Virgil and
Cicero, with some review of grammar.
In Spanish class the student is taught the founda-
tion ot the language. In addition to the grammar,
the history of the Spanish language, and the ability
to speak it are learned.

The art of speaking effectively is one of the
greatest qualities a man can possess. Because the
average person talks a hundred times as much as
he writes, clear, pleasing speech is a valuable asset.
A student taking speech studies the art of conversa-
tion, parliamentary procedure, and the interpreta-
tion of poetry. His speech class provides practice in
listening courteously and thoughtfully, pronouncing
correctly, enunciating distinctly, and speaking con-
versationally, He also takes part in debates and
"The brief is prepared this way," Mr. Babb instructs
members of the Speech Class.
Dramatics classes at Defiance High School offer
the basic fundamentals of play production, set de-
sign, stage equipment and lighting, costuming, and
make-up. In addition, the student studies the mo-
tion picture industry . . . its history, production, and
the work required in that particular field. The me-
chanisms of radio and television production are also
presented to him.
