Vocal skills talents preval indebate, speech classes Famous orator and author Mark Twain once said, "It usually takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech."

"It lSpeech and Debatel improves the student's thinking process," said Debate and Speech II teacher, Mrs. lean Boles. Speech also teaches the student to express himself effectively. One pur- pose of Speech is to allow the student "to acquire the art of oral com- munication," said Department Chair-man, Mrs. Edelweiss Ames. To acquire these characteristics, the students must perform orations on a wide range of subjects. "They do speeches to inform, convince, per- suade, inspire and entertain," added Mrs. Ames. The course's practicality does not end with the acquisition of con- fidence. It also offers lessons that can be used in one's future experiences. "Speech is a very rewarding class. For example, you can make a good impression on a job interview by ap- plying what you learned in Speech," said Sophomore Susan Hillman. Each Speech student has his own reasons for taking the class. One motive is that it is a prerequisite for Debate. Debate is a class which is often misinterpreted as a roomful of people arguing about something of little im- portance.
