DEPARTMENT OF SPEECH
Florence Cobb, AM.

Old as man, common to all, yet priceless to
each, is the power of speech. Within the halls
of Plumb Studio, students of speech debate
issues, discuss ideas, and interpret through eX-
pression the thoughts and feelings of others as
given in literature. Practice-pointers-and
more practice-this is the formula Which, if
followed, will take the self-conscious novice up
the ladder of personality development to the
level of the poised public speaker. Pierce
Chapel regularly resounds with the polished
phrases of a speech major as he presents his
recital, or the halls of Blanchard reverberate as
a debater presses home his point. Behind the
podium of Plumb Studio the beginner labors
through his first project speech. To what end?
That the Christian message of truth and love
may be effectively presented to all men every-

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH
From the time when some ancient author first sat down
before a block of stone to dash off a poem With the help of
hammer and chisel, or scribbled a note to his tax collector in
clay tablet, man has sought to express his thoughts and
emotions through the medium of Writing. These thoughts, emo-
tions, and attitudes as revealed in this Way are not merely
those of the author, but are expressive of the feelings of man-
kind itself. Consequently we see in literature the revelation
of man's inmost thoughts, find in it the key to a fuller under-
standing of man and his problems, and, as Christians, realize
that it is through such an understanding that we find the path
to a more effective ministry among our fellow men.
For these reasons every Wheaton student is given a Work-
ing knowledge of his literary heritage. Before he leaves the
halls of Wheaton he must master the art of expressing himself
in writing in his Freshman Writing courses, and be able to
evaluate and appreciate the expressions of others through his
literature courses. Advanced students are equipped with all
the necessary tools for a useful life in teaching or journalism.

Key to the fullest understanding of a nation's people and
culture is the knowledge of its language, for it is in the original
tongue that the beauty and significance of an utterance is
ln all branches of the language department, after the hurdles
of grammar and simple stories are crossed, emphasis is laid
on Works recognized as masterpieces of literature in each
respective field. Spanish enthusiasts become acquainted with
"The Cid" and "Don Quixote," French students read selections
from "Les Miserables" and "The Count of Monte Cristo," While
German classes study Schiller's "William Tell." Students of
Greek and Latin delve in to Xenophon's "Anabasis" or "The
New Testament," or Virgil's 'lAeneid."
Language study is often preparation for future Work. Thus,
classes in conversational French and Spanish prepare stu-
dents for mission fields using these languages, the scientific
German course offers training for the reading of great scien-
tific Works, and courses in Koine Greek give invaluable back-
ground for Bible students, Whether planning for the ministry,
teaching, or the mission field.
