All dramatic activities are under
the direction of the speech depart-
ment. Opportunities are provided
for students to participate in various
Forms of speech experiences.
ln addition to test papers, themes,

the point as she "plays" at the
Christmas party, Miss McNamara as
she dodges the camera.
ln both English and Spanish the
students are being trained in the
ability to speak, read, and write a

gives a better understanding of the
language, its usage, and the people
who speak the language.
