On And OH Campns

A Time For Politics
There have been many rumors on campus over the past |
two years concerning the existence of a Young Democrats
Club, However, the evidence of such being true is nil. And
if these Young Democrats are any example of the Democrats
throughout North Carolina, then the Republicans are in for a '
The absence of these two organizations on campus is per.
haps a prime example of the apathy which is found among
American students today. With the coming of the national elect-
ions in 1964 interest in the two parties will begin to build.
But there is no excuse for the complete lack of working politi-
cal clubs on campus during the off election years. The two
obvious questions are why is there this disinterest and what
could a political club do during off years? ^
Lack of stimulation from the administration and faculty mem.
bers who are either not interested or fear local frowns is defi.
nitely a drawback. Programs such as the Concert-Lecture
Series could be used to present controversial ideas. This has
not been done to any extent, with the one exception last year
when Drew Pearson flooded an audience with his liberal bab.
The need for these clubs in off years is undeniable. While
a bulging membership cannot be expected, a small, strong
core of workers can be a contribution to both the campus and
During non-election years speakers are easier to obtain to
address the clubs. Letters to local newspapers is a good means
for the clubs to stimulate political interest and concern. A third
area which the clubs could use is that of speaking at local civic
clubs, where they could explain the political aims of their organiza
In the months to come we can expect activities such as that above
from both political groups on campus. Let us hope that these tws
clubs can see past the stars of '64 and build strong, well-or
ganized clubs that will continue to stimulate campus and community
interest in political affairs.

(Editor’s Note: This is the first in a series of articles devoted to
bringing the foreign lanuages out of the classroom and into con
temporary life. French, German, and Spanish will be alternately y
used in this section. The editors would welcome comments and
suggestions from our readers.)
Foreigh language majors in the College ‘of Education, Uni
versity of Maryland, will be required to take forty-two semesterj
hours of their major language, including one year of grammar
and composition, on year of advanced conversation, a one-year
survey of literature, one year of literature courses on the 100
level, and one year of the foreign culture.
The new Pathescope-Berlitz Audio-Visual German Language
Series, is used in the teaching of conversational German in
junior and senior high schools and colleges.
Like the French and Spanish Series, all of the photography for
the German Series is photographed in color on location. Scenes
are shot in Munich and surrounding areas, Hamburg and many other
locations throughout Western Company.
MONITORING IN THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY, Experience
has shown that students are best motivated to exert maximum
attention and effort throughout a laboratory period if they attena
laboratory as part of a class function, with their own teacher
at the monitoring controls.
There Is a psychological advantage of the omnipresent monitor
potential hovering over every student. The function of the tfacier
as an iitellectual disciplinarian Is important; it furnishes the
same motivation to good performance as does his presence in a
regular class. The difference is that In the laboratory the
motivation impinges upon all students at all times, since the
precise focus of the teacher's attention is unknown. The student
must assume that he is being graded at every moment,

The burden of taking oiit-of-class census of school-age

duties carried by South Carolina public school teachers
Is this likely to spread to other states and increase the

Why Leam To Speak In Public?
By Dr. Louis LaMotte
It will help every person if he becomes a more effective
public speaker, because that man, who can forget about him.
self, so as to put his mind on his speech, in order to get across
his views successfully, has a power for benefittmg himself,
his fellowmen, and for serving the Lord who put him here
Speaking is important today. It is used by parents, neighbors,
voters, church leaders, workers, foremen.executives, communi.
ty workers, — leaders of all kinds depend upon communication.
Many of our human occupations use speaking as a major tool:
teachers, lawyers, salesmen, diplomats, men in management,
politicians, sind preachers, Daniel failed so utterly when he
first tried to speak that he broke out crying, so the story goes.
However, he came to write "If all my possessions and powers
were taken from me with one exception, I would choose to
keep the power of speech, for by it I could soon recover all
Studying speaking can free you from the fear which makes
your mind sit down when your body stands up. Even in a short
course in public speaking, self-confidence can be attataed in
a remarkable degree. Speaking is like swimming, roller.skathig,
or riding a bicycle. After you get the hang of it your fear be
comes controlable. There Is no other way to learn than by
Studying speaking can develop your personality. It helps you
BE something. That Is because in studying speaking you must
study yourself. In school how many times did you study your
self? You remember lessons on reading, writing, and arithme-
tic, and all kinds of “ologies,” How many of your teachers
ever called you into a private conference and said "Now, Bill,
I want us to study you,” Not many. Someone has said we are
fortunate if we have had even one teacher who took a personal
interest in us.
Yet the most important thing in life to you is YOU, you your
self, You look in the mirror when you shave, but do you reaUy
remember how you look? (Some of us would like to forget,)
In public speaking you must think about yourself. It hurts us
sometime, but it can start us on the upward path. I heard about
a back-woods preacher who said the prodigal son lost all his
dad’s money. Then he pawned his extra clothes. Then he sold
his overcoat, his coat, his vest, his shirt, his shoes, his trous
ers—when he had nothing else to sell he came to himself!
Then he arose and went home. We need to come to ourselves
and try to see in ourselves what everyone else sees. When
we set out to become public speakers we start to examine not
only how we look, dress, act, speak, behave, think, believe,
but what virtues we have to share with others. If it i^true,
as old Socrates said, that the unexamined life, is not worth
living, then public speaking will help us examine ourselves.
Then we can set out on the long road of becoming and being,
with God’s help, more what we, in our best moments would
really like to be.
Not only will the study of speaking help one BE something,
but it will also help one DO something—something worthwhile,
some of the things which will benefit ourselvee, our families,
our fellowmen, — .
