Today, more than over before, good
speech is a prime factor in social and
vocatiohal advancement. It is due to * Js
e ver-growing speech consciousness the v
colleges everywhere now maintain Speech
clinics, and offer many speech courses.
Dr. Koepp-Baker and his staff, who visit
ed our Center on October 50th, are part
of the speech clinic of The Pennsylvania
State College, which comprises one of
the largest clinics of its kind in the
country. According to Dr. Koepp-Baker,
the purpo e of his vi it was to locate
students who are handicapped by speech
defects, and to recommend way of core*-
recting these impediments. He highly fev
ors the taking of speech courses by all
students, regardless of their curriculum.
He demonstrated the advisibility of this
action even for students in technical
curricula. u e pointed out that, although
in past years an en; ineer was expected
to know mathematics only, together with
the sciences, today, he like tho teacher,
must be capable of fluent c nversation.
Only if an individual is a commanding
speaker will he readily succeed in sat
isfying his employer, his clients and
his friends.
V'Jhen asked to comment on the speech
of the Hazletsn U dergraduate Center
students, Dr. Koepp-Baker replied that
their speech was on a par with that of
other student bodies, but that a larger
than- average number had their diction
impaired by " foreignisms. " In closing,..
! he wished to remind the students that
j any of the twenty-five speech courses
! offered at the campus is worth taking,
J since the ability to speak well is essen
tial in any field.
