in high schools, base their beliefs as to !
the benefit l'rom such courses, principal
ly upon the increasing opportunities in
the commercial fields of the Spanish-,
American republics for this countrv's
young men. The trade of South Amer- j
ica, opening to this country because of
the cutting off oti* European commerce,
is said to require more Spanish-spehk-1
ing business men now than ever before.
The letter written to the Star-Inde
pendent by Mr. Orth, pointing out the
fact that the school authorities were
emi<owered more than ten years ago to j
employ an instructor in Spanish for
the benefit, especially, of commercial !
students, is in full as follows:
Henry C. Orth's Letter
''l noticed your editorial of the!
ISth inst, headed 'Spanish in the High I
School,' and, do you know that on the j
29th of May. 1903, I (thep a member
of the School Board) introduced a reso- i
lution, which was passed, the purpose!
being the employment of an instructor !
to teach the Spanish language in the |
High schoolf The matter ended with,
the 'resolution.' My argument was as:
" 'Graduates from the commercial
section of the High school are eager
ly sought for employment by business
men on account of their proficiency in
bookkeeping, stenography an 1 type
" 'The Government by the fortune
of war. has within the past five vears,
acquired territory inhabited by people
speaking the Spanish language.
" 'The official and commercial lan
guage for generations to come, natural
ly will be of that tongue, and I ad
vance the suggestion that the study of
the Spanish language be added to" the
curriculum of thus department, there
by increasing its importance.'
"What an advantage it would have
given to our public school students, if
our school authorities had then acted!
'•lf our manufacturers and export
ers desire to trade with South America,
the islands of the Pacific Ocean ami
Mexico, we must copy the successful
tactics of the leading commercial na
tions of Kurope, where a commercial
representative must have a practical
knowledge of languages, not a swat
tering one. Better late, than never.
' 1 Respectfully,
"Henry G'. Orth.''
