IV. WRITERS The courses in the School of Expression have been the means of unfolding the creative energies and of developing individuality in style of able writers. Dramatic courses are as helpful to writers of plays as to actors. Style in writing is developed by systematic and progressive stimuli. Laws of writing are deduced from a study of the universal principles of art and are applied to the writing of themes. Rules of rhetoric and grammar related to universal laws are thus relieved of their mechanical tendencies.

V. PUBLIC SPEAKERS

(Public Speakers' Diploma) Practical courses to develop the power to think when upon the feet and to secure a vocabulary of delivery as well as of words. The student receives practical exercises and studies to awaken a true ideal of oratory. These develop mental power and grasp, logical method and control of feeling, as well as of voice and of body. Laws of expression applied to oratory and style in delivery.

Courses: 1. Conversations. 2. Extemporaneous Speaking. 3. Story-telling. 4. Discussions. 5. Debate. 6. Oratory. 7. Voice. 8. Platform Art. a. Preachers

The development of the preacher is a peculiarly difficult problem of education. Mere knowledge will not do the work. Mind, voice and body must be thoroughly trained and brought into unity; imagination and feeling must be awakened and spiritual powers realized.

9. Naturalness established to correct mannerisms. 10. Bible Reading. 11. Literary Interpretation of Poetry.

Special classes and work are arranged in both the summer and winter terms. (See Special Circular.) b. Lawyers

Lawyers have found the courses in the School of Expression of great advantage, and several courses on Saturday afternoons and on certain evenings during the week are arranged for members of the legal profession.

Courses: 1. Extemporaneous Speaking. 2. Voice. 3. Discussions. 4. Methods of Orators. 5. Art of Speaking. 6. Argumentation and Debate. 7. Oratoric Style. c. Lecturers

Those preparing to become lyceum lecturers and entertainers are recommended to take the courses for Public Speaking and Dramatic Expression. Special courses are adapted to individual needs.

VI SPECIAL DEPARTMENTS In addition to the preceding courses prescribed for graduation with different diplomas, special work in class and with individuals is arranged for those who have peculiar difficulties, or are hindered from taking diploma courses. Work in any subject is given when needed, to suit, as far as possible, the convenience of students. Many persons now filling high positions were thus started in their preparation by the School.

I. PREPARATORY COURSES Preparatory Courses, to make up deficiencies, either for Advanced Standing or for regular requirements:

a. All summer work counts toward regular diploma courses. (See March number of “ Expression.")

b. Special September Preparatory Term opens the first Tuesday in September. (See March number of “ Expression.")

c. Four hours on Saturday for students and teachers occupied during the week.

d. Special evening courses. (See Evening Circular.)
