start young EVER SINCE I SERVED on a Carnegie factfinding mis sion to South America I have been something of a oneman crusade for a more effective teaching of the languages in our own schools and colleges especially our schools which is where the bulk of the job must be done In the past 20 years I suspect I have dealt with this theme at least a half dozen times in these weekly radio commentaries In my editorials and in my talks I somehow manage to get back to the subject if theres even half a pretext for it This time my decision to re turn to a favorite topic was triggered by my

their German by exposure to their nursemaid and the family cook VIVID IN MY MEMORY is a visit in the home of my daughter in Frankfort Ger many some 7 years ago The older daughter mentioned Nancy was a scant year and a half old at the time But even at that tender age she served as my interpreter and trans lator in dealings with the cook and maid Where was my high school and college German My daughter comforted me though by admitting that Nancy had been a gobetween for her and her domestic help wliile she was learning the conversational German which comes so easy to youngsters This story
