Iowa City 910 Sat Interest in languages is growing T AM NOT GUESSING when I tell you that theres a life in terest in language teaching in our part of the world My last commentary on this subject has drawn more mail than Ive had from one offering in recent years Just by way of refreshing your memory if you heard that previous talk or orienting you for what will follow in this little visit if you didnt hear the earlier one let me recall my main points of emphasis I began by stating the view that Latin America and most other countries are doing a very much better job of mastering English than we are with any foreign tongue Then I theorized on why this is true First I listed motivation Theres a selfish reason for learning English which is in disputably the worlds common est and most important second language Once French may have had this distinction In the future it could be Russian But today it clearly is English So other countries dont have to debate whether their second language should be English or something else Thats all de cided for them Theyre ready to get to work on it In contrast we in America havent yet de cided this question We dont know for sure what is our sec ond tongue WITH MOTIVATION estab lished were ready to move on into methods And under this head the one important fact to be observed is that most other countries start teaching language at an early age well down in the elementary grades whereas we wait for high school and often college Linked with this accent on tender age is a disposition to emphasize conversation as dis tinguished from language in the written form The youngster starts talking the new language on his first day of contact with it and he keeps it up The fine points of grammar come later The big idea is to talk and be understood to communicate to converse I told how this approach had worked out in the case of a couple of my Germanborn and Lebanon reared grandchildren who at the time of my com mentary in question one 7 one 8 years were working on their third and fourth languages French and Arabic English and German had been mastered more or less in selfdefense from their parents and their nursemaids respectively But thats enough by way of recall IT WONT SURPRISE YOU to learn that four out of five of those from whom I heard were connected with education from elementary to university gradu ate level With the letter from one superintendent in a com munity of around 40000 was a marked page in an Office of Ed ucation guide This marked sec tion defines the case so very well that I am quoting it here The new role of U S and in world affairs is making it in creasingly necessary for large numbers of our citizens to be able to communicate freely with other peoples Military government and our business assignments abroad exchange programs of students teachers and represent atives from many other fields Continued on Pagt 2 North Iowa Partly cloudy Mon day night and Tuesday Cold er Monday

planet will be about 26 million miles away the Russians said The latest Soviet space shot second in eight day aimed at investigating condi tions on and around the planet whose perpetual mantle of clouds has made it a mystery to scientists The space station is moving along at 25000 miles an hour and at last report was nearly 200000 miles from earth Scientists and officials on both sides of the iron curtain hailed the Venus shot as the greatest space feat since the Soviet Un ion orbited her first Sputnik three years ago It adds to the Soviet Unions other claimed ac complishments which include hitting the moon with a rocket photographing the far side of the moon and orbiting the sun THE SOVIET announcement indicated the Venus launching was an extremely complex op eration It sdid a

or going into orbit around it A Mikhailov director of the Pulkovo Observatory reported that the distance between Venus and the earth is now 528 million miles but is shortening each day by almost 600000 miles In the second half of May Mikhailov told Tass the Soviet news agency the rocket will make its closest approach to Venus 26 million miles and it is possible that this brief span of time

Ribbon Creek death march tragedy McKeans article entitled Harry Truman Was Right When He Slammed The Ma rines led to the banning of the magazine here by Maj Gen R 6 Luckey command ing general of Camp LeJeune Truman in 1950 said the Ma rine Corps is the Navys police force only and they have a propaganda machine that is almost equal to Stalins When I sing the Marine hymn I believe eviry word of it Luckey said It is part of my responsi bility as commanding general that nothing bt publicized on the base that is derogatory to the best traditions of the Ma rine Corps He said the Mc Kean article attacked the timehonored traditions of the Marine Corps and added our enlisted personnel would won der if these traditions were true Luckey said In a boxed chart accom panying his article McKean
