Name of Department Is Altered;
Professor Sanders Is,
Named Head.
A reorganization of the depart-
ment of speech, accompanied by a
change in the name of the depart-
ment, was effected recently, accbrd-
ing to an announcement from the
office of the president of the uni-
versity. -
Prof. Henry A. Sanders, former-'
ly of the Latin department, has
been made head of the speech de-
partment which is now to be called
speech, phonetics, and general lin-
guistics. The change was arranged
partly because of the fact that
there had been considerable, over-
lapping and confusion between the
spech ,department and the courses
in phonetics and linguistics, which
were formerly allied with the Latin
Another reason for the change
was a general dissatisfaction a-
mong iembers of the teaching
staff with the policies under which
the department was being adminis-
tered, according to unofficial state-
ments by faculty members.
