FDR Is Century's Third Best
American Speaker, Hance Says

Roosevelt Asks Congress For Speed

President Roosevelt was ranked1
as third best American public speak-
er of the past century last week byI
Prof. K. G. Hance of the speech de-
partment at a meeting of the Na-
tional Association of Teachers of
Speech in Washington, D. C.
First place honors went to Rev.
Henry Ward Beecher, noted writer,
orator and clergyman, while William
Jennings Bryan, 1896 Democratic
presidential nominee was rated asI
second. Professor Hance named Ab-
raham Lincoln and Sen. Albert Bev-
eridge of Indiana as fourth and fifth
best speaker.
The criterion Professor Hance used
in selecting these speakers was their
effectiveness in using the various sit-
nations at their disposals. President
Rosoevelt, for , example, was given
credit for adapting himself to radio
In his address Professor Hence
praised Rev. Beecher for his five
speeches made in England in - 1863

which, it was claimed, were respon-
sible for turning British sympathy
away from the Confederacy. Bryan
was praised for his now famous "cross
of gold" address and Lincoln for hisj
skill in his debates with Douglas. 1
Beveridge was described as the
"spearhead of the Republican cam-
paigns'of 1898, 1900, 1902, 1904, 1906
and 1908."
Others ranked high in the list of
great orators were Chancey Depew,
corporation lawyer who has beenI
termed "America's greatest toast-
master;" Henry W. Grady, a former
editor of The Atlanta Constitution;"
Robert Ingersoll, famous agnostic
and author and the Rev. Phillips
Also incuded were Wendell Phil-
lips, lyceum lecturer; Woodrow Wil-
son for his "scholarly" style of ad-
dress, powerful in world affairs; The-
odore Roosevelt, and Robert M. La-
