Role in Human
Students of speech are at the
center of responsibility for the
improvement of human relations,
Prof.. Horace G. Rahskopf, Presi-
dent of the Speech Association of
America, declared yesterday.
Speaking at the Speech Assem-
bly on "Speech and Problems of
Survival," Prof. Rahskopf said
that survival has come to depend
jncreasingly on an understanding
of human relations, which center
PROF. RAIISKOPF listed five
major concepts of speech which
have influenced people in this era:
1. Expressionism. This con-
cept can refer to the meaning-
ful content of behavior, the
bodily changes which reveal
bodily attitudes, individual pe-
culiarities, or the creating and
formulating of subjective ideas
in the private recesses of the
mind, Prof. Rahskopf explained.
2. Behaviorism. This concept
also considers the individual, but
is more concerned with the physi-
ological reactions, Prof. Rahskopf
said. It treats everything in terms
of stimuli and response, the rela-
tion of the speaker and his envir-
onment, he added.
3. SPEECH as solely a process
of communication. This theory
sees speech as the sum total of
the processes by which we influ-
ence each other; we have a social
order in communication, Prof.
Rahskopf explained. However, this
concept does not stress the im-
portance of the individual suffi-
ciently, he warned.
4. Social interactionism. Multi-
influences and cross currents
are covered in this theory, Prof.
Rahskopf said. Its proponents
believe the only way we have of
responding to ourselves as we
see others respond to us is
through the act of speech, and
thus we become organized minds
and selves and personalities, he
5. Symbolism. This is the newest
trend among the philosophies of
speech, Prof. Rahskopf stated.
Semantics and the consideration
of words as symbols are treated
* * *
DEDUCTING SOME common
trendlor deelopment from these
theories of speech which points
towards the future, Prof. Rahs-
kopf declared that speech is tak-
ing on a more social and dynamic
concept. "Emphasis has shifted
from speech as language to speech
as a basic human behavior."
Speech is also becoming niore
distinctive, in terms of the indi-
vidual speaker, the total setting
and the form of speech, he said.

EARPHONE INSTRUCTION-Listening to their lessons, students
learn languages by the new "oral method." ,Platter-patter, de-
livered by a machine called the "language master," uniformly in-
structs students in the essentials of grammar and pronounciation
in a new program instituted by the language departments on
U' Language Courses Invaded
(By ral Approach' Machines
New York City's water short-
age is a problem of surface water
not ground water according tc
R. Maxwell Leggette, authority or
underground water, who spoke
"New York City obtains one-
tenth of its water (approximately
100 million gallons a day) from
ground water sources and is get-
ting the same amount of watei
from them now as forty yeas
ago," Leggette declared.
AREAS SUCH as California,
where excessive use has depleted
ground water supplies and low-
ered the water table, must resort
to artificial recharging of ground
water, Leggette continued. This
is done through water spreading
and the use of return wells.
Water spreading .is the diver-
sion of water from a stream at
the flood stage into a permeable
basin or dry stream bed. The
water is then absorbed by the
ground into what constitutes an
underground reserv9ir, he ex-
In the New York area return
wells are used to replace water
which has been used for air con-
ditioning or other industrial pur-
poses and is then pumped back
into the ground water reservoir.
Care must be taken not to raise
the water table so high that it
comes in contact with plant roots
which would absorb a large part
of it, he warned.
*' * *
ANOTHER METHOD of aug-
menting water supplies is through
the use of liquid sewage which
has been naturally purified or
chemically treated to render it
drinkable, he added.
Some coastal areas have the
problem of salt water seeping into
their wells, Leggette stated. They
use so much water that the water
table falls below sea level and the
salt water flows down into the
wells. These and similar situa-
tions in heavily irrigated regions
emphasize the chief function and
problem of underground hydrol-
ogy, which is to determine how
much water can be pumped out
year after year without appreci-
ably lowering the ground water
supply, Leggette concluded.

A new method of language
teaching is being used for the first
time at the University.
Through the use of a machine
called the "language master" an
"oral approach" is being taken to
the teaching of a language. The
approach consists of teaching the
student his lessons orally, by in-
structing him in the spoken lang-
uage, rather than just his printed

THE "LANGUAGE master" ma-
chine consists of three parts; a
wire recorder, record player with
attached earphones, and a micro-
To Get Free
Three weekends of free enter-
tainment are in store for the
namer of the Union's "Interna-
tional Table," if he gets his entry
in before noon today.
The three weekends,, including
two movies and a dance, are the
prize for the best name of the
table in the Union Taproom.
The table, dreamed up by SL's
Human Relations Committee and
the Union to increase social con-
tacts between students of differ-
ent nationalities on campus, will
be available every afternoon where
students may discuss affairs and
events of each other's countries.
Any number of entries will be
accepted, and must be mailed or
turned in to the union student
offices before noon today.
Entry blanks must contain sug-
gested name for the table and con-
testant's name, address and phone
number. Winner will be announc-
ed in tomorrow's Daily.
The prize includes tickets for
two to "Topper Takes a Trip,"
Jan. 13 or 14 in Architecture Audi-
torium; the Bluebook Ball, Jan.
21 in the Union Ballroom; and

taneously. A language record is
played, which the student hears
through earphones connected to
the apparatus. He is asked to re-

After the completion of the
record the student will be able
to play the entire recording
back, and compare his perform-
ance to that of the record.
SIX OF THE "language mas-
