SAYS 6HAI9IMAB METHOD
IS A WASTE OF TIME
Professor Brumm Discusses Subject
of "The Case Against Eng.
"I am thoroughly convinced that we
are wasting much valuable time on
English grammar, and that the gram-
mar methods employed has done much
to render the speech of youth inartic-
ulate and barren," said Prof. J. R.
Brumm, of the rhetoric department, in
his lecture on "The Case Against Eng-
lish Grammar" at 5 o'clock yesterday
in the Natural Science building.
"The rules of grammar never have
changed and never will change a bad
speaker into a good one," continued
Professor Brumm. "English grammar
does not teach the correct use of Eng-
lish, but rather belongs to higher
learning, which investigates the laws
of language development.
"The primary aim of English in-
struction in secondary education
should be to develope the pupil's abil-
ity to use the vernacular coherently
and to read the printed page intelli-
gently. How many high school stu-
dents can expose themselves to a con-
versational draft without heing strick-
en with intellectual cramps?
"When educators have once grasp-
ed the fact that the student's speech
is determined by the kind of discip-
line he receives in oral speech and not
by the writing of formal compositions,
the solution of the English problem
will not be far to seek. It will mean
a systematic effort to provide youth
with a better speech environment.
Nor will this be the task of the Eng-
lish teacher alone but of all teachers
and other persons who may influence
the speech habits of the young.".
