Public Speaking - How To Utter The Speech Correct And Effective Speaking
Uttering Words Clearly EnunciationWords are made up of sounds. Giving these sounds is called articulation. To speak so that people will understand you, you must give every sound its place, with distinct, full utterance. To do this you must pay heed to your consonants, to your initial and final consonants especially.No fault is more common than indistinct articulation.
Public Speaking - How To Utter The Speech Platform Decorum
Much depends upon first impressions and opening words. Often an audience is either won or lost by the first half dozen sentences of a speech. Some men as they come out on the platform seem scared or worried, some vain and egotistical, some pompous and puffed up.
Public Speaking - Exercises
Use your imagination. Are the pictures in your mind clear and vivid? Do you feel the mood of the selection.
Public Speaking - The Impromptu Speech
The impromptu speech is made on the spur of the moment. At a dinner, a town meeting, a director's conference, one is called upon to speak. There is no time for a carefully constructed, nicely worded discourse; the speaker must take his feet, pull himself together mentally, and, using the ideas and words that come first, express himself as best he may.
Public Speaking - The Informal Address
The terms talk, speech, and informal address overlap. They all have reference to public discourse. But it would be difficult to say whether a given discourse should be called a talk, a speech, or an address.
Public Speaking - The Formal Address
The formal address is almost as much in demand as the informal address. Informal address goes about in working garb; formal address dons its best clothes for some special event. A formal address is always carefully prepared. It may either be read or spoken without manuscript; but, however delivered, most likely it will have been composed laboriously at leisure.
Public Speaking - The Oration
Just as there is no precise line that marks off the formal address from the informal, so we cannot say that there is any exact point at which the formal address takes wing to mount into the higher realm of oratory. There is, perhaps, common consent that what we call the oration is the highest and most eloquent form of spoken address.
Public Speaking - Debate
The increase of interest in high school debating is fortunate. It is a mark of the growing tendency to make education an active force in fitting boys and girls for the duties and opportunities of citizenship. A democracy such as ours draws its life blood from the full and free discussion of matters of vital concern to the individual and to the State.
Public Speaking - Debate (continued)
In fact hundreds of well-arranged arguments that are made every day are not consciously outlined at all. The friend who talks you into giving up a day's work for a picnic; the teacher who persuades you to go to college; the family doctor who induces you to change climate for your health none of these, no matter how logical his reasoning, writes out an outline for his talk, or even thinks of an outline.
Public Speaking - The After-Dinner Speech
After-dinner speaking is much practised in America today. Clubs, classes, societies, fraternities, and civic committees of every kind and description come together to eat and drink, and then to listen to speeches suited to the time and place. The youngest as well as the oldest are called upon for after-dinner speeches.
Public Speaking - Everyday Conversation
There is nothing so common as talk; yet how uncommon it is to hear people talk well! We cannot quite include conversation as a phase of public speech, yet much of our everyday conversation is public even though the audience be small.
Public Speaking - The Spoken Drama
The right kind of education is that which fits one to get the best out of life for himself and to be of the most service to the world. We sometimes forget in our schools that a great part of a man's life is his spare time, and that our education fails if it neglects to prepare students to spend it well.
Public Speaking - The School Organization
There is no better means for the practice of public speaking in all its forms than the school society. One finds nowadays students banded together for almost as many purposes as are their parents and older brothers and sisters in grown-up organizations in the community. Here the best work in debate, dramatics, and in general speaking is done.
Public Speaking - How To Make The Most Of A Public Meeting
As a rule the best speeches can be made only at public meetings. So the success of the speech is closely bound up with the character of the meeting and the conditions under which it is held.
Paris - Governmental Machine
A HOT August afternoon, and the cage slowly mounts with a handful of travelers to the top of the Eiffel Tower. We are not all sight-seers ; at any rate, I can answer for one. The Paris plain is so hot that the ascent is, with me, a last despairing effort for a mouthful of air. It has unexpected advantages now that I am on the move. I see Paris as I have never seen it before.
Paris Of The Faubourgs
PARIS being a great manuracturing city, its plebs have naturally had the ambition to rule the roast. This is what has given it the importance it has had all through French history.
Fashionable Paris
IN October and November fashionable persons pour into Paris for the season. From this time forward,for about six months, town will be their head-quarters. Sometimes they make short winter trips to the southern watering-places, but they are still more or less in touch with the capital. The immigrant swarm includes all sorts of outlandish figures, pleasure-seekers of the world at large.
Parisian Pastimes
THE Parisian is more given to pastimes than to sports. The distinction is, in his view, that pastimes are made for man, whereas man is notoriously made for sports. He carries a sport as far as it may go, for sheer amusement, and stops there. All the rest that tends to the ideal perfection of the athlete he counts but labor and sorrow. This is in harmony with his entire outlook on life.
Paris - The Life Of The Boulevards
THE very paving stones of great cities might sometimes cry out, Let us have peace. Some of them may well complain that the foot of man makes too short work of them, considering the time and trouble it took them to grow. Those of the boulevard are surely entitled to this grievance, as they are ground to premature dust by an army everlastingly on the march.
Artistic Paris
ART, literature, the drama, are not only the greatest spiritual forces in France ; they are among the greatest of national industries. A man may purpose to live by them without having to feel that the first step is to run away from home. There is nothing that need shun the light in the pursuit.
Newspaper Trade - Training And Opportunity
WHAT does a newspaper career hold out to young men m the way of interest and advantage? This can be answered generally: It offers an education greater than any college or university can afford ; it puts them in close touch with the great affairs of the universe ; it makes them broadminded and rouses an intellectual activity not inspired in any other profession or trade.
Newspaper Trade - The Trade
THE printing and publishing business stands sixth among the industries of the United States, being exceeded in output only by meat-packing, foundries and machine shops, lumber, iron and steel and the production of flour and meal.
Newspaper Trade - The Editor
Much merit as there is in a well-organized business office, success belongs to the editor. He makes the goods. If his ideas and output are not salable the best economic management and most zealous advertising hunting fails. To prescribe what an editor must be is a difficult and delicate undertaking. To describe his task is easier.
Newspaper Trade - The Reporter
The man is the reporter upon whom falls the chief burden of the trade. He is ubiquitous and versatile, possessing a heaven-born quality, called the nose for news. Like much talent in other lines it may lie latent, awaiting some discoverer, but once made known it flourishes.
Newspaper Trade - The Reader
THE reader of the newspaper in America is a legion. He is closely followed up by the editor and publisher, morning, noon and night, with an extra allowance on Sunday. Such an appetite as never Gargantua had is that of the American for news.
Newspaper Trade - Industrial Side
THE distance between upstairs and downstairs is far greater than the physical measurement implies. To the force assigned to take care of the material side of a news-per establishment the people upstairs are a strange and inexplicable lot.
Newspaper Trade - Advertising
ADVERTISING is the great art of attract ing attention. Life would be a dreary desert indeed without the charm of interest aroused by the unusual, the startling or the bizarre, all of which terms fit advertising. The Pharaoh who built the pyramids and carved the Sphinx, whatever his motive, has advertised Egypt for 3000 years.
Newspaper Trade - Illustrating
THE newspaper office since 1884 has become a more than complex affair, due to improvements in mechanics and enlargement of its scope by the addition of illustrations and the production of supplements in color, halftone and gravure.
Newspaper Trade - Circulation
COMMENTING on the slow death of a once great newspaper, which was kept alive by an apparently invincible advertising patronage, Joseph Pulitzer remarked that the first thing fa newspaper got was circulation, the last thing advertising.
Newspaper Trade - The Country Paper
AMERICA is the fertile home of the rural press. Nowhere in the world can be found so many communities provided with one or more local newspapers, devoted to telling the neighbors what is going on about and among themselves. There are about 20,000 rural weeklies in the United States conducted with varying degrees of enterprise and profit.
