Off-Campus Students Name Council Officer Library Cornerstone Laid; Record of Times Preserved -reign Language Training Offered o CMC's College Elementary Students Central Michigan College was one of the first college elementary training schools to offer foreign language training to its students. The program started here in 1943. Spanish has been the language offered with ihe exception of two years when French was taught. It is being taught io the children in grades two through six by Elizabeth Etnire of the college foreign language department. Each grade has a 15 minute lesson daily. In the second and third grades the emphasis is upon training the children to understand the spoken language. In ihe fourth grade more emphasis is placed on teaching the children to express themselves in the language. The emphasis in ihe fifth and sixth grades is on reading, speaking, and writing the language. The Spanish lessons are correlated with the regular classwork as much as possible. In the second grade, for example, considerable time is spent with a large doll house and its furniture to corre late with the natural interests of the children at this age level. The children learn to "play house" in Spanish as well as English. The children learn the Spanish language with considerable ease and are very enthusiastic about ihe program. This is one of ihe reasons for starting ihe foreign language study early. In addition to teaching the children to speak, understand, read, and write the language, the following have been set up as some of the aims and objectives of such training: to provide fuller opportunities for the growth and development of the individual child; to lay the foundation for later language study; To install in the young child an early interest in and acceptance of children of other national backgrounds; to acquaint them with the folklore, children's literature, music and other arts of the country or countries whose language he is studying; and to develop in the child an intelligent attitude toward language.

He is past president of the Men's Glee Club. "Talent Quest" is a feeder program for the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour. The winner is determined by post cards sent in by viewers. by Don Seiterbo A cornerstone is not just a piece of masonry bearing' a date, name, or symbol, but also a record of the prevailing society at the time of the building erection. Behind the masonry exierior of every cornerstone there is a box, usually copper and air tight, that contains historical material relative to the building. Last Thursday the cornerstone for the new library was laid. This cornerstone contained college literature such as the bulletin, directory, social calendar, Chippewa, and other college publications. These articles created a comprehensive picture of current college life. Also included were a list ol the library's book selections and magazine subscriptions and the autographs of the student librarians. Faculty publications were added. Among these were two books, an original manuscript, and numerous articles. Rolland H. Maybee, the college historian, compiled the material for the cornerstone. In the box Dr. Maybee endeavored to preserve a verbal and pictoral history of Central, vintage 1954. Even copies of ihe Detroit Free Press and the Mt. Pleasant Times News were included to round out the information pertinent to ihe times. But alas, poor LIFE was not preserved for posterity. CMC LIFE was not among those cherished volumes placed in the cornerstone. C'est la VIE.
