suitable for pupils of junior high school age. The Junior Speech
Arts has been written to meet this demand.
The importance of the subject of speech in the high school
curriculum is no longer under controversy. Every pupil who has
the advantage of a speech course evidences immediately, both
in his school recitations and in his outside social relationships,
the results of his training.
The various speech arts set forth in this book are presented from
the pupils' standpoint. The exercises are formed to meet their
definite needs. All explanations, advice, and suggestions are
worded in simple phraseology so that the young people may
readily understand both the theory and the practice of the
different forms of speech work. The reading selections are
varied and of the kind that appeal to young people of the junior
high school age. The topics for talks are of present-day, vital
