4. Not sufficient time in the
school program to learn-a for-

5. Many foreign language tea-

or competent;
6, Many students don't think
foreign languages are -relevant
to their needs;
7. Some say that one can al-
ways find English speaking peo-

8. Foreign languages are gen-

Other criticisms reported in pro-

2. Even the traditional foreign
language requirements for grad-

A Thought to


We read a bit of good, sound
logic the other ,'. Y..r*. ,,no had
simply written these words: "A
smooth sea never makes a skill-"
ful mariner."
There is much truth in this
statement. A sailor becomes
skilled only' as he guides his ship
through raging seas and stormy
voyages. Anyone can plot a
course through a calm-but only
.the best can face a storm, wea-
ther it-and bring the ship
safely to harbor.
It is through the storms of ex-
perience that the mariner be-
comes skillful. Isn't that true
with life? The hard and difficult
days tend to make each of us a
better person-better fitted for
Everyone's life will be filled
with many calm voyages, but
there are sure to be storms and
gales, because they are part of
life, too.
BER: Life is, a sea-both calm
and stormy.
