GERARD Professor STEPHEN LEACOCK, McGill University NOWHERE ELSE IN AMERICA It is a sober statement of fact that not elsewhere in New York or even in America, can the lecture opportunities be equaled which the League offers this year. Momentous events affecting the world's history and our country's destiny are now taking place. These events and the new relations the Nation is assuming will be discussed by the most distinguished and competent men and women who can be secured. Public speech now has new and greater importance. It is impressive as the printed page cannot be. The League's officers are determined that this year, after rounding out nearly a quarter of a century of educational influence, the League shall do its utmost to enlighten and inspire those who come to its lectures. WHAT CAN I DO? Those who must serve their country at home often ask this question. The clear, decisive answer at this moment is, INVEST IN THE LIBERTY LOAN. The officers of the League urge its entire membership to buy Liberty Bonds to the limit of their ability. $5000. of the League's Reserve Fund will be invested in these bonds. Only a few days remain until October 27, during which the bonds may be purchased. Further information regarding them may be obtained at the League office. SPOKEN FRENCH Ability to converse in French at this time of the great world struggle has a new meaning and is of special political importance to Americans. For this reason the League has arranged with Mlle. ALICE BLUM to give two free demonstration lessons to League members immediately following the first Monday (November 5) and the first Thursday (November 8) lectures of this season in the Hudson Theatre from 12.15 to 1 o'clock. Mlle. BLUM is a graduate of the University of Paris, and has a new and original method of teaching French which she has used with great success during this summer in the army camps. The important feature of her classes is the inspiring loud spoken drill in unison which gives quick mastery of pronunciation, diction, rythm and cadence. If sufficient interest is shown, classes will be formed for a series of ten lessons before the Christmas holidays. Mlle. BLUM'S book, An Oral French Method, may be seen at the League office, where further information will be given on request.
