This speech and scrap book undertakes to present a collection of live and interesting statements, talks and speeches for those interested in coming into contact with practical affairs and stirring events. The endeavor has been to compile and put into the student's hands constructive and interesting speeches, important facts and useful material to which he, or anyone aspiring to speak or write, can turn for ready reference and find assistance in preparing talks and arguments, statements and briefs, of various kinds.
When this kind of collection and arrangement, combined with the speech making material, was first thought of to accompany the speaking course, it was a matter of surprise to find that something of its kind had not appeared long before. And if the material in these pages—especially the material in the scrap-book section-means to you, the student, what it has meant to those who collected it through a period of years, you will live with it; it will take hold of you, and you will turn to it for hope and inspiration again and again.
This speech book-its value and interest-gains its significance as a work in collaboration. The editors sincerely thank every speaker and writer who has graciously assisted either by outright preparation of addresses especially for this volume, or by indirect aid.
