Excerpt from Order of Exercises in Elocution: Given at the Cook County Normal School <p/>Precision is the first element of grace, and, in im proving the bearing of the body, is the first thing to be secured. Symmetry of body being the first requisite, all bad habits, such as the carrying of one shoulder higher than the other, head leaning to one side, hips uneven, etc., are to be corrected. Let this be done by showing a child definitely what is required of him. Vague directions, such as, Stand up straight, Hold your head better, or Do stop bending over, are worse than useless. Bring the correct habit, which you wish to substitute, clearly and with regularity into the consciousness, and the bad habit will gradually disappear. <p/>About the Publisher <p/>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
