One of the contributions we believe a college may take to this widespread public discussion is to furnish trained student speakers, capable of providing provocative and critical analyses of current public questions. Since 1927, Oberlin College, through the Forensic Union and the Department of Speech, has offered such a service. This service is available without charge to organizations within a reasonable distance of Oberlin; there is no tariff on public discussion. Organizations are requested to furnish transportation for the speakers or to reimburse them for their traveling expenses, but otherwise the service is a contribution of Oberlin College.
