Of Presidents and Things

Of Presidents and Things

Bruce Brown had a quiet, effective opening in his subject. Woodrow Wilson, and he carried on his speech equally effectively. His use of gesture was good and natural, and his conclusion was well framed. His chief fault was in his voice production; too often at the end of a sentence or clause, he dropped his voice to such an extent that it was a strain to listen to pick up what he said I formed the opinion that his speech was not sufficiently varied, although his material content was the soundest of the evening. He said more about his subject than did any Other speaker. Had he made more use of contrast and light and shade. I think he would have scored more heavily than John McLean.
