Whitaker, professor, of German language and literature. "Objectives of the conference," Dr. Skiles said, "are to bring foreign language into focus at UK,, but in such a manner that all languages can be in- terpreted in the widest possible manner." The' UK conference was begun by Dr. Skiles 1? years ago with work in the fields of the classics, Germanics, and the Romance languages. It grew gradually with the addition of Oriental, Middle East, and Hebraic categories. "The teaching of language ii colleges and universities is an entirely new category for this year's conference," the director said. Outstanding high school teachers, college and university educators, state department personnel, archaeologists, and others were asked to submit papers and attend the conference to present them, No papers will be read In absentia, according to the program.
