             Wits and Words  (Revisited)
  Two  years ago, The  Bobbs-Merrill Co., Inc. pub-
lished a book by Edwin  Newman,   Strictly Speaking.
Mr.  Newman,   television commentator,  anchorman,
host, critic and writer, asked:
       Will America be the death of English?
Probably!
  Strictly Speaking, a favorite of mine, is entertain-
ing, yet thought-provoking. The book reminds us that
we have lost some eloquence of expression. We often
fail to speak or write with directness and simplicity.
