ment he will edit, Professor Fries
said, "The Tudor and Stuart period
from 1475 to 1700 which will be cov-
ered here at Michigan is the most
interesting and important in the Eng-

the literature of the period includes
both the Shakespearian and Miltonic
eras, and second, linguistically, the
period marks the beginning of mod-
ern English, and many of the present
problems will have to be investigat-
ed in it."
The need for supplements to the
New English Dictionary, or Oxford
Dctionary as it is better known,
was recognized as early as 1919 in
the report of Editor-in-chief Craigie
to the Philological Society of Eng-
land, under the supervision of which
the dictionary was being carried for-
ward. He pointed out that the Oxford
dictionary covered such a wide scope
from the beginning of the language to
the present that it proved impossible
to do justice to any one period. He
predicted that the next step in Eng-
lish lexicography would be he edi-
tion of "period dictionaries" dealing
historically with the development of
the language through diferent per-
Since his report in 1919, the Bos-
worth-Toller dictionary of Old Eng-
lish, or Anglo-Saxon has covered the
first period of the language's devel-
opment. Prof. Clark S. Northrup of
Cornell is engaged at present in the
editing of a Middle English diction-
ary which will cover the period from',
1175 to 1475. The next period of Tu-
dor and Stuart English from 1475 to
1700 will be covered in the dictionary
to be edited at the University by
Professor Fries. Prof. W. A. Craigie,
now at the University of Chicago i1
editing a dictionary of Scottish Eng-
lish and a dictonary of American
English to supplement the 'Oxford
English dictionary.
The Oxford English Dictionary was
begun Jan. 7, 1858 under the editor-
ship of Sir James Murray. When he
died Henry Bradley became editor-in-
chief, and upon his death Prof. W. A.
Craigie was called to Oxford as Bos-
worth Professor of Anglo-Saxon to
complete the work. The 'last section of
the 10 large volumes that comprise
the completed work appeared the
first week of January, 1928, exactly
70 years after its inception.
In addition to the Early Modern
English supplement to the Oxford
Dictionary, Professor Fries and his
associates are planning to produce a
grammar for this period for which no
adequate grammar is now in existence.
The grammar, however, will follow
the completion of the supplementary
dictionary, Professor Fries said yes-
Prices on tickets and bus passes
will be raised by the People's Motor
Coach company operating in Ann
Arbor following the granting of per-
mission to raise fares by the city
council at their meeting on Monday
The raise in ticket prices wa's
granted after officials of the company
bad submitted a report to show that
they have been operating at a net loss
of $120,654.80 since Feb. 1, 1925.
Under the new arrangement single
cash fares will continue to be 10
cents, but tickets will be 'sold 12 for
$1 instead of six for 50 cents and the
weekly pass will cost passengers
$1.75 instead of $1.25.
A revision of the present operating
schedule to decrease expenses and
stabilize operating efficiency was also
granted by the council at the request
of the bus company officials.
