MEMORIAL TRIBUTE READ
Eight Men Taken Into Sociological
Society at Dinner Hield in New
Women's League Building
Prefacing his address with an
eulogy of the late Charles H. Cooley,
for many years head of the soci-
ology department, Prof. Kimball
Young of the University of Wiscon-
sin spoke on "Language and Cul-
ture" at the annual initiation ban-
quetof Alrha Kappa Delta, honor-
ary sociology society, at the Wom-
en's. League building Wednesday
night.
Professor Young's remarks were
supplemented by Prof. Arthur E.
todd of the sociology department,
who termed the late Professor Coo-
ley " a "true scholar and a real
friend." A statement in memorial
to Cooley was read as a public trib-
ute, praising the work of the fa-
mos Michigan sociologist and cred-
iting him with many of the achieve-
ments which he attained in profes-
sional and private life.
Eight students were initiated at
the banquet. Those honored were:
Isaac Avramoff, Maxine Buene, Dor-
othy Griffith, '30, Mildred Kuenzel,
Grad, Elma Lundahl, Elmer Mitch-
ell, Margaret Sabom, and Pauline
Unger."
Speaking of the relation of lan-
guage to symbolism, Prof. Young
said, "In the case of signs we care
nothing for what they are them-
selves but everything for what they
mean or represent. Men operate in
a world of meanings laid down by
one whom they accept as an au-
thority, and they live in a world
created by the cultural concepts
which they accept."
"John Jones, a plain man, is one
day a week a member of the Mystic
Order of the Vale of Prophets, he is
imperial, exalted, royal, ancient,
expressing his vicarious enthusiasm
*fo', royalty or ancientness, neither
of which he has, and he glories in
possessing in a world of gabbiness
a secret. What people come to be-
lieve they act on as if it were true,
and it then is true in its social con-
sequences, which is the actual cre-
ating of ther myth of the world.:
The distinction between fact and
hotion ris the distinction between
what men believe and what they
communicate."
"We come finally to build our
whole world of reality into verbal
symnbols. We come to depend on
their meaning, and if we accept
them they come to be true. As an
example we see the power of belief,'
the social atmosphere of the Ori-
ent, over the stranger who yields
himself at last to the faith of those
around him, more by sympathy
tuandby conviction. Language
comes to have a veneration by its
mere feeling-tone, and mystical and
hereditary ideas are as real as ob-
jets for those believing in them." I
"We cannot separate language
from culture, nor the forms of
thinking from language: if Socrates
hJ1l' been teaching in Chinese, his'
fundamental philosohical categories
would have been different from his
teaching as it actually was in
Greek, because the whole social
content and communication of

thought is different."
Secretary Davis Asks
Berry To Conference
Profesor Charles' Scott Berry of
the school of Education recently re-
ceived an invitation from the Hon-
orable James J. Davis, Secretary of
Labor, to participate in a confer-
ence on child welfare which is be-,
ing called May 18 at Mooseheart,
Ill.

by 20 of the leading psychologists

child welfare and education in the
United States, and Professor Berry

cial subject.
The main purpose of the confer-
ence is to consider the most ef-
fective type of school to develop for
the children that are being cared
for in the orphanage at Mooseheart.
Professor Berry is leaving tonight
