telephone, we are quickly coming
into an international age," said
Saul J. Jaffe, '21, who spoke yes-
terday on, "E speranto, The Inter-
national Auxiliary Language of the
World." Jaffe is one of the lead-
lng Esperantists of the country to-
day and has had considerable
success irt the conduction of courses
in that language.
"The talking movies," Jaffe con-
tinued, "as well as closely connect-
ed communication betvi'een the
various parts of the world, show us
the need for a language that can be,
understood by all, which is simple,
easy to learn' and pronounced.
This position is filled by Esperan-
to."

In an cifort to bring practising
engineers and instructors in tech-
nical schools to its summer session
the engineering college is distribut-
ing 10,000 specially - illustrated
catalogues--the first of their kind
in the University--concerning the I
summer session in general and th '
special courses to be offered.
This is the first time in the
history of the Engineering college
that attempts are being made to
develop courses for industrial men
and for teachers in technical
schools, both secondary and pri-
mary. In addition to the general I
courses usually offered at the sum-
mer school special research eourses
in fields connecting with modern
industries are to lye offered this
summer, aecording to Dr. Hopkins.
The illustrated booklet, which
will be off the presses within the
next few days, is a unique one. It
is the first thoroughly illustrated
catalogue to be issued by the Uni-
versity. There are views both of
the University in general and of
the laboratories and special fea-
tures of engineering study.

GENERAL MOTORS MAKING TESTS

, .
-.. .

Jaffe went on to say that nation-
al pride, prejudices, and jealousies
prevent the adoption of any na-
tional language for this purpose, so
that as a natural evolution, Espe-
ranto was devised by Dr. L. L.
Zamenhoff, a Polish physician.
Eperanto is not really an inven-
tion, though it has been termed
such. It does, however, comprise
the best of all the languages in the
world formed by selection of root1
words and those found in the most
tongues.,
Esperanto is entirely phonetic
and has but one accent, which falls
at the end of each word. Fine
shades of meaning can be broughti
out in this tongue which cannot be;
brought out in English without the'
use of several words. Cat, for in-f
stance, shows neither masculine or
feminine -gender, while the Esper-
anto words, cato and catino clearly
display gender.!
Library Holds Exhibit{
As a feature of his lecture, Jaffe
sent a collection of various forms
of Esperanto literature to the Uni-
versity to be exhibited here. This
exhibit, which will continue today
and tomorrow in the lobby of the
Library, contains advertising mat-
ter, grammars, dictionaries, period-
icals; posters, bulletins and otherF
material written entirely in Es-
peranto.
It was announced by Dr. Francis
Onderdonk, of the architectural
school, that a course in Esperanto
will be offered beginning next Tues
day. The first meeting will be at
4 'clock in room 1021 A. H.

S !w, deep in the Kongo the native sons
believe that; anybody who has an explorer for
dinner will absorb all the brains, courage
and other success-assuring virtues of the unfor-
tunate victim.
We wish wecouldsay thcsamc ofChesterIlds
-that all their popularity is conferred upon
whosoever smokes them. Frankly, however,
this is not invariably true, Several Chesterfield

smokers have recently been d iscove'red wbo
are not ambassadors, steel kings, or (vei bIk
presidents;
But-since Chesterfields are so satisfy ig ,mild
and differnt-we'll all of us cOmaizu toa cjoy
them for these sound smokc-virtues alone.
Popularity? Six million smokers arec enjoying
'em today. Such popularity must be deserved.
Make it six million and one?.
