H1e was only 11 or 12 years old'
but he saw very clearly that much of
the jealousy and fighting among the
people of his native city was due to
the fact that they could never be
very friendly with each other because
they did not understand each other's
languages," he said.;.
"Of course the idea of having all.
the people of the world give up their
own languages and adopting some
one language for the whole world was
not even worth thinking about,"said
Mr. Stilman. "It simply could not be
Nationalism Retards Use
National pride and jealousy would
not allow the adoption of one existing
language, said Mr. Stillman, and
even if it had been possible, Zamen-
hof was eager to make a language
that would be more simple than any
of the existing tongues.
"He would make an artificial lang-
uage, but one with granmar quite
regular and simple, with a vocabu-
lary drawn from words common to
many of the important European
languages," said Mr. Stillnman.
It ,was a huge task, and Zanenhof
worked at it quite consistently for
about 17 years, according to Mr.
Stillman. In the end he was satis-
fled that he had a language that had
in it fal- thequalities necessary, he
said. the
In 1887, when he was 28 years old,
Zamenhof published a booklet in
Russian entitled, "An International
Language by Dr. Esperanto. The
word, fesperanto," Mr. Stillman ex-
piained', means in the new language
"one who hopes," and it was soon
applied to the languaP. itself. The
language has been sio6_known ever
Easier to Pronouce
Several things make Esperanto'
easier than other languages, accord-I
ing to Mr. Stillman. "In the first
place," he said, "only sounds coin7"
,mon to most languages are used in
Esperanto. For instance, the Eng-
lish th sound is avoided, because it
doesnot -occur in many of the im-
portant languages and consequently
is hard for many people to pro-
'In the second place," he said,
"spelling and pronunciation are in'
strict conformnity in Esperanto In
other words, one letter or one group
of letters always has the same
Mr. Stillman illustrated the defi-
ciency of English in this respect by
showing how the sound of the letters
"ough" varies in the words "dough,
bough, through, sought, and cough."
Grammer Simplej
Other qualities which make Esper-
anto an easy language, according to
Mr.. Stillman, are the regularity of
all verbs and the system of sufhes
and prefixes which has no variations.
"And such simplification does not
make a language any less expressive
or useful," he said. "There is abso-
aIl ZUA1 Sq 'so biulMou SIo4lN
pronunciation of a language always
correspond exactly or by having all
the verbs in a language perfectly
regular in all their forms.

ed itself to all the uses to which it
has been put;-and many kinds of
periodicals from medical reviews to
purely literary magazines are being

Plans For Russian
Trip Being Formed
Harlow Stevens, '34, of Ann Arbor,
has recently been appointed local
representative for the organizing of
a gi oup of Michigan students. to
make an unofficial trip to Soviet Rus-
sia this coming summer with a group
of business men, educators, journal-
ists, and students from other parts
of the country. The group, which
will be known as the "Russian Sem-
inar," will study the conditions in
Soviet Russia, and by traveling ex-
tensively will observe the situation as
a whole.
The investigation will include both
city and rural life, and will extend
from Leningrad in the north ,to the
Black Sea and the Russian Riviera
in the south. The newly devolped
industrial cities along the Don and
Volga rivers will be visited as well
as the farm projects of the Ukraine.
Following the Russian study, the
group will go to the Near East and
the Balkans, observing conditions in
Roinania, Albania, and later in Italy,
as well as Constantinople and Athens.
The party expects to be gone from,
