Center In Work

Compiling Two Of Great
English Word Books
Fries Editing Both
Works Will Cover Early
Modern And Middle Pe-
riods In Language
Ann Arbor has become one of the
dictionary capitals of the world, ac-
cording to Prof. Samuel Moore of the
English department. Of the five
great English dictionaries at present
being compiled, two are located in
the English department of the Uni-.
versity, the Early Modern English
Dictionary, under the editorship of
Prof. C. C. Fries, and the Middle
English Dictionary, edited by Pro-
fessor Moore.
"As the name implies," Professor
Moore said in an interview, "the
Middle English Dictionary will give
a comprehensive review of the Eng-
lish vocabulary during the period
from about 1,100 to 1,450-the Eng-
lish of Chaucer and Wycliffe and
otther lesser known or anonymous
Will Trace Words' History
"Like its parent, the Oxford dic-
tionary, it will harness for this un-
dertaking the resources of the
World's Middle English scholarship
in an attempt to trace the history of
each word from the beginning to the
end of the period, showing its mean-
ings, forms, and dated occurrences at
short-time intervals throughout. The
Oxford dictionary; took half a cen-
tury for its completion. The Middle
English dictionary is scheduled to
take 10 years," Professor Moore said.
At' present it is in the third year
and the second phase of its history.
The first phase was a period of or-
ganization. During 1930-31 a biblio-
graphy of Middle English, the most
complete in existence was compiled,
and as a result, the full extent of the
work to be done was revealed, ac-
cording to Professor Moore.
Many Dialects Involved
Then came the problem of local
dialects. 'Middle English," Professor
Moore said, "is only ,a convenient
name for local varieties of English
used between 1,100 and 1,450. Be-
fore the work of editing could go
forward, these dialects had to be
studied and limited geographically.
The great difficulty was lack of ma-
terial. Very few Middle English lit-
erary texts are definitely localized
and dated, and when the problem
was faced by the editorial staff a
year ago, only about 40 dated and
localized documents were accessible
for dialect study.
"Although the problem had been
recognized for more than three-quar-
ters of a century, no single worker
had been able to show even approxi-
mately the limits within which each
dialect was used," Professor Moore
declared. Where individual effort
failed, the co-operative resources of
the dictionary have succeeded. As-
sisted by librarians and historians
here and in Europe, the editorial
staff has made within a year a col-
lection of over 240 dated and defin-
itely localized documents, 'drawn
from practically' every county in
England. All these have been anal-
ysed for dialectical features and the
results of analysis plotted on outline
maps of England.
Collection Is Big Problem

"During the present year, the first
in the second phase of its history, the
main problem of the dictionary is a
problem of collection,"- Professor
Moore said. "For each work in Mid-
dle English the editors must have a
large number of slips, each contain-
ing a dated quotation from a Middle
English text to illustrate its mean-
ing and form."
In its first stages, the dictionary
had already received and filed more
than 450,000 slips donated to it by
the Oxford Dictionary, and more
than 175,000 collected under the di-
rection of Prof. C. S. Northrup of
Cornell University. A great amount
of material remains to be read, and
for this purpose, the dictionary calls
upon voluntary ,services of qualified
scholars here and abroad, and for
Middle English technical literature,
upon the help of physicians, mathe-
maticians, and scientists.
Complex Administrative Problem
"The organization of this work is
a complex administrative problem,"
according to the editors, "calling for
careful correlation between small de-

learned yesterday from Dr. John Van
Oosten of the Fisheries Bureau.
Dr. Domogalla also visited Toronto
on his present trip. He is an author-
ity on the treatment of lake waters
for the purpose of destroying excess
growth of vegetation and also does
work of the same kind inconnec-

which growths of algae and, other
vegetation have developed, Dr. Van
Oosten said.
Mr.cSchneberger is engaged in fish-
eries investigations. He spent the
summer working on a life history of
the perch found in the lakes of
northeastern Wisconsin, and he is
co-operating with Dr. Ralph Hile, of
the local Fisheries Bureau, in collect-

Van Oosten.
U. Of M. Union Not
Only One Invaded
By The Unfair Sex
MONTREAL, Que, Oct. 11.-The
sanctity of the men's union at McGill
University has been invaded by the
eternal female. Today two freshettes
innocently wandered into the men's
dining room where never before had
the hand of woman set foot. They
collected their food without a blush
and sat down, two roses among
countless astonished t h o r n s. But
propriety was too strong. A horde of
employees descended upon the luck-
less maids and bore them gently but
firmly to the grill room.
But horror of horrors, a few min-
utes later an imposing procession
crossed the union lobby. First the
management with a pained look of
resignation, then the eternal femi-
nine, demure a n d self-possessed,
seemingly unconscious of the long
traditions so carelessly shattered. The
day was won. The male forces re-
treated in order to erect defenses for
the next invasion.
The victors declared they preferred
eating in the union to getting their
feet wet. Inthe face of this logic the
men are dividing their time praying
for a drought and seeking some ar-
gu~ment to refute, or force to repel
this latest encroachment upon their

Freshmen To Get
First R.O.T.C. Drill
Starting This Week
Freshmen enrolled in the Reserve
Officer's Training Corps are getting
their first taste of actual military
drill beginning this week in the vari-
ous drill periods, it was announced by
post officers. Last week they were
taught some of the fundamentals of
individuals, and will now proceed
with formations that include eight
men, or a squad.
The program of instruction in the
drill sections, which meet one hour
each week, follows a gradation from
the instruction of each man as to
the principles of posture, how to
dress a line, the facings, and other
elementary movements.
The instruction of the squad runs
well into the middle of the semesteri
nd includes the formations and
hovements that are the basis of all
military movements, no matter how
large. Squad drill is the very back-
bone of efficient military organiza-
tion and so must be thoroughly mas-
tered before instruction continues for
larger units, officers say.
The students are then taught the
movements of platoons, and by the
close of the second semester have be-
gun to study the begmnnings of com-
pany drill.
According to military men, the feat
of beginning with the movements of
individuals and ending well advanced
in company drill requires the greatest
co-operation and willingness from
the students, for it is a great deal of
material to be covered in one year of
school at the rate of only one hour a

the subject, "Scientific Fish Culture,"
Dr. Hubbs will tell how science is
helping to increase thefish supply
in lakes and streams, citing as an ex-
ample the work of the University in-
The material for his talk will be
taken largely from the institute's
first bulletin, "Methods for the Im-
provement of M i c h i g a n Trout

authors. Copies of the bulletin may
be had by caling at Room 1039 Muse-
ums Building. Aecording to Dr.
Hubbs it is the first book of its type
to be published and'also represents
the first project of its kind to be un-
dertaken by the University.

Debate Season Opens
With Several Veterans
With a number of veteran debators
back and several promising newcom-
ers trying out, this year's women's
debate season will scon be under way,
according to Mr. Floyd K. Riley,
coach of the women's squad.
There are a few important changes
in the debate policy which ought to
be noted, he went on to say. One of
these is that women's debating will
be an entirely extra-curricular activ-
ity, instead of its being treated as
part of a debating course, as it has
been in previous years.
At the first meeting of all women
who are at all interested in debating,
to de held within the week, this pol-
icy will be stated. It has been ar-
ranged also that everyone who works
with the team will be given a chance
for some experience.
The team will be prepared on two
subjects, one the regular varsity de-
bate question, which has not yet been
selected, and the other that chosen
by the Michigan State League with
whom the squad expects to hold a
number of debates. Their question is
"Resolved, That the representatives
in the lower house of Congress and
the state legislatures shall be elected
by and in proportion to the member-
ship in the occupational group."
Charles E. Hayes, of Detroit, was
elected president at the annual meet-
