To Be Latin Expert
Herbert Hoover as a statesman, as
an engineer, and as a relief adminis-!
trator during the World War is known
throughout the world; but Hoover as
a Latin student, as a scholar trans-
lating old musty volumes of ancient
times is known only to a few.
In the Transportation Library of the.
University may be found the first
edition of "De Re Metallica," a trans-
lation of the original book written
by the Saxon writer, Agricola, in 1556.
The book is a monumental treatise
on early mining operations ante-
dating the 16th century, and is re-
plete with old wood-cut drawings on
the metallurgical processes of those
times. There are more than 600 pages
in the volume, and the actual transla-
tion is extensively annotated by Mr.
Hoover's own investigations into the
history and development of mining.
The book was published at Salisbury
House, London, and is worth more
First Assyrian Di
By JOHN P. OTTE, Jr.
rhApproximately 10 years from n ow,
there will be published an Assyrian
Dictionary, the first of its kind, which
has been described as "one of the
most important projects in the whole
range of humanistic research."
The project,. undertaken by the
Oriental Institute of the University of
Chicago in 1921, has been worked
upon by many of the most noted
scholars known to the study of seme-
tics. At present there are 26 famous
men and women at work studying all
the semitic cuneiform documents
Studies Economic Documents
Ellen Moore, former instructor in
the oriental language department of
the University, and semitic scholar,
has been studying, for the past three
years, the Persian and Seleucid eco-
nomic documents in the interest of
discovering all possible meanings of
the words contained in those writings.
Of Dr. Moore's assigned task of
translating 11 large volumes, she has
at this time nearly completed the
work on 10, and it is expected that
the work on the eleventh will be
finished in the near future.
At present, after the project has
been in operation for 12 years, the
institute's steel filing cases include
approximately 1,500,000 cards on
which are written the origin and
various meanings of the 17,840 words
Within 10 Years

To Contain 20,000 Words
Professor Chiera, of the University
of Chicago, former head of the group
in charge of the dictionary, stated
that the completed compilation would
probably contain more than 20,000
words, which would be tieated seven
words to the page in the six large
Those cards which have been ar-
ranged have already proved to be a.
great aid to research. For the first
time in history all available informa-
tion concerning a semitic word has
been collected under one roof.
One professor, studying the Persian
and Chaldean records covering a pe-
riod of 3,000 years, has found evidence
of an economic crisis which resulted
in the doubling of the interest rates,
a sharp increase in prices, and a
change in the relative values of silver
16 Years Of Research
It has been estimated that 16 years
of research will be necessary for the
carding of the texts, and an indefi-
nitely long period to be required for
the word treatments, and further
years to be needed for the publica-
tion of the six large and highly tech-
The technical efficiency of the staff
of the Assyrian Dictionary may be
realized when it is considered that the
last volume of the New Egyptian Dic-
tionary, started in 1897, came from
the publishers in 1931, 34 years after
the undertaking of the job, while the
compilers of the Assyrian Dictionary
hope to have their volumes edited by
1944, not more than 20 years after

Jack Sharkey Now Has
Country's Longest Bar
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 3. -For-
mer heavyweight champion of the
world, Jack Sharkey, now has another
claim to fame. He is the proprietor
of the longest bar in the United
Located less than two blocks from
the Boston Garden, the bar stretches
to the unbelievable length of 145 feet,
and in the smoky haze that pervades
the place, it is impossible to see from
one end to the other.
Sailor Jack has this to say con-
cerning this thing of beauty, "The
Tavern," which opened its doors some
weeks ago "It's not like the palmy
days when I licked Schmeling, but
now I get a steady income, and in
spite of the high overhead - seven
bartenders going all the time -we've
done pretty well."
