Speech Class
Tells One How
To Pronounce
Radio Instruction Given
On University Station
By Prof. ,Densmore
"Chauvinism," said the young girl
on the University radio hour, "is de-
fined as 'blind devotion to a lost
cause,' and it originated after the
fall of Napoleoh." This would have
passed as a harmless and absolutely
inoffensive statement had it not been
for a somewhat facetious remark
from a studio bystander.
"Hmm," he said, "so that's what
they're 'calling Roosevelt supporters
now-Chauvinists, eh?" Since, how-
ever, that is off the record, it is prop-
er to say that nothing interferred to
mar the beauty of the informal and
entertaining broadcast dealing with
the correct pronunciation of words-
a program conducted by a regular
University diction class.
First Attempt
Prof. Gail E. Densmore of the
Speech Department and his proteges,
for the first time in the history of
the University broadcasts, set out a
little timorously yesterday at 2:10 to
interest the radio public in an un-
tried field. It now seems that this
program has quite an auspicious fu-
ture, for not only did the professor
and his students adddan atmosphere
of informality and ease, but got past
15 words without hesitation.
The class took care of abdomen,'
'abeyance,' and 'abject,' quite easily,
but after spending several minutes
discussing the derivation and pro-
nunciation of the word 'automobile,'
Professor Densmore casually reas-
sured the student that perhaps it
would be better, after all, to call it
plain 'car.'
Great Interest Shown
Inasmuch as there is promise of a
great deal of interest in this regular
Tuesday afternoon broadcast (over
WJR), Waldo Abbot, Director of1
Broadcasting, has had a, number of
mimeographed copies made of the
1,000 words most frequently mispro-
nounced - alphabetically arranged,
and in the order in which they will
be discussed by his radio class. These
can be secured at the Morris Hall
studio by the person interested, or by
sending six cents in stamps to cover
the cost of mailing.
In case the radio was turned off
yesterday, don't forget to draw a
circle around 'stem' in the word
'abstemious.' This is to remind the
aspiring 'enunciator' that this syllable
is pronounced 'steam'-as in water

Aetion On County
Pay Next Monday
No action on recommended salary
increases in the county building will
be taken until next Monday, the
Washtenaw County Board of Super-
visors decided yesterday afternoon.
The proposed salary increases ranged
from 10 to 25 per cent.

its report Tuesday but the matter,
was postponed until a fuller attend-
ance is present before it is put to a
vote. Edward D. Foster, chairman
of the committee, said the raises
were designed to meet higher costs.

Forty-one persons would be affect-
ed by the increases which would
mean an additional cost to the,
county of $9,182 a year. The raises
would restore the salaries of clerks
to the pre-depression level, but higher
officials would still be below that
