Third Bureau
Opened To Aid
A Bureau of Industrial Relations,
similar to the one established at
Michigan in 1935, is being established!
at Stanford University, it was an-
nounced at the recent conference of
the Princeton University Bureau. The
three bureaus now in operation at
Princeton, Michigan and Stanford
are serving the East, Midwest and
Pacific Coast as centers of informa-
tion regarding the relations of em-
ployer and employe.
Prof. John W. Riegel, director of
the Michigan bureau, stated that'
each bureau was striving "to ap-
proach the problems involved in the
field of industrial relations in a sci-
entific and non-partisan spirit."
The bureaus are concerned pri-
marily with constructive efforts by
management and employees intended(
to improve productivity and adjustI
partisan interests, he added.1
Each bureau arranges conferencesI
to which business executives are in-
vited to discuss problems of person-
nel. Studies are made of how idi-

Modern Dependence On Greek
Culture Is Outlined By Blake
"It's all Greek to me." Years ago, in birth and essence. In many of

fi a.,\ ,,,, ,,,;

when many high school and most col-
lege students studied Greek, that ex-
pression was used by the Greek-less
students as a jibe at a subject they
weren't able to enjoy, according to
Prof. Warren E. Blake, associate pro-
fessor of Greek. Today that phrase,
applied to anything means, "I don't
understand this and it isn't worth
the trouble to find out what it's all
about." This charge in usage is one
of the reasons why Greek has ac-
quired the reputation of being ex-
tremely difficult and not worth while.
The supposed difficulty of Greek is
due primarily to the unfamiliar ap-
pearance of the characters. "How-
ever" Professor Blake said, "10 of the
24 letters are almost identical with
ours and the rest are easily learned."
Fraternity men and sorority women
already have the alphabet at their
command. Independents can easily
acquire complete mastery of thej
characters in an hour or two.
But why study it? One often re-
peated reason for the desirability of
Greek is this. It is useful in gaining
a better understanding of our own
language, particularly the scientific
terms. Professor Blake stated thatI
"medical terms are seven eighths
Greco-Latin in origin. For example,
etymologically an astigmatic person
is one who literally cannot see a
point, bacteria are tiny rod-shaped
objects and pediatrics has nothing to
do with corns but refers to the medi-
cal care of children."
But there is another more import-
ant reason for studying Greek. Mod-
ern astronomy, biology, botany, his-
tory, mathematics, philosophy, po-
etry, political science and zoology not
only have Greek names but are Greek

these fields we have progressed be-
yound the Greeks' beginning only
within the last few centuries, and
one glance at the contemporary scene
makes us wonder whether we have
made any progress in some of the
other lines. It has been said that "we
are all, consciously or unconsciously,
pupils of Plato and Aristotle," and
sitting on pedestals erected by the
Greeks, Professor Blake concluded.
Well, as they say in Mesopo-
tamia, the Yanks went and did
it again. By vanquishing their
most dangerous and persistent
opponents, the Giants, they
have fully earned the title and
prestige of world champs of
