Prof. A. Allen
To Depiet Bird
Hnting TodaV
Lecture At Hill Auditorium
To Be Given By Cornell
Hunting the voices of vanishing
birds with a microphone, sound mir-
ror, and motion picture camera will
be graphically described in a lec-
ture by Prof. A. A. Allen of the orni-
thology department of Cornell Uni-
versity today at 8:00 p.m. in Hill
Auditorium, according to Prof. H.
W. Hann of the zoology department.
The lecture entitled "Hunting with
a Microphone," will'be well illustrat-
ed with four reels of sound film with.
colored lantern slides between reels,
Professor Hann said.
~ The material for the lecturenwas
derived from an expedition under-
taken last year by Professor Allen
and several associates. After leaving
Cornell in the early part of the year,
Professor Allen's party covered near-
ly 15,000 miles in its search for birds,
starting in Florida and ending in
MIontana. On this trip, they have
completed, according to Professor
Hann, what is probably the most
unique collection of pictures and
sound recordings of birds that has
ever been made.
The success of this new experiment
is largely due to a new sound appa-
ratus developed at Cornell by Prof.
True McClean of the engineering
college, Professor Hann said. The
expedition met with great difficulties
in attempting to record the sounds,
he said, because of unusual weather
conditions encountered; the wind
continually interfered with the re-
cording and the noise of waterfalls
almost prevented any recording at
Professor Allen has devoted his
life to the study of birds, according
to Professor Hann, and is considered
one of the leading bird authorities
in the country today. He will be en-
tertained during his stay in Ann
Arbor by Professor and, Mrs. Hann.
Photos Of Textiles

An exhibit of photographs of tex-
tiles developed by the Style and De-
sign Bureau of Marshall Field and
Co., of Chicago, will gp on display
in the third floor exhibition room
of the College of Architecture today.
The exhibit, which is on tourof
various schools and museums in the
country, will-be one of the most out-
standing exhibits of general interest
to be heldin the architectural school'
this year, Prof. Wells I. Bennett, di-
rector of the College; stated yester-
day. The display includes modern
prints and patterns for fabrics as
designed by the design staff of a
modern department store.
Cloth styles, including silks, cot-
tons, rayons, and draperies are
shown, while new trends in color
combinations have been tested and
worked out. New linen and cotton i
fabrics for summer wear and a large
group of new chintzes are included.
The whole work is an experiment in
modern prints and cloth styles.

weighs about 20 tons, has six machine gun 'nests, four twin engines of at least 1,000 horsepower, a wing

Radio And Movies Standardize

Pronunciation, Densmore


ciation to become the same in all
parts of the country, stated Professor
Hand in hand with the increasing
correctness of pronunciation has
come an increasing interest in the
problems connected with words. The
Pronounce-a-Down now being held in
Detroit at which Professor Densmore
is one of the judges has been re-
ceived with great interest, he said.

Undoubtedly the movies and radio
tend to standardize America's p'o-I
nunciation in grooves that are aca-
demically correct, a tendency regret-
table since it takes the vitality from
the language, commented Prof. G. E.
Densmore of the speech department.
"Provincialism, the southern ac-
cent, the western drawl, all tend to
make the language grow, to keep it
alive. When pronunciation becomes
standardized as obtains in certain
classes of Englishmen the spirit of
the language tends to die."
All the modern devices that bring.
regions in contact with each other
aid in rubbing off provincialism, the
automobile and telephone as well as
radio and movies.
The movies and radio, however,
Professor Densmore went on, are be-
coming increasingly powerful in
making America conscious of correct
pronunciation and usage. Broad-

casters, especially news commenta-
tors are careful to use dictionary
pronunciations and hearing them in-
evitably causes listeners to adopt' this
academic bias.
Children are especially influenced
because many of the words they
hear are entirely new. Not having
old habits to forget, the impression
left on them is peculiarly strong.
The words dictator and tRoosevelt
have undergone striking changes
since events brought them into prom-
inence. Dictator was commonly pro-
nounced dic' ta tor until recently but
the more correct one of dictator is
now superceding it. Similarly the
President's name was called quite
generally Ruse' e velt, but common
public usage has caused it to be
modified to Roesvelt.
In view of these influences it seems
inevitable that a comparitively few
generations will cause our . onun-
