Scholars Here
Slowly Finish
2 Dictionaries
Work Toward Completion
Progressing; LanguageE
Period IsCompiled
By FRANK HOPKINS
Eighty-two years ago at Oxford
University a group of scholars sat
clown to make a dictionary. Thirty-
two years later the letter "A wad.
completed, "J" and "K" were passed
over about 1922, and in 1928 the last 1
portion of the completed work was ,
sent to the printers.
The labor of many men over a
period of 72 years had culminated
with the presentation to the world at
large of the Oxford Dictionary, the
most exhaustive work of its kind yet
published. Yet long before the com-
pletion of the Oxford Dictionary the
editors were concerned about its in-
evitable inadequateness.

defendants in the government's espionage trial in New York, are shown
as they entered Federal Court to hear Guenther Gustav Rumrieh, who
pleaded guilty, describe the bungled machinations of German spies in
this country. Voss and Glaser were handcuffed together.

New Co-Operative
Symbol Of Activity
In Movement Here
An indication that the Michigan
campus is becoming increasingly co-
operative-minded is furnished by a
new eating co-op organized with the
help of Rev. H. L. Pickerill of theI
Church of Christ Disciples.
The co-op, situated on Maynard
street, has 14 members. By working#
four and a half hours a week, their
board Costs only three dollars. All
Booking, dish-washing and purchasing
is done by members.
Co-operatives on campus now num-
ber five. In addition to the new eat-
ing co-operative there are the Michi-
gan Wolverine, co-operatiye cafeteria,
with more than 600 members, and the
Rochdale, Robert Owen, Socialist, and
Girls' Cooperative Houses, with about
20 meibers each.
According to Rev. Pickerill, who has
been very active in the cooperative
movement here, at least twofnew
houses will be organized next fall.

University Given
$6,000 By Alumni
Two gifts totaling $6,000 have been
received by the University; it was an-
nounced yesterday.
A bequest of $5,000 from the late
Miss Coralynn Allen, '85, of Cassop-
olis, will be used as a loan fund for
the assistance of needy women stu-
dents.
James G. Hayes, alumnus from
Pittsburgh, Penn., contributed $1,000
to supplement texitbook lending
library funds.

Making a dictionary, it seems, is
like playing a game of golf-there is
always a lower score to shoot for. In
this instance the editors knew that a
72 year period would see the adoption
of many new words into English us-
age and the discovery of others which
they had been unable to find. To allay
the same weaknesses in future edi-
tions, American universities were
asked to cooperate in turning outs
"period" dictionaries. Two of these,
the Middle English Dictionary, cover-
ing the language from 1100 to 1475,
and the Early Modern English Dic-
tionary, involving the period from
1475 to 1700, have been under way at
Michigan since 1930.
More than 800 volunteer readers
have been enlisted for work on the
Middle English Dictionary, and have
sent their findings in to be used by
!the present staff of 10 editorsand
about 50 WPA and NYA wdrkers
lodged on the fifth floor of Angell
Hall.
The Early Modern Dictionary, con-
taining 125,000 words in 8,800 pages,
will be finished in something like ten
years, Prof. Knott said, while the
Middle English will require at least
five additional years.
