political unity in China depends
in part upon her solution of the
language problem, John DeFran -
cis, former chief of the OSS China
Political Section, said yesterday in
a lecture at the University.
Speaking under the sponsorship
of the department of oriental lan-
guages, DeFrancis said that "he
various dialects of China, if re-
duced to a Roman alphabet such
as is used in America, would
emerge as at least six distinct an-
guages."
Trracinig the growlth of a lan
'guage reform movement o' the
'30's, DeFrancis said tat the Rus-
sians were able to latinize the Ci-
nese language in Siberia, reducing
illiteracy in those areas. Later
this reform spread to a small ex-
tent into China, he said.
De Francis predicted that when
the Civil War is settled, conserva-
tive elements in the country will
force a nation-wide attempt to

teach all the people to read and
write the traditional charrIeter
language.
