Oxford To Publish 'American English'

Stanley Quartet To Perform

Prof. Philip C. Jessup of Colum-
bia University's law school yester-
day called for leadership from this
country in submitting legal dis-
putes to the International Court of
Delivering the second of five
speeches in the Thomas M. Cooley
lecture series, Prof. Jessup de-
clared, "The United States might
well take the lead in convincing
governments the submission of a
case to the International Court is
not an unfriendly act.
"They might also be convinced
the persistence of an unsettled in-
ternational dispute may be more
disadvantageous than an adverse
judgment (by the court)."
The reservation hampering the
application of international jus-
tice, he said, stems from a memor-
andum on the United Nations
charter advocated by Sec. of State
John Foster Dulles in 1946.
U.S. Retains Power
The amendment, adopted by the
Senate, stipulates the United
States has full power over what
cases affecting this country may
or. may not be submitted to the
Court for jurisdiction. Since then
five other countries have followed
suit: France, India, Liberia, Mexico
and Pakistan.
"When the Senate adopted this
amendment . . . it was worried
only about (the United States) be-
ing made a defendant before the
International Court," Prof. Jessup
pointed out.
"No one raised the possibility
that the United States might be
hampered in securing through the
International Court the vindica-
tion of its own rights against
other states."
Guatemala Dispute
Pointing to the case where the
Guatemalan government seized
the property of the United Fruit
Co., Prof. Jessup said the United


Prof. Albert H. Marckwardt of
the English department has au-
thored "American English," which
will be published by Oxford Uni-
versity Press on March 6.
Relating the history of the
growth and development of the
English language in America from
colonial to the present era, Prof.
Marckwardt illustrates how Amer-
ican English reflects the tradition
and character of Americans.
Prof. Marckwardt examines the
language processes which have
made American English distinctly
different from its British counter-
part. He points out specifically

the features of British English

He also explains how words

that have been maintained in the [ taken over by Americans from

vocabulary, pronunciation, and
overall structure of American Eng-
Names Lend Glamor
Americans tried to glamorize
their monotonous existence in
pioneer days through elegant
names. As an example, he points
out the word "saloon" is the equiv-
lent of the British "public house."
In another chapter, Prof. Marck-
wardt deals with the terminology
created by physical and environ-
mental changes.

foreign languages :haye changed
in meaning, after having been
integrated into American speech.
Prof. Marckwardt has also in-
cluded a chapter on the American
practice of choosing names for
places, streets, and even people.
Chicago, an Indian word, means
"place of wild onions."
In conclusion, Prof. Marckwardt
suggests possible future develop-
ments which would influence
American English.

The Stanley Quartet, in resi-
dence at the University, will pre-
sent a concert at 8;30 p.m. Tues-l
day in Rackham Lecture Hall.
Their program will include
"Quartet in E flat major, Op. 33,]
No. 2," by Haydn; "Five Move-
ments for String Quartet," by

Webern and "Quartet in B flat
minor, Op. 67," by Brahms.
The quartet was established in
1944 by its present first violinist,
Professor Gilbert Ross. Its other'
members, all on the faculty of the
School of Music, are Gustave Ros-

He said that MSU President
John A. /Hannah said recently
there would be no ' interference
with the State News.
William F. Mclrath, secretary
to the MSUJ publications board,
told The Daily that nothing un-
usual had happened at all.
.Nobody's goingto stand for any
censorship of the News, he said.
Nobody has any interests in try-

He said this kind of probe hap-
pens regularly in any newspaper.
"Somebohy gets a little bit upset
over a letter or an article, and it's
"thrashed out" for a while and
it's all over.
Dean King when asked to give
his side of the story declared the
case was closed and that he had
no comment.
Problem "Not Yous
"The problem is not your prob-
lem," he told The Daily, "but
rather the problem of the whole

subsidizes the paper.

Prof. Plant Comments
Prof. Marcus L. Plant of the
University's Law School said he
did not think that Smith's letter4
was libelous. ,
The language is pretty rough
in places, he said, and it shades
pretty close to libel, but Dean
King is a public official and this
mitigates it somewhat.
He said if he were a lawyer
considering the case, he would be
glad to take it.
IFC Decision
eDisa oroints
MSU Student
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the text
of Gordon Smith's letter to Michigan
State University's Dean of Students
Thomas King.).
To the Editor:
I am deeply disappointed with
Dean Tom King's decision to over-
rule the IFC Executive Board in
the ATO case. The Exec Board was
set up to rule on cases which were
fraternity ground functions and
the criteria for a group function
was approved by King. Now he
maintains that the criteria was
not adequate and he has reversed
the IFC decision.
His. ability and willingness to
overrule IFC demonstrates the
complete lack of freedom and ef-
fectiveness under which this body
labors. They are, in effect, mouth-
pieces for the administration. As
long as their decisions coincide
with Tom King's they have "com-
plete autonomoues power" but
just so soon as they disagree they
are immediately overruled.
This policy covers not only the
IFC Exec Council but extends to
all student judicial bodies. "Let
the student convict himself but be
sure he is convicted" seems to be
the motto.
I am very much afraid that if
this shortsighted policy is contin-
ued student judicial organizations
will become ever more of a farce.
The men who make up these judi-
cial bodies are mature and intelli-
gent and theyhave the best inter-
ests of the university in mind.
That is why they are chosen. It is
going to become increasingly diff-
cult to get this type of individual
to serve, because he will revolt at
becoming a yes man.
I believe it is the university
policy to let students have judicial
bodies so they may learn to be-
come better citizens. If this is so,
then the powers granted to these
organizations should not be re-
tracted at the whim of one admin-
istration official. The whole future
of student government is at stake
here, and I only hope that enough
of us realize it so something may
be done.

Extensive Experience
Ross has had extensive concert
experience in Europe and America,
as both a soloist and quartet play-
er before coming to the University
in 1942. He has also taught at
Cornell University and Smith Col-
Rosseels joined the School of
Music faculty last year, after
teaching in summer sessions at
Mills College, Brigham Young
University, and the Aspen Insti-
tute. He played with the Paganini
Quartet since its founding in 1946,
appearing in over 1,200 concerts
in the United States, South Amer-
ica and Europe.
Courte also played with the
Paganini Quartet, and was viola
soloist of the Brussels Opera Or-1
chestra and the Brussels Philhar-
monic Orchestra. He was also
tviolist of the Artis Quartet and
the Gertler Quartet, both of Brus-
sels. Courte joined the University
and the Stanley Quartet in 1951.
Has Toured Europe
Edel has toured Europe and
America with the Manhattan and
Roth Quartets. Graduate of the
Manhattan School of Music, he
also studied in France; at Fon-
tainbleau and Paris. He joined the
University faculty in 1947.
On April 1 the quartet will high-
light another concert in Rackham
Lecture Hall with the first Ann
Arbor performance of Leon Kirch-
ner's "Quartet No. 2." This work
was commissioned by the Univer-
sity and dedicated to the Stanley
Tuesday's concert is open to the

States wanted restitution made
and believed the case was a mat-
ter for the International Court.
However, he related, "Guatemala
argued that the application of
their Agrarian Reform Law 'con-
stitutes an act of inherent sov-
ereignty . . . (for which they)
could not consider . . . the possi-
bility of making, this case a matter
for international discussion."
College Tries'
Exp eriments
In Education
Woman's College of the Univer-
sity of North Carolina is presently
carrying on an experiment in
teaching methods, prompted by
the increasing numbers of students
enrolling in American colleges and
Financed by the Ford Founda-
tion, the trial program is using
biology classes as theexperimental
media. Six of 18 sections have
been designated as the test groups.
Students in these groups attend
lab once a week, and also meet for
a one-hour period during which
they may question the instructor.
The students are then quizzed on
the material for which they were
Students in these sections do not
attend lecture meetings, but they
are held responsible for material
on a reading list which may be
obtained in the library.
During the year, the students in
the experimental courses will be
tested on the same basis as other
students in the course.
North Carolina hopes to deter-
mine, on the basis of these tests,
whether students at the freshman
level can do the necessary work
independently, without attending
