Word Endings
Discussed By
L. L. Rockwell
Dictionary Editor Speaks
To Linguistic Institute
At Luncheon Meeting
"The Ending 'le' in Early Modern
English" was the subject of a talk
given by Prof. Leo L. Rockwell, as-
sistant editor of the Early Modern
English Dictionary, at the regular
luncheon meeting of the Linguistic
Institute held yesterday on the ter-
race on the second floor of the Union.
"Word ending in 'le' appear every-
where in the English language," Pro-
fessor Rockwell stated, "And
they are especially obvious to me af-
ter making a study of them. There
are more than 1,000 of them in the
modern English words."
Professor Rockwell went on to show
how 'le' is associated with the in-
dividual's vocabulary. Using his own
life as an example, he pointed out
thtt in his pre-school days he first
became acquainted with 'le' words
such as bubble, icicle, twinkle.
At a slightly older age came words
associated with his Sunday School
lessons. Among them were disciple,
and apostle. Throughout his school-
ing new 'le' ending words came to!
his attention. A later stage was the
extension and reinforcement period
when words already in his vocabulary
took on different meanings. Double
for example underwent a number of
changes such as double meaning
twice, double meaning a two base hit
in base ball, and double as a term in
bridge playing.
Professor Rockwell pointed out
that every year words ending in 'le'
were added to the English language
as a whole. The highest peak in a
graph of the number of new words
was reached in 1590.
An interesting phase of words with
'le' endings is that they include verbs,
nouns and adjectives, he said. Some
of these even serve two purposes
such as people and to people; nibble
and to nibble.
The next luncheon of the Lin-
guistic Institute will be held at noon
Tuesday when Prof. Norman L. Wil-
ley of the German department will
speak on "Struiberg's Work in Mex-
ican Linguistics.
At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Prof. J.
M. Bolling of Ohio State University
will lecture on "Homer and Linguis-
tics" in Room 2003 Angell Hall.
Crazed. Father
Slays Roomer,
Shoots Steel Worker After
Killing Wife, 6 Children,
Then Commits Suicide
-(AP)-Celestino P. Gonzalez, 36, ap-
parently maddened by jealousy and ill
health, police said, hacked his wife
and six children to death with an axe
today, then shot and killed Jose Aro,
a roomer in their home, and him-
Gonzalez killed Aro in the locker
room of the Inland Steel Company,
where both were employed, as work
shifts were changing and in the
presence of several other employes.
No words were exchanged as Gon-
zalez walked up to Aro, fired four
shots in his body, and then turned
the gun on himself. Both died in-

Police had some trouble identify-
ing the two men and then learning
their address.
Finally they went to the Gonzalez
home but found the doors locked and
Late this afternoon they returned
to the home and found it still locked,
and battered in a door.
On the floor and in the beds of
the small house were the body of
Mrs. Gonzalez and their six children,
all dead, all hacked and mutilated
with a bloody axe which lay nearby.
The children, ranging in age from 2
to 17 years, were four boys and two
girls. There was no particular evi-
dence of struggle and police surmised
that Mrs. Gonzalez and the older
children had been killed as they slept.
As they reconstructed the crime,
Gonzalez arose before the rest of the
family-Aro had gone to work at
midnight-obtained the axe and
killed his family. Then washing the
bloodstains from himself and taking
his pistol he went t th steel com-
pany. Aro's shift had just come off
;work and the latter was changing
clothes as Gonzalez rushed in and
killed him.
Police said Gonzalez had been in
ill health and they assumed he either
had lost his mind or had a fancied
or real cause for jealousy of Aro,
who had lived with the family for
some time.

Summer Session Education
Conference Meets For
Seventh Time
The seventh annual Summer Edu-
cation Conference, dealing with issues
in Michigan education, }will be held
July 13 through July 17, by the edu-
cation school, Dean James B. Edmon-
son of that school, chairman of the
conference, announced yesterday.
It is anticipated, Dean 'Edmonson
said, that this year's conference will
be, attended by several hundred teach-
ers and school officials. Among the
topics to be considered during the
conference are "The Financing of
Education" and "Academic Freedom."
During the past six summers the
education school has sponsored a two-
day conference on significant issues.
The interest taken in these confer-
ences has been very encouraging, the
dean said, and there now appears to
be a demand for a longer period for
the informal study of problems of im-
mediate concern to educational lead-
"To meet this demand," Dean Ed-
monson said, "the School of Educa-
tion is sponsoring a five-day con-
ference as a part of the program for
the 1936 Summer Session. While the
conference is planned primarily for
supervisory and administrative offi-
cials, the sessions are open to any-
one interested in educational prob-
lems, including teachers, school board
members and officers of parent-teach-
er associations."
State Superintendent Eugene El-
liott and his associates will have
charge of the program Thursday
morning, July 16. The policies of
the State department of public in-
struction will be reviewed at that
time. Dr. A. J. Phillipps of the Mich-
igan Education Association will have
charge of the program on Friday
morning, July 17.
There will be no fees or require-
ments for participation in the sum-
mer conference. The speakers will be
drawn very largely from the staff
of the Summer Session, including a
number of visiting professors from
other institutions.

ment, is a new technique showing the
smallest number of factors which n
are needed to express correlations be- n
tween items in a test or between tests t.
in a battery, the speaker said. s
"A second major problem of mea- t
surement is the knowledge and pre- i)
diction of growth. For many years r
people have been comparing a. per- r
son's score with that of the average, e
and giving him an I.Q. which shows d
what per cent of normal growth he e
has achieved. The I.Q. assumes that 9
all persons grow steadily," the speaker t,
said. b
Professor Greene showed a slide r
demonstrating that persons do not l
grow physically in a steady manner,
and said that our mental functions
probably grew in the same way.
"Courtis, working, on many kinds
of data, has found a common growth
curve which he has described very
accurately," the speaker said. "He
proposed to measure growth in terms
of the proportion of the total growth 7
period, because he felt that then units 1 r
are more comparable than scores of I
amounts or percents. f
"Any indivdiual growth curve is
probably a series or combination of s
many smaller curves," he said. i
Among the recent applications of N
test results, Professor Greene named
the following:
"1. The planning of educational I
progress and the evaluation of such
administrative arrangements as sec-
tioning of students according to abil-
ity, articulated programs, and cur-
ricula of various types of skills. Here
the child's profile of interests,
achievements, and past training will
give a much more accurate picture
of the effects of schooling than the
customary examinations.
"2. The analysis and correlation
of information, skills and interests
with physical types, glandular dys-
functions, insanities, and feeble-
mindedness. The application of care-
ful measurement in these fields is be- j
ing actively pushed by clinical psy-
"3. In the field of social adjust- '
ments, such problems as the compari-
son of happily married and divorced
persons have been studied by Terman
and his students. Thurstone and his
students have developed an interest-
ing and fairly reliable series of mea-
sures of beliefs or prejudices about
political, social moral, and religious
questions. A large and fruitful ap-
plication of measurement is also
found in distinguishing delinquency
and those with delinquent tendencies
so that theymay be given adequate
treatment before they have become
serious offenders.
"4. -Measurement is an important
link in industrial selection and
training. The best example of this is
probably the Federal and state civil
service examinations. Literally mil-
lions of dollars have been expended

these tests, and a very effective and

available. Private industry and vo- t
cational guidance are also turning s
toward mental measurement for the t
solution of many of their problems." it
After predicting rapid advance- c
ment in mental measurement in the r
next ten years, Professor Greene said
that "with prediction comes respon- r
sibility. If we know that an ideal r
type of behavior will probably de-
velop under a particular environ- c
ment and course of training, then we r
have Phe possibility of controlling the c
environment and the training to pro-
duce that particular ideal. Undoubt-
edly there will always be a large mar- A
gin of unpredicted and unknown fac-
tors in most of our social situationsi
but with more precision of measure-
ment, this margin will be considerab-
ly reduced.
