Sculptor Commemorates Will Rogers

Union, Company Leaders
Plan Conference; Food
Jobbers Fill Orders
BUFFALO N. Y., July 29.-(P)-
Committee for Industrial Organiza-
tion pickets patrolled three strike-
closed packing plants today as union
and company leaders planned a peace
conference tomorrow..
At the same time, the territory's
wholesale food jobbers, a paralyzing,
eight-day truck drivers' strike ended,
worked feverishly to fill a rush of
retail orders.
One house reported it delivered
more sacked sugar today than in any
time in its history. All 44 houses
affected said their delivery facilities
were taxed to the limit.
The truckers, American Federation
of Labor affiliated, went back to work
with a contract which their presi-
dent, Howard F. Toy, labelled "a just
and equable settlement-one of the
bestrever written in this city."
Drawn up through the voluntary
mediation efforts of Dr. John P.
Boland, first head of New York
State's Labor Board, it established
a minimum scale of wages, maxi-
mum working hours, overtime pay,
preferential hiring and vacations.
During their eight-day walkout, the
truckers clamped an embargo on re-
tail deliveries that badly depleted
storekeepers' stocks of butter, eggs,
canned goods, flour and other staples.
Hugh Thompson, CIO regional di-
rector, called concurrently a strike
among union meat packing members,
but illness forced him out of tomor-
row's conference.
The meat packers yesterday sub-
mitted a. contract calling for exclu-
sive collective bargaining rights, a
modified closed shop and wage and
hour adjustments.
Michael Cohn, counsel for one of
the three affected plants, said em-
ployers' representatives had drafted
counter proposals to be presented at
tomorrow's meeting.

County To Get
More License
Fees In 1937
Total Received Will Be
$83,341.07 To Almost
Double That Of 1936
Washtenaw County will receive a
sum nearly double the total last year
as its share of automobile license
fees for the second quarter, according
to the sums vouchered yesterday by
Murray D. Van Wagoner, state high-
way commissioner.
The total the county will receive is
$83,341.07, as compared with about
$44,000 received from the state last
year. Ann Arbor's share is up from
$9,168.82 to $17,131.26. The weight
tax returns for the entire state in the
three-month period were nearly $5,-
It was pointed out that no settle-
ment has been made yet for gasoline
taxes in either the first or the second
quarer. Payment of the first install-
ment is due soon, and because of the
size of the check the county received
it was at first thought that the gas
voucher had been combined withthe
weight tax payment.

stated, must consider the history of
the word as it came into the lan-
guage, somtimes with different senses
at different periods of borrowing, but
must consider as more important the
actual usage. An example cited was
"lark," which before 1700 was often
applied to birds vaguely resembling
the true lark, just as a child calls a
cow a dog. The historical dictionary
must recognize this meaning.
"Church," "puritan," and "beauty"
were also named by Dr. Price as words
with interesting histories before 1700.
"The historical dictionary must give
in a definition not only the core of
meaning these words have, such as
you generally recognize now, but also
the peculiar aura or emotional as-
sociation, for it is this latter that
really is important to the dictionary
user. Even the precise meanings of a

color like blue or gray was probably
different three hundred years ago
from what it is now, to say nothing
of the symbolic meaning so frequently
significant in Elizabethan literature.
Although the meaning of a made3
object is easy to define, stated Dr.
Price, for its meaning is its function,
plus occasionally its appearance and
the manner of its use, the meaning
of an idea is harder to determine. It
was here that he got in a dig at the
philosophers. In the recent book,
"The Meaning of Meaning," Richards
and Ogden, according to Professor
Price, stated that "goods," for in-
stance, really has only one meaning.
Numerous illustrations to show the
unsoundness of such an idea were ad-
vanced by Dr. Price, who asked
whether "good" has really the same
meaning when applied to "bed,"
"baby," "kick," and "God." "Ogden
and Richards," he remarked, "may
say these are only arbitrary nuclei
of meaning, but people who use a
dictionary want to know precisely
what these nuclei are, for they are
really distinct meanings."
