tongue. Some borrowed words, fur-
thermore, retained foreign accentua-
tion instead of adopting the Hebraic
stress pattern. In general, however,
both the intimate and general cul-
tural borrowings from foreign lan-
guages are decreasing in number.
At the same time as the foreign in-
fluence is weakening, the variety of
change within the language itself is
increasing; said Dr. Harris. A num-
ber of such indigenous effects were
explained, as for example, the slight
trend toward spelling pronunciation
because it is not known how vowels
were pronounced in the ancient lan-
Will Not Last Long
The lack of Hebrew vocabulary on
the part of the immigrants has led
also to an interesting development of
a variety of circumlocutory expres-
sion, but Dr. Harris believes that most
of these, like American slang locu-
tions, will not last long.
Another change of great import-
ance has been the extension of word
meanings and the development of
new ones, because the Hebrew vo-
cabulary is inadequate to name mod-
ern objects and contemporary ideas.
At first many foreign words were bor-
rowed and given Hebraic forms, but
these are rapidly being displaced by
Hebraic loan-translations. S o m e-
times the native word is simply used
in a new sense. "Nituah," to cut meat,
is now used also to mean a surgical
operation, by what Dr. Harris sug-
gested is a quite natural transition.
"Gamar," to end or finish, has come
to mean to graduate, an dis used of
a student graduating from high
"Dag maluah" literally means salt
fish, hence herring, but in the ver-
nacular, by some strange jump which
Dr. Harris could not explain, it now
means necktie.
Word Coinage Phenomenon
Besides this phenomenon of se-
mantic change there exists that of
word coinage. Any word formed on
the general pattern "qattal" has come
to mean some kind of tradesman, for
example. The pattern "qattelet" is
used as a base for the names of about
20 diseases. But the acceptance of
coinages, according to Dr. Harris, is
conditioned 'by their congruity with
the sounds and structure of Hebrew.
In the field of morphology, or
grammar, said Dr. Harris in conclu-
sion, the amount of change is not so
much, being found chiefly in the an-
alogical levelling of inflections and
in the analytical tendency to break
down some of the inflectional pat-


The bodies of Bill Lee, 8, James Theodore, 5, Inez, 3, and Margaret Elizabeth, 1, rested in the cemetery at
Columbus, Ky., while their father W. J. Morse, 45, was in jail at Mayfield, Ky. for killing them with a
butcher knife. Their mother, Mrs. Jane Morse, 42, was also stabbed, but survived. The graves are
shown here.

Fighting which broke out between rival unions left nine injured
and closed the Plymouth plant of the Chrysler Corp. at Detroit. One
of the injured, Frank Dillon, head of the Independent Association of
Chrysler Employes, is shown in Receiving Hospital. He said his assail-
ants were members of the United Automobile Workers of America union.

Resolutions Ask Murphy
To Expand Powers Of
Port Commission
ST. JOSEPH, Aug. 6.-AP)-Mem-
bers of Port Commissions in 42 Mich-
igan lake cities adopted articles of
organization today at a first Michi-
gan Port Conference here.
W. P. Bradley, of Detroit, chairman
of the Michigan Tidewater Associa-
tion, was named chairman of the new
organization, with other directors of
the body as nucleus of the governing
Resolutions were endorsed asking
Governor Murphy to expand the
powers of the Michigan Port Com-
mission in official representation of
all the port cities. An advisory board
later would be designated by the
present state port authority with the
consent of the Governor.
Purposes of organization were ex-
pressed in clauses urging "Better de-
velopment of Michigan's 42 harbors
to crystallize efforts in securing ade-
quate funds from the government for
improvements and to assist in every
way possible the advancement of wa-
terborne commerce."
The day-long session, attended by
some 100 delegates, concluded tonight
with a banquet at which Richard F.
Malia of Milwaukee, Wis., secretary of
the Great Lakes Harbors Association,
and Wm. George Bruce, chairman of
the Wisconsin Tidewater Associa-
tion, were speakers.
Recognition of "recreation com-
merce" as part of the paying lake
traffic which comes into Michigan
port cities was one of the topics
threshed out in the conference.
Some cities, notably in West Mich-
igan, declared that volume of freight
tonnage in navigable months was in-
sufficient to encourage federal ex-
periditures in making harbor im-
provements, but that present "rec-
reation commerce" plus "industrial
commerce" readily established neces-
sity for miprovements on an econom-
ic basis.

teers and nearly the entire group
Reuther also urged the workers to
forget the struggle with the manage-
ment and give their full cooperation
when they return to work Monday.
Non-strikers who have kept produc-
tion going on a limited scale for the
past two days will be at work again
today putting the plant in readiness
for re-opening Monday.
In a formal statement released lastj
night Reuther said, "The letter from
the company as per the suggestion of
Governor Murphy this morning has
been unanimously accepted by the
"It is a complete and overwhelming
victory in Ann Arbor for the UAW.
We have all the assurance with which
we started, for we got an agreement
in writing above the signature of E.
K. Morgan.
"This marks the beginning of a
union drive in Ann Arbor which will
never cease until the city is 100 per
cent union and working conditions
and wages are immensely improved."
Parade Is Held
A victory parade was held by the
strikers and affiliated UAW members
from Ann Arbor and nearby cities,
followed by a rally at the Unitarian
Church annex.
Early yesterday morning the two
sides had seemed in a mood which
made speedy settlement appear im-

possible. A heavy picket line had been
thrown around all entrances to the
factory, reinforced by cars parked
bumper to bumper, to prevent non-
strikers from repeating the entrance
they effected Thursday.
Shortly before 7 a.m., however, a
police scout car ordered the pickets
to move cars which were blocking
driveways, and almost immediately a
line of workers' cars made for the
west entrance to the company
Reuther and his wife refused to
give ground, however, and as the
line of cars crossed the sidewalk,
Mrs. Reuther was forced to jump on
the radiator of the first car to avoid
being run down, and was carried
about 60 feet onto company premises
before she could get off. Reuther
grabbed a worker riding on the run-
ning board and pulled him off, but
was not carried into the grounds by
the car.
Pickets Stop Workers
Estimates of the workers employed
in the plant yesterday ranged from
15 to 30. Throughout the morning
pickets stopped isolated workers and
trucks seeking to make deliveries or
pick up shipments, and heckled of-
fice workers and men engaged in
putting up a 6-foot fence around the
company property at the rear of the
Another brief flurry occurred at
noon when a worker ran the picket
line at the front entrance carrying a

bundle of sandwiches for the men
inside. He was seized by pickets
and dropped the food, but another
worker inside the plant opened the
door and scooped them in, after
which the first worker broke loose
and followed him inside. Office work-
ers went out for lunch and were al-
lowed to return.
During the morning Sheriff Jacob
B. Andres andtProsecutor Albert J.
Rapp came to the plant andf warned
against using rocks several of the
younger strikers had gathered at the
picket posts, also cautioning them
to remove tacks they had strewn in
the driveways. Except for the two
brief flurries, however, the picket
line was orderly throughout the day.
While the officers were in front of
the plant they were summoned in-
side by a long-distance call from
Lansing, and came out to inform the
strikers that a settlement appeared
near, with the discussion to be re-
sumed here during the afternoon.
Mrs. Reuther, however, acting for
her husband during his presence in
Lansing, said that the picket line'
would not be withdrawn until the
settlement was delnite.

the yard without being driven frantic by mosquitoes, you
will find the Electracide a boon. Electracide is a light trap
that attracts and destroys mosquitoes, moths, gnats, beetles,
fish flies and other insect pests. You simply plug it into any
convenience outlet, like a portable lamp. It costs only 1 c
an hour for electricity. Electracide also destroys many
insects which are damaging to shrubs, flowers and fruit
trees . . . the codling moth, bud moth and fruit tree leaf

this protection, trees produce greater yields of clean fruit
each year. See the Electracide on display at department
