Tocharian Tongue
Of European Origin
How Tocharian, an obscure and an-
cient language discovered in the
1890's in Chinese Turkestan, is likely
to reveal important relationships be-
tween Indo-European culture and
that of Central Asia and Tibet, was
indicated last night by Professor Ed-
ward A. Sapir, professor of anthro-
pology at Yale University and visiting
faculty member in the Linguistic In-
stitute.
Speaking at the second general
open program of the Institute, Dr.
Sapir first explained in detail the
evidence discovered by scholars who
have determined the significance of
Tocharian to the general Indo-Euro-
pean family of languages, and then
went on to suggest what future re-
search may be able to do.
Made Serious Errors
The most important effect so far,
he said, has been the discovery that
for many years linguists have been
making serious errors in the creating
of the hypothetical parent language
of the European family. Such recon-
struction, he pointed out, can now be
made much more accurately.
Tocharian, according to Professor
Sapir, is, despite the place where the
documents were found, the language
of a European people and belongs to
the so-called Indo-European family
of languages. The hypothesis is that
this people lived in central Europe,
probably on the eastern side of the
Adriatic, perhaps 3,000 or 4,000 years
ago, and after considerable wander-
ing eventually found residence in
central Asia, north of Tibet.
Related To Illyrian Group
The language itself appears most
closely related to the early languages
belonging to the Illyrian group but
it has a small Germanic element in
its vocabulary, and displays many
other linguistic features that make
it of peculiar interest to language
scholars.
The evidence for his general state-
ments Professor Sapir presented in
detail under two headings, phonology,
or the sounds of the language, and
morphology, or its grammatical
structure. Of this evidence the most
valuable material, he declared, is
that which supports the recent laryn-
geal theory of Indo-European gram-
marians with respect to the palatiza-
tion of consonants, a theory of con-
siderable importance in effecting the
hypothetical reconstruction of the
language which is the ancestor of
the modern European tongues, in-
cluding English.

Allergic's Enjoy Better
Health And Intelligence
Surveys Indicate
By ROBERT FITZHENRY
The miseries of hay fever as well
as other allergic disturbances such
as asthma, eczema and hives are not
without their material compensa-
tions, according to Dr. Buenaventura
Jimenez, director of the health serv-
ice sensitization clinic.
Recent surveys indicate that those
whose body cells are sensitive to any
one of the many allergic stimuli, us-
ually enjoy a higher average intelli-
gence and better physical health than
the non-allergics.
Michigan in the summer is one of
the worst states in the Union for hay-
fever addicts, Dr. Jimenez explained,
because of the abundant quantities
of pollen, ragweed and timothy which
it contains. While ragweed is con-
sidered to be by far the most preval-
ent cause of hay fever symptoms an
allergic person can well be sensitive
to anything from the fur on his pet
white mouse to the powder which his
fiancee uses on her face, he added.
Addicts of hay fever fall into two
classes, those who have a seasonal
affliction and those who are peren-
nially troubled with itching nostrils,
dripping noses and watery eyes. The
perennial type, Dr. Jimenez pointed
out, is really not a hay fever at all as
it is caused by stimuli other than
pollen such as food, wools, bacteria
or silk.
The seasonal type, the true hay-
fever, is divided according to the
No Relief Near
In Heat Wave
As Deaths Riset
92 Die In Extended Warm
Spell; New York City
Records 95 Degrees
(By Associated Press)1
The most protracted heat wave of
1937 spread rapidly yesterday to en-
velop most of the states east of the
Rockies.
Paced by rising temperatures, the
total of deaths attributed to the
sweltering spell rose to 92.
Scattered showers and cloud for-
mations in many parts of the nation1
failed to break the siege. No general
relief was sighted.
The season's heat record was shat-
tered for the third successive day in
New York City. The official ther-s
mometer there registered 95.1 at 3
p.m. The humidity was 38.'
Nearby Newark recorded 99.3,'
while a pilot at the airport there re-
ported a reading of 95 at 1,500 feet.t
Residents of Philadelphia and Wil-
mington, Del., watched the mercury
advance to 97 degrees-high mark for
the year.
The torrid pall over the prairie
states of the West, the East and New
England extended into the South
during the day.

Rouse, director, announced today.
Professor F. M. Bullard of the Uni
versity of Texas, will accompany th
group as lecturer.
It will go by bus to Detroit, leaving
Ann Arbor at 3:15 p.m. Friday, July
16. From there the party will proceed
to Buffalo on a Detroit and Cleve-

land Navigation Company boat, ar-
riving about 8 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday morning will

fests itself, into three parts-the very
early, occuring in April and the first
week of May and caused by trees, of
which the most common' are elm,

the late, occuring in August and
September and caused bysweeds and
shrubs of which the most common
are short and giant ragweed.
At least five years of treatment
is necessary to insure an allergic per-
son of absolute immunity for the re-f
mainder of his life, Dr. Jimenez said.
The treatment for hay fever is sim-
ilar in method and theory to vaccin-
ation. An extract concocted from the
pollen to which the patient is sensi-
tive is administered in gradually in-
creasing strength in attempt to build
up body immunity.
The injections increase in strength

A restrike call by the Steel Workers
Organizing Committee for employes
of Republic steel plants here ap-
parently failed today.
Republic steel officials said "not at

president of the SWOC lodge at Re-
public plants here, contended that,
"some men had left the plant," but
said he did not have a report on the
number.

Carl Olson at 2,000 gathered at the,
gates at 11:30 a.m. The dead line
for the strike. Police and National
Guardsmen kept all moving and by
noon only a few remained.
Plans went forward meanwhile for
reopening of Youngstown Sheet & I
Tube Company's plants in northwes-
tern Indiana. Efforts of Governor
M. Clifford Townsend, of Indiana, to
effect an agreement for reopening, as1
he did in the case.of Inland Steel Co.,
were stalemated.
D. L. Ellinwood, secretary of the1
association of steel employes, an in-E
dependent union, said Frank Pur-
nell, sheet & tube president, hadT
authorized him to say the mills would1
reopen 'within a very few days."
Nicholas Fontechio, SWOC direc-X
tor in the Calumet region, said thel
union would oppose the move. Thet
two plants employ normally about
7,000 men.

Two Die As Direct
Result Of Heat Here
Two men were believed to have suf-
fered death in Washtenaw County
last night as direct results from the
heat wave sweeping the nation.
Andrew Rivers, 53 years old, was
found dead by his employer, Frank
Zepowdski, in a hayfield on the Can-
ton Center Road, south of Ypsilanti.
Zepowski said that he had left him
about 6 p.m., and when he returned
about two hours later, Rivers was
dead.
The other casualty was Ralph W.
Tom, age unknown, of New Concord,
0. He was swimming near the paper
mill on the Huron River, just east of
Ypsilanti with his cousin, whose name
was not given. The cousin left Tom
swimming in the river, and when he
came back a short time later, Tom
could not be seen.
State Police dragged the river for
more than three hours last night for
his body, and planned to start again
it daylight today.

WASHINGTON, July 9.- (A) -
President Roosevelt made clear today
that strikes by Federal workers are
barred, although he declared such
employes are free to join unions.
Unionization of these workers is
now being undertaken by the John L.
Lewis Committee for Industrial Or-
ganization. The President after ex-
pressing the opinion they should not
have the right to strike, added that
civil service rules withhold this priv-
ilege.
He also asserted that since Govern-
ment wages are fixed by Congress
and the Government enters into no
contracts with its employes, there can
be no bargaining about pay.
Mr. Roosevelt's assertions were
made at a press conference which
dealt briefly with several other sub-
jects.
The President declined to comment
on reports that he and Lewis are
near a break. Telling reporters he
would not affirm, or deny, various
stories being circulated, he laughing-
ly said that rule applied also to Vice-
President Garner's departure from
Washington. Mr. Garner has gone
home to Texas, arousing much spec-
ulation.
ThenPresident reiterated a hope
that a wage and hour bill would be
enacted this session. Asked if he had
discussed the steel strike recently
with Labor Department officials, he,
said he had conferred with officials
there nearly every day for months.
$100 Is Collected

Prof. Jose Albaladejo spoke to, the
group telling of the background of
the Spanish conflict, and Dr. Harry

Queen And Her
Brood Put The
Bee On Traffic
By CLAYTON HEPLER
"Putting the bee on Ann Arbor"
became more than a figure of speech
yesterday when a queen and her
brood picked the streetlight at the
busiest corner in town, at Main and
Huron streets, as a base for their
operations,
Traffic was tied up for more than
two hours as the swarm clung tena-
ciously, and completely covered the
red light facing the East Huron St.
raffic. A special detail of patrolmen
was immediately commandeered to
reroute the parade of cars.
Consternation and c o n f u s i o n
reigned. The policemen, who have
faced bandits, run down speedsters
and even disposed of dead skunks in
the interests of the citizens of Ann
Arbor, were stumped this time.
It takes courage to fight it out with
an armed thug, but it's plain foolish-
ness to walk into a swarm of bees
and start shooing. If you don't be-
lieve it, try it.
The situation was finally solved
when police called on old Bill Wein-
mann, 80-year-old bee fancier and
apiarist extraordinary, who lives at
140 Hill St. Patrolman Connie Mil-
ler brought Bill downtown in the
scout car, along with a ladder and a
gunny sack.
Said Billon his way to the busy
corner, "There ought to be a lot of
people down there to watch me." And
true to his prediction there were just
about as many observers as there
were bees, which sort of disproved
Sgt. Norman Cook's observation that
"everyone made a B-line past the
corner."
With the onlookers lending their.
utmost in moral support, Bill climbed
the ladder, captured the queen bee
and soon had the majority of the'
buzzing stingers in the gunny sack.

Embezzler Is
Object Of Hunt
By U.S._G mMen1
Frank Scholl Is Charged
With Breaking Parole,
SwindlingFarmer
Frank B. Scholl, twice-convicted
embezzler, is today the object of a
nation-wide search, charged with
swindling a Dexter farmer and his
late sister and with violation of his
parole.
Warrant for his arrest was made
out by Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp on
the complaint of Alfred S. Haab that
Scholl had swindled him and his sis-
ter, Mary, out of $2,699.55 in secur-
ities. He identified a picture of Scholl.
Parole Commissioner Hilmer Gel-
lein ordered the search because Scholl
had not paid $650 in fines, costs and
fees, which were probationary con-
ditions of a commuted sentence
granted by former Governor Frank
D. Fitzgerald which permitted his re-
lease from the Southern State Prison
at Jackson.
This commuted sentence, on
charges of swindling Miss Elizabeth
Kirchhofer, 313%/2 S. Fifth Ave., out
of stock in April, 1933, caused wide-
spread controversy along with a par-
don for School from a conviction and
sentence of 7% to 10 years when he
swindled Mrs. Olive Ellis, 92-year-old
Marshall woman, out of $10,000 worth
of Consumers Power Co. stock, in
May, 1936.

In June, 1935, he was convicted
of swindling $3,000 worth of Consum-
ers Power Co. stock from Cornelius
Murphy, of Big Rapids.
Haab told Prosecutor Rapp that
Scholl had talked him and his sister
into turning over to him 1,260 shares
of Corporate Trust stock Nov. 30,
1931, on his promise to exchange it
for another stock. Scholl had posed
as H. G. Miller, of the National Dis-
tributers Corp., of Detroit.
He then said that their stock issue
had been defaulted, Haab stated, but
had already sold the stock for $2,-
699.55 in Chicago. An alleged accom-
plice, John Armstrong, who is on pro-
bation in Washtenaw county on sim-
ilar charges, and Scholl are believed
to be in California.

Adherents Of
Court Bill Are
Castigated By
Sen. Wheeler
Accuses Backers Of Court
Proposal Of Playing On
'Mass Prejudices'
Calls Compromise
As Bad AsOriginal
WASHINGTON. July 9.-(P)-Sen-
ator Wheeler (Dem., Mont.) indig-
nantly told the Senate today that the
Administration has been guilty of
"cheap tactics," of "intolerance," and
of playing on "mass prejudices" in its
campaign for enactment of the Su-
preme Court reorganization bill.
The bill itself he called "morally
wrong," an effort to do "by subter-
fuge" what the Administration dared
not do openly, and a "violation of the
spirit of the Constitution" which he
compared with the treatment of the
courts in Germany and Italy.
Slow Motion "Packing"
* The compromise bill now before the
Senate, which calls for the appoint-
ment of new judges at the rate of
one a year instead of all at once, is as
bad as the original, Wheeler contend-
ed. He called it "slow motion" pack-
ing of the Court.
The hard-hitting speech of the
Montana liberal was the first to be
made by the opposition in the tumul-
tuous Senate debate on that measure.
Although the angry exchanges of
previous days were notably few, the
terms and tone of the address served
to keep feeling running high.
Previously, Administration speakers
were kept under a constant fire of
questions and interruptions by the
opposition, leading many times to
angry shouted assertions. Today the
Administration let Wheeler proceed
almost without interrupation. Vir-
tually his only interrogators were
those who agreed with him.
Recalls Rule Technicalities
Sarcastically, however, he recalled
the technicalities of Senate rules,
which in advance of a Senate fili-
buster have been invoked against the
opposition by Senator Robinson, the
majority leader. Once when Robin-
son sought to make a statement,
Wheeler invoked the same rules
against him.
From the outset of the controversy
more than five months ago, Wheele'j
said, the Administration tried to "stir
up mass prejudices" in favor of the
bill, by implying that flood sufferers,
drought sufferers, farmers and others
would receive no Federal assistance
unless the bill was passed.

The dead-line for entering the all-
City Tennis Tournament has been set
for late Monday afternoon accord-
ing to George Moe. It was original-
ly set for this afternoon, but because
there were so many people out of
town for the week-end the date was
moved up.
For the past 17 years, Mr. Moe has
been sponsoring these tournaments,
and it is expected that this year's will
surpass all others. Such players as
LeRoy Weir, 'titleholder in 1935, and
Hap Sorenson, champion last year
have already filed their entry blanks
and are entered in the men's singles.
Other prominent players who have
already signed up are Prof. Robert
Angell, Doug Gregory, Henry Lewis,
Reardon Peirsol, and Dr. John Dor-
sey. All of these men have competed
in these tournaments in the past, and
have given every indication of pro-
viding plenty of competition.
A few of the doubles teams that
have been organized include such
players as Dr. Dorsey paired with
Professor Angell, Doug Gregory and
Hap Sorenson, and Jack Anderson
with Bob Newton.
Among the entries for the wom-
en's title are Helen Alexander, Sarah
