Little Success
Seen For Italian
ROME, July 26.-(,)-The Italian
press is conducting a tremendous
campaign to arouse enthusiasm for
the new Fascist anti-Jewish policy,
but thus far there has been no con-
spicuous success.I
The anti-semitic faction of the Fas-
cist party has been demanding that
Jews be excluded fro:n teaching,
journalism, the arts and other occu-
pations influencing national thought.
It also has demanded that positions
of command in the army and of lead-
ership in the Fascist regime be closed

The Rev. Gerald B. Winrod[
(above), Wichita Evangelist, lec-
turer and pamphleteer, who has
been accused of Nazi sympathies,
is campaigning for the Republi-
can senatorial nomination in
Ka'nsas. National Chairman John
Hamilton has called for his de-
to Italy's 47,000 Jews, and that Italo-
Jewish marriages be forbidden.
Whether such regulations, strong-'
ly suggestive of Nazi Jewish policy,
are adopted may depend on two fac-'
1. The reaction to the doctrine of
race among the mass of Italians who.
are cool to anti-semitism.
2. The future status of relations be-
tween Italy and what Premier Mus-
solini likes to term the "demo-pluto-
cracies"-the world's democracies.
Newspapers took up yesterday's
declaration by Party Secretary Achille
Starace that the formula considering
Italians as of Aryan origin must be
followed by 'ulterior political action."
A group of scholars, which had
published a report on Italian racial-
ism, under the auspices of the popular
culture ministry, heard Starace's an-
nouncement that "elaboration and
discussion of Fascist race principles"
would be the popular culture minis-
try's main task next year.
The report, released July 14, as-
serted Italians were of Aryan origin
and Jews did "not belong to the
Italian race."

There were thrills and laughs
aplenty yesterday afternoon at Ferry
Field in the I-M softball league.
Probably the funniest incident
of the year occurred when Sun-
ny Bauer, a funmaker of the Nick
Altrock school, marched his
P.K.S. squad into Ferry Field to +
the accompaniment of a four-
piece band.
Led by a baton-wielder who con-
fined his activities to very rudimen-
tary stick waving, Bauers had his
clarinet, trumpet, French horn and
brass horn parade around the bases
to the tune of "Ach Du Lieber Augus-
tine" and some other piece which was
undistinguishable although it sound-
ed faintly familiar at spots.
After the cruise of the bases
(on each of which the unsup-
pressable Sunny pivoted) the
team and the band marched
solemnly to its dugout which, for
economical purposes, was beneath
a tree.
The pieces which the band 'played
sounded like a distortion of Stra-
Yinsky's Rite of Spring but it must be
admitted that the flesh and spirit
were "both very willing.
In spite of being raised to such
a fever pitch by the blowing and
tooting, the P.K.S. team went
down to defeat, 4-3. Maybe a five-
piece band next time might do it,
* * *

scoring four runs and pushing
his team out in front, 11-10. With
the blow, Mason became the hero
instead of the goat.

Went down to see Franklin C. Cap-
pon yesterday. Cappy, a coach of the
football squad and head coach of the
basketball team, is now backfield
coach at Princeton and their head
basketball coach.
During the summer Cappon
teaches basketball to teachers
who come here for expert in-
struction-and get it.
He went to Princeton for six weeks
for their spring practice but because
of the paucity of men out for other
activities it was difficult to discover
much. As an example, on one Sat-
urday there were 19 different teams
competing. There are only about 2,-
200 students at Princeton so the 19
teams cut pretty much of a chunk
out of the football men available for
spring training.

On The Nose.. .

Bill Mason, shortstop for the Pat-
tocks, redeemed himself in Frank
Merriwellian fashionmafter making
several bad bobbles of ground balls
in their game against the Analysts
The Pattocks came to bat in the last
half of the sixth trailing 10-5. By
dint of some errors, walks and hits,
they pushed two runs across and had
three men on base with Mason up.
With a one and one count on
him, Mason caught one on the
nose and sent it way out to deep
right center for a home run,

Public Health
Dinner Aug. 1
Summer Students, Faculty
Members Are Invited
Invitations have been extended to
members of the faculty and their
wives as well as to all students for
the dinner which will be given at
6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1, in the gar-
den of the League under the sponsor-
ship of the Public Health Depart-
The dinner is to be an informal
affair, according to Elizabeth Vanden
Bossche, '38E, general chairman,
which is being given so that students
and the faculty of the public health
department from the various parts of
the country may become better ac-
quainted. Michigan songs wlil be
sung after the dinner.
All those planning to attend the af-
fair are asked to make reservations
in the office of Dr. John Sundwall,
director of the Division of Hygiene
and Public Health, in Room 2, Wa-
terman Gymnasium, before noon,
lAug. 1.
what similar lapse is found in the
contamination of two words as when
one says 'evoid' for either 'evade' or
'avoid.' "
In concluding, Dr. Sturtevant sug-
gested the importance of the study
of lapses to problems of infelctional
change in language. The child who1
used 'bate' as thep ast tense of 'beat'
in the same sentence with 'ate' was
producing an inflectional form by
analogy, he said. Such lapses are of
great importance in the history of
language. But all linguistic lapses,
he asserted, offer a wide field for re-
search not only to the linguist but
also to the psychologist and the psy-

before it should be, as when I heard
someone say 'as a matter of flact,
Flemish,' instead of 'fact, Flemish.'
But sometimes a sound is substituted
for another, as in 'Spring ticken for
10 cents a pound., It is not impos-
sible that we say 'four' instead of
something like 'whour' because in
early Germanic times people in count-
ing moved the f' of 'five' up to the
preceding word.
"Sometimes," Professor Sturtevant;
continued, "an omission of a word
occurs, as when a woman said, 'Put
my coat in your pocket,' when what3
she meant to say was 'Put my cup
in your coat pocket.' Again, the last
of a word or syllable occurs along;
with anticipation, as in my boy's
'posties' for 'post toasties,' or in
'naviator' for 'naval aviator.' The re-
verse process to anticipation is found

metathesis of sounds in actual con-
tact within a word are very rare, a'
fact which raises the question whether
such lapses have not already been
incorporated within the language,
having occurred long ago so often
that they were finally adopted. I
"Another general division of lapses
is composed of those due t mixed
selection of words in a sentence. A
speaker sometimes has several choices
to make. If he combines choices, he
will say something like 'That will be
less informal,' when he started out
to say either 'less formal' or 'more
informal.' Such contaminations
sometimes actually get into the liter-
ary language and persis as figures of
speech or set expressions. This is
the source of ° the Greek and Latin
figure called 'anacoluthon.' A some-
