Director Commends Clinic
.Band; Capacity Crowd
Is Expected For Concert
Although a band of the size that
which will play the open-air concert'
Friday night on Ferry Field is usually
disorganized and unbalanced, Prof.
Gerald Prescott Director of Bands
at the University of Minnesotaaand
guest conductor of Friday's concert,
said, the selections picked for the
approaching concert will be admir-
ably suited to massed playing and
should produce a fine effect.
Professor Prescott arrived on cam-
pus fresh from finishing the concert
season at Minnesota, he said, and
at the concluding open air concert
held there similar to. that being plan-
ned for Ann Arbor, a crowd of over
5,000 people attended. The bleachers
in Ferry Field will hold upwards of
10,000 and a capacity crowd is ex-
pected to attend.
"It has never been my privilege,"
asserted Professor Prescott, "to work

with a more talented Summer Session
Directors Band than the present one.
There is good balance and artistry
in every department and the work
in rehearsals has been very gratify-
The High School Clinic Band was
praised by Professor Prescott as being

group and a fine group of student
Both bands will play individually
Friday and then will conclude the
program with a series of selections

Oflical notification that the part-
time employment of college students
under the National Youth Adminis-
tration will be continued during the
1938-1939 school year was received
yesterday afternoon by the Univer-
sity, Prof. Lewis M. Gram, chairman
of the N.Y.A. administration com-
mittee, announced yesterday. Final
specifications have not been received
yet but the basis of the program has
been announced.
A committee consisting of Dean
Joseph A. Burley and John C. Chris-
tensen in addition to Professor Gram,
will have charge of the administra-
tion under the general direction of
President Ruthven Projects for
which student aid is desired must be
presented to Professor Gram and they
will be judged by the committee as
soon as possible.
. Student applications for employ-
ment will " be received at the Dean
of Student's office in University Hall
and the eligilibity of students will
be passed on by the Committee. The
task of fittingi students to projects
will be under the supervision of Dean
Bursley with Miss Elizabeth A. Smith

Sugar said the first witness at

an administrator for the union.

May Adopt New
Graduate Study
Plan For State
University To Administer
Instruction Through The
State Teachers' Colleges
LANSING, July 27.-(I)-The State
Board of Education will meet Friday
at Marquette and the Regents of the
University of Michigan at Frankfort
to consider adoption of a plan to pro-
vide graduate study in state teachers
colleges under the sponsorship of the
University of Michigan.
Dr. Eugene B. Elliott, State Super-
intendent of Public Instruction, said
the plan is the first of its kind in the
nation and is designed t , avoid dupli-
cation of instruction in various in-
stitutions and to maintain economies.
He6 pointedout that in many states,
teachers colleges have extended into
the graduate study field until they
have become universities, each com-
peting with another and resulting in
a heavy financial burden on the state-
supported educational system.
The proposed plan would' allow
teachers colleges to establish gradu-
ate divisions to be organized and ad-
ministered in cooperation with the
University of Michigan. The Univer-
sity would appoint an official of its
graduate school to supervise the pro-
gram, while each teacher college
would appoint a graduate council to
administer their branch according to
University standards.
Staff members of the University or
staff members of the teacher col-
leges who have been given the status
of a graduate lecturer by the Univer-
sity would teach the, courses, Elliott
said. ;

Successful Group Starting
All Ann Arbor citizens and students

terested in hearing an exposition of
co-operative principles and watching
an exceedingly successful cooperative
society conduct its business are in-

According to A. K. Stevens of the
English department the local group
has just concluded the most success-

is beginning to foster subsidiary pro-
jects. Connected with the society is
a Group-Help arrangement whereby
200 local families have contracted to
hire a family physician for their own
use., The Ann Arbor Housing Asso-
ciation, also an outgrowth of the par-
ent co-operative, will undertake the
task of building homes for the in-

Of FSA In S. Dakota
WASHINGTON, July 27.-(A')-The
Senate Campaign Expenditures Com-
mittee cracked down on the Demo-
cratic senatorial fight in Tennessee
today with a warning that the suc-
cessful candidate was likely to face an
election contest in the Senate.
"Apparently every scheme and
questionable device that can be used
in a political contest to raise funds
to influence votes and control the
election result is in full swing," the
committee said in a statement after
hearing a report from its Tennessee
Tennessee primary candidates are
Sen. George L. Berry, Tom Stewart,
J. Ridley Mitchell, Dr. John R. Neal
and Edward W. Carmack. Committee-
men said Neal was one of those who
filed complaints with the committee
about Tennessee conditions.
Ask Investigation
/Besides its pronouncement on Ten-
nessee, the committee asked Postmas-
ter General Farley to investigate the
distribution of a "political circular"
by the Farm Security Administration
in South Dakota. The circular, it
was said, was sent out under govern-
or. Frank.
The committee said the FSA at
Yankton, S.D., had distributed a press
release which, "while pretending to
be information with respect to the
Farm Security Administration" was
in reality designed to aid the sena-
torial candidacy of former Gov. Tom
Berry of South Dakota.
During the day the committee also
decided to dispatch investigators to
Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, North Da-
kota and California. It heard repots
from its investigators already at work
in Pennsylvania and Kentucky and
sent them back for additional infor-

would not send an investigator to
Missouri at this time.

of the committee said he hoped that

"I am not liberal about language.
You often hear students of language
called 'liberal' when they express
their views about ideas of correctness.
But that is not being liberal any more
than it would have been for a person
to go into a community where witch-
hunting was practiced and say to the
people that there were no such things
as witches. I mean that it isn't being
liberal to be against superstitions."
With this preface, Dr. Leonard
Bloomfield, chairman of the depart-
ment of linguistics at the University
of Chicago, began his University lec-
ture yesterday afternoon on the topic,
"Linguistic Science and the Problem
of 'Correct' Language." -The lecture
was the third of a series of four pre-
sented this week under the auspices
of the Linguistic Institute. The
fourth occurs at 4:30 p.m. today in
the Rackham building, when Prof.
Charles C. Fries speaks on "The
Changing Grammar'of Modern Eng-
"Of course there are such things as
mistakes in English," admitted Dr.
Bloomfield. "The foreigner learning
English makes mistakes. The little
child, saying such things as 'those
mans,' makes mistakes. We all make
mistakes when we utter lapses and
get our words twisted up. Besides,
there are differences in style, because
there are less able and more able

"It might help us if we recognize'
that for us all there are two dialects
of English-the standard dialect
spoken in the courtroom, in the pul-
pit, on the stage, in the informal
conversation of educated people; and
the regional dialect, in which one
hears 'I seen it,' 'I done it,' and 'He
ain't got none.' There are really only
a few such differences between the
two dialects and it is these that the
schools should teach so that speakers
of the regional dialect could attain
a command of the other one also. But
the schools don't do this. They waste
a lot of time doing unnecessary
things, largely because of the influ-
ence of the speech corrector.
"But unhappily for children in the
schools, the speech corrector is not
interested in observing the speech of
the standard dialect. He is interest-
ed in some kind of fanciful speech
used in a nightmare world where, ac-
cording to one of the correctors, 95
per cent of us would be constantly
making mistakes in our native lan-
"You see," Dr. Bloomfield conclud-
ed, "these speech correctors write
without having made any real obser-
vation of the language spoken around
them. They don't know very much
about it. My advice to all of you is
this. If some.speech corrector comes
