Episcopal Student Group, Picnic

Hanley of the University of Wisconsin
discussed the sound represented by
the letters "ng" on the basis of ma-
terials dealing with English rimes
collected by a staff of WPA wo:kers
-ider his direction at Madiso. This
sound developed in English, he said,
from "n" plus a velar stop and hence
never was initial. With the change of
stress and loss of final vowels "ng"
occurred at the end of unstressed syl-
lables, as in "singing." In the 18th
entury, however, the sound became
a new phoneme, a syllabic "n", as is
represented by the spelling "singin' ".
This sound, often condemned by
teacpers, was so common by 1785 that
John Walker, a writer on pronuncia-
tion, then found it general in England.
Prof. A. H. Marckwardt of the
University next explained the pro-
posed wide-meshed survey of the
regional speech characteristics of
Michigan and Indiana and some ad-
jacent territory. This preliminary sur-
vey, which will begin this summer, is
an independent research project of
the University, he declared, but its
results should prove important in
carrying through to completion the
present Linguistic Atlas of the United
States and Canada, the first part of,
which will be published this fall, ac-
cording to an accompanying an-
nouncement by Dr. Bernard Bloch, its
assistant editor.
Another speaker was Prof. E. Ade-
laide Hahn of Hunter College, who1
offered detailed and classified evi-
dence to show that in ancient Hittite
the subordinate clause almost always
precedes the main clause.
"Initial k' in German" served Prof.
Leonard Bloomfield of the University
of Chicago as a title for his discus-
sion of a sound change in southern
German. Although it is known that
in southern German the pre-West
Germanic "p-" became "pf- or f-"
and "t-" became "ts-", yet trained
observers have disagreed about the
existence of the corresponding change
from "k-" to "kx-", that is, from
initial "k" to "k" plus an aspirate.
Dr. Bloomfield contended that a
study of the southern German pro-
nunciation of such words as "gehal-
ten" in comparison with such as
"kalt" shows that the initial sounds
are identical and thus that this dia-
lect has developed an aspirate after
initial "k." These "ge-" words, with
loss of the vowel, are, furthermore,
actually written with "k" in dialect
materials, he declared as further evi-
dence for the identity.

U.S. Ready To Conclude Trade
Agreement With.Soviet Union

WASHINGTON, July 30.-(A)-The
United States is about to conclude a
commercial agreement with the So-
viet Union by which the Soviets will
promise to purchase at least $40,000,-
000 worth of American products in
one year.
The agreement will replace an ex-
isting one expiring Aug. 5. Negotia-
tions have been under way for several
weeks, being conducted at Moscow
under the direction of the American
Charge D'Affaires, Alexander Kirk.
By virtue of the agreement's state-
ment of the Soviet's intention to pur-
chase American products, the U.S.S.R.
will receive most - favored - nation
treatment from the United States,
which means it will be entitled to
the tariff and other concessions made
by this government in reciprocal trade
agreements signed with 17 nations
and soon to be signed with more.
Negotiations have been proceeding
slowly the last few days, and it may
become necessary for the two coun-
tries to exchange notes exending the
present agreement until the new one
is completed.
Under the existing agreement the
Soviets agreed to purchase from this
country, in the year convered by the
pact, American goods to the value of
at least $40,000,000. Statistics show
that by Aug. 5 their purchases will
have exceeded this 'figure consider-
ably.
Consequently, there is a chance
on the League bulletin board. Chris-
tian students are cordially invited.
Services of worship will be held in
Zion Lutheran Church at 10:30 a.m.
with sermon by the pastor, Ernest C.
Stellhorn.
Trinity Lutheran Church services
will be held Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
The Rev. IHenry O. Yoder will use as
the theme "Must I Listen?"
The Lutheran Students will meet
for the regular Sunday evening meet-
ing in Zion Lutheran Parish Hall at
5:30. Mr. Rolfe Haatvedt who was
a member of the University of Michi-
gan group who excavated intensely in
Fayum, Egypt will speak on "Recent

that the $40,000,000 figure will be
stepped up in the new agreement.
The Soviets' purchases from the
United States consist in great part of
machine tools. Raw materials they
have in plenty.
The commercial treaty with the'
Soviets represents an anomaly in
American accords. The Soviets get the
benefits of this country's trade agree-
ment tariff reductions although tar-
iffs are not mentioned on their side
of the agreement.

Just wait 'til you actually feel the air seep through
this shadow Corselette. You'll wonder how you ever
got along without it! It has a dainty net (double
thickness) front with a soft, lustrous satin panel - a
back of porous Lastex mesh that stretches up and
down - and side panels of the same material that
stretches across!
. This is one time when a Shadow is important to
you - for coolness, for a slim, trim figure, and for
complete comfort during those warm summer days!
