DETROIT, Aug. 4.-(R)-The New
York Yankees landed on Vernon Ken-
nedy with a six-run blast in the fifth.
inning today and coasted in with an
8 to 4 victory over the Tigers behind
Monte Pearson's nine-hit pitching.
The victory boosted the Yanks'
American League leading margin to
2%/2 games over the idle Cleveland In-
dians, whom they meet in a three-
game series beginning tomorrow.
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 4.-(-P)-Harry
Kelley, veteran right hander, pitched
shutout ball for seven innings today
and then eased up as the Washington
Senators took the finale of a three-

While the Browns were being
handcuffed, the Senators hit south-
paw Howard Mills freely and piled up
nine runs, three of which resulted
from Zeke Bonura's seventh inning

singles and a double in the first game
and got three for five in the second,

the nightcap.
Walker poked out two doubles and
a single in the first game and two
doubles and two singles in the second.

No Statistical Tabulations
Made As Yet; Decisions,
Can Only Be Tentative
In the last of his series of talks
about his recent three-year investiga-
tion of the Dravidian languages of
southern India, Dr. Murray B. Em-
eneau, Linguistic Institute faculty
member, yesterday noon described in
detail the curious grammatical and
syntactic features of the Kota lan-
With the prefatory remark that
conclusions as yet could be only ten-
tative because no statistical tabula-
tion has been made, Dr. Emeneau
proceeded to generalize about certain
of the more obvious peculiarities.
Kota,, for instance, is a language
u~ih inly mildly (nthPH- ti d

pressed by a noun that, upon analysis,
is seen to mean really "a razor in
which there is sharpness." There is
no word for "sharp."
An additional curiosity of Kota is
that every tense, mode, and aspect
of the verb has a nominal form, which
functions as a noun. Such a form
may, however, be used in the forma-
tion of a semi-sentence in which there
is no finite-verb; and a string of such
groups several pages long may occur,
said Dr. Emeneau, who declared the
native speaker feels a kind of suspense
uniting such groups until after a
while a finite verb does appear.
