Talk On Shifts
In Word Usage
Hunter College Professor
Declares Process An Old
One In Spite Of 'Purists'
Convincing evidence of the author-
ity of the process by which a word
usage shifts from one part of speech
to ,another appeared last evening in
the address on ancient Hittite "kwit-
man" given by Dr. E: Adelaide Hahn,,
professor of Latin and Greek at Hunt-
er College, before members of the Lin-
Despite protests of language "pur-
ists" that a word must not change
from. one part of speech t- another,
that, for example, "like" must not be-
come a conjunction because it is a
preposition, such changes occurred'
thousands of years before any "pur-
ists" began objecting. This fact was
apparent in Dr. Hahn's detailed an-
alysis of Hittite inscriptions which.
show how "kwitman" the adverb
giadually became used as a conjunc-
tion in independent clauses. That is,
its neaning changed with its shift of
function, from "meanwhile" or "for
some time" to both "while" and "un-
Particular attention was placed by
the speaker upon the close parallel
with the Latin "dum" of similar
mi4ning, which, although there are
some exceptions to the general an-
alogy, nevertheless had a strikingly
timilar history of functional altera-
tion. This parallelism, and the im-
plicit one wtih analogous phenomena
in English, mode clear the strength
of this kind of process as a device of
language growth and efficiency.

are associated in managing Adamick;

Four-Hit Attack Brings Yankees
A6-1 Victory Over Cleveland
CLEVELAND, Aug. 5.--fP)-The
Yankees collected only four hits to-
dgy, but Joe Gordon whacked a hom-
er and young Bobby Feller kindly
walked 11 batters to give the New
Yorkers a 6 to 1 decision over the
Indians in the lopening tilt of their
important three-game series. A
crowd of 62,773 turned out for thel
The victory, achieved behind fine
five-hit pitching by Bump Hadley,
sent the Yanks 31/ games in front
of the Tribe in the American League
race, the biggest edge they have en-
joyed this season..
Feller just couldn't find the plate.
In fact, he was the best man the
Yanks had on the field. He had run-
nets on base in every one of the seven
innings he worked, twice walked three
batters in a row, and once walked
in a run, as he lost his sixth game of
the season. For Hadley, it was the
fifth victory of the year, compared
with three setbacks.
The Yanks played without the serv-
ices of Bill Dickey, their ace catcher,
who was sidelined with an ailing leg,
but Joe Glenn, who handled the re-
ceving chores, filled in capably.
Joe Gordon hit his 15th homer of
the year with one on in the seventh.
Frank Crosetti stole three bases dur-
ing the game.
1oston Noses Tigers
DETROIT, Aug. 5.-()--Scoring
six runs in the last two innings, the
Bost6n Red Sox came from behind
to down the Detroit Tigers, 9 to 8,
ii a 10 inning battle today. Joe
Cronin's homer with the bases full
enabled Boston to tie the score at 8-
all in the ninth.
Behind 8 to 3 and apparently hope-
lessly beaten, the Red Sox staged
a:five run uprising to knot the count
in the ninth as Auker appeared to
lose all of his stuff. Peacock batted
for Desautels and walked. Leo Non-
nenkamp batted for Heving and
dropped a single in left. Cramer
also singled, filling the sacks.
Fannnnr .'nnrad nPater fhp rnnh7 n
sacks became filled again, Cronin
then hit a homer into the right field
bleachers, scoring Nonnenkamp, Cra-
mer and Foxx ahead of him.
The blow finished Auker, Tommy
Bridges replacing him. Chapman
doubled to left. Doerr popped. Tabor
singled to third, Christman making
a brilliant stop to prevent a double
and run. Gehringer then threw out
Doubles by Cramer and Cosmik
gave Boston a run in the tenth that
decided the game. Harry Eisenstat
relieved Bridges after the tally had

went out in order in its half.
BROOKLYN, Aug. 5.-(A)-The
Cincinnati Reds climbed back to a
third-place tie in the National League
race today by whipping the Dodgers,
4 to 1. The defeat dropped the
Brooklyns into sixth place, behind
the idle Boston Bees. Dolph Camillij
clouted his 16th homer of the year.
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 5.-(A)-The St.
Louis Browns eyed seventh place to-
day after taking the first of a four-
game series with Connie Mack's Ath-
letics, 9 to 2. But to hoist themselves

Gabby Streets' lowly crew will have
to sweep the remaining three games.
