Prevention Of
Accidents Is
Lecture Topic
Selling Criticizes Standard
Drivers License T es I s
As Not True Measures
Emphasizing the importance of the
attitude of the driver and the obser-
vance of traffic laws as the most im-
4ortant factors in preventing acci-
dents, Dr. Lowell S. Selling, director
of the Psychopathic Clinic of the De-
troit Recorders Court, spoke on Acci-
' dent Prevention yesterday in the
transportation engineering division of
the East Engineering Building.
Dr. Selling, a Michigan graduate,
pointed out that, as a rule the stand-
ard type of tests given motorists for
drivers licences does not really mea-
sure the motorists ability to keep out
of' accidents. Often, a driver, who had
been eliminated because of poor eye-
sight has sufficiently good eyesight
to drive in a way that would prevent
his getting into an accident.
Reaction tests are not reliable
either, he pointed out, as the reaction
time usually changes under various
circumstances. Their greatest use is
to show the presence of a disease in-
dicated in cases where the reaction is
unusually slow.
The general attitude toward traffic
l1ws and the rights of others, the abil-
ity to read traffic signs and a know-
e'dge of the existing traffic laws all
play important parts in the accident
prevention program, he said.
Emotional stability cannot be ne-
lected, he stated, as both have such
a great influence on the number of
traffic deaths per year. He cited a'
device recently built in England to
demonstrate the importance ,of emo-
tional stability. The mechanism is
real enough so that people often get
tle same reaction as when actually
One of the greatest advantages of
di'ivers licences, he pointed out, is the
fact that they can be taken away if
the owner is caught doing reckless
driving, thus making the possibility
of revocation an incentive to safety.
. Dr. Selling told of the different
miethods used in the clinic to dis-
cover the shortcomings of the usual
automobile tests, and their compara-
tive success.r

nitions, then he is confronted with
the problem of arranging those
senses, a problem which has' to be
solved since in a book the definitions
can't be printed on top of one an-
"Webster saw," said Professor
Knott, "that this arrangement must
depend upon the etymology of the
word. William Dwight Whitney ,of
Yale, editor of the 1864 Webster,
nut have read Webster's introduc-
tion, for he tried to arrange senses
by that principle. And, despite the
lack of etymological evidence then,
he did such a good job of clever sur-
mising that the Oxford dictionary
often found that its historical treat-
ment was simply a duplication of
Whitney's arrangement.
"But all that has been done is not
enough, though it is in the right li-
rection. Not only must future dic-

tionary editors base their analysis of
the meanings of a word upon the
etymology, but linguists must do
much more to supply not only the
etymological form but also the va-
rious meanings in older and cognate
languages in order that the editor and
other scholars may know what to
hunt for. Often a new meaning is
discoverable' when we know that such
a meaning appears in a related lan-
Supporting Professor Knott with
specific examples drawn from edi-
torial work on the Middle English
and Early Modern English diction-
aries, Dr. James F. Rettger, one of
their associate editors, showed just
how a knowledge of the etymological
background aids the lexicographer.
He used the treatment of the words
"land" and "labouren" (modern
English "labor") to reveal, for ex-
ample, that etymology must be fol-
lowed as far as it is known, but that
when evidence fails then recourse
must be had to the principles of
chronology and logic in ordering the
senses of a word.

Thrown To The Fish ..,
If our memory serves us correctly,
Dean was getting $25,000 from the
Cardinals last year. He finished the
season with a sore arm, mainly be-
cause he was thrown into the breach
every time Manager Frisch wanted'
him thrown. His toe injury, incurred
in the All-Star Game, led to a re-r
vamped pitching motion and this in
turn led to his sore arm.
So The Dizzy One ended the
year with 13 games won and 10 ,
lost, an act which displeased you
and the Front Office g greatly.
What right had Dean to disap-
point you? After he had won a
pennant and a World Series and
kept your battered club up in the
running and the customers at
your turnstiles, you had every
right to ellpect him to continue
to do the same. And so you cut
his salary.
It had taken four years of great
pitching for Dean to show you he de-
served to get $25,000 but when he dis-
appointed you one year, you wanted

All this makes one wonder
about Tony Lazzeri. Lazzeri is, or
was, a ballplayer's ballplayer. He,
was smart, well-liked and seems
admirably suited for a managerial
role.-But now Tony has about as
much chance of leading the Cubs
as Joe Loduis has of becoming the
mayor of Richmond. Which
leaves Lazzeri as well as Grimm
out in the cold, their fate in the
hands of the baseball moguls.
One of the three strongholds of
baseball for baseball's sake has fallen.
Only Jake Ruppert's Yankees and
Tom Yawkey's Red Sox remain.
When these two go, as they will if
they follow the trend, then we must
realize that baseball is entirely a
game of profits-and heaven help
the ball player who stands in the way.
He hasn't even got a union.
