Local Ballads
Are Published
By University
"Ballads and Songs of Southern
Michigan," a volume revealing much
of the social background and culture
of the southern peninsula of the
state, has just been published by the
University of Michigan Press.
Compiled and edited by Emelyn E.
Gardner and Geraldine J. Chicker-
ing, of Detroit, the book contains 201
songs and ballads that have been
popular in the rural communities of
the state. The songs included are
limited to "native traditional Michi-
gan folk songs in the English tongue"
and were assembled for the most part
from resident singers in Kent, Ionia,
Kalkaska, Macomb, Arenac, Huron,
and Ogemaw counties.
Included in the collection are 28
of the Child ballads that migrated
from across the ocean to Michigan
and several score of other songs of
English, Scottish, and Irish origin.
Among the Child ballads are such old
favorites as "Lady Isabell and the
Elf Knight," "Lord Lovel," "Barbara
Allen," and the "Lowlands Low." One
of the most recent folk songs to be
found in the book describes the fate
of Floyd Collins in the 1925 Ken-
tucky cave tra edy. All the songs in
the 501-page Volume are arranged in
groups on unhappy love, happy love,
war, disaster, crimes, and humorous
The book is illustrated with pen and
ink drawings of Michigan country
scenes by Wilfred B. Shaw, director
of the University's Bureau of Alumni
Relations and a well known Michigan

tute of Human Relations. The only
difference remaining is confined to
the final elements of certain verb
forms, the indicative suffix "-s", for
instance, being used only by male
The curious conflict between tone
and melody in a song of a tonal
language was both described and il-
lustrated with phonograph recording
by Kenneth L. Pike, a research work-
er with the Mixteco language of
southern Mexico and a member of the
faculty of the Summer Institute of
Linguistics in Arkansas.
Dr. Charles Hockett, a recent schol-
ar in the Amerindian field, pre-
cipitated a discussion with his rais-
ing a question as to the satisfactory
classification of the stop phonemes
in the Ojibway dialect spoken on
Walpole Island in Michigan.
Utilizing the time reserved for
Prof. L. L. Rockwell of Colgate Uni-
versity, who was prevented by illness
from coming to the meeting, Prof.
Hans Kurth of Brown University,
director of the Linguistic Atlas of
the United States and Canada, sum-
marized the Atlas findings with re-
spect to the distribution of the dis-
tinction between such homologous
pairs as "mourning"-"morning,"
"hoarse"--"horse," and "four"-"for."
In the South Atlantic states as far
north as the Potomac, and in the
New England area, such pairs are
differentiated, said Dr. Kurath, by
most speakers. In the Middle At-
lantic area, however, and extending
northward to an undetermined dis-
tance, this differentiation is not made.
There most speakers pronounce
"morning" and "mourning" exactly
alike. Surveys undertaken two years
ago in England by Dr. Guy Lowman,
Linguistic Atlas field , worker, sug-
gest that the differentiatioi has its
basis in the folk speech of southern
and central England outside of Lon-
don. Investigation still must be made,
Dr. Kurath observed, to determine
the origin of the lack of differentia-
tion, a phenomenon which appears
to be on the increase.
Between the afternoon and evening
sessions members of the Society en-
joyed an informal dinner at the
Michigan Union.

Bill Renner To Marry
Youngstown Girl, Aug.


The romance of Michigan-"Land of Hiawatha"-is aptly proved by the tremendous volume of tourist
business done each year. Filled with lakes, falls, riv ers, forests, parks, historic remnants of pioneer days
and steeped in Indian lore, Michigan each year attracts visitors from all parts of North America and this
business is second only to the automotive industry in state income. The job of maintaining all this includes
the construction and servicing of numerous roadside parks, picnic tables, rest rooms, tourist information
booths, rustic markers, historic monuments and Indian artcraft. The National Youth Administration is busy
doing this work for the convenience and satisfaction of millions of summer visitors. The pictures show some
of the products of this NYA work: a tourist booth at Manistee; construction of roadside tables in an Upper
Peninsula workshop; and examples of rustic markers and historic monuments.

Friends of William W. (Bill) Ren-
ner disclosed here today that the
former University football cap-
tain and quarterback would be mar-
ried Aug. 12 to Miss Leah McKelvey,
of Youngstown, O.
The marriage will be held in
Youngstown, the home of Renner
also. Renner, now assistant foot-
ball coach at Yale University, was
a member of the national champion-
ship teams of 1932 and 1933 and cap-
tained the 1935 team.
