News Item: LocalBoy Makes Good

Of Hir's Work
Seen Necessary
Recent research in the ancient Hit-
tite language and the growing ac-
ceptance of the Indo-Hittite hypothe-
sis have made necessary a reexam-
ination of the views of the well-known
Indo-Europeanist, the late Prof. Her-
mann Hirt of the University of Gies-
sen, members of the Linguistic Insti-
tute were told yesterday noon by
Prof. E. Adelaide Hahn of Hunter
An examination of Hirt's views of
Indo-European syntax and morphol-
ogy in the light of present knowledge
of Hittite, said Miss Hahn, shows
that in general those views are sup-
ported by the Hittite discoveries, but
that there is one important exception.
These findings are the more remark-
able, it was pointed out, since Hirt
was the type of scholar who, with a
brilliant and intuitive intellect, is in-
clined to be impatient with the slow
accumlation of facts and to spring to
swift generalizations that are not
always susceptible of proof.
The major failure in Hirt's theor-
izing, Miss Hahn declared, lay in his
dogmatic assertion that the original
Indo-European verb developed from
the noun, that is, that the finite verb
developed from the participle, the
infinitive, or the Indo-European ver-
bal in, "-ti." The extreme rarity of
such forms in Hittite was adduced as
evidence which refutes Hirt's conten-
On the other hand, Hirt maintained
that the original sentence was of a
nominal type, that is, without a finite
verb; and Hittite seems to substanti-
ate this claim, since in this language
such sentences are very common. He
asserted also that adjectives are de-
rived from adverbs, and Hittite sup-
ports this assertion, according to Dr.
Hahn, although among the numerous
postulates of Hirt's theory are some
others which the Hittite evidence
flatly contradicts, yet, Dr. Hahn con-
cluded, the weight of that evidence
strikingly justifies the daring guesses
which Hirt incorporated in his great
work on Indo-European syntax.

Dr. J. o. Perrine To Talk
Wednesday; Tickets Are
Available on Campus
Dr. J. O. Perrine, assistant vice-
president of the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company, New York,
and former associate editor of the
"Bell System Technical Journal" will
be heard in a lecture-demonstration
entitled "Cargoes of Speech and Mu-
sic" at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday in the
Lecture Hall of the Rackham School.
Dr. Perrine's talk is sponsored by
the Men's Education Club of the
School of Education. Admission is
by ticket only, but no charge will be
made. Tickets may be secured at the
office of Dean J. B. Edmonson of the
School of Education, at the Summer
Session Office, Room 1213 Angell
Hall, or at Dr. George E. Carrothers'
office, Room 12, University Hall.
Among the unusual demonstrations
of scientific equipment will be that
of a 600-pound, four-throated, high
fidelity loud speaker; a working
model of Bell's first telephone; a mod-
ern "8-ball" microphone; giant and
pygmy vacuum tubes; and other ap-
paratus of modern communication
Several 2,000-mile long distance cir-
cuits also are to be employed in con-
nection with the demonstrations.

Mrs. Gus Barris, wife of a Saginaw small restaurant owner, started
something in Michigan to counteract the state legislature's reduction of
financial aid for crippled children. She filed articles of incorporation
for the Teddy Bear Cooperative Fund for the University Hospital at
Ann Arbor. Private contributions have been promised and will be
sought. She acted after a fight to have her crippled child readnmitted
to the hospital after treatment was once refused.

"Cash running into five figures and four players to be delivered next
year" were given by the Pittsburgh Piraies for John A. Gee, Jr., 23,
Syracuse International League pitcher. Gee (above) is called "base-
ball's biggest man;" he's 6 ft. 9 in. tall, weighs 215. Giants, Cubs,
Yanks, Reds and Senators had bid for the former University of Michi-
gan southpaw.

Trouble Starts As Usual
With ChangeOf Shifts
(Strike Ends; See P. 1 Bulletin)
DETROIT, Aug. 3.-(AP)-Violence
in the General Motors strike con-
tinued today to keep the Detroit
Police Department on an overtime
schedule while representatives of the
Corporation and the United Auto
Workers (CIO) maintained their
quest for a basis of settlement.
Several hundred policemen dis-
persed 100 or more pickets at 3:30
this afternoon at the gates of the
Chevrolet Gear and Axle plant on
Holbrook Ave., a trouble spot for
several days.,
The trouble started as usual with
the change of shifts. As non-strik-
ing workers emerged someone threw
a stone into their midst and the po-
lice charged the pickets. One man
was arrested. Police said the stone
was thrown by him and that it broke
a window in a passing automobile.
Companions attempted to free the'
man seized but were unsuccessful.
Tacks and broken glass have been
spread in the street near this plant
to stop automobie traffic. The Hol-
brook Avenue unit is on the line be-
tween Detroit and suburban Ham-
tramck, a fact which permits demon-
strators to retreat out of the jurisdic-
tio of Detroit police as prudence

Fall hats are flooding the market. It's a little early to be wearing them,
we admit. But it's lots of fun to pick -an early model and admire it on the
shelf for a few weeks. Sometimes the early models are more original and
unusual than later editions. Newest is the "beef eater" model, copied from
the hats worn by yeoman in the English guard. It's a squatty,
blouse-crowned beplumed creation but chic in spite of the gour-
mandish name. Most early fall hats are swaddled in some way-3
0.9 snoods, skull caps, scarfs or what have you. The bustle hat, each
designer putting forth a different version, is causing much chatter.
To be safe, though, invest in one good hat of the conservative
school. A classic brimmed felt is always a requisite.

Blackberry is a newish and ultra smart color to be worn with white;
frosting accents on hot August days. It's a deep wine, almost black, and.
most striking with a deep tan.
Latest Paris reports say that the tendency is to straighten the sil-
houette. Fullness is mostly pulled toward the back in gracefully draped
folds. The beloved dirndl seems to be on the wane except for campus3
.* * *
Tiny guimpes in contrasting colors are being set in at plain necklines
to "pick up" simple dresses. These are shown in pink or blue or i
even dashing fireman red or black dresses.
A little "furrin" news. Guanaco is the South American
fur that makes hulking coats for stadium wear. It's as hardy
as it looks, and the bulky look is smart as paint. Wolverine,
first cousin to a weasel, also gives college girls his coat this fall. f/
Nutrias, sheared beavers and natural lynxes are back because of good report
cards last 'year and will again be popular on the campus. Leopard is again
-showing its spots, this season, however, in more dressy models
than formerly.

Dark brown is a welcome change from black. It's going to
be high style this season and grand with brown furs. Dark green
or grapewine are other good basics and moss green is definitely
stamped Fall, 1939. Blended accessories in various shades of
the costume color are being shown. It's also new to have all
accessories but one match the costume. By way of sharp con-
trasts, ONE bright accessory is used. This may be in gloves, hat
or handbag, named in order preferred. Gold, Atlantic and Pacific blues and
greens, all the mossy greens and bright red are used for contrast with black.

Federal Officials Search
For Person Responsible
MIAMI, Fla., Aug. 3. --)- Con-
vinced they had been victimized by
a hoax, Federal officials started a
statewide search today for the opera-
tor who loaded radio channels with
urgent distress signals through a hec-
tic seven hours last night.
In answer to a stream of erratic
messages, the Coast Guard and priv-
ate shipping vainly searched the At-
lantic off Southeast Florida by air
and water, seeking a British tanker
afire and sinking.
First doubt arose after the un-
known operator had said his ship was
the tanker Dunkwa and Lloyd's of
London reported the Dunkwa safe in
port at Rotterdam.
Further discrepancies in the har-
rowing calls-supposedly sent by a
ship's officer after the radio operator
was badly hurt-were noted soon but
the Coast Guard didn't immediately
abandon its costly search.
Coast Guard headquarters at Jack-
sonville commented bluntly: "The
whole thing stinks."
