the psychologist, Dean Lloyd Wood-
burne considered particularly the
way in which meaning is learned by
the individual. "The learning pro-
cess," he said, "is such that a thing
is not learned by itself, as in a vacu-
um, but rather is learned in a stiua-
tion of more or less complex circum-
stanees. Hence the sound or appear-
ance of a word suggests the complex
in which it first was learned. In ac-
tual use, however, when we hear a
word we normally select from the
total experience connected with the
word those particular aspects which
are appropriate to the immediate con-
text or situation. If we are reading
an old sea narrative," he declared,
"the expression 'the Horn' would at
once mean nothing but Cape Horn,
and other aspects of our experience
with the word would not come into
attention at all."
The anthropologist's attitude to-
ward meaning appeared in the con-
tribution of Prof. Charles F. Voegelin
of De Pauw University, who asserted
that to him an understanding of
meaning must rest upon the basic
assumption postulated by Professor
Franz Boas of Columbia University,
the assumption that mankind has
a psychological unity. Those differ-
ences which separate groups of peo-
ple into races and nations, he said,
are superficial differences. They are
of two categories: culture and lang-
uage. "Meaning," Professor Voegelin
then concluded, "is simply the corre-
lation of a linguistic unit with a cul-
tural unit." He admitted that since

sociology is not an exact science, the
cultural units are not perfectly iden-
tifiable and hence precise correla-
tion with linguistic units, or words,
is likely at best to be imperfect and

Rosa Will Discuss
Havana Conference
Robert V. Rosa, recently appointed
Teaching Fellow and Tutor in Eco-
nomics at Harvard, will speak on
"The Havana Conference vs. German
Penetration" at 8 p.m. Tuesday in
the Union.
Tom Downs, member of the Na-
tional Policy Committee of New
Amerea will discuss "Conscription
-For What." The talks will be fol-
lowed by an i-nformal question period.
The meeting which will be chaired
by David Stocking, Grad., is sponsor-
ed by New America. Both Rosa and
Downs have been active in Parley
discussions, and Rosa has been a
Rhodes Scholar and former speaker
of the Student Senate.

At least 43 persons were killed near Akron, 0., when a double-engine d freight train and a gasoline-powered railroad coach collided head-on on
the Pennsylvania Railroad near Akron. Most of the dead were burned to death when the gasoline fuel of the shuttle coach burst into flames after the
impact. Shown here is a view of the wreckage with the nose of the loco motive buried deep in the coach.

Soft-Pedaling Invasion Of England

"Snubbed By A Snob"

(Associated Press Staff Writer)
Sudden soft-pedaling of the inva-
sion-of-England idea in Berlin and
Rome may or may not be a highly
significant development of the war
news. Time alone can fully reveal
just how Herr Hitler intends to de-
liver the "blow" which he has told
his people he "knows" will destroy
not only England, but the British
Empire, and do it quickly.
Yet the emphasis laid in Rome on
the difficulties of invading a sea-
moated island like England, and the
prompt concurrence expressed by
Nazi military spokesmen, suggest
that comments were primarily for
home consumption. They threw a
lot of very cold water on what has
been the most favored theme of the
Nazi and Fascist press ever since the
Battle of Britain began.
There have been hints of friction
within Hitler's high command over
the strategy to be followed. Nor can
it be doubted that to the German
military mind the job of getting a
sufficient army across the channel
to cope with the stout-hearted Brit-
ish defense would involve not only
huge German losses, but imperil all
that Nazidom has so far achieved
in the war.
Failure or even a serious reverse
at the outset of an invasion could
change the whole picture, perhaps
let loose pent up hatred of Germany
in conquered regions from Norway
to the Franco-Spanish border. It
would certainly put to the test Russo-
German relations which Hitler boast-
ed to the Reichstag had been "finally
established" beyond possibility of dis-
There is only his word for that, and
such limited confirmation as the Su-
preme Soviet meeting affords. Rus-
sia's recent moves in the Balkans and
Soviet-absorbed Baltic states raise a
question as to what new expansion
enterprise Moscow might attend if
Germany became wholly engrossed

in a doubtful effort to crush Eng-
land by invasion. Even Hitler cannot
doubt that Stalin is playing the game
only in Russian interest, not for the
purpose of helping Nazi Germany
establish complete domination of
In setting forth their new thesis
of the way to attack England the
Nazis cite as an example the alleged
blocking of the Port of Dover and
destruction of its dockage facilities.
That certainly sounds like a more
logical course than to risk invasion.
The bombing of English port facili-
ties around the whole 51,000-mile
perimeter of the island would im-
mensely increase the difficulties of
supplying the island, even if the con-
voy system kept cargo craft moving
at sea in sufficient tonnage.
Every English dock wrecked would
mean that much additional time lost
in unloading ships. It would mean
that vessels would be exposed to
bomb attacks for added days and
nights, while they were riding at an-
chor or unloading into lighters.
Yet the coasts of England, North,
South, East and West, are spotted
with big and little ports virtually all
equipped to some extent to handle
heavy cargoes in an emergency. The
network of hard-paved British high-
ways bring them all into quick ser-
vice for motor transport as well as
rail distribution. London reports,
also, that tank-trap impediments

placed on those highways in the first
fear of sudden Nazi invasion are be-
ing removed or modified to expedite
traffic now that defense forces have
been better organized.
It would take a tremendous step-
ping-up of the German air attack
on English ports to bring her to a
near starvation status by that means
alone. Yet the implication of recent
German and Italian comment is that
it is upon that siege that-,Axis.stra-
tegists are primarily counting for
British Fear Jap
Moves In China
LONDON, Aug. L-(MP)-The fear
that British-Japanese relations might
grow so "progressively worse" that
Japan would resort to military pres-
sure-although probably not to gen-
eral war-was expressed today in
authoritative British quarters.
There was little likelihood in any
case, these sources said, that the
Japanese would take the full long
step to total war, lest other powers-
-the United States, perhaps, or Rus-
sia-then become involved.
These informants speculated that
if the current strains between the
governments persisted and were
heightened, the Japanese might try
first to oust the British from North
China and then from Hongkong.
