DELPIA, June 28 (Friday) -(P)-
Wendell Willkie, the 48-year-old
political miracle man, stampeded
the Republican National Convention
early today into a sixth-vote nom-
ination as its 1940 Presidential can-
The Indiana-born utilities execu-
tive, who has fought the New Deal
up hill and down dale for years,
surged into the Convention with
105 votes on the first ballot and
gained by big jumps on each suc-
ceeding roll call until the nomina-
tion was his.
Running third at the start to
Thomas E. Dewey and Senator Rob-
ert A. Taft, he quickly passed both,
and then he and Taft left Dewey
so far to the rear that during the
fifth ballot the New York district
attorney withdrew and released his
Noisy Crowd
It was a spectacular noisy crowd
that watched Willkie reach the last
rung of his brief and abrupt rise
from dark horse to Convention stam-
peder and Republican nominee.
From the start it was for Willkie.
It shouted for him, it yelled for him,
stamped and applauded every time
a single gain for its candidate was
registered. Taft had his supporters
in the galleries, too, but judging by
the noise, they were badly outnum-
bered at all times.
The break to Willkie came abrupt-
ly on the last three ballots.pGov.
Alf M. Landon, the 1936 nominee,
announced that his Kansas delega-
tion had swung solidly from Sen-
ator Capper to Willkie. On the same
roll call Willkie bagged 75 New York
votes, where he had had only a few
of them before.
Willkie Off To Lead
When the sixth call of the roll
began the race had narrowed down
to one between Willkie and Taft,
and the former got away to a lead.
Sensing the moment it had been
awaiting, the moment in which a
possible future President of the
United States was being made, the
crowd leaned forward.
Finally, Virginia's vote gave Will-
kie 303 votes-two more than were

Marckwardt Traces Dixie Speech
InNorth; Sturtevant To TalkMonday

Linguistics Scholar
Folk Speech In
Region; Continue


To the student of American speech
Dixie's northern boundary is not the
Mason and Dixon line, said Prof.
Albert H. Marckwardt Thursday in
discussing "The Survey of Folk
Speech in the Great Lakes Area" be-
fore the Linguistic Institute lunch-
eon conference.
The pronunciation "greazy," he
pointed out, "is a southern character-
istic found through Indiana as far
north as Fort Wayne." Similarly
the Hoosier will speak of a "pulley-
bone," using a term common in
North Carolina and Virginia, instead
of saving "wishbone" the word gen-

Wisconsin. Of each informant, Pro-
fessor Marckwardt explained, the
field worker asksrabout 550 questions
during several interviews totalling
seven or eight hours. The replies
provide information, often uncon-
sciously revealed, about local pro-
nunciatiois, grammatical peculiari-
ties, and 'regional names for objects.
Pronunciation is recorded in a com-
plex phonetic transcription.
Supported by a grant from the
Rackham Research Fund, the project
in itself will produce by. the end of
the current year more than 50 field
records gathered from such inform-
ants, Dr. Marckwardt said. Recent
aid from the University of Wiscon-
sin and Ohio State University in
the supplying of an investigator to
carry on additional work in those
