Roosevelt, Stimson Decide
To Call 50,000 National
Guards To Camps Soon
Authority Needed
From Congress
WASHINGTON, July 12.-(M)-A
decision to call about 50,000 National
Guardsmen to camps as soon as pos-
sible for perhaps a year's intensive
training was reached today by Pres-
ident Roosevelt and his new Secre-
tary of War, Henry L. Stimson.
The decision is contingent upon
approval by Congress, which would
have to authorize the unprecedented
peacetime step. The authority will
be asked when Congress reconvenes
after the Democratic national con-
Stephen Early, presidential secre-
tary, announced the decision and
said that four divisions, seven anti-
aircraft regiments, and an undeter-
mined number of harbor defense
regiments would be called.
Location Of Divisions
One division, he said, will come
from New York and New Jersey, a
second from Tennessee and the
Carolinas, a third from New Mexico,
Oklahoma, Arizona and Colorado,
and the fourth from Oregon, Wash-
ington, Montana and Idaho.
Once their training is completed,
he said, consideration will be given
to the question of extensing the
training to other guard units.
The training will be designed to
familiarize the guardsmen with mod-
ern weapons and military practices
and is expected also to fit them for
training the thousands of conscripts
who will be called to service if Con-
gress enacts a compulsory military
training law.
Conscription Endorsed
Both - the Army and Navy high
commands have endorsed conscrip-
tion. Testifying before the ;Senate
Military Committee, Gen. George C.
Marshall, Army Chief of Staff, said
today that it was essential to the
national defense.
The divisions mentioned by Early
are the 44th, 30th, 45th, and 41st.
A War Department spokesman said,
however,' that' their selection for
training was entirely tentative.
If Congress approves the plan, he
said, the question of which units to
call will be reexamined in the light
of facilities available at that time.

One hundred strong, the young
men of the University of Michigan
Fresh Air Camp made ready last
night for their annual invasion of
Ann Arbor, Tuesday. so that more
youths, like themselves, may enjoy
the privileges of outdoor life on Pat-
terson Lake.
The Fresh Air Camp boys, with
three weeks of sun tn and whole-
some food under their belts, will
come here accompanied by their
counselors. They will canvass the
campus and the downtown district,
selling tags with the familar Fresh
Air Camp youngster pictured on it.
This is the Camp's 20th year, and
in that time more than 6500 under-
privileged and maladjusted boys
from this area have been given the
opportunity to get away from the
city stiets and to live healthy, happy
vacations on the Camp's 180 acre-
location, 25 miles west of Ann Arbor.
Source Of Income
Tag Days, such as the one to be
held here Tuesday constitute one of
the Camp's principal sources of in-
come, and the boys, their counsel-
ors and camp officials say "we're
depending on you, Ann Arbor."
Camp officials are enthusiastic and
hope for the "best summer Tag Day
in our history."
The camp season is divided in
two, with two groups of 140 boys
spending four week period at the
camp. The second group of boys will
start Monday, July 22.
Counselling these boys through a
full outdoor program of swimming,
boating, hiking and nature study
are 35 experienced University grad-
uate students, most of whom are
school teachers. These men are en-
rolled in education and sociology
courses on the camp site, which are
directed by Prof. Wilbur D. West, of
Wittenberg College, Springfield, O.,
and Dr. Stuart Lottier, of Detroit
Recorder's Court. They keep a full
day-to-day record of the boys signif-
icant behavior characterists and peri-
odic conferences are held to develop
accurate diagnoses.
Aims Of Camp
The aims of the camp are better
citizenship, development of leader-
ship, eliminnation of motivations for
delinquency, community cooperation
and conditioning of "happier heal-
thier and more useful citizens."
The Camp Committee is headed by

Planes believed to have been Ger-

The Germans yesterday smashed
again, as they have done, day after
day, at British shipping on the east
and south coasts.
The most savage blows were aimed
in Northeast Scotland, where at least
10 persons were reported killed. This
attack may have been directed from

By these new raids in Scottish
areas, a rough outline of the Nazi
program seemed to emerge: a series
of rotating attacks designed to hit
every so often every section of the
British Isles.
The Scottish fatalities were de-
scribed ominously in the phrase. "as
far as is known" and it was clear
that the list of the dead and injured
there might be much higher.
How many other casualties had
occurred on the east, southeast and
southern coasts was not permitted
to be published.
Unofficial tabulations of the slain
in raids - from June 18 up to this
evening showed 167 deaths.

(Special to The Daily)
Twenty - two excursionists donned
heavy sweaters and coats tonight to
brave the chill winds sweeping over
the lake as the sixth Summer Session
excursion ploughs its way through
choppy waters toward Buffalo and
Niagara Falls.
It's a man's paradise, eighteen of
the twenty-two Michiganders on
board being women. Some are dan-
cing to the music of the ship's or-
chestra as this is being written, while
others, of sterner metal, are literally
sneezing at the cool weather and
squally gusts on deck in order to see
the half moon in a clear sky cut a
path of silver, foamy whitecaps
across the dark void of Lake Erie.
Shortly after dinner in the ship's
spacious salon, the group found in-
teresting passing freighters and wav-
ed at the deck hands in passing, but
now, far out from where the ship-
ping lanes concregate to enter the
Detroit River, another boat is in-
frequently seen. Once in a while the
lights of a passing vessel can be made
out to one side or another.

Bloomfield Simplifies Problem
Of Understanding The Phoneme

(Special to The Daily)
GOLDEN LAKE, July 12.-The
third week at Camp Filibert Roth,
the Uniersity's Forestry School Sum-
mer Camp, started with, class and
field work well under way.
The greater portion of the vicinity
of Camp has been visited by the
students in their daily field trips.
Mapping of the Mallard Lake re-
gion for fire control purposes has
acquainted the boys with swamp
and dry land timber types.
Although the mapping in the
swamp has wet many feet, the out-
door work and vigorous exercise has
resulted in an increase in appetite
and something to look forward to at
the end of the day--supper. In-

sung in the glow of the campfire

of the songs were unfamiliar to the
transfer students, they made up in
quantity what they lacked in quality.
The second "Campfire" held on
July 7 was taken over by the Mich-
igan Union Dormitory. Each week
one of the dormitories will present
a program as their contribution to
the contest and at the end of the

Prefacing his discussion of "The
Phoneme" with explanations of what
is meant by the scientific way of
looking at language, Professor Leon-
ard Bloomfield, head of the depart-
ment of linguistics at the University
of Chicago, last night delivered the
first of a series of five weekly lec-
tures which he is to give under the
auspices of the Linguistic Institute.
With the announcement that in
all his lectures he would seek to
speak to the layman and not to the
trained linguist, Professor Bloom-
field remarked that. two difficulties
confront the layman when he tries
to look at language. The first is that
because he is highly literate, he
thinks of language as writing. The
second is that because he himself
uses a certain language, he is too
sophisticated; he thinks of all lang-
uages in terms of his own language,
instead of seeing a language naively

'chin,' 'djinn,' 'bin,' 'din,' 'win,' 'sin,,
'shin,' and 'fin.' The elements that
make these differences are what are
recognized as phonemes."
After discussing briefly differing
opinions as to the exact nature of
the phoneme, Professor Bloomfield
declared it to the his opinion that
the clue to understanding this basic
linguistic concept is ultimately to be
found not subjectively apprehended
points of mutual exclusiveness or re-
semblances but rather in the object-
ive criteria to be determined by labo-
ratory techniques.
Professor Bloomfield offered also
his modification of a linguistic gen-
eralization long accepted by many
scholars, namely, that phonetic laws
have no exceptions. A better state-
ment, he said, would be simply that
phonemes change. It is clear from
dialect grography that phonemes do
not change over a wide area. Wide-
