Appropriations Slashed $618,000,000
The result was that the war agen-

from a total of $752,000,000 to $134,-

measure by a voice vote and sent it
to the Senate.
There was brief but angry debate
as all funds for the following agen-
cies were removed:
War Labor Board, $13,100,000; Of-
fice of Defense Transportation,
$7,000,000; Office of Economic Sta-

"An Investigation of Learning a
Second Language" was the topic dis-
cussed by Dr. Harold Dunkel and Dr.
Frederick Agard, of the University of
Chicago, at the first of the Linguistic
Institute's weekly luncheon confer-
ences at the League yesterday.
"We are concerned," Dr. Dunkel
said, "not simply with whether a par-
ticular director of language teach-
ing gets good or poor results, but, if
he gets good results, how he gets
Financed by Rockefeller Foundation
The project with whicn Drs. Dun-
kel and Agard are associated is be-
ing conducted at the University of
Chicago with the financial assist-
ance of the Rockefeller Foundation.
It does not teach language courses or
initiate new methods itself, but serves
as a central agency for investigating
methods used in language instruc-
tion at various institutions through-
out the country. It evaluates re-
sults obtained not only in teaching
foreign languages to speakers of Eng-
lish, but also in teaching English to
those whose native tongue is some
other language.
An important part of its work is
the development of procedures for
testing students' attainments in var-
ious distinct language skills. Tests
for oral comprehension and ability
in speaking have already been devis-
ed, but satisfactory testing proced-
ures for accomplishment in reading
-and writing are still to be developed.
Further Informationx
Further information on the topic
introduced this weekby Drs. Dunkel
and Agard is expected at next week's
luncheon conference, when Prof. Rob-
ert T. Ittner, chairman of the De-

partment of German at Indiana Uni-
versity, will discuss his investigation
of the results obtained by several dif-
ferent methods of language training.
All the conferences will be held at
1 p. m. EWT (12 noon CWT) on
Thursdays in the ABC Room of the
League. They will be preceded by
luncheon at 12 noon EWT (11 a. m.
CWT), in the League dining room
but anyone who cannot be present
at the luncheons is welcome to attend
the conferences.

Predicting that the war in the Paci-
fic will end sooner than most people
believe, Prof. Charles Davis of the
geography department told a meet-
ing of the Men's Education Club last
night that if the Japs don't quit in a
few months, "we'll have to make an
Okinawa out of Japan."
Prof. Davis, who recently return-
ed to the faculty after over two
and a half years in the Navy where
he served as a commander with
the Special Air task Force, said
he doesn't believe the Nipponese
are stupid or hopelessly fanatical.
American industry has won the
war, he asserted, and our forces
know no shortage of material any-
where in the Pacific.
Having worked with the now dis-
banded Special Air Task Force based
in the Solomon Islands, Prof. Davis
described their home base as "ex-
cellent." In addition to all the neces-
sary equipment the base had most
of the comforts of home, good food,
laundry service, beer, and worn out
Dauntless Dive bombers for joy rid-
ing. The officers had waiters and
white table cloths to accompany their
dinner along with a double allowance
of liquor which they had brought
with them.
But life was far more "grim" in
the staging areas, the areas from

which direct strikes at the enemy
were made, Prof. Davis said. There,
officers and men alike ate canned
rations which Prof. Davis described
as "monotonous," and water was
rationed to a quart a day per man.
To take a bath one first ha'd to rig
up some sort of apparatus in. which
to collect rain water, he said.
Medical advances were perceptible
in the bases, Prof. Davis asserted,
and not one of the 1,000 men in the
Special Air Task Force had malaria
or dysentery. The malaria control
officer at one of the bases where
Prof. Davis was stationed had every
man who violated any of the rules
pertaining to the control of malaria
Pointing out the differences be-
tween the life of the supply officers,
personnel officers, and other land
based officers as compared to the
men who actually go in and fight-
the men in the Marine divisions and
the infantry-Prof. Davis said that
the land based Naval officers live
pretty well. On the other hand, al-
most every man in the First Marine
Division has malaria, he said, and
only various medicines keep them go-
