Dr. Gale Emphasizes
Dollar and Cents Value
The dollar-and-cents value of
training foreign students in U.S. ini-
versities deserves greater emphasis
during formulation of our enroll-
ment policies, Dr. Esson M. Gale,
director of the International Center,
said yesterday.
He revealed that there will be no
increase of foreign students on cam-
pus in the fall term because of lim-
itations imposed on out-of-state stu-
dents. Quotas established for the
various schools have been filled, thus
limiting enrollment to approximate-
ly 500 foreign students, he said.
"However, we must not forget that
the people of Michigan, and of the
United States, will benefit in a finan-
cial way from the teaching of for-
eign students here," he said.
"In the not-too-distant future, the
students with us now will hold re-
sponsible positions in industry and
government in foreign lands and
they will naturally turn to this
country when they want equipment,
technical advice, or other services,"
he explained.
He cited the example of Indian
industrial engineers who will pur-
chase American equipment when they
return to their homeland and actively
participate in the great industrial
expansion now taking place in that
country.
"To be sure, the importance of
promoting international accord by
training foreign students in ourways
of life is of tremendous significance,"
Dr. Gale said. "But the economic
factor is likewise important, and it
is too often overlooked when we
consider the problem caused by over-
crowding of colleges and the public
tends to wonder why we continue
to make room for students from other
countries."
He advocates coitinued acceptance
of as many foreign students "as con-
ditions will reasonably permit," and
long-range planning for future years
when facilities for higher education
are expanded and greater numbers
of visiting students can be accom-
modated.

Strit Secrecy
Shrouds U.N.
Military Group
NEW YORK, July 27-(P)-The
United Nations Military Staff Com-
mittee, potentially one of the most
powerful groups in world history, ap-
parently is marking time with a
sharp eye on global developments.
Charged with setting up an inter-
national land, sea and air force to
maintain peace in the world, the
committee operates in such strict
;crecy that after six months of ses-
sions here virtually nothing is known
of the progress, if any, made by the
generals and admirals. -
The chiefs of staff of the United
States, Russia, Great Britain, France
and China have seats on the commit-
tee and all have top-ranking generals
and admirals in their delegations.
The veil of mystery has kept even
other groups of the United Nations
in the dark. The Security Council,
its parent body, still awaits reports
from the -committee.
The United Nations press section
puts out a brief notice every time the
committee changes its chairman un-
der a rotation plan, but most of the
time the U.N. shies away from the
group in awe.
This much is known:
1. The committee meets usually
once a week.
2. Delegations have submitted
various memorandums, which have
been discussed, but no definite de-
cisions have been made known.
3. Much of the committee's time
is spent arguing over words which
have a shade different meaning when
translated to another language.
4. Apparently nothing is going to
come out of the committee until the
peace treaty conferences in Paris
end.
Ignatieff To Discuss
Soviet Nationalities
Prof. L. Ignatieff will give, an il-
lustrated talk on the nationalities of
the Soviet Union at the weekly meet-
ing of Russky Kruzhok, the Russian
Club, at 8 p.m. tomorrow in the In-
ternational Center.
Prof. Ignatieff is a visiting pro-
fessor in Russian from the Univer-
sity of London in Ontario.
Following the lecture tea will be
served from' the samovar.
Graves Conferring Here
Mortimer Graves, administrative
secretary of the American Council of
Learned Societies, is spending several
days in Ann Arbor to confer with
members of the Linguistic Institute
and other faculty and administrative
members of the University.

Prof. Eugene Nida To Speak
In Linguistic Lecture Series

By TOM WALSH
The ancient myth about the dull
drudgery of summer school has been
completely exploded here at the Uni-
versity.
Any student needs only to read
The Michigan Daily or one of the
University's 55 bulletin boards to
realize that there are more recrea-
tional facilities and entertainment
opportunities available to him here
than to his vacationing friends in
Detroit or other Michigan cities.
,Sports, outdoor jaunts, plays, lec-
tures, dances, recitals, and countless
special interest groups lend an al-
most infinite variety to the extra-
curricular recreational activities now
open to the summer student.
Sports Readily Available
For the athlete all of the conven-
tional sports are available either
right on the campus or close by-
baseball at Ferry Field, golf at the
University course, tennis at the In-
tramural Building or at Palmer Field,
indoor swimming at the Union, hand-
ball, basketball, volleyball, and bad-
minton at the gyms, and, for the
girls, horseback riding at a coopera-
ting stable.
The out-of-doors enthusiasts who
prefer to enjoy nature in their non-
studious moments can picnic along
the river, canoe on the quiet waters
of the Huron; or take evening strolls
through the Nichols Arboretum which
is only a few blocks from the campus.
On the pleasant, rolling Ann Arbor
Jester Leads
In Texas Vote,

countryside, bicycling is also an ex-
tremely popular pastime. -
Several series of recitals have been
planned for the benefit of the music-
lovers". The Sunday evening series of
Faculty Chamber Music Programs is
presented by guest faculty members,
and contains such noted artists as
violinists Lois Porter and Gilbert
Ross and the well-known duo-pian-
ists, Vronsky and Babin. Also open
to the public without charge is the
Monday night lecture-recital series
entitled "A Survey of Piano Litera-
ture" given by Lee Pattison, noted
pianist and composer, who is Profes-
sor of Music at Scripps College at
Claremont, Cal.
One or two weekly recitals by stu-
dents fulfilling degree requirements
provide additional evenings of re-
laxation and entertainment during
the summer session.
Play Production
Five outstanding plays, including
productions of George M. Cohan and
George Bernard Shaw's works, are
presented for the entertainment of
the summer scholars by the Michi-
gan Repertory Players.
For the theatre goers also, the Art
Cinema League is showing a Span-
ish, a Russian, and three French
movies, including the famed "Pepe
Le Moko" starring Jean Gabin.
The serious student who likes to
mix his recreation and his education
will be most likely to attend the
twenty-one lectures sponsored by the
University of Michigan Summer Lec-
ture Series. With the underlying
theme of "The Social Implications
of Modern Science,' the lectures are
being presented by permanent and
visiting faculty memoers and special
lecturers who are outstanding au-
thorities in their fields.
Besides these campus-wide activi-
ties of general interest there are an
untold number of special interest
groups which are open to all students.
The International Center holds
weekly teas each Thursday where

foreign and American students can
get acquainted and the Student Re-
ligious Association has a similar pro-
gram on Fridays to bring together
people inte 'ested in. the broader as-
pects of religion. The French, Ger-
man, and Russian language study
groups meet regularly, generally for
social events, and the Graduate
Council holds weekly mixers or out-
ings.
The list is hopelessly incomplete;
the interested student can find every-
thing on campus from church groups
and Co-ed charm conferences to
University Flying Club meetings and
"Smash Inflation" rallies.
League Dances
For the highly conventional stu-
dents, the Michigan League holds
dances each Friday and Saturday
evenings.
Indeed, no matter what the apti-
tudes or interests of the summer
student, the University of Michigan
has some type of recreational activi-
ty available for him.
The pendulum has swung a long
way in the opposite direction; in-
stead of being facea with a lot of dull
homework and a desire for some re-
creation, the student here this sum-
mer often has so much of his time
absorbed by the ever-increasing num-
ber of outside activities that beckon
to him that his problem now is how
to complete the required amount of
homework.
Club Picnic Planned
All students planning to attend the
Russian Club picnic are urged to
make their reservations before Wed-
nesday by calling either Violet Mise-
kow or Marcia Bry at 5898.
The picnic will take place at 4
p.m. Saturday at Riverside Park.
Baseball and group singing are
planned for all the Russian Club
members and their iriends who at-
tend the picnic.

By CINDY REAGAN
Prof. Eugene A. Nida, who will
speak on "Systems of Formal Syn-
tactic Structure" at 7:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday in Rackham Amphitheatre, is
the author of a book on "Mprphol-
ogy: The Descriptive Analysis of
Words" released Friday by the Uni-
versity Press.
Prof. Nida is an instructor\ of lin-
guistics at the Summer Institute of
Linguistics at the University of Ok-
lahoma and will speak here as part
of the series of Wednesday evening
lect lres sponsored by the University
Linguistics Institute.
Second Linguistics Volume
The purpose of Prof. Nida's book,
which is the second volume in ling-
uistics to be published by the Univer-
sity Press, is to introduce students of
linguistics to the techniques em-
ployed in the descriptive analysis of
words.
"Morphology" covers a wide range
of problems which occur in the word
analysis of various types of lan-
guages. Prof. Nida's approach to
problems of word analysis is ex-
clusively a descriptive one, but it
takes into consideration the practical
problens of such students as mis-
sionaries and those who are forced to
solve linguistics problems in actual-
language situations.
"In reading the book, students
learn not only about language prob-
lems but they also have the oppor-
tunity to try to solve a series of syn-
thetically constructed problems by
practicing on successively more com-
plex ones," Prof. Nida said. "They
will eventually be qualified to handle.
material from real languages."
Ten Sections
The book is' divided into ten sec-
tions dealing with such subjects as
"The Constituents of Words," "Form-
classes," and "The Criteria for De-
termining Words" as well as a series
of practical suggestions on the col-
lection of data. These include not
only methods of filing but also sug-
gestions on how to work with in-
formants (native speakers).
"The informant is always right,"
says Prof. Nida, "but you must not
let him discourse on the whys and
wherefores of his language. Your
best informants are the everyday
people whom you meet on the street."
Some thirty languages, including
such familiar ones as French, Ger-
man and Spanish, and such unfamil-
iar ones as Chichewa (a Bantu lan-
guage of Africa), Cakchiquel (a lan-
guage of Latin America) and Eski-
mo serve as illustrations which are.
based on Prof. Nida's own investiga-
tion.
Observations Put Into Practice.
The observations of Prof. Nida, are
being put into practice by several

members of the Linguistics Institute
in courses and lectures this summer.
Informants are being used by instruc-
tors of the Institute in the following
languages:
From the Far East: Chinese and
Japanese;
From the Middle East: Gujarati
and Hindustani;
From Europe: Hungarian, Finnish
and Estonian;
From America: Cherokee and Sen-
eca.
"While morphology deals with the
analysis of words as such, syntax
covers the relations of words with
each other,"~ Prof. Nida said.
Although his book deals with the
analysis, his lecture Wednesday will
cover the subject of word relations.
Chinese Doctor
Bfegins Work
A4t U' Hospital
The present condition of China was
characterized as "much improved" by
Dr. Philip T. Liao, who arrived here
Friday after a 12 day non-stop trip
from Shanghai.
Formerly with a hospital in
Chungking, Dr. Liao has received an
assistant residentship at the Univer-
sity Hospital and hopes to stay in
this country to study for a year or
two. He said that China's main prob-
lem is, of course, inflation, for she
has no resources and her heavy in-
dustry has been destroyed by the
Japanese. He praised American help
to China, stating that without it
she could not have won the war.
Dr. Liao gave as his purposes in
coming here, first, to bring his medi-
cal knowledge up to date, especially
in the tuberculosis field, second, to
improve his speaking of the English
language, and third, as he is a Chris-
tian, to attend churches in this
country.
The doctor stated that he hoped to
become a specialist in tuberculosis,
because one is badly needed in
Chungking, where about 70 per cent
of the city's population are afflicted
with the disease. Dr. Liao cited mal-
nutrition,.a bad climate, with almost
no sunshine, congested living condi-
tions, and very poor sanitation as
causes of this high rate.
For a time during the war, Dr. Liao
served as liason officer between the
Chinese and American armies, acting
mainly as interpreter in the Burma
Road sector. Last year he worked
with the United States Army and also
taught Mandarin to American offi-
cers.

"One Nation for All" will be the
topic. of a discussion between Prof.
Edward N. Palmer, a visiting lecturer
in the sociology departmentand five
Ann Arbor high school seniors on a
program at 6:30 p.m. today over
WPAG.
Prof. Palmer who received his post-
graduate degree from the University
of Michigan was awarded a Rosen-
wald Fellowship for graduate studies
in sociology in 1940 and since 1942
has been a member of the faculty of
Fisk University.
Much of Prof. Palmer's work has
been in the sociological study of the
Negro. In 1937 he assisted with the
American Youth Commission in the
investigation of the personality devel-
opment of the Negro youth and later
participated 'in the Carnegie Cor-
poration's inquiry into "The Negro
in America," a study which culmin-
ated with the publication of "An
American Dilemma" and "The Char-
acteristics of the American Negro."
The five students who will discuss
with Prof. Palmer the furtherance of
intercultural understanding among
young people in Ann Arbor High
School are Robert B. Elliot, David T.
Dagiwada and Andrew Frank, mem-
bers of the Student Council, William
C. Godfrey, its president and Lyn H.
Marcus of the Debate Team and the
journalism staff.{
