Southeast Asia: MValayo-Polyne-
sian and Thai;
The Far East: Chinese and Japan-
The Americas: American English,
Chatino, Mazateco, Otomi and Sier-
Of general public interest are
three papers offered at the Friday
night session. Prof. E. H. Sturtevant
of Yale University will talk on "The
Origin of Language" a topic which
because it has been traditionally ta-
boo at meetings of linguists is bound
to raise considerable discussion.
Prof. Sturtevant's paper will be
followed by a lecture by the president
of the Linguistic Society of America,
Prof. Adelaide Hahn of Hunter Col-
lege. "The Phoneti6 Basis of Ventrilo-
quism" is the topic of a third talk, by
Prof. K. L. Pike who is well known
to Ann Arbor people for his yearly
demonstrations of the technique of
beginning a descriptive analysis of a
language unfamiliar to him.
In addition to the specific language
papers offered, three survey papers
will be read on Saturday morning. Dr.
E. A. Nida of the Summer Institute of
Linguistics at the University of Ok-
lahoma andnauthor of a book newly
published by the University of Michi-
gan Press, "Morphology : The De-
scriptive Analysis of Words," has
just returned from a trip to Eng-
land and will discuss "Recent Lin-
guistic Research in Great Britain."
Prof. F. Frauchiger, head of the
modern language department at the
University of Oklahoma, will report
on the development of American In-
dian ,studies at that university and
Dr. Thomas A. Sebeok of Indiana
University will read a paper on "The

CLEVELAND, July 31-(P)- Bob-
by Doerr's single in the second inn-

today as the Cleveland Indians' fire-
ball ace became the second Major

with a 4 to 1 triumph over the Bos-
ton Red Sox.

liams for the first time this year and
fanned eight other Sox to rocket his
total for the season to 239. Feller
swept honors for the day by belting
a towering two-run triple in 'the
second and scoring the Indians' third
marker a moment later.
Rudy York, Hefty Boston 'first

been a feature of the League Leaders'
Pennant drive, went downaswinging
three times on Bob's fast ball.

PEIPING, July 31 --P)- Rumors
that U.S. Marines and Chinese Com-
munists had mixed in a second clash
of arms on the road to Tientsin
spread through Peiping today in a
blackout of official information.

silence after anouncing three Marines
were killed and 12 were wounded
Monday by "armed, uniformed Chin-
ese" in a cornfield ambush 35 miles
southeast' of PeipJing. Unofficial
sources said a fourth Marine died of
Unable to get anything official,
Peiping ground out rumors by the
hour. The top one was a wholly un-
confirmed story that 300 Marines
rushed from Tientsin to search for
missing comrades, engaged in a "run-
ning fight" with Communists and
suffered more casualties.
