ledge of a language he has never
heard before will be shown by Prof.
Kenneth L. Pike in a public lecture
demonstration at 7:30 p.m.. today in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.
Prof. Pike, Director of the Sum-
mer Institute of Linguistics centered
in Mexico and professor of linguistics
at the University of Oklahoma, is
here as a member of the staff of the
Michigan Linguistic Institute, spon-
sor of. the lecture.
In his demonstration Prof. Pike
will attempt the beginning of a des-
criptive analysis of a language un-
known to him. On the platform he
will meet a speaker of this language
which he has never heard before and
he will use during the demonstration

the government it is as yet mpossible
to tell which party the people favor.
In the United states, Prof. Slos-

On the question of continuation of
the O.P.A., Prof. Slosson said that in
spite of the backing by many of de-
controlling industry, Gallup polls
and the like indicate that the people
would prefer controls.
Whether we will have a great in-
