Used With Frequency
The Hittite grammatical ending
--za, usually thought to be a re-
flexive pronoun form, greatly in-
creases in frequency in later Hit-
tite and is unparalleled elsewhere
in the grammatical structure,
Prof. E. Adelaide Hahn, first wo-
man president of the Linguistic
Society of America, said yester-
day at the seventh regular lunch-
eon conference of the Linguistic
The ending, like the English use
of forms of -elf-as in sentences
like "I did it myself," where it is
only a sort of emphatic or inten-
sive form - cannot always be
translated as a reflexive, Prof.
Hahn said. Hittite, the language
of the ancient Hittite empire of
pre-Biblical times in Asia Minor,
she explained, had remained un-
known until the twentieth century
when the discovery of an exten-
sive series of government records
and other texts, written with
wedge-shaped characters on clay
tablets enabled scholars to study
and translate the language, and
to establish that it is ultimately
related to such modern tongues as
English and French.
Prof. Hahn, who is well known
for her contributions to Hittite,
classical and Indo-European lin-
guistics, holds a chair of Greek
and Latin at Hunter College,
whcre the success of the teaching
of classics has attracted wide no-
tice from educators throughout
The conference was preceded by
a luncheon for members of the In-
stitute and friends, in the Union.

IN SPITE OF WAR:
Decline of Colonialism Seen
As Highlight of 20th Century
By J. M. ROBERTS, JR.
AP Foreign Affairs Analyst
Twice within a few days the
the United Nations has been con-
fronted with manifestations of a
great world movement which may
yet stand in history as the trade-
mark of the 20th century-the de-
cline of colonialism-despite two
and possible more general wars.
The Dutch, because world opin-
ion was piling up against them,
and the Indonesians, because they
were in no position to fight, have
adjourned their brief war in fav-
or of continued negotiation. Neith-
er side had a sufficiently tenable
position to embarrass the UN
The Egyptian demand that Brit-
ain be ordered out of Egypt and
the Sudan may be a horse of a
The Egyptians contend, and the
British have practically admitted
by entering into negotiations, that
the 1936 treaty providing for the
IT CAN'T BE THAT BAD JIMMY-Despite the combined efforts
of a group of circus clowns, little Jimmy Fostor of Chicago, just
couldn't find a thing to laugh at when he attended the opening
performance of a circus in Chicago.
Civil Rights Official To Speak
On Retrial of Condemned Gd
presence of British troops for mu-
tual defense has been outmoded.
No unbiased observer can disagree
with the Egyptian contention that
"an alliance of this sort is but an-
other form of subordination."
But there are certain realities
which Britain must consider.
Among them are Suez, the new
British defense line across middle
Africa to which she has been
forced back by the effect of aerial
warfare in the narrow Mediter-
ranean, and the interest of both
Britain and the U.S. in the Mid-
dle East's oil. Sometimes the
blocks of international relations
fall into strange and immoral
patterns, yet they cannot always
be changed arbitrarily without
threatening the necessary as well
as the bad part of the structure.
As in Palestine, Anglo-Ameri-
can fear of Communist influence
among the Moslems is an ever.-
present factor. Just as in the
ancient days of Muscovy, Russia
seeks to move into every weak
spot that develops. The Western
Powers don't want to see any area
Casbah T o resent
Leap Year Dances
The Casbah is doing its bit to
prepare the campus for leap year
with two Sadie Hawkins dances
to be given from 9 p.m. to mid-
night Friday and Saturday.
Couples and stags may attend.
The only requirement is that ev-
eryone come in jeans or old
clothes. Al Chase and his band
will provide the music.
The dances are being held to

man, of having "sold out to the
real estate lobby."
Brown persuasively presented a
number of arguments against the
Taft housing bill which are in
keeping with the real estate men's
basic aim of "keeping the govern-
ment out of the housing business."
l.) The bill will cost too much.
2.) It extends unsound credit
by authorizing 95 per cent mort-
gages on small homes.
3.) Our economy doesn't need
the expanded credit it provides.
4.) The insurance companies
are opposed to the guaranteed
realty clause which would guaran-
tee them a minimum return in an
effort to stimulate construction.
5.) It gives the federal govern-
ment a blank check to engage in
6.) Private housing can do the
job and do it better.
The effectiveness of these argu-
ments and of the real estate lobby
itself will be tested during the
next session when an election is
in the offing and a large number
of "liberal" groups are lobbying
for the Taft bill on the basis of
the public's need for housing.

The retrial of Pvt. Lemas Woods,
jr., who was sentenced to be hang-
ed for the shooting of his tent-
mate on March 23, 1946, will be
discussed by Mrs. Ann Shore, ad-
ministrative secretary of the Civil
Rights Congress, at a meeting of
the Inter-Racial Association, at
7:30 p.m. today in the Union.
The Civil Rights Congress,
which organized the Pvt. Lemas
Woods, jr., Defense Committee,
and UAW attorney Ernest Good-
man, who investigated the case,
were instrumental in securing
President Truman's order that
Woods be granted a new trial on
the ground that the evidence did
not warrent his conviction.
Woods, who has been in prison
for more than a year, and in vir-
tual solitary confinement since
April, 1947, when he was returned
to the United States from the
Philippines, was judged guilty of
murder in a three-hour court-
martial, principally on the basis
of a confession he had been forc-
ed to sign. Lt. Robert G. Guenzel,
who conducted the prosecution at
Woods' court-martial, later ques-
tioned the reliability of the evi-
dence leading to conviction. "The
acts of the accused subsequent to
the shooting," he said, "did not in-
dicate a planned murder . . . the
accused was acting as a frightened
man rather than as a calculating
murderer would act."
Despite the fact that the Crim-
inal Investigation Laboratory had
reported that the net covering the
cot of the victim contained holes
with evidences of powder marks
such as a bullet passing through
it would leave, Goodman revealed,
this evidence was omitted at the
Letter to Father
The words " ... sitting here
waiting to be hanged for some-
thing I did not intend to do" in a
letter that Woods managed to
get to his father after the court-
martial, aroused the Civil Rights!
Congress and the UAW attorney.
Woods was cleaning his gun, he
said, when it discharged accident-
ally and killed his tent-mate.
Rev. T. Timberlake, president
of the Baptist Ministers' Confer-
ence, and George F. Addes, Inter-
national Secretary-Treasurer of
the UAW-CIO, are co-chairmen
