C. F.KetterIr
Is Atimnus
Of the Year'
Ohio State Graduate
Third To Be Honored
Charles F. Kettering, noted in-
ventor and retired vice-president
of General Motors, yesterday was
named "Alumnus of the Year" by
the American Alumni Council
meeting here Monday through
Thursday.
Kettering, an alumnus of Ohio
State University, is the third per-
son to receive the award. He was
chosen from among the world's
8,000,000 graduates.
Mme. Chiang Kai-shek received
the award in 1944 and Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1946.
Some 350 alumni directors from
American and Canadian institu-
tions are attending the 33rd an-
nual council conference.
Kettering was cited by the group
for his work as a research scien-
tist, as an inventor and as a hu-
manitarian for his work in con-
nection with the Sloan-Kettering
Institute for Cancer research.
He was also praised as an
"American, whose rise from hum-
ble background to international
eminence has demonstrated the
power of education and a free
society to develop a productive
citizen and a noble soul."
In addressing the council, Ket-
tering advised college graduates
"not to get discouraged at repeat-
ed failures." He ranked practice
and the ability to profit from fail-
ure as the chief factors of success.
Culture Based
On Language..
Prof. Hockett
Only by putting words on paper
and developing languages was all
of man's culture arrived at, ac-
cording to Prof. Charles F. Hock-
ett, assistant professor of linguis-
tics, Cornell University.
Dr. Hockett, who spoke yester-
day before the Linguistic Insti-
tute, described writing as the sec-
ond fundamental technological
and biological revolution in hu-
man development, preceded only
by language.
"Writing is man's external brain
and its existence produced the
cumulative effect of 15,000 years
of human development," he said.
For hundreds of thousands of
years mankind struggled through
an existence learning slowly and
repeating mistakes made genera-
tions before because there was no
way to record the answers. With
the advent of writing, about 15,000
years ago, the rate of man's en-
tire development was vastly in-
creased, he stated.
"This means of spanning time
and space permitted us to write
chemical formulas and logarithms
that the human mind could not
retain," Dr. Hockett said.
