PROF. RIBS COLLEAGUES:
Lincoln Speech Revised
Using 'Faculty English'
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(P)-A professor says you'd never recognize
Lincoln's Gettysburg address if you saw it in what he calls the "fac-
ulty English" of some college professors of today.
Prof. Richard D. Fay of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
writing in the Harvard Alumni Bulletin, used the famed Civil War
speech as an example. He showed what it might be when "translated
into faculty English by machine methods." Following are the address
and the translation:

LINCOLN'S VERSION - "Four-
score and seven years ago our fore-
fathers brought forth on this con-
tinent a new Nation conceived in
liberty and dedicated to the propo-
sition that all men are created
equal.
"Now we are engaged in a great
civil war, testing whether that Na-
tion or any nation so conceived
and so dedicated can long endure.
We are met on a great battlefield
of that war.
We Nave come to dedicate a por-
ion of that field, as a final resting
place of those who here gave their
lives that that nation might live
It is altogether fitting Pnd proper
that we should do this.
"But in a larger sense we can -
not dedicate-we cannot conse-
crate-we cannot hallow this
ground The grave men, living
and dead who struggled here;
have consecrated it. far above
our poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor
long remember what we say here,
but it can never forget what they
dlid here.
It is for us, the livik'g rather, to
be cedicated here 6o the unfinished
work which they who fought here
have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be here dei-
cated to the great task remaining
before us-that from these hon-
ored dead we take increased de-
votion to that cause for which
they gave the last full measure of
devotion-that we here highly re-
solve that these dead shall not
have died in vain-that this Na-
tion, under God shall have a new
birth of freedom-and that gov-
ernment of the people, b5 the peo-
ple, for the people shall not perish
from the earth."
'Beach Ball'
To Be Tossed
The third annual "Beach Ball,"
an informal dance sponsored by
the League, will be held from 9
p.m. to midnight tomorrow, in the
League Ballroom.
There will be no admission
charge for the record dance, which
will be presented in a typical wa-
terfront setting, complete with
sea serpents, fish nets, beach balls
and sailboats.
Lemonade will be served in the
League garden, weather permit-
ting. Also the Rumpus Room in
the basement of the League will
be open for serving refreshments.
Previously the League summer
council's annual dance has been
formal, but two years ago it was
decided that a casual warm wea-
ther "Beach Ball" would be more
appropriate.

ACIULTY LANGUAGE-"Eight
and sven-tenths decades ago the
pioneer workers in this continental
area implemented a new group
based on an ideology of free boun-
daries and 'initial conditions of
,qual)ty.
"We axe now actively engaged
in an (verall evaluation of con-
flicting factors in order to dete:
nixie whiether or nt the life ex-
pecta1cy of this group or of any
group cperating unde the stated
conditions is signifiPant We are
met in an area of maximum a-
tivrty among the conflicting fac-
tors.
The purpose of the meeting is
to assign permanent positions to
the units which have been anni-
hilated in the proces of attain-
ing a steady state. This proce-
dure represents standard prac-
tice at the administrative level.
'Ti om a more comprehensive
viewpoint we cannot assign - we
cannot integrate - we cannot im-
plement this area.
"The courageous units, in being
annihilated, who were active in
this area have integrated it to the
point where the application of
simple arithmetical operations to
include our efforts would produce
onl negligible effects.
"The reaction of the general
public to this colloquium will be
nonessential and transitory but the
reaction to the impingement of
the combat group is invariant. It
is for this group in being rather
to be integrated with the incom-
pete activities for which the com-
bat groups who were so active in
this area have so comprehensively
effected the initial implementa-
tin.
.It is preferable for this group
to be integrated with the incom-
pleted inplementation-that from
the standards set by these respect-
ed deceased units we take accel-
erted intensive effort - that we
here resolve at a high ethical level
that the deceased shall not have
beenrai~nihlatd without further-
ing the project - that this grou
under divine leadersnip shall im-
plement s new sour e of unham-
pered activity-and that politcal
supervision composed of the in0-
grated units, for the integrated and
by the integrated unit shall not
perish fron "the superficial area of
this l anet."

Smith's Book.
Printed Here
A biography of the colorful life
of Harry Burns Hutchins, former
University president from 1909 to
1920, has been written by Shirley
W. Smith, '97, and will reach the
bookshelves soon.
Smith was in a strategic posi-
tion to view the passing scene of
University life under Hutchins'
term of office-its men and wom-
en and the events of the period
1875-1920 as well as the innova-
tions under Hutchins term of of-
fice, such as the organization of
the Graduate School as a separate
unit of the University.
Following his graduation in
1897, Smith served as an instruc-
tor, as secretary of the Alumni
Association and, in succession or
combination as secretary, business
manager, vice-president and sec-
retary of the University group
from 1908 until his retirement in
1945.

the fall semester are available, she
added.

LAST SUMMER, students were
able to secure jobs in neighboring
industries, but due to the switch-
over to war-time goods, this field
of employment has been consid-
erably narrowed, she said. Also
there are enough unemployed
construction men available that
these jobs will be scarce too.
The part-time jobs that are
now available include yard work,
gardening, animal care, and
caring for invalids.
Students wishing employment
may talk with Mrs. Gauss in the
Personnel Office in the Admin-
istration Bldg. Women students
must first be referred to that of-
fice by the Office of the Dean of
Women.
The office handles calls for all
types of employment including
local businesses, householders, in-
dividual employers and University
positions.
Gardening, painting, selling,
restaurant, gas station and soda
fountain work, as well as various
University non-academic skilled
jobs including picture hanging,
grounds work and animal care-
taking, are also among the types
of employment that can be secur-
ed during the regular semesters.
Work in the dormitory system,
League, Union, libraries, and in-
dividual department offices are
not handled by the Personnel Of-
fice. These job sources should be
contacted individually, Mrs. Gauss
said.
Calls for part-time and full-
time work for the fall semester are
not being handled until after re-
gistration, so that the working
time can be fitted into students'
schedules, she. said.
