T eXt Reform
There is a need'for more studies
in language learning with respect
to the changes in established ha-
bits in the native language, Prof.
Albert H. Marckwardt of the Eng-
lish department said yesterday.
He spoke at the third of a ser-
ies of conferences for English
teachers on "Standards for Gram-'
mar and Usage in Composition."
Our schools have an ambitious
program compared to that of oth-
er countries, the professor said.
But, he added, the structure and
usage of our English has changed
and our textbooks have not kept
up with these changes.
He said that at the present time
there is "definite need for a re-
Teachers should keep critically
informed of what goes on and
what changes are being made,
being able to separate the realistic
from the traditional. He said that
a constant attempt should be
made to have the textbooks meet
the needs of the classroom and
the English standard.

Expert Says East and West
Face Communism Together
Characterizing the impact of
materialistic values today upon
the Mohammedans of the Near
East, Prof.-Emeritus B a y a r d
Dodge, of the American Univer-
sity at Beirut, Lebanon, said yes-
terday that "Christians and Mo-
hammedans alike are facing the
same menaces of Communism, se-
cularism, and indifference."
He lectured on "The Religious
Outlook vs. the Secular Outlook
in the Near East" as part of the
University Program of Near East-
PROF. DODGE, an expert in
Near Eastern languages, described
the conflicts that envelop the old-
er generation of Moslems still
clinging to ancient religious laws
and customs as set down in the
Koran, and the younger, western-
ized groups who "are drifting
away from the old, orthodox prac-
.tices of Islam."
To Perform Here
Robert Cato, guest organist
from the Fort Street Presbyterian
Church in Detroit, will give a re-
cital at 4:15 p.m. today in Hill
He : will play: "Concerto in A
minor (after Vivaldi) ;" "The Tu-
mult in the Praetorium (Passion
Symphony) ;" "Chorale Prelude 'A
Rose Breaks Into Bloom' " by Jo-
hannes Brahms and "Allegro from
the Sixth Symphony" by Charles
As the possible solution to this
growing clash of ideology among
Moslems, Prof. Dodge emphasied
the role of leadership that must
be played by those Moslems who
seek "to re-interpret the old reli-
gion-discarding outmoded anti-
quities, but retaining its spiritual
This point of view, he went on,
"does not condemn religion ....
it emphasizes eternal values, but
realizes the importance of politi-
cal, social, and economic develop-
Role of Group
The beliefs and attitudes of an
individual are grounded in the
groups to which he belongs, ac-
cording to Prof. Dorwin Cart-
wright of the psychology depart-
Prof. Cartwright spoke on the
role of the group in education yes-
terday in the University High
School Auditorium. His lecture
was one of a series of summer
session education lectures.
Suggesting that a group ap-
proach to the problem of the un-
ruly child in the classroom may
often be more effective than in-
dividual urging in bringing the
offender into line, Prof. Cart-
wright stressed the fact that the
person whose attitude is to be
changed must have a strong sense
of belonging to the group.
