the first display of its kind in
the world, an exhibition of recent
publications and of work in pro-
gress in linguistic geography and
dialectology is being shown at 3015
Rackham Building this week.
Thirty-six countries, including
such. farflung countries as Peru
and Cambodia, are represented by
the work of their scholars, mem-
bers of the International Center
of Dialectology.
The idea] and the organization
of the exhibition came from Prof.

Dialectology. This center has 365
members and its main enterprise

Installed in the big exhibition
room on the mezzanine floor of
the Rackham Bldg., the first thing
which strikes the eye of an ob-
server is an enlarged outline map
of the world done in relief and
illuminated with spotlights. On the
map is Ann Arbor, to which rib-
bons lead from the countries rep-
resented in the exhibit.
Included in the exhibition are
graphs on linguistic geography and
dialectology, journals devoted to
this branch of linguistic research
and samples of field records and
of maps in manuscript.

Dairy Support
Works Well
EAST LANSING(')-The 75 per
cent support rate of dairy pro-
ducts is working out very well,
Secretary of Agriculture Ezra T.
Benson said yesterday.
Benson, at Michigan State Col-
lege to address the Michigan Arti-
ficial Breeders Cooperative, held
a news conference following his
formal address.
He sat with a glass of milk in
front of him and preached his
contention that everyone should
drink more milk.
Consumption Up
"The 75 per cent support rate
is working out very well," Benson
said. "Consumption of dairy pro-
ducts is increasing. I believe we'll
be able to work out the dairy prob-
lem at the present support level.
The only real answer to it is to
increase consumption."
Benson praised the role the press
has been playing in publicizing the
administration's farm program,
"Farmers will make the right
decisions if they have all the
facts," he- said. "The press is an
invaluable help in getting the facts
to them."
Benson was asked about a
charge made by a Democratic con-
gressman that administration lead-
ers had been "pressuring" mem-
bers of the House and Senate to
get through the President's farm
"I haven't heard of it," Benson
said, "and I don't believe it. Pres-
ident Eisenhower doesn't work
that way."
Surplus a Problem
Benson said the grain surplus
continued to be a major problem
for thedAgriculture department.
"Frankly," he said, "I d o n 't
know where we're going to put it.
We have it in boats on the Hudson
River now, in airplane carriers
and in schoolhouses. We're just
about running out of storage plac-
Then Benson returned to his
favorite topic - drinking milk.
"I notice they have a milk dis-
penser in this building," he said.
"They should be placed every-
where that there's a coke maciine.
We have eight milk dispensing
machines in the Department of
Agriculture now, but that's the
first time they've ever been there."
A throng of 2,500 shirt-sleeved
farmers and their wives heard
Benson. In his party were Rep.
Alvin M. Bentley (R-Mich), Kit
Clardy (R-Mich) and Charles Figy,
former director of the State De-
partment of Agriculture and now
an assistant in the Federal Agri-
culture Department.

ity of stockpiling food for use in
the event of war.

to wipe out entire cities," he said,

New Navy Jet
On Test Runs
Capable of Supersonic
Speed in Level Flight
that whisked through the sky over
Long Island during the past week
was disclosed Thursday to be a
new Navy jet fighter capable of
supersonic speeds in level flight.
The wasp - waisted craft, the
Grumman F9F9 Tiger, is described
by the Grumman :.ircraft Engine-
ering Corp. as one of the few com-
bat airplanes in the world capable
of such speed on a level course.
Her builders said she is capable
of supersonic speed whether at sea
level or any altitudes ranging up
to around 50,000 feet. The speed
of sound at sea level is about 760
miles an hour.
Fourth Flight
The new craft completed her
fourth successful flight Thursday
from the corporation's Peconic
River plant on Long Island.
The Tiger made her first flight
Friday. That was four days before
a British jet fighter, the English
Electric P1, also capable'of super-
sonic speed in level, flight, ynade
her maiden test hop in England.
The new American plane is the
first of an undisclosed number of
Tigers Grumnman will produce for
the Navy under a 40 million dollar
Grumman said it designed the
Tiger to meet the Navy's concept
of a powerful carrier striking force
equipped with fast, hard-hitting
aircraft with retaliation ability to
take the fight to any enemy's home
The U.S. Air Force is known to
have at least one airplane that has
exceeded the speed of sound in
level flight-the North American
Aviation, Inc. F100. The Air Force
also has plans for at least two
other supersonic jets, the F102, an
interceptor, and the F104, a
