' Madison, Wis.—Two professors from : the University of Oslo, natives of Nor- ] way, are studying the Norwegian language in Wisconsin. j Dr. Didrlk Arup Seip and Dr. R W., Selmer dispelled the apparent paradox, • however, by explaining they wanted . to take hack samples of Norwegian as it is spoken by desendants of early j Norwegian immigrants. [ Equipper with a phonographic re- \ cording machine the two professors ^ are going into various communities near Madison in an effort to learn whether the language has changed, materially during several generations. j
