The address of Tuesday evening will be one of jthe most informative yet presented, at these monthly sessions. "Some of the most, vexatious problems with whjch the Realty Board ls asked to -deal arise because realtors are not familiar with these phases of law which govern relations of landlord and tenant."

UNCLE RAY'S CORNER A LITTLE SUNDAY TALK T AST Saturday I spoke of French, Li Latin and Anglo-Saxon words in the English language. Words from those languages make up' more than 90 per cent of the words we use. We have many words, however, which came from other languages. For example, the Indians of North and South America gave us some words. These include: moose, op-possum, raccoon, chipmunk, wood-chuck, squash, succotash, moccasin, canoe, hammock and toboggan. From the Indians we also obtained a great number of names of rivers, lakes, cities, provinces of Canada and states of the United States. Indian names include Ontario, Manitoba, Minnesota, Wyoming, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Kansas and Utah. The Missouri and the Mississippi rivers were1 named by natives of our continent. . Ireland and Scotland gave me 5nlish language certain words. From the Irish we have blarney, grumpy, "spuds," brogue, shamrock, bog, and others. s Many words came from Danes and other Norsemen who attacked the coasts of Great Britain a thousand years ago; Many Norse folk settled down to live on the island.. and among the word they gave n are: window, law, knife, skin, kettle, gate, call, take, hit and scare. Ever so many English words are like those in the German language. Most of these came from the Anglft-Saxorjs, who were of German stock, but some have come direct from German. These include pretzel, frankfurter and delicatessen. The Dutch gave ug words about ships and harbors, such as deck: and boom. We also obtained from them these words: cookie, cruller,, waffle, cold-slaw and boss, not ta speak of the important Christmas name, "Santa Claus." Other words came from Asia. The Chinese gave us the word "tea," and from brown folk of the , Malay region we obtained such I words as "gingham" and "ketchup." We might go ofrto tell of words from still other countries, but we have said enough to show that our language has grown from words given by people of many lands. All told, there are about half a million words in the English language. Our language ' keeps growing as time goes on. opyriht, IBM, for 'The Tribune) xy . :;" ; 'y - COUPON FOR "STAMPS AND STAMP COLLECTING" Uncle Ray, -.:'' .. . Care of The Tribune, !
