The moon is approaching its ull phase The morning stars are Venus, Jars and Jupiter The evening stars are Jupiter and Saturn On this day in history: In 1883, the U.

Lewis was elected president of Congress of Industrial Organizations. On The Lighter Side United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The third edition of Webster's International Unabridged Dictionary has been a source of controversy ever since it was published in 1961. Some critics contend that the old second edition was a better work of lexicography, ond I'm inclined to agree. I base my opinion on a comparison I made the other day when I looked up the definition of "punkah wallah." The second edition defines "punkah wallay" as follows: . 'A coolie who operates a punkah, usually hy pulling a rope attached. to the punkah and leading over a pulley through the wall to the veranda, where the punkah wallah sits." Vivid Word Picture Is that not a splendid definition? It not only tells us what punkah wallah is, it gives us a vivid word picture of a punkah wallah in action. Now compare that, if you please, with the third edition, which' defines punkah wallah as the operator of a punkah." That's all it says. Just "the operator of a punkah." Nothing about -coolies, ropes, pulleys, verandas or holes in the wall. In fact, if we didn't know what punkah was, the third edition's defintion of punkah wal­ lah would be virtually meaningless. Fortunately, both editions provide fairly lucid definitions of punkah. They agree that it is a device for fanning a room, consisting of f r a m e covered with canvas and suspended from the ceiling or of a large fan held in the hand. Both Display Weakness But in defining wallait, ^ both editions display weakness. 1 The second edition says wal­ lah is an "agent; a master or owner; a servant or worker.-" That seems to fit the third edition's definition of punkah wal­ lah as "the operator of a punk­ ah The third edition defines wal­ lah as: "1. A persons who is associated with a ' particular type of work or who performs a specific duty or service. 2. A persons who holds an important position in an organization or in a particular situation. That seems to fit* the second edition's definition ; of a punkah wallah. Certainly amy coolie who sits on the veranda pulling In 19J50, the 'U. S. ; Navy patrolled the Carribean to guard, „ . , . . , „ against a Cuban invasion, rope that leads through the wall Central America. | ov « a Pulley tc, the punkah holds an important position, rn a particular situation. If, there, Webster would combine the second'edition's definition of punkah /wallah with the third edition's -. definitions of punkah and wallah, / it would have, in my opinion, a much better dictionary.
