W.YTHKVILLR, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS OFFERS 1 Europe Considers Them a Fair Exchange PAGE THBEE AH General Ideas Mav Be Expressed in 850 Common Words. EDITOR'S NOTE: "Basic English" has leaped Into prominence In this country since Commissar l.itvlnov used it in n trnns-Atkinlic telephone with his wife. It's a "language" consisting' of root words—about 850—of (he complex English tongue. It's designed ns a sort of easy medium of convcrsa- lion for all nationalities. So popular lias the study of linsic English become In Washington that Ihe Congressional Library, cannot incei demands for reference works. Just to give the "jnan-in-the-sli-ect" an idea of what tlie new lan»uage is all about, here's a story, about basic English written in basic En«- lish. BY FREDERICK C. OTIIMAN United l'rfs= Staff (,'orri-simndiMit WASHINGTON, n. C. <LU>> — The wrii.i'ig of this s'.orv is in basic English, the new language of 850 words, which has the nwroval of msnv leaders in educaiion. If It sounds clumsy in the writing, that is becrnise of the scarcllv of vords in Ihe language. Bnsic F'i'jii'h uses mnnv words to tell Ihe s<irae idea that old languages tell iti one word. Prof. C. K. Ouden of London is the inventor of the laii'iunge. He is of the belief that it will be in use soon in all countries of the earth. Mnie, Maxim Litvinov. the wo- nwin ihe Fxiviet commifar is married to, is in aonroval of the language. II. G. Wells, the BritiMi Klory teller, is in approval. Many oth«r leading men arc in approval. Thev arc in the belief that basic English will help unite the earth aii'l keen its nations out of \var. The ]nn°na<!e is simple. Ii is put together of six kinds of words: Operators, natural substances, necessary names, common things, collectives, and qualifiers. Operators nre words like come D ct. give, keep, let. make, put, and be. Natural substances are word' like, air, blood, butter, chalk, coa cot-tier, rork and cotton. Necessary names are words like act, addition, adiuslment, agrcc- m»it, amount and nnimnl. Common things are words like ( ai)Ble. arch, arm, baby, bag, ball unrt basket. Collectives are words like approval, behaviour, brass, bread, eare. Hothc and comfort. •] Qualifiers arc words like able, anpry. n-.v.ike. black, boilin'i. bright and broken. The language k to tell general ideas. II is not to tnll specific thincs mid . e o hn.s to be used to describe foods (for instance) in this way: A white root that makes the eyes water (oninn.) A green plant food with a round heart (cabbage.) A sweet red root, used ns food • (beet.) A green-yellow berry with hair on the skin f gooseberry.) A cake rolled thin and cooked two times (cracker.) The language is lacking in grace. It is easy to learn Prof. Ogden. Mme. Litvinov, Wells and •• who think the same way nr" of (lie belief thnt its lack of grace is rot so important as its ease of learning and that it is useful now to the earth. In a few years they are of tbe belief that is will bo more useful.

New Ford V-8 for 1934 •i • . • " ' Greater poiver at still lower cost through new Dual Carbnretion . . . Increased motoring comfort because of simplified Clear-vision Ventilation . .,. Easier riding through more flexible springs, deeper seat cushions and softer cushion springs . . . Distinctive new appearance ... Many other features New Mead 1 Mora Miles Per Gjiion-More Power, • Speed and Efficiency with Dual Carburettor)—Greater Oil Economy The performance and economy of the 1933 Ford V-8>ave been the talk of thousands of motorists. .Owners said: "Leave it alone, don't change it." Dealers said: "Impossible to improve it!" But we have improved it — in every direction. We started with the engine. The Ford V-8 for 1934 is more powerful, more efficient, easier to start in cold weather, yet it is the most economical Ford to operate ever built — largely ' because of the new Dual Carburetor and Dual Intake Manifold. Even in the coldest weather the V-8 engine warms up quickly and maintains an efficient operating temperature because of new thermostats in the waterlinc. Added engine refinements — get tlie details about all of them from the nearest Ford dealer.— reduce oil consump. tion and further reduce operating and maintenance costs. O Clear-vision Ventilation— ^ and the Windshield Opens There's nothing to obstruct the view in the new Ford system of Clear-vision Put'It to the Test Ride in this New Ford V-8 for 1934 and tint] cut — personally — what it csn do. h h rhe one sure Kay to find nut which C3r givei you the tnujt fur your money. Ventilation. It's built-in — simplicity itself. The same handle that raises the window glass also slides it back horizontally to the ventilating position, and then the forward motion of the car draws the air out of the body. Drafts are eliminated, passenger .comfort is assured, and windshield will not fog in cold weather. Another interesting feature of the Ford system — the windshield can be opened! This, and the cowl ventilator, provide tlie additional air needed for hot-weather comfort. 9 Greater Beauty-New Radiator Shell ** and Grille—Fender* in Color A car to be proud of, the Ford V-8 for 1934 has newly designed chromium- plated radiator shell and grille, and other distinctive features. Interiors are more attractive, with new tufted upholstery, new mout4mg£"nc>v'cbve- type headlining, new instrument panel, new arm rests smd new !u rdware. Swivel- type sun visors in De Luxe-bodies prevent glare from front or side. Fenders on all De Luxe cars are in color to harmonize with body colon. New enamel finish on all bodies and fenders has greater wearing quality and more enduring luster. A Transverse Springs—Comfort with ^ Stability and Safety Ford transverse spring* provide the utmost stability and safety. Placed crosswise, they tend to prevent the body from tilting on uneven roads, and turns " can be taken safely at relatively high speeds. Free and easy action of all four wheels is permitted because the outer flexible tips of the springs are attached to the axles. Thus the most sensitive, parts of the springs receive road shocks first and absorb them before they reach the body. The advantages of the solid axle arc retained. PRICED AS LOW AS $515 i'.
