THURSDAY, JUNK W, 19150 rAKK.v PAGE THRKB Soviet Confessions Expected As Stalin Lays Down Law ^arent Continues Prayers For Daughter in Coma By WILLIAM L. RVAN NFW YORK, June 22. (/1>J—Now that Prime Minister Stalin has laid down the law on Soviet lang- i Tiage policies, a parade of new con- tefesslons can be expected In Moscow. ^ Stalin spoke in Pravda oil Tuesday. Exactly what his words meant k i matter which is subject to broadly varying interpretations, but this appears obvious: he did lay waste, in no uncertain terras, the school of linguistics which long has ridden the crest of popularity in the Soviet Union. Nikolai Yakovlevtch Marr. the philologist hailed only recently as "Inspired Soviet scientist and founder of the new materialist teachings on language," was not only wrong in many of his conceptions, bu was un-Marxisl, said Stalin. Th Soviet leader thus entered—a n c probably ended—a long debate on ingulsties which has been going on or several months In Moscow. Parade of confessions If the Communists run true to orin, his will bring a parade .of confessions in the !orm of "Bolshevist criticism and self-crttlclsrn," rom persons like Academician I.

The first ominous portent Ilia things might go awry for the dominant school ol language study came a little more than a monil ago. Pravda, official Communis Party paper, published an articl criticizing the Marr adherents. T Western observers it looked Ilk the beginning of a shift in policy. Stalin's Writing Stalin made 11 official. He wrote n Pravdn th»t it was tiita Soviet philolog7 freed itself from he mistakes of Marr and liquidated the rule of his adherents. Marr's theory that different classes develop different languages was absurd, said Stalin; Marr's notion .hat language was merely a cultural superstructure which would change swiftly with revolution was simplj not true. Further, the prime minister deplored that the Marr Schoo' gave Soviet philology n regime under which scientists were demoted or fired for criticizing Marr's teachings. What does this portend? For one thing, it appears to mean that the imposition of Russian language or orthography upon subordinate peoples is not going so TUCSON, Ariz., June 22.
