' ' ' late co&id lot it ly FRANK COLBY WORDS TO WATCH The word "preparatory"' is rather widely mispronounced "FREP-ruh-taw-ree." When the word is properly pronounced, the accents fall on second and fourth syllables, thus: pre-PAR-uh-TOE-ree. (The "A" of the second syllable is flat as in "carrot, parrot." Q. Why does the word "wrestle" start with "w," and why do so many people mispronounce ' the word as if it were spelled "ras-ael" ? D. A. The "w" survives from the Anglo-Saxon form "wraestlian," which became the Middle .English word "wrestlen," which later dropped the "n" and became "wrastle." (Note. There is no word in English beginning with "wr-" in which the "w" is sounded.) The pronunciation "rassel" was proper when the spelling "wrastle" was current. Chaucer wrote, "The wrastling for this worlde axeth a fal." But the spelling with "e" wrestle has been the correct form for about 300 years, and the pronunciation "Tassel" is now dialectal. Be sure to rhyme wrestle with "vessel," thus: ress'l. Watch the word gherkin, a kind of small cucumber used for pickling. Do not say "JUR-kin." In English, all words beginning with "gh-" are pronounced with the hard "g," as in ghastly, ghost, ghoul. Therefore, gherkin has the hard "g" sound, thus: GUR-kin. Also watch the third syllable of "mercantile." Not MER-k'n-teel." A careful check of all the accepted dictionaries in my library fails to disclose any sanction for the "teel" sound. The British pronounce it "tile" to rhyme with "file." But in America, best usage is "till" to rhyme with "fill, hill," thus: MER-k'n-till. Just out, 1947 PRONUNCIATION TEST. Test your pronouncing I.

All Pass North should have bid four spades instead of passing to three no-trump. As a general rule, it is easier to make game in a long and strong major suit than at no-trump. In some hands this is a fairly close point, bocause sometimes it is easier to make nine tricks than 10 no matter whether the long suit is a major or a minor. However, the major suit should bb preferre d especially when it is coupled with unbalanced distribution and the best results will be obtained in the long run. As it turned out, the contract of three no-trump would have been fulfilled but for the fact that East happened to be a fine player and very much on his toes. West opened the seven of diamonds, and East restrained the impulse to finesse his nine-spot, ordinarily the best play. It was clear to him that five of dummy's spades could be brought in as tricks. It was clear also that West had led the top card of a worthless diamond ho'ding, so that South was marked with the king. A routine diamond play by East would allow South to win the first trick, set up the spades, and make his game if he had three fast tricks in clubs. The only chance to set the game was to play on the assumption that West had a heart holding strong enough to win three tricks. East, therefore, acted at once by taking the ace of diamonds and leading the ten of hearts. West carefully ducked when South played the queen. East later gained the lead with the queen of spades and led another heart, permitting his partner to take three heart tricks to set the contract.

Barelegged Paulette Goddard shivered outside the theater where "The Importance of Being Earnest" had opened. The dame hates stockings. I quizzed her and later her husband, Burgess Meredith, an Ohio boy who made good about John Steinbeck's play they'll do in Dublin starting July 10. "It's a secret." he said. "We may all be arrested." "It's political?" "Maybe." I asked what parts they'd have. "Until I got into town and saw Steinbeck today, Paulette had the best part. I'm glad to announce that I now have the best. "Tomorrow," he added, sadly, "Paulette sees Steinbeck." i(t Me QUIPPING SERVICE Fred Allen remarked, "Does that Monte Prosser have imagination! I saw him STAGGERING out of Longchamps!" . . . Eddie Hanley says of suave radio announcer Frank Gallop (not to be confused with Ted Husing), "He's the only announcer who sounds like he's wearing spats." STUBBLETALK After writing about "Shadow Proof" which covers the 5 o'clock shadow I learned of a windup razor, sold at Gimbel's and elsewhere, which massages you while you shave. Peter Donald isn't buy ing one as he has a barber who has the shakes. Donald is turning down television offers now, despite promises he'll get in "on the ground floor." "There's a difference," he says, "between being in on the ground floor and being the ground floor." WITTICIZING Banker J. F. McDermott of Omaha, the Middle West Wit, recently told an audience he was noted only for one thing. Most families go from shirt sleeves to shirt sleeves in three generations. "We," he said, "made it in two." IKEOLOGY Probably a tactful general wouldn't have won the war. Gen. Eisenhower, after the White House correspondents' dinner the other night, said to Dinah Shore, "They tell me you were temperamental tonight, but " Dinah was stunned. She almost got hurt all over again for not being permitted to go to the dinner) itself (there s a no-women rule). She had good-naturedly accepted the rule, and now . . . Well, a smooth tactful guy wouldn't have mentioned it. but again, maybe such a guy wouldn't have been a crack army chief. Ike, by the way, - came into a room where all the- performers were quietly assembled, and said, "What's everybody quiet about? Seeing President Truman shak ing hands, he said, "Oh, he's here!" BERLESTOWX Mrs. Milton Berle (lovely blond Joyce Mathews) hopes to appear on her husband's new radio program playing the part of Mrs. Berle. She is getting competition from radio actress Shirley Mitchell in tryouts because it's the old. old story somebody wonders if Mrs. Berle is the type to play Mrs. Berle! 3f THE MIDNIGHT EARL . . . GLAMMER: Olga San Juan, at the Copa catching Tony Martin, said she will marry Bob Moon, a CBS announcer on the coast . . . "Arch of Triumph" producer David Lewis got a letter from Barbara Stanwyck in France saying she was freezing in a mink coat and writing by candlelight. MUCH ADO: Guy Lombardo, delayed in Miami, where he went to appear in a powerboat regatta, missed his first radio program in years . . . Lyle Wilson. Washing ton UP chief, reportedly rejected! Byron Price's Hollywood job . . . I Real estate men predict OPA rent' ceilings will be off by June 30. PATTER: Brian Donlevy wrote Boyd (Vanity Fair) Raeburn from Mexico he'll be in town for St. Patrick's Day. YAK: Over at Arthur Maisel's Hani n Eggs the boys were telling an actor bachelor he oughta get married. A woman would adore, inspire and flatter him all the time. "Oh," said the ham, glancing at his nails, "I do all that by myself." . . . That's earl, brother.
