Twenty Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Sputnik Brings On 'Gagniks' By DOC QUIGG United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK (UP)—What this country needs is a cessation of gags_ having to do with a play on tne popular word for the first man-made earth satellites. Orbiting about our heads like flippant gadflies are Sputnik, Muttnik, Spudnik, and, of course, for the Christmas season, a Saint- nik. Cornball "Uttniks" In the interests of killing off this insidious thing once and for all, let us compile .a little list of cornball "uttniks" and maybe, •under its impetus, we can whoosh the whole fad into the cold limbo of outer space. All right, blast off- Wee home for space living Hutnik. Satellite containing a goat: Buttnik. "Satellite that ascends slowly, feebly, as if tapped across a green by a golfer; Puttnik. American satellite answer to [only open a whole new freshet of! Soviet claims:-Rebutnik. '_ icocktail-time orbiting corn: Hoot-! First satellite mental institu- •tion: Nutnik. What the present; early models will be called when the' big, new planet - travel supermodels csme along: Putt-Puttnik. Satellite which is one too many for traffic: Glutnik. Satellite office for scandal sheet: Srnutnik; And if you want to get a bit off the rhyme, a. satellite which fails to work is, obviously, a I>ud- nik; and the cow that jumps'over the moon will probably do it in a —heaven forfend—Cudnik. Oh, No. Not Again In an admonishing letter to the New York Times, a learned professor tells us we're way off course in pronouncing the "u" in "Sputnik" as if it were the "u" in "but." The way the Russians pronounce it, he says, is approximately as the "oo" in "hoot." niks, Rootniks, Tootniks, bet your Bootniks, do your Dootniks, juvenile delinquents in Z o o t n i k s, atom-warhead Shootniks. The professor gives as the correct (Russian) pronunciation, to which we should conform, approximately this: "spoot-nyeek." To any such, I'm forced to send up an emphatic Tutt-Tuttni'ic. What we speak is the American language, and its mother tongue is English—and I'm willing to follow the speech lead of Sir Winston in keeping it strictly Churchill English. During the Second World War, when we were all told that the correct way to pronounce Nazi was "not-si," did Churchill succumb? Of course not. In his speeches he called it "Na-a-a-zi" with a resounding gusto. But as for those awful jokes, Girard Gels Demotion By U, 5.
