(Daily Facts photo) Child's own rules help shape his early speech BERKELEY - Contrary to what many parents think, a child who is learning to talk does not seem to develop a pattern of speech solely by imitating adults, a psychologist at the University of California re ported recently. Apparently, in the early de velopment of speech from age two to three, a child un consciously shapes a set of "rules" all his own about gram niaUcal construction. A child's "parrot - like imitation of adults" might be important in learning vocabulary, phrases and sound patterns, said Dr. Susan Ervin. But in learning verb tenses, plurals of words and sentence structure, she explained, he is seemingly more independent. In fact, she noted, he may cling to his personal set of "rules" for months in spite of what adults repeat in front of him day after day. Dr. Ervin is an assistant research psychologist at Berkeley and a specialist in the psychology of language. She based her remarks on part of a three- year study at U.C. Collaborat' ing in the research was Dr. Wick Miller, former assistant research linguist at Berkeley, and now assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Utah. In the study, several children were observed for about 18 months starting at the age of two. Some of the children were observed up to four years of age to see what changes took place in specific grammatical features of their speech. Data covering this later period are still being analyzed. A child may have a built-in tendency to organize sentences in a manner that is personally his own. Dr. Ervin said. For example, children that are observed seem to anal>-ze, or "decode," what an adult says by using their personal set of "rules" and they make their replies in the same way. How this tendency develops is still unknown. "It is as though children unconsciously construct hypotheses about grammar from the stressed words they hear from adults," Dr. Ervin remarked. Baric that Is! Beetles attack those famous Torrey Pines SAN DIEGO (UPI)-Methods were sought today to control a bark beetle that threatens the grove of rare Torrey Pines weakened by unfavorable weather conditions. A Torrey Pines State Park official reported that some 20 trees of the 2,000-lree grove in the Indians attack patrol in Peru LIMA, Peru (UPI) — Savage Cuquima Indians, said to be armed with poisoned arrows, are harrjing a surrounded army patrol in the jungles of Eastern Peru, it was reported today. The newspaper Coreo, quoting a seaplane pilot who said he flew over the beleaguered patrol, said the soldiers indicated by signs that the Indians had launched three new attacks during the day. park and adjacent Del Mar have died and others have been damaged severely because of the Scolytid Bark beetle. The beetle — about the size of an ant—damages trees by eat ing into the underbark fiber of tender branches. Park supcr\'isor Floyd Lemley said the only known control method is to cut down infested trees and bum the bark. "We can't do that here, or at least we hope we don't have to, as this is a comparatively small grove—about 2,000 trees in the park proper — and our prime purpose is to save them," Lemley said. The tree is native only to the park area and Santa Rosa Island off the California Coast. Geo. Skouras dies NEW YORK (UPD-George P.
