Each piotograpb represented a sound. For inatanoe, • drawing of a bee would stand for the sound "bee" aa In the word "before." A people called fee Selrltes who lived nearly 4,000 years ago are believed to nave been the first to develop symbols from the pl6togr«pbs. They may be called the Inventors of the alphabet. Later toe Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans •improved on the Selrite system. The drawing above shows the development of the letters "A" and "B." The letter "A" began as the head of an ox in the Egyptian piotographa and progressed through Selrlte, Phoenician and Greek symbols to the modern letter. The letter "B" started as a piotograpb for house. The Greeks gave the name to the alphabet. Their letters "A" and "B" are called "alpha" tad "bet*." * * * FOR YOU TO DOt At first, the Boman alphabet which we u*e had only capital lettere. gee if you can find out how the lower oaM, or small, letters were developed from the capitals. * * • (Judl Muenob of Pasoo, Wash., wins $10 for this question, tend your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higglns, A?
