He pledged to continue workr/g , Vfor peace by seeking to strengthen international agencies such as tlit» United Nations. He also said he would persist in negotiations with the Soviets for agreements which "may help to open up, with soine promise, the issues of international disarmament" The United Stales and Britain are negotiating at Geneva with the Soviet Union for a ban on nuclear weapons testing, ^, In words clearly relating to that •and any other negotiations with the Soviets, Eisenhower said: "We can have no confidence in any treaty to which Communists lire a party except where such a treaty provides within itself for self-etiT. forcing mechanisms/' The-President related the who]'- 1 Uniled States military effort to the task of achieving peace.

Through an interpreter, Mlkoyun predicted at a meeting' of more than 200 lawyers al the Law Club of Chicago that Mololov, ousted us foreign minister In 1057, may get ft more responsible ambassador post. But Mikoyan sold Mololov •Will not be In a policy making position. The gladhancling Mikoyan also described the late, feared Lavrenty Berla "as an' adventurer, tin 'intriguer, a man without principles of any sort.' Mlkoyan's talk climaxed a busy .sightseeing day in Chicago, which •Included the premiere performance of the Bcryozka Russian dance company in the Civic Opera House. Alluding to Mololov's future, Mi- koyan told the lawyers: "We have full confidence in him KS an ambassador because no issues of reform will come up In any country where he Is representing us." ; Mololov's trouble, Mikoyan said, was that he was a conservative-. He lost out in the battle with the reformers, he indicated. But then Mikoyan said: "I respect him (Molotov) very much." Asked about Bci'ia, Mikoyan said: "1 know Beria well. I did not respect him. He was an adventurer, a capable man but an intriguer, a man without principles of any sort. You might pall him a business man in politics.

L. D. A grcnt many arc more apt to recognize it .as "Webster's Old Blue-Back .Speller," -because that name is more frequently used. It is hard to realix.e that thi,-, gem at' n book so familiar lo so many and copyrighted In 1880' was a revised edition of an "earlier Webster Spelling 'Book. Bui uipon Qxamlntnig it, it is NOT hard to realize why children and adults who ; usecl the ibook were, as a whole,,.l}e,tter,,j»pellors than those of today.'A. 'wdKd .journey-through this little land of 'learning shows quite clearly how syllable repetition and word association were used'.to their best, advantage in leaching the speller. The student was given an analysis o'f sounds, a key lo tho pro- ngncialion of (both vowels -and cnn- sonenls, and visual instruction in writing the entire alphabet. Fan- lunl information was used to illus- Iralo the meaning of words. This covered a wide -range — from geo- .graiphical facts to the components of copper. Therefore, some things were learned inaclverlenlly. There were 150 lessons which •began with instruction in spelling one syllable words and ended with spelling "hum-dinge-rs" like "mosquito," "obedeisance,' and "silhouette," The last page of my copy of this ibook is torn, but 1 feel reasonably sure the "hard word" group included my personal ,pet problem — "spaghetti." Spelling was mado easier because words with the same sounds and Similar spelling were grouped together such as "streak, squeak, and screak." Because of its similarity in' sound, "shriek" was also included in that list. Each word was divided into syLUrbles, given the proper .accent, and its diacritical marks were shown. The Student of "Blue-Back Speller" Days was expected to know these •three things as well as how lo spell and to define the words. Arabic and Roman numerals were both used for each lesson, so the studenl knew how to count both ways to 150, al least. The book concluded with seven fables, all of which had good morals. Additional information was found concerning homonyms, forming plurals, adding "ing," and words of irregular orthography (lhat word sent me quickly to another of Mr. Webster's books).
