SCHEDULE KGIX J300 WOI Amet pm Su am Tues English is becoming the No 1 tongue WORLD IS FILLED with a multiplicity of lan guages If we include identifi able dialects in the count the total would run into the thou sands India alone would have several hundred to include in the list Tiny little Togoland in West Africa has more than 40 Often a mountain range or a river is a dividing line for dialects Its almost compulsory to ob serve at this point that with such a Babel of tongues its no wonder that the world is having so much trouble arriving at a goal of peace and understand ing The wonder of it all is that things arent worse than they are Prompted by the obvious need for an auxiliary language if not a universal top language a Russian by the name of Dr L Zamenhof back in 1887 con maybe invented would be a better word a syn thetic language which he gave the euphonious name of Esper anto which is drawn from the Spanish word for hope Esper anza Esperanto is based on the commonest words to be found in the most important European languages Sounds peculiar to any particular language were avoided The spelling was whol ly phoneticand the or stress if you al ways placed on the next to the lastsyllable of words with three syllables or more Through the 85 years since that universal language was given to the world there has been an earnest and highly in telligent international organiza tion of volunteers working with all its might and main to pop ularize and spread Esperanto On an occasion or two in an editorial or a commentary have expressed some doub whether Esperanto had got past first base on this ambitious ob jective Each time defenders of the faith have seemed to rise up out of the soil on all hands to set me right In this chat with you I may make a number of other mis takes But believe me Im not going to say anything that by any stretch of the imagination could be interpreted as dis paraging the progress or the status of Esperanto that I dont know Esperanto and that I know of nobody else who does I am willing to con cede as a matter of staving off arguments is a reflection on me and the people with whom I associate With that explained I am ready to move on to my ncxt point which is that Eng on its own merits or by sheer is coming to fill the role once con ceived for Esperanto A writer in the National Geo graphic recently commented on this fact in what to me was a most interesting and inform ative article sHe began by pointing out that when Greek tourists Russian sailors and German businessmen haggle the merchants of Yoko hama the transactions are almost sure to be in English This was by way of introduc ing the somewhat sweeping generalization that no other language has served as great a variety of needs or come closer to the mythical goal of a world tongue It has become the language of civil aviation and half the worlds news papers and scientific journals are published in English The adaptable language it observed has even touched the

the Mason CityNorth Iowa Fair youth award trip were back in school Monday with enough stories about their threeday sojourn to keep their friends entertained for a month To realize the success of this years trip a person only had to listen to the youngsters as they sat around the lobby of the PickCongress Hotel Sun clay afternoon waiting for the start of their return home On the way to Chicago Thursday he conversation of the youths had dealt with things at schools farms or boy and girl friends These things were missing in the conversations of most of the youths as they prepared to go home Sunday the conversations dealt with the view from the top of the Prudential Building the 510000 bill they saw at the Federal Reserve Bank the ice review they attended at the Conrad Hilton Hotel etc Or in other words the con versations were about things the youths had done in Chi cago Not all the conversations were about pleasant memories of the Windy City In fact more than one conversation was interrupted by a groan as one of the youngsters remem bered paying for a loop movie or another who recalled paying for cold lobster at a fashionable restaurant These groans of unpleasant memories w c r c however more than drowned by the laughter provoked by memo ries of the most worthwhile and humorous events Sunday was the quiet day of the North lowans visit Most of the youngsters attended church in the morning and then packed talked or went sightseeing in the afternoon The Cerro Gordo County dele gation took in the Natural History Museum in the after noon Other county groups vis ited the
