Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 13, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Doctor Studies Rope Rhymes Bv M A. Bartholomew STORRS. Conn. (AP) - Tho next time you see a youngster jumping rope and reciting seemingly innocent rhymes, listen carefully The child may he telling you more than you think “You can tell a great deal about the psychology of children from rope rhymes and about the culture of nations," said Francelia Butler, a University of Connecticut Knglish professor who specializes in children’s literature Dr Butler, who has collected more than 2.IMH) rhymes from her travels throughout the world, left Sunday armed with a dozen jump ropes for a six-week Asian tour With the help of an interpreter, she says she will visit villages in Southeast Asia. India and Japan, giving children jump ropes and collecting their rhymes Dr Butler said most of the rhymes are scraps of ballads dating back to Roman times, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance "The reason why they last is that there’s something haunting about them They are remembered emotions that have a universality about them because they deal with the problems of growing up and existing.“ she said Frustration A constant theme throughout many of the rhymes is the frustration young children experience with their families, especially younger brothers and sisters, Dr Butler said She gave the following example. “I haft a little brother, his name was Tiny Tim. I put him in the bathtub and taught him how to swim He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap; he died last night with a bubble in his throat.” Other rhymes popular with children reflect a rather matter of fact acceptance of death. “Mother. Mother, I am ill; call for the doctor over the hill. Doctor, doctor I will die. Yes. my dear, but do no cry.” “Children don’t like to be children.” Dr Butler daid. “They want to bt* like adults. In their fantasy world, they can work out various family and life situations they become involved in And rope skipping is a rehearsal for life.” AP Aireohoto Dr. Francelia Butler, a University of Connecticut English professor, has collected over 2,000 lump rope rhymes from around the world She says the rhymes actually deal with the problems children face while growing up Dr. Butler left Sunday for a six week Asian tour to study more jump roping rhymes Ellis Park Medalist for the weekend event played Sunday at Fills park golf course was Mrs Arlen Blank Flight winners were Mrs Max Miller and Mrs Charles Burta, first, and Mrs Forrest Ainsworth and Mrs Fd Smith, second Mrs. Richard Norton had a birdie and a prize was awarded to Mrs Buss Braies Enrico Fermi 's Nuclear Research Unknown to Wife CHICAGO (AIM - Mrs. Enrico Fermi had known for some time that she would Im* the honored guest at Monday’s ceremony in which the National Accelerator laboratory is renamed after her husband But because of wartime secrecy she did not know for 2V£ years that her husband was the leader in nuclear research that ushered in the atomic age.

Socialist leader Pietro N'enni warned that repeal of the divorce law would "upset present political relationships," a clear threat to take the Socialists out of the government. But a vote for retention of the law could subject Rumor to pressure from conservative Catholics to break with the leftists In the th rn* years since Italy got its first divorce law. fewer than KH),(HH) couples have filed suit to have their marriages severed, and about 7(I,IMMI divorces have been granted Grounds include a five-year legal separation, sentencing of a spouse to prison for more than 15 years and conviction of a sex crime or of murder of a member of the family “Modernize Society” Among the voters Sunday were Luciano Gherardi, a 28-year-old office worker, and his bride Mirella Montechiari. They went from the altar to the polling station—and both voted for divorce “We want to modernize society,” said Luciano. “We don’t want to go into reverse." “I’m voting against divorce,” said night watchman Pino Gunella, who was accompanied by his wife, Giuseppina. “When I want to divorce her, I II take her home and kill her That’s how we do it hero " Giuseppina. a squat, mustached woman with curlers showing through a pink hair net, laughed. “I d divorce you tomorrow if I thought anyone els*1 would have me,” she said. "But they won t so I don’t want divorce." The Rev. Giovanni Franzoni, Italy’s most controversial priest, who has clashed many times with the hierarchy, challenged an order from his superiors to stop campaigning in favor of the divorce law. Church authorities banned him from saying Mass and administering sacraments. Thousands of priests and laymen voiced support for him They claim that though they are against divorce as Catholics, they cannot stop others from having it. Jean Anne Roe, T. R.
