BABY'S FIRST WORD.
Joliet, 111., July 1. The cold
eye of science has been turned up
on baby's first word to cast con-
tempt on mamma's pride in that
inarticulate bleat The jugger
naut of precise knowledge has
steam-rollered baby's first word. -
It develops that baby doesn't r
really say "mamma" at all when
the word goes forth to all the sis
ters and cousins and aunts that'
baby has begun to talk.
What baby does is to make the -t
only sound he can at that stage of I
the game. He squawks the onlyi
kind' of a squawk he can intorte?
with the untrained thrbat nature,
has given him. And the squawk
sounds to favorably prejudiced
ears something like "mamma."
This, according to Prof. T. tS.i
Lowden of Ohio State University, -who
knocked the props out from
under maternal pride in a lecture
He declared that the so-called i
"words" that baby is credited?
with in the goo-goo stage are not
words at all, but just trial noises, i
that the infant's throat is so
shaped naturally that it simply 4
must begin trying out its vocal
organs with something like "ma"
or'pa." ,SH t
' Well, Oscar W. Underwood '
got by without anyone finding
out what the "W" stands for.
But we know what it does NOT
'stand for. "
It isn't Winnel.
