Many language reforms In the direc tion or universal use have been sug gested. but none seems to have en tirely met the requirements. The latest arrival in this field is Basic English, originating with C. K. Ogden of Cam bridge University, England. This sug gestion reduces English to a code con taining only 850 words, yet so simple that an Intelligent native of another country can read It and write it in a month. The 850 words, all of them English, are adequate for all ordinary purposes, and this Is of interest to those wanting a single world-language and to foreigners bewildered by the complexity of English. Basic English is not designed to con vert the whole world to one tongue, but to establish everywhere an auxiliary language, for use where people of many lands gather and for world-wide organ isations. Esperanto, the best known of the international languages. Ik still to most people a name only. Ido, Volapuk. Novial and others are some times advocated. In theory they are good world languages, but not in prac tice. Basic English is already under stood by all who understand English, the most numerous of any group m language users, except the Chinese. - -- - Tb« CHEERFUL CHERUB I cent believe itV momintf TViet com* to cold I end soon TV»e world must meneCe aomekow IF I atiy in bed a tin noon* lT(r 1 l * , I Bv FOP MO^ANO I V j Discovered. i I i I suess i’ll “Take THE /_ I ONE ITr.EDOL FIRSTj ,'LU r„ A srRlp ot= IVJj* "SK -- I SomEThims IMSiDE if IT" y SEEMS A Little LooSE Joe Gets a New Lid. z Continued from yesterday. * I 5 [/TtELL MOU ^1-tVER, 'T<S *°~\1 Yr HE VJOULPNT EVEN ARGUE "X 1/ p0ft0 cuii - HF MEAN* X lY Tuc on op ruftP- MF S X “ BIGGEST MISTAKE TOu COULP \ * f ujitm ME- JUST SAT THERE \ !/ fOOR ®ILL HE MEANS \ f THE POOR CHAP- HES \ M^K€ - TM&rr P^E ‘S JUST AfJER. ) AMO HSTE>JEP TO AU» I SAt^ • !( \*J£LU~ SO SHE IS JUST v I B6.BM A CRSFPLE ALL KJS | i tour.
