To the Editor of the Dispatch: /•
Please: publish in your i.next issue the
proper pronounciation of the name of the
man who shot the President. ;
Swansonyille, Va. ; Dr. W. *T.
The name is spelled Leon Czolgosz, but
as to its proper pronunciation there are
several varying views. Many contend
that the proper pronunciation; is as if
the word were: spelled Tsolgotz— with the
"t" slightly sounded, and the "o" as in
folly.: The name is Polish. V ......
Others say the name is pronounced
Shawl-gosh and; Shollgosh. The sz of ■ the
final syllable has somewhat the sound of
Vsh," but the exact pronunciation is a
sound difficult for the English tongue to
accurately/reproduce.-. '. : .
