My Dear Missr Brooks: I am very interested in Our Corner and would like to have you answer a few questions, please. How many times has Mary Pickford been married, and who did she marry? (2) What happened to Fatty Arbuckle? (3) What is a good way for a girl or boy to earn money to go to school with? S ENGLISH to become the Universal Language? Many people think so. Volapuk, an artificial language, Intended for International use, has had its trial -- and has failed. It was Invented In 1879 by Sclileyer of Baden. Its roots were borrowed from the Romanic, Germanic and English languages, and the orthography was strictly phonetic. It had some vogue up to the 90s. Esperanto, another artificial international language, Is still a going concern. It was announced in 1887 in a brochure by Dr. L. I Zamenhof of AVarsaw. It has been introduced as an International auxiliary language in commerce, in science, in travel, in international conventions, in schools and in literature. It is constructed 'from elements largely common to the 'Aryan tongues. Its grammar is absolutely regular. The pronunciation and orthography are simple and phonetic. iEsperanto seems to be making progress. Twelve foreign governments were officially represented at the sixth International Esperanto congress In "Washington. More than 100 periodicals in Esperanto are now being published. French, until recent years, has been .the language of diplomacy? Is English crowding It out? It appears so. The house of representatives the other day was considering a Joint resolution approving the holding of an exposition in Philadelphia as an appropriate celebration of the one hundred :and fiftieth anniversary In 1926 of the Declaration of Independence. Representative Simeon D. Fess of Ohio, In 'discussing the resolution, had some Interesting things to say concerning the growth of English as a He made these points, among others: The remarkable fact Is the growth of the English language since the Declaration of Independence, especially Where compared with other languages. e There are more than 150,000,000 throughout the world who are y speaking the English language, ilt is heard in every civilized country In the world, Including the Islands of the sea. It is difficult to accurately state the numbed with any degree of exactness. One of the most remarkable observations to be made is in the Orient, where in various centers you cannot only hear the English language spoken today, but you can read publications printed in English for perusal by the Inhabitants, some of whom do not read the ancient language of their native country, while many of the educated natives have learned to both read and speak Engworld-languag- e. peo-!pl- to-da- lish. The time Is already here when English has not only become the commercial language of the world, but it is rapidly becoming the diplomatic language, and will continue to be more eo as the days come and go. The growth of this language is one of .the most phenomenal things, not only to the history of ethnology, but In the history of civilization. An ethnological map of the World Will show English as the vernacular language in the British isles, in all North 'America, Australia, New Zea , Wealth of the Nations ft j An interesting study is to note the irious methods in which men of dif-ire- nationalities carry their wordly ealth. The Englishman usually, cares silver and. copper all loose in his ousers pocket, pulls out a haDdful of le mixture and selects the coin he ieds. Flie American carries his wad bills In a long narrow pocket-boowhidh the greenbacks lie flat. The rcuchman makes use of a leather k, i land and Southern Africa. It is the leading foreign language, or what might be styled as the second language in western Europe outside of the British Isles, Mexico, southern South America, portions of south and eastern Africa, and the oriental countries, including China and Japan. .It Is spoken to some extent, but not as a second language, in Russia, the Near East countries, India, west coast of South America, and the islands of the sea. It has reached the Seven Seas of classical history. Its comparative growth compels admiration. Reports by scholars show that in 1900 there were from 150,000,000 to 160.000.- 000 people speaking English. A conservative statement made not long ago asserts that more than 150,000,000 people speak the English, 120,000,000 the German, 90,000,000 the Russian, 60.000.- 000 the French, 55,000,000 the Spanish, and 40,000,000 of each Italian and Portuguese. When considered in percentage of growth, the English has surpassed all other languages. If the rate of growth since the year 180G Is continued, it is estimated that by the end of the present century there will be 1,100,000,000 people speaking the language. In view of this expansion the question Is at once raised whether English Dr. Is to. become a world language. Brander Matthews, one of the best authorities on the subject, believes that a world language may be possible. He also believes that It will not be either the French or the German. AVith him most of the scholars of the day agree. The French has had Its chance and has failed. The German, although a very vigorous tongue, as shown by its growth, is not a contender for the place. The English more than doubles the French and Is far beyond the German ; its expansion In the last century is quite remarkable. It Is supported by two of the most energetic, determined, and enterprising nationalities of history nations best designed for linguistic growth. It possesses elements of growth not possessed by other languages. It is a combination of Romance and Teutonic tongues. These go to the people who speak rather than the language spoken. s are less tied to The the soil. Like the Hebrew, he Is more given to enterprise which seeks new lands. As a world trader his wares are found in every part of the Modern industrialism by aid world. of the agencies of communication are making the world but a neighborhood. The application of electricity permits the resident of Hongkong to read at his breakfast table the latest news of his American neighbors activities on the other side of the world, while both in common observe the doings of the balance of the world.
