Summary
  • NOTES ON IDO. (By V. J. Costigan, 136 Elswick-street, Leichhardt, hardt, Sydney.) Monsieur Turcat, director of the Turcat Mery Automobile Co., Marseilles (which corresponds in Ido), writes. “When I examined Esperanto several years ago, I immediately cast it aside as being useless for commercial purposes. After studying Ido, I am convinced that it is admirably ably suited to the needs of international commerce, merce, and have given it my definite adherence.” Lord Northcliffe, in a letter to the Marquis de Beaufront, says: “I* am pleased to assist your work in propagating Ido by giving the new international ternational language publicity in my newspapers, papers, “Believing Ido to be a practical auxiliary tongue, and a valuable time-saver to nations adopting it, I trust you will realise your ideal that it may further a still closer entente between the British Empire and France, and indeed between tween the Allies generally.” M. Wavrinsky, president of the International 'Order of Good Templars, and a member of the Swedish Parliament, writes: “Having to choose between stagnation and progress, and always preferring free but rigorous development, I adhere here to Ido, and no one could make me return to Esperanto. ... I am an Idist, and intend to remain one.” Professor Meillet, of the College de France, in his excellent book, “Les Langues dans I’Burope nouvelle,” makes many favorable references to Ido. As a result of a meeting convened by the Mayor of Stockholm, who is also a member of the Swedish Parliament and an Idist, a committee mittee of representative citizens has been elected for the purpose of bringing the question of the adoption of an international language before the authorities, and causing it to be taught in the schools. Nearly all the members of the Luxemburgian Parliament are Idists, and the Parliaments of Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Hungary also contain a number of adherents of the language. Many Idists are not aware that Professor Couturat, the versatile editor of the official Idist organ, “Progreso,” was killed on the third day of the war. The death of this eminent French philosopher, who was incontestibly the greatest authority on the question of an international language, represents an irreparable loss to the Ido movement. Quite recently death has deprived prived Ido of two of its most fervent pioneers, namely, Professor Dr. L. Pflaundler (a wellknown known scientist) and General Ljustina. All the foreign correspondence in connection with the Exhibition of School Manual Work, held in Rotterdam in August, was carried on in Ido. Many valuable exhibits were thus obtained tained from other countries, as well as the attendance tendance of several foreign professors. Like most Esperantist claims, report that the Soviet Republic had adopted the ajojuj language has turned out to be false. The Red Cross Society of Brussels has officially informed a section of Belgian Idists that no such decision has appeared in the “Pravda” as stated by the Esperantists. The Ido Academy has been reorganised in less than two months, and three new members elected ed to replace the three members who died during ing the war. The academy will now continue the selection of new scientific terms. Of new books which have appeared in Ido recently, two are particularly interesting. The first is a translation of a series of articles by the greatest living Swedish author and poet, Verner von Heidenstam, and is entitled “Social Reflections of a Free-thinker.” The other a biography of Jan Hus, the great Csech reformer. former. of whom it is said that he died for the cause for which Luther only lived. The first version of this book appeared in Esperanto, but the author becoming aware of the defects of that language, has re-cast the present edition in Ido. Speaking of Esperantists, it may be advisable able to come nearer home. Over half the Australian tralian Idists are Ex-Esperantists, many of whom were adherents of long standing, and more competent than some of it£ present-day defenders, and include Mr. Carryer (Esperanto Consul at Hobart), Mr. Atkinson of Hobart (who attended several Esperantist Congresses), and Mr. Johanson of Adelaide, who travelled all the way to France to attend an Esperanto Congress, gress, but is now methodically forgetting that language.
