Tke Bakersfleld Calif ornlan says:

seems that he made a proposal
'away back In 18CS that the word
"tfcon" be coined aa a pronoun at.

meaning 'that Me, be. she or It.""
This neoterlsa apparently complied
with neoteristlc canons, since It
supplied an antecedent blank.

Enthusiastic word reformers
' who believed in Converse and his
"thon" died of senile debility
while watching and waiting for
somebody with the courage to use

" coiner ot "thon" that even The
Bee. apparently, has never heard,
of that evanescent, mellifluous cre

ble "hlr." which sounds like "her"
In bifurcated guise, we reject It

Tha disapproval ot the Stockton

The Sacramento Bee steps bold-;
ly forth with tha announcement
that It has coined a new word and
v Intends to hold on to it'and'use It.
' The word is "hlr," and U Intended
to be used in place ot the awkward
' repetition of he or she when de
sirous of Including both sexes in a
remark. For instance, Instead of
saying, "Every applicant at the
marriage license bureau Is coy; he
or she Invariably dislikes to tell
j. his or her age," The Bee would
say, "Every applicant at the mar
riage license bureau Is opyj hlr
invariably dislikes to telThli' age."
The Bee admits it looks strange.
' It certainly does. But there is a
v real need for such a word. Some
one oace colaed the word "thea,"
' to ha used la place or he or she,
his or her, but the world was slow
to take It up aad it died ot agtact
