BERLIN (WNS)- The term "Ar- yan," which in Nazi parlianc 0 has become synonymous with anti- Semitism, was officially aban- doned this week by the German government, the first to erect it into an official policy, when Minister of the Interior Wilhelm Frick announced that the use of the word "Aryan" would be dis- continued in new laws issued by the ministry The change was explained on the ground that "Aryan," in linguistic terminology, is inexact, since the people of "non-Aryan" races may speak "Aryan" langu- ages, and vice versa. In place of "Aryan," future decrees will employ the phrase "of German or cognate blood."
