Aug 1922 – How Do You Pronounce Sheik?

“We wish, Goddess of Knowledge, you would prove you’re not a fake and settle all the arguments about this Sheik. Now Rudolph Valentino insists it should be “shake”. While dear old Noah Webster, before whose authority we quake, says that either is correct, but gives the preference to “sheek” thus the argument goes on and to settle it we seek. We’ll make a wager here and now that the girls will not criticise, or care just how this words pronounced with one look at Rudolph’s eyes!”
