“COMPLETECAMPUSCOVERAGEtie IBsiilvMen ’ attend actingpresident’s dinner.Vol. 28. No. 50.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16,1929Price Five CentsThe Blind AlleyBy Louis H. EngelYesterday I received a personalletter, all duly signed and sworn to,from Mr. Lawrence Reid, Editor, Mo¬tion Picture Publicaitions, Inc. ofNew York. Now it appears thatMr. Reid has a great deal to sayabout the stuff that appears in Mo¬tion Picture Magazine and MotionPicture Classic, and said Mr. Reid,feeling that the last named compen¬dium of the cinema art, needed afew prestige-giving contributions toestablish its fair and honorable namein the realm of popular periodicals,sat himself down at his bouncingRemington—or would you say it wasa Corona, my dear Watson?—andjiggled off a little note to variousand sundry college editors requestingopinions and comments on the present status of the silver screen.Along with the other five thou-and harassed souls who are attempt¬ing to raise the level of college jour¬nalism above the level of idiocy andat the same time keep their peacewith the Dean and the Deity and hismajesty, the undergraduate, I washighly flattered and deeply impres-ed with the gravity of my charge;namely, telling the world at largejust what the college man thought ofthe movies.• • •In just about two respects I feelthat I am unable to cope with theproblem and hence fear that dearMr. Reid is doomed to severe dis¬appointment. First of all, I don’tpatronize the movies, for from thetales I’ve heard of the activities thattranspire in balconies and dark cor¬ners of certain of the local picturepalaces, I am afraid that I as aninnocent and virtuous young manwould have my morals, such as theymay be, seriously corrupted by visitsto such dens of g^ross iniquity. In mymind’s eye I have an all too vividpicture of two of my own dearly be¬loved fraternity brothers who todayare ruined men solely as a result oftheir habituating the local theatres.“•Facilis descensus Avernus”—Bala-ban and Katz eagle-eyed ushers not-AL RAVES OVERDE LAMARTER’SINTERPRETATIONTone Poem by RavelCauses All theTroubleBy Alfred V. FrankensteinEric DeLamarter’s symphony pro¬gram at Mandel hall yesterday after¬noon caused palpitations and revolu¬tions in the mind of the writer thatprevent any impersonal considerationof the proceedings. The piece thatcreated the trouble was that tonepoem of Ravel entitled “La Valse.’’Ever since this work came before thepublic I have been writing and speak¬ing sneei*s concerning it. I hadevolved a delicately balanced andprecisely phrased argument to showit up as a failure. Ravel, I cried, isa miniaturist. Ravel, I shrieked, isa Frenchman. Ravel, I orated, is adiet of honey and spice. “TheWaltz,’’ I proclaimed, is an attemptat a large canvas in the Germanbeer-and-cheese manner. Ergo, “LaValse’’ can’t be a success. Q. E. D.Presentation CharacteristicYesterday afternoon something orother happened, and the piece camethrough with the snap and the sly,half intelligible giggle that charac¬terizes Ravel’s best efforts. You don’tknow if he means it, or if he is kid¬ding you, but you don’t care either.Henceforth I go the whole hog inpraise of Ravel, or perhaps it shouldbe in praise of DeLamarter.Virtuosity High“La Valse’’ was preceeded by aslightly shopworn performance ofthe second symphony of Brahms, andthe, “Roman Carnival’’ c .'erture ofBerlioz, wherein the virtuosity of theorchestra was at its highest. Theprogram concluded with the tonepoem “Les Preludes,’’ by Liszt. Thisis one of those compositions whoseparadoxical fate it is to be playedseldom because they are so terriblypopular. The word “terribly’’ iswithstanding—and during my term | utgral sense. And yetof ushering at McVickers about two j ^ ^summers ago I saw many a good ^ pf feeling and color comesman romping down the road to Hell !music, and one is gladwith full speed ahead. No sir! I *speedwon’t go to the movies. I might betempted, and Johnnie and I bothagree that it’s such a cheap thing todo, don’t you know.In the second place even if I werea competent critic of the motion pic¬ture, which I distinctly am not, Iwould not have the heart to tell Mr.Reid what I thought of motion pic¬tures. Perhaps some of you folk whohave suffered a hardening of theheart and arteries during your so¬journ around these quadrangleswould care to assist Mr. Reid’s re¬search, and to such as you The DailyMaroon generously open its Athen¬aeum column. Do not hesitate tosend in your opinions iinmejiately.We can stand all kinds of shocks.• * •For your guidance Mr. Reid sug¬gests some of the following topics:Does the screen represent collegi¬ate life truly or falsely, and howdoes this benefit or injure collegemen?Do college men take the moviesseriously—that is, do they regardthem as time-killers or as pretty fairentertainment?What kind of pictures do studentslike best?What do they think of the talkies?Who are the best liked men andwomen of the screen? Can you de¬termine why?Are students interested in takingup motion picture careers?What’s wrong with movies, if any¬thing? (Answers to this particularinquiry are limited in length to 137,691 words. Space does not permit.)Is college patronage of movies in¬creasing or falling off, and for whatreason?Are the movies intelligent enoughto interest college men? (This lastlooks like a dirty crack at the in¬telligence of us collegians.)• (Continued nn page 2)of its being. Similarly with thoseother musical stepchildren, the sym¬phonies of Chaykovski, the “NewWorld,’’ and dozens more. We mayturn aside in our infinite sophistica¬tion for stronger music, but in thevery sentimentality of these we mayalso find truth.GEOGRAPHER FROMSYDNEY SPEAKS ONADVANTAGES HEREGriffith Taylor, founder and headof the department of geography atthe University of Sydney, and nowaffiliated with the geography de¬partment at the University, is em¬phatic in his declaration that “it isan opportunity to be associated withthe University of Chicago.’’ Accord¬ing to Professor Taylor, work in Au¬stralia was a little out of touch withthe world and this chance of enlarg¬ing his knowledge is very welcome.“My time at the University will bedivided between the practical teach¬ing of geography and the continua¬tion of my book on Australia onwhich I have already spent severalyears.’’ While gathering material forthis book Professor Taylor investi¬gated practically every field of sci¬ence and sponsored many education¬al advances made in Australia.Late Exams DelayOrganization RatingsThe Bureau of Records announcedyesterday that no statement can bemade a1) present concerning the scho¬lastic standing of the fraternities andclubs, owing to the fact that thereare still many students with no ex¬amination grades. At present, thebureau is interc.si.fe'l only with the in¬dividual grades, but "t hopes to clas.*!-ify the organizations soon.Announce SittingsFor Group PhotosFraternity group pictures forthe Cap and Gown, an innova¬tion in this year’s book, are tobe taken in Mandel hall begin¬ning next Tuesday, accordingto announcement made yester¬day by John Ridge, editor.Pictures will be taken everyhalf hour, and fhe schedule forthe first day will be:Alpha Delta Phi, at 1:00.Alpha Sigma Phi, at 1:30.Beta Theta Pi, at 2:00.Alpha Tau Omega, at 2:30.Alpha Epsilon Pi, at 3:00.Acacia, at 3:30.Delta Chi, at 4:00.Sigma Chi, at 4:30.Sigma Nu, at 5:00.Schedules for other grouppictures, to be taken later nexfweek, will be announced later.Thompson UrgesStudents to HearBelgian HistorianIn a letter to the editor of TheDaily Maroon Professor James West-fall Thompson today urges studentsinterested in science, history or phil¬osophy to hear Professor George Sar-ton, Belgian authority in the newfield of the history of science, whowill lecture in Mandel hall Fridayevening at 8:15.Editor, THE MAROON,Dear Sir:“One of the world’s distinguishedscholars is to visit the University ofChicago this week' in the person ofProfessor George Sarton, who is togive three lectures upon the Historyof Science. The past seventy-fiveyears have seen enormous progressin both pure and applied science, andscientific re.search has not yet reach¬ed its high water mark, one may besure. But until recently few scient¬ists have realized how much scien¬tific work was done in previous cen¬turies and have been unapprecia¬tive of the labors of scholars in timespa.st. The Greeks in antiquity, the.\rabs and the Jews in the MiddleAges, the Italians in the age of theRenaissance contributed far more tothe advancement of science than hashitherto been perceived.Discovery Found* Society“It was this discovery which led,in the years immediately after theWorld War, to the foundation of theHistory of Science Society in Bel¬gium, an organization today of in¬ternational spread. Professor Sarton,who is a Belgian, was the movingspirit in this enterprise and is theeditor of Isis, the official organ ofthe society, and one of the world’sleading journals. The critical bibli¬ography published periodically inIsis, together with the indexes, con¬stitute the best key to the vast liter¬ature devoted to the philosophy andhistory of science and civilization.“During his present visit ProfessorSarton will deliver tlie following lec¬tures:(Continued on page 2)Beecher to InitiateTwenty-three WomenTwenty-three women will be for¬mally initiated as house members ofBeecher hall tonight at a formal in¬itiation ceremony.

His storieshave the appeal of absolute reality,’’said Professor Robert Morss Lov¬ett, of the English depai'tment, lastnight, in a lecture given at Fuller¬ton hall of the Art Institute. Profes¬sor Lovett gave a resume of the au¬thor’s life and works and contrastedhis style with that of Edith Whartonwhose work he discussed last week.He read extracts from “WinesburgOhio,’’ and other novels to illusti*atehis points.Professor Lovett and Andersonmet first in 1913. At the time ofthis meeting Anderson was workingas a painter and had not as yet pub- Ilished any of his stories. Shortly af- Iter this his first novel appeared^ and ;by 1924 he was considered one ofthe foremost modern writers inAmerica. Sherwood Anderson spokeGuided by a committee of twelveUniversity representaties, the thirty-four African students travelling inthis country under the auspices ofthe International Student associationspent a busy day yesterday inspect¬ing the University campus and carry¬ing out a varied itinerary.Arriving at 9 in thfe morning, theUniversity’s guests first visited theUnion stockyards, and spent severalhours there. They then went to IdaNoyes hall, where tea was servedby Mrs. Goodspeed, the hostess.Hear SymphonyAfter tea, the guests heard theprogram presented by the ChicagoSymphony orchestra in Mandel hallat 4:15. Four selections were pre¬sented under the direction of EricDe Lamarter, assistant conductor ofthe orchestra.In all their odd minutes the stu¬dents amused themselves with snowfights and sham battles. It was thefirst time most of the visitors hadseen snow, which is almost unknownin South Africa.Dine At Ida NoyesThe students dined at 6:30 in thesun parlor of Ida Noyes. The com¬mittee which had charge of their itin¬erary about the campus, consisting ofAlice Benning, chairman, ClarenceBarnhart, Charles Cutter, Ray Mur¬phy, Minott Stickney, Annette Allen,Harriet Harris, Jane Mullenbach,Elizabeth White, Edna Wilhartz, Ed-warda Williams and Marjorie Wil¬liamson, was also present, as was thecabinet of the International Studentassociation.“Architecture Impressive’’“This is certainly a very fine uni¬versity. We have nothing like this inSouth Africa. In fact, we have fewtowns which have as many inhabi¬tants as has the University commun¬ity,” stated one of the leaders of thevisitor’s party.“The architecture is especially im¬pressive,” he said, “and the buildingscertainly are not the type we have inSouth Africa. Another significantfactor is the beautiful structures de¬voted to religion, such as the chapels,which are practically unknown inSouth Africa.”DEAN B. G. NELSONTALKS ON ‘‘MUSIC INPOETRY’* OVER WMAQB. G. Nelson, associate professorof English and dean in the Collegeof Arts, Literature and Science,talked last night over WMAQ on“Music in Poetry.” “Three thingsenter into the poem: rhythm, tonecolor, and melody,” stated Dean Nel¬son.“The study of tone color is theleast known to the general public.The very sound of certain letters ofthe alphabet expresses the feeling ofthe poet and imitates the sense feltby him. For instance, the “d” andthe “b” are often used to show vio¬lent emotion.” Several poems werecited as examples among which wereTennyson’s “Ballad of the Fleet,”Poe’s “Helen,” and “Annabelle Lee”and Kipling’s “Recessional.”Goodspeed’s CourseTo Meet in HarperProfessor Edgar J. Goodspeed,who has been conducting a class inLiterature of the New TestamentSunday mornings at 9, in Swift 106,announces the change of the classroom to Harper M 11.Professor Goodspeed requestedthis change as the unusually largeclass cannot be accommodated inSwift, and there are better facilitiesfor exhibits in Harper M 11.ra^ TwoTHE DAILY MAROON, WEDNESDAY.

This spirit has brought about much direct reform;whether for better or worse remains to be seen. Undoubtedly,however, much academic deadwood has been disposed of, and themovements of the cumbrous college machinery have been facili¬tated.One of the most recent outcroppings of this post-war studentspirit occurred at Yale.Here a move toward wider cutting privileges, initiated by thestudent council, culminated in the granting of unlimited cuts to allhonor men in the three upper classes.This is a somewhat modified plan of the Dean s List systememployed at Harvard where Dean s List men and seniors in goodstanding have official sanction for cutting. This is, however, muchbroader in practice, asserts the Harvard Crimson, for men in goodstanding of whatever class are seldom called to account for theirabsences from the class room.Class attendance at the University is considered as necessaryin view of the absence of such tutorial systems as are in use at Har¬vard and Oxford. It is solely up to the individual instructor tojudge upon his students cutting status here, and in nearly all cases,the student is given all reasonable leeway. The granting of unlim¬ited cuts to students will come only when the research principlesof education which are now visioned by the administration areapplied.THE POWER OF LOGICAn optimist remarked to us after we had complained aboutthe cold wave that it had its good points. Then he explained thatevery human being is endowed with passions not the least of thembeing a passion for anger and vexation. Now he must have someoutlet for this passion. Too commonly the individual makes someother comparatively innocent human the subject of this necessaryexpression. That, admittedly, is not a good practice, it is not goodChristianity, it does not promote the spirit of brotherhood. In thiswave of cold weather, however, everyone turns his passions of ireand resentment on the frigid air, and his fellows are spared thisdisagreeable side of the human disposition.We thanked the optimist for his cheery counsel, but when uponreaching home we discovered that th‘e lobe of our left ear wasfrozen we not only addressed our curses at the weather but in¬cluded the optimist and his logic in our oath.OFFICIAL NOTICESWednesday, January 16Radio Lecture; “American Litera¬ture.” Professor Boynton, 8, StationWMAQ.Divinity chapel, 11:50, Joseph Bondchapel.

That handshakeswas the start of a long basketballstery that has grown and grown un¬til now it interests, not only thehome town fans, not just a few col¬lege boys, but everyone who followsWestern Conference basketball.Those two boys were Charles“Stretch” Murphy, then center onthe Marion, Ind. High School team,and now star center on Purdue’sBoilermaker quintet, and Russell“Rut” Walter, then center for Ko¬komo, Ind., High School and nowthe center and chief scoring threatof Northwestern’s cagers.They met after that....the ad-vantagre see-sawed back and forth..anl now....after the NorthwesternPurdue game.... Murphy holds thelead....Few people who watched the bat¬tle against Wisronsin last Satumnynight realized that “Bill” Crawfordwho played at one of the guard posi¬tions for the Maroons had been ateam mate of Doyle, co-captain ofthe Badger outfit, back in prep schooldays. The reunion failed to bringback many tears, eye witnesses re¬port.... And then Gist and Eller-man have a little story of their own.Back in 1925 when Bob Kaplan, theleader of the Englewood quintet, andVirgil Gist, who captained HydePark, were carrying on a little civilwar of their own which had the en¬tire south side in arms, Harry Eller-man, who was here with Wisconsin,was leading Lake View’s heavies to aNorth section championship. Finally,after a series of three team conteststhat were really tilts between thetwo leaders. Gist managed to gethis team to the finals where they metI.Ake View and ... . Ellerman. TheLake View quintet was in quite highspirits having just eked out a winover Marshall by a last minute bas¬ket by their captain. They still talkabout that game on the North Sideand what Visgil did. They went oito a championship. .. .and last Sat¬urday... .night... .he met Harryagain.... also no tears....N.C.A.R.III£nTOBE HELD IN MARCHAT WASHINGTON U.Wilson Pool, Site of SwimIs One of Bestin CountryThe sixth Annual National Col¬legiate Athletic Association swim¬ming meet has been awarded toWashington University and will bestaged in Wilson Pool on March 29and 30, according to Arthur E. Eil-ers, business manager of athletics,who has just returned from New Or¬leans where a meeting of the Associ¬ation was held.Eilers, a member of the N. C. A.A.

In 1928the meet was held at the Universityof Pennsylvania.Wilson Pool is one of the largestand finest swimming pools in the mid¬west and preparations are now beingmade to enlarge the seating capacityfor the coming affair.All of the leading universities andcolleges of the United States will,in all likelihood, send swimmers toparticipate in the championships. Be¬cause of the central location ofWa.shington it is confidently expect¬ed that the entry list will be consid¬erably larger than last year which,incidentally, was the most successfulof any meet yet conducted.The general control and conductof the meet will again be vested inthe Swimming Rules Committeecomposed of Fred W.

Both Farquahar, WinterSports Director at the University,and Geove Little will serve as of¬ficials at Wausau.Wisconsin’s Winter Sports Team,third place winners at Lake Placidthis year and champions last winter,will journey north to compete in theskating and skiing events. The Bad¬ger Hockey Sextette wil play severalmatches there with outside teams ofequal calibre.“There are many hockey teams inthe high schools and industrial cen¬ters throughout this state,” saidFarquahar, “and we will make an ef¬fort to induce as many as possibleof these to enter an amateur tour¬ney at Wausau next month, to de¬cide the Wisconsin Championship.HOFFE PLANS TORUN ALUMNI MEETOfficial CoUc^GPEATE2NITY(JewelryBa(^ips'Pir\^s-NufveltieamRPEN PIPER AGO31 M. STATB ST.Veterans From As Far BackAs *21 to CompeteThere is a possibility, which mayor may not materialize, of havingan alumni meet the U. of C. Varsitygymnasts with alumni from as farback as 1921 competing. One out¬standing athlete from this far-backyear, who wdll compete if this Alum-ni-Varsity meet goes through, is Wil¬liam Cripes. He was conferencechampion on the horse in ’21 andplaced in the national meet thatyear. This ex-Maroon star is at pres¬ent associated with the Commerceand Administration school in a busi¬ness* venture and therefore he hasbeen able to work out in the gymwith Coach Hoffer’s men daily.Other men who would participateas alumni are Flexner, last year’scaptain and national runner-up, Ad¬ler, star of 1924, and Nelson, whowas one of the team’s mainstays in11926. Davidson, who would be in-I valuable to an alumni aggregation,jwill be unavailable, as he is locatedin Arizona for the time being.If these men were in proper shapethere is no doubt but what theywould be able to beat the varsity, buta long lay-off is vei'y harmful in asport like gymnastics, and since thevarsity has some good talent itself,the meet will probably be veiy close.College Graduatesneed aSPRING BOARDto theirFIRST POSITIONour10 Weeks Intensive ShorthandCourse for only college grad¬uates and undergraduates will“spring” you into the job youwant.Get full information about thisspecial course in time to enrollfor winter quarter.Phone Wentworth 0992Business AdministrationDepartmentENGLEWOOD BUSINESS COLLEGE735 Englewood AvenueGOING SKATING TONIGHT?

It was found that they always followed the^ easiestgradients, that they penetrated the mountain vastness by the most directroute.Buffalo trails became one of the greatest assets of the early railwaybuilders. Time, money, energy, were conserved; a vast amount of fruit¬less pioneering and surveying was eliminated, by trusting to the infallibleinstinct which had led the herds along these obscure and little-known ways.Advertising, like those old buffalo trails, provides a clear and unmis¬takable path among the perplexities of modern buying. It points the wayto the goal of safety and sound value; it avoids the pitfalls of unknown andunreliable goods.
