Smith,professor of philosophy, and LeonardD. White, px'ofessor of public admin¬istration, and published by the Uni¬versity press, will appear Monday,December 16, in connection with theformal opening and dedication of thenew social science research building.The work, an orderly symposiumon the work of the local communityresearch committee for the past fiveyears, presents the concept of thenew building as the administrativeoffice and workshop for the socialscientists who use Chicago as theirlaboratory. The scientific optimismof the collaborators expresses itselfin the statement by Professor Whitethat the new building, provided bythe Laura Spelman Rockefeller mem¬orial, , will “materially accelerate”the work of numerous joint subcom¬mittees on phases of research pro¬jects.From the opening chapter on “TheCity as a Social Laboratory,” byRobert E. Park, professor of socio¬logy and anthropology, to the con¬cluding chapter on “Social Science Re-.search and the Community,” by T.V. Smith, the book throbs with thelife of Chicago. It seems to marka new era in social science research,one in which “the social scienceshave reached the point where it isopen to them to use laboratorymethods.”Contributors are Ernest W.

This time, as it did last year,when the concert was held in thechapel, the famous group of malesingers comes at the invitation ofthe Undergraduate council.Founded in 1897The Kedroff Quartet was origin-j ally founded by Professor N. N.Kedroff in 1897; his brother, C. N.i Kedroff, joined in 1910 and Messrs.I I. K. D e n i s s 0 f f and T. F.Kasakoff in 1920. Of great famein Russia, having toured Europemany times prior to the World Warand with a brilliant record of a quar-' ter century’s work a sthe best ex-' ponent of Russian folk music, thequartet left Ru.ssia in 1923. Sincethat time they have toured Germany,1 Holland, P'rance, Belgium, Switzer-; land, Spain, Portugal, England, Ire¬land and Scotland and have sung in! the presence of King George ofEngland, the Queens of Spain andBelgium and the President ofFrance.Recently Celebrated AnniversaryIn Paris, on May, 1927, thequartet celebrated its thirtieth an¬niversary.

Critics have universally acknowl¬edged them to be without equal. They are further distinguished inthat their singing has always held great popular appeal; the highquality of their art is not beyond the appreciation of even the laymusic lover. This rare combination of artistry and popularity whichis theirs has been convincingly revealed in the two preceding con¬certs given on this campus.The Daily Maroon feels that in bringing the Kedroffs to theUniversity again at considerable financial risk, the UndergraduateCouncil has rendered one of the few valuable and tangible servicesof which it is capable. The Daily Maroon approves.EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIESIt has long been a platform of The Daily Maroon to encourageundergraduate participation in extra-curricular activities. We haveheld this platform because we firmly believe that through the me¬dium of these activities, the four undergraduate years are enrichedbeyond all comprehension. They bring the student into a multitudeof contact that are not possible through any other means.The undergraduate who participates in one or more extra- cur¬ricular activities is not merely engaged in the work of his chosenfields, but becomes associated in the whole intricate system ofstudent activity. He comes to know countless people whose workoverlaps his own. He comes to learn to appreciate their abilities,their points of view, and in general to appreciate the worth of in¬dividuals who otherwise would remain nothing but names.Freshmen, who are urged to come out this and that activity,often withhold from them upon the misguided notion that the timeso taken would be detrimental to the school work. This we thinkhas been conclusively disproven. If a tabular report were to bemade concerning those men who are leaders in student activities,the results would undoubtedly show that they are leaders in schol¬astic fields as well. The day of the cloistered scholastic has passed.Instead, we find the true scholar of today is a living example of thetimes. He is both broad in his theoretical and practical knowledge.TTiere are numerous examples to be found on the University facultytoday of men who were successes in student activities during theirundergraduate days.At the present time, the University extra-curricular activities arewoefully undermanned. This is a serious fact in that is a direct re¬flection upon the University, One of the main ways an institutionis judged by the public at large is by the quality of its student ac¬tivities. At the present time such work is being admirably conductedat great effort upon part of the managers of the various organiza¬tions. It can only be said that there is no telling to what lengthsour already noted extra-curricular activities can ascend if studentswill but take advantage of the obvious and help themselves as wellas their University.

It is a rare sightthese days to see a Maroon athletewearing his sweater.Maybe it's about time Maroonathletes held a parade. Will some¬one in the Political Science depar'.-ment draw up a petition to tha'.effect?Macs Win Singles,TK£ Doubles InHorseshoe TourneyOver 200 men competed in theHorseshoe tournament which wasconcluded the other day.

Hy the time you finishedreading t’ne column you felt likeyou were on your way out, alright;just where . . . well, better leave itunsaid."THI.'s W.AV OUT” has beenfunctioning for soii'.“ time now inrespectable fashion. We have beengiven full credit for the title andwhile no patent was taken out onit we did not believe that anyonewould have the temerity to borrowthe title.Imagine, then, our surprise Mon¬day when '^e entered the confinesof 20(5 to make out registration foranother twelve weeks. Followingthe prescril ed routine, we filled outthe white < ards, handed them to abusiness-like young lady, who check¬ed her schedule very minutely to seethat w{‘ wereii'l getting away withanything, and then informed us thatif we followed our n->se we were cer¬tain to reach the fiist floor office.We offered oui thanks and for amoiniT'.t the ytuing lady was stunned.We turned Idithely aiound tocarry out her insiruction when loand behold—right in tni‘ middle ofthe door was a nice big white signwith neatly scrolled black letters.We are not so sure now that theletters weie neatly scrolled. Theylooked rather imposing. Hut whatdazed me was the effrontery of thesign: "THIS W.\Y OUT.”We went out t'm wav we came in!The Macs cashed in with a victoryin the singles tournament in the per¬son of Frank Golbus.

Thefirst Varsity team got the longestworkout and after they concludedtheir practice a procession of menrepleted the ranks and kept thehardwood floor resounding with theshouts and yells incidental to everybasketball scrimmage.What may constitute the regularlineup against Lake Forest Saturdaynight showed yesterday in practicethat it will need a lot of experiencebefore it can visualize itself as acontender in the Big Nine race.Coach Norgren has capable materialthis season but it is w'oefully in needof seasoning. This it will get, nodoubt, in its practice encounters.Bunge and Bocsel continue to di¬vide attention as contenders for thevacant center post. Bunge is heav¬ier than Boesel and almost as tall.He has been showing plenty of speedafoot which is much in his favor.If Boesel responds to Norgren’sstyle of game during the next fewweeks the Maroons w’ill be fortifiedwith two hefty and rangy centers.Temple seems certain to startagainst Lake Forest at one of theguard posts.

"The total expendituresfor the year 1927-28 were $5,620,219.13;the increase for the rear just closedbeing $371,277.45.’’"The assets of the University, in¬cluding funds held as agent and tem-(Kirariiy, amount to $88,357,337.72, as com¬pared with $77,812,221.26 a year ag(',the increase being $10,545,115.40.significant factor in the increase of as- |sets is the receipt of gift- received 'during the year amounting to $6,920,- j601.06.” IThe Univer-ity’,-. balance sheetshows assets as ti.dli.'>\' ': endowment Ifund asset', $50,889,403.97; plant fund Iasset'. $30.833.()6.-'.45 ; current tunc',assets. $4.688,944.c2; and c>ther fund jassets $1,945,873.78. j"In spite of the ratiier large addi¬tions to the funds of the I’niver.'itx. jaggregating nearly $34,000,000 in the ,last five years, the need for furthersubstantial addition> still persists,” savsthe report.First among the policies of the Uni¬versity as they were outlined by Pre>-ident Robert M. Hutchins during hi'inauguration, is to obtain anrt to nnraon its Faculty the outstanding schol¬ars and the best teachers in every field,and to pay these men and women sal-”It cannot too often be reneated.”; he said, "that it is men and nothing! hut men that make education. If e i-I ucation is to I'c respected in the L’nit-I cd States, and if teaching and research' are to draw the best minds, we mustI pay salaries that will attract the best■ men in competition with hu.'iness and, the iirnfessions.” 'I'he professorialI maximum, he pointed out. i> ntore im¬portant than the professorial average., ‘‘The spirit of the l'niver>ity'of C'hi-' cago has been characterized by em¬phasis on productive scholarship, bvemphasis on men belore everythingelse, on work with and for the cityof Chicago, and on an experimentalattitude.” He said, “ These four char¬acteristics will he the insignia of theUniversity's spirit to the end.”The ambition of the l'ni\ er.'ity forits undergraduate colleges is “th.e hotteachers to be obtained teaching thebest students to be found, with a cur¬riculum intelligently adju,;ted to theneeds of the individual.” Training of>tudents for a well-rounded citizen¬ship is a legitimate function of a uni¬versity, he said, and it is particularlya duty of the TJnivcrsity of Chicago,where the tradition is one of pioneei-ing, to carry forward experiments inthe reorganization of undergraduateteaching."I favor the selective system of ad¬mission for both the undergraduatecolleges and the graduate and ])rofe>-sional schools. I favor also the de¬velopment of a pass and honor «ys-tem, under which a student in fieldsin which he is particularly interesteddoes his work, with a minimum ot su¬pervision and a maximum of inde¬pendence. In fields which he wishesto know about but does not wish tospecialize in he should attend largelecture courses under the most stnn*luting lecturer-; that can be tound.1 he whole system should he so flex¬ible that a student could go as fastas his abilities permitted.”Other policies described by Pre-i-dent Hutchins were; that the variousdivisions of the University must co¬operate on interdepartmental projecikso that the specialized knowledge ofeach becomes available for the solu¬tion of major mutual problems; thatresearch workers, especially in the so-! cial sciences, must concentrate on thestudy of life as it is actually beinglived; that buildings and eejuipmentmust be provided as fast as the need: and opportunity arise; and that the f,' lation between tuition and the schol-i arship fund should be so adjusted that' no capable persons be kept out of theUniversity for lack of funds alone.At the inaugural ceremony on \o-j vember 19, which was designated U'! the One Hundred and Fifty-seve-iuhI Convocation of the University, thehonorary degree of Doctor af Lav. sI was conferred upon Martin .\.
