The ex- its last Conference championship,planation—Illinois claims two games Another noteworthy game in theProfessors AgreeWith Maroon onStudy Conditions'■chich Chicago maintains are unoffi¬cial. Thus according to the Illinireckoning they have won 19 games tothe Maroon’s 18, and according toChicago’s calculation the Maroonslead with 18 victories to Illinois’ 17.The dispute turns upon the gamesI'f 1894 and 1918, both of which H-linoi.s claim.'< for its victory column.In 1894 the game ended in a wrangle"hen the Illinois coach tried to fol¬low Stagg’s example of the year be¬fore and play with his charges onfho field. Chicago claims that thecoaches had agreed at the end of thepreceding season that coaches shouldoot j)lay, Illinois claims there was nosuch agreement, and that the refereeJJ'varded the game to Illinois by de¬fault.The 1918 affair, likewise needed byfhe Illini to show a margin over Chi-ciigo, the Maroons claim is invaliddue to the general suspension of Biglen rules made because most of thecollege .students were overseas or pre¬paring to go there.1 he most famous game of the se-‘‘c.s is that of 1924, when the highlytoute(l Illinois team came to Stagghold in full cry for the conferencechampionship with Red Grange athis greatest in his senior year. Thestar of the Chicago team was “Five-yard” McCarthy, famous for his line,bucks.The Maroon team took an earlylead, and held it by the simple tech¬nique of keeping possession of theball. Whenever Illinois got the ball,Red Grange was away for a touch¬down, but the Maroons through theirmonopoly of the ball, managed to^ore three times. So much did theMaroons taltf out of the Illini that.series is that of 1906, the first yearof the forward pass, Chicago cameout on top 63-0, giving Illinois oneof the worst beatings ever adminis¬tered in Big Ten comi>etition.According to the Maroon record,the home team has a substantial leadin total points for the series—427 to350 for Illinois, Illinois claims an ad¬ditional 29 points garnered in the1918 game.During the past few years, Chicagoand Illinois alike have fallen on evildays as far as football is concerned,and the games have been closely con¬tested as a result. Since 1931 therehas never been a more than one-touch-(Continued on Page 4)In general enjoining silence as totheir identity, but willing to giveanonymous “quotable quotes,” mem¬bers of the University faculty andadministration yesterday heartily ap¬proved The Daily Maroon’s campaignfor better conditions in the Univer¬sity libraries.An extension of the campaign toinclude bad ventilation conditions inlibraries and lecture halls was urgedby Mary B. Gilson, assistant profes¬sor of Economics. Arthur P. Scott,associate professor of History, whilemuch pleased to see student interestin the problem of study conditionsurged the part the student himselfmust play in reduction of noise. Amember of the Buildings and Groundsdepartment stated that many of theinexpensive improven^nts suggestedby 'The Maroon were “very good” andhave been taken up for considerationby the department. •Doctors Discuss LightUniversity doctors made statementsvarying in method of expression from“it’s just not good ‘horsesense’,” to“liability of a harmful photo-conjunc¬tivitis,” in commenting on the harmwhich may be caused from the light¬ing conditions of the school as re¬vealed in Wednesday’s article.In discussing the effect of sub¬standard light, such as is present inmost of the campus libraries, one doc¬tor stated that the strain on the eyescaused by lack of efficient illumina¬tion “definitely cuts the amount oftime which a student may spend instudy by such an amount as to causesevere ‘burning’ and ‘tearing’ whichprevents concentration and clear vi¬sion.” Consequently, if students con¬tinue to study for any length of timeunder these conditions, there is dan¬ger of “a permanent harm to theeye.s due to the straining of eyemuscles and a resulting displacementin the normal equilibrium between the(Continued on Page 3)A student show, free to all!A new Ceremonial bonfire!Introduction of the first homecom¬ing queen in history!An all campus snake dance!The gay Vanities dance!This is the order of today, the firstsection of a giant two-day Homecom¬ing celebration in preparation for theannual Chicago-Illinois football bat¬tle tomorrow on Stagg field.Illinois Beauties See GameIn addition to the University’s ownqueen, freshman Jane Myers, threepopularity contest winners from theUniversity of Illinois will witness fhegame.

Prospects for aclose fought game plus the homecom¬ing ceremonies to be held this weekend indicate that tomorrow’s gamewill bring out the largest crowd StaggField has seen yet this year.The Maroons held their last in¬tensive practice session yesterdayafternoon. Although there was no ac¬tual scrimmage, a long chalk talkwas followed by intensive drill onpass defense, and work on offensiveformations. Illinois has shown littleoffensive strength this year, but theyare always dangerous because oftheir tricky offensive formation.s andtheir abundance of passers.Skoning Offensive StarChicago’s hopes for victory tomor¬row re.st primarily on the able shoul¬ders of Duke Skoning, powerful sen¬ior fullback, and Sollie Sherman,tricky sophomore speedster. Skoningis being groomed to alternate hispower drives with Sol’s off tackleslants, end sweeps, and running pass¬es. If the Illini spread their defense,as they have done in previous ye^rs,to stop Sherman’s ssveeps, Skoningshould tear holes in their light line.The lineup which Coach Shaugh-nessy expects to start tomorrow willcontain eight seniors, including OmarFarced, who, although a .senior, maybe able to play another year. Thislineup will include Gillerlain andFitzgerald at ends, Wright and Sap¬pington at tackles, Jordan and Bos¬worth at guards, and Whiteside atcenter. In the backfield Hamity willbe at quarter, Fareed and Shermanat the halfback positions, and Skon¬ing at fullback, Fitzgerald, Hamity,and Sherman are the only men onthis outfit who are not seniors.Centers Strive for All-ConferenceAn interesting feature of tomor¬row’s game will be the battle at cen¬ter between Captain F]1 Sayre of theIllini, and the Maroon’s Co-CaptainSam Whiteside.

We’re mostly surprised, quite pleased, andprobably not making the best of our new-found oppor¬tunities.Four days ago there were nine—names we’d gather¬ed hither and yon, mostly from club recommendations.When they assembled to pose for Hearstpaper Heraldand Examiner the photographer licked a mental chop,lined them up, and used six plates.Two days later we telephoned the papers to comeout and choose the finalist. The Daily News sort ofgrunted; the Times said “Thank you’’ in a “no” sortof way; the American and Examiner shouted “SEX!”and the photogs walked into the office as we were hang¬ing up.We took the girls to the field house, left them comb¬ing their hair while we went down iato the locker room.The football squad was just putting on its pants. Ina quiet voice we said we wanted the boys to choose aHomecoming queen, and there were nine girls upstairs.We picked ourselves up from the floor and ran back upafter the squad.Whiteside, after a bit of prodding, indicated a choice.Jordan just kept mumbling incoherently. The coachessuddenly called the rest of the boys out onto the field.The Tribune photographer barreled in, feeling in ex¬cellent spirits. We put it up to the reporters and pic-turemen. Well we knew the everpresent results of apersonal choice!The metropolitan men squinted, appraised, approvedof Jane Myers. She would photograph best.The other girls were swell about it.Jane posed, was interviewed, and moved to the Cof¬fee shop where we outlined her duties. The Americanreporter strung his interview along for a half an hour.We arranged to have Jane at the Ceremonial tonight inthe Circle, and the dance afterward in Ida Noyes hall.Then we thought we were through with queens.But when we got back to the Maroon office we founda note from Mr. Morgenstem, who is publicity directorfor the University. To the note was attached threepictures—queens all! “These are the three Universityof Illinois popularity queens. They can come up to thegame and stay for the evening activities. Will you getthem dates?”We swallowed hard and decided to be fair about itand get at least one of them a date with somebody else.We thought it would be easy.But it wasn’t easy! None would believe us. Elliottlooked at us, backed off, and ran away. Bud Larsonhastily moved a table between us. After a bit weconvinced them it was true. They accepted. So doesa landslide.Down at Bartlett Gym even Mr. Metcalf, director ofathletics, married man that he is, looked twice at thepictures. We bumped under Bill Gillerlain, footballendman, and signed him for the third girl for the eve¬ning. He had a dreamy look as he left us.But don’t anyone ask us for any more queens. Theyonly happen four times in a lifetime.We’re ready to die any time now.* * •COME ANDSEE HER!So the University’s own Queen Jane, the first queenever on campus, will meet you tonight at 8 in the Circle.We’ll be there, and tell you more about her—at theCeremonial!DIRTY DEEDDOEDMy love has flew—Him done me dirt.Me did not knowHim was a flirt.To them in loveLet I forbid.Lest they be doedLike I been did.—La Verne RiessSUBVERSIVEINFLUENCEDear Brother:I have been thumbing through the Student Directoryand noticed, among campus organizations, the RomanceClub.Hmmmmmmmmmm.—A1 PDinstielLettersto the EditorFRESHMAN COMPLAINTWednesday, Nov. 16.Editor,The Daily Maroon:Congratulations on today’s bril¬liant survey of the library situation.I have for years been trying to find alibrary in which it was possible toread, and on arrival in Chicago hadalmost given up hope and was re¬signing myself to the apparent cer¬tainty that all human beings exceptmyself had phosphorescent eyes andlids to their ears. The University libraries, as I found them, only con¬firmed that conception. It is there¬fore most encouraging to find, inyour columns, some hint of the sug¬gestion that the main function of alibrary is not, after all, the provisionof facilities for social conversationsurrounded by an imposing array ofrare manuscripts.Now that the matter has beenbrought to'light (even if only 15-foot candles) may we sufferers ven¬ture to hope that something will bedone? Lack of sufficient funds forlarge scale rebuilding should nothinder the adjustment of the minorlighting and seating arrangementsthat mean so much. As for the noise,if moral suasion has no effect, mightone venture to suggest the suspens¬ion, after adequate warning, ofcourse, of the offender’s librarycards? We know America is a freecountry, may it ever continue to beso, but this does not imply the rightof the individual to make life un¬pleasant for those around him. Thepublicity you have given to thisurgent problem encourages one tohope for some substantial improve¬ment NOW, not merely for the nextgeneration of students.Cyril M. LifetreeDear Editor:The Daily Maroon:Oh give me a land of sun and flow¬ers and summer the whole yearlong;Oh give me a land where the goldenhours roll by to the mocking¬bird’s song!(—Deuteronomy 1-49-59.Hep. Somebody pass the ball.)Woe is me, woe is me!—(Shakes¬peare,)I wisht I was in Oklyhomy.If I had anything besides six pen¬nies, an Oklahoma mill, a Daily Ma¬roon slug, and a street-car check, I’dcertainly be on my way to the SunnySouthland right now, because that un-cherishable and unadorable Afildelt,Lloyd James, has mint me.Perhaps you would be glad to fin¬ance me sufficiently to get me startedhome. Who wouldn’t?Or if I promised to come back andagain write the svelte Travelling Ba¬zaar a la Daily Herald and Exam¬iner, perhaps you would give me asum in advance. Then I could take avacation after the strenuous task ofwriting the last column, and especi¬ally of acknowledging the unanimousinterest which the column elicited.You see, the said interest was ratherperturbing, in a way. Woe is me.It’s unbelievable how many peoplereally do read the Bazaar. If you’dlike to know, I could tell you.If it is really possible that thereare minor trivial reasons why youwouldn’t want such a lovely columnagain, maybe I can earn my trainfare by winning prizes in Why-I-Like-Pink-Soap contests, or perhaps byjudging freshman queen contests.On my way home to Oklyhomy,I’ll confide to myself that the reasonI wrote that column was that theMaroon hadn’t had a delicate gniShcolumn in many moons. That’ll makeme feel martyric, or something. Ormaybe it was that quart of peachbrandy I killed to drive away a chill.Who knows ?Well, farewell,E. C. F.Ex-ColumnistP.S.

It is enough to tickle the mostfinicky and picky aesthetic palate.At the moment my mouth is wateringas profusely as one of Pavlov’s dogswhen he heard the gong. It seems tome that Mr. Longone is taking aplunger in offering such a galaxy ofstars, such extravagant names, in sofine a rei)€rtoire. It is more than astep in the right direction.Heginning today with Wettergrenand Tokatyan in “Carmen” you canhave the mosta of the besta throughto Lily Pons and Bentonelli’s “Lak-me” the evening of the twenty-eighth. That date is the last onethat has been announced at this writ¬ing..Jepson and Pinza are doing‘Faust” tomorrow afternoon. Galli-Curci is staging her reappearanceTuesday in “La Boheme.” Wednes¬day evening, to start the evening offwith a bang before the Interfraterni¬ty Hall, you might take “Aida” intoyour stride. The cast includes Mar-linelli, Rethberg, and Wettergren.The world premiere of “Jack andthe Beanstalk” takes place Thanks¬giving.

There are about200 miles of type in these columns,which contain approximately 50 mil¬lion words or about 3C'0 million let¬ters and figures, not counting thepunctuation marks. If the lines oftype were placed end to end theywould cover about six times the dis¬tance across the English channel.Forty-four VolumesIn the University an Oxford’ Dic¬tionary may be found in Harper Li¬brary. This magnus opus had its be¬ginning in 1884, and was published ina series of 126 pamphlet forms untilit was completed in 1928. In its mod¬ern edition of 10 volumes the dic¬tionary costs $120.Among the crumbly pages of thefirst edition pamphlets this arresting,array, nounal and definitive, of wordscarried a colorful etymology: foisty,gyzzarn, lyyn, mesnalty, sniggle,szmikite, tezkere, thyzle, uzzle, vy-wer and wilga.

A few suggest an¬swers to the question in the cynicalmanner peculiar to University stu¬dents; few know that the murals rep¬resent the figures in the pageant “TheMa.sque of Youth” which wa.s givenon the Midway back in 1916 to com¬memorate the dedication of IdaNoyes Hall.The masque was performed in theWomen’s quadrangles and the prom¬inent women at the University tookpart. The murals found on the wallof the Ida Noyes Theater show thepageant, and the figures symbolizesome of the .studies pursued in theUniversity. Archaeolog^y is symbol¬ized by a Pomi>eiian lamp, an Egyp¬tian papyrus, and an Ionic Capital.Other subjects, among them chemis¬try, medicine, literature, and math¬ematics, are depicted with appropri¬ate symbols.But the South wall of the theaterdraws the most comment from stu¬dents. Against a background of treesand University building the artist,Mrs. Jessie Botke, has transformedthe Masque. Characters depict an al¬legorical .story concerning Youthwho enters, joyous in her unawak¬ened powers, and who meets AlmaMater, the figure in white (carefulinspection reveals the fact that EdithFoster Flint, professor of Englishtook this part in the Masque) . AlmaMater summons her ideals as a chal¬lenge to Youth, spirit, while the otherfigures roniping behind Alma Matersymbolize Romance of Literature,Knowledge, Nature, and the Olympicgames.tals they do present an involved puz¬zle, the solution of which can befound only in the dictionary itself.Settling his glasses, the dictionai'yman stated succinctly, “Everyone whohas ever read the dictionary haspraised it highly, but nobody has everread all of it, so far as we know,”which is a distinct challenge to allthe savants on campus.Bookstore DisplaysPlates from MostCostly of all BooksThe University of Chicago Pressyesterday announced the arrival ofsets and plates of the costliest bookever to be publicly sold, “AncientEgyptian Paintings” by Nina M.

Two contain plates and oneis a text volume by Mr. Gardiner whois considered England’s foremostEgyptologist. The plates, which con¬sist of temple and tomb paintings,were copied from the walls by Mrs.Davies, who is very noted as a paint¬er of archeological subjects. Shespent 25 years in this work. The twofolio volumes measure 18 by 23 inchesand each contain 52 plates.The actual cost of binding andprinting the set was between $50,000and $60,000. The set of three vol¬umes is being sold now for $50, butwill increase in price the first of theyear. Wherever advance copies havebeen seen they have been the centerof attraction.

In commenting on glareconditions due to inadequate fixturesand shiny tables, another doctor said,“it’s just not good horsesense.”When questioned yesterday as tothe part the Buildings and Groundsdepartment intends to play in im.proving study conditions on campus,a member of the department signifiedtheir intention of improving the Uni¬versity libraries.“Some of the suggestions to betterconditions brought by the survey ofThe Daily Maroon are being studiedand wherever it is possible to correctthe existing situation without the ex¬penditure of a large sum of money,action will be taken.”Mary B. Gilson, assistant profes¬sor of Economics, yesterday congrat¬ulated The Daily Maroon upon itscampaign for improved conditions inthe campus libraries, but suggestedextension of the campaign to coverbad conditions of ventilation.“Both faculty and students shouldbe more fresh air-minded,” she ex¬postulated. She stated that not onlylibraries but many discussions andlecture rooms are “provokingly” de¬void of fresh air.“The student’s physical health is asimportant as his intellectual devel¬opment, and despite so-called ventil¬ation systems, even the atmosphere inmany of the newer University build¬ings is far from healthful.*’Arthur P. Scott, associate profes¬sor of History, made the followingstatement on The Maroon’s librarycampaign:“I am very glad to see such an in¬terest in this problem, and I verymuch hope that more funds ■will bemade available for any necessary ad¬ditions to the libraries. As I haveoften told my students, I also belie'vethat the noise in the College libraryin Cobb hall is to a large extent theirown fault, but this idea has had lit¬tle effect.”Physiologists Describe Diurnal BodyTemperature Variations to AcademyAn existing diurnal cycle—a regu¬lar variation of our body tempera¬ture in accordance with the alterationof day and night—has been demon¬strated by Dr. N. Kleitman, Associ¬ate Professor of Physiology, and Mr.S. Teitlebaum, Ph.D. candidate. Bothpresented a paper on the diurnal cyclein babies at the National Academyof Sciences Here.For the last fourteen years Dr.Kleitman has been studying condi¬tioned reflexes, especially in relationto sleep. Working with Mr. Teitle¬baum, he has found that aduHs socondition their nervous apparatus asto become sleepy in accordance withday and night. Consequently, theybunch their sleeping state into oneperiod and their waking state intoanother.In contrast to this, babies under theage of two, not having established adiurnal cycle, have a fluctuatingsleeping cycle instead of an alternatecycle as is found in adults. The abil¬ity of a baby to establish a diurnalcycle is as much of an indicator ofhis ability to learn as is his beginningto walk or talk.Paralleling this diurnal sleepingcycle in babies and adults, is a tem¬perature cycle. Dr. Kleitman and Mr.Teitlebaum have found that in adultsthe body temperature falls from 2-3degrees during sleep, and rises againduring their waking hours. In babiesthe temperature cycle fluctuates withthe irregular sleeping cycle.These studies show the necessityfor training babies in routine habitsfor a particular kind of environment.To illustrate, if we were to be pro¬jected into an environment whereday and night alternated twice in¬stead of once, w^e would have an ab¬normal stress set up in our nervoussystem because of the necessity forreconditioning our sleeping habits.As a National Research Fellow, Dr.Kleitman has worked at the Univer¬sity of 'Utrecht in Holland and atthe University of Paris in France.He came to the University in 1921.Mr. Teitlebaum is a graduate stu¬dent at the University. He is doingthis work with Dr. Kleitman for hisdoctorate degree.WHO MUST WININ SPAIN?LOYALISTSSayi Maxwell E.

Agajin?” atthe upsets that came crashingthrough for about the fifth consecu¬tive time.Certainly Sam Whiteside provedhimself as fine a guesser as he is acenter—and we’ll nominate him forconference first team on both points.This week the pigskin climax ofthe year is reached at South Bend.This game is going to be hell for theexperts to guess, so what chancehave I?After a teeter-totter record canNotre Dame hope to smash North¬western? Remember these scores(and weep;): 21-7 over Carnegie(and Duquesne last week beat Car¬negie 18-0 after having beaten Pitt0-0) ; only 14-6 over Washington ofSt. Louis; a 27-0 triumph over Wis¬consin (which held Northwestern18-26!); a crushing by Pitt, 26-0(which beat Ohio only 7-0); a weaselover that same Ohio team, 7-2; anupset, 3-0, by Navy; and a reverseof anti-government tactics by thump¬ing the highly-touted West Pointers,20-6. How to predict the future ofa team like that?On the other hand Northwesternhas conservatively won seven games,most of the important ones by nar¬row margins. 'Tiiey beat out (Dhiobyonly one point, 14-13, and gainingthe breaks on a sloppy field crushedthe uncrushable Minnesotans, 6-0.Last week their excuse for a realscare when Michigan held them to a0-0 win was that they were easingup for the Notre Dame battle. Therecord, despite the Minnesota over¬throw, is definitely not overly im¬pressive.And after all that, only becauseNotre Dame won last week andtherefore, as they have been goingthis year, should lose this Saturday,I think Northwestern should eke outa 13-9 victory for their mythicalclaims to a mythical national titlewhich is still rightly Minnesota’s.Important fumbles this week-end:Northwestern, 13; Notre Dame, 9.Ohio State, 16; Michigan, 6.Purdue, 20; Indiana, 14.Minnesota, 30; Wisconsin, 6.Illinois, 9; Chicago, 6.Michigan State, 19; Arizona, 0.Temple, 10; Iowa, 0.Duquesne, 7; Marquette, 6.Fordham, 13; Georgia, 0.Princeton, 16; Dartmouth, 7.Yale, 20; Harvard, 6.California, 10; Stanford, 7.Tarpon ExhibitionFeatures Parody ofChristmas SpiritTarpon will present its annualswimming exhibition in the pool ofthe Ida Noyes Hall December 4 and5.

The group is composed of sev¬eral women from the regular teams.a former all-conference star of Il¬linois.The Maroons will not be short onreserve strength. With more thantwo experienced men to a position,McGillivray is confident that by Janu¬ary, when the Big Ten season starts,the University tanksters will be astrong contender with Northwesternand Illinois for the conference cham¬pionship.Led by Bob Bethke, who the Ma¬roon coach thinks will show all-con¬ference ability this year, the Chicagoguards will consist of Bob Anderson,Dick Smith, Floyd Stauffer, NyeMcLaury, Wilson Button, and in somegames Chuck Wilson, captain of theswimming squad.In the forward wall will be six re¬turning veterans and a newcomer,Johnny Van De Water, who has hadexperience in preparatory school inCalifornia.

Northwestern,who did not lose a man from lastyear, looms as the probable’champion.However, Illinois, the defendingchampion, is always strong and mayrepeat. “Chicago?

Like an opiate, itdeadened their sensitiveness towardthe possible injustice of their con¬quest. Not only were most of the ac-count.s of Shang activity colored, butmany of the Chou manuscripts weredeliberately ascribed to the Shangperiod. The Chous precipitated them-selve.s headlong into the TwentiethCentury with the Slogan: “HighShang Otficials Were Heavy Drink¬ers."Dr. Creel found the language of theChou era fully as complex—as con¬cise, and as pungent—as modern Chi¬nese. He studied all available docu¬ments of the period, including manythousands of inscriptions on boneand bronze, in their most originalform. He examined all the principaldigs, covering minutely the scene ofthe Chou conquest.Research Turning PointHis research is a new approach toChinese history. According to Dr.John C. h'erguson, noted author ofnumerous works on Chinese art antihistory, “It constitutes a turningpoint in the treatment of ancient Chi¬nese history just as Gibbon’s ‘De¬cline and h’all of the Roman Empire’did in classical history. During thenineteenth century, European historywas completely rewritten as a resultof studies in philology and archaeol¬ogy. This has been impossible in thecase of Chinese history until the lastfew years, and Dr. Creel will alwayshave the honor of being the first toundertake this work.’’Dr. Creel has crystallized the re¬sults of his work in a scholarly, yetpopular, volume, “The Birth of Chi¬na.’’ In the words of the reviewer ofThe Peiping Chronicle: “As he leadsus through the difficult path of in¬terpretation of the past his step issure, but his footfall is never heavy.He knows when to tread deliberately,and indicates now and then that thereare other paths that might be follow¬ed, perhaps are being followed byothers, and suggests that perhapsthese other paths may lead to somedesirable goal, but for the presentthe more promising path is the one"e are following with him for ourguide.’’Bringing ancient culture up todate, his peroration asks: “If Men¬cius, Ssu-Ma Ch'ien, Plato, Epictetus,(icero and Shakespere came back to¬day and were shown the things onwhich we base our claim to great¬ness, would they be lost in admira¬tion or in amusement ?... If we com¬pare the Athens of Pericles and theRome of Augustus with the NewYork, London, Paris, or Berlin of ourday, can we honestly say that wehave advanced, culturally? Yes, incertain respects.”Experimental BiologySociety Meets HereThe Illinois Society for Experimen¬tal Biology in Medicine, will hold ameeting Monday at 7 in Pathology117.This is one of the five meetingsheld every year by the society. Tenor twenty short papers will be read,each reporting on a research projectcarried on in Illinois.One of the highlights of the pro¬gram will be a paper by Dr. G.

NOVEMBER 20, 1936LaboratoryRow« * «By NICHOLAS TAPPOur physical sciences are concen¬trated in a few buildings on theNorth side of campus extending fromUniversity to Ellis Ave. The GeorgeHerbert Jones Chemical Laboratory,the building farthest west, was anoutright gift to the University at acost of three-quarters of a milliondollars to George H. Jones.Jones is for most part divided upinto small laboratories in which one,two, or three graduates w’ork on re¬search problems. The remainder ofthe building contains the ChemicalLibrary, the men’s and women’ssocial rooms and a few large ad¬vanced laboratories.Some people wonder why graduatestudents hang around anyhow, espe¬cially when the most they can earneven if they can get an assistantship,which requires eight to fifteen hoursof work per week, is a net of $300 peryear after tuition has been subtractedfrom their total remuneration. Theanswer is that they all have theireyes on Ph.D’s for which they mustwrite a thesis based on original re¬search. There are approximatelysixty working in organic chemistry,twenty-five in physical chemistry andfifteen in inorganic chemistry.The Chemistry department feelsthat research at Jones is better thanthat at many other schools becausethe professors and the students arew'orking together to create new meth¬ods rather than yielding to the temp¬tation to turn the crank of a pre¬existing method. Their researchprojects are searching for funda¬mental knowledge which has oftenonly a theoretical value and there¬fore are not usually very exciting tothe average person. However, theamount of interest which a particu¬lar bit of research incurs is no cri¬terion of its importance,* • *For instance certain compoundsare known to exist which theoreti¬cally should be extremely unstable.Professor H. 1. Schlesinger and An¬ton Burg are carrying on an investi¬gation along this line. A specificexample of this phenomena is a com¬pound containing two atoms of boronand six atoms of hydrogen. Thisboron has two electrons missing andyet it is a fairly stable compound..So far about fifteen people havewritten papers on the structure ofboron hydrides of which no two arein harmony.
