Man has no completesecurity against the caprices of na¬ture. 2. We are not so independentof natural processes as we like tobelieve. 3. Our transcendence overthe limitations of space and time arenot so complete as is assumed bymodem culture. Shallow ^universal-ism is the result of this conception.4. Freedom over our own organicand psychological limitations is notso great as has been assumed. Thefinal limitation in all man’s venturesis his failure to conquer death.In conclusion. Dr. Niebuhr main¬tained that one of the immutablefacts of human existence is man’sfeeling of insecurity. In his attemptto overcome this insecurity, he re¬sorts to power.Heard in a lecture given by Mr.Lehman: According to the lateststatistics, most of the people whoare now thirty years old will besixty in thirty years from now.Students!Be Modern!FLY!Former Army Flight InstructorHas Openings in Limited ClassesFOR INFORMATION CALL:J.

We ask thatyou give the matter of student housing your im¬mediate consideration! This is not an attempton our part to lead an original crusade, nor is itan expression of any particular campus-interest-group. It is a problem which has made itselffelt in any number of ways: through letters wehave received, from verbal expressions of in¬dividual students, from dormitory, and fraternityhouse bull-sessions. It is a problem which isgrowing more and more serious quarter by quar¬ter.At present, the dormitories, excluding mostof Burton-Judson Court and Hitchcock Hall,house approximately 700 students, under condi¬tions which can only be described as overcrowded.Many of the people who are now living off cam¬pus are forced to do so by a lack of campushousing facilities. We need not remind you thatthe College is the fastest growing institution ofhigher learning in America. Obviously, evenwith a return to the University of those facilitiesnow occupied by the military, conditions willgrow worse, not better. To complicate the mat¬ter further, several thousand demobilized veter¬ans can be expected to enroll within the next fewyears under the G.I. Bill. Accomodations mustbe found for these men and women. Since suffi¬cient housing facilities are not available in theneighborhood off campus, there can be only oneanswer to the entire housing problem: an im¬mediate and large scale dormitory building pro¬gram.We have recently been informed that yougentlemen have designated a faculty committeefor the purpose of studying the problem of fac¬ulty housing for the postwar program. Excel¬lent ! Adequate faculty housing has long been amajor necessity at the University, and it is en¬tirely fitting that faculty representation be askedto assist in the solution of problems affectingthem. However, may we suggest that the sameprinciple be applied to the matter of studenthousing. After all, the students themselves arethe ones who have to contend with the practicalday by day problems of dormitory life.As far as we can judge the student point ofview, there are' two immediate recommenda¬tions which we would like to make anent thedormitory building program which must surelybe initiated in the near future. Briefly, theyare these:1) That the large dormitory method of con¬struction be abandoned in favor of a smallerhousing unit. By comparing the affects of livingin the smaller ex-fraternity houses with thelarger buildings accomodating a hundred stu¬dents or more, we find in the smaller livingunits an unprecedented development of well-in¬tegrated community spirit and interest.2) That better recreational facilities be pro¬vided among the various residence halls. To agreat degree, the success of a student's dormitorylife can be judged by his enthusiasm for thevarious types of intramural competition. Suchfacilities as house tennis courts, house gamerooms for billiards and table tennis, lounges, andmeeting rooms do much to add variety and valueto the extra-curricular activities of the students.These problems, however, pertain for the mostpart to construction. There are similar ones re¬lating 10 every phase of such planning. We urge,therefore, that a representative student commit¬tee be appointed to work side by side with theAdministration to achieve the aims of both.These, gentlemen, are the matters which weoffer, in the spirit of cooperation, for your con¬sideration. ^The Chicago MaroonTHE CHICAGO MAROONOfficial student publication of the University of Chicaso, published every Friday during theacademic quarters.

TheConstitution is still, therefore, knownas Old Ironsides. The hanging of theframed Constitution on the wall ofthe Library of Congress was the firstpolitical frame-up in American his¬tory.The most important stipulations ofthe Constitution were as follows:1. Only men who had children couldvote. (These were the fathers of theConstitution). Washington was in¬cluded because of his adopted son,“Hizcountry.”2. Indians were not liable for taxa¬tion on the grounds that they did notknow enough arithmetic to make outthe tax forms. This is the first in¬stance of the American policy thatthe Indian doesn’t count.3. The Government should grant notitles to its citizens. This caused De¬mocracy and the Chicago Title andTrust Company.4. The business of tailors was to beprotected (Freedom of the Press) buttheir customers were to retain somerights (Chiefly the right of petitionfor redress).6. Cruel punishments should not beinflicted on members of the armedforces except in military areas. (Nosoldier should be quartered in a pri¬vate house.)6. The Constitution should beamended by:a. Civil War,b. Revolution.c. The W. C. T. U.d. John Marshall.7. A Capitol should be built some¬where. Most Americans wanted asubstantial structure, but a minoritywanted a flimsy, temporary structure,these were known as the Loose Con¬structionists.Our information on the framing ofthe Constitution comes from “TheRole of the Swizzle Stick in AmericanHistory”, a doctoral thesis by Wil¬liam R. Wambaugh, yet unpublishedby the Northwestern UniversityPress.Ellen Baum and Don ShieldsTraveling BazaarIt’s all very hush-hush and all that,but if the current campus rumors aretrue (and we hope they are) we’re tosee a revival of Blackfriars comeSpring.. .It’ll be a needed shot in thearm and according to the rumors per¬mission has already been draggedthrough more than half the channelsnecessary for official support from theUniversity.. .There are still those ofus on campus who remember “I’ll Al¬ways Be a Sophomore” and “Include. ✓Me Out” (done in collaboration withMirror’s last year of production) and though this year’sshow won’t be done in the traditional manner it’s stillBlackfriars.. .Since it’s a little late in the season tohave a student-written production it is tentatively plan¬ned to do Clare (I HATE that man) Booth’s “The Wom¬en” with the usual all male cast.Interfraternity Ball, the spoiled darling of the Au¬tumn Quarter social season, has been traditionized againthis year because there seem to be enough affiliated mento guarantee a large turnout.. .Last year, when thenumber of Greeks hit an all new low, I.F. threw open itssacred doors to the campus at large, and as a furthersop thrown to the barbarians, it was made informal...However now that the various houses have been fattenedby substantial numbers of pledges only fraternity menand their invited guests will be sold bids...

Social Committee registered theird::nce at the beginning of the quarter when it was notat all apparent that there was going to be an Interfra¬ternity Ball...Since I.F. is highly selective this year asto its guests and Social Committee sponsors all-campusaffars we’re hoping that neither will suffer in attendance.Last week-end we think will go down in history.. .youcouldn’t set foot anywhere on campus without steppingon a party of the Sadie Hawkins variety.. .Sigma’s par¬ty at the Phi Gam house was one of elaborate propor¬tions that frequently overflowed to U,T... .Dotty Duncanand Ed Storer were Mammy and Pappy Yokum...(andby the way those two are to be married in ThorndykeHilton, Dec. 20th)...Lyn Hill (freshman beauty queenof several years ago) appeared with Chet Lukey.. .She’sgoing to be hostessing for Pan American in the near fu¬ture...

Lois Wells appeared as Bountiful something-or-other in the latest in black sacks toting a baby undereach arm... Hairless Joe who in normal times is knownas Ward Spoerdsma terrified the crowd... Probably themost attention-consuming episode of the evening wasHank Goodman’s twining the toes of his size 12 feetaround the mike.The Wyvern tea-dance at Ida last Sunday made a lit¬tle hit of its own.. .It seems there was a surplus (actu¬ally a surplus) of tall dateable Annapolis men...AnnFlack was never looking better but strangely enoughFred Cimmerblatt was nowhere to be seen .. .All the Wy-vems we talked to were positively cooing about the ter¬rific party...Judy Downs demonstrated some of her hotjazz with Bill Erlandsoki...

Banks Street is an addressknown to every jazz record collectorthroughout America. This uniquebasement apartment on Chicago’snear North side is the dwelling place,of George Hoefer, Downbeat column¬ist and record connoisseur unparall¬eled. This basement establishment,which features two walls lined withHoefer’s 6,000 odd records, complete¬ly and concisely catalogued, has beenfor the past decade a favorite jaeet-ing place of local musicians and col¬lectors, and is an especially favoredhangout for all visiting firemen.Hoefer’s “Hot Box” is probably themost widely read jazz columnin the country and by its pres¬ence alone boosts the sales of Down-beat by the thousands. “The Box”himself lives up to every presupposedconception of the jazz record collec¬tor. A slender, dark haired individ¬ual with a light hearted, gregariouspersonality, he seems so natural apart of Chicago and jazz life as tohave been bom as such. He actuallywas raised in Chapel Hill, North Car¬olina, a small college town where hisfather is a professor. He attendedthe University of North Carolina,attained a degree in electrical engin¬eering and came to Chicago to workwith General Motors. This was theearfy thirties, that ripe period inChicago jazz collecting when everyjunk show and Negro home on Chi¬cago’s South side was a veritablegold mine of now-rare Louis, Bessies,Olivers and Hendersons, and itwasn’t long before Hoefer found him¬self in the scramble. He wrote veryinterestingly of his early collectingexperiences in last winter’s EsquireJazz Book.George’s jazz activities have forthe last three years been hard press¬ed under the strain of alternatingday and night war shifts at GeneralMotors. But there remains to be dis¬covered a local personality playing amore active, prominent role on theChicago jazz scene.THE CHICAGO MAROONLETTERS TO THE EDITOR(This column is open to any student or faculty member of the Universityof (Chicago. The only limitation set on letters is that they should be onsubjects of interest and concern to CHICAGO MAROON readers.)and will stop insinuating that propertreatment of animals is bunk, an atti¬tude that is both narrow and childish.(Signature withheld by request)The following notice has beenposted in the entry way to GatesHall: “The men at Cobb Hall arecomplaining about the red flan¬nels, etc. hanking in the windows!We have been asked to hang nomore laundry where it can be seenfrom outside.—Marge Chave.”To the Editor:Ever since their campaign of lastsummer your newspaper has been ri¬diculing the anti-vivisectionists in amanner which strongly implies thatnot only do you think anti-vivisec¬tion a crackpot movement, but alsothat you believe kindness to animalsto be a stupid idea of meddling busy-bodies. After reading your columnson the subject one must conclude thattheir smart alecky mention of “kill¬ing little dogs”, “wanton murder offlatworms” etc., is a protest not onlyagainst the anti-vivisection society,but also against humane treatment ofanimals in general.It is true that last summer the an¬ti-vivisectionists acted without knowl¬edge of the real facts, and withouttaking into account the requirementsof the medical profession; the samemay be said for a certain Chicagonewspaper.However, the society had the rightidea in that it is trying to bring aboutbetter treatment of animals.It is outrageous that in a civilizedcountry there are no laws againstabandoning, killing, or mistreatinganimals. Their young may be givenaway when they are too young to beseparated from the mother, they maybe cooped up in apartments wherethere is not adequate space for exer¬cise, and communities are allowed tokill stray ones instead of caring forthem until proper homes can be found.By implication the Maroon endorsesthese things, and if it is to be logicalit should have the i|ame regard forhuman welfare.The writer can see that if there isa genuine need for vivisection in themedical profession is should not beabolished. Doctors do not cut openanimals from a sadistic desire to tor¬ture them. But vivisection should beregulated and controlled by the gov¬ernment. Doctors should have to statewhy they need an animal before theycan have it, operations should be pain¬less, and only older animals should beused unless young ones are especiallyneeded.Neither faction seems to havebrought out these points. There hasbeen a lot of name-calling and stu¬pidity on both sides, but no attempthas been made to clarify the wholeproblem of animal treatment. It ishoped that the Maroon will see this.Cross CampusBy Catherine ElmesThe pouch of Bull Durham tobaccowas strewn over its last lap. Dampcigarette papers were sticking to thefaces and hands of surrounding Ma¬roon staff members.In the middle of the circle sat JohnLorin Welch, formerly of Blooming¬ton, Illinois, who was initiating his10-lesson course of instruction inrolling cigarettes.According to his own testimony,Mr. Welch was an accomplished ex¬ponent of this fashionable art at theage of seven years.It is rumored that it was becauseof this talent that he was electedchief of the Phi Gamma Deltas lastyear.No one knows quite how he waselected to Owl and Serpent, but hismembership in aforementioned honorsociety is fairly well established.Now he makes his living as presi¬dent of the Inter-Fratemity Council.President Welch definitely does notthink that fraternities are on the wayout. On the contrary:“The IF Council is trying to workout a better relationship with thecollege, and is trying to fit fraterni¬ties into the new college plan.“One proposal which should helpis the re-establishment of a studentscholarship fund.”About the new pledge class: /“This year’s pledges topped the 60mark. This is the largest numberpledged since the beginning of thewar. And all the men appeared verymuch interested in fraternities. Onthe whole, I think it’s a good class . ... no one was disappointed.”All of which is very encouraging.To the question: “Do you have anycomment to make on the girls’ clubpledges,” Mr. Welch after long andcareful consideration answered, “No.”Final notes: Jack was a Deweysupporter as of last Tuesday, and—when last seen—^was the proud pos¬sessor of a slightly shopworn pack¬age of Luckies.Letter to the Editor:At the beginning of the summerquarter there was a reshuffling ofthe CARILLON staff in what wassupposed to be an effort to improvethe magazine. The summer staffpresented and ratified a constitution,which, according to Mr. Schrieber,was accepted by the University. Init was the provision (Article III)that the Director of Student Publi¬cations was to nominate the editor-in-chief, managing editor, afid busi¬ness manager,, in consultation withthe staff. However, there was noconsultation with the staff.With regard to the lack of abilityof the present staff it would seem tome that the managing editor, work¬ing in conjunction with the editor andthe editorial associates, should de¬cide on the nature of the generalmakeup of the magazine, and thensubmit it to the faculty adviser, andthen submit it to the Director of Stu¬dent Publications for approval. Thisis the process set forth in the consti¬tution. The constitution also saysin article IV that “The business man¬ager shall have administrativeauthority over all matters pertainingto the financial conditions of CA¬RILLON commensurate with his re¬sponsibility of publishing and circu¬lating CARILLON.” However wefind the Director of Student Publi¬cations making all the arrangementswith the printers for type, set up,page size; for make up, cover design,etc. Not only is c'ontrol of the tech¬nical end of the publication enjoyedby the Director of Student Publica¬tions, but he also enjoys virtuallycomplete censorship over all material.Again I refer to the constitution: Inarticle VIII we find—“There shallbe a faculty advisor selected accord¬ing to the rules in ‘The Manual forStudents’. This faculty advisor shalladvise on matters of policy and make¬up, and help in the selection of ma¬terial to be published.” End of arti¬cle VIII. One might wonder what theeditors have been doing; it is safe tosay that the initial selection of ma¬terial and fair literary selection ofarticles has been engaged upon.What is happening here? We havea supposedly student magazine whichis being run virtually by some of thefaculty. The big question is, do thestudents want a magazine which ispublished by the faculty and appar¬ently going against all rules set upfor the magazine? A. H.To the Editor:We have a query in reference to anarticle published last week in yourpaper. Just why was it necessary forthe girl who claimed an attemptedattack upon her person, to escapeall the way to Gates Hall when shemight have rather easily eluded theassailant and begun the search forhim sooner by fleeing to Internation¬al House or Foster Hall, both verymuch closer to the scene of the at¬tack. Anxiously yours,M. B.E. E.E. L.Students.P. S. And just why haven’t weheard about the other such attacks?(Ed. Note: We have learned since lastweek's issue that the girl involved didgo to Foster before returning tO'Gates.We did not learn of the other attacksuntil too late for publicationt in eachcase.)And So To PressPag* Rv*I see by the papers that OPA brass hats are red enough toenrage a bull over the current cigarette shortage. The Price Admin¬istration bigwigs may be able to dole out the weed, and perhapseven to clamp a premium on the number of prospective cow punch¬ers that have blossomed forth as a result of the current crises,but they will confront the insoluable if they attempt to ration outthe wave of laugh and giggles that the current situation isproducing.At that the current crises is humiliating—iPs downright em¬barrassing. I fear that we have become peons of progress, ser¬vants to habit. No self respecting man with an iota of ^mptionwould plod from one counter to the next one vainly begging for ashot of nicotine and then cringing when a saucy merchant waveshim away, delivering instead a blast of contemptuous insolence.If he had the gumption of a groundhog, he'd take this heaven-sentopportunity to heart and junk the stuff. But opportunity has tobatter you to the floor and stamp on you before you're aware of it.Hence we read of such foreign antics as women forming long pewsto purchase Meerschaums and the gents line assembling to theright in qu^st of papers and Bull Durham.^^ich reminds me that it's most difficult to picture some ofthese sons and daugl^ters of the University as sons of the GoldenWest, galloping across the purple sage, twirling a lasso with onehand and rolling fags with the other. It's a stunt in itself to sitatop one of those pitching broncs; but even when standing onterra firma these same potential cow waddies find the papers un¬rolling as rapidly as they're stuck together, flaring up and pinchingtheir noses, and the tobacco scattering over the carpet.Have a chew?* By Abe KrashBook StuffTHE BATTLE AGAINST ISOLATION by Walter Johnson, pub¬lished by the University of Chicago Press,by Fred GottesmanFor what was probably conceivedas a complete history of the struggleagainst the isolationism which grip¬ped our country from 1920 until ourentry into the present conflict, Mr.Johnson’s book falls far short of itsideal. For one thing, except for a verysketchy summary of the events whichlead up to Congress’s rejection of theLeague of Nations proposal, there isa huge gap in the story of the strug¬gle to arouse the people of this coun¬try against the peril of fascism. Con¬sequently, the book deals almost ex¬clusively with William Alien Whiteand the Committee to Defend Ameri¬ca by Aiding the Allies.The implications here are most un¬fortunate. There were many groupsof sincere liberals, especially alongthe eastern seaboard, who were bend¬ing their every effort to inform thecountry of the inherent dangers offascism from the early days of Hit¬ler’s rise to power in Germany and allduring the Spanish Civil War. Mr.White’s own role as the “sage of Em¬poria” and the prophet of his peoplewas frequently marred by his con¬stant refusal to surrender his life¬long formula of merely staying justahead of midwestern middle-of-the-road public opinion.%Though Mr. Johnson limited him¬self rather sharply from the outbreakof war in Europe to Pearl Harbor,there are weaknesses even withinthese boundaries. The tendency toeulogize Mr. White, whose biographerMr. Johnson will become in a subse¬quent volume, distorts the historicalperspectives and values of “The Bat¬tle Against Isolation.” Moreover,the book itself is stylistically weak.The everlasting listing of names andthe redundancy of quotes from Mr.White’s files give the impression thatthe book is a cross between an abbre¬viated “Who’s Who” and a .glorifiedprologue to Mr. Johnson’s next twovolumes.The totality of Mr. Johnson’s fail¬ure is regrettable, especially becauseof the nobility of his intent.Betty StearnsSidelights on FootlightsThe Theatre Book of the Year, Arecord and an interpretation, GeorgeJean Nathan, $3.00, Knopf.There are times when George JeanNathan utters some very profoundstatements on the condition of theAmerican drama, and then there aretimes when he sacrifices all for theopportunity of being sarcastic andcompletely destructive. His newestbook offers, in the form of reviews,an analytic picture of the theatricalyear, 1943-44. It will again amusehis many followers with numeroussamples of the famous Nathan wit, aswell as startle them with some ratherremarkable conclusions.The review ’ of “The Voice of theTurtle”, to which he awards the prize,(his own approbation), for the bestcomedy of the year, is one of the mostinteresting in the book. His insightinto the construction and final aud¬ience appeal of the sex comedy isshrewd and thought provoking.Light, however, was thrown on theother side of the critic in his write-upof “The Cherry Orchard”. Althoughhe thought Motiey’s costumes were thebest of the season he had nothingfavorable to say about the produc¬tion itself. But instead of pointingout the weak spots in the interpreta¬tion, almost three pages were devotedto what were obviously personal prej¬udices. Even in George Jean Nathanthis type of “panning” is representa¬tive of poor critical method.Mr. Nathan states in his introduc¬tion that the season was on the lightentertainment side and was intermit¬tently satisfactory in that directionbut negligible in drama of any altitudeand definite importance. On the sub¬ject of the more serious attempts, hesuggests, when discussing Lillian Hell-man’s “The Searching Wind”, thathot wrath is the province of cheapmelodrama. Worthy drama calls forat least a portion of equanimity, coolreflection, and philisophical poise.These characteristics, while foreign tochaotic times, are at least a happyomen for the future.Mr. Nathan’s remarks on “Othello”,“Jacobowsky and the Colonel”, and“Winged Victory”, which by the wayare listed for Chicago this year, aretoo meaty to delve into here. Of thefifty to seventy-five odd plays re¬viewed, all are definitely worth read¬ing, for chuckles as well as Nathan’silluminating treatment of the arts ofthe theatre.(Mr. Nathan's worth-while book isnow available at the University ofChicago Bookstore.)B.

For thebenefit of those who aren’t alreadyfamiliar with this scholarly seriesit should be said that UAnthologieSonore is a series of volumes con¬taining recordings of significant musicfrom before the eleventh to the endof the eighteenth centuries. ^Ordinarily available only in com¬plete volumes, the release of the in¬dividual discs by the American dis¬tributor, The Gramophone Shop, Inc.,of New York, affords an opportunityto fill in some major gaps in recordcollections. The Bach Concerto is acase in point. Formerly available intwo versions on domestic discs withthe two Schnabels playing it on thepiano, and with Manual and William¬son doing it on twin harpsichords,this is now the only available perfor¬mance. It is a pleasure to say thatthis is an overwhelmingly satisfyingperformance. The reproduction ofthe harpsichords is clear and cleanwithout the jangle which usually ap¬pears on domestic recordings of theseinstruments. The strings afford awell-balanced background. Reproduc¬tion surfaces are prewar in standard.The J. C. Bach Quintet is a fineexample of mid-eighteenth centurychamber music. Ingratiating andcharming, without the triteness ofmany works of the period, the musicis a pleasant work which does notbecome boring with repetition. Re¬production and surfaces of this disccompare favorably with prewar discs.The actual recording of both works isabove reproach.—W. R.
