CAPTAIN CARPENTERNELSON H. NORGREN, Half-back NORMAN PAINE, Quarter-backTHE NEW STANDS ON OCTOBER 25The University of ChicagoMagazineVOLUME V NOVEMBER, 1912 NUMBER IEVENTS AND DISCUSSIONElsewhere we print the letter of Mr. Julius Rosenwald to the Boardof Trustees, in which he offers for the building fund a quarter of amillion dollars. In June the Board of trustees set aside$200,000 for the permanent improvement of MarshallField, a work which is now going steadily forward. Mr.Rosenwald's gift, which was altogether unsolicited, looks toward theraising of half a million more for other buildings including the threemost urgently needed, namely, a woman's gymnasium (possibly includ­ing a club-house), a building for the departments of Geology and Geog­raphy, and a building for the classics. Work on all three will be begunwithin two years. We shall give in the next issue an account of therecent large addition to Ryerson, which is now steadily in use. HarperMemorial Library, dedicated last June, is also now in use, for its primaryservice as a home of books, for administrative purposes, and for class­rooms. It focuses upon itself the whole south view of the quadrangles,and completely alters the old aspect of things. When the work uponMarshall Field is done, the north view will be equally changed. Withintwo years the alumni of 1906 who have not since returned will find ithard to visualize the quadrangles at all, We advise them to comeback and take a look.Meanwhile, let us forgive a little disturbance. Such rapid growthmeans, necessarily, some temporary chaos. Some books are inaccessible;many are hard to find; and as for the appearance of Marshall Field, theless said the better at present. It is very doubtful whether either the fenceor the grandstands are completed by the time of the Minnesota game.But there are, and will be, accommodations of a sort-"Yea, room for all3The NewBuildings4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEwho come," as the poet has it. And next spring, and afterward, thevery look of the old field will draw crowds. Marshall Field will besurpassed in size by 'other athletic grounds, but in beauty by none,certainly, in the West. Can you believe it? It is true.The College of Commerce and Administration has been in existencesince 1898. In the last year, however, since the results of DeanMarshall's three months' trip of investigation and hisThe College °df executive application of his ideas have begun to show, itCommerce an h . · f ·Administration as come to occupy a position 0 much greater Importanceto the undergraduates. All students having 9 or moremajors, who register in this college, come under Dean Marshall's directpersonal supervision. The work of the college is graded as follows:1. The Trade and Industry Division, where the courses are arranged with referenceto the needs of those who expect to engage in the various business pursuits suchas accountancy, banking, brokerage, foreign trade, insurance, etc.II. The Secretarial Division.III. The Commercial Teaching Division.IV. The Charitable and Philanthropic Service Division, for those expecting to servein charitable organizations, playground work, settlement work, child-welfareagencies, civic organizations, social research, etc.V. The Public Service Division, for those expecting to serve as staff members inbureaus of labor, in tax commissions, in public utility commissions; statisticians;workers in efficiency bureaus; factory inspectors; investigators for specialinquiries under federal, state, municipal, or private authority, etc.The degree in Commerce and Administration requires not onlyspecial sequences of courses, but a high standard of performance."Their interest in their work is professional in character and accordinglythey should be judged by professional standards." It is too soon nowto speak of results. Perhaps in an article on the College, soon to bepublished, Dean Marshall will venture upon prophecy. At presentseventy students are enrolled in Commerce and Administration.The total registration of students for the Summer Quarter of 1912was 3,531, of which number 1,762 were men and 1,769 were women.This is an increase of 282 over the summer registrationfor 1911. The largest increase was in the GraduateSchools.' The total number of different students for the year from JulyI, 19II, to July I, 1912, was 6,506.The figures for the autumn quarter are not yet finally compiled.Up to October 21 they were as follows:AttendanceEVENTS AND DISCUSSION 5----------------1--- -- _135 144 279 286 ... 7 ...155 48 203 202 I ...--- --- --- ---290 192 482 488 6238 237 475 460 IS ...603 429 1,032 976 56 ...34 50 84 158 ... 74--- --- --- ---875 716 1,591 1,594 .. . ... 387 9 96 102 ... � �:C:II 8 19 16 ...15 15 19 ...35*--- --- ---II3 17 130 172 ... 4228 8 36 5354 55 4222 22 252 3 IIII II 6--- --- --- --II7 10 127 137 ... 10100 3 103 12041 41 5725 I 26 353 I 4 4--- --- --- ---169 5 174 216 ... 4220 237 257 209 48I.

The loss in the Law Schoolis in part the ordinary year-by-year fluctuation; in part the fact thatprosperity has made business attractive to an unusual number of I9I2graduates everywhere, It is interesting to note that the Harvard LawSchool shows a similar but much larger falling-off. On the whole, con­sidering the steady upward trend of our scholarship requirements, thefigures are entirely satisfactory.At this time of writing the eleven has played three games and wonthem all-Indiana, I3-0; Iowa, 34-I4, and Purdue, 7-0. The test of theseason, the Wisconsin game, is still in the future, andprophecy would be unwise. The practice season openedSeptember 20 with all the Conference colleges. Of last year's teamCaptain Rademacher, Sauer, and Kassulker had played out theirstring. Whiting and Scruby had left college, and Goettler wasineligible. This left, except for Captain Carpenter at tackle, a newline to be developed. Sellers, Canning, Freeman, and Harris of lastyear's substitutes were available, however, and Whiteside of the I910team, who was out of college teaching in I9I1. Of the Freshman squadthere were available for the line Des Jardiens at center, Miller andScanlan guards, and Vruwink, Huntington, Skinner, and Baumgartnerends. Behind the line were Paine, Norgren, Kennedy, and Pierce oflast year's regulars, and Lawler of the substitutes; to whom were addedMarston Smith, Coutchie, Gray, Bennett, and Parker from the Fresh­man squad. It looked from the start as if the line would be weak andthe back field satisfactory, and such has proved to be the case. DesJardiens has well filled Whiting's place at center, and Vruwink andHuntington are better than any combination of ends of last year. ButWhiteside cannot quite take Scruby's place, and Sellers is too light,Freeman too slow, and Scanlan too lazy to be acceptable substitutesfor Rademacher. On the whole, the line is not strong. Bennett hasbeen played at tackle as well as full-back, but though strong, fast, andwilling, knows too little about the game to be first class. He should bea star next year if he is kept in the tackle position. In the backfieldPaine at quarter is better than before-a good field general, a hardFootballEVENTS AND DISCUSSION 7tackler, intelligent, and endowed with the spirit that always does a shademore than is humanly possible. Norgren, too, is better than last year;his punting has been especially fine, and he has a happy faculty of escap­ing injury in spite of his terrifically hard playing. Kennedy, by contrast,has been hurt all the time. He is heavier, stronger, and faster thanNorgren, but has not been able to show what he can really do. Pierce,too, has been handicapped by a stiff leg, in which he caught cold the firstweek. Nevertheless, he has played splendidly. In the Iowa game atthe end-of the third quarter the score was I4-I3 in favor of Iowa. Pierce,who had been saved, went in at full-back, arid made three touchdowns infifteen minutes. Of the new men, Gray's eligibility has hung in thebalance, and in consequence he has not been played. He is almost, if notquite, first class-a strong, fast runner, a beautiful dodger, and as good apunter as Norgren. Coutchie and Smith are acceptable, but no more, sofar. Bennett was a disappointment in the Iowa game.The new game has proved interesting as Mr. Stagg has the men playit, but on the whole a retrogression to the old line-smashing type.The forward passes have been numerous and well executed; "Paine toV ruwink" is almost as effective a transfer as "Tinker to Evers toChance." There is almost no end-running; some center-bucking, butnot a play through the guards; and slide-plays off tackle innumerable.To make and to meet such plays big strong tackles are required; Chicagohas one in Captain Carpenter, but so far lacks the other.Emil Goettsch, '03, has been made head resident physician of thePeter Bent Brigham hospital, in Boston, which upon its completion thisfall will surpass in general design and facilities anyother general hospital in existence. The result of the$5,000,000 bequest of Peter Bent Brigham, it will be theresearch hospital of the Harvard Medical School, directly across theway from which it is situated. Dr. Goettsch was the valedictorian ofhis class in Davenport (Iowa) High School in I899, and S.B., Universityof Chicago, I903, with election to both Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi.He was Senior College Scholar in Anatomy, I 90'3 ; Fellow, I 904-5 ;Assistant, 1;906-7; Ph.D. in Anatomy, I906, his thesis being a study ofthe glands of the aesophagus in representatives of the different mam­malian orders. In I907-9 he was a student of medicine at Johns Hopkins,from which in I909 he received his M.D. From I909 he was assistant insurgery and in charge of the Hunterian laboratory at Johns Hopkins Uni­versity; in I9II he was made assistant resident surgeon at Johns HopkinsHospital. His advanced work at Chicago _..-was under the direction ofDr. EmilGoettsch8 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEDr. R. R. Bensley, who first stirred his enthusiasm for research. Sincegoing to Johns Hopkins he has worked principally with Dr. HarveyCushing, now of the Harvard Medical School, and has dealt with theanatomy, histology, function, and pathology of the pituitary body.He has published articles in the American Journal of Physiology and theJohns Hopkins Hospital Bulletin (with Dr. Cushing), and in the AmericanJournal of Anatomy (with Dr. W. E. Dandy). Dr. Goettsch intended,as a high-school boy, to go to the University of Iowa and study law.By accident he met Captain Walter Kennedy, '00, who preached Chicagoso eloquently that he came here instead, shifted from law to medicine,and at 29 holds one' of the most desirable positions for medical researchIII the world.A change, small in itself but likely to have important results, has beenmade in the arrangement of the Alumni Office at the University. Thisis the introduction of a salaried clerk who will give her�:::�ffi.ce entire time to the Alumni work. Heretofore the officehas had to depend upon student assistance. To the vari­ous students who at different times have devoted their efforts to thekeeping of records and the other alumni work, the gratitude of all alumniis due. They gave generously of their time and energy, and the futurework of the office will be based hugely on the results of their labors. Butthe time has come when the undivided attention of a trained worker wasneeded. The records are becoming more elaborate every year and moredifficult to control. The change was imperative, and it has been made.The work of preparing a new Alumni Directory is now in progressand will be pushed forward as rapidly as possible during the winter. Itis planned to have the volume ready for distribution in October, I9I3-Question blanks will be sent out to all alumni, but in the meantime thework will be greatly facilitated if all readers of these pages will send inas soon as possible corrections and al tera tions to be made in the Direc­tory of I9IO. Especially all changes in address since that book was issuedshould be sent in at once to the Alumni Secretary. The chief difficultyin work of this character is to find the graduates of whom the institu­tion has lost track. No .greater service could be performed by alumnithan the sending in of their own addresses and those of their classmatesearly in the year.N early one thousand alumni were on the membership roll when theschool year closed in June. Some of these memberships have nowexpired, but they are being rapidly renewed, and it is certain that themembership for the coming year will greatly surpass all previous records.NEW MEMBERS OF THE FACULTYERNEST HATCH WILKINS, PH.D., Associate Professor ofRomance Languages, took his A.B. degree at Amherst College in1901, his A.M. at the same institution in 1903, and his Doctorate atHarvard University in 1910. From 1900 until 1904 Mr. Wilkins wasinstructor in Romance Languages in Amherst College; from 1901 to1904 he was also instructor in Latin. His interest shifted to ItalianArt and then to Italian. In 1906-7 he was instructor in Italian andSpanish in Harvard University. From 1907 until his appointment toan associate professorship in the University of Chicago he was instructorin Romance Languages at Harvard. In addition to his valuable experi­ence as a teacher, Mr. Wilkins has gained some knowledge of the joysand trials of authorship as the author of Articles on Boccaccio and thejoint author of the Dante Concordance. He is also a member of thecommittee appointed to settle Grammatical Nomenclature. ProfessorWilkins is a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity.Dr. William D. Harkins comes to the University as Assistant Pro­fessor of Chemistry from the University of Montana where he washead of the Department of Chemistry from 1901 until called to thisUniversity. In 1907 Dr. Harkins took his Doctor of Philosophy inchemistry at Leland Stanford Junior University. His work and careerhave been characterized above all else by his ability as a teacher and hisintense interest in research. During his stay in Montana he was theexpert consultant for the Farmers' Association in the big lawsuit againstthe smelters, resulting from the damage to farm lands from the arsenicin the smoke emitted from the smelteries. Dr. Harkins treated the prob­lem involved from an original scientific point of view and made his firstrecord as investigator by this work. Subsequently he spent a year in theresearch laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology andworked on questions of solubilities of salts. His work in this field hasled to the discovery of important new truths primarily connected withsalts of the type of sulphates, lead salts, etc. In 1909 Dr. Harkins spenta half-year at the Institute for Physical Chemistry at Carlsruhe, Ger­many, working under Professor Haber, one of the most eminent Germanphysical chemists, who has since been called to the directorship of the910 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEW MEMBERS OF THE FACULTYKaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin, a foundation for research in chemistryanalogous to the Pasteur Institute's field in biology. When Dr. Harkinsaccepted the call of the University of Chicago he refused a much moreremunerative call on the part of the United States government, basinghis decision on the opportunities for research and advanced work whichthis University offers to men of his stamp. His success as a teacher andhis standing in research promise great success. He can present elemen­tary chemistry in a clear way, emphasizing the problems of the day andof the future and thereby stimulating his classes as wellas instructingthem. His main work will be in general chemistry and inorganicresearch.Dr, Josephine Young studied science at the Northwestern Universityfrom 1890 to 1892. In that year she entered the Women's MedicalCollege of the same University to study medicine and took her in 1896. In 1896 Dr. Young became an interne at Cook CountyHospital and remained there until 1897, when she accepted the positionof Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Women's Medical College-aposition which she held until 1900. From 1901 to 1903 she was instructorof Gynecology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons. From 1903to 19II she was Assistant Professor in Pediatrics and from 19II untilcalled to the University of Chicago as Medical Adviser to WomenDr. Young has worked with defective children in the Department ofNeurology at Rush Medical College. While engaged in the above work,Dr. Young found time to act as lecturer to the Social Hygienic Com­mittee of a women's club, as examiner and lecturer for the operatorsof the Chicago Telephone Company, as one of the medical examinersfor the Board of Education of Chicago, and as one of the medical instruc­tors of the Chicago Board of Health. IITHE IMPROVEMENTS ON MARSHALLFIELDAs was announced in the July nu.mber of the Magazine, the Trusteesin June appropriated two hundred thousand dollars for the im­provement of Marshall Field, by the building of a new grandstand anda cement fence. The demolition of the old fence was begun on July I.It had stood since 1893, when it was erected, in part, at least, by thestudents of the University, led by Mr. Stagg. The new wall will be ofreinforced concrete. It is to have a general height of 15! feet; 14 feetat Ellis Ave., and 17 feet at Lexington Ave., so as to be adapted to thegrade of 57th St. Every 18 feet buttresses relieve it, each with a socket.for a 15-foot flag pole. The ticket booths will be set into the wall atthe different entrances, at the corner of 57th St. and Lexington Ave.,57th St. and Ellis Ave., 57th St. and Greenwood Ave., 56th St. and EllisAve., and 56th St. and Greenwood Ave. The new grandstand stretches466 feet along Ellis Ave. It is 86 feet, 2 inches wide, and 57 feet highat its highest point. In all there are twelve sections, each of which hastwo entrance wells. The total seating capacity willbe 8,250. At theextreme north and south ends of the stand are circular towers, havinga diameter of 28 feet. The first floors of these towers are to be used asteam rooms, the second floors as ladies' toilet and rest rooms, fitted withrocking chairs and every other possible convenience. Toilet rooms andlavatories for men will be placed at both the north and south ends of thestand. The main room underneath the stand will ultimately be fittedout for handball and racquet courts. The space under the front of thestand will be used as a tool-room and workshop. Here will be stored allthe paraphernalia for the up-keep of the field. On the face of the standwill be 96 sockets for removable electric light poles, giving opportunityfor illumination for evening entertainments.The main entrance to the stand is on Ellis Ave. between 56th and 57thStreets where there is a large vaulted vestibule with ticket cages on eitherside. At the east end of this vestibule are four entrance turnstiles andtwo exit turnstiles. A short flight of steps beyond the turnstiles leadsup to the center section of the stand, and a corridor leads away in eitherdirection to the more distant sections. Those who have seats morethan a third of the way up the stand ascend the stairway to an upper12IMPROVEMENTS ON MARSHALL FIELD 13corridor leading to the middle section. From this corridor another flightof steps leads to the promenade deck at the extreme top. The seatsare arranged in a parabolic curve, and each step has a slight tilt to thefront, so that all dust and dirt can be washed down by opening theflushing pipes at the top of the stand. The seats themselves are planksraised four inches from the cement. Ash will be used, and the manythousand people who have in the past suffered from a too close attach­ment to their seats on a hot day are expected to give thanks.Extra seats to the number of almost four thousand can be placed infront of the stand. The bleachers on the east side of the field will seatmore than six thousand more, so that without temporary stands at theend, eighteen thousand people will be able to see the games. It isplanned ultimately to replace the bleachers on the east side by a portablesteel structure, which can be moved back and forth, and so give roomfor the baseball diamond, as in the past. This steel bleacher, however,is not likely to be built in the near future.CONTRIBUTION OF MODERNSCIENCE TO THE IDEALINTERESTSITHEBY HENRY CHURCHILL KING, D.D., LL.D., Se.D.President of Oberlin CollegeMen have had much to say in theyears past of "the conflict of science andreligion"; but speaking now, even fromthe standpoint, not of the scientist, butof the philosopher and theologian, canwe see that modern science has a greatand genuine contribution to make to theideal interests?We may well take as our startingpoint Herrmann's definition of the morallaw: "Mental and spiritual fellowshipamong men, mental and spiritual inde­pendence on the part of the individual:tha t is w ha t we can ourselves recognizeto be prescribed to us by the moralla w."So Herrmann gives an idealist's defini­tion of the ideal; and may be said, atthe same time, to express the essence ofthe scientific method and spirit. Soclose are the ideal and the scientific.There are always two problems con­cerning any phenomenon: What is itsmechanical explanation? What is itsideal interpretation? How did it cometo pass? What does it mean? Bothare absolutely essential, as means andends; and yet they are often thought tobe necessarily antagonistic. But wemay even see that they are not onlysupplemental, but that scientific explana­tion in its development has a great con­tribution to make to the ideal intereststhemselves, both in the means affordedand in the spirit required.Or if one looks at the matter from aslightly different angle, one may see thatthe two great inner characteristics of ourtime are the scientific spirit and method,and the social consciousness-represent­ing here conspicuously the ideal interests;and the hope of the age lies in the thor­ough and persistent interpenetration ofthe two-the scientific spirit and method, and the social consciousness. Now inthis essential interworking, what hasmodern science especially to contributeto the ideal interests?I. First of all, modern .science hasenormously increased the resources avail­able for ideal interests. Through sci­ence's progressive conquest of the for­ces of nature, and the pressing forwardof scientific in vestiga tion, the power, thewealth, and the knowledge of the modernworld have registered a stupendousadvance. Men have come to believethat, because of these enormously in­creased resources of power and wealthand knowledge, hopeless drudgery, in­evitable deficit, and paralyzing ignoranceare not a necessary portion of man's lot.Possibilities for the race are now reason­ably within reach in all these directions,hardly dreamed of earlier. But theyare, nevertheless, only possibilities.2. Modern science, thus, in the secondplace, brings to the ideal interests a greatchallenge. In these tremendous resourcesmade available, it is virtually saying tothe ideal interests: Can you rise to thesepossibili ties? Are you training menworthy of these resources, and capableof mastering them? Or have theseresources come too soon? An especialchallenge is thus brought to all educa­tional forces: Are you training men andwomen to own their possessions, andnot to be owned by them? Are youdisciplining a generation to be capable ofpre-eminent self-control? and to thisend, are you permeating their wholebeings with interests great enough andideal enough to dominate all thesema terial resources? Are you making itcertain that the men and women whogo out from college and university areI Summary of an address delivered on the occasion of the Eighty-fourth Convocation ofthe University, held in the Leon Mandel Assembly Hall, August 30, 1912.14MODERN SCIENCE AND THE IDEAL INTERESTSHENRY CHURCHILL KINGPRESIDENT OF OBERLIN COLLEGEConvocation Orator, August 30, 1912 15I6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEto be able to rise above the peril of thelower attainment, tlie enthralment of thelesser good? Are you making goodnessin teresting ?3. Modern science has, also, given tothe ideal interests, vision. of a far largerand more significant world. Because,especially, of what modern science hasachieved, we live consciously in a worldenormously enlarged to our conception;more and more markedly unified; notstatic but everywhere dynamic, and inprocess of evol u tion; and at all stagesof the evolution, law-abiding. No onecan thoughtfully enter into this convic­tion of an enlarged, unified, evolving,law-abiding world, without the recogni­tion that here, too, modern science isbringing to the ideal interests the neces­sity of training men to enter intelli­gently and unselfishly into a world life,and into the all-embracing plans of God.The very end of education, as Huxleypoin ted ou t, is intellectual. discernmentof the laws of life, coupled with thesteady fashioning of the. will and affec­tions into obedience to these laws.4. This would mean, in the fourthplace, that modem science is bringingto 'the ideal interests the one great methodof scientific mastery in all realms, and sogives hope of large achievement. Thediscernment of law, we have come to see,means insight into the secrets of theuniverse, into the abiding ways of God,and points the way to that intelligentco-operation with him, that gives assur­ance of mighty achievement; for now"the universe is on the side of the will."Here lie the significance and the hope ofour great modem social" surveys." Forhere the scientific spirit and the socialpassion are notably interpenetrating.5. But, perhaps, the very best gift ofmodem science to ideal interests is thegift of the scientific spirit itself. It meansvastly more than moral and religiousworkers for the most part seem yet to have conceived, that in this whole great,powerful department of human endeavor,a spirit, in its very essence moral, shouldbe imperatively demanded, and provingitself out, as it were, by the laboratorymethod. For the scientific spirit de­mands that a man should face the factwith complete open- mindedness-shouldsee straight; should report exactly;should give in the outcome an absolutelyhonest reaction upon the situation inwhich he finds himself. Here are hum­ble open-mindedness-the quality of thefirst Beatitude, intellectual integrity, thepassion for reality. One is remindedinevitably of the insistent demand ofJesus for utter inner integrity of spirit.And the whole prodigious achievementof modem science is a demonstration ofthe fundamental principles .of the teach­ing of Jesus. For he demands perpetu­ally that a man shall see for himself,shall choose for himself, shall come intoa truth and a life that are genuinely hisown. Herrmann thus only reproducesChrist's thought when he insists that themoral law prescribes not only "mentaland spiritual fellowship with men" butalso "mental and spiritual independenceon the part of the individual." Or, ashe puts it, in the religious realm: "Re­ligious tradition is indispensable for us.But it helps us, only if it leads us on tolisten to what God says to ourselves.Real faith consists in obeying this wordof God." Every ideal in terest has boththe right and the duty to rejoice in thewidespread demand for the scientificspirit. For this marks one of the world'sgreat moral-and even religious-achieve­ments.In the recognition of this significantfivefold gift of modern science to theideal interests, there is a hearteningpromise of an increasing unification . ofthe intellectual and spiritual endeayorof mankind.THE UNIVERSITY RECORDThe President's Convocation Statement»-The various reports for the Universityyear closing June 30, 1912, have beencompleted during the past two months.It will be noted that this is the twentiethfull year of university work since theopening, October I, 1892. The reportsshow the year on the whole to have beenthe most successful in the twenty years'history of the University. The totalnumber of different students on the rollsfor the year was 6,506, as against 6,007in the previous year. It may be of inter­est to know that the total number ofstudents for the year 1892-93 was 540.Of course these totals for the past twoyears include students who have been inresidence during the Summer Quarteronly. The total number of students inthe graduate and graduate-professionalschools holding college degrees for theyear was 1,9.41. The total number ofalumni for the twenty-year period is6,970•The finance reports for the year 19II­I2 are equally encouraging. The totalexpenditures on the annual budget were$1,517,775.38. With this large expendi­ture the receipts, nevertheless, were com­mensurate, and yielded a small balance onthe right side of the account. Of courseit is not the purpose of the Universityto accumulate large surpluses, as thefunds should be in use for the educationaland scientific purposes for which theywere given, but it is the policy of theUniversity never to expend money whichit has not, and therefore never to haveeven a small deficit. It is interestingto note that tuition fees paid by studentsprovide a little less than 39 per cent ofthe expenditures of the University. It isnot always realized that a large part ofthe cost of the University is providedby the endowment funds, and thereforetha t only a small part-less than 40per cent-of what is received by thestudents from the University is repaid byJ[ Presented on the occasion of the Eighty­fourth Convocation of the University, held inthe Leon Mandel Assembly Hall, August 30,19I2• students to the University in the form oftuition fees.The Summer Quarter which closestoday may also be said to be the mostsuccessful in the history of the University.The total number of different studentsenrolled during the two terms is 3,531,as against 3,249 in 19II, a gain of 282.Of the 3,531 students, 1,424, or nearlyone- half , have college degrees and areenrolled in the graduate or graduate­professional schools. The reports frominstructors also, I may say, uniformlyspeak of the high quality of the students,and the excellence of the work done.While, as is well known, the quarter hastwo terms, and students may attendeither, at the same time it is interesting toknow that 1,804 students have been inresidence throughout the entire quarter,which indicates the seriousness andsolidity of the work done.At the Convocation in June, notice wasgiven to the University that the Boardof Trustees regarded it as especiallyimportant to undertake at an early dateand to complete within the coming twoyears four building projects. Thesewere the gymnasium for women, thebuilding for the departments of Geologyand Geography, the Classical Building,and the improvement of Marshall Field.Progress has been made in realizing theseplans already. The improvement ofMarshall Field is under way now, andthe new stands will be in condition to usein the autumn. It proves imperative toundertake this improvement first for thereason that the old stands are no longerusable, indeed having been very properlycondemned by the Building Departmentof the city. The new stands will be ofreinforced concrete, and a wall of thesame rna terial will inclose the field.The various buttresses will have flag­staffs, and the entire improvement willchange the most distressing eye-sorewhich we at present have into one of ourmost beautiful and attractive features.In the second place, during the currentmonth the Board of Trustees receiveda communication from one of its members,18 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEan eminent citizen of Chicago, Mr. JuliusRosenwald. This communication con­tained a gift to the University of $250,000toward the building fund. This gift isvery properly and wisely conditioned onsecuring at least $500,000 more, in orderthat the three buildings remaining beprovided for in full. This very generousgift by Mr. Rosenwald, it may be added,was unsolicited and entirely spontaneouson his part, which renders it all the moregrateful.

It is our hope thatthe sum allotted may prove sufficientfor at least four scholarships .....This appropriation can be made onlyfrom year to year ..... It is our inten­tion, however,.... to continue itfrom year to year. In the selection ofcandidates, we believe that the spirit ofthe testator's provision requires thatconsideration be given to character andthe promise of its development evenmore than to scholarship. The inclina­tion and ability to mingle with and knowone's fellows and the possession of traitstending to leadership among them wereas highly valued by the testator as zealin the pursuit of knowledge. Whennominations are made it will be presumedthat these various considerations havebeen given due weight, and that thecandidates are, in the judgment of thePresident of the University or the com­mittee charged with selection, those mostdeserving of aid and from whom the24 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEbest return may be anticipated in char­acter and scholarship."This very generous proposal was signedby General Strong's children, who arethe trustees of the fund: Ella StrongDenison, Mary Strong Sheldon, JanetStrong Jameson, and Gordon Strong.The following resignations were regret­fully accepted:Dr. Charles P.

I noticethat you seem to think the revolt amongthe alumni, which he believes exists, athing of negligible dimensions. Possi­bly you may underestimate it. In thecourse of my work and play, here justoutside of Chicago, I meet a number ofthe men who have been out from fiveto ten years, and I am struck often by therealization of how little the Universitymeans to them and of how little they careto know what is going on there. I admitthat my own guilt on this count is con­siderable. There is a revolt, but it islargely a passive revolt, a revolt of indif­ference.To find an explanation of this has beena matter of some thought with me, andalso of some investigation. It has beenilluminating to find the real opinion ofUniversity life held by the alumni that Iknow. Analysis of their replies to ques­tions casually put leads me to believethat the trouble is just this: they believethat while they were in the Universityno one cared much about them. Theyfeel that they were people who went toChicago, not people who were of Chicago.Looking back on my own undergradu­ate days, after the brief half-decade whichhas intervened, I find that I can remem­ber with vividness only two of the facultyas having had any appreciable influenceupon the formation of real love forChicago. One was in the English de­partment; the other taught mathematics.The essential thing, however, is not thatthey taught these subjects; it is that theytaught me. They seemed to care enoughabout me in those, my very callow days,to try to know me, my aims, my thoughts,and to lead me, as an individual, and notmerely as a stereotyped thing called an"undergraduate," into the beauties ofwhat they had to teach.Other memories are not so sweet.There is the crusty professor who toldhis class that he did not care to knowsocially those whom he had in his classes.And there are the ones who lectured to their classes with no apparent knowl­edge of those classes as other than a massof people who had paid their fees. Andthere is the one who told me, when Iasked for a thesis back, after laboringfor weeks upon it, that he had such largeclasses that he never read the thesesbut destroyed them untouched. I re­member the dean who used to spend asmuch as two minutes guiding my un­practiced mind in the choice of electives.I do not blame him, poor fellow. He had,I believe, some two hundred callowyouths to minister to.Because the classes were such cut-and­dried, "business-like ,> affairs, there was,all through the course, very little of thatearnest, informal, heart-to-heart discus­sion which I have since found in manyother institutions of learning which Ihave visited. We students did not knoweach other well enough to open our heartsand minds and wrestle with one anotherabout the problems introduced to us inour lecture-rooms and laboratories. Ourwork was a dry, routine'matter, nearlyunrelated to our own innermost thoughtsand affections. Naturally we did it asquickly and easily as we could, and turnedour attention to other things.We were after things real, thingsinteresting. We were seeking comrade­ship, the virile reality of friendship­and self-expression. Some of us wentin for athletics. Some of us becameengrossed in the social side of things, opento us by" virtue of our city residence orour city acquaintanceships. Some ofus specialized in so-called studentactivities. Personally, the last was mypath toward realities. I notice there isanother correspondent in your issuebefore me who attacks the Blackfriars,The attack is in large measure justified.F our years in the plays and a share inwriting one of them make me know someof the evils as well as or better than hedoes. But I also know why I went intothose things. I did not know it then.What I was really seeking was comrade­ship and also a chance for self-expressionunder the guidance of someone who wasinterested. We had a coach in those26 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEdays, a man who since has gotten ratherfar ahead in the professional producers'ranks. He used to swear at us. Noprofessor ever did that to us. He calledus names and vilified us. Professorswere always polite. But he was ourfriend, and we instinctively felt that hewas interested in us and in our work.And we could not say that of most of ourofficial guides. I know that I learned asmuch from him, of that sort of knowledgewhich imparts self-development ratherthan the imparting of information as Idid from most of my work. 'I am still in touch with things under­graduate in a quiet and unofficial way.And I find that the old conditions stillcontinue, much the same as five yearsago. Some few break through the crustand manage to find reality, but mostof the rank and file are stumbling alongthe same old path. They do not workany more than they have to. Increasedfaculty strictness squeezes a little morereluctant proficiency from them. Butthey do not love it, any more than wedid. They magnify the importance ofsports and comic operas, and all the restof i t. Th�ir hearts are in the wrong place.Of course In all this I am speaking of theordinary, healthy man, not of the warpedbook-worm.This I find to be about the complaintof nine out of ten of the graduates Imeet. After they get out their interestsgrow. The trivial things they loved incollege lose their interest. And theinterest in, and love for, the realities oflearning have never been aroused withinthem. Naturally they drift into· theranks of the indifferent. They aid thepassive revolt.In my profession, that of priest, wehave a moral maxim, for use in advisingpenitents, .that a sin is best overcome bya distraction of attention from it, andthat distraction is to be attained by anemphasis upon something good which ismore fascinating. If the officials of theUniversity want-and who doubts thatthey do want-to really adjust the valueso.f the University so as to stop overdevo­tion to nonessential things like athleticsand operas and so on, what they mustdo is devise some method of so interestingthe students in the delights of learningthat they will forget the lesser delightsof these things. And the only way itcan ever be done is by devising somemeans for the faculty and the studentbody to know one another. Meanwhile, until the rulers find a good way to dothis, it might help if the instructors ofthat strange animal, the undergraduate,would remember that in handling himand .developing him int? what he may,possibly, become, what IS needed is lesslearning and more love.BERNARD IDDINGS BELL, '07. . October I5, I9J2Editor of u. of c. Magazine:We little thought, when you statedin the June number that Honolulu­Chicago goers expected to get together,that we would so soon record the mostbrilliant gathering of Chicagoans everassembled in the Pacific Ocean, or any­where else outside of the states.R. H. Allen, '05, editor of the HonoluluStar-Bulletin, has given you details of ourmeeting of October 3, when ProfessorWillett's round-the-world class of tenjoined with a similar number of Chica­goans here in a lunch at the UniversityClub.Not the least important member wasDean R. Wickes, '05, Ph.D. 'I2, whoarrived here on Professor Willett'ssteamer. He and his bride, FannySweeny Wickes, are remaining here acouple of weeks, receiving commissionas missionaries of the Central UnionChurch here, to the North China Missionof the A.B.C.F.M. The meeting em­phasized a point which I hope will reachthe eye of every Chicagoan likely towander this way, namely, that everyinstructor or student of the Universitycoming here ought to feel in duty boundto make himself known to some of us,that we may gather some new rays oflight from the ceriter of wisdom, or singa hymn over him, or ride him on a surf­board or something.
