ROBERT ANDREWS l\IILLIl\:.\:\The University of ChicagoMagazineVOLUME V MAY 1913 NUMBER 7EVENTS AND DISCUSSIONIn recent meetings of the Alumni Council and of the College AlumniAssociation there has been much discussion of the proper date for AlumniDay. The difficulty has been that Convocation Week isAlumni DayThis Year so crowded with events that it has been found practicallyimpossible to fix on a day in which the alumni exerciseswill not conflict with other things. It was announced some time ago thatfor this year the exercises would be held on the Saturday before Convoca­tion, that is on June 7. It is now found that this gives rise to severalserious conflicts, particularly with the undergraduate festival and withthe Interscholastic Day. At a meeting of the College Association heldApril 24, it was decided, in view of all the circumstances,' to hold thealumni exercises this year on Convocation Day, June 10. This wasfound to work satisfactorily last year, and seems to be the best arrange­ment possible for the present year. However, a committee of theCollege Association has the general question in hand, and it is hopedthat before long a readjustment may pe made which will give the alumnia day to themselves.The discussion of the proper day for the June meeting of the CollegeAlumni Association has been more vigorous this spring than ever before.� There is a widespread belief that one day should be setAlumni Day in . ..the Future aside for the alumni only. The plan suggested by theCouncil was this: to put Convocation on Friday, the lastday of examinations, instead of Tuesday; and to give the next day,Saturday, over to the alumni. The objections raised to this plan werefirst that it would compel those taking degrees to remain three dayslonger than had hitherto been required and second, that it would conflict227228 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEwith the beginning of work in the Summer Quarter. It was then sug­gested that the alumni should meet on the Saturday before Convocation;but after a long correspondence this was found impracticable becauseit would interfere with the arrangements for the Interscholastic meet,Marshall Field and Mandel Hall both being in use for Interscholasticpurposes. At present, unless the matter is pushed, the same situationseems likely to confront the Association next year. Mr. Stagg finds nodate except the first Saturday in June available for the Interscholastic;the University finds no date except a Tuesday available for Convocation;and the alumni more or less drop between.A beginning has been made in what may ultimately prove thesalvation of our June alumni meetings, namely class reunions. Theclasses which would ordinarily come together this yearare those of 1898, 1903, 1908, 1910, and 1912. Up tothe present time effort has ever been madeto bring together classes as such in June. Of course the class systemdoes not (officially) exist at Chicago, and even the students often deter­mine with difficulty, from the maze of majors and quarters, just whenthey will emerge. But, particularly of late years, class organizations ofa sort have developed, and even developed solidly; and some alumnithink the time has come to utilize them, as similar organizations areutilized nearly everywhere else. Various members of the reunion classestherefore have been asked to act as chairmen, to suggest and put ineffect plans for calling together the graduates of their respective years.For 1898, F. E. Vaughan has been appointed; for 1903, Thomas J. Hair·But the classes of 1908 and 1910 have developed much more. elaboratemachinery. An executive committee of nine men from 1908 has beenhard at work. It includes Arthur Allyn, Paul Buhlig, L. D. Fernald,Arthur Goes, William F. Hewitt, Alvin Kramer, Max Richards, FrankTempleton, and Arthur Vail. Arrangements for the girls of the classare in the hands of Helen T. Sunny. The plans include a class dinnerand a separate reception. 1910 has also its executive committee, includ­ing J. J. Pegues, A. L. Fridstein, Bradford Gill, Frank M. Orchard,and Harlan O. Page. Its plans have not been announced, but will alsoinclude a separate class dinner.ClassReunionsOne of the great defects of most of our present alumni organizationsis their failure to provide a place for the man or woman who attendedthe University but took no degree. Some of the strongestand most loyal adherents of Chicago are among thisgroup. Those who have attended for only one or two quarters, unlessThe "Ex-"EVENTS AND DISCUSSION 229they happen to live in Chicago and have seen something of the Universitysince they left it, are not usually much interested; but those who havespent a year or more here, and then have been forced by circumstancesto withdraw, are often as eagerly interested in Chicago's welfare as theactual graduates. Yet our Directory does not include them, our noticesmiss them, our meetings, they sometimes feel, are not meant for them.Some arrangement ought speedily to be made whereby they might beregularly reached, and the tremendous potential capital of their loyaltyconserved to the University's, and to their own, advantage.In this connection, however, a point made by Professor Lovett inhis talk at the meeting of the Alumni Club seemed to many present veryinteresting. The standard of undergraduate scholarshipat Chicago, he pointed out, has risen steadily in the lastfive years. He agrees with Dean Angell that it is now,on the whole, as high as can fairly be expected; but heinsisted that in raising it everyone concerned had been benefited-thestudent, the University, and particularly the body of alumni. A degreefrom the University of Chicago represents, in by far the greater numberof cases, hard and intelligent work. The casual drifter, the man withouta purpose, finds his troubles multiply so rapidly that he is soon unableto force a way farther through them. But on the other hand the clea.r­headed healthy young man (or woman) who does go on to the conclusionof his work for a degree acquires equal respect for himself and affectionfor the institution which assumes him ambitious and demands his best;and after graduation he finds his affection growing as he realizes more andmore clearly the good sense of hard training. The classes of '96 to '99have a feeling for the University that no others, perhaps, can quite share.In their day Chicago was an experiment; they were pioneers, educational"forty-niners"; years only brighten the luster of their scholastic adventure.But since then, what alumni are the most eager in their loyalty? Thelast five classes, without much question; the men and women who sawthe incidental displaced by the systematic, snap judgment by rigid require­ment, academic entertainment by training. Professor Lovett is right; theproudest alumni are, as a rule, those who take their University seriously.Scholarshipand theAlumniThe SpringFestivalThe date of the annual Spring Festival has been changed from lateMay to early June-June 6, to be exact. Originally the Spring Festivalwas the plan of Mr. Stagg, who hoped to crystallize generalundergraduate enthusiasm into pageantry and procession.It has always been an interesting occasion; but last year,so the Undergraduate Council seems to feel, it was overshadowed by the23° THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEathletic events which accompanied it. This spring, therefore, aftermuch debate, a new scheme has been adopted. The old features-theclass floats, the dancing, and the ball game-will be retained, butthe floats and the dancing will be considerably elaborated. The proces­sion will center round "The Spirit of Chicago," a float to represent allthe classes as one; and in addition the four classes, the graduate school,and various organizations, such as the combined dramatic clubs, willhave floats. An interfraternity relay, and other athletic diversions,including a game of push-ball, will be added. At bottom, the plan isan attempt to consolidate near the end of the quarter the various largeaffairs which have hitherto spread out over several weeks and to wideninterest in the festival. The schedule as planned is as follows:June 5, W. A. A. Banquet. Interclass Hop.June 6, Spring Festival. Holiday. Interfraternity Sing.June 7, Interscholastic Meet.An interesting feature of the Spring Quarter has been the verysuccessful publication, on alternate Wednesdays, of a supplement to theChicago Evening Post, by the women of the University.Women and The plan originally suggested by the Post was to have aNewspaperWork supplement brought out one week by Chicago women,the next by Northwestern women, and so on. TheNorthwestern authorities preferred to employ both men and women fortheir issues; but the women of Chicago have been contented to runalone. Their efforts-superintended by Nathaniel Pfeffer, 'II, formerlyeditor of the Maroon, now with the Post-have been strikingly successful.Articles on Alice Freeman Palmer, by Ruth Reticker, 'I2; Dean Talbot,by Martha Green, '13; and Hindle Wakes, by Augusta Swawite, '10,were of a high type of excellence. The poetry and the editorial com­ment have been equally effective. In fact, by their dignity, their suavity,their humor, and their good sense the women have done much to showto the general public the best side of the undergraduate here.The ninth annual production of the Blackfriars, The Pranks ofPaprika, was given at Mandel Hall on Friday and Saturday evenings,May 2 and 3, 9 and 10. The book and lyrics were by"The Pranksof Paprika" Donald Breed, '13, and Roderick Peattie, '14. Breed isfrom Freeport (Ill.) High School; was managing editor ofthe 1912 Cap and Gown, president of the Junior class, president of thedramatic club, editor of the Literary Monthly, and a University marshal.Peattie is a Junior, a son of Mrs. Robert (Elia) Peattie. Both Breed andEVENTS AND DISCUSSION 231Peattie are members of Alpha Delta Phi. The music of the productionwas chiefly by Lewis Fuiks, '16; R. E. Myers, 'II, John Rhodes, '10,William Achi, '14, W. B. Bosworth, '14, and Henry Barton, 'IS, alsocontributed. The cast included the following:Billy Henderson, Robert Tuttle, '13; Pimiento, Milton Morse, '14;Pancho, Roland George, '16; Don Miguel, Henry Shull, '14; Wilhelmina,Harry Bogg, 'IS; Paprika, James Dyrenforth, '16; Rosa, HaroldTerwilligar, '15; Marie, George Dorsey, '16; Maid to Paprika, RalphCornwell, '16; Oswald, Craig Redmon, '16; Troubadour, L. P. Payne,'13; Smith, Harold Goettler, '14. The cast was remarkable for thefact that six out of thirteen were Freshmen. The performance wason much the same level as in former years; if anything superior. Thedancing of Rogers, 'I2, and Parker, 'I2, was missed; but the acting ofthe cast as a whole was perhaps better than ever before. Thirty-eightmen were in the chorus.On April 30, one day before it had been announced to come out,appeared the 1913 annual, the Cap and Gown. It is a volume of 500pages, in solid binding, and better printed than usual.It contains also six successful color-inserts, the work ofProfessor Sargent's pupils in the College of Education.The book as a whole is admirably planned and edited. The managingeditors were William H. Lyman and John B. Perlee, the business mana­gers Thomas E. Coleman and W. P. Dickerson. The literary editor wasRalph W. Stansbury, and the art editor George S. Lyman. All areJuniors except G. S. Lyman, who is a Sophomore. The Lyman brothersare members of Beta Theta Pi; Perlee of Phi Gamma Delta; Colemanof Chi Psi; Dickerson of Alpha Delta Phi; and Stansbury of Sigma Chi.The managing editors for next year are Clyde E. Watkins and HaskellRhett, the business managers (a competitive position) will be FrederickW. Byerly and Donald S. Delany.The "Capand Gown"An interesting class reunion occurred in the Quadrangles on April 23.The members of the class of 1862 of the first University of Chicagotook luncheon together, at the Quadrangle Club, fifty­'62 Reunionone years after their graduation. The class was the secondone graduated from the old University, entering in 1858, the yearafter the institution opened. There were only three members-JohnSaxton Mabie, George Washington Thomas, and James Goodman. Thelatter two are residents of Chicago. Mr. Mabie has made his home inCalifornia for the last twenty years. He has been a Bible student andteacher, and having reached the age of seventy-six, concluded to make232 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEa little trip of nine months and visit Palestine, "the land of the Book,"and incidentally see Egypt, Asia Minor, Greece, Italy, Germany, France,Switzerland, and the British Islands. Mr. Mabie wrote Secretary Good­speed of his plans and the reunion of the class was arranged. There wereseveral remarkable things about this reunion. All the original membersare still living fifty-one years after their graduation. All of themare still in vigorous health after passing their seventy-second birthdays,one of them having reached seventy-six. They have always been warmTHE CLASS OF '62personal friends. And all were present at this fifty-first celebration. Itwas a class reunion somewhat difficult to duplicate.The class spent about five hours together with much delight. Theyfinally stood up before the camera, and Messrs. Thomas and Goodman,the young men of the trio, bade Mabie, the old man, bon voyage as hestarted at the age of seventy-six for the other side of the world.The DurrettThe University has just purchased the Durrett collection of Ameri­cana-a library of thirty to forty thousand volumes of books, of anequal number of pamphlets, and of a great mass of rareand important manuscripts treating especially of thedevelopment of the Southwest and the Ohio Valley tothe close of reconstruction times. The books bear upon the history ofCollectionEVENTS AND DISCUSSION 233most of the border states rather fully, while every volume ever pub­lished in or about Kentucky is said to be in the collection. Some of theworks on Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, such as John Smith'sHistory, first edition, Haywood's Tennessee, and Filson's manuscriptHistory of Kentucky, are estimated to be worth from two to three hundreddollars a volume.But the library is particularly prized by the Department of Historyas a help in writing the history of the old South and the early West.From this point of view it is not surpassed by any private or publiccollection in the Middle West, with one possible exception. The manu­scripts bearing on the relations of the United States and Spain duringthe formative period of the national life make an absolutely uniquetreasure; the same may be said of the Haldimand transcripts whichcover the same period. Of journals and diaries of the western pioneersand state builders there are many of the greatest importance, such, forexample, as the autobiography of George Rogers Clarke and the journalof Thomas Walker, the first Englishman to explore the MississippiValley.Of no less value to historians is the large list of ante-bellum news­papers, covering pretty closely the period of 1798 to 1860. Some ofthese are of especial importance-those which describe the maneuversof Aaron Burr during the years 1805-7 when he was trying to build forhimself a state in the West. One of the papers is the file of the Whigorgan, published under the aegis of Henry Clay at Maysville, Ky.,during a long period. With the exception of the Vincennes Sun, nowin the Indiana State Library, there is no more important newspaper filein this section of the country.In bringing this material to Chicago the University has sought toadvance the cause of historical investigation, not only among its ownprofessors and students, but also in the city as well, for it is well knownthat, because of the great fire, our libraries are weak in materials on theearly national development. It may also be said that in gathering sucl;lrare documents here in fireproof buildings the University is trying topreserve the sources of our history which" are so likely to be consumedin the many fires which we have the habit of tolerating in all parts ofthe country. Members of the Department of History are enthusiasticabout their new accession, and they greatly appreciate the action ofthe President and Trustees in making the large appropriation necessaryfor the purchase.SCHOLARSHIP OF FRATERNITIES INWINTER QUARTERThe following table shows the comparative standing in scholarshipof the various fraternities at the University for the Winter Quarter:Fraternity Rank in Rank in I Percentage Percentage Number inWinter Autumn in Winter in Autumn ChapterAlpha Tau Omega ...........

The general testimony is, however, thatstudying is easier in winter than at any other season of the year.The table includes among the fraternities all pledged men. Itexcludes law men (whose grades are not available) and graduate students.It shows that the most marked advance is in the case of Kappa Sigma(from an average of 1.23 grade points to 2.31), Chi Psi (from an averageof 1.48 to 2.32), Delta Upsilon (from an average of 2.49 to 3.02), andAlpha Delta Phi (from an average of 2.25 to 2.96). The only markeddecline is in the case of Psi Upsilon (from 2 .48 to 1.98) and Beta ThetaPi (from 3 . 15 to 2 .70). The rank is really of little value in many cases;between 6th place and r ath, one man often determines the position.Again, Delta Kappa Epsilon, which made an average gain of .28 gradepoints, actually sank from 13th place to 14th. But the rise or fall in234HONORING PROFESSOR MILLIKAN 235general percentage is of considerable interest. A study of the individualchapters seems to show conclusively that the present standard of eligi­bility for initiation (three majors, with an average of C- for everymajor taken) is too low. Very few men who are admitted to fraternitieson such an average remain more than one year, some not even for theentire year; their effect is consequently one of demoralization.HONORING PROFESSOR MILLIKANRobert Andrews Millikan, Professor of Physics, was on April 23 giventhe Comstock Prize of fifteen hundred dollars, for his researches inelectricity, magnetism, and radiant energy. The formal presentationwas made at Washington by President Woodrow Wilson, following theaward of the prize by the National Academy of Science. In announcingthe award, R. S. Woodward, president of the Carnegie Institution, said:Our late colleague in the Academy, General Cyrus Buel Comstock, member of theCorps of Engineers of the U.S. Army, won distinction as chief engineer on the staff ofGeneral Grant during the great civil conflict. But in the pursuit of his arduousvocation he found time also for the cultivation of science and he is not less distinguishedfor his contributions to geodesy than for his services in the evolution of our common­wealth. His devotion to physical science is witnessed in his last will and testament, bywhich he conveyed to the Academy a fund whose income may be used for the promotionof researches in electricity, magnetism, and radiant energy. Under the terms andconditions of this fund the Academy now makes its first award, under the designation"Comstock Prize," of the sum of fifteen hundred dollars, .. to Professor RobertAndrews Millikan of the University of Chicago.It is a far cry from the adumbrations of Democritus and Lucretius to the moderndoctrine of atomicity. But the demonstration of this doctrine, dimly foreseen morethan twenty centuries ago, is the greatest achievement in physical science of the pasttwo decades, and one of the greatest in the history of science. It is now proved notonly that what we call gross matter is atomic, but that what we call electricity has alsoa granular or atomic structure. With rare acumen and with rare experimental skillProfessor Millikan has furnished the most direct and the most convincing proof of theexistence of electric atoms or elements. He has shown how to count these elements inany small electrical charge; he has rendered them almost tangible by showing in theclearest manner their visible effects; he has determined with superior precision thefundamental constant represented in the electrical charge of these atoms; he hasdemonstrated the equality in electrical charge of the positive and the negative ions inionized gases; and he has made important additions to our knowledge of the molecularconstitution and the kinetic phenomena of gases. For these contributions to knowl­edge and for the original and refined methods of research he has developed and sosuccessfully applied, the Academy honors him with this first recognition of superiormerit as provided by the founder of the Comstock Fund.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO .MAGAZINEProfessor Millikan is a graduate of Oberlin, of 18g1, and received thedegree of Doctor of Philosophy from Columbia in 18g5. Oberlin honoredhim with the degree of Doctor of Science in ror r. He came to Chicagoas a student and presently as assistant ill physics in 1896, and afterpromotion through the various intermediate grades was made professorin 1910. He is a member of the Executive Council of the AmericanPhysical Society, and advisory .editor of the Physical Review. WithAssociate Professor Henry G. Gale, 'g6, he is author of a high-schooltextbook which has had an unprecedented and remarkable success, beingnow in use in more than half of the high schools and academies in whichphysics is taught in the United States. He married, in Ig03, Miss GretaBlanchard, Chicago, and has two sons. He is a member of the PhiKappa Sigma fraternity, for the local chapter of which he acts ascounselor.At the same meeting of the Academy of Science Professor LeonardE. Dickson of the Department of Mathematics was elected to member­ship in the Academy-the eighth of the University faculty to be sohonored. Professor Dickson was graduated from the University of Texasin 1893, and was given the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by Chicagojust three years later. He returned here as Assistant Professor ofMathematics in 1900, became Associate Professor in H)07, and Professorin Ig10.THE EARLY HISTORY OF THE"DAILY -MAROON""The Daily Maroon, Founded October 1,19°2."These words, standing at the head of the editorial column in the Uni­versity of Chicago newspaper which has been published every Universityday since the opening of that Autumn Quarter, record the inaugurationof a student activity which is quite generally considered to be of all themost universal in interest. The Daily Maroon came as the result of ademand felt and expressed with growing force ever since the founding ofthe University. This is the need for some medium through which thevaried interests in the institution may find expression and the manygroups within the Quadrangle community be brought together III acommon feeling of University solidarity.Three attempts to meet this demand were made in early years. Thefirst daily, named the University News, appeared October 17, 1893.The second effort was undertaken by means of a tri-weekly. In adoptingthe University color as the name for that paper-the Maroon-thepublishers made a contribution which has come down to the publicationsof the present day. The first appearance of the tri-weekly took place onMay 15, 1895, and the last on March 20, 1896. The third endeavor wasmade in the spring of 1900, when a newspaper called the Daily Maroonwas published from May 7 to 9; suspended by the Faculty Board ofStudent Organizations; resumed publication May 21 and discontinuedJune .. 19.During that spring most of the men who shared in establishing theDaily Maroon of today were in college, and the first managing editor andone of the associate editors were appointees on the reportorial staff of theattempted publication. Consequently the experiences in connectionwith that endeavor proved to be valuable lessons. The paper, edited andowned by Earl D. Howard, '02, was so popular that the universality ofthe demand for a daily was emphasized. The temporary suspension,justified because the editors were duped into printing a supposed scandal,fixed for University of Chicago student-publishers a principle whichassures daily loyalty to the best interests of their Alma Mater.All three of the attempts enforced the vital point that, to live, thedaily must be thoroughly organized on a business basis and as a studentactivity.237THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe immediate movement which resulted in the present Daily Maroonoriginated during the Autumn Quarter of 1901. At that time Herbert E.Fleming, '02, University correspondent for one of the city papers, andmanaging editor of the University Weekly for that quarter, proposed toByron C. Moon, business manager and owner of the Weekly, that someplan be devised for developing the Weekly into a daily newspaper and amonthly literary magazine. They prepared some documents containingsuggestions and submitted them to President Harper. Both stated thatsome scheme of business management which would insure stability wasthe imperative requirement. The managing editor suggested officialUniversity business management, such as is carried out successfully instudent athletics. The business manager proposed that the Universitygrant a subsidy.These proposals were sent by the President to the Board of StudentOrganizations. A thorough faculty discussion followed. Professors whohad been editors of student papers at Yale, Harvard) and other institu­tions gave many valuable suggestions. The result of the discussion wasa definite expression of the sentiment that the University must neverofficially subsidize the organ for student opinion nor exercise a' censorshipover it. The papers were withdrawn and the movement was apparentlydropped.Toward the close of the Winter Quarter in that year, however, tenmen, on invitation of Mr. Fleming, joined in a determination to under­take the financial and editorial responsibility for publishing a dailynewspaper during the next college year provided the student body wouldgive them authority to do so. These men were: Herbert E. Fleming, '02;Robert L. Henry, Jr., '02; Charles W. Collins, '03; Walker G. McLaury,'03; Harry W. Ford, '04; Oliver B. Wyman, '04; Frank McNair, '03;Francis F. Tische, '03; John F� Adams, Medic; Adelbert T. Stewart, '04.They posted notices calling a mass meeting to be held May 15, "forthe organization of a new student activity." The object of the proposedmass meeting was explained to the Seniors by Mr. Fleming, the classpresident, and the '02'S were the first to go on record for the project.They unanimously adopted a resolution to attend the mass meeting asa class. The notice aroused considerable curiosity as the day for themeeting approached.In the meantime Mr. Moon had been working individually on plans.H@ had associated with himself Platt M. Conrad, '03, and Julian L.Brode, '05, in a stock company organized for the purpose of expanding theTHE EARLY HISTORY OF THE "DAILY MAROON" 239Weekly into a daily and monthly. Hence there were two movements onfoot simultaneously, but without avowed antagonism.From time to 'time, President Harper had shown great interest insuggestions for a daily. He had promised to attend the mass meetingand had been announced as one of the speakers. On the day before themeeting he invited Mr. Fleming and Mr. Moon to his office and pointedout the evident advantages of combination.The obstacle to be overcome lay in the fact that the ownership of theWeekly was vested in Mr. Moon, who had a considerable sum of capitalinvolved. In the early days of the University, it had been foundadvisable to permit the system of private ownership for the Weekly.The ten men working for the establishment of a daily held that thestudent body as a whole should own its publications; and they wereunwilling to buy the Weekly. But it was known to them that for sometime Mayo Fesler, '97, then secretary of the Alumni association, hadthought of proposing Alumni responsibility for a daily. He was appealedto as the man holding the key to the situation. Mr. Fesler expressed thebelief that the Alumni association would purchase � the Weekly fromMr. Moon.The mass meeting was held the next day, May IS, as announced.The students filled Kent theater to the doors. They adopted a resolutionoffered by Allan Burns, the cheerleader. By this resolution, the studentbody requested the Alumni association to purchase the Weekly; gave theten men who had called the meeting and Roy D. Keehn, '02, and Eli P.Gale, '03, whose names had been added to the list, authority to becomethe board of editors for the publication during one year and to select theirsuccessors on the merit basis; and recommended that the Alumniassociation name Mr. Moon as business manager.This plan did not meet with favor among the alumni, but its tentativeconsideration served as the means for progress in the movement. OnAlumni Day, a committee of fifteen was appointed by the association toconsider the plan. Toward the end of the Summer Quarter, after manymeetings, this committee was about to send out to the alumni member­ship an adverse recommendation. Mr. Moon thereupon withdrew hisproposition to the association and made a generous offer to the board ofeditors; in his proposal he assumed the risk of regaining his investedcapital from possible net profits to be earned by the proposed publicationsduring the first two years.On July 31, with Henry Gale, '96, of the alumni committee acting asadviser, Mr. Moon and Mr. Fleming, representing the editors, framed andTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEsigned an agreement which is the working basis for the Daily Maroon.This provides that the publication is the property of the student body,held in trust by the combined board of editors and the business manager.The financial responsibility is equally divided between the businessmanager and the board. The agreement provides explicitly that futureboards of editors shall be'selected on the merit basis, after competitionopen to all students in the University. This board, through an auditingcommittee, has access to the books; and elects the business manager, theretiring business manager nominating. With the execution of thisagreement the Daily Maroon is a self-supporting student activity.The first election was held and a general plan of editorial organizationadopted at a meeting of the board, June 13. Mr. Keehn and Mr. Collinswere elected executive editors for the Monthly, severing connection withthe Daily. The first executive editors elected for the Daily Maroon were:Herbert E. Fleming, managing editor; Harry W. Ford, news editor; EliP. Gale, athletic editor. It was provided that the other members shouldbe associate editors. The first seven associate editors were: Robert L.Henry, Jr., Walker G. McLaury, Oliver B. Wyman, Frank McNair,Francis F. Tische, Adelbert T. Stewart, and John F. Adams.In September Mr. Ford resigned to accept a professional editorialposition. Mr. Wyman was elected news editor and Frank R. Adams, '04,was elected to the board as associate editor. Mr. Gale resigned asathletic editor but continued as associate editor. Mr. Henry was electedathletic editor. Mr. John F. Adams resigned and Austin A. Hayden, '02,and a Junior at Rush Medical college, was elected as associate editor tofill the vacancy. As authorized in the mass meeting, the board providedfor representing the women students. Miss Cornelia S. Smith, '03, andMiss Julia M. Hobbs, '03, were elected as the first women editors.During the year several changes took place in the personnel of the board.At the opening of the Winter Quarter, to fill vacancies caused by theresignation of Mr. McLaury and Miss Hobbs, Walter L. Gregory, '05,was elected an associate editor and Miss Agnes Wayman, '03, to be oneof the women editors.Vol. I, No. I, of the Daily Maroon came from the pressroom of thenew building of the University of Chicago Press at 4 o'clock, October 1.The typesetting and printing were done by the University Press all year.Until March I, a force of twelve compositors on the fourth floor was readyto drop all other work and set type for the Daily Maroon. That springa linotype and an additional printing press were added to the equipmentof the Press to facilitate publishing the paper. From the first issue theTHE EARLY HISTORY OF THE "DAILY MAROON" 241typographical appearance of the paper attracted very favorable atten­tion. In fact the Daily Maroon has been printed in much better thannewspaper style. The arrangements between the Maroon and theUniversity Press were on a strictly business basis; and the fine printingmade the expense of publishing the Daily Maroon greater than that ofany other students' newspaper in America. The University gave theMaroon, as a student enterprise, an office in Room 7 on the main floorof the Press building; and this greatly facilitated editorial work. TheUniversity has patronized the paper as an advertiser at regular rates;but has not exercised a censorship over it either directly or indirectly.The plan of editorial management has been to adapt the system ofmetropolitan dailies as far as possible to the conditions in the Universityfield. The general principle has been to have as large a number ofworkers as possible with a minute division of labor every day. This isurgent, because the editors found that all other considerations must giveway to the necessity of rushing the copy. The news editor makes theassignments for general university news-gathering and edits manuscript;the athletic editor does the same for his field and writes editorializedcritiques on the athletic situation; the associate editors divide the workof copy-reading-that is, editing manuscript-writing editorials, andconducting departments. The managing editor's duty is to co-ordinatethese efforts.Special departments have served to give variety to the paper. Atfirst" Gargoylettes," an editorial page section containing a daily grist 01jokes, attracted a large part of the Maroon's constituency and comparedfavorably with the best humorous column in the city papers. Mr.Adams edited this department and contributed the larger part of the"Gargoylettes." Mr. Tische edited "The News from the Universities,"a department which has kept Chicago students in touch with Americancollege life. He also did the proofreading. Mr. Hayden edited "TheRush Medical Notes," sending news from the West Side so toned as toaid in the incorporation of Rush Medical College student life into that ofthe University. Mr. Gregory, besides editing manuscript, directed themakeup. Associate Editors Gale, Stewart, and McNair wrote editorialsand edited copy. Miss Smith was the society editor and Miss Waymanedited the women's' athletic news.The members of the first board united in an endeavor to lay a firmfoundation for building up the Daily Maroon as an institution. To thisend they held weekly board meetings Tuesday afternoons. At thesecouncils each member reported criticisms he had heard from subscribersTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEand made suggestions. The board's actions on all questions of policyin reference to news and editorials were binding on the executive editors.In order that future boards might have whatever permanent benefit thesediscussions afforded, a book of records was kept.Competition for membership on the staff of reporters and the boardof editors began with the first day of news-gathering. To increase theinterest in this competition the editorial board invented the Maroon star,a small five-pointed button finished in maroon enamel with gold border­ing and backing.The rule adopted was that any student making the staff of reportersmight wear the star during his term as a reporter and that a reporterwinning a place on the board might keep his star. During the AutumnQuarter of 1902 there were twenty candidates whom the editors calledHustlers, working to win the star. The staff for each quarter is of twelvereporters, at least two of whom shall be women students. Those whowon. places on the first staff were formally presented their stars at aMaroon Smoker, held in the Chi Psi lodge, January 10, the first Saturdayin the Winter Quarter. At that time the upper classmen on the staffI .made speeches declaring their determination to continue in the work sothat the Daily Maroon should live.The business manager and his assistants found the business men ina well-worked advertising field appreciative of the Daily Maroon as amedium for reaching the students in the University of Chicago world."The Maroon Daily World" was a name proposed for the journal of todayat the time of the sanctioning mass meeting. On further consideration,however, the editors and business manager concluded that they had nofear of the name developed in the experiments of the past. As the paperwent on in its growth toward the completion of Vol. I they often expressedthe conviction that the Daily Maroon would continue to be "PublishedAfternoons by the Students of the University of Chicago during theFour Quarters of the University Year," as long as there are Universitydays and University years.[N OTE.- The foregoing article was published, with slight differences, in the 1903Cap and Gown. It was anonymous, but is supposed to have been written by H. E.Fleming, '02. The Maroon is no longer published by the University Press, and is nownot continued in the Summer Quarter. In every other respect it is carried alongexactly the lines laid down eleven years ago.]THE UNIVERSITY RECORDInstructors from other institutions forthe Summer Quarter.-At the comingSummer Quarter of the Universitycourses will be offered by thirty-sixinstructors from other institutions, in­cluding representatives from the facultiesof Harvard and Johns Hopkins universi­ties in the East, Leland Stanford and theUniversity of Washington in the West,the University of Toronto in Canada,and Tulane University and the Univer­sity of Texas in the South.

Thechange from the University Club wasmade at the invitation of Harry J.Stone, '96, the manager of the LaSalle.Dinner was a buffet affair, eaten atsmall tables seating four and six. Thebaseball and track teams were guests ofthe Club.Speakers were the captains of theteams (Clarence Freeman, baseball;George Kuh, track; Norman Paine,basket-ball) ; John Schommer for thealumni; Deans Marshall and Lovett,and President Judson. The Presidentdiscussed the various activities of theUniversity as a whole. Plans for thenew classical building, he said, had beenapproved by the Board of Trustees, andwork would De commenced by July I.Sketch plans for the Geology building,and for the Women's Building, had beenpresen ted to the Board, and work uponthese was expected to begin before snowflies. . He spoke also of the purchase ofthe Louisville collection of historicaldocuments, and of the experiments ofthe Department of Physics in determina­tion of the rigidity of the earth-experi­ments which include somewhat elaborateexca vation near the Yerkes Observa­tory. Dean Marshall in a rapid andvigorous fashion outlined the work ofthe College of Commerce and Adminis­tration, and spoke briefly of its aimsand hopes. _ Dean Lovett declared thatthe constant policy of the Universityto make the training of its students lesscasual, and the application of its require­ments equal, must result in stimulatingthe alumni to greater and finer loyalty.The evening was enlivened by solo andduet singing, the principal performersbeing Miss Vera Stanley of the LaSallecabaret, assisted by R. C. Hamill, '99,and others. In the absence of PresidentRichberg, a letter from whom was read,Vice-President Arthur Goes took charge,and announced the election of the fol­lowing officers for the ensuing year:President, Charles S. Winston, '96;Vice-President, Arthur Goes, '09; Secre­tary, Alvin Kramer, '08. Chicago Alumnae Club.-No one whoheard " Spring Revels" suggested socasually at the February meeting of theAlumnae Club as the trade-name of itsproposed elevated vaudeville could haveforeseen how apt this name was to prove.The Spring Revels were revels indeed, andnot the only revelers were the singers anddancers on the too-little stage of theWhitney. The spirit of the players-thegood fun of the ballad singers and thechorus girls, the co-operation on stageand behind, when "lines" went wild,all this "esprit de corps" got across thefootlights. Back to the actors flew themessage that the audience was enjoyingitself and the reunion occasion. WhenEdna of I908 met Hazel of I909, whomshe had not seen since Convocation, whocared that it took Frank Parker andAlice Lee Herrick half an hour to dropback from Shaw to Milton? At nightbetween the acts, the Women's Glee Clubsang Chicago songs, while the baseballteam, eighteen strong, manfully occupiedboxes, but yelled not one yell at "thatwoman's show." At the close of theprogram, all Chicago sang" Alma Mater"against an orchestra that could notcatch the tune.Out in the box office, the FinanceCommittee had cause to revel-almost$600 cause, and no one can tell howmany stock-yards district little girls orcollege big girls will revel in the rightjob found for them by the VocationalGuide of the University Settlement orthe Chicago Collegiate Bureau of Occupa­tions, the beneficiaries of the AlumnaeClub.The mere program would have gratifiedan audience which was not content torevel in each other-would justify theconventional superlatives of the hometalent report. " Up Troublesome Creek"which opened the program set no troublednote. The act was a series of traditionalKentucky ballads staged at the Hawkinsfamily reunion over the precarious returnof the boys from the county jail. Therethey had learned some new ballads, somethat Mother knew long ago, and the familysang the old-time songs with an abandonthat gave no indication that the boysmight be recaptured at any moment.249THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe songs were winning then, but it isonly as the weeks go by, and one findsoneself whistling Fair Florilla, or patchingtogether verses of the plaintive storyof Lord Randal, that one realizes howcharming the ballads are. "Loughbrowghaz Kanby" was perhaps as low brow asMargaret Rogers and Phoebe Bell Terrycan be, but who dare call their "Recol­lections of the Future" low brow?Certainly the distortedly gowned Mrs.Terry on her futurist screen background,singing a cubist air to a post-impressionistaccompaniment, was the most timely bitof the day. "How He Lied to HerHusband," really much decenter (don'tyou know) than How She Lied, as it wasadvertised, is a typical Bernard Shawbit of life, with a delightfulcrisis in whichthe Poet, having lied to her husband,suddenly lies at her husband's feet,that Shaw husband who resents theyouth's denial that Mrs. Bumpus hasinspired his verses to Aurora. Themasque, L' Allegro, carried to the city anorganized campus act-it had been theleading feature of the Florentine Carnivalin February-and ended the afternoon inthe spirit of the revels, theHaste thee, Nymph, and bring with theeJest and Youthful Jollity"spirit of the poem we have all chanted.At the time when this issue of theM agazine goes to press it is still impossibleto give a complete financial report uponthe Spring Revels. The following state­ment however includes all of the chiefitems and is nearly enough complete tobe of interest. The total expenses sofar known amount to $46 I .60. Thegross income to date is $I,09I.90. Itis probable that the bills will increasemore than the item of income. But itmay be safely said that the profits on theSpring Revels will be not less than $500and probably not more than $600. Thisstatement ignores entirely the program,which contained sufficient advertisingmatter to pay for itself and produce acreditable profit for the Club. It isignored here because the money due uponit has not all been collected, nor hasthe program itself been paid for. In theprofit as set forth here is $70. 15 gainedfrom the candy sale. This was possiblebecause the candy was a donation, whichamounted to about $40.RUTH RETICKER, 'I2 Minnesota Alumni Club.-An informaloutdoor meeting of the Club will be heldSaturday afternoon and evening, May 24,at the home of President and Mrs.George E.

FULLER, JR., SecretaryJapan Alumni Club.-H. B. Benninghoff writes from WasedaUniversity, Ushigome, Tokyo, on March22, 1913:"The University of Chicago Club ofthe Empire of Japan, which usually holdsits annual meeting on Washington'sbirthday, met this year on the 8th ofMarch, in order to have the pleasureof meeting Dr. Henderson, who was atthat time in Tokyo. It was an occasionof unusual good fellowship, in whichtwenty-five former students of theUniversity met to honor the visitingprofessor, and renew our friendship foreach other in talking over the good olddays. The president of the Club,Dr. Asada, is, I believe, the first Doctorof Philosophy ever graduated from theUniversity. The great majority ofalumni are Japanese who occupy variouseducational and ecclesiastical positionsin Tokyo and other centers. Whereverthey are, they are a credit to our AlmaMater, living epistles of the Chicagoschool, which in these parts means aschool of a distinctive type as well asplace."One of the features of the eveningwas a University exhibit, which consistedof circulars, books, photographs, pen­nants, badges, and announcements.Three of the members are from the OldUniversity, and some of their picturesand reminiscences formed an interestingpart of the program."During the year we ha ve had thepleasure of meeting Dr. H.

Some of theseresponses will be incorporated in a generalreport on the subject to bepresented atthe annual meeting in June, and it ishoped that a somewhat extensive dis­cussion of the subject may be forthcomingat that time. If possible, t)1e Secretarywill have the proposed blank form forspecial registration of Doctors readybefore then, so that they may be mailedto members in advance of the meeting.It is very evident that the members as awhole believe in the propositions setforth by the Committee and that muchmay be done by co-operation along thelines suggested.C.

Defeat byMinnesota on April 28 (3-7) was unex­pected, but a 6-4 victory over North­western on May 10 still leaves Chicago inthe lead in the Conference at the presentwriting, May 12. The remainder of theschedule follows:May 14, Purdue at Chicago." 17, Illinois at Champaign." 2 I, Wisconsin at Madison." 24, Illinois at Chicago." 3 I, Wisconsin at Chicago.June 3, Purdue at Lafayette.For the April games the team was madeup as follows: Baumgardner, Carpenter,and Kixmiller, pitchers; Mann, catcher;Norgren, first base; Scofield, second base;Catron, short stop; Des J ardien, thirdbase; Gray, Stains, Harger, and Bohnen,outfielders. Capt. Freeman has beendeclared ineligible by the faculty, onaccount of trouble with his studies;Libonati and Cummins also. Carpenter,Mann, Norgren, Scofield, Catron, andHarger are veterans of last year; theothers are from last year's Freshmenteam. Gray is the football man whomade his reputation at Madison.Baumgardner has done all that wasexpected of him in the box. With Iowahe went in with the score 7-3 againstChicago, and held the Iowans down hit­less and runless for the remainder of thegame. N orthwestern and Indiana got arun apiece from him, both on errors.Kixmiller, another Sophomore, showssome promise. For seven innings heblocked Minnesota's attack, then weak­ened. Baumgardner went in cold, hitthe first batsman, allowed two singles,and so lost the game. The fault, how­ever, was not either his or Kixmiller's somuch as the team's. Eight errors weremade, enough to throwaway any ball­game. Baumgardner is big and strong,can pitch three times a week and be athis best, and should do better and betteras the season goes on. Mann catchesonly fairly well and throws wretchedly.ATHLETICSHis arm seems almost dead. DesJ ardien has been practiced behind thebat and will probably be used in some ofthe later games. He throws like a bulletbut is inexperienced and therefore slow.Norgren is doing only fairly well at first;in the Iowa game his work was ridiculousbut he is improving. Scofield at secondis better than he was last year, when hewas tried at short. Catron can becounted on for at least one error pergame; against Minnesota he made three.If he could overcome his habit of throw­ing the ball before he has stopped it hewould do better. Des Jardien at thirdbase fields well, and adds strength by hisspirit. All in all, the tall young man isone of the most excellent athletes Chicagohas had in years. Gray and Stains arevery fast, and fairly sure; Bohnen andHarger are slower, but not slow, and theyhit hard. The team as a whole is muchbetter in the box and in the outfield thanlast year, about the same at first andthird, and weaker at second, short, andbehind the bat. Mr. Page's coaching isexcellent. Games are played almostevery day with semi-professional teams,and the experience thus gained is valu­able. The outlook for the season is fair.There is not a first-rate team in the Con­ference this year, and victories anddefeats are likely to be common to all.Track.-The track schedule began onApril 19 with the races at DesMoines, inwhich Chicago (Parker, Breathed,Matthews, Kuh) captured first in themile relay in 3: 27�-. Illinois did not senda team. At Philadelphia, April 26, thesame four finished fourth in the mile relay.Illinois winning in 3: 22f, Pennsylvaniabeing second, and Dartmouth third.Thomas vaulted 11-6, but did not place.Ward qualified in the roo-yard dash,winning his heat in IO} seconds. Butfinished fifth in the final. The schedule isas follows:May 10, Northwestern at Chicago." 24, Illinois at Chicago.June 7, Conference Meet at Madison.The Interclass meet will be held onFriday, June 6, and the Interscholastic on255GEORGE A. DORSEY, '16, AS "MARIE" JAMES D. DYRENFORTH, '16, AS "PAPRIKA"UNDERGRADUATE AFFAIRSSaturday, June 7, the day of the Con­ference meet. The team is in generalcharge of Philip Comstock, 'I I; Dr. W. J.Monilaw is looking after the weight men.Tryouts were held on Saturday, May 3.Tennis.- The tennis schedule follows:May 13, Northwestern at Evanston." 16, East End Tennis Club at Cleveland." 17, Oberlin at Oberlin." 19, Ohio State at Columbus." 20, Ohio Wesleyan at Delaware." 29, Conference at Chicago.June 6, Ohio State at Chicago.The captain is C. C. Stewart, '13.Squair, '14, and Green, '14, are, withStewart, the backbone of the team.Sellers, '13, Coulter, 'IS, Baker, 'IS, andTolman, 'IS, are the other leading can­didates. Bohnen, 'IS, who played lastyear, is on the baseball nine, and PaulArthur Goodman, '14, has been electedcaptain of the swimming team. Thegymnastic team, under Capt. Parkinson,had an excellent season, defeating Illinoisin a dual meet and taking second in theConference meet. Merrill, Rhodesscholar next year, lost in fencing to theWisconsin representative. This was hislast appearance for Chicago, and his firstdefeat.The spring quarter on the quadrangleshas been so far an interesting one. Thevarious classes are all meeting once aweek for class luncheons, with largeattendances and great enthusiasm. TheUndergraduate Council is actively in­vestigating the "point system" of dis­tributing undergraduate officers, with aview to putting it into practice at theUniversity. The Dramatic Club re­peated, on April 19, its performance ofDon to an appreciative but again a small 257Hunter, '14, is ineligible. The Conferencechampionship is practically a certainty,as Armstrong of Minnesota, the usualstumbling block, has entered Harvard.Football.-The schedule for 1913 is asfollows:Oct. 4, Indiana at Chicago." 18, Iowa at Chicago.25, Purdue at Chicago.Nov. I, Illinois at Chicago." 8, Northwestern at Evanston.IS, Minnesota at Minneapolis.22, Wisconsin at Chicago.This includes the same opponents as lastyear. In arrangement, however, it isbetter, and indeed ideal. Only one gameis played at a distance, and the Wisconsingame, which should be the hardest, comeslast, and at Chicago. No spring practicewill be held.GENERALaudience. The Club has in the past yeardone the best work of its existence. TheBlackfriar performance, The Pranks ofPaprika, was staged May 2 and 3, 9 and10, to large houses. The LiteraryMonthly issued on April 30 a secondsuccessful number. The campus ath­letics have included an interfraternitybaseball series, a faculty-University ten­nis match; and a series of faculty­Senior baseball games not yet con­cluded. Unusually pleasant weatherhas contributed to the pleasure of theseason.The Senior Class propose as their giftto the University a relief map, in brasson cement, of the grounds and buildingsof the University. The map, if given,will be placed in Harper Court. I t shouldconstitute perhaps the most individualgift yet made by a class, and one of themost useful.ADDRESSES WANTEDInformation should be sent to Frank. W.
