B., '00; Ph. D., '05Born April 29, 1868; Died June 22, 1916The University of ChicagoMagazineVOLUME VIII JULY, 1916 .t\UMBER 9The Quarter-Centennial CelebrationFriday, June 2, the alumni and alumnaebegan to register at the various head­quarters. The alumni tent was set upjust south of Bartlett, the class tents onthe great vacant space across UniversityAvenue from Mandel Hall. Saturdaymorning all the tents were buzzing andthe quadrangles were full-largely withalumnae. The luncheon given in theIda Noyes Hall at half-past eleven by theChicago Alumnae Club was attended bymore than 800, many of whom were get­ting their first glimpse of the new build­ing. Noone. has a right to call thatluncheon disorderly, but it was distinctlyenthusiastic. At half past one the menbegan to gather in Bartlett to get theircostumes-paper hats and rosettes. Theboas, parasols and balloons which thewomen carried were distributed at IdaNoyes.The procession, in seven divisions,formed on University Avenue from 56thto 58th Streets and on 57th Streetwest of University Avenue. Theline of march was from Bartlettto Woodlawn, to the Midway, toEllis, across the campus, out throughHull Court to Stagg Field, and aroundthe track. The order included, after the Herald and the band, first President J ud­son and the invited guests, then the rep­resentatives of the Old University, andthen the classes in order. Nearly twothousand marched. A number of theclasses had individualized costumes, nota­bly 1911 ; and the class floats of 1907 (inwhich Arthur Bovee as President Judsondispensed diplomas in so lifelike a fashionthat the president himself was startled)and of 1912, the "Midnight special" train,were notable. Entering Stagg Field, theprocession wound around twice, and thendispersed to the grandstand to behold thecircus. This included first an automobilerace (on. the unbanked track!) whichfurnished plenty of thrills but no upsetfortunately; an elaborate and admirableexhibition by the university gymnasticteam, plus a scout drill; a chariot race;and "features" by the various fraternities.A silver cpp for the best performancewas by the ladies in Mrs. Judson's partyawarded to Sigma Chi for its burlesqueentitled "Oscar the Twoth, or the FlivverPeace Party;" but the popular verdictwas for "The Capture of Villa," by DeltaKappa Epsilon. Scenes of great variety,from "Harper Library, or Asleep in theStacks," to "the Willard-Moran Fight,"426 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAG:lZINEwere placed before the audience; and adozen clowns were as funny as they couldbe, which, except in the case of StellanWindrow, '17, was not so very funny.The circus ended about three forty­five, and the Waseda-Chicago ball gameimmediately followed. Waseda was badlyoutclassed, and Chicago won too easilyto disturb the spectators. The Japanesefielded well and ran bases well when theygot a chance, but could not hit.The tables for the dinner were set inHutchinson Court. The night was per­fect for outdoor dining, the Court beau­tifully lighted and crowded with 750diners, 'and the dinner was good. Thatthe service was slow was an added at­traction, for it gave rise to a clamoroushumor that justified Mark Twain's hav­ing been born in America. There were nospeeches, but there was much singing,and a perfectly enormous quantity ofrecitative. Just to the south of the foun­tain in the center the alumni of the OldUniversity were gathered; the classesfrom 1893 to 1900 sat in one large groupto the southeast, and the later classeswere at separate tables. James Sellers, '17, as the HeraldFollowing the dinner, the businessmeeting of the College Alumni Associa­tion was held in Mandel. PresidentSherer presided. Very brief reports werepresented to a packed house, by SecretaryMoulds, the editor of the Magazine, andHarold Swift, '07, chairman of the pub­licity committee. After the announce­ment of the election of officers, ScottBrown, '97, the newly chosen president, -took the chair, and after probably the.shortest presidential speech on record,The Procession Entering the FieldTHE QUAR.TER-CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION 427The May-Pole of 1906The 1907 Float President Bovee-Judson, 1907, Giving OutDiplomasThe Midnight Special of 1912428 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZIl\TEThe Procession on Stagg Fieldadjourned the meeting. The whole meet­ing lasted only half an hour; but it wasso well arranged and so hugely attendedthat it went in impressiveness far beyondany previous business assembly of theCollege Association. The general trendwas one of congratulation, and yet of be­lief that on this year's work, as on lastyear's, depended particularly the quicksuccess of the Association. The mo­mentum gained in the last year. is con­siderable, it must not be lost, and yet tokeep it, it must be increased. Anothertwelve months like the last, and the solid­ity of the Association will be definitelyassured.The vaudeville performance, in chargeof Walter L. Gregory, was the best evergiven at a reunion here, There was a Alumni in the StandsAt the Dinner in Hutchinson CourtTHE QUAR.TER-CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONshort play by J. D. Dyrenforth, '16,"Crossed Wires;" Henry Sulcer andMrs. Sulcer sang delightfully songs oftheir own composition; Phcebe Bell Terrygave a series of imitations that were ex­traordinarily good; Blackfriar chorusrevived scenes from three past operas;and there was professional assistance.As usual, the performance was too gen­erous in quantity, lasting well over twohours; but the quality was unexception­able. I t was almost Sunday morningwhen the fifteen hundred alumni slowlyunpacked themselves from the lobby andloitered home-or not, as the case was.Sunday was given up to the Convoca­tion Prayer service at 10 :30, the generalReligious Service at 11 :00, Vespers at4 :30, and the Conference of the DivinitySchool at 8 :00. The sermon in the morn­ing was by President Albert Parker Fitchof the Andover Theological Seminary.1916 Class Day: President Redmon Speaking 429Vespers were sung by the Chicago Men­delssohn Club, in Hutchinson Court, be­fore a very large audience.Monday, in the morning and earlyafternoon, was given up to Senior Classexercises, including the flag-raising, ath­letic events, the class play, the luncheon,and the various class addresses aroundthe Senior Bench. The president's ad­dress was given by Craig Redmon, thepoem by James Warren Tufts, the �is­tory by Ruth Manierre, and the orationby Lawrence Eustis Salisbury. In themorning also was the address before thePhi Beta Kappa Society, by PresidentJohn H. Finley of the University of theState of New York; and in the afternoonat two began both the celebration of thefiftieth Anniversary of the Founding ofthe Divinity School, and the series of De­partmental Conferences.At half past five interest centered onthe Masque, given in celebration of theopening of Ida Noyes Hall. An accountof the masque may be found in the Juneissue of the Magazine. The weather,which so far had behaved perfectly, nowbegan to show its teeth a little; by sixo'clock it was raw, windy, and more thanhinting rain. But the fifteen hundredspectators, on the tiers of benches ar­ranged around the Women's Quadrangleremained unmoved by appearances, andthe Masque proceeded in a beautiful andstately fashion, from the entrance ofProf;ssor Hale as the Spirit of GothicArchitecture to the final gesture of AlmaMater. Then many of the guests hurriedaway to the Departmental Dinners, ofwhich there were ten in different partsof the city, some downtown, some nearthe University, with more than twothousand attending. From these dinnersalso hundreds hurried back to the Dedica­tion of Ida Noyes and the President'sReception. At the dedication, on the stepsof the wholly dark edifice, the keys wereformally presented to President Judsonby Mr. Noyes, and by President Judsonturned over to the women of the Uni-430 rnt: UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Spirit of Gothic Architecture SpeaksThe Masque: Professor Hale as the Spirit of Gothic ArchitectureHere, in the midmost of this land of hope,My spirit, genius of that Gothic ArtWhich reared in the old world tower andpinnacle,Building cathedrals, for the soul of man,And halls of learning for his broodingthought,Seeks a new home-a mightier, in mydream,\\Therein to raise fair Wisdom's fairestshrine.Here must it be-beneath these radiantskies, Beside the intoning beat of the inlandsea,Besides these billowing prairies far out­spread;Here, in this city of the venturing will,Here, in this city of the generous heart.And now my q�est is ended!

The main door was then un­-locked and the lights were turned on bythe women, who entered in procession,singing. The reception which followedwas attended by probably five thousandpeople.That night it rained; and the next day,Tuesday, June '6, Convocation Day, brokecold and forbidding. There was a seri­ous problem involved in the weather;for if possible the Convocation Exerciseswere to be held in Hutchinson Court; ifnot, in Bartlett. By one o'clock it wasclear that Hutchinson was out ' of thequestion. Unfortunately no separatetickets had been issued for Bartlett; andas there was far less room there than inthe court, the jam was tremendous, andmany relatives of those who were grad­uating were shut out. University avenuewas blocked by the crowd, and the open­ing exercises somewhat delayed in con­sequence.The addresses at this 99th Convocationwere seven, besides the President's Quar­terly Statement. J. O. Murdock, '16,spoke for the students in residence, W m. Scott Bond, '97, for the alumni of theColleges, Edwin Herbert Lewis, Ph. D.,'94, for the graduate and professionalschools, Professor Thomas C. Chamber­lain for the Faculties, President Ryersonfor the Trustees, Harry O. Wheeler onbehalf of the city of Chicago, and JohnD. Rockefeller, Jr., on behalf of thefounder of the University. Of these ad­dresses Mr. Bond's and Dr. Lewis', as ofdirect interest to the alumni, are printedelsewhere in the Magazine. Followed,the granting of more than 800 degrees,titles, and certificates, including 34 doc­torates of philosophy and fourteen honor­ary degrees, as follows:Doctors of Humane Letters:Maurice Bloomfield, Professor of San­skirt and Comparative Philology, JohnsHopkins University.

With these speeches and presentations, .it was eight o'clock when Convocationended; and the University Dinner hadbeen set for seven! Also, it was rainingin .torrents by this time, the first fore­taste of the heaviest and steadiest four­days rain that Chicago has known inmany years. Nevertheless undaunted the Convocationists hastened home,changed to evening clothes, and reap­peared at Ida Noyes Hall for the dinnerby nine. At about nine fifteen the eighthundred diners sat down, half in themain dining room and half in the gym­nasium. The program of speeches (whichwere given in -the gymnasium, to whichthe other diners adjourned) began atten minutes. after eleven, and as therewere eleven speakers, continued till nearlyone thirty, Mr. John D. Rockefeller,j r., concluding his second address of theday at that hour. Of the speeches, thatof Leo F. Wormser, J. D., '09, .as rep­resenting the Law School, is presentedelsewhere in the 1\1[ agazine. Prof. Coul­ter, who acted as toastmaster, was de­lightful, even against the handicap of thehour, and with Mr. Rockefeller's speechthe quarter-centennial celebration endedin .a blaze of glory.Alumni who found their own specialexercises of Saturday, as well as thewhole celebration, pleasant beyond allanticipation, will thank us for concludingthis sketchy account with a bit of verseby a recent graduate, which sums up per­haps for most of us the impressions ofthe occasion.Miss McKay, please take a letter-Yours to no. Excuse delayIn replying Yes, that's better.Lord! Where are my thoughts today?Just a blur of flags and faces,Then a grip of hearty hands,While the memory backward racesTo the music of the bands.Backward through "the dust of ages"(N ot so lengthy by their looks),That has dimmed the shining pages­Of our college memory books. '.Here's a foolish song that thrills you,Here's a smile, forgotten, sweet,Here's a brother-voice that fills youWith old joys that won't repeat.THE QUARTER-CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONHere's a storied campus corner,Here's a friend, frank, unafraid,Or a prof. who scorned the scornerOf the gilded youth who strayed.Then the pain to touch the pleasure,Lest you boast a fate too kind,Friends once half your college treasureWhom you seek but do not find.Ah, Chicago! Love we bore it,J ostling years have made us miss,Like a mantle once we wore it,N ow the hem we stoop to kiss.Miss McKay-er-I was saying-Oh yes! .. � .... pardon the delay .....What's the use?

Thenext issue will appearin the first month of the Autumn quar­ter. The editor looks back over the pastnine months with plenty of regret for theshortcomings of the Magazine, but withplenty of enthusiasm for the generalprogress in alumni affairs. This progresshas been due in fact to the inspiration ofthe Quarter-Centennial, a full accountof the various celebrations of which youhave. (presumably) already read. TheThis Issueand Others Quarter�Centennial being past, shall we,however, sit down placidly again and waitfor the next one? Not noticeably. Thealumni are beginning to learn that theimmediate reward of pulling together isthe privilege of keeping at it. The ulti­mate reward-that's another story, Butjust now everybody is expected to do hisor her bit without hesitation. Our olderalumni are growing more and more suc­cessful all the while, and our youngeralumni (it would seem) more and moreenthusiastic. Don't let us lose our newly­'discovered initial velocity. The Magazinewill try not to do so. It has grown largeenough now. We need no more roomthan we have at present. We shall try436 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEto improve in other ways. Next year,with another such year of co-operationon your part, we shall hope indeed togrow smaller; to become a weekly, infact. That was a dream, in June of 1915.In June of 1916 it looks like a prospect.In June of 1917�here's hoping.Mr. Hobart W. Williams has given theUniversity of Chicago business propertyhaving a value conservatively estimatedat two million dollars.This property is toconstitute a specialtrust. From the in-The WilliamsEndowmentFundcome a certain amountis to be set aside as an annuity through­out his life. The remainder of the in­come, and all the income after the donor'sdeath, will constitute a special endow­ment fund "in memory and honor of EliB. Williams and Harriet B. Williams,". the parents of Mr. Hobart W. Williams.The income to be used by the Universitywill be devoted to the purpose of "as­sisting poor and deserving .students inacquiring education in the University ofChicago, preferably to some extent incommercial or business studies, or instudies relating or allied thereto." (TheUniversity is not restricted to giving aidto students taking such studies.) "Andthe University may apply such portion ofthe net income 01 said' property as itshall deem best to payment for instruc­tion in the above-mentioned studies inits educational work."The University obviously will use theincome of the estate for the establishmentof scholarships and fellowships or otherforms of aid in the School of Commerceand Administration, or in Departmentsallied thereto, and for instruction in saidSchool and in said Departments so far as, they are related to said School. Thiswill put the School of Commerce and Ad- 'ministration on a permanent foundation,and as time passes and as the Schoolnaturally develops its endowment will beadequately provided. Thus, there will be a worthy memorial of -the parents ofthe generous donor, and the School ofCommerce and Administration will havebefore it the possibility of rendering agreat service to Chicago, to the Univer­sity, and to the country at large.Just what registration is for the Sum­mer Quarter cannot yet be officiallystated. For the first term., however, itruns over 4,600 andprobably six or sevenhundred will be addedin the second term,making a total 0 f be­tween 5,200 and 5,400. The SummerQuarter registrations since 1911 havebeen as follows:Some rAttendanceFiguresSummer Quarter, 1911, 3,249Summer Quarter, 1912, 3,526Summer Quarter, 1913, 3,759Summer Quarter, 1914, 3,987Summer Quarter, 1915, 4,369The total number of different studentsin residence at the University during theyear 1892-93 (the first year) was. 742,while the total number of different stu­dents for the year ending June 30, 1916,is approximately 8,000, an increase ofabout eleven hundred per cent, or anaverage of approximately forty-five percent a year. President Judson in hisquarterly statement at the June Convoca­tion made a comparison on another basis.In the first quarter of instruction in theautumn of 1892 there were 594 studentsin residence. One hundred and seventyof these were graduate students in theGraduate Schools, and 84 were graduatestudents in the Divinity School-a totalof 254. In the Autumn Quarter of thepast University year there were 4,378students in residence, of whom 792 weregraduate students in the GraduateSchools, 123 were graduate students inthe Divinity School, and 135 were gradu­ate students in the Law School-a totalof 1,050 graduate students. The totalnumber of different degrees conferred bythe University is 10,009, given to 8,821EVENTS AND DISCUSSION' 437different persons. Of these, 6,650 areBachelor's degrees given to graduates ofthe Colleges. The remainder are thehigher degrees given to those who havefinished the work of the graduate andprofessional schools. Nine hundred andsixty-two have been made Doctors ofPhilosophy.The thirteenth annual Hart, Schaffnerand Marx competition for economicprizes designed to arouse an interest inthe study of topics re­lating to commerce andindustry is announcedby the committee, ofwhich Professor J. Laurence Laughlin ischairman. Among the subjects proposedfor this year are "The Effect of the Eu­ropean War on Wages and the Activityof Labor Organizations in the UnitedStates," and "The Theory and Practiceof a Minimum-Wage Law." A compet­-itor is not confined to these topics, butmay choose any other subject approvedby the committee.A first prize of one thousand dollarsand a second prize of five hundred dol­lars are offered to contestants in Class A,which includes any Americans not under­graduates; and undergraduates of Amer­ican colleges, constituting Class B, maycontest for a first prize of three hundreddollars and a second of two hundred.The two prizes of Class A may beawarded to undergraduates in Class B if,in the judgment of the committee, themerits of the papers demand it.

Laurence Laughlin, Professor andHead of the Department of PoliticalEconomy, has with­drawn from act i v eteaching, to devote him­self to constructiveProfessorLaughlinRetireswriting in his chosenfield of study and research. For two yearsProfessor Laughlin was granted leave of. absence by the University Board of Trus­tees in order to serve as chairman of theexecutive committee of the National Citi­zens' League for the Promotion of aSound Banking System, an organizationwhich rendered a great service in connec­tion with the reconstruction of our na­tional banking system. In 1909· he was adelegate to the Pan-American ScientificCongress in Santiago, Chile; in 1906 he.was a lecturer in Berlin on invitation ofthe Prussian Cultus Ministerium; in 1897he was a member of the Monetary Com­mission created by ·the IndianapolisMonetary Conference; and in 1894"795 heprepared for the government of San Do-. mingo a scheme of monetary reform,which was afterward adopted.Dr. Laughlin, who has been editor ofthe] ournal of Political Economy sinceits founding, has made many contribu­tions to reviews and magazines on eco­nomic subjects, and has become widelyknown by his published volumes.Professor Laughlin gave the Convoca­tion address at the Ninety-eighth Convo­cation of the University, his subject being"Economic Liberty." His departure fromthe University is the cause of unfeignedregret on the part of members of theUniversity, who recognize the admirablequality of his long and varied service tothe institution and to the country.A letter from the captain of the Yaleswimming team, published elsewhere in this issue, is a sad commentary on thestate of athletics atYale Makes New Haven. Capt.It Worse Schlaet declares thatno rule in the Confer­ence prohibits the use of freshmen inswimming meets. To get the force ofhis remark it must be known that Pro­fessor Corwin, chairman of the YaleAthletic Committee, ruled that for thisyear the swimming-team might use fresh­men against such teams as used fresh­men, but were not to use freshmen inany meet in which there was a team ofany college or university living under theone-year residence rule. Capt. Schlaet isforced, therefore, either to admit thatYale used ineligible men, or to make thestatement that the Conference has notthe one-year rule. He chooses the sec­ond horn of the dilemma. Unfortunatelythe facts are too well known to make hisremarks anything but absurd. The one­year rule rigidly enforced in every sport,major and minor, is the backbone of theconference regulations. Capt. Schlaet'sattempt to evade the issue by his refer­ence to Pavlicek is equally unfortunate.Without going into detailsc.it i� enoughto say that Pavlicek has been regardedas eligible for and has competed in everyconference meet this .year, without ques­tion in any case.Some years ago a Chicago baseballcoach was dropped, the captain disci­plined, and the team refused their insig­nia for the season, because an ineligibleman was knowingly used for one inningof a game. True, the basis of ineligibil­ity was different. But in this presentcase the Yale captain not only used anineligible man, knowing him to be in­eligible, but subsequently mis-stated factsto evade the consequence of- his action.What happens to him?Alumni will be glad of the news thatROBERT FRANKLIN HOXIEmoving pictures of the Quarter-Centen­nial were made on a large scale, and thatnext fall there will beavailable for the use ofalumni clubs betweentwo and three thou­sand feet of film. These pictures werenot made on speculation by any company,but are the property of the University,and may be secured by any universityMovingPictures 439group for a nominal sum. The pictures donot, unfortunately, include the Masque.There was a misunderstanding overthe question of paying a royalty to MissFinch, who produced the Masque, andwhen it was cleared up no time remainedfor a daylight rehearsal. Everything else-procession, circus, dinner, convocation,and all the features-was filmed, and willbe on view.Robert Franklin HoxieOn the morning of June 22 the Uni­versity was stunned by the news of thedeath by his own hand of Robert Frank­lin Hoxie, 'Ph. B. 1893, Ph. D. 1905,associate professor of political economy.Dr. Hoxie had been in ill health for along time. Always of a nervous tem­perament and a terribly intense worker,he had recently been burdened by un­usual expenses connected with specialreports for the Walsh Industrial Rela­tions Commission, and therefore had un­dertaken somewhat hesitatingly to givecourses during the summer 'quarter. Hehad not actually begun his work; indeed,on the morning of his death he hadasked Mrs. Hoxie to notify his class thathe could not be present that day. Onher return from the university she foundhim dead.Dr. Hoxie was a member of the firstclass to graduate from Chicago in 1893.He remained here as a fellow until 1896;was Acting Professor of Economics atCornell College, Iowa, until 1898; in­structor in Washington University, St.Louis, till 1901; and Acting Professorat Washington and Lee University, Vir­ginia, until 1902. He returned to Chi­cago for a year of graduate work in1903, went to Cornell University as in­structor for three years, meanwhilecompleting his doctor's thesis and tak­ing his degree in 1905; and in 1906commenced the service for the U niver­sity of Chicago which has just beenterminated by his death. He married in 1898. Recently Mr. and Mrs. Hoxie hadadopted two children, now four and sixyears of age.Concerning Dr. Hoxie as an investi­gator the words of Professor Tufts atthe funeral service, which are printedbelow, are testimony enough. His idealsas a teacher may be discovered in thespeech he made at the Junior Collegefinals in December, given in full in theApril issue of the Magazine. One 'hopeshe knew, in spite of his nervous tor­ment, how he was realizing those ideals.One hopes he knew the affectionatereverence his students had for him. Hewas not a popular instructor in the senseof being widely mentioned among under­graduates. But the place he held, notonly in the esteem but in the hearts ofmany of those who studied with himwas unique. Partly it was the resultof the extent of his first hand knowl­edge, of the solid fairness of his powerof presentation; partly of his burningzeal to know the truth, because the truthshall make men free. The writer of thisarticle has talked again and again in thelast few years, as a dean, with youngmen who felt for Dr. Hoxie what couldonly be called a passionate admiration.Such young fellows will only be steadiedby the shock of his death-steadied to afresh realization of the· demands andsacrifices entailed by such a devotion toan aim as his, and to a determinationthat his influence shall widen and not belost.440 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEProfessor Hoxie's· WorkOnly a little over a. year ago we metto show honor to - the memory of Dr.Henderson. His activities in many goodcauses had made him widely known; hisposition in the University made him afamiliar figure to all. Our friend andcolleague, Professor Hoxie, was not sowidely known without or within theUniversity, but he devoted himself withequal- sincerity to problems of societyeven more difficult and delicate thanthose which claimed so largely the ef­forts of Dr. Henderson. Noone I sup­pose would question that today theproblems in the field of labor and capitalare the most difficult to consider withclear scientific mind and impartial jus­tice. Time was when of all studies itwas astronomy that seemed most danger­ous for the existing order. Thengeology, biology, and historical criticismwere in turn involved in difficulty. To­day the issues in socialism and trade­unionism to which our friend haddevoted himself -increasingly in lateryears are peculiarly critical. For theyare not merely academic theories. Tosome, socialism and trade-unionism ap­pear agencies of harm. To others theyare causes which command as sincere adevotion as was ever claimed by a re­ligion. To a mind at once' sympatheticwith human zeal and scientific in methodsuch as that of Professor Hoxie, thegreat need seemed clearly to be, notsmoothing over conflicting issues withpleasant optimism, but penetrating to theroots of the matter, analyzing the com­plex of economic and broadly humanfactors, and making sure that each sideshould understand both its own and theother's point of view.This attitude of relentless analysis,frank statement, and scrupulous fairnesswas shown in the investigation of"scientific management," in its relation tolabor which he performed last year forthe Federal Industrial Commission. Scientific management is claimed by itsadvocates to be a highly beneficial ad­vance in efficiency which has greatpromise for the worker as well as foremployer and consumer. On the otherhand, representatives of labor have ex­pressed the fear that the most vitalinterest of laboring men, their health,general intelligence, and opportunity forco-operation, are seriously threatened byit. These broad claims were analyzedinto over two hundred specific points,and to gain a basis for forming an in­telligent judgment as to these points ofdifference schedules of over a thousandquestions were worked out. It was evi­dence of the scientific impartiality of thework that the experts representing thetwo sides of the issue concurred in theconclusions as well as i"n the statement oftheir respective positions.Such studies involve not only the carewhich the scientific investigator in anyfield must bring to his task, but theadditional strain of doing justice to greatand pressing human interests. They areliable also to involve unpleasant conflictwith the agencies of democracy whichare often clamorous for immediateaction, and impatient of reflection andconsideration. Yet we hold with our col­league that society needs just this service.And it is no less true that the Uni­versity needs just such close contactwith the actual forces and agencies ofdemocracy if it is to be either scientificin the full sense or a true instrument ofthe common weal. It is easier to frameopinions without taking trouble to getthe point of view at first hand of all con­cerned. It is easy for knowledge to be­come so limited in its contacts with theactual interests of great portions of thecommunity as to be aristocratic in resultif not in intention. A universitv is notfulfilling its largest function unless itsinvestigations somehow get into theactual life of men and institutions so asON BEHALF OF THE GRADUATE ALUMNIto niake a difference. Conclusions, how­ever· true, may fail to be effectivebecause men have not complete confi­dence in those who make them; andconfidence in turn must rest upon ac­quaintance in cases where we have totrust the inquirer's candor and open­mindedness as well as his logic. TheUniversity has been fortunate in havingat least a few who have done it thisservice. It is a calamity that it shouldlose two of these within s6 short a time.To do such work is trying, particu­larly when the physical basis of life isnot strong. Ou r friend within the lasttwo weeks had taken account of hisideals, his limitations, and his duty. Hehad noted certain "fundamentals" as hecalled them' from which the followingsentences are selected:"N ature gave you and you havedeveloped a mind and heart for work ofgreat usefulness. Therefore, prosecutethis work with an eye single to its suc­cess, not yours. Regain your stability 441and then calmly seek your opportunity.Uphold your best standards and idealswhatever the consequences, but yieldwith generosity all that is compatiblewith this to the ideals and standards ofthose about you, but yield nothing in theway of ideals and standards to the mo­tive of personal gain. On the basis ofwhat you are and what you have doneyou have the duty to your ideals andwork to be at peace with yourself andwith life, in short to be cheerful and un­embittered, kindly and unhurried, self­respecting and confident in all yourthought, actions, and relations."It has taken modern society somethinglike eight hundred years to secure sucha measure of political liberty anddemocracy as we now enjoy. If it takesless time to work out economic libertyand industrial democracy, it will be duein part to the spirit and labors of suchmen as.Robert Franklin Hoxie.JAMES H. TUFTS.On Behalf of the 'Graduate Alumni''?'.�Mr. President: I have the honor tobring you the most cordial congratula­tions of your graduate and professionalalumni. I bring also the expression oftheir lasting gratitude, of which the. fuller body and tissue is recorded intheir letters and their conferences.The first conference of this memorableweek was that of your 'divinity men. Sowidely scattered are their churches thaton some the morning star is even nowshining. But to them the passing of fiveand twenty years brings no dismay, forhere they learned that an eternal qualitymay be given to every moment of time.From all their hearts there comes to youthe salutation in Christ,.in whom to beenriched is to be enriched in all utter­ance and all knowledge. And from alltheir churches arises the prayer that Godmay bless the University. Next your' physicians �alute you, andthe very word carri�s the. 'wish forhealth. Twenty-fiye;":�ars ago the phy­sician was stjlli.iv::regllt<4ecl, rightly orwrongly, as f}e;.,i�·§tet:��f anatomy andmystery. Today h:�:'��s obviously aphysiologist and an - educator. But forsuch changes, your graduates could nothave beheld the mastery of those ob­scure and chronic infections whichyielded to no magic and no medicament;or of those acute infections which havebeen brought under control by serumtherapy; or of those tropic infections theprevention of which renders the Panamacanal a greater triumph for medicinethan for engineering. May heaven grantyour medical alumni such devotion aslived in that young physician whosememory you have recently honored. Andmay you, sir, speedily be granted the442 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINErighteous wish expressed in your lastreport-full provision for clinical medi­cine, hospitals and laboratories.From a conference with their col­leagues in philosophy, physiology, edu­cation, political economy, politicalscience, history, sociology, and anthropol­ogy-a conference to consider problemsof national progress-come now, yourbachelors of law and doctors of juris­prudence. In all the annals of the bar,had ever counsel such counsel! TheE. H. Lewis, Ph. D., '94event seemed to your lawyers big withpromise, for here they long ago learnedto recognize something larger in itsoperation than any legal institution, amovement vast and humane which isslow ly making for the equity of the in­dividual in human achievement. Itproceeds against obstacles of inertia andpassion, and at cross purposes, withoutdue organization, but here your lawyerslearned the true nature of their own task-not to delay but to advance that com- pleter social consciousness which is theguarantee of every right.Their debt is shared by the alumni ofyour school of commerce and adminis­tration. Though business communicationnow passes round the earth through bar­riers of race and religion, it is stillchecked by barriers of misunderstand­ing. And yet, in the words of anAmerican capitalist, "Must it not be thatan age which can bridge the Atlanticwith the wireless telephone, can devisesome soft of social X-ray which shallenable the vision of men to penetrate thebarriers which have grown up betweenmen in our machine-burdened civiliza­tion?" Your graduates return afterexperience in affairs to acknowledge thehelp they here received toward theunderstanding, not merely of industrialrelations, but of human beings in indus-- trial relations.And now, Mr. President, your teach­ers present themselves once more beforetheir masters. You sent them out in themorning of life, and they have not for­gotten their morning wishes. They in­clude the graduates of your school ofeducation, thousands of your masters ofarts and of science, the majority of yournine hundred doctors of philosophy, andmany a graduate student who took nodegree, but whose manhood or woman­hood we delight to honor. Once, sir,they praised their masters, for praisebefits the audacious lips of youth. Butnow they hesitate. Now they understandthe words of Goethe: "Against thesuperiority of another there is no de­fense but love."As they reflect upon their own trou­bles, it dawns upon them that in so faras you prevailed with them, it wasprobably by indirection, stealth, mainstrength, or the grace of God. They findyouth less malleable than they hadthought. But your teachers waste notime in blaming their ancestors. They willblame only themselves if they fail toheat, mold, and temper the iron of irre-ON BEHALF OF THE GRADUATE ALUMNI 443sponsible individualism into an irondevotion to social ends.For research, in the rigorous and pro­ductive sense of the word, some of yourdoctors of philosophy never showed anative endowment. But that was nottrue of some who long since ceased tohope to enlarge the universities ofknowledge. Is it safe, sir, to speak ofself-made men of science? Should wehave had ought but silence from CharlesDarwin had he been compelled, in thecaustic word of Descartes, to make. abusiness of science? For one Broca,fighting his way up through poverty toeminence, we have many a Spencer en­abled by modest furniture of fortune,and many a James Watt saved as if byfire. I like to think, sir, of that firststeam laboratory in the world, the little. room granted. by the college in Glasgowto the young instrument maker. I liketo think of the good lift given him byJoseph Black, the obscure discoverer oflatent heat. And it is a satisfaction toreport to you that some of your defeatedinvestigators have still been able to en­courage investigation, and will live intheir pupils.But it is a greater satisfaction to allyour doctors of philosophy to note somany of their own number,' here in theuniversity itself, engaged in research andthe .direction of research. Drawn hereby your nuclear men, they are themselvesbecoming nuclear men. It is possible toread, in your annual reports, the recordof the important investigations inprogress. It is possible to read. It isnot possible, however strong may be thetendency of the sciences to seek unityand a common curve of direction, forany living man to grasp the sum total.We cannot even truly watch your ex­plorations within the incredibly intel­lectual structure of what is still calledmatter and the audacious ideals of whatis still called mind. "Crescat scientia,vita excolatur"-it becomes with us amatter of faith in you. \Ve rest assured that here are exercised the most humaneardor and the most perfect impartialitythat may co-exist- in human beings.Long ago, sir, we ceased to magnifydistinctions between useful and uselessresearch. One of our number-and Imake the allusion merely to illustrate thepoint-has succeeded in isolating theelectron and measuring it. He did so inthe passion of pure research, with nothought that those about him would beable, by electronic devices, to render thehuman voice sharply audible at a dis­tance of five thousand miles. But forthem the practical problem toas the pureproblem. And by all that work, whethernobly disinterested or nobly interested,every alumnus is nobly benefited.Mention of the electron suggests otherunits with which your graduates havepursued their labors. They range fromthe imponderable atomic propositions ofmodern logic to the ponderable atom;from the atom to the gaseous star; fromthe cell to. the person, the family, thestate. Few, perhaps, of these individua­tions are true invariants. They aremultiplied beyond ideal necessity. Theyare -disparate, and separated by gulfs.over which the light wings of analogymay flutter, but which are not likely tobe closed save by centuries of hardthinking. And yet, from out the e�ec:­tro-magnetic tissue of things we haveseen emerge the star-drift, the spiral. nebula" the planet, and at last the cellularbloom which flushes the rock with lifeand then engraves it with death. Pre­carious within' that film of life, threat­ened . with annihilation the moment welapse into reverie, we nevertheless per­ceive and use infinities. At any pointbetween the electron and the inconceiv­able whole, some science, equipped withits own working unit, can arrest thevision, stain some bit of the connectivetissue, draw the abstraction near, andapply it to the enrichment of life.It is true that the feat is never perfect.The connective tissue of the universedoes not stain well in all its parts. And444 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe calm which is so essential toachromatic vision is often shattered,beholding the tragic misuse of knowl­edge, and life enriched only to bedestroyed. Indeed, our habitual senseof the waste of life is so keen that nowar-even on days of peculiar disaster-can much increase it. But in spite ofall-though vision should prove only thevision of an awful beauty, and thoughenrichment should prove only renuncia- tion-nothing can persuade your scien­tists and humanists that vision is in vain.An unmoved faith still moves us. At theclose of your quarter-century of irre­versible and irrevocable progress, andat the opening of your second quarter­century, while yet the beloved voices ofthe heroic dead linger in our ears, wesalute you with one voice: Crcscaiscientui, vita excolatur iEDWIN HERBERT LEWIS, Ph. D. '94.On Behalf of the Law-School AlumniIn his book, "The Americans," writ­ten for the German public in 1904, "tointerpret. the democratic ideals of Amer­ica," Hugo Miinsterberg of Harvardpaid this tribute to our University:"The University of Chicago has every­,thing and offers everything. * * * Ithas the richest programme of collaterallectures, of university publications andof its own periodicals, has an organic. alliance with no end of smaller collegesin the country, has observatories on thehill-tops and laboratories by the sea;and, whatever it lacks today, it is boundto have tomorrow. * * * One mustadmire the great work. It is possiblethat this place is still not equal to theolder Eastern universities as the home ofquiet maturity and reflection; but forhard, scholarly work it has few rivals inthe world."These and others are the University'sglodes of the past.And yet I read amiss the significanceof this assembly if it be only to celebratethe achievements of the past. I regard itrather as a token of our pledge to. thefuture-a covenant that we shall trans­late into motive force the stores we haveset by.Said Fenelon: "If the crowns of allthe kingdoms of the empire were laiddown at. my feet in exchange for mybooks and �y love of reading, I would spurn them all." But it was not in con­templation that the books, or theirlearning, should be left lifeless. Theymust inspire to action. They must stir"the active soul."If we revert not only twenty-fiveyears, but a century prior to that, themen of learning appear at the forefrontof our active national life. There is thescholarly culture of Jefferson, the broadcomprehension of John Adams, the far­seeing philosophy of George Washing­ton-men whose minds had been en­riched by the classics, by history, by thesciences.And when independence was, attained,but the hope of unified republican gov­ernment seemed unattainable, there washeard above the clash of conflicting localtemperaments and prejudices, not the al­luring promises of the demagogue noryet the empty theories of the time-server,but the analytical arguments publishedby The Federalist and the sound, basicprinciples of government from the lipsof the student-statesmen, Madison andHamilton. It was a critical time, but thestore-houses of education released foractive service every grace, every accom­plishment and every force of learningand gave birth to a golden age. .In the days that followed, Marshall­the giant-mind of American J urispru­dence-breathed life into the legal prin-ON BEHALF OF THE LAW SCHOOL ALUMNIciples of which he was master and gaveactive meaning and practical a pplica tionto the written constitution.Then came the tense period of ournational existence that made brothersfoes; and again, in the yearning of theNation to see the light and hear the right,its eyes were turned and its ears attunedto the logic and the reasoning 0 f thegreat Constitutional interpreters-on theone side Calhoun, on the other Webster.Unhappily, however, in our days ofpeace and plenty, educated men areprone to grow sluggish. An atrociousoutburst of a mob quickly arouses indig­nation and the words of the learned arequite readily heard in condemnation.Even news .frorn a distant state of amiscarriage of justice-if ftagrant­evokes protest. But in the daily contactof the individual with the state, in therelation between personal endeavor andthe public weal, yea in the ever-presentduties of citizenship, what active partdo we take? Do not the trained thinkerstoo often shrink from furthering the in­terests of the state and from checkingevils to the body politic in their snug,academic conceit that such activities arefor the more vulgar and the less com­petent?In order that the noble inheritances ofthe past may assure plentiful promise tothe future, my appeal goes out to theUniversity men of our day.Each generation has its own problemsthat call for intellectual guidance andsound solution. \11/ e need not wait untilthe sword is unsheathed. The attackfrom within is constant and virulent. Atevery season's change there is offered tothe American public a false short cut toeconomic bliss, a vain cure-all for civicwoes, which should- challenge the intel- 445lect of trained thinking men.It is our function "to tear a questionopen and riddle it with light." "The of­fice of the scholar," says Emerson, "is tocheer, to raise and to guide men by show­ing them facts amidst appearances." Ifour study has shown us the pitfalls, thesterner our duty to sound the warning.If we have been given a clearer vision,the more compelling our obligation topoint the way. If we are true to theideals of this University and worthy ofthe teachings we have had within thesewalls, we must stand on our own feet,speak our own minds, mobilize thethought and "marshal ·the conscience ofthe nation," and assume an active lead­ership in dealing with the social, eco­nomic and political questions that besetour day., This is not arrogance; it would be, toarrogate one's value solely and wholly toone's self.'vVe cannot be recreant in these repub­lican duties. They are truly character­ized by Wendell Phillips as "the. oppor­tunities and the means God offers us torefine the taste, mold the character, liftthe purpose and educate the moral senseof the masses on whose intelligence andself-respect rests the state. God fur­nishes these texts. He gathers for usthis audience and onlv asks of our cow­ard lips to preach the- sermons."Let us then signalize this celebrationby our resolves to transform our poten­tialities into actualities and knowledgeinto power so that "what the tender and. poetic youth dreams today and conjuresup with inarticulate speech may tomor­row be the vociferated result of publicopinion and the day after the charter ofnations."LEO F. WORMSER, Ph. B. '05, J. D. '09.446 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEOn Behalf of the College AlumniIt is my privilege to endeavor to voicethe sympathy and interest and the con­gratulations of the alumni of-the collegesat this time, which marks the completionof twenty-five years of the life of ourUniversity. We feel that we have anessential part in the felicity of this occa­sion-the part of members in a familyreunion which gives us opportunity fora renewed expression of our unfailinginterest and loyalty and of our pride inthe success and prosperity of our fostermother.There are many within the sound ofmy voice who, twenty years ago at thisseason, were here celebrating the visitof the founder of the University. Thoseof us who were then: undergraduates,have a vivid memory of this campus as itwas then and of the few buildings andvacant spaces of that time. The yearshave mellowed our memories since "theautumn of 1893." Even the old gym­nasium and the commons under NorthDivinity are now the source of pleasantremembrance, so kindly is speedingtime. In these twenty-five years beautyhas come upon this land left waste by thegreat exposition, and now' we may lookaround us upon the gray and green ofour own city dedicated to the spirit ofwhich its 'form is so beautiful and ap­propriate an expression. Here just onthe edge of the clamor and strife of thegreat city, in a quiet haven of gothicbeauty, refreshing and stimulating in theatmosphere it creates and yet growingwith the vigor of li fe that characterizesthe larger community of which it is dpart-is a great university-the young­est of the great universities of thiscountry.At first it was but an idea possessingthe mind of the great man who, with en­lightened wisdom and irresistible energy,planned the liberal outlines of its growth,who laid the broad foundations for its structural progress and directed thewonderful development made possible bythe unprecedented confidence and bene­ficence of the founder. That leader whogave his life and strength without re­serve and, after fourteen years of un­ceasing labor and constant inspiration tothose about him, died in the midst of hisaccomplishment holding the light of hishigh purpose upward and forward to theend. No anniversary meeting such asthis today would be complete withoutour reverent acknowledgment of the lifeand service and accomplishment of Wil­liam Rainey Harper.We congratulate ourselves that whenhe was taken, the leadership was giveninto the sure and experienced hands ofthe man who has carried the great workforward ever since, until now the Uni­versity is recognized as one of the greatactive educational forces in this country-preparing thousands of men andwomen for their part in the life of thecommunity, equipping them with the in­tellectual resource for raising that lifehigher, laying the sure foundation for ef­fective service and accomplishment inthe professional vocations and veritablyextending its influence and enterprisesinto the most remote parts of the world.With the passing years, too, the greatcity which is about the University, hascome to have a deep pride in the dignityof its purpose and the success of its ac­complishment, and constantly offersco-operation and substantial support.I speak, Mr. President, for the alumniof the colleges, the men and women who,after the usual course of four years'residence here, have entered the variousvocations of our citizenship or have fol­lowed the specialized education of theprofessions. There are now more thansix thousand of us, besides several thou­sand who share with us our filial attach­ment to our Alma Mater, but who wereON BEHALF OF THE COLLEGE ALUMNIobliged to end their residence here beforecompleting the requirements for a Bach­elor's Degree.It is this division of the alumni whoare most strongly attached and mostloyal to their Alma Mater. Our Uni­versity life has been at a time whenassociations and friendships are eagerlysought and generously given, when socialexpansion is inevitable-a time whenhopes are high and there is zest in life,when kindly and pleasant memories aremade which are with us the rest of theway we have to go. Of such are the rea­sons for our unfailing loyalty to ourUniversity. She has given us beside anintellectual equipment, a treasure ofmemories pricelessly precious becausethey are not measurable by materialstandards-memories that are kept withincreasing affection as we grow older andbecome more and more possessed by thelife of the world.We live in the greatest industrial com­munity in the world. Nowhere is thepopulation more mixed. in its elements.Nowhere does the efficiency and suffi­ciency of the government so depend uponthe reaction of the individual citizen tothe call of a social conscience. The com­munity rightly expects a special servicefrom the college graduate, and collegiatealumni have a special responsibility tothe community. They owe a publicservice of unselfish and intelligentactivity, and if they fail of this service,by so much they fall short of making ajust return for what has been given tothem.May I say that this University maywell find satisfaction in the accomplish­ment of its alumni, in the positions theyhave taken in their several communitiesand in the promise of their further ad­vancement. This anniversary findsthem distributed in all parts of theworld. The list of their activities is toovaried to review here, but their work andtheir positions are a credit to their AlmaMater, and there are many cases of es- 447pecial distinction of which she may wellbe proud.Of those things recently accomplishedby alumni organization and most nearlyconnected with the University I have inmind especially the loyal work of theAlumni Council, the placing of theAlumni Magazine on a sound financialbasis and the establishment by the Chi­cago Alumni Club of its student loanfund.The alumni constitute the greatest po­tential asset of this or any other uni­versity. It is to them she may alwaysturn for assured interest and assistance-they are a large number of active menand women bound to the University byan interest and loyalty which is entirelyunselfish, by an affection which endureswith their lives. Other than a Univer­sity, what business enterprise (and aUniversity on one side must be a greatbusiness enterprise if it is to grow andprosper), what other business enterprisehas such a body of disinterested sup­porters, unfailing in loyalty with nothought of recompense? There is noneother. If there were such a business andsuch a body of men and women affiliatedwith it, in the wisdom of its manage­ment no expense of time and effortwould be spared to "grapple" those by"their adoption tried," to itself "withhoops of steel."Mr. President, in behalf of the Col­legiate Alumni, I congratulate the Uni­versity . upon this occasion and expressom pleasure in having a part in it.Twenty-five years have passed-a thirdor possibly a half of the lives ofrnost ofus, and yet only the infancy of the lifeof a great university. In that infancyhas come this marvelous transformation.N ow, we are in the atmosphere of agreat institution of learning, and the realspirit of a University broods over thelife of this campus. These gray wallsand towers speak clearly of the lifewithin them, and as we return, as is our448 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEpleasant privilege, year after year to thisserene gray beauty-to these greenlawns and sweet chimes, these "gardensspread to the 11100nlight"-in the wordsof that lover of Oxford, who so beau- tifully expressed her spirit-we proudlygreet our "sweet city with her dreamingspires; she needs not June for beauty'sheightening."WM. SCOTT BOND, '97.The Letter BoxN ew Haven, Conn.To the Editor: A copy of the ChicagoHerald of May 30 has been brought to mynotice, which contains an extract from yourpaper. The charges brought against theYale swimming team in this article ar-e notonly absolutely unfounded, but positivelylibelous. The facts in the case are these:No entry blanks had been sent the Yaleteam before our departure from New Ha­ven. When we arrived in Chicago we weretold that freshmen would not be allowed tocompete in the relay. On looking up theConference League rules we found thatthere was nothing to prevent either theU. of C. or Northwestern from using fresh­men against us. We made no attempt toconceal the fact that not only Mayer, butRosener, also, were freshmen. I t is, there­fore, unnecessary to refer "the inquisitive"to the proper page of the Swimming Guideto find out that Mayer was a freshman,since this was freely admitted before therace. Secondly, if you will take the troubleto look up the Conference rules, you willsee that they contain nothing to prevent thecolleges governed by them from usingfreshmen against Yale. The cup is not inour possession, since it must be won threetimes before it can be kept.Though entirely aside from the point atissue, it might be well to note 'that Pavlicek,who swam on the U. of C. team in thatrelay, had shortly before been expelled fromthe A. A. U. for professionalism. Yale'sdeficiency in "the law of honor which pre­vails among gentlemen" did not, however,cause us to make a protest.I am exceedingly sorry that this hascome up, since I had hoped that swimmingrelations between Yale and the U. of C.might be continued. An article of the sortyou publish, however, could have beenprompted only by an unfair attitude and acomplete ignorance of the facts. The boyson the Chicago and Northwestern teamsimpressed us as being the highest type ofsportsmen, and I am sure they will bear usout in defending Yale from the bad impres­sion that an article like yours is sure tomake. Yours truly,C. V. Schlaet.Captain, Yale' Swimming Team. Chicago, June 7, 1916.To the Editor: My attention has beencalled to ran editorial in a recent issue ofthe U. of C. Alumni Magazine to the effectthat the Student Volunteer Movement hasprobably not challenged the undergraduatebody in the University.I am sure that you will be pleased toknow that the Volunteer Band at Chicagohas met every week during the college yearand put on a program of a missionary na­ture. It has also taken an active part inthe work of the Chicago Student VolunteerUnion, and sent twenty-two delegates toits annual convention, the most of whomwere undergraduates. Furthermore, the un­dergraduate volunteers were the most ac­tive of those who out on the social andmission study program of the Y. M. C. A.last winter. The. band at present consistsof twenty-three undergraduates and forty­eight graduates. The latter number repre­sents some returned missionaries.It may be that you may deem it wise totake some action as regards the above edi­torial, having these facts at your command.Respectfully yours,Frank Torell, '17,President U. of C. Volunteer Band.Wichita Falls,. Texas, June 27.To the Editor: The editorials in the Junenumber of the Magazine setting forth theresults of a questionnaire submitted to un­dergraduates in the University were veryinteresting. I have often wondered whatthe results would be if a similar experimentwere tried with a number of the alumni.If sufficient interest could be aroused tosecure a representative response from thealumni, it would seem that the faculty couldgain some idea as to what influence theUniversity exerts over vocational training.A few of the questions which might beasked are:1. Did you have any definite vocation inmind when you entered the University?2. Did you succeed in so arranging yourwork in the University as to fit you foryour chosen vocation?3. If you had no definite vocation in viewwhen you entered the University, what fac-THE LETTER BOXtors led you to the choice of a vocation?Was it the accidental choice of some par­ticular course of study; or, was it the re­sult of following up the prescribed coursesoffered by the faculty?4. Were you able to make a choice of avocation early enough in your Universitycareer to enable you to secure the utmostadvantage of the courses offered in yourparticular subject?5. If your vocation was chosen aftergraduation, to what extent do you estimatethat your University training fitted you foryour present world6. Can you offer any suggestions as tohow, in your own case, you might have beenled to making an earlier choice of a vo­cation?This list of questions is by no means com­plete and can undoubtedly be improved'upon. The idea is prompted by the con­sideration that it is' only by a study of theultimate results of University training thatthe faculty can gain an idea of what it isaccomplishing; and too freequently the un­dergraduate has at best only hazy ideas onthe subject. You could readily cheese fromthe alumni roster a list of those who mightbe interested enough to give the subjectcareful consideration,It is unlikely that anything is mentionedabove which has not been carefully consid­ered by the faculty, but I would be glad tohave your opinion as to the value (If suchan inquiry. Very sincerely yours,W. E. Wrather, '07.To the Editor: The University of Chi­cago Magazine has become a journal ofgenuine interest. Thanks for your share inbringing about this result. A word of ap­preciation sometimes makes a task seemless irksome.I have read the reminiscences of earlydays from the "has beens" with great in­terest. Here are a couple not yet touchedupon: I came to Chicago from the eastin 1890, and in 1891 was attending theeighth grade in the Fifty-fourth StreetGrammar School. Of course we had a foot­ball team; Ralph Hamill was our star full­back, the same Ralph who subsequentlyachieved fame as the Terrible Turk on thechampionship team of '99. Our practicefield was-where do you suppose ?-Fifty­seventh street and Ellis avenue, southeastcorner. There was a plot of high groundat this point and toward the south a clumpof oak trees about a half-block away. Theland sloped toward a marsh in the east,where trap shooters used to hold forthwith delight. This vacant lot was a fairfield for football practice. We boys under­stood the land belonged to Marshall Fieldand wondered why he ever put money intosuch a barren wilderness. You can imagineour chagrin when we heard that they weregoing to put up some buildings on our foot- 449ball field and spoil our practice field. Laterwe found it was to be the University ofChicago. Someone asked me if I was go­ing to school there. I said, "No, I shouldsay not." When Cobb Hall was nearlyfinished I remember one Sunday afternoonrunning around the roof of the building.The year 1896 found me matriculated there.'We used to bemoan a lack of traditionsin the University. They are coming fastnow, but even "old" traditions are new.We elders who recall events twenty-fiveyears back have no white moss in ourchins and are far from decrepit.I t is astounding to realize such a galaxyof events can happen during a quarter­century of our alma mater.Another curious thing, which would nothappen now, was, in my freshman year thelines were not closely drawn, so I lived inGraduate Hall and associated with men whowere working for their Ph. D.'s. I deter­mined to live in campus. Snell Hall wasfull, so I spent two very happy years in"Grad" while going the rounds of thefreshman-sophomore period.Sincerely yours.Rowland Rogers, '00.Helena. Ark.To the Editor: Is there anywhere aboutthe University a "Who's Who" book?There should be two-one for distinguishedalumni, with their records up to date; an­other for the faculty, with past educationalaffiliations and deeds of valor. Such booksmight be of large size, decorated 'by stu­dents of ability and, in time, come to beunique treasures of our alma mater.Very truly yours,A.

In the Di­vinity School additional members' of thesummer faculty are Professor Francis A.Christie, of Meadville Theological School,and President Ozora Stearns Davis, ChicagoTheological Seminary.Among the courses in field work pro­vided for the summer quarter by the Uni­versity is one in geology conducted in theregion of Devils Lake, Wisconsin, the areastudied covering about 300 square miles.The party is to camp at. the north end ofDevils Lake, near the center of the areastudied, and the field work continues amonth. After the field work a report ismade, according to the general plan of theUnited States Geological Survey.Another region for field work in geologyis to be Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri,where are shown a large number of geo­logical phenomena in a small area, as manyas twenty distinct formations being exposed.Collections of fossils from the variousformations will be made, which later maybe used as the basis for laboratory study atthe University.. Another area designated for geologicalstudy during the Summer Quarter is thatpart of the Cascade Range between Mt,Hood and the Columbia River, which. givesfirst-hand acquaintance with valley glaciers,a great volcanic cone, recent lava: flows,and the records of at least six geologicalepochs. This course is open only to menwho can "rough it," and the party is tomeet at Portland, Oregon, on August 1st,for a month's work. A field course is also to be given in theLower St. Lawrence Valley, one of the mostinteresting regions geographically in easternNorth America, where plain, highland, andmaritime conditions ale often found in closeproximity. Montreal, Quebec, French Can­ada, and the eastern provinces afford manyopportunities to relate geography to historyas well as to present conditions. Septemberwill be given to this course and only grad­uate students may enter it.Among the recent gifts to the University15 that of the library collected by the lateProfessor Charles Richmond Henderson,Head of the Department of Practical Soci­ology in. the University of Chicago. Thiscollection, presented to the University byMrs. Henderson, is strong in the specialfields in which Professor Henderson was sowidely known.Dr. Frank Wakeley Gunsaulus, President•• s: the Armour Institute of Technology, has given the University during the past yearvaluable incunabula and manuscripts whichwill constitute a foundation. for an impor­tant collection. Perhaps the most interest­ing of these is the Boccaccio Manuscript,The Genealogia, which was prepared inFlorence between 1370 and 1406 for theChancellor of the Florentine Republic. Onthe elaborately illuminated first page is aportrait of Boccaccio, possibly the earliestextant.President Judson received the honorarydegree of Doctor of Laws from Northwest­ern University at its commencement onJune 14.

The emphasis throughout the celebra­tion on the alumni interest and the home­coming of Chicago men and women.2. The enthusiastic co-operation of bothundergraduates and alumni and of all class­es, fraternities, clubs, and halls.3. The appropriation by the University,which made it possible to plan in advancefor all these events and which enabled yourcommittee to carry through these planswith a free hand, as far as finances wereconcerned, although ,expending only one­half the appropriation at their disposal.4. The very efficient publicity which wascarried through by the general committee,which brought the Quarter-Centennial atleast three times to the attention of everyChicago man and woman whose addresswas available. (Publicity material, letters,etc., are made a part of this report.)5: The efficient leadership of the follow­ing chairmen of committees: Grace A.Coulter, Earl D. Hostetter, Walter L. Greg­ory, Henry D. Sulcer, of the alumni; andJ. O. Murdock, Harold T. Moore, D. C.. Clark, R. W. Davis, Lawrence MacGregor,of the undergraduates.6. The great number of undergraduatesand alumni who had a part in the events-700 at the alumnae breakfast, 1,830 in, theparade, 750 at the dinner, 1,100 at the vau­deville.Suggestions for Alumni Celebrations of theFutureYour committee makes the following sug­gestions from its experience as to thingsthat ought to be emphasized in futurealumni celebrations:1. Alumni Day at Commencement shouldbe a real University Day planned, not onlyfor the alumni, but for the undergraduates,who can furnish such large numbers andenthusiasm.2. The program should probably includean afternoon event on the Field, either theConference Meet or an Illinois-Chicagogame; a dinner on the campus, or better,at the Midway Gardens, where undergradu­ates .could be included; and a vaudeville en­tertainment in the evening. Saturday is, orcourse, the best day. There is nothing likean athletic event to arouse interest. Thevaudeville in the evening, which can be ar­ranged at comparatively small expense withprofessional talent, arouses more general in­terest in the University' community thanany other single, event.3: An appropriation ought to be madeby the University or arranged by theAlumni Association so that the celebrationcommittee will have a free' hand in makingthe necessary arrangements. 4. Appointment of the celebration com­mittee early in the year and careful plan­ning for publicity well in advance. Yourcommittee spent considerably more moneyin publicity than would have been necessaryif the plans for the celebration had beenmade earlier.5. More -effective co-operation should besecured from the secretaries of the sub­sidiary associations included in the Council.Your committee desires to express itsthanks to all of the alumni and alumni or­ganizations through whose enthusiastic co­operation Alumni Day, June 3, 1916, wasmade so great a success and a red-letterday in alumni history. We desire to ex­press individually and collectively our ap­preciation of the opportunity which - hasbeen given us of serving the University inthis enjoyable and important task.For the committee,Arthur E. Bestor, '01,Chairman Alumni Committee on theQuarter-Centennial.REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CLASSREUNIONS AND ORGANIZATIONThe work of this committee was verydefinitely modified this year by the twenty­fifth anniversary celebration of the Univer­sity. It was the natural and legitimatedesire of the alumni committee of that cele­bration. that all vv:ork for class reunions beconcentrated on the general reunion plannedfor Alumni Day, Saturday, June 3. Thiscommittee, therefore, became, in a measure,a subcommittee of the alumni committeeon the Quarter-Centennial. This co-opera­tion provided a very definite plan of actionand also material for a very definite appealto all alumni to attend their class reunions,In the very full program of the day, how­ever, it was somewhat difficult to find aplace for class organization. The variousclass leaders had to slip this in where andwhen and how they could. None the lesswe laid special stress on the importance ofsuch organization, for, not only was it oneof the original functions of this committeeto effect some form of class organizationamong the alumni, but the value of thatp�rticular wor k has recently been empha­SIzed by the report of a committee ap­pointed to investigate alumni organizationsof ?ther colleges and universities,-a reportwhich shows that where class organizationsare strong, alumni interest and work arestrong, and, without class organizationsalumni organizations are weak. This com�mittce is glad to report, therefore, that, inmost cases, an organization has been ac­complished through which the next com­mittee on class reunions may work.To start the reunion spirit, a general let­ter of announcement and appeal was sentfrom this committee to all alumni. Thisletter was followed by special appeals sentALUMNI AFFAIRS 455to the various classes by their own classleaders. In order to do this work, thiscommittee appointed a representative fromeach class of the alumni and it was throughthe interest and faithfulness of these classrepresentatives that much of the work wasdone. Wherever a class was already or­ganized, of course, an officer of that classacted as our committee representative. Theclass representatives working with this com­mittee . were as follow:1886-Edgar A.

Friendships and loyalty arestrong among that group, however, and theyenthusiastically welcomed the suggestionof a few of their number that the "nineties"be organized together. It is not possible togive the exact number of "nineties" that ap­peared on the campus on Aumni Day, butit is safe to say that there were almost onehundred, and, of these, seventy were pres­ent at the dinner and there elected Mr.Scott Brown, '97, president, and Mrs. Char­lotte Capen Eckhart, '98, secretary, of theirnew organization.The class of 1901 had only ten tickets for.Alumni Day and felt their number was toosmall to form a permanent organization atthe time, but promise to do something aboutit in the future. At present they may bereached through Frederick Sass, NationalLife building. As far as our records show, sixteen tick­ets were taken by the class of 1902 forAlumni Day, and we are told that a reportof their organization is to be handed to us,but, at the present writing, it has' not beenreceived. We are sure it will be ready forour successors.The class of 1903 report twenty-one mem­bers present and elected the following offi­cers: Mrs. Martha Landers Thompson,president; Mr. Bruce Macleish, vice-presi­dent, and Miss Agnes Kaufman, secretary­treasurer.The class of 1904 took twenty tickets forthe reunion and elected Dr. Arthur Lord,president, and Miss Myrtle Starbird, secre­tary-treasurer.The class of 1905 reports SIxteen presentat the dinner and the election of the follow­ing officers: Hugo M. Friend, president,and Miss Elizabeth Robertson, secretary­treasurer. They did not arrange for anydefinite future reunions, but report them­selves ready to fall in with any plans of thegeneral committee on class reunions.The class of 1906 reports about forty inthe parade and twenty-five at the dinner,but were unable to organize. They sug­gest that next year's reunion committeework through this year's representativesagain.The class of 1907 had its own class tenton Vincent Field and reports forty-threemembers registered at the tent, forty-fourmembers in the parade, and thirty-eight atthe dinner. Instead of electing new offi­cers, they have retained Mr. Harold H.Swift as president and elected a permanentreunion committee for future reunions andcelebrations. This committee is: John F.Moulds, chairman; Earl D. Hostetter, Na­than L. Krueger, Donald P. Abbott, R.Eddy Matthews, Sanford A. Lyon, AdolphG. Pierrot, Arthur G. Bovee, Grace S. T.Barker, Anne Hough Blair, Florence Scott,Winifred Dewhurst Snyder, Ethel, MaryTerry, Katherine Nichols Vail, Paul O'Don­nell, William E. Wrather, Charles F. Axel­son.The class of 1908 made forty reservationsfor the day and report others present with­out previous reservation. They retain thesame officers.The class of 1909 bought thirty-six tick­ets for the day, though we have no reporton those actually present at the variousevents. At the dinner the class elected thefollowing officers: Walter P. Steffen, pres­ident; Zelma Davidson, vice-president; RoseMary Quinn, treasurer, Katherine Slaught,secretary. The class voted to refer the mat­ter of the publication and distribution of aclass letter to a committee to be appointedby the president, and the matter of futurereunions was referred to a committee com­posed of the class officers.Twenty-five members of 1910 came backfor the day. At the class reunion Bradford456 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEGill was made president and Charlotte Mer­rill, secretary." Plans - for future reunionsare to be formulated by these officers, to­gether with a committee appointed by them.The class of 1911 held a most enthusi­astic fifth reunion at this time. They re­por t 100 at their tent on Vincent Field. Aclass meeting was held in the tent, at whichit was voted to hold the next reunion in1.921. The management of class affairs isvested in a committee of six. The com­mittee in charge of this year's reunion wascomposed of Margaret Hackett, ElizabethHarris, Mollie Carroll, William Kuh, ValleeAppel, and Ned Earle. The following wereelected to succeed them: Florence Fanning,Alice Lee Loweth, Jane Graff, John Scott,. Franz Patton, and Roy Harmon.The class of 1912 also had a class tentand report seventy-one members registeredthere, a larger number in the parade, andfifty-eight at the dinner. The committeeelected to take charge of their fifth reunion,which comes next year, is: paul MacClin­tock, chairman; Pearl Barker: secretary;Helen Earle, Lydia Lee, Winifred VerNooy,William P. Harms, Charles Goodrich,Bjarne Lunde.The class of 1913 held a separate classdinner at the Quadrangle Club on the eve­ning of June 1. At this dinner sixty-threemembers were present. Prof. FrederickStarr was the guest of the class and spoketo them. The class also made thirty res­ervations for Alumni Day. The committeein charge of this year's reunion was con­tinued for the next reunion. It stands asfollows: George Kuh, Chester Bell, HiramKennicutt, William Hefferan, Donald Hol­lingsworth, Lawrence Whiting, Effie Hew­itt, and Cora Hinkins.The class of 1914 has had very definiteplans for its reunion from the time of itsgraduation. At that time it voted to meetat the end of one, three, five, and the mul­tiples of five years. Therefore, this was an-!'off year." However, they report seventy­five in the parade, fifty-two at dinner, andfifty-two at a reception held in their classtent on Sunday afternoon. Printed reportsof the progress of the class gift, a loanfund, were distributed to members of the-class calling at the tent. A reunion andexecutive committee of five, with HarveyHarris as chairman, was continued untilnext year.The class of 1915 reports over one hun­dred members in the parade and sixty­seven members at the dinner. They votedto hold future reunions in 1918 and 1920.A committee of five was appointed as. theexecutive body of the class. This com­mittee consists of Frances T. Ward, HelenRicketts, George S. Lyman, John Buell, andMary MacDonald.The committee on reunions and organ­ization wishes to say that the figures givenhere are only approximate in a number of cases, and it is impossible to give totals forthe day, as classes were unable to keep sep­arate the record of those who attended allthe exercises and those who were presentonly at one or two. Due to this fact thefigures given here are quite conservative.The committee wishes to take this oppor­tunity to express its appreciation of the veryloyal work done by class leaders. who gaveunsparingly of their time and effort to makethe day a success. It wishes also to givespecial 'thanks to the class of 1911, whomost artistically and effectively helped thecommittee to handle the crowds in the eve-ning.Respectfully submitted,Committee:Charlotte Foye, '96.Donald S.

When the committee started its campaign111 February, 1916, we had approximately1,510 members and there were almost 2 000subscribers to the Magazine. 'In February we sent personally signedlett�rs t� each subscriber to the Magazine,asking h1111 to secure another subscriber tothe Magazine, as well as to secure themembership of the same individual in oneof the Alumni Associations. (It will beseen, therefore, that our committee and ourassociation did some propaganda work forthe other associations.) It was providedthat invoice should not be rendered to newsubscribers until they had received at leasttwo issues of the Magazine.On March. 15 we sent follow-up postalcards to between the seventeen and eighteenhundred people from whom we had notheard.By this method we were able to secure atotal of 120 subscribers at a cost (if about90 cents each.SOME CLASS REUNION REPORTSOur next step, on or about March 20, wasto send reply mail cards to those peoplewhose addresses we had and who wereneither members of arty association nor sub­scribers to the Magazine. We have receivedto date by this method 264 subscribers at acost of about 55 cents each.There was a total of 10,213 communica­tions sent out at a total of $253.85; up toJune 1 we had received 412 subscribers tothe Magazine, most of whom joined someassociation, chiefly College Alumni, showingan average cost per subscription of 61 centsto date.In the March, April and May numbers ofthe Magazine we ran full-page ads, callingattention to the campaign.We are still getting results on abovework and it is expected we will continue todo so for some time. It is, of course, diffi­cult to say just what particular agencybrings membership in the association orsubscription to the Magazine.There is no, doubt our work has beenaided by the efficient secretary-treasurer ofour association and his efficient manage­ment of the magazine, and, of course, thesuccess of the editor of the Magazine inediting a thoroughly adequate Magazine hasmaterially assisted in our results.It appears to your committee that thisexpense is thoroughly justified, provided weare able to secure renewals of membershipsand subscriptions when they expire; but ona basis of having to do this missionary workevery year on people who have once beenenrolled as members and subscribers theamount of money expended by your com­mittee would not be justified. I am very 457glad to say I think the present businessmanager has followed this matter with ex­treme care and with unusual success.The secretary-treasurer and business man­ager of the Magazine, assisted by the editor,made .a campaign of the Senior Class andsecured seventy-six memberships in the as­sociation and subscribers to the Magazine,and would undoubtedly have secured' agreater number if Mr. Moulds had not beenforced to leave the city. This committee,therefore, appointed certain solicitors to go.on with this work and we have secured ad­ditional twenty-nine subscribers at a costof 20 cents each. These solicitors are stillworking and we expect to have additionalresults from their efforts.'vVe, therefore, find the membership inthe association of June 1 consists of 2,069,as against 1,510 on February 1, this year;and 2,553 paid subscribers to the Magazine,as compared with approximately 2,000 onFebruary 1.It might be pointed out that the numberof new subscribers is slightly in excess ofwhat the numbers indicate, as there are,of course, a few (due to the efficiency ofthe business manager, a very few) expira­tions which were not renewed.(Signed) Harold H.

Hair.19061906 came out en masse and enjoyed theheartiest sort of a reunion. Everybody washappy. The girls in the ten years sincegraduation have grown younger, prettierand more entrancing. The men are allprosperous and, too, generally bald.The 1906 maize and blue "May Pole" fea­ture in the parade of the classes was con­ceded by all to be the most spectacular ofthe whole pageant. With our Cobb "band,"our songs and our cheering, 1906 surpassedall in tuneful and joyous noisiness. Also, atthat bounteous repast, the alumni dinner,1906. had a particularly enjoyable time.The only vain regret of the day is thatabsolutely every "1906-er," graduate or"quituate," could not have been there. Next458 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEyear no one will be absent when the rollis called.Burton P. Gale.1907Forty-three members of the class of 1907registered at the 1907 class tent on AlumniDay, June 3; forty-four were in the proces­sion, and thirty-eight were at our table atthe dinner. 'I know there were some members atsome of these functions who did not attendthe other events, so I conclude there wereforty-eight of fifty members of the class of1907 at the reunion. Charles F. Axelsonwas chairman of the day.Our method of procedure for future re­unions and celebrations is as follows:We have arranged for a permanent re­union committee consisting of the followingindividuals, as well as such members as maybe added from time to time:, The executive committee, consisting of:John Fryer Moulds, Chairman, University of Chi­cago.Earl D.

Swift.1909Of the many bands in that now historicparade of Saturday, June 3, the one that1909 produced was, if not the most harmo­nious, at least the most amusing. With"Big Bill McCracken" as bandmaster, withSteffen, Schommer, Caldwell, Harris andothers tooting madly at their wheezy in­struments and the rest of us singing to fillin, we made a noisy but jubilant showing.Then. "Bill" called so continuously for a"Yea-09," all afternoon and evening, in sea- son and out of season, that everybody knewwe were there,-small of number but loud ofvoice.We were proud of our showing, for, al­though we boasted no tent, but met quietlyunder the eaves of ivy-walled Ryerson, al­though our "great ones" could not be pres­ent,-CHarry Hansen was at the front, re­porting, Fred Carr was on his honeymoon,"Wallie" Steffen and John Schommer hadto hurry home to their wives' tea-parties,and Renslow Sherer could not leave home)-nevertheless, about fifty of us stayed theday through, even through the long waitfor cold chicken. In between courses atdinner and those frequent explosions fromour near neighbors of the famous E-E­Eleven variety, we contrived to hold a shortbusiness meeting and to organize our forcesfor greater activity than the class has everknown before. Officers for 1916-1917 are:Walter P. Steffen, president; Zelma David­son, vice-president; Katharine Slaught, sec­retary; Rosemary Quinn, treasurer.But if we are proud of our Saturday'srecord, we have reason to be prouder stillof our service to Alma Mater during theQuarter-Centennial celebration. We fur­nished one of the largest groups of aideswho officiated at the masque and the dedi­cation of Ida Noyes Hall: Lulubel Walker,Helen Jacoby, Majorie Day, Louise Norton,Mary Courtenay, and Katharine Slaughtwere all there with their red tassels. Yetwe are proudest of all that from our rankswas chosen one of the first speakers for thealumnae luncheon, and the same speakerwas selected to represent the alumnae of thecolleges at the great Uinversity dinner onTuesday night. Everyone, of us who heardMary Courtenay tell what Noyes Hallmeans to the women of the Universitythrilled with delight at the clever yet mas­terly way in which she handled her toast"Echoes of Lexington." ,So much for the past. As for the future­we make no promises, but we are out to dobig things.Katharine Slaught.1911She was a 1911 model-that Class of 1911Reunion-five years old. Not the latest per­haps, in beautiful lines nor the most fash­ionable in modern accessories, but still herown self in speed, endurance and absoluteharmony in the working of every part ofher mechanism. Except for an occasionalspurt, she had remained in storage sinceJune of 1911. A little oil, the tightening ofa few loose nuts, and the 1911 model wasoff like a whirlwind. A self-starter wassuperfluous. An initial cranking and herfaithful engine hummed along without astop or a balk from June 1 to June 3. Shehad nary a rattle nor a squeak. Her Claxonalone was noisy-ever warning others ofSOME CLASS REUNION REPORTS,her approach. She had no brakes. Gaso­lene alone regulated her speed. That gas­oline was of the finest distilled variety; itssupply was unlimited. Over one hundredman-power was easily developed.The class of 1911 started reuning at theinterclass hop in Bartlett Gym on Thurs­day evening, June 1. About twenty-fivemembers of the class were in attendance.On Friday the official reunion of the classwas held in the tent on Vincent Field. Theprogram included a ball game, music,. mo­tion pictures of the class, an experiencemeeting, and much to eat. A formal classmeeting was called. It was announced thatover $250 of the original $500 presented bythe class to the University on class dayremained unexpended. It was voted tocreate a 1911 loan fund for students in theUniversity with this surplus. The treas­urer's report showed that approximately$500 had been collected from members ofthe class for reunion expenses. It wasunanimously voted to continue the publi­cation of the "Eleven," the official classpaper. Letters were read from membersof the class who were unable to come back.The affairs of the class are administered bya committee of six. The retiring committee,which had charge of the reunion, was com­posed of Mollie Carroll, Margaret Hackett,Elizabeth Harris, Ned Earle, Bill Kuh andVal Appel. The following were electedtheir successors: Roy Harmon, John Scott,Francis Patton, Jane Graff, Alice Lee­Loweth and Florence Fanning.On Friday evening after the UniversitySing a reception was given in the !ent tofriends of the class. Later a very enjoyable. gathering of the men of the class convened:Saturday 1911 joined in the big alumnifestivities. In the parade we, were bothseen and heard-so we are informed byneutrals. At the alumni dinner in Hutchin­son Court 1911 responded with seventystrong, . in. costume. Professor FrederickStarr, always beloved by 1911, was the guestof honor at the 1911 table, and was electedto honorary membership in the class. Thedinner over, the class attended the vaude­ville in Mandel en masse. And after thevaudeville 1911 men and women again gath­ered at the tent. Weary, but still enthusi­astic, they sang for the last time the classsong to the tune of the "Old Grey Bonnet"and gave the famous E-Eleven yell.. Withpraise for 1911 on her fifth reunion, withglory for Alma Mater on her twenty-fifthbirthday,-they bid each other Godspeeduntil 1921.Over one hundred members of the classreturned to the campus for the celebrationA partial list of tho-se who came back fol­lows, the address being Chicago unlessotherwise given:Val Appel; Marjorie .Hill Allee, Lake Forest, Ill.;Richard Atwater; Grant armstrong, Pontiac, Ill. ;Anita Bailey, Gary Ind.; Cy Baldridge, Norman Bald­win; Buck Baukhage, New York, N.

Owing to the fact that most ofthe "Twelvers" are hard-working people,there were not many present. The realopening took place Friday nigh! after theUniversity Sing, when about thirty of t�eOld Guard came back to talk over- theirpresent and past activities. When conver­sation lagged, Art O'Neill would put onanother record on his "Pathephone."Nothing unusual took place Saturdaymorning. About fifty members of the classforced their way into our class float, thatpalatial Midnight Specia1. The other thirtylate-comers were forced to fall in behind inthe procession.We had as our guests at the dinner Mr.and Mrs. Angell, Mr. and Mrs. Marshall, andthe "official Twelvers' chaperon," our friend,Miss Ott. Ralph Rosenthal's answer to1911, when it presented "Freddy" Starr tothe audience was "We. may not have a Starr,but we have got an Angel1."After the dinner we attended the vaude­ville.The Midnight Special was wrecked at11 :40 p. m. Saturday night behind the 1912tent and it made an extremely good bon­fire.' The only thing that marred this cere­mony was the fact that some small urchinshad gotten away with all our refreshments.At midnight Saturday we. all went overto the 1912 gate in Stagg Field. Bill Harmsgave one of the "classiest" and most clas­sical dedication addresses ever perpetratedon a University public. His volume andtone quality were unsurpassable. BillThomas who was late for the exercises,said he heard every word of it. Isabel J ar­vis christened the gate with a bottle of "ex­tra dry."460 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe same committee that had charge ofthis reunion will plan the next picnic. Themen of the class will have a dinner down­town probably in January.Raymond James Daly.1913The reunion started with the annual classdinner, which was held at the QuadrangleClub on Thursday night, June 1. Sixty­three members of the class were presentand the class was honored by having Prof.Frederick Starr as its guest and principalspeaker. The dinner was one of the bestthe class has had.The class was well represented in theparade on Saturday, and though it had itsown dinner on June 1, it was representedby no less than sixteen members at the gen­eral dinner on Saturday night. More thansixteen may have been present, but thatnumber was counted.The committee in charge of the reunionwas composed of George Kuh, Chester Bell,Hiram Kennicott, William Hefferan, DonaldHollingsworth, Lawrence Whiting, for themen, and Miss Effie Hewitt and Miss CoraHinkins, for the women. This committeewill hold over until the next reunion.Lawrence H. Whiting.ASSOCIATION OF DOCTORS OFPHILOSOPHYThe annual meeting of the associationwas held at the Quadrangle Club Tuesday,June 6, 1916, in connection with the Quar­ter-Centennial celebration of the foundingof the University. On the invitation ofPresident Judson the members of the asso­ciation enjoyed the hospitality of the Uni­versity at the twelfth annual luncheon. Theattendance of 248 on this occasion was sev­eral times larger than at any previous meet­ing, owing, no doubt, to' the departmentalconferences held on Monday and Tuesdayfor the special purpose of doing honor tothe Doctors of the University and of givingthem an opportunity to join in the home­coming and celebration of the Quarter-Centennial.In the absence of President Judson, whosepublic duties were manifold on this final.day of celebration, Dean James R.. Angellspoke in behalf of the President and the Uni­versity, expressing great satisfaction in thelarge body of Doctors who are so ablyrepresenting the University in all parts ofthe country, even in all parts of the world.The secretary, in presenting his annualreport, stated that the number of Doctors ofthe University is now 963, of whom 816 aremen and 147 women. Of this number twen­ty-five are deceased. Upon the suggestionof the secretary, those .present rose andstood in silence for a moment in honor ofthe departed. It seems fitting to record here their names, that we may again paysilent tribute to their memory:Eiji Asada, Semitic Languages, '93; diedNovember 10, IPl4.Edith E.

It is proposed to digestand organize these questions and send outearly in the fall a full report to all mem­bers for consideration.The association had invited Professor J.Laurence Laughlin, head of the departmentof Political Economy, to deliver an addresson this occasion, and it was with greatpleasure and profit that those present list­ened to his inspiring words. It is impossi­ble to report even an outline of this paper,ATHLETICS 461but we hope to distribute it in printed formlater.The following officers were elected for theensuing year: Samuel MacClintock, '08,president; Sophonisba Breckinridge, '01,vice-president; Herbert E. Slaught, '98, sec­retary-treasurer; additional members of theexecutive committee, Katherine Dopp, '02,Henry C. Cowles, '98.It is hoped that this Quarter-Centennialcelebration which brought back to the Uni­versity so large a number of Doctors maybe the stepping-stone to larger reunions inyears to come and that the inspirationwhich was gained by those who were pres­ent on this enjoyable occasion will overflowto those who could not be here.Several hundred of our absent memberssent messages of congratulation to the Uni­versity, and from these we quote a tew asIo llows, knowing that the sentiments thereinexpressed will represent the feelings of allfor our alma mater:"Absence in this case does not mean lackof loyalty to the ideals and traditions of theUniversity of Chicago.

Three games werewon, all very easily, from the team of W 0-seda University, Japan.The rainy spring played hob with theschedule. Both Illinois games, after vari­ous postponements, had to be called offentirely, and also the final game with OhioState, which would have given Chicagoeither second place or a tie for fourth, if ithad been played. The bad weather, also,Coach Page thinks, affected the pitching tosome extent. George carried off the pitch- ing honors of the season, such as they were.Captain Shull pitched only one really goodgame against a college team, letting Iowadown with two hits. Of the team, asidefrom the pitchers, Coach Page says: "Itwas well balanced. The veteran infieldwas unusually good, and the outfield, whichhad to be developed from wholly new ma­terial, came up to my expectations. Thesquad was fast and showed no lack ofbrains. The men were a good run-gettingcombination. Extra-base hits were plenty."Of the men individually, Hart, '17, thecaptain-elect, -led at bat. In the first Wis­consin game he faced the pitcher six timesand secured one base on balls and five hits.Cahn, center field, the lead-off man, andRudolph, second base, secured betweenthem twenty bases on balls, and once onbase, were the best men on the team. F.' B.McConnell, George and Hart were all longhitters. Ernie Cavin did not hit up to hisusual form this year."As far as the fielding is ccncerned..

The question is whether a teamcan be made from Captain-elect Hart, areal catcher, Rudolph, Marum, Cahn andGerdes, possible infielders, and Chang,Houghton and Larkin, outfielders. Ofcourse, there are the freshmen. But thesquad was very poor this spring. Langshowed promise at third base and Curtisat first, and Burks, Johnson and Swansonmay be usable in the outfield. But who isto pitch?"For Chicago a pleasant ending to the sea­son was furnished by the winning of thesenior-alumni game from a similar groupfrom the University of Illinois. The gamewas played at Urbana on June 13 as a partof the Commencement festivities of theUniversity of Illinois, and is to' be made, itis understood, an annual affair, alternatingbetween Urbana and Stagg Field; ForChicago, six alumni, three seniors, and Gun­kel of Illinois took part, the latter in thetenth inning. after George; of Chicago, hadbeen knocked out. He doubled to start theinning, was sacrificed to third and scoredthe winning run on a short fly to the out­field. The throw-in hit him on the head andhe retired from further participation. Whenhe came to Chicago had the game tuckedaway, 3 to 2. Page pitched a fine game,Johnny Boyle, at short, got two chances outof three, Dolly Gray made two assistsfrom centerfield, Libonati got a' three-bag­ger, "Skee" Sauer scored a run, and FritzSteinbrecher caught perfectly. It is nowfive years since anybody at Urbana has seena Chicago baseball team beaten. The scoreshave been: In 1912, Chicago 6, Illinois 3;ATHLETICS1913, Chicago 8, Illinois 7; 1914, Chicago 4,Illinois 3; 1915, Chicago 2, Illinois 2; 1916,as above. Well, that's something, anyway.Track-Wisconsin won the conferencechampionship for the second successivetime, with 49 points; Illinois was second,with 35�; Chicago, third, with 20�. Eightrecords were broken and two were equaled.Dismond, '17, put the quarter-mile down to47%, equaling Ted Meredith's time in theeastern intercollegiate. As both men havefinished their outdoor college competition,it is a fairly safe bet that one particularrecord will not be disturbed for some years.The same statement might be made con­cerning Simpson's hurdling records, 14%seconds in the high and 23% seconds in thelow, only that amazing athlete has anotheryear of competition, and there seems nolimit to his powers. Mason, of Illinois, wasunexpectedly pushed to the last gasp byFall, of Oberlin, to win the mile; conse­quently Captain Stout, '16, who saved him­self for the two-mile, had a walk-away,winning off by" himself in 9 :,29%, a new con­ference record, but slower by three secondsthan he had run on the same track a weekbefore. Captain-elect Fisher high-jumped6 feet 0 inch for second place; then Nich­ols, of California, who had squeezed out an­other inch, was disqualified, and the firstplace went to Fisher.

Thecommittee decided against the plan asapplied to the Thirteen, thinking it moreeffective issued separately. The editorthinks the pages devoted to 1912, 1914 and1915 in the magazine were admirable andthat the idea worked out splendidly .. Buthe still thinks that our class newspaperin its individual form and characteristicdress is more effective as a means ofserving the class and thereby the wholealumni body and the University. Many ofus feel freer to tell about ourselves to anaudience exclusively classmates:"Let's hope they'll come in next year.Meanwhile, The Thirteen, anonymouslyedited, but principally by H. L. Kennicottone fancies, was an admirable paper. Con­cerning the class gift, Chester Bell (whohas recently received his J. D. cum laude),writes as follows:"The class gift remains in 'status quo.'After we had made some progress towardpresenting the University with a concreteand bronze map of the Campus-whichstill seems to me to be the most sensiblegift we could have chosen-the Universityarchitects put their collective foot downon the proposition as being incapable ofproper execution."Their unfavorable report caused theBoard of Trustees to decline the gift. Iinterviewed President Judson on the mat­ter, and learned nothing further could bedone along that line. Thus we were leftwith our prospective gift declined andwith the class fund in the possession ofthe University. ."I approached Mr. Stagg with regardto the presentation of an electric score­board for the athletic field, but owing touncertainty with regard to the erection ofthe new steel bleachers, he was un willingto have us consider the score-board as agift. After numerous interviews with Mr.Robertson, we decided that the best planwould be to wait and pick up a piece ofbronze or other metallic statuary whichcould be used to beautify Harper.
