Harper was the general American man-of-all-work in Petrograd, hisknowledge of Russian affairs and the Russian language and his wide acquaintar.ce among Rus­sians giving him an extraordinary opportunity for service. The other three were all membersof the American Mission. Dr. Billings, as head of Rush Medical College and in connectionwith the collection of funds for the new medical school at the university, is too widely knownto need comment. Harold Swift is a member of the Board of Trustees of the University.Harper is assistant professor of the Russian language and literature in the university. Dr.Post is a graduate of Rush and is now associate professor at that institution. All four re­turned to the United States in October. It is unquestionable that the indirect influence of theuniversity in Russia recently has been greater than that of any other American institution.University of ChicagoMag�zineTheVOLUME X NUMBER 1NOVEMBER, 1917Events and DiscussionThe first issue of the MAGAZINE for theyear 1917-18 is largely made up of news ofmen and women inservice.

From threehundred to seven hundred selective menhave been drilling every evening since lastJune to fit themselves for at least non-com­missioned rank when they report at CampGrant.What TheySay of Us"The University of Chicago has also in­terested its alumni and former students inmilitary drill, besides its companies of un­dergraduates. The practical results areshown in the fact that of the 300 men form­ing the alumni drill corps more than 50 percent entered the first training camp for re­serve officers at Fort Sheridan. The ranksthus depleted were filled again until prac­tically 75 per cent of the men were acceptedfor the second officers' training camp."And once more the ranks are filling up.When the next demand for trained men asreserve officers comes in, the University ofChicago may be again ready to respond."We cite these facts only as one concreteinstance of what American universities alloyer the nation are doing to help win thewar."This form of practical loyalty has turnedathletic fields into drill grounds. It hasdrafted experienced men, army officers tohelp whip the younger college recruits intoshape. It has enabled some institutions likethe University of Illinois at Urbana to con­tribute whole companies for military servicethat go into actual camp life proficient inthe military rudiments at least."The classrooms in all the universities willshow a natural depletion from, normal thisfall, but they are doing a work of vastlymore immediate importance in trainingrecruits."10 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINESomewhere At Sea(The following "letter to the editor," from MartinD. Stevers, '12, second lieutenant on service, headed"Somewhere at Sea," and censored here and tJ:lere.bya careful official, reached the MAGAZINE Just 111 timefor this issue. Stevers had put his regiment on theenvelope, but a heavy black line has obliterated that.-ED.)SOMEWHERE AT SEA.Dear Editor:When first I wrote to you about militaryaffairs, you said that you wanted to get asoldier's impressions and reactions uponhis work. N ow, if you still have such aninterest, I think I can contribute some ma­terial which you will be pleased to have;for surely you will be interested in learn­ing how a man feels when he is actually, aswell as figuratively, embarked upon this en­terprise of putting Bill Hohenzollern in hisplace. As once before, I think I can putthe' matter in a sentence, and the sentenceis this: "There is no feeling."Surprising, isn't it, after what I told youabout the panic which seized upon us whenfirst we fingered our 'rifles and bayonets?But, after all, it was to be expected; forto what other end were we disciplined andmolded in the way I described, if not forthe end that we approach these thingscalmly?This mental attitude, I think, is finalproof positive for the common verdict thatthe work of the training camps was mag­nificent in every way. I really believe thatthe Reserve Officers turned; out by thesealmost "fly-by-night" schools will be oneof the most astonishing things in the war;for, incredible as it may seem, these mili­tary tyros have that quality which everyone thought could not possibly be instilledin less than a year, and, they have it afteronly three months of training! Theirshortcomings are professional, not psycho­logical; and deficiencies in professionalmental equipment are by far the easiest tomake up.Take the present instance as an illus­tration of this astonishing mental coolness,and I think you will agree with me in myopiruon. We are lying hove to (if that isthe correct term) out here in the middle ofnowhere, on board one of the several plod- ding gray transports which make up thecompany, and which look so much likeghosts as I glance at them through the fogabout us. About a thousand yards awayto star board is a cruiser, rolling idly onthe heavy swell. Her very funnels seemto drip mist; every now and then her gunsdip languidly down, almost to the waters,and then come up again, slowly, with: foam­ing water steaming from them. Everythingabout her is gray, and mysterious, arid awe­inspiring-the water, the air, the sky, eventhe spray which flies over her decks and attimes hides her from view. She epitomizesthe whole situation, as she lies there withher guns trained, her lookouts on watch,her crews stationed and ready at their va­rious posts; and yet not one man has lookedat her save with a cold, professional eye,and some such mental query as my own,which is, "I wonder what is the technicalphrasing the Navy would use in describingher position-whether it is anything likeour Army 'posted in readiness'?" If thatdoesn't reflect success in building up mentalfortitude, I don't know what would.In fact, so successful was the treatmentin my case that I couldn't drum up anyemotion, even when I tried. When I leftChicago at 5 :45 on a certain afterno.on­years ago, it seems, now that I look back,for the memory is less distinct than are myrecollections of entering the University in1909-1 felt that it would be appropriate tofeel a choking in my throat, and to' gazein elaborate farewell upon every' familiarscene; but all I could experience was asortof numb relief th�t at last the wrench wasover and I was on my way, and it was allover-the hectic dashing about to say"good-bye" to everybody and everything;the cheerful grins with which both I andmy friends kept out of our farewells theknowledge that the departure was for thepurpose of going to war; the attempts- atsadness with which I told myself, as Ilooked at some old familiar sight, "Take agood look, old man; it will be a long timebefore you see it again-e-lf you ever do."Yes, it was over and done; I was off to warSOMEWHERE AT SEAat last, a curiously solitary and un martialfigure, as I sat in the dining car and ate mymeal, just as I have done many times be­fore, while switches, freight yards, fac­tories and crowded streets passed in reviewbefore the windows; and all I could feelwas this numb relief.And that's the way it has been ever since.I stopped off in Washington, and wanderedabout the city by night, alone-I preferredto be alone, for some reason. I have neverseen anything so thoroughly peaceful andbeautiful as Washington was that summernight. The charm of it, the lights, the greenof the trees and grass, the shadowy build­ings-seem to sink in, to stifle all unrest, allstrife; war was millions of miles away-onsome other planet, perhaps, but not on ourold earth-and all human life was peace,and contentment, and quiet happiness. Imet Rogerson (of either '13 or '14, I be­lieve) in the lobby of the Willard, and wedrank some lemonade and some grape-juicehighballs in one of the cafes. \Ve talked ofthe N a tiorial Army-the drafted forces, youknow-and listened to the music, andwatched the elegantly groomed crowd, andthe subject of our conversation seemed asdistant as though we were discusing theprobability of life on Mars.Then came New York, and the old sky­!ine, that is familiar to every American,even though he has never been east ofOmaha. The taxicabs and street cars wereclanging about just as they always have;the men and girls were on their way homefrom work, just as they always have been.I looked up the one person I knew I couldfind in the city ("Jake" Cuppy wasn't in atthe Phi Gam Club), and we went to theLafayette, down on Ninth avenue, andplayed some of their curious games, anddrank more lemonade. It was just asthough I had come to New York to settlepermanently, and make my fortune.The same spirit prevailed during the fol­lowing days, when I chased about purchas­ing equipment. I t refused to disappeareven when I joined the throng on the ap­pointed day and reported-"for duty"-atthe offices of the Port of Embarkation. (Isee that a destroyer has sneaked up frombehind, and now is rolling and tossing aim­lessly with the rest of us. This must be a 11rendezvous of some sort, out here whereno one can see. I swear, I believe that ifa periscope should appear, and the big gunsfore and aft should suddenly begin bangingaway, the crowd would turn out with nomore feeling of danger than if the sightwere a school of porpoises, or a lonelywhale-)But back to the story. After we had re­ported, we lined up for another "shot inthe arm"-for the Army's ruling passionhad asserted itself, and we were to undergoyet another course of inoculations-andthen we were through. I t was all veryleisurely, very prosaic; I have felt morethrill, dozens of times, going out to drill.Only here and there was a girl-radiantlyhappy, for she was a bride, come to seewhat was to become of her soldier-andthat lent a touch of gayety to the scene.A week's wait followed that "shot"; theArmy certainly was in no hurry, and didn'tseem to care very much if we should all goto Timbuctoo or Honduras on our own ac­count, so we ran about New York somemore, and on the appointed day went backfor another "shot." After that, came amad dash to the next office-for at everyreporting place there would be a long lineof reserve officers, and naturally each of uswanted to get as far up in that line as pos­sible, to avoid waiting-and more clericalwork, and another dash to shake free, andtake up the interrupted routine of enjoyingourselves in New York.Finally the appointed day rolled alongand was upon us. The first I knew of itwas a harsh jangling that broke throughthe black void in which we seem to havebeen whirling, when first we come out ofa deep sleep, and it seemed to say, "Thisis your six 0' clock call! Get up. Get up,and answer the 'phone l' I obeyed thevoice; answered "Thank you," to the op­erator's cheery, "Six o'clock, six!" hung upthe receiver, and, still holding the instru­ment in my hands, turned and surveyed mydomain with a heterogeneous mass oftrunks, bedding rolls, and military equip­ment tumbled all about. Something in memurmured, "I sail today"; I acknowledgedreceipt of the intelligence, but all I couldreally feel was the fact that I would like tosleep some more!12 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEI went out to Child's, across the street,for breakfast. The sunlight seemed tohave that curiously empty quality which itpossesses' when it fills a street that we areaccustomed to see thronged and bustling,and which suddenly we see empty of allexcept pavement; the waiter in the restau­rant fought to keep his eyes open when Imade known my wants, and yawned as heserved the order. And then back to thehotel; a few hurried letters, a few last in­structions-confound it, I couldn't wake upto the fact that I was going.I called a taxi and had my luggage piledinto it-found a cranny into which I couldfit-crawled in, and we were off. I lookedback-the stately doorman, in his heavyblue coat and plug hat of straw, 'and thegrimy porter, were actually waving me ahearty, human, "Good-bye and good luck!"I waved back; then turned my face to thefront, and settled down for, the trip.Do you know Park avenue, in New York?I didn't, until that morning, for all themany times I had seen it. It is a broadstreet-two streets, in fact; and down themiddle of it runs a third street, a levellower than the other two, for the trolleycars. The edges of this middle street arecut sharp, not rounded; but along thesesharp lips runs a band of green grass, andshrubbery, enclosed by a beautiful ironfence-and on each side rises a facade ofstately brown stone houses, once the homesof the great, and now genteel boardinghouses. I raised my hat to one of them-e­the one wherein the one human being inNew York lived, so far as I was concerned;saluting the house in lieu of her, for shewas sleeping the sleep of the just and thefashionable at that hour, I suppose.Everything was bustle and confusion atthe pier-taxis chugging up and discharg­ing officers and baggage, trucks rumblinginto the inner recesses with meat, boxes,galvanized iron buckets, everything-and aseething mass of stevedores, soldiers: bag­gagemen, sailors, spread over everything'.The pier itself was a great cool hall, for allthe world like the space under the grand­stanQ�and 'through :the open doors, onecould see the gray shapes rolling ,lazily onthe water, and contentedly engulfing the"streams of soldiers swarming up the gang- planks, the huge cargo nets filled with sidesof beef, crates of bacon, etc., that wereswung aboard by the cranes, and the floodof trucks, boxes and bags of every descrip­tion. I went aboard, got my quarters, andsettled down to wait-and still I couldn'tgrasp the reality of it. Every thinkingfaculty seemed numbed.Everyone seemed to be in the same stateof mind, and because it seemed to me thenthat my experience was thoroughly typical,I have gone into it in the detailed way thatI have. And the same mental state con­tinued when we got under way, and sawNew York disappearing to the North. Andthere, I think, you have an accurate ac­count of how most soldiers feel when theydepart overseas for war.So far as life on board is concerned, it isArcadian in its simplicity. First you wakeup and call to the man in the bunk above(that is, if you are like myself, and sleepin a lower right-hand bunk-for there arefour bunks in our stateroom, and we are onthe starboard side-therefore I cannot seethe porthole) to look out and see whetherthe day promises to be pleasant, Then youlie still, squint one eye judicially (thoughwhat eyes have to do with it I don't know)and try to feel whether the boat is shaking.If it is we are going along at a good rate,because the shaking comes from the driveof the engines. Once these important mat­ters are settled, you get up and star.t todress, four of you, in a space big enoughfor one. .,Then and there arises the most Importantproblem of the day. Do you, or do younot, wash? The answer depends uponwhether the'. Ethiopian attached to 'the serv­ice of your tier of staterooms put water inthe tank of your washstand the day before.You win about half the time; at least, thathas been oUJ; experience so far. And afterthis problem comes mess-at 7 a. m.Breakfast mess is the time to discuss' theover-night rumors about U'-boats, the prog­ress of the convoy, etc. All rumors cainefrom a definite spot, -and on ship board, 'tra­dition has it that they emanate from thecrew's nest. Therefore, the word at 'break­fast is "What's the latest from' the crow's­nest?" One morning it is a fearsome taleof a submarine rising about a hundred yardsSOMEWHERE AT SEAto port and 'sinking before the guns couldbe trained on her; another day we hearthat four steamers were sunk the day be­fore, in the very spot which we would reachby noon. The medal, however, went to theman who announced the receipt of an offi­cial rumor to the effect that three Zeppelinswere sighted over, headed our way.After breakfast the usual visit is to thecanteen (we have one aboard, with ginger­ale, candy, cigars, etc.-and at Americanprices l) in order to buy two cigars-oneto smoke, and the other, according to theprevailing custom "for a Soldier in France"(the soldier, in the present case, being your­self). Almost every officer on board has alittle cache) in which he is storing up cigarsagainst the lean days that are coming.With your extra cigar stowed away, youlight the one and go on to deck to loaf andwatch the sea.Nine o'clock brings French class. Youget your book, join your class, and proceedto go through with this sort of exercise:Ou est le Sergent! Voila le Sergent. Aues­vous d1-t pain? Non} mon Capitaine; mais j )aiun fusil. Right iri the middle of it thewhistle may go uWho-o-o-ot" (They alwayspick on some out-of-the-way time.). Every­one leaps up. Yes, sure enough I The restof the signa] follows; the ship becomes abee-hive of activity, with men swarming upand down in the hatchways, like ants whentheir hill has been kicked over. Then sud­denly the mass settles down into groupsabout the life boats and rafts, and silencereigns. A voice calls from the distance, upon the bridge-"All hands-a bandon-ship 1"a signal sounds to show that he didn't meanit, and lifeboat drill is over.After that you sit around some more, un­til 11 o'clock mess. That is the time forthe big event of the day-setting ahead ofthe clock: - That's our test of how far we'vegone, and we all watch eagerly while the. chief quarter-master drags in a box, climbs.up to the clock, looks at his watch, un­screws the glass, and moves around the hands.Everyone says, "Ooh I"� and the great mo­ment is over .tAfter lunch we loaf until 2. Then there'sofficer's school, and the K. O. reads us 13pamphlets giving us the inside dope on justhow they are doing in Europe. This lastsuntil 3, and then there's more loafing until4 o'clock brings around the "evening" meal.And then there's a band concert by theregimental band, until 6, and then the smok­ing-lamp is out (you know about the smok­ing-lamp on board ship-how, when it'sburning, you ca� smoke, and when it's not,you can't) until morning, and everyonepiles off \ to bed and twelve hours of sleep.That's the routine, and believe me, it's rest­ful.The routine for the men is almost thesame, except that their hours are somewhatdifferent. In place of French, they line upon deck, and have calisthenics; then theyclean their weapons and equipment, sub­mit them for inspection, and they arethrough. They don't have to go to school.The only variant in the program is thematter of lookout duty-for the army (anx­ious, perhaps, to do its share), duplicatesthe navy lookout, and uses officers for thepurpose. The system is elaborate, and Ibeliev.e, quite good; at least, it hasn't missedas much as a dead fish so far, and I thinka periscope would be reported long beforeFritz even thought of poking it out of thewater. And when a porpoise appears, you'dthink that the entire U-boat fleet had risenbefore us, if you judged from the way theword "Black object at such-and-such a lo­cation, so many yards away," comes tumb­ling into headquarters.And that is the way time goes. There aremany more things I could tell, were thecensorship not in existence, but I believeI've - put down about all there is that issafe to say. Some day I hope to be ableto mention these things-the various waysin which Uncle Sam is making the Kaiser'sstatement that no ship would reach Eng­land or France into the joke of the ages;but those things must wait. All I -can saynow is that I expect to have some real sen­sations to tell you about before long; whenthat time comes, I'll ship along anotherscreed, unless y0U say that you preferotherwise. And with that, I'll add au revoir)ask you to say "Howdy" for me to anyonewho remembers me, and close this yarn.MA.RTIN D .. STEVERS, '12.14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe First Chapter-House Built 10 ChicagoOne chilly aiternoon back ill 1011 as EarlHutton watched the walls of the Psi UHouse sway in the breeze he turned to BillBickle and Otto Schnering and said, "Let'sbuild a real fraternity house some of thesedays." III no manner daunted by the mag­nitude o f the task involved they shot backthe answer, "You've started something,"and so the campaign began.They realized, with a rather unusual un­dergraduate appr e ciat io n of a fundamentalfact, that if every alumnus could be inducedto subscribe a small amount toward the pur­chase of a building site, it was then only aquestion of time and energy until that sitewould be adorned with something moresubstantial than a dream. To reach everyalumus and present the plan in the mostattractive manner, however, was a task thatdemanded every spare moment for the nexttwo years. In 1913 the chapter obtainedfrom the Field estate a lot on Universityavenue opposite Bartlett Gymnasium andga ve a five-year note.Five years is a long time when a fellowis going to finish college in four, and so theundergraduates set out to cut down thatlimit. Maybe it was because they learned totalk convincingly during rushing seasons inthat barn on Dorchester avenue, maybe itwas just plain hard work, but in the springof 1915 that note ceased to exist. With itremoved the alumni sighed and preparedfor a brief breathing spell, but eager-facedyoung men visited them at even shorter in­tervals than before and made a new plea."We want to start building within a year,"was the slogan the chapter carried downinto the Loop, and 171 members of the fra­ternity felt themselves slipping when theyheard the call. Rudy Matthews turnedloose all that old time pep and the famoussmile, Bourke Corcoran came forth with alist of figures that snowed argument under,and then Howard Willett. Ed. Ahrens andseveral dozen others of the younger alumnilearned the battle cry.Bill MacCracken wanted to give thepledged men a couple of additional thrillsat their initiation banquet, so he got to­gether with Wm. Scott Bond. Moses D. Mclntyre, Walker G. Me Laury and H. M.Byll esby and they staged a ten days' cam­paign just prior to the banquet.They started out to get $25,000 in suh­scriptions by that night, but before the af­fair was over $:!7,000 was subscribed. Some171 members of the fraternity had re­sponded with sums ranging from $5 to$1,000 each.From that time on it was simply a ques­tion of arranging for hids on the splendidset of plans presented hy Jeremiah K. Cady.a Psi U from Cornell. and of placing finan­cial matters upon the soundest possiblebasis that the alumni committee could de­vise. Ground was broken in August of lastyear and this spring the active chaptermoved into their new home on Universityavenue.When the alumnus who has been out ofcollege but a few years first arrives in frontof 5639 he just stands there and gazes inamazement at that huge three-story brickbuilding over that English basement. Hiseyes wander from the owls on the roof tothe flags on the top of the sun porch. Hecounts the stars on the service flag. "47,"he says to himself, "Lord, who would havethought it? Well, I guess the same stuffthat put that house over will carry themthrough the harder things ahead."He passes through the entrance hall, upthe stairs and into the main hall. Ahead ofhim is the living room and to one side thelibrary, so connected by a huge arch as tomake what is virtually one room some 57feet long. Naturally these rooms are fur-MILl.TARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS OF THE UNIVERSITY IN 1917 15nished with massive dark-colored furnitureand the heavy fumed oak pieces go wellwith the cream hangings and dark blueover drapes upon the windows.Past the living room is the sun porch,roomy, well lighted and plentifully suppliedwith comfortable ivory reed rockers andsettees for lounging. The effect producedby the furniture is strengthened by the lightcolored hangings over the French windows.Directly north of the main hall is the re­ception room set aside for the use of theladies during teas. dances and receptions. Itis furnished with white reed furniture.East of the hallway is the dining room.Fumed-oak panels extend nearly to the or­namental ceiling. Forty chairs are placedaround the four long tables which stand onthe red and black mosaic tiled floor. Thecream hangings are covered with red plushoverdrapes.To the north of the dining room is theservice pantry and a cloak room whichopens out into the main hall. The pantry isserved from the basement kitchen by adumb waiter.The second and third floors are arrangedto accOIllmodate 22 men, 2 servants and a housekeeper. Six 2 room suites, 3 doubleand 4 single rooms are devoted to the useof the men living in the house. These roomsare uniformly furnished with steel beds, oakchiffoniers, study desks and chairs. Eachfloor has every bathroom facility.The chapter feels very proud of its new$60,000 home and of the many beautiful giftswhich have been received to help furnishthe place. It feels that the house is a dis­tinct addition, not only to the fraternity, butto the University as well.Dan Brown, '17.Military Science and Tactics of the UniversityIn 1917A policy favoring the study of MilitaryScience and Tactics at the University ofChicago was adopted in the winter of 1916-17, when the president's office announcedthat a unit of the Reserve Officers' TrainingCorps (established by the National DefenseAct of June, 1916) was soon to be estab­lished at the University if one hundred ormore students would enroll for the work.A few weeks later the War Departmentappointed Major Ola W. Bell, Cavalry,Professor of Miltary Science and Tacticsat the University. Late in the winter quar­ter Major Bell came, spoke at the ReynoldsClub, at mass meetings, and on other oc­casions. The men of the University be­came interested, and about one hundredand fifteen men were drilling the last fewweeks of the winter quarter. Most of thesehad some military experience.In the spring quarter the work com­menced in earnest. There were two groupsenrolled: First, those who were regularmembers of the R. O. T. C. and who tookfive hours of Military Science a week; and,second, those who took only the drill, forwhich they received physical culture credit. The former class was much the larger, num­bering almost four hundred.The work of these five-hour men con­sisted of drill for four hours a week and alecture on Camp Sanitation and PersonalHygiene for one hour. From the first, themedical staff of the Universitv undertookthe teaching of those military subjectswhich naturally fall within their compassof activity.The work had progressed as outlined forsome weeks when the call for intensifica­tion came. It was then ordered that anyone might drop one major of academicwork and either substitute therefor onemore major of Military Science, or else be­gin the work in Military Science. Thissystem required special assignment of stu­dent instructors.Just at this time Major Bell was ap­pointed the sole member of an examiningboard for applicants for the Reserve Offi­cers' Training Camp. His University workwas taken up by the senior student officer,Leland B. Morgan, '16.Soon the numbers grew to such prop or-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE'tions that a regiment had to be formed.Toward the end of the spring quarter therewas a regiment of three battalions, eachbattalion of three fair-sized companies.When the regiment had fairly'" masteredclose-order drill without arms (they hadnone), the notice came of a federal inspec­tion on May 10. With this in view, therefollowed battalion drills, one or two regi­mental drills, mock inspections, and pa­rades. On the afternoon of the inspection,University classes were omitted. The menhad no packs nor rifles; but, as ColonelPenn, the inspecting officer, said: "Thereare no rifles, but there are six hundredspecimens of our finest manhood."The first Officers"Training Camp on May12 took many of the most valued student in­structors, and finally Major Bell was re­called. Just before his departure he recom­mended eight student officers to undertakethe summer work. They were: Col. L. B.Morgan, Lt. Col. W. F. Loehwing, MajorsParker, Duehring and Mooney, CaptainEttelson, Lieutenant Carlson, and in addi-,tion, Lieutenant Platt, of the Geology de­partment, to teach map reading and sketch-.ing.Under these student officers the summerwork in Military Science. opened. ,Each in­structor was given a particular field tocover and teach. in theoretical discussions,besides his work of drilling on the field.There were three groups of men who tookone, two or three maj ors of work in thedepartment. One company spent each en­tire day in the work, drilling, studying,reciting in the classroom, taking "hikes,"often staying overnight in bivouac, and inevery way trying to simulate the course atthe Officers' Training Camp at Fort Sheri­dan. The other companies took work pro­portionate to the amount of credit sought.Soon after the opening of the summerquarter, Major 'Edgar B. Tolman, IllinoisNational Guard Reserve, accepted the posi­tion of Commandant of Cadets. MajorTolman led the Second Battalion of theFirst Illinois Infantry through the Spanishwar. But soon he was made chairman ofthe exemption board of the Fifteenth Dis­trict, and had to spend practically all ofhis time on draft work. .But when the summer was about halfover, Major Tolman had an inspiration.He assembled the officers .one day, and,emphasizing the great and immediate needfor non-commissioned officers in the armyas soon as the drafted men were called, he pointed out that the University could sotrain some of these men previous to theircall that the road to a non-commissionedoffice would be open to them. The officersat once approved the plan, and spent mostof their nights for a week working out asystem, getting circulars printed and secur­ing government O. K.'s.By the end of the week ten thousandcopies of a circular had been mailed to reg­istered men. The papers were given thestory, and the men who had been chosento defend their country flocked to StaggField to receive military instruction. ByOctober 1 almost one thousand had re­ceived training from the University R. O.T. C. R. O. T. C. men gave up studies,dances, engagements of all sorts, to teach,and there was work for everyone.That work is still to reach its climax ofperfection or numbers. But the draftedmen were not receiving all and giving noth­ing. Not only did their mere presencegive the R. O. T. C. a chance to developas it had never before, but, more than this,their spirit affected the Corps and improvedits morale as soon as the cadets saw theirshortcomings as drill masters. Men whoworked all day gave up their evenings tocome to the University athletic field to drill.Some lived two hours' .ride from thecampus. To take care of some of theselatter, a lieutenant and three non-commis­sioned officers were sent to Wells Park,on the Northwest Side, to give instruction.On September 11 the' drafted men pre­sented the Reserve Officers' Training Corpsof the University of Chicago with ana.;.tional color. Mandel Hall was filled. TheIllinois Naval Reserve Band was there;Mr. Frank Comerford, in a rousing speech,presented the color; Major Tolman receivedit; President Judson spoke, and, finally,Sergeant Smith of the British army toldthe audience of trench warfare. And afterthe presentation indoors there was a bat­talion parade on the field and battalion drillafterwards.The plan for the autumn is to carryon. the work, and, if possible, to have everyundergraduate male join the Corps. Thegovernment has just assigned for duty atthe University Major John S. Grisard (re­tired) .. Major Grisard was wounded in theSpanish war and walks with a decided limp.It is hoped, however, that he will be ableto devote more' time to the Corps than hispredecessors, and the outlook of the Corpsis bright.War Service By The FacultyOf the Department of Psychology, Pro­fessor James R.

On the other hand,most of the staff are now engaged in teach­ing practical French to officers, soldiers andnurses. Nine sets of courses have been organ­ized for various units at the University, in thecity of Chicago, at Fort Sheridan, and inthe camp of the First Illinois Field Artil­lery at Highwood. Each set of courses, ingeneral, has comprised several sections ofElementary French and one or more sec­tions of Intermediate and Advanced French.The courses downtown. for nurses, wereorganized by Miss Wallace; those at FortSheridan and at Highwood were organizedin co-operation with the Y.

Having long been ac­customed to working with the elaborate lit­erary and diplomatic ciphers of the 16thand 17th centuries in England, he has beenassigned to the Bureau of Intelligence inWashington with the rank of captain, and the principal duty of devising governmentalcodes. He is on indefinite leave of absencefrom the University.Associate Professor Boynton was en­gaged by the Lib'erty Loan Committee as aspeaker during the October campaign. Hemade on an average about ten speeches aweek, frequently two and sometimes threea day, while at the same time carrying hisfull work in the University; his engage­ments carrying him as far as St. Louis, Mil­waukee and Laporte. From reports of thecommittee it seems probable that Mr. Boyn­ion was more in demand than any otherspeaker.Others in the department did some writ­ing and speaking for the Loan, as occasionoffered.Every member of the Department ofPhysics has been actively connected in oneform Or another with war work. ProfessorMichelson is the chairman of a groupformed in July by the National ResearchCouncil for work on submarine detection.He has spent some two weeks at Washing­ton and at New London, Connecticut, indirect contact with this work and has in ad­dition been directing activities in the Ryer­son Laboratory upon certain aspects of theproblem which have been attacked in thislaboratory. Further, he has been utilizingthe laboratory for the construction of a newnaval range finder of his own design, aproblem to which he was assigned by theBureau of Ordnance of the Navy. He hasalso devised a new ear protector, which itis hoped may lessen the injuries arisingfrom shell fire.Professor Millikan has been in Washing­ton since .the first of April acting as vice­chairman and director of Research of theNational Research Council which is offi­cially recognized as the Department of Sci­ence and Research of the Council of N a­tional Defense and which has also recentlyestablished similar relationships with theSignal Corps of the Army and with severalof the other bureaus of the war and navydepartments. The activities of the NationalResearch Council have been of two types:First, it has furnished and is furnishing inincreasing amount the scientific personnelof the Bureaus of the Army and Navy,which need men of high technical training,and, second, it ha-s a personnel of its ownwhose function is to keep in intimate touchwit hthe scientific needs of the various divi­sions of the military machine, and to dis­tribute problems which need investigationto the research laboratories of the country,WAR SERVICE BY THE FACULTYgovernmental, industrial, and university,with which the National Research Councilis associated. A large number of suchproblems in physics, chemistry, medicine,engineering, geology, and psychology havebeen. so distributed, and the progress of thework upon these problems is being activelyfollowed through the central offices of theResearch Council. Professor Millikan, asexecutive officer of the Research Council,has been appointed by the Secretary of theNavy to' membership upon the special sub­marine board of the navy, which is the offi­cial body consisting of three naval officersand four civilians, which is charged with thedirection of all anti-submarine activity inthe Unted States. Professor Millikan isalso chairman of the Optical Glass Commit­tee of the War Industries Board and hasreceived a major's commission in the SignalCorps, where he has charge of the scienceand research division of this corps.

There will be thir ty­two pages of each grade of lessons eachmonth and the material will appear in formfor immediate use. These lessons have beengiven wide publicity in letters from Presi­dent Wilson, Commissioner Hoover andCommissioner Claxton to school officersthroughout the country, in which attentionwas called to the increased need of wide­spread teaching of the duties of citizens,and to the circulars which have been pre­pared by the committee described above.Three of our faculty members are assist­ing various departments in Washington onthe food problem. Miss Cora Colburn hasbeen serving under Mr. Hoover on the FoodConservation Committee since last springand has been working on the investigationof problems of organization in public in­stitutions. She is at present working onthe plans for a community kitchen whichmay be established in Chicago in case thefood situation becomes critical. Miss Bluntis engaged in research work with C. F.Langworthy, Office of Home EconomicsStates Relation Service, Department ofAgriculture. This department is interestedin the publication of popular bulletins re­lating to food conservation. Miss Eliza­beth W. Miller is assisting Mrs. A. P. Nor­ton in the editing of material which is sentto the Department of Food Administrationfor Publication.The Department of Home Economics hasco-operated on a large scale with the WarAid Committee of the University. Aschairman of the committee on the Conserva­tion and Production of Food, Miss GertrudeVan Hoesen organized a short course dur­ing the spring quarter. In this connectionlectures were given on conservation by MissKatherine Blunt, Miss Elizabeth W. MillerMiss Bernice Allen, Miss Agnes K. Hanna:Miss Gertrude Van Hoesen, Dr. E. R. Down­ing and members of other faculties. As apart of the work of this course students pre­pared, planted and cared for about one acreof land on the lot south of Greenwood Hall.During the summer all of the produce was used by the University Commons and dur­ing September sales were made to the gen­eral public. It is planned to continue thegarden work during the coming year. Dur­ing the summer quarter open lectures weregiven on the conservation of food and cloth­ing by several of the instructors mentionedabove. The committee plans to continueits work on a broader basis during the com­ing year.Several members of our faculty have con­tributed to the Food Conservation Problem,in connection with the activities of variouscivic organizations. Exact data on thiswork are available only in the following in­stances: Miss Katherine Blunt acted asVice-Chairman of the Food ConservationSection of the Womens' Committee, theCouncil of National Defense, Illinois Divi­sion; Miss Elizabeth W. Miller lecturedbefore the Chicago Woman's Club and otherclubs on the results of her experiments on"Substitutes for Wheat Bread."The University High School has renderedtwo significant pieces of service in connec­tion with the war. A group of twenty-fourboys was sent in May to Pendleton, Indiana,for farm labor, in charge of one of the high­school instructors, Mr. Emery Filbey. Ofthe large number of boys who desired togo, only those were selected who were ofsuitable age, physique, and character tomeet the rigorous demands of farm laborand whose progress in school would not beseriously retarded by absence from theregular work of the school. According tothe contracts which were made each boymet his own expenses, except for travel, andcontributed his wages until the end of theschool year to a fund for war relief. Theother service rendered by the high schoolwas the raising of funds for the purchaseand maintenance of an ambulance and driverfor one year for the American AmbulanceService in France. The Student Councilorganized and carried out a campaign whichresulted in securing $2,000 for this purpose.�he Elementary School is at the presenttime organizrng a unrt of the Junior RedCross Organization.WILLIAM S.

MissDenton's teaching experience at Milwaukee­Downer College, Lewis Institute, and OhioState University has been supplementedwith research work as Fellow in Physiology 31at the University of Chicago and in thepreparation of various scientific papers. Sheis at present at work on a problem in foodconservation, viz., "Alterations in NutritiveValue of Vegetable Foods Due to Boilingand Canning." The fellowship carries astipend of $500 and tuition fees for the year1917 .. 18.On the QuadranglesFirst impressions of the campus this fallare, of course, tinctured pleasantly witholive drab and khaki. Everywhere are uni­forms, in class rooms and out; men tramp­ing to where the University unit of theReserve Officers' Training Corps drills; grad­uates returning uniformed and shoulder­barred from various training camps andactive service; and recruiting details fromthe Loop, asking oratorically for recruits.The Daily Maroon, coming out first onOctober 2nd, with Arthur Baer, '18, as thenew Managing Editor, made known that,athletically, the largest freshman squad everknown to the University was in' the handsof Pat Page; that Major John Grisard, WestPoint, 1888, a seasoned campaigner in thingsmilitary, succeeds Major Bell (now an in­structor at Fort Sheridan) as head of thedepartment of Military Science at the Uni­versity; that the Blackfriars, rather than be­ing frightened at the situation unavoidablycreated by the war, are making plans for aknock-'em-dead season, and want an ex­ceptionally good play for. their spring pro­duction; that members of Base Hospital Unit13, enrolled last spring from the University,are still awaiting their call to duty "overthere;" and that the observatory on top ofRosenwald hall will, about January 1st, be­come an official station of the Government.The fraternity situation, looked on bymany last year with misgivings-on· accountof the great numbers of fraternity men en­listing for service-has not proved as seri­ous as might be supposed. Four of the un­dergraduate fraternities have moved theirquarters, the moving being done in only oneinstance as the result of war conditions. Al­pha Delta Phi contributed so many men tothe service that it was found impracticableto maintain their large house in "fraternityrow" on University avenue, and they haverooms in Hitchcock. Beta Theta Pi nowhas a hous� at 5717 Blackstone avenue, andare razing their old Woodlawn avenue placein preparation for the building of their ownhome there. Phi Kappa Sigma has pur­chased and moved into a house on "fratern­ity row," and Sigma Nu, taking the old PhiKap house, now receives its mail at 5824Woodlawn. Looked at broadly, the under­graduate fraternities are as active, if not in numbers of men, then in spirit and accom­plishment as before the war was broughtto our own country.

The last time was about last March.The Maroon, holding a rather pleasant wakeover the shades of the G. c., remarked trulyenough that the G.

It is thesmall section behind the Yser, extendingfrom Nieuport to Ypres-all within easyrange -of the German batteries. At pres­ent, it is under terrific drum-fire.These Belgian and Flemish peasants,many: of them 'refugees from the other Bel­gium, were having little done for them un­til Miss Georgie Fyfe and others saw theneed 'and devoted their efforts to them in1914.

Even babies born in their ownhomes often have to be taken there andmarty a life is saved by the more healthfulconditions.

Adamsto42 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAthletics[Two of the finest runners ever in a Conference .College at the same time were Leroy Campbell, '15(half-mile record 1 :53 3-5), and Binga Dismond, '17(quarter-mile record 47 2-5). This estimate of Dis­morid by Campbell will be of the greatest interest toevery man who knows a spiked shoe from a rubberboot. Campbell is now in the Law School and Dis­mond at R�sh.-ED.]"When shall the Chicago undergraduates,eager attendants upon track meets, lookupon his like again?" was recently askedin the UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE, andthe same question is often repeated by dev­otees of track who have seen Dismond'ssuperb performances, and uaturally wish toanticipate his rank among future greats, aswell as determine his classification amongthe world's most gifted quarter-milers ofthe past.Soon after Dismond entered Chicago, hestrolled . over to Stagg Field to view thespeedway where he was to get what healways considered and termed his "dailypunishment." He asked Pat Page the im­portant bit of local color always found onStagg Field, whether the track measuredexactly a quarter. Past asked him whetherhe ran the distance and how fast. "Oh,about forty-nine," and Pat corrected, "Morelike fifty-nine I" This was the great quar­ter-miler's introduction to Chicago's trackcircle. Since then he has never been de­feated in an intercollegiate quarter, and hehas given some truly brilliant exhibitions.Johnny Breathed, Dismond's team-mate inthe quarter, tells of his first meeting withhim. Dismond asked him if he was Chi­cago's fastest quarter-miler. Upon Johnny'sassuring him he was about the best Dis­mond added, "Well, between the two' of uswe ought to pick up some points." Johnnysays in the future lie never had to worryabout the five points that went with firstplace.While a freshman, Dismond won theCentral A. A. U. championship on a slightlyshort, one-turn track in 4875, easily defeat­ing Henderson of Illinois, who had recentlywor; the Conference quarter. The following�prlllg Dismorid made his first appearance10 the Conference, and won in 497&. Thisrace stamped him as a wonderful speeder.He drew an outside position and on thefirst turn he was badly "boxed" and forcedto the outside of the track. When he en­tered the stretch he was about twelve yardsbehind the leaders, and his task appearedhopeless; but he let out several notches ofhis long, powerful stride and increased hisspeed until he dashed into the lead at theturn' with a momentum seldom, if ever,seen in a quarter, finishing probably thefastest back-stretch ever raced in a fast quar­ter. Without explanation, this statement mayseem an exaggeration. But Dismond wasby nature and training probably better fittedfor such a back-stretch than any other man in the world. As his start and finishwere never remarkable, he constantly de­pended on his marked natural superiorityin the middle of the race. and hence devel­oped probably the fastest back-stretch inthe history of the distance. Long,' Mere­dith and Dismond hold all the records onthe straightaway, one and two-turn tracks;and Dismond was not so fast a starter orfinisher as either Long or Meredith, buthe was faster in the middle.-- Dismond ran as well indoors as out, as aglance at his records will indicate. In hissophomore year he established a new Bart­lett record and also an indoor Conferencerecord of 52 flat, supplanting the 52'75 offormer stars. Later, the same evening, byprobably the steadiest, most determinedand sensational relay effort ever seen inthe West, he passed, in spite of a handi­cap of full thirty yards, the last Illinoisrelay runner at the tape. The slowest ofthree unofficial but expert timers caughthim in 50%. Some critics think this washis greatest accomplishment. In his senioryear, in the same championships, he offi­cially reduced his own record of 52 flat to5041, which is beyond doubt a great record,as is evident from a comparison with theformer records on this and other indoortracks. The college stars of the past, withoutdoor records as fast as 48+5, neverturned the quarter on this track faster than52t5. The world's indoor record on a fasttrack is 49%, which is not so I difficult arecord as Dismond's, made on this com­paratively slow track, on which the officialConference half-mile record is slower thantwo minutes, as compared with the world'sindoor record of 1 :54% on a fast track..Other indoor races not confined to col­lege competition went to prove Dismond'sgreat ability. He won race after race,among them his sensational defeat of hisworthy rival, Meredith. who with' Dismondjointly holds the world's outdoor r.ecord of47% on one turn! This victory carriedwith it a new indoor record of 51 flat forthe yearly New York classic, the SuburbanQuarter. A week later, in the First Regi­ment handicap games in Chicago, Dismondfought his way almost entirety through alarge handicap field in a' fraction slowerthan 50 seconds, which is fully two secondsfaster than the Central A. A. U. record.Dismond, like e�ery other great runner,has at least a speaking acquaintance withdefeat. But in justice to him we must ac­knowledge that his only really crushingdefeat, preceded two weeks by a 48% per­formance, came in the Panama-Pacificgames in 1915, when he finished behindboth Meredith and Sloman. Being 'beatenby an unknown high school boy gave theMaroon flyer a violent headache and com­pelled him to realize that he must in theATHLETICSfuture follow Mr, Stagg's constant adviceto work harder in practice.Some critics think that if Dismond (whowas always a good trainer) had devotedmore time to rigid conditioning and devel­oping the technique of faster starting andfinishing, he would have eclipsed all quarterrecords, especially if he had run in hissenior outdoor season.Dismond's lack of a wonderful finish oftencaused comment among the critics, and oneof Chicago's faculty, Mr. H. G. Moulton"made the Line-O'-Type with the following:"Dismond, the sensational negro quarter­miler of the University of Chicago, is saidto be the fastest man in the world for fourhundred yards, but fades in the last forty.An innocent professor would like to knowhow this can be true when 'a fast blacknever fades.'"Dismond disliked the drudgery of prac­tice and the nervous strain of racing prob­ably more than any other great runner ofhis time. He was always anxious abouthis races and feared everyone who started,especially his team-mate, Johnny Breathed,who followed him through many a fast quar­ter. Dismond's lack of confidence and ad­vice to Johnny before, they toed the markwas about the only fun Breathed ever got fromhaving a team-mate who took care of thefirst places. When Dismond was seen anx­iously whispering to Johnny, while thestarter waited for them, we knew that Dis­mond was saying, "I'm sick and my leg isbad. When I weaken take the lead. Don'twait for me!" J ohnny laughingly insiststhat he never waited.But even though Dismond did not like topunish himself in practice, he never failedto extend himself to the limit when com­petition demanded it. In the Conferencein 1916 he ran a heat in the quarter Fridayafternoon; Saturday afternoon he made hisjoint world's record of 47% on one turn,fought through two hard two-twenties, andthen, under two expert timers, he sprintedthe last relay on, two full turns in 48}'5.Dismond had an ideal nervous temperamentfor the quarter, not so explosive as thesprinter's, nor so controlled as the distanceman, but the proper combination of both.And, fortunately, his long stride, powerand ease of action well suited his tempera­ment and made for a superb pace from thegun to the tape. The more important therace, the more scared Dismond was, andthe faster he went. Only at San Francisco,on the unfamiliar straightaway, did he missthe pace that served him so well.When we turn to a direct comparison ofDismond with former stars, we face a longlist of great quarter-miters. As far back as1873 the sensational, English professional,R. Buttery, stet)ped 4�74 at Gateshead, Eng­land (taken from the Olympic program,�908), and he was followed in 1881 by theversatile American, Lon Myers, who ran 4348% at Stamford Bridge, London, on thethird of a mile track. Then in 1886 cameWendell Baker of Harvard, with 47% onalmost a straightaway; and a British ama­teur, H. C. L. Tindall, in 1889, turned thedistance at Stamford Bridge, London, in48%, which was equaled in 1895 by anotherBritish amateur, E. C. Bredin. In 1896,Burke of America ran 48'%. Moxey Longappeared in 1900 and made his classic rec­ords of 47 fiat on the straight and 47t5on a track 352 yards in circumference, bothof which have stood the acid test for seven­teen years. Then follows a long list ofrecent performers; Taylor of Pennsylvaniawith 48'% on one turn; Hans Braun of Ger­many with 48 3/10 in 400 meters (437�yards), in a losing race; Lindberg of theC. A. A., with 48% in the 400 meters, in alosing race; Don Young of Amherst, with48� on one turn; Ned Merriam of Chicago,with 48% in a 400 meter practice trial atBrighton, England, timed by the late MikeMurphy; Lieutenant Haswelle of England,with 48%; J. c. Carpenter of Cornell, withremarkable unofficial time in the 400 meterOlympic championship in 1908, when he out­distanced Haswelle and Taylor, but whowas disqualified for very doubtful allegedfouling; the professional, B. R. Day, with aquestionable 47'% in Australia in 1907; Wil­cox of Harvard, with 48 fiat on one turn;Haff of Michigan, with 48% art one turn;Reidpath of Syracuse, with 48 fiat on oneturn; Halpin, with 49% indoor; Val Wilkieof Yale, with better than 49; Davenport ofChicago with 48,%, but probably unofficiallyfaster; Cowman of Rolla School of Mines,48% on one turn; Caldwell of Cornell, withunder 49; Bingham of Harvard, with abouta 48% relay; Riley of Dartmouth, withabout 48% in a losing race; Lippincott ofPennsylvania, who sprinted relays in about48%; Frank Sloman, the San Franciscohigh school wonder, who defeated Dismondand finished close to Meredith when he ran47 fiat on the straight with the wind, andwho did 47 fiat with the wind several daysbefore, at the Panama-Pacific games, andMeredith and Dismond close the list withtheir '47% on one' turn.These men are the fastest quarter-mitersof all time (if no deserving ones have beenomitted), and Long, Meredith and Dis­mond (and Day, if his 471-'5 is to be ac­cepted) hold the fastest official records bya considerable margin, and there is littleto choose between these three marveloussprinters.Long established two world's records,47t5 on two turns and 47 fiat on. thestraightaway, while Meredith and Dismond,have run in world's record time only once.There is little difference between the' threerecords of 47,%, 47% and 47 .flat. Each turnin a quarter is equal to almost exactly two­fifths of a second, as can be seen from thefact that the two-twenty record on the lineis 21� and on one turn is 21%, and from44 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINELong's running 471i on two turns and 47flat without any, within five days of eachother. But if any difference exists it wouldprobably' be in favor of the 471i (becausethe distance on two turns has been triedoftener), were it not for the fact that Mere­dith ran 18% inches farther than Long did,due to a change in the method of measuringthe tracks, which probably leaves one rec­ord as fast as the other. Dismond ran onthe same measurements as Long and henceran 18% inches less than Meredith. (TheA. A. D., of course, did not allow Dis­mond's record of 47%, because the Con­ference ruling body very unwisely refusesto conform in track measurements to . theA. A. U. measurements, which are in usethroughout the rest of the United Statesand Europe; and in the future this non­conformity will doubtless rob many de­serving runners of their records.)After comparing the four great recordsas to time and measurements, it may be in­teresting to notice under what conditionsof competition they were made. Long waspaced by sprinters in his two performancesand, of course, started on the "pole." Mere­dith followed a terrific pace set by Wilcoxof Harvard for. two�thirds of the distanceand then went ihto;.�J)le lead and won' by about five yards. His position on the poleis unknown to the writer. Dismond startedin sixth position' from the pole and wasforced to forsake his opponents at the startin order to make fast time. Many criticsthink that if Dismond had been "pulledout" by a fast pace-setter, as he was some­what when he made his great indoor Con­ference record, or forced to his limit bykeen competition, he would have left aneven faster record. Dismond seemed torun his best behind the proper pacing, andwith fast -competition. Certainly it is al­most unknown for a runner to make fasttime with neither pacing nor fast competi­tion. His 47% under such conditions is afine tribute to his own wonderful naturalability and to Mr. Stagg's knack of sendinghis proteges into their races prepared forrecords. (I t may be" interesting to Chi­cago men to know that in the strictly run­ning events seven of the twelve Conferencerecord holders are Chicago men, and thatChicago' has won nine of the last elevenquarters, besides holding the r�lay record.)Track devotees regret that Dismond sac­rificed his last outdoor 'Conference seasonto the study of medicine because of hischance of lowering his own outdoor Con-areOUR ADVERTISERS·"Chicago" men ;;;d "Chicago backers"Their advertisements go far to­wards maintaining the quality of.Your MagazineWherever possible, we ask that you re­spond by favoring them.

A glance at the quarter rec­ords of the past will make this clear. Ithas taken the best men in the world forty­four years to reduce the record from 48?ito 471i; and sixteen years have elapsed be­tween Long's great records and the joint47% of Meredith and Dismond. In theConference, Merrill of Beloit held the rec­ord of 49'% for many years, until Daven­port of Chicago seven years ago establishedthe present two-turn record of 48'% (which,after allowing for the additional turn, is asecond slower than Dismond's), so thechances are that it .will be a long time be­fore another Long, Meredith or Dismondappears any place in the world; and theodds are much against his being a Confer­ence runner who finds the necessaryweather conditions on a one-turn track.Dismond's great 47% bids fair to endure asa Conference record for a decade or so.LERoy CAMPBELL., '15.Footbal1.-At the time this article waswritten, Chicago had played only twogames, as follows:Vanderbilt, October 13; Chicago 48, Van­derbilt o.Purdue, October 20: Chicago 27, Pur­due, o.Even from this scanty data, however, itis obvious that Chicago has the .makings ofa good team.

Of the presentsquad, Higgins '19, Rouse '20, and Kahn '20,are also in Hospital Unit 13 awaiting call.The "regular" team may be said to be, sofar, center, Gorgas '19; guards, Bondzinski'18 and Moulton '20; tackles, Cochrane '20and Jackson '20; ends, captain, Br elos '18and McDonald '20; quarter, Blocki '20;halves, Rouse '20 and Elton '20; full back,Higgins '19. Among the others are Reber'20, trying for center, Mellen '19, for guard;Kahn '20, for tackle and half ; Hutchinson'20, for end and quarter; Hinkle '20 andBradley '20, for end; Chappell '20, for quar­ter, and Mochel '20 and Annan '19, for half.Hutchinson and Annan returned two weekslate from ambulance driving in France.The men, though few, .are heavy. The"regular" line averages 180 pounds, includ­ing four men close to 200 pounds, and an­other almost 190. The backfield averages175, Higgins with his 210 bringing theweight up. They are fast ones. Gorgas andBondzinski are far more alert than last year.Cochrane and Jackson are as good a pair oftackles as Chicago has seen for some time,and Brelos is a very safe man at end. Be­hind the line Rouse is as fast a man as anycoach could ask, Elton is sturdy and de­pendable, and Blocki, who never played agame of football till this fall, seems a find­cool, a fair punter, a hard tackler, and bril-46 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEliant with the forward pass. As for Hig­gins, there is nobody to compare with himin the conference except Charpier of IUi­noise His 210 pounds is all bone and muscle;he runs very fast for so big a man, andwhen he hits an opponent simply carrieshim along. In the Purdue game he scoredfrom the five-yard line with tacklers, as theTribune said, "clinging to him like barna­cles to a pier." In both throwing and in­tercepting the forward pass, also, he is veryskilful, and he backs up the line on defencelike a Des] ardien. So far he has made fiveof the 'varsity's eleven touchdowns.The Carleton game, scheduled for Octo­ber 6, was cancelled because Carletonopened late this faU and had no team.Vanderbilt, on October 13, was very easy.Vanderbilt has this fall only two men of herlast year's squad, the rest being in govern­ment service. Her eleven was, therefore,very green, as well as very light. The boysfrom the south played, however, with, andin, a spirit never excelled on Stagg field.Once the umpire charged a Vanderbilt manwith holding. "I'm sorry, sir," said theplayer. "I didn't mean to do anything il­legal, and I shall try not to do it again." Atthe close of the game, battered and beaten, they grouped and gave a yell for Chicagothat sounded as real as if they had been thevictors. Every Chicagoan knew that thiswas not, as the phrase goes, a "representa­tive" Vanderbilt team, but as it representedVanderbilt's sporting spirit it was an elevento be proud of.The game with Purdue was expected tobe hard fought. Purdue had eight veteransback, and the men looked big and strong.They were slow, however, and proved tohave no chance. Higgins scored twice inthe first quarter, once on a thirty-yard runfollowing a cross-tackle buck, and once ona tackle plunge from the five-yard line. Justas time was about to be called for the sec­ond quarter, he threw a forty-yard pass, thefirst forward pass of the season for Chicago,to Brelos, who scored unopposed. In thefourth quarter he caught a Purdue pass, andran 55 yards for a touchdown, dodging oneman clean, stiff-arming another into mo­mentary unconsciousness, and outrunningtwo more. It was a remarkable exhibitionfor a man of his build. Purdue could notmake a first down in the first half. In thesecond half, by short forward passes, shegained somewhat, but never had the ball inher own possession within forty yards ofTEACHERS' AGENCY28 E.Jackson Blvd. Chicago Tothisorganiz?tion-national inscop,e-em-, players and teachers naturally turn In mak-Basion New York Birmlnghc:m Denver ing a survey of the whole educational fieldPortland Berkeley LoS Angeles for best teachers and teaching opportunities.The Colorado Teachers' AgencyA high-class Agency whose superior facilities appeal especial ly to those who are ava.ilable .forpositions as Superintendent, Supervisor, High School Principal, or special teachers m HIgh� School, Normal School and College.Communicate with FRED DICK, Manager, 504-505 Kittredge Building.

The game looked likea pretty fair test for Chicago, as approxi­mately the same eleven was beaten last yearonly 14-7, after a fierce battle.So far Stagg has allowed the men' to playnothing but straight football. Only six endruns and four forward passes have' beenused in two games, and not a play with anyelement of deception has been shown. Ninetouchdowns have been scored by line-buck­ing, one from an intercepted pass, and onefrom a forward pass. The probability isthat the same tactics will be followed in theN orthwestern game, and that Illinois willmeet an eleven of whose capacities it hasbeen able to form no idea. The remainder- of the schedule follows:October 27, Northwestern at Stagg Field.November 3, Illinois at Stagg Field.November 17, Minnesota at Minneapolis.November 24, Wisconsin at Stagg Field.Cross-country.-Prospects are very goodthis fall in spite of the absence from thesquad of those expected stars, CaptainTenney '18, who is in the Wyoming oil­fields, and Snyder '18; who is in a Canadianregiment; Otis '19, McCosh '19, Angier '18,Green '19 and Lewis '20, are all goodenough to worry any opponents. Otis isprobably the best man in the conferenceover five miles. Ames College has a verystrong lot of men out, and the fight inNovember will probably be between themand Chicago,So far the team has run time-trials only.On October 16 eight men went the full dis­tance, five miles, in Washington Park. Otisfinished first, three seconds ahead of Mc­Cosh; Angier, Cox, Lewis, McCorrnick.:Long and Blye followed in order. Thetime was said by Coach Tom Eck to' bevery fast. The course was level, but train­ing will be given later over such hills as canbe found. On October 25, in a three-miletrial, 'Otis won again in 15 :27 % seconds;'extraordinarily fast time. Again McCoshwas secorid, about thirty yards back. Lewisbeat out Angier" and Long for third.
