Beginning at the top with the President of theUnited States, who is also the president ofthe American Red Cross, college men areeverywhere. Mr. Wilson, as everyoneknows, is a college professor, and was president of Princeton University for eight years.The vice-president, Robert W. De Forest,is a Yale man and a Doctor of Laws; thesecretary, Dr. Stockton Axson, a professorin Princeton; the counselor, John W. Davis,a Washington and Lee graduate and anLL.D.The central committee of the Red Crossis composed entirely of college men: Mr.Taft, Mr. Eliot Wadsworth, the Secretaryof State, the Comptroller of the Currency,the Surgeons-General of the Army andNavy, and the Solicitor General. Twentydoctors' degrees are distributed amongthese seven men.On the War Council, the board appointedby the president which directs all RedCross activities, Mr. John D. Ryan and thechairman, Mr. Davison, are the two exceptions to the rule which we seem almost tohave established. Mr. Case, who has chargeof international relations, graduated fromYale in 1893, Mr. Cornelius N. Bliss, fromHarvard in 1897. Harvey D. Gibson, theCommissioner for France, is Bowdoin 1902.In Europe, the enormous task the RedCross has faced has been accomplished toa very great extent by men who are university trained. The Commissioner forEngland, William Endicott, is a Harvardman and overseer of Harvard College, asis Edgar H. Wells, the Deputy Commissioner, who was acting dean of the university. R. J. Perkins, Harvard '94, is Commissioner to Italy, and Harvey D. Gibson,Bowdoin '02, is Commissioner to France.At home the same prevalence of collegemen is observable. To mention only twoaside from the War Council: The DirectorGeneral of Civilian Relief in America is W.Frank Persons, a graduate of Cornell College, Iowa, and the Assistant Director General of Military Relief is Charles Blair ofCornell.And these men are not only college men,they are men who have been prominent inthe affairs of their college. Men prominentin athletics, like Foster Rockwell, the famous Yale quarterback, who is now Director of Canteens in England, — men whoseprominence in the intellectual life of their universities is attested by the letters whichfollow their names.These lists could be continued indefinitely. Unfortunately there are no figures yet available upon which statistics,even of the most rudimentary kind, can bebased. The personnel of the Red Cross,however, — in America as in France, Italy,England, Greece, Serbia, Palestine, Siberia,is very largely a college personnel. For theideals of the college man have pressed himinto service of one kind or another.In his announcement of the ChristmasRoll Call of the Red Cross, Mr.. Davisonsays:"From December 16 to 23 the lists will beopen for every American in every cornerof the world, so that it may be known thatthe whole nation at home and abroad is registered for the cause. The Red Cross wantsagain to give the world notice, not only thatAmerica can fight, but that to the last man,woman and child we stand four square formercy, honor and good faith among the nations."The Red Cross now has twenty-two million members. It seems fairly certain thatevery college man in the country is includedin that membership. This Christmas thechance will be given to everyone to pay hisdollar membership fee and add the weightof his name to the Red Cross message, — amessage of hope and good will to the wholeworld. This year the Red Cross is goingafter a 100% membership of the Americanpeople; a hundred million members. It isthe duty and the privilege of every collegeman in the country to help make the campaign a success.A New Profession for WomenCommu'nity recreation is now recognizedas an important factor in developing community spirit. The Fosdick Commissiondeems it indispensable. The Y. M. C. A.,the Y. W. C. A., the Knights of Columbus,the Jewish Welfare Board, the SalvationArmy and the War Camp Community Service have been unable to find a sufficientnumber of trained recreation leaders tosend into camps and adjacent cities hereand in France.Training courses to fit young women forclub and recreation leaders in industrialcommunities will be held by the YoungWomen's Christian Association, November29-December 20, in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Richmond, Va., and New York.This phase is distinctly a war service, butindustrial welfare work has come to stay.Women with a liking for executive positions or women trained. in athletics will findthe work congenial. Seventy-five leadersare already placed. Further informationcan be obtained from Miss Edna Studebaker, Y. W. C. A., 600 Lexington avenue,New York City.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAMERICAN UNIVERSITY UNION IN PARISThis Association of American University men maintains quarters in London Parisand Rome. Above is a view of the Paris quarters, formerly the famous Palais Royal Hotel. It is centrally located, at 8 Rue de Richelieu, and affords an unusual opportunity toUniversity men for rest, recreation and acquaintance while on leave in Paris. More thanone hundred University of Chicago men have already registered there. (See a list onpage 69, this issue.)University of ChicagoMagazineDECEMBER, 1918Events and DiscussionThe burden of many letters from alumniand undergraduates in France has beenwhen we get back — !Peace and They will soon be back.Reunion The war is over; theirgreat duty is done, theirgreat task accomplished. How shall we welcome them? Next June ought to be thegreatest reunion in the history of the university. The men in service will do theirbest to make it so. How about those ofus who stayed on the job at home? Wemust" plan how on a big scale. We wanta concentration of effort on a big week —athletic schedules arranged to that end, theBlackfriar show and the Dramatic Club performance, the prom, speakers who canspeak, group dinners planned not to conflict, a big assemblage and a big time. Wemust plan now on a big scale. We wantalumnus and alumna months in advance.Why not get the Auditorium for the principal meeting? The university is a big university; it has served in a big way; why notcelebrate its service on a big scale?Demobilization of the S. A. T. C. leagueon December 2, and will be completed bythe end of the quarter.Exit the The experiment provedS. A. T. C. a failure; and yet thatfailure was due in largepart to the greatest blessing of moderntimes, the end of the war. The need of officers having ceased, the enthusiasm ofthe men ceased accordingly. Even beforethat time, however, it had become evidentthat the plan was goihg unsatisfactorily.Real adjustment between the military andthe academic demands on the men seemedto be impossible. As a result the class-work suffered horribly. Instructors reportedforty or fifty per cent of their classes absent on military duties. In the big classeslike the War Aims, not more than a thirdof the men have been doing work up tothe 'regular university standard. The classesin trigonometry have been repeatedly rearranged so as to allow the poorer students another chance, and yet the percentage of failures is likely to be very high.A great many of the men in the pre-medicalcourses plan to take the quarter's work allover again, having found it quite impossible to do it adequately. The universityhas taken cognizance of the situation byallowing men to drop one course, even itthey were below standard in it, withoutpenalty, so as to permit of concentrationon the other two. Further action will permit the cancellation of the whole quarter'srecord for such students as desire it, if thetwo following quarters' work is satisfactorily maintained. On the whole, it is nowonder that at the faculty meeting on Nov.27, when the question of continuing or notTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcontinuing the S. A. T. C. was put before alarge attendance for a formal expression ofopinion, the vote was unanimous to discontinue — probably the first actually unanimous vote in a faculty meeting in the history of the institution. It may be interesting to know, by the way, that this expression of opinion had nothing to do with thegovernment's decision to demobolize atonce, that decision having been arrived atfor the whole country independently of anyparticular institution's desire.The reasons for the failure of the experiment lay on the surface. It was undertakenwithout sufficientWhy the knowledge of generalS. A. T. C Failed conditions, and it wascarried on without sufficiently definite agreement on what it wasmeant to accomplish. The supposition ofthe colleges was that was to give youngmen a chance at a little college educationbefore they were sent to camps for intensiveLraining as officers or non-coms or privates. The belief of the military authorities was that it was to establish a group ofsmall cantonments, in which privates intraining might get a lick and a promise ofacademic work. The military authorities,having the power, had their way. Kitchenpolice, sentry duty, orderly duty, gun-cleaning, a thousand things besides theregular drill, took precedence of study andattendance on classes. Study, even in thehomes, when it was permitted, was almostimpossible. Five men in one small room,with equal rights in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, interfered with concentration. As for "supervised study," itwas jocular. A typical case was of a manwhose work required the use of books whichare kept in Walker. A well-known member of the department of geology put thecase to the military authorities, who ruledthat the man must study with his company, whether he could get the necessarybooks or not. Just how the S. A. T. C. has affectedand will affect attendance cannot even yetbe stated. A conserva-The S. A. T. C tive estimate of theand Attendance members in the S. A.T. C. group is eighthundred, not including the vocational training-squad of nearly three hundred, nor thesailors from the Pier who were taking special work. Of these eight hundred, it ispossible that four hundred will return forwork next quarter — possible, but not probable. Many would not be able to return,not having reached in high school the standard necessary for entrance here in peacetimes. Many others will not be able toafford attendance. Others still will be affected by the fear of reconstruction, andthe desire to get a job while the getting isgood.The Effect ofthe War on theUniversityWill the war alter in any marked waythe policy or even the courses of the university? The answeris apparently in thenegative. Of coursethe plans for the medical school will go forward now with greatvigor. President Judson is on his wayhome, and will reach Chicago some timein January. As soon as he arrives, rapiddevelopments in the schemes of the medicalschool may be looked for. Otherwise thereseem to be no particular changes to be expected. The members of the faculty nowabsent on leave in war-service will probably all return by next October; many cfthem sooner, though no definite word hascome from any as yet. The College ofCommerce and Administration, aided bythe Williams bequest, and in the circumstances of reconstruction, may be expectedto develop largely, probably in part, by theaddition of a graduate school. Otherwisethere is no administrative hint of change.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 39Portrait by Louis BettsLA VERNE NOYESLa Verne Noyes, donor of Ida Noyes Hall, who presented to the University, at ameeting of the Board of Trustees held July 5, 1918, property consisting of real estateand leasehold interests valued at $2,500,000, to endow the La Verne Noyes Foundation.The object of this munificent and patriotic gift, as outlined in the July issue of The University of Chicago Magazine, is to pay tuition, "without regard to differences in sex,race, religion, or political party," for education at the University of Chicago for thosewho have served in the present war, and have been honorably discharged, or theirdescendants, as stated in the presentation: "It is -declared to be the purpose of thedonor in establishing the Foundation at the same time to express his gratitude for thosewho ventured the supreme sacrifice of life for their country and for the freedom ofmankind in this war, and also by giving them honor, to aid in keeping alive through thegenerations to come the spirit of unselfish, patriotic devotion without which no freegovernment can long endure or will deserve to endure."THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEOfficers of the S.

Including the Medical EnlistedReserve Corps men, who have been calledto active duty and transferred to the Student Army Training Corps, and the twohundred and fifty drafted men who havebeen sent here to take vocational workunder the supervision of civilian instructorsfurnished by the University, the number ofmen on active duty with the Student ArmyTraining Corps will be approximately sixteen hundred.

C. unitsbegan on December 2nd, and will continue ■until December 21st, by which time all ofthe units of the army will have been discharged from the service; some of the navalunits, however, may continue for a longer period. How successful these branches ofthe service would have been in developingofficer material can not be adequatelyjudged, for scarcely had they commencedwork when the war ended. They beganwith a vigor and eagerness, though, thatgave promise of considerable success, hadthey continued, in carrying out the purposeof their organization.The University of Chicago unit certainlywould have succeeded in developing officermaterial as well as any; and this success-would have been largely due to Major RipleyA. Dana and his officers. Major Dana is aman of highest ideals of service, of culture,and of hard work. The officers of his staffwork and act in the same spirit as theirhead. Major Dana and his officers at onceinspired respect and confidence in the men,and a determined and enthusiastic spirit ofwork and service was everywhere in evidence.ROLL OF HONORThe Roll of Honor 41>5fjf)f)f43f3f3f3f>f3f>f)f3f)f3f>f3f)fjf)f)f)f)f)f5f)f)f)fHarold E.

However, conditions are not changedgreatly. Activities are as yet sluggish. Ifwe were to speak of plans for the Winterquarter . . . but that is getting off thesubject.Speaking of peace — undergraduates,women particularly, indulged in celebrations early in November. On the afternoonof the false reports, our usually dignifiedwomen formed outside Cobb and lock-stepped about the campus with mighty enthusiasm. The parade ended at the Circle,to be followed by cheering and patrioticsongs. In view of this demonstration thereal armistice report which followed onMonday was received with comparativecalm. Classes were dismissed for the day.Men in the S. A. T. C. marched half-waydown town in the afternoon. In the eveninga mass meeting was held in Mandel, combining a peace celebration and United WarWork plea. Capt. Charles Merriam, justback from Italy, was the featured speaker.Delayed by our old friend, Spanish influenza, the first Symphony program wasnot given in Mandel until Nov. 5. Consequently many were the hearts welcomingthe orchestra, conducted this year by EricDe Lamarter. A second program will havebeen given by the time this issue is offthe press; the first of the special recitalsis scheduled for the 10th of December, theFlonzaley Quartet playing.Of customary November events there hasbeen a fair number, considering the condition of the campus. The League heldits Freshman Frolic, with the usual embel-ishments of supper, lantern parade andvaudeville in Mandel. Helen Thompsonacted as general chairman for the affair.Another woman's event was "ChicagoNight," held on Nov. 22; it was a "peppy"assembly, with much cheering, eating andspeaking. Dean Talbott, Miss Cronin, Mar-jorie Mahurin, Helen Sulzberger and Marion Llewellyn attended to this affair.After many teas and parties and a fastand furious rushing season in general thewomen's clubs pledged. The total number was 78, with Wyvern in the lead — 12new members. Owing to football conflicts,Score club could not give the usual pledgedance for the women; the dance will begiven Dec. 7 at Rosalie, we understand.All restrictions, by the way, on fraternityactivities have been removed by the WarDepartment, and fraternity men are preparing to resume business next quarter.One of the social events of the month —probably the Event — was the "strictly military function" (so said the Maroon), in other words, the ball given by Co. 13, Depot Brigade, Illinois Reserve Militia, inBartlett, November 23. Capt. George O.Fairweather and Mrs. Judson led the grandmarch. The U. S. Naval Band furnished themusic, and also gave a brief concert preceding the dance. During the evening various vaudeville acts were presented bymembers of the S. A. T. C. Major Danaand other officers of the post were guestsof honor. Proceeds of the ball went towardbuying new uniforms for Company 13, members of which wore their "equipment" toprove the proceeds would have to go a longway.On November 29 the Dramatic Club offered its Autumn quarter productions before an invited audience. Although no report has appeared up to the time of goingto press, we surmise that the plays wereas successful as could be expected with thecanceling of S. A. T. C. parts at the lastminute — supervised study could not beevaded. Frank O'Hara, '15, Carlin Cran-dall, Ruth Lovett, Margaret Foss and Frances Hesler directed the plays presented.They were:"How He Lied to Her Husband," byBernard Shaw, with Carlin Crandall, Elizabeth Brown and Charles Breasted."Op O' Me Thumb," by Richard Bryceand Frederick Fenn, with Ruth Lovett,Charles Breasted, Fern Broadbent, MayFreedman, Marilla Cudworth and Ruth Mallory."How Cupid Came to Earl's Court," byCosmo Hamilton, with Carol Mason, Margaret Foss, Arthur Meling, Vories Fisher,Kathryn Stevens, Theodore Rosenak andOlive Scott."The Snare and the Fowler," by BeulahMarie Dix, with Frances Hesler and J. W.Dupries.Of famous visitors there has been agoodly share. The French EducationalMission came late in November, Lieut.Louis Cazamin, Dr. Etienne Burnet, Prof.Emmanuel de Martonne and Lieut.-Col.Theodore Reinach delivering public lectures. Lord Charnwood also lectured atthe University. While not exactly a visitorAssociate Prof. "Freddy" Starr returnedfrom Guatemala, only to go to New Yorkfor a stay, thus disappointing those looking forsnap courses. Associate Prof. S. H.Clark, just back from Europe, recently gavea splendid talk on trench life and spirit.The Poetry Club has offered its annual$25 dollar prize for Universitv poets. Thejudges, William Saphir, Mrs". Otto Freerand Mrs. Arthur Aldis, are busv at worksorting out the many manuscripts. Organized Red Cross work and entertainment ofthe S. A. T. C. men during week ends, inaddition to drilling, seems to be the workof the W. S. T. C. now. John Joseph, '20LETTER BOX 43The Letter BoxAn excerpt from a letter written by Harvey Harris, '14, a member of the varsityfootball team in '12, '13 and '14. Harris received his commission as second lieutenantat the Second Officers' Training camp atFort Sheridan and later was made first lieutenant in the Field Artillery. When_ theAmerican Tank Division was started, Lieut.Harris transferred to the tanks.I must tell you of the pleasant surpriseI had this morning. As usual I was outgiving instructions in tank driving — a sortof finishing touch to men who have alreadybeen through it in a preliminary way. Ageneral's car drove up. You can always tellthem — white star or stars (depending onhow much of a general) on a red background. At a distance I recognized General— . Accompanying him were twoother men in khaki, the one a lieutenant,the general's aide, the other Mr. JuliusRosenwald.As they came nearer I clicked the oldheels together and "nicked" the generalhard. The general said, "Lieutenant Harris,this is Mr. . Not being a military guythe addressed Mr. broke in, absolutely interrupted the general with "For good sake,Harris, how are you? Glad to see you.Saw your folks not long ago and they areall fine. Why, General — he was one of ourbest men at the University."This was beginning to get my goat andso I carried on with "Sir, is it your wishto have a tank maneuver for Mr. Rosenwald?" He replied that it was and so I gotmy best sergeant, told him to take theshell-holes and the trenches and then hitfor the woods, 300 ngters away. It wentoff great, just like a '■reus horse and I feltlike the trainer receiving the plaudits of theaudience. Just then the tank hit a tree atthe edge of the woods, went up on end andthen disappeared. "He's tipped over,"yelled Mr. Rosenwald. "We'll see," I said.We went over. Tipped over nothing — itwas moving right along, riding over stumpsof trees, walls and everything. Then itbacked out just as easily. "The sight of alifetime," said J. R. Even the general wasenthusiastic.We got a suit of overalls, black withgrease, and managed to get our guest inthe tank without banging his head or cutting him up. He stood up acting as gunner,and the sergeant gave him a ride over thecourse. When he returned he said it was agreat experience and asked if he had takenthe shell holes. He had. Although he hada good driver who minimized every bump,he had forgotten to look out the slits to seewhere he was going while bracing himselfand holding on. He got the sensation anyway."Thank you, lieutenant," and anothergood "nick" for the general and finis.

It is probably nowstationed near Limoges.If a long, tall, skinny individual had beenseen running around this encampment inpajamas, waving a letter and invitingeverybody to read parts of it, it wouldonly have been doing as I felt like doingwhen I awoke at noon and found yourletter under my pillow the other day. . .There had been a letter famine for a weekor two and yours came with a couple frommy immediate ancestral chain, so that youcan see what an effect it must have produced.Also you must think that it's a prettynice war when a fellow awakens at noonwearing pajamas. Well, of course, it's oneof the luxuries of the way-behind-the-linestyle of fighting that one can have andmaintain pajamas, but even at that the"noon" part must sound inexcusable — although there's a reason, namely, that Iwork nightly from 7:30 to 7:30, whichmakes my noon my midnight.This being Monday morning, or the tailend of Sunday night, I felt it desirable totake a day away from sleep yesterday, andspend it in the interesting world outsideof the big chicken-wire fence which surrounds the hospital to keep the hospital inand Limoges out. Jerome and I hadplanned to take a bicycle ride to a neighboring village and see an ancient castlewhose ruins are there, but that was not tobe, for the renters of bicycles, who haveno trouble in finding American riders forTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEtheir terrible and ancient contraptions, decided that, since it was beginning to rainand might continue, that they would rentno wheels that day.But we were going to go with a Frenchlad of sixteen whom I met one evening.. . He expected us to call around withour bicycles, but since we couldn't get themwe walked over. Madame Bouchemousse(that is exactly a sneeze— I'v often wondered how to spell one) invited us to takedinner there, and of course we accepted.She is some madame, inclined to be stout,good-natured and as happy as can be, andquite an intelligent woman.We went with her to the market-place —she told us she was going and we went forthe walk. I told her I'd go to carry herbasket, but she laughed and thought I wasquite plebeian, I guess, for here all theladies who can, go to the market in state,followed by their maids with a bag tocarry home the purchases.The Rue of the Boucherie is a most interesting place. It has South Water streetbacked off the map. It is a narrow,crooked, hilly street, where absolutelynothing but meat is handled. The sidewalks are not three feet wide, the streetis eight or ten and has a pump in the middle so that there is a shallow gutter onboth sides through which dirty water runs.The butcher shops are all in permanentbuildings on either side and are wide openin front all day, although at night steelshutters unroll from the top of the bigshop fronts and cover up the whole frontlike the steel curtain of a theater and areabsolutely thief proof.If the organization of the American armyleaves one word for posterity it will surelybe "Buddy." A buddy is a comrade, andeveryone speaks of his buddy and callsevery one else "Buddy." If a Yank meetsyou in the street and wants a match oranything, he'll call you "Buddy." It's thegeneral name for all of us.A portion of a letter written by ShermanCooper, '18, from Fortress Monroe, Va.:Have some real news this time — that is,I've had a little experience worth talkingabout. I went up in an areoplane yesterday, looped the loop four times, made sometail spins, side skids, and about everythingelse that the pilot knew how to do. Landedsafe, though a bit dizzy and "seasickish,"but very much thrilled, elated and proud.Today I'm quite the guy around the schooland barracks. They all want to know justwhat I did and how I felt.I must tell you what surprised me mostabout flying. The whole thing felt different from what I expected, but one thing inparticular was a complete surprise to me.It may be well known, but I have never heard of it, and had never read of it. To-wit— most of the time, while we were goingalong at sixty miles per, or banking, or anything else, my sensation was a stationaryone. That is, I felt as if we were quite motionless, hanging in the air on nothing, withthe earth moving slowly, very slowly beneath us, or turning rapidly around beneathus, or coming toward us. For instance,when we would bank and make a curve, itwould seem to me that we hadn't moved atall, but that the earth had suddenly becomevery lopsided, up on one side and down onthe other, and was rapidly rotating about apoint immediately beneath us. It was thatthat made me dizzy. It makes the aviatorsdizzy, too, many of them, unless they keeptheir eyes on the indicators. When welooped, it again seemed to me that we weresitting still and that the earth before usturned away, the sun moved in front of usand then beneath us, and then suddenlyeverything was all right again. After sometime I suppose this sensation would changeto the real one of rapid motion. Of courseI knew I was moving at a rapid rate, butmost of the time I didn't feel that wayThe air seemed to be rushing past at aterrific rate.Percy Graham, '19, former quarterbackand pole vaulter, writes from Italy on theproper way to fight the Hun in the air. Hehas been in France and Italy for a year.Excerpts from his letter follow:A man going into a fight with the uppermost thought in his mind that of saving hisneck, is in greater danger of losing saidportion than an aggressive fighter is. Justlike in football. The harder you hit a manwhen tackling him, the less chance of yourbeing hurt. That is a fact I know to betrue. And in hitting hard you make a surerand better tackle.And in our game, a flyer can go in soeasy that he never gets near danger, and sodoes not get hurt. But he does no goodeither. In my mind you want to go in hardin an air battle and fight because you wantto kill, because you are madder than h — 1.Then you have got the best chance of coming out with your life.If you hit too carefully some boche willsneak up on your tail while you are beingcareful about some other boche. But if youare tearing in, shooting and jerking yourmachine all over in a mad manner, andtearing in at another angle, there isn't muchchance that any boche will get a good shotin. Well, if it ever clears up, I can get achance to try out this method.There is one thing I . am thankful for,and that is that we will weather the winterwell. There is a big woods about fiftyyards behind our barracks where we get ourwood. Therefore there will be no shortageof fuel. Our equipment of flying clotheswill also help keep us comfortable.LETTER BOX 45A Letter to Miss Greenacre from HelenHendricks, '07American Y. W. C. A., Hostess House,Hotel Petrograd, 33-35 Rue Caumartin,Paris, October 18, 1918.Dear Alice: Here I am at the Petrogradon my week's leave (we can have one weekoff out of every three months) and your letter comes plowing in. My, but I was gladto see it tonight. It is the only one I got.33 Rue Caumartin is my address. We areno longer at Rue LaFayette. But I'm gladI haven't missed your letters.I was thinking of you just at the momentyour letter came, for I was downstairs inthe office looking over the College Women's Registry. There is a big book on atable and an invitation to write name, college, year, home, branch of war service,duration of war service, address in Franceand remarks. I found a number of U. of C.graduates, but no one I knew personally. Iasked our secretary in charge how thescheme worked and she said very well.They are ready to enlarge the plans as interest seems to justify and to look after theregistry in any way that seems best. I believe the majority of the women over hereare college women. This hotel seems morelike a college dormitory. You take yourtowel over your arm and go from floor tofloor in search of a tub not in use and meetother kimonoed figures likewise pursuingthe best hot tub baths in France. Mosthotels have hot water only on certain daysnow.I have enjoyed my week in Paris morethan I ever imagined possible. The merefact of being in a steam-heated room is acause for revelry. As for the shops, theboulevards, the wide views, — I am like achild on its first trip to the city. I am convinced now that the way really to appreciate Paris is to spend three months in theprovinces.My week ends tomorrow and by tomorrow night I shall be back in Bourges hardon the job.With best of wishes,Helen Hendricks.Building 831, 151st Depot Brigade,Camp Devens, Mass., Nov. 2, 1918.Dear Mr. Editor: Here am I — even I —in the war at last as a first lieutenant. Ihave been here in Camp Devens for a littleover a month and am hoping now to getthrough my transfer to the Twelfth Division before it goes overseas in a couple ofweeks. You see the 151st Depot Brigadeis the permanent organization of CampDevens; the Twelfth Division is simply thedivision that happens to be training here atthis time. So I have to get out of theDepot Brigade and into the Division or Idon't go to France.It is certainly a long way, not merely inmiles but in psychological experience, fromReno, Nevada, to Camp Devens, in the midst of New Ireland. I feel for the thirdtime as if I were just at the beginning ofcollege, only a much rougher sort of college than even the one in the wild west ofNevada. I am certainly a freshman as faras military matters go. There are some fellows of a fine type here, as well as theSyrians, the Italians, the comparatively recent immigrants generally, who are likeable because they are in earnest. It is myfirst experience in close contact with thereal New Englanders, the farmer boys fromMaine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Ifind them just about as human as our Ne-vadans with all their so-called western freedom.Now, if you could get through a copy ofthe Magazine to me I would appreciate it.My copy, if my subscription has not runout, has evidently been held up in Reno.Sincerely yours,Lieut. Gustavus S. Paine, '08.Part of a Letter from Helen A. RantlettThe Lyceum, 8 Rue de Penthievre, Paris.This is a French club. It is one of achain of Lyceum clubs scattered throughEurope, with an international organization,but a good deal. of autonomy. You musthave heard of the Lyceum of London,which is the mother house, so to speak.The president of this is the Duchessed'Uzes, douairiere, who is a feminist, andbacks her beliefs to the point of financingthe club. I suspect that there are gravedeficits in its club accounts, for since thewar its membership has dropped from ninehundred to four hundred. Like everythingelse in France, it is welcoming the strengthof America to put it on its feet.The University Union, to which I havenever gone, is, of course, for men only. Ibelieve it is at 8 Rue de Richlieu. I seenotices of meetings there constantly in theHerald. But the "Hotel Petrograd," at 33Rue Caumartin, was taken over last winter, while I was at home, by the Y. W. C.A., and seems to be a general clearing-housefor war workers. I have been there onceor twice in search of friends. It has arestaurant open to men and women whichwas excellent in the winter. It seems tofluctuate. However, the hotel is an excellent place to go for a newcomer and mostorganizations take their workers directlythere. I might remark that there are veryfew French who live at this club, the majority being English and Americans, war-workers in Paris, and others from the frontdrop in periodically. Most French womenhave homes and regard our habits of livingin public with deep, if veiled, disapproval.I think you will be interested in one morething. I believe you all know about mygetting Mr. Freund to take a letter to awoman lawyer in the invaded part ofFrance, Mile. Moreau. When I arrived herethis spring her aunt was very unhappy overher having been taken, one of some fourTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEhundred women of good position in_ thenorth of France, hostage to the prisoncamp of Holzminden. It was then possibleto write her directly, but I was so embarrassed about what to say that I compromised on sending her a couple of packets of eatables. But last week the plans forreleasing the hostages were carried through,and she reached Paris, having elected to return here instead of to Douai, her father'shome. When I went down to see her,though she is not the demonstrative type,she greeted me: "Permettes-moi que jevous embrasse, vous avez ete si gentillepour moi." It appears that the letter fromher aunt in Paris by way of Chicago gavethem a great deal of pleasure and was something to tell all their friends about. It appears that Mr. Freund's sister knew thewife of the military governor of Douai, soit was sent to him, and it appears that hetook it down himself, and gave it to them,instead of merely letting them hear it read.If you run across Mr. Freund you might tellhim how much pleasure he gave. Perhapshe wishes now there were some one in aposition to do the same with his family, forhe must be cut off from them.Mile. Moreau, like the soldiers, does nottake the situation as hardly as those whomerely look on. She says one must nottake it "trops a la tragique." Her little aunthas been quite eating her heart out abouther, while she turns up herself quite poised,and without any special bitterness. Shesays there were no real atrocities at Douai,though the soldiers carried off by commandall of their copper utensils (which are usedbeyond anything else in France) and thewool of their mattresses. The houses leftempty were likely to be despoiled and someof the wealthier inhabitants were asked tomove out of their homes to give them upto the German authorities, but in generalthe inhabitants were not molested. She wasnurse in a hospital, which for some monthswas carried on by the French, with ofcourse control by the Germans, and afterthat she practiced at the bar. The Germans had every interest in the keeping oforder by the civil authority and took verylittle account of what went on in the courts,but did suppress the court of appeal becauseof some disagreement.It is ten o'clock, so I feel that I mustnot go on using this machine, for Frenchpartitions were never considered to be forthe purpose of shutting out sound.Since 1 wrote our troops have been covering themselves with honor, and if weAmericans in Paris had not had good training in the virtue of modesty in the earlieryears of the war we should certainly findit hard to practice it now.Sincerely,Helen A. Ranlett.P. S. — As I reread I hear an avion buzzing in the air. Of course, it is French;I suppose a patrol. About Y. W. C. A. Work in RussiaMiss Elizabeth Boies, '08, head of theY. W. C. A.'s war work in Russia, writesconcerning the gymnasium class in Moscowwhich Miss Helen Ogden of Orange, N. J.,has been directing:"It never happened before in Russia-University girls and store girls playinggames together — as American girls play-as friends, is a new sight in Russia, andone which has come about through the enthusiasm which the Russian girls feel forAmerican gymnastics."Miss Ogden writes: "There is no standardworking day. Many girls finish at threeo'clock and others not until five or six.The Association's greatest chance to makefriends with the Russian girls now isthrough the channel of food. Many of thegirls leave home early in the morning aftera breakfast consisting of black bread andtea without milk or sugar; at noon theyhave thirty minutes for lunch of the samekind, with perhaps the addition of a soup,and those who work until six have a half-hour in the afternoon for tea. On accountof the shooting and robbery in the streetsafter dark, the girls are afraid to stay outlate, which makes it necessary to hold allthe classes, lectures and dance classes between four o'clock and eight. This meansthat the girls who come to the classes haveno time for a substantial meal until theyreach home between eight and nine o'clock.Food in Moscow is not only very expensive but very difficult to buy, for allnecessities are sold only by card. We havebeen able to procure bread and sugar cardsfor a small proportion of the Y. W. C. A.membership. Our ration of food at presentis a quarter funt (a "funt" is % of a pound)of bread daily and one funt of sugar amonth.When we serve sugar we cut the ordinary lump into four parts, one part to eachperson.The girls come in ravenous from thelong walk in the cool air, for it is necessaryto walk no matter what the weather because of the congested tramways and thepoor service. All we are able to servethem is tea and black bread. They couldand would eat six slices of it, but we canonly give them four, because some must besaved for late-comers.The girls are pinched and underfed andneed more hearty food than we can givethem. One girl who dropped out of thegymnasium class on being asked why shehad not come, said, 'Oh, I like it very much,but it makes me so hungry and we have solittle to eat at home.'It is wonderful, though, to see the changem the girls' faces after their exercisesgames and folk dances."LETTER BOX 47Excerpts from a Letter from ProfessorStarrCity of Guatemala,October 23, 1918.I enclose a postcard that you may seewhat this entire city was like, ten monthsago. It was a dreadful destruction. Theyare making a fine effort at reconstructionand have reached the point where everyday's work now shows in improvement.I reached this city at night on the 2nd —just three weeks ago. Then there werewaste-heaps and ruined walls everywhere.Since then, entire streets have been cleanedout and now they are digging out and relaying tramway tracks. The air is full ofdust from this digging and from tearingdown of old walls. There have been several sharp shocks of earthquake since Ihave been here. Most of them are of thethumping, vertical, type, like a great blowfrom below. On Friday night I had theseverest shock I have ever experienced. Ihappened to be on the railroad in a smallprivate car. The shock was of horizontaltype and was long continued. It was as ifgiant hands had seized the car and shookit from side to side. This is more like theshocks I know in Mexico and Japan, andis less feared here than the other kind. Wewere at a station and at the shock all thedogs of the village broke into a chorus ofbarking, which lasted for fully five minutes.I have already overstayed my plan oftime in this republic. Do not know whenI can go out. There is yellow fever on thePacific side, and Salvador (where I amoverdue), and Honduras have imposed astrict quarantine. I am now in quarantinehere. I want to visit Quirigua, Livingston,Rio Dulce, etc., on the Atlantic side, butcannot go there until I have spent sevendays here. You see I went down throughthe Pacific side — spending a full week there,some of it in the infected centres. I hopeto get away on the 25th. The Atlantic side,however, is now being ravaged by Spanishinfluenza. I shall not be surprised, whenI return here, after five or six days downthere, if I may be quarantined again. How-the republics short of two weeks anyway —ever, I can surely not get to any other ofand have no certainty that I will be permitted to go farther. I try to keep occupied. Am heaping up a veritable Guatemala library.Professor Starr returned to the University in November. He found it impossibleto complete his work in the southern republic because of the quarantine imposed onaccount of the prevalence of typhoid andyellow fever in the district. The entire cityof Guatemala was destroyed last year bythe earthquake, leaving only one buildingstanding. The population is now living inrudely constructed shacks. A Word From, Our Second Line of DefenseU. of C. Alumni Magazine:Greetings from another on our secondline of defense — that is, at one of the Du-Pont munitions plants. I have the mostfascinating duty of helping with the recreation (Y. W. C. A.) for women in this shell-loading plantIf you know any men or women notworking at something for which they arespecially fitted, tell them they won't derive more satisfaction out of anything thanthey will find in working shoulder toshoulder with someone else in such a greatinspiring democratic community as this —teacher and student, mother and wife, college graduate and illiterate mountain white,— all working and playing and living together, swimming in the beautiful YorkRiver, dancing at the Y. M. C. A. or Y. W.C. A., cheering a blue devil's speech, orsinging "The Star Spangled Banner!" We'reall one, and we all have a common bondand reason for being here.With best wishes as ever,Frances E, Peck (1915).PRESIDENT JUDSON SENDSCABLEGRAM FROM PERSIA> The University recently received the following cablegram from President Judson,from Teheran, the capital of Persia:"Rejoicing in victorious peace. Hope theUniversity soldiers are safe."President and his party were distributingfood, clothing and medicine to the peopleof Teheran and vicinity. President Judsonleft Teheran Dec. 1 and will arrive in Paristhe middle of December. He will return tothe University some time in January.The following appreciation expresses briefly what we have received in many letters. It is one ofthe things that convince us thatour work is worth while:Dear Editor:I enclose a check for $1.50. Idon't know how I would ever getalong without the U. of C. Magazine. It most certainly is "the tiethat binds." It is my chief way ofkeeping track of old U. of C.friends. Best wishes for the Council and the Magazine in the comingyear. Cordially yours,G. R. Sc'hottenfels (1911).THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAlumni AffairsALUMNI COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETINGThe regular monthly meeting of the Executive "Committee of the Alumni Council washeld on Wednesday, November 20, at 8 :15p. m., in the Alumni office, Cobb 3 D.

The Chicago Alumnae Club will take action thereonat the next annual meeting. In view of thegeneral vote for the increase, which wasmade necessary by greatly increased costof publishing the magazine, the executivecommittee voted unanimously for the increase, to take effect January 1, 1919.After a discussion of financial matters themeeting adjourned at 9:45 p. m.College Alumni AssociationA meeting of the executive committee ofthe College Alumni Association was held inthe alumni office on Wednesday, November20. There were present: Frank McNair,chairman ; Marian Palmer, John F. Moulds,Roy Nelson and A. G. Perriot. ElizabethW. Robertson and Emory Jackson sent inwritten notices of acceptance of any actiontaken, and specially voted in favor of increase in the subscription rate to the Magazine.After consideration of increased expenseitems connected with the Magazine, it wasmoved that the subscription rate to theMagazine, including annual dues to the association, be increased to $2.00 ; unanimouslycarried. Mr. Moulds discussed the generalfinancial condition of the association.As to vacancies in the association's representation in the Council owing to war service,it was decided to postpone action on Earl D.Hostetter and Harold H. Swift, because ofthe probability, under present conditions, oftheir early return to civilian life. The vacancies of Dorothy Edwards, elected last June asdelegate to the Conucil for two years, andShirley Farr, holdover for one year, causedby their resignations upon leaving for a definite term of service in France, were filled by unanimous vote as follows : (1) For the two-year term, Leo F. Wormser, '05; (2) for theone-year term, Mrs. Lois Kaufman Markham, '08.A general discussion of alumni affairs followed.Annual Football Dinner by the Universityof Chicago Alumni ClubOn Tuesday, November 19, at 6 :30 p. m.,the University of Chicago Alumni Club ofChicago gave its annual dinner to the football team at the University Club. WalkerMcLaury, president of the club, presided.There were over sixty present; a spirit of enthusiasm prevailed.Professor Merriam spoke on his recentexperience in Italy, sketching the situation inItaly at the time of his arrival there lastspring and outlining the German methods ofpropaganda. He showed what sacrifices theItalians had made toward the cause. It wasone of the most interesting addresses evergiven to the club. Mr. Stagg briefly reviewedthe difficult condition under which he hadbeen attempting to maintain a football team atthe University. He stated that this wouldvery likely be one year in which the University did not win a game, but that inasmuchas his team was twice completely wrecked bythe transferring of his men to training camps,and as he had less than one-half the timeavailable for practice that is obtained atother conference universities and, further,as, with the exception of one man, the entiresquad is composed of freshmen, some ofthem never having played football before,the situation was such that victories couldhardly be expected. However, the team always showed a willing, fighting spirit. It wasthe general belief that Mr. Stagg's attitudeof at least "carrying on," regardless of thediscouraging conditions, was laudable; "theold man" and the team were cheered.Major Riley A. Dana, Commandant of theS. A. T. C. at the University, spoke on themilitary situation, and urged that universalmilitary training be encouraged in America.He paid Mr. Stagg a splendid compliment onhis sportsmanship because he found Mr. Staggalways ready and willing to sacrifice everyfootball interest where that interest was seriously endangered by the transferring of hismen to Officers' Training Camps.The meeting was held in the spirit of "carrying on" a tradition, and in this respect it wasmost successful. The Club is to be congratulated upon its success on this occasion.Dinner Given for the Women Law StudentsOn October 25th, former women studentsof the law school gave a dinner to the present women students and to the facultv ladiesat the Chicago College Club. Mrs'. Bige-AFFAIRS 49low, Mrs. Bills and Mrs. Freund were allunable to attend because of the influenza.Mrs. Hall, Mts. Hinton, Mrs. Mechem andMiss Talbot attended, together with practically all of the law school women aboutChicago. It was reported that Dean Hallhas gone into service, and is now a majorin the Judge Advocate's department. Hewas in Washington but is stationed in Chicago now. Mr. Bigelow is teaching political economy and also Military Law to theS. A. T. C, and Mr. Freund, Mr. Hintonand Mr. Bills are very busy trying to adjust the few courses and small classes tothe individual needs of the forty.NOTICEThe Law School Association asks thehelp of all of its members in the followingmatter:It is sending a letter to all members inservice or in war work and asks a reply,which is intended to become a part of apermanent war file — a kind of autographedroll of honor. When people go to war, theydo not often take the time to notify theirAlumni Office; and it has been most difficultto get any adequate lists outside of Chicago. Each law school man and woman isasked, therefore, to take this request personally, and also to act as a committee ofdistribution to see that it reaches all otherlaw school men and women, and particularly those in service from his own neighborhood.The association should like to have itsnext meeting, near Christmas or the NewYear, be largely a showing of the membersabsent in service or war work. The warlist now includes only about 75 names andmust be incomplete. If you can not do anything else, kindly send in a postal card,that they may know their letter has reachedyou and may have something to representyou in the war file. Send it to the LawSchool Association, Alumni Office, University of Chicago.The Chicago Alumna; ClubThe Chicago Alumna: Club held its opening fall meeting at Ida Noyes Hall on December 2nd at 2 p. m. Miss ElizabethWallace addressed the club on "Infant Welfare Work in France." The annual Christmas luncheon will be given at the CollegeClub on December 31st, at 12:30. An interesting resume of the work of University ofChicago girls in France will be read at thismeeting. A FULL REPORT ON THE MEETINGOF THE EASTERN ALUMNICLUB OF NEW YORKThe Eastern Alumni Association of theUniversity of Chicago held its most successful informal gathering as the guests of Mr.and Mrs. Frank A. Vanderlip at their estate"Beechwood" at Scarborough-on-the-Hud-son, on the evening of October 19, 1918.From start to finish there was a spirit othospitality and good cheer which placedeveryone at his ease. The Alumni wereinvited for five o'clock in the afternoon; itturned out to be a most glorious afternoonwith the sun setting over the New Jerseyhills across the Hudson River and bringingout the beautiful tints of autumn foliage onthe spacious grove of the Vanderlip estate.Mr. and Mrs. Vanderlip, together withPresident A. T. Stewart, of the EasternAlumni Association, and several ex-presidents, received in the library. The informal reception gave an opportunity for therenewing of many old acquaintances andthe record of the guest book shows the attendance of many old friends who havelong been missed from Eastern Alumnigatherings. Following the reception, aninformal buffet supper was served in several of the adjoining rooms. Mr. Vanderlip,as host, made everyone comfortable, andMrs. Vanderlip introduced us to her veryattractive children, who, we hope, will follow in the foosteps of their illustrious parents and attend the U. of C.The evening program was run off in the"Beechwood Play House" connected withthe Scarborough School on the Vanderlipestate. After an inspection of the building,which is a gift of the Vanderlips, and surelyshows the influence of U. of C., we weregathered together in the Auditorium.The first number on the evening's program was an exhibition of dancing by theyounger pupils of Isadora Duncan. Theirgrace and abandon induced Dr. E. E. Slosson to say that at last he knew what wasthe trouble with his education — he shouldhave gone to this school.President A. T. Stewart presided and Introduced the following speakers:Mr. Allan Burns, of the Carnegie Foundation, who spoke of the Americanizationwork of the Foundation, of which he hascharge. He particularly emphasized the importance of our making our foreign bo'rncitizens realize by actions as well as wordsthat this is a true democracy and one whichstands for equality and justice.Prof. Herbert A. Miller, also of the Carnegie Foundation, in charge of the investigation of the problems of the subject racesof Europe, and particularly of the Czechoslovak question, spoke of the splendid workof President Masearyk, of the^Czecho-Slo-vaks, and of the Declaration of Independence of these subiect races, which has sincebeen promulgated from Independence HallTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEPhiladelphia. He brought out the pointthat there are over ten million of thesepeoples in the United States and that they,therefore, have a very important influenceand are entitled to the special considerationwhich is now being given them.Miss E. E. Langley, who is in New Yorkcompleting her work for a Master's degreeat Columbia, but who has recently beenresident at the U. of C, spoke of the manyactivities in connection with the war whichhave changed the entire aspect of the U.of C. Campus.Professor S. W. Stratton, head of theBureau of Standards at Washington, D. C,told us something of the work of that department. In passing, he mentioned thatthis department was started while Mr. Vanderlip was Assistant-Secretary of the Treasury and was organized very largely throughhis personal interest. He told us some extremely interesting things of the war workof his bureau. The Liberty Motor wasstandardized and tested under the supervision of and in the laboratories of the Bureauof Standards, and special tests were madeso as to be sure of the motor's performanceunder all the atmospheric conditions whichit would have to face in actual use. Themotor, he said, had proved 100% efficientand with the exception of some very minoradjustments was being turned out in quantity, exactly in accordance with the modelwhich was developed in our laboratories.He also announced that since the beginningof the war, his department had at last beenable to secure accurate records of wavelengths and these are now the standard formeasurement which will doubtless beadopted throughout the world, so that theold standard yard-stick may be thrownaway and we have at last an indestructiblenatural standard. Incidentally he explainedthat in order to photograph these wavelengths it was necessary to develop a newphotographic process, and this process hasproven of tremendous value in connectionwith the war, as, by means of it, it is possible to photograph the terrain from anairplane through a heavy mist, and still obtain a perfect picture of the landscape. Allof our aerial photographers are now making use of this new process.Dr. E. E. Slosson, editor and militaryexpert of the "Independent," and honorary-president of the Eastern Alumni Association, concluded the speaking with' a wordof good cheer to all, and then turned thelights out and the moving-picture operatoron. The pictures of the June Convocationand Alumni Reunion at the U. of C. Quarter Centennial were sufficient to prove thatChicago lived up to its reputation as the"windy city" and that the Convocation wentahead in spite of wind and weather.In the Guest Book the following signed:Messrs. and Mesdames E.

At present the kindergarten is indanger of being abandoned for lack of funds.This would leave many little children with,no place to go and no one to look afterthem at home. An alumna, anxious to savethe kindergarten, has made a contributionto the Settlement for that purpose. Hergift, though generous, will not carry thework; our $300 added will insure itWe wish to thank those who respondedto the hrst call and we ask them to considerthis letter a report to date. We ask allhose who have not yet made their con-\ltl S t0 d° S?,at their earliest conven-lence- Yours sincerely,t-, , Ethel Preston,... Delegate to the Settlement BoardAlice Greenacre, Helen NorrisDelegates to Collegiate Bureau.51AthleticsThe SeasonAs predicted last month, the eleven wentthrough the season without a victory. Therecord was as follows:October 19, Municipal Pier 14, Chicago 7.November 2, Purdue 7, Chicago 3.November 9, Michigan 13, Chicago 0.November 16, Northwestern 21, Chicago 6.November 23, Illinois 28, Chicago 0.November 20, Minnesota 7, Chicago 0.In the Purdue and Northwestern games,Chicago had a chance to win. Purdue gota fluke touchdown in the final quarter, however; and, two days before the Northwestern game Reber, the center, was sent bythe government to Fortress Monroe,whence he was returned on the followingWednesday! By the other four teams Chicago was outclassed. Such was her fightingspirit, however, that a good break in theluck might have returned her victoriousover all but Illinois, which was easily theclass of western college teams this fall, andcould probably at the close of the seasonhave beaten either the Pier or Great Lakes.The Minnesota GameOn November 30 Chicago played Minnesota. It was hugely outweighed and greatlyoutspeeded; again and again the Minnesotabacks simply ran away from their pursuers.It had not won a game all season. In thesecond week it had lost every member ofits back field but one, and a couple of linemen. It had suffered from injuries as onlya light team, with a tremendous schedule,no time for hardening practice, and no timefor recuperation can suffer (and perhapsthe worst loss of the whole season was"Johnny" Johnson, now a first lieutenant,the best conditioner in the west). It hadeverything to lose, and nothing to gain.And Minunesota had the ball on the four-yard line, first down, and couldn't put itover! You young gentlemen and ladies wholike a sporting fight should have seen thatone inside the five-yard line. It was wortha whole season of disappointments. Menwho can fight like that can be defeated, butthey can't be beaten. Regulars Lost During the SeasonThe list of Chicago regulars out for allor nearly all the games is as follows:Cole, quarter; Crisler, half; Hutchinson,half; Diygert, full; MacDonald, end; Hinkle,end, all sent to Camp McArthur beforeany conference game was played. Reber,center, sent to Fortress Monroe just before the Northwestern game. Stagg, quarter, broken collarbone; Neff, half, ligamenttorn in arm; Isaly, tackle, knee twisted; McGuire, tackle, knee twisted; Swenson, guard,influenza; Sears, half, broken nose; Mills,half, sprained ankle. Even with the lossof half the eleven in October, if all the restcould have been kept in shape the seasonwould have resulted very differently. Butthe season is over; probably the jinx is dead.Prospects for Next Fall (?)For next fall the prospects are either veryrosy, or not, as you choose. If the menavailable at the beginning of the seasonreturn to college, and those eligible to playnext fall remain, the line-up would be veryformidable. If in addition Ensign Jackson,and Seamen Blocki and Bryan, now at theMunicipal Pier, return to college, Chicagowould be unbeatable. A back field composedof Cole at quarter, Blocki, Bryan and Crisler at halves, and Elton at fullback wouldbe a desperate thing to strive against; addMacDonald and Halliday at end, McGuireand Jackson at tackles, Swenson and Miller at guard, and Reber at center, and inthe words of Spartacus to the Gladiators,let them come on. Quick, Watson, theneedle!Basketball, Track, and BaseballProspects for basketball, track and baseball are equally vague. Nobody knows whowill stay in college, or who will come backfrom service; and there is no way of telling. Vive Reconstruction!THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEUniversity NotesWaters StudioCaptain Charles E. MerriamCaptain Merriami Returns From ItalyProfessor Charles E. Merriam of the department of Political Science, formerly Captain in the Aviation Division, returned October 24 from Italy where he was UnitedStates Commissioner to Italy on PublicInformation, with headquarters at Rome.Professor Merriam worked in co-operationwith the Italian government in stating American war aims and preparedness, and in heading off German propaganda in Italy againstAmerica. He arrived in Rome shortly afterthe Italian defeat at Caporetto and when,after the hard winter with great food and fuelshortage, Italian morale was greatly endangered. The work of the commission headedby Professor Merriam did much to revive thespirit in Italy and contributed toward thesubsequent Italian successes.Captain Merriam met with King Emanuel,Premier Orlando, General Diaz and othermilitary and civilian leaders connected with theItalian government. He was in Italy aboutsix months. It is interesting to note that twoof his stenographers turned out to be "Chicago" girls : Miss McHenry and Miss Johnson. The first American contingent that arrived in Italy was met by Professor Merriam at Genoa, and taken to Camp Lido,The troops were accorded a great reception.In Section 255 of the U. S. AmbulanceService of this unit, Captain Merriam metup with five University of Chicago alumni:Joseph N. Sletten, A. G. Uhlhorn, W. F.Gothberg, Paul Heilman and Fred Heuben-thal. These men displayed the Maroon American flag given to that ambulance unit byUniversity of Chicago people at the time ofits departure.Professor Merriam credits the influence ofAmerica as the deciding factor in the rapiditywith which the war ended. The_ spirit ofAmerica at once revived the spirit of theItalians and with renewed energy the armyset at once to the task of the complete victorywhich was achieved.UNIVERSITY SUBSCRIPTION TOFOURTH LIBERTY LOAN CAMPAIGN IS $337,600The final account of the Liberty Loandrive at the University shows a total subscription of $96,450 on the campaign.

The purpose of the Mission,which has been sent by the British Government, is to inquire into the best means ofprocuring closer co-operation betweenBritish and American educational institutions and so strengthen the bonds ofsympathy and understanding between thenations. The commission is composed of Dr.Arthur Everett Shipley, vice-chancellor ofthe University of Cambridge; Sir HenryMiers, vice-chancellor of the University ofManchester; the Rev. Edward MewburnWalker, fellow and librarian of Queen'sCollege, Oxford University; Sir HenryJones, professor of moral philosophy, University of Glasgow; Dr. John Joly, professor of geology, Trinity College, Dublin;Miss Caroline Spurgeon, professor ofEnglish literature, Bedford College, University of London; and Miss Rose Sidgwick,lecturer on ancient history, University ■ ofBirmingham.In the absence of President Judson,Mrs. Judson gave a- luncheon for the distinguished guests at the President's House.Dean Shailer Mathews, of the DivinitySchool, is on the reception committee ofthe American Council of Education, whoare making all arrangements for the reception of the British commission in this country,In Professor Robertson's Second Edition ofthe Official GuideIn the new edition of the Official Guideto the University of Chicago striking com parisons are drawn between conditions atthe University in 1891 and 1918. In twenty-seven years the University of Chicago hasgrown from a college with a site of someseventeen acres with four prospectivebuildings to a university with a city site ofalmost one hundred acres (the Observatory-site at Lake Geneva is seventy or moreacres) on which are more than forty buildings. The structures of 1892 were valuedat $400,000; those of 1918 at $6,732,266. In1891-92 assets actually in hand amounted toabout $700,000; in 1918 the University assets, including gifts pledged, exceeded $50,-000,000. The annual expenditures of thefirst year were about $350,000; in 1917-18,$2,100,000. When the University opened,the faculty numbered 120; in 1918, about450. During the three quarters of the firstyear 742 students were registered; in 1916-17, during four quarters, 10,448 different. students were in residence. During thetwenty-seven years more than 70,000 students have matriculated. Of alumni therewere in June, 1918, 11,895.The University CollegeAnnouncement has been made at the University of Chicago of the faculty andcouses of University College for the year1918-19. The new year for that college,which is the down-town college of theUniversity, will begin on September 30,and the classes meet at 80 East Randolphstreet, opposite the Public Library. University College is especially intended forpersons who cannot spend their entire timein study in the classrooms and laboratorieson the University quadrangles, and manyteachers, professional men, and businessmen take advantage of this opportunity topursue certain subjects included in a liberal education. The work may be countedtoward an academic degree.Sixty members of the University facultyare announced to give courses in UniversityCollege during the coming academic year,and one hundred and twenty-five courses.will be offered* The largest number ofcourses will be given on Saturday mornings, but many of them are afternoon andevening courses.The Dean of University College is Professor Nathaniel Butler, formerly dean ofthe College of Education, who has alsobeen director of the Extension Division ofthe University and president of Colby College, Maine.Professor H. Gideon Wells, of the department of pathology, who is also director ofthe Otho S. A. Sprague Memorial Institute, left Chicago on October 30 for specialmedical work under the auspices of the RedCross organization in Roumania and Serbia.Dr. Wells has already spent several monthsin Roumania on a similar mission.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe University ChapelBertram G. Goodhue, of New York City,has been appointed architect of the University Chapel, the site of which is the blockbounded by University and Woodlawn avenues and Fifty-eighth and Fifty-ninthstreets. Mr. Goodhue is the well-knownarchitect whose work is observable in someof the most notable buildings of recent construction in the United States, especiallybuildings of an ecclesiastical character.At a recent Board meeting the BusinessManager reported that a quitclaim deed tothe alleys in the block set aside for theUniversity Chapel has been signed by Admiral David Beatty and Mrs. Beatty, whichdeed completes the number of deeds necessary to the use of the entire block forUniversity purposes.The Eugene Field Collection was anotable addition made during the summerby Dr. Gunsaulus to his previous contributions of rare books and manuscripts. Thistime his gift embraces chiefly books, manuscripts, and letters of Eugene Field. Thegift is of particular interest to the University because of the high position which itslibrary already has attained in the field ofAmerican literature, owing chiefly to thegenerous gifts of Mrs. Francis Neilson.The collection just presented by Dr. Gunsaulus numbers 27 volumes (23 titles) and7 letters and manuscripts. Of the latter,the one likely to be of greatest interest tostudents and admirers of the popular poetis the original manuscript of his "Temptation of Friar Gonsol."While known to a limited number ofbook lovers and bibliographers, the averagereader and perhaps even many librariansare not aware of the fact that Friar Gonsolis none other than Dr. Gunsaulus himself.The second friar is Bishop Frank M. Bristol, now of Chattanooga, Tennessee, formerly one of Chicago's most eminentdivines. Both of these reverend gentlemenwere members of the literary set whichfrequented the Old Book Shop and Mc-Clurg's famous Saints and Sinners' Corner.More than 7,000 volumes have been received by the University, to be sent toAmerican soldiers and sailors, and over athousand books ready for use have alreadybeen shipped to various camps. Not onlyhave members of the faculty, students, andother members of the University made largecontributions, but many people residing inthe neighborhood of the University havealso made generous gifts. Many who havenot had books to contribute have volunteered cash contributions. Members of thelibrary staff and members of the Y. M. C.A. have worked evenings for several weeksin preparing the books for shipment. Professor George Herbert Mead, of thedepartment of philosophy, was' elected president of the City Club of Chicago at itsrecent annual meeting.Professor James Henry Breasted, chairman of the department of Oriental languages and literatures and director of theHaskell Oriental Museum, received thehonorary degree of Doctor of Law from theUniversity of California at its semi-centennial celebration. Professor Breasted gavea series of lectures on "Egyptian Civilization and Its Place in History" as a partof the semi-centennial program.At the one hundred and thirtieth annualmeeting of the American Oriental Societyrecently held at Yale University ProfessorBreasted was elected president of the society. He is also president of the westernbranch of the American Oriental Society.Your Business and War Business is thetitle of a war pamphlet issued by the UnionLeague Club of Chicago, the author ofwhich is Associate Professor Harold G.Moulton, '07, of the department of politicaleconomy.The latest issue of the University of Chicago War Papers is just announced by theUniversity Press under the title of "Democracy and Social Progress in England." Theauthor, Dr. Edith Abbott, lecturer in sociology at the University, finds that England isproceeding much more rapidly to embodydemocratic ideals into social legislationthan many of our American states. Englandhas also, she says, provided a much moreadequate scheme of social insurance thanGermany. As a matter of fact social legislation in England is an evidence of thegrowth and expansion of democracy. Muchof this legislation is industrial, protectingthe workers and tending to raise the standard of life even for the poorest wage-earners.Great Britain also took the lead in thepolicy of extending democratic control overindustry to prevent the exploitation of thewage-earning woman as well as of thewage-earning child. Britain led the world,too, in extending democratic control to theregulation of wages and providing minimum-wage legislation in particular. In thematter of social insurance, the entire costof old-age pensions in England is borne bythe state, while in Germany the cost ofthese pensions is largely paid bv the working men themselves. At the outbreak ofthe war England was prepared to mobilizeher industrial army through her well-organized national labor exchanges as sheis prepared safely to demobilize all herarmies through her system of unemployment insurance. While social legislation'accomplished much before the war plansfor a new, better, and more democraticEngland were going steadily forward inspite of the greatest war in historyNOTES DOLeaves of AbsenceThe Board of Trustees has renewed mostof the leaves of absence granted to members of the faculties, the great proportionof which were for service more or less intimately connected with the war.

You, •¥■i my colleagues, and I, may well con- T+ gratulate ourselves that wc are privi- +ir leged to bear some part in this great ■*j£ enterprise." i Assistant Professor Rudolph Altrocchi, departmentof Romance Languages, who is associated with Professor Charles E. Merriam in charge of Italianheadquarters, United States government propagandabureau, at Roem. Professor Merriam returned tothe University several weeks ago. The picture _ ofAltrocchi shows him at one of the early trainingcamps held at Plattsburg, New York.From an article by Snyder, ex-'l8, in TheJapanese Student we clip a bit of singing:"Song is the life of the camp. If it werenot for our singing, how could we live?God be thanked for our singing. We willsing unto the Valley of Death, if ever wego there."There are many songs, many kinds ofsongs, all simple jingles, that hit a man incamp. One of our Highlanders has beensinging on the stage ever since he was alittle lad five years old, and he is full ofsongs. 'So That's the Reason Why WeWear the Kilt,' 'My Bonnie Lies Over theOcean,' 'On the Banks of Loch Lomond' —there are such songs that we Highlanderssing. A number of men sing 'Are You FromDixie?' But there is one song that everyonesings, 'What's the use of worrying, It neverwas worth while; So pack all your troublesin your old kit-bag, and smile, smile, smile.'I remember how we sang it when we wentto the swimming pool and it rained; andhow we sang it when we were marching under the burning sun after being inoculated.I know we shall keep on singing it inFrance, when our hardships are real and ourtrials mighty. 'What's the use of worrying;It never was worth while; So pack all yourtroubles in your old kit-bag, And smile,smile, smile.' "THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAlumni in ServiceMarcus S.
