It isthe strongest, safest and cheapest life insurance ever written.For your protection Uncle Sam has established the greatest life insurance companyin the world — a company as mighty, as generous, and as democratic as the UnitedStates Government itself. Just as UncleSam protected you and your loved onesduring the war, so he stands ready to continue this protection through the days ofreadjustment and peace.The privilege of continuing your Government insurance is a valuable right givento you as part of the compensation for yourheroic and triumphant services. If you permit the insurance to lapse, you lose thatright, and you will never be able to regainit. But if you keep up your present insurance — by the regular payment of premiums— you will be able to change it into a standard Government policy without medical examination. Meantime you can keep up yourpresent insurance at substantially the samelow rate. The Government will write ordinary life insurance, twenty-payment life,endowment maturing at age 62, and otherusual forms of insurance. This will beGovernment insurance — at Governmentrates.The United States Government — throughthe Bureau of War Risk Insurance of theTreasury Department — will safeguard youand your loved ones with the spirit andpurpose of a republic grateful to its gallantdefenders.

TheThe President president is in excellent health, a littlethinner than when he left, but as vigorousas if he had spent the last five and a halfmonths on vacation, instead of in workof the highest international importance,after a journey of the most exhausting sort.Ostensibly and actually an emissary of relief, he was also to all intents and purposes a commissioner of the United Statesto inquire into and discuss diplomaticaffairs of great importance. As such hewas received in England by the PrimeMinister and the members of the cabinet;as such he was welcomed by the Shah ofPersia with an almost more than royaldignity; as such he was acclaimed by thePersian people themselves, and as suchhe was decorated with the highest order in• the power of Persia to confer. He comesback with a belief in the possibility ofidealism applied to international relations.That is a matter of course, to any one whoknows Dr. Judson's point of view. Buthe comes back with a further convictionof the fundamental necessity of this applied idealism. That is important. Forthe president is not a doctinaire. He doesnot formulate and adopt a theory and thentwist facts to fit it. He goes everywherewith his eyes open to discover the factsas they are, and perceptions trained bylong experience to register facts accurately.That such a man should have come to theconclusions which he has announced ininterviews and undoubtedly embodied inhis report is of vast importance in ourpresent state of uncertainty and flux. Of1 local interest, however, the chief matteris his safe return, able to turn himself atonce upon the consideration of our localinstitutional problems. The universitygave him a loyal welcome. Classes weredismissed at a quarter to ten on the morning of his return, and the students andfaculty gathered before his house to recordtheir sentiments vocally. In the evening,he spoke in Mandel, and was greeted at alarge reception later. This, one may note,on the very evening of his return! It takesmore than a few thousand miles of travelunder conditions of- war and reconstruction, more than the weight of a responsibility as heavy as an ambassador's, to abateDr. Judson's natural spirit.When the war-gardens of the universitywere laid out on the vacant lots at 57thstreet and UniversityThe Re-appear- avenue, a short cuting Path dear to the hearts ofhundreds was eliminated. Everybody cheerfully changedhis ways. Nobody dreamed of trespassing. Now the war is over, the places liedesolate and bare, and already the diagonalof the path has reappeared across them.The symbol is too obvious to be missed.Under pressure of the circumstance of war,we gave up our personal comforts andconvenience, even our old habits of thought,in the common cause of co-operation.Now that the pressure is removed, weseem to be going back to the old ways.The old paths reappear. It is natural,probably inevitable, but a little depressingnevertheless to see it coming quite sosoon.17THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe university's only ace, John J. Seerley,Jr., 1919, is back inSeerley, 1919, college. Seerley hasand Others a record of five planesofficially noted as shotdown. The number of planes unofficiallycredited to him he declines to commenton. Seerley was trained in Italy, in 1917,after enlistment as soon as the war brokeout. He was reported at the time to bethe ablest flyer in the American trainingcamp, and he took and still holds the campaltitude record. Sent to France, he wasset to work as a teacher of stunt-flying.Not till mid-summer of 1918 was he released for pursuit work. From that timeuntil armistice day, he was steadily in action; his last official flight was from eightto ten a. m. on November 11. He reachedAmerica and was discharged January 17.In all his year and a half of service, henever had an accident and was neverwounded. The only comment on his fighting experience which has been extractedfrom him so far is', "The German flyerswere good sports. I noticed no differencebetween their tactics and ours."Percy W. Graham, 1920, better known as"Red," is also back, though not yet incollege. He will probably enter for thesecond term of the current quarter.Graham, like Seerley, declines altogether todiscuss his exploits. He is officially creditedwith two planes. Other Chicago aviatorsnow in this country after pursuit-flying inFrance, are Frank Whiting '16, GeorgeDorsey '17, Alfred Strong '17, and GaleWillard '17. Those who will never returninclude Jewell Whyte '18, Clarence Brodie'18, and Richard Perry Matthews '17, thetwo latter killed in action.As most of the alumni will recollect, oneday a week every undergraduate studentin the university is sup-Required posed to attend chapelChapel exercises; junior college men on Monday,junior college women on Tuesday, seniorcollege students on Wednesday, and commerce and administration and College ofEducation students on Thursday. Four un-excused absences from chapel result in theloss of one-half grade point. The hour,under the new schedule, is from eleven-twenty to eleven-fifty, the most convenientfor most students of the day. On thewhole, chapel attendance is fairly regular.Yet excuses are numerous, and accordingto the maroon their is a considerable tendency to dishonesty in handing in the slipswhich record attendance. The troubleseems to be that we are uncertain just what chapel is for. As conducted at present, it is largely a relipious exercise.Prayer is offered, a hymn is sung, there isa responsive reading of selections from theBible, the university chaplain gives a shorttalk, and the students are dismissed witha benediction. Practically, it is a churchservice. Yet one great argument givenadministratively for its continuance is thatfor the announcement of matters of generalimportance to students, such as the dateof make-up examinations, a regular assembly is desirable, and chapel is this assembly. A further argument is that forthe unification and development of group-spirit, a group must get together frequently,and chapel gives the opportunity. It wouldalmost seem, however, as if these two sortsof argument for chapel are conflicting. Ifchapel is a religious service, should it berequired? If it is not a religious service,should its program be so arranged as practically to exclude discussion of purely secular matters? The undergraduate wishes toknow definitely what he is meant to go tochapel for; and as long as he does notknow, he rather questions the real necessityof his being required to go at all.An undergraduate howl continues to gou.j> over the new schedule. The greatcomplaint is that noThe Daily definite hour is setSchedule aside for lunch. Thewomen's halls and thefraternity houses are both trying to meetconditions by having two lunch-hours, attwelve and at one; and of course the Commons keeps open over the whole middayperiod. But the fraternities find this system almost impossibly expensive, as wellas definitely in the wav of companionship.No longer may the carefree lads assembletogether, and sing about the groaning boardand glowing hearth. The tenor goes atone, just as the bass enters the chapterhouse; and the poor accompanist, takingAnthropology 80 at eleven-fifty and English41 at twelve-fifty-five, must either snatcha bite ere noon or fight with a cold boneat two. A still more serious difficulty,from the administration point of view, iswith laboratory hours. Physics, for instance, is run with laboratory periods oftwo hours each. Only one such period ispossible in the morning, for chapel conflicts with a second. A second period fromtwelve to two has not seemed advisable.The result is great trouble in arranging aschedule. Doubtless, improvements willcome; but just now many even aside fromhabitual pessimists are unhappy.UNIVERSITY OE CHICAGO MAGAZINE 119New Offices — New OpportunitiesFor over twelve years, since the publication of the first issue of the University ofChicago Magazine, Alumni interests atthe University have been steadily expanding. The Magazine resulted in placingalumni organizations on a more definite andfirmer basis; Alumni clubs have been fostered as opportunity afforded; reunionshave been conducted more and more suc- ' students that is so clearly manifested atthe June reunions.The year 1918-1919 finds the Alumni Officemaking a step in advance that is notable.Heretofore the office has been confined toa single room, the files have been limited toa simple card system, and, except duringthe month before Reunion, there has beenbut one clerical assistant. The rapidNEW ALUMNI OFFICES, COBB 3 D.Upper left-hand: Secretary's office. Upper right-hand: Stenographers' room. Lowerleft-hand: Corner of File-room, showing part of new files.

Without theMagazine and without the central Alumnioffice, there could never have been built upso quickly that loyal and enthusiastic relation that exists between the University andthe many hundreds of its graduates and ex- growth in the number of graduates, and former students, however, the expanding ofAlumni work and service, and the eagernessof the University to have as complete records as possible, greatly necessitated achange, if a satisfactory foundation were tobe laid for obtaining and keeping up Alumnirecords for the Directory, the Magazine,THE UNIVERSITY OFand other purposes. The University metthe situation quickly and generously, providing the suite of offices, herein shown,in Cobb 4 D. In addition the Universitygave funds for setting up a biographical file,the purpose of which is to keep all possibleinformation as to the activities and whereabouts of all graduates and former students.Mr. Roy Nelson, '01, has accepted the newoffice of Alumni Historian, and -has takencharge of this phase of the work. He is establishing a system to collect informationconcerning Alumni — such as letters, cards,photographs, newspaper-clippings, programs, and similar material. Each Alumnusand former student will have a biographicalfolder in the file, in which all this materialwill be kept. Such records, arranged andclassified, will prove of great value to theUniversity, to the Magazine, and to allAlumni organizations.This expansion is to some extent the result of a visit of Secretary Moulds to ameeting of the Association of Alumni Secretaries held at Yale University, in May,1918, where Mr. Moulds was able to investigate carefully the systems in operation atYale, Columbia, Harvard, and other largeUniversities. And yet, even with the newrooms, the new equipment, and additionalclerical forces, the success of this work willdepend ultimately upon the continued general interest maintained by Alumni and upontheir willing and ready co-operation. If allAlumni respond promptly to requests forinformation — as, for example, in the seriesof return postals now being sent about —and at other times keep the Alumni officeinformed of changes of address, of position,and of similar events, the office will be ableto publish an accurate and complete Directory at regular intervals, as increase the interest and importance andgeneral service of the Magazine, to assistall Alumni organizations, and to prove ofgreater service to the University. At aCouncil meeting held July 2, 1918, — the firstmeeting in the new Alumni offices — President Judson expressed his desire that ascomplete records as possible be obtained.He commented with sincere pleasure uponthe fact that Alumni of the University hadalready made their mark in the world; heexpressed the pride of the University in theachievements of its alumni and stated that CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe University is always eager to followthem through life.The Council deeply appreciates the interested attitude of President Judson and ofthe University authorities, as thus expressed and proved, and it feels that allalumni should do everything possible tohelp carry on the work to a marked success.To all of our subscribers this general announcement will bring a realization, wehope, that their Alma Mater is intenselyinterested in them, and that actual and appreciated progress is being made by theAlumni Council which they are supporting.Let us all take this opportunity, then, tostrengthen our interest in the Magazine,which is the one "cementing" agent, andin our alumni organizations, and do what wecan to assist and share in the progress.Prompt renewals, getting "Chicago" friendsto join us, sending in news, giving adviceand suggestions (always welcomed) — theseare the tangible helps that are bound toresult in giving us not only one of thestrongest and most enthusiastic of AlumniAssociations, but also one of the best alumnimagazines ever published. Let us "get together," and we can soon have the kind ofAssociation worthy of our Alma Mater —already universally recognized as one of theworld's greatest educational institutions.Alumni AffairsThe Alumni Council MeetingThe second quarterly meeting of theAlumni Council was held in the Alumni office on Thursday, January 23, at 8 p. m.There were present: Frank McNair, chairman; Alice Greenacre, Mary McDonald,Ruth Prosser, Mrs. Martha Landers Thompson, Scott Brown, Earl Hostetter, EmeryJackson, William H.

Alumni ClubMeets President Judson in ParisSurrounded by khaki, lots of majors,three privates and even a second lieutenant or two, President Judson spoketo the first A. E. F. gathering ofChicago Alumni in Paris on January4. He was just back from some goodhard soldiering of his own in Persia,and his address, filled with a messageof the new fraternity of nations, wasone of the best that his hearers remember."We must unmake old modes ofthinking," announced the President,and then, with Lincoln's assurancethat God must have loved the common people because he made so manyof them, he went on telling whatAmerica's duty was, toward thesmaller nations which the war has putin her care, and to her own childrenwhose sacrifices deserve the full rightand justice that their service hasearned.Major Lawrence Whiting was theinstigator of the luncheon and he presided so wisely that beside the President's remarks there were no speechesat all, but much good wine of fellowship and many a hearty handshake.When Lieutenant J. G. Pegue^, '10,came in he received the welcome hedeserved, and his word of the Chicagoairmen who flew for America and fellin France made those of us whosethankless task it has been to wait behind the lines, regret the poverty ofour offering.For all the gold leaves and silverbars it was as goodly a gathering asthe exiles can remember, and, withthe President's message full of thenew freedom and service that hisperilous trip in broken Persia doubtless inspired, it was a little betterthan just a plain Alumni meeting.A temporary organization of theA.

The returnof postcards, now being sent out, was verysatisfactory. A considerable number ofphotographs were also being received. Plansfor the June reunion were discussed. Thechair was requested to appoint a chairmanfor the reunion, the Council to send insuggestions .before February 1. It was decided that the reunion this year should bemade as large an event as possible, in honorof the men and women returned from warservice. Ways were also discussed for developing a subscription campaign. This matter was referred to the publications committee, to work out a definite plan. Afterconsideration of some magazine matters,the meeting adjourned at 9:45.Council Executive Committee MeetingThe regular monthly meeting of theAlumni Council Executive Committee washeld in the Alumni office, Thursday, January 23. There were present Frank McNair,chairman; Scott Brown, Emery Jackson,Walker McLaury, Harold Swift, John F.Moulds, and A. G.

Mr. Moulds reportedon the advertising arrangement that wasbeing completed with the leading alumnimagazines in the country to endeavor toobtain some national advertising.The general belief was that with conditions rapidly returning to normal, the workof the various committees should again betaken up at every opportunity and that allalumni matters should be given the fullestattention possible.Chicago Alumnae Club Entertains JackiesThe Chicago Alumnae Club entertainedfifty jackies Sunday, January 26, at IdaNoyes Hall, from 3- till 8 o'clock.

His itinerary took him by way of England, Italy, Egypt, India, and Mesopotamia to Teheran, the capital of Persia, and home again by Baku on the Caspian Sea,Batum on the Black Sea, Constantinople, and Paris. He was enthusiastically welcomedhome by a large gathering of students at the President's House on the morning of hisarrival and by a notable general gathering at Mandel Hall in the evening. His attendanceat a meeting of soldier-alumni given in his honor in Paris is noted in this issue on page 121.The alumni are glad that President Judson, after an arduous task and a severe journey, is safely and vigorously "back at his desk."UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 123The Letter BoxThe University Ambulance Unit in Italyand the University FlagVilla Raggio, near Genoa, Italy,December 23, 1918.My dear Mr. Robertson:Upon my return to Genoa yesterdaymorning, I found your very welcome replyto my letter awaiting me. "As cold waterto a thirsty soul is good news from Home."You cannot imagine my great happinesswhen I read of the splendid news from mydear Alma Mater. It is needless for me tosay that the most interesting part of yourletter was the telling of the activity of theS. A. T. C. How proud we fellows overhere are to know that our Universities havebeen turned over to the Cause! It is suchactivities which make us proud to be inactive service overseas.I have just returned from my furloughafter six months at the Italian front. Ispent my time visiting the six leading citiesof Italy and I summarize my tour as beingequivalent to a year at school. Rome isperfectly wonderful — I found myself socompletely enmeshed in the romantic atmosphere of the Eternal City that sevendays had elapsed before I could "tear myself away." Ancient Rome and ModernRome are each worthy of years of study,so I find that my stay there seems morelike a dream.The very first thing I did upon my arrivalin Rome was to look up the American University Union. Their club rooms are in theRoyal Hotel and the manager, Mr. KennethMcKenzie, the head of the department ofRomance Languages at the University ofIllinois,_ has surely anticipated the wantsand desires of American university men onleave. I am not hesitant about declaringthis club the most American institution inall Italy. Mrs. McKenzie is a most charming woman and to talk with her was exactlylike a heart to heart talk with Mother.Plenty of recent American newspapers andmagazines, various university journals,plenty of games, a well selected library,and a place where American drinks aremixed by a former American bar-tender,and the excellent homelike comfort andatmosphere make the club an oasis in thelife of a soldier in Italy. I was especiallyanxious to make inquiries regarding the proposed opportunities for men of the American E. F. to attend some European university during the period of demobilization.Mr. McKenzie outlined the plans proposedand I am today applying for an extendedleave of absence in order that I may attendthe University of Oxford. I have my doubtsas to my success in obtaining this request,but I shall hope for the best. The reasons for my doubts will be explained when I return.Even though I should succeed in beingsent to England for study, I should not remain there very long. I am also determinedthat I wish my Ph.D. to come from the bestschool on earth — The University of Chicago. Also please explain to me whetheror not I can hope for a fellowship upon myreturn. If this is impossible, I shall be verythankful for a scholarship. I have not theslightest idea as to when the ambulancetroops in Italy will be sent back to theStates. Not for several months, accordingto present indications.It is impossible for me to tell you thefinal history of the splendid equipment furnished us by the university. The laboratoryremained in Camp Crane as did the ambulances. We felt sorry to leave the "Floss-moor" and the "Helen Johnson" ambulancesbehind. We felt that they were entitled tooverseas service just as much as we were.I appreciate the inquiries made by the donors of these ambulances and regret thattheir questions cannot be answered. Thebeautiful silk flag given to old AmbulanceCo. No. 3 saw service on the Italian front.The commanding officer of Section 555 —the remnants of the U. of C. unit — is Captain Francis P. Todd, of Philadelphia.While I was in Rome I met several of theboys of this section and they informed methat "the flag was still there." I hope thatthe section will not present the flag toCapt. Todd when mustered out. It is mysincere wish that this flag will be returnedto the halls of the university from whichit came after its service on the Italian front.It may interest you to know that we ambulance men were the first American troopsin Italy. When we landed in Genoa onJune 27, 1918, we paraded through the mainstreets of the city and were given the kindof reception you read about in thepapers. At the head of the procession wasOld Glory and the flag of the Universityof Chicago Section is the first flag to headthe procession of American troops in Italy.Also, on July the Fourth we paraded inGenoa and this same banner headed theparade.Of course we are extremely happy in thethought that the victory is ours. Soon wewill be sent back to the States and I assureyou that everyone of us rejoices at thethought of coming home.As a loyal alumnus of the University ofChicago, it is my most sincere wish thatthe coming year will be the greatest yearso far in the glorious history of my AlmaMater. I may add that it is my New Year'swish to be back with you in 1919.

There weren'tenough state rooms and a lot of us sat upall- night. I shared a deck bench with anEnglish girl who was violently sick in themiddle of the night and a very nice Baptistminister from Boston. He wasn't a member of our party, having been in Englandfor a while, but was listed with us forFrance. You can see in what fine condition I am when I say I was unharmed bythe trip.Right after lunch on Sunday some of uswent over and took the familiar tram pastthe Invalides and over to the Gare MontParnesse. The others decided to go back,but I couldn't from there, and so I strolledup to our old pension on Notre Dame desChamps, which is now used by the nurses ofan American hospital not far off, and theninto the Garden of the Luxemburg. It wasa beautiful afternoon and everyone was out.The flowers were still fine, and with halfclosed eyes I could imagine myself backtwelve, sixteen years — but not with eyeswide open. There were soldiers everywhere.Frenchmen strolling with their families, orin little groups, of nearly-well wounded,those weren't a part of the old picture, andmore striking yet were the large numbersof our boys. They seemed to be everywhere. They played ball in the section thatused to be reserved for Tombola, sometimesjust with each other, sometimes with French children or some boy in khaki would havehalf a dozen French children around himor inspecting his uniform. They would allsmile and say a few words, but communication, was mostly by gestures. SometimesI would catch a boy's eye as I went by andhe would grin cheerfully, if a little sheepishly, at me.Well, Monday morning we all went downto Red Cross Headquarters to register andthen a group of us were shepherded downto the Prefecture of Police to go throughthat preliminary part of getting the paperswhich are necessary before we can go outinto France. I had just asked a guard somequestion, when he pushed me toward a window and said, "Listen 1" and I did and heard,first a few bells and then the full chimes ofNotre Dame, and my guard added to makesure that I understood, "They ring onlyfor Victory." And, by the way, the Frenchsay peace sometimes, but more often Victory. I like that, for such a peace certainlyis Victory.Meanwhile they were busy everywhere.By noon, when we got back to the rue deRivoli, it had broken out with flags. Jeanned'Arc, in front of the Hotel Regina (B. C.Hdqrs.), had American, French and Belgianflags over her. The streets were alreadycrowded with the happiest people you eversaw. The Place de la Concorde wasn't sofull as it became later and I drifted over tolook at the .statues of Strasburg and Lille,covered with flags, and found my eyes fullof tears. There were plenty of other peoplewho took the good news that way.At four I started down the avenue with agirl and lost her in a twinkling. There wereextemporary processions everywhere; allthat was needed was a few soldiers — Frenchor American usually, but once or twice I sawAustralians or Canadians as a nucleus, thensome flags, ver3' occasionally a trumpet,and the thing would grow like a snow ball.These continued Tuesday afternoon andnight and to some extent Wednesday evening, and everybody says look for fresh doings on Sunday. Then there were thecamions (motor trucks) full of laughing,cheering people, and always with flags. Ican't imagine where all of the flags camefrom. It seems as if Paris must have beenmaking nothing else for weeks.LETTER BOX 125Can you imagine me touring the city ina camion? I did, first in the back with ayelling mob of A. R. C. workers, and thena second trip in the driver's seat with twoother girls, a first lieutenant driving and asecond lieutenant giving almost his wholeattention to tooting the horn. It was entirely necessary as the crowd was all overthe street, but perfectly good natured andready to yell Vive Les Etas Unis at thesame moment that they were trying to getout o fthe way of the khaki colored 'massrolling toward them. The girls I was withgot tired and so I had to go home at 9:30,but some of the others stayed until 12:30and the men until 2. We had a good dealof fun over the French girls kissing themen.I wish most I could tell you properlythe feeling I have had and I have heardother Americans express as we see ourflag in the group of the Allies. The mostprofound gratitude and rejoicing that it isthere and a sense of the awful shame itwould have been if it had not been there.And if it hadn't been, would there have beena peace on such terms? Who knows? Perhaps the Parisian opinion is shown by thefact that except the tri-colof, no flag is sooften shown as ours, on buildings, headingprocessions and in button-holes everywhere.Whatever explanation is given to officialdisplays, the voluntary act of all of thesecitizens can only mean that they think ourhelp has been great.I don't know how a soldier feels whenhe first wears his Croix de Guerre, but Idon't believe that he can be any prouderthan I am to wear the little bronze U. S.on my coat now-a-days. I guess I can havemore pride for what others have done thananyone can allow himself to have personally.Shirley Farr ('04).Excerpts From a Letter by Charles Andes,Ex-'21, a Corporal Serving in France Withthe Marine Corps — He Is in Company Hof the 11th Regiment, Now Stationed atGievres.To give you a summary of what has happened to me since I wrote you last won'ttake much space; so here it is: We sailedfrom New York harbor on October 16, on the Von Steuben, which, before it was interned by the United States, was the KaiserWilhelm. We were accompanied by theAgamemnon, formerly the Kaiser WilhelmII. The Von Steuben is well armed, so wehad no convoy for seven days. Our quarterswere roomy as compared with those of mosttroops. The voyage was rather rough, andmost of the fellows fed the fishes, but Imanaged to escape that unpleasant sensation. The only part of the trip which Ireally disliked was the "abandon ship" drillwhich we had several times a day.On the 26th of October we landed inBrest. At Brest we were placed in a "rest"camp. Now, don't be misled by the termrest. In other words, we didn't. Our bedswere mud puddles, and as for rest therewasn't any. We did police work from 4o'clock in the morning until taps. We shovedoff from Brest the last of October. Ourcars were marked "40 hommes ou 8 che-veaux." Eight horses might have been comfortable, but forty men were rather crowded.We passed through the cities of Rennes,Laval, Le Mans and Tours. We landed atthis camp, near the city of Gievres. Thisvillage is about eighty or ninety miles southof Paris. Our quarters are fairly good here."Rastus" Greer is located about a mile anda half from my company. He was downto see me today and tells me that DukeJones is now a dean.We are doing guard duty here. We workin twenty-four-hour reliefs, twenty-four onand twenty-four off duty. It is now 6 o'clockin the evening and I have just come on dutyat 4 o'clock this afternoon, so I am at present in the guardhouse. During our twenty-four hours of duty we are on watch twohours and off watch four hours; so wedon't get much rest.We are all set to go home, now that thebig show is over, but, of course, I don'tknow how long it will be before we getback to the States. Excuse me if I smilewhen you tell me that in the S. A. T. have to eat all your food from one plateand then have to carry the dirty dishes tothe kitchen. We have to wash our mess gear■ — often in dirty cold water. And while wewere at Brest we did not get to wash ourmess gear more than once.I saw a football game today! It was be-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEtween a team of the Marines and a SignalCorps team. We won, 7-0. It was a muchbetter game than I would probably see inthe States. We have some team. It is composed of college men. One man was pickedon an all-American last year.Demange aux Eaux, France,23 December, 1918.Secretary, Alumni Council,University of Chicago,Chicago, 111., U. S. A.Dear Sir;Those letters we used to get from home,in the good old days of Polycon and English 1, with a check from Dad never couldbe any more welcome than the Universityof Chicago Magazine, which the mail orderly dropped on my table for me the othermorning. It was just like getting moneyfrom home used to be — the big event in thedaily routine. And I have read it twicefrom cover to cover, and enjoyed everyword of it. Before I rave any furtherthough, will you please go to the troubleof changing the address to the one at theclose of this letter.The pictures of the S. A. T. C. lookednatural, that is, I mean the backgrounds,and I believe every Chicago man is interested in this phase of the work. Is it to becontinued now that the war is over? ThatRoll of Honor is enough to make anyoneproud that he can claim old Chicago, isn'tit? Shull and Goettler and the others whomade the supreme sacrifice will always livein the memory of Chicago alumni, and theirgold stars will shine as a perpetual memorial in our hearts, I'm sure.It seems like old times when the Starsand Stripes comes around every Friday andyou see Baldridge's work. He is certainlydoing some splendid pictures, and everyoneremarks on them. It's great to be able tosay that you know him, that he came fromyour old Alma Mater. The men all seemto like the stuff he is doing, and once ina while when someone sends us a Leslie's,Baldridge's page is the first one I turn to.Part of our division, the Eighty-Eighth,has been in action, but as for myself, mypart in the big circus has been a very inconspicuous one. We are in the hardestpart of our work now — waiting and wondering whether we are billed for home, or to help occupy German territory. It seemsstrange to think of spending Christmas sofar from home, and yet, thousands havedone it, and done it cheerfully. We are preparing to give the kids of this village alittle treat Christmas eve, and the SalvationArmy hut is going to be gay in its dressof Christmas greens. Our big dinner willcome Christmas day, and we are gettingthose precious nine by four by threes fromhome to help make the day a real one.This is quite an interesting section of thecountry, and is very well occupied by soldiers. Trucks are continually passingthrough here, and we have to dodge theportable shower baths of mud, eternally, itseems, when you have to clean shoes andwrapped puttees. Domremy, the birthplaceof Joan of Arc, is not so far from here, andthere are memorials of her everywhere. Wehave been told that this village was oncethe headquarters of Captain Roosevelt.Thank you for attending to the change ofaddress, and wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year, and hoping I can be atthe June reunion, I amYours very truly,Frederic C. Smith, Sgt.,Hq. Det. 313 A. T., A. E. F.With the TanksCo. B., 301st Heavy Battalion,American Tank Corps,B. E. F., France,Oct. 17, 1918.Alumni Council: The other day I receiveda copy of the U. of C. Magazine and readwith pleasure of campus events and thedoings of U. of C. men and women "overhere" and "over there."Things are pretty quiet around here justnow. I was formerly with the U. of C.Ambulance Company at Allentown until itsbreak-up last February, and with many others transferred to the Tank Corps, thenknown as the 65th Engineers. There wereseveral U. of C. men with me, but I leftthem behind when I transferred into a company that was scheduled for overseas serviceat an early date.After the long, fruitless wait in the ambulance company, it certainly was a pleasantsurprise to be shipped off across the Atlanticwithin ten days after my arrival at CampLETTER BOX 127Meade. We were in England for five monthsmaking the acquaintance of our "buses," aswe dub the tanks, and then came to France.It wasn't long before we saw active service,and since we have been in France I havebeen over the top in a tank twice.As you see by the address, we are brigaded with the British temporarily, althoughwe have supported American attacks. So farI haven't run across any U. of C. men; thenearest thing to it is one of our lieutenants,who was on the Purdue football squad andwas up to Stagg Field several times. Still,I haven't given up hope.William D. Dalgethy, '17.Sergeant, Co. B., 301st Heavy Battalion,Tank Corps, U. S. A.A Word From the PhilippinesDear Mr. Robertson:Perhaps you will be surprised to hearfrom me, but I have recently been appointeddean of the College of Liberal Arts here,and I am forced to keep in touch with myold alma mater in order to get new ideas.I have just received the second edition ofthe "History of the University of Chicago,"by Dr. Goodspeed. That book is the bestmeans of enhancing alumni interest in Chicago. Really, I never fully appreciated thespirit which made the University of Chicagowhat it is till I read Dr. Goodspeed's work.It has been some time since I left Chicago,but it is my personal experience that thelonger one stays away from his alma materand the more responsibilities he assumes inlife, the more his thoughts turn back' to theold college, the source of noble inspiration.And it is gratifying to note that Chicagohas successfully endeavored to keep aliveher alumni's loyalty by the publication ofbooks like that of Dr. Goodspeed.We have at present a Chicago Club inthis city, and I am secretary-treasurer of it.Our president is Dr. L. E. Gurney, Ph. D.,from Chicago, and head of the departmentof mathematics. We also have Dr. James R.Wright, another Chicago Ph. D., and headof our department of physics. The clubmeets for luncheon once in a while to talkover Chicago matters. The Chicago Magazine has been instrumental in acquainting uswith events there.Our university is also sending some of her instructors to the United States for advanced work. Chicago and Columbia getmost of them.Last summer, on my way to Japan to attend the Far Eastern Olympic Games heldat Tokyo, I passed through Shanghai, andthere had a good time with Nathaniel Pfef-fer, Chicago, '11, and Maurice Price, anotherChicago man. Pfeffer is in newspaper workthere, and Price is in the book business.You should have been here when the Chicago baseball team came. I had again thepleasure of seeing Prof. Wright and "Pat"Page. I hope some day you will travelacross the Pacific and see the beautifulislands in this part of the world.With best wishes for your continued success, I remain, Yours very sincerely,Conrado Benitez, '11.University of the Philippines,Manila, P. I.From a Letter by Lewis Fishers, Ex-'20,Who Is With Base Hospital No. 13,Now Located in LimogesI ha've been engaged in the simplest sortof service — orderly in one of the wards,mostly night orderly — and have stuck closeto home and have taken most of my warexperiences from the mouths of others, although I have seen a nice bit of Francelately on a leave which took me to theEmerald coast of Brittany via Paris. It iscertainly interesting to hear the blesses talkand they are at it until the interest lags,fighting over and over the battles alreadylike grandfathers telling civil war tales. Ifeel as though I had a thorough knowledgeof the famous day at Chateau Thierry especially, because that is the engagement thatsent us more wounded than any other, andhas been fought the oftenest in our wards.And then they fight about their divisions:whether the 26th did more than the 2nd, etc.You'd think they knew every man in theirdivisions and that each had its own handshake and pin. And the way they talk intheir sleep is often food for thought, to saythe least, for many of them have terribledreams, especially those who suffer much,and they state some pretty clear factsthereby.But while I was on leave all the hardwork was gone for ten wonderful days. ITHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEtraveled most of the way like a civilian andhad a private room in a fine hotel — surf, etc.,under my window, with good meals and awonderful bed and living like the old days,going anywhere anytime without askinganybody. But with one difference, that itdidn't cost a cent, a gift of my Uncle. That'sthe time when you really feel as though thegovernment was for you instead of againstyou, and the French people think how richa nation, to send its common soldiers forvacations at their best watering places. Ofcourse, the idea is a new one, for the Frenchand British can go home on leave, but it iscertainly true that we are a rich nation.Paris is certainly a wonderful city. Ithasn't any sixty-story buildings to tell about,but it's just like one big art museum withbeauty in landscape gardening, statuary andarchitecture on all sides. Artificiality andgilt, of course, but an unlimited supply ofart and beauty. And to think we put up awonderful structure like the old Field museum only to last a few years instead ot abeauty for centuries. We Americans arewaking up to the value of beauty, however,and in many things have more of it thanthe French, I believe, notably in ordinaryjewelry.From the Secretary of the New ParisAlumni ClubDear Editor:It's over, over here and everybody overhere wants to be over there as far as I canobserve. Meanwhile, after finishing theofficers' training school at Samur, I havebeen transferred to Stars & Stripes withoutbeing reduced. (I am still a buck despitethe terrible battle of Samur, which yieldedme no glory beyond a strange black stripeon my sleeve and the scars of many combatswith cosines, firing angles, ballistic coefficicnts, French saddles, gold-fish bones andthe like). As we worked and drilled froir5:40 A. M. until 10:10 P. M. there wasn'tmuch time to write.The war from my point of view and theKaiser's was more or less of a fizzle becauseue never met. This was due to circumstances over which we had no control.However, our points of view differ in thatI became very much attached to the 155howitzer surrounded by a Yankee crew,which he did not. There was never a sickerbunch of men than our class at the schoolwhich finished just as the armistice was signed. For those that had been in thethick of it, it wasn't a disappointment perhaps, but the rest of us who had had onlya little taste were sorely grieved that theydidn't have more to do. Rudy Matthews,Lawrence Whiting, Le Roy Baldridge,George Kuh, I see in Paris; Dick Myersand Bill Merrill are classifying the army inGermany. Roy has won great fame as acartoonist of course and is healthy as ever.We expect to be here to put the paper tobed the night the last reader of the A. E. F.sails. Otherwise Paris is simply our stationand we realize that the men in the campswaiting, have a harder time than we in bedsdo. The news is all in the dispatches andnot at all here.H. R. Baukhage, '11.(Editor's Note:The magazine has for some time published many letters from our alumni andalumnae in war service, giving us intimateand personal points of view that couldscarcely be otherwise obtained. Such letters will be published throughout the year,although the Letter Box has been greatlyenlarged thereby. We feel, however, thatnow is the time to gather in, not only forpassing enjoyment, but for most valuableand permanent magazine and Universityrecords these first-hand records of war experiences, emotions and impressions. Webelieve — as, indeed, many letters attest —that our subscribers enjoy these intenselyinteresting letters as much as we do, andwe are always glad and proud to pass onto others their spirit of patriotism and loyalty to our nation, as well as loyalty to our\lma Mater. We wish to add that it isthese men and women you will meet wheiiyou attend the Reunion next June; and, inaddition to the exceptional interest theirpresence will lend to the occasion, this particular reunion will be held in their honor.Many of them, whose present situationenables them to plan for it now, have already announced their eagerness to attendand their determination to do so. There isbut one thing for us — for you and for me —to do: prepare now to be at that June reunion, and help to make it, as it should be,the most memorable reunion in the historyof "Chicago.")UNIVERSITY OF CFIICAGO MAGAZINE 129News of the QuadranglesLast month's predictions were correct:the campus is rapidly getting back to prewar conditions, and at a lively pace, too.Undergraduate events are taking placethick and fast, and February will be thebusiest month of the winter quarter, withthe Settlement dance in the Hutchinsongroup on February 14 and the Washington Promenade exactly one week later atthe South Shore Country Club.The Undergraduate CouncilThe Undergraduate Council is back onthe job. Charles Greene, '19, is president,and the other members are: Marion Llewellyn, '19; George Martin, '19; Van MeterAmes, '19; Eleanor Atkins, '20; Buel Hutchinson, '20; Frank Long, '20; John Prosser, ''21, and Chalmer McWilliams, '21. As soonas the winter quarter had commenced theCouncil met, and before long had startedreconstruction proceedings.Class elections will be -held February 6.An official list of candidates has not beenpublished, but I do know that David Annanis the only man running for senior president, and Bernard Nath the only man outfor the treasurer's job in the same class.Competition is keener in the three lowerclasses. Within a month Council electionswill take place. No definite date has beenset.The Settlement DanceThe Settlement dance is the most important event nearest time of publication ofthis issue. David Annan was elected general chairman of this annual charity affair(postponed from last quarter on account ofthe unsettled condition of the campus)with Dorothy Lardner, '19, and JamesNicely, '20, as assistants. It was decidedto hold the affair in Hutchinson group —Mandel, the Reynolds Club and the Commons — in order to provide more space.The three floors of the club will be openfor dancing and booths will be erected inthe corridor outside of Mandel. In the assembly hall continuous vaudeville will begiven, while food of all kinds will be on salein Hutchinson. Committees are hard atwork at the present time, because February14 is not far away. A man sized alumni andalumnae representation is hoped for; sohere is my chance to say "Come!" The PromArline Falkenau and George Martin willlead the right wing of the Prom and GladysGordon and William Henry will managethe left wing. There was some discussionas to the place for holding the event of thesocial season, but finally the South ShoreCountry Club was chosen. It will be theregular, pre-war Prom, the leaders say —flowers, taxis, midnight supper and all that..Attendance has been limited to two hundred couples.Dramatic Club and BlackfriarsFinal winter tryouts for the DramaticClub on January 23 admitted the followingto associate membership: Vera Edelstadt,'22; Mignon Schreiber, '22; John Lanyon,'22; Helen Saunders, '22; Gerald Westby,'20; Louise Amsden, '22; John Joseph, '20;Leona Bachrach, '20; Edgar Johnson, '22,and Robert Kewley, '22. It is rumored the.winter plays will be given this month, butnothing definite has been announced.Blackfriars has decided to put on theshow this year at the usual time. ShermanCooper, last year's Abbot, started the ballrolling. As it was too late to open competition for a book, the aid of alumni was solicited, with the result that Harold Wright,'14, and Ned Miller, '14, are working on theproduction. However, sketches and ideasof any sort are requested, the Superiorssay. Suggestions for lyrics will be readysoon, and within three weeks the lyricswill be given out to music writers. Anyone interested in the production has beenrequested to get in touch with the Ordervia the Faculty Exchange. The staff hasnot yet been appointed, but until it is,James Nicely will act as campus representative.President JudsonFamous visitors to the campus thismonth have been few. Madama Breshkov-skaya, "the grandmother of the Russianrevolution," spoke January 2.5 before twocapacity audiences in Ida Noyes Hall. Thecampus eagerly anticipated the arrival ofan exceedingly famous visitor— PresidentHarry Pratt Judson, who arrived onWednesday, February 5th, after havingbeen absent from this country six monthson his relief expedition in Persia.John E. Joseph, '20.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAthleticsWILLIAM GORGASWilliam, otherwise "Bill," Gorgas, who has returnedfrom the naval unit at Cleveland and is now figuringmost prominently in basketball. "Bill" was captainof the 191S baseball team and played on team of thenaval unit. He is also a member of the football team.BasketballThere is nothing to chronicle in athleticssave the continued success of the basketballteam. It played four games in January.three at home and one at Madison, andwon them all. The games played by Chicago have been:Chicago 21, Purdue 17.Chicago 31, Iowa 19.Chicago 21, Michigan 13.Chicago 24, Wisconsin 19.All except the first game were comparatively easy victories, and Chicago hasbeen strengthened since the first game wasplayed by the accession of Williams atforward.The Purdue game was marked in the firsthalf by remarkable lack of team-work onboth sides. The playing was not particularly rough but a kind of general scramblefor the ball and a lack of instinct what to do with it. In the second half, Chicagoimproved, and Purdue did not;_ hence thevictory. The game with Michigan was arough-and-tumble. The referee had verylittle idea of his business, oassing over repeated and obvious fouls on both sides,more by Chicago than by Michigan, and"making up" by calling fouls at other timeswhere none existed. Once Captain Hinkletackled about the waist, a man to whomthe ball was just being thrown; on anotheroccasion Korpus of Michigan with greatdeliberation put his knee into Birkhoff'sface; both acts went entirely unnoticed.Michigan found it very difficult to get anywhere near the basket, while the Chicagomen were rather lucky. The Iowa gamewas unexpectedly easy. At Wisconsin,Chicago led 13-9 at the end of the first half,and soon put the game on ice in the second.•Wisconsin rallied at the close, but neverthreatened. Gorgas shot six baskets andfive free throws, making two-thirds ofChicago's points.The team is better than last year. Gorgasat center is a good as ever; Hinkle at guardis more efficient even than he was at forward. Birkhoff and Williams at forward,two new men, are excellent players. Birkhoff is small but fast and experienced; healways knows where the other men are,and has himself a keen eye. In the Michigan game, he ducked under Cohn's guard,came up behind him, and put the ball inthe basket. Williams is very tall, and useshis height effectively. Stegeman and Crislerare less knowing in basketball than theother four regulars, but both are willingand powerful guards. The team as a wholeis the heaviest in the conference exceptMinnesota's. Its weakness is in substitutes, its strength is in its defense. If itwins from Illinois, February 8, it will haveto be called one of the two best of theconference teams, the other being of courseMinnesota. Chicago and Minnesota, by theway, do not meet.TrackThere is nothing to record in track,though a score of good men are trainingregularly in Bartlett. Captain McCoshin the mile, Speer in the half, Moore inthe two-mile, are rounding into form, andthere are many more good second-stringmen than usual. The sprints and hurdlesand the high jump and polevault, however,are not promising. Now that P. W.Graham is back from the war, the pole-vault will be well seen to; but he may notbe in college or in form until spring. Ofthe freshmen it is interesting to note thatCampbell has run the quarter in 52 flat(Dismond's record is 51 3/5) and the halfin 1:57 2/5 (Bartlett record) and Kochanskithe mile in 4:30.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 131University NotesJames Rowland AngellThe recent announcement that DeanAngell had been selected as Vice-Presidentof the University has greatly pleased theAlumni. Dr. Angell is an educator of wideexperience who has made a pronouncedsuccess of all he has undertaken. His recent work in the Personnel Division of theGovernment was notable. He is a man ofkindly humor, of broad -sympathies; hisconstant, splendid service to the University in the past years clearly marked himas a man deserving of and well fitted forhis new position. He has rendered valuableservice to the alumni as delegate to theCouncil from the University.Dr. Florian Znaniecki, who was a studentat the universities of Warsaw, Geneva andParis, received his Doctor's degree fromthe University of Cracow in 1910. He wasfor two years .professor of philosophy inthe Normal School for Women in Warsawand vice-president of the Psychological Society of that city, and became a special instructor in the Department of Sociologyand Anthropology at the University ofChicago in 1917. THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGOSETTLEMENT NEWSWork During the Influenza EpidemicThe ability of the Settlement to adjustitself to the immediate and ever changingcommunity needs, which has been utilizedin so many ways during the war, was againput to a severe test by the influenza epidemic. At this time all normal activitieswere suspended, and the House was converted into an emergency hospital and adiet kitchen, which were supported by theStockyards Community Clearing House andby the Red Cross. Twenty patients werecared for in the hospital, and more thanthree thousand meals were carried out intothe homes of the influenza victims.As a result of this long interruption itwas the latter part of November before theregular Settlement activities began to beresumed. Now, however, the various clubsand classes are once more in full swing, andthe activities in general are returning tothe more normal type of pre-war times.The Girl's Trade School Resumes DayClassesThe Girls' Trade School, which has forseveral years been financed by the SigmaClub of the University, has this month returned to its original schedule of a six-hoursession five days in the week — a plan muchbetter adapted to carrying out the purposeof the School than the evening sessionwhich we were obliged to adopt in the fall.Under this plan a girl of working age isable, at the end of four months, to enter adressmaker's shop as assistant. With thisamount of training she can advance rapidly,and is apt to hold her position for a considerable length of time, instead of shiftingfrom job to job as is customary in the caseof the average working girl with notraining.Miss McDowell, Head Resident, ExpectedHome From FranceMiss Mary McDowell, the Head Resident,is expected home from France about themiddle of February. She sailed in Octoberby appointment of The National YoungWomen's Christian Association to make aninvestigation of the conditions of womenworkers in France and in England, especially in the munition factories. Miss McDowell has spent the greater part of hertime in Paris and in the factory towns ofSouthern France, having been granted admission to the factories themselves.Through the first-hand knowledge thusgained it is believed that she will be ableto bring back facts which will have a veryvital bearing on the safe-guarding of conditions for women workers in our owncountry.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEFaculty Members Returning from WarServiceOver thirty-two instructors have returnedfrom war and Y.

Religious and philosophical idealism was, indeed, a protest against this view,but a powerless protest, for it continuedto treat the given world as Nature and triedmerely to diminish its importance.This domination of naturalism has itssource in the tendencies involved in thepractical control of reality. All practicewhich uses existing objects for the production of new objects tends to treat Realityas a system of things and relations.Knowledge accepted this practical realityas the Reality, constructed Nature out ofits most permanent part, and finally beganto consider Nature as synonymous withReality.At a relatively late stage of human evolution, with the increasing complexity ofcultural life, across the need of consciously controlling not only Reality, but humanactivities themselves, or directing, developing and organizing them. In spite, however, of strenuous efforts of many generations, our control of activity still remainson a very low level. We are just beginningto realize this; the present great crisis hascertainly helped us to see "that we havepermitted ourselves to be blinded by thesuccess of material science and techniqueand have failed to bring a consistent, self-conscious and critical, intellectual attitudeinto the domain of cultural science andpractice.'This failure is due to the fact that intrying to control activity, men have beenusing the same methods and concepts whichthey had developed in controlling naturalreality. The practical worker or the scientist who deals with human activities is atbottom a "naturalist," treats activity as anatural happening and thinks of culture.the product of activity, as of a part ofNature. He contradicts himself at everystep, for lie is forced to admit that at leastthe higher types of activity are creative,and he cannot help believing that culturalevolution may and should be the realizationof ideals; whereas, if the world were aworld of nature, there could be no creation,BOOKS FROM THE FRESS 151|iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiniiiifiiiiuiiiiiiiiiim3 Wavh to tJje aiumnt| tltiis is an age of bemocracp. ■| lit is an age, too, luljen ttjittking people ace Stanbing up j| institutions that habe probeb themselbcs staunch sup-| porters of intelligent Democratic principles!. || tEhe Chicago American — a great ebening netospaper — || has: altoaps been such an institution.

Hefinds at every step objects which, thoughreal, are evidently not natural things orprocesses — words, myths, poems, institutions. He sees that the way in whichnatural reality appears to men varies fromepoch to epoch and from society to society.And yet, his naturalistic preconception isso strong that he fails to draw the properinference from these and other facts, anddoes not dare to conclude that nature, likeeverything else within the sphere of ourexperience and reflection, like language,myths and institutions, is an agglomeratedproduct of innumerable past activities ofconscious beings and a material for futureactivities, and is thus only a part of a wider,multiform and changing "Cultural Reality."Once this cultural character of the worldis recognized, entirely new horizons areopened for our science and philosophy andthe possibilities for the realization of ourideals appear unlimited.(See note on Mr. Znaniecki, page 131, University Notes, this issue.)(War Service: Continued from page 158.)Alumnae in War ServiceElizabeth Lingle, '00, Y.
