The graduate school is larger,the law school has overAttendance three hundred, the pre-medical courses are sojammed that the instructors are almost intears, the college of commerce has increased to six times its size of three yearsago. The entering freshmen in all undergraduate schools number over 950, and sections of English I meet in the Law Building and the Library for lack of spaceanywhere else. In short, there is not evenroom to turn around. This huge attendance is duplicated all over the country. Itis due, of course, to the facts that thehigh school graduates of 1918 and 1919 arenearly all starting their college work nowand the students who enlisted are returning in great numbers to their collegework. It is inspiring but probably notpermanent. On the whole the quality ofthe work seems higher than usual. Experience in war service seems to havesharpened the eagerness of the men foreducation, and not to have decreased theirpower of concentration.A new venture this year is the course inartillery-work, leading to a second lieutenancy in the artillery re-The Military serve. The governmentCourses has provided instructorsand nearly half a milliondollars' worth of equipment, includinghorses. The west end of Ellis Hall hasbeen completely remodeled and strengthened for the storage of the guns, and theSouth Park Commission has providedstabling. It was supposed that the registration in this department would be large,but the reverse is true. The hundred registrants required by the government will besecured this quarter, but no more. Nextquarter, however, the number is expectedto increase considerably. The difficultyseems to be in the fact that students sup- "" "" m m "" "" M" u" "" n"^— nit— »n nn mi— n«J.pose the course to require almost exclusively military. As a matter of cold fact,it scarcely interferes with the regular routine either of life or the curriculum.Two hours a week in the freshman andsophomore years, and three hours in thetwo final years, are all that are demanded,and these hours give full college credit.In the two final years, moreover, the government will provide a subsistence allowance of approximately fifty dollars aquarter, which about equals the tuition. Itis, however, paid in cash, so that studentson the scholarship list can apply it as theyplease. The department of Military Scienceis in charge of Colonel Marr and MajorLewis, with Dean Gale as general adviser.At this writing, before the Michigangame, the football team is still an unknown quantity. Its de-Athletics feat of Northwestern bya ridiculously high scoreis balanced by its poor showing againstIllinois. Injuries, frequent and annoyingrather than severe, have prevented it andwill prevent it from showing its fullstrength; for instance Crisler and McGuire,two of the best men on the squad, have sofar been unable to play, and Jackson, oneof the best tackles in the country, was inno condition to play against either Illinoisor Michigan, and was used only for a fewminutes in each game. The squad is large,but short of first-rate linemen, and particularly of good guards. Nearly everyman on the team was in the army or navyin some capacity, and the age and judgment of the players are both above theaverage. The freshman squad is large andlight, promising in the backfield but notso in the line. Mr. Stagg has been handicapped all fall by rheumatism, and Mr.Page had a leg broken in scrimmage earlyin October, but both have been on the fieldnearly every day, nevertheless, Mr. StaggTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEfrequently coaching from a maroon-coloredelectric runabout which was prepared forhim and lent to him by the agents of theMilburn Electric (Clark Sauer and DavidSmith, both well-known alumni), and subsequently purchased and presented to Mr.Stagg by the "Wearers of the C." Mr.Stagg's brains are fortunately not affectedby rheumatism.There is a drive on to develop alumniclubs all over the country. Arrangementshave been made for well-Alumni known members of theClubs faculty to meet such clubsfrom Massachusetts toCalifornia, and give them information ofthe University happenings and point ofview. Prof. Nathaniel Butler is givingmost of his time this quarter to such meetings, and has made arangements withfifteen so far. The time, everybody recognizes, has come for a tremendous development of alumni organization. No changeis needed in the spirit, but much is stilllacking in the opportunity for its expression. In conjunction with the alumniclub meetings, a campaign is under wayfor life memberships. The Alumni Councilwill not be satisfied with less than a quarterof a million dollars' permanent endowmentfrom life memberships of various kinds.The university has reached a point in itsdevelopment when its alumni will largelydetermine its future. If it is to do its bestfor its constituency, it must have morebuildings, particularly dormitories, moreequipment, and more pay for its teachingstaff. It has just turned over the incomeof two million from the permanent endowment to this last end, but more is needed.Everybody knows that the tuition in collegepays less than half of the actual cost ofteaching; in other words, everybody whoattended the university for one quarterowes society, through the university, atleast sixty dollars hard cash for the training he got; for four years he owes overseven hundred dollars, provided he paidfull tuition. Nor does this take into account in the least either loyalty, or thetremendous increment in his earning capacity that arose from such training.Figure out your own bill.The basis of the salary increase justmentioned has been much inquired about,but no official statementThe Salary has appeared. The basis isIncrease understood to be as follows: All full professorsare now paid a minimum of four thousanda year, all associate professors a minimumof three thousand, all assistant professorsn minimum of twenty-two hundred; nosystematic change in instructor's salaries,but individual increases made, according tothe judgment of the trustees, all along the line from instructors up. The foregoing isstrictly unofficial, but represents the generally held view.On Wednesday evening, November 5, byfar the largest dinner ever held by theChicago Alumni Club wasChicago Alumni given at . the UniversityClub Meeting Club, three hundred andtwenty-six attended. TheMichigan-Chicago game was the center ofdiscussion. Of the 1905 eleven, which beatMichigan in the last game before she withdrew from the Conference, Capt. MarcCatlin, Parry, "Bubbles" Hill, Boone, De-tray, Hitchcock, Meigs, Art Badenoch andEckersall were present, and Catlin wade aspeech that Rudy Matthews (yes, he ledthe cheering) said was the best speech anyman in the hall had ever heard. PresidentJudson spoke reminiscently, and raised theroof when he declared that he had to goeast that night, but had declined all invitations to address on the next Friday because he, of course, must get back to seeMichigan "properly welcomed by oureleven." Henry T. Clarke, the world-famous "Ikey," came on from Omaha topresent Mr. Stagg with his "little redwagon"; and then Mr. Stagg predicted victory over Michigan, and the walls fellin. Air. Stagg's speech, with its emphasisentirely on character-building, and thecombination of respect and affection withwhich it was listened to were most amazing. As Ikey said. "I would call him thefinest coach in the country, only I neverthink of him as that, but as the finestman." All in all, including Don Richberg'sanalysis of football bolshevism, it was agrand night.ALUMNI FUND CAMPAIGN«$• — H H-THE ALUMNI FUND CAMPAIGN*.After some years of study and preparation by the Alumni Council a campaign isnow being launched to raise an AlumniFund. Although there has for some timebeen a need for such a fund, not merelyfor the maintenance of the Alumni office,but for the expansion of Alumni work, andfor assistance that may thereby be rendered to the university, we have as yetmade no effort to create one. The time isWilliam H. Lyman, '14, Secretary of theAlumni Fund Committee IIfund, it would be unnecessary to createone merely to place us in line with similarfinancial activities as are carried on by theAlumni of other institutions. But the needfor a fund has now arisen. This need liesin the present necessity to fully maintaina permanent, financially independent andan adequately equipped Alumni Office sothat the highly useful alumni activities— -activities that are constantly growing inLeo F. Wormser, '05, J. D. '09, Attorneyfor the Alumni Fund Committeeat hand, however, when such a fund mustbe raised and the Alumni Council, underthe leadership of Chairman Frank McNair,'03, with the assistance of Leo F. Wormser, '05, as attorney, and William H. Lyman, '14, as secretary, and with the heartyco-operation of an able committee of menand women, has made plans for and is nowabout to carry out a vigorous campaignfor such a fund.The alumnae have taken hold of the project with marked enthusiasm. Miss Shirley Farr, '04, and Miss Ruth Agar,. '14,assisted by Mrs. Ethel Kaywin Bachrach,'11, have charge of the campaign amongthe alumnae.The. plan enables every graduate andformer student of the university to subscribe fully within his or her means. Thereare three classes of memberships:Life membership $ 50.00Sustaining membership at notless than 100.00Endowment membership at notless than 1,000.00All memberships carry dues to theAlumni Associations for life, and life-subscription to the Alumni Magazine.The alumni of the University of Chicagoperhaps stand alone, among Alumni of alllarge colleges and universities, in that theyhave established no Alumni Fund of anykind. If there were no need for such a importance — may continue; to publish astrong and serviceable Alumni Magazine;to fulfill the obligation resting on Alumnifor constructive thinking, and assistanceto the university and to education in general; and, in addition to that, the readyavailability of funds for various purposesas the changing conditions may dictate,such purposes, for instance, as libraries,memorials, loan funds, and endowment lectureships.The project to raise such a fund wasannounced at the June reunion and metwith hearty response from the many hundreds in attendance. There is every indication that "Chicagoans" will meet theCouncil and the Alumni Fund Committeemore than half-way in this campaign andthat the raising of the fund will be a success. While the opportunity to subscribe,after the fund has been started, will be acontinuing one, it is the hope of those whohave this matter in charge that everyalumnus or alumna will get in his or hersubscription during the week which hasbeen set aside for intensive solicitation —the week of December lst-6th. We urgeyou not only to subscribe, but to get other"Chicagoans" with whom you may come incontact to do the same. Let us raise• a fund which shall measure up to our sizeand importance as an Alumni body of theUniversity of Chicago.THE UNIVERSITY OFAlumni Club DevelopmentsPerhaps at no time in the history of ourAlumni Council has there been such encouraging activity in connection with therevival and the development of alumniclubs as at present. Mr. Harold H. Swift,'07, Chairman of the Clubs Committee, hasmore than made good his promise at thelast meeting of the Alumni Council thatthis fall term would see considerable clubactivity.Undoubtedly a large share of the interestand enthusiasm shown by the various clubsis due to the excellent assistance that isbeing rendered by Dr. Nathaniel Butler.(A brief sketch of his life appears on thispage.) He has carried to the clubs a spiritof endeavor and purpose, and in everyinstance has left the alumni with a definite impression that something of a permanent nature should be accomplished byeach club. The alumni, at the places visited, have been very enthusiastic and in allcases some definite results in the way ofpermanent club organization and activitymay be expected.The co-operation of the University in thiswork has been highly gratifying. Theyhave "loaned" us the services of Dr. Butlerfor three months and to some meetings President Judson himself has senttelegrams. Mr. Swift has arranged at themeetings held on the days of foot-ballgames to have the results of the gametelegraphed to the meetings. An endeavoiis now being made to have the result ofthe Chicago-Wisconsin football game onNovember 22nd cabled in time for a jointmeeting of the Chicago and WisconsinAlumni Clubs to be held at Manila, P. I.In common with alumni clubs of otheruniversities our club work naturally suffered during the period of the war, butthe revival which is now going on bidsfair to place our clubs and their activitiesin a strong and permanent position and.indeed, in a condition they have never before enjoyed. Dean Shailer Mathews andProfessor Charles Hubbard Judd have alsobeen assisting in this work by addressingmeetings in places where they could be onhand while engaged upon their lecturesthroughout the country. "Teddy" Linn,too, was present at Milwaukee. A scheduleof the club meetings held or arranged forthus far, the majority of them visited byDr. Butler, is as follows:Tri-City Club (Davenport, Rock Island,M'oline), Oct. 24; Milwaukee, Oct. 29;Pittsburgh, Oct. 31; Washington, Nov. 1;Des Moines, Nov. 6; Omaha, Nov. (>; SiouxCity, la., Nov. 7; Columbus, O., Nov. 8;Wichita, Ks., Nov. 8; Emporia, Ks., Nov.12; Lawrence, Ks., Nov. 13; Kansas City,Nov. 14; Indianapolis, Nov. 19. CHICAGO MAGAZINEDean Nathaniel ButlerBecause of his keen interest and effectiveassistance in our present alumni club development, it is but appropriate that thealumni throughout the country know something of the life of Dr. Nathaniel Butler.He was born May 22, 1853, at Eastport,Maine. He received his A. B. degree fromColby University in 1873, and his A. 1876. He has subsequently received thedegrees of D. D. and L. L. D. Dr. Butlerhas been connected with various institutions in his educational work; from 1884to 1886 he was professor of rhetoric andEnglish literature at the old University ofChicago, and from 1886 to 1892 was atfirst professor of Latin and later professorof English language and literature at theDean Nathaniel ButlerUniversity of Illinois. In 1893 he came tothe new University of Chicago as actingprofessor of the University Extension Division and from 1894 to 1895 held theposition of director of that department ofthe University. He was the delegate fromThe University of Chicago to the World'sCongress on University Extension held atLondon in 1894.From 1895 to 1901 Dr. Butler was president 'of Colby College, Maine, and in 1901returned to The University of Chicago asprofessor of Education. From 1905 to 1909he acted as Dean of the College of Education, and since 1916 he has been thedean of the new University College, thedowntown department of The Universitv ofChicago. It can be- seen from this brierreview of his work that Dr. Butler hasbeen noted as a man of organizing andconstructive powers, and for that reasonhas been called upon by various institutions, including The University of Chicago,to organize and build up new departments.'The alumni are fortunate, therefore, in having a man of his powers to assist in building up the alumni club phase of theiractivities.The Alumni Council and the alumni atlarge feel deeply indebted to Dr. Butler.AFFAIRS 9I Alumni AffairsVermont Alumni Club OrganizedOn October 9, at the State Teachers"Convention at Montpelier, Vermont, a Vermont Alumni Club was organized. ErnestG. Ham, '08, Principal, of Randolph, waselected president; Professor Bertha M.Terrill, '08, of the University of Vermont,at Burlington, was elected vice-president,and Mrs. E. M. Lovejoy, '97, of SouthR o y a 1 1 o n, secretary-treasurer. M r s.Charles F. Moran (Florence E. Bicknell,'17), of Jericho, and Miss Shirley Farr, '04,of Brandon, were elected members of theexecutive committee. Professor Judd, ofthe University of Chicago School of Education, who was attending the State Convention, addressed the alumni at this meeting, and the address and gathering wasgreatly enjoyed by all present. All alumniin Vermont are urged to get in touch withMrs. Lovejoy, as a big meeting in June,at the time of our general reunion, isplanned. ■Tri-City ClubSecretary, Alumni Council:T am sure you want to know all aboutour "get-together" meeting on October24th. We are feeling very much elatedover its success and want to thank you,first of all, for sending Dr. Butler to us.We held our meeting at the DavenportCommercial Club. After a brief informalreception in the parlor, Mr. Lau, the clubpresident, called the meeting to order, andafter necessary business was dispatched,he introduced Dr. Butler as the speakeiof the evening.Before Dr. Butler commenced his address, he read to us a telegram which hadbeen sent by President Judson, congratulating the club upon its new organization.Dr. Butler was so instructive, so full ofhelpful suggestions and so sparkling withwit, that we regretted having him bringhis address to a close. Following the address, there was eager discussion of suggestions made by Dr. Butler. We then adjourned to the dining room, but continuedour discussion there informally.Reminiscence brought to light the factthat two of the members present hadknown the university in its earliest days:Mr. E. K. Putnam, who was there in 1892,and Mr. Paul Mandeville, who was therein 1893, and who arranged the music forthe "Alma Mater."Nine new members joined the club during the evening, bringing our present clubmembership to thirty-two, of which Davenport has seventeen, Rock Island thirteen,and Moline two. Among the projects dis- I1„._,._ „._ „._ „_.,_.._.._.._ .._.._.,,_.._,,_.,_.§.cussed, the club in general seemed to favorthe lectureship or forum plan. With thesinging of the "Alma Mater," and a goodold Chicago yell, this most successfulevening was brought to a close..Sincerely yours,Ella E. Preston,Davenport, Iowa. Secretary.The Milwaukee ClubOn October 29th, twenty-five membersof the Milwaukee Alumni Club of the University of Chicago had dinner at 6:30 inthe Colonial Room of the Hotel Wisconsin. The guests of honor were Profs. Nathaniel Butler and James Weber Linn,from the university. Albert B. Houghton,president of the local club, presided. Wehad two corking good talks from Profs.Butler and Linn and the upshot of themeeting was we decided to organize ona more permanent basis, adopting the simple constitution and by-laws suggested bythe Alumni Council and electing officersfor the coming year as follows:Mr. Albert B. Houghton, president; MissBarinka Neuhaus, vice-president; Mr. RudyD. Matthews, secretary and treasurer;Miss Caroline Murphy and Dr. Ernst Miller, members of the Executive Committee.Dues of $1.00 a year were authorizedand because of the many good suggestionsreceived during the one-minute talk thatwas given by each person present the Executive Committee was authorized to siftover the material and present at the nextdinner, some time in January or February,a definite program for constructive action.We very likely will establish a scholarship fund for one or two graduates fromthe Milwaukee high schools and there willbe a number of other matters that we willtake up later on. Those present were:Albert N. Butler, Henry Ericson, LauraM. Houghton, Caroline Murphy, BarinkaNeuhaus, Mrs. Grace Simons, MargaretCanty, Martha D. Fink, A. B. Houghton,Dr. Ernst Miller, Sallie L.

The visit of Deanmt U1\1V£.KSITY Ot CHICAGO MAGAZINEButler was prearranged and the dinnerwas announced for his benefit. The visit ofDean Angell was an added and unexpectedattraction.

Hiles, friend of Dr.Nathaniel Butler, of the University ofIllinois.The address of welcome to Dean Butlerwas made by Rev. Frederick Tower Galpin, and the address of welcome to DeanAngell was made by Dr. Walter V.

Beginning with this issue of themagazine news items and reports of interest to former students of the School ofEducation will be included each month. Inasmuch as the organization of the Schoolof Education Alumni Association was perfected during the Summer Quarter the report for thismonth isdevoted almost wholly to matters relating to thepu r p o s e sand plans ofthe association.Organization of theSchool ofEducationAlumniAssociationOn Friday, July18, a meeting washeld to consider theadvisabilityof organizing a School of Education Alumni Association coordinate with the College AlumniAssociation of the University of Chicago,the Law School Association of the University of Chicago, the Divinity Alumni Association of the University of Chicago, etc.The meeting was attended bv students inresidence who had previously taken certificates or degrees in the School of Education. The organization of an associationwas urged by those present for the following reasons:(1) It would bring into a single organization more than fifteen hundred former students of the University who are especiallyinterested in the problems of education.(2) It would establish a channel throughwhich students who have received certificates or degrees in the School of Education'^The Midway, in Front of the School of Educationcould keep in touch (a) with the developments in that division of the University, and(b) with items of interest concerning formerstudents.(3) It would provide opportunity forformer students of the School of Educationto meet together, to talk over old times, andto discuss problems of common interest.The sentiment in favor of the organizationof an alumni association was so clearly anddefinitely expressed that it seemed advisable to proceed at once with the routine oforganization. A committee was accordinglyappointed to draw up a constitution and tonominate officers for the ensuing year.William E.McVey, A.M., Summer 1919,Principal ofThorntonT o wnshipHigh School,Harvev Illinois, wasa ppointedchairman ofthe committee. Af-t e r thecommitteehad completed i t 3work ameetingwas calledfor Thursday, August21, to complete the or-ganizati o nof the association.Preliminary to this meeting a copy of theproposed constitution was sent to each student in residence who had received a certificate or degree in the School of Education. A letter was also included in whichthese students were asked to study theconstitution carefully, to attend the meeting,and to participate in the organization ofthe association. The meeting was wellattended and the proposed constitutionadopted. It is very similar in most of itsprovisions to the Constitution of the College Alumni Association of the Universityof Chicago.

It is believed thatthe association will flourish most satisfactorily during the coming year under theleadership of the following officers:President — Mr. L. W. Smith, Joliet, 111.;A. M., 1913; Ph. D., 1919.First Vice-President — Mr. S. C. Miller,Elgin, 111.; A. M., 1918.Second Vice-President — Miss Clara Jones,St. Louis, Mo.; Ph.

D., 1917.Active Membership in the AssociationActive membership in the association, including the privileges of voting and holdingoffice, is contingent on the payment of theannual dues. The School of EducationAlumni Association has adopted the plan inregard to dues which is followed by allother alumni associations of the University,namely, to combine in one payment the subscription for the University of ChicagoMagazine and the association dues. Anystudent who has received a certificate ordegree in the School of Education may become an active member in the associationand receive the University of ChicagoMagazine on the payment of the annualdues. of $2.00, fifty cents of which is association dues and the remainder is the yearlysubscription for the magazine.A vigorous campaign is now on for activemembers in the association. It is believedthat hundreds of graduates of the School ofEducation will want to receive the University of Chicago Magazine each monthas well as notices and announcementswhich will be sent out from the Alumnioffice from time to time. Furthermore, theofficers are confident that every graduatewill want to contribute definitely to thefinancial support of the organization. Thelarger the membership the more active andenergetic can the association become. Ifyou have not already subscribed for themagazine for the year, send in the annualdues of $2.00 at once, and thus associateyourself more directly with the activities ofthe association. Indicate at the time thatyou remit that you wish to be classified asan active member of the School of Education Alumni Association.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINERoy Baldridge of ChicagoA Book Review in the Chicago Daily News by Harry Hansen, '09.Baukhage are Both of the Class of 1911 Baldridge and"I WAS THERE." A book of the A. E. F. in France.Drawings by C. LeRoy Baldridge. Verse by HilmarBaukhage. G. P. Putnam's Sons.Certain publishers in the east announce abook of drawings by C. Leroy Baldridge,and a good many persons who knew Royat the University of Chicago and in NewYork and in the army in France, will sendhim postcards of congratulations. I am going to reverse the process and say that Ithink felicitations are due you, the publicwho readstheselines, be-cause apublishingfirm h asmade itp ossiblefor you tolearnaboutRoy. DearReaders,east andwest, Icongratulate you.As a matter of fact,Roy won'tcare agreat dealwhe th e rhis drawings areavailablebet weenlinen andboardcovers, orjust loosein a portfolio, forRoy wouldcontinueto drawand to findjoy in express i n ghis ownideas onthings,even ifthey rein a i n e dunpublished. But it does matter to you andto all of us. For here is an artist who hashad the courage to stay honest with himself. And, being honest with himself, he ishonest with you and me, and what he givesus is just what he would say to us, and is■c f\ the product of his own experience in theworld.When I first saw Roy he was lugging aportfolio of drawings across the campus ofthe University of Chicago — oh, several college generations ago. Men who knew himthen will talk to you about him by thehour — but not necessarily about his drawing. They will tell you about his honesty,his candor, his sense of democracy, his unfa i 1 i n ggood humor andh i s faithin his fellow men.He started to drawthen, andhe drewfor everybody whoaskedhim to —the collegedaily, themonthly,the students' annual — justfor thejoy of thething. Hesat in withChi c a g oart classesat oddmomentsand grewin tec h-nique andforce f u 1-ness andthen therecame atime inhis careerwhen helived in aroom highup in theTowerbuil dingon Michigan boulevard and drew ads for garters andbrands of bacon and such like. It neverbrought him any money and he neverpushed it hard, for he was satisfied with asandwich lunch when other men with moremeager talents were eating lobster stew,WtiUafWAT BEAUNE, FRANCE 15He was supremely happy about his work —and no one who saw it could fail to sharehis optimism.Then he went to New York, and when thewar came he tramped up and down Belgiumand drew a few pictures about it — just asone would make a few notes in a book — andthen the injustice of the thing got under theskin and he enlisted to drive an Americanambulance in France. When we got into thewar he just naturally became Baldridge,private, infantry, and so he signed his pictures.And the odd part of it was that with thewar came his great opoprtunity. There wasthe Stars and Stripes in Paris — the armynewspaper with no hampering traditions, nobusiness policy to serve, no political connections to satisfy. A bunch of youngAmericans were having their fling in its columns, just writing themselves down for thelove of the thing, and here Roy began todraw cartoons. Just like he felt — and manyof us who have treasured these clippingsthink he came closer to the spirit of thedoughboy than any man before or since..There was no New York editor to tell himthat he must draw_ simpering heroes for theNew York editor's idea of the Americanpublic. He didn't have to drag in a parlorlamp, a four poster bed and a spinnet deskand a girl shouting for victory as if it wereher last cry of anguish after a mad tear onBroadway. He drew what he saw, and intohis work went all his old sincerity, his democracy, his faith in men.As for the army, they ate them up. Iheard a doughboy once say: "That birdknows his business."I have talked with Roy about these drawings in Paris — in his little bedroom miles up, it seemed, in a house far out of plumbon the He de la Cite, where he could lookdown from his dormer window on HenriQuatre in bronze, and the Pont Neuf andthe pale blue reflections of gas lights inthe swirling, eddying Seine. I have talkedwith him across our sandwich meal atDuval's — the Childs of Paris — and heardhim say: "Gad, if I can only make the public see what war is — what a dirty, low thingit is, and how brutal it makes men, fine,clean men — then they'd fight to the lastditch for the league of nations. We're thelast hope of these people — and if we letgreed come in our way now we'll fail them— and we won't be able to look anybody inthe face." And then I remember how Royand Baukhage, another former Chicagoman, who wrote for the Stars and Stripes,and who has written some real doughboylyrics for this book, were the only twodoughboys who got into the velvety carpeted hall of the peace conference on theday that President Wilson read the covenant of the league of nations, and how Roycame back from that meeting and remarkedwith that odd touch of sincerity in hisvoice: "That was the most wonderful meeting I was ever at, Harry. It was worthfighting the whole war to hear Wilson readthat covenant. That's what I came overhere for and went into this war for.""You know Roy," said Baukhage. "Itaffects him like that."It is in that spirit that he has made thedrawings that will be available in this book.And so I repeat, dear public, you who havebeen surfeited with art that is drawn onlyto. get the shekels, I congratulate you. It'syour luck — and mine.The photograph showsa gathering of" Chicagoans "who wereamong the in-structorsat the notedArmy University, A. E. Beaune,France, duringthe spring of1919. It showsProfessorW.

Ryerson•J. .._.._.,_., . ._„*Nothing could be more fitting in thepresentation of these brief biographies ofthe Trustees of The University of Chicagothan to begin the series with that of MartinAntoine Ryerson. This series is intendedto "bring more closely together" our trustees and the alumni ;Mr. Ryerson's audience will certainly beamong the widest.One of the originaltrustees designatedby the ExecutiveBoard of the American Baptist Education Society in 1890,he was named in thearticles of incorporation of the University and was electedPresident of theBoard of Trustees in1891. He has servedthe University in thelatter capacity eversince, and in a forceful manner that hasbeen a very largefactor in the remarkable growth of the"City Gray."Martin A. Ryersonwas born at GrandRapids, Michigan.October 26, 1856, theson of Martin andMary Ryerson(Mary A. Campau).When yet a boy hecame to Chicago, receiving his early education in the Chicago public schools.His education was later broadened bystudies in Paris and in Switzerland. In1H78 he was graduated LL.B at Harvard,and then returned to Chicago, where, onOctober 26, 1881— his twenty-fifth birthday— he married Carrie Hutchinson of Chicago.Perhaps no citizen of Chicago has takena more constant, more direct, or a broaderinterest in the development of the metropolis. His services to the University havebeen but a part of a large program of service to the community. Active and able inbusiness, he very early became a factorin the business and commercial developmentMartin A. Ryersonof the Middle West; he is now a director ofthe Corn Exchange National Bank, of theNorthern Trust Company, and of the ElginNational Watch Company.But his interests were never limited tofinancial matters. He clearly recognizedthat mere material growth is never sufficient to make a community great — that thespiritual, educational, artistic, and social lifeof a people deservefullest attention. Inaccordance with thatview, Mr. Ryersonhas long and ablyserved church activities in Chicago; hehas given notablehelp as vice-president of the ChicagoArt Institute, and asvice-president of theField Museum ofNatural History. In1901 he erected andpresented to the ArtInstitute a most valuable art library.Charitable and similar interests havenot appealed to himin vain for assistanceand guidance, as isamply evidenced bythe fact that he is adirector of the Chicago Orphan Asylum, a trustee of theO. S. A. SpragueMemorial Institute,and of the CarnegieInstitution at Washington, as well as amember of the Rockefeller Foundation.the Chicago Literary,Union LeagueAs a member ofCaxton, Cliff Dwellers, o_and Press Clubs he has helped to encourageliterary and artistic endeavor; as a memberof other clubs he has figured in the city'ssocial life. During the war he devoted tothe War Savings and other patriotic campaigns his executive ability and energywith far-reaching results.To us, of course, his service to the University is of first interest. As President ofour Board of Trustees, Mr. Ryerson is ex-officio member of all standing committees-this association has brought him in touch(Continued on page 34)TRUSTEES 19Andrew MacLeish -..—.*1»^an— aa aa— aa— aa— an— an nn .a— an an aa un n4tThis sketch of the life of Andrew MacLeish may well give all members of theUniversity and the alumni good causeheartily to repeat the famous cry — "Scotland forever!" For Andrew MacLeish, manyyears vice-president of our Board of Trustees, in which position he has characteristically rendered noted service to the University, was born at Glasgow, Scotland,June 28, 1838. His parents, Archibald andAgnes MacLeish (Agnes Lindsay), came ofthat sturdy Scottish stock which has givento the world in general, and to America inparticular, many ofits builders of successful institutions.After receiving hiseducation at Glasgow, where he wasgraduated from thehigh school, Mr.MacLeish came tothe "young- andpromising Chicago,"in 1856, to start abusiness career.After four years withthe firm of J. B.Shay & Co., of Chicago, he entered theChicago dry goodsfirm of Carson, Pirie,Scott & Co., and assisted in starting theretail department,which has developedinto one of the largest retail departmentstores in this country. His exceptionalefforts have placedhim among the leaders of that group ofmerchants which hasmade the city notedfar and wide.During the periodof the founding ofThe University ofChicago, those who had that project incharge recognized its need of large-mindedand public-spirited men — men who saw theimportance of higher education. They wereneeded to assist in developing the institution to the size commensurate with its opportunities, in a great and growing centerof the nation, not only for national but forinternational usefulness. This early recognition of the destined place of the University resulted in the selection of Mr. MacLeish as one of the guiding and up-buildingforces of the institution in the first Boardof Trustees. That this selection was ahappy one, that the helpful interest of Mr.MacLeish in the University could alwaysAndrew MacLeishbe counted upon, is well attested by his longperiod of executive assistance and by hisgenerous donations. His keen interest inthe scholastic side of the Universityprompted a donation for a scholarship; hisdesire that the institution should have thenecessary and proper facilities for administrative purposes, led to his recent donationof $100,000 for an administration building.As vice-president of the Board -of Trustees,Mr. MacLeish has been, like Mr. Ryerson,an ex-officio member of all standing committees and, as such, has done much towardsolving the various difficult problems thathave arisen in the conduct of Universityaffairs.His son, Bruce — bythe second marriageof Mr. MacLeish, toM. Louise Little, ofChicago, in 1880 —was graduated A. B.from the Universityin 1903, and is withthe firm of Carson,Pirie, Scott & Co.;Mr. Andrew MacLeish is now a retired member of thatfirm.Among the valuedservices rendered tothe community atlarge, Mr. MacLeishhas served as a trustee of Rush MedicalCollege, and has beena prominent factorin civic interests asa member of theUnion League andthe City clubs. Whenoccasion offered hehas served the nation in patriotic activities. As a member of the Quadrangle Club and of theSkokie Country Clubhe has taken part inthe social life of theUniversity and of the city. His presenthome is at Glencoe, Illinois.In the eighty-second year of a long, successful, and useful life, Mr. MacLeish hasfully earned the high regard and esteem ofhis associates and of the citizens of Chicago; but especially has he won the esteemand affection of the members and of thealumni of the University. With the true,courageous, and far-seeing spirit of thepioneer, he has always been willing and ableto surmount all difficulties and to achieveand assist in accomplishing great things.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINECharles L. Hutchinson — "— *+. „ „ „ „„ „, „ „ „, „„ „„ „, n (0_„j,"Annual 'C Dinner, Hutchinson Cafe";"University Sing, Hutchinson Court"; "General Alumni Dinner, Hutchinson Commons."Not alone residence at The University ofChicago, but reunion after reunion havebrought before students and alumni thesignificant name of "Hutchinson." It is butnatural, therefore, that the alumni shouldwish to know something about the bearerof that name.Charles Lawrence Hutchinson was bornMarch 7, 1854, at Lynn, Massachusetts, theson of Benjamin P. and Sarah Hutchinson(Sarah Ingalls). In 1856 his parents movedto Chicago, whereMr. Hutchinson spent A his boyhood daysand where his homehas been ever since.In 1873 he was graduated from the Chicago High School.He was honored byTufts College, Massachusetts, with anhonorary A. M. in1901, and, in 1915, bythe same degreefrom Harvard University. In 1881 hemarried Frances M.Kinsley.From the time heentered business asa young man, Mr.Hutchinson has beenidentified with thecommercial and financial expansion ofChicago and the surrounding territory.He first became agrain merchant, forsome time beingpresident of the Chicago Board of Trade.Later he became abanker, and rose tothe position of vice-president of the Corn Exchange NationalBank. He is at present a director of thatbank and also of the Northern Trust Company. He was chairman of the fine artscommittee of the World's Columbian Exposition and one of the men who, throughthat World's Fair, made the city internationally famous.Being a man of wide interests, his assistance has been enlisted in a variety of enterprises for the betterment of the city.For thirty-five years he has been presidentof the Art Institute of Chicago. No citizenof Chicago has done more to develop appreciation of things beautiful than he. Under his guidance the Art Institute has be-Charles L. Hutchinsoncome one of the leading institutions of itskind in the United States. He has beenpresident of the Chicago Orphan Asylum,president of the American Federation ofArts, and vice-president of the Egypt Exploration Fund; he has been treasurer ofthe Renaissance Society of the University,of the Cliff Dwellers, of the Municipal' ArtLeague, and of the Chicago Sanitary District. Mr. Hutchinson is now a director ofthe Presbyterian Hospital, a trustee of theCarnegie Institution at Washington, a trustee of Rush Medical College, and a memberof the South Park Commission. When it isknown that to these services is added a longcareer in civic and other activities as a member of prominentclubs, having patriotic, literary, educational, charitable, andsimilar aims, one isimpressed with thefact that Chicago wasindeed fortunate inhaving such a citizenas Mr. Hutchinson.It is not surprising,then, that at thefounding of The University of Chicago,he, like Mr. Ryerson, was named bythe American Baptist Education Society as a trustee ofthe new institution.His name appears inits articles of incorporation, and he hasbeen treasurer sinceits beginning. Aschairman for manyyears of the Committee on Buildingsand Grounds, as wellas of the importantFinance and Investment Committee, inaddition to servingas treasurer, he hasbeen a great factorsteady progress. Hegiver to the Univer-_4in the Universityshas been a largesity, making possible "the ere'ction" of Hutchinson Hall, with which so many thousandsare now familiar. The fountain in Hutchinson Court was donated by him, and (indicating his keen appreciation of beautifuldetail) he also provides the bulbs whichyearly are planted about the Court, Th.% alumni of any university look withthankfulness upon some few men who havedone most toward making their alma materwhat it is, the institution which they cherish-our alumni regard Mr. Hutchinson as assuredly one of such a group that has wellmerited such lasting esteem.LETTER BOX 21The Letter Box4_ iCawnpore, INDIASocial Worker Graduates of the University of Chicago, Chicago, 111.,Dear Secretary:Mrs. Wiser (Charlotte Viall, '14) and Ihave just been assigned to a task in Indiawhich to our knowledge is the only one ofits kind held by Americans. Needless tosay, we want to make good and we wantyou to help us to make good by keeping usin touch with anything that you think maybe of service to us. Our problem, of course,is very different from anything at homebecause of caste complications. However,we may be able to adopt things which youhave found useful.We are missionaries of the AmericanPresbyterian Church, on Missionary's salary, but stationed for three years with alarge boot and shoe manufacturing firm,namely, Cooper, Allen & Co., Ltd., of Cawnpore, one of the largest industrial centersin India. We have been sent here for thepurpose of "ameliorating the conditions oftheir 4,000 work people." Just what we aregoing to do and how we are going to doit we do not quite know. Our training inthe University of Chicago did not give usmany suggestions as to how to work withwhat our high caste Indian assistant calls"first class dirty low caste." We have theadvantage of having 900 of these families ina model self governing village.We cannot force these people to adopthelpful measures, otherwise they will leavetheir work and defeat the very purpose forwhich we came. But somehow we are totry to convince them that such things askeeping flies from swarming on the baby'smouth, sending the children to school fora short time each day, consulting traineddoctors instead of filthy midwives, and finding amusement in something other than thenautch, are practical helpful, and cheap.This will not be very easy considering thatpractically all of them are illiterate. You,however, can perhaps furnish us with material that will help us. If you do we promiseto use it or pass it on to some one whom itmay help.Not all of the employees are of the abovetype because a very large number are highercaste Hindus and Mohammedans. Aftergetting things satisfactorily under way in the village we will have to turn our thoughtsto these people.We cannot give details of conditions inone letter and without details it may bedifficult for you to decide just what to sendus, but if what you have has proved successful at home for boys or girls, men orwomen, send it along. We can adapt to Indian conditions. It is safe to assume thatwe have none of your material and if wehappen to have a duplicate copy we willpass it on. If you know of something whichwill involve expenditure of money, pleasetell us about it and if we can we will arrange to buy it.India is looking toward English andAmerican Social Agencies for constructivesuggestions. Most efforts now being madeby educated Indians to better conditionsare imitations of what they have observedor heard about in England or America. Wewant them to have a chance to benefit bythe best of the real thing and in this effortwe hope you will share.Sincerely,W. H. Wiser, '15.An Opportunity for Some AlumnusNovember 4, 1919.Editor of the University of ChicagoMagazine:At the university there has been developing rapidly during the last three years aninterest in contemporary literature. During the summer of 1919 there were onehundred thirty-nine students in the class,fifty-nine of whom were graduates. At thepresent time Professor Robert Herrick hasa very large registration in the same class.Contemporary American literature as conducted by Professor Percy Boynton haslikewise drawn large registrations. The interest in literature since 1890 is expressedalso in other directions. The success ofcontemporary writers who have deliveredWilliam Vaughan Moody lectures as wellas of lecturers in this contemporary fieldat other institutions further illustrates thepoint. Interest in literature develops aninterest in personalities. In the summerquarter, 1919, lecture program, the secondlargest attendance recorded was at an illustrated lecture on contemporary Englishwriters. Photographs, lithographs, etchings and engravings together with MaxBeerbohm's cartoons seemed to delight notTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEonly the students in English 142, but thegeneral audience in Mandel Hall. Thereseemed to be a considerable intellectualpleasure in the comparison of a photographof Samuel Butler with the mental imagecreated by the reading of his works. Thewistful expression of Gilbert Caiman, theconscientious objector, gained additionalsignificance when compared with the keenface of Compton Mackenzie of the BritishExpeditionary Force, or the virile jaw otHugh Walpole of the British Red Crossin Russia. The interest in the personalities of writers since 1890 certainly existsand has been found at once to result from,and to operate in the direction of increasing, interest in the literature of the period.During these years William Rothensteinof London has anticipated popular andeven critical appreciation of novelists andpoets of the time by making lithographer!portraits of men who are now recognizedas established men of letters. Very earlyhe made portraits of Bernard Shaw, MaxBeerbohm, W. H. Hudson, Joseph Conrad,Thomas Hardy, George Gessing, A. E.Housman, Robert Bridges, H. G. Wells,John Sargent, Aubrey Beardsley, Lord Kelvin, Alfred Russell Wallace, Rodin, Haupt-mann, and Verlaine as well as youngermen. This remarkable series of lithographed portraits discussed by HolbrookJackson in his "Romance and Reality" isvery difficult to procure. I have, however,located the whereabouts of a complete setmade for an important patron, each printselected by Rothenstein himself.The three very rare prints of Verlainealone sell for $100.00 each. There are twodozen prints which ten years ago sold for$35.00 and $40.00. The set includes a veryrare folio of Oxford portraits, only one ofwhich was sent to America, only twenty-five having been printed. The presentowner of this collection is willing to sellit to the University of Chicago for $750.00,considerably less than half what the print3would cost if bought singly in the open-market even were they available. If theUniversity of Chicago does not desire thecollection it will be sold to a certain oneof the national British portrait galleries.I have taken an option on the collectionin the belief that some alumnus of theuniversity, appreciating the assistance thatsuch a collection will offer to the Department of English, appreciating also theartistic significance of this collection,unique in this country, awake to the growing significance of lithography in the eyesof artists and collectors, and believing inthe general purpose of such an organizationof the Renaissance Society, will purchasethis group of pictures for the university.Yours very truly,David A. Robertson. The University of Chicago SettlementNewsThe University of Chicago Settlementhas for its neighbors Slavic peoples of allgrades of development. The process ofAmericanization is often too fast with theyoung and too slow with the older members of the family. The Settlement has metthis need in its recognition of the culturalinheritances of the parents — through exhibits of old-country handwork, by singing their national songs and by lectures inthe foreign tongues on American life. TheSettlement has always believed that culture is a possession that grows best byhanding its life roots from one generationto another. The children of foreign parentage are taught reverence for the languageand best traditions of the parents' past, inorder that the first generation born inAmerica may have respect for authority.For fifteen years the School of Citizenshiphas taught English and simple civics tothe most ambitious young Polish, Bohemian and Lithuanian men and women. TheSettlement's Americanization work hasbeen many-sided, believing that good understanding and inspiration are even moreimportant than the teaching of English.This has been a nervous summer "backo' the yards." The workers have beenfearful that the war conditions of hoursand wages — the best they have ever known— would be changed. In the midst of thislabor restlessness came the race riot. Thecolored people are not residents of thisdistrict, but some thousands work in theyards, and because they have come in during strikes in the past, an economic prejudice has arisen, the foreign people havingnone of that prejudice against black peopleheld by the Irish and the Americans. Ithas been proved that the most dangerouselement during the excitement were theyoung men between seventeen and twenty-four years of age, both black and whiteThey came from so-called athletic clubs,financed by low politicians. Many of theseyoung fellows are not bad, but they dowant a place in which to spend their leisuretime. The Settlement has about two hundred of this type in the immediate neighborhood who are clamoring for a "Hangout" for themselves this winter. A roomin the Settlement basement, provided withbilliard tables, awaits a man to have charge.The one thing lacking is a scholarship of$1,000 for a University of Chicago manwho shall act as director for a year andmake this "Hang-out" for working boys afact.NEWS 23+ a a ._.. . +i News of the Quadrangles iIn looking over the files of The DailyMaroon for October, 1919, I note in thefirst issue a headline about "whirlwindyear." Probably for many opening editions the head-writers have set down thewords "whirlwind year," but this year itlooks as if the student who wrote thosewords was a writer of graceful truth. Lastyear I used the adjectives "wartime" and"reconstructive," but to sum up the month— and what looks like the year — I shallhave to say "whirlwind."Because of the unusually large enrollment this year, fraternity chapters usuallyincluding about twenty men now includethirty-five, some of them forty perhaps.At first it was thought that because of thelarge incoming class the Greek letter menwould pledge an unusually large number,but contrary to expectations the fraternitypledge lists did not reach any startlinglyheavy total. Sigma Alpha Epsilon headedthe list with fifteen freshmen, and Psi Upsilon and Sigma Chi took thirteen each.Some say that the pledging was too conservative, but the various chapters, withtheir unusually large memberships, probably did not feel the need for manypledges,Of course all the various campus activities are going strong. The Daily Maroon,with an enlarged staff, is working into thepolicy of a six-page paper, somethingnever tried before. During October onesix-page paper was issued" each week, andthis month, the Maroon announces, twoand three six-page papers a week will beissued, with the hope that by the beginingof the next quarter The Daily Maroon willnever have an issue of less than six pages.The Maroon is also going to put out aliterary supplement each month to take theplace of the former Chicago LiteraryMonthly and its successor The Chicagoan.At present there is no medium for purelyliterary effort on the campus. John E. Joseph, '20, is managing editor of The DailyMaroon, and Grant S. Mears, '20, the business manager.The Y. M. C. A. has been moderatelybusy thus far. Gerald Karr Smith is thegeneral secretary, and James Nicely, '20,the president. The Y. M. C. A. got outthe "C" Books as usual, and sold everyone. John E. Joseph, '20, and J. WarrenMulroy '20, took care of the editorial andfinancial sides respectively. Freshmanluncheons, pep sessions, smokers, andseveral evening "mixed" parties are otherrecent "Y" doings.Blackfriars is not doing a lot right nowalthough Abbot Frank Priebe, 20, and¥,„,», Roland Holloway, '20, are outlin ing plans for the 1920 production. A callhas been sent out both to students andalumni for plays, the contest closing December 1. Manuscripts are to be sent incare of the Faculty Exchange. The Dramatic Club has shown signs of life underthe presidency of Carlin Crandall, '20, byvarious meetings and by a program of one-act plays to be presented on the nights ofNovember 21 and 22 at Mandel Hall. Noadmission will be charged. Louis Dooley,'21, is stage director of the plays.The Reynolds Club, as all other organizations, has felt the stimulus of heavyregistration. Its membership is greaterthan ever. Moffat Elton, '20, heads theclub this year, and, of course, your oldfriends, Harry English, "Doc" Bratfish andJames, are to be seen within its portals.The bowling alleys have been rented outand greatly improved, and the club's dancesare now held on all three floors, the attendance is so large.Many other organizations have beenbusy. The Undergraduate Council sawthat the freshmen and sophomores gotmixed at the annual Bartlett Mixer, heldOctober 17. Elections are the next important step, and they will take place abouta week after this is off the press. Dopeis still pretty slim, and politics rathercalm, but there is plenty of time yet forexcitement. The Honor Commission hasbeen meeting. That body arranged thenew chapel attendance plan. Slips are nowpassed out just before the close of the exercises, so that fewer slackers spend theirtime in the nearby Reynolds Club on theirchapel days. The Commission electedFrank Madden, Helen Thompson, JamesNicely and June King, all of 1920, to serveuntil graduation. New members of theCouncil elected this fall to fill vacancieswere Gerald Westby, '20, and Allan Holloway, '22.Many other things should be mentioned,such as the Freshman Frolics, the Y. W.C. A. membership drive, the work of theFederation of University Women, the reorganization of the Glee Club, the classparties, the Three Quarters Club, the moving of the Faculty Exchange to the Pressbuilding, the transformation of the southwest corner of Ellis into a garage forbig guns for the military work, the 337 recipients of the Noyes scholarships, theconvocation for Cardinal Mercier, the absence of Mr. Angell, the lectures, the Orchestra concerts, the Commerce Club, andso on, but this is all space allows. It hasbeen a splendidly busy month.John E.

A. Stagg hasever turned out.Director Stagg was so badly crippledwith sciatic rheumatism when practiceopened September 15 that he was not ableto be present, and for two days the practice went on without his direction. Onthe third day the "old man" managed toget out, and he has not missed a day since.Clark Harris and "Skee" Sauer helpedgreatly by loaning an electric to Mr. Staggfor the duration of the football season.The car now belongs to the coach, becausethe order of the "C" presented it to Mr.Stagg at the annual football dinner, November 5, and greatly embarrassed the"old man" by so doing.Pat Page, who has never before beenhurt, further complicated the coachingproblem by breaking a leg October 8 in ascrimmage with his freshmen, but fortunately the break was not serious, and Patmanaged to get around on crutches thenext day. Pat threw away the props the night of the dinner and is now anxious tobump into those freshmen again.As finally boiled down, the squad consists of 10 letter men, and 17 eligibles. The"C" men are: Capt. Charles Higgins, righttackle; Colville Jackson, left tackle; Wilson Stegeman, left guard; James Reber,center; Bernard MacDonald, end; PercyGraham, quarter; Moffat Elton, right half;Harold Hanisch, fullback; Charles McGuire, guard; and Robert Halladay, end.The other men are: Paul Hinkle, JohnSchwab, and Colvis Fouche, ends; AndrewBrunhardt, and Roland Barker, tackles;William Pheeny, Donald Smith, and RobertGordon, guards; L. W. Tatge, quarter;Robert Cole, Duncan Annan, Herbert Crisler, Buell Hutchinson, and Jerome Neff,halfs; "Chuck" Palmer, and "Shorty"Dygert, fullbacks. Some of these men willnot be long without a letter.A summary of the material as a wholewould be: a really great backfield, and afairly strong line. Graham is just aboutas good a quarter as can be found anywhere; Cole is a marvel of cleverness andspeed in the open field; Annan is close behind Cole, and Elton and Hanisch areplungers who gain. Stagg has so manygood men that it makes little differencewhom he starts, for Hutchinson, Tatge,Palmer, and Neff, would be regulars onmost any team in the Big Ten.The line looked like a weak combination in the early practice, and when thetest came, it was the line that failed.Capt. Higgins plays his tackle, and partsof the other positions on the left side ofthe line; Jackson played equally well untilhe was hurt in the Northwestern game.But the center of the line is not overlystrong, and in the Northwestern and Illinois games the ends were sucked in andboxed time after time.Great Lakes opened the season October11, and went down, 123-0, in a farce performance. "Butch" Scanlon brought abunch of fighters and a well-drilled defenseup from Purdue the next week, but theMaroons made it 16-0. Northwestern wasnext in line, and because of the Purplegenerosity, and the Maroon's ability, Chicago won, 41-0.With Jackson out of the line-up, and ona wet field, at LTrbana, Illinois won a bittergame, 10-0, November 1. The Illini foughtbefore a big home-coming crowd, and theyfought to win, literally knocking theMaroon line off its feet, while the backsplunged through for 5-yard gains. Cole,Graham, and Annan were helpless, partly25because the field was so slippery, andpartly because the line failed to support.Elton and Hanisch were the only backsable to gain, and they made their ground on line plunges.

ALUMNI FOOTBALL DINNER(Continued from page 10)[hat the first Chicago-Michigan footballgame was played neither at Ann Arbor norat Chicago, but at Toledo.Donald Richberg, instead of delivering his annual "pome," as poet laureateof the club, surprised everybody byreading a "Bolshevik letter" concerningthe team's past performances. This letter, which caused great merriment, isprinted in this issue. Mark Catlin, introduced as "Marcus Catilinus," the "oldRoman," who was captain of the 1905 teamwhich defeated Michigan 2-0, told of thespirit which actuated the team of that day.Teddy Linn gave a characteristic talk.Henry Clark, one of the "old timers," thentold of the love and esteem which thealumni have for Mr. Stagg, and capped theclimax by the announcement that the "C"men were that evening presenting the maroon electric in which Mr. Stagg had beencompelled to do most of his coaching thusfar this season, as a gift to "the grand oldman."Mr. Stagg was then called upon; he wasvisibly affected by this great and surprising token of esteem. It was plain thatwhatever speech he may have prepared forthe occasion he had at that moment entirely forgotten it; he was unable to speakfor a few moments, and then gave astraight, impromptu talk from the heart.He explained that in his earlier days atthe University he had planned to enter theministry. Circumstances, however, hadprevented the carrying out of this aim, andhe then turned to athletics as his life work.He had been early convinced, he said, thatathletic work offered a man an opportunityto be of great moral and physical help toyoung men, and in that spirit set outupon his work as a coach. He defendedfootball, which, he stated, had often beenunjustly attacked, saying that from hismany years of experience it was his firmconviction that the good derived for youngmen from the game far outweighed anyundesirable results. He thanked the alumnifor their most evident appreciation of hiswork, and stated that he was sorry thathis illness had prevented him from givingto the team this year the best of his powersas a football coach. Mr. Stagg closedamidst cheering that again evidenced theesteem in which he is held by the alumni.The great success of this gatheringwas in a large measure due to the excellentpublicity work and management by HarveyL. Harris, '14, secretary of the" ChicagoAlumni Club. (An editorial on this meet-— : ing appears in this issue.)SOVIET FOOTBALL TEAM" 27Ii "The Soviet Football Team"(Supposed letter, read by Donald Richberg at the Annual Football Dinner of the Chicago Alumni Club) I,a— aa— aa— aa— H*jiDear Brother:The work of organizing the Universityof Chicago Soviet has proceeded rapidly.We began with the football team, working through Mr. Graham, the popularquarterback, who is a well-known "red,"and Mr. Jackson, a member of the notedRed Jackson family. Graham and Jackson formed the first soldiers' and players'committee. As soon as most of the squadhad been converted to bolshevism wepulled off a practice revolution. Before thefighting season began we had forced Mr.A. A. Stagg, Autocrat of Athletics at Chicago, to abdicate.He is now imprisoned in a small redautomobile in which he is driven up anddown the field and allowed to give adviceoccasionally in a respectful manner, whenrequested by the players' committee. Heis no longer permitted to use harsh language and his ancient tyrannical authorityhas been completely destroyed.The next obstacle to the proletarian control of football was a violent young czarnamed Page. We reduced him promptlyto a paragraph. Two of our brothers onthe freshman squad broke his leg veryneatly. This retired him to the sidelinesfor some time.Having overthrown tyrants we proceededto prove the efficiency of an industrial democracy. Our immediate- triumph wasspectacular. The Great Lakes team delivered itself into our hands, trained onstrictly old-fashioned principles and theNew Democracy just ate them up. Everyman on our squad was given a chance toplay, but only the long distance runnerslasted more than ten minutes at a time.The official score was 123 to 0, but thatis an under-estimate. The touchdowns came so rapidly that the officials lostcount. Some of them were so exhausted,running up and down the field, that theyarbitrarily took time out, to lie down andrest, and when we went on scoring theyrefused to count the touchdowns theydidn't see.However, 123 points was a decisive victory and convinced our new converts thatbolshevism was the real thing and whenproperly understood and applied wouldsweep everything before it. Unfortunatelythese novices became too enthusiastic.The younger lads, like Cole and Higgins,got the notion that all we had to do wasCHESTER A.

Well, just about that time Butchlet out a horrible roar and began expressing his inmost opinions about the delegation in loud, lewd and loathsome language.He referred to their ancestors and discussed their families, their habits andfrailties in such an intimate and offensiveway that our boys were greatly shockedand left in the midst of certain commentswhich sounded like those of a doughboychasing cooties.We heard that Scanlon went back andtold his team that we were a bunch ofconscientious objectors. At any rate theyfought very viciously and used a lot ofugly language toward us and we had ahard time beating them even by 16 points.This experience was a good lesson forour fellows. They realized that principles won't triumph alone and we must putmuscle as well as enthusiasm into ourwork. Then Mr. Stagg and Mr. Page werevery nasty in some of their comments onthe trouble we had had in advancing theball. M. Stagg said our defense was prettygood. He said it would be hard for anyteam to break through that solid ivoryline. But he said if it wasn't opposed toour principles he would suggest that welearn to carry the ball forward occasionally. He had evidently heard about ourbrotherly talk with Scanlon because he congratulated us in a sarcastic way on ourhugging match with Purdue and asked ifwe were going to play kissing games withNorthwestern.The boys got all wrought up over thatand they said they'd show the old man;and they made him go back into his littlered car and wave a red flag, while theyplotted to ruin the Purple. As a resultthe Northwestern game found us on ourmettle and it was a real slaughter. Youshould have heard Charley Higgins' speechjust before the kick-off."Brothers," he said, "the eyes of Europeand Asia are upon us. There stands thePurple, emblem of royalty and tyranny.We wear the red of the new day. Forwardagainst the oppressors! Le jour de gloireest arrive!"Then all the boys who had been in Francecried: "Marchons-Marchons" and therewasn't a dry eye on the team. Some ofthe boys wept all .through the game, andbelieve me, a weeping team is hard tobeat.

That 41 to 0 revived the ideathat we bolshevists couldn't be beaten.Monday night the soviet meeting was heldand it was voted almost unanimously toput in a week of study on our collegecourses before the Illinois game. I'll explain the reason. Several of the professorswho used to be quite bolshevisty have hadtheir salaries raised recently and have goneover boots and breeches to the capitalistcrowd. Certain ones of our red brotherswere worrying for fear these newly richprofessors would throw them off the teamjust because the profs, were feeling so anti-red.You see there is a system at Chicagowhereby almost every professor has a ropeon some member of the team, and it is ahard job to keep an entire team safe fromthe whole faculty throughout the footballseason. This year there was almost ascandal before the Purdue game. One professor, who is quite a football fan, wantedStagg to play Cole at quarter. Stagg referred him to our Committee, of whichGraham is a member, and the Committeesaid, "nothing doing." Then this professor tried to declare Graham ineligiblethinking Cole would be played at quarter.But we fixed him by calling a strike of allthe co-eds. After twenty-four hours ofrioting Prexy intervened and got an injunction preventing anybody from doinganything, which, of course, settled everything for everybody.Well, I started to explain that the boysdecided to study during the week beforethe Illinois game, because so many of theprofessors were sore about our soviet government and were hinting that it would bewell for the little Trotskys, as they callus, to keep up to our grades.But even after a week of intellectualeffort I think we would have beaten Illinois if it hadn't been that Butch Scanlontold Zuppke about our bolshevist ideas.So. Zuppke, the old fox, called in a wiseprofessor down at Champaign and gave theteam two hours of special secret practiceof a kind that isn't in any book of footballtactics, — but was just like what Austria didto Italy in the war days. Do you remember?Saturday our boys came on the fieldmentally prepared for victory. Higginsmade another speech — all about Karl Marxand Lenine and Trotsky and how 180,000,-000 Russians were resting on their armsthat day watching to see what we woulddo to Illinois. Then Red Graham and RedJackson sang the Marseillaise, and whenthe whistle blew we rushed at the Illinilike madmen — and then on the first line upevery man in the Illinois line leaned overand said: "Greetings, brother!" and theirbackfield gave our backfield the high signof universal brotherhood and — say, it brokeus all up.

In so doing, however, his purpose is not to emphasize the differences inthese religions, but to point out those elements which they hold in common, thosephases of religion that point to the psychological unity of man. These he shows tobe the fundamental and universal conceptions, the differences being in many casessecondary and local. The author does nothesitate to point out the relation of someinheritances of Christianity, in common withother great religions, from primitive ancestry, and the result of the study of this bookwill be a greater respect for all the religionswhich have found a large place in theworld's thinking.Two new chapters have been added: "TheReligion of the Celts and Teutons" and"The Unfolding of the Idea of God in theReligions of the World."Is Christianity the Best Religion? Thisis the question which actuates the largemajority of those thinking men and women who desire to read or to study a book onthe religions of the world. Even the collegestudent, who seeks at all hazards to knowthe truth, hopes that his investigation maypermit him to believe more, rather than less,profoundly in the religion of his inheritance. The reading of Professor Barton'sbook will leave no shadow of a doubt, andwill give an intelligent basis for believing,that Christianity is the best religion.The University of Chicago Press will publish November 15 The Revelation of John,by Dr. Shirley J. Case, Professor of EariyChurch History and New Testament Interpretation in the University of Chicago. Dr.Case is the author of "The Evolution ofEarly Christianity," "The Historicity ofJesus," and "The Millennial Hope," all published by the University of Chicago Press.Do you understand the book of Revelation?Do you know when and why it was written?Do you know what the writer meant by"The Beast." Do you know when John expected the Millennial Reign? It answersall of the foregoing questions and manyothers. It is not too technical for the person with average biblical knowledge.
