I)The department of military science at theuniversity is on a firmer footing than lastquarter. The enrolment isMilitary somewhat over the hundredScience demanded by the govern-Assured ment, a double-work classhaving been added which isenabling a number of students who registered this quarter to get level with theregular requirements for the spring. Captain Vance, who was assigned elsewhereduring part of the autumn quarter, hasbeen returned to duty at the university,and the teaching staff now consists of Captain Marr (Lieutenant-colonel until therecent demotion of officers of the regulararmy), Major Lewis of the reserves,and Captain Vance, also of the reserves.With the students who will return nextfall and the larger registration expectedfrom the class of 1924, the department ispractically assured of permanency.The resignation of Harlan O. Page, coachof the baseball, basketball and freshmanfootball teams, and man-of-A Page all-work in the department ofMissing physical culture and athletics,is a blow. "Pat" will takecharge of athletics and general physicalculture at Butler College, Indianapolis. For fourteen years, as an undergraduate and asa coach, he has been identified with athletics at the university. As an undergraduate he was a member of more championshipteams than any other student ever at Chicago, and was chosen as an "All-Western"player in football, basketball and baseballin the same year. His popularity as coachis shown sufficiently by the fact that everywearer of the C now in college signed apetition asking reconsideration of his resignation. The die, however, is apparentlycast. He is to leave at the end of thepresent quarter, by which time it will beknown, incidentally, whether he has weldedtogether a championship basketball five oronly a runner-up. Speculation concerninghis successor has not reached even the stageof rumor yet. Meanwhile, it is good toknow that Mr. Stagg is back, with healthmuch improved by a sojourn in Florida.The Quadrangle Club is engaged in raising fifty thousand dollars to insure thebeginning of its new homeThe Quad- this year. The club-houserangle Club will stand on the southeastto Move corner of Fifty-seventh streetand University avenue, justa block from its present location. The landand $150,000 are given by the universityTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEin return for the club's surrender of itspresent location, which is needed in connection with the site for the great chapel.As the club-house, with improvements andfurnishings, will cost close to $200,000, theclub members are raising the sum needed,apparently without much difficulty. Themembership of the club includes many residents of the neighborhood who arc notofficially connected with the university, besides a number of alumni, who in theirfirst ten years out of college may have allthe club privileges (except voting) for tendollars a year.The roster of the American Associationof University Professors shows more members from Chicago than fromA Matter any other institution in theof Opinion country — 89. Wisconsin has84, and California, Columbiaand Harvard follow in order. Whetherthe independence of mind which is part ofthe Chicago tradition has led to this preponderance, or whether the faculty is justnaturally made up of "joiners," nobodyseems to know. But the percentage ofmembers among those eligible is very high.Why this should lead me to think of raidsand Attorney-General Palmer I do notknow. It may, however, interest the alumnito learn that two undergraduates were arrested in the recent flurry. One was guiltyof being in a vegetarian restaurant at atime when the police descended on it insearch of aliens. After being kept in confinement all night, he was discharged bythe judge in the morning when he provedable to name the members of the footballteam last fall and to give the scores ofthe games. The other is out on bail —seventy-five hundred dollars — after havingbeen in jail two weeks on the charge ofhaving political opinions advocating forcein altering the government, a charge whichhe, by the way, earnestly denies.IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIM Hutchinson Court —To remind you that the June Reunion iscoming.

The profession of teaching incolleges is threatened all over America.Hardly a day passes in the office of theHarvard Endowment Fund without a callfrom the representative of some collegewhich is planning a drive for further endowment.The reasons given are always the same:First, the existing staff is suffering from thehigh cost of living; the college is unable togive a square deal and a living wage to themen without whom no college can exist.Second, the recruiting of teachers has become almost impossible.Men of unusual intellectual attainmentswho would be selected by college facultiesto carry on the work of teaching, cannotsee the possibility of self-support in themeager salary of $100 a month which isoffered as a beginning. Even if they areinclined to try, and anxious to follow theprofession of teaching, the call of commercial life, with its promise of financial reward,greater at the beginning and limited in thefuture only by their own abilities, is astrong one.In every college the men who were already absorbed in the profession of teachingand whose associations and friendships arewell established are carrying on as bestthey may. These older men cannot keepup their departments without the constantaddition of young assistants. The discouragement of trying to keep up to a highstandard of education under the constantlyincreasing handicap of an inadequate staffis almost as hard upon these older men astheir own individual troubles with the rentand the grocer's bill.The colleges of America are among hergreatest assets. They have grown in number and in size as the nation has grown.They have spread from Cambridge, where,in 1636, John Harvard established out firstventure in higher education to the farthestcorners of the country. The money available today for carrying on these pricelessplants which belong to us all is insufficient.Like any public service corporation theymust have enough income to pay expensesand upkeep.From these colleges America expects todraw a steadily increasing number of youngmen with trained, alert minds and highideals. America must depend upon these young men for the leaders of the future,in medicine, in law, in business, in government, in the arts. This supply of youngmen, which is the hope of the future, is seriously threatened both as to quantity andstandard. Its conservation is of vital interest to every American father and mother,to every individual interested in the development of America along social and business lines.It is not only those who have had thebenefit of a college education who shouldfeel called upon in this emergency. Theirnumber is less than one per cent, of ourtotal population. The other millions havebenefited directly or indirectly from thework done by our colleges. In every activity of our normal lives we are forced to relyupon trained minds. School teachers, doctors, lawyers, dentists, ministers, trustedpublic officials, have been able to carry onfor the community their individual workbecause of what the colleges gave them.Without these educated men, how couldwe have advanced as a nation to our present position in the world?Like an army, we must have officers. Itis upon the type of men who are allowedto lead during the next few years, in education, in commerce, in banking and inpolitics, that our future greatness willdepend. The colleges are asking for fundswhich must be considered as the best insurance for the future that the nation canprovide. In what way other than by education can we fit the coming generations todo the work of the nation?All told, the amounts asked are not muchmore than the first war fund asked by theAmerican Red Cross — $100,000,000. America gave this fund gladly, and in less thana year gave another fund of $175,000,000 tothe Red Cross. The need to relieve suffering, the desperate necessity of winning thewar, brought forth those gifts.Today we are faced with another formof emergency. On meeting that emergencydepends much of our future. If the peoplewill understand, if the men of great wealthwill realize the true meaning of these college campaigns for endowment, there canbe no question of the outcome. Americanbusiness success, great individual wealthpiled up in safe deposit boxes, will meanlittle if we of this generation allow thenation to turn back on the path of education and social advancement which it hassteadily followed since the Pilgrims firstlanded at Plymouth.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEIThe University of Chicago Post of the IAmerican Legion jBy Norman G. Harte, '20 IFor several months, in fact ever sincethere has been an American Legion, therehas been agitation toward the organizationof a local Post here on the campus at theUniversity of Chicago. Due, however, tothe pressing need of readjustments to meetpost-war conditions, no concentrated efforttoward the organization of such a post wasmade until the opening of the autumn quarter, 1919. As soon as the rush of registration week had passed, and the HousingBureau had solved some of its knotty problems, a survey of the student body wasmade by some of those who were mostvitally interested in the establishment ofa Post here on the campus. The resultwas very favorable indeed. As is now generally well known, the registration was thelargest in the history of the University.This was due, in some degree, to the factthat a large number of students who haddropped out of the University to serve theircountry during the war were returning tofinish their work here. The great numberwho were in the University on Alfred Noyesscholarships was a good indication of thehigh percentage of ex-service men whowere on the campus. We have no actualfigures as to the percentage, but they willno doubt appear on other pages in thismagazine.The great number of ex-service men whowere on the campus, however, was enoughto convince the most skeptical that therewas a place here for a Post of the AmericanThere was no reason then for a delayand after some preliminary and rather informal discussions among some of thosemost interested in the matter, a meetingwas called to talk over the possibilities.As the first meeting was called solely forthe purpose of getting some data on theadvisability of establishing a local Post onthe campus, letters were sent out to representative men asking them to attend aninformal meeting at the Reynolds Club. At this meeting the subject was discussedpro and con and it was unanimously agreedthat a Post should be organized. To thisend a general meeting of the student bodywas called in Kent Theater on the night ofNovember 20th.Attendance at this meeting proved theinterest that was being taken by the students not only in the American Legion asa national organization, but also in the organization of a local Post in the University.Kent theatre was packed. The Universityband was present in full force and startedthe affair with some good lively music. Themen then sang a few of the songs thatwere so popular during the war. Just forthe sake of old times and old memories,everybody joined in and a post-military atmosphere was soon created. Followingthese preliminaries, the actual business ofthe evening was taken up, with Dean Hallof the Law School acting as chairman. Hespoke briefly of the purpose for which themeeting had been called, and then introduced the principal speaker of the evening■ — State Adjutant Searcy of the Departmentof the State of Illinois. (The State organizations of the American Legion are knownas Departments.) Searcy prefaced his remarks by telling of the difficulties he hadin trying to find the campus and Kent Theatre and assured us that his wanderings overthe South Side had greatly increased hisknowledge of geography in general, andof the South Side in particular. He thenoutlined the work of the Legion up to thepresent time. He traced its organizationfrom the time of the St. Louis caucus upto and through the National Convention atMinneapolis, and on down to the presentwork of the Department of the State ofIllinois. He contrasted the work of theLegion with that of similar organizationsthat followed the Civil War and pointedout that the abolition of sectionalism wouldrender the work of the Legion much morecomprehensive than that of former similarorganizations. He told us of the ideals,principles and policies of the Legion asthey were worked out at the National Convention and brought out quite forcibly thatmembership in the Legion was a membership for service and not one of pleasure orhonor.Following his address a temporary organization was effected, and the followingPOST OF THE AMERICAN LEGION 131temporary officers were elected:Post Commander — Norman G. Harte.Vice Post Commander — R. F. Munger.Adjutant — C. K. Bowden.Treasurer — John Nuveen, Jr.Application cards for membership werepassed out to the men as they entered andafter the meeting had adjourned it wasfound that some two hundred of these hadbeen signed up.The election of the temporary officerswas only a beginning of the work of theorganization of a Post and two weeksanother meeting was called. At this meeting the name for the local Post was agreedupon, the dues were fixed, and some of thepolicies of the local Post brought up anddiscussed. An application for a charter wassigned by about fifty men, and this has beensent to the National organization. Presentplans call for a meeting early in the winterquarter, at which time permanent officersfor the Post will be elected and committees appointed to take up some of the permanent work of the Post. A great manymen who are eligible for membership inthe Post are new on the campus this year,and some valuable help is lost, I am sure,because they are not known by us personally. The only way we can reach them isthrough a friend who knows them, or byhaving them volunteer their services.Another point that is quite a question atthe present time is that of affiliation. Asthe National organization has made noruling on this point in question as yet, wecan do nothing definite in regard to thelarge number of men who belong to Postsin their own home towns. We need theirhelp and it is to be hoped that somethingdefinite will be decided soon in regard tothis question.When the question of a local organizationcame up, several men asked the question,"What need is there for a Post here?" Ifthere is a place for a Post of the AmericanLegion anywhere, there is surely a placehere. Let us read over, once again, thepreamble to the constitution:"For God and Country we associate ourselves together for the following purposes:To uphold and defend the constitution ofthe United States of America, to maintainlaw and order; to foster and perpetuate aone hundred per cent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of ourassociation in the great war; to inculcate asense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation ; to combat the autocracyof both the classes and the masses; to makeright the master of might; to promote peaceand good will on earth; to safeguard andtransmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy; to consecrateand sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness."The local Post subscribes fully to the preamble and will strive to uphold the policies embodied therein. We believe fullyin one hundred per cent Americanism butdo not feel that all else is necessarilyto be condemned. We may be able toforgive some of the events of the past conflict, but we can never forget them. TheLegion will stand squarely against enemypropaganda, and this whether it appears inbomb throwing or in some of its subtlerforms. If we are careful in our observations and can read correctly the signs thatappear to us, we may find that we havesome work to do not far from home. Apolicy of pure Americanism leaves littleroom for doubt or question.The local Post will have regular meetingsand in addition to its regular business meetings, take up a discussion of some of thepresent-day topics. Our duty in the yearthat is to follow looms up plain — to developthe organization, the inclusion in it ofevery person eligible to membership, thebuilding up of the Post into a sound, coherent body, the promotion of the activeinfluence of the Legion along the lines laiddown by the National Constitution, andlast but not least the performance of ourduty to our comrades.There can be no question but that thetime has come for harmonious teamwork.There ought to be no room in the Legionhere for men of selfish purposes, no matter how they are indicated or for whatcause they are exercised. The Legion hasbeen organized for a splendid and worthyachievement, and I can only appeal to themembers of the local Post of the Universityof Chicago for active, constructive and saneco-operation.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE■!•■■— n-.— h« — h«— — hB— if.

Thereseems to be a vague idea in the minds ofthe inquirers that the work of the Bureauhas to do only with the securing of positions for students in residence who find itnecessary to aid themselves by some part-time work. The best answer to the question may be found in a brief outline andsketch of the work.At present the functions of the Bureauare as follows:1. To place students in touch with part-time positions.2. To place students in touch with vacation positions.3. To place former students and Alumniin touch with permanent positions (otherthan teaching).4. To secure University employees (forpositions other than those of an academicnature).The first two functions were the chiefwork of the Bureau originally and are wellorganized. Positions have been securedfor or offered to practically every studentapplicant. Our aim is to improve on thetypes of work which are offered and to getthose which, other things being favorable,are most remunerative.The old method of seeking positions forstudents was to appeal to the employer onthe strength of his sympathetic interest inthe supposition that students who aremaking an effort to earn all or part oftheir expenses should be entitled to consideration for positions. We no longer depend on this method, however. We aremaking an active effort to interest employers in the fact that there is a greatbody of students at the University, manyof whom are interested in part-time or vacation work and that this is an importantsource of labor which has not been developed.The necessity on the part of some stu dents to earn part or all of their expenseswhile in college is regarded only as anincentive which makes them of additionalvalue to an employer. In this time of costsystems it has been noted that for manykinds of work, intelligent part-time helpis more valuable than disinterested full-time help which has been unfortunateenough to have a limited education.From the point of view of the student,the part-time work is valuable not onlyfor the remuneration connected with it,but for the actual experience in businessand the insight gained into the methods ofbusiness institutions.In the past year many Alumni or theirfirms in need of special assistance, havecalled upon this Bureau for studentsequipped to do work of a clerical, stenographic, secretarial, sales, drafting, investigating or shipping nature, for a few hourseach day or for a few months' vacation.In many cases, firms have been able toget over the peak of their load only bythe aid of this part-time student help.Some larger firms are beginning an experiment in part-time help in the hope ofinteresting a small percentage of the menin full-time positions at graduation. Onefirm which was using two hundred of ourmen for part-time recently, was sopleased with their assistance that it gavea banquet to the men to show its appreciation. At this banquet, some executivesof the firm outlined the possibilities ofpermanent positions for any of the meninterested after their graduation.The result of this part-time placementof the Bureau is inevitable. It has builtup a good will or prestige among employers which is causing them to look toand depend upon us for college-trained menfor permanent positions.With the close of the war we took upthe task of placing Alumni in permanentpositions as a matter of course. Thesource of our material consisted of menUNIVERSITY EMPLOYMENT BUREAU 133and women returned from service. Thepositions offered were to a large extentwith firms of Alumni backing or satisfiedemployers of part-time help. With theexpansion of industry during the past fewmonths, the demand for help has grownconsiderably and we often find it impossible to fill all the positions offered because of lack of applicants for positions.In most cases the work has been in thenature of production, cost accounting, personnel, sales or credit work or social service. The salaries and requirements haveinterested not only men and women justgraduated, but those with three to sixyears of business experience. The prospect for the future is even brighter so faras college graduates are concerned and weexpect an increasing number of positionsto open up.At first thought the logical connectionbetween the fourth function and the otherthree may not be evident. It has evolvedbecause of the need of a centralized agencyto secure and develop employees just as apurchasing department has been built upto buy materials efficiently. As a resultall other departments depend upon theEmployment Bureau to furnish information as to the labor market; to interviewand take applications from all applicants; to check up references; to recommendcandidates for positions and to maintaina complete file of information about University employees. In turn this necessitates on the part of the Bureau not thepassive attitude of waiting for applicants toappear, but a considerable activity indiverting a stream of available helptoward the quadrangles. To maintain aforce of twelve hundred employees andprovide the additional help required by expansion, calls for a knowledge of thesources of labor. This and other problemsrelating to the ethics of employment, wages,working conditions, co-operative referencesystems, physical examinations, etc, call forstudy, discussion and co-operation of theclosest kind with employment departmentsof various firms in the city. This is the relationship which gives us an opportunity toknow where the need for part-time studenthelp and for graduates is greatest.Every Alumnus can be of great assistance to the Bureau by recommending to itany prospective student who may needpart-time work while in residence or anyperson competent to take a full-time position in a University office. In addition anyinformation concerning positions or anyrequest for help will be thoroughly appreciated and will receive prompt attention.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE^ ._ „_ .,— .,— ,. ._„ .._„ ,.. _„—„_.._._.,—,. ., ,. a. a. „ a. a. a. ... ._I News of the Quadrangles IHull Court GateThe Washington Prom this year will beheld Feb. 20 at the South Shore CountryClub. As Washington's birthday this yearfalls on Sunday, a dance held on the eveof that day would have to end at midnight,and of course the leaders do not wish toviolate the custom of dancing until 2o'clock. The Prom last year was held atthe South Shore Country Club, and thatplace was found much more satisfactory,so that the decision this year generallymeets the approval of the campus.The 1920 Prom leaders of the right wingare Chancellor Dougal and Edith West,and of the left wing Frank Theis andPhyllis Palmer. All are, naturally, members of the class of 1920. Dougal is amember of Delta Kappa Epsilon, EdithWest of the Quadranglers, Theis of Sigma Chi and Phyllis Palmer of Sigma.They have chosen the following chairmenfor the committees from the Senior class:Reception committee — Elizabeth Walker;Ticket committee — Frank Long and JuneKing; Program committee— Eleanor Atkins; Publicity committee — Jasper Kingand John Joseph.Tickets are now on sale and this yearwill cost six dollars. Expenses havemounted heavily since former years, andthe leaders have calculated that they willneed every cent of that amount to avoiddebt. The War-tax, of course is additional. A movement is now current onthe campus to abolish the sending of flow ers by the men to their Prom partners,and the tickets state that flowers will beprohibited on the dance floor. So the undergraduates and Alumni who are figuring a Prom budget can safely omit theusual (and high) flower expense.The campus has been comparativelyquiet this month. We have had visitationsof the influenza and the grippe in fairlyserious proportions, but not enough so toclamp a lid on gatherings. On Jan. 16the debating team met Northwestern inMandel Hall and won in the negative in adebate on government ownership of thecoal mines. At the same time a team lostat Ann Arbor while debating the affirmative of the same question. Of the threecolleges represented in this triangle debateChicago came out ahead, having garneredthe largest total number of points.Blackfriars is busy running off its lyrics,music, poster and program-cover contests.Prof. Sargent and Assistant Prof. Whitford, of the department of Art Education,are acting as judges for the poster andprogram-cover contests. Posters are dueFeb. 11 and program-covers Feb. 25. BothAlumni and undergraduate men are eligible to compete, and those interested havebeen requested to get in touch with theBlackfriars via their Faculty Exchange,Box 286.The Interfraternity Council is runningoff the interfraternity bowling contests atthe present. Two leagues have beenformed, and' the Reynolds club alleys arebusy all the time. Teams representingPhi Gamma Delta and Sigma Chi are nowtied for first place.The Three-Quarters Club has again putforth a plan for a "good Freshman honorsociety." The results remain to be seen.Edward Waful, '22, is at the head of amovement to start a literary monthly, thefirst number of which will appear early inMarch. No name has been chosen. TheCampus Club held a large dinner on Jan.21, at which Prof. "Freddy" Starr was theguest of honor. Base Hospital No. 13,which contained a great many Universitymen during its career abroad in the war,held a reunion dinner in Hutchinson Cafeon Jan. 20. Men within a radius of 100miles were present. Noyes service scholarships for the Winter quartet were awardedto about 400 men. Of this number 39states were represented, and it was estimated that the majority of men in residence who had seen service were recipients of the scholarships.John E.

Illinois, with five straight, leadsthe procession. Chicago's chances for ultimately coming out on top are good, for theIllini have yet to play any games on foreignfloors and the two Chicago-Illinois gamesare still unplayed.The season opened auspiciously enoughwith a 37-18 victory over Iowa on the Chicago floor, the long shots of the Maroonsgoing true while the Iowans were muffingshort throws under the cage. Wisconsin,in the second game a week later wasgreatly feared, but Page's team playedspectacularly fast basketball and the Cardinals seemed dazed by the pace, the finalscore being 37-19. Michigan, the nextweek, was more helpless at basketball thanat football, and Chicago won a very loosegame, 42-22, in which there was the mostragged kind of playing. So many Wolverines were sent to the showers for foulsthat the game was delayed five minutesuntil one of the exiles could dress and getback into the game!The disastrous Iowa contest was playedon Jan. 27, and the Hawkeyes played soclose a guarding game that the Maroonswent down, 19-22. The five rallied, however, against "Chick" Harley and the OhioState team on Saturday, Jan. 31, and madethe biggest score of the season, 46-22. Mr.Linn could safely state that "Chick" wasuseless as a basketball player, and no onewould take the trouble to contradict him.Director A. A. Stagg returned home aftertwo months in Florida, in time to see theOhio game, and speak to the "all county"football players, who were the guests ofthe Skull and Crescent. The "Old Man"is completely cured of the sciatic rheumatism which was such a handicap for a year,and he looks more fit than he ever has inthe memory of the present undergraduates.Under the direction of Mr. Stagg, theMaroon track team traveled down to La-Fayette on Jan. 31, and scored an easy victory over Purdue, 54J^ to 31^4. After twoyears without a place man in the sprints,the team finally uncovered one sprinter inFrank MacDonald, a Sophomore, who wonthe dash and high hurdles, and there ishope that he_will be able to place in allthe meets. Charley Higgins put five pointssafely in the Maroon column for the com- Captain Hinkle, 1920 Basketball Teaming Conference, by tossing the shot 46 feet7J4 inches. Fouche was second, but ninefeet behind the football captain. Capt.Speer of the track team won the half, withJones of the Maroons second; Otis won themile; Bowers the two mile, with "Hasty"Moore second; Harris tied for first place inthe 440, and Hall tied for first in the polevault. If MacDonald proves good enoughto win a place in the sprints, and Higginsdoes not break an arm, the Maroons aregoing to fight it out with Michigan for theindoor conference. Ohio State comes hereon Feb. 14 and "Chick" Harley will againdemonstrate his wares.The swimming team has been badly hitby the "flu" and a meet with the MilwaukeeAthletic Club was postponed. Iowa swimmers come here on the thirteenth, and thengo to Northwestern the next night, soCoach White is figuring on knowing therelative strength of the teams before theConference.Interest is keen in the coming Basketball Interscholastic, teams as far apart asPennsylvania and Oklahoma writing in forconsideration. Pat Page predicts thegreatest tournament in the country, andfrom present indications he is not far fromwrong. M. V.

The presentKent Chemical Laboratory is overcrowdedwith students. During and since the warthe need of developing research in chemistry has become increasingly important.A new building fully equipped for researchwork and advanced graduate work wouldleave Kent Chemical Laboratory for theordinary purposes of the Department.Such a building is estimated to cost about$350,000 and would be erected directly westof Kent Chemical Laboratory. Two gifts of especial value were announced at the recent Convocation of theUniversity of Chicago. One is by Mrs.Gustavus F. Swift, of Chicago, who adds$8,000 to the previous endowment of theGustavus F. Swift Fellowship, making theincome from that fellowship amount to$925. This fellowship is awarded for theencouragement of research, and is givenonly to a student who has already provedhis capacity for investigation.The second gift announced was that ofMr. Charles R. Crane, who renews his giftof $13,000 for instruction and librarymaterials in Russian Language and Institutions.In the annual report of President Judsonattention is called to the fact that in thefinal gift of Mr. John D. Rockefeller, December, 1910, it was stipulated that $1,500,-000 should be reserved for the erection of aUniversity chapel. Under the architect appointed, Mr. Bertram A. Goodhue, of NewYork, the plans are proceeding steadily.This building, which is expected to be abeautiful specimen of Gothic architecture,will be adapted for all general religiousservices, and for such formal services asthe various convocations. It will be erectedon the east side of the block in which thePresident's house stands and will have atower approximately 216 feet high. Thehighest towers at present on the quadrangles are those of the Harper MemorialLibrary, with a height of 135 feet, and theMitchell Tower 127 feet in height.Professor Julius Stieglitz, Chairman ofthe Department of Chemistry at the University, recently appeared before a subcommittee of the United States Senate to giveevidence on the importance of establishingAmerican independence in the manufactureof finer chemicals, especially the finer organic chemicals, which in the past have beenalmost monopolized by Germany. AssistantProfessor Gerald L. Wendt, also of theChemistry Department, recently addressedthe Western Roentgen Society on "ThePhysical Factors Underlying the Use ofRadium and Radium Emanation."Professor Edgar Goodspeed, of the Department of Biblical and Patristic Greek,gave the presidential address at the recentmeeting in New York of the Society ofBiblical Literature and Exegesis, the subject of his address being "The Origin ofActs."NOTES 13TPresident Judson to Recent GraduatesPresident Judson, in his charge to thegraduates at the recent Convocation, said:"We hear much of rights but too little ofthe correlative obligations. Remember thatevery right whether in accordance with thelaw of the land, or of those still more fundamental moral laws which are vital to allpolitical and social structure, carries with ita duty which the individual owes society,quite as much as society owes respect ofindividual rights. With each new right andprivilege, therefore, you at once come underthe obligation of a new duty."I charge you to remember that as educated men and women you owe an especialduty to our country, not only if need be togive your lives to it in time of battle, butto guard its fabric from destruction at thehands of those whose ignorance or fanaticism makes them enemies within the gates.The constitution of our land must be defended from all hostile action. It changesshould be permitted only under the orderlyforms of law. Obedience to law is the firstduty of a citizen of a free state, and ouralumni should always be an embattled hostin allegiance to this duty."Institute for Church WorkersNearly three hundred persons have registered in the new Institute for Church Workers at the University of Chicago. ManyChicago churches are represented by largedelegations. Practical courses in Bible-study, religious education, church organization, and recreational activities are givenevery Monday evening during the WinterQuarter, all sessions to be held in EmmonsBlaine Hall.The aim of the Institute is to offer opportunity for training in church efficiency.Each evening is divided into three periods,the first for Bible study to be conducted byDean Shailer Mathews, Dr. J. M. P. Smith,and Dr. Shirley J. Case; the second for specialized groups in courses on Sunday-schoolmethods, "scouting," as applied to thechurch, Bible-story telling, the church andthe community, and the religious development of the child; and the third for participation in play and game exercises, in whichnon-equipment games and recreational programs will be illustrated by specialists.Joseph Manson Artman, Director of Vocational Training, i-s in general charge of thework.

He waseducated at Dansville Academy, New York,and at Clinton Liberal Institute, New York.He then came to Chicago, and, at the age of19, entered the employ of Hibbard & Co..hardware merchants. His rise in this field of merchandising was rapid, his abilities being a large factor in the growth of that firm.On January 1, 1882, the business was incorporated as Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett &Co., and Mr. Bartlett was made its secretary. The business continued to grow, untilthe firm is today oneof the largest hardware firms in theworld. Mr. Bartlettis now the chairmanof its board of directors.His business interests, however, havebeen widely extended. He is adirector of the FirstNational Bank andof the NorthernTrust Company, ofChicago, and is alsoa director in theLiverpool and London and Globe Insurance Company.Educational, cultural and charitablefields have alwaysengaged his attention. In addition toserving as a trusteeof the University,Mr. Bartlett is atrustee of BeloitCollege, Wisconsin,and has been a mem-of the Chicago Boardof Education.

Since 1900 Harold Fowler McCormick has been a most valued memberof that "able, united body of men."Mr. McCormick was born in Chicago,May 2, 1872, the son of Cyrus Hall andNettie (Fowler) Mc-*"Cormick. His fatherwas the inventor ofthe world - famousreaping machine.After receiving theusual preparatoryeducation, HaroldMcCormick attended PrincetonUniversity where hewas graduated A.B.in 1895. On November 26, in the yearof his graduation, hemarried EdithRockefeller, daughter of John D.Rockefeller, thefounder of The University of Chicago.M r. McCormickentered upon a business career in connection with theMcCormick Harvesting Machine Co.,of which his elderbrother, Cyrus Hall,had been presidentfrom the time of hisfather's death i n1884. In 1902 theInternational Harvester Company wasorganizedandHarold McCormick was made vice-president of the new organization, of which heis now the acting president. For the tenyears, 1906-1916, he also served as treasurerof that company. Largely due to the constructive energies, vigor and foresight ofsuch men as Harold McCormick, the International Harvester Company has developedinto a world-wide- organization rendering,what its name truly implies, an international service. Mr. McCbrmick's businessattention is also engaged as a trustee ofthe Chicago Exchange Building Co.The members of the McCormick familyhave for years been widely noted for theirsociological, civic and philanthropic activities, as well as for their constant assistanceHarold F. McCormickin the development of the cultural andartistic life of Chicago. In such activitiesHarold McCormick has been a leader. Asa trustee of the McCormick TheologicalSeminary, an institution of national distinction and importance, he has contributedmuch to the best in religious training andinfluence. Alert and eager to assist in thebetterment of industrial matters, he is engaged in important constructive work withreference to the amelioration of labor conditions. As an indication of his roundedcharacter and of his desire to encourageengineering and mechanical progress, he isprominent in furthering the development of aviation.As a member of theChicago, University,Chicago Athletic,Onwentsia andother clubs, he hasbeen a factor in thesocial life of thecommunity. In artistic matters hismost notable contribution, perhaps, isthe support he hasgiven toward organizing and maintaining Grand Operain Chicago. Thecultural influence ofthis successful enterprise has beenfelt not only in Chicago, but throughout the MiddleWest.It is to be expected that such aman would take interest in matterspertaining to highereducation. HaroldF. McCormick hasdone so, and hisnineteen years ofservice as a Trusteeof The University of Chicago have beenrendered in keeping with such an interest.He is at present a member of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds. He has,too, generously contributed to the institution, donating $10,000 at the time fundswere raised for the erection of the groupof buildings known as the Tower group;his donation made possible, in connectiontherewith, the construction of the Commons Cafe; he gave over $10,000 to providethe racquet courts in the Grand Stand.Large institutions are, after all, but theexpression of large men; and Harold F. •McCormick must always be numberedamong those large men whose interest andhelp have made, and continue to develop.The University of Chicago.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Letter BoxThank YouDepartment of EnglishUniversity of ColoradoBoulder, ColoradoDear Editor:I can't resist saying that the Magazineseems to me quite wonderful in its successin making even an old graduate student —proverbially unsusceptible — feel a real interest in the University, even undergraduatedoings.

La Salle Street,Chicago, Illinois.My dear Brown:I have yours of January 8th relative tothe Alumni Fund, asking various membersto take out a life membership. I have previously taken out a sustaining membership.A few days ago I wrote to the AlumniCouncil regarding the advisability of theAlumni Association putting on the walls ofthe chapel, which the University is to erectin memory of John D. Rockefeller, the letter of gift from Mr. Rockefeller dated December 13, 1910. I remember at the timethe letter appeared in the papers I felt thatit was extremely appropriate and thoughtat that time that if the Alumni Associationgot in a position to do so, I would suggestthe advisability of having the letter put ona tablet and placed on the walls of thechapel. I have never suggested the matterbecause of the Association not being in aposition to do it. The matter is differentnow and I feel that it would be an extremelyappropriate thing to do.I believe you are President of the class of'97. Are you doing anything toward a classfund? You will recall that in Harvard eachclass has its 25th reunion and gives to theUniversity the class fund. So far as I knowno class in Chicago has done this. Ourreunion would be 1922. Would it not be well to have a committee of the class appointed in Chicago and begin now to prepare for that reunion, and likewise considerthe advisibility of raising funds. After thefund is raised, the class might decide whatto do with it — that is, whether to give it tothe University without restriction or give itfor a scholarship, or give it to the AlumniAssociation.I sincerely hope that something may bedone by way of beginning of our reunion,even if nothing is done by way of a classfund.Awaiting the courtesy of your reaction, Iremain,Very truly yours,Burt Brown Barker.January 17, 1920.Burt Brown Barker, Esq.,120 Broadway,New York City.Dear Burt:In reply to your good letter of January14. I knew that you would come through insome good way on the Alumni Fund, butyour name was on my list so I let the le .-ter go.Your suggestion concerning the tablet f jrthe chapel seems a very apt one. As thishas already gone to the Council it shouldreceive good attention.What can be done by the Class of 1987,as a class, I am not quite sure. An attempthas been made through the organization of"The Shantys" to tie together the classes ofthe earlier years up to 1900 in order to havean aggressive unit. This developmentseemed a popular one and it looks now asthough each year the "Shanty" would beused as a center, around which to form interesting meetings on Alumni day. I havegiven so much time to the general workand am so tied up with other affairs, that Ido not see how I can do anything personallyto bring about a reunion for the class, although I am heartily in for anything thatcan be done along this line. Why don't youdrop in and let us talk the thing over sometime when you are in Chicago in the nearfuture? Certainly a committee could befound which would undertake the work andput it through.With best wishes, 1 amSincerely yours,Scott Brown.FOLLOWING THE WAR 141•|»— M— .«■— -»_rr— -aa— hi-— - is— ■■•—»—«,—«•— an— oh DM— an —in hh— -nn— an nn hh an im ii.i in bb— -hb bb ho— b*§«I Europe Following the War jj By Maurice Mandeville , '02 ■agaa aa na aa aa aa— aa— aa— aa aa aa aa aa aa aa-_M llf un nu nH „„ un m M m nn „ Ba_*ajaAnyone going to Europe this last summer, as a civilian intending to travel forpleasure, was cruelly disappointed. Therewas a certain pleasure in it — that of unusual conditions and novel experiences,mostly hardships — but such pleasures arechiefly of retrospect.Before sailing I had a few minutes' con-vacations of the people I went to see, thetache at London, then in Washington onbusiness. He explained some of the difficulties to be met. He told of a party ofthree traveling about the British Isles, incharge of a gentleman connected with oneof the well, known express companies, aman as thoroughly conversant with travelconditions and how to meet them as is anylone in the United Kingdom. This partyhad no international boundary to cross, didnot even leave the British Isles. They wereout 125 days, if I remember correctly, andcalculated when they returned to headquarters that they had been able to work 68out of the 125 days.I made no effort to calculate the proportion of my time spent in finding accommodations and getting vises from the authorities, but it was fully as great as in thecase mentioned above. A third great wastewas holidays. There were public holidaysevery week, frequently more than one daya week. Between them and the personalvacations of th epeople I went to see, thetime which could be devoted to businesswas very small.No amount of warning could prepare onefor the actual conditions, but experienceeventually developed this general plan: Always get into a new point in the early morning, whether you had a hotel reservation ornot. Make it your first business to find aplace to sleep. By four or five in the afternoon, if you had good luck, a bed wouldbe found which might be available for useby 10 or 11 o'clock that night. Not onlywere bathrooms and halls turned into sleeping quarters, but frequently the beds themselves were used in shifts.Assured of a bed, the next duty was tomake arrangements to leave town. Notuntil that had been done, could one goabout one's business.After the armistice these things improved,and I know the hardships of this kind I hadto meet were not so great as others encountered during hostilities, but they were badenough.On more than one occasion I stood inline five or six hours without food, with no way of leaving the line unless I surrendered my place and started all over againwhen I came back.That waiting, coupled with the uncertainty of whether or not you were going toget your vise after you reached the presenceof the august consul was nerve racking.Generally people accepted it good humor-edly, but occasionally the nerves were notequal to the strain.While standing in such a line in Holland,a gentleman next to me related rather anunusual experience he had in 1917. He wasa Dutch citizen; had gone to Denmark viaGermany on business; had had his papersproperly vise for return, but when thetime came, found that the Dutch frontierhad been closed, owing to some necessarysecrecy in German military operations.Having a friend connected with the Dutchlegation at Stockholm, he crossed over intoSweden in order to take a boat at Gothen-berg, for Amsterdam. The connection wasa close one, but his friend had his papersready for him and he got his boat in goodshape. On reaching Amsterdam, however,he found that, owing to a technical omission, the papers were not in form to admithim into Holland via that port. Argumentwas useless; there was nothing to do butreturn on the vessel that brought him. AtGothenberg he found that, while his paperspermitted his leaving Sweden, they did notprovide for return there and he couldn'tland. The poor fellow made seven tripsfrom Gothenberg to Amsterdam and back,unable to get off at either port, before hisfriends at home could straighten the matterout with the Dutch government and get theproper authority for him to land.The fact that the peace conference wassitting at Paris, and that France was on theitinerary anyway, induced me to take shipto Havre rather than to an English port.I had the pleasure of being at Joinvillethe day the Pershing stadium was turnedover to the French government, and at Versailles the day of the final signing of thetreaty with Germany, June 28th. The opening of the stadium was an interesting event.It is a tremendous amphitheatre, built ofreinforced concrete," suitable for footballand baseball, but particularly designed forOlympic games and what we call trackmeets. It was inspiring to see the athletesfrom all over the world (that is, the ententeworld) filing by to the tune of "Sombre etMeuse." There were Greeks, Siamese, Algerians, toreadors from Portugal andTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEswarthy limbed sons of the desert from theArabian kingdom of Hadjes. Naturally, theFrench and Americans were the most numerous, and both made a fine showing.The doings at Versailles were a disappointment. Without admittance to the chateau and to the Salle des Glaces, one didn'tsee much. Competition for tickets to thisroom was very keen. Close relationshipto an official connected with the peace conference was essential to getting one.As I stepped from the train at 3 o'clock,the first gun announced that the final namehad been affixed to the treaty that was toend the war.The courtyard of the chateau was crowded, but not so much so as I had expected.There was very little military display. Thegreat fountains played and the park wasbeautiful, as it always is, but the popularcelebration was at Paris and riot at Versailles.An acquaintance, a colonel high up on thestaff of the American commission, told meof his experience that afternoon. It was sotypical of American spirit and Americanbluff that I think it well worth repeating.He had secured two tickets to the chateau,but not to the Salle des Glaces, and droveout in a cab with a friend. On the way theymet a young American, evidently a commercial traveler, who asked to join them.They explained to him that they had buttwo tickets to the chateau, that he waswelcome to ride with them as far as thegates of the Palace, but that at that pointhe would have to excuse them. He agreed,and they drove together to the gate. Tenminutes after they got inside who shouldcome along but their erstwhile acquaintance,as chipper as could be, and absolutely unconcerned about tickets and authorities. Hehad torn the cover from a Pall Mall cigarette box, and had put this gold and redthing emblazoned with the English Armsbetween the covers of his pocket memorandum case. On reaching the door he coollyturned back the cover of the portfolio exposing the gold arms of the red field. Thevalet bowed very low and in he went. Thelast seen of the chap he was walkingthrough the doors of the Salle des Glacesusing the same improvised credentials.At first glance Paris appeared much morenormal than could have been expected.With certain exceptions the people seemedto have all the necessities of life. The Parisians appeared happy and always ready tocelebrate any national or international occasion that came up. In fact, celebratingseemed to be one of their chief occupations. But, under the surface, industrialconditions were not good and today theyare no better, as is evidenced by the rapidlyfalling value of the franc. It is hard forseven million men who for four years havehad food and clothes and some kind of shelter furnished them by their governmentto suddenly throw those habits aside andstart industrial work. Human inertia willkeep a certain percentage of them fromworking, and, even for the willing ones, thereadjustment necessary to find them productive employment is stupendous.By habit we have come to consider therate of exchange on foreign money a matter for bankers and financiers to concernthemselves over. But to the European ithas come to be such a governing factor inthe cost of his staple supplies that themovement of it is of absorbing interest toevery one. Ask the ordinary man on thestreet in Afnerica what the day's rate ofexchange is on the pound or franc or lireand he will look at you in amazement. Butif you go out on the Boulevard in Parisand ask the first man that you meet howmany francs it would take that day to buy$100, the chances are pretty good that hewill be able to tell you the correct figurewithout a moment's hesitation.When goods are in surplus the price youcan get for that surplus determines the selling value of the whole commodity, and whenthere is a shortage the price that has tobe paid for the balance necessary to makeup that shortage determines the cost of thewhole. Europe has to buy, and, having insufficient exports with which to pay the bill,sees her money getting cheaper and cheaperand the cost of the commodities goinghigher and higher. The man in the streetthinks we charge too much for our dollar.He doesn't realize that we, as individualsor as a country, have nothing at all to dowith it. There are more francs and liresand marks offered for sale than there arebuyers to take them. Consequently, theyare offered in ever increasing quantities andat advancing rates for the precious dollarthat will buy them food and cotton and iron.In normal times it takes 520 francs to buy$100. Today it takes 1125.A great deal has been said of the changeafter the armistice, in the attitude of theFrench people toward our boys. There undoubtedly was a change, due to perfectlynatural causes, which, while temporary,were very real. The good will of theFrench people will be ours permanently.They appreciate what we were able to do,and, above all, the fact that our resourceswere offered at a time that turned the tideof the war against their enemy.But, in a personal, individual way, thingsbegan to change after the armistice. Workslackeneud and leave was easy to get. Sofar as my observation went, and this isbacked by information I got from manyothers who had been there continuously,from the armistice on, and in an ever-increasing degree, it was, for our militaryforces and our semi-military organizations(Continued on page 154)OF EDUCATION— HOME ECONOMICS 143||t -*IB— -il— *MI-«Mi •.— OH<^Ofl<^-«— BO— «■•— OI>^fta— •BH'^OH— —|i.^i|.— •oa-— BO— 10— OB— OB— BR— -Hfl*^0B— BO— BO— -OB— -BB— *BH— BB— *-fltfl| School of Education} Department of Home Economicsj Graduate WorkDirector and Head Professor of the Schoolof EducationAnnual "Chicago" Dinner of FormerSchool of Education Students,at ClevelandThe University of Chicago Dinner which isheld each year in connection with the meetingof the Department of Superintendence of theNational Education Association will be heldon February 24 at the Statler Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. This annual gathering of formerstudents and alumni of the University has become increasingly popular during recent years.A program of unusual interest is being prepared, and members of the Faculty will discuss recent developments in the Universityand progressive changes in the Department ofEducation. Miss Alice Temple will be one ofthe speakers, and prominent alumni of theUniversity will discuss topics of special interest to all former students. Mr. Matthew Willing, who received his Masters degree in 1916,is arranging a series of musical numbers forthe evening program. Among the developments in the Department of Home Economics during the lastfew years has been the expansion of thegraduate work. In the autumn quarter,1919, twenty per cent of the students wereregistered in the graduate schools — a proportion comparing very favorably with theuniversity departments much older in advanced work. Most of these students areteachers of some experience eager to keepabreast of recent developments and to prepare themselves for more respbnsible posi-tions. The oppbrtunity thus afforded thedepartment to train leaders in home economics is very stimulating. The department has two fellows, Marie Dye, whoholds the Bachelor's and Master's degreesfrom the University of Chicago and hashad two years' experience teaching chemistry and home economics, and MinniePhillips, a graduate of the University ofIllinois with training as a dietitian in theNew Haven Hospital and the Iowa StateUniversity Hospital. Both these students,as it happens, are specializing in nutritionand are doing part of their research withthe new Benedict portable respiration apparatus which supplies a simpler methodthan we have ever had before for measuringenergy requirement and its variations withdifferent conditions. Other students in thissame side of home economics are workingon problems of undernutrition among children, on vitamine stability, on various problems in experimental cooking. The fellowships are offered again for next year.Another field of graduate work, onewhich has expanded particularly during thepast year, is that of home economics education. A group under the leadership ofMiss Mabel Trilling, assistant professor ofhome economics, with the collaborationof Dr. Rugg, formerly of the Department ofEducation, has prepared for publication amonograph on Home Economics Education inAmerican Schools. The group has made asurvey of what is taught in home economicsin elementary and secondary schools, determining the textbooks used by a questionnaire sent to 300 cities distributed inall parts of the country. Returns were received from 167 cities in 41 states. Theyshow that though a total of 267 differentbooks are employed, 9 books in food and10 in clothing are the chief texts in 95%of the school systems, and that thereforethose 19 books may be taken as determining the content of home economics thecountry over.

The monograph also includes the Williams and Knapp scales formeasuring skill in machine sewing, and theBowman and Trilling informational andreasoning tests.The institutional section of the department also has numerous graduate students.They are either women of managerial experience who wish further training, or teachers who have decided to go into this fastdeveloping business field for the home economics trained woman. As in teaching, thedemand far exceeds the supply.Of the five recipients of the Master's degree in home economics in 1919, one, LydiaJ. Roberts, was already a member of ourfaculty; and two, Leona F. Bowman andSybil Woodruff, have become members thisyear. Mary Hahn has gone as instructorto the University of Tennessee, and Marietta Eichelberger to the University of Kentucky.Practice HouseParallel with the expansion of graduatework, the under-graduate, it is believed, isdeveloping wholesomely. The new practicehouse, which it is hoped will be ready bythis summer quarter, is one manifestationof its growth. Here eight home economicsstudents, mostly seniors, will live for aquarter with an instructor, getting actualpractice in the care and management of ahome, financial and otherwise, and so prepare themselves to be more effective teachers of home management. A model kitchenwill be installed, arranged, and equipped,with the aim of making the worker thereinas efficient as possible. The furnishing ofthe house will be done under the directionof Miss Mildred Talbot, instructor in homeeconomics, and will be used as problems inher classes in house decoration.Demonstration Child Health SchoolThe demonstration child health school,open for the first time this coming summer,is primarily for the purpose of training thehome economics students in methods ofconducting nutrition classes for children.Observation courses will be held also forelementary- and high-school teachers, social workers, and in general any studentinterested in the problem of malnutritionamong children. There will be a group ofunderweight children in the charge of anelementary-school teacher, and it is withthese directly that the advanced studentswill work. Miss Roberts, of our faculty,will be director of this school, and Dr.Mendenhall, of the Children's Bureau, andDr. Hoffmann, of Rush Medical College,will serve as medical advisers. It is hopedthrough this training to make a distinctcontribution to this important line of public health home economics work.The school is a development of work thatOF EDUCATION— HOME ECONOMICS 115has been carried on in the advanced dietaries courses by Miss Roberts for twoyears past. Under her direction the students in Field Work in Dietaries inaugurated the nutrition clinic for children at theCentral Free Dispensary of Rush MedicalCollege, work which has since been carriedon by Anna Boiler, '17. They also developed the nutrition classes of the Chicago Infant Welfare Society, for childrenof pre-school age, where Pearl Hendersonand Edna Mohr, both of '19, are nowworking as dietitians. It is encouragingto find how many alumnae of the department report that they are attacking theproblem of undernutrition in their ownschools and classes.The department is to have further workin child care this coming summer. Dr.Dorothy Reed Mendenhall, of the UnitedStates Children's Bureau, a mother herselfand a child specialist of note, author ofnumerous Children's Bureau pamphlets andespecially of the "Outline of Courses onChild Care," is to give two courses, one on maternity and infancy, and the other onthe older child. Observations will of coursebe made in the Child Health School.Textile StandardizationOther members of the faculty and student body are working with a committeeof the American Home Economics Association on the question of textile standardization. Miss Trilling is chairman of theTextile Section of the American Home Economics Association and a member of thecommittee on standardization. In thespring quarter an advanced course in textiles is offered by Miss Elizabeth Weirick,formerly of Pratt Institute, now in chargeof the textile laboratory of Sears, Roebuck& Company.The Older CoursesThe old courses continue in the midst ofthe new ones — the elementary and experimental cooking, the latter of course enriched by the vastly increased fund ofexact information of recent years; the begin-EAGLE "MIKADO" PENCIL No. 174IPWiRegular Length, 7 inchesFor Sale at your Dealer.

She is now on leave ofabsence for the autumn and winter quarters,working under the United States Children'sBureau, making a study of undernutritionamong children in a rural neighborhood in Kentucky. Alta Nelson, '19, andElla Ross are assisting her. All write letters full of belief in the importance of theirwork and of the intense need of knowledgeof food and home management among theirpeople. Miss Roberts' bulletin, What Is Malnutrition, was brought out last year as Publication No. 59, of the Children's Bureau.Miss Blunt and Miss Trilling attendedthe meeting of the American Home Economics Association in Blue Ridge, NorthCarolina, last June, Miss Blunt being chairman of the Science Section of the Association and Miss Trilling of the TextileSection. Miss Trilling is also chairman ofthe committee on Educational Research inHome Economics of that association and ofthe committee on Reconstruction of HomeEconomics in the Central Association ofScience and Mathematics teachers.Members of the institutional faculty installed the new lunch room equipped toserve 500 employes in the Dow ChemicalWorks, Midland, Michigan.Miss Sybil Woodruff last summer was amember of the home economics faculty atPeabody College for Teachers, Nashville,Tennessee.New members of the faculty this yearinclude Miss Florence King, a graduate ofthe University of Illinois and a formermember of the faculty of the Richmond,Indiana, High School, and of Indiana University. She is giving the courses in methods of teaching food and household management.Miss Leona F.

Lyman, chairman of theAuditing Committee, certified that the treasurer's report for the year October 1, 1918,to September 31, 1919, presented at the lastCouncil meeting, was correct, and that thebooks of the Council are correct and wellkept. ■*Several standing committees made informal reports. The report of Harold H.Swift, chairman of the Clubs Committee,was of particular interest. It showed that19 club meetings had been held during thelast three months, 13 at places where clubswere revived and 7 at cities where newclubs were established. Dean NathanielButler had made 14 special trips to clubmeetings, Dean Shailer Mathews and DeanJames Weber Linn one each. In addition,Dean Mathews, Dean Angell, Dean Small,Dr. Judd and Professor Robertson had inci-dently attended meetings. Six meetings areplanned to be held during the comingmonths. The Council was greatly pleasedat the energetic way Mr. Swift had beencarrying on this work.A formal petition for admission to representation on the Alumni Council was presented by the new School of EducationAlumni Association, and unanimously accepted.

Although no complete,nation-wide, intensive campaign had beenconducted, such, for instance, as are beingconducted by some other alumni bodies, andalthough our campaign was very brief, thereport showed over 430 subscribers with atotal of $67,320. It was estimated that thisamount would shortly be increased to $100,-000. While there has been no solicitationfor payments, thus far over $20,000 has beenpaid in. A follow-up campaign will probably be conducted in March, after necessarydetails have been completed. As to administration of the Fund and expenditures,the chair appointed a special committee tostudy this matter and to present a writtenreport thereon at a special meeting of theCouncil to be held before the next quarterlymeeting in April. The members of thiscommittee are as follows: Leo F. Wormser,chairman; Mrs. Ethel Kawin Bachrach,Hargrave A. Long, Dr. Herbert E. Slaught,and Harold H.

From oneend of France to the other there were holidays and sight seeing ad infinitum. Putyourself in the Frenchman's place. Afterall, it was his country, not ours. Many ofour boys considered themselves the saviorsof European civilization and didn't hesitateto say so. They came back from the frontwith their pockets full of money and thekind of money that commanded a big premium. They went into the cafes with acertain unmistakable air of proprietorship,lit a good cigar, which a Frenchman couldhardly get at any price and took a goodlump of sugar out of their pockets fortheir coffee, which the Frenchman couldn'tget at all. Then there were chocolates andlemon drops for the girls and the children,bought at the commissary more cheaplythan we could buy them at home, while theFrenchman at the next table envied andwondered.The thing began to work on their nerves,and you can't blame them. No wonder theywere almost as glad to see us go as theyhad been to see us come. But don't everdoubt in the underlying good will and gratitude of the French nation. Their sacrificewas infinitely greater than ours and willbe for years to come. They are grateful as only a people can be grateful who havesacrificed and suffered to the limit to keeptheir freedom.Adolphus C.

And thirty percent will be earning nomore than had they never been to college.Why ? What separates the successful ten percentfrom the other ninety?The Alexander Hamilton Institute knows something about the answer to that question; for in thepast ten years it has enrolled more than 1 10,000progressive men in its Modern Business Course andService.And more thanZ5°lo were college graduatesTHE DIFFERENCE between large success inbusiness and mediocre success is not chiefly adifference in native ability nor in the willingness towork.It consists usually in training, and in self-confidence which specific practical training gives.Here is a quotation from the letter of a collegeman, typical of many which the Institute hasreceived :"You may be interested in knowing that two anda half months' study of your Course has given memore self-confidence than the time spent in theUniversity of only seven years ago.To that study of the Course and the self-confidencewhich it bred I am directly indebted for myrecognition and promotion in this bank."110,000 self-confident menNO COLLEGE man expects his arts course tofit him to practice medicine or law. He realizes that special training is necessary for thoseprofessions.Modern business, also, deserves to be thought ofas a profession.It has as many departments as the human bodyhas organs. A man may know selling and beutterly ignorant of costs and accounting. He maybe able to organize an office and know nothing ofcorporation finance. He may be an engineer andadvertising and merchandising may be Greek to him. The business of the Alexander Hamilton Instituteis to give men quickly and systematically a workingknowledge of all these departments.That its training is thoroly practical is proved bythe experience of 1 10,000 men who with its helphave gained mastery of business and self-confidence;and by the character and standing ofThe men behind the InstituteTHE highest business and educational authority is represented in the Institute's AdvisoryCouncil. That Council consists of: Frank A. Van-derlip, the financier; General Coleman duPont, thewell known business executive; John Hays Hammond, the eminent engineer; Jeremiah W. Jenks, thestatistician and economist; and Joseph French Johnson, Dean of the New York University School ofCommerce.Surely a training so directed, a training which hasmeant so much to 1 10,000 other men is worth anevening of your investigation. It is worth at leastthe little effort required toSend for "Forging Aheadin Business"EVERY man who wants to cut short the yearsof routine progress; every man who is ambitiousto increase his mastery of business and his self-confidence in business, should add this 1 1 6-page bookto his library.

ChamberlinHead of the Department of Geology, TheUniversity of Chicago — (The University of Chicago Press)In this book there are woven together thestory of a research, the steps and the methods of the inquiry, and the results so far asnow reached. The inquiry started two decadesago in a study of the glacial problem; it ledthrough the enigmas of earlier climaticstates to grave doubts as to the verity of aonce molten globe and the great hot atmospheres supposed to envelop it. This ledthe inquiry into the field of cosmogonywhere the main burden of the research cameto lie. The book sets forth the disclosuresthat led to the rejection, one after another,of the older views of the origin of ourplanet, the futile attempts then made toemend these or to build others upon the same foundations, the final rejection of allthese, and the construction of a radicallynew view based on a new dynamic foundation. The later chapters of the book treat ofthe early stages of the earth and the way itsleading processes took their start from theircosmogonic antecedents, these being held tobe essential parts of the genesis of theplanet. The beginning of the inquiry is setforth in the Introduction; the successivechapters are entitled: The Gaseous Theoryof Earth-Genesis in the Light of the KineticTheory of Gases; Vestiges of CosmogonicStates and Their Significance; The DecisiveTestimony of Certain Vestiges of the SolarSystem; Futile Efforts; The ForbiddenField; Dynamic Encounter by Close Approach; The Evolution of the Solar NebulaInto the Planetary System: The JuvenileShaping of the Earth; Inner Reorganization of the Juvenile Earth; Higher Organization in the Great Contact Horizons.As implied in these chapter titles, thefundamental mode of inquiry is naturalistic,and is an attempt to detect the vestiges ofpast action in the status of present planetaryongoings and to interpret these as well asmay be.and at the Chamberlin Hotel,"l Old Point Comfort, Va.oA fact:At the Chamberlain, as at 6cores of otherplaces where one would expect only fancy,straight Turkish cigarettes' to sell, Fatima isthe leader.

Thesteam locomotive, marvelous as it isafter a century ofdevelopment, cannot meet all of the present demandsfor transportation facilities. Itselectric rival has proved to be farsuperior.On the mountain divisions of theChicago, Milwaukee & St. PaulRailway— the world's greatest electrification—giant electric locomotives today lift an ever increasingfreight tonnage over the mile-highRockies and also make travelingclean and comfortable. They utilizethe abundant energy of distantwaterfalls and then, by returningsome of this power to the trolley,safely brake the trains on descending grades. And their capabilitiesare not impaired by excessivelycold weather when the steam engineis frozen and helpless. Electricity is the power whichdrives the trains of New YorkCity's subway and elevated systems. It operates the locks andtows the ships through the PanamaCanal. It propels the Navy's latest super-dreadnaught, the NewMexico. Electric mine locomotiveshave replaced the slow-movingmule and the electric automobilehas also come to do an importantservice. Such achievements weremade possible by the extensiveresearch and manufacturing activities of the General ElectricCompany,Electricity has become the universal motive power. It has contributed efficiency and comfort toevery form oi transportation serviceand in this evolution General Electric apparatus has played a largepart— from mighty electric locomotives to the tiny lamp for the automobile.General OfficeSchenectady; NY Sales Offices inall large citiesTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEDynamite LineWEIfCULESPOWDERS ^HE string of low, heavily barricadedbuildings, widely separated but linkedtogether by a narrow tramway, is calledthe dynamite line. On ten such lines the HerculesPowder Co. turns out over 50,000,000 pounds ofdynamite in an average year.The absence of noise and bustle, of whirring wheelsand clanking steel, makes a striking contrast to theusual accompaniment of manufacturing production ona large scale. In little rubber-tired buggies the nitroglycerin is delivered to the mixing house just as it isneeded, and with equal precision and dispatch theother ingredients arrive via the tram line. From herethe dynamite is forwarded in bulk and passes from onesmall building to another until the last process is complete and the finished product reaches the storagemagazines.******A spark, a sputtering fuse, and the energy stored inthese little cartridges of dynamite springs forth with amighty roar to do our bidding, whether it be to remove a mountain or a stump ; to provide copper forour pennies or for our miles of electric wires, steel forour pen points or for our railroads; to mine coal for ourfactories and hearth fires or jewels for our adornment.The power supplied to our industries by the makers ofexplosives, these deft and careful workers on the dynamite line, will produce enough materials to build a cityevery day.HERCULES POWDER^ CO.ChicagoPittsburg.
