But its revolutions still requirea considerable expenditure of energy on thepart of a small group. Their efforts lastyear were amply rewarded by the huge andhappy group that came together. This yearthey expect yet larger numbers. Everybody is back from France and Germany atlast; and the war, though officially not yetover, has retired decidedly into the background of our consciousness. Whateversuggestions for a final memorial to oursoldiers are finally selected by our WarMemorial Committee will be, however,presented to us in June, and our memoriesof the good men returned and never to return will be made more glowing. Onehopes that this year a special effort will bemade to bring back many of those whoare not habituated to reunion. So muchmore has been done this year than beforein the strengthening of alumni clubs allover the country, that it seems a particularly good time to urge on all the clubs thedesirability of having a large representation here in June. The solidity and splendor of the quadrangles on a really goldenJune day are something that the alumnican not afford not to revive in their recollections. Come you back, you former students, come you back to the Midway andview again the finest college group, instone and in flesh and blood, the countryhas to offer. |r-g-|, n — j— tt itoThe decisions to send the baseball team toJapan this summer, and to permit the basket-ball team to playPennsylvania Pennsylvania for theand Japan national intercollegiatechampion ship havecome suddenly on the university, but seem to be generally approved. The Pennsylvania challenge was received before the result of the Minnesota game was known. Itis historically interesting in view of the factthat the only previous national collegiatebasketball championship was fought out between the same teams, thirteen years ago,Chicago winning two straight. Dr. J. E.Raycroft, '96, now head of the departmentof physical culture at Princeton, but thencoach of the Chicago team, saw the Minnesota game March 6, and having also seenPennsylvania twice in action, predicts ahard, close fight. The first game will beplayed at Chicago March 20, the second atPhiladelphia March 24, the third, if necessary, March 27, Dr. Raycroft having offeredthe Princeton floor as a neutral spot. Withthe basketball championship out of theway, the coach and four, possibly five, members of the squad will rapidly turn theirthoughts to the Orient. Twelve playerswill probably go to Japan, includingHinkle, Crisler, Vollmer, and probablyHalladay and Curtis, the exact quintetwhich started the game against MinnesotaMarch 6. Mr. Page will not go, as he begins his duties with Butler College onApril 1. The chaperon of the trip hasnot been announced. In 1910 Prof. GilbertBliss escorted the group, and in 1915 Prof.Chester Wright.The other day a young man came byspecial appointment to consult one of thedeans of the UniversityAre Undergrad- of Chicago on the sub-uates Wanted? ject of the choice of acollege. He was froma neighboring preparatory school, and afirst-rate young fellow. After he had presented the three colleges he had in mindfor consideration, and each had been goneover in detail, the dean not unnaturally in-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEquired, "What's the matter, by the way,with the University of Chicago?" And theyoung man replied, "Oh, everybody saysChicago doesn't want undergraduates." Isaid something on this topic in a recentissue of the magazine, but having had thisconcrete instance presented to me, I cannotrefrain from saying more. It is the absolute duty of every aluminus, man or woman,to combat and try to dissipate this idea.Certain of our neighbors are not altogetherhesitant about spreading it. It has, ofcourse, no foundation whatever in fact.Chicago not only wants undergraduates, butgives them the most elaborate and specialconsideration. It provides, within its field,a far greater variety of courses than anyother institution in these parts. It looksafter the health of its undergraduates moreclosely than any other institution of itssize I know. In the Reynolds Club andIda Noyes Hall it gives them social advantages that nothing anywhere in the countrycan compare with. It trains them athletically so well that with its small numberto draw from, it continues year after yearin the very front of western intercollegiatecompetition. It demands of its enteringfreshmen a preparatory school standardslightly higher than is required anywhereelse in the west, but the boy or girl whocan show this it welcomes with enthusiasm, treats with consideration, and graduates with training. It is time to squelchthis anti-Chicago undergraduate propo-ganda. When you hear it anywhere, stepon it. ONLYONCEAYEARand this yearwe aimto make itthe bestReunionwe haveever held.Be here!The dramatic club has just given withsuccess that delightful melodrama, "The13th Chair." There wasAestheticism or some sharp correspon-the Box-Office dence in the Maroonover the question ofthe idealism of the performance. Ourdramatic club, some students ably contended, should rise to its opportunities, notsink to commercialism. That rheumatic oldlady, the Chicago Evening Post, held up aneditorial finger and remarked "fie, fie!" tothe club. The alumni should not be worried.The policy of the club is to present, as oftenas possible, plays, mostly short, whicheither are written for it, or which it thinkshas significance or beauty or both. Butoccasionally in order to do this it has toreplenish its exchequer. Then it gives aplay which will "draw." "The 13th Chair"was presented with this intention. Incidentally, however, in the characterizationof Rosalie La Grange by Miss ElizabethBrown, it showed the finest student-actingI have seen here since the days of VidaSutton.

The University AlumniFund Association offered the means to thesolution ready to hand. An agencythrough which the alumni had for nearlythree decades tangibly expressed theirYale loyalty provided the actual machinerywhich similar institutions lacked."When additional University income hasbeen needed to meet extraordinary demands growing out of the war, or relatedcauses, this Yale loyalty expressed throughthe Alumni Fund has never failed. TheYale man who thinks it through considersit a privilege in the present emergency tohelp in putting Yale University ahead ofother American universities in the matterof adopting a salary scale commensuratewith the stubborn demands of the highcost of living." — Yale Alumni Weekly.At Cornell"The Red Cross campaigns, which maypossibly offer a closer analogy to the endowment campaigns, were likewise managed in the heat and passion of the warwhen appeals to sympathy were easy andcompelling. With college and universitycampaigns, however, the case is bound tobe different. They are a new thing. Theremote alumnus, however loyal he mayfeel himself to be, has oftentimes to be'shown,' when it comes to an appeal c,"this kind. Moreover, the vast majority ofalumni are quite unable to make largesubscriptions, many of them having entered unremunerative professions. * * *It is a sacred duty that is laid upon us.In many ways it comes at a highly opportune time; and payments can be spreadover several years if desired.

It was an enthusiastic gatheringand we departed from the customary formof organization to meet local conditions.In the first place we adopted the suggestedconstitution with a few changes and amendments, which I note:In article I. fill blank with word "Connecticut."In article III. fill blank with word "Connecticut."In article IV. after word president insert"two vice-presidents, one from New Havenand one from Hartford:" change secondword of line three to "one."In article V. after "annually" insert"once in New Haven and once in Hartford."In By-law I. seventh line, insert after"and" the word "both."By-Law 8. It shall be the duty of eachvice-president to inform the secretary ofall meetings held by his branch.By-Law 9. The dues shall be one dollarper year; twenty-five percent to be paid tothe Alumni Council of The University ofChicago, twenty-five percent to the statetreasurer; twenty-five percent to the Hartford treasurer and twenty-five percent tqthe New Haven treasurer.By-Law 10. A wife or husband of amember may become an Associate Member.Officers elected:President: F. D. Mabrey, '06, ReddingRidge, Conn.Secy.-Treas.: Florence McCormick, Ph.D. '14, Conn. Agr. Exp.

GWright, '02, 166 Sigourney St., Hartford.You will notice that we have adopted theRed Cross scheme of organization to acertain extent. Connecticut is a very hardstate to go east or west in, but Hartfordand New Haven are so located that theycover most of the towns. For this reasonwe have decided that each of these townsshall have a branch, that shall have frequent meetings, and to which members inthe immediate territory shall be members.In this way we hope to stir up an interestin the Club. You will also notice the financial arrangement. Most of us are teachers or ministers.We want to help a bit and so we havevoted that the Council shall receive twenty-ifive percent of the dues each year. It willnot amount to much, but at the same timein the course of time we shall make arespectable showing.This is but a bare skeleton of the organization, but we hope that the meatwill come in due season. If I can be ofany use let me know. I have the "figurehead" office as you can see, for the realactivity is confined to the two cities mentioned. I shall go twice a year, but it isan all night trip for me to go to eitherplace.President Judson's letter came too late,I am sorry to say. We missed it, but wehad a fine time reviewing the years wespent in Chicago and telling of the various"breaks" we made with various membersof the faculty.Yours very truly,F. D.

In 1893 he was graduatedfrom the Ottawa (Illinois) High School, and soonafter entered the University of Chicago. There hewas prominent in athletic and student activities,acting as General Y. M. C. A. Secretary from 1898-1899, after receiving his degree in 18*8. From 1900-1901 he was Associate Pastor of the Memorial Baptist Church, Oakwood Boulevard, Chicago; in 1901he obtained the degree of Bachelor of Divinity, andthen went to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where lieserved as minister of the Scribner Street BaptistChurch. He was then called to Japan, where, inDuncan Academy and Waseda University, he wasboth teacher and athletic coach. It was to somedegree through Merrifield's influence that the successful baseDall series between Chicago and theUniversities in Japan was effected. He has beenselected to accompany the baseball team that goes toJapan this spring, as faculty representative. In 1907he returned to America to be Director of the BaptistStudents' Guild at the University of Michigan,where he remained until 1911, when he returned tothe University of Chicago to become a member ofthe Divinity School Faculty. His article, we feelsure, will prove of deep interest to the alumni.]The University of Chicago, offers itsSenior and Junior College students somethirty or more courses in the history andliterature of religion. These courses aregiven in the department of Biblical Literature and are designed to give the students apractical understanding of three great erasin the religious development of the race: (1)the Old Testament period; (2) the .NewTestament period; and (3) the Modernperiod, in which the creative principles ofthe first two are seen at work in their laterdevelopments.Most of these courses are given with afull major credit. Others are offered atUniversity College, or Sunday mornings inHaskell, for one-half Mj. and one-quarterMj. credit, respectively. Some of this samework is also offered through the Correspondence Department of the university forfull credit (see circulars of "Religion andEthics," "University College" and "Correspondence-Study Department"). Themore mature students of the Senior College are eligible to certain advanced coursesin the Divinity School. A few graduatestudents also take advantage of this workeach quarter. Thus, an attempt is made toprovide work adapted to the needs of students of various grades and types. Thatthe response has been reasonably hearty,as far as numbers are concerned, is shown by the fact that prior to the war about onehundred students were electing these studieseach quarter. Work is once again assumingnormal proportions now that the studentbody is getting delayed requirements outof the way.In the Old Testament field, such coursesas the following are presented by Dr. Wil-lett: Origin of the Old Testament, OldTestament History (2 Mjs.), GenesisStories, The Religion of the Prophets, ThePsalms, The Rise of Judaism, The Development of Old Testament Literature, andMoral Problems of the Old Testament.In the New Testament field, the studentmay take courses like the following: TheLife of Jesus, The Teaching of Jesus, TheRise of Christianity, The Religious Teaching of the Fourth Gospel, The Religion ofPaul, and The Interpretation of the Bible.In the modern field, and of a general nature so as to gain a survey of the wholereligious field in brief: Great ReligiousLeaders, Christianity in the Modern World,Essentials of Religion, Modern ReligiousProblems, and Masterpieces of ReligiousLiterature. In these latter groups ofstudies we spend most of the time in classreports and discussions, enabling the youngmen and women to gain familiarity withtheir material through constant expressionof their opinions and the results of theirresearch.The aims of this work are, in general, asfollows: (1) To help the student appreciatethe bjblical literature through a betterknowledge of its natural origin in the vitalexperiences of the many men who here writeand speak their noblest convictions; (2) toteach him respect for religious truth byshowing its beneficent influence throughcenturies of history; (3) to help him cultivate openmindedness by showing howtruths change, invariably and necessarily, astimes and needs require; (4) to show theimportance of aggressive religious leadership in every age, especially through appreciation of the life and achievements ofJesus and the Prophets; (5) to help eachstudent work out for himself those fundamental principles of life which will aid himto make his best contribution to his generation; (6) to quicken his insight into theneeds and problems of his own time; (7) tohelp him gain an appreciation of the Bibleand of all first-class religious literature —on its literary side, with the culture and re-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEfinement which usually issue from such anacquaintance; (8) to save him from theunfortunate misconceptions which an un-historical interpretation of the Bible usuallyyields; (9) to give him new confidence inhis own honest powers of estimating truth,and (10) more confidence in the unseenHand which guides human destinies.A very earnest effort is made by the instructors of this department to keep all itswork up to the accepted academic standards, and to relate it to the work of othercollege departments. Instructors in history,literature, science and philosophy are constantly meeting thesame difficulties inthe training of students which we heremeet. Frequently amisunderstanding ofsome religious question will prevent astudent from doingeffective work inthese other departments. And howoften it is true thata man or womanwill "get his eyesopened" in somecourse such as evolution, geology, astronomy, or history,and ever afterwardwill be ready to appreciate the best inreligion.Unfortunately, thework of Home, Sec-ondary School,Church and Collegeare far from beinghappily co-ordinated. Most students seem still tocome to college withall too meagre preparation for the perplexities which necessarily accompanyall efforts to attain mental and moralgrowth. The blame for "the awakening" toscientific fact and for the accompanyingstruggle which so often ensues naturallyfalls upon the instructor in whose classthe student happens to be at the time.Ought not a home or a church whichteaches a mediaeval view of religion,with the expectation that it will standall the scientific tests of a college career,to share in the blame which usuallystrikes the college instructor alone? Or,better yet, could not far better results bothfor scholarship and for religion be attainedif parents and instructors could meet infrequent conference to understand and tosolve these problems which inevitably ariseAssistant Professor Fred Merrifield,.'98, D. B. '01in a day of transitional thought like this?So many good results have sprung frompersonal and group consultations betweenstudents and instructors here upon thecampus that I often wish the plan couldbe broadened to include the parents also.If neighborhood groups, or parents' associations, or even whole churches, were tostudy the modern religious problems whichface nearly every thoughtful student somewhere in his college career, there would bea speedy readjustment of our methods ofeducating our young people for their workin college and later in the business worldand the sphere of_„ „ „ „ „ „, „j, the home.It is surprisinghow few young people came to the university with evenapproximately adequate educationalong ethical and religious lines. We'restill turning out arace of Topsies, andwhat else can we expect with a Topsyattitude toward life?Superstition and indifference to moralideals could be almost entirely eliminated in a generation if otar ,educa-tional forces inhome, church andschool would oncetake up the taskseriously and intelligently.Is it fair to teachour young peoplethat the finest scientific principlesknown to the modern world shall apply to everythingthat has to do withbusiness, teaching,the law and medical professions, even tohousekeeping, and yet leave these sameboys and girls in mediaeval darkness regarding those great moral principles whichyield an understanding of humankind, whichbuild up backbone for the struggles whichsooner or later come to every man andevery woman of us? Shall religion — whichis life lived at its best, an ideal spirit meantto inspire every type of labor and thoughtand capable of transforming our mediocrepowers into really creative forces — shallsuch a power be held back from the whitelight of modern thought and not be madeto fill its true place in the education of ouryouth?In the last ten or fifteen years, I haveIN HISTORY ANDheard literally hundreds of students andother young people say: "I have spent tenor twenty years in Sunday school and today I know practically nothing of theBible." "Even in high school I began tofeel that there was lack of harmony between the Sunday and the week-day training I was getting." "One or two coursesin college science or history made most ofthe views I received at home and churchquite untenable." "Why can't we have consistent religious teaching from childhoodup, upon a basis which will give a manconfidence in his own honest thinking? Iffundamental principles of living and inspiring types of conduct, we young peoplewould not feel that we were 'losing ourreligion' when, from time to time, our viewschanged regarding some biblical storylearned in childhood."On the other hand, hundreds of youngpeople are regaining their respect for"sacred literature." Indeed, they are coming to see that all literature of all ageswhich describes the great human experiences worthily is sacred, before men asbefore God. This relating of biblical experience to those of our own day; thisplacing of Amos and Jesus in Chicago, NewYork and San Francisco makes us feel thatthey are talking to needy conditions of alltimes and that human living and longinghave not greatly changed in the briefmoment of time which has elapsed sincethe days of Moses and his great successors.One of bur brightest students a few yearsback wrote as follows: "As I look backover my last two quarters' study, the pointwhich now stands out most signally beforeme is the evolutionary value of Jesus' message to the world. Before, I had always hada leaning toward a belief in evolutionaryprocesses, but I didn't like to think aboutit because I was sure I could never reconcileit to my religion. But, what a wonderfuloutlook Jesus' evolutionary ideal of religioncan give one! It gives a hope and vitalitythat were never there before. I feel thatmy eyes have been opened to the biggest,highest perspective of life that my collegecourse has offered me. The historical Jesushas a great place in our present-day life."Here is another common experience,again quoted word for word: "Christianityis a great force in character-building, as itshows and gives us a purpose in life. Andonly a life with a purpose is rich andamounts to something. Since I have become imbued with the right spirit of Christianity, I am an altogether different person.Life means something to me now. Insteadof a gloomy, depressed, pessimistic girl, Iam cheerful, full of hope and vitality. Mytask seems so much easier now since I haveput love into all my work. Not only myselfbut also my friends profit by the change that LITERATURE OP RELIGION 171has come over me. I can see them in adifferent light and inspire them with myhope and cheerfulness."Chairs of Biblical Literature are, in steadily increasing numbers, being established inour American colleges and universities. Atnumbers of the state universities credit isbeing given for this type of work. Andhigh schools are, in not a few cases, encouraging their English instructors to usethe biblical materials for part of their required work. Several annual conferences ofbiblical instructors are held in various partsof the country. One such group meetshere every spring. One of the chief reasons for this breakdown of prejudice isfound in the fact that instructors nowadaysare doing their work on a strictly academicbasis, as free from sectarian bias as are themen and women who teach in other departments.Furthermore, the educational forces ofour country are beginning to s.ee that wesuffer a distinct literary, cultural and moralloss when we neglect this classic literaturefor a generation or two.Dr. Richard G. Moulton, in his ModernReaders' Bible, and The Literary Study of theBible, Professor Gardner, in his book, TheBible as English Literature, Wood and Grant,in The Bible as Literature, and Selleck, inThe New Appreciation of the Bible, have donea great service to our rising generation bygiving us fresh glimpses of the power inherent in this literature that belongs to alltime just because it is so human, so divinelyhuman. There is now at hand a splendidlibrary dealing with all phases of this subject,such works as : Gilbert, The Interpretationof the Bible; Clarke, Sixty Years with theBible; Moore, The Literature of the OldTestament; Bennett and Adeney, Biblical Introduction; Bade, The Old Testament in theLight of Today; Goodspeed, The Story of theNew Testament, and Hunting, The Story ofOur Bible. The lists of these more popularworks and also lists of the more technicalworks, we publish in our departmental bulletin, "Courses in the Field of Religion andEthics," which is always ready for distribution through the information office or can behad by application to either Dr. Willett or myself. If we can ever serve groups of ourAlumni by giving lectures upon religious subjects or by answering inquiries concerningthe work done here and the problems involved, we are more than glad to do so.Not only is all this literature about theBible available for the students today, but theOld and New Testaments themselves are nowtranslated, into plain modern English, so attractive and readable that the old-type commentaries are hardly needed any longer.

The crisis ofthe season was on Feb. 14, downstate, whenthe Page five cracked the Illini by winning23-21, but the climax came two weeks laterwhen Chicago triumphed 27-20 at Bartlettin a furious game.At Urbana it was a case of fighting theIndians off their feet, and the team wasgood enough to go out before a ravingcrowd of 4,000 hostile rooters and win thegame after a bad start. At half time theteams were tied 13-13, but Chicago spurtedand scored ten points early in the secondhalf and then went on the defensive whilethe Illinois team crept up steadily. Withfour minutes to go the Illini needed twobaskets, but they could only get one. Thegame at Chicago was largely an affair ofmarvelous defense, with Crisler and Hinklecarrying the brunt of the guarding, withhelp from the other three Maroons.

He was born at Alton, Illinois,April 1, 1858, the son of Washington andM. H. (Sallee) Parker. In 1878 he obtainedthe A. B. degree from Shurtleff College, atUpper Alton, Illinois, the same institutionfrom which Trustee Willard A. Smith wasgraduated nine years before. In 1884 Mr.Parker obtained the A. M. degree at Shurtleff College, and in 1903 his Alma Materhonored him with the honorary degree ofDoctor of Laws.Mr. Parker hadremoved to Chicagoin 1879 and, in 1880,was admitted to thebar. For three yearsthereafter he wasconnected with theUnited States Patent Office, and then,in 1883, entered thepractice of law inChicago, specializing in Patent andTrade Mark law.He has been engaged in this practice ever since, andis the head of the.,law firm of Parker& Carter, patentand trademark attorneys, in the Marquette Building. Histhree sons, FrancisW., Jr., '07, Norman S., '11, Ph. D.,'16, and Leslie M.Parker, '17, J. D.,'18, are connectedwith the firm. Mr.Parker is a memberof the Illinois Stateand the ChicagoBar Associations.Mr. Parker hasbeen a prominentfigure in political fields for many years.He was a member of the Illinois House ofRepresentatives from 1885-87, representingthe First Senatorial District; he obtaineddistinction as one of a group, known asthe "One Hundred and Three," who suc ceeded in electing General John A. Loganas United States Senator from Illinois. In1902 Mr. Parker was elected state senatorfrom the Fifth (the Hyde Park) district,and served in the Illinois Senate from1902 to 1905. On all legislative and publicquestions he was noted for his broad-minded and public-spirited attitude.Besides serving as a trustee of the University, Mr. Parker was a trustee of theBaptist Union Theological Seminary (whichinstitution became, in 1891, the DivinitySchool of the University of Chicago), andis a trustee of Shurtleff College.

Donnelly.*■■Another trustee who is a Chicagoan bybirth is Thomas E. Donnelly. Mr. Donnelly was born in Chicago on August 18,1867, the son of Richard Robert and NaomiAnne (Shenstone) Donnelly. His father'soccupation was that of printer, and, due tothe energetic advance of the business ascarried on by the father and later by thesons, the name of Donnelly has well nighbecome a synonym for success in the printing trades.After receiving theusual preparatoryeducation, ThomasDonnelly enteredYale University,taking the "oldstyle" course inGreek, Latin andMathematics. Hewas graduated A. B.from Yale in 1889.As soon as he leftcollege he started inat his father's printing business in Chicago and has beenin that firm eversince. On May 24,1899, he was marriedto Laura Leon oreGaylord, three children coming fromthis marriage — Clarissa, Elliott, andGaylord Donnelly.Thomas Donnelly'smarked executiveabilities have been agreat factor in therapid developmentof the printing firmestablished by hisfather. The firm, R.R. Donnelly & SonsCompany, known asThe Lakeside Press, Thomas E. Donnelly*>and located at 731 Plymouth Court, hasprinted, in addition to other works, a greatmany telephone and city directories, andput out a recent edition of the EncyclopediaBritannica. It is regarded by many as thegreatest printing house in the United States,it operates on the apprentice system, and is known as a "model plant." Mr. Thomas E.Donnelly is president of the company, hisbrother, Reuben H., is vice-president, and,incidentally, Herbert P. Zimmermann, '01, issecretary.Like others of our trustees, Mr. Donnellyhas not confined his interest to businesspursuits. Through membership in the CliffDwellers, the Caxton, and the Quadrangleclubs he has taken part in developing theartistic, the literary, and the educationalphases of city life; he has also taken part incivic and similar matters as a member ofthe Union League, the City, the Commercial, and the University clubs. As a member of other clubs.both in Chicago andNew York City, hehas figured in prominent social affairs.He is secretary ofthe First StatePawners Society ;during the last sixmonths of the warhe served as a director of the Pulpand Paper Sectionof the War Industries Board at Washington.Since 1909 Mr.Donnelly has beena member of ourBoard of Trustees.It is obvious that aman of his training,experience, and capacities can renderinvaluable service tothe University alongspecial lines, and hehas rendered suchservice as chairmanof the Committee onPress and Extension. He is, furthermore, vice-chairmanof that on Buildingsand Grounds.Thomas E. Donnelly is the first amongthat later group of trustees who have entered the service of, and who have greatlyassisted the University within the last tenyears — the men who are "carrying on" inthe same spirit of progress that has alwaysbeen so characteristic of the Board.LETTER BOX 181The Letter Box j"- ■ " — — " " — u " — a I — » « — " I — — " n — M I —I II — u II ^— I u nn — | D — 11 II — m II ,| i| , I, n | , , , , „,¥■We Score AgainFebruary 4, 1920.Mr. A.

It is a pleasureto enclose check for the $2.00.But, I am not a "Chicagoan" as you infer^neither have I any of the Quadrangle memories, which I sincerely regret, for I havenever entered the University, exceptthrough correspondence. And now, dueto the rush of commercial and official affairs, I have no time for further study.even by that means.Notwithstanding this rush, the Magazinecomes as a welcome guest, and while Iknow none whose name is mentioned, except an instructor or a text-book writer,the other items keep me somewhat postedwith the trend of events at the University,and serves as a binding tie to past memories of midnight oil via U. S. M. and myinstructors.As to news notes, I am president of thaSouthern Trading Corporation, and consul for seven foreign countries — the recordin the United States. In addition to thisI am the instructor of practical exporting;in the School for Foreign Trade and Shipping conducted by the Chamber of Commerce under the guidance of the SpringHill College.I sincerely trust you will meet with thesuccess your efforts merit, and with bestwishes, I am,Sincerely yours,T. G. MacGonigal.The Fame of "Teddy"January 16, 1920.My Dear Mr. Moulds:The "Magazine" or the "Maroon" maybe interested in the enclosed clipping for,copy or comment. Running through oneof our many foreign publications, theNorth-China Daily News (Shanghai), I wasagreeably surprised to find how wide thewings of fame had carried our friend andprofessor, James Weber Linn. The Englisheditor of this publication certainly has anose for good news.You may be surprised at my versatility,when I tell you that, although I am associated with the "steel magnets," my residence is among the rabble on the LowerEast Side. By an assortment of events,especially through finding Frank Breckin ridge at Columbia, I became a volunteerworker at the University Settlement Society in the Jewish national territory ofManhattan. And there I live, and see howthe other 90,000,000 live in tenements. Yes,verily, one learns a lot away from theCampus.With kindest regards to you and everybody, believe me,Sincerely yours,Harry B.

An anonymous donorhas made possible the purchase of this collection. The prints are extremely interesting and will look notably well against thelight walls in the corridors of Harper,Classics and the future Modern LanguageBuilding.I wonder if there is any other donorwho is willing to contribute a set of frames,say twenty-five, in which an exhibit of thesepictures may be maintained. The mountsare uniform and exhibitions can be easilyarranged therefore by using frames adjustable after the museum fashion. Or perhaps some former student will wish toframe permanently some particular portrait. For example, William Ernest Henley,Bernard Shaw, Rodin, Paul Verlaine, W. H.Hudson, Robert Bridges, Thomas Hardy,Henry James, Mrs. Meynell, Coquelin,Henry Irving, Ellen Terry, Max Beerbohm.Yours very truly,David A. Robertson.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINESchool of Education AssociationThe University of Chicago Dinnerat Cleveland+-iThe annual mid-winter meeting of the Department of Superintendence of the National Education Association was held inCleveland during the week of February 23-27. About 8,000 men and women gatheredin what is recognized as the most importantnational meeting of educational leaders. Attesting the fact that the influence of theUniversity of Chicago is playing a largepart in the profession of teaching, especiallythroughout the Middle West, was thepresence in the convention of several hundred alumni of our University. From colleges, universities, normal schools all overthe country, and from widely separatedplaces of influence as city superintendents,high-school principals and teachers, cameChicago alumni; and always as they metthey exchanged their warm greetings incommon affection for their University. TheUniversity of Chicago has no more loyalgraduates than those who owe their affiliations to her through the School of Education.And for them all the high spots of theweek was the University of Chicago dinner,held in one of the large banquet halls of theHotel Statler on the evening of February24. In spite of numerous other meetings,two hundred and seventy-five alumni andformer students gathered to talk about thelife and the work of their alma mater. Fromthe very first remarks of the toastmaster tothe closing address of the evening, the factwas constantly emphasized that the banquetwas a university, not a departmental, function. Director Judd extended the personalgreetings and good wishes of President Jud-son and spoke of the rapidly maturing planswhich are to eventuate in the new medicalbuildings, in the memorial chapel and thenew Quadrangle Club. He stressed thethought that the remarkable physical development thus going forward is merely inkeeping with the rapid extension of theUniversity's power and influence.Three of the speakers dwelt upon developments that are taking place within theSchool of Education. Miss Alice Temple,Assistant Professor of Kindergarten-PrimaryEducation, explained the plans for her department. The two-year kindergarten primary course, which in the past has led to acertificate, is being abandoned. In its placeis being substituted a four-year course, aregular department in the College of Educa tion, leading to the Ph.B. degree. MissTemple made clear that the change contemplated the expenditure of instructionalenergy less in the preparation of primaryteachers and far more than in the past inthe preparation of supervisors, instructors inprimary methods, and experts in this particular branch of elementary education.Professor H. C. Morrison spoke of the planswhich are maturing under his leadership forthe two laboratory schools, dwelling especially upon the concrete experiments whichwill reduce the University ElementarySchool to six years, increase the UniversityHigh School course to five years, and establish two complete years of junior-collegework, enabling the laboratory schools to become experimental agencies in the movements for better articulation of lowerschools, and for economy of time in education. Mr. Judd explained the very thoroughrealignment and reorganization of coursesplanned for the graduate department of theSchool of Education. The essential principles involved in the new curriculum are:First, a more careful gradation of courses bywhich undergraduate courses are to be heldquite distinct from graduate; second, abreaking away in the most advanced workfrom large and inclusive courses, and a substituting of highly differentiated and specialized courses within the various fields.But Dean W. S. Gray had carefullyplanned the banquet to give suitable information concerning the organization ofthe general alumni association. To this endespecially he had invited Principal L. W.Smith of Joliet Township High School,president of the School of Education AlumniAssociation, to be one of the speakers.President Smith, in a serious and thoughtfuladdress, advanced plans by which throughearnest co-operation the School of Education Alumni Association might be made anagency for stimulating genuine scientific investigation in various high schools. Principal J. G. Masters of Omaha Central HighSchool, told of the plans under way in theOmaha Alumni Club for founding a scholarship in the University and for directing tothe University promising graduate students.By both of these men and by the toast-master emphasis was laid upon the important functions which an active and energetic alumni association may perform forOF EDUCATION MEETING— COURSES IN RELIGION 183the University, in addition to serving as therallying points for occasional, reunions.That the serious program was not unwelcome is evidenced by the fact that all of theguests remained until a late hour. Severalfeatures added to the enjoyment, notablythe presence of Professor Paul Hanus, ofHarvard, Dean Charters of Pittsburgh, andthe cordial interchange of greetings withthe Dinner of Teachers' College of Columbia, which was being held in an adjoining hall. Director Otis W. Caldwell, of theLincoln School, expressed for Columbiagood fellowship to Chicago, and ProfessorFrank N. Freeman bore our good cheer toColumbia. Especially enjoyable was themusic interspersed throughout the programby Mr. and Mrs. Matthew H. Willing, ofthe University School, Cleveland. And whenthe banquet was over, many alumni, reluctant to leave, continued the reunion inmarty a friendly circle.Courses in Religion(Continued From Page 171)New Testament and Kent's The Student's OldTestament (in 5 volumes). The best of theOld Testament literature in Kent's populartranslation will soon be available in one handyvolume. His new Testament selections in special translation are already available in theShorter Bible: The New Testament. Ultimately, it is hoped, a third volume of thislatter series may be issued covering the bestreligious materials in modern literature.As fast as college men and women see thatthe history and literature of religion are stillinspirational for modern thought and conduct, they lose their apologetic attitude whenreligious matters are mentioned ; they franklyespouse the cause of religion as vital to theneeds of modern society. They learn to discuss all phases of religious life and thoughtwithout animus. The fact that many of themelect two, three, and even five courses in thisline proves their appreciation of the subject.Quite a few, in fact, take their major or minorsequence in this field. Religion ceases to bean isolated, mysterious sort of luxury. It isbrought out into the open light of every day —a spirit that tends to find expression in morehonest application to study, a more conscientious attitude at examination periods, and adeeper interest in other students upon thecampus.In fact, a sane point of view in religion,gained from a better knowledge of the historyand meaning of religion as a worldwide andever-growing spirit of Life itself, almost invariably sets the student square with himselfand the whole world, enhancing his value tothe work-a-day world many times over.

The campus was then and still is allexcited over politics.While on the subject of elections I mightmention the results of the contest heldamong the women for places on the council of the Federation of University Womenthat took place Feb. 25. Ruby Woerner,Ruth Huey, Dorothy Lyons, Gladys Haw-ley, Virginia Lee, Elizabeth Williford andFrances Crozier were the successful ones.I am not sure as to the organization ofthe Federation, but I think that thesewomen belong to the Junior and Sophomore classes.Another important event in the femininecircles was the W. A. A. Circus. Feb. 27was the date and Ida Noyes gymnasiumthe place. The circus is held every threeor four years. Prof. Scott, of the Department of History, was the only male beingpresent, and he was there because his title"The Olympic Dames" was judged to besuperior to others submitted in the contest. They say he sat in a box seat. Josephine Strode acted as general manager ofthe Circus.Through the efforts of the ExecutiveCouncil and "Dean" Harry English, Messrs.Kieckhefer and Morin, noted billiard players, gave an exhibition in Bartlett gymnasium on Feb. 6 before 1,500 members of the Reynolds Club and friends.Many faculty men were seen among thespectators. Quite an affair for the club.Elections for the 1920-21 officers werenominated at a smoker held in the clubhouse on Feb. 24. Results of the electionwill be in this department next month.Many people not present at the Promon Feb. 20 attended the annual International Night, staged by the CosmopolitanClub. Mandel hall was pretty well filledto witness songs, games, dances and playlets of various nations.Blackfriars is busy with its spring production. Faber Birren, '23, drew the winning poster.

Harris willhave a race to beat Emery of Illinois, whohas been going the quarter in :51 fiat lately,but Speer should win the half, althoughSpink of Illinois is coming fast. The mileis a strong Maroon event, with Otis, Moore,Bowers, and possibly Jones as entries. Otislooks like the winner, and must repeat inthe two-mile, with Bowers as a likely placeman. Charley Higgins has the shot-putsafely tucked away, and the relay team ofSpeer, Harris, Curtiss and Kennedy, Jonesor Hall has a good chance. Bartky, whowas depended upon in the half, has troublewith his feet; Curtiss has been playing basketball and will be in shape to run the relayonly. Outdoors the team will be stronger,when Higgins can throw the discus, javelin,hammer, and shot, for what, at this distance,looks like four firsts. On March 6 theannual Illinois relays will be held, butDirector Stagg is still uncertain as to whichevents he will enter teams.Coach White's swimming team has itshopes for the conference on the same dateas the track meet, but Northwestern'sstrength makes the Maroon chances a trifledubious. Chicago has won from Iowa,48-39; and Illinois, 42-26. James Meagher,a junior, and sub linesman on the footballteam, took Craig Redmond's plunge recordof :18 3-5 and smashed it into bits in theIllinois meet, making his first plunge in17 1-5 and his second in :17 flat. TheMaroons will win that event; Ries, the 40and 100; Brunhart, in the breast stroke,Allison in the 220-yard swim, and possiblyYegge in the backstroke, and the relayrepresent the best Chicago chances.The other minor teams are not veryactive, but on March 12 there will be agymnastic, wrestling, and fencing meet withIllinois in Bartlett, and on April 3 the threeteams will go to Wisconsin for a meet.The conference in these sports will be heldat Illinois in March.With the series of high school trackmeets brought to a successful close, thenext big interscholastic is the second annual basketball interscholastic on March 18,19, 20.

Thirty-two teams willbe selected, with two sections — the highschool and academy.

C, is under thesupervision of the resident nurse. Fromthe course of lectures delivered in the winter by Dr. William P. Emerson of Boston,Mass., in connection with practical demonstrations given in various schools of Chicago a new impetus and inspiration wereadded to the work.In accordance with his plan NutritionClasses for Children found to be undernourished have been formed, in which thechildren are weighed and measured eachweek, and careful instructions given as todiet, rest and general hygiene. A thoroughphysical examination is made of each childby a physician. In the case of childrenfound in especial need of the daily restperiod, whose crowded surroundings, however, make such a thing impossible at home,arrangements are made to have them cometo the Settlement each afternoon afterFchool for an hour's rest. The large individual charts which play an importantpart in Dr. Emerson's plan record theweekly increase or decrease in weight, therest periods, the mid-morning and mid-afternoon lunches. The child who hasmade the greatest gain during the week isrewarded with a gold star on his chart.As far as possible, the mothers are inducedto come with the children for the lessonperiod, at which time the charts are hungaround the room, so that both the childrenand their mothers may see where eachchild stands in relation to the other children and to his own normal condition. Therivalry thus inspired is a very valuable incentive in arousing enthusiasm for the possession of the gold star. Another spur toeffort and enthusiasm are the prizes offered at the end of the twenty-week courseto the girl and boy first reaching the normal weight line. By these various methodsthe pursuit of health soon comes to appealto the child as a very interesting and exciting game.

Not by influence. Helpof this character defeats its own ends; itweakens rather than strengthens the man whoreceives it.Many of the leaders of American businesshave found a way to render more effective andpermanent help. They have investigated theAlexander Hamilton Institute and take advantage of every opportunity to recommend itstraining to their younger associates.What the Senator wroteSOME time ago a young business man in oneofthe leading southern cities enrolled for theInstitute's Modern Business Course and Service."My father-in-law is Senator so and so from aneighboring state," he said. "The Senator wroteme from Washington only a week ago urging me toenrol with the institute."My wife and the Alexander Hamilton Instituteare the only two blessings that the Senator has everrecommended to me in unqualified terms."He is one of the many thousand young menwho owe their business progress to the factthat some older man urged the importance ofbusiness training.The bigger the business,the more Institute menTWO facts stand out prominently to distinguish the Alexander Hamilton Institutefrom every other institution of business training.The first is the unusual proportion of collegemen who have welcomed its training. Of the110,000 men whom the Institute has enrolledin the ten years of its existence more than%5°lo are university graduates.The second fact is the widespread endorsement of this training afforded by the patronageof men in the nation's largest and most influential industries. The heads of large businesses recognize thatthe future of their enterprises depends upontheir ability to create new executi\es.The Advisory CouncilBUSINESS and educational authority ofthe highest type are represented on theInstitute's Advisory Council. That Councilconsists of:Frank A. Vanderlip, the financier; Genera!Coleman duPont, the well known businessexecutive; John Hayes Hammond, the eminent engineer; Jeremiah W. Jenks, thestatistician and economist; and Joseph FrenchJohnson, Dean of the New York UniversitySchool of Commerce.How much is a year ofyour life worth?THE Institute says to the salesman, theaccountant, the superintendent or theengineer : You must know the fundamentalsof every department of business if you are tosupervise those departments — selling, merchandising, advertising, costs, accounting, officeand factory management, corporation finance.To learn these by actual experience in eachdepartment will consume years of your life;here is a shorter, more direct route, based onthe experience and methods of the most successful men in business."The facts are in this book.WHETHER you are an olderman, interested in the successof your younger associates; or a young man seeking amore direct route to larger success and increased income,you should send for "Forging Ahead in Business".

These are differentiableattitudes and techniques, the origins of whichare traced to instinctive behavior. The rootsof both the religious and scientific attitudesare localized in the practices of primitivepeoples which are the outcome of instinctivetendencies.The difficulty with many of the older theories of the instinctive origin of religion andother disciplines is that they are based ondefinitions of instinctive behavior that are biologically untenable. Dr. Woodburne hassought to establish a theory on the basis of adefinition of instinct that will find acceptancewith the biologists. To this theory he hasgiven the name of "the multiple instinctiveorigin of religion and science."Contents1. Concerning Method.2.

Their advantages in pursuits ofpeace made them of inestimable value in time of war.A most interesting story tells of the devices evolved which substantiallyaided in solving one of the most pressing problems of the war— the submarine menace. Fanciful, but no less real, were the results attained inradio communication which enabled an aviator to control a fleet of flyingbattleships, and made possible the sending, without a wire, history-making messages and orders to ships at sea. Scarcely less important wasthe X-ray tube, specially designed for field hospital use and a notablecontribution to the military surgical service. And many other products,for both combatant and industrial use, did their full share in securing thevictory.In the laboratories are employed highly trained physicists, chemists,metallurgists and engineers, some of whom are experts of internationalreputation. These men are working not only to convert the resources ofNature to be of service to man, but to increase the usefulness of electricityin every line of endeavor. Their achievements benefit every individualwherever electricity is used.Scientific research works hand in hand with die development of new devices, more efficient apparatus and processes of manufacture. It resultsin the discovery of better and more useful materials and ultimately inmaking happier and more livable the life of all mankind.{Booklet, Y-863, describing the company's plants,will be mailed upon request.
