Mr. LinnEx-Dean found the demands on his time"Teddy" had increased so rapidly thathe was compelled to give upadministrative work at the University.Henceforth he will confine himself teaching and to writing. "Teddy," in his manyyears of service as a dean, has won an enviable reputation for ability to understandstudents, to readily analyze their particularproblems, and to assist and advise themmost helpfully in the courses. In any largeeducational institution it is always an assetto have in the administrative forces a personality that at once wins the "confidence"of the entering student, that impresses thenew student with the welcoming atmosphere of personal attention. Such a personality was "Teddy" Linn. Generationsof students had come to look upon JamesWeber Linn not so much as a dean, but asa friend; that feeling, in a large measure,accounts for his constant popularity amongthe students', to them he was always"Teddy." We regret that he now finds itnecessary to give up that part of his workat the University, for his work as deanhas been also a large factor in the successof alumni projects. Hundreds of alumni,having enjoyed the ever friendly contactwith "Teddy" during their student days,naturally cherish a more personal interestin the University itself, and are, consequently, the more readily enlisted in alumniactivities. We will have to let him go, as dean — but it is good to know that, asteacher, he will still exercise that warm influence which will continue to make manystudents think of the University not somuch in terms of buildings and equipment,as in terms of friendship and hearty, personal interest.We should like to call your attention tothe letter appearing in this number fromConnor B. Shaw, telling ofAbroad the Alumni Day meeting ofAlumni Day our Washington AlumniClub, and expressing sentiments that will interest our alumni everywhere. We ask, too, that you note, in thearticle on the 1920 Reunion, the interestshown by the telegrams and letters received from sixteen alumni clubs. Spacelimitations prevented publishing all of theclub telegrams and letters, but the threeprinted are typical of the enthiusasm andloyalty evidenced in the many greetingssent to President Judson and the alumniwho were fortunate enough to attend therecent general Reunion on the Quadrangles.The time is at hand when "Chicagoans"everywhere should plan to set apart AlumniDay as their day and celebrate it accordingly. Nothing, perhaps, will so appeal tothe imagination of our alumni and to theirsincere interest in the City Gray as therealization that on one day a year, on theirDay at the University, alumni in all partsof the country, unable to be on the Quadrangles, have gathered together for reviv-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEing memories, renewing and extending acquaintances, and expressing continued loyalty to the University. This movement hasbeen given a good start — it should be carried on until Alumni Day becomes a fixeddate in the minds and hearts of all alumni.The success of it, of course, must alwaysrest largely with the clubs themselves;there is at present a strong indication thatthe clubs are now appreciating the opportunity. Alumni Day should become anotable, country-wide event.Each year suggestions have been offeredfor stimulating interest in the events at thegeneral Reunion, particularlyin the University Sing andin Class meetings on Saturday. It has been pointed outthat one difference betweenour reunions and those of other large universities is that there is an absence of thecomic element in our program. The paradeComicElementin Reunions in comic class costume seems to be a successful feature of many eastern reunions.Apparently, regardless of his age or normaldignity, an alumnus likes to be a boy againfor the brief time of his annual visit to thecampus. For the University Sing, for instance, it has been suggested that the program be varied by having each group orfraternity be accompanied by musicians,wear funny costumes, or in some other wayadd to the color and variety of the occasion. Again, it has been suggested thateach class now adopt a 'distinctive classhat — sailor, cockade, cook's hat, etc. — and'wear that class hat on Saturday, especiallyin the class parade. This latter plan,furthermore, suggests wearing the class"headgear" for twenty years, after which,upon becoming members of the Shantys,it is to give way to the Shanty tam-o-shan-ter. What do you think about it? TheMagazine will be glad to publish an expression of opinion or suggestions. Let ushear from vou.AT THE SHANTY CEREMONIESThe picture shows President Judson speaking, with Mr. Stagg; to his right,who spoke and sang a song just after.

It should be remembered that our"campaign" was in no way so far-reaching,so intensive, so personal, or so direct as thegreat "drives" conducted by a number ofcolleges and universities throughout thecountr-y; nor was our general purpose soappealing or commanding as to extract contributions where contributions couldscarcely be expected. Our purpose, however, has been of large importance to boththe alumni association and the University,and in proper recognition of that fact thehundreds of subscriptions already recordedhave been made. IaI a. a. .. ,._,_„ „_,. „ „._„ „ „_„_£There are still many of our alumni whohave not yet been reached; and there are,no doubt, hundreds who, if brought to fullrealization of the great services this Fundcan render, will willingly subscribe. Indeed,as its good purpose becomes clearer, subscriptions are coming in quite unsolicited.Since last April, without pressure of anysort, not a week has passed without subscriptions from various quarters. The Fundhas continued, and certainly will continue,to grow steadily. The first figures, announced in the Magazine in February,showed 454 subscribers, $68,920.50 in subscriptions, and $22,282.50 paid in; this issueshows 654 subscribers — an increase of almost 50% — subscriptions amounting to$88,841.00, and $31,829.17 paid in. Furthermore, we have been able, through favorablepurchase of Liberty Bonds, to increase theamount of the funds on hand to the sum of$33,793.85. It is fair to estimate that bythe time the Fund is but a year old, by nextJanuary, it will have reached $100,000 insubscriptions, and about $50,000 in funds onhand.Our Fund deserves fullest support. It iswell started. Watch it and make it grow.LOOKING TOWARD MITCHELL TOWERThis bird's-eye view of the northeast quadrangle shows MitchellTower and the nearby buildings.

Atelegram of greetings to the President ofthe University was sent, a copy of whichyou probably saw.The meeting was informal. The largerpart of the people were Government employes and each person present was calledupon to state briefly the kind of work heor she is doing. Dr. Hobbs, formerly inthe Physics Department, made a short butinteresting talk. We were also fortunate inhaving with us Dr. S. W. Stratton, Directorof the Bureau of Standards. He made avery interesting talk, chiefly about theBureau of Standards. Mr. Jesse D. Burksacted as toastmaster and admirably carriedout the program of the evening.The meeting was very enthusiastic andeveryone seemed to enjoy it to the utmost.Considering the time of year and also thefact that within the last few months wehave lost several alumni on account of theirmoving away from the city, the attendancewas exceedingly good.I think the idea of establishing an AlumniDay on which all of the alumni clubsthroughout the country will meet will do agreat deal toward making a success of thepresent movement to arouse the interest ofthe alumni in the University. If adhered toin the future, it is, to my mind, one of thebest plans that has been laid out for accomplishment of the purpose. I am surethat the meetings of the other alumni clubsthroughout the country were as successfulas the Washington meeting and I congratulate you and your associates upon the success of your undertaking.I wish to repeat that I think the workof keeping alive the interest of the alumniin the University is one of the longest forward steps that has been taken. The vigorand persistence with which this work isbeing prosecuted has brought about resultswhich are very gratifying. The Washington Club will be glad to do anything withinits power to assist.Very truly yours,(Signed) Connor B. Shaw.

Acquaintanceswere renewed, new acquaintances made, andmany alumni were again brought tin touchwith the University. The various events onthe program were also largely attended,some having the largest attendance yetrecorded.The University SingThe University Sing was never so successful as it was this year — largely due tothe careful and detailed work of S. Edwin("Xed") Earle, '11, who again had thisevent in charge. Hutchinson Court wascrowded to capacity; the fraternities entered and sang their songs with snap andprecision; the University band kept thingslively; the award of athletic honors for theyear, by Mr. Stagg, and the announcementof the new appointments of Aides and Marshals, added to the general color and spiritof the occasion. From time to time the results of the balloting at the Republican Convention were announced, giving furtheropportunity for cheers and yells. As wasdone last year, the singers remained in theCourt at allotted places, and at the end theentire gathering joined in the singing, closing with Alma Mater. The evening wasclosed with a dance at the Reynolds Club.The events on Saturday, June 12 (AlumniDay), opened with special class and groupgatherings about the Shanty and the classtents. During the afternoon a tennis matchwas played between Clifton Herd andHarry Waidner, nationally known players,and Pike and Jamieson of the Universityteam. Of course Herd and Waidner wonthe match easily, but the exhibition gavemany a chance to see two noted players inaction on the courts.The ShantyThe Shanty again did a big business inserving a good old 19th century bill-of-fareto many visitors. It was in charge of"Billy" Ingham and Mrs. Ingham, his wife,who were assisted by Josephine Allin, Mrs.Davida Harper Eaton, Elinor Flood, andothers. The Shanty Ceremonies took placeat 5 P. M., in charge of Mrs. Nott Flint.Horace Lozier, as song-master, led in theTHE CLASS OF 1880The class of 1880 celebrated its Fortieth Anniversary at the June Reunion. Four members returned,and Reunion letters were received from the ten other classmates still living. Major Edgar B. Tolman, whoheaded the Reunion, is standing in the right foreground, with a cane; the second from the right justbehind him is E. W. Clement, who came from Tokyo, japan, to the Reunion.

'09, who presided at the first annual CampusClub Dinnersinging of "Shanty Days," a new song written by Scott Brown — the song appears inthis issue — and several of the Chicago songspopular in the earlier days, accompanied bythe University Band. President Judson, inaddressing the gathering, stated that bothhe and Mr. Stagg were away in 1912, when,at the time of building the new athleticfield stands, the original shanty unfortunately was town down; had either he or Mr.Stagg been here at the time the Shantywould have been preserved, because of itshistoric interest and its place in the affections of the older alumni. Mr. Stagg toldsome of his experiences in the Shanty, andthen sang one of the negro melodies whichhe used to sing there, the audience joiningin the chorus. The program was uniqueand fitting, everybody enjoying the finespirit of the event. Later in the day theShanty Organization held a special meeting,at which the following officers were electedfor the coming year: President, HenryGordon Gale; Vice-President, Mrs. DavidaHarper Eaton; Secretary. John P. Mentzer;Treasurer. Jack Hagey; Executive Committee, the officers, and former President ScottBrown, and former Vice-President Josephine Allin. The Class of 1897 elected "Billy"Ingham an honorary member. PresidentJudson, the first honorary member, waselected last year. "" ™ "* The Alumni DinnerAt the general alumni dinner in Hutchinson Commons, the crowd was seated byclasses. Chairman Frank McNair, presiding,read Reunion telegrams from the following alumni clubs: Cincinnati, Columbus,Connecticut, Denver, Emporia, Indianapolis,Los Angeles, New York, Omaha, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Sioux City, fromAgnes Wayman for New York alumnae,and Washington, D. C. Reunions letterswere read from the Seattle and Vermontclubs. He then announced that the AlumniFund, started last winter, had reached atotal of over $88,000 in subscriptions, and atotal of over $33,000 in the amount now onhand, with 648 subscribers. A rising voteof thanks was given to Mr. McNair for hiswork as Chairman of the Alumni Counciland as Chairman of the Alumni Fund Committee.A. G. Pierrot presented a Secretary's Report for the year, showing over 2,500 activemembers in the Alumni Association. Hepointed out that during the year there weretwenty-four meetings of the Council and itscommittees; that a year ago there werebarely five local alumni clubs existing, andnow there are thirty-two. Mr. Pierrotcalled attention to the new biographicalfiles in the alumni office, and asked co-operation by the alumni in sending in photographs, newspaper clippings, and other datafor these files. He stated that the newAlumni Directory, delayed by general conditions, was now being distributed. He thenannounced the result of the election in theCollege Association (see page 308).President Judson SpeaksPresident Judson then spoke, welcomingthe alumni, and emphasizing the significance of the work done by them. The president noted that we are apt to see only ourfaults while at the same time we see onlythe good points of other alumni associations; it was evident that our alumni, too,were accomplishing things, and that wecould face the future with confidence.Thomas J. Hair, the newly elected president of the College Association, was calledupon. Mr. Hair stated that he realized itwould require much effort to successfullycarry on the good work begun by ChairmanMcNair, but he was willing to do his besttoward advancing alumni affairs. He askedthe co-operation of the other officers andof the alumni toward making his administration a most successful one.The Senior VaudevilleThe dinner-meeting then adjourned to attend the First Annual Alumni Performanceof the Senior Vaudeville, in Mandel Hall.The excellent thirty-piece student orchestra.the various clever acts, particularly the BaseHospital A.

LeRoy Baldridge, '11(i^l^The Baldridge SketchesIn our May number we published three Koreansketches by C. LeRoy Baldridge, '11, made on histrip to that country last winter. The three sketcheson this page complete the series that Roy has kindlypresented to The University of Chicago Magazine.These sketches reveal much of the character of theKoreans — modest . unassuming, but courageous andcapable of enduring hardships for generations. Thesketch of the "Korean School Girl," in the Maynumber, and the companion sketch of the "KoreanCollege Boy" to the right, are particularly interestingas showing types of the more educated classes ofthat country. The Korean farmer, above, depicts atype that for centuries has sought to snatch a livingfrom land that in many places offers but little evenafter great struggle. Articles by Nat Peffer, '11,illustrated by Baldridge, have been appearing inrecent numbers of magazines and have pointed outmany of the quaint and ancient customs and~ characteristics of the Korean people. Because of itsrelations with Japan and the whole internationalproblem of the Orient, Korea has in recent yearsattracted the attention of the world. For that reason,too, we believe that these sketches are of peculiarand timely interest.

Among the women's collegesrepresented were Bryn Mawr, Barnard,Radcliffe, Smith, and Vassar. At the conclusion of the Convention one general association was formed, including both alumniand alumnae secretaries.The program was a large one, taking upfull ten hours on each of the first" two dayswith the various papers presented and thegeneral discussion. The discussion wasvery frank, and the papers went into theproblems thoroughly, so that all in attendance were able to get at the aims ofthe various alumni associations and at the"inside" methods of endeavoring to accomplish those aims. Details of organization, of special campaigns, of alumni officemanagement, of alumni records, of magazine editing, and of other phases of alumniwork and activities were presented. Theprogram in detail was as follows:Advertising Problems: W. Roy Barn-hill, of the advertising firm of Roy Barn-hill, Inc., New York; William A. James,Business Manager, Yale Alumni Weekly.Editorial Problems: Edwin Oviatt,Editor, Yale Alumni Weekly; Walter R.Okeson, Editor, Lehigh Alumni Bulletin.Subscription Problems: Paul (i. Tomlinson, Princeton University Press. Student Relations: R. W. Sailor, Business Manager, Cornell Alumni News.Alumni Reunions: C. W. McKibbin,Michigan Agricultural College; Miss AgnesThompson, University of Kansas; LouisR. Wilson, North Carolina.War Memorials: A. M. Souby, Vanderbilt.War Records: H. L.

Macdonald, Northwestern.Alumni Office Management and Work:A. G. Pierrot, Chicago.The Employment Office: John J. Coss,Columbia.Special conferences were held to consider problems peculiar to women's colleges, to state universities, and to smallerendowed colleges.On Friday. May 14. the delegates wereguests at a luncheon given by the MichiganAlumni Association, at which Judge V '. H.Lane, President of the Michigan AlumniAssociation, and others gave addresses; andin the evening were guests at a dinnergiven by the University of Michigan, whenPresident H. B. Hutchins of the University of Michigan, Dean H. M. Bates of theMichigan Law School, and others addressed the gathering. On Saturday afternoon. May 15, there was an inspection ofthe University of Michigan. The delegates stayed at the Michigan Union, inwhich fine building; a monument to Michigan alumni spirit, the sessions were held.The delegates felt deeply indebted to Mr.Wilfred B, Shaw, Alumni Secretary, andother Michigan authorities, for the spiritof hospitality and co-operation shownthroughout the Convention.The Chicago delegate was particularlyencouraged by the information gained at 'thisgathering. We sometimes see our own"failures" so clearly, and hear of the "successes" of others so frequently, that wealmost conclude that we. alone, are unsuccessful. It was somewhat "gratifying"to learn, therefore, that every alumni organization, east, west, north, or south,likewise has its troubles — unable to evenremotely interest an important percentageof its alumni; complaints about the institution; complaints about the alumni; difficulties in getting and keeping association(Continued on page 306)NOTES 293I . . sI University Notes 1Under the East Bridge at Harper MemorialLibraryThe total registration of students at theUniversity of Chicago for the spring quarter, 1920, is:In the Graduate Schools of Arts, Literature and Science there are 438 men and 257women, a total of 695.

Schoell, nowAssistant Professor of Romance Languagesin the University. The manuscript, thoughanonymous, bears internal evidence of having been the work of Chapman. The titleis Charlemagne; or the Distracted Emperor.The manuscript was in hand for publication by the University of Louvain whenthe city was sacked and much of the university burned by the Germans in 1914.Mr. Schoell, who was a prisoner in Germany during part of the war, has rewritten all the notes as well as the chapteron sources,, and the play will shortly bepublished with an introduction explainingits history.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAnnouncement is made from New Yorkthat President Judson and Professor Andrew Cunningham McLaughlin, head of theDepartment of History, have accepted invitations to serve on the Board of Electorsto the Hall of Fame, New York University.As electors, they will aid in selecting themen who through their contributions tosociety have been deemed worthy of permanent remembrance.News has been received from the Expedition of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago through the director,Professor James Henry Breasted, whowrites aboard the S. S. "Torilla" on thePersian Gulf under date of March 7. FromCairo, Egypt, the party had traveled elevendays by slow freighter to Bombay, India,where they stayed at a hostel which was aconverted university science building usedduring the war as a hospital. There wasa loss of only two days by the change ofship at Bombay and the party expected toreach Bosra at the junction of the Tigrisand Euphrates rivers on March 9.This will be the first archaeological expedition to profit by the new railway fromthe Persian Gulf to Baghdad, which wascompleted by the British only a few weeksago. The road follows the Euphratesriver and will greatly facilitate the endeavors of the expedition to reach the ruinsof ancient Babylonia. By later cable it islearned that the party has reached Baghdadand is now on its way up the Tigris toMosul, opposite the ruins of Nineveh.By the end of May it is hoped the expedition may secure passage in an oil steamerfrom Bosra via the Indian Ocean directlyaround the Arabian Peninsula to Port Saidwithout returning to Bombay. The Britishgovernment .has offered every help. LordAllenby has furnished Director Breastedwith letters to the British authorities in theNear East, including also one to PrinceFeisal, whom the members of the expedition hope to meet in Damascus by Junein the course of the survey of Syria. Theparty expects to be able to sail from Naplesfor home by the latter part of August.Already some notable collections accumulated during the war have been securedby the expedition for the Haskell OrientalMuseum at the University.Professor James Hayden Tufts, Head ofthe Department of Philosophy, has acceptedan invitation to be Visiting Professor atColumbia University. He will be absentduring the next academic year and is tooffer at Columbia one course in moral andpolitical philosophy and another in the his tory of American thought, in addition to aseminar in present ethical problems.College Day at the University, June 14,was marked by the class exercises at theSenior Bench, which included the followingfeatures:Address by the president of the class of1920, Bernard Callahan MacDonald; presentation of the senior hammer to the class of1921, Charles Graham Higgins; responsefor the class of 1921, Murray Glenn Harding; presentation of the Cap and Gown tothe class of 1921, Edythe Louise Flack; response for the class of 1921, Enid Townley;presentation of the Senior Bench to theclass of 1921, Frank John Madden; responsefor the class of 1921, Harold Elliot Nicely;presentation of the Cheerleader's Coat tothe class of 1921, Ruthven Wedgwood Pike;and response for the class of 1921, ChalmerClose McWilliams.The senior class poem was given by Elizabeth Stebbins Brown, the class history byHarold Eugene Stansbury, and the classoration by James Mount Nicely.The class gift was presented by FrankAinsworth Long, and President Judsonmade the response in behalf of the University.June Convocation StatisticsFive hundred and ninety-seven degreesand certificates were conferred by the University of Chicago at its One Hundred andSixteenth Convocation on June 15,In the Colleges of Arts, Literature, andScience there were three hundred and fifteen candidates for the Bachelor's degree;in the College of Commerce and Administration, thirty-seven candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy; and in theCollege of Education, forty candidates forthe degree of Bachelor in Education, a totalin the Colleges of 392.In the Divinity School twenty-one Master's degrees were conferred, six Bachelordegrees, and one degree of Doctor of Philosophy, a total of 28.

Sherwin, '221afaa.Edward Waful, Jr., '22For a time Waful worked on The Daily Maroon,but gave up that work to start The Phoenix. Hehas been prominent in Blackfriars and in otheraffairs on the campus. His work on The Phoenixhas given that publication an excellent start. Elliott D. Sherwin, '22Sherwin came to the University from a smallcollege in Iowa, last year. He was on the 1920Cap and Gown Staff and has been active about theschool. He knows how to sell The Phoenix — which,of course, is half the battle at least.For some reason which is difficult to explain the University has never been able tosupport a monthly literary magazine. TheChicago Literary Monthly stood for sometime, but it fell, rumor says, because it wastoo "high-brow," a mortal curse to manyanother well-intentioned enterprise. TheGreen Cap, a freshman publication of several years ago, did not last for the oppositereason — it was "low-brow." It occurred toa small group of undergraduates during thepast year that perhaps by steering a middlecourse a creditable magazine might befounded. Accordingly, in March the firstnumber of The Phoenix appeared. Thename was suggested by the fact that thebird on the seal of the University was aphoenix and the further fact that the phoenix is a symbol of immortality onlyfavored more the choice as an auspicioustitle.The Phoenix was originally conceived for the purpose of giving outlet to campus opinion, but it also published short stories,poems and jokes. As a matter of fact, thepoetry has been the most significant feature of the magazine, due to the presenceon the campus of a number of promisingyoung poets, a few of whom are already beginning to receive national recognition.From the outset the publication has beenwell received. The first issue was completely sold out in four hours; the second,though twenty per cent larger, went in thesame time. The June issue of 3,000 copieswas sold to the regular students, ihealumni at the reunion, and the summerstudents. The Phoenix bids fair in the future to be an important factor in campuslife, and moreover to do a service in giving the students of the University a consciousness of themselves which critics ofthe institution say is lacking.NEW SHANTY SONG 297Shanty DaysU,..l i J- J* J j i.J J J- -fr i J.

Gilkey, elected toclass of 1921. Theother trustee electedat that time is Wi1-bur E. Post, Ph.B.,'01, who was electedto fill a vacancy inthe class of 1920.Since his graduationfrom the University,and from Rush Medical College in 1903,for over seventeenyears, Mr. Post hasbeen closely identified with the affairsof the University.particularly with thedepartment of medicine; so that his recent election comes,in a sense, as a recognition of long andvaluable service tothe institution.Wilbur E. Postwas born March 20,18 7 7, at Lowell,Michigan, the son ofLeander J. and EllaC. Post. After theusual preparatoryeducation in localschools, Mr. Postentered KalamazooCollege, Michigan,receiving the degreeof Ph. B. from that college in 1898. Hethen came to the University of Chicago,and after two years received the degree ofPh. B. in the pre-medical course. In 1903he was graduated, M. D., from Rush Medical College, and at once entered the practiceof medicine in Chicago, in which practicehe has since continued with marked succes;.Dr. Post is attending physician at theCook County Hospital and at the Presbyterian Hospital; he is associated in thepractice of medicine with Dr. Frank Billings. For some years, Dr. Post has beenon the Faculty at Rush Medical College,where he is now Assistant-Professor of Medicine. He is a member of the AmericanMedical Association, of the Chicago Medical Society, and of the Chicago Society ofInternal Medicine.On June 1, 1910, Dr. Post was married toLouise Chandler Morrison, of Springfield,Illinois. The family residence is at 5600Kimbark avenue.Wilbur E. Post has been called upon forspecial service on aWilbur E. Post, '01 number of o c c a s ■ions. In the summerof 1917 he was amember of theAmerican Red CrossMission which wentto Russia; he wasmade a major in thatservice. During thewinter of 1918-1919he was a member ofthe American Commission for Relief inthe Near East; thisCommission, ofwhich PresidentJudson was director,made a six months'journey throughEgypt, India, Mesopotamia and Persia,and rendered a mostimportant and detailed report on theeconomic and otherconditions in theNear East, especially in Persia.Dr. Post is amember of the DeltaUpsilon college fraternity, of Nu Sigma_.. — .. — .. — .. — ., — ., — „j, Nu medical fraternity, and of AlphaOmega honoraryfraternity. He holds memberships in theUniversity, the Union League, and theQuadrangle clubs. He is a member of theChicago Alumni Club, which club he addressed shortly after his return fromPersia, telling of his experiences on thatmission. As a trustee of the Universityhe merely enlarged the scope of his serviceto the institution he had already been serving loyally for many years.TRUSTEES 299* Harold H. Swift, '07—M^— »«—■■— ■ ■•— i at-^— a i — «— — n n ——in — — ■ »— - m n— ■ a— u n — — a *ftWhen the Class of 1907 looked about forthe right man to honor by electing himits president, one man, because of hisconsistently strong record in college, because of his democratic friendliness andpopularity, and because of his ever-readywillingness to assist in making successfulthe class functions throughout its fouryear.4 of activities, was unanimously elected.That man was Harold H. Swift. The '07Cap and Gown, in joking lines that in thosedays accompanied*„senior photographs,styled him "TheHam What Am";in the affections ofthe class, as provedby the election, hewas certainly "TheMan What Am.".Loyalty to the University, eagerness todo what he couldfor the institution,did not cease withHarold Swift'sgraduation. It simply took on a new,a more mature phase— working for theinstitution at large,and for the AlumniAssociation in particular. In 1914, theBoard of Trustees,recognizing his keen,continued interest inthe University,elected him to membership on theboard; so that forsix years he hasbeen able to renderthe University stillgreater, service bythe opportunities thus fittingly afforded. He is now serving on the Committee on Instruction and Equipment.Harold Higgins Swift, too, is a thoroughChicagoan, by birth and education, as welias in spirit. He was born January 24,1885, the son of Gustavus F. and Anna M.(Higgins) Swift. His father was thefounder of the great packing firm of Swift& Company. Harold Swift attended HydePark High School, Chicago, where he wasgraduated in 1903. In 1907, after completing his work in college, he entered the firmof Swift & Company, starting at a pointwhich enabled him to learn the businessthoroughly. Gradually he assumed largerand larger responsibilities in the business,and he now holds a most important executive position as vice-president. His business interests, however, have not been con-Harold H. Swift, '07fined entirely to the packing industry, buthave been extended to financial fields. Hehas proved himself a capable executive, withthat larger humanitarian interest that characterizes the successful executive in largemodern business institutions.In college, in addition to other honors,Mr. Swift was a member of Delta KappaEpsilon college fraternity, the Blackfriars,the Dramatic Club, and of Owl and Serpent.He holds memberships in a number ofclubs, among them being the Chicago,Union League, University, Chicago Athletic, and Quadrangle clubs. Withthese, he has servedon special committees on civic andsimilar affairs. Mr.Swift was a member of the AmericanRed Cross Missionto Russia in 1917 —the mission onwhich Dr. Post, '01,also served — w i t hthe rank of majorin that service. Ayear later he enteredthe army, obtainingthe rank of captainin the Personnel Di-vision, at CampSherman, Ohio.On several occasions the University has receivedimportant anonymous gifts that haveattested to HaroldS w i f t's generosity.His assistance in theorganization and ad-vancement ofAlumni interests, ex-tending over aperiod of twelveyears, has beenlargely responsiblefor the success of a number of alumni plans.This year, for instance, both the LocalClub and the Alumni Fund campaigns havebeen greatly assisted by him. We know heis averse to such "publicity" as this, butat least some passing recognition of hisloyal helpfulness should not now be setaside. That the alumni deeply appreciatehis continued interest is well shown bythe fact that in every alumni election inwhich he has been a candidate he has always received the highest vote cast. Evercourteously considerate, ever willing, notto do his share, but to do more than hisshare, it was truly "a lucky day," both forthe University and for the Alumni Association when Harold H. Swift chose tostand by Chicago in the selection of theUniversity he would attend.— na aajaTHE UNIVERSITt OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAthletics+• Ii«4The short and simple annals of the monthin athletics are easily disposed of. It hasnot been a particularly brilliant month, butit was all that could be expected under thecircumstances. With the ball team still inJapan, and only a weakened track team andan occasional tennis match, there has notbeen much of great interest.Probably the most important event of allthe year was the announcement of a two-game series in football with Princeton for1921 and 1922. The eastern school tookthe initiative in arranging the meeting, andDirector Stagg was quite willing for the in-tersectional strife. The first game will takeplace at Princeton next year, and the second in 1922 in Chicago. It is a distinctachievement to be added to those alreadymade by the "Old Man" that he has succeeded -in getting a home-and-home gamewith one of the "Big Three," where somany other middle-western schools havetried and failed.The ball club is doing fairly well in Japan,winning a majority of its games, but itcould not bring home an unbroken list ofvictories as did its two predecessors. Inthe first place there had not been sufficienttime for the team to get into the best ofshape, and in the second place there is theundoubted fact that the Japanese are muchimproved ball players. The scores reportedso far are: Waseda. 6, Chicago, 6 (12 innings); Keio, 0, Chicago, 1 (10 innings);Chicago, 5, Imperial, 0; Chicago, 4, Waseda,2; Keio, 3, Chicago, 3 (10 innings); Keio, 2,Chicago, 1; Waseda, 2, Chicago, 4; Waseda,2, Chicago, 0; Chicago, 3, Waseda, 1. Theteam is due to arrive in San Francisco onJune 30.Despite the best efforts of "Johnny" Johnson, the track team is more or less a collection of cripples. The conference at AnnArbor was a sad affair from the viewpointof Chicago, but the Maroons were not inshape. Charley Higgins scored 7 points,and that represented the sum of the team'stotal. Even Charley was in bad shape, abad shoulder keeping him from a certainvictory in the shot. The 7 markers camefrom a first in the discus, which he threw140 feet 8 inches; and a third in the hammer, and a third in the shot. Harris and Bartky were put out in the semi-finals ofthe 440. Speer qualified in the half, butMeehan of Notre Dame ran the final of thatrace in 1:54J"5, which is about three secondsbetter than the captain has even done in hiscareer. Speer simply wasn't fast enough.Otis, the real hope in the mile, had to runhis race in a driving rain, and the cold tiedup his legs, so that after the first quarterhe was not in the running at all. In shape,Otis would have won easily. Mooredropped out in the next to the last lap ofthe two mile — he was next to last in therunning then. Hall was third in his heat inthe 220 hurdles. With him, it is more of acase of lacking the build and strength thana question of condition. Jones and Kennedy were eliminated in the 880 tryouts.Despite the best efforts -of "Johnny" Johnson, who worked three times a day on Otisin an effort to get him into shape, and ashard on the other men, the Chicago teamwas not in the best condition. The badeffects of the indoor season remained.What next year will bring is uncertain — certainly it looks like one of the weakest teamsin years. No good weight men and fewrunners ;Higgins, Otis, Speer, Moore, Kennedy, Jones, all lost by graduation and onlyone or two freshmen in sight, is the cheerfulprospect that confronts the "Old Man" no^j.The conference tennis title was decided atChicago, May 27-29, with the Chicagodoubles team, Vories and Segal, winningthat event, and Wesbrook of Michigan taking the singles. Both Capt. Pike and Vorieslasted until the semi-finals of the singles.when Bastian of Indiana eliminated Pike^and Vories fell before Wesbrook. -Thfedoubles team really won its title in the firstround, when it defeated the Michigan ^tearn^of Wesbrook and Munz in one of the %esfexhibitions of pure fight that has been seenin years. Michigan had the first set, 10-8,and the second set 5-2, yet the Maroonskept coming, until finally Michigan crackedwide open, and the match went 8-10, 8-6, 6-4.In the various dual meets of the month theMaroons were successful, defeating Oklahoma, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin.Capt. Pike beat Wesbrook in the Alichiganmeet.M. V.

I had often thought of writing to myclassmates and friends in America, but Ihad not done so up to the present moment.I was a Class of '75. After having takenmy degree as B.

A shorttime after that, I entered English Government Service as a civil surgeon and remained in that capacity for ten years andresigned.

B., '75.Evanston, Illinois, April 10, 1920.The University of Chicago Magazine,Chicago, Illinois.Dear Mr. Linn and Associates:Twice within the last few months vouhave found it necessary to refute statementsoften heard, namely, that "Chicago doesn'twant undergraduates;" that "Chicago is notinterested as much in her undergraduatesas in her graduate work." Your attitude in this matter is, it seemsto me, right and praiseworthy. You arestarting a "counter-fire," and ask alumnito help "to squelch this anti-Chicago undergraduate propaganda." This is timely;let alumni all, as you say, "step on it." Ifor one have been stepping on it for eighteen years. You speak, furthermore, ofwhat the University does for undergraduates, her variety of courses, her clubs —Reynolds and Ida Noyes — her training ofathletes and the excellent results of thistraining; her care for the health of undergraduates, etc. All this is true, and shouldbe stated. You should be commended fortaking this definite step for our alma mater. So far, well and good.In one of your statements regarding thismatter, however, you, either consciously orunconsciously, come very near to answering your own query, "What is the matterwith the University of Chicago?" Yousay: "By all rights, apparently, the University should be an institution particularlyfor research," and add, "We are surroundedby state universities of great size and splendid facilities, whose chief aim is the training of the undergraduates." You realize, doyou not, that these two statements areenough in themselves to create the prejudice that exists against undergraduatework at Chicago? You can see, surely,that they are sufficient to create in a young,unthinking high school graduate, with nooccasion to investigate the facts, the veryimpression which that young man of whomyou tell — who "came by special appointment to consult one ' of the deans of theUniversity of Chicago on the subject of thechoice of a college" — had and so franklyexpressed. Even around the Universityitself, on the very campus, one again andagain hears made, by undergraduate andgraduate students both, such statementsas "This is a graduate school," "The emphasis here is on graduate work," "Chicago does not care for her undergraduatedepartment except as a feeder for her graduate schools," "The faculty has no interest in undergraduates and undergraduatework." If one hears these remarks withinthe halls of the University, what can heexpect from people at a distance, from people who have never seen the institution,who do not have the interest in her thatyou and the rest of us have, and who hearthe charges from the lips of those of "ourneighbors not altogether hesitant aboutspreading it?" Unlike the "young man"you mention, others do not come "by spe-(Continued on page 313)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEa}..—.. a.—..—..—,.—..—.,—.,—.—.,—..—..—,.—..—. .. .—.._,.—.._.._,._._._.—. ._— .a|a! School of Education Alumni Reunion jI ;5 „_, .,— „„ .„ aa ,.. aalaafa — VThe School of Education Alumni Association had its first reunion on Friday evening, June 11, at five-thirty, in Ida NoyesHall.The program committee, of which MissAlice Temple was chairman, set a splendidprecedent for future alumni dinners atcommencement time. Guests of the evening, kept constantly anticipating somethingdifferent, were greeted by stunts, and stunts,and more stunts, interspersed with songsbetween courses, solos, near solos, and hereand there a short snappy talk. Graduatestudents of the School of Education, including a long list of A. M.'s and Ph. D.'s, sangcheerfully a mournful little ditty entitled:We've been working in the Grad SchoolMorning, night and day.We've been working in the Grad SchoolXot to pass the time away.Then up came the Department of Kindergarten-Primary — many strong — with mysterious letters spelling out their branch ofthe College, and with catchy lines, as theyspelled, expressing their loyalty to AlmaMater. Followed then in due season theHome Economics group with a rousingsong.And of all the stunts possibly the mostfetching was a series of moving-picture cartoons: the Director dressed in outlandishregalia; the Dean represented as if he actually were a learned professor instead ofbeing what he is, a fine young fellow; S.Chester Parker grinding out a new textbook before breakfast or between meals ona week-end holiday; and Jerry — good oldJerry — the landmark of efficiency — even thecolored elevator boy, Zach, screaminglyportrayed. ... In short, one by one thedignitaries of the College were made to passbefore us, each speaking his appropriatepiece of wit and wisdom. Yes — you guessedit: the Art Department perpetrated themovies.And your scribe must say that the toastswere just what the alumni want to hear.President L. W. Smith's cheery word ofwelcome, Mr. Freeman's reminiscences of the early days of the present administration,Miss Roll's little toast in verse for the five-year-old class of 1915, Mr. Brook's ringingwords of prophecy for the class of 1920, andfinally Mr. Judd's eloquent tribute to theconstructive work which the alumni aredoing, carrying out in the field the scientificspirit of investigation they have learned inthe School of Education, — why, Mr. or MissAlumnus, those of us who were there aresorry for you. We can say, "Go, hang thyself, Brave Crillion," and what is the restof it, about: "We have had a great day, andthou wert not there." More than two hundred of us who were there urge you to thinkof the Stunt Banquet night at the Commencement of 1921 ; come and rouse 'em with us forthe School of Education and for the University.Review of 1919-20According to the constitution, three officerswere to be elected this year. A few minuteswere utilized in transacting the necessarybusiness. Mr. W. E. McVey, principal of theThornton Township High School, Harvey. Illinois, was elected first vice-president; AlissDelia Kibbe of the University ElementarySchool was elected secretary-treasurer, andMr. J. Anthony Humphreys, who will serveas principal of the Winnetka Junior HighSchool next year, was elected as a representative of the School of Education Alumni Association in the Alumni Council. The members of the Association are very much pleasedto have these enthusiastic alumni added to theexecutive committee of the Association.The executive committee last year undertook a very significant piece of work. A complete file of the alumni of the School ofEducation had never been compiled. Beforethe committee could do any very effectivework it was necessary to secure an up-to-datefile of its members. A secretary was securedwho has devoted a major part of her time thisyear to locating and classifying students whohave received degrees and certificates.

In thefirst place, news notes have appeared eachmonth in the University of Chicago Magazine.Letters have recently been sent to a largenumber of alumni members asking for suggestions concerning methods of making these reports more interesting and significant.

Chicago, we are glad to announce, is not alone a "sufferer" from somesuch experiences. Indeed, we occupyrather a strong position, compared toothers: Proportionately, our associationmembership is higher than the average;some of the complaints, at least in violenttemper, we have yet to receive; our variouscampaigns have been quite satisfactory;our magazine ranks among the best, bothin general appearance and interest; ouralumni organization is quite well developed; our later class organization is reallygood; our reunions are big successes; ourclubs hold good meetings; our loyalty andgeneral spirit is most creditable; and ourincidental troubles seem not so strikingor exceptional as they once did.We are, of course, a long way frombeing "faultless"; there is a great deal yetto be done. But this, we think, is a fairconclusion: Given still better organization,still wider co-operation among alumni,clubs, and classes, and a little time, andChicago will soon take its rightful placeamong the very strongest and leadingalumni organizations. A special report onthis Convention will be submitted to theAlumni Council in July.ALUMNI AFFAIRS(Continued from page 288)Further Word from OmahaMay 13, 1920.Alumni Association,University of Chicago,Chicago, Illinois.Dear Alumni:This has missed the "second post" butwe still want to tell you about the rousinggood time the Glee Club gave us duringtheir stop in Omaha. Beside having a well-worked-up program, the Club brought usin fresh touch with the University, something we sadly miss here.We would like to have such trips become annual affairs. It would strengthenour own alumni here and acquaint the greatuneducated public with our school. Wehope we will not be missed by any of thefaculty passing through Omaha. We havegreatly enjoyed their visits in the past, andhave attempted to carry out their suggestions.AFFAIRS 307Hoping that we will be able to send alarger number of recruits this fall,The Omaha Chapter,Nora MacDougall.Meeting of Milwaukee ClubAlumni Council,University of Chicago,Chicago, 111.My Dear Mr. Pierrot:The Milwaukee Alumni Club of the University of Chicago had an informal dinnerat the Hotel Wisconsin on the 7th of Mayat 6:30 in the evening, when we listenedwith a good deal of interest to Prof. Scottof the History Department, who was kindenough to run up from Chicago and giveus the latest gossip. While there was arather slim turn-out, due to a number ofother affairs coming on the same evening,we enjoyed listening to the jazz band inthe Badger Room of the hotel, where wewere forced to eat because of the waiters'strike excluding service in private diningrooms. We later adjourned to the ColonialRoom, where we listened for half an hourto a chatty informal talk by Mr. Scott anda very good letter from President Judsonwishing us success in our Alumni workhere in Milwaukee. We hope that next fallwe may be able to induce him to come upto see us if other duties are not pressingtoo strongly for his attention.Our annual fall and annual spring dinners will be the extent of our efforts forsome time in this city. With eleven subscribers to the Alumni Fund, totaling$600, we stand third in the country forthe number of subscriptions, exceeded onlyby New York and Chicago, and we aresure we are going to make this amount around $1,000. Considering the fact thata large portion of the sixty Alumni here inMilwaukee are teachers in the various highschools and colleges, it speaks mighty wellfor the University of Chicago loyalty whenconsidering the H. C. L. and the smallamount paid to most of our instructors.As we broke up, we all agreed that wefelt sure we could continue next fall withmore interest from those who had not attended any dinners yet in the good bondof friendship among the twenty to twenty-five who usually turn out.Before many years pass, we are goingto have a Milwaukee Alumni Club scholarship for one of the under graduates, MissMary Campbell is very enthusiastic overthis project and once the Alumni FundCampaign is out of our system we willturn to the idea with pleasure. Such ascholarship should be considered feasibleby all the Alumni Clubs scattered over thecountry.Yours very truly,(Signed) R. D.

Alumni Assn.,59th and Ellis Ave.,Chicago, 111.Dear Adolph:In connection with the recent annualSpring Meeting of the U. of C. AlumniClub, wish to advise that there were aboutthirty members present, which I considerquite a good number, considering the factthat there was nothing in particular to attract the members.Very interesting points were discussed.and from the Alumni standpoint, the following will be the basis for the new administration.It was thought advisable and acted uponthat in the future the Spring Meeting shouldbe held around the first of March, whichwill give the incoming officers an opportunity of becoming better acquainted withtheir duties, and better organized. In addition to the regular Spring Business Meeting, there will be a particular effort tohave perhaps a meeting in April or May ofa rousing nature — similar to the fall foot-hall meeting.It is also understood that the present ad ministration is going to work "tooth andnail" to increase the club membership toat least what it was under several verysuccessful pre-war administrations.Effort will be made to have more thanthese two large meetings — perhaps two orthree other noon luncheons, at which representative Alumni, perhaps from other sections of the country, would be asked to attend and address us.Every effort will be made to strengthenthe Alumni organization with a view of being of real assistance to and actually being felt by the LTniversity authorities.The officers who were elected for theensuing year are:Charles F. Axelson, president.S. Edwin Earle, vice-president.Harvey L. Harris, secretary-treasurer.Those elected to the Executive Committee are: J. F. Hagey, Tom Hair, V.

But I am heartily interested inChicago, and in every good thing she does.Moreover, I am perhaps in as good a position to speak on this matter as any otheralumnus. I have lived in, taught, studied,or visited practically every part of theUnited States during the last twenty years.In doing so, I have had occasion to associate with people of every class, in schooland out; to visit many universities, colleges and high schools; to talk with officials, teachers, students, and pupils. Indoing so, I have heard everywhere thesame opinion expressed, "Chicago is a graduate school;" she "is not interested in herundergraduates." I cannot give here thearguments verbatim that were submittedat such times to support the contentionsmade. They ran something like the following: Her big men do not teach lowerclasses; professors have no interest in actual teaching, but spend their time in research; young instructors or incapablePh.D.'s "hold" classes, but do very poorteaching; deans and professors are coldand indifferent toward lower classmen, notseeming to care whether you enter Chicagoor not, or whether you pass your work ornot; there is a general spirit of indifference, gruffness, and discourtesy on the partof officials, clerks, etc., in the various offices about the University. These andsimilar reasons were always presented tosupport the claim that Chicago is not interested in undergraduate work.Of course, our rivals spread some of thispropaganda; but it is also carried by persons who have studied in the University.Graduates of other institutions who pursuegraduate work; summer students; undergraduates sometimes, perhaps thoughtlessly; and even members of the faculty —for I have heard faculty members expresstheir sentiments in a way that could notbe mistaken — these are to blame for someof the impressions throughout the countryabout Chicago.I, like many other alumni, have refutedthese charges in the past; but they will notdown. If you will have the propaganda"stepped on." and stepped out for all time,you must begin with the campus, lecturehalls, and offices in the University itself.Sincerely yours,H. E. Smith, '03.

It was one of theneatest, snappiest shows ever seen in Man-del, and the alumni were certainly glad thatit had been arranged for performance at theReunion. It is hoped that each year sucha show can be given by the Senior Vaudeville Association as a regular feature ofAlumni Day. Much credit is due to HansHoeppner, '20, who practically brought thisassociation into existence and who managedthis alumni performance. The co-operationof all the performers is deeply appreciatedby the alumni. Charles Pike, '20, closed hiscareer as Cheer-leader by leading the audience in a good Chicago yell, and, withthe singing of Alma Mater, the 1920 AlumniDay was closed.The ClassesThe classes again gathered during the dayin their special tents, the Shantys, ofcourse, concentrating about their Shantyja maroon-and-white striped tent waserected by '07, as a permanent gatheringplace for that class. The class of 1880 helda Fortieth Reunion; four members returned, and, after a special meeting at thehome of Major Edgar B. Tolman, '80, at tended the general reunion. E. W. Clementcame from Tokyo, Japan, to attend thisclass reunion. The class of 1912 was againstrongly in evidence; on Friday evening.after the Sing, '12 held a Class dance andparty in Ida Noyes Hall, at which classes'10 and '11 were the guests. There were anumber of class parties, teas, and picnicsduring the Reunion Week.Special EventsThe "C" Dinner, Thursday, June 10, wasthe largest ever held. The new CampusClub held a successful dinner on Friday,June 11, at the Quadrangle Club; Jose W.Hoover, '07, J. D. '09, presided, and Professor Dodd gave an address. President Judson visited a moment and spoke a word ofwelcome to the club and alumni. TheAlumnae Breakfast at Ida Noyes Hall, Saturday, June 12, had a very large attendance;it was one of the most interesting meetingsof the day, and showed that the ChicagoAlumnae Club is indeed a very active organization. An article on the School ofEducation Reunion Dinner appears elsewhere in this number. On Monday, June14, the Divinity Association held a successful first annual Reunion Dinner at IdaNoyes Hall. Tuesday, June 15, the Ph. D.ig2oAssociation gave its annual dinner to thePh. D. alumni and the Ph. D. graduatingclass at the Quadrangle Club. And onTuesday evening the Law School Association held its Annual Reunion Dinner andLadies' Night at the Morrison Hotel, atwhich Judge George Fred Rush of the Circuit Court was the speaker.

The Alumni Reunion Register shows alumni from New York, NewJersey, and other eastern states, from California, Nebraska and other western states,from Texas, Oklahoma, and other southernstates, from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio,Illinois, and other middle-western andnorthern states. Of course there was, too,a very large attendance from Chicago andvicinity. Much could be said of the goodwork done by James M. Sheldon, '03, Reunion Chairman for 1920, by William H.Lyman, '14, Assistant Chairman, and byother members of the Reunion Committee.Reunion traditions were well maintained,and June, 1920, will long be happily remembered by many alumni.

D."A Pessimistic Carlyle-in-miniature"THE ICE LENS (Drama) $1.25 PostpaidTEN YEARS AT YALE (Essays) . . . 1.10 PostpaidTHE NEW FRATERNITY (Fiction) . . 1.50 PostpaidWe are bringing Mr. Gundelfinger's books to the attention of the readers of this particularperiodical because we have not only been assured in advance that the "advertiser's message willbe read," but have also been told that it will be read by "leaders in thought and action."Mr. Gundelfinger's books are not being read by those "loyal" and popular Yale graduates whoattend reunions regularly in order to indulge repeatedly in the degrading dissipations of theircollege days and who occasionally deposit a check in the Alumni Fund and then feel that theyhave done their hit for their Alma Mater, — But they have been read by several hundred "disloyal"alumni who .are doing their utmost for the salvation, betterment and progress of Yale even thoughthis involve the sacrifice of certain stagnant traditions which give the place that mellowness whichprecedes decay and in which the average graduate takes that pride which goeth before a fall.For a college or a university may encourage among its graduates a "loyalty" which is justas showy and unrighteous as was the "patriotism" of the German Empire. But an Alma Mater,like a Fatherland, may also have given birth to some sons whose thoughts are in advance of thoseof their easy-going brothers — sons who foresee impending calamities — sons who have salutarydreams, but who lack the courage which would bring them to pass — sons who are unconsciouslyawaiting the shocks that will arouse them into doing and daring.Mr. Gundelfinger's books were the shocks that aroused Yale. "The most sensational andamazing arraignment of Yale or any other university ever published." This trilogy has workedand is working regenerative revolutions at the university; they have been the stimulus behindand the prophecy before the Great Post-Bellum Reconstruction recently voted by the YaleCorporation.However, these books were not written for Yale men only; they were written because Mr.Gundelfinger went to college — not because he went to Yale. Despite the "distinguishing characteristics" claimed by various educational institutions, all colleges and universities are alike inthat they have the same faults irrespective of their peculiar virtues. Mr. Gundelfinger has concentrated on DEFECTS in the modern academic world, and it is for this reason that his booksshould be and will be read by "leaders in thought" at ALL places of higher learning in America.There is, to be sure, nothing new about his subject-matter; it is his unique style which makeshis books "conspicuous for their absence in the threadbare literature of education." Whetherhe uses the drama, the essay or the novel as medium, he not only courageously opens the shutters on those deplorable conditions which all thinking alumni have observed and pondered over,but he focuses the light in such a way that it cannot fail to inflame dormant thinkers EVERYWHERE and impregnate them with the activities of reform and reconstruction.Lack of space prevents us from reprinting here all the unsolicited endorsements, positive andnegative, which have been received from college presidents, officers, professors, alumni, undergraduates, editors and book-reviewers all over the United States, — but we will gladly mail copieson request.THE NEW FRATERNITYLiterature and MusicSEWICKLEY, PENNSYLVANIA(Exclusive Publishers of Mr. Gundelfinger's Works)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEHERCULESPOWDERS TheNitroglycerin WheelerNo baby tucked in its cushioned carriage ever had morewatchful care and skillful attention than the nitroglycerinwheeler gives the concentrated power carried in his rubber-fired wagon.Back and forth lie pushes it between the nitroglycerin storehouse and the mixing house. He follows a smooth plankedwalk made exclusively for his use. At one end of his tripthe buggy is filled. At the other he pours the nitroglycerininto a mixing machine by means of the long rubber tubeattached to the buggy. With this act he gives life andpower to Hercules Dynamite.Soon, before the breath of this modern Hercules, greatmountains fade away; rivers change their courses; waste andarid lands are changed to fertile fields; metals and minerals,all important in our modern life, are blown from the earth.The man with the nitroglycerin buggy plays an importantpart in supplying the enormous force necessary to producethe coal and other minerals and metals which are the pillarsof our material civilization. Look around you as you readthis. Wherever you may be you will find, if you trace itback, that dynamite made possible most of the necessitiesand conveniences on which your eye will fall.
