Subscriptions toward the cost,A Portrait of two thousand dollars, areDean Angell being received from the faculty and former studentsof the department of psychology. Anyalumni outside that department who wishto be counted in should send their subscriptions to Prof. Harvey Carr, Faculty Exchange, the University of Chicago. A dinnerto Mr. and Mrs. Angell was given in IdaNoyes Hall on June 15, at which PresidentJudson was toastmaster and the speakerswere Professor Michelson, Professor Tufts,and Mr. Angell.President Judson's convocation reportwas badly misreported by the Chicagonewspapers. In regard toSalaries salaries, he said that the in-and come from two million dol-Research lars more would be immediately applied to increasingthe general scale of pay. This is doublingthe increase of 1920, and means that thefaculty of the university, from instructorsto chairmen of departments, will be as wellpaid as those at any institution in the country. The exact scale, if determined on,has not been announced, but is said to befrom $1,800 a year for instructors on theirfirst appointment up to a maximum of$8,000 for full professors. (These figuresare entirely unofficial, by the way). In regard to plans for university expansion.President Judson announced a five-yearprogram calling for an endowment of tenmillion, and including an "institute of engineering" and an "institute of agriculture,"both special schools of research. The trendof belief at present seems to be that re search can be most effectively pursued inthe universities rather than by individualsseparately supported; the. cumulative effectof group-research, and the re-action ofteaching on research, both going by theboard when men are individually endowed.The University recognizes its responsibilityin the fields of research, and means to meetit by the new establishments. An analysisof the proposed plans will appear in theMagazine as soon as thev are published infull.A change in the admission requirementsis impending. A grade higher than theordinary passing grade byAbout the at least one-third of the dif-Admission ference between that gradeRequirements and one hundred will be required of all seeking entrance to the university; but this requirement will be modified by permitting students who pass a psychological test to enteron probation. The object of this modification is to get hold of sound-minded youngmen and women who wake up late in preparatory school to their responsibilities, orwho have been too handicapped by thenecessity of earning part of their waythrough school to get high marks. Justwhen the plan is to go into operation hasnot yet been announced; probably in theautumn of 1921. This arrangement joinedto the increase in tuition is expected toreduce undergraduate attendance to someextent, or at least to check the increase sothat it can be handled more effectively.During the past year Chicago had moreundergraduates than it had class-rooms for,or facilities for instruction, in some departments.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEHeadlinersof theSide ShowsPhi Beta Kappa of the University authorized this spring the election ot six menor women whose gradeswere B, but below the regular Phi Beta Kappa average, and who had distinguished themselves in the service of the University. Only three wereelected, two men (James Nicely and GeorgeSerk) and one woman (Margaret Haggott). That affords . an interesting lighton the relation of grades to so-called undergraduate activities. On the other hand,of the twenty-one marshals and aides appointed just before convocation, none fellbelow a scholastic average of B —, and allwere really "public characters." The mostunusual appointment, perhaps, was that ofMaurice Lesemann, whose poetry is becoming as well-known as are the athleticachievements of one or two of his confreres, and who runs true to poetic form bysmoking the gloomiest pipe on the quadrangles.This July number of the Magazine somewhat informally closes the year of 1919-1920. By the time the nextThe Year number appears, in November, the Council, Association,and the various committee plans will havebeen made, and the alumni work will againbe well under way. A glancing review ofthe Magazine for the year now closing willdisclose that in many respects it has been privileged to record the largest advance byfar in our alumni activities. The significantand successful starting of the Alumni Fund,the big development of alumni clubs, theimprovements in matters of arrangement,illustration, and variety of interest in theMagazine itself, publication and distributionof a large Alumni Directory, the strengthening of the alumni organization, both inthe Council and in the various Associations, the management of a successful reunion, these and other features reveal unusual activity and very marked progress.There is much, of course, that might havebeen done in addition; there is much thatwill be done next year, and in the comingyears; but 1920 will probably be accordedthe distinction of having laid the foundations — and, indeed, very firm foundations —upon, which a large, well-financed and helpful alumni association has been builded. Itis, of course, impossible to express personally to each alumnus or alumna who hasloyally contributed toward this development, the deep appreciation of the interestshown and of the support given to ouralumni endeavors that is felt by all AlumniCouncil, Association, Club and Class officers. A general expression of thanks mustsuffice — and it is gratefully given. We havehad a "good year"; but it is only a start,we recognize. We feel certain now thatwe are on the way toward that kind of success of which Chicago alumni are fullycapable.The Botany Pond and Hull GateCHICAGO A SPIRIT? 327Has Chicago a Spirit?By Howard K. BealeThat the University of Chicago has nocollege spirit is a matter of shame only tothose students who have not yet graspedthe real spirit of the University of Chicago.For the full understanding of that spirit arenecessary an analysis of the much-talked-ofcollege spirit and a comprehension of theelements that make up our own substitutefor it. For our University spirit is unique,and quite modern, indicative of the newfreedom of thought prevalent throughoutthe world.Other institutions and certain of our ownstudents fling out as acrid condemnation thecriticism that we have no college spirit.Then if asked to substantiate the statement, they enumerate our faults: We turnout in comparatively small numbers to University parties; our support of our athleticteams is poor; our yelling absurdly weak;none of the pranks, class fights, all-nightcarousals so numerous in the popular boys'books, find a place on our campus; wedon't haze freshmen, we welcome them.Are not such facts perhaps complimentary? Human nature is pretty generallyselfish. We don't go to basketball gamesbecause of college spirit, to support ourschool and our team; we go because weenjoy the game. We don't take each otherout at night in December for duckings inthe lake, as our Northwestern friends dowith such glee, because of loyalty to theschool; we don't have all-night rowdy fightsamong ourselves, for the glory of theinstitution; we don't beat our freshmen tillthey are half dead, and amuse the populaceat their expense, as our Illinois friends do,for the love of the college. College spiritmakes a fine-sounding, all-inclusive excusefor almost any kind of pleasure, noise orrowdyism. We don't make ourselves obnoxious boasting of our college spirit; weadmit we haven't any, and then go outand beat Illinois at basketball, track andswimming, all in one week. All this rah-rah enthusiasm suits high-school boys wellenough but in a university it seems ratherout of place and childish. i"">~ ict^v-The University of Chicago has createda higher, maturer sentiment of loyalty toideals, and a broad-mindedness of culture.Other institutions boast their specialty:Ames its agriculture; M. I. T. its engineering; Illinois and Purdue also their engineering courses which, of course, aresecond-rate besides M. I. T.'s; numerousinstitutions draw students because of well-defined religious tendencies; many appealsimply because of their "college spirit";Dartmouth brags of her winter sports. But Chicago is known not for one, but for thediversity of her specialties. These othercolleges rival one another; the college spiritof these institutions tends to narrow theirstudents' outlook in life. An M.I.T. mancan see no good in the classical educationof a Princetonian; and the Eastern culturalinstitutions look with equal scorn on theengineering of M. I. T. and the farmingof Iowa State. College life, then, becauseof college spirit breeds violent prejudicesamong the class of men that should be mostbroad-minded. But at the University ofChicago we are not wrapped up in collegespirit to the exclusion of all serious work,nor are we slaves to one interest in life.Students of this institution learn as theirgreatest lesson an unusual "breadth ofcharity." Within the quadrangles many interests are represented: One group isenough interested in athletics that it produces teams which rank with any in theconference, in spite of our lack of collegespirit; others plan and patronize an elaborate plan of class parties; another groupfinds greatest pleasure in classics, literature,the highly cultural; another element delvesinto scientific research with as much avidityas the rah-rah students use in entering theirescapades; yet another group is bound upin the business and political courses; medicine, law, and religion claim their enthusiasts. Each type recognizes the importance of the other fields; while each ischiefly interested in his own concerns, stilleach learns to recognize the other's viewpoint; the medical student is free to studyEnglish; the Commerce and Administration student, to study chemistry. But evenindirect contacts broaden one. The Chicago athlete learns that the Greek studentis human; the social light who is merelyafter general culture learns that the medicis interested in something besides cadavers.Contact between the sedate graduate andthe flippant young freshman is mutuallybeneficial. The verdant freshman getshazed at "college spirit" institutions; at Chicago he learns to breathe the atmosphereof great learning that circulates about themasters and the research laboratories. Theterm "high brow" and "grind" are not inthe University vocabulary.Similarly, intermixture of all races andstrata of society makes for a democracythat is a part of the University spirit. Chinamen, Japanese, East Indians, Russians,Turks, Africans, Filipinos, negroes, Mexicans, Americans mingle freely — yellow,(Continued on page 346)UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAlumni Affairs |Philippine Alumni Club Holds AnnualMeetingThe Philippine Alumni Club of the University of Chicago held its annual meetingin Manila, P.

The Executive Committee reported that they haveplaced the University of Chicago Magazinein the reading rooms of the University Clubof Peoria, and arranged for it to appearin the Peoria Public Library.This meeting was held at Bradley Polytechnic Institute, where an excellent dinnerwas served by the Head of the DomesticEconomy Department, who is one of themembers of the University of Chicago Club.After the dinner and the brief businesssession, the rest of the evening was spentin the Chapel, where Mr. Robertson gavea most interesting and instructive illustratedtalk on the beginnings and the progressof the University, together with some ofthe improvements of the immediate future.This Club is the first to see the slides showing the new Chapel.Peoria feels that this movement on thepart of the University, working through theAlumni Council, is one of the wisestplans which could be devised for drawingthe former students more closely to theirAlma Mater, and keeping alive their interest in all that concerns her. This can haveno other effect than to spread the influenceof the University abroad throughout theland.Those present were: Misses Irene Bunch.Dorothy Crowder, Lois Cutright, FlorenceCutright, Elizabeth Henry, Georgia Hopper, Ellen A.

The presence in Oxfordof students from every part of the worldaffords a wide scope for all movementsseeking to further international friendship,and this is especially the case in regard tothe British Commonwealth and the UnitedStates of America.With a hundred undergraduates drawnfrom all parts of the United States, and overtwo hundred from the various OverseasDominions of the British Commonwealth, inaddition to its ordinary membership, Oxford University presents unrivalled opportunities for useful work in this direction.The opinions expressed by a large numberof responsible men in all parts of theEmpire and America have confirmed thebelief in the possibilities which lie beforean institution of this nature.The membership at present numbersabout 200, and will be increased in thecourse of the next few months; it includesundergraduates from the United Kingdom,the Overseas Dominions, and the UnitedStates in about equal proportion. On November 29, 1919, the Earl of Reading (lateAmbassador to the United States) addressed the inaugural meeting of the Clubon the importance of British-Americanfriendship, and on February 20, 1920, Mr.J. W. Davis (American Ambassador toGreat Britain) addressed the second publicmeeting of the club on "The Treaty-making power in the United States."Groups have been formed within theClub which meet regularly during Termfor the discussion of, and frank interchangeof opinion upon, matters affecting the mutual understanding between the two peoples.The club has now started to develop thefollowing plans:1. To hold each term public and private meetings for the discussion of mattersaffecting British-American relations, andto invite prominent British and Americanpublic men to address such meetings.2. To establish and maintain connection with other universities in Great Britain, the Overseas Dominions, and theUnited States of America through groupsinterested in the same objects. (Two suchgroups have already been formed in theUnited States at the Universities of Cornell and Wisconsin.)3. (a) To take in suitable periodicalsfrom the United States, Great Britain andthe Overseas Dominions.(b) To form a library of books from the United States, Canada, Australasia andSouth Africa, particularly books dealingwith political, social and economic subjects, and to supplement this library byother books which deal directly or indirectly with questions affecting British-American relations. (A nucleus has alreadybeen obtained in the form of a gift of 200volumes from the American Library Association.)4. To maintain club premises. Premisesin an excellent situation have been obtained and will be available for use at thecommencement of the October Term.As a social organization the club will, ofcourse, be entirely self-supporting. But ifthe club is to extend its influence it mustdevelop its plans in various other directions: By keeping in touch with its pastmembers in all parts of the British Commonwealth and the United States; by maintaining a close connection with the clubsand groups formed in the other universities; by publishing addresses delivered before the club, and so making them available to a wider public; by the building upof a really comprehensive and representative library, and by the development ofother such ideas.To enable these developments to takeplace it will be necessary to obtain helpfrom outside sources, and with this end inview it has been decided to extend membership of the club to persons interestedin the movement. The annual subscription for such members is £l Is. ($5); lifemembership, £5, 5s. ($25). We hope,moreover, that persons who are able, andwho recognize the importance of this work,■ will help by special or annual donationsin meeting the expenses involved in thedevelopment and carrying out of theseideas.We fully appreciate the many demandswhich are being made upon people at thepresent time, and realize that many willnot feel able to give financial help. Wewish, therefore, to emphasize the fact thatwe shall greatly value any other assistancethat can be given, for instance by(i) Help in the collection of the libraryalready mentioned;(ii) Help in getting into touch with people or institutions who would be interestedin the work of the club, and who wouldbe able to assist in any of the ways heroindicated.We ask for the co-operation in one orother of the ways suggested above of allthose who have the cause of British-American friendship at heart.CHICAGOAN ;;:-!,The ChicagoanA Summer Paper IFrancis K. Zimmerman, '22The Chicagoan. a semi-weekly, university newspaper, made its first appearanceon the campus the first week of the summer quarter. The paper is published eachTuesday and Friday of the summer quarter and supplements rather than competeswith the Daily Maroon, which has neverbeen published during the summer months.The Chicagoan is published under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., with Francis K.Zimmerman, '22, as managing editor, andEdmund K. Eichengreen, '21, as businessmanager, both of whom have had previousexperience in newspaper publication.The services the paper renders the summer students are varied. First of all, TheChicagoan reports all educational and social activities of the campus. Cuts of theprominent lecturers and concert performers and of the various buildings areprinted from time to time. The paper endeavors to be a complete record or diaryof the events of the summer quarter.Articles of interest by many prominentfaculty instructors have appeared in eachissue.

Edmund K. Eichengreen, '21The state club of the summer quarter isto the social life of the campus what thefraternities and women's clubs are to theother quarters. It is the purpose of thesummer paper to aid the students in affiliating with their respective clubs, as wellas giving publicity to the clubs' activities.The paper is an asset to the administration inasmuch as it provides a mediumfor the communication of all official bulletins to the student body. Previously it hasbeen a problem to get the announcementsof the faculty before the students in asatisfactory manner.The Chicagoan prints reviews of the lectures by some of the more prominent visiting lecturers, such as Stephen Leacockand Amy Lowell, by competent critics. Itruns an Inquiring Reporter column, suchas may be found in the Chicago Tribune,to obtain student opinion on universityquestions, as well as giving them an opportunity of writing communications on anyUniversity experience. Articles are writtenoccasionally to acquaint the summer students, many of whom are graduates ofother colleges, with the life and traditionsof our university. In fact, every effort ismade to make The Chicagoan worthy ofbecoming a regular university institution.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEi iI News of the Quadrangles II ._,_„_„_„ „_„,_,. ,_„_„_, „ .,_„_,. a. a. a— aa na < +From the festivities of the Alumni homecoming and the numerous social events ofthe fraternities and women's clubs, theUniversity assumed the sombre, work-to-doatmosphere of the summer quarter in thespace of one short week-end. For thestudent who remains over from the springquarter the great and yet easily accomplished change in the type of men andwomen and the schedule of activities of thesummer quarter is a thing to marvel at. Toexemplify, the old weekly dances in BartlettGym and the Reynolds Club of the under-grad quarters are now replaced by the mostcomprehensive lecture schedule the University has attempted, and each afternoon at4:45 finds Mandel and Harper Assembly ascrowded as the afternoon informals of buta month or two ago. Instead of the roundof week-end Fraternity affairs, we now have"Know Chicago" trips to the Stockyards,Municipal Pier, Sears-Roebuck and otherpoints of interest. As many as eight hundred students have gone on a single trip.Social life is changed also. The unit ofstudent activities of the other quarters isthe fraternity or woman's club; the unit ofthe summer quarter is the state club, suchas the Southern Kansas, the Wisconsin, andthe Oklahoma clubs. It is the state clubnow that "arranges" the numerous beachparties, dances and receptions. Such are thechanges as they impress the undergrad.The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A.have been leaders in planning nice thingsfor the students. The Y. W. C. A. heldits annual Cloister Carnival on July 17, andmany new attractions were devised for thestudents. Dancing, side-shows and interpretative dancing were but a few of thefeatures of the evening. The Y. W. C. Ahas also given a series of receptions and"get-togethers" for the students. TheY. M. C. A. has been even more active than !t has in the past. Besides sponsoringthe newspaper, The Chicagoan, it has issueda valuable handbook of information for thesummer student, conducted the "Know Chicago" trips, and has established a very successful innovation in the weekly open-airvesper services held in Sleepy Hollow, justeast of Cobb.The University has planned an exceptionally good lecture and concert program.Stephen Leacock, the noted humorist, washere July 9 and made a great hit. MyrnaSharlow, prima donna soprano of the Chicago Opera Association, and Monica Graham Stults, with Walter Allen Stults, concert singers, have given successful recitalsin Mandel.Of those to come, Jane Addams, AmyLowell, Percy McKaye, Lorado Taft, FrankWakely Gunsaulus and Shirley Jane Caseare especially prominent.A series of dances for the benefit of theLTniversity Settlement are being given eachSaturday evening in Ida Noyes Hall andare proving very popular.In athletic try-outs, held at Stagg Fieldlate in June, both Wallace Bates, '23, andEdward Murphy, '22, placed in 100 and 220-yard dashes of the city track meet. Bothmen are expected to be consistent Maroonpoint-winners next year. Murphy won hisnumerals this year in five track events.I will close this "news-letter" with thesomewhat commonplace assertion that theregistration this summer is "the biggestyet." This announcement is made, it the beginning of each quarter and hascome to be expected as a matter of course.Raised tuition rates and more difficult entrance requirements seem unable to stemthe growing numbers that come each yearto the University of Chicago.Francis K.

InSeptember, 1919, the Board of Trusteesappropriated the income of $2,000,000 endowment toward increasing the salaries ofmembers of the faculties. For the budgetof 1920-21 the Board has voted the incomeof $2,000,000 more for the same purposeThe maximum which may be reached by aprofessor in the Faculties of Arts, Literature, and Science and in Education, it isbelieved, will be equal to that provided inany American university. For salary increases already made or authorized thesum of $4,000,000 as additional endowmentis needed.The new plans involve also the formation of certain institutes within the Graduate School, these institutes being devotedto conducting such research and such training in pure science as has an immediatebearing on the application of the sciences tothe industries. The Institutes proposed arethose of Physics and Chemistry, PlantAgriculture, Mining, and the Science ofEducation. The new plans call for additional endowment amounting to $7,000,000.and for buildings whose cost is estimatedat $1,250,000, a total of $8,250,000. Otherbuilding projects will bring the amountwhich the University needs to $10,000,000.David A. Robertson, '02, Elected Dean ofCollegesAt the annual meeting of the Board ofTrustees, Tuesday, July 13, David AllanRobertson, '02, was elected to the newlycreated position of Dean of Colleges. Sincehis graduation in 1902, Mr. Robertson hasbeen with the University in both a teaching and an administrative capacity. He isnow an Associate Professor of English.For fourteen years, since 1906, he has beenSecretary to 'he President, and from 1906to 1908 he was Secretary of University College. In 1913 Mr. Robertson was Secretary of the Association of American Universities. He is the Editor of the University Record, and the author of the volume, "The Quarter Centennial Celebrationof The University of Chicago," and of "TheUniversity Guide Book." No one at theUniversity has been more closely associated with Quadrangle affairs. For someyears Mr. Robertson was Faculty Representative on the Reynolds Club Board.

A year later he entered thepractice of law in Chicago, and soon became one of the leading lawyers of the city.From 1885 to 1908 he was senior memberof the law firm of Heckman, Elsdon &Shaw. As a lawyer Mr. Heckman becameprominent, in connection with widely noted cases, with the result that his services havebeen frequently enlisted in the arbitrationof labor controversies, in municipal, and,particularly, in traction affairs. He hasbeen keenly interested in obtaining forChicago a unified traction system. Hisbusiness ability naturally led to the extension of his work beyond the legal field;among other interests, he is a trusteeof the Ida A. Richardson Estate, anda director of theChicago Dock &Canal Company.A man of Mr.Heckman's character soon becomesan important factorin affairs for thebetterment of thecommunity. Since1888 Mr. Heckmanhas been legal adviser of the Art Institute, and a governing membersince 1890. For twoterms he was onthe executive committee of the Municipal Voters'League, and heserved as presidentof the Illinois CivilService Reform Association. He wasactive for man}'years in the publicaffairs work of theUnion League Club.of which club hewas president in1904 when the clubwas rebuilt. He is a trustee of HillsdaleCollege, and also a trustee of FrancesShimer Academy, at Mt. Carroll, Illinois.He holds memberships in the University.Quadrangle and Cliff Dwellers clubs, andin the Illinois and Chicago bar associationsand the Chicago Law Club. He is a member of the Delta Tau Delta collegefraternity.On November 16, 1881, Mr. Heckmanmarried Caroline Matilda Howe, of CherryValley, Illinois. His daughter, JessieHeckman Hirschl, was graduated from theUniversity in 1910, and is the wife of(Continued on page 347)Wallace HeckmanTRUSTEES 339J. Spencer Dickerson*.During the Winter Quarter of 1920 acertain personality, owing to a temporarybut serious illness, was compelled to be absent from the the Quadrangles. Everybodymissed him. A welcome post-card to theAlumni Office, however, soon stated that thispersonality would again be back early inSpring, exhibiting "as of yore" his "custo-. mary campus stride." The owner of thatwell-known "stride," which is again happilyin evidence on the Quadrangles, is Mr.J. Spencer Dicker-son, for two terms,1909-1914, and 1916-1919, a trustee, andsince 1913 Secretaryof the Board ofTrustees of theUniversity of Chicago. Few men,perhaps, have beenmore helpful in thestarting and the advancement of theUniversity, and certainly no man ismore familiar withits growth or moreclosely identifiedwith the work of itsBoard over a considerable period ofyears. This briefsketch, therefore, isa fitting close to theseries of biographical sketches of themembers of ourBoard of Trusteesthat has appearedin the Magazine thisyear.James SpencerDickerson was bornin Brooklyn, NewYork, April 9, 1853,the son of the Rev.James Stokes and Julia A. (Spencer) Dickerson. His father, a successful pastor of alarge Baptist church in Boston, came withhis family to Chicago in 1875, to becomeone of the editors of The Standard, thewidely-known Baptist paper, in which hehad purchased a half interest. J. SpencerDickerson was educated at Western University of Pennsylvania (now the University of Pittsburgh), and then entered hisfather's newspaper office, in Chicago, as aclerk. Upon the death of his father, soonafter, Mr. Dickerson rapidly succeeded tolarger responsibilities, and worked his wayup to the position of head of the paper.He was connected with The Standard from 1875 to 1914. The starting of the new University of Chicago received such supportfrom this paper that former President William Rainey Harper declared the institutioncould not have been builded up as itwas without the assistance of The Standard.Between 1892 and 1895 Mr. Dickersonwas managing editor of The Graphic(Chicago) and then of The Baptist Union.For years he has been a man of stronginfluence in Baptist affairs. He is a member of the executive committee of theBaptist World Alliance. A recent article,referring to his editorial work, stated that"It is probable that■*J. Spencer Dickerson*« no one man had sodecisive influence inthe formation of theNorthern BaptistConvention as he."A trained newspaper man andeditor, Mr. Dicker-son possesses in addition the qualitiesof a most capableexecutive. His deepand continued interest in the University, and the recognition of his executive abilities, led tohis appointment tothe highly important office of Secretary of the Boardof Trustees. Besides assuming thiswork, he has alsobeen serving since1913 as secretary ofthe Board of Trustees of the BaptistTheological Unionas well as of theBoard of Trustees ofRush Medical College.Like all men oflarge affairs, his attention and support have been often giventoward the advancement of various projects,especially of religious, of artistic, and ofeducational interest. He has recently beenVice-President of the Renaissance Societyat the University, and since 1900 has beentreasurer of the Eagle's Nest Association,that company of artists, authors, and professional men in the art colony on the RockRiver, noted in the biographical sketch ofMr. Heckman. As a member of the UnionLeague, Cliff Dwellers, and Quadrangleclubs, also, he has assisted in work of muchimportance in civic and educational progress.

A. athletes captured the honors in the Mid-WesternOlympic trials held Saturday at StaggField by placing 22 men in 18 out of the19 events. The Cherry Circle team scored68 points to 30 of their nearest competitors, Frank Cayou's I. A. C. aggregation. Feature performances were theshowing of Patasoni, the Indian, in the10,000 Metre run, Frank Foss' stellar markof 13 feet in the pole vault, Joie Ray's fasttime in the mile, and the hair-raising racein the 880 between Phil Spink of theC. A. A., and Tommie Campbell, formerUniversity of Chicago freshman, which thelatter won at the near-record clip of1.55 2-5.In the century dash Jack Scholtz ofMissouri, Howard Drew, the colored star,and Jo Loomis of the I. A. C. finished inthe order named. The time of 10 secondsflat was comparatively slow for these fliers.Massangale, another Missourian, createda sensation by copping the furlong from hisfamous running-mate, Scholtz. Emery,formerly of Illinois, but now running underCherry Circle colors, was the class of thequarter to the tune of 49 1-5. Butler ofMichigan and Bretnall of Cornell Collegetrailed him in.Joie Ray, the little Tri-Color demon, andPatasoni, the full blooded Indian fromHaskell Institute, were the stars of the distance events. Ray's mile in 4.16 was thefastest run in the country this year. Patasoni was the "dark-horse" of the meet, capturing the 10,000 Metre from a field ofdistance stars in 33.26 3-5.Tom Campbell, wearing the blue of Yale,trimmed Spink, formerly of Illinois, andJohnston of Des Moines in the half-mileafter a hard tussle most of the way. Theformer Maroon made a spectacular finishand broke the tape in 1.55 2-5.Frank Foss with 13 feet in the pole vault,Arlie Mucks, the C. A. A. giant with 43feet in the shot put, and Sol Butler thecolored star from Dubuque who captured the broad jump, were the shining lights inthe field events. Smith, C. A. A., in thehigh hurdles, Smart, C. A. A., in the 440 lowhurdles, Murphy, Notre Dame, in the highjump, and Husted, C. A. A., in the discus,were some other first place winners.The marks, as compared to those madein other sectional trials show conclusivelythat the Middle West contains the cream ofAmerican track talent. Some of the starperformances in the Eastern competition aswell, were made by men who hailed fromthe Missippi Valley. Noteworthy examples of this were the cases of FrankLoomis and Sherman Landers, the well-known C. A. A. fliers.The attendance at the Stagg Field gameswas well over 4,000 and the gate receiptswill go far toward defraying the expensesof Uncle Sam's team in its trip across thepond. Chairman Everett C. Brown of theOlympic Committee, Coach Martin A. De-laney of the C. A. A., and other notedtrack officials expressed themselves as ver}'well pleased in every way with the resultsof the tryouts.Coach A. A. Stagg commented on theresults of the meet. "The indicationsare that this section will be well represented on the American team that goes toBelgium. The winners will devote theirtime until the national meet at Cambridgeon July 16 to bettering their work. Whilethe Eastern marks were better than oursin several events, there were others inwhich we have a decided advantage, therunning broad and high jump and polevault."Sol Butler is a good man on the broadjump and Tohnston of Michigan will alsobe permitted to compete in the East. Scholzof Missouri and Drew ran against the windin the hundred yard and both made bettertime than they did Saturday. Mucks canput the shot and discus much farther thanhe did. On the whole, the results werevery satisfactory."M. V. Morgenstern.

Adolph G. Pierrot,Editor of the University of ChicagoMagazine,Chicago, Illinois.My Dear Mr. Pierrot:As a Danish student, I entered this, ourUniversity, in October, 1917. From anarticle by Mr. H. E. Smith in your Junecopy, I learn that some persons think thatundergraduates are not welcome here; frommy own experience as such I should indeednever have known it.On the contrary, the University hasgranted me scholarships as well as helpedme over periods of need due to the inflatedDanish currency. Furthermore, every dean,including our former vice-president, Professor Angell, that I have ever consulted onscholastic or personal matters has alwaysbeen glad to give me his good counsel, bothin his office hours and outside of them.As the deans have been, so has everyonebeen who has had any part in instructingme — from the heads of the departments tothe assistants; never have I had to ask invain for their advice in study matters, inquestions on general or specific deportmentin a foreign country, or in any other problem which has confronted me; this pertainsalso to a great many under whom I havenot studied. And that is not all. I havehad the further good fortune of having thusmade many personal friends. I may alsosay that every person on the office staffwith whom I have come in contact has always treated me cordially.The result of all of this has been thatinstead of the rather morose point of viewI had when I started here (due in partto a number of years of sickness), I havenow a natural one, enabling me to look forward upon life with hope of being able tomake a success out of it. Could any university have done more for any of its undergraduates than ours has done for me?I am,Sincerely yours,Harald G. O.

The general recognition of thisneed is leading to a demand for systematicand efficient co-ordination of all the agencies having to do with the training andadjustment of junior workers. If proposedextensions of this service are to be madeeffective, there is immediate need for thesetting up of practical demonstrationscovering successful administration of eachphase of the program. Such service canbe rendered best through the co-operationof groups of individuals and institutions.The vocational guidance department desires to contribute to such co-operativestudy of this problem.The School of Education offers twocourses in vocational guidance with theexpectation that they v/ill give to educatorsan overview of the junior employment situation and at the same time afford an opportunity to carry forward some detailedinvestigations. Candidates for advanceddegrees, who are interested in the work ofthis department, are advised to include intheir sequences courses having to do withlabor and employment problems. Suchcourses are available in the College of Commerce and Administration and in the departments of economics and sociology.Limited opportunity for field work is afforded through co-operation with local,state, and federal educational and socialagencies.Individual Instruction in MechanicalDrawingThe need for individual rather than massor class instruction in mechanical drawinghas long been recognized but practical difficulties have interfered with anything approaching general adoption of the plan.Instruction in shop and drawing subjectshas approached such treatment as closelyas has work in other branches of schoolwork but even here results have been farfrom satisfactory. The mechanical drawing department of the University HighSchool has set for itself the task of developing in detail the technique of individualinstruction in connection with the coursesrepresented. It has recognized the need for instruction which has to do with threetypes of learning — habit formation, association, and problem solving. The instructional material is so set as to provide forand test results in terms of these specificunits of experience. Such organization hasled to the development of a large numberof problem sheets intended to direct thethinking experiences of students. Theproblem and instruction sheets are supplemented by a liberal amount of referencematerial.A comparative strufy of results of instruction by the individual rathci than thesemi-classroom method indicates a markedincrease in both quality and" quantity ofwork done. Improvement appears to bequite general, affecting high- and low-grade students in approximately equaldegree. Experimentation during the present year has been carried forward withsecond-, third-, and fourth-year high-schoolstudents in classes as large as twenty-two.The results of this study are to be madeavailable.A Course in General Metalworking forJunior High-School StudentsOur second-year junior high-school students are being introduced to the significantmetalworking industries through a coursein generai metalworking. The laboratoryset aside for this work has a number offorges, a drill press, grinding machine,engine lathe, motor-head wood lathe, sheet-metal outfit, pipe-fitting equipment, somesteam engines, gas engines, electric motors,dynamo, switchboard, etc. Students jaretreated individually or in pairs. The workis controlled through the use of problemand instructional sheets and reference material is used liberally. A certain amountof freehand drawing is introduced as a partof the course.It is felt that the work carried forwardin this connection will enable the department to bring together material which willbe valuable not only for use in the regularlyorganized junior high school but also inconnection with the training of continuation school students. Next year similartreatment is to be extended to first-yearjunior high-school students through a general course in woodwork.NOTICES 343II Book NoticesBluff on Big Piney Fork of Gasconade, above Newtown, Pulaski County(In "The Geography of the Ozark Highlands of Missouri," by Carl O.Sauer, Ph.D., '15.

Has Chicago a Spirit?(Continued from page 327)black, brown and white men study together,think together. Long-haired Russians,Ghetto Jews, poor boys from the slums, andmillionaires' sons learn to live in sympathy.The words "dago," "chink," "nigger," and"greaser" are unknown. As ProfessorShorey once said, we would be surprisednot at the fact that the doctors of philosophy at a given convocation are "a negro,a widow, and a Chinaman," but at anyone'smentioning it.But perhaps the most unique element inour University spirit is our tolerance of allpoints of view, even the most extreme. Wereally practice the freedom of speech andthought which democracy teaches but rarelytolerates. Although the University wasfounded by a capitalist, even Bolshevikipreach their beliefs in its buildings; thoughit is a Baptist institution, Hebrews, Hindus,atheists, and Freddie Starr all preach theirdoctrines. An English professor who writesnovels about free love, and another member of the faculty, such an old-time Baptistthat his son can neither dance nor once ayear miss church for a fraternity picture,earn their living under the same roof.Higher criticism is undermining the religionof our youth, says someone. I believe it.Bolshevism is a menace to mankind, saysanother. Also true. Then why allow menwith such views to contaminate our youth?Because the University of Chicago believesm free speech for all. We often don'tagree; but each of us recognizes the other'sright to an expression of his views; eachof us realizes that even in the most radicalof teachings, in those most obnoxious toour personal ideas, there is some degreeof truth, and we try to be fair to all, toget what is good out of each view. Forthe University of Chicago believes that onlythrough freedom of thought and toleranceof all can "the truth that shall make menfree" be attained, and that truth is our aim.Is this new tolerance not greater than thenarrowness of tradition and sectarianismthat rules most colleges?A. proper mixture of the great culture ofa large Eastern University, the big, crudefreedom of the West, the democratic cosmopolitanism of a huge city seething with life,and the addition of an indefinable something peculiarly our own, an ideal balanceof all these opposing elements, gives ourUniversity of Chicago spirit. True it isthat we have no college spirit. We have tolive up to no foolish physical traditions,now that the Three-Quarters club is remodeled. Our traditions are ideals. Mostinstitutions merely grew; ours was made toorder. Most institutions are hampered bytheir past traditions handed down throughthe years, inherited from parent schools, orarbitrarily established by donors or founders. No such bondage is ours, for no stringswere tied to our endowment. Of courseTRUSTEES 347traditions of our ancestors revered through'generations are awesome, inspiring. But isit not greater to be the ancestors, the founders of the traditions? We students of theUniversity of Chicago are these foundersof traditions, not borrowed ones, but brandnew ones of our own making. I believe,in time, this new dignified university spiritwill prevail and the boisterous college spiritbecome a relic of barbaric ages. Our University of Chicago spirit with its many-sided interests, its broadness of vision, itstolerance, its democracy, its freedom, itsreverence of the truth, and its bigness,spreading a culture well poised between thehigh-brow and low-brow, between the reactionary and ultra modern, this true University spirit will live.[Editor's Note: This article appeared in "ThePhoenix" for June.]The Trustees(Continued from pages 338-9)Wallace HeckmanMarcus A. Hirschl, '09, J.D. '10. Mr.Heckman's principal recreation has beenlandscape work along the Rock River,Illinois, in the same locality in whichLorado Taft, Governor Lowden, SecretaryJ. Spencer Dickerson, and others are interested.The many and exacting duties devolvingupon the position of Counsel and BusinessManager of so large an institution as theUniversity of Chicago have always demanded the best in careful and constantattention, wide understanding, and soundjudgment. This Mr. Heckman has givenat all times, plus direct personal interest.He is an authority on university businessmanagement, and his work for the University has done much for its steady andsure advancement as well as its generalwelfare. J. Spencer Dickersonwas conferred upon him by Denison University, Ohio.On February 21, 1882, Mr. Dickersonmarried Fanny D. Richardson, of Chicago.Three children attended the University:J. Dwight, '06, J. D., '07, (who married AdaE. Walker, '11); Willard P., '14, (whomarried Harriet M. Tuthill, '14); and EmmaG., '16, who married Harvey B. Fuller, '08.Is it necessary to add that the Dickersonfamily is "closely related" to the Universityof Chicago?The best way to know Mr. J. SpencerDickerson is to come under the influenceof his kindly smile. Somehow, busy as heis, he can always find time to greet youheartily and with personal attention. Manyabout the Quadrangles frequently think ofthe Board of Trustees "in terms of J.

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 the 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.

From the momentwhen he begins to feed glycerin into the acidin the tank until the operation is complete thethermometer is his guide.It is important that the temperature of the mixture inthe tank be kept uniform. If glycerin is added toorapidly the temperature rises, 2 too slowly it falls.So with eye on thermometer and hand on valvecontrolling the glycerin flow the Hercules "N. G."maker follows the process minute by minute until itscompletion.To just such watchful care as this is the uniform highquality of Hercules Explosives largely due. The menwho work in the twelve Hercules plants realize theimportance of the great tasks performed by HerculesExplosives. As a result, wherever these explosives areused— in the building of railroads or highways, in themining of metals and minerals, to increase the crops ona farm or dig the foundation for a city hotel— theirgiant power is never found lacking.Hercules Explosives are always dependable— uniformin quality, high in power.HERCULES POWDER CO.Chicago St. Louis New YorkPittsburg.
