DECEMBER, 1920 No.+.— „-3-I Events and CommentBy James Weber Linn, '97■*The University is very large — almost ponderous. It is very successful — almost amazing. But it is neither so largeMerry or so successful as to haveChristmas become self-centered. It isstill aware that its value canbe estimated only in terms of the men andwomen it sends out — in their love, in theirconfidence, in their accomplishment. Almost wistfully we at the University wishyou of the Alumni, you who are no longerpart of our daily life, a Merry Christmas.How are you all? Kow is the Christmasspirit in these days of a world-trial so hardto anticipate? Harding's election suit you?Children well and happy? Come back andsee us, won't you? No, we can't stay. Justdropped in to say God bless you!The Undergraduateand IdeasThe American Association of UniversityProfessors is puzzling over the problem ofinteresting undergraduates inideas. The students pay reasonably close attention in theclassroom, but after leavingit what do they talk about?The problems of political economy, ofeighteenth-century literature, of sine andcosine? The Association has its doubts. Itdoubts also whether, aside from the subjects studied in the classroom, undergraduates care enough about the general problems of life. Even the question of theLeague of Nations apparently failed to stirthem to intellectual and moral excitement. In Europe most radical movements seem toflourish among the students at the Universities. In America the Universities areabout as placid as the grades.At Chicago the discussion has for themoment, and for convenience in approaching the subject, centered on the system ofgrades. It has been felt that when a student knows that he will receive one of ninedifferent grades at the end of a course, hecenters his attention too much on whichone it will be, and too little on the problemof what intellectual training the course cangive him. It has been proposed, therefore,that the grades should be published only atlonger intervals, so that a student shall onlybe aware that he. is at least up to the standard of the course, or not as the case may be.The change would probably be beneficial.But as long as youth delights more in actionthan in meditation, and as long as the average American family remains, as it is now,a believer in what it calls practical education, but not warmly hospitable to ideas"for their own sake, there is not likely tobe much change in the general undergraduate attitude. If he thinks — as law and medical students think — that what he is studying will have some direct bearing on hislife after he leaves college, he will make ita subject for talk with his friends aroundthe chapter-house fire, or in the Sixty-thirdStreet restaurants. If not, not. And ifhe believes that the object of education isnot to become acquainted with new points45THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEof view, but to get on in life, he will conduct himself — about as he does now.Wanted —A Homecoming DayThe June convocation brings Alumni Day.That is as it should be. But don't we wantanother day, some time inthe year, for the Alumni? Orperhaps two days — say a Friday and a Saturday? On Friday, the returned wandererscould go to classes. It may have been yearssince you heard Mr. Salisbury snap out"necessarily NOT?" or seen Mr. Tufts smiledown the clogged avenues of the ethicalapproach to life at the ideal whence theystarted; or assisted at the friendly autopsiesperformed by Mrs. Flint over the body ofsome theme which began life so enthusiastically at two a. m. the night before.How would you like to look on again atthe pageant of the intellectual day? You'reright; you would. And on Saturday, wouldnot the undergraduates, in a show or agame, interest you as much, perhaps evenmore, than the procession of the scholastic-ally elite in soul-smothering garments? Ahome coming day would not detract fromthe attendance at the Alumni reunion. Itwould add to it. A man who buys candyonce is more, not less, likely to buy it asecond time. "This is the most successful unsuccessfulseason," said Bob Harris of the 1907 team,"Chicago has ever had." ThatA Word is it; all said. We lost fouron Football games. One, the Michigangame, the men played stod-gily; they couldn't find their snap. Theother three were as fine exhibitions of spiritunder difficulties as any Chicago team, inany year, ever showed. This goes for 1905;ask Meigs if it doesn't. Whether the long,long list of accidents was due wholly tobad luck or in part to bad management, wehave no idea. At any rate, we never hada back field twice alike, or within forty percent of what we had a right to expect; andin spite of that fact the men played rightto the level of the best of the conference.7-6; 3-0; 3-0. Those were the scores. Givethe team back Cole, Crisler and Hanisch;take out of the other group in the conference any comparable three, and Chicagowould have walked in, nobody second. Maybe Minnesota had harder luck — certainly,at least, we are in a position to sympathizewith her.If you want to know what team formany years most commanded the admiration of those who like football, ask anyundergraduate.The Classics CornerDivinity Halls on the rightALUMNI PUNU 471 — UB— nn— —110"— -HI—Wmk1' , The Alumni FundA year ago there was no such thing inour alumni affairs as an Alumni Fund. Forsome years the starting of such a fund hadbeen under consideration by the AlumniCouncil, but conditions always seemed toarise that necessitated postponement of anydefinite action. Just before the war a special committee had gone into the mattervery thoroughly and plans to start a fundhad been prepared, but the outbreak of thewar again compelled postponement. Abouta year after the war ended the AlumniCouncil, believing that only by the establishment and the steady growth of anAlumni Fund could our fullest and mostuseful development be attained, again tookthe matter under consideration. It was atfirst thought that perhaps the time was notreally_ opportune because of the doubtfulconditions following the war and the various financial demands made upon many forvarious purposes. But, as the news came ofthe activities of Harvard, Yale, Cornell,Kansas and many other alumni groups, forsums far in excess of anything we wouldbe planning to raise, the Council was convinced that "now was as good a time asany to make the start." Accordingly, aspecial committee investigated matters,made a report, and preparations for a "campaign" were made.In December, 1919, the campaign wasstarted. So far as details go, or intensivedriving, it was not conducted along the linesof campaigns carried on by other alumnigroups. Except for three or four occasional meetings, there was no direct "personal pressure" brought to bear; the campaign was largely a matter of two generalcircular letters, one in December, 1919, andone in April, 1920. That was the extent ofthe work undertaken, in the main. The"idea," however, was started, and the response from alumni was gratifying.A year ago, to repeat, there was no fund;today an Alumni Fund exists in fact. OnDecember 1, 1920, as to subscriptions, therewere 547 Life Memberships, 112 SustainingMemberships, and 24 Endowment Memberships, a total of 683. The total of subscriptions on December 1, 1920, was $86,273.Although payments were arranged on theinstallment plan over a period of five years,over forty per cent has already been paidin, and the fund had on hand, December 1,1920, the total sum of $41,350. It is interesting to note that for some months past subscriptions to the fund have, been coming in at the rate of about three a week. Certainly this state of affairs is a great advanceover the situation a year ago. Becausethere is a charge for the magazine andyearly association dues against each subscription, the fund is not yet able to operateto its fullest extent. However, as the fundincreases, and subscriptions become paidup in full, it will be able to prove its usefulness as opportunities arise.For those who have not yet subscribedthe opportunity to do so is always open;for those who have subscribed, we urge theprompt payment of installments as they falldue.Under the articles governing the AlumniFund, adopted by the Council and publishedin the magazine last year, the first Boardof Directors was elected at the regularmeeting of the Council October 21, 1920.The Board is now constituted as follows:For one year: Alice Greenacre, '08, J.D., '11 and James S. Riley, '05.For two years: Frank McNair, '03,Ernest E. Quantrell, ex-'05 and Thomas J.Hair, '03.For three years: Shirley Farr, '04 andRuth Agar, '14.For four years: James Weber Linn, '97and Harold H. Swift, '07.Five of the directors are from the AlumniCouncil and four are from subscribers whoare not members of the Council. Mr. Rileyis in Los Angeles; Mr. Quantrell is in NewYork; the remaining directors reside inChicago. Thus it will be noted that representation on the Board is distributed as toclasses, men and women, and geographically.The first meeting of the Board was heldNovember 8, 1920. Frank McNair 'waselected Chairman of the Board. The pastyear was reviewed and matters concerningthe investment of the funds were discussed.The Chairman was authorized to employan auditing concern to audit the books ofthe fund. The same firm which audits thebooks of the University has since been employed on this work and a report of theauditor will appear in a later issue.Nothing in the history of our alumniwork has been so important as the startingof this fund. Today we have a fund wellestablished, alumni everywhere know thatat any time they may join under the plan,an organization for governing the fund hasbeen created, and the whole structure of ouralumni affairs has been placed on a lastingfoundation.THE UNIVERSITY OFj1 AlumniNotice of Chicago Alumnae Club ChristmasLuncheonThe Chicago Alumnae Club will hold itsChristmas luncheon Wednesday, December29, 1920, at 1 o'clock, at the Chicago CollegeClub.

Swift,Chairman of Alumni Club Committee,Chicago, 111.Dear Mr. Swift:I am glad to tell you that the enthusiasmof the Sioux City Club is efficient and practical. Through the work of the membersthis summer we were able to send to theUniversity fifteen of our highest grade highschool graduates in addition to severalothers from the local high school and highschools in the surrounding territory. Wehave developed a definite trend toward theUniversity of those students who desire thebest that can be obtained in University workand life.To maintain this enthusiasm we havemonthly luncheons which are well attended.In addition to the monthly luncheons weare planning to have a banquet or a dinner-dance during the Christmas holidays whenthe present students are home on vacationand a banquet or dinner-dance on AlumniDay, June 11.We shall be very glad to receive President Judson's report, as this will enable theclub members to keep in touch with theactual work of the University today andto talk intelligently about this work andthe plans for the future.Yours for Chicago,C.

W.Savidge, 2228 Maple street, Omaha, is president, and John Brotherton, Turner Court,Thirty-first and Farnam, Omaha, is treasurer, and Katherine S. Lentz, secretary.We were very fortunate in having withus at our last meeting, November 4, Professor Coleman and Lorado Taft, who werein Omaha to address the Nebraska StateTeachers' Association. The meeting tookplace at the Commercial Club and was aluncheon at which our local members andseveral out-state ones were present. Dr.Coleman and Mr. Taft very kindly addressed us and gave us many interestingfacts and statements concerning the growthand progress of the University. These wereespecially interesting to those of us whohave been unable to get back to the University since our graduation. We wereindeed sorry to hear of the resignation ofsome of the important men there. Because of the brief space of time which manycould spare for our meeting, very little business was transacted, but we plan on ameeting for shortly after the holidays, whichwill be purely business in nature.I have only today learned that JamesWeber Linn is to address the Fine ArtsSociety here shortly. .Though it is too lateto arrange anything for him, we hope atleast to hear him and to have a few minutes'conversation with him.I shall send a detailed report of our nextmeeting.Wishing you and the Alumni Council ahappy Yuletide season and with kindest regards for the New Year, I am,Very sincerely yours,Katherine S.

The school of 224 members in1917 has increased to 659 students this fall.Classes have overflowed from Cobb to Harper, Rosenwald, and even to Classics. Andwith this increase the numbers of the facultymembers and of the courses offered havegrown apace. The teaching staff now hasforty-two members, an increase of fifteenover the staff of last fall. The philanthropicservice division has been combined withthe School of Civics and Philanthropy asthe Graduate School of Social Service Administration, also under Dean Marshall.The opportunity thus afforded may be ofdirect interest to alumni.Another thing which Commerce and Administration alumni will not want to forgetis the file of fugitive material in the Commerce and Administration Library. Thepamphlet collection contains statistical information relative to all phases of businessand the labor problem. It includes itemscollected from innumerable sources. Tothose interested in advertising the libraryoffers the use of its large collection ofclipped advertisements covering about 1,000firms and trade names. This is made easilyaccessible by a subject index. Graduateswho have become editors of house organscan secure sample collections from these files, to be used as a basis for their studyEvidence of the value of this service ifound in the continuous use made of it b;alumni and business men.The Commerce ClubAn organization in the School of Commerce and Administration which is undoubtedly new to some of the alumni is th.Commerce Club, open to all C. and A. students. It attempts to amplify the studentsopportunities and offers them some of thithings which class work does not give. ThiCommerce Club was organized in the spriniof 1919. The idea "took," and in the falof 1919, less than six months after it:formation, the club had a membership o250. This fall the records show a list o427 paid members.The Commerce Club is performing several real functions on the campus. Thes<are stated in its Constitution as: First, t(foster friendly relations and to promotifellowship among its members; second, tcguide its members in vocational selectiorand to heighten professional spirit througlcontact with the business world and thifield of philanthropic service; and, third, tckeep in touch with the alumni of the Schooof Commerce and Administration and secure the benefits of their friendly co-operation.The big field of the Commerce Club lie:in performing the second of these functionsProminent business men are secured to tallto the club as a whole on general busines:subjects; and discussion groups have beerformed for study in specialized fieldsThrough these meetings, discussion group:and field trips the club attempts to bring it:members into touch with the outside business world. The students obtain the practical viewpoint of business men which i:sometimes easy to miss in a course largel]made up of theory.In carrying out the social program thiclub gives teas for the girls, vaudevillismokers for the men, and dances for th<entire club at intervals during each quarterThe Commerce Club desires to establislco-operation and a closer contact with thialumni of the School of Commerce and Administration. Alumni who have beet"through the mill" and who are in the worl<of business should have much of interesand value for students who are now "in thimill." Several plans are now under wa;to develop and foster alumni relationsTentative plans are also being made foa dinner sometime during the month oJanuary. C. and A. graduates will heamore about these plans in a letter and booklet to be sent out soon.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEj The Chicago-Wisconsin Game of 1950I By DONALD R.

Then came thethought — perhaps the ouija board will tellme whether we will beat Wisconsin. Imight as well know the worst now if we aregoing to lose, and if I find out we are goingto win I can cheer up the alumni nextWednesday. So I took down the well-known board, placed my fingers on thelittle table, closed my eyes and invoked thespirit of my favorite Indian guide, whocalls himself Moonshine. For a few minutesnothing happened. Then suddenly the tablemoved under my fingers. I had a sense ofbeing carried along with it as though sitting in an airplane. Time as well as spaceseemed to flow behind me. Then a greatroaring sounded in my ears — I opened myeyes — and this is what I saw:The GameI found myself seated in a huge grandstand which completely encircled a footballfield. I was about forty rows up from thefield and behind me there appeared to beat least one hundred rows of seats. Infront of my seat was a magnifying glassset on a revolving standard. Lookingthrough this I could see quite distinctlythe faces of men on the field below me. Ilearned afterward that the power of theseglasses increased row by row so that eventhe newspaper men who occupied a cage atthe very top of the grandstand could recognize the players and nearly always couldtell who was carrying the ball.A large man in a fur coat sitting besideme said: "Pretty good seats for $50, aren'tthey? Only two rows back of the $75seats."I looked at the tremendous crowd thatfilled this super-Coliseum and cried out tohim:"What do they do with all the money?"He looked at me with amazement."Do with it?" he repeated. "Why thisis what supports the University. Twoyears ago they paid off the last notes ofthe Rockefeller Foundation Mortgage. Sincethen they have floated a hundred milliondollar bond issue by giving a first lien onthe football receipts of the next twentyyears to provide for interest and sinkingfund. At the present rate, the bonds willall be paid in ten years, besides the regular payment of the annual University deficit.Just then a dazzling artificial light wascast over the sunless field and a long fileof men clad in white marched from one goalpost to the other, while the crowd applauded vigorously. •"Those are, the officials," said myneighbor. ,"There must be nearly a hundred," I exclaimed.."Only sixty-six," he replied; "three foreach player. They are all needed under therevised rules of 1945.""Nineteen forty-five!" I shouted. "Whatyear is this?""Why it's 1950," said he, looking at mesuspiciously. "Where did you come from,Mr. Rip Van Winkle?""Oh, I just dropped in from 1920," I answered, and we laughed together as thoughit was a great joke.The white-clad officials scattered now totheir stations around the field, making itlike a great piece of green polka-dottedsilk, shimmering in the glare of the whitelight thrown upon it. Somewhere a hugeband began to play and a phonographicdevice, which I could not locate, carriedthe sound all over the auditorium. Theentire audience began singing "He's a GrandOld Stagg," and a little red automobile ranout from the sidelines into the center ofthe field.I stared through my magnifying glassand saw, sitting on the back seat, elevated alittle above the driving seat — Amos AlonzoStagg! He had snow white hair and whiteside whiskers, but otherwise looked verymuch as he did in 1920. The amphitheatrecrowd stood up and a hundred thousandhats of both men and women came off withthe roar of the last line, "Take off yourhat to Old Man Stagg!""Does he still coach Chicago?" I shriekedabove the racket."Oh, no," shouted my companion. "Since1935 he has been President Emeritus of theWestern Conference and Chairman of theBoard of Conference College Finances.That's why he^ wears the side whiskers.They qualify him for membership on theFederal Reserve Board. His most important work, however, is devising the changesin the rules year by year that keep the gameinteresting._ There was a lot of talk abouthis losing his cunning a few years ago. Butin the winter of 1944 Dr. Putinski, thefamous Polish surgeon, gave him a new setof monkey glands. The next season Staggbrought out the single-hand carry whichGAME OF 1950 5:has revolutionized the game and made itmore popular than ever.""The single-hand carry?" I repeated."Wait and you'll see, Mr. Van Winkle,"said my friend. "I'll explain the game toyou as it goes along."The electric score boards placed on foursides of the field suddenly flashed the word"Wisconsin" in cardinal light, and from thenorth entrance to the field from under thegrandstand the Wisconsin" team, two hundred strong, marched in military formation,eleven men abreast, to their seats across thefield from w,here I sat. The din whichgreeted them had hardly subsided before thescore board flashed "Chicago" in marooncolors, and the Midway players marched infrom the south entrance. Neither team indulged in any practice evolutions whichwould in fact have appeared difficult in viewof the number of officials on the field.In a few minutes the teams lined up forthe kick-off — in formation similar to thatused in 1920. The football itself was stripedblack and white, which made it more visiblethan in old days, particularly as an officialwiped it off after every play.Wisconsin kicked off. The Chicago fullback who caught the ball took it in hisright hand before he started to run. Thecardinal players made no effort to tackle himbut attempted to seize the ball or knockit out of his hand as they broke throughthe players protecting the runner. Just asthe Chicago fullback seemed about to losethe ball he hurled it. forward to anothermaroon, who caught it in both hands,whereupon the play stopped.As the teams were lining up my companion explained the play to me."You see," he said, "as soon as a man hastwo hands on the ball the play stops — except when a kick is caught. Then thecatcher can run after he takes the ball inone hand. But on a pass you must make aone-hand catch or else the ball is down.""But how can a man catch and hold thatball with one hand — and run with it?" Iasked."Well, you are a Rip Van Winkle," wasthe reply. "This ball isn't made like theold ball. It's thinner and a little softer. Aclever player can catch it and hold it easilyif it isn't thrown too fast. But it can beknocked out of his hand, and that's dangerous.""Crisler had a hard catch on that swiftpass. I think he was wise to use bothhands." j"Crisler?" I said."Yes, the man Palmer passed the ball to.Now watch this first play. I'll bet Coletakes the ball.""Crisler, Palmer, Cole," I muttered. Butmy friend was watching the players intently through his glass.The teams lined up about as they used to do in 1920, except that the center held th<ball high above his head in both handsWhen the signal was given he tossed it baclwith one hand, either to right or left, butwithout looking around. On the first pla}the ball was caught by the quarterback, whcran straight to the right. The right encrunning back picked the ball out of th(quarterback's hand and ran back towarcthe left a few yards, then he whirled ancthrew to the quarterback, who made ibeautiful one-hand catch, but had not takera step before a- Wisconsin back seized thiball from his hand. A roar from the Wisconsin sections ended in a groan as thiWisconsin man fumbled and the Chicagcquarterback fell on the ball.The score board flashed the sentence"Chicago gains 20 yards gross." As thiplay stopped ' several officials gathere<around the ball, evidently comparing notesIn a few seconds the white clot of official:dissolved and as the teams lined up agaiithe score board flashed, "Chicago gain:18J4 yards net."Another cheer came from the marooisections."Pretty work — pretty work," yelled m;neighbor. Then seeing my puzzled faohe explained the scoring to me."There is a foul watcher for each playerand there are one hundred and twenty-thre-rules which carry various penalties of fronone to twenty yards. After a complicate.scrimmage such as that one there werprobably several penalties on both sidesThe penalties on each side were added together and the difference being againsChicago was subtracted from the Chicago'score."I said: "I don't see how the officialcould work out such a thing so quickly,and my neighbor answered: "Oh, they arall graduates of a special course in footba'penalty accounting. They calculate ver;rapidly.""What are the other officials for?"asked."Well," said he, "there are twenty-twtimers, one for each man. To prevent overexertion each man is allowed to play onla total of forty-five minutes in the hour ana half allowed for the game. But whenman is out of the play, he waves his hanand his timer, who has a stop watch, stophis time until he goes in motion again. Yowill notice the fullback on defense wavefor his time out as soon as the play stop.If you watch you will see other men wavinand standing still as soon as they are surthey can't help in the play.""That seems a silly idea to me," I e>claimed."It does seem silly," said my friend, "bithe Anti-Brutality Society was going thave football legislated out of existence(Continued on page 66)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEViews of Other UniversitiesOhio State University .*IThe ArmoryThe two views presented here (the third in our series of views of other universities), show two important buildings of Ohio State University. Ohio State University,at Columbus, is one of the largest universities in the country, now ranking among thefirst ten. Within the last six years this institution has grown from 4,395 students,not including the summer school, to around 8,000 students, summer school againexcluded. With this doubling in attendance has also come a great increase in services rendered to the state and in general educational importance and influence.OF OHIO STATE UNIVERSITYThe LibraryThe Armory serves, as frequently with such buildings at state institutions,both as an indoor drill ground and as a centre for large affairs. It is an imposing building. It also serves as the place for the annual dinner at Alumni reunions.At present there is a campaign on, conducted by Ohio State alumni and theuniversity, to raise approximately $1,000,000 for an athletic stadium, the capacity ofwhich is to be about 60,000.The Library is one of the more recent buildings at Ohio State, and is one of thelargest and finest structures of its kind. Like most universities Ohio State University is also rapidly outgrowing its present accommodations. Last year 816 degreeswere conferred by it. Its general service is being extended rapidly in manydirections.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEUniversity Notes iHarper Memorial Library Entrance — a detailThe University LibrariesAccessions to the University of ChicagoLibraries were 40,615 in 1917-18 and 30,271in 1918-19, according to the new biennialreport by the Director. The number ofreaders in the General Library for 1917-18were 566,677; and for 1918-19, 459,175. Forthe various large departmental libraries nostatistics of attendance are available, withthe exception of Classics and Education.The former had 38,120 readers in 1917-18,and 33,205 in 1918-19; and the latter duringthe same periods had 233,783 and 198,362respectfully. The total number of accessioned volumes in the University Librariesis 570,849.Among the interesting gifts to the Libraries have been a letter by Mendelssohnand the proof sheets of the oratorio Elijah,with corrections in the composer's ownhandwriting — both given by Dr. Frank W.Gunsaulus, president of the Armour Institute of Technology. Dr. Gunsaulus hasalso made some very valuable additions tothe Eugene Field Collectipn of manuscriptsand letters. Other gifts include those of thelaw library of the late George MorrisEckles, some 750 volumes, and the CharlesR. Henderson library containing over sixthousand items.A notable new development is that of thedepartmental library of the School of Commerce and Administration, containing 300periodicals and trade journals and 1,000organs representative of individual businesshouses. Proposed Unitarian House at the UniversitySenator Morton D. Hull of Chicago, whois chairman of the board of trustees of theMeadville Theological School, has given tothat school a building site at the corner ofWoodlawn avenue and Fifty-seventh street,Chicago, diagonally across from the FirstUnitarian Church. It is proposed to erectthere the Meadville House for studentsfrom the Meadville Seminary in Pennsylvania so that they can have the advantageof direct contact with the University ofChicago. For several summers there hasbeen a co-operative arrangement by whichprofessors and students from Meadvillehave had the privileges of the Universitylecture rooms and classes.It is confidently expected that the erectionof the new Meadville House, which is estimated to cost from $100,000 to $125,000,will be begun in the spring of 1921. In addition to this new Unitarian relationship, theother religious organizations in alliance withthe University of Chicago include the Chicago Theological Seminary (Congregational), the Ryder (Universalist) DivinitySchool, the Disciples' Divinity House, andthe Norwegian Baptist Divinity House.A New Officer of the National ResearchCouncilProfessor Robert Andrews Millikan ofthe Department of Physics at the Universityof Chicago has heen elected third vice-chairman of the National Research Councilfor the year 1920-21. During the war Professor Millikan was vice-chairman of theCouncil. The National Research Councilis_ a co-operative organization of leadingscientific and technical men of the countryfor the promotion of scientific research andthe application and dissemination of scientificknowledge for the benefit of the nationalwelfare.Dr. Millikan's most recent book, TheElectron, is one of the most successfulvolumes in the "University of ChicagoScience Series."Canadian Commander at the UniversityA recent guest at the University wasMajor General Sir Arthur Currie, commander of the Canadian Army in Franceand now principal of McGill University,Montreal. General Currie spoke to the menstudents in the Harper Quadrangle and tothe women students at Ida Noves Hall,afterward taking luncheon with PresidentJudson.NOTES 55Former University Dean Elected to Hall ofFameAt the recent quinquennial election forrecognition in the Hall of Fame for greatAmerican men and women, the late AliceFreeman Palmer, non-resident dean of thewomen's department of the University from1892 to 1895, was one of those elected.Mrs. Palmer is the first woman to behonored by a place in the Hall of Fame.She was born in Colesville, N.

Manyalumni will be pleased to learn of this signalhonor to him.National Guard Unit Started at UniversityAt a meeting of students held in theReynolds Club, December 1, a start wasmade toward organizing a University ofChicago unit for the National Guard, theobject being to get up a "University ofChicago Company." Several students werealready members of the guard, and at thismeeting some twenty men agreed to jointhe unit and to assist in getting full enlistment. George O. Fairweather, '07, assistant business manager of the University anda member of the Chicago National GuardCommission, assisted in calling this meeting. President Judson, who served in theNational Guard of the State of New Yorkfor six years, strongly endorsed the project.It is hoped that some of the younger alumniin Chicago will also join this special unit.(Continued on page 78)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEProminent Alumni*• JLeroy Tudor Vernon, '00In Washington, D. C, where "nationalfigures" are as common as useless appropriations, possibly the most interesting job,next to President of the United States, isthat of President of theGridiron Club. This clubis not an Ail-Americanfootball association,though its "cross bucks"are easily as effective;this is a group of newspaper celebrities who, attheir annual dinner, havethe unique privilege of"panning" those in powerat the Capitol. Theprominent guests alwaysawake next morningsadder but wiser men.In 1918, and again in1919, Leroy T. Vernon,'00, was elected President of this club, a distinction awarded himin recognition of exceptional services in thenewspaper field.Like most Presidents,he comes from Ohio.Leroy Tudor Vernonwas born February 11,1878, a t Wilmington,Ohio, the son of JamesM. and Helena (Tudor)Vernon. As Leroy putsit, he "was born andraised in the newspaper business." His earlyyears disclose him as quite a traveler, forhis preliminary education was obtained inthe public schools of Chattanooga, Tenn.,Ft. Payne, Ala., Seattle, Wash., Everett,Wash., and then at the South Side Academy,Chicago.In 1896 he entered the University of Chicago, taking the classical course and considerably more. His "newspaper instincts"led him to become business manager of the1899 Cap and Gown and a member of thestaff of the college weekly. But Vernon wasalso a crack ball player, becoming captainof the 1900 baseball team. As one of the"Naughty Nineties" says, "Leroy was aslithe as a rabbit, and played around secondbase like a lambent flame." Vernon gaineda number of additional college honors. Hewas a special aide at the McKinley convocation in 1899, Head Marshal in 1900, achairman of the Junior College Council, onthe Board of Athletic Control for threeLeroy Tudor Vernon, '00years, and a member of Sphinx, Iron Mask,Owl and Serpent, and Beta Theta Pifraternity.Vernon spent his vacation, from 1898 to1900, at Everett, Wash., where he was CityEditor of the Everett Times. After receivinghis A.B. at the Universityin 1900, he joined theregular staff of the Chicago Inter-Ocean. In1902 he became politicaleditor of the ChicagoDaily News, and thenwas sent by that paperas special correspondentto Washington, D. C, inOctober, 1903, which position he has occupiedever since. Vernon's reports and special articleswhich have appeared inthe Chicago Daily Newshave won for him thereputation of being oneof the most able politicalobservers of the day.His services are frequently in demand, sothat he has written alsofor many other metropolitan newspapers andmagazines a t varioustimes.His familiarity withand keen judgment ofpolitical conditions ledto his appointment as publicity manager forthe Taft Campaign Committee in 1912. Forthree years he has been chairman of thespecial guest committee of the NationalPress Club of Washington, and for fouryears, 1913-1917, he was one of the StandingCommittee of Washington Correspondents.He is a member of the Economic Club ofthe National Geographic Society, and isnow serving his third term as a trustee ofthe Ohio Society of Washington. Vernonserved on the Governors' conference onlabor held at Washington in 1919. For hisexceptional work in the Liberty Loan campaigns he was awarded medals by the Stateof Washington and by the Treasury Department of the United States.In 1904 he married Georgia Mae Wheelerdaughter of the Rev. Kittredge Wheeler ofCamden, N. J. The Vernons have one childa daughter, Mary. 'Not only from a telegraphic point of viewbut also as an alumnus Leroy Tudor Vernonis a "live wire."ALUMNI 57Hugo Frank Bezdek, '08One of the reasons why Chicago wonthat historic 2-0 football game from Michigan, in 1905, was Hugo Bezdek. "Buzzy,"as he was nicknamed, playing fullback,gained a very large share of the yardagethat kept the oval almost constantly inWolverine territory. And, true to form, hehas been gaining considerable yardage eversince. Perhaps no alumnus who has entered the field of athletics has had quite theconsistent success or the wide and variedinfluence that Hugo has attained.Hugo Frank Bezdek was born April 1,1884, at Prague, Czecho-Slovakia. Hisfather was a teacher in Prague schools, sothat Hugo no doubt inherited much of his abilityto impart his ideas effectively. He came toAmerica at an early age,and attended the LakeHigh School, Chicago,where his athletic abilitiessoon brought him intoprominence in preparatorycircles. He then enteredthe University of Chicago,and began at once to gainnotice for his football,basketball, and baseballplaying. Many critics regard him as one of thebest fullbacks the west hasever produced. He didnot confine his activitiesto athletics, however, butgained, also, a number ofstudent honors, amongwhich were membershipon the Student Council,and membership in Owland Serpent, and in PhiKappa Sigma and AlphaKappa Kappa fraternities.In 1907-1908, while completing his studies, he was assistant-coachfor Mr. Stagg.In 1908, after receiving his S.B. degree,he began his career as physical director andcoach at the University of Arkansas where,for five years, he developed championshipfootball, basketball and baseball teams, anddid much toward building the new Arkansasathletic field. In 1913 he went as athleticdirector to the University of Oregon. Itwas Bezdek's Oregon football team thatdefeated the University of Pennsylvania14-0 at the Tournament of Roses, 1916, onNew Year's Day at Pasadena, Cal. In thePasadena tournament of 1917 Bezdek's U.S. Marine football team from Mare Island,Cal., representing the Navy, defeated theteam representing the Army, 19-7.For three seasons, 1917 to 1919, HugoBezdek- was manager of the PittsburghHugo Frank Bezdek, '08Baseball Club in the National League andsucceeded in making Pittsburgh again acontender for first honors. He also wasemployed by that club as a "scout," traveling about the country and "beating thebushes," so to speak, for minor league players that appeared to possess major leaguecalibre.Hugo is now at Pennsylvania State College at State College, Pa., as professor anddirector of the Department of PhysicalEducation and Hygiene. At "Penn State"he is repeating his successes as a coach,this fall, for example, developing one of thestrongest and one of the very few undefeated football teams in the east, decisively defeating Dartmouth, Pennsylvania,Nebraska and other strongteams. His season endedThanksgiving Day with a0-0 tie with Pittsburgh.Bezdek has always beena hard worker at his profession. Not only at Arkansas, but also at Oregonand at Penn State he hasassisted in building newathletic fields for varioussports, including tenniscourts and golf links. Inthe September, 1919, Outing Magazine he publishedan article on new athleticplans and systems nowbeing applied. He servedon the Executive Councilof the National CollegiateAthletic Association, andis a member of the Pittsburgh Athletic and theUniversity clubs. Hestates that his hobby is"work," and also golf,fishing and hunting, "whenI find time." A fewmonths ago he gave amost interesting addressbefore our Pittsburgh Alumni Club on thedifference in styles of coaching between theEast and the West.On July 31, 1907, he married VictoriaBodene Johnson of Chicago. The Bezdekshave two children, Hugo, Jr., and FrancesElizabeth. About the University Bezdeksays, "I still think of the University in thelight when I was an undegraduate — the onlyschool in the U. S.

Newly elected class officers wereinstalled, according to the new plan of thecouncil for acquainting the class with itsleaders, and Glenn Harding, '21, presidentof the council, Wallace Lannigan, '23, andJohn Ashenhurst, '21, addressed the classeson the subject of class unity and democratization. Questionnaires were distributed todetermine student sentiment as to class insignia, meetings and other plans for securing spirit.As an evidence of faculty co-operation,an open meeting of the committee on physical culture requirements was held in DeanRobertson's office on Tuesday, Nov. 30. Ascore or more of undergraduates attendedand suggested a more liberal administrationof the P.

Threefloors were devoted to dancing. Two different vaudeville performances were givenin Mandel Hall and numerous booths lined ■"*the corridors. As we write the financialreturns have not been compiled, but promise to exceed those of former performances.The cast for the women's musical comedy, "Joy of Singhai," to be given early nextyear, was selected at tryouts in which several hundred women competed. The threeleading characters are Grace Bennet, '22,Joy Hilo, Elizabeth Stone, '21; Jack Hilo,mayor of Singhai, and Virginia Foster, '22,Sang Froy.The Dramatic Club, under the stage directorship of Louis Dooley, '22, produceda musical dramatization of Vachel Linday's"The Chinese Nightingale" on Friday an-dSaturday, December 3 and 4.

The injuriesto Cole, Hanisch, Crisler and Hinkle,crippled the Chicago offense and virtuallymade it impossible for Mr. Stagg to putany kind of a winning combination intokthe field after the Ohio game. The Illinoisand Wisconsin games were remarkable fora defense on the part of the Maroons thatkept teams that expected to win by several touchdowns from even crossing theline. The Wisconsin game was the best ofthe year, and the Cardinals, fresh fromtheir defeat of Illinois the previous week,were outplayed and outfought. The factthat Chicago made eleven first downs toWisconsin's five tells only one branch ofthe Maroon supremacy. Mr. Stagg hadmanaged to contrive an offense, whichgained, but was not finished enough topunch over a score, and shortly before thegame ended, Davey, who beat Chicago lastyear, dropped over a kick from the 38-yard line. With Cole out of the game,there was no reliable punter, and no dropkicker at all, and this weakness hurt badlyall year.The prospects for next season are better than good. Only eight men will be lost:Capt. Jackson, tackle; Hutchinson andRouse, backs; Barker, tackle; Hinkle, end;Reber, center; Hanisch, full, and Clark,sub end.

Consequently I have made severaltrips to Los Angeles and have found thingsa httle more lively than they are here,but nothing to brag about. I'm going totry to get home Christmas and will tryto see you then. The Alumni Club herehave had no meeting this fall as yet, and Iknow none of them except Speik. However, as soon as I can meet the "bunch,"I am going to try to put us back on themap.The only thing I miss out here is the carand I am wearing off a lot of shoe leather.Probably, on the whole, it is better for me.I have seen all the reports of the football games and see that Ohio State iscoming out here to play California for the"national championship" on New Year's.How did they manage to set aside the conference ruling on games after Thanksgiving? Illinois, I think, has been trying todo that for several years, but has had noluck. Ohio looks best to me, as the teamsout here don't seem to be in the same classwith the ones back home. I think California is quite beefy, but they are ratherslow and have no open plays at all TheUniversity of Southern California defeatedOregon 21—0 and neither side showed anything extra. If Harvard cleaned on themlast year without much post-season practice, I guess Ohio with a little can havea walkaway.Well, I'll have to ring off.

The bestanswer to these questions is found in a description of what the alumnae are doing.Alumnae in TeachingMore of our alumnae go into teachingthan into any other line of work. Of the35 students taking principal sequences inhome economics who received Bachelor'sdegrees during 1919-1920, 10 are teaching incolleges, 11 are teaching in high schoolsor elementary schools, 2 are public schoolsupervisors of home economics, 6 are ininstitutional work, 1 is in extension service,1 is a graduate student here, 1 is marriedand 1 is living at home. All but two ofthose who received master's degrees arealso in college or normal school work.These, figures sho'w that sixty-six per• cent of the graduates of the department go into teaching or supervisory work.It is fair to assume, therefore, that thesefields are and will probably continue to bethe most important for emphasis at theUniversity. The Department cannot beginto supply its demands for trained teachers.The salaries, while not all that they shouldbe, are much better than they were a fewyears ago, and the opportunities for influential and interesting work are also greater. .A few of the alumnae who have recentlygone into college teaching and into supervisory positions are mentioned in this issueof the magazine. No attempt is made inthe limited space at our disposal to list themany high school positions.Bertha Whipple, M.S., '20, is instructorat the University of Missouri. Her thesison the effects of cooking on the watersoluble vitamine in cabbage and onion hasalready been published in the Journal ofBiological Chemistry.Margaret Mumford, M.S., '20, who isgiving nutrition courses at the Universityof Minnesota, writes of the work of herstudents in the metabolism clinics and thechildren's nutrition clinics of the hospital.Lotta Day, M.S., '20, is head of theDepartment of Home Economics in theHarrisonburg Normal School, Va. In addition to her teaching in the Normal, shesupervises the work in rural high schoolswithin a radius of 20 miles.Mamie Dentler, M.S., '20, whose thesishas been accepted for publication in theJournal of Biological Chemistry, is head ofthe Home Economics Department atNorthwestern College, Naperville, 111. Helen Goodrich, '20, is associate professorof home economics in Michigan State Agricultural College and is co-operating activelyin the work for the new home economicsbuilding.Florence Blazier, '18, has -just gone to Indiana University as assistant professor ofhome economics education.Ethel Stilz, '20, is also at Indiana University; Alta Nelson, '20, is at RockfordCollege; Frances Starin, '17, at the University of Oklahoma; Grace Wasson, '20, atSouth Dakota State College, and Jane Crow,'20, is home economics supervisor at FortDodge, la.Regina Friant, '16, who is supervisor forMissouri under the Smith-Hughes law, hasrecently published an outline for a twoyears' course in vocation home economics,entitled "Clothing-Food-Shelter," Vocational Education Bulletin No. 8.In training for teaching and supervisionthe Department offers subject-matter courses,courses in methods of teaching, and anadvanced course on the organization ofhome economics in schools which is basedlargely on the material gathered togetherin the recently published monograph of theSchool of Education, entitled, "Home Economics in American Schools," by Mabel B.Trilling, Leona Bowman and others. Thismonograph includes an analysis of the chieftext books in use in the schools, the aimsof home economics and the use of standardized tests in home economics teaching.The Extension FieldExtension work is another although different form of teaching for which there is ademand for home economic workers. JulietBane, who received her master's degree inhousehold administration in 1919, is thenewly appointed state extension leader atthe University of Illinois. Mary L. Dem-ing, '20, and Edith Van Deusen, '18, haverecently been made clothing specialists inConnecticut and Oregon, respectively.Two somewhat new lines for which extension specialists as well as teachers aresought, are nutrition and home management.In preparation for the latter subject thisDepartment is organizing for the summerquarter of 1921 a group of courses, newand old, which emphasize questions ofhousehold finance, labor and equipment, including buying problems, time studies withlabor-saving devices, and the mechanicalconstruction of these devices. A thoroughscientific treatment of this important field(Continued on page 63)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEBook Notices _f|.^_«l— Bl-J-n— ni— m—Remarkable spiral nebula, M. 51, in the constellation Canum VenaticorumPhotographed at the Yerkes Observatory (Figure 14, in "The Origin of the Earth,"by Thomas C. Chamberlin)The Origin of the Earth. By Thomas C.Chamberlin, Head of the Department ofGeology, the University of Chicago. (TheUniversity of Chicago Press) :In this book there are woven togetherthe story of a research, the steps and themethods of the inquiry, and the results sofar as now reached. The inquiry startedtwo decades ago in a study of the glacialproblem; it led through the enigmas ofearlier climatic states to grave doubts asto the verity of a once molten globe andthe great hot atmospheres supposed to envelop it. This led the inquiry into the fieldof cosmogony, where the main burden ofthe research came to lie. The book setsforth the disclosures that led to the rejection, one after another, of the older viewsof the origin of our planet, the futile attempts then made to amend these or tobuild others upon the same foundations, thefinal rejection of all these, and the construction of a radically new view based on anew dynamic foundation. The later chap ters of the book treat of the early stagesof the earth and the way its leadingprocesses took their start from their cosmo-gonic antecedents, these being held to beessential parts of the genesis of the planet.The beginning of the inquiry is set forthin the Introduction; the successive chaptersare entitled: The Gaseous Theory of Earth-Genesis in the Light of the Kinetic Theoryof Gases; Vestiges of Cosmogonic Statesand Their Significance; The Decisive Testimony of Certain Vestiges of the Solar System; Futile Efforts; The Forbidden Field;Dynamic Encounter by Close Approach;The Evolution of the Solar Nebula Into thePlanetary System; The Juvenile Shaping ofthe Earth; Inner Reorganization of theJuvenile Earth; Higher Organization in theGreat Contact Horizons.As implied in these chapter titles, thefundamental mode of inquiry is naturalistic,and is an attempt to detect the vestiges ofpast action in the status of present planetaryongoings and to interpret these as well asmay be.OF HOME ECONOMICS 63(Continued from page 61)has hitherto lagged somewhat behind otherlines of home economics.Special provision for nutrition specialistsand teachers, as well as for special nutritionworkers with children, was made last summer by the Child Health School, and similarplans are under way for the summer quarterof 1921. A group of underweight childrenare to come to the University once or twicea week to serve as subjects in demonstrations of. methods of conducting nutritionclasses with children. -Last summer thechildren gained very satisfactorily in weightand vigor. Their health habits, their homediet and school lunch, and their general improvement were observed by the Universitystudents under the direction of AssistantProfessor Roberts. One student, Alta Nelson, studied their basal metabolism with thenew Benedict apparatus, obtaining some interesting results which were reported inher master's thesis.Home Economics in Social WorkSocial work is another field in whichwomen trained in nutrition and child careand in home management are in demand.Among the alumnae in this field are AnnaBoiler, '18, in charge of the nutrition workof the Infant Welfare Society, Chicago;Pearl Henderson, '19, in charge of one ofthe apartments of the Housekeeping Centers Association, Chicago; Edna Mohr, '19, in the Welfare Department of the TennesseeCoal & Iron Company, Birmingham, Ala.,and Ruth Main, conducting nutrition clinicsfor the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium,Chicago.The American Red Cross is developingits work on the nutrition of children asfast as it can secure the workers. PearlRuby, M-S., '20; Marion Dunshee, '17, andWilliedell Schawe are all with the Southwestern Division. Nina Streeter is directorof the bureau of nutrition service for theCentral Division.Institutional EconomicsThe institutional field is one of the bestdeveloped for home economics trainedwomen. The work at the University has theadvantage of the extensive business of theUniversity cafeterias. Among the alumnaewho have recently accepted institutionalpositions- are Hertha Wyman, '20, directorof the institutional work at the Universityof Nebraska; Beulah Smith, '20, at the Margaret Morrison Institute, Pittsburgh; LillyKohl, in charge of the lunch room in theRockford High School, and Mildred Henderson, head of the Home Economics Department of the San Diego High School.A few of our alumnae are with manufacturing concerns. Eleanor Ahern, '13, is withWilson & Co., serving first in the domesticscience research laboratory and now in theadvertising department.wjiw:ii»i*v»jiv«:iv^THE GIFTfor your'CHICAGO" FRIENDIS HEREAsk 'or write for free booklet illustratingSouvenirs of U. of C.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO BOOKSTORE5802 Ellis Ave., [Ellis Hall]akffl^ffi^ffli^iwitt^.^THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Novelist of the RisingGenerationF.

The new ruling of the faculty of Arts, Literature and Science which permits studentsto major in home economics with a freechoice of minor sequence, will be of ad^vantage to institutional students and otherswho do not plan to teach, but who wishhome economics for their own satisfactionor for other professional lines.Research WorkersIt is probable that in the near futurethere will be an increased need for researchworkers in home economics. The questionof installing a home economics investigatorin many or all of the agricultural experiment stations on the same plane as the investigators in animal husbandry, dairychemistry, soils and the like, is now beingseriously considered in many institutions.If funds are appropriated we shall immediately need more women thoroughly trainedin home economics, chemistry, biochemistry, economics and other lines. It is ofinterest that two home economics womennow holding research positions are University of Chicago doctors. They are NellieGoldthwaite (chemistry), at Colorado Agricultural Experimental Station, and MinaDenton (household administration), Assistant Chief of the Office of Home Economics,U. S. Department of Agriculture, and 'incharge of the Experimental Kitchen.RegistrationThe registration in the Department forthe first term last summer showed a gainover that of the summer before, especiallyin graduate students; in 1919 the total number of registrations was 381, with 25 percent graduates, and in 1920, 440, with 30per cent graduates, thus showing an increase in both graduate and undergraduatestudents. The registration for the secondterm was smaller, as usual.Of our two fellows, one, Marie Dye, continued from last year, is working for herdoctorate in nutrition; the other, AdahHess, a graduate of Teachers' College, forher master's degree in home economic education.Dr. Chi Che Wang, formerly of the homeeconomics faculty, is chief chemist at theMichael Reese Hospital.Sybil Woodruff has left the Departmentto go to Oregon Agricultural College.Inez Boyce, a graduate of the Universityof Wisconsin, formerly head of the HomeEconomics Department at the DeKalbNormal School, is in charge of the methodscourse in food and household management.With one exception all the regular members of the faculty plan to be on hand forthe summer quarter, 1921. Miss Blunt willgive courses in nutrition, Miss Roberts indietaries and in methods of conductingnutrition classes for children, Miss Hallidayin food chemistry and experimental cooking, Miss Koll in economics of the household and mechanical care of the house, MissBoyce in methods of teaching food andhome management, Miss Bowman in tex-ECONOMICS— ATHLETICS 65tiles and methods of teaching clothing, MissTalbot in interior decoration and history offurniture, Miss McAuley in marketing.Among the extra instructors already secured for the summer quarter are MissFlorence Williams, Supervisor of Industrial Arts, Richmond, Ind., in costume design; Miss Adah Hess, formerly of Columbia University and the University of Idaho,now one of the fellows in the department, inorganization of home economics; Mrs. VeraHedden Loewen, a wholesale milliner ofChicago, in millinery; Miss Ruth O'Brien,assistant professor of chemistry, Iowa StateCollege (on leave), who spent last summeras textile chemist in the Amoskeag Cotton& Worsted Mills, Manchester, N.

The whole futureof higher learning in the middle west wasat stake. At this conference they devisedthe plan of providing twenty-two timersand twenty-two foul watchers for each football game and voted to request the Anti-Brutality League to furnish these officials;and the colleges agreed to pay the leaguefor each official's service per game anhonorarium equal to the standard day'swages for a first-class plumber. Of coursethe Anti-Brutality League was tickled pinkto have all those good jobs to distribute.Stagg fixed up the rules so as to give theofficials something to do and football wassaved.""What are the other twenty-two officialsfor?" I asked, but just then a Chicago manmade a forty-yard gain and my friendsmashed my hat down over my eyes andpounded me on the back so hard I couldn'tspeak again for several minutes."Oh, you Halliday! Oh, you Hanisch!"he kept on shouting.When he had finally quieted down Iseized him by the coat collar and saidfirmly:"Now listen to me a minute. Maybe you'll• think I'm crazy, but you sound crazy to me.I was a football fan in 1920 and the namesyou are shouting are all those of men whoplayed thirty years ago."My friend burst out laughing."Of course, of course," he chortled. "Nowonder you don't understand. This is thefamous second generation team. Twelvemen on this team are sons of the men whoplayed in 1920. My boy is one of them.He's playing tackle.""Oh, that's who you are," I cried out. "Ithought I knew your face. You are Jackson — Captain Jackson — and now you cantell me what I came a long way to learn.Did Chicago beat Wisconsin in 1920, andIllinois and Michigan — how did those gamescome out?""Yes, I'm Jackson," said my companion,but it's funny if you were such a fan in1920 that you don't know how the gamescame out.""Well, I remember about the Ohio gameof 1920 anyhow," I began to protest. ButJackson stopped me with a gesture."Don't tell me about it," he said. "I'vespent fifteen years trying to forget thatgame. All I remember now is that the scorewas very close.

A Chicagoman was dodging down the field free fromall players except the fullback. The runner was a slender fellow of medium height,but he leaped across the chalk lines like anantelope going home to dinner. Just asthe Wisconsin man jumped for the ballthe maroon runner swerved, twisting himself out of the reach of his opponent andtore on across the goal line."Reber! Reber!" shouted the crowd.My neighbor, Cap. Jackson, flung his armsabout in wild joy and dealt me a terrificblow across the face. Everything blurredbefore my eyes. The roar of the crowddied away. The stillness that followedseemed to choke me — I gasped — and openedmy eyes.My head was resting on the ouija board.The little three-footed table had fallen tothe floor.

Swift,Alumni Clubs Committee,University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Swift:On November 12 the University of Chicago Alumni Club of Indianapolis held avery delightful meeting at the home of MissRuth Bozell, our retiring president.An election of officers was held and thename of Miss Bozell was mentioned for theoffice of president. Miss Bozell declined,stating that she had held this office for thepast four years and that she thought someone else should have it. Miss Bozell thenmade a motion in favor of Mr. Wm. L.Richardson for president, formerly on thefaculty of the School of Education at theUniversity of Chicago. Mr. Richardsonwas unanimously elected as our president.President Richardson made a motion infavor of Miss Ruth Bozell as vice-president,and Miss Bozell was elected as vice-president. Mrs. Pierre A. Philblad was thenelected secretary and treasurer.After the election of officers PresidentRichardson read your letter of November 2,1920, to Miss Bozell, and also your letterto Miss Helen Jacoby of November 8.In regard to Mr. Chas. W. Gilkey's visitto Indianapolis in January, it was decidedthat we would have a meeting of the clubon Thursday, January 20, at which timewe would be delighted to have Mr. Gilkeyspeak to us. We are looking forward withgreat pleasure to Mr. Gilkey's visit.It was decided by the club to adopt theconstitution made out by the ChicagoAlumni Council. We have previously had aconstitution of our own, but in order tomake our club similar to the other University alumni clubs we feel that we shouldhave a similar constitution.Those who were present at our meetingFriday, November 12, 1920, were: Mr. andMrs. Wm. L. Richardson, Miss RuthBozell, Miss Minnie Mason, Miss CorinneRielag, Miss Jessie Moore, Miss MabelWashburn, Miss Marguerite Orndorff, MissHelen E. Jacohy, Mr. Harry C. Marvin,Mrs. Frank H.

Pierrot,University of Chicago.My Dear Pierrot:I am glad to say that we are going tohave Dr. Judd with us for our annual conference, Thanksgiving week. He has already written me that he will attend aluncheon of the University of Chicago Clubof Virginia and that he will address us onthat occasion. I am delighted to know thatDr. Judd is to be our guest. I am busytrying to get in touch with the graduatesof the University and inviting them to bepresent on this occasion.I long for the walks about the beautifulgrounds of the University of Chicago. Ofall places in the world, outside of Virginia,near which I would like to live, the University of Chicago stands first.With best wishes, I am,Sincerely yours,-F. B. Fitzpatrick, A.M., '19. mons, New Haven, on Saturday, October30, with some twelve alumni in attendance.The club now reports a total membershipof twenty-seven. At this New Haven meeting plans were made for holding definiteannual meetings, with enthusiastic endorsement by the members. As the club membership is somewhat widely scatteredthroughout the state the head officers resideand the meetings will probably be heldeither in New Haven or Hartford. FlorenceMcCormick, Ph.D., '14, continues as secretary of the club.Connecticut Alumni Club MeetsA report received from Geo. E. Tucker, '00,president, tells of a meeting of the ConnecticutAlumni Club of the University of Chicago.The meeting was held at the Yale Corn- Word From Vermont Alumni ClubRandolph, Vt, November 8, 1920.Mr. Harold H. Swift,Chicago, 111.Dear Mr. Swift:We had a very good meeting early in September. About half a dozen is all we canmuster at any time, but we are not lacking in enthusiasm if we are few in numbers.We are anxious to keep a Vermont organization, even if we are few. Perhaps wecan direct occasionally some good materialto the University. I have been a "booster"for several years, and I think two fine students were, in part at least, influenced to goto the University of Chicago through whatI said and did.With cordial greetings to all the alumniWe offer for sale first mortgages andfirst mortgage gold bonds, secured byHYDE PARK real estate.The CHICAGO TITLE & TRUST CO.are trustees. They have certified to thenotes, registered the bonds and guaranteed the title to the properties.Real estate mortgages do not fluctuate in value through the rise andfall of the bond market.

Wehave made it a practice in years gone byto meet once or twice a year, and I thinkwe will be able to -stage one or two goodmeetings this year. While we are not as.large in numbers as you are back there, stillwe make up for it in enthusiasm.The Salt Lake City alumni are alwaysready to co-operate with the larger body,and will be glad to do anything which youmay suggest at any time in the future.Sincerely yours,W.

Judd,Director School of Education,University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Judd:On the first day of the annual meetingof the South Dakota Educational Association at Aberdeen, the former students andalumni of the School of Education met fora Chicago dinner. At this meeting I wasinstructed by an unanimous vote to sendgreetings to' you and your colleagues in theold school. There were twenty present andabout twenty more Chicago people whowould have attended had the dinner beenannounced in advance. An organizationwas perfected and a Chicago dinner nextyear will be a feature on the program.Very sincerely yours,Arleigh C. Griffin,President Chicago Club, S. D. E. A.75Athletics(Continued from page 65)ber 30, with Dartmouth probably appearing on January 1.Track offers no hope at all. There areno men capable of winning places in theconference in any events from a mile orup, and there is only one field events man.In the sprints there will be Murphy, whois a 10 1-5 seconds dash man; Brinkman,and possibly Bartke, who really is a quarter miler. Capt. Harris is the hope in the220 and 440, and probably the only certain point winner of the lot. Bartke is astrong runner when in form, but is veryerratic. Hall and Schneberger will do thehurdles. Hall was pretty consistent outdoors last spring, but is better at the lowsticks than at the high. Pierce, Dooleyand one or two others will try the 880,and mile, but they are unproven as yet.McWilliams, who puts the shot, seems tobe the only man who can be looked tofor points in the field events.What the track sport needs from akindly Santa Claus is a covered dirt track.The present board track is a fearful machine to run on, productive of such ailments as "shin splints" and other legwreckers. Johnny Johnson will be keptbusy ironing out the kinks in the squad,despite the best care the men use. Theother big schools of the conference, particularly Illinois and Michigan, which turnout track winners, have dirt tracks, whichare useful not only for the indoor season,but for the early part of the outdoor season, when bad weather is likely. TheMaroons do not need a million dollararmory, but they do need some placewhere they can have a real track and aplace for winter baseball practice.Doctor White is preparing to giveNorthwestern an unusually hard fight forconference swimming honors this season,and will put his team on exhibition shortly,while Coach Hotter counts on winning thegymnastic title as usual.The football dates for next year:Oct. 1. — Northwestern at Chicago.Oct. 8 — Purdue at Chicago.Oct. 22 — Chicago at Princeton.Oct. 29— Open.Nov. 5 — Ohio State at Chicago.Nov. 12 — Illinois at Urbana.Nov. 19. — Wisconsin at Chicago.The schedule probably needs a word ofexplanation, especially as regards Michigan. Mr. Stagg felt that it was necessaryto drop the Wolverines for the year because scheduling them would give Chicagofive hard games in a row. Iowa wasdropped because the Hawkeyes are not"natural" rivals, and were therefore thefirst to go off the schedule in order to/ighten the load of the team somewhat.A nonconference game will be scheduledfor Oct. 29. -W.

Itreceives messages from nerves invarious regions of the body and transmits them to minor nerve centers or"ganglia," which directly act on themuscles to be stimulated. Its principal function is to keep in operationvarious mechanical processes, ofwhich the most important is theproper elimination of food waste.The presence of food waste in thecolon ready for discharge causes amessage to pass to this plexus. Theplexus immediately forwards thismessage on to the smaller nerve centers which directly control the muscles of elimination in the walls of thecolon.Constipation results from failure ofthe colon muscles to respond to orders. These muscles may fail because the waste matter in the colonis hard and dry, or because of reaction from over-stimulation created bysalts, pills, castor-oil, mineral waters,etc. They are "tired out" and unable to respond — just as a jaded horsecan no longer respond to the whip. Nujol, unlike cathartics, works onlyon the waste matter and not on thesystem. It does not stimulate orharm, and therefore is the safe andrational treatment for constipation.Nujol simply softens the food wasteand keeps it at the proper consistency, making it easy for the musclesto pass it from the body in their normal way. In the same process it relieves the nerves of over-exertion andenables them to rest.Nujol actually prevents constipationbecause it helps nature maintain easy,thorough bowel evacuation at regularintervals — the healthiest habit in theworld. It does not cause nausea orgriping, nor interfere with the day'swork or play.Nujol is absolutely harmless andpleasant to take.

There are no machines in the twelvegreat Hercules plants that need only to be started at the beginningof a day, stopped at the end, and which in the meantime carryout their tasks without attention.Every machine used in the making of Hercules Explosives has aman for its master. Every motion it makes is watched. Theresults of its work are carefully checked. Nothing is ever takenfor granted. No machine is looked upon as infallible.In the gelatin packing house, for example, is a large machinewhich fills paper cartridges with *Hercules Gelatin Dynamite.Although this machine works with almost positive precision andaccuracy, every cartridge which comes from it is inspected tiuiceto make certain that it is properly packed. One inspection takesplace immediately after the cartridge leaves the machine. Anotherbefore it is finally boxed for shipment.The men who use Hercules Explosives know how dependable arethe men who make Hercules Explosives. The Explosives themselves tell the story. Their power never fails those who seek itsaid. In metal mine and stone quarry, at the bottoms of deeprivers and in the hearts of great mountains, where the engineerbuilds a city skyscraper and where the farmer blasts a ditch,Hercules Explosives live up to the name they bear.*|L HERCULES POWDER CO.J&I jJJ Chicajo St. Louis New York TJf)/K\ PmsburE.
