Not much snow this year — but such views are obtainable occasionally.University of ChicagoMagazineVol. XIII. JANUARY, 1921 No. 3I. Events and CommentIn this number appears an article on theChicago Alumnae Club which will prove ofinterest to alumnae andChicago alumni generally. It will,Alumnae furthermore, suggest activi-Club ties for most of our clubsthroughout the country,pointing out possible paths of endeavor asthey grow in membership and strength.But we particularly urge our alumnaereaders in and about Chicago, who are notalready members of this organization, togive this article their fullest attention. Itis evident that the Chicago Alumnae Cluboffers real opportunities to alumnae interested in the betterment of conditions alongvarious lines. The Club, as the article explains, does not confine itself to social' activities — although these are by no meansoverlooked — but takes a very active andhelpful interest in library, settlement, employment, and other very worth while projects. Those who know of the Club needno such reminder of the growing strength,the broadening philanthropic interests, andthe fine loyalty of the alumnae who makeup its membership and strive to carry onits work. We are glad to accept this chance,however, to "present the Club" to thosealumnae who are not yet familiar with itspurposes. We believe that, as one verydesirable result of the article, many suchalumnae will come to realize the importance and high aim of this organization, andwill, we hope, enlist. On December 22 the Department ofAthletics sent out a letter to active alumni,announcing that it had "setAlumni Seats aside approximately 1,000 re-at Games served seats which will beallotted to Alumni" at thebasketball games in Bartlett Gymnasiumthis winter. The letter explained that ontwo occasions at basketball games in 1920hundreds were turned away. Thus the department, plainly, sought to give alumnifirst chance at such seats as the limited capacity in Bartlett made available — after allowing seats for the student body. This,of course, is the right step forward. It isinteresting to note that the alumni responded at once, and within the followingweek had bought out all the sections reserved, for the entire basketball season.Inevitably, at best, so long as the seatingcapacity at basketball games is greatlylimited, many alumni will be unable to obtain seats; but the Athletics Department isclearly doing the best it can. Last fall analumni section was reserved at the footballgames; this, too, was well taken up; probably a larger space for alumni will be reserved next season. After all, such arrangements simmer down to just how promptlyand how fully the alumni will availthemselves of such privileges. But it is wellto bear in mind that under any circumstances some alumni are bound to be disappointed.The writer took occasion last fall to85THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEexamine the alumni publications of Yale,Harvard and Princeton, on this matter.These institutions, because of their long experience, their large athletics organization,and the great seating capacity available attheir football games, are usually pointed toas having attained the acme of perfectionin accommodating their alumni. You maybe surprised, therefore, to learn that all ofthem received many complaints from alumnifor "failure to accommodate." Those whotook their own good time to respond wereangered to learn that for that reason alonethey lost out; many complained becausetheir seats were in the wrong sections, someeven in sections where the rooters were forthe rival schools; others howled becausetheir relatives could not be supplied withtickets; many kicked because the seats werepoorly located — and so forth. .In some instances, subscribers to their funds, becausethey could not get tickets at the lastmoment, demanded that their subscriptionsbe withdrawn. It's not a path of violetsand daisies.For us, the answer seems obvious. Theforward step has already been taken, butit is up to the alumni to accept the privileges offered promptly and fully — and, it mightbe added, for individuals to place the largestshare of the blame on themselves if they arelax in accepting. Moral: Never wait untilyou are sure it won't rain before attemptingto reserve your seats.Reunion is but five months away. A longtime? Not at all. In the whirl of our contemporary merry-go-roundReunion it will seem like five days.Hence it is well to make,now, at least tentative plans for visiting theCity Gray on Friday and Saturday, June 10and 11. Your Alumni Council has alreadybegun its plans. This Reunion should bean important one for all of us. It is ourthirtieth anniversary; it is the sixty-fifth anniversary of the old University. ■ It is a special anniversary for some of our largestclasses. At the Quarter Centennial celebration five years ago the program included abaseball game with the team from Waseda,Japan. Waseda will again be our guest.Other features are in store, and, of course,the Shanty should do a rushing business. Sothink it over, talk it over — let's get readyto go,'!■—«■■""■■The Graduate College, Princeton UniversityThe view shows its imposing Cleveland Memorial Tower, erected as a memorialto Grover Cleveland, a resident of Princeton and a trustee of the University, by popular subscription throughout the United States.(See Views of Princeton, pages 92-93, in this number.)CHICAGOThe ChicagoThe Chicago Alumnae Club of the University of Chicago, (the first "Chicago" forthe city where the club is located, and thesecond, for the University from which itsmembers come) is open to any formerwoman student of any college or graduateschool of the University of Chicago. Itwas organized in 1898 by a group of alumnae headed by Angeline Loesch, LauraRunyan and Margaret Ransome. Fromthe beginning its interests have extendedbeyond the entertainment of its members.The very first year, it began UniversityCivic work, the Alumnae Club RentingLibrary. Later a financial obligation tothe University of Chicago Settlement wasundertaken, and still later, support of theChicago Collegiate Bureau of Occupationswas undertaken. At present the club hasvirtually four departments: Social (whichis described last of all), Library, Settlement and Bureau.The Alumnae Club Renting Library -hadits first office on a shelf in the old GeneralLibrary in the Press Building. Its quartersare now in room 3J/2 of the East Tower ofHarper General Library. Miss Cora M.Gettys, an alumna and a member of theLibrary staff, supervised it with the helpof a volunteer alumnae committee at thebeginning and end of each quarter. Nowthe Library supports an all-of-the-year-around attendant, who is to be found inthe Alumnae Library Office for a coupleof hours each day and who is given tuitionin compensation. The Library receivesUniversity text books through donation orby purchase. Its books constitute a circulating library rented to University students at twenty-five cents per volume perquarter. The Library Officials gladly testify that this Library is of considerable helpto them and to Harper Library in relieving pressure on the reserve book room andin other ways. And the fact that therewere more calls for books than there werebooks to rent out shows that the studentsare availing themselves eagerly of the opportunity. At present the library pays forits own books, which, however, are notnearly enough in number to supply thedemand or the need, but the AlumnaeClub raised the $240 for the four quarters tuition. The chairman of the LibraryCommittee will be glad to receive any donation of books and the treasurer of theAlumnae Club will be glad to receive anycontributions of money.In 1908 the Alumnae Club undertook aSettlement Fellowship. At that time Miss ALUMNAE CLUB 87Alumnae Club■nn—— nn— nn— .nn— —oh—— *a— in*— in-— ■■— m_»— ne^ntfiHELEN NORRIS, '07President of the Chicago Alumnae ClubHelen Norris, president of the Chicago AlumnaeClub, has been active in Alumnae Club and AlumniCouncil activities since her graduation. While in college she was on the Girl's Glee Club, on the StudentOrganizations Committee, on the 1006 Cap and GownBoard, and was interested in other student aftairs.She was a member of the Sigma Club. For sometime Miss Norris has been doing unique and notablework along personnel lines and as Librarian of theCommonwealth-Edison Company of Chicago. Underher administration the Alumnae Club is makingmarked progress.Louise Montgomery did vocational guidance work among those of the settlementneighborhood children who were leavingschool or trying to. It was distinctly asettlement activity. Mrs. William F. Dum-mer paid one-half of Miss Montgomery'ssalary and the Alumnae Club paid the otherhalf. Since then the Alumnae Club hastaken over various special activities forwhich the settlement needed financial support for a special worker. But with theestablishment of the scholaship in connection with the Alumnae Club Library, theFellowship at the Settlement was abandoned, but not the Alumnae Club supportof the settlement. Now the club makes anannual contribution of at least $100 towardthe expense of the general maintenanceTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Swimming Pool, Ida Noyes HallGymnasiumof the Settlement and its buildings. Andat the present time with increased costof every item of general maintenance thisis of very real help to the Settlement and is a necessary part of thevery foundation without which no specialSettlement activities could be undertaken.The chairman of the Alumnae Club Settlement Committee is not only responsiblefor raising the necessary money, but isalso a member of the Board of the University of Chicago Settlement.The Chicago Collegiate Bureau of Occupations is an organization made up ofthe Chicago Alumnae Clubs of twelve different Universities co-operating togetherand running an office for the service notonly of college women, but of all womenand especially of women who are more orless trained. Its most obvious function isthat of a placement or employment office;but its placement department functions twofold, first, in finding jobs for people whoneed them, second, in finding out aboutjobs and possibilities in jobs for peoplewho are going to need them later, and whoare at the time still in school and wanting to know how to get ready for theduty of earning a living. The bureau'sbiggest function is the constant study andaccumulation of vocational facts and itsbiggest duty the dissemination of this information to the girls in high school andcollege, and to the parents of such girls.Work of this kind is worthless unless donewell, and is a very expensive task requiring the service of expert people: The placement department is one laboratory sourceof such information. But there is needof constant independent investigation. Thisyear Mrs. Florence Taylor made a studyof the field of employment management,welfare work, and of closely connectedpositions, of the nature of the duties involved, of the previous training, of theextent to which women were being usedand may be used. The bureau is anxious to follow up this piece of investigation andto undertake certain other ones as soonas it has the money. But with the investigation made, the job is only begun. Theinformation gathered must be made available to the people who have the largestuse of it; the people still in school. Theschools ask for it, sometimes the facultyand sometimes student organizations. Butthe manager of the Chicago CollegiateBureau of Occupations is at the service ofthe schools and each year responds tocalls from schools all over the country,from Texas to Boston and from Montanato Baltimore. The bureau only regrets thateach year it must refuse to honor a greatmany of these calls. When it is better developed its each department may havethe full time service of an adequate staff.The staff which it can support at presentdoes heroic service, and of the kind which,we submit, the schools have a right toexpect of their alumni and alumnae. TheChicago Alumnae Club of the Universityof Chicago has two delegates to the governing board of the Chicago CollegiateBureau of Occupations and a separate committee to raise the money needed to meetthe Alumnae club's share of the expense.When Drexel House was organized, itwas largely through the initiative of ThyrzaBarton, '07, then director of housing atthe University, and from the first DrexelHouse has had an Alumnae Committee appointed by the Alumnae Club. DrexelHouse is a co-operative housekeeping woman's dormitory at the University. Whenthere was refurbishing to be done this fallthere was real work for the Alumnae Committee. The chairman of the committeehas now been made a member of the Executive Board of the Alumnae Club.But with all of these "good works," thiAlumnae Club 'does not neglect its offices of hospitality and sociability. It hasthree regular meetings a year and sometimes extra special ones. The three regular meetings correspond to the three quarters of the school year. Each year President and Mrs. Judsdn have opened theirhome to the club for one meeting, a Saturday afternoon "at home," to which allmembers of the club look forward. Thisyear that party was on November thirteenth. Then between Christmas and NewYear's is a holiday luncheon, designed especially to afford an opportunity for avisit with the women who are .in Chicagofor the holidays. This is almost always adown-town luncheon of fifty or more alumnae and sometimes with a program. Andin April is the annual meeting down-town.and usually a luncheon, with business reports, elections, etc. Formerly there wasanother regular meeting, the June breakfast. But when the College Alumni Association asked the Alumnae Club to inviteCHICAGO ALUMNAE CLUB 89to this breakfast all of the homecomingwomen, it became a feature of the CollegeAssociation June Reunion, with the Chicago Alumnae Club a large hostess committee in charge.This year a special children's party isplanned for the late winter or early springand also some other special meetings tobe held for special programs in specialplaces.The Chicago Alumnae Club and the College Alumni Association have suffered muchconfusion. The Alumni Office receives letters from people who say they have paidthe Alumnae Club dues and why do theynot receive the magazine. The club receivesletters from people who say they sent theirmoney to the Alumni Office and the magazine comes all right, but why did they notreceive invitations to Mrs. Judson's.The Chicago Alumnae Club is a localwoman's club and any former woman fromany college or graduate school student ofthe University of Chicago who lives in ornear Chicago is eligible. It is not to beconfused with any of the general or international and co-educational organizations, such as the College Alumni Association, the Law School Association, theDivinity School Association, the Schoolof Education Association, and the Association of the Doctors of Philosophy. Theassociations have the June reunion foreverybody from everywhere; through theAlumni Council they publish the Universityof Chicago Magazine, which is paid forby the payment of the general associationdues of $2, or the purchase of a life membership and subscription to the Universityof Chicago Alumni Fund. But while theselife memberships pay for the magazinefor life and pay the general association dues for life, they do not pay the localclub dues. On the other hand, people whoare not life members may pay their General Association dues, including magazinesubscription, through the local club.The club has a present membership ingood standing of about 250 members anda mailing list of nearly 500. It carriesnames through about two years of nonpayment of dues before dropping them.There are, at a rough guess, about 2,800women eligible to the club. With 250 members the club has its social meetings andconducts educational work, costing it about$500 a year. It seeks to enact the truespirit of the university in making properarrangements for the social meetings ofits members; in upholding the honor ofthe university, and in being good citizensin the community as through the settlement, in serving the students in the University as through the Renting Library andthrough the Drexel House Committee, andin serving students in all schools and fromall schools and the community at the sametime as through the Collegiate Bureau ofOccupations.The Alumnae Club Athletic Class has developed since the erection of Ida NoyesHall. During the autumn, winter andspring quarters, an Alumnae Class has theuse of certain rooms in Ida Noyes Hallon Thursday afternoons and evenings forswimmng, bowling, dancing and basketball.In the afternoon from four to five o'clocktea is' served in the Alumnae Room. Thisautumn quarter there are over 70 registrations in the Alumnae Athletic Class. Thereis a gynasium fee of $3 per quarter, whichcovers locker, towel, etc., charges, andwhich is in addition to the annual AlumnaeClub dues, but the privilege of the AlumnaeAn Interior View of Drexel HouseAn Alumnae Committee, appointed by the Chicago Alumnae Club, assists in thekeeping up of this co-operative housekeeping woman's dormitory.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAthletic Class is limited to members of theChicago Alumnae Club. Registration isby the quarter.Each of the club's departments needsfurther development and increased support.The executive committee of the club knowsof many other tasks which the committeesalready in existence wish to do, and stillothers entirely new, which ought to beundertaken had the club the money andthe membership to accomplish further obligations.The Chicago Alumnae Club bespeaks thefriendship, co-operation and membershipof all former University of Chicago women,from North, South and West Sides, andfrom the suburbs for thirty miles around.And it has a non-resident membership forwomen interested in its work and not nearany other University of Chicago local club.The present officers of the club are:Miss Helen Norris, president.Miss Emily A.

At the suggestion of GovernorBelcher, it was named in honor of William of Nassau, Prince of Orange, William IIIof England. During the Revolution, it was occupied as a barracks in turn by theAmerican and British troops. In 1783, when Congress held its sessions in NassauHall, it was the capitol of the Nation. Here, on August 26, 1783, Washington received the thanks of Congress for his conduct of the war. It is now the administrativecenter of the University.OF PRINCETON UNIVERSITY 93Holder TowerHolder Tower is the most striking feature of Holder Hall and the UniversityDining Halls. This Gothic group bounds the Princeton Campus on the north andwest. The group forms four sides of a large quadrangle, together with the Toweron Nassau Street. Three sides are available for the use of students; the fourth side isa cloister.Since its founding, in Colonial times, Princeton University has been one of thegreat educational centers of America.(The picture of Nassau Hall, on page 92, is from a drawing by the well-knownartist, Lester G.

'*The One Hundred and Eighteenth ConvocationOne hundred and forty-one candidatesreceived degrees and certificates at the Convocation of the University held on Tuesday, December 21. President Judsonconferred the degrees and presented hisConvocation Statement.In the Colleges of Arts, Literature andScience there were ninety-four candidatesfor the Bachelor's degree; seven in theCollege of Commerce and Administration;and thirteen in the College of Education.In the Divinity School twelve degrees wereconferred, in the Law School one, and inthe Graduate School of Arts, Literature,and Science fifteen Master's and ten Doctor's degrees. The total number of degrees conferred is 137.Among the graduates were a Finlander,two Japanese (one Bachelor and one Master of Science), and two Chinese (oneBachelor in Education and one Doctor ofPhilosophy).Meeting of American Association for theAdvancement of ScienceThe seventy-third meeting of the American Association for the Advancement ofScience, with its numerous affiliated societies, was held at the University .fromDecember 27, 1920, to January 1, 1921. TheAssociation has a membership of 12,000.In addition to the presentation of the moretechnical papers in the various sections,there were many papers, lectures, andsymposia of wide popular interest. Theretiring president, Dr. Simon Flexrter, director of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, addressed the Associationon "Twenty-five Years of BacteriologicalResearch"; Professor R. W. Wood, of JohnsHopkins University, gave a demonstrationlecture on "Phosphorescence and Fluorescence"; and Dr. R. F. Griggs, of Ohio StateUniversity, lectured on "The Katmai Volcanic Region of Alaska."The vice-president of the education section is Director Judd, of the School of Education; the secretary of the geology andgeography sections is Associate ProfessorRollin T. Chamberlin; of the astronomysection, Professor Forest R. Moulton, andof the psychology section, Professor FrankN. Freeman. The permanent secretary ofthe Association is Dr. Burton E. Livingston, of Washington, D. C, who received hisDoctor's degree from the University ofChicago in 1902.Three members of the scientific faculties of the University of Chicago have alreadybeen presidents of the Association — Professor T. C. Chamberlin, formerly head ofthe Department of Geology; Professor A. A.Michelson, head of the Department ofPhysics, and Professor John M. Coulter,head of the Department of Botany.Attendance at the UniversityThe total registration at the Universityduring the quarter just closed was 5,989, asagainst 5,682 for the corresponding quartera year ago. In this connection it is interesting to note the total attendance for severalyears past, showing the effect of war onthe University and the restoration of normalconditions.The total attendance in 1916-17 was 10,-448; in 1917-18, 9,032; in 1918-19, 8,635; in1919-20, 10,880, and during the four quartersof the current year the attendance bids fairto be upwards of 11,000.Delta Upsilon Has Twentieth AnniversaryThe Chicago Chapter of the Delta Upsilon fraternity celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the chapter atthe University of Chicago in the first weekof January. On Thursday afternoon, January 6th, from 3 to 6, a reception was held atthe Chapter House, 5747 Blackstone avenue, which was attended by members of thefaculty, the chapters of other fraternitiesand clubs, and by many of the general University community. Among other events onthe program for the week was a reunion ofalumni of the chapter which was attendedin large numbers. Arthur E. Bestor, '01,President of the Chautauqua Institute, NewYork, John Mills, '01, Research Engineer,New York City, and Harold H. Nelson, '01,Ph.D. '14, recently returned from Beirut,Syria, the three who started the chapter atChicago, were in attendance.

Hoyt, Secretary 1It is a long time since the Board ofRecommendations has sent greetingthrough the magazine to the Alumni whoare engaged in the teaching profession.Doubtless you will all be interested toknow something of the activities of thisoffice during the last three years.The entry of the United States into thewar had very immediate effects here. Atonce there were rush calls for teachersto fill out the unexpired terms of thosewho went into some form of war service.The summer of 1917 was a period of greatstress. Men were going into service andthereby diminishing the number of available teachers, as well as the enrollmentin colleges and normal schools. Youngpeople were leaving high schools and evengrade schools to take the places in commercial fields left vacant by the men whohad enlisted. We had many calls for advice, both from schools and our teachinggroup, as to the outlook and the bestcourse to pursue. Schools wanted teachersof certain subjects one day, decided thenext that their probable enrollment wouldnot warrant the expense, and as likely asnot decided the week before school beganthat they must have the teachers at anycost. Women, who had expected to teach,found at the last minute that they muststay at home because their brothers hadbeen called to the colors, or that they musttake up the business that their brothershad to leave, and so resigned their positions, thus creating continual vacancies.After a trying summer we looked forsome relief during the year. But the samegeneral uncertainty continued with theadditional complication of a general restlessness. Women, especially, began to feelthat this was their opportunity, that newand fruitful fields must be opening to them.It would have been interesting to keep arecord of the number of inquiries receivedand answered as to the best opportunitiesand the probable future for definite persons. To each inquiry individual attention was given, with the result that ourcorrespondence was extremely heavy. Itwas a rare opportunity of really knowingsome of our graduates whom we had nothad the pleasure of meeting, as well asof renewing old acquaintances.By the spring and summer of 1918 theexodus from the teaching profession intowhat seemed more remunerative occupations had begun. Those who are in educational work know full well the results inthe field of this move. So far as this office was concerned, it meant an unprecedented amount of work. During the year1915-1916 we were asked to file 1797 positions for the year 1916-1917; during 1916-1917 (which included the summer of 1917)the number had increased to 2318 for theyear 1917-1918; in 1917-1918 the numberwas 3170 for the year 1918-1919; in 1918-1919 there were 3681 calls for 1919-1920;and in 1919-1920 we were asked to fill 4217positions for the year 1920-1921. Of thosereceived for 1920-1921, approximately SJ/2per cent were in universities, liyi per centin colleges, 9 per cent in normal schools,42 oer cent in high schools, and 13 percent in elementary schools.Accompanying this rapidly increasing demand was a steadily decreasing numberof available teachers. The extensive advertising concerning the inadequacy ofteachers' salaries had a two-fold effect: Salaries were increased by large percentages,but men and women had heard so muchof the poor opportunities in teaching thatthey were not interested in entering theprofession. Many went into commercialfields at salaries less than they could havesecured in teaching, believing that therewas a greater future in the business world.Large numbers of men in good teachingand administrative positions accepted business appointments at salaries double whatthey had been receiving. How permanentbusiness careers for teachers will be, remains to be seen. In any event it is imperative that all who are interested in education should make every effort to recruitthe diminishing ranks of teachers with people who view their work as a profession,not as a job from which the maximum offinancial gain may be abstracted.Last autumn, in order to secure additional space for the Bureau of Records, theoffice of the Board of Recommendationswas moved to Lexington Hall. We arenow occupying the northwest and centre-west rooms facing on University Avenue.In order to insure safety for the valuablematerial concerning our registrants, a vaulthas been built in the center room largeenough to hold the confidential paperswhich we now have concerning approximately 6000 people and to care for thenormal increase for three or four years.We are hoping that by that time buildingconditions will be such that the new administration building may be completeand all the offices housed in the one build-(Continued on Page 114)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEr Prominent Alumni— — -*Lawrence DeGraff, '98Lawrence DeGraff — now a judge in theSupreme Court of Iowa — has the distinctionof taking the first entrance examinationoffered by the University of Chicago. Hewas born at Apple River, Jo DaviessCounty, Illinois, June 24,1871, the son of Hiramand Sarah (Eplett) De-Graff, of Dutch and English ancestors. He re-reived his preliminaryeducation in the publicschools of his native town,and then attended DixonCollege, Dixon, 111., wherehe was graduated, B.A., in1894. After some preparatory work at MorganPark Academy, he enteredupon further studies atthe University of Chicago.During his sophomoreyear he left the universityto accept the position ofprincipal of public schoolsat Galena, 111.; in the following year he becameprincipal of public schoolsat Dixon.He completed his workat the University, however, and received the degree of Ph. B. in1898. He then entered upon the study oflaw at the Northern Illinois College of Law,from which institution he received hislaw degree, and, later the honorary degreeof Master of Laws. For a year he was associated in the practice of law with JudgeJudson F. Going, of Chicago, and then wentto Des Moines, Iowa, accepting the positionof secretary and instructor in law in theHighland Park College of Law, which position he occupied for four years. Mr. DeGraffthen engaged in the active practice of lawin Des Moines.In 1904, being appointed First AssistantAttorney General of the State of Iowa, hebegan a career that soon brought him topublic notice throughout the state. Thisposition he held until January, 1907, whenhe was elected prosecuting attorney of PolkCounty, in which Des Moines is located.In the three years in which he performedthe duties of this office be made an unusually strong record. On January 1, 1910, hewas appointed, by Governor B. F. Carroll,judge of the district court of the ninth judicial district. In the following November hewas elected to that office by the highestvote polled in the county. He has beentwice re-elected as district judge, last De-Lawrence DeGraff, '98cember completing his eleventh year ofcontinuous service in that office. It is noteworthy that the cases appealed from hisdistrict court decisions have been uniformlyupheld by the Iowa Supreme Court, the lasttwenty-five cases consecutively having beenaffirmed.It was this excellent andconsistent record andservice which led the DesMoines Capital, in common with other leadingnewspapers of the state,to say of him, editorially:"The members of thePolk County bar haveagreed that Judge Lawrence DeGraff should bethe county's candidate forone of the three places onthe Supreme Bench. Hehas a splendid record inthe legal world. The cityof Des Moines and PolkCounty might well pridethemselves upon theirrepresentative if JudgeDeGraff were selected."On July 27, 1920, at theRepublican State JudicialConvention at CedarRapids, Judge DeGraffwas nominated as a candidate for the Supreme Court of Iowa; at the election, onNovember 2, he was elected by a large votethat was an additional tribute to his judicialabilities and character. He took office onJanuary 1.Judge DeGraff did not confine his workto the bench. For some time he has beenProfessor of the Law of Property at DrakeUniversity, Des Moines. He is the authorof several -textbooks and pamphlets, including outlines and principles of Americangovernment, introductory studies in economics, pharmacy law, and similar subjects.He is a member of the State Bar Association, and a member of all the Masonicbodies. While at the university he becamea member of Sigma Chi, and he is at present the chief national officer of that fraternity.Judge DeGraff was married August 141901, to Miss Grace L. Clark, of Earlham,Iowa. There are two children, Lawrence,Jr., age 9, and Barbara Grace, age 4.We quote from his biography in the History of Des Moines and Polk County: "Heis alert, capable, energetic and publicspirited. He is justly numbered among theprominent and progressive men of DesMoines."ALUMNI 97Walker G. McLaury, '03Walker G. McLaury's interest in theUniversity of Chicago dates back "by inheritance" to 1856, when United StatesSenator Stephen A. Douglas started the olduniversity. His grandfather, CharlesWalker, a member of the Chicago Boardof Trade and a Louisiana sugar planter,was one of the first men to be interestedwith Stephen A. Douglas in organizing thatinstitution. Throughout the life of the olduniversity Charles Walker was on theBoard, and when that institution went outof existence, through a close series of unfortunate circumstances, he continued inconnection with the Baptist TheologicalCollege and the BaptistHospital, which, so tospeak, were a part of the"salvage." In view ofthese facts, McLaury'suncle, George C. Walker,accepted a position on theBoard of Trustees of thepresent University, holding office from 1890 to1895, the year of hisdeath. During most of thetime, George C. Walkerwas on the finance committee of the Board, wasin particularly close touchwith President Harper,and rendered great servicein raising the first sums ofmoney which made thenew university possible.Furthermore, he contributed Walker Museum,which was named in honor of his father, CharlesWalker. Another uncle ofMcLaury, incidentally,married a daughter ofSilas B. Cobb, and wasmanaging the Cobb estate,which contributed Cobb Hall in memory ofSilas B. Cobb. With such an "ancestral bent,"it was inevitable that Walker McLauryshould not only attend the University ofChicago but should, as an alumnus, continueand express the keenest and most loyal devotion to its interests. Aside from this,however, he has achieved a success in Chicago financial circles that has brought himamong our prominent alumni.Walker Gailey McLaury was born in Chicago, December 22, 1881. After attendingKenwood Preparatory School, he enteredthe University in 1899, and was graduated,Ph. B., in 1903. During his college days hewas very active and prominent in studentaffairs. Besides serving on a number ofclass and special committees, he took leading parts in Dramatic Club and in BanjoClub performances, was an editor of theDaily Maroon, in the reorganization ofwhich he assisted, and was managing editorof the 1902 Cap and Gown. He was a mem-Walker G. McLaury, '03ber of Iron Mask, Owl and Serpent, andother class societies, and of Psi Upsilonfraternity.After leaving Chicago he did some graduate work at Cornell University in electrical engineering, and then entered the employ of the Western Electric Company inChicago. With this firm he soon rose tothe position of General Cashier for thebranch houses. But, as Walker puts it,"When it became necessary for me to betransferred permanently to New York, I feltI would rather remain as a citizen of Chicago, and induced Mr. David R. Forgan toallow me to join the staff of the NationalCity Bank of Chicago, which was thenin its infancy." Thosewho know Walker McLaury know that twothings could be expected:One, hard, steady, determined effort; and, two,successful advance in hischosen field. He was intime advanced to the position of Credit Manager,then he became AssistantCashier, and then for several years, Cashier. Forover a year, now, he hasbeen one of the Vice-Presidents of the National City Bank of Chicago, his principal dutiesat present relating to thedepartment of loans. Invarious ways McLauryhas been active in financial matters in the Chicago district, and duringthe war he was of assistance in keeping the financial machinery functioningsuccessfully for the waroverload.On September 2, 1909, atHarbor Springs, Mich., he married MaryWolcott Keep Nye. The Walkers have twoboys, William Walker and Nye McLaury.For over two years Walker McLaurywas treasurer of the University_ Club ofChicago, and he is now serving his secondthree-year term on its Board of Directors.He is also a member of the Chicago Club,Bankers' Club, Olympia Fields CountryClub, and several business and trade organizations, on various committees of whichhe has rendered services. He states thatautomobiles are his hobby, "particularlythose involving electrical construction,which I find fully as enjoyable when theyare out of order as when they are carryingme out of the city." We think, however,that if you glanced over his many serviceson the Alumni Council, with the ChicagoAlumni Club, at Reunions, and on otheralumni functions and occasions, you wouldconclude that not automobiles, but the progress of alumni affairs is really his "hobby."UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENews of the QuadranglesKatherine Clark, '21, and Justine Dixon,'24, as Sailors in Portfolio PlayReaders of the Chicago newspapers willbe relieved to learn that the Quadrangles,as such, are still in existence despite therecent crime wave on the Midway, and thatcampus activities are going on as usual.The several weeks preceding Christmas vacation were rather stirring ones, with holdups of students nightly, and, according tosome of the downtown papers, kidnapingof campus women in big black limousinesand the chase of the criminals by a Ku KluxKlan organized by indignant students. Although the facts were not as bad as madeout by the press, nevertheless a great number of students were "stuck up" and relieved of their overcoats and bankrolls. Evidently the crooks were seeking money tobuy Christmas presents for the baby, as norobberies have been reported since the holidays.One of the unsuccessful robberies occurred when a gang of man accosted ClydeLarrish, '23, as he was on his way homefrom Settlement Night. They got nothing.Which reminds us, that when the final report for settlement night was turned in byKeith Kindred, '21, chairman of the event,the amount of money cleared was found tobe almost twice that of last year. The finalfigure for this year's receipts is approximately $4,600. Such an elaborate entertain ment was put on at this year's show that theBoard of Student Publications and Exhibitions has decided that from now on Settlement Night will be an exhibition and allthose who take part will have to be eligiblefor public appearance.John E. Joseph, '20, managing editor ofthe 1919-20 Daily Maroon, the writer ofQuadrangle News in the Alumni Magazinelast year, is the winner of the annual Blackfriars competition and has been announcedas the writer of the accepted play, "TheMachinations of Max." The plot of the production is. laid in the artists' colony onFifty-seventh street and is in the "present,"being concerned with students and professors at the University."Mama, they is a Sandy Claus, aint they?"was the order of the day on December 15,when the annual party for the UniversitySettlement kids was held in Ida Noyes hall,under the auspices of the Y. M. and Y. W.C. A. A Christmas tree was oh hand andpresents and apples were provided for over200 of the west side children."Hello there!" is the slogan which greetedstudents at every turn during the week ofJanuary 10. The Federation, a woman's organization, inaugurated a "Hello" week todo away with some of the well known stiffness and formality of our staid Quadrangles.The event was primarily for women, although Ruby Worner, '21, president of theFederation, announced that if men wishedto participate in the informality, the womenwould come half way.Campus leaders, the well known "heroes"who have four or five activities to manage,as well as the men who are simply engagedin one activity, are more intelligent than thecampus student who does not engage in activities. At least this is what a psychologyclass discovered through experiments ontwenty men whom representative campuspeople and faculty members had picked outas the highest men in the field of activities.The men were given the Thurston intelligence test and it was found that they had acorrespondingly higher rating on the teststhan average students. There was found tobe no correlation between the rating thecampus gave these men and their relativescholastic standing, but there was a correlation between their scholastic standing andtheir standing in activities.Seven students were elected to Beta chapter of Phi Beta Kappa on Friday, Dec. 17.They are: Sadie Lindenbaum, '22, AlvinHerman Baum, '21, James Carlin Crandall,'21, Harold Lewis Hanisch, '21, Alice Ruth(Continued on page 103)W.A.A. PORTFOLIO 99-■■— ll^ll— II— .11— 1|_ ||— |R_The W. A.Founded for the double purpose of raising funds to support the Women's AthleticAssociation and of affording women of theUniversity with an opportunity for dramaticexpression, the 1921 Portfolio promises tosurpass all previous performances and does,in fact, mark a new phase in the development of dramatics on the campus. The offering this year is by far the most elaborateundertaking ever attempted by the Association."The Joy of Singhai," a musical comedywritten by Josephine Strode, '21, aided byseveral University women who assisted withthe lyrics and music, particularly MarthaBeck, '24, and Helen Palmer, '23, is expectedto raise appreciably the standard of dramatics for women. It marks the culmination of the goal set by the pioneers in thePortfolio when they established that organization in 1905-06.Fifteen years ago the need became apparent for a permanent athletic fund, theinterest of which could be used to purchaseW. A. A. emblems and trophies. A committee visited President Harper and hepromised that if the Association would raise$500 he would secure a like amount. Thegreater part of this sum was gained throughsubscriptions from students and alumnae,and it was to complete this financial campaign that the first Portfolio was given inthe winter of 1906.The $500 goal was reached and PresidentHarper and Director A. A. Stagg subscribedthe additional $500. Later the associationdecided to present a Portfolio productionevery other year, a Circus to be staged onthe alternate years. The Circus originallywas not designed to make money but wasregarded as a means of bringing Universitywomen into a closer social bond. Last yearwas the first time that an admission wascharged.Lexington Hall proved too small to accommodate the crowds that attended theperformances and in 1913 Mandel Hall wasthe scene of "The Campus Follies." Included in the short skits and vaudeville was"March, March, Marching Along," composed by Winifred Pierce, now a favoritecampus song, which was sung at "The Follies" for the first time. Gertrude Perry waschairman, and Mary Phister, business manager of "The Follies.""Under the Greenwood Tree," written byDorothy Llewellyn, was presented in 1915,under the managership of Margaret Monroe.Although supplemented by vaudeville, the1915 Portfolio was the first musical performance given as a Portfolio production. A. PortfolioGrace Bennett, '23, as Joy Hilo inPortfolio Play"The Chinese Nightingale," by Vachel Lindsay, produced under the direction of Mrs.Hymen, was the 1917 offering. MarionLlewellyn was manager of the 1919 Portfolio, which consisted of several short skitsand vaudeville.This year's performance will be given, asin recent years, in Mandel Hall, under thedirection of Josephine Strode, the author, assisted by Miss Bertha lies, ex-'04, of the Chicago School for Dramatics. Dramatics forwomen has never played an important part inUniversity activities, but the need and interestis illustrated by the fact that between 300and 400 women tried out for places thisyear, and of these only two had appearedin a University dramatic production previousto this time.In this year's production, the musicalcomedy, "The Joy of Singhai," one hundredcollege women will take part. The cus-tumes will be very elaborate, and are beingdesigned by Ruth Lytle, downtown. Scenicand music arrangements will be on theorder of a Blackfriars performance. Fourperformances will be given : February 4, 5, 11and 12 ; no matinees. Many alumni and alumnae are taking unusual interest in the production this year.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAthleticsAbout the time this issue of the magazinereaches the mail, the Maroon basketballteam will be starting on the Conference season. Wisconsin opens in Bartlett on January 15, and Director Stagg's five will get thereal test then. The team has played variouspractice games since the middle of December, and always has emerged with victory.Most interesting were the games with Butler, Pat Page's school, and Princeton.Butler was defeated, in a rough game, 29-21,and Princeton was beaten, on December 30,15-11, in a slow contest. The Princetongame drew a crowd of about 3,000 thatpacked the gymnasium, but the Tigers weresomething of a disappointment, even whenthe earliness of the season was considered.Chicago has looked weak in attack allalong, and certainly it will not have thesmooth working offense of Wisconsin, forexample. In the last few practice gamesthe team has carried the ball down the floorin a clever manner, but the players did soby individual skill more than anything else.The five-man defense is still in vogue, andthe opposition will find it difficult to ringup many scores, unless they stand out nearthe middle of the floor and pop baskets. Itis probable that the scores in Conferencegames in which Chicago participates will below, for the opposition at least.Return of Vollmer at the -beginning ofthe Winter Quarter has given Mr. Staggfour of the five men who played last year.Vollmer is a terror on short shots, but hispractice showing indicates that he will needtime to get his eye. As the team lines upnow, Capt. Crisler plays the back guard;McGuire, running guard; Halladay, center,and Birkhoff and Vollmer, forwards. McGuire is a senior who has been a substitutefor two years, and is fast and fairly clever.Strohmier and Stahr, the other candidatesfor the job, are victims of unfeeling professors, but they may work off conditionsand get eligible in time to do something.Stahr was a wonder on the freshman teamlast season, but his eyes are bothering him,and his shooting has not been effective. If Stahr plays, Birkhoff will shift to a runningguard, with Stahr at forward, while if Strohmier wins out, the latter will be the guard.Birkhoff's free throw shooting has not beengood this year, and this is rather seriousunder the new rules, which make "bodilycontact" a personal foul, because games maybe decided by the free throws.On the face of things, Chicago is aboutas good as any other team in the Conference, and perhaps ought to be the favorite.Illinois has not been going good, and Iowalikewise appears weak. Purdue is strong,but is not played. Wisconsin showed a wonderful floor game at Northwestern in thefirst game of the Conference season, butlost, 13-12, because of poor shooting. Ohio'schances have been hurt because some ofthe regulars were busy with the footballteam that went to the coast. If Chicagocan beat the hard schedule laid out, anotherchampionship should be won this year.The football schedule has now been completed, the University of Colorado teamhaving been taken on for a game on StaggField on October 29, the week after thePrinceton game. This gives both East andWest intersectional contests.Coach White's swimming team will havethe following schedule: January 12, Alumni;January 21, Milwaukee A. C. at Milwaukee.January 26, at Chicago A. C; February 11,Chicago A. C; February 18, Northwestern;February 26, Iowa; March 5, at Illinois;March 12, Wisconsin; March 17-18. Conference, at Northwestern. Northwestern willbe given a tough battle for the Big Ten titlethis season. In Blinks, the Maroons have aman who can swim the 100, 220, 440 andrelay and, with decent luck, win them. Inthe backstroke there are Yegge and Ivy,the former a point winner last year; in the220, Allison, a "C" man, Merriam, Riversand Church; in the 440, Miller, Allison,Merriam and Crewdson; in the breast stroke,Jenkins and Lusk; and in the fancy diving,Schuh, Blye, Goodrich and Leggette.

This annual dinner, becoming increasingly prominent, affords an excellentopportunity for alumni, former studentsand friends of the University to meet oldfriends and to hear the University news.The reunion will be of special interest thisyear, inasmuch as President Judson expectsto attend.The arrangements which were made withthe Hotel Traymore make it necessary toknow considerably in advance the numberwho will attend.

Gray, the University of Chicago, forthe number of tickets which you want?The price is three dollars per plate. Ticketswill be forwarded as soon as requests, accompanied by check or money order, are received.The Education ClubThe Education Club, an organization offaculty members and of graduate and advanced undergraduate students, which wasbegun in the autumn of 1919, is supplementing in a most profitable way the work ofclassrooms and private study, promotingmutual acquaintance, and fostering schoolloyalty and spirit. In 1919-20, members ofthe faculty presented studies which servedto inform the students of newer lines ofresearch and of the types of criticism towhich such studies are subjected, and toindicate the nature of problems and methods of attack which would serve the students in their thesis work.In the current year, the opening meetingswere devoted to the speedier adaption ofthe new students to the work of the Schoolof Education by acquainting them with thehistory of the department, with its relations to other branches of the University.with the conceptions of education andgraduate training which determine the policies of the department, and with the organization and requirements of the departmental curriculum. The end sought hasbeen achieved in a greater measure thanin any former year.A second phase of the year's program isthat of a series of reports from men prominent in practical educational administrationof the applications of educational science they are making. The first of these reportswas given by Superintendent W. C. Reavis,of Alton, 111., and related to the methods ofsupervision employed in preparing a corpsof teachers for radical changes in a system's practices, policies and curricula.Arrangements have been made for a second such report by Superintendent Paul C.Stetson of Muskegon, Mich. Again the workof the Education Club is being made tosupplement the work of the classrooms bygiving evidence of the applicability of thescientific methods presented.Social Affairs in the School of EducationThe four departments of the school — education, art, home economics and kinder- ;garten-primary— have formed departmentalsocial clubs, each having charge of onecelebration during the year. The plan wasmade in order that the responsibility forthe various festivals might become a tradition. Art has charge of Hallowe'en;home economics, Thanksgiving; kindergarten-primary, Christmas; and education,Valentine's Day. Supplementing theseevents, the clubs may plan private partiesof different sorts. The Summer Quarter,1921, will be enlivened by two general receptions and two garden parties, withweekly departmental gatherings, and otherevents planned to assist in making the session pleasant socially as well as intellectually profitable.The One Hundred Eighteenth ConvocationThe University granted 137 degrees atthe Autumn Convocation, December 21,1920. Of these 105 were awarded in theSenior Colleges, 17 were Masters' degreesand 11 were Doctors of Philosophy. Graduates from the School of Education were:Certificate: Erliss Budlong, Anna M.Greening, Ida J. Long, Mary G. Turner.Ph. B. in Education: Delia C. Briggs, Ro-setta M. Case, Ruby Cox, Dorothy Durland,Ethel C. Gavin, Oscar Granger, ElizabethB. King, Chuang Liu, Francesca C. Shot-well, Jennie B. Wilson. S. B. in Education:Stephen E. Smith.Charles W. Hill, S.B. in Education, Kansas State Normal, 1919, received the degreeof Master of Arts, his thesis topic beingThe Relation Between Efficiency Ratings ofTeachers and the Results of Their ClassroomInstruction.Honors for excellence in the Departmentof Home Economics were awarded to MissFrancesca C.

The registration for thiscourse is most gratifying, especially in thelight of the fact that the tuition in the colleges has been increased this year for thesecond time in two years. The enrollmentrepresents only a slight decrease over thatof last year for the two-year course.The School of Education is the firstteacher-training institution in the country tomake four years of study beyond highschool the minimum requirement for thetraining of elementary teachers. It thusproclaims its belief that the preparation ofkindergarten and elementary-school teachers should be on the same level as that ofhigh school teachers, and at the same timegreatly increases the dignity of the workfor supervisors and for teachers of methods.The program is now organized so that astudent does about two-thirds of her juniorcollege work and somewhat less than one-third of her senior college work in the Colleges of Arts, Literature, and Science. Thisarrangement insures a foundation in socialstudies, science and English language andliterature upon which the professional workmay be built and at the same time keepsthe student in contact with the laboratoryschool and the professional subjects fromthe beginning.Advanced CoursesThe departmental announcement in theSchool of Education catalogue for 1921-22will show also an unusually large numberof courses especially planned for advancedstudents who are preparing for teaching innormal schools and for supervision of kindergarten and primary grades. Among theseare courses for which graduate credit isgiven. Practically all of these courses willbe given during the Summer Quarter, 1921.The Summer QuarterThe twenty sections offered by this department during the first term of lastsummer had an average enrollment of 30,making a total of 600. In addition to theclasses, the department planned and carried through a number of conferences whichwere attended by large numbers of students.Professor Morrison of our own staff was the speaker at one of these conferencesand Mr. S. A. Courtis of the Department ofEducational Research of the D.etroit PublicSchools at another.Plans for next summer include morecourses and a greater variety of subjects.The conferences, addressed by prominentmembers of the general faculty, will becontinued.Faculty ItemsIt happened that three members of thisdepartment visited South Bend this autumn.Miss Storm and Miss Hardy went there toaddress a county institute and Miss Temple, some weeks later, to speak to the primary section of the Northern IndianaTeachers' Association. A great many ofthe teachers of northern Indiana have beenstudents in the Kindergarten-Primary Department of the School of Education. Atthe time of the association meeting MissTemple was entertained at luncheon by agroup of these teachers. The gathering wasarranged by Miss Dorothy Willy who isnow teaching in South Bend.Miss Martin has been one of the principalspeakers at a number of institutes duringthe year in Pennsylvania, Michigan andIowa. She has also addressed local clubs inSpringfield, 111., and in Detroit.Mrs. Kern addressed the InternationalKindergarten Union at its annual meetingin Topeka, Kan., last April. On this occasion Mrs. Kern, Miss Martin, and theChicago alumnae had a reunion andluncheon.Kindergarten-Primary ClubThe Kindergarten-Primary Club was organized in October, 1920.

Stored FoodsAt certain seasons of the year,nature mothers us in generouslavishness; at other seasons shetreats us as outcasts.One great service rendered bySwift & Company to the consumeris in taking some of the surplus ofnature's plenty and storing it againstthe season of non-production. Thisis a service based upon soundcommon sense and meets a definiteeconomic need.This enables you to obtain all theyear round some foods which otherwise would be so abundant in certainmonths that the entire supply couldnot be used, and so scarce at othertimes that prices would be prohibitive.Swift & Company has equipped itsplants and branch houses with refrigerating plants, and has a sufficientnumber of refrigerator cars to carry asupply of meat foods to its customers.Space in public cold storage warehouses also is used by us to carry'perishables until they are needed.We store only enough meat,butter, poultry, eggs, and cheese tosupply our customers during theperiod of scarcity and not to speculate on rising prices. Our storageprofits during the last eight yearshave averaged about one cent adozen on eggs, and less than a centa pound on butter and poultry.Storage of food is a world necessityand we regard our part in this as animportant factor in our service insupplying the nation with wholesomefood.Swift & Company, U.

Downing.)A Source Book of Biological Nature-Study — By Elliot R. Downing, AssociateProfessor of Natural Science, The Schoolof Education, University of Chicago. (TheUniversity of Chicago Press) :This book includes material whichought to be familiar to the average pupilbefore he leaves school. It aims to give, byillustration, word-picture, and key, familiarity with the common animals and plants.The book is not, however, merely a mediumof familiarity: it includes also some discussion of the environment and the economicvalue of common plants and animals; andthe problems of their conservation. It givessuggestive discussions of some of the life-histories and the problems that confrontanimals and plants, answering questionsthat are uppermost in the minds of pupilsand others interested in the living thingsabout them.In a word, the book undertakes to givesome acquaintance with commonplace living things and to point out their significance. It is expected that it will appeal notonly to pupils and teachers, but to thatlarge group of nature-lovers who are interested in knowing more of their environ ment and its bearing on human welfare.The volume includes that mass of knowledge and experience with plants and animals that should be a part of the mentalequipment of the intelligent American, boththat he may appreciate the significance ofliving things and that he may have adequateknowledge for whatever requirements hislater life may entail.The Source Book and the Field and Laboratory Guide are designed for teacher-training classes in normal schools and highschools, and the material is organized withspecial reference to the training of theteacher and the presentation of the subjectto the pupil. The former may well be usedas a text in general biology in the highschool, especially when no adequate courseis given in nature-study in the grades, inwhich case the Guide should be used withit. Teachers' reading circles will find theSource Book stimulating, and its value forlibrary and general reading cannot be overestimated. Grade teachers should by allmeans be provided with it. In all the varied uses to which it may be put, the 338sketches and photographs add greatly toits effectiveness and charm.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE U9f ■ \. . . and at New York's Homeof Grand OperaqA fact:All during the season at the Metro-Solitan Opera House — whose every au-ience is typical of the best in NewYork society— the sales of Fatima exceed those of any other cigarette.FATIMACIGARETTESJahn &OUierEngra^i|XaCOLOR PROCESS PLATE MAKERSHALFTONES -ZINC ETCHINGSPHOTOGRAPHERS (COMMERCIAL)DRAWINGS (COMMERCIAL) SKETCHES & DESIGNS554 WEST ADAMS STREET • CHICAGO he Editor of theLONDON PROCESSWORKER Said-"\ Found theJAHN and OILIERENGRAVING COMPANYthe Most Progressiveaad Up-to-DateEndravinq PlantTn Chicago"THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Road to Health Is Smoothand Clear If You Use NujolBy C. Houston QondissPublisher, The Forecast and Lecturer on Food and NutritionTHE real Road to Health isan intestinal highway 30feet long. When Constipation clogs this road, it's thesame as when a landslide blocksa mountain pass. There is adifference, however. Constipation not only blocks the way,but breeds poisons whichmenace health.The obstruction in the mountain pass can be blown out withdynamite, and the obstructionin the intestines CAN be blownout with powerful drugs — butany drug powerful enough todo this is bound to harm thebody.There is only one way to relieve Constipation without inthe least measure endangeringthe delicate mechanism of thehuman system. That is theNujol way.Nujol is absolutely harmless.It is NOT a drug. Not a particle of it is assimilated by thebody. All it does is to softenthe mass impacted in the colonand lubricate the way to normal expulsion. Nujol does this without causing any pain or discomfort. Itdoes not in any way interferewith the digestive processes.It has no more effect on thedelicate membranes and tissuesthan to smooth and soothethem. It is a healing force whichgently but effectively removesthe intestinal obstruction, andperforms this great service tohealth without in any way lessening Nature's provisions forprotection. Its sole province isto help Nature help herself.Nearly everyone is subject toConstipation at some time orother. Nearly everyone hasproved the worthlessness ofordinary "remedies" as to lasting results.Now try Nujol — and learn thatthere is a lasting relief for thiscurse.NujolREG. U.S.- >AT.
