In time, thison should prove of much ben-Calendar efit to alumni affairs. Upto a few years ago therewas some uncertainty as to what day inJune would be selected as Alumni Day forthe next reunion. Because of the comparatively early Convocation under ourQuarter system, our reunions, coming atConvocation time, take place approximatelytwo weeks before the usual time for suchgatherings at most universities and collegesthroughout the country.It was suggested that possibly our reunions came a bit too early in June, thatthe "summer feeling," the out-of-doors hankering was not yet quite upon us; it wassometimes felt that we were, also, challenging Mr. Weather Man too strongly; henceit was proposed that our reunion be setfor some date after the June Convocation.The objections, however, seemed too strongagainst such a change: First, because theSenior Class would be gone, and, secondly,because the opening of the Summer Quarter finds the University somewhat changedin its general personnel among both Facultyand students. As near as possible, returningalumni should see the institution under itsmore usual, October-to-june conditions. Astime went on, furthermore, it was foundthat, whether by mere good-luck or otherwise (please touch wood), we were quiteuniformly fortunate in weather. The earlydate, also, did not seem to affect noticeablyour attendance, for every year witnessedlarger attendance. Thus it has now becomequite settled that Alumni Day falls on theSaturday just preceding the June Convocation, this year on Saturday, June 11th. Such Saturdays, therefore, will be notedhereafter on the yearly calendars as AlumniDay. As stated a moment ago, this shouldresult in considerable benefit to alumni interests. The yearly calendar appears regularly in ( the University's Circular ofInformation that is sent out to prospectivestudents, and in response to inquiries.Everybody who gets the Circular glancesdown the Calendar to note the importantdays in the University schedule. Thus,before a student even registers he seesAlumni Day listed as one of the regularCalendar dates, and the importance of thisday is already suggested. In this and inother ways — for the Calendar is frequentlylooked over by many at the University —Alumni Day will become more firmly fixedas a day of importance in the minds ofhundreds who should be interested.During the last few years it has becomethe fashion to emphasize the difference between education and intelligence.A Various tests have been devisedand and applied at some of the lead-B ing educational institutions, oneither a large, general scale or ona smaller, class-room scale, to discover howstudents compare in the matter of intelligence, and also for the more direct purposeof getting at the real mental difficulties ofsome students. It is contended, sometimes, that in many cases our grading systems fail to record or set forth correctlythe actual mental ability of the student.However, as noted in our News of the■ Quadrangles last issue, the Thurston intelligence test was recently applied in apsychology class at the University. Theobject in this instance was to compare the125THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEintelligence of a group of some twenty menwho were most prominent in college activities with the intelligence of a group whodid not appear in the side-shows. The result indicated that the students who arevery "active" are more intelligent thanthose who are not active in college affairs.In other words, A, who goes in for Blackfriars, "politics," and so forth, aside fromhis scholastic grade, gets an A in intelligence, while B, who studiously avoidscampus publicity of any sort, gets a B inintelligence. Now, does this mean anything? Have you an opinion on it? Ifso, let us hear from you — please displayyour "intelligence."A report from the Recorder's Office reveals that the "record" for attendance offoreign students at the Uni-Student versity has been passed —Personnel there are now some 463foreign students registered.Russia, you may be interested to know,leads, with 100 registrations; China comesnext, with 75. Canada has sent us 44,the Philippines 39. Among the leadersappear Japan, with 34, England, 27, andGermany (though we are still at war withher) 18. The entire list includes studentsfrom almost every European country, andfrom such far-away places as South Africa,Turkey, Egypt, Korea, Caucasia, Syria,India, and Armenia. This certainly seemsto indicate that we have fired a shot heard 'round the world. It is, indeed, just suchworld-wide representation which, indirectly at least, helps to prevent a studentat Chicago from falling into a merely localoutlook; it does much, probably, to developthat broader, somewhat international outlook that every university student in thesetimes ought to possess.You occasionally hear a supposed "argument" against attendance at Chicago on thefeeble ground that the students are practically all from the city and therefore lackthat close interest in the institution whichstudents who live at a school obtain. The"objection," of course, is largely fanciful.Certainly some of our most successfulstudents, and some of our most loyalalumni, have come from the city itself; andit is to be hoped that the city will alwayshave a very large and an increasing number of representatives in attendance. Butthe facts on attendance do not show ourstudent body as being confined to men andwomen from the city. Our registrationrecords can show about every state in theUnion represented. The large number offoreign students, just noted, is another instance. Our dormitories are alwayscrowded, and have long waiting lists; indeed, one of the needs of the University ismore dormitories. But, if you want to geta good idea about the attendance, aboutthe great and constant demand for roomsat or near the University, about this wholebusiness — just ask the Housing Bureau.The Library— Charles Hitchcock HallACTIVITIES OF THE UNIVERSITY 127ittii in " " " "" " "* "" "" "° " »»—••«— nn— ii q^_ tin^— nn^_ nu— an-^aa^— »a— ai-^ua— na~— 10^— no— in— iXj The Publishing Activities of the University j| By Donald P. Bean, '17 jThe American idea of the UniversityPress is derived from the English University Presses of Oxford and Cambridge. TheOxford University Press was founded in1478 and has a record of more than fourhundred years of continuous publishing.The most recent addition to the Americanfamily is the University of PennsylvaniaPress, which was founded in November oflast year.Our own University Press has been connected in an intimate way with the life ofthe University. As the institution expandedin the service of a growing alumni and student body, and in its contributions to thefield of education and society at large, thePress has attempted to interpret the University achievements through the medium ofthe printed page. It was thus hoped thatthe full significance of achievements undertaken in the name of the University mightbe preserved through our books " andperiodicals.Historically, the Press has been, from thebeginning, an integral part of the University— one of the major divisions of Universityorganization. Its ruling bodies are a Committee of the Board of Trustees and a Faculty Board of Publications. The finances ofthe Press have been generously providedby the same machinery as general University funds.This organic relation with Universitymethods and administration has been ourchief advantage, and continued close association will become of increasing significance in our future program. Now,_ asnever before, education needs redefinitionboth as to material and method. The war and the resultant upheaval have emphasizednew tasks and responsibilities for all social and political institutions. It is not surprising to find a large amount of literatureand a widespread interest on the part ofcreative educators in a new interpretationof their problem.In our own institution, through numerousexperiments in the Colleges, the School ofEducation, the School of Commerce andAdministration, the Divinity School, theMedical School, and all of the graduateschools, the University is developing significant contributions to this general problem.The Press, in line with its past record, isstriving to provide a channel through whichas many of these experiments as possiblemay be recorded and interpreted to theworld at large that "human life may beenriched."The organization and administration ofthe Press is centralized in three departments: the Manufacturing, or Printing Department; the Retail Book Store; and thePublication Department. The manager ofeach of these divisions is directly responsible to the Committee on Press and 'Extension of the Board of Trustees.The Publication Department has supervision of all stages in the securing, financing,and distribution of books and periodicals.The manuscripts are submitted to the General Editor who secures an approval ofmerit and educational distinction from theFaculty Board of Publications. The Boardof Trustees, through the Committee on Pressand Extension considers the work of theDepartment as one of the educational activities of the University, and provides appro-The University of Chicago Press BuildingTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEpriations as for other University Departments. If the work of this Departmenthad been conceived primarily as a money-making venture, our list would not containthe present number of outstanding scientificcontributions and volumes necessarilylimited as to sale, but of unmistakable valueand credit to the institution.The number of successful ventures hasmaterially increased in the last few years,coincident with a significant increase in thevolume of sales. Increasing experience andstudy of the marketing problems of ourtype of literature will undoubtedly bring increased efficiency of method and organization.The appropriations are divided betweenbooks and periodicals. The University publishes thirteen scientific journals in its ownname and is agent for fourteen CambridgeUniversity Press scientific periodicals.These periodicals cover almost every fieldof educational activity and provide an outletfor the short articles of our own Faculty,with significant contributions from otherinstitutions. The Astrophysical Journal isan interesting illustration of the periodicals.It is the only Journal in the world whichdeals exclusively with astrophysics, and isin every way an international Journal, circulating in forty different countries. In1915 two-fifths of the circulation was in theUnited States, and three-fifths in foreigncountries. The total number of subscribershas increased slightly in spite of the seriousfinancial difficulties in some countries dur ing the last five years. The loss of subscribers in the Central Empire and Russiahas been offset by a gratifying increase oftwenty per cent in the circulation in theUnited States, and now the distribution is„about equally divided between domestic andforeign subscriptions.It is possible to mention only a few illustrations of recent books. In the capacityof publishers for the Art Institute's Scammon Lectures, we have recently issued "Outlines of Chinese Art," by Dr. John C. Ferguson for many years special adviser for theChinese Government, which has exhaustedtwo impressions. In the spring we shallissue in the same series two significant publications, one by Joseph Pennell on "TheGraphic Arts," and one by Lorado Taft on"Modern Tendencies in Sculpture."Professor Scott's "Introduction to thePeace Treaties," which has been reviewed inthe Alumni Magazine, has been spoken of inseveral reviews as the most satisfactory andthorough treatise on the peace treatieswhich has yet been published.There is a tendency in this redefinition ofeducational methods to emphasize the problems of modern life, and the adjustment ofindividuals to the present-day work and society in which they live. The list of publications in the social sciences, covering boththe theoretical side and the field of appliedsociology and philanthropy, is an importantone.

Pierrot,_University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:As you know, it was the good fortune ofthe Dallas Club to have Prof. Clark as ourguest one evening during his stay last week.As Sunday evening was his only free period,twenty-nine of us gathered together at asupper at the University Club, where Prof.Clark gave us a most interesting andtimely talk. He brought home to us clearlythat which many of us had felt dimly buthad never expressed openly in our thoughts,the sense of obligation we should all feelto our Alma Mater for the education wehave received, and the way in which sucheducation has changed our lives. He presented statistics to illustrate his remarksin such a way as to make them stick inone's mind. And he told us much aboutthe University and its development, and theAlumni, which we were most glad to hear.His talk as a whole was very inspiring, andwe feel that results of his efforts will showin the future activities of the Club.We wish to thank you sincerely for thecopies of the Magazines, the reprints, andthe songs. They were distributed afterProf. Clark's talk and before we sang theAlma Mater, the singing of which was improved by the presence of the words. We are now laying our plans to entertainDean Shailer Mathews when he comes toDallas in March. We feel that he will helpus as much as Prof. Clark has done, andthat we are indeed fortunate to get such cooperation in establishing our Club on apermanent basis.Sincerely yours,Rhoda" I.

Harman; Vice-president, Miss GraceChandler: Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. VernonS. Phillips.(b) I feel that our meeting was a verygreat success from the standpoint of oursplendid guest, Dr. Millikan, the large attendance, and the fine enthusiasm of thosepresent. Dr. Millikan gave us a splendid account of the present status of the Universityfrom several very interesting angles. I amhappy to say that his whole address wasfull of evidence of very careful preparationin the matter of presenting us interestingstatistics and bits of information with whichall alumni are anxious to be acquainted. Weowe Dr. Millikan a great debt of gratitudefor using his valuable time for this purpose.You will be interested in knowing thatPresident Chamberlin of Denison University and six members of his faculty attendedour reunion and banquet.In closing may I add that personally Ifeel that, the members of the University ofChicago Club of Central Ohio are fortunatein having Mr. Harman as their president.He is not only thoroughly sympathetic andenthusiastic about the University but alsohas the unusual ability to impart theseQualities to other alumni.If there are any other matters that I haveneglected to add I will be glad to furnishthe same for you.With best wishes, I am.Respectfully,Wm.

Pierrot,University of Chicago, Chicago, 111.Dear Mr. Pierrot:In an effort to get acquainted, the members of the Dallas Club have had two socialgatherings since last I wrote you. The first,a dinner held at the University Club onNovember 18th, was a regular Chicagonight, with an after-dinner program madeup of informal talks by various Alumnipresent. Paul O'Day filled the role ofmaster of ceremonies in most admirablefashion. Hugo Swan gave a delightful discourse on Chicago spirit, not only in athletics but in all departments of college life,using some of the eastern schools as abasis of comparison. Chester Hammill toldsomething of the organization of ChicagoClubs throughout the country, and the purposes for such organization, especially asapplied to the Dallas Club. An interestingfeature was a series of talks on variouscustoms and traditions of the University,such as the "Shanty," the "C" Bench, theplaying of "Alma Mater" on the chimeseach evening, the various social events, as!he Settlement Dance, Blackfriars, SeniorProm, and the Alumni Reunion, interspersed with personal reminiscences, givenbv Clarence Bulger, Rachel Foote, ChesterHammill, Ella Murphy, Rhoda Hammill andProf. Mcintosh. Due attention was givento the singing of Chicago songs, theevening ending with the Alma Mater.A month later on Thursday, December10th, we had a Christmas Party at the homeof Miss Edna Rowe. Here again, the spirit(Continued on page 146)CHANTICLEER . 131Harry M. Shulman, '21, Editor-in-Chief Carroll Lane Fenton, '21, Business Managertory department. It is interested in socialproblems, in the drug question, the spiritualist movement, economic problems, in pension bills, union labor, outlaw unions, socialdrama and literature.It is most unique, however, in the attitudewhich it takes toward the University.

Instead oftaking. the school as a separate entity andrespecting it as such, Chanticleer is interested in seeing just what the relationshipsare between the campus and the city, thestudents and the tide of world movements.A broad, penetrating aim is this, whichshould help greatly in giving the Universitya perspective of itself.Its initial numbers have met with gratifying comment from faculty, from studentsand from many outside journals and individuals.

Elizabeth Roberts, Jessica North, Marion Manly andNelles Rowley, members of the Poetry Club,have helped make the Poetry Club page outstanding in its literary worth. It hasadopted a progressive policy in reviewingnew books and among its first reviews areSinclair Lewis' "Main Street" and UptonSinclair's "100%."Chanticleer, as it is planned, places majoremphasis upon contemporary social andpolitical problems.

Atwood, of Harvard University, as presidentof Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts, on February 1.President-elect Atwood, who was graduated with the degree of S.B. from the University of Chicago in 1897 and received hisDoctor's degree in 1903, was connected withthe university as a member of the Facultyfor fourteen years, and was called to Harvard University in 1913 as professor- ofphysiography. He is a member of theUnited States Geological Survey, was former director of the Chicago Academy ofSciences, and has written among otherscientific works the "Geology of MineralResources of Alaska."The University of Chicago as TrusteeMr. Wallace Heckman, Business Manager of the University, reports that recentlythe University has received additions to itsfunds from donors who have made theUniversity trustee of large amounts, the income of which, or a portion of it, is to beexpended for the benefit of specific personsduring their lifetime, and which, at theirdeath, become part of the University endowment. The latest instance of this sort,just reported, placed in the University'streasury a $110,000 trust fund. The steadygrowth of the University from an institu-.tion with a few hundred students to onewhich gave instruction last year to 10,880men and women is evidence of the good useto which the University's funds have beenput, but it even more emphatically indicatesthe steadily increasing and insistent needsof the Midway institution — needs for additional endowment, for buildings, for scholarships. It is significant of the confidencewhich the University has won that fromChicago where it is best known have comeits more recent gifts of large amounts, suchas those of Hobart W. Williams and LaVerne Noyes, not to mention those whocontributed more than $5,000,000 for development of the University's medical workProfessor A. A. Michelson's RemarkableInventionBy means of an astronomical device perfected by Professor A. A. Michelson, Headof the Department of Physics, the diameterof the bright star Betelgeuse, in the constellation of Orion, has just been measuredat the Mount Wilson Observatory, Cali fornia. Professor George E. Hale, formerly of the University of Chicago, andnow director of the Observatory, says thatno telescope is powerful enough to measure accurately the extremely small anglesubtended by a star, but that this very difficult and delicate task is rendered possibleby the device of Professor Michelson calledan interferometer. It was used in connection with the 100-inch telescope on MountWilson and by means of it the diameter ofBetelgeuse was found to be 300,000,000miles, making the star 300 times the size ofthe sun.A Distinguished Honor for EliakimHastings MooreThe new president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science isProfessor Eliakim Hastings Moore, Headof the Department of Mathematics at theUniversity of Chicago, who is a member ofthe National Academy of Sciences and theAmerican Philosophical Society, and ha1;been president of the American Mathematical Society.

A large heterogeneous audience,pro-Chicago, anti-Chicago, on-the-fencerooters promiscuously mixed • on the benches.A diminutive Chicago cheer leader,hardly waiting to be understood in hisanxiety to cheer the visiting team, gets aresponse that would rend your soul — butnot the disturbed air of Bartlett Gym.

Not one Chicago host to •step forth, sufficiently prepared or enthusiastic, to rouse a unifiedwelcome! Will we be so treated at Princeton next fall?And again on a more recent occasionwhen discourtesy to an official almost assumed the form of farce, who was it thatstepped forth to shame a pro-Chicago audience into courtesy? Was it a Chicagoalumnus or an under-graduate leader? No.This time it was Mr. Stagg who in histypically direct manner called out: "Gentlemen !"Why, with all the fairness and squarenessthat Mr. Stagg has stood for these longyears in Chicago athletics, do we not asindividual alumni and under-graduates exerta firmer influence on our guests and neighbors at these college games? Is our audience too shifting? Is it because we don'tcare? Is it because we are too dignified?Or because we are all women? Or is it because the "Old Man's" influence is feltonly by the members of his teams?

No effort has been made tostampede the Club into a "hurrah" campaign, but every step has been taken withan eye to preparing a foundation on whicha large, sound and lasting superstructuremay be built.The members are considering severalprojects to bring the University ot Chicagoto the attention of the people of Texas withthe view to attracting the best students toour undergraduate and graduate schools.An aggressive secretary has been appointed,who will keep in touch with the secretary ofthe Alumni Council in order to keep theDallas Club in close contact with the activities of the Alma Mater and to bring tothe Alumni such members of the Facultywho may be in the vicinity of Dallas.We have every reason to be proud of thenew organization and our gratitude is dueto the President for his sacrifice in bringingit into being and his foresight in conductingits affairs.Sincerely vours,S.

Sisson, '93"It is the business of a school, of a university, to guide and assist its students inmaking of themselves the best that can bemade of the stuff that is in them. Thesupreme problem for auniversity faculty is themoulding of the curriculum, the order, the wholeregime of the institutionso that it may most effectively aid students intheir task of making thebest that can be madeout of the stuff that isin them, for the life theyare to live." This quotation is from the inaugural address of Edward O. Sisson, '93, delivered at the time of hisinauguration as president of the University ofMontana in 1917.Edward Octavius Sisson was born at Gateshead, England, May 24,1869, the son of Georgeand Mary (Arnott) Sisson. At the age of thirteen he came to America.After the usual preparatory education, he entered Kansas State Agricultural College, at Manhattan, from which institution he was graduated, B. S., in 1886. He was one of the firststudents at the new University of Chicago,where, in 1893, he received the degree ofA. B., so that he is a member of the firstclass graduated at Chicago. He spent aconsiderable period of study at the University of Berlin, and, after returning toAmerica, studied at Harvard University,where he received the degree of Ph.D. in1905.For his life work, Edward Sisson quiteearly chose the field of education. Theprogress of his studies, as outlined above,clearly indicates that he was determined toobtain as thorough a preparation as possible. During the period of study for hisdegrees, however, he did not confine himselfto study alone, but, as time permitted, entered practical work in education. From1886 to 1891 he was a teacher and principalof public schools; from 1892 to 1897 he wasprincipal of the South Side Academy, Chicago; and from 1897 to 1904 he was directorEdward O. Sisson, '93of Bradley Polytechnic Institute at Peoria,Illinois. After receiving his Ph.D. atHarvard, he went to the University of Illinois as assistant professor of education. Hewas then called to the University of Washington, where, from 1906to 1912, he was professorof pedagogy and directorof the Department ofEducation. In 1909, heserved as president of theWashington State Educational Association. In1912-1913 he was head ofthe Department of Education at Reed College,Portland, Oregon, andfrom 1913 to 1917 he wasCommissioner of Education for the state ofIdaho. His strong workhad attracted wide attention, particularly in theNorthwest, so that whenthe State Board of Education of Montana wasseeking the right manfor president of the StateUniversity, he stood outas the man desired forthat highly responsibleposition. On August 20,1917, he took office aspresident of the University of Montana, at Missoula, which office he hassince occupied with distinction.President Sisson's services as a lecturerhave been in demand throughout the entirecountry. In 1910 he published a volume,"The Essentials of Character"; he is alsothe joint author of two other importantbooks, "The Social Emergency," publishedin 1913, and the "Principles of SecondaryEducation," published in 1914. He has contributed a number of articles to educationaljournals. He has served as a member ofthe advisory council of the Simplified Spelling Board, and on the revision committee onsecondary education of the National Educational Association. He is a member ofthe Association of College Teachers ofEducation, of the Religious Education Association, and of Beta Theta Pi fraternity.In 1899, Doctor Sisson was married toMiss Nellie May Stowell of Lawn Ridge,Illinois. There are two children.In the University of Montana Alumni(Continued on page 145)ALUMNI 137Frederick A. Speik, '05, M. D. '07As candidates for consideration for ourown patented "Hall of Fame," the Far Westis well able to present a number of prominent alumni. Among them, however, shouldcertainly be included Frederick A. Speik,'05, M. D. (Rush) '07. For anybody canprobably become a physician by imitation;some of us, no doubt, might become fairlygood doctors; but to become one of thebest, one of the leading physicians in alarge metropolitan community, and at acomparatively early age — well, sir, that'sanother story. Or, rather, that's this particular story.Although we still think of him as a Chicagoan, Frederick A. Speikis a "native son," for hewas born, January 26,1882, at Stockton, California. H i s father, amanufacturer and grocer,seemed unable to interestson Fred in the grocerybusiness for any length oftime, Fred evidently preferring to join that classof citizens who want tohang out a shingle andthen see what happens.What happened to Fred,or better, what he causedto happen, will be relateda moment later.Fred Speik came to Chicago and, after completinghis preparatory educationat the Northwest DivisionHigh School, entered theUniversity of Chicago inthe autumn of 1901. Hehad too much energymerely to sit around andwatch the show — so forfour good years he wasfrequently a prorninentpart of the show himself.on committee after committee, and, according to the recent "intelligence test" conducted at the University, we draft him intoClass A. He was a University Marshall, amember of the Junior and Senior CollegeCouncils, several times a class officer, amember of the Water Polo Team of '05,on the Track Team three years, won fourfootball "C's," and became Captain of the1904 Football Team. Certainly everybodywho followed football in the thresholddays of this century can recall Speik's finework on the gridiron; more than one victorywas due to his great playing at left end.One reason why he advanced so rapidlylater in life was that he followed the OldMan's teaching of always playing the gamefairly and hard. Speik was a member ofOwl and Serpent and other class societies,and is a member of Phi Delta Theta col-}ege fraternity and of Nu Sigma Nu medicalfraternity. Frederick A. Speik, '05, M. D. '07He was placed After receiving his degree in 1905, heentered Rush Medical School, from whichinstitution he was graduated in 1907. Fora time he assisted Mr. Stagg in coaching,and then went west to enter professionalwork in medicine in Los Angeles. Forfour years, from 1915 to 1919, he was Professor of Medicine at the University ofSouthern California, Los Angeles, gainingdistinction for his work in Internal Medicine, the field in which he chose to specialize. He maintained private offices, however, in that city; his office is now in theAuditorium Building. For some time, Dr.Speik has been consultant on the staff ofthe Los Angeles County Hospital, and onthe staff of the PasadenaHospital.In 1909 he was marriedto Edith Lawton, '06, ofChicago. The Speiks havethree children, and resideat 1625 Fair Oaks avenue,Pasadena.During the war, Dr.Speik served on the Volunteer Medical Corps. In1918 he was president ofthe Pasadena Medical Society, and he is a memberof the Clinical and Pathological Society of LosAngeles. He has publishedarticles in the NorthwestMedical Journal and in theJournal of the AmericanMedical Association. Heis a member of the University Clubs of LosAngeles and Chicago, andof the Los Angeles Athletic Club.Fred says that his hobbyis "motoring" — but, then,he is a "native son," so motoring is more of a habitthan a hobby. He has always been keenlyinterested in alumni affairs, being particularly active in our Southern California Club.Indeed, at the present time he and Mrs.Speik enjoy the unique distinction of serving jointly as secretary of that organization.Speik, perhaps, has the long-distance recordfor attendance at our June reunions, for hehas attended many, coming from "far-offCalifornia" to be on hand. About the University? Well, this is what he says: "Ithink it is the best University in the country; I owe much to it."

Theleaders selected by the UndergraduateCouncil for the event are Frank Hardestyand Ellen Gleason, who will lead the rightwing, and John Ashenhurst and FannieTempleton, who will lead the left. All fourleaders, according to custom, are seniors.The past month has witnessed two movesby the Undergraduate Council which havehad as their aim co-operation with the faculty in solving campus problems. After aninvestigation of conditions in Cobb Hall,where the congestion was becoming sogreat between classes that the situationseemed impossible, the Council recommended a traffic plan which was approvedby the faculty. The plan involves a "oneway" traffic system and requires the servicesof two uniformed ' "traffic cops" in CobbHall, but has resulted in a great lighteningof the congestion and has allowed studentsto get to their classes on time. The Councilhas also, in co-operation with the DailyMaroon, taken up an investigation of thephysical culture situation. So many complaints have been received from studentsthat a thorough investigation is to be madefrom the student point of view and the results will be submitted to the faculty committee, which is in charge of physical culture requirements.Physical culture credit is now necessaryfor eligibility for public appearance. Theenforcement of this ruling is causing somedifficulty among activities.The Portfolio production, "Joy of Sing*-hai," written by Josephine Strode, '21, andproduced by the W. A. A. in Mandel Hallon February 4, 5, 11 and 12, was characterized by the Daily Maroon reviewer as"a complete triumph." Grace Bennett, '22,made a brilliant success of her stellar dancing part in this first effort by the women toproduce a musical comedy.Chanticleer, the new fortnightly maga zine which is seeking to reflect the more intellectual side of campus life, made its bowon January 17. The feature of the issue wasan article by Professor Dodd entitled "TheMeaning of the Recent Elections." HarryShulman, '21, is editor, and Carroll LaneFenton, '21, business manager. An article onthe Chanticleer appears in this number.Harold Lasswell, '21; Alex Hillman, '21,and John Ladner, '21, made up the affirmative team in the Chicago-Michigan debatein Mandel Hall on January 21. Royal Montgomery, '22, Jerome Hall, '21, and RalphSturman, '23, upheld the negative at Northwestern the same night. The question was:"Resolved, That the United States ShouldAdopt the Parliamentary Form of Government." The debate was run on a new plan,the audience taking part, and no formal decision was given.Students no longer get slips in chapel onwhich to note their attendance. Under anew plan suggested by Dean Robertson,each student at the first of the quarter selected a seat which he wished to occupy atevery service for the rest of the quarter. Achart was made of these seats and the attendance is now checked up by the ushers.Endeavoring to arouse keener class spirit.the Junior class gave an exclusive formaiProm in the Reynolds Club on the night ofJanuary 28. Another plan to increase classspirit has resulted in a series of interclassbasketball games. The winner of the seriesis to receive a cup. Games are played onenight a week in Bartlett and the classes sitin reserved sections with class cheer-leadersand pennants to increase the enthusiasm.These plans appear successful."Chicago in China" is the motto for an all-University drive for funds which startedFebruary 11.

For the benefit of thosewho are far away, the scores thus far are:Chicago, 39; Wisconsin, 27.Illinois, 33; Chicago, 29.Chicago, 42; Iowa, 17.Chicago, 32; Ohio, 21.Michigan, 16; Chicago, 14.Iowa, 17; Chicago 16.Chicago, 19; Minnesota, 17.To start with, the team this year is not asgood, in fact is hot anywhere near as good,as the championship outfit of last season.Hinkle is missed, for one thing. McGuireis playing a remarkably steady game for anew man, and it is unfair to measure himby Hinkle's standards, for it is his firstseason as a regular, but the potentialstrength of Chicago is not as high as in1920. Halladay is playing good basketball,but he should be playing better — he has itin him. Birkhoff is the same reliable individual and is leading the conference inpoints scored. Vollmer started strong, butwas sick when the Michigan game wasplayed, and was able to get into the Iowadisaster for only a part of the time. Andeven against Minnesota, a week later, hecould ring but one basket. Capt. Crisler isplaying a conspicuously reliable back guard,and his hard work is the big feature of theChicago defense.Those men are the team. The "subs" average up much weaker. Stahr, on past performances, is probably the best, but he hasbeen sick more or less all season. Runyonhas been played a lot, but he looks bad.There is little satisfaction in going over thelist — the fact remains that five men are farsuperior to the rest of the squad. Theteamwork of the Maroons has not been exceptional all season. In the home games, atleast, it has. been individual work, ratherthan team play, that has characterized theChicago game. Certainly Wisconsin had abetter knit unit, but Vollmer, Birkhoff andHalladay were shooting baskets that nightfrom all angles. Illinois won on its homefloor — an overtime battle, after Chicago hadcome from behind in the last few minutesand made six points. Then the team cameback and slaughtered the Iowa five, which,on the Bartlett floor, certainly looked to bethe weakest outfit that ever came from outof the west. The Ohio game at Columbuswas fairly easy. Then Michigan came alongwith five husky players and a tight defense,which simply smothered the Maroon team-play. The climax came when the Iowateam, on its own floor, and after taking a °— »n— .a— m— -m— D.__ uu-_ Da—_ mu— in— ru— hu.^,d^— ib n— a*}.Jetics I42-17 beating, defeated Chicago by onepoint. The Minnesota game, which was almost lost in the last minute or two, was arather unsatisfactory victory, for neitherteam looked good..More cheerful than was first supposed isthe track outlook. The first competition wasin the I. A. C. handicap meet, in which theteam took 18 points. The medley relay team,of Capt. Harris, Joe Hall, Bartky and Krogh,had no competition from Northwestern, theonly other entrant, but Tom Eck declaresthat his combination will give them all arun. Brinkman won the 600-yard race froma good field, with only a conservative handicap, and Roberts and Pierce finished thirdand fourth. Kennan, a sophomore, tookthird in the 1,000-yard run, a.nd Rittenhouse,also a sophomore, was fourth in the standing broad jump. Fouche missed placing inthe shot by half an inch. Harris looks capable of taking at least a second, if not a first,in the conference, and Hall is another- prospective point winner, besides being a contender in the 220. Murphy, in the sprint,showed well in the I. A. C. meet, beingnosed out in both heats by Murchison, whofinally won the race. Murphy will undoubtedly place in the conference. His time outdoors for the hundred is 10 1-5. Bartky, according to the information, is the class ofthe half-milers, and able to run a good 440if the need is great. Krogh, a sophomore, iscutting his time in the mile all the time, andnow is reputed to be better than a 4:38 runner. In the field events, Fouche, who isineligible until the end of the month, is astrong shot putter and in the spring will bea certain winner of the discus. McWilliamsis good for shot-put points in the dualmeets, but probably not for the conference.B. Hall is doing 11 feet 5 inches in the vault,which is hardly good enough to do much,but he is the only hope. For the mile relaythere will be Harris, Bartky, Hall and probably Pierce, who is also a fair half-miler.Competition with Big Ten teams startsshortly.Coach White is lamenting the loss ofCapt. Meagher, who set the new conferencerecord in the plunge last winter, and whohad already made 16 2-5 this season.Meagher has been wavering on eligibilityfor a long time, and the Law School finallydecided him for good. Gordon, the otherman in the event, is good enough to winfirst in the conference, probably, but evenso, three points, which may give Northwestern the title, have been lost. Harold Yegge,'21, the best of the backstroke men, waselected captain to replace Meagher.W. V.

A lack ofacquaintance with art in their own earlyschool days has made many educators diffidentabout their ability to advise or to draw conclusions regarding it. It has seemed to many students of education a subject which presentedpeculiar difficulties and required unusual capabilities on the part of pupils. Regarding thissituation Professor Whitford says in introducing his discussions : "Efficiency in education isdemanding more perfect methods of instruction, higher standards of attainment,broader surveys of social and industrialneeds to determine aims and objectives forsubject matter, scientific methods of measur ing- attainment of aims of the various subjects of the school, and curriculum-building which will eliminate waste of timeand energy on the part of both pupil andteacher. All of these demands apply to the de-I partment ofart education." H ethen proceeds to asurvey ofthe interestsin and demands forart whichgrow out ofthe condi-t i o n s ofmodern life,and presentsc o n s i d -erations o nthe subjectmatter andstandards ofattain-ment whichaccord withthese interests and demands.ProfessorWhitford isspending thewinter quarter in the South, where he willvisit art departments of various schools, andalso industries which require artistic skillin connection with their products in orderthat he may secure information pertainingto_ American industrial art. These visitswill supplement his previous investigationsin other sections, of the country.In organizing art study for primarygrades one of the matters of discussion hasbeen the extent to which the drawing oflittle children should be guided. The wisdom of any detailed or systematic guidancein the . kindergarten has been definitelyquestioned on the ground that it would interfere with the spontaneous quality inwhich lies much of the value of the drawing of small children, and would turn theirattention from free narrative expression toa formal study of facts of appearance. Anexperiment to secure some data bearing onthis question was planned by Mr. LouisSandhusen, an instructor in the department of Art Education this year, and wascarried out in several kindergartens. Mr.Sandhusen is at present tabulating theresults. They seem to show, that considerable guidance, more in fact than has beenTHE SOMBER FOREST, By Professor Walter SargentOF ART EDUCATION 141customary, may be given even as early as inthe kindergarten, not only without checking freedom of expression, but actuallyadding to it, by the impetus of increasedknowledge of forms.Professor Sargent has resumed his regular work in the department after anabsence of nine months. He spent thistime in writing and painting in the vicinityof Boston. He had opportunity to studythe present movement in art in Massachusetts, and to conduct two conferences in arteducation, one at the State Normal Schoolat Salem, and one for the supervisors of artin Eastern Massachusetts, held under theauspices of the Department of Education ofBoston University. Mr. Sargent has supplemented his educational work by somewhat intimate experiences with the actualprocesses of art. Two exhibitions of hispaintings have been held during the pastthree months; one in Boston and one in Chicago. During the past two years someof his paintings have also been shown atthe Art Institutes of Chicago, Indianapolis,St. Louis, and Youngstown, and at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, and theAlbright Gallery in Buffalo.Miss Hollister is out of residence for thewinter quarter. She has gone south to advise regarding the organizing of art coursesat the Fairhope, Alabama, School, but willreturn at the opening oi the spring quarter.The department has secured for some ofits courses the services of Miss Laura vanPappelendam, Miss Ethel Coe, instructors atthe Art Institute of Chicago, and paintersof much ability, and Mr. Howard Morse,whose excellent courses in design at the ArtInstitute are well known. Miss Jean Kim-ber of the Harris Teachers' College, St.Louis, is to give courses during the summerquarter.Unfolding LeavesBy Professor Walter Sargent II4We are pleased to present with this article views of two paintings by Professor WalterSargent of the Department of Art.

These associations,while maintaining separate organizations formatters of peculiar interest to their members,unite as one general association, in actingfor the alumni as a whole, under the AlumniCouncil, the central executive body. Allassociations have proportionate representation on this Council. Active membershipin the School of Education Alumni Association carries with it membership in thegeneral association also. The Council,'among other activities, maintains the general alumni office, keeps up various alumnifiles, conducts the general June reunion,and publishes the University of ChicagoMagazine. Each issue has material of interest not only to members of each association, but material, also, on educational, university, and alumni affairs, of interest to allalumni. The co-operation of all associationsin the common interest of the Universityhas always been of the highest kind. Theofficers of the School of Education AlumniAssociation are: Principal L. W. Smith,Joliet, Illinois, president; and Miss DeliaKibbe, The University Elementary School,Chicago, secretary.The Alumni FundIn December, 1919, the Alumni Councilbegan a campaign for an alumni fund bysending two letters to the graduates of theUniversity. On December 1, 1920, therewere 547 life memberships, 112 sustainingmemberships, and 24 endowment memberships, a total of 683, with total subscriptionsof $86,273. Although payments are arranged on the installment plan, about fiftyper cent has been paid in; over $43,000 hadbeen contributed by February 1, 1921. Thishas been advantageously invested in Liberty Bonds and placed in the charge of aboard of directors, of which Frank McNairof Chicago is chairman. The first goal,$100,000, is in sight and the affairs of thealumni organization are assured of a permanent foundation.Recent School of Education EventsThe Kindergarten-Primary Club gave adinner for its members in Ida Noyes Hall,Thursday evening, January 20.Professor Jernegan of the History Department addressed the Education Club atits meeting on January 19.

Davenport (The University ofChicago Press):Evolution, heredity, and eugenics arewords that suggest to the gentle reader subjects of great interest and immense importance. When they are presented inpopular form by those who are simply reporters, the reader has a right to questionthe reliability of the information. Whenthey are presented in scientific form bythose who are investigators, the reader isapt to be lost in terminology.Heredity and Eugenics is a book intendedto present the recent developments ofknowledge in reference to evolution, heredity, and eugenics, and related subjects.Five of the leading investigators in this fieldhave collaborated in its production, and theresult is a work which will appeal to thegeneral public, because it presents the latestconclusions in a popular and extremely interesting manner. The authors are eminently fitted to discuss that branch of thesubject covered by their respective contributions to the work. Each one has borne in mind that he isaddressing readers untrained in biology.Great care has therefore been devoted tomaking clear the present position of evolution, concerning which there has developedmuch misunderstanding in the public mind.The work discusses in detail the most recent experimental work upon heredity, inconnection with both plants and animals. Itexplains the visible machinery of heredity,so far as discovered, and the results of theiroperation. It shows the enormous value ofthe practical application of these . laws inthe breeding of plants and animals, by meansof which old forms may be improved, newcombinations may be obtained, and entirelynew forms may be secured.Finally, the human interest of the subjectis included in a presentation of what isknown as to the inheritance of physical andmental traits in man. The subject of humaneugenics is -discussed, and notable illustrative pedigrees are given.In the work all technicalities have beenavoided wherever possible. It is a book designed pre-eminently for the general reader.Eugenics is a subject which is deservedlyattracting a growing interest on the partof thinking men and women, and to thislarge class the book is offered as an instructive and invaluable presentation of thesubject.OF EDUCATION—PROMINENT ALUMNI 145(Continued from page 143)'19, Maud Harnish may be addressed at541 West 124th Street, New York City.

We talked over several plans bymeans of which we, as a class, can keep intouch with each other. The remainder ofthe evening was devoted to dancing.Altogether it was a most successful partyand reminded us all of the good times wehad as "undergrads." But just because weare no longer "undergrads" is by no meansan indication that our party days are over.Naturally we can't get together as frequently — now that we are out of school —but whenever the '20's have a reunion, it'sbound to be a most successful, peppy affair,at which everyone enjoys himself to thelimit and is mighty glad he came.

There werepresent on that occasion twenty-five, out ofthe forty-two, Chicago doctors in this department and, in consultation with the secretary of the Association, they have undertaken to organize a section of the Association, to be known as the Psychology Sectionof the Chicago Doctors of Philosophy. Theobject of this section is to intensify interestof all doctors in this department in the University and to increase the loyalty of thesupport from the doctors as a whole byvirtue of increased loyalty in the section.For instance, one of their slogans at theoutset is to largely increase the number oflife memberships from their group in theAlumni Association; in fact, to make thisnumber as nearly 100 per cent as may be.; possible.Another object of this sectional organization is to encourage the members of thisgroup to come in a body to all the nationalscientific meetings of the psychology peopleand whenever such a gathering occurs tohold a meeting of the Chicago doctors inthat body, in this way increasing acquaintanceship among themselves but also extending their acquaintance among all thosewho are active in psychological linesthroughout the country.This, it seems, is a most valuable suggestion to other departments and this ques-.tion will be discussed at the Annual Meeting of the Association next June with thehope of arousing much interest in a procedure of this kind. There seems to be noreason why there should not be a dozen orfifteen such sections of the Doctors' Association, each contributing to the generalwelfare of the doctors as a whole while, atthe same time, greatly intensifying the interest and activities of each group by itself.At a meeting of the American Associationfor the Advancement of Science at Chicago,during the Christmas holidays, Dr. G.

The University year of whichwe have now completed six months makesit plain that unless unforeseen conditionsshould arise we shall again come throughthe year on the right side of the ledger."Of course I am aware that there areinstitutions which maintain a different policy and expect to expend annually morethan their annual income. Such institutionsmake up the deficit by appeals to alumniand friends. We believe, however, that itis wiser not to call on alumni and friendsof the University for aid at all, unless forthe development of some new and important advance. This we did in 1916-17for the Medical Schools. This was donefrom time to time for the erection of newbuildings."Institute for Church WorkersAnnouncement is just made for the Winter Quarter at the University of Chicago, ofthe Institute for Church Workers, whichwill hold sessions Mondays from January10 to March 14.

Pierrot,University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:At the Annual Benefit of the CollegeClub, St. Louis Branch American CollegiateAlumni, Chicago had a good healthy groupof people to join in the response for Chicago. The song chosen to be sung this yearwas "I'm Strong for Chicago." The Benefit was held at the Schubert theatre, onTuesday, December 14, and the play wasAdam and Eva, Molly Mclntyre starring.This is an annual affair and the money isused for scholarships for girls. Each yearabout ten girls are given scholarships.Between the acts the various collegeshave always sung or given yells. Chicagohas been rather poorly represented in pastyears, but last year a group of Alumni sang"I'm Strong for Chicago" from theparquet aisle. In the group of Alumni andChicagoites singing were Mr. and Mrs.Mendel Branom, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Sacket,Miss Alice Glatfelter, Miss Edith GlatfelterMiss Mable McQuiston, Miss Amelia Racy,Miss Julia Randall, Mr. George Holferty,Mrs. Evarts Graham, Miss E. Olive Davis,and Mr. and Mrs. Judge Boggs. Five orsix boys from Soldan High School gleeclub helped to swell the chorus, so that arousing song rang out when old Chicago'sname was called.. Very truly yours,Edith E. Glatfelter, S.

We also issue yearlythe Proceedings of the National Conference of Social Work, which is a corresponding organization of people activelyconnected with philanthropy and charities.Together the two volumes record the significant literature in both theoretical andapplied sociology each year. We expectto publish in the summer, for use in nextfall's classes, an elementary sociology text;'An Introduction to the Science of Sociology," by Messrs. Park and Burgess ofthe Sociology faculty. The teaching ofsociology has changed" strikingly in the lastfew years, and the methods of this book,which develops the science of sociology inan entirely new way, will have an importanteffect upon the teaching of the next decade.Our publications in business material areparticularly significant — the Journal ofPolitical Economy, edited by the Department of Political Economy, and a series ofbooks of materials for the study of businessand economics are rapidly expanding intoevery field of business activity. The seriesbegan with "Materials for the Study of Elementary Economics," by L. C. Marshall,C. W. Wright and J. A. Field, and has expanded rapidly with W. H. Hamilton's"Current Economic Problems," H. G.Moulton's "Principles of Money and Banking," E. G. Nourse's "Agricultural Eco- ■nomics," and L. C. Marshall's "Readings in. Industrial Society," and A. C. Hodge andJ. O. McKinsey's "Principles of Accounting.""The Financial Organization of Society,"by Associate Professor H. G. Moulton,which is just off the press, is a volume ofexceptional merit because it is unique in thefield of financial literature. Previous bookshave concerned themselves with only oneaspect or one financial institution, while DrMoulton in his book gives the business mana description which shows the interrelationsbetween the various types of financial institutions, as the commercial banks, savingsbanks, bond houses, underwriters, trustcompanies, stock exchanges, commercialpaper and discount companies, etc., and thegeneral relation of the whole structure tothe economic and industrial order. We expect to publish this summer and fall a three-volume work on "Law and Business," byHerman Oliphant and William H. Spencer.There are other important projects whichit is not possible to enumerate here. ThePress, and the Publication Departmentparticularly, invites the constructive criticism of both faculty and alumni.

Tooiten they think the answer is merely alatter of capital, or of finding a partner,f of being sure of so much patronage.And the Institute man is able to pointat that the reason so many businessmtures fail is because the men at the:ad have been departmental men andnow only their own part in the prob-m of successful organization. Selling, accounting, corporation finance, factory and office management,transportation, advertising, merchandising — each of these is a link in thechain. And many a chain that is otherwise strong breaks because one link isweak.The representative of the Institutenever intrudes; he never attempts toexert pressure. Every day applicationsfor enrolment in the Modern BusinessCourse and Service are refused to menwho, in the opinion of the Institute* a representative, are not equipped to profit by it.You cannot impose on himAmong all the business men in yourvicinity- the Institute man is unique inthis — he can only succeed as you aremore successful.

Just as the most modern and efficientdynamite machinery is never considered infallible ; just as thesimplest and most obvious process is never taken for granted ;so the accuracy and uniformity of the finished product is neverconceded without complete verification.Every lot of dynamite, after it has passed the chemical laboratories, must be tested repeatedly for sensitiveness by actualexplosion before it is shipped. Upon the men in charge of thisimportant work at the Testing Ground depends, in no smallmeasure, the uniformly high quality of Hercules Explosives.It is because of this constant testing— this skillful verificationof quality— that, wherever Hercules Explosives are used — inblasting out a stump or a mountain, in diamond mines orstone quarries, digging a ditch or changing the course of amighty river — their power can always be depended, upon bythose who seek their aid.
