APRIL, 1921 No. 61Events and CommentAll readers of the Magazine, a large percentage of whom are already life, sustainingor endowment subscribers,The Alumni will be highly pleased to learnFund, Grows that ^ur Alumni Fund hasnow over $103,500 in subscriptions, and has close to $60,000, or overfifty per cent, paid in. The fund was startedbut fifteen months ago; it is clearly marching toward real success. During this monthof April, the Fund Committee — alwaysalert and eager — is sending a letter to allalumni inviting those who* have not yetsubscribed to do so before June 11th. Nodoubt there must be many alumni who,compelled for some reason or other to delaysubscribing, are ready and willing to subscribe now. So far as you loyal readersof the Magazine are concerned, we think itis mostly a case of "eventually — why notnow?" And we miss a most confident guessif many of you do not tie up with us atthis auspicious time. For in what betterway could we mark our Thirtieth Anniversary Reunion than by announcing an increased fund list of many hundreds, andan amount subscribed that would quicklyenable your Alumni Association to commence conspicuous service to our University?If a university education does anything,it inculcates a clear recognition of the principle that only as we render constructiveservice do we make our lives really effective, truly worth' while. Such service,of course, can be, and is already beingrendered by our alumni in various worthyfields; but sooner or later the field of highereducation engages our attention. University men and women, who more than allothers appreciate, or should appreciate, itsincalculable value, must have a sincere desire to take at least some part, howeversmall, in furthering the progress of university service. And, naturally enough, theinstitution which has, to the very limit ofits powers, contributed much to their own education, to their own enrichment, to theirposition and success, is, and should be, thefirst object of their attention. They knowits aims, its needs, its present limitations,and how well it can turn every possiblecontribution to the highest possible account.For Chicago men and women the Fund offers, therefore, a definite opportunity forthe expression of this high, constructivespirit.Our present alumni generation are thepioneers — pioneering, indeed, is an American heritage and characteristic. Not tohave taken some part in this particularmovement, at a time when sturdy pioneering spirit and broad vision are needed, maywell bring later regrets to many. As theyears pass, the Fund unquestionably willgrow, will touch the million mark and runconsiderably over it, and will prove anunfailing source of benefit to our University. But these great things do not comewithout the proper foundation — and ours isthe pioneering task of laying a foundationthat will assure them. Yet, in addition tothe satisfaction of knowing that we areworthy pioneers, we can have the addedsatisfaction of seeing our work prove ofincreasing assistance all along the way. A$100,000 cornerstone has been laid. Yourcontribution, your brick to be added to thisnoble structure, will be welcome!Last January, as noted in the Magazine,the Chicago chapter of the Delta Upsilonfraternity celebrated its twentiethSpecial anniversary. Aside from its suc-Reunions cess locally, the significant feature, from an alumni point ofview, was that it brought back to ourQuadrangles many of the fraternity's alumni.indeed, a number who somehow had beenout of touch with the university for yearsresponded to this special call, and againrenewed interest in Chicago. Next June,we understand, Alpha Delta Phi will celebrate its "twenty-fifth anniversary at Chi-205THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcago. We learn, too, that among theclasses, '16, '11 and '96, in particular, muchinterest is being shown in an observanceof special class anniversaries, from the fifthto the twenty-fifth. The general reunionitself observes a thirtieth anniversary. Allthis is as it should be. As an institution,we are not "old," as age goes. Yet wehave reached a place on the highway whereimportant years are now behind us, wheresignificant milestones of progress can beset up. Classes, clubs, fraternities, associations, departments, other organizations, allcan certainly begin, if they have not already done so, to observe with fullest activity tenth, twentieth, twenty-fifth andsimilar reunions. The Old University canobserve, this year, a sixty-fifth anniversary —a milestone of no small importance so faras milestones go in American, and especiallywestern, universities. Such special occasions always have a keen attraction for mostall of us — we like to take part in the Paradeof Time — and often many whose imaginations are not otherwise aroused are stimulated into active interest by a timely callfor some such unusual event. Every Chicago organization should seize upon anddevelop every such opportunity. The particular alumni appealed to will not onlybe reached, and their attachment renewed,but such activities will rapidly widen thecircle of our interested and loyal alumniin general. All in all, folks, we may beyoung, but we are no longer quite asvoung as we sometimes think we are. 'WiiiinuiiniiiiiiiiHimiiiiiHiiiiiuiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiKiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiii!On another page in this number is notedthe sending out to the alumni, by the Officeof the President, of a beau-The Booklet tiful booklet, "The University of Chicago in 1921,"which tells of the present condition of theUniversity, of some of its achievements, andof its aims and hopes for the future. Infact, it is in the nature of a special reporton the University, made for and to heralumni. Very likely, somewhat similarmessages may be sent to the alumni fromtime to time. Surely the alumni will realize,to a degree never realized before, that theirUniversity wants them to know of, and tobe kept in touch with University affairs andprogress, that they are truly regarded "athome" as a part of the University, not intheory but in fact. The booklet, it is needless to add, will be read by all with a feeling of pride in what has already been accomplished, and of enthusiasm for the greatadvance soon to come. To know, furthermore, that we are now on the way to takesome part, with privilege and honor, toward that advancement, cannot but be asource of gratification to all of us who claimher as our Alma Mater.

The bonds are in the safekeeping of the bank which holds the securitiesof the University. The books and accountsof the Fund have recently been audited bycertified public accountants. No part of thereceipts have been or are being used in carrying on the campaign. Within little morethan a year the Fund has become the largest in number of subscriptions, in amountsubscribed, and in amount paid in, of allthe Alumni Funds of this special nature ofwhich we know; at least two of the largestuniversities of the country have adopted ourplan almost in toto.A prominent alumnus recently asked whatthe Fund would mean to the Alumni;would it mean a larger and better magazine, a larger and more pretentious Alumnioffice and equipment, or just what would itmean? The question is pertinent and logical and it probably is in the minds of agood many of the alumni. Here is theanswer as the writer sees it:Aside from the money raised, the campaign has had an undoubted value in bringing the importance and possibilities of theAssociation before the alumni in a waywhich has not been possible before and ithas quickened interest in Alumni affairsgenerally; it has demonstrated a loyalty andinterest which has not been popularlyascribed to our Alumni and to the Alumniof institutions in large centers of population. With a substantial amount of moneyin a treasury which heretofore has had relatively no money, deliberations naturallytake on added dignity and importance, andplans for the future are looked at throughdifferent glasses. Looking at the mattermore immediately, a very substantial membership has been assured for the life of themembers, giving a definite basis for continued existence without the necessity ofconstant vigilance on renewals, etc.One. of the misapprehensions of the Fundis the thought that with the substantialamount subscribed and collected it wouldbe possible to rather promptly do something in a considerable way. It must beborne in mind that every subscriber is annually credited with $2.00 for magazine andAssociation dues even when the incomefrom partial payments on subscriptionsdoes not equal this amount: also when $50subscriptions are fully paid the $2.00 annually charged against the income practically consumes it. Putting it another way,the subscriber has contributed a sum, the income from which permanently pays hisAssociation dues and magazine subscription. Fund expenditures are intended to berestricted to income, leaving the principalintact. Even so, the income from investments is becoming such that the time is notfar distant when we may make a beginningin using the income from time to time in away best to serve the University. The Trustees of the Fund will be more than happyto have suggestions which can have matureconsideration against the time when surplusfunds will be available for use, and in thisconnection the following suggestions havealready been made:1. The endowment of a Departmental Chair in the new Medical School.2. The creation of special scholarships.3. The establishment of a travelinglectureship which should principallyfocus in centers where we have AlumniClubs.4. The enlargement of the curriculum of the University College (downtown branch — largely advanced workfor teachers).5. The establishment of a revolvingdepartmental allowance which in turnwould give a sum of money to variousdepartments of the University, none ofwhich is ever able to get the full appropriations needed.Other suggestions will be welcome.Taking a long distance view, this Fundwill undoubtedly be large and important,but presumably none of us wish to leave itseffectiveness too much to posterity; another$50,000, say, would hurry the realization ofsome hopes and greatly strengthen the Association because of the additional permanent membership; $100,000 additional wouldput us squarely on the map and give us realpower for constructive accomplishments.June 11th is Alumni Day, the thirtiethreunion. The New York Club is launchinga special campaign to raise a considerableportion of $100,000 additional subscriptions.The Southern California Club has just hadits largest meeting and is planning aggressive work on the Fund. Activity continuesliterally throughout the whole country._ Aletter embodying the above report is beingsent to all of the Alumni of known addresses, and it is hoped to greatly enlargethe Fund between this and Alumni Day.Frank McNair, '03,Chairman, Alumni Fund Committee.THE UNIVERSITY OE CHICAGO MAGAZIJShAlumni Affairs I!-n— MfBChicago Alumnae Club Annual MeetingThe Chicago Alumnae Club held its annual meeting and election of officers atluncheon at the Chicago College Club onApril 2, 1921. About one hundred members attended.The committee and officers' reportsshowed that the club has a philanthropicbudget of five hundred dollars a year whichis met by contributions from members.This includes a four quarter scholarship atthe University, a contribution of one hundred dollars a year to the University ofOhicago Settlement (which needs this support and has a deficit for the year just ending of about two thousand dollars), and acontribution of one hundred dollare a yearto the Chicago Collegiate Bureau of Occupations (which has just published its firstvocational research report: Opportunitiesfor Trained Women as Employment, Labor and Industrial Relations Managers, byFlorence Taylor). The library committeeof the club reported that it needs muchlarger and more numerous contributions oftext books to be rented out through theclub library to students in college. Theofficers of the club made a strong appealfor the continued financial and other support of all members to the club's philanthropies.The new officers elected are:Mrs. Howard L. Willett (Grace Williamson, '07), 190 East Chestnut street, Chicago,was elected president for the next two years.Miss Frances Henderson, '20, 203 Forestavenue, Oak Park, was elected secretary forthe next two years.Miss Emily A. Frake, as vice-president,and Miss Charlotte Merrill, treasurer, Hinsdale, 111., have each another "year of theirterms to serve.Miss Helen Norris and Miss Grace A.Coulter were elected delegates to theAlumni Council.Following the business meeting therewas a reception to the incoming officers andto Miss Margaret Wilson, '04. Miss Wilsonhas become well known throughout thecountry by her stories published in the Atlantic Monthly under the noffl de plume"An Elderly Spinster," and she read oneof her unpublished stories.In taking office Mrs. Willett announcedas the next meeting of the Alumnae Club,the Alumnae breakfast held at Reuniontime by the club for all of the home-comingwomen, and the invitation to this nextmeeting: "Come to the breakfast and havea good time I" The Madame Curie Radium FundMadame Marie Curie, most distinguishedof university women, most distinguished ofwomen scientists, due from Paris May 17,will be welcomed by the University Womenof the United States May 18 at 4:30 p. Carnegie Hall. The meeting is being organized by the Association of CollegiateAlumnae, the American branch of the International Federation of UniversityWomen. College women are invited to attend. To be sure that Chicago is represented delegates will be sent.More than anything else in the world,Madame Curie wants one gram of radiumfor experimental purposes. Scientists hopethat, working with a single gram, she maybe able to eliminate cancer. Let us give herthat single gram. One gram of radiumcosts $100,000. In the United States thereare 100,000 college women.Make checks payable to the Marie CurieRadium Fund. Address Women's UniversityClub, 106 East 52d street, New York City.That gram of radium is not on the market. It must be produced. It takes a month.Please be quick. Madame Curie is to putthe names of the donors in a book. Opposite the names will appear the record ofservice to humanity accomplished with thisradium. This book will be an honor roll,indeed. Let Chicago Alumnae get back ofthis fund to help humanity in a most vitalway and to honor one of the greatest ofour time.Southern California Club Holds Big MeetingLos Angeles, Calif.Feb. 27, 1921.A. G. Pierrot, Secy.The Alumni Council,The University of Chicago.Dear Pierrot:Mrs. Fred Speik will probably forwardto you a record of our annual banquet whichwas held last night, but I felt that I wantedto drop you a line and personally thankboth yourself and Harold Swift for thecooperation and assistance you have rendered in making our meeting a success.That it was a success, the fact that we hada turnout of about 80 people, over twiceas many as we have had at a Chicago dinner before, will testify.Professor Clark gave us a wonderfuladdress, full of interesting information relative to the University, and the work of theAlumni Council. Dr. Herbert Willett wasalso with us, and spoke with his usual won-AFFAIRS 209derful oratorical ability, on the relationshipwhich exists between the University andits Alumni. Dr. E. O. Jordan, of. the Bacteriological Dept., who is at the CaliforniaInstitute of Technology for the winter alsogave us a mighty interesting talk, and thenwe had others who spoke, such as Professor Thatcher, formerly of the Departmentof History of the University, but who isnow a rancher and country gentleman outnear Banning. We were also honored byhaving the wives of the guests of honorvith us, as well as many of the wives ofthe alumni.Fred Speik was elected President for thecoming year, and we could not have selected a better one, and his wife was electedVice-President. A wonderful combination,as Mrs. Speik's interest in the work duringour efforts to get ready for this meetinghas been superb. Miss Esther Godshaw,'09, my only class mate in L. A., was elected secretary, and Joe L. Lewinsohn Treasurer., '05, J. D. '07.Please convey to Harold my appreciationon behalf of the Club for his interest, alsoin sending to Dr. Willett the telegram ofgood wishes, which was given to the members during the course of the evening.With best wishes for the continued success of your work, and assuring you thatI stand ready at any time to help in thecause for Chicago, I remainSincerely yours,Dean M. Kennedy.A Commerce and AdministrationAssociationThe School of Commerce and Administration, founded largely on the idea thatbusiness is a distinct profession, is strivinglike our successful schools of law and medicine to set high standards and build up professional spirit in its field. Although theschool is yet very young, there are amongits graduates many men and women whohave made themselves good places in thebusiness world by doing good work, andwho can be expected, as they advance in ageand experience, to accomplish much more.These are people who should find it worthwhile to know each other better. At present they make up an indefinite group boundtogether loosely by associations at college,by personal friendships maintained here andthere, and by common interests in business.Inevitably they will develop some sort oforganization to foster closer friendships andto co-operate for their mutual benefit andfor the benefit of their school.When we all get old and fat and rich,and are tired of making money, a C and AAlumni Association, if we build one rightlynow, will be one of the good things in ourlives. Besides the old friendships it willhold for us, it will keep us in touch withyoung men and new things. By its help,perhaps, we shall not lose the broad "all- things-are-possible" outlook we used to haveat college upon the fields of business andeconomics.Such an association is bound to grow inmembership and in influence. The schoolis continually growing bigger and better.Together with an Alumni Association it isvery intimately ours. Its prestige and ourown are more or less linked together. Itsimpress is on some of the best years of ourlives. Our attitude toward the school, to agreat extent, determines the attitude ofothers toward it and toward ourselves aswell, because, after all, the school is butanother name for a good part of our owneducation.Keeping up active connection with theschool through an Alumni Association willhave its compensations. By helping theschool in its field work and its plant studies,in its efforts to get the best men in thevarious lines of business to address studentsand in obtaining positions for graduates,the alumni themselves may profit. Throughthis work they will, for instance, keep intouch with a source of high class employesor assistants, extend their acquaintanceamong leading business men, and perhaps,through student's plant study reports, occasionally even improve the efficiency of thework they may be doing or directing.The first evidence of an organization isthe movement on foot to form the AlumniAssociation of the School of Commerce andAdministration. The story of the preliminary organization meeting was told in lastmonth's number of the Alumni Magazine.A petition for recognition and representation will be presented to the Alumni Councilat its meeting in April. Later announcements will be s«nt to all C and A graduates.Andrew E. Wigeland, '17.Northern California Club MeetingStanford University, Cal.,March 5, 1921.My dear Mr. Pierrot:I am sure you will be pleased to knowthat the University of Chicago Club ofNorthern California were able to gettogether to meet Dr. and Mrs. HerbertWillett on their recent visit to the Coast.Owing to the very short notice it waspossible to gather together only about 30of us but we made up in enthusiasm forour lack in numbers. The meeting anddinner were held at the Commercial Clubin San Francisco at 8 p. m. February 19.After dinner President Russell Lowryintroduced Mr. Peter Clark MacFarlane ofSan Francisco, who proved a most entertaining raconteur of his acquaintance withDr. Willett during his earlier days in Chicago. The latter proved that he had notbeen entirely overcome by the encomiums(Continued on page 215)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE1The Letter BoxThe Other Side to "A versus B"Goucher College, Baltimore, Md.,March 28, 1921.Mr. Adolph G. Pierrot, Editor,The University of Chicago Magazine.Dear Sir:I saved the March number of the University Magazine — all except the "News ofthe Classes" and the "Marriages and Engagements," which I always read at once —as a spring vacation treat. That is why Ihave only just now read the letter on "Aversus B," a letter which, in spite of itscoming from a friend of mine, proved to beto me anything but a treat.Possibly the explanation is partly that, asan undergraduate, I was one of the "digs"who are contemptuously mentioned. Yetthe principal reason for my disagreementwith the writer's point of view lies deeper.It seems to me an injustice toward ourAlma Mater to say that "the aim of mostof us, in or out of college, is to be kindlyregarded by our associates." This may be,and should be, one aim. But the aim — !When I entered the University, a child ofseventeen, my plan was to spend a fewyears learning interesting things and incidentally fitting myself to earn a living "incase I should ever have to do so"; andthen to return home, with my A. B., andstay until — well, until a certain event whichhas never happened. But I had not beenat the University many weeks when itssoaring towers and its pervasive social idealsbegan to lift me out of my tiny self into anexhilarating world. And in this world theaim of being "kindly regarded by our associates" is a very subordinate aim indeed.After all, is not one of the great giftswhich the University offers to her childrenthe determination to achieve excellence?And is not the difference between the Astudent and the B student essentially this,that the former accepts, while the latter —at least temporarily — refuses that gift? Tobe sure intellectual thoroughness is not initself an adequate equipment for life's tasks;but it is undoubtedly an extremely important part of the equipment.The value of so-called "student activities"as a preparation for life is, as it seems to mc,grossly overrated. The power of leadership which participation in these activitiesis commonly supposed to develop oftenamounts, to nothing more than the abilityto see where the crowd is going and to getthere first. Real leadership is attained bya longer and more arduous route. It isfostered rather by intensive devotion to thecurriculum — provided, of course, that the curriculum is wisely determined — than byrunning for and holding numerous offices.The student who devotas much effort to thewinning of popularity seems to me hardlymore worthy of admiration than the averageward-politician.What is really important for a student isthat he should cherish worthy ideals; acquire genuine intellectual interests and habits of clear, careful, independent thinking;develop bodily vigor; grow sensitive tobeauty; learn what friendship is; habituallycall forth and respond to the finest qualities of the people whom he meets.I thank the University for encouragingher children to do these things. I thankthe University that her most loyal sons anddaughters are dissatisfied whenever theyfall short of excellence.Sincerelv yours,Alice F. Braunlich ('08; Ph. D.

Thebooklet, of 32 pages, contains eight illustrations, of the proposed design of theUniversity Chapel, of the Bond Chapel, andof other buildings to be erected, and a photogravure bird's-eye view of the Universityfor the frontispiece. Six of the illustrations have not been published before; thefrontispiece and the Bond Chapel illustrations were drawn especially for this booklet.._ -The little volume, intended to acquaintthe alumni with the progress and the prospects of the University, takes the alumniinto its confidence as to the plans and hopesof the University as they appear at present to those charged with its administration. President Judson, in his introductory message, states, "The little book whichis herewith presented is intended as a statement to the alumni of the general situationof the University at this time. It is hopedthat they will all find it of interest and thatmany will see marked differences betweenthe Quadrangles as they knew them andthe Quadrangles as they are today." Inconclusion, President Judson says:"The University extends cordial -greetings to all its alumni everywhere, and willalways rejoice in their success and havesympathy for their difficulties. It is the distinct view of all of us that the University exists not merely on the Midway, butwherever its alumni are doing the activework of the world; and we believe that thelessons of their student life will make anessential part of the power with which theyperform their duties of citizenship in anypart of the world."Because the booklet expresses a frankand hearty desire on the part of the administrative officers that the alumni be keptin touch with the developments and thegreat aims of Alma Mater, and because ofits most interesting presentation of the present University, we are certain that it willmeet with deep appreciation by all of ouralumni.On account of unavoidable delays in manufacture and distribution, it will take several weeks before the complete list has beencovered and all the books mailed out.Another delay will necessarily be involvedin the case of those alumni who have notinformed the Alumni Office of recentchanges of address. And there is, of course,especially as the work is all done by hand,the ever-present possibility of mistakescreeping in when the mailing assumes suchlarge proportions. At all events, the complete list should be covered, and mosterrors corrected, by about the end of April.If, therefore, you have not received yourcopy by May 1st, a request for the bookletsent in to the Office of the President willbring you one. All alumni should readthis splendid report on the University.A View Toward Ryerson Laboratory and Hutchison CourtGrass and Ivy Turning Green — for ReunionTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE«^M— im ■ 11 m i ■ m— mt^mMMii—ii m. m— m,— — tm— urn— ■■ .a»— i— »i— ■< — m^— iiTn»«i> -- n - - m mi uu m mi mi miViews of Other UniversitiesThe University of MinnesotaThe Principal Campus Street.

Who is he?"Colorado (with a flourish) : "A man who — "Editor (interrupting) :"That's enough. I know— it's Victor E. Keyes,J.D. '07. Thank you.I'm glad to present him."So here goes:Victor E. Keyes, J.D.'07, is now serving hissecond term as attorneygeneral of the State ofColorado. Many peoplecan succeed in gettingelected to a high officeonce, but to be reelected— aye, there's the test!And Victor Ernest Keyesnot only stood the test,but, judging by a greatvote, stood it well. Hisfull name, it seems, ispeculiarly symbolic: Victor is surely a victor;Ernest is intensely earnest, and, if we mayslightly jar pronunciation, Keyes certainlyholds the keys to success.Victor Ernest Keyes was born January16, 1879, at Oneonta, N. Y. His father wasa lawyer, so that by inheritance as well asby natural desire the son turned to the legalprofession. After attending local publicschools, the boy went west and entered theState Preparatory School at Boulder, Colo.After graduation in 1901, he was principalof schools at Fairplay, Colo., for two years,and then took up college work at the StateTeachers' College, Greeley, Colo., and atColorado College, Colorado Springs. Fromthe latter institution he obtained the Ph.B.and A.M. degrees.In 1903 he came to the University ofChicago and entered the Law School, enrolling among its earliest students. "Vic,"as many abbreviated him, was soon wellknown among his classmates. He was toolively and keen not to take part in activities of any sort, and so we just naturallyfind him entering the debating and orator-Victor E. Keyes, J.D. '07ical field. He was on the Debating Teamin a debate against Michigan.Shortly after receiving his J.D. in 1907he returned to Colorado and began thepractice of law at Greeley. Within a yearhe was appointed Deputy District Attorney ofWeld county, a positionwhich he occupied forsix years. During thesesix years Keyes successfully prosecuted literallyhundreds of cases andgained state-wide distinction for his highcharacter and abilities.At that time a GreeleyTimes - Republican editorial said of him: "Victor E. Keyes is a self-made man. In personalcharacter and moralhabits, in the record ofhis achievements, in thedemonstrated devotionto the best interests ofthe community, he hasbeen constantly and consistently, a good citizen,an able attorney, a vigilant prosecutor, and anadvocate always of thoseideals of life which findsuch active expressionin this district."His success as Attorney General of Coloradohas brought him into prominence throughout the West. During his first term, inaddition to large services in connection withthe coal shortage, industrial strikes, andother matters, rendered his State, Keyes,as head of the inheritance tax departmentcollected for his state, within two years,over a million and a quarter dollars. ADenver paper says: "This is by far thegreatest amount of money that has everbeen collected by this department, and theexpense of collection is considerably lessthan ever before." A Trinidad, Colo., papersays, "Victor Keyes is a man who has carried on the duties of his office with creditto himself and his state."In 1910 Mr. Keyes was married to MissDora Ladd, of Colorado. There are threechildren, Charles Melville, Ernest Victor,and Elizabeth Jane. Keyes has many finethings to say about Chicago, and he sumsit all up in saying: "It is a great university."ALUMNI 217Augustus R. Hatton, Ph.D. '07Do you want your city government fixedup? Is your State in an awful state? Hasyour section of the country some glaringmunicipal ills that need treatment? If so,just call on Doctor Hatton, '07, who is adoctor of philosophy by degree and a "doctor" of civic ills in practice. You will, ofcourse, have difficulty in getting his earlyattention, for he is a very, very busy man.Doctor Hatton has established, and is thesole member of anew profession — aprofession that hasbeen termed that of"civic engineer."And this is the wayof it:Augustus Raymond Hatton wasborn at Vevay, Ind.,Sept. 27, 1873. He.attended FranklinCollege, Indiana,received his 1898 arid remained at FranklinCollege for severalyears- as instructorin history and political science. In1901 he came to theUniversity of Chicago as a fellow inthe Department ofPolitical Science,became an assistantin that departmentin 1903, and then,after receiving hisPh.D. in 1907, wasassociate professorin the extension division of the University for a year. Heaccepted the chair inpolitical science atWestern Reserve University, Cleveland, being the first incumbent under the Marcus A.Hanna Foundation. While his work hastaken him from his classes frequently, hehas continued his connection as professorof political science at Western Reserve University since 1907.His interest in city charter government,in which he has become a specialist ofnational note, began while he was a studentat Chicago, at which time he was employedby a Chicago Charter Commission to drawup a digest of charters of about fifteenAmerican cities and six foremost foreignmunicipalities. Since that time AugustusHatton has been an authority on city charter government. An article on his work,which appeared a year ago in the ClevelandPlain Dealer, stated :"He gives his time to consulting withcities and states on changes in the struc-Augustus R. Hatton, Ph.D. '07tures of their governments. It is true thatmunicipal research bureaus occasionally,advise on changes in structure, but theirmain field is the collection of data onadministration. Dr. Hatton tells how torebuild. When he is retained by a city orstate that is about to bring forth on thisearth a new government, Dr. Hatton doesnot sell his talent as a mere constitutionalwriter. He would decline to draw up in acity charter or a state constitution an unworkable scheme asquickly as an architect would refuse todesign a foundationthat couldn't support the building."For some years,now, Dr. Hatton hasbeen consultant onmunicipal government. He has nopanacea; he studiescarefully the localand state conditionsand draws up his,reco m m e ndationsaccordingly.I n framing theirnew constitutions,Ohio, Illinois, Nebraska, and otherstates have enlistedhis services, whilesuch cities as Chicago, New Haven,Memphis, WichitaFalls, Cleveland andCincinnati have employed him. He hasdelivered speciallectures on municipal government atHarvard and otheruniversities.Mr. Hatton is amember of the coun-Municipal League,the Association ofcil of the Nationalis vice-president ofUrban Universities, and served as field secretary for the National Short Ballot association. He is a member of the Universityand City Clubs of Cleveland, of the CityClub of New York, and of Sigma AlphaEpsilon fraternity. He is the author of aDigest of City Charters, and of numerousarticles on municipal government.On November 11, 1903, Mr. Hatton wasmarried to Miss Nancy Mathews, of Franklin, Ind. "Gus," as many alumni mayremember him, returns to Chicago as histime permits, and to Chicago he creditsmuch of his unique success.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENews of the QuadranglesThe MachinationsJt ■» *• Jk -\r u PRESENTED BY THEOl JMAA. ■ BLACKFRIARSUniversity of Chicago -May 13 14 20 21The Winning Blackfriars PosterLargely as a result of student agitation,the faculty approved a plan last month forreducing the number of quarters of requiredgym from ten to six, with exemption during the last two years based on a healthexamination. The new system needs onlythe approval of the University Senate -before going into effect next fall. Eleven hundred students voted in a gym referendumconducted by The Daily Maroon, an overwhelming majority being in favor of a reduction in the work.Second Annual Senior VaudevilleThe second annual Senior Vaudeville isto be given April 15 in Mandel Hall.Walter Reckless, '21, is general chairmanof the vaudeville, which will include classacts and special stunts selected from the35 acts presented at the tryout. The showpromises to be exceptionally good.The Blackfriars ShowThe Blackfriars are making preperationsfor their seventeenth annual show, "TheMachinations of Max," by John E. Joseph, '20, which they will present May 13, 14, 20and 21. One hundred and thirty-five menreported for the first chorus rehearsal, andseventy-five men are expected to try outfor the cast. Hamilton Coleman, producerof five previous Friars shows, arrived inChicago from Florida, April 4, to takecharge of the production. George S. Lyman.'15, drew the winning Blackfriar poster inthe recent contest; the poster is reproducedon this page.Some Student ElectionsWilliam McWhorter was elected presidentof the Y. M. C. A. for 1921-22 at the annualelections, held April 1, with Carl Fales, vice-president, and Russell Pettit, secretary. Atthe Interfraternity Council elections for thecoming year, William Gubbins was chosenpresident; Earl Wooding, vice-president;Harry Hargreaves, recording secretary;Harry Bird, Jr., corresponding secretary,and Reginald Leggette, treasurer. MinaMorrison was chosen president of the University Y. W. C. A. at the elections onMarch 31; Helen Condron, vice-president;Beatrice Marks, secretary, and DorothySugden, treasurer.Student PublicationsA new University student publication,"Commerce and Administration," made itsfirst appearance on the campus April 11.The magazine started off most auspiciously,with a personal message from PresidentHarding and articles by Herbert Hoover,Roger W. Babson, and Charles Piez, formershipping board head. Frank Anderson, '22,is editor. The student fortnightly, "Chanticleer," has suspended publication pendinga reorganization. The April "Phoenix" isa "Blackfriars' Number."Other NotesGlenn Harding and Francis Zimmermanof the Undergraduate Council will attendthe Intercollegiate Conference on Undergraduate Government in Boston, April 15and 16. A Woodrow Wilson Club has beenformed on the campus to "perpetuate theideals and memory of the former president."Spring has come, and undergraduates areonce more parking on the lawn in "SleepyHollow." Meanwhile, The Daily Maroonurges students to "hit the walk." The newcry is "Give the grass a chance to grow —you've had yours."Harry Bird, Jr., '22.219AthleticsI 11 11 11 Bl 11 BTwo Conference ChampionshipsTwo conference championships were wonby the Maroons in the last month — CoachWhite's swimming squad taking the conference with a margin of nine points overtheir nearest competitors, and Coach Hof-fer's gymnasium team winning their usualtitle. In track, Chicago slipped badly andscored but two points, a third in the relaysaving a shutout.The Swimming TeamTo Edward Blinks, a sophomore swimmer, should go much of the credit for theswimming championship. Blinks won threeevents and placed second in a fourth, tyingone conference record and setting two newones. He also swam on the relay. In the40 he tied the record of Earle and Ries ofChicago, 19 3-5; in the 220, he clipped therecord of 2:31 2-5 made by Earle in 1918,by 1-5 of a second; in the 100, he went thedistance in 56 3-5 seconds, the old mark being 58 2-5, made by Ries last year. To windup the evening, when the meet was safelywon, he placed second in the 440, and hecould have won that had he tried. Thesuccess of Blinks means one more staradded to the long list turned out underCoach White, and there is no doubt that ifhe continues to swim, Blinks will set newrecords in the four events in which he competes.The relay team of Allison, Yegge, Blinksand Jenkins took third; Jenkins won fourthin the breaststroke; Gordon won the plunge,and Captain Yegge took second in thebackstroke. The water basketball team lostout in the final to Illinois, 6-2.Chicago got 31 points; Minnesota, 22, andNorthwestern tied for third with Illinois.In this connection, the remarks of TomRobinson, the Northwestern coach, aremore than interesting. Mr. Robinson claimsthe Western Intercollegiate honors anyway,because Northwestern won all its dualmeets (defeating Chicago by one point because of winning a reswim of the relay,after Robinson protested). Chicago lost adual meet to Northwestern, and only wonthe Conference, so Mr. Robinson figuresthat Chicago takes second place. At thisrate, the relations between Chicago andNorthwestern will scarcely be noted fortheir amicable tone.The Gymnastic TeamThe gym team went to Princeton for the Eastern Intercollegiate and after gettingthe highest rating of all the teams on theirfirst set of exercises, "blew" so badly inthe second set, that they got but one pointin the standing.Track EventsIt has been a long time since Mr. Stagg'strack teams failed to do better than thisyear's squad, but there are plenty of reasons. Very few seasoned runners have entered school in the last three years, so thata team must be developed from inexperienced men. The failure to hold the StaggInterscholastic may have something to dowith this — and as a reminder, that big eventwill be held May 28, with sections for bothhigh school and academy teams. For somereason, Bartky, the best runner in school,and on comparative times, easily the classof the Big Ten half milers, was not entered,and therefore could not run, either in the880 or relay. Capt. Harris was caught in ajam in his preliminary of the 440, and wentdown with three other men. Hall, in hisheat, was knocked across the track, theofficials failing to keep an eye on the turns.Krogh's inexperience hurt in the mile, andhe wore himself out fighting for position,finally falling on the final lap.The Baseball ProspectsFred Merrifield seems to be turning outa good baseball team, despite the fact thatonly a few veterans are back. Yardley is acapable catcher, Dixon is probably the bestfirst baseman in the league, Fryer is showing well at second; Fedor, a "C" man, is areliable shortstop, and Curtis at third isfair. "Fritz" Crisler will probably do mostof the pitching, with Palmer and Geertsmaas reserves. Captain Cole will play center>.eld, as his arm is well again, and Palmerwill probably play one field. The other garden is still vacant. The team fields well,but its hitting ability is unknown, becausegood competition has not yet been met.Some semi-pro games are booked for thismonth and the opening game will be playedwith Illinois at Urbana on the 23d.The baseball team from Waseda, Japan,comes to America this year, largely underthe auspices of Chicago, as a return engagement for the Chicago trip to Japan lastspring. There will be a big Waseda-Chicagogame on Stagg Field on Alumni Day, Saturday, June 11th.W. V. Morgenstern, '20.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Laboratory SchoolsBy Henry C. MorrisonThe laboratory schools are maintained bythe University of Chicago primarily forpedagogical, psychological, administrativeand other forms of educational experimentation and investigation. To that extentthey resemble other laboratories. In addition to being laboratories, however, theyare schools, maintainable as schools, andsubject to the same institutional obligations as all schools. The material uponwhich experimentation proceeds is the intellectual, physical and moral growth ofabout 850 children and young people, notto mention the 300 university students whoare doing their freshman Romance languagework under the administration of the HighSchool. For the welfare of all these pupilsand students, the University makes itselfresponsible and the faculty of the twoschools is keenly aware of the responsibility. No other laboratory works undersuch restrictions or within such limitations.An a'ccount of all the interesting and important investigations being carried onwould far transcend the space allotted tothis article. I shall accordingly attemptonly to picture the consistent and coherentmain campaign.It is apparent to most thoughtful studentsof education, as we find it in the UnitedStates, that it is doubtful, on the one hand,whether the program of education as it hasgrown up in this country can adequatelybe supported by that portion of our resources assignable to education; and morethan doubtful on the other hand whether theeducation given our youth is well calculatedto serve the recognized constitutional purpose of tax-supported free education, namelythe training of citizens of a free republic.And so the central purpose of our laboratory at present has come to be the studyof educational economy.This purpose reveals itself most obviouslyin the working out of a shortened curriculum, and the new curriculum is in process. At the time of writing, its extent coversnormally eleven years above kindergarten.That part of the problem in itself considered has been under way for several years and can fairly be said to be complete. The ordinary American elementaryand secondary school covers twelve years.We have now been for about a year completing the pre-secondary prograrh in sixyears, apparently with good success. Thetraditional school system uses eight years,although several hundred systems are nowon the six-year elementary basis. Above the sixth grade is left an allowance of five years for completion of thesecondary stage. In the eleventh year,however, several courses are offered whichparallel or are equivalent to college work.These are: (1) An English course whichparallels English 1 and English 40 in theUniversity; (2) a mathematics course whichis the full equivalent of most college freshman mathematics courses; (3) a Frenchcourse which parallels no particular collegecourse but which is probably of senior-college grade; (4) a history course whichparallels the first three majors of universityhistory.These courses are elective to the morecapable pupils, who thus complete their pre-collegiate education in eleven years and inaddition earn advance credit toward university degrees.The prospect is that many pupils whoentered from the Elementary School inFebruary and October, 1920, will be intellectually ready for college work at theend of the tenth year of school life. Threecourses will then be open to these pupils:(1) To go on to college at once if believed by their parents and instructors tobe socially, mentally and physically matureenough to do so; (2) to continue in the highschool and do junior-college work there; or(3) to do additional work at high-schoollevel, thus enriching their whole intellectual background.An important corollary of the foregoingdevelopment is the legislation adopted bythe University faculty last year at the instance of the Romance Department, by theterms of which all freshman college workin French and Spanish is done by the HighSchool. This applies, of course, to University students who enter without credit inRomance.But it is easy to revise the curriculum,without due regard to actual consequences.Such has sometimes been done with resultswhich leave much to be desired. Twomajor limitations at once appear.In the first place, pupils cannot be^driven," or at least they ought not to be"driven," into a theoretical and preconceivedmould. This limitation has been put inforce by setting up the ideal of no homework save that which is done voluntarilyby pupils under the stimulus of their ownintellectual interests; and by holding pupilsback with the minimum aspect of punitiveaction. Much has to be left to the wisdomand good sense of parents, but apparentlywe have been in the main supported there.LABORATORY SCHOOLS 221In the second place, a whole system ofteaching practice has been inaugurated withmastery as its objective. It would be veryeasy to establish a theoretical curriculumand pass adaptable children through itsstages with little or no reference to thoroughness of learning on their part, and, ofcourse, we cannot do that.The problem has thus become susceptible of rough statement somewhat as follows: Given children of differing individualattainments and capacities, with thoroughand actual learning of the elements of agiven curriculum as the objective, how longwill it take such children to complete sucha curriculum?A second major body of experimentationis the production of new material for studyand the recasting and better adaptation ofold material. In this general field, the following are at work, with work at variousstages.The University High SchoolMr. Bovee: A text in French from thetechnique standpoint. (In press.) The formulation of a series of reading tests inFrench.Mr. Breslich: Material for seventh-grademathematics.Mr. Hill: Social studies for seventh andeighth grades. (Ready for press.)Messrs. Pieper and Beauchamp: Elementary physical science. (Nearly ready forpress.)Mr. Scott: Elementary Latin from thetechnique standpoint. The collection of abody of extensive reading material forLatin.Miss Shepherd: The working out of material for specific instruction in Englishgrammar.The University Elementary SchoolMiss Brown: Studies in spelling and language at level of IV-V grades.Miss Evans: Application of handwork toneuro-muscular inco-ordination.Miss Harmon: Corrective treatment ofindividual cases in physical development.Mrs. Kern: Corrective procedure withmonotones.Miss Kibbe: The study of individualproblem cases with remedial treatment.Miss Kirkbride: Technique in primaryreading without drill in isolated elements.Miss Lucas: Extensive reading of children at primary level.Miss Bertha Parker: Reading materialfor children in science.Miss Edith Parker: A new text in geography.Miss Spink: Determination of the educational economy of teaching French be^low grade VII.Miss 'Vail: Adaptation of historical material for use in the elementary school.The above list is given to serve as a concise statement of this phase of experimentation and study so far as the activitiesof teachers in the schools are concerned.It does not include similar work being doneby officers of the College of Education,notably by Messrs. Gray, Lyman, Tryonand Miss Storm.Intimately bound up with the major linesof study being carried on in the laboratoryis the study of individual children now being organized and to some extent inaugurated. In brief, the project contemplatesthe recording of the physical, mental, andintellectual development of all children andinvestigation pi the whole tangled mass offactors which determine the most effectiveand economical working of the learningprocess. The undertaking presumes the cooperation of the laboratory of educationalpsychology under Professor Freeman, thenutritional laboratory under Associate Professor Blunt, and all teachers. The results of such a study extending over aperiod of years should throw a good dealof light into regions of school practice whichare now pretty dark. There are neededproper rooms and other material facilitiesand funds for a moderate research personnel.In the foregoing, I have attempted toset forth the principal activities of the laboratory schools which utilize the schoolsas wholes. Such a record is far from complete as a description of all the uses whichare made of the schools purely for laboratory purposes. The Department of Education utilizes children as subjects in studiesof the learning processes, which ProfessorJudd, Professor Freeman, Professor Grayor Dr. Buswell would be far more competent than I to describe. The schools arefurther utilized by all departments of theSchool of Education as teaching laboratories.There remains the service which is rendered in the field of observation and practice, the clinical use of the schools, to officers of the School of Education who aregiving courses in special and general methodand in the technique of instruction. Ideally.this function perhaps ought to be separatedfrom the laboratory function. The two aremore or less incompatible. The laboratorycannot be kept under full practice conditions and still remain in the best sense alaboratory. On the other hand, a clinicalschool ought essentially to be under thebest practice conditions. It has not inrecent years been the policy of the University to maintain a model school or tocompete with normal schools in the routinetraining of teachers. It is, however, thepurpose of the School of Education tobring discoveries in educational procedureto the stage of practical application andexemplification and for this purpose a separate practice institution would ultimatelyprove serviceable,THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE■J.D BB— BB— Bfl BB BB BB BB BB IB BB BB BB— BB— BB Bl— Bl— Bl^Bl— Bl— Bl— 11— — W ■■ ■■— IB^ll lA,[ School of Education Notes J!

Hunter, Professor of Psychology, the University of Kansas (The University of Chicago Press).This introductory book by ProfessorHunter gives a survey of psychology withthe emphasis upon the concrete experimental facts so far as they are available.Much attention is given to the descriptionof experimental methods and results. Psychological theory is- not neglected, but it isin general treated as of lesser importancefor the initial understanding of the science.The student and the general reader willderive much information from the carefullyselected illustrations. The chapters of PartI in particular contain figures which serveto drive home the facts there presented.So far as possible the illustrations dealwith typical apparatus used in the psychological laboratories.The book is written from the biologicalpoint of view, presenting facts both frombehavior and from the structural phase ofconsciousness. No attempt is made to present the material as a system of psychology,inasmuch as it is felt that such an effortmust distort the facts and read into theman artificial unity.The present account of General Phychol-ogy gives a bird's-eye view of the scienceand does not limit itself to the subject-matter of normal adult psychology as domost books for beginners. Such a methodof presentation has many advantages: (1)It gives an adequate account of the sci ence to that great majority of students andreaders who derive their only technicalacquaintance with pyschology from the introductory books. (2) It frees the studentfrom the erroneous impression that thefield termed "normal human adult psychology" is the whole or even the most vigorous part of the science. (3) It gives thestudent definite information upon which tobase a decision for future work in psychology.The University of Michigan, by WilfredShaw, (Harcourt, Brace and Howe, NewYork).Mr. Wilfred Shaw, Alumni Secretary ofMichigan and editor of the MichiganAlumnus, has rendered his institution a distinct service in writing his most interestingbook, The University of Michigan, justrecently published. While the volume follows a historical outline, it is not offered asa history of the University, but rather asa presentation of the more important eventsin the founding and growth of the institution, together with a picturing of the atmosphere and spirit that has made Michiganone of the great universities of America. ..In this aim Mr. Shaw has achieved markedsuccess.The book, of 400 pages, attractivelyprinted, is fittingly illustrated with 50 etchings and photographs of noted figures inthe life of the institution and of the University buildings. University of Chicagomen and women will find the chapters onNOTICES 225President Angell, Student Life, Fraternities and Student Activities and The University in War Times, of deep interest, andall alumni will find especially interestingthe chapters on Athletics and The Alumniof_ the University. The chapter on Athletics sets forth in a fair spirit much ofthe keen athletic rivalry between Michigan and Chicago; the chapter on TheAlumni is most instructive in the matterof building up alumni spirit and organiza tion and furthering effective, helpful alumniactivities, in which field Michigan has attained conspicuous success among MiddleWestern universities.Mr. Shaw, who has been Michigan'sAlumni Secretary for almost eighteenyears, is unusually well qualified for writing successfully such a volume, and hisbook fully deserves attention from all whoare interested in the growth and activitiesof our leading educational institutions.EAGLE "MIKADO" PENCIL No. 174Regular Length, 7 inchesFop Sale at your Dealer.

Goodspeed,Office of the President,The University of Chicago.My dear Edgar:Mr. Henry M. Adkinson of the old baseball days has written me suggesting that aspecial reunion be arranged in June for thefirst real championship team of the University — the 1896 baseball team. I hope thematter will be worked up for I can seemany possibilities of making this twenty-fifth anniversary both amusing and interesting. If the boys will co-operate, I shouldlike to see the old team actually play somesort of game against the 'Varsity. We canprobably arrange quietly to play a prettygood game.Stagg is, of course, the proper person toconsider this matter, but I take the libertyof suggesting it to you instead, thinkingthat you may more effectively present it toStagg, if you desire, than can I.With regards and best wishes,Yours very truly,F. D. Nichols ('97),280 Broadway,New York City.The President's Letter to Alumni Withthe BookletThe University of ChicagoChicago, IllinoisOffice of the PresidentTo the Alumni: March 21, 1921.The University is deeply interested in theexperiences and accomplishments of itsAlumni. It desires to be informed of theiractivities and urges every Alumnus to report from time to time matters of importance about himself to the University ofChicago Magazine, published by the AlumniCouncil, representing the combined Alumnigroups.The University also wishes to keep theAlumni in touch with its development andto inform them directly of its plans andprogress. With this purpose in view ithas prepared especially for the informationof the Alumni a booklet of thirty-two pages.sketching recent developments in the University's work, and plans for the near futurewith illustrations showing the Universityas it is today and the new buildings immediately in prospect. This is sent with thecompliments of the University.Very trulv yours,Harry Pratt Judson.Concerning Employment ServiceThe Editor, March 21. 1921.Alumni Magazine.Dear Sir:A prominent Alumnus suggested recentlyLETTER BOX 235that the Alumni Office might find a fieldfor service in securing positions for Students who were being graduated from theUniversity.The School of Commerce and Administration, the Bureau of Records, the University Employment Bureau, and probablyothers are doing some work in this direction. How far they have succeeded incovering the field I do not know.In these days of many applicants fornearly every position, the outgoing studentwill appreciate the service of an Employment Department in seeing that he isadvantageously placed. He is given theopportunity to work and it is up to him tomake good. It will not be difficult, on theDther hand, to get the cooperation of theAlumni in listing their vacancies with thisEmployment Department.Yours truly,Wm. H. Lyman, '14.A Fifty- Yard PenaltyThe University of ChicagoDepartment of Physical Cultureand AthleticsMarch 28, 1921.Mr. Adolph G. Pierrot,Alumni Secretary,University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:I presume you have already heard thatthere is a confusion regarding Adam M.Wyant and Dr. A. R. E. Wyant in thearticle concerning Adam Wyant in the University of Chicago Magazine for March.Dr. A. R. E. Wyant was captain of our football team in 1893. He played right tackleon the team of 1892, and center on the teamsof 1893 and 1894. A. M. Wyant played lefttackle in 1893 and got his "C" that season.Perhaps it will be a bit embarrassing tomake the correction, but I thought youought to know it.Sincerely,A. A. Stagg.(Editor's Note: We are glad to make the correction. The error, later discovered, is largely due tothe '95 Cap & Gown, which, except in a few instances, prints only last names of members of severalteams.) . A Tribute to Us(Editor's Note: The title and article is from theCornell Alumni News. Please pardon us if we alsobow.)An experienced advertising man from oneof the large agencies, in behalf of a client,rated the forty alumni magazines in theAlumni Magazines, Associated, for advertising make-up, subscription price, pagesize, position of reading matter among theadvertising, and similar features, of interestto their client.

HOUSTON GOUDISSPublisher, The Forecast, and Nutrition Expert of National ReputationTHE foremost foe of disease is cleanliness. It willdefeat even the most persistent and resourcefulgerms quicker than anything else.The average person has an idea that a steaming soap-and-water scrub in the tub makes for cleanliness. Thisis true as far as it goes, but it doesn't go far enough.Cleanliness that is only skin-deep protects only oneof the paths by which disease enters the body — and theone least used by enemies of health.. In the long coils of the intestines these deadly foesfind their favorite battle-field. There, in masses ofwaste matter, are bred noxious poisons upon which thesefoes can and do feast. There, unless this waste matteris promptly removed, these poisons penetrate the porouswalls of the intestines and get into the blood to playhavoc with the whole human house.In order to have health the body must be as cleanon the inside as on the outside.There is just one safe, convenient and harmless interiorcleanser — and its name is NUJOL.By lubricating the walls of the intestines so that the constantlyaccumulating waste matter cannot stay longenough in one place to cause trouble, NUJOLacts as a perfect human house cleaner.Being absolutely non-medical, it cannot produceany harmful effect on any part of the body withwhich it comes in contact.Not a particle of NUJOL is absorbed into thesystem in its cleansing passage thru the digestivechannels. It causes no pain or discomfort. Itis as easy to take as water, yet no amount ofwater could cleanse and keep clean the interiorof the hodv as NUJOL does.IIIII11IIII llilllllllllll Nuj olFor ConstipationSold by druggists in sealed bottles, bearing the Nu.iol trade-mark.Mail coupon for booklet to Nujol Laboratories, Standard Oil Co.
