M AY, 1921 No. 7Listen, my children, and you shall hear,a word or two on our Thirtieth Year.Reunion this year bids fair to sur-Home, pass any similar gathering ChicagoJames! has ever held, not excepting the1916 Quarter Centennial Celebration. The Thirtieth Anniversary, the Sixty-fifth Anniversary of the Old University, the"official game" with our baseball guestsfrom Waseda University, Japan, all combine to make the occasion a most unusualone. The high-spirited efforts of the undergraduates to entertain unsparingly, the wideinterest already manifested among thealumni, the strong endeavors of the ReunionCommittee, the Shanties, and the classes,the ready response of the fraternities, clubsand other organizations, and the full cooperation of the University authorities,point to a program of music, color, andgenuine fun, and a demonstration of- loyalty and enthusiasm that will thrill, allalumni fortunate enough to take part.On another page in this number appearsthe schedule. It is notable that, in themain, Reunion this year will be an outdoor affair. We've outgrown the presentUniversity facilities so far as holding indoor events are concerned. The Sing, theStreet Dance, the Parade and BaseballGame, the Picnic and the Circus, willenable all alumni to attend with the maximum of ease and comfort. As an additional guarantee, a special invitation willbe posted to the weather-man; surely hewill not be so rash as to spoil his own fun.However, in the event he stumbles, arrangements have been made to transfer mostfeatures indoors conveniently.Many alumni, we believe, do not fullyappreciate the efforts required to makesuch a Reunion, or any Reunion, for thatmatter, a success. Nothing, unfortunately,takes place by magic. General commit tees, special committees, sub-committees,etc., must be organized and set to realwork, and individuals must be enlistedright and left. , Details multiply rapidly.(Barnum and the Ringling Brothers wouldappreciate this). The Alumni Office, inaddition to other duties, mails out Reunionannouncements, over 20,000 in all, toalumni all over the world. And the wholeexpense — which is very large — is so adjusted that it places a very minimum ofcharge to the alumni who attend. It's abig undertaking, done by and for big-hearted Chicagoans. And all this, friends,is carried on in confidence and anticipation of — what? Simply, that you will attend and enjoy a happy hour. "Enclosedherein, please find" your reply: "Counton me, Chicago — I'll be there!"* * *Within the last two years the organization of University of Chicago clubs throughout the country has shownThe Annual unprecedented progress. ThisOpportunity is due, in general, to fourfactors: The great work ofthe Alumni Clubs Committee; the heartyco-operation of the University and the faculty members; the general, renewed desireshown by Chicagoans to get together andkeep together; and the invaluable help ofindividual alumni who undertook to organize clubs in their localities or to serve asclub officers. The results seem to indicatethat we have found the winning combination. (Congratulations!)The one time of the year, however, whenall the clubs should plan upon and holdtheir most successful meeting, is at thetime of the June Reunion. With one greatcentral Reunion on the Quadrangles andsome forty or fifty local Reunions takingplace simultaneously over the land andacross the seas, Alumni Day will take on a24.5I tit. umi'hKSU Y UF CHICAGO ' MACAZIl\tbigger, a more profound significance forall Chicagoans. Of course, if by chanceit. prove impossible for some particularclub to hold a meeting on the exact date,then a meeting as near that date as possible would answer well enough. At allevents, all of us can see the fine value ofChicago gatherings everywhere at one significant time, with telegraphic exchangeof greetings and felicitations. A worthystart toward this achievement was made in1920. Let 1921 — our Thirtieth Anniversary— be the honored year wherein this tradition becomes fully and firmly established.United we stand — get together!* * *Some of our classes, through the faultof no one in particular, have somehow losttheir organization in the shuffleDrop of time. All of them have manyYour members who at times vaguelyCrutches wonder about what has happened to their class structure.This loss of class contact is unfortunate.It is difficult to truly appraise the goodfeeling of belonging to a sure-enough class.Ask any member of some of our real classes — he'll tell you quickly enough thatone of his best college treasures is his classassociation; he wouldn't part with it foranything. Yet a large element of thisenthusiastic spirit is due solely to the factthat the class was fortunate in having officers and representatives who faithfullyassumed and carried out class responsibilities. The same happy results can andshould be gained by all classes. At thecoming June gathering, where every classwill certainly have at least a good attendance, we suggest that the unorganizedclasses hold informal meetings at once,shake hands and ignore the past, elect responsible representatives, notify the AlumniOffice, and from now on stay in step. Theywill find it well worth while. Now comesthe threat: Otherwise we shall mail them,special delivery, our new, hand-carved, tin-plated classification card, beautifully engraved in class-sick-al language:Breathes there a classmate with soul sodead,Who never to himself hath said,I want to meet Mary and Johnny and Ed?Sad news, neighbor, you're out of luck!An Airplane View of Cornell University CampusThe grounds of Cornell University extend between two gorges, shown as dark,broad bands across the center and top of the picture.

With the Baseball Team from Waseda University, Japan,as official guests on Saturday, June 11,Alumni Day will assume additional importance. Your Reunion Committee, the Undergraduate body, and the University aremaking efforts toward seeing that the Reunion will fully measure up to its significance. All that remains is for the Alumnieverywhere to enter heartily into the spiritof the occasion, to attend in as large numbers as possible, and thus to contribute toward the success of a great Chicago gathering. We sincerely and cordially ask for theco-operation of all of you.Yours for a great Chicago Day,George Raymond Schaeffer, '06,Chairman, Alumni Reunion Committee.% # * # *The above letter to Alumni from "Ray"Schaeffer, '06, Chairman of the 1921 ReunionCommittee, strikes the keynote of the coming gathering in June. It will be a great assembly — full of life, dash, and color. Lookover the program on the next page, mark your calendars now, and plan to be on hand.One of the difficulties of handling such agathering lies in the attempt to know in advance, to a reasonably close degree, the number who will attend. "Weather loyalty" —waiting until the last minute to see whetherit will rain or shine — sometimes causes needless confusion, and often needless expensewhere reasonable anticipatory expensesmust be incurred. For that reason the kindand helpful co-operation of all alumni isurged — send in your reservation slip (attached to the Reunion announcement), assoon before June 9 as possible. You aregoing to. attend this Reunion; indeed, canyou really afford to miss it?

Mr. R. A. Conkling was made chairman for next year's meeting and Sam Wellsand W. E. Wrather were chosen to assisthim._ Much Chicago spirit was displayed, andtwo rousing cheers were given. The guestsfelt that if we could procure some of thewords to our well known Chicago songs,Alma Mater, Wave the Flag, Grand OldStagg, and Chicago yells, the responseswould be better, and I wonder if any suchleaflets can be procured, and if so, where?Next year we hope to have a memberof the Geological Faculty present, and thusput ourselves in direct touch with thecampus.

VSessue Hayakawa[Although he has attained the highest possiblesuccess in the motion picture and dramatic world,there are few actors whose grind has been harderor way more beset with difficulties than that ofSessue Hayakawa, the Japanese film star.Sessue Hayakawa comes from one of the bestknown families of Tokio, his father being the Oriental representative of a number of prominent American concerns and a prosperous merchant. Occidental education was the aim of Hayakawa Seniorfor his son, and when Sessue was twelve years oldhe started for the United States to complete hiseducation. After finishing preparatory school, Hayakawa enrolled as a student at the University ofChicago and attended there for three years. Thelure of the dramatic world was strong within himand he succumbed to a flattering offer which tookhim to the Pacific Coast. As a member of theJapanese stock company of San Francisco, his talentattracted much attention and caused country-widecomment. Shortly afterwards, Thomas Ince, now awell-known cinema producer, offered Hayakawa acontract to appear before the camera. A yearlater Hayakawa was recognized as_ one of filmdom'sbest actors, his personality and histrionic dramaticability registering heavily on the screen.Producers then started to outbid one another forhis service. Lasky, then one of the few big producing organizations, _ signed Hayakawa for oneyear's work, after which the Japanese star startedhis own company, known as the Haworth Company.Since that time he has headed his own producingunit. Among his latest screen successes are "TheTong Man," "The Dragon Painter," "The FirstBorn," and "When Lights Are Low."]There is no other industry in the entireworld like the motion picture industry. Thisseemingly broad statement is not merely a personal opinion, but one made by numerous people of many professions who havein some way investigated the motion picture field.I have been asked by the editor to givea summary of the cinema as I have foundit. In order to make this article reallyworth while, I find it advantageous to dealwith the intimate or inside work of thephotoplay.In explaining the statement that no otherbusiness or profession is like the art of thesilver sheet, I must say that it is the thoroughly human element entering in thiswork which makes it decidedly differentfrom anything else. While corporationsdealing in millions of dollars manufacturingsome commodity, find that the human element in their business is but an infinitesimal part of their work, and the employeis merely a cog, not missed when removed,in the motion picture industry, or at leastthe production end of the business, everyperson connected in making the picturemust be counted upon as an important partof the work.Nearly all of us are admirers of the photoplay, finding enjoyment in visiting thepicture houses and plays regularly, yet thereare few outside the profession who understand the magnitude or realize the enormityof the task. The average production nowadays costs the producer in the neighborhood of one hundred thousand dollars unless of course, an extravaganza is produced,where tremendous sets and hundreds ofactors are used, then the cost is much more.In producing the ordinary picture, onemust realize that the first and all important feature is the selecting of a story. Infeaturing one actor, great care must betaken that he is suited to his character andthe action of the plot is in line with hisability and talent. Although we have oftenseen photoplays where the star or featuredplayer has made the story likeable, withanother actor playing the same role the picture would have been unsuccessful. Whena story has been selected and the continuity or plan of action has been written, thenext step is the selecting of the cast, designing and building of sets and securing locations for exterior scenes.The foregoing few words sound simpleand the reader could imagine it being donewithin a few days. But let us take theselection of the cast as an example of thedetail work and thoroughness which is necessary in this one thing. The characters-t k,' j. i j. a. ± j. i j.rj. \^/ j. ±. \jf j.i j. j. \^ j. \_/ j. lx^oabove all else must be chosen with greatcare and foresight. The director and hisassociates must visualize the action of theactor or actress they have chosen for a particular role and have a concrete idea ofjust what sort of an impression he or shewill make upon the screen. A miscastcharacter has ruined many otherwise successful stories and dissatisfied thousands oftheatregoers. Upon the selection of characters to portray a role in the story, thereis a tremendous task in building and designing the sets for the picture. This istaken care of by the art director, whoseduty it is to see that every set is correctas regards period, furnishings and color.The human element enters in the production as soon as the picture starts. It isentirely up to the individuals, actors, directors, "prop" men and even stage handsthat once the filming begins the greatestof care must be taken not only in the acting, filming and staging of the picture, butthat perfect harmony must prevail in orderto accomplish results.Take for instance a company where eightor nine actors are engaged each at a salaryof two or three hundred dollars a week.Should, one of these actors be taken sickafter the first week of production, the entirefilming would be delayed until he or shehad recovered. And often it has been necessary when their illness has had a bad effecton their features, to wait until they haverecuperated entirely. This would cost theproducer five or six thousand dollars inwasted time, since the scene in which thecharacter would appear would be delayedand ofttimes no scenes could be shot without their presence in them. The humanelement is also encountered even in theslightest detail of the actor's disposition,which registers just as plainly as a motionin the camera's eye. Satisfactory actingcannot be obtained from a dissatisfied actor.Even the laborers engaged in dressing thesets must be reckoned with, since an erroron their part can cost the producers a tremendous sum.There are thousands of such instanceswhere unless the human element is takeninto consideration and the importance ofthe individual realized, an entire productioncan be spoiled and a producer may losethousands of dollars on his investment. The life of the ordinary picture companyis but one picture. By this I mean, thatwhen a picture is started the most important group of the organization, the cast,work until their parts have been finishedand they are through. With the picturefinished they leave, ofttimes never to appearin support of the same actor and with thesame cast again. In many instances eventhe working staff is changed to a greatextent, so that it is not a misstatement insaying the life of a motion picture company is with one picture, since for the filming of every picture an entirely new organization is built up for the time being.To take up the history of the motion picture industry in general and to deal fairlywith its magnitude, would take considerable space, but as one who has been inthe industry for the past nine years I findit necessary to say a few words regardingthe enormous strides made in this new artwhich now ranks third in the world's industries. Just a few years ago we can allremember the crudeness of the sets, thelack of real actors and many other glaringfaults which made the average personsnicker and prophesy a quick death for thephotoplay game. We thought at first filmswere a fad and with their passing wouldsoon be forgotten. But to the Americanproducer the world owes a great debt, fordespite the discouragements given them andthe obstacles thrown in their way, theybattle-axed their way through prejudiceand hardships and as pioneers, strive on toa game finish. But their finish was merelythe beginning of a greater scope for thephotoplay. Their efforts, sometimes in vain,but all in good faith, brought to light thepossibilities this new art of lights and shadows offered. It was only after years ofstruggle where few lent a kindly hand ofassistance, that the American producerproved the possibilities of his enterprise.The last few years have seen a tremendous development in the cinema world. Theworld's best actors, authors, directors andartists entered the field and a new erastarted, which gained the attention of theentire world. Still the motion pictureworld is in its infancy— it is but a babein arms nursed by the encouragement andplaudits of the public.of Other Universitiesi+• Cornell UniversityThree Old Cornell Buildings on West Sideof QuadranglesCornell University, situated in the heartof the Finger Lakes region of western NewYork, occupies a plateau on one of theridges above the town of Ithaca that isfondly called "The Hill" to distinguish itfrom the other hills of the region. Thecampus plateau lies between two deepgorges, about half a mile apart, thestreams of which fall about four hundredfeet in the half mile between the edge of the campus and Cayuga Lake. The campushas an area of approximately two and ahalf square miles. The university buildings are arranged in a rough triangularform, the base of which, about half a milebroad, includes most of the older buildingsand stands on the brow of a hill commanding a view of the valley and the lake.The earlier buildings were of native stonein rather large blocks. Later architectschose various other materials, but withinthe past decade the finest new buildingshave been constructed of native stone,quarried on the premises, and laid in narrow courses. Of these the New York StateDrill Hall is a fine example. It coversone of the largest areas ever put under asingle roof without intermediate supports,having a main floor of about 84,000 squarefeet, being 216 by 362 feet. The beginningof a dormitory system for men, now housing 420 students in five units, is also constructed of native stone in narrow courses.Ground is now being cleared for a chemistry building which is to cost $1,500,000.Cornell is unique in being a privatelyendowed institution with two of its collegessupported entirely by the State of" NewYork, and with some support from the Federal Government. Its total expenditures for1919-20 were in excess of four millions, ofwhich approximately one and one thirdmillions came from the State; one-third of amillion from the Government; a millionfrom tuition and other student fees (tuitionCornell Campus, Lake Cayuga in the DistanceOn extreme left, the Library; on brow of the hill overlooking the lake, three oldbuildings; on right-rear, with dome, Sibley College of Engineering; in foreground,Chapel, Law School, and Medical in the two State Colleges to residents of the State); and the remaining million and a third came from various sources,principally the income from the endowmentof eighteen million dollars.In a practical way Corne'l owes verymuch to the hills arid lakes. The ratherremarkable record of its oarsmen and longdistance runners is in part traceable tothe stamina developed by the climbs up thehills, and to the lake with its long straightstretches of tideless or "dead" water. Thesehave been made the most of by Jack Moak-ley, the track coach, and the late CharlesE. Courtney, the "Old Man" of Cornelloarsmen for the last forty years.The students pursue many interestingactivities. Each college has its own technical publication, in addition to which gen-Prudence Risley Hall — Women's Dormitoryeral organizations publish a daily, a fortnightly pictorial, a comic, and an annual.Clubs, honorary societies, musical, dramatic,and debating organizations, and a mostelaborate fraternity and sorority system ofabout seventy nationals and ten locals, withproperty worth two or three million dollars— all conspire to fill in the spare time of thestudent. Every branch of athletics hasvarsity, class, college, fraternity, and scrubteams, giving more or less adequate exercise to over half the students. Cornell haswon at least one undisputed championshipin track, rowing, cross country, or wres-tl'ng — sports in which intercollegiates areheld in the East — every year except one ofthe present century, and she has wonnearly three-quarters of the total numberof these championships in these two decades.Cornell is distinguished for many featuresbesides engineering, agriculture, cross coun- Crew Race Finish, Cayuga Laketry teams, and oarsmen. Many of the highest positions in the State are held by its lawyers. The cancer research of its MedicaCollege, and incidentally its stock of radium, are worthy of note. The psychologlaboratory is second to none in the workIts architects win more than one school'share of intercollegiate prizes. On its campus were produced the half-tone processand the first arc-light to be used practicallyAs a military institution it has been rankeias distinguished ever since the War Department began to rate colleges that teach military science, so that it was no surprisewhen a Cornell detachment had the goo<fortune to be first to carry the Stars amStripes into action in France in 1917.R.

Forcertainly our Chicagomen have no monopolyon prominence in thework of the world. Indeed, a number of ouralumnae have achievedunique and striking success in various fields, andas this series progresseswe shall present some ofour prominent alumnaefrom time to time. Weare pleased to start thisfeature of the series withthe biography of HelenThompson Woolley, '97,Ph.D. '01.Mrs. Helen ThompsonWoolley was born inChicago, November 6,1874, the daughter of ashoe manufacturer. Aftercompleting her preparatory education at theEnglewood High Schoolshe entered the University of Chicago in 1893,specializing in psychology and sociology. She took part in somecollege activities, and became a member ofPhi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board.

In the following year she wasEuropean Fellow under the Association ofCollegiate Alumnae. In' 1901 she receivedthe degree of Ph.D. from Chicago, and thenfor four years was Instructor and later Professor of Psychology at Mount HolyokeCollege, Massachusetts.In the next year, 1905-1906, she served asPsychologist to the Bureau of Education atManila, Philippine Islands.

The work ofthe Bureau embracesSchool Attendance,School Census, ChildLabor and Placement, aPsychological Clinic, Educational Measurements,Scholarships, Supervisionof the Feeble-minded inIndustry, and an Adjustment Office. Mrs. Wool-ley has proved especiallyfitted and able for thissignificant work in relation to public school children, and much of thesuccess and advancement of the Bureau,which has attracted widest attention, is dueto her.During the war Mrs. Woolley served asa member of the State Executive Committee of the Ohio Council of National Defense, as a member of the Child WelfareCommittee of Cincinnati, and as Chairmanof the Cincinnati Chapter of the JuniorRed Cross.

For thefirst time in our athletics history a teamrepresenting the Rock Mountain region willplay Chicago, and the University of Colorado is in every way a worthy representative of that region. The Chicago-Coloradogame has so stirredup interest at Boulder, Colorado, thatalready plans havebeen made for aspecial train — notone or two cars, buta real train — tobring the team, therooters, and Colorado alumni and citizens to Stagg Field.This will be perhapsthe longest specialtrain football trip insporting annals. TheColorado AlumniClub at Chicago isalso making elaborate plans for thereception and entertainment of the visitors from theirAlma Mater. All ofwhich leads quitenaturally, you willagree, to a briefbiography of GeorgeNorlin, Ph.D. '00,who is President ofthe University ofColorado.George Norlin wasborn in a log cabinnear Concordia.Kansas, April 1,1871. Possibly the date is significant — at allevents he certainly fooled the Concordians;he developed into a sure-enough "log cabinPresident." In the public schools of Concordia he received his early education; heobtained his preparation for collegiate workat Fish Creek, Wis., where his parentsmoved when he was a boy. He then wentwest again and, in 1893, received his A. Hastings College, Nebraska. After threeyears as an instructor at Hastings Collegehe came to the University of Chicago in1896 for graduate work in Greek. In 1899the senior fellowship in Greek was awardedhim; in August, 1900, he received the degreeof Ph.D., cum laude. In 1902 Dr, Norlinattended the Sorbonne in Paris, and latertraveled .extensively in Greece, Italy,Switzerland and France. In Switzerland hebecame acquainted with Miss Minnie CovertDutcher of Cleveland, O., who became hiswife on June 21, 1904. George Norlin, Ph.D., '00Since 1899 he has been connected withthe University of Colorado at Boulder, firstas Professor of Greek, then as director ofthe Summer Session, later, in 1914-15, asDean of the Graduate School, and then, in1917-18, as Acting President of the University. On February 24, 1919, he wasunanimously elected to the presidency ofthe institution, which is generally recognizedas the leading educational institution in thatsection of the country. This distinctionwas conferred uponhim in recognition ofhis sterling character and high executive ability as displayed during histerm as Acting President when the S. A.T. C. was in force atColorado. In addition to his able workat the Universityduring the war, Dr.Norlin rendered exceptional service ingovernment educational work throughout the state, ofwhich work he wasin charge.We hear that, asof yore, he is stillthe hail fellow, welland happily met.President Norlin isa member of PhiBeta Kappa and ofPhi Gamma Deltafraternity. He is amember of theClassical Associationof the Middle West,and has contributednumerous articles,both scientific and popular, to various magazines and journals. Recently he has beencompleting an important translation of atwo-volume edition of Isocrates. Dr. Nor-l;n is a "strong" Chicago alumnus; amongthe leading members of his faculty are anumber of Chicago graduates. We hopethey will all come on that special train whenColorado and Chicago join hands and exchange punts.At the time of his election as President,the Colorado Alumnus said: "Regents,faculty, students, alumni and all those connected with the University are entirelypleased with the selection of Dr. Norlin aspresident. A successful and progressiveadministration is assured with the University in his hands."THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAtmosphere and ArtIn the Annual Blackfriars ShowDonald Richardson, '24, as Leona, and JerryNeff, '22, as Dick CollinsThe Blackfriars take a flyer into Bohemia and the world of art in their seventeenth annual musical production, "TheMachinations of Max," which they are presenting in Mandel Hall, May 13, 14, 20 and21, with matinees May 14 and 21. The setting for the show is the Art colony at 57thstreet and Stony Island avenue and thehero is a struggling "artistic" photographerwho has all sorts of "atmosphere.""The Machinations of Max" is the workof John E. Joseph, '20, who will be remembered as the moving spirit and managingeditor of The Daily Maroon last year.While on the campus he was a Universitymarshall, a member of the Dramatic Cluband Blackfriars, and class honorary societies. He is a member of Kappa Sigma,and since receiving his degree has been engaged in publicity work.Joseph and Paul Randall, '21, wrote thelyrics for the show, and music was suppliedby Wilbur Hatch, '22; Arthur Ranstead,'21; James C. Hemphill, ex-'17; DudleyLyndon, '20; Grant Mears, '20, and LouisTilden, ex-'21. A new feature of the show is that the scenery, the studio interior, hasbeen designed by an undergraduate. Dudley F. Jessup, '22, submitted the best suggestion for a setting in a scenery contest.Jerome Neff, '22, will play the leadingrole in "The Machinations of Max," that ofDick Collins, ex-Maroon athlete and campus idol. Neff was a member of the 1919and 1920 football teams and led the Inter-class Hop in his Freshman year.

Mr.Coleman took complete charge of the production early in April, having traveled allthe way from Florida for that purpose. Hehas coached the cast and chorus in acting,singing and dancing, and the success of theshow is largely due to his efficient direction.The costumes for the show are elaborateand colorful and planned to synchronizewith the vivid stage settings. Some of theClarence Brown, Law '23, as ProfessorWillisbig hits of the show- are "Indian Sea,"""Crocodile Crawl," "You've Gotta Shock'Em to Get By," and "Jazzbo Prof." Thechorus numbers include artists, jazzboprofs, campus queens, chorus girls, andother groups.Katherine Clark, '21, is the only womanofficially connected with the show.

Probably the most significant to the world atlarge was the series of lectures deliveredby Professor Albert Einstein, of the University of Berlin, noted scientist and expounder of the theory of relativity. Professor Einstein spoke in Mandel Hall, May 3, 4and 5, before audiences of students and faculty members from Northwestern, Illinois,Armour Tech, and Lewis Institute, as wellas the University. His lectures were delivered in German. Professor Einstein referred to Professor Michelson as one of theworld's foremost scientists.Louis Untermeyer, the poet, was anotherspeaker here, lecturing under the WilliamVaughn Moody foundation April 14, on thenew era in poetry.The Interclass HopIn campus affairs, the selection of classleaders for the annual Interclass Hop bythe Undergraduate Council is the most important event of the month. Herbert Crisler and Jean Burtis will be the Senior leaders, Robert Collins and Marie Niergarth theJunior, Wallace Lannigan and Ruth Bowrathe Sophomore, and Joseph Duggan andLillian Howard the Freshman leaders. TheHop will be given in Barlett Gymnasiumon June 3, with the two Senior leaders incharge.A Famine Relief DriveA Famine Relief drive May 2-6, in chargeof Glenn Harding, was held to raise fundsfor the Near East and Chinese sufferers. Anumber of features of the drive aided inswelling the total to well into the thousandsof dollars. One of these was a woodenobelisk set up in the C bench, on whichstudents pasted relief stamps, which werefor sale by campus women. Sing will be held on June 10, and followingthe Sing, a street dance. Alumni Day willbe featured by a parade, welcome for theJapanese team, and a picnic following thegame.The InterscholasticPlans are also well under way for theStagg Interscholastic meet, which will beheld May 28 after a lapse of four years.Charles Redmon, '22, is general chairman.The meet is expected to draw the best highschool athletes from all over the country.They will be given a dinner, entertainmentand automobile ride through the city, andwill be housed in the various fraternityhouses.The annual educational conference ofhigh schools and academies co-operatingwith the University was held May 5 and 6,with educators from all over the countryparticipating. University students acted asguides for the visitors.Alumni Day PlansExtensive plans are being made forAlumni Day and for welcoming the WasedaUniversity (Japan) baseball team, which isnow in this country playing a series of exhibition games. Francis Zimmerman, '22,has been appointed general chairman of anAll-University Circus, to be held on AlumniDay, June 11, in connection with the Wa-seda-Chicago game. The Interfraternity Three One-Act PlaysA set of three one-act plays was presented April 22 in Mandel Hall for thebenefit of the University Settlement. Bartlett Cormack, '21, Charles Breasted, '20,and Professor Boynton, of the English department, took active parts. The playswere directed by Hamilton Coleman of theBlackfriars.Other ItemsThe May issue of the "Phoenix," studenthumorous monthly, is a "Spring FeverNumber." May 2-6 was "Senior JobWeek," and the LTniversity EmploymentBureau made every effort to assist graduating students to secure permanent employment. Howard Beale, '21, won the annualSenior moustache race with a valiantgrowth. University women are much agitated over what the}' term the unfair distribution of campus plums. A "point system"is being advocated which would closelylimit the part any one student could takein activities. There is also opposition to aplan for building dormitories on what isnow Ida Noyes field — the women wanttheir athletics too. Fraternity men are engaged in the annual hectic Interfraternitybaseball series. The 1921 Cap and Gownwill soon be out. And then nothing will beleft but examinations.Harry Bird, Jr., '22.THE INTERSCHOLASTIC 261Because the Interscholastic Commissionneeds space to make a plea for alumni support, the recital of Maroon accomplishmentswill be brief. Probably, when you read therecord, you will see that the track teamneeds help, and so be more willing to bringthe Interscholastic to the attention of highschool athletes.The baseball team is already hopelesslyout of the fight, but before the season endsthe nine should be a fairly formidable outfit. The greenness has hurt, but the teamis improving, and enough men will be leftto promise a strong team for 1922. In theopener at Illinois, the team was rattled, andits misplays gave the game to the Illini,8-2. In the next game, Northwestern atChicago, the Maroons played good ball, andwon 5-0. The Wisconsin game was lost,7-1, after Crisler's sore arm prevented hispitching beyond the third inning. CoachMerrifield has no other hurler left, and withCrisler out for the next few games, at least,it looks as if Chicago were due for defeats.The fielding in the three games played hasbeen more or less erratic, especially againstWisconsin, and the hitting has been verylight.The Drake and Penn relays have beenoccupying the track team and DirectorStagg. At Drake the mile team, composedof Captain Harris, Bartky, Brickman, andHall, won third, and the same men, running in the 880 relay, also took third. Thefour-mile team, of Krogh, Davis, Bowers,and Dooley, finished in the ruck, and wasnot taken to Penn. At the eastern games,the mile team ran fifth, managing to finishahead of the French team.The tennis team started the season bywinning all six matches from Northwesternin a dual meet. Vories and Segal, thedoubles champions, are already in goodform, and Hazard, Golde, Gates, and Frankenstein are promising, so that the Maroonsshould be contenders in the conference.Edward Blinks, who won the three, firstsand one second for Chicago in the conference swim, was elected captain of the teamfor next year, and C. E. Merriam was electedcaptain of the water basketball team. Themembers of the swimming team and CoachWhite were awarded championship medalsby the Athletics Department.W. V. Morgenstern, '20.The Interscholastic MeetCoach Stagg's greatest High School Interscholastic takes place on May 28 on Stagg Fred Merrifield, '98, D. B.

More than 5,000 invitations havebeen sent out to high schools and acade--mies all over the country and indicationspoint to the largest meet that has ever beenheld. A unique feature of the tournamentthis year is the holding of separate championships for high schools and academies,with a full set of fifteen events for eachdivision.Chicago's need for good athletes, especially track men, is great and the Interscholastic offers a means of securing someof the best prep athletes in the country.In the past many of the world's greateststars first came to light in Stagg's inter-scholastics, their progress from these competitions to college honors being rapid.Among those who gained fame are listedthe names of Arlie Mucks of Wisconsin,world's record holder in the discus; CarlJohnson of Michigan, famous all-aroundtrack athlete; Ira N.

Duringthe first term Miss Storm will give a coursein the teaching of community life, history,and civics, adapted to the needs of teachersof the first three grades. Mr. Tryon andMr. Hill will both be in residence duringthe entire summer, the latter occupyinghimself with courses in the teaching of history in the junior high school and the teaching of community life and the new civicsin junior and senior high schools. Mr.Tryon will give his customary course in theteaching of history in junior and senior highschools.On March 18 Ginn and Company published Mr. Tryon's book entitled The Teaching of History in Junior and Senior HighSchools. It has been adopted by one StateReading Circle Board and is also in use as atext in a number of classes in the teachingof history.The manuscript of Mr. Hill's book, Community Life and Civic Problems, is in thehands of Ginn and Company. The bookis intended as a text in the upper elementary and the junior high-school grades. Ithas already been successfully tried out inmimeographed form in a number of schools.During the past two years Mr. Barnardhas been experimenting in the UniversityHigh School with a course in history whichhe calls "A Survey of Civilization." Chronologically the course begins with primitiveman and extends to 1815. The School Review will publish an article by Mr. Barnardrelative to this course.A significant report with which the department has been much concerned for thepast three years has recently been published. Reference here is to the report of acommittee of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association on "Standardizing Library Work and Library Equipment forHistory in Secondary Schools." Mr. Hilland Mr. Tryon were both members of thiscommittee, Mr. Hill acting in the capacityof chairman. Those interested in the report in a brief form may find it in theSchool Review, February, 1921. The full report will appear in the 1920 Proceedings ofthe Mississippi Valley Historical Association.The Historical Outlook will also publish thereport in the early fall.Department of EnglishThe Department of English is fortunatein securing the services of Miss A. LauraMcGregor for both terms of the SummerQuarter. Miss McGregor, who is the vocational counsellor and the supervisor of English in the Washington Junior HighSchool of Rochester, New York, has forseveral years been giving courses for teachers in the summer session at WesternReserve University, Cleveland. Her book,Supervised Study in English, has just beenissued by the MacMillan Company.Miss McGregor will give courses forteachers of the middle grades in variousaspects of English; Professor R. L. Lymanwill give courses for instructors in theupper grades and junior high school; Professor C. S. Pendleton will give the coursesfor senior high-school teachers, of English;work for the elementary grades will be provided by the Kindergarten-Primary Department.This department has been active duringthe past year in attempting to carry outthe principle of teaching English in allclasses. In the elementary school this hastaken the form of minimal essentials inlanguage; for the junior and senior highschools, the undertaking has the form ofminimal essentials and the preparation of athoroughly revised "Manual of Usage." Inthe college the enterprise is in the form of"Standards of Usage in English," a copy ofwhich is placed in the hands of every student._ Instructors in all departments arerequiring good English in oral and writtenwork. For each of the branches of worksuitable follow-up devices are in operation.This is one of the minor features of thecampaign throughout the School of Education for improvement of instruction.Department of MathematicsThe High School department of mathematics is working on three important piecesof investigation.The first is the development of a courseof study for the first and second yearsof the junior high school. This work hasbeen in progress for two years, and it willbe completed by Mr. Breslich and the department teachers by the close of the schoolyear.The second is an analytical study of thesubject-matter now being taught in the firstand second years of the junior high school,carried out by the teachers of the department, the results being compiled by Mr.Breslich. This study is expected to yieldvaluable information regarding errors, difficulties, methods of teaching, and units ofinstruction.The third is a study of the basic factorsin the classification of pupils and is beingmade by Dr. F. S. Breed of the College andMr, Breslich of the High School. ThisTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEstudy will yield information as to the reliability of intelligence tests in the measurement of intelligence and in the predictionof scholarship; on the relation betweenintelligence, industry, and other factors involved in scholarship; on the reliability ofteachers' estimates, and other elements ofsignificance in the organization of instruction and teaching.Mr. Myers of the College is taking thefinal steps in putting through the press asupplementary text of his own on Elementary Algebraic Geometry, a text by Hamiltonand Buchanan on a phase of mixed mathematics for high schools, and a set of 130standardized drill cards for algebra byBriggs, of St. Paul Academy. All are toappear in July.Mr. Butler, a graduate student, is working on a piece of research on "The Role ofMemory in Algebra." His special concernis with the extent and kind of memorycalled for in the study, and his conclusionswill be of import to high-school and normal-school teachers of algebra particularly.Department of Natural ScienceThe special methods courses offered bythe Department of Natural Science duringthe Summer Quarter will include: Organization of Elementary Science for the Grades,Teaching of General Science, Teaching ofPhysiology and Hygiene, Botany and Zoology in Secondary Schools, and Teachingof High-School Chemistry.These courses attempt to acquaint thepupil with the problems which he will encounter in the teaching of these subjects,and to aid him in their solution. In general,they take up briefly a survey of the historyof the teaching of the subject to give thestudent some prospective. There is discussion of the aims of science teaching andthe specific aims of each particular subject.A comparison is made of some of the bestof the courses now in use and textbooks arereviewed in order to familiarize the studentwith the best principles of organization ofthe subject-matter. Questions of laboratory work, use of the notebook, class procedure, are discussed. Sources of supplyare given for illustrative materials and apparatus, and in the course of botany and zoology considerable attention is given todemonstration and practice in handlingcameras, making lantern slides, and the useof the projection apparatus.The University High SchoolAs a laboratory the University HighSchool aims to create, test, and refine teaching materials, to study educational processesscientifically, and to produce professionalliterature of value to schools everywhere.In the interest of better laboratory contacts with the rest of the University, theHigh School has this year been put upon atime schedule synchronized with that of the other divisions. As a result there is amuch greater freedom of movement amongthe several groups using the school — pupils,teachers, students of education, and professors.Some of the interesting studies which areunder way in the various departments maybe outlined briefly as follows:English. The course in drama has beenworked out with laboratory methods with atwofold objective: First, the developmentof pupil appreciation and taste in drama,through study of type plays, extensive collateral reading, investigation of technicalstructure, and acting; second, to give playto pupil self-expression through acting,stagecraft, and play-writing.Latin. The Latin Department has beenattempting to work out a reorganization ofthe first two years of the Latin course forhigh schools with two specific purposes inmind: First, to select reading materialbetter adapted to boys and girls than thetraditional course and, second, to replacedrill on grammatical classifications and infrequently used forms by more reading andby a more careful study of vocabulary.Mathematics. The Department of Mathematics has been working on the following:(1) An analytical study of the subject-matter in relation to the results in theseventh, eighth, and ninth grades, with thehope of securing valuable information regarding difficulties, errors, and technique ofteaching. (2) A scientific study of the basisfor class organization, involving questionsas to reliability of intelligence tests, teachers' estimates, factors involved in scholarship, and improvement of examination procedure.Science. The Science Department is interesting itself in determining, by exhaustivestudy of existing courses in secondary science, minimal essentials for each course.Much time has been given to the preparation of supplementary experiments and tothe assembling of illustrative and readingmaterials for pupils who show special abilityin science work. Both projects look forward to the preparation of a series of syllabi,laboratory directions, and reading materials.Art. The class in design has undertakentwo special projects. One is a bookplate tobe used in the textbooks lent by the school.The second is the decoration of two largepanels for the library, using two short inscriptions within a symbolic border.Shop and Drawing. This department isseeking to adjust courses in shop and drawing to the needs of the junior high-schoolclasses. Two new courses are in process ofdevelopment, both dealing with generaltechnical subject-matter, one in metal-working, the other in woodworking.

Miss Baberwas a member of the faculty of the ChicagoInstitute which was presided over by Colonel Francis W. Parker when it became apart of the University of Chicago in 1901.Miss Baber has for years, been a carefulstudent of Colonel Parker's methods, andshe has been able, as a result, to make largecontributions to the teaching of geographyin public schools during the period of herservice in the School of Education. Herwide travels during the last twenty yearsand her continued study of the geographyof various regions of the world have madeher unusually familiar in a concrete andspecific way with geographical facts notordinarily possessed by teachers of geography. Although Miss Baber retired from herteaching obligations in the School of Education, she plans to continue active workalong several lines. She is at present engaged in committee work for the ChicagoWomen's Club and she is carrying on herwriting in the field of geography.The vacancy caused by the retirement ofMiss Baber will be filled by Miss EdithParker, who has been a teacher of geography in the Elementary School of the University of Chicago for a number of years.During the last four or five years she hasbeen a student in the Department of Geography of the University, and has taken alarge amount of graduate work. She isknown to the readers of the ElementarySchool Journal through her articles on significant units of study in geography. She isalso collaborating at the present time withmembers of the Geography Department inthe writing of a textbook on geography.Recent School of Education EventsThe Art Department had an exhibition ofstudents' work at the convention of theWestern Arts Association in Peoria, May3-7.

ChamberlinDean Shailer Mathews, Divinity SchoolEvery great university extends its activities beyond its own campus, through thecontributions of individual instructors toprogress in the scientific world, and to literature and art. Some universities have,as institutions, assumed a certain responsibility for education outside their local student body. To this class belongs the University of Chicago. Its "active" studentsare scattered over the world and representevery walk in life. In no field is this activity more noticeable than in the field ofreligion.Beginning on its own campus, the Divinity School maintains for the benefit of thechurches of Chicago a Church WorkersInstitute meeting weekly through three-quarters. During the Autumn and Winterquarters of 1920-21, students in this Institute came from forty-two different churchesand represented many denominations; someof them traveled ten to twenty miles eachevening. The program included courses inthe Historical and Social Interpretation ofthe Bible, the Psychology and Pedagogy ofReligion, Church History, Story-Tellingand Dramatization in Religious Education.In the Spring Quarter an Institute onWorld Christianity is attracting still largernumbers and presents a program includingnot only steropticon lectures by menstraight from the countries which they represent, but able discussions of internationalrelationships, and the social aspects of mis sions, each in relation to the field underconsideration.Off campus, nearly 7,000 students in 1920carried on special religious study throughthe American Institute of Sacred Literature, which is the name under which theUniversity conducts a large extension work.The courses used were elementary, presenting the Bible and religion simply, yetgiving the student the benefit of the samemodern, progressive attitude which characterizes the university classroom work.The services of efficient and well-knownmembers of the Divinity School faculty arefreely given for the preparation of thesecourses. For example, since July, 1920,Professor Ernest D. Burton, Chairman ofthe Institute, through his little pamphletof instruction on the study of Jesus ofNazareth, has taught two thousand persons,and Dean Shailer Mathews a similar number through his course book on The: Message of Jesus to Our Modern Life. Thesmall 16-page monthly which is the organof the Institute presents a new study courseeach year, which afterward becomes permanent, and prints editorials on vital religious topics which later take the form ofleaflets for distribution.The Institute renders important servicethrough its dozen or more reading coursesfor ministers, supplying not only well-organized courses containing 10 to 20 volumes, selected from the best the worldaffords, all carefully reviewed through asyllabus, but circulating traveling librariescontaining the volumes themselves. Thisservice is reserved first for the alumni ofthe Divinity School, but after them for anyminister who desires it.A more recent development is the extensive output of small pamphlets and leafletsreviving the old tract idea, but providingthoroughly up-to-date statements on vitalproblems, sometimes aimed at specific religious abuses, but more frequently embodying constructive statements of fundamentalreligious principles in terms of modern lifeand thought. A very notable series oftwo penny tracts entitled the Why I Believe Series represents such themes as God,the Church, Jesus Christ, the Bible, andImmortality.Last in order because less personal, butnot less important and far-reaching in theireducational influence, are the religious publications of the University Press. Themost recent development in this departmentis The Journal of Religion, edited by theEXTENSION— THE LETTER BOX--"me iyivniity racmty, raxing tne placeof The Biblical World and The AmericanJournal of Theology, each of which had agood subscription list and a long and honorable history. Although only three numbersof the new journal have been issued, thesubscription list is already greater than thatof its predecessors combined. One couldhave no better illustration of the insight ofthe University and its desire to meet needsrather than to maintain traditions.Professor Ernest D. Burton, Chairman ofthe Institute The Letter Box(Continued from page 262)A Hail from the PacificSanta Monica, CaliMay 4, 192:Mr. Secretary,The Alumni Council,The University of Chicago.Dear Sir:It will be a pleasure to be with youthe Thirtieth Anniversary of the foundof the University.

Its first experimentwas a graded series of textbooks, the firstof all modern series to appear, now containing twenty-six separate volumes, covering every school grade from kindergartenup and giving a great variety of choice foradults. This series is in use in hundredsof churches in all denominations. A seriesof college texts for religious study, designedto include biblical, social, historical-religi-ious, psychological-religious and missionfields already has eight volumes out. Athird series of eight volumes is devoted tothe discussion of Principles and Methodsof Religious Education and records manynotable experiments. The catalogue of Religious Publications of the Press, apart fomthese series, includes one hundred and nineteen titles, of which twenty or more havebeen published within the past few yearssince war conditions made publication exceedingly expensive and 'difficult. Amongthem are found the contributions of outstanding religious leaders and teachers.It is no exaggeration of the facts to saythat millions of printed pages sent out fromthe University, either as instruction courses,or as books .and periodicals, extend itsteaching function in the field of religionto thousands of homes and churches eachyear. To a greater or less extent this workhas been going on since the founding ofthe University. It must have had no littleshare in the process of transition whichcharacterizes the religious world in the pastquarter-century.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAlumni Affairs(Continued from page 249)ileasure that I am "doing my bit" as Sec-etary.I know one person who reads our maga-:ine "from kiver to kiver."Cordially yours,Esther Godshaw, '09, Secretary.Dean Mathews Addresses Dallas ClubMarch 31, 1921.Mr. A.

Twenty-two sat down to avery delightful luncheon prepared andserved by ladies of one of the Oak Parkchurches. Alumnae from '97 to '20 werethere and the true Chicago spirit seemsjust as strong in those from '97 as thosefrom '19 and '20.We used to advantage the reprints of"C" songs which you sent us for our meeting. Before leaving the tables we aroseand sang the Alma Mater which broughtback to all the "chapel hour" in the goodold days.We felt it a great treat to have MissEmily Frake, vice president of the Chicago Alumnae Club, as our guest. She gave usa most interesting talk on the aims of theChicago Alumnae Club of which our groupis a part. She made plain to us, our debtto the University and told us what we mightdo to partly repay the debt.The meeting was very informal andthrough the informality, we obtained anexpression from each one as to what theaim of our group should be.One of the suggestions which seemed tomeet with a unanimous approval, was theacquainting of the high school girls in ourown suburb with the University of Chicago.A committee on organization was appointed and by our next meeting whichwill be a tea on Wednesday, April 27th at2:30 at the home of Mrs. E.

Meissonier :From Les Contes Remois Wood Engraving by LeVille, 1861.The Graphic Arts, by Joseph Pennell.(The University of Chicago Press.) TheScammon Lectures of the Art Institute ofChicago. An advance announcement; thisbook will be published in June. One hundred and fifty illustrations. Royal octavo,xx+280 pages.Joseph Pennell, artist, illustrator, author,was born in Philadelphia, July 4, 1860. Hestudied at the Pennsylvania Academy ofFine Arts and the Pennsylvania School ofIndustrial Art and later abroad. He hasreceived medals at all the great expositions,has served on many important art commissions, and is a member of the leading artsocieties. His works are to be found in thewell-known galleries and collections ofEurope and the United States. In 1917-19Mr. Pennell rendered notable service in connection with the Bureau of Public Information and the Liberty Loan Committee. Heis the author of many books, among themseveral dealing with pen drawing, modernillustration, lithography, and allied subjects.Mr. Pennell is recognized as the greatestliving American authority on the graphicarts.In his first two lectures Mr. Pennell limitshis discussion ofthe graphic arts to drawing, engraving, and printing in their various forms. He also explains in detail thedifferent kinds of printing surfaces used and gives particular attention to the art of illustration, the several methods employed fromancient to modern times receiving carefulconsideration. The works of Diirer, Holbein, Lorrain, Rubens, Blake, Menzel, Meissonier, Whistler and later artists are freelyused for illustrative purposes."Etching: The Etchers and the Methods," furnishes material for two extremelyinteresting lectures. The author points outthe admirable qualities of some famousetchers and explains the technique of theirart. The materials that may be used inmaking an etching and the different methodsof handling them are carefully described.Lithography is the subject of the last twochapters. Facts about its invention anddevelopment are given, and just how it differs from wood engraving and etching ispointed out. In speaking of the lack ofnative-trained lithographers, Mr. Pennellsays: "Every other country has in itsacademy a school of graphic arts. We havenone. . . . Unless we get a school ofgraphic arts we are simply out of competition with the other countries."The value of the lecture on methods isincreased by a description of the varioussteps in the process of lithographing as it isactually being done in the presence of theassembly.OF THE CLASSES AND ASSOCIATIONS 27:NEWS OFTHE CLASSESAND ASSOCIATIONSAlumni Council Third Quarterly MeetingThe third regular quarterly meeting ofthe Alumni Council was held in the AlumniOffice on Tuesday, April 19, 1921.

The south end of Stagg Field, provided this fitted in with the general Reunionand class plans, was favored as to location.In view of the many features on this year'sReunion schedule, a Shanty program ofabout thirty minutes was favored; specialfeatures on the program are to be the observance of its Twenty-fifth Anniversary bythe Class of '96, and the initiation into theShanties of the Class of '01 at its TwentiethAnniversary.The following special committees wereappointed: Catering, Elinor Flood, Mrs.Davida Harper Eaton, and Josephine Allin;Shanty Umbrella. Scott Brown; Tam-o-shanters, Stacy Mosser, John F. Hagey, andHerbert Zimmerman; Building, A. A. Stagg,Henry G. Gale, Scott Brown, and A. G.Pierrot; Program, John P. Mentzer, Mrs.Nott Flint, Mrs. Agnes Cook Gale, andJames Weber Linn.It was planned to have a large book, ofmediaeval style and color, for signatures,the book to be kept in Harper Library as apermanent record of alumni attendance atReunions throughout the years. A Shantyletter was voted, to be included in the Reunion announcement. Throughout the meeting the keenest interest was shown in advancing the Shanty customs at all futureReunions.INTERSCHOLASTICThe Interscholastic(Continued from page 361)Sol Butler, Olympic champion; Frank Foss,holder of the world's record in the polevault; Frank Loomis, Olympic champion;and many other .stars of the first magnitude.Many of the high school men who compete in this year's meet will no doubt beholders of world's records and Olympiccontestants in the future. • Chicago needsthis calibre of athlete now more than sheever has before. And it is only throughthe hearty co-operation of the Alumni thatthis class can be brought to the University.All Alumni must help. They can do it bywriting to their high schools, asking thatthe star track men there enter the Interscholastic, and seeing that all of the exceptionally able athletes whom they know attend the meet and register at the University when they graduate. And while themeet is being held Alumni can help a greatdeal by getting out on the field and tellingthe star performers what a wonderful college Chicago really is, and by doing theirutmost to rush the athletes.Herbert Rubel, '22.WALTER A.

But as I lookedabout me at the mahogany andplate glass of my new office, asudden fear gripped me. WouldI be equal to my new duties; notin the sense of my mental capacity, but physically ? It was abig job. It meant heavy responsibilities, constant alertness,body and mind attuned to highproductive effort."Could I stand the strain? During the hard, ambitious years Ihad devoted to the interests ofthe Company, I knew I hadoverworked, and neglected myself physically."I could see that under this newburden ot responsibility andwork, less than ever was I goingto be able to devote time tokeeping fit. I might fail in thejob if I neglected it for play —and I might fail if 1 stuck tooclosely to it."My contact with my fellowofficers revealed them to me asmen always in condition, forceful, energetic. And I resolved toask them the secret of it. Each of the four gave tne same answer— keep the system clear of wastematter — avoid constipation. Everyone of them was using Nujol."The president himself told me,'Constipation takes more fromthe business world than anyother disease or influence. Manytimes the victim does not knowhe has it; often when he doesappreciate his condition, he triesto treat it with pills, salts, castoroil, or mineral waters — whichupset the system and tend tomake the constipation chronic.There is only one safe and sanetreatment for constipation."This is the Nujol treatment,based on a new principle propounded by Sir Arbuthnot Lane,an eminent English doctor, andrecommended now by physiciansfar and wide. Nujol merelysoftens the food waste so that itpasses naturally out of the system. It does not cause nauseaor griping, nor interfere with theday's work. I take it consistently myself, and I know it is usedalmost universally by prominentbusiness men'."Nujol■ 6 U.S. PAT. O^F.

What Is Research?SUPPOSE that a stove burns too much coal forthe amount of heat that it radiates. Themanufacturer hires a man familiar with theprinciples of combustion and heat radiation to make, ;.^experiments which will indicate desirable changes indesign. The stove selected as the most efficient isthe result of research.Suppose that you want to make a ruby in a factory—not amere imitation, but a real rubyi-indistinguish-ableby any chemical or physical test from the natural .,stone. You begin by analyzing rubies chemically andphysically. Then .you try to make rubies just asnature did, with the same chemicals and under similar. conditions. Your rubies are the result of research —research of a different type from that required toimprove the stove.. Suppose, as you melted up your chemicals to produce. rubies and experimented with high temperatures,you began to wonder how .hot the earth must have ;been . millions, of years ago when rubies were firstcrystallized, and what were the forces at play that made ",this planet what it is. You begin an investigation thatleads you far from rubies and causes you to formulatetheories to explain howthe earth, and, for that matter,how the whole solar system was created. That would xbe research of a still different type — pioneeringjntothe unknown to satisfy an insatiable curiosity.Research of all threetypes is conducted in the Laboratories of theGeneral Electric Company. But it is the third type of research-pioneering into the unknown — that means most, in the long run,even though it is undertaken with no practical benefit in view.At the present time, for example, the Research Laboratories ofthe General Electric Company are exploring matter with X-raysin order to discover nqt only how the atoms in different sub-Stances are arranged but how the atoms themselves are built up.The more you know about a substance, the more you can do withit. Some day this X-ray work will enable scientists to answermore definitely than they can now the question: Why is iron imagnetic? 'And then the electrical industry will take a great stepforward, and more real progress will be made in five years thancan be made in a century of experimenting with existing electricalapparatus. . . ■„.- . - ^You can add wirigs and stories to an old house.
