JUNE, 1921 No. 8Our alumni have been credited with holding a number of very successful reunions,but the gathering on the Quad-The rangles for 1921 surpassed, byReunion far, any previous alumni assembly. In attendance, in color, ininterest, in spirit and enthusiasm, everyevent on the program was a prize winner.The photographs and the several articles inthis number may give some idea of the gatherings, but only those who were on handcan truly appreciate the general success enjoyed. For a time, the weather threatenedserious interference — yet the crowds, theloyal rain-or-shine alumni, came. Had theweather been constantly promising, the attendance would unquestionably have beenmuch greater. As it was, capacity wastaxe.d at various events, and it was fortunate that this year's was to a large degreean out-of-doors affair. From now on, nodoubt, the main events will be held outdoors, not only because of necessity forready and adjustable accommodations butbecause everybody expressed the desire thatall future reunions be of a similar nature.Great credit is due to the Reunion Committee for arranging and carrying out themany details involved, particularly toGeorge R. Schaeffer, '06, general Chairman,Alice Greenacre, '08, J. D. '11, class organizations, Dr. John E. Rhodes, '76, and EdgarA. Buzzell, '86, Old University, Mrs. PhoebeBell Terry, alumni parade, S. Edwin Earle,'11, the Sing, Elinor Flood, ex-'99, the Picnic and the Shanty, William H. Lyman, '14,the Street Dance and arrangements, andothers. Especially to Alice Greenacre,"Ned" Earle, Elinor Flood, and Mrs. Terryshould thanks be gratefully extended for untiring efforts in work that involved manydetails and fullest attention. A number ofthe class officers also co-operated most helpfully. Without the constant assistance ofthe Committee and class officers no such large and successful Reunion could possiblyhave been held. May the alumni always befortunate in enlisting so loyal and so helpful a group to conduct future reunions 1 Anew and praiseworthy standard they established — may coming officers always aim toat least equal and, if possible, surpass it!* * *It is the fashion to judge of the presenceof college spirit at an institution by the enthusiastic co-operation, skill, and"College spirit with which undergraduatesSpirit" can conduct large performances,such, for example, as a parade ora circus. Now, it has been said — mostly byothers, of course — that Chicago undergraduates lack this particular brand of "collegespirit." Where some one from Chicagospeaketh thusly, it is usually some graduateor professional student who, having exhausted his own youthful interest and exertions at the school he formerly attended,naturally takes a rather blase attitudetoward undergraduate affairs. He makesthe mistake of assuming that his own lackof interest is characteristic of everybodyelse, undergraduates included, and as heassociates almost entirely with the coolminority becomes quite confirmed in hisopinion. He is at Chicago solely to cultivate a professional attitude — which, by theway, is just exactly what we want him tocultivate. Having singled out his purpose,we want him to achieve it in the best possible way — so long as he recognizes thathis is not the only boat on the lake.As to the undergraduate who "takes nointerest," he is almost always the reservedtype who would be equally uninterested nomatter where he went. Such good peopleare present in all undergraduate bodies.However, if anybody who attended our undergraduate Circus on Alumni Day stillthinks that "college spirit," as thus ex-293THE UNIVERSITY OE CHICAGO MAGAZINUpressed, is lacking, well, we must regard hisor her case as hopeless. The writer has either attended or seen detailed pictures andreports of such exhibitions at variousschools throughout the country. It is hisopinion that the Parade and Circus at Chicago was the equal of any held anywhereand, indeed, was superior to those that havebeen "pointed to with pride." About theonly way for any undergraduate body to surpass that show would be to quit schoolentirely and go into the circus business —which is not, we suspect, what undergrad- .uates are meant for. Accepting suchstandards as they are, whether in athletics,circuses, fraternity parties, comic operas,dances, college year-books, class dinners, orany other undergraduate activity, Chicagoreally has very little, if anything, to learnfrom others, and can, in fact, point the successful way to many.'96 Champions Again in Uniform!The members of the '96 Maroon baseball champions and the placesfrom which they came; are: Top row, left to right, H. E. Jones (Morgan Park), Henry T. Clarke (Omaha), C. S. Winton (New YorkCity), H. D. Abells (Morgan Park), O. J. Sweet (Des Moines), ScottBrown (Chicago), H. M.

The team and coachStagg are now all "twenty-five years younger." An entire team backafter twenty-five years — truly a unique tribute to Chicago! Thecrowd will never forget their fun and fine spirit..192 1 REUNION 295The 1921 Reunion"By far the best Reunion we ever had!""I certainly had a real time." "This is thekind of a Reunion we should have everyyear." "Well, it surprised me— I'm certainly glad I was lucky enough to be onhand." These, and similar expressions,were heard everywhere on Friday, June 10,and Saturday, June 11 — Alumni Day. Thephotographs in this number probably tellthe good story better than mere type canexpress it. A glance at the pictures willshow that the gatherings were all veryfully attended and that in all events therewere the elements of color, variety, and informal, happy good-fellowship. Throughout,indeed, the 1921 Reunion was characterizedby a manifest out-of-doors, get-together,happy-to-be-home-again spirit. Everyevent was successful and thoroughly enjoyed. Many, of course, were unable tostay throughout the entire week's program;the attendance records show, however, thatover the entire week, around three thousand.alumni came back to take some part in theprogram. For the Reunion affairs, the student Circus, and the Class Day and theConvocation program — that is, for "thewhole show" — the number of Alumni, students, and visitors who attended would total 1_._.._,._1._.._.1_„_i_,._„_„_.1_1,_^.+about nine thousand. As one "old-timer"put it — "It was a great occasion for a greatUniversity."On Thursday night, June 9, the best "C"Dinner ever held took place in HutchinsonCafe. The presence of the '96 baseballteam, the speeches by President Judson,Mr. Stagg, and others, all contributedtoward making this largest gathering of"C" men a memorable event. At the Sing,on Friday night, over 1,500 men took partbefore a great throng of spectators, withHutchinson Court most beautifully lighted.When the "C" trophies were awarded, special blankets were presented to the "C" menof the earlier days, and H. M. Atkinson, ofthe '96 baseball team, delighted the crowdwith his recital of "Casey at the Bat." TheSing closed with the singing of Wave theFlag and Alma Mater. The Street Dancethat followed, on University Avenue between 57th and 58th streets, was a new reunion feature and one that pleased the hundreds of dancers and spectators. With thenew class umbrellas lining the street asgathering places, the colored and flood lightsilluminating the scene, and a large orchestra, there was an informal "college atmos-A Part of the Reunion ParadeThe view shows a part of the Alumni section of the Parade as it entered the Quadrangles from University Avenue.

The parade went around the Circle and then passed through Hull Gateto Stagg Field.THE UNIVERSITY OFphere" about the Dance that made it anevent of general merriment.Alumni Day — Saturday, June 11, wasstarted auspiciously with the AlumnaeBreakfast in Ida Noyes Hall, at which overtwo hundred alumnae enjoyed an interestingprogram. At 1:30 the Midway was thescene of the formation of the Parade; theclasses appeared in the costumes they hadadopted, and each class carried its umbrella. The Parade wound through theUniversity grounds and circled Stagg Field.After the class umbrellas had been installedin a semi-circle, extending out on either sidefrom the Shanty, the Alma Mater was sung,led by the University Band, and the parad-ers then joined the spectators in the stadiumto watch the games.The Chicago-Waseda game was openedby ceremonies in which President Judson,the Japanese Consul, Professor Abe ofWaseda, who is accompanying the team,and Mr. Stagg, took part. A banner waspresented to Waseda University, and allthe Japanese players were presented withsilver basebalf-watchcharms on which wereengraved the date and other facts of theevent. The game was a close one, eachteam leading at times, with Chicago winning by a rousing eighth inning rally thatscored two runs, the final score being Chi- CHICAGO MAGAZINEcago 7, Waseda 5. This gave Chicago theodd game in the series of three played thisseason.Then the baseball champions of 1896 tookthe field! A three inning game was playedagainst the varsity. This was perhaps thefirst time that a whole team returned on atwenty-fifth anniversary to play a game ata reunion. The crowd certainly enjoyed the"battle," while the players and Mr. Staggpranced around "like kids again." As eachof the former stars stepped to the plateMr. Stagg introduced him to the crowd,reciting briefly his athletic achievementsand the town from which he hailed. F. D.Nichols, the first batter up, delighted — andsurprised — the crowd by knocking the firstball pitched for a homerun. It was anhonest-to-goodness hit. Later, GordonClarke executed a 'rather brilliant play,scoring from second on a hit by ignoringthird base and cutting for home straightthrough the pitcher's box. Atkinson's 200pounds became a trifle too heavy, and Mr.Stagg took a hand by running for him,skilfully stealing second by grabbing theball as it came by for the put-out. Umpire Walter Kennedy (the famous quarterback of the 1899 football champions) developed a case of partial eyesight.

The dinner was at the University Club, and followed by the businesssession.The speaker of the evening was one ofour own number, Mr. F. A. Stowe, whotalked most interestingly in his own pleasing manner.The officers who were elected are:President — Rev. Joseph Hazen, 179 Floraavenue.Vice-President — Clarence E.

Thepreliminary contest was held the evening ofMay 5th at Bradley Institute, with elevenentrants. Of these, six were chosen to appear in the finals, the evening of June 15th,at which time the winners will be awardedthe prizes. This contest is to form a definite part of the activities of Convocationweek, and is rousing quite an enthusiasticresponse.The club feels that the first meeting ofthe. year occurred so late that it will bedifficult, indeed, to hold another formalmeeting this year, and is regarding thiscontest as a second meeting, so far as possible. Next year it is the hope that nothingmay interfere with holding a meeting early,perhaps in October.The reputation which the Peoria Club hasgained, that of being a "live club," is one A F F A I R Swhich it hopes to retain, even though it mayhave had the appearance of inactivity for atime — but it was only the "appearance" andnot the reality.Yours for Chicago,Anna Jewett Le Fevre,Secretary-Treasurer.BRADLEY ORATORICAL CONTESTPreliminary May 6, 1921Sponsored by the University of ChicagoClub in the hope of stimulating greater interest in the art of public speech.

April 25, with a supper at 6:30.There were forty-seven present, twelve ofwhom were guests, being the wife or husband of a member, or some close friend ofthe University. The list is attached to thisreport.A constitution was adopted, copy of whichis enclosed. This was followed by the announcement of two junior members added tothe club — Paul Voorhies Rupp, born March29, 1921, and Elva Elizabeth Wade, bornMarch 31, 1921. Therefore, count on havingPaul and Elva in at least 1939.To the toast, "What shall our club under-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEtake to be and do?" a number of responseswere made, including one by Mr. James M.McConnel, to establish a scholarship in theUniversity for Detroit high school students.This was emphasized by Mr. B. J. Rivett ofNorthwestern High School. Miss FrancesClendening urged that the club not onlyestablish a scholarship, but be noted asstanding for definite ideals within the city.These toasts revealed the sentiment of thegroup in a way adequate to enable theexecutive committee to formulate its program for the following year.The Alumni Fund campaign was presented, but it was agreed that this mattershould be referred to individuals, since theclub was not yet organized sufficiently toget back of the matter as an organization.After a report from the Reunion WeekCommittee, which is preparing for a rallyat Reunion time, the meeting was closedwith an informal "sing" of Chicago songs,ending, of course, with Alma Mater, butincluding previously a song recently composed by one of our own members, Mr. J. H.Ransom, '99. For music for this, the tune to"Sweet Genevieve" was used, except thatthe last stanza was used as a refrain, andwe wrote special music for this. It wasenthusiastically received here. The author,however, modestly refused to call it anything but doggerel.It may be that by passing this song onnow, some of the others would like to makechanges which will enable all of us to useit to recall the "sweet bygone days."Submitted on behalf of the secretary.W.

Thework of the committee of seven — Mrs. Lehrburger, Mrs. Hadley, Mr. Anderson, Mr.Stearns, Mr. Owen, Mr. Willett and myself, with the interested cooperation of theAlumni in this state and in Maine, NewHampshire and Rhode Island — culminatedin the dinner which thirty-two of us attended last night at the Hotel Bellevue inBoston.We had sent notices to about two hundred and twenty alumni in New England,but finding that a club was organized inVermont and in Connecticut, we could nottake the name of the New England Association, hence the change. A number ofthose who responded with regrets havemoved to other parts of the country, and. Iwill send you their addresses as soon as Ihave them listed. But all those who did respond, about one hundred and twenty-five,were most cordial in their interest and desire that this group should be organized,and the atmosphere of the gathering lastnight certainly indicated earnest belief inthe University.We adopted the Constitution and By-Lawsformulated by the Alumni Council, with thechanges marked on the enclosed copy, andelected the following officers for the year:President, Elbridge Anderson, '85; Vice-President, Benton Moyer, '12; Treasurer,Herbert L. Willett, '11; Secretary, MonaQuayle Thurber, '13; Executive Committee,the four officers and Pauline Levi Lehrburger, '17, and Robert B. Owen, '11.Dues were set at one dollar. That completed the organization.Mr. Anderson acted as toastmaster, calling first on all the group for songs andcheers. Mr. Willett played and Jasper King,'20, led the singing and the cheers. I canassure you the best voices that ever wentthrough the University must have come eastward; and it made those of us who havebeen off the campus a good many years feelquite homesick.In introducing James M. Nicely, '20, whospoke most interestingly on recent undergraduate activities, Mr. Anderson recalledthe days when he played LaCross and baseball on championship teams. That was before the day of football and the Chicago-Princeton game which Mr. Nicely urgedus to attend next October. Some of thefaculty whom we regarded with such awe would have been very much amused at thecomments on recents changes that have beenmade in the various departments! Mr. Anderson was interested to know whether theWashington Prom was a development of theold Washington supper, and Dr. Atwood,the chief speaker, opened his remarks withan explanation of that point and continuedwith amusing reminiscences of his ownundergraduate days when they formed fraternities and societies and established theProm, because they wanted to, and therewere no traditions to interfere. Then hewent on to discuss the very great influencewhich the University is wielding through itsfaculty and its alumni in every departmentof American life. The freshness of idea,willingness to enter new fields, and itsstrategic geographic position, give it aunique place in this country, pre-eminentamong the great universities. The greatestpurpose of American education today is toshow students how to meet the problems ofliving together, and the University, withthe "Chicago" idea of co-education and itsgreat interest in the natural and social sciences is making a very great contributiontoward the solution of our every-day problems. I think we all felt with Dr. Atwoodthat it is more and more of a privilege tohave been a student at the University, andincreasingly a duty and a pleasure to keep inclose touch with its development.The last speaker was Rev. Wm. W. Evertsof the class of 1867, the oldest class represented. Rev. Everts had been asked, agood many years ago to call the first groupof Chicago Alumni together in Boston, andwe were especially glad that he was ableto attend last night.. The program closed with the singing ofthe Alma Mater, and we adjourned until nextfall.I want the Alumni Council to know thatthe Directory has been the most tremendoushelp in reaching all these people here inNew England and I cannot be gratefulenough for all the work that has gone intocompiling it. The song sheets and "C"tags were a great addition to the dinner, too,and the Council and you certainly have thethanks of this Executive Committee at least.With greetings to all the Alumni at theThirtieth Reunion, from the MassachusettsClub, believe me.Cordially yours,Mona Quayle Thurber, '13, Secretary.Dr. Norlin Addresses Colorado AlumniDr. George Norlin, Ph.D., '00, Presidentof the University of Colorado, whose biography appeared in our May number, wasthe speaker at a meeting of the Universityof Chicago alumni of Colorado, held May28, at a luncheon at the Savoy Hotel, inDenver.

G. Pierrot,Alumni Council,University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:It is with deep pleasure that I write youof the initial meeting of the University ofChicago Club of St. Louis. Thirty of usgathered at the University Club and thespirit of fellowship and informality was withus completely. Thirty others sent theirregrets via card. The attached report namesthose attending and the officers elected. Theidea prevailed that youth could serve better, and it was with this idea that McDonald was elected president and myself secretary. The enthusiasm that everyone showedwas splendid. It insured our success. Forexample, in a speech of mine, I referred several times to the pep of us younger folks,and one of the more elderly ladies, who iscertainly going to help us a great deal,remonstrated "We have pep, too." It wouldhave done your heart good- to see howglad we all were to be together. Every oneof the thirty will be a staunch supporterof the club.We adopted the by-laws suggested by theCouncil, except that we left the matter ofthe quorum open and also decided to takein any alumni or ex-students who livenearby, whether in Missouri or Illinois. Weadopted yearly dues of $1 and twenty-fourof the thirty present showered me withgreen at once.The members were so pleased with thegathering that we agreed to hold a dinnerMonday night, June 13, as practically allof them will leave town the end of that weekfor the summer. Arrangements have beenmade and 139 letters were sent out today toSt. Louisans, in accordance with copieswhich were mailed you and Harold* Swift.Twenty-three of those present at the meeting pledged their attendance at the banquet. Some will bring husbands or wives. I'llkeep in touch with you, as to developments.Yours for Chicago,Harry X.

Tryon, have been at work upon a newplan for the annual reunion and dinner ofresident students, graduates and formerstudents of the School of Education. Lastyear the celebration, coming in convocation week, was hampered and crowded bythe large number of other events progressing at the same time. This year the committee decided to take advantage of theSpring Conference, with Secondary Schools,which brings large numbers of our alumnito the University. The Friday evening program which has been provided by the University in previous years was given up thisyear. What better time for the School ofEducation Reunion? The "consensus ofopinion among the two hundred who satdown to the dinner Friday evening, May 6,was that this date ought to become a tradition for the alumni banquet.The Visitors' ProgramOne pleasant feature of the day was thepresence of' more than one hundred visitorswho, during the morning and early afternoon, were observing the activities of college, high-school and elementary-schoolclasses. Provision had been made for theirreception by a committee of resident students, and by groups of high-school studentswho acted as guides throughout the buildings. The Home Economics and the ArtDepartments, respectively, had prepareddemonstrations and exhibits. High-schoolorchestras and drama classes entertained;laboratories were in full procedure. Manyteachers, given a visiting day, find it veryconvenient to combine a half-day visit inthe forenoon and attendance upon the afternoon sectional programs of the Conference,culminating all at the alumni dinner in theevening."The Dinner"Two other innovations marked the evening program, in which more than two hundred participated. A buffet supper for themodest sum of one dollar was served in theupper-floor rooms of Blaine Hall. Thiswas a pleasant contrast to long formal dinners. Even better was the program whichfollowed. The entire crowd moved intoanother room, and, instead of listening toafter-dinner speeches, were delighted by avaried program. Several selections weregiven by the University High School Orchestra. Then Professor E. J. Goodspeedgave an illustrated talk which showed the building plans for the University. Themagnificent new chapel, with its 280-foottower, the new Quadrangle Club, the newmodern language building, the medicalbuildings to be erected on the south of theMidway, and other new developments, allbecame very real. Following this, ProfessorBertram Nelson read Lady Gregory's "TheRising of the Moon," a powerful Irish playof the modern period. Dean Gray, fromtime to time throughout the evening, introduced pertinent facts and interpretationsabout the life of the School of Education.Finally, the chairs were cleared away for adelightful two hours of dancing for thosewho cared to remain.The New OfficersThe alumni interests of the School ofEducation will be directed in 1921-22 bythe following board of officers, duly electedat the annual meeting:President — W. E. McVey, principal,Thornton Township High School, Harvey,Illinois.First Vice-President — Karl D.

A.Humphreys, Winnetka, Illinois; FannieTempleton, Chicago, Illinois; R. L. Lyman,University of Chicago.The incoming officers are planning an'active campaign for the coming year. Theyhope to make the Alumni Association continue its growth until it shall become apowerful agency both for the School andthe University, and for the former studentswho are in the field. It is hoped that everyalumnus will lend his most cordial cooperation.The Past Year's Work of theAlumni CommitteeDuring the past year the Alumni Committee, working with Dean Gray and theexecutive officers of the Association, haveendeavored to keep the alumni in close touchwith University affairs. Through the cooperation 'of this Magazine, four pages ofnews are published each month, includingnearly five hundred personal items concerning alumni and former students.

For his preparatory education he wentto the Princeton-YaleSchool, Chicago. Naturally enough, however,he proceeded to forgetabout the eastern colleges and, instead, entered the University ofChicago on a scholarship. At Chicago heproved that it was quitepossible to be very "active" in campus affairsand yet know somethingof what was going on inthe classroom, for PhiBeta Kappa is includedamong his many honors. He was electeda member of several class societies, including Owl and Serpent, was on the Junior andSenior College councils, became businessmanager of the '04 Cap and Gown, president of the Reynolds Club in 1905, a University Marshall, '04 and '05, vice-presidentof the '05 Senior class, and is a member ofBeta Theta Pi fraternity.In 1905, after graduation, Riley enteredthe Chicago bond house of N. W. Harris& Co., Chicago, as a messenger. In 1907he went in the municipal bond departmentof E. H. Rollins & Sons, Chicago, and forfour years was connected with that firmin various positions in Chicago, Los Angelesand San Francisco, and becoming their foreign representative in London, England.

Occasional articleson financial conditions,by Riley, have been published in the financialcolumns of the dailypress.During the war, Rileywas active in the Liberty Loan campaignsthroughout SouthernCalifornia, in which heserved as director of theIndustrial Organizationsfor Los Angeles. Riley'sdivision sold over $65,-000,000 of Liberty bondsand, in the fourth campaign, Los Angeles madeone of the most remarkable records in the country, approximately 50%of the city's populationbeing represented by individual subscribers.On September 2, 1914,he was married in NewYork City to Edith Powell, of London.There are two children, Sheldon Powell, age6 years, and Lillian Barbara, age 3 years.Riley is a member of the University Clubof Los Angeles, of the California Club, andof the Los Angeles Country Club. His"family and business," he states, are hishobby, however. "Some people may findtime for golf," says he, "but I do not."James Sheldon Riley is not only a successful investment banker, but also a "successful alumnus," for in various ways inChicago and in California he has contributed toward the advancement of alumni affairs. About the University he says: "Asplendid institution, and one that any graduate Can point to with pride as his or herof the organizers of Perrin, Drake & Riley, Alma Mater.

'04"I think the University of Chicago is thegreatest potential educational institution inAmerica. It will lead if it is not allowedto. lose its independent, progressive spirit."So says- Roy Keehn, '02, J.D. '04.Roy Dee Keehn, to be more specific, isa prominent alumnus who was born on afarm near Ligonier, Indiana, November 7,1875, the son of a farmer and stock breeder.He obtained his early education in the Indiana common schools, his preparatory education in De Pauw Preparatory School, andthen entered Indiana University at Bloom-ington. For three years, '95 to '97, Royplayed on the Indiana football team, andwas prominent in theundergraduate debatingand publication activities.He then came to the University of Chicago, and,with characteristic energy,entered undergraduate affairs, becoming associateeditor of the Cap andGown, editor-in-chief ofthe Monthly Maroon, Secretary, and then President,of the Reynolds Club, andpresident of the SeniorLaw class of '04. He isa member of Phi KappaPsi and Phi Delta Phi(Law) fraternities.While a student at Chicago, Roy was also amember of the SecondarySchool Faculty of the University, and a tutor inmathematics. He has oneson, 12 years of age, nowin the University HighSchool.In 1904, after beinggraduated, he entered thegeneral practice of law inChicago, and rose in his profession withunusual rapidity. Included in his presentlarge practice are: Legal representative ofthe general management of the Hearst publications in Chicago, financial advisor toMr. Hearst in Chicago, a director of theUniversity State Bank, (on which board, byRoy D. Keehn, the way, John F. Hagey, '98, and LawrenceH. Whiting, ex-'13, are also directors), andother important legal and financial matteredDuring the last year of the war, Keehnserved as Major Judge advocate, assignedto the staff of General Franklin J. Bell incommand of the Eastern Department, U. S.A., at Governor's Island, New York. Hewas also active in Liberty Loan and similarwork in the first years of the war.Keehn has written some editorials andincidental articles published in newspapersfrom time to time. His strong interest inpublications in general might easily be inferred from his undergraduate activities atboth Indiana and Chicago. He is equallyinterested in University education, however,and has given to Chicagoscholarship and otherfunds. He is a member ofthe University, ChicagoAthletic, Mid-Day, andIroquois Clubs, of theSouth Shore and OlympiaFields Country clubs, ofthe Chicago, Illinois Stateand American bar associations, and is a KnightTemplar. Through theseorganizations he has rendered various civic, political,charitable and similar services.Roy, like J. S. Riley,says he has no "hobby" —that his work is his hobby.Just the same, havingserved as chairman of oneof our Reunions, and inalumni club and otherphases of our alumni activity, we can well regardalumni work as somethingof a Keehn hobby.

Two drives have been made for membership of our people in the General AlumniAssociation, resulting in bringing our totalof fully active members who receive theMagazine regularly up to three hundred andfifty. This very respectable showing places the School of Education Alumni membership nearly on a par with the other colleges. The committee hopes to double themembership next year, and urges each onewho reads this article to pass on the wordto some friend who might be interested incontinuing and strengthening his affiliations with his Alma Mater.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESInterest has been largely centered aboutthe Alumni program and the 1921 graduating class during the last two weeks ofthe Spring Quarter. Reunions, the Interfraternity Sing on June 10, Student Circuson June 11, Class Day June 13 and the Convocation exercises June 14, wound up theyear in whirlwind fashion.The Class of 1921, which has been activeall year in giving dinners and dances, announced as its gift to the University a contribution to the Student Loan Fund.Among the many student activities of thelast month have been the annual Blackfriar show, "The Machinations of Max,"which played to six crowded houses; theInterclass Hop, June 3 in Bartlett Gymnasium; and two productions by the Dramatic Club. Three one-act plays by students were presented by the club May 27,John Gunther, '22, Lucy Sturges, '21, andJohn Goodrich, '21, being the playwrights.On June 3 the club presented "John Ferguson," a highly dramatic play by St. JohnErvine which had never before beenstaged in Chicago.The Order of Blackfriars set a recordfor new members this year, taking in 85men including all of the cast and chorusof the 1921 show, the specialty actors, andmen who had assisted in the mechanics ofthe production. Allen Holloway has beenelected Abbot of the Friars for 1922 andFrank Linden, '23, will manage the 1922show. Plot summaries for the 1922 production have already been submitted, so as toenable the committee to better pick theauthor for next year and co-operate longeron the show. University women are alsomaking a bid for dramatic honors withtheir "Portfolio," similar to the Blackfriars,but formerly produced only biennially. Ithas been decided to make the Portfolio anannual affair and a call has already goneout for manuscripts for 1922.The 1921 Cap and Gown returned to prewar standards with a volume of over 600 pages containing many novel features. Theannual is dedicated to Professor "Teddy"Linn, and is notable for elaborateness ofdetail and completeness of record. RichardFlint, '22, was editor-in-chief and RobertAdler, '22, business manager. A "review"of the book will appear in the July numberof the Magazine. For 1922 Russell Ward,'23, has been elected editor-in-chief andJackson Moore, '23, business manager.At the annual elections of The DailyMaroon H. L. Rubel, '22, was elected managing editor to succeed John Ashenhurst,'21. Burdette Ford, '22, was elected businessmanager, Gilbert Beatty, '23, advertisingmanager, and Frank Linden, '23, circulationmanager. Mary Hayes, '22, is to bewomen's editor, and Arvid C. Lunde, '22,athletics editor. Four juniors, Clyde Larish,Richard Eliel, Olin Stansbury, and LennoxGrey, will have charge ol the news department. Jean Brand, Russell Carrell, C. R.Pierce, Edward Churchill and Robert Pollak, sophomores, were elected day editors.Forty-one students, an unusually largenumber, were elected into Phi Beta Kappaat the June convocation. Of these severalwere elected with a grade of B who hadbeen prominent in campus activities andathletics.The President has appointed the following marshals and aides for the coming was announced at the Interfaternity Sing:Head Marshall, Richard Foster Flint; marshals, Alvin Brickman, Robert Cole, RobertCollins, Percival Gat.;s, Lennox Grey,Harry Hargreaves, Wilbur Hatch, DudleyJessopp, Harold Lasswell, Charles Merriam,Elwood Ratcliff; aides, Louise Apt, Catherine Moore, Dorothy Augur, Marie Niergarth, Helen Palmer, Frances Crozier,Beatrice Marks, Dorothy Sugden, FayeMillard, Virginia Foster, Virginia Hibben,and Margaret Lillie.The Spring Quarter ended June 17, closinga successful and crowded year of Universitylife. The University is back to normalcyagain — "Freddy" Starr will be with us oncemore, returning from far-away Tokyo!Harry Bird, Jr., '22.307BaseballRead them, and if you are so inclined,weep. The ball team, 9 lost and 3 won; thetrack team, four defeats in four dual meets,3 points in the conference. But to lightenthe story a little, the winning of the conference doubles tennis championship, and themost prosperous Interscholastic that Chicago has known, were also events of the pastmonth.The baseball scores of May and June:Wisconsin, 7; Chicago, 1.Ohio, 20; Chicago, 5.Michigan, 6; Chicago, 5,Chicago, 4; Waseda, 2.Illinois, 10; Chicago, 1.Purdue, 2; Chicago, 1.Michigan, 12; Chicago, 3.Waseda, 8; Chicago, 7.Northwestern, 10; Chicago, 9.Chicago, 13; Purdue, 12.Chicago, 7; Iowa, 4.The two victories in the last games, withthat over Northwestern in April, pulledCoach Merrifield's team out of the cellar,ahead of Northwestern and Iowa. Few Chicago teams have ever played great baseball,but no Chicago team probably ever put upsuch a generallv weak exhibition as theteam of 1921. The players didn't hit, norfield, and they consistently played as ifthey expected to be beaten.One main cause of trouble was the lackof good pitching. Crisler's arm went badearly in the season, and that left Merrifieldwithout a pitcher. Chenicek, who. neverpitched before, turned in some good innings,and more bad ones, but considering hislack of experience, did well. Dixon, whois a first baseman, and Schultz, who is anoutfielder, tried to pitch when Chenicekfailed, but were ineffective. Without pitching, a conference team, like any other ballteam, is practically helpless, but the playersapparently figured that they might as wellget beaten without making too much of afuss about it.The Track TeamThe track team was known to be weakbefore the season started, and was furthercrippled by the loss of Capt. MortimerHarris, a very good quarter miler. Harriswas conditioned in a law school examination,and lost to the team, because the rules make no provision for retaking an examinationuntil after the end of the school year. Withhim on the relay team, Chicago would havewon the conference relay. As it was, theteam got 'a fourth, which, with Redmon'sfifth place in the hammer, brought the onlyMaroon points. In dual meets this season,Wisconsin defeated Chicago, 105-30; Iowawon, 94^-39^; Northwestern won, 89^-49$^; Michigan won, 108-27. Hall in thehurdles, Brickman in the quarter, Bartky inthe half, Krogh in the mile, Dooley in thetwo-mile, Redmon in the hammer, Fouchein the weights, and Schneberger in thejumps, were the most consistent duringthe season. The relay team which tookthe conference fourth was composed ofHall, Brickman, Pearce and Bartky.TennisHarry Vories and "Pat" Segal, doubleschampions of 1920, again won the title forChicago this season, defeating Preucil andYeager of Illinois in the finals. Chicago wasuniformly successful in dual meets also,Golde and Frankenstein being the other twomembers of the team which represented theMaroon. The latter two were pairedagainst Vories and Segal in the semi-finalsof the doubles, but forfeited their chancein order to give the first team a betterchance for the final.BasketballRobert Halladay, center for two seasonson the basketball team, and football player,was elected captain of the basketball teamfor 1922. Six "C's" were awarded, to Capt.Crisler, Halladay, Birkhoff, Vollmer, McGuire and Stahr.Inter-Scholastic ResultsKansas City Manual Training High wonthe Seventeenth Stagg Interscholastic, witha total of 22J4 points. Beatrice, Neb., wassecond, with 16 points, and Vallejo, Calif.,was third, with 15. Lake Forest won theAcademy division, with Culver second.More than 500 high school and academymen competed, the largest number ever entered. Although it was in 1917 that thelast Interscholastic was held, the meet thisseason was successful from every standpoint, and Director Stagg was greatlypleased with the revival.W. V.

Who get thesejobs? Athletes. The best athletes get thebest paid jobs, if it comes to a choice. Theyget the jobs because they are athletes whomit is desirable to keep at the University, notbecause they are expert salesmen of tickets,or expert at their jobs. In other words,they use their athletic ability to earn money,and they are paid money because of theirathletic ability. I don't object to this practice, but fully approve it. But see what itreally means.The only distinction I see between earning money this way and earning it byplaying ball is that they can play ball betterand can earn more money at it (incidentally giving them more time for theirstudies), and they like it more.The rule ought to be carried out logicallythroughout the University. A student whois a good stenographer should be told thathe is free to earn money in any way exceptby stenography. He may wait tables, sellshoes on Saturdays, play in orchestras, cutgrass, tend furnaces, or do anything formoney except stenographic work. If hehas had newspaper experience, all jobsshould be open to him except acting ascorrespondent for some newspaper, or securing a place on the staff of the DailyMaroon. If he is an experienced salesman,the University employment bureau shouldgladly _ assist him to secure any kind ofposition except one where he must sellsomething. All persons found guilty ofearning money at the thing they can dobest should be barred from athletic activities.Mr. Stagg says many other college activities are open to the professional athlete— perhaps he would be eligible to the Blackfriars or Glee Club. But if he is a professional, isn't his participation in one college activity just as objectionable as in another? If you admit him to one, vou therebyadmit his just right to all the others. Faculty standards of scholarship rigidlyenforced would afford all the necessary safeguards. Charles F. McElroy,A. M. '06, J. D. '15.On TeachingEvanston, May 7, 1921.Mr. A. G. Pierrot,Univ. of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:1 was pleased to receive the very excellentbooklet called "The University of Chicagoin 1921." The person who planned to publish such a book for the alumni deservesmuch credit. We alumni are proud of themagnificent buildings that will soon riseon both sides of "The Midway," and hopethat we may live to see such structures, andstill greater ones, line "The Plaisance" fromend to end.Would it not be well, however, for ouralma mater to look for greater lovelinesswitfiin these grand temples of learning, aswell as without? "Lovely is that lovelydoes." Would it not, then, in these days ofstudent unrest — as well as of political andsocial unrest — be wise for our "fostermother" to teach her younger sons anddaughters, the undergraduates, better? Whois to blame for much of the lack of studyby college students? Incompetent teachersin a university mean incompetent students;incompetent students mean incompetent citizenship. In all fields — except college teaching—a man is selected because he has provedefficient; only college teachers — few wishto be called teachers — are not so selected.An investigation before appointment, as towhether they are really good teachers, ratherthan research men, is rarely made; the question is usually ignored. Chicago, 3rou errsadly in this respect. "All its graduates,"says the little book, "who in industry,science, education or public service arefaithfully at work are serving the Universitywell." We hope they all do so. May wein turn, then, suggest that the Universityserve the students, the coming alumni, well?We again hope so. University, be beautiful;but be beautiful within, as well as without.Respectfully yours,H. E. Smith, '03.The '76 Class LetterMay 25, 1921.Forty-five years ago do vou remember:Farwell Hall, Orations, Diplomas, and a sadfarewell to old Chicago University?Well, let us meet each other once again,those that remain, on Alumni Day, at theLETTER BOX 309University of Chicago, Saturday, June 11,and spend the day recalling those happydays of long ago.Very special efforts are being made thisyear to bring out the old University graduates, and you will be glad to see these old■fellows of other classes again.I am enclosing the program.Don't miss the University Sing on Friday night and the other features of theevening.

Pierrot,Secy., Alumni Association.My Dear Pierrot:(This is a long-delayed communicationsent on the theory that it's "better late thannever," with most humble apologies for nothaving shown "signs of life" sooner thanthis.)There are some twelve odd Chicagoansand ex-Chicagoans doing graduate or undergraduate work here at Harvard this year.(This number includes only those who tookall or part of their undergraduate work atAlma Mater.) Early last fall we organizedinto a small, but loyal, Chicago band anddubbed ourselves the "Chicago Club atHarvard." Our "premiere" took place onOctober 23 — the day of the Illinois game.'Twas an auspicious opening we had — thetelegram telling of the signal and "moral"victory Alma Mater had won arrived aftera most rousing session of songs and cheershad subsided and we were about tobreak up!Since then we have "gathered" two orthree times. We had the extreme pleasureof a luncheon with Dr. Soares while he washere as University Preacher. It was a greattreat to hear his familiar voice and to feelhis "Chicago" sincerity (for it is a specialkind) and enthusiasm once more — and in aforeign land, where things are oftimesmore different than one might normallythink, it seemed especially good. Then, too,we got some really first hand news of AlmaMater, which is always most acceptable.Some Boston Alumni have taken the finalstep toward the organization of a Massachusetts Association and on Thursday evening, June 2, at the Hotel Bellevue, Boston,things started off with a bang — but lest I tread upon territory not within my sphere,I'll say no more than that those at Cambridge who attended did enjoy it and pledgetheir allegiance thereto during their staysin Cambridge.Sincerely yours,Jasper S. King, '20.P. S. — The Harvard Chicagoans send theirbest for a successful reunion, regrettingonly that they can't be "on deck."A Letter of Appreciation2184 So. St. Paul St.,Denver, Colorado,May 10, 1921.Mr. A. G. Pierrot,Secretary, Alumni Council,The University of Chicago.My Dear Mr. Pierrot:In reply to your note of May 2, I wishto say that I expect to pay my pledge infull, and enclosed you will find my chequefor $100, covering the same. I have afeeling of reverence for the University ofChicago. This is not only a selfish reverencerising out of my own happiness and richness of experience while in residence there,but more a deep appreciation for the thoroughness and refinement with which itcarries on its extensive operations. Onehundred dollars is a very small gift in return for what it has given me. However,I hope to be continuously associated withthe Alumni and Alumnae in their effort toshow loyalty, and perhaps I may, again,find some way to help a little.Very cordially yours,Ella Metsker, '06,(Mrs. Edward W.

Pierrot,Secretary, Alumni Council.Dear Pierrot:On April 16th, representatives of the different organized college groups in Detroitheld their third Intercollegiate Luncheon, attended by five hundred men.Eddie Collins and Ty Cobb were ourspeakers, but the part that was most interesting had to do with the songs and yellsby the different college clubs. Yale, Harvard, Cornell, Dartmouth, Princeton, Pennsylvania, Iowa, including a large numberof others with very few representatives, andwith Chicago and finally Michigan with itslarge number, made the luncheon hour amemorable meeting.This was the first time that Chicago menhad been represented, owing to the fact thatwe had not before been organized.

This school, which hasbeen in operation for a number of years,was organized originally to give specialtraining to Jewish children who could not receive in the public schools the forms ofeducation best adapted to their individualneeds. The conditions which existed at thetime of the founding of the school havebeen so modified by the enlargements ofpublic education and by changes in thesocial conditions of the constituency forwhich the school was organized that it hasbecome desirable to canvass in a thoroughgoing way the possibilities of this school'sorganization in order to advise its directorswith regard to the wisest course to be pursued either by way of reorganizing theschool entirely or by way of enlarging itsrange of activities.Dr. Katharine Blunt, head of the Department of Home Economics, has gone to NewYork as a delegate to the Curie meetings.She will also go to Vassar College while inthe East to attend a conference which hasbeen called to discuss curriculum changes atVassar.The Art Department has adopted a policyof showing from time to time an exhibitionof the work of the students within thedepartment. During the past month anexhibition was arranged which showed, insequence, the work of all courses from themost elementary to the most advanced. Itincluded work in drawing, painting, design, color, modeling, pottery, batik, woodblock printing and other applied arts. Thisexhibition will be shown at the beginningof each summer term.The Kindergarten-Primary Club had atea for the alumni on the afternoon ofMay 6 preceding the Alumni Dinner.The investigations of reading that havebeen carried on for some years past inthe educational laboratory of the Schoolof Education have received the support ofthe Commonwealth Fund to the extent of$15,000 for the coming year. This amountwill make possible a very great enlargementof the apparatus for these investigationswhich consists chiefly of a special cameradesigned to photograph the eyes of pupils while they are reading. These photographsin turn make it possible to study the development of the children's reading ability.In addition to increasing the apparatus, thefun'd will be expended in employing a number of scientific workers who will devotepart or all of their time to special studiesof the reading ability bf children of differenttypes and different grades of training. Professors Gray, Buswell and Judd of the Department of Education will devote a portionof their time to these investigations.The Commonwealth Fund has also subsidized, to the -extent of $1,500, a preliminaryinvestigation of the results of modern language teaching in high schools. This investigation is being carried on by ProfessorMorrison with the co-operation of Mr.Holzinger and Mr. Bovee. A series ofpreliminary tests have already been triedout in a number of schools and the resultsare being organized with a view to extending the range of the tests and their application.Miss Troxell, formerly of the UniversityElementary School and now Kindergarten-Primary Director at the Dillon State NormalSchool in Idaho, is spending the springquarter studying in the College of Education.Assistant Superintendent Packer of Detroit, Michigan, addressed the EducationClub on May 23 on the principles underlying the new building program in Detroit.Women today are asking, as never. before,for definite information about the selectionof their life work and are trying to fitthemselves for the best possible service tothe community. They want to know whatthe opportunities for service are and whattraining is necessary to meet these opportunities. The Home Economics Departmenthas published recently a leaflet entitled,"Some Opportunities in Home Economics."The leaflet briefly discusses the opportunities in teaching, extension work, socialwork, business, dietitian in a hospital,writing and home making as a profession —all of which are open to one who has completed a course in the Department.

A new volume in the Scammon Lectures delivered at the Art Institute,Chicago (University of Chicago Press).Lorado Taft, artist, lecturer, and author,was born in Elmwood, Illinois, April 29,1860. After graduating from the Universityof Illinois, he studied for three years in the£cole des Beaux Arts. He is professoriallecturer in the University of Chicago, nonresident professor of art in the Universityof Illinois, and a member of the Board ofArt Advisers of the State of Illinois. Heis also a member of all of the leading artassociations, and author of The History ofAmerican Sculpture, a standard work of outstanding merit. Mr. Taft is generally acknowledged one of the most interesting andpopular lecturers on art and especially onsculpture. Without stint he gives himselfto proclaiming the gospel of art in thestudio, in the classroom, and from the lecture platform, for he loves the world, humanity, truth and beauty.Rather paradoxical is the thought of anart as enduring as sculpture being subject. to fashion. However, in his new book,Modern Tendencies in Sculpture, Mr._ Taftassures us that styles come and go in thesculptor's studio as in the millinery shops.The first chapter is devoted to the workof Auguste Rodin. Through the aid ofnumerous illustrations the great achievement Lorado Taftof this notable man is presented in sequence,with comments which should be helpful toward a just appraisal. In the second chapter Rodin's influence is traced throughoutthe story of more recent products of theFrench school. The weakness of contemporaneous monumental art in France is discussed, but over against it is shown theadmirable work of a group of younger menwho express with vigor and emotionalcharm the feelings of a new generation.The pre-war sculpture of Germany wasvery remarkable and has exerted a wide influence upon the recent art of all Europe.German sculpture is the subject of one ofMr. Taft's lectures, while the varied products of other countries to the north andsouth give rich material for a fourth.The fifth chapter is devoted to Saint-Gaudens, America's greatest sculptor, andhis noble art is treated with sympatheticappreciation. The work of certain of hisyounger contemporaries and successors fillsthe remaining pages of the handsome volume. Here, as in the other chapters, theauthor has attempted no encyclopedic history — no artist's "Who's Who — " but hasselected merely those who show striking"tendencies." As he tells us, there remainmany whose output is so uniformly dependable that they did not clamor for admissionto this particular work.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OFTHE CLASSESAND ASSOCIATIONSANNUAL ELECTIONThe College Alumni Association + +■•)As announced in the May number of theMagazine, the annual election in the College Alumni Association was held duringthe latter part of May and the first weekin June, the regular postcard ballot beingmailed to all Association members.

E. Slaught, re-,ported that seventy-seven had received thedegree during the academic year 1920-21,including those who were about to be admitted at this Convocation. The total number of doctors has now reached 1302, ofwhom 35 have died, leaving 1267 living doctors of the University. Of the 35 deceased,two have passed on during 1920-21, namelyHiram Van Kirk, Ph. D., 1900, who diedAugust 19, 1920, and Emanuel Schmidt, whodied March 18, 1921. Dr. Van Kirk wasformerly dean of the Berkeley Bible Institute and was pastor of the St. Luke'sChurch at Noroton, Connecticut, at the timeof his death. His major work for the doctorate was in Systematic Theology. Dr.Schmidt was for seventeen years Presidentof Adelphi College, Seattle, Washington,and was recently professor of Old Testament in the Swedish Theological Seminary,St. Paul, Minnesota.It has become customary to welcome thenew doctors at these luncheon occasions.In this case the names of 27 were readfrom the Convocation program, each risingas the name was called and receiving heartyapplause. The words of welcome to thenew doctors were spoken by Dean Smallwho enlarged upon the importance of thework to be done by the doctors scatteredthroughout the land as well as by thosewho are in the most strategic centers. Thenumbers are now becoming so great thatthe combined activities of this large bodyof trained experts is bound to make a con-.stantly widening impression in the vast field^of research. Referring to the special directory of doctors, not yet published on account of the still soaring cost of printing,but which we may hope for in the near fu^jture, Dean Small said the very list of names^in itself, with the positions held, will make^jan imposing array that will give courage-to the on-coming candidates and just prided!to those whose names are already included,:The most important item of business wascalled out by a report of activities in thedepartment of Psychology made by Mrs.E. S. Robinson (formerly Florence Ella.Richardson, 1908). She described the proposed formation of what may be called thePsychology Section of the Association ofDoctors of Philosophy of the University ofChicago, the purpose of which is, in the firstinstance, to do for the doctors in the department of Psychology what Dean Angell hadbeen doing previous to his departure,namely, cementing them in bonds of closeunions for mutual inspiration and incentivein research and for stimulation in loyaltyto the department and to the University.Following this address by Mrs. Robinson,a statement- was made by the Secretary inwhich he set forth several reasons for rec-OF THE CLASSES AND ASSOCIATIONS 317ommending similar action on the part of allthe departments either independently or incertain well-defined groups. It seems certain that such sectional organizations arebound to increase the sum total of activityand loyalty to the University through thecorresponding increase in the variousgroups. The annual meeting of any suchsection will naturally be in connection withthe corresponding national society. For instance, the proposed Psychology section willmeet with the National Association of Psychologists. This added #attraction and advantage will surely stimulate many to attend their national meetings who otherwisemight find excuse to remain at home.This matter made so definite an appealthat a motion to appoint a committee ofthe Association to consider this whole question and report back was unanimouslyadopted. The committee appointed consisted of H. E. Slaught, R. J. Bonner andMrs. Robinson. The present officers of theAssociation were re-elected.The meeting closed with a rising voteof thanks to the University for its hospitality so generously manifested for the seventeenth consecutive year.The next issue of the Magazine will contain a list of interesting News-Notes collected from the large number of cards returned by members.H.

The fundis to be administered by the University, andloans are to be made at low interest to lawstudents upon recommendation of the lawfaculty.The president was authorized by a unanimous vote to appoint a committee to solicitsubscriptions from all alumni and formerstudents of the law school.

As Jimmy Touhig says,"Byes, byes, 'twas a g-r-r-reat ga-ame!". At the Shanty Ceremonies that followedDean Henry G. Gale, '96, President of theShanties, presided. President Judson spokeon the significance of the Shanty, in thatit stood for simplicity and good-fellowship.Herbert Zimmerman, '01, spoke on behalfof tire Class of 1901, which, on the occasionof its twentieth anniversary, was initiatedinto the Shanty group. John F. Voight, '96,for the Class of 1896, on the occasion of itstwenty-fifth anniversary, told of the University in its early days. The Shanty songand the Alma Mater closed the ceremonies.Chairman Thomas J. Hair, '03, of theAlumni Council, then welcomed the Classof 1921 into the alumni body, Chalmer Mc-Williams, President of the Class, responding and pledging the loyalty of the Classto the University. After the 1921 umbrellawas officially opened, the crowd gave a Chicago yell led by McWilliams, who was the1920-1921 cheer-leader. The Pfcnic followed — a happy, informal affair that, well.glance back again, please, at the frontispiece. The lunch was served in souvenir,maroon-colored baskets. This ended thealumni part of the program, and the crowdwas "turned loose" to visit and, later, toattend the undergraduate Circus.With alumni, undergraduates, and visitors, the Circus was almost overwhelmedby a crowd estimated at over 6,000. The'Main Street" was lighted with coloredlights and flanked with all kinds of booths,sideshows, and special acts. The Big Showincluded Japanese fencing, slack-wire walking, bare-back riding, tumbling and otheracrobatic feats, and a clever assortment ofclown stunts. Three bands kept the musicin the air. By ten-thirty everything hadbeen "sold out," and the evening endedwith an impressive fireworks display orStagg Field.This Reunion was most successful in allaspects. The classes have never shownbetter organization or class spirit. The OldUniversity alumni attended in large numbers. Dr. Thomas W. Goodspeed and theRev. James Goodman represented the Classof 1862; the Class of 1876 had four memberspresent, headed by Dr. John E. Rhodes;Edgar A. Buzzell led the '86 class. Theclasses of '11, '12, '16, and '18 held specialclass dinners and parties in addition to thegeneral Reunion. Throughout the countrymany alumni clubs held gatherings, telegrams and special letters of congratulationbeing received from Dallas, Des Moines,Omaha, Pittsburgh, New York, Baltimore,Tulsa, Kansas City, Boston, Cambridge,Sioux City, Minneapolis, and other cities.AFFAIRS— THE LETTER BOX 321Alumni Affairs(Continued from page 300)Secretary-Treasurer — Charles H.
