MOULTONAssociate Professor of Political Economyin the University of ChicagoThe dependence of our economic and industrial machine upon financialinstitutions has been forcefully demonstrated during recent months.Through the difficult period of deflation, price-readjustment, the financing of foreign trade through institutions organized under the EdgeAct, the financing of crop movements under the Federal Farm LoanSystem, the significance and importance of a well-organized financialsystem has been emphasized again and again.Professor Moulton, of the University of Chicago School of Commerce,who is the author of Current Business, A Weekly Analysis in ChicagoCommerce, examines and interprets for the first time the entire financial structure, the principles which underlie it, and its relation tovarious business units. Previous literature has emphasized only oneaspect of the financial system, such as the commercial bank or theinvestment bank, and, in most cases, has treated the subject-matterpurely from the technical banking point of view. But in Mr. Moulton 'snew book the executive gains a new interpretation of the entirefinancial structure, the interrelation of various types of institutions,and the dependence of modern industrial society upon financial systems.It is hardly too much to say that the entire process of wealth production and distribution is organized on the basis of a monetary unit ofcalculation, called in the United States the "dollar," and worked outthrough the use of financial instruments and agencies.Thebook^is especially adapted to the requirements of schools and colleges wheretraining in finance is recognized to be of primary importance. . Modern business hasits setting in the midst of a financial system upon which it is at all times dependentin manifold ways. The successful business man needs to know not merely therelation of his business to the commercial banking systems; he must also know itsrelation to all of the institutions which make up the financial structure of society,78Q pages, $4.00 net, $4.20 postpaidPurchase from your dealer or directTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRESS5859 Ellis Avenue Chicago, IllinoisUmbersttp of Chicago jlaaajmeEditor and Business Manager, Adolph G.

JULY, 1921 No. 9Almost two months have passed sincethe June Reunion, and in that time variousechoes have been received. In-Reunion variably, the Reunion in generalExpenses was regarded as a great success,although opinions differed, asopinions always do, on minor features.There have been, however, a few complaintson the high cost of attending, enough atleast to justify some explanatory comment.The main complaints were directed againstthe Circus charges. The Circus was not anAlumni Council affair, but was under thecontrol and management of the undergraduates and the Athletics Department, as apart of the entertainment for the alumniand for the visiting Waseda baseball team.The expenses for the Circus were verylarge — in case of rain it would have been atotal loss — and the amount finally realized,we understand, did not result in "exorbitantprofits" to anyone. However, this was apioneering excursion, and should a Circusever again appear on a Reunion program itwill be conducted, as based on the experience of this one, in a way to reduce allcharges to an absolute minimum.As for the alumni features of the Reunion, it must be remembered that this, too,was largely a "case of first impression." Anew type of Reunion was conducted — andwith popular success — and some mistakeswere simply inevitable. This year, furthermore, saw certain unusual expenses leviedfor some permanent Reunion features, suchas class umbrellas and class costumes — expenses which need not be repeated. Evenso, so far as the Alumni Council end of thewhole affair is concerned, the charges wereadjusted to a minimum. It may be worthyof note that for this Reunion, after all collections are in, the alumni organization willhave to meet a deficit of around one thousand dollars. In other words, the Councilcertainly made no money out of the gath ering, but, quite the contrary, sustained alarge loss on it.This, good friends, is not a "kick back."Although deficits are always hard to meet,this one, it is felt, is well worth while. Mostalumni associations at least break even ontheir Reunions; some of them actually makemoney out of their annual gatherings; butChicago has yet to learn how to conduct aReunion without creating a deficit. Ourslogan is, the greatest possible good timefor the smallest possible expense. The mainquestion now is, Was the Reunion generallysuccessful? The answer is, It was. Is Chicago down-hearted? Never!Within very recent years there has developed among universities and collegesthroughout the country someProvincialism tendency to get away fromPassing the 19th century provincialism that characterized mostall of them. Educational institutions, largeand small, are becoming less provincial thanformerly. Exchange professors 'during the.regular school year, wholesale exchanges offaculties during the summer sessions, annualmeetings of professors and of many educational and scientific societies, conventions ofalumni secretaries and of business representatives, fraternity conventions, intersectionalathletic relations, all these are steadily exerting influences which will make collegesand universities look abroad more and moreto "see the good in the other fellows." And,of course, the war proved a tremendous influence in bringing college and universitymen and women together under many andvaried enterprises that resulted in a betterunderstanding and clearer appreciation ofone another.About two months ago an IntercollegiateConference on Undergraduate Governmentwas held at Cambridge, Massachusetts, under the auspices of the Alumni Associationof Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, ChicagoTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEand other institutions, over forty in all,were represented. At the same time a somewhat similar gathering was held at the University of Missouri, at which Chicago alsohad a representative. Thus the undergraduates, aside from athletic interests, havebeen brought to some extent into this fieldof fellowship, understanding, and co-operation.The beginning has been a good one. Letus hope that the "breadth of view" which ispresumably a product of higher educationwill soon be broad enough to include adeeper and better appreciation of one another among all educational institutions. Inthis movement, we are glad to say, Chicagois among the foremost. Being all, so tospeak, passengers in the same boat, it isquite worth while to look around, get acquainted, and share the pleasures with thosewho are likewise enjoying this most interesting trip.* * *This July number of the Magazine closes,rather informally, our alumni activities ofthe present year. When nextFarewell — we greet you — in the NovemberTill Fall number, which starts the newyear — alumni affairs will againbe under way with an effort at still furtheradvance. In this we trust you will takesome part, at least as a subscriber to theMagazine if in no other capacity. If youare not already a member of some Chicagoclub, join the club in your city, take partin, enjoy its activities. If there is no clubnear you, then — why not? Start one! TheMagazine has been able to record markedprogress this year; it wants to write evenbetter history for 1921-1922. We don't care what instrument you play; we'll find roomfor you in the big, happy, harmoniousMaroon band-wagon. . ',This leads us to the question: Is theMagazine itself worth while? Here is apart of its record for the current year nowclosing— judge for yourself. Two specialseries have been presented: "ProminentAlumni," presenting 18 alumni; "View ofOther Universities," presenting 9 institutions, east and west. During the year theMagazine contained 131 photographs andillustrations. There were 14 special articleson educational and other interesting subjects. About 100 "University Notes" wereprinted. There were about 500 personalnotes, and close to 300 notices of marriages,deaths, etc., with a total of around 800 notesin all. Numerous reports told of the largestclub activity in our history; association andother meetings were reported, and manyinteresting letters, from all parts of theworld, were published. There were timelybook notices, and the regular sectionsbringing you information about student,athletics, departmental, and other activities.For the year, your Magazine, improve,d stillfurther in appearance, totaled 368 pages —quite a book in itself, we suggest.The whole point, we confess, is this: Toa real Chicagoan, to one who is loyally interested in and wants to keep in touch withthe University, the Magazine does render avery special, most important service, andfully justifies itself. We only ask that youallow the Magazine to continue to enjoy theunique privilege of keeping you in close andconstant touch with your fellow alumni andwith Alma Mater. Have a good vacation1 —see you next Fall!The Site of Cobb Hall— Just Thirty Years Ago!AFFAIRS 335ALUMNI A F F A I R SChicago Alumni Club First Annual FieldDayThe Chicago Alumni Club held its FirstAnnual Field Day on Wednesday, June 22,at the Olympia Fields Country Club. Overthirty alumni turned out to drive andmashie around the course, and everybodyregarded the event as one of the most enjoyable the Club has ever held. Despite the"kidding" along the way, some good scoreswere turned in.A Shanty group, France Anderson, RalphHamill, Henry Gale, "Teddy" Linn, BrentVaughan, and "Jimmie" Sheldon, conducteda jovial "sick-some," with Teddy andFrance turning in an 86 gross! Frank Coylewon first prize, an umbrella, with an 83gross. W. McCracken took second prize,hair brushes; Linn got third, a pocket-book,(for which, he contended, he had very littleuse) ; and AI Kramer took the booby, acigarette case. The last three had to beplayed off by a series of putting matches.For some of the rounds, the creek-diversreaped a harvest for recovered balls, butall in all the showings were creditable. The19th hole was well surrounded with ginger-ale and iokes.Mr. Stagg was on hand and, after thegolfing, challenged anyone present to amatch at anything from boxing to a hundred yard dash — but there were no takers.An excellent dinner was served in the clubhouse. The Field Day was in charge ofJimmie Sheldon, President, and Ralph W.("Pink") Davis, Secretary of the AlumniClub. Those present were:A. A. Stagg, W. France Anderson, HenryG. Gale, James M. Sheldon, Ralph W. Davis, Charles F. Axelson, Donald Bean, A.T. Goodman, N. R. Elmstrom, J. MacNeish,Hugo M. Friend, Dan W. Ferguson, RalphHobart, Ben Badenoch, Robert S. Harris,T.

Davis,Donald Richberg, and A. G. Pierrot. Several others came in later in the day. Everybody present agreed that the event hadstarted off well as an annual club affair, andvolunteered toward assisting in getting outa very large attendance next year. "Jimmie"and "Pink" were heartily congratulated ontheir successful inauguration of the FieldDay. New Cedar Falls and Waterloo Club, IowaAlumni and former students of the University of Chicago, living in Waterloo andCedar Falls, met at Black's tea room onJune 10th, 1921, and formed an AlumniAssociation. The work of organization waspreceded by a banquet, and during the program which followed, Reno Reeve presided.Officers elected include Reno R. Reeve,'14, J. D. '16, President-, Fred J. Miller, ex,Vice-president, Harriet L. Kidder, Secretary-Treasurer. A number of speeches weregiven expressing warm appreciation of AlmaMater, interest in its new plans, and determination to do all that could be done toward getting students from this vicinity toenter the University. The Secretary was instructed to secure all possible data on financial help for students at Chicago.Singing of University songs and givingvarious college yells put the proper spiritinto the gathering; plans were made for apicnic in August and a rousing meeting inthe fall with a speaker from the Universityif possible.Harriet L. Kidder, A. M. '10,Secretary.Dr. Starr Visits DenverThe presence in Denver, on the 17th ofJune, of Dr. Frederick Starr was the occasion of two very interesting affairs. Underthe management of Mr. Frederick Sass agroup of alumni received Dr. Starr at thetrain and took him immediately for a motortrip over the mountain parks with luncheonat Flying-Horse Inn. At evening he wasentertained at dinner by Mr. and Mrs. Edward William Milligan, who later receivedColorado alumni and alumnae in his honor,at their home.To this group of guests Dr. Starr gavean address inspired by his fresh visit withthe Japanese people. In main his subjectwas an answer to the question "What is thematter with the Asiatics?" The answer issummed up in four points about as follows:The Asiatics are to be criticised for thelow position of woman. She is a drudge,an animal. Domestic life is not ideal inthe Orient.The Asiatics do not sufficiently prizethe fundamental principle of Christiancivilization summed up in the phrase, the-sacredness of human life.The Asiatics are not friends of repub-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINElicanism, that is, equal rights for all andequal opportunities for all.The Asiatic is not an anti-national; heis too loyal to his ruler; he is not enoughof an internationalist.On the other hand, Dr. Starr spoke withwarmth of the friendly feeling entertainedby all Japanese people, high and low, forthe United States, as the only honest nation,and as the one who led them into communication with the world. He says they reachout for territory in Asia merely to maintainplace with European nations which are doing the same, and that as soon as the Western nations cease or give up these claims,Japan will do so, too.That Dr. Starr speaks with perfect authority is undoubted, for he has been received by those in highest authority in Stateand in Religion there. No foreigner is, orhas been, so intimately and widely knownin Japan, or so well-beloved.The immediate occasion of this, his tenth,visit to the Islands, the making of the holypilgrimage to the eighty Sacred Places inthe island of Shikoku, puts Dr. Starr verynear the inner life of these people; in thisconnection there is only occasion here tosay that Dr. Starr cannot open his mouth.but there flows off his fascinating tonguespell-binding information and entertainment born of his intimate acquaintance withthese idealistic and artistic little people.Colorado Alumni and Alumnae present atthis reception were:Messrs. and Mesdames: Frederick Sass,Walter Edward Francis, Victor ErnestKeys, Irwin Magnus Ristine, Eliot Black-welder, John Elvington Nelson, CharlesWeldon Tomlinson, William FolsomSpaulding, George A.

Pierrot,Alumni Council.Dear Mr. Pierrot:Out-of-town business has kept me fromadvising you earlier of the splendid dinnerwe had June 13. Twenty-two Chicagoans and two guests gathered in the banquet hallof the American Annex Hotel at 7 P. M.The tables were placed in a U arrangement.A very, satisfactory meal served to warmthe already congenial spirits of the assembly. Everyone made a short speech, explaining his or her present work and referring more or less facetiously to campusreminiscences. Even the guests enteredinto the idea. After eating, we groupedabout the piano and sang Chicago songsand gave Chicago yells. The outstandingfeature was the spirit displayed by everyone — a happy gladness to be with the restand a thankfulness for an opportunity tojoin with other Chicagoans and talk overold times.Several of those present were additions toour list. Thirty regrets were received byunfortunates who were unable to attend,and they certainly ought to be regretful.Peculiarly, as MacDonald, Felker and myself were leaving the hotel after the othershad gone, we met a '20 man just a few feetfrom the door. He came to town on businessand was here for the one day. After this, wewant to boom things so that when a Chicagoan comes to St. Looie, he'll know thathe can look up some Chicago friends.I expect to be in Chicago next week, atwhich time I hope to talk over some ofour plans. We want to start big this fall.Thanking you for your co-operation, I amiYours very truly,Harry X. Cohn.Tulsa Starts Club OrganizationTulsa, Oklahoma,June 15, 1921.Mr. A. G. Pierrot,Sec, Alumni Council,The University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot: —Last Saturday we held a luncheon forUniversity of Chicago students at the Kennedy Restaurant in Tulsa, and were fortunate in having with us Mr. J. ElmerThomas, '12, who had attended part of thecelebration at Chicago before he came hereand was able to tell us about the goodtimes we were missing in Chicago.I was appointed Temporary Chairman tocall a meeting some time about the firstof October, at which time we hope to effect a definite organization and hold moreor less regular gatherings during the winter months.We received the literature which youmailed us in time for the meeting and appreciated it very much. There were somepresent who had not seen the booklet outlining the new building program. I nowhave a list of forty ex-students, all of whomlive in Tulsa.Cordially yours,Earl A. Trager, '17.AFFAIRS 337Dr. Slosson Addresses Washington ClubWashington, D. C,June 13, 1921.Mr. Harold H. Swift,Chicago, Illinois.Dear Sir:The University of Chicago Alumni Clubof Washington had a good meeting Saturday night at the University Club at whichDr. Slosson delivered an address.We had an election of officers. MajorRobert L. Henry was elected President,Miss Shirley Farr, Vice-President, and MissGertrude VanHoesen, Secretary-Treasurer.All of the officers who were elected havebeen taking considerable interest in the association and I think that the Club is nowon the road to a permanent organization ofsome strength. I am remaining on the Executive Committee and shall be delightedto receive and present any suggestionswhich you may have in the future if it isdeemed advisable by you that they be handled in that manner.It is our plan to have semi-annual meetings of the Club as a whole. In addition tothis, we expect to work out a program ofluncheons. There will be luncheons for themen and luncheons for the women, separately.We attempted to have the Secretary ofState present at our meeting Saturday nightbut he had engagements out of Washingtonwhich prevented. He said he would be gladto receive an invitation from us later andintimated that it would be a pleasure to himto see President Judson at the meeting.Unless our plans are changed, we expectto undertake to have a meeting in the fallsome time when President Judson will bein Washington and can attend, and to thismeeting we will invite the Secretary ofState. If this plan goes across, it will, ofcourse, be the biggest meeting that we haveever had and I think will be of great benefit to the Club.Very truly yours,Connor B. Shaw.Alumni Secretaries' ConventionThe Eighth Convention of the Association of Alumni Secretaries, in. conjunctionwith the Conference of Alumnae Secretaries, and the Annual Meeting of AlumniMagazines Associated, a business organization, was held at Cornell University, Ithaca,New York, May 19, 20, and 21, 1921. A. G.Pierrot, Secretary of the Alumni Counciland Editor of the Magazine, representedChicago at the meetings. Over sixty alumniassociations were represented, includingeastern, middle-western, southern and western institutions. Mr. Pierrot was electedSecretary-Treasurer of Alumni MagazinesAssociated. Among the important matters brought upby special papers and discussion were:Printing Contracts, Alumni Advisory Bodies, Relation of the Alumni Office to theUndergraduate Body, Alumni Representation on College Boards, Alumni Office Organization, and Some Results of AlumniGiving. All of the papers were very interesting and informing, and all present feltthat the Convention was well worth while.It is worth noting that attendance at thesemeetings has convinced the Chicago representative that our problems and difficultiesare quite the same as those of similar organizations, and, further, that in severalways, such as organization, the official publication, clubs, reunions, and membership,our success is quite above the average.The paper, "Some Results of Alumni Giving," in connection with which additionaldata was collected at the convention, revealed that within the last three years alone,from 1918 to 1921, alumni bodies throughout the country had set a goal of $150,000,-000 for their contribution to their institutions, and that of this amount over $100,-000,000 had already been paid in.

The purpose ofthe expedition was to collect material piecing out the results of earlier journeys ratherthan to undertake new investigations. Fouritems, however, stand out rather conspicuously:(a) Several days were spent at Ayabe,studying the Omoto-Kyo, a recent development of Shinto, which is giving the Japanese government some concern. Prof. Starrwas received into one of the student dormitories and had every opportunity to studythe doctrines and practices of the sect. Itis highly mystical and its head claims to beat once the incarnation of the ancient Shintodeities, Buddha and Jesus, (b) The long-planned pilgrimage of the "88 sacred placesLeo Sowerby, Pianist and ComposerMr. Sowerby, who has had distinguishedsuccess with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, appears in recital, Mandel Hall,Friday, August 5.of Shikoku" was carried through. This pilgrimage was laid out eleven hundred yearsago by the famous Kobo Daishi. This greatscholar and priest is a favorite with Prof.Starr and the journey was made out ofrespect to his memory and to come intointimate contact with the island where thesaint was born and lived and in which hismemory is still cherished. The pilgrimageinvolved a journey of a thousand miles andpresented considerable difficulty as manyof the temples are on summits not easy ofaccess. The Shingon priests were every- Mina Hager, ContraltoMiss Hager, of the Chicago Opera Company,will appear in the recital with Mr.Sowerby, on August 5.where most cordial and every opportunitywas given the foreign, non-Buddhist pilgrimto see and learn. Thirty-five days were devoted to this journey. During its course,twenty-six addresses were given by request,upon Buddhist themes, or on internationalrelations, (c) In response to the requestof the Hosso priests, who had the celebration in hand, Prof. Starr attended the celebration of the thirteen hundredth anniversary of the death of Shotoku Taishi, whichtook place at the ancient temple of Horiujifrom April 11 to 17. It was a function ofexceptional interest and significance, (d) Abrief visit was made to Korea, to see theconditions now existing there. This is thefifth time that Prof. Starr has been in thatpeninsula since its absorption by Japan.Having seen the administrations of GeneralTerauchi and of Count Hasegawa, he desired to see that of Baron Saito. Many Koreans were seen and heard and as muchwas learned as the shortness of the timeavailable would permit.In addition to these special items a largeamount of material was gathered aboutMount Fuji, the Fuji-Ko, Japanese toys,Yamabushi, and other subjects already under investigation. Some of this materialwill be used in three public exhibitions thatare planned — of Mount Fuji, of Japanesetoys, and of the early contact between Japanand other countries. On February 12, Lincoln's Birthday, Prof. Starr was the guestof honor at the annual dinner of the University of Chicago Club of Tokyo, made upabout equally of Japanese and Americans.When he left the United States, he intendedto do no public speaking.

Alleh, Ex-'12Perhaps the first woman in the entirecountry to become a judge of a court ofgeneral jurisdiction is Florence E. Allen,ex-'12, (Law). In theelections of last November Florence Allen waselected Judge of theCourt of Common Pleasof Cuyahoga County,Cleveland, Ohio, receiving 116,699 votes, andover 11,000 votes aheadof the second candidateelected; there were tencandidates in all. MissAllen, who is thirty-sixyears of age, took officein January, 1921. Thecourt is a county courtof record of criminal,civil, legal and equitablejurisdiction, and the termof office is six years.Florence Allen, afterreceiving the usual preparatory education, attended Western ReserveUniversity, at Cleveland,from which institutionshe was graduated withhonors in 1904. For threeyears, from 1906 to 1909,she was on the editorialstaff of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, andalso taught school at the Laurel School,Cleveland. During this time she studiedpolitical science at Western Reserve University, receiving the degree of A. M. inthat subject in 1908. She then came to theUniversity of Chicago to study law, attending the Law School in 1909 and 1910. Atthe meeting of our Law School Associationlast February Miss Allen was one of thespeakers, at which time she stated that sheconsidered her work at Chicago to be thereal foundation of her legal career. At thattime, too, she said that she had already triedtwo first degree murder cases, and hadthree similar cases pending.In 1910 Miss Allen accepted a position aslegal investigator for the New York Leaguefor Protection of Immigrants, at New YorkCity. She then continued her legal studiesat the New York University Law School,where she was graduated with honors in1913. Throughout this period she deliveredFlorence E. Allen, Ex-'12a very successful series of lectures on current political history for the New YorkBoard of Education and to New York andPhiladelphia women's clubs.In 1914 Miss Allen returned to Clevelandand was admitted to theOhio Bar. She has beenactively engaged in thegeneral practice of lawthere ever since. TheAssistant Attorney General of the United Statesat Cleveland recentlysaid of her: "Miss Allenis a real lawyer. She hashad large experience inthe preparation and trialof cases in all of theOhio courts, and in myjudgment she has unusual ability."She has appeared insome very importantcases. In 1916, two yearsafter beginning practice,she conducted the EastCleveland municipalwoman suffrage case,arguing the case finallybefore the Ohio SupremeCourt. This case established the right of womento vote in East Cleveland and other local municipalities. In 1918 shewas chosen by the union of street railwayemployees in Cleveland to act as their arbitrator in the case of Yellon vs. The Cleveland Railway Company. She was the firstwoman attorney to appear before the National War Labor Board when, in 1919, sheappeared for the women street car conductors. The chairman of that Board statedthat her presentation was the best presentation of a case ever given before the Board.In the same year Miss Allen was appointedassistant county prosecutor of CuyahogaCounty, being the first woman to hold sucha position in Ohio. She is also the firstwoman to be placed upon the formal program of the Ohio State Bar Association.Miss Allen is a member of the Ohio StateBar Association, of the Cuyahoga Countyr>-- Association, and of the BusinessBarWomen's Club. She has been on the program of five national Woman Suffrage conventions and conferences.ALUMNI 345Keith Preston, '05, Ph.D. '15The "skeletonesque" photograph — so hedescribes it — appearing on this page presents an almost broad-side view of a "youngfeller" who is already quite widely knownas a unique combination of Latin professor,literary critic, poet, editor, and column-conductor. Presumably, at least, universitypeople are book readers, book lovers, andfollowers of book affairs; as such, they frequently glance over the book-review pagesof our daily papers and other publicationsthat pass on the good or bad news to theliterati. One of the best known of suchbook pages in the Middle West is that ofthe Chicago Daily News.And by the way, HarryHansen, '09, formerly editor of this Magazine, andfor some years a foreigncorrespondent for theNews, is now the editorof that page. However,there appears on that interesting page of theNews a clever columnknown as "The Periscope"— and the purpose of thisbrief sketch is to exposeits conductor, Keith Preston, '05, Ph.D. '15.Keith Preston is a Chi-c a g o a n through andthrough. He was born inChicago, September 29,1884, the son of a Chicagobanker. After the usualpreliminary education inthe grades, he attendedthe South Division HighSchool, Chicago, and then,his diploma vouching thathe had "successfully completed," etc., he enteredthe University of Chicagoto still more successfully complete. Keith,always of a scholastic and literary turn ofmind, went in for Latin and Greek and, indue time, came out a Latin instructor.For a number of years, now, he has beenconnected with the Department of Latin ofNorthwestern University, at Evanston, andhe is at present Associate Professor of Latinthere — and, we hear, a most "live" instructor of that dead tongue. But teaching alonecould never confine the activities of so ablea fellow as Keith. That he is keenly andconstantly interested in the special field ofhis profession is sufficiently shown by thefact that he has been, and is, a contributorto various philological journals, and is amember of the American Philological Association, of the Classical Association of theMiddle West and South, and of the ChicagoClassical Club. To this, however, he hasadded varied literary and editorial activities.In addition to conducting the weekly "Periscope," Preston now holds a regulareditorial position with the Daily Neias. Hehas, furthermore, written a number of literary critical essays and sketches for various publications. As a writer of neat andoriginal verse and of clever occasionalcomment he has done his share toward making the late B. L. T.'s daily column in theChicago Tribune so exceptionally interesting and entertaining. Preston is a memberof the Cliff Dwellers, the Chicago literaryand artists Club.Two years ago a book of his verses,"Types of Pan," was published by Houghton-Mifflin Company. The little volume,which was well received, was reviewed inthe July, 1919, number ofthis Magazine. The review was by Richard At-water, '11, ("Riquarius"),who, incidentally, is nowconducting the daily column, "From Pillar toPost," in the ChicagoEvening Post. We maynot have an engineeringschool but we're good atturning out conductors.Until 1915 Keith Preston was listed with us asa Bachelor; he then tookhis Ph.D. degree; but hewent a step further — hegot married. He was married on June 12, 1915, atWestfield, New Jersey, toMiss Etta Shield, ex,whom he met while at theUniversity. Our Quadrangles, you see, sometimes do more than merely furnish an education.Keith says that h i shobby is "conversation" —well, we know he's certainly good at it, and onceyou've heard him you will be glad to visithim again. Of the University he says withsincere pride, "It is my alma mater."Coming back to his noted column, we'lltake advantage of a recent issue and steala peek through his Periscope. Here we go:LOADED FOR LIONSShan Bullock commends the Americanwoman for her "admirable determination tomeet an author fully equipped."As hunters that score suit the ball to theboreAnd temper the load to the lion,Our ladies with lore hunt the BengalTagoreLike Nimrod or nervy Orion.With an author to meet our ladies discreetLoad up on lethiferous matter;All primed and replete they prepare to repeatHis pet intellectual patter.Keith Preston, '05, Ph.D. '15THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEI+- Views of Other UniversitiesThe University of Michiganjhhhbj ifcjiJefei '^Bo'P* -..infillliir >%"> ■The Architecture and Engineering BuildingMichigan's engineering and architecture schooling haslong been noted for its high standard and thoroughness.The Michigan UnionTin's splendid building, serving as a club house anda general gathering place for all Michigan men, thefunds for which, over $1,200,000, were raised byalumni and students, has become the model forsimilar student unions planned as memorials at a number of universities throughout the country.The Ivy-Covered Entrance to the Historic University HallUNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN 347The New LibraryOne of the most notable library buildings inthe country.The University of MichiganThe University of Michigan, one of the oldest of state universities, was founded atAnn Arbor in 1837, although its history traces back to 1817, the starting of a stateuniversity at Detroit.

They were the gift of a Mr. Thompson, the owner and proprietor of the Bre-voort House, one of the best of the Chicagohotels of the day. For a time C. R. Henderson (Dr. Henderson) was the librarian.One day a preparatory student came to thelibrary and told him he had concluded toread the library through while he was taking his course."In athletics the only piece of apparatuswas a single dumb-bell which weighedeighty pounds, and which was kept sometimes in one room and sometimes in another. The only use to which it was putwas to lift it to one's shoulder and then liftit from there as high as the operator's armcould reach. An expert in Indian club exercises came to the neighborhood and theyoung men bought clubs and employed himto teach them. There was a tradition thatsome years before my day, 1868 to 1872,there had been a temporary wooden structuresomewhere on the campus, used for athleticpurposes, but all traces of it had disappeared."W. W. Everts of '67, went to Europeand came back in 1870. He brought withhim from England a game of foot ball,which he taught us, when he entered theSeminary. There was no regular foot ballorganization, and we chose sides everytime we played. Our Marshall Field wasthe vacant lots behind the building of theold Union Theological Seminary, afterwardsthe Baptist Hospital, which you will recollect."Dr. Levering in his 73rd year and at hisrequest has been relieved of mission stationwork and is spending his later days at hishome in the beautiful Blue Hills of India.His address isFrank H.

We had a most delightful tripand as you know, Professor Starr was veryinteresting.He talked freely and he certainly gave usand me, especially, a different view of the"Yellow Peril." You know the "YellowPeril" in Colorado is real, and not merelyan abstraction.(Continued on page 364)349All returns are now in for the season of1920-21, and the undergraduate prayer isthat the like will not be known again. TheMaroons were not up among 'em this year,a status other schools have known, but alarge part of the student population is firmin the belief that never has there been sucha calamity before — never have the mightyfallen as low as this.Coach White won the conference swimming championship, aided by the mightyBlinks and Yegge, Gordon and Jenkins.Coach Hoffer's gymnasium team won, asusual, and as usual, got no credit. PatSegal and Harry Vories retained the conference doubles tennis championship. Andthat's the total of Chicago championshipaccomplishment for the year.Baseball was a terrible fiasco, saved onlyby the two victories in the final games ofthe season. Basketball hopes were high,which only added to the disappointmentcaused by the poor showing. The least saidabout the track season, the better. No one,however, could say that the football seasonwas unsuccessful, despite the two lone conference victories, for the Wisconsin andIllinois games were enough to vindicate anyteam.What Chicago will do in the immediatefuture can fairly be predicted. Mr. Stagghas some fine, football material, and^ unlesssomething unforeseen happens, he will turnout a team that will make them all — Princeton included — play great football to win.There are several promising freshmen intrack, who, with a few good men still left,will make a team that will score morepoints than this season's squad did, butwhich will not be capable of taking verymany meets, and certainly not the conference. The basketball material is not asgood as was this year's, but there is enoughthere to make a good team. To be a winner, however, much coaching will be needed.Edward Blinks will be back, and the swimming team should win again. The baseballteam, of course, will be better.Athletic events since the last issue includethe Intercollegiate golf championship, whichDrake won, Chicago finishing second. Inthe individual play, Capt. Hartman of Chicago lost to McKee of Drake, after 39 holesof fine play at Indian Hill. In the NationalIntercollegiate track meet, held June 18 onStagg Field, in which teams from everysection of the country participated, Redmonscored five points for Chicago by winningthe hammer throw, with 139 feet, plus.

The growth since its organizationhas been constant and the opportunities forgood have continually expanded. But wewant for it the maximum of growth in theyears to come and this can be attained onlythrough the fullest cooperation of all members. Of the eighteen hundred students whoclaim the School of Education as the homeof their mental development, an encouragingly large percentage has already enrolledin our very important organization. All ofthese men and women must be reached asspeedily as possible.Accordingly it should be our ambitionduring the coming year to reach theseAlumni and prove to them the value ofmembership in the organization. To bereally successful in this, we must make theAlumni Association of the School of Education so thoroughly alive and useful that allour graduates and students will feel verystrongly the propriety and the need of belonging to it. An enthusiastic membershipin cooperation with an earnest AlumniCommittee which has been giving wholehearted service to our cause will accomplishthis end.The Association has been organized primarily to serve its members, and each member should feel a part ownership in it. Thewelfare of the Association is his welfareand the success of the Association is hissuccess. The University of Chicago Magazine, a subscription to which is given witheach membership, should be the propertyof everyone interested in the school thathas served his educational needs. Thismagazine is a splendid medium for thetransmission of news concerning the activities of the University and renders greatassistance to our Alumni. May those of uswho are attempting to guide the Associationfor the coming year ask of all graduatesand students of the School of Educationhearty cooperation and real support in orderto assure a brilliant future for the Association?William E.

Its purposes are, in part, to encourage graduate research work amongwomen, to foster a professional spirit andthe highest standard of scholarship, and toformulate a conception of education adaptedto women.The twenty-eight charter members of theLambda chapter, the first five of whomwere the organizers of the local chapter,are as follows: Jessie Duboc, GertrudeEaton, Esther Learner, Elizabeth Breune,Mary Owen, Mabel Ducker, Emma KateArmstrong, M. Ethel Brown, Jessie Cline,Eva Colby, Helen Cooke, Maude Davis,Lillian Engelsen, Ida Fisher, MarjorieHardy, Adah Hess, Carolyn Hoefer, MarieJensen, Delia Kibbe, Elma and GertrudeKohnhorst, Mary Ledbetter, Bonnie Mellin-ger, Louise Putzke, May Smith, NancyTrompen, Kate Vick and Agnes Yutzey.The members of the fraternity have volunteered their services in connection withseveral enterprises which are being carriedon by the School of Education during thesummer quarter. Together with membersof Phi Delta Kappa they supplied valuableinformation to incoming students this June.Phi Delta Kappa Annual Address andBanquetThe annual address before Phi DeltaKappa was given June the tenth in HarperMemorial Assembly Hall by Dr. George A.Works of Cornell University. The meetingwas open not only to members of the fraternity, but to other interested students ofeducation as well. Dr. Works is serving asChairman of the General Committee whichis in charge of the school survey now being conducted in New York State. In hisofficial relations to the survey, he has acquired an intimate acquaintance with someof the outstanding problems thus far revealed.The address was primarily a discussionof the need for a new type of" administrativeschool unit, based upon social and economicrelations rather than purely political onesAccording to the plan which Dr. Worksdiscussed, the old-time district school mustin many cases remain as the only workableunit. In other cases, several districts shouldbe merged to form a larger unit, based primarily upon the possibility of bringing high-school facilities into organic connectionwith each of them, thus affording such opportunities to a maximum number of ruralchildren. This merging process should takeOF EDUCATION 351place in connection with those districtswhich are grouped about a town or smallcity which is supplied with high-school facilities, and which is the natural trading centerof the districts concerned. In this connection,adequate means of transportation are veryimportant. Each district thus becomes attached to a unit which is organically sound.Social, trade and transportational relationslend common interests, thus insuring amore certain assumption of common obligations.According to this plan each county contributes one or more of these larger units,or, in some cases, some of its districts maybe merged with those of a neighboringcounty. The essential fact is that the unitsformed make a genuinely sound educationaladministrative unit, supplied with both elementary and high-school facilities. Overeach of the larger units thus developed acompetent and adequately trained supervisor should be placed, thus again insuringa closer organization throughout the' groupof schools concerned.Such a plan, if developed and put intooperation, suggests an interesting solutionto the problems of rural education. Dr.Works's discussion was both interestingand stimulating.Following the address the annual banquetwas held in the Gladstone Hotel. Aboutsixty members and friends attended, renewing old acquaintances and making newones. Following the banquet, Dr. Judd, inhis characteristically humorous manner,acted as toastmaster. He introduced Mr.Abel J. McAllister, the national secretary,who brought greetings from the nationalcouncil; Dr. Freeman, who expounded aseries of mental tests as applied to PhiDelta Kappa, and Professor Morrison, whospoke on "Problem Cases in Education."Dr. Works, as one of the guests of theevening, responded in a pleasing and instructive manner to the suggestion that he"say a few words." Mr. Wager then reada letter bearing greetings from the nationalpresident, Dr. Gray, who was unable toattend the banquet. The members wereurged to aid in an effort to make the fraternity wield a genuinely helpful influencein the professional life of the School of Education.It is planned during the Summer Quarterto hold at least two open meetings at whichaddresses shall be given by educators ofnote. The regular fraternity meetings willdeal in serious fashion with educationalproblems.Summer QuarterFormer students of the School of Education will be interested to learn of the verylarge increase in attendance during theFirst Term of the Summer Quarter. OnJune 29, there were approximately 500 more graduate and undergraduate students in theSchool of Education than were registeredat this time last year. The registration isalso about 250 more than during the FirstTerm of the Summer Quarter, 1916, whichwas the banner year before the war. It isneedless to say that our classrooms aretaxed to the capacity and that the halls arevery crowded. Nevertheless, the finest spiritprevails and we feel confident that this willbe our most successful summer in everyway.A general reception to students in theSchool of Education was held in ScammonGardens on Thursday evening, June 23.The reception was very largely attended. Itprovided an excellent opportunity for thestudents to become acquainted with theirinstructors and with each other.Owing to the fact that evening conferences by different groups of students haveproved so successful in the past, ProfessorTryon has organized an unusually attractive program of events this summer. Thereare meetings each week by the followinggroups of students: city superintendents,junior and senior high-school principals,elementary-school principals and supervisors, kindergarten-primary teachers andsupervisors, home economics teachers andsupervisors, art teachers and supervisors.Each conference lasts one hour in orderto give students sufficient time to pursuetheir studies during a major part of theevening. Thus far, the conferences havebeen so largely attended that all who camewere not able to get in. These educationalconferences have been carried on for severalyears and have become a permanent partof our summer program.Alumni on Summer FacultyIn order to provide a sufficient numberof courses for the large" numDer which wasanticipated in the School of Education,forty-seven visiting instructors were secured. Of this number, approximatelythirty-three have taken degrees in theSchool of Education or have attended theUniversity for a considerable time.

For the purpose of making known some of these functions members of the School of EducationAlumni Association in Chicago this summerand students enrolled in the Department ofEducation had a picnic supper in Scam-mons Garden Friday evening, July 8.Mr. W. E. McVey, President of theSchool of Education Alumni Association,opened the program with a few introductory remarks announcing the purpose of themeeting. Dr. Butler, Dean of UniversityCollege, discussed briefly the types of activities possible in the organization of AlumniClubs. Miss Laura Johnston, Director ofthe Training School at Oshkosh, Wisconsin,spoke briefly upon the value, in the buildingof our careers, of the outstanding outcomesof our attendance at the University. Mr.Woodburn, President of the State NormaiSchool at Spearfish, South Dakota, spokeof the service which teachers attendingsummer school and meeting socially thosewho have the same interests could performfor their students by giving to them "waterfrom the running stream rather than thestagnant pool." The desire of the facultyto meet individually students of the Department of Education was the keynote of thetalk given by Dr. Judd. The program closedwith several musical selections given by theThornton Township High School Orchestra.It is hoped that this innovation of bringing together the alumni and students of theSummer School will result in a greater interest in our Alumni Association and AlmaMater. Our goal can never be reached until not only every graduate but every personwho has enrolled in the Department of Education has become a member of the AlumniAssociation.NOTICES 353Six Lectures on Architecture, By RalphAdams Cram, Thomas Hastings and ClaudeF.

Beginnings of Gothic ArtLecture II. Culmination of Gothic ArchitectureLecture III. Principles of ArchitecturalCompositionLecture IV. Modern ArchitectureLecture V. Organic ArchitectureLecture VI. The Language of FormThese lectures were delivered at the ArtInstitute in 1915.(Forty-five illustrations. Royal octavo,x-j-172 pages.)"The Cost of Dying"Dr. Graham Taylor, in his foreword to anew volume just published by the University Press under the title of "Funeral Man agement and Costs," says that "this uniqueinvestigation is a journey of discovery alongthe border line between life and death. Ittraverses a no-man's-land which almost allof us in America must orient for ourselves,as one by one, or family by family, the living carry the dead across it." The book isa popular presentation of a subject whichhas been scientifically investigated, anddeals frankly with funeral extavagances andcemetery profiteering.Case-studies are given of last-sicknesscosts, the expense of mourning apparel, andof burial among the poor. Undertakingcharges and transportation are discussed atlength. The Census Bureau, the authorsays, estimates that 2,000,000 deaths occurannually in the United States. On thebasis of an average expense of $150 for individual funeral and burial, exclusive ofgraves, tombs, monuments and last-sicknesscosts, the total undertaking bill yearly forAmerica would be $136,000,000.Among the chapters of special interestare those on cemetery management, themonument and mausoleum, trade, burial inother countries and the advantages of cremation.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OFTHE CLASSESAND ASSOCIATIONSAlumni Council Quarterly MeetingThe fourth regular quarterly meeting ofthe Alumni Council for 1920-1921 was heldin the Alumni Office on Tuesday, July 19,at 8 p. m. Present: Thomas J. Hair, chairman; Charles F. Axelson, Chester S. Bell,Elizabeth Bredin, Scott Brown,. Grace A.Coulter, Henry C. Cowles, Ralph W. Davis,Charles S. Eaton, Agnes C. Gale, Henry G.Gale, Alice Greenacre, Emery B. Jackson,R. L. Lyman, W. H. Lyman, Charles F.McElroy, Frank McNair, Margaret V. Monroe, Howell W. Murray, Helen Norris, PaulS. Russell, Harold H. Swift and A. G.Pierrot, secretary. Representing the C andA alumni, Frank E. Weakly and Andrew E.Wigeland.The regular financial reports for theCouncil and for the Alumni Fund were presented, discussed in detail, and adopted. Asto investments of Alumni Fund sums accumulated, it was voted that, in view of thegenerally favorable situation, the policy ofinvesting sueh sums in United States government bonds be continued. Two directorsof the Fund, to fill the expired one-yearterms of last year, and for the full term offour years, were elected as follows: Fromthe Alumni Council, Elizabeth Faulkner, '85;from subscribers, not members of theCouncil, Frederick A. Speik, '05, M. D. '07.The report of the special committee, William H. Lyman, chairman, on the petitionof the School of Commerce and Administration alumni for a separate alumni association under the By-Laws of the AlumniCouncil was presented, favoring the organization of such an association. The Council,by unanimous vote, granted the petitionupon the recommendation of the committee,and Chairman Hair then extended the congratulations and good wishes of the Councilto the C and A alumni representativespresent.The Reunion and reunion finances werereviewed, and suggestions made for improving the organization for future reunions.There were informal reports from the several Standing Committees, and a report fromthe secretary on the Convention of AlumniSecretaries at Cornell, the main features ofwhich report are presented on another pagein this number. After further discussion ofsome office details and some general alumnimatters, the meeting, which was a most interesting one, adjourned at 10:30 p. m. A New Alumni Association — Best Wishes!As a result of the action of the AlumniCouncil at the July meeting, noted in thereport of that meeting on this page, a newalumni association — The School of Commerce and Administration Alumni Association — now joins the five alumni associationsalready organized in the furtherance of ouralumni affairs. A petition for such an association was presented at the April meetingof the Council, at which time a committeewas appointed, as usual, to examine into thespecial fitness and desirability for such anassociation. The report, which was the result of full and careful investigation, showedthat the "C and A" alumni were very eagerto have such an organization formed andthat the prospects of a successful organization were unusually bright.The graduates and former students of theSchool of Commerce and Administration aremen and women who, as a rule, are equippedby nature, as well as trained, along lines oforganization, co-operation, and constructiveachievement. Already they have built up astrong, loyal, coherent and active group.With characteristic energy they will, nodoubt, take hold of the opportunities nowafforded, and in a comparatively short timebuild up one of our strongest associations.Indeed, it may not be long before they willsurpass some of the older but less aggressiveassociations, and prove one of the mainstaysof our general alumni body. Their entry,indeed, may well result in a fine, spiritedrivalry between the various associations, theoutcome of which will not only strengtheneach contesting association but also thealumni organization as a whole.On behalf of the Alumni Council, of thefive associations already in the field, and ofthe Magazine, we extend them a most heartywelcome and sincere best wishes for conspicuous success. In the November numbertheir head officers and delegates to theCouncil will be regularlv listed, and anarticle concerning the new association, itsaims and purposes, will be published. Weare sure that all readers of the Magazinewill be greatly interested to learn moreabout our new fellow-workers and that theylikewise, extend best wishes.

Civilization's GreatestAchievementSome Eskimos were brought down toEdmonton, Alberta, on official business.They had never before been south of theArctic Circle.They had never seen a street, a town, awindow, or a wooden door. A bed, a watertap, and an electric light produced completelynew sensations. Street cars were unknownto them; telephones unheard of; trains not tobe believed ever, when beheld.They had never seen an automobile untilsomeone took them riding in one. They hadnever set their eyes on an airplane until someone did his most daring stunts in one to thrillthem. They had never even seen a movie!But what do you suppose moved them mostin the whole bag of tricks which civilizationproduced for their amusement and amazement?What seemed to them the greatest wonderof all?The cold storage plants !The White Man didn't always have tohunt and fish when he wanted to eat !Here was civilization's greatest gift, itsgreatest benefaction.This feature of civilization makes it possible forSwift & Company, in the season of over production,to store a supply of food for distribution in the seasonof scant, or non-production.
