In attendance, in theaccumulation of endowment funds, and in the development of materialequipment it has made notable progress. University of Chicago alumniknow this and are proud of it.A fact that is not so generally known is that the publication businessof the University of Chicago Press has kept pace with the growth of therest of the University. Its remarkable development in the last seven yearsis shown by the chart above. Taking the business of 1914-15 as a basis ofcalculation, it shows nearly 400 per cent increase.

MARCH, 1922 No. 6It is obvious to all familiar with the facts— which group includes the guards at thegates — that the present Sta-The Stadium dium and the entire seatingProblem capacity on Stagg Field isnow most inadequate to meetthe demands for seats at the larger footballgames. Princeton plays Chicago on StaggField next fall and, judging from past experience and from present preliminary requests for tickets, that game might well bewitnessed by some 75,000 people if therewere accommodations for that number. Theother big home games on the schedule —Illinois and Wisconsin — would likewise drawcrowds far larger than can at present witness such contests on Stagg Field. Andthis demand for seats is rapidly increasingeach year. Of course, if nothing is done, itmay not be long before the present capacitywill not accommodate the students andalumni of the contesting universities eventhough the general public be entirely excluded.As the situation is at present, any plan ofmaterially increasing the capacity of StaggField beyond the 31,000 it now accommodates has been found impractical. It is nowproposed, however, that, for the largergames, the contests be held in the newGrant Park Stadium, to be erected withina couple years downtown. The only alternative, it has been noted, is to build a newStadium somewhere near the Universitywhich would be used solely for Universitypurposes.The Magazine will be glad to receive expressions of opinion from alumni on thiswhole question. Should the proposed GrantPark municipal stadium be used, or shoulda new University of Chicago Stadium be erected? If the latter, where should such anew stadium be located? How should it befinanced? Many of our readers must surelyhave sound opinions and helpful suggestionson this matter. Now is the time to expressthem. Please let us hear from you.* * *Notices have been appearing in the Magazine of the School of Education AnnualAlumni Reunion and Dinner toSchool of be held Friday, May 12, in IdaEducation Noyes Hall. This is the secondReunion big annual reunion of our Schoolof Education alumni to be heldin May. Many of our good folks, perhaps,may wonder why this Association holds itsmain annual assembly in May rather thanin June when all other alumni gather forReunion. The reason is simply this: Practically all members of that Association areengaged in teaching or other educationalwork; everybody knows that in June allteachers must necessarily be exceptionallybusy with the final examinations, graduations, reunions, and other affairs and detailsthat always come at every educational institution, whether high school, college, oruniversity, at the end of the school year;and, consequently, if a really large and representative gathering of the members of theSchool of Education Association is to beheld it must be held at a time when themembers can best attend. Experience hasdemonstrated that the month of May iswithout question the best time for thatgroup, and, for Chicago in particular, at thetime of our Spring Conference of SecondarySchools — this year May 12.Undoubtedly a goodly number of thesealumni will be present, as usual, at our JuneReunion — many of them, indeed, attend both205THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEgatherings when possible — but you can becertain that at their coming May gatheringthe School of Education alumni will be present in hundreds. There is no group ofalumni more loyal to Chicago, more readyto advance her interests and welfare, thanour School of Education group. Their Association, scarcely three years old, is alreadyone of our largest, most active and mostenthusiastic alumni organizations. And theydon't do things by halves — everything theyattempt they "put over big," as an alumniofficer rightly noted. If you want to see a"live," hearty, enthusiastic Chicago crowd,just drop around to Ida Noyes Hall onMay 12th.We gladly take this opportunity to supplement the letters of that Association inmost cordially inviting all of their alumnito be present. A most interesting programhas been arranged, a program that allattending will thoroughly enjoy. To theSchool of Education Alumni Association —our best wishes for your "greatest Reunionyet"!* * *Who says there is "absolutely no classspirit" at Chicago? Certainly nobody whohas taken the trouble to investigate4CClass fully. The Quarter System, theSpirit" allurements of the city, the Juniorand Senior colleges, the graduateand professional schools, all these andothers have been picked on, not merely as'"causes" but sometimes even as "proofs"that there is absolutely no class spirit atChicago. It is true that Chicago does nothave the closeness of class contacts — andmedieval impacts — that are found in a number of schools that "go in for that sort ofthing" on a rather theatrical scale. Nordoes Chicago pretend that it has the sameclass-system developments that are presentin institutions with over a century of tradition and stimulation behind them — any morethan Harvard, for example, should pretendthat its traditions, the oldest in America, areas long-standing and as venerable as thoseof ( >xford. And even in the oldest Americaninstitutions, it should be noted incidentally,especially in those that have outgrown thetown-pump stage and become great universities, it really requires a great amountof machinery and effort to keep the classesgoing as they would like to have them go. They don't always develop automatically orspontaneously. However, to say that Chicago is completely lacking in class spirit isdecidedly straying from the truth.One really sound test of the presence ofsuch spirit can be made after students havebecome alumni. If, after students becomealumni, after they have scattered and manynatural and inevitable disintegrating influences have intervened, they show no classspirit whatsoever, one can fairly concludethat it does not exist. Now, anyone doubting its existence among Chicago alumniought to attend one of the several gatherings of the class secretaries that are heldeach year in preparation for the June Reunion. He will then learn how increasinglystrong and enthusiastic that spirit has become. Some of our classes, happening todislike the general program as announced,have actually revolted and held a reunion oftheir own. In fact, one of the problems ofeach Reunion Committee is that of arranging a program that will fit in with whatsome of the classes want to do. Isn't thatreal class spirit?Furthermore — how do you account forthis: '9 7 is going to have a really great classdinner to celebrate its 25th anniversary; theclass of '02 is making preparations for arepresentative 20th anniversary gathering;'07, for its 15th, has already worked out adefinite class program. And look at 1912:For their 10th reunion they have heard fromalumni, some two to live in each case, whoare coming in from the following states —Montana, Texas, Oregon, Maine, New York,Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Alichigan, Missouriand Kansas; and a large number are coming "home" from various parts of Illinois,Wisconsin and Indiana. Xow, who on earthwould travel thusly if he had no class spirit?Will somebody please explain it?Remember the class umbrellas and the bigparade last year? Well, folks, we know thatChicago alumni have real class spirit. Butthe main point, for you and me, is this:Our June Reunions give us all the one bigchance to prove publicly that we have it.and have it in abundance. This year — everyyear — let's remember that. Let's "show'em"! Keep in touch with your class officers —prepare now to join the parade. Wemust surpass the fine showing of 1921. So,pick ui> the bat, you classes — knock out ah« mie-run !AFFAIRS 207ALUMNINotice of Cleveland MeetingAll Alumni and AlumnaeWelcome!All alumni and alumnae in or near Cleveland — or visiting thereabouts — in fact allalumni and alumnae anywhere are mostcordially invited by the University of Chicago Club of Cleveland to attend their biggathering on Saturday, April 22nd, in theRainbow Room of the Winton Hotel, at6:30 p. m.

There were sixty-three present, and every one had a fine, sociable time.Mrs. Frank Vanderlip (Narcissa Cox, '03)was the guest of honor; just returned fromabroad. She gave an interesting and enlightening talk on the present student situation in Middle Europe. She spoke, also,about the League of Women Voters, andits value as an organization, and then onthe Duell Bill, the Enabling Act for theSheppard-Towner Federal Bill which waspending at Albany. The luncheon passed aresolution endorsing this bill.Dr. Von Klenze (Henrietta K. Becker,'00, Ph. D. '03) spoke for a few momentson the dearth of periodicals in Germany,and suggested that those present send anyrecent copies to the American Institute inBerlin from which place they would be welldistributed.Election of officers followed.

Wayman, '03.Vice-President, Kate Miller, '02.Secretary-Treasurer, Helene Pollak Gans,'14.Members of Executive Committee, GraceBarker, '07, and Thyrsa Barton Dean, '07.Discussion over the name of the club followed, and this precipitated a lengthy argument regarding the necessity of forming aseparate women's organization. We finallyvoted to adopt the name, "The New YorkAlumnae Club of the University of Chicago," and the constitution as suggested inthe pamphlet sent out by the home office.Dues of $1.00 a year were voted, and aftera short social hour the meeting adjourned.We feel that an organization with realpossibilities 'has been started, as there wasa great deal of enthusiasm, and some littleinterest in future activities displayed.

Twenty were present, and the occasion proved very enjoyable. Several members spoke reminiscently of their life at Chi-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcago and of the professors they had known.Copies of the Alumni magazine, the DailyMaroon and of other material of interestfrom the "Varsity" were distributed and letters were read from Chicago alumni in surrounding towns who wished to be affiliatedwith the Club. At a short business meetingthe Club agreed to present a copy of the1921 Cap and Gown to each of the two highschools of Cedar Falls and of Waterloo. Thetreasurer was directed to collect the money.Before adjourning, the Club "practised up"on Alma Mater, Maroon, Maroon, and anumber of other University songs.Harriet L.

But we really were sorryfor the boys who couldn't come. Too manyof them presiding at "Father and Son" gatherings that night of February 17th, for acity- wide campaign was on. But that's getting ahead of the tale.The "Grand ( >ld Man" arrived in Detroiton an early morning train and Charlton T.Beck, chairman of arrangements, at oncestarted the stir by letting press representatives see Stagg before his breakfast wasover. But Beck had to do that. He hadalready handed out "dope," and those eagerpress chaps were just eating it up. Thenthat chairman announced a schedule of threespeeches — count 'em — at High Schools.Those were real events — those HighSchool speeches. At one school, twelvehundred boys; another, one thousand; andthe third, nearly as many, about three thousand in .all. Stagg said nary a word aboutthe university and her athletes. But howthose fine young fellows did listen to his"straight-from-the-shoulder" talks a b o u t"putting in everything you've got" whetheron the playing field or in the big game aftercollege. He made a great hit. The boyscheered. Principals nodded and smiled theirapproval and afterward two declared "that'sabout the best character talk we've hadyet."A luncheon at the Detroit Club had beenarranged for some of the older Yale andChicago men by Charles Sumner Pike, whoduring the afternoon showed our guest oneof our golf courses .and some of the othersights about town.In tin- evening al ihe Fort Shelby Hotel,the men of our Club (note how partial wewere), had the rare delight of sitting downto dinner with Stagg. There were a fewwho had been out for the first lime in theyoung life of our Club, ami after introductions, we had some of the old songs andthen the chairman of the evening, Charles S. Pike, '96, before calling on "Lonnie" ashe affectionately termed him, read the following doggerel which he had composed:'Way Back in '94"He shook the hand that shook the hand ofSullivan."Some men achieve to greatness by daringdeeds of might,And some acquire glory by what they say orwrite,And some do this and others that, to winfrom Fame's small store —And we— we caught Alonzo Stagg 'way backin '94!Not all can be a great John D, a Ford orfamed T.

And the "OldMan" at least acted as if he enjoyed it andwas wreathed in smiles when he began tospeak to us. Then we just sat there for anhour while he told us the inside of much ofthe athletic situation, particularly of lastyear. It was good indeed to get so intimatea recital leading up to the Princeton game,and so we sat and asked questions and wereanswered and thus had a great good time.The bonds between all of us were strengthened.After the meeting, when all but two orthree had gone, an old song was struck upon the piano. Stagg joined in heartily.(Continued on page 225)FUND REPORT snALUMNI FUND REPORTi•4Put into figures the Alumni Fund on April 1, 1922, makes the following exhibit:Number AmountLife Memberships 644 $ 32,200.00Sustaining Memberships 114 23,600.00Endowment Memberships 24 52,500.00Total Subscribed 782 $108,300.00* * * * *Amount Paid in Cash and Bonds $ 65,715.84Bonds Received (97) $17,050.00Bonds Purchased 53,000.00Total Investment in Bonds (Par Value) $70,050.00Amount now available for investment $1,867.95:(: * $ ~\- *Present Yearly Interest (Income) $2,975.27Charge on Fund — 782 Subscriptions at $2.00 each $1,564.00Charge on Fund 1921-1922 in place of U. of C.

In anticipation of a rise, which has since occurred, in the price of thelong-time Government issues, all of the short-time bonds were some time ago sold andthe proceeds reinvested in long-time bonds which represents a considerable saving tothe Fund.The creation of this Alumni Fund has to date accomplished certain definite things,to-wit: It has given to the Alumni Association, which before has led a hand-to-mouthfinancial existence, a substantial sum of money and pledges which insure the permanencyof the Association and the Magazine. It has relieved the University of a portion of asubsidy, of which the University is pleased to be relieved at a time when close figuringis necessary, and it will doubtless be possible and advisable, shortly, to lift from theUniversity the burden of the remaining subsidy to the Association. A UniversityAssociation of the size of ours could with proper pride scarcely do less than stand on itsown feet, to say nothing of doing something constructive for the University. It is nowpossible to give thought to constructive use of the residue of the interest from the Fund.Subscribers to the Fund can further cooperate by prompt payment of their subscriptions, thereby helping to create a substantial surplus at an early date.The Fund is open at all times for subscriptions, and all alumni are urged to take outsuch membership as they can afford as soon as possible. Every membership-subscription willbe welcome and helpful, and most deeply appreciated by the Alumni Council. It is clear thatthis Fund can render great and constant service to the Lmiversity and to the AlumniAssociation.Frank McNair, '03,Chairman, Alumni Fund Directors.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE* "Anybody's Girl"The Blackfriars 1922 Show *Bartlett Cormack, '22,Bartlett Cormack, '22, author of this year's Blackfriars play, "Anybody's Girl," entered the Universityfrom University High School. He has been activein campus dramatic and literary affairs and is atpresent dramatic editor of the Daily Maroon. Hewas in the cast of the J 9 IS Blackfriars show, "AMyth in Mandel." Besides working on Chicagonewspapers, Cormack has published short stories invarious magazines. His play, "Anybody's Girl," isconsidered one of the best ever submitted for Blackfriars production.Who Is She?"Who is Anybody's Girl?" is the teaserwith which Blackfriars is whetting interestin its next — the eighteenth — show, "Anybody's Girl," to be presented in MandelJ fall, Friday and Saturday, May 5, 6, 12,and 13. Bartlett Cormack, '22, wrote thebook and lyrics of the play, and the score isthe work of Ranstead, Hatch, Engle, Rob-bins, and Rivers. It will gratify old Blackfriars and alumni of the University to learnthat Hamilton Coleman is again staging theshow. (A biography of Mr. Coleman appears elsewhere in this number.) Innovations This YearThis is a year of innovations for Blackfriars. After last year's show, the new staffmet with Mr. Coleman and some potentialplaywrights and decided that it was timeto break away from the typical "collegeshow" and bend the energies of the Ordertoward securing and producing a new typeof musical comedy that would be entertainment and yet be different from anythingever attempted by Friars, and different, too,from the musical comedy always on tapwithin the Loop. The contest for a playwas held earlier than usual, and the bookand lyrics of "Anybody's Girl," chosen fromfourteen librettos submitted, were ready andthe staff had swung into action on the production four months sooner than ever before. Then a student orchestra, to replacethe professionals, was organized, equipped,and trained; and the scenery was designedand built by students — radical steps taken,Abbott Holloway explains, "to further theOrder's aim of making every productionmore representative of student talent andenergy in every department of the theatre."The student orchestra recently gave a freeconcert with great success, and it will bethe equal of any previous professional orchestra that has played for the Blackfriars.The scenery, in design and appearance, isthe most attractive ever presented at theseshows.New Type of Play — Three ScenesAs to the play, Mr. Coleman has said thatit will set a fresh and higher standard ofexcellence for professional, as well as undergraduate, musical comedy. Author, producer, and staff are reticent about the storyof the pla>'. It appears, however, that thereare three scenes (another innovation), andthat its material is satire and sentiment.One thing is certain, however: it is not a"rah-rah" college play. Among the cast isa newspaper reporter cursed with temperament and a desire for Romance as it was ina more idyllic age; "Anybody's Girl" herself; a waiter and his young son, a caddy; aBLACKFRIARS 1922 SHOW 213newspaper photographer whose liquor islove; and various representatives of the agileyounger generation.Actually a Plot" 'Anybody's Girl' is frankly an experiment, " Cormack says. "It spars with anidea or two, but its goal is entertainment,not a yawn. It makes fun of a lot of things,including itself, principally the newspaperbusiness and the cult of 'the young moderns.' Its story is definite — it has a plot!The songs have great variety; there are, Ibelieve, almost all sorts of musical numbers — patter stuff, duets, a sextet, topicalsongs (the Gilbert and Sullivan kind), etc."Some of the LyricsSome of the lyrics are "The Tum-TumCafe," "The Open Road," "It's Just Imagination, Nothing More," "Vagabondia,""The Love Complex," "We'll Tell theWorld," "Circe of Wall Street," "CinderellaGirl," "You've Got to Have a Girl," "It's aDarn Bad Sign," and " T and 'Love' and'You.' "In addition to the four regular eveningperformances, there will be matinees on theSaturdays of May 6 and 13, making six performances in all. "Sold Out" houses arenow in prospect and the alumni who desire Robert McDonald, '24, in a leading part —"Jane Brown"to see the play are urged to get in theirreservations as early as possible..

IAmong the tasks the Oriental Institute ofthe University has set itself is the compilation of a new Assyrian dictionary. Havingmade this announcement, I pause to let thereader put this question: "What is an Assyrian dictionary and why a new one?" In myendeavor to answer his query I shall saysomething about the past of Assyrian lexicography before discussing the "why" and"how" of our venture into this field.Assyriology, the study of the literary — andother — remains of the ancient civilization ofthe Tigris-Euphrates Valley, is a youngscience. The decipherment of the cuneiform was accomplished only a little overseventy years ago. To uncover Nineveh andBabylon — what a fascinating task for thoseinterested in Biblical and secular ancient history! The excavation of the first of thesecapitals brought to light the Seven Tabletsof Creation and the Babylonian account ofthe Deluge. (This was during the 70's of thelast century.) The enthusiasm to dig upcities far outran the ability to decipher theliterary documents discovered. It was notuntil 18D6 that a complete Assyrian dictionary was issued. And Delitzsch's AssyrischcsHandwortcrbuch remains the only philolog-ically reliable lexicon that can be placed inthe hands of the student. 1905 saw the completion of A Concise Dictionary of the Assyrian Language, Part I of which had appearedin 1894. Most of this lexicon was compiledat the University where the editor, W. Muss-Arnolt, served in different capacities. Thelatest Assyrian dictionary is thus approaching the end of its second decade of usefulness.Meanwhile each year has seen the publication of volume after volume of cuneiformtexts. Now copying a cuneiform text is asimple matter compared with translating it.When one bears in mind that whole categories of documents — astronomical, medical,business and legal, to mention the outstanding ones — were but slightly understood orstill unknown when Delitzsch and Muss-Arnolt compiled their dictionaries, the reason for the translator's inability to keep pacewith the copyist becomes obvious. Duringthe last decade it has become customary toappend partial or complete glossaries to volumes of translations. At best this is a makeshift, and 1 am sure that there is no oneacquainted with the field of Assyriology butfeeds the urgenl need of a new lexicon.Delitzsch is past seventy and has retiredfrom his post at Berlin, so we cannot expecthis long promised revision ot" his Hand- worterbuch ever to appear. Bezold of Heidelberg began gathering "Zettel" for anAssyrian dictionary before the War, but itwill be a long time before such a work canbe completed in Germany.And so we have undertaken the work atthe LTniversity, not because we possess anyspecial qualifications for the task, but ratherbecause we felt that we could create andmaintain the machinery which is required.For an Assyrian dictionary is no longer aone man job. No man can cover the wholeheld; and if he could, from the side ofknowledge, the mechanical difficulties of collecting and arranging all the materials whichmust be consulted would be insurmountable.In the basement of Haskell there has beenfitted up a large workshop. Here, at twodesks, the writer and John A. Maynard,Ph.D., '16, prepare transliterations and translations of texts. These then go to two ofour graduate students who type them, 30 to50 words to a card, in duplication ink andmake as many hectograph copies as areneeded. The piles of duplicates then go backto the desks, where each Assyrian word,standing in its context, as well as its translation, is underscored in ink. At the upperleft hand corner of the card is entered theform of the word under which it is to bebled. On the lower third of the card, underneath the transliteration and translation,there is printed a synopsis of the Assyriangrammar, and here the word underscoredabove is construed, "parsed," by checkingthe proper items. The cards are then filedby a filing clerk. From time to time thecards accumulating under each heading inthe files are sorted and arranged in the orderthat will make them readily available for incorporation into the dictionary.In the course of time we hope to have theassistance of a large number of "outside"scholars in the work of translating texts.Three such are now lending valuable aid:T. J. Meek, Ph.D., '15, Professor in Meadville Theological School; Leroy Waterman,Ph.D., '12, Professor in the University ofMichigan, and Dr. S. A. B. Mercer, Professor in the Western Theological Seminary( Chicago).Our machinery started moving Octoberfirst ot last year. As was to be expected, ittook some time to get under way, but wehave now, March 1st, about 35,000 cards inthe tiles. Our estimate of the total numberthat will have to be made is, roughly, one(Continued on page 227)ALUMNI 215Prominent Alumni*• ..-*Alice Greenacre, '08, J. D. '11.No alumna of the University of Chicagohas shown her loyalty more steadily, orhas devoted her time andenergies to the advancement of alumni affairs inthe interests of the University more consistentlyand continuously thanhas Alice Greenacre, '08,J. D. '11. Few, indeed,have equaled her in thatrespect. We are "presenting" her, however,not because she has contributed so much towardthe success of alumni affairs, but because, withthe same qualities ofloyalty and steady endeavor, she has alreadygained wide distinction inChicago as a lawyer, andparticularly in generalprobate practice.Alice Greenacre wasborn at WashingtonHeights (now a part ofChicago) on October 25,1887. Her father, IsaiahT. Greenacre, is a lawyer—natural enough, then,that the daughter chose law as a profession.She was educated in Chicago grade schoolsand Englewood High School, and then entered the University, taking the undergraduate classical course. Many who wereundergraduates at that time will recall her,for she was quite prominent in collegeactivities. She gained honorable mentionfor scholarship in the Junior College, wason the Y. W. C. L. Cabinet, was active inthe Woman's Union and other student organizations, and served on one of her SeniorClass committees. Among her undergraduate honors were those, especially, ofappointment as a LTniversity Aide and election to Phi Beta Kappa.After receiving her college degree, in 1908,she entered the Law School and again distinguished herself for exceptional ability.She was elected to the Order of the Coif —one of the highest honors obtainable in theLaw School. Upon obtaining her J. D. degree, in 1911, she went directly into lawpractice in Chicago, in which practice shehas been engaged since.Besides her alumni work, Miss GreenacreAlice Greenacre, '08, J. D. '11has rendered conspicuous service in civicand allied endeavors. She wrote a Handbook for W^omen Voters in Illinois, a bookthat thousands of womenof the State have deeplyappreciated. For severalyears she was treasurerof the Chicago CollegiateBureau of Occupations,an institution that hashelped hundreds of college women to obtainemployment best suitedto their training and abilities, and she assisted thisunique and helpfulBureau in other ways.She served on war workcommittees, and is atpresent doing valuablecommittee work in civicand philanthropic fields,such as the UniversitySettlement. She has donemuch for the ChicagoCollege Club and for theAmerican Association ofLmiversity W^omen. Ithas been truly said ofher that she never undertakes a job without doing it completely a n dthoroughly.Returning a moment to alumni work:Alice Greenacre has served several terms onthe Alumni Council, was President of theChicago Alumnae Club, and is now chairman of that club's Membership Committee —incidentally, she has practically doubled thelarge membership; she has been an officerseveral times of our College Alumni Association and of our Law School Association.At the big reunion last June, it was thework of Alice Greenacre, as Chairman of theClass Organizations Committee, that madeour class costume and class umbrella features so highly successful. Nor does thiscomplete her "alumni record."Miss Grcenacre's sister, Phyllis (Mrs. CurtP. Richter), is also a graduate of the LTniversity, class of 1914, and her brother wason the Freshmen football team last fall.How does she find the time to do suchhelpful outside work and yet succeed in law-practice? It's the usual answer — men amiwomen of energy and enthusiasm somehow"find the time"; better, it should be said,"they make the time." We are proud ofAlice Greenacre — as a successful lawyer, asa faithful alumna, and as a worthy citizen.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESRehearsals in ProgressUndergraduate life at the LTniversityseems to have been receiving more than itsdue share of attention during the pastmonth from the press. The downtownnewspapers seized upon what amounted toevents of minor interest to the Quadranglesfor sensational headlines. A missing "coed," Edna Taylor, '23, who subsequently reappeared, was thus featured. Studentmores and modes at the LTniversity werelampooned by John Gunther, '22, in anarticle in the April "Smart Set," which isrunning a series of college sketches. Gunther drew what was believed by many tobe an unfair picttire of the University, andhis sketch was the cause of some discussion.All undergraduate organizations wereactive as the Spring Quarter opened April3, following the winter recess. The Blackfriars, who produce their annual musicalshow May 5, 6, 12 and 13, in Mandel Hall,have started rehearsals of both cast andchorus under the direction of HamiltonColeman. A student orchestra to play forBlackfriars has been organized and gaveits first concert March 16 in co-operationwith the Glee Club. A new rule of thePhysical Culture staff prevents membersof the show from obtaining gym credit forsuch work. The Dramatic Club presentedtheir winter play, "Three Live Ghosts,"March 10 and 11. During the Spring Quarter this organization is planning to presentthe Brome "Abraham and Isaac," with theassistance of members of the faculty, anda program of original one-act plays.Otto Strohmeier, '2:;, was chosen president of the Reynolds Club at the annual elections March 10. Other Reynolds clubofficers elected were Wallace Bates, '23,vice-president; John Coulter, '22, secretary;John Thomas, '22, treasurer, and Paul Wel-ler, '24, librarian. Ruth Seymour, '23, waselected president of the LTniversity Y. W.C. A. at the annual elections March 15,Ruth Bowers, '23, vice-president; AlphaHarper, '24, secretary, and Eleanor Mills,'23, treasurer.One hundred and eighty degrees wereconferred at the spring convocation March21, the convocation address being delivered by President Wralter Dill Scott, ofNorthwestern University. The election ofeighteen students to Phi Beta Kappa wasannounced, including one summa cum laudewith Ph. D. degree to Paul Sears.In an effort to arouse interest in journalism at the LTniversity the Daily Maroonhas planned a series of lectures upon different phases of the subject. The first,April 6, was given by Professor RobertMorss Lovett, of the Department of Eng-lis, on the subject of "The American Liberal Weekly," and attracted a large audience. Others in the series include Professor James Weber Linn, '97; Professor Robert Park, Karl E. Harriman, editor of the"Red Book," and Richard Atwater, '11, nowthe "colyum conductor" for the ChicagoEvening Post.Interest during the first week of Aprilwas centered upon the fourth annual Interscholastic Basketball Tournament, whichattracted high school fives from all overthe country. The teams were entertainedat the fraternity houses and entertained atthe opening of the games with a banquet inHutchinson Hall. Harold Woods. '23, wasgeneral chairman of the series, which has attracted national attention. The problem ofchoosing a general chairman for the bigannual Track Interscholastic in June hasbeen delegated to the Athletic Department,the Undergraduate Council naming four acceptable candidates instead of selecting thechairman themselves.Alpha Tau Omega was the winner in theannual Interfraternity Bowling Tournamentheld during the Winter Quarter, defeating PhiDelta Theta in the finals. The University R.O. T. C. is organizing a student artillery battery, and Clarke Kessler, '22, has been namedstudent captain. And the Senior men are "ontheir marks" for the opening gun of the annualhair-raising moustache race.Harry Bird, Jr., '22.YOU REMEMBER— 2174>l -m— «—Do You Remember —Hamilton Coleman"That's a real show!" "Talk about dash —those Blackfriars have it!" "One of the bestshows in Chicago this year!" Such happycomments have consistently followed the applause of Blackfriarshows for the last eightyears. Now, it requiresfar more than a goodbook - and - lyrics and alively group of studentsto gain and hold the highdistinction that has beenheld by that Orderthrough its more recentperformances. What itrequires is a directorwho, besides having theneeded experience andability, also has the fullest appreciation of exactly what such an organization can andshould accomplish, andwho is able, year afteryear, to instill into thecast and chorus thespirit of giving the verybest that is in them forthe honor of the Orderand of the University.It has been the goodfortune of the Blackfriarsto have the services of such a director, withthe exception of one year, since 1914. Perhaps you've merely noticed his name on theprogram; but anyhow, here you can see himas others see him — and his name is Hamilton Coleman. Hamilton Coleman has donemore than any one man, or group of menfor that matter, to lift Blackfriar shows outof the obviously amateur class into thepolished type of performances that characterize only the best of professional musicalcomedies. Under his careful, detailed, anduntiring direction the Blackfriars have,within the last decade, won national recognition.He was born December 17, 1881, at New-Orleans, Louisiana. Even before he wasan errand-boy for the Southern Pacific railroad he nursed the ambition to be an actor.In 1899 and 1900, consequently, he was inBoston, studying for the stage, and soonafter he began his professional career. Heplayed in Shakespearean and other classicdrama for a number of years, in the companies of Frederic Warde, E. S. Willard, theHBHhHHInoted English actor, and Richard Mansfield.Mr. Coleman then wrent into musical comedy and vaudeville, and, besides acting,wrote and produced a number of vaudevillesketches. For a year hewas producing stage director at the old ChicagoOpera House, and afterthat was general stagedirector for the La SaJJeand Princess theatres inChicago. He was connected with the La Salleat the time Frank R.Adams, '04, and WillHough, ex-'04, were writing their long list ofmusical plays for thattheatre. (Adams andHough, many will recall,were leading figures instarting the Blackfriars,almost twenty years ago.)In 1906 Mr. Colemanwas married to MissLena Dowdy of Chicago.The Colemans have onechild, a daughter, Evlin.Since retiring from thestage a few years ago,Mr. Coleman has largelydivided his attention between his Florida orange-grove and his Chicagoadvertising business; he is connected withthe Oliver M. Gale Advertising Service inChicago.Did we say "retire"? No, he wanted to— but the Blackfriars soon found him outand pulled him out, back in 1914. In thatyear be produced "The Student Superior,"at once the bigest success in Blackfriarshistory. From then on, except one year,owing to illness, Hamilton Coleman, whetherhappening to oe in Chicago or summarilysummoned up from Florida, has turned outthe following list of Blackfriar hits: "TheNight of Knights," "A Rhenish Rhomance,""A Myth in Mandel," "The Naughty Nineties," and, last year, "The Machinations ofMax." In May (see elsewhere in this number) he promises to outdo even Colemanhimself with the play, "Anybody's Girl."He says, "I am interested in the LTniversitybecause of its great, helpful influence in modern life." Director Hamilton Coleman has beenmade an honorary member of the Blackfriars.Hamilton Coleman*— THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEViews of Other UniversitiesNorthwestern UniversityNorthwestern GymnasiumNorthwestern Gymnasium, sometimes known as the Patten Gymnasium, waserected a few years ago.

In the lastmonth the indoor track, swimming, waterbasketball and gymnastic championshipswere decided, with Chicago taking the latter two of the four. The basketball teamwound up the season by losing two hardgames to Wisconsin, 26-19, and 31-24. Theswimming team placed third in the conference, and the track team made five points.Coach Hoffer's gymnasts have now wonthe conference championship for four yearsin a row. They have won all their dualmeets for three seasons. In this year'smeet, Capt. Clarke Kessler won first onthe rings and the clubs, and was secondon the parallel bars. George Morris wassecond on the horizontal bar; GeorgeSchneidenbach took the all-around championship and three thirds on the rings, horizontal bars and parallel bars. Hargreaveswas fourth in tumbling, and Ricketts fourthon the horizontal bars.The swimming competition this seasonwas the best in history and the meet produced several records. Capt. EdwardBlinks won the 220, setting a new recordof 2:24 1-5, which is 7 1-5 seconds fasterthan his old conference record; took second in the 40, and would have won it hadhe not been fouled; took second in the 100,and swam on th relay team, which tookthird. He could have placed, if not won,in the 440, but Coach White refused to lethim swim, as there was nothing to gain.Byler won the fancy diving from some keencompetition, and was the only other Chicago individual to place. Blinks, Gleason,Merriam and Van Deventer were the relaymen. Minnesota won the meet, with Wisconsin second.The water-basketball team won the championship by defeating Illinois, 10-4. Theteam was not defeated during the year, andhad but four baskets made against it allseason. Capt. Merriam was an outstanding star at forward, with an uncanny ability at shooting baskets. Hall played a finegame at roving guard, with Greenebaumalso doing some excellent defensive work.The members of the team were Merriam,Crawford, Janovsky, Hall, Beckwith, Flint,Vitkin and Greenebaum. The swimmingteam also defeated Illinois in a dual meet,36-32.In the indoor track meet, Pyott took second in the quarter mile, and the relay teamplaced third. The prospects for the outdoor season are much better, as Capt. Red mon, national intercollegiate hammer throwchampion; McFarland, a good dash man;Haas, a dash and hurdle man; Frida, in theweights; Dickson, in the high jump, andMichael, in the hammer, will be added tothe team.The football team lost Capt. Milton Romney because of a conference decision thathe was ineligible. Romney piled up toomany credits, and had he stayed in schoolthis quarter would have graduated. Theconference refused to permit him to remainout during the Spring and return next fall,despite the fact that he had but one yearof conference football, and one year ofcompetition at Utah when a freshman.Romney's loss was the worst blow theteam could have received. To replace himas captain, Harold Lewis, of Oak Park,Illinois, who has played a fine game attackle for two years, was elected. Loss ofRomney, however, leaves the team withouta really good quarterback. Spring training started the second week of April with40 men, practically all of them new material, out for instruction under DirectorStagg and Coaches Jackson and Crisler.The fourth annual National Interscholastic Basketball Tournament was held inBartlett Gymnasium from April 4 to 8,with twenty-six teams from sixteen different states competing. Thirteen of theteams were state champions, and the resthad very good records. Lexington, Kentucky, won; Mt. Vernon. Ohio, was second; Rockford, Illinois, third, and Hume-Fogg, of Nashville, Tennessee, fourth.Many of the games were very close, beingwon by one or two points. It was by farthe best high school basketball tournamentever held.The conference coaches, faculty committee and presidents held a series of meetings in Chicago on April 1 and passed several amendments to rules, in an effort totighten up in the tight on professionalism.The usual meeting was also held at the timeof the conference track meet, March 18.Among the new resolutions were thoselimiting conference basketball teams tothree practice games a year; forbiddingcompetition on any team which chargedan admission fee; requiring two years' residence of any ineligible athlete who transfers to another school and "whitewashing"those who may be guilty of trifling infractions of the compensation rule by winningprizes of small value in picnic races andthe like.LETTER BOX 221iiiii:iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiii!IIIIiiiiiiiiiiii|JiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiThe Letter Box^iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin^Concerning "Extravagance" of Chicago FraternitiesMarch 23, 1922.The Editor,University of Chicago Magazine,Chicago, Illinois.Dear Sir:Since the public press has been carryingsuch wild stories about the fraternity life atthe University of Chicago, it may be of interest to the alumni to know what the recordsat the office of the Dean of Women show.It may be remembered that all social functions, under a ruling of the University, mustbe registered in the office of the Dean ofWomen.The record for the year, January 1, 1921,to D'ecember 31, 1921, shows that of thethirty-one fraternities, sixteen had no socialfunctions except at fraternity houses; sixheld one social function at hotels or clubs;five held two; two held three and two heldfour. It must be remembered that theseinclude those functions in which the localchapters participated with chapters fromother institutions. Only three were held atdowntown hotels.Considering the large number of studentsinvolved and the pressure of the rather extravagant standards of the community atlarge, I trust that the alumni will feel assured that the charges of social extravaganceare for the most part wholly unfounded.Yours truly,Marian Talbot,Dean of Women.Concerning President JudsonThe Alumini Council,University of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:It was a very fortunate day for the LTniversity of Chicago Alumni Association ofCentral Ohio when Doctor Judson decidedthat it would be possible to be present atour meeting. I am writing to advise youhow thoroughly and deeply the privilegeof meeting Doctor Judson once more wasappreciated by the individual members of theClub; and I think the universal sentimentwas, when the evening was over, that ourClub had had the very best meeting it hadever had.It was certainly a great pleasure to me tohave the privilege of entertaining DoctorJudson during the day on Friday. Thememories of this day will always be refreshing to me. Doctor Judson had stated that now thatthe University had grown so that its enrollment is over 6,000, that it is impossible forhim to know all the students personally. Iwant to say that if I were a student at theUniversity, at this time, I would certainlyseize every opportunity to cultivate theacquaintance of Doctor Judson. He is oneof the big men of our day. He is not onlya great teacher and trained diplomat, buta great moral force, and a most lovablecharacter.I have long ago forgotten much of theLatin, the French, and the history that Ilearned in college; but the influence of myassociation with, and the moral lessonslearned from Burgess, Howland, Terry,Harper and Judson, to mention only a few,are ever with me.Respectfully yours,Wm. S. Harman, '00,Columbus, Ohio.About Our News NotesLawton, Oklahoma.My Dear Mr. Pierrot:Thank you very much for your letter ofexplanation regarding news items. It wascertainly very nice of you to devote so muchtime in answering my queries. As I read theletter, I couldn't help wishing that a similarstatement could be published in the AlumniMagazine, for I have so often heard otherscomplain as I did, that they were tired ofsending in news notes which were neverprinted, and didn't intend to send any more.None of us ever imagined that such itemswere recorded. We simply thought theywent the waste basket route.If it pleases you to hear good things aboutthe magazine you may certainly feel justlypleased and proud. It grows better all thetime, and the last two issues have made mefeel more than ever the privilege of beingable to call Chicago my Alma Mater.Cordially yours,Gracia Webster Bartram, '16.(Editor's Note: The above letter wasprompted by an explanation from theAlumni Office about the requests for newsnotes, usually in the "Write Us" slips sentout in our letters.

He spoke to theHigh School, Bradley College, the BusinessMen's Lunch Club and our association.It was by far the best LTniversity of Chicago Day Peoria has ever had. We wantyou and members of the faculty to know thatthe Grand Old Man is honored by the publicin general and greatly honored and lovedby all Chicago men. \Ne are back of himfirst, last and always.We also hope that in the verv near futureyou may be able to develop plans for a"Stagg Stadium" so we can come in for thegames and find seats.Mr. Stagg made a great impression onPeoria. We hope he may be able to go outoften. Most sincerely yours,Joseph C. Hazen (D. B. '02),President, Peoria U. of C. Alumni Club.Again About the Old Man as a SpeakerMarch 3, 1922.Dear Mr. Pierrot:We certainly had a great good time withStagg and we believe he should be usedmore than he has been, not only in meetingsof the Alumni clubs, but particularly inHigh Schools. He would not need to prepare very much to be able to give splendidtalks that would be a real contribution inthe moral education of High School boys.We should like to urge that his personalityand character be utilized in this way. I daresay he himself would be a little hesitant inaccepting too many such engagements, andwe are making the suggestion not in linewith his personal interests, nor even as ameans to augment the University, so muchas to suggest it as a contribution to bemade by one of our University representatives.

One finds in this book the content of the Community-Life English Coursethat has been running in the High Schoolfor the past two years. On this same subject there has also appeared in the January,February, and March, 1922, issues of theSchool Review three articles by Mr. Hill onthe administration, organization, and resultsof this combination course in community-life English. Other phases of this same experiment will be presented at the SpringConference of Secondary Schools in Mayby Mr. Hesley. This will include a discussion of some diagnostic work with slowpupils in the teaching of community life.Other features of the work of the Department will be presented in the forthcoming Annual Volume of Proceedings ofthe University High School. The coursein the survey of civilization will be treatedin some detail by Mr. Barnard. Mr. Hillwill discuss the two-year history sequencethat is now administered in the High Schooland the course in modern history. The experimental work that Mr. Conn has beendoing the past two years with a course inmodern problems has not yet progressed tothe point where worthwhile conclusions canbe made.For those interested in the teaching ofhistory and other social studies this department has planned a number of courses forthe Summer Quarter. Mr. Stalcup, of theState Teachers College, Winona, Minnesota,during the first term, will offer a course inorganizing upper-grade and junior high-school history for teaching purposes, andfollow this in the second term with a consideration of the technique of history teaching in these grades. Air. Hill of the University Lligh School will give the course onthe technique of high-school history teaching as a major or minor either term. Inaddition he will conduct two minor coursesin the teaching of community life and thenew civics. One of these will deal withproblems of organization and the other withproblems of technique. Air. Tryon willhave charge of a new course which will dealwith the investigation of problems of theteaching of history and other social studies.In addition he will give the course on the organization of high-school history forteaching purposes which has been on hisschedule for a number of summers.Mr. Tryon's book, The Teaching of History in Junior and Senior High School,which was published in March, 1921, hashad a very successful year. The third im-impression has recently come through. Itwas placed on the reading circle list by theIllinois Board at its Christmas meeting.Arkansas had it on the reading circle listlast year and will continue it another year.It has also been used extensively as a textduring the past year in classes in the teaching of history.The Teaching of EnglishOne of the significant innovations instituted by Professor Morrison in the Laboratory Schools is a very decided extensionin general reading among all the pupilsfrom grades four to twelve inclusive.Primarily this takes the form of increasedemphasis upon both assigned and voluntaryreading in the libraries of both the HighSchool and the Elementary School. Underexpert supervision pupils spend considerable time in their respective libraries.Pupils who are somewhat in advance oftheir comrades in the regular work of theirclasses are sent to the library; others, especially in the Elementary School, who aredeficient in silent assimilative reading aresent to their library to work under aremedial teacher who endeavors to correcttheir weaknesses.Another phase of the experiment equipsall of the classrooms with reading materialin supplementary books. Especially areEnglish, social science, and general sciencelaboratories supplied with such materials.In keeping with the general programwhich transforms the class meetings fromrecitation periods into workshop periods,the pupils, writing upon various projects,accomplish a wide range of individual investigation. This is one of the means bywhich individualization of instruction is attained and the ancient method of lessonlearning and writing is supplanted by activities closely resembling the investigations which as trained men and women thepupils will later be called upon to perform.A comprehensive program of courses forthose interested in the teaching of Englishwill be offered during the Summer Quarter.For primary teachers the Kindergarten-Primary Department offers courses in beginning reading and children's literature.OF EDUCATION NOTES— ALUMNI AFFAIRSFor the middle and upper grades courses inthe teaching of language and in the teachingof reading will be given by Miss A. LauraMcGregor, Director of English in the Washington Junior High School of Rochester, N.Y. For junior high-school teachers Associate Professor Lyman will give coursescovering the teaching of both language andliterature with special attention to remedialwork and to instruction in silent reading.Professor Walter Barnes, of Fairmont, W.Va., will give courses in the teaching ofcomposition and literature on the seniorhigh-school level. In addition, for supervisors and superintendents Professor Lyman will offer a course in the Departmentof Education covering investigations inlanguage, grammar, and composition.School of Education NotesSchool of Education Reunion and DinnerOne of the important and entirely enjoyable affairs of the year is the annual socialhome-coming of the School of Educationwhich is to be held this year on May 12, atsix o'clock, in Ida Noyes Hall. This year'saffair will be a fitting finale to the HighSchool Conference which is to take place onMay 11 and 12. There will be a splendiddinner interspersed with wise and witty remarks from speakers of real worth, andafterward there will be dancing with plentyof punch to cool the followers of the terp-sichorean art.Speakers for the evening will be our ownDr. Judd, Superintendent J. O. Engleman,of Joliet, and Miss B. M. Smith, of theOak Park High School, all of whom needno introduction to our students and alumni.Let us leave nothing undone to make thisbetter in every way than preceding dinnersand to secure the attendance of all thoseconnected with our branch of the institution,so that every one may enjoy the programand the meetings with old friends. Facultymembers, alumni, former students, studentsin residence, wives, husbands, and friendsare included in this invitation.There will be a charge of $1.00 per plateand all intending to come will please notifyMr. W. G. Whitford, School of Education,by mail in advance. This, however, is notcompulsory, but advisable, as such notifications simplify the planning of a dinner. Ifyou cannot come, send a message.The Laboratory SchoolsPlans are nearly complete for the publication of a series of yearbooks by the management and faculty of the Laboratory Schools.It is proposed in these documents to pictureat some length the results of studies beingmade in the High School and the Elementary School.

Why, wedidn't know what a singer Stagg was, andso for those thus privileged there was another treat. But this even was excelledwhen we took him up to the office of theFree Press as we promised so that a statement might be ready for the morning paper.He was asked what his topic was for hisaddresses in the High Schools during theday. He said, "Well, now, I don't know.I "guess you'd just have to say 'CharacterBuilding'"" and thus the next morning thatpaper carried a head line "Stagg Shuns SportTopics." Next lines, "Gives Talks toCrowded High Schools On Rules of theGame.'" Our largest paper, the DetroitNews, the next day, carried an article writ-ten by the Sporting Editor who had interviewed Stagg the evening before, with a headline as follows, "Stagg Cites College Aim;'Moulding of Character,'" and then thearticle went on in a double column quotingin some detail, the outline of his remarks.And so the coming of Stagg was an occasion memorable for our Club and one thatdelighted and stimulated us most agreeably.Our" wish is that other Clubs may have thesame splendid opportunity.The members of the Club present Feb-ruarv 17th were: Charles S.

Downing (Ph. D., '01)(The University of Chicago Press)Those of us who like to spend our holidays in the open and who are curious aboutthe birds, animals and flowers that we see,have in this beautiful new book a most engaging sort of pocket teacher.Air. Downing has prepared for us a newsort of outdoor guide. He has interwovenhis descriptions of the living creatures thatare to be found in the central states with thestory of the geologic development of theregion. We are told of the origin andchanging life of the dunes, as well as theminutiae of the animals and plants that live-there; we read about the creation of theforests and learn to recognize the ferns, theberries, and all the different trees that fordefinite reasons of natural law we shouldexpect to >ee ; we note the development ofriver valleys and prairies with their distinctive plant and animal life.A Naturalist in ill,' Great Lakes l\'c</i<>u isnot a book to be left at home ami referredto after a hike. The author and publishersobviously had the nature-lover in mind whenthe}' made it small and thm and bound ilm a limp cover. There is no excuse nowfor not being able in identify right on thespot the- curious things we see, and, in addition, to know how they happen to be there.There are over four hundred interesting illustrations and an index that allows ofimmediate reference to the contents of thebook.In presenting this volume to the public,Air. Downing gives a suggestion of thevalue it holds for the reader in these wordsfrom the preface: "There is no commonplace; the most dully monotonous environment is full of wonders, if vision can beenlarged to apprehend them. J. HenriFabre, that astute French naturalist whoseportrayal of the interesting lives of thehumble denizens of field and forest we areall reading with avidity, saw more of themarvelous in his own back yard than theaverage globe-trotter sees in all his travels.Slabsides was but a poor shack in an ordinary farm wood lot. The pond at Waldenhas its duplicate in the outskirts of a thousand American villages. But John Burroughs and Henry I). Thoreau had eyes tosee, ears to hear, and hearts to understand."Fortunately there is an ever-increasingnumber iA persons, both young and old, whoare learning what fascination there is in thetales Nature spreads before our eyes in hilland dale, river and forest, bird and beast,flower and blade of grass. They are learning to read the landscape, to achieve a companionship in the outdoors quite as realand as satisfying as that of a wise friendor a stimulating book. For such this book-is written as an aid to an understanding offamiliar surroundings."REVIEWS— ASSYRIAN DICTIONARYAmerica and the Balance Sheet of Europe,by John F. Bass and Harold G. Moulton('07, Ph.D., '15). (The Ronald Press, NewYork.)Will the inter-allied war debts ever bepaid? Would it be a good thing if theywere? Can America collect the Allies' wardebt to her? Would it be wise for us totry? How would an all-around cancellation of government war debts affect ourtaxes and our business? The analysis ofquestions like these, in "America and theBalance Sheet of Europe," brings out unexpected answers:"There can be no genuine recovery ofbusiness until normal trade relations arc reestablished; and normal trade relations cannot be re-established so long as wholly abnormal international debt payments are insisted upon." (Page 329.)"The modern world is an economic unitand there can be no genuine prosperity anywhere so long as any important section iseconomically and socially disintegrating.The restoration of productive activities inthe United States is in large measure dependent upon the restoration of Europeanbuying power. Balanced trade is fundamental to the successful operation of themodern system of specialized production andexchange between nations."A restoration of international equilibriumis not in the long run to be attained throughpiling up further European debts to the United States. If Europe is to revive and ifthe international financial system is again tobe brought into normal adjustment, European exports must be expanded relativelyto imports."These principles lead inevitably to theconclusion that European government debtsto the LTnited States Government should becancelled." (Page 327.)This whole problem, and other problemsconnected with it, are analyzed in "Americaand the Balance Sheet of Europe." It is auseful volume which deserves its success.Read it.The New Assyrian Dictionary(Continued from page 214)million.

Considering how widely we are scattered, this was really an excellent showing.Eight of the Chicago people read papers,the topics of which represented a widevariety of psychological fields.On the evening of December 28, the groupgathered at Bayard Lane coffee house forthe time-honored dinner. There were inattendance: Drs. Arlitt, Bingham, Carr,Mabel Fernald, Joseph Hayes, Mary Hayes,Hunter, Kantor, Kitson, Joseph Peterson,E. S. Robinson, Florence Richardson Robinson, Ruml (and Mrs. Ruml). Thurstone,Yarborough, and Yoakum. During the dinner a telegram extending the greetings ofMr. Judd and a letter extending those ofMr. Angell were read.Following the dinner, Mr. Hunter's committee delivered a report, the outcome ofwhich you have already heard. Plans fora permanent but informal organization werepresented by Aliss Vincent's committee.This plan, with some slight amendments, isrepresented by the following constitution:Constitution of the Psychology Sectionof the Association of Doctors of Philosophyof the University of ChicagoARTICLE ISection 1The name of this organization shall beThe Psychology Section of the Associationof Doctors of Philosophy of the Universityof Chicago.Section 2The object of this organization shall be topromote the professional interests of itsmembers and to keep them informed fromtime to time of the progress of the University of Chicago Department of Psychologyand of the activities of their fellow members.ARTICLE IIAll doctors of philosophy in psychologyof the University of Chicago shall be considered active members of this organization. Honorary members of this sectionmay be elected by a majority of the members of the organization.ARTICLE IIIThe officers of this organization shall bea chairman, and a secretary (who shall be aresident of Chicago) who shall be electedannually and who shall constitute an executive committee.OF THE CLASSES AND ASSOCIATIONS 231ARTICLE IVThe organization shall hold one regularmeeting a year at the time of the annualmeeting of The American Psychological Association.ARTICLE VThis constitution may be amended at anyregular meeting by a two-thirds vote of theactive members of this organization presentat any regular meeting.It is interesting to note that, even beforethis organization was effected, the plan forit was received with considerable approvalby the Association of Doctors of Philosophyof the University of Chicago and that, following our example, other groups of doctors have already formed or are consideringforming similar organizations.After the adoption of the constitution, Mr.Bingham was elected chairman of the groupfor the ensuing year and Mr. Robinson,secretary.A Letter From Secretary SlaughtThe above report concerning the organization of the Psychological Section of theAssociation of Doctors of Philosophyseems to be a move in a desirable direction,inasmuch as it is intended to emphasizethe desirability of getting together ingroups by departments in connection withthe various scientific organizations. In allof the major departments of the Universitythere are now sufficiently large numbersof doctors to make a good working; unit,and the departmental organization is thenatural one, since it draws together thosewhose work is of kindred character. It isto be hoped that such organizations maybe multiplied as time goes on in all departments where the number of doctors becomes large enough to make such an organization effective.It is perfectly clear that the developmentof such sections of the Doctors' Association will in no sense tend to disintegratethe body as a whole but, on the other hand,will strengthen the Association in generaljust because of the inevitable strengtheningof the departmental groups. As indicatedin the constitution of the Psychology Section, the object of such organizations is topromote the reputation and influence ofthe University of Chicago through the effective organization and activity of thevarious groups. Without doubt these organizations will greatly stimulate the support of the Association as a whole. It isa matter of congratulation for our Association that we have stood practically foremost among all the federated alumni organizations so far as the percentage of ourentire membership which is actively supporting the Alumni Council.

Otherwise people everywherewould not have a never-failing supplyof lamb, beef, "Premium" Ham andBacon, * 'Sil verleaf ' Brand Pure Lard, etc.Ability to furnish this service inlocalities hundreds of miles from ourplants, at minimum cost and profit, isour reason for existing.Our profit over a period of ten yearshas averaged only about one quarter ofa cent per pound— less than a nickel aweek for the average family which buysonly Swift meat.Swift & Company, U.S.A.Founded 1868'^nation-wide organization owned by more thsi1.-^■* 45,000 shareholders Alumni Affairs(Continued from page 225)the home of Dr. and Mrs. W.

"My first job wasto build a shanty""VI7HEN I got out of school," said the old grad,V V "I went around all primed to discuss equilibrium of moments or to lay out a high tension systembetween New York and Chicago."But the first thing the boss set me at was to build ashanty. That had me stumped. It didn't seem fair.I'd never had a shanty course at college."Still I rolled my sleeves up and started in. At firstthe thing wouldn't 'jell' at all. The joints didn't stayput. The roof sagged in the middle."But I went over my plans and reasoned out the whyand wherefore of the trouble on a common-sense basis.I stayed with that job till I had it licked."Then I suddenly realized that the biggest thing I hadlearned at college was not the bits of specific information,but something of much more importance which these hadtaught me— the ability to think."No curriculum can include everything you ought toknow. Its business is to show you the principles whichunderlie all knowledge.So if your ambition is to become a man's size engineeror manufacturer, you must start now to get at the heartof your problems. Visualize how those basic laws canapply to other and vaster work.Then you'll be ready for whatever new demand comesalong, and when your big opportunity comes to carry outsome of your visions of great achievement — you'll findthe going easier. ** * *The electrical industry needs men who can see far andthink straight.This advertisement is one of a series in studentpublications. It may remind alumni of their opportunity to help the undergraduate ', by suggestion andadvice, to get more out of his four years.Been Looking Forward to ThisNow we've put in a room for young men.A room of their own where they can come for theirfirst "long pants" and start a long and satisfactorycareer of "Capper Clothes."A room where they can find the sort of garments — -suits, top-coats, dress clothes — that they've been looking forward to during the last years of the knicker age.Clothes that young fellows understand and appreciatebetter than anybody else. The sort of garments thatcome into their mind's eye when the name "Capper &Capper" is mentioned; and which, until now, theycould not always be sure of getting.We've wanted to do this for years — but didn't haveroom.
