No. 7 MTHOUSAND ALUMNICome Back in 1921In the June (1921) issue of the AlumniMagazine the alumni secretary made thestatement that about 3,000 alumni came backfor the 1921 reunion. Whatever the numberthe large attendance was a fine demonstration of loyalty.Chicago alumni show their loyalty notonly by returning to their alma mater whenever possible, but by supporting her in all hergreat enterprises and by looking to her forleadership in educational ideas. This is evidenced by the fact that Chicago alumni areamong the most enthusiastic users of our textand reference books and that their namesappear in large numbers on the subscriptionlists of our journals.The University of Chicago Press throughits publications is a logical medium of contact between the alumni and the University.fintoergttp of Chicago iHagajmeEditor and Business Manager, Adolph G.

MAY, 1922 No. 7There are about 1,500,000,000 people spinning about on our globe; over 100, 000, 000 ofthese inhabit the United States.Chicago Yet, of all these millions and mil-Calls! lions, only a few thousand —among which you are fortunatelyenrolled — have the privilege of calling Chicago their Alma Mater. The June reunionsoffer an annual opportunity to all Chicagoans to express, in a rather definite way,some measure of appreciation of this rareprivilege and of the advantages that theUniversity has conferred upon all of herformer students.It is gratifying to note, consequently, thatour reunions take on larger significance inthe spirit of true appreciation as the yearspass and the number of classes grows. Andit is particularly gratifying to note the enthusiasm and energy of the Reunion Committee and the class officers — upon whoseshoulders must fall the main burden of reunion affairs — in working for a representative showing of the classes at the coming-gathering. But — without your cooperation,without your attendance, their loyal effortwould be of but little avail. It is yourReunion as much as theirs, and they lookto you rightly to come back and help makethe assembly a pronounced success. Thisyear prizes are being offered for the bestclass showing. Do what you can to helpyour class be the first to win the honors!The first announcement has already beenmailed to some 15,000 alumni, carrying itsmessage of greetings and welcome, and outlining the program. The program also appears in this number. The Field Day, theSing, the Alumnae Breakfast, the Parade,Ballgame, Shanty and class ceremonies,Street Dance and Carnival — all these are events in which everyone can find festiveinterest. The program holds opportunityfor real fun, for renewing acquaintances,and for getting back again into the Chicagospirit.Many loyal alumni, of course, can notreturn for the occasion. But there areoften some who can return but who, forsome odds-and-ends "reason," stay away.But, for such as may, perchance, continueto warp the meaning of "freedom," wesuggest a careful reading of President Jud-son's "Charge to the Graduates" in thisnumber. The Reunion gives us all thegreat chance to show loyalty to Chicago—and to have a fine time while doing it. So,get set: June 7-8-9-10 — Chicago calls! Comeback — and welcome home'Within the last few weeks two mattersof large import to the Alumni Fund haveoccurred. The letters from Air. Wal-The lace Heckman, Business Manager ofFund the Lhiiversity, and W. A. Black, analumnus in Indianapolis, in thismonth's Letter Box, tell of them. The income from the Alumni Fund, which wasestablished some two years ago, is nowsufficiently large not only to defray all duesand subscription charges against it but toentirely relieve the University of any subsidy for alumni activities. For the firsttime in our alumni history, beginning July1, 1922, we will no longer be a financialburden 'to the University which our association was founded to serve. To bringabout this self-support was, of course, oneof the main objects of the Fund, an objectthat it has rapidlv accomplished. As Chairman Frank McNair, '03, of the Fund Di-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINErectors, has well .stated in his Fund reportin our April number, "A University Association of the size of ours could with properpride scarcely do less than stand on its ownfeet, to say nothing of doing somethingconstructive for the University."We are now about to "stand on our ownfeet" — and, in addition, it can not be longbefore the Fund income begins to do "something constructive for the University." Certainly, as the Fund grows it will prove anunfailing source of constructive assistanceto Alma Mater. As to the growth of theFund, the letter from Mr. Black is of special significance. He plans, you will note,to make a bequest to the Fund of the principal sums of some life insurance. His interesting letter explains why he adopts thisplan of grateful reward to his Alma Materand the benefits of such action in general.It is a plan that looks confidently, frankly,and loyally to the future and the welfareof the University. Undoubtedly, as the yearspass the Fund will grow not only by directLife and other membership subscriptionsbut also by such contributions as Air. Blackplans, and by special donations. In "favorable" years it will grow by leaps andbounds. Its constructive assistance is destined to become a very large factor in advancing the aims and purposes of the LTni-versity.All of our alumni associations have elections for various association officers each year. The College AssociationElections has an election, conducted bypostcard ballot, just before eachJune Reunion. On another page in thisnumber appears the regular election noticeand a list of the candidates being voted onthis year. The importance of these elections should not be overlooked; the ballotshave been mailed out; every member of theCollege Association should vote. The signature of the voter, formerly required, isnot required this year, hence the ballot isentirely secret. Be a truly "active" member of the Association — mark your ballotand send it in to the Alumni Office.* * *Two years ago the plan of having clubgatherings on Alumni Day — or at least nearthat day, and in the reunion spiritClub — was successfully started. LastReunions }'ear most of our clubs held Reunion-time meetings, and manytelegrams and letters of greetings were sentin to the University and read on AlumniDay. We take it for granted now that, so ■far as possible, every Chicago Club includesa Reunion-time meeting on its generalschedule, and that such meetings will beheld this year throughout the country. Itis a fine club program, indeed, and shouldnot be allowed to drop. We urge all ofour club officers and all club members toarrange a big Reunion meeting. Let ushear from you on Alumni Day! And bestwishes!St. Paul's on the Midway and Ryder Divinity HouseThis group of buildings of the Church of St. Paul's on the Midway (Universalist) occupies the southwest corner of Sixtieth Street and Dorchester Avenue and was completed in1910. The Ryder Divinity School was allied to the University of Chicago in 1912. Thegroup makes a ni< st attractive and interesting addition to the buildings along the Alidway1922 REUNION—WELCOME HOME!rwm THE 1922 REUNIONWELCOME HOME!VOS SALUTAMUS!Welcome, alumni, back to the Universityof Chicago, school of your youth and happymemories. May this 31st anniversary ofAlma Mater bring you joy in reunion withyour companions of other days. Throwyourself into the fun and pleasures of theprogram with a blithe heart. Turn backthe clock of time and be young again. TheLTniversity bids you greeting. Welcomehome!Henry D. Sulcer, '05,Chairman, Reunion Committee.THE 1922 REUNIONAbove are the greetings and welcomefrom Henry D. Sulcer, '05, Chairman of the1922 Reunion Committee, to all alumni.Every alumnus and alumna will feel andappreciate its high spirit. Every alumnusand alumna should make an effort to respond, to be on the Quadrangles duringReunion week! If you can not attend allof the events, then attend as many of themas your time permits. It will be a big-Reunion, a fine gathering of Chicago alumnithat you will long remember with keenpleasure.The Reunion Chairman began his worklast January. For weeks, even months,beforehand, the Committee and the ClassOfficers have been organizing, planning,making preparations — for you.The Reunion CommitteeThe Reunion Committee is as follows:General Chairman, Henry D.

Sulcer, '05Reunion ChairmanThe announcement, of four months ago, that HenrySulcer, '05, had been selected as Chairman for the1922 Reunion was met with hearty and appreciativeresponse by hundreds of alumni. Almost immediatelythereafter a number of alumni, many of whom recallhim in his "Glee Gub Days" at Chicago, offered toassist him and help along at the Tune gathering.Henry has appointed a representative Reunion Committee, all of the members being known to largegroups of alumni, all to some degree experienced inthe special work they are undertaking, and with awell scattered representation from the classes. Sulcer,who is president of Yanderhoof & Company, advertising agents, Chicago, is one of the most widely knownand successful advertising men in the Middle West.He has been connected with advertising work, inone capacity or another, ever since his graduationfrom the University. He is a member of Psi Upsilonfraternity, of Owl and Serpent senior society, and ofseveral clubs in the city. Active and prominent inhis undergraduate days, he has never lost theirspirit, and looks upon each Reunion as the rarechance for each one of us to renew our youth, toextend our Chicago acquaintances, and to expressour loyalty to Alma Mater with true and high enthusiasm. His sincere and eager efforts deserve ourfullest support.

It contains a number of eventsthat have become traditional at our annualgatherings and are always enjoyed andsuccessful. This year, of course, as in thepast, new features are added. All in all,it is a program that not only admits ofevery one taking some part in the Reunion,but it also offers some opportunity formeeting old friends and classmates duringthe festivities.The Classes on Parade!Judging from the activities of the classofficers, the classes will make a strongershowing this June than ever before. Inaddition to the reunions of all the classes,the plan has been well started this yearof emphasizing the special reunions of theanniversary classes. While all of theclasses will be costumed, the special classes,'97, '02, '07, '12, and '17, observing their 25th,20th, 15th, 10th and 5th reunions, respectively, will have Moats in the Parade onSaturday, J tine 10, as well as class costumesand other insignia. Some of the otherclasses are also planning to have floats, butthe anniversary groups will have them asa regular feature. The Parade organizes infront of Cobb Hall, and starts at 1:30sharp. It will be a parade worth joiningand worth seeing.The anniversary classes, furthermore, areall planning special class events — dinners,teas, dances, stunts — for their own classprograms, events which every member ofthe class will find both interesting and en-tKJje $re£tbent'£ Charge to<fi5rabuate£(Delivered by President Judson at EachConvocation)You have been given parchments recitingthe action of the University of Chicago in bestowing on you the respective degrees to whichyou are entitled. In the Latin formulas youwill find that you are granted all the rightsand privileges of those academic degrees. 1now call your attention to the converse ofthose rights and privileges — the obligationswhich you now incur. We hear much of rightsbut too little of the correlative obligations.Remember that every right, whether in accordance with the law of the land or of those stillmore fundamental moral laws which are vitalto all political ami social structure, carrieswith it a duty which the individual owessociety, quite as much as society owes respectof individual rights. With each new right andprivilege, therefore, you at once come underthe obligation of a new duty.By virtue of your degree you are admittedto the great body of our citizens who have enjoyed the benefit of college life or of professional training. In a certain sense, therefore,you belong to a body selected from their fellows by special opportunities. Accordingly,while you rest under all the common obligations of citizenship, you also are under specialobligations incumbent on all who have hadsuch opportunities.I charge you always to remember what youowe to Alma Mater. This obligation is notdischarged by cheers in a crowd of one's fellows, still less in later life by contributionsfrom one's abundance. Loyalty to AlmaMater implies obedience to its best teaching,devotion to truth ; using one's powers alwaysand everywhere so as to keep the name of theLTniversity stainless in the lives of its sons andof its daughters.I charge you to remember that the safety ofour free Republic depends above all on thesacredness of the home, and that every graduate of our higher institutions of learningshould jealously guard his own life so as tocherish this essence of our civilization especially against the loose thinking of idle-visionaries.I charge you to remember that as educatedmen and women you owe an especial duty toour country, not only if need be to give yourlives to it in time of battle, but to guard itsfabric from destruction at the hands of thosewhose ignorance or fanaticism makes themenemies within the gates. The Constitutionof our land must lie defended from all hostileaction. Its changes should be permitted onljunder the orderly forms of law. Obedience tolaw is the first duty of a citizen of a free stale,.and our alumni should always be an embattledhost in .allegiance to this duty.These three loyalties, loyalty to Alma Mater,loyalty to home, loyalty lo country, 1 chargeyou to heed as among those which you aboveall others owe without stint.I ask no pledges save such as you givespontaneously in your own hearts .and consciences.Only, speaking for the University, I chargeyou as its sons .and daughters to be faithfulalways in the great loyalties of life.1922 REUNION 249joyable. On Alumni Day the classy classumbrellas will again be the rallying points— a plan which was most successfullyinaugurated last year.The Shanties Will Be There!This is the fourth year of the Shanties organization. The largest gathering of the"Naughty Ninety Shanties" since the organization was started in 1910 will takeplace. A new feature of "Ye Old Timers,"who will again gather about the Shanty,will be the use of a Shanty RegistrationBook, for the Shanties only, which has beendesigned and made up like a medievalvolume. The materials for this book weresent from London, in reply to a cable request, so as to have this unique volume inproper medieval style and appearance. During the year it will be kept in HarperLibrary, not only as a fine example ofmedieval book making, but as a permanentrecord of those Shanties who attended theReunions year after year. The Class of '01,according to custom, will have charge of theShanty Ceremonies and the Initiation, and,likewise, according to custom, the Classof '02, on its 20th anniversary, will beinitiated. The Shanties have organized aReception Committee, Elinor Flood, ''J'.),Chairman, to greet the members at theShanty.Come Back!Reunions come but once a year. ThisReunion on the 31st anniversary of theUniversity, and the 66th anniversary of theOld University, promises to surpass anyJune assembly we have yet held. One important matter should be noted: Therewere mistakes last year — all of them unexpected, of course — that will not be madethis year. The Committees are going to seethat the Supper, the Parade, the Carnivalor Fete, and all other features on the program are managed so as to give fullestsatisfaction to all. The experience gainedin 1921 will be taken advantage of in 1922,and all events will be conducted smoothlyand correctly in the spirit of the gathering.The tickets — at $2.00 each — cover all eventsof the Day. Every effort is being made toplease you — to help you to have a good oldChicago time. Come back — -join your class— get in the Parade — Chicago calls! Welcome home!

Pierrot, secretary-treasurer.The minutes of the previous meeting ofJanuary 17 were read, approved, and orderedfiled. Several communications were read andreferred to the proper committees. Theusual financial statements on Alumni Council finances were presented and reviewed.The statement on the Alumni Fund (whichappeared in the April number of the magazine) was presented, and discussion followedas to expenditure of the Fund income. Onmotion, the Council unanimously instructedthe directors of the Fund to notify the University that, beginning with the University'sfiscal year on July 1, 1022, no further subsidy from the University will be requestedby the Alumni Council. Henceforth, consequently, the University will only be calledupon to pay for the maintenance of theAlumni files, as one of its regular departments, and the Council will finance its ownactivities completely, through the assistanceof income from the Alumni Fund.Following the regular reports of the standing committees, a report by Chairman CharlesF. Axelson of the special Committee onUndergraduate Relations was read, recommending improvement in the UniversityBand, and requesting the University to fixupon a definite policy as to solicitation ofadvertising and donations from alumni bystudents. The Council approved this report and instructed the Committee to submit it to the President's office.Chairman Henry D. Sulcer, of the ReunionCommittee, outlined the tentative programfor the June Reunion, and Elizabeth Bredin,chairman of the Class ( >rganization Committee, reported on the activities of theclasses for the June gathering-. There wasgeneral discussion on the program. Mr.Stagg, who was invited to present his views,urged the continuation of enlisting undergraduate participation in the reunions insome way, so as to gain additional life, interest, and enthusiasm for Alumni Da v. lie pointed out that at most all large institutions some kind of student activity is puton the reunion program as an added "drawing-card." On motion, the council voted toallow the Reunion chairman to modify hisprogram so as to include such undergraduateparticipation as may be deemed desirable andpracticable.A letter from an alumnus, Air. W. A.Black of Indianapolis, asking how a bequestintended for the Alumni Fund should bemade, resulted in the appointment of aspecial committee, composed of Alice Greenacre, Frank McNair, and Leo F. Wormser,to investigate into the matter of incorporating the Alumni Fund and to report thereonat the next meeting of the Council.After further general discussion of Alumniaffairs, the meeting adjourned at 10:40 p. m.Professor Clark Addresses Cleveland ClubApril 24, 1922.My dear Mr. Pierrot:We met Saturday night, April 22, at the\\ niton Hotel, as announced, and had a goodtime. At the business meeting which followed the dinner Walter Kassulker, '12, presided. Dr. A. R. Hatton, Ph.D., '07, Professor of Political Science at Western Reserve LTniversity was elected president, andI was made Secretary and Treasurer.After the meeting there was some unofficial discussion as to whether the womenshould continue their organization. Some ofthe men thought that the more Chicago organizations there were the more we wouldlimit the attendance at general meetings. Onthe other hand we feel that the women'sclub has fostered and promoted spirit. Weshall have at least one more women'sluncheon and report back to them thismeeting and discuss whether the womenshall disband.And now to get to the main event of theevening. Professor Clark's address. Thosewho were prepared for the usual digest ofcampus activities had a surprise in store, forinstead we heard a veritable sermon on Responsibility. To try to report it is useless.I find that all the phrases that come to mymind sound commonplace, whereas therewas nothing commonplace about it. Hescored the lack of really serious conversation among students at the University andthe lack of serious reading among University graduates as the two greatindictments against our present educational program, and said that everycollege graduate should read regularly atAFFAIRS 85Jleast one serious journal (not necessarily theSaturday Evening Post or the Literary Digest). He "movieized" for us the source ofthe money which provided a University forus to attend, showing that in the last analysis it was the washerwoman over the tub andthe workman in the ditch who paid for oureducation, and that our responsibility tosociety must be assumed in the light of thisrealization. Oh, it was great, a regular sermon on the social gocpel!We appreciated the Magazines and Maroons, the songs and the C name tags. Weused them all and kept the Magazines andsongs for use at our next women's luncheon.A few of the Magazines were takenhome but many are already subscribers.I am planning to find out how many aresubscribers. Guess I'll put in a dotted linefor that in the letter I am going to send out.I'll send you a copy of the letter.Those present at the dinner at Cleveland :S. H. Clark, Louis F.

The Dinner was a great success. In all there were ninety-two at thetable. We were seated by colleges and inturn all did our best to outdo the otherswith songs, yells and boasts of the greatnessof our respective alma maters. Mr. HugoBezdek, '08, gave a history of the Conference whose existence was the reason for ourcoming together.You may believe that none of us fromChicago ever forgot our associations withthe best school in the country, even thoughwe have not organized formally nor held anymeetings this year. I am sure we all keep in mind the aims of the LTniversity of Chicago clubs established elsewhere and nodoubt the recorder's office would show thatwe have contributed some students to theUniversity. If at any time members of thefaculty are coming by this way, we hopeyou will tell us so that we may plan a meeting and hear from the campus at first hand.Verv sincerely vours,(Mrs. J. Ben) Helen D. Hill, Ph. D. '14.Chicagoans at Big Ten St. Louis Banquet —Merrifield Tells of Oriental AthleticsSecretary, Alumni Council,LTniv. of Chicago.My dear Mr. Pierrot:I thought you might be interested to hearabout the Big Ten Alumni banquet that washeld Friday night, April 7. About a monthago a group of men, made up of two alumnifrom each of the Big Ten schools, movedby the common desire to promote Big Tenactivities in this part of the country andobtain helpful publicity, formed the Big TenAlumni Council of St. Louis. I enjoyed theprivilege of representing the University ofChicago in this council.Wre set out at once to make known theexistence of the new organization and toadvertise its purpose. The idea of a BigTen Alumni stag dinner presented itself atonce as the most effective way of accomplishing- the desired results.Due to the comparative inactivity at thetime in athletic competition, the timeseemed propitious for getting the head coachof each school to attend and having an athletic jubilee. With the exception of Minnesota and Indiana, we were successful in getting a representative man from each school.Fred Merrifield delighted us all by comingdown to represent Chicago. The ^otherswere Jones, Iowa; Yost, Michigan; Griffith,Illinois; Wilce, Ohio; Robinson, Northwestern; Lambert, Purdue, and Meanwell, Wisconsin.About two hundred and fifty enthusiasticalumni turned out to greet this group ofillustrious mentors. About twenty Chicagomen were on hand singing "Wave the Flag"and cheering "Hello, bello." After a fewlively brushes between the alumni groups,trying to outcheer each other, the urge offood made itself felt, and the business ofmeeting old friends at the table took place.Branch Rickey, a Michigan alumnus andmanager of the St. Louis Cardinals, officiated as toastmaster. His ready wit andfluency kept the action at top speed, and theinterest of everyone was unfailing until aftereleven o'clock. He introduced our FredMerrifield as the first speaker of the evening. Needless to say, Fred gave a hue talkand started the evening off in a happy mood.The charge of prejudice loes not preventme from saying that he gave the most interesting talk of the evening. He chose asTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEhis subject "The Oriental in Athletics." Histalk covered the experiences of the first LTniversity of Chicago baseball team to Japan.He told of their trials and tribulations, andtheir lessons ill Oriental psychology in anentertaining and humorous manner. Histopic was unusual and for that reason allthe more entertaining. The prolonged cheering and clapping attested the warmth of hisreception and the enjoyment of !.is talk. Allthe Chicago men were proud of him.The evening was brought to a close by avery interesting discussion of professionalism among college athletes between Yostof Michigan and Lambert of Purdue. Yostwas emphatically against professionalism tothe extent of saying that he would stamp itout or give up his job. He had his factswell arrayed in support of his condemnation,since he had but recently met in Chicagowith the other Big Ten coaches for thepurpose of making new rules and devisingways of killing professionalism. Lambertmade a very frank confession of his personalexperience as a summer baseball player whenhe was going to school, and was equallyemphatic about living up to the rules, butexpressed considerable doubt as to the efficacy of rules, since professionalism amongcollege ball players was so prevalent.The banquet was such a success, in everyway, that the fond hopes of the Councilof making it an annual affair will certainlybe realized. When you see him, will youplease express to Fred Merrifield again thepleasure we enjoyed in having him with usWith best regards, I amL. R. Felker, '20,.r)79:i Westminster Place, St. Louis, Mo.Big Meeting of Chicago Geologists at TulsaMarch 23, 1922.Dear Mr. Pierrot:The University of Chicago Club withinthe American Association of PetroleumGeologists held its annual meeting March10 this year at Oklahoma City in connection with the Association meetings.There were two sessions of this Chicago(lul), the first a luncheon on Friday, MarchK), at the Skirvin Hotel, with an attendanceof fifty-two. This was in charge of a committee elected last year consisting of R. A.Conkling, chairman, Sam Wells and "Bill"Wrather. This committee was re-electedto have charge next year.During the luncheon, after several cheersand Chicago songs, Messrs. DcWolf, Black-welder, Washburne, Trowbridge and otherstold us many things of late interest in thedepartment of Geology al Chicago. Thecommittee had tried very hard to arrangewith Professor Salisbury for a representative from that department to be present, butas the meetings came during the closing daysof the quarter this was not possible.We were pleased to learn th.it Bill Wrather has been invited to give a coursein oil geology at Chicago this spring andwill do so. It pleases any of us alumni tobe able to serve our Alma Mater in any way,and we feel that Mr. Wrather has a splendidopportunity for establishing closer relationsbetween the man in the field and the onein the University. The Alma Mater wassung before the luncheon group disbanded.That evening at the annual banquet of theAssociation, J. Elmer Thomas and Mr.Whitehead took charge of the Chicago groupand we were seated at adjacent tablesgrouped at one end of the hall. Upon beingseated we donned maroon paper caps andbig white paper streamers, and from thatmoment we out-cheered Wisconsin, Cornell,Texas and other schools. The LTniversity ofOklahoma alone out-numbered us; but Ibelieve anyone would admit that we mademore noise and showed more get-togetherability. This due probably to the "pep"meeting at the luncheon.Enclosed is the list of those present at theluncheon: R. A. Conkling, Sam Wells,Winifred Conkling, Jon. A. LTdden, Mrs. JonA.

All of theleading women's colleges, and all of theconference universities were represented.The papers and discussions were groupedin three sections: On publications, onalumni work and policies, and on campaigns.Among the papers presented were those on"Subscription Campaigns," by Walter R.Okeson, Lehigh Alumni Bulletin; "Alake-upand Type," by J. L. Alorrill, Ohio StateUniversity Monthly; "Publicity," by FosterAI. Coffin, Cornell University alumni secretary; "Value of an Alumnae Fund," by AlissFlorence H.

Allis, Amherst College.All of the papers were the result of wideinvestigation and proved deeply interestingand instructive.The social program included a banquet onThursday evening, Alay 4, in the new Wesley Foundation Building, and trip throughthe LTniversity of Illinois, by auto, on Friday afternoon. Mr. J. L. Alorrill, of OhioState University, was elected president ofAlumni Magazines Associated, and Air.Foster M. Coffin, of Cornell, president ofthe Association of Alumni Secretaries. Oneof the most interesting events on the program was the showing of moving picturesof commencement and reunion scenes atPurdue, Cornell, Minnesota and Smith College. The conference will be held next yearat Case and Western Reserve University.Cleveland, Ohio.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Interscholastic MeetBy James Weber Linn, '97From 1902 to 1917 the best interscholastictrack meet held anywhere was held at theUniversity of Chicago field. The war interfered with it for three years. In 1921it was staged again. This year, on Alay 27,it will be held for the eighteenth time, andfrom all indications more remarkable preparatory school athletes from a w der rangeof country will appear in it than have everbefore been gathered together for competition.Four weeks before the meet, entries hadalready been received from seventeen different states. Although the meet has beenwon by teams from California, Kansas, andPennsylvania, and although the individualpoint winners of the past have come fromCalifornia, Washington, Oklahoma, Kansas,Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Georgia andPennsylvania, etc., as well as from Illinois,nevertheless entrants from seventeen statesa month before the meet makes the eighteenth affair range appear more astonishingthan ever.Nearly all the past records are equallyastonishing. The mile at 4:33, the half at1:58, and the quarter at 51% are about theweakest. The dash records stand at §j>$and 2\ji, hurdles at 15% and 24^, shot andhammer (12 lb.) at 50 feet ll/2 inches and194 respectively, and the pole vault at 12feet 7rS inches; and those marks are fairlytypical of absolutely first rate colleges' performances.Last year for the first time the meet wasdivided into two sections, one for highschools and one for academies. This division will continue, as it gives the academiesfairer competition. Sixteen competed lastyear, and 101 high schools.A large number of the best track athletes Chicago has ever had. have appeared inthese meets in the past — Eckersall, Hogen-son, Davenport, Wallie Steffen, Phil Corn-stock, Ed. Parry, Ned Merriam, Ray Camp-hell, < ieorge Otis, Glenn Tenney, DeweyKnight, Jack Agar, Charley Uiggins andPercy Graham — to mention a few only.They come to compete; they take- a look atthe surrounding-, test the hospitality and friendliness of the undergraduates, and whenthey graduate from preparatory school theyenter here.Which is of course the idea. Nobodysupposes the meet is arranged purely forphilanthropic purposes. It is planned toshow the best type of young Americanmanhood from all over the country whatsort of an institution the University of Chicago is. There is no hocus-pocus in it. No"inducements," in the way of promises ofjobs or easy money, have ever been madeto any competitor in one of these meets todraw him into the LTniversity. Studentsand alumni who are interested in our athletic appearances show the boys what Chicago looks like. If the institution and itsopportunities, its efficiency, its convenienceand its beauty, are not sufficient "inducement," there is not more to be said.The trouble with LTniversity of Chicagoalumni is that they leave one backward inthis matter. The very men who complainlike ravens about our teams where they donot win "championships" are too proud andtoo satisfied to turn a wheel in showing fineyoung fellows what Chicago is and has.Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Alichigan, Illinois, organize special bodies to the one endof advertising their athletic advantages;they rake the country for boys who will belikely to distinguish themselves in athletics.We sit back, and even when five hundredboys are our guests, remark, "Well, whathave J got to do with it?"You have everything to do with it. Whatis a University ~? Its Alumni? If they arenot the product of a University, what is?Those of us at the Lmiversity want everyalumnus in or near Chicago who thinksathletics interesting and valuable to attendthe Interscholastic. Take a day off fromgolf: you will putt better the next week.Don't ask why. or what you can do. Ifyou can't do anything else, you can showthe coming generation what the training ofthe LTniversity did for the last; and thatought to be advertisement enough of itsvalue.ALUMNII CO Prominent Alumni— +David A. Robertson, A.B., '02The Class of 190.2 celebrates its twentiethanniversary this June. The celebration,which includes initiationinto the "Shanties," is incharge of "Dave" Robertson, president of theclass in the Junior yearand now the Acting-President of "Naughty-two." We have thusfar presented alumni ofprominence in variousparts of the country. Itis fitting and proper,therefore, to re-introduce our readers to oneof our several prominentalumni whose life workis associated with AlmaMater, especially as he isacting as one of the hostsat the coming June gathering. "Dave" has done• so many things for theUniversity, however, thatit would be impossible torecord them all in thebrief space allotted forthis biographical bit.David Allan Robertson was born October 17,1880, in Chicago, attended Central Park School and John Marshall High School, and then, after four busyyears at Chicago, was graduated A.B. inJune, 1902. He not only won election to PhiBeta Kappa and a graduate Fellowship inEnglish, but a record of his many under-gradute activities would surprise you.Just a few: Member of the Dramatic Club—he played leading parts, such as Shylock in"The Merchant of Venice"; on the editorialstaffs of the "Weekly," the "Monthly Maroon," and the Cap and Gown; artist andcartoonist, also, for these publications; activein oratorical and debating contests; President of the Senior College Council. Actor.writer, artist, orator, administrator, student— that was David A. twenty odd years ago.As evidence that he has never lost his interest in undergraduate affairs, he long servedon the Reynolds Club board, is an honorary member of the Blackfriars, and thisyear's Cap and Gown is dedicated to him.In 1906 he was appointed Secretary to thePresident — a position which he held withhigh ability and distinction for fourteenyears. During that period he continuedteaching and rose to Associate Professor in English, giving notable courses on Shakespeare and on Contemporary Literature. Inaddition, he was secretary of LTniversity College two years, editor ofThe LTniversity Recordfor six years, head ofHitchcock Hall severalyears, Director of PublicLectures, Secretary ofthe LTniversity War Service, Secretary of the Association of AmericanUniversities, Secretary ofthe University Orchestral Association, servedas President of Beta ofIllinois Chapter of PhiBeta Kappa, and is President of the Rennais-sance Society. He wrotea volume on our 1916"Q u a r t e r CentennialCelebration," to whichsuccessful celebration hisefforts contributed much,and the "Official GuideBook" of the LTniversity,now in its 4th edition.He has also written forvarious periodicals.On December 6, 1906,he married Aliss AnneK n o b e 1, of Chicago.have one child, David Al-the University ElementarySchool. Air. and Airs. Robertson receivestudents at their home at Sunday afternoonteas, just as they used to when at Hitchcock Hall. Their "hobbies" are travel andthe stud}- of art.In 1920 Air. Robertson was made Deanof the Colleges of Arts, Literature andScience. Dean Robertson's report to thePresident, on the place of the College inthe LTniversity, published in our Alarchnumber, proved of deep interest to allalumni. He is a member of the Quadrangle Club, the LTniversity Club, and ofPhi Gamma Delta fraternity. At the ageof 34 he received his first offer of a college presidency; other similar offers, andoffers to teach at eastern and western universities, have been extended him. But heprefers to remain at Chicago, for, as heputs it, "I'd rather be a doorkeeper in thehouse of my God than a dweller in thetents of wickedness."David A.

The club plansto present a program of one-act plays latethis month.Senior activities have been varied. Theannual moustache race, won by EdwinAhern, was followed by several luncheons,teas, and mixers at which members of thefaculty spoke. The Senior Gift to the University has not yet been decided upon. Theclass is also sponsoring an entertainmentin connection with the Interscholastic meetAlay 27.A series of concerts during the latter partof April, one by the Capella Choir of Northwestern University, one by the UniversityGlee club, and one by the Swift and Company Alale Chorus, for the benefit of theLTniversity Settlement and other charitableorganizations, netted $600. Lecturers ofthe month included five speakers in TheDaily Alaroon's series on "American Journalism" — Robert Park, James Weber Linn,Robert Alorse Lovett, Karl E. Harriman,editor of the Red Book, and Richard At-water, '11, columnist for the Chicago Evening Post.

"A man who canbetter recall the names, faces, habits, andcollege experiences ofmore Chicago alumnithan any other mortal!"(Prolonged cheers). Andwho is he? "He is, ladiesand gentlemen, HarryEnglish, manager of theReynolds Club for wellnigh twenty years — andby Harry, he's there!"(Roars of applause).Thus, doubtless, sometremulous toastmastermay well toast him, andthus, equally doubtless,would the "introduction"be vociferously receivedby throngs of alumniwho remember AlanagerHarry. However, to thebusiness of the moment —Harry English wasborn on September 7th,just as the Civil War waspassing into the Department of History in 1865.H i s birthplace wasBrooklyn, New York,and still is. Throughouthis early education hisgeneral aim was toward becoming an engineer; but Air. Fatesomehow kept on pulling away the target,so that his aim never resulted in hitting theengineerial bullseye. In the course of hisyounger days Harry temporarily entertainedjobs "too numerous to mention," as he dismisses it; but his general drift was particularly in club management. His career findshim trending westward. While in Detroit,Michigan, he was married to Miss AlargaretHartley, of Detroit.It was on September 29th, 1904, that HarryEnglish was appointed manager of the Reynolds Club. The Club had been openedabout ten months previously, but English,who was first in charge of the billiard room,was the first general manager appointed.From the very day of his appointment theClub has been operating successfully. Indeed, under his careful attention it has notonly widely extended its services and activities but has, in addition, accumulated quitea surplus of funds, now set aside in the nature of a Club endowment.Harry has always had the fine faculty ofHarry Englishworking in harmony with the student club-officers, and has kept the club ideal beforethe thousands who have made up its membership during its history. When the Clubstarted, its membershipwas less than 300; nowit is over 1,000; and, onoccasion, it has risenclose to 1,500. Englishcan relate many interesting incidents of the earlydays. He tells, for instance, how PresidentHarper, ever eager tolearn how the new clubwas meeting the needsof the students, wouldfrequently visit him and,sitting up late at nightsin the billiard room, askall kinds of questionsabout the Club's affairsand progress. Likewise,President Judson has always evidenced keenestinterest in the service theClub renders to theyoung men of the University.Harry English, ofcourse, possesses ahobby — fishing. If hecould only collect, at onetime, all the big onesthat "got away," theEnglish Fisheries, lube -the world's largestWhen he retires he ex-corporated, wouldfish firm — maybe.pects to do considerable fishing on his Indiana farm.Scarcely an alumnus who has ever returned during the year to the Quadranglesbut what manages to include a visit withManager English at the Reynolds Club. Literally hundreds have done so. And he always remembers and welcomes them. Ashe says, "It's not my club — it's theirs — forstudents and alumni." He reminds them ofmany of their "youthful stunts," of whichthey have, perhaps, forgotten, and thus dexterously dips them into the fountain ofyouth. And when Reunions come — well, allthe fellows make it a point to see Harry.And Harry, be sure, makes it a point to havethe Club wholly at the service of returning alumni.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEViews of Other UniversitiesStanford UniversityFacade of the Memorial Church, facing theinner Quadrangle Type of Arcades connecting all StanfordUniversity buildingsLeland Stanford, Jr.,UniversityLeland Stanford, Jr., LTniversity,was founded in 1891, the same yearin which the new University ofChicago was organized. It is frequently known as Stanford University, and is located at Stanford,California. The views of Stanford,shown on this page, reveal itsunique and interesting style otarchitecture — a style that carriesback to the early times of theSpaniards in America. Stanfordhas a faculty membership of 300,and has about 3,000 students. Itnow ranks among the leading universities in America.Gateway at end of main Quadrangle2.59JS m^ ^ Ml m Ek MAOutstanding among the athletic events ofthe month is the terrific punishment theball team has been getting from everyoneit meets. The A^aroon team is down at thebottom of the column, with three conferencedefeats and no victories, and the indicationsall point to permanent residence in lastplace. Michigan beat Chicago, 9-1; Illinois,10-2, and Purdue, 5-2. Those are the onlyconference games played so far, but thereare more coming, presumably with thesame result. Butler, coached by Page, beatChicago 11-0. Armour was beaten, 4-3,for one of the few victories of the season.Coach Norgren has done a whole lotbetter with his material than the scoreswould indicate. To begin with, the weatherwas so bad that the players could not getoutside until late in April, and then theydodged rain. Other schools, particularlyIllinois and Michigan, have the advantageof a good place for indoor work, and aspring training trip. Until recently, because of lack of practice, the Chicago menwere weak at the plate, but they have shownsome improvement with practice. Theirfielding has also picked up as they got inmore work. The chief difficulty is that thepitching has been poor and will continueto be bad.With bad pitching, a college ball club isparticularly helpless. Captain Dixon, a firstbaseman, pitched against Purdue, and didthe best work of the season.Captain Dixon at first is a very fine fielder,and is a fair hitter. Yardley, behind theplate, is average; second base is quite aproblem. Several men have been tried, butnone have done very well. Fedor at shortis a reliable man, and as good a hitter asthere is on the team. Curtis fields thirdacceptably, but doesn't hit very much.Geertsma plays right field, Cole center andSchultz left. Schultz is a good hitter andfields nicely; Cole fields all right, but hisarm is still bad. Altogether, it is not avery hopeful looking ball team.The track team is picking up, and ismuch stronger than it was indoors. AtPenn, the mile team of Pyott. McFarland,Jones, and A. Brickman took third, andmight have won, had it not been eleventhfrom the pole. A mistake as to the finishline cut the Maroons out of a second orthird in the 880. At Drake, on the sameday, Krogh led in Yates of Illinois on thefirst mile of the Illinois' record-breaking-four mile relay, but the rest of the Chicagoteam was unable to hold the pace. McFarland in the dashes is quite an addition:Jones is in form in the hurdles and dashes; Cletus ("Smoke") Dixon, '22, First Base,Captain 1922 Baseball TeamA. Brickman is always a contender in thehurdles, and has developed into a goodbroad jumper; Krogh in the mile, Redmonin the hammer, are the other reliables.The team should get more points in theconference this year than it has for severalseasons past.The tennis team is composed of Frankenstein, A. A. Stagg, Jr., Gates, and Evans.It has defeated Northwestern, NorthwesternCollege, and several local teams, and lostto the LTniversity of Southern Californiatourists. Frankenstein and Stagg are afair combination in the doubles, and maycome through, unless the class is unexpectedly good.George Yardley, of Oak Park, waselected basketball captain, and seven letterswere given out for the 1922 season, toHallidav. Yardley, Romney, Hurlburt, Dickson, McGuire and Stahr. Yardley, a guard,and Dickson, forward, are the only menleft for next year.The swimming team re-elected EdwardBlinks captain. The championship waterbasketball team elected Livingston Hall.who played a star game this year at guard,as their leader. ., .A golf team that looks very promisingis soon to begin competition, led by GeorgeHartman, one of the best of the youngerplayers of the Middle West; the other members are Charles McGuire, William McGuire and Ford. The conference is to beheld June 19-22 at one of the Chicagocourses.W. V.

Frank McNair,Harris Trust & Savings Bank,Chicago, Illinois.Dear Mr. McNair:Your gratifying letter of the 19th, reducingagain the amount to be paid to the AlumniCouncil, as provided in the budget, is received. This reduction is a substantial oneand at a time when any reduction is important; but this work which your Committee isengaged in seems to me to have a significance of still greater importance in enlisting the cooperation of a body of young menand women actively and interestedly, onwhom the future of the institution largelyrests.I will take the pleasure of submitting yourcommunication to the Board.Very truly yours,Wallace Heckman.A Bequest to the AJumni FundAlumni Secretary,The LTniversity of Chicago.Dear Air. Pierrot:I want to leave to the Alumni Fund theprincipal sum under some insurance policies— after my family have received the incomefrom the same during their lives — becausethe University was good enough to makesome exceptions in granting me a degrcjbefore entering the Navy.While I'm a salesman in the field of education, I'm a : trong believer in insurancewhich, I have found through some study,can serve many purposes. The way I havein mind might be the only way I could everleave anything to the University.They say $9 out of $10 that are left comefrom insurance policies. But people generally, failing to take advantage of the options of settlement under the contracts, forget that the average estate is dissipated inseven years.When the principal is left with the company as a trust fund and the income paidover to the beneficiary in the form of interest earnings (instead of the principalbeing paid in a lump sum), the benefit tothe beneficiary is almost as great as whenthe proceeds ol the policy are paid under acertain number of installments certain, theprincipal being dissipated.J know of a small college nearby that a friend of mine is protecting under his insurance to the extent of more than $5. ,000. Iwonder if Chicago's Alumni Fund could notbe substantially increased through the yearsby the proceeds of insurance which mightotherwise be foolishly and quickly dissipated.Some time I hope to have the pleasureof meeting ^ou when I am in Chicago. MyMagazine is still reaching me through 4.501Clifton avenue there, where my sister readsit before sending it on.With best wishes, I am,Cordially yours,W. A. Black, A. AI.

Pierrot:At the last Alumni meeting of the CedarFalls-Waterloo Club, I was asked to leadthe group in singing. We sang a considerable number of the University songs. TheAlma Alater was the most satisfactory. Itstrikes me that that is a very fine song, andI believe it would help us immensely in ourmeetings if we had copies enough for all.Community singing is growing steadily inthis section and we are developing a verycommendable attitude toward successfulsinging by setting out to have the peoplecommit the songs to memory.During the twenty-five years since I wasa student in the University of Chicago, mytime has been devoted exclusively to musiceducation here in the Teachers College, andin recent years, I have been emphasizing verystrongly community singing in all sorts ofgroups such as Farm Bureau Aleetings,Commercial Clubs, Teachers' Associations,etc.1 should consider it a privilege to do allI can in promoting the interests of our CedarPalls-Waterloo Club by making singing asuccess. 1 can assure you that some printedcopies will be very much appreciated.I spent but one year in the LTniversity ofChicago, and that as a special student. Iwas privileged to select such work as Iwanted, and while my year was broken onaccount of sickness and death of a friendso that I did not have very much credit toshow for my year's work, it was a veryprofitable investment for me. I attendedPresident Harper's Sunday morning classLETTER BOX 261in Bible study; I was permitted to scheduleas a visitor in one of Dr. Dewey's courses; Itook work with Dr. Moulton, and studiedpsychology with Dr. Angel for two quarters.On account of my limited stay at the University, I have never attended the CedarFalls-Waterloo Club meetings until thisyear. Some of my friends persuaded meto attend. I think attending the club meetings will become a habit with me and Ishall be glad to express, in a small way, mygratitude to the institution, by doing what1 can in helping the Alma Alater song tofunction effectively.Very truly yours,C. A. Fullerton, Director of Music,Iowa State Teachers College,Cedar Falls, Iowa.About Caste and Gods in IndiaLcffric, Kotagiri,Nilgiries District, Ind.'a.March 22, 1922,Dear Mr. Pierrot:If there are any persons in the LTniversity,either students or members of the faculty,who would care to correspond with me aboutthese "hill people," I will be glad to correspond with them. They could help me byshowing me new methods of studying them.I am reminded, as I write, of an incidentthat happened to the late Dr. Hendersonand me, when we were boys in Lafayette, Indiana. We must have been about fifteen andwe went together into the store of a wholesale merchant. The merchant said to us,"When are you boys going to stop studying?" Henderson replied, "Not till our hairis gray." He did not stop before he wascalled to higher service, and my hair ispretty gray and I have not begun to thinkof stopping.Beside the great mountain chains whichyou have all heard about, there are smallhill sections, the Nilgiries, the Chevarois, theAnamallas, the Palnies, and I doubt notothers with which I am not familiar. Doubtless they are all occupied by tribes, as ourNilgiries are.Is it any wonder that we who have lived along time in India, in my line of work, inaddition to our chief errand of preachingChrist, get a bit enthusiastic over the linesof study that India has to offer?Take the question of caste. The divisionis not only that of the Brahmin against theKomiti (Alerchant) and they two against theSudra (Farmer and Laborer). The censustells us there are 400 varieties of Brahminsand 800 varieties of Sudras.Take the gods. You have heard of Bra-mah, Vishnu, Sira and Krishna. Those arethe gods that form the Hindu Pantheon.They have been studied by the Brahmins forages.But— there are about 720,000 villages inIndia. Thousands of these villages have local goddesses and a few gods. These god-* desses are all malevolent and most of thegods are as well. These are all worshiped byceremonies which have slight resemblancesto each other but more differences. Thesevillage deities have had but little attentionpaid to them till the missionaries took up thestudy lately. It was beneath the dignity ofthe Brahmin to study them. He called them"mad gods." The people who worship themare too ignorant to study them. They bringon the people all the ills that flesh is heirto, and receive most of the worship of thepeople. The Church of England Bishop ofMadras has made a most interesting study of105 of these deities and Dr. Elmore of Lincoln, Nebraska, made the same subject thetheme of his thesis for his Ph. D. degree.I think there are no other books dealing withthese local village divinities.Well, this letter must not resemble Tennyson's Brook and go on forever. This is agood place to erect a dam.Yours very sincerely,Frank H. Levering, '72.Suggests Improvements in the Magazine911 Peoria Life Bldg.Peoria, 111., April 23, 1922.Alumni Council,LTniversity of Chicago,Chicago, 111.My dear Air.

Wilczvnski.The Educational Value of Moving PicturesEducational films as regular equipment forteachers, moving pictures as substitutes forhooks and lectures in schools and colleges,lantern slides as substitutes for maps andcharts have recently received much publicdiscussion, and journals have been established for promoting visual education as thecoming form of teaching.In order to secure some carefully balanced judgments on the value of all thesevisual devices for use in teaching pupils, theCommonwealth Fund, of New York, hasgiven a fund of $10,000 for the use of Professor Frank N. Freeman, of the University ofChicago, in the systematic study of the educational value of various kinds of pictures.Professor Freeman recently presented apaper before the Society for Educational Research which took the ground that many ofthe claims of film advocates are not wellfounded.Honor to Professor E. H. Moore(By II. E. Slaught, Ph.D, 'OS)At the two hundred twenty-second regularmeeting of the American Alathematical Society, held at the University of Chicago.April 14, 15, 1922, there was celebrated thetwenty-fifth anniversary of the founding ofthe Chicago Section of this Society. Thehistory of this Chicago Section is almostcoincident with that of the University ofChicago, where the great majority of itsforty-nine meetings have been held. Thesemeetings, which began in 1896 with the reading of fourteen scientific papers at the firstinformal session, gradually increased in at-tendancc and importance until they wererecognized by the Society as of co-ordinatestanding with those of the parent organiza-NOTES— HONOR PROFESSOR MOOREtion in New York and were officially designated as regular Western meetings of theSociety. The one just held was the seventeenth and largest of this kind, over onehundred members being in attendance.The young and vigorous Department ofMathematics of the University of Chicagoin 1896, with its remarkable trio of leaders,Professor E. H. Moore, Oscar Bolza andHeinrich Maschke, naturally assumed theimportant role of leadership in fosteringmathematical research in the Aliddle West,as reflected in the phenomenal growth ofthe Chicago Section. To those who know/Professor Moore, scientifically and personally, it is no surprise that he at once became,and still remains, the leader of leaders inthis great work. It is universally recognized that he stands quite alone as regardsthe scope and strength of his influence onthe development of mathematics in America,not only through his own researches butalso through his impress upon the hundredand more men and women who have goneout with the Chicago doctorate in mathematics, upon the hundreds of Chicagomasters and other graduate students, andupon all others who have directly or indirectly come within his dynamic presence andcaptivating friendship.It was a foregone conclusion that anycelebration of the last quarter of a centuryof mathematical activity in this countrywould center about Professor Aloore, andhence a committee of his former studentsbegan more than a year ago to considerwhat kind of a testimonial would be mostappropriate to present to him on this occasion. It was at once decided that noneof the ordinary forms of gold or silver gifts,nor even a painted portrait, would adequately express the sentiments of his grateful admirers. They sought rather sometoken which would for all time be a livingand dynamic force for perpetuating his namein connection with his beloved science.Hence they decided to raise the sum of twothousand dollars among his former studentsand his associates in the Chicago Section,as the nucleus of an endowment fund to beused for assisting in the publication ofmathematical treatises and researches inAmerica — a cause for which there is cryingneed of support. (Already those outside ofthis Chicago group are seeking to join incontributing to this fund and there are indications that it may grow into an endowmentof large proportions as the years go by.)However, the committee in their deliberations did not lose sight of the personal andfriendlv elements involved in these contributions, and hence they prepared a statementsetting these forth in intimate terms as aprologue to the dedication of the fund. ThisPresentation Scroll was engrossed by Air. C. L. Ricketts of Chicago in the style ofthe illuminated manuscripts of the ItalianRenaissance, on the finest handmade paperthat can be produced, and bound in beautiful maroon leather surmounted by a solidgold monogram of the letters E. H. M. Itwas felt by the committee that nothingshort of the very best in material and workmanship would suffice for this PresentationScroll, and it is believed that no illuminatorin America could have excelled in the resultwhich he produced. Arrangements will bemade for exhibiting the scroll to members ofthe faculties and their friends. The scrollcontains the names of one hundred seventy-four contributors to the fund.The following is the text of the scroll:professor Citatum gating* jffloore^>£f)olar, &zat\)tv anb JfrienbConscious of the great influence which you have exercised upon the development of mathematical sciencethroughout this country, particularly in the MiddleWest, during the last twenty-five years,Admiring the outstanding qualities of your researches in various fields of mathematics,Crateful for the inspiration and encouragementwhich you have given to those who have come to theUniversity of Chicago to study mathematics.Recognizing the large contribution which you havemade to the creation and the' growth of the ChicagoSection of the American Mathematical Society, andDeeply appreciative of the friendship which, duringmany years, you have bestowed upon those who havehad the good fortune to know you;The undersigned members of the American Mathematical Society, formerly students of mathematics atthe University of Chicago, or members of long standing in the Chicago Seetion, have wished to use theopportunity afforded by the twenty-fifth anniversarymeeting of the Chicago Section to present to you atestimonial, which is intendexl to link your name inthe years to come with the development of mathematics in this country.To this end they have contributed to a fund whichis to be offered for trusteeship to the American Mathematical Society upon the following conditions:The fund is to be known as the Eliakim HastingsMoore Fund;The interest on the fund is to be used at the discretion of the Council of the Society, and upon therecommendation of a committee appointed from timeto time for this purpose, in furtherance of such mathematical interest as(a) The publication of important mathematicalbooks and memoirs;(b) The award of prizes for important contributions to mathematics;It being further recommended that during the nextten years preference be given to the former, and thatpublication of Professor Moore's researches in General Analysis or in other fields shall have precedenceover all other claims;The fund is to be kept intact by the AmericanMathematical Society except in so far as it is usedto aid in the publication of Professor Moore's researches. For this special purpose a part of the principal, not exceeding one-third, may be used, provided the interest on the remainder he allowed to accumulate until the fund hu> been restored to itsoriginal value.(Here follow the names of 174 contributors.)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEy "....— nil — im., nn nn „n . ,.,. ... |g g, ||M nn u|| un [|U ^ ^ ^ [).| ||n ||u u|) n|) un u[[ |[n „„ nr| nn „„ .... ,, (*tThe School of Education |Departments of Geography, Mathematics, and Natural Science. jGeographyRecent reorganization of courses in theDepartment of Geography of the School ofEducation seeks (1) to bring experts in education into contact with the ideals, aims, andview-point of modern geography, (2) to acquaint trained geographers with moderneducational ideals, theories, and practices asapplied to their subject, and (3) to furtherand direct research in educational problemsdealing with geography. To help accomplish the first purpose, a new graduate-course is offered for general administratorsand supervisors. It is entitled "Investigations of Problems of Geography Instruction." To contribute toward the secondpurpose, "Problems of Geographic Instruction in the Normal School" is scheduled foradvanced students of geography. In accord with the third purpose, some graduatestudents are conducting, under the directionof the department, research which promisesto be constructive and far-reaching in itsresults.The opportunity to develop the phasesof work indicated has been greatly enlargedby the close cooperation existing betweenthis department and the Department ofGeography in Rosenwald Hall. To illustrate, graduate work in geography in theSchool of Education is accepted in partialfulfillment of the requirements for a higherdegree in geography.Heavy summer registration necessitatesenlarging the department for that quartereach year. In the summer of 1921, Air. R.D. Calkins, now president of the NationalCouncil of Geography Teachers, was theadditional instructor. For the summer of1922, Mr. George T. Miller, editor of theJournal of Geography, will be the visiting-member of the department.The department enjoys unrivaled opportunities for making contributions in the fieldof educational geography, and hopes tomake them through growth and progressalong the lines indicated.MathematicsIt is now three years since Air. Breslichand the Mathematics Department of theUniversity High School set definitely aboutthe problem of organizing a junior high-school course in mathematics. The problem is rapidly approaching dual solution inthe form of three texts embodying the departmental solution. Two ol the texts arealready completed and in press, and thethird is in tentative form. The course has been painstakingly tested by classroom trial,has been smoothed out and adapted closelyto the conditions and needs of the age-levelsin question. This new course must surelybe a significant contribution to mathematicaleducation.A very timely problem of practical mathematical pedagogics is how to give properrecognition to the work of superior pupils.This problem has for some time been engaging the attention of Mr. Hoge and Air.Breslich of the University High School whoare giving systematic and intensive study tosuitable supplementary project material. Thefindings of their study will appear as amagazine article toward the close of theschool year. The conclusions cannot fail tobe widely read and highly useful.Air. Breslich is also putting the finaltouches on an important summary of thedevelopment and the results of the University High School curriculum in mathematicssince the beginning of the School of Education. This important paper will appear asa part of the new yearbook of the University High School.Mr. Myers has recently put through thepress of Scott, Foresman and Company alittle volume on correlated mathematics entitled Elementary Algebraic Geometry, anda Set of 130 Classroom Drill Cards on asmany type-features of algebra, prepared byMr. J.

Alyers is occupied atpresent with a new set of practice exercisecards for algebra, similar to those of Stu-debaker for arithmetic, and with a revisionoi his arithmetics.Natural ScienceA new course is being given in the Department of Natural Science this year entitled "Investigations in Science Instruction." The course is listed as Education 84and is one of several courses offered by thespecial departments in the College of Education.The purpose of this course is to providea survey of the teaching of science; first,for superintendents, principals, or other supervising officers so that they may gain asufficient knowledge of the aims of scienceteaching, the results of investigations ofmaterials for the course of study, methodsof instruction and tests, to intelligently supervise the science work; secondly, forstudents desiring to i\i) research work inthe problems of science teaching that theymay have a broad outlook on the wholeOF EDUCATION NOTESfield before devoting themselves to one special phase of the matter.Two new books in the University ofChicago Nature Study and Science Teaching Series have just appeared. "The Teaching of General Science," by W. L. Eiken-berry, and "A Naturalist in the Great LakesRegion," by E. R. Downing. Mr. Eiken-berry's book gives a brief history of thegeneral science movement, discusses thecauses that led to it, and presents the problem of teaching the subject. It is not abook of detailed methods, but it endeavorsto give the reader a vision of the field sothat he may appreciate what general scienceis endeavoring to do for the pupil. "A Naturalist in the Great Lakes Region" tracesthe geological development and the evolution of the physiographic features. It thentries to show how the distribution of plantsand animals in the region is determined bysuch physiographic features. It is an attempt to interpret the significance of thecommonplace environment.ij»i— n— ii— ii— w— «i— «"—"—«"—"—»"—»«— w—«"—"4'J.

CobbDonor of Cobb Lecture HallTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES (Volume 1),By Thomas Wakefield Goodspeed (TheUniversity of Chicago Press).In this new volume the author has rendered a three-fold service. He has helpedto perpetuate the memory of a number ofthe men who contributed out of their timeami means to the establishment of theUniversity of Chicago. He has set downmany incidents of historical importance inthe chronicle of the city. But, most of all,he has created for the reader, out of the life-stories of the University's benefactors, aseries of human interest pictures of menwho once exerted tremendous influence intheir respective local fields.It was Air. Goodspeed's desire to tellsomething of the men who helped to makethe University in order that succeedinggenerations might not merely associatetheir names with the campus structures orthe college endowments which now areactual monuments to their past existence.Men like Marshall buhl, Sidney A Kent, :ago magazineReviewsCharles J. Hull, Silas B. Cobb, E. NelsonBlake, George C. Walker, and William B.Ogden were responsible in no little degreefor making possible the creation in Chicagoof a great university. Their endorsementof the project and their contributions to ithelped to gain for the university the endowment offered by Mr. Rockefeller. Together with John Crerar, La Verne Noyes,Joseph Bond, Gustavus F. Swift, JosephReynolds, Charles Hitchcock, NathanielColver, Eli Buell Williams, Hobart W.Williams, Frederick A. Smith, and HiramW. Thomas they are now commemorated inthis volume of sketches.As these men were all citizens of Chicago,and many of them among the earlier pioneers, the stories of their rise to prominence are intimately concerned with thehistory of the city. Some of them weremerchants, some bankers, dealers in realestate, lawyers, clergymen, manufacturers,presidents of railroads, and heads of greatcorporations. Alost of them began theircareers in the days when the city numberedonly a few hundred people. Their achievements and successes were thus closely associated with the development and growth ofChicago. Alost of them were known to theauthor, who has been able to include in thesketches details of their civic life that willprove to be of considerable historicalinterest.The life stories of these men read verymuch like fiction. Practically without exception the fortunes they made were builtupon the smallest beginnings. Several ofthese men had little or no education. Someof them came te> Chicago in wagons, someon schooners from Eastern ports. Alost ofthem began to carve out their destinies withtheir hands, in trades. All of them passedthrough the series of hard times that cameupon the country a generation or more ago,and all of them came to have a great faithin the future of the city where they hadlived and prospered. Air. Goodspeed'skindly and intimate sketches bring out thesignificant factors in the development oftheir caracters, as well as the importantcontributions that they made to Americanlife.The sketches which made up this volumeappeared from time to time in the LTniversity Record. Each is accompanied by aportrait of the subject. The book is published uniformly with Air. Goodspeed's Ahistory of the University of Chicago, and isdesigned as the first volume of a continuingseries.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE^IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIII||||||||||||||||||||||,||M|||MI!IHIIIIIIIIIIIIIII|||||||||||||||||||„|,,|,|.Co W$t Alumni{Personal)You have been our good patrons in thepast.

LOVE,ManagerTelephone 1353-W 62 Broadway Fargo, North DakotaTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAll in the day's workOREGON was having a bad spell ofweather — rain, snow, highwater, winds.Railroad service was brought to astandstill. Telephone and telegraphwires were down. Highways and roadswere blocked. Many towns were isolated. Meat foods were needed.A Swift salesman, on his rounds, gotcaught in a slide on the Columbia RiverHighway. He was compelled to abandon his machine. But he did not sitdown and wait for clear weather.He made his way back to Portland ina small boat, loaded another boat with20,000 pounds of Swift's products, anddelivered them to his customers allalong the Columbia River, where snowlay from three to five feet deep.He thought nothing of it. It was allin the day's work. Any Swift manwould have done the same. That iswhat Swift Service means to all of oursalesmen. The duty of serving hiscustomers was a serious responsibilitythat he had to meet.We feel that Swift's meats— "Premium" Ham, "Premium" Bacon, and alsoBrookfield Butter and Eggs — must bedelivered, whether or no, to your dealersall over the country who depend on usto keep them supplied with meat.In our packing plants, traffic departments, branch houses; in the office,among traveling salesmen; from one endof the organization to the other, there isthis same responsibility of service, thissame matter-of-fact, taken-for-grantedfaithfulness to a trust and a responsibility to find a way out of any difficultieswhich may seem to prevent the dailyservice to our customers.Swift & Company, U. S. A.Founded 1868A nation-wide organization owned by more than45,000 shareholders.

Does your P.M. scheduleread like this?If your burning- ambition is to excel as an all-around societyman, you couldn't have planned your evenings better. Suchpersistence will win out over the indolence of the rank andfile, for as the poet says,The heights by great men reached and keptWere not attained by sudden flight,But they while their companions sleptWere toiling upward in the night.' 'But if you intend to make your mark in engineering orbusiness, don't expect that supremacy on the waxed floorwill help when you start hunting a job.Not that you need swing to the other extreme as a 'grind"or a hermit. Let's concede it is all right to minor in sociabilities — but certainly it is only common sense to major inthe math and sciences and English that will mean bread andbutter to you later on.Remember this — the harder you work right now in gettinga grip on fundamentals, the easier things will come to youwhen you must solve still bigger problems. And if you takeit easy now — well, look out for the law of compensation.It's up to you. While you've got the chance, seize it, digin, plug hard. It will pay — in cold cash.This advertisement is one of a series in studentpublications. It may remind alumni of their opportunity to help the undergraduate, by suggestionand advice, to get more out of his four years. /Done It For The Boys, Too!Now boys can get Capper & Capper Clothes!Step right into them with their first long trousers, and beginthe new life right.Just the same sort of clothes that weVe been providing forfathers and big brothers for years, and that have made men andboys know us for years as the store of fine clothing — really fine;authoritative and tailorish.We've been working around to it for quite a while.
