No. 8 UFor nearly three decades the progressbeing made in the fields of science,religion, and education has been carefully noted at the University of Chicagoand reflected in the journals publishedby the Press. In that time over twoand a quarter million copies of theseperiodicals have been sent out to all partsof the world to inform geologists, astronomers, sociologists, theologians, botanists,economists, philologians, and educatorsof the significant advances in their subjects.A number of these journals, the officialorgans of scientific societies, edited byrecognized authorities, have attainedworld-wide recognition. Their pages,illustrated with the best of plates, havetold of radical improvements, epoch-making researches, and educational discoveries.The publication of these journals is but oneof the various services performed by theUniversity of Chicago Press.2,268,000CopiesTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThree New Trusteesi ,._4Three new trustees of The University ofChicago were elected at the meeting of theBoard of Trustees on Tuesday, June 20th.The new trustees are: Air. Deloss C. Shull,of Sioux City, Iowa, and Air. Albert WilliamSherer, A. B. '06, in the Baptist group, andAir. William Scott Bond, Jr., Ph.B. '97, inthe non-Baptist group. The fact that twoof the new trustees are alumni makes thisannouncement of great interest to us all.This election will unquestionably meet withheartiest response and appreciation fromalumni everywhere. It is, indeed, onlyfurther evidence, if any were required, thatPresident Judson and our Trustees meanexactly what they say when they state thatnany of the responsibilities of advancing,he welfare of their Alma Mater must, inhue, fall more and more upon the greatbody of loyal alumni.Mr. Deloss C. Shull is a well-known corporation lawyer in Sioux City, where he haspracticed law since 1888. He is a man inmiddle life, and throughout his career hasbeen a prominent factor in Baptist denominational affairs. He was President of theNorthern Baptist Convention, and for yearshas been a staunch friend of education, andparticularly higher education. He is thefather of three alumni: Laurens C. Shull,'16, who was killed in the Creat War in 1918,Deloss P. Shull, '11, T. D. '12, and Henrv CShull, '14, J. D. '16. Mr. Shull has for manyyears been closely interested in Universityof Chicago affairs.Both of the new alumni trustees are sowell known to hundreds of alumni, havingbeen very prominent during their collegecareers and, since graduation, in AlumniCouncil, class, reunion, club, and otheralumni activities, that they require but little"introduction." William Scott Bond wasborn in Chicago, May 9, 1876. After attending Chicago public schools and Lake Forestand Beloit academies, he entered the University of Chicago in October, 1893, soonafter the new University opened its doors.He was graduated, Ph.B., April 1, 1897. Hethen studied law, took his LL.B. degree atKent College of Law, Chicago, in 1899, andwas admitted to practice at the Illinois Barin 1900. He then entered the real estateoffice of William A. Bond & Co., Chicago, becoming a member of that firm in 1909. In1916 he married Aland I. Moore, of Evanston, Illinois. He has been interested in University of Chicago Settlement and othercharitable and philanthropical work. He isa member of Psi LTpsilon fraternity.Albert William Sherer was born August10, 1883, in Chicago. After graduation fromChicago, where he obtained his A. B. degreein 1906, lie entered the advertising and publishing field, in which business he has beenengaged ever since. For the past sevenyears he has been with the Curtis Publishing Company, and is now in charge of theWestern advertising department of TheLadies Home Journal. On September 20,1911, he married Ethel Linda Van Nostrum,of Chicago. He is a member of Delta KappaEpsilon fraternity. Both "Bert" Sherer and"Billy" Bond, as they are known popularlyby many alumni, have been very successfulin their chosen business and are members ofseveral clubs and societies.At the same meeting, Harold H. Swift,Ph.B. '07, who has served for a number ofyears as Trustee, was elected President of theBoard of Trustees. He succeeds Air. .MartinA. Ryerson, who served as the Board's President for over thirty years.The news of this election was impartedto the Magazine just as our June issue wasto be released in tin- mails. Because thisimportant announcement was first made toour publication, and because, in many casesat least, it would bring the news first-handto our readers, it was fell ad\ isable to holdback this issue until this insertion could beprinted. Our readers will appreciate thisprivilege which was extended by the Boardof Trustees. Another notice of iln's electionwill appear in our July number.The new trustees ai.d the new Presidentof the Board will enter upon their dutieswith proved ability and zeal. They accept their responsibilities at a time whenthe University is soon to make one of thegreatest advances in her history, and theirservices will be rendered to Chicago in thehighest spirit of loyalty ami progress.

JUNE, 1922 No. 8At one of the numerous preliminary sessionsof the Reunion Committees, when ideas andsuggestions for the Reunion wereA Real being sought, Miss Lucy C. Driscoll,Idea '08, A.M. '09, who for some yearswas connected with the Chicago ArtInstitute, made a suggestion about our annualparades that at once won favor from all present. Miss Driscoll pointed out that, with themedieval architecture and gothic backgroundof the University, our alumni were offered aunique opportunity to stage, each year, amedieval pageant of beauty, color and distinction. Alumni parades at other institutionsare merely classes costumed as whim mightdictate; but at Chicago we could well plan towork out a parade that would soon developinto a fine medieval pageant — each class adopting some particular medieval garb — withstriking grotesque floats, with tournamenttrappings, bannered horsemen, and with suchpomp and ceremony that thousands would beglad to go many miles to witness it at Reuniontime.The suggestion came too late for carryingit out fully, but, in the brief time that remained before Alumni Day, the Parade Committee made "medieval plans" and succeededin giving the medieval pageant idea a goodstart this year. As far as possible old costumes, already adopted, were discarded oraltered, new ones were made, and, on thewhole, most of the classes appeared in someform of medieval dress. The results, in color,variety with harmony, and unique interest,fully justified the change.We hope to see the idea carried out morefully next year. It is worth the effort, forit means that Chicago alumni will not havemerely an ordinary costumed parade but a great pageant — a feature that, while givingthe parading classes "all the fun they want"will, at the same time, be a distinctive creation and will win national notice for ourannual gatherings.-Jf. $ :jcFew people, we rise to remark once more,fully realize the work required to "put over"a successful Reunion. Not havingThanks the Ringling Brathers among ourAgain! alumni, we are, of course, compelledto rely upon the services of inexperienced and non-professional alumni; theirloyalty and strenuous efforts largely make upfor lack of familiarity with running off a bigprogram, but inevitably some details thatmight be improved crop up suddenly at thelast moment, to combine with unanticipateddifficulties to keep things from going toosmoothly. The 1922 Reunion, on the whole,went off more smoothly than any large alumnigathering we have thus far handled. Tohonor, by naming, all those who contributedmuch to this success would require a list ofsome one hundred names. Particular mentionshould be made, however, of the excellentwork of Henry D. Sulcer, '05, Chairman ofthe Reunion Committee, Elizabeth Bredin, '13,and Mrs. Charlotte Viall Weiser, '14, of theParade Committee, Hans Hoeppner, '20, ofthe Supper Committee, of Herbert Zimmer-mann, '01, of the Shanties, and of ScottBrown, '97, and Stacy Mosser, '97, whoseefforts brought about the successful '97 classreunion. One very gratifying feature in thepreparation was the better class organizationthat was disclosed. The special anniversaryclasses— '97, '02, '07, '12, and '17— set a highstandard this year for class anniversary celebrations.2S.3:jsi; THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE*u— n.THE 1922 REUNIONIt is clear to those who attend our reunions that each year finds our annual gatherings more and more successful — in attendance, in definite program, in color andenthusiasm. The 1922 Reunion — thanks tothe efficient efforts of the Reunion Committees and the class officers — marked a realstep forward. From the Alumni Club FieldDay, on Wednesday, June 7, which startedthe program, to the Law School AssociationDinner a week later, which closed theevents, every event on the schedule wasthoroughly enjoyed.Over the RadioThe Alumni Club started the ball withsome clever golf matches, on Wednesday,out at Olympia Fields, in which FrankCoyle, '09, and Bob Harris, '09, walked offwith the prizes. Ralph W. Davis, '16, secretary of the club, was in charge of this gathering. An excellent dinner, somewherenear the 19th hole, ended this tee-party, tothe satisfaction of the club and the clubs.The next night Mr. Stagg was once againhappily surrounded by a fine crowd of "C" men, returned for the annual "C" Dinner.President Judson, as in the years past, addressed our athletics ancestors, and thenwas hurried away to town, where, over theradio, he spoke to "the world at large" —the first university president to lecture overthe radio — and took occasion to welcome allalumni back to the Quadrangles.'97 Sings at the SingFriday evening, June 9, found the fraternity houses crowded with returned alumni,and tuning up for the Sing. The weatherman faithfully kept his contract — never tohave rain during a Sing — with the resultthat a great crowd that filled HutchinsonCourt stopped, looked, and listened to thefraternity groups as they filed in and sangtheir songs. In the meantime, the class of'97 was holding its 25th Anniversary Dinnerat the Quadrangle Club, and then came overand, with Billy Bond leading, sang "1893,"the first song written by the first students atChicago. This was easily the big hit of theevening, if spontaneous and prolonged applause proves anything. According to theThe '97 TallyhoOne of the most striking features of the Alumni Paradebrating its 25th anniversary, the Class of ,(.)7 made a great :•Their tallyho deserved and won great applause. But anyhow-clid big things in a big way. was the tallyho of '97. Cele-howing throughout the Reunion.—'97 is a great class ; it alwaysTHE 1922 REUNION 287custom started last year, the fraternity observing its 25th anniversary was allottedlast place; Psi Upsilon, holding the honor,turned out a great crowd and ended thesinging features with a fine climax. Mr.Stagg then, amidst the cheering, awardedthe C blankets to the winners of the emblemfor 1921-1922, other honors were announced,and the Sing closed with the entire assemblysinging the Alma Mater.The Alumnae BreakfastAlumni Day, Saturday, June 10, was againstarted properly by a highly successful Alumnae Breakfast in Ida Noyes Hall, at 11:30a. m. Three hundred were in attendance. the whole parade was striking in its colorand general lively spirit. The parade washeaded by the artillery company of theMilitary Science Department and" the University Band. The class of '97 appeared in19th-century tallyho style, and was followed by the Shanties; '07 appeared with agigantic birthday cake with 15 candles; thefamous Midnight Special of 1912, after sixyears in the roundhouse, again puffed forthand furnished de luxe transportation for thatclass, while '17, garbed as usual as devils,had a medieval "hell-mouth." Other classescontributed to the gaiety of medievalism—particularly 1916, accompanied by a grind-organ, and 1920, with its mock band. The'02 Initiated into the ShantiesHere, my friends, we have John P. Mentzer, '98, President of the Shanties, placing theinitiation robes upon Herbert E. Fleming, President of '02, which class, on its 20th anniversary, as per custom, was duly initiated into the Shanty group. Fleming responded for'02 with a fine address on Shanty good-fellowship and loyalty.Mrs. Howard Willett, '07, president of theChicago Alumnae Club, presided. ProfessorJames H. Tufts talked on "Morals I HaveMet," and the Countess Edgerly-Korzybski,a noted portrait painter, spoke on "Manhoodof Humanity." Dean Elizabeth Wallace andMrs. Harry Pratt Judson also addressed thealumnae. The meeting then adjourned forthe Alumni Parade.The Parade Floats OnThe strenuous efforts of the Parade Com-mitte were obvious as the various classeslined up for the start. Every class was represented by larger numbers than appearedlast year; every class was attractively costumed, in some kind of medieval style, and Fengcr Higli School band was in the line-upand added martial strains that kept thesecond section of the procession in goodstep. Everybody in the parade enjoyed thefun — so much so that the parade, as a definite fixture on the Reunion program, is nowa matter of universal demand.Prizes AwardedAfter winding around the Quadrangles,and cheering President and Mrs. Judson,who reviewed the parade from the verandaof the President's House, the alumni circledStagg Field. The decision of the judges wasthen announced; 1907 won the prize bannerfor the best anniversary float, and 1922 won288 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe banner for the best costumed class thatwas not observing an anniversary.The Chicago-Purdue baseball game camenext on the program. Purdue won, 9-5, butfor eight innings the Chicago team keptahead with some good baseball — better, indeed, than the team has done this year — andso the defeat did not "mar the occasion."'01 Initiates '02After the game, the Shanty Ceremoniestook place. John P. Mentzer, '98, presidentof the Shanties, presided. President Judsontold of the "early days," and then HerbertZimmermann, '01, "initiated" the class of '02,on its twentieth anniversary, into theShanties. Herbert Fleming, President of'02, after being dressed up in the specialcap and gown, spoke for his class, dwellingupon the good-fellowship of the early days,and the purpose of the Shanties to keep upthe memories of Shanty days and fosterloyalty to the university. During the daythe beautiful, medieval Book of the Shantywas on view and was signed by the manytam-wearers who had assembled. This register book, to be kept during the year inHarper Library, is a notable contributionto the Reunion and alumni records, and asyears pass will hold the signatures of manydistinguished alumni.'07 Confers Degree on PrexyPerhaps the most amusing feature of theday was the ceremony conducted by '07, onthe occasion of its 15th anniversary. Usingthe large birthday-cake float as a platform,Harold H. Swift, president of the class, presided, assisted by Arthur G. I»ovee and JohnF. Moulds, "johnny" recited the highachievements of the class — achievementsthat seemed to well carry out the boastfulpromise at the time of its graduation.Arthur Bovee then tickled the audience withan "address" that contained a play on faculty names in '07 days. Upon numerousrequests — and having succeeded in extracting the manuscript from "Artie" — we passon his facultynious remarks to you:"Ladies and Gentlemen:"If education ever proved anything itproved '07 to be the class of the classes.As I shall elucidate, they had a faculty forachievement."In 1903 they entered the CHASE of wisdom with very GOODS PEED. Theircharacters were MOULTON in the fires o\enthusiasm. No weather could daunt them—HALE, GALE, FROST or FAIR-WEATHER— all went as WELLS couldbe. They stood the PAYNE, spilled theGORE, their AMES always high! Theyresolved t<» FOSTER breadth of view atany PRICE. Nor was the faculty of thatday so v e r y S M A L L ."In history, though flunks were TERRY-ble, and SPARKS often Hew, you could not WARREN them away. In mathematicsthey'd SLAUGHT-er all problems and cryfor MOORE. With beautiful semetic musicby a HARPER, they plucked deliciousTUFTS from philosophical fields and drankits MEAD with relish. Courageously theystormed the CASTLE of Greek and theTOWER of embryology. Swiftly theycrossed the JORDAN and BREASTED thetreacherous waves of Egyptology. Unlikemost students, they would TROOP eagerlyto English, take a MANLY attitude, andsimply GRABO everything; never MOODY,they builded well with a CARPENTERand would worrv NOTT; why, they evenprofessed to LOVETT!"In Romance, that class was a PIETSCH!In German, they were frequently CLTTTINGWOOD; what more could VON NOE?They were GOODE in geography, alwaysWRIGHT in political economy, andSTRONG in zoology. We had to LAUDthem in botany, from wrhose pond theyoften plucked a LILLIE. And they'dclutch public speaking with a half-NEL-SON, according to the records of theCLARK."My friends, believe it or not, thev'd evenBUCK Sanskrit! That CAPPS the climax!"But college life for '07 was not alwaysa desperate mental struggle. They had theirmoments of lounging on the DAVENPORT. They held manv a joyful STAGGwhere, fed bv a MILLER and served by anotable CHAMBERLAIN, thev were sometimes caught LAUGHLIN at the BUTLER.And today, too, they sing for auld LAINGsyne."And so thev went — that class of classvclasses— watched bv a SHEPARDSOWguided bv a STARR, led bv an ANGELL,to tread forever the HALL of fame!"Then Helen Norris. in "dean's latin," presented President Judson to receive a specialdegree from '07, on the 15th anniversary ofhis presidency. HaroM Swift caused a biglaugh when, with mock seriousness and dignity, he lauded the candidate for the honorary degree in a latin mixture that ransomething like this — "Anna virumque quovadis, simplissimus. cum summum cumlaude, et pax vol iscum." True to form,Prexy startled the crowd — and the degreeeonfercrs — by responding in latin: then, ashe stated, he "fell into English," and expressed his deep appreciation for this "degree" — a sincere testimony of appreciationand affection by the class of '07, in whichclass he was proud to become a member onthis anniversary occasion.The Supper and Garden PartySome five hundred alumni were seated, byclasses, at the Reunion Supper in BartlettGymnasium.

Annual Meeting of Chicago Chapter of PhiBeta KappaThe twenty-third annual meeting of theBeta of Illinois Chapter of the Phi BetaKappa society was held at the Quadrangle Clubon the evening of June 7, 1922, preceded bv thedinner at which one hundred and seventy-five were in attendance. The occasionmarked the twenty-fifth anniversary of thepetition for a chapter at Chicago (the charter was not issued till September 8, 1898,and the installation took place July 1, 1898,so that the quarter-centennial will occur inJune, 1924).There were ten charter members, namelyWilliam Rainey Harper, Harry Pratt Judson, Benjamin Stites Terry, Eliakim Hastings Moore, Thomas Chrowder Chamber-lin, John Ulrich Nef, Albert Harris Tolman,William Gardner Hale, Albian WoodburySmall, and Paul Shorey. Of the eight living charter members, seven are resident atthe Llniversity and six of these were at thismeeting (Professor Shorey being out of thecity at the time). The charter membershipby no means included all the Phi Beta Kappa men in the University at that time, butonly a small group necessary to secure thecharter.

In working this year, we found itnecessary to propose an amendment to theConstitution, increasing the number of executive committee to seven, in order to have aparticular representative from Wellesley andHarvard. We also decided to do some intensive work in the towns about, whereeligible Alumni are to be found. And weelected the new officers:President. Wallace W. Atwood, '97, Ph.D.'03, Clark University; Vice-President, A. R.Radley, '03; Secretary, Mrs. Mona QualeThurber, '13; Treasurer, Herbert L. Willett,Jr., '11; Members of the Executive Committee: Roberts B. Owen, '11, Miss LaetitiaM. Snow, '04, Wellesley, and Howard Beal,'21, from Harvard.Dean Mathews entertained us with an informal account of the various activities andplans of the University, beguiling with theregistration figures which were larger thanany of us realized. He discussed the ideaof decentralizing education to a certain extent, by development of the Junior Collegeplan for various towns, showing us, as mosiof us had begun to realize the last two years,that such large numbers could not behandled to the best advantage on any onecampus. This idea or plan, as well as theQuarter system, are certainly helpful contributions from the University to educationalplans in the country at large.We are interested to learn of the progressof the building plans, and the hope forgreater progress when building conditionsshall be more favorable. And in response toquestions, Dean Mathews described themethods of building up departmental faculties. He suggested that the Alumni couldhelp the teaching side of a faculty by recognizing il as well as the research side — goodteaching still being a necessary pari of aneducational institution! As a good many ofthe twenty-four present were teachers orprofessional people, his poinl was appreciated, lie went on to discuss the plan olPresident Judson for Commissions to intensify intercsl in the various Schools, andthe group of Institutes which should bringmore closely together the theoretical andpractical sides of education. The value of A F F A I R S>uch a plan was emphasized by his description of the work now being done in theDivinity School among the large group ofmissionaries on furlough, who are trainingthemselves to do valuable investigative workand gather data "in the present amazingsocial movement oi Eastern and Westerninter-penetration."I think we all felt, at the conclusion ofDr. Mathews' talk, that we were veryclosely in touch with the real University,and we appreciate very greatly just the kindof ideas which he brought to us. May Avebe so fortunate as to have many more such— shall I call them "Conferences" — for theymake the Alumni feel the worth of the University and appreciate the effort that isbeing made there in Chicago to keep upwith the march of the present day.With many thanks to the Alumni Officefor the material sent for this meeting, believe me,Yours very sincerely,Mrs. Mona Quale Thurber, '13,320 Tappan St., Brookline, Mass.West Suburban Alumnae Club EntertainsHigh School Seniors at UniversityOn Saturday afternoon, April 20. the WestSuburban Alumnae Club entertained onehundred and six girls, mostly seniors of theOak Park and River Forest High School.at the University. The girls were taken tothe University by motor and, after a visitto various University buildings, were entertained at a tea in Ida Noyes Hall. University girls who had attended Oak ParkHigh School assisted in showing the guestsabout. After tea, Mrs. George S. Good-speed addressed the gathering, telling aboutvarious activities at the University of interest to the visitors. The party was incharge of Mrs. Sherman Clark Spitzer(Nellie A.

Building,Portland, Ore.,May C», 1022.Dear Pierrot :Just a line to advise you we had a suc-cessful "Get-together" luncheon at theOregon Grill last week. The inopportuneALUMNI AFFAIRS 291time prevented many from attending butthose present enjoyed the fellowship.One of the interesting topics of conversation was the pending election in whichfudge George Rossman, J.D. '10, one of ourfaithful members, is a candidate. He is nowcompleting the unexpired period of a retired Circuit Judge and naturally we arc-all boosting for him, so that he may continue in this important office another period.His wonderful record as Police Court Judgehas made for him many friends, so there islittle question of his election.I noticed in the last Magazine that "TheGrand Old Man" has been visiting a number of our Clubs in the Middle- West and Iwondered if it would be possible for you toarrange that he make a visit to the PacificCoast within the next year, more acceptably during the school year. Such a visitwould mean much to us and to the schoolwe are trying to "advertise" and support.In the latter connection, if you have anycuts or plates of any of our buildings, eitherthose erected, like the Library, or thoseprojected, as for example the Chapel, together with little writeups attached, wewould like to have them published in oneof our local papers. (.The cuts were sent bythe Alumni Office, as requested in this letter.) Our Alma Mater is not very wellknown here, and although we are a smallgroup we are anxious to re-echo her storyto the Northwest. This suggestion, I fancy,would receive the support of our other distant Clubs, like Seattle, Los Angeles, or SanFrancisco.We would be mighty glad to visit theschool were it possible — so all we can do isto send best wishes for a magnificent Reunion.Sincerely,Joseph Demmery, '20,Secretary.Chicago Prominent in Detroit CollegeMeetingThe Intercollegiate Alumni Club of Detroit held its annual spring luncheon on May(5th. In the words of the publicity committee "Eight hundred real fellows participated in this inspiring intercourse ofillustrious immigrants from intellectual institutions." Seventy-four colleges and universities were represented in the assemblageand for two hours and a half the men ateand sang and shouted and otherwise disported themselves while an orchestra andthree bands made music and near music.Comparative quiet was obtained whileJudge Kenesaw Mountain Landis elocutedin true Landis fashion. Then Charles Robertson of the Chicago White Sox told theuninitiated just how to pitch a "no hit, norun" game, after which the entire crowdmarched in martial array, with flags flyingand bands playing, to Navin Field for theDetroit-Chicago ball game. On the diamond just before the gamestarted Tyrus Raymond Cobb was presented with two degrees in the University ofHard Knocks — the degree of B. S. (BaseStealer) and the degree of M.D. (Managerof Detroit).Then the Tigers proceeded to win thegame with neatness and dispatch, and theeight hundred went home, unanimously voting it the most successful of the annual"Inter Colleg-Eats."The success of this year's celebration wasto a great degree due to the wise guidanceand unremitting labor of the Club's Secretary, Wffi. P. Harms, Chicago '12. Billmade such a reputation for himself as Secretary that he was elected President of theIntercollegiate Alumni Club of Detroit forthe year to come, succeeding representatives of Cornell, Harvard, and Princeton,and being the first alumnus of a MiddleWest Lmiversity to be so honored.The University of Chicago was represented at the luncheon by Bill Harms andsixteen men of lesser fame.New York Alumnae Club at WorkDear Air.

Kansas City Club Reunion Picnic4113 Walnut St., Kansas City, Mo.,June 6, 1922.Air. A. G. Pierrot,Alumni Secretary.My dear Air. Pierrot:Our Alumni meeting here on Saturdaywas a huge success, even though we onlyhad thirty people present. Several of ourmost active alumni had already left forvacations, which accounts for the small attendance. But we made up in enthusiasmwhat we lacked in numbers. The meetingtook the form of a picnic at the countryhome of Dr. and Airs. John G. Hayden,where we were so royally entertained lastyear. Dr. Hayden has quite a reputationlocally as a steak roaster, and every Chicago alumnus will bear witness to the factthat his product stuck between the halvesof a bun and eaten in the open is the bestever!A baseball game, in which Airs. Cuttingcovered herself with more glory than herbig-leaguer husband, featured the afternoon. After the marvelous Hayden-cookedpicnic, the club held a business meeting, atwrhich the following officers were elected:President — Dr. John G. Hayden, '02.Vice-President— Air. LuYerne H. Cutting, '06.Secretary-Treasurer — Aliss Florence Bradley, '15.Then followed a rousing half hour of oldChicago songs, led by Aliss Dorrell at thepiano, and the last hour was spent in dancing in the Hayden's beautiful big living-room. After instructing the secretary tosend alumni greetings to the President onAlumni Day, the club adjourned very reluctantly, but cheered by an invitation fromthe Haydens to have another picnic outthere in the fall.Although we Kansascitians won't heable to have a delegate on the campus atReunion time, you may be sure we'll be withyou in spirit, at least.

Talbert, '02, Ph.D. '10,Secretary.MODERN EDUCATION IN CHINAModern Education in ChinaBy HERBERT F. RUDD, '03, Ph.D. '14.[Mr. Herbert Finley Rudd, '03, A. M. '13, Ph. D.'14, the author of this article, has just returned fromChina, where he first went under the AmericanBaptist Foreign Missionary Society in 1903. Since1917 he trained teachers in the West China UnionUniversity at Chengtu, Szechuan, and in the latterpart of this period was Dean of the Department ofEducation in that institution. Mr. Rudd, who haslectured at Chicago on "Problems of the New China,"is now pursuing special studies in education andpsychology._ Next year he will be Professor ofPsychology in New Hampshire State College, Durham, N. H. His article, based on first-hand experience in China, will undoubtedly prove of deep interest to our readers.]The most remarkable thing about moderneducation in China is the fact that it isthere.China has had scholars and schools continuously since the time of Solomon; schoolswhich have taught Chinese literature, ceremonies, ethics and politics but never thesubjects which we include in a moderncurriculum. For children to study systematically, arithmetic, geography, naturalscience and world history is an entirely newthing in that part of the world.It is difficult for those of us who havehad all of our training in the mushroomcivilization of the west to realize how wellChina has gotten along without a single element of European culture. She has hadagriculture with well developed irrigationsystems; a type of family life that developedthe highest sense of domestic responsibility;as well as art, literature and refinement ofmanners, all of which the most culturedmen of the west are coming to look uponas in many ways superior to our own.But even if China had been incomparablysuperior to our western nations in all ofthese things, she could not have continuedher course untouched by the rest of theworld. The day when any nation can remain isolated is past. But it was only afterother nations had been violently thrustingthemselves upon China for decades that shedecided she must learn from the westernbarbarians in order to meet the competitionof the times.In 1905, the old Empress Dowager abolished the time honored system of civil service examinations and authorized the beginning of a modern system of schools. Evenwe, who were then in China, could not at allcomprehend the meaning of the changethat was taking" place. Indeed what otherevent in world history can be at all compared with this in significance. One fourthof the world's population was turning fromits own culture which it had been thousandsof years in building up, and beginning to train its youth in the ways of an alien civilization.Certainly no similar event ever occurredin the past, and it seems safe to say thatnothing like it can ever happen in thefuture. One may well question whetherthe World War has been as crucial in itssignificance, as the turning of China to thewestern world for its educational system.It is probably safe to assume that even theaverage alumnus of the University of Chicago has not oriented himself with reference to the stupendous task involved inintroducing a modern system of schools inChina. Hence we may suggest some of thedifficulties, beginning with the financialproblem.In a nation of extreme poverty, where 90per cent of the people were laborers whosetotal income for a family of five was lessthan ^50.00 per year, how could any sortof an adequate system of schools be supported? The only answer is that anythingadequate was utterly impossible.A second difficulty was in the fact thatthe government had no adequate controlover the affairs of the provinces and nodepartment of education organized to putover the program. The only power to putthe edict into effect had to be exercisedthrough the corrupt army of old Mandarinsscattered through the provinces, and theprecarious public opinion which might ormight not support the edict. There wasnaturally only the haziest notion among thelocal authorities as to what a modern schoolwas supposed to De.But all other difficulties pale into insignificance compared with the problem ofsecuring an adequate teaching staff for sucha system of schools. Great areas withpopulation running into the millions hadnot a single person who knew any of themodern subjects for which teachers weredemanded. The difficulty of securing teachers of English is illustrated by the widely-told tale of an ambitious teacher in a portcity who put out his sign to attract students, saying "English taught as far as K,"meaning that he himself had learned thatmuch of the alphabet.In many places arithmetic was taught bygetting pages of problems with their solutions written out and having the pupils copythem in their notebooks regardless ofwhether teacher or pupil comprehended theprocesses involved. Few if any textbookswere available in many of the schools andno apparatus for the teaching of the sciences. Exorbitant salaries were paid for294 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEteachers who knew almost nothing of theirsubjects. Then there was the natural reaction of disgust with the whole enterprisewhen the teachers failed to deliver thegoods.Great numbers of students rushed toJapan for short courses and came backto teach in the normal schools which sprangup like mushrooms in many centers.We must now mention the work of mission colleges and academies which hadgradually developed for several decadesunder foreign initiative, before there wasany demand on the part of the Chinesethemselves for western training. Whenthe new government system began in 1916there were already several small missioncolleges and several tens of academies, someof whose graduates were soon in great demand as teachers in the new governmentschools.To offset the many difficulties which wehave been mentioning, China had severaladvantages which are worthy of notice. I he-first advantage was in the ancient pubhcsentiment in favor of education. Learninghad always been looked upon as the mostworthy personal attainment and the oneway to social and political advancement.This public sentiment had rather run aheadof the government in many places in demanding a modern education instead of theold classical examination system.Again there were millions of men andyouths throughout the country who weremasters of their own literature, had studioushabits and keen, bright minds, and couldcomprehend most of the new subjects inabout one-fourth of the time it would require for an ordinary school child to learnthem.Printing presses had been in use for agesand a few modern presses had already beenturning out considerable quantities of literature on modern subjects for some yearsbefore the new school system was introduced. The most conspicuous of these isthe Commercial Press of Shanghai which isa marvel of efficiency, employing thousandsof workers, printing textbooks of all kinds— many of them by the millions of copies,and distributing them throughout the wholecountry. This business institution has donemuch to take the place that might have keenexpected of an efficient government organization. It employs skilled writers of textbooks and other literature for popular reading, publishes a long list of specialized andtechnical magazines in various fields andundertakes in every way to keep its puhlica-tions up to date, and meet the needs of everyclass.Among the other factors that have contributed to (he success of this educationalmovement, we must not overlook thedynamic interest that has been created by China's own condition. The modern learning has seemed to be a matter of life anddeath for many of the people and for theirnation. It offered the only hope for individual and collective salvation.It seems worth while to compare China'sproblem with that of Japan and the Philippines in introducing modern education. Inthe case of Japan, the territory and population was only a small fraction of that inChina, and there was a strongly centralizedmilitary government with absolute authorityto put its plans into effect, a people worshiping their emperor, thinking he could do nowrong, and assuming that the highest attainment in life is to fulfill his wishes.China has never had any such sentimentabout the government.In the Philippines the population and areawere likewise almost infinitessimal compared with China, there was a strong government familiar with modern education andable to put in a thousand American teachersm the first year of the movement. A similar proportion for China would have demanded nearly fifty thousand AmericanteachersReturning to the actual story of what hasbeen accomplished in China in the lastfifteen years in spite of vast difficulties andvery limited resources, I can probably present the story in no more vivid way thanby comparing my first year's work inI hinese schools, 1906, with my last year'swork, 1920.In 190G, after two years of language studv,I was called upon to take charge of thenewly established mission academy at Suifu,a city, situated at the upper limit of navigation on the Yangtze river, with a population equal to that of Kansas City. It is considered tin- third city in size in "the provinceof Szechuan which is credited with a population of seventy million.\\ hen I took charge of this institution ithad as students about 30 bright young men,varying from 13 to 30 years of" age, manyof whom had a good foundation in the( hinese literature and were anxious to heamong the first to acquire English and themodern subjects.I was expected to teach English, arithmetic, geography and physical culture for ahoutseven hours per day, besides looking afterall matters of discipline, supervising thehoarding arrangements, handling accounts,and giving out medicines to students thathappened to need them. The students hadno notion as to what an organized schoolshould be, and there were no precedents fordealing with am of the many problems thatwere constantly occurring. The greatestot all my embarrassments was due to myown ignorance of the Chinese language andof the thought and life of the people. Atfirst it was impossible among several mil-MODERN EDUCATION IN CHINAlion people to find a single teacher, whocould be of any real service with any subject but the Chinese language. There wasnot another institution within a hundredmiles that was doing better work, and notmore than two or three in the whole province that were prepared to do better or evenas well as our institution was doing.The picture of conditions in 1920 is entirely different, however. Here my storyshifts to Chengtu, the capital of the province, and to the West China Union University. In this institution are combined themen and resources of five mission boards.They are those of American Baptists, theAmerican Methodists, the Canadian Methodists, the English Friends, and the Churchof England. These missions combined inthe purchase of land for a college campusjust outside of the south wall of the city ofChengtu. The campus covers more than100 acres of ground. On it there are erectedsix fine permanent college buildings. Besides these there are a number of temporary buildings and more than twentygood faculty residences. The whole campus,with its lawns and athletic fields, has thesame charm as the most beautiful collegecampuses in America. In all departments,including' the high school, there is a studentbody of more than four hundred members.The work of the University is conductedunder the faculties of arts, science, education, religion and medicine, and in the Normal School and High School. Everydepartment of the institution is well organized and fairly well equipped. All of thestudents have come up through the regularchannels of elementary school and highschool. In this and the other missionschools of the province of lower grade, thereare enrolled a total of more than 20,000pupils; and every teacher of modern subjects in these schools has a preparation forhis work, such as but few teachers of theprovince had fifteen years ago.What is here reported as to progress inmission schools, would be even more notic-able in a study of the government schools.The statistics of educational work inChina may still seem small, but the tendencies inaugurated are all important.We may well ponder the fact that until1005, the modern school system of theChinese government was represented byzero. In 1910 there were more than oneand a half million pupils enrolled in theso-called modern schools. And in 1919 therewere four and a half million pupils in theseschools.// the rate of increase of the last nineyears could be maintained for anotherquarter of a century, China would have alarger percentage of her children in schoolthan any other nation in the world. Theimprovement in quality has been equally significant and if maintained for anothertvventy-live years would place China in thefirst rank among the nations for the qualityof her school system.It is significant, also, that in the earlyyears of this educational movement, Chinawent to Japan and accepted a second-handGerman system of education for introduction in her own schools. In recent yearsshe is seeking more and more to patent herschools after the American type as she findsit in this country ami in the Philippines.Some ten years ago, in the heyday ofJapanese popularity, there were 15,000Chinese students studying in Japan. Now,we are told that the number has dwindledto 4,000, while the number of Chinese students coming past Japan and taking the longand expensive journey across the Pacificto study in America has risen to 2,000.There is no question but that a studentreturned from America is far more popularand influential than a student returned fromJapan.Among other significant features of thepresent day educational tendencies in China,we may mention the frequent sending ofeducational commissions to the variousnations of the world, particularly America,to learn what is the best type for China; theoft repeated emphasis on vocational andpractical education; the vernacular literature movement, which insist that all writings, scientific, philosophical and literaryshall be written m the "beh hua" or common spoken language of the people insteadof the more formal and less easily understood style of the ancient classics; thepopular leadership of such institutions asthe National University in Peking, and thenew government University at Nankingwhich is especially stressing the scientificstudy of educational processes and problems; and, last but not least, the growingpopular demand that the military forces ofthe country shall be reduced and more fundsmade available for education.In this latter connection we may noticethe statistics given by Mr. T. Z. Tyau in hisrecent book "China Awakened." Mr. Tyaureports that the military expenditures of thecountry in 1920 amounted to $198, 000,000,while education received only about onethirtieth of that amount or $6, 500,000.Hence, we may believe that if political stability can be re-established and the militaryexpenditures reduced, education will securegreatly increased resources.When we consider the political chaos ofthe last decade, we can only marvel at thereal progress that has been attained andlook forward with confident expectationthat China will not be satisfied until herpeople have the best education that it ispossible for them to get.296 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESPracticing for the SingUndergraduate activities come to a closewith the Spring examinations June 14, 15and 16, but as always the climax of the yearwas divided between the Hop and the Sing.The Interclass Hop, June 2, in BartlettGymnasium proved to be highly successful;a unique decorative scheme made Bartlettalmost unrecognizable, and music of exceptional quality was provided by the Benson Orchestra. The Interfraternity Sing,June 9, in Hutchinson Court drew alumnifrom many parts of the country. Twenty-seven fraternities participated.Various campus organizations have announced their selections for the ensuingyear. The Daily Maroon will be headed byOlin Stansbury, '23, managing editor; FrankLinden, '23, business manager; RussellPierce, '24, and Robert Pollak, '24, newseditors; Ruth Metcalfe, '23, women's editor;Russell Carrell, '24, assistant news editor;John McGuire, '23, sports editor; HermanLandau, '23, advertising manager, and Russell Pettit, '24, circulation manager.

BesterPrice, '24, will act as manager. Scenariosfor the next show have already been calledfor. A feature of the annual Friars' initiation banquet May 23 was the election ofHamilton Coleman, producer of seven ofthe shows including that of 1922, as a laybrother.The Undergraduate Council electedWalker Kennedy, '23, as president for thecoming year, and the Honor Commissionchose Harold Lewis, '23, as its permanentpresident. Lewis has been acting in thatcapacity. A recent plan to put all casesof student ticket scalping into the hands ofthe Honor Commission came as a result ofthe splendid work done by that body thisyear.Lennox Grey, '23, was chosen by President Judson as head student marshal of theLaiiversity for 1923. The other marshals areFranklin Carter, Livingston Hall, JacksonMoore, Henry Ricketts, Russell Ward,Arthur White, and Karl Zener. The following were named as aides for the year: AlmaCramer, Ruth Galinsky, Alice Larson, AnnaG.

Moulton, '07, Ph.D. '15This biographical sketch, as may be noted,is in the nature of a farewell. Although butrecently elected full professor in political economy,Harold G. Moulton, '07,Ph.D. To, will leave theUniversity in September,to become the head of TheInstitute of Economicsnow being created by theCarnegie Corporation andto be established at Washington, D. C. We feel itmost fitting, therefore, that,on the "eve of his departure," we pass on to ourreaders some details aboutthe life of H. G.He was born at LeRoy,Michigan, November 7,1883. After the usualhome-town preliminaries,he attended Albion College, Michigan, for twoyears, distinguishing himself in debating and baseball, and then entered theUniversity of Chicago. AtChicago he continued hisdebating activity with pronounced success, and, inhis senior year, won his"C," playing left field on the 1007 baseballteam. He was a member of WashingtonHouse and of Delta Sigma Rho honoraryfraternity. Harold Moulton stood out as oneof the real leaders of his class and was alwayspopular throughout his college career.For several years after graduation he taughtat University High School and at EvanstonAcademy, also coaching the high school baseball, football and track teams. He onceboasted, "My football team went through anentire season and never once crossed anybody's goal line." However plus nevertheless,he always maintained keenest interest in athletics, and today is known as "Dope" Moulton,because nobody, outside of the Old Man, knowsas much "dope" about Chicago athletics andathletes. In fact, but recently Tom Eck said,"He can tell the time to within one-fifth of asecond simply by feeling his pulse." He hasdispensed interesting information to ouralumni clubs on a number of occasions.In 1911 Harold returned to the University,to complete his graduate work, and obtainedhis Ph. D. in economics in 1915. During thisperiod he was the debating coach — a task inHarold G. Moulton, '07, Ph.D. '15which he won notable victories for Chicago.On June 17, 1012, he married Frances C.Rawlins. The Moultons have two children,Jack, aged 9, and Barbara, aged 7.He began teaching political economy at Chicagoin 1911, as an instructor,and because of his brilliantlectures and writings roserapidly in his profession.In 1012 he won the Hart,Schaffner & Marx economic essay prize with avolume on WaterwaysI'crsus Railways. He isjoint-author of Readingsin the Economics of War,author of Principles ofMoney and Banking, ofThe Financial Organization of Society, and, thisyear, co-author with JohnF. Bass of America andthe Balance Sheet ofEurope. He has also written numerous pamphletson economic subjects andarticles in scientific, business and literary magazines. He writes the Weekly Analysis of generalbusiness conditions for theChicago Association ofCommerce. Moulton represented the Chicago Association at the London Conference last year, is on finance committees of both the Chicago and the UnitedStates Chamber of Commerce, and has lectured at Columbia and other universities.The new Institute of Economics, which hehas been appointed to organize and direct, hastwo aims: (1) Seek the truth; (2) presentit so that a layman can understand it. It isnot a government bureau, but will cooperatewith various departments of the governmentand with the United States Chamber of Commerce. Its library will accommodate 100,000volumes, and students, while working thereas assistants, will have air opportunity to writeand publish pamphlets, monographs and special reports. The University and the alumniregret to see II. G. Moulton leave, but a greathonor, a great opportunity has been extendedto him, and he leaves with our heartiest bestwishes for fullest success; indeed, with ourcomplete confidence that it will require but avery brief time to prove that the right manhas been selected.»« THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEQ* Pi £1 B <~\ @ Q (S ft)fc5K MfOT c© @ m Jfo M\MBaseballThose alumni who came back and participated in the 8-2 defeat of the varsity ballteam in the annual game don't need to betold that score. The others for the monthwere: Purdue, 5; Chicago, 2. Northwestern, 5; Chicago, 3; Chicago, 11; Iowa, 0;Wisconsin, 9; Chicago, 5; Michigan, 5; Chicago, 0 ; Wisconsin, 7 ; Chicago, 0. Thatends the tale; the reasons for the weakshowing have been set forth previously.TrackThe track team scored 9 3/7 points in theconference meet at Iowa City on June 3; asecond by Frida in the discus; a fifth in thehammer by Michael; a tie with six othersfor fourth in the pole vault by Brauer Hall;and a second in the relay, gathered byPyott, MacFarlane, Jones and A. Brick-man, accounting for that total. DuringMay the team lost a duel meet to Wisconsin,won from Purdue, and then lost toMichigan.The Conference MeetCompetition in the conference these daysis competition of a great degree of intensity. When Pyott and Al Brickman rantheir quarters under 50 seconds at IowaCity they were unable to place; nor couldBrickman's 1:57 2/5 place him in the half.The times in other events are in proportion;the relay team which got second after Illinois, the winner in 3:20, was disqualified,ran under the conference record of :>:2Usset by a Chicago team in 1916. Vet it wasthird. But three men, Captain Redmon inthe hammer, Al Brickman, a valuable quarter and half miler, and Hall, the polevaulter, will be lost by graduation, and soDirector Stagg is expecting much for nextyear.Golf ChampionshipsThe golf team, led by Captain GeorgeHartman, with Purdctte Ford, CharlesMcGuire, and William McGuire as the othermembers, has had unvarying success, defeating every team it has met, includingOhio, Illinois, Michigan, and Purdue.Director Stagg was active in getting golfrecognized as a conference sport, and thesuccess o! the team is pleasing. The con ference tournament will be at Chicago onJune 10-22. Captain Hartman is favoritefor the individual championship, and theteam for that title.Tennis Doubles ChampionAs usual, Chicago won a share of thetennis honors, Arthur Frankenstein and A.A. Stagg, Jr., taking the doubles, by defeating the Ohio team of Wirthwein and Juddin the finals. Both men will be back nextseason. During the year they lost but onedual meet, to Illinois, and that by a closemargin.The Interscholastic, with over 600 individuals entered, was the best of the longseries. Stars from 30 different states competed, from such extremes as New York andCalifornia, the latter state entering threeteams. Cedar Rapids, la., with 22 points.was first in the high school division; Ox-nard, Cal., and Austin, Tex., tied for second,with 14 points. In the academy division,Shattuk, Minn., was first; St. John's,hid., second, and Culver, Ind., third.New "C" MenThe new "C's" announced by DirectorStagg at the annual "C" dinner were:Track: A. W. Brickman, C. I. Brickman,C. Dickson, L. R. Doolev, H. G. Frida, A.J. Jones, B. B. Hall, R. B. MacFarlane, H.~L. Michael, 1. M. Pvott. Gvmnastic team:J. H. Hargreaves. W. LaMont, H. T.Ricketts. Golf: G. H. Hartman, B. E.f^ord. Tennis: A. E. Frankenstein, A. A.Stagg, Jr. Water basketball: C. J. Mer-riam, R. F. Flint. Livingston Hall. Wrestling: M. Hatowski, E. Kieler, K. Sar-polis.Everything considered, the year in athletics has been successful. It started witha great football team which, by decisivelydefeating Princeton, brought high honors tothe middle west. In track and baseball theshowing was weak, but prospects in thesesports are much higher for next year. Thebasketball team made a varied record, butin its top games was a strong fighting teamand won creditable victories. Championships in gymnastics, swimming (waterbasketball), tennis, and golf were won —four championships for the year. It was ayear of unexpected reverses and unexpected victories, at times, but on the wholea year that maintained successfully Chicago's high standing in athletic sports.\Y. Y.

It was a matter Ihad deeply at heart when a student there,and on which I feel deeply yet. I wouldlike to suggest a very simple and practicalexpedient for assisting the cause. The difficulties due to the Quarter System andother causes I need not go into. But tomake matters worse we adhere to a whollyillogical system of shooting our classes topieces by defining our classes as consistingof those who graduate in a certain year.For example those who started with theclass of 1922 are shot into three groups,labeled as parts of the classes of 1021, 1022and 1923. It inevitably happens (greatlyfostered by our quarter system), that alarge portion of those who start with a certain class graduate ahead of it. Many takesummer work. Others have advance credit.Still others take extra work. Such studentsare labeled as undergraduates with the yearof the class they are likely to graduate with.And as alumni they are always classed withthose with whom they happened to graduate. In our example they become as undergraduates members of the class of 1021,or members of that class as alumni. Another large portion of those who start as1922, for a variety of reasons, sickness, business, etc., will "drop behind, and will beforced to become members of the class of1923. By such artificiality the class is in aconstant process of being chewed up andtorn to pieces.I know just how it works by personal experience. I started with the class of 1903.In the middle of my undergraduate days Ifound I should graduate in 1002. I therefore shifted my loyalty to 1002 and cultivated friends in that class. My classdesignation as a law student is stillmore distressing. I was a member ofthe Law Class of 1904. During mylast year in the law school I did nottake full work as I had to take upGreek for the first time, in preparation forthe examination for the Rhodes Scholarship. The scholarship took me to Oxfordfor three years. I was a couple of majorsshort for my J. D. I took the necessarywork in the summer of 1907, upon my re turn from Oxford, and received the J. D.in September, 1907. For some reason beyond my power of understanding the University authorities insist on dubbing meJ. D. 1908. I never saw the class of 1908,nor the class of 1907. I grow exceedinglywrath}- every time I think of it. It is whollypreposterous. I was a member of the LawClass of 1004, and why anybody should insist on insulting me and on separating mefrom my class I don't know.Here at Oxford University they showsome common sense about the matter. Aman's class is fixed by the date of his entrance. If he enters in the Autumn of 1022he belongs to the class of 1022. He makesall of his college friends during his firstyear of residence, and keeps them throughout his college course, and in after life. Wein America are asked to change our collegefriends every time the wind blows. As faras friendship is concerned it is wholly immaterial when a man takes a degree. Somerlo it in three years, some in four, some infive, and many take their degree years afterthey have completed their final examinationsbecause they cannot afford to pay for themat the time of leaving Oxford. Many forone reason or another never take their degrees. What difference does it make? Theyall came to Oxford at the same time andtheir friends are members of the class.It would perhaps be too much for theLniversity of Chicago to adopt a systemof class "designations based upon the timeof entrance rather than upon that of graduation, because the latter system is generalin America and a radical departure from itwould be embarrassing. But why not givea man a class number at the time he entersand let him keep that throughout his life.Let those who enter in the Autumn of 1922be called the class of 1020, and allow themto preserve their integrity. Let the clas.^stay together as a unit. Don't tear friendsapart. Let us stop class murder.Robert L. Henry, '02, J.D. '04.Charlie and Artie in LondonNorth Wales, England,May 9, 1922.Mr. Adolph G. Pierrot,Editor, The Alumni Magazine,L niversity of Chicago.Dear Mr. Pierrot:Enclosed please find a Money Order forthe nearest equivalent to Two Good American Dollars which Wales is able to affordme. They set out on a pilgrimage which I300 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcan only envy them; and they go towardan accomplishment and a purpose — in TheAlumni Magazine — which are truly dear tothe heart of one who has spent a large partof his life in the various Schools of theUniversity of Chicago. Two Dollars is buta paltry measure of expression of the lovefor Alma Mater which prompts their errandto you.The arrival by His Majesty's Royal Mailsof the Magazine is like the visit of an oldcollege mate — and those things are scarcerthan Camels and Malted Milks over here inEngland The only real representative ofthe old Varsity who has crossed my pathhas been. Artie Scott, who has been dilcttant-ing away some vacation credit on theseshores. After a few parties with Scotty inLondon, I venture to say he returns to theStates almost a connoisseur — in certain particulars which have been particularized inAmerica to the point of extermination. Withhis departure I can only turn for comfortto the next number of The Alumni Magazine!With heartiest wishes for a romping yearof success and good fortune for you andyour fine work, I remain always mostLoyally yours,Charles Breasted, '21.The Stadium ProjectDear Mr. Pierrot:In your editorial you ask alumni to express an opinion on the matter of a stadiumat the University. I am for any real andadequate movement for the good of the University. I am not, however, for a halfway.half satisfactory, half adequate project whichwill be outgrown before it is really completed, such as have been several otherbuildings at our alma mater.Before giving my opinion on a stadium,however, I wish to present a counter project,namely a large "armory-gym." We canshift with the present grand stand on StaggField a few years longer, if necessary, especially if the city stadium is soon built; butwe cannot shift without a commodious winter playground for athletics for all the menstudents and for military drill. I need notpresent arguments for the military department, for Major Marr could do that better than I can; but I know that the exce1-lent cavalry and artillery companies are agreat credit to the University, that theymust have a large hall for indoor drills inwinter, and that Major Marr wishes sucha building.We must have larger quarters for physical training and athletics. Bartlett is dreadfully congested. On a winter afternoon onemay see large numbers oi track men, baseball candidates, wrestlers, gymnasts, weigh.throwers, pole vaulters, sprinters, basketball players, etc. — all working at once, andall colliding and interfering with one an other's efforts. Men cannot develop undersuch conditions. They dare not exert orextend themselves, for they constantly fearcollisions, and collisions constantly occur.How can a man practice shot-putting when adozen wrestlers are tumbling about his feet?How can a pole-vaulter leap the bar whengymnasts swing about his head? How cana sprinter or hurdler speed up when basketball players chase each other across thetrack? Because of this congestion, "gym"classes, basket-ball teams, and others arecompelled to practice at unsuitable hours,such as from six to seven o'clock, or aftersupper. Under such crowded conditionsefficiency is impossible; and injuries to themen must follow.Furthermore, Bartlett is unsuited to athletic training. In the first place, it is toosmall. The circular track is small and narrow, and the "straight-way" is short. Itwas built for a student body one-fourth thesize of the present enrollment. What will itbe in ten years from now? In the secondplace, the hard track and Moor are not goodfor running, jumping, vaulting, etc. Clayor cinder floors are necessary for such training. The hard tracks contribute to stiffjoints and muscles, strained tendons, orbroken arches. Fear of such mishaps prevents the men from exerting themselves tothe utmost, especially in hurdling and vaulting or jumping. I have heard men complainof this, and can well see the justice of thecomplaints. This fear discourages them,and may well drive some out of competition. It certainly does not afford a stronginducement to large numbers to competefor places on teams, or to good high schoolboys to enter Chicago. The "gym" haslong been inadequate. It is needed forgeneral physical training classes, gymnastics, Avrestling, etc. If there are to beathletic teams, they should be as excellentas possible. As in the case of studies, athletics should be done well and with enthusiasm, or not at all. Indifference, half-heartedeffort, is baneful and demoralizing; it reactsharmfully upon the whole University. Ihold, therefore, that we need a combinedgymnasium and military drill-hall more thanwe need a stadium.I am not, however, opposed to a stadiumif it be on an adequate plan; if it be large,imposing, permanent; if it will serve in fiftyyears as well as today. But I would insistthat if a stadium be built now, it incorporate with it a large, adequate hall for athletics and military purposes. Such a combination is entirely feasible. In most stadiums the space under the tiers of seats ishft unoccupied and unused. My plan woulduse this along one lull side, and enlarge itto twice or three times its width by a structural steel arch roof, one ' side of whichwould support the stadium seats, and thencurve round to complete the "gym" roof andrest upon the outer wall of the "gym." ThisTHE LETTER BOX 301plan would save all one side, one-half of theroof, and one-half of each end of the "gym."Yet it would afford a wide ground-floorspace the full length of the stadium, whichshould be about seven hundred feet. Thewidth would perhaps be one hundred andsixty feet. The clay floor would save thecost of wooden floors. The space underthe other side, or tiers of seats, of thestadium could be enclosed for showers,dressing-rooms, lockers, etc., and for artillery, horses, military offices, etc. The"armory-gym" could have a circular trackand hundred yard straight-way, tenniscourts, a movable platform for basket-baligames, etc. Permanent seats for about eightthousand spectators could be placed along onewall and end. These would provide a substan-stantial income at basket-ball games, trackmeets, military tournaments, etc., during thelong winter months.A stadium large enough and imposingenough to harmonize well with the otherUniversity buildings would cost $2,000,000.An additional $400,000 would pay for the"armory-gym." This is a large sum ofmoney, but it can be raised; and if thealumni and friends will do something grand,will start a great movement, and will carryit out at once and with enthusiasm, then Iam for the stadium. But I should insistthat the "armory-gym" be a part of theproject.Methods for raising the money otherscould suggest better than I can. But whyshould not the alumni and students raise$1,000,000, on say five annual payments; thefriends of the University contribute $500,000;and $1,000,000 be underwritten? In fiveyears the project would pay for itself fromgate-receipts. Illinois and Ohio alumnihave done a task as big, and they are noricher than we are. Are they more loyal?Let Chicago alumni do something of"greater power" now that the opportunity ishere. Carry out the whole project in a big-way, a grand, proud way; or let us providefirst what we need most — a large "armory-gym," in which all the students can findroom for daily exercise in winter and badweather.Sincerely yours,H.

This would mean that thewomen of the university would be vvithoutan athletic field. Furthermore, if this program is carried out the University of Chicago will be the only large university thatdoes not have an outdoor athletic field forthe women.Therefore the following resolution waspassed:"Resolved: that the members of the Chicago Alumnae Club of the University of Chicago disapprove ofthe building program of the University of Chicagowhereby the plans specify that the Women's AthleticField (Woodlawn Field) shall be used for buildingthe Women's Dormitories. Furthermore, the membersof the Chicago Alumnae Club feel that the women ofthe University are entitled to Woodlawn Field astheir Athletic Field."A copy of this resolution was sent to thePresident of the Board of Trustees of theUniversity.On May 23, 1922, the following reply wasreceived:"My dear Mrs. Higgins:"Your letter addressed to the president of theBoard of Trustees of the University of Chicago underdate of May 2. 1922, was submitted to the Board atits meeting held May IS. The Board voted to referyour resolution to the Committee on Buildings andGrounds, which Committe is accustomed to take preliminary action on matters concerned with the hallsand quadrangles of the institution. Rest assuredthat your communication will receive thoughtful attention. Yours very truly, •J. S. Dickerson.

Thepurpose of the organization is to lay thefoundation for training democratic citizens.The advisory board is composed of representatives from five associations, those ofthe historians, economists, political scientists, psychologists, and geographers ; andnational organizations of educational investigators and administrators are also represented.Dean Marshall is also a member of thecommission appointed by the Association 01Collegiate Schools of Business which hasjust issued through the University of Chicago Press a report on Social Studies in Secondary Schools.College and University FinanceNow that education in colleges and universities has become much more expensive,and enlarged endowments are being soughtin countrywide campaigns, a new book hasappeared which will be of timely assistance to educational administrators. TheGeneral Education Board of New York hasdone a public service in issuing a volumeCollege and University Finance, by Trevor Arnett ('98), Secretary of the Board andAuditor of the University of Chicago. Histwenty years' successful experience in thelatter position has peculiarly qualified himto put into book form a statement of theprinciples underlying college accounting andthe use and care of trust funds, and to describe a complete, yet simple, system of college accounts which has been tried andfound satisfactory. A valuable feature ofthe book is a set of by-laws containing provisions for the conduct of an endowed college.THE MISSOURI FIELD STATION OFTHE DEPARTMENT OF GEOLOGYSince 1914 the department of Geology hasbeen conducting a Summer field course inSte. Genevieve County, Missouri, under thedirection of Professor Stuart Weller. Theregion which is studied by the class is anideal field laboratory. Geological phenomena in great variety are exhibited in a smallarea about six miles in length and less thanthree miles wide. As many as twenty-fivedistinct geological formations are exposed,giving a wonderful opportunity for strati-graphic studies. The rocks are extensivelyfaulted, a condition which furnishes fascin ating problems in structural geology. Thestudent of paleontology can collect quantitiesof finely preserved fossils from many different horizons, and a variety of physiographicphenomena can be observed and studied.In the conduct of the work the class haslived in camp at a central location so thatthe whole area can be reached easily, andat no time is it necessry for members ofthe class to be farther from the camp thanfour miles.Early in 1921 the accommodations forcarrying on the field work in this Ste. Genevieve region, were greatly facilitated throughthe generosity of an alumnus of the University. Mr. W. F. Wrather, '07. A tract often acres of ground was purchased for apermanent camp site, and two buildings ofconcrete construction were erected, one foruse as kitchen and dining-room, and a second for the protection of the spring whichsupplies the camp with water. These buildings were completed and used for the firsttime in the Summer of 1921. The perma-Missouri Field Stationnent camp site is a beautiful wooded hillside, mostly covered with large oak treesof several species. At the foot of the hill,at one edge of the property, is a fine springof cold water which is now well protectedby the new spring house, which serves asa refrigerator for the storage of such foodsas need to be kept cool. A pump in thekitchen makes the water supply convenientfor the cook. Further improvements areplanned for the present season which willadd greatly to the equipment of the FieldStation.It is contemplated that within the nexttwo or three years the work at the FieldStation will be greatly expanded, and thatinstead of a Summer Field Course of amonth's duration, a true Field School_ ofGeology will be conducted, continuingthrough the whole Summer Quarter, wherea variety of courses will be carried on underthe direction of several instructors. Thefirst step in this expansion will be madeduring the coming Summer, when, in addition to the course in geologic mappingwhich has always been given, there will beoffered a course in topographic mapping under a competent instructor.304 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE^ .„ ._ Ba__BB_DB_BB_ nffl ..

In 1920 there weresome 1,700 alumni. By 1921 the numberhad more than reached the 1,S00 mark. Atthe time of this writing, June, 1922, the Administration reports more than 2,000 alumni.The Alumni Dinner — The main feature ofthe reunion was the annual dinner held inIda Noyes Hall. About an hour before thedinner the alumni assembled and enjoyed agood time meeting old friends and establishing new friendships. After this hour ofwholesome good time the faculty and alumni,numbering 161 men and women, repaired tothe spacious dining hall and enjoyed thegood dinner which awaited their coming.The program — As soon as the inner manhad been appeased the social and intellectual man had his inning, for a good program had been arranged. Dean Gray, acting in the capacity of master of ceremonies,succeeded in getting the audience into afavorable frame of mind for the receptionof several speeches by drawing freely on hisextensive repertoire ot jokes. Rumor hasit that the good Dean spent several hoursconsulting joke literature by way of preparing for this special function.President McVey of the Alumni Association of the School of Education wascalled upon by the toastmaster for the firstspeech of the evening. In his more seriousmoments President McVey emphasized theneed for a genuine spirit of cooperation andgood fellowship in any kind of institutionallife.Miss Bertha Smith, of the Oak Park HighSchool, succeeded in convincing her hearersthat "if our profession is to be what wewant it, we have to be crazy about it."Superintendent Engleman of Jolict wasthe third speaker.

Noting the headlinesdescribing Air. Bryan's lecture tour or theKentucky legislative situation, they learnthat their college courses are believed tohave undermined their religious faith, thattheir study of Darwinism and evolution ingeneral have made it impossible for themto carry on the religious banners underwhich they march through Sunday School.They begin to wonder just what there is inthe science of evolution.It is fortunate that at this time there isavailable for these inquiring persons a condensed and reliable source of informationto which they may turn in an effort to finda basis of discussion. They may not careto read all of Darwin's Original Essays,and the many scientific works that thatdocument called forth. They may not wishto stop with Wells's delineation of evolutionin his Outline of History. If what they wantis a conception of the theories lying hiddenin these books, they may turn to HoratioHackett Newman's Evolution, Genetics.and Eugenics and feci Mire that they willfind in language of the layman a competentand accurate account of what they are-seeking.Evolution, Genetics, and Eugenics, is achain of the vital parts of the publishedworks ot famous evolutionists, strung on anarrative thread by Mr. Newman. It isthe grain sifted from the chaff. It is a tremendously interesting story of a big subject,which has heretofore been seen only afragment at a time through difficult, techni cal mediums. It is a library in itself, despite its moderate size, for the author hasincorporated in it representative accountsof the steps in the development of thetheory.Mr. Newman, in his preface, suggests thatevolution and religion are not diametrically opposed, and that teachers of evolution "have no sinister designs upon thereligious faith of their students." He thenbegins his book with a few paragraphs selected to show contrasting definitions of thesubject. For the inquiring reader, thechapter next following is one of the mostvaluable in the book, for in it Air. Newmangives a historical account of the progressof the evolution theory from the ancientGreeks down to the recent scientists. Heanalyzes the outstanding contributions andsuggests the relative importance to be attached to each theory.Succeeding chapters tell in Air. Newman'swords and those of the great scientists, whohave contributed to the advance of the subject of the evidences of organic evolution,and of the factors which have affected thetheories. The reader learns that there is aline of demarkation between fact andtheory, and where with fairness that linemay be expected to lie. The arguments forand against are offered so that one mayfairly choose. The Darwinian theory iscarefully presented and suggestions madeas to its importance. The various elementswithin "Darwinism" are analyzed so thatthe reader may conclude how much of adebt is owed to Darwin.The last third of the book becomes moretechnical in its presentation of Genetics andEugenics, but the reader will rind it valuablefor the conception it gives of the need forhaving any research at all on evolution. Itpresents the ureat questions of human conservation and the improvement of mankind, with allied problems of control of immigration, d'scriminating marriage laws,and segregation ^i defectives.PHI BETA KAPPA MEETING— CLUBSThe 1922 Reunion(Continued from page 289)this meeting who were in the University atthe time, or came not long thereafter, wereThomas Wakefield Goodspecd, Marion Talbot, James Hayden Tufts, Herbert Ellsworth Slaught, John Merle Coulter, ErnestDeWitt Burton, Albert Abraham Michelson,Francis Wayland Shepardson, AddisonWebster Moore, Charles Hubbard Judd,Edgar Johnson Goodspecd, David AllanRobertson, Sophonisba Preston Brecken-ridge, Plervey Foster Mallory, George Linnaeus Marsh, and William Duncan MacMil-lan.The chapter has elected five honorarymembers during its history, this privilegeof the constitution having been used mostconservatively. These are: Albert AbrahamMichelson, Jacques Loeb, Edward Capps,Ernest DeWitt Burton and Julian WilliamMack.The large attendance, and especially ofolder members, was manifestly in the spiritof an ovation to President Judson, whowas foremost in organizing the ChicagoChapter, was its first president, and hasbeen its staunch supporter during all theseyears. It was, therefore, with unusualpleasure and great gratification that suchan audience listened to his address on "TheJoy of Living," in which he stressed thosejoys of the higher type that can come onlyto men and women whose ideals and aspira tions are typified by membership in PhiBeta Kappa..The society now has ninety-three chapters and more than forty thousand members.The Triennial Council takes place nextSeptember in Cleveland, Ohio, and Dr.Shepardson, who is vice-president of theSenate, and Dr. Slaught, who is retiringpresident of the Chapter, will be Chicagodelegates to this important session, wherearrangements will be begun for an appropriate celebration of the One Hundred andFiftieth anniversary of the society.The Chicago chapter now numbers 956,of whom 77 were admitted during the year1921-22. The officers for 1922-23 are:Benjamin Stites Terry, president ; EdgarJohnson Goodspecd, vice-president; GeorgeLinnaeus Marsh, secretary-treasurer, and Elizabeth McPike, newly elected alumnae member of a permanent standing committee ofsew en (including officers) who execute thebusiness of the Chapter during the year.Alumni Clubs Reunion ActivitiesTwelve clubs held special meetings ReunionWeek, by present reports.

Suppose that thru the officesof an influential friend, arrangements were made for you to stepin and immediately occupy the position you intendedtraining to fill— right in the organization of a big corporation—with a complete department under your orders.Say that by your side were placed, as your instructorsand guides, several high grade accountants — men ofnational reputation — their sole duty being to train andequip you.With these men instructing you in proper principles —Jhen, you yourself exercising your own judgment inhandling transactions and solving problems as they arosein your daily work— do you get the idea? You would beacquiring experience right along with the bed rock fundamentals of the profession.Sitting in the chair of authority — dealing with actualbusiness— learning by applying what you learned— withexperts correcting your errors, commending good work,guiding you aright through all the ramifications, routineand emergency situations of the entire accounting fieldand making you make good every step of the way — mind—not in a class room, but right in a business office whereyou would be actually doing the work you were trainingfor ——wouldn't you, at the end of a year or so in this situation be much farther ahead than men who had spentThe LaSalle Problem Method gives you self-confidence — Practical, usable knowledge —because it makes you an experienced man.years seeking the same knowledge in the old, hard,nnd-out-for yourself" way?You can answer these questions-your good sense tellsyou that the situation described would make you apractical man — sure, certain and confident — able andcapable of holding down any situation the accountingfield offered.And that is why the LaSalle Problem Method makespractical men. Simply because the procedure outlinedabove is followed— exactly.True you do your work at home. True, the expertswho help you are located here in Chicago.Nevertheless, under the LaSalleProblem Method you are actuallyoccupying the position you aretraining to fill, whether it be in theaccountancy field, or traffic. or business management, or law, or correspondence—irrespective of whatyou are studying you are acquiringprinciples and applying them inactual business under the watchfuleyes and helpful guidance of menbig in your chosen field.And when you have completedyour LaSalle work, you can truthfully say that you are not onlya thoroly trained man, but anexperienced man — you know thebed-rock principles and you haveused them all — they are familiartools in your hands.A LaSalle man can walk in anywhere with confidence. He doesnot feel the uncertainty and fearthat arise when one faces the new and unknown. Underthe Problem Method he has explored his chosen fieldon his own feet— the questions, the problems, thedifficulties — he has met, faced and conquered them all.His experience makes him know that altho he may beassuming a new position at higher pay, the duties of thatposition are an old, familiar story.Experience is cash capital in business.There are only two ways to get it.One is the old, slow, uncertain way. The man whochooses to learn a branch of business by picking it upbit by bit as he goes along, finds the years slip by fasterthan he thought and sometimes his progress not as sureas he had anticipated. For all the* bits of knowledge"he sought may not have come his way.The other road is short, sure and certain. It lies thruthe Problem Method, distinctive with LaSalle ExtensionUniversity.
