The Observatory site comprises 71acres. Dr. .Edwin Brant Frost, Professor of Astrophysics, is the Director. In thefirst quarter-century of its service, just closed, the Observatory has taken rank amongthe' foremost observatories of the world in its contribution to astronomy and astro-physics.University of ChicagoMagazineTheDECEMBER, 1922 No.2VOL. xv•\Vithin the last two weeks or so a greatdeal of adverse criticism was aroused againstthe University because ofNeeds and an ill-advised and entirelyOPPortunities unauthorized editorial which, appeared in the Daily M a-�Ron. This unfortunate editorial, rashlyl11spired" by the, tremendous demand fortnore seats at Chicago football games,gat.ed that a stadium is 110t wanted at thenIversity nor does the University care toaCC�)tnmodat'e the public at games, that theUnIversity is not related to the city of Chi­c�gO, and that the University has plenty1 !l!0ney and hence would not welcome ateg�tImate income from athletics. This edi-onal caused such a wide-spread attack��ainst the University that it has requiredt/. spontaneously combined efforts of thet nIversity authorities, the alumni, and the� uden! body to convince the public thate�h 'edItorial did not in any way representthIt �r the facts or the general attitude ofe InstItutlOn.v S� far as the public is concerned, the Uni-ersIty desires to accommodate as manypeloPle at the football games as can be prop­er y provided for, whether by use of thenew Grant Park Stadium now being erected,or, perhaps, by building a stadium of its�wn. . So far as a stadium is concerned,. lere IS no particular objection provided it�s .�ot. emphasized, either in interest or con-rIuU�lOns, as against the, very serious andpreSSl11g needs of the Universitv in the�ay of hospital, laboratory, classroom,' li­rary, and other facilities of an educational�ature. In due time, in fact, the general�ol gram of development along' all linesWI I be announced by a special committeerow being appointed from the trustees, theaculty and the alumni. Unquestionably a � �COMMENT�, �Istadium will be a part, in one way or an­other, of this great University program­a program in which all alumni will have anopportunity to cooperate for the advance­ment of their institution.When the Maroon editoria I stated thatthe University was not related to the cityof Chicago, that it "is not an integral partof the city" because it receives no moneyfrom taxation, the present. writer f-elt likeurging' a University regulation requiringall students to read Goodspeed's "Historyof the University of Chicago." It is true,of course, that we receive no funds throughtaxation. But the University was practi­cally organized by Chicagoans, most ofthe buildings and grounds worth millionsof dollars have been donated by Chicagoans,the Noyes war service scholarships camefrom a Chicagoan, most all of the trusteeshave been and are Chicago citizens; morethan one-third of the students come fromthe city; through the University College,through lectures, special investigations andotherwise, the 1] niversity makes every effortto serve the Chicago public; thousands ofour alumni are now citizens of Chicago;and, indeed, the whole University programhas been designed as a contribution to anda definite part of the life of the city of Chi­cago .As mentioned above, another of �he dam­aging statements made was that "the U ni­versity has plenty of money." The fact isthat the University has plenty of need ofmoney. It is no exaggeration to state thatif any group donated ten million dollars tothe U niversitv it could soon account forevery penny 'expended on some vital edu­cational need, and still show many impor­tant needs unsatisfied. It is not surprisingthat the erroneous and harmful "rolling in4546 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEwealth" idea about the University has goneabroad so glibly when a student editor,who ought to be familiar with the seriousfa. ct s, writes as quot-ed. Most likely it willcome as a great surprise to even manystudents and alumni, as well as the generalpublic, to learn that the University is con­stantly in most serious need of funds.In view of the general situation, the spe­cial committee now being organized willhave an opportunity to start a movementthat will really mark the second great periodin the history of the University. It shouldaccomplish two things: First, bring a fullrealization to the alumni and the public ofall the needs o� the institution as requiredby the large - general program of develop­ment;. and, second, point out, as well aspossible, the ways and means for obtainingthe necessary funds to meet those needs.In the scheme of endeavor then to follow,the alumni will rightfully be called upon toassume their proper share in the responsibil­ity for fullest achievement. The alumni ofother large universities have loyally risen tosuch occasions-and we are fullv confidentthat our alumni can and will do likewise ;that at the proper time our alumni will nothe found wanting in loyal and enthusiasticsupport. -* * *One of the best instances of how analumni club can serve the University oc-curred at Columbus, on the oc-Let's cas ion of the Chicago-OhioClub State football game a monthTogether ago. More in detail regardingthe services of our Central OhioAlumni Club on that occasion will be foundelsewhere in this number of the Magazine.The care' bestowed on our visiting footballteam, the welcome everywhere accorded.Chicago visitors to Columbus and at thegame, the great Chicago dinner which fol­lowed the game, bringing together, as itdid, alumni from many sections of the coun­try, were all the result of the work of theofficers of that alumni club. The point is­that when Chicago went to Columbus itfound a well-organized alumni group allworking together, prepared to serve only as such an organization could or would serveChicagoans. - When that club was organ­ized such a special service was not antici­pared. But the chance came-and the clubwas 'there, ready, willing and able to takecare of it in every way. And so it must bewith every alumni club. A year or moremay pass without any chance for notableclub accorrrplishment ; yet at any time someoccasion may arise_ where the organizedalumni in any large C0111111 unity will begiven the right of way to express theirChicago loyalty. If there is no club suchservices can not be effectively rendered. Itrequires organization, mutual Chicago in­terest born of such organization and associa­tion from time to time at club meetings toenable an alumni group to assist and coop­erate as the alumni naturallv would desire.And in the meantime, it is always good tomeet fellow alumni in whose minds andhearts the gray and ivied Quadrangles holda lasting place. We say it again-"Let'sclub together I"* * *A letter in our November "Letter Box,"from Mrs. Marjorie Coonley MacLeod, '17,suggested an introductoryFreshman survey course for Freshmen.Introductory Our attention has since beenCourses called to a favorable reporton this subject, entitled "Spe­cial 'Courses for Freshmen," prepared byProfessor Ernest H. Wilkins of the Univer­sity of Chicago. This report is reprintedfrom the October, 1922, Bulletin of theAmerican Association of University Profes­sors, and treats quite fully of such coursesas are now being given at Columbia, Prince­ton, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Williams, andother universities and colleges. The reportconcludes: "It is the hope of the Commit­tee as stated above, that each individual in­stitution which may be interested in thisquestion may work out its own problem,and that in so doing' it may derive helpfrom the facts recorded and the suggestionsmade herein.

Many ofthe latter were Harvard and Yale alumni:V�o live in the Middle West, and wl�o!Olned in supporting <?ur f�:)Qtba�l �eam 111Its gallant demonstration, 111 th is instanceat least, of the superiority of eastern foot­hall OVer the best product of the West. Andthe significance of that demonstration, frolpthe standpoint of the alumni of eastern u.l11-yersities who reside west of the Alleghenies,IS perhaps more keenly appreciated by th�mthan by their eastern brethre_n,-such. a VIC­tory as that scored by Princeton 111 theWestern metropolis makes life so muchpleasanter for them. After saying which,We hasten to add that Princeton was every­where most cordiallv welcomed in Chicago,that both on and off the football field thebest of good feeling was manif�sted. .Therewas of course keen intersectional rIvalry,but all in the spirit of good sportsmanship.President and Mrs. Hibben were theg.ll·ests of President Judson of the Univer­SIty of Chicago. Dr. Judson was an ho�­ored guest at the Princeton dinner on FrI­day night and felicitously welcomed thePrInceton men to Chicago, and between th.ehalves at the football game" the two Prest-. def!-ts exchanged visits. These official ccur­testes were reflected in the cheers of theChicago students for Princeton and of thePrinceton crowd for Chicago, and in the�raceful action of the Chicago student band111 fOrmino- a huge "P" on the field andplaYing the Princeton song, "Chargethrough the Line,"-they played i� veryWell .... It's a good thing for the inhabi­tants of Manhattan Island (just for exam­Ple) to be reminded that Altoona, Pa., (just,for. example) is not the farthest outpost. ofenhghtened civilization' it's a good thingfor East and V/est to �eet; and it's an es­Pecially crood thing for the undergraduatesof East �nd West to intermingle,-and for the alumni too for they are only boys of anolder growth; 'it broadens their horizon andmakes for better citiz·enship. Our under­zraduates and the alumni from the East�ho were in Chicago last week-end cameback with a very wholesome respect for theMiddle West,-a feeling which, �e may l?esure, is fully reciprocated for Princeton 111Chicago, and throughout our boundlesswestern territory.As to Chicago TeamOct. 28 on Stagg Field, Chicago, Prince­ton defeated Chicago 21-18 in one of themost thril1ing games of football ever played.Each team scored three touchdowns.Princeton's margin of three points wasearned by three goals kicked by Ken Smith,one after each touchdown. Chicago missedall three goals.Even those who watched, or rather, lis­tened to this game in Princeton (the won­ders of wireless telephony were. never bet­ter exemplified) were weak and_ tremblingwhen in the last few seconds of play, Chi­cago 'was held for downs less than a, yafdfrom the Princeton goal. What those whosaw the game with their own eyes musthave suffered I can scarcely imagine.Surely this Princeton team, whatever. it maydo in the future, can not surpass Its col­lective effort in those last few desperateseconds. We who listened on UniversityField were praying that time would hecalled. \Ve are glad now-and proud-thatChicago had four downs to try to get theball over the line. All the same I am get­ting too old to wish again to undergo a likeexperience.It may be the last intersectional gamethat Princeton will play. As such thePrinceton team carried the hopes of theentire eastern section, if the newspapersmay be believed. While these same news­papers are now proclaiming that Princeton'svictory represents a tr iumph of eastern foot­ball over western, it must not be forgottenthat only a week before Iowa defeated Yale6-0. As a matter of fact it is doubtfulwhether there is such a thing as eastern orwestern football. In the beginning easterncoaches invaded the West., Alonzo. Stagghimself is a graduate of Yale. The tide hasturned now and a number : of eastern 111Stt­tutions are coached at present by graduatesof western colleges. If this game provedanything at all it proved that a fine forward-(Continued 011 page 51)48 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEALUMNINOTICEAssociation Dues and Club DuesTo avoid confusion as to dues', which hasrecently been brought to our attention, wewish to announce that dues for membershipin our alumni associations do not includedues in our alumni or alumnae clubs. Theassociation dues cover association member­ship and subscription to the Magazine. Ouralumni and alumnae clubs are financed sepa­rately and independently from our associa­tions; such club memberships are paidaccording to the dues each club may chargefor membership. In all instances such clubdues are small and accord special club privi­leges in each case. All alumni and alumnaeare most cordially invited to join the clubsin their vicinity and to take part in theirspecial meetings and programs.That Columbus Club Football DinnerAll of the five hundred alumni and stu­dents who attended the Football Dinnergiven by our Central Ohio Alumni Clubon November 11th, after the Chicago-OhioState football game, will agree that thisgathering was without question one of thebest and most enthusiastic Chicago gather­ings ever held. The dinner, which tookplace at the Chittenden Hotel, was a greatclimax to a great Chicago day at Columbus,following the Chicago 14-9 victory overOhio State in the rre w Stadium that after­noon.Professor Edgar H. McNeal, '97, Ph.D'02, President" of the Central Ohio AlumniClub, presided, both ably and humorously.The first speaker wa_s William S. Harman,'00, who welcomed the alumni and studentsand told them that by unanimous consent of.the city authorities "Columbus was theirsduring their stay." His fine welcome wasin the cordial spirit in which Chicagoanshad been received throughout their visit.Harold H. Swift, '07, President of the Boardof Trustees, then spoke on the common in­terest all alumni of the University, regard­less of what department they had been con­nected with, should have in the Universityas a whole. It was a forceful talk andbrought home to all present the desirabilityof welding together our alumni in the com­mon interests of Chicago. "Teddy" Linnthen delighted the crowd with reminiscencesof his experiences athletic while an under­graduate, and told of the Chicago fightingspirit. The closing speaker was Mr. Stagg,in whose honor and for the team, the dinner.was given. The' Old Man told of experi­ences in coaching teams, of the difficulties RSoften encountered in overcoming the"breaks of the game," and of the fine spiritshown by the players, a spirit, he pointedout strongly, quite in contrast to unjustcriticisms of them that sometimes wer-eloosely rumored about. It was a wonderfultalk, in the Old Man's usual plain, straight­from-the-shoulder style, and was followedby great cheering.The members of the team then were calledupon, each one confessing that it was easierto play football than to make an impromptuspeech. At the request of Mr. Stagg, theteam arose and gave a Chicago cheer for"Bill" Harman, who had so loyally lookedout for them, to the last detail, during theirstay in Columbus. Mr. Stagg and the en­tire team stated with heartfelt appreciationthat no alumnus had 'ever shown more in­terest and assistance to a visiting Chicagoteam than had William S. Harman, '00.The work which the officers of the Cen­tral Ohio Club did in getting up this dinnerwill long be remembered and deeply appre­ciated' by all. President McNeal, RoderickPeattie, '14, the club secretary, Grace E.Chandler, '10, who had charge of the an­nouncements, and William S. ("Bill") Har­man, who cooperated with Peattie 0t?- �hedinner, all deserve fully the appreciativecheers .they got in turn. They set a realstandard in such club activity-"Long liveour Central Ohio Alumni Club !"Annual Chicago Alumni Football DinnerThe Annual Football Dinner, given bythe Chicago Alumni Club in honor of Mr.Stagg and the team, was held on Wednes­day evening, November 22nd, at the Uni­versity Club.

Harman, '00, who had donesuch excellent work for the visiting alumniand the football team at Columbus, and whohad come to Chicago to attend the Wiscon­sin game. The table was most attractivelydecorated as a football field, with the play­ers lined up for the kick-off period.Because of the discussion abroad concern­ing the need for a stadium for the Chicagofootball games, the conversation turned toa general consideration of this question.President Judson stated that if the matterof a stadium is made a part of the largeUniversity program and would not interferewith the realization of that program throughthe cooperation of the alumni, there was noparticular· objection to a stadium. Mr.Stagg expressed the belief that a stadiumcould he made the means of bringing a largeamount of funds annually to the Univer­sity. All present were of the opinion thatthe time had come when the University pro­gram of which a stadium might well be apart, 'shoul.d be definitely settled upon, an­nounced, and ways and means planned forits fullest realization. I t was agreed that aspecial commitee should be appointed, withrepresentation from the trustees, the faculty,and the alumni, to consider and present thewhole matter. Steps are now being takento appoint this most important committee.1fr. Rov O. West, a prominent Chicagocitizen and leading member of the Univer­sity community, showed the plans for thenew Grant Park Stadium now being erected.Others present at this dinner were: CharlesF.

This might fit in well enough withthe preconceived notions of a number offcribes and prophets were it not for the un-ortunate fact that the conservative East,:epresented by Princeton, �put on the pass­lng game and won with it over the daring,rec�less West, represented by Chicago,whlch scored all her points with the mostconservative type of line-plunging. And bythe way there can have been in the historyof the game very few exhibitions of individ­ual line-plunging power greater than thatof John Thomas. I am sincerely sorry thatI did not go to Chicago because, by staying1ome, I missed watching this man in action.do not lose sight of the fact that no man,no matter how great, can repreatedly plungethrough a well-coached line for gains ofirom five to fifteen yards unless the line inront of him is performing miracles. Be­fore the team went to Chicago we knew in­need that the Princeton line had a great dealth learn. But we fancied that most of whatkey had to learn related to offensive play ..o one at Princeton conceived it possiblethat any team could punch out three earnedtouchdowns between tackle and tackle.I t is difficult to speak of individuals whenall did so well.

LaSalle St.,Chicago, Ill.Nov. 21) 1�22.Dear Mr. Pierrot:Mayan "entirely unknown" alumnus 'com­ment on the second paragraph of your ad­mirable article on "Football Tickets" in theNovember number of the University ofChicago Magazine?Weare all agreed, I believe, that theAlumni should have preference as to seatsfor our football games, but when we beginto draw the line between alumni we aretreading on dangerous ground. Just whatconstitutes a "prominent alumnus"? Is itthe size of his income tax, the accuracy andfrequency of the reports of his comings an.dgoings and doings in the daily. press, hisscientific or literary achievements, or theefficiency of his bootlegger?Vve attend football games as alumni, tosupport Chicago's team, to yell. Chicago'syells and our "priorities," if we must havethem', should he based on the regularity withwhich we attend games and support ourteam. The alumnus who buys tickets for allgames is entitled to more consideration thanthe alumnus who goes only to Princeton andIllinois games.If there is any way in which the presentsystem can be improved it should be to. as­sign the better seats to alumni who buy tick­ets for all games, but I think that if weattempt to draw distiJ?ctions. based on"prominence" we are doing an injustice tothe thousands of mere alumni who are justas keen and consistent supporters of t.heOld Man and the team as any alumnus. withthe whole alphabet after his name, SIX ci­phers after his income figures, or a member-ship upon every committee., .As you know we. have over 3q Chicagoalumni in our orgamzation and this opmiouis shared by each of them that I have ap­proached on the subject.Yours very truly,W. D. Dalgetty, '17.Again About Priorities Among' AlumniDecember 5, 1922.The Uinversity of Chicago Magazine.Attention of The Editor.My dear Sir: _.,I noticed in the November, 1922, Issue, 111the section headed "Events and Comments,"some discussion of the distribution of foot­ball tickets and particularly I noticed inthe second 'paragraph of the discussion the following sentences: "Undoubtedly+-and �heCommittee admits it-there were seernmg'injustices' done in personal instances. Prom­inent alumni found themselves in less de­sirable seats. while others almost entirelyunknown oc�upied much better seats."I was very much surprised to find thissort of humor mixed in an otherwise seriousarticle.This article was, I assume, a serious discus­sion of the difficulties of the distribution, offootball tickets. Certainly it has been takento be such by the alumni of a number ofother colleges with whom I have discussedit. The language quoted has been particu­larly interesting to some of the alumni ofother universities with whom I have had oc­casion to discuss the general question of dis­tribution of football tickets. Most of themseem to have taken this statement with re­gard to the distribution of �eats to promi­nent alumni as being a serious announce­men t of the wish of the University to givegood seats to more prominent alumni andto give th� less desirabl;, seats to "othersalmost entirely unknown.I have heard nothing but extremely un­favorable comment on this course. Thealleged snobbish institutions of the E.astnever at their very worst attempted anythingof this sort. I have in discussing the mat­ter constantly maintained that the statementin question was not serious but that it wasmerely inserted by the writer as a joke. Ibelieve, however, that it would be well inan early issue of the magazine if some state­ment was made to clear up any doubt on thispoint. Certainly the University cannot putitself in the position of attempting to dis­tinguish between its alumni in the matter ofthe distribution of football tickets.If the good seats are to go to prominentalumni who is to be the judge of the neces­sary degree of prominence? How prominentmust an alumnus be before he secures seatsfrom which he can see the game? Must hehave been prominent in college, or is it suffi­cient that he has become prominent sincethen? Must he have been a good student,or must he be a scholar· now, or will it besufficient if he has let one of the "proms"?Must the alumnus be rich in order to besufficiently prominent to secure good seats?If he must be rich, must he have inheritedhis money or must he have earned it?Clearly, there would be a great deal of com:plication in determining the exact degree orprominence that must. be possessed by thealumnus to permit him to secure good seats.All of these points have been suggested toTHE LETTER BOXtne bv alumni of some of the alleged snob­bish eastern universities, and in reply I hayeonly been able to say that the Universityproposes to give tickets to alumni quite ir­respective of their respective degrees ofprominence, and that the statement whichcrept into the article in question was meantto be humorous.I wish again to suggest that at an earlydate an authoritative statement may be made�enying the extremely unfortunate imp lica­uon contained in this article.Very truly yours,Leslie M. Parker, '17, J.D. '18.140 S. Dearborn St.,Chicago.[Editor's Note: The statement in question, com,mented .upon by the two preceding letters, simplysoug.ht to point out that, under the plan as adopted andadmInistered, the "injustices" done to prominent�lumni in their getting poor seats were merely "seem­IJ?g" injustices. However, there is really anotherside. to this question which perhaps deserves consid­eratIOn, and it will be discussed in our next number.]How Would You Answer This?Dear Mr. Pierr ot :I am enclosing my check for Twentydhopars to pay the rest of my Life Member­s .Ip SUbscription to the Alumni Fund.

The letter, I amcertain, could not have been improved uponin conveying the "What's What & Why"idea into the somewhat befogged minds ofthe lethargic German university authorities.That it has completely fulfilled its purposeis demonstrated by news which I receivedyesterday-that my entrance application hasbeen accepted.My case, however, may be compared totha t of the heroine in the "movie" thriller,who is rescued from one unpleasant situa­tion only to find herself in another. Itseems that the (aforesaid) authorities hererequire all students in chemistry to passa rather long-winded examination beforebeing allowed to do research leading to thedegree "Ph.D." from this institution, Thepreparation for, and the carrying out ofthis examination, which is composed ofpractical as well as, theoretical tests, re-,quires from three to four months; and as.my stay abroad is limited, I am clearly in110 position to devote so much time solelyto a review, which I should have to repeatbefore taking the "Doctor's" examination,Moreover, I have neither intention nor de­sire to take a higher degree from this uni­versity-my plan being to take the Doctor'sexamination at' Chicago when I return.Life in Germany is just one money­market report after another. Prices changedaily-always in the same direction-up­wards. A suit of clothes costs now Mk.70 oOO.-the salary' of the Prime. Ministerin' 1913. Other prices range proportion­ally. Of course, from our point of view,things are very reasonably priced here; for­eign students in the sciences, however, mustpurchase all instruments and apparatuswhich they use in their research, themselves,besides paying their tuition in gold values.The most striking thing about the Ger­man universities today (outside of the de­plorable lack of equipment) is that the greatrna jor ity of students are graduates-thereare" very few beginners. The r.eason forthis is that most of the professional menin Germany are at present scarcely able tomake a living; and the. young people, know­ing this choose busmess' careers, ratherthan sta�vation in the midst of science orart. All indications seem to show thatunless the economic situation here improvesconsiderably within the ne:ct year ?r two,Germany will degenerate into an intellec-tua! desert.I fear that this letter has already rambledmuch too far, so will put "the brakes" onthe typ�writer. . Allow me to thank youagain for your kindness.Most sincerely,Julius Hyman, '22.(Continued on page 78)54 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO 111AGAZINE+"_IIU_IIU_IIII_IIU_III1_IIN_IIU_IIM_IIH_IIU_IIlI_IIII_IIU_IIII_IIII_11II-1I11-uu-nU-.-I'H-IIH-HH-IIU-llII-IIII_IIII_IItI_UJI_MH_+! =I Ticket Troubles-Elsewhere I= I+_IID_IIN_It_U_IIH_HII_HII_llI_III1_IIU_IIII_I_IIII_H"_IUI_IIIt_UII-UU-Ull-HII-"II-III1-IIII-UII-IIII-IIII-HII-."I-"II-IIII-IIII-11+AT YALE(From Yale Alumni Weekly)The Tremendous Demand for TicketsThis year again, foreseeing another andheavier demand than before, the Yale TicketDepartment prepared for it by taking thenatural course of cutting down the profes­sional-school allotment and the non-gradu­ates from three to two tickets apiece, so as togive the undergraduates and graduates thefirst chance. It was expected that this rul­ing would permit the first degree graduatesof the College and Sheff to have three seatseach, and the application blanks so informedthem.But it became obvious soon after the shoalsof applications began 'to come in, that eventhis retrenchment would not suffice, and thenext step was to cut the College and Scien­tific School graduates as well from threetickets to two.And here the trouble began. 'For inas­much as this step was contrary to the gen­eral expectation when the application blankswere sent out, it caused embarrasing predica­ments among the graduates who had askedtwo other persons to accompany them. Oneof them simply had to be "un-invited."How difficult that task was is indicated by. the hundreds of letters and telegrams whichthe Ticket Department has received, askingthat an exception be made in this or thatparticular case-which was of course me­chanically impossible, as well as unfair toall the others equally affected. The reasonsurged ranged from the pathetic to the ridicu­lous (except to the applicant!); each .per­fectly good in the' mind of the writer who�an!s his tickets, but all together fo;ming,111 VIew of the actual situation in the ticketo ffic e, a curious collection.One. loyal Yale man tabulated, with sub­head�, el�ven. points bearing upon his J?leafor hIS third ticket, the final and most urgentone being that his two children, whom hehad invited to attend with him, would nowbe undergraduates at Yale had it not sohappened that they are attending Smith.Another, who had invited his daughter andone of her girl friends, ended his letter withthe following postscript: "If you cannot letme have three seats, can't you at least letme have three tickets good for two seatsonly? My daughter and I are lightweights(our combined weights being less than 200pounds). and the three of us could easilysqueeze 111to two seats."One disappointed graduate, who had neg­lected to fill out his application blank in ac­cordance with the regulations, wrote: "Yale sends representatives to us at times to cheerus up, b-ut I think a couple of tickets oncein a while, for which we are willing to pay,would be more likely to open our wallets thanall the speeches and visitations. I presume Ihad better encourage my son to prepare -forPrinceton, and then probably he can take hisDad to see the game."Evert an occasional member of the Fac­ulty, that austere group which seems to theundergraduates to be the embodiment ofmeticulous accuracy, finds it impossible to�diev� that, because h� d�d not do .his part111 filling out the application blank he willhave to give up the tickets he might have hadto some one who did follow instructions.The sound of Faculty pleading would nodoubt delight the heart of a Freshman whoforgot to s�gn �is n<l:me to the honor pledgeor to turn 111 hIS assigned work on time.These, and scores of like "reactions" tothe inevitable this year were the Ticket De­partment's only ray Of light in the darkhours they have been spending-for fromtheir point of view there is no particularpleasure in .rnaking people uncomfortable,or even in letting them incur the results oftheir own neglect of the rules.AT HARVARD(From Harvard Alumni Bulletin)"Football TicketsTo the Editor of the Bulletin:Having drawn some exceedingly poorseats at the Stadium for Saturday, and neverhaving drawn a good seat, even for an un­important game, while I find men with littleor no interest in Harvard College occupyingexcellent seats, I am prompted to make asuggestion that I have not seen in any ofthe numerous letters to the Bulletin on thissubject. -The Harvard College teams are still spokenof as varsrty teams, perhaps to distinguishthem from the freshmen teams. In mytime there were varsity teams, men fromthe professional schools played on them, andthere was undoubtedly a general interest inHarvard events among men 111 the profes­sional schools. Today the teams are purelyCollege teams. Old varsity players, whethergraduates of Harvard College or not, aretaken care of through the Varsity Club.Why should men who have -graduated fromother �olleges, have never had any corinec­tion with Harvard College, and have no in­terest, other than an hostile one in theCollege, be given seats for purely 'HarvardCollege events merely because they have at-(Continued on page 76)b A magazine of literature which shall reallyhe repres'entative of the best that is said andt. ought among the students of the Univer­sIty of Chicago is a hard thing' to get underway..

"Sol­itaire"-critical musings by an undergradu­ate-is remarkable, no less. And an analy­sis of Mr. John Alden Carpenter's musicalfantasy, "Krazy Kat," will, I think, giveMr. Carpenter as much pleasure as it cer­tainly will many others.The business management of "The Circle"is sensible. Published by members of thestaff of The Daily Maroon from the Maroonoffices, the magazine has no overhead. Itspresent editor-in-chief, Lennox Grey, '23, isan unusually steady and competent youngman of conservative but sure taste. Thesuccess of "The Circle" will really be de­cided by the alumni. If they subscribe toit, and contribute to it, we shall all be pres­ently proud of it. It will be publishedmonthly and the subscription price is a dol­lar for the remainder of the 'year.

Was born at Eastport, Maine, in 1853.gam like Dean Small, he was the son ofa clergyman. After attending grammarschool at Camden Maine and preparatoryschool at Cobur;l Insdtute, Waterville,�aine, he entered Colby College at Water­vIlle. He was graduated A.B. at Colby in1873, and A.M. in 1876. After several years� teaching and service as principal at FerryP all, Lake Forest, Highland Hall, HighlandC a:k, and then the Yale School for Boys,. hlcago, he was ordained a Baptist min­Ister in 1884, and in the same year becamePiofessor of English in the old University� �hicago; he was professor of Latin it:i lat Institution until the old University closedsn 1889. From 1889 to 189,2 he was profes­o�rlo� �nglish Literature in the Unive,rsity1ltnOlS.g Professor Butler is among "that famousroup of educators" who joined the Uni- versity of Chicago faculty at the time in­struction started in 1893. He became Direc­tor of the University Extension Divisionand it is largely to his ability and energythat this division of theeducational work of theUniversity was SOstrongly organized andhas since been so suc­cessfully conducted. In1895 he was called toColby College, his almamater, as Pres ide n t,which distinguished posi­tion he held for six years,doing much to build upthat college. Colby con­ferred upon him the de­gree of D.D. in 1895, andthe degree of L.L.D. in19'03. Last June Dr. But­ler was the commence­ment orator at Colby.In 1901 Dr. Butler re­.turned to the Universityof Chicago as professorof education, and in 1905he was made Bean of theCoIl e g e of Education,which branch of the Uni­versity at once advancedunder the influence of hisprogressive organizingdirection. In 1916 hewas made Dean of the .

He isat present Professor of Education and Dbnof the University College. His great serviceto the University, therefore,' since his re­turn in. 1901, has been unbroken for a periodof over twenty-one years.In 1881 he married Florence Sheppard ofHighland Park; three children, Sheppard,Albert, and Frederic came of this marriage.Mrs. Butler died in .1902, and in the follow­ing year Dr. Butler married Lillian M .Googins of Chicago; there are three childrenof his second marriage, Jeanette, Franklin,and Nathaniel, Jr. His son Sheppard, A.M.'os, is now the dramatic critic on the ChicagoTribune.Dean Butler has held a number of posi­tions of honor in the educational world andis the author of a first-year Latin text anda large number of important articles and re-(Continued on page 75)Dean Nathaniel Butler58 [HE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe 1922 Football Team,.Top Row (left to right): Coaches Crisler, Norgren, Stagg, Molander, Trainer j ohnsornThird Row: Dickson, Gowdy, King, Zorn, Pondelik,Second Row: Strohmeier Dawson, J.

Stagg field.The Ohio Game.The Ohio game was second in interest onlyto the Princeton game, and kept the howlingmob of Chicago rooters who journeyed toColumbus to witness the game in a highstate of excitement. Although beaten in thefirst half, the Maroons came back strong inthe third quarter with a dazzling offense ofpasses and end runs, that enabled the Ma­roons to emerge on the long end of a 14-9score.Coach Wilee employed a special defense to stop the rushes of John Thomas by play­ing his center back with the secondary de­fense, and the line plunges of the Maroonstar were stopped. This defense forced theMaroons to play an open game, and it sawHarry Thomas and Jim Pyott play the lead­ing roles. Pondelik, Fletcher, Zorn andStrohmeier also covered themselves withglory in this fiercely fought contest.The Illinois GameMainly through the great line plungingof Bi ll Zorn and John Thomas, the Maroonssucceeded in scoring a well deserved 9-0victory over Zuppke's fighting Illini beforepacked stands at Stagg Field. It was thefourth straight Big Ten victory for CoachStagg's men. The superiority of the Ma­roons was evident from the start of hos-, , ATHLETICStilities, and the Illini, fighting though in­experienced, were forced to give' way to thePowerful drives of the Maroon backs. Twicethe Illini held for downs within their five­Yard mark.After an Illini pass was intercepted by�trohmeier, John Thomas ripped the IndianlIne for 23 yards in two attempts, and on aateral pass play, Pyott to Harry Thomas,the latter skirted end for a touchdown .. Theadditional three points were scored by�horke who drop kicked from the 35-yardInc earlier in the game.The Wisconsin GameThe final game of the season saw the Ma­�oons and the Badgers wage a great duel ont tagg Field, with neither side scoring. Bothcams failed on attempts to score, when Barrof the Badgers made a wild kick from the�O-yard line, and Rhorke's attempt from the8-Yard mark was short.The Maroons were outclassed in the first�alf of the game, but returned after a speechy the "Old Man," and played the Badgersofff their feet during most of the remaindero the fray. Zorn starred on defense for'thbe Maroons, and was the only Chicago mana le to gain consistently.The tie game knocked the Maroons fromCha�pionship consideration, as the Uni­verSIty of Iowa team completed its Big Ten�chedule with five victories, and Michiganad four wins to her credit.f At the close of the season the Department�h Physical Culture and Athletics awardede "C" to nineteen men. The new men toffceive the award for superior ability are:ranklin Gowdy, tackle; Lloyd Rhorke, end�nd guard;' Joseph Pondelik, guard; Camp­b ell Dickson" end; and Harry Thomas, half-ack, Four men received the award forfhod ability and service over a period ofI ree Or four years.

I-I- -I,,-'IIII-UII-IIII-IIU-UII-MII-IIII-IIII-IIII-IIII-IIII-IIII-".{.The football season of 1922 has been ofgreat interest to millions of people; of spe­cial interest to the particular friends of theUniversity of Chicago. From the point ofview of victorious accomplishment it hasbeen above our average, and from the pointof view of sport-drama, remarkable.Two games-those with Princeton andOhio State-e-were heartbreaking in the in­tensity of their thrill. The Princeton game.was probably the most exciting ever playedon Stagg field, and the Ohio game was notmuch less of a disturber of the pulses. Theothers were the usual run of football asplayed by high-class elevens nowadays, dis­appointing in spots but on the whole amaz­ingly enjoyable in the variety of their tech­nique and the fierceness of their contention.The conference teams I. should rank asIollows : First, Michigan; second, Chicago,Iowa, and Wisconsin, on a par; fifth, Minne­sota; sixth, Ohio; seventh, Illinois; eighth,Northwestern; ninth, Purdue and Indianaon a par. I very much doubt if any teamin the east playing Michigan, Chicago, Wis­consin or Iowa, could score four victoriesin ten games, and I have no hesitation what-'ever in giving my opinion that Michigan is,with the possible exception of mysteriousNebraska, the best, team in the country.The Chicago team, which is for some un­known reason the target for more. dirtthrown by Chicago newspapers than anyother eleven in the country, has shown itselfan aggregation of great power, endless cour­age, but (as a group) little brilliance. Ex­cept in the Princeton game, it made fewmistakes of any consequence, but it neverrose to the inspiring heights. As for a num­ber of years now, it subordinated individualbrilliance to team play, which is the suc­cessful policy in the long run; as also for anumber of years, it concentrated its finestpowers on defense, which is also a soundenough policy. But the two in combinationtend to dim the, team's flash. It is like alocomotive in the daytime; the strange feel­ing of power which comes as one watchesthe same locomotive thundering through thedarkness behind a headlight is missing.There is, it is true, little doubt that JohnThomas will be Camp's selection for al l­American. Yet just as when last year Me­Guire was chosen and Crisler put on thethird eleven, we who have watched the gameswill be annoyed. .Splendid player and grandgentleman as John Thomas is, quite as much service has been rendered to victory this yearby Zorn; by Pyott, by Strohmeier, by HarryThomas, behind the line. One of IohnThomas' finest qualities is exhibited in" thecertainty that he would insist on this state­ment as much as I do.H one must pick out individual brillianciesfor notation, I personally would cite Pyott'shandling of punts. In two seasons he ha:;fumbled two, receiving both and making again; he has practically never been stoppedwithout a gain of at least a few yards; he hasaveraged a larger gain than any opponenthe has ever met; and he has caught at leastfive this year which verged on the miracu­lous. I have Mr. Stagg's word for it that"no man he has ever seen has handled puntsbetter." .In the line this evenness of excellence wassimilar. King emerges, it is true. He iscertainly the best center in the west-s-fiftyper cent better than he was last year. ButLewis (when not too much hurt to be keen)Pondelik, Gowdy, and (next to King)Fletcher, have all' been beautifully reliable.OUf ends, by reason of injuries and inexperi­ence have been less effective ; yet Rh<1rke'Sshowing against Illinois and Wisconsin.where circumstances forced him to undertakethe role, was warming to the heart.But the finest thing about the team hasbeen. what might be called its moral qual­ity. One hears a lot of talk about the goodeffect of football on character. As a matterof fact, football is full of muckerism. Thereare plenty of teams (clever teams and stupidteams both) which we refuse to play, andone we do play though we shouldn't, that art'muckerish by policy. The eleven at Chicagothis fall was a team of fighting gentlemen;the sort of fellows one would like to havetutor one's sons or take one's daughters todances, The professional spirit and thespirit of meanness are alike lacking in theirmake-up. That is what Mr. Stagg meant,I think, when he said he had never coacheda better team.Finally as to its accomplishment; we stoodas high as we have had any reason to stand.In the long run, and "induced" athletes, acommodity we do not deal in t , aside, footballvictory will rest with the heaviest battalions.Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa.have from three to two and a half times asmany male 'undergraduates to choose a teamfrom as we have. Guess the answer over aten-year period. Yet we were this seasonundefeated in the Conference; last seasonwe lost but one game; and if the freshmenthis year have the moral qualities of, thisyear's varsity as they certainly have thephysical, it is highly improbable that weshould lose more than one' game next year,if indeed we lose any.UNIVERSITY NOTES 61'Growth of the UniversityFacts of striking interest concerning thegrowth of the University since its founding,lIe printed in the report of the Universityress on President Harry Pratt Judson'sSpe-e�h at the thirtieth anniversary of theOpenmg of the institution..

R. Breslich. Within the last thirty years junior highschools have been started all over this coun­try. Broadly speaking, this new institu­tion combines into one school the seventh.eighth, and ninth grades. It aims to reor­ganize the subject-matter to be taught froma social standpoint; to develop courses andmethods which conform to the demands ofearlv adolescence; .to provide a type of workbest- adapted to the needs and abilities of aspecial group of pupils who are above theelementary grade of instruction but not yetready for high school work; to break awayfrom traditions and to admit only materialwhich can be justified upon sound pedagog­ical and psychological principles; and toeliminate, or at least diminish, waste of timein these three grades. The success of thejunior high school movement depends uponthe degree to which these aims are accomplished.With the coming of the junior highschools, teachers were confronted with thenecessity of supplying suitable courses ofstudy. Such courses have now been formu­lated by committees and writers of text­books. For a number of years the Depart­ment of Mathematics of the University HighSchool has been working on this problem.From the beginning, the fact has been recog­nized that a modern course cannot be madeup on the basis of tradition, conjecture, oropinion alone; that the problem calls forinvestigation and experimentation; that thematerial selected must be dependable 011the " basis of definite principles and that itmust be organized with, reference to thereal needs in' the life and studies of the chil­dren. It is hoped that the present schoolyear will see the completion of· this investi­gation.In constructing new courses, as in any newfield, mistakes are likely to occur. Many ofthese grow out of the attempt to compro­mise with the traditional courses, with theresult that no real reconstruction is takingplace. The Department has tried to settleall questions by careful- experimentation.Some of the most common mistakes madein 'the reconstruction of the mathematicscourses of the seventh, eighth, and ninthgrades are the following. In most of thenew courses the traditional arithmetic ofthe seventh, and even the eighth grade, hasbeen continued. Various reasons are ad­vanced to support this position. It is saidthat there is a decided advantage in hayingthe pupil feel that the work he is about to study in the junior high school is not verydifferent from the work of the sixth grade.However, this does not consider the largenumber of pupils hoping for a change andexpecting to study new subjects, especiallythose pupils who found arithmetic difficult.They would take up a new type of work withincreasing interest and enthusiasm.Fur therrnor e, it is said that the work ofthe sixth grade has not been done sufficientlywell and must be reviewed as a part of thebeginning seventh grade work. Experi­ments show that this review and proficiencyin the fundamentals can be attained muchbetter by supplying a new type of workwhich calls for continuous use of the formerarithmetic than by formal reviews coveringold work in the same old way. This methodalso does away with much of the .formaldrill work called for in most of the newcourses of study. Mastery of the funda­mentals in cfdthmetic in the junior highschool is no longer simply a drill under­taking, but a process of assimilation.A striking feature of some of the juniorhigh school courses is that advanced work inarithmetic precedes the study of algebraand geometry. Some phases of arithmeticinvolve more difficult reasoning than thefundamentals of algebra and geometry andmay better be given later when pupils havebecome familiar with the elements of thesesubjects and when their reasoning powersare better developed. Much of the commer­cial arithmetic is unessential or funda­mentally beyond the pupil's experience.Topics like stocks, bonds, exchange, com­pound interest, are foreign to the pupil atthis age, are seldom touched upon in futurecourses, and are not permanently retained.Too much time spent on them is thereforenot profitably employed, especially as faras training in arithmetic is concerned. Itis maintained that the usefulness of thesetopics is. so great in the later life of thepupils that they should be retained. Investi­gations show that much of the type of workis nonessential for future use and may beomitted without loss to the learner.Another common mistake made in organiz­ing the mathematics for the junior highschool is to have· .the arithmetic of theseventh and eighth grades followed by thetraditional algebra of the first year. ofthe senior high school or by demonstrativegeometry. Surely, some of the work nowtaught in the senior high school should bebrought down, but the traditional coursesin algebra and geometry are out of -theSCHOOL OF EDUCATION NOTESqUestion because they have been workedout for pupils several years older, and evenf?r them they have been open to-severe criti­ClSm. Algebra taught as an organized SC1-ence is to the pupil of junior high school agebut a wearisome iteration of meaninglesslUanipulation. The fundamental .concepts inboth subjects must be developed very grad­ually through wide experiences. The ap­proach to a typical study, must be gradualand easy. Geometry being the most avail­aQle material and being very concrete, shouldfurnish most of the application needed fortraining in arithmetic, and should be usedto make clear abstract 'algebraic principlesand processes. The greatest part oj thework should be the solution of algebraic, ge­OlUetric, and arithmetic problems.When compared with results attained inthe schools of Europe, the traditional sys­!em of teaching mathematics in this countryIS wasteful as to time. I t is as serious amistake to consider the organization ofCOUrses for the junior high school withoutrelation to the senior high school as to haveIt dominated by the powerful influence oftradition. The junior high school is an in­termediate school which forms a link be­tWeen the elementary and the high schoolThere is no justification for making thosewho wish to go on with school work takethe traditional courses in algebra and georn­e�ry. re�ardl�ss of what they have learn�d int e JunIOr high school. The problem IS top�an the work preceding the high school sot at those who do not go on derive the larg­est Possible benefit, while those who plan togo to high. school should not have to re­P.eat work previously mastered. The solu­hon of these problems is difficult, but shouldn.ot be impossible. The investigation car­rIed on by the Department leads to a coni­plete reconstruction of the courses in math­,eruati,cs to be offered in the seventh, eighth,and ninth grades.The Chicago Dinner at Cleveland on Wed­nesday, February 28, is an event to look for­Ward. to.

Detweiler(The University of Chicago Press)Last month attention was called on thispage to a significant survey of the Negroproblem in Chicago made under the direc­tion of the Chicago Commission on RaceRelations and published by the Universityof, Chicago Press as The Negro in Chicago.This volume in analyzing the causes of the.serious race riots of 1919 paid considerableattention to the part played in race affairsby the .Negro press. For many years therehave been a number of papers edited by andfor the Negro, but little has been knownabout them by white people. Anyone in­terested may now, however, learn of thegrowing importance of this Negro "fourthestate" by reading «The Negro Press in theUnited States" by Frederick G, Detweiler,which the University of Chicago Press hasrecently published.Mr. Detweiler tells an interesting storyat the same time that he acquaints thereader with the facts of Negro journalism.For the five hundred or more race papersin circulation today he builds up a histori­cal background by an account of early slav­ery days with their first little journals ed­ited by N eg roe s. He traces the history ofthese short-lived bulletins which were thefirst printed expression by the blacks them­selves of the hopes and ideals that stirredwithin the slaves. He quotes from someof these papers and tells the history of themore famous of the Negro writers who pro-duced them. 'The press edited by the free Negro, how­ever, has be-en produced under increasinglybetter conditions as compared with the pre­Civil War papers, and it is with this bodyof periodicals that Mr. Detweiler is mostconcerned. He describes a great many of.the more influential papers, particularlythose which are still a force among theblacks. He tells what seems to interestthem most, what their favorite themes are,wherein they are similar, wherein they aredifferent from the white man's papers. Heanalyzes' the source of their appeal andshows how important an item they havebecome in the direction of race problems.'It is' in this portion of the book that thereader will find the' most to interest him,for here he will discover, just what theNegro is thinking. In the editorials andnews columns he will see reflected the sen­timents arid schemes' of .ambitious, oftenwell-educated men. In the communicationsand letters that come to the papers frorn their readers he will find evidence of thereactions of the uneducated Negroes tothese appeals.A portion of the book is devoted to thedominant atmosphere of conflict, the demandfor rights, which inspires the editors to pub­lish despite great odds. These pages sug­gest the source of the power 'exerted bythe periodicals and analyze the various so­lutions of the race problem which the presshas sponsored. Here are indicated the r'e­lationships that exist between the white andNegro press services and the programs, po­litical, economic, and social, which are ad­vocated by the various periodicals.Mr. Detweiler makes clear, throughout hisbook that he beli-eves that the race papershave an important part to play in the Negroproblem and that, in the words of PresidentHarding, "Publicity is going to be the great­est weapon of all in furthering the causeof the colored people of the United States."He presents the material of his volume be­cause he believes that "the newspaper, re­garded simply as an agency of communica­tion, is a unique social' instrument." Hisinteresting book closes with these two para­graphs on the significance of the press."The press supported by the Negro comesin 'this way to be a means for making hislife significant to himself. The long yearsof slavery resulted in the impression thatthe black mind did not count in the realworld. But now, on the printed page, notonly does a man's name appear before hisfellows, but the whole 'race seems to becomearticulate to mankind."Instead of merely reflecting 'life' thenewspaper, in setting themes for discussionand suggesting the foci of attention, helpspowerfully to create that -Iife. No part ofthe Negro race in America is quite stagnant.It may be that those who are on the fr on­tier s of their world, chiefly in the cities andthe ranks of the educated, are most sensitiveto the new forces and new standards. Butback in quiet rural areas, others are reading-t he ir news and arguments, and the wholemass is responding to the printed sugges­tion. A young Negro is sent to Annapolis;through this press he becomes a symbol forall. The Anti-Lynching Bill passes theHouse, and publicity engraves it in MagnaCarta. Even a street fight, if the racialissue enters in, stiffens the whole line ofconflict and sounds the call to a holy resis­tance. The advertising pages play their partin influencing the standard of living. And,so the press, ephemeral as it is, keeps mov-ing on the main currents of interest, andhelps to bring into being the life that itspages report."THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 67+"--IIH_IUI-H"_IIH_n .. _"M_'UI_Un_IIt._HH_IIH_NII_IIII_IIII_n1I_111I_1U1_IIII_H"_NII_IIII_nn_IfN_IIff_IIN_Nn_IIH_IIN_NU_a+! .

It happened Wed­nesday, November 15, 1922, at the Morri­son Hotel. The meeting was an auspiciousstart for the association's activities for thepresent year.The proposed new constitution for Illinoiswas discussed by Mr. Charles H. Hamill, ofthe law firm of Rosenthal, Hamill & Worm­ser, the guest of honor and speaker, whowas a member of the Constitutional Conven­tion and chairman of two important com­mittees. He reviewed the provisions relat­ing to taxation, Chicago home rule, enlargedpowers of the Supreme Court, and consoli­dation of courts in Cook County, all ofwhich he analyzed and commended as dis­tinct advances. He pointed out the increasedfacility for amendment, saying that if for 110other reason we should adopt the new con­stitution to get the benefit of that, eventhough we should proceed to scrap thewhole document piecemeal to remove suchdefects as we obj-ect to. He gave a we 11-reasoned argument for adoption, and an­swered objections raised by his audience.Besides the speaker, the members presentwere:Roy P. Kelly, H. L. Ellsworth, RichardM. Gudeman, David J.

W. St. John and Henry Taylor, '09, illcharge of ticket distribution, the Monthlyfeels that it can and should explain "insidethe family" that:Delay in finishing the Stadium itself de­layed the making of charts showing the nurI1�bering plan for seats, which in turn held uPthe printing of the tickets themselves.Taylor and his assistants were in fact un­able to issue a single ticket for even thepreliminary' games until less than two weeksbefore the whistle blew.Peculiarly, the tremendous rush forMichigan game tickets was very much .::1"last-minute" dernand-s-near ly 30,000 appliTICKET TROUBLES�ELSEWHEREcations being received within the last two:eeks before the game-a situation whichof Set advance calculations as to the sizeh the crowd and the amount of time andPl·lp +�eeded to handle and fill the ticket ap-ICalIons, day by day.t The working force in the ticket office had01 be d,oubled, then trebled within the periodin h week or two, which resulted naturallyD t. e addition of many untested and inex­effi.rI�nced helpers-with the penalty of in-CIen�y that such help always brings.QoJhe Job of handling applications for 75,­do ,to 8?,OOO seats, 10,000 or more of whichant eXIst, with the further comp lication ofti system of involved and rather elastic op­e�ns, .probably would have swamped even anti�enenced ticket office force with plenty ofthe e to g�t ready.

The student in questionlistened with interes-t, then pulled his ownticket from an inner pocket, looked at itwith satisfaction and remarked as he restoredit to safekeeping:"N 0, I don't think he's got money enoughto get my ticket!"Mr. Ford is by no means alone in histicketless condition.
