XV No.5MARCH, 1923�ENTS&�As recorded elsewhere in this number ofthe Magazine, Dr. Ernest Dewitt BurtonDoctor took office as Acting PresidentBurton of the University on FebruaryTakes Office 20th. President Erne r i t � sHarry Pratt Judson was 111the office of the President in HarperMemorial Library, during the morning ofthat day of his retirement, receiving thetnaJ}Y visitors who came to extend againthelr deep appreciation of his long years ofservice. About noon, the office was formally,or, rather, informally turned over to Dr.B�rton. The ceremony was simple andqUId, yet fraught with general realizationthat a new period of progress in the annalsof the University had begun. Acting Presi­dent Burton is not the type of man whowould relish any elaborate ceremony in con­n�cti.on with his installation into office. QuietdIgnIty, quiet but evident efficiency areprominent characteristics in him. It mightbe mentioned that Dr. Burton has installeda dictaphone in his new office-an indication,perhaps, of his business-like methods in con­�ucting his office work. He has now beenIn the chair about a month, arid already, asseveral department heads' have expressed it,!he "wheels have begun to turn." The "turn­Ing of wheels" clearly indicate, as has al­rheady been stated, that his administration,tough a comparatively brief one, will beOne of very definite activity and advance­lUuel!t in the growth and development of theJ}lversity along various lines. We takethIs occasion to extend again to our newPresident best wishes from all alumni for alUost successful administration and to ex­Press again our hearty willingness to co­operate at all times as he might require. It is the privilege of this number of theMagazine to record the pres-Gift of entation to the University,Manuscripts through the Alumni Fundto University Committee, of some excep-tionally rare and valuahlemedieval manuscripts. Effective participationin this great and timely help to the Univer­sity marks the first expenditure of surplusincome from the Alumni Fund, establishedthree years ago, for some University pur­pose. The Fund itself contributed $1,200,voted for that purpose, on recomm-endationof the Committee, at the January meetingof the Alumni Council; but, in addition, theentire amount required for all the manu­scripts present-ed was raised by the AlumniFund Committee as a special phase of itsactivities on behalf of the University.As a first gift to the University, throughthe Fund, it should be clear that the alumnihave sought to meet in some way one of themost pressing needs of the institution.These manuscripts not only will contributedefinitely toward making. the U niversity­what it should be-a center of original re­search documents, but directly offer unusualopportunities for research work of very im­portant literary, historic, legal and socialvalue. At this time the limited Fund in­come could have contributed to nothingmore helpful for a University purpose.It is always somewhat easier for an edu­cational institution to obtain funds for scien­tific, agricultural, or building purposes(though that is difficult enough) than towin assistance for some such cultural pur­pose-studies in the humanities-as is repre­sented in this gift. Yet, if a university is tomaintain its standard for true university en-165166 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEdeaver, such material is absolutely neces­sary. The enthusiasm with which this giftis being received by the Faculty at Chicago,and particularly the English, Romance,Latin, History and other departments, andill the Law School, sufficiently attests itswelcome and profound appreciation by theFaculty. The occasion of the presentation-the first Convocation presided over byActing President Burton-is obviously amost happy one.Every donor to the Alumni Fund, we are'confident, will appreciate the high "U niver­sity value" of this gift. In due time it cannot but result to some degree in a sounderknowledge of medieval life and thought, aswell as contribute to other fields of learning.It is primarily upon such documents as abasis that true histories are written, trueunderstanding of the peoples, language, lit­erature and customs of the past is obtained,and correct teaching on past centuries andpresent outgrowths is possible. Such raredocuments make speculation and conjecturelargely unnecessary and contribute directlyto accuracy and truth in education. Ac­cording to our University's motto, "throughknowledge life is enriched"; certainly forvarious educational purposes such manu­scripts enable life .to be best enrich-ed.It is to the credit of our alumni that inthis first application of the Fund income �ndgeneral Fund Committee activity, they werenot deflected to, some purpose which whilemore alluring in a "popular" sense,' wouldhave actually contributed far less to somecrying need of the University as a great edu­cational center. This gift firm1v based onail intelligent, enlightened' understanding ofeducational values, amply testifies to thethorough appreciation on the part of ouralumni as to what their University is reallyfor, and indicates dearly that, so far as thealumni are concerned, the University canwell rely on cooperation and assistance thatwill relate to the true and lasting needs ofthe institution. It is gratifying, furthermore,to note that this gift has already openeda venues of future aid to the University ofsimilar progressive nature, Rather thanbeing the end, it really marks the beginningof a serious and worth-while endeavor on thepart of the alumni to continue to contribute.through themselves and through friends ofthe University, to many of the outstandingneeds that would not otherwise be properlymet.A word of praise should be said on behalfof the members of fhe Fund Committee andof the Alumni Council who have labored in­.dustriously and loyally to make this giftpossible at this time. The exceptional op­por turuty to do so presented itself lastFall; it was promptly investigated and stepswere taken at once to obtain such of themanuscripts as seemed most desirable tomembers of the Faculty more directly in­terested. Their advisory cooperation was immediate and hearty. Months of quiet buteffective effort followed, and the neededfunds were raised to purchase the manu­scripts described in 'this number of theMagazine.All alumni can take a just pride in thisgift. It is more than a gift-it is a directcontribution to learning that in various waysand for many years will be an importantfactor in education and culture. It is thetype of gift which, despite the obvious need,is less frequently made to institutions ofhigher 'education, but, we are pleased tonote, there has recently come an awakeningin America to the scholarship and othervalue of such basic material and large andincreasing endeavors are now being madeto acquire manuscripts for a number ofAmerican universities. It is, especially, thetype of gift which fairly represents, andshould represent, such educated recognitionof its need and value as might properly beexpected from university alumni.* * *I t will not be long before the Quadrangleswill be gay and clamorous, with the costumedclasses parading at the annualJune Reunion.

The pro­gram includes the announcement of analumni undertaking to raise $100,000.00 forthe purchase of manuscripts, and the pres­entation of five -of these medieval manu­scripts to the University through the alumniis evidence of the successful beginning ofthe undertaking. On various occasions be­fore this-notably for the erection of theHarper Memorial Library-money has beengiven by individual students or graduates,by classes or other groups, but now for thefirst time, so far as records or the memoryof man show, a gift is to be made in thename of the whole body of the Alumni. Itis not only an occasion for pride and afeeling that we are now indeed, "grown up,"but also for realization that some day re­sponsibilities may come to an adult AlumniAsso cia tion.The present gift is in the form of fivemanuscripts dating from the eleventh, thir­teenth, and. fourteenth centuries. Compet­ent author ities have pronounced themhighly desirable research material quiteaside from any antiquarian interest whichthey might arouse. Knowledge which schol­ars in various depar trnents can draw fromthese manuscripts will shed new light on thehistory of science and of the common andcivil law, and on the art, language" religion,philosophy, and social life of the MiddleAges.The history of this presentation goesback to last fall when the attention of agroup of alumni was called to the fact that,owing to conditions in Europe since theGreat War, a number of important" manu­scripts are now on the market which itwould have been impossible to procure atany price ten years ago, and which in afew years may again be out of the reachof the American buyer. About two yearsago the University gave the Alumni Coun­cil a list of things it needed, but for whichit had no available funds; since manuscriptsfor research were on this list it seemed tothe Fund Committee that some investiga­tion of the need, and of the possibilities ofmeeting it at this time, should be made.Inquiry along these lines brought a letterfrom Mr. Manly which, omitting referencesto specific manuscripts, read as follows: THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGODepartment of EnglishDecember 11, 1922.Mr. Frank McNair, •Chairman, Alumni Fund Committee.Dear Mr. McNair:I t has given us very great pleasure andencouragement to hear that your committeethinks it possible to interest the former stu­den ts and other friends of the Universityin the purchase of manuscripts for the V ni­versity. This information reached me onTuesday of last week, and I presented itto the Philological Society at its regularmeeting on Wednesday evening. The newswas received with enthusiasm and a com­mittee was appointed to ascertain the inter­ests and plans of members of the Facultywith regard to manuscripts for researchwork. * * *Hitherto we have looked at manu­scripts as poor children gaze withwistful but hopeless eyes at the richgifts displayed in shop windows for thewealthy. Again and again we have seenoffered for sale manuscripts or rare booksthat gave rise to long, long thoughts anddesires, but we have come to believe thatanything costing more than five or ten dol­lars a volume was out of the reach of theUniversity Library, and we have restrictedour thoughts to the attainable and tried tobuild' up-as in fact we are succeeding indoing-a good working library by carefulwatching for cheap but good copies of books.But the great book men like Voynich, Quar­itch, Maggs, Sotheran, and the rest, fre­quently have manuscripts that would be ofthe very highest value for research. Andif we may believe that such manuscriptsare not entirely out of the question for theUniversity of Chicago, we shall be encour­aged to search with care for those whosepossession and publication will reflect honorupon the University and prove to its alumniand other friends-what experts in everyfield of learning both in America and inEurope already know-that the Universityis one of the recognized leaders of researchin the world.I am sure that our friends here in Chicagodo not realize the true position of the U ni­versity in the matters of research or theunequaled opportunity we have for makingthis the leading research institution of thecountry, and I could easily write a smallbook 011 the subject; but this is not thetime or the place for such a disquisition. IRARE MANUSCRIPTS PRESENTED BY ALUMNIwill only say that nothing has ever hap-.pened to give so much encouragement tothose of us who are interested in human­istic studies as the intimation of this inter­est on the part of our Alumni.I am, Sir,Sincerely and gratefully yours,John M. Manly.Late in December, after careful consid­eration of all the information acquired, theFund Committee voted to' recommend tothe Council that the surplus income of theFund to date-$1,200.00-be devoted to thePurchase of such manuscripts as were withinOur means and considered good researchmaterial by members of the faculty. Thisrecommendation was approved by the Coun­cil at its January meeting. In the mean­time it became evident that the sum whichcould be assigned from the income of theFund would not be sufficient to secure someof the manuscripts most wanted, and at thesame time the feeling' grew that this firstgift to the University should be a worthyone. The Committee therefore, with theactive aid of several other interested alumni,set out to obtain additional donations .eitherfrom alumni or friends of the University.Although the time was so short that only a,limited number of people could be reached,further gifts were secured which, with theamount already granted, made possible thePurchase of the five manuscripts now pre­sented whose value, collectively, is aboutseventy-five hundred dollars.The most remarkable of these manuscriptsboth in form and content is the Authenticumor N ovellae C onstitutiones of Justinian copiedby a scribe of Bologna about the middle ofthe thirteenth century. Its description and thecomparison with other extant copies of theN ouellae can best be given by excerpts from aletter by John M, Zane, a lawyer, whoseavocation is the study of medieval legalmanuscripts:"The presence, of this manuscript in theUnited States seems to be an extraordinaryevent. So far as I know, and I think that Iam informed, this is the first manuscript ofany part of the Justinian Corpus Juris thathas ever found its way to this country, It is110 less extraordinary that it should be forsale. A few years ago it would have beendoubted that such a manuscript would everbe on the market. All that exist are in greatcollections' but there is no reason to doubtthe authencity of this work as what it claimsto be. The internal evidence proves it."Some reference to historical facts oughtfirst to be made in describing this manuscriptWork. When the Emperor Justinian con­fided to Tribonian and his assistants theWork of collecting, codifying and digestingthe Roman law, he first caused to be com­Piled a revision of the laws of former em­Perors, which revision was called the Code. 169Next he caused the great mass of Romanlegal writings to be excerpted and this col:­lection was called the Digest or Pandects.To these was added the Institutes, whichwas a general statement of the principlesof Roman law. Having thus reduced thevast bulk of the legal writing and laws tothe Institutes, the Digest, and the Code, itwas found that additional laws were neces­sary to amend the law or to establish a rulefor cases unprovided for. The laws for thispurpose were enacted and collected as theNovels or N ovellae Constitutiones or 11'eWla ws o'f Justinian."It is needless to say that these laws pro­mulgated at Constantinople were in Greek,the Court language of the Empire. But J us­tinian's generals had reclaimed the Latinprovinces of Italy and Africa, and a trans­lation of these laws into Latin was issuedto the Latin provinces. This was called theAuthenticum, and this manuscript is theLatin text of the Authenticum."In course of time the original copiesperished, but copies persisted until. the re­vival of the study of Roman law 111 Italy,especially at the University of Bolognaabout 1000 A.D. There, the law teachers,who were also jurists and sometimes judges,made comments upon the texts of theRoman law. The custom was to write theglosses or comments 011 the margins of themanuscript pages. Soon it came to be ac­cepted that what was not in the gloss wasnot in the law. The greatest of these Glos­sators, Accursius, collected the glosses intowhat is called the Great Gloss written in1220."The glosses show this manuscript to bepost-Accursian, internal evidence shows itto be before 1300, and it seems highly prob­able that it' should be dated 1250 or before.The best known Justinian manuscripts ofthe twelfth to fourteenth centuries, pre­served in the libraries of the great capitalsof Europe, are none of them so sumptuousas this. The Vienna manuscript, the firstin point of view of comprehensiveness, can­not approach this for beauty and fine work­manship. Comparison with other legal textsshows that this one was not prepared for amere jurist, but with its rich illuminations,was intended for some great prince, pre­sumably Frederick II, last of the Hohen­staufen Emperors. Fr ederick, with his schol­astic interests and princely tastes, and be­cause of his own position as a giver of newfundamental laws, was just the man toha ve ordered a manuscript of this charac­ter. In the disorders of the half-centurythat followed his death it is improbable thatanvone would have had time or interest forsuch things. Unfortunately the initial coatof arms originally painted upon a hammeredsheet of gold is so worn it cannot be deci­phered, but it is significant that the smallershields scattered through the manuscriptare made-up ones unknown to heraldry-aswould be the case in a royal copy. Naturally170 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe bearings of lesser nobles could not beincluded in a manuscript for the use of theEmperor.The second manuscript is the Liber de. novemscienciis and Sermones Cistercienses which Mr.Manly described as follows at the time thatits purchase was under discussion: "AnotherMS of much value for the study of mediaevallife and thought-a small vellum MS con­taining a thirteenth century treatise on theNine Sciences (usually the Middle Ages r e­garded seven as exhausting the subject)and a fourteenth century series of sermonsketches. Both seem to have been writtenat the Benedictine Abbey of Melsa in northEngland. The interest of the former liesin the fact that it presents the monastic. view of science at a time when learning wasbeing transformed at the universities by ascientific movement singularly similar inaims and methods to that of modern times,and while not comparable with that in ab­solute results, probably equally remarkablefor its advance over what preceded it. Thistreatise contains several astronomical dia­grams-that explaining the eclipse of themoon showing clearly· that at this date notonly advanced thinkers like Roger Bacontaught the roundness. of the earth, but eventhe monks accepted and taught it. Thesecond part of the MS is interesting largelybecause of the popular tales, folk customsand folk superstitions it contains or al­ludes to. If this volume should be pur­chased, Professor T. P. Cross, whose comp­etence in the field of folk-lore is universallyrecognized, would undertake the study ofthe second part, and I should be glad tocompare the monastic view of science pre­sented in the first MS with the new learn­ing. in the universities at that date." -The M iracula S anctae V irginis and othersis the title of the third manuscript. This isthe oldest of the group, having been writtenand decorated in England about 1075. It iswell written, thoug-h the writing is in sev­eral hands. On the first page there is aremarkably small painting of the Virginand Child -under a canopy. This is in fivecolors and is not only beautiful but, beingof such an early date, is also of importancefor the history of English painting-itshows a curious blending of Irish and By­zantine art and possesses a great deal ofexpression. Some of these legends can betraced back to Latin origins, and many ofthem are not at all religious, according tothe modern use of that word, even thoughthe Virgin or some saint may appear in. thecourse of the story. The text of this copyof -the "Miracula" contains many variantsfrom other versions of these tales, and threeof the legends have never been published inany form. .The fourth manuscript, the Registrum Bre­vium, is from the reign of Edward II, prob­ably about 1320. Under. the English systemof remedial justice each law suit was begun by suing out a writ., New writs had to bedevised to meet new cases, and as the writsaccumulated they were added to the Regis­ter. Each practicing lawyer needed a copyof the Register for it was like a presentbook of form, only more important. Thisparticular manuscript evidently once be­longed to a lawyer and was in daily use,those parts dealing with ordinary writs werewell-thumbed while writs less often usedare on dean pages: It is almost unique asto its date, and as to the interspersing ofpractical lawyer's notes. Because of its datethis .Reg ister is of particular value to thestudent for locating the growth of a num­ber of different doctrines in the 'early com­mon law, while Fitzherbert's Register, of a-couple of centuries later, (which has beel1printed) lacks this historic value as he showsthe Register only in the form that it existedin his time.The fifth manuscript-the Magna Chartaand Statutes-is written on vellum and datesfrom the first half of the fourteenth cen­tury. It was, apparently intended _ to becarried about as a reference volume as it isan unusually small manuscript of the prin­cipal statutes. It corresponds roughly withthe earliest printed editions, but there aresome interesting variations in the texts.The alumni may well feel that by thepresentation of these manuscripts they havegiven to the scholars of six or eight depart­ments materials which are as necessary tothem for carrying on research in their re­spective fields as is the extensive laboratoryequipment used by those interested in scien­tific investigation.THE MANUSCRIPT CAMPAIGNA $5,000 OFFERThe Alumni Manuscript campaign islaunched at this March Convocation withthe presentation to the University o·f the fivemanuscripts just described, given partly byAlumni and partly by other friends.

A statement on the new rulings soon to goin effect appears in the University Notes of this num­ber of the Magazine. As a result of the announce­ment, much erroneous "reporting" on this matterappeared in the Chicago daily papers. It is, there­fore, advisable that the public, and our alumni par­ticularly, obtain a correct statement and interpretationof the purpose and the changes contemplated, as tothe College and other work done at the University, atfirst hand. In response to a request from the editor,Acting President Burton has gladly submitted thearticle on this matter published herewith.)* * * * *The University of Chicago is no longera young institution. Practically a genera­tion has passed since, as the result of asuccessful effort to raise what seemed thenthe stupendous sum of three million dol­lars, and under the guiding genius of Presi­dent Harper, it opened its doors with theCollege, the Graduate School of Arts andLiterature, the Ogden Graduate School ofScience, and the Divinity School, with afaculty of one hundred and forty, and astudent body of six hu'udred. Of the orig­inal twenty-one trustees four are still onthe Board, of the original faculty twenty­five are still on the teaching staff, whileof the original body of students thirteenare now on the faculty, and of the rest,those that have survived are widely scat­tered.Each of the two presidencies that havefilled the nearly thirty-one years that havepassed since the University opened its doorsin October, 1892, has been marked by greatachievements, and as the result the Univer­sity is richly endowed and equipped, has alarge and able teaching staff and a largeand on the whole a serious-minded body ofstudents:But to us who are at the University andon whom there rests the responsibility forthe shaping of its policies, trustees and,faculty alike, the achievements of the pastseem to constitute not a record to be con­tented with, but, an imperative call to fur­ther progress which will make the future aworthy sequel to the past. We have the conviction that the time is ripe for' markedadvance in several directions.Just now three things are claiming spe­cial attention in the Graduate Schools, thedevelopment of research; in the MedicalSchool, the carrying into effect of the plansmade several years ago; and in the college,progress and improvement in several re­spects. .There is a general eagerness to be upand doing, not simply to hold our ownand make the kind of progress which willappear in increased numbers of students,but to improve the quality and to raisethe level of our work. Especially is therea general feeling that we can, and becausewe can, we ought to, do something moreuseful than simply to duplicate the work ofother Western Universities, that there is aplace for us to fill and a work to do whichis peculiarly ours and for which we there­fore have a special respons ib il ity,Precisely what that place and work areis a question which is being earnestly dis­cussed in all our faculties. To answer itnow would be premature, prejudging a case,which still requires much study and dis­cussion. Yet some of the elements of theproblein are already coming into the lightand may be at least tentatively stated now.It' seems clear, for example, and it isgenerally agreed, that marked progressought to be made. in the next few yearsin respect to the first of the three thingsnamed above, the spirit and practice of' re­search. In his autobiography, ProfessorMichael Pupin of Columbia speaks of thegreat impulse which was given to the spiritof research by a series of lectures deliveredin this country by Professor Tyndall in1872, and of the marked influence exertedin the same direction by the founding ofJohns Hopkins University in 1876. Are wenot justified in mentioning in this sameseries of events, the founding of our ownUniversity in 189i? Our record since thatday is an honorable one and our list ofaccomplishments a long one. Yet there istoday a wide-spread feeling in our faculty,shared also by the trustees, that the time isat hand for a fresh emphasis on research,and new recognition' of our responsibilityto make this the outstanding characteristicof the University's life, We believe that172 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthis. should . be the. case not only in Physics,Chemistry, and the biological sciences, butin. every field of knowledge in which theUniversity undertakes to work.It is not less clear that the time hascome for carrying into effect the plans madesome years ago for the development of aMedical Scho-ol at the University, with afull four years course, and a strong faculty.Whatever or however imperative the causesthat have necessitated delay in putting intoeffect the proposals of 1916, for which overfive million dollars Were raised in 1917,whatever the difficulties in the way 'Of real­izing them now, Trustees and Faculty areunited in believing that those difficultiesmust be overcome and a University School'of the Science of Medicine be developedwIth the least possible delay. In this de­velopment the emphasis will not be uponnumbers-it is probable that these will haveto be strictly limited-but on the scientificcharacter of the work done. The profes­sors will give their full time to the school,and the aim will be to develop the scienceof medicine and to produce men who,whether they become teachers, men of re-search, or even practitioners, will be repre­sentatives of an advancing science of medi­cine.Parallel with this development of a Schoolof the Science of Medicine at the Universityit is proposed to build up at Rush MedicalCollege 'On the West Side a UniversitySchool for graduates in Medicine under thename of Rush Post-Graduate School ofMedicine of the University of Chicago.This school will aim especially at enablingphysicians already in practice to fit them­selves for greater efficiency, especially bypursuing advanced courses or engaging ill'research. Such a school will meet a greatneed already existing and felt.In the third phase of the University'swork referred to above there is a keen in­terest, and a general belief that we ought todiscover a higher type of life and work forthe colleges than has yet been developed inAmerica. This is a matter in which PresidentHarper in his day and Dean Angell andPresident Judson later were deeply inter­ested and to which they gave much thought.It is the belief of many of the facultythat the studies already made and othersthat still remain to be made ought to leadus little by little-we do not look for sud­den changes-to a type of college life betterfitted to make intelligent, capable and highminded citizens; better adapted to our situ­ation in a great city with a population ex­ceeding that of several of the states ofthe union, and in the center of a countrywhose responsibilities are vastly greaterthan they were a few years ago; better ableto. send forward to the graduate schoolstudents prepared for that further trainingwhich will make them competent, original,investigative, and able teachers. And because this seems to us a possibility, we judge italso an imperative duty to· undertake it.The precise direction in which changes willtake place, it is too early to state. Butit may be confidently predicted that the at­tempt will not be to produce anaemic in­tellectual prodigies, or unsocial individual­istic storehouses of knowledge, but menand women who, being physically strong,socially cultured, intellectually equipped andtrained, morally courageous and broad hori­zoned, will be able to play their part andgive a good account 'Of themselves in atwentieth century wor.ld, whether in thefield of pure scholarship, in the professions,in business, or in political life.Meantime it is hoped that the Alumniwill have sufficient confidence in the Trus­tees and the Faculty, to discount heavilysensational reports that the University isabout to put into effect radical changes anddestructive policies. We are in a largecity, the papers of which naturally preferto employ with spectacular effect whateverrumors or hints come to them. We doindeed wish greatly to develop and to im­prove all parts of our work. Weare moreconcerned for quality than for numbers­more interested in education than in amuse­ment. But we recognize that many ele­ments contribute to make an educated man'Or woman, and we are endeavoring not todestroy any element of college life thatcontributes to a high type of manhood orwomanhood but to develop each in its duepropor tion,These are but a few, but some of themost important of the things that we havein mind as belonging to the task of theUniversity in the near future. I mightspeak of the development of the Libraries,and of our professional schools of Theology,Law, and Medicine, of new buildings, someurgently needed at once, others that willbe demanded by the development of oureducational plans. What I have said isperhaps sufficient to indicate that we haveno thought 'Of marking time, but that thereis a keen d-esire to push forward, and onthe broad and sound foundations laid byPresident Harper and President Judson, tobuild as rapidly as possible, consistentlywith wise building, the super-structure forwhich they have s-o 'well prepared.I t is obvious as scarcely to need statingthat the plans will call for· large additionsto' the capital resources of the University.About this phase of the matter the alumnimay expect to hear more later. The Uni­versity now has a large body of graduatesand former students, who believe in theUniversity and who want to see it claim andhold its place - of responsibility in the edu­cational field, and who will, we are confident,be glad to give their help to the effortthat must s-oon be made to provide thefunds for a marked advance in the directionsof the ideals that we cherish.CHICAGO DEANS 173t- .. -.I-I.- •• -I.- •. -UU-""-" .. -"II-II-IIII-IIII-IIII-OI'-IIII- ..

When HenryGale, Edith Foster andothers entered the U ni­ver sity as prospectivestudents, in the openingdays, the man who exam­ined them for admissionwas Frank Justus Miller-since 1911 a Dean inthe College of Arts andLiterature.Frank Justus Millerwas born at Clinton,Tennessee, November 26,1858. the son of a min­ister. He prepared forcollege at Denison Acad­emy, and entered DenisonUniversity, G ran ville,Ohio, from which institu­tion he was graduated,A.B., in 1879. For theyear following he wasProfessor of Latin inClinton College, Ken­tucky. The next year,1882, he obtained his A.M. degree at Denison.During the next tenyears he taught atPlainfield, N. J., HighSchool and Worcester Academy, Massa­chusetts, and studied at Yale University.He obtained his Ph.D. at Yale in 1892. Healso studied abroad at the universities ofHalle, M unchen, and J ena.Dr. Miller joined the company of notableeducators who came to the University ofChicago when it first opened in October,1892, "under the bedlamic confusion," as heputs it, "of the World's Fair preparationsand the noise of workmen in the not yetcompleted Cobb Hal1." His first connec­tion with the University was as InstructorIn Latin and Assistant Examiner. Manyof the older alumni, who during this "hecticperiod" tried to establish the sufficiency andproficiency of their mental equipment toentitle them to become students in the newinstitution, will recall his ever-courteousand helpful services at that time. In 1896,as President Harper's plans of affiliationsdeveloped, in which development Dr. Millerclosely participated, he became Examinerof Affiliations and later Dean of Affilia­t.ons. For many years he had the admin­istration of the annual conference of theUniversity with the affiliating and cooper- ating schools, a work which has done muchto bring the University into proper and helpfulcontact with many institutions and studentsthroughout the country.During ·this p e rio d,D e a n Miller continuedhis teaching of Latin atChicago, steadily risingf rom instruction, in 189�?,to Professor of Latin in1909. Since 1908 he hasbeen managing editor ofthe Classical Journal. Heis Vice-President of theAmerican C I ass i calLeague and on the Ad­visory Com mit tee onClassical Survey. Amonghis pub I i cat ion s aretextbooks in Ovid, andV erg i I, translations ofSeneca and Ovid, DraIH­atizations from Verqil,Studies in Roman Poetry,and numerous articles onc I ass i c a I subj ects. Heis a member of Phi BetaKappa. In 1909 the hon­orary degree of LL.D. wasconferred upon him by hisalma mater, Denison Uni­versity. Dean Miller is amember of the Quadrangleand University clubs. During the war he waschairman of the Committee on Private Schoolsand Colleges in Chicago for Liberty Loandrives; he was awarded a medal for distin­guished service in this work.On July 10, 188,1, he married Lida Wil­let, of Bloomfield, N.

In all these he has alwaysbrought to bear sound, mature, progressivejudgment, and he has been a very potentand valued influence in the many adminis­trative and policy decisions of the Univer­fortunate, indeed, in havin c his high, COl1-sity since its founding.

Surely any loyal alumnus who canafford the price of a football ticket for oneafternoon's enjoyment, can also afford twodollars for a year of Chicago news, Thisadded two dollars from several hundredpeople would be a big help in fttrtheringsome worthy alumni project, and wouldwiden the scope and increase the alumnispirit through the Magazine.I believe that many alumni do not belongto the Association merely because of pro­crastination' and ignorance of the good theywould derive. By sending applications formembership in the Alumni Association,with football applications, they would re­ceive just the jolt and stimulus needed tobring. them into the fold.Sincerely yours,Mrs. Gracia Webster Bartram.

So far as I know, you never wroteme a letter telling me that you were throw-.ing me out Now, this is the second timeyou have cut' me off under some such cir­cumstances. I think you have the wrongsystem.This Magazine of ours is a family affair.No one ought to be removed from' the, listof subscribers until after he has had a yearof the Magazine free-then if he doesn't payfor that year and the next one, "kick himout." I think your present system makesit rather hard work to get the Magazine.Send me a bill.Very truly yours,George Wiley Sherburn, Ph.D., '15.Chicago, Illinois.(Editor's Note: The above very interesting letter,quite similar to others in the same point that we havereceived, raises a question in which all of our annualsubscribers are, no doubt interested.

It was one of the first English playsproduced in America in the 18th century,and for over one hundred years was fr e­quently revived both in England and Amer­ica. It is notable for its clever scenes, spark­ling wit, and sprightly Restoration spirit.Mrs. Phoebe Bell Terry, '0.8, as Mrs. Sul­len, and Mrs. Phyllis Fay Horton, '15, asDorinda, played these tW0 leading women's parts excellently.

Last year, how­ever, there was a tremendous increase in in­terest in football all over the country, bothamong the general public and the alumni,with the result that nearly all universitiesWere obliged to make new rules regardingfootball ticket allotments.After investigation we find that the com­mittee in charge at Chicago was working��der a plan adopted by the Board of Phys­real Culture and Athletics, which plan wasfounded on a careful study of the subjectmade by that board. The plan was a newOUe and its execution involved a tremendousamo�nt of' detail and, in OUr opinion, thecommittee, under the circumstances, did avery creditable piece of work· and deservescommendation. When there are not enoughseats to fill all applications there is sure tobe dissatisfaction and complaint both fromthe alumni and the public. We find that theplan followed rests on a sound and equit­able basis, although naturally in the first ex­ecution of an undertaking of this kind andsize there were some mistakes and in ouropinion some changes in the plan are ad­visable.We believe that the general principleWhich must be followed is that of givingpriority to the students and alumni and oth­ers directly connected with the Universityand then accommodating just as many aspossible of the public who are interested.This requires the use of some predeterminedorder of priorities, and that is the problemto be met here just as it is and has beenIn other universities where the demand fortickets sometimes exceeds the supply.Wrn..

Payne,University Recorded and Examiner. The newcode which will take effect beginning thespring quarter consists of two drastic meas­ures: first, to be eligible for initiation intoa club or fraternity, the student must havethree and one-half majors of resident workand seven' grade points; second,. a studentwill be placed on probation if at any timehis work falls below a C average.In regard to initiation into secret socie­ties, the new regulations specify that thestudent must pass three majors with a C average, and further must receive credit forone-half major in Physical, Culture. Theadditional grade point requited to make upthe total of seven may be given for a Cgrade in gymnasium work, or (if the studentfalls below c: in gym, yet still receives hishalf-major credit) from a surplus above therequirement ii1 his academic work.The adoption of the one grade point pro­bation rule, seen as a further step in thepolicy of eliminating the incapable or indo­lent student, provides that if anyone fallsone point below the C average, his nameis immediately placed upon the probationlist. In accordance with the old rule, if hedoes not bring his average up to the requiredC within three quarters, he is eligible fordismissal.The former regulations, which are super­seded by this new legislation, were consid­erably more lenient. Undergraduates wereeligible for fraternity or club initiation !fthey had three and one-half majors of creditwith six grade points, one of which might bederived from Physical Culture. The recentfaculty ordinance requires a strict conform­ity to the C standard in academic courses-The ruling that a one grade point de­ficiency subjects the student to probationreplaces the regulation that if a student'Srecord at the close of any quarter is five (ormore) grade points below the normal mini­mum of two per major taken, he is placedon probation.Record of Undergraduate Fraternities,Autumn Quarter, 1922Fraternity RankTau Kappa EpsiIol1 1Zeta Beta Tau :2Delta Chi ". . 3Chi Psi................... 4Acacia 5Alpha Phi Alpha. . . . . . . . . . 6Alpha Sigma Phi 7Beta Theta Pi 8Alpha Delta Phi........... 9Psi Upsilon 10Kappa Nu 11Delta Kappa Epsilon .;... 12Lambda Chi Alpha 13Phi Beta Delta 14Phi Kappa Psi ,'. 15Kappa Sigma 16Kappa Alpha Psi 17Delta Sigma Phi 18Pi Lambda Phi..... . . . . .. 19Alpha Tau Omega 20Phi Sigma Delta 21Delta Upsilon 22Sigma Alpha Epsilon 23Phi Kappa Sigma 24Phi Gamma Delta 25Sigma Chi 26Delta Tau Delta ,..... 27Sigma Nu 28Phi Delta Theta 29TEtu Delta Phi 30 GradeB"-,,C C+)C (+)C .»C (+)C (+)C (+)CCCCCCCCCCC-(+)C-(+)C-(+)C-(+)C-(+)C-(+)C-':C+ )C_:_-( +)C-(+)C-C!�C-C_rl,c-« .c-UNIVERSITY NOTES-MISS REYNOLDS RETIRES 183Miss Myra Reynolds, Ph.D., '95Miss Myra Reynolds RetiresMiss Myra Reynolds, Ph.D., '95, head ofFoster hall since its erection twenty-eightYears ago and professor in the English de­Partment, has announced her resignation, totake place at the end of the winter quarter.lIer successor as head of Foster and profes­SOr of English has not yet been appointed.Prominent in Campus Life.

Miss Reynolds plans to spend thewinters 'in California, the spring and fall ather cottage in Lakeside, Michigan, and hersummers at the Edgewood School in Green­wich, Conn. She will hold' no official po­sition at the latter school, however, as shedoes not expect to teach again.Likes Modern Women"I like the modern woman very much,"said Miss Reynolds when questioned abouther ,experierices in handling the students in,her dormitory. "Every period of freedomis characterized by aggressiveness and evenin the last year I have noticed a decidedchange for more balanced, more rationaljudgment on the part of the young womenwith whom I' have come into contact."Many alumnae and alumni recall withdeep appreciation her long and high serv­ices to the University and to her students.Events and Comment(Continued from page 166)borne in mind that the Sing is one of ourfirmly established reunion traditions, inwhatever changes may be made. ,}fo'wever,if you have any suggestions to offer aboutaltering its place or method of holding, orits program, we shall be glad to hear fromyou:184 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE+"--.;1111-1111-1111_11"_1111_11"_""_11"_""_""_11._""....;;."._""_"0_""_""_III'_""_II .. _ ..

In return for this arrangement,every member of the school is automaticallya member of the club and the CommerceClub Council becomes in effect the studentcouncil of the school. Plans are now underway for drafting a new constitution and ageneral reorganization of the club in accordwith the new spirit of cooperation.These funds are expended by the councilin furthering intellectual activities. For ex­ample, the council secures lecturers from thebusiness world for the various divisions ofthe club (marketing, labor, accounting, pro­duction, etc.), and these lectures. are carriedon in cooperation with formal. class activi­ties in the subjects concerned.The formation of the Commerce ClubCouncil offered another opening throughwhich to work. At a meeting of the facultyof the School of Commerce and Administra­tion the entire question was dicussed. Thefaculty felt that it would be helpful to havea channel of communication to the studentbody concerning the problems which con­front the faculty. They knew of no betterway of having the students become awareof the character of those problems than tohear them discussed. It was voted to inviteMr. Harold Noyes, the president of theCommerce Club Council, and two othermembers of the council to sit with thefaculty in their meetings. Mr. Noyes, withMiss Marie Butler and Mr. Bertram Hind­marsh, the representatives whom he ap­pointed, now sit in the faculty meetings ofthe School of Commerce and Administration.The University Journal of Business, the newbusiness magazine, edited by the students inthe School of Commerce and Administra­tion of the University of Chicago. in co-oper­ation with the students of the schools ofbusiness of the Universities of Nebraska,Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois,is .proving another means by which "studentactivities" and "faculty activities" are beingbrought into closer sontact. Here "studentauthor" meets "faculty author" on an equalbasis. All of this is only the beginning of a planto break down that barrier which makes"faculty affairs" 'seem so far-distant and SOalien to "student affairs."Lectures on the Packing IndustryA series of eight lectures on variousaspects of the Packing Industry are beinggiven in Mandel Hall according to the fol­lowing schedule under the joint auspices ofthe School of Commerce and Administrationand the Institute of American Meat Packers.February 13.

Only a few yearsago the first professor' of nutrition in amedical school was appointed at the Uni­yersity of Iowa. The holder of the chairIS a home economics woman with her doc­torate in physiological chemistry. Herduties are to teach nutrition to the medicalstudents and the pupil nurses, to serve assupervisory dietitian in the hospitals, andto carryon investigations in the dietarytreatment of diseases of metabolism. Herappointment, with these varied duties, is arecognition of the need of a close relationbetween scientific nutrition research and theactual dietetic treatment of patients.Another significant educational develop­ment is the opening this year at the U ni­yersity of Cincinnati of a five-year courseIt: nutrition-one of several lines of profes­SI�)11al training for women which that in­stItution is developing. In accordance withthe .general policy followed in all the pro­fessIOnal courses, the nutrition students areto spend part of their time as undergradu­ates serving apprenticeships in the lunch!"ooms of the University, as pupil dietitiansIn hospitals, as nutition specialists in child(,elfare clinics, and as analysts in hospitalaboratories.Indvidual courses in nutrrtion are givenat �any colleges and universities, usually asan l11tegral and important part of the homeeconomic department, sometimes in the de­Partment of chemistry or physiology. Atthe Johns Hopkins University the Doctor'sdegree in biochemistry usually emphasizesnutrition, the department in which the majorBork is done being part of the School of?giene and Public Health. The Universityo Chicago awarded its first doctorate in�ome Economics: Nutrition last September.esearch in nutrition is carried on in thefrea� Nutrition Laboratory of the CarnegienstItution in Boston, by various govern­tnent bureaus, and in many universities.The subject-matter of nutrition coursesvaries considerably as might be expected in�. new· subject taught under diverse condi­IO.ns.� On the more theoretical side it is�ihlefl.y biochemical with emphasis. on dig�s­t On and metabolism and the relation of diete normal and pathological cases. A much-{sed book on the subj ect is the famous "In­rOduction to the Science of Nutrition" firstPublished by Graham Lusk of the Cornell Medical School in 1906. In the more defi­nitely applied phases nutrition includes die­tary surveys to learn what individuals andgroups of people are actually eating, thedetermination of adequate diets by means ofanimal feeding experiments and observationson human beings, and the application ofthese findings to the feeding of human be­ings. In these and its other aspects nutri­tion is closely related to the health of boththe individual and social groups. The appli­cation of the science of nutrition in its lastanalysis is a question of wise selection ofdiet for health and is distinctly the func­tion of healthful family management. Toquote from McCollum, whose researches andteaching have done much to develop the sub­ject, "The science of nutrition gives promiseof making possible the realization of theoptimal condition of physical well-being,with all that this implies for the mentalachievement."The Home Economics Department of theUniversity of Chicago in its elementary nu­trition work seeks to give its students agood working knowledge of food composi­tion; a fairly definite idea of an adequatediet for adult or child and its selection atdifferent individual or family cost levels; andparticularly the relation between wise dietand good health. Beyond this point the'work is based on organic chemistry andphysiology and includes more laboratorywork on food and urine analysis, basalmetabolism, animal feeding experiments; andmore work on child diet. Special attentionhas been given' to the technique of teachingunderweight children as a general' schoolproblem. 'Opportunities for research in nutrition areunlimited in both the more theoretical andthe more practical phases of the subject.Particularly interesting are problems of thebasal metabolism, or the basic energy pro­duction of individuals when' 'lying quietlyresting and without food, arid the relation orthis energy production to their food con­sumption. For example, a group of abouttwenty underweight women students whowere observed last year in some detailshowed on the average a normal basal meta­bolism. It could, therefore, be concludedthat their thinness was not due to an ex­cessive basal energy need. On the. "other.hand, their actual food consumptiorc--ob­served by weighing all they ate for two days,was distinctly low. Eleven of them ate less186 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthan 500 calories above their basal metabol­ism, hardly a sufficient increment to supplythe energy for their many activities. One,on the two days observed, ate even less thanher basal, and two, whose current loss inweight was especially marked, only 137 and210 calories above. Thus the insufficientdiet furnishes at least a partial explanationof the thinness of these girls.This work with a group of underweightstudents was a first step made possiblethrough the practical cooperation of themedical examiner for women, who appre­ciates the service that nutrition can render.She now advises the women who are un­derweight and below par to take the ele­mentary course in nutrition and dietariesand to apply the information to themselvesand to work for their own improvement.She has also arranged for a graduate studentin nutrition to serve as special diet adviserto the whole group of underweight women,and another as adviser to a group of over­weights.Of less immediately practical nature hasbeen a series of 216 observations of thebasal metabolism of a· group of normalwomen, the number of days' observations oneach ranging from 5 to 29. These resultshave added to the rather limited amount ofdata on normal women and also specificallyshowed that there is no regular periodicvariation in metabolism of women from dayto day or month to month.The proximity of the University Ele­mentary School makes possible a very sat­isfactory kind of cooperation for nutritionwork with children. Accurate and detailedinformation has been secured as to the dietof the children, especially in some of theproblem cases, and where it is needed adviceleading toward improvement has been given.-Similar but more detailed work has beendone a number of times with special groupsof underweight children from outside theUniversity in connection with demonstra­tion. classes for the training of students inmethods of nutrition work with children.With all .these groups of children nurner­ous observations have been made on basalmetabolism. Many of the nervous, under­weight children have shown a distinctly highmetabolism, higher than the averages de­termined by Benedict and his co-workers inthe Nutrition Laboratory in Boston. Inother words, these nervous, thin childrenwith their poor appetites really have a higherbasal energy production and, therefore, ahigher food need than the normal child.Members of the Department have had theopportunity to participate in two investiga­tions conducted by the U. S. Children's Bu­reau-a nutrition survey of the children ina rural Kentucky neighborhood, and theinvestigation of pre-school children in Gary,Indiana. The dietary study in the latter in- vestigation brought out most striking corre­lations between the diet and the health ofthe children. With hardly an exception thechildren on . the "bread and coffee" dietswere among those with exceedingly poorteeth.. and most of those with a good diethad good teeth.By no means the least important part ofthe practical nutrition work has been thesupply of wholesome, attractive food to thestudents at the University cafeterias anddormitories. The furnishing of a varied andinexpensive diet with plenty of the neces­sary vegetables and fruits and milk so at­tractively .pr epar ed that they will be chosenfrom the counter by people who follow onlythe dictates of their likes and dislikes, isthe contribution to the nutrition of the uni­versity community of the institution eco­nomics section of the Department.Another kind of nutrition problem, theimmediate application of which to diet andhealth is not always obvious, is the chemicalchanges involved in cooking. For instance,in heating milk it has been found that someof the calcium and phosphorus is precipi­tated, but that the length of time the milkstands after heating is more significant inincreasing the loss than the method ofcooking. On twenty-four hours of standingafter heating the calcium loss may go upto twenty-two per cent of the original quan­tity and the phosphorus loss to seventeenper cent-very significant amounts in a foodwhich is usually the chief source of theseelements in the diet.The woman trained in nutrition work wil1find opportunities for service open to her i�a variety of fields, such as instructor in un�­versity, college, or secondary schools; nut,rt­tion worker in a public-school system, Wlt�infant welfare societies, the American ReCross, or state extension departments; aschemist or dietitian in hospitals; and asmanager of lunch rooms or dormitories.'j'1I_ •• _ •• _ •• - •• -lIn_ •• _n._ •• _ •• _ •• _, .. _ •• _n ....... ,� SCHOOL OF EDUCATION NOTES I+.-IO-IU-UI- •• - •• -II._nn_.u_lIn_ •• _ •• _ •• _a."",.,..·.,.Mr. Reavis will address the Michiga'�Schoolmasters Club at the University �Michigan on March 29.

An American universityshould endeavor to give its students thesdame opportunity enjoyed by Europ:ean stu-ents to work from first-hand materials, Butmost of the books now sought are so farunpublished, or so far untranslated.-r:he present post-war opportunity of se­ct�nng such manuscripts will soon t;'ass andWIll not 'soon recur. Alumni and friends ofother universities have the same convictionand are buying manuscripts, as are also vari­ous libraries, including the reference de­Partment of the New York Public Library,to which a gift of six million dollars hasJust been announced.The Manuscripts Committee addresses this request for contributions to _ all formerstudents of the University and to all otherfriends of the University, and friends of re­search and of old books. The committeebelieves that public-spirited citizens willprefer to place manuscripts in the U niver­sity where students and scholars of manydepartments are prepared to translate, edit.publish and comment, rather than in publiclibraries when there can he no special equip­ment for making the contents of the booksavailable to the public through published re­search and translation.The committee asks for gifts either ofparticular manuscripts or of general con­tributions. Gifts mav he made as memorialsor anonymously, or- in any way the dono�directs. Such arrangements may be madeto include not only gifts of manuscripts,but also for publication.Besides the manuscripts so far securedthe committee has also the offer of onealumnus to give a sum not to exceed$5,000.00 to equal the largest personal gift ofany other alumnus made for this purpose byJune 1st, 1923.

Iassume that- you have full details of theorganization formed here last month. Nearly500 Conference alumni turned out to the din­ner, officers were elected, and the organiza­tion officially launched.The local Chicago Alumni organizationdid not join in at this meeting, and othercolleges thought that the Chicago peoplewere opposed. Only three of us Chicagomen were present, as compared to 50 or60 from Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Pur­due, Wisconsin, etc. This was "bad busi­ness" for. the moment, but Quantrell hasmade up for that by calling a bunch of UStogether when we agreed that Chicagoshould go in, and even show extra interestto make up for the initial coldness.I have been appointed as member of theExecutive Committee of the Conference As­sociation to represent Chicago Alumni, andI shall see to it that Chicago has its propervoice and activity and representation.There must be around 5,000 ConferenceAlumni in New York. Their influence inmany directions, if it is organized as nowplanned and guided to be helpful, must beof no small value-s-especally in intersec­tional matters, and 'in general publicity.I should 'be glad to have you write meabout your notions as to what I can bestpush along as the representative of the localChicago Alumni. If you think best, writesuch things to Quantrell also; although Ishall make it a point to keep in touch with'him in essential matters.I hope you will give space and boostingcomments to this Conference movement,and that you will keep me posted as tothe things I can best work for to help carrYout the wishes of the University.Cordially yours,F.

They did not know anythingabout refrigeration.Much of the meat was put in the pickle orheavily salted and spiced to keep it. rBy the time fresh meat came to be eaten, itwas often so strongly flavored that the cooksalso used spices liberally in its preparation.It is interesting to know that the land whichowed its discovery in large measure to Europe'slack of refrigeration, should have. become theoriginator of this vital science.Today meat is dressed at centers of produc­tion, hauled hundreds of miles in perfect condi­tion and placed in the hands of the consumerfresh and sweet.The bountiful food supply of seasons of plentycan be carried over into periods of scant produc­tion, to the benefit of all.Swift & Company, among the first to make useof and develop this great servant of the humanrace, is still among the first in putting it to help­ful uses.Refrigeration does more than make a worldsupply of meat available. By increasing thevolume that can be handled it brings down thecost of meat to all. Swift & Company's profitfrom all sources is distributed over so manypounds of meat that it averages only a fractionof a cent per pound.Swift & Company, U. S.
