Each year,too, witnesses the observance ofHonor some change or some new de­President velopment in the life of the Un i­Burton versity. This year we comeback to the 'Quadrangles for thefirst reunion under the new administrationof Acting President Ernest De Witt Burton.In large measure, the reunion will be a gath­ering of Chicagoans in his honor. In honorof Dr. Burton, therefore, let us hold thegreatest reunion in our history-in numbers,class spirit, activity and enthusiasm. ActingPresident Burton openly and cordially looksto the alumni for proper cooperation in theprogress he is seeking to realize for ourAlma Mater. The reunion offers us the firstchance to demonstrate "in the mass" that,as alumni, we appreciate this request for co­operation and. that we intend to cooperateloyally, wholeheartedly and enthusiasticallyin the advancement of the University.Although in office but a few months, Dr.Burton is proving, what was fully expectedof him, a great administrator, a real forceIn Chicago's definite progress-a great Presi­dent. He is looking forward to the reunion,to meeting the alumni who, in affection forthe City Gray, return to the Quadrangles inthis ever-growing annual pilgrimage. Herecognizes and understands the profoundspirit of loyalty and appreciation that al­ways motivates such a demonstration. Heknows, too, that the thousands who returnfor the occasion represent the still morethousands who, on any particular reunion,regretfully find themselves unable to return.It is the alumni-it is their time-it' is their Alumni Day! He is eager and glad to wel­come them.But it is our privilege, a rare privilege, tobe there to be welcomed. Many alumni arecoming in from great distances. Certainlyall alumni living in and near the city ofChicago should be present. Who is therewho cannot, or who does hot care to giveup one day in the year, or at least part ofone day, to mingle again with collegefriends, to return for a moment into theyouthful and hopeful atmosphere of collegedays, to take part in a fine demonstration ofloyalty to Chicago? We trust there is noone so cold and unresponsive. ErnestDe Witt Burton is a great President-he de':'serves a great reunion. Let us honor him!Let us honor him by making the 1923 as­sembly the greatest reunion Chicago hasever held! Come back-Welcome home!*.* *In this number appears a review, by DeanDavid Allan Robertson, '02, of an edition ofChicago Poetns by Edwin H.Lewis, Ph.D., '94, author of theAlma Meier, The booklet ofChicago Poems is just comingout at the University Press and is in re­sponse to many requests from alumni andmembers of the University for such a collec­tion. Dr. Lewis has, on various notableoccasions in the history of the University,from the time he wrote the Alma Mater inthe early days, to his Ballad of Ryerson, readat the testimonial dinner last January to Mr.Ryerson on the occasion'<of His retirementas President of the Board of Trustees, . ablyexpressed thoughts and sentiments regardingChicagoPoems245246 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe University in verse of high merit. Thisbooklet now enables all who desire such acollection to obtain it in convenient and at­tractive yet inexpensive form. We arepleased' to note the publication of theseUniversity of Chicago Poems and to callspecial attention to them at this time.* * *We are pleased to announce that anothervaluable medieval manuscript has recentlybeen presented to the Univer­Another sity through efforts of theMannscrip,t Alumni Committee on Manu­Presented : scripts. It is the 14th and 15thcentury Compendiwm of Rogerof Waltham, noted and described elsewherein this number of the Magazine. To therare collection already presented it is atimely and noteworthy addition, not onlyas a medieval manuscript treasure but, aspointed out by Professor Manly in his �et­ter published in our April number, as an Im­portant source for research toward the endof a correct understanding and apprecia­tion of the lives, activities and ideals of ourmedieval ancestors. -Like the other manu­scripts, the Compendium will contribute muchof historic and educational value.This addition, in a measure, carries on theaim of the alumni to obtain for the Uni­versity a considerable number of such doc­uments. The generous offer of an alumnusto match amounts given by alumni for man­uscripts, up to $5000, should be met to thefull. The offer expires June 1st, and it, isto be hoped that it will be fully covered be­fore that date. With an additional $10,000thus made available by June, a number ofmanuscripts now greatly desired could bepurchased, and' the total list presented be­come a very impressive one. Contributions large or small will be welcomed. If youcare to assist, to any degree, at this mostopportune time, send us checks payable tothe Alumni Council, University of Chicago,and mark them "Manuscript Fund." Let ussupport the Committee that has alreadyachieved such notable results!* * *We have already commented on the sig­nificance of the approaching June Reunionas a tribute to Acting PresidentThe June Burton. The Reunion itself, ofReunion course, as an annual event onthe program of all alumni has adeep significance of its own. Looked atsuperficially, it is a time for "play"-whenalumni return to the Quadrangles in thespirit of youthful college days, renew ac­quaintances of "the good old days," andgenerally disport themselves in a spirit . ofjoviality. But beneath all this, indeed asits very foundation, there lies in the heartsof the alumni a profound feeling of gratitudeto the institution which endeavored so ably,in the formative period of their lives, toproperly prepare them for successful servicein the' world at large-their Alma Mater!And, truly, Chicago is an Alma Materof which every alumnus may well be proud,and to which every alumnus should seekto return at Reunion time in brief but sin­cere testimony of appreciation and loyalty.And, too, attending the Reunion is an ex­pression of appreciation of the extensiveefforts which are made each year by those·who have the Reunion in charge. The Uni­versity and the alumni in charge fully de­serve the heartiest support of all alumni.On the yearly calendar of the Universityappears this announcement--Alumni Day.That is your Day!

It has gone out, of course,with the first Reunion announcement, whichwas recently mailed out to thousands ofalumni. The Program is essentially that oiformer years-a program that, after yearsof experience and adaptation to our circum­stances, has proved generally successful and has become a Reunion tradition in mast fea­tures. Each year sees some minor changes,relating mostly to the time and arrangementof the events. But we have now a definiteReunion program that "fits well," is flexible,and, while presenting certain fixed features,allows ample time between for specialevents.Y'N ew events this year are the Fare­well Dinner to Professor Frederick Starr,the Foster Hall Reunion in honor of MissMyra Reynolds, and the Tour of NewBuildings on Alumni Day. The first twoare the result of circumstances occurringthis year.The ClassesFrom present indications, "we are glad toannounce," the anniversary classes are go­ing to "rise to the occasion." Just whattheir stunts and particular contributions willbe we can not-dare not-announce. Thisis all "secret stuff," which must be left secretuntil the hour of exhibition on Alumni Day.These classes, however, are bent on equalingthe shows of the anniversary classes that"done so noble" last June.

There were 104 alumniand alumnae present. Ernest E. Quantrell,'05, president of the Alumni Club, acted astoastmaster.During the dinner there were a numberof Chicago songs, with Lewis J. Fuiks, '16,at, the piano, and W. A. ("Bill") McDer­mid, '07, leading. the songs and cheers. Lu­cine Finch, ex-'04, entertained with severaldialect selections.Acting President Burton, in his address,stated that emphasis at the University wouldbe placed upon research and that this wouldihclude research in the humanities as wellas in science. One of the most importantresearches with which the University wouldconcern itself, he said, was the study of thepresent educational system. He pointed outthat the American college, in expandingInto the large university, had lost some ofthe characteristics of the small college thathad contributed much to the making ofmen and women, and that one of the prob­lems was to bring back some of this qualityof personal contact into the American col­leges."We are not going to convert our col­leges into research institutions solely," hesaid, "with dogs to experiment upon andmen to carryon the experiments, but nostudents." He told of the influence whichthe President of the small college he at­tended had upon him, and added that inthe large universities of today men entercollege, 'complete their studies and never seethe President until the dav they receivetheir diplomas from him'. -"What ma:keseducation," he declared, "is the stamp ofpersonalities." The solution he predictedmight come not so much in reduction ofthe number of students, but in some systemof grouping students and instructors so thatcloser personal contacts would result.Mr. Frank A. Vanderlip, ex, the otherspeaker, stated that in his experience W, est­ern college men, as compared with the menfrom Eastern colleges, ".,ere certainly su­perior, both in character and in the abilityto work." He made this statement afterremarking he had noticed signs of an "in­ferior complex" among gr.aduates of West­ern colleges when they mingled in the Eastwith alumni of such institutions as Harvard 249A F FA I RSand Yale. Mr. Vanderlip also took issuewith the persons who are saying the col-,leges and universities are turning out toomany men.

Mrs. E. H. Weaver of thePublic Library reviewed Sinclair Lewis'"Babbit" and Willa Cather's "One of Ours."This was the first time we had used abook review as our luncheon attraction. Theattendance of' about twenty-five womenshowed that this sort of thing is reallypopular.Professor R. M. Lovett was in Clevelandthat 'day, lecturing for the Women's CityClub. Since they kept him over the noonhour, we arranged to entertain him at teaat five o'clock. Fourteen women appeared,a crowd large enough to justify the occasionand yet . small enough to permit a cozy.almost intimate atmosphere. Mr. Lovetttalked informally of affairs on the campus.notably the change of presidents. In .hisown delightful way, he threw many Whlm�sical sidelights on persons and events at t�eUniversity which gave us impressions qUItedifferent from those .of our undergraduatedays.March 20. Annual election of officers ofthe University of Chicago Club of Clevelandwas held at a' dinner at 6 :30 P. M. at theWoman's Club_ Professor A. R. Hatton,ph.D.

Paul Goode of the Geography De­partment was the speaker of the evening.He talked of his travels in Europe lastsummer. Of special interest was his analy­sis of economic conditions in Europe andthe events leading up to the occupation ofthe Ruhr Valley. Though Dr. Goode closedhis speech in good time there were so manyquestions afterwards that the managementof the club had to turn out some of thelights before the crowd finally started forhome. Forty-six were present at thismeeting.April 12. The All-College Dinner in con­nection with the convention of Alumni Sec­retaries was a big event in the calendar ofthe Chicago Club. Twenty places wereassigned as Chicago's quota. All werefilled and some of our people sat at othertables. (A report of this evening is givenelsewhere in this number of the Magazine.)April 14.

Soaresof the Divinity School, and Miss GeorgiaChamberlin of the American Institute ofSacred Literature, at a luncheon at theHotel Winton.Willard Dickerson presided over themeeting and introduced the speakers. MissChamberlin told of the work of her depart­ment in sending out information on manyreligious subjects. .T'hose present were in­terested in learning what is being done tospread the knowledge of the modern viewof evolution, and many asked to be put onthe mailing list for this sort of literature.Mr. Pierrot reported some of the out­standing events of the convention of alumnisecretaries, noting the fact that the subjectof athletics had not appeared on the pro­gram. Interest had centered about waysand means by which alumni could be ofreal service to their respective institutions.Of course we enjoyed hearing that Chicago:eceives real recognition wherever its nameIS mentioned. In this convention Chicagohad furnished the speaker for the All-Col­le� Dinner, the song leader for the All­College Dinner. the toastmaster for thealumni secretaries' dinner, as well as aspeaker on the program of the convention.In fact Mr. Pierrot made us proud ofChicago and proud of Chicago's alumniSecretary.Dr. Soares talked of the change of presi­dents. It is remarkable how many times wecan hear about this event and still hearsomething new each time. From his inti­tnate acquaintance with President Burton',Dr. Soares brought us a vivid picture ofthe personality of the man as well as thePolicies of the president.May 12. The University of ChicagoWomen's May luncheon. Jeannette Israel,'13, will speak on "Advertising." MissIsrael is Advertising Manager of the H. 251Black Company and should give us an inter.esting talk.This concludes the activities of theCleveland Clubs for this season. Althoughno single meeting brought out over fiftypeople; there were eighty-six differentmembers and a large number of guestspresent during the year at the various meet­ings. There are eighty-four who have paiddues to the club, some of whom are notrepresented in the number of those attend­ing meetings, so that our active list includesnearly a hundred names of former Chicagostudents now living in Cleveland.Nell C.

Professor Blanchard spoke in ahumorous vein relating to some of the ex­periences he has had in his platform workand his work in Public Speaking at theUniversity. Professor Allee gave us theviewpoint of the younger professors relat­ing to the development of the University,stressing the necessity for an enlargedgraduate school and the desirability of thefaculty being permitted to engage in re­search for one or two quarters in successionwithout being troubled with any routineclass work.Dr. Mathews' address was most delightfuland he, too, made it clear that the develop­ment of the University in the future wouldbe along the lines of greater graduate schoolactivity with' some retrenchment possiblyin the undergraduate department.I hope that the above will be a satisfac­tory notice for the Alumni Magazine. Manythanks for the list of names, which I havesent to Mr. Bryan. . Yours sincerely,Tracy W.

The Honorable Newton D.Baker, of Johns Hopkins, former Secretaryof \i\T ar, presided. Unfortunately, owingto a sudden illness, Acting President Bur­ton, of Chicago, who was to be the speaker,could not attend. But fortunately he wasable to send Dean Nathaniel Butler, whodelivered a most informative and, greatlyappreciated address on the history, placeand function of the College in higher edu­'cation. Harry A. McDonald, of Chicago,led the mass. singing of popular 'songs,assisted by the Western Reserve and Casebands. This was the greatest gathering ofcollege men and women in the history ofCleveland, and steps were taken to form apermanent organization of the.

InevitablyII. G. went to the Penn Relays, and we are glad to,present his comments.] ,Chicago made a splendid showing in thePennsylvania Relay Carnival on April 28th.Coach Stagg entered five men: Pyott Mac­Farlane, Jones, Brickman and Bates.' Thefirst four composed the 440-yard and 880-yard relay teams, while Pyott, MacFarlane,Jones and Bates 'composed the mile team.Brickman also ran the high hurdles. Therecord of the team was third in the 440-yardrelay; second in the half mile; fourth in thernile: and second in the high hurdles. The"inside stuff" is 'even more convincing evi­dence of the fact that Chicago has "comeback". in track athletics.In the 440-yard relay, Chicago was a veryclose third, losing to Pennsylvania and JohnsBopkins in the, record time for the Pennrelays of 43 seconds. Chicago's time was43Ys, an average of 99/10 seconds to thehundred yards. Such teams as Kansas, win­ner in the Kansas relays, Harvard,. Lafay­ette, Princeton and Georgetown finished wellbehind. There were about 12 starters.In the half mile Chicago failed to win firstby inches, in the record time of 1 :29%, anaverage of 22% seconds per man, and ex­cept for accidental interference on the final_..lap Chicago would have won. At the be­ginning of the last relay Lafayette was fiveYards in the lead, Chicago second, andPennsylvania third. Lever of Pennsylvaniaaccidently bumped MacFarlane at the startand the latter was momentarily thrown com­�letely off his stride. Recovering, MaclIterally ran away from Lever, world's rec­Ord holder for 70 yards, and all but nippedthe tiring Lafayette runner at the tape.There were fifteen starters, and such teamsas Harvard, Princeton, Navy, Kansas,­Western champions-Georgetown and JohnsBopkins, were trailing badly. Navy was aPOor fourth. The race was run in the rain.In the one mile Chicago was a closefourth, being passed by Georgetown on thefinal sprint when MacFarlane, who waspslainly spent from previous races, weakened.vracuse and Virginia were first and second.Chicago's time was about 4:24, and the raceWas run on a soggy track in a terrific rain­storm. Pyott and Bates des'erve chief hon­°Rrs, the former. running the first lap. in 5.0at and Bates 111 5t¥5. Bates-a senior-c-is a "made-over" dash-man, and his perform­ance was exceptional under the conditions.Clarence "Jake" Brickman is quite theequal of our old-time Fred Maloney in thehigh hurdles. This 18 year old junior, win­ner of the Indoor Conference hurdles, ranin sensational fashion, defeating decisivelysuch famous hurdlers as Havers of Harvard,Eastern intercollegiate -outdoor champion;Treman of Cornell, Eastern intercollegiateindoor champion; Hauffrnan of Penn State;runner-up in the Eastern intercollegiate, andThompson of Princeton, the famous' all­around champion of the world. The hurdleswere run on the grass. Brickman ran sec­ond in his preliminary and semi-final heats,in the semi-final his own time being 15Y;;seconds. After competing in the half milerelay, Brickman returned' for the final of thehurdles. He led the field for 90, yards, butwas beaten by a yard by Moore, a sensa­tional freshman from Penn State, in 15%seconds. It was raining very hard and the'field was soft and muddy. Treman of Cor­nell was a poor third. Brickman looks goodfor 15 flat this very year.I have noted. with great interest the fineshowings of Campbell Dickson in the highjump, Egil Krogh in the mile, and others atthe Drake games. All this leads me to be­lieve with confidence that, as in football,Chicago is again coming into "its own" onthe track.The Magazine Wins the ArmyApril 14, 1923.My dear Mr. Pierrot:I have recently resigned a captaincy inthe Judge Advocate General's Departmentof the Regular Army in order to return tocivil practice.

For ifthere is one thing more than another thathistory proves it is that an ignorant demo­cracy cannot survive.In one of these MSS, as a mediaevalist, Iam especially interested, namely the so-'called Yorkshire Manuscript, which oncewas possessed by the Cistercian monasteryof Melsa (or Meaux) in Yorkshire, and en­titled "A Book of the nine sciences." Themere fact that the mediaeval mind usuallyenumerated seven sciences instead of nineat once piques the curiosity to ascertainwhat. new additional. sciences the broaden­ing mind of Europe distinguished. It is too early yet to venture upon athorough analysis and discussion of thecontent of this MS, partly because study ofit will entail long and careful examination,partly because on account of its value theMS itself ought not to be handled more thanabsolutely necessary, so that photostat copiesmust be made of it. But a few words inregard to 'the intellectual revolution of thetwelfth and thirteenth century, of which thisMS is an expression, may be of interest­For it cannot be understood except inconnection with the intellectual conditionof its time and the spirit of its age.The time has long since past when the. Middle Ages were regarded as an epoch ofutter darkness. In many ways it was su­perior to our own age. And it is certainthat what we are we are to a very greatextent through the Middle Ages. Theyhave not yet given up all their secrets tohistorians, but-to omit every other greatcontribution-the Middle Ages were. a greatepoch. in the intellectual advancement ofmankind.The so-called Twelfth Century Renais­sance was a deeper and more original intel­lectual revolution in Europe than the ItalianTHE YORKSHIRE MANUSCRIPT-ANOTHER MS. PRESENTED 257Renaissance. The latter owed much to theformer, far more than most students realize.In passion to discover truth, in spirit ofresearch, in creative imagination, one canfind. no nobler century in history. 'Prof.Haro_ld Hoffding, the distinguished Danishphilosopher, has justly written:"The mediaeval age yields to no otherperiod in the energy with which it used themeans of culture which lay at its disposal,limited as these were by the historical cir­cumstances of the time. In later and morefavored periods, commanding a rich wealthof content, we shall look in vain for as greata power in elaborating and closely appro­priating these riches as was dedicated bythe middle ages. . . . For the carrying outof its ideas in detail the middle ages . . .had at its disposal a miserably inadequatematerial." .In other words, what the Middle Ageslacked was technique. The scholars of thattime possessed the mind and the spirit, andwere far less ignorant than is commonlysupposed. No great scientific scholar ofthe high middle ages believed that the earthwas flat. Its rotundity was perfectly wellknown. The reason of eclipses was under­stood and attempts were even made to cal­culate them. The true scholar of today islikely to have mingled sentiments of admir­ation and humility when he reads the storyof how Adelard of Bath in the first half ofthe twelfth century spent a whole summeron the. coasts of Wales and Ireland study­ing the flux and reflux of the tides, andpatiently worked out a theory of the phe­nomenon. We do not know alLabout thetides yet. And what shall we think of DunsScotus (the first of all 'dunces') spending awhole winter in a monastery in' Paris, withcharcoal on a whitewashed wall, calculatingthe precession of the equinoxes,' in whichhe employed both Greek and Arabic mathe­matics? Albertus Magnus, the great natu­ralist, at the beginning of his book onminerals, acutely discusses the differentways in which minerals may be classified,and weighs the qualifications of each method.Is not such spirit scientific? He had nomodern chemical or physical laboratory toassist his researches; but he had the spiritof research. Roger Bacon's Opus Majushas been truly called "at once the Encyclo­paedia and the Organon of the thirteenthcentury," and his famous indictment of thescience and the scientists of his time is notwhat it seems: it is really the complaint of agreat soul impatient as a genius ever.Is withthe slowness with which truth is discovered,discontented with the smug content of theignorant, and sometimes disheartened bythe limitations under which he worked andthe indifference which he met from thosewho had no perception of the value and thenature of pure research. For as riow, therewere' Philistines and Fundamentalists inthose days, too. The debt of the world to mediaeval scien­tific research is not a small one. We oweto the cloistered scholars of that time ourmodern system of notation and algebra, thecompass, the magnifying glass, gunpowder"printing, the art of distillation, every acid'and alkali not already naturally occurring innature, the windmill, linen paper, the "organ,sugar, many of our medicines. One of. theparadoxes today is the ignorance of evenmen of science of what they owe to medi­aeval and renaissance scientific scholarship.The continuity can easily be proved. Ger­many excelled in mathematical studies in thelater middle ages. The line begins with AI­bertus Magnus, and' runs through John ofSaxony, Conrad of Meginburg, Regiomon­tanus, Georg Peurbach to Copernicus with­out a break. Columbus when he discoveredAmerica, Vasco de Gama when he roundedthe Cape of Good Hope, Magellan when hepenetrated the straits which bear his nameand circumnavigated the globe for the firsttime, all these carried Regiomontanus's as­tronomical tables in their chart houses. Whowill say that the modern age does not owemuch to mediaeval science?The "Book of the nine sciences" in theUniversity of Chicago Library is one chap­ter in this great history of the progress ofthe human mind in .a great age, a slightglimpse of. which I have tried to give in thisbrief article. Perhaps I may later' furnishthe reader who is interested in this accountwith a brief history 'of the monastery ofMelsa in Yorkshire, where this preciousmanuscript once reposed.Another Manuscript Presentedto the' U nive:rsityThrough the activities of the committeein charge of getting funds for the purchaseof manuscripts for the University, anotherrare and valuable manuscript, the sixth, hasbeen purchased and was presented to theUniversity last month. This manuscript isthe Compendium Morale of Roger of Wal­tham. In his letter concerning the manu­scripts desired by the University, printed in ourApril nu�ber, Professor John M. Manly, ofthe English Department, said: "The C ompen­dium Morale of Roger of Waltham is like­wise most important for the understandingof mediaeval life and thought. . . . Suchworks as this Compendium are collectionsof examples to teach by direction, or bywarning, how one should live to be success­ful.

The work ofthe track, tennis and golf teams is beyondexpectation, but baseball seems to be as badas last season. On the whole, however, ath­letic fans on the Midway are well pleasedwith everything in general.The track team, although it has made nobrilliant splurge as a whole, may be wellcalled a strong Conference team. The funda­mental weakness of an ill-balanced team,noted at the beginning of the season, hasbeen largely remedied by the release of menstrong in the field events from the indoorteams. Individuals on the Maroon team havestarred in many of the big meets of thecountry. Captain Egil Krogh has alreadymade a brilliant record, winning the milerun in the Conference race, leading the fieldin the 1,500 meter race at the all-importantIllinois Relays and starring on the relayteams representing the University at theother big meets. A Maroon relay team, ledby Jim Pyott and composed of Brickman,J ones, MacFarlane and Bates; travelleddown to the Penn Relays and upheld thehonors of the west by placing in the mile,half mile and quarter mile races. MacFar­lane' won his laurels in a break-neck finishat the end of the half mile event. Over­coming a large lead, he crossed the tape twoor three yards behind the LaFayette runnerand took second place for the Maroons.The baseball team got away to . a goodstart by winning from Northwestern in thefirst game of the season by a 3-1 score.The Purple, however, revenged their de­feat by returning and beating the Varsityon Stagg field a week later. Although theteam has played many close games sinceshe has been able to mark no more winson her slate. The main difficulty seems tolie in lack of team work and the amountof green material that it has been necessaryto whip into shape. The pitching staff hasbeen weak, and although the return of RoyArnt to the mound has furnished some hope,the fans still have room for complaint regard­ing the number of hits scored by the op­posing batsmen. The team entrained forColumbus to meet the Buckeyes in a Con­ference game on May 5 and during itsstay there was royally entertained by W.S. Harman, a member of the class of '00,and a prominent business rnan in that city.A big dinner at the Columbus AthleticClub was the high spot in the entertain-­ment furnished by Mr. Harman. Before A Close Play At Thirdthis game the team elected. George Yardleycaptain.The golf team has promise of repeatinglast year's performance in copping its sec­ond Conference championship. Lead byCaptain Hartman, one of the strongest play­ers in the country, the team has already de­feated the Armour Institute squad and hasalso won from Purdue in the first Confer­ence match. of the season. Homan, Millerand Woolfolk are the other members of theteam.Lead by Captain A. A. Stagg, Jr., thetennis team has been undergoing a seriesof preliminary elimination matches forchoice of_ Varsity players. With Franken­stein, last year's captain, Dave Wilson,Valentine, Evans and Millenbach, there is awealth of good material to choose from. Theteam has already won from Northwesternand tied with Michigan in the first Big Tenmatches of the season.Invitations have been sent to the lead­ing high schools in the country asking themto send representatives to this year's N a­tional Interscholastic Track Meet, to be heldMay 25 and 26 at Stagg field. Russell Car­roll has been appointed student chairmanof the meet and has acting under him stu­dent committees to take care of all work inconnection with the tournament and withthe housing and entertaining of the en­trants. Over 800 high school and academyathletes are expected to compete. Thetrack Interscholastic has become one of thebig athletic events of the country and indi­cations are that this year will see one ofthe most successful tourneys ever held atthe University. H. H.

His query suggested the idea thatperhaps it might be of interest to others ofthe alumni to know a little more of the useof Ida Noyes at other times. To indicatejust how "quiet" we are ordinarily, let meenumerate some of the more importantactivities in the clubhouse during the firstten days of March.On Thursday, the first, the Italian Clubheld one of their regular meetings, using theNorth Reception Rooms on' the second floor,and serving Italian refreshments. TheYoung Women's Christian Association wereunusually busy, first with a large tea incharge of the Social committee to introducetheir candidates for office for the next elec­tion; then the Publicity committee had afriendly little party in the evening in theY. W. room with games and a marshmallowroast; while the Social Service committeewere giving a dinner in the sun parlor. Inthe afternoon the Federation used the stu­dent offices for their regular afternoon ofsewing. Twenty' girls worked on the littlegarments being prepared for the hospitals,and added a social flavor with tea and cook­ies.Friday, the Lutheran Club-dined togetherin the sun parlor, the dinner being preparedby some of the members in the adjoiningkitchenette. They were considerate enoughnot to respond too loudly to their after­dinner toasts in order not to disturb theUndergraduate Classical Club who were giv­ing a Greek play in the theater, later servingrefreshments in the sun parlor which was hurriedly cleared of the banquet tables. Thesame evening the east end of the secondfloor was a busy place also. The DamesClub entertained their husbands at theirannual party. Various games were playedin the reception rooms and the Y. W. roomwas fitted with small tables where supperwas served. Later the rugs were taken upand the evening ended with dancing.Saturday, the third, a most brilliant affairwas carried out by the Spanish Club, a realNoche de Fiesta. Many very beautiful flagsof the Pan American countries were hungand real Spanish dances given. Spanish fans,high back combs, and handsome black lacemantillas worn by many of the guests, addeda picturesque old-world charm, to the gayand colorful scheme. The Spanish Consuland other distinguished guests, some ofthem in foreign costume, honored the occa­sion with their presence. At the same time,the Graduate Classical Club were having amusical program on the second floor. Pro­fessor and _ Mrs. Buck were their guests ofhonor; a number of Greeks from outside theUniversity were present. Home-made Greekcandy and cake and a most unusual lookingGreek sweetmeat served with the coffeepoured from our samovars created quite aforeign atmosphere. ,This year the Chicago Alumnae Club hasinaugurated a series of Sunday afternoonteas and tours over the hall for the seniorgirls of the high schools of Chicago andvicinity, where our Alumnae are teaching.On March 4th the high schools of the WestSide,-Austin, Harrison, Medill, and Mar­shall-to the number of two hundred, en­joyed this treat and went away inspired, notonly with appreciation of the beauty andresources of this building, but' with a realenthusiasm for college life in general.On Monday the usual meetings of thevarious clubs were combined in a meetingof Interclub, when Miss Talbot met withthe women to talk over future plans. Thismeeting was preceded by a dinner in the sunparlor. The Spanish Club used the theateron Tuesday afternoon for a lecture, servingtheir usual .r efreshrnents later in the sunparlor. That afternoon, also, the FurloughClub, which consists of missionaries study­ing here during their year of furlough, en­joyed a social meeting on the second floor.About seventy-five men and women at­tended; some of them were dressed in thecostumes of the countries where they serveas leaders of Christian thought; The Fed­eration had their Installation service andTHE USES OF IDA NOYES HALLthe Italian Club used the Theater, while theGraduate Women's Club used the Alumnaeroom for an informal tea on Wednesdayafternoon. .Thursday was a busy day. The women ofthe Settlement League entertained thewomen of the Settlement Clubs with a mu­sical program in the theater, a reception onthe second floor where they were served toice cream, cake and coffee, and later a tourof the Hall. Fortunately it was possible toserve the one hundred and seventy promptly,as the Committee who were preparing theInstallation banquet for the Women's Ath­letic Association on the third floor wereanxiously waiting for the Cauldon plates toUse for their salads. The Pan Hellenic groupused the Library at the same hour for asocial meeting, with the joy of a fire in thefireplace and the service of tea from theWilliam and Mary china.Friday afternoon the Freshman Women'sClub used the Y. W. room for a "firelightparty." The girls sat about on the rugs inthe flickering light from the open fire whilesomeone read out loud and pistachio icecream was consumed. The fragrance. of thecoffee which the German Club was servingin the North Reception rooms added to thefestive feeling. In the evening the Friend­ship' dinner was served in the big Gym­nasium by the Commons Department.Wyvern had a dance in the theater, with abuffet supper served in the sun parlor whileon the second floor a number 'of graduatestudents used the reception rooms with aprogram of music and served refreshments.Saturday, the tenth, brought the regularmeeting of the Dames Club in the after­noon with a program and tea. A "tour" ofthe Hall for students from the Art Institutewas cared for by some of our guides. Themedical women of Alpha Epsilon Iota for­got for one evening their phials and chartsand entertained 'their friends at a dance inthe theater. At the same time the Orderof the Gray Towers, which is the socialorganization of our Library staff, had theirquarterly frolic on the second floor. Theyhad music and games and seemed to forgetthat volumes and trucks were ever in theirway. Supper was served at small tables, andthe evening closed with a little dancing. Onthis same evening a very unusual dinnerwas served in the sun parlor by the Philip­pino Triangle Club. Their special guest wasProfessor Starr. Except for the ice creamthe menu was quite foreign and much ofthe food was prepared in the kitchenette bya Philippino woman student.The numbers who attended the scheduledevents described were 2,937. This re pre­sen ts ten days of not unusual use of theclubhouse for the larger groups. It wouldbe impossible to mention the various indi­vidual uses. Many of. those taking theirmeals in the refectory, as well as those reg- 261istered in physical education classes, availthemselves of the privileges of the check­room, rest rooms, lavatories, shampoobooths, and sewing rooms. There is an aver­age of 1,200 meals served every. school dayat Ida Noyes Hall, and about 600 use the.gymnasium every day.Ida Noyes Hall TheatreEvery morning many sandwiches are pre­pared in the second. floor kitchenette forsale in the Y. W. room, the proceeds goingto a scholarship fund. The third floor kit-­chenette is used daily by some forty or fiftystudents for the preparation of their ownlunches.With the exception of the Friendship Din­ner, all the refreshments served at thesevarious functions were prepared in. the kit­chenettes and the equipment of the club­house including china, silver, linens, cande­labra and samovars, was used. If the matterof refreshments seems unduly emphasized, it. must be noted that this is a record of onlythose events which are more or less socialin character. No mention is made of themany non-social meetings held in the club­house regularly. The Clubhouse Departmentis always ready to assist in planning menus,decorations, and arrangements for carryingout all of these varied interests of the stu­dent social life, finding a keen pleasure inhelping the women of the University toenjoy to the fullest extent the use of theirbeautiful Hall.Thursday is Alumnae day at Ida NoyesHall. The Alumnae Athletic Associationmeet at four o'clock for tea and afterwardstake their choice of classes in general gym­nastics, swimming, bowling, rhythms, folkand social dancing. They meet for dinnerin the refectory and have dancing, swim­ming and bowling again in the evening.For those of the Alumnae who have not en­joyed the privileges of the clubhouse duringtheir college years it may be explained thatit is necessary to come to the office of theclubhouse to learn of the dates which areopen and to make definite registrations foruse of- the various rooms for either large orsmall affairs.262 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEMajor Harold E. MarrAfter four years of successful service atthe University. Major Marr, Head of theMilitary Science Department, will be trans­ferred to other Army fields this Summer.President Burton's Definition of ResearchIn closing his recent Convocation State­ment, Acting President Ernest DeWittBurton gave this striking definition of re­search as the University of Chicago willinterpret it in the future: "Recognizing thatit is our duty, whatever others do, to em­phasize research, we shall define research inno narrow sense, as if it could be conductedsolely in laboratories of the physical sci­ences, but we shall steadfastly maintain thatmen who conduct research, and the menfor whom it is conducted, are at least asimportant as the researches which theyconduct, and that our goal is not science ina vacuum, but science that serves humanity,indeed more adequately stated, a betterhumanity."The Teaching of Jesus in Its HistoricalRelationshipsOne of the important books appearing inApril from the University of Chicago Pressis that by President Ernest De Witt Burtonon The Study of the Teachinq of Jesus in ItsHistorical Relationships. In his prefacePresident Burton says:"Profoundly convinced of the value forour day and generation of the study of thelife and teaching of Jesus as the record ofthese has been preserved for us in, thegospels of the New Testament, I have forsome years given myself in my Universityteaching with special interest to a courseon 'The Teaching of Jesus.' In this workI have increasingly felt the need of a book which should ,present the material, both ofI esus' own teaching and, for purposes ofcomparison, of that of his contemporaries.It is to meet this need that I have preparedthis volume."To enable the student more quickly andeasily to grasp the meaning of the gospelpassages, they have been translated intomodern English.Notable Bequest to the University FromEdward Emerson Barnard of theYet" kes 0 bservatoryBy his will Professor Edward EmersonBarnard, for more than twenty-five yearson the staff of the Yerkes Observatory; hasbequeathed to the University all of hisastronomical books and to the Observatoryall the medals that have been given himfor astronomical work, as well as the smallastronomical instruments now on exhibitionin the Observatory.To the University also Professor Barnardhas given his home and the grounds whichbelong to it which adjoin the grounds ofthe Yerkes Observatory, to honor the mem­ory of his wife, Rhoda Calvert Barnard.Among the medals awarded to ProfessorBarnard for his work in practical astronomyare the Lalande, the Arago, and the I anssengold medals from the French Academy ofSciences; the gold medal of the Royal As­tronomical Society of Great Britain; andthe Bruce gold medal of the AstronomicalSociety of the Pacific.Dr. Barnard was the discoverer of thefifth satellite of jupiter, and also of sixteencomets, and had made many photographs ofthe Milky Way, comets, and nebulae.New Gifts to the UniversityThe University Board of Trustees an­nounces that the Metropolitan Life Insur­ance Company has again renewed its grantof $3,000 to the Department of Hygiene andBacteriology for special investigation inrepiratory diseases.Another gift is that of $1,500 for workbeing done by. the Oriental -Institute ofthe University.Elected' President of the North CentralAssociation of Colleges and Sec­ondary SchoolsAt the recent meeting in Chicago of theNorth Central Association of Colleges andSecondary Schools, Director Charles Hub­bard Judd, of the School of Education, waselected president for the ensuing year.

Considerable curriculummaterial has been prepared by different or­ganizations interested in. child welfare, butnone of it is suitable for use with childrenof kindergarten age. It falls upon the teac�­ers themselves, therefore, to develop theirown health programs,It was thought that some of our readersmight be interested in two lines of healthtraining which have been carried on in thekindergarten of the University ElementarySchodl, Both of these have to do with theforming of habits, the one being an effortto make habitual certain specific modes ofbehavior in school, the other to develop in­terests and attitudes in school which wouldcontribute to the forming of habits forwhich the home must be primarily respon­sible.Forming Specific Health Habits While inSchool-The habits selected as desirable towork for were the following: Use handker­chief when necessary; cover mouth whencoughing or sneezing; put nothing in themouth except clean food and drink; usedrinking fountain properly; wash hands be­fore eating school lunch; keep feet dry, ex­cept in cases over which child has no con­trol' control voice; play vigorously out ofdoo;s; maintain good posture in standing,walking, and sitting.The selection was based upon the needsof this particular group of children, dete:­mined by the' teacher's knowledge of theirhome environment and observation of theirmodes of behavior in school. These childrencome to school clean, hence there is no needof giving attention t"? h.abit forming in t�ismatter, In some districts 111 a great Citythis would be one of the first habits theteacher would try to form, On the otherhand the habit of washing the hands beforeeating the mid-morning school lunch wouldprobably have to be established with thesechildren even if they were habituated towashing before meals at home. Similarly,although all of the children come to schoolsupplied with handkerchiefs many of themneed to be habituated to using them whennecessary,'That progress is being made in the forma­tion of specific habits is shown in the fol­lowing quotation from' a report made in Feb- ruary by Miss Adams, who is in charge ofthe work."At a Mothers' meeting on November 7,1922, I explained the health program whichI had mapped out for the kindergarten.They endorsed the plan enthusiastically,pledged and have given the support of thehome. The kindergarten teachers have at­tempted to live up to their responsibilitiesand the children have gone quite a way inthe establishment of the health habits laiddown for them., In general they havelearned to cover their mouths when cough­ing and sneezing, and if by chance one ortwo do forget, they are usually corrected bythe other children. With three exceptionsthe children have learned to use their hand­kerchiefs when it is necessary. These threechildren still have to be reminded. A fairlysatisfactory beginning has been made inkeeping everything but clean food', out ofthe mouth. We still have a long way to 1"'0in establishing habits of voice control, wash­ing hands before eating, and in keeping feetdry, ,"It may be by chance, but we hope it isbecause of the careful carrying out of ourhealth program that there has been verylittle sickness in the kindergarten, no con­tagious diseases and only five children outfor a period of more than a week. Thirtyof the forty-one children have not been ab­sen t more than three days in January andeighteen have a perfect attendance record."Developing Interests and Attitudes inSchool Which Help Toward the Establish­ing of Health Habits in the Home-Thereare certain habits essential to good healthfor which the home must be primarily re­sponsible, especially with five- and six-year­old children, and yet the school may oftenbe a large factor in creating interest andgiving information which will reinforce ef­forts that the parents are making. The fol­lowing examples from the kindergarten illus-trate this point. .The childr en have been weighed and mea­sured at the end of each month. They weretremendously interested in the first weigh­ing and measuring and it led to animateddiscussion concerning the kinds of food thatmake one grow big and tall, A little laterthe fact came out that John had been absentseveral times because he would not eat aproper breakfast. Public opinion concerningthe importance of eating the kind of foodthat would make you grow had developedFORMING HEALTH HABITS IN KINDERGARTENsufficientlv by this time to have some effectupon J ohn and he was absent no more forthe same reason. In this connection otheritems, such as play out of doors; sleeping'with window's open, etc., were discussed ashaving to do with keeping strong and wellIn the meantime Patrick had brought afolder to school picturing, and describing "aday's trip through healtnland." It showedthe following stops which the "Health Spe­cial" should make in the course of a child'sday: Drinkwater, 7 :00 A.M.; Orange Valley,7:30 A.M.; Oatmeal Town, 7:35 A.M.; HotSoup Springs, 12 :30 P.M.; Spinach Greens,12 :40 P.M.; Playground Meadows, 3 :00P.M.; Milkville, 5:30 P.M.; Baked PotatoHills, 5 :35 P.M.; Long Sleep Mountain,7 :<10 P.M. Coming as it did after the ex­perience described, the children understoodthe analogy and enoyed it immensely. Theirinterest was so great that it was thoughtworth while to suggest that they make somebig pictures of the different stations andtell the other children about it at an assem­bly. .A day or two later nine partiallysketched posters were prepared, each to befilled in with the essential item. This thechildren did by cutting and pasting picturesof milk bottles and potatoes, coloring "Spin­ach Greens," etc. When the posters werecompleted, they were discussed again bythe group. A student observer happened tobe present that morning and made the fol­lowing report of the exercise: '"The first station, Miss Adams said, waspassed about seven A.M. She pointed outthe large glasses in the picture and then an­nounced that it was 'Drinkwater Station.'At this the children fairly chuckled. A dis­cussion followed: 'Why drink this water?'Some of the replies were: 'To make youhealthy,' 'To wake yourself up,' 'Becauseyou're thirsty.' The. next station was'Orange Valley' and here as at 'Drink­water Station' the emphasis was placed onthe health side of the question. 'OatmealTown' was represented by a big factoryin the background and a large dish of oat­meal in the foreground. At this station onechild volunteered the information that 'ifyou don't eat and sleep well you won't beable to come to school, and then you can'tgo to high schoo1.' 'A stop that we makejust about noon is called "Hot SoupSprings,'" said Miss Adams. There wereappropriate drawings of soup springs whichthe children readily pointed out. 'This isone of the things that give you pink cheeks.'said Miss Adams when she showed 'SpinachGreens.' The sixth station showed childrenswinging and playing in the outdoors andwas called 'Playground Meadows.' Thevalue of play was then discussed. '''Milk­ville" station makes you grow,' declaredMiss Adams. The group decided that onelarge glass of milk a rlay_ was about the ap­propriate amount. At 'Baked Potato Hills'the superiority of baked potatoes over thosefried or otherwise, prepared was emphasized. 265The last station, 'Long Sleep Mountain,' wasrepresented by ail hotel at the foot of amountain. 'It should be reached aboutseven o'clock in the evening. Notice thesewindows-how do you know that the peo­ple here are sleeping?' 'Because the win-. dows are' up,' declared one child. Ninechildren were then chosen from many vol­unteers to show the posters in' assembly andtell when and why these stops should bemade. This very simple program was pre­�ented the following day and greatly en­Joyed by the primary grades."This seri,�,s :ilJ..Qf experiences, culminating inthe assembly program, made a strong im­pression. As the subjects -of food, sleep, ex­er cise, growth, etc., have since come upfrom time to time, the children's commentshave shown not only intelligent interest inthe significance of these matters but theyindicate that in many cases behavior hasbeen - influenced. Reports from mothers tell.the same story. One youngster who wasconstitutionally averse to spinach' as a foodbegan eating it of his own accord after hisdel i g h t f u l associations with "SpinachGreens." Another, enamoured of "Milk­ville," ceased to protest when asked to drinkhis two daily glasses or more.The "Trip, Through Healthland" has" beenrecorded here with some hesitation becauseit r.epresents a type of teaching which mighteasily become" formal 'and - meaningless .. " Itseemed justifiable 'in this case because of�he interest in the' subject already -developed111 very direct and natural ways and becauseof the children's appreciation of its signifi­cance and their pleasure in it.Incidental Health Teaching-Home andcommunity life topics and projects affordopportunities for incidental health teaching.In the housekeeping plays, the small moth­ers may be encouraged to see that theirdoll children are properly bathed, that theyare put to bed early, and that the windowsin their sleeping rooms are open; when theymarket care should be taken that milk cer­eal, fruit, etc., are bought for' the children'again, that these same children are properlydressed when they go out in cold weather ..Similarly, in the construction of a village,a town, or a city street, provision for com­munity health and safety may be made inthe form of garbage receptacles, dangersigns, traffic police service, a fire depart-,merit, a public playground" city' parks, etc.All of these provisions should be the out- 'growth of direct observation of the real ob­jects and activities, and an understanding oftheir need. These and similar items mayhe .made the subjects for conversation peri­ods, group composition, beginning readinglessons, dramatic plays, and drawing, andthus kept before the children in many in­teresting and delightful ways. Experiences'of the kinds described furnish a fund ofclear ideas upon which the more systematichealth training. of later, grades may be based.266 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MA(;AZINEBook ReviewsEdwin Her}?ert Lewis, Ph.D., '94CHICAGO'S LAUREATEUniversity of. Chicago Poems: By EdwinHerbert Lewis, Ph.D. 1894. (The Uni­versity of Chicago Press. 1923.)Gratitude for the loyalty, intelligence,feeling, energy, and skill which Dr. Lewishas promptly and generously given to AlmaMater on occasions when there was needof significant poetic expression, must move allChicago alumni who see this book. TheAnglo-Saxon scop touched his game-woodto many lays of ancient glories and heroicdeeds; the wandering glee-man delightedroyal households with praise-poems; poetscrowned by people or king have celebratedgreat occasions and noble men. So hereare odes by Chicago's laureate.In mead hall and palace ancient audiencesknew the stories told or hinted at by min­strels. Our modern scop compliments hisaudience by assuming rich connotations forhis words. Generations of students haverejected the revised version of Alma Mater,choosing rather to educate matriculants inthe significance of the "City White." Thesame earnest willingness richly to store themind should always mark the educated manand enable him to share the full meaningsof these lines:"Ask Babylon for bread, she only givesA wordy stone."The House of the Word. "Say what more subtle instrument can writeA single micron of immortal worthWhen. it records the waves of humanhope?"111 ater H umanissima.* * *"They wrought it with buried sunlight,. black fern and the irised oi1."The Ballad of Ryerson.Certainly a man with a University of Chi­cago education will note how Dr. Lewis hasin Mater Humanissima referred to the Chi­cago School of Philosophy and Chicago the­ology, the Chamberlin planetesimal hypoth­esis, the Michelson use of the interferometerin measuring; and how in The Ballad ofRyerson recent scientific developments are in­dicated:"N one dreamed of the lightning massedIn the welded heart of an atom.".. The Ballad of Ryerson.A Chicago man will welcome also referencesto Chicago personalities-William VaughanMoody and William Rainey Harper: ."Ah, one there was, our lauriger, for whomThe harp of Aeschylus rang unafraidIn times of hesitationBut him the breezeImpassioned holds, a region breath, a faintDiffused splendor of Promethean fireStruck from the fennel on its way to earth."The House of the Word.* * *"Hebraic-minded in Teutonic frame,Great toiler, builder p"reat, and greaterfriend,Creative hope, aspiring like a flame,Wielder of power to power's most nobleend,Live! live in us, brave spirit, teaching stillThe broader vision and the braver act.And in that valley of the staff and rod,Teach us the hero's will,Who smiles from lips by human anguishracked, .And dies firm-trusting in a human God."Mater H umanissima.I t should be the pride of every Chicagoanto be richly conscious of the significance ofeach of, Dr. Lewis' words-not merely thosereferring to cuneiform inscriptions on claytablets or coal-but those about fascinatingachievements of the physicists of the pastgeneration, about Moody's Ode in a Time ofHesitation and The Fire-bringer; and aboutDr. Harper's Old Testament studies and hisreligion. Widsith, the far-farer, expected hisreaders to know something of old Teutonickings. Dr. Lewis, faring farther than Wid­sith, among the stars with Michelson or in­side of an atom with Millikan, deserves in­telligent reading.(Continued on page 277)THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 267���������������������������������������������������� �� YOUR FAVORITE PROFESSOR �ss ss� Photos Now Available §� �� �§ Size 5x7 sepia-toned photographs in a neat �� frame, suitable for standing as an easel, or �� for hanging on the wall.

".They had to" make a most solemn oath "thatwe, as sworn butchers of this city, shall kill nocattle, hogs, etc., without a ticket of consentfrom the collectors of the mayor and aldermanexcept it be for the Rt. Hon. Governor, RichardNicholls. So help us, God Almighty."Later, all meat had to be killed in a publicplace provided.* * *Today all thisIs changed. New York has todraw most of its meat from packing houseshundreds of miles away.It is a far cry from· the primitive packingplants of New Amsterdam to the sanitary, sci­entific, and cost-saving plants of Swift &'Company which are scattered through the livestock regions of the Middlewest and West, andwhich keep up a, continuous eastward flow ofchoicest meats.* * *:, C'Q'maider the item of sanitation alone: in the earlydays no one was responsible for cleanliness., No'w we have sanitary laws and U.
