This Congregational Seminary is the largest of the theological schoolsnow affiliated with the University. Construction of the section on the right, with the tower, was begun last spring and isnow almost completed; the main dormitories are located here, on Woodlawn Avenue. The architecture conforms to theGothic style of the University, but the building material of brick and stone, similar to that of the new Quadrangle Club,preserves the individuality of the Seminary. A note concerning the Seminary appears in our "University Notes." 00�'-l�tJ:1c:::<.......�tJ:1�V)...........,0..::::o'1;<)�.......C}��()�����.......<tJ:1The University of ChicagoMagazineVOL. XVI No.3JANUARY, 1924tEVENTS� .At the December Convocation anothergift of rare and valuable manuscripts wasmade to the University. Else­Another where in this number the giftMSS. Gift and presentation are recorded insome detail. This gift-of threemanuscripts greatly desired by several de­partments of the University-carries on theplan of presenting such much needed re­search material by the Alumni which wasstarted so auspiciously last spring, as re­corded in the Magazine at that time. Theremay be, of course, occasional lapses in thegiving of such material-but a "manuscripttradition" has been well started, and as theyears pass this tradition should certainly re­sult in considerable timely benefit to manyDepartments.A most significant feature of this lastgift is that it was presented not by an indi­vidual alumnus or by some group, but by aclass. This is the first gift of any specialimportance ever made to the University byany class after its graduation. To the Classof 1911, therefore, belongs the high honorof making the first important contributionto Alma Mater as an alumni class. Wil­liam Kuh, the present Secretary of 1911,who initiated the idea and who did muchto bring about its realization, made thepresentation on behalf of his class at theConvocation.The idea of class gifts after graduationis not new in alumni history. In fact, at anumber of institutions, particularly in theEast, class gifts, and especially class anni­versary .gifts, are often the basis for annualalumni donations to the institution. It isnot uncommon for the twenty-fifth or thir­tieth or forty-fifth class anniversary gift to reach as high as fifty thousand dollars; andfrequently the combined 'class gifts of anyone year attain a 1110st impressive sum.Weare, perhaps, too young as alumni toexpect any very large sums from anniver­sary classes at the present time. But theclass gift idea is both inspiring and effective,and we hope that the Class of 1911 has be­gun a movement that will result in ever­increasing class donations and the develop­ment of a feature of pronounced importancein alumni co-operation- on behalf of the Uni­versity. For, after all, in what better waycan a class "celebrate" a special anniversarythan by making some worth-while gift to theUniversity? The amount of the gift, gen­erally considered, need not necessarily belarge. The point is that the creation of thegift, whether large or small, brings classmembers together in a high spirit of com­mon purpose as nothing else can, while thegift itself represents in a most striking man­ner a renewal of class allegiance and anassurance of constructive loyalty on the partof such definite groups of alumni.1911 has appeared as the "pioneer." Allhonor to them! May the other classes "fol­low the trail"-to discover and develop atruly great field of promise of alumni con­tributions.* * *In connection with alumni contributions-whether by classes or individuals-we arepleased to call close attentionAn Alumni to a letter from Mr. Lees Bal­Endowment linger, '02, in the JanuaryFund "Letter Box." The letter em-phasizes the desirability ofestablishing an Alumni Endowment Fundfor the University. We urge upon all of8586 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEour readers a serious consideration of thatsuggestion. IWhat Mr. Ballinger urges is a generalfund, to be raised each year by the Alumni,any amount from one dollar up being grate­fully acceptable. Such a fund is distin­guished from the present Alumni Fund, es­tablished in 1919, with Association member­ships of varying degrees involved, and con­sequently requiring a minimum subscriptionof fifty dollars and having certain fixedcharges against its income. Other univer­sity alumni associations have both such spe­cial membership and such general endow­ment funds, each operating in its own wayto the benefit of the institution.The most striking and successful exampleof the type of fund that Mr. Ballinger hasin mind is the Yale Alumni Fund. Everyyear Yale alumni contribute to that fundwhatever .their circumstances at the timepermit. • The first year in which this Yalefund was started, early in the nineties, therewere only a few hundred contributors, andthe total amount raised was around $11,000in all. In recent years the annual alumnicontributions to Yale, under this fund, haveaveraged well over $25@,000. In one yearit reached half a million, with close to 10,000alumni contributors. The fund is obligatedto no special purpose. In general, a cer­tain percentage is annually set aside forpermanent Yale endowment and the re­mainder used for any Current expenditureswhich the University authorities might findnecessary. The amount annually con­tributed, of course, changes from year toyear, depending on various conditions.But the Fund is an established annual fea­ture of Yale alumni activities; it is, per­haps, the center of the general Yale alumniprogram and is by far the most successfulfund of its kind.We have reached a point in our ownalumni history when thoughtful considerationshould be given by our Alumni toward thecreation of some such flexible method ofcontributions to our University. Mr. Bal­linger's letter is indeed timely. The start,as was the case with Yale and all otheruniversities receiving such. helpful coopera­tion from alumni, will very likely be small;but the resultant development will be great -in numbers contributing, in amountsdonated annually, and in direct service tothe University. The Magazine will be gladto receive from Alumni expressions of opin­ion and suggestions on such a program.* * *At the request of a Committee on theAmerican Peace Award, a digest of thewinning peace plan, submittedAmerican under the $100,000 contest re-Peace cently established by Edward W.Plan Bok, appears in this number.The winning plan was an­nounced about January 1st. Mrs. Frank A.Vanderlip (Narcissa Cox, '03) has beenprominently active on the American PeaceAward Committee. Undoubtedly most ofour readers will have access to reading theplan in full; yet the digest herein printed,we trust, will prove helpful to them never­theless, while it will enable such other ofour readers who by some chance cannot seethe plan in full, to get its essentials.Following the prize-winning announce­ment, the American Peace Award Commit­tee is now conducting a nation-wide ballotto enable the American people to vote favor­ably or unfavorably on the plan chosen:Most of our Alumni will receive a ballotthrough such newspapers and other agenciesas are cooperating in the vote. The Com:'mittee is particularly eager to have the edu­cated men and women of the country takean interest in this voting and express anopinion by means of the ballot made avail­able. Information on the olan and a bal­lot will be sent to anyone requesting them,by addressing the Committee at 342 Madi­son Ave., New York City. We respectfullysuggest that our alumni, in common withthose of many other institutions, give thismatter their attention and take part in thevoting.* * *No-it's not "too late," by any means.The January Magazine serves as our "NewY ear card" to all of our Alumni.Happy We hope you thoroughly en­New Year! joyed the Holidays, and we takesincere pleasure in extending toall of you our Best Wishes for a Happyand Hearty New Year!ALUMNI AFFAIRSALUMNIConnecticut Alumni MeetingConn. Agr. Exp, Sta.,New Haven, Conn.December 6, 1923.On November 10 twelve former Univer­sity of Chicago students had luncheon atHotel Bishop. Though the number presentwas small, it was considered a very pleasantmeeting. Interest and loyalty are not lack­;1'}g though it is to be regretted that it seemsimpossible to get a larger attendance at ourieetings. The spirit of our president, Dr.v. E. Tucker, is shown by the fact that herefused an invitation, given by a life-longfriend, whom he seldom sees, to the Prince­ton-Harvard football game in order that hemight be present at this annual meeting.We were disappointed that, owing to Yaleduties, Pres. Angell was unable to be withus but we hope that we can arrange ournext meeting for a time when he can bepresent.For several reasons we think it better tochange the time of our annual meeting fromfall to spring, beginning March 1924, so thatthis year we shall have two meetings. Thesame officers, who have now held office forseveral years, were again re-elected: Pres­ident, Dr. G. E. Tucker, '00; Vice Presidents,Miss Mary L. Marot, '94, and Prof. W m.R.

[SinceMolly Carroll, now professor at GoucherCollege, wrote that the Club needed a partyespecially for the alumnae home from theirvarious jobs, the holiday luncheon has beenan institution in growing favor.] This yearthe roll-call of those present included MissBurton of New York City, Miss Lermit ofSt. Louis and Mrs. Essington of Streator,Ill., besides a good turn-out of Chicago folk.The guest of honor was Dr. Edgar Good­speed, who spoke admirably on "WhyTranslate the New Testament?" What hesaid fitted into Miss Greenacre's emphasisupon President Burton's convocation ad­dress, in which the service of the Universityin the fields of scholarship was the key-notefor new enthusiasm and new support."The Chicago Alumnae Club is now in aposition where its usefulness, its functionsand its burdens and responsibilities are de­veloping and expanding," said Miss Green­acre. "The Settlement Committee and theCommittee on the Collegiate Bureau of Oc­cupations have already served notice thatthey wish to increase the financial and otherparticipation of the Alumnae Club in theseactivities. Further, they recognize that theprimary obligation is to the University itself.It is not enough to maintain a renting textbook library for undergraduates, to pay forone four-quarter scholarship, or to pass thehat at a business meeting for a small sumto complete the purchase of a rare manu­script."Of our own thinking, we know that analumnae club in this city, with over 3,000women who are former University of Chi­cago students, should do something morethan just these things. 89"Dr. Burton has said that the Universitymust soon appeal to the friends of the Uni­versity and the alumni for financial supportto further the program of research and ad­ministrative development he has mapped out."But the Alumnae Club was already atwork before the president's message upona plan by which, with no undue burden toany individual, the club may increase itsfinancial support of Settlement and Colle­giate Bureau work and at the same time dosomething more for the University itself.The plan is to be presented in toto at thenext meeting of the Executive Committee."Attention is called to the following com­mittee activities:Athletic ClassesThere will be an additional registration onThursday, January 3. Bowling will com­mence January 3, and all other classes willcommence January 10. The afternoonclasses for this quarter are swimming andrythms; the evening classes are swimming,bowling and a co-educational class forAlumnae and their husbands and theirescorts in folk dancing, to be conducted byMr. Wellington Downing Jones. A chargein addition to club dues of $3.00 for oneclass and $4.00 for more than one is made.Of this amount $1.00 goes to the Universityfor locker fee and the rest is used for theexpense of music, instructors' expenses andother incidental expenses.Thursday TeasAt three o'clock every Thursday afternoontea is served in the Alumnae Room in IdaNoyes Hall. Miss Charlotte Foye is hostessin behalf of the club.Collegiate BureauA convention of all of the collegiatebureaus in the country will be held in Chi­cago during the last week in February.

There are one hundred andseventy-five alumni living. Because of therules of the Quadrangle Club the under­graduates were not present at the banquetand had a celebration at the Chi Psi lodge.A newspaper edited by them was circulatedat the banquet. Over a hundred messagesof congratulation were received fromalumni and from the twenty-one Al­phas of Chi Psi at other colleges and uni­versities.Preceding the addresses stereopticon pic­tures were shown depicting the progress ofthe university and the' fraternity. Amongthose exciting the most interest were pic­tures of Wilber M. Kelso, '96, the day heentered the university in 1893; of the threesons of R. L. ("Pat") Henry, '02, Worces­ter College, Oxford, Eng., and of Walter W.Goddard, '13, who was killed in an airplaneaccident in France in 1918. The Service Roll, of the local Alpha was shown. Thefirst picture was that of Philip Spencer, oneof those who founded Chi Psi in 1841.Lees Ballinger, '02, toastmaster, intro­duced as the speakers, for the universityDean Ernest H. Wilkins and Director A. A.Stagg, and for the fraternity John M. An­derson, Michigan, '90, of Detroit, nationalpresident, and Michael F. Gallagher, of Chi-cago. •Dean Wilkins and Director Stagg aremembers of other fraternities and the for­mer accordingly addressed his remarks tohis "cousins in Chi Psi". He first readfrom a book of poems, "Yankee Notions",by an Amherst friend who is a Chi Psi,G. S. Bryan, and then spoke on the trendof undergraduate educational methods. Mr.Stagg suggested to his hearers two needeclmovements in which they might be pioneers,one to establish an endowment fund throughyearly alumni contributions and the other. to secure more men's dormitories for theUniversity.The reunion was under the auspices ofthe Alpha Epsilon Delta of Chi Psi Educa­tional Association, whose officers are:President, Lees Ballinger, '02; Vice-Presi­dent, Wi11is H.

The only possible pathway tointernational agreement with reference to these com­plicated and difficult factors is through mutual coun�eland cooperation which the plan selected contemplates.It is therefore the unanimous opinion of the Jury,that of the 22,165 plans submitted, Plan Number1469 is "the best practicable plan by which the UnitedStates may cooperate with other nations to achieveand preserve the peace of the world."It is the unanimous hope of the Jury that the firstfruit of the mutual counsel and cooperation amongthe nations which will result from the adoption ofthe plan selected will be a general prohibition of themanufacture and sale of all materials of war.Elihu Root, Chairman,James Guthrie Harbord,Edward M. House,Ellen Fitz Pendleton,Roscoe Pound,William Allen White,Brand Whitlock.The Question to be Voted UponThe substantial provisions which consti­tute the plan selected by the Jury of Award,and upon which the vote of the Americanpeople is asked, are hereby submitted by thePolicy Committee as follows:I. Enter the Permanent CourtTha t the United States adhere to the Per­manent Court of International Justice forthe reasons and under the conditions statedby Secretary Hughes and President Hardingin February, 1923.II. Cooperate with the League of Nations,Without Fun Membership at PresentThat with cut becoming a member of theLeague of N ations as at present constituted,the United States Government should ex­tend its present cooperation with the Leagueand propose participation in the work of itsAssembly and Council under the followingconditions and reservations:Safeguarding of Monroe Doctrine1. The United States accepts the League of Na­tions as an instrument of, mutual counsel, but it will assume no obligation to interfere with political ques­tions of policy or internal administration of anyforeign state.In uniting its efforts with those of other States forthe preservation of peace and the promotion of thecommon welfare, the United States insists upon thesafeguarding of the Monroe Doctrine and does notabandon its traditional attitude concerning Americanindependence of the Old World and does not consentto submit its long established policy concerning ques­tions regarded by it as purely American to the recom­mendation or decision of other Powers.No. Military or Economic Fcrce2. The only kind of compulsion which nations canfreely engage to aI!ply to each other in the name ofPeace is that which arises from conference, frommoral judgment, from full publicity, and from thepower of public opinion.The United States will assume no obligations underArticle X in its present form, or under Article XVIin its present form in the Covenant, or in its amendedform as now proposed, unless in any particular caseCongress has authorized such action.The United States proposes that Article X and XVIbe either dropped altogether or so amended andchanged as to eliminate any suggestion of a generalagreement to use coercion for obtaining conformityto the pledges of the Covenant.No. Obligations Under Versailles 'Treaty3. The United States will accept no responsibilitiesunder the Treaty of Versailles unless in any par­ticular case Congress has authorized such action.League Open to. All N ations4. The United States Government proposes thatArticle I of the Covenant be construed and applied,or, if necessary, redrafted, so that admission to theLeague shall be assured to any self-governing Statethat wishes to join and that receives the favorablevote of two-thirds of the Assembly.Development of International Law5. A� a condition of its participation in the workand counsels of the League, the United States asksthat the Assembly and Council consent-or obtainauthority-to begin collaboration for the revision anddevelopment of international law, employing for thispurpose the aid of a commission of jurists. ThisCommission would be directed to formulate anewexisting rules of the law of natione, to reconciledivergent opinions, to consider points hitherto inade­quately provided for but vital to the maintenance ofinternational justice, and in general to define thesocial rights and duties of States. The recomrnenda­tions of the Commission would be presented fromtime to time, in proper form for consideration, to theAssembly. as to a recommending if not a law-makingbody.!J2 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE+1I_UII_.W-IIII_'IN_&lN_IIIf_IIN_tflt_IIM_II..-fttt_ttQ_IIU_"..-"I_HM_t.I._r.'_I�U"_""_"._. __ " __ II __ ' __ II __ If'_''_''+& it � Chicago Deans � ii � "They Lead. and Serve" � I: T+ .... -nl'-".- ..

Since 1889 Dr.Dodson has been on thefacultv of Rush MedicalCollege; since 1901 he hasbeen Dean of MedicalStudents at the Univer­sity of Chicago.John Milton Dodsonwas born at Berlin, \i\Tis­consin, on February 17,1859. Being the son ofa physician his choice ofa life work in medicalfields was the result ofthe happy combinationof inheritance and per­sonal desire and aptitude.After receiving his gram­mar and high school ed­ucation in the town ofhis birth, he entered theUniversity of Wisconsin.While an undergraduateat Madison he was activein one of the student lit­erary societies, and be­came a member of BetaTheta Pi fraternity. Hereceived his A. B .. atWisconsin in 1880; in 1888 the Universityconferred upon him the degree of A. M."in course".After leaving college he entered uponstudies in medicine, pursuing his studies attwo institutions; he received an M. D. de­gree at Rush Medical College in 1882, andan M. D. degree at Jefferson Medical Col­lege in 1883. In 1889 Dr. Dodson formedhis faculty connection with Rush MedicalCollege-a connection which has continuedto the present time. He began at Rush asLecturer on Anatomy and Demonstrator,carrying on this work until 1893. There­after he became, in rapid succession, Pro­fessor of Physiology, Professor of Histol­ogy, and Professor of Medicine (Pediatrics).In 1898 he was made Junior Dean at Rush,and the following year was appointed Dean.During this period Dr. Dodson also servedas Professor of Diseases of Children forseveral years at Northwestern UniversityWoman's Medical School.As noted previously, his connection with the University of Chicago began sometwenty-two years ago, in 1901, three yearsafter the affiliation of Rush Medical Collegewith the University. Since that time Pro­fessor Dodson has been on the faculty ofthe University as Pro­fessorial Lecturer onMedicine and Dean ofMedical Students. Theformation of pre-medicaland medical courses, theexceptionally high stand­ard of work maintained,and the intense studiousinterest of the medicalstudents at Chicago arelargely the result of hispersonal interest and in­spiring leadership. DeanDodson has written anumber of important andinfluential articles onMedical Education andAdministration for thevarious leading medicaljournals.Dr. Dodson's first wifedied in 1887. In 1890 hemarried Jessie P. Kas­son; his second wife diedin 1914. There are twochildren, by the secondmarriage - Kasson M.,Ph.B. '15, and Elizabeth.Dean Dodson is amember of a number of medical associations,including the American Medical Associationand the American Association of Anatomists.He is a member of the Quadrangle and Uni­versity clubs, and a Director of FlossmoorCountry Club.In commenting on the recent advances ofmedica! . science, Dean Dodson says: "Ithas been a great privilege to be associatedwith such a splendid, devoted body of menas are the members of the faculty of RushMedical College, on the west side, and atthe University. To have witnessed the mar­vellous development of Medical Educationin the United States in the last quarter cen­tury has been a rare experience. To thatprogress Rush Medical College, beginningwith the wonderful, inspiring leadership ofPresident Harper-the greatest of Univer­sity administrators-has made worth whilecontributions."Dean John Milton DodsonNEWS OF THE QUADRANGLES 93NE\vS OF THEQUADRANGLESBut few events of interest attended theholiday period on the University campus, thecompletion of the drive for the UniversitySettlement, and the holding of SettlementNight being the most important. Dean Wil­kins' announcement of a "Better Yet" cam­paign for the University are other impor­tant features.Settlement Night was held December Bth,for the seventeenth annual time, and wasnoted for the grandiose way in which thevarious events were conducted. As usual,the fete occupied all of the Reynolds groupand Mandel Hall, the hall being used for thevaudeville and the Reynolds rooms forbooths, and a dancing and exhibition pa­vilion. Immense interest was shown by thenumbers of people who were present, andwho purchased articles for the benefit of theSettlement. About a thousand five hundreddollars' were cleared from the proceeds ofthe fete alone.The annual Settlement night drive waswon by Seward Covert's team from themen's division of teams with a total of overeight hundred dollars collected, a record forany team of men, and second high recordfor both men and women. Dodd Healy'steam was second among the men, andJoe White's third. Aimee Graham'steam was high among the women's divisionof drive squads with a sum of more than fivehundred dollars collected, one hundred ofwhich was accounted for by a donation fromGalli Curci. Laura Chamberlain was secondfor the girls with just under five hundreddollars as a total. As a group, the teams,both men and women, totaled about fourthousand dollars.Elections of Settlement Night heads fornext year will occur some time within thenext month; a change in the time of holdingSettlement Night is contemplated by thepresent heads, Arthur C. Cody and HesterL. Weber, the date being moved from theearly part of December to April.During the performances of the Settle-. ment Night Vaudeville, several universitystudents were found in a state of intoxica­tion which was investigated by Dean Wil­kins. After the official inquiry into the con­ditions, three men were dismissed fromschool, one permanently, and the other, twotemporarily, with the following statementfrom the President's office:' "The admini­strative officers of the University of Chicagoregard the use of intoxicating liquor by stu­dents as physically, intellectually and mor­ally dangerous, and as contrary to the spiritof the law of the land. They therefore be-. lieve that it tends to defeat the purpose ofeducation. The' University will not tolerate The' Holidays Are Overthe use of intoxicants by its students in theterritory subject to its government and willexert its influence to discourage su'ch use ofthem elsewhere."In addition to the three men who weredismissed, six others had lesser penalties in­flicted.The "Better Yet" campaign has been in­stituted by Dean Wilkins, to improve, as faras possible, every institution or conditionaffecting .th� undergraduate. Preliminarily,Dean Wilkins had a circular letter sentamong all Seniors now in attendance at theUniversity, asking that they submit to him,ill letter, any suggestions they might have re­lating to university conditions. In return,he received some two hundred answers, re­lating to every imaginable subject. Of thetwo hundred suggestions received, the num­ber was reduced to thirty, which will beactively investigated by special committees,appointed among the faculty and undergrad­uates by a personnel committee headed bythe dean. Each of these thirty committeeswill investigate the practicality of its sug­gestion, and will report whether or not itsadoption is feasible. In adopting the sug­gestions as reported by the committee, DeanWilkins hopes to make the campus "BetterYet" for the undergraduate.The failure of Friar McCollister, presidentof the Junior class on the campus, to returnto the campus for the winter quarter, re­sulted in the appointment of Elsa Allison,his vice president, to his place by the under­graduate Council. This is the first time inthe history of the University that a womanhas held the position of class president.C V. Wisner; Jr., '26.94 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEDespite the fact thatthe Purdue Boilermak­ers sent the Maroonteam down to defeat bya 35-24 score in theBig Ten basketballopener, January 5, pros­pects for a successfulyear in the cage sportremain brighter than inany recent year. TheBoilermakers w ereplayed on their ownfloor at LaFayette andthe Maroons will havean opportunity to stagea comeback when theymeet them again March6 at Bartlett gymna­sium.Two days before thePurdue game, on Jan.3, Coach Norgren's mentook the Yale basket­ball squad, Eastern In­tercollegiate champions,into camp by a 24-21count. The victory wasCampbell Dick- much more decisiveson, '24, than the score indi-Basketball captain cates. Taking the leadwithin five minutes ofthe start of the game, a substantial lead waspiled up which at one time amounted totwelve points. With the score 24-12 aboutthe middle of the second half and the gameapparently on ice, Coach Norgren withdrewthree 'Of his regulars and sent in Abbott,Barta and Robert Howell. The Yale men,on the alert for some sort of a break, tookadvantage of the weakened Maroon teamand ran up seven points in less than threeminutes. At this juncture the Maroon men­tor returned his regulars: to the game andstopped the rally with one more Yale bas­ket, made simultaneously with the final gun.The game, though hard fought, and oneof the stiffest contests played in Bartlett forseveral years, was cleanly played through­out, both teams showing exceUent sports­rnanship under difficult conditions. The Ma­roons won largely on the superiority oftheir defensive playing, the Yale men hav­ing a slight advantage in shooting, espe­cially in the matter of long shots, whereinNorgren's men were rather unsuccessful.Alyea, a sophomore, was the only newman to play during the larger part of thegame, playing both at center and at for­ward. He is tall and unusually clever at (k,dging and promises to be a real asset tothe team both this and the two succeedingyears. Captain Campbell Dickson, 'who wasinjured in the Purdue football game lastfall, has still to play his first full game thisseason, although he has played part time inseveral contests. In the Yale contest heW:lS inserted at the 'Opening of the secondhalf and was responsible for six of Chica­go's points. In the Purdue battle he wentin a, the same time and again made threefield baskets. Since basket shooting is theweakest part of the Maroon . offense, hispresence, especially when he starts playingthe entire game, promises to be a strongfactor in the Varsity attack. With the ad­vent of Alyea at center and with Dicksonand Srnidl, ex-center, at the forward posi­tions, Harrison Barnes, who was the uni­versal choice for one of the all-conferenceforward positions last . season, has beenmoved to guard where he will play a run­ning game. This 'will mean that the Ma­roons will have four 'Of their five menthrowing baskets and will be no little ad­vantage in dose contests. In the collegiatepractice games which were played prior tothe Yale contest, the locals broke even, win­ning handily from the Michigan Agricul­tural college and losing to De Pauw 24to 18.With the opening of the winter quarter,indoor trackmen have gotten under way andare training daily in Bartlett gymnasium.Although the chances for a conference titlein this line are not very great, the trackteam should finish fairly high in the confer­ence meet next spring. Clifton M. Utley, '25.Missouri Kindly Compliments ChicagoThe Missouri Alumnus, in commenting onthe football game to be played with Chicagonext season on October 4, quotes Mr. C. L.Brewer, director of athletics. at the U niver-sity of Missouri, as follows: '."There is probably no higher class teamin the country. To get on their schedulerepresents an achievement of the first mag­nitude. Chicago does not schedule gameswith everybody. They invite teams to meetthem and these may be assured that theyare among the elite, or Chicago would nottrouble with them."The Chicago game will mean much toMissouri. It will give the Missouri alumniin and near Chicago a chance to see theirteam, . and represents Missouri's debut intothe 'big league,' with a good chance of na­tional recognition should our showingagainst Stagg's team be a good one."THE LETTER BOX 95rQ--·-ol��I·��:··�:;;::-;:---'�-�·l�dHII.IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII"llIl11ll1l1l11l11l1l11l11ll1l1l11l11l11ll1l11ll1ll11l11ll11ll1l1l11l1l1l11lll1ll1l1ll1l1nllllllnnnlnnnlllllUtllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllUllIIlIIlIlIlIlIlIIlIlIUlI1II1II11111111UIIIIIIIIIIIHlIIIIIIUllUUftilUllIIfIIIIIIlllllUrges Annual Alumni Contributions toUniversityEvanston, Illinois.December �, 1923.Dear Mr. Pierrot:At the twenty-fifth anniversary dinner ofChi Psi at the University of Chicago, Mr.Stagg, as a guest, and as one of the speak­ers made an earnest plea for annual contn­butions to the University on the part of itsalumni. He spoke of the Alumni Endow­ment Fund for Yale University and the factthat the yearly contributions to this Fundare now very large because most of thealumni are giving something .each ye�r.Believing that the Alumni Council andthe University of Chicago Magazine areinterested in furthering this thought, theChicago Chapter .of Chi Psi and its alumnihave asked me to write you with the ear­nest request that concrete action be taken,at as early a date as practicable, to bringabout an Alumni Endowment Fund to whichall alumni and alumnae may make annualcontributions as they may desire.There is little doubt that, in a very fewyears, the annual contrib�tions to such aFund would be substantial, But of fargreater importance is the fact that alumniand alumnae would welcome such an oppor­tutnity to give regularly to their Universitywhich has done so much for them, and forwhich most of us have done so little.Yours sincerely,Lees Ballinger, '02."Remember the Time When --"Chicago, Illinois,November 26, 1923.Alumni Association,University of Chicago.Dear Sirs:I would like to learn the whereabouts ofMr. Joe Thomas=-Class of 1912, I believe.The story goes as follows:.The writer and Mr. Thomas were bunkiesand pals together in service in the ?�c�)lldEngineers, Company �, Second Division,Thomas was wounded in the knees on thefirst front we were on.

I get about the houseand take a little exercise on the large porchof my residence, and go out during suitableweather in my automobile. I am thankfulto Almighty God for the many blessingswhich I have enjoyed through the pasteighty years and make no complaint if Ican not run with 'you boys now on the ath­letic field.The University Magazine keeps me in­formed regarding many of the activities ofthe dear old Alma Mater.

I hope verymuch that things go well and that theregular Settlement funds are coming in.You must be in the thick of the football'season and preparations for SettlementNight and all the other joys of the season.Good luck in them all tWe have seen a number of people fromhome: the Baskervills, Robertsons, Mrs.Taft, Miss Carter, and a considerable num­ber of students, and enjoyed each meeting.My work at the Union together with mystudies and social duties keep me as busyas at home, but most of it is enjoyable andall interesting.Paris is a lively, beautiful city, full ofinterest. We started to two museums yes­terday, found them closed, but had suchan interesting time looking up the 16th and17th century palaces-now used as factoriesand workshops-in that neighborhood, thatour "expedition" was a great success. Peo­ple seem busy and prosperous, though theprofessional classes are hard hit by theprices, as at home, and there is no tellingwhat will happen in ten years. My regardsto you all.Yours cordially,Algernon Coleman. Urges Broadcasting Station for theUniversityChicago, Ill.Alumni Secretary,University of Chicago.Dear Sir:Radio, in my estimation, is one of thegreatest inventions in history. Within thetwo years of actual and practical broadcast­ing, the radio "fans" throughout America andCanada are being furnished with lectures,concerts, speeches, news items of all sort;and, in fact, with a gist of almost everything. that may be considered of current and spe­cial interest.As a member of the Alumni of the Uni­versity of Chicago, and as one of those par­ticularly interested in the science of radio,it seems to me that our Alma Mater mightdo well to consider the advisability of theestablishment of a broadcasting radiophonestation. There are lectures, concerts, dra­mas, and all sorts of occasions at the Uni­versity of Chicago from which the publicmight receive great benefit. The upliftingtendencies of these various entertainmentsare certainly beneficial to all who have theopportunity to hear them. More than afew of the universities and colleges through­out the country have established broadcast­ing stations; and each of these stations isfurnishing programs which are of inestima­ble value to the radio public.A great many people still consider radioa sort of plaything rather than an actual andvaluable utility. This consideration' is en­tirely erroneous; for, more rapidly than thepublic can realize, radio is becoming one ofthe most effective entertaining and educatingutilities that has ever existed in the world.Let us try to imagine the large number ofpeople listening in, all over the country, toone given period of broadcasting from oneindividual station. To visualize, if possible,the magnitude of radio, let us multiply thenumber of listeners to one station by thenumber of stations broadcasting, say, fromseven P. M. to ten P. M. on a given date.If it were possible to ascertain the exactnumber of listeners within these hours on agiven date, we would be utterly astoundedat the inevitable influence of the radio uponthe public as a whole.Radio is here to stay. It is not a passingfad whose influence and existence may fadewith the present generation. It is but amatter of time and scientific energy till theave rage listener, with the ordinary receiving­set, will be able to hear stations in everysection of the world. In the contributionof education and cultural material to thepublic at large the University could take avery important part. I should like to see abroadcasting station established at Chicago.With best wishes for your year of successI am Sincerely yours, 'George Rex Clarke, '08.THE LETTER BOXFoundation Work for the Chinese RepublicThe National CommitteeYoung Men's Christian Associations ofChina20 Museum Road, Shanghai,In twenty years in China nothing has. im­pressed me more than the mass. educationalmovement now developing. This work be­gan on the battle fields of France among t�eChinese labor corps so helpful to Brrtain,France and the allies. Serving t�e corp�sas "Y" secretaries were my associates, G.H. Cole' and James Y. C. Yen. Cole hadthe technique of the visual method and"Jimmie Y en," a Yale graduate, editor ofThe Overseas Magazlne, there caught. t1�evision of what the educating of China smasses would mean for China, for democ-racy and the world...Since those days in France J Im�ll!e Yen,as a secretary of the "Y" educational de­partment, has conducted a 100�g mvestigatron111 collaboration WIth South Eastern Univer­sity (Nanking), and selected a remarkablyeffective vocabulary of one thousand char­acters. There has been developed a serresof very effective, yet economical text books(2c gold a copy). .Then came the first test in the far lil­terior provincial capital, Changsha. Thelocal "Y" organized a general committee ofseventy. Then a great mass meeting, Thegovernor of the province is 111 the chair.The slogan is, "Changsha 100 per cent lt� ..erate." Newspapers bombard the publicand 26 000 dodgers are distributed. Twolarge �ass meetings of shop masters areheld. .Student recruiters canvass seventy­five districts of the city. There are morestudents than can be received. Normalschool trained teachers, 120 in number, startthe classes.. Four months pass. Of 1,420 students reg­istered 1,200 attend to the last .day. and 967successfully pass the final exarnmatrons. Atthe graduating exercises the governor pr�­sents certificates. The oldest student ISforty-two years the youngest six. Theyrepresent fifty-five different trades. Thegovernor announces the beginning of. thenext term, and so Changsha, from a nation­ally initiated campaign, "a blossom fromFlanders Field," takes up as <l: local re­sponsibility making her masses hterate.Other cities hear the good news: Han­kow Peking, Foochow, etc. They sendurge�t requests for campaigns.. Chefoo, anorthern secondary manufacturing seaport,is chosen for the next experiment. InApril 192'3 it adopts the slogan, "Chefooliterate in' five years!" The whole town.boosts and on the opening day 15,000 lineup for the parade. .In August Madam Hsiung, the wife ofthe ex-premier, distributes diplomas to 1,100men and boys and 400 women and girls,and announces the coming meeting of theNational Mass Education Convention.,In the meantime a significant experiment 97is being conducted in the southern town ofKashing. It is born of the desperate reali­zation that China has more than 300 millionilliterates and that larger numbers of stu ....dents must be handled per teacher. Ascheme of visual instruction is worked out.A very expert teacher is assigned a classof 250 in one room. Lights go out! Thestereopticon flashes on the screen, coloredpictures, written sentences, and enormouslymagnified individual characters. The teacherdirects and then each section of ten reviewsunder its own student leader, again thegroup as a whole. A powerful subconsciousaction is induced by: means of many con­tacts: eyes see the graphic material, earshear the voice of the teacher, throats repeat,minds grasp meanings. The hand writesand 250 other voices pound on the eardrumsin unison. The results are most amazing.Students eat, dream and sleep Chinese char­acters. They come through ram, flood andmud, and will not be denied. Two suchclasses are conducted. At the end of theterm we are forced to the conclusion thatnot only can large numbers, 200 to 300, behandled by one teacher, but that the workcan be carried forward on this quantitybasis with greater speed and· with highergrade results than the individual small class.Then came the formation of the NationalAssociation for the Promotion of the Edu­cation of the Masses. Enquiries are com­ing from many parts of the country. Manydifferent centers plan campaigns on theirown initiative. Now is to be developed thesimple practical, cultural educational sys­tem based upon the 1,000 characters, andone thousand more in the "Commoner'sDictionary." Some books are "The Com­moners Geography," "The Commoners Let­ters," The Commoners Accounting," "TheCommoners Bible," etc. News comesthrough the "Commoners Weekly." Schoolsare providing scholarships. Nationally prom­inent people are dedicating their lives to theenterprise. A great light begins to shine inAsia. I believe it will reach iri beneficientand healing rays around a dark and needyworld.Most cordially,C. H. Robertson (ex-Grad.)September, 1923.(Note: This interesting letter was sent to Pro­fessor J.

Professor Tuftswill continue his service as dean and as suchwill take a leading part developing the Uni­versity's enlarging educational program.Mr. Arnett will have supervision of theinstitution's financial affairs and will per­form the duties of Business Manager Wal­lace Heckman upon the latter's retirementnext June. The appointment of Mr. Arnettis regarded as a significant departure inuniversity administration, as in connectionwith it it is hoped to bring about a closerco-ordination between the educational andthe business administration.Mr. Arnett, a graduate of the Universityin the class of 1898, and for twenty years theUniversity Auditor, is a recognized author­ity on college finance and is the author ofa widely used volume on that 'Subject.Congregational Seminary in Affiliation withThe UniversityIn the conduct of its Divinity School theUniversity of Chicago has followed to agreater extent than in any other field ofwork the policy of associating with itself byaffiliation schools originally founded inde­pendently of the University. As a resultof this policy it is likely to be the case thatin a few years there will be grouped aboutthe University a number of schools, eachhoused in its own building, but intimatelyrelated to the University.The largest of these theological schoolsis the Congregational Theological Seminary,founded in 1855 on the West Side of Chi­cago, and affiliated with the University in1915. The recent laying of the cornerstone'of the new and beautiful group of buildings,which is to extend on 58th Street fromWoodlawn Avenue to University Avenue,is suggestive of what may happen in com­ing days, not only in theology but in otherfields of learning.Already the Ryder (Universalist) Divinity- House has its own group of buildings onthe Midway, and the Disciples' DivinityHouse will soon have completed its beautifulnew chapel and community house at 57thStreet and University Avenue. New Member of Board of TrusteesAnnouncement was made at the recentConvocation of the election of Mr. RobertP. Lamont, of Lake Forest, president of theAmerican Steel Foundries Company, as amember of the University Board of Trustees.Mr. Lamont, who is a graduate of the Uni­versity of Michigan, was one of theengineers connected with the World's Co­lumbian Exposition, is a member of theEpiscopal Church and of many prominentclubs, and a director of the First NationalBank, Chicago, and of other large corpora­tions.The other new Trustees elected duringthis quarter are Mr. Charles F. Axelson, '03,and Mr. Edward L. Ryerson, Jr., a graduateof the Sheffield Scientific School of YaleUniversity, as announced in our Novembernumber.President Emeritus Judson Reelected Chair­man of American University UnionPresiden t Emeritus Judson has been re­elected chairman of the trustees of theAmerican University Union in Europe.Among the new members of the adminis­trative board are President A.

The total of American studentsin France, representing forty-one states' andthe District 'of Columbia, was 1,400.Lowell Institute Lectures by . ProfessorManlyProfessor John Matthews. Manly, Head ofthe Department of English, is. to deliver theLowell Institute Lectures in Boston duringthe last week of January and the first weekof February, 1924. His subject for the seriesof lectures is "Some New Light on Chau­cer." Some of the lectures will be illus­trated with hand-colored slides showing theilluminated pages of the Ellesmere Manu­script. This manuscript, now in the Hunt­ington Library, is among the choicest man­uscripts preserved from the Middle Englishperiod. Hitherto, the illuminated pages ofthe manuscript have been accessible to onlya few scholars.UNIVERSITY NOTES-I9II CLASS GIFTClass of 1911 Presents MSS to UniversityAt the Winter Convocation of the Uni­versity, held in Mandel Hall on December18th, a feature of the program was the pres­entation of three rare manuscripts to theUniversity by the Class of 1911. This isthe first presentation of a gift to the U ni­versity made by an alumni class. .The threemanuscripts presented are con tamed 111 asingle volume and were recommended to the1911 Committee by Professor Manly of the. Department of English. They are describedin detail in the presentation address madeby William Kuh, Chairman of the Commit­tee on behalf of 1911. President Burton,made the address of acceptance. In pre­senting the gift, Mr. Kuh said:"Mr. President:"I deem it a very great privilege to beable to present to you.on behalf of the. grad­uating class of 1911 of the University ofChicago these volumes for the UniversityLibraries. The first is a manuscript of thefifteenth century, containing three workswritten in England in the fourteenth cen­tury. The first work, said to have beenwritten in 1377 by a Franciscan friar is en­titled ((Speculum HU111,ane Salvationis," andis of considerable interest as the probablesource of several pieces in Middle English.The second work in the volume is calledthe "M anuale Sacerdotis" and is attributedto John, Prior of the Abbey of Lilleshull inShropshire. It dates from somewhere be­tween 1309 and 1329. The work is :t veryrare one, and is particularly interesting be­cause it throws considerable light upon thereligious life of the Middle Ages, and par­ticularly upon the duties of parish priestsof the time and upon their relations withtheir parishioners. As few works of thischaracter are available today the value ofthe material which this volume contains isconsiderable. The third work entitled "TheProphesy of John of Brydlyngton," is a 'po­litical poem in Latin hexameters, written inall probability by an official of the house­hold of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancasterin the latter part of the fourteenth century.The volume has passed through many handsand contains' fhe names of seven of its pre­vious owners."The second volume of the gift is not anoriginal manuscript but an exact photo­graphic facsimile of one of the two earliestmanuscripts of Dante's "Dvuina Comme­dia." Two of the manuscripts of this PQ�m,known as the Landiano and the Chigi areearlier and more important for the text thanany of the others. A facsimile of the for­mer,. and earlier, manuscript is the one nowpresented. The University library alreadyowns a. copy of the Chigi manuscript, butuntil now has been unable to obtain one ofthe Landiano. The two together should beof great service to students of Italian lit­erature. 99"The volumes constitute, I believe, the firstdirect contribution of an Alumni Class ofthe University to the educational resourcesof Alma Mater. The Class of 1911 israther proud that it is the first to offermaterial of this kind to the University, andhopes that the gift will be only the first ofseveral which the class may make as timegoes on. It hopes also that this gift maylead other groups of students and alumnito assist the University by placing at itsdisposal research material such as is nowpresented."At the time of its graduation from theUniversity, the Class of 1911 presented toAlma Mater the bronze tablet of the Uni­versity Coat of Arms which is set in thefloor under Mitchell Tower. It is the fondhope of .1911 that this second gift may insome small way assist the University in therealization of its aim as expressed in theCoat-of-Arms:"Crescat scientia; vita excolatur."Work of an American Orientalist as Seenby a Great AstronomerIn writing about the work of Director JamesHenry Breasted, of .the Oriental Institute of theUniversity, in Scribner's Magazine for October,Dr. George Ellery Hale, Director of the MountWilson Observatory, California, refers to Dr.Breasted's History of Egypt as based on thefive large volumes of Breasted's Ancient Rec­ords, comprising the original Egyptian sources,which are published by the University ofChicago Press.Director Hale calls the Oriental Instituteof the University of Chicago a true researchlaboratory for the investigation of the careerof early man in the Near East, and says thatDr. Breasted's long experience and familiar­ity with conditions in Egypt and his recentexploratory expedition to Mesopotamia andSyria mark him as the ablest of leaders forsuch an enterprise.In concluding his article Dr. Hale says:"It is fortunate that the University of Chi­cago, aided by Mr. John D. Rockefeller, Jr.,has established the Oriental Institute, whereit is to be hoped that increasing means willsoon provide, under Dr. Breasted's generaldirection, for the rapid assembly, by skilledassociates, of the great body of materialwhich he is so competent to interpret andto weave into a history of early civilization,"Fourth Annual Dinner to Faculties by the. TrusteesWhat is thought to be a unique feature inthe history of educational institutions is theannual dinner given at the University ofChicago in honor of the members of theFaculties by the Board of Trustees. Thisyear the dinner, given in Ida Noyes Hall onDecember 13, had an attendance of aboutthree hundred.100 THE UNiVERSiTY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEMr. Harold H.

The authors rely principally onAmerican material, using the comparativepoint of view. Mr. Atkins' work was givenlargely to the parts of the book devotedto unemployment, accidents, disease, andthe laws controlling strikes, boycotts, wages,hours and shop conditions.Professor Atkins was a member of theDepartment of Economics in the Univer­sity since 1915, and was coach- of the de­bating teams.

D., '08,' AddressesLaw School Association Luncheon'State Senator Thurlow G. Essington,J. D., "08, of Streator, candidate for Gov­ernor of Illinois, was the guest of honorat the Law School luncheon December 18,1923, at the Morrison Hotel. Sixty-threepersons were present, breaking all recordsfor a noon meeting.Professor Floyd R. Mechem, who- was onthe faculty of the Law School when Sen­ator Essington was a student, introducedhim to the meeting. He said he regardedEssington as one of his boys, and that inLaw School he looked on Essington as aman of "intellectual rig ht-rnindedness." Thesenator's career, both as a practitioner andin public office, has been a demonstrationof that quality.The meeting was not intended for politi­cal effect, but as a testimonial of good willby the Association to a fellow-member. Ofcourse, the political situation could not beentirely suppressed, and in the course of histalk Senator Essington gave a short sketchof the forces and influences which madehim an active candidate for Governor.Several meetings of both announced andpotential candidates for that office wereheld in an effort to find the most desirableman to oppose Governor Small in the pri­mary next April. All candidates agreed toeliminate themselves and abide by the de­cision when reached. At the last conferenceill Chicago Senator Essington's representa­tives withdrew his name after the first bal­lot at his request and voted for anotherman on ten straight ballots. The senti­ment at last swung around to Essington,but the announcement that he was selectedcame as a surprise to him.He did 110t go into the issues of his cam­paign in detail, but mentioned the princi­pal reasons that caused the opposition to thepresent governor to unite. The attitude ofthe various candidates for Governor in se­lecting one of their number and eliminat­ing themselves is without a precedent inIllinois.To say that Senator Essington made agood impression is a mild statement. Hisplain speech and avoidanace of effect wereevidences of sincerity and courage, plusability and power.Of the faculty who were in the LawSchool in his day, there remain Dean Hall,Professors Mechem, Freund and Bigelow.Dean Hall was out of the city.

HerrickVice-President, Brennan Packing Co.President of Institute of American Meat PackersOn February 24, 1922, Thomas E. Wil­son, who was then president of the Instituteof American Meat Packers, proposed anextensive development to plan the executivecommittee of the packers' association. Heproposed that the Institute of AmericanMeat Packers, which is the trade and re­search association of the packing industry,should become an organization of a com­bined educational institution, research insti­tute, trade association and industrial mu­seum. The plan became known as theInstitute Plan_The executive committee at its nextmeeting, April, 1922" directed that the plannow known as the Institute' Plan be trans­mitted to the entire membership of the as­sociation and that the commission and com­mittees provided by the Plan be appointedand called into action. The Institute PlanCommission and committees began work inJune, 192'2.,At a general session of the Institute inconvention October, 1922, the Institute PlanCommission, after having heard previouslythe recommendations of Its several commit­tees, proposed to the Convention a reportrecommending that the Institute Plan beadopted: The recommendations of the Com­mission were adopted by unanimous vote.In the report of the Commission to theInstitute, Mr. Thomas E. Wilson, Chairmanof the Institute Plan Commission, stated theobjects of the Plan as follows:1. As an educ;ational institution it should: a. Provide broad. but specialized colle­giate education for young men intending toenter the packing industry, just as the Colo­rado School of Mines provides such trainingfor young men expecting to begin theirwork in the mining industry.b. Furnish special training to interme­diate sub executives . (prospective depart­mental heads) of promise already engagedin the industry.c. Conduct a continuation school forplant employes and junior office help.2. As a research institution it should:a. Develop and systematize' a body ofscientific and practical data for the serviceof the whole industry.b. Carryon agreed researches into newscientific and, practical problems common toall packers, without infringing on researchalong individual lines being done by specificcompanies.c. Conduct experiments on the extensionof products and reclamation of materials(except where such experiments would in­fringe on original work done by some indi­vidual company).Thomas E. Wilson. President of Wilson & CompanyChairman of Institute Plan Commissiond. Collate and disseminate informationconcerning discoveries and developmentshaving relation to the packing industry,without invading material, developed by par­ticular companies.e. Conduct merchandising surveys. andcommercial research work.f. Discover waste and means of eliminat­ing it.THE INSTITUTE OF AMERICAN MEAT PACKERSg. Test .materials and equipment offeredto. the industry.3. As a trade association it should con­tinue to do what the Institute is now doingin this direction.4. As an industrial museum it should pro­.vide space for permanent exhibits of modelsshowing modern packing-house operations,specimens, and processes; and it shouldrent out space for exhibits of materials ofindustrial value, and for a permanent exhibitof packing-house machinery and supplies­a sort of scientific museum and centralizedmarket place, a gigantic permanent showwindow, conveniently located (being at Chi­cago), where packers from all parts of thecountry may come and view samples beforemaking purchases and installations.These recommendations included a provi­sion that the Institute raise by volunteersubscription $150,000 to be spent on educa­tional and research activities with the guid­ance of the Institute Plan Commission.As an introductory gesture, to call theattention of those engaged in the AmericanPacking industry to the educational plansof the Institute Plan; arrangements weremade in the Spring, 1923, for a series ofeight lectures giving a perspective surveyof the meat industry, under the joint auspi­ces of the School of Commerce and Admin­istration and the Institute Plan Commis­sion. The lectures were highly successful.There seemed to be a real live interest insuch a venture.While the lectures were in progress, theInstitute of American Meat Packers ap­pointed Willard E. Hotchkiss director ofthe Bureau of Industrial Education, W. W.Woods vice-president in charge of the De­partment of Education and Research, andOscar G. Meyer chairman of the Commit­tee on Educational Plans, The questionwas raised during the course of the lectureswhether the University of Chicago mightnot cooperate with the institute of Ameri­can Meat Packers in working out the edu­cational provisions of the Institute Plan.It seemed highly appropriate that the re­sources of a great university and a greatindustry should be combined in carrying on.such an educational .enterprise.Representatives of the University and ofthe Institute Plan Commission and itsCommittee on Educational Plans met anddiscussed the situation. Certain very def­inite plans which were reported to the Boardof Trustees of the University at their June,1923, meeting were laid.On July 9, 1923, President Burton pre­sented the Institute's proposal, with a fa­vorable recommendation, to the Board ofTrustees. The Board of Trustees approvedthe President's recommendation and gaveauthority for undertaking the work pro­posed. On September 18 the Institute ofAmerican Meat Packers, in convention atAtlantic City, New Jersey, ratified the nego­tiations with the University and authorized 103W. W. Woods, Vice-PresidentIn charge of New Packers Institutethe undertaking. . . .At the beginning of thIS academic year(October, 1923) a joint administrative com­mittee, consisti�g of seven representativesfrom the University and four from the In­stitute of American Meat Packers, was ap­pointed. Activities administered under thisjoint cooperation, in accordance with theInstitute plan, should:1. Further research in the physical sci­ences and in economics and business as ap­plied in the packing industry.2. Provide in evening courses oral in­struction designed primarily for men en­gaged in the industry in Chicago.3. Provide in correspondence courses in­struction available to men in industry else­where.4. Provide in day courses a four-year cur­riculum, with emphasis on the natural sci­ences and on business management, designedprimarily for men intending to enter thepacking industry. .Evening instruction began October 1,1923; correspondence instruction is to beginJanuary 1, 1924, and a four-year curriculumof day courses on October 1, 1924.The research phases of the plan are toserve two purposes: (1) the organization ofmaterial for instructional uses in direct con­nection with the evening courses, corre­spondence courses and day courses; (2) theextension of the boundaries of knowledgewith respect to the sciences applied in themeat-packing industry. Some of the sub­jects of research are to fall within the fieldof physical and biological science; othersin the field of economics and business. Alimited number of research fellowships areto be provided in order to supplement theindividual and joint efforts of research menin the Institute and in the University.(Continued on page 110)104 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE+ __ I'-"_.,,_ •• _ •• _ ..

The Com­monwealth Fund is the youngest of thegreat foundations. It has undertaken anexperiment in the support of research whichis much more significant than appears fromthe various individual grants which havebeen mentioned.r'The problem of supporting research ade­quately is one of providing the opportunityfor investigators to carry on their workwithout destroying the institutional organ­ization which trains the successors forresearch men of the older generation. Uni­versities are sometimes embarrassed in sup­porting research because the funds whichthey have are given them primarily for thepurpose of providing instruction. If theyallow a given instructor to reduce his pro­gram in order that he may spend his timein the library or the laboratory carrying onoriginal investigations, they lay themselvesopen. to the criticism of failing in their chieffunction, which is teaching. On the otherhand, if foundations or other organizationsinterested in research withdraw the leadinginvestigators from university connectionsand give them all of their time for carryingon the investigations which will increaseknowledge, they tend to cut off the supplyof future investigators and they limit theactivities of the investigators themselvesbecause they take them away from the stim­ulus which always comes from contact withstudents.The Commonwealth Fund, with these dif­ficulties in mind, organized a committeemade up of a number of men who had dis­tinguished themselves in educational re­search and gave to this committee controlof $100,000 a year for a period of five years.The committee receives proposals from allparts of the country with regard to prob­lems in the educational field which oughtto be investigated and for which the authorsof the proposals feel that they have devisedadequate methods of investigation. Theseproposals are passed on by the educationalresearch committee and certain of them areselected. A budget is agreed upon by thecommittee and the investigator who proposesthe research. A definite period of time isalso agreed upon in which the report willbe submitted. The investigator is left freein this way to continue his work at the in­stitution with which he is connected. Hemay take as long or as short a leave ofabsence as he finds it advantageous to ar- range with his institution. He may utilizea part of his budget for his own salary, forthe purchase of apparatus, or for the em­ployment of assistance. In some cases thenature of the investigation is such that aportion of the budget is employed for trav­eling expenses. The subvention gives theworker a degree of freedom that he couldnot have under ordinary conditions and atthe same time leaves his regular institu­tional connections undisturbed. In fact, thebudget is always administered through theinstitution rather than through the individualinvestigator.The result of this type of organizationhas been very stimulating. Some fifteen in­stitutions have participated in the subven­tions which have been granted by the com­mittee during the past three years, and aconsiderable quantity of valuable scientificmaterial has already been published as aresult of the grants which have been dis-tributed. .In addition to such specific subventionsas have been described, the committee hasorganized in its own membership severalcommittees which are actively engaged inpromoting special work in the fields forwhich they were appointed.There is a committee on social studies.This committee was appointed because itwas clearly recognized that the schools ofthe country need more material with whichto train high-school and elementary-schoolpupils regarding the institutions of thiscountry and in the obligations of citizen­ship. The social studies committee hasbeen able to bring together in a number ofconferences the leading representatives ofthose school subjects which are directly re­lated to its problem. As the result of theseconferences a pronouncement has been pre­pared and published which describes thefunction of each of the school subjects incontributing to a knowledge of citizenshipand to preparation for the general partici­pation of each individual member of thecommunity in the duties of citizenship. Thecommittee is still active and will undoubt­edly promote definite and detailed contri­butions to the introduction of social studiesinto the schoo1.A second committee is known as the com­mittee on the reorganization of adminis­trative units. This committee is devotingitself to a series of investigations with re­gard to the activities of various grades inthe ele:mentary school, of subdivisions ofthe high. school, and of colleges and pro­fessional schools. Its main purpose is toTHE COMMONWEALTH FUNDbring together a body of facts which willexhibit the present practices at these dif­ferent levels of educational activity, andwill thus lay the foundation for a consid­eration of those changes which may be found.to be desirable in order to standardize therelations between different educational in­stitutions and promote the better selectionof materials for instruction in each of them.For example, the best body of materialto be used in the conduct of a professionalcourse is being studied in detail by Profes­sor Charters of the University of Pittsburgh.He is cooperating with the national organ­ization representing schools of pharmacy.An analysis is being made of the require­ments of trained pharmacists in actualbusiness. The results of this analysis willbe presented to the national society andwill be of assistance in reconstructing theelaborate syllabus which is now publishedby that society and is used as the basis ofthe courses in pharmacy in the professionalschools of the country.A second investigation which will illus­trate the scope of the committee's work wascarried on by Mr. J. M. Glass of the Penn­sylvania State Department of Education.Mr. Glass visited fourteen cities and secureddetailed information with regard to the timedevoted to various topics of instruction inthe elementary-school curriculum. He se­cured from teachers in these cities an exactstatement of the point in the elementaryschool where certain topics were treated ineach of the leading subjects of instructionand he also secured information with re­gard to the exact number of minutes de­voted to these topics. His findings will bepublished in the form of a monograph.They make it perfectly clear that there isat the present time unlimited diversity ofviews with regard to all of the subjects ofelementary education. Very striking differ­ences appear in all of the fundamental sub­jects. It was found that the difference infifth grades in various cities as to the amountof time to be devoted to the fundamentalsin arithmetic amounted to 3,000 minutes ina year. Other examples of the same typeappear in Mr. Glass' 'results. In view ofthese striking variations the committee hasundertaken to bring together in monographform a summary of all of the recent scien­tific investigations which have been madein the various fields of instruction in theelementary schools.A third inquiry made under the directionof the special committee on reroganizationof administrative units related to -the artscollege. Dean Kelly, formerly of the Uni­versity of Kansas and now of the Universityof Minnesota, visited a number of collegesand universities in different parts of thecountry and through consultations withdeans and professors made a study of thevarious types of organizations exhibited inthese different institutions and of' the aims 105wh�c.h seemed to the officers of the collegeslegitimate In guiding their activities. Dear,Kelly came to the conclusion that a funda­mental distinction must ultimately be drawnbetween the courses in which a student spe­cializes and those which he takes for pur­poses of general training. His report willalso be pubhshed shortly and will undoubt­edly serve as a stimulating basis for thediscussion. of college problems.The foregoing examples of the work ofthe Commonwealth Education Committeecould be supplemented by references toother lines of investigation. The Common­wealth Fund is devoting itself through otheragencies also to investigations of problemsclosely related to the work of schools. Ithas. an active committee engaged in at­tackmg the problem of delinquency in chil­dren and through this committee has setup a number of experimental clinics in dif­ferent cities which aim to discover thecauses of delinquency and remove themthrough school training.School of Education NotesThe annual meeting of the Departmentof Superintendence of the National Educa­tion Association will be held in Chicago dur­ing February and the CHICf\GO DINNERin connection with that meeting will be heldon the evening of Wednesday, February 27,1924, at the Auditorium Hotel.

Rosenberger(The University of Chicago Press)An excellent example of old world tradi­tion, persistently preserved in a new envir­onrnent is furnished by the PennsylvaniaGermar;s. These people have subjectedthemselves to the molding force of inheritedsocial forms. Instances of just this sort oftenacious isolation and invariability are notplentiful in America, and for that reason thePennsylvania Germans offer a fruitful andinteresting field for study. Moreover, e:renthis type is passing, and is gradually beinglost in the formless and traditionless societyor America.Mr. Rosenberger fixes the genre so defi­nitely and so concretely, that, were the­Pennsylvania Germans completely to losetheir individuality in American life, theirpeculiar flavor would still be r�tained. Fr?mhis pages the type emerges WIth a defill1�e­ness which is astonishing when one corisid­ers that the purpose of the book is notprimarily artistic. The author himselfemphasizes the historical motive, and hopesthat his work "will be useful to others."Mr. Rosenberger .has succeeded in pre­senting so faithful a picture of the. Pennsyl­vania Germans because he has written SIm­ply, concretely, and naively, and fn?mfirst-hand information. He has not triedto be subjective about a people who arethemselves highly objective. He has sim­ply selected. the detail that determines the type, and he has done this with an accu­racy which is the result of long familiarity,The book begins with the Pennsylvaniabackground, and discusses briefly the condi­tions in Germany which led to the migra­tions. Mr. Rosenberger gives an account ofthe life of the pioneers, and of the changesin that life which slowly and infrequentlycame. Hits picturesque detail ranges' fromthe building of churches to the making of"schnitz." The Mennonites and the Amishare described in all their curious asceticismand insistence upon non-resistence. Prov­erbs and' superstitions that have grown outof the daily life of the people, and that illus-. trate the Pennsylvania German characterare an interesting feature of the volume.These are typical of Mr. Rosenberger's se­lection:"A man who can build a good fire willmake a good husband.""A diligent house-wife is the best sav-ings box." ,"The middle course is the best way."The final chapter is devoted to "gleaningsfrom old records" which are chiefly wills.The author's interest here is genealogical,and he takes a pardonable joy in presentinghis family history. The account is interest­ing for its inventories of articles in use atvarious periods in the history of the Penn­sylvania Germans, and it has the characteris­tic of all Mr. Rosenberger's detail of sug­gesting and revealing the type.Something should be said about Mr. Ros­enberger's style. It is curiously awkward,inverted, and naive. Yet one feels that it isBOOK REVIEW-UNIVERSITY PREACHERS 107University Preachers for Winter QuarterAnnouncement is made of the UniversityPreachers for the Winter Quarter at theUniversity.The first Preacher in January was BishopJames E.

"They might be called the owners of theirusually small farms, but the majority ofthem had to the lands only limited titles, towhich were attached many burdensome con­ditions and restrictions, while at any timethey might be compelled to sell their inter­est in the land."and the revelation of character in the fol­lowing:"Nor was there any inclination to shirk;but both the men and the women undertookto do all they could, and apparently as aclass neither especially suffered ill from it."Mr. Rosenberger does not analyze deeplythe Pennsylvania Germans as representa­tives of a traditional mode of life in a tra­ditionless environment. He does not give asense of conflict nor does he discuss the im­plications of the defeat of the PennsylvaniaGerman individuality by modern influences.The work is little more than a picture, butit is a faithful one, and its value lies in thefact that it preserves an interesting typewhich is gradually passing.Harry Bingham, '2;").CHICAGO CALENDARSfor 1924Two Styles1.

The fellowshipwhich is to be devoted to the prosecutionof scientific investigations associated withthe packing industry is to be known as the"Arthur Lowenstein Research Fellowship."The name of the Fellow is to be announcedsome time in the near future. The research 'is to be carried on under Professor EdwinO. J otdan, chairman of the Department ofHygiene and Bacteriology at the University.The results of this research are to be madeavailable to the entire meat-packing in­dustry.The purpose of the Institute in offeringevening courses is to give to employes inthe packing plants in Chicago an oppor­tunity to think constructively upon the fun­damental problems with which the industryis concerned. They are intended primarilyfor those who are occupying minor execu­tive positions and for those who are ambi­tious to. rise to executive positions.The correspondence courses are to servethe same purpose for employes in the pack­ing industry outside Chicago.MEAT PACKERS INSTITUTE-LAW ASSOCIATION 111The four-year curriculum planned is toprovide for a degree of specialization. in thephysical and biological sciences, in the so­cial sciences, and in business management.In the first two years attention is to bedirected to the foundations of a universityeducation in which the fundamental prin­ciples of the sciences as well as of businessmanagement is to be emphasized. Duringthese years the direct contact of the stu­dents with the packing industry is to beconfined to frequent excursions to the plants.In the later years the courses are to be morespecialized and students are to spend anincreasingly larger part of their time in theYards.The creation of an education unit in whichthe resources and viewpoint of a great uni­versity and a great industry are combinedin one educational enterprise is indeed aunique coalition. Just as the foundationprinciples of the sciences have been workedout through systematic experiment and ob­servation, so experience in business needs tobe assembled and systematized, and testedpractice made available for dealing withproblems in the future. The business houseshould furnish an ideal laboratory. Oppor­tunity is offered to study with instructorswho bring the scientific viewpoint to bearon subject-matter with which the industryis concerned, and with business men whosepower of analysis has been trained throughpractical experience. It should furnish anopportunity for the student to prepare him­self to take greater. responsibility, rendergreater service and realize larger achieve­ment, for the industry, for himself, and forthe community.+ .. _ •• -aI_.I_II._ ... _In_IIII_""_111_0n_t1II_nll_III_II+I -:::11 Law School Association 1+.- .. - .. - .. -n1l- •• -III-IIII-lln-nll-UII- .. -III-nll-ll+Walter F.

During the past year the Committeesent out questionnaries to all members ofthe Association and gathered a large amountof first-hand information on the manage­ment of law offices. Among the 'Subjectscovered were those of filing, bookkeeping,time records, charging, billing, cost account­ing, etc. They collected also a large num­ber of office forms which have been mountedand are available for study by members ofthe Association.Mr. Tenney is also on the Committee onAdmission to the Illinois Bar, which hascharge of the ceremony at Springfield fourtimes a year. On these occasions the newmembers are sworn in by the Chief Justiceof the Supreme Court, who addresses theclass from the bench. Afterwards the BarAssociation holds a meeting, and the newmembers are instructed in legal ethics andon matters connected with office manage­ment.

The reading was given at a joint meet­ing of the Drama Study Class and the Lit­erary Study Class of the Chicago Woman'sClub, with an attendance of about threehundred club members and guests.The alumni who took part are Mrs.Schuyler B. Terry (Phoebe Bell, '08), Mrs.E. V. L. Brown (Frieda Kirchoff, ex-'04),Henry D. Sulcer, '05, Howard L. Willett,'06, and A. G. Pierrot, '07. Mrs. HowardL. Willett (Grace Williamson, '07), whowas in charge of the play, read the intro­duction and stage descriptions, and Mrs.Henry D. Sulcer, ex-lto, composed andplayed the incidental music used during thereadings. The play, a three act fantasy, waswell received.Amusing Events of Early Football DaysIn a recent issue of the Soui': Side Reviewappeared a biographical sketch of Mr. Stagg.In telling of the early days of the Universitythe article states:"At the opening of the University of Chi­cago Mr. Stagg was asked by former Presi­dent Harper to come to the University ashead of the athletic department. In theautumn of 1892, with only fourteen men outfor football and not many more for baseball,the coach played as captain of both teams.And consequently the 'Grand Old Man' hashis 'C' blanket with two stars, an honorwhich he has bestowed upon many athletessince."Football practice the first year was heldat Washington park, and the first game waswith Englewood High School, Chicago win­ning, 6-0, when the captain made a touch­down."The Chicago scores that first year were:"Chicago 0', Northwestern O."Chicago 10, Michigan 18."Chicago 9, Purdue 38."Chicago 4, Northwestern 6."Chicago 12, Illinois 28."Until 1896 Northwestern and Chicagoplayed two games each season. The recol­lection of the first game with Michiganmakes the 'Old Man' chuckle. Michiganwas scheduled to play with Lehigh, he said.But at the last minute Lehigh' sent wordthat they could not play and Michigan askedChicago to come to Ann Arbor. 'It was notuntil the game was nearly over that thespectators knew that Chicago was playing.'"Among the stars on that first team wereHenry Gordon Gale, now dean of the OgdenGraduate School of Science at the Univer­sity; 'Biily' Rapp, who later married Schu­mann-Heink ; Dr. Joseph B. Raycroft, nowathletic director at Princeton; and HarryChase, the 'red-headed end,' now an attor­ney in Chicago."THE LETTER BOXThe Letter Box(Continued from page 97)thanks and appreciation; The cards camefrom Alumni in various parts of the coun­try, from officials of Alumni Associations ofother universities, from President Burton,from Trustees, and from faculty membersand officials of the University. We extendto them all our best wishes for a happy andsuccessful New Year!John A. Lomax, Alumni Secretary of theUniversity of Texas, a noted authority oncowboy songs who lectured on cowboyliterature at the University last July, sent usa greeting on which appeared the followingcowboy poem:"'Twas good to live when all the rangeWithout no fence or fuss,Belonged in partnership with God,The Government and us.With sky-line bounds fr0111 east to west,With room to go and corne-I liked my fellow man the bestWhen he was scattered some.When my soul hunts for range and restBeyond the last divide,Just plant me in some strip of westThat's sunny, lone and wide.Let cattle rub my headstone round,And coyotes wail their kin,Let hosses come and paw the mound,But don't you fence it in!"Suggests Chicago Phonograph RecordsMy dear Sir:Upon inquiry among the sales rooms ofthe phonograph records, I find we have norecords of the songs usually sung at theUniversity of Chicago. I am of the opinionthat if we have records of this kind that agreat many more people who attend thesports of the University of Chicago wouldbe able to join in the songs, and with thisin mind I spoke yesterday to Mr. MarkHealy of Lyon & Healy who informed methat if the proper demand was made forsuch records they could have them producedin the East, the only place, I understandwhere phonograph records are made.As Secretary of the Alumni Association.I would suggest that you call this matterto their attention and at the same time havethe Alumni select such songs as they wouldlike to have records made of and mail thesame to Mr. Mark Healy in care of Lyon& Healy. with the request that he shouldcommunicate with the record producers inthe East with a view of having these recordsmade and shipped to Chicago for sale. I tmight also be well for the Alumni to statein their letter to Mr. Healy whether or notthey would like to have the songs producedby a soloist or quartet.Yours truly, George J. Williams, RALPH C.

Later when the United States gained pos­session of this territory, traders began to put uptheir cabins on the banks of the river.Then came railroads tapping the rich areas atthe Middle West.The thinly settled country of great distancesnaturally turned to live stock production.In the early days and until the Civil War, theoutlet was in the form of barreled salt beef andpork, or heavily salted and smoked meats. Freshmeat could be had by consumers only by theshipment of live animals. This serious limit onthe output of live stock made necessary a moreefficient and economical method.* * *Under the pressure of this necessity, Gustavus F.Swift, founder of Swift & Company, conceived theidea fifty years ago that fresh meat, kept cool byice, could be transported long distances.In the fifty years since then, Mr. Swift and hissons and the organization that they have built up(now comprising about 50,000 men and women,highly trained in handling perishables) have car­ried forward the idea to its logical conclusion inthe present distributing organization of Swift &Company.The company has twenty-three packing plantswhich furnish nearby cash markets for the livestock the farmer raises. Thousands of refrigeratorcars radiate from these plants to hundreds ofbranch houses and car routes which make avail­able to retailers fresh and delicately cured meats.Swift's Premium Ham, Premium Bacon . andother products are now articles of every-d ycommerce throughout the country.Swift & Company, U. S.
