XVI�EVENTS � .. --��COMMEN�Dean Ernest H. Wilkins, as the readers ofthe Magazine have already been informed,inaugurated a few months ago aBetter "Better Yet" campaign, the purposeYet of which is to inquire into the lead"ing and most characteristic phasesof undergraduate life and activities on theQuadrangles, to report on conditions andsuggest improvements, and, as the situationswarrant, to bring about such improvementsas may be deemed desirable and practicable.After recommendations for fields of investi­gation were obtained from the students, alarge number of special committees wereappointed, each committee having studentand faculty representatives. There are com­mittees, for instance, on the distribution ofthe students' time, on development of classorganizations, the life in the dormitories, thedining halls, the social program, and manyother aspects of student life both in and outof the classroom. Some of the committeeshave already reported and made recommen­dations. Most of the committees, however,are still carrying on investigations in theirspecial fields.In due time the reports of all the commit­tees and their recommendations will be in,and Dean Wilkins then will be able to drawup a report with definite improvements inmind, as based on a rather thorough studyof the various needs in the student life atChicago. Undoubtedly there is room forimprovement-there is room for improvementin such matters in any large institution wherestudent relationships arise and develop inmore or less unsystematic fashion. Already,as a result of having both students andfaculty members on the committees, a notablycloser relationship has been established be:" tween the undergraduates and the faculty.Several highly important results will be ob­tained from this "Better Yet" campaign:First, a better understanding and recognitionof the more fundamental phases of studentlife in a large university; and, second, asystematic and concrete, as well as generallypopular program on student life and affairs.The campaign is most timely, as it fits wellinto the aim of President Burton to "human­ize" the University. Dean Wilkins is to becongratulated on the idea and its successfulprogress.* * *Within very recent years our alumni clubsthroughout the country have developedrapidly and, in the main, withGoodspeed creditable success. .During theLectures period of formation, however,it was generally felt that whatwas most needed, for more effective club or­ganization and interest, was some programwherein the clubs could take a definite partin somewhat direct connection with the Uni­versity. Many times in the last three yearsthe clubs or their officers have expressed thisneed. The Alumni Council and its ClubsCommittee are now endeavoring to presenta program in which the clubs can assumeactive and helpful responsibility-in fact,the whole success of the program will dependmostly on the effective cooperation of theclubs.A few weeks ago Professor Edgar J.Goodspeed, D.B., '97. Ph.D. '98, won imme­diate national recognition and distinction bythe publication of his American translation ofthe New Testament. Noli terary achieve­ment in recent years has created so much in­terest and discussion. Since the publication165166 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEof his now famous translation, which hasbeen printed serially by a number of news­papers in the United States and Canada, andappears now in book form as published bythe University' of Chicago Press, Dr. Good­speed has been called upon for lectures onthis subject. In response, he has prepareda brilliant and entertaining lecture, and he isnow finding it difficult to meet the rapidlyincreasing requests for this lecture.At the last Alumni Council meeting it wassuggested that here was an opportunity forhaving this lecture presented in various citiesunder the auspices of the- alumni clubs. Thesuggestion met with hearty favor and theClubs Committee is now preparing to estab­lish connections for the lecture with suchclubs as are willing to actively cooperate.The University is willing to allow Dr. Good­speed to take off from his University worksuch of his time as may be necessary tofurther the project; and Dr. Goodspeed iswilling to favor the clubs and club localitiesin the matter of engagements. Such a pro­gram will enable the clubs to do a con­structive piece of work in the way of "pre­senting" the University to their . localities.Already lectures have been arranged for inCleveland, Columbus, and Birmingham. 'Ifthe plan succeeds it may well be the fore­runner of a fixed program whereby, fromtime to time, our alumni clubs will "present"the University to their communities througha lecture by some noted member of thefaculty. It might be highly desirable, for in­stance, to have Dr. Breasted, if his workpermits on his return from Egypt, to give alecture, and so on in a great and continuous"club series."The success of the whole plan, obviously,depends primarily on the interest and assist­ance of the clubs. If adopted, however, itshould be a very influential factor in achiev­ing closer and more effective club organiza­tion and give the clubs a worthwhile aim,around which their club activities couldcenter. Mr. Henry D. Sulcer, '05, Chairmanof the Clubs Committee, tells of the planand club opportunity in this number of theMagazine.· We urge all of our club officersand club members to give this matter closeattention and we trust that their responsewill fully justify the hopes and constructiveaims of the Clubs Committee.* * *Well, we're now a month nearer AlumniDay, and this year Alumni Day comes onSaturday, June 7th-from severalJune 7th days to a week earlier than usual.We have previously commentedon the "Better Yet" campaign in progressat the University. Why not extend the spiritof that campaign beyond the walls of theQuadrangle? Our aim should be a "BetterYet" Reunion. This certainly is the aim of those who have the Reunion in charge-butthe attainment of that aim must always restwith the alumni. It will not be long beforedefinite announcements will be reaching you,in the Magazine and through the mails. Butyou know the date now-Saturday, June 7th.Reserve that week-end for Chicago, for yourclassmates and City Gtay friends. Mark yourcalendar Now!* * *As the years pass and our organized classesbecome more numerous, and the June Re­union and other alumni activitiesClass become more effective throughSecretaries class activity, the necessity forha ving strong class officers, par­ticularly class secretaries, becomes inreas­ingly obvious. We have" indeed, reached atime when it might be well to form an Asso­ciation of Class Secretaries. The purposeof such an association would be to bring thekey officers of each class together severaltimes a year-not merely once, just beforeReunion, as is now the case-so that mattersof class interest, organization and activitiescan be discussed and each officer derive thebenefit of discussion and contact with similarofficers in the other classes. There wouldthus grow up a "class secretaries tradition,"with the officers and the classes profitingdirectly by more systematic information onwhat had been accomplished in the past, andvaluable-guidance on successful methods inclass functions and procedure.In the March "Letter Box" appears aletter from Eli E. Palmquist, '00, D. B. '05,pointing out the desirability of building upclass interest by having the class memberswho reside in the Chicago district holdmeetings during the year. The idea is agood -one, to say the least, and should beconsidered by all of our class officers. Butprobably, to supplement that idea and betterassure its success, some organization of theclass secretaries-such as an Association ofClass Secretaries-would be most effectiveand bring quicker and surer results. If suchan association is formed, and winter meet­ings of the classes are held at Chicago, thesecretaries can carry back regularly to theirclasses information on what other classesare doing or seeking to do, and thus everyclass, or at least an important class nucleus,would be constantly informed on matterswhich would be of great help in shapingclass policies and steadily furthering classdevelopment.In view of the approaching Reunion andthe usual annual meeting of class officers todiscuss the Reunion program, this sugges­tion is offered for consideration at this time.We urge that it be taken up and given at­tention and that, if some such association befound desirable, it be organized this year.ALUMN AFFAIRSALUMNILexington Alumni Club OrganizedFebruary 12, 1924.M v dear Mr. Pierrot:It gives me great pleasure to inform youthat on January 16th, 1924, a meeting ofalumni and former students of the Univer­sity of Chicago, who live in Lexington, washeld in the Science Building on the U niver­sity of Kentucky campus and the Universityof Chicago Club of Lexington, Kentucky,was organized.The following officers were elected: Pres­ident: Dr. H. N. States. Ph.D. '22; Vice­President: Dr. A. W. Fortune, Ph.D. '15;Secretary- Treasurer: Professor W. LewisRoberts, J.D. '20.At this meeting eleven were present andthe names of thirty-two former students ofthe University were given to the secretary.I t is proposed to have a banquet sometimebefore the middle of May next, at which itis hoped that those in attendance may havethe pleasure of listening to someone fromthe University faculty. Owing to the factthat we have two colleges in Lexington,Transylvania and the University of Ken­tucky, it is very desirable to have some onewho is well known to address the club.Possibly President- Burton or Dean ShailerMathews might be coming this way some­time this spring and might be willing tostop over at Lexington. Is this at all likely?Yours very truly,W. Lewis Roberts, J.D. '20,Secretary.College of Law,University of Kentucky.President Burton Addresses Central OhioAlumni ClubPresident Ernest D. Burton was the guestof honor and speaker at the sixth annualbanquet of the Central Ohio Alumni Club,at Columbus, on Saturday, February 23rd.The banquet and meeting was held at theColumbus Athletic Club, with fifty-fouralumni and a number of guests from OhioState University present. President Bur­ton's visit and address were greatly enjoyedby all present.In the course of his address, PresidentBurton stated that research in educationalfields will be the foundation for future life,just as pioneer research of the past has beenthe basis for the present educational pro-- gram. In commenting on the future of edu­cation he prophesied that a school of politicswill be established at the University, point­ing out that if such a school were added itwould be for the development of more effi- 167AFFAIRScient and conscientious mayors, congress­men, statesmen and other politicians.Because of the widespread increasing de­sire for higher education which is accom­panied with increasing enrollments togetherwith a lack of adequate teaching staffs, aseparation of undergraduate and graduatestudents is a necessity, Dr. Burton stated.Too much stress is being laid on figuresrelative to enrollment and graduation ofstudents-with the deplorable fact thatcloser contact between student and professoris lacking more now than ever. As a curefor this condition, he advocated an increasein the number of colleges.Dr. W. O. Thompson, President of OhioState University, one of the guests andspeakers, spoke on the necessity of in­terpretation in the educational program.Dean William McPherson, Ph.D., '95,Dean Alfred Vivian, Dean William E. Hen­derson and other prominent Ohio StateUniversity educators were guests. Dr. JoelE. Carman, Ph.D. '15, acted as toastmaster.At this meeting it was announced that, underthe auspices of the Central Ohio AlumniClub, Dr. Edgar J. Goodspeed would soongive his lecture, on the translation of theNew Testament, at Columbus.Mrs. Thomas G. Phillips, ex, club secre­tary, William S. Harman, '00, and other clubofficers had this meeting, one of the best inthe history of the club, in charge.Washington, D. C., Alumni ClubMeetingsThe University of Chicago Alumni Clubof Washington, D. c., met on February 4,1924, in the library 'Of the Institute of Eco­nomics. Dr. William Edward Dodd talkedfor more than an hour on "Woodrow Wilsonand His Work." Between fifty and sixty en­thusiastic members came out to -hear him,despite one of the stormiest nights w« havehad this winter. .With Dr. H. G. Moulton, '07, Ph. D., '15,in the chair we felt that the club had started'Off with plenty of momentum and that thernomen tum will be easilv sustained through-out the year. .Plans are almost completed for a bigdinner on March 20th for Professor Staggand the next biggest shining light of theremaining faculty that we can induce theUniversity to spare for us for the occa­sion.We are very much "alive" this year andour club affairs are moving fast.Bertha Henderson, '10,Secretary.168 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEChicago Alumnae Club Bulletin forSpring and Winte'r Quarter, 1924General Club MeetingsTuesday, March 4-8 p. m.-Lecure byMr. Ernest Hatch Wilkins on "Humanizingthe College," at the Chicago College Club,153 N.

On February29th Secretary Pierrot addressed the Wis­consin Alumni Club of Chicago at a lunch­eon meeting at the Palmer House Hotel.These invitations were deeply appreciated,and afforded opportunity for furthering thefine relations between the two universitiesand discussion of alumni relationships.170 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEBig Ten Clubs Meeting at ClevelandUnder the leadership and auspices of theBig Ten Club of Cleveland, there was agathering of Big Ten alumni at Cleveland on,Friday and Saturday, February 15 and 16,to consider the matter of development ofBig Ten clubs throughout the country andthe advisability of forming an enlarged or­ganization in which such clubs could takepart. Benjamin C. Boer (Iowa), presidentof the Cleveland Big Ten Club, presidedover. the conferences.The club representatives present were:H. R. Brady (Ohio State) of Pittsburgh; J.Leo Scanlon (Iowa) and E. H. Hagstrom(Purdue) of Buffalo; M. P. Bensley (Michi­gan) and C. H. Buckingham (Wisconsin) ofNiagara Falls; B. C. Boer (Iowa) andArman L. Merriam (Chicago) of Cleveland.The following university representatives andalumni secretaries were present as visitors:President W. O. Thompson, Ohio StateUniversity; Dean C. M. Thompson, Univer­sity of Illinois; Professor J. F. A. Pyre,University of Wisconsin, and secretary ofthe Western Conference; W. A. Alexander,Librarian, Indiana University; the AlumniSecretaries present were, J. L. Morrill, OhioState University, E. C. Von Tress, Jr., In­diana, and A. G. Pierrot, Chicago.The discussion centered mainly aroundtwo questions-as to whether some form ofnational Big Ten organization is desirable,and, if so, whether it is desirable at thistime. After considering various angles inthe two-day conferences, it was felt gen­erally that there was some question as towhether any form of national organizationis needed. In view of the small attendanceand limited representation, it was the generalopinion, also, that no definite action shouldbe taken at this conference. A committeewas appointed, however, to take the matterunder consideration for a year, during whichtime it was hoped to obtain more definiteinformation and representative opinions fromsuch Big Ten clubs as are now, or arebeing organized, and from the alumni secre­taries and the universities interested. TheBig Ten Club of Cleveland offers its ser­vices to any Big Ten club on advice as toits organization and program. The con­ference closed with a plan to hold a similarmeeting at Cleveland next year, for furtherdiscussion and consideration of Big Tenclub developments.The sessions closed with the Third AnnualBanquet of the Cleveland Club, at the Win­ton Hotel, on Saturday night, February 16th.There was a gathering of over 100 alumniat the banquet. Attorney Luther Day(Michigan), of Cleveland. presided. Thespeakers were: President Walter A. Jessup,Universitv of Iowa: President W. O. Thomp­son, Ohio State University; Dean C. M.Thompson, Illinois; Professor ]. F. Pyre,Wisconsin: W. A. Alexander, Indiana: A. G.Pierret, Chicago; and A. P. Baston, Minne­sota. The speakers dwelt upon the increas- ing alumni relationships and responsibilities,the marked and significant growth of west­ern educational institutions, and alumnicooperation on proper development of ath­letic interests. During the dinner the songsof the various universities were sung and ahigh spirit of college pleasantries prevailed.Throughout the conference the ClevelandClub, which occupies attractive club roomsat 1620 Euclid Avenue, proved a cordial host.It should be called to the attention of BigTen alumni everywhere that whenever theyare in Cleveland they are always welcome todrop in and visit the Cleveland Big TenClub rooms.Invitation to Alumni to Attend New YorkBig Ten Dinner and Chicago LuncheonI am writing to let you know of the BigTen Dinner to be held in the Hotel Astor,Friday evening, March 21st.Mr. Stagg will be in New York at thattime and has consented to be one of thespeakers.

Gray, '13,Ph.D. '16Dean William S. Gray, '13, Ph.D. '16If inheritance, experience and backgroundare necessary for success in the field of Edu­cation, certainly Dean Gray of the School ofEducation is thoroughly qualified. Althougha comparatively young man he has hadmany years and wide variety of experiencein educational work, covering the teachingprofession from rural schools to universities.William Scott Gray was born at Coats­burg, Illinois, on June 5th,1885. His father had beena teacher for twenty-fiveyears, later engaged inbus i n e s s, and he is atpresent a member of theIllinois State Senate. Wil­liam Gray obtained hisgrammar school educationin his native town, and hishigh school education inthe Map lew 0 0 d HighSchool at Camp Point,Illinois. In 1904-5 he wasa rural school teacher, andfrom 1905 to 1908 wasprincipal of a v i l l ageschool at Fowler, Illinois.He entered the IllinoisState Normal Universityat Normal in 1908, whichinstitution he attended fortwo years and in whichduring the next two yearshe was principal of theTraining School.As an undergraduate Gray was mainly in­terested in debating and literary activities.At lllinois State Normal University he wasa member of the Cicero Debating Societyand of the Wrightonian Literary Society.He was also a member of the Musical Club.At the University of Chicago he became amember of Phi Eta and of Phi Delta Kappafraternities; he is at present National Presi­dent of the latter fraternity.In 1912 he came to the University of Chi­cago, where he received the S. B. degree in1913. He obtained his A. M. degree at Co­lumbia University the following year. Hereturned to Chicago in 1914, as assistant inEducation, and continued his graduatestudies. In 1915 he was appointed instructorin Education, and in 1916 he obtained hisdoctor's degree at Chicago. The same yearhe was appointed Assistant Dean of theCollege of Education, and in the followingyear, 1917, he was appointed Dean and As­sistant Professor. In 1918 he was appointed Associate Professor and in 1921 Professorof Education. His services as Dean covera period of almost seven years.Dean Gray has become a national author­ity on the problems of Reading in theschools. He is frequently called to citiesthroughout the country to examine and re­port upon the teaching of Reading in thelocal schools and to lecture on the place ofreading in the pupil's training and educa-tional progress. He isoften called upon to makerecommendations for im­provement in reading con­ditions, special cases ofdifficulties in reading, andfor more effective methodsof teaching reading in theschools. He has publishedStudies of Elementary­School Reading ThroughStandardized Tests, in 1916,Remedial Cases in Read­ing.' Their Diagnosis andTreatment, in 1922, andsome supplementary edu­cational monographs.On September 14, 1921,he married Beatrice War­ner Jardine, of Kenvil,New Jersey.Dean Gray is a memberof the National Educa­tional Association, theAmerican Association forthe Advancement of Science, the NationalAssociation of Directors of Educational Re­search, and a member of the Quadrangleand University clubs. He has been activefor some years in developing Alumni organ­ization, interests and activities, and was oneof the organizers of our School of EducationAlumni Association. He is an interestingand effective speaker and has addressed anumber of Alumni gatherings, more par­ticularly in connection with Alumni meet­ings held at conventions of state teachersassociations.Concerning the Alumni he states: "Thequality of the work done by an institution isreflected to a large extent by the success ofits graduates. It is very gratifying to notefrom year to year that an increasingly largenumber of Chicago alumni are holding posi­tions of leadership in American education.We rejoice in the progress of our formerstudents and wish for them all the largestmeasure of success."1�2 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEW"S OF THEQUADRANGLESSenior Mustache Race Begins SoonFebruary has been a particularly signifi- _cant month on the Quadrangles, with atleast five important changes in the routineof the campus _ being made or proposed.The Daily Maroon, the daily newspaper of theo niversity, enlarged its size from five col­umns to six, which has resulted in the pub­lication of a paper one-third larger than be­fore; two of the "Better Yet" committeesmade radical proposals for changes whichmet with the approval of Dean Ernest HatchWilkins; the Navy Department of the UnitedStates announced that it contemplated mov­ing its graduate naval school at Annapolisto the campus here; and the UndergraduateCouncil definitely adopted the Hare systemof proportional balloting, which was intro­duced in the Junior class elections - for theUndergraduate Council. The WashingtonProm, the Freshman-Sophomore Prom,Portfolio, definite announcement of thechanged names for the Blackfriars show,and preliminary tryouts for the 1924 showalso occupied the period.Russell Pierce, the Managing Editor, andHoward Landau, Business Manager, werechiefly responsible for the enlarged MaroonThis has been their ambition ever since theyfirst assumed office at the beginning of thefall Quarter, and they reached the culmina­tion Tuesday, February 26, when the sixcolumn issue first appeared. The institu­tion of a daily summary of world events,and of an experienced editorial board with adefinite editorial policy are two of the newfeatures which have already caused muchfavorable comment among the students.The "Better Yet" committee studying thematter of the appointing of undergraduatesto positions on the Board of Student Or­ganizations reported favorably to Dean Wil­kins and suggested that a clause be addedto the statutes of the University providingthat the President appoint two students toplaces on this board from a group of fourselected by the Undergraduate Council. Al­ready this measure has passed the Boarditself and the University Senate. I twillcome up for the sanction of the Board ofTrustees at its next meeting. Another committee. reporting on the re­organization of the Honor Commission, sug­gested a body consisting of six faculty andsix undergraduates to handle matters of stu­dent honor. The situation has not beendefinitely decided as yet, as the suggestionis still under consideration. The "BetterYet" committee on the distribution of stu­dents' time has reported with a question­naire which Dean Wilkins has required everyone enrolled in any of the colleges to fillout. From it, the Dean hopes to tabulatevaluable data which may be of use in anynumber of ways. The addition of a Schoolof Music will also be considered after ques­tionnaires concerning such a school havebeen turned in.The announcement of the intention of theNavy to remove its graduate school herefrom Annapolis came as a decided surprise,as none of the University authorities hadheard anything of it. But in a bulletin is­sued to a Washington paper, several weeksago, the announcement was tentatively con­firmed, and it seems only a matter of timebefore the University will hear of it offi­cially, one way or another.The Hare system of voting threw_ thecampus into "chaos", in that it absolutelybroke up all "political" combinations. Be­cause of the successful way in which itworked, it will probably be used in all classelections hereafter.Five men from the Junior class and fourwomen were nominated for the Council.Kenneth Laird and John Abraham, for themen, and Martha Smart for the women,were elected. Don Irwin, Edward Wilson,and Erling Dorf were the defeated candi­dates among -the men, Catherine Rawson,Gladys Walker and Margaret Viberts amongthe women. The newly elected membersimmediately took their places on the Coun­cil. Election of the president for next yearfor which Laird and Abraham alone are eli�gible, will be held early in the spring Quar­ter. At present, Joseph Duggan, famousguard on the basket ball team, is president."So Long Susan" has been chosen as thenew name for the Blackfriars - show in theplace of "The Potion of Passion". In thepreliminary tryouts under the direction ofHamilton Coleman, Friars show director­extraordinary, forty-five men wen' tenta­tively retained to be given parts in the cast.Two men will be allotted to each character,and the better of the two will make theshow in the elimination tests soon to come.(Continued on Page 197)ATHLETICSMaroon conference title hopes, which havehad more ups and downs this year than anexpress elevator, took another sensationalrise when the Varsity triumphed over theinvading Purdue Boilermakers in the returngame with the LaFayettemen played onBartlett floor. The final score was 35-21and the Maroons were at no time in dangeror even pressed. Capt. Campbell Dickson,playing his last game on the home floor,was the outstanding star of the crucial com­bat, scoring six field goals and one freethrow, for a total of 13 points. His firstcame seven seconds after the opening whis­tle and gave the Maroons a lead which theynever lost. Duggan, at guard, clung like aburr to Spradling, Purdue's star basketshooter, while Weis, at the other defensiveposition, pushed the whole Boilermaker teamaround like so many chess men. For thefirst time since the Wisconsin game theMaroons actually hit their stride.As a result of the Purdue contest theMaroons remain on top of the Big Ten, andwith any kind of luck should win the Con­ference championship. Just prior to thePurdue contest, all hopes of the Varsity hadbeen dashed to the ground by a one pointdefeat at the hands of Michigan in a hard­fought game played on the Wolverine floor.The Ann Arbor men bewildered the Ma­roons from the start and took a big lead,. with the result that when the Varsity stageda whirlwind rally shortly before the end ofthe game, it was cut short by the final gun,with the score 24-23 and the Maroons on theshort end. Barnes, Varsity ace, was suf­fering from a Charley horse at the time,and aside from being slow in his plays,missed three out of five free throws.The Michigan game would have beenthe final spike in the Varsity coffin and madea tie for the leadership the best they couldhave possibly hoped for had not Purdue, onthe same night. dropped a high scoring gameto the lowly but rejuvenated Iowans, who,led by the brilliant Heine Jensen, rang upforty points to the Boilermakers' 31.While the floor basketmen were still wor­rying about their final conference rating, theMaroon waterbasketmen went out and wonthe conference title by trimming Wisconsinin the final game of the season at Wisconsinby an 8 to 6 score.

Shortly before his deathhe invited representatives of each class tomeet him at dinner to discuss the question.There was a very spirited discussion at thedinner, and some of the suggestions weremade subjects for further consideration atanother dinner to be held shortly thereafter.A date was fixed, but before it arrived Presi­dent Harper was overtaken by his fatal ill­ness, and the adjourned meeting was neverheld.I know that in the meantime much hasbeen done by the University and Alumni tobring about closer relations, but I think therecent letters represent the most concertedeffort made in that direction since the move­ment inaugurated by President Harper. Ithink that the letters, bringing informationin a personal, intimate way about what isgoing on at the University, will mean muchto all the Alumni.Very truly yours,Harry N. Gottlieb, '00.'Chicago, Illinois.On the Matter of Alumni ContributionsEvanston, Illinois,February 10, 1924.Dear Mr. Pierrot:On my return from a business trip, I findyour thoughtful letter of January 25, and Ijust wish you to know how genuinely I ap­preciate your letter, and the consideration'which you gave to' the open letter I wrote you under date of December 6, and "Hi"Kennicott's report of the 25th Anniversarydinner of Chi Psi at the University.All that I desire, or that any members ofmy fraternity desire, in giving to you Mr.Stagg's thought, is that some plan accepta­ble to the majority of the alumni be put intoeffect. I truly believe that most of us wouldwelcome an opportunity to make an annualpledge to the University, and it gives methe greatest pleasure to know that commit­tees have various plans under consideration.That you will decide upon the best plan, Ihave no doubt, and that you will accomplishsomething really worth-while for the Uni­versity and its alumni in such plan, I amcertain.May I tell you also how much I enjoyreading the Alumni Magazine, and howhappy I am always when a new numbercomes to .rrie.Believe me always, with' kindest regards,Very sincerely,Lees Ballinger, '02.To President Burton-Class OrganizationThe Philadelphia Federation of Churches, February 6, 1924.My dear President Burton:I t is a source of constant pleasureto someof us to know that you are the Presidentof our great institution. Almost a quarterof a century separates me from the dayswhen I lived on the campus and sat at yourfeet and that of your colleagues, but distanceis constantly lending enchantment to thosefellowships and those days.I am particularly anxious about the activi­ties of our Alumni Council. I feel a greatresponsibility should be assumed by thatgroup, a responsibility that should. expressitself in a serious effort to bring togethertwo or three times a year in addition to theJune Commencement the members of eachclass that are in the neighborhood of Chi­cago. They can thus develop a greater classcohesion, and at the same time become areal asset to the Institution itself.As I wrote to the Alumni Magazine sometime ago, I think it would be a good pub­licity investment if the University itself putsome money in such an enterprise.Here in Philadelphia we are, trying to re­vive the old Alumni Club. We have not setthe date of our meeting, but I am writing toask when next you are to be en route toNew York for the Atlantic Seaboard if youcannot swing off from the train, drop in toour meeting, which would be called to suitUNIVERSITY NOTESyour convenience, and give us a messagethat would greatly stir our local Alumni.If Mrs. Palmquist knew that I were writ­ing she would surely send her love.Kindest regards to Mrs. Burton and your­self., Sincerely,Eli E.

It is not essential that youmake corrections in the magazine, but in­accuracy in statements always gives me asort of shock, so I am transferring thatshock unto you and particularly for yourpersonal information.Since you are. regarded as the source ofall information, I want you to be informedthat Chicago played two games with Illinoisin 1892, the first of which Chicago won 10-4and the second she lost 12-28. I played inthe first game but a few days before thefinal game in signal practice McGillivray,left half, ran into me in such a way as tosprain my ankle, so I served as referee in,the final game and still I let Illinois win it!Still another correction was that the Mich­igan game was played at Toledo and not atAnn Arbor.For your information, the correct scoresfor 1892 were as follows:Oct. 22, 1892-Chicago, 0; N orthwestern, O.Nov. 2nd-Chicago, 4; Northwestern, 6.Played at Evanston.Nov. 5-Chicago, 18; Lake Forest, 18.Nov. 12-Chicago, 10; Michigan, 18. Playedat Toledo.Nov. 16-Chicago, 10; Illinois, 4.Nov. 19-Chicago, 0; Purdue, 38. Played atLafayette.Nov. 24-Chicago, 12; Illinois, 28. Playeda t Champaign.The reason the first game was so late inthe season was that it took time to, arrangeour schedule and get the team. It took threeweeks to get a team and a schedule.The University opened on Saturday, Oct.1st, and Monday, Oct. 3rd, 1892, marked theinitial football practice of the University ofChicago. .Sincerely,A. A. Stagg.Again Concerning Women Class PresidentsJanuary 29, 1,924.Dear Dean Talbot:I had not noticed the statement concern­ing the choice of a woman as president ofthe Junior Class because I hcve been tied upwith examination papers. I can not say thatthat statement is incorrect. In 1911 when Iwas made vice-president of the Senior Class, 175I found that only once before had a womanheld that office; Helen Sunny hc.d been vice­president of the Senior Class in 1908. As faras it concerned other than the senior classes,I am not certain. I do know that the greatargument that the men in our class gaveagainst my election as vice-president wasthat it would set a precedent and that there­after there was likelihood that the class offi­ces would go to two men and two womeninstead of three men and one woman. As amatter of fact, I believe that the vice-presi­dency of the Senior Class since has beengenerally held by a woman. Beyond that Ican not say. Of course, I was acting presi­dent for two weeks while Vallee Appel wassick.The tea party which you and Miss Breck­inridge gave in Washington during the Holi­days was a great joy. It was indeed apleasure to see both of vou and so manyother University of Chicago people, also.The new year is going very happily forme; I hope it is equally happy for you.Loyally,Mollie Ray Carroll, '11.Goucher College,, Baltimore, Maryland."Such Honors Weren't for Women"The New York Times of February 5th had,under the above caption, the following edi­torial on the subject of women class presi­dents at the University:"Recent protests against what was calledthe failure of co-educational colleges to co­educate-e-tc put the boys and girls, that is,on a real equality for all college activities­seem to be justified by a sad tale that comesfrom the University of Chicago."There it has come to be the invariablecustom for all the class Presidents to bemen and all the Vice Presidents to' bewomen. That, in itself, is one of the dis­criminations against which complaint wasmade, but still worse is it that when at theUniversity of Chicago this year three classPresidents, sophomore, junior and senior,were compelled to step out of their proudpositions, a truly dreadful thing happened.Were the Vice Presidents allowed to takethe places of the departed, which is whatVice Presidents are supposed to do auto­matically and to be what they are for? Nota tall! The thought that commencementwith all its joys and glories is approachingcame instantly to the minds of the mascu­line students, and immediately it was decidedthat it never would do to let feminine offi­cials lead the classes at such a time."The remedy promptly was found in thecalling of special elections, a thing of which,apparently, there would have been nothought had the class Vice Presidents beenboys instead of girls. To the latter anhonor was accorded while it was expectedto be empty, but when it ceased to be emptyit was taken away."176 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEUrges Vocational Counselling in CollegeMy dear Mr. Pierrot:Thank you for. your letter of October 30,with the information regarding the AlumniMagazine. I am inclosing a check for $2.00,which will cover my membership dues andmy subscription to the Magazine for theyear 1924.My experience with the Federal Board forVocational Education, and as Personnel Di­. rector for the Reuben H. Donnelley Cor­poration, has afforded me an opportunity totalk with many hundreds of university menand women. This experience has borne inupon me the necessity for inducing students,during their college days, to give very seri­ous consideration to the requirements of theworking world, at the time they are select­ing their courses.The University could do no greater serv­ice than to ·provide vocational counsellorsto advise with the students about the vari­ous occupations and professions, and thebest courses to take, with the idea of prep­aration for the business and industrial world.Such counselling as is being given at thepresent time is inadequate, and as a result,many students on leaving the university, areregretting the poor selection they have madeof courses.Cordially yours,George A.

I did not know that Iwas eligible for membership in the AlumniAssociation of the University of Chicago. Iwas at the University for three years in theScientific Department but did not graduate.I obtained my letter in football.In 1900 I went to the University of Mich­igan and obtained my degree in MechanicalEngineering and have belonged for manyyears to the Michigan Alumni Association.If I am eligible for membership to yourAlumni organization, I would be verypleased to join as I have the greatest respectfor Mr. Stagg and have a great many warmpersonal friends who are graduates or onthe faculty.There may have been some mistake insending this comm nication to me but if Iam eligible I would be glad to sign up forlife membership.Awaiting your reply, I amYours very truly,Edward P. Rich. Concerning the Debating Teams SituationTo the Editor,Alumni Magazine:In view of the statements concerning thisyear's debates in the "News of the Quad­rangles" last month, in which your cor­respondent said that the teams were "rentwith internal dissension" and that "severalmembers resigned", we feel called upon tostate the facts .No one "resigned" from the team. One ofthe members of the negative squad becameill, had to undergo an operation, and wasprevented by doctor's orders from debating.A second member was declared ineligible bythe registrar's office, and in addition his de­bating work proved unsatisfactory. Thework of a third member of the negativesquad was unsatisfactory, he failing even todevelop an acceptable constructive speech orto make a showing which would have justi­fied the coaches in sending him againstMichigan. The second and third membersof the squad did not write letters to thestudent paper "resigning" until nearly aweek after we had removed them for theabove reasons. .With only two weeks' preparation thenegative team put up an excellent fightagainst Michigan, losing by a 2 to 1 decision,,while the affirmative team defeated North­western in Mandel Hall.Homer Hoyt; J.D., '18,Royal E. Montgomery, M.A., '23.(University Debate Coaches.)When Football Was an "Indoor Sport"Dear Mr. Pierrot :I have just received a letter from JonathanE. Webb, one of our old football players,concerning the death of Dr. Robert N.Tooker. In it he mentions that he has sentyou a copy of his letter concerning Tooker.I am writing to correct the mistake as tothe year Tooker played football and won his"C". He was a member of the 1896 footballteam and not the 1897.Bobby, as the boys called him, made hisgreatest reputation in the Thanksgiving D�ygarr.e with Michigan which was played 111, the old coliseum on 63rd Street. That yearMichigan had a famous 205-lb. guard namedCarr and I remember that I was very muchconcerned about Bobby's ability to handlehim because Bobby was quite young andcomparatively inexperienced and was out­weighed about 30 lbs. The boy, however,rose to the emergency and played a gameof which we were all proud. I rememberBobby telling me after the game how ratherearly in the game he had gotten an espe­cially good head charge on Carr and puthim out of the play and Carr, who had notpaid much attention to him before that,looked at him and said, "That was a damnedgood poke, young fellow." Chicago won thegame 7 to 6.Sincerely, A. A. Stagg.THE LETTER BOXOld University Echoes=-From IndiaAbout College PapersDear Mr. Pierrot:Did I ever tell you that I was one of thepublishers of the "Volante," the paper thatwas published by the students of the OldUniversity? When I joined the Universityin September, 1868, the students maintaineda, publication that appeared once a year, inmagazine form, bearing the ponderous andweighty name of "T.he Index Universitatus."It was about as ponderous in matter as inname, as I recollect the publication, afterhalf a century.Several men, of whom I think three wereBreckenridge, Barker, and Weston, all of '70,started a new paper named "The CollegeTimes." That was a private publication, be­gun in opposition to the Index. That didnot suit the student body and it was decidedlo try again. That time the Students Asso­ciation took the. matter up and other menwere named, but of the editors I only recallClark of my class. Davidson of mv classand I were the publishers and we selectedthe firm to do our printing, that had thereputation for doing the best work in Chi­cago, in their day. Clark and Davidsonha ve both been dead many years. Theselection of a name gave us some troublebut we took the Latin word "volo" and made"Volant e." How long it lived I do not know,but it was still being issued when I wasgraduated in '72. .Yours sincerely,Frank H. Levering, '72',Phonographic Records at GamesSheffield, Illinois,February 2, 1924.I was deeply interested in what Mr. Wil­liams had to say in the January Universityof Chicago Magazine, a propos having theVictor people make records of Chicagosongs. Truly it is a worth-while suggestion.But a happier thought occurred to me afterhearing the Chicago-Illinois game (althoughthat contest antedates Mr. Williams" letter)via KYW ... and that is this-Would. itnot be possible to have some phonographicconcern bring its recording apparatus out onStagg Field' at the next Chicago-Wisconsingame and make several records by the sev­eral bands, student body choruses, et al.?I was back for that fight on November24th last. I shall never forget the thrill af­forded by those glorious bands, especiallythe Maroon with its peerless drum-anddrum-major; the esprit du corps breathedforth in those mighty Chicago songs andcountered by "On Wisconsin" from the eastand north stands; the inimitable gyrationsof Arthur Cody and his satellites; the white­capped "C".. surmounting the maroon; theyells and cheers for the Olympians on thegrid. . . • Is there a man Who would not 11'1give much to be able to have it all broughtback again in his own home? What a price­less possession for the club or fraternityhouse. . . . If such a thing were possible­and no one will lay himself liable to beingknown as a "fogey" by assaying the con­trary.Thank you for your attention, Mr. Pierrot,and I shall be glad to hear from you if any­thing materializes after placing the sugges­t.on in the proper channels.Yours very truly,Evan M. Klock, ex '26.Two College Marching SongsA recent issue of the Min·nesota AiumniWeekly has this article concerning the fam­ous song, "On Wisconsin":"Had it not been for the irony of fate"On Wisconsin" might have become "OnMinnesota," for William Purdy composedthe song for the University of Minnesota."The Minneapolis Tribune had offered$100 for a University of Minnesota footballsong. William Purdy, a graduate of Ham­ilton College (class of 1906) composed atune for that purpose. But his friend, CarlBeck, a Wisconsin graduate, suggested thatit be written for his alma mater, so he him­self wrote the words."On the night before Homecoming thecampus at Madison was tense with excite­ment and enthusiasm. They wanted a fightsong, so they called a mass meeting. Astranger walked to the front of the assem-.bly and played a tune. The crowd cheeredwith delight and immediately accepted thesong-s-t'On Wisconsin"-as their collegefight song."Purdy became sick. He was reduced topoverty and was suffering from tuberculosis.The University of Wisconsin took up a col­lection-but it was too late; William Purdydied before hearing the news. The collec­tion, amounted to about $3,000, was givento his widow and children."This story is of particular interest to Chi­cagoans-not only because of OUr great ad­miration for "On Wisconsin," a song thatis often sung at all Chicago fraternityhouses-but because it was the same Wil­liam Purdy who wrote the music for oneof out popular marching songs. Purdy,who was then connected with the CollegeMusic Agency, Chicago, wrote the musicfor "The March of the Maroons," the open­ing lines of which are:"Plunge, plunge on t�rough the line,And fight for old Chicago's fame!"The words for this song were written byCampbell Marvin, '12."The March of the Maroons" remainsone of our most popular football songs-so.that William Purdy has to his credit themusic for two notable college songs of theMiddle West.178 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEStriking Origin of aNew AnaestheticIn a recent address before the ChicagoAssociation of Commerce, President Burtonrefers to the remarkable discovery of a newanaesthetic at the University:"Some of you have "heard of Dr. Arn oLuckhardt's discovery of a new anaestheticwhich prorriises to supplant all other anaes­thetics, and to make no mean contributionto the healing art. It is a rather interestingfact that the occasion for this discovery, theoriginal impulse to it arose not in the medi­cal school nor in the medical sciences, butin commerce and in botany. A Wisconsinflorist, observing that his flowers witheredmuch more rapidly when shipped to Chicagothan when sent to other cities, asked theDepartment of Botany at the University ofChicago to find out why. It was soon dis­covered that these flowers were anaesthe­tized by a certain gas prevailing in thestreets of the city of Chicago, and a furtherstudy of this anaesthetic proved that it washelpful to dogs and human beings."Dr. Luckhardt has been granted leave ofabsence by the Board of Trustees to enablehim to accept the invitation of the GeneralEducation Board to go abroad for a year oftravel and research. Dr. Luckhardt, WJ:1Oreceived the degrees of S.B., S.M., and Ph.D.from the University of Chicago, is famousfor his recent remarkable discovery of thenew anaesthetic, ethylene, which is alreadywidely used in hospitals and private practice.Need of Research in the Social Sciences"There is a widespread conviction," saidPresident Burton in the same address re­cently before the Chicago Association ofCoi:nmerce, "that unless there is a sufficienttransfer of interest in our thinking and inthe field of research from the physical towhat I may broadly call the human sciences,the physical sciences themselves carry withthem an element of danger. This danger liesin the fact that, if we go on learning moreabout explosives and more about poisongases and more about transportation andmore about communication of thought, anddo not also learn the great fundamental factsconcerning how civilization rose and fell,what are the social forces that affect thedevelopment of a nation and propel it up­ward or downward, what are the fundamen­tal principles in accordance with which menmust live, both individually and socially,there is great danger that civilization willperish, not by its excessive knowledge, butby its ill-balanced un symmetry of knowl­edge."If the real values of the world, whichultimately lie' in men and not in things, are mNOTESto be conserved and increased, there must,in these coming days, be a study of humansociety and human history as keen, as pene­trative, as far-reaching as the last fifty yearshave witnessed in the field of astrophysicsand bacteriology."Many Contributions for Research WorkA remarkable number of organizations andpersons are contributing toward the mainte­nance of research work now going on at theUniversity.

Hurley,sitting on t he cases of three suits againstthe U niversi ty which arose two years agowhen the Football Tickets committee re­fused to honor scalped tickets, handed downdecisions favoring the University in all threeof the cases.Together with the verdict, j udg e Hurleygave the attorneys for the brokers a scath­ing rebuke for attempting to put throughcases without adequate foundation. Beforethe case was considered the jurist had at­tempted to persuade the prosecution to with­draw their suits because of the meagernessof their case.The action of the court establishes a prec­edent in ticket scalping cases that have beenhanging fire for some time and clearly dem­onstrates that the University was within itsrights when it refused admission to footballgames to persons holding scalped seats.The decision was hailed by University au­thorities as marking the end of attemptedscalping in football tickets. The cases de­cided, and which serve as precedents for allcases coming up in the future, were three­McElroy vs. the University, Fruden vs. theUniversity and Deegan vs. the University.In each case the damages requested were$10,000.Extension Courses in ReligionDuring February and March there is beinggiven on Tuesday evenings in the HarperMemorial Library a series of extensioncourses in religion that are attracting wideattention.

G. Allen of the Ori­ental Institute. "The modern conception ofEgyptian life is more deception than con­ception: By no means were the Egyptian people muscle-bound or built at right angles.The people of those times were no morestiff-legged or awkward than we are, andthe ordinary movements and motions of thepeople were as natural as ours."The Egyptian friezes which we have inour possession sometimes show the char­acters in peculiar positions and awkwardpostures, but this may be attributed to, nottheir physical carriage or· bearing, but tothe Egyptian artist's ideas of perspective,similar to the futurist artists of today, inreproducing them."The Egyptian fashions as representedtoday are entirely inaccurate. Bizarre col­ors, peculiar figures, grotesque designs werefeatures entirely absent from the Egyptiandress. Toe Egyptian women, from picturesand information we have on hand, wouldhave scorned to wear the loud and grotesquedesigns that are today supposed to representEgyptian dress."New Address of American University Unionin ParisThe Bulletin of the American UniversityUnion, just issued, calls attention to the re­moval of the Paris office to more commodi­ous quarters at 173 Boulevard St. Germain,where students and professors visitingFrance will receive a cordial welcome fromthe Director, Professor Algeron Colman,(Chicago), and from Dr. H.

In the same year 2,607,000human infants were born in the UnitedStates-2,607,000 potential aspirants to col­lege privileges some eighteen years. later.Assuming that the factors on both sides ofthe equation of college availability will re­main constant, and ignoring the certaintythat some children who entered this countryin 1920 in the arms of immigrant parentswill outfoot some of the native children inthe race for education, not more than onein each seventy-one of the children bornhere in 1920 will receive a college diplomaat or about the year 1942.

The new Commerce andAdministration Building offers a real oppor­tunity to further such a spirit.An attempt has been made to give thebuilding the aspect of a clubhouse. At thetime the School of Commerce and Adminis­tration moved into its new home, the porchof the building was set aside as the recreationroom and common meeting ground of thestudents and faculty and their friend? Theporch is furnished with rugs, tables, com­fortable chairs, a victrola with records andbook-shelves. Here a house library has beenestablished. The library consists of a col­lection of books on history, poetry, biographyand fiction, containing some of the world'sbest literature. A piano has been placed inone of the larger class-rooms; a kitchenetteis now being equipped; and one of the smallerrooms on the first floor has been furnishedas the offices of the University Journal ofBusiness, the student publication, and theStudent Association, the student body organ­ization. The entire management of theserecreation rooms is in the hands of theStudent Association.Every Friday afternoon from four to sixthe porch is opened for a general good time.Tea is served by the girls of the Schoolunder the supervision of some of the wivesof the faculty. There is dancing to themusic of the victrola. Once a month an or­chestra is obtained and both the porch andlarge class-room are thrown open for danc­ing. The faculty, facuIty-wives and studentsattend these Friday afternoon affairs, mingleand enjoy themselves.Outside LecturesN at only has an attempt been made tofoster a spirit of cooperation between thefaculty and the undergraduate body butalso between the faculty and graduate body.Each quarter it is planned to hold a Faculty­Graduate dinner meeting with a speaker andinformal discussion. Two of these meetingshave been held this year. On December 14Professor von Schulze-Gavernitz, Universityof Freiburg, Germany, talked on "America'sWorld Mission."

A member of theCouncil is in general charge, each grouphas a student chairman, and each group hasas an adviser a member of the Faculty spe­cializing in that particular field.Groups have been organized in marketing,finance, personnel, accounting and produc­tion. The group organization is very flexible-a student may be a member of as manygroups as he wishes; and the Council willorganize groups in any other fields if asufficient body of students so desire.Each group attempts to hold two meet­ings a quarter, at which time it is ad­dressed by some executive in its field. Afterthe address an informal discussion is held.During the past quarter the marketinggroup was addressed by Mr. John Kneebones,Department of Market Analysis, Ladies'Home Journal, Curtis Publishing Company,Chicago, and Mr. D.

This outlet hasbeen partially provided for in the UniversityJournal of Business, the publication of whichwas begun over a year ago by the studentsof the School of Commerce and Adminis­tration in cooperation with the studentsof the schools of business of the Universityof Illinois, Indiana University, University ofMinnesota, I University of Nebraska, OhioState University, and the University of Wis­consin.The venture has been a highly successfulone from the viewpoint of circulation andfrom the viewpoint of the purpose for whichthe Journal was first published. A circula­tion has been built up not only on the cam­puses of the cooperating universities but alsoin the outside business world.

Prof. Woodwardread some poetry of his own composition,commenting upon the frailties of his fellowfaculty members. Dean Hall followed witha talk about the work of The American LawInstitute in attempting to restate the law.Each class then put on a short play.

About ninety dol­lars was .cleared, and after paying for thesubscriptions' to the papers in the smokingroom, the remainder was applied to theMechem Portrait Fund. The Good Old DaysThe Secretary of the Law School Asso­ciation made a trip east last summer, andwas handed the following transcript of ajudgment, which a friend claimed to havecopied verbatim from the court records atBedford, Pennsylvania. It is submitted with­out recommendation:"PROTHONOTARY COURT"OCTOBER SESSION 1782"PA. v.

Faith McAuley"Do I smell ginger cookies?" asks the'freshman girl who is being shown to herFrench classroom in Lexington by her se­nior adviser. The answer that I've mostoften heard is, "No, 1 don't believe so, 1t'Snot possible; this is Lexington Hall, for ill­erly the Women's Building." And so thefreshman, accepting without question, asfreshmen should, the expert guidance of herupper class man, in her turn later passes onto her freshman the same information, dis­regarding the numerous, subsequent olfac­tory reminders of pumpkin pie and cinna­mon rolls met with in the halls.Large numbers of the student body come,live for four years on the campus and be­come alumni, knowing nothing of many ofthe numerous activities of their university.It may be that the "tentacles of inqury" arenot functioning in the case of many studentsand then too, it may be that "It pays toadvertise" is not yet an academic slogan ofgood standing. One of the campus activitiesabout which little seems to be known is thefeeding of the campus "multitude" althoughit is not at all a dark secret.A - major reason for lack of knowledge inany field is lack of interest. This lack ofinterest has been especially evident in mat­ters of food. I t is true that the poet B ulwerLytton has pertinently remarked - about theimportance of cooks and their relation tocivilization, but he must be regarded as aprophet in the proverbial wilderness. Theimportance and significance of the servicerendered by the woman in the home, whoherself either prepares or supervises thedaily meals, are not yet appreciated. Thislack of appreciation is even more markedwhen the group served, instead of the home,is the larger community group. Only lackof appreciation can account for our _ willing­ness to turn over such important and com­plex a problem as the proper preparation offood to unskilled and untrained workers.The maladministration of food for the stu­dent group can quickly lower the generallevel of physical well-being and so impairmental achievement.Feeding of a student group presents spe­cial problems. The food must be adequate,wholesome, and as inexpensive as possible.It must present variety, and be attractive,since the enjoyment with which food is eatenis found to influence its digestion. Then, too,it must satisfy usua-lly a more or less cos­mopolitan group so that few members may long unduly for the flesh pots of home.Thus, hot bread, finnan haddie, sauerkraut,cornbread, or ham, each may have its placein giving special satisfaction to certain mem­bers 'Of a student group. In meeting theseproblems the director of the food unit for anycommunity group has the opportunity aridthe responsibility of rendering a vital socialservice.The demand for the trained individual asdirector of the fo·od and housing units of thelarge group is steadily increasing, and isresponsible for the courses in institutioneconomics which have been organized inthe leading colleges and universities of thecountry. Such work had its beginning in1890, when 1",rrs. Ellen H. Richards began inBoston, with Mrs. H. A. Abel assisting, herexperimental work later known as the NewEngland Kitchen. Four years later, in 1894,the Boston School Commission passed anorder which provided that only inspectedand approved foods should be sold in theschools of the city. As a result, the NewEngland Kitchen has for over thirty yearsbeen providing the food for the school lunchrooms of Boston.This work, with its emphasis on the scien­tific preparation of food, gradually extendedto ·other and various community groups, witha resulting demand for trained directors.Drexel Institute offered in 1899 the firstcourser in "Lunch room cookery;" other edu­cational institutions followed, beginning in­struction in institution economics as fol­lows:* 1902, Pratt Institute. Brooklyn, N.Y.; 1904, Simmons College, Boston, Mass.;1907, Teachers College of Columbia Uni­versity, New York City; 1907, MargaretMorrison of Carnegie Institute of Tech­nology, Pittsburgh.

Chicago, Ill.; 1910,Battle Creek Sanitarium, Battle Creek, Mich.From 1910 to the present the growth ofthe educational phase has been extremelyrapid, both as to the number of collegesintroducing the work and in the number ofcourses organized.Prior to 1913 the several lunch rooms anddormitories of the University of Chicago"F'r orn Master's thesis, "The Development and Pres­ent Status of' Instruction in Institution Economics,':by Katherine McFarland.INSTITUTION ECONOMICS ON THE CAMPUSwere 'Operated separately. In that year thedirection of the lunch' room 'of the Collegeof Education was assumed by a member ofthe faculty. Gradually other units wereplaced under the same control and by 1915the lunch room of the College of Education,Lexington lunch room, the Women's Hallsand the Men's Commons, were all being op­erated from a single office. The operation.of the Commons for both men and womenfrom a central point has made possible largequantity production with resultant loweringcost. The use of standardized formulas isalso made possible and insures the produc­tion of products of unvarying quality inknown amounts, and the elimination of muchwaste. The various units of the Commonsare supervised by members of the facultywho constitute the Commons staff and sharethe administrative duties. This administra­tive work involves as major activities thedirection of workers, purchase and ca�e ofsupplies, supervision of the preparation offood, and careful accounting.Seven food units are at present operatedfrom the central office in Lexington Hall.Three of these serve six dormitories forwomen; three serve the cafeterias of H utch­irison I:Iall, Ida Noyes, and the College ofEducation ; the seventh serves a club the"U High" for the boys of the U niv�rsitvHigh School. Lunch is also served in th-eprimary room to the children of the primarygrades, the food being prepared in the cafe­teria kitchen of the College of Education.A central store room, located in Lexing­ton Hall, is used for supplies of the standardgrocery type. These supplies bought inwholesale amounts, are here broken up andissued upon demand to the various kitchens,in the amount required.A meat shop is also operated in Lexing­ton Hall. Meat ordered on the previousday is received early in the morning, pre­pared for use. and sent out to each of thefood units. The amount of business doneby the campus shop exceeds that of theaverage retail market, running from $4,000 to$6,000 per month, depending on the season.The meat used, exclusive of fish, averagesabout 19,000 pounds per month. In June,1923, for example, 19,066 pounds costing$4,807.67 were consumed. Six months later,in January, 1924, the records show 19,776pounds purchased at a cost of $4,873.50.The source of the ginger cooky odor, thebake shop, is also located in Lexington Hall.This is an efficient unit, equipped with a dou­ble-decked oven, dough 'mixer, proof box.dough divider, cooling racks, steam-jacketedcooker, and refrigerator for holding pie fill­ings, milk, butter. etc. The bake shop, operating continuously' both day and night,makes all of the breads and pastries usedby' the Commons, except for a short periodin mid-summer when a limited amount ofbread is purchased. An average day's out- is!>put gives some idea of the contribution madeby this unit.Bread-white ' 120 loaves.

This service, for ex­ample, delivers hot rolls to dormitories andcafeteria every morning at six-thirty, andcakes, cookies, pies and breads, fresh fromthe oven are again delivered for the twelveo'clock luncheon.Two small laundries, fitted with manglesand the other necessary equipment, are alsooperated where the Commons linens arccared for.An electrically operated ice chopper andfreezer, and a concrete "cave" for holdingthe frozen products, make possible the pro­duction of creams and ices. During theSummer Quarter the daily output runs fromtwenty to thirty gallons.A second aspect of the work of institu­tion economics is the educational. TheCommons staff. in addition to administrativeduties, present the courses in institution eco­nomics, the kitchens, bake shop, market,laundries, and cafeterias, serving as lab-ora-tories. ..Courses in institution economics have beenrapidly introduced in the leading colleges andu iiver sities, especially in the last six or sevenyears. This parallels the modern tendencytoward large group living in our cities withthe consequent demand for individualstrained to organize and manage the housingand feeding of large groups. A new reali­zation of the relationship existing betweenproper living conditions and physical well­being is. also probably responsible for therapid development in this field. The firs!course in institution economics at the Uni­versity of Chicago, as indicated earlier, wasgiven in 1910 and was a general course called"Institutional Problems." The number ofcourses offered has increased to fourteen,the following fields being emphasized: 1,Problems in large quantity food prepara­tion; 2, organization and management; 3,equipment; 4, food purchase; 5, practice man,agement; 6, research.With the exception of four courses. in­cluding a course in practice management,the work is of graduate level. A study madeof the registration for the Summer Quarterof 192'2 showed a total enrollment of 57 inthe six courses offered. Of this number 24,or 42.10 per cent, were graduate students.The work. then, of institution ec·onomicshas two phases. First, the administrative,186 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEwhich concerns itself with feeding the stu­dent. The aim is to provide a wholesome.adequate, palatable, satisfying diet. The so­cial needs are also not overlooked and animportant service is "rendered in catering tothe various campus organizations. In themonth of October, 1923, for example, a totalof 1,187 banquet services were prepared forseventeen different campus organizations.Incidentally, too, a definite effort is madeto provide student service for those who mayfind this desirable; eighty-three are at pres­ent employed in various capacities by theCommons, This student service is often ex­tended at the inconvenience of the Commons,the employment of regular full-time workersusually presenting less difficulty.The second phase of the work of institu­tion economics, the educational, has from thebeginning grown with and been an intimatepart of, the administrative. The courses ininstitution economics are organized and pre­sented to meet the needs of students prepar­ing for administrative work and of teachersof college courses in institution economics.Many of the graduates have gone into thecommercial field, but the largest number arein high schools and colleges. Thus' the U ni­versity is represented through its graduatesat such representative schools as San DiegoHigh School, Wyoming Agricultural College.University of Texas, Kansas AgriculturalCollege, Iowa Agricultural College, U niver­sity of Wisconsin, Indiana State UniversityIndiana Agricultural College, University ofTennessee, University of Kentucky, CarnegieInstitute of Technology, and the LincolnSchool of New York City.• __ 0_"_"_"_.'_111_.'_"_'._ .. _'._"_1111_ ti The Chicago Dinner fI ,+ 11- ... -11.-.1-111-,,- .. -.,,_ ... - •• -.1-1.- •• - •• -,,+Director Judd escorted President Burtonto his place of honor at the speakers' table,four hundred alumni from thir tv-two statesrose in ovation, and the big Chicago dinnerheld annually in connection with' the meet­ings of the Department of Superintendenceof the National Education Association was011.

True enough, the Deanbegan with the potential power of Niagara,the stream of students flowing through thedoors of our summer session and out overthe Mississippi Valley, our unexampled op­portunity to influence the educationalthought of the nation. Dean Gray informedthe alumni that there were over 8,000 courseregistrations in the College of Educationlast summer and indicated the geographicdistribution of the students by referring toone course in which forty-four states wererepresented.Mrs. H. R. Vail performed exquisitely onthe violin,. accompanied by Mr. Vail, andthe alumni, according to the general under­standing were ready for the fresh strawberryice cream. Dean Laing attended to this.Hiatus in the reporter's story. In the midstof the hilarity that accompanied DeanLaing's offering, the reporter rolled off hischair and spilled his notes. The rest of thetime he forgot to write anything. He re­calls happily enough, however, that theCHICAGO DINNER-BOOK NOTICEDean expressed a belief in what might bedesignated a proper pedagogic approach.This was admission enough to make a clas­sicist welcome in a stronghold of moderneducators. The two Smiths illustrated thepoint. Both were professors-one of sys­tematic theology, the other of organic chem­istry. A student of chemistry got intothe class of the wrong Smith. After ninedays of bewilderment with intermittent butfeeble flashes of something that seemed likeillumination, he discovered the real difficulty.In summarizing his remarks Dean Laingurged his teacher audience to be mission­aries, preserve the humane elements in edu­cation, and watch the appointments to teach­ing positions.Dr. Judd confined his remarks to two ofthe major movements for the improvementof the University. He referred to the plansfor the expansion of the university libraries,on the one hand, and the program for in­creased attention to student needs, on theother. The system of selective admissionand the "Better Yet" movement illustratethe recent promising trend in methods ofdealing with the problems of instruction andguidance at the University."For decades and for centuries,Her battlemented tow'rs shall rise,"all sang in final solemn concourse.Frederick S. Breed. 187Immigration"A journey in the steerage should be oneof the first subjects of study for Americanstudents of immigration," says ProfessorEdith Abbott, the new Dean of the Gradu­ate School of Social Service Administrationat the University of Chicago. With thisexperience in mind Dean Abbott has assem­bled in her new volume on "Immigration",to be published by the University of Chi­cago Press, laws, reports from organizationsand individuals, and a remarkable set ofsocial case records. Typical documents ofthe attempted regulation of steerage condi­tions tell the story of early emigrant shipsfrom 1751 to 1882, and reports frorn ourmodern commissions show the conditions ofthe twentieth-century journey.The admission, exclusion, and expulsionof aliens are dealt with in the second partof the book, and domestic immigration prob­lems in the third.This collection of material will make itpossible for large numbers of students touse conveniently an important series of doc­uments heretofore accessible to only a few.and will, for the first time, make availablea body of unpublished case records of greatsignificance in the field of immigration.188 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OF THE CLASSE SAND ASSOCIATIONSCollege Association Notes'75-Herbert A.
