'16, whoreturned from China last fall, to accept 'the appointment as Professorof Medicine at the University and take part in the organization of thenew Medical School. A note on his present work and the plans for theMedical School appears in this number of the Magazine:University of ChicagoMagazineTheVOL. XVI No.6APRIL, 1924�EVENTS &� �COMMENT�An article appears in this number, entitled"Humanizing the College," which is theaddress recently delivered byHumanizing Dean Ernest H. Wilkins beforethe College the Chicago Alumnae Club andthe Peoria Alumni Club. Asnoticed in this number, Dean Wilkins willdeliver an address on the same subjectbefore the Chicago Alumni Club in May.This article which merely sketches the plansand purposes to "humanize" the Colleges atthe University, will be of deep interest notonly to the Alumni of our Colleges but alsoto all of our Alumni who are interested inpresent-day developments in the larger edu­cational institutions.In recent years, as many universities grewgreat in buildings and equipment and at­tendance, it became generally recognizedthat one of the valuable assets of highereducation-a somewhat close and personalcontact between faculty and students-wasbeing lost. The small college, of course;retained this desirable contact, but thecolleges in the great universities wererapidly losing it almost entirely. A numberof institutions began trying out adjustmentswithin the past few years, in an attempt toremedy this situation. When PresidentBurton came into office he at once an­nounced, as part of his program, a definiteplan to improve the situation at Chicago.His plan aims to go further than any here­tofore announced at any American uni­versity-to establish a group of small col­leges in which, as is the case at Oxford, avery close contact between student andteacher may be obtained. The general aimis to create "human" relationships in a largee01.1cational institutionAs an immediate step toward that objec­tive, Dean Wilkins has been conducting anumber of experiments and instituting var- ious features and movements that alreadyhave brought pronounced results. His ad­dress outlines some of these features andindicates the general direction and progressof the movement. The movement at theUniversity has now revealed such definiteand original characteristics that Chicago hassuddenly become, in a large measure, aleader among universities in the effort towin back the greatly desirable '.'human"contacts and relationships. We commend amost attentive reading of Dean Wilkins'address to all of our Alumni. We knowthey will be pleased to note the significantdevelopments at the University that itoutlines.* * *Our March page on Athletics records a fineathletics record for the winter quarter justended. With a tie for the Confer­Winter ence championship in one majorSports sport, basketball, and three cham-pionships in three minor sportscredited to Chicago, the record is certainly"gratifying." The three minor sports inwhich Chicago. came out first are WesternConference water-basketball (for the thirdyear in succession), Western ConferenceGymnastics, in which sport Chicago has foryears been a leader, and Western Intercol­legiate Fencing, a comparatively new sportat Chicago. Chicago tied for the basketballchampionship with Illinois and Wisconsin.The basketball season of 1924 was un­questionably the best in the history of thatsport in the Western Conference. Of theten teams competing, five or six of themheld first place temporarily at one time or'another during the season, while the otherteams managed to insert "upsets" with suchfrequency that it was usually impossible tomake even reasonably "safe" predictions on205206 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe outcome of any game. Many of thegames were won by less than three or fourpoints, a number were won by but one point,sometimes in the last few seconds of play,and over-time contests occurred severaltimes. I t was exactly the kind of a seasonthat makes best for the welfare of the game.In seasons where one or two teams earlyprove far superior to the others and a "run­a way" race develops, a game loses much ofits interest and the general welfare of thatparticular sport is not well advanced. But,as was the case this year in basketball, wherepractically all teams have a <chance, whereleadership rapidly changes, and where everygame proves important, the sport wins andretains throughout the season a muchgreater degree of interest. As evidence ofthat sustained interest, by far the greatestcrowds in Conference basketball history, theattendance sometimes approaching 10,000,witnessed this year's games. We hope theWestern Conference witnesses more andmore o-f such close and evenly-matched con­tests, not only in basketball but in all otherbranches of athletics..* * *In connection with our comment on se­lection of students, in our last number, thefollowing extract from the firstUndesirable report of President Angell ofStudents Yale University, as publishedin a recent issue of the YaleAlumni Weekly, will prove of interest. Presi-dent Angell says: ,"There is a wide-spread feeling abroad inthe country that too many students are nowgoing to college who cannot, or do not,profit greatly by the experience, while theirpresence puts upon the colleges a heavyunjustifiable burden. There is perhaps somewarrant for this view and Yale has probablyhad her share of students of this type. Merelimitation of numbers is no corrective forthis difficulty. Improvement in the methodsof selection offers the only intelligent meansof excluding the unfit, and this we hope tobe able to accomplish. In any event, wemean to make intellectual accomplishmentand promise the primary criterion of selec­tion, with due regard to sound character andthose other qualities which make' for fineand wholesome types of personality. Injudging applicants, we shall bring to bearall the evidence we can command from allthe sources known to us."Some friends of the University are fear­ful that by such 'an arbitrary limitation weshall discourage good men from applying,especially those living at a distance. Wesee no reason to fear this consequence onany serious scale and, should it appear tobe resulting, we shall doubtless take stepsto correct the difficulty. We are wholly un­willing to jeopardize the present country­wide distribution of our students; and par­ticularly do we wish to retain and developcontacts with the great public schoolswhose students are most likely to be unnec- essarily sensitive to any apparently restric­tive devices."Strange to say, there is another bodyof opinion which resents the exclusion bythe University of the wholly unstudiousboy whose record affords . little or no rea­son to believe that he can or will carry theburden of serious university work. This ob­jection is apt most often to come from theparents of boys whose home surroundingshave done nothing to stimulate respect for,or interest in, intellectual accomplishment.To them college life is a more or less <;I-t­tractive social experience for which the priceis a certain minimum of intellectualachievement-an achievement often largelyvicarious, thanks to clever tutors andcoaches. Whether an institution like Yalecan properly be asked seriously to com­promise her standards for the occasionalyouth of this kind is a question which hasonly to be formulated in order to discernthe answer. If our great universities cannotfoster intellectual distinction, if they areto be smothered in mediocrity,' they willhave failed of their great opportunity inthe life of our democracy; and while decis­ion on the individual case must always be amatter of practical judgment, the right andwisdom of rejecting the unfit can hardly bechallenged. It may be that we shall cometo adopt some such distinction as thatwhich, in the English universities, marksoff the 'honors' man from the 'pass' man;but, even so, if too low a standard be setfor the 'pass' man the whole intellectualtone of the institution must inevitably beundermined."* * *Alumni Day, Saturday, June 7th, willrecord the special anniversaries of a numberof our best organized classes,Class particularly those of laterAnniversaries years. We hope, howeverthat the earlier classes-suchas '74, '94, '99, and '04-which are not sowell organized, will duly observe the veryimportant "milestones" in their class history.The stressing of the special class anniver­saries at our annual June gatherings wasbegun successfully several years ago, orbetter, several Reunions ago. The variousanniversary classes, since that plan was in­augurated, have rallied with special effortand generally have won distinction at theJune gatherings. It would be unfortunateindeed if this class tradition, now so wellb-egun, were not properly continued andadvanced next June by the classes respon­sible for such special showings this year.'-IVe know of no particular reason why theanniversary classes of this year can not doas well as the others who have thus farappeared in the Reunion spotlight. Webelieve they can-and will. To be sure,though-we urge their members to beginplanning, at once. Get together-makegood-for your class, and for Chicago!ALUMNI AFFAIRSALUMNIDean Mathews Addresses New LexingtonClubDr. Shailer Mathews, Dean of the DivinitySchool of the University of Chicago, washonor guest and principal speaker at theChicago Alumni Club banquet Saturdaynight, March 8, at the Lafayette hotel ballroom and attended by 40 former studentsor alumni of the University of Chicago.Other guests of honor were Dr. Frank L.McVey, president of the University of Ken­tucky and Mrs. McVey; Dr. A.

M.Huntington, (Kathryn Williams, '13) 233Ashland Ave., River Forest, Ill. Secretary,Mrs. Ralston Lewis, (Virginia Foulk, '14)229 N. Cuyler Ave., Oak Park, Ill. Treas­urer, Miss Louise Apt, '22, 181 N. GroveAve., Oak Park, Ill.Among our activities we include a scholar­ship for a former Oak Park High School girlwho is now a student at the University ofChicago. .Our membership is composed of alumnaewho live in the West Suburban towns ofOak Park, River Forest, Berwyn, etc.Our program for the year has been greatlyvaried and interesting. Meetings are held onthe second Wednesday of each month fromOctober to May at two-thirty, although ourprograms usually begin at three-thirty to al­low our several teacher members to comeafter school. October tenth Miss KatherinePaltzer entertained at her home, 304 N. OakPark Ave., most of the afternoon beingdevoted to discussion of plans for the N 0-vember meeting. Mrs. Thomas Bumsted of511 Park Avenue, River Forest, opened her.home on November 14 for a musicale andDramatic Recital. the proceeds of which willmore than pay the tuition of our "ward" atthe University .. The dramatic recital wasgiven by two talented pupils of Miss BerthaIles and the musical number by Mrs. M. R.McDaniel and Coe Pettit. At last year'smeetings our members sewed for the studentwhom they were helping but this year ourhelp was needed in another form; and.hoping to divert some of that useful energyto another worth-while enterprise, we hadMrs. George Davidson come to talk to usabout the "Economy Shop" of Oak Park, atthe home of Mrs. Sherman Spitzer. 220 S.Euclid Avenue. In January we were more than fortunate in having Miss Alice Green­acre to talk to us about "The Chicago Alum­nae Club." This meeting was held at thehome of Mrs. Charles Higgins, 203 ForestAvenue, Oak Park. Tea was served at theclose of each of these meetings.The February meeting was a slight de­parture from our usual procedure; it washeld on Saturday, February sixteenth, atthe home of Miss Gertrude Anthony, 694534th Street, Berwyn. A valentine luncheonwas served and the afternoon spent atBridge or Mah J ongg. "Our March meeting will be at the homeof Mrs. Ralston Lewis on the twelfth andwe expect to have Mrs. Donald Campbell(Kathleen Foster) to entertain us with"Irish Plays and Folk Songs." Apriltwelfth we are planning a tea at the Univer­sity for senior girls in Oak Park HighSchool. May fourteenth, the annual elec­tion of officers will take place at the homeof Mrs. Vincent M. Huntington in RiverForest. Sincerely yours,Mrs. Arthur L. Wanner(Lucinda Obermeyer, -ex '21)Press ChairmanIndianapolis Alumni Club Me'etingThe Indianapolis University of ChicagoClub held its monthly luncheon at HotelLincoln, Saturday, March 1, with the Presi­dent Walter Gingery, presiding.Sixteen people-including one guest­were present and found it worth while ifvolume and continuity of flow of conversa­tion can be - used as measuring sticks. Theletters of President Burton and Mr. Linnwere discussed and this led to other asso­ciated topics. After luncheon a member, theReverend Walter Ewing, gave a short andtimely talk on what he chose to speak as"The Bull in the China Shop."

At the luncheon preceding(unreported through secretarial "sloth") Al­van Dittrich, ex '23, talked to the other mem­bers present on "Interstate Public Service."That same day we all but had a young lion_:_though otherwise labeled-in the person ofEmily Taft, of the Cat and Canary Company,then playing in Indianapolis. Unfortunately,Miss Taft's duties made it necessary for theClub to content itself with a reported inter­view delegated to a small committee.At our next getting together, on March29, we hope to persuade "Pat" Page to leavehis Butler activities long enough to comeand tell us what he thinks about athletics.Mabel Washburn, '18,Secretary.ALUMNI AFFAIRSDean Wilkins Addresses Peoria ClubOn the evening of February 29th, the Uni­versity of Chicago Club of Peoria gatheredat the University Club rooms for the mid­winter banquet. This was one of the mostpleasant occasions which the Club has everexperienced, very largely made so by thegenial presence _ of Dean Ernest H. Wilkins,who was kind enough to come to tell us ofthe work which is being done now at theUniversity in the direction of "Humanizingthe College."After the excellent dinner provided by themanagement at the University Club, thePresident, Mr. C. C. Dickman, introducedDean Wilkins, who gave us much to thinkabout in his interesting account of doings atthe University. It gave us a genuine thrillto hear of the very great advance which isbeing made in rendering the college a trulyhuman institution, and to realize it is ourown University which is leading in thismovement.Before the meeting, an effort was made tofind out whether any former Chicago peopleare now in surrounding towns, within aradius of seventy-five miles. We hope to beable to do more in this as time goes on.In the meantime, if any who are reading thisaccount, happen to be of this group, will younot be good enough to send your names andaddresses to the secretary in Peoria?

His address wasso packed with facts revealing the new spirit abroadin the University and controlling- its administrationthat it has been reported. We are pleased to presentit to all of our readera.e=Ed.]The justification and purpose of any uni­versity's existence is to contribute to thewelfare of society. The fundamental objectof the undergraduate college is to developcharacter by increasing knowledge andpower to reason. But there are other meansfor the development of character besidesstudy.c=namely, athletics and college activi­ties.For the fulfilment of all these purposes,students must be treated as individuals, andmust be given a sense of their communityresponsibility.Out of this has grown this year an attemptto give the student training and practice incooperation, and to recognize him as an in­dividual.We began with admissions to the uni­versity. Heretofore, selection was more orless mechanical with little reference to theindividuality of the student. The newbasis takes into account not only his scholar­ship but his individuality. A questionnaire wasSent out with such questions as these: "Whatare your favorite amusements? How do youspend your vacations? What hobby, if any,do you have? In what student activities areyou interested? What sort of books, mag­azines, newspapers do you read? Of thethings you have accomplished, which havegiven you the most interest and satisfaction?"A space was left for a short autobiography.At registration time, the deans, armed withthese papers were ready to welcome eachFreshman 'with interest and understandingof him as an individual.The system is to be made applicable alsoto current records, for the benefit of all whocome in contact with the student. Theinstructor is to be introduced to his studentsthrough these reports instead of the slowprocess of class-room' identification.Another innovation came from Dr. Bur­ton. Before this year, there were five deans,each acting as adviser to aproximately fivehundred students. That was too manystudents for each dean. Now, through salaryincreases and official interest in the problem,the number of deans has been increased totwelve, each one adviser to some 250 stud­ents. Interviews are more human and re­lationships closer. Students have the samedean throughout the college course.But even 250 students per dean is too large a number, especially when a dean iscarrying full class-room work. It takes afreshman about two quarters to find himself;he needs and is entitled to more guidance.The staff of twelve acting deans should beincreased by a corps of assistant deans andadvisers, especially for Freshmen.Another step forward is the plan to givespecial time and energy to the ablest stud­ents. It is not fair to the superior studentfor the instructor to have to give 60 to 70per cent of his time to the lowest 10 percent. We are seeking to remedy that. By"the ablest students" we mean not neces­sarily the A or A minus students, but ·thestudents showing greatest promise. Aworking definition of such a student is this:"One who possesses to a notable degreemany of these qualities: health of body, ap­pearance, manner (bearing), attractiveness(charm), technical ability, power of expres­sion, power of initiative, ability to cooper­ate, moral cleanness, honesty, vision, loveof one's fellows, etc."In support of this program, reports onleading students are turned in twice a quarterto the dean's office. If all the instructorsreport well on a particular student, he issent a letter of commendation. He is givenspecial privileges, such as priority in regis­tration each quarter, exemption from classattendance, special courses, etc. Class sec­tions are made up on the basis of ability asshown by these reports.Cooperation is a fundamental element inany endeavor to build character. It is aninstinct which is tremendously strong in astudent body, as witness the sense for classunity and class spirit. Accordingly, thisyear, chapel has been arranged on a classbasis: Freshmen on Monday, Sophomores onTuesday, Juniors on Wednesday, and Senjorson Thursday. When class meetings arecalled, they may be held after chapel.Then, about student activities. On theathletic side, recognition of the human valueswas given long ago. But non-athletic activ­ities are just as rich in human values asphysical ones. Yet they have not beenbrought into official relationship with theUniversity,-with the result that they do notyield the student what they should, and thereis not the direction and supervision that isnecessary for good results. Consequentlythere is a tendency for the students tocarry them too far, and get into difficulties.For these reasons direction and supervisionare very essential: We hope to have direc­tors comparable to Mr. Stagg in athletics,supervising publications, dramatics. and allthe rest of the multitudinous activities.(Continued on page 221)CHICAGO DEANS 21Jr: .. - .. - .. -IIII- •• -MII_.I-Itfl-MI-I.-.I-MII-M.-NI-III_UI-UI-HM-U-U.- ..

H. HarveyThose who appear frequently "in thepublic eye" are by no means the only oneswho, in one way or another, are carrvinzon important and influential work. Thereare many at the Univer­sity, as well as . in theworld at large, whosework and services are ofsuch a nature as not tolend themselves readilyfor material in the publicpress. Among such atChicago is Professor Ba­sil C. H. Harvey, Deanof Medical Students anda Dean in the Colleges.Basil Coleman HyattHarvey is a Canadian bybirth and education. Hewas born at Ontario,Canada, in 1875, the sonof a physician. He at­tended grammar schoolat Watford, Ontario, pre­paratory school at Strath­roy, Ontario, and thenentered the University ofToronto. In 1894 he ob­tained his A. B. at theUniversity of Toronto,and then did a year ofgraduate work at NormalCollege of Nova Scotia.From 1895 to 1897, whilestudying medicine at the University ofToronto, he was Assistant Demonstrator ofAnatomy at that institution, and he obtainedhis M.D. degree at that University in 1898.In the same year of his graduation from theMedical School at Toronto he became amember of' the College of Physicians andSurgeons of Ontario.In 1901 Dr. Harvey came to the Uni­versity of Chicago as an Assistant in Anat­omy, and since that time, for twenty-threeyears, he has been on the Faculty of theMedical School at the University. Afterseveral yean, as Associate, he became anInstructor in 1904. In 1908 he was appointedAssistant Professor of Anatomy, in 1911Associate Professor, and in 1917 Professorof Anatomy, which chair he has sinceoccupied in addition to his administrativeservices in the Medical School.Professor Harvey has been a dean for thelast three years. He was first appointedDean in the College of Science in 1921; in 1923 he was appointed Dean of Medical Stu­dents, continuing also as a Dean in the Col­leges of Arts, Literature, and Science.Although his term as Dean has been short,thus far, he has stamped himself as an ableadministrator and as an officer who fullyappreciates the problemsthat confront studentsand is able to guide stu­dents toward sound andsuccessful work.Dr. Harvey was mar­ried in 1904 to Jan e tHinsdill Holt, of GrandRapids, Michigan. TheHarveys have one child,Mary, who was born in1907.Dean Harvey is a mem­ber of the Quadrangleand University clubs, ofthe American Associa­tion of Anatomists, theAmerican Association forthe Advancement ofScience of the Instituteof Medicine, of the Chi­cago Society of InternalMedicine, and for tenyears, 1912-22, was Presi­dent of the Demonstra­tors Association of Illi­nois. He is a member ofAlpha Kappa K a p p a,medical, and Sigma Xi,honorary scientific, fra­terrnties. He has taken an active part inthe programs and work of the various asso­ciations and societies to which he belongs.During the Great War he was, in 1917-1919, Captain and then Major in the MedicalDepartment of the U. S. Army, being ap­pointed Commandant of Schools, MedicalDepartment, 34th Division, at Camp Cody;afterward he served in Base Hospital 13,.with the American Expeditionary Forces.The medical students at the Universityhave always esteemed him as a friendly' andhelpful counselor. The medical section ofthe 1920' Cap and Gown was dedicated toProfessor Harvey, in which dedication thesewords are quoted from him:"Knowledge is useful and essential. Powerto make accurate observations and soundjudgments is worth more. A physician oweshis patient both. The greatest service isthat which adds to Science, for Science helpsall people and lasts forever."Dean Basil C. H.

BeachCragun, former director of the UniversityBand, all OF the lyrics have been preparedby the authors, Robert P. Pollak and JohnOppenheim, and specialty numbers are un­der consideration by J; Hamilton Coleman,producer of the show.Preliminary cast tryouts were h e I dWednesday; Feb. 27, at which forty-twomen were tentatively selected for furthertrial after eligibility was announced for theSpring quarter. Among the stars of formershows who were retained for the presentproduction were John Longwell, who ledlast year's comedy, "The Filming of Friars,"Leland Neff, who was a leading supporterof the same presentation, Bill Tilden, DonMacGinnis, Archie Trebow, Will Ghere,Ralph Helperin, Clark Shaw and Owen N u­gent. Among the promising men of thepresent Freshman class who tried out forthe first time are Lawrence Smith, AllenHeald, Allan Cooper, Bradley Davies andSeward Covert. All of these men gavesterling performances, and have previouslyproved themselves in many acts of campusvaudeville and dramatic club work.Several of the quaint and unique char­ters whom these men will represent areWilliam Shakespeare, Plato, Sir WalterRaleigh, a Cigar Counter Girl, Romeo, andQueen Elizabeth, besides a chorus of Greekphilosophers, and Elizabethan dandies.Chief among the writers of the music areWilliam Tilden, Nelson Fuqua. Leslie River,Robert Pollak, Karl Lilly, Frederick N eil­son and Gordon Smith. Both the music andthe lyrics are very satisfactory to Mr. Cole­man, who has many times stated that thecoming show is to be the best of all.W or k of the executive staff is progressing,rapidly under the direction of Bester Price,the Abbot. Some of the men prominent onthe staff are Maurice D. Kirk, Don S. Irwin,William Pringle, Paul Cullom, Leslie Riverand Tom Mulroy. The alumni are urged topurchase seats promptly and, as in the past,they will no doubt give the show great sup­port. Pledging by the women's clubs after twoquarters of rushing was the most interest­ing feature of the last month. In postponingthe pledging one quarter, the clubs followeda suggestion made by Dean Talbot lastspring, that the two weeks rushing bechanged and three-quarter rushing withpreferential bidding be substituted. TheQuadrangle club lead in pledging withtwelve women, Phi Beta Delta was secondwith eight, Chi Pho Sigma and MortarBoard followed with seven each, Wyvernwith .five, Phi Delta Upsilon with four, PiDelta Phi with three and Esoteric andDeltho with one each.The bidding and pledging proceeded onthe' fol.lowing system: each rushee submitteda list of the clubs to which she was beingrushed in a preferential order, numberingthem one; two, three, four, etc. The clubsalso submitted lists of the women rusheeson whom they had passed. Then the prefer­ential lists were reconciled with the clublists in that if a woman was on the biddinglist of. the club she preferred the most, shewas· pledged to that club. If she was noton the bidding list of her first preference, butwas ori the list of the second, she waspledged to the club of her second choice,and so on.Aside from the club pledging many otherimportant things happened. Blackfriar_ prac­tice was begun, the Cap and Gown went topress, Dean Wilkins announced a new planfor the reception of entering Freshmen inthe fall, and the University entertained sev­eral famous visitors. Senator Hiram J ohn­son spoke to the campus in Mandel hall onApril 4 under the auspices of the Under­graduate Political Science club, while Presi­dent James Rowland Angell of Yale Uni­versity lectured the previous evening on"The Place of Education in a Democracy."Both meetings were exceedingly well at­tended, in keeping with the celebrity of thespeakers.Dean Ernest H. Wilkins has planned tohave the entering Freshmen come to schoolone week earlier in the fall, before schoolopens, in order to complete every detail ofregistration and matriculation before actu­ally entering on the school year. The planhas been put forth by Dean Wilkins forsome time, and finally received the approvalof President Burton of the University. Thisscheme has been used for a long time inthe eastern colleges and has lately beenadopted by the universities of Michigan andWisconsin, where it is working extremely_ well. C. V. Wisner, Jr., '26;ATHLETICS 213Successful Winter Quarter in AthleticsWinter quarter, 1924, in many ways, hasbeen one of the biggest and most successfulsporting quarters in the history of the Uni­versity.

J anovswy .in mid-season dueto ineligibility.The Maroon water basketball sextet step­ped into its third consecutive Conferencechampionship when it defeated Wisconsin8 to 6 in a terrific battle at Madison. Thegame was annexed chiefly by the shiningperformance of Captain Greenabaum andGilchrist. The Chicago team won all itsgames, four in the Big Ten, and leads North- western's .750 with a clean slate, In non­Conference games, the Maroons have scored2.4 points �gail:st 11 by opposing aggrega­tioris, while 111 Conference tilts CoachWhite's men have marked up 47 tallies withonly 8 accredited to opponents.Western Fencing ChampionshipAn upset in championships occurredMarc)1 15, at Bartlett Gymnasium, when theVarsity fencers brought the sabre and foilsl?ort into its own at the University, by win-111ng the Western Intercol!egia te title incompetition with most other leading con­ference and middle western universities.Coach Merrill deserves especial credit for hiswork in developing a sport in which few ofthe team candidates have had any previousexperience.Table of PointsChicago, 8 points, 76 touches; Ohio State,8 POl?tS, 6? touches; Purdue, 7Yz; Illinois,5; Wisconsin, 2Yz ; Nebraska, 2; Iowa, 0,Conference Gymnastic ChampionshipAt the same time the fencing champion­ship was won, Maroon turners rehabilitatedthemselves in the gymnastic world by re­claiming the title, which went to Wiscon­sin last season, previous to which it hadbeen in Chicago's possession for two sea­sons. The Maroons won every event thisyear except the club swinging, and in theopinion of many should have been awardedthat event.The same statement made regarding fenc­ing, applies to gymnastics, namely, the show­ing of the team is due largely to the workof the Coach, in this case Daniel Hoffer,who has trained men who, before cominginto the University, had practically no ex­perience in the sport.Table of PointsChicago .. , .. ,1,189.5 Iowa .Purdue 987.5 Ohio State .Minnesota ,." 956 Ohio WesleyanWisconsin , 954 NorthwesternIllinois ., , 905Track and Intra-MuralsOther bright spots in the quarter weret.he victories of Joe Russel and Bruce Mac­Farlane in the high jump and 440 respec­tively, at the Big Ten track meet at North ..western on March 15, and the installationof the new intra-mural program.The new intra-murals, though unproduc­tive in the realm of "championships," have(Continued on page 237) 829815726372'.5214 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHlCAGO MAGAZINE1"''''''''''''8''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''·'''''''''''''''"10,.''''''''"'''''"''''.'''''''''""''''UI',,",'''''''''''",�III''''' •• '''''''.Hm''''''·''''""''''·'''''''''''''8''''''''''''''"'iI:@ The Letter Box :@ I':.1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111II1I1I"1II1II""IIIIfIIllIllU""I1II1"I11I1H1"I1I11"I11"I11I11I1I11"I11I11I11II1I1I11I11IUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIH1l11l11l1l11mllllllllllllllllllli�We Are Glad to Print ItM'ontevallo, Alabama.Dear Mr. Editor:I think many, many times of the dear oldU. of c., and of the four years which Ispent as a student within its walls.I am enclosing a little "squib" which ifyou think worthy of a place in our AlumniMagazine you may use, otherwise you maydrop it in the waste basket.I thoroughly enjoy the Magazine.

The Pub­lic Schools of New York City gave $38,000,chiefly in dimes and nickels. The police ofthe same city contributed $7,00(:}. Otherdonations were received. The undergrad­uate students of many institutions under­took to raise funds, and substantial re­sponses were received from Annapolis, WestPoint, Amherst, Cornell, Columbia, BrynMawr, Harvard, Yale, Pennsylvania, andother colleges, and from many preparatoryschools. A total of nearly $400,000 wasreceived and a round million dollars was andstill is wanted. For the lack of $600,000, thework is now suspended and as the tenthanniversary of the destruction of Louvainapproaches, there is only an unfinishedarchitectural fabric to show for the high andgenerous intention of our institutions oflearning. Although the promises were madewhen the War was still less dim .in ourmemories than it is at present, we still havea very firm responsibility to wipe out this,one of the last of our war-born obligations.THE ALUMNI of our institutions, how­ever, have done nothing until just recently,when the Haruord 'Alwmni Bulletin, realizingthe urgency of the need for discharging themoral debt by the educated American public,of its own volition undertook to apprizeHarvard men of the situation. By callingfor voluntary contributions to be applied. toward the reconstruction of the LouvainLibrary, over $30,000 has been received, inamounts from $1,00 up. This excellenteffort has suggested to me the fact that thealumni magazines of the country representa tremendous force of' educated publicopinion, and that if the several magazineswill undertake to present this case to theirrespective constituencies in the proper light,the' enormous number of American collegeand university graduates will, at their owninstitutions, see to it that the alumni ofthose institutions will be given ample oppor-216 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEtunity to assist in the collection of thenecessary funds.If I may be so bold as to suggest it, willyou, as editor of your alumni publication,call this matter to the, attention of youralumni in your news columns, and person­ally urge upon the executive or the govern­ing. committee of your central alumni asso­ciation that something be done at once topresent this to the entire body of yourgraduates?This letter is written by me, acting in adual capacity. As Editor of the ColumbiaAlumni News) r am glad to state that my ownpaper has just introduced this subject toColumbia men. As President of AlumniMagazines Associated, I believe this projectis of sufficient importance to bring it to theattention of every alumni editor in thecountry, and I shall be glad to furnish acomplete description of the economical andeffective procedure which the HarvardAlumni Bulletin adopted and which Colum­bia has followed.Sincerely yours,Columbia Alumni News,Levering Tyson,Editor(Note: This letter and its appeal will have specialinterest for the Alumni of the University of Chicago,because of the fact that, at a special Convocation onOctober 22, 1919, the University conferred thehonorary degree of Doctor of Laws upon CardinalMercier.

The Jordans arrived last Thursday.They had a little trouble in coming thruthe Caucasus, but the Bolos did finally letthem out after having wasted not more thantwo weeks of their time. There was, how­ever, a lot of uncertainty connected with itall, Believe me everybody was glad to seethem. You have no idea of the place in thehearts of these Persians which Dr. and Mrs.Jordan fill. The boys in the boarding depart­ment all refer to him as "Our really father."We just had a wonderful trip. We walkedabout a hundred and twenty miles, but therewere mules to carry our luggage. Therewere eight of us on the trip, besides onecook and two charvadars (muleteers). Westarted at six in the evening and walked tillfour in the morning, with a two hours' restand some food at a tea-.house on the road.There was a fine moon and the travelling ismuch more pleasant in the cool of the nightthan in the heat of the day. We spent the nextday sleeping in a small village, holding meet­ings and seeing inquirers, that is, doing whatwe call "itinerating." That evening westarted out again. This time we had a very high pass tocross. The Persians call such a place agarden, which means "neck." It gets you inthe neck and every place else, too. Afterfour hours of steady climbing we quicklydropped down into the extensive plain ofthe Lar. We stopped for food and rest ata tea-house and then pushed on. The nextbit 'Of travel was easy, but long and drawnout. r t was a soft dusty trail over this vastlevel plain, and was quite a rest after thehard rocky climb. But the last lap was along one, anyway, and we did not turn inuntil four again that morning.In the morning I was rudely awakened bythe hot sun on my face and the welcome cryof, "Cha-ee," the word for tea, which alsomeans breakfast. Our camp was 'On the bankof the Lar River and I could not get myselfreally awake until I stripped and plungedinto the icy stream. We were way up inthe mountains and this water was not farremoved from snow. The dip woke me upall right and over-sharpened my appetite, sot.hat I could hardly get enough to eat. Butthe tea, barley bread and sheep's milk havea way of filling a person whether it isserved in style 'Or not.The daylight gave us a chance to see whatour new quarters looked like. The first thingthat struck us was wonderful Demavend,with its saintly. snow-covered slopes, 20,000feet high, towering above the lesser crestsand ranges. On each side 'Of us were steep,rocky hills while back to the west stretchedthe plain of the Lar. This place was called"Chehell Cheshmeh," which is Forty Springs.We stayed there a day and a half. Thefirst day we rested of course, and the secondmorning three of us hopped onto the mulesand jogged over to some black tents whichI had seen the night before from the top ofone of those rock hills close by our camp.We found there two camps, one of abouttwenty-five tents and the other fifty. To­gether they must have included at least 300people. These folk are called "Black Tent­ers." Here we bought some cheese, matzoon,a kind of specially prepared sour milk, tooksome pictures and dispensed some medicine.r became the doctor.

Here wefound other Black Tenters, and what wasmore, there was a wedding celebration goingon. We sent a couple of the Persians of ourparty down to see whether by any hook orcrook or gift or anything else we could getpermission' to visit the celebration. We donot hold ourselves responsible for whatthese people told the Black Tenters, but weTHE LETTER BOX-MOUNTAINEERING IN PERSIA 217got permission anyway. What we saw vyasnot so wonderful, but the remarkable thingis that we were treated as honored guest?There is probably no other member of thisstation who has seen what we saw and notmore than one in a hundred of the boys inthe school has had the same experience.After we had .had supper, we went downto their camp. For an hour or more we hadheard the music, a big, flat drum, and acouple of squeaky, wooden horns, and wewere bursting with excitement. They hada campfire, an unusual t�ing in these parts,of dried weeds. Wood IS not to be foundthere. We had not seen a tree since we leftthe town. We made our salaams to thevillage chiefs, and rugs were brought forus to sit upon.. close to the fire, where wecould watch the dancing. Of course, therewere only men present; the women behind,off in the darkness, trying to peep thru andsee what they could of the festivities. Agroup of eight or ten men with. ar�s locked,were doing some sort of a swingrng, cross­step and moving in a circle about the fire.Then they had a solo dancer with a tallfancily decorated hat, and he went thru aset of grotesque and indescribable m\>ve­ments which the men all seemed to considervery amusing. VVe soon had enough of thisand went back to camp.In the morning the chiefs came out to ourcamp shortly after breakfast, and we pro­ceeded to make them feel quite at home, an dshowed them every blessed thing we had,from repeating rift.es and arn�y pistols downto safety pins. We took their pictures, andthen they invited us down to the wedding,We accepted with great pleasure and w�ntdown to watch the fun. They were havinga game of leap-frog. They call it "t�e kickthat kills four." We took a lot of pictures,let the chief's shoot our guns, and gotacquainted with them generally.Then came part of the wedding cere­monies. There was a procession headed bythe groom and his best men, some otherscarrying big trays of gifts, the dowry, andbehind them came a crowd of womep dane­ing. The musicians were along the Side Withtheir wailing horns and their big tomtom.The procession moved around to a smallthrone prepared for the groom. Here th.eyset him down and proceeded to dress himin a complete, new se.t of �lothes after cut­ting his hair and shaving him. This was alldone in the most solemn manner and afterthat several women and a few men cameup and kissed him on each cheek: T_heneveryone filed past and dropped gifts intohis lap, and we joined in with o?r hu�bleofferings a looking glass and' a t111 whistle.Short ly after this we had din�er.. Andmost remarkable of all, we were invited tosit at the head of the table, �hich was. thefloor and eat right there With the; chiefs.Carpets were laid in a long narrow tent,and about fifty men sat down there on the ground. We were served in our own campdishes and ate with spoons. The tribesmenall ate with their fingers, very neatly too.First a bowl was placed before them andthen a man poured water from a specialsilver pitcher or flask, while the one whowas thus served held out his right hand andrinsed his fingers in the stream of waterfrom the pitcher. Then a very large metalplate ()f pillowe was placed before each pairof men and with the words, "Bis-rnil-lah,""In the name of God," they fell. to. Thefood was the usual fare, only more of it,boiled rice, boiled mutton and some vege­tables cooked up with it. Then afterwardswe had "dughe" to drink. That is mahstwell mixed with water. To finish up witheach man had a puff or two on :.\ big pipeof tobacco. After this we thanked themheartily, excused ourselves, and went backto camp where we proceeded to pack up foranother move. But we were not through,for they flocked out to camp again and manyof them wanted me to examine them andcure them of their many ills. I felt theirpulses and gave them pills so bitter theycould not swallow them, and left them infine spirits. Just before we went, severalmen came dashing past on their horsesshowing us their ability. as horsemen. Thehorses were pretty fast and some of theriding was very good.That afternoon' we moved off to the westthrough a narrow, rocky defile where wehad to walk up the stream bed for there wasno other way. Once we had to go througha tunnel of snow. All along the way wesaw more Black Tenters, but bothered themnot since we figured we had seen all thatt.here was to be seen in the life of the blacktents.

Among the dis­tinguished lecturers from Europe who willtake part in the Summer Quarter programwill be Professor Herbert Krause, of theUniversity of Konigsburg ; Professor Charlesde Visscher, of the University of Ghent; SirValentine ChiroI, formerly with the BritishForeign Office; and Professor Ramsay Muir,of Manchester University. They will dis­cuss present conditions and policies of Eu­rope.There will be in addition to the lectures,which will occur every afternoon from June25 to July 18, a conference consisting ofthese lecturers, resident professors in thefield of foreign relations, local business men,bankers, etc., interested in foreign relations,and, it is hoped, representatives of the State,Navy, War, and other departments at Wash­ington. This conference will be 'under thechairmanship' of some distinguished Amer­ican and will discuss some topic of presentEuropean politics. Some of its sessions willbe open.It is also planned to have an unusuallylarge number of courses in the SummerQuarter dealing with different phases of theforeign-relations problem. Professor JamesWilford Garner, Head of the Department ofPolitical Science, University of Illinois, willgive a course in European governments:Mr. Walter S. Rogers, formerly with theState Department, one on "InternationalCommunications"; Associate Professor JacobViner, a course in international trade; DeanJames H. Tufts, in the philosophy of in­ternational relations; and Professor QuincyWright, in international law and diplomacy.Award of a Traveling FellowshipA Traveling Fellowshiup worth $1,500 hasbeen awarded by President Burton to Mr.Harold R. Willoughby, a graduate of Wes­leyan University and a sergeant of artilleryin the late war, who has just passed hisDoctor's examination at the' University ofChicago with the highest honors. Mr. Wi1�loughby sails at once for Palestine andGreece, where he will spend the spring, and,after visiting Germany and! England in thesummer, will return to the University inSeptember to take up work as Instructor inthe New Testament Department. Professor McLean and. Medical SchoolDevelopmentsWith the arrival of Dr. Franklin ChambersMcLean, '08, M. D. '10, Ph. D. '16, therecently elected Professor of Medicine, totake part in the work of organizing theMedical School at the University, the greatmedical program of the University of Chi­cago has begun. Dr. McLean is an alumnusof the University of Chicago and of RushMedical College, and has had the remarkableexperience of organizing the great PekingUnion Medical College, upon whose build­ings and equipment $9,000,000 gold havealready been expended. Dr. Me Lean im­mediately engaged with other members ofthe medical faculty at the University in the. planning of the medical buildings and the'organization of the medical faculty.Besides his connection as director with thePeking Union Medical College since 1916,Dr. McLean's professional experience in­cludes service on the faculty of the Univer­sity of Chicago, the staff of the Cook CountyHospital, the Medical School of the U niver­sity of Oregon, the University of Gratz,Austria, and the Rockefeller Institute forMedical Research.With the appointment of Dr. McLean toa professorship in the University of ChicagoMedical School it has been possible to cre­ate a representative committee of the Facultyon the organization and development of theMedical School, and this committee is nowpreparing plans for the organization of theFaculty and for the new hospital and asso­ciated buildings which it is expected will bebuilt between Ellis and Drexel Avenues and.between 58th and 59th Streets.Another event of great importance to theMedical School is the fact that the condi­tional pledges of the General EducationBoard and the Rockefeller Foundation of amillion dollars each have recently been paidinto the treasury of the University, and thissum of two million dollars must under theconditions of the gift be held perpetually forendowment of medical work.The entire $5,300,000 pledged' in 1916-17has now been paid in, but the present costsof building and expansion of the plans forthe hospital and school from an educationalpoint of view call for. not less than six, mil­Lion dollars additional to the fund now inhand.UNIVERSITY NOTESDiscoveries Concerning Chaucer's LifeSurprising discoveries have been madeabout the life of Geoffrey Chaucer by Pro­fessor John Matthews Manly in collabora­tion with other scholars of the UniversityEnglish department, which will make the.study of the Canterbury Tales more inter­esting and personal.Students of Chaucer have long wonderedwhere he obtained his wonderful grasp ofthe cultural and business life of the centuryin which he lived, as he was supposed tohave had only the education of a commonpage. Professor Manly has now made dis­coveries that show that Chaucer in realityhad a very broad education. He preparedfor the life of a business man in the InnerTemple, a combination gentlemen's club anduniversity. He lived there, studying underthe leading savants of the time, who lec­tured on Law and Business as the mostimportant subjects, although French, Latinand social accomplishments were listedamong their teachings.Upon his graduation from the Temple hewas sent on seven foreign missions, wascomptroller of customs for twelve years andhad charge of the King's works, amongwhich were Windsor Castle and Westmin­ster. Abbey. Finally he was pJaced incharge of the forest of North Pembroke, anoffice that called for a special knowledge ofland laws..These facts, which were dug out of oldEnglish documents concerning Land andGovernment, documents which have beenpreserved on account of their legal impor­tance, were discovered during more than ayear of research work, conducted by, Pro­fessor Manly; with the assistance of Dr.D. D. Griffith, Dr. Edith Rickert and Asso­ciate Professor Hulbert, all of the University.Among the facts concerning Chaucer'swritings was found evidence that his char­acters were real people, probably friends ofthe great writer. For instance, the Ho-stin the Canterbury Tales, Harry Baily, wasreally an inn-keeper of Southwark. He ismentioned in 1379 on the tax list, and againthere is a notation to the effect that he wasappointed. special coroner in 1393.Also a Nun, Philippa, who was the sisterof King Philip, left a will in which shenames Ergantine as a beneficiary. In theCanterbury Tales one of the pilgrims is' anun named Eglantine, and the evidenceseems to point to the fact that these twowere one and, the same person.According ito Professor Manly, these in­teresting discoveries about Chaucer throwa new light and interest upon his writings.besides setting forth a true study of life asit was in medieval England, and a fullerrealization' and understanding of the civili­zation of that day. 219Trustees Rename Three Halls-Blake, Gatesand Goodspeed HallsThe board. of trustees of the Universityhave renamed the three men's dormitories,hitherto known as South Divinity, MiddleDivinity, and North hall, in honor of threemen who have been identified with the de­velopment of the University in past years.Middle Divinity is to be known as GatesHall, in honor of Frederick T. Gates ofMontclair, New Jersey. who was for manyyears president of the General Educationboard. Mr. Gates was .active thirty-fiveyears ago in the establishment of the Univer­sity, personally securing from Mr. Rocke­feller his first definite pledge of $6'00,000,and working with Dr. Goodspeed in raisingthe additional $400,000 on which Mr. Rocke­feller's gift was conditioned. He was formany years a trustee of the University, andhas been one of its most influential friends.North Hall is to be known as Blake Hall,in honor of E. Nelson Blake, who was thefirst president of the board of trustees ofthe University, and was a leading businessman of Chicago for many years, being atone time president of the board of trade.Mr. Blake was the father of Mrs. HermanH. Kohlsaat of New York, and his grand­daughter is Mrs. Potter Palmer of Chicago.South Hall is to be known as GoodspeedHall, in honor of Dr. Thomas W. Goodspeed.A.B. '62, who was actively engaged withMr. Gates in the establishment of the Uni­versity in Chicago and in interesting Mr.Rockefeller in its foundation, and was fortwenty years secretary of the board of trus­tees. Since his retirement twelve years ago,he has written the History of the Universityand a volume of Biographical Sketches of itsprincipal benefactors. For nearly fifty yearspast, he has been in the service, first, of theDivinity School, and later of the University.Add Senior Dues to Spring Quarter TuitionThree dollars will be added to the tuitionof every member of the senior class eligiblefor a bachelor's degree in June as paymentof class dues. This arrangement was 'agreedto, and final plans were made for the col­lection, at a meeting in Dean Wilkins' officeof Walter A. Payne, Wm. J. Mather, DeanWilkins, and Louis Sterling, treasurer of thesenior class ..The new standard of class dues is twodollars lower than when they were only vol­untary. One-third of the dues will be ap­plied toward the class gifts, one-third towarda subscription to the Alumni Magazine fora year, and the rest toward the furtheringof class activities. The dues thus collectedfrom the five hundred members of the classwill well cover the various class expenses.220· THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEOne Hundred' 'Thirty-Second ConvocationAt the One Hundred Thirty-second Con­vocation of the University of Chicago onMarch 18; the following degrees were con­ferred by President Burton:In the Colleges of Arts, Literature, andScience, 70' Bachelor's degrees; in theSchool of Commerce and Administration,17; in the School of Social Service Admin­istration, 2; and in the College of Educa­tion, 14-a total of 10'3.In the Divinity School there were fourcandidates for the degree of Master of Arts;four for that of Bachelor of Divinity; andone for that of Doctor of Philosophy, a totalof nine.

In1921 he was awarded the Phillips Prize, given by theAmerican Philosophical Society."H umanizing the College"(Continued from page 21G')We have discovered the rich possibilitiesof faculty-student cooperation, and havelearned the value of student suggestions.We therefore decided to utilize' the brainsand energy of the senior class.' At' it seniorchapel we asked them to send in writtenstatements suggesting improvements inundergraduate work. One hundred twenty­five letters were received, making 118 sug­gestions. A committee of faculty and stu­dents sorted these and selected the twenty­five most important, each of which is nowbeing studied by a separate faculty-studentcommittee. The topics under discussionrange from the need of a music school at theUniversity, to current affairs; from thequality of undergraduate instruction to 're"organization of the Honor Commission,faculty advisers for fraternities,' women'sclubs and similar topics. 'We are working on a questionnaire, whichevery undergraduate is to fill out, for infor­mation on the distribution of a student'stime. Some of the questions deal with socialaffairs, some with outside work, transporta­tion and other subjects.In short we are trying to make the U ni­versity of Chicago a "human sort of place,in which to live and work."THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEMaterials in the Field of Collegiate Business.-. TrainingE. A" DUDDYIn 1912 experimentation' was begun underthe leadership 6f Dean Leon C. Marshall to­ward developing for the School of Com­merce and Administration of the Universitya coherent, organic system of training. Aplan oC'curriculum was conceived wherebysecondary school work could be coordinatedwith tae . program of collegiate education.At the same time itwas sought to give unityto a sJ$tem of trairiing which previously, ineducational . annals, had been more or lessheterogeneous and in terms of separate sub­jeers, The key to the solution was the so­called functionaljtorganization of businesscourses. This is the unique contribution ofthe §1<;.hoor of Commerce and Administrationin fifie field of business education. TheSch<501 is the only one with a curriculumorganized wholly. upon this basis.At present, after twelve years of effort,the School offers a systematic program ofcollegiate instruction which qualifies the suc­cessful candidate for the degree of Ph. B. orA. M. Such a result could not have beenarrived at without the development of abody of material for class-room use and forstudy. The series "Materials for the Studyof Business" was initiated by the publicationin .19:1:8 of Dean Marshall's "Readings in In­dustrial Society" and there have appeared todate sixteen major publications.A classification of titles will serve to makeclear' the objectives aimed at. Of books al­ready published there .should be distinguishedfirst, those which have .as their purpose thefurnishing of subject matter for the func­tional courses of collegiate instruction.

'04."The Cycle of Law"Homer Hoyt, J.D. '18, member of theVarsity debating team in 1916, now teachingEconomics and debating at the Universityof Chicago, has an article en titled "The Cy­cle of Law," in the American Bar AssociationJournal for November, 192'3.The cycle starts with a "period of staticequilibrium" by the end of the thirteenthcentury when causes of action had crystal­lized into 471 specific forms. Then came theStatute of Westminster II (A. D. 12'85)which provided for new remedies to meetnew causes of action, but gave only partialremedy. The rigor of the common lawforced the equity system to spring up, thetheory being to decide each case on its mer­its. But soon the Court of Equity began torun wild, so that decisions according toconscience varied with the conscience ofeach chancellor, "which varied, as was latersaid by Selden, with the length of the footof each Chancellor."Gradually' equity crystallized into a defi­nite form just as the common law had, be­fore it; the chancery cases were printed, andacquired binding authority as precedentsJust as the common law cases had becomebinding. Meanwhile under Lord Mansfieldthe common law had assimilated the LawMerchant."Thus renovated and enlarged, the com­bined system of common law and equity bythe middle of the eighteenth century againreached a static equilibrium. and a completecycle had been transcribed."Chicago Bar Association New HomeThe Chicago Bar Association has beentaking a vote of its members on the questionof removing May 1, 1924, to the top (nine­teenth) floor of the new Burnham Building at the corner of LaSalle and Randolphstreets. It is proposed to lease the entiretop floor, which will provide not only alibrary but a lounging room and a diningroom to accommodate about 200 members aday. As the expense will be much increased,a vote of higher dues must be charged;hence the referendum of members. The re­sult of the vote was overwhelmingly in favorof both the change of location and the in­crease in dues.The report of the Committee on Perma­nent Home, mailed out to all the members,is printed in a pamphlet of 24 pages, andincludes a report by a sub-committee, anda favorable recommendation by the Boardof Governors.

The problems which havebeen studied relate to practically every phaseof reading instruction. Interesting examplesof these problems follow: What are thecharacteristics of good readers and! of poor. readers? What are the fundamental habitsinvolved in oral reading and in silentreading? When do these habits normallydevelop- most rapidly? What methods ofinstruction stimulate growth most effec­tively? What reading materials are mostsatisfactory for use in each grade or groupof grades? What serious difficulties dopupils encounter in learning to read? Howmay these difficulties be overcome or re­moved?.The study of these problems has enlistedthe interest both of scientists and of schooladministrators and teachers. Evidence of theinterest and constructive effort of the formeris found in the reports of laboratory exper­iments and investigations which have beenpublished in large numbers during the lastten years. Evidence of the interest andcooperation of the latter is found in thenumerous instructive studies which havebeen carried on in school systems. Forexample, the teachers of Rochester, NewYork, began six years ago a detailed studyof appropriate aims, methods, and materialsof reading instruction for that city. Practi­cally every teacher participated in theinvestigation, thereby gaining a clearerunderstanding of the problems of readinginstruction. One of the notable results oftheir efforts was "A Chart of Attainmentsin Reading" which has attracted nation-wideattention. Working' along somewhat dif­ferent lines, the teachers and supervisors ofSt. Cloud, Minnesota, developed a course ofstudy in reading which reflects very effec­tively the modern point of view. In all suchactivities, wide use has been made of ac­curate, detailed information concerning thenature of reading and the fundamental habitsinvolved which have been secured fromrecent experiments and investigations ofreading problems.Rapid progress in the reorganization ofreading instruction during the next ten yearswill depend largely on the continued coop­eration of scientists, school administrators,and teachers. .The work of the scientist hasbeen 'retarded of late beca.use· no completesummary is available of all of the experi- ments and investigations which have beenmade. In order to save time in this connec­tion and to stimulate the study of problemswhich need further investigations, the Com­mittee on the Reorganization of. SchoolUnits has secured funds which will providefor the preparation and publication of asummary and interpretation of the studieswhich have been completed thus far. Thereport is now being prepared at the Uni­versity and will be published during thesummer as one of the Supplementary Edu­cational Monographs. It is hoped that thismonograph will include a valuable body ofinformation for use either in the organizationof additional experiments or in the im­provement of classroom instruction.While the scientist continues the study ofperplexing problems, school administratorsand teachers need expert advice concerningeffective methods of teaching reading andappropriate material of instruction. In orderto supply this need, Commissioner Tigertof the Bureau of Education appointed lastyear a national committee on reading toprepare a report on debatable issues in thefield of reading instruction. The committeebegan its work by securing statements fromthe teachers of fifty-seven cities concerningthe problems in reading which are causingthem most difficulty. With this informationat hand, the committee prepared a tentativeoutline of the topics which should be con­sidered in their report. For several monthsthe members of the committee have workedindividually on sections of the report andhave met in conferences on several occas­sions. Before the report is finally publishedthere will be a prolonged conference at. which time the recommendations of thecommittee will be compared with the conclu­sions presented in the summary report ofscientific studies referred to above. It ishoped in this way to provide supervisors andteachers with valuable suggestions whichmay be used until further experimentationjustifies other recommendations.Without doubt the most important prac­tical outcome of scientific studies of readingand of committee activities will be the organ­ization of a valid program of reading instruc­tion for the grades and high school. Thedetermination of such a program includesthe following important steps: a thoroughstudy of the uses made of reading in schooland modern social life; an analysis of theattitudes, habits, and skills involved in dif­ferent types of uses of reading; the dis­covery of teacher and pupil activities whichPROBLEMS OF READING INSTRUCTION-REUNION DINNER 225are essential in attaining desired results; the'selection of reading materials which areappropriate at each period in the develop­ment of reading ability; and the analysis ofthe causes of difficulties in learning to readand the determination of appropriate remed­ial measures. It would be desirable, ifspace permitted, to discuss each of thesesteps in detail. The plan has been adopted,however, of presenting one example of SCIen­tific procedure in organizing a valid p�ogramof reading instruction. The effort which hasbeen made to be thorough and exact in thiscase should characterize every step whichis taken in the reorganization of courses ofstudy in reading.The example which has been selected re­lates to a series of investigations which havebeen made during the last few years to de­termine valid objectives of reading instruc­tion. Instead of depending on personaljudgment or group opinion detailed studieswere made of the uses of reading in modernsocial life and in school. In determiningadult uses of reading, conferences were heldwith more than nine hundred people repre­senting practically every station in life tofind out the amount of reading which theydid, the kind of selections read, and the pur­poses of their reading. The reports whichwere secured supplied convincing evidenceof the superiority of si1.ent reading. In fact,fewer than .five per cent reported uses oforal reading on other than very infrequentoccasions. A large majority stated thatthey read an hour or more each day for oneor more of the following purposes: to securegeneral information and civic enlightenment:to pursue vocational or professional dutieseffectively; to extend their experiences orto complete their education; and to deriverecreation and amusement during leisurehours.Information concerning the uses of read­ing in adult life were supplemented bynumerous studies of its use in school. Forexample, classroom teachers were asked toindicate the uses made of reading in pre­paring assignments in content subjects. Re­ports received from two hundred fiftyteachers revealed a surprising large numberof specific purposes of reading of whichthe following are typical: to find answers toquestions; to select important points andsupporting details; to determine an author'saim' to select material which will aid in thesolution of a problem; to draw valid con­clusions; to follow directions; and to repro­duce what is read. The results of thevarious studies which were made indicateclearly that habits of effective silent readingare indispensable in securing meaning fromthe printed page, in extending experience,and in stimulating the thinking powers ofboys and girls. Furthermore, they showedthat pupils need instruction not only ingeneral habits of reading, but in addition invarious specific reading habits.(Continued on page 227) SCHOOL OF E.DUCATION NOTESThe School of Education will beginthe alumni festivities of 1924 on Fridayevening, May 9, when alumni, students,faculty and friends are invited to itsAnnual Reunion and Dinner in IdaNoyes Hall.

Saunders(The University of Chicago Press)A remarkable combination of East andWest is Mr. Saunders, occidental by birth,but steeped in the history, literature, and -present practice of Buddhism. For twelveyears he has studied the religion of GotamaBuddha; he 'has turned chiefly to the Eastfor enlightenment. The Pundit Wagiswaraand Dr. M. Anesaki, Eastern scholars,trained in the scientific methods of theWest, who yet see Buddhism from the in­side as adherents, were his teachers. Drift­ing about among the quiet haunts of Bud­dhist monks from Ceylon to Japan, Mr.Saunders has caught something of the spiritof the great and noble order or the YellowRobe, and has conveyed it to his work.Epochs in Buddhist History shows howthe great qualities which Sakyamuni (Go­tarna Buddha) embodied have led to a poly­theistic cult, and describes the extraordin­ary process by which Buddhism spread inan ever-widening stream over the Easternworld. Beginning with the reforms ofSakyamuni (525 B. C.), the author takes upthe work of Asoka in spreading the new re­ligion. The Wellsian estimate of the greatemperor is shown to be not unfounded. Thenext step is the birth of the Mahayanathrough the influence of Iranian, Greek, andHindu ideas and movements (50 B. C. to 100 A. D.). In this connection are discussedthe early schoolmen and the University ofNalanda where "ten thousand priests soughtrefuge from the world of passing phenom­ena and the lure of the senses." There arechapters 011 Buddhism in Ceylon, Burma,and Siam, and in China, Korea, and Japan,and on the strange monastic system of Ne­pal and Tibet. The Lotus, the AvatamsakaSictra, the Prajiiaparamita, and other greatwor ks are analyzed. The gestures of tbebook are large, and the world it deals with,calm, soothing, somewhat fantastic, is ir­resistably appealing to the Western imag­ination.Mr. Saunders believes that Buddhism hasmuch to teach the Western world, and thatthe differences between Christianity andBuddhism are not irreconcilable. He wantshis work to help Christian and Buddhistscholars toward a friendly discussion. Isnot the Fourth Gospel almost a Buddhistbook, just as the Lotus is almost Christian?That cooperation between adherents of thetwo religions in the common problems ofsocial and international relations should notbe hampered by narrowness of spirit orheightening of difference to the neglect ofsimilarity is Mr. Saunder's thesis.,Whether or not we agree with the authoras to the value of Sakyamuni and his re­ligion as a possible influence upon the West,we cannot deny that they are aesthetic phe-nomena of the first rank, and are in addition,worthy of close and respectful study. If asCabell insists, Christianity was the mastercreation of the Great Romancer, Buddhismmerits a place in the list of his works. Asan intellectual influence, says Mr. Saunders,Sakyamuni takes high rank. The greatkeynotes of our, modern scientific thinking,causality and the unity of the universe werepopularized by him-one of the most re­markable achievements in the history ofhuman thought. The great reformer alsoanticipated some modern psychological the­ories.'A 'quiet beauty haunts the pages of thisvolume.' If your imagination is lame, thecrutches are excellent. There are photo­graphs of scenes in Buddhist lands and re­productions of old drawings of unusual at­tractiveness and interest, and appendiceswhich present examples of Buddhist poetry,.a chart of synonyms of Nibbana and Nir­vana, and charts of the Buddhist schools ofIndia, China, and Japan. This book willhelp you appreciate and understand the re­ligion of Sakyamuni.STUDIES OF PROBLEMS OF READING INSTRUCTION 227Problems of Reading Instruction(Continued from page 225)As information accumulated concerningthe uses of reading in school and in modernsocial life, detailed analyses were made andlaboratory experiments were carried on todetermine the fundamental habits, processes,and skills involved in various phases ofreading. In this connection the work ofBuswell and Judd, reported in "FundamentalReading Habits: A Study of Their Develop­ment" and in "Silent Reading: A Study ofIts Types," was most helpful. As a resultof investigations extending over a period ofseveral years it was possible to define sixmajor objectives of reading instruction. Thefirst two are ultimate aims which are offirst importance in the life of every childand adult. The remaining four relate to theattitudes, habits, and skills on which effec­tive .reading of various types depends. Abrief descriptive statement concerning eachof these objectives follows:1. Rich and varied experiences through­reading resulting in ability to enter into thethought life and leisure activities of theworld.2. Strong motives for and permanent in­terests in different types of reading whichwill direct and inspire the present and futurethought life of the reader and provide for thewholesome use of leisure time. 3. Habits of intelligent interpretationwhen reading for each of a wide variety ofuseful purposes.4. Well-established fundamental readinghabits including those relating to speed ofsilent reading and to accuracy 'and fluencyin oral reading.5. Appropriate habits of interpretativeoral reading.6. Economy and skill in the use of books,libraries, and sources of information.These objectives, when elaborated, includemost of the important phases of readingwhich should be emphasized in a programof instruction. Supplementary studies of theuses of reading in the school and in adultlife and more elaborate analyses of the pro­cesses involved in reading are necessary inorder to supplement and refine these objec­tives. Furthermore, additional studies mustbe made of the reading habits of differentvocational and social groups to determinedesirable modifications of these objectives tomeet individual and group needs.The example which has been presentedemphasizes the importance of scientificstudies of specific problems of reading in­struction. Students in various universitiesof the country are devoting themselves toaccurate, detailed investigations of suchproblems. They are finding in them one ofthe most profitable fields of research in ele­mentary education.WE SERVE THE WORLDTo Alumni and Others-To show you to what extent we are giving service to the world at large aswell as to the University community, and all parts of the United States, wesubmit the following list of countries to which books and other supplies weresent during the month of F ehruary.

Forty champion­ship teams, representing almost as manystates, competed, and the representationbrought the best high school basketballteams into play that have thus far appearedin this National event.The "grind" of some ten to fifteen gamesa day, some of which were played in thegymnasium of the Y. M. C. A. College on53rd Street, began on Tuesday, April 1st.As the week advanced, and teams wereeliminated, the remaining. games were allheld in Bartlett Gymnasium. The biggestpercentage of the games were very close,one-point margins and overtime games oc­curring every day, and "upsets" occurringfrequently. Great improvement in the teamsthroughout the country was noted, not onlyin the class of team play, the skill and con­dition of the players, but also in the coach­ing and the sportsmanship displayed. Thesportsmanship has always been on a highplane, but this year in various instances itwas exceptionally noteworthy.The semi-finals, between four undefeatedteams, took place on Saturday afternoon,April 5th,. and at night the finals were held.Windsor, Colorado, won the National Cham­pionship, defeating Yankton, South Dakota,which took second place, 25-6. Manchester,New Hampshire, won third place, by de­feating Northeastern, Detroit, 20-14, givingNortheastern fourth place in the champion­ship standings.This year a Consolation series was added,for teams that had been defeated earlier in,the tournament. The Consolation champion­ship was won by Warrensburg, Mo.; Elgin,Ill., was second, North Central" SpokaneWash., third, and Simpson, Birmingham,Alabama, fourth.Capacity crowds attended and applaudedthe games every day. Herbert ("Fritz")Crisler, who managed the games, "Nels"Norgren, in general charge, and others whoassisted are to be congratulated on thistruly great tournament. The visitors wereentertained by the fraternities, in coopera­tion with the Athletics Department. Inevery way, the Tournament reflected highestcredit on the University.Clifton M. Utley, '25. RALPH C.

I t is all done on avery small scale. Some places there aredrifts running straight back into mountain,but in most cases there are small shafts downwhich buckets are lowered and the coal isremoved in this way.· The chief difficultyhere is transportation. The place is way upin the mountains. The coal is removedcheaply enough, but it costs a small fortuneto get it to the city.That night we stayed in a little villagecalled "Sorghume," and the next afternoonmoved off for another l-ong trip. We startedat three in the afternoon and walked fortwelve hours with only a stop for supper.We had another very high pass to cross,and then a difficult descent into a sequesteredvalley where we found an 'Old summer palaceof N asir-ed-din Shah, where he used to takehis three hundred wives for their summerouting.We were beside one of the swiftest littlestreams I ever saw in my life. There was avery regular slope. It had no falls at all, butfor more than two miles the stream waswhite with the foam of the rapids. All nightlong we heard the thundering rumble of theboulders which were being carried down thestream. The current was terrific. Nothingcould stand in it, man or beast. And it allcame from the mountain side within lessthan a mile from the place where we were.On Monday morning we started out again,and that afternoon, after crossing anotherhigh pass, we dropped down into a beautifullittle valley, and this time crossed a snowbridge, mules and all, and at six reachedthe Imam Zahdeh Davood. We went on anhour further, to the top of a comparativelyeasy pass and spent the night there close toa little spring. Then we pushed off earlyin the morning, ahead of the animals andreached home at nine A. M.The little piece inclosed is a leaf from aMohammedan prayer book written in Arabic.I got it from the Imam Zahdeh Mohammedwhich we visited in the Lar Bala.
