XVII NOVEMBER, 1924 No. 1This November number, which starts Volume XVII, both heralds and informallyinaugurates the new "alumni year" for 1924-1925. Many things of great im-The Year port to the Alumni and theStarts University have occurred sincelast we greeted you in our Julynumber. These developments will be un-folded as the year progresses, and it is theconfident hope that it will be the privilegeof this volume of the Magazine to recordthe greatest achievement, by far, in ouralumni history.The new year at the University has com-menced with an intensive and enthusiasticactivity. With the largest enrollment in theUniversity annals — an enrollment that morethan taxes the capacities and resources ofthe University to the utmost — with the start-ing on construction of new buildings, andwith the impressive plans for expansion thatare now being diligently prosecuted, there isa stir and eagerness that promises excep-tional advancement. The Committee onDevelopment, recently organized and com-posed of Trustees and Alumni, from whichCommittee our alumni have heard thus farthrough several pamphlets, has begun awork, in cooperation with and under theleadership of President Burton, that will un-questionably be productive of impressive re-sults on behalf of the University. Much isstili in the stage of organization, involvingthe organization of special committees andthe carrying out of a multiplicity of details;but very soon the full organization will becompleted and the effort inaugurated to en-able the University to meet its more pressingneeds and for the early realization of someof the University's special aims.In this movement the Alumni are properlybeing called upon to assist. The comingyear will offer the Alumni an opportunity toassist the University in a measure never _be-fore attempted. There is every indication,we are happy to add, that when the time comes our Alumni will respond to an extentmost gratifying to our Alma Mater.* * 5{CBesides starting the new year, this November number records the consummation of arelationship that has long been most eagerlydesired. This number, indeed, isWelcome practically a "special edition"Rush devoted to the recognition ofAlumni that happy consummation. Formany years it had been the desire of the University to have the long andjustly famous Rush Medicai College becomean incorporated part of the University, andlikewise it had long been the desire of theRush Medicai authorities to have associationwith and aid from the University through acloser relationship than merely that of affil-iation. With the merger of Rush MedicaiCollege with the University last Tune, this"consummation devoutly to be wished" hasbeen realized. And already there has beenfelt a stimulating effect toward the buildingup, through the two institutions, of the bestpossible medicai school.With the merger of Rush there followedat once the cordial invitation to its AlumniAssociation to join the associations of theUniversity now represented on the AlumniCouncil. This invitation has been acceptedwith equal cordiality by the Rush AlumniAssociation. The constitution of their Association has been revised, to conform with therequirements of the By-Laws of the AlumniCouncil, their Council delegates were wel-comed at the October meeting of the AlumniCouncil, the Magazine has been made theofficiai publication of their Association, as itis with ali of our alumni associations, andhearty cooperating relations have beenpromptly established. We take this occasionto again extend a welcome to the RushAlumni! They are a great body of men andwomen long distinguished in their profes-sion and helpfully loyal to their school. Weare proud and happy to have them with us.Welcome, Rush Alumni, Welcome!A MESSAGE TO ALUMNIPresident Ernest DeWitt Burton . .*IIIIt is probably true — at least I am glad tobelieve — that at no time since the Univer-sity's earlier years have the graduates otthe University been so keenly interested asnow in the question, what are the prospectsof the University, what is being planned asto material expansion and as to educationalprogress. It will be worth while, however,to project the answer to this question uponthe back ground of past achievement. ForPresident Ernest De Witt Burtonthe thirty-two years of the University's lifethey are as follows:Number in the Faculty October,1892 (above rank of assistant) 92Number in Faculty October,1924 (above rank of assistant) 603Number of students October 1,1892 510Number of students in year1892-93 744Number of students in year1923-24 13,359Total number of buildings, October, 1892 4Total number of buildings, October, 1924 44Total property, June 30, 1893..$ 3,171,566.37Total property, June 30, 1924.. 54,700,504.40 Expenditures 1894-95 $ 543',989.35Expenditures 1923-24 3,629,062.99As to the future, I cannot do better thanto repeat here in brief what I said to thebody of resident students at the chapel as-sembly that marked the opening of thisyear.First we shall continue the policy whichwe have followed from the very beginningof combining research for the purpose ofadding to the world's knowledge in variousfields of learning, with instruction looking tothe education of the young people who cometo us as students. This is a relatively newconception of the business of a university.There have always been teachers who havealso been productive scholars, but it is onlywithin less than half a century that in thiscountry at least universities have defìnitelyincluded research as a part of their func-tion, and there are relatively few that do sonow. This, however, has always been ourconception of our business, and we shallcontinue to hold it.In the second place we are clear that theprincipal task of these next years is to makea better university. I think I may justlysay that the University has always beensupremely concerned for the quality of itswork. But we have reached a time whenthat is practically our only concern. Oncenumbers were important to us; for we couldnot maintain the quality of our work with-out a reasonable growth in numbers. Thatis no longer the case. Perhaps we havepretty nearly reached the point of saturationso far as concerns numbers. But we arevery far from having attained our goal inpoint of quality. It is here that we mustexert ourselves now. And on this we shalllay our emphasis.This effort at betterment we shall extendto every part of our educational work and toour research. We shall be continually try-ing to do ali our work better for graduatesand undergraduates, in the colleges, in theGraduate School, and in the professionalschools.If this sounds a little vague, let me pointout a few rather concrete things that thiswill involve.This effort for betterment means morebuildings. There is at this moment a spacein the centre of the main quadrangle thatis enclosed with a high board fence. Withinthat enclosure the University is erectinga building very much needed by the DivinitvnA Message to Alumni 7School. For years this school has beencrowded into the wholly inadequate spacewhich could be spared from museum pur-poses in a building intended to be usedwholly as a Museum. This building whichwill cost nearly half a million will be thecompanion piece to Rosenwald and will complete the Harper Court, matching HullCourt on the north.The University is entering upon the greattask of building up a Medicai School of thehighest possible scientifìc standards and thegreatest educational efficiency. To housethis school it has set aside two of the blockswest of Ellis Avenue and facing the Mid-way — a tract of nine acres to be devotedwholly to medicine. Ali the buildings nowon this tract will be removed in the courseof time, and the University will immediatelyspend four million dollars for hospitals andlaboratories and teaching quarters, andeventually not less than three or four mil-lions more.At the same time the University, havingtaken over, as its own, Rush Medicai College on the west side, is building at a costof $400,000. It will hereafter conduct twomedicai schools on a pian which I must nottake time to explain in detail.But it is not our professional schools onlythat need new buildings.When Harper Memorial Library was builtin 1911 plans were made at the same timefor extensions of it on the west filling thespace between Harper and Classics, and onthe east between Harper and Foster. Thesebuildings are now urgently needed for theexpansion of the Library and the properaccommodation of the Modem Languages andthe Social Sciences in which there has beenmarked development especially in researchin the last few years.When Kent Chemical Laboratory wasbuilt in 1894 it was one of the best in thecountry. It has never been enlarged al-though today the department is at leasttwelve times as large as it was when thebuilding was built. The provision for adequate facilities for the work of research andteaching in this department demands theerection of an additional chemistry buildingor an enlargement of Kent to doublé itspresent capacity.Ryerson Physical Laboratory now housesnot only the Department of Physics butalso the Departments of Mathematics andAstronomy, so far as work in the latter Department is pursued on the quadrangles. Alithese departments are exceptionally strong.Ryerson is now quite inadequate for theiraccommodation and its inadequacy is seriouslyembarrassing the University in attempting tocarry out and develop the very promisingwork in these fields.Other pressing needs confronting us at present may be briefly mentioned, one mostacutely felt is that of a General Administration Building where ali the officers of theUniversity now scattered in many placesmay be located. The School of Educationis in serious need of three new buildingsin which to house its important work. Oneof these, namely the building for the Graduate work, should be built as soon as possible.We greatly need new buildings for resi-dences of students. We hope in the nearfuture to begin to meet this real need bybuildings on the south side of the Midway.They will be devoted particularly to thelife of the Colleges and it is proposed soto build, organize and conduct them as tomake them powerful factors in the processof education. It is proposed that they mayincorporate some of the best features ofOxford and Cambridge, and such othercharacteristics as our own experience andconditions show to be best.Another building project, in which a largebody of our Alumni are deeply interested,relates to the University's program on ath-letics. Immediate steps are to be takenlooking toward the erection of a field housenorth of Bartlett Gymnasium. Plans areunder consideration, also, for increasing theseating capacity on Stagg Field and for thedevelopment of other features of the athleticsprogram. Ali of these plans have the heartyconcurrence of Mr. Stagg, and will be ex-plained in a special pamphlet being pre-pared for that purpose.Perhaps no one of our building projects,however, is of greater interest from manypoints of view than that of the UniversityChapel. For this building we have engagedthe very best architectural talent available.Detailed studies have been made of the greatCathedrals of England with a view to gather-ing suggestions from that source and itis confidently hoped that within the verynear future ground will be broken for thisgreat building which, fronting on the greatopen spaces of the Midway, will be thecrowning architectural feature of the University group.In fulfillment of this program of advancewe hope to have the full and hearty co-operation of the Alumni and former students.Definite information will be sent you fromtime to time and you will be kept informedof the progress of events. The Alumni associations and clubs are an invaluable asset tothe University and the University standsready to co-operate in their work in everypracticable way.We are facing the future with confidenceboth in the soundness of our plans and inthe fulfilment of them without undue delay.With cordial greetings",ERNEST D. BURTON,President.I THE MEDICAL PROGRAM l, , „_. 1pational Therapy will establish contact with theindustries of Chicago and vicmity for the pur-pose of training and placing in positions of em-ployment persons suffering from various phy-sical handicaps.The second, third, and fourth floors will bedevoted to various departments of the CentralFree Dispensary, classrooms, and laboratories.On the fifth floor will be the Department ofPathology, which will be called the NormanBridge Laboratories of Pathology. Dr. andMrs. Norman Bridge, of Los Angeles, contrib-uted $100,000 in order to enable the Universityto build the fifth story of this building.The building will be so constructed thatseven stories may eventually be added to it tomeet the increasing needs of the Rush Post-graduate School.The West Side medicai plant will then include the Rawson Clinical Laboratory, SennHall, a five-story laboratory building for research workers, and the afmiated institutions :the Presbyterian Hospital, the John McCormickMemorial Institute for Infectious Diseases,the Home for Destitute Crippled Children, andalso teaching facilities at Cook County Hospital.While the undergraduate work of RushMedicai College will continue here for severalyears, there will be developed the postgradu-ate program. This will emphasize three linesof work: investigation in special subjects byboth students and staff ; clinics and bedsidestudies in special fields of medicai or surgicalpractice in conjunction with the laboratorystudies pertaining to those fields for practi-tioners who wish to devote a year or more inpreparation for practice in a specialty or ingeneral medicine ; short terms of intensiveclinics for practitioners who can devote lesstime, but who will thus be enabled to keep in-formed of important advances in medicai practice.The buildings to be erected at once will include the entire Fifty-eighth Street front andthe centrai part of the Midway front, the lat-ter to be 254 feet in length. The wings willeach eventually add 155 feet to this Midwayfacade, making the total Midway frontage 564feet.This magnificent equipment opens before theUniversity an almost unparalleled opportunityfor service in the field of medicine and will beexpanded as rapidly as the generosity of theUniversity's friends in Chicago permit.Rush Medicai College has been in existencefor three-quarters of a century and has had along and honorable career in the teaching ofmedicine and surgery. The great advance inmedicai science, a corresponding increase in theinterest of medicai education, and the desire ofthe trustees and faculty of Rush Medicai College to achieve in the fullest possible measurethe purpose for which the college was origi-nally founded, have led to this new arrangement. Its amalgamation with the UniversityWith the signing of the new contract between the Rush Medicai College and the University, the consolidation of Rush with theUniversity is finally affected (June, 1924) andthe way opened to the immediate realization oftheir enlarged medicai program. PresidentErnest D. Burton states that the reorganiza-tion of medicai work made possible by thesigning of this contract will enable the University to take the fullest advantage of recentprogress in medicai science. The work will beorganized under three schools.1. The Rush Medicai College of the University, which will continue to prepare students forthe M.D. degree. It will retain its presentlocation on the West Side until the GraduateSchool of Medicine of the University is fullyorganized on the Midway.2. The Rush Postgraduate School of Medicine, to be housed with the Rush Medicai College in the new Rawson Laboratory on theWest Side, which will train persons alreadyholding the M.D. degree in medicai researchand the various fields of medicai practice.3. The Graduate School of Medicine of theUniversity, to be housed in the new MedicaiBuildings on the Midway, and to prepare students for the M.D. degree. The school is nowbeing organized by Dr. Franklin C. McLean,Professor of Medicine, and Dr. Dean D. Lewis,Professor of Surgery, in conference with othermedicai authorities. When this school is infull operation, it is expected that it will absorbthe work of the Rush Medicai College de-scribed above, and the two permanent institutions will be the Rush Postgraduate School ofMedicine on the West Side and the GraduateSchool of Medicine at the University.The University will proceed at once with theerection of the necessary buildings. For theRush Medicai College and the Rush Postgraduate School of Medicine there will be erectedon the site of the Rush Medicai College at Har-rison and Wood Streets a $500,000 laboratoryto be known as the Rawson Clinical Laboratory.The building was originally made possiblethrough the generous gift of $300,000 by Mr.Frederick H. Rawson, president of the UnionTrust Company. It is to be erected at thenorthwestern corner of South Wood and Har-rison streets on the ground now occupied bythe old Rush Medicai College building. Itwill cover an area approximately 90 by 100feet and will be five stories in height. Con-nections will be made with Senn Hall on alifloors, and with the Presbyterian Hospital. Thebuilding will house the administration officesof the college and the large medicai libraryand special faculty rooms on the first floor.The Departments of Occupational Therapy,Hydrotherapy, locker rooms and restrooms,and the library workroom will be in the base-ment.It is planned that the Department of Occu-The Medical Program 9means in reality a career of stili greater use-fulness for Rush Medicai College.The new Medicai Buildings for the Graduate School of Medicine on the Midway willoccupy the two blocks directly west of CobbHall and the Classics Building, and will costmore than $3,000,000, toward which the Bill-ings family has given $1,000,000 for the AlbertMerritt Billings Hospital, and Mr. and Mrs.Max Epstein $100,000 for the Epstein Dispens-ary.The first units of the new School of Medicine will be erected by the University in thearea bounded by 58th and 59th streets and byEllis and Drexel avenues.The units projected for immediate construc-tion are comprised in two groups. The i\lbertMerritt Billings Memorial Hospital with 200beds, which will face south on the Midwaybetween Ellis and Drexel avenues, includesthe following units : the Administration Building ; a medicai clinic for internai medicine andthe medicai specialties, including wards, out-patient departments, and laboratories, to beoccupied by the Department of Medicine ; asimilar surgical clinic for general surgery andthe surgical specialties, to be occupied by theDepartment of Pathology. This group willalso house the Billings Library, a gift from Dr.Frank Billings to the University.The Physiological group will include twounits to be occupied by the Department of Physiology and the Department of Physiological Chemistry and Pharmacology. These buildings will be erected on the south side of 58thStreet between Ellis and Drexel avenues, andwill connect with the hospital group.The buildings as projected, while designedespecially for the purpose which they are toserve, will be in Gothic architecture to har-monize with the other buildings of the University.These buildings together with the projectedfuture units will house the various departmentsconcerned with the teaching of medicine andinvestigation of disease on the University campus, and as integrai parts of the University.The conception underlying the plans is that ofthe inclusion of the so-called Medicai Sciencesas University subjects, to be recognized as suchfrom the point of view of their broad scien-tific aspects. This conception has been in ef-fect at the University for some years withrespect to the departments of Anatomy, Physiology, Physiological Chemistry and Pharmacology, Bacteriology, and Pathology, but willnow be expanded to include the departmentsof Medicine and Surgery. It is believed thatthis conception, together with the advantage ofphysical inclusion in the University, will serveto increase the usefulness of the departments,both as to their function in educating physi-cians and investigators, and as to their con-tributing to the increase of knowledge otdisease.iti tf mft tifi fiÀI 33 «'2 33 li 3* y|i SJ ni M Ì3 iJiV'GUrVfi' l"^J* rst-r'-?-;.-a'J ^• « n S3 3New Medicai Buildings on the MidwayThe revised designs for the new medicai buildings, made by Coolidge & Hodgdon, archi-tects are shown above.

Fletcher Ingals, M.D. '71Dr. Daniel BrainardThis marble bust of Dr. Daniel Brainard, 1812-1866,a graduate of Jefferson Medicai College, Philadelphia,and founder of Rush Medicai College in 1837, ap-pears in the place of honor at Rush. A man of tre-mendous energy and engaging personality, the found-ing of the college was but one expression of his highprofessional and social ideals. "On October 9, 1866,he turned aside from the subject of surgery to saysomething to his class on the subject of cholera, atthat time raging in Chicago. That night he himselfwas stricken with cholera and he died the followingevening."The Charter for Rush Medicai Collegewas obtained by Dr. Daniel Brainard fromthe Legislature of Illinois in 1837 beforethe Charter for the City of Chicago had beengranted. It was the first charter for anyeducational institution that was issued bythe Legislature and is the oldest charterunder which any school is operating in Illinois. Although the Charter was issued in1837 hard times prevented the immediateorganization of the school which was de-layed for five years so that the first ses-sion did not begin until December 4, 1843.This course continued for 16 weeks and therequirements for the degree of Doctor oiMedicine were three years of study with arespectable physician and two courses of lec-tures, but two years of practice might beaccepted in lieu of one course of lectures.The student had to be 21 years of age andof good moral character. Twenty-two students attended the first course of lectures, of10 whom three were graduated. This coursewas given in a room adjoining Dr. Brain-ard's office on Clark near Randolph Street.A shed in the rear served as an anatomicallaboratory. The teaching force at this firstcourse consisted of four men.In the summer of 1844, a building for thecollege was erected on the corner of Indianaand Dearborn Streets at a cost of $3,500,the lot having been donated by generouscitizens. This year the name of Dr. Brainard was published for the first time as anEx-Officio member of the Board of Trustees.During this course there were 46 students.In the third announcement issued in thesummer of 1845 Dr. Brainard's name ap-peared for the first time as President andProfessor of Surgery. In the announcementit was noted with pride that the Collegehad a fine microscope with sufficient powerto exhibit the blood globules, etc.In 1850-51, hospital attendance of at leastone term was made one of the conditionsfor graduation. In 1855 a new buildingwas erected for the college at a cost of$15,000 that had a capacity of 250 students,but it was two years later before as manyas 150 students were enrolled in any onecourse. The money for this building wasobtained by the issue of bonds which weremostly taken by the Faculty.In 1857 several important changes in theFaculty occurred. Drs. N. S. Davis, William H. Byford. H. A. Johnson and J. H.Hollister retired and founded a new institution known as the Chicago Medicai College which has since become the Northwestern University Medicai School. Thesame year, Drs. J. Adams Alien, DeLaskieMiller, Ephraim Ingals and R. L. Rea wereadded to the Faculty.The new school promised a graded course,but this did not appear to improve theequipment of students until a quarter of acentury later when higher and better workwas made possible by thedemands of thepublic and by University relations.In 1859-60 a Summer School of Medicinewas announced at Rush with a corps ofeight teachers which was to continue as apreparatory school of medicine. Two lectures a day were to be given and the termwas to continue for four months. Severalof the young teachers later exerted an important innuencc in medicai education Thiswas the real beginning of a system of Springand Summer instruction, given largely bymen not engaged in the regular wintercourse, which continued until the regular?o^rse ^as- extended to eight months in1893. During the Civil War the CollegeHistory of Rush Medical College 11First Rush Medicai College Lecture Room Q843) First Rush Medicai College Building Q844)L IM •"-A%"i JIfililllillliigf; -ffRush Medicai College C'B67) "Ruins of Rush College (Chicago Pire, 1871)work was a good deal disturbed, but itcontinued, with numerous changes in theFaculty.In 1866-67 a new College Building waserected adjoining the old building. It hadtwo lecture rooms, one capable of accom-modating 625 students. It had a goodanatomical laboratory and a modest chemi-cal laboratory. It was well adapted to theteaching of medicine for that time, whendidactic lectures and clinics to as many menas could be induced to listen was the methodemployed, together with required dissections,and with the addition of a little laboratorywork in chemistry for a few who were dis-posed for better preparation.As a matter of history, it is interestingto note that in Illinois until about the year1880, it was a criminal offense punishableby imprisonment to dissect or to have anyparts of the human body in one's possessionfor the purpose of dissection. This law,however, did not greatly interfere with thestudy of anatomy, excepting in adding tothe difficulties of securing material. Evenin very recent years the activities of somesentimental but well meaning people haveoften seriously interfered with this neces-sary study; but now the public generallyrealize that if they are to be able to securegood physicians and surgeons when they areili, they must give the colleges an oppor-tunity to teach them.In the Fall of 1866 after the regularcourse was well underway an epidemie of cholera occurred in Chicago, from whichProfessor Brainard and three of the studentsdied. This was a serious blow to the College, but did not materially interfere withits advancement. Dr. Moses Gunn, who hadbeen for some years Professor of Surgery inthe University of Michigan, was invited tothe vacant chair and this year Dr. E. L.Holmes was announced as Lecturer on Oph-thalmology and Otology, the first time thatthese diseases had been recognized in theCollege curriculum.In 1868 Dr. J. P. Ross, who later was soinfluential in the erection of the CountyHospital on its present site and in thebuilding of the old clinical building, and ofthe Presbyterian Hospital, was appointedProfessor of Clinical Medicine and Diseasesof the Chest.During ali the history of the college prev-ious to 1871 there had been an effort_ atgraduai improvement in medicai education.The value of preliminary education was reit-erated in the announcements from year toyear, but up to the year 1891 the studenthimself was allowed to determine what education was adequate, and, naturally,_ eachadopted the standard best suited to his individuai case,Shortly after the opening of the course in1871, the Chicago fire of October 8th and9th destroyed the College Building and aliof its contents, and the class was scattered;but in the County Hospital on 18th andArnold Streets was a small amphitheatreThe University of Chicago MagazineOld Rush Medicai College BuildingThis building, on the corner diagonally opposite the County Hospital on Har-rison and Wood streets on the West Side, was the home of Rush Medicai College forhalf a century. The picture brings back memories of student days and many famousclinics to thousands of Rush graduates. The building was torn down this summer, andon its site the new Rawson Laboratory is being erected.which was offered by the County authori-ties to the College, and the Chicago MedicaiCollege generously invited Rush to makeuse of its dissecting room. Both of theseproffers were accepted and nearly ali of theclass returned. The increased clinical op-portunities in connection with the CountyHospital made up largely for the loss offacilities in other directions. The nextSpring a rough building was erected on acorner of the Hospital lot which containedan amphitheatre at one end and a chemicallaboratory and anatomical laboratory at theother. This served the purposes of the College for four years. In 1872 the regularcourse was extended to twenty weeks. In1875 the new County Hospital was con.-structed on Harrison and Wood Streets andthe new College Building, long used forclinical purposes, was erected on the cornerdiagonally opposite. This was compieteciin time for the opening of the course of1876-77.In 1885 the course of instruction leadingto the degree of Doctor of Medicine wasextended from two years to three years oftwenty-one weeks each. The first effectof this advance was to reduce the size ofthe class from 549 to 420 with a reductionof 25 per cent in the income of the College.Although references to the curriculumduring the early years of Rush College in-dicates what today appears a very inadequate course of instruction, yet it was asgood as or better than the instruction given in a great majority of the medicai collegesin the West, and the graduates always stoodin the front ranks of the profession.Following the year 1890 there was a steadyand rapid increase in the requirements. Theduration of the courses was prolonged, theteachers were multiplied and the clinicaifacilities greatly increased. In 1891 thecourse of instruction was increased to threeyears of at least six months each, but stilithe preliminary requirements were very un-satisfactory.Ali through the history of the Collegeit was believed that some strong University connection was necessary to enable itto accomplish the best work. Very earlynegotiations were entered into for a unionwith a Catholic University projected forChicago, but this did not 'materialize. In1S74 a nominai union was formed with theold University of Chicago, but this did notaccomplish anything, as it was reallv aunion only in name and both institutionswere financially very poor. This relationsoon ceased and in ISSI the College formedan alliance with the Lake Forest University,which continued until 1898, but this also wasonly nominai as the University had no control over the medicai work, a'nd in no wayaided the College.In 1S94 it was decided that in 1897 fourfull courses would be required before grad-uation. The system of instruction began toassume something of a graded character asearly as 1880 but this was not satisfactorilyHistory of Rush Medical College 13worked out until ten years later, when thecourse of study was graded into first, secondand third year work. Four years later, 1894,the work was divided into Freshman, Sopho-more, Junior and Senior studies. The increased requirements and the developmentof laboratory work together with diminu-tion of didactic lectures and demands forrecitations compelled the College to provide more room. In 1893 a laboratory building was constructed, at a cost of about$100,000, across the Street from the mainclinical building. This contained besidelaboratories several recitation rooms. Themoney for this improvement was providedby the members of the Executive Facultvwho at that time constituted the Board ofTrustees.In 1883 the College started the construc-tion of a hospital adjoining the CollegeBuilding on the north, on which it expended$25,000. The building and grounds werethen transferred to the Presbyterian Hospital with the provision that the Collegeshould furnish the Medicai Staff. The creditfor this work is mainly due to Dr. JosephP. Ross who had a few years previouslybeen largely instrumentai in securing thebuilding of the Cook County Hospital on itspresent site and in constructing the mainCollege Building. This was an epoch-mak-ing act that has resulted in a clinical centreof over 3000 beds ali within a radius offive hundred yards of the College Building.The Central Free Dispensary which has been given quarters in the College since 187Shas been developed by the Faculty until itfurnishes an ambulatory clinic with manythousands of visits by patients each year.The further development of the PresbyterianHospital to its present large proportionswas due to the Faculty of the College aidedby a number of philanthropic men and wom-en and fostered by the Presbyterian churcheaof the City.In 1901 the advances already made in themethods of medicai education and the con-templated improvements in the near futurecompelled the College to erect an additionalbuilding at a cost" of $135,000, which addedgreatly to the teaching facilities. Towarclthis building, which was named the SennMemorial, Dr. Nicholas Senn contributed$5.0,000. A like amount that had been savedby the Comptroller in a fund to carry theCollege through the trying years that weresure to come from the increased requirements, was taken from the treasury andswept it clean. Then six of the Professorscarne forward and contributed the remainder.These were: Dr. Billings, $10,000, and Drs.Bevan, Coolidge, Brower, Ingals and Favilleach $5,000. Had it not been necessary toerect this building the money conservedwould have carried the College through thelean years; but the extra space was abso-lutely necessary to provide for the greatlyincreased amount of required work; althoughthe number of students was less than one-Removing Old Rush Cornerstone- The picture shows the ceremonies on removing the cornerstone of theold Rush Medicai building this summer and examining the contents of thebox which contained, among other things, a picture of the Rush facultywhen the cornerstone was laid a half century ago. The new Rawson Clinical Laboratories, the design of which will be shown in a later issue, is nowbeing constructed on the site.14 The University of Chicago Magazinefourth of what it had been a few years prev-iously.Graduate work at the College was startedin 1879 and continued for six years, althoughthe classes were very small and the instruction was handicapped by lack of money,(as the College had no endowment). It wasfinally abandoned to be tried again and againin later years, but always with similarresults and from the same cause.The Alumni Association, which wasfounded in 1867, and which has grown intoa vigorous organization uniting a large partof the living Alumni, has had a prominentpart in developing the College spirit thathas aided the Faculty in carrying out thedifficult and most important innovations inthe development of the present ideal stan-dards of medicai education.The rapid advance in requirements andfacilities for instruction from 1890 to thedate of affiliation with the University ofChicago in December 1898 were ali due tothe influence of a few men in the Facultyand to the medicai men on the Board ofTrustees. Two of the Medicai Trustees,Drs. DeLaskie Miller and Ephraim Ingalswho were no longer teaching had joined theFaculty in 1857. The others were the activeProfessors, Drs. E. L. Holmes, Henry M.Lyman, Walter S. Haines, Nicholas Senn,James Nevins Hyde, E. Fletcher Ingals,James H. Etheridge and Norman Bridge.It is worthy of note that the general pianfor increased requirements and improve-ments in medicai education that was carriedout by the College after its affiliation withthe University of Chicago had already beenadopted by the board of trustees of RushMedicai College a few weeks before theaffiliation was effected; but it is the firmbelief of the writer, founded upon years ofdisappointing experience, that this piancould not have been carried out without theinorai support of the University.In 1898, nothwithstanding the great influence of Dr. Harper and his strenuousefforts, and the approvai of nearly ali themembers of both boards of trustees, it be-came evident that an organic union of theCollege with the University could not beeffected at that time; but an affiliation wasconcluded that had practically the sameeffect on the medicai education that wouldhave been accomplished by an absorption ofthe College by the University.In 1899, Dr. Frank Billings carne into thefaculty as Head of the Department of Medicine and was appointed Dean of the Faculty,to look after the general interests of thevarious departments. Dr. John M. Dodsonwas appointed Dean of Students both at theCollege on the west side, and at the University, to supervise the educational workand to advise and direct the student body,and Dr. E. Fletcher Ingals was appointedComptroller by the Trustees to representthem and manage the finances. These, together with the heads of departments, wereformed into the Council of Administrationthat acted as an executive committee. The Faculty was enlarged to 68 members m-cluding ali ranks down to instructors (laterassociate instructors) each of whom had anequal voice in the conduct of the College.The elective system was adopted which en-abled students to select a considerablenumber of their studies.The quarterly system in vogue at theUniversity was also adopted with the effectof inducing many of the students to betterequip themselves before coming up forgraduation, and the college course wasthrown open to women, without reserve orany distinction in the opportunities offered tomen and women.After the affiliation under the leadershipof Dr. Harper, a few of the more activemembers of the Council of Administration,with the cooperation of the faculty, keptup a continuai pressure for higher standardsor medicai education and began to formulateplans for an ideal school of medicine — plansthat are about to be realized after the lapseof many years.In the fall of 1901 the first two years ofthe medicai course were taken over by theUniversity of Chicago in its well equippedlaboratories under the faculty that P'resi-dent Harper had so wisely selected. Thisfaculty was composed of full-time men whowere paid for their services by the University. Rush Medicai College paid a few menfor their services in the fundamentalbranches of chemistry and pathology andpromoted originai research by several fel-lowships; but, excepting for a short timeafter the affiliation, ali of the clinical teachers gave their time and best efforts gratuit-ously. At this time there were 73 teachersin the clinical departments.The untimely death of Dr. Harper cast apali over ali our hopes but did not in anydegree check the efforts toward betterteaching of medicine. To the Dean ofStudents, Dr. John M. Dodson, belongs thehighest honor for his patience, persistence,self sacrifice, and marvelous executive abilityin developing the educational facilities anddemands of the College. Dr. Haines enor-mously increased the efficiency of the workin chemistry and materia medica. Dr. Hek-toen developed the pathological departmentto a high state of efficiency and trainedand brought out many valuable researchworkers. He also was mainly responsiblefor locating the Institute of Infectious Diseases and the Durand Hospital for Childrenwith Contagious Diseases in the vicinity ofthe College. Dr. Bevan did yeoman workin stimulating advance in medicai educationthroughout the country.The Comptroller, assisted by the Registrar, Mr. James H. Harper, and aided bydonations from several members of theFaculty and about $25,000 secured by Dr.Billings from outside sources, succeeded incarrying the College through the lean yearswith empty treasury due to the small classescatised by increased requirements.Dr. Norman Bridge, whose health hadcompelled him to leave the city before theHistory of Rush Medical College 15affiliation was acòomplished, has continuedto exert a great influence on the development of the College and by his generosityhas aided greatly in the consummation ofour hopes. To Dr. Frank Billings, whosesterling qualities and prominence in theprofession has given him unique opportuni-ties for influencing commanding men andsecuring financial aid, belongs the greatestcredit that should be given to any one inthe Faculty for bringing about the organicunion with the University.For their loyalty, self sacrifice and earnestwork the names of every one of the members of the Clinical Faculty of Rush MedicaiCollege should be written in letters of gold.This history would not be complete withoutmentioning the Constant sympathetic interest of Martin A. Ryerson, President of theBoard of Trustees of the University ofChicago, and the active help of J. J. Gless-ner, Ernest C. Hamill, Charles L. Hutchin-son and Judges Jesse A. Baldwin and Frederick A. Smith, members of the UniversityBoard of Trustees. But the final overcom-ing of ali obstacles to the building of a greatschool of Medicai Science, on the founda-tions laid by the Faculty of Rush and the lateWilliam Rainey Harper, has been made possible by two long years of silent, persistentand often sadly misunderstood endeavor byformer President Harry Pratt Judson.Ed. Note: This History of Rush MedicaiCollege has been taken from a somewhatlarger and more detailed outline History otRush College from 1837 to 1916 which waswritten by Dr. Ingals at the time of the1916 Quarter Centennial of the University.The main events and progress of Rush since1916, culminating in the merger of the longand justly famous College with the University of Chicago in June, 1924, are eitheralready known to the Alumni of Rush andof the University or are touched upon else-where in this number of the Magazine. Tothe further efforts and untiring endeavorsof former President Judson, to the ener-getic work of President Ernest DeWittBurton and of the members of the faculties,boards of trustees, and administration forcesof both Rush Medicai College and the University, credit is due for the great progressand the happy merger which this latter not-able period records.In closing, it might be stated that no onecan read the History of Rush Medicai College without profound appreciation of thevast energy, the Constant self-sacrifice, andthe unremitting labors that were expendedby the founder, the Faculty and Trusteemembers, and the administrative leaders forthe advancement of Rush College through-out its long and often difficult history. Anendless succession of obstacles to growthand the realization of ideals seemed only achallenge which in one way or another, wassuccessfully overcome. It is truly an in-spiring record, to which no brief history, sofar as individuai are concerned, can dojustice in recognition of invaluable contri-butions. Dean John M. Dodson, M. D. '82Dr. John Milton Dodson, Dean of Medicai Studentsat the University and Professor Emeritus in Medicineat Rush, has been connected with the faculty at Rushsince 1889. He also has an M.D. degree from Jefferson Medicai College, 1883, from which college Dr.Brainard, founder of Rush, was graduated. -DeanDodson has won special distinction as an administrator,lecturer, and leader in the advancement of medicaieducation.When Dr. Brainard founded the College in1837 he named it after Benjamin Rush,1745-1813, the famous American physicianand patriot, one of the signers of the Decla-ration of Independence. Heretofore a complete history of the University, as connectedwith higher education in Chicago, carriedback no further than 1856, when the gener-ous grant of land in the city of Chicago wasmade for the site of the Old University ofChicago by Stephen A. Douglas, UnitedStates Senator from Illinois. Through themerger of Rush Medicai College with theUniversity, it is worthy of note, one greatsection of the University has a history thatcarries back to 1837, and in point of timebefore even the Charter of the City of Chicago was granted, the Charter of Rush hav-ing also the distinction of being "the firstcharter for any educational institution thatwas issued by the Legislature" of Illinois.This is an additional historic distinction thatbrings to the University of Chicago a valu-able element of traditimi and history.Since the foundation of Rush MedicaiCollege 8410 students have been graduated,including the Summer Quarter of 1924.There are today 4776 living Alumni. Thepresent enrollment at Rush is 339, and therewere 129 graduates in the 1924 Class.The present epodi, which marks the mostdesirable union between the two formerlyaffiliated institutions, is the beginning of agreat advance in medicai science and education.(llL., Response for Rush Medicai CollegeDean Ernest E.

At the joint dinner, in commemoration of the unionof the two Faculties, the following "Response for RushMedicai College" was made by Dr. Ernest E. Ironsto the Greetings by President Burton and Dean HenryGale.]May I attempt to express to you, Mr.President, the profound gratification of yourRush College Faculty in being able atlength to join in the family of the Schoolsof the University. This is the goal forwhich we have been longing, working, hop-ing, and the years of labor, of hope alter-nating with discouragement, now only serveto enhance our appreciation of this hour.This evening marks the beginning of a newera for Rush College, an opportunity fororganizing a school of postgraduate instruction and investigation on the West Side of anew lype on a University basis, and of as-sisting, in so far as we may, in the makingof the University School of Medicine of theOgden Graduale School. These_ projectsoffer an opportunity, the possibilities ofwhich are at once an inspiration and achallengc, and it is with a dccp scuse of theresponsibilities we are assuming that wepledge you the same loyalty to the Univer sity of Chicago that the Faculty and Alumniof Rush have shown to Rush Medicai College for three-quarters of a century.For many of us this occasion has a doublésignificance. Not long ago we sat in thehalls of this University; we received herdegrees; we went out into the world; andwe now return, happily to meet here manyof those who labored to inspire us withideals in those former days. And so wefeel an added Joy at our home-coming, andan added sense of obligation to make somesmall return for the benefits we receivedfrom our Alma Mater.Rush Medicai College has had a long andhonorable career. The College was charteredin 1837 by special act of the Legislature ofIllinois "to promote the general interests ofmedicai education and to qualify young mento engagé usefully and honorably in theprofessions of medicine and surgery." Thefirst course of lectures was given in 1843.Throughout the entire period of her exist-ence, Rush has maintained a relatively highstanding among contemporary medicaicolleges.Among the Faculty of Rush have alwaysbeen men who were leaders in their profes-sion, and public spirited citizens of theircommunity. Their loyalty to the School hasbeen expressed not alone by financial sup-port, but by personal devotion to the high-est current ideals of medicai education.When advances in methods of teaching re-vealed the shortcomings of the didacticmethod, and the laboratory period arrived,the Laboratory Building was constructed bysubscriptions from the Faculty. A little laterSenn Hall was built by contributions fromfaculty members including, Senn, Ingals,Billings, and Bevan. On affiliation with theUniversity, certain debts had to be paid, andthis was done by contributions from theFaculty. And when the raising of entrancerequirements of two years of college workcaused a sudden decrease in the enrollment,and a consequent lessening in funds fromstudents' fees, the deficit was again met bythe Faculty.It was with this kind of faculty that Rushentered the difficult period of the pasttwenty years. This period of working, wait-ing, hoping, has been one of continuedthough often slow progress; of combat withdifficulties; of endeavor to improve teachingwithout funds; of an effort to aoproximateUniversity ideals without the daily stimulusof contacts with the teachers of the University. But despite geographic isolation, sonften and justly deplored, the spirit and in-fluence of the University of Chicago havebeen very large factors in the life of Rush,and bave served to sustain flagging spirits16Response for Rush Medical College 17and beckon onward to higher educationalstafldards.The dose association with Rush Collegeof the John McCormick Institute and of theSprague Institute, have made it possible forstudents, some of whom had received theirfirst training in the University, to continuein research after their graduation from Rush.Investigations carried on by many workersin the College, Hospital and Institutes havehad a profound influence on contemporaryclinical medicine. To mention but a few, thework of Dr. Billings and his associates onchronic infections has created a new conception of this type of disease, and has madepossible the restoration of many partial in-valids to useful active life; the work ofWoodyatt has contributed to our knowledgeof diabetes and its dietary control; Dick,after fourteen years of work, has evolveda method which promises mudi in the control and management of scarlet fever. TheAlumni of Rush of this more recent periodhave followed their illustrious predecessors asleaders in their chosen fields — citizens, prac-titioners, educators and investigators — inother cities and educational centers of thenation.This period of waiting has been a periodof growth of closely affiliated institutions.The Central Free Dispensary has expandedits activities so that from the relatively fewpatients whom some "of us, as students,treated in the gloomy recesses of the firstfloor of the old College building, the numberof new patients has increased to 20,000 in192'3 with a total number of visits duringthe year of 94,000. The budget from 1923was $76,000, the funds for which carne en-tirely from the dispensary organization.The medicai service is supplied by the Faculty of the College, and the dispensary formsan important laboratory in which studentsmay study disease at first hand.The Presbyterian Hospital was begun in1886 by members of the Faculty of Rushin response to an acute need for clinicalfacilities for teaching which followed a politicai upheaval by which Rush was tempor-arily excluded from the Cook County Hospital. The Presbyterian Hospital has now425 beds of which approximately 300 arein wards. Plans for additional beds to thenumber of 50 to 75 and re-arrangement offacilities in correlation with the RawsonBuilding are now under consideration.

The new medicaischool on the Midway is to be a part of the OgdenGraduate School of Science, of which school Dr. Galeis now the dean.the organization of the Rush Post GraduateSchool of Medicine, an undertaking the im-portance of which to medicai education ofthe future grows apace, as we consider thepossibilities for investigation and the training of physicians in the several departmentsof medicine and surgery.The growth of this school necessarily willbe slow, with a relatively small number ofstudents who are willing to spend from oneto three years or longer in study and withemphasis placed on quality of work equiva-lent to that in the Graduate Schools of theUniversity. The vast clinical material ofthe medicai center of the West Side will bemade available to advanced students whomay wish to carry on investigations alreadybegun in physiology or other departmentsat the University. Close cooperation willthus be possible between the departmentsat the University and those at the RushPost Graduate School. It is probable thatlater on, opportunity for post graduate workshould be provided for physicians who wishto spend shorter periods in study. Thistype of work should be undertaken as avery desirable fulfillment of duty to thecommunity, but not be allowed to interferewith the centrai idea of serious, prolongedinvestigation.Undergraduate medicai teaching at RushMedicai College, which must be continuedfor some time, presents another problem.An entirely satisfactory teaching programis not possible with our present budget.(Please turn to page 21)I BRIEF HISTORY OF THE (\ Alumni Association of Rush Medicai College j{ Morris Fishbein, '11, M.D., '12 •Streets was occupied for the first time. An-other meeting was held in 1879. At this timethe Alumni became quite active, and the nextmeeting held in February 1881 was attendedby three hundred graduates. The treasuryshowed a balance of $267 and prizes of $100and $50 were voted and offered for medicaiessays to be presented.Thereafter regular meetings of the Association were held each year. Five hundredAlumni were present at the annual banquet in1882, held at the Grand Pacific Hotel, and Dr.DeLaskie Miller presided. In 1883, the PrizeEssay Committee submitted a system of rulesto govern reception of prize essays, which wereto be in the nature of research articles ; atthis meeting $50.00 was voted from the treasury for the Braidwood, Minnesota, sufferers.In the 1S88 meeting, a Standing Committee onNecrology was appointed to report on thedeaths of members y early.As an indication of the development of theAssociation, the following figures are of interest : in 1882, the membership of the Association was 151; in 1883, 306; in 1884, 245. Forseveral years thereafter there was a decline inactive membership, but in 1894 the membership reached over 500, the largest in the Asso-ciation's history up to that time. As the yearspassed, the Constitution of the Association wasaltered from time to time, to fit such changedconditions as had arisen.In 1904, shortly after the affiliation of RushMedicai College with the University of Chicago, the Alumni Association published an ad-dress book giving the addresses of graduates and listing those who had died.On August 15, 1904, the Alumni Associationbegan the publication of its Bulletin, a quar-terly periodical under the editorship of Dr. B.M. Linnell. The first number of this Bulletin contained the minutes of the meeting ofthe Association, a report of the committee onthe establishment of the Alumni FellowshipFund and brief announcements of meetings ofRush graduates that had been held at Tacoma,Washington; Des Moines, lowa; Atlantic Cityand Madison, Wisconsin. At that time therewere approximately four thousand alumni prac-ticing medicine of a total list of six thousandthree hundred fifty graduates. The firstAlumni Fellow to be appointed was Dr. E. C.Rosenow, now at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester,Minnesota, and widely known as an investiga-tor in bacteriology.The minutes of the Alumni Association in1905 showed that the membership had arisenfrom 216 to 671. However, 771 members hadcontributed to the Fellowship Fund. The Bulletin. continuing under the editorship of DrB. M. Linnell, was devoted chiefly to publica-Dr. Charles A. Parker, M. D. '91Dr. Charles Aubrey Parker is Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Surgery at Rush Medicai College. He is now serving as Secretary of theRush Alumni Association.It appears that the first Alumni Associationof the graduates of Rush Medicai College wasplanned in 1861. However, the gathering wasdeferred "till other and better times shouldcome when Alma Mater could greet herAlumni under happier auspices. When WhiteWinged Peace carne again to the distractedcountry, then would be time enough to culti-vate ali peaceful associations."In 1867 a new college building was openedat the corner of Indiana Street and DearbornAvenue, and the Alumni were asked to meet inthat building on October 2 to form an association. Dr. J. Blount of Rockford was madechairman of the meeting and Dr. C. B. Reed ofHampshire was made secretary. A committee, consisting of Drs. Powell, Ingals, Johnson, Coleman and Hunt was appointed to drawup a Constitution and By-Laws. A banquetwas given in the evening at which Prof. J.Adams Alien presided.On February 3, 1869, Dr. E. Powell, President of the Alumni, presided at the first annual meeting, and meetings were held regu-larly until 1871.

Murray, a graduate of 1901. He enlarged the Bulletin, add-ing personal notes, lists of clinics, as well asoccasionai articles by various graduates. In1910 there was published a series of biograph-ical sketches of men who had graduated fromRush in 1890. Following the death of Dr.James Nevins Hyde, the Bulletin published aspecial report describing his work. The number for Aprii 1911 contained an account byDr. George II. Weaver of the living Alumni ofRush who graduated before 1852.In July 1911, Dr. Alex C. Soper, Jr., of theclass of 1901, became editor of the Bulletin.In July 1912, Dr. B. M. Linnell again becameeditor, and the first number published underhis editorship included an excellent essay onthe life and work of Dr. Daniel Brainard,founder of Rush Medicai College, by Prof.E. Fletcher Ingals, and also a brief account ofthe first period in Rush Medicai College from1843 to 1859 by Dr. George H. Weaver. Thispaper gives brief biographies of the professorsin charge of the various departments duringthat period. The Bulletin also contained memorial sketches of Dr. Daniel Brainard bygraduates of the period of '51 to '65.The number for January 1913 contained papers published by the Alumni Fellows, andwas devoted as well to a brief survey of thelife of Christian Fenger and his own auto-biography of about one thousand words. Itincluded also the text of addresses at thededication of the Jane Murdoch MemorialBuilding of the Presbyterian Hospital. Thenumber for March 1913 discussed the AlumniFellowship.Alumni FellowshipThis Fellowship had been founded by theAlumni Association in 1902, and as has beenmentioned, sufficient funds were first collectedto put it on a permanent basis in the yearfollowing. The Alumni Fellows included thefollowing :Dr. E. C. Rosenow, 1902-1904.Dr. Herman E. Wolf, 1905-1906.Dr. David J. Davis, 1907-1908.Dr. T. H. Boughton, 1908-1909.Dr. George F. Dick, 1909-1910.Dr. H. E. Eggers, 1910-1912.Dr. Morris Fishbein, 1912-1913.The March 1913 number of the Bulletin alsocontained an account of the dedication of theDurand Hospital of the McCormick Institutefor Infectious Diseases. The number forMay 1913 made further strides. At thistime the Bulletin was issued with numerouspages of advertising matter, and included inaddition to this an account of the dedicationof the O. S. A. Sprague Memorial Institute,papers by some of the Alumni and a specialreport of testimonial to Dr. E. Fletcher Ingals. In his response, Dr. Ingals presentedan originai report of the history of Rush Med- Dr, John E. Rhodes, '76, M. D.

As a professor and writer on diseases of thenose, throat and ear he has won wide distinction.Since his graduation from Rush he has been veryprominent in Alumni affairs. In 1896 he wrote ahistory of Rush Medicai College, from which someof the pictures in this number nave been taken, incollaboration with Dr. Norman Bridge, M.D., '78.ical College leading up to the affiliation withthe University of Chicago and also personalmemories of the trustees of the Universitywho had been active in consummating theaffiliation.In 1913, the Alumni Association again published an address book. At this time thepresidency of the Alumni Association wasconferred on Dr. Arthur N. Corwin, a graduate of the class of 1890. He took up his workenthusiastically and was instrumentai in es-tablishing an endowment fund, to which Dr.Norman Bridge of Los Angeles contributedthe first $1,000.00. The administration of Dr.Corwin was so successful in stimulating interest that he was reelected to serve the following year. At this time the idea of lifemembership was proposed, with ali funds de-rived from life membership to be added to theendowment fund. In two years by this methodthe Alumni Association raised $5,010.00. Atthe same time, plans were made to stimulateinterest in branch alumni associations through-out the country.In November 1914 the editorship of theBulletin was taken over by the Executive Committee of the Association, and Dr. Elmer L.Kenyon, treasurer of the Association, becamebusiness manager. To Dr. Kenyon must becredited also the giving of unusual stimulusto the organization and business affairs ofthe Alumni Association. During his administration as treasurer, and later as president,the Association made rapid strides in its de-20 The University of Chicago Magazinevelopment. The number of life membershipreached one hundred fifty.In September 1915 the editorship of theBulletin was turned over to Dr. Morris Fishbein. At this time it was decided to initiatea testimonial to Dr. Walter S. Haines, theoldest living member of the faculty. TheAlumni responded promptly to the suggestion,and more than one thousand contributed tothe testimonial fund. With the stimulus givento members by the efforts of Dr. Kenyon, theactuàl membership of the Association began torise rapidly, several hundred new names be-Dr. Wilbur E. Post, '01, M. D.

He has been one of the leaders in having theRush Alumni join with the alumni of the University.ing added each month, so that the membership rose from three hundred fifty in March1915 to eight hundred sixty in March 1916.Coincidentally, a pian was worked out wherebyeach member of the graduating class wouldarrange to become an active member of theAlumni Association at the time of gradua-tion.The June number of the Bulletin was madea special issue in honor of the class whichgraduated twenty years previously, the biographies of the members of the class beingpublished in that issue. At the same time thepicture and the biography of each member ofthe graduating class for the year was published in the Bulletin. The response to thisexpansion was rapid, so that by the end of1916, the actual membership of the Association had reached 927, and the endowmentfund had reached the stira nf $6,82(1.00.The annual reunion was made a testimonial to Dr. Walter S. Haines, at which time hisportrait was presented to the college, and hehimself was presented with a memorial volume. The Bulletin for January 1917 wasmade a special number in connection with thepian of Dr. Frank Billings to make Rush Medicai College the medicai department of theUniversity of Chicago. The Bulletin openswith an announcement of the complete pianby Dr. Billings and follows with a statementby the University. In the same issue began acomplete history of the affiliation of Rush Medicai College with the University of Chicagoby Dr. John M. Dodson.The Alumni Association founded a periodi-cai fund to be used in buying periodicals forthe college library.With the entrance of the United States intothe war, the Bulletin took an active part inkeeping Rush Alumni informed of the Alumniactivities in relationship to the war. Duringthis period, Alumni interest did not diminish,but increased so that the endowment fundreached a total of $8,500.00, the Haines fundwas increased to $2,317.00 and the generalmembership advanced by several hundred. Atthe time of Dr. E. Fletcher Ingal's death aspecial number of the Bulletin was devoted totestimonials in his honor.In 1919 a lectureship was founded in honorof Dr. John M. Dodson, dean of students formany years. This lectureship is in charge ofa permanent self-perpetuated committee con-sisting of Dr. Ludvig Hektoen, chairman, andDrs. George Coleman, Morris Fishbein, ElmerKenyon and John E. Rhodes.The Bulletin has continuously taken an active part in promoting the plans for the affiliation of the college with the University ofChicago. At present, the Alumni Associationmay be said to be at practically the peak ofits career.The annual dues were increased severalyears ago from $1.00 to $2.00 and the endowment fund fee, including life membershipfrom $30.00 to $40.00, but nevertheless themembership has increased consistently, so thatout of a total membership of some four thousand, more than $1,600.00 was received in duesduring 1922. The endowment fund now con-tains about $12,000.00, the John M. DodsonTestimonial fund $1,318.63, and there is a general fund for maintaining current expenses of$3,573.29. A fund was started in memory ofProf. Haines for the purchasing of periodicalsfor the library which now amounts to $400.00,Arrangements have been made to pay each yeara certain amount to permit the copying and permanent storino; of postmortem records in theDepartment of Pathology.Numerous state and annual reunions of theAlumni are held each year, and on the whole,the comnarison of Rush with alumni associations nf other colleges indicates that it seemsto he the most active Alumni Association inthe United States.The present officers include :President : Ernest E.

Tentative plansfor teaching in the Presbyterian Hospitalcali for 200 teaching beds to be organizedon a departmental basis into a real University clinic. To put this into force now wouldrequire $130,000 per year for beds alone,a sum entirely beyond our present resources.Without waiting for additional fundsbeyond the present limited budget of RushMedicai College, it appears possible, however, to make at once several changes in thecurriculum. By the rearrangement of cer-tain courses, it will be possible to effectsaving of time of the student and so toincrease the number of his hours availablefor independent reading and recreation.Time consumed and minuteness of detatl at-tained, are not true measures of the valueof a course to the student. After confer-ence with the hospital authorities and withmembers of the Rush Faculty, it seemsfeasible to secure the benefits of the Englishsystem of clinical clerks for ali students forone quarter in the Presbyterian Hospitalwithout waiting for funds to endow additional clinical beds. During their quarterof clinical .clerkship, students will be relievedof ali other college duties after nine o'clockand will spend the day in the wards of thehospital. These ideas are not new. Theyhave been.discussed at Rush for years, butonly recently have conditions been such asto permit of their serious consideration.These are but a few of the plans andproblems with which your Rush CollegeFaculty must now busy itself, and for thesolution of which we ask the help and adviceof other Faculties of the University. Weview the • future as one of unequalled opportunity. , It calls for daring, that we maystep beyond the conventional, for cautionthat we may avoid unworkable theories, andabove ali. for boundless enthusiasm.For the future we have full confidence,and we rejoice in the consummation of thisunion with the University.I pledge you once more the loyalty andlove of Rush Medicai College of the University of Chicago.

The Club, acting as hoststo the crowds of Chicago alumni andstudents who were in Columbus for thegame, again proved itself in every way amost loyal and helpful organization of Chicago men and women. Every detail in connection with the visit of Chicagoans, fromthe time of arrivai to the time of departure,including accommodations at headquarters,parade, banquet, and dancing and cardparty, was carefully worked out and mostthoroughly handled.The dinner after the game, held at thelarge Elks Club, which had been kindlvmade the Chicago headquarters for the day,was given in honor of the "Old Man and histeam" and was attended bv about 500 alumni.William S.

The Chicago decorationsin the hall were supplemented by hundredsof Chicago balloons, which lent a frequentexplosive touch to the festivities.After the dinner there was dancing, andbridge for those who preferred to play cards,the program continuing up to the time ofdeparture of the Chicago trains at midnight.The officers of the Columbus Alumni Club,listed elsewhere in this section of the Magazine, and particularly President Harman,fully earned the unanimous and enthusiasticpraise of ali who attended the game, dinner,and party, for their splendid work in againwelcoming their fellow alumni to Columbus.Columbus certainly is one of the "highspots" on the Chicago alumni club map.Central Ohio Club Elects New Officers.July 25, 1924.At a recent election, the following officerswere chosen to direct the affairs of the University of Chicago Club of Central Ohio, atColumbus:Chairman — William S.

The last two Fall quarters, however, have seen an unusual shifting inthe regular school program. Innovations andchanges have occurred right and left. Tostart this year on its originating activitythe Freshman class was summoned to theportals of the University a week beforethe beginning of the regular school curriculum. The motive of this summons wasto familiarize the inexperienced entrants withthe real Chicago atmosphere before rudelythrusting them into the routine of studyand activity.Freshman Week, as the new link is called,began with the entrance of the largest classin the history of the University. Thenumber totaled 827. The first process wasregistration and assignment of classes. Aseries of orientation speeches by PresidentBurton, Dean Wilkins, Dr. Reed of thePhysical Culture Department, CashierMoulds, and Dr. Judd of the School ofEducation, combined with a group of entrance English and psychology tests fol-lowed in the remaining few days to occupythe freshmen during the daylight hours,while between twilight and midnight"mixers" and teas and dinners furnishèd thesocial entrance to the University life. College associations, health, finances, and study-ing were the topics for the speechmaking ofthe faculty members. A musicale and alibrary trip through the mazes of HarperMemorial Library were other orientationfeatures.With the freshmen well settled in theirnew quarters the University turned its at-tention to welcoming two new faces in twonew officiai posts. Frank H. O'Hara of theclass of '15, and Henry J. Smith, '98, authorand journalist, are the two incoming members of the faculty. Mr. O'Hara, who Comesback to Chicago from the University ofIllinois, is the new Director of Undergradu-ate Activities, a position growing out of therecommendations of last year's "Better Yet"committee. Mr. Smith is the new Directorof Publicity as well as President Burton'sassistant. Mr. Smith has been connected withthe Chicago Daily News as news editor.He is the author of widely known storiesof newspaper life, such as "Deadlines" and"Josslyn."With the auspicious entrance of the freshmen was coupled the unusual feature of fraternity rushing limited to a period of twoweeks at the beginning of Fall quarter. Thisnecessitated intensive summer rushing withofficiai pledging postponed until the beginning of school. As a result the numberpledged was smaller than the preceding year,dropping from 250 a year ago to 225 thisyear. The women's clubs also reverted totheir ancient rushing rules after a 12 monthtest of the two-quarter rushing before pledging system.The fraternity situation at the Universitymay well be indicated by the buying ofnew homes by three fraternities and thebuilding of a large addition by another. Thisactivity aggregates a total expenditure of$250,000.With every Autumn quarter there is thefootball season.A new feature which will interest alumniof the University is the holding of footballmixers at the Reynolds Club after everygame, for the entertainment of the visitinghosts, the alumni, and the undergrads.These are due to the generosity of CoachA. A. Stagg, and are being sponsored bythe honor societies of the campus.Three Oxford University debaters, M. J.MacDonald, son of Prime Minister Mac-Donald of England, J. D. Woodruff, andM.. C.

And so far,there seems to be no answer.Four games have been played, two com-paratively unimportant ones won, one un-important one lost, and the one importantengagement so far, the Chicago-Ohio Statemelee, tied under conditions which do not,as is ordinarily the case of a tie in a con-ference game, prelude the possibility of theStaggmen ranking high in the conferencestanding.The two games which the Maroons won,against Indiana and Brown, they were ex-pected by many to win; the loss to Missouricarne at the very start when the team wasstili handicapped by injuries and lack ofsufficient drill; and the tie was due to thelack of an efficient drop kicker who couldkick goal from the 20-yard line, a lack whichhas since been somewhat overcome, throughthe development of Robert Curley as akicker.Due to the fact that every team in theconference with the exception of Illinoishas a tie game or a loss standing againstthem at this writing, and the fact that theMaroons are to meet Illinois, the tie gamestanding against the Staggmen does notnecessarily prevent a high ranking at theend of the season.Against Ohio State, despite the fact thatthe squad was unable to turn out betterthan a 3-to-3 tie and that only in the finalminute of play, the Chicagoans showed con-vincing push and drive throughout the game.D.uring the first quarter the Maroons madeten first downs to their opponents two,and throughout the contest demonstratedtheir superiority, but were unable to forcetheir way acrbss the Buckeye goal line.In the final period Ollie Klee, diminutive Ohio State quarterback, kicking froma severe angle^ and the forty yard line,booted a drop kick over the goal post that. gave the Buckeyes three points and presum-ably the contest. Several minutes later,with less than a minute left to play, RobertCurley. was rushed into the contest for theMaroons and sent over the kick that savedthe game. Throughout the contest the workof the Chicago line, especially the five centermen, was notable for its success in open-ing holes. Captain Gowdy at center,Pondelik and Pokrass at guards, and Goodman and Henderson as tackles, proved aneffective combination largely instrumentaiin permitting Thomas, McCarty, Carusoand Abbott to dash through the Buckeye linefor a total of thirteen first downs. The Indiana game, played the week pre-vious, was a repetition of Stagg's annualvictory over "Navy Bill" Ingraham and com-Captain Franklin Gowdy, '25, Tacklepany. . The Maroons won 23-0, and piledup scores throughout the contest despite theefforts of the Maroon coach to stem therising tide of touchdowns by putting in hissecond and third string men. The featureof the game was a spreadeagle run for 63yards, paving the way for the last touch-down, made by Gordon, substitute halfbackplaying his first collegiate contest.The Brown combat, in which the Maroonsupset the advance predictions and walk.edoff with the long end of a 19 to 7 score,was the season's first victory and the easywin carne as a surprise to ali Maroonbackers, following, as it did on the heels ofChicago's miserable showing against Missouri, a team somewhat interior to theeasterners. The Varsity scored three timeswhile the Providence team was Crossing theMaroon goal line once, which score, accord-ing to football experts, was the result ofan erroneous decision on the part of the(Please turn to page 44)35^nnrmnnnnnnnnnnnmmYmzsmannu^^THE LETTER BOX2nnmsmmmizsmmminminnnm£ammzsm\Professor W. G. HalePortrait of Professor Hale to Be Presentedto the University — An Appeal.Believing that no more fitting tribute canbe paid to a great teacher and scholar thanthe presentation of his portrait to the University which he served, a number of thepupils of W. G. Hale, professor emeritusand former head of the department of Latin,have undertaken to raise the funds necessary to secure for the University his portrait, the work of his daughter, Miss VirginiaHale. The painting, a three-quarter portrait in oils, representing Professor Hale inthe brilliant academic gown of St. Andrews,with the hood of Aberdeen, was exhibited atthe Chicago Art Institute in 1919, whereit was greatly admired. It is now at Stam-ford, Conn., in the possession of the artist,who has consented to give it up to theUniversity for one thousand dollars, althoughthe work is valued at a much larger sum.The officers of the University after carefulinvestigation have expressed their readinessto accept the portrait on behalf of the University. The University accepts only suchportraits as have genuine merit.One hundred eighteen persons, have, thusfar, contributed toward the purchase of thepprtrait, and the net amount in the fund isseven hundred eighty-six dollars. Contributions range from one to fifty dollars.It is hoped that the entire sum of onethousand dollars will be raised before Christ-mas, and that the painting will soon be hungin the Classics Building, in the planning ofwhich Professor Hale had a large part. Ulti-mately the portrait will find its way to thegallery in Hutchinson Commons.Ali who wish to do so are invited to con-tribute, and to send their subscriptions tothe secretary of the committee. When theportrait is presented, a list of the contribu- tors' names will be sent to Professor Hale.The committee is composed of: B. L.

It is with muchgratification I have noted Dr. Burton's re-peated emphasis upon the purpose of theUniversity to train "for service" and for the"development of strong personalities, notonly equipped with knowledge and the meansof gaining knowledge, but with clear visionand right purposes and powers of achieve-ment."For us who are engaged in education anddoubtless to many thoughtful persons inother professions and occupations the neces-sity of independence in evaluating socialquestions without undue pressure from groupor class interests and prejudices is the greatgood. Admitting the thesis that we are alihuman and subject to the frailties of ournature, it is stili the ultimate end of education to restrain the active, potentially self-seeking impulse of the individuai and con-tinually foster the more passive group con-sidering foresight which Comes from athoughtful evaluation of present convenienceor expediency as contrasted with future con'sequences.Pardon this rather long note.

This is a greatshock to the Speiks and ali their friends.Yours very truly,Ernest E. Quantrell, '05.Appreciation of Professor RichardGreen Moulton.August 22, 1924.The very recent announcement of thedeath of Dr. Richard Green Moulton onAugust 15, at his home in England, bringssorrow and a sense of personal loss to thestudents who had the privilege of knowinghim in his classes or on the campus, ForDr. Moulton was among those who believein the "personal touch" as a factor in education even in a large university._ As muchas was possible to him in his big classes,he made personal contacts with his students.And many a student has taken courage, ona day when papers were up for comment,over some paragraph or perhaps only aphrase from his own paper that was readout by Dr. Moulton as a specimen of "good"work. On the campus, ali who recali hisstraight stately figure, the head held high,swinging across from Cobb, will rememberalso his courteous greeting and his unfail-ing recognition of his students.Last summer I had the unusual pleasureof visiting Dr. Moulton in his home in England. Through a happy meeting withthe David Allan Robertsons in London, Iwas included in a party made up of theRobertsons and the Whittiers, formerly ofthe Law School now of California, thatwent down to Tunbridge Wells for a daywith the Moultons. We were met at thestation by Mrs. Moulton who conducted usby way of Pantiles, famous since the daysof Dr. Johnson, and along the drives over-looking the loveliest views of the country-side, to Hallamleigh, the Moulton's place onFrant Road. There we were welcomed byDr. Moulton himself, the centrai figure in alarge household of relatives and guests.Sixteen of us sat down to luncheon that day.— a feast of abundance both in delicious foodand . delightful hospitality. Of course thetalk ran constantly back to Chicago — thechanges since the Moultons left in 1920, andthe latest news of the campus interspersedwith reminiscences of the old days. Dr.Moulton expressed the wish that he mightbe permitted to round out his Atlantic cross-ings to the number fifty — which onemore trip would do, but feared that nowsince he had no university engagements totake him back, he might not find the excuseto go. His time was being continually filledwith literary work and frequent lectures forUniversity Extension in London or Cambridge. That he kept in dose touch withthings in America was evident from hisconversation and no less from his booksand magazines, and even his Victrola records.No happening of importance on the Chicagocampus escaped his notice. His commentswere evidence of his continued loyalty tothe University. It seemed fitting thereforeas we gathered in the living room afterlunch, that some one should strike thechords of "Alma Mater" on the ever readypiano. In spite of his recent serious illness, Dr. Moulton seemed the livest one ofus ali in his responsiveness on an occasionthat meant to us ali a happy "Chicago reunion."Dr. Moulton's fame was wider than theUniversity. In recognition of his eminencehis own University of Cambridge in Juneof last year awarded him an honorary degree. He has been proclaimed as a scholar.To us who had the privilege of being inhis classes at Chicago, he was not only anapostle of scholarship of a type not fre-quently met in America; he was also thegenial teacher, the kindly friend.Helen Hendricks, '07.Meeting Chicagoans in the Orient.August 20, 1924.Hotel Mt.

Swift, on October 13, and wasreceived at the Harper Memorial Library byPresident Burton, Professor Albert A. Mich-elson, Professor James Henry Breasted, andDr. Robert V. Merrill, who was at Oxfordwhen the Prince was a student there.President Burton and the Prince, withVice-President James H. Tufts, Mr. HaroldH. Swift, President of the Board of Trustees,and others in the party, then crossed thequadrangles to Hutchinson Court, wheremembers of the Faculties and students occupied the center of the court about the foun-tain. As the Prince and the President stoodat the top of the steps leading into the court,they were received by the great assemblagein respectful silence followed by enthusiasticcheers, and then passed to Hutchinson Com-mons, where two hundred representativecitizens of Chicago were waiting to greetthem at luncheon. Appropriately, the luncheon was given in Hutchinson Hall, a replicaof Christ Church hall in Oxford, of whichuniversity the Prince is a graduate.No speeches were made at the luncheon,which at the request of the Prince was informai, but President Burton welcomed himin a few words. "In deference to the wishes of our guest,"he said, "there will be no speaking here to-day, but I am sure he will permit me to express our appreciation of his courtesy incoming here. I must beg his indulgencelong enough to add that we ali cordially wishhe may live long to symbolize and foster thefriendship between Great Britain and theUnited States. May his nation ever standshoulder to shoulder with ours in the main-tenance of the highest ideals of national lifeand the promotion of international peace andwelfare."Concerts for the Season 1924-25Eleven concerts for the season of 1924-25in Leon Mandel Assembly Hall have beenannounced by the University Orchestrai Association.

Much of his material is concernedwith actual case studies of the groups, inwhich he has tabulated information gleanedfrom the boys themselves concerning theiractivities in the gangs and their relation tothe city at large. Many of his visits weremade to the Chicago and Cook CountySchool for Boys; and other material wasgathered from playgrounds, settlementhouses, truant officers, the police, the Y. M.C. A., railroad guards, and the JuvenileCourt.Other important sociological problemsconnected with the life of a great cityare being studied under the memorial, thework of which will be continued for threeyears. A house at Sixtieth Street and Ellisavenue, Chicago, will be used as researchheadquarters. New Mountains Found and Ascended byChicago GeologistEight new mountains have been found andascended and the remarkable but hithertounknown Cariboo Range in British Columbiadefinitely located by Prof. Rollin T. Cham-berlin, of the Department of Geology, andAlien Carpe, a New York engineer. Oneof the peaks, yet unnamed, ranks amongthe highest in the Canadian Northwest. TheCariboo Range, into which the Thompsonriver disappears, has long been a mysteryto geologists and adventurers, and the storyof its definite location is one of adventureand daring exploration.In addition to the discovery and ascentof the great glacier peaks, Chamberlin andCarpe have located the headwaters of theThompson and Canoe rivers, the latter ofwhich follows the Rocky Mountain trenchto the Columbia river. They are the firstwhite men ever to note the glacial sourcesof the two mountain streams.Without guides and disregarding the warn-ings of native explorers that storms mightcut off retreat, Chamberlin and Carpe madeeight first ascents of mountains that hadnever before been set foot upon by man."From the summit of the highest mountain we looked upon almost unequalledscenery," Professor Chamberlin says. "High-er than any other peak in the territory,with the exception of Mount Robson, wewere able to make records that will add toour fundamental knowledge of glacier andmountain formation, mountain structure andthe origin of mountains being two of thegreatest problems of geology."The World Flyers Guests of ChicagoOn October 11 the famous World Flyers, on their return from the Pacific Coastafter completion of their great adventure, were guest» of the University.

The fu-Professor Richard Green Moultonneral, which was attended by President ErnestDeWitt Burton, of the University, and Mrs.Burton, was conducted by Professor Moulton'snephew, Rev. W. F. Moulton, son of the lateW. F. Moulton, the well known New Testa-ment scholar, and brother of the late JamesHope Moulton, also well known for his schol-arly work.Since Professor Moulton's return to Englandin 1920 he had been increasingly active in writ-ing and lecturing until a few months ago, andhad appointments to lecture at the Universityof Cambridge during the summer. For manyyears he was one of the most successful exten-sion lecturers for that university in England.In 1891 he received the Doctor's degree fromthe University of Pennsylvania and in 1892 wasinvited to the University of Chicago to be Professor of Literature in English and later professor of Literary Theory and Interpretation.As an extension lecturer on literature for thelatter institution he did a great work in stimu-Iating a love of literature and widening thereputation of the University.Among his best-known books are Shakespereas a Dramalic Arlist, The Ancient ClassicalDrama, The Literary Study of the Bible,Shakespere as a Dramatic Thinker, and TheModern Study of Literature. Perhaps his mostimportant literary achievement was the editingof The Modem Reader's Bible in twenty-fivevolumes.University Preachers for Autumn QuarterPresident Burton, who recently returnedfrom England and a study of cathedral andcollegiate architecture, was the first University preacher at the University of Chicagofor the autumn quarter, the date being October 5. On October 12 Prof. J. T. Simp- son, of New College, Edinburgh, Scotland,preached; October 19 was Settlement Sun-day, when the interests of the Universityof Chicago Settlement in the stockyards dis-trict were presented; and on October 26 Dr,Lynn Harold Hough, formerly president ofNorthwestern University, and now pastor ofthe Central Methodist Episcopal Church,Detroit, Mich., was the preacher.In November Dr. Hough will also speak,and will be followed in the same month byRev. Harold E. B. Speight, of King's CollegeChapel, Boston, Rev. Wallace Petty, ofPittsburgh, Pa., and Prof. S. Angus of St.Andrew's Presbyterian College, Sydney,New South Wales.In December Professor Angus will alsospeak; and the Convocation preacher onDecember 14 will be Prof. Rufus M. Jones,of Haverford College, Haverford, Pa.A School of Dramatic ArtBy the co-operation of the University ofChicago and the Art Institute a school ofdramatic art is to be established, studentsbeing admitted to certain courses of theschool only after passing the entrance requirements of the University. ThomasWood Stevens, head of the new school, andDean Ernest Hatch Wilkins, of the University, will co-operate in the arrangementof courses, which will be offered at the ArtInstitute beginning with the winter term,January 5, 1925.The new schooi of dramatic art is in-tended to give a limited number of studentsa thorough professional training in the en-tire work of the theater — production, acting,scene design, scene painting, costume, andstagecraft. Admission will be made throughthe University of Chicago Bureau of Ad-missions and will be conducted on the basisof technical tests.Courses will include personal technique,interpretation, gesture and use of the speak-ing voice, dancing, rehearsal and performance, stagecraft, costume, and history of thedrama.The Dramatic Department is to occupythe new Kenneth Sawyer Goodman Memoria! Theater at the Art Institute, and willbegin giving public performances as soonas the building is completed.800 Freshmen Arrive Five Days BeforeOpening of Autumn QuarterA novel educational experiment was triedthis fall at the University to enable first-year students to begin their work underfavorable conditions. A five-day programfor registration, physical examinations, testsin English composition, talks by the deansand others on topics vital to the futureof the student, and entertainments to welcome and acclimate the incoming freshmen,was held. at the University for the first timein its history. It required that the enteringstudent report on the Midwav Quadranglesfive days earlier than usuai, that is, on Sep-tember 25, instead of October 1.Features of the program were (aside fromUniversity Notes— Mr. Hutchinson 31registration routine) socials for men andwomen, reception to students and parents,sightseeing tours of the University buildings, practice football games, "mixers" ordances in the Reynolds Club, vesper services,and "stunt night." If this novel educationalinnovation proves successful, it may be in-troduced into other mid-western universities.Tentative figures from the University Ex-aminer show an increase of students overlast year. The total number of admissionsfrom high schools in the autumn quarter of192'3 was 773; the estimated total, based onthe number of applications now on file,shows 827 freshmen to enroll for 1924-25.More Than 6,000 Students at SummerQuarterMore than 6,000 students were in attend-ance at the recent summer quarter of theUniversity. A remarkable feature of theattendance is the fact that there were almost600 more graduate students than under-graduate.In the Graduate School of Arts and Literature there were registered 2,022 students,and in the Ogden Graduate School of Science 853, a total of 2,875.In the Senior Colleges there were 576, andin the Junior Colleges (including the un-classified) 639, a total of 1,215.In the Professional Schools there wereenrolled 319 Divinity students, 156 in theMedicai courses, 196 Law students, 1,294 inEducation, 213 in Commerce and Administration, and 53 in Social Service Administration, a total of 2,231.The total for the University (exclusive ofduplications) was 2,946 men and 3,186 women, a grand total of 6,132, of which number 3,357 were graduate students and 2,775undergraduate.A Notable Gift From the Dean of WomenThe Dean of Women at the University,Prof. Marion Talbot, of the Department ofHousehold Administration, has given to theUniversity securities of the market valueof $15,000 as an endowment fund to be calledthe Marion Talbot Foundation. The incomefrom this trust fund is" to be paid to cer-tain beneficiaries during the life of Dean Talbot, and later will be used by the Universityfor the advancement of the education ofwomen in defraying the expenses of lectures,publications and research, or in similar ways.Dean Talbot, who for over thirty yearshas been Dean of Women at the University,is a Fellow of the American Association forthe Advancement of Science, a member ofthe American Chemical Society, the American Public Health Association, and theAmerican Home Ecoftomics Society, and hasbeen secretary and president of the Association of Collegiate Alumnae.She is the author of The Education of Women and House Sanitation and co-author ofThe Modem Household. In 1904 Dean Talbotreceived the honorary degree of Doctor oiLaws from Cornell College. Charles L. HutchinsonTrustee Charles L. Hutchinson DiesCharles L. Hutchinson, a trustee andtreasurer of the University of Chicago sinceits founding, died of pneumonia on October7, at the Presbyterian Hospital, Chicago.While the period of his last illness was brief,Mr. Hutchinson had not been in good healthfor some time. The news of his deathbrought profound sorrow to the entire University community.Mr. Hutchinson was born in Lynn, Mass.,March 7, 1854. In 1856 his parents movedto Chicago, where he spent his boyhood daysand where his home has been ever since.He was honored by Tufts College, Mass..with an honorary A.M. degree in 1901, andwith the same degree by Harvard Universityin 1915. Mr. Hutchinson first entered business as a grain merchant, later becomingpresident of the Chicago Board of Trade.He then became an officer in the Corn Exchange Bank, later its president, and wasfor years prominent in the commercial andfinancial expansion of Chicago.Always interested in art and education, hewas the founder and for many years thepresident of the Art Institute. He waschairman of the fine arts committee of theChicago World's Fair, and has been identi-fied with many religious and charitable organizations.Mr. Hutchinson was a generous friend ofthe University, making possible the erectionof Hutchinson Hall with the commons andcafé, known to our many thousands of students and alumni, and contributing othervery impòrtant gifts. During his manyyears of service as a trustee and as treas-nrer he was of pr^at and Constant aid tothe University. His name will always beidentified with the growth of the University.COMMERCE AND ADMINISTRATIONSelective Grouping of Students in theSchool of Commerce andAdministrationBy E. A. DuddyIt will be of interest to alumni to learnthat the most recent tendency in elementarysubjects is toward organization of the classinto groups on the basis of ability. In theSchool of Commerce and Administration,this classification of students by groups datesback to the Autumn of 1921, when the freshmen entering the School were so groupedfor purposes of instruction in the beginningcourses in English and Politicai Economy.In the Autumn quarter of 1923 the methodof selective grouping was extended to alifreshmen taking English 1 which includedpractically the whole freshman class. In thefollowing remarks I wish to indicate (1) howthe different ability groups were selected;(2) what subject matter has been developedfor the different groups; and (3) the meth-ods of instruction used.How the Group Was SelectedDuring the first three days of the Autumnquarter students were given tests in psychol-ogy, reading, and English composition. Onthe basis of the composite of psychology,reading, and composition test grades, theCommerce and Administration sections inEnglish and Politicai Economy were madeup as nearly as possible according to abilityinto three groups. This resulted in one sec-tion of good students, called Group A,(grades A and B), one section of averagegrade students, (Group B, grades B andC), one section of poor students, (Group C,grades below C), and an afternoon sectionwhich was left ungraded because of scheduledifficulties.On the basis of the instructor's experiencewith his section after the first assortmenthas been made, correction of- obvious errorsin grouping takes place and the section re-mains intact until the end of the quarterwith one exception. This exception is in re-spect to group C (below average students inEnglish). At the end of the fourth week,students who are failing in English areasked to drop the course in order to concentrate upon their remaining two subjects.Such students report individually to a composition supervisor and if successful in pass-ing a qualifying examination, are allowedto take English in the Winter quarter.It should not be understood that our in-tention in segregating the less capable students is to run a "bone-head" section or todilute instruction. Rather is it our purposeto simplify the problem of instruction andto make it possible for the instructor to bringthe maximum number up to the Schoolstandard. A check on the general accuracy of thegrouping is afforded by the range of gradesby sections in English for the Autumn quarter of 1923.Distribution of Grades in the DifferentSections, Autumn, 1923Number Per Centof Grades of TotalEnglish 1 bb(Group A, Superior Ability)A 8 26.6+B 19 63.3—C 3 10D 0E 0F 0English 1 aa(Group B, Average Ability)A 0B 8 29.6 —C 11 40'. 7—D 5 18.5—E 0F 3 11.1—English 1 ce(Group C, Below Average Abilitv)A 0B 0C 14 37.8—D 9 24.3—E 0F 14 37.8—English 1 dd(Unclassified)A 3 11.1—B 8 30.7+C 7 26.9—D 5 19.2—E 0F 3 11.1Interesting also is the evidence that, ingeneral, low grades in English means lowgrades in other subjects and failure to remainin the School.Of forty-six students with grade of A orB in English in the Autumn quarter of 1923,thirty-one had grades of A or B in PoliticaiEconomy, and in a third subject. Of thirty-five students who received a grade of C inEnglish, eight received B, and twenty-threereceived C in Politicai Economy; twelve received A or B, and fifteen received C in athird subject. Of thirty-five who received D,E, or F in English, ten received B in Politicai Economy, seven C; nine D; one E; eightF; no grade reported, four. In a third subject these same students accumulated oneA; ten B's; twelve C's; four D's; three E's ;live F's ; no grade reported, four. Seven ofthese students withdrew at the end of thequarter, fifteen were dismissed, and onetransferred to another department of theUniversity.32Selective Grouping of Students 33Adapting Material to the GroupsThe better students of group A have beenexempted from formai drill in English composition in the belief that they were alreadyefficient in that respect. That this belief isnot without foundation is confirmed bygrades obtained by such students in laterEnglish courses. The effort then has beento give these students a kind of work morein keeping with their capacities. The courseis essentially an ideas course, the core ofwhich may be said to be a certain group ofideas which have been dynamic in the historyof our civilization. To the extent that theseideas find expression in certain social insti-tutions the course ties up with the coursein Industriai Society, which the students arestudying concurrently. Students are askedto do considerable reading, to write a reportupon a topic related to the general courseoutline, and to take part in informai classdiscussion."Group B : For this group the regularEnglish 1 program of writing aiming todevelop technique of composition is pre-scribed. Since the Autumn of 1921 thesubject matter for English 1 papers forSchool of Commerce students has beendrawn largely from the beginning coursein Politicai Economy which runs concurrently with English 1."By combining the study of the technique of English composition as givenin English 1, with the subject matterof Politicai Economy 0, 'Industriai Society,' the difficulty of 'having somethingto say' is thus partly taken care of, sothat the student can give the greaterportion of his effort to a study of effec-tive presentation. It is not intended,however, to confine the written work en-tirely within the scope of politicai economy, and provision has been made in theprogram of writing for optional exer-cises. It is hoped that the relating ofthe student's special interest to the studyof English composition will impressupon him the value of English as a tool,and that conversely, his effort to expressideas presented to him in the Economicsclass-room will clarify his thinkinp aboutthose notions and help to fix them in hismind."A more difficult problem both as to subject matter and method is presented by thebelow-average section, Group C. Here thepolicy has been to correlate the compositionwork rather closely with the work in Politicai Economy as for Group B, but to empha-size above ali else the need of correctnessin writing. Fewer writing assignments withmuch re-writing has been the rule. A hand-book of composition is used in addition tothe rhetoric used with Group B.Methods Used With the Different Groups' The discussion method is used with the Agroup. This method can be described asone by which the instructor builds discus sion around a centrai thought or group ofrelated ideas. He asks questions and stimu-lates general discussion by the class in aninformai manner. The reading done outsideof class gives the starting point for most ofthe discussion. No attempt is made to arriveat definite conclusions, but rather to arousethe intellectual curiosity and activity of thestudents. From six to seven fifteen minuteconferences are held, and the individuai in-itiative of the student encouraged to theutmost.With Group B what may be called the"orthodox" method of instruction prevails.Themes are written to test the capacity ofthe student to write correctly. Ideas readymade are used as exercises to be renderedinto correct forms of writing. Only the re-quired reading is done. Such discussion asgoes on in the class-room has to do with thetechnique of composition. Conferences areheld with each student three or four timer.a quarter.In handling Group C, reliance is placedupon the frequent writing of short papers,on board work and drill work. No attentionis given to the consideration of style inwriting, the aim is at setting a standard ofcorrectness.Typically our slow groups have been toolarge for effective teaching. This has blockedthe use of the conference method to the extent that is necessary in handling this group.More personal contact and individuai instruction by a sympathetic and carefully trainedinstructor is what is needed. However, thefact that such a large per cent of this groupfails to remain with us after the Autumnquarter makes us wonder whether it isworth while using this more expensivemethod of instruction.Keeping the Different Ability Students Upto Their Proper Level After FormaiInstruction in EnglishThis segregation of students, according toability ceases to be of much significance ifa means is not provided for keeping eachgroup at its proper level of performance. Wehave attempted to do this by a system ofcomposition supervision. Through the co-operation of ali instructors giving coursesto School of Commerce students we are ableto maintain a check on the written work ofstudents in ali courses until graduation. Ourcomposition supervisor gives these studentsspecial attention in individuai conferencesuntil they bring their written work up to atleast a grade of C.Our hope is gradually to extend this conference method of instruction under the direction of a general supervisor to correctindividuai faults in writing which cannoteasily be got at by class-room methods. Re-sults thus far have been most satisfactoryboth in accomplishing the above purpose andin exacting a quality of writing from students in ali courses consistent with theirability.i— DEE 3EIE DEE 3BE 3HE 3QG 3HGLAW SCHOOLAlumni Gatherings in Connection withAmerican Bar AssociationGeorge Al. Morris, J. D.T5, has undertakenthe task of inducing our alumni to reune atthe American Bar Association meetings. Thefirst reunion was held last year at Minneapolis, while this year he succeeded in stag-ing two — one at Philadelphia and one atParis. These affairs are not to be judgedby numbers, but their success is loudlyvouched for by the fortunate ones who gottogether.At Philadelphia the "Second Annual University of Chicago Law School Luncheon"was held July 10, 1924, at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel. Present: H. W. Humble,J.D. '16, now connected with the BrooklynLaw School at Brooklyn, N. Y.; I. B. Fried,J.D. '22', of Canton, Ohio; W. P. MacCracken,J.D. '11, of Chicago; and George M. Morris,J.D. '15, Union Trust Building, Washington,D. C.The proceedings are summarized by Morrisas follows:"Toasts to the Dean and the faculty weregiven; law schools, politics, sociology,baseball, Europe, etc, were discussedthoroughly. Watch us grow."The Paris gathering was held in theCzechoslovakian Legation in the office ofStephen Osusky, J.D. '15, who represents hisgovernment on the Reparations Commissionof the League of Nations. Present: Benjamin V. Cohen, J.D.T6, of New York;Stephen Osusky and George M. Morris.From Morris's story of the affair ahectic time must have been had by ali,either owing to sheer enthusiasm or to thefact that the Eighteenth Amendment doesnot apply in Paris. Judge for yourself."Meeting held between Ben and Steve,and adjourned to Thursday, July 24, to awaitGeorge's arrivai. Meeting held at Steve'slegation somewhere around the Eiffel Tower.Steve's staff paralyzed by dignity and turinoli of meeting. Hot dope on Law Schoolfaculty and class given to Steve. Hot dopeon League of Nations given to Ben andGeorge. (Steve is Chairman of the Assem-bly's committee on finance and administration. If Steve says 'no', no money goesout.) Hot dope on Zionist movement notquite dragged out of modest Ben, who was'doing Europe' with Judge Mack. Stevefurnished cigars and cigarettes, but no drinks.Meeting great success. Voted to hold themottener. Love to Miss Eileen Markley (Mrs.Znaniecke) and ali the boys".A Letter From PolandMrs. Eileen Markley Znaniecke, J.D. '15,wrote a letter of regret, which we are per-mitted to publish, as follows: 31JPoznan, Poland, June 14, 1924.Dear Mr. Morris:The Alumni Magazine has made it quiteclear from frequent mentions of your name,now in connection with a meeting in NewYork, now at a dinner in Philadelphia, thatyou have not lost any of your old "pep" inspite of advancing years and even matri-mony.But even from you the suggestion of anAugust class meeting in p'aris Comes assomething of a "staggerer". Last year youmight as well have proposed a trip to themoon. But now, thanks to the financial re-forms of the last few months, it comes within the range of possibilities, and some ofour colleagues are at this moment disportingthemselves sur les boulevards.Unfortunately, we are about to invest everycent — or rather grosz on which we can layhands and mortgage the future for sometime to come in order to buy a little farm.Even Poznan is shocked and thnlled at theidea of me on a farm; as a matter of fact,I hardly know who is a "duck" and who isa goose when I meet them, do you? andwould be glad to postpone further investigation indefinitely. But, although such a farmis rather a poor substitute for a lost familyestate, my husband is keen to get back tothe country and refuses to be side-trackedeven to Paris, which is very dear to him asthe scene of his Liniversity studies. If youwill try some other year, however, it mightbe managed.Meanwhile, why not have the meeting onthe same little farm. If you and Mrs.Morris could spare us a couple of days wecould show you something of this part ofPoland. If Mr. Osusky has gone home, itwould not be far for him to come. Do telihim that if he is ever in Poland he mustlook us up. It would not only be a pleasureto see a U. of C. classmate, but it is a realpatriotic duty to help establish cordial re-lations between Poland and Czechoslovakia.We are booked to be on the Baltic coastthe last ten days of July and could meetyou then at Danzig, if that could be broughtinto your line of march. There is splendidair-ship connection between Berlin and Danzig, along the sea part of the wav — one ofthe pleasantest trips I have ever made. Thereis also water connection from England viaDenmark. Copenhagen is an interestingcity and its environs — the combination ofbeautiful architecture and pastoral scenery —very interesting.If you refuse to be tempted into this partof the world the best I can do is to forwardyour letter to Adda Eldredge and suggestthat she meet you in Paris as my proxy.Though she isn't our class she is only once(Please turn to page 45)34SCHOOL OF EDUCATIONSamuel Chester ParkerA memorial service was held in MandelHall on August 10, 1924, for ProfessorParker, who died on July 21.

As usuai,the Maroons confined themselves primarilyto a lineplunging attack and were eminentlysuccessfully at it. The improvement of theline over its showing against Missouri, inwhich game the Tigers were victorious bya 3-0 score, was caused mainly by the trans-fering of Gowdy to center from his oldberth at tackle.

Read his story onthis page.^ me story of a manwho started at scratchTHIS IS A STORY for any collegeman who hopes ever tobe in business for himself.Graduating from Williams College,C. S. A. Williams started in a humblecapacity with the Thomas A. Edisonindustries, and worked himself up thruthe grades of assistant foreman, department head, and production manager.Finally he was appointed Chief Store-keeper for the Phonograph Division.It was good progress. It provedthat Mr. Williams would eventuallyattain to large success.But Mr. Williams was not satisfiedto attain to large success eventually.Looking about him for a means ofhastening his progress, he found theAlexander Hamilton Institute.In his letter asking to be enrolledfor the Course and Service, he said:"I want to get a thoro knowledge ofmanufacturing along ali lines, with theidea of sometime going into businesson my own account."Soon there were more promotions.And then carne the inevitable climax. Mr. Williams was made a Presidentin his own right. He became ownerand executive head of the Bates Manufacturing Company, manufacturersof the Bates Numbering Machine.From Storekeeper to President insix years! It is a fine record; and yetit is what any earnest man can accomplish who knows how to push hard,and how to take advantage of everyavailable outsìde agency.Mr. Williams would have succeededwithout the Alexander Hamilton Institute. The Institute cannot make fail-ures into successes overnight, or turnweak men into strong.The Institute exists to aid men whoare already on their way to success, tobring them the Joy of succeeding whilethey are stili young. Eighty thousandof its subscribers are college men. Bymeans of reading, problems and personal advice, it gives themthat working knowledgeof ali departments ofbusiness which otherwisewould be theirs only after years of practical experience.The difference between early andlate success in every ambitious man'slife Iies most of ali in one thing: has he,or has he not, a definite pian for hisbusiness progress?You believe, as ali men do, that youwill be successful.

Position.48 The University of Chicago Magazine©S&Co.Eighteen dollars— cash!Seventy years ago a New England farm boyborrowed eighteen dollars from his father andwith the money bought a heifer.He killed and dressed the animai himself.Then, from an old covered wagon, he sold themeat through the streets and vicinity of the quiet,quaint village of Barnstable, Massachusetts.Evening found him with an empty wagon.His business venture had netted him ten dollarsprofit.The heifer was the first of millions of animalsthat have since been bought, turned into beefand sold, not at the backdoors of a village, butin the markets of the world.For the boy was Gustavus F. Sv ìft, founderof Swift & Company.* * *"For his heifer "Stave" Swift paid cash. To this daySwift & Company stili pays cash for the animals itbuys. Throughout the year, at convenient places, theiarmer is furnished a constane cash market.^Thus a business prìnciple.established by a boy, stiliobtains, not only with Swift & Company but with theentire meat packing industry.In other respects, however, the fresh meat businessof today offers sharp contrasts with this transactionof seventy years ago. The latter, purely locai in char-acter, was typical of the times.Out of such one-man, one-town business has grownthe nation-wide industry of today. Cattle are nowbought in practically ali parts of the country and themeat sold almost everywhere. And the naturai resultis nation-wide competition.The modem large packer is forced to compete inevery community, not only with other large packers,but with small packers and locai butchers as well.It is partly due to this wide and sharp competitionthat people in non-producing regions now pay less formeat grown on distant ranges than they would formeat raised near their homes. And it is partly due topacking house efficiency, which turns every part of ananimai ìntosomething of commercial value.Under the conditions formerly prevailing G.F. Swiftearned a ten dollar profit on his investment of eighteendollars. Contrast this, if you will, with Swift & Com-pany's average profit of only a fractìon of a cent a poundfrom ali sources, amounting to about six per cent peryear on the total stockholders' investment.Swift & CompanyFounded 1868A nation-wide organization owned by morethan 46,000 shareholders To Horace B.
