XVII DECEMBER, 1924 No. 2ABOUT two weeks ago a booklet en-titled "A New Epoch at the Universityof Chicago," was mailed to the Alumni. - Itset forth briefly a history ofA New the main developments in re-Epoch lation to the progress of theUniversity since its founda-tion, the aims and purposes of the Universityas outlined by the present administration,and the needs in seeking to realize thoseaims and purposes. By this time the Alumni,through the information contained in thebooklet, will have realized the situation con-fronting the University and its fair positionin seeking financial and other cooperationfrom the citizens of Chicago and the middlewest and from Alumni everywhere.As the booklet clearly points out, the University is now on the threshold of a newepoch — a new epoch in the sense of muchneeded expansion and progressive develop-ment of its exceptional services in research,education, and social welfare in general.Under the leadership of President Burton,who, as third President, is stimulating theinauguration of the new epoch, the Committee on Development, composed of Trus-tees, .Faculty members, and Alumni, hasbeen laboring for months in preparation fora campaign. The year 1925, now before us,will witness ali organizations and forces inaction, with the great and single aim ofdoing everything possible to bring the de-sired program of the University to earlyrealization. We are sure we need not teli ourAlumni that the brief but inspiring historyof their Alma Mater, its Constant and dis-tinctive contribution to knowledge, education, and society, and its unique opportu-nities in meeting many special responsibili-ties, fully justify its frank request for directand constructive financial assistance. We are likewise confident that our Alumni, withdeepest appreciation of their University, itsworld-wide influence, and its service tothemselves and to others, will cooperateloyally and helpfully in fullest measure."For Chicago — We Will!"Perhaps the most remarkable ' footballseason in the history of the Western Confer-ence has just recently closed. It was aseason of surprises and "up-Conference sets," with a "free for ali"Champions race for leadership that con-tinued up to the last gun ofthe last game. When the season ended, Chicago, with three victories and three ties toits credit, lead the percentage column as theonly undefeated team in the Conferenceseries. This gives Chicago the WesternConference Football Championship for 1924.It is the first championship Chicago has wonsince 1913, and we are happy to congratulateMr. Stagg and his team.Undoubtedly the Championship was not ofthe "undisputed" , kind that Chicago andother Conference teams have won in thepast. There was lacking that invincible all-around power which carries a team alongwith a rush throughout the entire seasonand succeeds in working up an impressivesuccession of victories which leaves no roomfor doubt in any quarter. But in the kind ofseason just closed — when teams seemed ableto give their ali in one game, only to havenothing left to give in the next game — whenteams that were thus temporarily "down"and out-of-form had to struggle with teamsthat were decidedly "set" for their particulargame — when every week-end, consequently,brought its unexpected reverses on manyfields — it is decidedly to the credit of any5354 The University of Chicago Magazineteam that it went through such a season un-defeated.To win a championship there must besomething in a team that distinctly marks itsstrength. For Chicago, that something wasits remarkable line. From tackle to tackle,according to most ali experts, Chicago hadthe most powerful line in the Conference,if not in the country. No team was able todrive over a touchdown through that line,despite the fact that almost every teamChicago played had real opportunities to doso but a few yards from the goal line andwith first down.To Coach Stagg must go the majorhonors for the team's acliievement. The be-ginning of the season found almost a newline to be built up, and practically a "green"back-field. No one predicted a championship of any kind for Chicago. Yet the"Old Man" succeeded in moulding a teamthat worked and played like a team. Therewas no brilliance on Chicago; no individuaiwho completely overshadowed his teammates; no single player upon whom the teamcontinually relied for victory. And through-out, especially when things were "going thewrong way," the team kept together, foughttogether, and by unstinting effort averteddefeat of any kind, together. And avertingdefeat under many circumstances is quite asmuch a part of "championship performance"as is winning games. We are proud of theTeam, and more than ever proud of the Old Man! Again and again, we congratulatethem.* * *Within a fortnight the Holidays will behere. The Alumni officers, the University,and the Magazine, we know, would ali liketo send you personal greet-The Season's mes- But as our larSe rnem-Greetings bership, our "family" num-bering thousands, precludessuch direct messages of good cheer andgood wishes, we take this occasion to extendto you ali the Season's Greetings. We wishfor you ali, most sincerely, a Merry Christ-mas and a Happy New Year!At this time, too, we feel assured that youwill join us most heartily in wishing ourAlma Mater a Happy New Year — happy inthe knowledge that her exceptional servicesand inspiring purposes, "for decades and forcenturies," are profoundly appreciated;happy in the ready cooperation she so fullydeserves for the earliest possible realizationof her high aims; happy in the firm con-viction that, in the hour of pressing need,her sons and daughters everywhere, theAlumni, will stand by her faithfully. At thiscoming New Year, let us ali make and up-hold one great resolve — that as Alumni, wewill prove wholly worthy of the trust ourUniversity places in us. Again, a HappyNew Year to you, and a great and HappyNew Year to Alma Mater!Congregational Theological SeminaryThe view shows the new Seminary buildings, on the north-west corner of 58th Streetand Woodlawn Avenue, a few months ago. The building is now completed and in fulluse. The Congregational Seminary is the largest of the several theological schools affil-iated with the University. Its imposing structure is a notable addition to the buildingsat the University.) The Committee on Development \\ . . . . „ lANNOUNCEMENT of the University's$17,500,000 development program for1925 has been greeted by the press, and inother quarters as well, by comments thatshow how definitely the University is nowrecognized as an institution of Chicago andthe middle west. These comments includesuggestions that the program is both far-reaching, courageous, and vital to the progress of education in the United States. Theadjectives apply even more, it may be said,to the longer perspective of development,which involves doubling the resources of theUniversity in fifteen years.A program born of vision and couragemight well be expected to issue from such agroup of men as constitute the Committeeon Development, the personnel of which wasmade public along with other details of theprogram.A man concerned with the campaign, whohas attended nearly ali the meetings of thiscommittee, said the other day:"I have seen many groups of citizens inconsultation, on business, educational andphilanthropic undertakings, but seldom haveI been in contact with a body so earnest, sodignified, and so full of vigorous optimism.in thè best sense of that word, as this Committee on Development."The nucleus of this committee really be-gan its work very early in 1924, when a consultation with President Burton, a survey ofthe needs of the University was made, andpreliminary plans were studied for meetingthese needs. Meetings were held from timeto time, throughout the summer, and thestructure of the campaign was determinedupon. With the return of President Burtonfrom England in September the committeegathered increased headway, and made im-portant additions to its membership. Soonthereafter the important question of apermanent chairman of the committee wasdecided. Mr. Albert W. Sherer had actedmost ably as acting chairman, but it was inaccordance with his own wish that anothershould occupy the chair during the campaignproper. Mr. Robert P. Lamont acceptedthis post as the unanimous choice of thecommittee, and his acceptance gave addi-tional enthusiasm to its conferences.The Committee on Development is com-posed of the following:Robert P. Lamont, chairman; President,American Steel Foundries Company, a corporation with establishments in many partsof the country; he is a man of great insightand far-reachine business connections, and profoundly interested in the progress of theUniversity.Albert W.

'09; prominent5556 The University of Chicago Magazineattorney; Chairman of the Lawyers Committee.John Fryer Moulds, '07, Cashier of theUniversity and Assistant Secretary of theBoard of Trustees, was appointed executivesecretary.The committee, having the continuouscounsel since September 1, of Dr. John Y.Aitchison, Assistant to the President, hasmet at least every fortnight, has heard re-ports from ali sub-committees, and has laiddown the principles of the campaign. These,as everyone knows who has followed thepress reports, rest primarily upon the con-ception expressed by President Burton inhis published statement, briefly as follows:"We aim not to create the wealthiest, northe largest, of American universities, as reports have had it. What we seek is to buildthe best possible university for service inthe region and in the particular fields whereits opportunities and responsibilities He."Commenting editorially on this statement,The Chicago Tribune of Nov. 25 said:"That is modestly and wisely said, andindicates that the University of Chicago hasreached a point at which its larger policiesare more or less determined and await adequate means to develop them. The institu-tion may be said to have passed out of itsfounding period, its adolescence, and to beready to realize its own character and special functions."President Swift, of the board of trustees,in the same public announcement, said:"It has been apparent for some time thatthe university could not carry on its work,meeting the continually growing demands ofthe region which it serves, without greatlyincreased funds. It desires to pay to mem-bers of its faculty salaries commensuratewith their services; it desires to engagésome of the world's best teachers and re-search workers. Hence its ambition to ob-tain new endowment, and then to providenew buildings to meet some of the mostserious needs as regards facilities for work."Mr. Swift emphasized the fact that JohnD. Rockefeller made his final contributionin 1910, accompanying this with a letter inwhich he consigned the University to thegenerosity of its friends in Chicago and theWest. Mr. Swift also said:"The University of Chicago is determinedto maintain its high standards; but despiteits fine educational equipment, it finds dif-ficulty in maintaining these standards. Ifthe University is to develop correspondinglywith the growth of the community, to carefor its great body of students, and to keeppace with the advances in the realm ofhigher education, it must succeed in thepresent effort." In laying out the development program,the question of endowment has been keptsteadily in the foreground. This is largelybecause of the imperative need of caring forproblems in connection with salaries of thefaculties; both in retaining and rewardingexcellent service by members of the presentfaculties, and obtaining the services of dis-tinguished men to strengthen the variousdepartments. The figure for endowment,which is the first item of the program, is$6,500,000, "for endowment of teaching andresearch," of which $500,000 is specificallyfor the work of the colleges.Following this item comes the buildingprogram, which after much deliberation hasbeen officially announced as follows:Buildings :1. Buildings needed tocarry on instructionand research effec-tively :Modem languagebuilding $1,000,000Social science building 1,000,000Chemistry 800,000Mathematics, astron-omy and physicsbuilding 800,000College of education 1,000,000$4,600,0002.

In themeantime the splendid project is publiclylaunched, and alumni of the University,studying the roster of men who have incharge, and have so earnestly at heart, thisgreat forward step, cannot fail to acquireincreased confidence in the success of themovement.| Alumni Campaign Executive Committee |MONTHS of consideration were devotedto the selection of an Alumni Campaign Executive Committee which ade-quately could supplement the Committee onDevelopment of the University in its mani-fold and nation-wide duties. It was neces-sary," obviously, to create a committee ex-perienced and prominent in Alumni affairs,men and women who could devote muchtime to the work required, and thus createa needed active and steadily working centraigroup. Recently the results of this studywere announced, the list appearing, amongothers, in the booklet on "A New Epoch atthe University of Chicago" mailed toAlumni about two weeks ago. We find arepresentative group of "old grads," readyand gladly willing to inaugurate the workin their respective sections of the countryand in the campaign in general.Herbert P.

Wrather, '07, geologist,Dallas, Texas.George E. Fuller, '09, has bèen engaged as Executive Secretary of the Alumni Committee.There is no group of our Alumni any-where who, in reading this list of names,will not recali one or more, if not ali ofthem, as familiar names in Alumni activi-ties throughout the years of our history. Aliof these Chicagoans have been active aitdprominent in their undergraduate days invarious ways; ali have served on AlumniCouncil, Reunion, Alumni Clubs, Classes,and other phases of Alumni endeavor. Theirready and loyal acceptance of the tasks andresponsibilities involved in this great move-ment on behalf of the University is butcharacteristic of their long-known attitudeand services.The campaign organization which theyare rapidly building up and which is aboutto function has effected a new kind of"alumni reunion" everywhere. There havebeen banquets, Shanty ceremonies, and"what not" in the past, steadily furtheringclass and University spirit, as well as football and other locai and club celebrations,large and small, gathering the Alumni together in the interests of the University.Now comes a great, united effort — and theAlumni are responding quickly and mostencouragingly from ali sections of the country.This new cooperative enterorise bringsthe Alumni a new job: one that supplementsand promises to carry out most successfullythe suggestions of many years of class gath-erings, club meetings, officiai conferences,and Alumni reunions. Athletic "stars," former Maroon "editors," social "lights," Black-friar "ladies," "grinds," former "undergrad"and former "grad" students — bachelors, mas-ters, doctors — now become business menand women, husbands, housewives, lawyers,teachers, physicians, professors, financers,journalists, artists — ali are joining in the onegreat, common purpose for the welfare andadvancement of the University. For backof the "get-together" ideas of the past hasalways been, in their minds and hearts, themore fundamental idea of "get-together" onbehalf of the "City Gray that ne'er shalldie" whenever the need may come.The task which this Committee, alreadyworking for many weeks past, undertakesis not only the greatest ever undertaken byour Alumni, but measures up to any similartask ever assumed by the Alumni of anyUniversity. But "task" is, indeed, a mis-nomer — it is an opportunity, a rare and trulygreat constructive, educational opportunity.Under their leadership we feel assured thatour Alumni, in a profound spirit of appre-ciation and loyalty, will bring to pass therealization of many of the University's high-est aims7ALUMNI AFFAI R SMoving Pictures of the University for theAlumni ClubsDuring the last few weeks some movingpictures of the University have been takenfor use at Alumni Club meetings this year.The pictures are now being completed andwill be ready for club use after the first ofJanuary. These pictures will show both newand old buildings, exteriors and interiors,well-known members of the various faculties,the football team, the Ulinois-Chicago game,designs of new buildings, and other featuresconnected with the University. For someyears our various clubs have been requestingsuch pictures for their meetings and withina few weeks this request will be met. Thosewho have seen the film, as it was being madeup, regard it as the best film ever made ofan educational institution. We feel surethat ali of our clubs will greatly enjoy "see-ing Chicago" again through these pictures.Baltimore Alumni Club OrganizedLast Monday night, November third, theredined at the Peggy Stewart Tea Rooms atBaltimore, a group of thirty-four ChicagoAlumni, gathered together largely throughthe industry and enthusiasm of Miss MollieRay Carroll, '11, Ph.D., '21.The guests of honor of the evening wereProfessor and Mrs. Harold G.

There were thirtyChicago alumni present. Dr. Alfred Wishardtacted as toast master. Dr. Freeman, thespeaker of the evening, inspired us with anyambition we lacked, by giving us an outlineof the active program being carried on at the University.

C.Three hundred Alumni of the Universitiesof the Big Ten Football Conference who areliving in the Capitol City gathered in thebig ballroom of Hotel Raleigh on historicPennsylvania Avenue on Saturday evening,November 22d, to learn who had won thechampionship of the football Conference for1924 and hold a grand celebration.At nine o'clock the football scores wereannounced to the accompaniment of burstsof applause and cheering. As each school'sprowess on the gridiron was announced, thegroup representing that school sought aplace of prominence in the ballroom andsang the songs of the school and did somelusty cheering. Chicago, though fewer innumbers than Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota, was there with the school spirit and"pep" — to celebrate Chicago's victory. Chicago having won the championship of theseason, the Chicago group, headed by ourDr. Harold G. Moulton, president of theChicago Club in Washington, and Mrs.Moulton, had the honor of leading the grandmarch which initiated the festivities of theevening. The grand march broke into thedance in which the three hundred revelleduntil the hour of midnight. Harvey's orchestra, under the direction of T. Harveyof Purdue, who was also Chairman of theRound-Up Committee for 1924, furnishedmusic quite in keeping with the spirit ofcelebration which characterized the dance.The enthusiasm which marked Washing-ton's Fourth Big Ten gathering indicatesthat the Big Ten idea in Washington hascome to stay. Each year the gathering hasgrown in interest and in numbers. A per-manent Big Ten organization for Washington is being discusseci.The Chicagoans in Washington suggestthat Chicago win the football championshipagain next year. They like to lead the grandmarch.Alumni Affairs 59Cleveland Club Meetings — New OfficersThe annual meeting of the University ofChicago Alumni Club of Cleveland was heldat the Woman's Club on October 17th. Ata dinner attended by twenty-two the onlyman present was the guest of honor andspeaker of the evening, Dr. Ames of theDepartment of Philosophy at the University.The small attendance was due to the tre-mendous exodus taking place from townevery week end during the marvelous monthof October. The group though small wasmost enthusiastic and more grateful to Dr.Ames for giving his time during the greatinternational convention of the ChristianChurch then being held in this city.After an unusually delicious dinner a verybrief business meeting took place. The sec-retary's report was read followed by thereport of the nominating committee. Asthere was no opposing ticket the followingofficers were unanimously elected:President, Miss Neil Henry, '12, 20«4 East107th St., Cleveland, Ohio; Vice-President,Mr. W. H.

Cook,1706 Glenmont Road, Cleveland Heights,Ohio.The remainder of the evening was givenover to Dr. Ames' delightfully informai andhumorous talk on Recent Developments atthe University of Chicago. He touchedlightly on various phases of undergraduatelife, speaking with evident amusement ofthe "new woman" and where she will relegate "mere man." This carne as a result ofthe very feminine nature of the gathering.Dr. Ames objected not at ali to being theonly man present. He thoroughly» enjoyedit. But to go back to his talk — he dweltlargely on the new opportunities for researchwhich are rapidly developing in the graduateschool, pointing out the great strides inmedicine to be made possible by RushMedicai with its new equipment for research.This, he said, is more or less true of ali graduate departments in the University, wherebetter opportunities for research work areconstantly being opened.The meeting closed with a veritable ova-tion for Dr. Ames.Sincerely yours,Alice Loweth, '11,(Mrs. F.

Gertrude Emerson, '12, Addresses ChicagoAlumnae ClubThe Chicago Alumnae Club of the University of Chicago secured Gertrude Emersonto speak at its opening meeting of the fall,held at Auditorium number three of the ArtInstitute, Tuesday evening, December 9.Miss Emerson, a member of the class of1912, has spent a large part of the time sinceher graduation in studying conditions in theOrient, securing both material and slidesfor this lecture while on an expedition to theBuried City of Angkhor.She spent 1912-13 teaching English in theGovernment Railroad School of Japan,teaching in Miss Tsuda's school, and mak-ing a special study of Japanese poetry andculture, a study which became the basis ofnumerous magazine articles. After a secondtrip in 1915-16, which covered Japan, Chinaand Korea, she was chosen in 1920, in spiteof her youth and the fact she was a woman,to conduct a special expedition to securemotion pictures and magazine material. Thistrip covered the Orient from India to Korea.She saw India with Ghandi, and then withthe officiai British. In the Soudan she wasentertained by an Arab shiek, in Egypt, byLord Allenby. She went to Angkhor, inthe heart of Cambodia, during the dry season accompanied only by a native cook andsix Annamite Coolies, a trip taken againstthe advice of the combined foreigners ofIndo-China, and accomplished in part byaeroplane.Miss Emerson's father, Alfred Emerson,was archaeologist of the Chicago Art Institute, and in spite of her youth she was lastyear elected a Fellow of the Royal Geo-graphical Society.* * *Portland Alumni Club MeetingA reunion of alumni and former studentsof the University of Chicago who are livingin Portland, Oregon, was held on the evening of October 22'd, at the home of the President of the Chicago club, Dr. Frank LoxleyGriffin, '03, Professor of Mathematics atReed College. Between thirty and fortyguests were present, some of whom had notattended any of the previous meetings of theclub. The program of the evening wasreminiscent of the life of the University.Stunts portraying characteristics of the lifein various of the University buildings wereespecially clever, and a "rogues gallery" onthe walls composed of pictures of the University faculty revived old memories.The Club is planning to hold a dinner inPortland during the holiday season, at whichtime it is expected that a considerable number will be present from other parts of thestate. The secretary of the Club will begiaci to receive the names of any formerstudents of the University who have notreceived previous Communications from theClub.Yours very trulyJessie M.

Bowling, it seems, is nota "major sport" with University of Chicagomen. I have succeeded in finding only eightmen in Detroit who ever bowl. The othereleven Universities which have teams en-tered seem to have from twelve to twenty-five men from which to select a five-manteam.

When "Pete" Russell, who presided,started the program of the evening therewere dose to 600 alumni and guests inthe Grand Ball Room.Don Richberg, '01, read a "Prophecy"—which he claimed to have compiled after anexperience with a famous medium, who wentinto several trances for his benefit, at $5 pertrance — wherein he found a warning to theChicago team against something "Red."After a number of red-eyed "harrowing"experiences, however, he showed that "when-ever a Chicago team is 'licked' before thegame even starts it is almost sure to win."Then "Babe" Meigs, ex-'08, "Teddy" Linn,'97, France Anderson, '99, and JimmyTuohig, 1898-1998, proceeded to teli the teamwhat its thousands of followers and well-wishers expected of them in the cominggreat game.The Old Man wound up the program, withan announcement of the plans for a newField House on Stagg Field and the enlarge-ment of the field's seating capacity. Mr.Stagg was cheered and cheered, and the announcement of the new program in athleticsmet with great enthusiasm.

Tische, (Mrs. Francis F.) '01,.Secretary.NEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESTHE corner stone of the new DivinityBuilding, which occupies the spot for-merly known as Sleepy Hollow, was laidThursday, November 4th, by Dean ShailerMathews as the consummation of a veryimpressive ceremony conducted by President Ernest DeWitt Burton. "The stone isproperly and truly laid," were the words ofthe Dean, as the stone mason completed theleveling of the work. President Burton ad-dressed the members of the faculties andstudent councils, after which J. SpencerDickerson, secretary of the Board of Trustees announced the contents of the box de-posited in the cornerstone. The most note-worthy of the documents placed therein wasthe sealed photograph of the "unnamed donor" of funds with which to construct theedifice.Shortly after the ceremony incident_ tothe construction of the Divinity Building,officiai announcement was made to thestudent body through The Daily Maroopof the program for extension which the^ University is inaugurating, including details ofthe building and financial program.Early in November Dean Ernest HatchWilkins made announcement to the campusfraternities of a new ruling_ to take effectthis quarter, under the provisions of whichsuch organizations must maintain a schol-arship average of C or higher in order toretain ali their privileges. In case a frater-nity's average should sink to C — or lower,a severe penalty is to be imposed upon it,to be determined after study of the individuai case in band. The general average ofthe entire student body in a given quarteris B — and according to Dean Wilkins thepotential ability of the fraternity man is atleast that high. "A fraternity average ofC — is nothing less than disgraceful," saidthe Dean, "and the University can no longerpermit as low a fraternity average to passwithout clear and effective reprimand."The Undergraduate Council has takensteps to make the formai installatimi of classofficers, which was tried this year for thefirst time, a yearly custom which it is hopedwill become an institution and tradition.

The goal of ali Big Ten coaches,this title is now attached to Coach A. A.Stagg and his grid warriors after havingtaken a major part in one of the strangestfootball seasons the fans have ever wit-nessed.It really ali started when the Maroonsgot thoroughly "keyed up" for the affraywith Illinois, and, starting with the ball intheir possession, pounded the Mini line timeafter time with crushing, resistless playsthat ended up shortly with the ball restingover the downstaters' goal line. That wasthe first touchdown, and while the Chicagostands went wild, the Illinois rooters wereexperiencing the most utter bewilderment oftheir lives. Never had such a thing hap-pened. But just to show that it really hadhappened, the Staggmen again took the ballfrom the kickoff and repeated their bone-crushing performance with the result thatthe score read 14-0, in favor of the Maroons.Ali in the first quarter. Then things slowed up for Chicago. Grange, the most spectac-ular and most-feared player in the countrybegan to perform for Illinois.Chicago's warriors had been well-schooled.The "Old Man" had trained his men; heknew what to have them do and how toget them to do it. The Maroons immedi-ately put the entire burden of the work onGrange's_ shoulders by completely ruiningthe beautiful interference which Zuppke hadset up for him. And Grange carne through.He it was who made the three touchdownsthat enabled the Illini to come back and ticup things with the Maroons, the final scorereading 21-21, indicating another tally fromChicago. What Grange did, he did almostsingle-handcd, proving himself the mostdangerous opponent whom the Maroonsfaced this year.With the Illinois tie, Chicago began tohave more definite visions of a share in theConference title. But with the surprisethat was to occur the following week, shedecided it was up to her to annex the wholeaffair.62Athletics 63The game with Northwestern certainly didnot resemble the Illinois battle. Severaltimes the Purple threatened the Maroongoal line, and only the last-minute stiffeningwhich the Stagg lines seem to possess to anunusual degree was what prevented Northwestern from scoring. As for the Staggmen,they seemed to play hard, but were entirelyineffectual. Time after time they wouldobtain the pigskin, and start a march downthe field, only to have something interfere.Finally, in the last few minutes of play, thefans began to remember the Ohio Stategame. And again in a few seconds, theretrotted out onto the gridiron the slightfigure of Bob Curley, who had tied the Ohioscore with a dropkick. He generaled theteam to where he wanted it, dropped back.and booted the ball between the posts,making the first and last score of the game,which ended 3-0 for Chicago.The following week everything possiblewas done to "key" the men for the Wisconsin game, as they had been for the tilt withIllinois. Appearances indicated that theywould be, too. But when the day carneWisconsin, up until that time one of themost salient lame ducks of the Conference,brought to Stagg field a team that had spiritand power and tight, and they played theinsufficiently inspired Maroons to a scorelesstie, threatening the Stagg goal posts threetimes by getting down within a minute number of yards, only to have the breaks goChicago's way.Following the season's end, the team metand was awarded "C's" and a new captainelected. Frederick "Bub" Henderson wasthe choice for 1925's leader, finding competi-tion from Austin McCarty and ElmerLampe.The new captain is from Butte, Montana,and has an excellent record behind him.having played on the St. John's team atDelafield, Wisconsin in 1919 when he wasbut 15 years old, with an eleven that wasconsidered one of the best in the country atthat time. Henderson entered the University in 1922, and formed a powerful factorin the freshman line. He became a Varsityman in 1923, but was not recognized asthe fine player he is until he got into theIllinois game at Urbana-Champaign. Thisyear "Bub" has been hindered considerablyby a game knee, but when allowed to playhe has come through in great style. Sincethe Indiana battle he has been in ali thegames except the Northwestern battle, atsome time or other.Henderson is a protege of Chuck McGuire,captain of the team which defeated Princeton in 1921 and All-American tackle onWalter Camp's eleven that year. He is sixfeet two in height, weighs two hundred andfive pounds, and has gained in the aggres-siveness which some critics said he lackedlast year.Twenty-two men were awarded "C's", twelveof them for the first time. Coach Staggannounced that gold footballs emblematic ofthe championship, would be_ awarded the"C" men. The men who received the mono Fred Henderson, '26, TackleCaptain-elect for 1925 Football Teamgrams are: Fred Hobscheid, Martin Pokrass,Aubrey Goodman, Harry Frieda, RussellEmrich, Sam Hibben, Eugene Francis, Walter Marks, Thorpe Drain, John Long, Frederick Law, Graham Kernwein, and FeliceCaruso, for the first time: Captain FranklinGowdy, Harry Thomas, Robert Curley, JoePondelik, Harrison Barnes, Phil Barto, Ros-well Rolleston, Fred Henderson, AustinMcCarty, and Bill Abbott, veterans.At the dose of the season, Chicago wasthe only undefeated eleven in the Big Ten.The schedule and scores for the entireseason follow: Chicago-Missouri, 0-3; Chi-cago-Brown, 19-7; Chicago-Indiana, 23-0;Chicago-Ohio State, 3-3; Chicago-Purdue,19-6; Chicago-Illinois, 21-21; Chicago-North-western, 3-0; Chicago-Wisconsin, 0-0.The total attendance at the games onStagg Field was approximately 180,000, over30,000 being out-of-town spectators. Thelargest delegation of the latter carne fromthe University of Wisconsin, 10,300; with9,600 representing Illinois.BasketballForty aspirants to positions on the cagesquad are hard at work, as the basketballpractice season opens. The Michigan Ag-gies, December 20, and the Navy, December30, are the first pair of formidable opponentson the Maroon schedule, and with three veterans on the floor, Coach Norgren visualizesone of the best teams in years. HarrisonBarnes, twice All-Conference forward, center "Babe" Alyea, and Captain "Bill" Weissat guard, form the nucleus for a promisingfive.

Wilkins ]November 28, 1924:TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1924Dear Friends, Acquaintances, and UnknownFaces in Last Year's Thursday Chapel-Sea:Several things have come through thisautumn which are I think distinctly to thegood, and some of them are the result ofplans or movements which you initiated ortook active part in, so you may perhaps liketo hear a little about them.We started off this fall with a "FreshmanWeek." College opened on a Wednesday,and we had ali the Freshmen come the pre-ceding Thursday. We got the registrationdone on Thursday and Friday, had the phys-ical examinations very nearly finished beforecollege opened, and gave the Freshmenorientation talks, miscellaneous information,English tests, and intelligence tests. Theywere welcomed by a considerable series ofentertainments sponsored by various organi-zations — including evening parties, a generalreception, a football game, a mixer, sight-seeing tours of the University, etc. The fraternities did practically ali their rushing during this same period. By the time collegeopened, the Freshmen were well settled,wisely (we hope) advised, cordially welcomed, and ali ready to start right in withthe real work of the college.For the sixty Freshmen who gave mostpromise of success, we are giving a newspecial two-Quarter course called "The Nature of the World and of Man," which is in-tended to give them a well proportionedbackground for ali their later thinking andstudying. The subjects treated are: The Nature and Structure of Matter, The Nature ofChemical Processes, The Origin of theEarth, The Earth's Changing Contours andClimate, The Earth as the Home of Life,The Nature and Origin of Life, The Evolu-tion of Plants, The Evolution of the LowerAnimals, The Evolution of the Higher Ani-mais and of Man, The Factors of OrganicEvolution, The Human Body (Anatomy andPhysiology), The Evolution of the NervousSystem, The Evolution of the Intelligence,Human Races, Social Origins, and Race Im-provement. Each of these subjects is treatedin lectures and discussions by the men oncampus best qualified to present that sub-ject to Freshmen. Some of the men co-operating are Professors Lemon, Stieglitz,Moulton, Chamberlin, Coulter and Cowles.F'rofessor Newman and Bretz are in generalcharge of the course, which is arousing greatinterest among the students taking it.We have at last a Director of Activities —Frank O'Hara, of the class of 1915. Hisappointment is in large part a direct out-come of the work of Better Yet Committee No. 8, on The Direction of Student Activities, and of the petition circulated by thatcommittee and signed by many studentsMr. O'Hara was the man suggested by namein the report of that committee. He is giving half his time to the work of directingand advising the publications and dramaticorganizations, and is teaching one coursethis Quarter — a practical course in play-writing. The University has authorized theuse of the Reynolds Club Theatre for re-hearsals and dramatic experiments by bothmen and women, under Mr. O'Hara's direction. The Dramatic Club's program is start-ing splendidly. About one hundred and fiftypeople turned out to try for parts in the castor management of the first play.We are simplifying the eligibility ruleswith regard to intramural student activities(publications; etc.) by waiving the old "12month 9 major 14 gradepoint or 2 Quarter6 major 9 gradepoint" rule which has ledto so much trouble in the past, and havesubstituted for it the practical rule that aman is ineligible if his record as a wholeis below the standard required for gradua-tion, that is, if his average is below C.Almost everybody was dissatisfied withthe debating situation last year, partly be-cause the debates were of such a narrow andformai type, partly because so few peoplewere interested in them, and partly becausethe award of scholarships to debaters seemedto professionalize the whole pian. Following suggestions coming from members ofBetter Yet Committees No. 3 and 4, we aregoing to try experiments this year in debating of a less formai type. We hope todevelop a type of gathering in which notjust a few, but many speakers will partici-pate, and in which the speaking will be morefree and easy and flexible. We have there-fore withdrawn from the Triangular Leaguefor this year. We are also discontinuing theaward of scholarships to debaters. HaroldLasswell, of the class of 1922, has been ap-pointed as Director of Debating.Class elections are on a much better andmore democratic basis than before, thanksto the abolition of class tickets. This wasone of the recommendations of Better YetCommittee No. 12. In the Freshman elections over 800 students voted, and in theupper class elections the percentage of vot-ing was very high.The work of Better Yet Committee No15 has borne excellent fruit in the appointment by the President, on nomination bythe several fraternities, of a complete set offaculty fraternity counsellors. In accordancewith one of the particular recommendationsof that committee, the whole group of counsellors has started meeting at regular times6566 The University of Chicago Magazineto discuss fraternity problems, and has ap-pointed committees which, acting with student committees of the Interfraternity Council, will study special problems of fraternitylife. I think the establishment of the bodyof fraternity counsellors as a working organization will be a very good thing for aliconcerned.Phi Kappa Psi has taken a very notableprogressive step in the appointment of ahouse mother, who will live in the chapterhouse and take the many sorts of care andresponsibility that a mother takes in a home.The men will certainly live more economi-cally, more healthily, more comfortablymore normally, and in general more happilyunder this arrangement. This pian hasworked well in other universities in which ithas been tried; and with the right woman incharge — and it is clear that Phi Kappa Psihas found a woman excellently qualified forjust this work — it should prove to be a greatthing. for the fraternity.As a measure intended to raise fraternityscholarship, and after conference with agroup of students representing the Interfraternity Council, I have ruled that anyfraternity which hereafter sinks to a C —level for a given Quarter will be severelypenalized, probably by the withholding ofsocial privileges or of the right to initiatefor the following Quarter.Intramural athletics are booming under anew, elaborate, and excellent organizationThe work of Better Yet Committee No. 24was of value in this connection.

Designed by the architects, Coolidgeand Hodgdon, it will be in the sanie style ofcollegiate Gothic as the other buildings ofthe University and will be of Bedford lime-stone.The subjects for the decorative carvingson the exterior and interior have been drawnfrom examples of religious buildings, andevents of common interest will also be in-corporated in the symbolic treatment of itsdecorations.The first fìoor will contain the administra-tive offices of the Dean, a large lecture room,and offices of the Faculty. One of the in-teresting features of the first floor is thelarge common room to be used by thestudents and the Faculty for a lounge andfor social gatherings. Finished with oak-paneled walls and decorated ceilings, itstracery, windows of leaded glass, and carvedstone fireplace will give it the atmosphere ofan artistic and attractive meeting place.There will also be a common room, espe-cially designed for women, on the secondfloor and class and seminar rooms on boththe second and third floors.The library on the third floor, will havethe height of two stories and will be roofedwith open timber work and carved oaktrusses, and be lighted from three sides.The cost of construction is approximately$500,000, and the date of completion is set atAugust 1, 1925.The cornerstone was laid with appropriateceremonies on Thursday, November 6th, atwhich President Burton, Dean ShailerMathews, and Dr. J. Spencer Dickerson,Secretary of the Board of Trustees, officiated."The new Theology Building at the University of Chicago," in the words of President Ernest DeWitt Burton at the laying_ ofthe corner stone, "testifies to the convictionthat society stili needs the spiritual andsocial leader. The man who not only hasa message to utter from the pulpit, but isable every day in the week to take a leadingpart with his fellows in the endeavor tomake this a better world for children to beborn into and to live in, a better world forali of us to spend our days in. "For religion is not only a creed or anaspiration or an emotion. It is also a life,and a social force."In the corner stone of the new building,which is to be one of the most beautiful onthe quadrangles, were placed portraits of theanonymous donor, President Ernest DeWittBurton, and Dean Shailer Mathews, of theDivinity School.* * *Largest Attendance in History of UniversityThe largest registration of students in itshistory is officially reported from the University.In the Graduate School of Arts and Litera-ture there are 634 students enrolled, and inthe Ogden Graduate School of Science 497,a total of 1,131.In the Senior Colleges there are 1,020students, and in the Junior Colleges (includ-ing the Unclassified) 1,577, a total of 2,597.The total in Arts, Literature, and Scienceis 3,728.In the Professional Schools there are 191Divinity students, 219 in the Medicai Courses,320 Law students, 225 in Education, 495 inCommerce and Administration, and 57 inSocial Service Administration, a total of 1,-507.

Ryerson, of Chicago. Fewof the libraries of England possess a collec-tion of equal extent and continuity, accord-ing to University authorities in Englishliterature and history.In the middle of the sixteenth centurySir Nicholas Bacon, afterward lord keeperof the great seal under Queen , Elizabeth,acquired a large estate surrounding the hunt-ing lodge of the Abbot of Bury St. Ed-munds, which had been in the possession ofthe monastery since before the Conquest.He received the deeds, charters, manor rollsand other documents connected with theproperty. Through his eldest son, Nicholas,who was a half-brother of Lord FrancisBacon, the properties and documents werefurther increased, until at the end of theseventeenth century they had passed intothe hands of Sir Thomas Holt, father ofLord Chief Justice Holt.The collection, covering more than fivecenturies and throwing new light on social,economie, and industriai conditions, includesover a thousand deeds, of which 400 are onvellum. There are also 741 court and com-putus rolls of nineteen manors in Norfolkand Suffolk, from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries, and also 143 family lettersof the Bacon family.Among historical personages who eithersigned or both wrote and signed some ofthese letters are Sir Edward Coke, the greatlawyer; Lord Chief Justice Holt, FrancisRussell, Thomas Sackville, and Sir FrancisWalsingham, secretary of state to QueenElizabeth.* * *Recent Gifts to the UniversityThe class of 1924 as its class gift haspresented to the University of Chicago anornamentai clock to be erected over thecast door of Cobb Lecture Hall.

The stone was given by Mr. E.A. Buzzell, '86, an alumnus of the old University of Chicago.* * *Headquarters of Orientai Institute Com-pleted at LuxorAccording to a cablegram received byDirector James Henry Breasted, of theOrientai Institute of the University, theheadquarters for the Institute have just beencompleted at Luxor, Egypt. This building,orientai in architecture, with its east frontoverlooking the Nile, has been erected at acost of $15,000' and equipped with completeapparatus for photographic work and sdentine research connected with the making ofa permanent record of thousands of ancientinscriptions on tempie walls near the tombof Tutenkhamon. In charge of the buildingwill be a Doctor from the Department ofEgyptology, Professor Harold H. Nelson,head of the department of history in theAmerican University at Beirut, Syria.After lectures at Amherst College, Cornell University, and before the National Geo-graphic Society at Washington, DirectorBreasted will sail early in January for Egypt,where he will go into the ancient Thebancemetery near the Valley of the Kings toinaugurate the work of the University's newexpedition.He will make his home in the new headquarters of the Institute, and will have withhim a staff of three or four Europeansand Americans and fifteen workmen andservants. The house, built in a single storywith a dome over the main living-room forventilation, has a 140-foot front with a 65-foot arcade porch, and overlooks the Thebanplain and colossi of Meninoli, erected by anEgyptian king some fourteen hundred yearsbefore Christ.University Notes 69New Research Professor in EgyptologyThe leading Egyptologist of Great Britain,Dr. Alan H. Gardiner, has recently beenappointed by the board of trustees, ResearchProfessor of Egyptology in the Orientai Institute of the University. He has alreadybeen connected with the work of the Institute at Cairo ih the editing of the CoffinTexts and in the future will largely havecharge of this enterprise. Dr. Gardiner wil)also share in the work of the EpigraphicExpedition at Luxor, where he will laterjoin the staff in the new Luxor House ofthe Institute.In this connection it is of interest tonote that the University of Chicago has se-cured permanence for its headquarters atLuxor by not building on land • controliedby the Egyptian Department of Antiquities,but has bought a site which will remain theproperty of the University.New Appointments to the FacultiesOfficiai announcement is made of the following ne-w appointments to the facultieso'f the University of Chicago:Ralph H.

His subject was"Character in Fiction,"70 The University of Chicago MagazineTHE PROGRAM FOR ATHLETICDEVELOPMENTEndorsement by Director StaggOct. 17, 1924.To the Alumni:This announcement marks the realizationof our hopes for the development of athleticfacilities at the University. I have givencareful study to the preparation of this pianfor a field-house and increased permanentseating capacity for football which has nowbeen adopted by the Trustees. In my opinion it is an adequate and satisfactory solution of our difficulties and I commenti it toyou ali. We may now look forward to acomplete development of the field of whichwe ali may well be proud.Sincerely, A. A. Stagg.* 4 *The President and Trustees of The University of Chicago, after a thorough studyof questions involved in the development ofathletics, are now able to announce to thealumni and friends of the University impor-tant plans for building on Stagg Field.On account of the increasing demand forseats at athletic events the University twoyears ago adopted the policy of givingalumni and students priority in the selectionand purchase of seats.The alumni have had the best seats avail-able, but during these two years there hasbecome evident a rapidly growing need forseating capacity. Consequently, the President and Trustees of the University, throughtheir committee on Football Seating and inconsultation with Director A. A. Stagg andwith alumni, have been working toward asolution of the several problems involved.The University must have a baseball field,a running track, a new field-house, and muchIarger seating capacity for football. The dif-ficulty of adequately increasing the permanent seating capacity and stili retaining therunning-track and baseball field has been avery real one, but the Trustees believe thatthe pian adopted satisfactorily solves thisproblem.After conferences cxtending over a periodof many months, recommendations for im-proved facilities for indoor sports and increased seating capacity for the athletic fieldwere drawn up and these were adopted bythe Board of Trustees at their meeting heldOctober 16, 1924. There are two main divi-sions of the pian decided upon:1 — Erection of a Field House north of theFrank Dickinson Bartlett Gymnasium.2 — Tncrease in the seating capacity of StaggField.The Field HouseCareful study has convinced DirectorStagg and others cnncerned that the firstundertaking should be the erection of thefield-house. This building is an immediateneed in order that indoor sports and intra-mural athletics may continue to develop.The capacity of Bartlett Gymnasium hasbeen repeatedly overtaxed. Interest in intra-mural athletics is growing at the University,and the encouragement of them is consid- ered essential to the better development otthe colleges. This building, too, will provideampie seating capacity for basketball gamesand a mudi needed assembly hall for general University purposes. Director Stagghas for a long time urged the erection of afield-house. The plans for it will be foundedupon a personal inspection he recently madeof the best structures of the kind in thecountry.Many details remain to be worked out,but the decision has been reached that thefield-house shall stand between BartlettGymnasium and 56th Street, practically fill-ing the space there available. By vote of theTrustees, immediate steps are to be takenlooking toward the erection of this building.Increase in Seating CapacityIn dealing with this question, the Committee on Football Seating, Director Staggand others have examined various proposalswith a view to caring for the present andthe future. Projects involving removal ofthe field to an entirely new location havebeen among suggestions offered. The decision reached is that further development ofathletics shall be on and about Stagg Field.Reasons for this decision are:1 — Desirability of having the athletic field indose proximity to the educational andresidence buildings.2 — Necessity of reserving for educationalneeds of the University other land ownedby the University which otherwise mightbe available.The definite pian adopted for improve-ment is that the football field shall beturned about so that the length of the grid-iron will extend from east to west, insteadof from north to south.A large permanent grandstand will beerected along 56th Street. The present tem-porary stands along the east and south sidesof the field may continue in use, but theformer will eventually be replaced by permanent stands in front of Bartlett Gymnasiumand extending partially over the roof of thefield-house.When the present west stand is linked upwith those on the north and east sides ofthe field, there will result a U-shaped stand,which will have a total seating capacity esti-mated at 51,490 seats..Temporary or permanent stands may beemployed at the south end of the field. increasing the total capacity by 12,000 to17,000, depending upon the height of thesestands. Whatever the forni of this construction along 57th Street, it is considered thatit should be low enough to leave open aview to the south.Thus the total seating capacity to whichthose interested in athletics at the Universitymay look forward is estimated at between60,000 and 70,000. The seating capacitv atpresent is about 32,000.Financing, both of the field-house and ofthe improvements on Stagg Field, is to bemet frc" i*T-»i^+»^ furarleCOMMERCE AND ADMINISTRATIONFall Quarter Activities of the C. and A.Student AssociationO. Paul DeckerDURING the current quarter the StudentAssociation of the School of Commerceand Administration has instituted severalchanges of worth while character in its activities.The most significant change of policy hasbeen in connection with its system of outsidelecturers. In the past it was the custom toinaugurate discussion groups during the fallquarter, each group meeting twice a quarterto hear an outside lecturer in his field, anoafterwards to discuss the subject matter otthe lecture. At least that was the theory al-though perhaps it was not worked out com-pletely in practice.During the present quarter the Councildecided to institute a series of vocationallectures intended primarily for freshmen.The fundamental purpose has been to givethe entering students an appreciation of theproblems and possibilities in the differentfields of business at the time they enter college with the hope that they may havematerial upon which to be thinking in theirendeavor to decide upon the activity whichthey wish to follow after graduation. Makingthis selection rather early in their careergreatly simplifies the problem of concentra-tion and specialization in the last two yearsof their collegiate work.Outside LecturesOctober 9 — William H.

'17 read a paperwith the above title on October 27, 1924,before the Chicago Literary Club.The theme was the first Supreme Courtof Illinois which was elected by the legislature in 1918. The court consisted ofJoseph Phillips, Chief Justice, and John 1JReynolds, Thomas C. Browne and WilliamP. Foster, Associate Justices.The writer pointed out that while President Monroe was formulating the MonroeDoctrine and Chief Justice Marshall waspreparing his decision in the DartmouthCollege case, the Supreme Court of Illinoiswas holding that a criminal indictmentwhich stated the year without stating it tobe the year Anno Domini was void for lackof certainty. The paper concluded:"These judges lived and wrought theirwork on a piane of civilization severalstages below ours. Let us hope that ahundred years from now many of thedecisions of our present courts will thenseem as irrational as these early decisions seem to us. For, while it dragsthe anchor of rigid adherence to prece-dent, the law does progress. The deadhand of these pioneer judges stili guidesto some extent the decisions of ourcourts, but its grip is loosening. ALawrence, a Scholfield, and a Cart-wright have since sat upon that benchand gone far to purge it of its earlyhistory."At the Law SchoolRegistration in the Law School showslittle change. During the^ summer quarterit amounted to 190 students. The currentfigure is approximately 325, or about fiveless than a year ago. A much larger dropmight have been expected as the admissionrequirements for candidates for the LL.Bdegree now include at least two years ofcollege work, while hitherto, only one yearwas necessary.The Law School commenced in November, the issuing of the new Illinois Law Re-view, in_ conjunction with the Universityof Illinois and Northwestern University.Our faculty editors are Mr. E.

The University of ChicagoClub of Cincinnati, under the leadership ofE. L. Talbert of the University of Cincinnati, is taking an active part in the arrange-ments for the dinner. Readers of the Magazine living in the vicinity of Cincinnatishould communicate with Mr. Talbert.Tickets for the dinner are $3.00 each. Theyshould be secured in advance from WilliamS. Gray, School of Education, University ofChicago.ResearchThe Commonwealth Fund has made agrant of $15,000 for a study of foster chil-dren. The sum is to be divided equally between Dr. L. M. Terman of Stanford University and Dr. Freeman of the Universityof Chicago. Dr. Terman will compare foster children and their foster parents and Dr.Freeman will make a comparison betweenfoster children and their brothers and sis-ters. The purpose of both studies is todetermine whether the training and advan-tages which foster children receive enablethem to make a higher score on mentaltests than they presumably would bavemade otherwise. The study therefore is onephase of the general problem of the relationbetween heredity and environment in thedetermination of mental traits. Dr. Freeman will be assisted in his work by Dr.Holzinger.Faculty PersonalsMr. Gray is cooperating with the IllinoisValley Section of the Illinois StateTeachers' Association in organizing readingtests and practice exercises for use in theschools of five counties of the district.

Whilethe denizeh of the West remains complacent-ly sure of the superiority of his civilization,the Orientai, having seen the seamy side ofthat civilization, is finding himself unable toaccept the Occidental claim to superiority.In India Gandhi proclaims everything western to be pernicious, and M!ustapha Kemalin Turkey has given the West an exhibitionof military prowess. Today Islam looksupon the non-Mohammedan world as theworld of war — "Dar-el-Harb" — and believesin the ultimate triumph of Mohammedanarms.To watch the revolt or awakening of theOrient at dose quarters has been the expe-rience of Sir Valentine Chirol, who for fiftyyears has been a traveler in Turkey, Egypt,Persia, India, China, and Japan. From 1872to 1876 he was connected with the BritishForeign Office; in 1912 wasa member of theRoyal Commission in India; and was at-tached to the British Delegation at the ParisPeace Conference. Those who heard himpresent these lectures on the Harris Foundation at the University this summer, will re-member the vivid personal impressions hehas been able to give of the momentouschanges taking place in the Orient.Chirol covers the relations of the Occidentwith the three peoples of the Orient whosehistory has most intimately been interlockedfor centuries with the history of Westerncivilization : the Turks, Arabs, and Indians.The Turk appears most menacingin military strength, the Arab most admirable inhistoric intellectual development; and theIndian most striking in his reaction to theintroduction of Western education. Chirolhas greatly clarified the tangled story ofthe "Sick-Man" of Europe. It is the Arabhowever who appears as the genuinely at-tractive figure of the Orient .Chirol empha-sizes the debt of Western civilization to thegreat Arab, Averroes, through whom Aris-totle was reborn, and learning kept alive dus-ing a criticai period when the West wouldhave allowed it to perish.That the Arabs of Iraq were not grantedindependence is part of what Chirol calls"the great failure of European statesmanshipduring the five years following the war".The tale of post-war intrigue and jealousiesis not altogether to the credit of Occidental claims of superiority. America herself doesnot entirely escape censure. Chirol says:"Things might have been different hadAmerica with her line record of educationaland cultural activities in Turkey been willingto undertake mandatory responsibilitiy inArmenia."America was free from the heritage ofrivalries which was the great obstacle to thesuccess of the mandatory system as it actuallyworked out in Turkey, Egypt, Mesopotamiaand Syria. But America did not want toaccept mandatory responsibilities, and therivalries of the European powers allowedMustapha Kemal an opportunity to revivethe power of Turkey, while the oppresseciminorities were shamelessly abandoned.Chirol points out another factor that workedagainst the mandatory system's success: theOrientai "Old Adam" — the rule of the Orientai rake and despot, which particularly inTurkey and Egypt was a Constant source oftrouble. In the mandatory system itself,however, in spite of its defects, Chirol seesan advance in that:"For the first time, at the end of a greatwar in which enemy territories had beenconquered, the conquerors agreed not onlyto forego the right of sovereignty whichthey would formerly have claimed as a mat-ter of course, but to assume for them responsibilities of trusteeship under the super-vision of an independent authority."It is this new note of responsibility towardthe dominated peoples of the East that Chirolemphasizes in his discussion of the Britishexperiment in India. Yet he avoids thesuperciliousness of those who talk aboutthe "white man's burden" by dwelling lessupon -racial superiority than upon the practical necessities of the situation. The Britishexperiment in bringing Western education toIndia has passed into the stage of inevita-bility, ali Gandhi's efforts to bring about areturn to the old order of things, notwith-standing. Chirol tells of a conversation hehad with Gandhi, in which the latter wasunable to give him even a vague intimationof what India would be like if the longed-for "Swaraj" were to be attained.In concluding Chirol says: "Western education has been for the Orient the tree ofthe knowledge of good and evil". Certainlyit has created a situation of vast import tethe human race, and one in which the partof the West must be played between a veryreal menace and an equally real responsibility. "The Occident and the Orient", treatingthe situation clearly, with sympathetic analy-sis, and scholarly examination of the histor-ical factor. should contribute to a betterunderstanding of the great world problemsinvolved.Harry Bingham.75NEWS OFTHE CLASSESAND ASSOCIATIONSCollege Association Notes'18 — Bianche Hanna is teaching in theModem Language Department of Short-ridge High School, Indianapolis, Indiana.'19 — Mr. and Mrs. Harry B.

That the magazine is not thework of a small group, but of the entireSchool, is evidenced by the one-day campaign which was recently waged for studentsubscriptions. Without any prior publicityand with only three solicitors working,over fifty per cent of the entire studentbody subscribed. The campaign is stili being waged to bring the total subscriptionsamong the students as nearly as possible toone hundred per cent.The sale of the Journal off the campuscontinues to grow, and a number of mostsuccessful business men of the country aresubscribers.

Far too many of you live inlodgings round about the University whereyou inevitably miss many of the real benefitsof university life. We hope before long tobegin to meet this real need by buildingsacross the Midway. I hope we shall notcali them dormitories because we want themto be more than places to sleep. We hopeUniversity Notesthey will be so built and organized and conducted as to be powerful factors in theprocess of education. Perhaps we shall incorporate into them some of the best fea-tures of the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge. We may even cali them colleges, forit is our ambition to develop at the University of Chicago a better type of undergraduate life and education than is nowprovided here or anywhere in America."New Professor from University of OxfordDr. William A. Craigie, Rawlinson andBosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon in theUniversity of Oxford, has been appointedProfessor of the English Language in theUniversity of Chicago, according to a recentannouncement. Professor Craigie, who iseditor of the Oxford Dictionary and one ofthe greatest living authorities on the Englishlanguage, is expected to begin his new workwith the Autumn Quarter of 1925.With the coming of Professor Craigie is tobegin at the University a comprehensivestudy of the English language in America,the result to be the first "Dictionary ofAmerican English." Preliminary plans havebeen made by Professor John MatthewsManly, Head of the Department of English,and Associate Professor James Root Hul-bert, of the same department, by which theywill work in co-operation with Dr. Craigie,who gave special courses at the Universitythis summer in early northern English and"Methods of Making a Dictionary."Professor Manly explained the proposedresearch as including a study of Americandialects and their sources, and the effect ofimmigration upon the language. "There willbe an important historical value in the work,"he said, "since the character of the settlementof various parts of America is stili obscure,and the study of language sources is expected to throw light on many doubtfulpoints." The dictionary, which involves vastresearch by a large staff, will require at leastten years for completion.* * *Attend Inauguration of New President ofAmherstSeveral faculty members of the Universityof Chicago who are graduates of AmherstCollege attended the inauguration of President George D.

Sometwenty-one states of the Union were repre-sented, as follows: Colorado, Georgia,Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont,West Virginia, Wisconsin, and, of course,from many parts of Illinois.

Y., St. Louis, St.Paul, Springfield, IH., Toledo, and Washington, D. C. No detailed statistics have beencompiled, but the records indicate that addi-tional states and cities were represented atthe Wisconsin game. It is probable that forthe entire football season alumni visited theUniversity and attended the games from almost every large city and state in the Union.Dean Wilkins Addresses Alumni ClubsDuring the last month Dean Ernest H.Wilkins of the Colleges of Arts, Literatureand Science made a ten days' trip throughthe East. in the course of which he met withand addressed a number of the AlumniClubs.

Carrying on a movement that was be-gun several years ago, new Big Ten clubs arebeing organized in Charleston, W. Va., Cincinnati, O., Washington, D. C, and other places.In ali of these plans Chicago alumni are interested and active.New Law School Journal 85Law School Will Share in Editing NewLaw JournalA letter was recently sent out by DeanHall to alumni and former students of theLaw School, from which we quote:"Our alumni have sometimes asked whythe University of Chicago did not publish alaw journal. There have been several reas-ons for this. During its early years the LawFaculty was small, and the task of organiz-ing the School, mastering the curriculum,and creating good traditions of work leftscant time for such an enterprise. Up to thetime of the war the number of our alumniwas small to support such a journal, andwe were reluctant to ask the University toadd another to its already heavy burden ofsubsidized publications."Since 1906 Northwestern University haspublished the Illinois Law Review( monthly),and more recently the University of Illinoishas published the Illinois Law Bulletin(quarterly), both principally devoted toIllinois law. The two existing law journàlsare to be consolidateci and the law schoolsof Illinois, Northwestern, and Chicago areto unite in publishing a legai periodical tobe called Illinois Law Review (New Series),issued monthly from November to June, inclusive."The Review will be edited by the lawfaculties of Chicago, Illinois, and Northwestern, assisted in the manner common amongAmerican law school magazines by a number of student editors chosen from the senior law classes of each school. It will con-tain leading articles upon important legaitopics, comments upon current legislation ofgeneral interest, a monthly index of andnotes upon notable recent cases throughoutthe English-speaking world, reviews of newlaw books, and criticai discussions of proposed legai reforms. It will give, as haveits predecessors, an intensive review of thelaw of Illinois, and will continue the IllinoisAppellate Court digest. It will also publishthe more important items of news about theediting schools. The subscription price willbe $3.00 a year."John A. Logan, '21Investment SecuritieswithH. M. BYLLESBY & COMPANY23 1 So.

Sv ìft, founderof Swift & Company.For his heifer l'Stave" Swift paid cash. To this dajSwift & Company stili pays cash for the animals itbuys. Throughout the year, at convenient places, thefarmer is furnished a Constant cash market.Thus a business prlnciple.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 wlde 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 intosomething of commercial value.Under the conditions formerly prevailing G. F. Swiftearneda ten doli arprofiton his investment of eighteendollars. Contrast this, if you will, with Swift & Company 's average profit of only a fraction 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 Maxine Davis, ex '22, to Frank E.
