XVII APRIL, 1925 No. 6AS this number of the Magazine goesto press reports clearly indicate thatexcellent progress is being made in theAlumni Campaign which wasCampaign successfully inaugurated onProgress March 24th. When the Campaign opened, about one-fourthof the quota of $2,000,000, which theAlumni adopted, was subscribed. This wasa most encouraging start. Within the fewdays that have since elapsed about one-halfof the quota has been obtained. A numberof the districts quickly subscribed or over-subscribed their quotas, while others soonindicated that their quotas would be metwithin a few weeks. Most of the districts,however, are not yet fully organized downto that last detail which gives most effec-tive and complete results. They are alirapidly getting under headway to this end,though, and before many days the reportswill show gratifying results.There is stili much to be done, however,for no campaign of sudi magnitude, cover-ing nation-wide territory, can be completedin a day. What is needed at this time, inevery district, is more workers, and volun-teers are coming in constantly. If you havenot yet volunteered, get in touch with yourdistrict or locai chairmen; they will be giacito have any assistance you can render. Weface a great opportunity — we can and wemust win. Let us ali strive together forChicago !The booklet sent out to the Alumni sev-eral weeks ago, just before the campaignopened, entitled "The University of Chicago: Its Future," effectively sumsThe UP the cause of the University asFuture presented to the Alumni. It is fit-tingly dedicated "to the sons anddaughters of the University of Chicago,those children of a proud Alma Mater, to whom she presents her problems with con-fident hope." That the needs of the University are great, if it is to meet its respon-sibilities and opportunities even partially,not to mention the maintenance of a lead-ing position long held among the foremosteducational institutions, must now be clearto ali. It must also be clear that upon theAlumni now rests in great part the successof the University's effort to hold its highposition and to make a necessary advance.Above ali else the required endowmentfund of $6,000,000 must be obtained at thistime, and the University rightfully looks toits Alumni everywhere to contribute theirfair part so as to assure the needed endowment. Until recently, in seeking fundsfrom Chicago and other citizens, the University could well say that there were but fewAlumni ; that the Alumni were compara-tively young and not, in the mass, of largemeans ; that unlike many older institutionsit did not have a large and influential bodyof graduates and former students to whomit could justly look for some direct assistance. But those days have passed. OurAlumni are now large in numbers, many areexceptionally successful, and the generalsuccess of the mass of our Alumni is atleast average, if not in many ways abovethe average. In view of what Alumni ofother universities and colleges have done,therefore, it would be strange indeed if,under similar circumstances, our Alumnidid not respond to an urgent appeal fromAlma Mater. And certainly the citizens ofChicago and the Middle West can scarcelybe expected or asked to support the University if the Alumni, its more direct benefi-ciaries, do not do so willingly, loyally andpromptly. Thus our Alumni contributions,our Alumni loyalty and support assume animportance far above the amount actually:;25226 The University of Chicago Magazinesought from them. With concrete evidencethat the Alumni have done what mightfairly be expected of them, the Universitycan look to Chicago and other citizens forassistance with strengthened assurance andconfidence.But the appeal to the Alumni is stilibroader. As President Burton has sub-mitted it, in the conclusion of the booklet :"Some would have us put it on a mone-tary basis. They have calculated the costof what the University has given, set downwhat has been received, and found a debitbalance."But her real appeal to her sons anddaughters must rest upon other than a mon-etary basis. She must come to them withan invitation to share in the toil, the sacri-fice, and the glory of a great task. 'Freelyye have received, freely give' must be hermessage. 'The real service that the University has done you is not financial ; it isnot primarily for profit or any practicalend, but spiritual. If it has enlarged yourhorizon, illuminated and enriched yourminds, made the life of the spirit accessibleto you, you will covet these gifts for others.Nor will you be content unless you havedone your part to make them accessible forthe future.' "'# # *The many helpful activities of our Alumni in the past, the great Alumni campaignnow under way, the Alumni aims and plansfor the future, ali constantly in-Faculty volving time, energy and financialLoyalty sacrifices are sufficient evidence ofthe loyalty of our Alumni. Butthere is a loyalty of another group of Chi-cagoans — the Faculty — to which we desireto cali special attention at this time.There is certainly no educational institu-tion whose faculty are more loyal to it thanare the members of our Faculty to Chicago.It would probably come as a surprise tomany Alumni and citizens to know of someof the direct sacrifices many of our Facultyhave made in various ways to assist theUniversity. Professor F. R. Moulton ofthe Department of Astronomy, for example,has worked for over 13 years at half pay sothat there would be sufficient funds availableto enable his department to have anotherprofessor on the staff. Certainly Moultonfully deserves a building!There is a long list of professors whohave done likewise or who, although in-vited to other institutions at increased sal-ary, have remained at Chicago — becausethey were sincerely attached to it, becausethey believed in its aims, and because theywere willing to do what they could to help it maintain its high position. Many of theFaculty have worked under difficulties andhampering, often discouraging conditions foryears; many have paid for books and lab-oratory equipment out of their own pocket,time and again, that should have been fur-nished by the University. In this and manyother ways, our Faculty have truly estab-lished a unique record of self-sacrifice andloyalty.But certainly this condition should notbe expected to continue forever. And,frankly, the time is now at hand whennewer members can not be engaged or re-tained under such circumstances. Becausethe loyalty of our Faculty should no longerbe burdened or imposed upon, either directlyor indirectly, and because the Universitycan not get or hold the new men she shouldhave under such a situation, the need ofthe $6,000,000 endowment fund is imperative. Its success is not in any way "re-warding" our Faculty members; it willsimply give them a chance, at last, to"break even," and to do even greater thingsthan they have already accomplished. Wefeel sure that our Alumni join us in thistoast : "To our Faculty — brilliant minds,loyal hearts, great men !"* * *One of the most significant reunions inali of our Alumni history will take place thiscoming June. While various events, asusuai, will be held during ReunionJune_ Week, the whole program willReunion again reach its climax on the lastday — Alumni Day. Alumni Day,this year, comes on Saturday, June 13.Many special events are being planned forthat day, and some important changes inour customary arrangement of the reunionprogram will be inaugurated. Details onthe Reunion will appear in our May number and in the customary announcementsmailed to Alumni everywhere. However,we urge you to mark the date on your cal-endar now — and prepare to attend. Raymond J. ("Pete") Daly, '12, is ReunionChairman this ycar, which is simply another way of saying that the Reunion willbe a great success.The whole spirit of this "New Era" gath-ering, however, will be in the nature of atribute to President Burton and the University on the inspiring aims put forth, and itwill also be a gathering of Alumni fromevery secton of the country in celebrationof the great Alumni endeavor that markedthis historical 1925 year. In that spirit letus ali gather, and in that spirit"Our loyal voices let us raiseAnd bless her with our benizons."Dr. Thomas Wakefield Goodspeed, '62My Fellow Alumni:THE University has come to us with this challenge : "Will you win forus the first great objective?" The Alumni of the city and of thecountry, the Alumni ali over the world, have risen up and said : "We willaccept the challenge, and we will do this great thing that is requestedof us!"We are confronted with a great privilege and a great opportunity. Wesay to President Burton that we do not propose to take up this work as atask, as a hard duty which has got to be done. We place it higher than thedoing of any difficult task simply, or the doing of something that we feelunder obligation to do. We welcome it as a privilege and an opportunity,one of the most splendid that any of us will ever encounter in this life.I doubt if among ali the opportunities of life we shall ever have anotherone as great as this, for so great an institution or for so great a cause. Wewelcome the opportunity to do this great piece of work for the institutionwhich we love.Thomas W. Goodspeed, '62.THE ALUMNI CAMPAIGN4Trustee Robert L. ScottMr. Robert L. Scott, a Trustee meinber of theCommittee on Development, has been doing excellentwork in furthering the campaign on behalf of theUniversity. Recently he presided at a dinner forNorth Shore Alumni at which a large sum was pledgedby those in attendance.Great Chicago Meetings Start DriveOn Tuesday, March 24, more ChicagoAlumni gatherings than were ever held sim-ultaneously before started the Alumni Campaign. Ali over the country, in every sec-tion, Chicago Alumni gathered, and withtremendous enthusiasm, accompanied by aflood of subscriptions, gaie the Campaign amost auspicious start. The Campaign Extra "covers" these splendid gatherings; somereports, as they reached the Alumni Office,also appear in this number of the magazine.Truly, it was a great start everywhere!The Chicago MeetingAt Chicago the campaign went into action with a giant dinner on March 24, hcldat the new Furniture Mart. Some 1200Alumni gathered bere, taxing the immensedining rooms to their capacity, and cheer-ing the opening of the efforts on behalf ofthe University. John P. Mentzer, '98, chair-man of (he Chicago District, presided,Harold H. Swift, '07, chairman of theBoard of Trustces, paid a splendid tribute toPresident Burton and to his expiring aimsand leadership, and urged the Alumni tocooperate with the Board of Trustees in giving every possible assistance to the President.President Burton, in an address that wassent over the radio to Alumni in ali parts ofthe country, told again of the pressingneeds of the University, of the necessity ofthe support of the Alumni in this emer-gency, and of his faith that their supportwould now be given.At the conclusion of the Presidente address, Earl D. Hostetter, '07, J.D. '09, pre-sented him with a beautiful bouquet of roses,as a simple tribute from the Alumni Council.Then "Old Man" Stagg gave an inspiringaddress, calling upon the Alumni to "getinto the game," as the}-* have always expected the Chicago teams to play, and tomake every effort to win for Chicago. Arthur E Bestor, '01, President of the Chau-tauqua Institute, who had come from NewYork to attend this meeting, spoke on theearlier days at the University, told of theuplifting influences of the University on itsmany generations of students, and pledgedthe support of the Alumni in the Campaign.Ali of the speakers were cheered again.Then carne the "greatest football game in¦ history," conducted by Herbert P. Zimmer-mann, '01, and "Johnny" Mentzer. A largegridiron was exhibited; the ball was placedat one end-line, and it was advanced on~ thefield at the rate of $1000 a yard, requiring$100,000 to make a "touchdown." As thesubscriptions carne in from ali parts of thehall the ball steadily advanced to severaltouchdowns and the names of the subscrib-ing players were called as the "game" pro-gressed. When the game ended it wasfound that Chicago Alumni had subscribed,as a start for the campaign, well over halfa million dollars, about half of the quotafor the Chicago district. Trustee JuliusRosenwald's stirring gift of one million dollars was announced, amidst a roar ofcheers. Ali throughout the UniversityBand played Chicago songs, and "Bill" Mac-Cracken, '09, J. D. '12, was cheer-leader.Telegrams from many sections of thecountry were read, telling of subscribingand frequenti}' over-subscribing their quotas.Without question this was the most inspirine Alumni gathering ever held. It wasa reunion in itself, a "football enthused"crowd — a wonderful exhibition of loyalty tothe University. The campaign, indeed, hashad a great start. Let us ali strive togive it zr. :r:--..r . . * '228The Alumni Campaign 229SOME CAMPAIGN STATISTICSBy the time the Magazine reaches you, almost twoweeks will have passed since these figures were com-piled.

Among the papers whichcarried editorials on the pamphlet were:Boston Herald, Boston Transcript, Springfield Republican, New York Times (2), NewYork Herald-Tribune, New York Sun, NewYork Telegram-Mail, Chicago Evening Post,Chicago Daily News (2), Chicago Journal Trustee Julius RosenwaldMr. Julius Rosenwald, Trustee, donor of RosenwaldHall and other gifts to the University, has given themovement for the "New Epoch" inspiring assistanceby a gift of one million dollars. In addition to hismany generous gifts, his work as a Trustee and asa member of the Committee on Development is con-stantly of great help.By an error in proofing, the picture in the Marchnumber, named as Mr. Rosenwald, is of Trustee EliB. Felsenthal, '78. Mr. Felsenthal is also lendingaid to the campaign.* * *of Commerce, Chicago Journal, DenverNews (2), Harvard Alumni Bulletin. Ex-cerpts from the editorial of the ChicagoEvening Post appear in this issue.The Chicago Herald-Examiner conducteda contest awarding a prize to the persotiwho could select a better list than Dr. Eliot,of the most distinguished educators of alitime. It is estimated that the pamphlet received some 300 columns of publicity as newsand about 50 as editorials.President Burton Heard Over Radio byPeoria Alumni ClubUpon Tuesday evening, the 24th of March,the Peoria University of Chicago Club metat the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Morganto "listen in" upon the speech delivered byDr. Burton. Those present were most inter-ested and were thrilled by the thought thatali over this broad land others were turningtheir thoughts toward the University at thesame time.Our District Chairman is most enthusias-tic, and reports that he is making excellentprogress upon the quota.With best of good wishes to Chicago,Anna Jewett Le Fevre,1 Secretary.23o The University of Chicago MagazineEva Margaret Jessup, '07Miss Eva Tessup, '07, has been cne of our mostactive Alumnae workers for a number of years.

Our own future as a University and thepersonal future of every one of us belongsto the future of the University. The presentvalue set upon our degree may not be inimmediate danger of depreciation, but thatis a possibility unless the campaign is sup-ported heartily. The plans of ProfessorManly for development of new fields ofwork promise that the graduate instructionof the Department of English will be un-rivaled by any other American university.Such projections of a national character asthe plans for the dialect dictionary and forthe dictionary of American English are evenmore far-reaching. Perhaps as useful to thenation also will be the stronger organizationof work for the Master's degree in respectto training in methods of teaching.We believe that the record of the Department justifies a proper pride in every personholding either the Master's or Doctor's degree from the Department of English, andwe confidently expect that the interest sbownby such graduates will back up our opinion.David H.

Heretofore, whenever I have hadoccasion to return to the Campus since grad-uation, I have felt like an outsider — one whohad once shared in my Alma Mater's lovingguidance, but now — long since forgotten tomake way for her ever-increasing family.But Saturday — she called me, and I carne —just as if returning home, after years andyears of wandering. And I found that I wasstili a part of her family, and stili loved, butso grown up, that I might help share bur-dens, in the rearing of both her present andfuture children.How much financial assistance we in Elginwill be able to furnish "our good Mother"we do not know, but I for one will do myhest to make our friends out here feel thatthey have a rare privilege in furthering ourAlma Mater's splendid work.Yours sincerely,Jessie I.

Chairman.The Alumni Campaign ? 231MEN(Excerpts from Editorial in The Chicago Evening Poston the Recent Pamphlet "Men")Under this simple caption the Universityof Chicago issues a pamphlet which bids uspause to think. In its opening sentences itrecalls the saying of President Garfield, ut-tered in an address to the alumni of Williams College, that "a university is MarkHopkins at one end of a log and a studentat the other."It is a saying of which we need to be re-minded for the sake of its striking emphasisupon the essential element in any institutionof learning. Given the intellect and char-acter and genius for teaching of a MarkHopkins and one receptive student mind andyou have the vital gemi of a university.When we have transformed the log, whichGarfield wittily imagined, or the porch inwhich the Stoics taught, into a group ofsplendid buildings, with commodious class-rooms, laboratories and libraries, we havemerely provided enlarged and improved fa-cilities, none of which are worth anythingunless some Mark Hopkins and his studentbe there to give them value.In other words the ultimate measure of auniversity is in terms of men — the men whoteach, and the men who are produced as aresult of the teaching. Chicago Universityis' now seeking from its city the means toexpand its physical equipment. It is asking$11,500,000 for new buildings. But it facesthe ultimate measure by which its right tomake such request may be judged. Itfrankly declares that justification for a program so ambitious can be based only uponproof that it possesses within its walls thehuman values, developed and potential,which are worthy such recognition.And proof is not difficult to furnish. President Harper saw the fundamental truth inthe Garfieldian epigram, and had the cour-Bringing in SubscriptionsWayland W. Magee, '05, Campaign Chairman forNebraska. This looks like a load on his farm, butit's the way Nebraska subscriptions are brought in. At the Campaign Chairmen ConferenceWilliam C. ("Bill") Gorgas, '19, from New York,greets Evon Z. ("Skeeter") Vogt, '06, from NewMexico. Here's where East and West did meet.age to act upon it when he selected the firstfaculty for the new university. The aca-demic world gasped as he set a salary of$7,000 for the heads of the principal depart-ments. It was breaking ali precedents. ButPresident Harper was thinking of a university in terms of men. Mediocrity couldmake of little or no value the finest equipment ever constructed at a cost of millions.Genius could give worth to it which wasbeyond ali dollar estimates.Chicago cannot afford to let this traditionfail. The world has been served because thevision of human valués has held first placein this great institution. The great American middle-west has kept abreast of theolder east with its earlier start because theemphasis has been put upon man.And the student end of the log has beenoccupied no less worthily than the teacherend. The record of achievement for thosewho have gone out from the University justi-fies to the full the fine idealism of Harperand his successors, Judson and Burton.It is thus that the University of Chicagojustifies its plea for $11,500,000 to erect andequip new buildings. But it does not restthere. It asks an additional $6,000,000 to en-dow instruction and research, in order thatit may continue to gather to itself the high-est type of intellectual leadership; men whowill think for America and for the world,and who tomorrow, as today, will make itschief distinction — Men.ALUMNINew Orleans Alumni Club Organized4312 South Tonti Street,New Orleans, Louisiana,March 7, 1925.Add another University of Chicago Alumni Club to the roster, this time from theSunny South, a spot deepest down in Dixie,where in spite of a climate that grows every-thing else, few University of Chicago Clubshave grown.But this is ali changed. On February 7that a dinner given at the St. Charles Hotel inhonor of a visit from Professor Lyman, theUniversity of Chicago Alumni Club of NewOrleans was formally launched. And a sturdybark it promises to be, a worthy sister of theother good clubs around the country, whichit shall always strive to emulate.Credit for the arduous preliminary work ofgetting the "old grads" together is due en-tirely to Mr. Peter F. Dumi, '07 (a classmateand very good friend of Mr. Pierrot) wholabored untiringly on the list of names fur-nished by the Alumni Secretary until he hadrun it up to almost three times its originaisize. So you see we have a fine start fora successful club.At the organization dinner we had thepleasure of listening to a splendid, inspiringtalk by Professor Lyman, who brought usthe message of the development campaignand what it means to the University. Healso had with him a motion picture film ofthe University and its activities which wasthoroughly enjoyed. Professor Lyman's per-sonality, his easy manner and the sincerityof his message could not help but impress usvery deeply and we were ali glad of theopportunity to meet such a representativemember of the faculty. With Professor Lyman was his charming wife, whom it was areal pleasure to meet and the little they per-mitted us to do for them during their shortstay in New Orleans was a source of consid-erable regret.After the social part of the evening, in-cluding of course the singing of most of theold songs, the club was organized with thefollowing officers: President, Peter F. Dumi,'07; First Vice-President, Herbert E. Buchanan, '03; Second Vice-President, Mrs.Walter Stern, '10; Secretary, Mrs. ErnaSchneider, '16; Treasurer, Eleazer R. Bowie,'10. The first Board of Directors is com-posed of Waldo E. Emerson, '17, IrvingHardesty, '19, Philip Rousevelle, ex. '18, andCornelius S. Crawford, '03.Sincerely,Mrs. Erna Schneider, '16, Secretary.

Coulter, '99, urged upon thealumnae not only the fullest support of theclub's work in the way of scholarship funds,University Settlement, Chicago CollegiateBureau of Occupants, co-operative dormi-tory and the social program for high schoolteachers and students — but equally importane a 100 per cent participation in thealumni share of the general ' endowrnentfund campaign. "Let each one of us be acommittee of one to put over the drive,"she said, "and go after something, large orsmall, but something from every formerstudent."The new officers unanimously elected atthe meeting: Miss Grace A. Coulter, president; Mrs. Horace B. Horton (Phyllis Fay)secretary; Miss Marion Ruth Stein, Delegateto the Alumni Council. The hold-over officers are: Mrs. Arthur A. Baer (AliceHogge), vice-president; Miss Charity Bud-inger, treasurer; Miss Eleanor J. Atkins,delegate to the Alumni Council.Acting upon the recommendation of MissRuth Hostetler, retiring membership chairman, the club voted to invite high schooljuniors instead of seniors to the annual "highschool teas" each spring and to includeprivate school students in the list. Seniors,it was pointed out, have already pretty welldefined plans; Juniors may be interested inthe University idea more easily. This mo-tion had the full support of the one hundredor more high school teachers in the clubmembership. In the year now closing, be-tween 2500 and 3000 seniors were entertainedat the teas.The report on the Drexel House co-operative dormitory was so favorable that theclub voted to appoint a committee to takeup with the University authorities the ad-visability of starting another such co-operative dormitory, in the furnishings of whichthe Alumnae Club would assist as it did inestablishing Drexel House, now wellequipped and self supporting.The regular pledge to the work of theUniversity of Chicago Settlement was re-newed, and the customary appropriation tothe support of the Chicago Collegiate Bur eau of Occupations was somewhat increasedin view of the large number of applicationsreceived by the Bureau from University ofChicago girls.The four-quarter scholarship which the"club maintains was again endorsed, with therecommendation that the appointmentshould be made by the University authorities with the approvai of the club. Thetext-book rent library established and main-tained by the club is also doing well andwill be continued. This Library, which hasquarters in the Classics Building, loansbooks to students for a fee of twenty-fivecents a quarter.The Club also went on record in supportof the Chicago College Club, voting to raise$2,000 by individuai subscription, to furnishthe handsome Adam Period private diningroom in the new College Club clubhousewhich is the social center for ali collegewomen in the city. The furnishings willinclude special furniture, linen, Silver andchina and the room will be known as aUniversity of Chicago room.After the business meeting, Mr. HaroldH. Swift, president of the Board of Trus-tees, outlined the history of the University 'sfinances and the reason for its present needof funds and called on the alumnae mostconvincingly to give their fullest co-opera-tion to the present financial campaign.Grace C.

O'Hara, '15,Director of Undergraduate Activities and Assistant Professor ofEnglishWHEN Dean Wilkins announced a pianof "humanizing the colleges," thealumni were pretty well agreed that it was agood idea. That was a year ago. Anotheryear is beginning on the campus, and manyof the recommendations of the dean and hisBetter-Yet committees have been realized.The idea has become a fact. Freshmen havearrived a week in advance of regular classes,have been welcomed by the President of theUniversity and the deans, have met the re-quirements of registration and of physicalexaminations, English examinations and psy-chological tests, and so have entered theirfirst classes well oriented and without theconfusion that heretofore has seemed to bethe freshman's inevitable heritage. Nor havethe demands of "rushing" interfered. A newrushing system both for fraternities andclubs has been instituted. Altogether, thefreshman is starting his four-year careerwith a definite assurance that the Universityhas a human as well as an officiai interestin him.But obviously such an interest can notstop where it starts. That the Universityhopes to continue this interest in a spiritof helpful co-operation is made evident by ZXJC OìXZ 3itC jthe creation of a new position, that of Director of Undergraduate Activities, and the ap-pointment to this position of Frank HurbertO'Hara, an alumnus who has distinguishedhimself in the fields of the two major activities which he is to direct, publications andproductions.The University has never underestimatedthe value of student activities. They are avital part of education. They not only sup-ply a social need, but are fields of practicaltraining. The organizations devoted to non-athletic activities have grown steadily in sizeand scope until they now embrace a sur-prising number of undergraduates. "Theseorganizations," Dean Wilkins has said, "con-stitute at the same time a great educationalopportunity and a great educational danger.Experience gained by membership andofficership forms habits in the character ofsocial relations, in the performance of socialresponsibilities, and in social and financialorganization and management which arelikely to persist through life. The goodnessor badness of these life-habits depends uponthe goodness or badness of the conduct ofthe organizations. Furthermore, the specificinterests of the organizations are in manycases such (as in the case of the dramaticand musical clubs), that their cultivation incollege tends to make them a permanentsource of pleasure in later life. On theother hand, students now tend to devote tothese organizations and activities an altogether disproportionate amount of time andenergy. It is quite clear that these organizations and activities are of themselves ofan extent and an importance comparable tothose of the athletic activities, and that theyare just as much entitled to and in need ofsupervision as are the athletic activities."It is with an appreciation of these valuesand needs that the new position has beenestablished. The Director of Activities willsupervise the administration of the organizations, the eligibility of members and officers,the social and financial activities of the latterwith the assistance of a student auditor, andthe general affairs of the organizations. Inbrief, he will give such constructive adviceas he may be able to give, and solve suchdifficulties as may arise. The supervisionwill take the form of guidance, and willendeavor to encourage initiative and spon-taneity, and to transmit from year to yearthe experience gained by the students ofprevious staffs. The publications to besuperv' ' ' ¦' ' ™ ^ " ™2 3'6Director of Undergraduate Activities 23 7Circle, a literary monthly magazine; ThePhoenix, a humorous monthly magazine;The Forge, a monthly magazine of poetry;and The Cap and Gown, the student annualbook. The dramatic organizations or activities are the Dramatic Association and Gar-goyles; the Tower Players; the W. A. A.Portfolio; Settlement Night; Y. W. C. A.Freshman Frolic; and the Senior Vaudeville.No modification is planned in the status ofthe Blackfriars, already efficiently organized.The advantages of such a position as thatof Director of Activities having been recog-nized, it remained for the University to findthe man for the place. Alumni will be grati-fied to know that he was found among theirown number. Frank O'Hara, of the class of1915, is himself a graduate of undergraduateactivities. From his freshman year he wasprominently identified with numerous activities. He made his first Mandel Hall appear-ance in a Dramatic Club production duringhis second quarter. In the spring quarter heplayed a leading part in Blackfriars. Fromthen he was continuously giving his energiesto the Dramatic Club, in some of whose pro-ductions he acted, but in more of which hisinterest showed only in the finish of theperformances and the increasing prestige ofthe organization. He became president ofthe club in his Junior year, and inauguratedthe pian of producing in the spring quarteronly originai plays by campus playwrights.His own little one-act play is stili mentionedfor the realistic simplicity of its atmosphereand setting.It was at about this time, also, that he wasone of the founders, and an editor, of TheLiterary Monthly, a forerunner of the magazine now known as The Circle. He waselected speaker for the associates, and wasappointed Head Marshal. He was a memberof various organizations, among them thePen Club, the Fencibles, Skull and Crescent,Owl and Serpent, and Phi Gamma Delta.Yet ali the time, O'Hara was editing amagazine — professionally — and writing dramatic criticism and short stories. In fact, hehad begun writing for newspapers in boy-hood, and has served as reporter, dramaticeditor and special writer for metropolitannewspapers and magazines. "Activitiesdon't take too m,uch time," the undergraduate who is now the director of undergraduate activities used to say, "if you conserveyour time."Apparently he acted upon this theorywhen, in his senior year, he accepted ap-pointment to the faculty of the UniversityHigh School, where he gave a drama courseand directed the high school plays. Hisreputation for careful and meritorious pro-ductions is remembered. When, this spring, more than three hundred University studentssigned a petition asking that a director ofproductions be appointed, one of the Better-Yet committees named Mr. O'Hara as itsrecommendation. It was in part due to thispetition, but with a larger perspective thatthe new position was created.The year following graduation, O'Harawas teaching at the University as well as thehigh school, and taking graduate courses inEnglish. His short stories were beginningto appear in the leading popular magazines.He was attached to the Presidente office forthe Quarter-Centennial celebration, whichincluded a pageant and the presentation ofold English plays; was on the committeethat selected unit scenery for Mandel Hall;and was in charge of the modera equippingof the theatre in Emmons Blaine Hall. InJanuary, 1917, he was granted a leave ofabsence to go to Los Angeles, where he hadbeen called to be associate director in thefilming of a feature motion-picture. In Oc-tober of that year he joined the faculty of theUniversity of Illinois, where he continueduntil September, 1924, resigning his positionof Assistant Professor of English to accepthis present position. Mr. O'Hara has beenan extension lecturer for Indiana University,and has outlined programs of dramatic activities for the Gary public schools. He re-turns to The University of Chicago as Assistant F'rofessor of English as well as Director of Activities. Relating the teaching tothe activities under his supervision, he offerscourses in playwriting and in writing forpublication.The appointment of a Director of Undergraduate Activities is an innovation in American universities, and President Burton andDean Wilkins were naturally interested insecuring for the place an alumnus who hadhimself beentrained not only professionallybut through prominent participation incampus activities while an undergraduate.Alumni will be interested in watching thedevelopment of this innovation.# * #"Cleans Slate for New Alumni Effort"Cleveland, Ohio,1375 Euclid Ave.,March 16, 1925.I am enclosing herewith my check forTwenty Dollars in payment of ray two finalinstallments on my subscription to theAlumni Fund.

'97,Librarian of the Main Library.NEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESBLACKFRIARS, as usuai, is attractingconsiderable attention as the springquarter approaches. Perhaps the interestof everyone on the campus is stimulated toa higher degree this year than previously,because of the delay in announcing the win-ning play. "Kaiti from Haiti," by JackOppenheim, '25, Russell Pierce, '24, and Lesile River, '25, is the title of the 1925 Black-friar show, selected by Hamilton Colemanwho, because of his long association withthe production and direction of the drama,needs no introduction.This play was chosen by Mr. Colemanfrom six of the better ones submitted tothe judges, a faculty committee, consistingof Professors James Weber Linn, PercyBoynton, and George Sherburn.The show will be produced on May 15,16, 22, 23, and, because of the increasingpopularity of dramatics on the campus, it isbelieved that the attendance to these per-formances will establish a new record. Theplot concerns the vagaries of a professor ofanthropology, his dusky servant, Gullah, hisdaughter, niece, potential son-in-law, andprospective nephew. Mystery and legendare bound up in the proceedings ali of whichtake place on the campus.A departure in social activities at the University will take the form of a MilitaryBall, the first of a series of annual affàirs,which is to be held at the South ShoreCountry Club, Friday, Aprii 17th. CadetMajor Owen Albert and Lucy Lamon areto lead the right wing of the ball, and CadetLieut. Hugh Wilson and Ellen McCrackenare to lead the left wing.It is expected that such important figures as Vice President Charles G. Dawes,General Hale, Commander of the 6th CorpsArea, General Harris, President of the Armyand Navy Club, and Admiral Moffatt, Commander at the Great Lakes, and MayorDever will be among the guests. Severalof the commanding cadet officers at the"Big Ten" schools have already acceptedinvitations.Major Barrows, who is sponsoring the affair, believes that an annual military ball ofthis character will place the formai militaryaffairs of the University on a piane withthose which have been enjoyed for sometime by other of the "Big Ten" schools. Through the Board of Women's Organizations, the Y. W. C. A., Women's Athletic Association, and Federation haveplanned to merge in such a way as to eliminate the overlapping of activities of theorganizations in any particular field. Manyof the traditional activities of one organization will be shifted to another because ofthe appropriateness of the work to that or-ganization's purposes and aims. For in-stance, the "Upper Class Counselor" place,which has been the particular work of the"Y. W," will be turned over to, and amal-gamated with Federation's "QuestionaireSystem" for freshmen and entering women.It is hoped that this "merger idea" will in-crease the efficiency of the separate organizations and eliminate much unnecessaryoverlapping of activities in certain fields.As was previously announced, the GleeClub has been reorganized and now boastsof forty or fifty well trained men. The newofficers are: President, Ralph Larson; Secretary, Morton Barnard; Coach, Harris Vail.On February 23rd, the Club represented theUniversity in the Inter-Collegiate Glee ClubContest at Orchestra Hall, in which clubsfrom fourteen Middle-Western universitiescompeted.

It has been al-most impossible to play the sanie team inconsecutive games. This had a marked ef-fect upon the team-work of the five, anddespite this fact the cagemen gave a goodaccount of themselves and were nosed-outin several instances by a small number ofcounters. With the recovery from injuryof some of the veterans, and the presentprospects of the Freshman squad, CoachNorgren is looking forward to a title-win-ning quintette in 1926.The warm spring weather, during thevacation between quarters, afforded thebaseball squad an excellent opportunity toperform out-of-doors. Present indicationspoint toward a pennant-winning team thisyear, with a possibility of a trip to Japan.Russell Cunningham, who was elected cap-tain of the 1925 team at the annual get-to-gether dinner held at Hutchinson Commons,and seven other veterans who played on lastyear's team, as well as a host of valuableSophomores who performed on the Freshman squad a year ago, will form the nucleusof the promising nine.Coach Norgren will have five twirlers,three from last year's team, and two Sophomores, both of whom are experiencedpitchers, to keep the other "Big Ten" teamsguessing. An array of experienced infieldersand outfielders are making strong bids forthe various berths on the squad, and. i^short, according to "Red" Cunningham,prospects are brighter than they have beenin a number of years.1925 ScheduleAprii —18 — Northwestern at Chicago.25 — Iowa at Iowa.28 — Indiana at Chicago.May —2 — Purdue at Chicago.6 — Illinois at Chicago.13 — Purdue at Purdue.16 — Iowa at Chicago.20 — Northwestern at Northwestern.23 — Wisconsin at Chicago.28 — Illinois at Illinois.June —1 — Indiana. at Indiana.6 — Wisconsin at Wisconsin.(Please turn to page 256) National Interscholastic Basketball ITournament I', ni ini » un u» mi "il mi un imi mi mi un— m< mi n*|*During the first week of the Spring quarter, March 30 to Aprii 4, forty-two teamsrepresenting high schools in thirty-threestates invaded the campus to compete inthe Seventh Annual National High SchoolBasketball Tournament. The fraternitiesthrew open their doors to the invaders and aweek of entertainment in the form of tours,dances, theater parties, and fraternity "rous-ers" engaged the unoccupied moments of thevisitors. The team from Tonopah, Nevada,"The Greatest Silver Mining Town in theWorld," attracted considerable attention withtheir "five-gallon" hats, as did the Louisville,Kentucky, team with their full-blooded bulldog mascot who took an active part in thecheering. During the Louisville-Elgin game,an Elgin High player attempting to guardone of the "Dixie" quintet wandered too nearthe side lines and the dog appropriated, inone bite, a goodly portion of the Illinoisplayer's anatomy. It is needless to say thatthis ultra-modern form of rooting was im-mediately ruled-out by the officials and thedog removed to a remote section of thegymnasium.The final game for the championship wasplayed by Wichita, Kansas, and El Reno,Oklahoma, on Saturday night. A record-breaking crowd witnessed the exhibition,which, because of the youth and lack of experience of the El Reno "cagers," assumedthe proportions of a rout in the favor ofWichita 27 to 6. The "Sooners" from Oklahoma pluckily strove to stem the overwhelm-ing attack of the husky plainsmen but weresoon aware of the futility of their efforts.The game was featured by the long shots ofthe Wichita five who displayed great skillin dropping the sphere through the hoop atvarious angles, and the dose guarding ofboth teams.Second place in the meet went to El Reno,victors over Wheeler, Mississippi, in theafternoon, 27 to 23. Westport High of Kansas City, Missouri, won third place by beat-ing Wheeler,. 25 to 21. The latter teamtook fourth place in the meet.Dixie High of St. George, Utah, were victors over Southeastern of Detroit, Michigan,21 to 18, in the final consolation game.239UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO ALUMNIA Bit About OurselvesIN the comparatively brief period of its ex-istence, the University of Chicago hasgraduated a body of. men and women whohave won distinction and leadership in agreat variety of life activities. In almost everyfield, business, commerce, education, litera-ture, the arts, the sciences, journalism, theprofessions of law and medicine, social sci-enee, and others, Alumni of the Universityhave won a success that has reflected wellupon their training at the University andupon their character and abilities.To begin listing names of leaders wouldresult, if an attempt at comprehensivenesswere made, in the compilation of a cata-logue. It is interesting to mention, however,that the first woman to be elected to theSupreme Court of a state, the State of Ohio,is an alumna of the Law School; the firstCzecho-Slovak ambassador to England isan alumnus of the University; the firstwoman to become an operator on the Chicago Board of Trade, now very successfulin handling foreign grain shipments, is analumna of the University; the first American Army Officer to go "over the top" — hewas killed in the action — was a Chicagoalumnus; the originator of the city charters,which are establishing a new form for successful city government in America, is analumnus of Chicago; and it was an alumnuswho laid the foundations for a modem public school system in the Philippine Islands.Alumni of the University of Chicago holdor have held such positions of high, specialdistinction as President of the RockefellerFoundation, the Premier of Canada, Vice-President of the Western Electric Company,Director of the Carnegie Institute of Eco-nomics, Vice-President of the great packinghouse of Swift & Company, President of theChautauqua, directors of nationally-knownvocational bureaus, charity bureaus, andother leading social agencies, president ofthe University of Colorado, of Drake University, University of California, Universityof Wyoming, and of other universies andcolleges. A large number of deans, depart-ment heads, school superintendents, andsimilar educational administrators are grad-uates of the University. Indeed, in the University itself most of the administrativeofficers and deans, including the Dean of theSchool of Education, William S. Gray, '13,Ph.D. '16, the Dean of the Ogden GraduateSchool of Science, Henry G. Gale, '96, Ph.D.'99, and the Dean of Rush Medicai School,Ernest E. Irons, '00, M.D. '03, Ph.D. '12,are Alumni. In the field of business, industry and bank-ing, there is a long list of presidents, vice-presidents, and cashiers of banks throughoutthe country, and of heads of a number ofleading investment houses. In business,commerce and industry, a considerable number of Alumni have themselves built up successful manufacturing, brokerage, advertising, commercial, and technical businessestablishments, while a much larger numberhave won topmost positions of trust andresponsibility in various fields of businessand allied enterprise.Many notable lawyers, physicians and sur-geons are Chicago graduates; there is acreditable list of judges, congressmen andothers in public life, both state and national;there are a number of nationally knownjournalists and Washington correspondents—one of whom has been honored with sev-eral terms as president of the famous Grid-iron Club; and other leaders in professionallife. National and foreign distinction, med-als, and special honors, as well as honoraryacademic degrees, have often been conferredon Chicago Alumni. In arts and letters,there is quite a number of novelists, — MaudeRadford Warren, '94, Ph.M. '96, for instance— dramatists, stage and screen actors — Milton Sills, '03, for example — literary anddramatic critics, columnists, humorists —Keith Preston, '05, Ph.D. '15, Stephen Lea-cock, Ph.D. '03, to mention a couple — essay-ists, poets, editors, general and specialwriters. The literary and general authorshipoutput of Chicago Alumni would make at^ruly imposing library.A number of prominent athletic coaches— for instance, Hugo Bezdeck, '08, at PennState — who carry on the spirit of highsportsmanship and manhood, as emphasizedat the University under Mr. Stagg's leadership, in various sections of the country areChicago Alumni; very many Alumni andAlumnae have gained social and culturalprominence as expressed through the presi-dencies of university, women's, literary, musical and other clubs.And then there is a great body of Alumni,men and women, who, stili too young tohave won special distinction, are carryingon the high tradition of service and effortand steadily forging ahead as citizens andcoming leaders in the various walks of life.No university has better reason than theUniversity of Chicago to be justly proud ofits "p"^"-* " ^o il,,™,;?&zuTHE LETTER BOXTells of "Pat" Henry in Egypt(This letter tells about Robert L. Henry, '02, J.D.'08, whose interesting comments on "Life at Oxford''appeared in our January number. A letter from JudgeHenry himself, on the Campaign, follows:)Tulsa, Oklahoma.I wonder if you heard of "Pat's" appoint-ment to the Mixed Court at Alexandria,Egypt. At any rate it ought to be of interest to the Alumni, so I am sending youherein the data about Pat in case you thinkit desirable material for the Magazine. Iam also enclosing F'at's picture although Ido this with great reluctance, for to me helooks more like a starving Armenian thana dispenser of justice on the banks of theNile, but the paraphernalia adds color andanyway everybody knows Pat was never aGibson beauty, and the Egyptian photog-rapher either tried to emphasize this or elsewas mad at the ruling race and tried to takeit out on Pat.About the only other information thatmight be of interest is that Pat was nominateli by President Coolidge and the ap-pointment was made by King Foud I. Alsoas you know, Pat was prominent in Collegeactivities and a two miler.Here's some information on the MixedCourt in case you want it. "There are 14nations besides Egypt represented, GreatBritain, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal,Greece, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Nor-way, Sweden, Russia, Switzerland, and theU. S. A. Of the 44 foreign judges, three areAmerican. The courts are the principal onesof Egypt and handle a vast commercialand admiralty business. They decide alicases between Egyptians and foreigners, be-tween foreigners of different nationalities,and ali real estate matters in which a for-eigner has an interest. The foreign coloniesof Greece, Italy, France and Great Britainare very large, run to several hundred thou-sand, and have most of the business in theirhands." Yours very sincerely,Winston P.

Let thepeople of our great city have some sharein it.I recently was back in America for twoweeks, after an absence of three years. Iwas appalled at the evidence of wealth. Itseems to me the plain citizens of Chicagocould give you your $17,500,000 without no-ticing the sacrifice. Why not get contribu-tions from a hundred thousand at least?Why not circularize the million names in thedirectory?If every newspaper joined in the campaignyou would have no difficulty. Recently theLondon Times has raised over £225,000 insmall subscriptions for the restoration of St.Paul's Cathedral. AH that was asked was£160,000. But weeks afterwards the contrib-utors continued.

In conferring thedegrees, special tributes were paid to thesetwo Chicago leaders.The tribute to Mr. Wacker said: "Citizen of distinction, who by his high ideals,broad views, and tenacity of purpose, hasmade an incalculable contribution to thecause of city planning in America; who al-ways has shown himself, when the occasionarose, ready to lay aside his private affairsand devote himself to the common good;and who more than any other man has iden-tified himself with that pian, the consum-mation of- which will make Chicago, by rea-son of the beauty of its parks, the dignityof its buildings, and the beauty of its streetsand boulevards, a city to delight the eye andinvite the soul."Of Mr. Stock it was said: "Conductorof the Chicago Symphony orchestra, pro-found student of the theory and practice ofmusic, composer of many originai workswhich have enriched the world of music,skillful in ali details pertaining to orchestra administration and organization, whoby the subtlety and beauty of his interpre-tations of the works of the great mastershas made the Chicago symphony orchestrathe Joy and pride of the city, and establishedits fame among the orchestras of the world."Degrees were given to 237 Universitycandidates, of whom forty-six received thedegree of doctor of medicine from RushMedicai College.* * *Dean Marion Talbot RetiresAnnouncement has been made of the re-tirement of Dean Marion Talbot at the endof this Spring Quarter.

One hundred thousand moremight be in circulation if there were spacefor them on the shelves.In Harper library alone there are over fivehundred thousand books prepared for circulation. There are four hundred thousandbooks in the stacks in the basement, fiftythousand in the east tower, and fifty thousand in other rooms in the library, includingthe reading room on the third floor. This isthe present capacity of the library. Theshelves cannot be packed tightly, as roommust be left for the addition of new books,says J. C. M. Hanson, associate director ofthe library.Plans for the extension of the library system have been submitted to the Board ofDirectors of the libraries. According to Mr.Hanson, expansion is necessary if University students are to receive full use of ali thebooks in the University. "In the near future," said Mr. Hanson, "there will probabljbe an extension of the library between thisbuilding and the Classics building. As soonas the new Theological building is com-pleted, which will probably be in October,the Divinity school books will be movedthere.

The peacethat has settled over the Dining Halls sincethen has been one of the most remarkablethings that has happened at Yale within recent memory. When college undergraduatesfind no need for earth-shattering epithets tohurl at their waiters and can cali items onthe bill of fare by names recognizable inmaturer and more polite society, the incred-ibfc has happened. For if there has beenany one topic that from the earliest yearsof the eighteenth century until the twentiethhas OerenDJàllv disturbed the college life it Dean Elizabeth Wallace (left) and DeanMrs. William Nott Flint (Edith Foster, '97)has been Commons. Yale was losing moneyin an officiai struggle to hold to old lines onthis traditional bugbear when along carne aclever woman from the University of Chicago and in no time at ali the two-century-old problem was solved. Today Commonsmore than satisfies the undergraduates, andit is paying its own way for the University.In the light of Harvard's decision to doseMemorial Hall in Cambridge because of theunwillingness of Harvard undergraduates topatronize it, the success of Miss Cora C.Colburn, Director of Commons at the University of Chicago, at the Yale Commons isinteresting. The old system was table d'hoteand on weekly charges; the choice of thefood and service lay with the superintendentand no choice of any sort lay with the board-ers, who had to accept the situation as bestthey could. Commons became a "mess hall,"where individuality was stamped out becauseof the system. In spite of the strenuousefforts of the University authorities to throwa glamour of social charm over this condi-tion, we had to sympathize with the undergraduates who protested against it. "Riots,"dissatisfaction to the students and worry andfinancial loss for the University brought inthe experimenf that has proved such a success.This was the opening of a Cafeteria forUpperclassmen in addition to the regularFreshman restaurant on a board basis. Forthe year ending last June an average of862 meals were served each day in theCafeteria, the average cost to the upperclassmen had become only forty-one cents a meal,while the student who was living most riot-(Please tura to page 255)ir— — iBE! 3EE 3 EIE 3QE 3QE 3QE 3 EIE 3EIE 3 EIELAW SCHOOLMitchell TowerThe Law School and the DevelopmentProgramABOUT the middle of March a pamphletentitled "The University of Chicago, ItsFuture," was sent out to ali the alumni, asa re-statement by President Burton of theaims of the Development Campaign, in itsapplication to ali the departments of theUniversity. That portion devoted to theLaw School is as follows:"The current development of legai education and research in this country seemsto point the way for the Law School duringthe next fifteen years. Heretofore theachievements of the better schools haveconsisted mainly in improving professionaleducation in uncovering the historicalsources of our law, and in creating a coni-petent body of law teachers. Today thereis a notable movement to make the lawschools the principal instruments in an intensive study of the law, designed to sim-plify and clarify it and to adapt it better tothe needs of modem society. The workalready done by groups of law-schoolteachers under the auspices of the newly-formed American Law Institute shows itapossibilities, and our Law School must beprepared to do its part in this enterprise.Adequately to participate in it, however,requires an amount of detailed investigationand research that can be given only bylegai scholars who have a substantial partof their time freed for this purpose fromthe burden of routine teaching, and whoare enabled to specialize in a small numberof related topics, directing and aided by thegraduate students who will be attracted tothis work once it is well under way. The 1EJUniversity of Chicago will require an en-largement of the Law Faculty, of the library,and of the facilities and inducements forgraduate work, if its Law School is to main-tain leadership."Of the $6,500,000.00 to be raised at oncefor increased endowrnent, $150,000.00 is des-ignated for the Law School.No provision for further buildings for theLaw School is mentioned in the list of thenew buildings now contemplated.The Illinois Law ReviewThe following letter was recently mailedto ali the Law School Alumni:To the Members of the University of Chicago Law School Association:Here is an easy way to help the LawSchool.The Illinois Law Review is now publishedjointly by the law schools of the Universityof Chicago, Northwestern University and theUniversity of Illinois. Laird Bell and LeoF. Wormser are the representatives of ourLaw School on the Board of the Review.The new Review is a combination of theold Illinois Law Review published byNorthwestern University and the IllinoisLaw Quarterly published by the Universityof Illinois. Heretofore, the subscription listwas of no concern to the University of Chicago. The result is that the number of sub-scribers from our Law School does not ap-proach that of the other two schools and,while there is no criticism of this on the partof the other schools, it is obvious that weshould make an effort to bring our contri-bution at least up to the standards of theothers.It is the hope of Dean Hall and the othersinterested that, with the combined supportof the three schools, this magazine will bea worthy periodical and a credit to the institutions and the state. The synopses of theIllinois Appellate Court decisions are ofespecial value to Illinois practitioners. Weare confident that you will want not onlyto have a part in supporting the magazinebut to have it in your office for its intrinsicvalue.We count on your support.University of Chicago Law SchoolAssociation,By Roy D. Keehn, President,244RUSH MEDICAL COLLEGEClinical Clerkships at RushRUSH Medicai College of the Universityof Chicago has successfully adopted the"Clinical Clerkship" as a part of its curriculum. Through arrangements with the Pres-byterian Hospital one-fourth of the JuniorClass, numbering about thirty-four students,enter the hospital each quarter where theyassume the role of clinical clerks, this position giving them an opportunity to becomebetter acquainted with hospital regime, tocome into closer contact with the patientsand to observe the practical application ofmedicai knowledge. Verily to be doctors.This policy is but one of the many progressive changes in medicai instructionwhich are constantly being applied at Rush.Though not a new principle in medicai education, as practised now it is more compre-hensive than have been such policies heretofore. It is more than the mere wardwalk of past days and much more than theclinics of today. It is learning medicine byexperience, not didactic in any way.The program of the student is practicallythat of the intern at the hospital save thathe does not have to live there nor is hisas responsible a position. At the beginningof the quarter he enters the PresbyterianHospital on one of three services offered, insurgery, medicine, or gynecology and pedi-atrics. These services are rotating, allowingthe student one month on each. The studentremains in the hospital daily from nine tillfour during which time he takes histories,makes physical examinations and laboratorydiagnoses. A group of students is assignedto a staff doctor and for one month willbe constantly associated with him in his hospital work. Each will follow the patientsassigned to him as long as they remain inthe hospital, seeing them daily.When the patient enters the hospital hereceives the attention of the doctor, the intern and another doctor, the student. Thestudent takes the patient's history andchecks it with the intern's report; he alsomakes physical examination and laboratoryexamination, checking both with that previously made by the intern. As he becomesmore proficient he may take the history anddo the physical examination and laboratorydiagnosis first and then have his workchecked up by the intern. So we see thatthe student does everything that he woulddo if the patient were his own. Doing ali this under the supervision of the doctorgives him the advantage of both intelligentsupervision and direct application of his ownknowledge with the opportunity to see theresults. The only bit of experience whichhe misses is to perform duplicate operationsand prescribe duplicate doses.The student wears a white suit whichidentifies him as being connected with thehospital staff. He is under joint controlof both the hospital and the medicai schooland is responsible to both. The work, ifsatisfactory, gains him three majors credittoward graduation.Delay in the adoption of this pian has beendue to several factors, one of the mainones being the lack of flexibility of the curriculum. This has now been corrected, thestudent carrying one or two extra subjectswhile pursuing his hospital duties. It ishoped that later the student may be freedfrom ali other duties during his clerkship.The pian has been greeted with enthusi-asm by the students, the medicai college andthe hospital, for it affords the best teaching possible combined with individuai instruction and helps to make the hospital amore potent factor as an educational institution.* * *Operations Save Lives at SeaAn article which appeared recently in theChicago Tribune and other newspapers told oftwo major operations performed at sea byvolunteer surgeons which saved the lives oftwo persons. The two ships on which theoperations occurred, the Tuscania and theAraguaya, arrived at New York on March26th.Kellogg Speed, '01, M.D., '04, who has beenactive in Rush alumni affairs for some years,and who was captain of the Chicago footballteam in 1900, was one of the surgeons. Dr.Speed performed his difficult emergency op-eration on the Tuscania at night while theship was riding through rough seas fromSan Juan, Porto Rico, to Nassau. Dr. Speedwas Secretary of the Chicago SurgicalSociety in 1916, is a noted Chicago surgeon,and has written several books and articleson various phases of surgery. One volume.entitled "Fractures and Dislocations," ofabout 900 pages, ranks among the best inthat field.It is said that these two operations on thesea were, under the unusual circumstances,somewhat unique in the history of surgery.245&SSSSS««gSSSegSgSgSg3S8SSSSSSSSSSS3SSS3SS8SS33SS8gS«S3SgSSSS®)saA¦ YM™ . - iti ffttr : -*-Proposed School of Education Building, Kimbark Avenue SideAlumni Reunion and DinnerThe School of Education Alumni Association will have its annual reunion on Fri-day, May 8, in Ida Noyes Hall.

Bean, '17.IT has been my pleasure since graduationto continue my relations with the Schoolof Commerce and Administration in a verydirect way — a sort of post-graduate coursein business education. As Manager of theUniversity's Publication Department I havebeen gratified in having some share in thepublication of the very significant books,periodicals and pamphlet literature pro-duced by the faculty of the School of Commerce and Administration.Most of you are familiar with the ele-mentary textbooks which we "waded"through in undergraduate days either inmimeographed form, or more recently, inbook form. Readings in Industriai Society,Financial Organization of Society, Law andBusiness, and Principlcs of Accounting aresome of the earlier published texts producedby the members of the faculty, which haveinfluenced very widely the course of instruc-tion in colleges and graduate schools of business throughout the country.A number of you are perhaps not sofamiliar with the recent publications. Ishould like, therefore, to describe a fewof our new books, which are illustrative ofthe sort of thing now being done at theUniversity Press. I must teli you first of ananomalous creature which demurely startedits career as a handbook for freshmanstudents in schools of commerce and administration, and breaking ali bounds, insinuateditself into the attention of students of alikinds, in ali places.We have not yet recovered from ouramazement at the way How to Study, byA. W. Kornhauser, an instructor of psychol-ogy in the School of Commerce and Administration, has caught on. It is a small pamphlet of only forty-two pages in which Mr.Kornhauser has formulated quite simply andmodestly a group of rules for the improve-ment of study methods. He offered rules formemory and concentration which he foundto be psychologically sound, and a completeoutline of study technique — banishing dis-tractions, budgeting one's time, reading effec-tively, intensively and rapidly, taking notesand reviewing.He had at first little thought of going farafìeld from those freshmen in the Schoolof Commerce and Administration for whomthe manual was designed. A first impres-sion of less than 3,000 appeared in August,1924, and was exhausted in less than twomonths. A somewhat larger impression was immediately printed, and disappeared in tendays. Larger and larger printings havefailed to meet the demand; we are about tobring out the fifth impression in as manymonths, and 14,500 copies have already beensold.Obviously, the pamphlet has reached awider audience than at first was intended.It was taken up by schools of agriculture,seminaries, high schools, normal schools, andhas even penetrated to the graded schools.Professors of English Literature saw itspossibilities for their students as quickly asdid those teaching commerce and administration. It was read in girls' schools,schools of mines, hospitals, sanitariums, con-vents, and fraternity houses. Six hundredand fifty copies are in use at the Universityof Chicago, and almost every large universityin the country has adopte.d it.We do not expect ali of our new booksto appeal to as varied an audience as How laStudy has unexpectedty reached. But we doexpect them to appeal to the business man aswell as to the student, for the publicationshave now changed in character from textbooks in elementare' fields of business in-struction to more advanced studies inmethods, or in detailed aspeets of businessproblems.Mr. McKinsey's Managcrial Accounting, forexample, strikes a new note in management.Writers on accounting have never addressedthemselves directly to the manager as hasMr. McKinsey. His basic idea is that alibusiness executives need a knowledge ofaccounting as an aid in administrative control. The accountant also needs to under-stand the manager's point of view, and Mr.McKinsey has had this in mind too in writing his text.In Our Banking System, Waldo F. Mitchellhas given us a supplement to the usuai bank-ing text, and a book of genuine significanceto those who have to do with actual bankmanagement. It is the first book in English to reconcile American heterodoxies withthe fundamental theories of banking and thediscussion is based largely upon reportswhich bankers have made of their own busi-nesses on such topics as bank failures andbanking operations during the businesscycle.Farmers' Mutual Firc Insurance in theUnited States is the work of a writer withmuch ..<-.¦ _213Commerce and Administration 249ance field— Victor N. Valgren. Mr. Valgrenhas demonstrated convincingly that it ispossible for farmers' mutuals in ali partsof the country to reduce greatly their rateof loss. This book offers constructive sugges-tions for a state law to govern organizationand operation of farmers' mutuals, for amodel system of records, and for organization and management plans. Mr. Valgrenhas virtually solved the problem of applyingthe best means for minimizing the burdenof fire loss among farmers.Economie activities are so closely con-nected with the physical background that aknowledge of economie geography is ofgreat service to the business man and to alistudents of the modem organization ofsociety. Wellington D. Jones and DerwentS. Whittlesey have given us a survey ofworld-economic geography, prepared partic-ularly for the student of business and for thegeneral student who would develop an ap-preciation of the modem world. Volume Icovers the several elements of the naturaienvironment — climate, naturai vegetation,land forms, soils, minerals — as they affecthuman life, and especially economie life.Volume II will treat of the major economieactivities as related to naturai environment.The new family wage system that is beingwidely discussed and applied in foreign landsis the subject of a study by Paul H. Douglas in Wages and the Family, and is an example ofwhat I mean when I speak of a general literature of business that will appeal to thepractical business man. Mr. Douglas appearsas champion of a basic wage plus the payment of an allowance for dependents. Un-like most advocates of the living-wagedoctrine, he argues that although industryshould pay a living wage, it should not, andprobably cannot hope to pay ali adult maleworkers enough to maintain a family of five.Mr. Douglas argues, then, that just as theneed is variable, so wages should be vari-ablè; and he proposes three features whichhe believes essential to any proper wagesystem: the payment of an adequate basicwage, the payment of allowances for dependents, and the creation of an equalizationfund to obviate discrimination againsthiring those with dependents. This book isparticularly concerned with working out thedetails of an adequate and just system inthe light of American conditions.Much more might be said by way of illustratici! concerning such books as Economicsof Overhead Costs, by J. Maurice Clark, orProfessor Viner's Dumping, A Problem inInternational Trade, but I have, I think, givensufficient examples of recent publicationsproduced by the Faculty of the School ofCommerce and Administration and issuedthrough the University Press to illustratewhat is being done.A Corner in the Reynolds Club LibraryNEWS OFTHE CLASSESAND ASSOCIATIONSClass Secretaries'93.

In the evening at Cleveland we had about fifty-five for dinner andabout ten more carne in later. Our meetingwas very enthusiastic. We got right downto brass tacks during the course of ourmeeting and talked very defìnitely about ourorganization and having three "C" men present at the dinner.
