XVII MAY, 1925 No. 7President BurtonandThe CampaignJUST as the Alumni Campaign began toswing into the most criticai stretch aboutthree weeks ago President Burton was sud-denly stricken with anillness which sent himt o the PresbyterianHospital in Chicago toundergo an operation.The operation, we are happy to report, wassuccessful and President Burton is on theroad to recovery. We are glad to state,too, that the illness, according .to the at-tending physicians, was not due to strainand overwork in the campaign but mighthave come upon him even if he had beenleading a life of quiet and ease during thelast year. It is probable, though, that hisintense labors in the campaign have hast-ened the trouble upon him. At a most criticai period in the campaign, however, and ata time when the President would have beenkeenly eager and willing to extend himselfto the limit for its success, he is suddenlyremoved from the field. It is expected thathe will return to his duties by next Fall,but for the present his inspiring direct leadership is Iost to us.Ali during his illness, despite the re-peated cautioning of his attendants, he hasinsisted upon knowing how the campaignis progressing, and he has followed itsprogress with almost unrelaxed interest. Ata Campaign Workers meeting in Chicagoon Aprii 29 the several hundred Alumni inattendance sent word to President Burtonthat they would carry on, and cheered himwith the promise that their efforts wouldnot cease until the campaign had been suc-cessfully concluded.Our leader has fallen, but with loyalty,courage and determination refuses to becarried from the field. He can not lead_ ashe was wont or as he desires — but in spirit he stili leads us. Under that leadership wemust not fail !The progress of the Campaign has beensatisfactory but much is yet to be done bythe workers everywhere to drive through tocomplete success. The response fromAlumni thus far has been more than suffi-cient to indicate that complete success iswithin reach. But the experience and his-tory of ali such endeavors prove that it doesnot come automatically ; only the continuedloyal efforts of ali workers in ali sectionsof the country at ali times will get the full-est results. No one, we urge, should re-main satisfied with merely making a sub-scription, however small or large theamount. Every subscriber should make ita point to reach one or more of his or herChicago friends to be sure that they, too,have done what they could. Thus, not onlythrough the special campaign workers butalso through an ever-widening chain of so-licitors ali Alumni will be reached directlyand given direct opportunity to support themovement. In this way the field will bethoroughly covered.Though President of the University forless that two years, Dr. Burton has won theadmiration and the love of the Alumni byhis great Program of Development and byhis self-sacrificing efforts in its behalf. Theone way now to express that admiration andlove is to bend every effort toward the earlyand successful completion of the Alumnipart of the Program. To this aim we shouldnow dedicate ourselves anew. We mustjustify the faith and confidence that Dr.Burton has in us. Let us ali strive togetherso that President Burton may soon receivethe happiest message we could send him :"President Burton, we have won for youand Chicago !""65The University of Chicago MagazineFor almost a century it has been thehappy custom of alumni of many univer-sities and colleges to return to their insti-„. . tutions at the June gradu-WelcomeHome! ations and hold alumnireunions in honor of AlmaMater. Certainly under the democraticconditions of higher education in Americano finer tradition could be observed thanthese enthusiastic and appreciative annualgatherings. For a quarter of a century ourAlumni have likewise gathered on theQuadrangles of their City Gray each Junein the sanie high spirit and for the sameworthy purpose.Reunion this year comes in the secondweek of June, culminating, as customary,in Alumni Day — Saturday, June 13th. Thegeneral Reunion Program for 1925 appearselsewhere in this number, and the usuaimailed announcements are being sent out toAlumni everywhere. We hope that you willmark your calendar now, make plans to at-tend, and be present if you possibly can.The year 1925 has been called a "NewEpoch" year in view of the great develop-ments that have been inaugurated under theinspiration of President Burton. Alumni ofthe University have played a notable partin this advancement and have done a workthat likewise marks a "New Epoch" yearin our Alumni history. The Reunion thisyear — the thirty-fourth anniversary of theUniversity, the sixty-ninth anniversary ofthe Old University will be held in cele-bration of this University and Alumni progress — a "New Epoch Reunion." This special observance should not only be held onthe campus — we urge ali of our AlumniClubs to hold meetings at this time, honor-ing President Burton and the Universityeverywhere in the celebration and Reunionspirit.But best of ali, come back to Chicago ifyou can. The 1925 Reunion Committee, thespecial groups and associations, the anniversary and other class officers, ali are mak-ing preparations for you and your return.These loyal Reunion workers deserve yourloyal support. It promises to be a notableand happy occasion ; but its fullest successdepends upon your attendance. It is yourAlma Mater, your Reunion. Mark yourcalendar Now — Alumni Day, June 13th.Welcome Home! The retirement of Dean Marion Talbot,recently announced, and told of elsewherein this number, marks the dose of a careerof service to the UniversityDean Talbot and of educational achieve-Retires ment that ranks among thehighest of such careers inthe field of university education. The University community and the Alumni gener-ally have long been somewhat familiar withthe varied and exceptional services MissTalbot has rendered ever since her connection with the University from the time itfirst opened its doors. It is unnecessary torecite here her many distinctions andachievements. Her retirement, however,again brings to mind her Constant influencetoward the welfare of the women of theUniversity, an influence which we knowhas long been deeply appreciated by ali whohave come in contact with her. Her retirement, too, serves to emphasize the changesthat are taking place in the faculty and administration of the University, and thepassing of that "great company" of menand women who did so much to bring theinstitution to its high place from its verybeginning.Wre regret to know that her work at Chicago has now come to an end. But we knowshe has richly merited her retirement andthat she leaves with the sincere apprecia-tion, esteem and best wishes of the University and the Alumni.* * *Ali Chicago Alumni know of the beautiful chimes in Mitchell Tower, in honorof Alice Freeman Palmer, the first Dean_, . of Women at the University,Chimes. . -and know of the ringmg ofthe Alma Mater by the chimes .at 10:05o'clock at night. There is another set ofchimes, however, which likewise rings theAlma Mater at the same hour and of whichfew Alumni know. These chimes are setin a hall clock in a certain residence inChicago. Their presence and their nightlyreminder of Alma Mater are expressive ofthe sincere and lasting loyalty to the University of the man who had them installed.They express his own profound interest inthe advancement of the institution he lovesand always works hard for; there is nohome anywhere in which their presencewould be more fitting. Perhaps many ofyou have already guessed who he is— butfor those who haven't we will happily revealthe "secret." He is Harold H. Swift, '07,Uiairman of the Board of Trustees.THE 1925 REUNIONWELCOME HOME! -+iiii¦4To the Alumni!To a marked degree this year hasbrought to the Alumni a true appreciationof the importance and value of our University. It has likewise shown the Universitythat the Alumni body has more than a mere"football enthusiasm" for it. We haveachieved a greater unity than ever before.It is therefore quite fitting that we shouldcelebrate this New Era on Alumni Day,Saturday, June 13. Ali Reunion activities,including the University Sing, have beenconcentrated in that day. The feature ofthe afternoon will be the Rodeo in IdaNoyes Field which both young and old — ifthere are any "old" — will enjoy.President Burton and the Alumni Trus-tees join the Reunion Committee in urgingyou to come back for One Big Day.Raymond J. Daly, '12,General Chairman.The 1925 New Epoch ReunionThe 1925 Reunion is but a few weeksaway. We have had a number of reunionsof special significance but none more impor-tant than the coming gathering in June.The Alumni, together with the University,are entering upon a new epoch and this firstNew Epoch Reunion must be a completesuccess!The Reunion CommitteeThe June Reunion is in the hands of anexperienced, capable and hard-working Committee. They are widely known among theAlumni. This Committee is as follows:General Chairman, Raymond J. Daly, '12Class Organizations, Lillian Richards, '19Rodeo, Harry R.

We have a goodly list ofnotable Reunion successes to our credit.This year should be the prize-winner and itis up to us ali to see that the prize is won. Raymond J. Daly, '12, Reunion ChairmanRaymond J. ("Pete") Daly, '12, General Chairman ofthe 1925 Reunion Committee, has made plans for a big"New Epoch" gathering- in celebration of a greatAlumnil year and University progress. "Pete", amember of Beta Theta Pi, Owl & Serpent, and othercollege societies and organizations, was very prominentin college activities. After graduation rie continued hisinterest by frequently serving in various Alumni af-fairs. He has a wide circle of Chicago friends andannouncement of his appointment as 1925 ReunionChairman met with hearty response among Alumni.After graduation he studied law and later enteredthe investment business. For some years he hasbeen connected with the Federai S'ecurities Corporation,Chicago. He's "something- of a golfer", too, being anofficiai of the Flossmoor Country Club. He is teeingup for a great Reunion this year and promises to drivethrough with complete success. He deserves the full-est support of ali Alumni in making the June Celebra-tion a historic Alumni event. Everybody — get be-hind him!The ProgramThe Program appears on another page inthe Magazine. It has been mailed out toover 25,000 Alumni in ali parts of the world.We may not have a very heavy attendancefrom Japan, India, China, and a few otherdistant spots — but we expect a great attendance from many states in the Union andespecially from Cook County.

In recent months he addressed manygroups of Alumni throughout the country, ccnstantlyinstilling his own intense loyalty and enthusiasm forthe cause. In this work his fine personality, characterand ability have proved invaluable.and we can understand how seriously he willbe concerned about the campaign while heis in the hospital.We are sure that your first shock of sur-prise will be immediately followed by a de-termined resolution to go out and get resultswhich will be so overwhelmingly convincingand favorable that President Burton, whilein the hospital, will be wholly free from anysense of worry or responsibility for ouralumni participation in this campaign — thecrowning achievement of President Burton'slife work.He needs you now and the Universityneeds vou, and we feel sure you will notfail.Your cheering reports will be promptlyforwarded to President Burton every dayand this will be most helpful to him in ef-fecting a speedy and satisfactory recoveryfrom this operation.John P. Mentzer, '98, Chairman,Chicago Alumni Committee.269270 The University of Chicago MagazineThe Greater University of Chicago"The response of the public and of theAlumni to the vision of the future of theUniversity of Chicago which we have beenendeavoring to show to them," said President Burton in a recent address, "has in turngiven to us who have been engaged in thework a new and most attractive vision ofa larger University, which it is possible forus to create."We have repeatedly said in recent monthsthat we had forsworn ambition for bigness,putting ali our emphasis on betterment. Inthe sense in which we said it, we mean itstili without abatement. But there is a sensein which we should like to create a greaterUniversity, a University the heart of whichshall be in the body of students and facultyworking on these quadrangles, but whichshall include also as organic parts of a community, having a real community con-sciousness, those residents of the city andsurrounding country who see what we areendeavoring to do, sympathize with our aimsand desire to take part in the realizations ofthem, ali our Alumni and former studentsthroughout the world, and finally many atleast of those who are under the instructionof the University by correspondence andthrough our publications."# * *Blackfriars Give $5,000 to Alma MaterThe University building fund was in-creased by five thousand dollars on Aprii 9,when Blackfriars, the men's organization,which has been producing musical comediesfor the past twenty years, withdrew thatamount from their trust fund, which wascreated in 1913 for the ultimate purpose oferecting a private theatre for Friar produc-tions, and offered it to the Committee onDevelopment.The gift was sanctioned at a meeting ofthe order held in the Reynolds ClubhouseTheatre, by a majority vote of those present,after hearing a report on the trust fund, andone from the Friar Board of Trustees whichsuggested the donation of the money fromthe funds of the order.In donating these funds to the University,the Friars relinquish any remaining hopesthat they may have held for the buildingof a private Friar theatre, according to DonIrwin, Abbot. As most of the amount heldin trust was accumulated before 1917, theBlackfriar's plans for realizing their ambi-lions were badly shattered when the costsof their productions doubled after the warand the revenue received dici not increaseproportionately.Approximately three thousand dollars ofthe trust fund remains after this gift to theUniversity. Wieboldt Gives Funds for New LanguagesBuildingA gift of $500,000 from the WieboldtFoundation, to be devoted to the erectionof a new Modem Languages Building, wasannounced Aprii 16 at a meeting of threehundred alumni campaign workers at theHotel LaSalle. The new building will beknown as Wieboldt Hall.Wieboldt Hall, which will mark an important step in the progress of the plansoutlined years ago for the completion of themain buildings of the University, will standjust east of the present Classics Buildingand just west of Harper Memorial Library.With the erection of this building and thenew Divinity Chapel, the gift of Mrs. JosephBond, the "southwest court" will be madecomplete. And only one building more, theSocial Science hall, will be needed to createa solid front from University Avenue toEllis Avenue on the Midway.Departments to be housed in the newbuilding are those of Germanie Languagesand Literature, English, Romance Languages, and General Literature. Of thepresent gift, $450,000 will provide for theerection of the building and $50,000 forequipment. Further funds are sought forendowment and for professorships in thedepartments.President Burton, who announced the gift,said: "This generous contribution consti-tutes one more evidence of the interestwhich leading Chicagoans have shown inthe University for years. Many of ourbuildings bear the names of well-known cit-izens as donors. We shall be most gratifiedto add Wieboldt Hall to the number."The Wieboldt Foundation was establishedby Mr. and Mrs. \V. A. Wieboldt in 1921through a gift of assets valued at approximately $5,000,000: The object of the Foundation is to benefit religion and education, torelieve human suffering, to maintain publicworks, and to "lessen the burden of gov-ernment."* * *President Coolidge Commends UniversityMemorialsA hitherto unpublished statement by President Coolidge dealing with university memorials appears in a book, "Great UniversityMemorials," just published by the Universityof^Chicago. President Coolidge States:"One test of the civilization of any ageis the regard which it has for the teachingsof the^ past and the opinion of posterity.The Greeks and Romans had these in ahigh degree. Dante spoke of the future inthe lasting record of his great love for Beatrice. Gothic cathedrals of the MiddleAges -'¦" ' ' "The Alumni Campaign 271reverence. The Lincoln memorial is builtfor the centuries in the confident beliefthat generations and generations yet tocome will prize it as a magnificent inspir-ation."The memorial idea is sound and is sureto grow as increasing opportunities presentthemselves. One of the most encouragingsigns is the tendency today to look to in-stitutions of higher education for memorialsites. No more fitting agencies for this pur-pose can be imagined. For universities arenot repositories of the dead. They are morealive than the marketplace; their eyes arenot only on the present, but on the past andthe future. And the life within their wallsis always young and acquisitive. To placeyour name, by gift or bequest, in the keepingof an active university is to be sure that thename and the project with which it is asso-ciated will continue down the centuries toquicken the minds and hearts of youth, andthus make a permanent contribution to thewelfare of humanity."In the book the names of John D. Rocke-feller, William K. Vanderbilt, George F.Baker, Collis P. Huntington, Andrew Car-negie, P. A. B. Widener, Julius Rosenwald,James B. Duke, George Eastman, and manyothers are given as typical of men whosememory has been perpetuated in college oruniversity buildings."The tomib memorial has had its day,"says the book. "In its place is stili a building, but the new building of the new age, theilluminated building, the building with Windows, that typifies the memorial which livesand serves and enlightens."The book describes the establishment ofthe Sorbonne, and mentions, among others,Brown, Williams, Dartmouth, Colgate, Cornell, Bowdoin and many other colleges anduniversities.Within the last ten years, $500,000,000 hasbeen bestdwed as endowments upon American colleges and universities by men ofwealth. Gifts by citizens of Chicago, aggre-gating $16,000,000, m^ny of whose nameshave been memorialized in buildings in theUniversity of Chicago Quadrangles, havebeen made since the founding of the University in 1892.* * *Gifts to the University Not Connected Withthe Development FundA gift of one of the finest manuscriptsever received by the University has beenmade by Mr. C.

Ten thousand dollarshas been given by Mr. Cari D. Greenleaf,'99, for the work of Rush Medicai College,in recognition of the efficient and unselfishservice of Dean Ernest E. Irons. The LauraSpelman Rockefeller Memorial has made agrant of $1,500 for a preliminary inquiry ofthe study of methods of civic education invarious countries. The United States National Museum at Washington has given theUniversity a collection of fossil plants tomake more useful the large collection alreadyinstalled in Walker Museum.Early in the year, Mr. Julius Rosenwald,whose solicitude for the growth of the University has been often exemplified, gave$25,000 to pay for certain historical materialsecured by Professor J.

Over one hundred members andguests were present. The Martin MusicCompany of Los Angeles lent us a very fine radio, through which we hoped to pick upPresident Burton's speech in Chicago; buitoo much interference in the air made thisimpossible. However, our President, MissEva Jessup, read us portions of the speechfrom manuscript, so we did not have to missit altogether. A little later in the eveningwe were able to listen in on Dr. Robert A.Millikan, who was broadcasting from KHJ,The Times, Los Angeles. Dr. Millikanspoke of the marvelous development ofradio and telephony that research at thegreat educational centers of the country hasmade possible, and emphasized the need ofcertain of those centers for an adequate endowment to make the continuance of sucriresearch possible.After a very delightful dinner, Dr. Speikoutlined the pian for contributions to theDevelopment Fund, subscription cards werepassed, and subscriptions to the amount of$25,000 were announced to the credit of TheSouthern California Association before themeeting adjourned.

We had adinner meeting at the University Club, atwhich our attendance was about 25% of theMemphis list. After the dinner we weresuccessful in hearing Dr. Burton's speechread from a Kansas City broadcasting station. Our quota for Memphis was $3,248.00and this was raised by pledges from alumni,who were present and signed pledge cards.The most interesting gift which we re-ceived was $270.00 from. Mrs. Elizabeth M.Houk, who entered the University in 1892and who states that she was the first womanto matriculate in the University. When shearrived in Chicago, nobody knew anythingabout the University and even the horse-drawn cab drivers could teli her nothing, butshe had the general location and startedout in a horse-drawn vehicle for the SouthSide. She arrived in the vicinity where shethought the University wasi located andmade inquiries at a drug store and the drug-gist said that he knew of no University oùtthere, but that there was a man by thename of Harper who was starting a school,and possibly this was the school that shewanted. After she had made her arrange-ments to enter the University, she foundthat she could not find a boarding houseand for two weeks ate at the same table withthe faculty of the new University.The largest gift (made by Mr. Bruce) wasfor $2000.00. The gifts ranged from $50.00to $300.00.We organized as a locai Alumni Club ofthe University and elected the followingofficers— C. Arthur Bruce, '06, J.D. '08, President, Auvergne Williams, J.D.

It mustbe borne in mind that in almost every casethe course to be pursued depends on condi-tions so numerous and so varied that anycase which involves considerable. amounts orin which there may appear to be any com-plications should be taken up with counsel.The University, however, will be glad toco-operate in the examination and solutionof the problems of any individuai.Gifts to the University are deductible to acertain extent from taxable incomeThe most direct effect of the federai income tax law upon a gift to an institutionlike the University of Chicago is that con-tributions to the aggregate extent of 15 percent of the taxable income of the donor aredeductible for tax purposes. The extent towhich this operates as a saving of tax tothe donor varies, of course, with the maximum rate of tax to which he is subject.For example, a person having taxable netincome of $100,000 (not including any divi-dends) may make a gift of $15,000 to theUniversity, which, by reason of the deducti-bility of the gift, will reduce his tax in theamount of $5,950, so that the net cost tohim of the gift will be only $9,050, whilethe benefit to the University will be $15,-000. A person with a like income of $50,-000 may make a gift of $7,500 at a cost of$5,880, and one with a like income of $25,-000 may make a gift of $3,750 at a cost of$3,297.50. It should be noted, of course, that the aggregate of ali deductible contributions maynot exceed 15 per cent of the net income,except in the case of a taxpayer whose contributions have annually exceeded 90 percent of his net incoine for the ten precedingyears.Gifts are not subject to federai gift tax norfederai estate tax nor to Illinois inheritancetaxA gift to an institution such as the University of Chicago, whether made in prop-erty or in money, without limitation as toamount, is expressly excluded from the operation of the new federai tax on gifts. Agift by will to the University is likewise excluded from the taxable estate for purposesboth of the federai estate tax and the Illinois inheritance tax.Gifts during the donor's lifetime may be madeat less cost than gifts by willIt should be noted that while the benefitto the University is the same, the cost to thetaxpayer may vary greatly ¦ according towhether the gift is made (a) in his lifetime,(b) by will, or (e) by his heirs.A gift made during the lifetime of an individuai is excluded from his taxable estateas fully as if it were a gift by will, and fur-thermore is also deductible from his income.Accordingly, the income tax saved by acontribution during his lifetime is that muchadditional saved for his estate. Even in thecase of postponed gifts, it may be preferableto make them in the donor's lifetime throughthe creafion of a trust instead of by will, soas to effect a saving in tax.In many families the heirs, after the deathof a parent, establish funds or make gifts inmemory of the parent. The property ormoney so used has, however, already beenmade the subject of the federai estate andstate inheritance taxes and has thereby beenmaterially reduced. This results, therefore,either in a smaller gift than could have beenmade by the parent at the same cost, or ina gift of the same size at a greater cost tothe heirs.

Thebox office will open for ticket sales Monday,May 4.The plot of "Kaiti from Haiti" is a corker,if we may judge from the various criticaireviews that have praised the show recenti}-.It has to do with the mysterious researchesof a certain University Professor who pro-poses to prove his claims through the medium of his colored servant, Gullah, a bigblack boy, whose main objects in life areeating and sleeping, and his comic remarksand action furnish the most screaming hu-mor of the show. He and his side-kick, Epidemie Washington, who assist the Professorin bis Voodoo orgies, are the comedy leadsof the performance, and their clever linesare guaranteed to produce a laugh a minutefor the entire three acts.Gullah has a little sweetheart back inHaiti, which he claims to be his native country, and using this motif, Hamilton Cole-man, veteran producer of Friars, has orig- inated some of the best songs and dances ofthe show. When that "Haitian Kaitian"Glide begins to wail from the orchestra pit,and the boys on the stage, in their costumesof Haitian Hula Lous begin their dance, andsing "Primitive Papa," you'll be mighty gladyou bought your tickets early. As EpidemieWashington says, "Yas Suh, dis am de socialevent ob de year."Starting on June 9, and continuing throughthe balance of the week which precedesConvocation, the Seniors will don the capand gown and wear them about campus andto ali classes. This custom is followed bymany of the Eastern schools and some ofBradley Davis, '27, as Priscilla,in 1925 Blackfriar's Showthe surrounding universities, according toBruce MacFarlane, a Senior, who made themotion to establish the custom at the University. As in previous years, plans werelaid to have the costumes available solely forthe Convocation exercise, which is to be heldthis year on June 16, but present arrange-ments insure their arrivai early enough tobe distributed to the Seniors before June 9.This custom, which the Seniors hope toinaugurate as a precedent for ali ensuingclasses, will carry with a feeling of classunity and distinction, and will allow theSeniors to finish in a dignified manner.278THE long awaited trip to the Orient forthe baseball team is at last a reality.Officiai sanction of the proposed 10,000 milejourney, which was scheduled for last yearand postponed because of unsettled condi-tions in Japan, was granted by unanimousconsent of the University Athletic Board.The twelve members of the Board who votedto send the team abroad are: Coach A. A.Stagg, Walter A. Payne, Professor ClarenceWoodward, Dean Earnest Hatch Wilkins,Dr. Dudley B. Reed, Dean W. H. Spencer,Capt. Jewett D. Mathews, Major F. M. Bar-rows, Dean Henry G. Gale, Dean James A.Field, Dean Basii C. H. Harvey, and JosephPegues who is the Alumni representative onthe Board.The trip will probably be the biggest evertaken by a University team, with games inJapan, Hawaii, the Philippines, and possiblyChina. The team, which will leave at thedose of the summer quarter, will numberapproximately thirteen men. Wallie Marks,pitcher and out-fielder of the Varsity nine,is the only man on the team that Stagg willretain for football. From the remaining listof eligibles, Coach Norgren will make hisselections for the trip. Because of the urgentrequest from Watseda University, for theMaroons to be in Japan as soon as possible,it is unlikely that any games will be playedin this country enroute to the Pacific Coast.Coach Norgren expects to sail for the Orientwith a good team that will be capable ofgiving the Japanese and other of their oppo-nents the best of competition.To date the baseball team has won threegames out of five. After getting away to agood start by trimming Northwestern, theVarsity nine dropped the next two to Iowaand Indiana, but carne back in good style bydefeating Purdue 4 to 0 and winning overIllinois, for the first time since 1919, by ascore of 5 to 4, in the hardest fought gameof the season, before a record crowd.The University rifle team defeated theWorcester Polytechnic Institute team in atelegraph match, during the early part ofAprii, 500 to 488, iron sights were used.This victory, which was the eighth straightfor the Maroon riflemen, marked the con-clusion of the most successful year in thissport in the history of the University. TheUniversity team went through the entiregeneri" witVinnf hpincr defeated Kimball Valentine, '25,Captain of the Tennis TeamThe University net men broke even intheir Conference opener with Minnesota onMay 1, by halving both the singles and thedoubles with their guests. The playing ofCaptain "Kim" Valentine was the feature ofthe afternoon. After losing the first set 8-6and dropping four games out of the firstfive in the second set, Valentine demon-strated his ability to swat the pneumatic bytaking the next five games and winning thesecond set 6-4. The third set was also wonby Valentine 6-4.In a dual track meet with Purdue on May2, the University team was nosed out of thehonors by a score of 72^ to 62^4. Bert Mc-Kinney made a good showing in his firstmeet for the University by gathering a totalof 18 points. The loss of Bruce MacFarlanegreatly hindered the Maroons' chances ofovershadowing Purdue. MacFarlane, whomade his final appearance at Pennsylvania,has completed his period of competition forConference sports. The chilly weather andthe earliness of the outdoor season were toa large measure responsible for the slowtime in most of the events.79gF2SSE2E2E^f2E^EaQQEaF2Qf2KaQKaEaQE2QQKaKaQE2e3E2Eag2QK2QQQeaKaKaEaKaE2E3ZaE2QK2E2f2EaE2e2E2QF3g2KaKilgsa saESTHE LETTER BOXK3Dietetics Work in Porto RicoPresbyterian Hospital,San Juan, Porto Rico.Dr. Katherine Blunt,University of Chicago.My dear Dr. Blunt:I have intended writing you before thislate date to teli you of my new work andthis fascinating Island I ani living on.

In private rooms Iwork with Americans and the wealthy classof Porto Ricans; in semi-private the middleclass; in the wards the day laboring classof Porto Ricans and negroes who come fromthe little huts which are made from rovai-paini bark and cane. In many of these littleshacks families of ten and eighteen will live.The stories that these people teli makeyour heart ache for them. Since this is a mis-sion hospital the large percent of our patientsare of this type. Through our daily clinicswe render our greatest service. In this waythousands of people coming from ali partsof the Island and from many small islandsnear Porto Rico are given medicai treatment.Every day is full of new interests and ex-periences. The Island is like a beautiful garden in June with stately palm trees wavingtheir graceful branches; gorgeous poinsettasblooming everywhere, even around thehumblest little Straw huts; the most colorfuland beautiful shrubbery I have ever seen.Of the Crotons alone there are over a hun-dred varieties. The lovely grapefruit grovesmake me think I am in Florida and thebananas, cocoanuts and oranges growing aliaround without cultivation, suggest the Garden of Eden. And yet a very large percentof the people are suffering from malnutri-tion.

Thirty-oneDepartments of the University shared in theassignments. Dean Marion Talbot RetiresDean Marion Talbot is completing herfinal quarter at the University. The an-nouncement of her retirement, which shemade informally to the residents of GreenHall, of which she has been head since theerection of the building, carne as a surpriseto the University. Her retirement as Deanof Women and Professor of Household Administration will become effective in June.In commenting on her retirement MissTalbot said, "It is not easy to sever ties thathave held so many years, but I am leavingwith fulfilled faith in the service of the University and the quality of its students, menand women alike."Miss Talbot expeets to leave soon afteithe Spring Convocation for her summerhome in New Hampshire. After an extendedvacation there, she will return to Chicago todevote her energies to a number of interestsengaging her attention.In the thirty-three years that Dean Talbothas been identilìed with the University, shehas performed the duties to which she hasbeen assigned most admirably. In her workas Professor of Household Administration,she has become a recognized authority onthings pertaining to the home. In viewingher service as Dean of Women, too muchcan not be said. To fully appreciate herservice in this connection, one has but toreflect upon the high type of womanhoodthat has gone forth from our University toknow that somewhere the life of someoneof high ideals, an appreciation of the betterthings, and a marked ability was permeatingthe lives of the young women of "Chicago."As a builder of character, Dean Talbot haslew if any peers, and her success in shapingthe lives of others will stand as a monumentto the greatest contribution one can maketo society. With the retirement of Miss Talbot, the University faces a loss that is noteasily retrieved; a loss that is deeply re-gretted by the Faculty, the Alumni, andthose of the student-body who have alsohad their lives enriched in their associationwith her.Miss Talbot carne to the University fromWellesly College, where she was an instructor in Household Administration, in 1892, atthe invitation of President Harper who wasforming the nucleus of a university thenexisting only as a pian. When the University opened its doors in October, 1892, MissTalbot was present as Dean of Women inthe Senior Colleges. Associated with herwas Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer as Deanof Women in the Graduate Schools.

The University, in its Colleges of Arts, Literature, and Science, hasgiven only a limited number of courses inhousehold administration. The result ofthese conditions has been that the labora-tories in home economics, which were orig-inally planned for the preparation of teachers, have gradually been opened to generalstudents who were seeking courses in preparation for the duties of home making. Withthe opening of the coming year the academiccourses which have thus grown up in theSchool of Education will be transferred tothe Colleges of Arts, Literature, and Science where they will serve the purposes ofthe general student body. Courses in themethods of teaching home economics willbe retained in the School of Education anddeveloped in the same way as are the coursesin the methods of teaching history, English,mathematics, naturai science, and art. TheArt Department, which grew up in theSchool of Education under somewhat similarcircumstances, was transferred to the Colleges of Arts, Literature, and Science lastyear. The transfer of the Home EconomicsDepartment makes it possible to devote theenergies of the School of Education tostrictly professional courses throughout.Subject-matter will be dealt with only in sofar as it is necessary to supplement, for thetraining of teachers, the courses given inthe Colleges of Arts, Literature, and Science.This also tends to e nphasize the development which has been going on in the Schoolof Education in the direction of advancedwork for supervisors and graduate studentsas distinguished from courses intended togive subject-matter to prospective teachers.Ali of the work in subject-matter will nowbe given by general University departmentsand students will be registered for thesecourses in the Colleges of Arts, Literature,and Science.Two Modem Language StudiesThe Executive Committee of the ModemForeign Language Study has appropriated$3,200 to Mr. Buswell for a scientific inves-tigation of the learning of French and Spanish. The method of investigation will be aphotographic study of eye-movements inreading these languages. Groups of studentsbeginning the study of a foreign language at different levels of maturity will be photo-graphed at intervals of six weeks throughout the year and the character of theirprogress will be observed from the eye-move-nient records. Various members of theDepartment of Education have carried onextensive eye-movement studies of the reading of English, the reports of which havebeen published in a series of six monographs.While a study of the reading of foreign language was carried on and reported in 1923,the present investigation will be vèry muchlarger in scope. Subjects for the experimentwill be secured from classes in the University Elementary School, the University HighSchool, and the Junior College.* * *The Department of Modem Language ofthe Junior College has acquired a logophonefor use in its experimental study of themethods and results obtainable in vocaliza-tion under normal classroom conditions inmodem language courses. The logophoneis an adaptation of the electrical loud-speaker, tonai control, and direct soundtransmission by means of head-sets, commonto the radio, to the regular recording andreproducing mechanism of the phonograph.ft enables orai instruction in pronunciationto be given simultaneously with orai recita-tion, effecting an economy in classroom procedure, and makes possible the study andtreatment of individuai problems. Specialphonetic records have been prepared by O.F.

Miss Talbot'sretirement and Miss Breckenridge's association with the School of Social Service Administration, leave the personnel of thefaculty of the combined departments that ofthe present Home Economics Department,Miss Blunt continuing as Chairman.Home Economics was started in the College of Education to meet the need fortrained teachers of the subject. As far backas 1897 a course called "Household Art andScience in Elementary Education" was of-fered in the Department of Pedagogy. In1900, the date of the real beginning of thedepartment, Mrs. Alice Peloubet Nortoncarne to the new School of Education as Assistant Professor of the Teaching of HomeEconomics. The descriptions of her firstcourses in "Food," "Sanitation" and "Advanced Work" ali contain some mention ofthe place of the subject in the schools. Soon,however, the subject matter developed andthe methods courses were organized sep-arately.The textiles and clothing side of the workcarne in via art and handwork, with muchspinning, dyeing and weaving, and with em-phasis on primitive industries. There arethree "Courses in Sewing" listed in the1903-4 catalogue, and next year a Textilesection with several courses including the"Teaching of Sewing." It was not until1912-13 that ali these different lines weregathered into one department similar to thepresent Department of Home Economics,with the emphasis on subject-matter coursesas well as on the contribution of home economics to the schools. For the current year50 different courses are offered, and themaster's and the doctor's degree as well asthe bachelor's, are being awarded to students majoring in Home Economics.Parallel with the development in theSchool of Education has gone that of theDepartment of Household Administration inthe Colleges of Arts, Literature and Science.It was initiated most interestingly in 1903with Miss Talbot, who before that had beena member of the Sociology Department, asAssociate Professor of Household Adminis- Breckinridge. Mrs. Norton thus had a doublé appointment which continued till herleaving the University in 1913. Silice thenthe work has been carried on by Miss Talbot and Miss Breckinridge, and its highideals constanti}' maintained.The. transfer of the Department of HomeEconomics to the Colleges, of Arts, Literature and Science is thus a significant recog-nition of its contribution to University education. The pian for the future is a responseto the demand for further training, on a highscientific level, looking toward the administration of a home. The work should de-velop insight into the social and economieposition of modera homes, and should il-lumine home-making problems with thewealth of material available from the naturaiand social sciences.Professional home economics training will,of course, also be continued. For teachingand supervision, and for advanced work inhome economics education, the coòperationbetween the Department of Home Economics and that of Home Economics Educationwhich will remain in the School of Education gives an especially satisfactory situa-tion. It is this field into which the alumnaeof the Department have gone in largest numbers. Many are also going into extension,nutrition work, institutional management andother lines.The first addition to the faculty under thenew regime will be Dr. Hazel Kyrk, whocomes in the autumn as associate professor.Miss Kyrk, who received her doctorate inpoliticai economy from the University, isthis year professor of Home Economics atIowa State College. She has always beenprimarily interested in the economie and thesociological problems of homes and of theconsumer. Her courses next year will include an elementary one called "The Household in Modem Industriai Society" andothers for advanced undergraduates andgraduate students. Both undergraduate workand research are thus to be developed onthe economie side of home economics.Other new courses given next year include an advanced "Survey of Clothing,""Problems in the Science of Cooking" and"Practice in Feeding and Physical Care ofChildren in the Nursery School." The lat-ter is to permit actual work and observationin the University Cooperative NurserySchool.

PresidentBurton, also, has promised to be present,but unfortunately his illness may prevent.After dinner the annual vaudeville willtake place in Ida Noyes Theatre. Thealumni have promised to initiate anothergroup of the "sniveling, shivering, shrinkingseniors" according to a new ritual which hasbeen developed this year by a special self-constituted committee of the "Sons and Sis-ters of the Shining Silver Simoleon." Inaddition, Mr. Albert C. Hodge is attemptingto organize a faculty act, concerning which,Mr. Hodge says, we can only hope for thebest. Bill Krumbein is writing a burlesqueof certain of the officiai customs and habitsof the School.The usuai dance and general get-togetherwill then conclude the festivities of the evening. The price of $1.50 per piate will coverthe entire cost again this year. New Method of Electing the C & A StudentCouncilFor a good many years, it has been cus-tomary for the retiring council to propose aslate of candidates for each of the counciloroffices and to have the student body'elect thecouncil for the coming year from these rec-ommendations. This system has workedonly relatively well, for it did not give thestudent body a chance to propose studentsit thought qualified and capable of holdingpositions on the council. Although it waselected by popular vote, the council was es-sentially undemocratic; it was a self-per-petuating group.The present council early decided that itwould give the student body an opportunityto express its opinion on councilor membersfor the following year. No existing consti-tutional provisions permitted this to be done.It was accordingly decided to allow the student body to present names to it by petition,these names to be placed on the ballot if thepetitioner could meet the scholastic require-ment for council membership. Technicallyit was simply shifting a part of the work ofthe council back to the student body, butactually it permitted a more democraticnomination of the council. It is stili tooearly to predict the results of this method,but it seenis worthy of consideration in sub-sequent years..;-'"3%&\--%-:-. ¦uà £i % % ;_¦M« \ ' V*V$4 \.^;--,wàMai JS'T.

TriflesBy Joseph Warren BeachFor having written "The Technique ofThomas Hardy" and "The Method of HenryJames," Mr. Beach might well be concededa certain dignity and austerity. But thebest of men sustain dignity and austerityonly with difficulty. After writing JeanChristophere, Romain Rolland wrote ColasBreugnon, Burgundian; after writing a for-midable trio of criticai works, Joseph Warren Beach has written Meek Americans.It describes a holiday in Europe whichMr. Beach himself characterizes as "theSabbatical of a professor who treated hissabbath like a Saturday night." When thisaustere critic went to Europe he left behind high seriousness. But do not thinkthat he thereby became either ribald ormaudlin. Aspasia of course was with him,and Aspasia was not the sort to allow ahusband to go too far, even were she notso utterly charming that he could have nodesire to v/ander. Joseph blundered into anart studio; he flirted at the Cafe de Pariswith a Titian blonde. He patronized theCasinos at Nice and Monte Carlo, and if youare going to Europe and desire to knowwhere the best dance orchestras are to befound consult Joseph Warren Beach. Butif Mr. Beach treated his Sabbatical like aSaturday night, let us hasten to say that itwas a fundamentally chaste Saturday night.Mr. Beach is far removed from Mrs.Grundy; he has no fear of sex. On the con-trary, he treats the prudery of Americansin Europe with good-natured irony. Inad-vertently he and a rather prudish lady en-counter a couple of lovers in the Luxem-bourg Gardens. Is Joseph disconcerted?Not in the least. Braving his companion'sfrown, he turns to her with gentle wordsof appreciation: "Lovers and poets andchildren. . . .We may look upon them asour monitors, our teachers in the art of liv-ing." Joseph gazes unashamed upon pic-tures in the Naples Museum which aremuch too Rabelaisain for his companions.He does not fear to frequent the haunts ofartists.This book is evidence that its authorknows how to tura a phrase. Percy HolmesBoynton says that these essays and sketchesare "the urbane utterances of a worldlingwith a sense of humor and a gift of phrase."One sometimes doubts the "worldling;" butseldom have the efforts of a good man tobe wicked given birth to so light, delightful,and infectious a style.When he turned to European scenes Mr.Beach did not leave his love of ideas inMinnesota. A trivial scrap of conversationinsDires him to a disnuisitinn mi Frsnrh Joseph Warren Beachcharacter, or he walks down a dirty Streetand constructs an entire philosophy to fit it.He has the artists' hatred of mechanical ef-ficiency: "To us they (modera appliances)suggest so pitiful a waste of energy. Wethink of cities and races wholly given overto modem improvements, pushing up thescale of living, turning luxuries into neces-sities, so busy saving time they have no leis-ure, so passionately in pursuit of comfortthat they have no pleasure in life." But donot turn to Meek Americans to be edifiedwith deep serious thoughts. Mr. Beachlooked upon his travels as a holiday fromseriousness; he took pains to enjoy them,and he has written a book that you willtake delight in without too much wear andtear on the mindOur author suffers from the curse ofthose wdio live a great deal in the world ofimagination. Where love and art are con-cerned he can't help being a little ridiculous.In the studio of a Paris artist he "listenseagerly for some gospel of art, ready forthe flash of insight with which he mightillumine the aesthetic problem in general."In his search for oddities of character he istoo easily impressed by ex-bullfighters, rag-ged poets, and artists models. His eager-ness for beauty frequently betrays him; butit is only fair to say that his feeling forirony and humor saves him from too flag-rant absurdity.The publishers of Meek Americans speakof the "adventures that befell Joseph Warren Beach. .. . " The word is somewhatambitious. It is true that Mr. Beach wassmuggled into the Vatican by a beggar-guide, and that he had a quarrel with astrange woman in the compartment of atrain going from Milan to Brieg. But theevents of his travels were mainly common-place. Joseph himself however is not com-monplace. In his impressions you will findthe journey rescued from banality. He seldom errs on the side of sentimentality ; heknows how to indulge in sentiment.Harry Bingh'am.289NEWS OFTHE CLASSESAND ASSOCIATIONSClass Secretaries'93. Herman von Holst, 72 W. Adams St.'94.

In such a casethe detriment to the estate consists of estateand inheritance taxes which might have beenavoided, and the benefit to the University isno greater.Donations may be advantageously m a d ethrough gift of properly which has appre-ciated in vaineThe present ruling of the Bureau of Internai Revenue permits the owner of prop-erty, such as securitics or real estate, whichhas substantially increased in value siliceit was acquired, to give it to an educationalinstitution and take credit in his income-taxreturn for the value at the time of the giftwithout having to account for any "profit"realized. For example: The donor mayhave bought stock for $10,000 which has ap-preciated so that its market value is $15,000.He may give this stock to the University inkind, without selling it, and be listed as a$15,000 donor. In such case, he is entitledto a deduction of $15,000 and does not haveto treat the $5,000 appreciation as incomeor liquidated gain for tax purposes. The en-tire amount of the appreciation in value is thus conserved for educational purposes,while the cost to the donor of making thegift is substantially decreased.This may be a very material considerationfor a taxpayer with a large income. Let usassume that a donor paid $50,000 for prop-erty which has a present . value of $100,000,and that the donor's income is subject to themaximum rate of income tax, that is 46 percent, subject to the capital gain section ofthe law. If he sold the property, the taxhe would have to pay on his profit wouldbe $2:j,000. On the other hand, if he givesthe property to the University and takes adeduction of $100,000 from his income, hemay effect a saving in tax of $46,000. In asense, therefore, he is $69,000 better off inthe matter of taxes, while the University hasreceived a gift worth $100,000. In the samesense, the donor has made $100,000 avail-able for educational purposes at a cost tohim of $31,000.Although the ruling of the Treasury Department upon which these conclusions restcannot be considered as unquestionable un-til it has been sustained by the courts of lastresort, the ruling has been in force for fouryears and seems likely to be permanent andfinal.A > *.-* ;*£.>iT. ì-S^-J ^ ---yjr^, ì^*J, l.-* a^^-i ì^'Zjc *a &*-Z-ìl ^s^** t&*ZJZk ^s>^mù f%n~-- 'ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARSSirice the "Shot Was Fired Heard 'Round the World"Do You KnowThat from Aprii on to June, Lexingtonand Concord, Arlington and Cambridge, with the residents along theline of the f amous march from Bostonto Concord in 1775, are playing hostto the American Nation?

Until recent years it meant an Englishman long res-ident in India. Formerly The word Eura-sian was applied to the persons now calledAnglo-Indians. Syrian Christians have beenin existence on or near the Malabar, orsouthwestern coast of India from at least asearly as the sixth century. The names Ja-cobite and Mar Thoma are simplj' names oftwo seets of that body. Some of the SyrianChristians have become Roman Catholicsand some have joined the Church of England. That explains the use of the termsAnglican and Catholic to the Syrian Christians. The existence of these Syrian Christians on the Malabar coast is most interesting.
