Marks, who remained at home to repre-sent the University in football last autumn,was composed of the same personnel whichplaced second in the conference last spring,with the addition of one member of thefreshman team. The squad included :Captain R. W. Cunningham '26, ist.base; R. N. Howell '25, 2nd. base; J. R.Howell '25, Pitcher and Center fìelder;W. C. Weiss '25, Right Feld ; J. E. Gub-bins '26, Pitcher; J. R.

Hoerger '28, RightField; N. H. Norgren '14, Coach.The team departed from Chicago forSan Francisco via Seattle over the GreatNorthern Railway on August 7th, with aroyal God-speed from Old Man Stagg and wives, mothers, sweethearts and friends ofthe boys. A series of games had been ar-ranged to the coast, at Fargo, NorthDakota, Whitefish, Montana, Wenatchee,Washington, Everett, Washington, Ta-coma, Washington, and the University ofCalifornia, at San Francisco, California.We won the first three games, were defeatedby the Everett and Tacoma teams, andtook the final game from the University ofCalifornia team in a ninth inning rally, bya score of 3 to 2. The score was 2 to Oagainst us, in the ninth, when, with twomen on bases, C. L Brignall hit a smashinghome run which brought us victory.The chambers of Commerce at Fargo,Whitefish, Wenatchee and Everett ar-ranged sight-seeing trips which the boysenjoyed immensely. At Fargo, we viewedthe Red River valley; at Wenatchee, thefine appiè orchards; and at Everett, thelumber mills. We had an extra day atWhitefish and, through the courtesy of Mr.J. H. Hicken and Father Carroll, we weretaken for a motor boat ride on WhitefishLake, had a fine swim, and then a tripthrough the west end of Glacier NationalPark, ending with a three-mile hike up themountains to Avalanche Lake. In the wayof a preliminary training for the oceantrip, the squad went from Seattle to SanFrancisco via the S. S. Alexander and, inni112 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEview of the fact that a fairly cairn seaprevailed, there was no evidence of recal-citrant stomachs among the boys.On August 22nd, we boarded the S. S.President Pierce at San Francisco, boundfor Honolulu, T. H., where we were tospend a week and engagé in four gameswith the Island teams. Up to this time,we had met with many interesting events,such as wonderful sights, generous hospi-tality and stiff competition in baseball, butyou can imagine our feeling of surprise andhappiness when, entering our staterooms,we found a beautiful basket of fruit andsweets presented to each with the compli-ments and best wishes of Mr. Harold F.Swift. On board the Pierce, we werejoined by Dr. and Mrs. R. W. Webster,Mrs. J. W. Nye, and Ralph Webster whoacted as our mascot in Japan.As we neared Honolulu, we receivedRadiograms from the Chicago Alumni,greeting us with 'Aloha Team," and fromWilfred Tsukiyama who played on our teamin 1923, as well as from Dr. W. K. Changwho played in 191 5. Upon landing, wewere decked with Maroon leis and fragrantflower leis by the Alumni.The generous hospitality afìorded us bythe Alumni and other friends in Honolulu, coupled with the glorious beauty of thesea, sky and country-side of that romanticgroup of islands, and the languid atmos-phere to which we had to become more orless accustomed, tendered to lead us awayfrom thoughts of the primary object of ourvisit. We were there to play baseball andhad a series of four games scheduled. Uponour arrivai, at the request of Gov. Farring-ton and Major General Lewis, command-ing Schofield Barracks, we agreed to playthe Schofield Barracks team, champions ofthe army, as a feature of the opening of theAll-Hawaiian Territorial Fair.Our series in Honolulu «'as to be playedwith teams that played excellent baseball.Our first game, with the All-Japanese team,resulted in a victory for us, 17 to 3. Thegame with the Shofield Barracks squad waslost by a score of 3 to 1. We were thendefeated by the Young Chinese team, 8 to3, and by the All-Hawaiian team, io to 2.The last game was played with the All-Chinese team, champions of the HonoluluLeague, and we defeated them, 4 to 2. JoeGubbins pitched and was backed up in finestyle by his team-mates. The boys werebecoming accustomed to their surroundingsand conditions and displayed a rattling goodgame of ball.Waseda and Chicago Teams — at Tokyo, Japan25,000 attended the (JamesTHE JAPAN TRIP 113Some Entertainment for the MaroonsWhat with our baseball games, entertainment and swimming at Waikiki beach, weenjoyed an intensely interesting week. Wewere guests at an Hawaiian Luau where weate food cooked in the ground, raw fishsalad, two and three-fìngered poi, freshpineapple and papaia. We ate in trueHawaiian fashion — with our fingers. Forthe hulas, we used both eyes. A ninety-mile ride around the beautiful Oahu Island,taking in the windy Pali, dinner at Hal-ieva Hotel, and viewing the beautiful fìshesin the coral chasms through a glass bottomboat, will be long remembered.Our first formai meeting with ourAlumni was at the invitation of theAlumni residing in Honolulu to dinner atthe University Club. It was the first oc-casion of a meeting of Chicago Alumni inHonolulu and there were forty graduatesof the University present, besides ourselves.Dr. Webster and Mrs. Webster spoke onthe ambitions of the University and I spokeof the history of our trip. Mr. Cunning-ham and Mr. Howell expressed their ap-preciation of the hospitality afforded us bythe members of the Alumni. First but notleast, Mr. Riley H. Alien, editor of theHonolulu Star Bulletin, gave the addressof welcome and later made the motion thatthis dinner be the occasion of the organ- izing of the Alumni in Honolulu into anactive organization. The motion, of course,carried.Amid cheers to and from the Alumniwho had bedecked us with flower leis, wewere bidden 'Aloha Oe" as we movedslowly from the dock. Dr. and Mrs. Dr.R. B. Faus presented the boys with a sixty-pound bunch of bananas while the bandplayed "Yes We Have No Bananas."On the morning of September i8th,we arrived at Kobe, Japan, and were greet-ed and welcomed by Professor Iso Abeand members of the Waseda Alumni. FromKobe we went to Tokyo where we weremet at the station by the students of Wasedawho gave us an overwhelming welcome.After drawing up in battalion front fornumerous stili and moving picture cameramen, we were escorted to the ImperiaiHotel, our headquarters during our stay inTokyo. On Sunday, September 27th, wewere the guests of the President of WasedaUniversity at an excellent dinner given atthe home of the late Premier Okuma. ThePresident welcomed us with a splendidaddress in Japanese, which was translatedto us. Dr. R. W. Webster made the re-sponse for us. After dinner, we strolledabout the beautiful grounds, striving tokeep from getting into the focus of theH4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE"Ship Ahoy!" — Landing at Kobe, Japancinema camera which was making a recordof our visit there and which was presentedto our athletic department.As much as I should like to, I have notspace enough to teli of ali of the interest-ing things we saw and did in Japan, butshall have to content myself with givingyou the high-lights.The Japanese f ans are intensely interestedin baseball and they now claim it as theirnational game, also. As a result of thisinterest, the game is increasing in popular-ity and the all-around ability of the players,especially in the Universities, is improvingin a convincing manner. Their fielding,base running, barting, and pitching arehighly commendable ; the development inpitching was evidenced in the several finepitchers we met during the series.After four days of practice in Tokyo,during which we were closely watched byhundreds of students during each practicesession, we opened the Series with Wasedaon the occasion of the holiday decreed bythe Emperor and known as the day of theRice Harvest Festival. Before an attend-ance of 25,000 people, we defeated our op-ponents by a score of 2 to o. Joe Gubbinspitched a fine game. In the ninth inningWaseda got three men on the bases withnone out, but heady pitching and air-tightfielding kept our hosts from scoring.During this game several interestingevents took place. We were surprised at theabsence of vocal applause, laudable and derogatory. Every bit of applause wasby hand-clapping and equally generous toboth sides. The umpires were appointedfrom the other university teams. That isto say, when we played Waseda, threeMeiji players officiated, and when we playedMeiji, three Waseda players umpired, etc.The ofEciating of these men was quitesatisfactory and the players of ali of theteams accepted the decisions of the umpireswithout question.The several newspaper representatives,covering the game for the papers, usedcarrier pigeons to send in the accounts ofthe game. After each inning the reportertied his account to the pigeon and releasedthe bird. Four or five of them would bereleased, circle the field twice for altitudeand direction, and then scoot for downtown.Our next game was with Keio and wascalled at the end of the fifth inning, onaccount of rain, with the score O to 0.Four more games were destined to be tiegames. Rain, which is unusual in Octoberin Japan, at least much of it, broke in onour schedule and we were forced to apolicy of watchful waiting. However, wemanaged to get in a game here and there;but not under favorable conditions.The game with Meiji went ten innings,o to o, when it was called because of dark-ness. We could not do anything withPitcher Yasuda, and they had as muchtrouble with J. Howell and Wm. Macklind.We again met Meiji and the game wenteleven innings o to o, only to be called because of darkness. Yasuda again faced us.Gubbins pitched nine innings and Macklindthe last two. Our second game withWaseda was called at the end of the ninthinning, with the score O to o. J. Howellpitched for us and Takeuchi for Waseda.In these four games the pitching andfielding was of a high order. In order tokeep their heads above water, both teamshad to make perfect plays at the piate,doublé plays, and brilliant catches and stopsin the field. The Japanese people were verymuch interested in these games, some feeling that the games were fated to be drawngames. Finally we broke the jinx by de-feating Keio, 3 to 2. With the score tiedTHE JAPAN TRIP "5in the ninth, 2 to 2, we got two men onbases and McConnell squeezed R. Howellhome with a pretty bunt for the winningrun. Macklind pitched a fine game.After a week of rain, we departed, incompany with the Waseda team, for Osaka.We played at Takaradzuka, a recreationpark, half way between Osaka and Kobeand up on the mountain side. Our firstgame here was with Waseda and was calledat the end of the tenth inning, because ofdarkness, with the score 1 to 1. Joe Gubbins pitched. The next game was also withWaseda and we lost our first game on theisland, 1 to o. They played a fine gameand Pitcher Fujimoto kept our hits wellscattered.Then we played the two professionalteams composed of alumni of the variousuniversities. We defeated Takaradzuka7 to 6 and 8 to 5. J. Howell and Macklind pitched the first and Macklind thesecond. The Daimai team gave us oursecond defeat, 2 to I, in ten innings. Inthis game we faced Ono, the best pitcherin Japan.Finishing our series at Osaka, we trekedto the land's end, Shimonoseki, to embarkfor Korea, or Chosen, as the Japanese caliit. We stopped off at Myajima, thatbeautiful sacred isle, for one night andday and had an enjoyable visit, viewing thebeauty of the island and the tempie. Anover-night trip across the straits brought us to Fusan where we entrained for Taikyuwhere we played the Taikyu team and won,8 to 1. The next morning we arrived inKeijo (Souel) where we were to play fourgames. Somehow or other, the All-Koreanteam was not included in our schedule and,after many requests, we agreed to play themalso.We played the first game with theTakaradzuka team, which had been broughtover by a Keijo paper, to play us. Wewere much surprised to find here an up-to-date ball park with concrete stands, un-usually large field and an electric scoreboard. Before a crowd of Japanese,Koreans, and Foreigners (Americans andEnglish), we won the game, 9 to 6. Thiswas the dedicatory game in honor of thecompletion of the new ball field. We wonthe other games handily; All-Souel team, 15to 4; Takaradzuka, 7 to 4, and the All-Korean team, 11 to 2. Gubbins, Howell,and Macklind did the pitching. The teamas a whole was getting its "batting eye"under control.Our visit to Keijo was the occasion fora week holiday for the Americans andEnglish, and they were present at ali ofthe games. The Government-General ofChosen was especially hospitable to us andarranged a splendid sight-seeing tour of thecapital. We took in the palaces, temples,and other places of interest. The American Consul, Mr. Miller, entertained theyOn Japanese "Flivers" — At Kyoto, Japann6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEteam at tea, and the American Club ofSouel arranged a dance for us. The International Friendly Society, of which Mr. S.Niwa is general secretary, entertained uswith cinema views of the Kongo Mountainsin Korea. Ali in ali, we had a mighty finetime in the erstwhile Hermit Kingdom.At the invitation of Mrs. Nye, we had thepleasure of seeing some historical Koreandances.Upon our departure for Japan we weregiven an enthusiastic send-off by Japanese,Americans, English, and Koreans. Mr.Wm. Zuber of Keijo presented the teamwith an interesting trophy in the shape ofa stone pagoda standing about two feethigh. The pagoda carne from an ancientKorean monastery in the Kongo Mountains.It is in colors and is topped by a smallBuddha.Another crossing of the straits broughtus again to Japan. We won two games insouthern Japan, against the Moji team, 14to o, and the Fukuoka All-Stars, 12 to 3.Then we sailed from Shimonoseki throughthe beautiful Inland Sea to Kobe. Thenceto Kyoto where we spent four days and,incidentali}', defeated the Daimai team, 14to 1. Gubbins pitched a no-hit game.This victory attoned for the 2 to I defeatthey gave us at Osaka. We enjoyed sight-seeing at the old Japanese capital, visitingthe many palaces, shrines and temples. Atan earlier trip to Nara and Kyoto, as wewere guests of Professor Abe and WasedaUniversity, the Professor arranged that wehave the pleasure of shooting the Hodzurapids in boats. This was a beautiful andinteresting trip. At Nara we fed thehundreds of fame deer with sacred cookies,visited the Great Buddha, and rang theenormous beli with ali hands swinging theheavy beam that rings the beli. We didnot succeed in cracking the beli.Our next game was at Nagoya where wedefeated the Nagoya team, 6 to 0. Macklind allowed one hit. At Nagoya we enjoyed the hospitality of the Waseda Alumniat dinner. Speeches and songs wound upthe evening.Upon our return to Tokyo, Ave playedour final game with Waseda and they de feated us, 10 to 4. Chicago started 0with a rush and scored four runs, whi>looked like a safe lead in the fìfth inninbut Waseda was not to be denied its d;of hitting; and two home runs and a b;break for Chicago put our hosts in the leawhich they held to the end.The Japanese have a saying that 01should not say beautiful until he has seeXikko. The day following our last ganwe journeyed to Nikko as guests of Prof esor Abe, and enjoyed the beautiful lacqueretempie buildings, the sacred red bridge, ticryptomeria avenue, and the waterfalls su:rounded by the brilliant autumn foliage ethe Japanese maples. It was, indeed,beautiful spot, a sight to carry in our r<membrances of the wonderful hospitalitaccorded us by the men of Waseda and thpeople of Japan.In connection with the last game, Prcfessor Iso Abe, on behalf of the WasedUniversity, presented the team withbeautiful silk embroidered banner, bearin;the inscription, "The Seventh InternationaBaseball Series — Chicago and Waseda1925." To each of the squad, he presented ;beautiful black silk Haori with scenes 0Mt. Fujiyama and Arashiyama worked iithe yellow silk lining. On the outside anthree small crests of Waseda UniversityThe boys were each presented, also, witla W aseda watch fob.A summary of the games played is a:follows : Games played in United Stateson way to Pacific Coast, Chicago won 4lost 2 ; in Hawaii, Chicago won 2, lost 3in Japan, Chicago won 8, lost 3, tied 5in Korea, Chicago won ali 5. In the Japan-Korea series, 21 games were played, oiwhich Chicago won 13, lost 3, tied 5. Orthe entire trip, 32 games were played, oiwhich Chicago won 19, lost 8, and tied 5.As the squad stepped off the train, whenwe returned to Chicago, we ali felt deeplymoved by the throng of students, relativesand friends who greeted us and welcomedus back home. It was in many ways afitting climax to a great adventure.Our athletic relations with Waseda dateback to 1910, the year of the first visit of(Please iurn to page 142)Women's University CouncilIN THE November issue of the Maga-zine appeared a brief statement underthe caption DEAN OF WOMENREPLACED BY WOMEN'S BOARD,accompanied by a cut of the chairman ofthe new organization. This, as it was takenfrom a photograph made thirteen years lessfar from her youth than the present date,was not inappropriately neighbored by theheading EXPEDITION TO ARM-AGEDDON. The scheme, however, isnew, new in educational policy, so far aswe know. And in connection with it standout two significant things: the pian wasmade at the request of the Vice-President,by a group of faculty women themselves ;and it provides that study and supervisionof University concerns affecting womenshall be in the hands not of an individuaibut of a group. It is thus in two respectsa democratic pian and one in accordancewith the trend of the times, in both theacademic and non-academic worlds. Justas upon President Judson's retirement andagain upon President Burton's death, theBoard of Trustees asked the UniversitySenate to appoint a committee of the facultyto join with a committee of the Board toconfer upon the choice of a new President,so upon Miss Talbot's retirement, the seniorwomen of the faculty were asked intocouncil upon the situation thus arising.The originai committee, elected by thewomen summoned by Mr. Tufts, consistedof Miss Taibot, Miss Wallace, and Mrs.Flint, chairman. But they at once calledinto council Miss Abbott, Miss Blunt, MissBreckinridge, Miss Dudley, Mrs. Logsdon,and Miss Rickert.This group worked upon the problemwith interest, alacrity, and complete har-mony, being especially helped by MissTalbot's uniquely valuable experience, anddevised a pian under the provisions of whichthe affairs of women in the University arenow being conducted.It might well be asked why a change fromthe Deanship of Women should have beenmade, when that office has been a pattern to many other universities almost through-out the years of the University's existence.The answer lies in the size and complexityof the University today. We have 73women on the faculty, 918 graduate womenstudents, 2939 undergraduate women stu-dents. In the Index of the 1925 Cap andGown 73 items concern undergraduatewomen's organizations alone. When it isrealized that the University's unique op-portunity lies in the field of graduatework and, as need not be pointed out toa group of sapient alumni, that men andwomen students' concerns are not walledoff from one another in water-tight com-partments; and, further, that there are toconsider quite as many problems affectingindividuai as affecting organizations, it willbe seen that only a person who had grownup with the job could possibly have it aliin charge. Indeed the Committee, goingover the list of functions carried on by theoffice of the Dean of Women, found arange suggesting nothing in the world somuch as the list of duties expected of Mr.Well's Mr. Polly at the Thames-side inn :He spent the afternoon exploring the piemisesof the Potwell Inn and learning the duties thatmight be expected of him, such as . . .swabbing out boats, helping people land, em-barking, landing and time-keeping for the hhersof two rowing boats and one Canadian canoe,baling out the said vessels and concealing theirleaks and defects from prospective hirers, per-suading inexperienced hirers to start downstream rather than up, repairing rowlocks andtaking inventories of returning boats with aview to supplementary charges, cleaning boots,sweeping chimneys, house-painting, cleaningWindows, . . . cleaning pewter, washingglasses, turpentining woodwork, whitewashinggenerally, plumbing, and engineering, repairinglocks and clocks, . . . beating carpets andmats, . . . blocking and destroying wasps'nests, doing forestry with several trees, drown-ing superfluous kittens, and dog-fancying as re-quired, assisting in the rearing of ducklings andthe care of various poultry, . . . attend-ing inquests and funerals in the interestsof the establishment, . . . chasing hens andgoats from the adj acent cottages out of thegarden, making up paths and superintendingdrainage, gardening generally, running mis-117nS THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcellaneous errands, removing drunken and offensive persons from the premises by tact ormuscle as occasion required, keeping in with thelocai policemen, defending the premises ingeneral and the orchard in particular fromdepredators . . .To deal with the defense of the premisesin general and the orchard in particularfrom depredators, as well as to help withconstructive suggestions for better premisesand a more richly hearing orchard, the pianadopted provides for a Council with certainmembers ex officio and one or more members appointed by the President.

And they contribute knowl-edge from their special fields ranging fromGreek, through Chemistry, to HomeEconomics.Their field of work at present is suggestedby the creation of standing committees onHealth, Housing, Self-Support, GraduateStudents, Women's Organizations, andSocial Welfare. "Social Welfare" is abroad term. How much it is to includecan only be discovered through study andexperience. It will certainly, however, include the whole subject of student morale.The council, consisting now of seventeenmembers, meets monthly. The ExecutiveCommittee, consisting of five (Miss Blunt,Miss Dudley, Mrs. Flint, Miss Rickert,and Miss Wallace), meets weekly. In this way, it is hoped, the pian secures centralization and mobility without fore-going collective wisdom and experience.Co-ordinate with the Council in the piaiis the post of Social Director.

The body oiwomen now dedicating their endeavors tethe old task newly conceived is distin-guished. And the problems to be met area challenge calling for their best. TheCouncil is endeavoring to meet the challenge through pooling of knowledge andexperience, through co-ordination of effort.through co-operation with colleagues andwith students.

Fuller, '08, executive secretaryof the Alumni campaign since its start, leftrecently for Florida for his vacation, during which he was to confer with Maxi-milian Morgenthau, Jr., '99, and attendUniversity of Chicago meetings in six lead-ing Florida towns in the early part of themonth. In the far west, J. R. Harmon,starting out from Boise, Idaho, is makinga trip around the northwest in the courseof which he will work to promote theAlumni campaign in Spokane, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and SanDiego, and possibly in intermediate pointson the way between the towns mentioned.A renewal of activity in the medicaisection of the Alumni campaign was expected during January as a result of thereturn of Dr. Ralph Webster, Rush, '98,to take charge of that branch of the Development work. The Rush campaign, whichis a part of the $2,000,000 Alumni effort,is seeking to raise $250,000 for medicaiendowment. More than $190,000 has ai-ready been pledged. Citizens Campaign PlansWhile the Alumni are working on thefinal $200,000 in their share of the drive,the members or the committee on Development are rapidly formulating plans for thegeneral city campaign to be held in Chicagoto raise the remaining $10,500,000 neededto complete the $17,500,000 endowmentand building fund.The month of Aprii has been tentativelyset as the time during which the campaignwill be held. One of the first acts in theplanning of the general campaign was theformation of a citizens' committee to act inan advisory capacity with the Committeeon Development. Mr. Bernard E. Sunny,chairman of the board of the Illinois BellTelephone Company, is chairman of thecommittee, the membership of which includes many of the leading citizens ofChicago.The personnel of the committee, whichis being added to from time to time by Mr.Sunny, is at present as follows :W.

During theseearly years the cordial sympathy, interest,and encouragement of the great botanist,Dr. Asa Gray, was a source of inspirationto the editor. At the same time, the namesof many famous botanists of the day areappended to the published notes. Thus onefinds notes by Engelmann, Gray, Bessey,Vasey, Eaton, Beai, Chapman, Peck,Hooker, Sargent, Rusby, Barnes and manyothers, men who stamped the character ofAmerican botany in the last quarter of thenineteenth century.With the fourth volume the Gazette wasagain enlarged to 12 pages per issue, thetype increased in size, and covers wereadded to protect the text, and to providespace for advertising matter, which untilnow had not been admitted to the journal.Strong support gave a greater feeling ofstability and permanence, and the experi-mental stages were safely passed.At about this time the editor removed toWabash College, where for 12 years he wasprofessor of Biology. The Gazette wastaken with him, and published from Craw-fordsville, Indiana. In 1883, Dr. CharlesReid Barnes and Dr. J. C. Arthur wereassociated in the editorship, and in 1886 alithree were listed as editors, an arrangementwhich continued until 1900 at which timeDr. Arthur ceased his connection with thegroup. Barnes continued as one of theeditors until the time of his death in 1910,since which time Dr. Coulter has been soleeditor.During the decade of the '8o's, mor-phology sprang into prominence, as themore fundamental phylogenetic studies be-gan to be made, and reached a very highpiane during the succeeding fifteen years.At about the same time Barnes began towrite those keen, criticai summaries ofphysiological investigations, for which hewas noted. Later ecology and physiologyshared with morphology in the rapid development of botanical science.The Gazette was moved to Indiana University in 1892, to Lake Forest Universityin 1893, and to the University of Chicagoin 1896, when the editor became Professorand Head of the Department of Botany of Professor John M. Coulterthe University. Beginning with volume22, the printing has been done by the University of Chicago Press, and the BotanicalGazette has become a standard of excel-lence in content and form which no otherAmerican journal has been able to equal.Those who have known Dr. Coulteronly during his later years will find evi-dence in the early numbers of the BotanicalGazette of that breadth of view, soundnessof judgment, and plasticity of mind andideas which have been so characteristic inali of his writings and teaching. No situ-ation was allowed to become too rigid. Ifideas became too fixed in any field, ifbotany was anywhere in danger of becom-ing a pigeon-holed science, the situation wasalways loosened up by new work, or re-interpretation. How frequently his students have heard him discourse in this vein!The difference between his spirit, andthat of the taxonomists of these early daysis seen in the way unusual and non-typicalplants were regarded. The usuai taxono-mist wants his plants to be rigidly true totype, so that he can pigeon-hole them andlabel them. He would neglect and forgetthe unusual plants which transgress thearbitrary lines of types and species. Notso, this young editor-botanist.

Its plans,organization and enthusiastic conduct area notable achievement. Thatmany thousands of our Alumnicontributed, that the responsecarne from every group and class, that animpressive and timely sum was raised, aligive cause for justifiable pride and deepsatisfaction. But to many the most signifi-cant, the most laudable feature of theAlumni gift, as revealing the broad visionof our Alumni, lies in the fact that it wascontributed for general endowment pur-poses.In most financial campaigns, as is widelyrecognized, it is usually easier to catch theinterest and obtain wide-spread support forrather more definite purposes. Specificbuildings, memorial halls, clubs, or sta-diums and gymnasiums, objectives whichcan be designed and presented in somewhatconcrete fashion, seem to win attention andelicit assistance more easily. It is consider-ably more difficult, universal campaign experience has shown, to gain support for theless definite purposes of endowment. Endowment, as such, can not well be visual-ized ; its appeal sometimes appears evenvague ; its appreciation depends upon deeperinsight and wider understanding. It is,therefore, of special distinction that ourAlumni, in their first, great nation-wideeffort on behalf of the University, willinglyadopted and effectively carried through anaim, not for any immediately tangible pur-pose but for general endowment.Ali objectives for enhancing and strength- ening university activities and services, ofcourse, are greatly desirable, and alumnicontributions for any purpose relating tothe varied needs of an institution deservefull praise. But if alumni, as a body, couldbe interested only in some definite yet somewhat narrow appeal, such interest wouldnot necessarily or clearly reflect broadestappreciation or ideals as to higher education.Certainly, as evidenced by our own campaign, a limited interest can not be at-tributed to our Alumni. Every individuaigraduate or former student, undoubtedly,is more interested in one phase of University activity than in another. But, as abody, our Alumni have taken the highestpurpose, general endowment, in makingtheir outstanding contribution to the University. For that very significant purpose,as revealing the character of our Alumni,for that ideal, they deserve and have wonspecial distinction and commendation.T N this January number of the MagazineA appears a most interesting article on theJapan trip of the University of Chicago, . .

As the article setsforth, the 1925 journey is one of the seriesof five-year visits so successfully establishedbetween Chicago and Waseda and otherJapanese universities some years ago. OtherEVENTS AND COMMENT 123universities in America have sent teamsto the Orient occasionally, but Chicagoalone has established what has become afixed series, a regular international sportingevent. Baseball, indeed, as a popular gamein Japan, was started and built up byUniversity of Chicago coaches several de-cades ago.Every Chicago team that has crossed thePacific has made a successful record, notonly as to the games played but in themore important impressions of sportsman-ship and good-will. It has been said thatnow the Japanese people, as a nation, eager-ly look forward to the visit by the ChicagoMaroons. In the series of games recentlycompleted the largest crowds that ever at-tended baseball games in Japan greeted theChicago players at ali places visited on theisland; at Tokyo over 25,000 spectatorsattended some of the contests. The 1925Team has kept up Chicago's fine record inevery way, and ali are to be congratulatedon their excellent showing and spirit.Next spring Waseda, as customary, comesto America as Chicago's guest. Games arebeing arranged for them on this visit. Weknow that every courtesy will be extendedthem wherever they play, and that they willenjoy their trip to this country immensely.Chicago certainly will be proud and happyto welcome them in the same fine spirit inwhich they welcomed our representatives.Japan has taken to baseball with excep-tional success. Their style of game hasvastly improved, and their teams now knowthe game thoroughly and play it with ad-mirable skill.Aside from the interest in the Chicagoseries as athletic events, these periodic visitsacross the Pacific by Chicago and byJapanese teams are proving of deep signifi-cance. The young men of both countriesare not merely baseball players ; they are,truly, ambassadors extraordinary of goodwill and friendly international relations.In this far larger field of kindly and friendlyrelationships they render a rare service, aservice that can be rendered so well in noother way; as such it deserves highest com-mendation and steady encouragement. IT HAS been characteristic of the University from its very beginning to en-deavor to afford educational opportunitiesas widely as possible. The de-x en mg vei0pment 0f co-education, theEducation . . . r ^l r\ einstitution of the Quarter System with its flexibility and allowance offull work during the summer, the HomeStudy Department — ali are notable ex-amples of the University's aim to affordeducation on as wide a scale as practicalcircumstances might permit. In line withthis endeavor the University has now addedRadio addresses and Public Lectures. TheChicago Daily News comments appreci-atively on these latest educational functionsas f ollows :"President Mason of the University ofChicago is one of the educators who believethat the functions of an institution ofhigher learning are not limited to thetraining of its registered students. Re-peatedly he has emphasized the duty ofscientific research as well as the duty ofcarrying truth and knowledge to the general public, to co-operate with other agenciesin making democracy safe and efficient."In a stimulating address broadcast recently by the radio station of The DailyNews, Dr. Mason set forth the aims ofthe University in the direction of populareducation. It is gratifying to tens of thous-ands of thoughtful men and women tolearn that extension work, lectures andradio addresses are to be utilized by theUniversity to an unprecedented extent.Moreover, the lectures are to be co-ordi-nated and systematized, and are to be given,not sporadically or in a haphazard way, butin series."Questions of current and vital interest— locai, state, national and international —are to be treated in radio addresses bymembers of the University faculty."The carrying out of these plans willserve spiritual and cultural as well aspractical purposes. To their mutuai benefit Chicago and the University will bebrought into closer relations. The University will be "peopleized," while the publicwill be enrolled, as it were, among its students."ALUMNI AFFAI RSIndianapolis Club MeetingTHE Indianapolis Alumni Club of theUniversity of Chicago held its De-cember meeting on Saturday December 12.The second Saturday of each month willfind the Indianapolis Club holding itsmonthly noon luncheon at the ColumbiaClub.

In spite ofchanging the date of our meeting, and theapproaching holidays, we had in attendanceabout 90, and spent a most enjoyable andprofitable evening with our new Presidentat the City Club rooms, Monday evening,December I4th.After a preliminary meeting with a groupof Rush Medicai Alumni, Dr. Mason spoketo us in his characteristic, sincere manner,interspersed with whimsical humor, aboutsome of the problems the University Administration is facing and the splendid progress which is being made in the Development Campaign, in the actual constructionof new buildings, with reference to cor-relating the work of the West Side MedicaiSchools with the South Side. We wereespecially glad to have Max Mason's viewson inter-collegiate football, and his wholeconception of higher education at Chicagomet with sympathetic response from hislisteners.Enough time was taken before the meeting closed, to affect a change in administration of our locai organization, so that RudyMatthews, '14, was succeeded by Donald Bradford, '17, as President of the Club, andK. A. Hauser, A. M. '19, by HaroldWalker, '20, as Secretary, the thought beingthat it was a good policy to pass around theresponsibility and honor, at least every twoyear.As Rush Medicai is now an actual partof our University, the Locai Rush Alumniare identified with us and represented byDr. Ernest W. Miller, '05, M. D. '07,as Vice President in our organization. Itwas also thought advisable to create theoffice of treasurer, as we have been ona "hand to mouth" basis, with a deficitafter every gathering, so that Edith Math-eny, '05, of Milwaukee Downer College,was elected Treasurer.Please take note of these changes.

As to newcomers in a city, espe-cially of this size, it is impossible for theSecretary to notify them of our affairs un-less they report their addresses to the Secretary immediately. The Secretary's namemay readily be secured from the ChicagoAlumni office, or from the Magazine.As to the character of the meetings, it isimpossible to make them interesting if theSecretary has no co-operation from thoseattending. We have one of the most cap-able, active Alumni Club presidents in thecountry, Rudy Matthews, '14, one famedin the history of Chicago Cheer Leaders asa rrian who could rouse the whole west standat games. We have had most interestingand prominent speakers, men with realmessages, among them our late lamentedPresident Burton, A. A. Stagg, Dean HenryGordan Gale and Dean "Teddy" Linn.Yet the attendance at ali these affairs wasjust about fifty per cent, sometimes less,of those circularized by card. Often it is necessary to add a slight charge to the costper person (in the absence of dues) to coverthe cost of such items as printing, postage,tips, and transportation of the speaker.May I also add that attendance at thesemeetings should be sufficient introduction,and would help to make the meetings moreinteresting to everyone? Isn't it up to theAlumni themselves what they shall have intheir Alumni Clubs? Three or four hard-working officers cannot do what you do notdo for yourself ! When you go to a town,do as Harold Walker, '20, did recently —report to the Secretary promptly. Also,take active interest — enter at once into thespirit of every occasion !The Milwaukee Alumni Club is antici-pating, with great pleasure, the next meeting, at which time we expect to have thevery great honor of entertaining our newPresident, Max Mason.

He says his pul-monary T. B. is almost gone — cured. Hereis hoping !I was back visiting in D-2 last night andtalked to the chief nurse there. She saysthat never in her career has she known abetter sport than 'Dolly.' He was terriblysick, expected to die, yet was patient, considerate of others and very appreciative ofeverything done for him. She said if hewere as good a sport in football as he isnow, he was All-American. Everybodyhere in these officer wards knows his football record though they don't know himpersonali}'. He is now in Upper East,surgical.Wish you could see that western sky-lineas we have seen it for the past two months— the mountains covered with snow andfairly glittering in the sun. Have gone outrabbit hunting several times about thirtymiles east of here, and from there Pike's andLong's peaks tower above the rest of therange. It's astonishing how well one cansee out here. I never get used to it.I had expected to be in Atlanta beforethis, in fact another patient and I hadplanned to see the Wisconsin game, but Istarted in on a course of radium treatmentand changed my mind.

Director Charles Hub-bard Judd, of the School of Education,discussed the subject on the evening ofDecember 7.The outcome of scientific studies ofeducation is a complete transformation inthe way in which schools are conducted,according to leading educational authorities.There has never been a method of continu-ous aggressive improvement such as is nowsupplied by the science of education. Thisscience is peculiarly American. Americahas been the home of free experimentation,and there has never been a time when far-reaching changes were in progress in anysuch measure as they are at present. Inthis illustrated lecture Director Juddshowed how science helps in the solution ofmany important school problems.128UNIVERSITY NOTES 129RADIO PROGRAMMoat of the University radio lectures will bebroadcast from Mitchell Tower studio, through theChicago Daily News station, WMAQ, Wave length— 447.5 meters.

InShanghai, China, Madras, India, andChicago this edition, Edgar J. Goodspeed's"American Translation," is being publishedas the "Tyndale Memorial Edition" incommemoration of the man who first trans- lated the New Testament into English fromthe Greek just four hundred years ago.In a special preface for this edition Dr.Goodspeed writes that "in a day whenEnglish was not thought good enough forthe New Testament William Tyndale didnot hesitate to translate it into the commonspeech. In a day when it was thought thecommon people could not use the New Testament in their own tongue, he perceivedit to be their greatest need. His terse andvivid diction molded the beginnings ofmodem English literature and stili lives innine-tenths of the King James New Testament and its revisions."The modem translator, in particular,looks to him as the founder of a great move-ment, not yet ended, to put the message ofthe New Testament into the commonspeech, and seeks to carry on his task."130 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEHelen Culver Will Bequeathes$600,000 to UniversityDEVELOPMENTS that will mark anew step in the furthering of theUniversity biological school are beingplanned as a result of a gift amounting to$600,000 bequeathed to the University bythe late Miss Helen Culver, a Lake Forestphilanthropist. This bequest is the largestof a series of such gifts willed by her toeight educational and charitable institutionsthroughout the United States and disposesof over a third of a $1,500,000 estate.As a result of this the departments ofPhysiology, Zoology, Botany, PhysiologicalChemistry, and Anatomy will adopt a newpian of development.In a statement issued by the Universityit was pointed out that the bequest "doesnot apply to the $17,500,000 developmentprogram." The funds will, however, playan important part in "connection with theUniversity's development of medicai research and instruction."This bequest is not the first of MissCulver's gifts. It will be added to a"Helen Culver fund" which amounts tomore than one million dollars. It was fromthe proceeds of this fund that the four biological laboratories dedicated to the memoryof Charles J. Hull, trustee in the old University, were erected.Miss Culver, one of the University'sbenefactors, voiced a philanthropic spirit atthe time of the dedication of the buildingson Hull Court. It was her wish "to aidthose lovers of truth, who in ali generationsand from ali ranks give their years to thesearch for truth and especially those formsof inquiry which explore the Creator's willas expressed in the laws of life and as ameans of rendering lives more sound andwholesome. I have believed," she said,"that moral evils would grow less as theknowledge of their relation to physical lifeprevailed and that science, which is know-ing the truth, is a foundation of truereligion."Miss Culver died last August at herhome in Lake Forest although her will wasrìled at a winter home in Sarasota, Florida. She was 93 years old. She is well knowas one of the nation's pioneer women sulfragists and as the founder of Chicago'greatest settlement — Hull House.Ryerson Collection of BaconManuscriptsTHE RECENT exhibition in the booldepartment of Marshall Field & Company, Chicago, of the Ryerson collection oiBacon manuscripts, in the possession of theUniversity of Chicago, has again called at-tention to the high value of the documentsfor the study of the social and economiehistory of the Middle Ages.Between 1540 and 1550 Sir NicholasBacon, of the famous family that gave theworld Francis Bacon, statesman and phil-osopher, started his collection of manuscripts when by the favor of Henry VIIIhe acquired several estates formerly ownedby monasteries. With the estates carnecharters, manor rolls, court rolls, and otherdocuments belonging to the estates.This remarkable collection of some 2,600documents, ranging from about 1160 downto 1727, was recently purchased for theUniversity by Martin A. Ryerson, formerpresident of its Board of Trustees, after theunique value of the manuscripts had beendiscerned by Professor John M. Manlyand Professor Charles R. Baskervill, of theDepartment of English.The court rolls from 1260 to 17 IO,almost without break, were found withthe collection in forty-six tin boxes at Red-grave Manor, England, the home of theeldest son of Sir Nicholas, who was createdBaronet of Redgrave in 161 1. The collection also includes deeds from the reign ofpractically every English king from 1160to 1685.Among other things of peculiar interestthat have been found by University of Chicago scholars in the personal papers of theBacon family are bills from tradespeople in1596 to Sir Nicholas Bacon, totaling about$ 100,000 (at the present money value) andlisting articles of the trousseau for his twodaughters, Mistress Doli and MistressJeminah.UNIVERSITY NOTES '3'Wider Field for University CollegeTHE ANNOUNCEMENT at theUniversity that its downtown depart-ment, University College, has registered2,400 students for this quarter, shows thegrowing importance of its work.

The Botannical Gazette(Continued from page 121)Harvard Herbarium received a 4-partedspecimen of Lixlium philadelphicum, withtypical dicotyledonous arrangement insteadof the 3-parted arrangement of monocoty-ledons to which the lily belongs, he says;"Such monstrosities, overleaping the arbi-trary barriers of the systematists, are usefulto show that Nature does not run bound-ing walls and insurmountable barriers evenbetween her types." How characteristichas been that attitude throughout his careeras investigator, editor, and teacher!The Botanical Gazette, now in itseightieth volume, is a splendid achievementin itself, worthy to be considered an im-perishable monument to the genius of itseditor and founder. Although Dr. Coulteris leaving the University of Chicago, he isnot relinquishing the editorship of the Gazette immediately, but will continue for atime his interest in the work which hasbeen nearest his heart ali these years. Wehope that the Botanical Gazette shall goon indefinitely as a living and growing re-minder of the magnificent service itsfounder has rendered to botanical science,and to human welfare, by stimulating thesearch for truth regarding the life of ourplant companions. Long may it continueto lead in the great science which it serves!Professor Scott Tells of Globe-TrottingON his return, during the SummerQuarter, from a trip around theworld, which included big game hunting inAfrica, Professor Arthur P. ("Artie")Scott, Ph.D. '16, had the following to sayabout some of his experiences :"The tired business man envies the professor his vacations, if not much else; andan added advantage of our flexible fourquarter system is the possibility of accumu-lating vacation. In 1924, thanks to teach-ing summers, I had twelve months to mycredit, and I was wondering how best touse it. In 1921-22 Mr. and Mrs. HerbertBradley had gone with Cari Akeley toAfrica, and they were planning to returnto visit new portions of the Congo. WhenUNIVERSITY NOTES 133the opportunity carne of joining them, Mr.Bigelow and I very gladly took it. Thereports brought back by Fay Cooper Cole,as to the Dutch East Indies, were so attractive that we decided to visit Sumatra also,and gradually we planned a trip that finallytook us around the world."Leaving London in July, 1924, we sailedto Mombasa on the African East Coast,and from there we made our way by train,boat and motor truck across Kenya Colonyand Uganda. At Fort Portai we organizedour "safari" for the march west and souththrough the eastern parts of the BelgianCongo. For three months and more wetramped through the Ituri Forest andamong the mountains west of Lake Edward,in which latter section we were the firstwhite party to go after the military occu-pation only a few months before. On theway we stopped at times to hunt and to takemoving pictures. By way of Ruchuru andLake Kivu we reached Usumburu, on LakeTanganyika, returning to the East Coast byrail across the former German East Africato Dar-es-Salaam. Then we sailed to Indiafor a few weeks as ordinary tourists, andthen by way of Calcutta, Rangoon andPenang reached Sumatra, where we spenta month, crossing the island by motor car.Then by way of Java and Singapore toSaigon for a month in French Indo-China. Then we had just time to get a ship fromHongkong to Vancouver, reaching Chicagojust before the summer quarter opened."Simply as a vacation, it was a wonder-ful trip. As a strictly inexperienced andamateur hunter, I naturally enjoyed theopportunity to shoot elephants, buffaloes,lions and other game in Africa, and tigers inIndo-China. But I am sure also that thetrip will prove useful to me in my teaching,which centers around the modem movementof the expansion of Europe. We saw atdose range the colonial administration oftropical areas by the British, Belgians,Dutch, and French. Time, of course, dìdnot allow us to make any intensive or tech-nical study, but a great mass of generalimpressions remains, and a vivid backgroundfor further study. Now when I lecture orread about tropical trade, for instance, Ican see it not only in terms of columns offìgures, but I can visualize it as the outflowof the miles of plantations of coffee and cot-ton and sugar cane and tea and tobacco andrubber and cloves and cinnamon throughwhich I passed, produced by the kind oflaborers whose faces and costumes and vil-lages I remember so clearly, supervised bysuch Europeans as those who asked us totea and talked with us about their dailyproblems." m0kmmProfessor Scott and the "Tusker" he shotNEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESMitchell Tower CornerTHE successful production of A.Milne's "Mr. Pim Passes By" wasthe outstanding event of the activ-ities of the Dramatic Association during thepast quarter. The quarter has been a busyone and has testified to the success of thenewly-adopted policy of the Joint Board ofthe Association. The board, which hasbeen meeting frequently, is composed of thepresidents and vice-presidents, or businessmanagers, of Gargoyles, Tower Players,and Mirror.

He was attending a locaitheatre near the University with his wifeand fell suddenly ili while on his way home.The announcement of his death was deeplyfelt by many Chicagoans, and particularlyby the hundreds of Chicago athletes who inhis many years of faithful service had comeunder his attention and care.Nicolai B. Johnson ("Johnny" was anick-name) was born August io, 1873, ina small Wisconsin town. After attendinga Physical Education School, and someyears of experience, he joined the staff ofthe Athletic Department at the Universityof Chicago in 1905, and continued with thatdepartment ever since, except for about twoyears of war work. In recent years hisofficiai position has been that of GeneralAssistant to Director Stagg.During the World' War he was com-missioned as First Lieutenant in the U. S.Air Service, his duties being to train menfor that difficult branch of the army. Hesaw many months of service at HazelhurstField, Mineola, Long Island, and later atthe Flying School, Southern Field, Ameri-cus, Georgia. For some time after theWar he aided in Physical Reconstructionwork at the Walter Reed General ArmyHospital, Washington, D. C.On August 30, 1913, Mr. Johnson wasmarried to May G. Bullock, of Chicago.For many years at the Annual "C"Dinners and on ali other sports occasionsfor gatherings of Alumni he was a widely-known and popular figure. The development, sportsmanship and general success of Chicago teams was always a matter of greatpride to "Johnny." After examining athletic departments at many universities, colleges, schools and clubs throughout thecountry, he maintained that he "had yetto see an institution that has a better athletic department than Chicago's." Alwaysstaunchly loyal to the Old Man and to theUniversity, he worked steadily for improve-ment in the care of Chicago men.His departure takes a prominent, helpfulfigure from the Quadrangles, a man whohas long won the admiration of many forhis intense loyalty to the Maroon.Some Athletic SchedulesBASKETBALLJan. 9 — Iowa.lan. 16 — Wisconsin at Madison,Jan. 20— Purdue.Jan. 23— Illinois.Jan. 27 — Minneapolis at Minnesota.Jan. 30— Ohio State.Feb. 6 — Ohio State at Columbus.Feb. 13 — Wisconsin.Feb. 17 — Purdue at Lafayette.Feb. 22 — Illinois at Champaign.Feb. 27 — Iowa at Iowa City.March 3 — Minnesota.SWIMMINGJan. 16 — Indiana at Chicago.Jan. 23 — Chicago at Michigan.Feb. 6 — Chicago at Iowa.Feb. 13 — Chicago at Minnesota.Feb. 19 — Chicago at Wisconsin.Feb. 27— Purdue at Chicago.March 6 — Illinois at Chicago.March 11, 12 — Conference meet.BASEBALLAprii 14 — Chicago at Northwestern.Aprii 17 — Chicago at Butler.Aprii 20 — Chicago at Purdue.Aprii 24 — Chicago at Iowa.May 1 — Wisconsin at Chicago.May 5 — Illinois at Chicago.May 12 — Northwestern at Chicago.May 15 — Waseda at Chicago.May 17 — Waseda at Chicago.May 19 — Waseda at Chicago.May 22 — Purdue at Chicago.May 24 — Iowa at Chicago.May 26 — Chicago at Illinois.May 29 — Chicago at Ohio State.June 5 — Chicago at Wisconsin.June 9 — Ohio State at Chicago.June 10 — Alumni at Chicago.135^ <P^ <F^ Cr^ (PI (}^ u^ Cr^ CF^ (^ Cp^ (ì^ u^ lp^C 3C COMMERCE AND ADMINISTRATION ì^^<^^^^^<^^^^^^^^^<^^^^^^<^^^^^^<^<^xC. and A. School AimsTHERE are in the world about a billionseven hundred million people. Thesepeople must be fed, elothed, housed, amused,and furnished with innumerable otherthings which satisfy human wants. Thetask of providing these things, which is byno means a simple one, is the task of modembusiness. This is but another way of say-ing that business is a pecuniarily organizedscheme for gratifying human wants, andproperly understood falls little short of being as broad and as inclusive as life itself,in its motives, aspirations, and social obli-gations.Bearing in mind this general definitionof business there are certain propositionswhich seem perfectly clear. ( i ) The hap-piness and well being of the human familydepend upon how wisely and efEcientlymodem business performs its task. (2) Theefficiency and wisdom of business in the performance of its task depend upon the training of those who make up the business organization of society. (3) There has been,is, and must be training of men who areto take their place in business. (4) Thetask of training for the role of an admin-istrator is no simple one, and the trainingnecessary must have breadth and depth com-parable with those of the task.The School of Commerce and Administration, with some awareness of the impor-tance and largeness of the task, has at-tempted year in and year out, in the organization and development of its curriculum,in the preparation of teaching materials, inthe selection and training of instructors,and in the presentation of courses, to trainmen not merely for routine positions, — cer-tainly not to train mere money makers, —but to train men with vision for leadershipin the tremendous task of efEciently coordi-nating social agents and wisely utilizingsocial energies in making available thosethings which satisfy human wants, upon which the happiness of the human familyrests.In striving for this important objective,the school has kept definitely in mind certain aims and ideals. ( I ) It believes in anindividualized curriculum for each studentrather than a rigid course of study forgroups of students. Apart from the coursesrequired of ali to make certain that everystudent secures an appreciation of the physical and social environment in which business is carried on, an understanding of thebasic functions of business, each student'sprogram of work is a matter of personaladjustment on the basis of previous training,present aptitudes, and probably future occu-pation. (2) It believes in keeping with theindividualization of the curriculum an efforthas been made for several years, throughthe "Invitation Section" as well as by otherdevices, to provide for each student accord-ing to his ability. Plans are now beingformulated to provide more adequately, notmerely for excellent students, but for students who demonstrate ability and willing-ness to do creative work. ( 5 ) Along withthe policy of giving- to each according tohis ability goes the policy of expecting fromeach results commensurate with this ability.(6) It assumes that there are certain fun-damental principles of administration under-hring ali business activities and seeks byappropriate courses to give its students anappreciation of those fundamental principles.

M., at Rauscher's Restaurant, Washington, D. C. The speakers will be ProfessorH. G. Moulton, Director of the Instituteof Economics at Washington, a graduateof the University and a former member ofthe faculty, Professor George S. Counts ofYale University, and Professor W. W.Charters and Dr. Judd of the School ofEducation. Tickets for the dinner, at $3.00each, may be secured in advance from W. S.Gray, Dean of the College of Education.A Study of Heredity and EnvironmentA study which is being conducted by Mr.Freeman under a grant from the Commonwealth Fund is described by him as f ollows :"For more than a generation there hasbeen strenuous controversy about the relation between heredity and environment asfactors in the individuala mental development. Previous to the work of FrancisGalton the opinion pretty generally pre-vailed which was expressed by John Locke,'I think I may say, that of ali the Men wemeet with, nine Parts of ten are what theyare, good or evil, useful or not, by theirEducation.' In 1869 Galton published hisHereditary Genius and in 1883 his Inquiriesinto the Human Faculty and Its Development, in which he reported on the relation-ships between eminent men and on themental similarities of twins. He maintain-ed that inheritance is the dominant factorin mental development. He thus raisedan issue which is not yet settled."The widespread use of mental tests hasserved to sharpen the issue and at the sametime to provide an instrument which may beused in settling it. The revelations of thearmy tests concerning the large differencesin the mental achievement of men of dif- ferent race, occupation, or residence haverenewed the debate on the cause of thesedifferences. For the test scores themselvesdo not reveal the cause. In order to dis-entangle the two factors we must fìnd andcompare persons whose heredity is known tobe similar but whose environment is dif-ferent, or, on the other hand, whose environment is similar but whose heredity isdifferent."It seemed likely that we might be ableto make this comparison in the case offoster children. Suppose we could fìndfamilies of foster children, some of whomhad been taken into superior homes andsome into homes of more limited advan-tages. If we had a sufficient number, wecould assume that children of the same family had, on the average, the same nativecapacity. If then a difference were foundbetween these two groups of children itcould be ascribed to the difference in theirenvironment. Again, suppose we could fìndfoster children in the same home with naturai children. The environment here issimilar and a difference could be ascribedto heredity."This, in general, is the problem of studywhich is now about half completed. Thesimple conditions which are outlined in thepreceding paragraphs are not very com-monly found. We are studying ali thechildren whom we can fìnd conforming tothese conditions and are supplementingthem by others who furnish a somewhat lessdirect comparison. For example, somechildren are adopted into homes where thecultural and educational advantages maybe described as average or less. Others areadopted into homes of distinctly superiorrefìnement. We can compare the mentaldevelopment of these two groups. Thusfar our supply of very superior foster homesis limited and we hope to extend our studyof this type. Again, some of the children137i38 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEwere given mental tests at the time of a-doption several years ago. We can determine whether an improvement in theirenvironment has raised their general in-tellectual level."The question is one of direct importanceto parents who pian to adopt children aswell as to society in general. We havealready met with instances of extreme de-ficiency which good environment has notbeen able to cure. Our tabulation of datahas not yet gone far enough, however, toindicate whether lesser degrees of deficiencycan be overcome by favorable environment. This particular project will be com-pleted next summer. Our hope is that it«ili make some contribution to the solutionof the problem and point the way to a stilimore extensive and definite attack upon it."Faculty NotesMr. Lyman addressed the New EnglandAssociation of Teachers of English in Springfield, Massachusetts, on December 5, on thetopic, "Reforms Needed ir. the Teaching ofEnglish in the Secondary Schools."George S.

Norgren, '14.C BOOK REVIEWS lElmer E. Ellsworth and the Zouavesof '6iBy Charles A. Ingraham. (University ofChicago Press).IF THIS book were not a serious historicalwork issued under the protecting wing ofthe Chicago Historical Society, one would betempted to cali it one of the best of the CivilWar romances. Ali the elements which madeup the 1860 idea of romance are in it: a blightedlove affair, struggles with poveity, marvellousidealism, beauty of moral character, war anddashing uniforms, and finally the death of amartyr and hero at the romantic age oftwenty-four.But the book is a bit of research which muchneeded to be done. Colonel Elmer E. Ellsworth was one of that patriotic triad of CivilWar martyrs, John Brown, Ellsworth, andAbraham Lincoln. During the period of hisgreatest activity and immediately after his death,his fame probably rivalled that of the Presidenthimself. In view of the vividness of his career,it is surprising that until now, more than sixtyyears after his death, there has never been anadequate biography of him. Lest Ellsworth'slife story be permitted to lapse from the memoryof the American people, Mr. Ingraham haswritten a biography based upon originaisources, and personal contacts with the ColonePsfather, and with a sister of Ellsworth's fiancee.Ellsworth appears as a handsome hero of theEsmond type, wholesome, full of the highest ofsentiments, Constant to his love, and opposedto ali profane language and looseness of character. Military genius characterizes him fromhis early days, as the village tailor's son. Thenas he grows older, and moves on to Chicago,his love for Carrie Spafford turns him to themore dignified paths of the law, where helanguishes. The military taste will out, andthough he reads Blackstone, lives on crackers,and sleeps on the floor, he is led irresistibly tothe field where his genius lay — military activity.In the meantime his love for Miss Spaffordis kept alive by the ardent letters which furnishMr. Ingraham with much of his material. Theletters are documents of unusual human interest,and in them are exhibited, not, perhaps, Ellsworth's true personality, but at least his ideals.They are in the exalted, verbose style of theperiod. In them appear high sentiments andtenderness, a most refined sense of honor, andthe sort of chivalry which exalts the object oflove. The point which marked Ellsworth's finaland inevitable turn to the military was his ac-quaintance through Charles Villiers with theZouave system, which the French had dexivedfrom a mountain tribe of Algeria. Villiershad been a surgeon with the French Zouaves,Charles A. Ingrahamand he was able to give Ellsworth much in-formation about them. In addition, Ellsworthimported some books from France. The system,thus learned, together with the high moral codewith which Ellsworth inspired his men, wasresponsible for the remarkable success of thecompany of Zouave cadets which he organizedin Chicago.This company became famous throughout thecountry. It was imitated everywhere. Thetour of the country which Ellsworth and hisZouaves made in 1860 became a triumphantprocession. In the meantime, Ellsworth re-mained poor though famous and was getting nonearer to the attainment of his desire to marryMiss Spafford.Active participation in the campaign to electLincoln marked a temporary return to the law.When Lincoln was elected, Ellsworth was onthe threshold of security. Lincoln searchedabout for a position which could be given himwithout creating too many enemies. Then thewar carne along, and Ellsworth, going to NewYork immediately, recruited the famous regi-ment of Fire Zouaves. Moving on to Washington he became the hero of the day. He ledhis men to Alexandria, where occured his tragicdeath which cut short a career which wouldundoubtedly have equaled those of the greatCivil War Ieaders.It is a colorful and unusual life story thatMr. Ingraham's research has reconstructed.Harry BinghamH3OFFICERS OF THE UNIVERSITY OFCHICAGO ALUMNI CLUBSAmes, Ia.

Lively, A.M., '14, D.B., '14, isrejoicing in the completion and dedication of asplendid new church building for the FirstBaptist Church of Mattoon, Illinois, of whichhe is pastor. The new building is of the tempiestyle, with stone pillars in front. It is builtof dark glazed brick and trimmed in Bedfordlime stone. The auditorium, galleries and siderooms will seat about eight hundred. Thereis a ten foot basement under the entire buildingto care for a Sunday School of one thousand.On dedication day 517 were present in theSunday School.The achievement of the Baptist Church inMattoon is the more remarkable in view of thefact that for more than flfty years previous toMr. Lively's entrance upon the pastorate theBaptist people had been marked by dissension,discord and humiliation. In that time therehad been four distinct Baptist churches inMattoon hearing six different names.In his more than nine years in Mattoon, PastorLively has seen the following developments:The Sunday School grow from less than onehundred to over four hundred (from seventh tosecond place in the city as to size) ; the churchmembership from two hundred to five hunderd;the property value of the church grow from$5000 to $75,000; and the pastor's salary hasbeen doubled. One very gratifying feature inconnection with the dedication services was thatthe first person to be baptized in the beautifulnew baptistry was the pastor's eldest son andnamesake, James Lively, Jr.Since leaving the Divinity School, PastorLively has built three buildings; Bourbon, GrantPark Chapel and the First Church in Mattoon.Louis J. Velte, was installed as pastor of theRutherford, New York, Baptist Church onOctober second. Mr. Velte was for about threeyears the successful pastor of the Merriam ParkBaptist Church, St. Paul, Minnesota and resign-ed from that church in order to accept the calito Rutherford.Fred W. Field has led the First BaptistChurch of DeKalb, Illinois, in a thorough re-construction of the church building at a costof $65,000. The Church is now one of the mostadequately equipped Baptist churches for wor-ship and religious education and communityservice to be found in the state of Illinois.
