McCracken, Jr. '09, J. D. '11,as Assistant Secretary of Commercein charge of civil aviation, and David Wallace Stewart, J. D. *I7, to fill the unexpiredsenatorial term of the late Albert B. Cummins, have brought new distinction to theLaw School and to the University."Bill" McCracken is one of the bestknown alumni of the Law School, havingreceived almost every college and alumnihonor on the list and having kept himselfin the foreground ofhis profession almostsince his graduation.He is the son of Doctors William P. McCracken and MaryElizabeth Avery McCracken. He was graduated from UniversityHigh School in 1905,from the College in1909, and from theLaw School in 191 1.In September of 1918,he married Miss SallyLucille Lewis ofWaco, Texas. "Bill"is a member of the PsiUpsilon and Phi DeltaPhi Fraternities.McCracken's publiccareer has been brilliant. During the warhe served for two yearsin the aviation service,first as a student andlater as an officer and instructor at Houstonand Waco, Texas. After the war heplunged into a career of public service.In 1923 he was made assistant to theAttorney General of Illinois in specialcharge of graft cases, and was later assigned to the same work as Assistant State'sAttorney for Cook County. He kept up anactive interest in the field of aeronautics. being successively chairman of the Aeronautical Congress, Governor-at-Large andchairman of the Legislative committee ofthe National Aeronautical Association, andchairman of the American Bar Association'scommittee on the law of aeronautics. Atthe same time he has been active in thelegal profession, being a prominent memberof the Chicago and Illinois Bar Associations and, a year ago, receiving the signalhonor of being elected Secretary of theAmerican Bar Association,The appointmentwas made by President Coolidge and wasendorsed by Secretary Hoover, SenatorDeneen, and Congressman Madden. Thenewspapers throughout the country heralded the appointment asa forward step for thefield of civil aviationand heartily approvedthe selection of Mr.McCracken as the firstincumbent of the office.THStaDavid Wallace Stewart, Senator-electfrom Iowa filling the unexpired termof the late Senator Albert B. Cummins. E RepublicanState Conventionof Iowa met on August7, 1926 to appoint asuccessor for the lateSenator Albert B.Cummins. With thecompletion of the thirdballot, David W.Stewart, J. D. '17, was chosen by an overwhelming plurality to fill that place.Stewart was a "dark horse" at the startof the balloting, but the spirited support ofhis own delegation and his statewide popularity brought him the nomination. TheDemocrats declined to appoint a candidatein opposition to Stewart, thereby automatically assuring him of his eventual election.9THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE"Dave" Stewart is the youngest manever nominated for the senate from the stateof Iowa. He was born in New Concord,Ohio, January 2, 1887. His parents, Mr.and Mrs. Wilson Stewart, provided a highschool education for him and then "put himon his own." He elected to go to GenevaCollege in Pennsylvania. He worked hisway through school, graduating with anA. B. degree in 191 1. Stewart was amember of the strongest football team everturned out at Geneva, the team that wonthe state championship and put littleGeneva College on the map. Later hecame to Chicago for his legal educationand received the J. D. degree in 1917.During the \var, Stewart served in themarine corps as a "top kick." After thewar he returned to Sioux City, Iowa, wherehe had been teaching in a local high schooland coaching the football team. Heestablished himself in the practice of lawand entered vigorously into the civic life of the city and the state. He is a memberof the law firm of Kindig, Stewart, andHatfield, president of the Chamber of Commerce of Sioux City, and an active leaderin American Legion activities.Stewart's qualities of leadership andforceful character have made their impresson the people of his state. In response to aletter of congratulation from the AlumniOffice, Mr. Stewart said :"I have a full sense of the responsibilitieswhich accompany this great honor, and it ismy hope and prayer that I shall proveworthy of this trust."It is such a spirit and attitude that haswon the hearts of the Iowa people to thisalumnus of our University. Mr. Stewartis the second Chicago graduate to wear thesenatorial toga. The first to receive thehonor was Arthur R.

McCracken, Jr., on the left, in conference with Secretary Hooverand Assistant Secretary of Commerce Walter Drake.The Mexican SituationA report on the meetings of the Institute of Politics under the Harris Foundationwhich met June 29 to July 15, 1926. The analysis of the political, social, andreligious life of Mexico is of especial interest in the light of events which have sincetranspired in the civic life of our Latin neighbor.THE annual meeting of the Instituteof Politics under the Harris Foundation convened at the Universityfrom June 29th to July 15th. TheInstitute undertook a study of currentMexican problems, seeking out their immediate causes and delving far back intothe racial, geographical, and historicalbackground of these people in search ofbasic factors which are efifective in theircurrent national life.At the time the Institute was in session, the casual American observer wasof a mind that Mexican affairs were morethan ordinarily stable. Internal difficultiesof the nation, which had for years beenmonopolizing the headlines of the Americanpress, had been conspicuously absent overa period of several months. It is interesting that a large part of the emphasis ofthe lecturers during these three weeks wasplaced upon the religious problems of thesepeople. For it was but a period of a fewdays from the adjournment of the Instituteto the issuing of the religious edicts by theCalles Government and the subsequent revival of the turmoil in the civic affairs ofthe nation.The lecturers at these meetings wereProfessor Herbert I. Priestly, Universityof California, historian and student ofMexican affairs ; Jose Vasconcelos, formersecretary of education in Mexico; ManuelGamio, Mexican sub-secretary of education ; and Moises Saenz, also a sub-secretaryin the Mexican department of education.Senor Gamio, unfortunately, was ill andwas unable to deliver his lectures in person.Professor Quincy Wright of the University, secretary of the Harris Foundation,read the lectures prepared by Senor Gamio.These men presented Mexico as a statebaffled by her geography and victimized by a forced mixture of two races peculiarlyincompatible in their makeup. Senor Vasconcelos pointed out in some detail the geographic hindrances to satisfactory development. The major part of the country, theentire west with the exception of a narrowstrip on the inaccessible coast and a largesection of the central and southern regions,is mountainous. Great areas are coveredwith tropical growth that is an almost unexplored jungle and other great sections inthe north and central parts are arid desertland. Such a geography greatly multipliesthe difficulties in the way of modern transportation and communication, the two life-giving arteries of modern civilization. Sucha geography is also fatal to the proper development of agricultural pursuits on anylarge scale. Senor Vasconcelos declaredthat so long as Mexico had her gold and hersilver she was supreme in North America,but when her precious metals found theirway into the hands of thrifty Americanfarmers and producers, Mexico's day ofglory passed. An age of production and anage of iron came to overshadow the age ofgold, and with it the wealth of Mexicowent glimmering.The consensus of the conference seemedto point to the racial background and itsproblems as the primary basis of the retarded development of Mexico. ManuelGamio, whose paper was read before theconference, is one of Mexico's eminentanthropologists. In his discussion SenorGamio pointed out that the ancient Mexican had attained a high degree of culture.His pagan religion was a thing of greatbeauty which gave rise to aesthetic expression of a most advanced nature. Thescience of ethics was, with him, a 'welladvanced study, taking the form of a constant plea for moderation and temperance.12 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThere were four hundred gods in the Aztec Olympus who represented variousforms of temperance.The Spanish conception of conquest wasTypical street scene in the public park inVera Cruz. (From the Harris Foundation collection.)in exact variance to the Anglo-Saxon conception. The Anglo-Saxon first conqueredthen pushed to one side their peoples. TheSpanish felt that true conquest was notcomplete until the conquered nation hadbeen assimilated by the conqueror. To thisend the fanatic apostle lent himself to thetask of destroying the mystic religion whichhe found, and the soldier gave himself tothe destruction of the symbols and evidencesof a native civilization, lest their emotionalpower revive a conquered spirit and createrevolution."Immediately upon the military downfall of the Indian came his economic ruin,"Senor Gamio stated. "His lands and allvaluable possessions passed into the handsof the invader, and he himself became theservant of his conqueror, obliged to work inhis mines or estates and to pay him tribute.With the Indian effectively subjugated, theSpaniard thought it would be an easy taskto blot out the remains of his autochthonousculture and substitute the civilization imported from Spain. His plan, however,met with utter failure."Thus one civilization grew upon theruins of another civilization in Mexicowithout absorbing from the past any of itsmerits or without learning any of its peculiar problems. Co-ordination and combination were not sought after as had beenthe case in many European conquests.Nothing of the earlier civilization whichevolved in its natural surrounding re mained, but a new and foreign civilization,evolved among different peoples and indifferent physical surroundings, was superimposed on a sensitive race.The principle of assimilation of a conquered people is, in general, a correct viewof conquest, and where circumstances aresuitable to such assimilation a powerful newnation is certain to result. The Spanishconquest, however, failed for want ;Gfproper soil in which to sow their seed a^dfor want of proper method in the sowirig.Professor Priestly summarized the failurethusly: —"There were two essential features of tliesocial policy of Colonial Mexico. The firstwas to reduce the Indian population to theChristian faith as the greatest gift thatSpain could bestow on a benighted heathendom ; the second was to amalgamate theIndians racially with themselves. Therecould be no higher compliment bestowedupon them than that of coriiplete physicaland spiritual identity of the conquered withthe conqueror. But the ideal was impossible of realization because of the chasm between the two cultures and because of thepaucity of the numbers of the Spanish engaged in the enterprise and the overwhelming numerical supremity of the natives."So it is that even today the culture of theminority conquering group, the Spanish, isA public building in Vera Cruz showingthe typical Mexican colonial architectureas contrasted with the modern building atthe extreme left. (From the HarrisFoundation collection.)the predominant culture in a civilizationwhich in numerical content is still overwhelmingly native. Professor PriestlyTHE MEXICAN SITUATION 13An interesting photograph of a Spanish Mission in Vera Cruz. Note the Bell Tower whichforms a part of the interesting atmosphere of the cities of Old Mexico. (From the HarrisFoundation collection.)went on to explain the effect of this overbalanced civilization on the religious life ofMexico. "Thus it came about," he declared, "that on the spiritual side the influence of the church was offset by thedogged persistence in native beliefs andpractices, some of which were finally incorporated in the Christian worship inmodified form as a compromise. The native intelligence was incapable of perceivingthe finer mysteries of the Christian faith.As a superimposed cult it failed to reachthe psychological necessities of the peoplewho had made their own gods whom theycould implore or admonish as occasion demanded. Thus the new religion became agloss or veneer which met little of the soulneeds of the Indian, while on the institutional side it afforded the basis for the development of an hierarchy which dominatedall the activities of life which it controlled,partly in competition with and partly as thecoadjutator of the political hierarchy —itself an imposition apart from the con sciousness of the dominated race. Hencereligion, instead of providing that salvationfrom sorrow and suffering which was itspurpose, became a vehicle for the development of a fanatical faith — an added linkin the chain of a slavery which boundthe native to the service of the white man."Senor Vasconcelos, in his lecture on "Democracy in Latin America," presented akeen analysis of the political problem ofMexico. He condemned "caudillism" asthe disease from which Latin-American nations were suffering as a group. He pointedto the example of Argentine, showing thebeneficial effects of the establishment ofsound government as opposed to the systemof "caudillism"' — successive dictatorshipswhich are built in revolution and counterrevolution and which sap the nationalstrength, enrich individuals, and impoverishthe nation. The vicious devices of suchrevolutionary dictatorships in gaining personal aggrandizement and enrichment areastounding to civilized nations. Confisca-H THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEtion, unlawful taxation, corruption of thejudiciary, regulation of exports and imports with private manipulation of the markets for gain, and many other devices areresorted to in the accomplishment of theirend. And yet Senor Vasconcelos showedthat such dictators are often not the leadersof the revolution but are vultures who follow and wait for the opportune time tostep forward into a position of power.Such are the men who dominate Mexicoand such are the methods they employ.The solution to the troubles o^ Mexicoare varied in their smaller details but may,according to the consensus of opinion of theInstitute lecturers, be all combined underthe one head of education. Three greatelements of civilization must be brought toa higher plane of enlightenment — the socialand religious life, the economic life, andthe political life of the nation.Social reform is a crying need. Personal cleanliness, prevention of disease, care ofdisease, simple rules of sanitation in thehome, must all be brought to the pointwhere they become a recognized personaland social duty of every individual. Thegovernment has taken tremendous stridesto this end in recent years, but evenmoderate success in such measures is dependent on individual recognition of thenecessity. The religious life of the nationmust divorce its hierarchy from the politicalhierarchy of the nation by a natural evolution of the two apart rather than by a forceful revolution or separation of the two.The economic life of the nation must besupported by a stable political structure before it can well advance. Once a stableand secure political life is attained themodernization and standardization of industry, commerce and agriculture shouldprogress with striking rapidity.

Several candidates for the positionwere considered, and early in August Mr.W. Robert Jenkins, Ph. B.

Pierrot as their Secretary-Treasurer.Coming into alumni work when it wasscarcely more than a name, Mr. Pierrotgave himself wholeheartedly to the task ofmaking our alumni body a sound, workingorganization. We need only read hisarticle, "A Brief Review," which appearedin the July issue, to understand how fullyand how completely his efforts have beensuccessful- And not only has he made hisimpress on our own alumni body, but, withyears of experience and helpful knowledgeat his command, he has been a constantsource of valuable aid and inspiration toother alumni workers throughout thecountry.The University, the Alumni, and hisfellow workers in other institutions willfeel tlic loss of his efforts in the alumnifield, but we are all of us none the lesshearty in wishing Mr. Pierrot the greatestsuccess and happiness in the new work heis undertaking.THE third annual Public Conference onEducation and Industry will conveneat the University on October 27th. Theorganization and continuance of this Conferenceis one of the great forward steps that have marked the broaden-Education andIndustry ing interest and influence of our Universityin the past few years.Charles M. Schwab, Vice-PresidentDawes, Major General Harbord, andformer Governor Frank O. Lowden, wereamong the great industrial and civic leaderswho spoke at the Conference last year. Atthe present writing, Dwight W. Morrowof J. P. Morgan and Company, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, former Assistant Secretary of the Navy and President of theAmerican Construction Council, have already accepted invitations to speak at thecoming meeting.Industry and education, as two greathuman forces, have steadily developed amutual interdependence since the decline ofthe old system of direct apprenticeships.The processes of higher education are carried on, to a large extent, in this countrythrough the great gifts of men whose success in the world of commerce and industryhas enabled them to give materially to educational causes. On the other hand, theprocesses of industry have been built to alarge degree in the laboratories of scientificresearch, and the leadership of the industrial and commercial worlds has come to bemade up largely of men whose educationhas iit them for farsighted leadership.Until comparatively recent times, however, the interchange of these vital aids has,in a sense, been a "by-product" of the effortof these great forces. Their mutual helpfulness was apparently as unconscious asthat of the man whose crumbs fall to feedthe bird. Education, intent on its pursuitEVENTS AND COMMENT '7of truths, received its due from industry.Industry intent on its problems, gave to andgained from education what it could. TheWorld War vi^as largely responsible tor theawakening to the realization of the efficacyof their combined activity. Every availableforce within the nation was concentratedtoward a single goal Industry found thestupendous task assigned to her made lighter through the method and knowledgecontributed by education. Educationfound in industry the basic force ofour society and awakened more clearly tothe realization that the ultimate end of alleducation must be the betterment and increased happiness of that society which industry so largely controls.It is most gratifying that our Universityhas gone forward with such rapid stridesin this comparatively recent trend. In conjunction with the Institute of AmericanMeat Packers they have been conductingvaluable research and training men whoseknow^ledge in the special processes of thatgreat industry should contribute much toits betterment. The Public Conference onEducation and Industry is a feature of theclosing day of the annual meeting of thatInstitute and effectively demonstrates,through the widespread acclaim it receives,that the great minds of America as well asthe popular mind are deeply interested andgreatly hopeful of the benefits to be derivedfrom such a forum.THE press of Chicago and Illinois hasrecently been thrown into a hubbub ofexcited discussion over the printed statement of a young theo-Misdirected Energy logue, appearing inone of our prominent ecclesiastical journals. The young manin question made a number of very sweepinggeneralizations apropo of co-educational institutions and a certain great Illinois institution in particular.The newspapers printed detailed excerptsfrom the article in question and attemptedto flay the author into a submission of concrete proof or a tactful, if embarassing,withdrawal and apology. The author re fused to give specific proof on the groundsthat it might bring unpleasant notoriety tomstitutions and individuals and refused alsoto retract, other than to state that the general interpretation has been far more viciousthan he, as a good fellow, had intended.In the meanwhile, the public boughtnewspapers, read skeptically, and, for themost part, discounted the whole affair insofar as it pretended to be a thoughtfulsummary or valid criticism of undergraduate life.We do not believe that any sweepingcondemnation of co-educational institutionsis in order. If for no other reason, suchcondemnation is negative and largely unfruitful of constructive results. After all,we have been aware for centuries that human beings are erring individuals, and anysensational reiteration of that fact, whetherit apply to colleges, homes, cities or nations,is like to receive a cold reception in thinking minds from the standpoint of sheermonotony.On the other hand, we must differ withthe general attitude shown in the counterattack of the press which literally smotheredthe young divine. We cannot help butfeel that the public is too much given to alight consideration and a blanket dismissalof the shortcomings of the youth of today.Because the tendency of the times is towardwholesale condemnation from some scattered quarters, it does not follow that wholesale "whitewash" should be the reaction ofthe majority. Whether present-day youthbe wise or foolish — and we are inclined tosuspect that they are the latter at times —proper cautioning and discipline is no doubtin order. But such discipline becomes thehome and not the institutions of higherlearning.Our sister university which bore thebrunt of the recent furor has the tremendous task of caring not only for the mentalwelfare but also for the moral and spiritualwelfare of upwards of ten thousand normal,spirited, young people. Presumably theyoung theologue and others of like mindwould have the university authorities, likeOld Mother Hubbard, herd their too manychildren into some convenient shoe or simi-i8 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINElar place of incarceration, where they mightbe constantly and properly watched. Suchis not our notion of the duty of an institution toward the spiritual welfare of itschildren. Their's is rather to stand unwaveringly for the finer things of life;creating to the best of their ability a positive attitude of reverence and admirationtoward the right, and imposing only such"don'ts" and restrictions as are necessaryto the well being of an educated society.This, we feel sure, is the spirit and practice of our sister institution. As for therest, it is the function of the home, theparents and the friends to create gentlemenand gentlewomen. Wherein they fail cannot be rightfully laid at the door of highereducation.AN ARTICLE appearing in the July. issue of Harpers Magazine and titled"The Pestiferous Alumni" might have beena serious accusation requir-Pestiferousf ing a sound and snappy"come back" had it beenwritten by any other than Professor PercyMarks. The memory of "The PlasticAge," superficial and almost cheap in itsanalysis of undergraduate life, was yet toofresh in our minds for any serious consideration of this late outburst against alumni.A casual glance at the article would almostconvince us that we were reading a sequelto the first story, in which the artificialcharacters had grown to be alumni. Atany rate it does convince us that PercyMarks looked upon his first work (or maybe it was the royalties) and found it good.As is always the case with the flare-up, hehas chosen a few scattered cases of misguided alumni enthusiasm, limited the scopeof his investigation to those groups ofalumni which fit readily into the picturehe was daubing, and in general raised ascreen of smoke which would satisfactorilyobscure the real picture from the eyes ofthose people who are most likely to readPercy Marks. He frankly asserts that he ispresenting a microscopic view of alumniwhen he pictures a group in a certain NewYork college club. It is evident that heintended the statement to infer that his reader was about to have many hiddentruths revealed. But in actual fact he putshis mental eye to the microscope, holds itthere on that one piece of material, and forgets with utter abandon that the microscope is enlarging to real size what is really an infinitesimal part of the whole material to be studied.Were we interested in "converting" Professor Marks (and we are not, because wefeel that he is conscious of his own exaggerations) we would need only to bring himfor a short time into our own or any otheralumni office where there are innumerableexamples of alumni thought and activitywhich put his argument to shame. Asidefrom that, we cannot even congratulate Mr.Marks on his sagacity in discovering whata certain element of the public w^ants.Others have found it before.The Cost of Higher EducationIN A recent address on "Where FreeEducation Should Stop if at All," before the Institute for AdministrativeOflScers of Higher Educational Institutionsmeeting at the University, Professor HenryC. Morrison, of the School of Education,challenged the policy of free or partly freehigher education for those who can or maybecome able to pay the entire cost."We certainly cannot justify free education of children of wealthy families," Professor Morrison asserted. "As I see studentsdrive up in elaborate automobiles I haven'tvery much patience with the idea that theyshould be getting education at perhaps athird or half cost. It is not good for them;it is not good for the poor boy, and it isbad for the public."A new basis for financing education,termed a "risk plan," was advocated byProfessor Morrison, by which the studentwould be evaluated as a risk and, afterentrance on the selective admission plan,he would be given aid so that instead of"toiling eight hours in the loop and burning the midnight oil for a sort of collegeeducation" he could devote all of his college years to study. He would assume adefinite obligation to pay the entire billlater if able.ALUMNINew Officers of New York AlumniClubJuly 22, 1926As Chairman of the Committee in chargeof the election, I hereby notify you that thefollowing have been elected Officers of theUniversity of Chicago Alumni Club ofNew York City for the 1 926- 1 927 period:President: Harry S.

A. H. Rosburg, M. D. '121920 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINESpecial Election of College AlumniAssociationSeptember 20, 1926Because of his retirement on October i,1926, as Secretary-Treasurer of the AlumniCouncil, Mr. Pierrot submitted his resignation as Secretar\'-Treasurer of the CollegeAlumni Association during September,1926, to the Executive Committee of theCollege Association.A vote, on a written ballot, was taken bythe Executive Committee, and Mr. W.Robert Jenkins, '24, who had recently beenappointed as the new Secretary-Treasurerof the Alumni Council, was unanimouslyelected Secretary-Treasurer of the CollegeAlumni Association to fill the vacancycreated by the resignation of Mr. Pierrot.Members of the Executive Committeeexpressed regret at the retirement of Mr.Pierrot, and thanked him for his many yearsof service to the Association. Mr. Pierrotexpressed thanks for the co-operation oftenextended to him from College Associationofficers and members, stated that the affairsof the Association were sound and growingstronger, and extended best wishes for success to the new administration.^ (^ »A New Idea in Alumni AffairsEIGHTY college and university alumniassociations of America have co-operated to establish intercollegiate alumnihotels in some forty outstanding centers ofAmerica. At these hotels will be foundevery thing planned for the convenienceand comfort of the college man. Here thealumnus of each of these colleges Avill findon file his own alumni magazine and a listof his own college alumni living in theimmediate locality served by the hotel. Hewill find the alumni atmosphere carriedthroughout. This service will be unusuallypleasing, and undoubtedly local alumni spirit will be greatly forwarded by thismovement.In California, where the plan has beenin operation for three years, it has beenfound to be eminently successful. Theintercollegiate alumni hotel idea came intobeing from a very definite need. Thegrowth of travel by automobile combinedwith the gigantic growth in numbers of university and college men has brought tolight the necessity for some place to whichthe visiting alumnus may go when in astrange city to find the names and addressesof his fellow alumni living in the community.Many eminent university leaders havefollowed the growth of the hotel headquarters movement. President Ray LymanWilbur of Stanford University says: "Wehave found by experience that by having anoutstanding hotel in a local community actas a depository for names and addresses oflocal alumni and as general headquartersfor our association activities, the morale ofour alumni association has been greatlystrengthened." Again Robert G. Sproul,Vice-President in charge of Public Relations at the University of California speaksfor his University as follows: "Our alumniassociation in California has grown fromfour thousand to about fifteen thousandmembers in three years. We feel that theaddress lists of local alumni maintained atlocal hotel centers have aided much instrengthening acquaintanceship and forwarding a high type of university spiritamong our alumni."Now the California system is establishedin a nation-^vide service available to thealumni of all uni\ersities and colleges. Itawaits only the full and complete co-ordinated effort of the local alumni to make thisservice one of the finest and most helpfulinstruments for good in the upbuilding andmaintenance of alumni interest in local anddistant centers of America.C THE LETTER BOX 3Birthday Greetings to Mr.RockefellerOn July 8th, it was pleasant to send thefollowing message to the Founder of ourAlma Mater :Minneapolis, Minnesota July 8, 1926.John D.

Evan M. Klock ex '22University Weather ObservatoryMade Chief Official StationFor ChicagoTHE United States Weather Bureau hasmade the University of Chicagoweather observatory in Rosenwald Hall thechief official station for Chicago, and thedata based upon the observations taken therewill henceforth be used in all the officialpublications of the Weather Bureau, superseding those made in the business district.Mr. Henry J. Cox, meteorologist incharge of the North Central Forecast District, Chicago, in his official notification ofthe change, writes that "the observatory atRosenwald Hall is exceptionally well located, and its equipment is not excelled bythat of any other meteorological observatory in this country ; in fact, I might saythat it is hardly equalled."School Administrators MeetTHE American Association of Collegiate Registrars passed a resolutionat their meeting of April, 1924, requestingthe University of Chicago to offer a summer course that would give in more detailthan could be possible in a short convention,the proper practice and procedure in acollege Registrar's office. In response tothis resolution the University offered sucha course the first term of the SummerQuarter of 1926 The University, in addition to the specified course, widened thescope of the program for the last week ofthe term to include an "institute for administrative officers of institutions of higherlearning." The response was almost nation wide and the enthusiasm shown forthe results of the course and the institutewas such that the University will repeatthe program in the Summer Session of 1927.During the week of the institute someseven sessions of fifty minutes each were held each day, similar subjects being assigned to the same hour. Technique ofcollege surveys, orientation courses forfreshmen, freshman week programs, dutiesof the registrar's office, college financialproblems, and general college administrative problems were some of the subjectsthat were brought under discussion. Professor F. W. Reeves of the University ofKentucky led the discussion on surveys,taking as his guide his own survey of theschools under the Church of the Disciples.President Elliot of Purdue, Dr. CharlesJudd, Dr. L. L. Thurston and Mr. WalterA. Payne, of the University of Chicago, andMr. Ezra L. Gillis, registrar of the University of Kentucky, led the discussion onthe activities of the registrar's office. Budgets and finance were discussed under theleadership of President Elliot, RaymondN. Ball, treasurer of the University of Rochester, and Mr. N. C. Plimpton, auditorof the University of Chicago. Dr. SamuelP. Capon, chancellor of the University ofBuffalo led the administrators sessions.One hundred and twenty persons, representing eighty-three different colleges, attended the institute. Among these were22 college or university presidents, 27 deans,31 registrars, 12 financial officers, and 28others representing various branches of college administrative work. One remarkablefeature showing the splendid interest wasthe unbroken attendance at every sessionduring the entire week in spite of record-breaking hot weather.Mr. Walter A. Payne, Recorder and Examiner of the University of Chicago waslargely instrumental in arranging the program of the institute.Honor for Chicago ScientistDR. ARTHUR H. COMPTON,Professor of Physics in the University, has received notification by letter fromUNIVERSITY NOTES 23Rome of his nomination to the section onAstronomy, Geodesy, and Geophysics of R.Accademia Nazionale de Lincei. Thenomination will be submitted to the king,and in due time Professor Compton willreceive the token and publications of theAcademy, the letter states. The Academywas founded in 1 60 1, and has since beenrecognized by the Italian crown.Professor Compton, who received hisDoctor's degree from Princeton Universityin 19 1 6, has been instructor in physics atthe University of Minnesota, researchphysicist for the Westinghouse LampCompany, national research fellow inphysics at Cambridge University, and headof the department of physics in WashingtonUniversity, from which he was called tothe University of Chicago. For two yearsalso he was chairman of the Committee onX-Rays and Radio-activity of the NationalResearch Council. Dr. Compton is associate editor of the Physical Review andauthor of a monograph on Secondary Radiations Produced by X-Rays.Helium Stars as Observed byAstronomersIN 1 901, when helium was being firstobserved in the light of stars, it appearedto Director Edwin B. Frost, of the YerkesObservatory of the University, to be important that the speed of these stars shouldbe measured, and the task was begun. Itscompletion is marked with the publicationof the results compiled by Director Frost,Storrs B. Barrett, and Otto Struve, in thelatest issue of the Astrophysical Journal."This research has brought out the interesting fact," Professor Frost states, "that almost every other one of these stars has aclose companion— not a planet, but a companion star, sometimes only slightly fainterthan the star we see."The helium stars, of which almost fourhundred have been studied, have beenfound to move at a rate of four miles asecond in many cases, which is only a thirdof the average speed of the yellow stars.The helium stars, aside from being youthfuland slow, are among the hottest of thestellar family and are giants in size. This twenty-five years' study of heliumstars at the Yerkes Observatory is to befollowed with the results of an investigation of the speed of about five hundredwhite stars, which has occupied a period ofmore than twenty years.The Evolution of the Human BrainIN a notable volume on Brains of Ratsand Men issued by the University ofChicago Press, the author, Dr. C. JudsonHerrick, Professor of Neurology in theUniversity, presents the findings of a lifetime of study, resulting in the conclusionthat the brain of man has slowly developedout of the brain structures of lower animals,and he traces this progression from thefishes and amphibians, through reptiles,birds, and mammals. But, "somewhere inthe history of primate evolution," accordingto Dr. Herrick, an elaboration has takenplace, leading to the facilitation of rapidlearning and the development of "think-ing.""I can and do control, to some extent,"Professor Herrick asserts, "my own destinyin ways that rats can not do, for I havepowers of imagination, of ratiocination, ofprevision, of idealization, and of volitionwhich they lack."The book, which discusses with remarkable breadth problems that are at the basisof biology, psychology, the social sciences,education, and medicine, explains also manyfeatures of the process of learning. Thediscussion is centered about the brains ofrats and men, as the two species vyhich havebeen studied most extensively and intensively in the laboratory.Professor Herrick is a member of theInternational Commission of Brain Research and recently received from the University of Cincinnati the honorary degreeof Doctor of Science.New Appointments and PromotionsAMONG new appointments to the Fac-. ulties of the University are the following :George Gleason Bogert and KennethCraddock Sears, Professors in the Law24 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINESchool ; Edward Vail L.

Their advent in thelast two years has been a different occasionfrom the ordinary routine enrollment of previous years. An elaborate program of lectures, instruction in university technique andatmosphere, parties and receptions featurethe week of their arrival under the presentplan until the greenest of them wear an airof confidence worthy of a senior by the timethe upper classes assemble a week later.In spite of the fact that such a programdestroys some of the possibilities of innocentamusement for the upperclassmen, it is amost acceptable program and a popular oneas is evidenced by the almost unanimousattendance of the Freshmen at every oneof these occasions.At any rate everyone seems well pleasedwith the new <.lass. They seem to excelin every way — from the number of potential "A" scholars to the number of potential football stars in the Freshman squad.It may be a little ahead of time to predict,but our hope is that the class of '30 will bethe best bunch of alumni yet.Undergrad Is Rifle ChampRussell Wiles, a sophomore at the University this year, is the long range riflechampion of the United States. Wiles wonhis championship this last summer althoughhe has been a leader in the field ever since1923 when at the age of 17 he was highman on the United States rifle team whichwon international matches from England,Canada, and Australia.Green Cap Club OrganizesThe Green Cap Club, successor to theThree-Quarters Club, held its first meeting of the year on October 4th. The occasionof the meeting was a luncheon at whichPresident Max Mason spoke. The luncheon was the first of a series of four whichare held during the fall quarter, the lastone being the time set aside for electionto the order for those who withstand thevigorous training period.The plan of the Green Cap Club is thatits activities and its organization shall becentered around Dean Boucher of the Colleges. Dean Boucher appoints directors ofthe club from among the seniors, and theyin turn appoint day directors from amongthe juniors. These day directors have actual charge of the "daily grind." All elements of hazing have been eliminated fromthe program as outlined in the constitution.The duties consist of learning Chicagosongs, the enacting of stunts, the organizingof a cheering section at the football games,and group participation in other events suchas Homecoming.Lord Bishop of LondonVisits CampusNOT since the Prince of Wales stepped onto our campus a year or twoago, has any visitor occasioned more interestor received a heartier welcome than didthe Right Reverend Ingram, Lord Bishopof London, when he addressed the studentbody in Mandel Hall the evening of October 6th. The Bishop had previouslyspoken at several other universities and reports of his stirring talks and genial fellowship had created an expectant audience.The thought which the speaker gaveChicago students was in the nature of achallenge. Tense with the earnestness ofhis message he made an appeal to the Universities of America to live up to and practice their Christianity. He first comparedChristianity with the other great religions(Please turn to page 36)26With only four letter men back on thesquad and for the most part a very greenlot of freshmen material from last year torely upon, the football prospects for the1926 season looked pretty dull to pre-seasondopesters with Chicago leanings. Captain"Wally" Marks, the only real veteran onthe squad, seemed to be the only ray oflight and you cannot make a football teamout of one man regardless of the popularidiom about "one man teams." In spiteof pre-season gloom, however, at presentwriting the old eternal hope has hit theMaroon fans since a rather passable showing in the Florida game. The Maroonstook the long end of a 12 to 6 from theReal Estate men in addition to a babyalligator that was thrown in as a gift.It would be folly to predict what theremainder of the season will bring. I havenoticed the best of the sport writers stepcautiously on that subject, confining themselves to a trite comment about scarcity ofmaterial. Evidently they saw the fewbright lights that showed up in the Floridagame and, knowing the eternal vigilanceand power of the "Old Man," they wouldrather not jeapordize their own reputationsas seers. SuflSce it to say that the linelooked a bit ragged, opened like a sieve attimes, and held like a rock at other times.The backfield with Marks, McKInney,Rouse, and Anderson showed flashes ofspeed, skill, and real football brains thateven the highly touted team of 1925 wouldhave been proud of at the beginning of theseason. Then too, the whole team showeda better spirit and a better knowledge ofsome fundamentals than any team in thelast few years. But then, we will be raisinghopes too high — and we would rather havea humble but determined spirit than thetype of thought that "goes before a fall." -¦^v^-gs's^ne^miia^m m"Wallie" Marks, Captain of the 1926 football team.WITH a program touching every fieldof fall sport, the intramural commission plans one of the heaviest schedules forthe fall quarter that it has ever attempted.Opening the second week of school with"touch football" competition, the scheduleruns through a series of horse shoe, track,and golf events until the grand climax inDecember, when the annual intramuralswimming carnival will close the quarters'fraternity race for decorative cups to adornthe traditional mantel piece.Close on the heels of the football games,Harry Hagey will begin to whip Into shapea sizeable horseshoe pitching schedule.

Mental Tests,has just been published by Houghton, Mifflin Company. It is a general summary ofthe development, theory, and applicationsof mental tests. The book is somewhatmore comprehensive than most books on thesubject in that it includes tests of specialaptitudes and tests of will, emotions, etc.Applications to education are chieflystressed, and there is also a chapter onvocational aptitude tests and one on therelation of Intelligence to delinquency. Agood deal of attention is given to the interpretation of intelligence tests and the general position is taken that they are notsolely measures of native capacity but alsoin part measures of education and training.Faculty Notes ¦IVIr.

Some of thelargest coal mines of the country werevisited, the travel being by motor car.A field geology course of peculiar interest was that in the region of British Columbia between the Columbia and Eraserrivers, where the research concerns thecause of the Spokane flood, which occurredduring Pleistocene time. The class whichwas in charge of Professor J. Harlen Bretz,was limited to seven men who could "roughit." A unique course in regional geography,lasting five weeks, was conducted by Assistant Professor Derwent S.

(Continued from page 14)tremendous strides have been taken in thisdirection."In twenty-five years," declared SenorSaenz, "Mexico City has changed fromwhite calico dress to overalls. From noorganization at all Mexican labor can nowboast of ^ strong organization. The Mexican Federation of Labor works efEcientlyfor the interests of the working classes. TheLabor group is encouraged by the government who look to the development of anenlightened proletariat for the salvation ofthe nation."On th; other hand, the present laborparty threatens to be a peril. They areshowing their strength in the political lifeof the nation and not always in the direction of proper enlightenment. Opposition to foreign interests has had its expression in alien property laws which threatenforeign interests in Mexico. The expulsionof the foreigner at this time, when the enlightenment of the native has not progressed sufficiently, threatens a completeretrogression rather than a progression inMexican economic life.Politically the need of Me.xico is truerepresentative democracy. "AJl the political problems of Latin-America," assertedJose Vasconcelos, "are summed up in twowords — democracy and dictatorship. Theproblem is to do away with dictatorshipand establish a true democracy for thefirst time."Senor Vasconcelos held out high hope forthe establishment of such government in thenear future of Mexico. He declared thatthe greatest virtue of the Latin people istheir facility in adjusting themselves tocomplete change, and pointed out that this\ irtue would eventually enable democracy,the only right form of government, to succeed.THE MEXICAN SITUATIONIn a closing statement, Professor Priestlymade a sweeping summary of the situationin Mexico."The body politic of Mexico marchesstraight to the point of social liquidationunless the innate force of the people throughsage leadership can stop secular influencesof hostility and privilege which successiverevolutions and a national inferiority complex have built up. The people can do thisif they learn to use, instead of to refuse,the aids which are to be secured by cooperation of foreign influences and capitalwithout which no modern state has beenable to emerge from primitive stages ofthe fight to control the economic forces ofnature. Without such co-operation, all independent nations fall back upon the process of self-exhaustion which holds such apresent menace for the courageous and deserving but unfortunate people of Mexico."The Norman Wait Harris MemorialFoundation was established in 1923through the gifts of a daughter, Mrs. PearlHarris MacClean, and Albert W. Harris,Norman Dwight Harris, Hayden B. Harris, and Stanley G. Harris, sons of theformer Chicago banker for whom theFoundation is named. The purpose of theFoundation, as described in the letter whichaccompanied the donation, is "the promotion of a better understanding of other nations through wisely directed educationaleffort." The work of the Institute ofPolitics established under the Foundationhas been strikingly successful in carryingforward the excellent purpose of thedonors.(Continued from page 37)Edith H. Bell, '22.

Professor A. A.Michelson, former head of the Departmentof Physics at the University of Chicago, announced that the famous Michelson-Morleyexperiment of 1883, upon the negative results of which Einstein based his celebratedtheory of relativity, would be repeated onMount Wilson next December.Professor Michelson said, also, that hehad obtained very satisfactory results thissummer, measuring the velocity of light asit traveled, reflected back and forth bymeans of a set of mirrors, from Mount Wilson to Mount San Antonio, twenty-twomiles away. As a result of the experiment. it is expected that a much higher precisionin the measurement of the light's velocitywill be attained than has ever before beenrecorded.Experts are now at work in Pasadena toperfect the interferometer, Professor Mich-elson's own invention, which he will usewhen he conducts once more the world-famous experiment which "involves theproblem of measuring the speed of the earthand with it the whole solar system throughspace."The interferometer devised by ProfessorMichelson was used by him in several important earlier investigations, notably, theestablishment of the meter in terms of lightwaves, undertaken by Dr. Michelson inFrance at the request of the InternationalBureau of Weights and Measures; hismeasurement of the diameter of the red star,Betelgeuse; and the ether drift experimentof 1924-25 which studied the efEect of therotation of the earth on the velocity of light,confirming on completion certain parts ofthe Einstein theory.Texas South Plains LandMarvelous development is now taking place on theSouth Plains of Texas.

"HELD ON THE2-YARD LINE"I HERE'S no more heart-breaking experiencethan to see the team battle its way down th;field — around end fot a yard or two, offtackle for a few more — only to be stoppeddead and held for downs with a touchdown and victory only two yards away.Just one ounce of extra power would have won thegame. But the team lacked just that — thac little ounceof extra power.Every business office has dozens of men competentCo do their routine work well, who can become sub-executives or assistant managers.But there are only one or two men who — citherthru years of experience, or else by carefully directed,intelligent study — know/ the ins and outs of their business, know it in all its departmencs. These arc the menwith the vital extra power that carries them over theline into the higher positions, and into the firm whenthe openings come.• • • •For years the Alexander Hamilton Institute hasspecialized in the single task of training men for thehigher executive positions in business, of giving themthat "ounce of extra power" that makes all the difference between mediocre success and the really big thingsof life. Into the Course have been built the experienceand methods which have made many of today's business leaders pre-eminent.Not for one moment do we claim that we have anymagic formula for success. But we do make it possiblefor you to gain in a few months' study what it wouldtake you years to gain thru experience.The Course is not a substitute for hard work orcommon sense.We don't take credit for the fine work done by ourgraduates any more than Yale and Princeton and Harvardtake credit for the success of theirs. We simply givemen the facts they need to gain the extra power, ifthey are big enough to use these facts, they succeed. Ifthey aren't — they would have failed anyway.The Course and Service is arranged and conductedin accordance with University practice and ideals.Like the University, the Institute urges no man to accept its help; but, seeking the widest possible fieldof service, ic offers information freely.A booklet has been prepared that gives all the factsabout the Institute. More than 100,000 college graduates, now in business and the professions, have read it.It answers questions thac have doubtless been in yourmind. It indicates definitely how this training can beuseful to you in the work you are doing, or would likeCO do.
