But judging by hisrnore recent activities he was at that partic-ular moment érijoying a period of comparative leisure. Even then he was managingeditor of one of the world's great news-papers, which seemed a sizable task. Buttoday he is managing editor of a greaternewspaper — for to the News has been addedthe Journal. Not content with an eight hour job he has spent another eight hours ofeach twenty-four in writing a novel ofthe newspaper game that is as realistic asa biography and, together with LloydLewis, has produced a history of his nativetown and its reputation that is as fascina-ting as a novel and is a best seller innon-fiction field.Many Chicago folks stili cali him"Ernie" Irons and esteem it a rare privilegeto be on terms of such intimacy with theauthor of The Future of Rush.

R. E. Wyant, M.D.A T THE last Alumni Reunion, when/A we were ali feeling so responsive,^ -^the Editor secured my promiseto write a reminiscent article on football for the first issue of the Magazinethis fall. And now his "come on" : "I knowthat this letter is unnecessary. One of yourold friends said the other day, 'If AndyWyant has promised you an article you'llget it.' But just as a matter of course Iam reminding you, etc." I am alreadytoo busy with professional duties, but heregoes to the winds ali reticerìce about thepassing years and let my old footballscrap-book teli its personal story. Al-though I have bagged a flock of degreesA.B., A.M., B.D., Ph.D., and M.D.even with summa cum laude and fellowshiphonors in the dim and distant past, I amglad that the Editor did not ask me togive an exhaustive dissertation . on somescholarly theme, but to write on a subjectwhich has always been popular and fas-cinating with me since our freshman classin 1888 defeated the combined upperclasses of the University and practically in-troduced football at Bucknell. Footballwas real foot ball in those early days, for the center stood on one foot and snappedback the ball with the other foot. Wewere too poor then at Bucknell to hirea football coach, but after playing overfifty games in four years with Easterncollege teams we got considerable experi-ence and our class of '92 had the honorof furnishing football captains at Chicagoin 1893, '94 and '95.We had heard of the "varsity out in theWest" and carne early. The first nigr>tin South Dormitory I used a tallow can2Sfófor light and my knife-handle for a dool-knob. I interviewed President Harperat once and he somehow gave me the im-pression that he was joyfully anticipatingmy arrivai. Perhaps he recognized the needof brawn as well as brains in the new University. He had engaged Amos AlonzoStagg as athletic director and had done theunheard of thing in making him a fullProfessor of Physical Education, a splendidprecedent that has been followed by an in-creasing number of colleges. PresidentHarper's judgment has been fully vindi-cated. Of ali the famous veteran footballcoaches and athletic directors in the country"the old man" is second to none. His foot-56 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEball team this year is his thirty-eighth andhis personality and character have been re-flected in the winning and worthy record ofhis teams through these years. Comparedwith the numbers at other big ten schools,available men have always been pitiably few.They were especially scarce the first season."In those days of auld lang syne our ath-letes were few."Stagg as Captain, Back and CoacliTJiere were no eligibility rules way backin those days, East orWest. When Bucknelldefeated Cornell in 1891 ,a former crack half-back at Harvard andcoach played against us.So Stagg joined in withthe squad and, of course,was captain and half-back as well as coach in1892. There were 14 ofus, and we played 13'games that first season,the first 6 against Chicago high school andY.M.C.A. teams and 7of them inter-collegiate.The Englewood HighSchool gave us a toughbattle and there was oneplay that became histori-cal. The two teamsstood 6 to 6 near thedose when Stagg got theball from a scrimmageand broke loose on awide end run. On theopposite side of the field _, . „¦ , , Captaina crowd of about 200,watching the game, had pressed about 15yards beyond the sidelines on the field ofplay. The Englewood team, includingWallie McCornack, later a Dartmouth starand Northwestern coach, ran Stagg into thecrowd and the next time they saw him hewas behind the goal line fifty yards awayscoring the winning touchdown. "The storythat I used a mounted cop for interferenceis a bit exaggerated," says the veteran coach.We tied Northwestern and Lake Forest and had four defeats. In fact, we playedso poorly that Illinois was the only collegewe beat, but they got back at us by lickingus in a later game. It is curious to notethat Captain Stagg did not play in thisgame. His ankle had been injured in prac-tice and he was unable to run, so Illinoisasked that he be made referee of the game.Can you imagine it? The coach and captain of one team being asked by opponentsto officiate! Good sports! It was in hisgame that Henry Galefirst had a chance toshow his football calibrethat made him a regularfor the next three years.For more than 20years a picture of thisfirst football team hashung in my office. Inthe early days that werenot so many divisive in-terests and a real feelingof affectionate fellow-ship was developed. Oneof the genuine pleasuresof the football season isto meet many of these"old-timers" in the "C"men section. Alas, twoof that first team havealready finished thefighi.First Elected Captain,1893Coach Stagg once paidme a compliment at a"C" dinner in saying thatI had a reputation for never missing apractice. It was my honor to be Chicago'sfirst elected football Captain for 1893.During that season we played 12 inter-collegiate games. We won 6, lost 4 andtied 2. We did not play minor teams thatseason. Our victories were over ArmourInstitute, Michigan, University of Cincinnati, Notre Dame and Northwesterntwice. The Maroons played two gameswith Michigan that fall, winning the firstAndy" WyantAN "OLD TIMER'S" FOOTBALL REMINISCENCES 7game io to 6 and losing the second 28 toioon Thanksgiving day during a heavy snow-falL I played against a 240 pound Centerbut I was an optimist — "the heavier theyare the harder they fall."Celebratiti^ a Great VìctoryAfter our first glorious victory overMichigan, undergraduate Joy was vented ina great celebration on the Midway. TheChicago Inter-Ocean printed the followingaccount of the demonstration :"The team was carted around Hyde Parkwith 60 men at the ropes. President Harper Js house and that of Secretary Goodspeedwere made objective points. PresidentHarper bowed to the bowling undergraduate demand for a speech and said:'Gentlemen of the football team, I amproud of you. The battle you have foughttoday is typical of the battle of life. Youhave won a glorious victory today. I hopeyou may do as well in life. You have workedwith the characteristic Chicago spirit andthe result was most pleasing. I trust that"m the future your success will be as sigoaias it has been today. J"The crowd then turned to SecretaryGoodspeed5s„ The smiling dignitary said:'Hurrah! The game is won! Boys5 itmeans $10,000 to the University.5 A greatlire was built in front of Snell hall, and awild serenade was perpetrated in thewomen's quadrangles."President Harper s DreamIn those early days such was the com-radery of the youthful President Harperwith his boys that he even dreamed aboutthem, As I approached him one day on thecampus I saw a characteristic genial smilebroadening over his face getting ready fora jovial greeting. "Wyant," he said, "Ihad a dream about you last night." "Itrust it was a dream of good omen," I re-pliedo "I dreamed that you were an end-man of a minstrel show and you werereally very amusing."As I remember how we began in June togrow a hair head-gear and my custom ofstanding erect at center, watching the back-field formation unni my opponent was about to snap back the balls I surmise what in-spired the dream. Some caricatura hereinreproduced are also suggestive.In fact, I was a sort of a center-end-mao.The U. of C. Weekhj said: "Wyant,, thebig center of last years will be back io hisold positionc He is probably one of the bestmen at the apex of the line in the West andcertainly no other center made as manytackles as he did last year„" I may also bepardoned for recalling that "the old man"once told me that I was making moretackles than any center or guard he hadseen except Heffelfinger. I had played fouryears against well coached Easte rn teams.Most of our opponents here were intx-perienced, the signals were simple andeasily solved5 and I quickly anticipated offensive plays around the endo As our linecharged forward and our defense wasblocked man by man, I darted across behlndthe line as a sort of roving-center andtackled the man with the ball just as hehad circled our end.Center Makes a TouchdownIn the game with Lake Forest as Captain I attempted a two-fold feat; that ofplaying center where I had never playedbefore and of giving the signals from center position for the first time* In thosedays Lake Forest was a big school and hadthe Jackson brothers, Hayner and othergood players on the team. Darkness carneon before the game was completedo Thescore stood 14 to io in favor of Lake Forestwith one minute and forty seconds to play.The report runs: "The ball was snappedback in the darkness, a wedge revolveds themen scattered and Captain Wyant wasfinally discovered sitting on the ball backof the goal. Lake Forest protested andsome of the players insisted that Wyanthid the ball under his blouse. Chicagoclaimed the privilege of kicking for twomore points to win the game, but finallyit was compromised by allowing the scoreto stand 14 to 14."Playing to Win the DoughThere is another rather humorous storythat I once related at a joint good-will ban-quet of Chicago and Northwestern men atTiI|(E; UNIVERSITY QF CHICAGO MAGAZINEVA'* 7HAM WHite VfctL UeapeRRtf 0. fi.

"Poppy" Goodspeed carne run-ning breathlessly into the dressing roomduring the intermission between halves andsaid: "Boys, you simply must win thisgame. John D. Rockefeller's personalrepresentative is here." We do not knowhow much Mr. Rockefeller might havegiven our University if we had won thatgame, but we did win 22 to 14 in a latergame the same season and probably thatwas why John D. gave so much." It wasnot any advantage to us that Stagg refereedthis game also. The feeling of goodwillwas so much in evidence that the ChicagoTribune 's major and minor headlines were:"This Isn't Foot Ball." "Game WithoutAny Slugging." Coach Stagg Plays Once MoreIn contrast with the above, our defeatby Purdue stands out in my memory. Wehad both our quarter-backs laid up by in-juries and Stagg played quarter-back undermy captaincy in that game. Purdue had notyet been defeated on her own ground andhad recently scored 96 to O against Butler.The Chicago Record described it as a battle royal: "The spectators behaved badlyin the first half and criticized the umpirefor faults that would have passed unnoticedhad the struggle been less evenly matched.At one point of the game when slugging wasso prominent as to form an unpleasantfeature the prosecuting attorney walked onthe field and suggested that the Tippecanoecounty grand jury was in session andmight be prompted to return indictmentsfor assault and battery."AN "OLD TIMER'S" FOOTBALL REMINISCENCESTwenty-Two Games in 18Q4"War-horse" Alien was the secondelected Captain for the season of 1894 andwas re-elected for 1895. He was captainof the football team for four years atBucknell and two years at Chicago, havingplayed eight years. He surely earned thedegree of "War Horse" !The season of 1894 at Chicago wouldput to shame even present day professionalteams. The Maroons played 22 games,and the season extended from September29 to January 3. Compare that with themodem Big Ten schedules! During theregular season the team won 1 1 games, lost7 and played 1 tie, scoring 308 points totheir opponente 140. Then on a trip tothe Pacific coast four games were played,two with Stanford which brought a fifty- fifty split and two with athletic clubs. Chicago scored 76 against her opponente 22points. This was the first Eastern teamto appear on the coast. The holiday tripto the Pacific coast remains as one of thehigh spots in my football experience. Inever had a better time in my life. It willbe worth more than the price of the bookto xead Stagg's vivid description in "Touchdown!" of this honeymoon football ex-cursion in our palatial private car.

The future President of the U.S.A. was there togreet us!The San Francisco press treated usroyally. We never got so much publicitybefore. We gave Stanford its first defeat;but how could it be otherwise? Quota-tion: "Words are inadequate to portray tothe mind successfully an idea of the football skill which the Maroon people dis-played to the San Francisco public. Fancytricks weré^executed with a haste never before witnessed on the Coast. Swiftness ofputting the ball into play was the featurein which Chicago stood head and shouldersabove Stanford. Speed cuts a great figurein a pig-skin match, and it was mainly speedwhich won yesterday's contest. Chicago'sinterference was nearly perfect. The elevenworked together like clock work. Everyman was found in his place."Pen Pictures of Divinity MenSome marvelous pen pictures were drawnof various members of the team especiallyof the three divinity students. Here is oneof Captain Alien: "He stands six feet highand is one of the most determined playersimaginable. He has a splendid physiqueand indomitable courage, and is, moreover,particularly well acquainted with every de-tail of the game. He is gritty, tricky and,above ali, never surrenders, no matter howunpromising the prospect. He seems tohave a naturai propensity for the game.When the fight is the fiercest Allen's genialmood reaches the climax. He was by farthe best man to advance the ball for Chicago."Another panegvric follows: "Wyant thecenter of the Chicago team, was a con-spicuous character. Strong as an ox andwith the endurance of a mule he pushedhis way through the lines, scoring frequentlyyards of advantage for his team. He isconsidered the cleverest player on the team,tricky and sharp, using his head at ali times.He stands 6 feet 2 inches in his stockingfeet, but is not as heavy as he looks, tippingthe beam at 170. It is said of Wyant thathe is covered with 'corners' and is in conse-quence a bad man to run against in a scrimmage. He has bucked more thansuccessfully against opposing centers out-weighing him by 40 pounds and few ofthem have been heard of who cared abouttaking another turn at him. Withal Wyanthas the reputation of being exceedingly even-tempered and of playing exceptionally cleanfootball."The ball bounded over the fence onceand, although a Stanford man had a Rveyards start Ad Ewing took the fence inhis usuai high hurdle, as on the track team,and captured the ball. This vivid portrayalwas given: "The Rev. Ewing, D.D., left-half for Chicago, is a host in himself. Tosee a regular ordained minister of the gospelsprinting across the gridiron with a brightpurple shirt-tail flying at half-mast is arather unusual spectacle tp say the least.But when Mr. Ewing cleared the fence ata bound in pursuit of the ball and landedon a Stanford enthusiast on the other side,people forgot his calling in admiration ofhis genius."Old-Time Football CasualtiesThe first half of the Stanford game wasa desperate struggle and at its dose theumpire gave a rather "rotten" decision thatrobbed us of a touchdown after Lamay'sgreat run of 45 yards. A Chicago minis-terial friend, near by on the sidelines, hasbroadcasted that he heard me say: " !"But I never swore a profane oath in my life.Prophets sometimes hear inner voices; itwas a clear case of hallucination. Quarter-back Herring told the umpire that it wasa "cheesey" deal and received a smack inthe face. Frank countered with a wallopon the nose and the bleeding umpire quithis job!Reliance Athletic Club was noted fortheir vicious playing and on New Year'sday the game at times was almost a prizefight multiplied by eleven.

There was an uproaragainst football throughout the country.The game was outlawed in several schools.One college president said: "Certainlythe ordinary prize fight, out in the open,controlied by watchful referees, is a safeand civilized procedure compared with theAmerican game of football." And he favor-ably quoted John L. Sullivan, who oncesaid: "I won't mix up in no football business. It's too rough. I'm willing to fightlike a white man, but when you try to pulìme into a riot where everything from goug-ing to breaking of backs goes, you can betyour life I'd rather take a chance in a railroad accident or in something wherethere's a look-in."The most conspicuous charge against football was its intolerable roughness. Someof us "old-timers" have lively recollectionsof the days of the "flying wedge" when thetwo opposing teams in solid phalanx wouldcome together with a crash like the armiesof Gog and Magog. There has never beena question about football being a violentgame and it has doubtless at times beenplayed with unnecessary fierceness. Inter-collegiate football rules have been formu-lated to reduce the opportunities for foulplay and brutality, whether accidental ordeliberate; to make it more difficult for"dirty playing" to pass undetected; andthese rules are being more strictly enforcedby an increased number of ofHcials.Pkysical Fitness and Preliminary TrainingI believe that it was largely due to ful-filling the two conditions of physical fitnessfor the game and adequate preliminarytraining that I played through nearly 10012 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcollegiate contests without receiving an injury sufficient to re tire me from a singlegame. I was never a substitute player forone minute in seven years.The charge of frequent serious injuries,leading to permanent weaknesses whichprove a handicap to the victim in later life,would be important and almost unanswer-able, if it could be established. I havewritten to a number of "old-timers" whotestify that even primitive football was alto-gether1 beneficiai to them, despite the injuriesreceived. Although they were seriousenough, they were insignificant when com-pared with the moral and mental disciplineand bodily advantage. I have not heardof a single case where football has hindereda man from being physically what he mighthave been had he never entered the game,but, on the contrary, they have testified thatthey were beitter fitted for life's tasks.Thanks to a good physical heredity and afair observance of hygiene, I can testifythat I have not missed a full day's professional service on account of illness sinceI left the University. Prevention is betterthan cure.Periodic Medicai ExaminationsAt the last annual dinner of the Orderof the "C" I called attention to the signifi-cant stars that follow the names of morethan forty of our Order and presented thefollowing resoultion that was unanimouslyadopted :"In view of a prevalent idea that manystudent athletes, by their intensive training,surfer from resultant physical ills in afteryears, and for the purpose of providingreliable information concerning the permanent value of strenuous athletic games,showing their physical help or hindrance tothe individuai in later life ;"And also to furnish some data to themedicai school in its special study of de generative diseases of middle life due topreventable causes, for which Mr. Lasfcergave one million dollars;"We hereby express our desire that theClinics of the University of Chicago makearrangements to offer each "C" man regularperiodic health examinations, includingcomplete blood count, complete urinalysis,ali blood tests, complete dentai X-ray ex-amination, and fluoroscopic and stereoscopieexamination of the body, estimating withthe aid of the instruments of precision anysigns of degenerative changes; also givingmedicai advice for the future well-being ofthe individuai who, as a student athlete,gave his best physical powers to help honorhis Alma Mater."Stagg 's Ideal — Building MenAbove ali physical help or even hindrance,we "old-timers" recognize the great servicewhich "the old man" has rendered in building up those higher qualities of characterwhich constitute real manhood.

IronsDean of Rush Medicai CollegeTHE announcement that Rush willcontinue as one of the two MedicaiSchools of the University givingundergraduate instruction leading to thedegree of Doctor of Medicine has broughtjoy and satisfaction to every Rush alumnusand we may well celebrate this date 1929,which equals in importance 1837 the date ofthe Rush Charter, 1898the date of affiliation withthe University of Chicago, and 1924 the dateof organic union of Rushwith the University.Professor Stieglitzvoiced our feeling in hisaddress at the Trustee'sDinner in February. —"I wish to congratulatethe Trustees and theFaculties of our University on the recent deci-sion to continue both ofour Medicai Schools. Ihave always been con-vinced that we need bothof them if the University is to accomplish thegreatest measure of goodin the field of medi- Dean Ironscai education and in thedevelopment of first class physicians, medicai teachers and research men."May I review very briefly the steps thathave led up to this happy conclusion.Throughout the period of affiliation withthe University initiated by PresidentHarper, Rush profited greatly by the highquality of instruction given at the University to the students in the first two years,but the absence of a definite future programfor Rush made the labor of those years moredifficult than it might have been. It hasoften been suggested that out of the dif-ficulties of those years, when members of the faculty made up College deficits out oftheir own pockets, grew the ùnparalleled de-votion and loyalty which has carried Rush toa safe and worthy solution of her problem.When the University determined todevelop a Medicai School on the Quad-rangles, the agreements of 1916 called forthe continuation of Rush as a PostgraduateSchool. This was im-portant in that it pro-vided against ultimatecomplete dissolution andloss of the name of Rushwith its wealth of tradi-tion, but the immediateoutlook of postgraduateteaching apart from undergraduate teachingwas not inspiring. In1924 the period of affiliation ended and Rush be-came an organic part ofthe University. Plansfor the Rush Postgraduate School were madeand undergraduate medicai instruction con-tinued, but stili with noassurance as to its pro-longed duration.We had, however, thesupport of President Burton. In his Convo-cation statement in June, 1924 commentingon the union of Rush and the UniversityPresident Burton said, "On behalf of theUniversity, I extend to ali these, — profes-sors and students, a welcome into our community and fellowship. We believe thatthis long-desired consummation of the hopesof many years will bear rich fruit for thecause of medicai education. In rendering itsopinion in approvai of the decision of thelower court, the Supreme Court of Illinoistook occasion to praise the wisdom andbroadmindedness of those who were respon-*Address to Rush Alumni at the Annual Dinner, June, 1029.1314 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEsible for thus bringing into the Universityitself a work carried on so long and so successfully, first in independence and later inaffiliation with the University. We con-fidently believe that posterity will re-affirmthis judgment, and the University willleave no stone unturned to see that thisis in fact the case."President Mason continued the studyand the problem of Rush was again discusseci from ali angles— but always thediscussian centered about two ideas —i— The aim of the University to developan unusual type of Medicai School on theMidway.2 — The importance to medicai educationof continuing the stròng clinical group ofRush Medicai College— and of conservingthe enormous values in the traditions, pastperformance and possibilities for the futureof Rush.At length after as thorough explorationas could be made, a solution essentiallysimilar to the one now adopted was formu-lated but unexpected circumstances pre-vented its presentation. We were greatlydisappointed but after a day for recoveryof spirits, the discussions were renewed,this time from another angle. The newconferences resulted in the invitation of theUniversity to the Board of Managers ofthe Presbyterian Hospital to discuss thepossibility of moving the Presbyterian Hospital to the Midway. There were evidentadvantages and disadvantages to be con-sidered by both parties to this proposai, andafter prolonged deliberation the HospitalBoard decided against the pian.When it became evident that the proposai would not be approved by the Hospital, the Board of Medicai Affairs at theUniversity considered a solution similar tothat formulated but not presented twoyears previously and the present pian forthe continuation of Rush Medicai Collegeas one of two Medicai Schools of the University was recommended to the Presidentand approved by the Board of Trusteesof the University.The effect of this decision will be to givethe University two Medicai Schools inwhich instruction, will lead to the degree of Doctor of Medicine. Students complet-ing the first two years of medicine at theUniversity will elect the school in whichthey wish to complete their work. Students who have completed the first twoyears of medicine in other Medicai Schoolsand who can meet the requirements of theUniversity will be admitted to Rush asheretofore. Postgraduate work in Rushwill be continued, available to a limitednumber of suitably prepared graduates inmedicine who are willing to devote oneor more years to preparation for the practiceof a specialty.At this time when we are rejoicing in thepreservation and continuance of Rush, mayI remind you of the faithful and patientlabors of Dr. Dodson, who as Dean ofStudents felt many of the hard knocks aswell as the joys of a Dean for twenty-fiveyears. To him, as well as to the Deanof the Faculty, Dr. Billings, and the othergreat-souled men of the Rush Faculty, weowe a lasting debt of gratitude.The aims of the two schools are thesame, the production of well-trained phy-sicians and research men and the increaseof human knowledge. Their methods ofoperation are at present somewhat different.We at Rush know that we shall be stimu-lated and helped by the South Side School,and we hope that we may be of someassistance in return. The two schools willsupplement each other and make possibleresults which neither could attain alone.Close cooperation will make possible aninterchange of students and instructorsand will place at the disposai of researchworkers larger clinical facilities than wouldotherwise be available and in some instancesavoid the duplication of certain expensivespecial laboratories.In the vast discussions of twenty years,of methods and aims of medicai education,,varying emphasis has been placed on theimportance of the clinical and researchmethods of approach. A school in whichclinical teaching is emphasized to the exclu-sion of research offers no hope of progress,and in a school devoted to research, with-out adequate clinical teaching, the prospectof enduring growth seems poor. In bothTHE FUTURE OF RUSH '5First Rush Medicai College Lecture Room Q643) First Rush Medicai College Building (1844)SfittiiliP'IlfjrlH'iIMI UH un,,,,Rush Medicai College C'867) RuinS Of Rush College (Chicago Fir»,l67Ì)When Rush Was Youngour Medicai Schools research and clinicalteaching are provided for, though at presentin different relative proportions. Thefuture will see this difference grow steadilyless.While research in the laboratory hasmade possible many of the great advancesin modem medicine, we should not forgetthat there is a great and fertile field forresearch in the clinic. The clinical medicineof the bedside is becoming more and morescientifìc medicine. In the observation andevaluation of clinical data there are requiredthe same qualities of mind, vision, alertness,careful observation and control, and criticaijudgment that characterize the successfullaboratory worker. Many of the greatestmedicai gifts to man have come from theclinic. Experience gained through longcontact with patients frequently suggestsproblems which cannot originate in thelaboratory, and the conditions of a clinicalproblem may even suggest the means of itssolution. This solution will require the technique, equipment and training of thelaboratory. The clinician must have thetraining and means at hand to carry outboth clinical and laboratory studies.The clinician who would carry on research is exposed to distractions not metwith in the laboratory. He has an un-excelled opportunity but must overcomeunequaled difficulties. He can succeed onlyif he is sustained by the high ideals of hiscolleagues, the high morale of the school.While we thus are fostering the spirit ofresearch in Rush we shall not forget herclinical traditions. The degree of Doctorof Medicine carries with it an obligationto the public which is equaled by that ofno other professional degree. Whateverelse the attainments of a student may be,the degree of Doctor of Medicine shouldmean the possession of knowledge whichwill enable him to meet the ordinary problems of illness to which he may be called.If his interests are such as to preclude hisacquiring an adequate minimum standardi6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEof medicai qualification he should not expectto receive the degree of Doctor of Medicine.Adequate preparation for the practice ofmedicine requires a much broader knowl-edge now than thirty years ago. Increasedknowledge carries with it an increasedobligation.Insistence on certain fundamental knowledge of the specialties is essential to themaking of a safe doctor, and in no wisejustifies the complaint that we are educatingspecialists. Some knowledge of conjuncti-vitisp iritis, and acute glaucoma does notmake an ophthalmologist but may enablethe young practitioner to avert a lifetimeof blindness by prompt action in an emer-gency. Nor does the exhaustive explorationof a limited topic in internai medicine expose the student to the fatai malady ofearly specialism. If his study is rightlydirected, he gains the habit of thoroughnessand acquires intellectual power. The con-sciousness of having done one thing wellcreates a new urge to excel in others.' The formai, inflexible curriculum ofyears ago has been modified by the introduc-tion of the principle of wider election. Foryears no two students in Rush have takenexactly the same courses and we hope toincrease stili further the opportunity forthe student to select the subjects and in-structors to suit his individuai needs. How-ever, in discussions of medicai educationit has not always been recognized that notover ten percent of students can profit bya sweeping application of the elective system.Failure to recognize this has led in somequarters to educational recklessness underthe guise of a liberal educational policy.We hope at Rush to produce not onlygòod doctors, but in addition a reasonableshare of teachers and men interested inresearch. Judging by the past this hopeseems well founded. To quote again ourgood friend, Professor Stieglitz, "The mostimpressive contribution of Rush MedicaiCollege is to be found in its astonishingoutput of great physicians and investiga-tors." You will at once recali the namesof Lewis, Rowan, Fisher, Wherry, Graham,Smith, as representative of the group of thealumni and faculty of Rush who have been called to head departments in other Uni-versities, as well as those of our own facul-ties who after varying periods of absencehave returned to strengthen our own schools.Corning to the more immediate presentthere are now under way at Rush, in spiteof limited facili ties, 40 research projectswhich require laboratory space and equip-ment. The Presidente report of 1928 lists170 articles published in 1927 by the Rushfaculty. Many of these involved monthsor years of laboratory and clinical investiga-tion.The performance of graduates of Rushbefore State Licensing Boards may be re-garded, in the case of some states, as arather doubtful educational criterion, butwhen in 1928, 159 Rush graduates, includ-ing 104 graduates of 1928, were examinedby the Boards of 26 states without afailure, this seems reasonable evidence thatthe instruction on the Quadrangles and atRush, has been of high degree of excellence,and that these men to some extent at leasthave learned to think.Even our younger faculty members arereceiving honors. Dr. Herrick has justbeen awarded the Kober medal for dis-tinguished contributions to American Medicine by the Association of American Physicians, and Dr. Hektoen has been decoratedby the King of Norway.Our satisfaction with the contemplationof past performance has not blinded us toour shortcomings, which are many. Im-provements in equipment and in methodsof teaching already under way in somedepartments will proceed more rapidly asfunds are supplied. Promising young menshould spend substantially ali their timefor from three to five years with suitablybalanced programs of teaching and research,with the necessary contacts with patientsin dispensary and hospital. For this livingsalaries are necessary.But with our policy determined and theperpetuation of Rush assured, on whatdoes our future depend? In the words ofmany of our Faculty our future dependson the continuation of the same spirit ofdevotion which has motivated the effortsof the past. Increased facilities and fundsTHE FUTURE OF RUSH *7will multiply effectiveness of effort, butmore important than these is a high ideal.The future is ours if we take it.We are in urgent need of more endowment, more funds for Fellowships, and morebuildings for research and teaching. TheUniversity has made available for Rush$500,000 originally given for two full-timeprofessorships in Rush. We believe that wecan use the income from these funds tobetter advantage if there is no restrictionas to distribution, and accordingly theprofessorships have been transferred to theSouth Side and the endowment replaced by$500,000 the income from which is un-restricted. In addition to income fromsmaller endowment funds for Fellowships,and the Mae Bridge Fund for Pathology,the University has authorized an increase of $10,000 over the amount shown as income in our budget for next year. Thiswill allow us to begin our program ofopportunity for young men, but within theyear this will be totally inadequate for thatcontinued growth of Rush which you asalumni hope to see. We have made buta beginning. We look confidently to theRush alumni to assist us in obtaining newfunds to enable us to grasp with sure handthe opportunity for which we have hopedand waited so long. A few evenings agoDr. Billings called a group of us togetherto pian for the future of Rush and an-nounced that he had taken his coat off andwas out for work. Can we keep our coatson when his is off?

Then carne a reminder;perhaps" a glimpse between the curtains ofa barren fiat, perhaps the sight of an ill-dressed and anxious-looking youth, his headbent before the shrewd winds of the campus.Whereupon, the Lowlander recalled theprofessore narrative; and he rememberedthat strangled allusion to "Hastings."Consulting the University Register, hediscovered an Alfred Hastings, with threedegrees after his name, and the usuai listof scientific memberships.Well, then, the biographical professormust have meant, either that Hastings wasAlbert Z himself, or that he was thesurvivor of a struggle like Alberta. Itwould be wòrth while to seek out thisscientist, and see what he looked like.Hence, on a blustery day, the visit waspaid to that laboratory in which, said theRegister, Alfred Hastings, M.D., Ph.D.,Sc.D., was to be found.2.The building was filled with mysteriousacrid odors. Its stairs bore the imprintsof wet feet, together with a few stains thatwere evidently spots of blood. On eachfloor there were ranks of closed doors, outof which would pop, now and then, a manor woman in a dirty-white smock. One ofthem whistled a tune as he brandishedlightly some sort of laboratory instrument.No sound from behind the closed doors, —yes, a moaning, eerie and faint, as thoughcoming from the shadows overhead.Amid a growing smeli of disinfectants,the Lowlander climbed, seeking a door withHastings' card upon it. Found at last, thedoor proved to be locked. A knock, and thevisitor was admitted to a room not overly large and cluttered with animai cages, withtables and sinks. The place was partlylike the winter quarters of a menagerie, andpartly like a machine shop; but it smelledof menagerie. Against the bars of thecages were pressed the sensitive noses of theprisoners, and their eyes looked out with asoft, sluggish light of interest, and of anx-iety. It was to be seen that some of themwore bandages. So also did one or twodogs, which languidly arose, and snuffled atthe Lowlander's ankles."Don't mind them,,, grinned a tousled-headed youth in a smock. "Professor Hastings ? Over there." And he jerked a thumbtoward an inner cubby hole. It had spacefor a desk, a typewriter stand and a fìlingcase. At the desk sat a short, broad-shouldered being with thick eyebrows,smoking a pipe and frowning as his quickeyes followed the lines of a pamphlet. Heseemed like a tobacco-tanned and toughenedsort of man, with harsh furrows in his face,relieved by a kind of sunlight around theeyes. The coarse iron-grey hair above hisforehead was beginning to recede."Going to see Hastings, are you?" some-one had remarked. "He's hard to get nextto."And someone, deeming it smart, perhaps,to know about a man who never was seenat The Club, or any function, had toldabout him; had told about that great featof coordination and application which hadcome to be ranked a "discovery." It hadgone out to the world through the cautiousand unenthusiastic columns of the scientificpress; it had caused real excitement amonga few very keen scholars; it had broughtHastings a "full professorship." But as forfame; of the hundred million people in theUnited States, possibly 25,000 had seen inprint the name of Alfred Hastings, M.D.,Sc.D., and only about 2,500 remembered inwhat connection it had been mentioned.20SOJOURN ON A SUMMIT 21The work, added this informant, was notyet finished, for that matter; and probablyHastings himself would never be able tofinish it.3-If disturbed by such matte rs, Hastings didnot betray the fact. He smoked his shortblack pipe, frowned at his pamphlet, andthen looked up at the Lowlander."I've never seen you before," he seemed ,to say, "and why should I see you now?"Yet his expression was not unkind.At the moment there was about to happenacross the court, in view from Hastings*single window, a ceremony of a sort whichalways involved a small procession frombuilding to building. Amid a flurry of rain,they moved along, academically clad, — officiate, deans, trustees, the President, even a"speaker of the day" plucking at his flow-ing gown."Fm afraid I come at the wrong time,"said the Lowlander. "Perhaps you're goingto that meeting.""No," replied Hastings ; and, out of someimpulse, he added: "Haven't been to sucha function, not for— not since I got myPh.D., I guess."He nodded, rather than pointed, towardthe unoccupied chair."Fve met one or two other professors whofeel the same way," said the Lowlander,sitting down. "They'd rather play bridge,maybe.""Not my reason," blurted Hastings. "Inever felt like afrording a cap and gown.Borrowed the one when I took my doc-torate."Upon this he dried up, and threatenedto resumé his pamphlet.Well, here he sat; either Albert Z himself, or his parallel in history : A manwho had "been through hell for science,"who had a story to teli, and of whom it washopeless to expect that he would talk ofpersonal matters. The Lowlander did notwish to intrude either. Yet it was not dis-courteous to covet a few flashes from soextraordinary a mind as this one. And bynow the Lowlander had learned an in-fallible method of drawing out these silent men: Talk about the needs of their departments. Ah, that unfinished research,that new laboratory, those new "animaiquarters," or what not! There must besome such dream concealed in the smoke ofHasting's pipe.But he would not admit it. Well, inresponse to gentle suggestion, he did admitit slantwise. He said :"You know, this hole of mine seems a longway off from the centrai authority of theUniversity.""You never see the President?"He examined his pipe."Last year, I guess it was."And then he blurted:"Why should I bother him? He hasenough people to nag at him."Whether to adorn the sentence or not, hetook a final glance at the damp academicprocession, now about to enter the assemblybuilding. Perhaps his gaze rested for anextra moment upon the distant grey head ofthe President, as though resuming an ac-quaintance at long reach."Let the money go somewhere else," theLowlander though t he murmured. It wasan opening."What would you like to do with increased funds?"Hastings looked very reserved; but hereplied :"More space, more equipment, more payfor the youngsters. Fellowships! . . . .Do you know how they're needed?" Thehard grey eyes bored into the visitor's face."Know anything about how the youngerresearch men live?"The Lowlander, with a history like Hastings' own in mind, was taken aback by thequestion."Well, yes, IVe heard something aboutit. I've even been told of a certain caseBut this would not do.A pause. Hastings eyed the Lowlander;the Lowlander eyed Hastings. This par-ticular spot in the "high altitudes" did seemrather chilly. Casting about for an excuseto be there, the Lowlander found himselftalking about his Lowlands, their needof a better understanding of science, their23 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEgreat resources, so often wasted. And whynot, the Lowlander blundered on, why notmake a real eflort to awaken that teemingvaflley, below and beyond.the Summit, tothe value of work such as Hastings and hiskind carried on year after year? Wouldnot funds flow hither from the valley, andwould not the ill-rewarded workers inlaboratories reap not ohly glory, but er,better living condrtions?4-The speech had an unéxpected result.Hastings recrossed his legs, gazed out ofthe window for fully^ a minute, then shotat the Lowlander this:"FU teli you what II think. . . . . Idon't know exactly who you are, or why youcarne here, but you look as though youcould stand a little candor. . . . The outsideworld, as it's called, can never understandwhat we're after. Never ! Nor will it everreally care about it. The outside world —•hell!"He ran through his hair a hand as hairyand sensitive as a monkey's."Supposing it were possible to pack up thewhole of our researches in nice pills, put'em in bottles with a pink label, and adver-tise the stufi as a sure cure for colds, your'average man' might take notice. Those arethe things he can understand: Things thatcome quick, definite, canned, and prettilyornamented, and sold to him by cleversalesmanship." r The pipe glowed. "Butdo you think -your lay public — your realestators, insurance salesmen, and what not —are going to get interested in a problem thatis just a problem? Not in a million years.""But they say that the understanding ofbasic researches is steadily ""Bosh, my boy. Who says so? / saythat while there will always be a few peoplewho respect that sort of work, there will bemillions more who have no patience with it.I don't kick. People are people. But don'ttry to kid me about enlightening the world."'At this moment one of the wild-lookingyoung men in an apron thrust his head in atthe door, and remarked:"Fanny has passed out.""Damn!" exclaimed Hastings. He and the assistant stared at each other, not somuch in grief as in uncertainty; and theprofessor said :"Well, you'll have to fall back on oldNapoleon again.""O. K., sir," agreèd the assistant, with-drawing.Hastings almost twinkled at the Lowlander."Don't be alarmed. Those are dogs wewere speaking of. And talk about serviceto science; few human beings can beat Napoleon. For ten years he's absorbed serumsinto his hardy f rame ; he's been taken apartand put together again, and he'shealthier today than ever. Some day we'regoing to pension him . . . But as I wassaying — well, perhaps I was through.""You had just said that you didn't kickabout society being indifferent.""I don't kick? Why, of course, I do,Yes, I have grievances, but not becausefundamental work doesn't get the averageman excited." He hesitated a moment, thencontinued: "Recognition be hanged! ButI do get riled, Mr.— — -I don't believe Igot your name — when I think about myfamily.""Of course."He reddened a little."This is just for your ears : I want justice.I mean, I want my wife and kids to get it.Justice from everybody; justice from me,myself. And right now they don't get it*. . Would you pass that box of matchesThanks. ..."The pipe glowed again."May as well teli you how it is. . . .You see, my — my salary was fixed sometime ago, before living costs swelled so outof ali sanity. What I got kept us comfort-ably, at first. Well, costs went up ; salarydidn't. Same with a lot of other fellowshere. Down there, in what you cali thevalley, labor unions fought for more money,,and got it; big corporations saw what wasup, and increased the pay roll. Everybodygot more, except the people who most de-served to get it. The more brains, theless chance of a raise. People made ofbrains don't fight for money. And the damnSOJOURN ON A SUMMIT 23fool professor didn't know how tò fight any-how. ..."Well, now I bring home the same paycheck, and — you can see how it is. But howabout my wife ? She used to have a maid ;now we can't aflord one. Then,v she workedaround the house because she liked it, nowshe has to. . . . By God, her whole life isnothing but drudging to keep me and thetwo boys comfortable. What's the justiceof that?" His face became redder andredder — with anger. "Well, I can getkitchen help for her ; yes, if I sell the house.And if I sell the house, we'll be moving intoa fiat of about five rooms; we can't pay formore ; and in that fiat we shall lose the mostprecious thing a family can have — privacy,privacy !

He tappedout those words on the arm of his chair."That isn't much to ask of the world, is it?Just a room for each person. But the idioticworld isn't run like that ; won't let us havethat little commonplace thing we need. . .I can't relieve my wife of one burden with-out stacking her up against something worse.That's a beautiful state of things."He gloomed, and the Lowlander thoughtit over."But, professor, maybe — I mean, I'm sure— your wife is willing to sacrifice a lot soyou can do your kind of work. No doubtshe's happier "(If this were Lily, twenty years older,no doubt indeed ! )"She's got no business to be happy aboutit.

And the victory wasspoiled.A difference of a few "filthy dollars."5.The Lowlander rose to depart. Hastings,rising too, looked increasingly embarrassed.His harsh grey eyes seemed to appeal that"this should go no further" — and of courseit wouldn't. . At its full height, the figureof the scientist seemed shorter than average,a little bowed, somewhat crumpled andtouched with age. His clothes were re-spectable, and no more.Although he had won the distinction hesought, he would never look it.Although he had done much to preventthe agony of men, he had been rewardedonly by a swarm of anxieties.The laboratory where he was spendinghis life smelled to heaven.But there was this, thought the Lowlander as he passed out through the roomof sorrowful cages: Hastings, by his kindof life, had earned a place in the fellowshipof The Summit."Here's the top peak; the multitudebelowLive, for they can, there.This man decided not to Live butKnow "Research in the HumanitiesThe Orientai InstituteBy John DollardAssistant to the PresidentHERODOTUS concluded, afterjourneying into Egypt and seeingthe pyramids, that the Greek ac-counts of the beginnings of history couldhardly fe accurate, because the mightytombs of the Pharaohs indicated that menof a high order of genius had lived andbuilt in a past far beyond the view of thelocai mythologies of Greece. Herodotuswas undoubtedly one of the most widelytraveled and best informed men of his timeand probably one of the first westerners tohave a view of the majestic processes ofhistory which had been so long at workalong the banks of the ancient river Nile.Increasingly, since his time, the Nile Valleyand .the Egyptian civilization have becomesources of light on the development of earlyman, and so are objects of eager curiosi tyto modem men.The slow-swinging curtains of historyhave been parted, letting our eyes rest onalmost four thousand years of human history in the valley of the Nile, and showingus Greece and Rome as the heirs of a longcultural development. The white sunlightof Egypt shows man first domesticatinganimals, using the plough, grinding stoneimplements, making a copper chisel, sailinga boat, writing, controlling vast bodies ofmen under a state, organizing labor fora huge task, writing poetry, dreaming ofGod and a future life, insisting on ethicalideals of conduct, planning and daring toexecute great artistic tasks. Modem civilization rides high and firmly on the should-ers of these great discoverers of the earlyEgyptian period who somehow learned towrite, to temper metal, and to sail a boat.It might not have happened. But it didhappen in Egypt, and to Egypt we mustturn for these first records of our directcultural ancestors. It is fortunate that ithappened in the Near East, because in therainless Orient the records have endured, the clay tablets are stili found and arelegible, the temples and pyramids have with-stood sun and blowing sand, and the coffintexts, so richly wrought, may stili be réad.To interpret these ancient records, to telithe story of this process of cultural growthclearly and simply, is a task for a greatand expertly trained scholar. Such a manis James Henry Breasted, director of theOrientai Institute of the University ofChicago. Most of us cannot go to Egypt;few of us read Egyptian — we must see theprocess as a result of the painstaking research of the imaginative scholar. Ali whoare curious about where our civilizationfirst welled up from the confusion of primitive life are indebted to Mr. Breasted andhis Institute.Mr. Breasted has written intimate re-ports of his field work, so simple and clearthat nothing can be added here by way ofdescription. An excerpt follows: "TheOrientai Institute is a research laboratoryfor the investigation of the early humancareer, especially the transition from sav-agery to enlightened life; of the emergenceof civilized societies; and of the Orientaibackground of European and Americancivilization. The action of the Trusteesof the University of Chicago creating theOrientai Institute in the spring of 19 19 wasmade possible by the enlightened generosityof Mr. John D. Rockefeller, Jr.; and thesubsequent growth of the Institute has like-wise been due largely to the same generousdonor, but also to several appropriations bythe General Education Board and by giftsby Mr. Julius Rosenwald and others. Thissupport has made it possible to transformthe Department of Orientai Languages intoan investigative body — a research group towhose ranks have been added other special-ized groups of investigators having no teaching duties and appointed solely to carry ona series of related research projects in the24RESEARCH IN THE HUMANITIES 25vast field of early human development uponwhich modem human life has been built up.Geographically, this field is the ancientNear East, where the Institute has dis-patched six expeditions and is now stilimaintaining five. The Institute's perma-nent headquarters building in Egypt is atLuxor» In Asia its headquarters buildingis at Armageddon in Palestine. The ad-ministrative center of the Institute inAmerica is Haskell Orientai Museum atthe University of Chicago, where theoriginai monuments and documents fromthe field are housed and studied and homeresearch projects carried on."The purpose of the Orientai Instituteis to contribute to the understanding ofhuman life by furnishing a fuller knowledge of the processes and stages of the longdevelopment by which we have become whatwe are. This purpose involves us in thetask of recovering a great group of lostcivilizations in the Near East where Western civilization arose."The ultimate result of such researchesas these should be a new account of humanbeginnings and a history of the origins ofcivilization and the earliest civilized societies, based on a fuller knowledge than hasbeen available before."The Nile Valley, protected from the icesheets of the north by the Mediterranean,flooded annually by the rising of the river,offered a fertile shelter to primitive man —an opportunity to settle on land in a goodclimate, to provide against periodic starva-tion by cultivating and storing crops, toform stable communities, to liberate himself in part from his ancient personal obliga-tions of daily defense and food getting, andto make a beginning on what we know as"civilization." He used that opportunity,settled down, and slowly he formed communities, which increasingly liberated himfrom the savage struggle for survival. Hisculture, so developed, spread slowly fromthe Nile Valley to other orientai peoples,slowly trickled by underground channelsand appeared here and there in the NearEast, nourishing peoples who never knewthe Nile, or its first settled dwellers. Thestudy of early man, therefore, takes the investigator far afield from Egypt, as faras the Persian Gulf and the Black Sea0The modera field investigations of theOrientai Institute cover this vast area, fivekey centers being taken as the nuclei of theinvestigations.Here are the projects now actively inprocess of development from the OrientaiInstitute as a center:The Coffin Texts Project is a study ofthe pen-and-ink writings on the inner sur-faces of coffins, and reveals the development of the notion that the ethical qualityof a man's life here on earth is of con-sequence hereafter.The Epigraphic Expedition is studyingthe great tempie of Medinet Habu atancient Thebes, opposite modem Luxor.This tempie, dated in the twelfth centuryB.c., is literally covered with inscriptionswhich are being accurately recorded andpreserved against the imminent destructionof the tempie by naturai and human forces.Among other things, the inscriptions teli ofthe advance on Egypt of the waves of highlycivilized ./Egeans who were driven fromtheir Mediterranean islands by the incom-ing Greek barbarians.The Prehistoric Survey is a study ofprehistoric man in Egypt, of the severalhundred thousand years before civilized manappeared. The trail of implements, tools,and weapons can be followed with the helpof the geological history of the river Nile,which offers these records in related familygroups in strata which can be dated by thegeologist.The Megiddo Expedition is excavatingthe famous and historically significantmound of Armageddon. This mound wasthe seat of a series of ancient fortressesand was of great strategie significance because of its location between the two lead-ing centers of Orientai civilization — Egyptin the West, and Babylonia and Assyria inthe East. The records of succeeding citiesare stratified in the mound much after themanner of geological strata, and are readyto illuminate a long period of orientaihistory.The Hittite Expedition is exploring theHittite cities of Asia Minor and has already26 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINElocated fifty-five cities of Hittite peoples,heretofore unknown, and altogether un-explored. Since at least one of these peoplesspeaks an Indo-European language, theHittites are probably racially connectedwith us, and the investigation of theirculture is of special interest.The foreign field work of the Instituteis dramatic and significant, but parallel toit, and equally significant, is the utilizationof field material which is made possiblethrough the assistance of the home organiza-tion at the Orientai Institute in Chicago.The home staff not only interprete andorganizes the tangible results of field effortsbut carries on as well many projects in theorientai field for which the materials arealready available in the form of manu-scripts. The home office consists of a staffof experienced orientalists working with agroup of graduate students. This partnership of investigator and student is particu-larly significant and characteristic of theOrientai Institute. Students workingunder experienced scientists not only complete their own advanced training as juniorinvestigators, but by their participationthemselves deliver scholarly results of value.It must be remembered that these areadvanced students. In the main, they comewith their preliminary training completed,reading the ancient language or languageswith which they will work, and they re-ceive their graduate training while actuallyengaged on an important task. On thePeshitta project for instance, which is de-scribed herewith, ten students are( now working for their advanced degrees, and at thesame time contributing to the productionof an exact version of the Old Testament.This highly significant "learning by doing"principle has been applied to ali teachingactivities of the Orientai Institute.The activities of the home staff and theirgraduate students now center around threeprojects. The Assyrian dictionary, theKalila and Dimna studies, and the Peshittaproject. Of the Assyrian Dictionary Mr.Breasted says: "In studying ancient docu-ments in a language which modem scholarsare just beginning to read, the investigatorinevitably meets new words which no scholar has ever seen before and which hedoes not understand. The immense volumeof cuneiform documents has entirely outrunthe ability of any one scholar to go throughthem and study the new words. The greatMurray dictionary of the English languageat Oxford has demonstrated the fact that alidictionaries must be written on the basisof 'a series of quotations ranging from thefirst known occurrence of the word to thelatest.'"In undertaking a complete Assyriandictionary, now so seriously needed, theOrientai Institute therefore planned fromthe start to make its 'series of quotations'complete, that is, to file every known ex-ampie of a word with the entire passagecontaining it. Under the direction of Dr.D. D. Luckenbill [deceased since Mr.Breasted wrote this], aided by a staff madeup chiefly of our own former students, thedictionary files now contain some 600,000alphabetically organized cards hearing thesequotations. The completion of the workwill require a number of years; but wheneventually issued as the first Babylonian-Assyrian dictionary based on ali the knowncuneiform documents, it will enable us toread with much greater confidence thanbefore the vast mass of Western Asiaticsources, which reveal to us the origins ofmuch in our own life — not least the every-day forms of business procedure, includingeven the whole idea of credit and writtencertificates of value."Mr. Breasted describes the Kalila andDimna studies as follows : "Tales in whichhuman life and relationship are shifted intothe animai world for purposes of caricatureor of instructive moralizing are of enormousage in the ancient Orient. They existedin Egypt as far back as the Empire (1580-1150 B.c.). In cuneiform literature of Assyrian age animai tales have also survived.These earlier orientai animai fables alreadydisplay the 'framework,' which makes themmore attractive to the hearer and lendsweight to the moral lesson to be conveyed.The collection of such tales, known in itsArabie form under the title 'Kalila andDimna' (the names of two talking jackals),has come down to us from ancient IndiaRESEARCH IN THE HUMANITIES 27through many translations. Sir ThomasNorth, who made the translation of Plu-tarch's Lives used by Shakespeare, issuedthe earliest English translation of theseanimai stories in 1570. Quaint versionsof these identical tales have also reached usthrough the slave markets of Africa in theUncle Remus stories of our own South. Inthe summer of 1926 Dr. Martin Sprenglingwas commissioned by the Institute to followup manuscripts of these tales in Europe andthe Orienf. His mission was very success-ful; and the Institute now possesses thou-sands of photographs, representing manythousand pages of such manuscripts, whichare enabling Dr. Sprengling to study thehistory of this important literature and prepare a final Arabie text."The third of the home projects, thePeshitta project, Mr. Breasted sees in thisway: "The English translations of our OldTestament are based on Hebrew manuscripts which are known to contain manyancient errors in scribal copying. One wayto correct these is to study the ancienttranslations of the Hebrew, e.g., into Greekor Syriac. The ancient Syriac translationis called the 'Peshitta.' The text of thePeshitta has never been carefully deter-mined on the basis of ali existent evidence.One valuable means of establishing the textof the Peshitta is the study of a Syriac com-mentary on it called the 'Storehouse ofMysteries,' written by Barhebraeus in thethirteenth century of our era. The manuscripts of this work, some twenty in num-ber, are now scattered over Asia, Europe, and America. The Orientai Institute isfurnishing Dr. W. C. Graham and Dr.Martin Sprengling, who are jointly incharge of these Peshitta studies, with photographs of the needed manuscripts, andit is hoped that they may contribute to amore correct Hebrew text of the Old Testament. The only two manuscripts of thiswork in America are in the Semitic Museumof Harvard University."Thus the Kalila project, which in theEast represents largely the Moslem world,and the Peshitta project, which scrutinizesthe Christians, complèment each other andform a larger whole to carry the investigations of the Near East from beginningsand ancient times down to these modemtimes. And because of many living sur-vivals in ideas, institutions, folk tales, thepicture of the origins of civilization in theNear East can never be a complete one,unless it be taken thus, as a whole.The blank pages of the book of historybefore the Greeks and the Romans areslowly being fiìled in from these recordsin stone, on clay and papyrus, so that thedramatic story of the orientai origins ofmodem civilization will finally be toldclearly and in detail.This Institute is perhaps the best, butby no means the only, example of whatindividuai support and encouragement ofa project will do when combined with thegenius of university scholarship. It maybe called the full realization of what hu-manistic scholars in other fields hope tosee themselves creating for mankind.bOOK.<V2Charioteers and SalesgirlsFive Books in Various FieldSj Just Puhlished by the University of Chicago PressWHEN a human being is in a tightplace — when neither impulse norhabit can help matters, he resorts to ideas.Men in predicamene have used ideas ( i )religiously, as a guide to a higher realm ofpersons and powers, (2) sesthetically, asthings beautiful in themselves, (3) scientif-ically, as a weapon to enslave nature, (4)socially, to make the world a more friendlyplace — or (5) philosophically.What four American philosophers haveto teach us about the first four of these waysof life, and what we can deduce, with theiraid, as the philosophic way that turns alithe others to their proper uses, is the subjectof The Philosophic Way of Life (234 pages,$2.50) by T.

And when the author ofsuch a history is an alumnus of the University of Chicago it stands to reason thathe will write down how Chicago has grownwith its University — and how the University of Chicago has grown with its city.This author is Henry Justin Smith, '98,managing editor of the Chicago DailyNews, contributor of Sojourn on a Summit,now appearing in the Magazine and, notso long ago, director of public relations forthe University of Chicago. Strictly speak-ing, Mr. Smith is a co-author, for "Chicago;A History of Its Reputation" was writtenby him with Lloyd Lewis. Mr. Lewis isa graduate of Swarthmore, but long aChicagoan and a resident in the Universitycommunity. He is a contributor to themagazines, once a Chicago newspaper manand the author of "Myths After Lincoln,"a history popular among the spring pub-lications."Chicago; A History of Its Reputation"(published by Harcourt, Brace & Co.) isnot, it is said, a mere tour of the city anda list of facts and figures. Mr. Smithand Mr. Lewis attempt to explain Chicago— quite a difficult job these days.

Early in the book one finds RushMedicai College which, chartered in 1837,was the first college west of Cincinnati.Then comes the old University of Chicago,built on land at 34th and Cottage Grovegiven by Stephen A. Douglas. In 1871this first University had "the best andlargest refracting telescope in the world,"but despite this advantage the earlier University of Chicago perished in the Eighties.But with the Nineties and the World'sFair the historians find a new Universityof Chicago, the idea of William RaineyHarper who was helped by such famousChicagoans as Marshall Field and Silas B.Cobb. The unostentatious opening of theUniversity — on ten acres of sand lot thathad so recently been covered with chick-weed and tin cans — is described by Mr.Smith and Mr. Lewis.Often throughout this new history theUniversity of Chicago is mentioned. Thebeauties of its buildings are listed amongChicago's most notable architecturalachievements. The fame of such Chicagoans as Michelson, Chamberlain and Coulteris set down in citing the cultural advanceof the city.And there is an exceedingly interestingstory told of Silas B.

In the i83o's Cobb left Vermont"for the West," but on reaching Buffalofound that his pocket had been picked ofali but seven dollars.

His conclusion that Chicagois "the one place in the United States whereone is actually aware of the presence ofungenerosity, ili will, and malice" wasbound to annoy his entertainers. My protest, however, will be directed not at hisinteresting, if provocative, conclusion, butat his purpose and the method by which hehas carried it out. "It was not only mychief, but my only concern," he writes, "toget into touch with the genius loci of theplace visited; for ali the success of mylecturing — I mean ali the success I care for :that is, my succeeding in giving vital im-pulses — depended on that contact." To putit more simply, the Count was intent prima-rily on catching the essence, the spirit of thecities he visited. The question is whetherthis intention was a legitimate one, andwhether he chose a sound method for ac-complishing it.The assumption underlying this chiefconcern of his is that it is possible for a manto isolate the spirit of a city, great or small. harbor — the captain demanded three dollarsmore for the passage.For three days, while the other passengerswere taken ashore in canoes and boats,Silas B. Cobb was kept a prisoner on board.At last a chance acquaintance loaned himthe three dollars, and he carne to the muddyvillage which later was to list him as animportant citizen and to whose Universityhe gave the building that bears his name.This initial assumption is psychologicallyunsound, for it involves attaining the essence of an infinitely complicated phenom-enon, the resolving of a myriad facts andvalues into a conclusion devoid of self-contradiction. What, indeed, is involvedin knowing a modem city? In the firstplace, the acquisition of the mere physicalfacts about a city is an unending process;a purely physical or statistical acquaintanceimplies the experience and activity of years.To combine the information of the postman,the bootlegger, the social statistician, thehobo in the alley, the policeman, the restau-ranteur, the politicai scientist, the artist,the reporter, is beyond the capacity of anysingle individuai. And if the factual knowledge of a city is beyond human power, howmuch more difficult is the indispensableprocess of spiritual evaluation, since thisdepends on the individual's temperament,power of abstraction, intuition, and uncon-scious attitudes towards the subject of histhought.

Millett,Assistant Professor of English.IN MY OPINION 3*an elementary generalization about a city,without being unsound or absurd.And if the Count's intention is in itselfillegitimate, how much falser is his method.To spend a day or so in a strange city, tobe lunched and dined by officiai entertainers,to drive about in a proffered limousine, toencounter the slightly silly people who flockto a celebrity's lectures, is experience alto-gether inadequate for even the most reliableintuition. His method is similar to thatin vogue during the Great War, when per-sons in authority, usually politicians, pre-tended to be able to teli the waiting worldfrom day to day what England, France, orMontenegro was thinking. The anthro-pomorphizing element in such a processcould hardly go uncriticized in a less hysteri-cal period than wartime. What England,France, Russia, or America thought wasactually only what the politicai party inpower deemed it wise to announce to thepapers. Such officiai opinion naturally didnot take into account, until it was forced todo so, the infinite shadings of opinion inother politicai or non-political groups. Totalk about the English or French attitudetoward naval limitations or prohibition isto come to the verge, and usually to gobeyond the verge, of saying nothingorotundly. It is possible, of course, togeneralize, but the validity of the resultis seriously qualified by the limitations ofone's facts and the sensitiveness of one'scriticai faculty.But generalizing about a nation or a cityis an amusing parlor game, much easier andno more important than contract bridge.It is a game immensely seductive to the half-educated or to the professional wiseacrelike Keyserling. It is a game one isn't aboveplaying oneself. It is amusing, for instance,to generalize about Boston. In my time,I have come to three fairly distinct con-clusions about that historic but not quiteextinct phenomenon, To my countrifiedCiiildhood, Boston was an entity, far-off anddivine, a remote Mecca to which one wasexcitedly conveyed to hear the HungarianBoy's Band at Keith's (Family Vaudeville)Theatre, and to see the rows of red-cheekedGilbert Stuarts in the Art Museum. In my earlier midwestern period, it seemed agrubby, down at the heel place, which re-tired for the night at eight o'clock, an in-significant suburb of the transcendent gloryof Manhattan. Only this summer, I dis-covered a third Boston, with the help of afriend who suggested that it was an ad-mirable substitute for a trip to England.From a point of vantage beyond the Charles,the rows of warm red brick, white-case-mented houses climbing Beacon Hill, thesturdy bar-like intimacies of Thompson'sSpa, the encrusted jewel of Mrs. Gardiner'spalace, the civilized rurality of the Fenway,created the most winsome image of that cityI had ever entertained. But then, theMayor banned Strange ìnterlude, and thelovely image almost faded. Not, however,until I had tried to reconcile the dimGeorgian beauty of Boston and its squeam-ishness with regard to modem art. Thehypothesis involves the misalliance of thesurvivors of Puritanism and its IrishCatholic politicians. One unintelligent setsupports the other in its suppressive reac-tions. I seem to recali that most of themembers of the "New England group"lived, not at Boston, but at Concord. It isperhaps fitting that now it is Quincy ("TheHome of the Presidente") which finds ashelter for Strange InterludiIt is even more amusing and dangerousto generalize about Chicago, and mucheasier, since I know nothing, or almost nothing about it. But every one who lives inChicago and leaves it is forced to make uphis mind about it, for the New Yorker, theEnglishman, the Frenchman he encounters,has ready for his comment an unrecogniz-ably garish and graphic picture of the place.Everyone wants to know if it is as bad asthe papers say. I can only answer, "Notthat I know of. That Chicago is not myChicago. But then, I live in a monasteryon the Midway, and never get nearer theLoop than University College." Seriously,I cannot agree with Count Keyserling thatthe physical surroundings of Chicago "areas beautiful as they can possibly be." Itmay be easier to build a city on a prairiethan to jam one, like Pittsburgh, into apoint where two rivers have worn down the32 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcliffs, but the prairie terrain is bound to beslightly depressing. Chicago's only aes-thetic naturai assets are the Lake and theriver, and it is greatly to her glory that sheis at last doing right, on a tremendous scale,by both these elements. But the otherbeauties of Chicago — the sweeping boulevard, the bridges, the seclusion of theWooded Island, the rose gardens, thewillowy meadows of Washington Park, thelong lagoons, the quiet gray quadrangles ofthe University, are man-made. Likewisethe superbly defiant towers of the Loop,the glittering facade of Michigan Boulevard, are as thrilling a spectacle as man hascreated in the New World. But it is onlyan earnest of what the future will bring.For one falls back on what one of mystudents called a "bland generality," —namely, that the spirit of Chicago is theTHERE are those who haven't scratchedtheir ancestral ticket since 19 io andwho stili subscribe to the grim theory ofbrimstone theology . . . there are thosewho don't care . . . and the small minoritywho think for themselves.

Mr. Lippmanndoes not find it necessary to adopt the black-snake maneuvering of Billy Sunday, Mc-Pherson dramatics nor even the acid-throw-ing of Mencken. Lippmann versatility isa thing to wonder at whether presentedfrom the broad sweep of Fosdick reasoningor from the barrel-top horizon of theaverage fundamentalist. spirit of a pioneer society, energetic, pro-digious with plans and dreams, consciousof a possible expansion beyond that of anyother city in America. And it shares thedefects of a pioneer society: its appallinglack of leisure, its killing Gospel of Work,its egocentric arrivistes, its callousness insocial contacts, its thick-skinned insensitive-ness to individuai values. But with aliits short-comings, with its second-ratedramatic fare, its self-adulatory literarycliques, its banal "popular" opera, one wouldnot wish to be anywhere else in America.For here one feels, boulevards will sweepwider and wider, towers soar higher andhigher, and crime grow bigger and better.Chicago is the center of the American stage,and one wouldn't give up without a strugglehis seat in the academic second balcony.No one avoids show-off pronouncementsmore than Lippmann but who will refute —or even attempt it — the truth which he ob-serves — ". . . the religion of humanity isutterly unacceptable to the man who hasto ride the subway during the rush hour"?This work has accomplished, I think,what Mary Baker Eddy attempted. Thatgood lady apparently died happy in thethought that she had forged the infalliblekey to the Scriptures (though Heavenknows it scrapes gratingly enough in thelock).

The janitor finds him in hisoffice when he unlocks the massive doorsof Harper along about seven in the morning— and on many an evening he leaves thepresident at work when the doors are closedon the last departing librarian.The new president is on the job. Onemight think that he had been properly in-itiated, but such is not the case. The formaiinitiation will take place on November 19when, for the first time, the University ofChicago will instali a president with ali thepomp and ceremony befitting such an oc-casion. The installation ceremony will beheld in the University Chapel at 1 1 o'clock on the morning of November 19. Withhundreds of delegates from educational in-stitutions and foundations, with facultymembers in caps and gowns and officiaialumni representatives in their best bibs andtuckers the academic procession will be animpressive spectacle.

Morganstern '20, J. D., '22ON THE basis of expectations, thepresent football season is already asuccess. The chief item to the credit ofDirector Stagg and the team is a 13 to 7victory over Indiana, although the openingdate saw Beloit beaten 27 to o and LakeForest turned back, 9 to 6. Last year, itwill be recalled, the team did not win aconference engagement. So there was greatrejoicing in the stands after the Indianagame, although the coaches were confidentthat Chicago could win.While one Big Ten victory does notmake a season, there is reason to believethat the 1929 team will be a creditable one.Various factors contribute to the improve-ment. Some of the men with whom theOld Man has been working patiently fora year or two years have now reached auseful stage, and some new men, chieflysophomores, have been added in key posi-tions. Mendenhall, the veteran back, andCushman, tackle, the only sophomore towin a letter in 1928, were lost by in-eligibility, and Straus, center, went toHarvard. But the situation as to in-eligibilities was considerably better this yearthan last. The ili-fortune that houndedthe team in 1928 seems to have been lost;there have been as yet (rap, rap, rap) noserious injuries.But the most noticeable change has beenin the spirit of the players. The squadthat was demoralized last year has almostcompletely disappeared through graduation.This year's crew knew that it faced a hardjob, but it did not believe that it was quiteas bad as most people thought. Theplayers are encouragingly willing to go outand play football with abandon. Theyseem to like the game, and they practicewith interest and intentness, and they gointo a game to bump and be bumped. This spirit is shown by the decisive tackling theyhave done, and the refreshing earnestnesswith which they roam about the field oninterference. The interference and block-ing are easily the best that has been seenin years."Buck" Weaver, veteran guard, seemsfinally to have found himself, and is nowusing his 236 pounds very effectively atcenter. The guards, Cassie, a "C" man;Brislen, who has developed; Horwitz, asophomore, are good. Horwitz so far hasbeen phenomenal, though he weighs but168. Ericson, who was playing capably atthe end of 1928, got eligible the day beforethe Indiana game and should be very good.Froberg, a veteran, and Bunge, a transferfrom Dartmouth, are regarded as theregular tackles, but Trude, a sophomore,is right in their class. Morris and Sonderbyare used for reserves. Capt. Kelly has beenrugged and burly at one end; he weighs196 this year, and the responsibilities ofleadership have added to his value. Afight is developing at the other end, withCowley, a sub half last year, challengingthe veteran Jersild, whose one handicap ishis reedy build. Jersild perhaps is thekeener player, but when Cowley hits a manhe stays down. Wien, a sophomore, lookspromising, and Boesel, a 19 year old playerwho is just starting to mature, will beuseful. So far, Abbott, one of the regularsubs of last season, has been injured orsick.The line is a big husky one, and it isplaying good football. Behind the line isa big backfield, with the best combinationat present probably Bluhm, Van . Nice,Tempie, and Knudson. Bluhm, who neverplayed any high school football, has shownunexpected ability as a ball carrier in hisfinal year, and his experience gives him a36ATHLETICS 37shade over Paul Stagg, the Old Man's son,at quarter. Paul never played high schoolfootball, either, but in his debut againstBeloit was confident and effective, and heled the team against Indiana in the firsthalf. Van Nice, stili another with no highschool experience, carne back this seasonsome eighteen pounds heavier, around 200,lacking a little of his old speed, but pickingup power. Tempie, a sophomore from OakPark, is a real find, and Knudson, hardlymentioned last year, is hitting like a ton ofbricks, This combination has no "freerunner," and it has no first class punter,though Tempie is improving. But it hasa wallop through the line, and it backsup a line with conviction. Van Nice is agood rifle-shot passer; Bluhm can pass ac-ceptably, and Stagg also can throw them.So far, Walter Burgess, who was late in'Way back in 1899 the Chicago eleven,led by the redoubtable Walter Scott Kennedy, won the final game of the seasonagainst Wisconsin and became championsof the West.Ànd was this nineteenth century gonfalonwon without effort? Nay, nay, my country-men. Just glance at the opponents fromwhom the men of the Maroon wrested thecrown of victory: Notre Dame, Iowa,Cornell, Oberlin, Pennsylvania, Purdue,Northwestern, Minnesota, Brown and Wisconsin, with games against Knox, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dixon andBeloit thrown in to make a well-roundedschedule — fourteen bruising games in which407 points were garnered by Chicago, whileher opponents were accumulating a grand becoming eligible, has not been able to play,but he will fit in as a regular. Like theothers, he is a slasher. Roland MacKenzie,a sophomore looked good in the openinggame, but has been hurt since; he is auseful battering rara. Kanne, anothersophomore, has been used a lot because ofhis punting, but he is not yet a good ballcarrier or defensive man. Wattenberg, asenior; Heywood, a junior, and Adams, asophomore, have value, but will not beregulars. Wattenberg would gain fame asa marvelous passer, were it not for thèhandicap of poor eyesight.This team will win no conference cham-pionship, but it is going to be hard to beateThe victory over Indiana gave it confidencethat was needed, and somewhere about itscollective persons it has concealed one firstclass jolt for an unsuspecting of 28. In Chicago's football historythe team of '99 should be listed among theimmortals.At the cali of Captain Kennedy and"The Old Man/' who wasn't so old in'99, the members of the team are returningto the campus to live again those days ofthirty years ago, and, over the banquetboard, to play again that old time scheduleof fourteen games.To a man the team of '99 will be onStagg Field on the afternoon of November9 to watch the Chicago team of '29 battlethe Badgers.And in the words of one Amos AlonzoStagg, "If this year's Varsity isn't goingwell, I will put the '99 team in on the see-ond half.""Back to the Midway5' Come the Champions of '99The Old Guard Will Gather on November 9 to Celebrate Its Champìonshipof 30 Years Ago.NEWS OF THEQUADRANGLESBy John P.

I want to find outsome more about them. Can people whodon't know anything about painting findout about them at the Art Institute?"Recounting this to Leach, Epstein wenton: "That gave me an idea. Why nothave an institute that would, while provid-ing art instruction for university students,likewise be of cultural benefit to ali thepeople of the middle west.

The victorious Roundheads had repu-diated the "Divine Right o£ Kings," and HisMost Christian Majesty Charles I was to bebeheaded. Often in the past had nobles andarchbishops plotted, assassinated, kidnapped,but never before had Briti'sh commoners in-dicted their King for High Treason, tried himin open court, sentenced him to death. Puritanswhispered scared prayers. Cavaliers cursed,vowed swift, gory vengeance.Oliver Cromwell, almost the last to be con-vinced that Charles* death was necessary andhence the immutable design of Providence, hadsigned the death warrant. As TIME, had itbeen published February 1, 1649. would havereported the event:. . . . Grim guards, gentlemen Roundheads, strode inat dawn to wake the King. Rising, His Majesty donnedtwo shirts "So I may not seem to tremble," hesaid shrewdly, bravely. After cruel, nerve-shatteringdelays Charles I was led through subdued crowds toa scaffold set up outside the Windows of his own ban-quet chamber in Whitehall. Thousands had come togape, including most of the Roundhead leaders. butOliver Cromwell was not there.Standing fearlessly erect on the scaffold, Charles Ilooked out over the pikes of Roundhead soldiers,glimpsed a shuffling, uneasy throng in which there must be stili some loyal subjects, tried to reach themwith his voice. The crowd murmured, strained tohear. Soldiers clinked their weapons, making it im-possible for the royal words to carry far. Few heardHis Majesty say: "For the people, truly, I desiretheir liberty and freedom, as much as any body whom-soever ! But .... their liberty and freedom consistsin having government, in those laws by which theirlives and goods may be most their own. It is not theirhaving a share in the government; that is nothingpertaining to them. A subject and a sovereign areclear different things."It was two o'clock. Charles by the Grace of GodKing, Defender of the Faith, took off his coat anddoublet, looked up a last time at the English sky,spoke briefly to Bishop Juxon, and lay down fulllength with his head on the block. The crowd swayed,surged upon the soldiers. But pikes and swords cowedloyal hearts. Charles Stuart prayed a moment, wavedhis hand as a sign that he was ready.It was two o'clock, four minutes. Whirling highand shimmering in the sunlight the axe descended,elove. With gibbering pride the black-masked exe-cutioner held high a dripping royal head, his first. Body and head were united later; reposed thatnight in the once royal banquet hall, guai*ded by twonobles, one the Earl of Southampton. A black shroudup to the chin hid where the axe had f alien. Candlesburned by the head.After midnight, while the watchers sat sunk inmelancholy revery, a figure rnufHed in a dark cloakquìetly entered the hall, paced slowly toward thebody, stood looking down at the face of Charles I.Turning on heel at last the figure stalked away, mut-tering "Cruel necessity!" It was Oliver Cromwell...Cultivated Americans, impatient with cheap sensationalism and windy bias,turn increasingly to publications edited in the historical spirit. These publications, fair dealing, vigorously impartial, devote themselves to the public wealin the sense that they report what they see, serve no masters, fear no groups.TIME77te Weekly Newsmagazine58 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE>o8 — William Leary is Dean of the LawSchool at the University of Utah.'o8 — Gasper Edwards is practicing lawat Oklahoma City, with offices in theSecurity Building.'og — James Pinckney Pope is practicinglaw in Boise, Idaho, when his duties asMayor of Boise allow him any time forpractice.
