WAIL OF A C MANPerhaps this might best be called "Another Wail of An Old 'C Man," for itdoes amount to that, following hardupon the heels of a most humiliatingfootball season to Chicago alumni, onewhich in many similar groups would bedisgraceful. The fault obviously does notlie with this year's Maroon players, atleast not because of their lack of courage or effort in any sense. Anyone whohas watched them play this season, as Idid against Michigan and College of thePacific, just cannot help but realize thatthey were simply utterly outclassed andoutmanned. All their courage and "oldcollege' ' try was not enough in this dayof good teams everywhere.In the game against the truly "GrandOld Man's" small college eleven fromthe Coast the sentiment of "C" men generally was on his side — but hardly, perhaps to the extent of watching a Chicago team go down under a big scorebefore a team virtually unknown inthese parts, at least until Mr. Staggwent there, despite our deep reverencefor him as man and coach.What is the answer, men of Chicago?There must be one. We know full wellwithout need to mention several recentcases, that others have found it afteryears in the athletic doldrums. Whycannot we?I accept the onus, to some folks, ofbeing an old-fashioned "grad" who'dlike to see his Alma Mater put a teamon the field which could give a good account of itself, whether or not it winsa majority of games, one which neverappears absurdly weak against most ofits natural rivals — a team in other wordssuch as Mr. Stagg gave us for 40 years.This is by no means a "fire the coach"plea either, for Mr. Shaughnessy isprobably doing as good a job as mostcoaches could do under the circumstances. He equips his teams with spectacular formations and plays but apparently he just hasn't the necessarymaterial to execute them over the period of a whole game.Everyone else in the Conference, notto mention football observers generally,"feel sorry" for us and continually askwhy we do not withdraw from the Conference — and we all are aware of thisfeeling. Certainly we should do thisvery thing soon, if athletic inferiority isour choice. After all, why should westubbornly insist upon remaining in theathletic "big league" with a minorleague club?The Chicago athletic tradition, together with the University's prestige,should really preclude our compromisingthe issue by entering competition with Originality in GiftsNAVAJO INDIAN RUGSDistinctive — Decorative — DurableColor, Warmth, and Beauty for college rooms, homes, or clubs.Handwoven by Navajo Women entirely with wool from their ownsheep.No two alike— Prices $3.00 to $50.00.EVON Z. VOGT '06Vogt Ranch, Ramah, New Mexicominor teams and so probably we shouldbe good sports and go intramural completely before all of our first class foessimply refuse outright to schedule us. Itwould seem a logical course, for thehandwriting is clearly on the wall — inbig letters.Does the answer lie with the presentUniversity administration? Or is it thatwe alumni should take over at last, ifwe can? Without kidding ourselves, weall know that an organized effort mustbe made and adequately financed, prob-aby by the alumni, in order to attractand finally maintain even moderatelysuccessful football teams. Call it proselyting or what you will, but that's it.There is no other way. The time hascome to "take it or leave it" and so whynot decide now, once and for all, tomove in one direction or the other ?For many years I have lived awayfrom Chicago and so have formed myopinions from the press, magazine articles and numerous University mailingpieces about the present University ofChicago administration. I naturallygather and am proud of the fact we are,as we were, a great university in manyfields of intellectual development — butso also are Harvard, Columbia, Yaleand Princeton, as the University's ownmailing pieces clearly indicate. Theyalso have football teams which at leastmake creditable showings against a majority of their opponents.We easily rank with these in endowment, educational prestige and whatnotand so why is it that first class intercollegiate athletics are treated like leprosy by us — and favorably by contemporaries as highly respected as ourselves?Perhaps I speak only for a minoritygroup in asking an answer to this —from President Hutchins or our Alumni Association, but I suspect there isquite a number who would like to knowthe answer, and above all, to rectify thesilly situation we have now.W. E. Bates, '23.Detroit, Mich.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 3PORT OF MISSING MENTo the Editor :Thank you very much for your reprint from Fortune Magazine.This is the first communication of anycharacter which I have received fromThe University of Chicago since graduating there in 1913. At that time, withseveral hundred others, I was instructedby the Marshal to remove chewing gum,if any, from my mouth and to bow andthank President Judson upon receivingmy diploma.I again bow and thank your mosthonorable Alumni Council for the newhonor which you have bestowed uponme after twenty-five years.It is possible that I could have givenyou some suggestions, twenty-five yearsago, on how to run The University ofChicago, but Time has healed some ofmy wounds and blunted my youthfulenthusiasm.However, it is indeed gratifying toknow that a young man of ideas, by thename of Hutchins, has had an opportunity to indicate some of the thingswhich, in earlier days, I thought werewrong with our educational institutionsand, particularly, with The Universityof Chicago.Regardless of the battle betweenMetaphysics and Metabolism and itsultimate outcome, I am satisfied that theideas of Dr. Hutchins will result notonly in advantage to The University ofChicago but to all other educational institutions.Irving G.

HUTCHINSON1 PhD "27, Associate Professor of American HistoryTWENTY years ago today this community and thewhole country hailed with fervent enthusiasm andthankfulness the news that the Armistice had beensigned. To the men and women on this campus, as toAmericans everywhere, the Armistice signified victory,the consummation of the nation's hopes, and the opportunity to gain for many peoples what had been so wellworth fighting for. If the future held disillusionment;if the celebration occasioned by the close of hostilitiesshould have waited upon the conclusion of the peace,these facts do not make the ideals of the war years lessworthy or take from those men who gave their all thelustre of their sacrifice.The veterans of 1918 are not apologetic in 1938. Theideals of America went with them, to the war. Theywere not aware then, and they will not concede now,that they were merely the puppets of corporate wealth.They fought for what they knew to be right and theybelieve that when the people of the United States repudiate those purposes, they will have turned their backsupon their entire history.For these ideals, so persuasively formulated by President Wilson, were not the invention of the moment.They needed no weight of propaganda to make themconvincing. They were a part of America itself. Toinsure the right of self-determination, the advancementof democracy, the safety of free governments, and a permanently peaceful world, had been the mission of Americans for well over a century, although their action nowand again might warrant a momentary doubt as to thesincerity of their faith. "American purposes," saidPresident Wilson, "are going to be tested by the purposes of mankind and not by the purposes of national .ambition. " Today, these are still America's articles offaith.With those men and women who applaud these goalsbut who protest against armed strife as a method ofreaching them, many of the veterans of the World Warwill not seriously differ. Knowing the meaning of war,they wish devoutly to avoid it, but they know too thatif these principles are worth living for, these principlesand the state which embodies them- are worth defendingwhen assailed. Loving a land which for more thanthree centuries has symbolized the hope of a better lifeto millions of people the world over, they cannot see* Address at the Armistice Day ceremonies in the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. eye to eye with men who would consent supinely toyield it and all for which it stands to the first comerwho brandishes a sword. To do so would betray atrust — a trust freighted with institutions and ideals asprecious to them as to their fathers; institutions andideals for which no superior substitute has yet beenfound either by Americans or by their neighbors overseas.The University community also thought in thiswise twenty years ago. Even a casual turning of thealready yellowed pages of the University Record andthe Daily Maroon for 1917 and 1918 makes this amplyclear. "The great fight," runs a Maroon editorial, "isfor the safety of democracy, for the rights of all nations,and, God grant, for permanent peace." Its readers weretold that sound reason, humanity, and love of free governments called them to service even more imperativelythan did the authorities at Washington. The war was acrusade.The many distinguished guests of the University during the war years, ranging in rank from Marshal Foch,ex-Premier Viviani and the Archbishop of York toPrivate Peat, more eloquently elaborated the sametheme. In the light of very recent events, the responseof Professor Masaryk to President Judson's greeting inMay, 1918, is of special interest. "I cannot but remember," said Masaryk, "that it was the University of Chicago which invited me a few years ago to lecture on asubject which is now one of those uppermost in theminds of the world, namely, the Czecho- Slovak question. You are a constant reminder that real, sincerepolitics must be founded on science. Science is truth,nothing more or less, and political truth is democracy.That is what the nations of the world are fighting fortoday — democracy." These words are a sharp reminderof the continuity of history. They also counsel that asmen strive to live forward in a dynamic world, theyshould think backward occasionally in order to keep atgrips with realities.But men, women, and physical resources, as wellas ideas, were mobilized on this campus twenty yearsago. Even before the United States entered the conflict, the Rifle Club and the Reserve Officers TrainingCorps were formed. In March, 1917, a large numberof the faculty sent resolutions to President Wilson, volunteering to help in case of need and urging universalmilitary training.156 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEWhen hostilities began a month later, the number andthe scope of war services rendered by trustees, facultyand students defy any attempt to summarize briefly.The Board of Trustees hastened to offer the science laboratories to the government for war use. The University over-subscribed its Liberty Loan Bond allotments.Mr. La Verne Noyes, a member of the Board, set aside alarge sum of money for the endowment of scholarshipsfor veterans and their descendants. As month followedmonth, more and more of the University plant was drawminto the nationwide war machine. Dormitories and fraternity houses were used as barracks, recitation buildings were changed into army workshops, and diningrooms were designated as mess halls. This process oftransformation was completed on October 1st, 1918 bythe establishment of the Student Army Training Corps.By that time four hundred women were also drilling asmembers of the Women Student Training Corps. Inthe words of Vice-President Angell, spoken a few weeksbefore, "The principal business for the duration of thewar will be the training of young men for such servicein the United States Army as can be rendered only byhighly educated soldiers. All else will be made subservient to this major obligation."Long before President Judson sailed for the NearEast on an official mission in the summer of 1918 he hadbeen directing so much important civilian war-work thathe could devote only one early-morning hour each dayto University problems. By then more than a hundredmembers of the Faculty were on leave of absence, andthose on the campus were engaged in a bewildering variety of war tasks which had earlier been co-ordinatedunder the supervision of nine master committees. Newcourses and many lectures were given on the backgroundand meaning of the world conflict; books and pamphlets were prepared on these subjects and several hundred students were instructed by the School of Businessin the special techniques required in certain branchesof Army Service.The records suggest that every succeeding day broughtto the teaching and administrative staffs a new call fora donation or an investment of money to further thecause. The bookshelves of faculty and students weredepleted by gifts of nearly 9,000 volumes to soldiers' andsailors' libraries. There were three hundred applications for the two hundred gardens set aside for facultyuse by the University on its land in this neighborhood.The Department of Botany undertook to name the vegetables which the soil of each plot would best grow, andeach faculty cultivator was obliged to pledge to keephis allotment free from weeds. The wives of the Faculty, with their friends and many students, organizedthe Women's War Aid of the University of Chicagoto raise money for war uses, promote conservation andthrift, sew, knit, make surgical dressings, and meet thenew demands for social welfare work.From April 1917, when a well-attended mass meeting extended congratulations to Russia upon her entrance into the family of democratic nations, until theorder came from Washington in November, 1918 todisband the Student Army Training Corps, the life ofthe student body was largely shaped by the national crisis. Whether to enlist or not to enlist before graduation ; how to economize ; what social and athleticevents to forego, and how the war would affect University life in the future, were some of the questions givenmuch space in the Daily Maroon. There was generalagreement that the undergraduates, realizing the magnitude of the problems they would soon have to face, werebecoming more serious. For this reason, it was urgedthat they should henceforward be known as men andwomen and not as boys and girls. The universities inpeace time, as in war time, should furnish a better preparation for service to the state. From now on theremust be a closer bond between the universities of America and those of Europe. The enemy overseas must befought but he must not be hated.This community became accustomed to the call of thebugle and the tread of marching men. Early in thewar Rush Medical College organized an ambulance company which grew to a strength of six officers and 180men. Fifteen hundred students were soon drilling onthis campus. Within a year the enrollment of men inthe University and the Divinity School dropped nearly35%. The Law School suffered a loss of 60%. Latein February, 1918, the Daily Maroon reported that thefirst Chicago alumnus had given his life for his country.Thereafter, on its first page, new names, framed with aheavy black line appeared all too frequently. In Juneof that year the alumni presented the University witha service flag of 1068 stars. This number largely increased before the Armistice was signed, and the eightgold stars of June multiplied eight times.Half-way in time between the first Armistice Day andthe present occasion, the erection of the UniversityChapel was completed. As a part of the impressiveservice of dedication, the many people assembled hererepeated in unison a statement of the eleven purposesto which this building should be devoted. They readin part, "to preserve the memory of those who heardthe call to arms and gave their lives for liberty andright believing that their sacrifice might bring the worldto peace." The Chapel was to be "a home for the idealism of the University" and "a building in which to gainnew inspiration and courage to face life and to transform it." A sword-bearing Archangel Michael, representing righteousness militant, guards its south entranceand the stone figures of Woodrow Wilson and TheodoreRoosevelt — "university men who carried the crusadingspirit into public life" — flank its tower door.All this well accords with the spirit of Armistice Dayand makes this building a fitting place to preserve thememory of those alumni and students of the Universitywrho twenty years ago felt deeply, dared greatly, anddid not return when the war was over. "We recall withreverent pride," said Vice-President Angell to the studentbody in October, 1918, "the brave men whose lives they[the gold stars in the service flag] commemorate, —friends and companions who stood but yesterday beside us here in the full vigor of youth. . . . Here it shallbe written for all the centuries to come — a great university, dedicated to the peaceful pursuit of science, lettersand the arts, in the twinkling of an eye transformedherself into an armed camp, training her sons in the hourof the nation's need for the stern business of war."THE ALUMNI WORK FOR A LIVINGBy ROBERT C. WOELLNER, A. M. '24, Executive Secretary, the Board of Vocational GuidanceFROM 1893 to 1938, the University of Chicago hasawarded Bachelor's degrees to over 25,000 menand women. The significance of a baccalaureatedegree from an American college has changed duringthat period — changed in regard to its prerequisites andchanged in regard to the average person's attitude towardthose who possess the degree. For better or for worse,the college graduates of 1938 are viewed in a differentlight than were the graduates of the earlier years.This transition is accounted for in part by the largeincreases in the number of degree holders and in part bythe vocations which the former graduates typically entered as compared with the vocational outlook of thegraduates of recent years. The graduates of today canno longer confine their, vocational aims to the few professions which claimed most college graduates of yearsago.To a certain extent, this change in viewpoint wasforced upon them by the overcrowding which has takenplace in the traditional vocations. However, other factors influenced the graduate's vocational aspirations.The increase in college enrolments across the years sentforth into the world upon graduation an increasingly diversified group of young people. Their differences wouldnaturally be reflected in their vocational interests. Thentoo, the broadening of the content of the secondaryschool and college curriculums gave graduates a relatively more complete understanding of society and thevarious aspects of work to be done.The purpose of this article is to show the generaltrend in the selection of vocations by the baccalaureatedegree graduates of the University of Chicago, ratherthan to attempt a detailed analysis of the data whichhave been collected from three studies undertaken by thewriter and the Secretary of the Alumni Council. Inaddition, the trend toward a broadening of the vocational horizon is shown also by the results of a comparative study of the vocations preferred by entering freshmen of the University of Chicago since 1932. Unfortunately all the data referred to were assembled by useof questionnaires with all their inherent limitations.DISTRIBUTION OF THE VOCATIONS OF THEGRADUATESThe vocations of some of the graduates, especially themorerf recent graduates, have no doubt changed, eitherfrom choice or from necessity, after the basic data werecollected. However, the general picture of the vocationswill probably remain just about the same.In order to be able to follow the trends more easily,the years from 1893 to 1937 (inclusive) were groupedinto five periods, and the data were tabulated separatelyfor the men and women.The percentage of both men and women who wentinto the general field of business increased from twenty- seven to thirty-five for the men and from five to eighteenfor the women during the period from 1893 to 1930.The reports covering the years 1931 through 1937 showthat twenty-five per cent of the men and eleven per centof the women who reported their vocations had enteredbusiness pursuits. The specific vocations generally givenby the alumni in the field of business are accounting, advertising, banking, managership, real estate, selling, andsecretarial. The last category was reported by men aswell as women graduates since 1930.The percentage of men and women of Chicago entering the traditional professions of law, medicine, the ministry, and teaching, has gradually decreased since 1920.The percentages entering the professions were ratherconstant for both men and women from 1893 to 1920.This was in a period in which the economic and sociological changes had not as yet affected the status of thecollege graduates. The decrease for the men has beenfrom sixty-eight to thirty-six per cent and that for thewomen from eighty to forty-seven per cent. During theperiod 1921-1930, the percentage of men entering theprofessions was fifty-six; that of the women, seventy.Approximately half of the men and nine-tenths of thewomen who were classified in the professional group areteachers or educational administrators. The percentagerelationship among the several professions has remainedpractically the .same from decade to decade.The percentage of men with Bachelor's degrees fromthe University of Chicago who enter the professions oflaw and medicine tends to be a trifle smaller across theyears. On the other hand, a small but an ever increasing percentage of women are entering these fields. Theministry is gradually fading out as an alumni vocation.Although the graduates of the University are foundin varying numbers in practically all important occupations, the most striking trend, especially in the most recent years, is in the direction of the newer fields. Radio,aviation, statistical research, social service, government,and other vocations are attracting many of the graduates. In passing, it should be noted that a very old occupation is also getting a play by the alumni. Since1930, four graduates report that they are in agriculture.For how long, the study does not disclose.The graduates apparently are becoming interested ingovernment as a vocation. Since 1931, seven-tenths ofone per cent of the men and three-tenths of one per centof the women have been either elected or appointed topublic office. Although this represents a very limitednumber of individuals, there is evidence that the percentage will be increased rather rapidly as time goeson. The vocations which are more or less associatedwith the social sciences seem of increasing interest tothe entering freshmen.(Continued on Page 20)7CONTINENTAL FOOTNOTESI TRAVELED then as I live nowin the benevolent shadow of theUniversity. We lay in the Mersey River for over twelve hours untileight hundred head of cattle had beendriven off and the surplus feed unloaded. Liverpool was good forlittle more than a bath in an honest-to-God bathtub and dinner at a table,white with napery and gleaming withsilver. But only a few hours awayI was to be reminded of home on thequadrangles of an older but no morehonorable university.I had a letter to William Francisof Oxford, the grandfather of GeneFrancis. He turned out to be a cheerful, grey-haired old man, full of questions about the Midway and moreparticularly about a husky grandsonwho played expertly at some curiousAmerican version of football. Hetook me walking slowly across thegreen lawns of his own College,Christ's Church, and showed mewhere the original Alice had rompedwith her dolls.Next day I invited him to theMitre for lunch and, much to my surprise, he accepted. It was a pleasant meal, without incident until coffee was served. Then a party of five men entered thedining room, all talking and gesturing with Gallic enthusiasm. All but one had blue-black spade beards.The exception was dressed in a shiny black alpaca suit.He wore a sailor straw hat from which was suspendeda pair of glasses on a cord. It was Premier Herriot, theswarthy Mayor of Lyons. We never found out whatthey were all doing in the Mitre, but they seemed in aterrific hurry and left even before we had finished talking.William Francis still lives at Oxford, retired on apension. He is now ninety-eight years old, but whenGene's mother saw him last summer he was as merryand gentle as ever in spite of the crippling rheumatics.He was librarian of Christ's Church for seventy-fiveyears.¦g * *In Paris the University could not be forgotten long.In Passy I found Elizabeth Corse, one of the many girlsthat Hal Noble used to wheel around. She was (anddoubtless still is) a trim, exquisite blonde no bigger thana half-pint flask. She took me to Sceaux-Robinsonwhere the food was not exceptional but where you couldclimb to your table at the top of an oak tree. Therewere six of us in the party and after the brandy we sangROBERT POLLAK, '24Blackfriars author, staff member of the DallyMaroon, editor of the literary magazine, theCircle, these were some of the activities ofRobert Pollak on the campus.

It must have been the firsttime the song had ever been heardthere.On the left bank, in an apartmentover Duguesclin's I discovered LucyWoodworth living with a girl friendfrom Winnetka. Lucy was studyingpiano with a Cortot pupil and atleast once a week we played four-hands on her battered upright. Wemastered an arrangement of theFranck Symphony and made everybody listen.Once in a while she would favorus with those little songs she wrotefor Mirror. She came from someplace in Michigan, but somewhereelse she had picked up just a touchof Southern accent, enough to giveher throaty voice a torchy quality. Iremember one ditty born for Mirrorfrom the Coue rage. "Every day inevery way, I'm getting better andbetter and better . . ." But Lucywasn't. She died before she wasthirty of some strange and rare ailment.The apartment over Duguesclinswas as congenial as the second-floorsitting room of the Gargoyle whereLucy played and sang in 1922. Sometimes, while we rehearsed the Franck, I would listen unconsciously forthe cars going by on Dorchester Avenue or half expectFanny Herrick to stop and bid us a cackling good nightas she mounted to her attic room.* * *This section is for you, Leon Stolz. Do you remember Floyd Gibbons' cook and the Presse Transatlan-tique? So many things seemed to happen that summer.You had borrowed Gibbons' apartment and were livingin sin with half a dozen old pipes and a portable typewriter. Then one night after dinner the idea hit us.There was a convention of American business men going on in Paris and we decided to promote a service tocelebrate their daily doings (such as were printable)in their own home-town papers. As I recall we werenot quite clear just how we were going to do it or whatwe were going to charge. But we had the stationeryprinted at once.Do you remember that lovely stationery, Leon? Arich cream, embossed with the impressive words "PresseTransatlantique" and, in the corner, Leon Stolz, direc-teur. We put a large ad in the Paris Edition of theTribune (known affectionately as The World's Lousiest8THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 9Newspaper) and waited nervously for the first applicant. He arrived. He was the first and the last, a perkylittle man from Davenport. When we told him whatwe were up to his pompadour bristled like a porcupineand he sneered a large sneer. "Say, I know the Davenport editors a damned sight better than you do. Whyin hell should I pay you anything for what my hometown papers print about me "We were too frightened to answer coherently, andshortly after he gave us a patronizing handshake,grabbed his hat and left. That evening the PresseTransatlantique went into receivership over a bottle ofGibbons' sauterne. His cook, a mustached old girlnamed Sarah, must have sensed that we were unhappyfor she gave us the bravest dinner I had ever eaten. Wetoasted her in magnificent periods and dubbed her forever . . . the Divine Sarah. I wonder what happenedto the stationery.* * *Vincent Sheean came into Weber's one night and satdown at a table with Darrah, Stolz and myself. Thiswas just before the Riffian adventure and Personal History was nothing but a gleam in the author's eye. Butyou knew at once that this was the most attractive fellow in the world and that the University's red headwas going places. Men and women loved him for hischarm, his swagger and his wit.I met him again next night at Maxim's by arrangement and when he came through the door the handsomest professional ladies immediately made for our tableand clustered about him. It seemed that they habituallyconsulted him over their personal affairs. He was theirgood and wise friend and it was obvious that l'amourhad nothing to do with it. Mimi wanted to know howto educate the little boy that was farmed out with relatives in Orleans. Frou-Frou asked for a list of novelsto improve her mind. Clo-Clo sought a tip on theBourse.This involved a lot of brandy and soda and by nineo'clock, when we departed for the Chauve Souris at theFemina, we both felt like titans. Sheean, in expansivemood, had ordered a box for the two of us and as weslid into our chairs we looked down for the first time uponthe bald head of Balieff, shining like a moon in theamber spot. It was not strange that the Chauve Sourisshould captivate a tripper from Blackstone Avenue. ButSheean had never seen the revue either and he roaredhis enthusiasm after each item. Balieff's final twinklingspeech was too much for Jimmy. As the orchestraplayed a hopak he leaned far over the rail to express hisappreciation. He was just about to slip head first intothe pit twenty feet down when I grabbed him by thecoat-tails. This is my sole contribution to Americanletters, but a very important one.* * *Of course Ahmed-el-Easy reappeared, walked intomy life again one balmy evening at the Cafe de la Paix.Ahmed was one of the University's most exotic undergraduates, a heavy, swart Egyptian, son of an Alexandrian grain merchant. When I knew him he hoped tobecome a diplomat, a career that would not require him to move much. He used to roll a frank and lustful eyeat every girl on the campus and when love failed him,he ate ten course dinners instead.Ahmed and Len Weil and I were half-fascinated andhalf-annoyed by a mysterious organization with quartersover a store on 55th Street. It was known as the GreenChalybeate, a title snatched out of Cabell by John Gunther, the Supreme Calyb. Its members, as I recall, wereGunther, Vories Fisher, Sol Litt, Frank Barbour andwhatever Mortarboards weren't busy that evening. TheGreen Chalybeates simply lolled in exclusiveness andAhmed and Lenny and I were torn between a desire topooh-pooh them and an even more intense itch to get in.Once I passed an evening within the holy portals. WhileGunther read Proust out loud the rest of the companywas required to stare intensely at a cabalistic black spoton the wall. But I never found out why.By 192'4 Ahmed had grown very fat. He took me tohave pilaff and Turkish coffee and we talked of the University. He had found out that Gunther and Lennywere living on an island off the Cote D'Azur and heyearned to go there as he was homesick for them both.But John wanted no satellites about. He was workingin the Mediterranean sun on one of those dreadful novels. Clad in shorts and tortoise shell glasses, his wrispyblonde hair waving in the breeze, he pounded away atthe typewriter, an instrument he was never to escape.And anyway it would have taken a battleship to transport Ahmed across the water.Five years ago I heard of Ahmed again. He hadgrown so fat that he had to be pushed around in a wheelchair. In my mind's eye I see him, a man-mountainseated cross-legged upon a carpet, surrounded by hourisfrom Esquire and sorting passports for visiting firemen.* * *Interlude at Bad-Aussee. When the narrow-gaugetrainlet puffed into the station it was pouring rain andalmost dark. There was no kind of a hack around. Iput on a poncho and started out to find the Villa Garten-heim. The mountains of the Steiermark, wreathed inmist, loomed above the town. I was very tired andhungry.A friendly direction or two, a wooden gate, a littlesign. Up a flight of uncarpeted stairs. A beam of lightfrom under a door, second floor front. Tableaux.Two men were seated at a table playing chess. Evawas wiping the supper dishes. On the floor herbaby played with a big wooden spoon. The child, seeing a stranger at the threshold, beat madly with thespoon and began to wail. George and his friend arosein embarrassed surprise. Eva flourishing the dish-towel, said with mock hauteur, "Fancy seeing you here."The first hour was bad. George was precisely as dourand inarticulate as he had always been. His chess opponent, a stage designer of dubious masculinity, I hadnever liked. And Eva had escaped from a Universitythat had hurt her when she tried to rebel, into a marriage that was to bruise her even worse. But nobodyknew about that then. She tried to make things as easyas possible and warmed over the schnitzel. Then we(Continued on Page 20)THE CAMPUS BYSTANDER• By EMMETT DEADMAN, '39THE celebration of Homecoming for Amos AlonzoStagg held the center of interest for students thispast month, Under the direction of the Homecoming Committee the pre-game festivities drew forth arecord crowd of students.Publicity began in earnest the Tuesday before the gamewhen men with walrus mustaches and women attiredin dresses "like mother used to wear" appeared in thecircle astride tandem bicycles. Then on Thursday thefreshman class held a- freshman day. Under the direction of President Al Dreyfuss it was a success from themoment it started in the Circle with a tug of war between sixteen freshmen women and six freshmen football players until the dinner and dance that night inIda Noyes.On Friday students found every available spot on thesidewalks completely covered with whitewash. Advertising the homecoming dance, Victory Vanities, the gameon Saturday, and their often-times perverted sense ofhumor, Iron Mask had done a thorough but messy job.The traditonal tug-of-war came at noon in the Circlewith the freshmen easily out-numbering and out-pullingthe sophomores. The Botany Pond was the scene ofthe next struggle. After the freshmen and sophomoreshad tossed each other in they turned to the chairman ofthe Student Social Committee and chairman of the Boardof the Maroon who soon were down among the lily pads.The Victory Vanities were shortened this year by having preliminary tryouts and then allowing four fraternities and two clubs to compete in the finals on Friday.Pi Lambda Phi, Phi Kappa Psi, Psi Upsilon, and ZetaBeta Tau competed in the fraternity finals with honorsgoing to the Pi Lams who did a riotous parody of theMunich conference. Chi Rho Sigma won the club trophywith a skit concerning the publicity ideas of the DailyMaroon. The Homecoming Decorations were won byPhi Kappa Psi.That evening before the dance students once moregathered in the Circle. This time it was for a hugebon-fire and pep session. Twins Chester and Bill Murphy were crowned King of Homecoming and Jean Peterson, lovely freshman beauty, was formally presented asQueen. Also present was the Grand Old Man whoreceived an enormous ovation from the crowd.The story of the game will be found either under sportsor obituary.With a versatility that we are proud enough to believecould hardly be achieved elsewhere students were willing to turn with equal enthusiasm to matters of localand national politics.On November 4 a crowd of several hundred paradedthrough the University neighborhood bearing old-fashioned torches and carrying banners for James WeberLinn, candidate for State Representative. It was ahealthy interest in politics too infrequently seen aroundUniversities and it was also a reminder of the stake which students everywhere have in seeing that the menin the halls of their legislatures are the educated men ofthe community.The Political Union brought international issues totlie campus two weeks later when they announced thatthe mid-west Secretary of the German American Bundwould speak on campus. There would have been noquestion about allowing the meeting had it not followedso inpropitiously upon the heels of recent Nazi pogroms.Because of the extreme sentiment against the pogromsthe Dean's office thought it wise to postpone the meetinguntil a time when students could adopt a more rationalattitude toward the situation.The Daily Maroon expanded its activity with the publication of a literary supplement. Conceived as an outlet for campus writers now that Pulse is devoting itselfexclusively to news, the first page was largely an experiment. It was accorded a good reception by campusreaders and will continue to appear every three weeks.The Daily Maroon meanwhile began its first long runcampaign — a campaign for co-operative rooming andeating facilities. Combining with its editorials a seriesof stories on the success of co-operatives already established here and at other schools, the Maroon at the sametime began to interview deans, business officials of theUniversity and others in a concrete effort to discoverwhat facilities might be available for any co-operativewhich would be started.Most of the students of the University, like most ofthe students in most universities, have little money tospare. The Maroon felt in starting this movement forco-operatives such as those at Wellesley, Smith, and atmany state and church colleges, they would not be affecting the group who now live in University dormitories, nor the income of the University from this source.The movement was aimed primarily to secure clean, airyrooms for those students whose financial circumstancesmake it necessary for them to live in neighborhoods andin rooms where conditions are not favorable to studyor to normal adjustment to a University program. Committees of the Chapel Union and American StudentUnion are co-operating with the Maroon in this drive,which has every indication of being successful.The man-of-the-month was undoubtedly BertrandRussell. Finding him a good speaker and an obligingpersonality, campus groups lost no time in seizing thisopportunity for contact with so noted a scholar and liberal. Appearing often at two meetings a day besides conducting his classes, Lord Russell amazed his audienceswith his vigor as well as his wit.As the football team concludes the season the issueof whether the University is justified in staying in theBig Ten or in inter-collegiate football at all, begins toappear again. Faced with the. fact that the homecominggame, the most natural drawing card of the past decade,(Continued on page 12)10IN MY OPINIONBy FRED B. MILLETT, PhD'31, Visiting Professor of English, Wesleyan UniversityWHEN that prince of press-agents, George Bernard Shaw, told an inquiring reporter thatChristmas ought to be abolished by law, a stormof protests broke about the head of that wicked andheartless old man. But to the strophe of denunciation,there must have been an antistrophe of still small voicescrying "Hear Hear!" For one neednot be a professional purveyor of paradoxes to feel a great weariness descending on the spirit as the thought ofan approaching Christmas casts itsshadow over the mind and conscience.And even those who enjoy staggering,bundle-burdened, through murky andslushy streets or who are skilful atfield-running down the crowded aislesof mammoth department stores mustexperience an attack of ennui, if not ofexhaustion, before the last name iscrossed off one's list, the last packagegaily wrapped, the final bundle delivered, and the ultimate Christmas cardstamped. The peak of exasperationcomes as the first cards arrive fromthose over-prompt souls whom one has entirely forgotten. He has not done the things that he ought to havedone, and there is precious little health left in him.For the adult, at least, there is an inescapable elementof boredom in the celebration of almost every folk-festival. Certainly, one approaches with little anticipatoryjoy the annual incidence of such pathetic modern holidays as the Fourth of July or Labor Day, and the commercialized exploitation of decent human emotions by-such national orgies as Mother's Day or Father's Daymust induce something like nausea in any right-feelingparent.But while in the modern world, folk-festivals, whetherancient or modern, are boring or fatiguing to mostadults, they remain delightful and exciting to children.The most modest of annual holidays is awaited withmounting anticipation. Experience has not yet demonstrated too conclusively that the joy of anticipation exceeds the experience of realization. In consequence, theprospect of a holiday invests childhood with an atmosphere of excitement and speculation, of eager preparation and nervous expectancy. In the shy soliciting offunds for Roman candles, sky-rockets, or giant cannoncrackers, the carving of grotesque physiognomies out ofunresisting pumpkins, or the careful making and concealing of crude little hand-made gifts for one's elders thechild finds occasion for infinite delight. For him, theholiday is an escape from the trap of the tiresome process of education, an opportunity for an expression ofthat capacity for endless and breathless play with whichthe young animal is blessedly endowed and which theFRED B. MILLETTaging animal very rapidly loses. (If the adult plays, heusually plays, not for the sake of the game but for thesake of his waist-line.)Anyone who remembers his childhood will be ableto re-create without difficulty the emotions with whichthe annual procession of holidays was glamorously invested. The thought of gatheringspring flowers for Memorial Day observances still floods my nostrils withthe sickly sweet odor of lilacs, bringsto the mind's eye the opulent and complex clusters and lavender or whiteflowers. And for the child followingdoggedly after a coach of Grand ArmyVeterans en route to the village cemetery, listening to a choir of clear youngvoices singing simple old hymns by thedark cluster of spruce trees, and watching the wreathing of the soldiers'graves at the melancholy sound of taps,the day had a pleasurable sadness evenmore precious than the gayer hoursthat followed, with the band concertin the village park, and the parade ofcoachful after coachful of Veterans, preceded by the ranksof their dapper Sons. Each recurrent ceremonial broughtthe suppressed excitement and agitation of preparation :the slow accumulation of pennies, nickels, and dimes forthe carefully considered purchasing of oriental fireworks, of Valentines, masks for Hallowe'en, or dyes forEaster eggs. In our clan, at least, the children wereexpected to speak appropriate "pieces" and sing the traditional songs at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and thisritual involved the learning of lines and parts and frantic last-minute rehearsals. Thanksgiving Day was alegitimized orgy of self-indulgence. Even in New England, there was on this day no mortifying of the flesh.Instead, every device tempted the appetite to the lastpossible excess. The matriarch of the clan, my grandmother, took a gusty delight in loading the long tablewith platters of turkey and roast pork, dressing andvegetables, pies, plum pudding, and the hard sauce ofwhich a child felt that he could never (but alas he could)have enough. For this great feast, she baked pies —mince and pumpkin — not in paltry twos and threes, butliterally by the dozen.For the American child, Christmas is certainly themost thrilling of folk-festivals. The preparation for itis so slow and elaborate, the mounting sleepless tensionis so great that the Day itself is almost bound to be anticlimax to the Eve. In the New England countryside,there were delightful preliminary rituals: the long questthrough woods and swamps for ground pine, trailingevergreen, the scarlet berries and shiny dark green leavesof the holly, and — most important of all — the perfect1112 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEand shapely Christmas tree. The elaborate process ofcutting down the sacred tree, bringing it home, mounting it on firm pedestal, and adorning it with long stringsof red cranberries and snow-white popcorn and with thesilvery and golden trinkets treasured from year to yearmade the tree the focal symbol of the festival. For whenproperly adorned and suitably tended, would it not bearthe most magical of fruits? Would it not fructify withall and more than the heart of childhood could desire ?The child's delight in the observance of these immemorial rituals is in itself justification enough for theirconscientious observance. That delight is perhaps closerto wisdom than the adult's ennui, for the child is the racial unconscious, is more open to the access ofracial memories the significance of which are for theadult dimmed or lost. Thus, the ancient festivals havea profound instinctive and emotional appeal that setsthem off from trivial modern holidays prescribed by lawand enforced by pressure groups. The dark backwardand abysm of time has endowed folk ritual with layerupon layer of meaning. In such festivals, ritual andsymbol are inseparable, and both have cultural significances — whether phallic or Roman, Druidical or Christian — no less potent because they are almost lost in thedepths of the racial unconscious.Ritual observances are their own justification. Theyadd joy and color to lives that would otherwise be uneventful and monotonous. Man who earns his breadby the sweat of his brow works not merely in order tolive but in order to play, and festival rituals are a kindof racial play, far more meaningful than private playcould draw but 10,000 spectators and with the fact thatBig Ten teams were beginning to murmur about playinga school where their share of the gate receipts wouldnot cover expenses, campus prophets foresaw a gloomyfuture.About one thing the down-town papers left no doubtafter the College of the Pacific game. Football has been"de-emphasized" at the University. Not a single scribeneglected to employ this phrase in describing the gameand not a single person at the game would have doubtedit.A definite student reaction toward the immediate situation has not gained momentum as yet. All the oldcries of uget anew coach," "get out of the Big Ten,"are heard as often as before. But there is one sentimentwhich is unanimous. The students are proud of theirUniversity and are tired of seeing it ridiculed merelybecause of its football teams. They feel the Universityshould have a team of which it can be proud as it is ofits other departments. If it cannot do this without giving football more emphasis than it deserves, it shouldwalk out of the conference, in football at least, with itshead up. It is possible it might compete in other sports because in them the individual shares again and againthe experience of the race, and becomes an indistinguishable element in a larger consciousness. Throughritual, one escapes out of his sense of the pitiful brevityof his own existence into the timeless, and takes a mute'spart in the thrilling pageant of Man's endless struggleout of darkness and blood and cruelty into light andhealing and love.Ritual brings order and rhythm into life. The disorder traditionally authorized by certain festivals isitself a kind of order. For the legitimizing of indulgenceand excess in fairly decorous saturnalia rises out of awise recognition of the need for breaking over boundsoccasionally, of escaping temporarily from the necessaryrepressions and inhibitions of workaday existence, of taking moral holidays. Mardi Gras and the Fourth of Julyand Hallowe'en are socially condoned occasions for antisocial behavior.Ritual gives life its spiritual and emotional seasons. Itfurnishes moments consecrated to retrospection andprophecy. The processes by which we attempt to readthe future at Hallowe'en are trivial only in appearance.To the ancient, they were sacred; to the modern, theyserve a profound need to foresee and meet his fate.Christmas and the New Year, Easter and May Day arerecurrent reminders of the incessant struggle betweenthe forces of darkness and the forces of light, of the fundamental antithesis of life and death. The god is willingly sacrified, or out of his death comes a new life, — themiracle of new green leaves upon the seemingly barrenbough, the wonder of renewed fertility, the promise offruition before death.while either modifying or abandoning competiton in themore highly commercialized ones.In the end, one thing must be made clear. The undergraduate body of the University is not afraid of becoming a bunch of "queers" because the students adopt arational attitude in attempting to keep the Universityfrom being ridiculed. The University is still composedof as normal and healthy a group of students as it wastwenty years ago. And with or without football orBig Ten football it will attempt to draw those studentswho recognize the need for social as well as intellectualdevelopment.The undergraduates at Chicago are sold on their University not because they believe education is the onlyfunction of a University but because they believe it isthe most important. They believe the greatness of itseducational plant and not 'the ephemeral success of itsfootball teams should be the selling point of every University.It is for this reason they resent the attitude that thegreatness of the University lay in the time when itsfootball teams were great ; it is for this reason they wantthe alumni and friends of the University to realize thatthe University can be sold to prospective students upona basis other than the success of its athletic squads.The CamDUS Bystander (Continued from, Page 10)FATHERHonorable Mention in Manuscript ContestHE WAS a Fearful Person—an Emperor or a King — aSomebody who sat in thestudy on the third floor of our home.No one was allowed to enter his roomduring the hours he worked there. Atthose times, we tiptoed softly past hisdoor, holding our breath until wewere far down the hall. Only whenhe was out of the house did we venture into his den.He had an enormous desk with agreen felt top and three roomy drawers on each side. Inside the drawers,opened furtively at moments when hewas not there, were papers, letters,small note-books, newspaper clippings, photographs, smelly pipes.He called the study his "library."Maybe "library" was a better namefor it. There were books everywhere, for he, himself, had plannedthe room when the house was built.Open shelves reached from floor toceiling. They filled every cranny andnook. They overflowed the entireroom except where the three windowslet in the morning sun.That he was a Fearful Person Iknew before I was five years old.Seated on the floor, one day, I wassurprised in the act of looking at thepictures in one of the books I hadhauled off the lowest shelf."That's no way to turn pages !" he roared.I was paralyzed. I could say nothing. He stoopedover and took the book from me."Look!" he said. "This is the way. See? Booksare your friends. You must treat them as if they wereyour friends. Remember!"I did. I still remember. I still turn the pages ofa book as he taught me that day.He was a newspaper editor. Because of the interruptions at the office he preferred to do most of hiswork at home. Late at night, long after the rest ofthe street* was silent and dead, his light would shinelike a beacon from the top of the house.For, whatever he did, was done in that painstakingmanner which was second nature to him. Such attention to detail! Such infinite amount of research workto satisfy his craving for accuracy! Every insignificant fact had to be weighed and examined and tracedto its original source and its verity, even then, corroborated by a dozen authorities before it could find a placein his manuscript.

For two years did bookreviewing for the Chicago Daily News.

At present, a member of thefaculty of the Chicago Musical College." • By HILMA ENANDER, '29For truth was the foundation onwhich he built and there could be noslipshod work in the building of thatfoundation. If his work were tostand the test, there could be nomakeshifts, no hurried inaccuracies."I am here but for a short time," heseemed to say to himself. "I mustsoon pass on. But truth lives onforever. I must write the truth." Olong hours of the night ! O tiredbody! O fruitless hope!I shall never forget my first introduction to these late hours thatFather kept. Mother and I had beento a church festival that night. Wecame home pretty late. As we walkeddown the dark, silent street, I caughtsight of the light in Father's window.It was the first time I had ever seenit from the outside of the house lateat night."Look !" I cried. "He's up ! He'snot in bed yet!""He's always up," Mother replied."You'll see that light no matter whattime of the night you pass. It'salways there."But he was not always busy. Therewas Fourth of July, for instance. Oh,the glory of that day !Early, at sunrise the big Americanflag had to be hung from the tiny balcony outside thelibrary. The thrill of it! The danger of two hundredpounds on that frail woodwork ! Let me do it ! I don'tweigh much ! Out of the way ! The folds float down.O Beautiful!More to be done after breakfast! Boxes and boxesof Chinese lanterns to be strung on wires criss-crossingthe lawn! Countless errands to be run to the cornerstore for extra firecrackers! The excitement of it all!Neighbors lingering at the fence! Children insinuatingsudden affection! Twenty-five cents for spendingmoney in one's pocket! A fortune!Then the long wait for the night.At last! The flag first! That had to be taken in,floated carefully and put away in the box for the nextholiday. Then the lanterns were lighted. Colored lightsshot up. Cannon crackers boomed. What a night !Father sending up rockets — whirling Roman candles!Brother and I dancing about, shouting, overwhelmedat his courage! Fire was dripping down all over himbut he didn't mind!Stars bigger than the stars of heaven! Balloons1314 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINElike yellow pumpkins!

We were goingto learn the Declaration of Independence by heart so thatwe could say it right through without stopping!Ten o'clock. Father telling Mother, "I have to getdown to the office at eight tomorrow. You had bettercall me."Fourth of July was over.There was another breathing space more gloriousthan even Fourth of July. Christmas !That meant weeks of preparation. For ale had tobe brewed — fish prepared — sausage stuffed — ham baked— rolls and cookies made and put away in stone jars.On the last morning the tree had to be trimmed. Itwas a huge one and stood in the center of the living-room. Father climbed up the ladder and fastened thestar to the top. Then he hung the ornaments on thebranches that were too high for us to reach. But weall helped. He insisted on that. Finally the tall, whitecandles had to be fitted into their brass candlesticks —two for each window. "House of a Thousand Candles,"the neighbors called the place. House of a ThousandDreams it became in our hearts.At six o'clock, we went down to dinner. We weredressed in our best. There were no guests that evening, but we felt as if we were moving among princesand kings. We walked on light. We spoke with thestars.Only candles were used that night. Six, tall, red onesburned in the old silver candelabrum. Others stood atequal distances apart along the length of the table. Berries traced a scarlet ribbon from one end of the clothto the other.The best china was out — fragile, beautiful. Also thewine-glasses — dwindling heirlooms of the family. Oncea year we saw them. Once a year we learned the namesof Tokay, Claret, Rhine Wine, Sherry, Chartreuse,Champagne, Benedictine.Course followed course — slowly — Epicurean-like. Forthere was no hurry on this night of nights — no rush.There was time for everything.Finally, the Christmas pudding — each one helping himself, each one contributing an original poem as he tooka spoonful of the melting delicacy. We all dreaded thispart of. the dinner — all but Father. His poem was aWork of Art, immaculately suited for the occasion. Wemust save these poems of his, we declared. We mustwrite them down in a book. But we never did. Weonly remembered the spirit that lived in them and madethem a part of our life.Next to his work, Father's greatest interest lay insocial intercourse. He was always anxious to meetpeople, to exchange views with them, to argue withthem on the important questions of the day. He belonged %to a number of clubs. He founded an historicalsociety. He was made honorary member of the PolishNational Alliance. Earlier in life, he had been appointed United States Minister and Consul General toDenmark. He lived to be decorated by a king.Sometimes he held court in the front yard. A Saturday afternoon would begin innocently enough with himsitting on the grass and digging up the dandelion plants that threatened to spoil the lawn. Then two men wouldpass — pause — hang over the fence. Another would stop.Still another. A discussion would have been started bythat time. More friends would happen along. A fullquorum! A crowd!People liked him. He was genial. He had a humorous slant, in spite of his seriousness. His laugh waspleasant. He was interested in everything. He wentto every concert to which the Choral Club invited him,although he was unable to distinguish Verdi from Bach.But his work and human intercourse were not hisonly interests. There were his books. And what booksthey were ! One had to grow up to know them.I shall never forget the welcome shock of findingVirgil's "Aeneid" on one shelf — twelve books insteadof the six I had to study ! So Father had to go throughthe same things ! There was another red letter day whenHomer wras discovered. The whole "Odyssey" in funnycurlicues! With it was Father's notebook, done inGreek too, with characters as clearly traced as the original printed ones."What's this?" I asked one day.I showed him a book I could not read."Icelandic. "For a moment I was dazed. Then: "I'm going totranslate it," I said.I hoped that he would offer to help me. He didn't.But the next day, he brought home a primer on theIcelandic language. I thanked him politely, but I washorribly disappointed. There were to be no cozy evenings in the library — no lengthy explanations.I made a ragged translation of the first three pagesof "Sagann." It stuttered and stammered through unintelligible Archaisms. It was pitifully inadequate.But Father never inquired. He had completely forgotten both "Sagann" and my vaulting ambition.There is one passage in Thomas De Quincey's literaryreminiscences that reads : "Genius is always peculiar andindividual; one man's genius never exactly repeats another man's."Every time I remember this passage, I think of Fatherand I wonder if, after all, he were not a genius. For hewas inimitable. I have never seen a man — I have nevermet a man like him. He was not of a type. He was noteven of a class or of an order. He stood alone. He washimself.We still celebrate Christmas as we did when he waswith us. We still dress in formal clothes on that nightof nights.Only candles are used on the table. Six, tall, red onesburn in the old candelabrum, polished to a shining glory.Berries trace a broad band of red from one end of thecloth to the other. The best china is out, as fragile asever. So are the wine glasses.Course follows course — slowly — Epicurean-like. Foron this night there must be no hurry. The gods are withus and there is time for everything. We drink one toastand we drink it standing.Only at the end comes a hiatus. For no one can thinkof a poem, It is not that we lack the spirit. It is, perhaps, because the spirit is. there.ATHLETICS• By JAY BERWANGER, '36Scores :Chicago, 0; Bradley, 0Chicago, 7; Michigan, 45Chicago, 14; Iowa, 27Chicago, 7 ; Ohio, 42Chicago, 34; DePauw, 14Chicago, 13 ; Harvard, 47Chicago, 0 ; Pacific, 32Chicago, 0; Illinois, 34THE University of Chicago 1938 football team finished its season against Illinois Nov. 19 on theshort end of the score. Injuries and broken spiritas the result of defeats by the College of the Pacific andHarvard were mainly instrumental in the Maroons' unsatisfactory showing against the Illini. A week beforethe Illini contest the Maroons took a trimming from analert and fast charging College of the Pacific team. Itwas a great squad the Maroons mixed with that day.Mr. Stagg brought to his old school the best team inthe College of the Pacific history and one which thisyear had no trouble winning the championship in itsconference.Until game time the week-end was a tremendoussuccess. On Friday night the Chicago Alumni Club inconjunction with the Order of the C gave a welcomehome dinner for Mr. Stagg and his Western team.The Maroon clad boys ran into trouble on their eastern jaunt when they played Harvard at Cambridge. Forthirty minutes the Chicago team played a good gamemaking two touchdowns themselves and allowing Harvard but two. During the second half, however, Harvard's superior power asserted itself and they scoredjust about at will sending the Maroons home limping.Although on the whole the University of Chicago'sfootball season could hardly be called successful the playing of several men was very satisfactory. Captain LewHamity, playing his last season for the University, dida splendid job of leading his team. Lew was the maincog in the offensive machinery. His passing was excellent. It was his throwing that made it possible forthe Maroons to score in nearly every one of their biggames. He was also responsible for three-fourths of thetackles on defense. In every way he conducted himselfin a manner befitting a University football captain.Sol Sherman, also playing his last football for theUniversity, did a splendid job of calling signals, passingand running with the ball. Sol started the season witha bad knee which fortunately got stronger as the seasonadvanced making it possible for his playing ability to improve correspondingly. With Sol in the game the Ma-rooms always had an offensive threat, without him theattack bogged down as there was really no one to takehis place.Bob Wasem, a junior from Fort Dodge, Iowa, wasby far the most outstanding player on the Chicago squad. He has already received men-ttion on several all-conference teams and with a corresponding degree of successnext year should really getin the football limelight. Bobwas not eligible at the startof the season but did get hisscholastic difficulties straightened out in time to playagainst Ohio when he scoredthe Maroons' only touchdown. His great pass-catching ability was his mosteffective weapon all fallJAY BERWANGER although he did a very creditable job of punting andplayed an excellent game at defensive half-back. Bobplayed the last two games with one finger in a cast. Itwas broken in three places — but this in no way preventedhim from making several spectacular catches.John Davenport, Big Ten sprint champion, went along way this fall in proving that he is a champion atfootball as well as on the cinder track. Davy did a nicejob of running with the ball and proved an effective target for Sherman and Hamity's passes.No excuses or alibis are forthcoming about this year'sshowing. Everyone should be looking forward to nextyear when we can be fairly confident of better results.With the football season tucked away, Nels Norgrenand his basketball team takes the sports limelight. TheMaroon tennis team, which swept through all its conference engagements last year, including every bracketin the Big Ten tournament, has been drafted for Chicago basketball this year.If Coach Norgren can teach the Murphy twins, Billand Chester, and Art Jorgensen, all outstanding tennisplayers, that a net is a net, whether it is strung acrossa court or draped around a hoop, the punch which madeChicago uncontested master of Middle-Western tenniscompetition may carry over onto the basketball floor.Aside from the spot-changing tennis champions, whohave had no basketball experience since high school,Chicago has six veterans, including three lettermen, whowill be available for all the conference starts. RichardLounsbury, a 6-foot 4-inch center, who placed tenth inindividual scoring in the conference last year when hewas a sophomore, and Robert ("Remy") Meyer, regular quarter on the football squad, are the two lettermenwho will lead the Maroon attack on the pivot line.Captain Bob Cassels, the other letterman on the squad,will be ineligible until January. Cassels is a fast, straight-shooting forward, and his experience will'be especiallyuseful to the Chicago team in its Big Ten schedule.Ralph Richardson, a 6-foot, 3-inch guard, also looks likea starter.15HOMECOMING ALUMNI AND STUDEIWLEADING THE parade atthe half was this prancinghorse and buggy.STUDENTS REVIVED the manners and dress ofthe Harper era even to the tandem bicycles.

President Hutchins has repeatedly stressedthe importance of increasing the amount available for theassistance of the hundreds of able applicants who areturned away each year because they cannot, unaided,finance their higher education. The University has beenexceedingly generous, particularly during the depression,in its assistance. The Board of Trustees has annuallyvoted to take from the funds — for which there are a multitude of uses — a large sum to permit remission of tuition.Each year the University gives aid to students whichtotals almost $350,000.To bring the value of scholarship and fellowship giftsto the attention of the friends of the University a pamphlet entitled "Men of Tomorrow" was published recently.One of the numerous projects to which Vice PresidentBenton has turned his expert attention, it makes an effective presentation of the usefulness of these particularfunds to the University. The accomplishments of butthree of the many students here who have justified inreturns to the world the training made possible by fellowship aid are presented in the stories of Dr. Arno Luckhardt, professor of physiology at the University who discovered the anesthetic, ethylene ; of Clarence A. Dykstra,the famous city' manager of Cincinnati who is now president of the University of Wisconsin, and of Clinton J.Davisson, first Chicago graduate to win the Nobel Prize.Briefly, in text and in pictures, the story of those fortunate ones who are receiving assistance is told. Typicalrecords from the files of the deans' offices tell the otherside, of students who have every qualification exceptmoney, to whom the University could not give help.Many who receive this booklet will become aware forthe first time that an endowment of $7,500 will providea $300 scholarship for one student every year; that anendowment of $25,000 will provide a fellowship of$1,000 to a graduate student every year.DR. SCHULTZ KILLEDA tragic accident in California, in which HenrySchultz, professor of economics, his wife, and twodaughters were killed when the car Dr. Schultz wasdriving plunged over an embankment, shocked the University community late in November. Unquestionablythe ablest mathematical economist of the country, if notin the world, and of equal stature as a statistician,Professor Schultz was a key man in one of the strongestdepartments in the University. Because of his uniqueabilities, he can not be easily replaced. This summerhe had published a book representing nearly ten yearsof hard work and creation, The Theory and Measurement of Demand. In this book he gave the first statistical statement of the law of supply and demand. Buthis untimely death at the -age of 45 was sad news, muchmore because of his personal popularity than because of • By WILLIAM V. MORGENSTERN, '20. JD '22his professional ability. Absorbed though he was inhis work, he was a genuinely friendly and quietly cordial member of the community.BENES ARRIVALDr. Eduard Benes, former president of the Czechoslovak Republic, has informed the University that hewill arrive on the Midway to teach on February 15. Dr.Benes is to give a course on "Modern Democracy"which will be open to all students, and also will teacha seminar open to graduate students only. Because ofthe date of his arrival, these courses will of necessitystraddle the winter and spring quarters, ending May 15.Dr. Benes so far has accepted an appointment for athree-months' period only, but it is hoped that when hearrives here he will consider extending his stay.PHYSICAL SOCIETY MEETINGWhat University of Chicago physicists have foundout about cosmic rays in their latest studies constitutedone of the important elements of the quarterly meetingof the American Physical Society, held at Eckhart Halllast month. Professor Arthur H. Compton, the No. 1expert on the subject, was not present, for he is delivering the Lowell lectures in Boston. Several of the research projects which he suggested, and which werecarried on by his research assistants and graduate students, were reported on. One of them gave further corroboration to the tentative conclusion announced lastJune by Professor Compton, that the cosmic rays originate within the Milky Way, the earth's galaxy, and donot come from more remote stellar space.Another of the experiments supports his recentlyrevived theory that some, at least, of the cosmic raysoriginate in the earth's upper atmosphere. Back in 1935,Dr. Compton suggested that charged particles, probablyelectrons, enter the upper atmosphere and produce photons, which are light x-rays or light waves, through encounters with nucleii in the upper atmosphere. Then,under some conditions, the energy of some of these photons is combined with that of nucleii in the atmosphereto produce penetrating, ionized rays known as bary-trons. Recently, when the English physicist, Heitler,worked out the mathematics of this theory and showedit to be well within the range of probability, Dr. Comp-ton's theory was reenforced.To test the thesis experimentally, one of his researchassistants, Dr. Marvel Schein, took a cosmic ray counterup 25,000 feet in an airplane and found that at such aheight photons were approximately thirty-seven timesmore frequent than they were at sealevel. The resistance of the atmosphere explains the comparative rarityat sea level, for the photons do not have the energy topenetrate it.Another of Dr. Compton's assistants, Dr. Volney C.Wilson, went in the other direction to study the rays.He tried the cosmic ray meters under Chicago's loop,18THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 19in the Chicago Tunnel Company's system, where thedepth was equal to a water resistance of 30 meters, andin a coal mine, where the equivalent in water resistancewas 300 meters. The results indicate that the most penetrating type of the rays are the barytrons which apparently are the grandchildren of electrons. The cosmicray stations which Dr. Compton has set up in variousparts of the world, including a steamship, furnished thebasis for several other reports, including the evidencethat the rays come from within the galaxy.FRESHMEN COME FROM AFARThirty-seven states and six foreign countries are represented in the record breaking freshman class of 759,according to an analysis made by M. J. Freeman, entrance counselor. One-third of the freshmen come fromoutside Illinois, and one-eighth of the class has traveledfrom beyond the Middle West to attend the University.Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin follow Illinois as the statesproviding the largest number of freshmen. The freshman farthest from home at the University comes fromChefoo, China. Of four European entering studentsthree are English and one is German. The other students in the first-year class from distant ports come fromHawaii, Panama, and Canada. The city of Chicagostill contributes more than half of the freshman class, according to the analysis, with a plurality of these comingfrom Hyde Park high school and the University of Chicago high school. The largest number of freshmen froma suburban high school are from Oak Park and RiverForest Township.SERGEL CONTESTAn item of interest to the University's literaryalumni is the announcement of the terms of the CharlesH. Sergei play contest of the University of Chicago, byAssociate Professor Frank H.. O'Hara. The provisionsfor 1939 are for a competition for one-act prose comedyof contemporary American life. Last year's competition,won by Miss Rosalie Moore of Berkeley, Cal., was for aone-act poetic drama. The award is $500. Closing datefor the competition this year will be May 1, 1939. Onlyone-act, original plays, hitherto unproduced and unpublished, will be considered, and the play this year mustbe a comedy of contemporary American life. Farcesare not eligible, according to the announcement.The play should take not less than twenty minutes normore than fifty minutes in production. Dramatizationsof short stories are ineligible unless the material is theNOVEMBER 28— St. Louis: James Weber Linn,speaker.NOVEMBER 30— Decatur: Frederic Woodward,speaker.DECEMBER 3— Springfield (111.): Charles W.

The prizemay be withheld if the judges determine that no playsubmitted merits the award. All rights in the play remain in the playwright. Manuscripts must be submittedin original, not carbon, copies, and bound in paper orcloth, to the Charles H. Sergei Play Contest, Universityof Chicago, Chicago, Illinois. The title page must include the writer's name and address, and all pages mustbe numbered. Illustrations, music, and other materialsupplementary to the manuscript is not desired. Thecontest was established by Annie Meyers Sergei in memory of Charles H. Sergei, prominent Chicagoan, whowas founder of the Dramatic Publishing Company.NOTESEvidence of the high standing of the newest of theUniversity's professional schools, Graduate LibrarySchool, is found in the choice of seven fellows of theCarnegie Corporation. The Corporation awarded sevenfellowships this year; three of them went to studentsalready enrolled in the School, and four to new holders,three of whom elected Chicago.The Committee on Scientific Research of the American Medical Association has made a third and final grantof a series to aid a study of high blood pressure beingconducted by Dr. Dallas B. Phemister, head of the department of surgery, and by Dr. Harwell Wilson of thedepartment of medicine.Some four hundred libraries of the country are nowdisplaying posters which announce the University'sfamous Round Table program, broadcast each Sundaymorning over fifty-six stations of NBC's red network at11:30 o'clock, Chicago time. The posters provide thesubject of each week's broadcast, a suggested readinglist, and the name of the local radio outlet, and the timeof the program in each region. From a standing startlast March, interest in the printed transcripts has increased steadily to the point where 3,000 are sold eachweek.Even in the field of studying ancient documents there istechnological process. The Oriental Institute has beentranslating the clay tablets which tell of the businessdeals, the family records, and other important facts ofthe old civilizations of the Near East. The tablets firsthad to be copied by hand, a tedious process in which askilled worker could do but two or three a day. Dr.Neilson C. Debevoise, research assistant, has found asimple means of copying by photography. By sprayingthe tablets with ammonium chloride, he gets the clearcontrast of the incised text necessary to permit pictures,and copies three tablets in an hour.DECEMBER 6— Chicago Alumni Club: AnnualFootball Dinner.DECEMBER 7— LaPorte: Howard W.

Thepiano echoed the determination of all four of us with "IWant to Be Happy" and Eva was, at least for the moment, much more so than at Greenwood Hall.By two o'clock the rain had stopped and the moon wasup over the peak of Dachstein. We charted a zig-zagcourse through Aussee's quiet streets, chanting "gaudea-mus" as we went along arm in arm. They stowed meaway a while later in a little room under the eaves ofthe Villa Gartenheim. The moon and the mountains induced the familiar nostalgia. "The City White hath fledthe earth." It was the concluding number on the program. Two voices, a soprano and a baritone, joined infrom the bedroom below. But we had no contralto. Hehad passed out. . . .5JC * *Grabner knocked on the door. "There is a HerrLevin downstairs. He has just arrived in Vienna.""Whoops," I shouted, "wash him and send him up."It was Meyer all right. He found the address of mypension at the Wiener Bankverein. He had bicycled allthe way from Paris to Vienna, over eight hundred miles.A few seconds later he sidled into the room, looking asusual like a bedraggled faun. He greeted me with asullen grunt, undressed, crawled wearily into the otherbed and went fast asleep. He was pretty well done in.VOCATIONAL ASPIRATIONS OF ENTERINGFRESHMENEach year since 1932, the entering freshmen havebeen requested to state their vocational aspirations.Many no doubt will change these objectives before theyare bread winners. While many students consistentlyfollow a given field of interest, there are always thosewho, when confronted with a questionnaire, are moreaccommodating than thoughtful. They are at the moment in the position of an eighth grade pupil who, whileat home for luncheon, announced that she had to have acareer for the afternoon's recitation.The results of the questionnaires, however, providetwo interesting facts. The first is the decrease in thenumber of freshmen who have apparently made a choiceof vocation. The second is the broadening of vocationalfields among students who think they know where theyare going. They give evidence of knowing that theworld's work is many sided. This, of course, moansthat among those who feel that they have made a selection, there are fewer freshmen thinking in terms of thetraditional occupations. For instance, whereas nineteenand a half per cent of the men of the 1932 freshmangroup designated law as their objective, only eight anda half per cent of the 1938 group made a similar choice. A couple of hours later Grabner sent up coffee withschlagobers and crescent rolls. Meyer propped himself on one elbow."Do you think," he said, apropos of nothing at all,"that we rode Teddy Linn too hard that last quarter?""No," I answered, "we didn't. He's used to it. Onlyyou shouldn't have even pretended you were going tohit him with a chair that day in English 5. People havea right to like football and stop with Matthew Arnold.You may find out some day that he helped you look atthings straight. Besides he has a good idea of howEnglish she is wrote."The future author of The Old Bunch (adv.) grunteda grudging "Maybe" and went sound asleep again.* * *I live now as I traveled then in the benevolent shadowof the University. Two blocks away you can hear thechimes in Mitchell Tower. Phil Allen, that magnificentGothic ruin, has gone to a heaven of beer and broad talk.Uncle Ferd Schevill wanders alone and happy in thesouthwest. Bob Lovett buttons himself more firmlythan ever into those incredible double-breasted suits ashe continues his fight for the ill-fed third. But the children of the new era know him not.Past my door these off -spring of the Hutchins regimeswarm toward their classes. They are appallingly bright,these young neo-Thomists, dedicated to the remaking ofthe world in the image of Aristotle. To a weak mindit is all very confusing, but I love it.Medicine has made a slight drop, but other vocationsgrouped within the natural sciences have made considerable gains. Business as a vocation declined slightlyamong their expressed interests. Among the men, teaching made a little gain from five point two per cent in1932 to seven point two per cent in 1938. However, theopposite trend exists among the women among whomtwenty per cent selected teaching in 1932, but of the1938 group, fifteen per cent appeared interested in thisfield.In conclusion, there seems to be some evidence thatthe students coming to the college and the graduates ofrecent years are attempting to adjust themselves to vocational life in a changing economic, social, and industrial society. Although many graduate with little orno specific vocational training^ they do possess trainedminds. Their breadth of training is likewise distinctlyto their advantage. And, in spite of football reverses,they are of sound body. The students' interest and success in tennis, gymnastics, swimming, and fencing givethem a rounded physical balance. A surprisingly largepercentage engage in the intramural programs. What ittakes, they possess and their ultimate success in theworld of work will continue to prove the genuinenessof the contribution which their alma mater is making.The Alumni W Ork for a Living (Continued from Page 7)NEWS OF Tf1893Charles Wm.
