Although it israther long-winded, there are allusions in it which might make it interesting to others.I did not graduate until long afterI should have done so — in the 1920's,when my husband was getting hisPh.D. This throws me out of gearin the alumni set-up. I am one ofthe constant readers of the Magazineand often am stirred to reminiscence,but this is the first time it has everreached the point of letter writing.Alice Thompson Paine, '21Chapel Hill, N. C. Dear Mamma and All:I haven't written for so long thatI have quite an accumulation ofthings to tell you about. You willthink I have been frivolous. Let mesee, perhaps I had better begin withyesterday and go backwards. Yesterday morning Miss Chase and I wentshopping. Miss Chase had a long listof things to get for her brother, andwe started out for "The Fair" — alarge apartment [sic] store, something like the "Golden Rule" in St.Paul or the "Glass Block" in Minneapolis. We started early, but it takesforty-five minutes to get down townon the cable and when we got there,there was some kind of a processionforming — a great Republican celebration and we got into a grand oldcrowd. When we finally got to "TheFair," we stayed there all the morning—and I gazed around with all myeyes while Miss Chase shopped. Ihave discovered that it is great funto watch someone else shop, for youfeel as if you have been shoppingyourself — and your pocketbook feelsjust as fat as it did before. At twelve,I left Miss Chase and started forhome (she didn't intend to be homefor luncheon and I did), but theprocession had stopped all the cars,and after waiting for about ten minutes I went over two blocks and tookthe Illinois Central home, and waslate for luncheon after all. I feelquite grand chasing around alone, although I never venture off from theroute I know best. I happen to knowthat pretty well because for the lasttwo Fridays I have gone down to theArt Institute to hear lectures on sculpture by a certain Mr. Taft. Thewhole series of lectures costs ten dollars, but University students get in ontheir matriculation cards, and as weare required later to write severalthemes on some art subject, it is veryconvenient to acquire a certainamount of information in that way.I haven't yet been up-stairs to see thepaintings, but the sculpture downstairs is beautiful. Mr. Taft escorteda party of students around the sculpture rooms, and explained the various casts and statues, but the crowdwas so large and I so small that Ididn't see or hear much.The day before yesterday I wasover to Mr. MacClintock's to dinner,and had a very pleasant time. Mr.and Mrs. MacClintock are just aslovely as they can be, and their fourchildren are ideal children.

M. BURDENA reconnaissanceinto themeteorological futureALTHOUGH it is not quite correct to say that theprofession of meteorology has its greatest application in the field of aeronautics, it is true that aviation is directly or indirectly responsible for the quickeningrenaissance which meteorology has experienced duringthe last twenty years. Aviation has furnished the necessitywhich has "mothered" the invention of new techniquesand has given to meteorology the most phenomenalgrowth in its history. Further, it is quite likely that thegreatest opportunities for meteorologists in the near future will be found in rapidly expanding fields of airtransport and related aeronautical industries. No doubtit behooves me to be somewhat cautious in venturing ameteorological prediction among experts who have specialized for several months in the latest methods ofweather forecasting, but there are aspects of aeronauticalmeteorology about whose future I can be confident andit is a pleasure, as well as a privilege, to suggest some ofthe opportunities which I foresee for the meteorologist.Aeronautical authorities throughout the world agreethat we are at the threshold of an Air Age in which airtransport will become a principal form of transportation— probably the principal form as far as long distancepassenger and mail transportation are concerned. Thewar has accelerated the development of transport aviation to an extraordinary degree, not so much by technical advance in design or construction, though thesehave been remarkable, as by the expansion of actual airtransport operation to undreamed of proportions. Thebest domestic transport techniques are being applied ona world-wide scale, and men and goods are moving byair on an unprecedented scale. The leaders of every formof human activity from ordnance experts to cardinalsare traveling by air to an extent which it would havetaken years of sales effort to achieve under normal con ditions. The potential leaders of the next generation aredoing more than traveling by air — many of them are tobe found among the pilots of our transport and militaryaircraft. From their ranks will come the first great statesmen who are also airmen.The world-circling air routes established during thisemergency will continue to serve in the post-war periodas civil airways for use of commercial air transport. Theextent to which they are shrinking the size of the globehas been dramatized in a hundred ways by our press, ourradio, and even our art museums. Distance in terms ofmiles has been almost meaningless. No two importantpoints on the globe are further apart by air than NewYork and San Francisco are by train. Substantially anynation on earth is less than fifty hours from any othernation. The mere proximity created by the airplane willnot in itself solve the world's problems — in fact it maywell continue to produce at least as many problems asit solves. Without question, however, it will create a greatand fascinating business where men of character and intelligence can find satisfactory and constructive careers.And on the ability and character of the men who run ourairlines depends to a large degree the part which airtransport will play in world affairs.The expansion in air transportation in the great industrial nations of the world will be tremendous, althoughthey have highly developed surface transport systems.The Civil Aeronautics Administration expects a five-foldincrease in domestic air traffic in 1946 as compared with1942. In the field of international air transport, theAdministration expects a six-fold increase in passengertraffic in the 1946 figures over those for 1942, and aneight-fold increase in mail traffic. It is not too much toexpect that within a few years after the war 70 per centof our passenger traffic and all of our long distance mailtraffic will go by air. The amount of merchandise whichwill be carried by air will depend mainly on the ingenuityof our designers and air transport operators in reducingcosts, but it is not too much to assert that it will not belong before at least half our present express and parcelpost traffic is air-borne.34 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEIn the field of private flying the opportunities are moredifficult to estimate accurately but the potentialities areso great as to challenge the imagination. There were only25,000 private airplanes in the United States before thewar compared to 350,000 motor boats and 27,000,000automobiles. Obviously the private airplane can ne*. rreplace the automobile, but at least part of the giganticgap between the use of the two types of vehicles will bereduced. The rate at which it will be closed will dependfirst upon the degree to which the first cost of aircraftcan be reduced — and here the war with its application ofmass production techniques has taught us much — andsecond the utility of the private aircraft of the future tothe average man. And here both meteorologist and aircraft designer will have an important part to play.The opportunities for air transport in undevelopedcountries which have not developed elaborate surfacetransport systems arc relatively speaking even greater thanin the United States, though of course the total volumeof air traffic may well be less at first than in the moremature nations. In undeveloped countries air transportcan actually perform miracles and change the distributionof cities and the population pattern. It is easy to forgetwhat a hodgepodge the transport systems of the industrialcountries really are. They are archaeological dumpheapsconsisting of remnants of the canal and post road systemsof the eighteenth century, the railroad networks of thenineteenth, and the highly developed motor roads of theearly twentieth. A continent which is just developing itstransport system like South America, Africa, or Asia has unusual opportunities to make the best of air transportSuch continents will never build surface transport sy8terns on anything like the scale that they would have itheir transport systems had reached their peak at th<jbeginning of the twentieth century. Think what thi|means. Hundreds of villages along the routes of projectedtranscontinental railways will be doomed to slumber for.ever, deprived of the chance of becoming large and flour.ishing towns whose names would have been known toevery world traveler. At the same time the tiny hamletsnot on the routes of the proposed railroads will grow toworld importance because they are to be stopping pointson the trunk airlines of the future. New industries andnew settlements will be established in remote areas of theworld as a result of air transport which is almost completely free of barriers imposed by surface obstacles.In all this vast development the meteorologists of theworld will play a vitally important part. There is no needhere to establish proof that meteorological service is essential to efficient and safe air transportation. It is obviousthat the great expansion in air transportation just referred to will bring a corresponding increase in demandfor the service of the meteorologist. If the record of thepast is any indication, this demand will call not only formore meteorologists but also for more exacting servicefrom all meteorologists. Exact knowledge of weather conditions was an urgent need in many fields of business andindustry long before the invention of the airplane, but ithas taken the accelerated tempo of the Air Age and theaviator's vital interest in atmospheric conditions to crys-The National Anthem opens the fifth graduation exercises of meteorologists.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 5tallize what was formerly an urgent need into an immediate necessity. Step by step under the pressure of aeronautical requirements, the meteorologist has found waysand means to give more exact information of weatherconditions. Further progress in this direction is inevitableand as the potentialities of the science increase, the opportunities for the professional meteorologist will grow.No one knows just what the pattern of post-war organization will be. We can be quite sure that whereverAmerican influence is felt, there will be considerable latitude for private enterprise and we may expect that legitimate competition will continue as a primary stimulus toprogress and efficiency. Development of commercial aviation in the United States has been the admiration of allnations of the world. Many reasons have been advancedfor the success of our development. One of these is, inmy opinion, so fundamental as to be almost overriding.We must never forget that the United States is the onlylarge country in the world where air transport has beenoperated primarily as a business. Industrial enterpriseand business management have developed commercialaviation in the United States and this, the principal reason for our success, is, I believe, the touchstone for development of international air transportation along lineswhich will serve the world and not increase internationalfriction.To some extent at least this same philosophy applies tothe development of the profession of meteorology. Thereare good reasons why meteorological science has evolvedin the past largely as a government function. Modernadvisory services dealing specifically with current weatherconditions are based almost entirely on synoptic meteorology. This requires an extensive network of observing stations covering oceans as well as continents, and callingfor continuous vigilance on the part of thousands ofobservers, day and night. It takes an organization toolarge and too costly for private enterprise to maintain;like the postal service, it had to be financed and developedby government as a service for the common welfare. Moreover, weather and climate, like our soil, our minerals, andother natural resources, are of vital national interest.General warnings to the public advising of dangerousstorms, cold waves, and other severe weather conditions isinherently one of the functions of government in the interest of public security, something like police powers.Synoptic meteorology requires prompt and widespreadcommunication channels and international exchange ofreports which can best be arranged and maintained by government. It has been the history ofsynoptic meteorology throughout the world that public need for weather information service has beenbrought to recognition through the efforts of scientificinstitutions or commercial agencies which brought pressure upon government to amalgamate disorganized localmeteorological facilities into a unified organization andextend them to cover the regions over which the respective government has jurisdiction. This integration of basicsynoptic services was the only way in which standard and unitorm observations could be collected regularly eachday.In this respect meteorology differs from most professions. The astronomer, the geologist, the lawyer, and thephysician can establish their offices and operate for themost part independently of others in their respectivefields, and certainly without dependence upon daily dispatch collection of information from remote places, suchas the meteorologist requires. This dependence upon thenational synoptic network maintained by government explains why most meteorologists have been identified withthe official government weather service. With the advent of aviation, the latent possibilities of the professionhave been released and in recent years there hasbeen an accelerated trend towards the private practice ofmeteorology.A rather imperceptible but nevertheless fundamentalchange in the scope of the profession has opened the wayfor further growth of private practice in this field. Solong as the capabilities of the meteorologist were limitedto broad advices and forecasts of the type commonly usedby the general public, the demand could be pretty welltaken care of by relatively few government meteorologists.As the capacity of the profession is developed to givespecialized information designed to serve individual needsand profitable to individual interests, the demands uponthe meteorologist will increase a thousand-fold and thegovernment meteorologist can no longer find time to serveall of these needs. The businessman and the corporationthat can increase efficiency and reduce losses through useof more specialized weather information than that contained in forecasts for the general public will need to employ a company meteorologist for the purpose. He willwant his individual interests kept constantly in mind sohe can be advised whenever changes in weather willaffect his operations. The possibilities in this field up tothe present time have been utilized to some extent by thecommercial air transport companies. Many of them haveemployed company meteorologists to look after theirweather interests. When we remember that weather directly or indirectly affects almost everything we do — ourfood supply, our health, our occupations, and our modesof living — we can believe that the potential opportunitiesfor the meteorologist in business and industry are limitedonly by the capacity of the profession to furnish the information desired. The developments in weather sciencefostered by aeronautics have increased the professionalcapabilities of the meteorologist and accelerated the trendtowards private practice in this field.There are two general stages involved in the application of synoptic meteorology and these necessarily shapeits professional practices. The first stage is the basicsynoptic network and the weather maps and advices forcommon use of business, industry, and the general public,a service conducted by the official national weather service. The second stage is the specialized interpretation ofweather maps for use of the air transport operator, the(Continued on page 15)rian or the president of the Chamber ot Commerce or apublic library trustee) would call for universal responseon a given day. In a middlewestern college town for example, at eight o'clock on a Saturday morning, fifty automobiles started from the college campus, each with adriver and half a dozen Boy or Girl Scouts, Camp FireGirls, etc. Routes had been planned for each of them.Before night a call had been made at every house in town.The newspapers had heralded the need a week in advanceso that a pile of books was waiting in every front hall.Over eight thousand books were brought to be sorted atthe college library, and they were the kind of books thatthe boys in the services are clamorous for.The actors and musicians playing in New York whenthe campaign began, under the chairmanship of the author of Boy Meets Girl, gave a week's series of noon hourshows on the steps of the New York Public Library.Maurice Evans read the "Gutenberg Address," whichChristopher Morley had written especially to open thedrive. While all the green buses on Fifth Avenue stoppedto look at her, Gypsey Rose Lee in a mink coat and bewitching hat asked Clifton Fadiman: "How would youlike to be up here before all these people with all yourclothes on?"Publishers and booksellers followed the authors in offering help. The American Mercury gave a hundred thousand of the slick-covered small mysteries which go easilyIN 54 B. C. books were part of the impedimenta ofwar, for Caesar's "line-a-day" diary certainly got overto Britain. Cromwell's men carried "the shouldier'sBible" and Napoleon had a traveling library box on hiscampaigns from which he threw away the volumes hehad read. In 1917 the American Library Association, asone of the six welfare agencies admitted to the trainingcamps, manned library buildings in all of the large cantonments provided by funds of the Carnegie Corporation.Their uniformed librarians even got across to the European trenches. Their wares proved so effective in keepingup courage and dispelling boredom that Congress hasvoted money ever since for up-to-date library service forthe Army and Navy. Even before Pearl Harbor, theAmerican Red Cross and the USO had decided to combine in financing a campaign to collect gifts of books ifthe American Library Association would sort and distribute them. A national office was opened in New Yorkand state directors appointed to organize local collection centers in every town in the country.The Victory Book Campaign opened in January 1942.Every community handled the appeal in its own way,but not one refused to do its utmost. The largest contribution in cash from any school in the United Stateswas given by a small Negro parish in Louisiana. Largestper capita gifts were received from towns under 50,000in population where a good organizer (the college libra-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 7into a pea-jacket pocket and are comfortable to hold in ahospital bed. For the second year of the campaign apublicity committee headed by Franklin P. Adams, Norman Cousins, editor of the Saturday Review of Literature,and Edward Bernays, head of one of the greatest of NewYork's advertising firms, made the plans for a nationalappeal to radio sponsors, newspapers, businesses, and organizations.Over fifteen million books have been received as gifts.Of course not all of them are suited to the armed services. The ABC Bunny and The Rosary have been sentto migratory labor camps where women and children areeager for reading. Rare out-of-print and autographedvolumes have been sold at auction for enough to buysome of the current, expensive technical books on aviation and diesel engines so ravenously swallowed in camps.In warehouses at several locations the books for theNavy and Marines are collected arid given out to ships,naval bases, and Navy hospitals on request to the directorof libraries, Bureau of Naval Personnel, Washington,D. C. Each new battleship, cruiser, and destroyer is likewise equipped with a library approximating a book to aman.The Army has an efficient library organization in eachof its nine corps areas. The eight western states, for example, are covered by the librarian of the Ninth ServiceCommand at Fort Douglas, Utah. He collects the giftbooks in four branch processing centers at Seattle, SanFrancisco, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City. Books aresent out from these centers to over a hundred libraries incamps, bases, and hospitals. In addition, more than 2,000traveling library boxes, each containing forty books forassorted tastes, go to isolated posts and detachments.The boxes pass from one group to another every month.Women have replaced men as camp librarians in thiswar. They must meet strict civil service requirements forcollege education, professional training, and experience.With characteristic thoroughness and system, the Armyis now boxing books at the embarkation points to go tothe scenes of foreign fighting. Towns on both coasts aregetting an increasing number of requests for these booksto be read in jungles of the South Seas, bleak outposts inAlaska, or for the men left to watch in the charredregions of Europe and Africa, after the fighting has rolledahead.A letter received by V-mail from a boy in charge of aship that supplies our soldiers with food somewhere in thePacific has recently been sent me by Lora Rich, '07, wifeof Carl B. Roden of the Chicago Public Library.I did have to laugh at your asking "Do youhave time to read?" In the last ten days I havefinished War and Peace; read The Tempest andMerry Wives oj Windsor; torn through Cimarron and Show Boat; demolished a thirty-year-oldOppenheim and reread Captain Blood. The lastfour were in the box of books we took aboard from the Victory Book Campaign. Then lastnight I took down my book of poetry and withfirm resolve set myself to an evening of it.Strangely enough I enjoyed it, even though Iwas interrupted in the midst of Keats by an airraid alarm. Due to the plethora of coral reefsand other hindrances, night navigation on thisparticular station is not advisable, so we drop thehook at night, and upon the order, "Darkenship," I retire to my cabin, batten down theports, turn on the fan, and break out the book.From a brigadier general in a Coast Artillery fort,from a captain at an Air Corps training camp, from a station hospital at a flying field, from chaplains and specialservices officers all over the world, thanks are coming forthe books they have received and appeals for more andmore and more.Libraries all over the country are going to continue tocollect books as long as the war goes on. They shouldbe exactly the books you don't like to part with, the booksyou have enjoyed yourself and might want to readagain.

WILSON, Ph.D. "26Still small voices callfor understanding of anew and intimate worldA UNIVERSITY convocation pays formal recognition to the fact that certain individuals have maderecognizable progress in their formal education.Under the difficulties of the times these individuals deserve full credit for such an achievement. However, alleducation is not housed within university walls in thesedays. Many of us are learning by being plunged into newactivities and new settings. Even the educators are beingeducated. Many of them have been drawn off into government service and, under the demands of non-academictasks, have learned strange and wonderful things. It willbe interesting to hear their experiences when they returnto the university. They will be grateful to be homeagain, but they will inevitably be somewhat different.We might anticipate the recital of their homecomingattitudes by considering the parable of a prodigal son ofthis University. When he heard the guns of Pearl Harbor, he asked the University for the portion which fellto him and took his journey into a far country, that is tosay, government service in Washington. There, for a yearand a half, he applied his portion to what is — by university standards — the riotous living of war research. Nowthis prodigal son has returned soberly to these halls. Heis afflicted with a nostalgia for his intellectual home anda hunger for subject matter of more permanent value.The prodigal returns to his University home with agrateful new appreciation of the solidity of its foundations and the enduring strength of its timbers. The structure is sound and the organization of its rooms is wellplanned. But he looks at the University home with eyesthat have been trained on other perspectives for severalmonths. He states his first reaction on return: "I didn'tremember that it was cut up into so many small rooms;and I didn't remember that there were so few windows.The framework of the building is excellent, but wouldn'tthere be more light and air if the rooms were larger andhad windows looking out onto the world?"Before this prodigal journeyed into a far country, heoccupied one of those little rooms. It had certain advantages. It was possible to concentrate on a subjectmatter with profitable intensity. There was no distraction of sharing space with other individuals or of windows opening out onto vistas of interesting and changing nature. The result of such concentration was a refined distillate of scholarship. Advocates of such seclusionwould call the distillate pure; opponents might askwhether it is also sterile.In Washington no one is troubled by too much privacy. In Washington there are windows opening ontoevery part of the world. Through these windows one isaware of the closeness of the rest of the world. In thatcrowded and feverish atmosphere war research of verycreditable standards is being carried on. This may notbe the testimony of the newspapers, but it is true, nevertheless. Scholars recruited from every part of the countryand animated by devotion to a common purpose stimulateeach other to unsparing endeavor and sound production.It is a heart-warming experience to recall how the specialists on such diverse fields as the Chinese classics, Germanpolitical history, the social organization of African tribes,Babylonian cuneiform, the geography of South America,and Japanese art work closely together in a commoncause. The mutual sense of participation is a stimulantthat results in work of real quality.None of these war research workers was trained forthe tasks which Washington has thrown at him. It isa proof of the essential domestic peacefulness of thiscountry that we had no civilian specialists on global warfare. We had no scholars who knew foreign cultures inall their several manifestations. We had first-rate men onthis or that aspect of a foreign civilization, and they havecarried their talents over to such diverse problems as thelocation of industrial plants, the carrying capacities ofrailroads, the alliances of political organizations, the production and consumption of foodstuffs, and the ownership of foreign newspapers. Just as we were militarily unprepared for war, so we were intellectually, unprepared.And similarly we have done extremely well.However, although it is possible to feel a satisfactionin the accomplishments of these previously untrained research workers, just as we are proud of the achievementsof our previously untrained armed forces, the essentialpoint is that we were caught unready in both spheres.And the intellectual unpreparedness is a far greater deficitthan the military unpreparedness. Certainly we can fight,but just what sort of a world are we fighting for? Andwhat sort of a world are we fighting in? It should be afirst principle that this country, whether for the emergency needs of war or for the more orderly relations ofpeace, should have a broader understanding of a newworld. The activities of war demand a series of specificfacts which lead to the accomplishment of definite actions.Such facts should be set upon the foundation of a broadunderstanding of world cultures and movements, in order8THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 9that they may have real meaning. Understanding of suchfundamental nature must come out of the universities. Itis basically intellectual, the concept of situations andprocesses divorced from political prejudice or economicpressure. Only in the atmosphere which respects truth forits own sake can we achieve a proper understanding ofcontemporary world cultures. Only a university cherishesthat devotion to the truth.I just used the term "new world." That usage wasdeliberate. All over this globe there are cultures makingvigorous attempts to break with the past. These arecivilizations to which we have given only a passing andcondescending nod. We have not attempted to knowthem, because we have assumed that they were perennially backward. Now we must take them into account, because we cannot escape working contacts with them.Please do not misunderstand the words "working contacts." I am not here discussing diplomatic alliances, orpolitical or military responsibility, or foreign trade, or relief and physical reconstruction. I am discussing thosecontacts which are lumped together under the heading"cultural relations." The United States has already received an embarrassing number of requests to assist struggling nations in technological, scientific, and intellectualadvances. These are appeals which we find it difficult toreject, the Macedonian call: "Come over and help us!"It seems to us appropriate that these countries should turnto us, and we feel a responsibility to carry to them themodern elements of culture which they are requesting.It is a stirring experience to see these cultures tryingto lift themselves into the modern world after centuriesin which they have followed the age-old traditions andmethods. Now they are no longer willing to follow away of life which makes them dependent; they wish tobe strong in their own right. From a preoccupation witha primitive type of agriculture, they strain toward manufacturing. From decentralized feudalism they moveswiftly into centralized nationalism. From rigid religiousconservatism they move somewhat uncertainly towardreligious modernism. Above all, they want science, technology, and modern education immediately. Such nationsas China, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Abyssinia, Mexico,Colombia are astir with ambition, with a patriotic nationalism that accepts a highly centralized government as themost efficient instrument toward modernization and industrialization. They demand political and economic independence. They are in a fractic hurry to catapultthemselves into modernity, good or bad, all in one generation.Few of them can make that leap out of their ownintellectual resources alone; they must have help. Butthey are aware of dangers in seeking help from many ofthe western powers: technical advisers are so often thefirst agents of imperialism. So they turn to the UnitedStates as the most distant and least suspected of thepowers and ask that we help them so that they mayultimately stand on their own feet without help. Ournational temperament cannot resist an appeal of that kind. The missionary impulse is deeply rooted in ourhearts. A memory of our own struggle for independencepredisposes us to sympathize with similar aspirations.There is a flattering urgency in a plea which says, ineffect, "What the United States did for herself, we wishto do for ourselves; we want to become like Americans."It carries an implication— sometimes explicitly stated —that these cultures will become democratic. We feel thatparticipation in their plans is in our own interests.Their requests are specific. I may not name names, butI may give some indication of the nature of these requests.A desert country asks for an agricultural mission, to increase the productivity of its oases. A mountain countryasks for irrigation engineers and teachers of mathematics.An Asiatic land asks for teachers of medicine and economics. A Near Eastern land asks for all our scientificand scholarly journals of the past two years. An Orientalnation wants Boy Scout leaders and a mission to reorganize rural education. A Latin American nation wants documentary films showing normal American life in thetowns and in the country — not propaganda, simply documentation. Everywhere they want scientific and technological books, but they also want books on Americanhistory and biography, statements on the normal American life. They have taken this country as a model anda mentor. Both now in war and also in the post-warperiod the United States has a brilliant opportunity anda terrifying responsibility in the field of cultural relations.It is a terrifying responsibility because Americans arenot yet intellectually prepared to help these people attheir point of greatest need: an adjustment from the oldto the new without doing violence to the values which areinherent in each of these cultures. Certainly we can teachmedicine and engineering and agriculture. We can overhaul their law codes and reorganize their police systemsand train Boy Scout leaders and put their finances on asounder basis. But we cannot and should not try to Americanize them all in one generation or one century. Thereare elements in these cultures which are of enduring valuewhich should therefore be preserved with all rever-FROM BACHELORS TO BATTLEWar struck at the September Convocation andlopped off another 25 per cent from the numberreceiving degrees a year ago.

If we go to the.se countries in our eager innocence, our aid may be used for distinctly nationalisticpurposes, the industrialization of a highly centralized andnon-democratic state. Nevertheless, it seems inevitablethat we shall receive and meet these appeals throughoutour generation. How can we organize the intelligence tohandle the task with a proper understanding?In part that must come from a resurgence of the democratic spirit in this country, so that Americans treat individuals, groups, races, and nations with a sympatheticrespect for individual differences. It is urgent that weask ourselves what democracy really means and whetherwc want to abandon the concept or make it a workingreality. It is difficult to see how we can have successfulcultural relations with other peoples except in the democratic spirit, and it is difficult to see how we can achievethe democratic spirit unless we achieve it at home.The other part of the problem is the organization of ourknowledge of world cultures on rational bases. What arethe fundamental elements of Chinese culture, for example? Will it do violence to an agricultural people,with a society based on strong family ties, with a religious-philosophical system of a. contemplative nature, withnatural resources of certain specific commodities, and withalready conflicting political ideologies — will it do violenceto this system to attempt industrial modernization? Theexample is fairly typical of all the cultures discussed.We must know them and understand them in their ownterms before we can give them help which meets theirneeds permanently.Fundamental understanding of that kind will not beundertaken by our government. The government isgeared to act in situations on the basis of experience, butnot to organize research leading to a broader comprehension. The task is one of an intellectual nature, and thatis clearly the responsibility of the universities and of theuniversities alone. However, it can only be undertakenin those universities which already possess the resourcesnecessary for the additional step of attempting to understand modern world cultures in themselves and in theirinterrelations.To undertake such a task a university must have strongand well-balanced schools and departments, with adequate library resources. It must have a tradition forindependent research of a basic nature. It must not bea vocational school or an institution which pursues thelatest fads of American educational life. Yet it must besufficiently independent of fixed educational tradition sothat it can pioneer new frontiers. The conditions of lifechange, and we must be flexible enough to explore thenew intellectual frontiers which open up before our minds.A university should further have an international standing, with scholars who are known abroad and with acurrent interest in the problems of other cultures. Aboveall, a university must have a fundamental reverence forthe truth, for basic concepts as distinct from workingpractices. These are the elements which should be al- JOHN A. WILSONready present as the necessary foundation stones uponwhich to build world understanding.And so we return to the prodigal son who has comeback to his University home and murmurs a plea forwindows opening out onto the world. He sees individualdepartments and schools which are strong and able. TheUniversity of Chicago is organized to teach languages, 'those necessary tools for the understanding of another culture. The University knows that a literature is the voice ofa people, and not a series of grammatical and syntacticalexercises. The University is strong in history, the indispensable background for the comprehension of the present. The geographers and anthropologists of the University stand high in their field. The University hasdepartments in the social sciences adept in the applicationof principles to situations. This faculty has been assembled from the four quarters of the world and brings anintercultural spirit to its research. Isn't it time to cutwindows onto the world?There is also that other feature of the University structure: those little separated rooms. You cannot decimatea culture and study its various elements in isolation. Ifyou want to understand the political forces you muststudy the current literature. In all these new culturesliterature is strongly affected by religion — whether positively or negatively. Religious manifestations appear asan aspect of the social organization of a people. But ifyou are studying society you must study it in its economicoperation, and economics inevitably brings us around thecircle to politics again. All of these elements are interlocked and interdependent. Any real comprehension of aculture will be a rounded and integrated understanding.It is most unfortunate that our universities treat religion,for example, as a subject to be handled at arm's length,either studied historically or consigned to the professionalcustody of a theological faculty.

The culture of a people should bestudied in its unity, and not in separate compartments.Furthermore, what is now happening in China or Indiaor Russia or Turkey or Mexico or the Argentine is essentially the same process, a struggle for domestic strengthand independence. The students of different cultures canlearn from each other in a world of common movementand common feeling. If we continue to work in our ownlittle rooms there is a danger that we may end by mumbling in our own beards instead of speaking out clearly toothers. It would seem reasonable to ask whether some ofthe small rooms in the University might be regrouped intolarger rooms, so that common studies may profit frommutual exchange and stimulation.These principles of the understanding of a new worldapply not only to a university, but also to each one ofus as individuals. Every American finds himself in achanging world and has this same call to understandhis new setting. Understanding — with the right balancing of ends and means — is the one control that the layman can apply to the forces of other civilizations. Weare members of a democracy, and democracy lays uponus the obligation to respect the other man's way of life.A COUPLE of years ago Cyrus LeRoy Baldridge,noted illustrator and winner of the country'sleading prize in etching, wondered if he reallyknew "what was happening on the Quadrangles." Athirty-year absence, uneasiness provoked by loose criticismof the new plan, and an abiding love for Alma Materall stimulated a trip from New York to the Quadrangles.For a week, Baldridge, '11 — author of / Was Thereand illustrator of a host of classic prose works — becameBaldridge, '44; and he, together with his new classmates,attended lectures which were and are strictly optional."Another young professor," Baldridge narrates, "is talking of wars, colonies, empires. I feel more at home here.Yes, I learned about some of these things ten years afterI graduated."Recognizing that what was true for Baldridge is trueof most alumni, the University of Chicago is pioneeringin another educational field. Because its job is to makea man, to President Hutchins "education is a lifelongprocess." And on the theory that two strands of liberaleducation must be stronger than one, especially when thesecond is threaded with the wise beads of experience, theUniversity and the Alumni Association are offering a second try at the tough problems posed by the vast materials of the history of human culture.For the past two years courses in several major fields In that spirit we may move into a changing future armewith honesty and intelligence.You recall how the prophet Elijah fled before tlvengeance of Jezebel and sought refuge in a cave in tlwilderness on Horeb, the mountain of God.

Since this stage is related for the most part toprivate enterprise, it soon goes beyond the authorizedfunctions of government and therefore rests with the private meteorologist.The primary synoptic network included in the firststage must be a stable and permanent organization designed to furnish basic weather data to all interests, civiland military, and for all purposes, current, past, and future including climatological uses. It is the foundationupon which all specialized meteorological services rest andit furnishes the standard data for all manner of weathermaps and interpretations. In the United States this service is the function of the Weather Bureau. The meteorological organizations of the Army and Navy are specialized services designed to serve particular military needs.In war, they expand enormously and in many areas, particularly in remote theaters, they not only furnish theinterpretative forecasts for the armed forces, but also supplement the observations of the permanent network whenthey are sparse. They expand or contract in scope, ortransfer their stations as required to meet military exigency, using the regular synoptic network of the permanent civil meteorological service whenever possible.There will always be opportunity for meteorologists inthe government service- — the first stage referred to above.The number of meteorologists employed by the UnitedStates Weather Bureau has increased rapidly during recent years, especially in its aeronautics branch, and thecontinued development of aeronautics promises furtherincreases in the Weather Bureau. Moreover, the meteorological facilities now beingextended on internationalroutes as part of militaryoperation will undoubtedlybecome part of the civil airways system after the warand more meteorologistswill be needed to staff important offices in that system. It is to the best interestof meteorological scienceand professional meteorologists in general to maintainan adequate and well-staffed national meteorological organization since itssynoptic network is the basisfor all current forecastingand advisory services. Awell coordinated and uniform basic meteorologicalservice under the WeatherBureau, with standards inprofessional qualifica tions and techniques second to none, is the cornerstoneof meteorological progress in this country.As for personal opportunities in the private practiceof meteorology after the war, no one can state the prospects with certainty. In the United States, the officialattitude towards the development of this field has beenmore liberal and progressive than in any other country.Some of the leading nations hold to the view that it iscontrary to public interest to encourage the private practice of meteorology. This view parallels the ideas commonly held in these countries with respect to governmentversus private ownership of the major public utilities, including air transport. In the United States we believethere are great opportunities for the private meteorologist.There will doubtless also be opportunities for the meteorologist in Latin American countries where meteorologyis not yet as well organized and where air transportationoffers advantages relatively greater even than in theUnited States. It has been stated on good authority thatair freight is cheaper in Mexico than mule packs for cargoes such as coffee, chicle, and concentrates of ore whenthey must be shipped from inaccessible regions.Every pilot training school- — and there will be many ofthem needed to produce the flow of pilots required for expanding air transport and for private flying as well asfor a military reserve — will need a competent instructorin the principles of aeronautical meteorology. The timemay come when every important college and universitywill offer cultural, if not professional, courses in this subject. An example of the growing interest in meteorological education is given in the course now in progress inMedellin, Colombia, under direction of the Weather Bureau and with the sponsorship of the State Department.The first enlisted man to salute the new officer gets thedollar.16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINETwo hundred meteorological observers from the twentyLatin American Republics are enrolled in this six months'training course. Forty of these have been brought to theUnited States for enrolment in the classes in meteorologyat five universities, one of which is the University ofChicago.I have not mentioned that branch of meteorologyknown as climatology. The climate of any region is anatural resource open to intelligent exploitation much thesame as our mineral, forest, and water power resources.The science of climatology has made little progress in thelast few decades and it awaits the attention of competentexperts with the inspiration to develop new techniquesthat will bring it in line with developments in synopticmeteorology. There should be a place for an agriculturalclimatologist on the staff of each of our forty-eight agricultural colleges and experiment stations. There theycould work with the agronomist, the horticulturalist, andthe soil scientist to discover the kinds of crops and theirappropriate varieties for best results under various clima-tological conditions. There will also be opportunities forthe climatologist in the several fields of engineering, particularly in civil engineering and hydrology. Aero-electricinstallations as a source of power have been the subjectof considerable research and may possibly offer new openings from the meteorologist.As for the future possibilities of aeronautical meteorology as a science, I should leave that to the experts whoknow its possibilities and its limitations. I am familiarwith the fact that meteorology deals with some of themost complex natural phenomena and that precision inthe practice of applied meteorology is extremely difficult.But science has a way of solving difficult problems. Timeafter time complex phenomena have given up theirsecrets under concerted and intensive scientific researchand I would advise meteorologists not to be too conservative in outlook.In the post-war field of aeronautical meteorology, therewill be many new facilities. Instead of weather mapsdrawn independently in hundreds of different offices,many without adequate facilities, it will doubtless becomethe practice to disseminate synoptic and prognostic chartsfrom principal forecasting centers by facsimile or otherelectronic method of reproduction. A start has been madein this direction by the master analysis transmitted fromthe Weather Bureau in Washington. There will be inflight reports and regular flight weather observers analogous to the vessel weather observer of the past to furnishupper air observations supplementing the network ofradiosonde stations. There will be special reconnaissanceflights to obtain more definite information of severe atmospheric disturbances, such as hurricanes. New electronic devices will be developed to scan or sound atmospheric conditions from a distance. Possibly a system ofautomatic weather stations along the lines of experimentalwork before the war will be established in the Arctic andon the oceans to remove the blind spots that have alwaysexisted in weather maps of the hemisphere. There may be improved methods for measuring extra-terrestrial elements, such as solar radiation, whose influence upon ourweather is still undetermined. With such aids parts of thepuzzle of atmospheric circulation and weather behaviornow missing may be discovered and the entire picture mayturn out to be simpler than we expect.The United States already has one of the most advanced meteorological organizations in the world. Itsfacilities surpass those of any other nation except SovietRussia. They include more than 350 first-order stations incontinental United States and territories, more than 500airway weather stations, and almost 7,000 climatologicaland other special stations. Even before the war the upperair observational network of the United States was faradvanced, with more than 100 pilot balloon stations andmore than 30 radiosonde stations. This organization isan excellent foundation upon which to build further advances in aeronautical meteorology.Weather is one of the major determining factors in human affairs and weather science should rank with themost important physical sciences. It differs from thosesciences which deal with the manufacture of things ormaterials desired by man in that we do not expect tomake weather to order, at least on a large scale; but foreknowledge of weather conditions and particularly morecomplete information of future weather will be of inestimable value in the modern world and the Air Agewhich will dominate it. Meteorology has been slow todevelop because its secrets have been hidden in the upperair, or in remote regions of the globe, and perhaps inextra-terrestrial effects where they have been beyond thereach of the scientist. The Air Age furnishes the meansand the stimulus which will enable the meteorologist toget at many of these secrets. With improvements in techniques, the opportunities of the meteorologist to play aleading role in aeronautics, agriculture, business and commerce, engineering, industry, and transportation will begreatly multiplied.COLLEGE GRADUATES WITH SCIENTIFIC ANDTECHNICAL TRAINING NEEDED FOR WARRESEARCH AND TEACHINGHeavy demands for research workers and teachersare being made upon the Office of Scientific Personnel of the National Research Council.

It was agreed that the glow was produced bydust particles, but the sun, like a vast vacuum cleaner,is constantly absorbing the dust. A source more productive than the collisions of comets had to be found toaccount for the dust supply.Dr. Fessenkoff calculated that the asteroids wouldbe capable of producing enough dust to account for theglow, for although they are small — a mile or two indiameter — they are many. Their chances of collisions aretherefore high, because of the relatively high ratio ofsurface to volume, and they are small enough so thattheir own gravitation would be insufficient to hold ontothe dust as does this pull in larger bodies. The moon,for example, is covered with a thick layer of dust.Vale Atque AveJust ten years ago this month the writer of these columns arrived on the campus fresh from a Milwaukee highschool. The World's Fair was on. Harry Gideonse in thesocial sciences general course and John Putnam Barden,editor of the Maroon, were the heroes of the class. Thismonth, the decade completed, with ninety-six of 120months spent on the Midway, the writer departs. All ofthe World's Fair except Fort Dearborn has been torndown. Barden is in the Army. Gideonse is in Brooklyn. DON MORRISThe decade has been anything but dull. The New Planwas beginning to be old in 1933-34, but it was in thatyear that Georg Mann, the first student to graduate underit, received his bachelor's. The next year was the year ofthe Walgreen investigation, to be followed two years laterwith a quarter million dollar gift from the drug storeoperator. In the same year T. V. Smith ran for and waselected to the state Senate through the machinations ofJerry Kerwin and the students in the political science department. The next year was Jay Berwanger's last andin some ways greatest year on the football team, and atthe end of the same year Phoenix, now dead, and Comment, also now dead, merged but rejected the proposedname of Phoenament. The merged product folded afterone year to be superseded by Pulse, now a war casualty.Sic transeunt student publications.So down the years. In the next year A. A. Stagg cameback to the Midway and beat Chicago. Eduard Benesjoined the faculty. In 1939 Chicago withdrew from intercollegiate football. In 1940 the war training program began in January with the training of pilots for the CivilAeronautics Authority. The fiftieth anniversary year was1941. Exhausted after a spree of honorary degrees inwhich thirty-five were awarded in one day at the Anniversary Convocation, the University has awarded no moreto this day. In 1942 the faculty voted to establish thenew College Plan. The University was turning out military and civilian personnel for the war program at therate of some fifteen thousand a year.And this brings us almost up to the present. Last spring,eight years after the first graduation under the New Plan,the first students under the Newer Plan received the bachelor's in the College. This fall Mr. Hutchins begins hisfifteenth year as president of the University; from now onmost students entering the College will have been bornsince his inauguration. .Thus the years. Help yourself. Take some.Beat the drum and blow the fife,As this mortal leaves to make somem Footprints on the sands of Life.18 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEWith Our Alumni in the RockiesYou are herewith invited to join the associate editor in the Rockies for a visit with nearly onehundred members of our Chicago family in Denver, Salt Lake City, and Ogden.

The armywanted to eliminate Americans andBritishers, and all western influencefrom the parts of East Asia undertheir control, and although they didnot wish it to appear on the surfacethat they were forcing us to leaveChina, various forms of pressure, restrictions, and threats made it perfectly clear that both for our ownsakes and for the best interests ofChinese friends and the work ofchurches, schools, and hospitals, wehad better return to our own countryfor the duration of the war."When the Conte Verde finallysailed from Shanghai on June 29 shecarried some 635 passengers, about350 of whom were missionaries. TheAsama Maru, which carried Americans from Japan, Manchukuo, andKorea and stopped at Hongkong andSaigon to pick up Americans fromthose ports and from Thailand andIndo-China, carried a somewhatlarger number. The two ships leftJapan and China at about the sametime and proceeded separately toSingapore, where they met and sailedtogether for the rest of the trip to EastAfrica. The ships were not convoyedand of course were not armed; theywere protected only by the good faithof the belligerent nations and by thespiritual forces which surrounded uson our long voyage."From Singapore we went souththrough the Sunda Straits separatingJava and Sumatra, then on across theIndian Ocean to Lourenco Marques,the capital city of Portuguese EastAfrica and one of the largest portsin Africa. As our two ships came upto the wharf we saw the Gripsholmalready alongside waiting for us. Shewas a Swedish ship, most artisticallymarked with the yellow and blue ofthe Swedish flag on her hull anddecks, and with her name and theword "Diplomats" in large black letters on either side and across herfore and aft bridges.

Hence, whenTitus returned to India in 1939, hewas fully equipped to fill the post oflecturer at the Tata School, wherewithin a short time through his industry, genuine interest in social welfare,sincerity of purpose, and infectiouszeal in attacking socio-economic problems, he won the admiration of students and faculty alike, and createdan abiding place for himself in theschool. . . . Always a friend of theneedy and a selfless champion of thedown-trodden, he died at a premature age, leaving behind him a vastcircle of relatives and friends."STANDARDBOILER and TANK CO.524 WEST 42nd STREETTelephone BOUIevard 5886LETTERS(Continued from inside front cover)repenting in sack-cloth and ashes eversince, but I didn't have my watchwith me, and had no idea of how thetime was going. Last Sunday I wasover at Green Hall to dinner withMiss Breckinridge, whom Papa willremember. I met lots of girls and hadlots of fun. Thursday night I attended the grand freshman event ofthe season, the reception given to thefreshmen by Dean Vincent, Dean ofthe Junior College, at his home onLexington about two blocks downfrom here. ["Here" was the home ofMr. and Mrs. Effinger, 5551 Lexington Avenue.] I didn't want, to go abit at first, but I'm glad I did, for Imet a great many people from myvarious classes, so that I have at leasta speaking acquaintance with them. Ialso met my Latin teacher, Mr. Laing,and I have quite a "crush" (but don'tbe alarmed). Mr. Vincent has alovely home, large rooms which werecompletely packed with nothing butfreshmen. Hung up in a very conspicuous place was a cap and gown ofbrilliant emerald green, labeled"Freshman Cap and Gown."Wouldn't that hurt your feelings? Ikept my back toward it all the evening.Did I tell you about going over toFoster Hall to a little afternoon teasome time ago? Well, I went and metsome more very nice girls, among thema friend of Edith Banning' s whomEdith had told about me, and tried toarrange for me to meet, but we hadmissed each other until we met thatafternoon. I told you, didn't I, aboutmy writing a note1 to Edith Banning?I hardly expected that she was intown, but she was, and came rightover to see me. She is living just fiveblocks over on Washington Avenue.Isn't that scrumptious? Several girlshave called on me, especially MissHobbs and Miss Donnan, both Fostergirls, and I am getting quite wellacquainted generally.Now I must tell you about Mr. Mc-Intire's church, down on the corner,which Papa and I hunted up andwhich the janitor showed us over. Itis a dear little church, the singingis good, and the hymns, psalter, collects, epistles, and gospels, the samefamiliar things. But the reverend rector!!! Words fail me. He preachesthe worst sermons I ever heard in mylife, and that is saying a good deal.They are not merely poor sermons,but he preaches them in the most affected, third-rate elocutionist mannerI ever heard. I don't see how people can listen to him, but they do, in raptattention. The first Sunday I heardhim, I was too thunder-struck tolaugh, but the next Sunday evening Ilonged to be able to get under theseat. This is an example of his sermon. I can't begin to imitate histragic gestures and deep breathings(as if he were in mortal agony). Histext was "The Beginning and theEnd." He repeated this three times,working up to a grand climax on thethird repitition [sic]. Then he wenton to say, "We all wonder, when welook upon the mighty ocean, what itis, where it comes from." Then hepranced across the chancel, cameback, and repeated in thrilling accents, with eyes upraised to Heavenand hands clasped on his bosom,"What it is, where it comes from. Weall know that it comes from the greatSouth Sea." (I didn't, but of courseit must, if he said so.) ''The GreatSouth Sea. — It is caused . by thegentle moon." Then he turned cleararound to the altar, and coming backto the lectern repeated as above, "Thegentle moon!" Now that is t|onestlywhat the whole sermon was like.Nothing but repitition [sic] and elocution, seraphic smiles thrown in. Doyou wonder that I wanted to laugh?I never thought that anything, couldspoil the service for me, but he did.This morning I went to hear Mr.Dewhurst, at the Congregationalchurch, and he preached a sermonthat was a sermon. It is very clearthat when I want to hear a sermon Ishall have to go to a "MeetingHouse." I was surprised, though, inthe Congregational church, at thesimilarity to our service, in a greatmany particulars. I haven't writtena thing about my studies but they areall there, only on Sunday I don't liketo think of them, you see, especiallyas my theme for Monday isn't writtenyet. Well I must stop for this.[The last page is lacking.]AliceI am not at all sure that anythingregarding me would be of interest,although I was a member of the University for about two years, fromJanuary 1901 to October 1902, aslisted in the Register for those twoyears.On account of coming to Chicagofrom the same school, Albion, as Newman Miller, the director of the University Press, and having been editorfor a year of the Albion Recorder andassistant editor of the Sigma ChiQuarterly, I was given a chance atsoliciting advertising and some editorial work on the second catalog of the Press; and as superintendent ofpublications supervised also the starting of the official documents by thegroup of girls who were sometimes alittle too noisy to suit John Coulterand Chamberlain in the Botany Building. Oskar Bolza, however, wasamong those who seemed to preferimpressive obscurities to simple andclear expressions in the announcements, but 'twas a lot of fun also tolive as I did in North Hall wherethere was plenty of sand with fleetcockroaches, seeming to give the simplicity of Oxford and Cambridge University life in modern times.Answering President Harper'sdoubts, due to my youthful appearance, Miller had assured Dr. Harperthat I had won the Western Intercollegiate tennis championship forAlbion (as William Scott Bond wouldremember) and so convincing advertisers of the merits of advertisingspace in the ten journals ought notto be beyond me.As a young national officer ofSigma Chi, I had dinner regularly atthe Sig House on Washington andKimbark, and had a right good time.But I went to Harvard for a degree,"Oec Pol Excellentem" in 1904, leaving many happy memories of Chicago.(Your Dr. Rollo Lyman was a roommate of mine at Cambridge.)Our greatest wish and prayer, however, at present would be to locatemy missing son, who has been missingsince the Battle of Java.Fred A.
