Not crash trouble, for in thecases we're talking about the radiowas in the plane and the pilot pulledout of the dive.But sometimesvoice. For thecold to warmer air produced condensation of moisture — like the fog thatcollects on your glasses when you comeindoors on a winter's day. A film ofmoisture formed on the radio's insulators; the film let the electricityleak away; the radio quit dead! Andthat was bad — since a modern fightingplane depends almost as much on itsradio as it' does on its wings.But not so long ago General Electricscientists found a way around this difficulty. For if a porcelain insulator isexposed, for just a few seconds, to the vapor of a composition called G-EDri-film — then the whole nature ofthe insulator's surface is changed.It looks just the same, but moisturedoesn't gather any longer in a conducting film. Instead, it collects in isolateddroplets that don't bother the radioa bit. The set keeps right on talking.Today the voices of most militaryradios are being safeguarded by treating their insulators with G-E Dri-film.And the research that cures a radio'slaryngitis is the same kind that haslicked the problems of the turbo-supercharger, and has packed the drivingpower of a destroyer into turbines notmuch bigger than a couple of trunks.It's the kind of research we're counting on, tomorrow, to turn the discoveries of wartime into peacetimeproducts we can all use.

Though brilliant military operations may benecessary to success, they by no means guarantee it. Itwould be hard to say who won most of the major warsthat have afflicted the world in the last hundred and fiftyyears. It would be as hard to say who is winning this one.In order to fight a successful war, you have to knowwhat kind of peace you want, and you have to wage thekind of war that is likely to give you that kind of peace.As far as appears on the surface, the American peoplesimply want peace, which they think of as the absenceof disturbance. Fascists are disturbers. If we can getrid of them, the chances of quiet will be improved.The notion that you go to war to put a period to theambitions of disturbers has been popular for many years.Napoleon and the Kaiser were discussed in the sameterms as the Fascists today. It may be that one reasonwhy we have the most vicious of all disturbers in ourown day is that previous generations thought of nothingbut getting rid of disturbers in theirs. If we think ofnothing but getting rid of disturbers now, future generations will not thank us for the tremendous effort we aremaking in their behalf. We shall destroy Hitler; we mayset the stage for one far worse than he. And yet whenanybody suggests that we ought to try to figure out thekind of peace we want, the answer is, "Let us get onwith the war." The reply might be, "Get on where?"We must fight for something and we must know whatit is. We may here disregard the Four Freedoms and theAtlantic Charter. Their inadequacy is revealed by thefact that nobody thought of mentioning them to Italy.No, the word to Italy was unconditional surrender, themost direct expression of naked power.We have a mystical notion that all the issues that 9 By ROBERT M. HUTCHINSperplex us are going to be settled by improvements intransportation. They will give us one world. A colleagueof mine has asked, one world, but whose? We may alsoinquire, one world, but how long? And one world, butwhat kind? One world which brings in closer contactthe sparks of greed and ambition is sure to be in constantexplosion. One world under one tyrant, or one association of tyrants, would be worse than many. In manyworlds there is at least the chance of escape from one tothe other.But let us suppose that by one world we mean onegood world. Will we stop to ask what one good worldinvolves? It involves, unless we propose to kill them all,the Germans and Japanese. If we are to fight a war forone good world which will include the Germans andJapanese, we ought to conduct the war in such a waythat their incorporation in one world will be as painlessand complete as possible. If this is what we are aimingat, the words unconditional surrender, as the sole, exclusive, and final offer to the people of Germany and Japan,seem an unpromising beginning. Mr. Churchill's talk ofsearing and scarring Italy did not automatically lead tothe conclusion that the United Nations are dedicated tothe brotherhood of man. The bombing of Hamburg mayhasten unconditional surrender, but it is likely to haveother consequences unfavorable to the formation andduration of one good world. And the present excitementabout so-called war criminals has melancholy connotations for those who remember Lloyd George's disingenuous slogan, "Hang the Kaiser."In the last war we said we were fighting against badgovernments, not against the peoples who happened tobe suffering under them. We have made no such distinction in this war. The Russians have; we have not.Yet the distinction is not only fundamental to one goodworld. It is simply common sense. Governments pass;peoples remain. If you say that the peoples of the Axismust be incorrigibly bad because their governments desireworld domination, I answer, first, that if we can associateonly with peoples who have never had governmentsdesiring world domination, our contacts with Europe will4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEbe limited to the Swiss; and second, that we may wellrecall in this crisis what Edmund Burke said of us inanother: "I do not know the method of drawing up anindictment against a whole people."One good world involves tremendous sacrifices. Mr.Churchill says to his people, "We will keep what wehave." Queen Wilhelmina says to hers, "Our Empireafter the war will be greater than ever." These statements are appropriate to belligerents fighting to keep whatthey have or regain what they have lost. They are hardlyharbingers of one good world, unless we assume that thestatus quo ante bellum portrays the ideal toward whichwe should strive.One good world will demand the sacrifice of thepolitical independence of every sovereign state. A worldat peace must be politically one. A world that is politically one may not be at peace, for it may be afflicted withcivil war. But if it is not politically one it cannot be atpeace. Sovereign nations must have disputes; disputesamong sovereign nations must be settled by war. If theyare settled any other way, the nations are not sovereign.It is possible for victorious nations to get together tohold down the conquered by force. This has always beentried and has always failed. It has, at any rate, nothingto do with one good world. A very bad world may beobtained in the same way. It may be supposed . that aninternational police force has some connection with onegood world. It has none in the absence of world law andworld government. In the absence of world law andworld government, the armed forces of the conquerorsassert their right to maintain an order acceptable to theconquerors, and that right is based on power and poweralone. Conquerors asserting a right based on power aloneare no more entitled to the name of police than Himmler'smen in Czechoslovakia.Every American schoolboy knows why the Articles ofConfederation did not work. It may be said that eventhe Constitution of 1789 did not work, because a greatand bloody war was necessary to establish that this wasone nation and not a collection of independent states.Union now, regional confederations, or a world confederation cannot work any more than the Articles of Confederation did, and their sole usefulness would be that ofthe Articles of Confederation, namely, to demonstrate tothe feeblest intelligence the necessity of a more perfectunion. The American states were fairly homogeneousand very remote. Both their enemies and friends weretoo preoccupied to bother them. They had the safetyvalve of a new country and the western lands. Morethan all, they had completed a successful war against acommon enemy, not against one another. Everythingwas on their side except one thing, and that was the formof political organization they had selected. No organization which contemplates the continued existence of independent sovereignties can produce a lasting peace, and toassume that it can is to deceive ourselves and suffer adisillusionment proportionate to our hopes. In one good world every man is our neighbor, becauseevery man is our fellow- citizen. The commands of thepolitical community supplement the demands of charity.One good world is a world of free trade and free immigration. The goods and the people of China, India, andJapan must have the same right to enter this country asthe goods and people of Illinois have to travel through it.A short time ago the Council of the American Federationof Labor, in response to the suggestion that China wasour ally, voted to reaffirm its support of the ChineseExclusion Act. Mr. William Green took the occasion toannounce that "A Chinaman is still a Chinaman." Ifthis is so, the one good world at which Mr. Green doubtless aims is still far off.Our traditional attitude toward the rest of the worldhas been expressed in the old question, "Should foreigners be abolished, or should we save some to sell thingsto?" We have been dedicated to a policy of high tariffsand no immigration. Fifteen years ago we regardednational relief of the unemployed as revolutionary socialism. Our system of social security is only eight years old.We are not yet ready to give national aid to the education of underprivileged American children. And yet, inone good world, we should be called on to support, toeducate, to buy from, and to receive as fellow-citizensmen of every race, creed, and color, at every economiclevel, and at every stage of ignorance or enlightenment.One good world requires more than the sacrifice ofancient prejudices. It requires the formulation and adoption of common principles and common ideals. It requiresthat this be done on a world wide basis. A world organization cannot be held together simply by fear. Nottransportation but communication lies at the foundationof any durable community. Transportation hastens consolidation; there is no doubt about that. In the lastcentury it has hastened consolidation of the most unstableand disagreeable kind, consolidation by conquest. Onegood world presupposes that the moral, intellectual, andspiritual foundations of the community have been laid.Otherwise the improvement of transportation must simplymean more frequent and terrible wars leading to thedespotism of that power which discovers how best toapply the latest inventions in transportation to thedestruction of its neighbors. In the absence of generalagreement on the purpose of the state and the terrestrialend of man the world must be literally at cross purposes.I do not want to exaggerate the role of common principles in producing a durable community. We all knowthat there is an interaction between institutions and attitudes. This is what the Greeks meant by saying that thelaw is an educational force and that the city educates theman. The Constitution of the United States has educatedthe people of this country to believe in and support theConstitution of the United States. But the Declarationof Independence and the Constitution itself show thatcommon ideals animated our forefathers and made itpossible for them to bring E Pluribus Unum. The differ-THE UNIVERSITY OF. CHICAGO MAGAZINE 5ent fate of the French Revolution is to be explained inpart by the drastic divisions which separated the ranks ofthe people in France who were united only in a desireto throw off absolute rule, and who, when it was thrown0ff could be brought together again only by the despotism of Napoleon.The ultimate goal is world democracy, for only democracy recognizes the humanity of man, his destiny on earth,and the state as the servant of that destiny. The principle is that all men are equal before the law, and thatall men, because they are men, have the right to participate in selecting their governors and in framing the lawsunder which they and their governors shall live. Anylimitations on this principle must be temporary, and theymust be uniform. If, for example, it is felt that nobodyshould vote for a representative in the Parliament of theWorld unless he can read and write, then free schoolsmust be established in every part of the world and theilliterate in Alabama must suffer the same disqualificationas the illiterate in the Congo. If you ask why I insistthat any durable world society must be a democraticsociety, I reply that a durable world society must be ajust society; for people will fight until they get theirrights. Only a democratic society is a just society, foronly a democratic society acknowledges those rights whichhuman nature carries with it.It is this view of a democratic world community, andnot my professional bias, which makes me attach overwhelming importance to education. Education is thechief means by which the community seeks to work outand clarify its principles and make them common to itsmembers. If every person in the world is to be free, thenhe must be educated for freedom. The virtue and intelligence of every man must be so trained that he is preparedto rule and be ruled in turn for the good life of the wholecommunity.The mere mention of these as the aims of educationshows not merely what great financial sacrifices but alsowhat enormous intellectual and moral effort they willdemand. In our own democratic country these are notthe aims of education. In three words, the aims ofAmerican education are health, wealth, and recreation.We may admit the importance of all three and still assertthat the American educational system is not educatingour own citizens for freedom and is not prepared to playa leading part, as Mr. Henry Wallace has proposed, inthe reeducation of the Germans and the Japanese. TheGermans and the Japanese already have educational systems adequately directed to health, wealth, and recreation.One may be permitted to doubt whether America is inany sense prepared for world democracy. Though weare the most democratic of nations, we have yet to getrid of certain beams in our own eyes that must distort our view of democracy on a world scale. The divisionamong us between those who work and do not own andthose who own and do not work; the poll tax; racialdiscrimination; government by pressure groups ratherthan the rule of all for the good of all — these things mustgo far to thwart any commitment on our part to a worldsociety in which they must disappear, a society whichcannot emerge in even embryonic form without our aid.These things also militate against the most effectiveuse of America's greatest power, the power of example.Other nations cannot be forced to be democratic, muchless to remain peaceful members of a democratic worldsociety. They must be persuaded. Surely the mostpersuasive argument, the argument which proves thatdemocracy is not an unattainable or undesirable ideal, isthe practice of democracy in one great country and thejustice, the unity, the peace, and the happiness which itbrings with it. This involves a series of very painfuloperations, the removal of the beams from our own eye.If we must give up our political independence, if wemust suffer a threat to our national well-being, and if wemust alter our habits of thought and action to obtain onegood world, can its early arrival be expected? Certainlynot. We are not prepared for these sacrifices. But wemay as well face the issue. If we mean to have onegood world, we must make these sacrifices. If we donot mean to make these sacrifices, then let's stop talkingabout one good world. Let us look forward to centuriesmore of carnage, each made more terrible than the lastby the greater and greater power which technology willplace in the hands of him who is ready to grasp andto wield it. For even if we and our allies and ourenemies were all committed to a peaceful, unified, democratic organization of the world, even if we had the idealsand institutions calculated to create and sustain it, thoseinstitutions would have to pass through many long, distressing years before our dreams could become reality.The reformation of the world's political system and therenovation of its moral, intellectual, and spiritual atmosphere cannot be accomplished in two or three monthsaround a peace table or two or three years in a palaceat Geneva. We can expect no miracles. But we candecide what we want. We can fight the war in termsof that decision. We can make a peace that takes ussome short distance along the path to permanent peace.We can refuse to join in the enforcement of any peacethat is unjust, undemocratic, or unlikely to lead us towardour ultimate goal. And above all, we can prepareourselves. If we can become convinced and comprehending citizens of a country that understands and practices democracy it may be — who knows? — that our children's children, or perhaps their children's children, willbe loyal Americans and at the same time citizens of onegood world.GARDEN IN THE DUNES:A STUDY IN UBIQUITY• By FREDERICK S. BREEDA dynamic blondeinspired thegardenTHE University of Chicago is inescapable. There'sreally no way of avoiding it, even if one would.An amiable professor of geography in the institution, who will be otherwise nameless but still quiterecognizable, found this out when he shipped himself toan Indiana state park 'way down upon the Ohio Riverfor a vacation respite. He would be free of everythingthat savored of the ruinous routine on the Quadrangles.But he failed in his mission completely, for as he enteredthe main lodge of the river resort, there in the lobbyforegathered were colleagues aplenty, aided and abettedby sundry members of the University Settlement Leagueand the student body of the U. High School. In desperation he threw up his hands and exclaimed, in terms toovirile for exact quotation in these polite pages, "Dash it!Dash it! Just the people I've been trying to get awayfrom."I bury my nose in a treatise on The Wonders of theDunes, and soon pick up the trail of the inevitable Chicago professor. The text runs like this:Just northwest of the station [mine], at thefoot of the dunes ... is the Cowles TamarackSwamp . . . named after the eminent botanistand leading authority on the plants of the dunes,Dr. Henry C. Cowles, of the University of Chicago, who has done so much to make it famous.This swamp has a wild creepy luxuriance that remindsone no little of the Florida Everglades. Reports ofdiamond rattlers found now and again on its fringes havefortunately discouraged public invasion of its tangledgrowth. Besides the tamarack and other magnificenttrees which it contains, there are great white birches thatlook as if they had been filched from the forests ofnorthern Wisconsin. Of one such birch I have a souvenirin the form of a post, a section cut from a storm-felledspecimen, with a name board tacked across the top. Thepost is associated with memories of Professor Cowles ashe clung tenaciously to his work in his last days of declining health, making his faltering way back and forth alongFifty-seventh Street.And the sign? You guessed it. It comes from thewoodshop of a Midway professor, one who sketches aradio circuit or reproduces a piece of colonial furniture with equal dash and precision, while the doctors atBillings keep the general nervous tension from damaginga remonstrative and somewhat rebellious department ofthe interior.Drop us out of the skies anywhere — on Samarkand orShangri-la, or far-away Yakutsk with Wendell Double-LWillkie — give us a minute to assemble ourselves, a fe^seconds to adjust binoculars, and we'd expect to sighta familiar object.It is easy to go adolescent in one's enthusiasm for thedunes, and begin lisping in numbers, for the numberscome. Youth is thus renewed in a kind of second childhood for one whose emotions, burning through the years,are on their way to ashes. The old fire flares up againlike fitful sparks that glow in dying embers. Within,one feels a stir which Education's Prescott calls a mobili.zation of the organism for action. When in this conditionthe victim may be seen going about mumbling to himselfof silvery serenades of song; of mounting spray onstorm-tossed waves; of graceful grasses, bending in thebreeze, writing their delicate traceries in the sand. Hisorganism is mobilizing for action, all right. He's feelinga verse coming on.Most of that which passes for poetry should not beallowed to escape the confines of the purely private andpersonal. Poetic ecstasy is common enough, mastery ofa medium is rare, and what is the first without thesecond? And if there is form without content, poetry isnot a social enterprise, for it belongs to the cult of theunintelligible. It has ecstasy without meaning, feelingwithout a communicable idea. It traffics in emotion,when words were built for the intellect.In any event, the poetic enchantment of the dunes willbe stricken from the agenda of this rambling commentaryand yield to a theme as prosaic as economics and aspatriotic as the "Star Spangled Banner": the communitygarden.The garden idea must have originated in the localRed Cross, for much besides war-service items originatesthere. In no time at all the project was promoted totown-meeting proportions, and citizens of much pro-fessional competence and much agricultural innocencegathered about a dynamic blonde to discuss ways andmeans. The word "dynamic" is accurately descriptiveas far as it goes, but it is not comprehensive enough toexplain the full attendance of the professionally competent. A Harvard professor, groping for an objectivefoundation for a theory of value, says, "That is attractivewhich attracts."6THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 7The garden plot was duly selected. The ground wasnlovved and harrowed. The soil was analyzed. Fertilizercontaining nitrogen, phosphate, and potash in properv-v-z proportions was cast about like bread upon thewaters and with the same general intent. Individualsections were laid out (an ominous phrase, in view ofthe outcome), posts were cut, and wire purchased fora fence to discourage those wild creatures that believein a share-the-crop economy.When the gardeners appeared on the lot, how vastlyvaried their talents! Some were obviously of the promotional type. Their zest perceptibly cooled as the projectperceptibly advanced. Then there were those of thenutritional type. Their persistence in the face of discouragement stemmed from the fact that they dearly lovetheir vegetables. Third was the notional type. Theylabored at irregular intervals, even though the weeds andinsects took vacations sparingly. Also, one found theinformational type. They always confided plenty ofthings one had read oneself in Nissley's Pocket Book ofVegetable Gardening. The conversational type must beadded to the list, for the garden became a second clearinghouse for news and views. Finally, for want of a betterterm, let us refer to the last as the traditional type.Member of the University group, she added a touch ofpeasant France ensconced in a wooden shoe.She clumped aboutIn the clods of clay,Clad in her classic sabots.(Clad in her classic sabots?Shod in her classic sabots?I vote for "clad"When it should be "shod,"I vote for sound,Not sense, by George,For I love alliteration,Yes, love alliteration.)The wife of the writer belongs to the promotional typeof gardener, against which human inertia is no protectionat all. Accordingly, we appeared at the garden ready forwork as usual, and were immediately assigned to unskilledlabor by the Treasurer of an educational institution whoserepresentatives are so ubiquitous, it almost seems ridiculous, if not a bit iniquitous. But let us not tarry to protestagainst the inevitable. The Treasurer knows his bondsand taxes. He also knows his trees and axes. With suchtalent the fence was readied for the garden and thegarden for the seed.At this juncture a dramatic script would naturally callfor soft summer sun and gentle rains, for a stir of mightm every clod that climbs to a soul in corn and beans.But that's only the way of the drama; the last curtainmust fall on man triumphant, though teeming millionsend their wretched lives in tragedy. The audience paysto be entertained, not to be informed. Even seekers aftertruth are partial to the easiest way. Wishful thinkers fatten on a philosophy that flatters human hopes andflattens human obstacles. They thrill at the thought thatman is the measure of all things, the creative arbiter ofhis destiny. The idea that man proposes but God disposes, or nature disposes, is to them an abhorrent doctrine, a confession of the servitude of man and thetyranny of things.Be that as it may, not a single vegetable was garneredfrom that lovely garden spot. For the rains came. Theycame and beat upon that garden. They kept coming andflooded that garden. They came day after day andfinally submerged it. The gardeners waited till the rainsabated, but their garden never came back to them. Ithad been bottom land from the start. It became thebottom of a lake, and the lake an abiding feature of thelandscape.Now for the sequel to the story, an epilogue if you like,that is as exciting as a stroke of virtue or a goldenwedding anniversary. The gardeners moved to a fairerfield and began all over again. And there came forth,in the fullness of time, ears of golden bantam corn, sweetand succulent; carrots bulging with the kind of rich delicious goodness possessed by so many products advertisedover the radio; and pods of beans that hung in clusterswaiting to be harvested.The secret of producing such garden crops will beconfided to anyone, on the least provocation, by theChairman of the Board of Trustees. Indeed, withoutfinancial inducement or other valuable considerations, Iam glad to testify that when my precious plantlets seemedon the verge of anemic collapse, Swift's Pulverized SheepManure revived them promptly, bringing new color totheir pallid leaves, and, eventually, a handsome harvestfor Victory. The Chairman is a factor to be reckonedwith the nation over in this — uh — stable business. Whatmore appropriate, now, than to sign off with his favoriteparting salutation: Mizpah?. . graceful grasses bending in the breeze D. P. Barnard8 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEHIGHER AND HIGHER TO QUITOThe following letter to his family was written fromEcuador by Lieutenant William E. Webbe, '39, six monthsbefore his death last June. He is listed in Chicago'ssecond honor roll on page 16 of this issue.— EditorIF YOU have read The Donkey Inside, don't take ittoo seriously. It was written to be funny and to sell,not to describe Ecuador. As a matter of fact, Ifound the pictures I had gotten from my geographywere all off, too. To me Ecuador now seems a land ofclear, cool air, bright sunshine, and gigantic heightsand depths. The air in the outer Andean Valley has thetang of the first football Saturday in October, and youhave to breathe a lot to get very much, but you arequite willing, as it is worth it. The colors are bright,the clouds pure white, the sky a perfect blue, soft andclear, and the valley mainly a rich green, in places abright sandy color, and the horizon is a jagged one ofblack and brown mountains, often capped with white.There is something thrilling about the whole of thecentral area. You drive along the valley floor and lookto either side at the giant mountains and snow cappedvolcanoes, some almost perfect cones. They rise highabove you and you think, "How huge!" Then you stopto think that you are looking up from a height of about9,000 feet to these peaks that rise 8,000 to 10,000 feetabove you. Quito is at 9,300 feet and Cotopaxi, a volcano, is close to 20,000 feet. But that is only the beginning; you begin to realize that in a few short hours youcan leave the smooth Americanized section of Quitoand find yourself at the end of civilization, where youhave to start out on foot with pack mules and/or nativesinto the little known province of Oriente, the backlandof the Amazon basin, tucked in behind the Andes. It isa land of tropical jungles, hopes for rubber, and tales ofshrunken heads (the Jevaro Indians).The Indians are miserable, filthy, and flea-bitten, butthey are healthier than these poor weazened things onthe desert coast. They have more food, they have water,they have cattle, sheep, and crops, and 90 per cent ofthem have red ponchos. The only exceptions to the filthamong these people are those around Ortovalo, butwe did not get there.Our trip was one of the most interesting, breath-taking,and pleasant things I've ever done — the Alps, GlacierPark, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon are not excepted.Flays and I had planned to leave for Guyaquil on theSaturday afternoon autocarril, but on Friday night afriend of mine from Guyaquil stopped in at the club andtold us he'd be glad to take us up, leaving about thesame time. The trip started with a couple of bottles ofbeer apiece for lunch and ended with scrambled eggs andcoffee at the International Petroleum Company's staffhouse. We bathed in what was my first warm shower sinceJuly 5 and left the hotel at about 7:15 to stop in to seeWalter and do a few errands. Walter was serving acouple of Martinis to the naval attache from Quito andhis roomies, and they were planning a big get-togetherfor dinner with the whole American young crowd andthe consul-general and his wife. The party was to endat Guyaquil's only night spot. To make it short, we gotin at 3:15 after seeing one of the funniest fireworksexhibitions on record, only to find that our train left at6:45 A. M. instead of 9:00.With a great shriek of a siren the directo autocarrilstarted out for Quito, full of Americans, better classEcuadorians, and four Germans. The trip is scheduledfor ten hours. It is the best way to Quito other thanPanagra, as the little train takes eighteen hours threedays a week and as a mixto takes a day and a half theother three. The directo is on Sundays only.For about two hours we went through banana andsugar lands, tropical foliage, and cold fog. Interesting,but not a thrill. We bought a few bananas for breakfastand shivered and looked for orchids in the trees. Gradually we came up closer to the clouds and the land began to roll a bit more. Then the hills got higher and wewent into the low misty clouds. We rode through thefog for about half an hour, eating some sandwichesgiven us by a fellow American who must have thoughtwe were starved from the way we ate our breakfast ofbananas without cream. Toward the end of the fog wegot glimpses of the sun above and a few mountains closebehind us. We were both thrilled.Just a few minutes before we came to a little town,whose name I will some day find on a map, we clearedthe fog and came out into the bright sunshine. Alongside of us there were trees on the hillsides; we wereprobably 3,000 feet up, but as we got used to the sunThe "Devil's Nose"THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 9we could look up the mountains on both sides and overthem. What we thought were the peaks were only thebeginnings, up to the first hump. Above these toweredtwo layers more of peaks, each reaching far above theprevious ones. We had to look up at an angle of over45 degrees on each side to see the top of the mountainsfour or five miles away. It was wonderful!Everything seemed enormous and especially so because the whole of each of the mountains was coveredwith great grassy slopes from base to peak and seemedto reach up almost beyond sight. There were no roughcliffs, only huge, bald, soft-looking giants.The land became drier as we went on and cactus beganto grow on the rather barren slopes which were nowmore rugged. From a little town about 3500 feet upwe went into a part of the railroad called "The Devil'sNose." Here the track climbs so fast and the mountainside is so sheer that you go through a short series ofbacking up and going forward in order to climb 350feet in no time at all. Then you start getting into theuplands, where the Indians wear red blankets andthe farms are green from irrigation and you can see themhung way up on the mountainsides, looking as if theyshould be tacked to the mountain to keep from slippingoff. There is a small, relatively broad area throughwhich a river runs and all is very green for a few hundred yards on either side — and the houses are white.Finally you get up to the pass at something like 8,500feet and feel the cold wind and watch it blow the dustlike sand around into little dunes. You can now lookacross the valley, not over thirty or forty miles wide, andsee the hills all loom up with patchwork farms, justlike an old quilt. The land here is still pretty barrenand there are only a few head of cattle and sheep tendedby little red specks which are the Indians.In a couple of hours we reached Riobamba, wherethey make a thousand and one little things for sale,none of which are too good. Prices are up for thegringos here, too. The town is built around a sort ofoasis, and although the soil is dry and sandy, they havegroves of eucalyptus trees which are planted in neatrows. They are for flooring and firewood.I almost forgot to tell of the way the train ran outof Riobamba toward Chimborazo across the flatland.From something like 9,000 feet you look off at Chimborazo, 21,000 feet high and covered with an ice cap forthe last three or four thousand feet. The clouds seemto pile up to the west of it and sneak around to covertoo much, but now and then there is a break and youcan see the peak. It is immense even from twenty-fivemiles away.It is a couple of hours more to Ambato where thesoil and people are much the same. The town, however,appears to be on the side of a mountain. It isn't, butthere is a great cut in the valley where a river runsthrough and Ambato is at the height of the valley butalongside this cut. Ambato seems to have more flowers.It is lovely and cool. The native market place at RiobambaFrom Ambato to Quito is about four hours. We weretired, cold (both of us had our top coats on), and itstarted to get dark. The volcanoes' snow peaks werelargely hidden by the clouds and the autocarril's bouncing began to wear.However, the land became greener and we got a joltof cold going over the 10,000 foot "params" betweenCotopaxi and Ilesias. The mountain slopes (cerritos — little hills — they call them) were still patched with farmswhich now seemed more productive, and an occasionalvolcano appeared high over the rest. The ranges ofmountains on each side run between 13,800 and 14,500feet deep, maybe more, with rugged walls and now andthen a little space at the bottom to grow something.We got into Quito about seven o'clock and were morethan ready to get onto solid ground. The station wasfull of people meeting friends (although I cannot seehow the twenty-eight people on the bus could be metby so many), and the taxi drivers with their assistantsall trying to grab your baggage and bring you to theirrespective cabs. I've never figured out why it takes twoto drive a taxi, but it certainly does there.After a hot bath and dinner at the hotel we whippedover to the Metropolitanos, the meeting place of Quito,to see what was up. We had no sooner got in than weran into an American who said he wanted to buy acouple of sailors a drink. He was a peach!— from NewYork, here to go to the Orient to look for some mineralsand spending his time enjoying himself. With him wasan Englishman, Captain Locke, by name, who has beenaround Ecuador so long that he is famous. We hungaround listening to tales of Ecuador until they turnedout the lights at ten o'clock and we "hit the hay" torecuperate while they went to the Ali Baba for somelife. The trip up three flights of stairs at that altitudefloored me and I scarcely remember getting to bed.NEWS OF THE QUADRANGLESAT NO time in its history has the University metas many demands as it is doing now, with theautumn quarter well under way. It has something like 170 war contracts, some small, some large;some obvious, and some unknown. It is handling aservice training program for over 2,000 military students,and yet it is still engaged in education for peace as wellas for war. It had a paid registration at the end of thesecond week of 4,699 civilian students, a decline of 15.8per cent from last autumn, and a very large decreasefrom a normal average of about 7,750 in the immediateyears before the war, but still a surprisingly large number.It is going ahead with new educational ideas and programs, so that the coming of peace will not mean thatwar time stopped all progress. The strain of all this onthe facilities and on the staff, particularly . the faculty, issomething tremendous. But the cheerful fact is that theUniversity, which was a great institution in peace time,is just as great an institution in time of crisis. It hashad to abandon much of its research and training, butfundamentally it still is a true university. Its state todayjustifies the assertion frequently made by PresidentHutchins — which sometimes seemed tinged with mysticism — that the University would be understood and supported so long as it did what it regarded as the bestpossible educational job.Registration for the QuarterThe University's newest experiment in education, theCollege, has shown a healthy and significant increase inits 'first two years, which replace the junior and senioryears of high school. Registration in the first and secondyears has increased from 179 students last autumn to 276this quarter, a growth of 97, or 54 per cent. Moremeaningful than the growth is the fact that from a fewout-of-town students a year ago, 56, or practically one-fifth of those in the first two years, are from outside theChicago metropolitan area. They come from New York,New Jersey, Missouri, Colorado, California, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, Indiana, Virginia, Minnesota, Maryland, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Wisconsin,Nebraska, and the District of Columbia, as well as down-state Illinois. Fifty or so students are ordinarily aninsignificant number as University registration goes, butthese 56 mean much in demonstrating that the effort ofthe College to give meaning to liberal education by andfor itself is already getting a response from the country.Women outnumber men by 2,940 to 1,759 in the totalUniversity registration. Only in the first two years ofthe College where the students range upward from 14years, in the Division of the Physical Sciences, and in theFederated Theological Schools, are there more men than • WILLIAM V. MORGENSTERN, '20, J.D. 'Jwomen. The greatest losses of students, as compare!with 1942, are in the third and fourth years of th,College, which dropped from 1,485 to 1,037, 30.8 pC]cent, the loss being all men; and in the total of the divisions, where the loss is 30.8 per cent. Of the individuadivisions, the Biological Sciences lost 49.2 per cent; thiHumanities, 24.2 per cent; the Social Sciences, 24.4 pecent; and the Physical Sciences, 16.3 per cent. The over.all loss in the professional schools is 4.7 per cent. ThLaw School has 47 students; Graduate Library, whythis autumn added its new program for the bachelor1!degree in library science, has almost doubled, but stillhas only 52 students; Social Science Administration haj399 students (only 11 of them men) compared to 441last year; Business has dropped from 166 students to lOdthe sharpest loss of all the professional schools this quaiiter. There are only 33 civilians in the School of Medicine, the others now being Army students, but the totalof both groups is higher by ten than last year. Thenis no really comparable basis for Divinity, because of thnew Federated Theological Schools, but this new systenhas appreciably increased registration. Downtown University College has 105 more students than in 1942. Iia way, these comparisons tend to be misleading; the professional schools, for example, and to a lesser degreeSocial Sciences and Humanities, took their losses earlybeginning when Selective Service first went into effectThere also are some other activities not listed in thesiDean Davey approves the freshman program of JoannJWhitecotton, daughter of the superintendent of the University Clinics.10THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 11tatisticSj including some 400 students in three programsonsored under Engineering, Science, Management WarTraining auspices. The seventh course in war management is in progress at University College, under the direction of Willard J. Graham of the School of Business.Here men and women employed in war industries arelearning principles of management to speed up production. The training in mapping and in optical shop workalso continues this quarter. The University could givehn unlimited number of these ESMWT courses, but itkas been restricting itself to those which are most useful,knd f°r which it is best equipped. There are so manyRemands that the problem is one of determining which[s the most desirable and essential allocation of staff andfacilities.Adult EducationApart from this war training, the usual efforts in adulteducation are thriving on an expanded basis. One of the(nost interesting and unusual phases of this is the "Greatgooks" course, attended by some thirty leading businessand professional men of Chicago, and their wives, andleld downtown at the University Club. Presidentlutchins and Mr. Mortimer Adler have taught the greatjooks of western civilization for years to University stu-lents on the Quadrangles, and similar courses have beenregularly offered by University College, including downtown and campus evening classes this autumn. The pur-iuit of learning through study of the classics by some)f Chicago's most important citizens resulted from theirexposure to the enthusiasm of Wilbur Munnecke, vice-president of Marshall Field and Company, who is on loan;o the University as adviser on war contracts. The classrvill range from Homer and Aristotle through Jefferson,Freud, and Karl Marx, and their instructors and inquisi-prs will include President Stringfellow Barr and DeanScott Buchanan of St. John's College, Richard P. McKeon, Clarence H. Faust, Mr. Adler, and Presidenthutchins. Under the auspices of the Charles R. Walgreen Foundation, the School of Social Service Administration is conducting a series of free public lectures on[Social Service in Wartime"; and various members ofbe University faculty are giving a series of five lecturesm "American Citizenship" at Carl Schurz High School ashn of the OCD training program of block discussionpaders. Social Service Administration also is sponsoring, under its own auspices, another series, with suchRotable figures as Katherine Lenroot, Edith Abbott, andtther nationally known authorities, on administration of!elief in foreign countries and the impact of the war onAcial service. The Division of the Humanities is experimenting with two courses of ten lectures each for thegeneral public, but pitching the lectures at a scholarlykvel. One course is in "Semantics," and the other is[Conceptions of the Humanities Since the Renaissance."f it is found that the public can take its learning without dilution or talking down by the lecturer, furtherCurses will be given. In addition to all these, University College has four lecture series downtown at the Art Institute: "Famous Utopias," "American Traditions and aWorld at War," "A Philosophy of Social Relations," and"Asia's Future," and the Department of Art is offeringthrough University College three lecture conferences on"Twentieth Century Painting," "Chinese and WesternDrawing," and "Chinese Art." Any near-by alumnus whofinds this insufficient for his cultural needs is remindedthat he also has the privilege of taking his choice ofthree high-grade courses organized especially for him.Britannica Series of the Classics%. Another development related to the "Great Books" isthe announcement this month by Vice-President WilliamBenton, who is chairman of the board of EncyclopaediaBritannica, Inc., that the University, through its interestin the Britannica, will publish the great books of westerncivilization. The Britannica series will make available inone unit in good translations, the complete texts of theclassics, together with special explanatory and guidancematerial to assist the average reader to understand theideas and development of the civilization of his world.New translations will be provided in many instances.President Hutchins will be the editor of the series. Editing of the books and preparation of the additional material will require about three years, and all the volumeswill be published in a unit at the same time. Publicationof the classics by Encyclopaedia Britannica undoubtedlywill bring these works before an audience much largerthan any now acquainted with them, for the Britannicaorganization is the country's largest publishers of clothbound books and knows how to merchandise them.Mr. Benton himself has just returned from a flying visitto England, made as the representative of the Committeefor Economic Development, of which he is vice-chairman.He was invited to accompany Eric Johnston, presidentof the United States Chamber of Commerce, who wentto England as an official guest of the Board of Trade.Some of the observations and conclusions Mr. Bentonmade during his three weeks in England, during which hemet many of its leading figures, are reported in his articlein an October issue of Life,New Director of the PressThe University has been in the publishing businesson its own since 1892, when Dr. Harper established theUniversity of Chicago Press to engage in scholarly publication. The Press now is the largest and oldest noncommercial publishing house in the country. Last monthPresident Hutchins announced the appointment of a newdirector, Joseph A. Brandt, who will take charge the firstof the year. He is resigning as president of the University of Oklahoma to take the position here, although hehad achieved a leading position among the country's educators in his three years as Oklahoma's head.

A university's job is to learn —to learn about the causes of disease, aboutthe mysteries of the universe, about theeconomic and political actions of man insociety, about the arts and culture ofcivilization. A university is dedicated tofinding out the truth about a millionquestions yet unanswered in every possible field of learning. Because it is dedicated to truth, a university representseverything fascism hates. A university,therefore, is a symbol of freedom — a symbol of what this war is all about.Music: Up and Down.RETURNING to the air on September 23, theHuman Adventure began as a regular Thursdayevening feature of the coast-to-coast network ofthe Mutual Broadcasting Corporation. The program isbeing presented by the University of Chicago, in collaboration with Mutual, and is heard at 7:30 P. M., CentralWar Time, each week.The program is. a University of Chicago undertaking.Its subjects are those of current importance in the hallsof research in the great universities of the world; itsweekly presentations are based upon the suggestions ofmembers of the faculties of the University; it is writtenand prepared in the University's radio office; it is produced by the University's radio director, Sherman H.Dryer; and to serve as host on each broadcast of the series,the University presents Walter Yust, the distinguishededitor of the Encyclopaedia Britannica*The program, in presenting to the general public thestories of what is taking place within the halls of learning,is not a "lecture" type show. Every program will be different, and every program will emphasize interest, entertainment, and suspense — but never at the expense of theintegrity of the materials. Editor Yust of the Encyclopaedia Britannica (left) and Director Dryer of the University Radio Office check a scriptIn fact, the complete integrity of the materials is one,of the things which will make it an unusual progranToo often, in presenting this type of material dramaMically, there is a tendency to use "the dramatic license"'as an excuse to violate the facts of any scientific storyThis is not so in presenting the Human Adventure. Thelchallenge in the preparation of the script is always totake the facts as they are and to adapt them imaginatively into effective radio.The Human Adventure is thus distinctive in radio,!and in so adapting its presentation the program has noset pattern or model for any of its shows. Every show «different and is determined by the materials. An infinitevariety of techniques will be used and the listener will,therefore, each week be treated to an entirely new andsurprising presentation. For instance, the first show thisyear on "The Origin of the Earth" was treated as a greatpanorama, an unfolding of the long history of people'sideas on how the earth was formed. It started with thelegends of the ancient Orient and worked down throughthe latest results of the Chamberlin-Moulton planetessijmal theory. For the coming programs it is hoped to utilize such devices as the "Our Town" type of presentation,the musical comedy, the narrative poem, and so on, aJthe materials lend themselves.The radio, being a very fluid means of presentatioaoffers through the dramatic presentations of the work <*12THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 13scholars an opportunity to tell the University's story, notin pedagogical, classroom style, but in a fresh, imaginative way. For example, in explaining Newton's law ofgravitation, why not take a trip to the moon? In thestory of "The Origin of the Earth," the following sceneoccurred :Through filter: Any two particles of matter in the universeattract one another with a force which is directly proportionalto the product of their masses and inversely proportional to thesquare of the distance between them.Narrator: Thus, Newton's theory of —Boy: Excuse me, sir.Narrator: Eh? What's this?Boy: I don't understand what he said.Narrator: What who said?Boy: That man who sounded like a telephone.Narrator: Well, shall I have him read it again?Boy: No, sir. I still won't understand it. The words aretoo big. I like little words. Uni-ver-sal grav-i-tatter is too big.Narrator: Universal gravitation, young man. How wouldyou like to have Isaac Newton explain it to you himself?Boy: In little words?Narrator: In little words. Ready? Abacadabra. Hocuspocus. Sis boom rah!Music: Comic Bridge Transporting Newton. Boom Tag.Boy: Jeepers!Newton: Ah, there you are. The inquisitive tyke who disturbed my 216 years' sleep.Boy: Yes, sir.Newton: What is it you wish to ask me?Boy: Universal grav-i-tatter. I don't understand it.Newton: Really quite simple, my boy.Boy: Yes, sir.Newton: Now — how much do you weigh?Boy: Seventy-five pounds with these shoes on.Newton: Good. Now you — what's your name, by the way?Boy: Billy.Newton: All right, Master Billy. You are a body — a thing —that is, a particle of matter in the universe.Boy: Big words!Newton: And the world, the planet earth, is another particle.And both of you have a force of gravity. You each pull thingstoward you. I'll show you what that means. Stand over thereand jump up and down. Sound: Bio Jump.Newton: Fine, now how high did you jump?Boy: Pretty high, but barefoot I could jump higher. Theseare big shoes.Newton: Let us say you jumped about two feet high. Thegravity of the earth would not let you jump any higher. Theearth pulled you down.Boy: It did?Newton: That is right! But listen to this — you have a forceof gravity too, so you pulled the earth up!Boy: I did?Newton: Yes, indeed. Now Master Billy, come hold my handand let us visit the moon!Music: Transportation.Newton: (Full Echo) Well, here we are.Boy: (Full Echo) Is this the moon, really?Newton: Yes, it is.Boy: We sound funny.Newton: That's because the moon is a dead world,Boy: Well, what about grav-i-tatter, or whatever you call it?effects men monopolizing a quarter of the stage.Newton: Gravitation, you mean. Well, Master Billy, nowtry to jump up and down again.Music: Whee and Down.Boy: Goll-lee! I'm a Superman!Newton: You jumped almost a hundred feet high.Boy: I was scared, too.Newton: Do you know why you jumped so high?Boy: No, sir.Newton: Because on the moon you weigh only about twelvepounds.Boy: But I thought —Newton: The moon, Master Billy, is smaller than the earth.Therefore, it exerts less force of gravity on you. And so, ofcourse, you weigh less than on earth. Now let us return home.Music: Transportation.Newton: There, that was a grand journey, was it not?Boy: Oh, yes, sir! Can we go somewhere else?Newton: I am afraid we haven't time, Master Billy, but Ihope that now you understand the meaning of gravity — theattraction that holds the world in its place around the sun.The Human Adventure, which, many will remember,ran for thirty-four weeks on the Columbia BroadcastingCompany's network during the year 1939-1940, takes itstitle from a quotation from the famous archeologist andThe Human Adventure goes into production, sound14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEhistorian of the ancient world, James Henry Breasted.He described the "story of man's slow climb from thecave to the skyscraper" as a "human adventure," and thepurpose of the program is to relate milestones, large andsmall, along the long trail upward in human development.The dramatic series of the Human Adventure was conceived originally by Vice-President Benton when he cameto the University in 1937. In planning for the program hefelt that the radio offered great possibilities for advancingthe cause of learning through a dramatic medium, andconsidered it a University responsibility to create a radioprogram that could present in a dramatic and popularfashion the things that were happening in the world ofthe University. He also felt that means should be provided for the University — the community of men withinquiring minds, where the great scientific laboratoriesare at work, where men are learning to understand history, our social environment, and the meaning of eventsand forces which influence us — to tell its story.Each program as it is finally heard on the air eachThursday evening has had weeks of preparation and research. Suggestions for topics for the Human Adventureare received from members of the University of Chicagofaculty and others interested. After such suggestions havebeen carefully analyzed and considered, a selection ismade. Each selection is then put in the hands of a professional script writer, who works on the University ofChicago campus and spends at least three or four weekson each script. The writers begin by doing general reading on the subject. After they have some acquaintancewith the field, they consult appropriate members of thefaculty and hold numerous conferences with specialists inthe field. From the material thus gathered, the first draftof the script is written. Hereafter, it is revised manytimes before the final appearance on the air. Every wordin each script before it goes over the air is carefullychecked and approved in every detail by the appropriateUniversity faculty member. All the personnel and research facilities of the Encyclopaedia Britannica havebeen put at the disposal of the script workers. In thisway the Human Adventure ensures authenticity and sacrifices nothing to the facts.Music to underscore the dramatic narratives is presented by the thirty-piece WGN symphony orchestraunder the direction of Henry Weber. The musical scoresinclude special arrangements and compositions which arecarefully selected and arranged for each show in orderto provide the musical background appropriate to thewide variation in dramatic presentation employed by theHuman Adventure. All rehearsals and preparations foreach week's show, with the exception of the music, whichis selected a week in advance, are carried through on theday of the show. Six-and-one-half hours are spent beforeair time racing the clock to 7:30. The cast, which ismade up of well-known Chicago radio actors, is carefullychosen for each show on the basis of each actor's abilityto fill definite roles. Besides the Chicago cast, the Human Adventure hopes to draw upon stage and screen stars fo:guest performances The original Human Adventure series, for instance, welcomed to its cast such personalitieas Raymond Massey and Clifton Fadiman. Professionasound men and stage hands take care of all the technicamechanics. The program each week originates in th<studio of Mutual's Chicago station^ WGN.The present series of the Human Adventure will inelude, among its forthcoming shows, such subjects acosmic rays, child development, folk songs in symphonLthemes, photosynthesis, the meaning of Old Testamenstories, childbirth, American English, historical analyslof Columbus's voyages, the technique of sampling, ancbiographical sketches of famous people.NEWS OF THE QUADRANGLES{Continued from page 11)such a program well advanced at the University of Oklahoma, and other plans he instituted there are also established. As director of the Press, Mr. Brandt will functionas its publisher, combining the direction of the editorialand business branches. Mr. Rollin Hemens, who hasbeen associated with the Press for twenty years, has beenappointed assistant director. Mr. Brandt, married andthe father of two children, is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, and was a Rhodes scholar from thestate in 1921, taking the Bachelor of Arts degree fromLincoln College, Oxford University, in 1923= He subsequently took the M. A. and Bachelor of Literature degrees at Oxford, and in 1941 received an honorary LL. D.from Temple University. He began a newspaper careerwhile an undergraduate at the University of Oklahoma,and from 1925 to 1928 was city editor of the TulsaTribune. Among other editorial work, he has been editor of the Sooner Magazine and managing editor ofBooks Abroad. He also is the author of The New Spain,published in 1933. Mr. Brandt was the first director of theUniversity of Oklahoma Press, which, under his guidancefrom 1928 to 1938, achieved a national reputation as thepublisher of regional material of the southwest. One ofthe books the Oklahoma Press published under his administration, Wa-kon-tah, gained the unique distinctionof being the only publication of a university press to bethe choice of the Book-of-the-Month Club. In 1938 Mr.Brandt was appointed director of the Princeton UniversityPress, notably expanding its publication program duringhis three years there. He then returned to the Universityof Oklahoma, and was appointed its president in 1941.Federated Theological FacultyAn impressive service of inauguration and dedicationon October 25 in Rockefeller Memorial Chapel markedthe beginning of the actual work of the Federated Theological Faculty, which on July 1 brought the DivinitySchool, the Chicago Theological Seminary, MeadvilleTheological School, and Disciples Divinity House into acooperative program of theological education, whileTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 15Joseph A. Brandtmaintaining the independence of the individual schools.The Federated Theological Faculty is the largest Protestant seminary in the United States, both in size of facultyand of student body. Representing different denominations, the participating schools have pooled their faculties and established a common curriculum which consti tutes about two-thirds of the program for the Bachelor ofDivinity degree, with the remaining third devoted to thedenominational interests of each school. The Federation represents, as the first joint effort in theological education, one of the most significant steps taken in themovement toward Protestant unity. The University isthe logical place for such progress to be made, for underPresident Hutchins it has stressed the desirability of cooperation, rather than duplication, in all fields of education. The service was attended by delegates representing approximately 150 colleges, universities, religious organizations, and seminaries, but on suggestion of the Federation, the delegates selected were mostly Chicago arearesidents. Speakers at the service were the Reverend Dr.Douglas Horton of New York, minister of the GeneralCouncil of Congregational Christian Churches; the Reverend Dr Albert W. Palmer, president of the ChicagoTheological Seminary; and President Hutchins.Hospital Association AwardDr. Arthur C. Bachmeyer, Director of the UniversityClinics, and associate dean of the Division of the Biological Sciences, was given the American Hospital Association Award of Merit, in recognition of his service as"distinguished administrator and educator whose achievements have greatly advanced standards of treatment forpatients and educational opportunities of lasting benefitto his fellow citizens."THE GRAND OLD MANEleven years ago Amos Alonzo Stagg coached the lastof forty-one Chicago football teams. As a technician,for more than four decades, he hadrated among the top-notchers of thecountry, as an inspirer and leader ofyouth and an exemplar of characterhe stood unique. He was the GrandOld Man to Chicago students andalumni. To thousands he personifiedthe University.Seventy years of age, he wouldunder the retirement rules of the University become Professor Emeritus ofPhysical Culture and Athletics at theend of the school year. The Administration, loath to lose such a man, reflected the desires of the alumni whenit created for Mr. Stagg a new non-academic position, Chairman of theCommittee on Intercollegiate Athletics, with a salary which togetherwith his retirement allowance wouldequal that he had received as head ofhis department.But the Grand Old Man refused the appointment,though the friendships of years and the ties of a lifetime made such a decision a difficult one. He felt called tocontinue active participation in the field of his choice,though it necessitated leaving theUniversity where he had become aliving tradition.He chose to go West, to accept aposition at the College of the Pacific.For ten years he has coached theteams of that small California college.His record as football coach at Pacifichas been one of which any man mightwell be proud. But it is only in thishis eleventh season after emeritus-hoodthat the record of his team is so outstanding as to challenge the admiration of the sports-loving world. Withvictories over favored service teams,over U.C.L.A. and the University ofCalifornia, Pacific's only defeat, a 6-0affair, was received at the hands ofthat famous footballish institution,Southern California. At the age ofeighty-one Amos Alonzo Stagg hasbecome the Grand Old Man — not alone of Chicago —but of the nation.CHICAGO S HDLL DF HONORMajor John J.
