The address,coupled with the invitation, is a challenge whichshould be met.I think it most unfortunate and discouraging that acelebration of victory in Europe should be made the occasion for such a defeatist, apologetic pronouncement by thePresident of the University of Chicago.According to Mr. Hutchins, "We give thanks that wehave been delivered from the bloodiest war in history."There is no intimation that we are celebrating the winningof a righteous cause. On the contrary, we are told: "Wecome now to the real test of our professed ideals for thesake of which we claimed to enter the war."Plainly Mr. Hutchins has never been reconciled to ourjoining in the war against nations whose "professed" andpracticed ideals have been tyranny, brutality, and treachery. If it were pointed out that we were attacked byJapan and that Germany declared war, he would ofcourse make the stock response of their apologists thatour previous sympathy and aid to free peoples fightingagainst enslavement provoked the assault on us. Like allthese apologists he slurs the idealism and chivalry ofwhich America should be most proud.Then, in the name of these ideals he calls upon us toadd to the sacrifices of war the further sacrifice of "notour lives but our goods" to save our "fellow-men," andsneers at "indications" that "we shall be less willing tosacrifice our goods than we have been our lives, or atleast the lives of our soldiers and sailors."Those for whom Mr. Hutchins is particularly concernedas our "fellow-men" are conquered Germans (and laterJapanese) . He is not making a special plea for the millions who were enslaved and robbed and tortured byGermany. Probably he suspects that we may be willingto sacrifice some of our goods for those who fought andsuffered on our side. But he is afraid we may allowGermany, that starved all Europe, to be reduced "to asubsistence level," or even (horrible thought!) made a"pastoral country." We should, he saySj "think of thedreadful poverty which Germany must undergo." Personally I am more concerned with the dreadful povertythat the Germans inflicted on the rest of Europe. Toallow the Germans to suffer for some of that dreadfulpoverty would be nothing more than retributive justice.(I might add that my father was born in Germany andthat I was in friendly correspondence with a cousin, amedical officer in the Nazi army, before we entered thewar; so I should not be mistakenly accused of any racialbias.) • By DONALD R. RICHBERG, '01But, our educational leader tells us that educated persons should know "that war is brutalizing and that propaganda should be received with skepticism." In a word,don't be moved by stories of Nazi brutality and theirloathsome treatment of prisoners and conquered people.They were fighting a war and, although they chose thatway of advancing their fortunes, they should not be punished for it! When a highwayman shoots down and beatsup his defenseless victims you should realize that robberyis a brutal business and when the police capture him theyshould feed him chicken and asparagus and turn himloose with a new gun so that he can continue to makea good living.Mr. Hutchins sententiously observes: "We cannot support the thesis that because German leaders acted illegally,therefore they should be treated illegally. Two wrongsdo not make a right." Two poisonous thoughts arepacked in that sugar-coated platitude. One is thatenemies who violate every rule of honorable fightingshould not be punished. That is, enemies can kill ourbrothers under cover of a white flag, they can starve andtorture their prisoners while we tenderly care for ours;but it would be another "wrong" for us to punish thesecriminals when they are finally caught.The other poisonous thought is expanded later in Mr.Hutchins' defense of "the misbehavior of an individualman resulting from his miseducation, misdirection, orstress of circumstances." This is the worn-out lachrymosedefense of criminals which is regularly used to diverta righteous wrath and to blunt the sword of justice. Itis all the fault of society that Billy turned out to be adirty little crook, or it was the fault of his parents, orof somebody else who should suffer for Billy's misdeeds,while he should be gently and generously treated.To drive home this point Mr. Hutchins states categorically and quite inaccurately that "no men are beasts."A statement more worthy of an educator of high positionwould be that, biologically and psychologically, all menare beasts and that the progress of civilization dependson the gradual elimination of beastly qualities throughself-imposed and enforced restraints. An educator mightalso be expected to know that no community in all recorded history has ever managed to maintain the peace"I think that here is a major issue between Mr. Hutchinsand some of the alumni who will feel that his addressshould not be accepted as representative of opinion ofgraduates of the University. I hope it does, not representfaculty or student prevailing opinion. ... I feel verystrongly that something should' be done to counteract anyimpression that education at the University of Chicago isintended to develop men and women who think and talklike President Hutchins!"Donald R. RichbergWashington, D. C.3THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEand order essential to civilized living without enforcingrestraints upon vicious minorities that always violate therules and disregard social responsibilities. Even socialclubs of college graduates are compelled to restrain members who do not pay their bills and who pilfer booksfrom the library.This is no place to have an extended quarrel with Mr.Hutchins' assertion that, "The general maxim of theeducated person should be, 'Judge not that ye be notjudged.' " The absurdity of abandoning all exercises ofjudgment should be evident to any educated person. Themystic command quite plainly advises one simply not tojudge others except by standards he is willing to have applied to himself. (See Matthew 7:2.) Mr. Hutchinspleads for "justice"; and how can there be "justice" without judgment and condemnation of wrong?A person familiar with the entire Sermon on the Mountwould be inclined to refer Mr. Hutchins to a few observations which follow the one he quoted. These are: "Yeshall know them by their fruits. . . A good tree cannotbring forth evil fruit ; neither can a corrupt tree bringforth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth goodfruit is hewn down and cast into the fire."The gospel, as revised by Mr. Hutchins, appears to instruct us to save all the corrupt trees even if we destroythe good trees in the process. Or, does Mr. Hutchinswish us to assume that the German and Japanese fruitsare good and ours are evil? Really, a little pride andself-respect is not sinful. In fact we may suggest that apeople who regarded professional killers, robbers, andliars as their superiors, could not achieve a high degreeof civilization.Finally, Mr. Hutchins' left-handed advocacy of a worldorganization gives no aid to the cause of peace. He voiceshis significant judgment when he says that "if the organization is likely to promote war" . . . the educatedperson . . . "will rightly decide that it is worthless, andhe will stay out of it if he can." So, he advises us, indirectly, to stay out, because, all through his addressMr. Hutchins makes evident his opinion that the UnitedStates and the other victors are going to lay the "foundations for the next war" in a punitive policy toward Germany and Japan. He says flatly: "The peace of the worlddepends on the restoration of the German and Japanesepeople." We can assume that an educator chose the word "restoration" deliberately and that Mr. Hutchins wants theGermans and the Japanese "restored" to their prewarpower and that he opposes any program of reformationor restraint of evil tendencies. So we can thank heaventhat Mr. Hutchins is not one of the architects of worldorganization and peace, because there are a lot of peoplemuch better informed than he who are convinced thatthe shortest route to another world war would be the"restoration" of the German and Japanese people.It is pure Hutchins assertion, based on no historicalprecedent, that the way to avoid wars is to promote theprosperity and increase the power of war-making nations.On the contrary, there is plenty of evidence that nationswhich are unable to accumulate economic power andmanpower sufficient for successful war-making turn toother methods of advancing the welfare of their people.Indeed such people have been known to emigrate andto colonize and to seek an outlet for individual energiesand ambitions in other lands and to turn away from programs of marching under battle flags to find glory andprosperity in the conquest and despoiling of other nations.In the hour of victory it is well, as Mr. Hutchins admonishes us, "to remember that vengeance is the Lord's,"and to drive out of our minds so far as we can all desiresfor mere revenge upon those who were most responsiblefor the greatest volume and depth of suffering that hasever afflicted the human race. But let us also pray thatwe do not so soften our hearts with mercy and forgivenessthat we condemn future generations to another and evengreater blight of worldwide war. Let us steel our resolution to the doing of justice to the coming generations ofmen and women who are determined to remain free andwho will fight and die rather than submit to slavery. Letus lay the blame fairly and squarely on those evil ideasthat create a national will to rule by force and fear. Letus determine to destroy those ideas and, in justice to ourselves and to our children, let us destroy the economicor military power of those possessed of such ideas, evenif in that destruction we must destroy the properties andthe lives of the irreconcilable enemies of civilization. Andlet us tell the apologists for evil, and the defeatists whowould paralyze our striking arm, that we regard them asfoes of our own household whose counsel we abhor.BRIEF EXCERPTS FROM LONG LETTERSI HAVE seen hundreds of maltreated Allied patients inGerman "hospitals," given typhus shots to the prisonersin Dachau who were still living when we captured It, andI have become familiar with German brutality. Hutchinsis distressed by the "inhumanity" of the proposals ofhis fellow citizens in regard to Germany; but it seems tome that Americans would indeed be inhuman if they feltno sickness and anger and hatred when confronted with thefact of deliberate torture and murder; and it would because for distress if their only reaction was a mild plea for"mercy, if possible."Pfc. Walter W. Watson, *43 ARE the "spheres of influence" of the big powers andtheir security the primary concern of the world? Ido not have the, facts at hand; but I will guess, probablyconservatively, that the "security of the big powers" represents the security of at least half the land area, population, resources, and productive capacity of the earth.And this security cannot be effectively based on anythingbut their unanimous cooperation. Is this doctrine so pernicious? Only in that cockeyed game of pure logic playedso well by Hutchins wherein real facts are replaced byobstructions and he alone calls the shots.Robert H. Scanlan, '36, SM '39THE NEW REALISMIgnores facts of historyand of human natureTHE most distressing aspect of the world into whichyou are going is its indifference to the basic issues,which now, as always, are moral issues. The discussion of the questions on which our fate turns is noteven conducted in moral language. The word security,which is the great word today, has no moral significance;for the worst men can, and usually do, want it. Thewords peace, justice, co-operation, community, and charity have fallen out of our vocabulary. They are, in fact,regarded as signs of weakness and as showing that the onewho uses them is guilty of the capital crime of moderntimes, lack of realism.The rise of the new realism was bound to produceconfusion in America; for the new realism is nothingbut the old Realpolitik. It represents the conquest ofthe United States by Hitler. It suggests that the onepowerful nation in the world which claimed to hatemachiavellianism, and repudiated the doctrine that military superiority implies moral superiority must now embrace these theories or be accused of being "soft." Anation which fought two wars to end war must now, inthe hour of victory, plan to have the greatest navy in theworld; it must have perpetual conscription; and it mustget all the island bases it can lay its hands on. A nationwhich has pretended to the name of Christian must nowabandon the attempt to deserve it.This moral confusion is matched by intellectual disintegration. We seem not to see or not to care about thestupidity of following contradictory policies and takingcontradictory attitudes. Intellectual integrity is comingto be regarded as a sign of softness too.So we call Japanese soldiers fanatics when they dierather than surrender, whereas American soldiers who dothe same thing are heroes. We prove that all Germansare murderers and all Japanese apes, and at the sametime insist that we are going to have one world in whichall men are brothers. We say we are going to re-educatethe Germans, and adopt a policy of non-fraternization.We hate slavery and propose forced labor. We wantEurope rebuilt, but will have no heavy industry inGermany. We want order in Europe, but not if we haveto sacrifice to prevent starvation. We are against dictatorship, but the dictatorship of the proletariat is anexception. And the new day dawns by the light of theburning homes of Tokyo and Yokohama.The new realism is so unrealistic that it blinds us toour own interests. We are like those rugged realisticadvocates of the high protective tariff who propose toexport vast quantities of goods without admitting anyimports to pay for them. To state the thing in its lowest • By ROBERT M. HUTCHINSterms, in terms of money and power, which the newrealists claim are the only terms there are, our politicaland economic interests require a prosperous Germany andJapan. Our interests may, in the light of current readjustments of power in Europe and Asia, require a strongGermany and Japan. But we cannot trade with thosewho have nothing to exchange. And we cannot be surethat our present allies will always be our friends and thatwe shall not sometime need the help of our presentenemies. Mr. Churchill must have regretted in a veryshort time the unwise words he uttered about Russia fiveyears ago. He said: "Everyone can see how Communismrots the soul of a nation, how it makes it abject andhungry in peace, and proves it base, abominable in war."The conquest of the United States by Hitler is revealedby our adoption of the Nazi doctrine that certain racesor nations are superior and fit to rule, whereas othersare vicious and fit only to be exterminated or enslaved.We are now talking about guilty races. We are sayingabout the Germans and the Japanese what Hitler saidabout the Jews. And we are saying about ourselves — orat least we are strongly hinting it — -what Hitler said aboutthe blond teutonic "Aryans." A graduate of the University of Chicago told me that he wished a dense cloudof poison gas would settle over the Japanese islands anddestroy every man, woman, and child in them. He hadthe grace to add, "Maybe I'm not a Christian." Withoutdebating the Christianity of declaring war on women andchildren, I merely point out the arrogance of the assumption that any American is fit to judge all Japenese.Hitler's conquest of America proceeds apace as we succumb to the idea that social and political problems canbe most effectively solved with the aid of a firing squad.I insist that criminals must be punished. Justice demandsthat none of the guilty escape. At the same time it mustbe clear that the characteristic of criminals is that theyare individuals, not nations or races. They should bepunished for what they individually did. What they did,to deserve punishment at the hands of human judges,must have been illegal at the time it was done. If thejudgment is to command the respect of Americans, itmust be shown that the act was one which a patrioticAmerican would not have committed if he had been apatriotic German. Punishment for illegal acts must bemeted out legally, with a fair trial and adherence to theAnglo-Saxon principle that every man is presumed innocent until he is proved guilty. We must remember theancient doctrine that no man is a good judge in his ownThe New Realism is the title of President Hutchins' SpringConvocation address, given in Rockefeller Memorial Chapelon June 15.56 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEcause. And it would do us no harm to apply the maximof equity that one must come into court with cleanhands.We should hesitate to punish Germans for acts whichwe have committed or may commit. For instance, arewe prepared to stand trial ourselves for the violation oftreaties and attacks on undefended places? Are we readyto say that in the face of the tommy guns of the SS wewould have remained true to our ideals of democracy?Is the standard we intend to impose on the Germansthe standard of heroes and saints, or that of the ordinaryman, who throughout the world thinks first of the livesof his family and second about his principles? We couldwish that all men were prepared to die for their principles in peace and in war. We do not expect Americansto do it except in war.We may hesitate a little to punish Germans for crimesagainst Germans unless we are ready for a foreign investigation of American crimes against Americans. Ishould feel better about having Americans judge the anti-semitism and the concentration camps of Germany if Icould forget the anti-semitism and the lynchings in theUnited States. Our religious and racial intolerance isunorganized, and violence is sporadic and illegal. Wehave not yet gone in for these things on the grand Naziscale. But we are sufficiently vulnerable to lay ourselvesopen to some embarrassment if we set ourselves to passjudgment on the domestic conduct of other nations.Of one crime the German people were certainlyguilty, and that is the crime which the new realism sanctifies, the crime of indifference. The German people, allbut a few million of them, were indifferent to the rightsof man and indifferent to the violation of these rightsby those in power. If any nation can be found whichis not guilty of this crime, then it is qualified to judgethe German people for their indifference to the crimescommitted by Germans against Germans, As for ourselves, it is not unfair to say that the American people,except for a few million of them, are guilty of the crimeof indifference in the face of race prejudice, economicexploitation, political corruption, and the degradation ofoppressed minorities. This guilt does not assist our claimto judge and punish the German people for theirs.We all believe today that what was miscalled "Recon-FRIENDS of Gertrude Dudley, for many years head ofthe Department of Physical Education for Women, feltvery far away when they received word of her death. ForIt took place on June 19 at her well-loved ancestral homeaf North Guilford, Connecticut, and so it was not possiblefor them to take that personal part in the succeeding hourswhich always yields some solace. A friend in Chicago hasmade a suggestion eagerly taken up by others: that thosewho desire some feeling of participation might like to contribute to a small memorial fund to be used for the libraryaf the University of Chicago Settlement. Miss Dudley tooka keen interest in this library and after her retirement inS935 worked faithfully there. She would be gratified bythe thought that something was being done in her name struction" in the South after the Civil War was a blunder,if not a crime. One of the factors that shaped publicopinion in the North was the revelation of the treatmentof prisoners at Andersonville in Georgia, where, out of50,000 men, 13,000 died. The Southerners were thenthe guilty race. They must be kept down by militaryforce until the end of time. They could not be permitted to rejoin the society of respectable citizens. Talkof non-fraternization, of reducing the South to a subsistence level, and the punishment of war criminals filledthe air. Every Southerner was guilty of favoring slaveryand rebellion, though it was known that thousands, likeRobert E. Lee, had reluctantly taken up arms only because they thought it was their duty to their States.Andersonville was an atrocity. Those responsible forit deserved punishment. We know now that Andersonville did not prove the depravity of the South. We knowthat by acting as though it did the North hurt itself anddelayed the recovery of the entire country.Today we are struggling to build a world community.It is impossible that 125,000,000 Germans and Japanesecan be excluded from it. We are told that the development of transportation has brought us as close to Berlinas Richmond was to Washington. If this is so, then wehave on an international scale the same task today thatLincoln had in 1865. We now believe that his policy wasthe right, the realistic, one. We believe that if thatpolicy had been followed the national community wouldhave soon been restored, and years of suffering, whichstill leave their mark upon the nation, would have beenavoided. The new realism is unrealistic, for in additionto thwarting our own interests, which it falsely pretendsto serve, it ignores all the facts, the facts of history andthe facts of human nature.If the policy of Lincoln is the right, the realistic, one,and if our task is the same as his, the words of the SecondInaugural should be our guide: "With malice towardnone; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, asGod gives us to see the right, — let us strive on to finishthe work we are in: to bind up the nation's wounds;to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and forhis widow and his orphan; to do all which may achieveand cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, andwith all nations."for a service to which she had given her energies and affection. It is suggested that the gifts be unrestricted, thatthe head of the Settlement board be free to draw on thefund for any need of the library.Few faculty members in the history of the University havehad a wider acquaintance among alumnae. Gertrude Dudley cared; and she kept in touch. It is fitting that thfs;project, though not limited to alumni, should be publicizedthrough the University of Chicago Magazine.Mr. Filbey, vice-president emeritus, has kindly consentedto receive any gifts. The size of these is unimportant; thenumber counts. Address contributions to: Mr. Emery T.Filbey, The University of Chicago and mention the Gertrude Dudley Memorial Fund.GERTRUDE DUDLEY MEMORIAL FUNDONE MAN'S OPINION• By WILLIAM V. MORGENSTERN, '20, J.D. '22RELATIVELY few alumni knew Sam Harper,whose classes in Russian language and institutionswere only for the specialist. But lack of personalacquaintance with Mr. Harper is no reason why alumniwill not find his memoirs, The Russia I Believe In, justpublished by the University of Chicago Press, an enjoyable and informing book. When Sam Harper diedsuddenly in early 1943, he had been working intermittently over a couple of years getting these memoirs inshape, but he left them unfinished. The completion ofthe book was undertaken by his brother, Paul V. Harper,with the assistance of a graduate student at the University, Ronald Thompson, who added selections fromoriginal manuscripts, correspondence, and notes to themanuscript. The editing is well done ; the result is arunning story that reads as Sam Harper talked to hisfriends at the University, and covers, with no captiousworries about minor indiscretions, his study of Russiafrom the time he set out in 1902, on "a cut-rate ticketunder the name of F. C. Hatch" to study Russian in theSchool of Oriental Languages at Paris, until Germanyinvaded Russia.This is no scholarly book nor was it intended to be.It is an attractive journal winding through forty yearsin which there were tremendous changes in Russia andthe world. The primary purpose is not to give an historian's account of those changes and the forces whichproduced them, but there is a lot of information in thememoirs that serve effectively and interestingly to orienta reader and give him the coordinated outlines of theyears of observation. Sam Harper's greatest virtue — andperhaps his weakness — was his liking for people and hisconcentration on their reactions and views. As. this bookproves, he knew and had access to an amazingly largenumber of the figures who were playing leading roles, aposition he never used for his personal prestige. He wasjust as much concerned with the unimportant people;the peasants and the porters of Russia, as he was withthe politicians, the statesmen, and the scholars; theyhelped get the feel of the times. The memoirs naturallygive a subjective account, a warm and sympathetic journal. . They begin with two chapters which reveal something in the life of the household of the dynamic firstpresident of the University, who gave a birthday partyfor Sam's twentieth anniversary and invited as gueststhose associated with the Biblical World, a publicationstarted by President Harper the same day that Sam hadbeen born.Sam Harper made many shrewd and sound judgmentsabout Russia, not all of which, unfortunately, are in thebook, or at least are not flatly and obviously put. He records his observation during a trip in the first WorldWar that the American businessmen seeking orders areplaying to the nobility, oblivious to a surging revolution ary movement that would soon control the placing ofbusiness. When he returned from his last trip in 1939he had the key to the seeming contradiction betweenmounting production and a low standard of living — theconcentration on military production. He was one of thefew who was confident that Russia would not crumbleunder the German blitzkrieg; he was even confident thatStalingrad would not 'fall.The career to which Sam Harper set himself with thestrong guidance of his father was a difficult one, and theproblems are reflected in the book. In 1900, neitherAmerican scholarship nor the American people had muchinterest in remote and mysterious Russia, and the presentwar, as well as the events leading to it, demonstrated howlittle understanding had been achieved in the forty years.Comparatively few students followed in the .path of SamHarper; the country was confused because the revolutionary course of Russia produced emotion and alarmthat prevented an objective understanding. A foreignstudent in Russia had to move cautiously; the Czaristgovernment was suspicious of any one who was knownto communicate with the revolutionaries. After the Communists got control of the revolution, distrust of foreignobservers, and restrictions direct and tacit, were large impediments to study.A result of the obstruction, the bias, and the emotioninvolved in his work was in a sense to drive Sam Harperunderground. His public speeches were infrequent, andtheir setting had to be chosen with caution. His scholarlyoutput was retarded: he wrote but two books and editedanother, a much smaller contribution than he could havemade. He was often used for considerable periods by theState Department for unofficial work, and for a timehe held an official appointment. These undertakings, andhis contact with what he called the "effectives" — thosein and out of official positions who were influential inthe shaping of American policy — were his main efforts.Some of his steam he worked out by talking and writinginformally to friends and small groups. It was alwayshard to maintain the objective attitude, but he was conscientious in his attempts to be so; he tried to understandwhat was going on rather- than to judge. By and largehe got no credit either in this country or in Russia. Afactual statement of a development in the Soviet program woud be variously characterized as the view of a"red," a "red-baiter," and even, in the later stages, asthat of a "Nazi." His carefully circumscribed statementabout the so-called "Sisson papers" was twisted and misrepresented. The Communists in Russia could not refrain from commenting on his "bourgeoise" point ofview. The reflection of the difficulties of his work recurthroughout the book, but in no complaining way. Thereis sometimes exasperation and irritation, but there is nodefeat.aGUADALCANAL DIARY, 1945THE squat little Marine was polite, but patientlyscornful."Hell, mate, there ain't nothin' you couldwrite about this here place, this here rock. Ev'ythinghappened here two years ago. What's there to writeabout now?"In a strict sense, maybe the little Marine was right. Ithad been many months since the First Division Marineshad landed, since they had taken the first offensive stepagainst the Japs, had whipped them at the Tenaru andjVEatanikau, in the banyan-covered hills and in the skies,had fought off and sunk their heavy transports.But there were still things to tell about, even two yearsafter this was a bloody battlefield. To the newcomer —the "Pacific boot" — Guadalcanal has as much a storyas there is an everlasting story about Gettysburg orSoissons or as there will always be about so many battlefields of this war.To start with, there is always the personal story.Every novice here does it. It's expected. Things andplaces that have become commonplace to the old-timersare fresh and novel and impressive, especially when youstill have a recent memory of the surf at Waikiki andof a last lavish meal in a tiny inn in Honolulu, wherea wizened old lady in a black pajama-like habit hobbledabout, serving roast duckling, bits of steak dipped inoyster sauce, fried rice with shrimp, and sweet roast pork,and where the owner, a sad-eyed fellow, wrote theChinese names of these savory dishes on our bills so wecould send them home and let them know that someaspects of going to war weren't too bad.Your pallid features, your soft look — as if you havebeen eating well, which, up to now, you indeed have —and your starched khakis give you away immediatelyas a "Pacific boot." The tanned, lithe Marines andsoldiers stare at you and ask, "How long you been over,mate?" When you grin and say, "One hour," theyroar good-naturedly and shout, "Oh, brother, you lucky,lucky guy, you lucky, lucky guy. You're gonna love it!You're gonna love it, Yaaaaaah!"On your way to camp, the kid at the wheel of therattling jeep wants to know about things back home.He shoots questions, most of them variants of "How'rethe wimmen?" And he points out — a bit languidly,for he has been here many months — the historic spotsalong famed Highway 50. The Tenaru river, clear andclean and cool-looking. The Matanikau, where Leathernecks once died to win this land and where other Marinesnow stand knee-deep and wash their clothes. We jerkpast a crudely printed sign: "Remember Hell's Point!"A few dozen yards to our right is the Pacific and atseveral spots along the shore are huge, rusty bulks ofJap ships, two-thirds submerged, their prows stickingupward. Once Japs tried to land off these vessels. Now,diving boards jut from slits in their sides and Marinesplunge into the warm waters. On the highway, too, are signs of Guadalcanal'smodernization. Billboards urging you to buy bonds.Traffic signs: "25 Miles an Hour— ENFORCED!" SternMP's in their speedy jeeps, traveling up and down tosee that the rules are kept.You're constantly reminded of your very brief timeout here. By kids in their teens, talking of gory fightingon Guam and Eniwetok and Engebi. By those who inform you, "Hell, I got more time in a foxhole than someguys got in the whole Marine Corps!"But gradually you begin to lose some of your "boot"characteristics. You draw all sorts of equipment. Youplay poker on payday and lose twenty bucks, but winit — and, happily, a bit more — back the next night. Youswim in the Pacific and collect weirdly-colored shells.You learn to appreciate fresh water showers and togripe about dehydrated eggs, milk, potatoes. You become adept at dodging coconuts which occasionally dropfrom the surrounding trees, an event invariably greetedby some nearby wit with a cry of "Timbah!"You meet a lot of men who were out this way whenyou were still writing little sentences about how civilianscould help win the war.A Navy corpsman, rotund, rough, and ribald, whoresponds to jibes about his heavy eating with "All hailthe Navy corpsman! First in the pay line, first in thechow line — and, yah, first on the beaches!"A trio of weight lifters who, despite tough training,oppressive heat, and heavy rain, solemnly and steadilywork out with their dumb-bells and bar-bells every day.A young lieutenant who has just won the Silver StarMedal for bravery on Guam but prefers to talk of glorious fishing days in Idaho.And the inevitable boy from Brooklyn, who thinksBrooklyn women are the prettiest and brainiest, thatBrooklyn men are the handsomest and bravest, thatBrooklyn is indeed the capital of the world.Or the equally inevitable first sergeant, a Marine ofthe old school, with a pug nose and swaggering mustache.He wants to know, when you are stripping to dig yourvery first foxhole, "You ain't diggin' it right till you getblisters. You got blisters yet?" You haven't at first, butwhen he ambles by ten minutes later, you hold up yourhand and show him a handsome one along the thumb.He looks happier and walks away, as gleeful as if hehad just devised some extra police duties for someone.Then there are the sad little things, those little flashesyou know will stay in your memory forever. Remindersthat, beneath the rough talk and profanity and this business of learning to kill, there is often softness and sentiment in these men.That abnormal zest for mail, the blatant joy when youget some, and the forlorn stares and resentment of thosewho get none. The constant chatter about the girls backhome and wives' cooking. The talk about going backagain. Anything stimulates it. A letter. A favorite8THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 9song. A magazine article. A box of "pogie bait"cookies, cake, candy, and canned goods from the familyin Akron or Nashville or Los Angeles.The boy in the next tent is someone you don't easilyforget. He picks up a picture of his wife and startsthe battered Jap phonograph. Sinatra sings "Don'tFence Me In." The kid holds up his wife's picture."Ain't she the most beautiful thing, though?" he says,to no one in particular. He presses the picture to hisnaked chest and dances about, with eyes half-closed.There is a swarthy Marine from Manhattan who asks,"Hey, you know any po'try I kin put in a letter to mywife? My wife, she likes po'try, but who am I that Ishould know po'try. I'm a truck driver." So- you givehim some lines from a favorite Elizabeth Browningsonnet: "How do I love thee? Let me count theways. . .""Good stuff, whatever it means," he says, but wants to know, "Shou'nt it be 'thou', not 'thee.' " "How do Ilove thee, How do I love thou, what the hell's the rightone?" You tell it to him again, hinting that he can'timprove much on Browning. He laboriously copies thelines and adds the little white lie to his wife that he"made up a pome."So days pass, then weeks, then a month or more. Youbegin wondering where you're going from here and youlose some of the pallor and your khakis are no longerstarched. And when some newcomer shows an interest inthis place and suggests he'd like to write a sort of"Guadalcanal Diary, 1945" you are just a little boredand unenthusiastic and a bit patronizing."Hell, nothing much to write about here now," youtell him. "All the big news happened here two, threeyears back, you know."Sgt. Herman Kogan, '36Marine Corps Combat Correspondent.THE LIVES OF A TEST PILOTOUT of western Tennessee in the fall of '25 cameJames Wakefield Burke, fleet of foot and with anambition to become a journalist. When he wasn'twriting themes and learning conjugations he was rounding the curves on the Bartlett track.From Chicago he transferred to Southern Californiato finish his formal education and run his last race. Outof college, he joined with two other track men to organize Dodge, Incorporated, a company which is still designing and manufacturing trophies. Then came the warand Burke entered the Transport Pilot Command service.He was later released to become one of ten test pilotsfor Republic Aviation Corporation at Evansville, Indiana,home of the Thunderbolt.For three years Burke has been climbing into the clouds,leveling off, and diving to earth; with every seventhweek off to relax his nerves.When asked how you'd recognize a test pilot on StateStreet, Burke tells you the man will have the characteristics of youth — when he loses this he loses out. He hasa roguish sense of humor — seldom grave or dour. Heloves to fly and, without boasting, quickly becomes irksome with his eternal pilot prattle. He casts aside anythoughts of danger, with which he lives every workinghour. Withal he is harmless, likeable, hail-well-met.At work, he begins by making a careful examinationof the untried plane, checking off each item on a functional flight report sheet clipped to a metal pad strappedto his leg. After the strain and first uncertainity of thetake-off, he levels off at 8,000 feet, having entered manyreadings and numerous checks on his sheet as he shotupward. High in the sky he dares the wings to collapse, the oil line to clog, the gas connections to burstinto flame, the guns to jam. Then miles into the skyhe climbs — to 25,000 feet. Again he levels off, checks theinstruments, takes a deep breath, shoves the stick for ward, and eases open the throttle. The altimeter racesmadly backwards, the engine screams through the air,the plane, in convulsions, threatens to explode. The pilottugs at the stick and after an eternity the nose slowlyrounds upward. It is then that the curtain of blackoutcrawls over his eyes — first a murky yellow screen, thenthe redout and finally ebony blackness. It is then thatthe test pilot is jolted with the realization that otherlives are streaking through the skies with him. He seeshis mother and father, his wife and little Billy, who is"gonna be a flyer, too" when he grows up. But thedark veil slowly dissipates and the test pilot realizes thatthe plane is still in one piece — just as he knew it wouldbe. Now back to the field and the day's work is accomplished.This is the life of James Wakefield Burke, husband ofAngela Jallitch, '42, and father of two-year-old Miriam.Vice-president of the company for whom he works ishis former Midway classmate and Stagg Field yell king,Mundy I. Peale, '29,whose wife was BetseyBell Farwell, '28. As wego to press Burke maybe visiting war zones asa guest of the AirTransport Command.He was appointed byEsquire, for whom hehas written numerousarticles, to be their representative on one ofthese trips which theCommand has b e-e nsponsoring. He stillwants and expects tocontinue his journalism. James Wakefield BurkeNEWS OF THE QUADRANGLES• By CHET OPALReuknighiedFOUR hours later it rained. It rained hard, witha roaring release of pent fury, because rain hadbeen impossible djuring the 35th Annual UniversitySing, because it hadn't even sprinkled on a Sing in allthose thirty-five years."Rain," said the demon meteorologist in HutchinsonCourt to an alumnus who wasn't there, "rain, it is longoverdew."And that, you* remember, was when the sky groaned,and there was a mighty bellow of thunder up above andS. Edwin Earle's organ coughed consumptively and voiceswent rheumy with the fear of wet weather and bone-rust.But only for a moment, because the powers-that-be, having heard the pun and dismissed it as the thunder couldnot, promptly forgave the demon meteorologist and attended instead to the weather itself. And therefore itdidn't rain until four hours or so after the first simultaneous piping up of voice and organ.Nevertheless, the sun was absent, even in reflection; itwas a moonless night. But there were numerous lights,vari-colored and not quite lost in the dark they had beenset to dispel, and they swung down like cables from thebuildings. And, glory, how the people sang; the alumni,the uniformed men who had wandered by, and the students who had been walking by looking for a cokebarand had been deceived by what they thought was a jukebox up in Mitchell Tower echoing down into the enormous cup that is Hutchinson Court.The fraternities, a dozen of them, mixed their membersand sang each other's songs: the Delta Kappa Epsilon,Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma, Phi Sigma Delta, Delta Upsilon, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Gamma Delta, Pi LambdaPhi, Beta Theta Pi, Phi Kappa Psi, Psi Oopsilong, AlphaDelta Phi. . . And as for the women, they all, as JamesJoyce says, "jined in with shoutmost shoviality."The solemn note was struck also during the Sing — themoment of tribute to the 140 men and women, formerlyof the University, who died in World War II.The Sing, as usual, provided the penultimate sceneon week-long observances, teas, dinners, gatherings ofall kinds, including the Wednesday night attendance atThe Human Adventure Program; the Thursday nightmeeting addressed by Trustee Marshall Field; the Fridaynight round table discussion on the San Francisco Conference by Louis Gottschalk, Hans Morgenthau, IrvingPflaum, and Clifton Utley; the Saturday Alumnae Breakfast and the Alumni Assembly. As usual, the Alumniwalloped the Varsity in a baseball game, 7 to 6, rallyingrather late in life to save glory from the grip of theyoung. All in all Arthur Gibbon Bovee, '07, reunionchairman, convoyed the homecomers through what couldbe put down as a busy week. High point of Alumni Week, of course, was the Assembly, capitalized for reasons which will be cited immediately — no less than $218,715.65 was presented PresidentHutchins by Arthur A. Baer, Alumni Foundation chairman, as this year's alumni gift. The figure, which contrasts with the $137,000 given last year, is somewhat deceptive. Actually, it includes four bequests totalling $107,-168.62; so that the gift for 1945 was in fact only $111,-547.03. The $.03 probably represents a postage stampsent by some humble alumnus who thought his gift sosmall that its return by the Foundation might be deemedits proper acknowledgment. No gift, of course, is everconsidered too small.In addition to the presentation of the gift, there weretwo other highpoint events, the knighting of almost twoscore alumni (see list elsewhere in this Magazine) fortheir service to mankind, and the acceptance speech ofPresident Hutchins on presentation of the gift.President Hutchins dipped into the future, far as the40-inch refracting telescope at Yerkes could see, andbrought forth some surprises. He said he was in favorof lowering the entrance requirements of the College todemonstrate to the nation that students at all levels ofintelligence can benefit from a liberal education, an education for freedom. Only the limitation of housing facilities for students in the first two years of the Collegeprevents the commencement of this demonstration, headded. He spoke of the quick progress of the College,of its steady saltant enrolment increases. He underscoredhis thesis that every qualified American should have atleast three years College education, and these in a liberalprogram. Three years beyond these should be devoted totraining only the best qualified students for doctorates.The programs of the divisions and departments of theUniversity should be as carefully organized as that of theCollege, President Hutchins told the alumni in MandelHall.He brought up for the second time in six months thesubject of adult education, pointing out that it is notthose graduating now from the colleges who will guideour destiny in the next ten years, "perhaps the mostcritical this nation will have faced." It is those who areolder but not necessarily wiser who have their hands onthe reins, perhaps only because they are older, and it isthey who most need the liberalizing influence of acquaintance with the old masters.Therefore, the University, through University College,is taking a leading role in adult education, PresidentHutchins said. The use of the lecture method is passing.There is instead the discussion of the great books, familiarizing many with the great traditions of thoughtwhich have shaped in some sense the history of the worldbut whose most urgent messages have somehow been lost10THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 11to most men. He spoke of the five hundred adults enrolled in the Great Book courses of the University College, only fifteen of them seeking credit, of the seventy-nine potential discussion leaders now being trained tocarry the Great Books discussion idea into every community of the Chicago area, of the University's participation in efforts to spread the same techniques in NewYork, Cleveland, and Detroit, for example.He spoke of the faculty housing project by which itis hoped to bring some one hundred and fifty facultyfamilies into a centralized building group on the southside of the Midway; a project which might reach completion as early as next year. Among President Hutchins'revelations was the report that at least three new institutes will result from the University's war activities:institutes for research in biophysics, metals, and industrialmedicine. The extent of the University's share in thewar effort can be gauged by its $33,000,000 budget, whichtrebles that of a normal prewar year.Still looking ahead, President Hutchins reported thataccording to Secretary Neil Jacoby, the University willneed $65,000,000 in new outlays for the next ten years.If taxes on industry continue as they are, he said, it ispossible that corporations can be looked to for increasingly large gifts. These will come for the most part without strings attached, and will be for pure research.The address by Mr. Hutchins was full of pride in thingsalready done and of hope in things that will be done;and there was in it a hearty gratefulness for those alumniwho by their contributions have placed at the disposalof the University money free for any use to which theadministration might see fit to put it. Unrestricted gifts,it was emphasized, are almost the only coin by which theUniversity can execute plans growing out of the operationof the institution itself and not out of the minds of thedonors, who seldom see the place as a whole. Examination of ReorganizationThis report will be unintelligible to those who have notbeen reading the Magazine for the past year; and dullprobably to those who have.But last December, a far-seeing Board of Trustees indited a liberal document calling for a reorganization ofthe University's political structure. The purpose was tobroaden the base of representation in the University Senate and to provide a means of resolving deadlocks betweenthe President and the Senate.The first election under the new plan was held lastmonth. The Senate had been broadened to include some450 members, assistant and associate professors havingbeen added to the complement of full professors whoformerly composed the Senate body. Of the 450, 351cast ballots, electing a 51 -man council as the supremeacademic body on the campus. Of those elected 45 arefull professors, representing most of the departments ofthe University, one an associate professor, and five assistant professors. Six deans were selected. Three womenare listed. About ten days later, the Council elected aseven-man Committee of the Council. All are full professors.Four non-voting members will be added to the Council,including President Hutchins, who will preside, and threepersons selected by him from among the vice-presidentsand the dean of faculties. The Council will meet oncea month during the autumn, winter, and spring quarters.The Council's Committee will meet once every twoweeks with President Hutchins. The Council has beengiven all legislative powers in matters affecting the University, and has with President Hutchins the right ofmutual veto. Any deadlock between the Council and thePresident will be resolved by the Board of Trustees. TheCouncil members are elected to three, two, and one yearterms.Many were missed at the Thirty-fifth Annual University Sing.£ '¦^ S*:" ** •* 9 .

Nishimura, instructor. College credit goes to thosewho learn the script; my hat goes off to those who canlearn the language even funetically.The course in Japanese is expected to be of interestto military personnel awaiting transshipment from theEuropean to the Pacific theaters and to persons concernedwith trade and cultural relations with the East, accordingto Clem O. Thompson, assistant director of the HomeStudy Department.The correspondence courses for the blind are beingoffered with the cooperation of the Hadley Correspondence School for the Blind, of Winnetka, Illinois, a privately supported institution long active in teachingthrough the grade and high school levels. The Hadleyschool will set up in braille all the reading matter, including syllabi and books. The first course to be taughtwill be in English composition, for which the greatestdesire has been expressed.Veterans1 EducationIn order to help returning servicemen get their academic bearings, the College of the University is allowingthem twelve weeks to brush up and revive study habitsbefore deciding their status under the placement testsystem which does away with high school credits. Theveterans, meanwhile, will pursue their studies on thebasis of a diagnostic test so that no time is lost.The College, which accepts students with two yearsof high school or the equivalent, will give the veteran ageneral diagnostic test on entrance, if he desires it, andtentative placements will be made. If the indication isthat the veteran would profit from refresher or reviewwork in some fields of study, he will have the option of registering in special sections of such general courses asEnglish, mathematics, the humanities, and the social, biological, and physical sciences. The sections will have oneextra meeting a week.The placement tests measure and recognize fully theveteran's achievement, without consideration of how orwhere that knowledge and ability were acquired. Withthe advantage of maturity and training, many veteransshould be able to lighten their requirements for the degree. Students set their own pace in the College, takingcourse examinations whenever they think they are ready.This Way OutEvery once in a while somebody leaves the University of Chicago. Picks up his hat and sheepskin andgoes home. To formalize such departures commencements of the end are held.Convocation exercises June 15, with diplomas beingdelivered in two installments, saw 549 students get theirdegrees. The afternoon half of the ceremonies was remarkable for the fact that 216 students received theirbachelor's degree from the College, the largest class toemerge since the new College plan was inaugurated threeyears ago. An honorary Doctor of Science degree wasgranted to Walter S. Adams, AM '00, director of MountWilson Observatory and formerly of Yerkes, for his development of methods of measuring the distance of starsby their spectra. The honorary award was the first fromthe University since 1941. Six veterans, studying under the"GI Bill of Rights," received degrees. One of these, ListenLands, of Commerce, Texas, saw action in the SouthPacific as a non-com in combat intelligence.Executives Program GraduationTwenty-seven topflight Chicago business executiveswere graduated in the first class of the executives programof the University on June 26, after two years of nightstudy in an unprecedented evening program covering allphases of business administration.Graduation exercises were held in Mandel Hall on theMidway at 7:45 P.M. President Hutchins delivered theaddress and awarded the certificates. All but two of theexecutives group also will receive the degree of Master ofBusiness Administration at the summer convocation,September 14.The executives program was inaugurated at UniversityCollege downtown by the School of Business especially forgraduates with substantial business experience at the executive level, but executives with less than a college education were accepted also. A second group of 59 has beenmeeting since last fall and is half way through the program.Both groups give a cross section of business management, holding positions in manufacturing companies, railroads, utilities, department stores, steel companies, banks,research organizations, chain stores, oil companies, mailorder houses, newspapers, government agencies, real estatecompanies, and other types of business.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 13ALUMNI CITATIONS(Continued from Cover II)versity of the Philippines.
