Werner, DirectorREBUILDING METROPOLITAN CHICAGOA plan for tomorrow beginning todayIn a recent "Better Chicago" contest sponsored by Chicago's HeraldAmerican, Louis Wirth, 19, AM '25,PhD '36, Professor of Sociology,teamed with three architects to winfirst prize ($1,000) in the transportation division and second prize ($5,-000) in the over-all competition. Thepurpose of the contest was to securesuggestions on replanning Chicago fortomorrow.The Wirth et al proposal was acomprehensive plan dealing witheverything from the Loop to the residential communities.Bluntly charging that Chicago'stransportation system is obsolete, inadequate and chaotic, the Wirthgroup considered this section of theirplan the first item on the agenda anda prerequisite for the accomplishmentof the other aspects of their proposals.TransportationThey begin by tearing up hundredsof miles of steel rails in the "innercore of the city" and rerouting freightnot destined for this congested areaqver belt lines bordering the city,tapped at intervals for serving thevarious sections.The plans call for a single hugecentral passenger terminal beginningwith the present Union Station on thesouth and ending with the presentNorthwestern Station on the northwith a new structure connecting two.This will also be the terminal for allinter-city buses.Columns of locomotive smoke,however, will no longer roll smuttilyaround the Daily News Building orthe Opera House. All passenger trainswill be routed through one of threeoutlying stations: 1) Englewood at63d Street for south and east traffic;2) Cicero at 43 d Street for southwesttraffic; and 3) Cicero at Irving ParkBoulevard for north and northwesttraffic. At these, the only stops withinthe metropolitan area other than theCentral terminal, all steam enginesgive way to electric or Diesel power.The right-of-ways recaptured and thereclaiming of hundreds of acres of THE PURPOSEThe purpose of this plan is tostimulate and guide the people ofMetropolitan Chicago to securefor themselves and their childrenthe blessings of a good community.We do not propose to give thecity a veneer in order more effectively to hide its blight. Werecognize that we must plan fora Chicago that already exists. Itis not the Chicago after the fireof 1871 nor the Coventry, theStalingrad, or even the Londonafter the Nazi fury had spent itself.Though large sections of Chicago lie virtually in ruins, thoughnearly one fourth of the area ofthe city proper is in need of major surgery, though many of thefacilities are hopelessly obsoleteand wasteful, and though evenmany of the newest developments»in the metropolis proceed underconditions of complete anarchyand can only result in aggravatedchaos, we are still bound to conserve what is and cannot be replaced except over a considerableperiod of time.This plan for rebuilding Chicagosets the goals toward which tomove. The city will be virtuallycompletely rebuilt in the next fiftyto one hundred years. Without aplan it will be no better then thanit is now. With the plan as a guidewe can begin today, as we undertake every improvement, to proceed step by step to contributeto the building of a better Chicago.We are planning for a population of approximately 3.5 millionwithin the city proper and slightlyunder 5 million in the region contiguous to Chicago. On the basisof recent trends and existing factors, we do not anticipate variations exceeding five per cent during the decade 1940-50. We donot regard a relatively stable population as either a calamity oreven a disadvantage. Though itmay reduce speculative development and gains, it will definitelyfacilitate planned progress. Whatever the future population maybe, the proposed plan is sufficiently flexible to absorb it.From the Brochure high priced commercial, industrial,and residential land is estimated topractically pay the cost of this surgery.No suburban traffic will be routedinto the central terminal. It is recommended that the abandoned depotsbe modernized as terminals for manyof the divorced commuter trains. Forexample, suburban traffic could be accommodated at the present LaSalleStreet Station linked by a loop to thepresent Grand Central Station, thuseliminating the dead end congestionand facilitating loading and unloadingwithout engine switching. This couldhandle the extensive suburban trafficof the Illinois Central, Rock Island,and other south side lines.Plans for other suburban traffic, toprevent cluttering up the long distance railroads and the central terminal, make the interurban lines extensions of the Rapid Transit System.During rush hours, suburban trainsmay continue to the center of the city ;otherwise their runs terminate at theouter terminals of the Rapid TransitSystem. This system will operate insubways under the congested districtsand through open-cut, depressed right-of-ways in other sections of the city.Busses and surface lines, in a gridiron system, will do the shuttle workand, of course, the general plan callsfor a network of superhighways andtrucking lanes.Horizontal ElevatorsThe plan for the central businessdistrict is unique in at least one particular. It provides for a horizontalelevator system. Quoting from thebrochure :"Aside from retail trade, the central business district will contain thefinancial and commercial section, theadministrative office and service establishments, hotels, large theatres, museums, and cultural institutions, themain railroad terminal, and a civiccenter."Since this central business districtis actually very small in area, wechoose to treat it as if it were onelarge building with modern elevator6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEservice — except the elevator serviceis horizontal in movement instead ofvertical."No mass surface transportation orpassenger automobile traffic, exceptof a special nature such as taxi cabs,will be allowed within the centralbusiness district. Local passenger circulation within this area will be provided through the use of specially designed moderate speed electricallydriven trams."Transportation on these tramscould be furnished at low fares oreven free of charge. The giving ofthis service would not be as costly asit may seem since, through the exist-ance of such a tram system, the masssurface transportation system will nothave to operate its equipment throughthe highly congested area with its attendant high operating costs and lossof time. If free service were giventhe operating costs could be reducedsince there is expense and delay incollecting fares."Actually, since the bulk of usersof this system will come to the districton the mass transportation system and would ordinarily receive transfers, orwill park their automobiles in thefree parking spaces ringing this district, the only actual free users willbe those people who walk to the district."This tram system will connect allpoints of the central district includingthe railroad terminal and culturalgroup. The trams will also connectdirectly with the parking facilities andthus make entrance into the districtof individual passenger -traffic largelyunnecessary."Civic Centers, Et CeteraTwo groups of new municipalbuildings are recommended for thecentral business district. The first isan administrative group covering,with surrounding green areas, aboutsix blocks. They would house centraladministrative, executive, and judicialfunctions of the city as well as thelocal branches of the State and Federal governments. This group shoulddominate the district and be aesthetically important.The second group would be locatedon the Lake front. It would include the Art Institute, main public library,and a civic auditorium.The overall plan provides for anetwork of boulevards with greenbelts, parks, etc. through approximately 70 self sustaining and largelyselfgoverning communities of about50,000 each. There is also provisionfor manufacturing and factory districts, educational, recreational andother public services and, of course, aplan for government and administration to conform with the streamlining.The brochure closes with an ad-monitation to begin at once puttingthe plan into action: "Here is a program of immediate action upon whichall sections and interests of Chicagocan unite. . . The cities of the OldWorld are finding the incentives fortheir rebirth in the ruins all aboutthem. We who have been sparedsuch devastation must find our incentives in the recognition of the greatdisparity between our great past andour present, between our great possibilities and our actual accomplishments."IAEZ a2SIO£ WALK TRAFFIC i-ANES T/iAM UHLOADINCr news STAMPELECTRIC TRAMThe operator of the tram — in the nose — also controls the opening and closing of the three exit doors on either sideof the car. The trams have their own lanes with loading platforms serving both trams and taxis.LETTER FROM JAPANUnless much harm will be doneApril 14, 1946.Oberlin CollegeDepartment of HistoryI am enclosing an interesting analysis of present conditions in Japan written by a friend who was a graduatestudent in political science at the University of Chicagoin 1939 and 1940.Isamu was reared in Hawaii, went to the Universityof Hawaii and subsequently studied for about four yearsin Japan. At Chicago he was particularly interested inJapanese political parties since the Meiji Restoration.Also, while at Chicago he met a native Japanese girl whowas in training to become a Y.W.C.A. secretary in Tokyo.They became engaged, and through her influence Isamubecame a converted Presbyterian.After Pearl Harbor, he went to Harvard and assistedin the teaching of spoken Japanese to army trainees. Hisfiancee was now back in Tokyo, and Isamu's loyaltiesmust have been torn. I received a note, three monthsdelayed, saying that he had decided to take the opportunity to go to Japan on one of the exchange vessels.After reaching Tokyo, he and Mitsuko wefe married. Arecent letter from her tells how twice she carried theirfour-day-old baby, Hiroshi, down to a hospital basementto escape major air raids. Isamu now is employed inthe office of General MacArthur's advisors from the Department of State.Allan B. Cole, AM '37, PhD '40Assistant Professor of HistoryMarch 28, 1946.Dear Cole san:... As you may already know, Japan is now in a very,very chaotic state. The former leadership has at leastbeen cast aside but the new has not yet appeared. Oldinfluences and forces are still in existance in a powerfulform in the background ready to reappear at the firstopportunity. The new leadership is still uncertain of itsfuture and is afraid to come out openly.The Center Is GoneThe people are not only puzzled but are physically andmentally prostrated. There is no leadership and they donot know where tq turn for help. Their patriotic spiritis gone and they are utterly demoralized. They seem tohave lost waterever fine qualities they possessed in thepast. They have been defeated but they want to live,not with any ideals, but merely for the sake of living.In short, to use a blunt term, the animal has appeared.The Emperor and his Court, the inilitary and the oncedivine state, have all been affected beyond their imagination. The center is gone from their lives.Real leadership is wanted, but there is none at present.The oldtime politicians and bureaucrats have been dis credited, but the newer men have no influence and prestige. The political parties are not guiding the people.There is no public opinion, so to speak. The partiesare not rallying the support of the public. Economic reasons have a great deal to do with this situation. The foodshortage is the basic problem. When a man has to worryabout his next meal, he is not going to spend the timeand effort for things which do not have a direct bearingupon the acquisition of food. This struggle for existencehas caused men to act and behave in a way which otherwise they would never have thought of doing.Proteges Are Popping OutThe general prediction is that the conservatives will befavored in the coming election. The Progressives and theLiberals (the conservative parties) are still powerful inspite of the purge. The masters are gone and are inthe background, but their proteges are popping out.They act and think like the masters. So, there you are.Their political machinery is still existent, their constituencies are still there.The Socialists lack the political machinery and experience. They are, however, slated to make a strong showing, but not strong enough to overcome the conservatives.It would be interesting to watch the outcome of the largenumber of independents.The Communists will be much stronger than in thepast, but they do not have the public's favor because oftheir extreme ideas. Critics say that Sanzo Nozaka is sureto be elected. He is the most popular of the Communists.The slogan among the electorate is to vote for the partyrather than individuals. The Social Democratic Partyappeals to us most. [He and his wife, Mitsuko.] It standsbetween the conservatives and the Communists. Theresults of the election will be known to you by the timethis letter reaches you.Bewildered — DisillusionedMacArthur is doing very well. On second thought,however, it seems to me that the success of his administration is due primarily to the unexpected nature of theJapanese. That is to say, the Japanese were so affectedby the defeat that they were left helpless. Added to thisthey were happy in a way that the war ended for theywere growing weary of the hopeless nature of the wartoward the end.Another factor that made them accept the situationcalmly was the discovery of facts regarding the Army andthe Navy and the government which were utterly disreputable which made them shameful and in some casesaroused their anger against them. In short, they wereready for a change in the situation with the hope thatsomething better would develop. Their faith in the Emperor, of course, can not be overlooked.78 THE UNIVERSITY OFThe political situation is bad at present because thepeople do not have any faith in the Shidehara Government. The press is unanimous in advocating its downfall The public believes that the Cabinet has the backing of GHQ (General Headquarters). Otherwise, theysay that there is no reason for its existence. The publicbelieves that the existence of the Cabinet will result inthe victory for the conservatives. The election, they say,must be executed under a reform cabinet to effect governmental renovation. They would like to see GHQcarry through all reform plans, such as purges, financialreforms, etc., and help dethrone all feudalistic and reactionary elements. For example, they complain that thePrivy Councillors have not been purged. The true liberalswant GHQ to reform the country with responsibility sothat they may reappear with a sense of security. Ofcourse they want the Occupation to last for some time.They say that GHQ is destroying but not constructing.The Occupation Must LastIn regard to the actual building up of a democraticform of government and the inculcation of democraticideas in education, religion, economy, etc., the Japanesewould like to do it themselves. To be sure, with theadvice and consent of GHQ. There are matters whichwill and must be retained, but there are some thingswhich are universal. It seems to me that if it is possibleto clean out all reactionary and undesirable elements sothat true liberals may have their sway, these liberals willbe able to work out their own solution. The Occupationmust last so long as to be sure that the liberals are safe.In the latter stages the occupation should be merely forpolice purposes.The public now looks to GHQ as the "government" ofJapan. What GHQ directs will be willingly assented toby the people. But they have no faith or confidence inthe Cabinet. That is why governmental measures fail.They would rather see GHQ carry out fully the directivesthey issue. This of course and obviously is not the policyof GHQ.The Renaissance Society at the University, 108 Good-speed Hall, announces its closing exhibitions for theseason 1945-6 which, with the addition of lectures andother events yet to be announced, will conclude its activities for the year.Beginning on April 26 and continuing through May25, "English Drawings of the ISth and Early 19th Centuries" will be shown.The final exhibition., to open June 5th, will be of thework of Paul Klee and will conclude a continuous program of exhibitions and art events which have attracteda wide audience.The Renaissance Society makes a unique contributionto University life, bringing to the quadrangles exhibitionsof significant works of art. These are hung in the small CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe Emperor Should RemainThe draft constitution was received calmly by the public. Half of them do not understand what it is all aboutanyway. One thing they would like to see though is theexistence of the Emperor in some form, for otherwise theyfear there will be nothing to hold the country together.The prevailing idea is that the constitution was"granted" by GHQ and it is a good one, but that it willtake a long, long time before the people can catch upwith it. The provision about the total and absolute renunciation of war sounded silly and thoughtless at first,but on second thought it seemed logical since Japan willnot be able to wage war or defend herself anyway. Athoroughgoing educational campaign including civiceducation will be absoluetly necessary.Personally I would welcome the idea of your cominghere. It is difficult for one man to do much, but it willhelp. You will find many who will cooperate with youwillingly and gladly in the field of educational and social reform. Your advice and encouragement will help.My general impression is that there are few men inJapan now (among Americans) who are working seriously and earnestly. We need more and better men.Patience and understanding are essential. I am not wellacquainted with the policies and method of CI & E (CivilInformation and Education) section and there may becases where civilians like you may disagree with certainArmy methods, but I am sure there is some leeway.Food and clothing are badly needed. I would like tosee begun schools for youth in particular for instructionin democracy and Christian living. I am afraid that unless something is done soon to direct their thoughts muchharm will be done. The proper education of youth isparamount. Added to this I would like to see an institute of advanced studies established. Such an institutewould be free and independent of government and otherinfluences and would be devoted to sound research andsearch for truth.Isamugalleries of Goodspeed Hall where students may becomeintimately acquainted with them.There is much to be said for the small exhibition wherepaintings may be studied under the most favorable conditions for quiet, undistracted consideration with aneconomy of time and energy. All exhibitions are free toboth the students and the public.Since the Renaissance Society is not underwritten bythe University, these exhibitions are made possible bythe dues and gifts from its members and friends.Membership is open to all people interested in the arts.The society is now attempting to increase -this membership from 350 to 500 to guarantee the continuation ofits work and the high quality of its exhibitions.RENAISSANCE SOCIETYONE MANS OPINION>^^— —- -I-, - i n i i- - - — ¦- -- • By WILLIAM V. MORGENSTERN, '20, J.D. '22This is the time of year when the Alumni Foundationreminds the alumni that the University needs their moneyand the endorsement which their money signifies. TheUniversity is always asking for money, though it asks it°f the alumni only once a year, at a definitely stated andlimited time. But the University is always asking formoney from some one — industry, foundations, government, and individuals. The case it makes is based onhard fact; on what it can do with the money. There isflo sentiment in it when a big corporation or a foundationgives the University money. For that matter, there wasvery little sentiment in it when John D. Rockefeller gavemoney to William Rainey Harper. Mr. RockefellerPoured out the money because Dr. Harper was able toc°nvince him what could be done with it.The relationship between the alumni and the Uni-versity is closer than with others, but even so the AlumniFoundation does not rest the case on sentiment. The samespecific and extensive proof cannot be made to the alumnias to a corporation or to a foundation which has expertsto determine what the merit of an undertaking is. Thereare 50,000 alumni, and to prove in detail to each of themwhy they should give would be impossible. The alumni"ave their own problems ; they cannot make an exhaustivestudy, and they generally are not experts. So the Foundation has to rely on the Bulletin, The State of theUniversity, and, for the group which needs it least — TheUniversity of Chicago Magazine — to interpret and report0n the University. Alumni have one advantage over allother classes of donors, however, in that they had directc°ntact with the University, and whatever their time, canProject their experience and understanding in estimates the value of the University.% its very nature the University always has to askfor money. It is no.t in business for profit. It was created by gifts, and it has been sustained by gifts, so thatlt can engage in education and research. If these twoactivities had to pay their own way, education, even nowWlth altogether too disproportionate a relationship between economic status and opportunity, would be tooexpensive, and research would be so directly concernedWlth commercial applications that its existence in thediversity would have no justification.because of what it did with the atomic bomb, the Uni-versity is now regarded by a lot of people, who thoughtbadly of it because it could not support a football team,as quite a place. Yet the contributions to the atomic°°mb do not represent the best, but only the most dramatic, effort of the University. It is the old story thatwhat pays off best is not the immediately practical. WhatPtys off, in the shape of a bomb, or a cure for cancer, oranV of the other final symbols of success, is a DempsterWorrying about isotopes, a Schein chasing cosmic rays, or a Huggins experimenting with hormones. What pays offis the free spirit of intellectual curiosity.If it had been suggested to the War Department in1930 that it use some of its appropriation to support workon isotopes the secretaries and generals justifiably wouldhave thought the suggestion silly. Even in the war dayswhen the word "cyclotron" could not be mentioned, Dr.Schein was told to go right ahead and send his clustersof balloons into the stratosphere. But after Hiroshima,Dr. Schein, guided by what he had learned with his balloons — which originally had been designed for SallyRand's "bubble dance" — went down to Schenectady andborrowed G-E's big betatron to produce the first artificialmesons, which are components of the cosmic rays. Thenit suddenly developed that he had something that mightbe very closely related to the problems of the Metallurgical Laboratory, and probably should have been included in security all the time.What is true in research is equally true in education.The University is the best judge of what ought to be donein education and what the best means of doing it are.The University started out experimenting with improvements in education and it is still doing so, as its presentCollege demonstrates. The College is one of the veryfew organizations in the country that has done anythingeffective in producing and administering a general education. It already has exerted an increasing influenceelsewhere, even in institutions that were scornful whenit started; it is regarded hopefully by many teacherswhose own institutions have not yet found the determination to look squarely at what they are doing.On its record^ the University has a right to ask thecountry to support it. On its record, it is the one qualifiedjudge to decide what activities it will conduct with themoney it is given, so that it can continue to be a university. In the immediate future it probably will be relatively easy to get money to exploit the possibilities ofnuclear energy. For other fields, such as the humanities,it will be harder to get the money. The humanities didnot create the atomic bomb; but they may be needed toprovide the answer to what to do with it now that it ishere. If Mr. Hutchins is correct in his assertion thatthe great problems of the world are moral and spiritual,the humanities must provide the answer. They can attempt to do so only if they are kept alive in the universities, not in a straggling state of existence, but as flourishingparts of it. In a judgment of the relation of the parts tothe whole, the University's judgment obviously is theexpert one.The University not only needs money now, as it hasever since 1891, but it needs it more imperatively now,because this is a critical and decisive period for it andthe other independently supported educational institutions. What the University means to the country was910 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEbest stated by Mr. Hutchins in the speech, "The University," which was sent to all alumni late last year.The state universities generally are getting, and will getfrom their legislatures, the money they need for buildings and for staff. Unless the independent universitiescan get the money they need, they will lose ground, notin size, which is of little importance, but in their abilityto sustain their activities, which is of great importance.So when the University asks for money it is really askingthe fundamental question whether its existence in itspresent role is essential. There is no sentiment in that question. It requires a decision on values, a determination of the need of free, independent, and critical thoughtand action in our national life. It is a decision as towhether the country can afford to get along withoutthe University.The alumni are among the comparatively few peoplein the population who have the perspective and the equipment to make decisions of this kind. They have experienced what the University does, they know what it represents, and they have the continuing association thatestablishes a share in its achievement.In moving some things in my office I found the enclosed picture.The date on the back of the picture is October 4, 1913, which if you are good atarithmetic figures thirty-three years ago, so I don't recall all the circumstances. However, I do remember that this picture was given me by some newspaper man and thatit was taken on the occasion of the completion and dedication of the West Standon the Athletic Field.The Football Field at that time ran North and South and the speakers shown inthe photograph are seated on a low platform on the Field) in front of the Stand —Mr. Stagg spoke for the Athletic Department, Mr. Judson for the University and Ifor the Alumni.You will see that Mr. Judson is decorated with a Maroon Ribbon and I am wearinga tag which bears the lettering "Stagg Day", so that I suppose those tags were distributed and worn generally. I suppose that the picture on the tag is one of Mr. Staggbut I can't make that out clearly.Sincerely yours,William Scott Bond, '97CLYDEClyde W. Votaw, Ph.D. "96, ProfessorEmeritus of New Testament Literature,passed away at his home in Pasadena,March 24. Just one week later Mrs.Votaw, his companion through life,joined him in death. ,When I came to the University of Chicago for thefirst time as a graduate student in the summer of 1927,Professor Votaw was serving as the departmental counsellor. My first official contact with the University, therefore, took place in his office. He cheerfully gave metime and interest as I struggled to find my way throughthe labyrinth that lead to the Ph.D. degree.Later on I came to know him as the senior member ofthe faculty in New Testament. I studied under him thehistory of New Testament Interpretation, a course thatmany alumni of the department will remember withgratitude. In this and in other courses, I became acquainted with his thorough learning, evidenced by hisarticle on the Sermon on the Mount in Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible. In the field of Gospel origins, hewon distinction as a forerunner of the Form-Historyschool of interpretation through his study of the Gospelas a literary form. His monograph on "Early Christianityas an Idealistic Social Movement" is still cited as aclassical study in religio-social history.He had come to the University at its very opening in1892. He received the A.B. degree at Amherst Collegein 1888; and the Bachelor of Divinity degree at Yale in1891. In the same year he was given the Master of Artsdegree at Amherst. His Doctor of Philosophy degreewas earned at Chicago in 1896. In fact his was the firstNew Testament Ph.D. awarded by the University. Histhesis on "The Use of the Infinitive in Biblical Greek"continues to have bibliographical citation and studentuse. . VOTAWBut even before he achieved his doctorate, he was already a member our our staff. He was one of the promising young men brought by President Harper, himselffrom Yale, to teach in the new University of Chicago.Thereafter for thirty-seven years he served the Universitywith singular faithfulness as a highly efficient teacher.He went through the academic grades in New Testamentin this University — as instructor 1892-1900, assistant professor 1900-07, associate professor 1907-17, and professor1917-29. He became professor emeritus in 1929, at whichtime he and Mrs. Votaw went to Pasadena to live.He revisited the campus ten years later when I wasDean of the Divinity School. We invited the New Testament staff, and students, and Dean Emeritus ShailerMathews to meet with him in our home. For severalhours he and Shailer informed and entertained theyounger generation with reminiscenes and anecdotes outof a past that seemed already remote to us. ProfessorVotaw on this occasion expressed keen interest in all theactivities of the department and seemed to enjoy this post-retirement visit. To many of us who had been his students, the confidence he expressed in the continuing workof the department and field in which he had labored solong was a venerable benediction.During his retirement professor Votaw maintained alively correspondence with his departmental colleagues.These letters were written in his incomparably neat anderect vertical script which continued erect and unshakento his very last letter. Thus informally he disclosed vividand varied facets of his personality which even his mostadmiring friends had not earlier suspected.When the European War broke, but before the UnitedStates got into it, he wrote: 'Your thoughts perhaps turnto the tremendously difficult and distressing conditionsunder which the English and German universities arenow 'carrying on.' During the war of 1914-18, when Iwas in active service at the University, the Europeanhatred, cruelty, and devastation seemed — from a rationaland humanitarian viewpoint — intolerable, insane, incredible. My faith in civilization and mankind wasshaken. Now we have more savagery to endure and toexplain. And if our country were in Europe, I have nodoubt we would be at war against Hitler's Germany. I,for one, am sorry I counted for nothing in the war of1914-18, and again am counting for nothing in this evenmore important defense of civilizaton."When World War II was in its last year ProfessorVotaw commented thus on an exhibition catalog devotedto The Arts of the United Nations: "The Art Institutehas made it possible to see in one beautiful collection representative paintings and sculptures of the 37 United Nations; and so these nations can come to know each otherbetter and cooperate toward greater ends. It is fine thiskind of activity can go on alongside the sweeping andintense military activity that consumes the world of men."1112 THE UNIVERSITY OFBefore the war was over Professor Votaw becamegreatly concerned about post-war leadership in worldaffairs. Here, as ever, he was a perfectionst : "The worldneeds better leaders, idealists instead of materialists. Howare they to be found, and inaugurated, and followed? Weare all concerned with world affairs, and eager to seeideals prevail. We who are inspired by the leaders of theNew Testament period feel dissatisfied with materialisticleaders. I write as a New Testament idealist to anotherof like mind and pursuit."Both personal and University interest attaches to Professor Votaw's evaluation of a colleague in the Depart'ment of Oriental Languages and Literatures. He spokeof him intimately, using the first person plural: "Wewere almost the same age (I reached 80 last February).I greatly admired and appreciated Willett through ourlong University of Chicago career. On several occasionswe worked closely together. He was the right kind ofIt's hard to realize that it ^^^was nine years ago we acted ^£& "' ¦ 'as — what is misleadingly called £[**— best man at the BondChapel wedding of Jay (Bar- ^a^^ney) Kleinschmidt, '35, andMercedes (her last name slipsour mind but it's of minor im- Jkportance since she changed itthat day) . It was the culmination of a romance that began ^in high school at Maywood.Barney, a clarinetist in the ^ai Barneyband, was determined to advance to drum major in thosedays when we had had something to say as to who wouldbe drum major. We would have given ten to one oddsthat Barney wouldn't make it when he announced hisintentions. But that^was before we really knew Barneyand his determined set of the jaw.Twirling a baton didn't come easily for him but hewon and proved to foe the most enthusiastic, dependableleader of the football band. Barney's other obsession wasdramatics and he'd take any part to be in the studentshows. It was a delight to watch him set his sights andnever take his eye off the target.As the young married couple climbed into their roadster outside of Bond they announced they were headingfor Broadway. This time we offered no odds but wecrossed our fingers as they headed for the crudest streetin America. CHICAGO MAGAZINEscholarly popularizer and was a great leader in hisdenomination."Of local civic interest is a hearty appreciation ofChicago culture by Professor Votaw. It was evokedby some strictures published by "Kit" Morley under thetitle, Old Loopy. "During my thirty-seven years in Chicago I did not worry about what New York literatithought of the Chicago culture. I supposed it was nomatch for theirs and did not assume to be. But I thoughtof Chicago culture as having quality and aspiration, andgrowing up to be first class." •The last two sentences in his very last letter read:"We hope that the New Testament field keeps active.Is the volume by the Chicago Society for Biblical Research making good progress?" After seventeen years ofretirement the keenest interest of his mind was in theteaching and research which had occuped completelyhis scholarly career.— President Ernest Cadman- Calwell, PhD. '30.Sure enough, Jay Barney (stage name) has been listedin the cast of nine Broadway successes ; numerous summerplayhouses; and many radio dramas including March ofTime and Theatre Guild. In recent years we lost trackof Barney as he worked his way to a Majority in UncleSam's Signal Corps. Then on April 6 came a letter:"Just a short note to congratulate you on the new job.I've been meaning to write for some time but in the pastfive year-s I've been up to my neck (and sometimes overmy head) in producing and directing training films forthe Army. We've worked on everything from 120 mmAA guns, down through all sorts of radar to the atombomb. I'm wearing kind of thin at this point and it maybe that my 30 April separation date will not be a momenttoo soon."Mercedes and I were talking things over just the otherday and both hoped that everything you undertookturned out' as well as did your being best man at ourwedding."I'm working at reconversion like mad. Doing all theradio shows I can, appearing in legitimate stage showsat night, and finishing up my Army work during the day.Feel a little like Rip Van Winkle coming back to the stageafter a five year sojourn but folks have been very nice andI'm considerably encouraged by the reception."Last time I saw you was in 1938 when I visited Chicago with the cast of On Borrowed Time. I hope to seeyou again before too long under similar circumstances."— H. W. M.FROM DRUM MAJOR TO BROADWAYNEWS OF THE QUADRANGLES• By JEANNETTE LOWREYThree Men in a JeepFar away from the Quadrangles — in Tokyo — the University of Chicago "meeting of the month" took place.Occasioned by the fact that eight of the 28-memberCommission on Education, appointed by General DouglasMacArthur to study Japanese schools, had University ofChicago affiliations, the Tokyo meeting was the firstalumni gathering in Japan since Pearl Harbor.It was called by Habuka Kodama, '25, and attended bysix of the visiting educators, 30 Japanese alumni, and twosoldiers and a sailor. Hearing of the meeting in a remotepart of Tokyo, the latter three, Stanley A. Durka, '47,William Friend, '43, and Robb Thomson, '44, commandeered a jeep to transport them to the conclave atJapan's Women's University.The guests of honor frqm the commission were : Lt.Col. T. V. Smith, Ph.D. '22, Professor of Philosophy onleave; Leon Carnovsky, Ph.D. '32, Associate Dean ofthe Graduate Library School; David H. Stevens, Ph.D.'14, Director of Humanities of Rockefeller Foundationand former Professor of English at the University; FrankN. Freeman, Dean of the Education Department, University of California, and formerly a staff member at theUniversity; and two alumni members, Charles Johnson,and Kermit Eby.The two other University alumni members on Mac-Arthur's commission were Mrs. Mildred McAfee Horton,A.M. '28, President of Wellesley College, and George S.Counts, Ph.D. '16, Professor of Education, ColumbiaUniversity.Speaking before the University of Chicago assembly,Riichiro Hoashi, '16, Ph.D. '17, said, "Reform in education is most essential and fundamental for the democratization of Japanese life. I have long said, though itwas tabooed during the war, that education and armament are adverse to each other and cannot stand togetherunder the same sky. If education is allowed to prevailover militarism, men and women can live in harmonythrough their own conscience, independent thinking, andinner conviction."Now back on the Midway, Prof. Carnovsky reports thatthere has been a great deal of destruction of Japaneseschools, and that the remaining buildings are overcrowded—with the pupils of three schools sometimes crowded intoone building."Besides being overcrowded, the schools are cold," hestates. "All the school radiators were removed for warmaterials, and even for the smallest children, who areuncomfortable and cold, there is not'much hope for immediate relief."The Japanese children impressed us with their seriousness. Even in the first six years of school, they are notof the easy-going American calibre. A discipline problem13 Professor Carnovsky is "processed" through the ATC Portof Aerial Embarkation by Captain L. D. Riggins, en routeto Japan.simply does not exist for their instructors."Numerous changes have been introduced into theeducational system, partly as a result of the civilian committee's suggestions, and partly on the advice of the U. S.military forces," Carnovsky reports. "Most changes havebeen by way of elimination. For instance, the Japanesecourse in morals or civics had been developed around theconcept of ultra-nationalism, justifying any act contributed to the aggrandizement of the state. The course wascompletely shot through with nationalism and militarismand had to be done away with. History courses, basedlargely on the concept of the divinity of the emperor, hadto be re-vamped, for the texts had been severely restrictedand were inaccurate."Four Scientists HonoredFour University of Chicago professors, including twomembers of the University's new Institute of NuclearStudies, were elected to membership in the NationalAcademy of Sciences.Their election to the academy, whose membership ismade up of eminent scientists, brings the total number ofUniversity of Chicago members to 26.The four new resident members are: Samuel K. Allison, '20, Ph.D. '23, Director of the Institute of Nuclear14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEStudies and Professor of Physics; Dr. Paul Roberts Cannon, Ph.D. '21, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pathology; Dr. Morris S. Kharasch, '17, Ph.D.'19, Professor of Chemistry; and Joseph E. Mayer, Professor of Chemistry and staff member of the Institute ofNuclear Studies.Dr. Allison was one of the men in charge of the firstatomic bomb explosion experiments at Alamogordo, NewMexico. He was recently cited by President Harry S.Truman for meritorious work as director of the Metallurgical Laboratory of the University of Chicago and forhis work at Los Alamos, which led to the successful production of the atomic bomb. (See April issue.)Dr. Cannon, a pathologist with extensive training inbacteriology, is well-known for his pathological studies ofimmunity as the background to infectious disease and forhis studies in nutrition. During the war, he was on the relation of nutrition to acquired immunity,especially in protein pathology.Dr. Kharasch, noted organic chemist at the University,has produced a succession of discoveries in both theoretical and practical chemistry. On the practical side, hedeveloped merthiolate, a standard general antiseptic, perfected a treatment for grain affected by smut, and isolated and prepared in pure form the drug ergotocin usedin childbirth. While serving with the Chemical WarfareService of the United States, Dr. Kharasch developed 300of the 1,500 proposed chemical warfare compounds examined and evaluated in the Toxicity Laboratory on theMidway campus.Dr. Mayer, who came to the Institute of NuclearStudies when it was established last August, is a formerProfessor of Chemistry at Columbia University. He wasassociated with the SAM division of the ManhattanProject.Vision of the EndEducation today must aim to transform the minds andhearts of men or it's completely irrelevant — literally child'splay, Chancellor Robert M. Hutchins declared in the seventh lecture in the University Works of the Minds series."Education is almost our only hope to save civilization,and the task is so urgent that the triviality and frivolity ofAmerican education and the petty and selfish concerns ofits leaders are blasphemous as well as suicidal."Speaking on "The Administrator," he declared that themeasure of a university administrator can be made onlyin the light of some rational view of the end of the universities."The administrator's decisions are right or wrong asthey help or hinder the institution in its efforts to achievethe end."We know that the world may at any moment burstinto flames," he said. "We know that we can hope tosave ourselves only by the most tremendous and well-directed efforts. Bewildered and tortured humanity shouldbe able to look in this crisis to those institutions createdto elevate the minds and hearts of men, to symbolizetheir highest powers and aspirations. "To say of a university now that its object is to main,tain itself or to preserve accepted values and institutionsis to deny the responsibility imposed by the communityon those privileged persons whom it has set apart tothink on its behalf, to criticize its ways, and to raise it toits highest possible moral and intellectual level."We can take one of two positions about education today. Either it aims to transform the minds and heartsof men, or it is completely irrelevant."We know that agreements to control uranium deposits, to permit inspection of atomic power plants andfactories, to disarm, and even the solemn agreement whichis the charter of the United Nations itself can last onlyso long as each of the participating members wants themto last. We know that a world government can ariseonly if the peoples of the world want it, and can endureonly as there is a world community to support it. Theprospects of a world civil war are not attractive."We must have international agreements. We mustwork toward world governments. But the significance ofthese agreements and of all efforts to frame a world constitution and get it adopted lies largely in the fact thatall discussion of world unification may promote thecommunity upon which such unification must rest. Suchunification ultimately rests on the transformation of theminds and hearts of men."If we must abolish war or perish, and if war can beabolished only by this transformation, then the aim ofeducationalo institutions is to bring about this transformation."The minimum function of the administrators is ordering the means to accomplish the ends and the qualifications for the minimum function are courage, fortitude,justice, and practical wisdom, Mr. Hutchins said. Theadministrator derives his value from his ability to see theenterprise as a whole; since his primary responsibility isto raise questions about ends, the administrator whoadministrates is bound to cause trouble."In a university, for example, the curriculum is ameans to the end of the institution. It is- not ordinarilycommitted to the care of the administrator ; he has notthe authority to determine what the course of study shallbe. Nobody else has quite the opportunity which theadministrator has to see the whole of the curriculum andthe interrelations of the parts."The administrator must then try to induce those towhose care the curriculum has been committed to facethe problems it raises as persistently, as seriously, and asimpartially as possible. In this connection, too, theadministrator must be the trouble-maker; for every changein education is a change in the habits of some membersof the faculty."Going, Going, GoneThe ink on last month's University of Chicago Magazine was scarcely dry on Registrar Ernest C. Miller's predictions that spring registration would reach an all-University high when the mark was set.Nine thousand one hundred and thirty-four students,THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 15including 2,680 veterans, were registered at the close ofthe third week of the quarter. This number tops by 619the University's former peak registration — 8,515 in thefall of 1929.Only in the graduate library school do women outnumber the men. There the ratio is two to one. Mentake their pre-war lead of three to two in the Universityas a whole.Quadrangle ConversionConversion of the Quadrangle Club into a generalfacility for members of the faculty and administration hasthe approval of the board of trustees of the University ifthe club members request such a step, Vice-president Wilbur C. Munnecke announced this month.The proposal, which originated with joint discussionsbetween Dr. Paul C. Hodges, retiring club president, andmembers of the University committee on instruction andresearch, will be submitted shortly to club members fora decision.¦ If the plan is approved by members, the assets of theclub, which is privately incorporated, will be turned overto the University. The Quadrangle Club will be continued as the name for the organization, but the University will assume responsibility for physical maintenanceand food service.The plan also calls for the University to build 100,000cubic feet, to give additional kitchen and dining roomservice and more committee room space, which is necessitated by the increase in the faculty since the presentbuilding was constructed in 1922.On CampusTwo visiting professors, both of international fame andboth visiting the campus for the second time, are teaching in the spring quarter of the University. They areArnold Schoenberg, one of the world's most eminent composers and musical theorists, and Friederich A. Hayek,British economist and author of Road to Serfdom, University of Chicago Press publication.Schoenberg, who is the Alexander White visiting professor, has been lecturing and conferring with studentsin the music department and in the introductory humanities course in the College. Primarily known for his formulation and development of the twelve tone system ofmusical composition, Schoenberg was first on the Midwayin 1934. In the fall of 1944, a Composers Concert wasplanned in honor of his 70th birthday, but he was unable to attend because of illness. He is the second eminent musician to hold the visiting professorship duringthe year. Artur Schnabel was here in October to present 12 lecture discussions.Hayek is teaching two courses in the Department ofEconomics during the first half of the spring term. Hiscourses are "Positivism in Natural and Social Sciences inthe 18th Century" and "Economic Institutions and theState." Hayek visited the quadrangles last year when hisbook was brought out by the University Press. Mr. Hogness Goes to WashingtonThere's a story about a University of Chicago professor who went to Washington that bears repeating. AChicago Sun reporter called the tale the most fascinatingto come out of the nation's capital in a long, long time.It concerns Thorfin R. Hogness, Professor of Chemistry,who served during the war as a liaison officer betweenEngland and the United States on the atomic bomb andas director of the Metallurgical Project's chemical division.Hogness, the correspondent wrote, effected the compromise which the special senate committee on atomicenergy worked out in the matter of civilian versus military control.In favor of civilian control, he went to Washingtonafter the committee had adopted 10 to 1 Senator ArthurJ. Vandenberg's amendment to allow the President toname a military committee, which would report to himdirectly and have the right to review all action takenby the civilian commission.In Washington, he made an appointment wuh Generalof the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, and in their talklearned that the army chief of staff favored civilian control of atomic energy, but wanted assurance there wouldbe some sort of liaison with the military. This was theview Hogness and most of his science colleagues held.His next interview was with Senator Vandenberg,whom he told about his talk with Eisenhower. Vandenberg said the question was really a matter of language inhis amendment, and he would act to straighten it out.Thereupon, Vandenberg, with the assistance of Hogness, drafted a new amendment, which the committeeunanimously adopted. It defined the rights of the military and limited them to just what Eisenhower wanted —an effective liaison between the military and the civilian.The Sun said, "It was the result of one man — ThorfinR. Hogness."Mr. Hogness working in his shop16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINETuition Moves UpAs a partial offset to the rising levels of operating costat the University, increases in student fees, ranging from1J/2 to 7 y2 percent in the main areas of registration, willbe effective for the summer quarter.In the College, divisions, and all professional schoolsexcept law and medicine, the charge, which absorbs allincidental fees, will be increased from $130 to $140 aquarter for a normal program of study. Since three quarters constitute the usual academic year, "the annual increase over present rates is $30, or 7.69 percent.Law school tuition will be increased from $157.50 to$160 a quarter, or 1.59 percent, and the quarterly chargein the medical school will be increased from $185 to $195,5.41 percent. In University College, charges at the College level will be $37.50 instead of $35.00 for one course,and $70 instead of $65 for two courses. The amount ofincrease at the divisional level will be from $45 to $47.50for one course and from $85 to $90 for two. The University College Executive Program for business executives willbe increased from $100 to $125 per quarter. A new schedule of fees also has been adopted for the UniversityLaboratory Schools.For One WorldSeven of the 15 men of science whose contributionsmake up One World or None worked on the atomic bombat the Metallurgical Laboratory of the University. Harold C. Urey, Nobel-prize chemist and staff member ofthe Institute of Nuclear Studies, wrote the seventh chapter, "There Is No Defense."Alphabetically listed, the other contributors from thelab are: Arthur Holly Compton, Nobel-prize physicistwho resigned as Dean of the University's Division ofPhysical Sciences to become Chancellor of WashingtonUniversity; Philip Morrison, Assistant Professor of Physics at Cornell University; Frederick Seitz, head of thePhysics Department at Carnegie Institute of Technology;Leo Szilard, still with the project; Eugene T. Wigner,Professor of Physics at Princeton; and Gale Young, withthe project at Oak Ridge, Tennessee.Peoples Speaking to PeoplesWith the oceans the "back fences" of a world community in which all men are neighbors, the tools of communication must be used boldly and constructively tolink mankind harmoniously.This is the theme of Peoples Speaking to Peoples —the first report of the Freedom of the Press Commission,established last year at the University by ChancellorHutchins under a Time, Inc. grant. The authors of thestudy, both authorities in their fields, are Robert D. Leigh,political scientist, and Llewellyn White, Newsman."Science," they reported, "not only unlocked the secretof atomic power, but has given a timely clue to thesecret of survival. Modern airplanes and wireless transmission of facsimile have made of literature publishedanywhere in the world a potential instrument of globalunderstanding." In the 128 page report, published by the University ofChicago Press, they show how a world-wide informedpublic opinion can be reached through the field of international mass communications.What is needed in the field of international communications, they declare, is the linking of all habitable partsof the globe with abundant, cheap, significant, true information about the world from day to day. They callfor full cooperation between private enterprise, nationalgovernments, diplomacy and the machinery of the UnitedNations Organization to accomplish it.They scrutinize, in very readable form, the existingforms of communication— the press associations, the radio,moving pictures, and books. They propose free flow ofnews, the establishment of a professional foreign correspondent's corps with a strict, self- administered code ofethics, and an improved quality of information."Freedom of the press is peculiarly the child of confidence, security and stability," they report. "The need isnow, the time is now, and the hour is late."Etc.Three University professors, Dr.. William H. Taliaferro,Harry A. Millis, and William Ogburn, received honorarydoctor's degrees from the University of North Carolinain the university's sesquicentennial celebration. Dr. Taliaferro, Chairman of the Department of Bacteriology andParasitology, was granted an honorary Doctor of Sciencedegree; Millis, Professor Emeritus of Economics, andOgburn, Chairman of the Department of Sociology, honorary Doctor of Law degrees. ...Laird Bell, vice-chairman of the Board of Trustees ofthe University and Chicago attorney, has been electedpresident of the Harvard Alumni Association. . . .
