His subjectwas "The Basis of Japan's Foreign Policy." With tension growing betweenthe two countries, he said and believed, "There are no questions between the two countries that can notbe settled peacefully."A classmate and close friend ofJiuji Kasai, Harry O. Rosenberg, '13,JD '15, has just sent us a copy of apersonal letter received from Tokyowhich he has given us permission toprint.The EditorsJiuji KasaiTokyo, September 2, 1946.My dear Harry:1 am very happy to greet you aftera lapse of five years in which a terrible war interrupted Japan's ancientfriendship with the United States.Since my return home on November15, 1941, from America, I fought forthe cause of peace with America, butTojo and ambitious militarists ranamok and ruined our country.As you know, I have always beena fife-long fighter for the cause ofpeace and friendship with your country. So, when I returned from America on November 15th, 1941, I sawForeign Minister Tojo that night andPrime Minister Tojo next morning,and told them never to fight againstthe United States. During the threeweeks preceding the Pearl Harborattack, I made trips throughout thecountry, making speeches and appealing to the people not to fight againstthe United States. The result was I was imprisoned by Gendarmeries —military police — as if I were an"American spy," and I was persecuted. Whatever persecutions I endured, my convictions never changed.Unfortunately, the war broke outwith our militarists' attack on PearlHarbor. Their surveillance on us whohad relations with the United Stateswas exceedingly stringent, but I neverchanged my convictions. So, when theParliamentary Election of April,1942, came, the Tojo governmentbranded me as "America's spy," andthe police forces spread a whisperingcampaign against me, and defeatedme in the election and imprisoned allthe officers of my election office. During the four years of the war, I hadterrible times, pestered by police andgendarmeries. But, I thank God, Ikept myself throughout the war trueto my convictions.General MacArthur's Army of Occupation landed just a year ago today. Japan for the first time came toknow what America and the American people are. The Japanese peoplecame to know that what I had beenpreaching these 30 years was true andthat the American people are trulythe lovers of peace and humanity. Today, our people are appreciative ofGeneral MacArthur's enlightenedpolicy and America's generosity.Our people had to learn that theyhad been misled by the militarists andmisguided by Hitler and his henchmen. But, it is too late. Our countrywas completely ruined. More than125 cities were devastated anddestroyed. The entire country is inruins, and an old civilization has beendestroyed. My house was located inthe Capital Hill behind the ImperialPalace, and as it was so near thePalace, and adjoining the BelgianEmbassy, I thought it would be saved.Thus, I did not evacuate my belongings as other citizens did.But, the air-raid of May 26, 1945,was the most terrific and terrible attack in Tokyo, and my house with allthe properties and belongings wereburned. Thus, your photograph inyour uniform which I framed andplaced in my big library, togetherwith all my Lincoln collections weredestroyed, as was my house with allits furniture and many precious andpriceless things. While thousands andthousands of citizens of Tokyo alone,were killed and burned to death,fortunately I am safe and none of myimmediate kinsmen were killed. Ibought a house just before the armistice, and am well.In the last Parliamentary Electionof April, my wife and I ran as Candidates.

These youngsters, to getwhere they are, finagled their way past the forbiddingentrance examiner with yawning maw and forbidding, outstretched wings.The pop-eyed freshman, having successfully escaped thefangs of entrance examinations, stares surprised and wide-mouthed, while the sophomore, just ahead, has forgottenhis experiences to concentrate on his objective. The junior,arriving at the base of the pinnacle, pauses to shout backhis objections at being crowded when it's obvious he cango no farther until the self-satisfied senior sees fit to climboff his throne and cease his survey of the one hundred tenacres he thinks he has conquered.THE WORM IN THE ROSE• MELVIN L GRIFFITH, '19, JD '20Jimmy Durante would quip: "Everyone wants to get intothe act." — another way of saying everyone has his curefor the atomic age. Many such cures have crossed ourdesks but if remained for attorney Griffith to startle uswith his thesis that "personal salvation" jeopardizes worldpeace. We think his point merits consideration. The Editors.THINKERS, leaders of thought, informed menand women everywhere, today, face the futurewith great misgiving, if not in fear that often borders on panic. The masses of the people are restless,uneasy, in the grip of vague forebodings of some newand frightful world catastrophe. Rulers, statesmen, politicians, make frantic attempts to restore peace and worldorder with little apparent hope that anything they accomplish in the furtherance of these ends will be ofmore than temporary endurance.The fear, the misgivings, the vague forebodings springfrom lack of faith, lack of belief in the existence of anyforce, human or divine, that will prevent another globalwar, and in particular, that will control the use of nuclearenergy in the interest of mankind.The pillar of cloudThe absence of such faith, such belief, is demonstratedby what thoughtful men saw in the pillar of cloud andfire at Hiroshimo and Nagasaki. The most startling result of the actual wartime use of the Atomic bomb wasto reveal to man the uncertain, untrustworthy nature ofthe foundations upon which he had built his civilization.His eyes were opened by the threat of its power, andhe saw the proud structure, of which he had boasted solong and in such confidence, disintegrate into a chaoticmass of twisted timbers, blackened by selfishness, greed,hate, and lust for power.Can he put a new foundation under it, reconditionit, rebuild it, restore it to something at least akin towhat he once believed it to be? Or must he stand helpless and await some mad moment in which even thestark remains of it will be destroyed?Two addresses reproduced in the issue of The Magazine for November — December, 1945, show the trendof thought on the subject; one by Professor William F.Ogburn, Chairman of the Department of Sociology, entitled: "A More Useful Social Science"; the other byJoseph A. Brandt, then Director of the University Press,entitled: "The Disciplined Scholar in an UndisciplinedWorld."Professor Ogburn, assuming a defensive position, sawtwo major social problems growing out of the release ofatomic energy:(a) That of producing a lasting agreement among nations notto use the atomic bomb.(b) That of breaking up our cities into smaller places lessvulnerable. He believes that an international agreement mightnot be too difficult to obtain. "The much greater task,"he said, "is to make such an agreement endure." Hislack of faith is inherent in the sentence :The danger is that after getting such an agreement, if we do,we may then rest in a false security.This great Scholar's choice was between doubtful control of the bomb by agreement and dispersing urbanpopulations to get away from its destructive power.Brandt would take the offensive and he is more specific. But he, too, has fears and lacks faith:Unafraid as we were to face the test of battle, we turn oncemore with fear and misgivings to the task of governing ourselves, that we and our neighbors may live in harmony. * * *And so low is national and international morality today, so fearful are we of ourselves as a people capable of disciplining ourselves, that we resurrect the formula of the ill-starred Holy Alliance of the last century as the one sure guarantee of peace in ourtime.He puts the blame for these conditions on the scholarand in doing so says:Instead of wisdom, charity and tolerance which the scholarshould have implanted in the people, the morning after victoryfinds among us growing tensions, increasing and dangerous mounting hatreds.He sums it up dramatically:A world is aflame with doubt, terror, hatred; that flame canonly be quenched by the scholar writing in the loneliness of hisstudy, but writing with a passion for the right, for the welfareof the people of whom he is at present one of the most ignored,but among whom he may ultimately rank without a peer.Phaethon, not Phoebus, has been driving the chariotof civilization. The Scholar is to be cast in the roleof Jove. But what shall he use for thunderbolts? Brandtdoes not tell us. What he says, however, is supplemented,somewhat, by Professor Ogburn when he tells us aboutnecessary research as to particular problems by the socialscientists :For the Social Scientist to do the desired research, there is required money, time, our research ability. Often it takes morehard work and a longer time to solve a social problem caused byan invention than it did to make the invention. Yet the publicdoes not realize this. They seem to expect quick answers. Andthey get them, such as they are, from lectures, radio commentators, preachers, editorial writers. But what do these ready answers say? Regarding divorce that husbands and wives shouldlove each other, be more tolerant and not go to the divorce court;regarding crime that we must inflict stern punishment on criminals or treat them as sick persons; and regarding nuclear energythat we must not use the atomic bomb. But such answers do notmean much. We need implementation to such good advice,which comes from research.What shall the scholar write about and what shall thesocial scientist look for in his research? In the answerto these questions lies whatever hope is left that thestructure of civilization may be re-established, so as tohouse therein enduring faith in the capacity of men tolive with one another in peace.56 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINESermons have failedNothing will be gained by continued acceptance ofancient formulas and continuous search for antidotes forthe social poisons they release. If, as Brandt says, massmurder increases with the degree of mass education, thevirus is either in what we teach, or it is inherent in theformulas by which men live. The invention of a steamengine; an automobile, or an atomic bomb creates socialproblems in divorce, crime, and destruction of cities, notbecause there is anything in a steam engine that coulddestroy love and tolerance between husband and wife,or in the mere possession of an automobile that couldlaunch its owner on a career of crime, or in an atomicbomb that could lead those who possess it to drop it uponthe urban populations of other nations, but because ofsomething in man's nature which all of his teaching,preaching, and praying have failed to eradicate. AsBrandt laments:We are a nation dedicated to the principles of Christ, but weremain Pharasaical despite countless sermons preached from ourpulpits.To the sermons may be added mountains of literatureand other means used to get these principles at the controls in the conduct of men. Two thousand years ofprodigious effort have failed. It is high time we decidedthat there is something wrong somewhere. The principlessomehow do not work. Yet the fault is not in the principles. Had they been applied in human conduct forthese two thousand years, civilization would not nowbe threatened with destruction. The fault is man's useof the principles. He has used them for the ends heseeks and not as ends in themselves.Thank God for triumphsMan has always cast his gods in roles that have suitedhis purposes. When he coveted his neighbor's lands andother possessions, his gods have been gods of robbery andvengeance and war. When he became established andcontent in possession of those properties, his gods becamegods of love and peace and moral rectitude. The difference is to be found in pursuit and possession.In the two world wars in our generation, our godswere called upon alike by the aggressors and the threatened; by those who coveted and by those who possessed.When the wars were ended, the victors set aside days fornational prayer and thanksgiving, that their arms hadtriumphed.In the world in which we live, this was a normal reaction. Every loyal and patriotic citizen or subject greetedthe end of World War II in victory for his people with athankful heart, with gratitude to returning warriors andin deep sorrow he mourned his country's heroic maimedand dead. But almost before he had had time to prayand be thankful and grateful or to mourn his casualties,his heart was in the grip of new and deeper fears thanhe had ever before experienced.Brave young men had fought and died in vain. The noble words of the so-called Atlantic Charter had beenemptied of all of their hope, all of their promise of abrave new world. The Four Freedoms had dissolvedlike the insubstantial fabric of some wistful dream. Hisworld was aflame, overnight, with unreasoning hatredsand threats of new and more diabolical terrors, the Swordof God and Gideon to the contrary notwithstanding. Hisheart is filled with fear. He is bewildered. Neither earthnor heaven offers anything upon which he may base hishope and his faith for the future. How can he pray orbe thankful any more until he can find some new rockof ages upon which to rest his faith?Needed: a new rock of ages . . .It will not be enough to teach men wisdom, charity,and tolerance. These attributes are of the very essenceof what has been taught for two thousand years.It will not be enough to set the Social Scientist at workto soften the impact upon society of every new step inindustrial progress. That would be as futile as for medical men to treat smallpox by putting salve on the skineruptions.It will not be enough to put the Scholar in his lonelystudy to write with passion for the right and welfare ofthe people. The bookshelves of the world are loadedwith such material.Man must have new and basic, eternal truths on whichto ground a new faith. He must have a new set of values, a new formula by which to live.In 1942, it appears that scientists around the worldwere on the very threshold of discovery of atomic fission.A host of the greatest of these scientists were set to workwith two billion dollars to spend in completing the discovery that it might be used as a weapon by allied arms.Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in 1945, tell the story of thesuccess of science in placing the atomic bomb, poweredby basic forces of nature, in the arsenals of the WesternAllies.. . . with the help of theologians . . .These must be a new project designed to promote thepurposes of peace. A very fitting title for that projectwould be Crossroads Project, for that is where civilization stands today. It should be both a test and a discovery, a test of old formulas and a determined effortto discover new ones.Such a project is also one for the scientist. In thatsense, it is a task for the scholar. And, as professor Ogburn says, it will require time and money and researchability. It must be organized with all the power of society behind it. The best minds in every field of sciencemust spearhead the project. They must call upon thetheologian, the religious scholar, as well as upon scholarsin all other fields. They must bring to the project thesame faith, the same zeal, the same unselfish devotion andthe same knowledge that they race against time, andopposing forces that may reach the goal ahead of them,THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 7which drove that other assembly of scientists to quickcompletion of the Manhattan project.. . . designed not to save own soulThe task must be to discover .a new formula, a newgoal, a new set of values, a new definition of life. Anew Star in the East must be made to shine out in thisdark world that will catch the enlightened imaginationof men. There must, veritably, be a new Bethlehem, anew Manger, where Wise Men from across the worldwill be proud to kneel and worship a new world saviourfrom whom man will accept a new mission, one not designed to save his own soul, but one not unlike the missions assigned to millions of heroic men in war whoproudly face death that men who live after them mayhave love and peace and happiness and freedom andliberty on this earth.Arthur H. Compton, the great physicist, many yearsago, conducted a series of experiments in which he passedan x-ray through an atom of hydrogen. He saw in thebehavior of the atom what to him was a revelation ofGod. His more recent experiences in nuclear fission confirmed the conclusions reached in his previous experiments. Such a group of scholars as above suggested,with these conclusions of Dr. Compton and the naturaltendency of enlightened men to accept the theory of apurposeful universe, would be at no greater disadvantagein carrying out such a project than those who completedthe Manhattan project on the basis of existing knowledge of the atom. The new project could begin wherethe old one ended.Imagination is aroused. The awe in which men holdthe mysterious forces of nature together with the existingchaos has already conditioned the mind. For the firsttime in two thousand years, man, so near the end ofhis faith in both his gods and himself, is ready for anew kingdom of God on earth, in which the ruling powerwould not be a divinity fashioned after his own changing moods and circumstances, but one that could represent to him eternal, unchanging truth which he couldaccept for its own sake and not for the sake of gainingfor himself eternal life.Eliminate personal salvationThus the germ of selfishness, the idea that belief willsomehow bring personal salvation, that lies at the veryheart of all religions, would be destroyed. It is thatgerm of self-interest that accounts for the futility of allteaching, preaching, and praying in all the past. Whetherthat germ is a product of nature in making self-preservation her first law, or whether we teach, preach, and prayit into man in the process of conditioning him for thegood life, is not important. It is the worm in the rose.When it is eliminated, and not until it is, can we againhope for an untroubled world. Then, only, can a people,with knowledge of cosmic secrets, be trusted to employthem in the interest of all men and not to employthem for the purpose of either controlling, enslaving, or The Griffith family: George, on inactive Navy Air Corps reservestudying law at the University of Michigan; John, on active ArmyAir Corps reserve (Major) studying aeronautical engineering atPurdue; Mrs. Griffith, an alumna of the University of Missouri; andMelvin L Griffith, associated with Edward B.

They will be charged with blastingat the rock of ages; with pulling down the pillars of thetemple; with selling their souls to the devil. Religiousracketeers will lead the smear bunds that will spring up.They will marshall the ignorant; the unsuspecting; theindifferent; the battalions of parasites that infest thevarious organizations of the Church; the armies of conservatism that fight all change; all progress.There will be inquisitions. There will be pillorys.There will be stakes without merciful flames that onceput an end to agonies. Lip denials to be recanted bythe heart will not suffice and such a recanter may nothiss the truth through his teeth in defiance of his persecutors. Escape will lie only in final victory of truth oversham. Those who enter upon the project cross the Rubicon. True conviction that the course is righteous, andcourage to see it through at whatever cost, will bringthat final victory.The temper of the world today invites able, sincere,thoughtful men to this task. As Cicero challenged Cata-line in the Roman Senate, so the voice of the multitudecries out to leadership:"When, oh leaders of men, do you mean to cease abusing ourpatience!"Patience is nearly run out. There is a cloud on thehorizon the size of a man's hand. Man knows that it isnot a beneficent cloud. It is strangely like one thatstood there not so long ago that spread havoc acrossthe world and then seemed to spend itself. After one(Concluded on Page 19)ONE MAN'S OPINIONIf winter comesTHE general outlines of the year confronting theUniversity are clear enough. It will be packedwith students, its research and scholarly activitieswill be on a normal basis again; some important newenterprises, such as the three institutes in nuclear studies,radiobiology and biophysics, and metals will be completely functioning, and the cooperative attack on cancerwill be extended with the new Nathan Goldblatt Memorial Hospital, and the Cancer Foundation of theUniversity of Chicago, giving it impetus.These developments, and the appearance of some badlyneeded new buildings, the first in many years, are allclearly forseeable. But what is still clouded, since thisjournal is written a month in advance of publication,is the nature of the annual winter Issue which inevitablyaccompanies the winter and is resolved with the balmierdays of spring.As surely as the payment of an income tax instalment,The Issue always arises in January; only the particularcause is uncertain from one year to another. This happens so regularly there is no escape from the conclusionthat it is a meteorological phenomenon.For in this latitude, winter is the season of man's discontent. The sun shines pallidly, if at all, through theclouds and smoke of Chicago, and glowering natureevokes a responsive mood of desolation in the Universitycommunity as well as in the rest of the populace. It isa time when the sweet reasonableness of the intellectuallife is worn thin and the objective attitude is at its nadir.These are the months when committee members growland glower at each other and nurse their slights. Aboveall, these are the days when the faculty decides that itsfreedom is threatened, its integrity impugned, and itshonor sullied. It is the hour for all red-blooded professors to unite to save their souls. In short, the winteris the time to expect trouble.Usually the signal for the discontent to come into theopen is the annual dinner of the Trustees to the Faculty.Occasionally, it is true, something that is said at thedinner may provide the spark to the tinder, and thisfestivity has produced some really good Issues, but moreoften the dinner is simply a chronological coincidencethat comes exactly at the psychological time. It is areminder that winter is here, and that after a Christmasvacation of marking papers and attending meetings oflearned societies, a bleak three months loom ahead.At any rate, the telephones begin to ring, the luncheonmeetings are arranged, and the banners are unfurled.Determined little groups meet at noon in the QuadrangleClub. Rumors begin to go about the quadrangles ascontact men get in touch with other departments and By WILLIAM V. MORGENSTERN, '20, J.D. '22gain recruits from here and there.There are strange alliances, such as alignments ofhumanists and scientists, and there is an opposition thatrallies from nowhere just as do the men with a cause.The symbol is always new, yet always old, for the fundamental assertion is that ruin faces the University. Itmay be, for example, the assertion of a few years agothat a philosophy is being imposed on the University.Sometimes the symbol is good enough to commandgreat devotion and effort, as was that when the rallyingcry was "imposition of philosophy," and the loving production of a document to which signatures may beaffixed. Some times The Issue does not have such greatvalue; last's year's, concerning the question of who shoulddetermine the curriculum of the College, was one whichdid not produce rallies.All this is not to indicate that the controversies aretrivial. But the mood in which they are conducted isdefinitely a product of the season, and in fact, the questions could usually be settled without much furor werethey raised, say, in May. As it is, starting in January,they reach their peak about the end of February, whenslush and raw winds and dark days promise to continueforever.Usually a couple of balmy days and a crocus or twohave a noticeably mitigating effect, but the matter is notresolved until the close of the Spring Quarter. When thedecision is made there is a general relaxation and an endto the careful scrutiny of a Club table at noon so as toavoid a member of the opposition. Summer is quiet; therush of renewing work in the autumn quarter, and thefact fall is the best season of the Chicago year, makethat a peaceful time, too. It is only in the winter thatthe storm signals fly.The new organization of the Senate may spell an endto this old custom. Last year's argument, for instance,was really only a second-rate affair compared to others.The Council of the Senate, which meets every four weekswith the members of the Central Administration, diddisapprove the action of the College in abolishing thePh.B. degree because it permitted too much specialization. And Mr. Hutchins vetoed the action of the Council,so that, under the constitution, the action was on itsway to the Trustees for adjudication. But before it gotthat far there was another meeting of the Council, andboth sides agreed to try again.Eventually, and apparently without too much wearand tear, a satisfactory solution was reached within theCouncil, so that the question never got before a townmeeting. If this is any indication of the way thingsare going to go, some substitute for a tried and trueway of enduring a Chicago winter will have to be invented for the good of the institution.8PRESS PUBLISHES 22 MAGAZINES"• By ROLLIN D. HEMENS, '21Duke secondwith eightREADERS of non-fiction, leaders in religious work, and university professors have someacquaintance with the University ofChicago Press., If the sales figures forsuch titles as The G'oodspeed NewTestament, Machinery of the Body,and The Road to Serfdom may betaken as an. index, the number runsinto the hundreds of thousands. Thosepersons generally think of the Pressas a publisher of books; a few areaware that the Press publishes magazines, but still fewer know that twenty-two magazines are issued by the Press.Eighteen of the presses which aremembers of the Association of American Presses publish seventy-six magazines. Duke holds second place witheight; Johns Hopkins is third withseven. All of these figures relate to magazines bearing a university pressimprint, which are published at regular intervals with at least four issuesper year, and have a fixed annualsubscription price.Several of the University of Chicago magazines are among the oldestpublished in this country. The Botanical Gazette for example, was foundedin 1875 by the late John M. Coulterand taken over by the University in1892; The Journal of Religion hasevolved from The Hebrew Studentfounded by William Rainey Harperin 1882; The Journal of PoliticalEconomy edited by J. LawrenceLaughlin was started in 1892, andThe Journal of Geology edited byT. C. Chamberlain in 1893.Age and distinction, however, arenot guarantees of a large subscriptionlist. The total paid subscriptions as ofDecember, 1946, was 25,750 for thetwenty magazines owned and editedby the University of Chicago. The Rollin D. HemensAssistant Director, University PressEnglish Journal and High SchoolEnglish as official organs of the National Council of Teachers of Englishare omitted from these figures. TheElementary School Journal is first onthe list with just over 6,000 subscribers; the American Journal ofSociology is second with about 3,400subscribers; and the School Reviewwith 3,100. These three magazinesaccount for approximately half of thetotal; many of the others have lessthan a thousand subscribers.The reason that the University'smagazine publishing program is solittle known and the subscription listsso small is that the magazines areedited by scholars for scholars and research workers ; none is limited to contributions from the University of Chicago faculty; contributions are accepted from scholars everywhere. Itis the subject matter which is limitedand a magazine like MathematicalBiophysics is of value only to a fewscholars working intensively in a limited field.The Astrophysical Journal is distinctive in that for all practical purposes It is a cooperative activity of thegreat observatories of the UnitedStates: Mount Wilson, Yerkes, McDonald, Lick, and the Harvard College Observatory.

SWEETIt is very hard to say anything about the retirement of Professor William Warren Sweet because it is so hard to believe.And it is hard to believe because the man doesn't act at all aswe neophytes on the faculty are apt to think that a man who haspassed the age of retirement ought to act. More than once Ihave participated in substantially the following conversation."So Professor Sweet has retired?""Yes, his retirement became effective in September.""I suppose he has gone to that farm in New Hampshire tosettle down and become a country squire?""Well, no-o-o. He's teaching two courses at Garrett seminarythis Autumn and Winter Quarters— also a course at McCormickSeminary.""He probably had a good rest last summer.""Perhaps. But in June he was in London to deliver the BecklyLecture before the English and Irish Methodist Conferences.""Is that to be published?""I think it is already published— by the Epworth Press inLondon— under the title, "The American1 Churches, An Interpretation." There may be an American edition later.""Another book.""Yes. The other day I was trying to count up the total to date—I counted nineteen— which does not include the four or five inwhich he has collaborated.""Wasn't he at the dinner given by the Institute of Social andReligious Studies the other night?""Yes. You see he is co-chairman of the Institute again thisyear.""You were one of his students, weren't you?"And I vehad mineWHILE this familiar cliche which I have takenas my text may seem to you to have beenchosen in a flippant mood, yet it was not sointended. I have chosen it because it expresses my attitude toward my retirement better than any otherphrase with which I am familiar.In the first place, I do not feel resentful at the necessity of retiring at sixty-five. Rather, I think in manyrespects it is a wise provision. Although some men maybe at the very peak of their powers at sixty-five— and,of course, I am— yet we are all perfectly aware of thefact that they cannot remain so long thereafter. Doddering old men are seldom able to see themselves as otherssee them. That was one of the reasons why my wifeand I decided to move away, Deus volens, from theUniversity community on our retirement, not becauseour affection for the University or for our Universityfriends had grown less but because we would preferto be remembered as we were than as we are sure tobecome. What is true of us will be true of you all.Time will attend to that.The realization that I have reached the age when Ican claim the right to reminisce has come to me withsomething of a shock. In my day I have been compelledto listen to the reminiscing of other aging men, and toooften it has been a heavy cross to bear. But, nevertheless, I now claim the right to do just that, at least fora few moments, which, I hope, you will bear withbecoming Christian fortitude. "Yes, one of the thirty-one candidates that he guided throughto the Ph.D.""I suppose that he will stay at Garrett for some time?""Yes, but apparently he will continue to get around too. InMarch he's going to Huntington Library to spend several monthsworking on the second volume in the series on Religion in America. This one will deal with the National period. Then nextsummer he is to teach at Union Seminary in New York.""Is that a fact? He certainly has done a great deal for thestudy of religion in America.""Well, the time for the summing up is not yet. But I've heardhim say in classes that he has had two major objectives in view—to remind secular historians of the religious forces that havehelped to shape America; and to remind denominational andother historians of religion of the significance of the other religious groups and the secular forces in shaping their particulargroup. He has also stressed that a common knowledge and understanding of their various histories can help a lot in bringingreligious groups together again. And there is no doubt that hishistory of Methodism in America contributed to the creation ofa common understanding that made possible the re-uniting ofthat Church in 1939.""Thats right.""And, by the way, at a Dinner we gave for him in May hereplied to the eulogistic speeches made about him by readinga paper which he called— "Every Dog Has His Day and I've HadMine." You ought to read it."Sidney E. Mead, History of American ChristianityMy DayMy day at the University of Chicago has been nineteen years long. As I look back, a certain day in thespring of 1926 is vivid in my memory. In the late afternoon of a beautiful Indiana spring day a Cadillac drewup before our house and a tall gentleman alighted. Imentioned the Cadillac because none of my friendswere driving cars of that make at that time. At once Isurmised that something unusual was in the wind. Andthere was. This tall, lithe gentleman proved to beShirley Jackson Case, and within fifteen minutes he hadoffered me a professorship in American church historyat the University of Chicago. There had been no correspondence about the matter, and I was not aware thatthe University of Chicago had ever heard of me. WhenI suggested that it seemed rather sudden and that heprobably did not know much about me, Dr. Case remarked, "We know all there is to know about you."While I did not accept at once, I did accept the nextyear and began my work at the University in theautumn of 1927.Now I have some confessions to make, which perhapsshould have been made long ago.The first is that I was not prepared for the job. Nor,as far as I know, was there anyone else prepared forit if by preparation is meant having had courses in thefields; for American church history as a field of teaching and research was at that time non-existent. I hadnever taken a course in American church history, andas far as I know there was few if any such courses offeredanywhere. My graduate study at Columbia Universityand at the University of Pennsylvania had been in thefield of Semitics, in which I received the Master's degree10THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 11(1909) and in European and American history, inwhich I received the doctorate (1912) . I had neverthought of teaching church history until that springafternoon when Dr. Case broached the matter to mein our Greencastle livingroom.The teaching experience I had had before comingto the University had all been in general Europeanand American History, and, with the exception of somegraduate students I had had at Syracuse and Northwestern universities, and at the University of Washington, where I had been a visiting professor duringseveral summers, my teaching had been of an undergraduate nature. It was therefore with considerabletrepidation that I began my work here on the graduatelevel mainly with theological students. I confess, too,that theological schools had no great attraction for me,for I had the idea— an idea which was then much invogue and still is in some quarters— that theologicalschools were generally on a distinctly lower scholasticlevel than other professional and graduate schools. ThisI soon discovered was a fallacy at least as far as Chicagowas concerned.A second confession I am impelled to make is thatmy chief interest in coming to the University was notto train preachers. Rather I came because there wasoffered me here a chance of helping to develop an entirely new field of history. In fact, that was the thingwhich Dr. Case had stressed. I was to be given an adequate research fund; part of my work was to build upAmerican church history in the library, and I was challenged to make it the best in the country. I was tocollect and publish sources, and I was promised thatin carrying on this work I was to have secretarial helpand, when possible, research assistants. And the bestthing about it was that it all came true. Throughoutmy nineteen years here at the University I have nevermade a valid request for the advancement of my workthat has not been granted, and seemingly with greatwillingness.Nowhere in the United States was there another university in which such an experiment could have beeninaugurated so successfully. Before my coming to theUniversity, Professors William E. Dodd and MarcusM. Jerganan had for several years been encouragingstudents to do research in this field, and several notableDoctor's dissertations had already been produced. Infact, I think that Professor Dodd's presence at the University had more to do with my coming than any othersingle factor. Everywhere else, with one or two notableexceptions, Doctor's theses in the field of Americanchurch history were discouraged by the history departments on the ground that such subjects could not betreated with sufficient objectivity. Here I did not havethat absurd position to face in the history department.And since that time American church history subjectshave been increasingly chosen for Doctor's theses in William W. SweetProfessor Emeritus, History ofAmerican Christianity, FederatedTheological Facultyevery major American university. Chicago no longerhas a monopoly on research in that field.One of the principal services that has been renderedhere at the University through the emphasis that hasbeen placed upon teaching and research in Americanchurch history has been to make available to the general American historian such materials as will enablehim to appreciate adequately the part played byreligion in the development of American civilization.It has been most interesting to me to note that manyrecent American history textbooks bear such titles asthe History of American Civilization or the History ofAmerican Culture, indicating that the scope of American history has been broadened to include the greatcivilizing and cultural forces which formerly were almost completely omitted. And I believe that what wehave been doing in American church history here hadsomething to do with this new emphasis.I have still another confession which at long lastI have been given the courage to make. For at leastthe first ten years of the nineteen that I have been amember of this faculty, I had the feeling that I reallydid not belong. The reason for this feeling, as I lookback at it, was something like this. It was just twenty-one years after my graduation from Drew TheologicalSeminary that I joined the Divinity School faculty, andduring those twenty-one years theological education inthe United States had undergone a complete transformation. I had never been exposed to religious education or to the psychology of religion or to the philosophy of religion or to the sociology or religion. WhenI was a student in the seminary, the study of theologywas at low ebb; but, when I joined the faculty here,theology was undergoing a new birth. All these newdisciplines had their own jargon, and the air abouthere was blue with it, or whatever color air becomes(Concluded on Page 19)NEWS OF THE QUADRANGLES• By VEVA SCHREIBERWe look at the recordINCOME of the University of Chicago for the fiscalyear 1945-46, ending last June 30, was approximately $20,594,000, or about double the pre-war normal, the annual report of Harvey C. D'aines, comptroller,disclosed.Completion and termination of wartime nonprofitcontracts for the government, for such projects as thedevelopment of the atomic bomb, proceeded rapidly during the year, these operations dropping from $21,000,000to $7,000,000. In the previous fiscal year the governmentcontracts were largely responsible for a record gross income of $32,600,000.None of the government contracts provided for profit,but they did result in financial benefit in the transfer ofsalaries of staff members, plant expense, and some overhead cost to war projects during a period when studentenrollment was far below normal.The University regular budget, comprising normal educational and research activities, was $10,811,000, an increase of $1,809,000. To balance this budget $333,000was required from reserves.Student fee income of $3,310,000 was the highest inthe University's history, being 30.6 percent of the regularbudget revenues and exceeding endowment income of$3,184,000, which represented 29.5 percent endowmentincome. Patient fees, gifts and overhead allowances fromgovernment contracts were other principal sources ofsupport.Gifts, grants, and bequests paid in were $2,798,000, anincrease of $436,000 over the previous year. Only $170,-000 or 6.1 percent, was the unrestricted money whichis important, Mr. Daines emphasizes, for development ofa balanced program of teaching and research.Total assets, excluding those held for others, were$137,800,000, an increase of $1,144,000 during the year.Endowment funds increased $1,662,000 to $72,570,000.Other assets included general funds, $12,483,000; suspense funds, $4,623,000; loan funds, $308,000; annuityand living trust funds, $1,913,000; and plant, $45,871,000.The endowment income of $3,264,000 represented areturn of 4.55 percent, compared to the 4.52 percent ofthe previous year. In 1929, the peak year of return, therate was 6.2 percent and in 1933-34 and 1938-39, yearsof lowest return, the rate was 4.0 A variation of 1 percent in the rate of return in endowment funds is atpresent equal to $725,000 in annual income, Mr. Dainespoints out."Financing of a privately endowed institution in aperiod of rapidly rising prices is an extremely perplexingproblem/9 Mr. Daines says in his discussion of the budgetary outlook. "The usual practice of business of passing on increasedcosts to its customers can be employed only to a limitedextent in an educational institution because of the peculiar nature of its sources of financial support. Instruction and medical treatment are the principal servicesperformed by the University on a fee basis. The purchasers of these services, students and patients, are notoriously impecunious."It is also clear that increased enrollment, or increasednumber of patients, is not a ready answer to the financialproblem when the fees charged are less than the full costs."In view of these circumstances, the University is compelled to rely on contributions from its friends for current support to a much greater extent than it has in thepast. It is also greatly in need of capital funds to financethe erection of new buildings for use in promising research projects."Fortunately, executives of large corporations are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits to be derivedfrom corporate financing of basic research through thefaculty of the University. Also, the favorable provisionsof present tax laws stimulate generous giving on thepart of both individual and corporate donors."Split infinitives in a split atom ageHere is a startling principle we are happy to heartilyagree with. Harold A. Anderson '24, AM '26 of the Department of Education spoke before the National Council of Teachers of English in a convention at AtlanticCity and said it is all right to split infinitives and use theprepositional ending. Anderson thus lines himself upwith such stalwarts as Stephen Leacock and HenryMencken, who enjoy nothing better than splitting aninfinitive or two.Anderson said that American youth has been confused, if not corrupted by "such sheer grammatical mythsas the split infinitive and the prepositional ending and ahost of other linguistic idolatries which have preoccupiedthe interests of English teachers."Entertainer presents first gift to CancerFoundationThe first gift to the newly incorporated Cancer Foundation of the University of Chicago was made on December 30, 1946, by Miss Sophie Tucker, noted entertainer, who presented her check for $1,000 to MauriceIn the absence of Jeannette Lowrey, whose well earnedChristmas vacation extended beyond our deadline, Mrs.Veva Schreiber, Assistant to the Director of Press Relations, has written this month's "News of the;Quadrangles."Mrs. Schreiber will be remembered as the author of "WeAdopt A University" in the November, 1946, issue.12THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 13Goldblatt, president of the Foundation. Mr. Goldblattalso is a trustee of the Goldblatt Brothers Foundation,which recently gave the University a million dollars toestablish the Nathan Goldblatt Memorial Hospital forthe study and treatment of cancer.Neil H. Jacoby, Vice-president of the University ofChicago, announced that a not-for-profit charter hadbeen granted the Foundation by the state, and that theinitial meeting of the trustees had elected the followingofficers: Maurice Goldblatt, president; Graham Aldis,vice-president; Frank H. MacNair, treasurer; ParkerHall, assistant treasurer; Mr. Jacoby, secretary; and JohnHuck, assistant secretary!The Foundation has been organized to expand thepresent extensive efforts of the University on treatmentand cause of cancer into one of the world's largest .attacks on the disease, with the new Nathan GoldblattMemorial as the center of the study of the diseases.The ever present atomWhen President Truman appointed nine of the country's most eminent scientists and engineers to advise therecently created Atomic Energy Commission on technicalaspects of the new source of power, two University ofChicago professors were among them. Enrico Fermi,Distinguished Service Professor of Physics, and CyrilStanley Smith, Director of the Institute of Metals, werenamed.The President, designating the group as A GeneralAdvisory Committee, specifically authorized it to consultwith the commission on "scientific and technical mattersrelating to materials, production, and research and development."Other members of the advisory group for the AtomicEnergy Commission headed by David E. Lilienthal, are:James Bryant Conant and Lee A. DuBridge, presidentsof Harvard University and California Institute of Technology, respectively; LI. Rabi, Nobel Prize winner inphysics; J. R. Oppenheimer and Glenn T. Seaborg ofthe University of California; Hartley Rowe, vice-president and chief engineer of the United Fruit Company;and Hood Worthington, chemical engineer for E. I.duPont de Nemours & Co.And now it can be toldThrough a fifty per cent remission of Home Study Department tuition fees, the University of Chicago invested" over $87,000 in free education for the country'sfighting personnel, Clem O. Thompson, Director of theHome Study Department, has reported.Nearly 8,000 service men and women have taken advantage of the opportunities offered through the University's home study department. Over 5,000 of thesestudents registered with the University through theUnited States Armed Forces Institute. The remainingnumber registered directly with the University for coursesnot offered in cooperation with the USAFI. Trustees of the University of Chicago voted in theAugust preceding Pearl Harbor to remit 50% of thetuition fees to persons in the armed services who registered in the Home Study Department. That ruling applied both to the Armed Forces Institute students andto those who registered independently, through May 15,1946.Peak month of service registrations came in March,1945. Since that time service enrollment has droppedoff somewhat, due to the return of men and women tocivilian life. Indications are, however, that more andmore of our peacetime servicemen will take advantageof the opportunity to study with the government payingpart of the expense.During the last six months, over 75% of the personsregistered through the Armed Forces Institute were persons who had received at least one promotion since entering service. About 46% of the entire registration wasmade up of officers.Most of the courses taken by armed forces personnelwere on the college level. Popular subjects in wartimeproved to be: English composition, narration, journalistic writing, elementary Russian, and mathematics courses.Mathematics of vector analysis had heavy enrollmentamong radio and radar men, who were eager to learnmore about their work.During the war years, the Home Study Departmentwas further hampered as to what courses could be offered men overseas, because of book shipment difficulties.Limitations as to shipping space, and the fact that duplicate set after duplicate set of texts had to be mailedout slowed up operations. Oftentimes books becamewet or were lost in transportation, and although manyextra sets were sent, the University never charged service men for the additional costs.According to Home Study Department regulations, a' course must be completed within twelve calendar months,or the student is automatically disenrolled. This rulingwas not put in effect for service personnel, however.Frequently books and papers were completely lost, orstudents wrote months later to explain, "I have been inthe hospital for 11 or 12 months and have had no opportunity to do the required work." The Armed ForcesInstitute left it to the University's discretion as to whetheror not students should be allowed to continue a course.With the coming of peace, enrollment has remainedhigh in the Home Study Department. During the 1945-46academic year, well over 11,000 men and women enrolled. Directed by Clem O. Thompson, who has beeninterested in extension work at the university levelsince 1919, the Home Study Department has becomeone of the most popular phases of the University ofChicago's educational program.Before World War II ended, and while a number ofprisoners of war remained in this country, a great manyof the P.W.'s were homestudy students. Heaviest prisonerof war registrations were in the fields of Sanskrit, ad-14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEvanced Russian, Greek, higher mathematics, and Egyptian. Most of the students were German prisoners whopaid their tuition from the prisoners canteen fund, andfrom money earned as day laborers. The first experimentin offering university work to Prisoners of War was conducted by the University of Chicago Home Study Department in cooperation with Camp Grant.A number of the prisoners had not completed theircourses when they left the United States. Each one ofthese were informed that he could resume his work anytime within a year after arriving home. In a few cases,some have arrived home and begun to mail in lessons.Courses in the University of Chicago peacetime HomeStudy Department range from algebra to zoology, witheven one year of Japanese now being offered. Civilianstudents are taking full advantage of the many fields ofstudy and registrations are widely scattered throughoutall departments.Harold C. Urey clubbed second DemocritusHarold C. Urey, Nobel Prize winner and DistinguishedService Professor of Chemistry at the University, wasrecently awarded an honorary doctorate in science atOxford University, England.T. F. Higham, Oxford's public orator, called ProfessorUrey "a second Democritus in power of the mind," referring to the ancient Greek philosopher. Urey, whodiscovered heavy water used in production of the atombomb, worked with the Manhattan Project during thewar.When life begins at 60Three of our Midway social scientists have launched astudy to determine what it takes to keep elderly peoplehappy. The study, which is expected to require 30 years,is being conducted by Robert J. Havighurst, Professor ofEducation; Ernest W. Burgess, Professor of Sociology,and Herbert Goldhamer, Assistant Professor of Sociology.The men decided that with elderly persons making upa larger and larger proportion of our population, someone should find out how to make life begin at 60 or 70.They picked a sample group of 2,000 persons who willbe given personal interviews and fill out questionnairesonce a year. From the data thus obtained the professorshope to find out how useful the "old folks" can be, howmany the government is likely to have to support, andwhat the political consequences of an increasing numberof elderly persons may be."Veterans night out"Chicago coeds are lending their time as baby sittersto give the veterans and wives living in Pre-Fab Citynights out. The girls, under sponsorship of the campusstudent Red Cross unit, are asked to give one night amonth as free baby sitters.Veterans' wives who desire baby sitters for the children sign up at one of the community laundries. Theselists containing name of the family, and time for which a sitter is wanted, are then passed out to student RedCross chairmen in the women's dormitories. Each dormitory chairman, with the aid of a schedule showing whena student will be available for sitting, assigns a girl tothe veteran and his wife. According to the rules, theveteran calls for the sitter at her residence hall, andescorts her back when he and his wife come home. Frequently the 'girls go in pairs for companionship andstudy together once the children are asleep.After the routine of the home, the young veteransand their wives are grateful for a night out, particularlyfor one without paying the 65 cents awake and 50 centsasleep rate charged by baby sitters these days. "A veteran's income isn't designed for extras like that," one ofthe prefab mothers said.For the time being only veterans living in pre fab unitsclose to campus are eligible for this free baby sittingservice. The service may later be extended to all veteran students and their wives.Getting practical experience on child care from youngAnn Blocksma is Barbara Barke, chairman of the campusRed Cross unit, who evolved the baby sitting service idea.Barbara and her friend, Marjorie Gilfillan chairman of theservice, spent an evening recently tending two-year oldAnn and her baby brother Ralph, children of Mr. and Mrs.Douglas Blocksma. Barbara entertained the little girl whileMarjorie studied and finally they cooperated on puttingher to bed.PotpourriDr. Russell H.

He predicted that rising pricesin the United States were "nearing the top." Bloughasserted that he "saw no reason to believe that priceswould get out of hand. Although a large amount ofmoney is in circulation," he continued, "the reason wedo not have more inflation is because the citizen believesthat rising prices will level off. We have not reachedthe top of the price cycle yet. However, we are gettingnear the top."Brown-out.

The series is designed to promote mutual understanding among nations.Atomic Etiquette. The reckless men that would transform the atomic bombs into the new international callingcard have never learned or have quickly forgotten theprinciples of Nurnberg, Bernard D. Meltzer, ProfessorialLecturer in the Law School, said recently:"The success and significance of Nurnberg would de pend, not so much on what has been done in the trialsthere, but on what the world would do with the greatsymbol Nurnberg in the continuing struggle to turn theimagination of men toward peace."Bernard D. Meltzer, A.B. '35, J.D. '37, assisted JusticeRobert H. Jackson in the prosecution of Axis WarCriminals at Nurnberg. He returned to the quadranglesas a Professorial Lecturer in the Law School last November.Amateurs Wanted: "Trust in system has such a stranglehold on the American people that an honest, well-meaning, able man, concerned to find the best solutionof a problem, turns to devising systems instead of lookingat the facts and acting with common sense," Stanley Mc-Crary Pargellis, librarian of the Newberry library, said inthe 227th Convocation address."If the United Nations is to succeed, it will not bebecause of a system, but because an amateur, a humanbeing with his wits about him, sits on the Council,"Pargellis declared."A good hobby will turn a man into an amateur andset him free. And the cultivation of more amateurs isthe only answer to the standardization of the machine."The nations' abject surrender to the machine canand must be checked in the universities. Though theydo not have exclusive rights, universities, . more thanother institutions, set up as their twin aims the exploration of new pastures and the leading of students tobrowse among the old," Pargellis concluded.President Ernest C. Colwell conferred the degrees.Eighty-four of the graduates received bachelor's degreesfrom the College of the University, which admits studentsafter their sophomore year in high school for a four-yearprogram of general education.(Photo courtesy Shell Progress)Victor Peterson In a recent issue of Shell Oil Company's bi-monthly magazine,"Shell Progress," appeared a clever and interesting story titled, "WeTook a Trip." It was generously illustrated with scenes of Indiana,Kentuck and, need we add, a neat Shell station operator here andthere fixing a tire or the baby's milk or giving directions on a Shellmap.

With no regrets, oneway or the other, he rolls out his background:"I first intended to become a professor of American History and politicalscience . . . received my M.A. degree in 1939 . . . also did most of my workon my Ph.D. and took a turn at teaching. I turned around, but fast, andentered the field I always felt I would like the best: newspaper work."Vic was born in Rockford, Illinois, in 1916; got the "Victor Herbert" froma combination of family names.

They both were graduated magnacum laude, with a Phi Beta Kappa key for each.Sager, who makes the family a trio and plays an important andamusing part in dad's story, was born October 21, 1945 in Indianapolis. According to dad, "Sager was a perfect gentleman throughout [the trip]."FIFTY YEARS AGONo woman everthought of smokingFIFTY years! Half a century! So long ago it wasthat I left the University of Chicago never to return. As in a dream I see the Gothic buildings, thecampus with its scrubby oaks, and the professors incaps and flowing gowns well nigh as awe-inspiring asthe gods of Olympus once were. Then the Universitywas in its infancy. The imposing structure known asCobb Hall, the men's dormitories, the stately towers ofKent and Ryerson, the Walker Museum and the women's quadrangle including Foster, Beecher, and KellyHalls, these were the only buildings there were.More important than buildings, however, were themen, for it is the faculty that makes a university.Realizing this full well, Dr. Harper, with his wide acquaintance, keen perception, the Rockefeller millionshad gathered together a group of men who were leadersin their special fields. Among these were John Dewey,philosopher, Dr. Hermann von Hoist from FreiburgUniversity, Paul Shorey, Greek scholar, Dr. Michelson,scientist, Professor Moulton, English Shakespearian student, Dr. Judson, and scores of others. They were themost brilliant galaxy in the educational world andattracted students from far and near. Most of these camefor graduate work; many were teachers of long experience, eager to know more. There was created an atmosphere of learning in which professors and studentsstrove for the advancement of knowledge.In those early days William Rainey Harper was theruling spirit which animated the entire life of the University. This round-faced, bespectacled, stocky man wasmore than an authority on Hebrew, he was an administrator of the highest order, a leader among men, andabove all a man of indefatigable energy and unwaveringfaith. This man of vision had joined with John D.Rockefeller, the Midas of business, to create an institution destined to become one of the world's greatest educational centers. This was located in no ivory-toweredseclusion, but in the heart of industrial America wherethe arteries of trade extended east and west, north andsouth. Here the spiritual and material were united inthe pursuit of truth which should be a benefit to allmankind.From Maine to the MidwayEven now, I scarcely can understand how I happenedto go from Maine to Chicago for an education. It wasone of those leadings of Providence, that "divinity thatshapes of ends, rough-hew them how we will."When I was in the Academy, I never had thought of • By ROSE A. GILPATRICK, "96going to college and I did not know any women whohad gone. I taught school one year and realized the needof more education. I went to Colby College in Water-ville, Maine, one year but was not allowed to becomea regular student as I had not studied Greek, though Ihad studied Latin, French and German. At that time,however, Greek was required for admission to all theeastern colleges. I then taught four years in a smallhigh school.In the summer of 1893 I went to the World's Fair tosee that White City on the shores of Lake Michigan.One day as I was strolling alone down the Midway,tired of the beating of tom-toms and the Babel of foreign tongues. I began to wonder about the large buildings on the other side of the Midway. When I learnedthat they belonged to the new University of Chicago, myinterest was aroused at once, for that was the institutionthat had taken the President of Colby College, AlbionW. Small, to become the head of the Department of Sociology and Professor Shailer Mathews under whom Ihad taken a course in English. Feeling that I must seethis famous place, I immediately went over.The door of Cobb Hall was open and I ventured in.Then I met the genial Dean Miller. In the friendlyinterview which followed he assured me that I could beadmitted to this new college without Greek and thatcredit would be given for all the work done at Colbyas well as for any examinations I might be able to pass.Furthermore, he said that on account of my experienceI would be allowed to elect graduate courses. This wasthe opportunity I had desired, this was my Rubicon.At once I returned to my room, packed my suitcase,and returned to Maine. There I made arrangementsto enter the U. of C. in the fall.The room assigned to me was in Beecher Hall whichhad been completed that summer. Everything was new,almost too new for the walls were glaring white plaster.The lighting was by means of gas jets without mantlesso that they gave flickering lights which were very trying to the eyes. I was obliged to invest in an old lampand a kerosene can, so that from that time, I literally"burned the midnight oil." These trials, however, weretrifling when compared with the advantages.By good fortune another Maine girl, a graduate ofColby, went to Chicago that year for further study.We occupied adjoining rooms and became the bestof friends. We were known as "the girls from Maine"and it might as well have been Greenland for that wouldhave seemed hardly less foreign to the Western girls.They used to ask us if we saw many bears around and ilwe were snow-bound in winter. We assured them thatthe coast of Maine was settled long before Illinois was16THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 17and the bears had betaken themselves to the great northern woods. Yet, who of us could afford to boast of agewhen America is really so young?My great grandmother, who was an early settler, didencounter a bear while she was riding horseback witha baby in her arms through a trail in the woods. Moreover, we were often snowbound in winter before theautomobiles revolutionized the highways. In those "gaynineties" the horse was king of the roads. Time has beenshort, but the changes have been rapid.Lamb was cheaperThe greatest change we noticed was in the diet. Dr.Harper had arranged that, in the women's dormitories,the food should be strictly hygienic under the supervision of Mrs. Ellen H. Richards, the first authority onfood for health. She gave us lectures regularly at firstin which she explained the basic foods which the bodyrequires, protiens, carbohydrates, fats, and minerals,and the calories necessary for the maintenance of healthand energy. This was new to most of us. Fortunately,or otherwise, vitamins had not been discovered toworry us.When the theory was put into practice, it meant thecomplete elimination of all sweet foods such as cakeand pastry as well as tea and coffee. To those who hadbeen accustomed to think no meal was -complete without doughnuts, pie or cake or all three, this was adecided change. We were cautioned against supplementing these meals with lunches outside lest that ruin thegood effects. Since lamb is more easily digested or possibly less expensive than beef, beefsteak was a rarity.Although the meals were not especially palatable, Iaccepted this as a part of my higher education andsoon formed the habit of allowing my mind to controlmy appetite. In time, my health improved so muchthat sometimes I have felt that the best thing I got atChicago was right habits of eating. There the foundation was laid for the health I have enjoyed ever since.No doubt the required gymnastic training had muchto do with it, too. The purpose of this was not for sportbut for the promotion of health. The physical examination, the first I ever had had, showed certain defectsand all my exercise was corrective. It was drudgery towork every day with pulleys and dumb bells, but I feltrepaid at the end when Dr. Foster told me that I hadmade greater improvement than any of the other girls.There was much work and little play in those daysfor there were no organized social activities on thecampus. There were no motion pictures, but occasionally we went (in town) to a play or the opera. Afterdinner the girls used to dance a while and then go totheir rooms to study. Once in a while some distinguishedperson was a guest at dinner and afterwards spoke tous. Among those who interested us especially were JaneAddams, Hamlin Garland, and Eugene Field. It was atChicago that I had my introduction to Grand Opera and how thrilled I was to hear Wagner's "Lohengrin"and "Faust." Nordica and Madame Eames were atthe height of their fame.Uninvited visitorsExcitement was not lacking for even in those good olddays Chicago had its thieves and the University wasnot entirely safe. One morning Miss Reynolds, the headof Foster Hall, got up to find her clothes missing andthe waitresses lost clothing from their rooms while theywere serving dinner one night. Beecher was ransackedone week-end by a prowler who entered vacant roomsand took jewelry and other valuables. When he wentacross to the men's dormitories he did not fare so well,for he was caught and brought to trial. That was notwithout its romantic side because a man and womanwho were witnesses in the case became acquainted andlater married. "Socializing" had not become commonat that time and it took some unusual circumstance tobring the men and women together. The immediateresult of these petty thefts was that we kept our doorslocked all the time and often barricaded at night.Locks and keys were no barriers to some little peststhat seemed to thrive in the big city. The first night Ispent in Chicago I got up in the morning to find myarms completely covered with a rash, as I supposed,but my friend, a nurse in the city, laughed and said,"so the bugs found you and had a feast."I thought when I moved into the new dormitory, Ishould be safe, but every now and then a stray specimen, possibly a "left-over" from the Fair, came around,seeking whom he could devour and invariably madehis way to my room. Then everything had to be sprayedwithout benefit of D.D.T., much to the housekeeper'sannoyance.One Saturday, I went up and bought a new hat.The next morning when I went to put it on to go tochurch, I found an impudent little bug perched defiantly on the end of a feather. My only thought wasI tAt our request Rose AdelleGilpatrick remembers theearly days on the quadrangles. Born in Maine in1869, she returned thereafter graduation and PhiBeta Kappa recognition, tobecome Dean of Girls atCoburn Classical Institutein Waterville. In 1917 shereceived an HonoraryMaster of Arts degree fromColby College after whichshe was called home to Hal-lowell because of illness inthe family. The family hassince passed on. Miss Gilpatrick remained in Hallowellwhere she continues to carry her share of civic and culturalresponsibilities.18 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE"Oh wad some power the giftie gie usTo rid oursel's ere others see us."Examinations were oralOur work was the one important thing for we all hadcome with the desire to learn as much as possible.After I had completed the required subjects in theJunior College, I specialized in history and English.Under the guidance of Professor Terry, who blazedthe trail, we made our way through the dark mazes ofthe Middle Ages.The examinations were individual, oral ones lastinghalf an hour. How I dreaded that first one! But Professor Terry was so friendly and so interested we enjoyed those special sessions. Then Dr. von Hoist, withhis keen mind and dramatic style made the FrenchRevolution so real that we felt like participants. Professor Moulton's courses on Shakespeare and the GreekDrama were more like entertainment than a study.His recitals of the plays of Aeschylus and Sophoclesintroduced us to tragedy more thrilling than that ofany movie actor today. His students could never thinkof Lady Macbeth as the instigator of crime, but ratheras the ambitious and devoted wife willing to do anything to further the interests of her husband.Our classes were so interesting that we experiencedthe joy of working. The time was lacking to do all wewanted to do. Every day brought some new adventureinto the realm of knowledge; every day some new ideaaroused more enthusiasm. In truth, we were young explorer starting on a never-ending quest.It was not only from^the professors that we learned,but also from the association with each other. Thewomen in Beecher Hall were nearly all graduate students representing different states and different colleges.They were an exceptional group who shared with eachother their knowledge and experience. We discussedeverything from the creation to the latest novel. Evenour unsavory meals were seasoned with a "feast of reason and flow of soul."We came to know professors and subjects by proxy,as it were. One woman used to sing the praises of RobertHerrick who was teaching a course in rhetoric and wholater achieved a reputation as a novelist. When shetold me his comment upon a character sketch she hadwritten about me was, "You have immortalized thatlittle lady," I felt as if I had received a personal introduction.Hollywood was only desertThere were writers in those days who were producingliterature and we were eager to read the new books.There were Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book and TheLight That Failed, Thomas Hardy's Tess of D'Urber-ville, Mrs. Humphrey Wards' books and George Merediths Egairt. Those phophets of the nineteenth century,Tennyson and Browning, were the beacon lights of our time. I read everything I could find that Meredith hadwritten and wrote a thesis aiming to show that he wasthe greatest modern novelist. Hollywood and the radiohad not come to appeal merely to the eye and ear. Wefound our enjoyment in the realm of the mind.The friendships we formed meant much. The oldestand most outstanding character in Beecher was Charlotte Comstock Grey ('97, D.B. '98, A.M. '00. Deceased,1937), a widow of middle age who always dressed indeep mourning. She and her husband had kept a bookstore in Albany, N. Y. He died suddenly leaving nowill and the business and beautiful home with all its. furnishings were sold to settle the estate. Heartbroken,Mrs. Gray found solace in the study of Hebrew. AtChautauqua she studied under Dr. Harper who advisedher to go to the University of Chicago. Although shewas familiar with books, she had not had an opportunity to secure an education which she always had wanted.She came to Chicago in 1893 and became a sort ofmentor to me. She shared with me her joys and sorrows, her Biblical knowledge and even her bread, whichshe used to buy. She was in the Divinity School studyingHebrew,. Aramaic, Greek, and Biblical Interpretation.Through her I came to know much about Dr. Harperand his teaching. He was so busy he held his classes inthe early morning before the regular sessions beganbut the students felt it an opportunity to attend.It wasnft put onIt was a wise choice that Dr. Harper made when heinduced Alice Freeman Palmer to be the Dean of Graduate Women, for in addition to her reputation as an educator she was a perfect type of gracious womanhood.She used to come for six weeks at the beginning of eachsemester. She had no classes, but she held interviewswith the women and visited the dormitories givinginspiring talks. Her special characteristic was her friendliness and interest in everybody she met.One day I was expressing my admiration of her to afriend who said, "Oh, that is all put on. If she wereto meet us off the campus, she would not know us." Ithappened that we went to the opera that evening andhad seats in the upper balcony. Mrs. Palmer, who wasseated on the floor, looked up and recognizing us,nodded and smiled. Her sincerity as well as her friendliness and wisdom made her great. As professor Palmersaid of her: "Each eye that saw her blessed her; eachear that heard her was made glad."There was a strong religious influence in the University at its beginning. As Dr. Harper's special fieldwas religion, he had gathered about him a group ofscholars especially devoted to the search for spiritualtruth. That movement came to be known as modernism.People have accused the leaders of attempting to destroyfaith in the Bible. That was not their purpose for thesemen were deeply religious and were trying to savereligion at a time when the discoveries of science wereTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 19threatening to undermine the orthodox faith. By showing the human element in the origin of the Bible andits historical growth, they laid the foundation for a "newfaith for old," as Dean Shailer Mathews expressed it.We had many speakers from outside for chapel andSunday services. Among these were Henry Drummond,the author of The Natural Law in the Spiritual World,William P. Stead, the English journalist, and ProfessorPalmer of Harvard. What I remember best was a courseof lectures by Dr. Harper on the Beginnings of the OldTestament. As I try to make some appraisal of whatthe University of Chicago did for me, I realize thatnot the least of the benefits was a more rational and spiritual religion, transcending creeds and rituals.Those, indeed, were "the good old days" when theyoung people were not so sophisticated as they aretoday. None of the women ever thought of smoking andI cannot recall that I ever saw any evidence of intoxication on the campus, though the city of Chicago was noGarden of Eden. As I had grown up in the leadingprohibition state, this seemed to me the proper thing.Times certainly have changed, but the value of "plainliving and high thinking" still continues. My memories of the University of Chicago are only of the thingsthat make for better living, good health, clear thinking, strong character, and high spiritual ideals.Every Dog Has His Day[Continued jrom Page 11)under such conditions. And, by the way, the definitionof "jargon" found in Webster is "to emit confused orunintelligible sounds; to talk unintelligibly, or in harshor noisy manner." It took me a good ten years to getan inkling of what it was all about, but during thelast nine years I have begun to feel a little more athome. During that long period of my apprenticeship inthese new disciplines, I often wished that history mighthave developed an equally unintelligible jargon, forI am sure it it could have done so it would have beena much more respected discipline. Another handicapunder which history has labored it that it has neverprofessed to furnish a quick remedy for the ills ofthe world. It knows too much about man's long record.But it has, I think, served as a balance wheel to keepthe theological engine from burning out all its cylinders.When I came to the University nineteen years ago,I came to join Shirley Jackson Case, W. E. Garrison,and John T. McNeill in the University of Chicago,Matthew Spinka and Wilhelm Pauck of the ChicagoTheological Seminary, and Charles Lyttle of MeadvilleTheological School, who constituted the largest groupof church historians to be found in any universitycenter. And it was a busy and co-operative group. Thevery atmosphere of the whole camp compelled us to keep busy, and the lights were burning in Swift Hallalmost every night. Dr. Case set the pace, and we alldid our best to be worthy of his leadership. One of theresults was that between 1927 and 1944 there came fromthis body of church historians more than thirty volumes.AfternoonAnd now my day at the University is about over; infact, it is rather late in the afternoon. But the afternooncan be and ought to be the most pleasant part of theday, and we, my wife and I, intend to make it so. Thereare so many things that can be done in the afternoonthat one does not think of even trying to do in themorning. Late afternoon is the playtime of the day.You can play tennis in the evening if you have a goodheart and not too high blood pressure and if your children have not run off with all your tennis equipment.You can visit around among your children and fromthe sidelines watch them raising your grandchildren.There may be some teaching at other institutions to doand a great deal of reading you never had time forbefore and perhaps some writing that has long beenplanned.Then, after a while, there will come the "twilight andevening bell."Worm in the Rose[Continued from Page 7)short year, it is there again, more threatening than before. The prayers of thanksgiving that the thunders ofthe old one had ceased, die on silently moving lips asthe new one grows.The heart of man grows numb with the pain of crumbling faith in his gods, in his leaders, in himself. Is there to be found iii things that are, some rock uponwhich his tired feet may stand, some gleam of eternaltruth to put a new light in his eyes, some unchallengeablereason for faith to put new hope in his breast? He haslost his way and his civilization is about to come tofinal judgment.STUDENTS AND ACTIVITIES• WILLIAM C. MONTGOMERY, '47Bert Wax and the student forumHOT debate and careful psychiatric analysis wouldseem at first glance to be poles apart. Not so,according to Bert Wax, director of the StudentForum. Bert passed his examination for a Master's degree in psychiatric social casework with top grades lastDecember, but he insists that debating is also a highlydeveloped science in its own right.He should know. Under Bert's guidance during thelast year Student Forum has expanded from a small debating society to a full-time enterprise with three weeklyradio shows and a heavy inter-collegiate debatingschedule.Bert came to the University of Chicago byway of Roger SullivanHigh, Wright Junior College and the army. Oneof the first returned veterans on campus, he wasdischarged from an armyhospital in 1943 after aserious accident in theRocky Mountains, wherehe was in training withthe 89th Infantry Div.He came here in Octoberof that year, received hisPh.B. a year later and Bert Waxentered the Social Service Administration school. He expects to receive his MA next August and in the meantimewill complete three-quarters of field work.Psychiatric social work and the Student Forum don'ttake up all of Bert's time, however. He has been anassistant head in the men's residence halls for over a year,and was head resident of Woodlawn Hall last summer.Between these three jobs Bert occasionally finds timeto demonstrate his hypnotic powers. Shortly after onesuch demonstration his room was besieged by eager subjects who had heard that he could send a hypnotizedsubject off to make straight A's in the comprehensive examinations. The enthusiasm died immediately when heexplained that it was necessary to study beforehand anyway.As for the Student Forum's activities under Bert's leadership, they include one weekly half-hour educationalprogram directed at Chicago schools over WBEZ, theFM station. WBBM carries two Forum programs aweek, one a half -hour quiz show featuring local and national leaders who are questioned about their careers byForum members, the other a half-hour program present ing a "big-name" speaker for fifteen minutes, followedby three Forum members who discuss the speaker's views.The Student Forum also sends groups on request tocivic, social and religious organization meetings to discuss current topics and answer questions from the audience. Finally, Forum members conduct courses in debating and public speaking, under Bert's guidance.At 23, Bert is looking forward to his Master's degreenext August, an apprenticeship in California and a possible job in Australia.Two ball rooms — two bands . . .February 21st will see the revival of an old Universitytradition, the Washington Prom. The Student SocialCommittee, under the direction of Don Johnson and EdArmstrong, announces the biggest and best ball in thelong series. Two ballrooms will be rented in the Shore-land Hotel, and two bands will play, one of them a yet-to-be-announced "big-name" orchestra.This year's Wash Prom will have another attraction:The Man and Woman of the Year, to be chosen inFebruary by campus-wide election, will be presented tothe student body at the dance. Nominations to the election will be made by the men's halls and fraternities, andwomens halls and girls' clubs. The election is jointlysponsored by the Maroon staff and the Student SocialCommittee, and it is rumored that the "big prize" to beawarded will be a short trip to a sunny winter resort.. . . and a playThe Players Guild production of Aeschylus' "Agamemnon" will be on the boards in Mandel Hall, February20, 21 and 22.Bill Montgomery, thestudent who introduced usto Mr. Quad and family inthe January issue, continues his introductions.20THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 21FEBRUARY CALENDARSPECIAL EXHIBIT DURING THE ENTIRE MONTH-'ToodsFrom the Farm; How Living Things Start and Grow."

Editorial policies and theselection of articles are in the handsof a joint board of editors.This cooperation, which providespublication for other institutions aswell, means that a single journal,rather than four or five, serves thefield.The Astrophysical Journal also hasthe distinction of having a higher ratioof foreign subscribers than any otherof the magazines. Approximately sixty Press Publishes 22|Magazines{Continued from Page 9)per cent of the subscribers are outsidethe United States.The Journal of Geology is uniquein that it is one of the few if not theonly magazine published by a university press which has an endowment.The late Richard Alexander FellertonPenrose, Jr. gave the University afund, the income from which is to beused to support publication of theJournal. The income to date has beenadequate to finance publication of themagazine and also to permit occasional publication of supplements ofimportant contributions of more than magazine length.The small number of subscribersand the low subscription prices meanthat, with a few exceptions, the magazines are published at a loss. Eachyear the University appropriates a substantial amount to underwrite itsmagazine publishing program. However, as one of the principal meansof communication among scholars andscientists, the magazines are an important link and often a first link inthose chains which lead from an ideato a better world.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 23NEWS OF THE CLASSES1896Sunday noon, December 1, 1946,at the University Church of Disciplesof Christ, 57th and University, amemorial window designed by ArthurMichaudel of Chicago was dedicatedto Lieutenant Charles MacClintock,son of Samuel MacClintock, PhD '08.Charles died January 18, 1945, frombattle wounds received in Luxembourg.

ON THE SHADY SIDEIt was the summer of 1928 that George and Adeline Link alighted froma Canadian Pacific Pullman at the little British Columbia flagstation, Hector,and took an eight-mile trail to the more than mile high Lake O'Hara inthe western shadows of the Continental Divide.On the shores of this mountain-mirroring lake Adeline and George wereto spend their next fourteen summers. Just for fun they began buildinga trail along the rocky, wooded shores, opening new scenic vistas for generations to follow.Their trail finally led past Mt. Odaray where they would sit on the bigrock in the late afternoon and watch the light effects play across thefir-spruce forests below. On one of these occasions Adeline said, "Isn't thisthe place to strew our ashes, yours on the sunny [George loves sun bathing]and mine on the shady side of our rock?" It was agreed.Neither realized how soon. . . . On November 20, 1943, Adeline De SaleLink, Ph.D. '17, popular chemistry teacher and student Adviser, passedaway. The following summer, in her memory and in response to her wishesand their pledge, George K. K. Link, '10, Ph.D. '16, Professor of PlantPathology, carried her ashes up on the rock ledge of Mt. Odaray andreverently strewed them on the shady (her) side. And the trail they hadbuilt together? In the presence of a number of old friends including thelodge caretaker, it was dedicated The Adeline Link North Shore- Trail.George returns to Lake O'Hara each summer while, on the Midway wherehe and his wife had worked together so many winters, a memorial studentloan fund, begun by friends and former students, has grown to more thantwelve hundred dollars.We were reminded of this story where Christmas brought an O'Hara Lakescene and the little book of Dedication from our good friend George.If you will look closely you can see the light line of the trail to the extremeright of the picture. It leads to Mt. Odaray at the far left where "their"rock is just below those patches of snow.The trail leads to Odaray24 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE3 HOUR SERVICEEXCLUSIVE CLEANERSAND DYERSSince 10201442 and 1331 E. 57th St.•EVENING GOWNSAND FORMALSA SPECIALTY,,., 0608 ^ We call forMidway 0602 • and deliver3 HOUR SERVICELATOURAINECoffee and TeaLa Touraine Coffee Co.209 Milwaukee Ave., ChicagoOther PlantsBoston — N.Y. — Phil. — Syracuse — Cleveland"You Might As Well Have The Best"Telephone Haymarket 3120E.

Within the last half century the average length of life of a new born infant hasincreased over 30fo. And many more people over 40 cannow expect to live well into their seventies.Among the reasons for this progress, along with notableadvancements made by the medical profession, are the improvements in medicinals and medical equipment that helpguard life.Synthetic organic chemicals now are used in the production of a host of pharmaceuticals, including penicillin andthe sulfa drugs, which have accomplished wonders, in thefight against germs. They also are used in repellents to defeat disease-carrying insects. Out of research with gases hascome oxygen therapy, an aid to recovery in numerous illnesses. Research with metals and alloys has produced thegleaming, easy-to-clean stainless steel used in modern hospital and medical equipment. In safeguarding life— just as in transportation and communications—much of man's progress is traceable to bettermaterials.Producing better materials for the use of industry andthe benefit of mankind is the work of Union Carbide.Basic knowledge and persistent research are required,particularly in the fields of science and engineering. Working with extremes of heat and cold— frequently as high as6000° or as low as 300° below zero, Fahrenheit— and withvacuums and great pressures, Units of UCC now separate orcombine nearly one-half of the many elements of the earth.Union CarbideAJV1> CAJUOJV COJZJPORATIOJV30 EAST 42ND STREET JOB- NEW YORK 17, N.

'10, president of the Utah Chapter of the University of Chicago Alumni Association, returned recently from Paris, wherehe attended the Peace Conference in a consultant and advisory capacity. Thiswas not his first experience in working behind the scenes of meetings inwhich the problems of the world are the main consideration.For, in 1945, as president of the International Association of Lions Clubs,he was invited to the San Francisco Conference as consultant to the American Delegation. At that time he met and advised with many of the worldleaders in the cause of peace. In September, 1946, he, together with thepresent president of the Lions, was invited to attend the meeting in Paris,which was an outgrowth of the original conference. The arrangements werein connection with the Department of State and the many participants withwhom he had worked previously.After being cordially received by the officials of the State Department,including Ben Cohen, '14, JD '15, one of the commission members, Skeen tookpart in the presentation to Secretary Byrnes of a scroll from the Lions International. This action in expressing to the Conference the confidence andappreciation of the 295,000 Lions in eighteen nations was particularly effective during a time when doubt as to the Conference's ultimate success wasat a peak.
