OCTOBER •• • • 1949EDITOR'SMEMO PADThe EditorHere we go againAlumni House has profited by talentedstudents, who pause on the quadrangles f01;;higher degrees and pass on to other worlds.But it commits us to a sort of hail and fare­well existence.So we say farewell to our associate edi­tors of last year. Both have received theirMaster's. Arthur joins the State Depart­ment and Vivian will join partnership withDonald R. McCoy a young man who iscompleting his M.A. in political science.Class News Editor Valeria Craig, a Chi­cago M.B.A. in her own right and wifeof a Ph.D. candidate in geology, becomesDirector of Alumni Education, succeedingRobert Nottenburg, who will spend fulltime on his Ph.D.This issue's masthead, therefore, carriesthe names of two other alumni who willdevote full time to editing the MAGAZINEand TOWER TOPICS-the latter now anenlarged bi-monthly instead of a four-pagequarterly.Bergquist ColbyLaura Bergquist, '39, came to the Mid­way after a scholarship summer at MedillSchool of Journalism (Northwestern). Sheremained four years-on scholarships, be­came editor of the Maroon, president ofInterclub and Nu Pi Sigma, and a Un i- versity Aid. Her enthusiasm for the Uni­versity and its studen t activities are stillobvious.Following graduation she joined a colonyof U. of C alumni in New York's "Village."This group was part of the famous Hutch(for Hutchins) Club and their ambitionswent in all directions. Laura's was fea­ture writing and she landed on the ruggednight shift of the Newark ST AR·LEDGER,with side stories to King Features.Her next stop was Chicago and the as�sociate editorship of CORONET; then onto Hollywood to open the California officefor ESQUIRE-CORONET. The LatinAmerican interests of her company hadher buying stories and pictures from Mex­ico. These contacts landed her on thecampaign train with Miguel Aleman, Mex­ican presidential candidate and, followinghis election, in a public relations job forthat government.This involved 50,000 miles of travel fromMexican coast to coast, not to mentionnumerous pilgrimages into the U. S. forencouraging better relations.Last summer Laura walked into AlumniHouse, and we slipped an editorial collararound her neck.Leonard L. Colby got his Bacheler's fromNorthern Illinois State Teachers College(DeKalb) and did work on his Master's atChicago.He became editor of the Mont Clare­Leyden Herald, a northwest suburbanweekly owned by Oak Leaves of Oak Park.His next move was to Kalamazoo College(Michigan) as director of public relationswhere he started a monthly alumni maga­zine for the college.The local radio station, \VKZO, per­suaded him to join the staff as director ofpromotion. He did sportscasts, includingall the University of Michigan footballgames over a Michigan network. Evennow, on week-ends, he works as' a "spot­ter" in the Chicago radio booths for theprofessional games.But Leonard enjoyed the public rela­tions work with alumni and was offered aposition on the staff. He has a wife andtwo children: Richard, 7, and Karen, 6.Roomette"But won't the pulpit be too crowdedwith two in it?" Albert Schweitzer wasasked when he insisted that his interpreterstand at his side while Schweitzer spoke inthe Chapel (Se� P. 5)."Too crowded?" smiled Schweitzer, "Icame from Aspen in a roomette."Sunday, before the Monday morning hewas to receive his honorary degree, Dr.Schweitzer was being oriented in theChapel. The world famous organistcouldn't resist slipping onto the organbench and trying out the mighty Skinner.It was such a joy he asked if he mightreturn Monday afternoon-secretly, please;no audience.At the appointed time he was at theChapel office. He was ushered, via theambulatory behind the chancel, to theorgan. At no time was he in view of thenave. This was providential for the Doctor'played to his heart's content, returned tothe office by the same route, and left, neverhaving been aware of the crowd numberingtoward a thousand in the pews. Never oncehad they applauded. Each knew he wasn'tsupposed to be there; each had been asquiet as a chapel mouse.It migh t as well have been a State De­partment secret with Drew Pearson in thewings. When University hosts arrived aheadof Dr. Schweitzer that Monday afternoon they were appalled to discover the navefilled with people. No one seemed to knowhow all these people had learned ofSchweitzer's rendezvous with the Skinner.The hosts went into a worried huddle.To admit the presence of an audiencewould make it obligatory to disband them;to disband them would cause confusionwhich would frighten away the Doctor. Itwas decided to ignore the crowd and hopefor the best. The hope paid off.The special Convocation at whichSchweitzer was honored was probably thelargest in Chapel history-with 2,000 in theChapel and another thousand on the lawn,which was set with loud speakers. Presentalso were nine Trustees and the largestnumber of faculty in the memory of old­timers. A.B.C. recorded the program and,later, broadcast it nationally.We Made A SurveyLast June we wereasked by a Universityofficial who had rea­sons for asking: "Whatis the most popularfeature in the MAGA·ZINE?" Without apause we said: "Newsof the Classes." "Howdo you know?" Come to think of it Wedidn't know. We'd find out.So in July we sent every eighth member(of our 8,000 readers) a questionnaire.We go to press before all the results arein so we'll have to wait until the nextissue to report but we know now it isn'tNews of the Classes.We also know that a certain alumna 12years out, living in Washington, D. C.,shouldn't have gotten a set of the ques­tions. We haven't permission to publishher reply so she will have to remainanonymous:"Have said beforethat I thought it was /'1"' .. "-an excellent magazine-can't see why youhave to wonder aboutit. Some issues I readmore thoroughly thanothers because some­times I have moretime."This large-scalesoul searching is be­coming such a part ofthe pattern of Ameri­can life that it is irri­tating to me. A goodeditor doesn't need tobe told by a whole lotof nincompoops (?) [the? is hers] what todo and effective criticism will be his with.out asking."This sort of thing reminds me of cer­tain relatives of mine who ask my opinionabout dress, furnishings, or politics andthen go ahead exercising their own judg­ments regardless."I can't see how your results would beany more interesting or important than theresults of the Kinsey type of thing-juststatistics which might be conclusive ormight not-who will ever know?"So I conclude what I didn't mean tobe so long-it's a fine magazine. Just goahead and don't ask us what we like. Youshould know."And in the same mail from a super in.tendent of schools in Michigan: "Frankly,the magazine has nothing that interestsme." His membership expires with thisissue. And if surveys mean anything, weknow he won't renew.Lawyers Hold ReunionIn connection with the St. Louis meetingof the American Bar Association, alumni ofthe Law School held a luncheon this fallunder the chairmanship of Ivan Lee Holt,Jr., '35, JD '37.

C.For our ageTHE STATUREOF GREATNESS(Below is the complete text of the 238thconvocation in honor of Dr. Albert Schweit­zer on July 11.)BERN ARD MacDougall Loomer,Dean of the Divinity School:Mr. President: I have the honorof presenting as a candidate for anhonorary degree, Albert Schweitzer.A son of Europe, but a citizen ofthe world, who by the full develop­ment of his many talents and sensi­tivities has exemplified for our agethe stature of greatness inherent in aman possessed by a high devotion.A· biblical scholar and historianwhose revolutionary interpretation ofthe figure of Jesus of Nazareth rad­ically altered the course of criticalbiblical scholarship and the structure of modern theology. His perceptionand insistence that the eschatologicalelement in jesus' thought was centraland basic to his teachings constitutesone of the major orientations that twogenerations' of biblical scholars havehad to confront and take into account.Beyond this, his studies of Paul, theforemost Christian missionary, havehelped us to understand the earlyChristian movement and have il­lumined some of the dark areas ofChristian mysticism.A humanist equally distinguishedin the fields of music and literature.A pre-eminent theoretical and prac-tical interpreter of jhe life and musicof Bach. Editor of standard editions2 Dr. Albert Schweitzer:"You'll have to tell me what to do atthe convocation. Remember, I'm onlya boy from the African Bush." (Seestory on page 17.)of Bach's works and an organist wellknown through concerts and record­ings which have resulted in a highand increasing appreciation of thecomposer's genius. An outstandinginterpreter of the literature and phil­osophy of Goethe whose diverseachievements he has helped our gen­eration to recognize, in ,part throughhis studies of Goethe's writings and inpart through his own exemplificationof Goethe's principles.A student of the history of religionswhose comparisons of Christian faithand non-Christian religions have re­sulted in greater understanding be­tween eastern and western peoples.A philosopher of the meaning ofcivilization. An early critic of the illsof our culture who saw clearly that itsfatal weakness is a lack of ethicalgrounding, the absence of a moralview of life. In his mind the absolutelove ethic of Jesus took the form ofa reverence for life which was ex­tended to include not only his fellow­men but also his fellow-creatures ofthe natural world.A Christian medical missionary tothe people of Equatorial Africa. Whofound in this form of life-affirmingservice the meaning for himself ofJesus' teachings. Through this workhe has portrayed for us the spirit ofChrist as the eternal contemporary ofman.In recognition of these achieve­ments, on behalf of the faculties ofthe University of Chicago, I presentAlbert Schweitzer for the degree ofDoctor of Laws.Ernest Cadman Colioell, Presidentof the University:By virtue of' the authority vestedin me by theBoard of Trustees, I con­fer the degree of Doctor of Laws,with all its rights and privileges, uponAlbert (Schweitzer - An interpreterwho has revived for his own genera­tion the vision of greatness; as schol­ar, interpreting the works of Jesus;as musician, interpreting the composi­tions of Bach; as humanist, interpret­ing the writings of Goethe; as histori­an, presenting in philosophic terms themeaning of history; and as Christianmedical missionary, rendering distin­guished service to Equatorial Africa.(Schweitzer's reply page 5)THE PROPHETS CONSIDER AMERICATHERE is one question about the, Goethe Bicentennial Celebrationand Festival at Aspen that comes,sooner or later, to the lips of everyman, woman and child who hears ofit. "Why, Aspen?" they ask.The best answer to this query, asto several of the more serious proposi­tions at Aspen, was given by ThorntonWilder, three-time Pulitzer prize win­ner and formerly a faculty member atthe University.Cornered by reporters at a pressinterview on the second day of theFestival, Wilder said that he and othermembers of the Goethe Foundationboard felt "the urban tempo of anycity would only dessicate the qualityof the festival. A certain austerity orwithdrawal was necessary in order tohave a concentration of purpose whichwould permit a full enjoyment of theclassical literature and music to beoffered.""Here in Aspen one can walkaround in quiet streets or mountainpaths thinking that in the afternoonhe will hear a concert by DorothyMaynor, or the Eroica Symphonyplayed by a full orchestra, or a lec­ture by Albert Schweitzer. If the festi­val were held in Cleveland, Detroit orany city it would have meant hotelliving, and a rapid pace. The climaxof the day would have come after aheavy dinner in the evening, with allof us probably dozing and yearningto get out of formal clothes."Wilder wasn't using a figure ofspeech, when he spoke of walkingalong mountain paths. He was outearly every morning, exploring thetrails among the foot hills of themountains which hedge Aspen inevery direction. The only complaintI heard him make about the wholefestival was the fact that he couldn'tget breakfast until 7: 30.Another reason for the choice ofAspen, Wilder confided, might havesomething to do with us reporters."One must also take into account that "Aspen's acoustics were good"By EMMETT DEDMONfactor of American life representedby some of those around me," he saidwith a sly smile. "The world is hun­gry for answers and in an effort to'make news' we might have foundourselves pressing and saying thingsthat in this more quiet. atmospherewould remain unsaid. The news ofwhat we do here will eventually findan audience. The acoustics of Amer­ica are in good repair, and thoughthey are equally as good for publiciz­ing fifth rate ideas as for the firstrate-they are excellent acoustics andword of what we say is bound to r�- .ceive its due notice."Why Goethe? Why Aspen?Wilder also had some enlighteningideas on why America should havea Goethe Festival. "We thought thisfestival should be held in America,"he told reporters, "because America ismost typical of the 20th century andwe are here to investigate the mean­ings Goethe had for this century.""America is always looking for'prophet voices' and certainly Goetheis a prophet voice for a century of sci­ence. Many people misinterpret hisdramatic poem, Faust entirely. They. see in Faust only a knowledge-hungryEmmett Dedmon, '39, who covered theGoethe Festival for the Chicago SUN-TIMES,now writes a lccal color story about it foralumni.Remembered as the able and lively MA­ROON reporter and editor of the late thirties,evidence that he still flourishes is to be foundin the Sep+ember TOMORROW magazine.The story, "Chicago's Left Bank," says: "Overat the SUN-TIMES book critic Emmett Ded­mon carries on in the Burton Rascoe ('15)­Harry Hansen ('09) tradition and has turnedout two novels, DUTY TO LIVE and NEVERSAY GOOD'BYE."'Emmett's first hook was written in a Ger­man prison camp after he had been shotdown from a flying fortress. The summer thatwar came 'he had planned to visit Switzerlandon a scholarship. Instead he became assist­ant foreign editor of the TI MES until he en­tered service.Emmett also has a weekly radio-interviewprogram, "Meet the Author," Sunday morn­ings over Chicago station WJJD.3 man scrabbling for the last fragmentof truth; in fact, the point of Faustis that we must be selective in ourgoals and aims so we do not destroywhat Goethe called the totality ofnature."Wilder couid have added that theidea for the celebration came fromthe University of Chicago. ArnoldBergstraesser, professor of German cul­ture, had marched into ChancellorHutchins' office, to inform him that1949 was the bicentennial of Goethe'sbirth and that "something ought tobe done about it."Since Professor Bergstraesser, inMr. Hutchins' words, is not an easyman to deflect, the Chancellor soonfound himself Chairman of the GoetheBicentennial Foundation. With himon the program were other facultymembers: Professor Bergstraesser wholectured on "Goethe and Antiquity,"Professor Emeritus G. A. Borgese whoopened the conference with a paperon "The Message of Goethe" whichwas so popular it was repeated at thesecond session and Robert Redfield,4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEwho participated in a forum on ethicsand politics. Mr. Hutchins concludedthe discussions with a lecture on"Goethe and the Unity of Mankind."But perhaps the most succinct replyto those who asked "Why Aspen?"was that of Barnet Novar, correspond­ent for the Denver Pasty who answered"Why not?" As far as I know, hewas never given an answer. Certainlynot by any of us who were there.One of the best memories of Aspenis that of leaving a seat if. Bero Saar­inen's tent-covered amphitheater andstarting up the aisle. The exits hadbeen so placed that from every open­ing one gazed straight up at a snow­clad mountain peak. The illusion wasimmediate that the whole Aspen val­ley was part of one vast auditorium.The festival had been called a"pilgrimage" and the term came in­stantly to mind as three times dailya long file of visitors, three and fourabreast, could be seen walking the 100'odd yards from the ticket gate to theirplaces in the amphitheater.Scholars Comment on AmericaOne of the most remarkable sur­prises, for a literary editor at least,was the consistency with which thescholars from abroad spoke of theirimpressions of America's great faith-a theme not particularly dominantin our country's literature.Jose Ortega y Gasset, probablyEurope's greatest philosopher, gavenew meaning to the term adolescence,as it is often applied to America. "Thething I notice immediately about yourcountry," he said, "is its historical age.I t has the power and vigor of adoles­cence."He went on to explain that he didnot use adolescence in the sense ofimmature or irresponsible. "I meanAmerica has the resiliency of you th­of a man about 20-and this is im­portant because you can absorb andsurvive the errors you may make alongthe way. America has faith in life,even without having reasons for thatfaith. America can transmit thatfaith to a Europe which today is inneed of reasons for wanting to existand survive."Stephen Spender, the English poetand translator of Goethe, who hasbeen teaching in this country for thepast two years, put it another way:"America is enormously stimulating to Europeans," he observed. "In gen­eral, it is the healthiest, soundestcountry in the world. And yet onemeets more unhappy people herethan anywhere else - people whohave relatives in mental institutions,those who have been divorced, thosewho have extraordinary personal trou­bles. Still, above this, a visitor noticesthe tremendous social faith of thepeople in their abilities and the greatmultitude of material improvements."Dr. Albert Schweitzer, at his pressinterview, had comments on bothAspen and America's spiritual quali­ties.What Would Goethe Say?"I have been asked," he reported,"if Goethe would have liked holdingthe festival here. I cannot say, forGoethe was a man of surprises. Wemay be sure that the question hewould ask is: 'Is this the thing weshould do?'"My answer to this question is yes.Aspen is beautifully situated and re­minds me of two previous visits I havemade-one to Oberammergau andone to Bayreuth. It is a setting wherewe can seek the larger meanings ofnature and of the greatness of crea­tion."Schweitzer brushed aside the chargethat America. was only a materialistnation. "The spiritual and materialare the same and I do not accept theKantian distinction between the two.Material things are necessary to usand the distinction between the two isat best only superficial. America is agreat spiritual force today. The mostimportant thing," he added, "is to ful­fill our duty. That is .Goethe's mes­sage for us."The veneration of the crowds atAspen for Dr. Schweitzer was amaz­ing. On his first day there, he cameto the amphitheater to hear ArturRubenstein play, but although he satin the rear of the auditorium, hecould not get away after the concertbecause of the horde of amateur pho­tographers and autograph seekerswhich surrounded him - plus thosewho only stood and stared. Nothingwas happening but until Dr. Schweit­zer moved, the crowd refused tomove; when he did get up the crowdmoved with him; it was as though asaint were there and the people con­tent merely to he in his presence. The first day Dr e • Schweitzer triedto eat in the hotel dining room buthis admirers, with the disdain thepublic shows only to the rights ofthose it admires most, refused to leavehim alone. Autographs, pictures-themonotonous parade to his table neverstopped. That evening he began tak­ing his meals in the small cottage nearWalter Paepcke's houe where he wasstaying, forgiving his well-intentionedpersecutors with an explanation thathe "only required a little bread andsoup, anyway."Though we had all been warned byChancellor Robert M. Hutchins thatSenor Ortega y Gassett was "one ofthe two greatest minds in Europe to­day," none. of us was quite preparedto be so overwhelmed by Senor Or­tega's erudition and personality alike.His speech was-with that of Thorn­ton Wilder-one of the two mostoriginal and provocative papers read.It's a cliche' that there are no newideas; but those who heard SenorOrtega will know that there are newideas and that they apply to our timesjust as Einstein's new ideas appliedto and explained further the funda­mental principles of physics.Aspen MiscellanyMore than the outstanding impres­sions of Schweitzer, Ortega andWilder, the memory that will be cher­ished by most visitors is that of thegrowing sense of participation andcomradeship they experienced duringthe festivaL The "unofficial sessions"-the poetry readings in the hotel lob­by, the unscheduled "panel discus­sions" by Rubenstein, Piatigorsky and. Milstein (in which it was forbiddento mention Goethe), the conferenceswith the visiting scholars and 'writers-all these bring to mind the' ad jec­tive of Professor Ernest Simon, fromthe Hebrew College at Israel.Professor Simon was very consciousof what he felt were deficiencies in hisEnglish pronunciation, though almostnone were obvious to his Americanlisteners."But your pronunciation is excel­lent," we protested."Excellent?" he replied. "No, I amafraid it is not. Perhaps one shouldjust say-charming."But Simon's English and Aspenalike were more than charming. Theywere excellent.ANOTHER YOUNGESTIF THE 1933 senior class had pickedthe "one most likely to succeed" itcould easily have been Paul A. Wag­ner. Paul has always been personable,alert, and ambitious, with a generoussupply of initiative.In his junior year Paul conceivedthe idea of a student March of Timewhich he called the Campus NewsReel. Tying these films in with styleshows from the State Street stores andold-time Charlie Chaplins, the Cam­pus News Reel made a modest profitand provided practical experience forthe future success of its founder.Of course, Paul was in other stu­dent activities. He wrote a Blackfriarshow, "One Foot in the Aisle," work­ed in dramatics, on the Cap & Gown,on the Senior Council, and playedice hockey. But his first love andmajor fascination was movie equip­ment-referred to by the scholarlyelite as visual aids.After graduation Paul joined thefaculty at University High School. Hemoved to Yale on a Carnegie Fel­lowship, where he received his mas-Schweitzer: ter's degree. The war years foundhim working for Uncle Sam. Heheaded the electrical training schoolat Newport Navy Training Stationand acted as educational adviser tothe Navy War College, where hehelped rewrite the curriculum.Out of service Paul returned to hisfirst love, visual aids, first with aneastern company, and "later with Belland Howell, where he became theright hand man of the president andPaul's schoolmate, Chuck Percy, '41.Back in Chicago Paul settled nearthe University and was soon servingon important alumni boards. He hasa deepseated enthusiasm for his AlmaMater.As June Reunion Week approachedand Association officers and commit­tees were hard at work, Paul wasmissing from his position on the exec­tive committee. This wasn't like Paul,who always carries his share of theload. We checked up. He was outof town; working late at the plant;delayed in an extended conference.Then, early in June, the news Paul A. Wagner '38. broke in everything from Time to theChicago Tribune: "Winter Park, Fla.,June 7 (AP ) -Rollins College todayannounced" the appointment of PaulA. Wagner, 31, Chicago educator­businessman as its president. He willbe the youngest president of any ac­credited liberal arts college in thecountry ...."Wagner will come to Rollins fromBell & Howell . . . where he has beenthe right hand man of Charles Percy,29, one of the youngest industrialpresidents in the United States .... "Paul showed his optimism (for out­serving the normal span of collegepresidents) and his practical approachto education by announcing that hewould ask this year's members of thesenior class to write him annually forthe next fifteen years to report on thevalues and weaknesses of a Rollins'degree.I THANK THE UNIVERSITYFROM my heart I thank the Uni­versity of Chicago and its officersfor the honor which they have be­stowed upon me in making me Doctorof Laws honoris causa. This honor hasa very special significance for me.First, because it attacnes me by a newbond to a country to which I am alsobound by a profound gratitude forthat which it has done during the Warfor the doctor who had on his shoul­ders the hospital at Lambarene.I had already gone through thefirst World War in my hospital atLambarene. So, seeing the secondwar coming, I took precautions tolay in supplies of medicines and dress­ings and other things required at myhospital, just as far as my funds per­mitted. These provisions sufficed forabout two years, but then they werealmost exhausted. The shelves in thedrug .room were becoming empty.Then just as I had asked myself howmy hospital could possibly continueto function, aid from America ar- rived-from the only country withwhich Equatorial Africa could havedirect relations, an aid that permittedme to continue my work. And nowto this bond of gratitude for materialaid, the University of Chicago hasjust added a spiritual. bond.It was with great regret that I leftmy teaching activity at the Univer­si ty of Strasbourg to go and do mywork in Africa. But I have been con­soled in a marvelous way by the factthat the Universities, during my staysin Europe, have given me the oppor­tunity to teach in their halls throughlectures which they have asked me togive. They have bound me to themalso by the degrees which they haveconferred on me. And now you, inwhat we in Europe call the NewWorld, have begun to act toward mein the same fashion.You recall to me that you not onlythink of me as a doctor, but also. asone who has worked in the domainsof theology and philosophy, and who5 still works in them. In recalling thisto me, you encourage me, and yourencouragement comes at a momentwhen I need it.For ten years now, .because of thewar and the post-war conditions, Ihave had to lay aside the theologicaland philosophical work which I somuch want to complete. I was com­pletely absorbed by the work to bedone at the hospital and could notreturn to Europe to rest and to givemyself to the work which I wantedto finish. And at this moment whenI have need' of all my courage toundertake again the work in this otherdomain, you give me a degree whichties me to your University. It is as ifyou had realized that I have need ofencouragement to undertake againthis work which must be done along­side my medical tasks.Please accept my assurances thatthis encouragement is precious to me,and that I thank you for it from thebottom of my heart.HancockAdamsDavis Margaret Campbell Hancock, '11, exec­utive secretary of the Chicago CitizensSchools Committee, is a geologist of suf­ficient reputation to have been the firstwoman member of the American Associa­tion of Petroleum Geologists. In additionto her numerous civic activities through theyears, Mrs. Hancock has earned this cita­tion by the untiring, consistent, and thedetermined leadership she gave to freeingthe Chicago school system from the de­moralizing controls of partisan politics. Shehelped carry to a successful conclusion thesignificant improvements which led to anaward of merit. in March, 1949.Olga Adams, '24, Director of the SeniorKindergarten Laboratory School, Univer­sity of Chicago, has devoted her full lifeto giving youngsters a wholesome and in­spiring outlook on a complicated and try­ing world. To thousands of alumni whohave cherished the ambition to have theirchildren sit at her feet or play in the fas-cinating environment she provides, it is notnecessary to itemize her committee andboard services dealing with children (blind,retarded, problem), which have given hera national reputation. With her influencebeing felt in generations of men and wom­en circling the globe, none is more worthyof this citation for a useful citizen.Ralph W. Davis, ' 16, partner of Paul H.Davis and Company, Chicago, has carriedcivic responsibility on both shoulders, inChicago, center of his business activities,where he accepts hs share of civic duties,and in his home town, Geneva, Illinois,where he accepts his share of civic duties,ship for the Community Chest (as chair-man since 1943), and the Community Hos­pital of Geneva. He served as alderman inGeneva for eight years, and as chairmanof the Fox River Chapter of the AmericanRed Cross. Nena Wilson Badenoch, '12, Director ofRadio Relations for Crippled Children andAdults, has always assumed civic responsi­bility in Newton, Massachusetts, her for­mer home, and in Oak Park, her presenthome, and in Chicago, her business head­quarters. A mother of three children, shehelped organize the first Girl Scout Troopin River Forest and went on to organizeothers, served on the school board for sixyears, the library board for three, workedwith the Y.W.C.A., the Red Cross, theWomen's Club, helped organize a nurserytraining center, and used her talents forpublicity for numerous worthy projectsboth in Massachusetts and Illinois.James Mount Nicely, '20, Vice President,First National Bank of the City of NewYork, has been civicly generous with histalents which he has 'shared with the UnionSettlement for 20 years; the Y.M.C.A.; thePresbyterian Church, both internationallyand locally; the American Friends ofALUMNIFrance; the Chapin School of New York;and other worthy civic groups. He is atrustee of the American University ofBeirut, the Teachers Insurance and An­nuity.Association, the Institute of Interns;tional Education, and the GuggenheimFoundation. .Lloyd P. Johnson, '23, a practicinglawyer in Minneapolis, has numerous civicaccomplishments to his credit. One of hismost important contributions to his citybegan unobtrusively in 1930 when he Or­ganized the Minneapolis Citizens Commit­tee on Public Education. This was a moveto correct devastating political controls ofthe public schools. F or well over a decade,the first four years under his presidency,the Committee carried on to final victory.As treasurer of the Urban League since1933, he has done much to make it anBadenochNicely6 Johnson Smitheffective community organization.

S. MarineCorps. He received his Ph. D. in 1930, andhas become one of the leading scholars inhis field. Respected by his fellow towns­men and generations of students, ProfessorSmith has contributed his talents to activi­ties apart from his professional interests,including the local library, the state libraryassociation, conferences on Canadian­American affairs, and has participated inpolitical activities to improve state andnational government.ITAllONSClara Allen Rahill, '12, Caldwell, NewJersey, with the responsibilities of raisingfive children, went beyond her home togive them and the young people of Cald­well, the best environment possible.Through the' past 25 years she has givenintelligent and inspiring leadership to theParent Teachers Association at all levels,the Women's Club, the League of WomenVoters, and the Board of Education, whileconducting a nursery school part of thetime. The first woman elected to the localschool board, she introduced student coun­seling, a dental clinic, arid a personnel com­mittee, and was chairman of the Boardfor two terms.Paul G.

Swiftretired as chairman of the Board ofTrustees after 26 effective and de­voted years in this office, the AlumniAssociation determined to express itsappreciation of this and many otherservices by presenting alumnus Swiftwith a special citation. The plan waskept confidential and it came as asurprise to Mr. Swift.At the annual Alumni Assembly,President Baer opened the leather­bound citation and read:TOHAROLD HIGGINS SWIFTGreat good wishes.Your conspicuously successful service asa member of the Board of Trustees of theUniversity of Chicago since 1914, and as itschairman for 26 years, is a source of realsatisfaction to your fellow alumni.

I had accepted a visit­mg professorship at theNational Tsing Hua University andW�n�ed to at least begin that work atPel�mg. My wife was eager to meetagam with our good friends of thef .acuIty and resume work with Pro-feSsor Fei Hsiao-Tung on his book onthe social revolution of China. AndJames, 13 years old, was quite pre­pared to travel and see something ofthe Orient.Shanghai is a city that is always un­easy. Its population of five millionexploited and exploiters, its dyingthousands and profiting hundreds, liesexposed to the consequences of everyWar, every economic dislocation.

Florabelle Jon lunchedwith us at the hotel, a good ideaSInce she had been unable to buy any­thing for breakfast in Shanghai. Thenext day we were in turn entertainedby the University of Chicago Alumni?lub of Shanghai, Mr. T. L. Wang,19, PhD '22, President. The food wasvery good and I spoke about the leadtaken by our University in studyingproblems of world government andthe freedom of the press.Our American friends in Shanghai were more uneasy about our journeynorth than were our Chinese friends.Peiping might fall to the Communistsat any time, they said, and then wemight not 'be able to get back.We flew to Peiping that Sunday.While I rested from a cold in a hotelbed, my wife and son went out to theuniversity north of the city. ThereProfessor Fei and his family gavethem joyous welcome. They are de­lightful, generous and natural people.My wife and son found their wayback in the darkness of the city in ex­cellent spirits. They had renewedconnections with Peiping friends andhad felt their goodness once again.During the day, the value of moneywe had brought from Shanghai fellto one-fourth its value. Just one day'in the hotel cost 50 American dollars.On the next, Fei came with Profes­sor Quentin Pan to bring us all toTsing Hua.

Wilson is Chairman of the Board of the Standard Oil Com­pany (Indiana) and a Trustee of the University. Therefore, he was uniquely qualified tospeak for sCience, industry and the University at the cornerstone laying of the University'snew Nuclear Institutes Building on June 21, 1949.He. paid high tribute to his boyhood friend, Arthur H. Compton, Distinguished ServiceProfessor and Chairman of the Department of Physics during the war years. Dr. Comptonplayed a vital part, "both in the early development of nuclear science and in the successfulcompletion, on schedule, of the atomic 'bomb ••• one of the two or three really Indls­pensable men in "'he whole program." But for 'him Chicago would probably not have becomethe wartime and peacetime center for nuclear research.Mr. Wilson commended Chancellor Hutchins, to whom "these nuclear institutes owe theirexistence," and went on to say:CHANCELLOR Hutchins knewthat the large group of top­ranking scientists, who had achievedso much by working together at theUniversity of Chicago, would quicklyscatter at the end of the war unlessa really promising program couldbe set up promptly under privateauspices.Such a program would have to in­clude adequate facilities for work ina very expensive field, good salaries,and above all, complete freedom toexplore the many fundamental andnonmilitary frontiers which nuclearresearch had opened up in every di­rection. He persuaded his Board ofTrustees to take a tremendous gamblein committing the University to hirea large group of these men and tosupply the necessary facilities on hisassurance that he was confident ofbeing able to secure the necessaryfinancial support if the three Insti­tutes were set up. With the help ofDr. Hogness and others he has been,as you know, outstandingly success­ful in securing support from industryfor fundamental research on a scalebeyond anything which had ever beenseen in this country or elsewhere.Over Three Million DollarsEight industrial companies have al­ready agreed to contribute $50,000per year for five years toward the sup­port of all three Institutes, and twelveother companies have committedthemselves to support one institute ata cost of $20,000 per year. Others are needed; and have been joining al­most every month to help support thisoutstanding venture.It must be emphasized that thissupport is on a basis far different fromthe usual industry support of univer­sity research. aimed directly at thesolution of problems of importance toa given company or industry.The members of the Institute maketheir contributions without either theright or the desire to have any sayas to the problems to be attacked, ex­cept that they are to be for funda­mental work in the broad field offundamental nuclear science. The onlyrecompense of the members is in theright to attend quarterly meetings atwhich the progress of various lines ofinvestigation is reviewed, and in therealization that they are doing theirpart to support a well-organized pro­gram to add to our store of basicknowledge in a highly important newfield.American' industry has been out­standing in supporting and gettingresults from applied research and de­velopment work, but in doing this they have built largely on basic knowl ..edge developed in university labora_tories both at home and abroad. It isnow coming to . realize that, particu,larly with the drying up of research inmost European universities, appliedresearch workers are using up our su p_ply of basic scientific knowledge fasterthan it is being added to. Indust-ryhas real responsibility to aid in rern. ...edying this situation, especially in afield where the costs of equipment areso staggering that industrial supportis essential.Help Without DominationI have emphasized the fact thatthis research is being carried out un­der private, as distinct from govern,ment, auspices. The Governmentthrough the Atomic Energy Commle,sion is, of course, carrying out a largeamount of fundamental research innuclear science at various laboratoriessuch as the old and new Argonne lab­oratories, but no thoughtful personwants to see a government monopolyin this field except in so far as it per­tains to the production of weaponsand other devices for military use.Many scientists are unwilling towork in government laboratories. withall the red tape, investigations, chargesand countercharges which seem in­evitable in a field of this kind. Fur­thermore, many problems of scientificinterest would not be undertaken insuch government laboratories. Forn.,nately the Atomic Energy Commissionand other branches of our governmentrecognize the need for private researchin this field, and Dr. Hutchins and hisassocia tes have also been successful inobtaining large contributions from Va­rious government agencies for thebuildings, equipment, and support ofsome of these programs-but againwithout government control of thespecific direction which the researchesThe international pool of pureresearch is drying up i Americanindustry must help replenish it10THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 11are to take. Cooperation between theInstitute and the Argonne laboratoriesis helpful and stimulating to both andavoids unnecessary duplication.I wish there were time to mentionsome of the interesting lines of workwhich are already showing results inthe. hands of the 65 eminent scien­tists, including three Nobel Prize win-.ners, who are actively engaged in va­rious lines of work even before theirlarge-scale equipment is completed.However, to single out a few wouldbe unfair to the others, and in a fewyears it would be evident I had notpicked out the most important ones.On the frontiers of knowledge, inthe realms of the unknown, there areno guideposts or road signs-not evenan admonition from the boss. In fact,it is almost essential that there be noboss in the usual sense. My experienceindicates that the most effective direc­tion of scientific research must comeprimarily from the men who are do­ing the work themselves. This is onereason why scientific research mustbe unfettered. Both business men andgovernment officials are increasinglyaware that any attempt to dominateor control basic research will merelyquench the spark of originality whichflourishes only in an atmosphere offreedom.Can Business Afford It?Sometimes I hear people say thatuniversity research is impractical, thatit is too theoretical. If it is good, itis theoretical. Applied research, if itis good, is practical.But can business afford to supportwork which is abstract, which doesnot have immediate practical conse­quences, which does not lead to aproduct which can be put in apackage and sold at a profit?Can business afford it? The realquestion is: can business afford not tosupport such work?Our present danger is not that theachievements of basic science will re­main unutilized, but that pure re­search will not be adequately sup­ported. The great technological andinventive achievements in Americawhich have brought to its people the. h i g h est material standard everachieved may lead us to complacen­cy, hut we must not forget that wehave in the past relied heavily on basic scientific work which was done nothere, but in Europe.When we think of Detroit and ofthe early motor makers who broughtthe automobile from an exciting curi­osity to a practical mode of trans­portation for everyone, we rememberHenry Ford. Weare apt to forgetthat the internal combustion enginewhich made Ford's work possiblerested upon the' fundamental studiesof Otto and others in Germany. Weare inclined to forget that the electricstarter, which marked the beginningof the widespread acceptance of theautomobile as a common conveyance,in turn rested upon basic discoveriesin electricity extending back to Watt,Faraday, and Ampere, none. of whom,as it happened, was an American.Science Turns to AmericaIt is perhaps significant that duringsome fifty years of Nobel Prizes inphysics, chemistry, and medicine; only20 were awarded to the United States;while Europe received 119. Germanyalone was awarded 36. In the pastwe in America have been largely anation of inventors, It is only in re­cent years that we have started to be­come a nation of scientists.Robert E. WilsonFar-seeing business men recognizethat progress draws continuingly upona reservoir of basic knowledge andthat this reservoir supplied in the pastfrom' Europe must now be maintainedlargely by what is done here in Amer­ica. The great research laboratoriesof Europe have been ravaged first bygovernment domination and totalitar­ian dictatorship and then by war it­self. I t is because of the importance ofbasic research that. business is contrib­uting so large a share to the supportof the fundamental research in' theseInstitutes. The Government by sup­port of specific projects also contrib­utes. By this means the scientists arein a position that no single group candominate or influence the course oftheir experiments or studies. Thusfreedom of research is maintained, andthe primary condition for real pro­gress is satisfied.To witness on one day the dedica­tion of three major' laboratories, in­cluding large and elaborate acceleratorinstallations, is surely an impressivesight. One might almost think thatsuch trail blazing is unparalleled inuniversity-sponsored research. Perhapsit is, except at the University of Chi­cago. It is of interest to note thatmore than fifty years ago, on the fifthanniversary of the University, the cor­nerstones were laid for buildings de­voted to anatomy, botany, physiology,and zoology, Even in 1896 this Uni­versity was on the frontiers of sci­entific advancement, and its accom­plishments in the biological scienceshave been in keeping with the leader­ship it assumed.In laying those cornerstones fiftyyears ago, Mr. John D. Rockefeller,the founder of the University, spokeof his gifts to it as the best investmenthe had ever made. We stand today atan equally new departure in the phys­ical sciences. By underwriting the costsof these buildings from the generalfunds, the University expresses itsfaith in the ability of its scientists andthe vision of industry. I believe thatthe business firms which are support­ing the Institutes will be able to ex­press similar sentiments as through theyears these Institutes contribute tothe advancement of knowledge and tothe betterment of mankind.The arrangement here whereby agreat university is aided by businessand by government but not dominatedby either is one which I hope to seeextended in other institutions. I amcertain that business men are comingto have an increasingly long-rangeview of the importance of basic re­search and that business will do itspart to see that such research is ade­quately supported and, above all,kept free.THE INVESTIGATIONCONCLUDEDBy WILLIAM V. MORGENSTERN '20, JD '22THE legislative investigation intopossible subversive activities atthe University and at Roosevelt Col­lege so long ago fizzled into obscuritythat the only justification for report­ing its final-aspects is to make the rec­ord complete for the alumni. So inaneand ridiculous did the proceedings be­come that the members of the legisla­ture wearied of them. When one ofthe die-hards wanted to use the floorof the House for a last bid at the head­lines, a fellow member arose to sug­gest if he wanted to say anything moreon the subject that he hire a hall,where he would be without the pro­tection of legislative privilege.The second public hearing of theCommission was telescoped into thelate afternoon and evening of May19. This hearing obviously was heldto rehabilitate J. B. Matthews, theformer fellow traveler who was hiredto conduct the investigation, and hischief witness, Howard Rushmore,former Communist member who isnow a Hearst reporter.Five members of the faculty, whoseaffidavits answered Rushmore's alle­gations in the hearing on April 23,appeared for questioning by Mat­thews. They were Robert J. Havig­hurst, professor of education;Malcolm Sharp, professor of law;Rexford G. Tugwell, professor ofpolitical science; Harold C. Urey,professor of chemistry, and ErnestW. Burgess, professor of sociology.Mr. Laird Bell, Chairman of theBoard of Trustees, who transmittedthe affidavits, also was invited toappear. Two other faculty membersassailed by Rushmore, James LutherAdams, professor of religious ethics,Meadville Theological Seminary andthe Federated Theological Faculty,and Wayne McMillen, professor of And there thegreat probe endedsocial service administration, did notappear because they were out of resi­dence, and had left before the hear­ing was scheduled, to work elsewhere.Matthews was much more bellig­erent and in louder voice than hewas in the first group of hearings,April 21-23; He also was much moreirritable, and when challenged by awitness or a commission member, be­came angry and confused. What wasplainly bothering Matthews was hisjudgment of the effect of the affi­davits· on the credibility of Rush­more's testimony. Since Matthews isa professional red hunter, and Rush­more is his frequent collaborator,prestige is important. Rushmorethe reporter, had an unsigned storyin the New York Journal-Americanof May 20, quoting Matthews in vin­dication of Rushmore, the witness.Matthews' purpose throughout thequestioning was to demonstrate thatRushmore had evidence for his al­legations.Half-truths are misleadinqThe best answers to that effortwere provided by Mr. Sharp andMr. Urey. In response to Matthews'inquiry as to whether - Mr. Sharpquestioned the accuracy of Rush­more's testimony with respect to twoorganizations, Mr. Sharp replied:"I should like to say that in myjudgment, the testimony of the sortgiven by Mr. Rushmore is syste­matically misleading .... I think ifMr. Rushmore had been a carefulman-I think, indeed, if he had been12 Morgensternan honest man-he would have paidsome attention to these public state­ments. He might even have readsome of my articles before insinuat.ingly charging, as he has in otherhearings, by innuendo, that I holda position which I don't hold at all.. . . I should like to find stronger­words to express my distaste for Mr.Rushmore's type of testimony. Ifone says a lawyer has gone to prison,but it turns out that he has goneto prison to consult a client, it is avery different story. The half-truthis a very well-known way of rnis­leading." Mr. U rey summed up f01Matthews the value of Rushmore'sallegations: "It is partial testimony,and the partiality makes it whollo/false."So frantic was the effort to givethe vestige of respectability to Rush­more's testimony thai Matthews hadhim popping in and out of the wit.ness' chair all through the session.Most of Rushmore's previous testi­mony corresponded so literally to 3mimeographed compilation of "front"memberships issued by the "NationalCouncil for American Education,"that the source of his alleged fac�is indisputable. The National Coun.cil was founded in 1946 by one AileDAlderson Zollo The publicationFriends of Democracy's Battle, de:scribes 2011 as "an old-time Cough'linite, Jew-baiter, apologist for Fascist causes, and alleged extortionist.tZoll was former head of the novdefunct "American Patriots, Inc.,�which the Attorney General -:- thesource so dear to Matthews as a�authority-listed as fascist. WheZol1's association with the NationCouncil was exposed in the summ�of 1948, most of the prominent people who had been Zo11's "fronts,ranging from Gen. Jonathan ITHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEWainwright to Gene Tunney, rushedfor the exits.Matthews revealed his design atthe opening of the session when hebegan his questioning of Mr. Bell.The inquiries, interlarded with bom­bast and assertions, were directedparticularly to a statement of Mr.Adams. When the affidavits wereprepared Mr. Adams already had left.for Massachusetts, and discussionwith him as to the facts was conductedover the telephone. On the basis ofthese conversations, a statement wasdrafted, and sent to him to executein affidavit form. An unsigned copy,to which was attached a notationpointing out it was not an executedaffidavit, and would be replaced byone as soon as possible, was sent withthe other affidavits to the Commis­sion. This haste was necessary becauseof the deadline which had been setby . the Commission for the U niver­sity's answer. When his' affidavit wasreceived, Mr. Adams had changedone of his answers, saying that he hadsigned a protest against the motionpicture, T he I ron Curtain, al­though his unsigned statement saidbe had no recollection of so doing.He explained in a letter that in thelong-distance telephone call he hadnot heard the word "film" used, andso did not recognize what the chargewas. until he saw the word in thedraft.BaHle of the headlines�The change in itself was of nogreat significance, for the Bible ofMr. Matthews - the AttorneyGeneral's list-did not include thisprotest as subversive. Nor was itMatthews' contention that the Com­rnission had been misled. He shoutedthat the press of the country hadbeen misled, a matter, which if true,would have been of no consequenceto the Commission unless it was moreinterested in the battle of the head­lines than the validity of its case.Matthews also boomed at Mr. Bellabout various other incidental aspectsof the affidavits, such as the useof the word "suspected" as a descrip­tion of the organizations on theAttorney General's list, and he intro­duced an optional reading from Rob­ert S. Lynd's Pattern of AmericanCulture, used in the Social SciencesII course, to prove that students werebeing indoctrinated. The substance of this excerpt was that whatever any­one thought of the rightness orwrongness of the Soviet Union, socialscientists could not but approve ofthe fact that Communists made theirci tizens take part in the political ac­tivities of the regime, rather thanpermitting an apathetic attitude.With Rushmore being sandwichedin between the interrogation of thefive faculty members, the hearingproceeded until almost midnight.Rushmore in these encores submittedhis "evidence" '--:'photostatic copies ofletterheads, pamphlets, and excerptsfrom The Daily Worker. He also in­troduced new "evidence" againstindividuals not present in order "tocomplete the record," as Matthewsquaintly put it. The significance ofthis effort can be indicated by thefact that little, if any, of the stuffwhich Rushmore and Matthews of­fered would be admitted as evidencein any court.The faculty members handledthemselves ably against the kind ofcase which Matthews had, a reviewof their alleged front associations.Mr. Burgess made Matthews so un­happy with his answers that Mat­thews undertook unsuccessfully tobully him. His answer to Matthews'inquiry as to whether he chargedRushmore with bad faith was thathe charged him with bad judgment.Mr. Havighurst started out by de­manding of Chairman Broyles if therewere any suspicion of subversiveteaching on his part. "That questionhas not been raised," Sen. Broyles ad­mitted. In response to a similar ques­tion from Mr. Sharp, Sen. Broylessaid he was not being charged withteaching communism. The same an­swer was given to Mr. Vrey. Theexamination of Mr. Tugwell was con­ducted warily. Mr. Urey, as handywith a word as with an isotope, tookthe investigation away from Mat­thews as the final witness.The Nobel Prize scientist concludedhis lecture to Matthews with a state­ment about the University, "I am anewcomer to the V niversity of Chi­cago. I came there after the war, in1945. (Mr. Vrey's war-time work onthe Midway was with the ManhattanDistrict, U. S. Army organizationwhich administered the production ofthe bornb). The fame of the institu­tion and what it stands for has beencontributed to only in a very slight 13degree by my efforts. It is one ofthe great universities of the world.I t is so regarded the world over.In my years there I have inti­mately associated with the membersof the staff of that organizationand it is strictly loyal and American.In my years there I have inti­better from the people of Illinois thanthis investigation."No reflection on any professorMatthews summed up by assertingthat "in no single point did Mr. Rush­more lack the documentation for histestimony. Every statement of affilia­tion of the professors of the V niversityof Chicago who appeared here hasbeen supported by a document whichMr. Rushmore has brought and inno case has there been a single chal­lenge of Mr. Rushmore's good faithin presenting the testimony of thesefront organizations." This was cer­tainly an ex cathedra vindication ofRushmore, whose good faith had beenchallenged to his face by professorsBurgess, Sharp and U rey.Senator Roland Libonati com­mented immediately on Matthews'statement. "Mr. Chairman, I wouldra ther that we use the term 'identifiedwith.' Professors here did take thewitness stand and testify that theywere not members of organizationshut participated in some isolatedmeetings and sponsored them. Thereis no reflection on any professor sofar as has been brought out by theexamination, which was thorough re­lative to participation as active mem­bers in the Communist Party. Therehas been some evidence producedhere which indicated that in yearspast some of them were active inmovements that correlated with theirideas concerning certain persons towhom they were antagonistic as dic­tators."I feel in the honesty of the recordthat the Chair should inform the menwho came here, including Mr. Bell,that we are very well satisfied withtheir testimony and their direct hon­esty of purpose in facilitating this in­vestigation and hearing and placingbefore us factual data that will bevery valuable to the Commission."The following morning the Com­mission met and voted unanimouslythat the report to the General Assem­bly be in the form of the exacttranscript of the testimony, and thae14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEno comment would be neccessary, "in­asmuch as the testimony speaks foritself." The procedure, however, wasnot followed. Rep. Charles J. Jenkinsobserved publicly that the action ofthe Commission gave a "clean billof health" to both Chicago and Roose­velt, a judgement that irked ChairmanBroyles. So, June 11, Mr. Broyles andten other members, public and legisla­tive, issued a "statement" to the press.The actual filing of the testimony wasdone on June 16. Senator Broyles ex­plainedvthat "since another memberof the Commission has given out astatement, I feel that possibly, I, asChairman, and joined by other mem­bers of the Commission, should issuea brief statement."This was a singular document. Itbegan with a vague recital of "thestorm O'f opposition" which the Com­mission had encountered-all attribu­ted to subversive forces- and contin­ued to' report "activity that could beclassed as undesirable in an institutionof learning," such as the existence ofa Communist Club, the refusal of thepresident of the club to answerwhether he was a member of theCommunist Party, or to say what hewould do in the event of war withRussia; the membership of facultymembers in "front" organizations;their temeri ty in refusing to agreewith the Attorney General's list.There were a series of recommenda­tions. Any student who refused toanswer whether he is a member ofthe Party, or any student who admit­ted he was and who said he would re­fuse to fight against Russia, should beexpelled, "in order to' prevent the con­tamination of other students in thestudent body." Personal investigationwas recommended to' the trustees andother officials of colleges and univer­sities into the "conditions relative tothe student activities," and the affilia­tion of their faculty members. So wasthe banning of Communist Clubs;prohibition of the sale of any Com­munist propaganda, denial of the useof bulletin boards or campus publica­tions to advertise meetings involvingCommunists, denial of facilities' forsuch meetings; a survey of textbooksand required readings to eliminate"material which advocates the theoriesand doctrines of Communism or othersubversive doctrine" ; firing of any!f-culty member who refuses to resignfrom known Communist Qr Com- munist front organizations, "as listedby the Justice Department of theUnited States"; careful investigationof any new organization which hasin its membership persons who havebeen members of "questionable organ­izations" -presumably to prevent rec­ognition to' the new fronts.The statement continues: "Afternearly two years Qf CQntacts with topofficials of our State and Nation,which included many conferenceswith people in all walks of life, wehave come to the conclusion that:The truth being taught by our educa­tors, the truth being preached by ourclergymen, and sufficient laws enactedto' control those who will not he edu­cated or have no faith in their GQd,will be the most sucessful way to' com­bat this organized conspiracy and 'redmenace' in our midst.Or no tax exemption"We, therefore, recommend to' theSixty-sixth (the next biennial) Gen­eral Assembly, that any school or uni­versity that continues to employprofessors or teachers who have beenand continue to' be affiliated withsubversive, Communist, or Communistfront organizations; or any school oruniversity that recognizes a studentorganization, those organizations listedby the Justice Department as subver­sive, Communist, or Communist frontorganizations, shall be denied taxexemptions. Regarding tax-supportedschools and universities, it shall bethe duty of the Board of Trustees, thegoverning officials, and the employingboard to' comply with these recom­mendations, If the Board Qf Trustees,the governing officials, or the employ­ing body refuse to comply, it is rec­ommended that such Board ofTrustees, governing officials, or em­ploying body be, by law, removedfrom office. If the present statutes donot cover this situation, it is recom­mended that the necessary laws beenacted."Barry issues statementAt the same time that the Broylesstatement was released, Sen. NormanBarry issued one of his own, muchmore succinct. "This Commission wasdirected to' investigate 'subversiveactivities.' It found none. NO' facultymember was even charged with teach­ing or saying anything subversive.When at least three professors asked whether they were charged with beingsubversive, Chairman Broyles statedin open hearing they were not socharged. The professors who testifiedstated their opposition to CQmmunism."The statement of ChairmanBroyles and others rests in part onthe discredited notion that member­ship in an organization makes a manguilty of all the thoughts and actsQf other members. But at no time didany witness or any commission memberdare assert that any faculty memberhad engaged in subversive activitiesor even harbored principles otherthan those wholly American. As to thestudent Communist Club, there ishonest and sincere difference ofQPInIOn about permitting students ofany political belief to exercise ourfreedom to assemble peaceably. NO'law forbids it now. It has yet to beprQven that suppression will reallyhelp in the battle against CQmmunism.The whip is not always the bestteacher. . . ."Sen. Barry concluded by PQintingout that the University of Chicagois run by its trustees, who "haveintelligence, ability, and resPQnsibility.They know the University and itswork. They know its problems. They,know all these things better than themembers of the Commission. I Wantno part in dictating to' these men howto' do their job. TO' do so is both unwiseand uri-American."Jenkins issues statementTwo days later, Rep. Jenkins, whohad been ill, released another minorityreport. Pointing out the serious threatof Communist infiltration, Rep. J en­kins said, "We do not agree, however,with the findings of the majority intheir press statement on, the investi ..gation ... We were in continualattendance, at the hearings, we have­studied the exhibits and affidavits:submitted, and we hold that the find­ings of the majority in their pressrelease are not in accord with theknown facts and are not supported byevidence."I t is impossible to' cite any word,written or voiced, by any professorQf any officer Qf either institutiQnwhich indicates that any one of themever made a statement which couldbe regarded in any way as subversive. . . J. B. Matthews, designated bythe Commission to be chief interroga­tor of witnesses, introduced through-THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEout his examination a number of ac­cusations against the two institutionsand members of the faculty. He wasnot under oath, and sought by cleverinsinuation and innuendo to accom­plish by indirection what he failedto prove ..."If Communistic indoctrinationexists on either campus, it would re­veal itself frequently in documentedform and the investigators would havesomething more to show than a fewparagraphs written by a Columbiaprofessor and used as optional read­ing. Among the many students, pastand present, there are certainly thou­sands of loyal Americans who, if theyhad detected any subversive teachingswould eagerly have taken the oppor­tunity to testify ... "Rep. Jenkins made a four-pointsummary: "1) No member of theadministration, faculty or staff ofeither institution has been shown tobe a Communist. 2) There is noproof of any attempt by the facultymembers of the two institutions toindoctrinate students with Commun­ism. 3) There is a Communist Clubamong students of each institution,one having eleven members and theother 'about ten ... ' We think theseclubs should be disbanded and notagain reformed under any othername. It is our belief, however, thatMarxism should better be studied inclassrooms in relation to other formsof government where it can be criti- cized and appraised . . . It seems tous that the way to expose Com­munism is to expose Communists.The widespread smears of personswho are not Communists or evenCommunist sympathizers simply di­vert attention from the real dangers.We can even be lulled into the mis­taken idea that attacks on loyalAmericans are of some help in pre­serving democracy. 4) One of thegreatest safeguards for perpetuationof American -, ideals lies in scholasticfreedom in our universities and col­leges. The University of Chicago is anoutstanding example of the wisdomof this principle .... Free interchangeof ideas, free research, and the rightof faculty members to engage withoutrestraint in activities dictated by theirjudgment and conscience have en­abled the University to performpriceless services to mankind in manyfields .... The University is one ofthe great institutions of the world andit should have the unstinted supportof the citizens of its home state. . "Horsley issues a statementThere was still one more burst ofaccusation left to come. The Broylesbills were languishing unheeded inthe House, the appropriation for apermanent Commission had beenoverwhelmingly beaten in the Senate,and the innuendos of Matthews andRushmore had been thoroughly at­tacked in the press. The investiga- 15tion had been a fiasco. Pattering toits succor came Rep. G. WilliamHorsley, author of the resolution forthe investigation, with a booklet giv­ing his analysis of the testimony,"together with comments and addi­tional material collected."Since G. William was not a memberof the Commission, and had not evenattended all its meetings, this was asomewhat extraordinary procedure.The analysis and comments addednothing; the booklet was largely acollection of partial quotations fromthe works of one Robert M. Hutch­ins, and a compilation of newspaperclippings to prove "crime and im­morality" (the old Dilling theme offree love and communism) at theUniversity by citing Heirens, a girlkilled in an automobile accident, astudent slugged, three Quakers whowere conscientious objectors, andother caS66 of like tenor. Mr. Horsleycarefully took steps to see that hisopus was privileged,. filing it with theClerks of the House as an officialdocument so that he would not beheld personally responsible. The book­let was ineffective III attractingattention.And there the great probe ended,without Mat t he w s eve r gettingaround to filing, as he had shoutedhe would, the "Communist records"of the five clergymen of various faithsat the University who had come toits defense.During reunion week alumni visited the penthouse home of the Bernard Berelsons (Dean, GraduateLibrary School) at the new faculty apartments: stepped from the living room to the terrace for aMidway view of the quadrangles.16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINERobert M. StrozierWe said to 'Bob Strozier: "After the staffhas gone home, the outside door has beenclosed, and the te'lephone stops ringing, whydon't you sit back and tell us some of yourexperiences and reactions as dean of stu­dents?" So 'he does and will each month.To make our first deadline, Bob wrote thiscolumn from behind the porch screens atLong take, Wisconsin, where he was takinga late summer vacation with his. wife andthree youngsters.I CAN look through the screen andsee Bob and Chuck fishing for bluegills. There is a light fog this morn­ing, and everything is so peaceful andcalm it hardly seems possible that in initiative of the students in the de­velopment of new programs; keeptheir records, give them examinations,and even, at times, discipline them!Their energy and initiative areboundless. You have doubtless seenRadio Midway and the Arts andCrafts studio. The students have de­veloped Radio Midway entirely bythemselves. U sing telephone wiresfor transmission, they have devisedthe mechanical apparatus for reach­ing all the College Houses; using theirfertile imaginations they have organ­ized musical and intellectual programswhich might well be examined withcare by many commercial stations.The Arts and Crafts studio was de­veloped so intelligently that the Col­lege authorities have since used it inthe Humanities courses'. It still re­mains a student-centered project, how­ever, where those who are interestedmay work independently at painting,sculpture, and the crafts. They willbe having another exhibit in IdaNoyes this fall, and you must see it.I hope you will see the junior var­sity teams and the house and frater­nity intramural as well as the inter­collegiate teams. You probably sawREFLECTIONS AFTER FIVEa month my charges will number sev­eral thousand. in addition to my con­stant three. This peace is delightfulfor a brief period, but the excitementof October with the opening of theUniversity is for me the high pointof the entire year.Everything is now set for the au­tumn. John Davey has mailed thematerial to new students about theplacement tests; John Bergstresser hassent the handbook; Jane Simmons,Student Union President, has sent abooklet about social activities; andlast but Jar from least, the Chancellorhas sent each new student a personalletter of welcome.Much of our work must be donein advance, for the entire office of theDean of Students is a service organi­zation. We process for admission jchoose the resident heads for theHouses; safeguard the health of allthe students; attempt to provide themwith wise personal and academiccounsel; construct and direct whole­some activities, social, athletic, andgeneral, yet allow for the individual ROBERT M� STROZIERDean of Studentsthe recent articles in the metropolitanpress where Paul Derr was quoted assaying that participation in athleticsat the University is greater now thanit ever has been before.There are too many activities at theUniversity to discuss in one letter.Later I do want to tell you about theothers.Our jobs would be infinitely easierif we made a program and 'directedit. We encourage and referee studentinterests, but we are inclined to a bitof modesty when our ingenuity andresourcefulness are pitted against thestudents.Those who don't know the studentsenjoy viewing them as young intellec­tuals with a brittle, hard exterior ofphony sophistication. Several tangibleproofs to the contrary may interestyou. The most recent comes spon­taneously from the men in Snell Hall.As soon as they realized the plight of the Chinese students, cut off fromfunds from their families in China,they voted to supply a room free fora Chinese student this year. They arehoping the other houses will followtheir lead, and they doubtless will.Last year the students sent almostone thousand books and innumerableboxes of clothing to Frankfurt wherethe University has an official project.None of these projects was initiatedby our office, although we have helpedwork out the details with the students.Many of the students give their time,energy, and money to the SettlementHouse, and each year the Phi Gamsbring the children from the Settle­ment to their house for a Christmasparty .. I enjoy this one particularlyas the Phi Gams have let me be SantaClaus.Most of the foreign students at theU ni versi ty (there are three hundred)have had a rough time financially asofficial exchanges are against them,but the Chinese are in almost desper­ate straits. The University has beenmore than generous but obviously itcannot do the job alone. The gov­ernment has yet to meet the situationsquarely and realistically, althoughthere are some indications that helpwill be provided. I know the studentswill do their part.You would probably be surprisedto know the extent of religious ac­tivity on the campus. The Protestantgroups' activities are centered in theChapel and Chapel House next door;the Jewish in their lovely Hillel Houseon Woodlawn, and the Catholic inthe De Sales House near your offices.Most of the students are interested inreligion as well as in Proust andKafka.Last week I led a discussion onReligion and Higher Education forthe Inter-Church Council. It was avery hot evening but there was a large,alert group present. How would youanswer the question, "Can the studentaccept all that modern educationtea c he s without losing Christianfaith?" I would be the first to admitthat I was more instructed than in--structive in the hour which followedmy remarks. I felt that these studentswere sincerely attempting to answerfor themselves questions which have'challenged men for hundreds of years.SUMMER ON THE MIDWAYFermi collects a cornerstone, Schweitzer a degree, Hutchins a medal,Potter an aquamarine, and Redfield plauditsLowreyDESPITE the 9,200 students whoare back on campus and at thedowntown college to remind us thata new quarter has begun, summerhappenings-once .national headlines-will take precedence in News of theQuadrangles.This was the summer when Dr.Albert Schweitzer,' famed Goethescholar, philosopher, humanitarianand organist, was granted a doctor oflaws degree by the University ofChicago. Two thousand personscrowded Rockefeller M e m 0 ria IChapel to hear his address in French,and another thousand hugged thesidewalks to catch a glimpse of himas he walked in academic procession.But only a few heard him say toPresident Colwell : "You'll have totell me what to do at the convocation.Remember, I'm only a boy from theAfrican bush."From arctic to tropicA climate room, varying in tem­perature from the cool crisp 50's tothe dripping heat of the tropics, hasbeen built for eclampsia research atChicago Lying-in Hospital and Dis­pensary.A weatherman's "dream room," theclimate room, with controlled tem­perature and humidity, was built toaid patients whose convulsions and by Jeanette Lowreycoma may result because of a changein the weather.Chicago Lying-in hospital's eclamp­sia program, one of the most exten­sive studies ever undertaken of eclamp­sia and the symptoms foreshadowingit, is being conducted by Dr. WilliamJ. Dieckmann, chief-of-staff and MaryCampau, professor of obstetrics andgynecology.The study, accelerated by a $381,-000 fiftieth aniversary gift to Lying­in by Chicagoans in 1945, is leavingno stone unturned to determine thecause and treatment of the diseasewhich exacts the life of 13 out ofevery 100 eclamptic pregnant womenin the United States.Chicago Lying-in research, in addi­tion to the studies to be made in theclimate room, has included dietary carecentered on proteins, retention of saltand water, and geographical and cli­mate surveys. The studies show thateclampsia can be prevented almostcompletely by proper intake of foods,restriction of gain in weight and earlytreatment of the patient by a rigiddiet containing practically no salt butadequate in all other respects.The climate room will be used todetermine whether by controlling the weather, eclamptic convulsions andcoma can be warded off. It will alsobe used to determine the type ofweather which therapeutically bene­fits the patient.Temperature will range from 50 to110 degrees and the humidity from 40per cent to saturation.The onset of convulsion and comain pregnant women, Dr. Dieckmannfound in a statistical study, was de­finitely related to hot, humid climate.More than one half of the maternaldeaths occurring in southern states iscaused by toxemia of pregnancy.Eclampsia has occurred repeatedlywhen an abrupt change in the weathertook place."The changes in the weather arecertainly not the cause of the eclamp­sia," Dr. Dieckmann states, "but insusceptible patients sudden alterationsmay cause disturbance in water bal­ance, acid base equilibrium, and vas­cular system which result in intensi­fying the hypertension, edema, oli­guria, until convulsions and coma oc­cur."The preeclamptic patient and theoccasional eclamptic patient will beplaced in the climate room at Chica­go Lying-in for treatment. Effects ofThe climate room, Chicago Lying-in's latest means ofstudying effects of weather changes on eclampsia patients.1718 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe prescribed temperatures and hu­midities on the patient's condition willbe studied.The climate room will also beavailable to University of ChicagoClinics for studies on the proper tem­peratures and humidities for post­operative patients, cardiac and otheracute conditions and for the study ofdiseases, such as arthritis, which areintensified by certain climatic changes.True internationalismAnthropologist Rob e r t Redfieldmay well lay claim to presenting theUniversity's most "worldly" lectures,for a series of his recent addresseswere conceived in one country, writ­ten in another, translated in a third,and delivered in yet a fourth.I t all came about as a result of a25,000 mile trip which Redfield, hiswife and their 12-year old son Jimmymade.Redfield took his family to Peiping,China, for what he thought would bea year of teaching and research butthe Chinese communists had designson that city and the Redfields lefthastily after only six weeks of theirstay, and four days before the Redsmarched in.In due course, the "refugee" Red­fields arrived at the island of Sicily,where they paused to rest, and whereRedfield put some of his impressionsof China on paper, in the form oflecture notes.While there, he received word fromcentral administration that he wouldbe welcome at the U of C ExchangeProject at the University of Frank­fort. He was invited to give a seriesof lectures in German. He repliedhe would be pleased to deliver thelectures, but that he couldn't do thetranslation himself."Don't worry about that," his Mid­way colleagues wrote back. "Just leaveit to us."So, while Redfield was journeyingto Frankfort, his lectures, conceivedin China and written in Sicily, wereairmailed to America to be translatedfor presentation in Germany.They were, the Frankfort group re-'ports, an international success. (Youcan see why in his article "Visit toChina" on page 9.)New chairman of medicine.Dr. Wright R. Adams, professor ofmedicine and associate dean of the division of biological sciences, hasbeen appointed chairman of the de­partment of medicine. He will suc­ceed Dr. Lowell T. Coggeshall, whoresigned July 1 to devote full timeto his post as dean of the division ofbiological sciences and to his researchwork in internal medicine and tropicaldiseases.HonorsTwo more honorary degrees weregiven. In June's convocation, Chan­cellor Hutchins conferred a doctor ofscience degree on Dr. Ross G. Har­rison, internationally famous biolo­gist, and a doctor of laws degree onHarold H. Swift, former chairman ofthe board of trustees.TaliaferroWilliam H.

The Cen­ter, established by ten middlewesternuniversities with a $750,000 grantfrom Carnegie Corporation and$250,000 .from the Rockefeller Foun­dation, will be directed by RalphEsterquest, former assistant director of the University of Denver Library. Itwill house the tremendous number ofpublications, important for research,which can't be housed in, or paid for,by individual libraries.CornerstonesI t was a summer of cornerstonelayings. One for the $12,000,000nuclear, biological and metal insti­tutes was laid across the street fromthe football stand where Enrico Fermibuilt the first atomic "fire." Fermihimself laid the first trowel of cementfor the institutes, and at a luncheonfollowing the ceremony, Robert E.Wilson, chairman of the board ofStandard Oil (Indiana) and trusteeof the University, and Kenneth S.Pitzer, of the Atomic Energy Com­mission's research division, headed upthe speaker's list.A ceremony attended the laying ofthe $2,075,000 Nathan Goldblatt Me­morial Hospital, and the . speakerswere: Dr. Leonard Scheele, U.

Potter, associateprofessor of pathology, was told whenthe Brazilian Society of Pediatricsgave her an aquamarine ring.Dr. Potter, famed at Chicago Lying­in Hospital and Dispensary for herresearch in the causes of infant mor­tality and the Rh factor, received thejewel when she was made an honorarymember of the society during herfour-month lectureship at the Hem­atological Society of Sao Paulo andat the University of Montevideo.Delighted with its beauty and theglamour of its presentation, Dr. Pot­ter thanked the society profusely forthe ring. Enthusiastically, she showedit to a South American acquaintance.. "That's fine," the friend said. "Allimportant people who come to Rioare given aquamarine rings. PresidentTruman and Madame Chiang Kai­shek also got them."•Fifty alumni relive the gay 90' s atTHE inaugural luncheon of theEmeritus Club during ReunionWeek brought press photographers tothe Quadrangle Club.The Tribune, naturally, was inter­ested in its dean of Washington cor­respondents, recently retired ArthurSears Henning who, with his attrac­tive wife, came from the nation's cap­itol for the occasion and his first visitto the quadrangles in years.The Sun-Times published a shot ofPresident Colwell presenting medal­lions to the earliest degree holder(from Old University) ElizabethFaulkner, '85; Stella Stagg, '96, pop­ular wife of Amos Alonzo; and TrevorArnett, '98, former vice president andbusiness manager and now Trusteeof the University.It was a coincidence that exactly. 50 alumni, eligible to be honored as50-year alumni, attended the lunch­eon. Actually, according to the alum­ni files, some 250 who received bach­elor degrees before the turn of thecentury, are still living.Many sent letters of regret fromas distant points as California, Flori­ida, and even South America.

Scoreshad already gone to join the Com­munists a few miles away, and theirvoices were heard daily on the radio,reassuring their friends still withinNationalist lines, promising them free­dom and opportunity to serve Chinawhen the city should fall.Members of the university faculty were also in communication with theCommunists. Sometimes they metthem secretly on campus. A few pro­fessors were planning to leave beforethe surrender, but most planned tostay, and these. men were talking,planning, negotiating with the Com­munists, about academic work afterthe conquest. They were hopeful ofthe conditions that would then pre­vail. Some thought they could become"the loyal opposition", accepting theends of the Communist program butcritical of the means. I hear fromthese men only indirectly now, butwhat I do hear makes me feel surethat after eight months of the newregime, they are disappointed in thesehopes.The Communists edged nearer thecity, while the social scientists of thetwo universities continued their re-19 search. Professor Lin Yueh-Hua of. Yenching, and his group of youngermen, were studying a village yet underNationalist control. The obstacles hefaced were raised by the Nationalistgovernment. When students went intothe villages to make studies, the mili­tary police would often stop .them, oreven arrest them. The government.feared that the-students -would "cometoo close" to the people." They mightstir up the peasants against ChiangKai Shek.An important change was takingplace, indeed. The educated youngpeople of China, long privileged andremoved from the peasants, were com­ing to feel that to make their educa­tion useful they would have to getclose to the people. They had no e�­perience in doing this. Yet theywanted to learn how to work with.the20 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEpeasants, and to understand theirproblems. The Nationalists preventedtheir efforts to do so, while the Com­munists, over the radio, promisedthem opportunity to work with thepeasants toward a better life.As the fall of the city drew near,our friends ceased urging us to stay.A few Americans at the universitiesdid remain, wishing to witness thetransition and confident of their abil­ity to maintain themselves. We wouldgo. And it became clear to us that itwas well we did, for after the Com­munists took over we would be some­thing of an embarrassment to ourfriends. For one thing, my lectures on"Social Science and Society" ex­pressed views uncongenial to a regimeseeking to establish a doctrine andcontrol a university.The boats from Tientsin were nolonger running; of course all rail con­nection with the South had ceasedlong ago; and now the plane flights,still connecting Peiping with the out­side, became uncertain. On the daybefore we were to leave, the Presidentof one of the universities said he hadword that the surrender of the cityhad been arranged; he doubted if ourplane would be able to land at theremaining airport. But it did, andtook us away from Peiping. With uswent the partly completed manuscriptof the essays Fei was re-writing withmy wife's help. Our closest friendssaw us off at the airport which fellinto Communist hands two or threedays after. So did the universities.Through the kindness of Chinesefriends we had received an invitationfrom Lingnan University to visitthere. This university lies on an islandin the Pearl River, near the City ofCanton. I t also has connections withthe University of Chicago. Amongthose who have taught there are Char­lotte Gower, MA '26, PhD '28, andBernard Hormann, PhD '49. TheYang, an associate of Fei Hsiao-Tung.The university was still at work re-SARGENT'S DRUG STOREAn Ethical Drug Store for 95 YearsChicago's most completeprescription stock23 N. Wabash AvenueChieago.' Illinois storing its resources and reconstitut­ing its teaching and research afteryears of occupation by the Japanese.Yang had, come there only recently,and made me feel useful in giving hima little help in rebuilding his Depart­ment. With Yang (or with an excel­lent young Cantonese, Sze Yu-Sui )my wife, James, and I visited some ofthe hundreds of villages on the island.This sort of expedition into ruralChina could hardly be made in theNorth, where the war kept everyoneclose to the campus or city. In oneof them, Yang planned to establishheadquarters for local studies to bemade for himself. And we saw some­thing of the life of the river people,who spend most of their lives on sam-pans or junks. 'Yang had his obstacles to overcome,too, for here at Canton the studentsare even more remote from the peas­antry. Many are the sons or daugh­ters of wealthy city people, some fromHong Kong, and some from Chinesefamilies established in Malaysia or inthe United States. And unlike theuniversities of Peiping, Lingnan hasnot yet produced advanced studentscompetent to make field studies. Yangis patiently working to develop his re­search in, spite of these difficulties.Before we left Lingnan, Yang hadestablished his village center for ruralstudies, Sze Yu-Sui had decided tocome to the University of Chicago forwork in economics, and I had writtena report on the university for Presi­dent Chen. President Chen is steady'and sensible, with excellent under­standing of higher education. I hopethat he will be able to carry his uni­versity through the' time of transitionthat now comes on Canton, as eightmonths ago it came upon Peiping.Chine wants a changeThe current changes in China aredeeper than the transfer of power toa Communist regime. Communism iscoming to dominate China becausethe, old regime is morally bankrupt aswell as economically unjust. PeopleAjax Waste Paper Co.2600-2634 W.

Perhaps whatthey would like most is to shut outthe West, except for its techniques ..The Communists are well disciplinedand vigorous. But those who haveunderstood the Communist promiseand doctrine are not many in com­parison with the hundreds of millionswhom no centralized authority has rever been able to dominate.The West has made the funda­mental changes in China, and Chinahas received the impact of the Westfrom both directions, in two forms.From across the Pacific, she receivedmachinery and education. As a result,the medieval system of productionand social classes is disappearing. Theold classical learning is given up, fol­lowing the example of the West, as abasis for the selection of its bu­reaucracy, and for the formal moralguidance of the people. The socialstructure must be re-made, the com­ing industry must be adjusted to'China's needs and ideals, new leader­ship, political and moral, developed.From the other side, from Russia,comes a Western doctrine, Marxism,that offers a leadership, a discipline,a fresh interpretation of the ends andmeans of living.I t seems that China cannot go backto the old learning, and shut out theWest entirely. It will have to go for­ward to make terms with the West,to manage the material power thatwill come, to interpret for itself theteachings of Marxian or free enter­priser. But the reserves of, customarymorality, of tough strength in a viewof life that is neither Marxian nOfcapitalist, that is, though intenselypractical, not materialistic at all, arevery great in China. One has the feel­ing that at least insofar as Com­munism is inhuman, the Chinesewhose ideal of life has always beengood human relationships, will tendto modify it.Thinking of these things, in Febru­ary in Hong Kong we boarded aplane bound for Europe.ASHJIAN BROS., Inc.•• TABLIIHED 1121Orien tal and DomesticRUGSCLEANED anel REPAIRED8066 Soulh Chicago Phone REgenl 4·6000 ' L:i,THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENew Fields ofResearch and Achievement• • FROM THE AIR•* * *Rate Gases Now Available in Quantity OfferChallenging Subject for StudyAmong the least known of the elements have been the rare gases-Krypton andXenon. Occurring in the atmosphere in concentration of one part per million forKrypton, and one part per twelve million for Xenon, their very scarcity gave themthe status of "scientific curiosities" for a long time.But now, these gases are available in quantity in refined, compressed form.As these gases assume the different role of "new" materials, their individual physi­cal and electrical properties are finding interesting uses.The increased efficiency of hot cathode (fluorescent) lights is a direct resultof using Krypton as the gas filler. The brightest light ever made by man is pro­duced by an electrical discharge through a column of Krypton ... these lights areused to penetrate fog at airports.Xenon is replacing mercury vapor in industrial (thyratron) tubes, to avoidlow temperature condensation troubles. It is Xenon that makes practical the"repeater" (gas discharge) photographic flash lamp-the low resistance and goodspectral range of the gas both being important. In the fast-growing field of atomicenergy, the rare gases become i:pcreasingly important. The use of such gases inGeiger Mueller counter tubes is well familiar.Chemists and physicists on many types of projects will want to study thepossible value of these gases in their fic1ds. Others may desire to work with therare gases as such, contributing to further information in this expanding subject.Graduate students especially may find rare gases a fascinating, challenging, andwide open field for doctoral thesis.In whatever connection, scientists who may want more information on Kl'YP­ton, Xenon, Argon, etc., are invited to write us fully.
