Throughout the Bell System, thousands ofother telephone men and women are collectingfood, candy, toys and dollars for those lessfortunate than themselves.It's a long-time telephone tradition — and arather natural one.

There wereMBA's (Masters of Business Administration)representing the whole area, from HighlandPark to Gary.The Medical Division, with Hilgar PerryJenkins, '23, MD '27, president, held afaculty-student-alumni reception for Chancellor Kimpton in the new, spacious Billings cafeteria.A new Reynolds Club Council has beenorganized by a smart, alert group of students under the presidency of Gary Filosa.Organized to give personality to the newly decorated and remodeled clubhouse(through the generosity of Trustee ErnestE. Quantrell), the Council dove immediately into its social program. It sponsoreda tea for Senator Paul A. Douglas— on campus for a series of Walgreen Lectures— andhis wife, Emily. Mrs. Wendell Harrisonand Mrs. Ruth McCarn poured for thestudents.In a brief informal program, Paul answered pointed questions. The final question: "Do you approve of the drafting ofstudents . . .?" Without a moment's pauseto consider a political sidestep where theaudience was obviously concerned about1-A classifications, Senator Douglas replied,"In the present emergency I certainlydo. . .!"There was a spontaneous burst of applause from the students, a compliment toforthrightness, not necessarily opinion.At the Douglas tea, the Reynolds ClubCouncil president, Gary Filosa (striped tie),with Council members and advisers, studyfaculty autographs. The two Council members: Sunny Rudolph (left) and SandyGoldman; the two advisers: Howard Mort(center) and Hilary Fry (right).

By Leonard D. White. New York:The Macmillan Co., 1951. Pp. xi-572.$6.This is the second volume in a series ofworks covering the history of Americanpublic administration THE FEDERALISTS has already appeared, and THEJACKSONIANS is completed in manuscript. The other volumes are on theway, and the series taken together willconstitute a very notable addition to theunderstanding of our political heritage.The volumes on administration alreadypublished by Dr. White offer an amazing insight not only into American public administration but also into the problem of administration everywhere, andespecially in democracy.This volume is based upon thoroughand exhaustive study of all available textsand documents, pursued with such consuming diligence as to threaten at onetime the health and hopes of the author.In addition to their profound erudition,these volumes have the merit of brilliantand readable style.Dr. White puts an end to the old myththat administrative efficiency and progress are impossible under democraticauspices. Just how we developed democracy and administrative organization,careers and responsibility, is illustratedin these pages as nowhere else. Politicalparty campaigns come and go, with muchthat is of value, but the deeper trendsin American public affairs are illustratedin Dr. White's series. This fine study isof permanent value, indispensable to anyserious student of American and ofworld problems.Charles E. MerriamMorton D. Hull DistinguishedService Professor, Emeritus,Political Science. Harriet Hughes Dallas, SM '05, has writtena book for children entitled OURFRIEND FROM BETHLEHEM (Vantage Press) in which she relates in language children can understand, thestories of Jesus. Inspired to write thebook by the lively and insistent interestof her grandson ("Please tell that storyagain.") , Mrs. Dallas drew upon her ownserious interest in the Bible. This interest began at the University, under theguidance of Shailer Matthews, whose"scholarship and enthusiasm, flashes ofgorgeous humor, and deep spiritualquality" made a lasting impression onthe author.Myra Reed Richardson, '11, in her latestbook for children, FINDERS KEEPERS,(Viking Press) has concocted a lively andhumorous adventure story, in whichthree 12-year-old boys, a poodle, a Scotty,an enormous Saint Bernard, a temperamental mother bear and her two cubs,and a number of odoriferous skunks arethe main ingredients. Mrs. Richardson'skeen imagination and understanding ofchildren roamed over the Connecticutcountryside to find the proper locale forher story, a setting which also served forher previous book, THE MULE SKINNERS, for children, ages 9 to 12.George Albert Nicholson, PhD '14, in hisbook THE VILLAGE CHURCH ANDTOWARD GOD (Exposition Press) hasexpressed, in poetic form, his search forreligious maturity. The first of threereligious cycles is a vivid and dramaticrecital of his own boyhood experienceswith revival meetings and his final rejection of a harsh theology which hecould not square with reality. As such,this cycle is not only a testimony to oneman's religious growth, but also a contribution to the social history of thesmall towns of the Middle West at theturn of the century. The other cyclesdeal with his further search for God andwith it a growing tolerance of the waysother men seek their own answers toquestions of faith.Announcing . . .A new phonograph Record Shop at the University of Chicago Bookstore.

Since 1942, this grouphas been responsible for all fund-raisingamong alumni, and specifically the annualAlumni Gift. We are introducing thiscolumn this month to present from time totime some of the interesting stories whichcome to light as the Foundation carries onits work.Athletic ScholarshipKenyon Stapley, 18, has just entered thethird year of the College. Already he isactive in Student Union, Acrotheatre, andas a member of the Cross Country team.Yet only a month ago, Ken appeared headedtoward a state university not too far fromHomewood, Illinois, where his parents, Mr.and Mrs. Raymond Stapley live. An interesting series of events led up to his registration at the University this year.When Chancellor Kimpton addressed theOrder of the "C" at its annual banquet lastJune, he put before the group a challenge:"You men can be of great service to yourUniversity. You can encourage boys, of thecalibre we desire, to come to Chicago. Andyou can furnish the funds to provide forthem while they are here." One week lateran alumnus, present at the dinner, gave tothe University, through the Alumni Foundation, $3,000 to provide scholarships forboys of high scholastic standing who wouldbe interested in participating in varsity-athletics, the boys to receive the awardswith the approval of the donor.Ken is the first to enjoy the generosity ofthis alumnus. A year ago, he won, on acompetitive basis, a half-scholarship in theCollege. During his three years at Thornton Township High School, he had anexcellent scholastic record and was activeas a member of the school's football, basketball, swimming, baseball, and track teams.During his first year at University a member of the junior varsity trackteam he set an indoor record in the 880-yard run— 2:01.8 minutes, the fastest indoorSTAPLEy's ALSO A PENTATHLON MAN MAGAZINEVolume 44 December, 1951 Number 3PUBLISHED BY THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATIONExecutive EditorHOWARD W.

Eakin (p. 10) was asked ifthere was such a thing as an over-all favorite among children's books. She said no, but her elaboration was surprising. A close approach to such a book is Herbert Zim'slittle masterpiece on owls. Designed for third graders,the book — placed in high schools for remedial readingwork — has also accidentally become popular with teen-ageyoungsters who long since have outgrown its large type.Reading about owls this month is Betty Clark, 8, a pupilin the University's lab school. Betty is the daughter ofDr. Dwight Clark, professor of surgery, and EleanorMelander Clark, '38.(Cover and all photographs by Stephen Lewellyn except page 1,Roger Severson; page 25, SC Photo; page 29, John E.

He had commuted from Homewood to U-High lastyear, a trip that took two hours a day. For. a man with his speed, this was wasted time.He seriously considered enrolling at a university in a neighboring state, although hisone year at U-High had built within hima great admiration for the faculty and thephysical education staff members withwhom he had come in contact. The giftof the alumnus has enabled him to live this year in the College dormitories and to begin his preparation for a teaching career.Gifts from other individuals and fromother sources have provided scholarships for525 of 1,680 students in the College.Although the donor of Ken's scholarshiphas given scholarships in the past, he hasmatched his scholarship contributions withgifts unrestricted as to purpose. Fromalumni, through their Alumni Foundation,to the students and to the University hascome great help. Through the Foundationyou can share in it, too.— James Atkins,Secretary of the Alumni Foundation.DECEMBER, 1951 5FROM HARPER TO KIMPTONThe history of this University has beenshort, but it is one of which we are proud.We believe that its eminence is due to thefact that each of its heads has been faithful to the ideals established by its firstpresident, William Rainey Harper. Thesehave been ideals of freedom— freedom tosearch for the truth, freedom to pioneer andexplore untrod paths, freedom to questionaccepted beliefs, freedom to teach the truthas the teacher sees the truth. It is truethat a university is a community of scholars,but it is also true that the head of theinstitution can create the atmosphere inwhich the community of scholars can bestdevelop and progress. It is in the hope andconfidence that you, Lawrence Kimpton,can and will continue to lead this University with these ideals that the Trusteeshave selected you as the sixth head of theUniversity, and I do now by their authoritydeclare you Chancellor of the Universityof Chicago.With these words, Laird Bell, JD '07,Chairman of the Board of Trustees, formally inaugurated and installed LawrenceAlpheus Kimpton as Chancellor of the University in Rockefeller Memorial Chapel October 18. Ten pages of this issue of theMagazine are devoted to documentation ofthe accompanying events.6AT LUNCH IN HUTCHINSON COMMONS, DELEGATES ROARED AT KIMPTON ACCOUNT OF HOW HE CAME TO CHICAGOHot Dogs and Supersonic ReflectoscopesBy Lawrence A. KimptonTHE HISTORY of my initial andsubsequent connections with theUniversity of Chicago is a series ofaccidents that I think I ought to tellyou about. It could hardly, as youwill see, be considered a hortatorytale for the young on how to becomea chancellor of a university, if thereare any young who entertain sofoolish an ambition. It could evenbe described in terms of what to avoidif you wish to get on in the scholarlyworld. It was all Mr. Conant's fault,and he must add this to his accumulation of sins that every universitypresident piles up.Back in the thirties, I was servingwithout any particular distinction asdean of a strange, little, privatejunior college, located out in thedesert country of eastern California,close to the Nevada line. Almostyearly, we had a visitation from adistinguished chemist and inveterateglobe-trotter, named Neville Sidg-wick, of Lincoln College, Oxford. Ihave never known why Sidgwick sofavored us; perhaps it was becausethe wild and rugged landscape wasso different from the neat hedgerowsof his native England.On one of these visits, he sug gested we run up to Fallen LeafLake and bring Jim Conant downto view the desert. I thought it awonderful idea, and a few days laterwe were driving down the beautifulhighway that winds through thepasses and around the saline lakesbetween Reno and Los Angeles.Perilous journeyIt was probably the most dangerous journey that any president ofHarvard University ever made,though he did not know it and doesnot know it to this day. The automobile had no brakes. I had notwanted to delay the journey byhaving them repaired, so I breatheda little prayer for the Harvard Corporation and vaguely slowed the cardown with lower gears from timeto time. Like any good scientist, hewas so occupied with geological formations and a balky altimeter thathe didn't observe some narrowsqueaks that must have made theaccumulated dead of all New England roll about in their graves.The visit itself was without incident, except for two events. Theranch foreman of the school decided,as he rode into the mountains, to burn some willow trees that lined alittle stream emptying into our valley. By the time we saw smoke, thefire was well started. We had noidea that it was a planned fire, and,eager to preserve the natural resources of the West, we drove wildlyup to the fire, and commenced tolay about us with axes and bucketsof water.In spite of our most heroic efforts,the fire burned itself out only whenthe supply of willow trees becameexhausted, precisely as had beenoriginally proposed. When the Forest Service heard that a planned andapproved fire had been fought bysuch dignitaries as the President ofHarvard and a professor of Oxford,they were overcome with emotion,and sent us all checks for $2.38.Never had so many done so littlefor so much.The second event had even moreprofound and far-reaching consequences; in fact, it accounts for mybeing at Chicago today. Mr. Conantsaid that he did not like the waywe were teaching our course in elementary chemistry. My first reactionwas one of annoyance. It did notseem to me to be any of his business,7and, secondly, I had been very careful not to make any snide remarksabout Harvard.After some reflection, however, Idecided not to be annoyed; Harvardwas bigger than my school, and, anyway, Mr. Conant had been a prettygood chemist before he ruined hislife. I listened respectfully to hissuggestion that he ask Linus Pauling,head of the Chemistry Department atCalifornia Institute of Technology,to come up and give us a hand inour work. Linus did come up, hecompletely revised our course, andhe sent, for the next several years,his crack graduate students toteach it.Possibly the devilWith the outbreak of the war, thesesame young graduate students became involved in a phase of theatomic bomb project which waslocated at the University of Chicago.They decided that if I could administer a remote desert school withall of its problems, I could administera bomb project. They were obviouslychemists, not logicians, but in anycase that was how I became connected with the University ofChicago.The negotiations for my employment seemed to me to be very unusual at the time, but I have sincelearned that most negotiations foremployment at the University ofChicago have this same vague,garbled, almost mystical quality. Iwas not told what the project wasabout, for whom I would be working,or what my duties and salary wereto be. I was told only that theproject was connected with the wareffort, that administratively it wasan unbelievable mess, and that thewhole thing was dangerous.All this was told me by an individual, in hushed tones, who refused to identify himself and whomI never saw again in my whole life.I sometimes think it was the devil.Devil or not, I bartered my souland agreed to turn up a month fromthat day, prepared to go to work —for whom, for what, and to whatend I did not know. I turned up allright on the appointed day and created considerable surprise in all quarters; nobody had ever heard of me.It was assumed that I was a spy.The evidence seemed to me a little slim, but to the Military Intelligenceand the F.B.I, it was overwhelming:I couldn't for the life of me remember the married name of an old auntof mine who lived on a remote farmin western Kansas. This seemed tomean, in the devious thought processes of the security constabulary,that I. was at least a Japanese andprobably a Russian.After some two days of grilling, Iemerged 100% American and wasthen ushered into the office of theadministrative head of the project.He proved to be a very charmingand casual fellow who had been onthe project only a week himself, andknew almost as little as I about whatwas going on. He did inform methat the work had something to dowith the atom, that there were some5,000 people employed, and that administratively it was a mess. Toprove the last point, he produced anorganization chart in which most ofthe boxes were empty, and explainedthat either there were no peoplefilling those jobs or he hadn't beenable to find them.He then suggested that I go towork as his assistant; the reason forthis generous offer turned out to bethat he was off for two weeks inWashington, leaving within the nextfew minutes, and he had not beenable to find anyone, up to that point,to place in charge of the laboratoryduring his absence. I accepted theoffer, and he walked out of my life,leaving me in charge of a scientificlaboratory spending several milliondollars a month on what turned outto be the most important programof the war.An hour or so later, after I hadlocated the pencil sharpener and thedrinking fountain, a scientist enteredmy office and asked if I were theperson he wanted to see. The problem in that abbreviated form seemedinsoluble, but since I knew no oneto refer him to, I nodded brightlyand said that I was just his man.Leaky hot dogsHe then explained that his projectwas jacketing hot-dogs, and hebadly needed a supersonic reflecto-scope to detect leaks. My mind,what there was left of it, boggled,but I somehow managed to remarkthat these supersonic reflectoscopes were very hard to come by. I leftunasked the troublesome questions ofwThat in the world a reflectoscope,supersonic or otherwise, was, andwhy, during a period of nationalemergency, anyone bothered aboutthe lowly frankfurter.A equals AI had made the right remark. Headmitted that there was only onesupersonic reflectoscope in the world,that it was built and owned by General Motors, and they probablywouldn't turn loose of it, and, evenif we asked them for it, the resultscould be unfortunate since theymight guess the nature of our work.I resisted the impulse to reassurehim on the security aspects of theproblem, since I could not take alarmat the thought that General Motorsmight get the idea that we were discovering leaks in hot dogs. I toldthe scientist that I would takethought on the matter and that action would shortly follow. He thankedme profusely and departed as I satdown to contemplate the mysteriesof the universe and, in particularthat part of it upon which I was atthe moment so precariously perched.I won't bore you with how wesolved this problem and all the assorted, odd problems of the next fewyears of the atomic bomb project.We did get the supersonic reflectoscope, and we did generate an administrative staff that slowly whippedthe laboratory into some sort ofshape. In fact, it all worked wellenough for me to come to the attention of one Robert MaynardHutchins at the end of the war.It seems that Bob had lost hisDean of Students by resignation, andwhere, such are the workings of thisgreat mind, should he more naturallyturn for one to manage the intricateaffairs of the young than to theadministrator of the atomic bombproject?I shall never forget our interview.I had never met Mr. Hutchins, butI had heard that he was a very forbidding fellow. I was greatly surprised to find him in shirt-sleeves,with his feet on the desk, smoking acigarette.He sprayed the ashes over the rugand proceeded to ask questions andmake statements which, so far as Icould see, had nothing to do with8 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEthe business in hand. He said theUniversity was lousy^ didn't I thinkso? I decided that he ought toknow, so I agreed.He then asked me if I didn't thinkthe great books were great. I hadbeen carefully taught in formal logicthat a tautological proposition maybe trivial, but it is certainly true, soI assented readily to that one. Hewent on to ask me if I didn't thinkthe function of an educational insti tution was to educate. This seemedonce again to be asking me if I hada firm grasp of the truth of theproposition that A is A, so I assented.And now came the clincher: didI know anything about student personnel administration? I replied thatI didn't know a thing about it. Atthis point, he arose, warmly shookmy hand and said, "May I be thefirst to congratulate you on being the new Dean of Students of the University of Chicago?"In this strange way, began an association with a man, who above allothers I have ever known, had truehumility, wisdom, and integrity. Hewas forever simple and direct, hereally believed in the things of themind, and he always lived by principle. The great university he moldedfor almost a quarter of a century reflects these things.TRUSTEE SWIFT RESUMES SEAT, HUTCHINS SPEAKS. LEFT: GORDON, KIMPTONPOPULAR OR UNPOPULARThe University must resistpressure toward conformityBy Robert M. Hutchins, LLD'51THE TRADITION of the University of Chicago is the tradition ofindependence. From the beginning itwas understood that the members ofthe University community were supposed to have ideas, that these ideaswould be objectively examined, andthat, if such examination showed themto be good, they would be acted on,whether they were conventional orunconventional, popular or unpopular.Even now, when the public relations man has become the dominant figure in American education, theUniversity maintains this tradition.For its public relations officers havebeen captured by the spirit of theUniversity and have seen, as anybodymust who is not too timid to look,that the only thing that would befatal to the University would be forit to become conventional, that theUniversity loses the reason for its existence when that day dawns, andthat the time to start worrying aboutthe University is when it becomespopular with the wrong people. The wrong people are those whomisconceive the purpose and nature ofthe higher learning and who do notunderstand the form of governmentunder which we live. They think thatthe aim of a university is to adjustthe young to their environment or totrain them to meet their immediateneeds. Or they think of a universityas a kind of asylum or housing project in which the young are detained.or retarded, until we are ready tohave them go to work.These fantasies underlie aberrationsof those who believe that a professorwho does not think and speak in harmony with the most vociferous politicians and the most strident newspapers must be subversive. Thesepeople are afraid of thought. Theyare literally scared out of their wits.And they are well on their way to intimidating everybody who has anywits left.Yet we know that the essence ofdemocracy is the consent of the governed. This consent must involvesomething more than passive acquiescence in decisions made elsewhere. Itdemands appraisal of new proposalsand continuous re-appraisal of theestablished order. To be a democratis to be a critic. To be an Americanis to think for oneself. The most undemocratic, un-American activity thatis now going on in this country is theeffort to inhibit and discredit independent thought.The tradition of the University ofChicago requires resistance to all pressures tending toward forced conformity. The example of the University of Chicago has in the past givenheart to many less favorably situatedwho looked upon it as raising a standard to which the wise and righteouscould repair. This example is needednow as never before.DECEMBER, 1951 9MARY EAKIN'S CENTER HOLDS 4,000 CHILDREN'S BOOKS, BUT NO CHILDRENJudging Booksfor ChildrenIf you're buying a book toread aloud, get one you enjoy, says Mary Eakin. If itbores you, your reading ofit will bore the child, tooBy Mary K. Eakin, '46BUYING BOOKS for children iseasy — deceptively easy. It iseasy for those adults who either buythe titles they remember from theirown childhood or accept the firstsuggestion made by the bookstoreclerk. Unfortunately most of thebooks so chosen bring little pleasureto the children and are soon relegatedeither to the attic or to the wastepaper drive. But buying children'sbooks is far from easy for anyonewho takes the matter seriously andtries to find the right book for eachchild.More than 900 new titles for children are published annually and awell-stocked bookstore may have aselection of three or four thousandfrom which to choose. There arebooks for all age levels, on all subjects, in a wide range of prices, andof all levels of quality or lack of it.Joy, not dismayIt is possible to find a book thatwill have some element of appeal foreven the most non-literary child, butto most adults the task seems hopeless. Unfortunately bookstores cangive only a limited amoutit of help.Many stores depend on "untrainedclerks to handle the Christmas rush(untrained, that is, in terms of aknowledge of children and children'sbooks) . Even the trained personnelare limited in the amount of timethey can give to any one customer,and few of them have had time toread all of the books they handle.10 The wise adult seeks help fromother sources before approaching thebookstore. Then, armed with a listof suggested titles for each child onhis list, he finds that books are indeedan easy solution to the Christmasproblem. And on Christmas morningthe children open up their books withjoy rather than dismay.The University's unique Center forChildren's Books is one source of information for parents and otheradults seeking help in buying children's books, as presents or for usein libraries — school, public, or special.It is jointly sponsored by the University of Chicago Library and theGraduate Library School, by whichit was established in 1945, for thepurpose of analyzing and evaluatingchildren's books.To the Center come approximately75 per cent of all children's bookspublished in this country each year.The books are thoroughly read andevaluated in terms of the needs andinterests of children at home and atschool. Evaluations are made by thestaff of the Center, members of thefaculty of the Graduate LibrarySchool, the Laboratory School, theDepartment of Education, and, occasionally, by children and librariansfrom public schools and libraries.Results of these evaluations arepublished in our monthly Bulletin.Frances Henne, acting dean of theGraduate Library School; Sara Fen-wick and Blanche Janecek, librariansof the Laboratory School's Lower andUpper School Libraries; and I constitute a committee which meets every week to go over the Bulletin annotations and make final decisions as towhether books will be recommended.The increase in number of children's books published each year isencouraging from one point of view.There are now more books on moresubjects than ever before in the history of children's literature. Withmore than 900 children's titles published each year, however, it is impossible that all can be of top quality.One or two may have really lastingvalue; the others will range fromgood to mediocre to bad.Competition for timeThe same criteria for good writingthat are applied to adult books areused in evaluating children's booksby the Center. Only those that rankas good or superior are accepted.With the growing demands whichradio, movies, and television make onchildren's time it becomes increasingly important that when childrendo read, they should read books thatare well-written and interesting.This is possible today as it neverwas before, for there are enough goodbooks in print that no child shouldever have to read a book that ismediocre or worse.In evaluating children's books, weplace heavy emphasis on their subjectmatter, for children get many of theirbasic ideas and concepts from whatthey read. Stereotypes of races, religions, nationalities, or occupationsare never accepted. Such stereotypesmay be a part of the text or may beTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEfound in the illustrations. Usuallythey take the form of either ridiculeor contempt. Books that stress extreme nationalism are not acceptablein this day when the trend is towardeducation for world-mindedness.Science for youngstersWriters, publishers, teachers, andlibrarians are all aware of the needfor quality in children's books. Manyof them are doing something aboutit. There can be no doubt that thequality as well as the quantity ofchildren's books is higher today thanit was fifteen or twenty-five years ago.Much that was objectionable in children's books has been removed andmuch that is good has been added.One of the most encouragingtrends is toward well-written and interesting non-fiction books for children. Science figures prominently intoday's informational books, whichcan be found in a wide range, fromatoms and jet fighters to naturestudy materials for very young children. An outstanding example ofhigh quality nature-study material isthe series of Zim books. These combine an easy style of writing with ahigh subject interest and are exceptional in having an appeal for highschool readers as well as third graders.There is likewise an encouragingtrend away from coy, personifiedanimals in nature books for the veryyoung, and toward a straightforward,slightly Actionized, but wholly realistic type of story that presents animalsas they actually exist.Three types of books that raisespecial problems in evaluation are theinexpensive books, reprints of the"classics," and books written for aspecific purpose.The basic idea behind the inexpensive book is a good one. Pride ofownership, which is an important factor in encouraging reading, can, inthese books, be achieved by childrenwho would never be able to affordmore expensive books. Cheap booksalso could serve a useful purpose inoffsetting the appeal of comics.Unfortunately the series that havethus far appeared (Golden Books,Wonder Books, Book-elf Books) arelittle better than the comics, in eitherwriting quality or caliber of illustration. Being cheap in quality as wellas price makes them, in fact, expensive items, for they contribute tothe child nothing but mediocrity. In a recent study of Golden Booksmade at the Center, 182 titles wereread and evaluated. Of these, 116were found to be not acceptable forhome, school, or public library use.It is important in buying these booksthat parents examine each title carefully to be certain they are not shortchanging their children.It was mentioned earlier that manyadults tend to buy for children thebooks they themselves enjoyed aschildren. This is not necessarily bad,but it has two dangers. Many ofthese books were read and enjoyedsimply because there was at that timenothing better to read. It is withinthe past fifteen years that publishershave come to look on children's booksas big business, and that adults havegiven much concern to the quality ofthe books children read.Spinster, not horseMost of the books that adults remember nostalgically have been replaced by modern stories that arebetter written and better suited tothe needs and interests of children.A prime example is Black Beauty,one of the first horse stories and onethat, unfortunately, has been kepton the market long after its usefulness has ended. The story is poorlywritten; Black Beauty is more a mid-Victorian spinster than a horse; andthe purpose for which it was written (the founding of the ASPCA)has been a reality for many years.Why give children this out-dated,poorly written story when we cansubstitute a book such as MargueriteHenry's King of the Wind?Reprint series consist primarily oftitles that are no longer protectedby copyright and so can be sold ininexpensive editions. However, likethe books mentioned above, theycease to be inexpensive when theyviolate standards for quality of writing or of ideas.In the Center for Children's Booksthe "classics" are given the sameanalysis and evaluation as modernbooks. And only those titles that canmeet the criteria for good writingand acceptable content are retained.Thus Black Beauty, Five Little Peppers, Water Babies (to mention afew) are no longer recommended;Little Women, Treasure Island, TomSawyer still rank high.Finally, because children's bookscan be used to supplement the schoolcurriculum and to help childrensolve their personal problems, manybooks are being published to meetthese specific needs. Most such booksare not well written, and the purposeis usually so obvious it overshadowsany appeal the subject or story mightotherwise have.Two series that have appeared inthe past five years offer good ex-LIBRARIANS SARA FENWICK, FRANCES HENNE, MARY EAKIN IN CONFERENCEDECEMBER, 1951 11GOLDEN BOOKSThough the Center found mostoj the GOLDEN BOOKS unacceptable, there were still quitea jew that were okayed.

The Landoj the Free series is designed to giveolder readers an understanding andappreciation of some of the nationalgroups that make up the r UnitedStates. The books, all in the formof historical fiction, are by well-known writers and show evidence ofintensive research.Yet only two of the authors havemanaged to overcome the' combinedhandicap of too much research andcommissioned writing, to producestories that are interesting enough12 and fast-paced enough to hold ayoung reader's attention. The otherscontain a wealth of information, butit serves merely to interfere with thestory; so that the result is neitheruseful history nor good fiction.The Landmark Books are also commissioned books. They are designedfor readers at about the fourth gradelevel and their purpose is to giveyoung children an understanding ofthe major events of American history. The books are, on the whole,more successful than the Land ojthe Free books.The present interest in books asguidance material to help readersovercome their prejudices or solvetheir personal problems has broughtforth large numbers of fiction booksdealing with such problems. A fewof these are successful, but the majority are too obviously written for apurpose.There is less need for written-to-order books in this field than in anyother since most books that are acceptable in terms of writing and content have some developmental values.Values such as family relations, getting along with other children, adjusting to the community, solving oradjusting to the problems of brokenhomes, growth in understandingpeople of cultures, races, religions,nationalities, economic levels otherthan one's own — all these and manyothers are expressed in good children's books. The values in thesebooks are an integral part, either ofa character or a situation and thusare more realistic and more effectivethan in books obviously written toteach a lesson.The points mentioned thus far are only a few of the many that must beconsidered in deciding whether achildren's book should be recommended or not. Each year the Centerreviews approximately 700 books. Ofthese about 450 are recommendedfor use by homes, schools, and publiclibraries.The evaluations of the books reviewed are made available throughthe monthly Bulletin oj the Children's Book Center, which has 1,000readers in 42 states and 30 countriesabroad. The Bulletin lists all books,recommended or not, with criticalannotations indicating the strengthsand weaknesses of each. For recommended books, a grade level is given,and developmental values are indicated in code.Cooling-off periodAll of the books reviewed by theCenter are kept for a five year period,and each year the books publishedfive years before are re-evaluated.Books not recommended, or thathave outlived their usefulness, arepermanently removed from the collection and only those titles that seemto have a more lasting value arekept.The service collection of recommended books, containing approximately 4,000 volumes, is non-circulating and, though it seems odd, forthe use of adults only. AlthoughUniversity students and faculty makethe most use of the Center, it alsoprovides guidance for parents selecting books for their children's homelibraries, for teachers and librariansworking on courses of study or bookorders, and for writers and illustrators of children's books.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEICONOCLASTIC DR. GARROTT ALLEN CAME TO THE MIDWAY TO INTERN IN 1939, NOW IS PROFESSOR OF SURGERYWHOLE BLOOD ISN'TTHE WHOLE ANSWERBy Dr. J. Garrott AllenIT HAS GENERALLY been expected that frequent blood transfusions, given over the first three tofour weeks following irradiation injury, would prevent hemorrhage andimprove the rate of survival. In consequence, it has frequently beenrecommended that huge resources ofwhole blood be made available forcivil and military defense, for treatment in the irradiation sicknessphase of atomic disaster.Evidence that blood transfusionsmay be quite useless and possiblyharmful under these circumstances,however, has been found in our research at the University, in which,for obvious reasons, dogs were usedas subjects. (Of course transfusionswill still be vital for replacement oflost blood and for the treatment .ofshock resulting from the large numbers of burns, lacerations, and injurieswhich involve crushing. And theseloom statistically much larger amongthe effects of an atomic explosion.) The current study was undertakento determine whether the frequenttransfusion of blood to dogs wouldprevent or control bleeding and increase the rate of survival.- Fivegroups of animals were subjected toSafer Plasma TransfusionOrdinary methods of preservingblood plasma, by drying, freezing, orrefrigeration, are also equally goodmethods for preserving viruses in theplasma, Dr. Allen has reported recently to the American Associationof Blood Banks. However, the virusescan be killed by the simpler methodof storing the plasma at room temperatures. Plasma at the UniversityClinics has been stored at room temperature for a period of ten years,without a single patient developinga case of jaundice which could beattributed to blood plasma.Under ordinary methods of storing plasma in the United States, from2 to 15 per cent of the patients receiving transfusions have developedjaundice. This form of jaundice isconsidered to be caused by a virustransmitted from the donor. total body irradiation, receiving x-raydoses ranging from 175 to 450roentgens. The animals in eachgroup were divided so that halfserved for controls. The other halfreceived 5 cc. of blood per kilogramof body weight three times per week,beginning the fourth day after irradiation.Studies were made of the clottingmechanism, blood counts, and survival rates in all groups. In no groupwas there evidence that transfusionwas beneficial, and there was someevidence to suggest the possibility thatmore harm than benefit resulted.Transfusion reactions were observedin some cases, and the tendency tobleed was just as severe in the transfused as in the control groups. Therewas no evidence of benefit.These results should serve as anote of caution, lest that which seemsreasonable prove to be wrong. Itshould be clearly pointed out thatthe failure of blood to yield any improvement or prevention of latentirradiation sickness does not implythat blood and plasma will be unnecessary in fulfilling other criticallyimportant needs. But in irradiationdamage, it does not appear to be theanswer.DECEMBER, 1951 13The ARTHUR BAER CHATS WITH CHANCELLOR BEFORE LUNCHQualities of Alumnus-shipBy Arthur A. Baer '18I HAVE BEEN puzzling over themotives of the Committee onArrangements in suggesting that I, anon-entity, speak a few words to thisgroup of the illustrious and the lettered upon this memorable occasion.I have come to the conclusion thatthe committee wished to exhibit analumnus, an ordinary mine-run alumnus, not one who had grown up to bea tycoon in industry, or a fine scholarin his field, or a statesman in politics,but just a plain, simple alumnus, toillustrate unadulteratedly the homelyqualities of alumnus-ship.In a sense I probably qualify. TheUniversity granted me an undistinguished degree a long time ago, longbefore football became one of the professions, long before the era of bluejeans and existentialism. The University presented me to the competitiveworld, moderately well equipped witha representative assortment of tangibles and intangibles. The tangiblefacts I promptly forgot. The intangibles I have carried with me for allthese many years. One *of them isloyalty to my alma mater. I have deeppride in her aims and her accomplishments. I love my University.To be sure, soon after graduation,it became obvious that, for my ownpart, my education would produce forme neither fame nor fortune — neitherof which, indeed, seemed to be requisite for good living. But it became simultaneously evident that my education did enable me to find greaterenjoyment in the world in which Ilived, and understanding of it. Andso, inevitably, my enthusiasm as analumnus continued to wax.I have probably carried this enthusiasm too far. I am always slightlyembarrassed, when, on occasion, Mrs.Baer introduces me, somewhat maliciously, as "My husband, Arthur, aprofessional alumnus." At such moments, although I feel warmly somepride in the adjective, and the activities which more or less earned it, Ialso am uncomfortably conscious ofthe shortcomings implied. My emotions are in such moments quitemixed, as might be those of a manwho sees his mother-in-law driving hisCadillac over a cliff.What is an alumnus? I have lookedin several dictionaries for a definition.One reads : "a member of a graduatingclass of a school or college." This doesnot seem applicable in all cases. TheUniversity of Chicago, for example,produces alumni but has no graduating classes. To be sure, people get degrees here, almost any Friday orMonday, when they have completedvarious processes called orientationand comprehensives and whatnot, butthey can hardly be Called members ofa graduating class.Another definition states that analumnus is a male person who has been graduated from a school or university, and hastens to add that analumna is the female of the species.We cannot accept this. Especiallywhen we work in fund-raising activities, we cannot accept such a limitation, for we insist upon inscribingupon our alumni lists every possibleperson who ever attended a class, eventhough he may have flunked out atthe end of the first quarter.Let us try our own hand. Perhapsan alumnus is a person who has beenexposed to the benign and stimulating teachings of his college or university, and who continues to reflect itsinfluence throughout his life.The alumnus must do more, however. He cannot take for granted thecontinuing glory of his alma mater.A great university does not just happen. Nor does it always remain greatjust because once it was great. Thealumnus must recognize that he hasan obligation to assist in maintainingthe high standards of the university'spast. He has an obligation to criticizeand to praise, to understand and todefend. The alumnus must be readyand willing to cooperate constructively in the solution of problems;and, toughest of all, must acknowledge freely and cheerfully that, if hisalma mater is to maintain its standards, eminence, and usefulness to society, there must be, in its administration, continuing vital adjustmentto social changes.The head of a great universityneeds more from his alumni thanapproval or praise. He needs fromthem active and interested support,expressed in their recognition of thecritical importance of the financialstability of the institution, expressedin loyal confidence in the president,or in our case, the chancellor, expressed in a warm and vigorous unity.Obversely a university has also anobligation to its alumni. No alumnibody ever expected more of its university than the alumni body of theUniversity of Chicago; none was everbetter served.Chancellor Kimpton brings to hisimportant task a unique recognitionof the human relationships involvedin teaching and in learning. In properperspective he will carry this wisdominto the field of alumni relations. Hehas already demonstrated, in action,his understanding of the value of aninterested, active, loyal alumni body.The rapport already established between the new chancellor and thealumni promises much for the future.14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEf *¦ -. PIT.. <€* J"L^^^^^H I^^m^1INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER'S MCCAFFREY, TRUSTEE BELL, CHANCELLOR KIMPTON, MRS. KIMPTON, REV. SCHLOERBWE MUST MAKE OURSELVES UNDERSTOODChancellor Kimpton's Address to the Citizens of ChicagoTHIS MORNING, in the magnificent setting of Rockefeller Chapel,I became the sixth head of the University of Chicago. This evening, Ihave the privilege and responsibilityof addressing the citizens of this greatcity which has lent its name to thisgreat University. Whether the choiceof the Board of Trustees was a wiseone, only time will tell. I can onlygive you the dubious assurance that Iapproach the task with energy andhumility.The energy is an accident of youth,and the humility stems from my conviction that in the work ahead I needthe wisdom, counsel, and help of allof you. I do not say this lightly orwith any intent to please or flatter.The Board has chosen badly if itsought one who knew all the answers.This is our University in our city ofChicago, and I look to you, its citizens, to give me the guidance andassistance I need. Cooperatively, wecan make the University even greaterthan it is today, and even more of anornament to a city already rich in institutions of learning and culture. As abackground for my plea for guidance,may I describe the University to you,enumerate some of its problems, and try to indicate my conception of itspurpose.The history of our University beginsalmost three quarters of a century agoin the dream of the Board of Education of the Northern Baptist Convention to establish a. small Baptist college, doubtless to match thoseMethodists up in Evanston. It wasthe genius of William Rainey Harperand the generosity of John D. Rockefeller that took this dream and madea great university of it. With the fullknowledge, consent, and backing ofthe Baptists, it became a non-sectarian university, though it was thenand remains a Christian institution.Global problemsYou all know our site today on thesouth side Midway. The generosityof many friends has increased the sizeof our holdings until we now occupyapproximately 100 acres. Our lecturehalls, laboratories, offices, and dormitories occupy some 90 buildings whichcost approximately 50 million dollarsto build. It would be impossible toduplicate the physical plant today fortwice that figure; we now pay janitors salaries that skilled artisans re ceived in the early days of our building development.In addition to the principal installations at Chicago, we own and operate the Yerkes Observatory atWilliams Bay, Wisconsin, and have apart interest in another astronomicalobservatory in Texas, where I amassured the stars appear to better advantage in the winter. We own aninteresting institution, called ChicagoHouse in Luxor, Egypt, and we havearcheological excavations, called digs,going on in almost every country ofthe ancient world around the easternend of the Mediterranean Sea. Andsome of our problems in these countries rival those of the Anglo-IranianOil Company in kind if not in importance.We have temporary installations inother locations all over the world,where our scholars investigate meteorites, bones, fragments of the NewTestament, cosmic radiation, andmalaria. We have official exchangearrangements of professors and students with the continental universities of Frankfort and Paris.The University has on its academicpayroll a total of almost 1,000. Theseare all full-time people. I do not in-DECEMBER, 1951 15elude the occasional lecturers or part-time people. I hope you will notthink me immodest when I mentionthat of the 42 scientists in the state ofIllinois who have received the highesthonor of election to the NationalAcademy of Science, 30 are on thestaff of the University of Chicago.The University has, in addition, some5,000 non-academic employees, whorange all. the way from laborers tosome of the most skilled instrumentmakers and glass blowers in the world.These figures do not include any ofthe employees of the Argonne National Laboratory which we operatefor the Atomic Energy Commission,or any of the many others employedin defense projects which we carry onfor the Federal Government. TheUniversity then has a regular payrollof approximately 6,000 persons.To meet this payroll, along withthe expenses of laboratory equipment,books, and all the other elaborateparaphernalia of the academic world,we had a budget last year of a littleover 17 million dollars. Of thisamount, about 4 million comes fromthe income from our endowment, 5million from students fees, another 5million from patients in our hospitals,and some 2 million from gifts.To be quite frankIf you have been adding these figures, you see that I am about a million dollars short, and to be quitefrank about it, I am about a milliondollars short.In the mannered genteelism of theacademic world, this is politely referred to as an underwriting; in business it is brutally called an operatingdeficit; in government circles in morerecent years I believe it is referred toas the more abundant life. But moreabout this later when I talk about theproblems of the University.In addition to the 17 million dollars of actual operations cost, theUniversity has activities which areset up for various terms of years, somefinanced by private foundations orcorporations and some financed as apart of the national defense program,amounting to roughly 8 milliondollars.The University also operates theArgonne National Laboratory for theAtomic Energy Commission at thecurrent rate of 22 millions a year.Thus, the total financial transactions of the University are at present somewhat over 47 million dollars ayear. To many of you, this may notseem as staggering a total as it doesto me. I should mention, however,that in terms of financial transactions,Chicago is now second in the countryamong universities.I venture to say that a universitysuch as Chicago is an even more complicated administrative problem thanField's, Harvester, or Swift's. A university is divided up into innumerableparts, each with its own budget,personnel, and unique problems andpersonalities, none vince you that our University is acomplicated affair. Its administrationis complex, its accounting is almostincomprehensible, and its organization fits no known chart. The head ofsuch an institution has almost unlimited responsibility to his Board,alumni, faculty, students, and thepublic, and he has almost no power.He is dealing with faculty memberswho are among the outstanding menand women in their specialties in theworld. They are not employees in theusual sense of that word.of which yield toanything thatmight be calledstandardized treatment. A professorof Hittite and aprofessor of nuclear physics haveabout as much incommon as an excavation in Iranhas with the cyclotron.You probablyknow that our University is dividedinto the Divisionsof Biological Sciences, PhysicalSciences, SocialSciences, Humanities, and TheCollege ; and theprofessionalSchools of Law,Business, SocialService Administration, GraduateLibrary, and Divinity; and University Collegeand the OrientalInstitute.And most ofthese are subdivided into departments,institutes, and committees that teachand do research under the directionof various deans, directors and chairmen.Within our Biological SciencesDivision is a medical school, andwithin our Social Sciences Division isan elementary school that has some800 youngsters as students. Over1 1,000 students took work at the University last year.Perhaps I have said enough to con-INAUGURATION MARCHERS : HUTCHINS, NEF, HARVARD S CONANT,As a practical matter, he cannothire anybody or fire anybody; he cannot order anybody to do anything orstop doing anything. Becoming afaculty member is like becoming amember of a very exclusive club; and,once elected practically nothing candislodge him.I do not quarrel with this system;I merely mention it as one of theheadaches of educational administration. Our professors are given tenureand freedom in the same way as16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEjudges of our Supreme Court, and forthe same reasons. They must be secure in their positions and free toconduct their investigations if theyare to do what we expect of them —to seek the true and the good andmake them known freely throughoutthe world.The head of a great educationalinstitution, therefore, must work almost entirely by persuasion. And inthe event of disagreement, the persuasion of very bright and learned peopleis not a simple matter.Stanford's sterling, trustee bell, and chancellor kimptonThis much of what I have said isgeneral background. If you can bearwith me a little longer, I should liketo, talk about some of my problems asthe new chancellor of our University,especially those that cannot be solvedwithout your help and wisdom. Theyare all of a piece, and the order inwhich I mention them is an indexneither of their importance nor of thedifficulty of their solution.The first problem, one which weshare with the Illinois Institute of Technology, is the south side area inwhich our University is located. Sixtyyears ago, when the University wasfounded, it was the most desirableresidential district in the city; the carriages of Chicago's elite moved sedately down Drexel Avenue, and nobody dreamed of the process of decaythat would set in over the next halfcentury.Now, I do not wish to run downour neighborhood too much. The areaimmediately adjacent to the University is certainly a pleasant and convenient place tolive. It is the case,however, that it isno longer thoughtof as socially desirable, and thiscreates real problems in attractingboth students andfaculty.Oddly enough,if the area were aslum, it would bepossible to get various kinds of assistance t o clearit. When the problem is one of gradual decay, it ismuch more difficult to solve. It isone of the greatestproblems of myadministration totry somehow t oreverse this trend.I admire the successful effort o fHenry Heald andthe Illinois Institute in this connection; we mustgo and do likewise.A second problem is money. Inthe last ten yearsour budget has more than doubled.Only a part of this is due to increased activity; we were a big institution in 1941. The real explanation lies in the increased cost ofeverything from salaries to materials.And along with this has come atax situation which adversely affectslarge philanthropic giving. It isalmost impossible any longer foran individual to accumulate a largefortune. The day when a John D.Rockefeller could give the University of Chicago almost 35 million dollarsis past.It is hard for us to meet this situation of rising costs and decreasingindividual net income. The productsof a university do not have a pricetag that we can alter very materiallyto pass along our rising costs to theconsumer.One of our jobs is research and,while the results are of great value tohuman welfare, they are not sold.Knowledge is increased for its ownsake and for the betterment of mankind. In our teaching role, we havedoubled our tuition in the last tenyears, but our tuition income todayrepresents only about one-fourth ofour yearly budget. And our yearlycharge of $600 at present is about allthe market will bear.The only answers that I can seeare a little more austerity in our operations, an increase in the numberof gifts to the University, and, aboveall else, a constancy of integrity andquality that merits the philanthropyof our fellow citizens.May I say in this connection thatI am not unhappy about our recentprogress. Last year, we received ingifts and bequests $5,800,000, over amillion dollars more than the yearbefore. Unfortunately, only about twomillion of this amount could beapplied to support our operatingbudget; the rest was for restricteditems outside the regular budget. Yetthis means that our University is thirdor fourth among the universities ofthe world in gift income.What a jeivelYou will be interested to know thatwe have probably received more fromAmerican industry than any otheruniversity, and it is our pride that weinclude among our substantial donorssuch firms as the Aluminum Company, du Pont, Standard Oil of Indiana, Standard Oil of New Jersey,Pittsburgh Plate Glass, General Electric, and U. S. Steel. Here in Chicago,we take particular pride in having thesupport of International Harvester,Sears Roebuck, Marshall Field,Crane Company, and a score ofothers.But I am still short a million dollars. We must still find a means ofgetting more money.The problem that concerns me most— even more than our neighborhoodand money — is the place and standingDECEMBER, 1951 17of our University in our community.I shall be very frank and even bluntabout it. The city of Chicago does notlike the University of Chicago verymuch.The University is thought of as acold, aloof, and indifferent place, fullof communist professors and students.One way of looking at this, I suppose,is to say that this is the city's toughluck; if it refuses to see what a jewelthe institution is in its cultural crown,let the city go hang. I do not viewthe matter in this way. The problemis one of proper communication between town and gown, and if theselines have broken down over theyears, it must have been partly ourown fault; it is certainly our problem at the University to re-establishthem.Classified workWe must make ourselves understoodand put an end to misunderstanding;we must make ourselves known thatwe may become favorably known. Ihope you will forgive me if I speakabout some of the activities and possessions of the University which areeither unknown or unappreciated byour city.Our Board of Trustees consists ofsome of the most distinguished andpublic-spirited men in the city of Chicago. No one can fail to be impressedwith the character and quality of themen who devote so much of their timeto the service of the University. Theyare so good that we have to sharethem with the other philanthropicenterprises of our city and even, veryreluctantly, with Harvard, Yale,Princeton, and M.I.T.In any poll of experts that hasever been taken, the faculty of theUniversity of Chicago has been ratedamong the first three or four amongthe institutions of the world. There isnot, so far as I know, a single memberof the Communist Party on thisfaculty, or even anyone sympathetic toCommunism. I have not only my ownrather extensive acquaintance amongthe faculty to go on, but, in addition,the fact that two legislative investigations have been .unable to turn up asingle Communist. Indeed, we are inthe odd situation of having our Department of Economics written up ina recent issue of Fortune magazineas being one of the last strongholdsof classical, free-enterprise economics;and we have been criticized for pos sessing no really adequate representative of the Keynesian view.First, the office of Scientific Research and Development, and thenthe United States Army, during thewar, felt sufficient confidence in theUniversity of Chicago to choose it asone of the important centers for workon the highly classified atomic bombproject; and, as you know, the firstnuclear chain reaction in the worldoccurred on Stagg Field in 1942. TheAtomic Energy Commission has hadenough confidence in both our loyaltyand our quality to ask us to operatethe highly important Argonne National Laboratory for them since thewar.To be sure, there are professors onour campus who speak out for freedom of speech and the press, for theamelioration of social injustices, andfor peace. Now, the Communists pretend to call for these things, too; but,fortunately, not all who call for freedom, for a better society, and forpeace are Communists. In this same context, may I mention our students? Now, I like students and I have worked closely withthem in several major universities.They are pretty much all alike allover the world, and, in fact, very likeyou and me when we were youngerand hadn't yet assumed responsibilities. Universally, it is a time of rebellion against authority and tradition.We allow our students a great dealof freedom to talk, to protest, to organize, and even to shout. Thedreamy-eyed minority always shoutthe loudest, and occasionally somebody hears them, but, like the youngall over the world, they grow up, getjobs, raise families, and become thebackbone of the community. Andtwenty-five years hence they wonderwhat makes the younger generationprotest, organize and shout. This isthe way it is, always has been, andalways will be.I believe it is true to say that wehave not been remiss in our service toour community. Last year, patientsFirst Ladyof the MidwayMarcia Drennon Kimptongenuinely likes people. Thisis one of her most valuable assets,since her biggest job as "first ladyof the Midway" is being hostessat University events and "at home"parties.Her fall social calendar startedoff with the .annual chancellor'sreception for more than 2,000 newstudents, an at-home party for 100newcomers to the University Settlement League, and a dinner forthe Trustees. And that's just thebeginning. Since the "Midway Mansion" is aspacious one, the blue-eyed Mrs.Kimpton happily has managed to in-stal her beloved antiques — one of herhobbies — along with the modernfurnishings of the house.Needlepoint is a favorite occupation for* Mrs. Kimpton. She and hermother worked out the family crestfor the dining room chairs, andMarcia has just completed the lastof . 12 pieces. Floral arrangementsconstitute another of her special interests.While the Kimptons were at Stanford, Marcia discovered a hiddentalent in her astonishing husband-that he is an excellent cook, specializing in barbecued chicken, steak, andturkey. Up to now this specialty hasbeen performed outdoors, but bothLarry and Marcia hope to find timehere to keep his talent a-broilingover their Chicago fireplace.Marcia Kimpton is no stranger tothe Midway. She and Larry (whowas then administrative head of theUniversity's atomic project) weremarried in the Thorndike Hiltonchapel in 1945. (It was the secondmarriage for both.)Larry and Marcia are both fromKansas City, and it was a friend inthat metropolis — Mrs. C. S. Demaree— who was instrumental in creatingthe marriage eight years ago.

Our Industrial Relations Center is rendering real service toChicago industry on problems of management and labor.We constantly provide lectures andcultural events that bring to Chicagosuch figures as T. S. Eliot, RalphBunche, and Nehru. We even amuseour friends each year with the Quadrangle Club Revels in which we pokefun at the University of Chicago, itschancellor, and its professors. If Icontinue, I shall sound boastful and Idon't intend to. The fault is still partlyours; we have lost the power of communicating with those closest to us.It is the purpose of a universityto seek the truth, and to disseminateit, when found, freely throughout theworld. The first part of this purposeis concerned with research and thesecond with teaching, broadly conceived.It is out of basic research, the extension of human knowledge, thatthat progress in the practical affairsof life becomes possible. It will be outof a basic study of growth that cancerence Kimpton, then a philosophyrofessor at the University of KansasPity, she phoned the Drennon home&nd said, "Marcia, I've just seen the.nan you are going to marry. When can you come to dinner?" Mrs.Demaree's match-making party didthe trick, and the two principalguests have been having dinnertogether ever since. — A.N. P.'ESTA hutchins, marcia kimpton, and husbands, exchange greetings will become understood and solvedas a medical problem. It was out ofpure research in mathematics andtheoretical physics that the composition of matter became sufficientlyunderstood so that the power of thechain reaction became an actuality.I believe we all understand research when it is concerned with suchthings as a cure for cancer or aninquiry into the nature and structureof the nucleus of the atom. We understand these things because newtechniques result for the treatmentof disease and more violent explosions can be made to occur undercontrolled conditions.Higher dedicationBut a university has a higher dedication than explosions or even therelief of human suffering. It believesthat knowledge ought to be acquiredfor its own sake, that the search fortruth has no particular end beyonditself. Thus we study the beginningsof our civilization in ancient Babylonia, the movement of the stars inthe Southern Hemisphere, the originsof American words, the philosophicalviewpoint of the Greeks — none ofwhich has a practical application tomuch of anything.If you ask why we do this andwhether it is worth doing, I can onlyanswer that man is so constitutedthat he desires to know the true, thegood, and the beautiful, and one ofthe primary purposes of a universityis to satisfy this deep human cravingfor knowledge. And even from thepractical point of view the instinct issound, since practical discoveries areoften based on what had seemeduseless knowledge.If a university is really and seriously to pursue this high purpose,its scholars must be free to followwherever the path of discovery maylead them, and brave enough to announce to the world what they haveseen along the way.But knowledge of truth, of goodand evil, are not easily come by, for,to mere humans, truth is seldom theresult of pure inspiration or revelation. It most often comes about asan evolution in the exchange of ideas.Thus, a university's staff will andmust dispute with one another andwith those outside the university, andit is part of the policy of a great university to tolerate, indeed to promote,the discussion of issues no matter howDECEMBER, 1951 19controversial they may be. And thisholds in the fields of American foreign policy and economics quite asmuch as it does in astronomy andzoology.A good university must not be, itcannot be, dedicated to any specialdoctrine. In the very best sense,therefore, a good university is bothconservative and liberal. It is conservative in holding to the fundamental values of our civilization. Itis liberal in providing freedom andsecurity for the growth and experimentation of ideas. Thus it is thatconservatism and liberalism meet atthis high level in a university.There is also a meeting, a veryunfortunate meeting, when conservatism becomes reaction and liberalismbecomes leftism. So it is that theFOUR WEEKS AFTER his removal from the editorship of theChicago Maroon, an event whicharoused a considerable furor, on thecampus and across the country, AlanKimmel reported, from the pit ofKent theater, his impressions of IronCurtain Europe. Most of the members of his audience of 92 personsappeared to be hostile, but Kimmel, apleasant-appearing youth with close-cropped hair, given to short quickgestures when speaking, arranged several stacks of notes before him andproceeded to speak, unruffled. Thelecture constituted evidence that hisfreedom at the University to reporton Russia as a friendly and peacefulnation had not been entirely abridged,though his privilege of so reporting reactionaries and the extreme leftwing unwittingly join together in aNazi Germany and a CommunistRussia — both as far as possible fromthe fundamental values for which weas a Christian civilization stand.Any university which holds itselfresolutely to its task runs the riskof being misunderstood and dislikedby a large mass of the people. ButI refuse to believe that this is inevitable and unavoidable. It canavoid the irritation created by itsappearance of aloofness and indifference; it can persuade people beyondits walls that it is not neglecting thereal needs of men and womenthrough basing its life on dreams;and it can patiently explain itself andits high purpose, if necessary, overand over again.from the Maroon editor's chair definitely had been.Kimmel got one of a series oflaughs from his unenthusiastic hearerswhen he reported, utterly deadpan,that a group of Russian students hadasked him, "What do you think ofour country? What are you going towrite in your paper back on the campus?" It was clear to the Kent audience that the question was obsolete.Unfortunately, some of the buffooneryof the opposition and some of theshouted recriminations of the Kim-melites, before and since, have combined to obscure somewhat the picture of what happened this fall in theStrange Case of the Maroon.One fact got the attention at thestart of the quarter: the Maroon was Ours is a great university, and iiis my job, with your help, to makeit ever better — better known, betterunderstood and better appreciatedby our community. Part of this joband perhaps the most importantpart, is getting an understanding ofthe purpose of the University — whatit stands for and what it is tryingto do.The role of a great university isthat of seeking to provide objectiveintellectual illumination. The Uni-versity of Chicago has not failed inits struggle progressively to realizethis goal. But we have certainlyfailed in the past in communicatingour purpose and our high dedication.This is my greatest problem and onethat I can solve only with your help.I earnestly seek it.suspended and its editor fired. Washe fired for being a communist? No.He may or may not have been or bea communist, party liner, pacifist, orsimply a lover of the good, the true,and the beautiful. Was he removedfrom office for editing a party linenewspaper? No. Though he was akey member of the Maroon's rulingclique last year, technically he hasbeen editor of not one single issue.Public opinion in the Universitygenerally was opposed to the management of the Maroon, which in the lastseveral years has apparently turnedthe paper into a distorted special-pleading organ. And Kimmel was theannointed of the clique which haddeveloped this kind of Maroon. Butthis was not what got him fired.THE 1951MAROONHASSLEAfter this fall's shakeup of the MaroonEditor John Hurst (left) finds it still isa tough job to make a good newspaperopen window lets fresh air into maroon office20 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE(The list of the paper's sins lastyear is long, but perhaps a couple0f pointed examples will suffice.When George Kennan, famous asthe State Department's "Mr. X", gavea series of Walgreen lectures in Man-del Hall last spring, curiously enoughthe Maroon failed to regard them asnews worthy of being called to theattention of the Midway community.Party line — though non-University —issues, such as the Willie McGee case,got plenty of space.)Is it possible that the sins of lastyear are being visited upon an innocent victim this year? No. Machinecontrol of Maroon succession was verytight. It took a courageous individual— and there were some — to remainvery long on the staff in disagreementwith the stridently expressed views ofthe paper's controlling group. And itwould have taken more than merecourage to get elected editor. Whatit took was acceptance, or at leastacquiescence.Did the University object to theMaroon just because it looked andacted Red? Privately, perhaps, butofficially no. If a group of the morefluffy-minded campus socialites hadcaptured the paper and devoted itheavily to detailing their own dates,teas and dances, there would havebeen equally large objection. (If ithad been necessary to remove the editor of such a paper, the Universitywould have been spared quite a lotof worry, since the cries of speechfreedom and constitutional rightswould probably have been raised lessloudly. )Were the steps taken to change themanagement of the Maroon actuallyin violation of free speech or press?There are two answers to this one-one with regard to the effective, operational situation, the other in relation to the nature of the Maroon itself. Effectively, the drastic actionof suspending the Maroon and firingits chief really promoted freedom ofexpression, which had been pretty wellthrottled under the Maroon's previousregime?.News monopolyBut shouldn't the University defend to the death the paper's rightto its say? Not necessarily, because ofthe nature of the Maroon, whichmakes the constitutional guarantee offree press something less than rele vant. The University has an interestin the Maroon. This interest is lessthan if the Maroon were a house organ, published by a University-hiredstaff. But it is certainly a greater interest than the University has in, say,the Chicago Daily News, which alsoprints news about the University, butis obviously independent of it.The University has, and always hashad, an inherent — ordinarily latent —power over any student activity, especially one which operates a monopolyin such a key sphere as news presentation, and which enjoys a monopolyof University facilities. Usually thispower lies dormant, as did that of,say, President Lincoln, until in acritical situation, he arbitrarily suppressed a Chicago newspaper. (TheConstitution, remember, declares onlythat "Congress shall make no law ..."and not that the executive may notact.)Profit vs. profit motiveFurthermore, as long as we are considering constitutional matters, a partyline campus newspaper may, in thethoughtful opinion of one Chicagostudent of the law, actually be engaged in violating the law of theland, not merely the University'ssense of fair play. In the light — orhalf-light — of the Supreme Court'sdecision in the the Dennis case, acampus newspaper might be considered to be in violation of the law ifits activities could be shown to consistof "teaching and advocating . . ."This is something that a diehardfriend of press freedom may objectto, but his objection would have tobe raised before the Justices of theCourt, not the Dean's office.Since its earliest days, the Maroonfrequently has been in hot water. Ifit was not arbitrarily deciding whichstudents constituted campus "Society," it was fighting with Harry Gideonse about the Value of Facts. Ifit was not invoking wrath from onhigh by proposing an end to compulsory chapel, it was doing so byprinting pseudo-salacious words orpictures, or getting itself into financialmuddles. In all these things the Maroon has not differed greatly from itself from year to year, or from college newspapers everywhere — exceptin those institutions in which the influence of bustling journalism schoolshas so over-professionalized student papers as to make them as dull as thecommercial press they mimic.In earlier times, when the Maroonfell under machine control, the machine usually was a fraternity, or acoalition of fraternities. The politicking was not as tense, the results notas obvious in the paper's columns,and the counteracting measures not asviolent. More recently, several thingsstrengthened the hand of the left winggroup who held the reins. For onething, the Maroon is now a nonprofit organization, and its product isdistributed free. Lack of profits in thepast originally led to this set-up, butlack of a profit motive has, since itwas instituted, certainly discouragedbusiness-minded students from joiningup.Second, the Maroon was reorganized under the Student Bill of Rightswhich gave it, at least nominally,full autonomy over all importantphases of its own affairs, providingthat the only judge of its policies andappointments should be itself.Third, through editorial techniquessuch as not regularly covering news-beats, the editor, including the quasi-independent page-editor, was givenfull power to name his news or toignore it, to keep his staff overloadedor as excruciatingly idle as he mightchoose. Put these together, and theyproduce a poor paper and a tightorganization. It was an organizationwhich appeared to hold no seeds of itsown improvement.The reform tempest began lastspring, when Joseph Schwab, a fairlyyouthful professor with wide-ranginginterests, astonished members of theFaculty- Student Committee by arisingin a meeting and blasting the paperfor its faults of commission and omission. "Lousy" was the word he used,and he said he thought the Maroonhad reached the lowest point it hadever achieved.Gordian knotSchwab's attack raised considerablehullabaloo on the campus, and DeanStrozier, who had been worriedly considering the state of the Maroon forsome time, proposed a six-point program designed to deliver the paperfrom machine rule and irresponsibility. The Student Government, however, failed to act on the proposals,on the ground that the Bill of RightsDECEMBER, 1951 21forbade it to do so (which, takenliterally, it did) .Under these rules, the machine hadmanaged to maintain working controlover the paper, though not withoutsome intramural turmoil, by makingsure that the dissenters could be outvoted by the faithful. The numberof dissenters was kept thus conveniently low by making their life miserable, by overwork, by under-work,or simply by not printing their stories. The existence of what resistancethere was is somewhat surprising.A committee of faculty memberscalled the University's action in firing and suspending a "cutting of theGordian knot." In a sense this wasaccurate, since the Maroon affairhad achieved a sort of impasse. Actually the University relied for justification of the action on another proviso in the Bill of Rights. This assertsthat the right of students to engage inoff-campus activities may not beabridged, "provided they do not claimto represent the University." Kimmelhad been listed — as editor of the Maroon though this was ostensibly forpurposes of identification only — as asponsor of the East Berlin rally, andthis without consent of the paper.Divided reactionSince Student Government wouldnot act, the University did, on thelegal ground (as outlined in theDean's clarifying letter) that Kimmelhad been using the good name of theMaroon and the University in vain.But there also was some feeling inthe University that acting on thistechnicality, thus denying the disclaimer on the East Berlin letterheads,might cause future embarrassment inthe case of other members of theUniversity who might wish to speakout as citizens, dissociating themselvesfrom their University connections.Thus, in the letter in which Kimmel was notified that he was out, thename-in-vain rationale was notstressed. This letter stated that Kim-mel's participation in the East BerlinFestival itself indicated an unfitnessto edit a paper representative of theMidway community.This was what brought the affairinto focus for the Maroon's big-timecontemporaries of the daily press.They were aware that the East Berlin rally was Red-run. Therefore,they interpreted Kimmel's firing as an action against the holding of Redviews. This was an elision leading toinaccurate interpretation. A carefulreading of the letter would have indicated that Kimmel could have beenfired on the grounds of possessingpoor judgment — assuming that theUniversity could fire at all — for attending any odd meeting whose flavor might mark him as being out ofstep with the University: a convention of astrologers, perhaps, or theAmerican Sunbathing Association.This assumes, of course, that sympathy with the motives of these organizations would be demonstrated,and that such sympathy would warpan editor's representative expressionof campus opinion (which again isa phrase whose meaning is a littlehard to get at).As might have been anticipated atChicago, campus opinion over thefiring was divided, probably lessamong various factions as within thethinking of each individual. Thenearly universal view was that theUniversity had done a good thing ina bad, or at least precipitate, way.Also as could have been expected atChicago, there were about as manyalternative means proposed for gaining the desired end — after the fact —as there are inhabitants of the CityGray. But the sigh of relief thatsomebody had "done something aboutthe Maroon" was almost audible.As it turned out, the left wing faction on the Maroon, though it hadapparently suffered a mortal blow,still didn't surrender abjectly. Although petition-signing students hadindicated about a 1,600 to 200 ratioin favor of the action (though notof the method employed), and although the Council of the UniversitySenate and other faculty expressionsindicated a similar view, the Maroontook things into its own hands, apparently resolved to go down fighting,and declared that since Kimmel wasnot on campus, a vacancy existed inthe editorship of the Maroon.Compromise candidateThis move neatly by-passed allthe arguments about whether Kimmel was fit or unfit, and whether hehad violated the name-in-vain proviso. However, Student Governmentconfirmed the declaration that theeditorship was open. Here the OldGuard encountered a problem not uncommon among the disputatiouslyparliamentary-minded — they split.The extremists held to the view thatKimmel or a like-minded studentshould be elected as a gesture of defiance. Other members of the erstwhile majority took a more moderateview, and in the election, a candidateof the minority, was elected.The new, and so far provisionaleditor is John V. Hurst, 25, a studentof political science working toward hisMaster's degree. (He has shaved offthe struggling chin whiskers since theaccompanying picture was made.)He has worked for more than twoyears for a chain of neighborhoodpapers in Chicago, acquiring therebymore than average journalistic proficiency, by Maroon standard's.Biting the handThe hue and cry about the University's decision had one effect whichprobably will achieve the obective ofmaking the Maroon a more acceptable campus organ. It needled somethirty students, heretofore among theunrepresented, out of their apathyand into entering Maroon staff apprenticeships. Since Hurst enteredthe editorship with a staff ratherheavily loaded with the Old Guard,the maturation of a big new batchof staff members presumably not encumbered with similar views ultimately should give him a working controlover the paper, if the newcomers don'tlose their enthusiasm. Hurst's firstfew issues leaned over backwards inan effort to indicate the Maroon'scontinuing independence and fighting spirit, even as his predecessors-last year or in ages gone by."My main objective," Hurst declared, "is developing the journalisticcapacities of both the Maroon andits staff. I am going to concentrate onaccurate and competent writing, andin general take steps to make theMaroon a credit to the University. Tomy mind, this includes absolute freedom and independence for the Maroon to call the shots as they are."In other words, although he wasthe choice of the staff minoritywhich beat the clique — with the aidof an assist from the Administration— Hurst will have no qualms aboutbiting the hand that gave him theassist. This is probably a proper approach for a Maroon editor. — D.M.22 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINECLASS NEWS1897Burt Brown Barker, who is an authorityon Dr. John McLoughlin and continues tointerest himself in the unpublished andeven unknown materials surrounding theMcLoughlin era, was a brief visitor atAlumni House recently.

Snell writes from CherokeeCottage, S. C, that he has started intobusiness again, at the age of 74— doing nursery and landscape work. He is a life honorary member of both the American andSouthern Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives.1901Dr. Fred Adair, Professor Emeritus ofObstetrics and Gynecology, writes from Maitland, Fla., that he has been re-electedpresident of the American Committee onMaternal Welfare at the annual meetingheld in Atlantic-City last June.Nellie May Griggs (Mrs. W. D. Van Voorhis) is beginning her third year as associatepastor of the First Christian Church ofCharleston, W. Va., the post she has heldsince her husband's death four years ago.1902Clara L. Johnston (Mrs. F. A. Hitt), celebrated her 85th birthday last July 22 andhas these kind words to say about her AlmaMater: "I remember very pleasantly themany friends I made while a student atthe U. of C. I feel that my work there hasmade my life fuller and happier."1906Charles A. Katherman, Rush MD '06,writes that he is still in active practice inindustrial medicine and surgery in SiouxFalls, Iowa."Deliberate restlessness"Operating on the theory that one visitis worth 100 lectures, Dr. Joseph Werlin,AM '26, PhD 'Sl, sociologist, and directorof the International Study Center of theUniversity of Houston, realized a long-timedream last summer when at last, with thecooperation of the University of Paris, hewas able to open a study center in Europe.This past summer the accents of Texaswere heard in many a Parisian cathedral,museum, or bistro, as some 51 teachers,students, business people and housewives,under the sponsorship of Dr. Werlin's foreign study program, spent mornings in lectures at the Sorbonne, afternoons on fieldtrips, and evenings at "L'Opera."One member of this group of student-tourists, was a vivacious 75-year-old teacher and mother of seven, who set the pacefor the whole group with her brisk walksthrough museums, her climbs up windingJOSEPH AND ROSELLA WERLIN stone stairs of French chateaux, and her indefatigable note-taking at lectures. On herfirst trip to Europe, she had the time ofher life. The group completed their summer abroad with a motor tour throughnine western European countries.In describing his program, Dr. Werlinsaid, "We want to get more people world-minded— to implant the seeds of restlessness deliberately." Such seeds were plantedeight years ago when Dr. Werlin organizedand conducted the first of his summer centers abroad— in Mexico.Last June, 31 students flew south of theborder to study Spanish, Mexican folkloreand sociology. The Mexican governmenthas awarded Werlin the "DistinguishedVisitor Diploma and Medal" for his contributions to the cause of Mexican-American friendship.With the encouragement of Universityofficials and the financial generosity ofHouston philanthropist M. M. Feld, Werlin has expanded his "college on wheels-wings-sails" to Cuba, Guatemala, and now,Europe.The program, which offers college credit,is organized to familiarize students with theculture, social conditions, and spirit of thecountries visted. Dr. Werln hopes thatthe next step will be a center in the NearEast.Dr. Werlin gets a big assist in this program from his wife, Rosella Horowitz, ex'30, writer and publicity executive, whose"publicity with a punch" has received widerecognition in the Southwest area, as wellas in Who's Who in America. The Werlinsare represented at the University of Chicago by their son, Herbert Holland"Dutchy" Werlin, a student in the College.They have. two other children: Joella, 13,and six-year old Ernie Pyle Werlin.— A.N .P.
