LeavittAssociate Professor, School of BusinessJ. HE WORD "businesslike" has alot of connotations — it suggests orderliness, regularity, system, efficiencyof effort. It even suggests cool,impersonal objectivity. Now theseare all nice connotations which businessmen, scientists, and even socialscientists probably all approve of inthe conduct of our business and professional affairs. So I'm not objecting to the propriety of businessmenacting businesslike; I will not evenclaim that they are not really businesslike in general. But I will claimthat in matters of human relationsmany of them are actually prettyunbusinesslike — and more than that,they are actually unbusinesslike primarily because they are trying sohard to be businesslike.To put it another way, undue pressure for orderly and impersonal objectivity in thinking and acting may,and often does, lead to their opposites — disorderly and highly personalizedsubjective thinking and acting.We should be concerned with theeffects of mistaking the glitter for theThe one-thousand men (left)are participating in the secondannual Management Conference,sponsored by the School ofBusiness and the Executive Program Club (see page 4). Theabove article was presented tothe Executive Program Clubearlier this year, by ProfessorLeavitt, who has had occasion tobe involved in both the businessand academic world. After receiving his Ph.D. from M.I.T.,Professor Leavitt ended up asVice-President of Nejelski &Co., Inc., a management consultant firm. He is 32.3gold; with applying the same yardstick of what is "really" businessliketo human relations, that we apply toproduction problems or paperwork.For what are the signs of "businesslike" activity in production? Theyare signs like sequential, stepwise flowfrom raw material to finished product; careful controls over the behavior of men and machines, eachcarefully restricted to a special uniquesphere of activity — and so on.Now what are the signs, let us say,of a businesslike committee meeting?Sequential, stepwise progress throughthe agenda? Careful controls overwho speaks when, through the mechanism of parliamentary procedure?Each man talking only about his special area of knowledge? Many businessmen would say yes; that obviouslythese are the signs of order and system; and this is therefore businesslike; and in turn, therefore good. Butmany social scientists, including thisone, would say "no," or at least "notnecessarily." But let us take a littlecloser look at the businessman's "yes."Many businessmen offer many notions about the right ways to dealwith business problems involving people. But some are more common thanothers. These are among the mostpopular:— Let's keep personal feelings outof this.— Let's stick to the facts.— Let's not get emotional.—Let's not lose our tempers.¦ — Let's not get off the subject.— Or, in short, let's be businesslike.Now, why would anyone want tocomplain about perfectly sensiblesentiments like these?Part of the dealFirst, it seems to me that in business saying, "Let's keep personalfeelings out of this" is like a salesmanbawling out a customer for wantingto know about price. Personal feelings are part of the deal. You can notkeep them out; you can only sit onthem temporarily. If you try to getyour people to keep personality issuesout of their activities all you mayreally do is teach them to behave likethe three little monkeys. You teachthem to hear no, see no, and speak nofeelings; and thereby, to deny theexistence of an important part of reality. The trouble is that feelings exist,and influence the way people behave.For example, consider again thatever increasing industrial blight, thecommittee meeting. Every one of ushas seen committee meetings go awry,apparently because "personalities" SPEAKERS SPANG AND SLICHTER AWAIT THEIR TURN WHILE DEAN JEUCK SPEAKSDILLARA-DOLLARO:'NCE AGAIN the School ofBusiness, and the Executive Program Club, pulled off a successfulall-day Management Conference inChicago for business leaders of theMidwest. More than one -thousandexecutives met at the Conrad Hilton late in April to hear speakers,dine, and separate into five activediscussion groups.The morning session, opened byDean of the School of BusinessJohn E. Jeuck, had Robert E. Wilson, Chairman of Standard Oil ofIndiana. He introduced Sumner H.Slichter, Harvard's Elder Statesman in economics. Professor Slichter spoke on "The Business Out-Look."Second speaker in the morningwas Joseph P. Spang, Jr., President, the Gillette Company. Mr.Spang's subject was "The Challenge of Tomorrow's Market,"which he felt to be heartening.The luncheon speaker, introduced by Chancellor Kimpton, wasGardner Cowles, publisher of LookMagazine and The Des MoinesRegister. Mr. Cowles, speaking on"Foreign Trade and DomesticProsperity," declared our present trade policies are shoving the worldtoward intensified economic nationalism and political division. Mr.Cowles went on to say that "unlesswe are willing to lower our tariff, Ifail to see how we can reasonablycontinue to press other countries tolower their barriers to trade witheach other."After lunch the audience broke upinto five panels. The group on "Planning and Building an Organization,"was chaired by W. N. Mitchell, partner in the A. T. Kearney Company.Mr. Mitchell is also a ProfessionalLecturer in the Executive Program.Other members of the panel wereRex Reeder, Executive Vice-President, the Marine National ExchangeBank, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; PerryRohrer, of Rohrer, Hibler and Rep-logle; and Neele Sterns, Vice-President of Inland Steel. ,The panel discussing "CapitalSources and Needs" was led by University Professor of Finance MarshallD. Ketchum. With him were Christian E. Jarchow, Executive Vice-President, International Harvester;Robert B. Patrick, Financial Vice-President, Bankers Life; M. DuttonMorehouse, Manager Brown Brothers,4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEHarriman and Company; JosephPois, Vice-President and Treasurer, Signode Steel; and WilliamJ. Vatter, Professor of Accountingat the University.The panel on "Human Behaviorand Industry" had Thomas H.Coulter, Chief Executive Officer ofthe Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry as its chairman. Other members were Dr.Franz Alexander, Director of theInstitute for Psychoanalysis; William G. Caples, Vice-President ofInland Steel; and Irving B. Harris,Chairman of the Board, ScienceResearch Associates."Selling and the Social Sciences"was led by Professor George H.Brown. Professor David Riesman;Ernest Dichter, President of theInstitute for Research in Mass Motivations; and Associate ProfessorsWilliam E. Henry and Harold J.Leavitt were also on the panel.The fifth panel, "Profitably Expanding the Small Business," waschaired by Joseph K. Wexman,President of the Phoenix FinanceCompany. He was joined by ArnoldH. Maremont, President of Mare-mont Automotive Products; CyrilC. Herrmann, Associate Directorof the Executive DevelopmentProgram, M.I.T.; and J. VincentO'Neill, President and Chairman ofthe Board, Mercantile NationalBank.LOOK PUBLISHER, GARDNER COWLESJUNE, 1954 have crept in; because, for instance,some one becomes more and moredefensive about his ideas and moreand more stubborn and unbending.And therefore, you may say, isn't thatkind of thing proof that personalitieshave to be kept out?I might go along more readily ifyou can show me how to keep suchissues out. I certainly do not believethey're kept out just because everybody says they are out, any morethan you can talk yourself out ofyour shadow. Nor do I believe anyone should leave his personality outside the meeting room along with hishat. It may be that the best thing todo with personalities is let them in.recognize them and deal with them.It may look unbusinesslike to discusssome one's feelings and emotions, butfailure to bring them out into theopen just leaves them undergroundwhere they can sabotage at will.Of course it is not easy to talkabout feelings out loud. It is embarrassing and difficult. But maybe notas embarrassing as just shutting upcan sometimes be; and there are techniques for doing it.It is for the same kinds of reasonsthat I worry about businessmen's emphasis on "sticking to the facts" orkeeping "objective" or "controllingemotions." These ideas are just psychologically impractical. Feelings arejust as real, just as relevant in humanorganizations as other facts, and it isjust as important that they be considered. Subjectivity is simply unavoidable in human thinking. To denyits presence is to kid ourselves. Theclosest we can get to objectivity isto recognize and consider subjectivebiases as much as we can.Tight coverThe military partially learned thislesson between the two World Wars.Apparently in World War I, soldierswere supposed to be brave and fearless. Fear was frowned upon as weakand unsoldierly. In World War II wegot smarter. The simple truth seemedto be that soldiers do get scared evenif we tell them not to. So, the sensible thing to do seemed to be to getsoldiers to recognize and understandfear. If we can admit we are scaredmaybe we can handle ourselves betterthan if we are ashamed or afraid toadmit it.Have we learned the same lessonin business? If anything, we are stillgoing the other way. For what do weteach our young men coming up? Theway to get ahead, we teach them, isto be sharp and cool and unemotionaland objective. But what do they learn? They learn to act sharp andcool and unemotional and objective.Just as the soldier in World War Iprobably learned to show bravadoand fearlessness. But this kind ofsurface appearance may not reflectwhat exists all the way through. Itmay be a tight cover that we clampover fear and insecurity and emotionality. The ulcer rate amongbusinessmen tends to support thisconclusion.Discipline?For if it is true that eur businesslike exterior is only a facade, it is notonly unhealthy for our business organizations, it is personally unhealthyfor individuals.It is unhealthy for organizations because decisions are made by a wholeman, not just his exterior, and consequently, decisions that may look factual and objective may actually andunknowingly be based on emotionalprejudice.We have seen the superior who forone reason or another takes a strongdislike to a subordinate. Such subordinates get whipped and batteredfor what any observer could see wereemotional reasons; but an elaboraterationale is used to cover the emotional truth. Officially, and often thesuperior really believes it himself, theman is being disciplined for trainingpurposes, to toughen him up, or toprotect the company's interests, andso on.The same element of unconsciousemotionality creeps in at another leveltoo. Market researchers might befamiliar with the problem of reporting back to management some unhappy comparison between his product and competitive products. Oftenit's not only personally dangerous tocommunicate such information, butmore often still the information isconveniently ignored for really emotional reasons; but the official reasonis an insufficient sample, or a methodological weakness in the study.I do not mean to imply that salesmanagers deserve blame for such behavior; but it would be easier to workefficiently if they came out and admitted their feelings — in this case theirconcern that recognizing inadequaciesin their own products would stir upfeelings of guilt and uncertainty whenthey tried to sell it.Denial of feelings is unhealthy forindividuals as well as for organizations because the social pressure toappear cool and objective may makeone close off some of his emotionalsafety valves and leave the pressureto build up unrecognized. If the pres-5sure is there, it will probably do damage somewhere in the organism.This happens for example, when aman is promoted into a job that turnsout too big for him. He struggles tohandle it and grows fearful and panicky when he realizes that he maynot be able to. But to show his fearwould label him weak and unbusinesslike so he suppresses it. Then hebegins to jump around a little — to lashout at subordinates for their "inefficiency" and "lack of initiative." Hewithdraws from his fellows and people begin to think he has a "swelledhead." He gets demanding and generally difficult — but he never admitshis feelings. Often before too longhis continuous high tension makeshim physically sick.There is a third danger to thisbusiness of denying feelings. Perhapsadvertising should not be singled out,but it strikes me that many advertising decisions illustrate the problem.The fact seems to be that we do notknow very much about how advertising does or does not work. But to be businesslike we have to act likewe do. There would be nothing inherently dangerous in such play acting if we knew we were putting on ashow, and if we knew that what wewere really using was a lot of good intuitive, sensitive judgment. But thepressure to be businesslike oftenmakes us abandon one of our besttools — our gut feelings — in favor ofthis rational, "objective" superstructure. Why not simply recognize thatat this point many of our decisionsmust be educated guesses, based onlargely imperfect information? Whynot recognize and train our guessingmechanisms? Why behave as thoughwe really know and can write downall the relevant objective facts?Smiling frontIt may be argued that business doesnot seem to have been crippled verymuch by these difficulties. In fact, ithas prospered pretty well despitethem. I think, though, that the trouble is getting worse and will getworse faster as industry gets evenmore technically complicated, as organizations get bigger and more differentiated, and as the specializedparts get more and more interdependent. Because then the interpersonalcompetition gets stiffer; the group andthe committee get to be more andmore important; and in general decisions have more and more to bemade and justified by groups ratherthan individuals.This tendency to sit on one's realfeelings so that we can put up a calm,smiling front is not all top management's fault. This kind of false frontbehavior is pretty much part of oursociety in general. We tend to worrymore about pleasing others than aboutbeing ourselves. So when a youngman comes into a business organization he tends to look for the "right"and "proper" ways of behaving, without having to be urged. In fact, it ishard for a superior to get a young,ambitious executive to be himself,even if he tries. And the issue iscomplicated by the fact that superiorsproperly want their subordinates tolearn to do the right and standardthings in their paperwork and physical job activities. To teach them thatthe right thing in some areas isto-do-as-the-boss-would-do, but inother areas the right thing is to dowhat fits one's own personality best —to teach this distinction is not alwayseasy.But if management can be self confident enough to relax and be itself,maybe the rest of the organization willfollow along.EXECUTIVE PROGRAM DIRECTOR H. E. WRAPP AND PROFESSOR HAROLD LEAVITT6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE"THIS GROWTH PATTERN (left) CONFORMS TO A CURVE KNOWN AS A LOGARITHMIC SPIRAL, OR EQUIANGULAR SPIRAL (right)"Life and Orderby Paul A. WeissProfessor of ZoologyACCORDING to the story, beautyand the beast became united and havebeen one ever since. Quite naturally.For beauty is order; life is order;hence, life is beauty. It is a syllogism,that simple . . . What all objects ofbeauty have in common that underlies, and makes us sense their beauty,is their display of regularity and consistency. We sense the rule of orderover randomness, of pattern overchaos, of law over accident. The patterns we perceive are both of spaceand time . . . What we admire asorder and beauty is but a product andan index of the measured orderlinessof the actions and interactions bywhich it has come about. Goethecalled architecture frozen music. Inthe same sense, organic form is frozendevelopment, and formal beauty reflects developmental order.Like trees in their tree rings, manyanimals preserve a record of theirperiodic growth in hard deposits, suchas shells, or horns, or snails. Some ofthem beat time, as it were, by marking equal intervals; and, if we measure the segments thus added, we note(see cross-section, above left) thateach new one is an exactly proportional, though magnified, versionof the immediately preceding one.It is not surprising that, for nearlytwo hundred and fifty years, this object has attracted the joint attention of biologists, mathematicians, andstudents of design. In general, thisgrowth pattern conforms to a curveknown as a logarithmic spiral — orequiangular spiral. It has many remarkable properties, for instance (seeabove, right), as the curve lengthensor "grows," geometrical similitude ofsuccessive sectors is preserved. Whatthis implies in actual fact is simplythat the width of the turns increasesat a fixed ratio to their length. Thisis indeed what you have sensed directly by looking at the section ofthe shell. The curve merely confirmsThese excerpts are from the VicePresidential address of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, given by ProfessorWeiss. Professor Weiss, who leavesthe University this month to become a Member of the RockefellerInstitute for Medical Research, isalso chairman of the Division ofBiology and Agriculture, the National Research Council.The sample illustrations on thispage and the following two pages,were selected from the seventy-two colored slides which he usedin his lecture. They are presentedhere as examples of the similarityof forms found in nature, the laboratory, and art. and gives precision to your immediate impression . . .Yet, we realize that this is orderwithout minute precision, order within which there is scope. Let usnot confound rule with fixity, orderwith rigor, regularity with stereotyp-ism. Each individual is a unique formof expression of general norms andlaws. That uniqueness wants to beacknowledged and appreciated. It reveals the absolute stereotype as fiction, unnatural, unorganic; non- viableif it existed. Observation of naturethus justifies our instinctive rebellionagainst the stereotype, against a concept of order so mechanized and rigidas to make no allowance for somedegree of latitude for the individualevents within it.True organic order, as we knowit, sets only the general frame andpattern, leaving the precise ways ofexecution adjustable, and to that extent, indeterminate. Aesthetically,this principle finds expression in thesuperiority of handicraft, with no twoobjects wholly congruous, over themonotony of serial machine production. Biologically, it manifests itselfin the superiority of laws of development which only prescribe the modeof procedure, leaving the actual executing free to adapt itself to theexigencies of a world whose detailsare themselves unpredictable.

WESTBERG— "NAME SOME ANY"SOMETIMES, when people are introuble, not all the experts in theworld suffice. When the trouble issickness not all the specialists cancomplete the cure. Sometimes it takesa person who has specialized in beinghuman — part expert, part friend —who attends the sick as he would hisbrother, because that is the way hefeels about people in trouble. Sucha person is Granger E. Westberg,Chaplain for all the Clinics.Chaplain Westberg's non-saccharinfriendship is more than a duty performed for his pastoral calling. It is,as a wag once remarked about theritual of eating, a habit he picked upas a child. A Christian first and aLutheran thereafter, he simply practices what many others hesitatinglypreach. He can do no other.But most chaplains, of all faiths, arefriendly people. What makes thisforty-year-old man so unusual? To him, nothing — -even though he seemsto avoid the sack-cloth of false modesty. To a skeptical interviewer, however, the difference shows. Manychaplains are so "sympathetic" thatthe patients begin to feel sorry foxthem. The world is full of reassuringemptiness, vague intonations of faith,and poorly disguised lectures aboutthe unplumbed depths of courage. ToChaplain Westberg this is hardly theproper apparatus for one workingwith people who suddenly have tomeet lonely crises — severe emergencies ranging from profound anxietyover a simple operation to hopelessapathy in the face of a fatal disease.In his own words, from one of hismany articles: "Whenever a personis required to come into a hospital asa patient, this for him is an abruptand disconcerting experience becauseillness is often so closely related to theemotions and man's philosophy of life. And the hospital experience providesopportunity for people to do morecontemplating than usual. So, if hospital patients do more serious thinking than people on the outside, itseems logical that, wherever possible,wholesome direction for such thinkingought to be given patients who indicate willingness to accept it."Here the other side of ChaplainWestberg appears: the expert (whichhe also denies). For he is an expertlistener, as he has to be. Very oftenthe troubled patient does not knowexactly what is bothering him. Onlya trained listener can find out whatis on his mind.Is, then, the listener an amateurpsychiatrist? No, although the staffpsychiatrists are often notified aboutpatients who may need such therapy.The same is true of the staff socialworkers, who may receive word fromthe Chaplain's office that a patient's10 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEsource of concern is tied-up with hisfamily affairs. There is not, however,a breach of confidence. This will bedone only when the patient learnsthat such specialized help is available,and decides to accept it. In most casesthe Chaplain tries to have the patientsuggest to himself what his problemsare, and where the possible solutionsmay lie. When the patient understands this, when he understands thathe is not being pressured into anything, even talking, he may realizethat he can talk. What many do notrealize is that they are chatting withministers who have studied, and doneresearch, in a field now called Pastoral Psychology.About thirty years ago the Reverend Anton Boisen, recovering froma severe mental illness, became awarethat no ministers were then beingtrained directly to help people withpersonal problems and ills. With hislead in educating ministers to be morethan hand-holders, Pastoral Psychology has become a study whichproduces men who combine clinically-acquired knowledge with basic theological and psychological understanding. Today more hospitals retaintrained Chaplains who have doneclinical work in general hospitals,mental institutions, and — very often— prisons. The ideal place for producing such men is a universitywhich has both a good teaching hospital and a theological school.700 bedsSo Chicago is ideal. With its famousClinics on Fifty-Ninth street, it canoffer students of the Federated Theological Schools practical experience.The students may take courses inpsychology; one of which, ClinicalPastoral Care, is given by ChaplainWestberg, as Associate Professor onthe Federation's faculty. The University is also becoming a center forworkshops, where Chaplains and otherministers come for conferences withmedical staff members of the hospitals. (Commented one of a group ofministers after watching surgery:"Every minister should have the sameopportunity. Only in this way can theminister possibly understand what isinvolved as far as the patient, thedoctor, and he himself is concerned.")The students who want to becomeChaplains — as well as those who wishto use the experience to become moreeffective parish pastors — work in theClinics with Chaplain Westberg. Andhe can use them.The Clinics have seven hundredbeds. Last year there were thirty-onethousand patients in them, one at a time. While a patient is visited onlywhen he asks for it, or when a Doctoror nurse suggests it, one man cannothope to cover all the calls. At presentWestberg has ten part-time studentassistants who work with him in making his rounds. None of them needworry about getting exercise since awalk on one floor throughout thebuildings covers about three-quartersof a mile. There are only six floors.The chaseAt the start of one such walkathonthe Chaplain could not get out of hisoffice (S133) because of the phone,which he always answers. Would theChaplain confer with medical educators at the Texas Medical Center inHouston, next week? Yes. Thank you."Let's go," said he, "before it ringsagain."On the way to the sixth floor, between casual stops with doctors,nurses, and patients, he explained whywe were going to the recovery room,where patients are wheeled after anoperation. He had been in the operating room — gown, mask, and all —because the patient wanted him there.Now the patient, a woman, was waking up, and he had promised that he would be there then, too. When hecame out after a few minutes he saidthat she was fine. The operation, adelicate one, which he described, hadgone smoothly."Come on. Let's hear some music."In an empty operating room heswitched on a light and turned a knob.Soft music sounded."It relaxes people, particularly thoseunder 'local'," he said. "And theycan hear any kind they wish."Down on the third floor, using thestairs, to a nursing station where hewas greeted by three nurses and oneintern, he glanced through the charts,stopping at this name, then that."How is so-and-so today?""She's much better," a young nursesaid, "but she doesn't believe it.""I'll drop in."Mrs. So-and-so was reading a book.Introductions were made and theChaplain made a date to take her toRockefeller Chapel the next Sunday.She protested. How could she possibly leave her room? "Next Sunday," he said. "Get all dressed up."After walking a Chicago-size block,he greeted a student in a wheel chair.Where was George? He went home.So soon? Well, he'll write.Up two flights, through anotherCHAPLAIN, DOCTORS, AND NURSE COMPARE NOTES AT A CLINICS NURSING STATIONJUNE, 1954 11door, he knocked on the door. Thepretty occupant was sitting in herchair watching a TV cowboy movie.She had to, she explained, becausewhen her children visited her theycompared notes. She was not at allsure so much violence was good forthem. That was one of the reasonsshe was anxious to go home. TheChaplain and she discussed it for awhile, then he said he would drop inthe next day and talk about it somemore.Next, he went to a room down thehall. "Hi," said the pert young brun-nette in bed. "Where did Donnewrite 'Do not ask for whom the belltolls'?" A hasty consultation was held,and a decision made: the Sermons.She then told the Protestant ministerhow a Catholic doctor had been in terested in hearing about her Jewishreligion. In departing it was notedthat she was looking through Donne'sSermons. (Wrong. It is in the seventeenth Meditation.)The new Argonne Cancer ResearchHospital nursing station found theChaplain looking through more charts.In a double room, nearby, he heardhow one of the patients, a TexasBaptist, was pleased by an article ina national magazine on PresidentEisenhower's religious faith. The large,gregarious man felt that this wasgood for the country. Dinner arrived,and— at the request of the other patient — the Chaplain said Grace.On the way to another visit theprodding voice on the telepage calledout the Chaplain's- name. He movedto a campus phone and called hisNOW AND THEN COMES A CALL FOR A HOSPITAL VISIT IN THE SMALL, LONELY HOURS office. It was his secretary remindinghim that he had to speak to a groupof nurses on "Religion and Health"that night. Also there was a messagefrom his wife, regarding dinner withher and their three children. Theseitems noted, he began the secondhour of his stroll by leading the wayacross Drexel to Lying-in. There hemade four stops, telling each womanthat he was only saying hello, thistime. On the way back to his officehe explained why he did this.Four studies"Usually, of course, I go aroundalone," he said. "Most of the peoplediscuss intimate things. The rest haveto do with everyday problems which Iand my student assistants must treatjust as confidentially. So I wanted tomake it clear to the people we haveseen today that I was only showingyou around the hospital."After it was agreed that he certainly had shown someone around, hewas asked could he typify some of theproblems discussed."Name some," he replied. "Any."From Alcoholism to Zeitgeist?"All of them, all the way down theline."Back in his office, the Chaplain enlarged on the theme. "All kinds ofdifferent people, from all over theworld, come here. Many of them findthemselves in the jam of wantingto yell 'This can't happen to me!'But it is. Then, even those whowill become well and leave want toknow why it is happening to them.This very often leads to wonderingabout what has happened to them inthe past, which, in turn, sometimesleads to an examination of their religious life — or the absence of it. Whatthey do not want at this point is acheerful missionary. They are of different faiths. The job of a Chaplainis to listen to all of them during thisperiod, and — if they want it— guidetheir ideas so that they can find outhow they feel about things."To do this a Chaplain has to begrounded in theology, know a lot ofpsychology, a little medicine, and asmuch of. himself as he can. All fourstudies," he said with a grin, "go onforever. Particularly the last one."As the interview ended a youngwoman appeared for an appointment.Her husband was a patient and shewanted to talk to Granger E. Westberg about certain things. Before sheclosed the door the beginning of theconversation could be heard. "Heseems much better — today," she said."Isn't that fine," replied the Chaplain. "And how are you?" —H.E.D.12 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEUniversity NewsSpring FervorMITCHELL TOWER, BEYOND THE FOUNTAIN, AS SEEN FROM A PRONE POSITIONWORKINPROGRESSi\WET SPRING brought out a burstof blossoms on the campus and twounexpected feathered guests. B-Jresidents were treated to the sight ofa Papa and Mama mallard duck paddling down a rain-soaked Midway.By the time the dandelions hadtaken over the Midway, other interesting things were happening onthe campus. The Renaissance Society's May exhibit, entitled "TheArtist Looks at the Scientist's World,"included a collection of models (inert)— mostly from the physical sciences —whose aesthetic appeal rivaled theirscientific interest. Cyril S. Smith, Director of the Institute of Metals, waschairman of the committee of scientists and artists who arranged theexhibit to show the beauty and essential orderliness of the scientist's world,a theme akin to Paul Weiss's article(see page 7).While non-scientists were peeringinto crystalline structures and stresspatterns in the Goodspeed Hall exhibit, many University scientists wereattending medical society meetings inthe East where they told other scientists about their latest researches.Astronomer Aden Meinel told theNational Academy of Sciences aboutthe studies he and his associates aremaking of the Northern Lights. Hedescribed techniques by which various atoms found in the NorthernLights can be identified, and re-JUNE, 1954 13marked that such information aboutthe upper air would be valuable inthis age of guided missile and rocketflight.Also reporting to the Academywere Dr. Paul Cannon (Pathology)and Dr. Paul Weiss (Zoology). Dr.Cannon discussed studies of how thebody uses intravenous injection ofproteins. His findings show that thebody can make use of peptides(groups of amino acids) when theyare injected beneath the skin. Mr.Weiss showed that the growth pattern of cells in chicken skin wascompletely altered through brief exposure to Vitamin A. This studycontributes to the understanding ofthe unorganized "wild" cell growthcharacteristic of cancer.At the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology twoUniversity biochemists told how viruses that attack bacteria are ableto break down the cell walls. LloydKozloff (Assistant Professor, Biochemistry) and his co-worker, Leonard Barrington, reported on theirstudies which are important in establishing clues to the way viruses areable to infect the cells of their hosts.Earl Evans, Jr. (Chairman, Department of Biochemistry) and his research associates summarized theirinvestigations of viruses that attackbacteria but sometimes remain dormant inside the host for many generations. Their studies show that someviruses obtain only a third of onevital chemical in their body from theliving things they attack, and theother two -thirds from the mediumoutside the attacked cells. Sinceviruses are responsible for many human diseases, including polio, influenza and the common cold, one of theproblems of modern medical researchis to find out how viruses reproduce,so that means can be found to combatthem.The usefulness of "tagged" colchicine, a drug derived from plantsgrown at the University's "atomicfarm" in showing chemical differencesbetween cancer patients and normalindividuals was described by EdwardWalaszek, (Pharmacology) in reporting on experiments conducted byhimself, Dr. George LeRoy (Medicine) and Dr. E. M. K. Geiling,(Chairman, Department of Pharmacology).Busy businessThe School of Business has concluded a busy spring schedule. TheSecond Annual Management Conference (see page 4) was followed aweek later by the third annual Busi ness Economists Conference. Itbrought together over sixty economists from Middle West corporationsto discuss the business outlook withgovernment representatives and faculty members. The director of theConference was John Howard, Assistant Professor of Business Administration.All during the year, on Saturdaymornings, the Business School hasconducted a special program fortwenty-five supervising engineersfrom the Communication and Electronics Division of Motorola, Inc. Directed by William Hayt of th£ Schoolof Business, the program's purposewas to acquaint engineering specialists with the fundamentals of management.In fact, the management section ofthe Industrial Relations Center, oneof the leading University- sponsoredprograms of its kind in America, hasnow been incorporated into theSchool of Business.Names make newsNew appointments in recent weeksinvolve Francis S. Chase, new Chairman of the Department of Education;Morris Kharasch, named the firstGustavus F. and Ann Swift Distinguished Service Professor of Chemistry; and Roger Shugg, appointedexecutive editor of the UniversityPress.Mr. Chase, Professor of Educational Administration and Director ofthe Midwest Administration Center,succeeds Maurice Seay, who will become Director of the Education Division of the Kellogg Foundation.The new chairman has been a member of the faculty since 1945. Beforethat he served on the wartime commission for the Office of Educationand as executive secretary of the Virginia Education Association.A noted chemist, Mr. Kharasch wasawarded the distinguished serviceprofessorship established under thewill of the late Charles H. Swift asa tribute to his father, the earlyChicago packer who helped found theUniversity. Kharasch was elected in1946 to the National Academy of Sciences, the highest honor in the scientific field for his participation in asuccession of discoveries in both theoretical and practical chemistry. ,Mr. Shugg, formerly Director ofRutgers University Press, will serveunder Morton Grodzins, who continues as editor of the Press in additionto his new duties as Dean of theDivision of the Social Sciences. Aneditor and manager of the collegedepartment of Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., from 1945 to 1953, Shugg will havegeneral supervision of the editorialand financial operations of the Press.Thus spake . . .Jurisprudence and politics was thetopic of the fifteenth Law School Conference, held April 30 on campus.Professor Richard McKeon, Philosophy, opened the sessions with an address on "Philosophic Presuppositionsand the Relations of Legal Systems."Other speech-making faculty members included Frank H. Knight, Distinguished Service Professor, and Edward Shils, Professor, Committee onSocial Thought, who spoke on "Beyond the Law: The Formation of Social Policy."The conference also featured a public lecture by Hans Kelsen, Professorof International Law at the NavalWar College, who was on campus togive six Walgreen Foundation lectures on "The Foundations ofDemocracy."Other headline speakers on thequadrangles in recent weeks wereWilliam Howard Taft III and novelistJohn Dos Passos.Mr. Taft, Ambassador to Ireland,spoke on "American Policy towardSmall Nations," under the auspices ofthe Center for the Study of AmericanForeign Policy.Mr. Dos Passos, speaking on "TheClassics Are Nearer than You Think,"presented the 190th William VaughnMoody lecture.Library acquisitionsThe University Library has purchased about 1,500 contemporaryFrench pamphlets of the period of theFrench revolution. The papers dealwith all aspects of the history andpolitics of the Revolution and theNapoleonic era, 1789-1815, and considerably strengthen the Library's excellent resources for research in thisperiod.A new addition to the collectionsof the Rare Book Room is the Monu-menta Cartografica Africae et Aegyptiof His Highness Prince YoussoufKamal of Egypt. A gift of the author,the publication of the set began in1926. The two most recent volumes,published in 1951, have just been received and contain, in facsimile, 164maps of Africa arranged chronologically to illustrate the evolution ofcartography. The earliest is from aclay tablet bearing a Babyloniancadastral survey map (2,000 B.C.).The Library also announces a bequest of $1,000 from the estate of thelate Emil M. Martinson, DB '98.— A.P.14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEPICTURE OF A NINE-SIDED IDEA— EVANS AND RUTH JONES (RIGHT, CENTER) HEAR A MAN OUT IN EVENING CLASSThe Basic ProgramWhat is it? Who takes it? Why?A NEW TREND has been evidentin recent years in the alphabeticalroster of University activities; themulti-letter designations have beengetting longer. This development isa curious one, because in many casesas the growing hedges of initials getmore forbidding, the intellectual gardens behind them grow more important and stimulating. An excellentexample of this paradox is theBPLEA, which can be found in theUniversity's downtown center, administered by University College.It used to be that B&G (Buildingsand Grounds) PACH (Public Administration Clearing House) and a fewothers were considered the fair standards of University alphabets to whichthe wise and righteous might turn for repairs. Some of the newer campus bodies have enlarged the alphabetical spectrum without increasingthe number of letters: FTF (Federated Theological Faculty), PEP (Parent Education Project), CEAC (Committee on Education for AmericanCitizenship), etc. But then cameCSLEA (Center for the Study ofLiberal Education for Adults) and, in1946, BPLEA: the Basic Program ofLiberal Education for Adults. TheBasic Program actually does not carefor its bulky name and wishes it hada shorter, snappier one. So far, however, no one has come forward witha wieldy one which is capable oftelling the story.The Basic Program is basic becauseit is concerned with basic principles making possible sound judgments. Onthis fundamental basis, it can serveas an initial college-level curriculumfor persons who have never attendedcollege, as well as for others whobecame highly specialized in collegework and simply want a broader perspective of learning.It is a program because it consistsof four years of highly integratedwork leading through the improvement of the arts of reading, speaking,writing, and thinking, toward genuineunderstanding.It is liberal education because itsreading, embracing 41 great authors,range from Homer to Joyce (Iliadand Portrait, oddly, not Odyssey andUlysses), from Aeschylus to Racine,from Aristotle to Marx, from theJUNE, 1954 15Holy Bible to Dr. Sigmund Freud.And it is specifically and exclusivelyfor adults. Persons 21 and under areexcluded by the by-laws.In a period of dwindling enrollments, the Basic Program has grownsteadily. In the first eight years ofits existence, 655 persons have enrolled. The rate of attrition, amongstudents who are simultaneously citizens of a mobile society, is relativelyhigh. In the four classes which havebeen graduated thus far, an averageof only slightly more than 17 per centof the entering group has completedthe four years of study. But the sizeof the entering groups — and thereforethe meaningfulness of the 17 per cent— has progressed from 62 in 1946 to176 last autumn. And last fall's entering group itself was 34 per centlarger than that of the previous year.It represented a major share of theenrollment increase in UniversityCollege.The Basic Program is offered on atwice-a-week and a once-a-weekbasis, either evenings or in the daytime, to fit the time problems of itsworking students. (The attrition rateis noticeably higher in the once-a-week groups; the twice-a-week students show a 10 per cent greater completion rate — nearly 28 per cent finishing, compared with the 17 percent over all.)The six hours a week of discussion-group education provides regularCollege-level academic credit, andpersons completing the program maygo on to work for the University'sA.B. In actual practice, however, fewhave done so."Equipped with the maturity whichcomes from being part of life itself,"University College's Dean MauriceF. X. Donohue pointed out, "most ofthe students in the Basic Programhave told us that those abilities whichthey' have learned, those skills theyhave sharpened up, are sufficient untothemselves, whether or not they leadto an academic degree."Administrator of the Basic Programis Galway Kinnell, a hulking, soft-spoken young poet-educator, who hasbeen on leave this spring pursuingresearch in the field of general education, under a Ford Foundationgrant. Meanwhile one of the program's staff of able, and mostly youthful, instructors, Leonard K. Olsen, '36,stepped in as director.Basic Program students tend to become wildly enthusiastic when theyare asked, what they think of theprogram. One young lady, the possessor of a master's degree in socialSTUDENT AT NIGHT, EVANS JONES HOLDS DOWN JOB OF OFFICE MANAGER BY DAY JONES AND HIS WIFE, RUTH, CHECK THE TEXT.science (not from Chicago), said thatnot only had the course introducedher to thinking in fields other thanher own ("I had never even knownhow to pronounce Coriolanus"), buthad given her a deeper understandingof social thinkers whom she hadostensibly studied before. "I reallydiscovered Hobbes and what hemeans," she said. "But even morethan that, the program helps youanalyze things better."What manner of people undertakethe studies of the Basic Program?Let's get acquainted briefly with oneChicago couple, Evans and RuthJones, who signed up for the programon a blustery, below-zero evening lastJanuary and plan to see it throughthe full four years. They had beenthinking about taking up fencing toget rid of TV-lethargy, but theywound up reading Shakespeare andAristotle instead.Evans Jones is a personable Chi-cagoan of 34. He has always read alot, perhaps as a result of the influence of his bibliographer-grandfather,Charles Evans, who, operating fromthe Boston Athenaeum, establishedlibraries in several cities and undertook as his life-work the compilationof the definitive American bibliography. (Unfortunately death inter-16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEWEEK THEY HAVE CLASSES AT 19 S. LA SALLErupted his work when he had gotU. S. publishing as far along as 1799.)On the other hand, blood doesn'tnecessarily tell; Jones' uncle is ChickEvans, a nationally famous golf professional, but Jones plays no golfwhatever.Jones finished his high school studies at Sullivan, in Chicago, in 1937,and went to work. He was a copy boyon the hearstwhile Chicago Heraldand Examiner, but his newspapercareer ended when that paper encountered a disastrous and ultimatelyfatal strike. After holding a series ofother odd jobs, he went back to schoolto learn typing (at Bryant and Strat-ton) and in 1941 went to work for thenear-northwest-side firm where he isstill employed, the Perfection Tooland Metal Heat Treating Company.Heat treating is a 24-hour operation,and Jones squeezed in as a night clerkin the office. Two years later he hadbecome night assistant to the officemanager. At that point, however, heentered the navy and soon rose tothe estate of yeoman, second class.He not only never left the country,he never left the shore; on a vacationtrip to Boston last summer he boardedfor the first time, eight years afterleaving the navy, a commissionednavy ship — the U.S.S. Constitution —JUNE, 1954 where she lies on exhibition in theBoston navy yard.The war over, Jones came back toPerfection, and within a year he wasthe firm's office manager, a positionwhich, after eight years, he still occupies.In 1948 the Joneses met and weremarried. Ruth had been born in Chicago but had migrated at an earlyage to Colorado. She had completedtwo years of high school at Pueblowhen she quit being a student to become, at 15, an instructor in the now-non-existent Schwinger School ofMusic.After Ruth had accumulated nineyears of teaching piano in this institution, the proprietor of the schooldied; Ruth came back to Chicago, with$25 in her purse and a lot of musicalability in her fingers. Beyond a singleKimball Hall recital and playing athome, however, she did no more withmusic, which is widely recognized asa poverty-breeding artistic field. Afterworking as a bookkeeper for a jewelerand putting in a short stint at Encyclopaedia Britannica, she went towork as a quality control inspector atWestern Electric, meanwhile takingevening courses to complete highschool.After her marriage, Ruth quit work,but soon became bored with housekeeping. Even part-time volunteerwork as a driver for the Red Crossfailed to satisfy her urge to be doingsomething, and in 1951 she was backat work, expediting inventory control, this time at the big hardwarefirm of Hibbard Spencer Bartlett.The Joneses were skeptical whenthey first heard about the Basic,through a form letter in the mail.They knew they wanted to be doingsomething, but fencing seemed at thetime somewhat more attractive, sinceit provides more exercise than doesstudy. A second letter, however, foundthe Joneses, and they came to theUniversity's downtown center, at 19South La Salle Street, braving subzero weather to find out a little moreabout the program.No greybeards"We expected that a Universitycourse would be run by a lot ofgreybeards," Jones said later. "Butwhen we met Galway Kinnell, helooked a lot more like an out-of-workfootball player, so we took heart andregistered."The Joneses like discussions as amethod of learning, and they aresteadily becoming more active participants in the lively class analyses."One thing it has done for me," Mrs. Jones declared firmly, "is tocounter some strong emotional tendencies I have always had when Iwas engaged in controversies. I cannow enter a discussion of somethingI feel strongly about — politics or religion — without feeling my temperature rise or wanting to hit somebody."Evans likes the informal friendliness of the Basic Program. Despitehis avidity as reader, he has alwayshad difficulty learning from an instructor (though she is an experienced teacher, Ruth has never beenable to teach him to play the piano).In the mature atmosphere of inter-pares discussion, however, he is finding learning a different and more enjoyable process.As time goes on and the Basic Program becomes a well-established partof the University's adult activities,the pioneering eagerness may wearoff, but even now it seems reasonablyclear that in the program the University has developed one way of providing for the people of Chicago anexample of "the education that everycitizen ought to have," in a sufficientlypalatable form so that significantnumbers of citizens are setting aboutacquiring it. — Don MorrisRUTH (RIGHT) ENDS A WORKING DAY171897Marilla Freeman writes from NewYork City that she is still doing tripleduty as librarian of St. Joseph's HospitalLibrary (two days a week); as chairmanof the Motion Picture Preview Committee, Audio-Visual Board of the AmericanLibrary Association; and as editor of"New Films from Books" department,Library Journal.1901Fred L.

One of these, a chemical weed killer, has already proved effective in protecting more than 50 kindsof plants, shrubs, and food crops.HOW DOES IT WORK? The secret of this remarkableherbicide is that, when sprayed on the soil, it attacksweeds right at the surface. That's where most weed seedssprout. The deeper-rooted crops are left unharmed.OTHER WEAPONS, TOO— Weed killers are but one of the chemical tools the people of Union Carbide produce for our farmers and gardeners. Their insecticides,fumigants, and fungicides protect growing and storedcrops from insects and fungi. These give the groweradded freedom from backaches and the nightmares ofcrop failure.STUDENTS AND STUDENT ADVISERS: Learn more about careeropportunities with Union Carbide in Alloys, Carbons, Chemicals,Gases, and Plastics.
