This little magazine hasintroduced a distinguished list of poems,ranging from the first Cantos of EzraPound, to Eliot's "Prufrock" and "Trees"by Joyce Kilmer. The documents fromthe files of this magazine, the correspondence with the poets, and the review copies of the books from its libraryform the backbone of the collection inthe University's Modern Poetry Library.It was fascinating to spend some timeat the desk of the curator of the library,Mrs. Bond. A graduate student stoppedto comment on how exciting and revealing the poets' handwriting is in theletters. An editor of the Chicago Review asked Mrs. Bond which she findsmost effective among the current littlemagazines.She comments on the current poets:they are noisy, new, young, voluble.Their poetry is for young people . . .not the poetry read in high school, suchas "Ode to the West Wind." They arechallenging; they demand that youngreaders use their own taste; and theyencourage the reader to write for himself. "It's like looking at a Michael-angelo . . . rather intimidating. But ifyou see a sketch or a pose done by aperson today, it makes your fingers itchto pick up a pencil."JAMES TWOMEY, a research associate with the Industrial RelationsCenter, has compiled a history of theSchool of Business in commemorationof its sixtieth anniversary.

S. Eliot,Sherwood Anderson, Marianne Moore, CarlSandburg and Wallace Stevens, and about theeditor of that magazine:AS 1 IMAGINE MtSS HARRIET MONROE E D I rwq"POfcTKY"(here characterized by poet Wm. Rose Benet) l jrpHE FIDDLES ARE TUNING UP all over Amer-J- ica," wrote William Butler Yeats in 1914. He wascommenting on the astonishing poetic revival in America.He was perhaps unconsciously testifying to the fervor andinfluence of a determined little woman at that momentsitting in her office at 543 Cass Street— now North WabashAvenue— Chicago, methodically, but with lively anticipation, opening her mail. Her name was Harriet Monroe,and the journal which she had founded in 1912 wasPoetry: A Magazine of Verse.Excitement was in the air even before the first issueappeared. From Ezra Pound, a young American poetliving in London, had come a ringing letter in responseto Miss Monroe's announcement of the proposed magazine:* "I AM interested, and your scheme as far as I understand it seems not only sound, but the only possiblemethod . . . But? Can you teach the American poet thatpoetry IS an ART? . . ." This letter, dated August 18,1912, was the first of a long, brilliant and hectoringseries of which Miss Monroe was later to say: "Ezra'spungent and provocative letters were falling thick assnowflakes." And she was overjoyed to have him declare:"If I can be of any use in keeping you or the magazinein touch with whatever is most dynamic in artistic thought,either here or in Paris— as much of it as comes to me—and I DO see nearly everyone that matters— I shall beglad to do so." The very form and handwriting of thisletter radiate confidence and masterful enthusiasm.The first issue of Poetry, October, 1912, designed andprinted in red and black by Ralph Fletcher Seymour, contained thirty-two pages; and of the seven poems twowere by Pound, one the controversial "To Whistler, American" which described the public as a "mass of dolts"and justifiably annoyed many of Poetry s readers. Thefront cover carried a small design of Pegasus — the sireof many other Pegasus designs on later issues— and theprice for twelve issues was one dollar and fifty cents.On an advertisement page at the back was the quotationfrom Whitman, used subsequently in every issue: "Tohave great poets there must be great audiences, too."Yeats himself lent the splendor of his name to the thirdissue, and Poetry's audience was electrified by a poem inthe fourth number that carried the booming voice of anAmerican evangelical revivalist: "General William BoothEnters into Heaven." The poet, Nicholas Vachel Lindsay,then 33 years old, had been tramping across the continentpreaching a "gospel of beauty" and selling a pamphletcalled Rhymes to be Traded for Bread for a supper or anight's lodging. His poems celebrated folk heroes likeJohn Brown, John L. Sullivan and P. T. Barnum, and hewas one of the first to use work songs, railroad ballads,ragtime and later, jazz syncopation.One of the most widely quoted poems that Poetry everprinted was "Trees" by the soldier-poet Joyce Kilmer,who gratefully wrote in 1913: "Six dollars will satisfy mefor 'Trees'." Yet that poem, as Miss Monroe wryly recalls in her autobiography: "coined money for publishers,composers, singers, radio people, for everybody but theauthor — who was killed soon after — and the magazinewhich first presented it."*Thus the very first issues of Poetry illustrate its policymaintained from the beginning— that of the Open Door.Harriet Monroe could recognize the value of Lindsay'sfolk material; she was delighted to submit to the directionof the inspiring and arbitrary Pound— although not always with the perfect docility he expected, and she managed to steer the magazine without being pulled off the4road by either of these— or by any other influence.In fact it is almost incredible that although already inher fifties when she launched the magazine, Harriet Monroe was so little bound by the conservative and "genteel"tradition in which she had been trained. Indefatigable,courageous, this small, gray-haired woman had determined to give poets the encouragement of publicationand to see that they were paid for it.With "better luck than most poets"* Harriet Monroehad her poems printed in the leading national magazines;and "The Hotel" and "The Turbine" show her as apioneer in the use of common speech and modern themes.But even with funds from occasional articles her earningswere scanty— in 1900 she earned a total of $573. Shewas kindled to a fine indignation by the spectacle ofChicago's bourgeoning cultural life, in which poets hadno part, with groups of powerful and wealthy men contributing funds to the Art Institute, the Orchestra andthe new University of Chicago on the far south side.With dogged energy over many months— literally knocking on doors and encountering problems and difficultiesthat any fund-raiser today could sympathize with— shesucceeded in reaching her goal: one hundred guarantors,each pledged to give fifty dollars annually for the nextfive years. This subscription fund was to pay the costs ofpublication; the poets were to be paid from the sales ofthe magazine. At first no salary was contemplated forthe editor — she was supporting herself by writing artarticles for the Tribune — and only in 1914, when thatsource ended, was she obliged to take fifty dollars amonth in salary from Poetry.Having secured her guarantors, she went after thepoets, devoting the summer months of 1912 to compilinga list of American and British poets whose work she admired, to whom she sent letters and a printed circular,soliciting their "best verse" for the new magazine.Like Ezra Pound, the poets responded. Acceptance byPoetry meant to many their first recognition and themoney she paid was vitally important to them. Acknowledging her check for eight of his poems printed in theJanuary 1914 issue of Poetry, D. H. Lawrence wrote toMiss Monroe: "When I got your checque, I gasped. Seeing it was in payment of mere verse: I felt my fortunewas made in a stroke."Although it never achieved the wide audience it hopedfor and never has become self-supporting, Poetry becamefirmly established through the years as a leader. As William Carlos Williams said: "We knew it was there."A distinguished list of poets whose work first appearedin Poetry include H. D., Richard Aldington, SherwoodAnderson, Maxwell Bodenheim, James Branch Cabell,T. S. Eliot, Vachel Lindsay, Marianne Moore, Carl Sandburg, Wallace Stevens, and Rabindranath Tagore. Theirletters and manuscripts form a great wealth of materialfrom which the history of Poetry will be written.Library of Modern PoetryIn 1931 after nineteen years of uninterrupted publication, Harriet Monroe assessed the value of the uniquelibrary she had acquired, and began to make plans whichultimately resulted in her decision to bequeath the collection to the University of Chicago. Her feelings aboutthe legacy can best be stated in her own words: (Poetry,October 1931)"Of late the founder-editor-owner of Poetry has feltthat, as the magazine has been so loyally supported allthese years by Chicago guarantors . . . some return shouldbe made to the city for its disinterested investment. The*-A Poet's Life only return of permanent value being Poetry s library,she has contracted that the University of Chicago shallinherit it ... In return, the University agrees to give ourcollection its own title and place and proper care in theUniversity Library. Also an anonymous friend of the University has provided a fund of five thousand dollars, theinterest of which— to be later devoted, in perpetuity, tothe purchase of new books of verse, so that this libraryof modern poetry' may continue to deserve its title."Miss Monroe died in Arequipa, Peru, suddenly, on September 26th, 1936, while on her return from Buenos Aireswhere she had gone to represent American Poets at anInternational Convention of Writers and to speak for thecause of poets and poetry everywhere. It was the end ofan era, begun in 1912. Whether or not Harriet Monroewas directly responsible for the tremendous movementwhich transformed the writing of verse in this country,it is agreed that her magazine found "the exactly rightpsychological moment for its appearance on the scene"and played an historic part, that no literary historian orcritic writing of the time has been able to ignore.The Harriet Monroe Modern Poetry Library was openedto the public at the University of Chicago at the beginning of the Autumn Quarter in 1938. The dinner of formal dedication was a brilliant occasion. George Dillon,at that time editor of Poetry, presented the collection.Letters and messages were read from many poets, hereand abroad, including Walter de la Mare, Wilfrid WilsonGibson, Ezra Pound, Edgar Lee Masters, John GouldFletcher, Witter Bynner, and John Masefield.A letter from the poet Lew Sarett (April 28, 1938) tothe director of the library at the time of the dedicationwas read, that said in part:"Harriet Monroe spoke to me many times of her ardenthope that her library and scores of precious MSS be preserved in some strong institution. She saw the literarygold in her possession. Today her books and MSS are ofextraordinary value and interest. A century from nowthey will be doubled in value and interest. It is characteristic of the University of Chicago that it should seethe significance of this material, gain possession of it, andfind a place for it. It is one more evidence of the insightthat marks the institution and of the high level of itsscholarship and culture."The library, as then dedicated, contained about twothousand three hundred and fifty books, volumes of verse,criticism, and anthologies. George Dillon said: "Nearlyall are first editions, and some are inscribed by theauthors. These books are for the most part those whichwere considered worth reviewing in Poetry and worthkeeping on the shelves in the office."Giving examples of some of the rare and valuable itemsMr. Dillon cited the first edition of General William BoothEnters into Heaven and other Poems by Vachel Lindsay,inscribed as follows: "To my good and loyal friend Harriet Monroe— with particular thanks for the goodness ofMarch 1, 1914, the friendship of many of the godly, including W. B. Yeats, and the general elaborate goodnessof her heart." And the inscribed first editions of Smokeand Steel by Carl Sandburg, of Birds, Beasts and Flowers,by D. H. Lawrence, and of Renascence, by Edna St.Vincent Millay— a scarce copy printed on special watermarked paper.But probably of greatest interest to research studentsand literary historians and value to the University werethe files of more than thirty thousand poets' letters andmanuscripts accumulated by Miss Monroe during hertwenty-four years as editor of Poetry, Herself an indefatigable letter-writer, Miss Monroe stimulated her correspondents to write freely and brilliantly.5It is interesting to think of many poems— now acceptedas modern classics— arriving in the daily mail for MissMonroe's scrutiny. Such a poem accepted by Poetry in1915, strongly recommended by Ezra Pound, was "TheLove Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T. S. Eliot, also anunknown young expatriate. The typescript of it as it wassubmitted to the editor and marked for the printer is inthe collection— T. S. Eliot's first published poem. History-making was Pound's "Three Cantos"— the first of the longepic about which Monroe wrote in the August 1917 issue:"Canto III does not finish the poem, which will be muchlonger—." Now, forty-one years later it approaches conclusion with the ninety-seventh Canto!James Joyce is represented by typescripts and holographs of poems which appeared in early issues of Poetry,at a period when his work was still being subjected to"rejection by publishers, objections by printers, suppression by censors, confiscation by customs officials."Some of the most gifted woman poets of the twentiethcentury are represented in the MSS files with sheafs ofletters written to an editor who was their trusted andintimate friend. Sara Teasdale wrote to her about bothher lyrics and her loves. Edna St. Vincent Millay attemptsto charm early payment for her poems because "I amawful broke,"— or extolls the poems she is sending as her"especial pets and darlings." One of these printed inPoetry became an especial pet and darling of the American public: "My candle burns at both ends; It will notlast the night:"Pegasus Wears a BridleWilliam Carlos Williams, now one of our most eminentAmerican poets, was at the beginning of his dual career,learning the craft of writing as he studied medicine. Hiscorrespondence with Harriet Monroe began in 1913 andended only with her death in 1936. It provides livelyillustrations of the editor-poet relationship which the poethimself describes as being with "occasional outbursts ofindignation."One series of letters describes the development of oneof Williams' several poems called "Love Song." An earlyversion was sent to Harriet Monroe by Ezra Pound, whichshe liked and accepted. Shortly she received a new version of the poem from Williams with a scribbled marginalnote: "Since Ezra has sent you the first draught of thisI am forced to send this revision." In this each line began with a small letter— a striking departure from theusual poetic form. Miss Monroe evidently consultedPound about the changes in the poem for she commentson the margin of it: "Pound thinks end might be strengthened." Back came a third shortened version from Williams, with the emphatic notation: "Final Version." MissMonroe didn't like it and to her protests Williams wrote,with surprising mildness:"Dear Miss Monroe: It would be a long story to tellyou how I came to change the version of the rotten "LoveSong" to what it was in my last. For the present sufficeit to say that whichever version you like best will satisfyme also."So Miss Monroe published her favorite — the secondversion, and calmly directed the printer to "begin alllines with caps." This daring called forth one of the"outbursts of indignation" from the poet: "I cannot understand the feeling that wants to change and rearrangeaccording to some yard-stick which has not the slightestapplication." Later he simmers down in writing to her:"In any case I thank you for your unfailing courtesy—I wish mine were as sure— and for the unexpectedly largecheck." And so the editor seemed to have the last word. But when William Carlos Williams included this "LoveSong" in a book of poems next year (Al Que Quiere!)—he used his own choice— the shortened, third version, withall but three lines beginning with letters in lower case!To Continue Miss Monroe's IdealsThe original gift being on such a high level of excellence, the University was justified in considering modernpoetry an area on which to concentrate and "to developgreat strength." When I came to the library as its firstcurator in October, 1938, it was the resolution of all ofus concerned with its management to live up to MissMonroe's ideals and aspirations for it, and to keep itliberal and friendly to new and experimental poetry,while also acquiring the work of the known writers. Fromits original number of two thousand, three hundred fifty,the collection has grown to seven thousand volumes.The library has for fifteen of its twenty years occupieda large-windowed room on the sixth floor of the westtower of Harper Library. The books are on open shelvesfor leisurely browsing and they circulate on a weeklybasis to University students. It is a small, comfortableroom, with deep leather chairs, and high gothic windowsgiving a broad view of the south side and the curve ofthe lake as far north as the down-town skyscrapers. Ithas become an informal center for the enjoyment ofpoetry, as well as for its serious study.At first the income of this departmental library wassmall, permitting little beyond the purchase of regulartrade editions of new books of verse as they came out.But over the years the successive directors of the University Library have found ways to augment the originalendowment. This has been made possible by the generosity of alumni and other donors who have createdspecial funds, such as the memorial fund given by friendsof Edith Foster Flint for the purchase of scarce editionsof poetry.Many rare items have been added to Miss Monroe'soriginal treasures: first editions of Masefield's Salt-WaterBallads (1902), The Soul's Destroyer by W. H. Davies(1905), Housman's A Shropshire Lad (1896), ThreeStories and Ten Poems by Ernest Hemingway (1923)and other publications of the Three Mountains or Contact Press; Ezra Pound's rare first work A Lume Spent o(1908), Poems by Gerard Manley Hopkins, (1918), andmany others. Some represent gifts from alumni like themint autographed copy of AE'S The Divine Vision (London, 1904) received as a gift from the Lessing Rosenthal estate.Developing the Harriet Monroe collection in all itsbranches has meant building also upon the original fivehundred "little magazines" by subscribing annually toover seventy current poetry magazines, or literary magazines which devote a large section to poetry and criticism. Popular are Encounter, and the Partisan and Parisand Evergreen Reviews, and the University's own TheChicago Review.A collection of recordings of poetry was started in thefirst year of the library, even before there was a machineto play them on. It was evident that poets were writingmore and more for the ear and not for the eye only. Thelibrary's first purchase was Vachel Lindsay's own greatreading of his poem "The Congo."Recent releases of Wallace Stevens, William CarlosWilliams and Robert Graves reading their own poemsand the recording of Kenneth Patchen reading his poemsillustrated by the musician accompaniment of a jazz orchestra, bring the number of long-play albums to onehundred and fifty-eight, and the total to five hundred6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEand twenty-five records. Anthologies of earlier poetryrecorded by professional readers, some poetic dramas andcollections of ballads provide a background to the currentpoetry read by the poets themselves.Acting upon Ezra Pound's warning that modern poetrymust not "stay stuck at a given PAST date," the libraryhas presented readings and lectures by visiting poets.The first was a lecture by David Daiches on the poetryof W. H. Auden in 1939, when Auden still virtuallydominated the poetic scene. Karl Shapiro, a "discovery"of Harriet Monroe and from 1950 to 1955 editor ofPoetry, proved to be one of the most popular to appear.In the forty-or-more programs over the years have been:Kenneth Burke, Gwendolyn Brooks, Louise Bogan, AllenTate, and Langston Hughes.Additional Poetry MaterialsIn 1953 the library was enabled by an anonymousdonor to double its holdings of primary literary material,by the purchase from Poetry of all the magazine's accumulated editorial papers, poets' letters and manuscriptsfrom 1936, the date of Miss Monroe's death, to 1956.Morton Dauwen Zabel, George Dillon, Peter de Vries,Jessica Nelson North, Marion Strobel, Hayden Garruth,Karl Shapiro, and Henry Rago are the distinguished poet-editors who have succeeded Harriet Monroe. During hisbrief editorship at the critical time just after the founder'sdeath, Mr. Zabel, who is now a professor in the EnglishDepartment at the University, presented some outstanding issues including a British number in January 1937containing Auden's "Journey to Iceland," Dylan Thomas'"We Lying by Seasand" and poems by Stephen Spenderand George Barker; and a later issue featuring "The Manwith the Blue Guitar" by Wallace Stevens. Under GeorgeDillon's editorship, E. E. Cummings appeared in Poetryfor the first time. Dylan Thomas wrote to Mr. Dillonafter winning the Oscar Blumenthal prize for a group ofhis poems: "I cannot tell you how much that generousand so unexpected sum of money meant to me in verypoor circumstances." Robinson Jeffers opened the December 1940 issue with a group of poems including "TheBloody Sire"; Karl Shapiro appeared in the magazinefor the first time in October 1940 and William Saroyanin the May 1941 issue with "The Beautiful People," apoem with the same title as his well-known play. Uponacceptance of this poem Mr. Saroyan wrote to the editorthat this "will constitute the fulfillment (at last) of oneof my earliest hopes or intentions, inasmuch as one of thefavorite magazines of my school days was Poetry whichI used to read every month at the Fresno Public Library."So in the materials purchased from Poetry in 1953 nowjoined to the earlier Harriet Monroe gift, can be seen "theMrs. Bond, who is currently on leave of absence fromthe library for one year, has been curator of the ModernPoetry Library since its opening in 1938. She came tothe job with a love for modern poetry, having writtensome herself ("don't we all, when we're young?"), andhaving known Harriet Monroe. She received her bachelor's degree here.In England for the year, where her husband is completing some work he has been doing on the Addisonpapers, she predicted that she would spend her timeriding the red buses around Trafalgar Square and tracingthe Thames to its source. Mr. Bond is a professor in theEnglish Department at the University, as well as analumnus. procession of the Twentieth Century poets as it passedthrough the files of the magazine."The Audience for PoetryIt is not easy to write the absolute objectivity of theyoung men and women who have come to the libraryduring the past years. Hart Crane stirred them themost and then for a time lost his appeal. Now he is"coming back" once more. In the late 30's W. H. Audenwielded great influence; Gerard Manley Hopkins remainsa perennial favorite. A. E. Housman is popular forreading aloud or for memorizing— two pastimes at presentin vogue, and once more the great Victorians are read—Browning, Shelley, Keats— even by the same studentswho are addicted to the poets of the San Francisco "beatgeneration." T. S. Eliot continues, as he has for years,to win the most profound and respectful study, in spiteof "Myra Buttle," and his recordings of his own poetryare second in popularity only to those of Dylan Thomas.Today one often hears a group of students, sitting aroundthe record player with ear-phones on, laughing moreover "Under Milk Wood" than over the recordings ofthe inimitable Ogden Nash. During the war years Archibald MacLeish's Air Raid was a grim favorite. Now theblood-curdling, rising scream with which it ends is seldomheard.Nor is it easy to assess the value of this library in thelife of the University and this community. It has stimulated the reading and the writing of poetry by manystudents. They come to listen to recordings, to find material for their course studies and papers, to read widelyin poetry and criticism and develop their own crystaliz-ing style as poets, to read the new magazines and later tofind to their satisfaction, and ours, their own poems onour shelves. Many of the students have developed intogenuine poets and among the library's "regulars" can benumbered Ruth Herschberger, who has outstandingpoems in the current Boteghe Oscura, Paul Carroll,poetry-editor of The Chicago Review and George Star-buck, appearing in a current Atlantic. Visitors come fromother Universities and other countries where the libraryis known. Readers come for whom reading poetry is achore, and others with whom it is "superior amusement";readers who are respectful and serious, and others whoare brash and self-confident; and for some reason, manymore men than women come— the ratio being eight totwo.In America Yeat's fiddles are still playing and I believeThe Harriet Monroe Library is a continuing demonstration of T. S. Eliot's cautious statement: "the number ofpeople who can get some pleasure and benefit from somepoetry is, I believe, very large."NOVEMBER, 1958 7As Many Workmen as Students?The figure in the dusty corner in Kent isn't a student doing last-minute studying, as you'd expect.He's an electrician stringing new wiring for the remodeled labs and new lecture hall here.

He wasable to convince President Harper and the UniversitySenate of the need for a College to "train men directlyfor studying transportation, general business, banking,insurance, journalism, diplomacy and manufacturing."The new school was called the College of Commerceand Politics. When it was formed it had neither an independent budget nor a separate faculty. Courses offeredwere courses already existing in other departments orcolleges. Among the faculty members was Thorstein Veblen, who had written The Theory of the Leisure Class.One wag commenting on the relationship of Laughlin'steachings to Veblen's said, "They got the truth fromLaughlin and had it explained away by Veblen."It was not until 1913 that the School was given anindependent budget. In 1916, a gift of real estate valuedat over a million dollars was given the School, and this enabled Leon Caroll Marshall, who was then Dean, toinitiate some bold new plans.Vocational education was replaced by "functional"education. No longer were students taught specializedcourses for specific careers; they were taught the fundamentals necessary to all business managers. These coursesincluded study of the physical and social environmentof business.Dean Marshall gathered an outstanding faculty to teachthese subject fields. Among those who joined the facultyduring this period from 1916 to 1923 were Paul M.Atkins, who later became an adviser to the Secretary ofthe Army; John Maurice Clark, now Professor of Economics at Columbia University, who received an honoraryLLD from the University of Chicago in 1941; GarfieldCox, who became widely known for his work in the fieldof business fluctuations and forecasting and who servedas Dean of the School of Business from 1945 to 1952;Joel Dean, now Professor of Business Economics at Columbia and president of Joel Dean Associates; Paul Douglas, currently U. S. Senator from Illinois; Charles O.Hardy whose Risk and Risk-Bearing became famous;Leverett S. Lyon, who later became vice-president of theBrookings Institute and still later, chief executive officerof the Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry;James O. McKinsey, who founded the consultant firm ofMcKinsey and Company; James L. Palmer, currentlypresident of Marshall Field & Company; William H.Spencer, who became a prominent figure in labor mediation and who served as Dean of the School from 1925 to1945; and Theodore Yntema, now vice-president of financeof the Ford Motor Company.Others who joined the faculty during this period andwho are still associated with the University are AnnBrewington, Jay F. Christ, Edward A. Duddy, S. H.Nerlove, Lewis C. Sorrell, and Raleigh W. Stone.Marshall also stressed the importance of research useful for business and those who taught in the field ofbusiness. A series of publications developed from theresearch conducted by the School's faculty: "Materialsfor the Study of Business," "Studies in Business Administration," and the Journal of Business. The Journal ofBusiness continues to be published by the School ofBusiness.The Dean's organizing talents and research abilitiestook him into the fields of Law and Social Service Administration. Commenting on the universal Mr. Marshall'senergies, Charles M. Schwab, chairman of the board ofthe Bethlehem Steel Corporation, said he would haveNOVEMBER, 1958 13liked to have Marshall at the Bethlehem Corporation.Schwab commented, however, that if they were ever toproduce any steel it would have been necessary to keepMarshall locked up ninety percent of the time. Schwabfelt if Marshall were let out about once every six months,he would sufficiently exercise his organizational talentsto make the whole operation successful.A Graduate SchoolFollowing Marshall's term as dean was William H.Spencer. While Spencer was dean, The Institute of MeatPacking, which had been organized in the School in 1924,was strengthened.In 1932 the School first presented a course of instruction in institution economics and management. A Hospital Administration Program was added to the School in1934, and students with previous medical training wereeducated in business administration to prepare them forcareers in hospital administration. . .In 1945 Garfield Cox succeeded Spencer as dean, andhe continued to serve until 1952. During this time theSchool became an exclusively graduate school, awardingthe MBA and PhD degrees instead of the PhB degree.In 1943 the Executive Program was started with WillardJ. Graham as director. It offered experienced businessexecutives in the Chicago area a two-year evening program of graduate education in business management.The Downtown Program, a three-year graduate course inbusiness management, also was established during DeanCox's term.In 1952, while John E. Jeuck was dean, the management Conference was organized and became an event ofnational importance with speakers such as Theodore V.Houser, Peter F. Drucker, and Arthur F. Burns. TheBusiness Economists Conference, the Life Officers' Investment Seminar and the Financial Analysts' Seminarwere organized and representatives of these fields metwith representatives of the School to discuss the problemsin their areas. These annual meetings continue to playan important role in the program of the School of Business.In 1955 when Dean Jeuck left the University of Chicago to join the faculty at Harvard University, Royal S.Van de Woestyne became acting dean. The hunt for anew dean for the School ended in 1956 when W. AllenWallis, who had been at the School since 1946 as a professor of statistics and economics, was appointed byChancellor Kimpton. In addition, two professors, JamesDeans of the School of Business during the past fifty years:W. Allen Wallis, John E. Jeuck, William H. Spencer, Garfield V. Cox, and Leon C. Marshall.14 H. Lorie and Robert K. Burns, were named associatedeans.Under the new administration the faculty took a newlook at the business curriculum and the results of theseponderings have been a unique new program in education for business. Commenting on the programs at otherschools of business, Mr. Lorie has said, "At one schoolthat I know of, you can take any of thirty different courseson retailing. Some of them are so specialized that youare apt to get a very good idea of how a specialty shopin an eastern metropolitan area actually works. You mayeven be blessed with the opportunity to take field tripsto Bonwit Teller's. It is our feeling here that the timein school can better be spent learning other things, onthe assumption that once you get out of school you willhave unavoidable and prolonged contact with those particular procedures and practices that will be useful foryou."In the conviction that students must be given trainingthat won't be obsolete in ten or twenty years, the newprogram is being developed. Teaching will be concernedwith the underlying theories, doctrines, principles andtechniques in a field, without reliance on case historiesto demonstrate their application. Additional faculty hasbeen brought in from the fields of anthropology, sociology, psychology and mathematics, to supplement the traditional business subjects.Dean Wallis is uncertain what the contribution of thesefaculty members will be to the School of Business. Commenting on this he has said, "We brought them here tofind out what men in these fields can contribute to business. We did not set out to find a person in one of thesefields and say, 'Now there is such-and-such a job in thefield of business that you should do in such-and-such away,' but rather, 'You know your subject; we'll help expose you to business problems. Then you see if your ideasand methods don't have some bearing that we neverwould have thought of."Students in the School will select courses from a listwhich includes "The Social and Cultural Bases of Industry," "Digital Computers and Applications," "Theoriesand Analysis of Consumer Markets," and "EngineeringEconomics and Technological Change." Courses in transportation, insurance, retailing and others dealing primarily with the practice of business are not offered.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEThe School is now housed in Haskell Hall, originally built as the Oriental Institute. What the future School might looklike: (clockwise from the intersection of Both and Woodlawn in foreground) Administration joined with Industrial Relations, the Kellogg Center block, dormitory, a small computor building and classroom building.In 1957 the faculty of the School organized a ten-yearplan for the development of the School. The plan callsfor a fourfold growth in the on-campus student enrollment (from 250 to 1000 students), a doubling of theenrollment in the Downtown Program (from 650 to 1,300students) and, a projected faculty to number 139 members ... all this by 1966. In addition a new building isbeing planned so that the activities of the School mightbe moved from Haskell Hall.To make the ten-year plan possible the School neededadditional financial support. The Ford Foundation madea grant of $1,375,000 to the School. One million dollarswas allocated to endow two professorships in the School,one to be held by the director of research and the otherto be held on a rotating basis by outstanding persons.The grant also provided $250,000 to be used over aperiod of five years for doctoral fellowships and $125,000for support of faculty research.An additional expression of confidence came from prominent Chicago businessmen who agreed to serve on theSchool of Business Committee. The committee originallyheaded by John L. McCaffrey, former chairman of theboard, International Harvester Company, has Fairfax M.Cone, president, Foote Cone and Belding as its presentchairman. The list of Committee members is a "Who'sWho" of Chicago's commerce and includes Thomas C.Coulter, chief executive officer of the Chicago Associationof Commerce and Industry; Robert Galvin, president,Motorola, Inc.; Paul W. Goodrich, president, ChicagoTitle and Trust Company; Edward Gudeman, vice-president, Sears, Roebuck and Company; Robert C. Gunness,executive vice-president, Standard Oil Company (Indiana); Robert Gwinn, president, Sunbeam Corporation;Homer P. Hargrave, resident partner, Merrill Lynch,Pierce, Fenner and Smith; Robert S. Ingersoll, president,Borg-Warner Corporation; Roy C. Ingersoll, chairman,Borg- Warner Corporation; David M. Kennedy, president,Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company;Edwin A. Locke, Jr., president, Union Tank Car Company; Edward C. Logelin, vice-president, United StatesSteel Corporation; James L. Palmer, president, MarshallField and Company; Frank O. Prior, chairman, StandardOil Company (Indiana); Peter G. Peterson, executivevice-president, Bell and Howell Corporation; Herbert V.Prochnow, general vice-president, First National Bank of Chicago; Gerald A. Sivage, senior vice-president, MarshallField and Company; Joseph D. Stockton, vice-president,Illinois Bell Telephone Company; Allen P. Stults, vice-president, American National Bank and Trust Company;George H. Watkins, vice-president, Container Corporationof America; Fowler B. McConnell, chairman of Sears,Roebuck and Company; and Clarence B. Randall, retiredchairman of Inland Steel Company.The School has received financial support of its programs from firms in the Chicago area which have becomeAssociates of the School of Business by subscribing tothe Associates program and making membership contributions in units of $2,000 a year. The program developedby the School and the School of Business Committee, hasalready produced contributions totaling $80,000. FairfaxM. Cone, chairman of the School of Business Committee,has carried the burden of telling business about the program and encouraging firms to join. Mr. Cone expectsthat 100 firms will be Associates by the end of 1958 and200 by the end of 1959.Alumni Support of DevelopmentSupport for the ten-year plan for the development ofthe School has also come from the School's alumni. Thesefive thousand alumni located in all of the forty-nine statesand in thirty-five countries have been enthusiastic in theirsupport of the School. During the past year Kenneth S.Axelson, '44, past president of the School of BusinessAssociation, the alumni group of the School and DeanWallis met with alumni groups in Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Los Angeles, New Yorkand San Francisco. John H. Kornblith, '48, president ofthe Association during the coming year, plans to meetwith groups in Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas,Denver, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D. C.In addition to the activities in these various cities theAssociation formed an Alumni Council of distinguishedalumni to serve the Association as the liaison betweenthe alumni and the School of Business.A further indication of the School's strength is thenumber of new faculty members. Some of the new seniorfaculty include Bernard Berelson, former director of theBehavioral Sciences Program of the Ford Foundation;Yale Brozen, former professor of economics at Northwestern University; Sidney Davidson, former professor of ac-NOVEMBER, 1958 15counting at Johns Hopkins; John E. Jeuck, former Deanof the School of Business who has returned from HarvardUniversity where he was Professor of Business Administration; Howard Jones, former supervisor of statistics atthe Illinois Bell Telephone Company; Maurice Kilbridge,former Professor and Director of the Department of Industrial Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology; Alex Orden, former Manager of Applied Mathematicsin the Electrodata Division of the Burroughs Corporation;Joel Seidman, former Associate Professor of Social Sciencesin the College of the University and now Professor ofSocial Sciences; George Shultz, former Associate Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; George J.Stigler, formerly Professor of Economics at Columbia University; and Jacob I. Weissman, former Research Associate in Law and Economics in the Law School of theUniversity and now Associate Professor of Law in theSchool of Business.To insure that the education and research activities ofthe School are made available to the business community,Robert L. Reid will be Associate Dean for Special Programs. Mr. Reid will continue with the ExecutiveProgram and will direct all off-campus programs of theSchool including the Downtown Program, conferencesand seminars, and additional programs for business executives which the School will sponsor.During the past year the School sponsored or co-sponsored the Business Economists Conference, the ChicagoMortgage Bankers Seminar, the Conference on Automation, Operations Research and Business Planning, theConference on the Behavioral Sciences in Business Schools,the Financial Analysts Seminar, the Life Officers Investment Seminar, the International Conference on the Control of Restrictive Trade Business Practices, the Management Conference, and the Midwest Conference onIndustrial Relations. At the present time a seminar onCommunication and Organization is being planned. Thisseminar which is being financed by the McKinsey Foundation for Management Research, Inc., will be known as"The McKinsey Seminar."Tomorrow's BusinessmenThe proving ground of these labors is in the students,and their number and quality has increased greatly.Harold Metcalf, dean of students in the School, visitedover eighty liberal arts colleges last year to discuss theSchool's philosophy and current status. With currentregistration figures showing students from thirty-fivestates and fifteen countries enrolled, Dean Wallis says,"These figures indicate that Dean Metcalf somehow manages to get to all the places that he says he does."Thus with a faculty of applied mathematicians, economists, anthropologists, accountants, psychologists, lawyers,and scholars in the field of marketing, industrial relations,finance, production, statistics, government and business, the School goes into business for its second sixtyyears. Dean Wallis, convinced that the faculty of theSchool is an excellent combination of teachers and scholars for the purpose of educating graduating students ofbusiness, has written, "the plans of the School of Businessof the University of Chicago have been reviewed bysome of the country's most able business leaders and havereceived their endorsement and support. Many feel thatthis kind of school of business is needed, that this is thelogical place to develop it, and that, if a school built onthese lines can turn out men and ideas that will be productive in the 1960's and not be obsolete in the 1980's,the cost of the undertaking will be small in proportionto the results achieved."16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS OF THE QUADRANGLESFaculty RetirementsWith an average of thirty-five and ahalf years of service, seven facultymembers are retiring this fall, underthe University regulation, which makesretirement mandatory at the age ofsixty-five.

Extending the greeting was Carol Saposnik,a fourth year student in the College.A true Frenchman, Mayor Vigier reciprocated immediately. Then, flower inhis lapel, the Mayor inspected the University's Institutes for Basic Researchand the Argonne Cancer Research Hospital. DR. ELEANOR H. HUMPHREYS,professor of pathology. Dr. Humphreyscame to the University in 1923, attending Rush Medical College while serving as laboratory assistant in pathologyin the then new Albert Merritt BillingsHospital. She recalls wheeling her ownmicroscopes and test tubes up a rampbefore the back doors were put inplace. Receiving her MD degree in1931, she continued on the faculty and,during World War II, participated inthe Department of Pathology experiments on the relationship of nutritionto immunity and devised a method toevaluate the quality of protein in processed foods.J.

The Class of 1962These 485 freshmen entering thisfall make up the largest "in-residence"freshman class since World War II.Nearly eighty percent will live oncampus, with an additional 103 livingat home or with relatives.Some statistics on the entrants:• Nearly 90% are 17 or 18 years old.• The ratio of boys to girls is 2-1.• Nearly 40% are interested in physical sciences.© Another 40% start out expressinginterest in biology, social sciencesor humanities.• Forty percent had a "B" average inhigh school; 46% an "A" average;4% below "B."• Thirty-six percent received scholarships, including 97 from the Stateof Illinois and 11 National MeritScholarships.• They come from 37 states and fiveforeign countries.Total enrollment on the quadranglesincludes 2,500 undergraduates and3,800 graduate and other full-time students.Petterssen Receives AwardProfessor of Meteorology Sverre Petterssen is known as "the scientist whoput mathematics into weather forecasting." Last month, in receiving the NewYork Board of Trade's annual GoldAward, he joined the ranks of suchprevious winners as President Eisenhower, Herbert Hoover, Bernard Ba-ruch, Thomas E. Dewey, Sir WinstonChurchill, Lewis L. Strauss, John D.Rockefeller, III and President of YaleUniversity A. Whitney Griswold.Mr. Petterssen is director of the University of Chicago Weather ForecastingResearch Center and president of theAmerican Meteorological Society. Theleading authority in the art and scienceof weather prediction, he is author ofthe classical tests, Introduction to Meteorology, Weather Analysis and Forecasting, and Meteorological ResearchReviews. His "Petterssen computation"in 1933 revolutionized forecastingmethods by replacing subjective estimates of weather outlooks with mathematical computation. Currently he isstudying ways to improve the techniques for predicting the weather withelectronic computers.Mr. Petterssen devised upper airNOVEMBER, 1958 17Research Grantsforecasting schemes for the night bombing and other major Allied operationsin World War II, and after the Warheaded the Norwegian ForecastingService. In 1948 he received the coveted Buys Ballott Gold Medal of theNetherlands Academy of Science. Thisis given every tenth year and he is theonly living holder of the award. Amongother honors he has received are theU.S.A.F. Distinguished Civilian Service Award, which he received for establishing the Directorate of ScientificServices in the U.S.A.F. Air WeatherService.Hazel Kyrk MemorialMore tharj one hundred friends, relatives, farmer students and colleaguesof Hazel Kyrk have presented a gift of$1,200 to the University library to establish a Hazel Kyrk Memorial Fundfor the purchase of books in the fieldof consumption economics.For 27 years Miss Kyrk was on thefaculty at the University, retiring in1952 as professor of home economicsand economics. She had received herPhB and her PhD degree in economicsat the University. Miss Kyrk died inWashington, D. C, in August, 1957.A CorrectionIn the October Magazine announcement of the new members of the Boardof Trustees, Robert C. Gunness andArthur M. Wood, we incorrectly identified a photo as being of Mr. Gunness.With apologies to both Mr. Gunnessand to Roald F. Campbell, whosephoto it was, we print the correctionbelow. Mr. Campbell is a professorin the School of Education and directorof the Midwest Administration Center,which does research and publicationsin school administration. Mr. Gunnessis executive vice-president of StandardOil (Indiana).Mr. Gunness18 National Science FoundationTen grants, totalling $605,050 havebeen awarded to the University by theNational Science Foundation.Among the work supported by thesegrants are investigations of high energycosmic rays by Marcel Schein. Hisstudies with photographic emulsionsflown to the top of the atmosphere byballoons will be continued under a$450,000 grant. A grant of $10,000will be used by Beverly Duncan, research associate with the' University'sPopulation Research and Training Center, for a study .of the influence of industry on the structure of residentialareas in Metropolitan Chicago duringthe last census year, 1950.Zvi Griliches, assistant professor ofeconomics, will use a $16,800 grant fora study of the reasons different regionsof the United States adapt technological changes in agriculture more readilythan others. This follows earlier workby Theodore Schultz, professor andchairman of economics, toward a better definition of capital— one which includes agricultural as well as industrialpotential. Laboratory synthesis of simple organic molecules that in someways act like complex enzymes will beattempted under a $25,500 grant toKenneth D. Kopple, assistant professorof chemistry. His immediate interestis in hydrolytic enzymes, those thatbreak up other molecules by catalyzingtheir reactions with water.A $44,200 grant will be used byHenry Taube, professor and chairmanof chemistry, to investigate the rearrangement of silicate molecules inwater and the reactions of rheniumcompounds, using as a tracer the nonradioactive oxygen-18 isotope. Molecular complexes will be investigatedunder a $19,400 grant by Robert S.Mulliken, Ernest De Witt Burton Distinguished Service Professor of Physics,and Weldon G. Brown, professor ofchemistry. These complexes are looseassociations of atoms, such as occur insolutions. Mr. Mulliken and Mr. Brownseek to define the role of these complexes as intermediates in chemicalreactions, which always culminate inthe formation of tight associations ofatoms.A grant of $5,750 to supplement anearlier $51,800 grant was awarded toAlfred L. Putnam, associate professorand chairman of the mathematics staffof the College, to help finance thisyear's second Summer Institute forHigh School Teachers of Mathematics.The NSF funds pay for the travel, liv ing expenses, and half of the tuitionof fifty teachers from all parts of theU. S., as well as some of the University's expenses of operating the Institute.And finally, a grant of $10,000 willbe used by Barbara Palser, associateprofessor of botany, for detailed studiesof the internal structures of flowers ofthe heath or "woody bushes" family ofplants, which includes blueberries,cranberries, azaleas, heathers, and rho-dodendra.Public Health ServiceThree other research grants totaling$7,028 have been awarded to University scientists by the United States Public Health Service. The largest grantof $4,267 will be used by Joe Kamiya,assistant professor of psychology, instudies of the relation of dreams toperiodic changes in respiration, heartbeat, brain impulses, and metabolismin 30 human subjects. The PHS alsoawarded pre-doctoral fellowships toTheodore J. Spahn, department ofmedicine; Dr. Francis H. Straus, department of pathology; and Mark A.Goldberg, department of pharmacology.Hartford FoundationA John A. Hartford Foundation, Incorporated, grant of $301,600 has beenmade to the School of Medicine andClinics for a concentrated study of thecauses and treatment of pulmonaryhypertension. The grant is for a three-year period and will finance equipmentpurchases and salaries for what willbe one of the country's largest singleattacks on the little understood medicalcondition in which the blood flowsthrough the vessels of the lungs atabnormally high pressures. Unrelieved,pulmonary hypertension can lead todeterioration and clogging of the lung'sblood vessels, resulting in an overworked heart that becomes so inefficient that cardiac failure and deathcan follow.The Chicago study will be headedby a three-man team composed ofDr. William E. Adams, Dr. Peter V.Moulder and Dr. Edwin T. Long, whois on the staff of Suburban Cook County Tuberculosis Sanitarium. In addition, other departments of the University will cooperate in the study.Research on pulmonary hypertension,which affects children as well as adults,has been conducted at the Universityby Dr. Adams and others for the past15 years. The new grant makes possible a great broadening of the investigation.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEIt's in the FamilyAmong the children of alumnientering college this fall arefollowing: 1st row: MedvilleThroop, Jerome Shuart, ShilaSingh, Ruth Jackson, andPeggy Kauders; 2nd row: JoelE.

Lyrics weredone by Jeanne Phillips and music byWilliam Mathieu, who has composedmusic for other UT productions suchas "Pheasant Under Glass" and "Galileo.""Invalid" might not yet be ready forthe shelf. New York producers haveexpressed an interest in a possible off-Broadway production. Now the teamis wondering if anyone ever made amusical out of Aristophanes.Two Medical AppointmentsEurope's foremost authority on lungcytology, Dr. Heinz Grunze joined themedical staff this fall as a lecturer andresearch scholar. Dr. Grunze has cometo the U. S. on a fellowship providedby the American Cancer Society withtravel expenses paid by the FullbrightCommission.At the University he will lecture onthoracic cytology and the laboratorymethod of evaluating the health of the chest by microscopic study of cellsfrom the lungs. He plans to studymethods of cancer detection and therapy, and clinical problems, and willcomplete arrangements for the Englishtranslation of his classic German texton lung cytology. Dr. Grunze is co-chairman of the department of medicine at the Free University in WestBerlin.Named to head up the work in medical genetics at the University is Dr.Kimball Chase Atwood of the BiologyDivision of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Atwood has been seniorbiologist at Oak Ridge Laboratory since1951; his major interest is in radiationgenetics and biochemical genetics ofNeurospora. Much of his work in thesummer has been at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole.To Retire or not to RetireEmployers, unions, welfare agencies,and insurance agencies almost uniformly agree that the age of retirement is65, yet it is apparent to all that chronological and biological age are two different things.What is perhaps the first broad effortto establish the criteria of aging andthus a new standard for retirement isnow being attempted at the Universityunder a U. S. Public Health ServiceGrant. The scope of the study is wellindicated by the number of differentdepartments represented by the designers of the study: Robert K. Burns,executive officer of the Industrial Relations Center, and associate dean for the School of Business; Dr. Emmet E. Bay,professor of medicine; Dr. Bertha A.Klien, associate professor of ophthalmology; Ward C. Halstead, professorof medical psychology; Ernest W. Burgess, professor emeritus of sociology;Leonard Z. Breen, former associate professor of sociology, now at Purdue University; and Robert W. Kleemeier,director of the Moosehaven ResearchLaboratory in Orange Park, Florida.One hundred and thirty-two menhave been selected from 20,000 production workers in plants in the Chicago area. Sixty-six of these subjectsare in the 60-65 year-old range, andanother 66 are in the 40-45 age bracket.Without knowing the nature of theprojects, the subjects were sent to theUniversity clinics, given physical examinations, including an examination ofthe exposed blood vessels in the retinasof their eyes, to determine the condition of their arteries, and thus the extent of organic breakdown of the brain.They then performed on a battery oftests devised by Mr. Halstead to determine their abilities in comparison withother groups which have taken thetests.These tests measure such skills asability to abstract principles amongobjects, such as size, shape, number,color and brightness. One test is concerned with the ability of the eye todetect the rapid flickering of a light,until it flickers at so fast a rate thatit is apparently burning steadily. Blindfolded subjects are also asked to locateNOVEMBER, 1958 19objects in a form board by their feel.Other tests measure time sense, rhythm,and the ability to discriminate amongnonsense syllables.The results of physical examinationsclassified the men into the followingfour categories:Class 40-45 Age60-65 Total36 8313 289 112 2I ( continuinggood health) 47II (doubtful) 15III (retire at 65) 2IV ( retire at once ) 0The only category in which the results of the physicals correlated closelywith the results of Mr. Halstead's testswas in Class IV, in which both scorings revealed marked deterioration.Several weeks after their clinic visits,the 132 were interviewed at theirplants to determine their own estimatesof how old they thought they were,not in years but in life-stages. Theiranswers showed a negligible correlation with the psychological data and arelatively high correlation (.71) withthe medical results.The answers the men gave as towhen they thought old age begins werematched against their replies to thequestion of whether they wanted to retire at 65. Of those in the older groupwho said old age begins at 65 or earlier,62 percent wanted to retire at age 65;of those who said old age begins past65, only 15 per cent wanted to retireat 65. Among the 40-45 age counterparts, the same consistent proportion(about 77 percent) favored retirementat 65, irrespective of when they thoughtold age begins. Joe E. Spaeth, researchassociate of the Center, who did thecorrelations, believes these results indicate that the younger men have notgiven much thought to retirement.There was no significant correlationin the younger group between theirliking for their jobs and their desire toretire at age 65. But, in the oldergroup, of those who "very much" likedtheir work, only 19 per cent wanted toretire at 65; of those who liked theirwork "somewhat," 44 per cent; and 64per cent of those who liked their work"not particularly" or "not at all" wereready to quit at 65.Psychometer tests measuring manualdexterity and quickness of reaction confirmed the anticipated differences intwo groups due to age. However, thereis no significant variation in on-the-jobproductivity of the two groups. Theexplanation of this may be that thoughthe younger workers produce more,they have a higher rejection rate thantheir slower, more accurate elders. Also the close control exercised by workers over their associates' output may bea factor. made by us in our own workroomsOUR REMARKABLE NEW FALL SUITOF LIGHTWEIGHT DACRON-AND-WORSTEDHere is one of the most outstanding suits of theFall season. . .made of a fine 60 % Dacron* and 40 %worsted blend that was developed and woven exclusively for us.

The ultimate inhigh-temperature studies of 10 years agois several generations behind in termsof modern aircraft and missile development,Today's material requirements surpassanything envisioned 10 short years ago.Molybdenum and beryllium, for example,are still exciting metals with much promisefor space vehicles and ultra-high-speedaircraft. It now appears, however, thatthe full promise of such metals maybe fulfilled when they are used, not alone,nor as alloys, but when combinedwith other materials to form totally newtypes of structural materials.Such a "marriage" of metals, ceramicsand plastics is a promising approach tohigh- temperature problems that is beingvigorously pursued at Avco. It opensnew potential applications for manyexotic combinations.These bold steps forward are possibleat Avco, where materials research includesconcurrent basic studies and appliedresearch, plus developmental programs thatextend through the solution of processingand testing problems.The search for new knowledge goesforward simultaneously with the creation ofadvanced technology at Avco's Researchand Advanced Development Division. Thecreative man, whether he is interested inbasic studies or practical problems, finds hiseffort enhanced by the stimulus ofinterdisciplinary contact and feedbackfrom other related fields.Research and Advanced Development ismore than a descriptive title at Avco.It is a concept that promotes creativity.AvcoResearch and Advanced Development For information on unusual careeropportunities for exceptionallyqualified scientists and engineers,write to: Dr. R. W. Johnston,Scientific and Technical Relations,Avco Research and Advanced Development Div.,201 Lowell Street, Wilmington, Mass.Progress Works HereOne of the most important andbasic reasons for good telephoneservice is research. The manyadvances in speed, clarity, distance and convenience would nothave been possible without it.They would not have been possible either, in the same degree or aseconomically, without one centralresearch organization such as theBell Telephone Laboratories.This is the research division of theBell System. It has grown as theneeds of the nation have grown.The work of its hundreds of scientists and engineers covers many fieldsand goes exploring and developing inmany directions. But it is aimedprimarily at the betterment of communications services and the findingof ways to provide this better serviceat the lowest cost to the customer.Not just recently, but long agothe Bell System recognized the business and national need for basicresearch and it has devoted a considerable part of its laboratories program to this field.The "search for new knowledge —the effort to increase our understanding of nature— the probing into theunknown"— has brought substantial RELAYS VOICES UNDER THE SEAS. This is one of the repeater units in the new underseastelephone cables. These voice boosters make it possible for you to telephone Great Britainand Hawaii as clearly as you call across town. Developed by Bell Telephone Laboratoriesafter many years of research. Made to entirely new precision limits by Western Electric.benefits beyond their particular application to communications.An outstanding example was theinvention of the Transistor, one ofthe real breakthroughs in sciencethat come only at rare intervals.These amazing amplifiers, thoughlittle larger than a pea, can amplifyelectric signals up to 100,000 times.They can do many of the things avacuum tube can do— and more besides ! They have opened the way tonew products and improved others.There is no doubt that the Transistor has been one of the leading factors in an electronic boom andhas helped to create business andjobs in many industries. More than50,000,000 transistors will be madethis year.The research and manufacturingskills of the Bell System, already organized and at hand, are placed fullyat the service of the U. S. Government whenever we are called uponfor projects for which we are specially qualified.Among many present defense assignments is the development ofguidance systems for intercontinental missiles.BELL TELEPHONE SYSTEM
