The University and Northwestern are considering some form of cooperation, affiliation, or consolidation" toreduce duplication at a time when it wasbecoming obvious that too many strugglingcolleges had too few good faculty members and too few scholars."American education," said Hutchins,needs not merely a reduction in the multiplicity of its units; if it is to deservepublic support it must make itself clear."But "the whole proposal (merger) mayprove to be impractical, inexpedient, andimpossible." It was.This provided the inspiration for theBlackfriars' 1934 musical, "Merger forMillions," which included such charactersas Bunny Hutch, president of Petroleo ^<\h'r^NUniversity; A.

These headlines add up to a bigstory that's been in the growing stagesince 1952. This issue of the Magazine isdevoted to telling the University's role inthat story.Part of the story is sad for alumni, forit concerns the demolition of some buildings which were landmarks and stopping-places for students through many years.One could write an "In Memoriam" columnfor Handley's, the Pink Poodle, the oldU.T., for Misery Mansion, BuckinghamPalace, Kenwood Gardens and CootieCastle . . . but, as some of those namesindicate, such a column would also be inmemory of a good amount of crackedplaster and some vermin, too.Ground is broken, foundations are in,and buildings rising on many of the sitesof these former landmarks.

Y.DECEMBER, 1958 3In 1952 the slum warnings were on every corner of Hyde Park and Kenwood.The neighborhood was changing. It was slipping toward overcrowded rooming houses, hole-in-the-wall businesses and an unstable, transient population. Crime and delinquency rates were rising; garbage collectionstandards falling. Bold and persistent planning and action were necessary.4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEA Community of ScholarsTT IS within the characteristics of the great American universities that they must be located within the¦*¦ great American metropolitan centers. That decision was made by the Trustees of the University of Chicago in Harper's day. At that time a land company had offered to give property for the enterprise if itwould settle in suburban Morgan Park. The offer was rejected and on the ground that the University ofChicago must be part of a city; that it must have the resources, the laboratories, the inspirations and eventhe problems of metropolitan life at its doorstep.The University of Chicago has never been indifferent to the problems of its community. It recognized,many years ago, that an essential part of the community of scholars as distinguished from their mere collection was the fruitful interchange between student and teacher and between the various disciplines whichcould occur only when faculty lived within the University community. Chancellor Hutchins, in 1950, aptlyput the point: "Today a university can consider itself fortunate if its members live in the same neighborhood and have frequent social contacts; if it has an architectural plan that brings the members of the faculty into easy professional association and an academic organization that requires them all, however occasionally and superficially, to consider together the affairs of the university or any other problem outsidetheir specialties."That the university was compelled to deal with these problems was recognized as early as 1945. Eventhen Chancellor Hutchins, in his State of the University message reported:"For the last fifteen years the University neighborhood has steadily deteriorated, until today, I amashamed to say, the University has the unfortunate distinction of having the worst-housed faculty in theUnited States."A ND THIS problem was and remains an urgent one. A simple example may make this clear. Over theJ-~*- past year, I have compared the calendars of academic events carried on at the University of Chicagoin contrast to a similar calendar of another distinguished university, also located in a great metropolitancenter. The Chicago calendars start at 7 o'clock in the morning and run until 10 and 11 o'clock at night.Late afternoon seminars, evening meetings, colloquiums.The calendar of the other institution only seldom records an event after 4:30 in the afternoon. Why? Theanswer is simple. It has to do with the habits and requirements of a commuting faculty where the eventsof an academic day must be compressed between the hours when the commuters' train arrives and the hourwhen it departs. This arrangement creates— not the 'community of scholars'— it instead promotes 'their merecollection' for a time.Moreover, the commuting pattern itself is fatal to many kinds of research. The nine hospitals, comprising the Billings Research Group, are but one example. The care of the sick is a full time program-never compressible within the hours of a railroad time table.The clear implication of all this is that about the university there must be the kind of neighborhood andcommunity in which faculty, with freedom of economic choice to live elsewhere, will, nevertheless, electto live and raise their children. This is meant that urban renewal, in the view of the University of Chicago, is the responsibility of an urban university. It has also meant that the University of Chicago with itsresources and substances has taken leadership in the program of preserving and improving the central cityas a desirable place for all people to live.Julian Levi,Executive Director, South East Chicago CommissionDECEMBER, 1958 5TfTHAT WAS to become one of the most deter-™ mined and extensive of urban renewal projectsin the United States began on February 25, 1952. Thatevening an aroused Hyde Park citizenry packed ameeting of a neighborhood group, the Hyde ParkCommunity Council, demanding a halt to the risingnumber of crimes in the neighborhood.On March 17, a mass meeting was held in MandelHall. Two thousand Hyde Parkers crowded into theHall and adjacent rooms of Reynolds Club— it wasestimated that another thousand were turned away.Ranking police officials attended the meeting by invitation and, already under fire, got their earsscorched anew. Within a few weeks of the meeting,the then captain of the police district was retired.One of Chicago's best men, Captain Albert Anderson,was named to head the district.Another result of the meeting was the formation ofa committee of five; its spokesman was ChancellorKimpton. The committee was well armed. It had aforce of aroused citizens behind it and it had plentyof cash, for the University had put up $55,000 for afive-year campaign. Neighborhood organizations andinstitutions were requested to match this outlay andplans were made for a permanent organization. Notonly were the people clamoring for more police protection, but for long-range planning to eliminate thecauses of crime, and legislative action to effect properconditions.The committee of five was given ten weeks in whichto write a report on the community situation. Theyworked hard on this, averaging three nights a week ofwork. And they set what was to prove a pattern inHyde Park's efforts at urban renewal: they sought outthe expert opinions of such people as Professor ofSociology Louis Wirth, Criminologist Joseph Lohman,Professor of Law Ernest Puttkamer, Chicago CrimeCommission head Virgil Peterson.o When they presented their report on May 19, theyproposed a permanent organization with a full-timeprofessional staff, "The South East Chicago Commission." The commission, soon Galled the SECC, wascharged with projects ranging from improvement ofstreet lighting to setting up volunteer courtroom andpolice station observer corps. Of primary importancewas a proposed block-by-blcck inventory of the area'shousing and suggestions for conservation and rehabilitation of buildings. A quote from the report: "It isour intention to watch what occurs when a propertychanges hands, and, if any move is made toward illegalconversion, we shall, in co-operation with the existingcommunity organizations, raise hell! We can enlistpowerful people and groups in the community, mobilize the public-spirited citizens of our city, and enlistthe newspapers in our cause."The report and its recommendations were approvedthat night at a community mass meeting. The nextmorning the SEEC was operating at quarters in the Hyde Park YMCA, where it still has offices today.A full-time executive director, the Commission hiredJulian Levi, an experienced lawyer and businessman.Levi, whose brother is dean of the Law School, hasstrong ties with the University, having attended herefrom the elementary level through the law school, andsays he joined the SECC because he "wanted to dosomething for the University. If the University community is not pleasant, safe and attractive place inwhich to live, the University of Chicago, one of thegreat national assets, will become a fourth-rate college. I don't want to see that happen and I don't thinkit isa-necessary that it should happen."» A research expert in criminology, Don T. Blackiston,was made law enforcement officer for the Commission.Having taken his master's and PhD degrees from Chicago, Blackiston served with the state Departmentof Public Safety at Pontiac and with the U. S. Department of Justice Bureau of Prisons in Terre Haute,Indiana. Other staff members include a retired firemarshal who does building inspections and SarahWexler, who has experience in community organization and social welfare. She works on raising the four-fifths of SECC's annual $50,000 budget that comesfrom members of the community. Ten thousand dollars comes from University funds.Where the Police can't ActWith Don Blackiston insisting that the police dotheir job, the SECC found ways of assisting themwhere their hands were tied. Tavern owners in thedistrict were organized to stop violation of closing-hour laws and the serving of liquor to minors anddrunks. This was done through a combination ofcommunity pressure and pressure from the insurancecompanies. The SECC lined up the large insurancecompanies that write policies protecting tavernowners and landlords from damage suits brought forinjuries caused by patrons who have been drinking inthe tavern. The companies let it be known that thosewho didn't go along with the program would be facedwith cancellation of their policies.The same technique was effective in cleaning up ahotel that had become a narcotic distribution center.At that time, Levi pointed out, "One-third of all crimesin this neighborhood involve auto theft or thefts fromautos— crimes designed to gain quick cash for thethieves. The money then goes into the narcoticstrade . . ."Hotel keepers know that narcotics users and peddlers tend to operate from hotels." Seventy hotels inthe area organized to take part in an anti-narcoticsdrive. They agreed to blacklist guests known to benarcotics users and sellers, keeping a file on thesepersons.In 1951, police had made 68 raids in one hotel inthe area, arresting 119 persons. The hotel owners hadactually filed an injunction suit against the police to6 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEK^^KhI ^ JtjJHfE38S>toThe beginning of urban renewal: two thousand HydeParkers packed Mandel Halland the Reynolds Club in acommunity mass meeting.DECEMBER, 1958 7PHOTO CREDITS: Cover photo: SECC (Mildred Mead); Cover projection:Webb and Knapp; Page 4: SECC (Rus Arnold); Page 7: foreground, SECC(Stephen Lewellyn); background, Chicago Sun-Times; Page 8: top, center, andbottom, SECC; Pages 9 and 10: top and lower left, SECC (Rus Arnold); Page10: lower right, Stephen Lewellyn; center, Cop and Gown; Pages 12 and 13:SECC (Chicago Tribune,); Pages 14 and 15: projections, Webb and Knapp. The demolition of the first building was celebrated with speechesand sparklers.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE? «vstop them from raiding it. The Commission called oninsurance companies again in this case, and theypromptly canceled the coverage.The bitterness of the battle had to be seen to beunderstood. The same tactics were used in attackingthe conversion of housing into smaller, illegal units.Such owners found they had trouble obtaining insurance or their policies were cancelled. Banks wouldnot give them loans or mortgages.Real estate dealers in the area now warn newowners when they make a sale that illegal changeswill not be permitted. A brochure is handed all property purchasers describing what can and what can'tbe done to property. Banks and savings and loanassociations write clauses into mortgages, prohibitingchanges in the use of the property without the consentof the mortgage holder. The local newspaper runs aweekly column listing the court cases on housing. To stop slum speculators who were making fortunes outof flimsily converted, overcrowded buildings and cut-up mansions, the commission took photos of the interiors of the properties, showing illegal paperboardpartitioned basement apartments, exposed wiring, refuse accumulations in air spaces; the SECC had rentreceipts from tenants, tax bills and records of buildingand fire department inspections that had resulted intrifling fines. If the owner stayed to fight, he waspresented with this evidence in court.How do you prove an apartment has been convertedinto illegally small units when all the tenants havebeen rehearsed by the landlord to claim to be members of the same family? Once the SECC hired aPinkerton lady to masquerade as a door-to-door saleswoman. She offered gift coupons, one to a family.

At lowerright: SECC PlanningUnit director Jack Meltzer and Julian Levi lookover a building.J9F3Z10 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEResidents kept watch on their own neighborhoods,often organizing for local improvements. "Blockorganizations," which had been sponsored since1950 by a neighborhood group, the Hyde ParkKenwood Community Conference, were studied under a $7,500 grant. Training sessions in methods ofblock organization were set up, studies done to determine the effectiveness of the groups in achievinglocal improvement, and a manual was proved to beused by citizens who wished to organize blocks.THESE actions were concerned with the immediategoals, which Alderman Bertram Moss had warnedat the outset of the program, must not be lost in long-range plans. "Hopes for the patient does no good ifhe dies because of immediate neglect." But, whiledealing with individual housing offenders and policingproblems, the SECC was also laying the groundworkfor far more extensive activities.New legislative and judicial techniques were beingforged. When this new legislation was drafted, agroup at the University of Chicago Law School collaborated. For instance, when the novel remedy fordilapidated slum properties was suggested of having areceiver take possession of the property and sequesterits income for its rehabilitation, the City departmentsreceived a brief of the law and authorities.In June of 1953 two key bills were put before thelegislature in Springfield, and it might not be a coincidence that Mr. Levi was known to have donesome commuting between Chicago and Springfieldduring that month. The first bill gave cities the powerto set up conservation areas. Then, with the consentof committees chosen from the areas and the CityCouncil, a conservation board headed by a commissioner who is part of the city government, could require and enforce certain standards of building andarea use in the district. Repairs could be forced bycourt order. This was the Urban Community Conservation bill.The second bill was an amendment to the 1941Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation Act, providing that a private corporation, by obtaining permission of sixty per cent of the owners of land in thearea can accomplish many of the aims of the conservation plan act. The corporation would be givenpowers of eminent domain.Both bills became law, and were upheld by a decision of the Illinois Supreme Court in September, 1954.They have been basic to all the urban renewal projects which have followed.Within a month of Governor Stratton's signing theNeighborhood Redevelopment Bill, Mayor Kennelly ofChicago appointed a five-man board, as provided under the Bill, to approve redevelopment plans. Thesame day the Chicago Land Clearance Commissioninitiated a survey to determine which sites in a thirty-block area from 52nd to 57th, Woodlawn to the IC, should be developed. Within two weeks the SECCsubmitted plans for the first neighborhood redevelopment corporation in the city's history, requesting permission to demolish five "rotten apple" tenements inthe area and to replace them with forty-six modern,privately-financed row houses.In October of 1953, a grant of $100,000 was giventhe University and the SECC for establishment of aphysical planning unit to work on conservation in thesoutheast area. This Field Foundation grant was tobe used over a three-year period. Two years later,the City decided to use this planning unit to developthe over-all renewal plan for the area from 47th to59th, Cottage Grove to the lake. This meant the unitcould draw funds from a $198,000 federal planninggrant. Chicago was the first major city in the countryto get federal approval of its application for suchurban renewal aid.TN the five years since the planning unit went into¦*¦ operation, the neighborhood has seen the development of three major public and private rebuildingprograms, involving an aggregate of approximately135 million dollars. Half a dozen neighborhood redevelopment corporations had been formed under the1953 act; citizens of the area and city, state and federal governments had been asked to decide proposalafter proposal for neighborhood improvement; demolition, construction and rehabilitation got underway throughout the area from 47th to 59th Streetsand from Cottage Grove to the lake.While newspaper headlines turned* to the majorrebuilding programs in the area, residents continuedactive in block organizations. The Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference reported that the blockorganizations it sponsors had accomplished much.They had pressed for better city lighting and persuaded residents to leave porch lights on and installextra outside lighting. They had corrected more than1,500 housing and zoning violations by direct andfriendly contacts with owners. They had cleaned upstreets and alleys, reported holes in streets, brokencurbs and sidewalks needing repairs. They had abandoned cars removed, built playgrounds on vacantproperty, and encouraged block improvement throughlandscaping, painting and repair. Perhaps most important of all, they served as source of informationon community developments.The Conference, which has been cited by the American Council to Improve Our Neighborhoods, Inc.(ACTION) for its outstanding contribution to urbanrenewal, was formed in 1949 by a small group ofresidents, and now has an annual budget of $60,000,raised largely in the community. As the Conferenceworks closely with individuals on their personalhousing problems, it has done much interracial work.A year ago, it received a $2,000 grant from the FieldFoundation to further this work, and more recentlyit received a $20,150 Federal grant.DECEMBER, 1958 11Forty-eight acres of slum and blightcentering about 55th and Lake Parkhave been cleared, at a cost of approximately $11,500,000. Webb andKnapp will construct the apartments, homes and shopping centerto rise here this fall and winter.TheThree Major ProjectsTHE first project, called "Hyde Park A & B," involves the clearance of forty-eight and a half acresof land in the area along 55th and Lake Park, whichinvestigators found to be forty per cent blighted area.The City Council and the Housing and Home FinanceAgency of the U. S. Government were asked to grantfunds toward the purchase of condemned buildingsand the clearance of land. A total of $11,500,000 hasbeen appropriated.In the "B" project, along the north side of 54thstreet from Blackstone to Kimbark, some forty homeswill be built. They are already sold to University staffmembers, faculty and others. The SECC reports thathalf of the new residents are suburbanites movingback to the city.In the "A" project are included a minimum of 267row or single family houses and two eight-story apartment houses containing about 528 apartments. Theshopping center planned will include the largest super-mart in the Midwest. The houses will range in pricefrom $18,000 to $40,000, with at least half being $25,000or lower. Construction is now underway on all thesebuildings by Webb and Knapp, the firm which purchased the land from the city after it had been cleared.The Chicago Land Clearance Commission, an or-12 ganization under the city government, was responsiblefor the land clearance and the relocation of familiesliving in buildings to be condemned. In a period oftwo years, the Commission relocated 1,200 families,all into housing that is at least as good as that theyformerly occupied. In some instances, families livingin dangerous or unsanitary buildings were moved intotemporary dwellings until standard units were located. "The search for housing developed some extracurricular activities for the staff members," the commission director reported. "Jobs were found fora score of heads of families who were without income. Medical and relief services were arranged, anda new meeting place was established for an Americanization class for Spanish-speaking residents."Merchants were also given help in finding otherquarters. Reimbursements to them for moving expenses and loss of equipment totalled $225,000 paid on123 claims.TN THE second major project, the Southwest Hyde¦*• Park Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation isnow buying up property of a four square block areabounded by 55th and 56th, Cottage Grove to EllisAvenue. Acquisition and clearance is estimated tocost about three million dollars.The University will buy the property from the Corporation at the Corporation's cost of acquisition. TheUniversity will then use the land for married studentsTHE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEhousing, which will be constructed at an estimatedcost of $1,800,000.The plan was challenged by some twenty propertyowners in the area in a proceeding in the Circuit Courtof Cook County, and two appeals were taken to theIllinois Supreme Court, with a further proceedingbrought in the U. S. District Court and an appeal takento the Supreme Court. The main contention was thatthe Neighborhood Redevelopment Act is a public lawdesigned to help a neighborhood improve itself, andcould be executed only in slum and blight areas, forthe improvement of housing of the residents. Thegroup felt that the area concerned only demandedconservation measures.TN THE final and largest project, the Community-*- Conservation Board of Chicago will proceed withthe renewal of the area between 47th and 59th Streets,Cottage Grove to the lake, exclusive of the areas involved in the other two projects. There will be twentyper cent demolition involving 4,528 families, and theprogram will involve in direct public expenditures aFederal grant of $28,571,713 and a total local contribution made by the city, the Board of Educationand the Chicago Park District in the aggregate amountof $9,255,480. All construction in the area will beprivately financed; it will total about 27M million. Rehabilitation expenditures will come from a 30 milliondollar mortgage pool. In the strongest opposition the plan has met, certain aspects of the project were opposed by a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago.The chief objection was that residents of the area,which has a large Negro population, would be displaced without sufficient plans for resettlement. Ofthose actually to be displaced, 59 per cent are Negro,and 41 per cent white. Many Catholics in Chicago'sfifty per cent Catholic population spoke out in favorof the project, including one of its most ardent supporters, Mayor Richard J. Daley. The plan was eventually unanimously approved by the City Council.Where old buildings now stand in a tangle of tenements, stores, garages and warehouses, there will benew apartments set in lawns and gardens. Townhouses and shopping centers, will replace the oldstrip pattern of stores. New quarters will be providedfor 2,350 families. A few streets will be closed andturned into parks, and green park strips will discourage short-cutters from driving through residentialsections. The City will add 36.7 acres of new parks,playgrounds and open space. Institutions such as localchurches and synagogues, the Chicago College ofOsteopathy, George Williams College, and the HydePark YMCA will receive additional land. The ChicagoChild Care Society will build a new headquarters andday nursery, and a new treatment and research center for disturbed children will be built by the JewishChildren's Bureau.DECEMBER, 1958 13Buildings to rise: Hyde Park "A and B" and the married students' apartments . . .14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE"Y^et, the striking features of this enterprise are not-*- in real estate transactions or examples of the artof the city planner. "In the years to come," Mr. Levisuggests, "the essential thread of this story will turnrather to the leadership, the determination and thehigh courage which the University has displayed. It,of course, would have been far easier and much pleas-anter to have remained in the 'ivory tower' and deplore conditions from on high. The University choseotherwise. It elected to give leadership to the endthat American cities become not the symbol of failure but rather the evidence of success of Americandemocracy."DECEMBER, 1958 15NEWS OF THE QUADRANGLESS.S.A.'s Fiftieth AnniversarySocial Service Administration hascome a long way since the establishment in 1908 of a Chicago School ofCivics and Philanthropy. As dean ofthe School, Alton A. Linford, pointedout at a dinner honoring its fiftiethanniversary, "the original purpose, ofthe school was to train cadres of volunteers and to help enlighten the public about civic needs and social problems;" The University of Chicago wasthe first university to give full recognition to social work as a professionwhen, in 1920, the School of Civics andPhilanthropy was made a graduatedivision.Four years later the School of SocialService Administration became the firstschool in the U.

As Mr. Linford pointed out,"primary emphasis had shifted to thedevelopment of well-educated socialworkers to staff the increasingly demanding profession and to supply abasic theoretical understanding for this.profession through research."The anniversary dinner honored thesocial service agencies which had beencooperating with the school in fieldwork instruction. The anniversary celebration also included a three-day conference of guest educators and administrators of social work.USAF History CompletedA labor of twelve years, the officialhistory of the United States Air Forcehas been completed with the publication of the seventh and final volume ofthe series. Editors Wesley F. Craven ofPrinceton and James L. Cate of theUniversity of Chicago, both former AirForce officers, began work on thevolumes in 1945, when the Universityof Chicago agreed to assume responsibility for sponsorship and publicationof the history.Two of the most interesting chaptersin the final volume concern the AAF medical service and morale. The medical chapter was written by U of C associate dean of the Division of BiologicalSciences Dr. George V. LeRoy. "Moralefactors might differ from place to placeand from unit to unit and were apt tobe volatile within any unit at anyplace," comment Craven and Cate. "Butthere were certain constants— belief inultimate victory, realization that effortswere being made toward their well-being, and a general preference for theAAF over other services— that affectedfavorably most airmen of whateverstatus." A valuable aid to morale wasthe air-sea rescue service, which, alongwith the air surgeon's doctrine, reinforced the AAF stress of the value ofthe individual airman.Completion of the series was markedin Washington by the presentation of acopy of the final volume to Secretaryof the Air Force James H. Douglas, byChancellor Kimpton.The Society of BellringersAs this copy goes into the typewriter,the chimes in Mitchell Tower are ringing out "Happy Birthday." The concertis not in observance of the birthday ofChancellor Kimpton (they were rungfor him on October 7), but for thetenth birthday of H.R.H. Prince Charles,Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall—and to commemorate the fact that allthe bells at the University, carillon,chime, and handbell, were cast in England.The autumn calendar of the carillonand chime music played by membersof the Societas Campanariorum, includes much other timely, lively, andserious music. Arrangements of compositions by J. S. Bach were played onthe carillon as a prelude to the performance of his work, the Mass in BMinor; a chime concert was given inhonor of St. Cecilia, the patron saintof music, and a concert in honor ofSt. Catherine of Alexandria, the patron saint of bellringers because she wasmartyred on a wheel. Music fromScotland was played to welcome avisiting preacher from Edinburgh, thetenor bell in Mitchell Tower was tolledin observance of the funeral of HisHoliness, Pope Pius XII, and Hannukahmelodies played on the Mitchell Towerchimes preceding celebration of theMaccabbean Festival of Lights. Traditional concerts include the "SwingingPeal" sounded as the graduates leavethe chapel after autumn convocation,the concert commemorating the turnof the sun back into the track of springof the shortest day of the year, and theringing of the "Devil's Knell" on theMitchell Tower's chime. (This ringingof the tenor bell recalls the belief inthe Middle Ages that the devil diedeach year at the birth of Christ, andthus the Knell is sounded in the evening on December 24.)Chime music on campus is in chargeof James R. Lawson, the UniversityCarillonneur, and his Societas Campanariorum. The society is made up ofstudents who are members of the AlphaDelta Phi fraternity, as well as members of the international campanologi-cal fraternity.Medical Woman of the YearDr. Eleanor M. Humphreys, professor in the department of pathology, hasbeen named medical woman of the yearby the American Medical Women'sAssociation. Earlier this year, Dr. Humphreys was awarded the Golden Keyof the University of Chicago MedicalAlumni Association.Dr. Humphreys was president of theChicago Pathological Society in 1943and 1944.Though she retired from the University's faculty this fall, she still teachesand runs Billings surgical pathology lab,where the door is always open to students and their problems, even late intothe night.16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEQueen Fredrika of GreeceComing to the University for a day as "a modeststudent hoping to learn something about atomic energy," Queen Frederika proved that she was no ordinary visitor. She charmed the guests at the Quadrangle Club black-tie dinner in her honor and impressedthe scientists at the Argonne labs and the Fermi Institute with her sound knowledge of physics, which sheis studying in conjunction with the construction ofGreece's first nuclear reactor. Following a full day oftours of the laboratories, the Queen met Greek students and students of Greek descent at a receptionat Ida Noyes. Before leaving the Kimpton's for thedinner, she and her 19-year-old daughter, PrincessSophia, were serenaded by the "Greek" fraternities.The Queen and Princess are in the U. S. on a six-weektour which will include a number of atomic installations.Her son, 18-year-old Prince Constantine, is taking aseparate tour arranged by the State Department.Photo: Chicaqo Sun-TimesZen in the Chicago ReviewIn the landscape of Spring there isneither better nor worse.The flowering branches grow naturally,some long, some short."Long rooted in Japan, Zen is an ancient Chinese technique of mind-breaking discipline aimed at freeing the will.All things bubble along in one interrelated continuum, says Zen. Why tryto 'grasp' or 'stop' them. The real problem is spontaneity: how to 'let go' and'go with' the permanent impermanence.The Zen disciple must destroy his ego-consciousness, until his real self calmlyfloats on the world's confusion like apingpong ball skimming down a mountain stream."Time Magazine, in an article on thegrowing interest in Zen which includedthe paragraph quoted above, gave asturdy credit to the summer issue of theReview, which was devoted to Zen.Quoting at length the Review's leadarticle by chief U.S. exponent of the cult, Allan W. Watts, Time pointed outthat Westerners are probably attractedby Zen because it shuns supernatural-ism: people who are "with it" are nomysterious occultists, but just like us,and yet much more at home in theworld, floating much more easily uponthis ocean of transience and insecurity.The Time plug might help explainwhy the summer Review went into arecord-breaking third printing and soldmore issues that any other quarterly inthe U.S. (with the exception of Grovepress' Evergreen) .Organized under the division of thehumanities, the Review is staffed by 20student editors. Its primary goal is toturn out the best possible publicationfor circulation throughout the U.S. anda few foreign outlets. Therefore, manuscripts are largely sought from off-campus sources, and have included materialfrom writers all over the globe, TheSpring and Fall issues which have alsodone well on the magazine racks, weredevoted largely to San Franciscowriters. Foreign EducatorsTwenty-seven educators from sixteenforeign countries will be spending theAutumn Quarter on the Universitycampus as part of a six-months' studyof Americans and American high schoolsystems.This is the second year that the University has been selected to participatewith nine other universities and colleges in the nation in the "International Teacher Development Program,"sponsored by the State Department andthe U.

When the old Phi Delt and ZBT houses were torn down for the construction of theChicago Theological Seminary residence, this north side of Robie house appeared. The building has been purchased byWilliam Zeckendorf as the headquarters for his Webb and Knapp construction on the south side. When the redevelopment project is completed, the building will be given to some agency such as the National Trust to be maintained as anational monument. For this action, architect of the house Frank Lloyd Wright has said, "William Zeckendorf is thesaviour of one of the important cornerstones of American culture, one that we can call our own, the Robie house of Chicago." We wonder if Mr. Wright would also appreciate the large white Webb and Knapp sign over the doorway? Thereis a story that when Wright spent an evening with the owners of the house after it had been finished, he found it satisfactory in every respect . . . except that the wife of its owner did not wear gowns that were appropriate for his architecture.The new CTS residence will fill the long-felt need for housing for the married students who make up fifty-six per centof the student body of the Seminary.

Anderson, believes that "when theysee such sights as acres of parked carsoutside an assembly plant and spendan evening with an American family,they will learn something first-hand andbasic about our way of life."Photosynthesis StudyThough much progress has beenmade in recent years toward understanding the mystery of photosynthesis,the major problem — the manner bywhich plants harness sunlight in chlorophyll—remains unsolved.Recent experiments in the Basic Research Institutes by Norman I. Bishophave provided evidence that vitamin K,the substance necessary for the coagulation of blood, also plays a vital rolein photosynthesis.The evidence indicates, ProfessorBishop reports, that the vitamin is achemical catalyst present in the chloro-plasts. It seems to act as a "neutralcorner" for hydrogen atoms that havebeen separated from water. In the photosynthetic process, this hydrogenis combined with carbon to make carbohydrates, releasing oxygen into theair. Without vitamin K, it is suggested,the hydrogen would ultimately rejointhe oxygen to reconstitute water.Largest Cosmic Ray BalloonIn their continuing investigation ofcosmic rays next winter, Universityphysicists, under the direction of professor Marcel Schein, will launch thelargest balloon ever sent up. With this250-foot unmanned balloon, they hopeto take pictures of cosmic rays 130,000feet above the earth, and to investigatethe possible existence of the anti-matterthat experiments with ultra-high energycyclotrons have indicated might exist.It is believed that when this newform of matter and matter as we knowit meet, the result is their complete conversion to energy. A collision betweentwo such particles would show on thephotographic plates that will be sentup in the balloon.The View from BartlettThe editor of the athletic newsletter,Sportshorts, summed up the situationto date in this manner: "Soccer squadhas a dismal season— cross country team not so hot either— winter sport's seasoncoming up.""The football season has ended—" or,as Director of Athletics Walter Hasshas put it, "been up-ended" by stiffopposition shown the Maroons in theirfinal game with Wilson Junior College.A lack of game experience and sufficient practice led to the team's beingoutscored two touchdowns to one.About thirty men reported regularly todaily practices in the north field during the season.That "dismal and disastrous" seasonof the largely inexperienced soccersquad ended with five games lost andone won, and a record of three wonand five lost gave the varsity crosscountry team hopes for a better nextyear.Winter sports will include basketball, fencing, indoor track, gymnastics,swimming, and wrestling.One of the most interesting gamesto be played in basketball will be whenthe Maroons go to Marquette, Michigan, where they will meet the NorthernMichigan College Wildcats and helpdedicate a new million-six-hundred-thousand dollar "playpen," which seats6,000 spectators. No count on the18 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEstanding room is available yet.The varsity schedule has been increased to include games with the U. S.Merchant Marine Academy at KingsPoint, L. I., N. Y., the New BedfordInstitute of Technology in New Bedford, Mass., and Wayne State University. The B team has also enlarged itsschedule to a total of eleven games.Coach Hass estimates that 75% ofthe undergraduate body will take partin the various athletic programs thisquarter. This means that the athleticfacilities will be in almost constant use.In addition to University teams competing in intramural sports and informal activities, intercollegiate eventslead to such a schedule as that of February 6 and 7, when a total of ninecollege teams will be on campus tocompete with University teams in sevendifferent athletic events, involving fivesports.Mr. Solomon's ReportChicago businessmen and industrialists, reading the report which they hadsponsored on the economy of the Chicago area, found that a theory on whichthey had long based important decisions, is largely a misconception. Professor Ezra Solomon of the BusinessSchool and his assistant, Zarke Bilbija,reported that the body of business statistics which htey had assembled on theChicago area for the Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry, indicates that Chicago's diversity of industry is not a buffer against recession."In fact, according to the study, Chicago's economy has become heavilyconcentrated in durable goods— the villain of the recent recession, and employment during the setbacks falls farmore sharply in the Chicago regionthan that in the nation as a whole."In general, however, the study foundthe Chicago region well ahead of thenational trends in per capita output,income and saving.The three-year study concentrated onthe period from 1940-1945; it surveyedan area of six counties with a population of six million, forty-one thousand,in the immediate Chicago industrialcomplex. It included the Indiana steelmill region.So complex was the data that in hispreliminary report upon finishing thestudy, Solomon used only one of theyears covered — 1955 — to illustrate thescope of the conclusions.In 1955, which Solomon described asa "typical" year, the population of thesix counties in the study was 6,041,000.That's 3.68 per cent of the nation'spopulation.Compared with the rest of the nation,the study showed that in 1955 the Chicago region:DECEMBER, 1958 — Employed 4.45 per cent of the workers, spent 4.87 per cent of the nation's outlay for consumption, turnedout 5.45 per cent of the nationalproduct and put aside 7.02 per centof the country's savings.— Produced an average value of grossoutput per capita of $3,430, or 48per cent higher than the nationalaverage.— Received a total personal income of$15,460,500,000, or 5.05 per cent ofthe national total; with wages andsalaries in the Chicago region accounting for 74.51 per cent of thissum in contrast to the national average of 68.75 per cent.— Earned a per capita personal incomeof $2,551, or 38 per cent higher thanthe national average.— Came out with disposable personalincome totaling $13,507,100,000 (billions) after taxes, 5 per cent of thenational total with personal disposable income per capita in Chicagoreaching $2,228, 35 per cent higherthan the average for the country.— Spent less of disposable personal income on consumption of goods andservices — 91.8 per cent comparedwith 94.2 per cent in the nation; butsaved more — 8.2 per cent comparedwith the national average of 5.8 percent — a per capita rate of savingsalmost twice as great as the nationalfigure."Collectively," Solomon summarized,"Chicago just works harder."This was the first comprehensiveaccount of the basic economic "flows"within a major metropolitan area. Government and business have been forcedto make decisions on the assumptionthat national trends can be projectedinto regional trends. Such projectionsare, Mr. Solomon says, misleading. Taking 1955 as a typical year, theresearchers found metropolitan Chicago a flourishing business area.But Professor Solomon also stressedthe vulnerability of the regional economy, noting that the concentration ofmetal-working industries here wasgrowing. Such industries tend to behave like a single industry during recessions, he observed."That's why," the professor went on,"the Chicago area suffered a bigger decline than all but four of the othermajor metropolitan areas in the nation."The instability is likely to get worse,he warned."This may be a necessary price wehave to pay for our rate of growth andour high levels of output and income."The report will be incorporated in abook to be called "The Economy ofMetropolitan Chicago, 1940-1956."Appointment in BusinessRobert L. Reid has been appointedassociate dean for special programs inthe School of Business. Mr. Reid, whois associate professor of business law,will continue to serve as director ofthe executive program, and in his newcapacity will be responsible for alloff-campus programs of the BusinessSchool. These programs will includethe Downtown program and the conferences staged by the School of Business, as well as additional programsnow being planned for business executives.Having been with Chicago Title andTrust Company, Mr. Reid came to theBusiness School in 1944. He holds anSB degree from the U. S. MerchantMarine Academy, an AB degree fromDartmouth, and an LLB from ChicagoCollege of Law.Faculty of the Business School: Robert L. Reid and Ezra Solomon19A Reportfrom this Summer'sInternationalScientific MeetingsSCIENCE:East & Westby Theodore BerlandScience Writer, U. of C.Public Relations Officej\ mong the 120 University of Chicago faculty members who thissummer fanned from the Midway toall parts of the globe to attend scientific meetings were a nuclear physicist who sat on the InternationalGeophysical Year steering committee; a leading authority on the solarsystem; and a radiochemist who participated in conferences on the detection of nuclear explosions. The Open Iron DoorJohn A. Simpson, one of the twoAmericans on the fifteen-man groupthat composed the Special Committeefor the 1GY (the CSGI), commented onthe IGY, our contemporary "GreatestShow on Earth". The "Show" openedwith the detection of strong sunspotdisturbances on July 1, 1957, and willend December 31, with rockets andsatellites in outer space. In this time,"We will learn more about the earth,its history, and the space around usthan we have over an integrated period of a hundred years in the past."As a scientist, Simpson is known forhis studies of the origin and activitiesof cosmic rays. His recent finding thatthe equator, of the earth's magnetic fieldin outer space does not coincide withthe magnetic equator at the groundwas confirmed by Russian scientistswith the announcement in Pravda ofSputnik II data.This summer, Simpson met the Russians firsthand at Moscow meetings ofthe CSAGI and the International Astronomical Union and at a session of theRussian Academy of Sciences at whichhe lectured. The visit convinced himthat the West, while scientifically sophisticated, is in other ways naive.American scientists shone brightly withIGY reports and satellite data givenfreely. But they spoke quietly whenthey joined forces with Great Britainto oppose another year of IGY, as proposed by the Soviet Union and supported by most of the other countriesof the world.On his return to the campus, he saidhe personally believed that, "if beforecoming to Moscow, American scientistshad been able to obtain a clear assurance of support for continuation ofIGY, the United States delegation couldhave captured the imagination andleadership on this question instead ofthe U.S.S.R., as happened." But, in fact,the opposite course was taken: theUnited States and Great Britain, priorto the beginning of the IGY, extracteda promise from their scientists not torequest additional funds for continuingtheir IGY programs.In addition, he said that becausethe meeting was held in Moscow,"the impression (was created) in theEast and elsewhere that Moscow isthe center for science and tolerance."The Soviet capital was chosen for thisyear's meeting because it was offeredformally. The United States Department of State, on the other hand, implied it would not invite CSAGI, Simpson said. And so the Soviets exploitedour reticence. "It is generally knownthat most of the graduate studentsand many scientists in the Soviet Union are forbidden to travel beyond thecountry's borders. So they make theworld-wide scientific mountain cometo the Russian academic Mohammed,"he said.Simpson said that "after threeweeks in Moscow I was greatly impressed with the vigor and eagernessof the Soviet people to acquire culturaland scientific leadership. He is convinced that Russia is trying to getinto a position in which it can "export" scientific manpower to Red Chinaand other nations as an effectivemeans of extending its influence. Thegrowth of its engineering manpowerproves this, he believes, while, in contrast, the United States will not havean excess of scientific manpower forsuch export. To increase the numbersof intelligentsia, he said, Russia is dangling material acquisition— high salariesand incentive scales— before potentialwriters, artists, scientists, engineers, and—soon— lower-grade teachers. Said Simpson, "They are essentially practicingwhat we preach, namely, capitalist incentive."The issue of extension of IGY wasresolved by an agreement to end IGYas scheduled but to have an additionalyear of global scientific effort called"International Geophysical Co-opera-tion-1959."Reports at a scientific symposium revealed the Soviet Union's "enormousstrides in research, particularly its usesof satellite vehicles for research in ionospheric and communications physics.Because they can send up much heavierequipment than we can in Americansatellites, they have introduced cosmic-ray experiments that we have not yetattempted. They send aloft manypounds of radiation counters, shielding,and complex electronic equipment."As to satellite data, "it is generallyrecognized that the Soviet Union hasmore complete orbital data on theirsatellites than the rough informationwhich they have issued. It is now believed that the reluctance to releaseprecise data is tied to secrecy withinsome areas that lie part way betweenscience and the military. The UnitedStates has presented in a forthright wayits best positions on United States* satellites, and, because of this, we hopeagreements on the exchange of information of this kind will occur.Ease-up for ExcellenceAnother University of Chicago scientist who attended the InternationalAstronomical Union meeting, Gerard P-Kuiper, reported on his return that,while everything is "not yet rosy" forRussian scientists, there seems to havebeen a great ease-up in recent years.20 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEKuiper is a professor and chairman ofthe astronomy department.He said many Russian scientiststalked freely of how, under the formerregime, men would disappear fromlaboratories and of the danger involvedin asking about them. "Things are relaxed," he added; "there is no trace ofthis fear, I would say, at the presentmoment."Most of the IAU delegates agreedthat Russian astronomy is improvingrapidly. From visits to Polkova Observatory near Leningrad and the University of Moscow's observatory, fromRussian papers presented at the IAUsessions, and from conversations withRussian astronomers, Kuiper estimatesthat the Soviet Union's strongest areasin astronomy are solar physics andradio-astronomy. He regards the firstarea as outstanding mostly because ofthe new facilities in the Crimea. However, the excellence of the second areais not so much due to equipment as tothe leadership of men like Professor I.S. Shlovsky, who is perhaps the world'smost distinguished radioastronomer.Other strong areas are galactic evolution and aster-oid studies at the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy in Leningrad.While the scientific value of the IAUmeeting was appreciable, Kuiper regarded as far more important the contacts made between East and West. Inmany cases, he said, it was the first opportunity for Western astronomers tomeet and talk to their Eastern colleagues and to see their facilities. Because such face-to-face contacts facilitate better relations, he believes, thereshould be a step-up in exchanges ofscientific visits. Also, he said, there ismuch that we can learn from the Russians. "Because their scientific programs are planned by a central agency,the Russian Academy of Sciences, theyhave excellent direction of their overall research. With this type of systemyou can obtain spectacular results withfewer resources than otherwise," hesaid.The Russians, he said, truly intendto outdo us— not militarily but by organization. "Because scientists on bothsides agree that modern war wouldmean suicide for the human race, wemust realize that, while they mean tobeat us, it will not be at war. Andthey have plenty of time. The Communists think in terms of centuries."Toward Detecting a BombOn one side of a conference table inthe Palace of Nations in Geneva,Switzerland, sat top atomic scientistsfrom Canada, France, Great Britain,and the United States; on the other John A. SimpsonGerard P. KuiperandAnthony L Turkevich were their counterparts from Czechoslovakia, Poland, Rumania, and theU.S.S.R. Among the handful of scientific advisers to the American delegationwas Anthony L. Turkevich, professorof chemistry in the Fermi Institute forNuclear Studies. He is a consultant tothe Atomic Energy Commission at LosAlamos and Argonne National Laboratories and speaks Russian as a resultof his family background.There was only one specific reasonfor the meeting: to determine the feasibility of detecting nuclear explosionson a global basis and thus to lay thegroundwork for international talks onbanning atomic tests.The sessions were to last as long asnecessary and took almost eight weeksin July and August. There was neitherovert emotional fall-out during the talksnor the usual casual corridor chats ofscientific meetings. Rather, he said, theentire atmosphere was one of restraineddignity and formality. The formalitywas courteous, not curt. Turkevich'simpression was that there was honestsincerity on both sides of the table.The product of the group's effortswas a solid scheme for pinpointing withhigh probability nuclear explosionsgreater than 1 keloton (equal in explosive force to 1,000 tons of TNT)above ground or 5 kilotons underground. The plan, said Turkevich, callsfor 180 stations, m o s t of which wouldemploy four methods of detection:1. The filtering from the air of radioactive-bomb debris — A very sensitivetechnique, this method relies on the detection of microscopic quantities of anyof the thirty elements and isotopes produced by fission (which is also employed in fusion bombs). Ground stations would capture the debris that ridesdown from high altitudes on particles ofdust some five to twenty days after ablast occurred. High-altitude aircraftwould look for it even before it fell out—within two to five days after a blast.This is the only method for uniquelydetermining the nuclear character of anexplosion.2. Listening for the very-long blastsound waves.— While a blast could befixed with triangulation by severalsound stations, the pounding of avalanches, volcanoes and meteorites soundconfusely like A-explosions.3. Tuning in the burst of electromagnetic signals generated during nuclear explosions— These can almost immediately be detected at distances ofmore than 6,000 miles. However, in thearea which one detector can cover-about half again the size of NorthAmerica— some ten to a thousand lightning flashes per second, each emittingConcluded on following pageDECEMBER, 1958 21radiofrequencies close to that of an H-or A-bomb, could create a backgroundof spurious events from which it wouldbe difficult to select a nuclear explosion.4. Seismographs to feel the tremorsin the ground from nuclear explosionsabove 5 kilotons. — This is essential,since none of the first three methodscan detect underground nuclear blastsbecause of the containment of radioactive debris, the muffling of soundwaves, and the shielding of radiosignals. To help cancel the complications of an estimated ten thousandearthquakes of 1-5-kiloton energy invarious parts of the earth each year,the detecting stations would be mostdense (620 miles apart) in such areasas the United States and most sparse(1,050 miles apart) where earthquakesare rare, such as in Africa. Despite boththis and the ability to tell from thecharacteristics of a seismic wavewhether or not a jolt resulted from natural or nuclear causes, some 10 percent of all detected earth waves wouldbe subject to suspicion.Turkevich said that, because wateris such an excellent medium for sound,deep-sea blasts could be easily detectedby hydrophones on patrol ships andcoast lines. Conceivably, nuclear bombscould also be tested in outer space.They should release light flashes andradio signals, but no one has ever detonated an A-bomb in space, and littleis known in regard to detection.To cope with marginal detectionsand spurious events, the East-Westgroup recommended international inspection teams to enter suspicious areasand conduct investigations, he said.SARGENT'S DRUG STOREestablished 1852Chicago's most completeprescription and chemical stockphone RAndolph 6-477023 N.

At thattime, I was the school teacher of the place and Dr. Redfield was exploring the peninsula with the aim of selecting the communities to carry onhis famous project on social change. He invited me to be his assistantand, from that date on, we were in close association. We did field worktogether, I received his teachings here at the university and, later on,his valuable advice on most of my anthropological activities in Mexico.His interest in promoting the development of anthropology among us,in Mexico, was unlimited: helping, inspiring and guiding in many ways.Before his work among us, Mexican ethnography was a part of theliterary tradition and inspired, in a high degree, on romantic feeling.That is why the contributions of our best ethnographers (including Dr.Redfield and his wife) had to be published in a monthly magazine called"Mexican Folkways," devoted to art, archaeology, legends, festivals andsongs.The type of field work that Dr. Redfield introduced to Mexico wasentirely new, not only to us, but throughout Latin America. His workin Tepoztlan showed us the basic principles of field work and the possibilities of applying all the rules of objectivity, but without losing thathuman touch and sympathy so necessary for getting the feeling andintimate view of any living culture.There is no doubt that his two classic books on Chan Kom andTepoztlan, may be considered as the milestones of a new approach tosocial studies among us. His book "The Folk Culture of Yucatan," wherehe presented most of his theoretical views on social change, has inspiredmany of the best studies that we now have on groups in Mexico, Guatemala, and other parts of Latin America.It seems to me that this friendly reception of his methods and ideasin Latin American countries has been due not only to his scientific strictness, but also to his literary quality and humanistic approach so congenial to our temperament.Besides that, the presence in Mexico of Dr. Redfield was coincidentwith an intellectual renaissance, when men like Vasconcelos AlfonsoCaso, Othon de Mendizabal, Diego Rivera and many more were striving to achieve a higher place in the sciences and the arts. So that, we—the Mexicans— were very fortunate on having the right man at the rightmoment.On the human side, Dr. Redfield was a man of very tender andamiable disposition, specially when dealing with the natives of simplesocieties. I can remember very clearly how happy and relaxed was heduring his long periods of field work, when he had the opportunity toparticipate in the local activities of the Indians and being moved by thesame feeling and emotions as they. In this conception he was verydifferent from the man confronting serious matters of theoretical importance with his colleagues and students: then, he was serious, demanding, rigorous, with a devastating logic that made us feel reverence andrespect for him.But he was incomplete without his family, and especially, without hiswife, who was of such help to him in all of his trips and writings. Heneeded very much the emotional and intellectual support that came fromthem. The best of his moments were spent with his family. Just to givea glimpse of this aspect of his personality, I will mention very brieflythe occasion when traveling along the trails of Quintana Roo, he boughtfrom the Indians a newly born deer, and took care of it as if it were ahuman baby. He didn't mind the difficulties and troubles of travelingfor days on horseback with the little doe in his arms. When, finally, wearrived at the city of Merida where his family was staying, he had asa reward, superior to anything else, the joy of his children at receivingthe new member of the family. Moments like this were the ones thatmade him really happy.Such was to me the man who through his wisdom, understanding andtolerance, showed us the ways of the good life, of life as it ought to belived in order to be of some value in our existence.CHICAGOWEDGWOODDINNER PLATES.,.-, Four plates to each set withFour different campus scenes1 ROCKEFELLER CHAPEL2 MITCHELL TOWER3 HULL COURT GATE4 HARPER LIBRARYIdeal Christmas gifts.
