Whitney, CLU ¦29 ChicagoHowardand other HowardsOn the night of January 29, when(as you know already from the February Magazine) 135 friends of HowardW. Mort gathered to bespeak their regards for the retiring Alumni Association director and present him with abook of letters and an electric organ,we found ourself musing about themen who went before him in the jobwhich we now hold as Howard'ssuccessor.There were about six of them, the"about" being a necessary cloak because the first fifteen years of theAlumni Association are impreciselychronicled. Apparently George O. Fair-weather, '07, J.D. '09, was the first manto devote a substantial part of his salaried time to affairs of the Association.Mr. Fairweather, now retired, did sowhile working for his law degree in1907-09.Then came Harry A. Hansen, '09,who mixed his duties at the newlyformed Alumni Council (predecessorof today's Alumni Association) withpublicity writing in 1909-12 and wenton to a noteworthy career in journalism. He contributed one of the choicestitems in Howard's book of testimonialletters: an Alumni Council receipt,circa 1910, duly admitting Howard tolife membership in the Association inconsideration of "pure gold."The Executive Committee of the Association, incidentally, did the samething a few minutes before the dinnerfor Howard on January 29. Constitu tional niceties were happily disregardedin conferring life membership on ineligible non-alumnus Mort — whodrafted the constitutional provisionswhich bar him. (Howard has no Chicago degree; the course-hours total ofhis graduate work at the University isless than the Association's constitutional standard for being consideredan alumnus.)The late Frank W. Dignan, '97,Ph.D. '05, was Harry Hansen's successor in 1913-14. There ensued five yearsin which John Fryer Moulds, '07, laterSecretary of the University, was andwas not Alumni Council Secretary. Wemust ask Mr. Moulds, now retired inClaremont, California, to interpret theintriguing minutes of the period for ussometime. Apparently it was agreed onall sides that the alumni secretaryshipwas a full-time job, but the finances ofthe fledging Alumni Council were farshort of that goal and President Judsonwas disinclined to make up the difference. Mr. Moulds filled the gap, clearlymore from love than money.Finances had improved enough by1919 that Adolph G. Pierrot, thirdmember of '07 to hold the job, couldbe hired as the first full-time Secretaryof the Alumni Council. Pierrot, whodied only this past September, serveduntil 1926. The record of these years,in which membership more than tripled,is admirable.After an interregnum stretchingalmost two years, during most of whichAllen Heald, '26, J.D/30, was actingsecretary, the late Charlton T.

Financedthrough a $100,000 Ford Foundation grant, it is located in the Social Sciences Building,in the basement. A student in one of the foreign language courses using the facility maygo into the laboratory and request that a certain tape or record be played. From the control room the tape will be programmed over one of seven channels. The student will beseated in the main section of the laboratory where there are ten rows of seven boothseach. Twelve of these booths (such as the one at left) are equipped with tape recordersso that the student may, if he desires, record his own pronunciation to compare it withwhat he hears through the earphones. He may also duplicate the instruction tape as helistens to it, and take it home for his later use. In 24 of the booths— those equipped withonly earphones and microphone— he may listen, respond, be in communication with hisinstructor in the control room and be monitored from the control room by the instructor.In the other booths— equipped only with earphones— he may listen passively, or listen andrespond privately, that is, with no record.In tile Control room the instructor or technician is responsible for all programmed tapes. Theyare not available for individual replay in the student booths, to avoid accidental erasureand the like. If a student wants to listen and respond at his own pace, controlling his owntape, he can work with a copy he had made in one of the booths equipped for transcription. There is provision for the instructor to work through an intercom system, with asmany as 24 students at a time, from a central position in the control room. He can monitor any of these 24 booths without the student's knowledge, as well as record the student'sresponses for his own later checking. Student technicians are on duty at all times to assistthe students and the instructors. Faculty members planning field trips abroad and students interested in languages not offered in formal courses may use laboratory researchmaterials in such languages not offered in formal courses as Korean, fzeltat (a Mayan language), Danish, Welsh, Indonesian, Dutch, Thai, Finnish, Kpelle (a language of Liberia),OjJbwa and other American Indian languages, Burmese, Rumanian, Yoruba (a languageof Nigeria), Portuguese, and Hungarian. New materials are constantly being added, andold ones brought up-to-date.1 He aaaitlOnai facilities which make this probably the most complete and best equippedlanguage laboratory in the country include a separate recording room available to facultymembers to prepare their own tapes, recording new materials or revising old. As with allthe equipment in the laboratory, this room is binaural. It is structurally designed as afloating room, 70 percent dead— 30 percent live. A rear-view projection screen is locatedin one wall of the control room opening onto a seminar room, also equipped for stereosound. The purpose: "correlated liguistic body study/7 or the facial expressions, gesturesand postures that can be so much a part of communication. A laboratory will be equipped with special instruments for analysis of sound and sound production. Sound comparisons will be possible by spectrograph and other equipment. In charge of keeping the laboratory linguistically sound is acting director Eric P. Hamp, professor of linguistics. Equallyinterested in the project is professor of linguistics and anthropology Norman A. McQuown.Technical director is Donald Ledin. It's a growing project for all of them. With laboratoryinstruction currently available in 26 languages, there is a total of 45 languages now being taught at the University. ¦MARCH, 1963 3It is now almost exactly ten years since Stalin's death. It has, ofcourse, been a decade of remarkable changes in Russian life,among them a series of zigs and zags in Soviet literary policywhich must be decidedly puzzling to people who see only anoccasional news story on the subject. So-called "thaws" and"freezes" seem to have followed one another without muchrhyme or reason.RECENT SOVIET LITERATURE,U UL AM IF [d)BY HUGH MCLEAN, chairman of the university's NEWLY FORMED DEPARTMENT OF SLAVICLANGUAGES AND LITERATURES. MR. MC LEAN IS ANAUTHORITY ON 19TH CENTURY RUSSIAN WRITING ASWELL AS AN INFORMED SCHOLAR ON CURRENTTRENDS, AND HIS ASSESSMENT OF THE LAST 150 YEARSOF RUSSIAN LITERATURE HAS HAD THE HONOR OFBEING THE SUBJECT OF AN "UNUSUALLY VIOLENT"REACTION FROM IZVESTIA. HE HOLDS DEGREES FROMYALE, COLUMBIA, AND HARVARD; JOINED OURFACULTY IN 1959, AND IS NOW A PROFESSOR. THISARTICLE IS BASED ON A SPEECH TO THE CITIZENS'BOARD OF THE UNIVERSITY, FEBRUARY 13, 1963.THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEI he last years of Stalin's life, from 1946 to 1953,had been the deepest freeze of all, probably the mostoppressive and stagnant period in the whole historyof Russian intellectual and artistic life. From therethe thermometer could only go up. The first signsof thaw appear in 1954. It was the title of Ilya Ehren-burg's novel which provided the apt metaphor thathas become so inevitable ever since. The novel wasa pretty feeble affair, and the thaw it heralded quiteshallow; but it was a symbol, a sign of the times.However gingerly, it touched on subjects that wouldhave been impossible a year earlier. About the sametime a rather pathetic article by an obscure critic borethe title "On Sincerity in Literature;" it timidly voicedthe wistful plea that literature would be better ifwriters would express real rather than spurious feelings.Even such muffled protests were enough to causealarm in official quarters. The bosses were uneasyabout allowing any cracks to appear in the officialfacade of total Soviet unanimity on all points, andbefore the end of 1954 the temperature was oncemore lowered, though not quite to Stalinist levels.The heralds of spring were rebuked and temporarilysilenced, but there was no talk of arrests or persecution.In 1956 the second thaw breaks through, warmerand more penetrating than the one before. In someof the stories and poems published that year youseem to feel the writers pushing against the limits oftolerance, struggling to break out of the narrow confines where they had been held so long. Sometimesit is merely a sturdy insistence on the validity andsignificance of private experience, that there are important areas of life where the party line is irrelevant.Elsewhere something like real social criticism appears,almost muckraking—though very mild by Westernstandards. Writers dared to point out some discrepancies between the official ethos of Communism andthe actual conditions of Soviet life.The unfortunate coincidence of this second thawwith the revolt in Hungary and the upheaval in Polanddoubtless hastened the coming of the new freeze, butit might have come anyway. Early in 1957, the erringwriters received severe dressings down, including threefrom Khrushchev himself.Since that time the picture has been less consistent.You no longer get the impression of general thawsfollowed by freezes, of groups of writers pressing forward and the regime dragging them back, butrather of a series of isolated hot and cold blasts. Perhaps a better metaphor would be a series of geysersbreaking through ice; but even this is not really adequate, since many of the eruptions are artificially produced, not spontaneous. We will have to say that someof our geysers are operated with a system of underground plumbing which can be turned on and off moreor less at will.I don't want to bore you with a long enumerationof these geysers, since they all have difficult Russiannames. I will limit myself to two of the most recentand most interesting. One is a series of manifestopoems by a young poet named Evgeny Evtushenko,who has received a great deal of publicity as Russia'sequivalent of the Angry Young Man. The two mostspectacular of these poems are "Babij Jar" (1961), inwhich Evtushenko touched on the delicate issue ofanti-Semitism in the USSR and took a vehement standagainst it; and "The Heirs of Stalin," published inPravda in October of last year, in which the poet celebrates the removal of Stalin's body from the mausoleum and warns the country against the hidden Stalinists who long to resurrect him and return to the evilsof the past. As poetry, Evtushenko's poems leave agreat deal to be desired; they are slapdash and slovenly and often sentimental; but they have a breath offreshness and youthful independence which is engaging; and he seems to have enormous appeal for hisown generation of Russians, who regard him as aspokesman and prophet.A second and even more spectacular geyser was thepublication last November of a short story or shortnovel called "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich."Its author, whose name is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, wasuntil then entirely unknown, apparently a high schoolmathematics teacher in the provincial town of Ryazan.The theme of this story is sensational enough: it is adetailed, hour-by-hour account of a single day in thelife of one of the inmates of a Soviet concentrationcamp— corrective labor camp is the official term— inthe early 1950's. A grimmer, bleaker, more miserableday can hardly be imagined. Not only is the subjectsensational, but the work is written with literary talentof a very high order. I believe that Solzhenitsyn'swork will have a permanent place in Russian literature, which Evtushenko's poetry certainly will not. Irecommend it to you highly. Although it only appeared in Russian in November, our StakhanoviteAmerican publishers have already brought out twocompeting English translations for you to choose from.The publication of such works would seem to indicate a high degree of liberalization of Soviet literaryand intellectual life, even something approaching artistic freedom. On the other hand, there have beensome powerful refrigerating or illiberal tendencies atwork at the same time. The most spectacular manifestation of these was probably the campaign againstPasternak in 1958; but there have been a number ofmore recent chilling episodes. Only last DecemberKhrushchev delivered himself of a virulent diatribeagainst abstract art, thus apparently ending any hopesMARCH, 1963 5that Russian painters might be allowed to produce anything but propaganda posters. Shortly after this asatrap of his named Ilichev spelled out the implicationof these remarks for literature: the new tolerance inthe arts does not mean tolerance of decadence orbourgeois ideology, so watch out.What can be the explanation of these seeminginconsistencies? What is the underground plumbingsystem beneath the geysers, and what motivates themen who turn the valves on and off?Obviously there are two kinds of men to considerhere: the writers themselves, who produce the stuff;and the authorities who either encourage, tolerate,censure or suppress it. I prefer to consider them inreverse order, first the regime and then the writers.URPRISING AS IT MAYSEEM, THE SOVIET REGIMETAKES LITERATURE VERYSERIOUSLY.Much more seriously, probably, than we Americanstake it. This is not because the Soviet rulers are morecivilized or more devoted to artistic values. It is because they believe that literature can be of greatservice to them if it is properly directed, but verydangerous if allowed to run wild. Stalin once rathersententiously called writers "engineers of humansouls," a dictum which his successors still take asGospel. They are engaged in building a Communistsociety. But Communism is constructed not only offactories and collective farms and space ships; it mustbe erected in the hearts of men. And it is literature'sjob to do just that. Writers are called upon to engineer and build theCommunist souls of the future. It is a very importantjob, from the regime's point of view, and it is important that it be done right. It would be terrible ifthe souls were constructed according to the wrongblueprints. The regime therefore feels that it has aresponsibility to issue clear specifications and supervise the building process pretty closely.Personally, despite my love for literature, I suspectthat the Soviet regime greatly overrates both its positive manipulative powers and its dangers. People'ssouls are pretty thoroughly engineered by experiencesmuch closer to them than literature. And as for dangers, they might well take a look at our own society.For some decades now a large part of our literary intelligentsia has been quite hostile to many aspects of oursociety and its prevailing ideology. They write andpublish their criticisms freely, but somehow the societyrolls along, carrying its seditious eggheads with it.But the Soviet regime believes that a properly controlled literature can help make people want whatthey are supposed to want and do what they are supposed to do. This may help to explain why so manyhigh Party and government officials in Russia, peoplewhom you would hardly suspect of a passion for literature, are nevertheless willing to spend so much timeand energy controlling it, and why such a man asKhrushchev himself, who hardly seems like a naturaldevotee of literature and who certainly must be fantastically busy, still finds the time to read and censorbooks, criticize them, praise them, and make speechesabout them to writers.This basic belief in the manipulative powers ofliterature and the insistence on controlling these powers have been a fundamental feature of the Sovietregime at least since Stalin's consolidation of powerin the late 1920's, and it still prevails, untouched byany thaw. It is a constant which needs to be understood before anything else about Soviet literature canbe grasped. So far the regime has shown no signswhatever of relinquishing this belief.The changes that have taken place in Soviet literature since Stalin's death, including all the thaws andfreezes, have not stemmed from any change in thisfundamental conception. They have been tacticalshifts.There are, I think, two basic reasons why the regime has periodically leaned in the direction of liberalization. For one thing, it needed simply to resuscitate the lifeless corpse of Soviet literature. Too tightcontrols sometimes defeat their own ends. If writersare shackled too closely, they may be prevented fromturning out anything bad, but they certainly cannotturn out anything good. What they tend to produceis endless copies of some officially approved model,as like one another as Fords off the assembly line. Suchwere the Soviet novels of the late 1940's and early1950's, endless moralities with virtually the same plot:boy meets girl on the assembly line; they have an uplifting romance while discovering together a new metallurgical process (or an American spy). HoweverCONTINUED ON PAGE 86 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINECHICAGO'S RUSSIANEXCHANGE STUDENTAlexi Oboukhov, a 26-year-old Ph.D. student at theUniversity of Moscow, has been at the University ofChicago since October. He is an exchange studentunder a program sponsored by the U.S. National Student Association and the Committee of Youth Organizations of the U.S.S.R. During this same period, U. ofC. student Joel Picheny, '61, is at the University ofLeningrad; Mr. Picheny is a graduate student in theDepartment of Slavic Languages and Literatures atChicago.Mr. Oboukhov, who is working on a thesis, "Theoretical Foundations of American Post War Diplomacy—The School of Realists," chose Chicago in preferenceto other U.S. universities because it offered an opportunity to study under Professor Hans Morgenthau.This autumn he took an international politics coursewith Morgenthau, and, in the winter a political theorycourse with him. He started a French for ReadingRequirements course which he dropped in order tospend more time on the 150 books on international relations he hopes to read while here. During this quarterhe is spending most of his time in the library, and inthe spring he will be taking a research course underMorgenthau's guidance.He knows Mr. Morgenthau's books well enough tonotice when the professor quotes them in class withoutgiving credit to his sources. "They are well-known inRussia in academic circles," he says, "and of course in the U.S. he is highly respected— for instance, theynever appear in paperback."Mr. Oboukhov is a native of Moscow, where hisfather is a construction engineer, building elevators.His mother is a former high school teacher, and hisbrother a surgeon. In 1955, he entered Moscow University, majoring in history, originally studying for adiploma in the Thai language. Before graduation ( theRussian "diploma" is awarded after six years of study-three years more study are necessary for the Ph.D.),he spent half a year in Thailand, studying Thai.On his return to Moscow, he was given permissionto study in the U.S. — "they were in need of suchpeople;" and he finds his new specialty much more interesting, for all its greater size and amount of data.He added to his travels and opportunities for speakingEnglish in two further trips. In Iceland, he served asan interpreter for one of the fellows sent there by theCommittee of Youth Organizations; and in Sweden,he attended a workcamp. Called the "East-WestCamp," it offered 25 people from about a dozen countries a three-week opportunity to exchange ideas, andconstruct a school for mentally retarded and handicapped children.In Chicago, he lives at International House, where heparticipates in such programs as their chess tournaments, and their annual trip to Freeport, Illinois, wherethe foreign students have an opportunity to spendThanksgiving with the families of this town. For Mr.Oboukhov, this proved a pleasant opportunity to getout in some "clean, clear air." He has also visited oneof the western suburbs of Chicago.He likes the University community— and most particularly in the spring. The people are friendly, andbefore he leaves he hopes to be able to move to anapartment for a while to better get to know some ofthe Hyde Parkers.The N.S.A.-C.Y.O. student exchange offers an opportunity for travel. During the month of June, Mr.Oboukhov plans to head for the Southwest. San Francisco is the goal: the native city of one of the mostpopular American writers in the Soviet Union and afavorite of Mr. Oboukhov, Jack London. ¦MARCH, 1963 7acceptable such formulas were to the regime as idealimages for young Communists to model themselveson, they proved sadly lacking in inspirational power.They were terribly boring. It turned out that contemporary novels of that period, however chaste politically, were not being read. Theaters performingcontemporary plays were half empty. The soul engineering machinery had ground to a halt.The regime ranted and fumed about it, blamingeveryone but itself. But until Stalin died, nothing elsewas possible. Finally in 1954, in the first thaw, it didtry raising the limits of tolerance a little. The resultwas a spectacular increase in popular interest shownin contemporary literature. People got excited aboutcurrent books as they had not done for years. Thebest sellers were not editions of the classics, as theyhad been before, but contemporary works. This waseven more true in 1956.But on the other hand, every time the regime letdown the bars a little, it discovered to its consternation that whenever literature got interesting, it alsobecame redolent of heresy. And heresy could not betolerated; heresy leads to Hungaries. There had to beanother crackdown. This veering back and forth ofthe regime between the equally unsatisfactory polesof boring orthodoxy and dangerous heresy explains agood deal about the vacillations in Soviet literarypolicy in recent years.Besides these general thaws and freezes, the regimehas also dictated particular thaws in areas where itactually wished to change the Party line. The mostimportant of these, as far as literature is concerned,is the new assessment of the Stalinist era.De-Stalinization, of course, is a subject which extends far beyond the confines of literature; it extendseven beyond the borders of Russia, since it has nowbecome a major point of contention between theRussians and the Chinese. For the Soviet writers, ithas been fraught with a great many difficulties andambiguities, partly because the official line itself hasbeen ambiguous and vague, probably reflecting realdissention among the leaders. The ambiguity is in away symbolized by the famous speech by Khrushchevto the Twentieth Party Congress in 1956, which startedthe process off. This speech was made only at the endof the Congress, when everyone thought it was allover; it was officially secret, and never published infull in Russia, though carefully leaked out; it did notwholly repudiate Stalin, but said that he had madesome serious blunders. The famous euphemism "cultof personality" or better "cult of the individual" wasborn. This was 1956. But later on the tone becamesharper. The old dictator's body was removed fromthe mausoleum. Finally, at the Twenty-second Congress in 1962 Khrushchev went even further in denouncing the crimes of his predecessor.But the situation remains full of ambiguities, andnot only for writers, of course. It is not as if there hasbeen a real change of regime. The same Party is inpower, pursuing largely the same policies; moreover,the people who run that Party were all of them closehenchmen of Stalin and therefore accessories to his crimes. How much, then, has been repudiated? Howmuch can a writer dare to criticize? And especially,if he writes not about the past but about the present,how many unpleasant features of the present can beattributed to survivals of the Stalin cult without running the danger of ascribing them to the Communistsystem itself? And even if he writes about the past,isn't there a danger that the past may be taken as anemblem of the present?These are obviously very ticklish questions, anddespite the much less fearful atmosphere of present-day Russian intellectual life, writers have mostly beenplaying it very cautiously, waiting for cues from above.The cues have been given, but they are not alwayseasy to follow. Khrushchev has apparently decided tobase his popularity and political strength on a reputation as a liberator from Stalinism, whatever his ownpast may have been. To hell with history. Certainfeatures of Stalin's rule are now officially condemned,especially the abuse of the terror; and it is now perfectly possible for any writer to speak about themopenly; Khrushchev has done so first. Thus manyanti-Stalinist works which appear so bold and so unprecedented by comparison with the literature of thepast are really not "oppositionist" at all; they are"Khrushchevist"— right on Khrushchev's line, and theyserve his purposes.This is certainly true of Evtushenko's poem "TheHeirs of Stalin." I won't say that Khrushchev orderedEvtushenko to write such a poem; nor that Evtushenkois sincere and believes what he says, though he mightpossibly say more if he were completely free. Thoughhe may not be an opportunist, his poem was extremelyopportune; and its publication in Pravda makes italmost an official document. That is why I am skeptical about the appropriateness of the term "AngryYoung Man" to describe Evtushenko. It is not sodaring to be angry at a dictator ten years dead whenyour anger is in phase with his successor's.The Solzhenitsyn piece ("One Day") is rather different. Evtushenko is a Muscovite who moves in highliterary and Party circles; he hears the latest gossipand rumors and has undoubtedly developed a certainsixth sense about what is possible and what is not.There is undoubtedly an element of careerism in himtoo. He would not like to jeopardize his very comfortable position. But I do not feel this about Solzhenitsyn. It is mostly intuition, since I have little hardevidence. But I suspect that Solzhenitsyn, hardenedby his own years in the camps, is simply an exceptionally bold and independent man who went ahead andwrote what he wanted to write the way he wanted towrite it and probably never really expected to see itpublished at all. He would leave his work for posterityto discover. But he nevertheless gave publication atry, circulated the manuscript among liberally inclinededitors; one of them, Tvardovsky, a member of theCentral Committee, apparently passed it up the hierarchy, all the way to Khrushchev. No one else couldtake the responsibility for it. It happened to suitKhrushchev's needs at the time or he thought it did,and Solzhenitsyn is now an international celebrity.8 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINETHE FIRST TIME INDECADES THERE IS SOMETHING LIKE REAL DIVERSITYIN RUSSIAN WRITING.So much for the regime's attitude and the basis ofits policy. What about the writers themselves? Howdo they affect the freezes and thaws? Actually theyare now pretty clearly divided into two parties, whichyou might call the "icemen" and the "furnace men," ormore conventionally the "conservatives" and the "liberals." The existence of these two parties is almostofficially acknowledged and obviously countenancedby the authorities, since each is allowed to control itsown organs, its magazines. For the first time in decades, there is something like real diversity in Sovietliterary life. There are real arguments, controversies,disputes. In the old days you could never tell onemagazine from another except by the name; now theyare really different.The conservatives or "icemen" are mostly peoplewho had made careers under Stalinism, accepted theold system, found it comfortable and believed in it.They endorse completely the official view that thefunction of literature and art is to preach the Party'ssermon and then preach it again. The function ofcriticism is to sniff out the slightest whiff of deviationand denounce it, to guard the faithful against heresy.The conservatives found the old system comfortablebecause it provided them with good jobs and entirely absolved them of responsibility; they never had to doany thinking for themselves. Nowadays they feel uneasy about the pluralistic tendencies that have beenappearing and they long for the old monolith. Ofcourse they do not openly praise Stalin or call for areturn to his kind of rule— their own Stalinist trainingwas too good for that— but they represent militantOrthodoxy. Khrushchev may have gone farther thanthey would like in the direction of de-Stalinization;but on the other hand they are enormously useful tohim as watchdogs, and he frequently praises them publicly and sides with them.The liberals are more varied; in fact the label isprobably too inclusive. They include at one pole thepoet Tvardovsky, editor of Novy Mir and member ofthe Central Committee— a high literary official who hasgenuine "humanizing" tendencies and tries to maneuver as much freedom as he can for writers withoutstraying too far from the Party line; at the other poleof the liberals are those clandestine writers who refuseto play the game at all. They circulate privately andeven publish their works abroad, usually anonymously.The most famous is the mysterious Mr. Tertz, authorof The Trial Begins and a fascinating essay on socialistrealism, who is probably the nearest thing to a genuine Angry Young Man in Russia. In between are theEvtushenkos, who try to ride with the system, butmaybe push it a little if the opportunity affords itself.From the purely literary point of view, the liberalsare much more important and more interesting thanthe conservatives. For one thing, they are more talentedand they have more feeling for literature as an art.Although they may openly acknowledge the officialrole of literature as a builder of Communist souls, thebetter ones know instinctively as artists that theymust explore and experiment; they need elbow room.They may want to explore the human psyche to adepth still prohibited; they may want to operate fromphilosophical premises other than ones according towhich a man's worth is measured by his usefulness tothe Party and the state; they may want to experimentwith new artistic forms and perhaps complicate themso much that they would not be readily accessible tomass readers— also taboo; finally, they might even wantto suggest that there might be other goals for Russiansociety than Communism.None of this is of course permitted; nor will it be.The conservative watchdogs are there to sniff out thedissidence, and the authorities can put on the pressureif needed. On the other hand the liberals are also usefulto the system. They liven things up, and as long astheir criticisms are constructive they can be used; andthe liberals may serve as spokesmen of shifts in theParty line.Thus the regime now has thaw and freeze mechanisms operating openly together at the same time. Itcan play the referee, mark out the boundary lines,and utilize whatever it needs from either side.It is a rather clever solution; and it has certainlymade recent Soviet literature vastly more interestingthan it has been for a long time. But it is still a longway from freedom. ¦MARCH, 1963 9Massachusetts Mutual Home OfficeChicago men in good companyAsk any alumnus who's a Massachusetts Mutualpolicyholder.

Simoson, C.L.U., Niagara Falls10 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINENEWS'OF the quadranglesLAW DEAN— Phil Caldwell Neal, anauthority on constitutional law, hasbeen appointed dean of the Law Schoolof the University.Mr. Neal, 43, who was a member ofthe law faculty at Stanford Universityfor 13 years, joined the University ofChicago Law School as a professor ayear ago. He succeeds Edward HirschLevi, who has headed the school since1950. Mr. Levi became provost of theUniversity in April, 1962. Mr. Neal,who will head a faculty of 35 and astudent body of 425, becomes the sixthdean in the history of the Law School,which was founded in 1902.Mr. Neal was born in Chicago andgrew up in Oak Park, Illinois, a western suburb. He holds both his bachelorand his law degrees from Harvard University. In addition to constitutionallaw, he has concentrated in the fields ofanti-trust and administrative law.Currently, he is serving as executivesecretary for the Co-ordinating Committee for Multiple Litigation of theUnited States District Courts. The Committee is concerned with the proceduresin almost 2,000 civil cases growing outof anti-trust actions in the electrical industry. He also is one of eight legalscholars who have been appointed by a Congressional Commission to write ahistory of the United States SupremeCourt.In announcing the appointment,President Beadle said:"Since its beginnings sixty years ago,the Law School has brought together arigorous professional education with themost thoughtful scholarly inquiry andthe most imaginative research."Under Dean Levi, this tradition hasbeen greatly enriched. The faculty hasbeen enlarged, diversified, andstrengthened, and its research contributions widened. The student body hasgrown within the limitations necessaryfor the University's standards of excellence. A magnificent law center hasbeen erected for the school. Closer relationships have been established withthe bar and the bench which havebrought the American Bar Associationheadquarters to the Midway and actualcourtroom deliberations to the school."Professor Neal takes over one ofthe nation's top-ranking law schools.He has the wide-ranging intellectualqualities, the credentials of scholarlyand professional excellence and thecapacity for leadership that will createa record of new achievements for theLaw School."Neal's most recent article appears inthe 1962 issue of the Supreme CourtReview, published by The University ofChicago Press, entitled "Baker v. Carr:Politics in Search of Law." In a criticalexamination of the United States Supreme Court decision in the so-calledTennessee Reapportionment Case, Neal suggests that the courts have been ledto move too hastily into a field fraughtwith grave difficulties from the standpoint of proper observance of thelimitations on judicial power."It has been said that the decision inBaker v. Carr is 'a great example of therule of law in our society.' As a prediction that legislatures will bow to judicial decrees the statement may be prophetic. If it means more than that itmust be disputed. Law makes demandson courts as well as on legislatures. Until the Supreme Court can provide amore satisfying explanation of the authority and principles by which courtsdecree reapportionment than it or thelower courts have yet given, the casewill serve better as an example of therole of fiat in the exercise of judicialpower," he wrote.Mr. Neal received his A.B. (summacum laude) from Harvard Universityin 1940 and his L.L.B. (magna cumlaude) in 1943 from Harvard LawSchool. He was elected to Phi BetaKappa while an undergraduate. He alsowas president of the Student Counciland president of the Harvard LawReview.It was while he was on the staff ofthe Harvard Law Review that Mr. Nealmet Miss Mary Cassidy, who was tobecome his wife. The future Mrs. Nealwas secretary of the Law Review.After graduation from Harvard LawSchool, Mr. Neal served for two yearsas Law Clerk to Justice Robert Jacksonof the United States Supreme Court inWashington, D.C.MARCH, 1963 11In 1945, he served briefly with theUnited States State Department where,under the auspices of the InternationalConference of Jurists, he was a memberof a secretariat which helped draft aproposed plan for a new InternationalCourt of Justice. He also was a memberof the International Secretariat at theNEALconference in San Francisco which established the United Nations in 1945.From 1945 to 1948, Mr. Neal was indie private practice of law in San Francisco, first briefly with the law firm ofDerby, Sharp, Quinby and Tweedt, andthen with the law firm of Pillsbury,Madison and Sutro. In 1948, he joinedthe faculty of the law school of Stanford University as an associate professor. He was named professor of lawin 1952.During the Korean conflict, from1950 to 1951, Neal was chairman ofthe Pacific Regional Enforcement Commission under the Wage StabilizationBoard which heard and ruled oncharges of violations of the Wage Stabilization law.Although Mr. Neal himself did notattend the University of Chicago as astudent, two brothers and a sister did.Both of his brothers, Dr. William B.Neal, now in Los Angeles, and Dr.Richard H. Neal, of Oak Park, receivedtheir undergraduate and medical training at the University of Chicago. Bothare practicing physicians. Mr. Neal'ssister, Mrs. Moore Peregrine of RiverForest, Illinois, received an M.A. fromthe University of Chicago.Mr. Neal is writing Volume V of a multi-volume history of the UnitedStates Supreme Court. The project wasestablished by an Act of Congress creating a "permanent committee for theOliver Wendell Holmes Devise (bequest)," utilizing funds left in a bequestby the late Justice Holmes. Mr. Neal'ssection deals with the period from 1888to 1910, when Melville Weston Fuller,of Illinois, was Chief Justice of theCourt.As executive secretary for the Coordinating Committee for Multiple Litigation of the United States DistrictCourts, Mr. Neal is assisting in the coordination of all pre-trial motions andother litigation covering 1,962 civilactions pending before 33 judges ofUnited States District Courts in 33 federal districts against 30 electrical firms.These actions grew out of criminalindictments for anti-trust activities several years ago.TOOLS OF CHEMISTRY— Advanced research instruments will beavailable to undergraduate chemistrystudents while faculty members probethe unknown with new nuclear machines because of two grants totalingmore than $65,000. Infrared spectrometers, a spectrophotometer, X-raydefraction equipment, a refractometerand several other advanced pieces ofchemistry equipment will be purchasedfor use in undergraduate laboratoriesand classrooms under a grant from theNational Science Foundation.These instruments will improve thequality of laboratory chemistry coursesas well as offer unique research opportunities to undergraduate students, according to Norman Nachtrieb, chairman of the Department of Chemistryand professor of the Institute for theStudy of Metals.GEOPHYSICS CHAIRMAN — Julian R. Goldsmith, professor of geochemistry, has been named chairmanof the Department of the GeophysicalSciences. He succeeds Sverre Petterssen,professor of meteorology, who will devote full time to research and teaching.Mr. Goldsmith, who is associatedean of the Division of the PhysicalSciences, served as associate chairmanof the Department of GeophysicalSciences from July, 1961 to January,1962. He then became acting dean of the Division of the Physical Sciencesand served until July, 1962. The chairmanship of the Department of Geophysical Sciences is a three-year appointment.Mr. Goldsmith's research on thechemical and physical structure of materials in the earth's crust has led toinformation about the conditions underwhich the earth's crust was formed andthe behavior of these materials at hightemperatures and pressures.OPINIONS IN GENEVA— TwoUniversity professors submitted papersto the United Nations Conference onthe Applications of Science and Technology for the Benefit of the Less Developed Areas, held in Geneva, Switzerland, in February.Philip M. Hauser, chairman of theDepartment of Sociology, presented astudy in which he asserted that "rapidpopulation growth serves as a majorobstacle to economic development inthe less developed areas of the world."Mr. Hauser, a noted demographer, hasbeen acting director of the UnitedStates Bureau of the Census, and hasserved as a United States representativeto the populations commission of theUnited Nations. In January, he returnedfrom a three-month Ford Foundationmission in 12 nations, concerning population projects in Southeast Asia.Mr. Hauser added that three otherfactors also serve to retard economicprogress in the less developed areas:"Unfavorable age structure, unbalancedpopulation distribution and inadequately educated and trained manpower." He said all these deterrents canbe overcome "by the same means —namely, through a decrease in the birthrate."However, he warned: "A decrease inbirth rate seems a simple enough solution. But it is not easy of attainment.The hard fact is that in most of the lessdeveloped areas there is neither incentive nor motivation for regulating family size. Moreover, it is not clear thatthe techniques for controlling fertilityare as yet available which can be employed effectively in these areas."As a measure of the benefits of population control, Mr. Hauser estimated,"A decrease in world populationgrowth to one-half of one per centper year, the rate actually experiencedbetween 1800 and 1850, would dimin-12 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEish the task of raising the aggregateproduct of goods and services for theentire world by some 75 to 80 percent."According to the United Nations estimates, the world's population is expected to increase at a rate of 1.8 percent annually from 1950 to the year2000.Bert F. Hoselitz, professor in theDivision of Social Sciences, submitted apaper to the conference on "The Entrepreneurial Element in Economic Development." He did not appear in person at the conference.In his paper, Mr. Hoselitz suggestedthat the development of successful private business communities in the newnations of Asia and Africa will belargely' dependent on the small andmedium sized firms which played animportant part in the economic development of the more highly developednations.Private, as opposed to public, industrialization "must be thought of in thenext two or three decades not in termsof new Pittsburghs or Birminghams inthe developing nations of Africa andAsia but rather as a process in whichsmall capital is allocated in various industrial and commercial fields."Although these units may increase in size, they will remain, from a worldpoint of view, fairly small, or at bestmedium size, in their fields of economicactivity. The reason for this stems fromthe very different relative supply oflabor and capital, and particularly fromthe fact that capital to be invested ona long term basis is in very short supplyand often unavailable through the ordinary channels."In other words, banks will rationcredit to small entrepreneurs who wishto grow rapidly. Many enterprises mayhave to begin with meager capital fundsand grow only to the extent to whichthey can reinvest their profits."Basic to any nation's plan for a private commerce and industry is "a legalorder (providing) the necessary accommodation for the needs and protection of entrepreneurial activity. Accommodation must include not only thepromulgation of a neutral system oflaws, but also the shaping of institutions through which entrepreneurs canexert pressure on actions of the stateand especially upon legislation."In the change, entrepreneurial performance may rise to a level where itcan provide not wealth alone but alsosocial status and some form of politicalinfluence."Success in private business and in dustry implies, Mr. Hoselitz argues,"the exercise of leadership, maturity ofcharacter, a sense of security and knowledge of, or familiarity with, the skillsrelated to the entrepreneur's undertakings."EDUCATION APPOINTMENTS—Francis V. Lloyd, Jr., superintendentof schools in Clayton, Missouri, hasbeen appointed director of pre-colle-giate education at the University. Hewill take charge of the University'slaboratory schools on July 1, succeeding Roy A. Larmee, who resigned twoyears ago to devote full time to study.During these two years careful studyhas been given to the future course ofthe laboratory schools. Francis S. Chase,dean of the Graduate School of Education and professor and chairman of theDepartment of Education said, "Weare moving — and Mr. Lloyd's appointment is part of the pattern — to revivethe experimental attitudes, to stimulateincreased creativity on the part of thefaculties and to focus efforts on waysof breaking through the artificial ceilings imposed on learning by culturalconditions and the ways in whichschools are organized and taught."Mr. Lloyd has held the Clayton posi-An international campaign to raise $250,000 for the restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright's famed Robie House waslaunched this February. The house, a monument to the revolution that Wright brought to modern architecture, is nowempty. A committee of more than one hundred persons,including prominent architects, has been formed to raise thefunds to restore the structure. Major repairs are needed andthe committee also seeks to restore the perceptive detail ofthe original blueprints.Built in 1909, Robie House has become known as the best example of Wright's Prairie Houses. A residence until 1926,it was then sold to Chicago Theological Seminary. In 1957,after plans had been announced that it would be razed,Webb & Knapp purchased Robie House and used it as itsconstruction headquarters during Hyde Park urban renewal.The deed to Robie House has now been presented to theUniversity of Chicago by Webb & Knapp. In agreeing totake title, the University will use and maintain it for educational purposes. A portion of the house will be open to thepublic at specified times.MARCH, 1963 13tion since 1957.

Heearned a nationwide reputation forhis innovations while superintendentat Clayton. He organized a summer institute offering advanced work for ablesecondary students, instituted teachingFrench to all children from the thirdthrough the sixth grades, revised thehigh school curriculum, introduced newmethods of teaching mathematics inthe lower grades and set up a juniorhigh school system.— Dan C. Lortie, an authority on thesociological and psychological aspectsof teaching, will join the faculty ofthe Graduate School of Education onJune 17 as associate professor. Mr.Lortie, who is now on the faculty atHarvard University, will teach coursesin education and educational administration, emphasizing the sociological-psychological aspects of teaching andadministration. He will also work withthe Midwest Administration Center ofthe Graduate School of Education.CHEMISTRY VISITING PROF.—Melvin S. Newman, professor of chemistry and chairman of the Division ofOrganic Chemistry at Ohio State University, has been appointed Morris S.Kharasch Visiting Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the Universityof Chicago for 1962-1963. He is anauthority on synthetic organic chemistry, the structure of natural products,and stereochemistry which deals withthe configuration and conformation ofmolecules.Many of Mr. Newman's contributions in chemistry have strong implications and applications in the biologicalsciences. He was awarded the I960Synthetic Chemistry Award of theAmerican Chemical Society and is amember of the National Academy ofSciences.Mr. Newman is the third Morris S.Kharasch Visiting Professor. The Morris S. Kharasch Visiting Professorshipwas established in 1959 in memory ofthe University of Chicago scientist whodied in 1957. Pioneering in new areasof organic chemistry, Mr. Kharaschproduced seed disinfectants that have saved millions of dollars for farmers,and pharmaceuticals including the antiseptic merthiolate.FLYING CARPET COURSE —Members of the faculty of the University are conducting a "flying carpet"course in the Civilizations of SouthAsia for three colleges in the Philadelphia area. Milton Singer, Paul KlapperProfessor of Social Science in the College and the Department of Anthropology, flew to Philadelphia on February 14 to teach the first class of thecourse. Each week other faculty members fly to Philadelphia to present various aspects of the project.The course is being offered toSwarthmore, Bryn Mawr and Haver-ford Colleges. Some 100 students and1 5 faculty members from the three colleges are participating in the one-semester course which is being conducted at Haverford. Other facultymembers participating are: J.A.B. vanBuitenan, associate professor of Sanskrit; George V. Bobrinskoy, professorand chairman of the Department ofLinguistics; Edward C. Dimock, associate professor of Bengali and Bengaliliterature; Stephen N. Hay, assistantprofessor of history; Bert Hoselitz,professor of social sciences; McKimMarriott, associate professor of anthropology and the social sciences in theCollege.GOOD NEWS— The old songs 'TheBest Things in Life are Free," "Luckyin Love," and "The Varsity Drag"were heard in Mandel Hall duringFebruary when University Theatre revived "Good News," a musical fromthe 20 's. First seen on Broadway in1927, the show is a satire on Americancollege life during the roaring 20's.THEOLOGY PROFESSOR — Lang-don B. Gilkey, an authority on systematic theology, has been appointed tothe faculty of the Divinity School effective July; 1963. He will hold the position of professor of systematic theology.Mr. Gilkey is the son of Charles W. Gilkey, dean emeritus of RockefellerMemorial Chapel on campus. LangdonGilkey is now professor and chairmanof the Department of Theology in theDivinity School of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. He joinedthe Vanderbilt faculty in 1954. Previously he had been a lecturer at VassarCollege (1951 to 1954), a researchFellow under a Fulbright Scholarshipat Cambridge University, England,(1950 to 1951), and instructor at Union Theological Seminary, New York(1949 to 1950).During World War II, Mr. Gilkeywas an inmate of a Japanese concentration camp from 1943 to 1945. Hetaught at Yencheng University in Peking, China from 1940 to 1943. Hehad received his bachelor of arts degreefrom Harvard University in 1940 andPh.D. from Columbia University andUnion Theological Seminary — a jointdegree — in 1954.He is the author of Maker of Heavenand Earth (Doubleday, 1959).WORK WITH AGED— The Schoolof Social Service Administration is embarking on a three-year education program with Drexel Home, Incorporated,to provide field experience for socialwork students. Drexel Home, an agencyof the Jewish Federation of Chicago,provides care for older persons, manyof whom are chronically ill.Alton A. Linford, SSA dean, observes: "The nation's aged have increased 35 per cent during the decadeof the 1950's, a growth rate almosttwice that of the nation as a whole.With this program we hope to contribute to the understanding of theproblems and needs of older persons,as well as increase the supply of personnel available to serve them."The project will operate on a budgetof $80,000, of which $22,500 is beingprovided by a grant from the WieboldtFoundation, $22,500 from the Projecton the Aged of the American PublicWelfare Association, and the remainderby the School of Social Service Administration and the Drexel Home. Theprogram will provide field experiencefor six students per year under thedirection of a full-time faculty personwho will have the title of field workassistant professor.14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEON FEBRUARY 6, UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BEADLE ADDRESSED THE CHICAGO ASSOCIATION OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRYAT ITS ANNUAL MEETING. COMMENTING ON THE MORE THAN 70YEARS IN WHICH THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO HAS BEENRESPECTED AS A CENTER FOR SCHOLARS AND A PRODUCER OFKNOWLEDGE, HE NOTED THAT NEW KNOWLEDGE IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE FOR ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL ADVANCE IN THENATIONS OF THE WORLD. HERE ARE EXCERPTS FROM HIS SPEECH:Our interest in research at the University of Chicago ranges from our investigators in the EnricoFermi Institute for Nuclear Studies to the OrientalInstitute, from our Department of GeophysicalSciences, including satellite meteorology, to the Argonne National Laboratory, which the University operates for the Atomic Energy Commission. Last year,research and development contracts held by theUniversity of Chicago, both on and off campus,totalled some $87,000,000 in expenditures. These contributed in a large way toward making the University the fourteenth largest employer in the city, withsome 7,500 persons on our payrolls. In addition, thereis a staff of 1,000 scientists and engineers, plus 3,500supporting personnel, at Argonne's sites southwest ofChicago and in central Idaho. These men andwomen are among the highest level workers in theChicago complex — highest level, that is, in terms ofintelligence and in terms of prestige productivity.Chicago needs more men and women like them if itsresearch and development are to prosper as theyshould. We can't do much about our atmosphericclimate, but we can about our intellectual climate.We can, and must, work much harder to improveour schools, libraries, public services, and generalorientation, if we are to lure and to keep the promising young men arid women of our time, in this area.There is every indication that research activity onour campus and at Argonne will expand greatly inthe years immediately ahead. To prepare for thisresearch growth, we are working on immediate expenditures of some $41 millions for new buildingsand facilities on our Hyde Park campus. For example, in a few months we will break ground for a NASA-financed, interdisciplinary space research center.At Argonne, under the direction of Albert Crewe, aforty-eight-million dollar atom smasher, more formally known as the Zero Gradient Proton Synchrotron, will be completed this year. This will cost sometwenty million dollars a year to operate. Before itwas planned, nuclear scientists moved to the Eastor West Coasts to find such equipment. It is nowkeeping more of them in this area and helping tolure others here. Other research news also is beingmade at Argonne: scientists and engineers there aresupporting the nuclear energy phase of the nation'sspace effort and they are designing new and moresophisticated power reactors.Meanwhile, on the main campus, some 280 members of our faculty are pursuing research spelled outin 516 federal agency grants totalling $23.5 millionsannually.Now, for a few further observations . . .Many have been troubled by government supportof academic institutions. There may be reason to bediscouraged in particular instances, but all of us mustrecognize that this is a way of life that is here tostay. It is here to stay because academic institutions— and indeed, industry, as in the case of space exploration — cannot possibly go on without large-scalegovernment support. If we are intelligent enough,we need have no fear of it.Government support will continue and will alsosurely increase. In fiscal 1963, Washington expectsto obligate Some fifteen billion dollars for researchand development — sixteen times the amount available fifteen years ago. Research is indeed a growthbusiness. And, as more industrial leaders becomeconvinced of the wisdom of investing in researchand development, the growth curve will shoot upeven faster. Ours is more than the Space Age: it isan era in which human knowledge is expanding atan unprecedented rate and in which the. frontiersBASIC & APPLIED RESEARCHIN THE MIDWESTA REPORT ON REMARKS BY PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BEADLE ATTHE 59TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CHICAGO ASSOCIATIONOF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRYMARCH, 1963 15are in ideas and applications, not so much in landor in rivers.It is not too late for the Middle West to developan intensive effort to achieve a capability in spaceage industry. Our universities, by and large, arecarrying much of the burden in the pioneering work.Look at the research accomplishments of Iowa's VanAllen, Northwestern's Hynek, Illinois' Seitz, and Chicago's John Simpson. The business community mustre-orient itself from the view that one engineer is employed to make 1,000 products, to the philosophy thatit might take 1,000 engineers to produce a complex,miniaturized moon probe. The talent is here. Whenthe University of Chicago sought help for our seriesof satellite experiments, the winners in a competitive bid for miniaturized parts turned out to be asmall, unorthodox company in suburban Bensenville— Paraplegics, Inc. In overcoming the handicaps ofits workers to respond to the challenge of space, thatimaginative and risk-taking company is setting anexample for many larger and more conservativefirms.The Big Ten and the University of Chicago togetherproduce 26 per cent of the national total of Ph.D.s inthe physical sciences and 33% of those in the biological sciences, not counting medicine or dentistry. So itis evident that we turn out highly trained men andwomen who would consider going into industry here,if the opportunities were available. The results ofbasic research at the University of Chicago are available to Middle West industry as they are to industryelsewhere. The doors of Argonne and the Universityalways are open to industrial leaders interested inthe frontier of ideas and research.We must all do everything possible to improve intercommunications among industry, government, andacademic institutions. In this effort, academic institutions — IIT, Northwestern, University of Illinois, University of Chicago, and others — have everything togain by working together. Each of us prospers bestwhen all are strong. ¦ THE FEDE& HIGHEA REPORT ON A SPETO PRESIDENT BEADTHE UNIVERSITYJOHN T. WILSON JOINED THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO STAFF IN1962. HE IS FORMER ASSISTANT DIRECTOR FOR BIOLOGICAL ANDMEDICAL SCIENCES OF THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION-THEGOVERNMENT AGENCY ESTABLISHED IN 1950 BY ACT OF CONGRESSTO SUPPORT BASIC SCIENCE AND SCIENCE EDUCATION IN THE U.S.HE HAS ALSO SERVED ON THE STAFF OF THE OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH, BEEN ASSISTANT EXECUTIVE SECRETARY OF THE AMERICANPSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION, AND A MEMBER OF THE PSYCHOLOGY FACULTY AT GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.IN A SPEECH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, BOULDER, THISFEBRUARY, MR. WILSON POINTED OUT THAT 1963 IS A POLITICALSWING YEAR AND AN "OPPORTUNITY FOR FEDERAL LEGISLATIONAND EXECUTIVE ACTION TO STRENGTHEN HIGHER EDUCATION MOREGOLDEN THAN IT WILL BE AGAIN FOR SOME TIME TO COME."In his prepared address, Mr. Wilson proposed:1. Educators recognize the need for federal assistanceto higher education, for which there is a long andhonorable history, and actively participate in formulating programs and their objectives.2. Educators help develop new program conceptsaimed at broadening the support base, in order toassist colleges and universities not now in the toprank to achieve their fullest potential.3. Educators insist that government assistance bebroad and include the humanities and the arts aswell as science, if higher education is to be strong.4. Educators support a federal scholarship programthat will help economically deprived but talentedstudents to go to college.5. That there should be a reorganization of federalagencies at present involved in educational programs. Responsibilities of the Office of Educationand the National Science Foundation should be reassigned to give the former responsibility for elementary and secondary education and the latter forhigher and graduate education, including science.Mr. Wilson also made these observations:( REGARDING SCIENCE SUPPORT PROGRAMS—"An important facet of the existing situation that16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEAL GOVERNMENTEDUCATIONBY JOHN T. WILSON, SPECIAL ASSISTANTAMD PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY ATshould command attention and study by those responsible for higher education is the complex ofscience support programs . . ."The average college and university president hasbeen satisfied to worry about other problems and towatch Federal research funds roll in . . ."As funds become increasingly available and aspressures for the creation of new 'centers of excellence' grow, there is a need for new program concepts, in order to assist in more meaningful ways institutions in the 'second ten' or 'second twenty' or inthe 'small college' group."In the absence of new program concepts there isa tendency to apply other than quality criteria in thesubvention of research and science education programs. With this attempt to satisfy different andfrequently conflicting aims, more and more lowerquality institutions and people are being supportedvia research and training grants, in the hope thatfunds so given will 'do something for the school' or'stimulate research and graduate level training.'"The most serious aspect of government-universityrelationships as they are reflected in current supportprograms lies in the limited scope of these programs . . ."The time is at hand for the recognition on the partof government that science and non-science aspectsof universities are inseparable components of an institution of higher learning."That there is something more in a university thanscholarship in science and engineering is the fundamental differentiating factor between a universityand a technological institute."If we are not to change the character of our institutions of higher learning to that of high gradetechnological institutes, it is increasingly clear thatthere must be more nourishment for fields of scholarship other than science."REGARDING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT SUPPORT — "There is a convincing accumulation of evi dence of the need for a federal scholarship program;there are many college-age youngsters who shouldbe going on to higher education who, for economicreasons, are not doing so."Any program devised should be aimed at reaching this group and therefore should probably entaila 'means' test with an 'income and asset' criterionabove which assistance would not be granted; sucha 'means' test would protect existing scholarshipprograms that otherwise would be supplanted if nosuch test were applied."Administrative and political considerations mayfavor the use of State Commissions to administersuch a program over administration by colleges; aconsideration here is that NDEA loans are alreadyadministered through colleges and universities; StateCommissions would thus spread the administrativeburden; administrative considerations, however,should not get in the way of substantive issues."Of available formula for distribution, one tied tocollege-age population or to graduating class population is preferable to one tied to already enrolledcollege students; thus financial opportunity wouldbe increased to a greater extent where college-goingis lowest and need greatest . . ."Recipients of assistance should be free to attendthe college of choice, although there is an interestingand debatable issue as to whether awards might notwell be limited to institutions within the state of residence of the recipient; to do so would have someadvantage in raising the level of undergraduate institutions geographically and might also be tied tomatching state funds to increase the size of theprogram."REGARDING REORGANIZATION OF FEDERALEDUCATION AGENCIES— "For a solution to thisproblem, there is something to be said for considering a reorganization of existing agencies which mightbe accomplished through Executive Order rather thanby attempting legislatively to create anew agency."One, not too drastic possibility, would be to remove from OE, its present higher education functionsand add these to the NSF, thus broadening the Letter's responsibilities to encompass higher educationincluding science."Concomitantly, activities now engaged in by NSFand others that are at levels below higher educationmight be moved to OE, thus concentrating in the NSFthose functions relating to higher and graduate education, and in OE those relating to pre-collegiateeducation."Specialized and mission-related programs aboutthe secondary school level could remain in theirpresent homes."In the more distant future, one could imaginewithout too much difficulty joining the SmithsonianInstitution with its interests in the arts as well as thesciences, to a modified NSF, thus eventually combining in one agency, science and non-science areasof higher education, and the arts."By such an evolutionary process a higher educational and cultural agency within the Federal government could emerge." ¦MARCH, 1963 17CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1forms, the dropping of football, andWorld War II — it is no mean testimonial that Carl Beck is rememberedwith universal affection.This brings us to Howard, whosetenure missed matching Carl Beck'sby only five months, whose objectiverecord of achievement will stand uphandsomely under any scrutiny, andwhose friends and admirers are legion.These last include his successor.If it seems odd that one so youngshould want to detail so much history,let us come to the point. Those of uswho "direct" alumni associations livedaily with the distilled history of theUniversity — distilled in the thousandsof sovereign individuals who are thealumni. Most of those with whom eachsucceeding man worked are still part oftoday's alumni body.For the objective data of the AlumniAssociation — how many members, howmany donors, the proportion of eachamong the 61,000 alumni — are all, intruth, a bit phony. Our concern is withpeople, not statistics.Ideally, our job is to nudge eachalumnus into becoming a patron oflearning; but we mean "patron" in theold sense of the word, one who bothparticipates in and supports the intellectual discoveries of his time. Or, toput it another way, one who supportsnot because he is begged, but becausehe believes in the importance of a wellhoned intellect and he values the chancea university gives him to keep sharingin scholarly discoveries long after hisdegree-hunting days are past.Such a relationship cannot be turnedon one year and flicked off the next.Like a maiden's reputation, it takesyears to create but can be destroyed withone thoughtless act.Thus the man who sits in the chairso lately vacated by Howard Mortactually draws each day on the meritaccumulated by him and each of hispredecessors. For quite a while, at least,his so-called gains are really their gains.Only his mistakes are his own.Being conscious of all this, the newman has only one modest change toannounce just now. The title "MemoPad," which has graced this page forsome years, seems to us to belong toHoward rather than the Magazine.

He was tired of beingtransferred from one city to another, and of havinghis quota raised every time he won a contest. Basically, he was fed up with having the Company tell himwhere he would live and how much he could makefrom one year to the next.So in 1961 Gordon Hay joined a general agency ofNew England Life in Worcester, Massachusetts,an area he was familiar with and liked. Six weekslater he had sold a quarter-million dollars of life insurance. Just recently he was named to New England Life's Hall of Fame and Leaders Association.At long last he, his wife and three children havebeen able to put down roots.
