LettersMORE ON VILLA JONESShould the Magazine err in fact orinnuendo, this space is available so thatreaders may correct us in their ownwords.In a récent point of dispute, how-ever, time and circumstances hâve soconspired that the issue could be be-fogged by our usual policy of lettingdisputants speak for themselves.In question is a single sentence inour March 1963 story on "Villa Jones,"the intercultural center in Mexico Cityoperated by Robert Cuba Jones, '40.We quoted this sentence from a letterof Norval W. Rindfleisch, '57, AM'58:"Each Tuesday night there is an intercultural exchange program in whichAmericans speaking bad Spanish converse with lower-middle to middleclass ambitious young Mexicans speaking bad English."To this, heated exception was takenin two letters published in the May-June issue. Unfortunately, this criti-cism tends to devolve not only on Mr.Rindfleisch, but also on the culturalexchange program of the PomfretSchool, where he teaches.For the record, we think it shouldbe stated:First, that Mr. Rindfleisch was notknowingly writing for publication. Theoffending sentence was part of an informai letter which had been solicitedby the editor of the Magazine as background information about Villa Jones.Second, that the original context ofthe sentence was good-humored and inno sensé péjorative.Third, that Mr. Rindfleisch was notventuring an off-the-euff judgment ofsocial classes; he was, by his own ac-count, echoing Mr. Jones' judgment insaying "lower-middle to middle class."Fourth, that Mr. Rindfleisch had noopportunity to exercise editorial judgment on the choice of material quotedfrom his letter.We think the worst sin involvedhère is ambiguity. But this fault, if itis a fault, would be better ascribed tothe Magazine than to Mr. Rindfleisch.We, not he, controlled the choice andthe published context of the sentencein question. — H.R.H.

With mostalumni, as normally with currentstudents, non-football is a rathertired issue.Yet it has probably never ceasedto be a subject capable of arousingU. of C. feelings throughout thèsepast 24 years. If ever there weredoubts about that, the emotionalspree of Nov. 8 must surely bavedispelled them.We had best review the facts.For the past seven or eight years,a elass in football has been offeredas part of the organized physicaléducation program available to students. The class is a lineal descendent of the intramural league whichthe Burton-Judson houses once sus-tained. Since the démise of the B-Jleague, the class has been the onlymédium through which a studentcould play regular (as opposed totouch) football on the campus.The class has played at least onescrimmage with a non-Universityteam each year since the start. Inthe past two years, it has playedfour serimmages each autumn withjunior varsity teams from Chicago-area collèges. In ail of this year'sserimmages, game conditions hâvebeen observed; i.e., time has beenkept, penalties called, and scoresannounced. The Chicago playershâve been suited in the uniformsused by the varsity of 1939.Thèse circumstances hâve giventhe serimmages ail the visible ap-pearances of formai games playedby a formai team, giving rise to ahost of local jokes about the football "class" or, better yet, the "non-games" played by the "non-team."Jokes aside, the différence be-tween a class and a team is notmerely semantic. In the case offootball, it is presumed that formaiaction of the Trustées would be re-quired to create a University team—not because this is a normal procédure, but because the last officiaiaction of record concerning footballwas the 1939 Trustée resolutiondropping the sport. Only the Trustées can change their own action. LOWER YOUR COSTSIMPROVED METHODSEMPLOYEE TRAININGWAGE INCENTIVESJOB EVALUATIONPERSONNEL PROCEDURESROBERT B. SHAPIRO, '33, FOUNDERThe activities of the footballclass/team/group hâve, at any rate,disquieted some students. Somehâve alleged a plot by the Administration to restore varsity football.The Stagg Scholarships are takenby some as évidence of such a plot.(We cannot resist commentingthat if the Administration is plot-ting, it needs a course in plotsman-ship. We hâve never heard of a plotbeing conducted so publicly. It isvery hard, both practically andsemantically, to hâve a plot with-out secrecy.)Those who crédit this notion ap-parently believed they had foundproof of their suspicions when itwas announced that the Nov. 8scrimmage with North Central Collège, originally scheduled for itsfield in Naperville, had been movedto Stagg Field for the convenieneeof the Columbia Broadcasting System. Walter Cronkite had askedpermission to film portions of thescrimmage for his news program,and TV caméras were more easilyset up in Stagg Field than in Naperville.There then rapidly followed aséries of events which got out ofhand. A group of students, ail ofwhom are members of Student Government (but who were acting asindividuals), hurriedly organized aprotest. Others organized counter-protests. By half an hour beforegametime, about 1,000 studentswere demonstrating pro and con onthe perimeters of the playing field.Perhaps 600 shortly marchedonto the field itself ; of thèse, about200 formed a seated line the full4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 1963width of the 50-yard line. A contestof placards and cbeers, pro and con,ensued.At this point the démonstrationhad aetually passed ont of the handsof its original organizers, who hadnot planned a sit-in and had no intention of interfering with the play-ing of the game itself. A différentgroup, numbering perhaps 30 to50, was responsible.Thèse held — or, more properly,sat— firm, through a 90-minute succession of conférences and appeals,until Dean of Students Warner A.Wick finally called for police assistance in clearing the field. Most ofthose remaining then retired, threedemonstrators being removed viapaddy wagon. (They and a fourthstudent made to join them for interfering with the paddy wagon'sexit were released immediately,without charges and without theirnames being taken, at Mr. Wick'srequest.) An abbreviated scrimmage was finally played, with theMaroons losing, 7-6.If anyone around The Universitywas happy about ail this, he waslonely. The Student Governmentresolved regret and the Maroon edi-torialized disapproval. Varionsstatements testified that for once,there was practically unanimousagreement — displeasure — over anevent in The University.We are not gifted with clairvoyance and do not know whether varsity football will ever return to theMidway. We do know that the Administration, despite the commontendency to view it as a monolithicentity, on this issue comprises anumber of people with differingopinions. Some would like to seean amateur varsity football team atChicago again and others wouldnot. Still others don't care one wayor the other about a team per se,but are négative on the ground thatany action on football is an unneces-sary way of asking for trouble. Noone, as far as we know, wants a pro-fessionalized, "big time" footballteam.There is hère a point of substancewhich has somehow dropped fromsight in ail the football discussionsof late. It seems to be assumed thatthe choice, ultimately, is between Frustrated stance of Chicago team member, foreground, expressesthe feeling of players. Demonstrators sit on 50-yard line. FormerChancellor Hurchins, in Chicago by coïncidence, reportedly com-mented when questioned that he had other things with which tooccupy himself right now.The man whose coming unwittingly triggered the démonstration— a CBS cameraman for the Walter Cronkite TV news program —waits for some football to be played.DECEMBER, 1963 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEno football and "big time" football.But this overlooks the historicaltacts.The University of Chicago neverhad a "big time" team in today'snicaning of the term. It won itsmany Western Conférence cham-pionships in the days before blatantprofessionalism in collège sports.Amos Alonzo Stagg is the reasonChicago never had paid teams.Président Harper's instructions in1892 were perfectly clear— Chicagoteams were to be for sport, "notfor the spectacular entertainment ofenormous crowds"— and the GrandOld Vlan never wavered an inchfrom that policy.Today, 30 years later, it is notsurprising that this is not instantlyrealized by ail who would discussU. of C. football. But everyone whoever knew the Grand Old Man in40 seasons of Big Ten compétitionknew it.The idea that Mr. Stagg wouldpermit the use of his name on ascholarsbip meant to sneak afhleticprofessionalism into The Universityis a profound insuit to a gentlemanwhose life is— without exaggeration—still this nation's best syinbol offine amateur athletics,The décision of 1939, howevermuch disputed, had the stated pur-pose of preserving the Chicago ath-letic tradition of unalloyed ama-teurism.The proposition that amateurfootball should be restored as avarsity sport is, we well realize,highly debatable. Some hâve strongfeelings on the question. We,frankly, do not. We could only getexercised about football if wethought there were any reasonablepossibility it could become profes-sionalized at the U. of C; but wedon't.Our confidence is based on theknowledge that athletic professionalism does not happen acci-dentally. It takes at least four ingrédients: an avid coach, an amplenumber of sub-rosa alumni donorsand recruiters, a pliable président,and a willing alumni director. Weare quite sure The University ofChicago lacks the first three, andwe know positively that it does nothâve the fourth. -H.R.H. Alumnus Julian J.

Reid, associate professor in the Departments ofMathematics and Geophysical Sciences— $16,700 for research in hydrody-namic stability for one year; and EldonDyer, associate professor in the Department of Mathematics — $88,000 forresearch entitled "analysis of mani-folds" for a period of one year.— The United States Air Force Officeof Aerospace Research announced agrant of $26,549 to Herbert L. Anderson, professor in the Department ofPhysics and the Enrico Fermi Institutefor Nuclear Studies, and to Swedishphysicist Helge Tyren, professor at theUniversity of Uppsala, who has beenworking with Mr. Anderson on TheUniversity's 450-Mev synchrocyclotron.They will continue their studies of"quasi-elastic proton-proton scatteringin light nuclei."— The Division of Nuclear Education and Training of the United StatesAtomic Energy Commission awarded$9,000 to The University's Departmentof Chemistry to supply radiochemicalapparatus and supplies in at least twogênerai chemistry courses for under-graduate students.Norman H. Nachtrieb, professor andchairman of the Department and professor in the Institute for the Study ofMetals, said, "The receipt of this awardwill make it possible to provide first- hand acquaintance with laboratory techniques involving the use of radioactivetracers by beginning students."FERMI MEMORIAL— The Board ofTrustées has formally designated a location for a University mémorial to Enrico Fermi, the man who directed thefirst controlled nuclear chain reaction21 years ago.The site allocation consists of an area250 feet long and 150 feet deep on theeast side of Ellis Avenue between 56thand 57th streets. It is where Mr. Fermioriginally performed the famous ex-periment on December 2, 1942 underthe west stands of Stagg Field. Thestands hâve since been demolished because they became structurally unsound,and tennis courts now cover the site.Across the street is the Enrico Fermi Institute for Nuclear Studies of The University, honoring Mr. Fermi who diedin 1954.Président George Wells Beadle saidthat plans for an appropriate mémorialare being developed and governmentsof the United States and Italy are beingasked to assist. Mr. Fermi was a nativeof Rome, Italy. A University committee is being organized to explore thestructure of the permanent mémorial;no spécifications hâve as yet been drawnup.TALENT SEARCH SUCCESS—Four years ago The University's Collège set out on a Small School TalentSearch. It sought to find talented graduâtes from the nation 's small and ruralhigh schools who often are overlookedin being offered collège opportunitiesand who often are overawed by thecurriculum of a major institution. Hasthe search succeeded?The answer cornes from Miss Mar-garet E. Perry, associate director of admissions at The University: "There isno doubt in anyone's mind in the Collège that the program has produced in-teresting and revealing results. Ourstatistics now prove the obvious: thattalented men and women from smallhigh schools can successfully be pre-pared there for a demanding collègeéducation."Since the start of the program ini960, 106 students from 10 states hâveentered the Collège in the TalentSearch, and 88 are still in attendance. Only seven were dropped for académiedeficiencies. The académie averages ofthe Talent Search students improveeach year, and by their upperclass yearsthey are performing at a level consider-ably above the average for the Collègeas a whole."What began as an experiment ini960 is now a standard operating procédure," added Miss Perry. "We seekout promising youngsters, some ofwhom.had not even planned to go tocollège. We invite them to apply foradmission and help them financially ifthey can make the grade. The programis paying dividends. We are gettingexcellent students and a truly représentative student body. The studentswe hâve recruited in the small townsare getting an educational expériencethey never thought possible."MATHEMATICS PROFESSOR—Ichiro Satake of the University of Tokyo has joined the faculty of The University as a professor of mathematics.He has been a member of the Department of Mathematics at the Universityof Tokyo since 1952, becoming professor in 1962. Mr. Satake studied at theCentre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris from 1957 to 1958 andwas a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey,from 1958 to i960. His research inter-ests are in Lie algebras, class field theo-ry, and most recently, problems incomplex manifolds.UNPRECEDENTED STUDY OFCOMMON STOCKS— The first com-prehensive and accurate measurementsof rates of return on investments in ailcommon stocks on the New York StockExchange from 1926 through i960hâve been completed recently. No investigation on such a scale has everbefore been attempted.The study was done by the Centerfor Research in Security Prices (spon-sored by Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fen-ner & Smith Inc.) of the GraduateSchool of Business of The University.Authors of the massive project areJames H. Lorie, professor of businessadministration and director of the Center, and Lawrence Fisher, associateprofessor of finance and associate director of the Center.The Magazine will feature a detailedreport in a fortheoming issue.10 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 1963December 1963 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO ToweriTopicsREPORT OF THE MONTHGROUNDWORK FOR OUTER SPACEby William SmallAs the closeness of "outer space" becomes ever more of a graspable reality, TOWERTOPICS présents this capsule look at The University's past, présent and plannedcontributions to this new frontier. William Small is Science Writer on the staff ofThe University of Chicago.From the StartFrom its very beginning, The University had an interest in space. Astronomer GeorgeEllery Haie first described the shape of the Milky Way and measured the magnetic field ofthe sun. He also established The University's famed Yerkes Observatory at Lake Geneva,Wisconsin.The first American Nobel Prize winner and an original faculty member of The Universityof Chicago, Albert A. Michelson measured the speed of light, the fundamental unit of spaceexploration — the c of Einstein's E = me'.Early in The University's history Thomas C. Chamberlin proposed an hypothesis ac-counting for the origin of the solar System. Robert A. Millikan first measured the chargeon an électron hère. Arthur Holly Compton took advantage of his love for mountainclimbing to study cosmic rays, the nuclear fragments which constantly bombard the Earthfrom space. And the jet stream which snakes around the world in the upper atmosphèrewas discovered by Carl-Gustaf Rossby while he was on the faculty.New Space LabOne of the most récent steps in the consolidation of the space studies hère is TheUniversity's new Laboratory for Astrophysics and Space Research, which is being constructedin support of the research of Professor John A. Simpson and others in the Enrico FermiInstitute for Nuclear Studies. The Laboratory is being financéd jointly by the National Aero-nautics and Space Administration and The University.Simpson, one of the University's leaders in space exploration, recently outlined a vitalarea of research at The University of Chicago:The science of astrophysics . . . is not new. It is the study of the sun, the cosmos,magnetic fields in space, and interplanetary plasmas.Astronomers and astrophysicists hâve been using two major tools to study thèsephenomena — optics and radio waves.A new astronomy is being evolved, however; the area of charged particle astronomy.Tower TopicS: Volume 30, Number 2 • Published by The University of Chicago for its alumni; Henry H. Hartmann, EditorIIDecember 1963 Tower TopicsEssentially we are determining the same things: "What is the information coming tous from outer space?" But we are using a différent source — charged particles. We canmeasure several of their components — direction, speed, composition and deflection.And we are using satellites and space probes instead of télescopes and radar.Experiments in SpaceSimpson's cosmic ray group, including Associate Professor Peter Meyer of the Departmentof Physics and the Fermi Institute and Chang-Yun Fan who is a Senior Physicist at theLaboratory for Applied Sciences and the Fermi Institute, has had experiments on 16 of thenation's space vehicles.The hydrogen particle, which is so prédominant in the human and in matter we know,makes up the greatest percentage of particles known as cosmic rays. What we want toknown is, "How does this hydrogen particle receive its great énergies?"As thèse tiny cosmic rays enter the solar System, they hâve been known to hâveénergies up to 10 billion billion électron volts. The highest énergies man has producedare only 100 billion électron volts.There are three areas which can be studied where particles could be accelerated inspace — Earth's magnetic field, the solar System, and the universe. We are attemptingto study ail three.The sun is the center of a giant magnetic field which puises during an 11-year half-cycle. This field, we believe, controls cosmic radiation, keeps it out and deflects it.During the upcoming IQSY (International Year of the Quiet Sun, when the sun is at aminimum in sun spot activity), University of Chicago scientists will try to hâve threetypes of space probes in position at the same time, near Mars, the sun and our ownEarth, which will show just how this fluctuation of the sun's field controls cosmic rays.If the proposed space vehicles go at their tentative launch dates, the combined resultswill give Simpson's group an overlapping view of the solar région to show the scale of thecosmic ray flux and define the edge of the sun's magnetic forces. It will define theforce of the solar wind, first described hère by Eugène Parker, Professor in the Department of Physics and the Fermi Institute.In the Atmosphère and on the GroundAnd while Simpson's experiments go into space on rockets, Meyer will continue to sendcosmic ray equipments to the top of the atmosphère via balloons. Physics ProfessorRobert W. Thompson, on the other hand, is building the world's largest bubble chamber tostudy the radiation at ground level. This large vacuum tank contains a gas which showsthe track of a particle entering from space.Anthony Turkevich and Edward Anders, both Professors in the Department of Chemistryand the Fermi Institute, are study ing météorites, "spécial travelers from outer space . . .(because) it is easy to understand the solar System with something which we can breakdown, analyze, reconstitute and so forth."Another thing which can be done is to measure the amount of cosmic radiation whichis encountered during a meteorite's travel through space."The new Laboratory for Astrophysics and Space Research will be equipped with alow-level radioactivity laboratory. The Laboratory is an attempt to eut off ail outside sourcesof radioactivity from the météorite studies — including cosmic radiation. The structure of12Tower Topics December 1 963the laboratory, two stories below ground, will be shielded with tons of concrète and steel.This should keep the levels of radioactivity inside the laboratory at the levels existing inthe world today, Turkevich explains.Turkevich is also designing a moon analysis experiment to détermine the chemicalcomposition of the lunar crust — a package to go on a Surveyor moon-landing capsule.Research via Astronomy and GeophysicsDespite the strong emphasis on particle astrophysics, University of Chicago astronomersstill dépend upon optical observations. William W. Morgan, Professor and Chairman ofthe Department of Astronomy, Yerkes Observatory, recently mapped the entire galaxyand classified ail the stars in the universe using telescopic equipment. Others in theDepartment are studying astronomical bodies for composition, âge and origin, through thetélescope. Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Morton D. Hull Distinguished Service Professor of Astrophysics, for example is studying the plasmas of space and the élémentswhich make up stars and interstellar gases.Even meteorologists like Tetsuya Fujita, Associate Professor in the Department ofGeophysical Sciences, are engaged in work now classified as space research. Fujita is theman who deciphered the pictures from the Tiros weather satellites. Information whichwas of no value before Fujita's discovery now helps in accurate, long-range weatherforecasting.Biology 's RôleExplaining the rôle of Biology in space research, Président George Wells Beadle,Nobel Prize winning geneticist, has this to say:Start with the proposition that there is a particular évolution of the éléments. Whenconditions are favorable, éléments evolve with hydrogen, then hélium, then carbon andoxygen. Under favorable conditions, simple compounds evolve. Thèse . . . finallygive rise to organic compounds . . . "living" Systems.We believe that this may hâve happened on Earth several billions of years ago. It issupposed that two characteristic molécules of ail living Systems arose spontaneously,the nucleic acids of the deoxyribo or ribo type, and protein molécules.In unraveling thèse events and describing them, académies hâve played a significantpart. Recently, the detailed molecular structure of deoxyribo nucleic acid has been workedout by Watson and Crick. (James Dewey Watson was a student at The University ofChicago. He shared the Nobel Prize in medicine with Francis Harry C. Crick in 1962.)We now know more about the replication of the molécule that is the basis of ailliving Systems.What does ail this hâve to do with space exploration? Simply, this: on Earth the inter-mediate phases in this process are no longer in existence. Obviously, the place to look,as many hâve already pointed out, is on the surfaces of the Moon, Mars and Venus.We do not expect to find any living créatures, as we know them, ... on the Moon, (but)some stages of this process may be présent. Mars is more interesting. Conditions thereare such that it seems reasonable that some sort of living System or Systems (are)in existence. Even Venus, despite its high température, may show some of the stages inthis process of évolution of complex organic molécules that are the precursors ofprésent living Systems.In biospace medicine, the social sciences and the humanities others are studying theeffects of "space" within their own fields. And hand in hand with research, new vistas openup to many of today's students along a new frontier of knowledge.13December 1963 Tower TopicsIN B R I E FEconomists View 1964"One of the great vintage years" in the history of the American economy was forecastfor 1964 at the annual Business Forecast Luncheon of the Graduate School of Business onDecember 5. The luncheon has been a major event in économie circles for a décade.The prédiction was made by Irving Schweiger, professor of marketing in theGraduate School of Business and former consultant to the Fédéral Reserve System. Twoother economists made optimistic prédictions at the luncheon, which was moderated byGeorge P. Schultz, dean of the Graduate School of Business. They were Béryl W.Sprinkler, MBA'48, PhD'52, vice président and economist for the Harris Trust and SavingsBank and consultant to Congress and Fédéral departments — and Walter D. Fackler,associate dean of the Graduate School of Business, formerly of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a Cabinet advisor.Ail three anticipate a tax eut by Congress which will act as a spur to the economy.Mr. Schweiger predicted a Gross National Product of $630 billion for 1964, a gain of$45 billion over 1963. Mr. Sprinkler pointed to current low inventories in relation to risingsales and récent low capital outlays relative to the size of the economy. He termed thesizable increase in the money supply, up four per cent in the past year, as significant.Mr. Fackler believes the economy will go firmly up but he cautioned that the prospectivetax eut and close fiscal policies will cause some real restraint in fédéral spending.Private and public construction should approach the $70 billion mark, according toMr. Fackler.The luncheon was sponsored by the Executive Program, which is an after hours coursefor business executives, and which can lead to the degree of Master of BusinessAdministration.Aegean FindSignificant findings recently rewarded searchers from The University of Chicago andIndiana University during exploratory studies along a section of Greek coastal areas,thought to be the location of ancient Kenchreai Harbor.For a thousand years — from 600 B.C. to 400 A.D. — the harbor of Kenchreai, at the mouthof the Aegean Sea, served as the gateway between the worlds of the East and West.Plotting of remains at the bottom of the harbor shows substructures of a pier some 300feet long. On this are foundations of large rectangular buildings with passages betweenthem and a main road running the length of the pier. The Kenchreai excavations alsouncovered a large brick building of Roman date embellished with mosaic floors, amarket place or waterfront plaza and a complex of warehouses.An early Christian church of perhaps the fourth century seems to hâve been builtover and near remains of earlier structures including an ancient warehouse and,guite possibly, the sanctuary of Isis, the Egyptian goddess who was considered suprêmein magical power, cunning, and knowledge — the goddess of love and immortality.A new expédition is planned for next summer.Robert L. Scranton, professor in the University's Department of Art and ClassicalLanguages and Literatures, directed the expédition which was undertaken under the auspices of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. Edwin S. Ramage,Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics at Indiana University, was associatedirector.Funds in the amount of $35,000 to $50,000 are being sought for the new expédition,according to Scranton.IlHère is one repairman who doesn't sencl a bill!Of course, you may never need him,either.

They hâve refurbished or refashioned andlearned to play those pipes and strings and bells anddrums which properly accompany voice and actionin the music-drama and which interpret its charactersand situations. They hâve redesigned the contempor-ary médiéval costumes which taught médiéval crowdsthat the ancient stories had immédiate référence totheir own lives, and which teach us too, by their blitheinfidelity to historical surfaces, that thèse stories areoriented to truth and not to time.It was scarcely a quarter century ago that the lateGustave Cohen, eminent historian of early Frenchliterature, observed that in his long scholarly careerhe had done nothing more important than to inspirecertain gifted students to produce sélections from médiéval French drama for modem audiences in Paris.It was only in 1951 that the citizens of York, England,determined to revive, as part of their contribution tothe Festival of Britain, a three-hour version of the day-long Biblical drama played annually on their streetsfrom the fourteenth century until 1572, when royalauthority, its mind on the Reformation, forced its dis-continuance. Mr. E. Martin Browne, noted for hisdirection of the play s of T. S. Eliot and of CharlesWilliams, staged the original performances at York, Why lias this drama, whose development began athousand years ago, corne to interest modem audiences? Prompted by the coming Chicago première ofThe Play of Herod, to be performed under the spon-sorship of the Visiting Committee on the Humanitiesat Rockefeller chapel in January, Jérôme Taylor provides this background and analysis. Mr. Taylor isAssociate Professor in the Department of English anda member of the executive committee of The Committee on Médiéval Studies.by Jérôme Taylorand thèse, by popular demand, hâve been expandedand repeated in subséquent years. Again, in 1957,Mr. Richard Southern, already distinguished by hisbooks on modem stagecraft and on the Victorian, theGeorgian, the Restoration, and the Elizabethan stage,published his Médiéval Théâtre in the Round. Dedi-cated to the memory of Bertolt Brecht and the BerlinerEnsemble, this remarkable study delineates those fea-tures of the médiéval morality stage which, in South-ern's view, both link it closely to the avant-garde stageof our time and are richly suggestive of directionswhich future expérimentation might profitably take.Finally, in 1958, a scant five years ago, the NewYork Pro Musica, a world renowned ensemble ofsingers and instrumentalists devoted to performingmusic anterior to that of Johann Sébastian Bach, under-took perhaps the most daring and astonishingly suc-cessful venture of ail— the revival of that oldest formof médiéval drama, the Latin music-drama, choosingfor this purpose the Ludus Danielis, or Play of Daniel,composed about 1140 by students at the cathedra!school of Beauvais. And, having presented this playbefore deeply moved and highly appréciative audiences in major cities both on this continent and inEurope, Mr. Noah Greenberg, director of the ProMusica, is now in course of introducing us to a secondexample of the liturgical drama, the Play of Herod, anEpiphany play produced in the twelfth century at themonastery of St.-Benoît-sur-Loire in Fleury, France.With its world première on December 9 in The Clois-ters in New York, the play now cornes to Chicago,indeed to Rockefeller Chapel, where its opening performance on January 6 falls, most appropriately, on thefeast of the Epiphany itself .16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 1963INTEREST in the médiéval drama began, to be sure,in the early years of the nineteenth century whenthe Romantic fascination for things of the past invested"Gothick" art and culture with a kind of glow. It wasknown that the tragedy and comedy of Greece andRome had ceased to be aeted in those centuries whichsaw the changeover from the ancient world to theChristian Middle Ages. Texts of Terence, of Plautus,of Seneca remained, but the theatrical tradition wasdead, and though médiéval scribes copied and readthe ancient plays, they misunderstood the way in whichthey had been produced. When and where, then, wasour modem theatrical tradition reborn?A whole séries of nineteenth-century scholars traeedthe genn of the modem theater to the tenth centuryand to the Easter célébrations of the médiéval Church.As religions célébrations in honor of Dionysus hadgiven rise to ancient Greek tragedy, so religion, thistime the Christian religion, once again proved itself"theatrogenetic" in the Middle Ages. At first, simpleexpressive dramatizations of events surrounding theinsurrection of Christ were sung in Latin by the elergyin elose connection with the public worship. Thepraetiee extended itself to yet other events in the life of Christ eelebrated on yet other feast-days of theChurch— on Christmas, for example, or on Epiphany,the feast of the Three Kings, or Wise Men. Whenthèse simple dramatizations began to be put togetherand elaborated, the first of the three great forms ofmédiéval drama was born— the music-drama of theChurch, also called the liturgical drama from its inti-mate relationship to the liturgy, or public worship.When, in the fourteenth century, laymen from theeraft guilds undertook to act ont this drama in thepublie squares, delivering their speeches in the lan-guage of the people with rather less music and withrather more horseplay, bombast, strut, and gênerai"realism," the second great form of médiéval dramaappeared, the so-called "mystery cycles" or panoramicdramatizations of Biblical history from Création toJudgment Day. Developed concurrently with the second was the third form, the morality play, an allegori-eal représentation of man's struggle with personifiedvirtues and vices as he moved unsteadily through life.And from ail three forms, the modem theater evolved.Today, we retain in broad outline, though with distinctqualifications, this view which traces the birth of ourtheater to the preeincts of the médiéval Church.DtTAIL FROM THE HUNTINGFIELD PSALTER — ENGLISH, LATE I2th CENTURY. Courtesy Pierpont Morgan Library, New York."DECEMBER, 1963 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 17WHAT KIND OF VALUE does the modem audience find in the médiéval drama? The old viewsaw this drama as primarily an audio-visual instrument, so to speak, for the instruction of the illiteratemasses in matters of doctrine and sacred history; aslimited in its objective and consequently in its ma-terials. Having experienced this drama in production,modem audiences are struck rather by its expressivedimension, its power to corne to grips with the émotions, the aspirations, which men seem always to feelbefore the mystery of the cosmos, before the riddle ofman's origin and final destiny, before the enigma ofman's own evil or the dulling frustrations of pain anddeath, before the fragility of life and the shadowedreaches of history, before the felt or imagined présence of a God who appears to watch and wait in awe-some silence but may yet reach out to touch the worldand transform man's perplexity into the joy of under-standing.Of the three forms of médiéval drama, it is theliturgical music-drama that most fully realizes thisexpressive dimension. One need not be a médiévalilliterate or a believer to respond to its power. To illus-trate, let us attempt to recreate the expérience of sucha play as one might hâve found presented in a twelfth-century cathedral in the Christmas season.The time is the pre-dawn hours of darkness. Thecathedral with its sculptured kings and prophets andsaints of ail âges, with its outlandish beasts and foliageand peering démons carved in stone, with its mysteri-ous géométrie shapes and numerical proportions ("forGod made the whole world out of numbers" ) stands inthe night as the intended image of ail création, reach-ing toward the distant heavens. Within, in the chancel,the facing choirs of dark-robed canons will hâve justcompleted chanting the psalms and hymns and scriptural lessons of matins, the officiai night-time serviceof the Church. Men and women from the surroundingcity and country will hâve been filtering in throughthe portais, until the nave is well filled with the standing folk. Ail lights will hâve been extinguished and ailare waiting in silence and in darkness.Suddenly, in a recessed arch high above the altar,a flickering light appears and grows brighter, and awhite-robed youth, his shoulders mounted with wingsof peacock plumes, sings out in a clear ténor voice:"Cease to fear! I bring good news of great joy to ailpeople. . . ." Tapers appear in a dozen more archeshigh above, and identically garbed youths standing ineach break forth into choral song: "Glory to God inthe highest, and peace on earth to men of good will!"Eyes now fall to the chancel, where candies hâvebeen brought to illumine a curtained enclosure on theraised steps before the altar. Back in the nave of the18 THE UNIVERSITY OF church several shadowy figures bearing hooked stavesbegin to stir. The crowd parts to let them pass, andthey begin a song which tells of their hopes, of theangel-song they hâve heard, of their wish to see thisword that has corne to pass. As they move toward thecurtained enclosure, they are recognized as représentative of the peasant tillers of the soil and tendersof flocks, the rustics and serfs of the day. And as thèsehumble men approach the raised enclosure at the headof the cruciform church, the curtains part. There liesthe Child born to free them from toil and care anddeath, and before this Hope we see them kneel withoutstretched arms.Song, instrumentation, colorful costumes and theoverall nature of the drama being presented in thiscathedral setting reach a high point of emotionalexpérience for the people of the time. The action continues toward a grand climax, and as the darkenedskies outside the church grow light with morning, ailmusical instruments, ail voices, ail the bells of thechurch break forth in the final Te Deum laudamus—"Thee, O God, we praise!"THE POWER OF THE MEDIEVAL DRAMA,both in itself and for modem audiences, is rootednot only in its expressiveness of perennial humanvalues, but in yet another feature— its figurai quality."Realistic" that drama is not. It does not aim to giveus "fully realized" characters whose speeches developa total psychology, a whole particular personal history.It does not aim to give us a "plot" in the sensé ofa fully developed step-by-step séries of events thatflow one into another by the opération of humandécisions and natural causes. Rather, its "events" aresymbolic situations, each with its own meaning sup-ported by the meanings of the others. Thus, they pointto one another on the level of significance; they do notlead into one another as events do on the level ofnaturalistic history. Historical they may be in thelimited sensé that they draw their matter more oftenthan not from sacred history. But whether they présent God's création of the world, or the fall of Adam,or the fratricide of Cain, or the vision and trials ofsuch prophets as Daniel, or the nativity of Jésus, orthe dire rage of a prideful Herod, or the crucifixion orrésurrection, or the inadequacy of man before theJudgment of divine Justice; and whether or not theyprésent thèse events in a sublime style or mix themwith "human touches" of ordinary and even "low"life— in any case médiéval plays give us open-endedprojections of the human condition. They figure forth,symbolically one might say, the things from whichmen suffer and the things for which men hope. Theydemand a meaning to the human story, in whole andin each part, and they abound with a searching, a hopeand expectation that a meaning yet concealed, a reso-CIÏICAGO MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 1963lut ion for which man gropes, rest finally with a powerbeyond our full understanding.Given the expressive and figurai eharaeter of ailmédiéval drama, we would be foolish to corne to itwith critical expectations derived from our expérienceof the later realistic drama, or to condemn it for notbeing what it never intended to be. One must notexpect a unity of consequential action or a naturalismof characterization or a conformity to either the tragieor the comic molds. Ballet affords perhaps the elosestanalogue to the médiéval drama, especially the liturgi-cal music-drama. "In principle," writes Eric Auerbach,"this great drama eontains everything that occurs inworld history. In it ail the heights and depths of humanconduct and ail the heights and depths of stylistic expression find their morally or aesthetically establishedright to exist; and hence there is no basis for a sépa ration of the sublime from the low and everyday, forthey are indissolubly connected in Christ's very lifeand suffering. Nor is there any basis for concern withthe unifies of time, place, or action, for there is butone place— the world; and but one action— man's falland rédemption.'FALL" AND "REDEMPTION"? For the religions person, Christian or of other faith, thèseterm.s may hâve a particular significance. For ail menwithout distinction they give voiee to man's humancondition and continuing hopes. For the powerful expression of thèse, médiéval drama unités music, spectacle, verse, gesture, and figurai situation in an expressive art-complex of unique integrity. And it is for thisreason that it speaks to, even for, mankind of ourday. ?KING HEROD— 1 2th CENTURYSCULPTURE BY PISA.DECEMBER, 1963 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 19A SEARCHING LOOK AT PAROCHIAL SCHOOLSNational Opinion Research Center Studywith James J. Vanecko, Samuel Stouffer Feïlow,National Opinion Research Centerof The University of ChicagoWhen a substantial segment of a nation's population is educated in a separate parochial school System, the effects of such a System, as well as the de-mands on it, are of significant interest to ail concerned,whether they are involved directly or indirectly.In the absence of up-to-date, detailed, objective,published information, the formulation of opinions andpolicies is necessarily based on précèdent and supposition at best— or, at worst, on preconceived opinions andpréjudice. The purpose of scientific research hère is tolay a clear-cut, statistically backed foundation for ex-amination and re-evaluation if necessary.Two studies commissioned by the Carnegie Corporation are looking at différent aspects of Catholicéducation. One study, under the direction of the University of Notre Dame is primarily concerned with theprésent status of the Catholic school Systems. A second,being conducted by the National Opinion ResearchCenter (NORC) of The University of Chicago is in-terested in the effects of Catholic éducation on theadult Catholic population of the country. The NORCstudy is being directed by Andrew M. Greeley andPeter H. Rossi. Andrew Greeley is a Roman Catholicpriest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, a Lecturer in theDepartment of Sociology at The University of Chicagoand Senior Study Director at NORC. Peter Rossi isDirector of the National Opinion Research Center andProfessor of Sociology at The University of Chicago.Mr. Rossi has previously conducted studies of Catholicéducation in the eastern United States. There seem to be three basic ways that Catholicschools affect our society. ( 1 ) Thèse schools were de-signed to further the goals of the Catholic Church;therefore they hâve an effect on American religionslife. (2) The denominational schools exist in the présence of a state-supported school System and thus com-pete in some sensé with the public schools. (3) Thereare effects on the structure of local communities andthe larger society of which thèse communities are apart. The NORC study will attempt to view the issuefrom thèse three perspectives.The magnitude of the Catholic school Systemcan be seen in a few statistical facts. More than fiveand a half million pupils attend close to ten thousandelementary parochial schools, accounting for a littleless than fifteen per cent of ail students in the nation selementary grades. Roman Catholic high schools ac-count for a smaller proportion of the total high schoolpopulation. About one third of Roman Catholic adultshâve obtained their éducation in parochial elementaryschools; presently 46% of Roman Catholic children ofelementary school âge are enrolled in the parochialschools. One half of ail Catholic collège graduâtes ofJune 1961 received their degrees from Catholic collèges.The unique feature of the American Roman Catholicschool System, as compared to other large religioussponsored Systems in other countries, is that it opérâteswithout significant amounts of state financial support.This is a school System that is financéd to some smalldegree by tuition charges, but largely by voluntarydonations.20 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 1963Historically the Catholic schools are perhaps mostproperly seen as part of the Counter-Reformation. TheAmerican public schools established in the nineteenthcentury were in many cases dominated by particularProtestant dénominations, and even when church andstate were more clearly separated in the latter half ofthe nineteenth century, the schools were Protestant intone and often curriculum, if not tied to any particulardénomination. The American Catholics reactedstrongly tô the Protestant character of the publicschools by enacting in 1884 the Catholic Church lawssetting up parochial schools.The bulk of the Catholic component of our population were among the later arrivais to the United States;Catholics differed from the rest of the population inethnie background as well as religion. This ethnie-différence reinforced the separatist tendencies of theChurch and its adhérents. The parochial schools beganto serve the triple purpose of providing Catholic reli-gious instruction, preventing exposure to potentiallyProtestant ideology, and welding together the mem-bers of récent neweomers from a foreign culture.It is obvious that time has changed many of the keyéléments that we hâve mentioned. First, the publicschools hâve become more secular and cannot gen-erally be considered Protestant today. Second, theCounter-Reformation seems to be drawing to a closewith ever greater Catholic interest in the ecumenicalmovement. Third, the Catholic population is no longerat the bottom of the occupational and économie lad-der and has lost through assimilation much of its ethnieflavor. Together thèse three developments hâve pro-duced considérable changes in the American CatholicChurch with respect to the parochial school System.Methods of the NORC StudyThe NORC study is based on interviews with ap-proximately two thousand adult Catholics from ailparts of the United States. This group of two thousandhouseholds was selected from a larger group of eightthousand représentative households, which had beeninvolved in an earlier research project, thus providinga valuable basis for the current study.Along with thèse interviews, supplementary information is being obtained from interviews with 500 Protestants, for comparison purposes.The worth of the study will dépend on the sensibilityand sensitivity of the interview schedule used. Therehas been extensive consultation with other scholarswho hâve worked in the field of empirical measure-ment of religious beliefs and practices, among themCharles Y. Glock, University of California, GerhardLenski, University of Michigan, Joseph Fichter, Loyolaof the South, and George N. Shuster, University ofNotre Dame. The topics that are included in the interviews areas follows:1. Religious Participation and Practices.2. Attitudes Toward Work and OccupationalAchievement.3. Religious Knowledge and Beliefs.4. Social and Political Values.5. Participation in Community Life.6. Attitudes Toward Education— Public andParochial.7. Identification With Organized RomanCatholicism.8. Religious Background.9. Detailed Educational Expériences.Considération is given to the fact that Catholics whoattend parochial schools may be différent to start withfrom Catholics who do not attend, because they hâvecome from backgrounds and environments which aremore religious. At the same time, proximity of availableCatholic schools can be a determining factor in theschool selected.In organizing the data that are being collected therewill be need to limit the analysis by means of settingup a séries of hypothèses and determining if they aretrue or not. Thèse hypothèses will be derived from sixpropositions which are basic to current discussion ofCatholic schools:1. The Catholic schools hâve little effect on thereligious practice of their graduâtes.2. Catholic schools do not do a good job ofteaching religion.3. Because of the "other worldly" emphasis ofCatholic teaching, the graduâtes of Catholicschools will not be as successful in the occupational world as the graduâtes of publicschools.4. Catholic schools isolate Catholics from otherAmericans.5. Graduâtes of Catholic schools are no morelikely to support the social teaching of theChurch than are other Catholics.6. Graduâtes of Catholic schools will be lesssympathetic to the needs of the public schoolSystem.7. The Catholic schools help to maintain theinner cohérence and unity of the Catholiccommunity.One point is évident: Detailed, factual informationis the basis for effective évaluation. The NationalOpinion Research Center study, through the Carnegiegrant, is a step in providing this information. ?DECEMBER, 1963 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 21ALUMNI OFFSPRING-COLLEGE FRESHMEN:Seventy-one students in the Collège freshmen classthis fall are offspring of University of Chicago alumni.A spécial welcome over pizza and coke was extendedby the Alumni Association.

It registers car performance precisely— pickup, hill climbing, passing— under ailsorts of driving situations. Fast, slow or in-between speeds. Long runs or short hops. Cityor country roads. Rainy, snowy or sunny days. Sizzling heat or extrême cold. Fuel consump-tion is also measured down to the nearest cubic centimeter. Ail year long, the exacting testsgo on and on. In fact, a total of more than 50,000 test miles are logged every day at the threeGM Proving Ground facilities— in Michigan, at Pikes Peak and in Arizona.But testing doesn't begin or end on the track. In the GM Proving Grounds and other GMlaboratories are ultra-modern instruments, machines and computers— specifically built totest for noise, vibration, stress and durability in engine, body and châssis. In fact, practicallyeverything that goes into a GM car is thoroughly tested and retested. Thèse constant laboratory checks make the data collected on the road more meaningful, more useful every year.The goal can be wrapped up in one word—quality!The test engineer wears three, sometimes even four hats. He plans tests, performs tests,évaluâtes test results— and even designs the equipment used for testing. He makes a bigcontribution to your comfort, safety and pleasure.Product quality is paramount at General Motors.
