THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINEVOLUME LXXINUMBER 1INAUGURATION ISSUE**«w£93,^.r^:|UNI VELIBRARY ,**1116 EAST 59TH STREET[CHICAGO IL 60637THEUNIVERSITYOF CHICAGOLIBRARYOn the cover: The face on the cover isone that appears high on the 59th Streetentrance of Ida Noyes Hall. During thesummer months, she is almost hiddenbehind ivy, but as the leaves wither, theface emerges, ghost-like. This is not animage of Ida Noyes, as some enthusiastshave suggested, but an anonymousmedieval lady. There are many suchcarvings on the older University buildings, some very lovely. They rest tranquil in their wimples and are pale grayreminders of that era's most remarkablemedieval lady, Eleanor of Acquitaine. Itis excessive to declare that she set herstamp on the period, but without her itwould have been a duller time.Some have seen Eleanor as an architectof the concept of courtly love, which attempted to redistribute mere passionin a more elegant and formal system ofhonor and admiration. Conclusive evidence for Eleanor's role in the development of courtly love, however, is lacking.But what is clear is her significance as apatron and a politician. Troubadourswere drawn to her castle in Poitiers andat least one, Bernard de Ventadour, wasshipped off to England when his chansons became too personal. These bards inEleanor's court were the transmitters ofthe legends of Tristan, Iseult, and KingArthur and made them into folk history.In our time, Eleanor of Acquitaine issubject to some mythologizing herself.She is the queen portrayed in such contemporary plays and films as Becket, TheLion in Winter, and every Robin Hoodfilm where the mother of Richard theLionhearted appears, urging that ransombe raised for her son. But Hollywoodaside, she is interesting even in moredomestic matters.For instance, she introduced uniformweights and measures for corn, liquids,and lengths of cloth; she devised a coinage which would be valid anywhere inEngland. She founded a hospital andunderwrote various abbeys.Her first husband was Louis VII ofFrance and her second was Henry II ofEngland, whose Angevin empire extended nearly to the Pyrenees. It madefor a certain tension in the territories.Henry contrived to keep Eleanor andher considerable politics locked away fornearly a decade. At his death, she setherself free and traveled from town tocastle, releasing those imprisoned un justly by Henry's arbitrary sheriffs.(Remember the one at Nottingham?) Itwas a dazzling bit of stateswomanshipwhich must have captured the imagination of the English populace. She was,during this 1 189 cavalcade of liberation,sixty-seven or sixty-nine years old.Through her last decade (she lived tojust over eighty), she reconciled warringviscounts, established abbeys, mountedat least one battle, and made a diplomatic mission to Spain in which she firmedup the rule of a large part of Europe forseveral generations. She outlived bothhusbands and all but two of her ten children, leaving the English nobles to dealwith one — the notorious John Lackland — who was more than politely urgedto sign the Magna Charta.The image of Eleanor, atop her bier atFontrevault, France, is not unlike ourimage on the cover which is a more contemporary nod to the ladies and legendsof courtly love. Eleanor's is more interesting, though. That lovingly sculpturedimage lying in permanent repose in theabbey church has her head lifted a littlebecause she is reading a book.THE UNIVERSITYOF CHICAGOMAGAZINEVolume LXXI, Number 1Autumn 1978Alumni Association5733 South University AvenueChicago, Illinois 60637(312) 753-2175President: Charles W.

PoliskiEditorial Assistant: Paula S. AusickToday we might have a sense of eternity. This is a youngUniversity. There are still a few people alive who can recall itsfirst building going up in 1892. But inevitably in a few yearsthings will be different. As we inaugurate a new era in theUniversity today, we are also stepping out, beyond our birthplace, into the long history that Mr. Harper envisioned on theopening day when he talked about this University as it mightbe a "thousand years hence."In its short time the University has accomplished so much thatwe, too, can have faith in its thousand years. In only a fewgenerations the members of this University have contributedmuch to the world we know today: not only our understanding of the world, but the world itself as men have shaped it, theworld we are now trying to understand.As it gets older, the University has more confidence aboutitself and about the world, too. When it began, it was themodel for world universities; it had to be brash and its members must have felt both isolated and attacked many times inthe world of learning. And in those days many people couldnot even figure out where it was. In the west, somewhere. Weall know the story of the child of the Harvard scholar whodecided to move here, the child ending his night prayer:"Good-bye, God; we're going to Chicago." Mr. Harper is thefirst one to tell that story. One wonders whether the child wassimply misunderstood by his eavesdropping parent who couldnot imagine that the child might use an oath. Perhaps what theboy really said was, "Good! By God, we're going toChicago!"Today there is a confidence and a greater ease of spirit thanbefore. In so many endeavors the leadership and first place ofthis University are accepted and expected, that it seems natural to us. This is not an ancient foundation; it has never been aterribly rich one; it always has to work a little harder. Thesehave been its blessings and strengths, in a sense. But it has hada greater blessing: A wonderful faculty which, generation afterOCTOBER 6, 1978A DAY OF CELEBRATIONROBERT W. RENEKERChairman, Board of TrusteesExcerpts from theIntroduction of the PresidentInauguration Convocation2generation, has known what the school stands for. As the newpresident observed recently in an interview, Chicago is a raritynowadays — it remains a real university: comprehensible, ofhuman proportions, with clear and accepted standards. Andthe faculty and students of this real University have had magnificent leadership from nine amazing men in the past: verydifferent men with very different ideas, but who shared a greatreverence for this University, and who made leading the University the consuming and passionate concern of their lives.When we set out to search for the tenth president, we knewthat there could not possibly be more than a few people whomwe might seriously consider to succeed those men in thesetimes, when the destiny of no private institution is assured. Ashas happened so many times in the past, it was the supportand assistance of the faculty who were partners with the trustees in making the right decision, in the election of the bestpossible candidate. I know I can speak for all the trusteeswhen I say we have absolute confidence in the Tightness ofthat decision. "There are no oaths to be taken, norany statutes to be read . . . Today isacknowledgement and celebration."I do think all of us rejoice on this day. The University's historyhas been glorious, its place assured. It is its future, its destiny,that we, who love it, wonder and worry about. That is why thisinauguration is so important to us. To be the president of theUniversity of Chicago in this time is to occupy a high andhazardous place in the epic of the human adventure. That is awonderful position to be in. But we know we were right tohave asked Hanna Gray to accept it, and she was right to havedone so. She will have the whole support of our trustees ineverything she does as president of this University.There are no oaths to be taken here, nor any statutes to beread. The President is already in office. Today is acknowledgement and celebration. It is an honor to present to you thetenth President of The University of Chicago, Hanna HolbornGray.3THE INAUGURAL ADDRESSHANNA H. GRAYPresident of the UniversityInaugural AddressInauguration Convocation Sometime around the turn of the century — and on a day, onesuspects, of somewhat lowered spirits — William RaineyHarper composed an account of the sorrows and satisfactionsof the presidential office. His description of administrative lifesounds unnervingly contemporary. But this is not the occasionto dwell on its details, for, as Mr. Simon Tappertit observed,"There are strings in the human heart that had better not bevibrated." It is more to our purpose that in the course of hisreflections Mr. Harper drew from his experience two fundamental lessons: "There are," he wrote, "two commonmaxims, which if quoted in a form exactly the opposite of thatin which they are in vogue, must regulate the work of the chiefofficer of a university. The first of these is this: One shouldnever himself do what he can in anyway find someone else todo. . . . Further, the president should never do today what byany possible means he can postpone until tomorrow."It would be, to put it mildly, presumptuous for me to judgewith what success and strategy my three distinguished predecessors seated on this platform fulfilled Mr. Harper's precepts.And it would, of course, be highly imprudent on my part torush into a pledge to observe them for myself.Taken literally, Mr. Harper most surely did not himself practice the lessons he preached. Had he not pressed on in atearing hurry, the University of Chicago might very well notexist. As with so many texts, it is therefore to the spiritual andnot the literal interpretation that we must turn. In these termsof exegesis, the maxims of postponement and delegation express an understanding that academic governance must befounded on informed deliberation and its quality on that of itsparticipants. Had Harper and his successors not acted in harmony with these, then in a still deeper sense the University ofChicago would not exist. For it has been the paradox andstrength of the University's history that powerful imagination,impatient energy, and pronounced intellectual force havebeen at every point made to serve the creation and enable theguidance of an institution committed to an insistent respect forprocess, for reasoned initiative and academic freedom, forindependent and thorough argument about ends, and a confident dependence on many individual competences formeans.5"Speaking in very general terms, onecan say that it is the purpose of auniversity to preserve, evaluate,understand, and transmit to futuregenerations the best of man's totalaccumulated culture — its history,religion, art, music, literature, science,and technology."George W. Beadle, president emeritus,1961-1968Inaugural Address, May 5, 1961 The successors of Mr. Harper have all shared and supportedthese principles. We have overwhelming cause to declare ourgratitude for their clear convictions, their extraordinary gifts ofeffective service, and for the integrity with which they haveendowed this University.The responsible maintenance of that integrity and with it, ofthe character of the academic enterprise will be, as always,the task and test of the years ahead.That many problems with which we have to deal are not newmakes them no less demanding and no more susceptible tosimple solution. The litany of issues confronting our universities is familiar. We all experience the erosion and continuing limitation of the material resources on which the expectations and assumptions of higher education had for sometime been constructed. We all perceive the impact of inflationand the expanding uncertainties which follow in its wake. Weare aware of the transformed outlook derived from changingdemographic trends. We are concerned with the shiftingpolicies and conditions of external support and attitude, withall that these imply for the future of institutional autonomy andthe continuity of academic programs. We are preoccupiedwith the narrowing of opportunities for younger scholars andwith all that this may mean for the future of the academicprofession and for the vitality and renewal of the learned disciplines and of the life of universities.67"The mission of the University ofChicago is primarily the intellectualsearch for truth and the transmissionof intellectual value. The emphasismust be on the achievement of thatunderstanding which can be calleddiscovery."Edward H. Levi, president emeritus,1968-1975Inaugural Address, November 14, 1968 These inconvenient realities cannot be argued away. Thedanger is that we should come to be governed by the pressuresand the politics of such constraints, and that they should cometo be used as excuses for not attending to the examination ofcrucial educational questions. That can happen in a numberof ways, whether by yielding to the short-term view in such aform as to diminish future possibility and control, or by following the piper and so permitting, however imperceptibly andgradually, the distortion of institutional balances and goals. Anatural reaction to the troubled environment would be to turninward, toward the protection and preservation of present territory, in a mood inhospitable to risk and creative imagination.Postponement — the refusal to confront uncomfortablequestions — and delegation — the assignment elsewhere of responsibility for what has happened or what needs doing-could be the symptoms of that decline. The greatest danger,large because also least tangible and most wasting, would beto engage in an apparently principled descent to decentmediocrity. We must take care not to emulate CardinalWolsey who, as a schoolboy once wrote, saved his life bydying on the road from York to London.The first prescription for avoiding this peculiar path of salvation is to take the difficult necessary steps to decide on ourown principal directions, to concentrate on what we aim to dobest, to be willing to define and to make the major choices ofinternal priority.The intellectual tradition of this University has been mostcharacteristically framed by its efforts to discover and buildamong different fields of knowledge those relationships thatgenerate new questions for research, new methods of scholarship, a liberal breadth of teaching and of curriculum. Thedistinctive forms of graduate, undergraduate, and professionaltraining represented here have, at their best, shaped a coherence which has made the sense of the University as a wholepredominate. That sense rests on a shared concern for thosecomplex areas of inquiry and study that reflect and extend theinterdependences of learning and of educated understanding.9"We are pressed for justification ofliberal education. We need to domore than merely recognize the factthat history is not only the record ofdecisions and actions, but also theclash of ideas and values."John T. Wilson, president emeritus,1975-1978Inaugural Address, March 4, 1976 Our University has established a strong foundation on whichto address its larger goals. Above all, we have a continuingopportunity to take up the really interesting questions withwhich universities are faced and which can be a stimulus toserious and sustained deliberation on the strengths that weshould try to keep or to develop, on the ideas and risks thatwill be our investment. Such recurrent engagement and reexamination are surely the measure of a university's healthand of its power to act in accordance with what we profess:namely, the ruling imperative of scrupulous inquiry, preciseanalysis, and informed judgment in the face of complex issuesand of competing claims to our allegiance.It remains to thank you all — trustees, delegates, faculty, students, distinguished guests, and friends (categories that arenot, I am glad to say, necessarily mutually exclusive) — foryour presence and for joining us in a common dedication tothe purposes and promise of this University. I shall try to domy best in the collaboration which, with such generosity, youhave committed to me.And now let us begin, or resume, our work. I was going to add,in deference to Mr. Harper's precept, let us begin tomorrow,or perhaps after lunch. But our first major task is too pleasurable for postponement. It is the object of this convocation tocelebrate the life of significant scholarship, to remind ourselves that institutions like ours have worth insofar as theycreate and recreate the conditions for that life and nourish itsconsequences, to reiterate our citizenship in a larger commonwealth of learning, and pay tribute to the individual accomplishment that defines its bill of rights and advances itslegitimate boundaries.That, I think, is what the award of honorary degrees is allabout. In recognizing the contribution of those who will receive them, we reaffirm, with gratitude, the standards thatshape the aspirations of this university community.10ijifjHfe'1 IK'silt ; 11 I! 1111ON THE MIDWAYThe Day: October 6, 1 978It was a regular hallelujah frommorning till night, this inauguration ofHanna Holborn Gray as the tenth president of the University.The morning light came up uponenormous maroon and white bannersdraped right across the machicolatedbattlements of Harper's towers reading:VIVAT HANNA, and upon papier-machebrightly painted gargoyles hung up onthe flat face of the administration building. All this the middle-of-the-nightwork of agile excited students.Before 8:00, while Chicago policewere closing off blocks and blocks ofstreets around Rockefeller Chapel, nbctelevision crews were hoisting camerasinto the balcony of the west transept, thewalkway at the rear of the reredos behind the altar, and poking the lensedsnout of one through a tiny windowforty feet above the floor opposite thepulpit (NBC taped the entire ceremonyfor us in an upcoming documentary onthe University). The choir was rehearsing before 9:00, and, outside in the windup on the tower, the brass band and thecarilloneur were competing for the airwaves. At the same hour a band of students was singing an aubade outside thepresident's house; and two youths froman awning company stretched the lastyards of a gold striped awning acrossWoodlawn Avenue, an awning thatstretched from the cloisters of Ida Noyesover to the Porte Cochere of the Chapel(that, in case of rain).Inside IdaNoyes an army of Buildingsand Grounds personnel cleared the entire first floor of furniture at dawn. Thegymnasium and front foyer were turnedinto an enormous wardrobe and backstage for the brilliant enrobing of thefive hundred and four faculty, visitingheads of other institutions (two hundred12 of them), and trustees who wouldmarch. The library and its anteroomclanked and glittered with five hundredsherry glasses on silver trays and onehundred forty-four bottles of wine. Inthe cloister club they set up forty-onetables and four hundred and ten chairswhile inauguration staff people hung theflags of Oxford, Harvard, Yale, BrynMawr, Northwestern, and Chicago(Mrs. Gray's universities) on the walls,and a huge oil painting of the Universityof Chicago escutcheon over the centereast windows. Ladies flitted among thetables fluttering down table cloths andanchoring them with forty-one vaseseach carrying two roses.Ticketholders began lining up in frontof the chapel before 10:00, as facultyand the delegates from the other universities began drifting into Ida Noyes.At 10:00 the Chapel doors wereopened. All seats were filled at 10:15,when, outside, Mrs. Gray was seen walking from the President's house over toIda Noyes preceeded by a cameramanwalking backwards (guided by a power-pack carrier walking forwards) and surrounded by a clutch of reporters withmicrophones. At the west transept doorof the Chapel sixty-one reporters andphotographers were passing the credentials check on their way in and dollies ofequipment from five more televisioncrews were being caned in.Inside IdaNoyes, Robert Ashenhurst,the University Marshal, began lining updelegates and faculty in the gym at10:30, calling off the roll of universitiesin the order of founding dates like thepresiding officer at a well-dressed convention: "the University of Oxford,Harvard University . . . the University ofMaryland . . . Bryn Mawr . . . Bard College . . ." Trustees, officers, ten honorarydegree recipients and their sponsors, the dean of Rockefeller Chapel, and Mrs.Gray were lining up in a double columnthat stretched from the back of the library out in the front foyer. At 10:55,the Marshal and the student marshals,led by the flagbearers, began the trekwest on Fifty-ninth Street to the Chapel,winding their way through a greatthrong of spectators on both sides of theroute, distracted by a band of studentspainted and cavorting as clowns passingout two thousand balloons each bearingthe name of one of the ten presidents.Loudspeakers set up at the front of theChapel for the convenience of thecrowds that could not get in carried themusic of the great anthem out over theMidway as the giant academic dragonmoved its swaying many-colored lengthalong — twelve minutes from head totoe. As it moved down the aisle the colors of gown, cap, and tassel took onstrange iridescence under the glare ofthe television lights.During the ceremony the crowdstanding outside could hear again andagain the unfamiliar sound of twothousand people inside laughing andcheering (see the talks printed in this issue). The convocation itself, with itstalks, its formal presentations of degrees, and its regular highlights of renaissance music, was called by one visiting president, "the highest high mass ofthe academic world." If so, this was acelebratory one.Afterwards the procession turned itself around and marched, amid applauseand the delighted squeals of tiny LabSchoolers, in reverse order back to IdaNoyes for the sherry; after which thedelegates from other institutions, thetrustees and their spouses, and the officers filed into the Cloister Club for alunch in honor of the honorary degreerecipients whom Mrs. Gray described,in a talk that elicited waves of laughter,as a very satisfactory entering class forthe academic years that stretch out before her.Before 3:30 Hanna and Charles Graywere climbing up into the bell-ringingroom of Mitchell Tower to thank theUniversity Change-Ringing Societywhose members were making the wallsof the tower shake with the melodiousroar of the ten bells. Then it was backdownstairs and into a reception line inthe Hutch where two thousand members of the faculty and their spouses hadgathered fora tumultuous reception thatwent on for two hours. The studentswho had clowned in the morning playedflutes and recorders on the Hutch balcony, uninvited but applauded.The Grays, undaunted, made it homeand then back to a 6:30 reception anddinner in the Reynolds Club attended byone hundred twenty-seven trustees andguests in candlelight. As she walked intothe reception, Mrs. Gray was heard tosay: "I actually managed to sit down fortwenty minutes at home before I cameover here."At 8:30 the one hundred twenty-seven who had been at dinner joinedeight hundred fifty-eight faculty andstudents (who had lined up for first-come-first-serve free tickets two daysbefore) in Mandel Hall to hear a concertby the brass and woodwind sections ofthe Chicago Symphony Orchestra whoplayed superbly and looked resplendentin their white ties and tails.The Friends of the Chicago Symphony, a student group which had sponsored the concert, gave a reception forthe players and the entire audience afterwards in Hutchinson Commons. Inthis audience, some of the complimentscan become so technical that only a fewmusicians feel the full force of them, butMrs. Gray simplified the feelings of thegroup when she said to the greattrumpeter Adolph Herseth, the leaderof the ensemble, "I loved it." Amen.Just after 11:00 the Grays were seenwalking down University Avenue on theway home. It would be more than twelvehours before they had to be in line again,to greet more than one thousand — newstudents, College faculty and staff, officers, and parents at a picnic the President gives for them.Honorary Degree RecipientsDoctor of Humane Letters:Peter R.

JonathanA. Reich has been appointed Public Information Coordinator and his principalduty will be to bring the activities andachievements of more than 2,500undergraduates in the University to theattention of the media.Jonathan Z. Smith, dean of the College, said that "we want to try to letpeople know how interesting, richly varied, and, in a sense, how ordinary andhumane is the life of an undergraduatein this University." The University wasone of the first founded as a researchinstitution of higher learning and thusthe central position of "this small, elitecollege in its midst is sometimes forgotten," Smith said. "On the other hand,"he added, "it is also forgotten too oftenthat undergraduates in the Universitylive in a very unusual student housingsystem, participate in virtually everysport played in the western world andexcel at some of them, and have anenormously varied social and culturallife."Jonathan Reich attended DartmouthCollege, the University of Cincinnati,and has been a student at the ChicagoTheological Seminary for the past year.He has worked in public and communityrelations for nearly a decade. His office atthe University is in Harper MemorialLibrary, the College Center.Now, That's Baroque"baroque/adj (F, fr. It barocco): of, relating to, or having the characteristics of astyle of artistic expression prevalent in the17th century that is marked generally byextravagant forms " Webster's NewCollegiate Dictionary"To delight the eye, the ear and themind," was part of the description of theBaroque festival organized by the University's Extension Division. This collection of music, art, lectures, and film fromOctober 4 through November 27 on thecampus provided a variety of revels forits audience. The music, which includedfanfares and flourishes, madrigals, andconcerts by violin, trumpet, and organ,peaked with a performance of theballet-opera Les Sauvages by Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764), the firstAmerican production.The Smart Gallery presented a collection of engravings of scenes from Shakespeare's plays based on the collectionthat Alderman John Boydell exhibitedin London in 1 789- "The Baroque and Bach gone baroque at the Uni;Everyman," an exhibit showing theeveryday life of the common man, wasthe Regenstein Library's contribution tothe celebration of the era, and at theBergman Gallery, an exhibit of Baroquecalligraphy was on display. The series of"Baroque" films included The ScarletEmpress and Last Year at Marienbad andgenerated considerable comment fromfilm audiences on what might and mightnot be a baroque film."The Baroque: Patterns and Concepts" brought scholars and students together for a five-day conference on theBaroque and that era's exploration ofhumanity. Participants were able tosavor "Rembrandt, the Persians, Von-del, and the Bible," and "Maximilian ofBavaria, Baroque Prince," among otherintellectual delights. Thirteen scholars,most of them guests, made formal presentations.In a sort of delayed grand finale, theUniversity's Extension Division is sponsoring a seventeen-day tour to the heartof Baroque country — Austria and Germany. The tour is from June 14 to 30,1979 and will include visits to Bambergand Regensberg and to monasterychurches of Bavaria — -for example Wies,Weltenburg, and Vierzehnheilegen.Persons interested in joining the tourshould write to the Extension Divisionfor details. ity's Baroque Festival.As a kind of postscript, the land ofBaroque tour ends the Division's considerable tour series. Touts to Mexico,Guatemala, and Peru are scheduled respectively for January 18-30, February8-20, and March 23-April 3. There willbe emphasis on Mayan and Incan archeology, existing temples and junglecities and the hidden fortress city,Machu Picchu, on the Peruvian tour.Those interested in joining any of thetours should write the Extension Division at the University or call them at312-753-3137. Each tour is designed toaccommodate a limited number of participants, and those alumni curiousabout the content of such travels are referred to the description of theMexico-Mayan trip ("ExploringMexico-Mayan Archeology) in the Autumn 1977, University of Chicago Magazine.At the Smart GalleryJanuary 10 through February 25:The Decorative Designs of Frank LloydWright: This exhibition, organized byDavid Hanks for the Renwick Gallery ofthe National Collection of Fine Arts inWashington, D.C., includes seventyexamples of the furniture, leaded glasswindows, ornamental reliefs, urns,14dishes, table cloths, rugs, and fabricswhich Wright designed to complementhis architectural designs.The David and Alfred Smart Gallery islocated on the campus of the Universityat 5550 South Greenwood Avenue.

Fanton is the new Vice President for Academic Resources and Institutional Planning at The University ofChicago. He is centrally involved inUniversity planning and in relating theUniversity's development programs tothat planning. His duties will also include overseeing the work of theAlumni Association staff and theAlumni Fund.On announcing the appointment,President Hanna Gray said, "I am delighted that Jonathan Fanton will bejoining us at Chicago. His wide experience, imagination, and competence willbe invaluable to the University as weundertake the process of planning forthe directions and needs of the future. Ihave a high regard for his understandingof the academic enterprise and its purposes, which he combines with first-rateadministrative skill and energy."Fanton had been associate provost ofYale University. From April 1977 toMay 1978, he was chief executive officerof the Campaign for Yale. He had beenassociate provost and director of the Division of Foundations and Special Projects at Yale since 1976. From 1970 to1973 he was special assistant toKingman Brewster, the president ofYale; and, from 1973 to 1976, heworked in the Yale College dean's officewith responsibility for organizing Yale'sexperimental summer terms. From 1968to 1970 he had been coordinator of Special Education Programs.In 1967 and 1968 he was executiveassistant at Educational Associates Inc., aWashington organization which administered the Upward Bound Program forthe Office of Economic Opportunity.After he received his AB degree fromYale College in 1965, Fanton was aCar-negie Teaching Fellow at Yale for a year,and he has taught history there since1966. He received his M.Phil, degree inhistory from Yale in 1977 and expects toreceive his PhD soon. His field of interest is twentieth century American history. In August, Rudolph Nureyevandthe DutchNational Ballet Company were honoredat an after-performance reception in the IdaNoyes Cloister. Students and faculty attended.Computer CapersSetbacks and disasters! Dwarves attackwith axes and knives, a fearsome snakeguards one hall, and a dragon lurks inanother. Perhaps most disturbing of all,a pirate may suddenly swoop down andsteal all your booty — your gold andsilver, your hard-won emerald "large as aplover's egg," and all the rest — and hideit away in his pirate's chest. This dastardly creature robbed me during myvery first game of Adventure.The Colossal Cave, as it is known, isthe setting for Adventure, a computergame that has swept the University campus since it was first introduced thisyear. The cave is accessible through anyCRT (Cathode Ray Tube) visual displayterminal or DEC writer (Digital Equipment Corporation) terminal (whichtypes out on paper a permanent recordof one's "conversation") on the University's computation systems.The stuff of ancient myths, bedtimetales, and Arthurian legends permeatesthe cave in a curious blend. Here is aworld where one finds described a set ofinterdimensional gateways between theeveryday world and a different sort of"parallel universe" — a vast system ofinterlocking caverns, stuffed with exotictreasures and crawling with dangers. Atroll guards his bridge, demanding atreasure in return for passage (but youcan cheat him). A small plant grows intoa mighty beanstalk when properly lubri cated, and the intrepid Adventurer mustclamber up it. Deep within the cave, asword stands imbedded in a stone waiting for the rightful monarch to removeit.Neophyte or wizard, in Adventure thetime must come when the player eithermeets his doom in the cave — slain by thedwarf's knife or fatal plunge into achasm — or emerges triumphant with thetreasures. At this point the mysterious"X" (presumably residing in theprinted-circuit bowels of a Universitycomputer) who has guided you, obeysyour commands — perhaps even reincarnated you after a nasty fall — tellsyou your score, which may go as high as500 points. But every true Adventurerknows that scores are merest formality:The game's the thing!Adventure may be the favorite campuscomputer game, but it is not the onlygame on hand. DEC users can also playbattle games or enjoy a round oiFootballor Horserace; IBM-370 account holdersmay try their hands at Chess or Rocket (alunar-landing simulation), among others.Why the games? The ComputationCenter surely doesn't encourage students to waste their time . . . and it isprobably true that one's hundredthround of Adventure is somewhat suspectas an educational experience. But gamescan help beginners to shake their dreadof touching the terminals and can beginto dispell the back-of-the-mind uneasiness about "electronic brains" thatblocks so many of us from using computers with confidence.The University's Computation Center,which provides and coordinates accessto computing systems to serve the research, educational, and administrativeneeds of the University, has helped foster wider use of its facilities by steadilyincreasing access to them. Last fall theCenter made available, with fundingfrom the provost, "Get-Acquainted"computer service accounts worth $25.00to any students or $50.00 to any facultymembers who wanted them. TheseGet-Acquainted accounts are not exactlyfree; University money pays for them asa "service" included in tuition fees. Theaccounts must be renewed each quarter,but so far the renewals have not beenlimited.A separate category of instructionalcomputing funds (underwritten by theUniversity) permits faculty members toobtain computer accounts for theirclasses en masse, as well as to developnew ways of demonstrating computeruses to their students. Moreover, facultyand students alike may apply to theirdepartment heads for computer fundsfor research projects. The folks at the15Computation Center just want you to behappy and to use their facilities.What's available with a computer account? Briefly, the Center operates twocomputers, the IBM-370 and a DigitalEquipment Corporation System-20. The370, acquired in 1973 and expected tohave a useful lifetime of ten years, hasfour mega-bytes of 320-nanosecondmemory (so it can handle very largeamounts of data in short time periods),card punches and readers, and a varietyof tape and disc drivers. The machine ismost effective for large "batch" jobs,where you drop in a stack of punchedcards and wait around for results. Witholder computers, the results could takeseveral days; most jobs on the IBM-370have a turnaround time of only ten minutes.The DEC-20, installed last fall, is different. It is, says a computation Centerstaffer, a "friendly system" — not exactlyArtoo Deetoo, perhaps, but then whatis? The DEC-20's best feature is itsinteractive nature: You can ask it questions or alter your program (and theDEC can offer information and tips,often unsolicited) while the program isrunning. The DEC-20 is only foracademic users, and CRTs andDECwriters — not cards — are the solemeans of communication with it.It's midnight but the people at theterminal cluster at Regenstein Libraryare still banging away energetically at themachines that link them to the computers. "What goes on here," I ask,stifling a yawn.Tom, a fourth-year graduate student,tells me he's writing and editing a mathematical paper for his thesis, using thetext-editing program called Wylbur onthe University's IBM-370/168. Anotherstudent is doing a class assignment ineducation (statistics and regressionanalysis) on a DECwriter. Over in onecorner, two students of opposite sexesare playing games — not with eachother — on a CRT.Other groups of terminals, bothDECwriters and CRTs, are dotted aboutThe University of Chicago campus — atPick Hall, Harper Memorial Library, theUniversity Laboratory High School, andtwo Computation Center sites. Visit anyof them, day or night — there are peopleeither working or playing with computers at any available terminal. And thisat a University with no academic computer science department or engineeringschool!Last year Monte Lloyd, a professor inthe biology department, decided to takeadvantage of the instructional-computing funds offered and introduced the infernal machines to his "PopulationBiology" students; computers became arequired part of their classwork.In the Population Biology course,Lloyd lectures on demography,predator-prey systems and population-genetics models. Only simplified problems, or those for which analytical solutions were known, could be consideredbefore, but with their class accounts thestudents could run simulations that mirrored reality much more accurately. Indemography, Lloyd told me, two orthree students designed a program toexamine age distributions in succeedinggenerations when death rates and fecundity depend upon population density(when people die faster and reproduceless because they're all jammed together, for instance).As for predator-prey relationships, ifthe predators kill off all the prey andthen keel over themselves for lack offood, one has an unstable system and anoverly simple model. Translating datainto FORTRAN (a commonly usedcomputer language) from a model Lloydprovided, students produced a programthat indicates when a "stable limit cycle"has been reached in the case of threeplant genotypes (prey) and a populationof grazing animals (the cow as predator).Lloyd says he will keep using thecomputer in his class so that students cancontinue to go beyond the blackboardand "get the answers themselves."Ron Thisted, a statistics professor, isanother of many University faculty whohave incorporated computer use intotheir courses since the additional funding for class computing materialized."Computers are more and more a part ofour lives, a necessary element in a liberaleducation," he says, and the easily available accounts are "wonderful." In class,Thisted emphasizes how to compare anduse software packages — SPSS (StatisticalPackage for the Social Sciences), BMDP(Biomedical Computer Programs) andothers — most effectively. He alsoteaches students to devise and analyzealgorithms for statistical computing procedures.Computer awareness is also part of theUniversity's Laboratory High School. Aquarter of the sophomore mathematicscurriculum at U-High is devoted tocomputing; pupils learn BASIC programming language and investigatemathematical applications involvingcomputers. They can also use terminalsin the physical science classrooms.A chief focus of the computer worldat the Laboratory School is the studentsComputer Club. Members go on fieldtrips, study computer manuals, and undertake a variety of projects. RalphBargen and Dick Muelder, mathematicsteachers at U-High and the club's sponsors this year, say that some studentsthere have built their own computersfrom kits and write their own game programs, which they then get to play fordebugging purposes. One student haswritten his own foreign language translation program with a 500-word vocabulary. Some of the club prodigies haveeven gone on to produce software packages and upgrade game programs for theComputation Center.These accomplishments demonstratean important evolutionary developmentnow going on in society. It has been saidthat those who study the classics havetended to regard the scientific community as illiterate and vulgar, while thescientists have countered that the literatiare abysmally ignorant of the naturalworld and are thus, in a sense, themselves illiterate. Now we see hints of athird great dividing line. Today, most ofus are computer-illiterates, and in futuregenerations, most people will not be.But the Computation Center has eliminated any excuse for computer ignorance. During the academic quarters, itoffers a selection of short, non-creditcourses and seminars in computingtechniques and languages. Peoplewho've never touched a computer intheir lives can get an introduction tocomputer concepts and learn how to usethe machines.So, there is every opportunity to advance our knowledge of computermethods and benefits. The trouble withsuch knowledge is that it may very wellland one in a cluster room at midnight,hunched over a gleaming CRT screen,and play'mgAdventure (which I won withthe aid of some more experiencedplayers) instead of dreaming our owndreams, snug abed. Progress has itsprice. Floyd C. Bennett16The Class of '82 — " We're pretty normal/'The Class of '82. One gets the hangof saying it easily but the surpriselingers. Is it that late already? 1982!Indeed. Only one more class willarrive on campus during the decadeof the seventies. The first-year students here now will be the thirdclass to graduate in the eighties.What are they like? What makesthem tick? Are they different fromprevious classes?To find out, we followed themaround during orientation week,talking with them at their dormitories, at football games, in thePub, or at Jimmy's at night —wherever students gather with timeto reflect and talk.Here then, as viewed through theeyes of just a few of their number isa brief description of the Class of'82.17Angela ElizabethJonesWashington, D.C.People at The University of Chicagowear more glasses than peopleelsewhere, or at least that's the opinion of Angela Elizabeth Jones ofWashington, D.C. She sat in a largelecture hall one day and countedonly two people without them.Angela observes things. She cameto the University because she wantsto learn, and she knew this would bethe right place to be. Society fascinates her — how it works, how itmight be improved. Angela workedfor PUSH in Washington, D.C. whileshe was in school. She saw disproportionate numbers of minorities in jails and prisons because ofcultural difficulties and prejudice. Itupset her, and she decided that todo something about it she must havea solid education.She fears she might lose her driveat the University. Already herstudies occupy much of her time.She has less time than she wouldlike for recreational reading, but shestill finds time to listen to music,which she loves, or to play the in struments she has mastered — piano,oboe, clarinet, and saxophone.Music doesn't represent a careergoal for her but an important andcontinuing part of life.It's just too easy to leave theworld behind when you come here,Angela says. Between school workand the cloistered atmosphere, it'seasy to forget that there's a worldout there with problems. She reminds herself that the educationshe's getting can be applied to solving those problems. The blackcommunity and its welfare remainvery close to her heart.Angela would classify her fellowstudents like this: Some really wantan education for its intrinsic value.They're here to learn and to usewhat they learn because it's worthwhile. The others want to get outand make money. The two groupsfrustrate each other, get in eachother's way. You can prepare for thefuture, she says, but you can't live init — you must live in the present.Larry NeubauerDowner's GroveAnother who wants to improve society is Larry Neubauer, a graduateof Downer's Grove South HighSchool in Chicago's southwesternsuburbs. He hopes to become an attorney and enter politics and government. It seems to him that government should be oriented to thepeople and their needs. In fact, he says, it would be neat to have a campus group that would work off campus to influence people to makeneeded changes.But the really important thing inlife is self-satisfaction. Doing whatyou like to do, whether a high income follows or not, seems to Larrythe key to right living. And he rejects the notion that his is a self-centered generation. "Do what youcan for society," he says.The University of Chicago impresses him with the sheer quantityof things to do. Many activitiescompete for his attention. He findshis fellow students friendly, open toone another, and fun to be with.He's playing intramural football forhis house. The fellows in FishbeinHouse in the Shoreland dorm enjoyplaying, are keen on the intramuralcompetition. In Larry's view, athletics are an accepted and valued partof life at the University, though henever thought of himself as anathlete.That's one of the things he valuesabout The University of Chicago —that it has a way of merging orblending people and experiences.Thus the football cheer X squared, Ysquared, HiSOt! But while he enjoyssports, the wealth of activities, andhis fellow students here, his focusremains clear. "I want the world tobe a better place," Larry says. "It'stime politics helped."Joe MullenChicago18Joe Mullen, like Larry Neubauer,appreciates the mix of people andactivities. He came here to playfootball.People laugh when he tells themthat. Chicago isn't usually thought ofas a football school. And that's justthe point, he says. Joe went toMarist High, a Catholic school inChicago's south neighborhood ofBeverly. At Marist he compiled agood academic record and learnedto love football. But he's not reallybig enough to play at a Big Tenschool. He remembers being verydepressed at times in his senior year,realizing he would have to give upthe game.And then Chicago beckoned, withits NCAA division III football team,and the chance to get a first-rateeducation and still have some challenging football competition."My father was big on the place,"Joe says. "He's a cop for the city ofChicago. He works this district,where the University is, and he kepttelling me I ought to come here.After I visited the place, I agreedwith him." Joe is one of five winnersthis year of a special scholarshipestablished by the University forchildren of Chicago police and firemen."I'm proud of my dad," Joe says."I respect him, and I listen to whathe says." One of the things he says isthat Joe ought to be his own boss,and Joe expects that would be betterthan taking orders from others. Hisdream is to be a small businessman,to open his own place, maybe a restaurant. And so he plans to major ineconomics and enter the BusinessSchool under the professional option program. That will give him aAB and an MBA in five years, andthen he'll go into business."That's why grades matter to me,"Joe admits. "I've got to do well inorder to get ahead." He feels confident he can, and he's glad to be atthe University. "I was worried aboutthe social life," he says. He hopedpeople would turn out not to beclosed, that there would be friends, and good times to share with them.So far he has not been disappointed.Joe PierriChicagoIn fact, that's one of the things thatcharacterize this class: they're notdisappointed or expecting to be disappointed. There's little of thegrumbling and griping that has oftenbeen a theme of freshman reactionin past years. Instead, the Class of'82 harbors an infectious optimismand cheerfulness."Orientation Week was reallyfun," says Joe Pierri, from St. Laurence High School on Chicago'ssouthwest side, and like Joe Mullen,a varsity football player. "Staying upall night, meeting people. They'refun, they're smart, they have a lot ofdifferent qualities." Since Orientation Week has ended, he finds theothers a real help: "I can be withthem and forget about school for awhile."Also like Joe Mullen he's glad thesports program gives him the chanceto play. "I have absolutely no time," he says. "It's library, classes, footballpractice, eat, do my homework, andoff to bed, and then start all overwith the library." But he smileswhile he groans. "I really like it," heconfesses. "It's great to be on theteam. I always played to win. Myhigh school had a good record. HereI like it because of the closeness ofthe team. We hold hands in thehuddle. There's sense of unity, ofcooperation that's really inspiring. Ithurts me that others can't share thesame things, because we play as ateam, we pull for each other."He doesn't see his class as verypolitical. "People just don't caremuch about politics," he says, "evencampus issues. The activists are outthere handing out leaflets, but mostpeople just throw the leaflets away."It's not that they don't care, however, but that people are absorbedin what they came here to do. Andfor Joe that's pursuing his owninterest — possibly social work. Hefeels you have to be somewhatmaterialistic to have come here inthe first place. But Joe's own interestis helping other people.Katherine GriffithCambridgeu mm W19It's just that kind of diversity andenergy that turns these people on.Katherine Griffith comes fromBelmont High School, Cambridge,Massachusetts. "There are thesepeople here from my high school,"she says, "and we're all different."She spent the first week being tense,nervous about what it would be like,whether she'd make friends or not."Then I loosened up," she says, "andmade a million friends." And shebreaks into a sunny grin.Like others in her class, she findsthis friendliness and openness to bea prime characteristic. "I went to theshower one night at seven-thirty,but I didn't make it back to my roomuntil one o'clock in the morning. Myclassmates have strong interests, andthey're interesting to talk to. Lifedoesn't bore them, as it did so manykids back in high school."Kat certainly wasn't bored. Athome she participated as a volunteerin two mental health hotlines, andshe expects to be very active atChicago. "I joined the MedicalCommittee on Human Rights," shesays. "There are only seven or eightof us right now, yet we want to goout and make things better. So we'llstart small, invite some speakers.You can't do much without somemoney."She intends to have fun, too. "Ihave fun with people," she says,"and I find they broaden my interests. For example, I came likingevery kind of music except jazz. ButI have a friend here who has turnedme on to it, and now I find I like it,too. I'm trying lots of clubs: gymnastics, volleyball, the Blue Gargoyle [astudent-run lunchroom serving vegetarian fare], Friends of the Symphony, a DOC films pass, and theBaroque Festival."Kat agrees that to do what interests you is most important. This istrue both in and out of school "Idon't freak out over C's" she says,"although I don't plan to get many.I've been focussing on dabbling. Iwant to explore the options now andthen make choices. I lean more to what interests me than to materialsuccess. For example, I cleanedhouses for sixty hours a week tomake money to go to Europe. Thatwas okay. The main thing was going."Mike LichterEvanstonMike Lichter might say the mainthing is doing. He's from EvanstonTownship High School in Evanston,on Chicago's north shore, and callshimself a hedonist. "What I want todo with my life is whatever makesme feel good," he says. "I might livein the woods and be a hermit. I'mpretty self-contained. I like to be myown person; I don't like being toldwhat to do."But it's not social surliness thathas Mike considering hermitry. Heenjoys people and makes friendseasily. "There's never a dull momenthere," he says. "Of course it was allfun, at first, but now it's starting tobe work." That worries him a little.But he may not have time toworry — he's too busy. He's alreadylanded a part in a Court Theatreproduction on campus."Another student told me aboutthe play and suggested I try out forit," Mike explains with a shrug. "So Idid, and I made it. And I'm enjoying it. But what I really like here are themany different points of view andthe chance we have here to encounter them. This is true outsideclass and in class, too.""For instance, I'm reading Marx,"he continues. "Now Marx is reallycool. But after that I'll read others.And I'll compare them. SometimeI'll be able to say, 'Hey, this is what Ibelieve in!' I'm open to whatevercomes. The main thing is I want todo something practical with my life.In school I'm leaning toward history, a history major. But I'm alsoconsidering social science, economics."Mike finds his fellow students anever-ending source of fascination."The seniors — I enjoy them," helaughs. "Their personalities arestrange. There's one guy on my floorwho's a Russian major. He walksaround the dorm mumbling in Russian. But my class — the Class of'82 — we're different. We're prettynormal."The Class of '82Self-assured, sociable, and broad inoutlook — these traits perhaps bestdescribe the character of the Classof '82. Here on campus many students have remarked on how physically attractive the men and womenof the new class seem. It may be asign that they care about how theylook and take care of themselves.But they are not selfish. Altruismand social concern is alive and wellamong them, though it doesn't dominate their ethos as it did a decadeago. They are pragmatic in orientation without being crassly materialistic. They have been mislabeledthe ME generation — they are the USgeneration.Jonathan Reich is the Public Information coordinator in the College.20THE MARCH ON WASHINGTONTHE TET OFFENSIVELBJ'S ABDICATIONMARTIN LUTHER KING ASSASSINATEDWORLD-WIDE STRIKE FOR PEACESTUDENTS SHUT DOWN COLUMBIAROBERT KENNEDY KILLEDDEMOCRATIC CONVENTION RIOTSEach event carried enoughemotional force to dominatethe news in any ordinary year.Yet all eight of the aboveevents occurred within ninetumultous months of oneextraordinary year; a yearthat current social historiansare sifting through as avidly asexplorers at some archaeological site.21Unlike the residents of Pompeii, thesurvivors of 1968 are not buriedunder centuries of volcanic ash. Instead, the members of that University class have graduated and movedon, leaving us with the questions:Where have they gone, what are theydoing, what are they thinking, andhow have they changed?This writer asked himself thosequestions over a year ago. With theinvaluable help of Anita Sandke, director of the Office of Career Counseling and Placement, whose deathearlier this year saddened the University community and legions ofalumni, the 405 members of theCollege Class of 1968 were contacted. A remarkable fifty percentresponded to a call to tell us aboutthemselves and their lives duringthe past decade.The response rate was perhaps sohigh because the vast majority ofgraduates, like the rest of the society, were themselves sleepwalkersthrough that violent year. Besideswanting to say hello to long-lostfriends, compare notes, and settle afew scores, they too seemed to wantanswers.The questionnaire served as thebest means of exchange. While theyhad changed and lost contact, theUniversity remained a steady reference point.In one sense, I became the classhistorian, weaving a collective account from many individual stories.Yet the experience possessed itsown transforming quality. Alumni,not knowing the ultimate reader oftheir remarks, frequently bypassedthe formal "just the facts" approachof the survey to pour their innermostfeelings onto a page.At times, I was torn betweenlooking away and murmuring a quiet"thank you" for being permitted to The College"When I chose Chicago early in 1964 I chose it because Ithought it was about as difficult a college as I could handle andbecause of its strong emphasis on general education. Chicagomet my expectations. I also liked it because of the large proportion of graduate students (much larger than at any other university I know of). I didn't go there to have fun, but to rise tochallenges. I was in classes with graduate students starting inmy second year. My goal is to keep pushing for about threemore years and get one last promotion. That would be to ameteorologist-in-charge job at a large forecast office. After thatI want to settle down and get married. Ten years of hustling isenough." T.F., Anchorage, Alaska."I do feel that when I attended the University in the sixties, toolittle emphasis was placed on pragmatic goals. If I were doing itall over again today, I might seriously consider engineering orsome other more realistic, work-a-day sort of occupation. Iwould say, in fact, that in some ways my experience as a blue-collar hippie-worker in California contributed more to my education and progress toward maturity than did my years inChicago, where it was all too easy for those yet malleable to slipinto strange and unregenerate byways. Perhaps it was thepeculiar climate of the middle sixties — part psychodrama, partrevolution — that fostered our aberrations from the true path.At any rate, I doubt that I would wish to repeat my Chicagoepoch." S.B., Urbana, Illinois."I am both proud of and troubled by my years at the University. I gained much intellectually that I continue to dependon — information, ideas, and sound reasoning processes. Thedeath of one of my closest friends, Roy Guttman, continues tohaunt me, though. Awful in its own right, the accident was alsosymptomatic of the tense, violent duality between ideas andreality many of us lived while at the University in the mid-1960s." E.H., Gresham, Oregon.22The Light Side"One of the greatest disappointments in my life is the thoughtthat I'm in about the 25th grade and still ain't so smart. One ofthose great moments came when I realized I could live with theabove fact." -J.M. C, St. Louis, Missouri."My first year at UC had two long-lasting effects: A) WheneverI see a clock at 4:45 PM, I become hungry since that is whenBurton-Judson started serving dinner. B) Up until last year, Iassociated the Art Institute with HUMANITIES I and I couldn'tbear to go in. I have finally recovered." CM., Chicago, Illinois.Doubt and Divorce"Raising children and being supportive of my husbandthroughout his years in medical school and five years of post-MD training have made it near impossible for me to pursue mypersonal goals. I consider my job as mother extremely important in raising creative, bright, and happy children . . . and itappears we are succeeding. Nonetheless, I am your typical,extremely frustrated, and disappointed woman who contemplates leaving home for the purpose of living life for herself. I am contemplating becoming an accountant. But I reallydon't know what to do at this time in my life. Does your office(Career Counseling and Placement) help thirty-one-year-oldalumni?" L.S., Aurora, Colorado."I was one of the few people I knew and liked who graduatedafter four years. Most of my friends dropped out or took sixyears. I feel that fellow alums are special people. They think,have awry sense of humor about the craziness of today's world,and strive for excellence. I delayed returning this questionnairebecause when it arrived, my marriage was splitting. It is hard towrite about achievements when one feels like a failure. Rightnow, the major element in my life is change. I live one week ata time, trying to sort out priorities, learning to believe in myselfagain. I know I can survive, but I want more than that. I want tolive with joy." D. C, River Forest, Illinois. share in personal accounts of hope,fear, triumph, and loss. To thosereaders from the Class of '68, I amsimply the medium through whichyour cries, whispers, humor, andwisdom are transmitted to your scattered classmates.How is 1978 different from 1968?One tires of hearing the repeatedmoanings about the current grimpursuit of grades, the concern withcareer, the apotheosis of apathy. It istrue that America ten years ago wasnot the land of the MBA. Rather thandropping anchor in the channels of acareer, the graduates that year weredropping acid and dropping out.The comment of one alumnus,who taught elementary school forsix years in Washington, D.C. andthen returned to the University for alaw degree, provides an indirect butrevealing clue on the difference:"Off and on during those years, Iplayed saxaphone with a soul bandwhich never quite got off theground. Unfortunately, the dayshave passed when you could getaway with knowing only one songand varying the tempo."Life in the late sixties, in retrospect, does appear like one song,played in endless variations. Thatwill no longer do. There is much lesscertainty today. Life is complexagain.A note of resignation runsthrough several of the responses.The common theme is that one mustmake one's peace with life. As onealumnus said, "Life isn't all thatwonderful but I'll hang onto it tillsomething else comes along." Forthis generation, active involvementhas seemingly died. They rarelymention working to make something happen. Instead, they will waitfor "something better to comealong."Ten years ago, the major reality inmany students' lives was the draft.23Today, the capital letter "D" forthirty-year-old alumni stands for-doubt and divorce. Rather thanleaving the country, the air is nowfilled with talk of leaving home.I am grateful to the graduates whoshared very personal glimpses intotheir lives. And I was jolted by acomment from M.N. of Morgan-town, West Virginia, who said of herundergraduate years, "Trying to getan education at the College of TheUniversity of Chicago is like tryingto get a drink of water out of a hydrant. It's there, but the pressurecan blow your head off."Perhaps the best way to gauge justhow the times have changed fromthat earlier year is to listen to othercomments from the '68 class. Thevoices that follow reveal conflictingmoods of gratitude mixed with resentment, of personal striving, ofbattling despair, of humor juxtaposed with seriousness. Do notseek consistency or an unbrokenstream of "happy talk." These arethe sounds of our colleagues grappling with the business of living andthe hard search for meaning in theirlives.While over two hundred alumni responded, another two hundred remain"lost." If you wish to be placed in touchwith a classmate, write to the AlumniAssociation and we shall (if we havethe information) provide you with thename and address of someone withwhom you wish to be reunited. If youare one of the "lost," we ask that you dothe same. Perhaps someone you want tohear from may be asking for yourcurrent whereabouts.Tom Mullaney, AM' 68, is director ofthe Office of Public Information, TheUniversity of Chicago. On Reaching Thirty'Ten years have included many changes. I shudder to think ofhow I would have adapted had I not been trained to think andhad I not been made aware of my own thoughts. I rememberdealing with the draft, making a profession, dealing with bothpersonal disasters and good events. It really is true that all thatliberal education helped me. I have often thought that I shouldwrite Professor Weintraub, who taught me Western Civilization. I did not do very well in the course and it was in no wayrelevant to my major, but it was the most valuable course Itook. And that man remains a model to me on how to thinkwell .... Ten years and I'm still broke. I mean really broke.There is a shiny 75 Kawasaki KZ400 motorcycle I own, a rusty'68 Dodge Dart, and that is the sum of my personal wealth.Staying in academia has its rewards, but it sure has drawbackstoo. I could say the same in reverse order for choosing how tolive one's life — which is one of the better legacies of a goodliberal education. It has its drawbacks but it sure has its rewards. That sounds a bit sentimental to me, but I am willing tolive with it." P.D., Grinnell, Iowa."I have since found to my surprise that the vita contemplativa isnot the only civilized life; that scholars are not the only peoplewho have minds and use them to go and satisfying effect; andthat it is not always a sin to put down a book in favor of a tennisracquet or a run on the beach. It may be that a touch of intellectual arrogance is necessary for maintaining that kind ofatmosphere that we breathed at The University of Chicago. Ido know, for all the criticism, that I would not change theeducation that I got for any other — and I entered as a particularly broken-hearted Harvard reject. As for what my life turnsout to be like at thirty: I do editing and book design for a living,mostly of science textbooks. I have written some children'sverse and humorous (I hope) verse for adults, a number ofstories, and a quarter or so of a novel that I will never finish.I'm eager to have time to start on the next. I play music withfriends. I read nineteenth century novels. I play an enthusiasticand mediocre game of tennis. I find that I'm more interested inpsychological issues these days than philosophical ones. I hangout with a neat lady psychologist. I like to cook — especiallyPeking duck. I have two cats.

Carter, AM' 5 5Columbus, OhioInspirationOf special interest to me were the articles by J. D. Hess and David Backusabout Nitze, Dargan, and Vigneron. Istudied under them in the 20s and 30sand when I returned to campus in 1937to study for my master's degree inFrench. These professors were giants intheir fields along with Mr. Parmenter,Mr. David, Mr. Coleman, and BernardWeinberg. Such an inspiring period itwas. Thank you.Katherine A. Jensen, PhB'21, AM'38Chicago, IllinoisThe Formidable "One Other"Thank you for the recent article onRobert Vigneron. It was the occasion forsome very Proust-like reminiscences. Iwas privileged to study with Mr. Vigneron from 1958-60. His mastery of the French language and literature and ofthe techniques of research certainly provided a superb and rare opportunity forhis students.I can well remember shedding tears inclass, to the embarrassment of all, as Istruggled to give the required "Explication de texte;" but I can remember thevictory of earning a few "A's" as well. Ican remember groaning under therigorous yoke of the eternal note cards;his lectures were given from cards andhe expected the same of his students —but I can remember the delight of listening to his off-the-cuff comments onStendhal and Proust.Mr. Vigneron had the reputation ofbeing something of a tyrant; he could beboth kindly and witty. It really disappointed him when his students were not"equal to the task." He had something ofthe look of an old-fashioned "this-hurts-me-more-than-it-hurts you" variety of parent. I agree with the commentthat Vigneron was loyal and expectedloyalty. I suspect he was disappointedthat I "gave up the fight," and nevercompleted those (infernal) course papers. As my husband aptly suggestedonce, when he saw me surrounded bymy stacks of research cards, I had something of the forsaken and forlorn look ofthe miller's daughter, prisoner to herfather's fib, wondering how she was everto spin the straw into gold. . . .Mr. Vigneron received his formalacademic training in an age which placedgreat value in science, the scientificmethod, and rationalism. . . . (He) was aman of great virtuosity. It is good, now,to pause and express my gratitude tohim for his personal kindness, for hisscholarship and for his fidelity to his taskas he saw it.Loretta D'Agostino SchmitzSacramento, CaliforniaCreditsInauguration photographs: MichaelShieldsRudolph Nureyev photograph: MichaelShieldsClass of '82 photographs: JonathanReichCover photograph: Joel SnyderArt direction: Paula S. Ausick34ALUMNI FUND ANNUAL REPORTDear Friends:The twelve months since my last report to you have been very eventful ones.Hanna Holborn Gray was elected the tenth President of The University ofChicago, and began her term of office on July 1. The Henry Crown Field Housewas dedicated last November, and has since been used by thousands of University students, faculty, and staff. On June 30, the University completed its secondconsecutive year with a balanced budget.As of this writing, the new school year is less than one month old, but there isalready much good news to report. This year's freshman class is the largest in thepast eleven years. Mrs. Gray was formally inaugurated in Rockefeller Chapel onOctober 6. Less than two weeks later, Herbert Simon, AB'39, PhD' 43, became theforty-third person with University of Chicago affiliations to receive the NobelPrize.The preceding twelve months have been good ones for the Alumni Fund aswell. The Year of the Campaign for Chicago brought in more money than anyprevious annual drive. Alumni responded to our appeal for increased gifts ingreat numbers. Nearly 100 alumni joined the President's Fund for the first timewith gifts of $1000 or more. Over 1000 alumni increased their gifts up to theCentury Fund level ($100 or more), and many long-time Century Fund membersincreased their gifts still more.The Alumni Fund, through your generosity, is able to contribute significantlyto the life and work of The University of Chicago. This report is published todocument and celebrate the generosity of the University's alumni in providingunrestricted annual support for their alma mater, and to recognize the manydedicated alumni who worked tirelessly as volunteers on last year's campaign.Emmett Dedmon, ab'39National ChairmanAlumni Fund Giving, 1977-78 Donors DollarsAlumni 10,290 1,048,058, yjkiends 294 295,802THE 1978-79 ALUMNI FUNDDOLLARS, DONORS, AND THE UNIVERSITYTo do its part to keep the University strong, the Alumni Fund will have to secure increasedcontributions from many of its current donors and first time gifts from among the thousands ofnon-donors.Mrs. Gray has stressed that the scarcity of financial resources is one of the main problemsfacing her administration. The kind of education you received at Chicago is an expensive commodity, and is becoming even more so. Like all private universities, The University of Chicagolooks to its alumni for help to provide for future generations what was provided for them. Thereare many ways for you to help.The President's Fund (gifts of $1000 or more). This year, the Joyce Foundation has pledged tomatch any new gift to the President's Fund or any $1000 increase by a current member. Your giftat this level can help the University qualify for the entire $100,000 which the foundation hasoffered as matching funds.The Century Fund (gifts of $100 or more). The Century Fund seeks to bring in new members,and secure increased gifts from many of its current members, to follow up on last year's recordperformance.The General Fund. Not all alumni can afford a gift at the President's Fund or Century Fundlevel, but certainly, if one feels that the Chicago educational experience is worth perpetuating,one should be able to invest something to insure its future. Roughly three out of four alumni whoread this did not give last year. This is a record we must improve. The years of the Grayadministration can be years of great achievement for the University, unless lack of sufficientfunds becomes a limiting factor. The business of supporting the University is the business of allalumni. Please share in the work of The University of Chicago by contributing to the AlumniFund in 1978-79. Thank You.rv V.

These unrestricted funds are given by alumni andfriends of the University, personally or through family foundations. Gifts from corporations whichmatch employees' contributions are also received and counted in the Alumni Fund totals. Allmonies counted in Alumni Fund totals are totally unrestricted or restricted only as to area (i.e.College, Physical Sciences, Library, etc.).These totals do not include money contributed to the Graduate School of Business AlumniFund, the Fund for the Law School, the Medical Center Alumni Fund, and the School of SocialService Administration Alumni Fund. Also not included are gifts restricted for specific purposessuch as special scholarship funds, research projects, or professorships.Two gift categories exist within the Alumni Fund which deserve special mention:The President's Fund was introduced in 1964 as the highest level of the Alumni Fund.President's Fund members, who give $1,000 or more annually, provide an important share of thetotal of unrestricted dollars the University receives.The Century Fund was highlighted last year, when all alumni were asked to consider joiningthe Fund with a gift of $100 or more. The tremendous response resulted in a fifty percent increasein donors and a thirty-seven percent increase in dollars over last year.Two years ago, the Alumni Fund switched to an academic year calendar. Annual drives arelaunched July 1 and conclude June 30 of the following year. For comparative purposes, we havelisted below the results of the last three Alumni Fund drives: academic years 1977-78 and1976-77, and calendar year 1975. We first list the Alumni Fund and then two of its majorcomponents: The President's Fund and the Century Fund.THE ALUMNI FUNDAcademic Year Academic Year Calendar Year1977-78 1976-77 1975Donors Dollars Donors Dollars Donors DollarsAlumni 10,290 $1,048,058 9,838 $ 876,013 10,529 $ 937,385Friends 294 295,802 318 340,895 271 188,458Corporate Matching 79,375 47,225 41,508Total 10,584 $1,423,235 10,156 $1,264,133 10,800 $1,167,351Two Major ComponentsAcademic Year Academic Year Calendar Year1977-78 1976-77 1975Donors Dollars Donors Dollars Donors DollarsThe President's Fund 382 $ 835,680 353 $ 801,134 363 $ 582,449The Century Fund 2,695 381,797 1,789 279,533 1,921 342,53637PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLALUMNI FUNDSGRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESSALUMNI FUND1977 1976 1975Total Dollars: $484,568 $411,151 $424,064Number of Donors: 3,453 2,865 3,308The Twentieth Annual Fund for the Graduate School of Business attracted unprecedented support from the School's alumni and friends. The Fund's dollar and donor totals surpassed allprevious marks. Alumni participation reached 22% as 604 donors made first-time gifts to theSchool.The Dean's Funds supplied the major impetus for the 1977 campaign. This group's $1,000+gifts totaled $210,671, an increase of 29% over the preceding year. Membership reached 104,including 15 donors new to the Dean's Fund.The Company Groups Program extended its record of success. Volunteers at 116 firms added$146,621 to the Fund, up 25% over 1976 and nearly doubled the $75,543 raised by the Program's78 member companies in 1975. Within the Program alumni participation averaged a strong 35%.The 1977 Alumni Fund is a tribute to the loyalty of the School's graduates and friends. Asvoluntary support has helped the School to its present eminence, so the success of the 1977 Fundpromises greater distinction to come. With the ongoing support of those who gave so generouslythis past year that promise will be realized.George G.

Gifts during the year from alumni and friendstotaled $715,915, the largest amount ever reported. Of this, $111,612 were unrestricted contributions, $54,695 were for student aid, and $549,608 were restricted gifts. Included under restricted gifts were bequests of $403,090 and 50th Anniversary gifts of $79,166. Alumni participation was 32%.This report is an endorsement of Robert B. Uretz's appointment as Dean of the Division of theBiological Sciences and The Pritzker School of Medicine. Dr. Joseph Skom, '52, 1978-79 President of the Medical Alumni Association, joins me in acknowledging the generosity of our donorsand urging all alumni of the Division and of the Medical School to support the 1978 MedicalCenter Alumni Fund.Charles P.

Theresponse was splendid, as the generosity of graduates and friends of the School brought the 1977Fund over the $500,000 mark.The Fund for the Law School is a most critical source of unrestricted funds. Such supportlessens the gap between the School's fiscal requirements and other available resources. It is anecessary assistance in fulfilling the School's distinctive role in legal education: one that is bothfar-reaching and of substantial cost.Each contributor to the 1977 Fund for the Law School is an important figure in this effort. Tothe many workers who brought the message to their fellow graduates we are indeed grateful. Theability of distinguished private institutions like The University of Chicago to survive and flourishcontinues to be severely tested. Let us share together in the responsibility to ensure the LawSchool receives the support to sustain and nurture its traditions and commitments.Kenneth C. Prince, JD'34Daniel C. Smith, jd'40Ronald J.

We realized it would be difficult to attain the level of giving reached during the two yearswhen we had the Anderson Challenge Fund, which proved to be a real incentive to our alumni.We take great pride in the generous support of the alumni. A nationwide organization conducted personal solicitations in some forty cities. The dedication of these alumni illustrates theirsense of commitment to our School.It is a pleasure to thank all our donors. It has indeed been so gratifying for me to serve asnational chairman. I have great faith in the future growth of the School, and continued alumnisupport.Alton A. Linford, am'38, PhD'47Dean EmeritusNational ChairmanSSA Alumni Fund, 197739ANNUAL GIVING VOLUNTEERACTIVITYVolunteers make the Annual Giving Program work. Every year, they use their time and energy toseek support from their fellow alumni. The personal touch they put into the job, the thoughtful-ness and the creativity by which they transmit their enthusiasm for the University, are of immeasurable help to the Alumni Fund.Most cities have their own individual volunteer committees. Often, especially in larger cities,the committees are organized according to the size of the gift sought. President's Fund volunteerswork throughout the year to raise gifts of $1000 or more. Century Fund volunteers primarilycontact past donors to seek their support, usually at the level of $100 or more. In the spring, atphonathons around the country, volunteers gather together to contact all alumni in their city whohave yet to contribute. Their goal is to bring in a contribution from each alumnus or alumna.Sometimes, the results of volunteer efforts are obvious, as when a city with a new volunteerorganization gets 50% more donors than it has ever had before. At other times, the benefits of astrong volunteer force are best seen over time. The Fund's steady growth in both dollars anddonors over the years can be ascribed directly to hard work by volunteers and their committees.At the heart of the volunteer structure is the National Alumni Fund Board, composed of thecity chairmen of each of the Alumni Fund's local committees, and the President's Fund chairmenfrom the larger cities. The Board meets on campus every year to review the Fund's progress andto help plan future activities. Then, each Board member returns to his or her community to directlocal solicitation efforts.This year's Fund Board Conference, held during the last weekend in September, featured theactive participation of President Gray, and included reports from current students for the firsttime. In addition, workshop sessions provided volunteers with a forum to discuss questions aboutthe University, and to exchange productive ideas among themselves.The Executive Committee of the National Alumni Fund Board meets every spring to considerand make recommendations to the Fund Board at large on major policy questions which have longterm impact on the Alumni Fund. In addition to the National Chairman of the Alumni Fund, themembership includes the Chairman of the President's Fund, city chairmen for Chicago, LosAngeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. (where the University has its largestconcentrations of alumni), and representatives from other regions of the country.This broadly representative Executive Committee keeps in close touch with all segments of thealumni and serves as the liaison between the University and its volunteer groups.We list below the current and life members of the National Alumni Fund Board with deepappreciation for their valuable contribution to the University.THE NATIONAL ALUMNI FUND BOARD1978-79 MembershipNATIONAL CHAIRMAN EMMETT DEDMON, AB'39Executive CommitteeRoland E.
