Undergraduate tuition will be raised from$4,095 to $4,500, graduate tuition from$4,305 to $4,740, divinity and libraryschool tuition from $4,245 to $4,665,medical school tuition $4,380 to $4,965.In the law school, tuition will jump from$4,800 to $5,460, and in the businessschool, from $4,875 to $4,550.Charles D. O'Connell, University vicepresident and dean of students, indicated that to help financially needystudents, unrestricted student aid fromthe University's operating budget wouldbe increased by over ten percent, from$5.4 million to $6 million. In addition,O'Connell noted, students will continueto have the benefit of about $2 million inendowed student aid. He said that up totwenty percent more in federal and statescholarships is likely to be available toneedy undergraduates next school year.Room and board fees in the University's residence halls will also be raisedfor 1979-80. A freshman will pay$2,540 for full room and board, an increase from $2,310 in 1978-79-Sandmel First Helen A.Regenstein ProfessorSamuel Sandmel is the first Helen A.Regenstein Professor of Religion in theDivinity School. He was professor ofBible and Hellenistic Literature andformer provost and director of GraduateStudies at Hebrew Union College inCincinnati.The new professorship wasestablished by a grant from the Josephand Helen Regenstein Foundation tobring Sandmel to the University, according to Joseph M. Kitagawa, professorand dean of the Divinity School and pro fessor in the Department of Far EasternLanguages and Civilizations.Sandmel, a specialist in New Testament literature, particularly in its relation to Judaism, was general editor ofthe Oxford Study Edition of The NewEnglish Bible. His books include AJewish U nderstanding of the New Testament, The Hebrew Scriptures, Herod:Profile of a Tyrant, and The Enjoyment ofScripture. Oxford University Press willpublish his work on Philo of Alexandriathis year.Sandmel has been a visiting professorat the University of Chicago and at several European institutions, including theLeo Baeck College in London, where hewas Honorary Visiting Principal in1968-69- He is also a former presidentof the Society of Biblical Literature.A native of Dayton, Ohio, he receivedhis AB from the University of Missouriand his PhD from Yale. He is a graduateof Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati,where he was ordained in 1937. He hadserved on its faculty since 1952.On the Road for The U of CIn June 1982 some five hundred younggraduates will file into RockefellerMemorial Chapel wearing the variousexpressions with which most humansgreet moments of transcendent importance, boredom, anticipation,quietude, joy. Probably their thoughtsrange far beyond the quiet rustlingsounds that precede a University ofChicago convocation.Independent of such ambiance, but apart of each graduate's immediate history, is a chain of events that broughtthese fledgling doctors, teachers,lawyers, and citizens of the world to theUniversity. In 1977 these graduateswere hurrying through the rounds as signed to high school seniors: SATs,ACTs, achievement tests, hand-cramping forms to fill out, campus visits,interviews. They probably did not noticea crisply dressed young man with briefcase striding through the halls towardthe counselor's office, though some ofthem did eventually speak with him,squirming a bit under his insistent questions. Some never met him.The University of Chicago admissionsofficers — there are eight — have an important task: marketing the Universitythroughout high schools of the UnitedStates. They crisscross the country inplanes and in rented cars, sleeping in thepolyurethane splendor of motel chains,eating enough fast foods to destroyweaker digestive tracts.Informational materials in hand,week-long schedules on the dashboard,they turn onto the paved landscapeswhere America's young begin to passfrom adolescence to adulthood: the highschool compounds which, to the casualobserver, fade into interchangeability.Such University admissions officers asLuther Rollins, AB'76, and MichaelWalker, AB'72, are not casual observers,however. As they walk down schoolhalls to the counselors' offices, they arementally noting posters, informationsigns, bulletin boards, responses of students, the art work, even locker arrangements to gather what might becalled an individual-excellence index: Isthis a nurturing environment for a student who would flourish at The University of Chicago?Near the counselor's office thescrutiny becomes more specific. Whichare the favored colleges that rate starstatus in the form of pennants? What isthe balance of private to public institutions represented in the catalog information racks? How available to thestudents in this information? Is the University of Chicago represented? Arethere many out-of-state schools? Howmany are private liberal arts colleges?The counselor's arrival ends the inspection and, if this is a first visit, admissions officer and counselor begin hunting for the common denominator: students. The route is circuitous, and, according to the admissions officers whosetracks we are following, often one mustfirst penetrate the cloud of fallacies thatsurround the University of Chicago.On two bright days last November,Rollins and Walker encountered the twomost common misconceptions about theUniversity:Counselor: We are a walk-to highschool, as opposed to the outlying highschools where students can afford to2drive. So, I don't think you'll find manystudents here who can afford to go tothe University of Chicago.WALKER: We're still in the positionof looking for students first, and lookingat their financial resources afterward.We do not select schools to visit on thebasis of an economic index. Some of thecriteria we use are the number of National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists aschool has; schools that have sent students to the University in the past;schools that have a traditional connection with the University, such as facultymembers who are alumni or friends ofthe College; and schools where studentshave indicated interest in the College byreturning information flyers sent tomany of those who take the PreliminaryScholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) forcollege-bound juniors.Counselor: What about thisimage of the University of Chicagobeing in the middle of a ghetto whereyou step in and are never seen or heardfrom again?Walker: (Showing him a map ofthe city and pointing out the Universitylocation.) We're just west of theMuseum of Science and Industry andnot far from the lake. I live in HydePark, which is where the University islocated, and I do not feel unsafe. I don'thave a car, and I take public transportation everywhere. There was good reasonto worry about personal safety in the late50s and early 60s. In fact, a number ofpeople feared that the University's existence was in jeopardy, and some seriously suggested that the Universitymove. It didn't. Instead, it spearheadedone of the first and one of the few successful urban renewal projects in thecountry. Today, the University is a safeplace to work and study, and Hyde Parkhas one of the lowest crime rates forneighborhoods in Chicago.The misconceptions are enunciated,they are correctable, they are corrected.Such attitudes tend to make the luggageheavier and the miles longer for Rollinsand Walker. And then there are thecounselors, the principals, and certain ofthe students who have placed educationon the consumer shelf, its worth to beassessed in terms of immediately marketable skills."Half of our top students are seekingskill development, not education. Theysee themselves as electrical engineers.They are in a middle-income group thatdoes not qualify for federal aid. Andthat's the way it is," said one counselorin a suburban high school near Milwaukee. It is an area which, he noted,was rich in residents who are teachers. In a special visit, the University Laboratory School first grade class presentedPresident Hanna Gray with an inauguration collage. The class project grew fromthe students' fascination with the October inauguration procession. Mrs. Gray,describing the gift, said, "It covers half of my office and it has a rather smallperson labeled 'President' and then lots of very big people who are namedJennifer,' 'Michael,' and 'Sally,' and they have balloons coming out of theirmouths ... in which the children are saying, 'Hi, Dad,' as they watch the procession. And I am thankful to say, some balloons that say, 'Hi, Mom.' That showsyou how far the University has come."This kind of outlook provokes Rollins,who came to the University from aworking class neighborhood in Quincy,Illinois. A 1976 graduate of the Collegewho pieced together his education costswith a Stagg Scholarship, student aid,loans, and earnings, Rollins carries withhim a great empathy for the financiallystruggling student.Rollins sees too many school personnel who ask few questions, listen little,and are dedicated to coffee breaks andneat appointment books. He says this attitude is typified by the counselor whoannounced that she loved this time ofthe year because with all the student appointments, "the day goes quickly." Rollins and Walker use a persistent low-keyapproach to counter negative attitudes.By the time Rollins left, the counselorwho had said "That's the way it is" hadjoined in a more positive discussion ofthe reasons why young people and theirparents did not see the value of a qualityliberal arts education.What do the admissions officers say?They talk about the common core program, opportunities for undergraduateresearch, an eight-to-one teacher-student ratio, and varsity, intramural,and club sports programs. They talkabout a well-rounded student life on asmall campus where professors have meals with students in dormitory dininghalls. About the ASHUM program, afour-year program that follows two yearsof common core courses, conferring amasters degree in human biology and abetter-than-average chance for advancedstanding in medical school. They talkabout PERL (Politics, Economics,Rhetoric, and Law) and about intellectual rigor and commitment. "If youcan survive four years of this, you're notan average person," says Rollins, "andgraduate schools and prospective employers know this."They offer guidance to high schoolseniors. The young man at Case HighSchool in Racine who is interested inpolitical science and who might verywell go to the University of Wisconsin,got a two-minute survey on the state ofthe discipline and a suggestion of twoalternate majors from Walker. "If you'reinterested in foreign service or government work, I'd urge you to consider aprogram in public affairs such asChicago's perl program," says Walker."And, of course, languages should be animportant part of your program. Economics, either as a supplement or amajor, would make you attractive tomany employers."Continued on page 28.3At the Smart Gallery"The Decorative Designs of Frank LloydWright" exhibit brought some of the architect's most interesting work to theDavid and Alfred Smart Gallery thisFebruary.The exhibit included Wright's designsfor silver, china, linens, carpets, and adress, in addition to the familiar "organic" shapes of his architecture.Visitors to the exhibit were able tostudy the architect's original drawings,photographs of the finished projects,and associated pieces — a satisfying overview of each project presented.Mounted against cream-colored wallsdefined by oak trim, the exhibit was animmediate reminder of the Robie House. It remains Frank Lloyd Wright'sarchitectural landmark on the Universitycampus. Wright, speaking of the UnityTemple in Oak Park, the Imperial Hotelin Japan, and the Robie House, onceremarked, "These are what I had to say."On exhibition from March 12 throughMay 6 will bejackson Pollock: New FoundWorks.

I often walked withhim from our house on Kimbark and Fifty-eighthStreet to the laboratory, but on Saturday mornings he sometimes invited me inside.Leaving the bright winter sunlight, our eyes adjusted to the subdued light of thecorridor and we hung our coats in his office. I followed him down to the basementlaboratory where his assistant, Fred Pearson, greeted us. Fred and his brother notonly operated the instruments for experiments on the speed of light (the interferometer and the ruling engine), but they had also built them. In those days around1915, you had to start from scratch. For his experiment on the speed of light, holeshad been cut in the ceiling and walls of Ryerson to allow the beam of light, flashedfrom the rotating mirror, to play on the plane mirror placed in the attic at the far end ofthe building. The rotating mirror, crux of the experiment, had eight or sometimestwelve facets. I learned later that a beam of light projected from the source playedon one of these as it turned at one hundred twenty-eight revolutions per second.Mirrors and lenses guided the beam on its journey. By the time it returned to itssource, the mirror had turned a minute fraction of a degree, enough to divert thereturning beam to a measurable angle. My father, knowing the distance traveled, thespeed of the mirror, and the angle of deflection, could calculate C, the speed of light.Among the instruments in the basement was an extremely accurate balance. FredPearson showed me, by weighing one of my hairs, how sensitive it was. The littlescales staggered under its weight.Constructing the ruling engine had been a problem at Ryerson over the years. Itspurpose was ruling gratings — pieces of speculum, upon which a diamond etchedsome ten thousand lines to the inch. This diffraction grating served as a spectroscopeto break up a ray of light into its various colors. The finer the lines, the greater theresolving power. Any irregularities distorted the incoming beam as well as theinformation carried by these rays. The temperature surrounding the ruling engineisolated in the "Holy of Holies" had to be maintained at a constant degree. This meantthat we could only look at the prima donna under glass. Any fluctuation, even thatcaused by body heat, had to be avoided. These instruments were so sensitive that myfather, on assuming the chairmanship of the physics department, had requested thatthe foundations and walls of Ryerson Laboratory be built of extra-solid dimensionsand that all heavy traffic be diverted from the immediate vicinity.6In another room of the laboratory, Father showed me a collection of butterflies,hummingbirds' wings, and beetles he had brought back from South America wherehe had recently given a lecture. I looked at them through a microscope and saw apattern of ridges and grooves closely resembling the grating in the ruling engine.' Sunlight broke into iridescence on their surfaces. We marveled that these birds andinsects could produce diffraction in this effortless fashion.e children attended the Laboratory School on Kimbarkand Fifty-eighth. It was called the University Elementary School when I entered there for first grade in1912. We were taught the nursery rhymes in Latin,and in sixty-eight years I have not forgotten: Domina Maria, tota contrarialQuibiticrescit in borto? In May of 1917, the French president sent General Joffre and somemembers of their crack troop the "Blue Devils" to arouse American sympathy andbring us to their aid in World War I. We school children lined up along the Midwaywaving French flags and singing the Marseillaise as these burly warriors drove slowlyby in open cars.The Laboratory School's Scammon Gardens was the scene of many pageants. Withemphasis on the classics, we dressed in togas and tunics complete with helmets andspears to fight the glorious battle of the Greeks and Romans — all to music.Biology lessons took place there too. My class had the care of a large greenspotted frog. In the autumn we took his cage out to the garden to watch him burrowdown into the soft mud where he remained all winter, hibernating under the snow.In spring he emerged looking thin and hungry. We gave him a good breakfast ofangle worms.Almost every day when school was out I toured the neighborhood looking for abright yellow ice wagon pulled by huge black percherons and their driver on roundsdelivering ice. The driver somehow resembled his horses: tall, very strong, butgentle. Deliveries were made from the alleys dividing every block to the back doorsof each house.Cruising up and down these alleys, I heard the almost musical voices of mengathering scrap metal: "Rags and old iron . . . raaaags aaand ooooold iiiiiron."Kitchen doors opened from time to time as a housemaid called to have some debris7taken away. There are those at Ryerson who still believe that this is where theequipment for Robert Millikan's oil drop experiment ended up after his death, alongwith some Michelson interferometers.When I found a wagon, I would climb into the driver's seat and hold the reinswhile the driver chipped a block of ice in the rear of the wagon with his pick,clamped his tongs into it, swung it up on his shoulder which was protected by a largeblack leather pad, and carried it into a house. There, under the cook's direction, heshaped and fitted it into the ice box.In our family of three girls I was my mother's last cry for a male child. I don'tknow whether it was the psychological impact of this wish or my natural inclinationto be a tomboy that made me prefer wrestling with a gang of boys rather than playingwith dolls. I remember once getting the worst of a battle when my father, returningfrom the laboratory, passed a pile of dirty children pounding each other in the grass.Among the several pairs of limbs protruding from the scramble he recognized one ofmine, grabbed hold of it, and extracted his daughter. I received a severe lecture onour way home and that evening he and mother had a discussion about the problemof their rowdy child.e took a very dim view about my riding around on theice wagons, too. Curfew was imposed, under which Ilanguished indoors, secretly planning an escape. Out-.side my window, toward evening, I could see thelamplighter making his rounds with a tall pole which he inserted in the street lamp toignite the gas light. It began very small and slowly loomed brighter into a glowingflame. When surveillance was minimal, I took some savings from my pig bank,mounted my tricycle, and headed down Kimbark to Fifty-seventh Street and towardLake Michigan at a speed that frightened pedestrians. I passed Woodworth'sbookstore and Norton's candy shop (where I laid in supplies), peddled hard underthe Illinois Central viaduct, passed the Museum to La Rabida, then a pseudo-Spanish castle built on the lake front. Here I dismounted to sit on the steps andsavor the image of the confusion and remorse I hoped would be taking place athome. But as the evening set in I grew lonely and I was rather glad when a policemanbrought me home. There I was soundly spanked and forgiven.Our house on the corner of Fifty-eighth and Kimbark was surrounded by tall lilacbushes. In spring you could smell the blossoms all the way down to Woodlawn pastthe Robie house. No two houses could have been more unlike than these two. Ourshad turrets, fishtailed shingles, porches and a mysterious attic, dumbwaiters, and acoal cellar. The Robie house fascinated us then as it has generations since because ofFrank Lloyd Wright's astonishing streamlined construction. My sister Madeleine andher best friend Elizabeth Nitze, daughter of Professor William A. Nitze of romancelanguages at the University, had an ill-suppressed desire to investigate this house.One fine Thanksgiving afternoon they climbed over the low wall and finding an opendoor they entered. Near the kitchen they found a storeroom well stocked withjellies and jams, which they sat down to devour — jar after jar of raspberry, plum,and wild grape.Mrs. Robie suddenly appeared. Learning who they were, she led them to theliving room and gave them a lecture on the evils of illegal entry and theft. Mrs.Robie was an ardent Christian Scientist. "If you were hungry, children," she said,"you should have rung the doorbell and simply asked me for food." Madeleine wasunable to explain that this approach lacked something in the way of a challenge andbesides, they confessed they were not in the least hungry, having just finished adinner of turkey with cranberry sauce. They left after many apologies feeling ratherlike Peter Rabbit caught in Mr. McGregor's garden.My favorite playground lay just across Fifty-eighth Street between Kimbark andWoodlawn. The grass grew tall enough for hide-and-seek and the gnarled old cot-tonwoods were fine for climbing. Father would sometimes come with us to cut a littlebranch to make a whistle. He was as deft with his penknife as he was with each of hisinstruments. He chose the soft yellow part of a twig about four inches long and madea notch in it near one end. Then, loosening the bark by pinching it all along the twig,he slipped it off the bare stem. Using this inner core, he cut away a slice along thewhole length of it and then slipped it back into the tube of bark. It made a beautifulshrill note as he blew into it. My sisters, Madeleine and Beatrice, each received onecut so that the whistle made a chord when three of us blew together.My mother was something of a women's libber even in her day. She smokedcigarettes in public, admired Thorsten Veblen and Eugene Debs, fenced rather well,and rode horseback astride. Twice a week two handsome horses were brought fromthe Falkenburg stables to the stone mounting block in front of our house. She oftenrode with her friend, Harriet Walton Freund, wife of Professor Ernst Freund, whowas virtually the architect of the Law School. Mrs. Freund was quite a beautifulwoman, voluptuous in a glowing Renoir style, but she worried about her weight.Regular horseback riding was supposed to take it off. They rode over beautifulcinder trails winding down the Midway from Washington Park to Jackson Park past9the Japanese houses, remnants of the Exposition of 1893. Once Mother came backfrom one of these rides with a nasty cut on her cheek. Her horse had shied and pitchedher off, landing her in the cinders.eyond Hyde Park, my sisters and I were often takento hear Frederick Stock conduct the Thomas concertsat Orchestra Hall. We saw Pavlova do her famous"Dying Swan." We heard Galli-Curci sing and sawJoseph Schildkraut play in "Lilliom." But my personal taste was for a more vulgarform of entertainment. Whenever possible I escaped to the Frolic Movie House onFifty-fifth Street, where for ten cents I saw hero William S. Hart rescue maidenBlanche Sweet from the villain. Catching her in his arms as she hurled herself fromthe second story window, he galloped off toward the Nevada mountains and thesetting sun.South of Chicago lay the Indiana Dunes. In 1912 Miller was still a wilderness, afavorite spot for spring outings. It held a special charm for each member of myfamily. Other places to be considered included the quaking bog where islands ofsphagnum moss, bracken fern, and pink lady's slippers floated on an undergroundmarshy lake. The trick there was to jump from one island to another without sinkingin up to your thighs. My father opted for the dunes. He packed up his easel andwatercolors and took us in a cab to the Illinois Central station where we boarded asouthbound Stony Island local.My mother was an excellent amateur botanist, a former pupil of Professor Coulterin her undergraduate days at the University. The dunes, she told my sisters and me,are the most northerly stand of many subtropical plants and animals. Several speciesof cactus thrive as well as a hardy palmetto. Rattlesnakes too were found, she warnedus.My father would wander off to pick a subject for his watercolor. Holding hishands up to frame a rectangle, he selected a view that "composed." Sometimes Iwatched him work, blocking in the pines with thick brush and shading the dunes in acool wash tinged with violet. Lake Michigan went in the color of lead. If the sketch10became muddy through overworking as sometimes happened, he took out a penknife, ran it ruthlessly around the block pad to peel off the sheet. Discarding hiseffort, he would begin again more boldly.My sisters and I shed our shoes on the particular morning I recall, to dabble in thecold waters lapping the lonely shore, unpeopled as far as we could see."Come children," my mother called. "We will walk over to the moving dunes."Picking our way through the woods we climbed a hill to see where we were. Therebefore us was the naked dune blowing grain by grain across a forest of scrub oak,maple, pine, and hawthorn, leaving a broad trail of devastation behind it. Blackened trunks and leafless branches protruded from the withered floor of the lifelessforest. The dune, blown by the prevailing wind, was piling up across a patch of livingtrees, some of which were barely visible above the sand. In a desperate effort tosurvive, the oaks and maples were putting forth a mass of blossoms and a bumpercrop of winged seedlings. The blackened trail extended as far as we could see withsigns of life creeping back in patches of fireweed, blueberries, sassafras, and hazel-bush.Downwind, blithely unaware of the impending doom, stood the forest rustling inthe breeze. Birds filled the air with lively chirping, bees collected honey, insectsmunched, and life went on as though forever."Can't we stop it, Mother?" we asked anxiously. The answer came eventually withthe advent of the bulldozer, the subdivision, and the six-lane highway. Even in itsheartless assault, the wicked giant brings back a nostalgia now that he is tetheredunder beachgrass roots and imprisoned by the encroaching city.uring prohibition my mother was quite shameless'about distilling bathtub gin and various wines. Thedoorbell rang one day and I opened it to see a verywell-dressed gentleman who asked to see my mother."She is resting," I told him, "may I help you?" "Oh no thank you," he repliedentering the living room, "I'll just wait here." Not knowing about my mother'sclandestine operations I was rather nonplused at this stranger's behavior. I thoughthe might be a bill collector or a salesman of some sort. He did not look like one of11her botanists or poets. So I went up to her room and told her a Mr. What-ever-his-name-was awaited her downstairs. She sprang out of the chaise lounge where shehad been resting and went down to welcome him. Together they disappeared towhat had been the former maid's bathroom where I later found out he dropped theappropriate pills into the mixture of juniper berries and juice to hasten fermentation. Then with the formality of an undertaker, he bowed and made a discreet exit.My parents sold the big house on the corner of Fifty-eighth Street sometimearound 1925 and decided to build a smaller one on the back of the lot. Madeleine'shusband, Philip Maher, was the architect. On the evening before she sailed forEurope (Mother frequently sailed for Europe), she and Father dined with the Matters. "Would you like to build us a house, Philip?" she asked."What kind of house, Mrs. Michelson?" he asked."Oh, just an awfully nice house," she answered. Philip took out a pencil andsketched on the back of an envelope the pretty little French provincial house nowstanding at 1220 East Fifty-eighth Street."That looks charming," she said. "Put a little glass conservatory on the diningroom for my plants and have it ready when I return in the autumn." Philip says hehas never had a client so easily pleased before or since.Hyde Park had been through a dreary time in the fifties and early sixties, and itsaddened me to wander around my old haunts. But all that has changed now and Ifound much of the former charm reappearing. I look back on my childhood therewith affection and although I have no degrees after my name, I believe byosmosis — maybe, I absorbed the concept of real education growing up in the shadowof this great University.Dorothy Michelson Livingston is author o/Master of Light, a biography of herfather Albert A. Michelson, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics — the firstAmerican to do so. Mrs. Livingston visited the University campus last summerand returned to many of the homes and haunts she describes here. She lives inNew York City.

The winnergets a good laugh at everyone else's expense and gets to pick up the pieces.TO START: Each player chooses hiscounter and places it on the cornersquare designated "Bandersnatch." Eachthen draws two mobility cards; theplayer with the highest grade-point average goes first and play proceeds to theleft. The player whose turn it is is knownas "The Mover"; other players areknown as "Waiters." A "Waiter" becomes a "Mover" when it is his turn; thisfact becoming manifest when someonefinally says: "It's your turn."A SHORT PHILOSOPHICAL DISCOURSEON THE UTILITY OF GAMES: Games are forms of social frameworks to which theindividual subjects himself to ease theawkwardness of conversation. The realpurpose of people sitting together in acircle is talking. Games are useful in disguising those silences which occur whenno one has anything to say to anyoneelse. Bear this in mind and use the gamewisely (content, incidentally, is not relevant to the process of conversation. Youshould never permit your vacuity to influence your conversational performance), performing simultaneously anyother activity which people sittingaround in a circle together happen tosuggest to you.HOW TO WIN: You may leave HydePark for good when you have fulfilled allof the requirements, experienced all thatHyde Park has to offer, achieved afinancial and emotional equilibrium, andbe moving in the right direction.THE ADVANCED GAME: The advancedgame differs from the above rules inonly one particular: having fulfilled all ofthe above requirements, you must stillremain in Hyde Park. The ADVANCEDGAME is the more authentic version andis recommended to those who have mastered the BEGINNING GAME.Excerpted from "The Good Old Hyde ParkGame Rules," Year Box, 1970.

A useful guideto the intensity of solar activity is thenumber and duration of sunspots, "cool"regions that appear dark in contrast withthe rest of the Sun's face. Astronomershave studied sunspots for centuries, butthe mechanisms that produce and maintain the spots have eluded understanding until now, says University ofChicago astrophysicist Eugene N.Parker.Without solar activity, generated byintense magnetic fields in the Sun, theearth would be a much colder place,Parker says. When the Sun is in an activephase, it produces high levels of ultraviolet radiation and x-rays, which tend toheat the upper stratosphere of the Earth;this gives rise to north-south winds thatcarry warm tropical air toward the poles,moderating the climate in the temperatezones and producing a suitable environment for human activity.Sometimes the Sun "switches off" foras long as a century, with scarcely anymagnetic activity and few sunspots.Then the temperate regions grow cold,as they did in the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries. Such Sun-induced,prolonged cold snaps may have driventhe Norsemen out of Greenland, endingtheir colonization of North America; thefreezing of lakes in the warm and fertilevalley of the Yang-tze in China accompanied by major political unrest, wasprobably the result of another period of16 solar passivity. On the other hand, theSun entered a period of "superhigh" activity in the twelfth century, warmingthe Earth abnormally and causingdroughts that may have driven the Pueblo Indians of the southwestern UnitedStates out of their Mesa Verde territory.Magnetic field lines, and thus flaresand eruptions, on the Sun are concentrated in regions near sunspots. Thesunspots themselves, which are coolerthan the surrounding medium, do notproduce the solar activity that changesEarth's climate, but the spots are goodindicators of the extent of solar activityat a given time.The general appearance and behaviorof sunspots is well known. The spots arewide depressions, typically a fewthousand miles in diameter and severalhundred miles deep; they are shapedlike shallow pie plates, with slopingouter walls, dimpling the surface of theSun. Sunspots form when many magnetic flux tubes, near-vertical columns ofintense magnetic field about twohundred miles in diameter and manythousands of miles in length, cluster together to form a single large tube risingup from the solar surface and spreadingout like spokes on an umbrella. Additional flux tubes rise from the Sun's interior like great looping strands ofspaghetti and join the spot to maintainit. The spots endure anywhere fromhours to weeks, then break up into manyseparate tubes and disappear.But, says Parker, no one has explainedsatisfactorily why the spots form in thefirst place, or why they do not instantlydisintegrate whenever they happen to form. The individual flux tubes, driftingat random across the face of the Sun,have no apparent reason to group themselves together: Indeed, the magnetictubes should repel one another, like twopower lines held close together,whenever they chance to meet.Parker resolves the problem by invoking an unseen current beneath the visible surface of the Sun that carries fluxtubes over to a newly forming spot andbinds the tubes together to maintain thespot's existence. This invisible current,the product of thermal convection beneath the spot, acts on the tubes byaerodynamic drag forces."We can understand sunspots," hesays, "only if we assume that underneaththem are convective downdrafts: If youlook at the dynamical behavior of themagnetic flux tubes associated withsunspots, you must assume adowndraft."The effect, says Parker, can be understood in terms of a terrestrial analogy,the apparent motion of icebergs againstthe prevailing surface currents. Most ofthe iceberg, as is well known, is underwater. A strong current below the surface, moving in a different directionfrom the ocean's surface layers, can carrythe iceberg "against the current" as seenfrom above. In the same way, a powerfuldowndraft beneath a sunspot wouldgenerate currents deep under the Sun'ssurface (beginning about five hundred toone thousand miles down) convergingradially on the spot. These deep currentstend to drag the flux tubes, against electromagnetic resistance, into a tight-knitgroup within the sunspot's boundaries.The presumed downdraft, in additionto corralling magnetic flux tubes to preserve and enlarge the spot, serves to reduce upward energy flow and disperseheat piling up beneath the spot due toconvection. It makes possible the stability of sunspots, which Parker labels the"dynamical clustering phenomenon."Unfortunately, astronomers cannotsee deep enough into the Sun to observethe underside of a sunspot directly. "Sowe have at once propounded a theoryand cut off any hope of verification,"says Parker. "At present, I don't see anydirect confirmation or refutation in thecards."Eugene N. Parker is DistinguishedService Professor in the Departments ofAstronomy and Physics, the EnricoFermi Institute and the College, andformer chairman of the Department ofAstronomy. Parker's research onsunspots is supported under a generalgrant from the National Aeronautics andSpace Administration.University of Chicago AlumniAre Invited to AttendFOTA(Festival of the Arts)Major Events IncludeApril 20 FOTA FESTFOTA's 25th Opening CelebrationReification Company, Mighty Joe Young and much moreIda Noyes, 9:00pm - 1 :00amApril 30Mandel Hall, 8:00pmMay 12 Anark Twain ¦ One AAan SnowRichard HenzelCloister Club, 8:00pmMay 19 FOTA Picnic en the QuadsNoon to 4:00pmREUNION '79(May 18th & 19th)For more information on either of these events fill in the form below and mail to:Program OfficeAlumni AssociationUniversity of Chicago5733 S.

Mellon Foundation GivesUniversity $1 Million.A grant of $1 million was awarded to theUniversity this February by the AndrewW. Mellon Foundation. The grant, forthe support positions for outstandingyounger and intermediate faculty members in the humanities, is one of a seriesawarded to five major research universities for this purpose. The Mellonprogram will allow the universities toappoint, reappoint, or advance to tenurea limited number of younger humanistswhom the institutions could not otherwise appoint, retain, or advance.In accepting the grant, PresidentHanna Gray said, "Once again, the Mellon Foundation has created a programthat addresses a critical and central needof the University. This program is amost welcome successor to the earlierMellon Grant in support of junior faculty. We are enormously grateful to theFoundation for its generous support andfor the spirit which informs it." Mrs.Gray said the precise allocation of thegrant would be made by the provost inconsultation with the dean of the Division of Humanities.The terms of the Mellon grant allowthe University to spend the $1 millionduring a seven to ten-year period. TheUniversity is required to raise $1 millionin matching endowment funds committed to the purposes of the grant. If theUniversity matches the Mellon award ona three to one basis, an additional$700,000 of endowment funds will beavailable from the Foundation.Commission Studies Alumni AffairsAn ad hoc Commission on Alumni Affairs has been appointed by Hanna Hol-born Gray, University president; the group has been asked to review the University's relationship with its 86,000alumni and to propose a restatement ofthe general principles and purposes ofthe University's Alumni Association andits programs.Commenting on this charge, Mrs.Gray said, "It is appropriate and important to conduct a general study of theUniversity's relationship with its alumniand alumnae at this time."

Where is the divine spark ignitedin many of us in the past by Hutchinson,Lasswell, Sapir, Bretz, Wirth, Hayden,Shorey, and other humanists?Sunk in the mire of the Great Depression, beset by clamors from right andleft, confronted by bigotry, we werenevertheless conscious that we were atthe University to obtain an education inliving with a purpose, not just for a living. We were alive not only to the terrible problems of our day — unemployment, disarmament, fascism, andcommunism — but also to the great issues of all time — truth, justice, loyalty,and love.... I would like to see the questionnaire on which the responses weremade, and also to know for sure that theanswers were not handpicked for aforeseeable result. Is this possible?Sydney H. Kasper '34Silver Spring, Md.A copy of the questionnaire has beensent to Mr. Kasper along with a newsrelease describing the general response.All quotes were taken from the last section, labeled "Comments," and nearly allrespondents who commented gave uspermission to use the quotes. Naturally,the private comments have remainedso — Editor. On the Road . . .Continued from page 3During a conversation with a confident young woman at Racine's Washington Park High School, Walker discovered that he was talking to a finalistin the National Council of Teachers ofEnglish essay contest, that she was studying German, French, and Latin in preparation for her goal of becoming a translator, and that she was on the track andcross-country teams. "I'm only runningthree to five miles a day because it's offseason," she confessed.Walker, who does three to five milesdaily himself, is off in good form, explaining that the College offers sixty-four foreign languages. The student isvisibly impressed as he describes thescope of the Assyrian Dictionary project, and her interest deepens as he describes women's track and cross-countryand the Gertrude Dudley Scholarship.Hearing of her interest in the Universityof Wisconsin at Madison, Walkersketches the advantages of life on a smallcampus in a big city.In a Milwaukee high school, Rollinssits down with a young man who, thoughhe is an outstanding student, on the debate team, and participates in everyavailable sport, cannot focus on anythingbut money and his family's lack of it.Rollins' questions about college preference and academic interest are barelyanswered, as the senior details his part-time work record, his savings, the needsof brothers and sisters, and his ambivalence about pursuing a program he willenjoy or one that promises a good salaryimmediately after graduation. Rollinspatiently shifts the conversation back to the student's needs and goals, pointingout that four years of college is a onetime investment, that there are manyforms of financial assistance for students,that over sixty percent of the University's undergraduates receive some formof financial aid. Rollins makes some inroads and the student begins to talkabout his interest in social sciences and adim dream of becoming a lawyer. Hedecided to complete a form indicatinghis interest in the College and his wish toreceive more information along with anapplication. Like all the students interviewed on the road, this senior will receive a follow-up letter from the admissions officer urging him to visit the campus and go through the application process.Traveling to big and small cities andliving out of a rented car is only a smallpart of the working life of a staffmember in the Admissions Office. Farmore effort goes into the task of screening applications, interviewing prospective students, and, as members of theAdmissions Committee, voting on theiracceptability.But for some young men and womenin the high schools of the United States,visits by Rollins, Walker, and others areopening the door to a world where, as itsays on Chicago's emblem, knowledgeincreases and life is enriched.And, on convocation day, thegraduates may not remember how theywere introduced to the University ofChicago, but the people in Admissionswill as they gather brochures, appointment books, suitcases, and hit the roadfor Chicago — again.

Ausick28On the cover: That archtypal medievallady, Eleanor of Aquitaine, was described in the last Magazine. The king onthis issue's cover (taken from the westside of Mandel Hall), reminds us thatHenry II, Eleanor's king and consort, isa fascinating study of personality andpower.In 1127, Henry I of England, duke ofNormandy and son of William the Conqueror, gave his twenty-five-year-olddaughter Matilda to Geoffrey, Count ofAnjou. Geoffrey was fourteen andMatilda was appalled. It was an ac-rimonius marriage, but after seven yearsit produced a son, Henry II. This Henrydid not grow to chivalrous knighthood.He was stocky, slightly bowlegged,ruddy with reddish hair, careless abouthis clothing, and had great reserves ofenergy. Less wonderfully, he was stubborn with black moods and temper tantrums and heir to an unimpressive parcelof land ruled by his father. That gentleman had taken to wearing in his helmetflowers from the common broom —planta genesta — from whence thenickname "plantagenet."Henry and Eleanor married when hewas nineteen and she was twenty-nine.Eleanor had divorced Louis VII ofFrance, effectively moving the vast landsof the Aquitaine from the Capetian tothe Angevin camp. She and Henry, greatplotters, were an impressive team: sheprovided Aquitaine, his countries wereAnjou and Maine, Matilda looked afterNormandy. One October while Henrywas campaigning in the Vexin, KingStephen of England died of a "flux ofhemorrhoids." Since Stephen hadnamed Henry his heir (his own son having died of tainted eels), Henry Plantagenet became king of England in 1 1 54;it is here that the Chancellor ThomasBecket enters the story.Becket was a tall, dark, elegant man ofwit and learning. Henry's gifts to his newchancellor were prodigious, and Becker's household was civilized and sumptuous, an atmosphere utterly unlikeHenry's rag-tag court.Tranquility reigned for about sevenyears — a little trouble in Wales, a fewraids into Brittany, the birth of six children: William, Henry, Matilda, Richard,Geoffrey, and Eleanor; all but Williamsurvived. It was the 1161 death of theold Archbishop of Canterbury thattriggered the problems. Becket protested, but Henry pressed the post uponhim and a strange transformation wasmade. Becket, if chroniclers are to bebelieved, had been a sort of chaste sensualist. Now he was austere, and worse,put Henry after God. Besides scrimmages over Becket's determined retrieval of church property,there was the case of the "criminousclerks." Some nominal clerics in lowerorders were tried for crimes in theecclesiastical courts; Henry insisted theybe tried in the civil courts. There werevicious words between archbishop andking, accusations of treason, refusals offealty, and in 1164, Becket fled toFrance.All this emotion took its toll: un-tended borders seethed with rebellion,Henry grew aged and choleric andEleanor learned about Rosamond Clifford. Rosamond, daughter of the Norman knight Walter de Clifford, wasHenry's latest distraction. Tucked awayin the ancient manor of Woodstock, shewas fair and elegant, unlike many ofHenry's careless dalliances. During theirtwelve-year liaison, Henry spent aboutthree and a half years at Woodstock, andsome fast subtraction indicates thatRosamond had ample time for needlework. In any case, after the 1167Christmas Court in Argentan, Eleanorpacked and left for her own estates inPoitiers.Becket's stay in France mellowed theking's temper; by the summer of 1 1 70, akind of peace had been forged betweenHenry and Thomas. By December,Becket was sailing toward England,briskly excommunicating the bishopswho had illegally crowned the youngHenry, ensconced at Winchester. Furious, the excommunicated bishopsstormed back across the Channel toHenry who then lost his temper. It wassufficient. Four of his barons driftedaway and on December 29, 1170, murdered Becket and his attendants at Canterbury Cathedral. The martyrizationwas instant; townsfolk carried off bits ofcloth dipped in blood. Henry heardabout the killing two days later and theBishop of Lisieux, writing PopeAlexander, said his grief was so intensethat "we feared for his life."The strife in Henry's life and kingdomseemed to be accelerated by the murderin the cathedral. Though he mournedfor forty days, few believed he was innocent of the crime. He was called a tyrant and threatened with excommunication. By 1172, Christmas Court at Chi-non was a brawl: too many sons hadheard too many promises without receiving the land or power to make themreal. It must have been much like theChristmas Court depicted in Lion inWinter. But the events described in thatfilm would place the action at about1176: by then, to save himself from herconspiracies, Henry had put Eleanor under house arrest, and had takensixteen-year-old Alais Capet as his mistress. Poor Alais. She had been promised in marriage to Richard and was supposedly under the protection of thePlantagenets.Despite this new attachment, Henrywas surly. The sons were plotting.Richard, at least, was legitimately busyputting down rebellion in the Aquitaine.But the young king was a charming wastrel, indolent and boasting. And Geraldof Wales says that son Geoffrey was a"deceiver and a dissembler." Worse, tovarying degrees they had joined thetough young French king, Philip Augustus, to fight their father.By 1183, a full-scale revolt includedyoung Henry, Geoffrey, Philip, theduke of Burgundy and the count ofToulouse .. . . the latter two, Henry's oldenemies. Young Henry, ignoring hisfather's entreaties for loyalty and order,careened into pillaging. Shortly afterlooting a shrine he fell into fever anddysentery and died. Richard, themother's favorite, would be king. Andthe rest, as they say, is history. Eleanor'slot improved; Richard saw to that. In1 186, Geoffrey was trampled to death in_„, , <•a tournament and in July, 1189, the ailing Henry died broken-hearted: his sonJohn had sided with Richard against him.As for other endings: Rosamond haddied in 1176 or 1177 of natural causesand was buried at the nunnery ofGodstow. Alais was deemed too shopworn to keep and was finally sent back toher family. At thirty-five, she marriedand disappeared from history. Richardwas crowned king on September 3,1189; he would lead the Third Crusadeand die of a crossbow wound in 1199.Eleanor would live fifteen more yearssurvived by one daughter and son John.He, as Henry had hoped, would ruleEngland after all, but would lose thelarger part of the Angevin empire including Normandy. His son would beHenry III and reign for fifty-six years.L£90Qm-s^- 09 V") I HO¦1SV3. our09VDTH9 jo ai ismiainor
