„ mawdry Meansor Lofty Ends ?SERIOUS SCHOLARSHIP ORANTI-CATHOLICISM?Editor:The anti-Catholic caricatures interspersedin the text of James Graff's article "MixedLegacy" (FALL/83) are useful signals, warningof serious prejudices harbored by Mr. Graffand Professor Katz.Mr. Graff is dishonest in proposing Professor Katz as one of the most outstanding historians of the Mexican Revolution. The professor's Marxist background disqualifies him fromobjectively analyzing Marxist revolutions inflicted on Catholic cultures. The absence of anymention of the anti-Catholic nature of both theMexican and Nicaraguan revolutions and theiraftermaths can only be understood, in the context of the praise for these revolutions by someone who has researched them extensively, as anendorsement of such policies.Mr. Graff should be more careful whenrecommending such deceit as seriousscholarshipThomas A. McDonough, MBA'77CONCENTRATE ONASTEROIDS, NOT ONATOM BOMBSEditor:Little can be added to the discussion byMessrs. Gilkey, Tracy, Ricoeur, and Toulminabout the insanity of nuclear war, (FALL/83).For me, the basic question is how can we getthe leaders of half a dozen nuclear-armed statesto renounce the use of nuclear weapons and destroy their multibillion-dollar inventory ofICBMs, IRBMs, cruise missiles, bombs, andtactical weapons.The "grass roots" approach, using petitions to legislatures, resolutions passed by theWorld Council of Churches, and statements byPope John Paul II, neglects the power of thePentagon and the Soviet military machine.What we need is an outside force that threatensthe whole world, and mandates cooperativedefenses. UFOs might have served this purpose, but they have been largely discredited,and there is no evidence of "alien civilizations"moving in to take us over. However, the solarsystem offers one faint hope — threat of an asteroid impact on Earth. It has happened before,and we are due for another.There are probably dozens of asteroids inorbits crossing the Earth's orbit, each largeenough to cause the extinction of many livingspecies, including mankind. It happened in amore primitive environment at the end of theCretaceous Period, 65 million years ago, whenthe dinosaurs and several other species becameextinct. Unlike the annihilation of nuclear war,the threatening asteroids invite the Earth's freestates to cooperate in preventing an impact. If asteroids were carefully monitored, there willbe sufficient time to intercept one on a collisioncourse and to divert it before it impacts theEarth.Reagan and Andropov should be advisedto organize cooperatively for asteroid defense,rather than oppose each other in irrationalnuclear deterrence.There should have been a scientist on thepanel.Thornton PageFormer assistant professor in theDepartment of Astronomy andthe College, 1938-51.Editor:What astounded me about the discussionof freedom, history, fate, destiny and the im-EDITOR'SNOTESWhen one thinks of making a gift toAlma Mater, one envisions oneself sittingdown and writing out a check. That's notalways the case with donors, as you mayknow from having read our latest fund-raising appeal. Now we'd like to report onanother unusual gift to the University.Briefly, the University was part-owner of amagnificent thoroughbred racing horse,Alydar, who was runner-up for the TripleCrown in 1978, when he placed second inthe Kentucky Derby, the Belmont Stakesand the Preakness Stakes. Actually, theUniversity received approximately $6 million from a trust under the will of WarrenWright to establish a family-oriented program at La Rabida Children's Hospital andResearch Center that will prepare childrenwho have depended on life-support equipment in hospitals to be cared for at home.Wright, who died in 1950, owned CalumetFarm, near Lexington, KY, which he turnedinto the nation's most successful thoroughbred nursery and racing stable. Among theassets in the recently terminated trust wasAlydar. The University sold its one-thirdinterest in the horse to Calumet Farm, preferring to take cash instead. Alas, now we'llnever know which end of the horse belongedto the University of Chicago.For those of you who are weary fromthe strains and stresses of the 20th century,we're sorry you couldn't be on campus fromOctober 23-30, when you might have hadan opportunity to look backward, to a fascinating period in history. A week-longconference, entitled "1483 and All That,"was held to celebrate the births of Martin 1 pending apocalypse was its very white, utterlyi male, completely abstract content. For these; professors the women's movement and feministscholarship, the Native American movement1 and natural world perspectives, and the struggles of peoples all over the world to survive theI ongoing apocalypse do not exist or are part ofthe unthinkable. While we spend 24 million; dollars an hour protecting white male mono-cultural universities from the red menace, yellow peril, black liberation, etc., over 40,000children die unnecessarily each day of starvation, malnutrition and related diseases.

Theconference was sponsored by the University,the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools,and the Newberry Library. The opening address, for which the conference was named,was given by Karl J. Weintraub, AB'49,AM'42, PhD'57, the Thomas E. DonnellyDistinguished Service Professor in Historyand the outgoing dean of the HumanitiesDivision. Scholars and musicians gavepapers and concerts and there were two col-loquia designed to bring the work of Lutherand Raphael into perspective.When we introduced our "Family Album" photos in 1980, we assumed it wouldbe for one issue only. But before the nextJune convocation, graduates whose relativeswere alumni called to ask if we would be onhand with our photographer. Now, itseems, it's taken for granted we'll takephotos of alumni families and their graduating member(s) at all convocations. Thus,you'll be seeing "Family Album" as a regular feature from now on.One of the greatest pleasures for an editor is being asked by other publications forpermission to reprint an article. We're especially pleased when teachers write for permission to use an article in their classroomdiscussions. One of our most widely reprinted articles in recent issues has been"All Our Children Can Learn," (SUMMER/82), by Mike Alper, about the work ofBenjamin Bloom, the Charles H. Swift Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus inEducation. Among other publications, Mike'sarticle will appear in a college textbook being published by Houghton Mifflin Co., andin National Education, published by theNew Zealand Educational Institute, Wellington, NZ.If you'll turn to Page 25, you will find aChristmas gift, from us to you. 9EditorFelicia Antonelli Holton, AB'50DesignerTom GreensfelderThe University of Chicago Office ofAlumni AffairsRobie House5757 South Woodlawn AvenueChicago, Illinois 60637Telephone: (312) 753-2175President, The University of ChicagoAlumni AssociationMichael Klowden, AB'67Executive Directorof University Alumni AffairsCarol Jenkins Linne, AB'66Associate Directorof University Alumni AffairsRuth HalloranProgram DirectorMark Reinecke, AM'81Director, Alumni Schools CommitteeRobert Ball, Jr.The University of ChicagoAlumni AssociationExecutive Committee, the CabinetMichael Klowden, AB'67Edward J.

Weinstein.)On the QuadsCHANDRASEKHAR WINSNOBEL PRIZE FOR PHYSICSSubrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, theMorton D. Hull Distinguished ServiceProfessor in the Departments of Astronomy, Astrophysics, and Physics, receiveda very nice surprise for his 73rd birthday— the Nobel Prize.Chandrasekhar, who is known as"Chandra" to his colleagues, was awardedthe prize for his "studies of the physicalprocesses of importance to the structureand evolution of stars," according to theNobel Committee. The shy astrophysicist, who hasdevoted his life to studying the heavens,shared the Nobel Prize for Physics withWilliam Fowler of the California Instituteof Technology, who called his co-winner"an idol." They were both honoredfor pioneering work on the evolutionof stars."The Nobel Prize appears to berelated to my work on the maximummass of white dwarf stars, which Idiscovered in 1930 while on a steameren route from India to England,"Chandrasekhar said.If it seems at all ironic that heshould have won such a prestigious prizefor that work, Chandrasekhar is far toopolite to comment on it. When 24-year-old Chandrasekhar arrived in Englandfrom India, he found himself somewhatof an outcast at Cambridge University.(Independence for India was still a longway off, and the British Raj still ruledthere, with their rigid policy of socialdiscrimination toward Indians.) However, he caught the attention of SirArthur Eddington, who at 52 was generally acknowledged as the world's finestastronomer. The two met after dinnerfor several months, to discuss the youngIndian's latest calculations about thebehavior of dying stars.In January, 1935, Chandrasekharpresented his findings before the RoyalAstronomical Society. He suggested thatstars of a mass approximately greaterthan one-and-one half times the mass ofthe sun would not die as white dwarfs(hot, dense stars about the size ofthe earth, created after a star hasrun out of its usual fuel), butwould go on contracting,apparently without limit.Eddington demolished theyoung man's claims. He saidthat Chandrasekhar's theoryhad to be wrong simplybecause it led to an inevitable and outlandish conclusion. As Eddingtontalked, the audienceSubrahmanyanChandrasekhar laughed. It was a devastating experiencefor the young scholar.Actually, Chandrasekhar's work inthe 1930s led to the whole concept ofwhat are known today as black holes.After a few decades, his theory was vindicated, black holes were accepted, andthe dividing line mentioned in his paper(a stellar mass 1.4 times that of the sun)is in textbooks as the ChandrasekharLimit.At the time, however, the argumentbetween Eddington and Chandrasekhardragged on, and ruined Chandrasekhar'schances of getting a tenured position inEngland. He came to the University ofChicago in 1937, and has been heresince. When he first arrived, he wrote abook about his theory, and ceased tothink about it. Instead, he began tostudy something else, and since then,about once a decade, he has switched hisarea of research to something new. Hehas studied how light scatters in theatmosphere to make the sky blue; thebehavior of hot fluids in magnetic fieldsand the stability of rotating objects tolearn about the evolution of galaxies;and worked on the consequences of general relativity.On learning that he had beenawarded the Nobel Prize,Chandrasekhar said:"For me my latest work representsmy best efforts. I spent nine years ofsustained effort developing the mathematical theory of black holes, which wasrecently published. I consider that mymost important work."I work for my own personal satisfaction on things generally outside of thescientific mainstream. Usually my workhas become appreciated only after somelength of time. My scientific efforts havealways been devoted to a specific areaover long periods. I try to explore anarea and develop a point of view. I'vebeen fortunate to find and study five orsix areas in depth. Then I take sometime to find another area suited to mytemperament. I never ask if an area isimportant, only if I can construct abody of knowledge that pleases me. Atthe end of each period of work I find Ihave developed a certain perspective."Chandrasekhar is the ultimate disciplined scholar. Always dressed formallyin dark suit and white shirt, he workstwelve-hour days, seven days a week, inhis campus office. Other astrophysicistsgroan when asked about "Chandra'sstyle." In a discipline where a theoretician is considered past his peak at 40,here is Chandrasekhar, forcing himselfto abandon a subject and start over, inhis 70s.Chandrasekhar received his B.A.from Madras University, India, and hisPh.D. from Trinity College, CambridgeUniversity, in 1933. He lives with hiswife, Lalitha, in Hyde Park. They metwhen they were both physics students atMadras University.In 1930, Chandrasekhar's uncle, C.V. Raman, received the Nobel Prize inPhysics for discovering the "Ramaneffect" that describes the detraction oflight by crystals.Chandrasekhar is the 54th NobelPrize winner who has either studied ortaught at the University of Chicago,including Henry Taube, the Stanford University professor who won thisNobel Prize in Chemistry. Taube taughtat the University for several years,until 1961."Our entire community will celebrate the award of the Nobel Prize toChandra," said Hanna Holborn Gray,president of the University. "No onebetter fulfills the mission of our University. He is a scientist without peer, ateacher of teachers, and a devoted, selfless and humane participant in all ourundertakings."For a period in the 1940s,Chandrasekhar drove the 100 miles fromYerkes Observatory in Williams Bay,Wisconsin, to the University, weekly, toteach a class composed of only two students. Ten years later, in 1957, his entireclass won the Nobel Prize in Physics.They were Tsung Dao Lee, PhD'50, andChen Ning (Frank) Lee, PhD'48, whowon the Nobel Prize for their work inparticle physics."But I had nothing to do with it. Besure to put that in," protests the slight,quiet professor, as he hurries off to alecture. Being late — or immodest — is nothis style. UNIVERSITY DEDICATESNEW HOSPITALOn October 15 the University ofChicago Medical Center dedicated thecenterpiece of its multimillion-dollarmodernization and renovation program,a new, 468-bed acute care hospitalnamed for Chicago businessman BernardMitchell.Mitchell, founder of the Jovan, Inc.,fragrance firm, donated $14.5 million forconstruction of the new hospital, whichwill replace the 56 year-old AlbertMerritt Billings Hospital as the MedicalCenter's main patient care facility.The Billings building will continueto serve as an outpatient and researchfacility and will undergo extensiverenovation.The Bernard Mitchell Hospital, asix-story, silver-colored facility, cost $70million. It is located on MarylandAvenue, just south of 58th Street.The new hospital includes theMedical Center's new 48-bed facility forcritical care, the Arthur Rubloff Intensive Care Tower. It is named forChicago real estate developer ArthurRubloff, who donated $5 million towardits construction and equipment.The Pritzker family of Chicago (forwhom the University's Pritzker School ofMedicine is named) also played a majorrole in the renovation effort, donating $3million for general Medical Center modernization work and academic needs.Occupying a separate two-storyarea within the Bernard Mitchell Hospital is the new Chicago Lying-in Hospital,the Medical Center's internationallyreknowned obstetrical and gynecologicalcare facility. The present Lying-inbuilding, which opened in 1931, will beconverted to research, office, and academic space.The Bernard Mitchell Hospital willinclude some 300 beds allocated tomedical /surgical specialties, includingoncology (cancer) units and reverseisolation rooms; an advanced emergencycare center that is among the largest andmost sophisticated found in a hospitalthis size; and 35,000 square feet oflaboratory space. It also includes a comprehensive radiology center that at48,000 square feet is among the area'slargest and features a full spectrum ofstate-of-the-art equipment for full bodyand brain scan, ultrasound, radiationtreatment, nuclear cardiology, andmammography.The Arthur Ruboloff Intensive CareTower includes an eight-bed burn unitwith adjacent physical therapy facilities,three 10-bed units for intensive careassociated with the medical-surgical specialties, isolation rooms, and a cardiacintensive care unit.The new Chicago Lying-in Hospitalwill include a regional perinatal center, aself-contained neonatal unit with 36 intermediate and intensive care beds, four24-bed patient care units and 40 bassinets for normal babies, a labor-deliveryarea with 26 specialized rooms and twohome-like "birthing rooms" for non-high-risk patients.The University's Medical Center willhave a total of about 700 beds, withnew facilities replacing 468 of the oldest beds, located in portions dating backmore than a half-century.The project is the focal point of aten-year, $90 million effort to modernizethe Medical Center's patient care,research, and teaching facilities.The first phase of this plan, the newhospital construction, is being funded bythe Medical Center's three-year RenewalCampaign, which is seeking $35 millionin gifts and pledges. About $32 millionhas been raised so far. The balance ofthe construction cost was paid from internal Medical Center financing and tax-exempt bonds.John P. GouldGOULD NAMED GSB DEANJohn P. Gould, MBA'63, PhD'66,has been named dean of the GraduateSchool of Business, effective July 1.Gould, who has been on the facultysince 1965, is a specialist in microeconomics, industrial organization, capital investment, and the economics ofinformation.Gould succeeds Richard N. Rosett,dean since 1974, who is returning to full-time research and teaching and is spending this academic year at Stanford University's Hoover Institution.Gould has edited the Journal ofBusiness since 1976 and is associateeditor of The Journal of FinancialEconomics.In 1969-70, Gould served as a special assistant and consultant on economic affairs to George P. Shultz,former dean of the Graduate School of Business and now U.S. Secretary ofState, when Schultz was Secretary ofLabor and then director of the Officeof Management and Budget.FRESHMAN CLASSRECORD SIZEThe College admitted its largest everentering class in September— 775 freshmen. This brings the enrollment of theCollege to 2700.More than fifty percent of the Classof 1987 were in the top five percent oftheir graduating classes, and their meancombined S.A.T. scores were ten pointshigher than those of last year's entering class.Eighteen percent of the enteringclass are related to alumni, or have siblings now attending the College. Sixty-two percent of the class is male; thirty-eight percent is female.The members of the class graduatedfrom 567 different high schools— sixty-eight percent public, twenty percentindependent, and twelve percentparochial.While in high school, these potentialCollege students participated in a widerange of extracurricular activities. Someforty-four percent went out for sports;fourteen percent edited their schoolnewspapers; twelve percent were activein drama, speech, and debate; eight percent were active in music; and eight percent held leadership positions in studentgovernment. Among the members of theclass are the principal oboist for theRockford, IL Youth Orchestra, theowner of a construction business, and awhite water river guide.Geographically, the entering class isone of the most diverse college classes inthe country; they come from forty-sevenstates and thirteen foreign countries.Two percent of the class comes fromabroad; seven percent from the South;eight percent from New England; tenpercent from the West; twenty-one percent from the Middle Atlantic states;and fifty-two percent from the Midwest.The ten states sending the largest numbers of students are: Illinois, New York,Ohio, Massachusetts, Maryland, Indiana, New Jersey, California, Michigan,and Wisconsin.This year's class was the ninety-second freshman class to be enrolled at theUniversity, and its members participatedPatricia Evansin the sixtieth Orientation Week. Inaddition to taking placement tests andbeing introduced to each other, the faculty and the University facilities, thefreshmen — and 125 transfer students —were feted with a wide range of socialactivities, including dances, picnics, tripsto ethnic restaurants in Chicago, a visitto a folk song club, and for 200 luckyfreshmen, seats at a playoff game of theChicago White Sox.STUDENTS MEETVISITING FELLOWSWhen Harvard economist JohnKenneth Galbraith accepted PresidentHanna Gray's invitation to be a VisitingFellow on campus next January, he toldher that he looked forward to the factthat after his stint, he felt he could callhimself a "Chicago economist."Galbraith is one of four distinguishedpeople from public life who were invitedas Visiting Fellows this year. Visiting Fellows stay in a dormitory during theirtour — which usually lasts for several(Below) Freshman receives his orientationpacket. John D.

The object of the program is to give students the opportunityto meet with these public leaders formutual exchanges.The first Visiting Fellow this year,General David C. Jones (Ret.) former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff andformer U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff,stayed at Pierce Hall when he visitedcampus in October. He lunched withmembers of the Maroon staff and withthe Benton Fellows.Galbraith will stay at ShorelandHall when he comes to campus in January. Later in the year, San FranciscoMayor Diane Feinstein will be at Burton-Judson Courts and Marvin "Murph"Goldberger, PhD'48, president of theCalifornia Institute of Technology, willstay at Woodward Court.CALLAWAY HEADS BENTONFELLOWS PROGRAMPublic Televison newsman John D.Callaway has been named director of theWilliam Benton Fellowship Program.Callaway, whose "John CallawayInterviews" program is beginning its second year on public television, was forthe past nine years director of news andcurrent affairs at WTTW, Channel 11,Chicago's public television station.A broadcast journalist for twenty-six years, Callaway has been awardedmore than thirty honors, including thePeabody Award and three Emmys.In addition to Callaway, eight Fellows have been named to the program,among them former Maroon editor,John Meyersohn, AB'78, presently anassociate producer at CBS News inNew York.While in the program, Fellows willspend six months at the University inindividualized study programs designedto increase their understanding andknowledge of fundamental issues in thenews. Applicants must be working journalists in electronic media to qualify.The program is underwritten by theWilliam Benton Foundation.NEH FUNDS NEWCOLLEGE COURSEThe College has received a grant ofof $284,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support anew undergraduate concentration, "Fundamentals: Issues and Texts." The grantwill be awarded over a three-year period.This is the College's second majorgrant from NEH this year for support ofan innovative curriculum. The first wasto revise and publish original sourcematerials used in the College's WesternCivilization course."Fundamentals" was inaugurated inthe fall quarter. Students will concentrate on basic human issues they findpersonally compelling and on classictexts that address those issues, accordingto Leon Kass, SB'58, MD'62, the HenryR. Luce Professor in the College and professor in the Committee on SocialThought, who is chairman of the "Fundamentals" courses.SWANSON NAMEDSCIENCE LIBRARIANPatricia Swanson has been namedscience librarian for the University, withmajor responsibility for administeringthe John Crerar Library, now underconstruction.Swanson, formerly head of reference services for the University Librariesand senior lecturer in the GraduateLibrary School, will oversee the upcoming merger of the John Crerar holdingsand the University science collections.Swanson has been on leave for thepast year at the Association for ResearchLibraries, and she is also presently coordinating a program aimed at developinga method for academic service programs.METEOROLOGY "ALUMNI"HOLD 40th REUNIONYou won't find their names in theregistrar's records, yet the 125 peoplewho gathered for dinner in the thirdfloor theatre of Ida Noyes Hall on October 1 felt very much like alumni. Theoccasion was a reunion, to celebrate thefact that it had been forty years sincethey lived on campus, and strode aboutthe quadrangles clad in Air Force blue.They were alumni of the U.S. AirForce's Pre-Meteorology Program, senthere when the Air Force found it had a need for meteorologists to monitorweather conditions over vast areas ofthe globe.At the time, they were a mixture ofvolunteers and draftees. "I was sent herefresh out of high school," recalled Car]Reichert. "We lived in InternationalHouse, and wore uniforms when wewere on campus. The program ran fortwelve months, and we all took sciencecourses."Among the Air Force meteorologyalumni at the renuion were ThomasClassen, head of the World Bank,Donald Osterbrook, who teaches astronomy at University of California, SantaCruz, and Max Palevsky, chairman ofSilicon Systems, computer specialists,and a former trustee of the University.UNIVERSITY HONORSSIX PROFESSORSThe University conferred its highesthonor on six faculty members recentlyby appointing them to "name" professorships.

"We alldo," he replied, citing the rights ofrevolution asserted in the Declaration ofIndependence. He was then asked if hewas a Communist. Anastaplo refused toanswer that question, and thus began arugged eleven-year battle to become anattorney in the state of Illinois. Obstinate and principled, Anastaplo took hiscase to the Illinois State Supreme Court,and eventually, in 1961 to the U.S.Supreme Court. Both courts turned down his appeal, and Anastaplo simply letmatters drop.Anastaplo was blacklisted for decades from law school jobs for refusing toanswer that question. He has carved outfor himself a career as teacher, scholar,prolific author in the fields of philosophy and law and, in the last three years,as a law professor.For years, Anastaplo has been apopular lecturer in the University's BasicProgram of Liberal Education for Adults.For the last three years he has beenteaching in the Loyola University LawSchool in Chicago.Periodically, Anastaplo 's case resurfaces. Twice, in 1966 and again in 1978,friends of his petitioned the StateSupreme Court on his behalf, but inboth instances the court ruled thatAnastaplo himself had to reapply.Anastaplo all along has said that herefuses to chase the courts.A detailed article in Chicago Magazine last winter by Andrew Patner, X'82,a former editor of the Maroon, arousedrenewed interest in the Anastaplo affair.Ten Chicago attorneys signed a petitionto the Illinois Supreme Court asking thatthe court, in essence, reverse its decisionof 1960 and invite Anastaplo to join thebar. In addition, the Illinois State Barsent a letter to the court's Chief Justiceasking essentially the same."We are not doing this for himalone," said AI Hofeld, president of theIllinois State Bar Association. "We aredoing this also for the good of the legalprofession; we want to be able to holdour heads high when we do somethingwrong, when we make a mistake. Wewant to admit it and we want to rectify it."In October, Illinois Supreme CourtJustice Howard C. Ryan refused to consider the state bar's request. Ryan saidit would only be considered if Anastaploreapplied for admission.While Anastaplo appreciates the efforts of Hofeld and others, he admitsthat he's not sure he wants to be admitted to the bar. Instead, he suggests,there's something to be said for remaining as a sobering and salutary reminderto the capriciousness of the McCarthy era."It's well to have reminders of howgood men can go bad when the pressuresbecome strong, when their interests aresomehow challenged and this is what thecontinuation of the case does," saysAnastaplo. — Alex Kotlowitz SThe country's foremostinvestigative reportertalks about his news-gathering techniques. \AWDRY MEANSSEYMOURThe Price of PowerBY JAMES GRAFFSeymour Hersh, AB'58, nemesis ofHenry Kissinger and gadfly of Americanmilitarists, is applying his formidable investigative skills to a cabdriver on the wayin from O'Hare Airport. "Where are youfrom?," he asks the swarthy man."I'm from Chicago.""Oh, come off it. What's your nationality, where are your people from?""I'm Irish." The cabby turns onto theKennedy Expressway with both eyes onthe road. He does not want to discuss thematter any further. Hersh, though, isnothing if not tenacious. He keeps at ituntil the man admits he's from Pakistan. Itturns out, of course, that Hersh has been toPakistan. He knows its cities, its people, itstortured politics. He calls former Pakistani strongman Yahya Khan "one of theworld's great fingernail pullers," and theman begins to warm up. Hersh soon hashim engaged in a minor political dialogue.One gets the feeling that if the driver hadany inside dope, he would unload it onHersh just to see how their informationmatched up. "People talk to me for a lot ofreasons," says Hersh, who conducted over1,000 interviews in compiling The Price ofPower, his scathing indictment of HenryKissinger and his methods during RichardNixon's first presidential term.

Two, I'm interesting — Ialways tell people something interesting.fames Graff, AB'Sl, former associate editor of The University of Chicago Magazine, isstudying for a master's degree in social historyat the University of Munich. And three, I work hard."Without a touch of false modesty,Hersh provides what he calls a "classyexample" of his newsgathering talent.Leading off the book is the charge thatduring the 1968 Humphrey-Nixon race,Kissinger fed candidate Nixon privy information on the Johnson administration'speace talks in Paris while offering theHumphrey campaign discrediting information on Nixon. Hersh did not uncoverthat charge through the snooping and ferreting that people tend to see as the modusoperandi of the investigative reporter. Hewas told about it by Richard V. Allen, thearch-conservative Nixon foreign policyaide and later short-lived National Security Adviser under Ronald Reagan."There was no particular reason Allenand I should hit it off," Hersh says, "but itturns out in the world it doesn't really getdown to whether you're left or right orliberal or conservative or Democrat orRepublican, it's whether you have personal integrity. . . And Allen, after the thirdor fourth interview, when it was clear thatI knew where every bathroom was in theWhite House, and who went where, andhe was even remarking about it, said,'O.K. kid, I'm going to tell you a greatstory.' And it was then he told me howKissinger compromised the peace talks toget to Nixon, the famous double-dealingstory. He chose to make a gift of it, out ofrespect for the fact that I was obviouslyworking my ass off on this project, and Iwasn't just trying to write a cheap book.When they think that you know what youare doing, people will respond to that."As any reader of newspapers and mag-azines over the summer knows, Kissinger'sjob-seeking maneuvers were only the tip ofthe iceberg. In the book's almost 700pages, Hersh exhaustively documents avariety of unsavory disclosures aboutHenry Kissinger and Richard Nixon: theirdetermined and sometimes counterproductive efforts to exclude Secretary ofState William Rogers and Secretary ofDefense Melvin Laird from all major foreign policy decisions; a secret twenty-nineday nuclear alert of the highest state ofreadiness in October, 1969, with nuclearbomb-laden B-52's idling on Americanmilitary runways; Kissinger's meddlings inthe SALT talks, which Hersh claims prevented an agreement limiting multiple independently-targeted reentry vehicles(MIRVs) and undermined possibilities forother negotiating successes; Nixon andKissinger's involvement in American attempts to overthrow Chilean presidentSalvador Allende Gossens; and, above all,the two men's consuming fascination withsecrecy and intrigue.The book's theme is that Kissinger,the only figure to emerge from the Nixonadministration as something of a nationaldarling, was in reality an immensely ambitious man who curried favor from Nixon,heaped abuse on his subordinates, and,most importantly, manipulated vital foreign policy initiatives to get ahead. Thebook batters the one area in which theNixon administration has retained a moreor less untarnished image: foreign policy.For Hersh, Kissinger could do no rightas National Security Adviser. His argument is simple: Kissinger was ambitious;his policies were formulated to further thatambition; therefore, any good he mighthave done for the country or the worldwas an accidental corollary to his own personal advancement. Hersh writes thatKissinger "knew that his own fate hingedon his willingness to wring political benefitfrom national security problems." Whether the benefits accrued to Nixon in the early years or to Kissinger himself later on,the assertion, in instance after instance, isthat he was willing and eager.1 "I view this as a book telling people-^ who don't know how poorly reasoned and| how thinly rationalized many of our na-£ tional security decisions are," Hersh says.| "You know, if you ask what my book isI about, it is about that, the notion that in-i credibly narrow and petty interests, jeal-> ousy, desire to push oneself along, which| is always there, that it so dominates thed decision-making process when it comes togreat life and death decisions."The other thing I'm doing in thisbook is simply describing implicitly whatseems to me to have been the most seriousassault on our Constitution. Nixon notonly was looking in Watergate andelsewhere domestically to overcome theConstitution, but one fair way to read thiswould be that this was a very, very sustained attack on our democracy. Thesetwo guys are r-e-a-1-l-y making a move,and it's a little scary how close they came. Ithink the only thing that tripped them upwas Watergate. We might have had JohnConnally for the second eight years."The Price of Power portrays a relentless drive for the centralization of powerinto the hands of Nixon and Kissinger during the first term. Hersh tells of NationalSecurity Adviser Kissinger regularlyreceiving FBI reports on such things as thelate Martin Luther King's sex life, whichwere of no conceivable use in terms offoreign policy. He demonstrates that Lairdand Rogers were excluded from planningof the 1971 invasion of Laos and other major initiatives until it was too late. Hequotes chief SALT negotiator GerardSmith's statement that "nothing could goforward without (Kissinger's) approval,"and writes that Smith was often completely bypassed as Kissinger negotiatedthrough his own laboriously erected"backchannels."And there are images from thoseyears that convey the sense that somethingwas drastically wrong: some three hundred Army troops armed with rifles andlight machine guns hidden in the corridorsof the White House during the massiveanti-war demonstrations in October andNovember of 1969; Nixon, Kissinger, Attorney General John Mitchell and Nixoncrony Bebe Rebozo drinking heavily,discussing plans for the Cambodian invasion, and watching Nixon's favoritemovie, Patton, as they cruise the Potomacin the presidential yacht; Kissingerphysically humiliating an aide wearing abackbrace by knocking a paperclip off thetable, forcing him to painfully bend downand retrieve it for a third time.Is Kissinger a villain? "I don't understand the word 'villain' in this context,"Hersh says in response to the question."How about war criminal? I think somebody who bombs other people with impunity, I don't know what you call him,maybe he's a mass murderer. I would sayvillain is a little bit weak."Price of Power has become one of themost controversial books on national affairs in recent memory, and the web of criticism it has provoked is knotty andcontradictory. Some think Hersh is profaning the prince of American foreign policy, and they abhor his book. Others thinkhe is toppling a false idol, and they tend tolike it. Between these two poles lies a massof ambivalence, engendered less by thefacts themselves as by what Hersh did notinclude and the tone and intent of what hedid include.The thrust of the negative criticismhas been that the book is a cheap shot,a skewed attempt to destroy HenryKissinger, done for the sake of Hersh's ownpersonal compulsions. Hersh calls this the"obsession-conspiracy theory," and he isnaturally eager to debunk it."I wrote the book at the suggestion ofJim Silberman, the publisher at SummitBooks," Hersh says. "I never thoughtabout writing a book about Kissinger.DON'T THINKYOU HAVE TOCALL HENRYKISSINGER A LIAREVERY DAY, YOUCAN JUST SAYWHAT HE SAIDAND SAY WHATTHE TRUTH IS."Once he was out of office I sort of went onto other things. The fact is Silberman offered me an awful lot of money to leave theNew York Times. Initially he offered me agood contract in '77 but I was too happy atthe Times. We were living in New Yorkthen, my wife (Elizabeth Klein Hersh,AB'62) was in medical school, I didn't feellike starting a book that would involve anawful lot of travel. And then we movedback to Washington, and things were different in '79, the bloom was off the kind ofreporting I did, and so then it seemed itwas a good deal."The proper question, Hersh believes,is whether what he says is true, not whathis motives were in saying it. "What difference does it make what's in my goddamnmind?" he asks with practiced indignity."Who cares? I've written a book of 700pages." And that, he believes, shouldspeak for itself.There can be no doubt, however, that Hersh had an agenda when he began thebook, one laid out by his own outrage atKissinger's policies. "Except for the stuff Iregard as essential in terms of the interoffice intrigue, and the lack of moralitywhich I think is essential to describing theimmoral policy, I avoid talking about hispersonal life, his children, his wife — I'mnot interested in that stuff. I'm not out tohurt him, but the fact that I disliked thepolicies so much made me work that muchharder to find out what I could." Hershand his critics differ, obviously, on whereto draw the line between Kissinger the manand Kissinger the public figure. ButHersh's claim is that the policies oftenarose from Kissinger's personal pride andambition, and that he investigated onlywhat impinged on policy.Even some of the book's proponentsvoice the other central criticism, that thebook lacks analysis. Hersh does not totallyreject this charge. "I'm a great empiricist,"he says. "I don't believe in extrapolationtoo much. That might make some of mycritics laugh, but basically I don't. I don'tthink you have to call Henry Kissinger aliar every day, you can just say what hesaid and say what the truth is. I don't thinkI used the word 'paranoid' more than onceand that was in somebody else's mouth.One of the things I learned as a journalist isif you describe what happens it is a lot better than characterizing it."The book does stay close, sometimesploddingly so, to the day to day decisionmaking process in the White House. Butsome reviewers have put Hersh's empiricism in another light. Harvard Universityprofessor Stanley Hoffman writes, in whatHersh calls "a very serious review" for theNew York Times Book Review, that theissues of morality and ethics Hersh claimsto treat "are raised in the reader's mind butnot directly addressed or fully discussed inthe book." Hersh claims that it is all there,in the policies, in the internecine feuds, inthe wiretapping, the backbiting and thesecrecy. "It's very hard for me to think thatanybody doesn't see this as a very ethicalbook," Hersh says. "I'm telling a moralityfable."Hersh was born in Chicago in 1937and grew up at 47th and Drexel in "a toughneighborhood," so tough, he says, that heand his friends considered the Universityof Chicago to the south a "fag school." Hisfather owned a dry cleaning establishmenton Indiana Avenue and died when Sy andhis twin brother, Alan, were sixteen. Aftergraduating from Hyde Park High School,Hersh attended the University of Illinois atNavy Pier for a semester until an interestedteacher told him he'd be better off at theUniversity of Chicago and set up an interview for him.At the University, Hersh was an adequate if not particularly serious student.One member of the 1955 baseball team remembers him as "a wildly enthusiastic andslightly spastic" teammate; he was also amember of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at56th and Woodlawn. His involvementwith journalism extended to buying theNew York Times daily. "I used to buy itlargely for the crossword puzzle. I'd sitthere in the C-Shop and then there'd be alounge across the hall and you'd sit thereand do the puzzle instead of going to your8:30 or your 9:30 or your 10:30 class."He got his B. A. in history in 1958 andapplied to the Law School for lack of a better idea. He hated it and withdrew in theface of bad grades after his first year.After that he worked as a bartender atan after-hours joint on 55th Street, waitingfor his destiny like so many other HydePark hangers-on. He applied for a job atthe Chicago City News Bureau at the urging of an acquaintance who worked there,but he wasn't sure that was the road hewould take.Months after his application to CityNews, which apparently wasn't coming tomuch, Hersh was invited to play pokerwith some friends who lived in his formerapartment. The game went on all night,and Hersh was sleeping off the night's revelries when the phone rang the next morning. "Hersh?," said the voice on the otherend. "You start on Monday." It was CityNews, calling the only number they hadfor Hersh.However serendipitous the start,Hersh took to journalism with the ferocityof a bull terrier. "He was a guy in a hurry,"remembers Paul Zimbrakos, now city editor at City News. Arnold Dornfeld, longtime night city editor at the bureau,remembers him as "very bright, very enterprising and a little brash." Hersh onlyworked at City News from February toJune of 1960, but his tonier critics haveever since found a snobbish glee in deeming him a "former police reporter fromChicago."When Hersh returned to Chicagoafter a six-month stint as a public relationsofficer at Fort Riley in Kansas, he and acolleague started a small paper on theSouthwest Side called the Evergreen ParkDispatch. It soon established itself as areasonably profitable venture, but thatwasn't enough for Hersh. "One day in '61 or '62 I woke up and I said, 'this is nuts. Idon't want to be a suburban newspaperpublisher. I want to go to Washington.' Iknew that was my ambition already, tocover national events in Washington.Partly it may have been because I wascaught up in the mystique of Jack Kennedyand Camelot, I don't know, but whateverit was the intent always was serious."Hersh got a job with United Press International in Pierre, South Dakota, andin 1963 returned to Chicago to work forthe Associated Press. He thrived with thewire services because he was fast, thorough and committed to getting the newsfor his organization. Dornfeld of CityNews remembers a visit from Hersh afterhe started at the AP. "He needed background on some story he was working on,so I fished out the timesheet (a daily log ofwork done) from a couple of monthsHE BIG PROBLEMWE HAVE IN THISCOUNTRY IS THATSINCE WORLD WAR IIWE'VE GIVEN OURPRESIDENTS, ORTHEY HAVE USURPED,ALMOST DIVINERIGHTS."before. He wanted to take it to the AP, andI said no, and we had quite a tussle over it.I finally got rid of him, but boy, was hepersistent, and that's admirable in a way."The AP was pleased enough withHersh's abilities to send him to Washington in 1965 to cover the Pentagon, wherehe got a reputation as one of the few journalists who preferred to get the news on hisown before it was predigested by Pentagonspokesmen. Hersh was a loud critic of theunspoken rules of press etiquette, thenparticularly strong in the Pentagon. In onecelebrated instance, he sat down with agroup of admirals in the Pentagon cafeteria to ask them a few questions during theirlunch.Hersh has focused on military and national security issues ever since. His 1968book Chemical and Biological Warfare:America's Hidden Arsenal, written afterhe quit the AP in 1967, uncovered an arrayof sloppy and dangerous military proce dures, leading, for instance, to the gassingof hundreds of sheep in Utah due to faultybomber doors and shifting winds. Thebook played an undeniable role in Nixon'sdecision, recently reversed by the Reaganadministration, to halt American production of chemical and biological weapons.Hersh learned to hate the VietnamWar at the Pentagon under RobertMacNamara. When Senator EugeneMcCarthy declared his peace candidacy in1968, Hersh joined him as press secretaryfor three months during the early primaries. When he quit he had no organizationalties and began writing a book about thePentagon.In the midst of that effort came asketchy tip that a young lieutenant was inthe Fort Benning stockade and would becourt-marshalled for killing Vietnamese civilians. Hersh dropped the book and started snooping. A few calls in Washington ledhim to the name William Calley, a fewmore to the name of his lawyer, and soonhe was off to Fort Benning on a surrealhunt for Calley in the maze-like militarybase, weaving with a spy's cunningthrough its torpid bureaucracy. Hersheventually covered tens of thousands ofmiles talking to members of Calley's company without a commitment from anypublication — he had only an American Express card, a promise for a travel grantfrom the Philip Stern Fund for Investigative Journalism, and a borrowed portabletypewriter. The investigation ended withfive searingly matter-of-fact articles on theso-called Pinkville incident, later knownas My Lai.Hersh's inquiry into the My Lai massacre made him the most famous investigative journalist in pre-Watergate America.His account, which he quickly expandedinto a book, My Lai 4: A Report on theMassacre and its Aftermath (RandomHouse, 1970), earned him the 1970 PulitzerPrize for International Reporting, theGeorge Polk Memorial Award, the SigmaDelta Chi Award, a sure slot on the collegespeaking circuit, and more exposure thanany print journalist is accustomed to.When the New York Times hired him in1972, the paper broke with its staid imageand put his face in its promotional ads.Hersh continued to find scoops for theTimes, many of which reappear in fullerform in his present book: Kissinger's rolein wire-tapping his own staff, the secretbombing of Cambodia, Yeoman CharlesRadford's spying in offices of the NSC forthe Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the UnitedStates' role in toppling Chilean presidentAllende.In December of 1974, he wrote in theTimes that the CIA "had violated itscharter by conducting massive, illegal intelligence operations aimed at (domestic)antiwar activists and other American dissidents in the United States." The articlecaused a flurry of controversy that foreshadowed the reaction to his current book.An article in the Village Voice of January27, 1975, reported that the Washingtonpress was "divided among the 'he hasn'tnamed one name' group, the 'he'll doanything to destroy Kissinger' group, the'thank God he's exposing their secret corruption' group, the 'he's the dupe of theCIA group,' and the 'sour grapes' group."Hersh had written that the CIA hadcollected information on "at least 10,000Americans." A commission headed byVice President Nelson Rockefeller laterfound that the figure was closer to 13,000.When the journalism awards season camearound, Hersh received his third of fourPolk Awards, the University of Arizona'sJohn Peter Zenger Award and the SidneyHillman Foundation Award for thearticles.Hersh has been a journalist for overtwenty years and has stalked the corridorsof power for almost that long. The experience has left him disillusioned, even cynical, about both the government and thepress. He sees the executive branch as themost dangerous of the four estates, the legislative branch as the most ineffective, andthe press as the most overrated. Perhaps asan act of mercy, he did not discuss thecourts during the interview."The big problem we have in thiscountry," Hersh says, "is that since WorldWar Two we've given our presidents, orthey have usurped, almost divine rights,King Jamesian sort of rights. One is the divine right to involve our democracy inoverseas adventures anywhere, withoutclearing it with anybody, Congress, thepeople, the press, anybody. The secondinherent right is the right to lie about whatthey've done, and this is a right we justsimply check off — yea, sure, all politicianslie. I'd like to think some people wouldsay, maybe it's time to get a little moremorality and integrity back into the system." Reagan offers no improvement,Hersh thinks, particularly in terms of hisCentral American policies. Hersh calls him"a guy that basically revels in being ignorant. He has no concept of what's goingon, he's a sort of white-shoe guy from California who talks about being poor."Congress and the Democratic Party do not fare much better with Hersh. "Theproblems inherent in our society can onlybe corrected, it seems to me, by the onegroup that gets a D minus for their exerciseof their constitutional function, and thatof course is Congress, which is really acomedy act." Hersh believes that Congresshas failed to be a strong foil to the expansive designs of the executive branch."The Democratic solution to theReagan policy is that if Reagan goes 40 degrees to the right they go 39 degrees to theright, move in a little bit more. I thinkthat's ludicrous and ridiculous and offensive and a betrayal. I think the Democratshave an obligation to be an oppositionparty and they're not. We're letting thewimps run it. Here we are in a situation in1983 where the Democratic candidates,you've got what, five or six wimps, I'dguess you'd call 'em, all vice-presidentialIF THERE'S GOINGTO BE A SOCIALREVOLUTION IN THEU.S., DON'T EXPECTTHE PRESS TO LEAD IT.THEY WONT EVENKNOW ABOUT IT FORSIX MONTHS.'.'candidates."Hersh comes down just as hard on thepress, though with some discomfort sincethat is the sport of his enemies. In hisbook, Hersh claims that some reporterswith good connections to Kissinger wouldwrite according to his wishes in order notto jeopardize their relations with a priceless source. But he is more concerned withwhat the press cannot do than with what itchooses not to do, whether through cowardice or ambition or sympathy."Watergate as popularly conceived isa great victory for the press corps —Woodward and Bernstein knocked out apresident," Hersh says. "My version of it isthe guy gets in office in January, withintwo months he starts secretly bombingCambodia, he's got a secret policy to endthe war in Vietnam, he's making secretthreats; by May, four months into his administration, he begins the wiretappingthat lasts 21 months, the secret bombing that lasts 14 months. He took 110,000 tonsof bombs out on Cambodia without anybody knowing about it. In '70, he can operate with impunity against Allende inChile and also against the American antiwar movement through domestic spyingby the CIA, he's got the CIA working athome and abroad. In '71, if he wants to,and he does, he sets up an internal policeforce and they go after Dan Ellsberg, theybreak into his psychiatrist's office inBeverly Hills and they get away with that."Somebody comes to him in June '72and says they had trouble with a wiretapin Larry O'Brien's office in the Democraticheadquarters, should we reinstall it. Is thisman going to think twice before sayingsure? This man's been able to drop 110,000tons of bombs on Cambodia without beingnailed. Who's he afraid of?"I would say that far from rootinghim out in Watergate, exposing him and,you know, being the winners in Watergate, I would say the press made Watergate inevitable. We simply failed to do thekind of reporting that I don't necessarilythink we could do, but a lot of peoplethink we can. We failed to break any of thebig stories of the first term until after the'72 election. So if anyone has to complainabout the press, it's George McGovern."Seymour Hersh made his reputationas the consummate fastbreaking journalist, always hitting first, always hittinghardest. He still sees this as his role. "I'm aprofessional journalist," he says, "and I'man empiricist, and I find facts, and I havetheories. I guess its the basic heuristic approach. I devise a logical theory out of aseries of facts, a hypothesis. I have thesefacts, I sort them through my head, I figureout what might be the policy, what they'rereally trying to do, and I go after that. AndI can't tell you how many times I've beenright."But it is not simply being right thatgives Hersh satisfaction. He wants to havean impact. "I'm not interested in history,"he says with characteristic brashness, "because I'm trying to change things." Yet hisobjective in The Price of Power is to recallwhat is in fact becoming an era of history,one that will always center around theVietnam War. His book tries to stem thehistorical transformation of the Nixon-Kissinger foreign policy into silent pillarsof accomplishment — Chinese opening,Soviet detente, Vietnem withdrawal — andinstead question seriously the libertiestaken in erecting that monument. ForKissinger, the Realpolitiker, what counts isthe ends. For Hersh, the muckraker, whatcounts is the means. 8Doc Films, atfifty, can claimthe distinction ofbeing the oldestcontinuing filmsociety in theUnited States.I still remember the day. After nearlya lifetime — 12 years, to be precise — ofbeing obsessed with the movies, I finallymet someone who could match my knowledge of movie history and easily outwitme in film theory. I was 17 at the time, afreshman in the College, and we met during Orientation Week at Student Activities Night, where he and a couple of otherupperclassmen presided over a displaytable full of literature on film: John Agee,Sergei Eisenstein, Pauline Kael, andAndrew Sarris — names unfamiliar to methen. After chatting for a while, he invitedme to drop by their office. I did, the verynext day. I knocked on the door timidly —it swung open to reveal a darkened room.Suddenly the light came on, disclosingwalls plastered with old movie posters,celluloid peeking out of tin cans, a sputtering projector — and several pairs ofbleary eyes. I had never felt so at home.Without any prodding, I joined DocFilms.Ted Shen, AB'73, graduated as a Doc member in good standing. He works with computers, reviews music for the Chicago Reader, andstill goes to the movies. Doc Films, whose formal name is theDocumentary Film Group, celebrated itsfiftieth anniversary in 1982. Literallythousands of alumni can recall attendingfilms shown by the group, first in International House, then in Breasted Hall in theOriental Institute, and during the 1940sand 1950s in Room 122 of the Social Science Research Building. Since 1968 DocFilms has screened films in the QuantrellAuditorium in Cobb Hall.According to the registry at NewYork's Museum of Modern Art, Doc Filmscan claim the distinction of being theoldest continuing film society in theUnited States.But that fact, as impressive as it is, hardly begins to tell the story of Doc Filmsas so many have experienced it. For that,mention must be made of the frequentlyoffbeat offerings, the forays into filmmaking, battling schools of criticism, and,more than anything else, intense commitment to film as an art form.Although originally formed as a society to present seldom-seen films to a campus audience, Doc Films has, over theyears, become much more than that. Ithas also been a place for film buffs to findcompanionship with like-minded people,to try their hand at film-making, andalways to voice their often intense love ofmovies. Frequently, the group has provided a forum for serious discussion ofDoc Films members about to runa film, circa 1956.films and their use in education, politics,and propaganda as well as entertainment.Over the years, it has influenced the rangeof films offered by art houses in Chicago,as it educated several generations of students to appreciate films which were ofsuperior quality to many of those available in local movie houses.The origin of Doc Films is a bitobscure. One source says it is an outgrowth of a film society that was formedat the newly-opened International House,by the late Clifton Utley, PhB'26, in 1932.The I-House group called itself ForeignFilms of I-House and showed rare imported films. They are regarded as Doc Films'spiritual founders. Four years later a rival group of like-minded undergraduates began exhibitingcertifiable classics, rented from theMuseum of Modern Art's collection. NedRosenheim, AB'39, AM'47, PhD'53, theDavid B. and Clara E. Stern Professor inthe Department of English and the College, fondly recalls the group's haphazardexistence."We had two or three guys, and weused to show movies in Breasted Hall, inthe Oriental Institute. I wasn't a wild aficionado. People who were involved wereB.M.O.C. types. You know what thatmeans, don't you?" Because of theB.M.O.C. (big man on campus in the singular), running a film club acquired the status of a glamorous extracurricularendeavor, worthy of mention in Cap &Gown.The "official" beginning of Doc Filmstook place in 1941 at a late-night gatheringof another group of I-House residents.This new generation of film enthusiastssaw themselves as cultural missionaries, abreed apart from their predecessors. Theyvastly preferred documentaries over "frivolous" art films, and expressed their ideology in the group's new name, "Documentary Film Group." According to theirleader, John (Jack) S. Atlee, AB'41, DocFilms "showed only films which had clearsocial significance," and its programsserved as "genuine, and very vital,forums" on unemployment, labor problems, race relations and other importantissues of the day.This policy continued as an article offaith through much of the 1940s but theesoteric had to be balanced with the commercial. (This balancing act was to tax thefiscal skills of future Doc Films officers.)Gradually, more and more narrative filmscrept onto the schedule. Not just any narrative films, but those that met stringentcritical standards and served educationalpurposes. The most popular among thesetended to be the latest films from Europe.One eyewitness from the period remarked:"On nights when the waiting line extendsdown the corridors of Social Science thegroup is almost certainly showing a JeanGabin film, for this actor is especiallypopular with college girls studyingFrench." The showing for November 21,1944, was listed as "Grand Illusion(Gabin, French)." The same film is, ofcourse, now considered a classic of themedium, and while the name of Gabin hasfaded somewhat, that of the film's director, Jean Renoir, is now regarded as oneof the most important in the history of film.For those so inclined, informal discussions were held after film showings,many of them lasting late into the night.The group even offered occasional courseson the art of film, complete with syllabi.The cinematic education was not confinedto the theoretic, however. Members wereencouraged to learn production techniques.Occasionally, Doc Films membershave ventured into film-making. In the1950s they made a film on dormitory life,and shot footage of the University Theatreproduction of "The Inspector General." Inthe early 1960s they produced a documentary on the College.But those were temporary wanderings from Doc Films's main occupation,the screening of films. The format ofweekly showings of classic art films andsocially conscious documentaries (theformer invariably outnumbering the latter) remained essentially unaltered untilthe early 1960s. But by the dawn of the1950s, the group's cumbersome name hadfallen into disuse. In its place, peopleadopted the nickname by which the groupis known today: Doc Films.It's been said that ever since its documentary days Doc Films has observedreligiously the motto, "show films youcan't see elsewhere." Throughout the1950s avant-garde films were taboo incommercial theatres so naturally DocFilms's agenda showcased the latest effortsby Kenneth Anger, Maya Deren, StanVanderbreek and the like — to the annoyance of the city fathers, who vehementlyobjected to sexuality and surrealism (notto mention political statements) on thescreen. (This defiance of possible censorship might have fueled the rumor that DocFilms was on the attorney general's infamous list of subversive organizations.)Some of these experimental short filmsformed a crucial part of one alumna's cultural education at the University. "I wasat what I think of as the historic screeningof Kenneth Anger's 'Fireworks' in 1950,"wrote Susan Sontag, AB'59, author ofNotes on Camp, On Photography andother books and essays. "Kenneth Burke(the literary critic) and his wife were sitting in the same row with me, and his wifepassed out at the climax of the film. Iremember many other wonderful programs; they were the true beginning of my knowledge of film and film history."Though some alumni might dispute it,Doc Films's "golden age" fell roughlybetween 1965-1974. This was a time whenmembers of Doc Films came under theheavy sway of the politique des auteurs.The auteur theory, which regards thedirector as the most vital force behind afilm, was advanced by the Parisian journal Cahiers du cinema in the 1950s. WhenAndrew Sarris, a few years later, startedreviewing films for New York's VillageVoice, he became an eloquent spokesmanfor the auteur theory. Like his Frenchcounterparts, Sarris believed in thesupremacy of American films. In hisbook, The American Cinema, Sarrisstated his case with a comprehensiveranking of American directors. The thinvolume was seized as a rallying point byDoc Films members, who long had harbored a secret love for westerns, melodramas, and other genres considered tawdry by mainstream critics.For almost ten seasons, the studentswho ran Doc Films revolutionized theprogramming approach. Like typical University of Chicago students, they did theirresearch, and came up with film serieswhich highlighted the oeuvres of American filmmakers and neglected genres, suchas the western films of John Ford. Theyalso expanded the schedule twofold. Dedicated to the cinema as none of their predecessors had been — their Galoise-stainedfervor must have rivalled that of theCahiers crowd — they cultivated an encyclopedic knowledge of the movies andkept night-owl hours. The height of theirzeal was demonstrated by all-night orgiesof cult items by cineasts maudits such asEdgar G. Ulmer, whose low-budget filmDetour, shot in twenty-one days, conveysa sense of desperate existentialism throughits sleazy looks and has gained a reputation as the darkest of films noir. Not content with second-hand references, DocFilms routinely issued invitations to theoccupants of Sarris's pantheon. Many ofthese — Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawkes,Fritz Lang, Josef von Sternberg, NicholasRay, George Cukor, to name a few — didaccept. Their visits — the droll exchanges,the drunken escapades, the juicy gossip-sessions — are rich sources of anecdotes,the stories that make up the main body of Selling tickets (top, left) and Doc Filmsmembers in the 1940s (top, right). Doc Filmsposters (center). Doc Films projectionist andcameraman, (bottom) in the 1960s.Doc Films's oral lore. One sample: Whenvon Sternberg, the auteur of The BlueAngel, visited campus to lecture on hislast film with Marlene Dietrich, he hadgone to great lengths to obtain a print ofthe film — Dietrich's print. The showing ofThe Devil is a Woman went on wellenough, until the audience smelled smoke.Everyone, including von Sternberg,turned around and saw the print burningin a poorly ventilated projector. Thedirector was not amused.For five years, from 1968-73, DocFilms published a magazine, Focusl, whichheadlined interviews with some of the visiting directors, and included scholarly articles and lighter fare. During its existence,the periodical impressed established critics, and was responsible for focussing critical attention on Frank Borzage, a three-time Oscar-winner famous for his melodramas of the 1930s (including SeventhHeaven and Three Comrades) ¦ comedianJerry Lewis; and the B movies — no meanaccomplishment, even today. Focusl wasrevived last fall as Doc Films's quarterlyfilm guide. Two of the writers from theoriginal Focusl, David M. Kehr, AB'75and Myron Meisel, AB'72, have since pursued careers as critics with auteurist bents.Charles F. Flynn II, AB'71, MBA'77, co-edited the highly influential, and quintessential^ Doc-ish anthology, Kings of theB's.(1975, E.P. Dutton,Inc.)The advocacy of auteurism coincidedwith, and was part of, the countercultureactivities of the late 1960s and early 1970s.That Doc Films no longer needs to defineitself in opposition to the formal academicprograms of the University has been symbolized by the hiring of Gerald Mast, thefilm historian and theorist, to add coursesin film study to the curriculum. Doc members now can (and do) take courses in filmhistory and theory, while the assignmentsand syllabi of film courses take advantageof the richness of Doc Films's quarterlyofferings. The archive of motion pictureprints which Doc Films has managed tobuild over the years has been combinedwith the University's new film archive andstudy center, allowing Doc members andother students research access to an enormous collection of films.In the mid-1970s, Doc Films began toconcentrate on achieving financial Stabiles/Edward T, MyersGerald Mast (top, left).

In 1977, it merged with another campus film group, Contemporary EuropeanFilms, leaving as its only serious campusrival Law School Films, which operatesacross the Midway. Today, Doc Films hasgrown to a size unforeseen by previous generations. It is a dominant presence at theUniversity, and a noticeable factor in thehabits of Chicago's moviegoers. It claimsmore than 150 members, shows at leastone movie a day, and attracts well over2,500 patrons in an average week. (Plansfor the renovation of Ida Noyes Hall callfor the establishment of a modern cinema,in space now occupied by a gymnasium. Itis expected that Doc Films will switch itsactivities to the cinema, and office spacewill be provided for the group.)In 1982, Elizabeth Hutar, AB'83, waselected chairperson of Doc Films, the firstwoman to hold the position. Hutar slatedtwo special events as part of Doc Films'fiftieth anniversary observance. For thefirst, in a gesture that paid tribute to thegroup's auteurist heyday, she invited director John Milius (who is the son of ElizabethRoe Milius, PhB'28), to campus for aweekend. Milius, who co-scripted the filmApocalyspe Now and directed The Windand the Lion, regaled his audiences withhis unorthodox views on literature andaesthetics, and told tales about his colleagues and about the California motorcycle gang, Hell's Angels. It was a memorable weekend for Doc members.The other event arranged by Hutarwas a homecoming for Doc Films alumnusAaron Lipstadt, AB'74. While working onhis dissertation at Northwestern University, Lipstadt landed a job in Hollywoodas personal assistant to B movie mogulRoger Corman. Under Corman's tutelage,Lipstadt supervised a string of New WorldPictures (Corman's company) releases.Early last year Lipstadt directed his firstfilm, a sci-fi thriller called Android. (Anandroid is an automaton with a humanform.) The film, which was shown at theopening of Doc Films's golden anniversary celebration, pays homage to the DocFilms way of life. In one scene, an androidwith an insatiable curiousity, views oldmovies. He sits motionless, totally entranced by the flickering images in frontof him. The homage was not lost on theaudience, who gave Lipstadt a rousingGerald "Jerry L ovation.Over the years, Doc Films has drawnits members from fields as disparate asmathematics and microbiology. While allof them no doubt were in love with cinema, most regarded Doc Films as a worthwhile extracurricular activity, and entertained no thought of pursuing film-relatedcareers. But quite a few — particularly officers who served during the group's "goldenage" — saw Doc as a training camp to a lifedevoted to the movies. Among the Docalumni whose careers now deal with cinema in one form or another are: Ernest(Chick) Callenbach, PhB'49, AM'53, founding editor of the highly regarded journal,Film Quarterly. He is an editor at theUniversity of California Press, where hehas supervised publication of some of thefinest books on film history and aesthetics.Gerald Mast, AB'61, AM'62, PhD'67,professor in the Department of EnglishLanguage and Literature, in the College,and on the Committees for General Studies in the Humanities and Art and Designat the University, is a one-man cinemadepartment. He also is the author of several books on films, including A ShortHistory of the Movies and The ComicMind, (both University of Chicago Press)and Howard Hawkes: Storyteller (OxfordUniversity Press.)Vernon Zimmerman, AB'62, one ofthe makers of the legendary documentaryon the College, moved to California aftergraduation and worked as a scriptwriter.He later turned to directing and made aseries of low-budget movies known fortheir intelligence and irony. His films,including Unholy Rollers and Fade toBlack, were the subject of a retrospectiveat the Hof Film Festival in West Germanylast fall.Rick Thompson, X'66 who was thefirst Doc Films chairman to present theauteurist theory, is now teaching film inAustralia.Terry Curtis Fox, AB'70, served astheatre critic for the Village Voice for fiveyears. He lives in Hollywood with hiswife, Susan Lerner, AB'73, and is pursuing a career writing both for the theatreand the movies. He has had several playsproduced, including Cops by Chicago'sOrganic Theatre and the Richard Schechner Performance Group in New York; andJustice by Playwright's Horizon, NewYork. His latest play, The Pornographer'sDaughter, will be presented in January bythe Chicago Theatre Project. He's alsobeen an O'Neil Fellow at the National Playwright's Conference at the Eugene O'NeillTheatre Center, Waterford, CN.Myron Meisel, AB'72, earned a lawdegree after leaving the College, and joineda Hollywood firm specializing in entertainment law. Lately he has been involvedwith movie production. He still practiceshis first love — film criticism — for variousmagazines and newspapers, includingAmerican Film, Rolling Stone, and FilmComment. He is a member of the LosAngeles Film Critics Association.Michael Mahern, AB'72, MBA'73, isan advertising and marketing researchspecialist whose most recent assignmentwas the advertising campaign for the re-release of Warren Beatty's film Reds.Frank Gruber, AB'74, also earned alaw degree after graduation, and has beenwith a Hollywood law firm specializing inthe entertainment field for the last fewyears.Aaron Lipstadt, AB'74, is preparingto direct his next movie, City Limits.David M. Kehr, AB'75, started reviewing films for the weekly newspaper, Chicago READER, while still in the College.He became its first-string critic aftergraduation. Highly respected for his intelligence, erudition, and caustic wit, Kehr isone of two Chicago critics elected to theexclusive National Society of Film Critics.Meanwhile, a new generation of students is preparing to carry on the traditions of Doc Films. As Liz Hutar preparedto graduate, she remarked:"I see a new core of hard-workingfirst and second-year students ready totake over. They talk movies incessantly."Elected to succeed Hutar was MichaelKotze, a third-year student with a precocious command of movie trivia and a flairfor writing alliterative bon mots that havealways been a hallmark of Doc Films'sbrochures. When asked about his involvement in Doc Films, Kotze replied: "I'vebeen going to the movies since I was a little kid. Last year I went to a lot of Docshowings, and then a friend asked me tojoin. It was only inevitable." 919NEVER M TOOFREQUENTA m PHOENIXTTTT'C Qrr/^\pV of how the University chose a legendary1 JLl E O A V>/1\ 1 bird and a motto for its coat of arms."Argent a phoenixgules, langued azure, in flamesproper.

Otherwise, take alook at page 25, and the coat of arms ofthe University of Chicago.As inseparable a part of the Univer-Michael Alper, AB'81, AM'83, formerassociate editor of The University of ChicagoMagazine, is a doctoral candidate in theDepartment of English. sity's history as its coat of arms mightseem, it has not always been that way. Infact, it was not until 1910, nineteen yearsafter the University's founding, that anyone seriously got around to proposing ashield that would be symbolically appropriate for the University, acceptable to allparties involved in its approval, correctaccording to the 800-year-old standardsof heraldry, and good-looking as well.To that end, the board of trusteesengaged a heraldic expert from Boston,one Pierre de la Chaignon la Rose, toassemble their vague notions into a realcoat of arms. The first thing la Rose didwas all but discard the trustees' two principle suggestions.They had hoped, naturally enough,to have the shield done in maroon andwhite, which had recently been designatedas the school colors. But la Rose dispensedwith that idea by informing them thatmaroon was a color that simply did notBy Michael Alper. Photographs by Michael P. Weinstein exist in heraldry (except in rare instances,as when an object is displayed "all proper, "that is, in its natural colors). They settledfor the next best thing, however, by usingthe tinctures, or heraldic colors, of gules(red) and argent (silver or white). Thiscolor combination had the added advantage of satisfying the heraldic requirementthat argent and gold, the tincturesrepresenting metals, never be placed incontact with one another, and that colors,such as gules and azure, not be placedagainst colors.The trustees proposed two possiblecharges, or heraldic figures, for the coatof arms: a book and a tower. The bookwas to be inscribed with the University'smotto, when and if the trustees ever cameup with one. This charge was readily approved by la Rose, who noted that bothOxford and Harvard (respectively theoldest British and American educationalfoundations) prominently display openbooks on their coats of arms.He had doubts about the tower,though. The trustees wanted to show the"Founder's Tower," a stylized version ofMitchell Tower, which was the mostprominent building on campus at thetime. But la Rose told them that the towercould only be justified by precedent if itwas strictly modeled on the conventionalrook of a chess set. He further objectedthat, as heraldic charges, such "architectural sentimentalities" as the Founder'sTower were too literal. Classically, thepurpose of a coat of arms is simply identification, to distinguish its bearer fromall {"Anna sunt distinguendi Causa"). InHutchinson Commons (right). In past days, traditionrequired that one not step on it.A rafter in Swift Hall Commons (above) and lobby of the Surgery / Brain Research Institutes (below).for good in 1886. Nevertheless, the newUniversity was a successor to the old inseveral respects; each had been incorporated under the auspices of the BaptistChurch; each had been founded to serveas one of the premiere institutions ofhigher education in the West; and eachwas honored by the presence and participation of many of the same scholars andadministrators. Taking care to avoid thepitfalls into which the earlier school hadstumbled, the new University's foundersintended their school to resemble thephoenix, not just in its auspicious rebirth,but in its longevity as well.Not surprisingly, the trustees concurred with la Rose's opinion. At theirmeeting of August 16, 1910, the first orderof business was to adopt his design — anopen book displayed across a phoenix.There remained the little matter of deciding what to inscribe on the book.Suggestions for a motto for theUniversity were not lacking. In the weekspreceding the trustees' final decision, nofewer than two dozen possibilities cameup for consideration. Most of these involved some sort of variation on thosetime-honored academic catch-phrases,Veritas, Libertas, Virtus, and Lux, all ofwhich President Judson dismissed as"affected." His personal favorites wereServire Et Servare (To Serve and Protect)and Sine Lege Nulla Libertas (No FreedomWithout Law), but even he had to admitthat these noble ideas of a university'sUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE Winter 1984deciding upon a major charge, la Roserecommended to the trustees that theyconsider some standard charge, incidentally appropriate for the University, astheir best bet. The one he had in mindwas the phoenix.As any student of classical mythology can tell you, the phoenix is a fabulousbird associated with Egyptian and Greeksun worship. According to such authorities as Hesiod and Herodotus, it is shapedsomething like an eagle, and is gracedwith an indescribably beautiful song andbrilliant gold and purple plumage. (Coin-cidentally to the University's use of thesymbol, the word phoenix is also Greekfor the dark purple-red color of Phoenician dye, or Tyrian purple.) But the phoenix's most extraordinarycharacteristic, of course, is its method ofprocreation. Only one exists at any giventime; after living on air for some five hundred years (some authorities put it as highas seven thousand years), it immolatesitself on a nest of aromatic branches.From its ashes, a new phoenix is born.Although la Rose was the first to suggest the phoenix, the University had beenlinked to the mythical bird, at least circumstantially, since it opened. Just beinglocated in Chicago had a lot to do withthat. The remarkable resurgence of thecity following the Great Fire of 1871 wasfrequently compared to that of the phoenix. At the 1893 Columbian Exposition(the University's neighbor along the Midway during its first year of operation), theimage of the phoenix abounded as plentifully as the University's more varied chimera, adorning cornices, gateposts, andbanners. The Exposition's "I Will" figure,representing the city's spirit of rebirth anddetermination, proudly bore a phoenix onits headdress.Aside from its meaning to the city ofChicago, the phoenix held a special meaning for the University itself. For the sakeof starting with a clean slate, the University's founders had avoided any formalconnection to the old University of Chicago, which had been located twentyblocks to the north, and which hadopened, plunged into debt, and folded inthe space of thirty years, closing its doors^ "»w¦npurpose made for rather stodgy Latin.Paul Shorey, professor of Classicsand recipient of President Judson's frequent requests to translate uninspiredslogans like "Truth, the Supreme Thing,"into inspiring Latin, gets final credit forcoming up with the motto as it nowstands. The story (as the secretary to thepresident, David A, Robertson, AB'02,told it in the May 1912 issue of TheUniversity of Chicago Magazine) goesthat Shorey was traveling to an easternclassical meeting, and "found the wheelsof his Pullman clicking again and againthat line from the introduction to[Tennyson's] In Memoriam:Let knowledge grow from more tomore. In the more compact Latin hephrased it Scientia crescat."It is a charming account, but itdidn't happen that way. Actually, CharlesHutchinson, treasurer of the board of trustees, had earlier suggested quite matter-of-factly, "The Increase of Knowledge,"which President Judson did up as ProScientia Augenda and then sent off to thelate William Gardner Hale, head professorof Latin, for a more elegant translation.Shortly thereafter, Hale and Shorey didindeed take that train ride together, during which (clicking of train wheels notwithstanding) Shorey offered his versionof Hutchinson's motto for consideration.For the second half of the motto, theselection committee sought some expression of the ideal of service which, they believed, distinguished the modern university. This time Shorey turned to theAeneid for his inspiration; specifically, apassage in the sixth book, in which Vergiltells of the Elysian after-life of those whohad enriched or adorned human life whileon earth: "Inventus aut qui vitam excolureper artes." From that he derived vitaexcolatur. Putting the two phrases together, Shorey came up with a motto that notonly suited the purposes of all concerned,but which also scanned beautifully in bothlanguages:Crescat Scientia; Vita Excolatur.Let knowledge grow from moreto more,And so be human life enriched.The board of trustees approved themotto on January 4, 1911, treasurerHutchinson laconically offering as an official translation of Professor Shorey shandiwork, "Let knowledge be increasedthat life may be enriched."Work began shortly thereafter topublicize the new coat of arms. Its designwas carved into the architectural featuresthroughout Harper Memorial Library,which was under construction at the time.While this was being done, however,some English heralds got hold of thedesign and raised one final objection: theplacement of the book was illogical, foralthough the phoenix might not be consumed by the flames, the book certainlywould be. To placate the literal-minded,the trustees authorized one last change,fait affe<%« which brought the coat of arms to its present form: the book was placed in aseparate area of the shield, the chief, ortop third of the shield.That, apparently, was all the changethat was needed. Despite the species' peculiar reproductive habits, a whole flockof phoenixes now inhabits the University.According to ancient legend, only onePhoenix exists at any given time. But nothingwas said about reproducing the image, so theUniversity 's chosen symbol abounds in manyplaces on the quadrangles — as can be seen inthe illustrations which accompany this article.As a Christmas gift, we present the University 's coat of arms on the opposite page.

There is noone direction that, in itself, is right. In trying to meet scholars' needs, the library'sbook selectors must make their decisions ina context of diverse and sometimes conflicting options, all of which may be compelling.The obligation to satisfy the requirementsof current teaching and research is the mostintensely felt. It is the most immediate. Butlibrarians must also always be looking forward, to what will be the areas of scholarlyactivity over the coming years, and building a literature base for that activity. Evenas they do this, the claims of the past areconstantly there to be reckoned with — thoseolder books and documentary materials thatcome onto the market and should be acquired for any collection that is to have therange and depth to support major research. Every option must be weighed against theothers as calls on the library's resources.Fortunately, the University of ChicagoLibrary has benefitted from an increasingnumber of friends, those many donorswhose continuing generosity can be measured in very practical terms of what it hasmeant to strengthening the Library'scollections.

"Lay on MacDuff."Philip B. Kurland, the William R. Kenan,Jr. Distinguished Service Professor in the College and professor in the Law School, is a foremost authority on the Supreme Court. Hefounded The Supreme Court Review, an annual volume of criticism of the work of theU.S. Supreme Court, which he edits withGerhard Casper, the Williatn B. Graham Professor and dean of the Law School, and DennisHutchinson associate professor in the NewCollegiate Division and the Law School. By Philip B. KurlandIf the pollsters and sociologists haveproperly read the minds and hearts ofthose they have examined, no institutionof this nation, whether government orchurch or press or academia or any of theso-called professions has the confidence ofa majority of the American population.So, too, within government, not the President or the presidency, not the Senators orRepresentatives or the Congress as a whole,not the nine Justices or the Supreme Courtitself can claim the trust of the people toperform well the tasks in which they arepurported to be engaged. Nonetheless, it istrue that, by the same measure but on acomparative basis, the Supreme Court ofthe United States is held in higher esteemthan other governmental branches and ineven greater esteem than most nongovernmental institutions.Why this preference should be true isnot made clear, unless it is that the judicialprocess — especially at its highest level —is the least understood of all, becausethe Justices are engaged in what DanielBoorstin once labelled "the mysteriousscience of the law." Certainly the processesof adjudication at the Supreme Court levelare mysterious, but assuredly they are notscientific. The answer may be that thepublic more often than not agrees with theconclusions that the Court reaches, at leastas these are described in the simplistic terms of the media news reports and editorial comments. Or it may be the presidential and legislative officeholders have submitted their credentials to the public inorder to secure their offices and a largepart of that public has voted against themfor good reasons or bad, while the capacities, credentials, and personalties of theJustices are never really matters of publicknowledge or concern. On the other hand,while the Constitution does not require it,all Supreme Court Justices are and havebeen lawyers and lawyers as a group certainly do not enjoy the confidence of thepeople. At best, lawyers are regarded asnecessary evils and there are many whodoubt that they are necessary.It may well be that the veneration ofthe Supreme Court attaches to the presentincumbents not because of what they areor what they do but because they appearto be the voice of the Constitution whichdoes enjoy a special place in the hearts ifnot the minds of Americans. The Justicesrepresent a higher calling than should betheirs merely because they are ensconcedin the seats of the mighty in the marbletemple at the top of the hill looking downboth on the halls of Congress and the presidential palace on Pennsylvania Avenue.If, however, the Justices are revered as thevoice of the Constitution rather thanbecause of their intrinsic worth, the question remains whether they are masquerading for what they are not or at least whether they are idealized for what they are notrather than realized for what they are.Surely it is true that they representthemselves as spokesmen for the mandatesof our highest law. The Constitution purports still to be touchstones of their judgmental processes. But the Justices havelong since disabused themselves, if noteveryone else, of the fact that they are confined by the terms of that document. Andthis has been true ever since John Marshallwrote the seminal opinions in Marbury v.Madison, establishing the power of thecourts to invalidate national legislation,and McCulloch v. Maryland, establishingthat the Constitution contains implicit aswell as explicit authority and restraints.Thus, as the Court said in the infamouscase of United States v. Nixon, therebycreating an executive privilege for whichthere is no authority in the Constitution orits origins, "Many decisions of this Court,however, have unequivocally reaffirmedthe holding of Marbury that it 'is emphatically the province and duty of the judicialdepartment to say what the law is.' " Nowhere else — except perhaps when a parentadmonishes a child — are you likely to findso bald a proposition that something is sobecause the speaker has said it is so onmany earlier occasions. Legitimation ofusurped power by ipse dixit is, of course,not confined to the Court. Nor is it onlythe judiciary that says arrogation of poweris justified by earlier examples of the illegitimate use of that power. But then the Nazistaught us many lessons in government,one of which was that iteration is themother of "Truth." Like kings of yore, thedeclaration by the Court that "l'etat, c'estmoi," becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.It should be noted, however, that ifthe words used by Marshall and Burger arethe same, their meaning was different.Marshall was saying that when a Court,charged with the resolution of a case orcontroversy, had to choose between tworules, neither of which was a creature ofthe Court, that choice was a judicial one.Burger was saying that it was for the Courtto determine on the basis of what itthought to be good public policy what therule should be and then, after creating therule, to apply it to the case before it. Themaking of laws is not merely "saying whatthe law is,"in the Marshallian sense, but anact of a continuing constitutional convention by nine non-elected delegates.If we are told that common-lawcourts always "made" law, there should benone to deny it. It did so, however, asOliver Wendell Holmes said, only "inter-stitially," filling gaps in a jurisprudencethat was judicially created in the first placeby the resolution of cases before it. In "thegood old days," the function of a courtwas to decide a controversy between theparties before it for the reasons stated in itsopinions. Since, in the good old days legislatures largely abstained from framingrules for the resolution of such controversies between individuals, and there wereno written Constitutions, the courts tend- i ed to be the makers of laws at retail . This isf somewhat different from the assumptionof the task of determining what social poli-/ cies should control the behavior of ther population at large. Historically, a court'scommands were directed only to the indi-s viduals before it. The Supreme Court'scommands were directed only to the indi-2 viduals before it. The Supreme Court as2 super-legislature considers the formulationt of new rules as its principal task and theresolution of controversies as secondaryf ones. And the Court now clearly bases the; creation of these rules on its own personalpredilections not by the phrases of theConstitution nor in terms of the expressedr intentions of those who wrote the Consti-) tution. Clearly it expects its mandates tof be obeyed not only by those within its jurisdiction but by those within the jurisdic-t tion of the United States. And this notiont of what the Supreme Court is supposed to; be doing is strongly supported by most; academic lawyers and political scientists.i If this means that, like God, the Constitu-t tion is now dead, So be it! they tell us.Hamilton told us that the nationalcourts would have neither will nor forcebut only judgment. Jefferson told us thatthe judiciary would reach for power untilall lawmaking was in its grasp. Hamiltonsold the Constitution to the peoplethrough The Federalist on the basis of thismisrepresentation of nationalist objectivesof his times. Jefferson foresaw better — anddeplored — what the future might bring.Neither of them noted that whichever role,that of a supreme judicial body for the resolution of cases, or that of a royal courthanding down ukases for the governanceof the people, the task would be badly performed by the judges. But this is not theplace for spelling out the deficiencies of theCourt's behavior whatever its model. Per haps that performance is encapsulated, albeit in slight hyperbole (if there is sucha thing as slight hyperbole) by "a simplecountry lawyer" named Sam J. Ervin, Jr.,in a recently published book:On arriving at the luncheon, 1 ascertained that Chief Justice Warren was tobe my right-hand luncheon companionand observed five or six of the other justices among the luncheon guests. I saidto myself in the words of the old hymn,This is the day I long have sought andwept because I found it not."When it became appropriate for meas master of ceremonies to make someremarks, I said the following, as best Ican reconstruct from memory:"I'm always delighted to be withlawyers for several reasons. One is theyalways furnish such congenial companionship. Another reason, which I maynot be permitted to state in the presenceof the chief justice and his associates, isthat when lawyers pray — which is seldom — they pray with such sincerity. Thisobservation is illustrated by the story ofthe young lawyer who attended an evangelic service and was unexpectedly calledon to pray. He prayed this prayer whichcame straight from his lawyer heart: 'Stirup much strife among thy people, Lord,lest thy servant perish.' "An old hymn says, "The Lord movesin mysterious ways his wonders to perform." It may be surprising to the chief justice and his associates to be told that theLord uses even them as an instrument toanswer the young lawyer's prayer. Whenthey hand down a decision, as they usuallydo, in which five of them reach the samelegal conclusion after traveling five separate and irreconcilable legal paths andtheir four brethren dissent from the conclusion on four mutually repugnantgrounds, they stir up much strife amongthe Lord's people and provoke much litigation and thus answer the young lawyer'sprayer effectively. But when the SupremeCourt undertakes to explain in a new casewhat it meant in a former case, it makesconfusion more confounded than ever andanswers the young lawyer's prayer muchmore effectively.The question I should ask at this pointis whether its adoring public would approve either of the Supreme Court's role orits performance as much as we are told itdoes, if it took the trouble to find out whatthe Court is really doing. I expect that theCourt is approved by the public for itssymbolic significance, not its real one. Totell the truth about it is to cry in the wilderness. But, then, each of us gets his satisfactions in his own way. And law schoolprofessors are as quirky as anyone so thatcrying in the wilderness is an oft-indulgedpastime. 9"Constitutional, unconstitutional!

Keller, Jr., DB'61, AM 62,PhD'67, American Protestanism and UnitedStates Indian Policy, 1869-82 (University ofNebraska Press). President Ulysses S. Grantannounced in 1869 the most radical bureaucratic and ideological reform in the history ofU.S. Indian policy: to curb the graft and corruption that characterized Indian affairs, hewould open the way for the administration ofIndian agencies by churches. His so-called"Peace Policy" had profound implications notonly for relations between the churches (largelyProtestant) and the federal government butalso for Indian-white relations, moral reform,anti-Catholicism, and pacifism. Keller's studyis the first comprehensive treatment of the subject. Keller confirms the notions that well-meaning humanitarians in the nineteenth century often contributed to the destruction ofnative cultures.

Anthropological theory, from its beginnings in philosophy and linguistics, has provided Westernthought and politics with deep-rooted imagesand convictions amounting to a kind of political cosmology, says Fabian. Anthropologistsare "here and now," the objects of their discourse are "there and then," and the existenceof the "other" — the "savage," the "primitive,"the "under-developed world" — in the sametime as ours is regularly denied. This is the central thesis of Fabian's book, a critique of theemergence and present shape of anthropological discourse. Fabian is professor of anthropology at the University of Amsterdam.William J.

The horrible living conditions ofthe peasantry during this time, while oftenmentioned in other books on the period, havenever before been rendered with the frighten-ingly realistic detail that Lincoln provides."Lincoln is a Presidential Research Professor atNorthern Illinois University, and has spent atotal of four years in the U.S.S.R. as anexchange scholar.David H.
