The editor reserves the right to shortenletters.KASS'S OWN DILEMMAEditor:The dilemma described by Dr. Kass in yourSUMMER/84 issue belongs more to him (andmany other observers) than to the situation hedescribed. Look at his description of science asthe "belief that man is just a collection of molécules, an accident on the stage of évolution, afreakish speck of mind in the mindless uni-verse, fundamentally no différent from otherliving— or even non-living— things." The rhe-torical content of "just" a collection, "accident," and "freakish" (with their négativeconnotations), and the question of what is fun-damental, arise from his own emotional reaction to science, not from science itself.The deterministic assumptions of the sci-entif ic method need not imply a deterministiccharacter for the object of that method. Thismay be a dif f icult concept to grasp for some ofthose who are accustomed to looking at intel-lectual history by finding metaphoric influences, but it is intégral to the scientif ic method,and a common tool, I believe, of logicians.Peter Rosen, AB'70Ithaca, NYMAKING LIBERALS'ENDANGERED SPECIES'Editor:Swell! I am happy to learn that there is atleast one University of Chicago graduate so libéral that he contributes "hundreds of dollars"to support a magazine in favorof 'the sexual mo-lestation of small children. And that was thepoint of the lawsuit against The Body Politic,about which Edgar Z . Friedenberg was so terri-bly upset in his article, "An American Looks atCanadian Civil Rights." However, I do notshare Friedenberg 's concern, am sorry the lawsuit failed, and feel ail who molest childrenshould be put in jail for long terms along withtheir supporters.It is my belief that Dr. Friedenberg 's articlewill so alienate other University of Chicagoalumni like myself living in Canada that libérais may become a dying species, even in east-ern Canada.Another point in his article; apparently isthat nurses who kill between 12 and 20 babiesby surreptitious lethal injections should go un-punished, for the woman named is still consid-ered a prime suspect in ail deaths. I cannotagrée. The crime was so serious that the Attor-ney General of Ontario would hâve been heldderelict in his duty to hâve failed to take every possible légal action to détermine and punishthe murderess.Friedenberg apparently feels ail right-thinking people should be in favor of childmurder and child molestation. Where did heget his ideas? From Leopold and Loeb?Philip C. Norem, SB'62Fort Erie, Ontario, CanadaFriedenberg replies: I find Mr. Norem 's letterto be a small but telling pièce of évidence of thesocial climate underlying the deficiencies in theCanadian légal System I addressed in my récentarticle. Beyond that, it seems scarcely ivorthy ofcomment except to affirm, for the record, thatneitherTheBodyFoliticnorlfavors molestationof small children oranybodyelse. For that matter,I don't recall any discussion of small children inThe Body Politic, except occasionally withréférence to custody cases involving gay or lesbianparents. There was certainly none in the article towhich Mr. Norem refers.PEP PROGRAM LAUDEDBY FORMER TE ACHEREditor:The article "Good Neighbors" in yourSPRING/84 issue caught my attention andlifted my spirits. As a teacher at Hyde ParkHigh (now Hyde Park Career Academy) from1965 to 1969 I was glad to know many brightstudents but of ten felt despair in contemplat-ing their prospects for the future. Summerworkshops at the University of Chicagohelped me greatly in teaching English in theinner city and tuition réductions for teachersmade it easier for me to earn a master's. TheUniversity had and I hope still has a welcom-ing attitude towards public school teacherswho wanted to further their éducation.Even more important, though, is the factthat many of my students would now hâve aplace on campus and could take advantage ofthe tremendous resources of the Universitythrough the Pilot Enrichment Program.Congratulations !Susan Schroeder Larson, AM'68Spruce Pine, NCOSPMADEDREAMS COME TRUEEditor:I was sitting in my office, hère in Cincinnati,when I received a package from a colleague ofmine. Inside was a copy of your SPRING/84issue and a note directing me to your article onthe Universit/s Office of Spécial Programs. Thecolleague (another transplant from Chicago)had remembered the too many times I had re- minisced about "The Program" and about LarryHawkins, my mentor/tormentor, who openedup the world to a girl who didn't know therewas one beyond the South Side. I was amongthe earliest batch of students in the OSR fromCarver High School, and none of us really knewwhat to expect. The first hour we walkedaround the University scared to death to be insuch an awesome place, but it didn't take longfor us to find out why we were there. For thefirst time in my lif e, I discovered what tough académies were ail about, and the work was madeeven more challenging by the motivating présence of Mr. Hawkins. His energy, intellect, andcommitment to the students made The Programa living thing, an intégral part of our lives.

Entriesare judged in several catégories, includinggênerai excellence, improvement, writing,and design. CASE recognizes excellencewith a grand award and acknowledges outstanding performance at three other levels :exceptional achievement, citation, andspécial merit.This year the Robert Sibley Award forbest magazine of the year went to MIT's Technology Review. Others among the top tenmagazines were periodicals from BostonUniversity, Brown, Columbia, Emory, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Notre Dame, Stanford and the University of Pennsylvania.University of Chicago Magazine won acitation. In addition, the article on investi-gative reporter Seymour Hersh, AB'58, byJames Graff, AB'81, then associate editor ofthe Magazine, won an exceptional achievement award in a three-way tie with Harvard and Columbia magazines for "bestarticle of the year."We would like to apologize to ail of youwho, at our request, hâve sent in items forClass News and hâve not yet seen them inprint. Your response to our request wasoverwhelming, and we ran out of space.

IN THIS ISSUEPreserving Egypt's Ancient RecordsBy James Graf fChicago 's Epigraphic Survey team strives to copycarvings and inscriptions of long-dead pharaohsbefore they are destroyed.Page 8Station BreakBy Jonathan MeyersohnThe first Benton Fellows, eight broadcast journalists,enjoy a stint in academia.Page 16Ho w to Lessen the Nation's Debt BurdenBy Peter G.

Gnabasik, AB'79, of Milwau-kee— but the primary impetus for theAlumni Schools Committee memberswho comb the country's high schools forprospective students for the Collègecornes straight from the heart.The ASC was first organized in1968, with committees in a dozen cities.An experiment at first, the committeesproved so successful in adding a person-al aspect to the Collège 's recruiting efforts that groups were set up in about 20other cities between 1970 and 1972. In1978, af ter Hanna Gray became président of the University, the ASC wasexpanded to its current level: 1,400 vol-unteers in 52 communities in the US.Another 200 volunteers work indepen-dently and are scattered throughoutsmaller towns and cities in the US andin Europe and the Far East.The volunteers, says ASC directorJ. Robert Bail Jr., X'70, provide information that objective application forms andeven subjective recommendations can-not. Because the interviewers hâve hadthe University of Chicago expérience,they can give an applicant a direct, per-sonal view of the University. "They cantalk about the kind of éducation that isoffered hère," Bail says, and "they canspeak about it in a compelling kind ofway." (An additional benef it to the University is that ASC members, havingbecome more attuned in gênerai to edu-cational issues, "are much more likely tobe responsive to the institution" in waysother than collège recruitment, Bail says.)Students are "strongly encouraged"to hâve an interview with an ASC mem-ber, Bail says, explaining that the meeting can work only to the student's ad-vantage. "No one has ever been deniedadmission because of a bad interviewand a good interview has been the de-ciding factor (for admission) in a border-line case."Thèse interviews— of which thereare about 1,500 annually— take time andattest to the heartfelt commitment ASCvolunteers hâve to the University. Since Director of admissions and aid Dan Hallexplains to ASC the various criteria involvedin admissions décisions.the place they are recruiting for is theUniversity of Chicago, their reasons forserving as far-f lung représentatives alsohâve more than a little to do with the lifeof the mind. Still, the heart seems tocorne first."The reason I do it is because I lovethis university and would like to doanything I can to help it," says lawyerJeffrey S. Rasley, AB'75, of Indianapolis."The first time I visited hère I fell in lovewith the place because I sensed a tre-mendous challenge." That challenge,"the thrill of being in a group of peoplewho cared so much about ideas" issomething he said he will alwaystreasure. famés A. Teeri, (right), master of the BiologicalSciences Collegiate Division, explains hisresearch to ASC members.Gnabasik's comment about guilt asthe stimulus for his participation in theASC was made in jest, but is true in thesensé that he wants to give somethingto the University which he feels gave somuch to him. Gnabasik, a computersoftware consultant, says, "there was aspirit that I caught hère." He describesthat spirit as self-motivation and inde-pendence. When he interviews prospective students he says he looks for some-one who could also catch that spirit,"someone who can take an idea and runwith the bail for 40 yards when they getthe chance."High school biology teacher TheaKauffman, AB'62, of Sharon, MA, nearBoston, might qualify in the "guilt" cat-egory of alumni interviewers. "I felt Iowed something," she says. "They gaveme such a good deal when I was hère."But there's more to it than that. Some-times, Kauffman says, she wonderswhat the next génération is going to belike. "When I meet the kids applying tothe University of Chicago, I hâve hope,"she said.Unlikely though it may seem, thefirst step in recruiting a student may beto let him or her know that the University of Chicago exists. Daniel Saltz, AB'53,2 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/FaU 1984SB '54, of San Diego, says he encounterswhat he calls a "West Coast problem—making the University of Chicagoknown." NedaL. Michels, PhB'47,MBA'49, who stepped down last springas chairman of the New York City areaschools committee— the "flagship"committee according to ASC directorBail— says, "we really are not the bestknown school in the world."The way to get rid of that relativeanonymity is to get the word about Chicago out to as many secondary schoolstudents and their parents as possible."The biggest challenge is trying to spreadthe gospel of the University of Chicago,"according to William B. Parker, MBA78.The recruiters acknowledge that goodstudents are lost to the University for avariety of reasons. Duke University, forinstance, has a meteorological advantageover Chicago, offering the "pleasures ofspringtime and the pleasures of themind," according to James P BeckwithJr., JD'74, of Durham, NC.Among thèse reasons hâve been thef ears of some parents for the saf ety oftheir children in a neighborhood thathas known troublesome rimes. Many ofASC members vote on a Collège candidate dur-ing a mock admissions meeting. the ASC members feel that the "dangers"of Hyde Park hâve been exaggerated.Of ten students corne from urban areasand are "street smart" before they gethère, says Michels. Robert E Bloomberg,AM'70, says safety is a matter of com-mon sensé. "You don't do in Chicagowhat you don't do in Boston," a city thathas no problem in attracting droves ofstudents, he observed. There is a legiti-mate concern for safety, said Michels,but "it is being met and the more it'saired the quicker we'll face up to it.""Our real responsibility," saysMichels, "is to give as much informationabout the Collège and the Universityand, I'm not ashamed to say, sell it. Thisis a spécial place." Judy U. Siggins,AB'66, AM'68, FhD'76, of Washington,DC, agrées. "We give a picture of theUniversity as a place in its own right thatdoesn't hâve to apologize for not beingHarvard or Princeton."The ASC members feel that theirwork may be one of the best ways forChicago to compete for top students.Taking the time to talk to a teenager and'the teenager's parents about an institution as imposing as the University ofChicago can make ail the différence.Lisa M. Logan, AM'81, of Kansas City,MO, said she has "had kids from Kan sas City turn down Harvard and Princeton because the University of Chicagoshowed aninterest in them." Demon-strating that interest means that the interviewers either hâve to know or hâveto be willing to find out anything a stu-dent might ask about course offerings,extracurricular activities, counselingfacilities, public transportation, computer access, residential life, and any of themyriad questions a college-bound stu-dent is likely to ask. "Our prime goal isto get them of f the hot seat they feelthey're on," Michel says, and to let themask the questions for a change.That opportunity has proved to bean important one. After dealing withtesting services and application forms,"I think they're usually glad to see a reallive alum," said Gladys R. Benedek,PhB'45, SB'47, of Pittsburgh. Theplea-sure is often reciprocated. Kauffmanrecalls interviewing one Stoughton,MA, high school senior who enteredher house as an applicant and lef t it asa friend. "She came over to the houseand we never even noticed what time itwas." That camaraderie may be just asimportant in attracting students as theglossiest brochure or thickest coursecatalogue.—Marianne EismannH3FOUR WINQUANTRELLAWARDSFour more members of the facultyhâve joined that honorable company ofscholars— récipients of the QuantrellAward for Excellence in UndergraduateTeaching.Jean Comaroff, associate professorin anthropology, sociology, and socialsciences in the Collège; David Draper,research associate (assistant professor)in statistics; Robert Ferguson, associateprofessor in English and the Collège;and Dennis Hutchinson, associate professor in the Law School and the NewCollegiate Division, received the award,established in 1938 by the late ErnestQuantrell, X'05, a former trustée of theUniversity, in honor of his parents.Undergraduates recommend facultyfor the award. Nominations are made bya committee appointed by the dean ofthe Collège. The winners are designatedby the président of the University onthe recommendation of the provost andthe dean.Some remarks on teaching by thisyear's récipients:Ferguson: "The challenge is to clar-ify without oversimplifying and withoutlosing the essential vitality of the sub-ject. . . I know what my own ideas are,but an idea isn't an idea unless it's get-ting across. And I don't know whetherit's getting across unless I hear it. One ofthe vital things about good teaching isbeing a careful and willing listener."Comaroff: "Collège students are notcommitted to a discipline and its meth-odology, which a professor takes almostas a sine qua non. One has to stand upand make it meaningful to them. TheyTlsay, A symbolic analysis of African religion makes sensé to you, but I don'tknow if I accept it.' The basic tenets ofyour f ield are constantly challenged."Draper: "I've noticed some thingsin common among the times when Ithink I'm being a good teacher. I'm usu-ally not taking myself too seriously, forone thing. There 's no reason to be for-mal or stuffy. . . My basic style is reallythe old Socratic business of questionand answer. I like to get the students totell me what to do next."Hutchinson: "The real part of learn-ing is not so much what happens in theclassroom, but rather what the studentsdo with the material or with the ideas outside. Often when they pull it togetheror develop their own insights, it's notwithin a 50-minute or 80-minute session,so I try to be available to the extent thatI can."HUMANITIESOPENH0USE0N0CT0BER13Anglo-Saxon England, Heian Japan,16th-century China, 19th-century Rus-sia, and 20th-century America will bejust a few of the times and places guestsmay visit on October 13 at the f if th an-nual open house to be held by the Division of the Humanities.

The firstphase, scheduled to be completed priorto the beginning of f ail quarter, will costapproximately $1.1 million and will involve tuck-pointing; repaving of outdoorroof terraces; repairing of Windows, thetile roof, and downspouts and gutters;construction of a wheelchair entryramp; and remodelling of several exitsto conf orm with f ire régulations. Theother two phases, which will begin oncefunds hâve been raised, will include theconstruction of a 500-seat cinéma inwhat is now the f irst-f loor gym, repairsto the pool, installation of an elevator,and electrical and plumbing work inphase two; and the construction in thebasement of a bowling alley, a billiardsroom, a craf ts room, a télévision room,and an upgrading of the Pub in phasethree.The aim of the project, according tothe master plan, is to make Ida NoyésHall, originally dedicated "to the lifeof the women of the University. . .moreavailable and accessible to the entireUniversity community." Physical éducation départaient offices in the building hâve been moved to Bartlett Gym-nasium in order to provide more spacefor student activities and activities staffoffices.CREATEENDOWMENTFUND FOR LAW SCHOOLThe Chicago law f irm of Sonnen-schein Carlin Nath & Rosenthal hascreated an endowment fund for the lawschool in honor of three of its partners, Léo J. Carlin, PhB'19, JD'19; BernardNath, PhB'19, JD'21; and Samuel R.Rosenthal, a long-time supporter of theUniversit/s library System.Law School Dean Gerhard Casperaccepted the gif t at a June 15 ceremony atthe Art Institute of Chicago. Speaking atthe ceremony, former chief justice of theIllinois Suprême Court Walter VSchaefer, PhB'26, JD'28, said Carlin,Nath, and Rosenthal hâve alwaysbrought dignity, honor, and integrity totheir profession since they began practic-ing law in the days when there was "noword processing, no Xerox machine, noLexis (a computer database providinglégal information and références), and noparalegal help. Thèse men hâve honoredthe légal profession and the profession isproud to honor them."Carlin ran track at the University. Heis a member of the Law School AlumniAssociation, sits on the Visiting Committee of the Divinity School, and is a formermember of the Citizens Board. He hasserved in various capacities in many civicand service organizations.Nath has a long record of politicaland civil rights activism. At the âge of 69,he went to Washington to protest US in-volvement in Vietnam. He has heldmany posts with the Anti-DefamationLeague of B'nai B'rith and is président ofthe Jewish Welfare Fund of Chicago. As astudent, he was captain of the Universités tennis team.Rosenthal is a patron of libraries,including the Newberry Library in Chicago, and those at the University of Chicago, Harvard University, Brandeis University, Grinnell Collège, and DartmouthUniversity. He is a life trustée of MichaelReese Hospital and Médical Center inChicago.PROINSULINMAYAIDDIABETES TREATMENTMédical center researchers say pro-insulin, the chemical precursor involvedin the steps leading to the production ofinsulin, might complément traditionalinsulin therapy in treating certain dia-betic patients.University doctors are studying theef fectiveness of a combination of insulinand proinsulin in treating patients withType 1 diabètes, which generally devel-ops in childhood or adolescence and is marked by an insulin def iciency.Diabètes af fects more than 10 millionAmericans.Proinsulin was discovered in 1967by Donald Steiner, MD'56, SM'56, A.N.Pritzker Distinguished Service Professorof biochemistry af the médical center.University scientists hâve been examin-ing proinsulin 's properties in détail for anumber of years and began studying itspossible clinical benef it to diabetics in1982. This new study is being conductedin coopération with the Eli Lilly pharma-ceuticalfirm.Proinsulin has several propertiesthat dif fer from those of insulin, andsome may be useful in treating Type 1 orjuvenile-onset diabètes, says Dr. RobertCohen, a research associate in the départaient of medicine who heads thestudy with Dr. Arthur Rubenstein,Lowell T. Coggeshall Professor andchairman of the départaient of medicine. "There is some évidence that proinsulin might act more preferentially onthe liver in controlling blood sugar lev-els," Cohen said. "Under certain cir-cumstances, a diabetic's blood sugarlevel increases not because of what he orshe eats, but because the liver is produc-ing too much glucose. If proinsulin isbetter than insulin at controlling thisprocess, it could be of benef it to certaindiabetics who hâve this problem."CAMPUS CREDITUNION EXPANDSThe University Student FédéralCrédit Union, which opened last winterwith 11 members— its own board ofdirectors— now has an enrollment of1,600 and is the fastest growing créditunion in the country, according toHerbert Silverman, director of publicrelations and marketing.Silverman, a fourth-year économiesmajor in the Collège, said the USFCU'sstatus was reported over the summer bythe National Crédit Union Administration, which also said the Chicago groupis the largest of the country's seven student fédéral crédit unions.The UFSCU was featured on thePBS Nightly Business Report in June aspart of a program commemorating the50th anniversary of the Fédéral CréditUnion Act.Kenn Bloom, a third-year student inthe Collège who was the UFSCU's firstorganizer is no longer on the board butis organizing the first conférence of student crédit unions, to be held in Chicagoin October, Silverman said.Martin Elling is président of theUFSCU. Hannah Grausz is vice-président. Both are third-year students.The crédit union, which has twopaid employées during the summer andone during the regular académie year, isotherwise run completely by volunteers,Silverman said. In the nine monthssince the UFSCU opened its office in thebasement of Reynolds Club, it has ac-quired $1 million in deposits and a cer-tif icate of deposit from the Bank of Lin-colnshire in Lincolnshire, IL, an earlyand strong supporter of the group.In addition to its original share draf t(checking), savings, check cashing, andtravelers' check services, the UFSCU isnow offering nine types of certif icates ofdeposit to alumni and students. Deposits can be made for either $1,000, $5,000,or $10,000 with terms of 60, 180, or 360days. Silverman said he hopes alumniwill use this service. "It's a way of help-ing students at the university whilehelping themselves," he said.

In Hyde Park, everyone goes toJimmy's.The officiai name of the sprawlingbar on 55th Street is Woodlawn Tap, butno one ever calls it that. Just as Rick'sCafé Américain was known only asRick's, call Jimmy's anything butJimmy's and the response will be a blankstare.Jimmy is Jimmy Wilson, who firststood behind a Hyde Park bar in 1940 atthe old University Tavern at Universityand 55th. That 's where "I first decided Iliked students and they liked me," hesays. Even then, the bar's officiai namewas discarded and regulars referred tothe place as Jimmy's. Wilson bought theWoodlawn Tap in 1948 when it was aone-room business. Like others beforehim, he went west, pushing throughwalls until he ended up with the rabbitwarren of rooms which serves as a second home for innumerable students,faculty, and Hyde Parkers.It was decided last spring thatWilson should be given some sort ofrécognition for his invaluable and long-standing service to the university com-munity. Frank Kinahan, associate professor of English, in the Collège and onthe Committee on General Studies inthe Humanities, came upwith the ideaof the Cointreau Award, a counterpartof the University's Quantrell Awardwhich recognizes excellence in under-graduate teaching. Kinahan, a Quantrellwinner in 1976, wrote the citation for theAlumni Association, which made theaward during Alumni Night at Jimmy'sduring reunion weekend in June.The citation reads: "The Universitygave us the Life of the Mind, But theman we honor tonight gave us the Lifeof the Spirits. The University of ChicagoAlumni Association therefore takespride in presenting Jimmy Wilson withits First Annual Cointreau Award forExcellence in Teaching. The award notonly recognizes Dr. Wilson's uniquepersonal talents but his astonishing patience in dealing with over f orty years'worth of student drinkers. Others hâveeducated; Jimmy has stimulated. There are people hère who will swear theylearned more at the Woodlawn Tap thanthey did in the Common Core. Forthat, as for much else, he will never beforgotten."The "Dr." before Wilson's name isthe resuit of yet another award, this onefrom University président Hanna Graywho, two years ago, gave Wilson anhonorary post-doctorate degree on theoccasion of his 70th birthday. The patience mentioned in the citation is leg-endary. Mike Nichols, X'53, the directorand producer, bounced a $5 check atJimmy's when he was a student in theCollège, Wilson says. Actor EdwardAsner, X'48, during his last trip toJimmy's told Wilson he'd tell Nichols tomake good on the check. So far, nothingfrom Nichols. "Tell Asner I'm still wait-ing for my $5," Wilson says with a smile.You get the feeling that he'd really muchrather keep the check.KUDOSMarc O.

The quiet gardens, grace-ful arches, and isolated courtyards lend itan air of permanence and belonging thatthe hôtels will never attain amidst thetown's clamor. But it is the function ofChicago House more than its appearancethat sets it off from its surroundings. Likethe scribes of the Middle Ages, this placeand its inhabitants are devoted to passingon an older knowledge that would betrampled and lost without their efforts.With quiet ardor, the eight Ameri-cans and two Englishwomen of the survey staff work as their predecessors hâvefor 60 years to préserve the threatened record of Thebes. Ail around them standthe monumental remains of this important religious center of late pharaonicEgypt, in sheer surface area the greatestconcentration of inscriptions and reliefsanywhere in the ancient world. A shortwalk to the north leads to the giganticTemple of Karnak, and Luxor Templelooms over the central part of the town ashort distance to the south. Across theriver, the temple complexes of MedinetHabu and Deir el-Bahri mark the linewhere the verdant Nile valley abruptlyends at the désert. Along the barren hillsare the sacred mortuary areas, wheregénérations of pharaohs, royal wives,and high priests were entombed in splen-dor. Some of the best preserved pharaonic monuments in ail of Egypt are atLuxor; the most spectacular are the Temple of Karnak and Valley of the Kings.Luxor is one of the most visited touristcenters in Egypt, but it is also, accordingto Lanny Bell, AB'63, associate professorof Egyptology at the Oriental Instituteand director of Chicago House since 1977,"one of the least known simply becausethere is too much there."For more than 2,000 years, from circa2050 B.C. to 30 B.C., Luxor was a majorcenter of pharaonic civilization. Duringthe New Kingdom (circa 1570 B . C. to circa1070 B.C.) it was especially important asthe cuit center of the impérial god, Amen-Re. Each pharaoh contributed from histreasury to the god's temple, many in thanks for military victories. Nearly everypharaoh of the New Kingdom addedsomething to Karnak Temple, contribut-ing not only gold and silver, but also land,grain, cattle, and people. In addition, ailthe New Kingdom pharaohs and many oftheir highest officiais were buried atLuxor. As part of the support establishments for thèse complexes, settlementsof priests, custodians, butchers, andcraftsmen grew up around the temples,over a 2,000-year period.The grandeur of ancient Thebes wasf ollowed by centuries of décline . Towardsthe end of the 20th dynasty, circa 1080B.C., the High Priests of Amen-Re atLuxor quarreled with the pharaoh resid-ing far away in the north, and the countrybecame divided. The priests also foughtwith the provincial governor of Nubia,the African Empire, and the latter drewaway and established a separate kingdom to the south. The political power ofLuxor waned, and the city gradually re-verted to the provincial backwater it hadbeen before the reunification of the country at the beginning of the New Kingdom .Only the great temples were maintained.The monuments of Luxor's past contin-ued to draw visitors in later antiquity, asthey still do today. Then the culturechanged; Christianity arrived, followedby Islam. Luxor ceased to be a great religious center, although a certain continui-ty is observable in regard to the ancientholy places: over the years a Byzantinechurch was built in the court of Rameses IIat Luxor Temple, and on top of that, even-tually, a mosque. The old temples nolonger had any religious signif icance forthe people living in the villages which en-croached upon them. Many générationsinhabited the mud brick houses built upagainst the temple 's strong stone walls;as thèse houses collapsed they were re-placed by others, built on top of the ruinsof the old ones. Sometimes thèse squatters would break pièces of stone from thetemple walls and cart them away to use inbuilding their own homes. Over a periodof 2,000 years the mounds of débris building up gradually covered the lower half ofthe temples. Such pilferage and re-useover two millennia account for the buriedand wrecked condition of the monuments when large numbers of Europe-ans began coming to Egypt in the 19thcentury. In 1857, the Egyptian AntiquitiesDepartment was founded; soon, effortswere being made to clear the great stonemonuments of Upper Egypt. The Antiquities Department was curious to seewhat was buried there, and also wanted to make the ruins accessible to tourists.They bought the houses which had beenbuilt in the area, and persuaded the people to move the villages back away fromthe temples. In 1885, they began to clearthe débris away from Luxor Temple. Thejob wasn't always easy. The British consulhad built a house right in the midst of thetemple, and refused to budge. After hedied in 1887, the government got possession of the house and tore it down in 1889.The earliest clearing of the temple lasteduntil 1892; still others, conducted by theEgyptian Antiquities Department in thelate 1940s and 1950s, gradually revealedthe temple as it can be seen today. By thelate 1950s, the department had clearedthe mound at Luxor back to the distanceof nearly one city block on every side."Napoleon's troops excavated one ofthe columns in the Luxor Colonnade,when they were hère, out of scientificcuriosity," said Bell. "They also did draw-ings; but thèse were somewhat impres-sionistic. The early drawings don't always show the correct number ofcolumns." The Epigraphic Survey stafffunctions a bit like a détective agency; it isconstantly seeking sources of old viewstaken by some of the earliest photogra-phers. It also seeks out old drawings, orcommentaries by travelers. There is a scientific reason for their interest. Old photos sometimes reveal parts of inscriptionsor décorations which hâve since dete-riorated. "When we study photos of thewalls when they were first excavated, wefind that many reliefs soon fell off thewalls. We can document the détériorationby comparing the first photos of the Colonnade walls, published in 1894, withother séries of photos taken down to theprésent," said Bell. Another source forthe history of Luxor Temple prior to its excavation has been the names of people in-scribed on the columns during the lastcentury. Many tourists scratched theirnames on a column, while standing nextto its base. Today thèse signatures are upto 35 feet in the air, since in reality thelower halves of the columns were buriedin dirt and débris. Many people includeda date when they wrote their names, andsometimes thèse early visitors can beidentified.Experts know that many other treas-ures still lie buried in the area, but the Epigraphic Survey does no digging. Indeed,its work on long-revealed monumentsprésents daily évidence of excavation'sinhérent paradox.

Wind,water, illicit artifact dealers, and touristsail contribute to the rapid érosion of irre-placeable surfaces."The suprême obligation of the présent génération of orientalists," decreedOriental Institute founder James HenryBreasted in the 1920s, "is to make a com-prehensive effort to save for posterity theenormous body of ancient records stillsurviving in Egypt." While down withmalaria at Luxor in 1923, Breastedworked out an ambitious plan to préservewhat remained of Thebes through epi-graphy, documenting the monumentsthrough the production of précise f acsim-iles of the carved reliefs, painted scènes,and inscriptions. The Epigraphic Sur-veys first project, the 7,000 square metersof inscribed surface on Râmesses III'smortuary temple at Medinet Habu, began the following winter. The work end-ed décades later with the publication, bythe University of Chicago Press, of eighthighly-acclaimed volumes of drawings,translations, and commentary. Sincethen, the Epigraphic Survey has pre-served the record of four other majormonuments, including Râmesses II'stemple at Beit el-Wali, now removed fromits original site, which is submerged be-neath Lake Nasser behind the high damat Aswan.The documentary technique Breastedpioneered in the 1920s has since becomeknown simply as the Chicago Housemethod, and it still sets the disciplinedand meticulous course of the EpigraphicSurve/s work. Renowned among Egyp-tologists for its unsurpassed accuracy— and good-naturedly assailed for howlong it takes— the Chicago House methodrests on the time-tested principle ofchecks and balances. "We know that it'simpossible for any one person workingalone to get everything that can be gottenout of any monument with 100 percent accuracy," says Bell. "We are convinced thatto attain the kind of accuracy, permanence, and f inality that we strive for, thework has to be done by a number of people with a variety of specializations mull-ing over every problem in light of theirown personal expérience and training."The process begins with photogra-pher Susan Lezon, who came to ChicagoHouse two years ago af ter earning a mas-ter's degree in photography at the University of Massachussetts at Amherst,and working on another of the OrientalInstitute's archeological projects in Car-thage. She sets up her caméra and tripoddirectly at the monument and takes a séries of large-format pictures of the inscribed surfaces, making certain that thelighting, camera-angle, and camera-dis-tance remain constant. When she standsunder the black shroud of her ancient instrument, surrounded by Egyptian assistants in their f lowing gallabiyyas andhead wrappings, the only visual références to the late 20th-century are a fewinches of her blue jeans and her tennisshoes. "Almost ail of the equipment isold, but it was built sturdily 60 years ago,"she says. (The Epigraphic Survey can ' t af-ford to purchase modem photographieequipment; the caméras used in theirwork are very expensive.) Modem con-veniences at her laboratory on the grounds behind Chicago House go nofurther than running water. Lezon andher assistant, Youssef Mohammed AbuSeif, must mix the chemicals and carry thedistilled water they need for developingthe spécial matte prints required for therest of the process.Such photographs alone providevaluable documentation on the monuments, and many other epigraphic projects publish them as their final product.But because photographs présent thewall in two dimensions with light fromone angle, they are of ten unable to recordthe crucial distinction between a carvedline and a scratch or later détérioration.Any number of Egyptological red her-rings got started by scholars poring overprints in offices thousands of miles fromEgypt.For this reason, the Epigraphic Survey uses photographs only as the basisfor ink-line drawings that convey the essence of the ancient carvings more clearlythan the damaged walls themselves do.The three full-time staff artists spenddays at the wall, when necessary on highwooden ladders or scaffolding, com-paring the prints inch by inch with the inscribed surface and adding the worndétails that are not visible in the photographs. The pencil lines are then inked inat the Chicago House studios accordingto a précise set of conventions, and twoblueprints of the enhanced photographare made. One of thèse blueprints is eutup into small sections, each of which isglued to a larger pièce of paper to formcollation sheets.Armed with thèse sheets two epi-n, - ¦&$> gfaÉw^JBI^fc^--wa» Êi î£* ^'^^-,^"^!f^- ""g 1.«#— ;-^;i^*,«.->-^-î>^_: ^ '. — ^?

On the right are the mortuarychapels of the princesses ofthe 26th Dynasty, Saite period.graphers trained in Egyptology return in-dependently to the original source, thewall itself. Both of them re-check the détails section by section, judiciously apply-ing their knowledge of what to expect inparticular contexts. At this stage, for instance, they might find traces of earliercarvings that had been reçut by a laterpharaoh and missed or misinterpreted bythe artist. Once they hâve agreed on ailcriticisms and suggested improvements,the epigraphers give the collation sheetsback to the artist, who returns to the wallto make corrections. When photographier, artist, and epigraphers are satisf iedthat ail salient features of the wall are re-corded accurately, the photo is bleachedout to leave an ink drawing. But the process is still not complète: the directormakes a final check before giving it his ap-proval. The team also looks over earlierphotographs of the wall, preserved inChicago House's archive of more than18,000 prints, and adds dashed lines to in-dicate carvings that hâve been docu-mented in previous décades but hâvesince worn away from the wall itself.Martha Bell, who is an archeologist, ad-ministers the 15,000-volume ChicagoHouse library, one of the finest Egypto-logical collections any where and a price-less resource to ha ve so close to the monuments themselves.In the cautious tones of a true man ofscience, Breasted wrote: "When the ex-haustively corrected India ink drawinghas been transformed by photographiemeans into a printer's plate and an éditionof 500 impressions has been printed off, the inscription has thus been multiplied500 times and may therefore be said to bereasonably safe."The constant give and take of the Chicago House method makes it crucial thatprofessional différences do not becomepersonal ones. Bell, whose easy-goingmanner and hearty Midwestern laughbelie a strong sensé of discipline, hasmanaged in the last few years to create ateam whose members respect one anoth-er's privacy, get along without complications, and, most important, do superbwork. "Everyone on the staff is an inde-pendent, thinking professional and that 'swhat we want — there are no yes-per-sons," he says.Egyptology is not the kind of fieldone enters on a whim, and like most of hiscolleagues, Bell has been fascinated withancient Egypt since childhood. His for-mal training began at the University,where he received an A.B. in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations in 1963under the late director of the Oriental Institute, John A. Wilson. Hecontinuedhisstudies at the University of Pennsylvaniawith the aid of a Woodro w Wilson Fellow-ship. "When I got to Pennsylvania, therewas not only no Egyptologist— the professor had just retired— but no students,either," says Bell. "I was alone there for ayear and got a chance to do a lot of back-ground reading." The solitude was ablessing in disguise, for when the department took form again, Bell was in a position to supplément his doctoral workwith the kind of teaching and field workassignments that are rare in larger departments.The Oriental Institute first asked Bellto be field director of Chicago House in1973, but he declined because his studieswere not yet completed. The décisionturned out to be a good one. "Knowingwhat I know now," he says, "I would nev-er hâve been able to finish my doctorateout hère." What he knows now is thatthere is woefully little time for indepen-dent research for the director of ChicagoHouse. Aside from his professional re-sponsibility for the Survey's work itself,Bell spends the bulk of his day doing ailthe things necessary to keep ChicagoHouse running smoothly: arrangingtravel plans, keeping track of money,buying food and equipment, hiringEgyptian workers, and dealing with theastoundingly complex Egyptian bureau-cracy. He can sometimes be spotted slip-ping into the library in the late evening fora few hours alone with his books.The work doesn't end when the Survey team leaves Chicago House duringthe scorching Egyptian summer, whentempératures on the Nile 's west banksometimes reach 140 degrees Fahrenheit.Bell spent last summer discussing thework of the Epigraphic Survey withmany individuals in Chicago in an at-tempt to head off a f inancial crisis at Chicago House by increasing private support. With a professional staff of 10, anEgyptian support staff of 22, an old houseto keep up, travel expenses, library booksand materials to purchase, the 12-monthbudget of the Epigraphic Survey is astoundingly modest at $240,000. For moreUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/Fall 1984than 20 years, some 40 percent of thismoney has corne from the US govern-ment's counterpart funds program, inwhich excess Egyptian pounds earnedprimarily in grain sales in the 1950s wereparcelled out through the SmithsonianInstitution to American scientif ic projectsin Egypt. This money has covered ail ofthe Epigraphic Survey's operating ex-penses in Egypt, plus travel expenses,while the Oriental Institute provides theremainder to pay for professional salaries, office f acilities in Chicago during thesummer, library books, expédition supplies and publication costs.Three years ago, the US govemmentannounced that the counterpart fundsprogram would end in 1985. The squeezestems from the demand of the US govemment itself in Egypt. The American Em-bassy in Cairo, a massive white stuccocomplex in the exclusive Garden Cityneighborhood, has become the US gov-ernment's most important monitoringstation for the troubled Middle East. According to an officiai there, it is now thelargest embassy complex of any nationanywhere in the world. "There simply isno more excess money," says Bell. "Without the Smithsonian $85,000, PU hâve toget rid of some of the professional staffmembers. I can't f ire any of my Egyptianstaff— by law— after they've worked fortwo months. People are worried abouthow long it takes us to complète our projects now, but if our budget goes downthis much, it will take us forever to getanywhere— we just won't hâve the staff-ing for it."The work starts early at ChicagoHouse. The breakfast table is cleared by7:30 a. m., and the staff loads up the twoLand Rovers for the daily trips to themonuments. After a short drive throughLuxor, Susan Lezon, Ray Johnson, andBill Murnane, AM'68, PhD'73, associateprofessor at the Oriental Institute and assistant director of the Epigraphic Survey,arrive at Luxor Temple, a massive structure stretching back in stages from itsproud portai near the life-giving river.French archeologists working for theEgyptian Antiquities Department re-moved up to 35 feet of accumulated earthand débris from the temple between 1885and 1892, but it still remains the leastpublished (and, consequently, one of theleast researched) major monuments ofancient Thebes. The Epigraphic Survey's Artist Paul Hoffman compares a preliminarydrawing with the original on the wall in theColonnade of Tutankhamon.efforts hère, now winding down after tenseasons, hâve produced a mass of new information on the history and function ofthe temple. "Since we're the people wholive with the monuments for the greatesttime and think about ail their problems,"says Bell, "we're the ones who can givethe scholarly world a fresh insight intowhat thèse things are ail about."Before settling down to work in thealready hot morning sun, chief artist RayJohnson, a slim and fastidious doctoralstudent in Egyptology who has been withthe Survey since 1979, offers a brief ac-count of the monument's checkered past .The présent temple was begun in the late18th dynasty during the reign ofAmenhotep III (1386-1349 B.C.). Like anearlier monument built on the same siteby Queen Hatshepsut (1503-1483 B.C.)the temple was to be a place of worship ofboth the composite god Amen-Re and ofthe mortal pharaoh 's ka or, roughly, hisdivine aspect as a living, earthly ruler.(The double signif icance of this templewas a discovery recently made by Bell andhis assistants on the Epigraphic Survey).Before the work was completed, how-ever, Amenhotep died and was succeed-ed by his son, Akhenaton, who f ounded anew religion centered on the formerlyminor sun god, Aton. The "heretic pharaoh" (commonly so-called because of hisunorthodox religious System) halted fur-ther work on Luxor Temple, ordered hisminions to hack out ail références to thediscarded gods (even when thèse références occurred as part of his father's name), and set up an entirely new Egyptian capital with a radically différent aes-thetic to the north at Tell el-Amarna.Akhenaton and his wife, Nefertiti,ruled for about 16 years, severely rockingthe traditional religious foundation ofEgyptian society. The arduous task of re-storing the orthodoxy fell to his famoussuccessor, Tutankhamon, who left someof the f inest surviving évidence of that effort on the walls of the great ColonnadeHall at Luxor. Tutankhamon was anxiousto demonstrate that his reign stood f irmlyin the legacy of Amenhotep III. (Evidencef ound by the Epigraphic Survey stronglysuggests Amenhotep III was Tutankhamon 's father. "We'U be publishing thèsefindings," said Bell.) He had his work-men decorate the Colonnade Hall withAmenhotep 's cartouche, or hieroglyphicsignature, as well as his own, and he ordered them to work rapidly to right the injustice done to his gods by Akhenaton."Under Tutankhamon, the chisel cutswere sharp and quick and the reliefs wererelatively shallow, which indicates theywere in a hurry," says Johnson. "Thequality of the work isn't in the reliefsthemselves as much as in the astoundingenergy of the lines, and the modem artistcan actually capture some of that originalenergy by manipulating his own line."Johnson is the first artist with extensivetraining in Egyptology to work for theSurvey, and he sees the art of the post-Amarna period as "some of the mostbeautiful work we hâve from ancientEgypt, with a fine balance between natu-ralistic and stylized éléments.""Our purpose is not to record thèsethings because they are there, but because we want to understand them," saysBill Murnane, as he stands besideTutankhamon's reliefs on the Colonnadewalls. He has a spécial gif t for explainingthe wonders of Egyptology to the lay-man, perhaps because his own interest inthe field did not take form until his early20s, when he was working on his master'sdegree in ancient history. A small manwith a lively step and a matter-of-factmanner, Murnane is the vétéran memberof the current Chicago House staff. Heexplains that Tufs reliefs depict the Festival of Opet (the ancient Egyptian namefor Luxor), an annual event asserting thepharaoh's divinity that was neglectedduring Akhenaton 's rule . The walls showbarges carrying statues of Amen-Re, hiswife, Mut, and the pharaoh up the Nilefrom the gods' home in Karnak to Luxor,where a complex ritual was performed toreenact the pharaoh's divine birth and re-13^^^ssss^^s^^new his ka. When the Survey publishesits drawings of the Colonnade, the staffsaccompanying commentary will offerEgyptologists a new understanding notonly of this ritual, but also of the cuit ofthe divine king and the very nature ofkingship in this period.Though Tutankhamon was success-ful in reinstituting the religious ortho-doxy, his monuments were no saferfrom his successors' ambitions thanAmenhotep Iïï's were. Eleven différentpharaohs left their names in the Colonnade Hall within 200 years, of ten carvedright over those of their predecessors. Farfrom representing an unalterable recordof the past, thèse walls and columnsserved as a partially erasable slate uponwhich each ruler rewrote history as hesaw fit. Much of the most important information exists only as faint traces longunnoticed by earlier Egyptologists andfirst brought to light by the EpigraphicSurvey's patient and exacting methods."When we compare our copies with pre-vious documentation of the monument,we find discrepancies in almost everycase," Murnane says with a touch of professional pride.The Survey's efforts at Luxor Templeare not limited to the walls that still stand . In the post-pharaonic period, the monument served as a convenient quarry forthe inhabitants of the temple, who eut itslarge blocks down into smaller chunksand used them to build houses. Duringthe 1980-81 season, Chicago House staffmembers methodically combed the areaaround the temple and found hundredsof such fragments. The Egyptian Antiquities Department had arranged thèse andthe thousands of other fragments collect-ed over the years into neat rows aroundthe temple. Ray Johnson has identifiedsome of thèse pièces as parts of the upperregisters of the Colonnade reliefs. Thewalls of his studio at Chicago House arecovered with the prints Susan Lezon hasmade of the fragments, pieced togetherlike a large puzzle with drawings f illingthe gaps. Johnson has reconstructed several hitherto unknown scènes, and withhis guidance, the Epigraphic Survey intends to mortar some fragments back intotheir original positions in the templewalls.Along with damage from humanhands, whether ancient or modem,Luxor Temple's raised reliefs hâve alsodeteriorated because of the constant re-forming of sait crystals in the stone, dueto changing atmospheric conditions.

He is cleaning a wall; she iscleaning the red granité naos (shrine).sandstone from which the temples werebuilt originally was f ormed in the sea, so ithas a certain amount of sait in it naturally.During the centuries when the templeswere half -buried by rich organic material,the salts from the mounds of earth anddébris were also sucked up by the stones.(Below) A section of chapel wall at Medinet Habu after the Jaeschkes hâve cleaned it. Thevulture at right is spreading its wings protectively over the royal cartouches.14 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/Fall 1984The problem has worsened since thecompletion of the Aswan High Dam,which has elevated the water table andthe average humidity of Upper Egyptgenerally. The constant movement of thesait crystals, as the content of the sait inthe stones shif ts to redress imbalances,weakens the inscribed surfaces and theycrumble away. Around the turn of thecentury, archeologists tried to leach outthe salts by diverting the high flood wa-ters of the Nile through the temple, butthe destruction has continued at an ap-palling pace since then. Comparing photos taken between 1892 and the mid-1930swith récent ones, Bell and his team hâveidentified more than 30 discrète majorareas where formerly intelligible traces ofdécoration on the temple are no longerthere.A ferry ride across the Nile and ashort drive through the green f ields of thewest bank bring staff members RichardJaeschke, Helena Jaeschke, and StevenShubert to the Survey's other current project, Queen Hatshepsut's small temple atMedinet Habu. This site has occupiedmost of the Jaeschkes's time since theycame to Chicago House three years ago asconservators. Before that, Richard servedas assistant to Oriental Institute conser-vator Barbara Hall, then received a grantunder the national Comprehensive Em-ployment and Training Act to studyat the University of London's Instituteof Archaeology. There he met and mar-ried Helena Farrell, a British citizen nowpursuing a Ph.D. in conservation at theLondon Institute of Archaeology. Theirparticular skills are sorely needed at thislong-neglected site, which served as adwelling place for centuries after thepharaonic culture faded. The people wholived hère were superstitious about thecarved images and they hacked outhands, faces, and animal figures to robthem of any potential power. One of thegreatest problems for the conservatorswas posed by the centuries of cookingf ires that completely blackened the paint-ed scènes within the temple . After testingvarious means of removing the soot without damaging the délicate paint below,the Jaeschkes began treating the wallswith a f ive to eight percent solution ofnitric acid, a choice determined by thecomposition of both the stone and thepaint. "We seek révélations by cleaning,not by digging," says Richard, as he rollsthe solution onto the wall with a tiny cot-ton swab, gradually revealing scènes stillvividly colorful after nearly 3,500 years.As sections are cleaned and conserved, epigrapher Steven Shubert, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Toronto, prépares hand copies of the inscriptions anddécorations. His work serves as the basisfor the documentation, translation, andcommentary the Survey will undertakehère in coming years.The staff members who spent themorning at Luxor Temple return to thecool, high-ceilinged comfort of ChicagoHouse for a common lunch of cheese,Egyptian bread, and fresh vegetablesgrown in the Chicago House garden.Their colleagues at Medinet Habu makedo with abag lunch and work until 3 p. m . ,when they take the ferry back to Luxor.The af ternoons of the Luxor crew are generally spent at Chicago House, wherethere is plenty of work to do, out of themerciless sun. Susan Lezon develops herphotographs and works on her project ofpreserving the extensive Chicago Housephoto archives, parts of which hâve beendamaged by decomposing nitrate négatives. "The nitrate négatives are dete-riorating, so we are copying them as fastas we can," explained Bell. "In addition,when the first safety film (modem film)was developed, those négatives werestored next to the nitrate négatives, andwe're in danger of losing them, too. Thenitrate négatives hâve affected some ofthem." Ray Johnson and the other artists,Barbara and Salvatore Garfi, retreat totheir studios to complète drawings. BillMurnane makes up dictionary cards forthe Survey's file, which lists ail the con-texts in which any given hieroglyphicword has been used in ail the monumentsstudied by the Survey. Other chores forthe staff include working over commen-taries, inspecting drawings, checking références, cataloging books, and balancingaccounts.At five o'clock, the activity windsdown and everyone meets on the en-closed sun porch for afternoon tea. Anever-changing procession of guests joinsthe staff for the social hour. Scholars fromail over the world corne hère to stay in thecomfortable guest rooms while pursuingshorter research projects, from the rôle ofnon-royal women in the 18th dynasty topossible connections between Egyptianand Cretan art. Tourists with connectionsto the University drop by for orientation,advice, and expert commentary on thesurrounding sites. Members of thePolish, French and other Egyptological missions also working in Luxor corne touse the library and to discuss their workwith their Chicago House colleagues.In the kitchen, Taya Hassan Birbash,the chief cook, who has worked at Chicago House much longer than any of thecurrent staff members, begins preparingthe evening meal. The hearty fare repre-sents a successful compromise betweenwestern palates and Egyptian markets,washed down with Egyptian wine. Thedinner conversation ranges from Egyptology to politics to méat priées in HydePark, a thème raised by a guest's thought-ful présent of a récent Hyde Park Herald.The occasional anecdotes about touristswho climb up ladders behind epigraphers or self-confidently concoct fancifulEgyptological interprétations are told in atone of resigned tolérance. The usualLuxor tourist expérience, which includesdining out, watching belly-dancing, andpartying on the pleasure steamersmoored on the Nile, has long since lostmost of whatever charm it once had forthèse more permanent résidents.The staff is more likely to adjoum tothe Gothic living room to watch the Eng-lish-language news on the state télévision station. The staff célébrâtes suchAmerican holidays as Halloween, Thanks-giving, and Christmas, and films are occa-sionally ordered from Cairo for exclusiveLuxor showings. But such events are spécial: the average evening sees the staff re-tiring to their private and well-appointedliving quarters on the second and thirdfloors to listen to music, read, and write.What makes a six-month stay at Chicago House valuable to thèse ten peopleis a genuine dedication to their work andthe legacy of ancient Egypt it préserves.The modest pay, the relative isolation, theof ten tedious work are only minor annoy-ances. More important is the opportunitythey hâve for an extended dialogue with afascinating people, who, as Bell puts it,"were incredibly like us in the way theythink, the things they were trying to do,and the means by which they expressedthemselves. Somehow, I find that verycomforting."James Graff, AB '81, former associate editor ofthe University of Chicago Magazine,is studying fora master's degree in social history at the University of Munich in West Ger-many.

S15By Jonathan MeyersohnThe first Benton Fellows,eight broadcast journalists, savor the delights oftime to read, think, challenge, and be challengedby a brief stint in academia.Barry Karl leadsBenton Fellowsin a discussion.i iNiiVFBÇn-v nu mirann mni 7ik»h 1984nm hange cornes slowly to the University^^of Chicago. It is borne in by committee, appearing first in some quiet cornerof the gray campus, creeping unan-nounced into the curriculum, the mythi-cal course book, or the calendar page ofthe Maroon. Faculty and students usual-ly are too busy or too preoccupied to notice change. And when it cornes in theform of a new rrend, it is summarily re-jected, scorned, like sushi at the C-Shopor sun lamps in the Field House. So,when eight broadcast journalists ap-peared on the quads last September, letloose to find their way among the stacksof Regenstein Library and the classroomsof Cobb Hall, few noticed something radical was happening.A small part of what students sometimes call the "real world" had arrived. Hère, after ail, were journalists, bottom-liners from the quick-and-dirty world oftélévision and radio news, entering theraref ied enclave of contemplation. Bring-ing broadcast journalists to the University of Chicago seemed like asking bridge-builders to spend six months studyingart, anatomy, and poetry. Relationshipsexisted, but they had to be distinguished.Both the University and the firstgroup of William Benton Fellows inBroadcast Joumalism were embarkingon an intellectual adventure, an odys-sey of mutual discovery. In the course ofthe program, members of both partieslearned as much about themselves asthey did about one another."The Benton Fellowship Program is agrand experiment."Barry Karl, who served as chairmanof the faculty advisory committee to theBenton Fellows, was addressing the fellows on the first day of the program. Overlunch at the Quadrangle Club, Karl,AM'51, the Norman and Edna FreehlingProfessor in the Department of Historyand the Collège, was telling us franklythat, despite years of planning, no onewas quite sure exactly how the programwould fare in its first year."You are like guinea pigs," said Karl."Everyone involved with the Benton Fellowship will be watching to see whathappens."We f inished our orange sherbet, feel-ing a bit strange. Usedto being observers, now we were being observed. Peoplewanted to know if this hybrid breed ofjournalist-academic would survive in anew environment.The idea of bringing broadcasters tothe University of Chicago began, yearsago, with William Benton. Benton wasvice-président of the University from1937 to 1945, then served as a trustéefrom 1946 until his death in 1973. He wasalso a US senator from Connecticut(1949-53), co-founder of Benton &Bowles advertising agency, and chairman and publisher of Encyclopaedia Britannica. In his belief that public relationstechniques could be used to market high-level ideas, Benton became interested inthe power of broadcasting . Foreseeing itsgrowth, Benton felt broadcasting couldimprove through self-examination. Healso believed that the University couldraise its visibility by making the publicaware of its qualifies.At the time of Benton 's death in 1973,there were no fellowships devoted solelyto broadcasting. Through the WilliamBenton Foundation, that would change.The foundation decided to sponsor a fellowship at the University, and in 1981charged the University with constructinga program. University Président HannaGray turned over that responsibility to aJonathan Meyersohn, AB'78, was editor of the Grey City Journal from 1976 to1977, and editor of the Maroon from 1977 to1978. After graduation, he workedfor CBSNews in New York, and later as a writerlpro-ducer for WABC-TV in New York. In late1981, he returned to CBS as an associateproducer for the CBS Morning News. Fol-lowing his stint as a Benton Fellow, he be-came a producer in the Chicago bureau ofCBS News. As a senior in the Collège, hewon a Howell Murray Award.14-member faculty committee. Theywere to devise a course of study thatwould enable broadcasters to benefitfrom some of the University's offerings,and, in turn, let the school gain from thejournalists' présence. At first, recallsKarl, who joined the faculty advisorycommittee in 1982, there was some skep-ticism in both camps."Members of the University wantedto know what we could gain by havingbroadcasters hère," said Karl. "At thesame time, télévision people we met withfor advice thought working journalistsmight not be interested or wouldn't taketime off to go to school."But, recalled Karl, rapid changes inbroadcasting led to a différent attitude."By 1983, there was a shift. WalterCronkite had retired. He and most of thebroadcast newsmen of his générationhad gotten their training in print journal-ism. With the new génération of peopleon the air that wasn't true anymore— andwe had to ask ourselves, Ts there, in fact,any appropriate training for broadcastjournalists?' People were asking a lot of I questions about the direction of broadcast news. Was there a market for intelligent reporting? The Benton Programreally grew out of that puzzlementabout the future of the profession,whether broadcasters were becomingtoo arrogant, too powerful, too insensi-tive. Quickly, journalists were begin-ning to accept the notion that intelligent self-reflection might not be a badidea, that the industry could stand someimprovement."In March, 1983, the University an-nounced it would accept applications forthe first William Benton Fellowships,which would bring eight working news-room broadcast journalists to the University for the folio wing f ail and winter quar-ters. Fellows would receive a stipendequal to their salary and assistance infinding housing. They would take twocourses each quarter, and attend a week-ly seminar led by a member of the facultycommittee, on an issue of interest to journalists. Fellows would be expected, butnot required, to complète non-creditcoursework. By June, 131 journalistsfrom as far away as France and Peru hadapplied."The real problem for us was in eval-uating the applications, especially thetapes people sent us," said Karl. "Most ofus hâve little expérience with videotapeor daily broadcasting, to say the least.Then there were the recommendations.Some were one-sentence endorsements.Not your average curriculum vitae."To help structure the program andevaluate candidates, a national advisoryboard had been established. NBC Newscorrespondent John Chancellor was thechairman; the board included 14 broadcast correspondents and executives.Among them was John Callaway, a broadcast journalist for 26 years, nine of themas director of news and current affairs atWTTW-Channel 11, Chicago 's public télévision station."At first," said Callaway, "I had greatfears about how broadcasters wouldadapt to the University. The two seemedlike oil and water. It's what-have-you-done-for-me-lately versus what-does-it-mean-historically-speaking ."In June, Callaway was named director of the Benton Fellowship Program.His knowledge of broadcasting and ofChicago helped solidify the program.From the start, Callaway made us feelthat we belonged, both in Chicago and atthe University."I began to see that there could be agood marriage between broadcasters andI the University. The two groups hâve more in common than it may appear atfirst . Both rely on curiosity and investigation to discover basic truths. And both arecomplète, unreconstructed generalists.Once we realized what we shared, bothsides relaxed," he said.The Fellows adapted to university lifesuprisinglyeasily. Of course, there were afew problems at first, such as f iguring outthe arcane rules of registration and finding out how never to trust the coursebook (but to sit in on as many classes aspossible the first week.) In short, theyhad to learn the hidden, tacit code withinthe University that ail things are possiblebut nothing is obvious. Within a couple ofweeks, Fellows could be seen foragingthrough the shelves of the SeminaryCoop Bookstore, or sipping tea in theSwift Coffee Shop alongside the peren-nial students I recognized as having beenaround campus from my undergraduatedays."The Fellowship gave me a wholespectrum of ideas to think about, to mullover, to read about," said Rebecca Bell,the only woman Fellow. Bell had cornefrom Mississippi by way of Paris, whereshe had been the NBC News bureau chieffor seven years. Stuart Chamberlain hadworked as overnight news editor for ABCRadio News in New York; George Bauerwas a public télévision anchor in Tucson,AZ; Jonathan "Smokey" Baer was a producer for National Public Radio in Chicago; Phillip Archer was a spécial segment reporter at KPRC-TV in Houston;Michael Taibbi was an investigative reporter for WNEV-TV in Boston; and JimKirchherr was a reporter for KTVI-TV theABC affiliate in St. Louis. Each came tocampus with plans for a spécifie course ofstudy (urban affairs, Latin America, law,political science); most realized theirgoals, with some surprises along the way."Things are more complicated thanthey seem."That message, again from Barry Karl,became the leitmotiv of our Fellowship.Early on, we were frightened by thedepth of uncertainty. At work, most of usrarely got beyond the basic level. Com-plexity gets in the way of news. Slowly,complexity became natural, reflection areflex. After years of deadlines, of boilingdown thoughts to 15-second sound bites,we were learning to breathe again. ByMarch, we revelled in complexity."Most of us, as journalists, had beentrained to look for connections," saidBaer. "We just had to get back to that, tostart looking more deeply and carefullyfor the figure in the carpet."For Bell, the Fellowship "reawak-18 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/FalI 1984ened my joy of reading. And the joy ofcomplicated ideas... it was just a reallygood feeling to be excited about ideas.""I had a chance to read things whichjournalists usually don't hâve time todo," said Bauer. For instance? "Books."The Fellows were drawn together bya shared sensé of purpose, the belief thatbroadcast joumalism was at a point of cri-sis. That became the f lame around whichwe hovered. Much of our conversation,public and private, centered on how toimprove our profession, how to dispelthe notion that we talk down to our audience, that we are arrogant, that we hidetoo often behind the shield of the FirstAmendment.In one of our first quarter Bentonseminars, Geoffrey Stone, JD'71, HarryKalven, Jr. Professor in the Law School,moderated a debate on the First Amendment. We were asked if we would changethe amendment, and if so, how wewould word it. Ultimately, we decided tolet it alone, but I think each of us wasforced to think about the First Amendment in a way we hadn't before. It was nolonger some arcane, intangible document for us to hide behind when ourworkiscriticized. It became a force, a protection the press needs, but cannot af f ordto abuse."For the first time in âges," said PhilArcher, "we were being forced to think,not just react."Karl got us to look at broadcasting as aprofession, in the Weberian sensé. We realized that we, indeed, were a bureaucra-Stuart Chamberlain (I)and Jonathan Baer*â cy. We had an internai language. Broadcast joumalism was reaching a pointwhere self-criticism and awareness werenecessary. The Benton Fellowship was itself part of a process.At 27, with f ive years of professionalexpérience, I was younger and less sea-soned than the other Fellows, whoseaverage âge was 34, with nine years of expérience. But I was the only one whoknew the pleasures of Jimmy's, or thepain of the bursar's office. I led the Fellows to the modular chairs in the northroom of Harper Library (perf ect for an af-ternoon nap as the sun streams throughthe west window), to Student Health,Court Théâtre, DOC Films (where director Joseph Losey was rescued from ob-scurity in fall quarter by résident auteur-ists), Ida Noyés, Hutch Commons, andthe hidden treasure of a dozen visitinglecturers each week.Of course, much had changed in thefive years since I left campus. Morry'sDeli had expanded and threatened tobury Hyde Park in pastrami and shred-ded lettuce. The Henry Crown FieldHouse had been renovated. In the FieldHouse, students wearing Spandex andheadphones could be seen joggingaround the rubber pizza-Iike track, whiledownstairs others were pumping iron.So much for Robert Maynard Hutchins'sapocryphal aphorism about exercise.Students seemed more, well, colle-giate . They were like students anywhere .There were probably fewer hightopblack sneakers and anti-social haircutsthan you'd find, say, at NYU, but gonewas the sickly-pale, greasy-hair, Coke-bottle glasses look of my undergraduateyears. Rebecca BellI later found out the Collège wasmaking an effort to make campus lifemore pleasant in an attempt to recruitmore (and happier) students. I hope itworks. Alumni shouldn't over-romanti-cize the memory of Regenstein's A-levelas the center of the universe, or the notionthat the University should be an académie boot camp with the creed, "no pain, nogain."Hyde Park had also changed. Theplace looked more homey, as if it were set-tling comfortably into the neo-subur-banhood so carefully planned 30 yearsago by the urban renewers. Even theseedy old Windemere Hôtel had beenrenovated, and that's where I and threeother Fellows lived. Two others lived inapartments elsewhere in Hyde Park andtwo lived on the Northside.At the weekly two-and-a-half hourBenton seminars, faculty members leddiscussions on issues related to joumalism. The seminars usually went in three-week séquences. During fall quarter,besides the First Amendment, we exam-ined public behavior and political activ-ism with Russell Hardin, professor in thedepartments of philosophy, political science and the Collège and chairman of theCommittee on Public Policy Studies;économies in centrally-planned économies with D. Gale Johnson, the EliakimHastings Moore Distinguished ServiceProfessor and chairman of the department of économies; and the presidencyand the press, with Karl. In that final session, we learned that stylized publicnews conférences began casually, because Président Truman was tired of being misquoted. By the time he realizedwhat a monster he'd created, it was too19late to retract what the press now thinksof as an inaliénable right.Again and again throughout the twoquarters, Karl asked us to look at the rootof problems and trends, and not to use"counter-factional reasoning" to recon-struct the past . Karl, in tum, took the timeto understand how broadcast journalistsworked and thought. There developed ahealthy byplay between us and Karl. Heseemed sympathetic towards our professional shortcomings. We came to admirehis studied style, dry wit, and optimisticskepticism."Barry was the perfect foil," said JimKirchherr. "He made us look at our ownpretensions. I think he made us betterthinkers, and more honest."Karl also led us in a winter quarterséquence of seminars on the relationshipbetween social science and public policy.Also that quarter we were treated to thereflections of Wayne Booth, AM'47,PhD'50, the George M. Pullman Distinguished Service Professor in the department of English language and literature,the Committee on the Analysis of Ideasand Study of Methods, and the Collège.While too often we tried to tie Booth tomundane questions, such as whether"proper" grammar is disappearing fromjoumalism, Booth valiantly tried to showus the fallacy of our notions of "proper"and "standard." Instead, he talked aboutthe writer's création of a voice, and theuses of irony, metaphor and other lin-guistic devices.Robert Aliber, professor in the Grad-Michael Taibbi20 uate School of Business and a member ofthe Committee on Public Policy Studies,focused his seminars on internationalmonetary policy. Because few of us hâvea background in économies, Aliber ex-plained the current monetary crisis andoil crisis of a décade ago in simple terms:when one part of the System grows fasterthan ail other parts for too long, disastermay resuit. In other words, US bankscould not keep lending money to expand-ing nations and expect them to repay. Wefinished that séquence with a debate:should the US hâve an industrial policy?Our conclusion: the US already has anunrecognized industrial policy, so eitherwe should keep going as we hâve or justadmit we've got one and décide how toimprove it. Typical journalists — lots ofquestions but few answers."Ail the faculty members tailored theirseminars to our needs," said Callaway."They didn't talk down to us. In fact, webarely gave them a chance to. We keptjumping in with questions."Callaway himself was a full participant in our seminars. As a professionalinterviewer (he is host of "Chicago To-night" on WTTW-TV), Callaway inter-jected his customary, "Do you mean tosay?" or "On the other hand," from timeto time.The liveliest seminar was saved forlast. Norman Nie, professor in the department of political science and researchassociate in the National Opinion Research Center's Cultural PluralismResearch Center, blasted the media's re-liance on faulty poils."You're using intuitive reasoning,"Nie chided us. "A survey doesn't hâve tobe big to be right .Ithastobe able to insurethat ail the éléments in a def ined universehâve equal probability of falling into asampling frame." We learned about sam-pling units, core values, when to trust apoil (when it accounts accurately for he-terogeneity within its sampling frame),and when to dismiss it, (if, for example,the people responding are self-selecting).Nie 's seminar fell during the weeksGary Hart was in Iowa confounding thepollsters by finishing second in thecaucuses. "Of course," yelled Nie,"caucuses favor the extrême libéral wingof the party because they require activismto participate." Hart also beat WalterMondale in the New Hampshire primarythat week . "The pollsters were asking thewrong questions," said Nie.The Fellows mostly took courses inthe Collège. They were better suited toour needs, and allowed us to interact witha great number of students. At first, the Fellows felt separated from students byour âge, by the fact that we had workedfor a living, and by our non-academicprofession."It was strange at first, " said BeckyBell. "There we were, plunked down inthe middle of a great university. You sit inclass and listen to intelligent dialogue.Of course, you're expected to do thesame. It takes a little while, but you real-ize you're a professional, a reporter, andyou hâve something to contribute, so youspeak up.""The students were interested in us,"said Baer. "Of course, we're older andmay seem strange, but students wantedto know about what we did. In a goodway, too . It wasn' t, 'How can I get a job inTV? ' it was, 'Tell me about broadcast jour-nalism. Should I be interested in it as acareer?' We spent a great deal of timetalking to students— at sherry hours, indorms, or just informally, on the quads.The feedback was positive, on bothsides."One of the Fellows, Mike Taibbi, tookcourses in the Law School. He says henever worked harder. "I was used to being the one who asked the questions.Now ail of a sudden hère I was havingquestions f ired at me at nine in the morn-ing. Thèse were tough questions, too,about Constitutional law and évidence."Taibbi also signed up for a fiction-writing course with novelist Richard G.Stem, professor in the department ofEnglish, the Collège, and the Committeeon General Studies in the Humanities.Taibbi says it may hâve been his mostvaluable class."I got in touch again with the value ofgood writing. I've been writing fiction forUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/Fall 1984a long time, but had never encounteredanyone like Stern. He has such a feel forwords, a love of good writing . He's an en-couraging yet honest teacher." Taibbiwrote three stories during winter quarter. What did he learn? "To stay in jour-nalism, at least for now."Phil Archer and I studied Spanishand Latin American affairs. We both hopeto cover the area, and while my Spanishisn't going to win any awards, I couldnow at least order breakfast in a guer-rilla encampment. Archer and I tookreading courses with historian John H.Coatsworth, professor in the departmentof history and the Collège, in which weread much of the récent literature onCentral America."As a working journalist, I neverwould hâve had the time to read ail thebooks I need to in order to understandwhat's going on there," said Archer. "TheFellowship allowed me to concentrate onone area . Being at the University of Chicago allowed me to expand my knowledgein several areas. It was the best of bothworlds."Other areas the Fellows concentratedin were public policy, urban geography(Jim Kirchherr studied the growth anddécline of one city along the Illinois River), économies, survey analysis, andAmerican history. We learned that thingsare more complkated than they seem.Some added académie treats alongthe way: a course on language in cultureand society with Michael Silverstein,professor in the departments of anthro-pology, linguistics, and behaviorial sciences, chairman of the department ofanthropology and a MacArthur Foundation awardee; a graduate seminar on thePolitics of Conversational Inference; acritical reading of King Lear over onequarter; and a reading course withEdward W. Rosenheim, AB'39, AM'47,PhD'53, the David B. and Clara E. SternProfessor in the department of Englishlanguage and literature and the Collège,which involved spirited discussions ofnostalgia, political satire, and the WhiteSox championship season."Sometimes I was overwhelmedwith the reading," said Archer in his exitinterview. "But it balanced out."Said Baer, "I came hère thinking ofmyself as pretty much a mechanic andnow I don't think of myself that way atail. I think of myself as having grown,having a lot more to contribute."From our plush, renovated offices onthe fourth floor of the zoology building(Formaldehyde Park, as we came to callit), we moved out across campus. Stu Chamberlain joined the Blackfriars musical troupe. Taibbi and I discovered themanicured clay courts of the QuadrangleClub, off-limits to me as a student, andthe remodelled racquetball courts of theField House when the weather turnednasty (early October, as I recall). We ailspent our share of evenings in Regen-stein Library, followed by Jimmy's. Someof us even began to lift weights, inspiredby "coach" Phil Archer. But most of ail,there was talk."It's such a joy not to talk shop," saidArcher. "At work, that's ail there is. Hèrewe discuss Latin American policy, orjournalistic ethics, or how Reagan canremain popular despite the criticismsagainst him, and whether the média aretooeasy on him."We also ventured downtown to talk,or to be talked to. Over bourbon and béerat the Billy Goat Tavern, Mike Royko, theChicago Tribune columnist famous forhis acerbic comments, told us that fellowships just give journalists a bunch of"highf alutin'" ideas and make it tough togo back to the "real world." A few weekslater, WBBM-TV's Walter Jacobson saidhe thought fellowships were alright,wondered why his six-f igure salary madehim seem out of touch with the "littleguy" and asked what Royko had saidabout him.The Fellows also met with, amongothers, Pulitzer-Prize-winning investiga-tive journalist Seymour Hersh, AB'58;John Chancellor; CBS news correspondent Bill Kurtis; and Van Gordon Sauter,executive vice-président of the CBSBroadcast Group and a member of theBenton Advisory Committtee. We alsomet with Hanna Gray, président of theUniversity, and Edward Levi, PhB'32,former président. Gray asked why high-er éducation wasn't better covered by thebroadcast média. Levi, a vétéran of médiarelations, wonderedhow we did our jobs.We were more interested in asking himhow he did his when he was former Président Gerald Ford's attomey gênerai.Again, there was a great deal of conversation about the future of broadcastjoumalism. Somewhere, down the line,it may make a différence. "It's too early tojudge the influence of the Benton program," said Callaway. "But I believe thepeople we send out of hère will, in thenext few years, improve American andeven world broadcasting."There is a danger that six months offun conversation and serious thoughtmay turn Fellows against broadcasting,making it difficult, as Royko suggest-ed, to get back to a reahty of deadlines and 6 a. m. plane trips. But most Fellowssaid the program solidif ied their commit-ment to making broadcasting a betterprofession."The irony of it," said Baer, "is that itmade me more 'professional' even as Iwas having serious doubts about the profession itself. Right off, we ail admittedour business can be superf icial, compétitive, and depressing. So we set out to figure how we could make it better, notto quit."Said Chamberlain of returning towork: "I'm terribly afraid that I'm goingto find it a little trivial or a little boring orless than challenging because my brainhas been inflated a bit hère. There 's newstuf f in there and it's going to want to getout and get used." That may be whatWilliam Benton had in mind. Things aremore complicated than they seem.George BauerAt a farewell dinner for the firstBenton Fellows, attended by members ofthe faculty advisory committee, the national advisory board, and the WilliamBenton Foundation, the chairman of En-clopaedia Britannica, Robert R Gwinn,held up a framed print William Bentonhad given him years before.

Currently, the third génération of Strauses is busy studying or teaching at the University of Chicago, and theyfigure that between the six of them, theyhâve put in about 120 years at theUniversity.This year, the Strauses set a ne w recordfor themselves when three of their fourchildren received degrees from variousparts of the University in one week.Michael graduated from the LaboratorySchool; Christopher graduated from University High School; and Helen, AB'84,graduated from the Collège.The Straus's oldest son, Francis, alsoattended the Laboratory School and University High School.The Straus children who elected toattend a collège where both parents aremembers of the faculty hâve had plenty ofinside information on what it would belike . Both Straus parents are the children offormer faculty members. Lorna's father,the late Ernst Wilfred Puttkammer, JD17(who died in 1978 at the âge of 87), taughtin the Law School from 1925 to 1956, andFrancis's father, Francis Howe Straus,taught in the médical school from 1929 to1941.As children of faculty, the olderStrauses chose to go away for their under-graduate studies, but they returned forgraduate degrees. Lorna, SM'60, PhD'62,who is associate professor in the department of anatomy and the Collège, and whoserved as dean of students in the Collègefrom 1971 to 1982, attended the Collège fortwo years, and then moved to RadcliffeCollège for her last two years of undergrad-uate work. Francis, MD'57, SM'64, attended Harvard before emulating his motherand earning his médical degree at theUniversity. His mother, the late ElizabethKales Straus, earned her M.D. in 1929.Francis is professor in the department ofpathology and associate director of the sur-gical pathology laboratory— following thistime in his father's path.The saga continues. Christopher haschosen to attend the Collège, and will be anentering student this quarter."It sounds as if we hâve no imagina tion, as if we're locked in, but each personhas made his or her own individual décision," said Lorna.Christopher, as did his sister Helen before him, visited other collèges, but foundhimself "looking for a school just like theUniversity of Chicago in another location."Said Helen, " I would hâve liked it if theUniversity of Chicago would hâve pickedup and moved." She chose the Universitybecause it of f ered more in terms of académies and athletics than other schools. Helen,a star athlète, was a Howell Murray Awardwinner, a four-year varsity letter winner infield hockey, basketball, and track, and anAil- American heptathlete who placed f if thamong Division III collèges nationally.When Helen entered the Collège fouryears ago, her parents suggested she moveaway from home."We expect the collège expérience toinclude getting away from the home envi-ronment," said Francis, "but we weredumbfounded by Helen. We trotted herover to the school and got her started anddidn't see her again until Thanksgiving."Helen was able to maintain a degree of anonymity. Some faculty members whosecourses she took were unaware of her parents' identity, and she preferred it that way.The Strauses maintain that their pathson campus rarely cross. "There is enoughroom at the University for people to dotheir own thing," said Lorna.Helen recalled: "One time I was headdown, walking or thinking, and ail of a sud-den I saw a familiar pair of shoes in frontof me, and realized they were mom'sshoes. But that was only about the secondtime I'd seen her."In the photograph accompanying thisarticle, Lorna is wearing the robe and ma-roon velvet cap that proclaim she holds adoctorate from the University. However,on the day she was awarded that degree,June 7 1962, she could not attend convocation. She went, instead, to the hospital togive birth to a daughter, Helen Elizabeth . ItwasonJune9, 1984, that Helen received herA.B. degree, and the family posed for thephoto. As members of the faculty, both ofher parents took part in the convocation.They were just following an old familytradition.Francis Straus, MD'57, SM'64; Michael Straus, Lab School '84; Helen E.

The latter he did very ef fectively without raising his voice or lifting a hand . One mightsay he had a rather "inspiring" glance, and itwas enough to silence a giggle, stifle a yawn,or freeze an across-the-aisle message to yourbuddy.The académies were tough. Of course,there were opportunities for sports and cultur-al activities. Sometimes at the end of a longgrueling day we would complain about a dif f i-cult math instructor or about having to spendfour or five hours on Saturday in English classand "nobody needs to talk that good anyhow."But with ail the complaining you couldn' t hâvetorn us away from the only lifeline we knew.We ail had the same sensé of urgency that bor-dered on desperation. That almost-afraid-to-hope that the dreams we had been protectingfor so long might survive in the real world.OSP's instructors taught us more than how togather, analyze, and présent information,though we did quite a lot of that. We learnedmore than mathematical équations and sentence structure, though we learned thosethings very well. What we really learned wasthat everything knowable was available for usto know; that the contributions we make to theworld are valuable because we are valuable;that we are equalto the task, whateveritis; thatwithout integrity it is impossible not only toachieve your career goals, but to like the per-son you become in the process. Those are thethings that stayed with me when I left the OSPfor collège. I completed a four year libéral artsprogram in three years, (after what I'd beenthrough a normal load of classes seemed awaste of time), and achieved a master's degreea short time later. I am now director of consultation for a multi-service mental health organization. My staff is engaged in helping peoplereject unhealthy lifestyles and find a positivedirection for their lives. I am certain that Mr.Hawkins's influence was a factor in my décision to do this work.The University should be commended forits consistent support of the Office of SpécialPrograms. You are making it possible for manydreams like mine to corne true. And, "say,Mr. Hawkins, I'm still talkin' good" when itcounts.Theresa P MillerCincinnatiNOT A "SCHOOL FORTHE WEALTHY ONLY"Editor:I hâve just read the summer édition.

(See storyon P. 7.)How to Lessen the Nation's Burden of Debt(On fune 4, the Alumni Association presentedPeter G. Peterson, MBA'51, with the AlumniMedal. The following are excerpts from Peterson 'sacceptance speech.)Memories of some of the remarkableminds and personalities that define thisuniversity remain with me.I think of George Stigler, who I be-lieve was the one who said that "If youhâve no alternative, you hâve no problem." Think of how much of our intellec-tual, physical and perhaps most of ail,emotional energy, is spent in life dissect-ing and digesting and diverting prob-lems, when we know there is no alternative. I'm very grateful to George for that.I think of Jacob Viner who once saidto us, "A transition period is a periodbetween two other transition periods."God, when I think how of ten in life, in anorgy of self-absorption and self-importance, we believe that in every crossroad,every transition is a séminal révolution, a"historié" first, as we used to say too of-ten in the Nixon administration. ThisVinerism consoled me when I went toWall Street and I was told that we facedstill another industry révolution, a disaster of course. The "disaster" was compétitive rates in the brokerage business. Mydear friend, James Lorie from the University of Chicago called and said, "Congratulations, Peter, you hâve just joined thelongest price-f ixing conspiracy in the history of America." Having been taughtthat I could not as a University of Chicagograduate tolerate pricing conspiracies,even those that operated to my benef it, Ihad to move on and conclude it was atransition. Was it a révolution? Was it adisaster? Of course not, the "révolution"turned out to be good for nearly every-body, especially the customers and the efficient, innovative firms.I then think of Milton Friedman,whom many of you hâve known. You canaccuse him of many things but never excessive ambiguity. I recall having lunchwith Milton at the Quadrangle Clubwhen Mr. Nixon asked me to be his assistant for International Economie Affairs. Itturned out to be, of ail things, a freelunch. I asked Milton whether I shouldtake the job as Mr. Nixon 's assistant. Withhis usual ambiguity, he said, "absolutelynot." He said, "With floating exchangerates the job is unnecessary; withoutthem it is impossible." He said, "A man By PETER G. PETERSONPeter G. Petersonyour âge should not accept a job that iseitherunnecessary or impossible ."Buthewas right, maybe not for ail the right reasons. Also, in the world according toMilton, oil cartels, like any kind of cartels,could not last very long. I recall vividlyhaving another free lunch with Milton,and saying, "Milton, this cartel has goneon for some time." And he said, "I am oc-casionally wrong in timing but never indirection." That might sound like in thelong run we're ail dead. But I thankMilton because he pointed me, and Ithink the country, in some very importantright directions.I would also like to thank this university for demonstrating something aboutexcellence, intimidating as it might be attimes. Many of you who know GeorgeStigler, our latest Nobel Prize winner,know what a sharp brain and tongue hehas. In the first line of the review he hadwritten on a book dealing with "excellence" George said something like, "Ihâve just read a médiocre book on excellence." But what he and others taught usat the University of Chicago, I believe,was the différence between first rate andsecond rate minds. The bad news wasthat most of us were forced to live withthe sudden, painful discovery that perhaps we were second rate. I'm remindedof the woman on the psychiatrist's couchin the New Yorker magazine. You may re call the psychiatrist was looking at herand saying, "But madam, perhaps youare inferior." The good news is that ailthèse giant names like Stigler, Viner,Lorie, Hayek, Schultz, Friedman, and soforth, they did teach the différence excellence can make.Ail of us should also thank the university for some spécial friendships thathâve made a real différence in our lives.In my case my friendship with GeorgeSchultz, for example, was the main rea-son I was recruited into government service . I met Prof esssor John Jueck at the university, who is hère today, the kind offriend people talk about having but arerarely fortunate enough to hâve.Let me spend a minute to talk aboutnot just the past, but the présent and thefuture. It bothers me that we hâve aneconomy that is in some long term troubleand a political System which has demon-strated neither the vision to see that factnor the capacity for long-range thinkingnecessary to do something about it. Ouréconomie crisis today was not made by inflation two years ago, or interest rates lastyear or unemployment this year, butrather by a "crisis" which has been gath-ering invidious force for more than a décade and now threatens our own prosperi-ty and, most emphatically, our children'sprospects and hopes for prosperity. Wesee it everywhere, in our outmodedplants and equipment, in dwindling pro-ductivity, in inadéquate training for ourworkers, old and young alike, in bridgesthat crumble and harbors that silt up, andin our légal and political Systems whichbecome more and more absorbed andclever with how to divide a pie that hasceased to grow.For too many years our political System has proven itself incapable of acting,except in times of crisis. Alas, this économie climate that I'm describing is notreally a crisis, but it has been caused by alarge range of systemic f actors that are toomundane to put on a placard in a cam-paign. Nonetheless, at différent times,with différent political parties, we lookfor économie wonder drugs to give usquick relief, whether it be most recentlythe supply side miracle or the latest set of"industrial policies." We hâve at othertimes in other administrations looked forexcuses, rather than sound diagnoses.We hâve blamed OPEC. We hâve blamed46 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO M AG AZINF/Fa11 1984Japan. We hâve blamed high commodityprices. The basic problem that we chooseto ignore is that we are spending toomuch, and saving and investing too little .The political and économie mindset thathas developed— many of us in this roomprobably share responsibility for it— wasthat we should assume that anything ispossible, that no resource was scarce, andthat anyone suggesting that they foregoimmédiate opportunity to take advan-tage of a more promising long-term onewas a mindless and certified pessimist.During that same period many of us became absorbed in a host of issues which,no matter how important, should nothâve been allowed to deflect us from theequally important task of f ueling: our f un-damental prosperity and productivitygrowth. Thus, we as a society spent yearsabsorbed in the Vietnam War, in harshconf licts over civil rights, Watergate, andother issues.Throughout this period we felt apowerful, and in many cases a justifiableurge to redistribute our wealth. But whatwe ended up doing was making sure thatinterest group after interest group hadever greater access through the economyso that it became a species of vendingmachine. Regrettably we spent too muchtime granting access to the machine andThe Alumni Association bestowedawards on nine alumni and nine seniors inthe Collège at the annual Awards Assem-bly, held in Breasted Hall of the OrientalInstitute on Reunion Saturday, June 2.The Association 's highest award, theAlumni Medal, went to Peter G . Peterson,MBA'51, who has had a distinguished career in academia, business, and govern-ment. The Alumni Medal is awarded forextraordinary distinction in one 's field ofspecialization and extraordinary service tosociety.Peterson, who is chairman of themerchant banking firm of Peterson,Jacobs, & Company, served as Secretaryof Commerce in 1972-73, under PrésidentRichard M. Nixon. He was chairman ofthe US délégation that negotiated thecomprehensive US-Soviet commercialand lend-lease agreements signed in1972, and was chairman of the NationalCommission on Productivity. Prior to too little in f illing it up. And we learned todistribute everything in this country butpolitical pain. There is, in short, something fundamentally wrong with the waywe are allocating our intellectual, économie, and political resources.Notwithstanding the palliatives thatare coming out of Washington, the simplefact is that the grotesque déficits that thiscountry now faces do matter. They soakup our shallow savings pool urgentlyneeded for investment, they artif iciallyprop the dollar to untenable levels. Theyundermine confidence in the financialmarkets and they sentence us ultimately,and our children, to periods of économiegrowth that are characterized by f its andstarts, by stagnation, by periods of inflation, and by recoveries that provestillborn.In particular need of urgent fiscal attention, even more urgent I would saythan the necessary further scrutiny of avery large défense budget, are the massive entitlements for Social Security, fédéral and military pensions, and médicalcare for the elderly. Far too large a portionof thèse programs go to middle and up-per classes to be either sensible or af ford-able. What is needed is to inject a princi-ple of need and fairness of burden-shar-ing into our décisions about fédéralthat he had served as assistant to the président for international économie affairs.In 1973, Peterson became chairmanand chief executive of Lehman Brothers.The firm had suf fered a loss the year before he took charge; he led it through fivestraight years of record earnings.Peterson earned distinction early inhis career. At the âge of 34, after onlythree years with Bell and Howell, he wasnamed président of the company; twoyears later he became chief executive of f i-cer. Life magazine cited Peterson as oneof the 100 most important Americans under 40 during the 1960s. He was named"Outstanding Young Man of Chicago"(1955) and "Outstanding Young Man ofthe United States" (1961). In 1973 he wasnamed "Business Statesman of the Year"by Harvard University's Business School.In 1975, Peterson founded the Citi-zens for a Strong Energy Program. Président Gerald R. Ford appointed him chair- spending. We need to tie Social Securityand public pensions to sensible and hu-mane indices of genuine need, ratherthan letting them run put of control bydisingenuously calling them universal"rights" or "entitlements" or "social in-surance" programs. I most emphaticallydo not believe that this requires us toabandon a fundamental commitment ofcaring for the needy and insuring somedignity for the elderly. Indeed, we mustreaf f irm our commitment to the poor, butto do that we must identify the resourcesto honor that commitment.This brings me to a final fact we seemmost anxious to avoid in this country—that we are rapidly becoming an aging society. Today's young will retire into anAmerica that will resemble a nation ofFloridas, nearly triple the current elderlypopulation. Over this period our elderly,those who receive the entitlement bene-f its, will grow about twenty times fasterthan the rate of our labor force, those pay-ing the taxes. Setting aside the outwardfact that this is an expensive, self ish, anddirty trick to play on our children, willthey agrée to pay this largely hidden bill?There is a German philosopher who, in aheavy and rather cold way, once said "ItContinued on page 51man of the Quadrennial Commission onExecutive, Législative and Judicial Salaries in 1976.

He served as a trustée ofthe University from 1965 to 1982, on theCouncil of the Graduate School of Business from 1978 to 1981, and was chairmanof the Biological Sciences Visiting Committee from 1966 to 1968.The University Alumni Service Medal, awarded for extended extraordinaryservice to the University, was given to JohnJacob "Jay" Berwanger, AB'36, in honor ofhis services as a volunteer.

Yet until they are mobilized theouteome will be a foregone conclusion.The fundamental fact that I wouldlike to leave with you is that politics asusual has got to be abandoned in favor ofa concerted effort to grapple with aneconomy in long term trouble. In point offact, this is certainly a problem worthy ofan effort to set aside our différences andarrive at a bipartisan determined and sus-tained program to guarantee our childrenprosperity. The trouble has always beenthat the crisis never seems sufficientlyimmédiate to begin, that the steps are toopainful and that each political interest in-sists steadfastly that so long as it is able topursue its own self-interest, the resuitwill be an optimum set of policies. Noth-ing could be further from the truth. Thepolitics I hâve just described are the politics which, by définition, spends ail of itstime distributing and not enough timecreating.

Heknew how to persuade both the richand the not-so-rich to part with theirmoney, for a just cause.On July 1, 1902, in his diennial report, Harper wrote:"1 désire to make the following suggestions tq the public:sression which seems tohâve gained ground that theUniversity, in view of the large gifts which hâve been made toit, is not appréciative of smallergifts, is an entirely erroneousone. There are many ways inwhich a small gift can be used tothe best advantage; in illustration I mention the following:a. A gift of Twenty Dollars as aprize for marksmanship in thework of the Military Company.b. Books, or money for thepurchase of books, even inthe smallest sums.c. The provision of pictures andpaintings for the décoration ofthe many buildings.d. The planting of a single tree.e. The sum of $120 will pay thetuition of a poor student forone year.f. The sum of $480 will carry himthrough his collège course." Had he been hère today, PrésidentHarper no doubt would hâve added:g. The sum of $10 will help the University of Chicago Magazinedefray the costs of printing, andthe costs of mailing the magazine to ail 96,000 alumni, including the 4,000 who live abroad.The Magazine won't stop coming ifyou don't send a gift; the Universitysends it to you free. But a voluntarycontribution from you would be wel-come. Like Mr. Harper, the Magazine ismost appréciative of "smaller gifts."Just make your check out to TheUniversity of Chicago Magazine andsend it to the above address.Thank youFelicia Antonelli Holton, AB'50Editor cm: ooz 73 HO xZcsi- 73ui HOCm O-nnxn>oO>NzME-^ift (-i.trh trffleu eu cii|h-,n 3'< H-a <;oï-"JlOW-.O Pi?M-¦02fll UiAi hrhft3 H0)H.r+OMlsrH'CiûWortd ntir I formation'•¦¦'!
