Payton (Fall, 1985) expressing thoughts I have lived by and tried to expand to the thinking of others ... I havetwo young people in the Development Department here at Michael Reese Hospital whoare fairly new to the field. They are learningfast, but it is pretty much the "how to." I wantthem to learn "why," and your article coversthat so very well. I also want to share it withseveral friends who work in other cities, onein development and the others in the broadersocial welfare field. I think they, too, can usean occasional shot in the arm to remind themthat, while we live in an increasingly dehumanized world, those of us in the generalfield of philanthropy must always rememberthat what we do is, or at least should be, approached as more than just a job.Ruth Warsaw Weiss, AB'38Chicago, ILIS SECULARIZATIONREALLY THE CAUSE?Editor:Robert L. Payton makes a number of mostthought-provoking statements and raises anumber of deeply significant questions,some of which I've mulled over and siftedabout for many hours over many years. I findmyself in full consonance with many of hisopinions, and in dubiety or disagreement onothers. For instance, I question whether thesecularization of our society is the crucialforce in the drying up of private philanthropyor of the sense of noblesse oblige. I wonder, further, whether the psychological motivationsfor altruism— its requirements and rewards-have been adequately and honestly faced byus. And whether teaching "about" philanthropy does not need to grow from the heartupwards, so to speak. I've dealt with this inone of my books, but all too sketchily.I am delighted to read of Payton 's leadership in setting up seminars to study theproblems he has so clearly identified, and Ishall look forward to learning of the conclusions they come to.Thank you for putting a yeasty issue before us.Helen Harris PerlmanSamuel Deutsch DistinguishedService Professor, EmeritusSchool of Social Service AdministrationThe University of Chicago LET'S HOPE THIS ISNOT WHAT YOU TEACHEditor:I received my initial copy of your publication this past week. I am not an alumnusof your college; I just pay tuition/expensesfor one of your current students.I had heard some comments, in everyday conversation, about the liberalteachings/policies of colleges today, including the University of Chicago, before I received your publication. With the exceptionof the usual form letters and propaganda,this is the first "official" publication I havereceived. I certainly hope this is not an indication of what is being taught on an everyday basis at your institution or anywhereelse in this country.In "Letters" and "Chicago Journal" thequestion of divestment in South Africa isdiscussed. Two things about those articlesparticularly gall me. First, Jesse Jackson'sname is associated with a student rally.Isn't it remarkable that the most publicizedracist in this country, for at least the last fiveyears, is worried about civil rights in someother country? Then, President Gray statesthe University's position and doesn't evenmention the most pertinent fact of all. Whyare people concerned about minor civilrights violations in South Africa, whenopen slavery is practiced daily in Marxistcountries around the world? Slavery, in itspurest form, is a trademark of the governments of Russia, Red China, and Cuba— tomention only a few. If you don't like thepolitico-social system in South Africa, youcan always leave. Try that in Russia or RedChina. I noticed that when John and JeanComaroff left South Africa they didn't go toRussia or Red China. Maybe they realizedthey would be going to a country where noonehasany civil rights . . .The article on Joyce Dannen Miller wasnotable for its not-so-subtle hints at earlierinstitutionalization of children in government financed and operated day-care centers. The old "cradle-to-grave" philosphywe hear from totalitarians all the time. Iwould suggest you send her on a sabbaticalto Poland. Her views on government daycare centers at as early an age as possiblewould fit right in with the system they presently have. At the same time, she could recruit women for Solidarity. I understandthey are in need of members, both male andfemale, as a large number are in either "internal or external exile," or missing.The article on Congressman Yates wasprobably the low spot (hard to tell). Why anyone would award a medal to someone whovotes for federal funding of abortions hereand overseas and increases in the size and power of government at every opportunity,and against aid for anti-communist guerrillas in Angola and any attempt at balancingthe budget— totally escapes me. He musthave been the only candidate, or the committee was composed of "liberal democrats."Michael A. Crounse, M.D., F.A.C.E.EPensacola, FLWHY SHOULD THEUNIVERSITY BE FEMALE?Editor:"Non-sexist" my eye!Quick to respond to real or imaginedslights to the female, the staff, studentbody, and faculty remain insensitive to thenot-so-subtle male put-down.Any reason the whole Universityshould be female?Why not adopt the weather bureau's solution? If the first hurricane is Alice, thesecond is Bernard and so forth. Thus, thesong should read:"Today we gladly sing the praise of herwhose daughters and whose sons now loyal voices proudly raise, to bless us with ourbenisons, Of all fair fathers fairest he, mostwise of all that wisest he, most true of all thetrue say we, is our dear Almus Pater."Her mighty learning we would tell tholife is something more than lore; she couldnot love her children well, loved she nottruth and honor more."We praise his breadth of charity, hisfaith that truth shall make us free. Thatright shall live eternally, we praise our AlmaMater."Louis M. Welsh, AB'41Del Mar, CASURELY, YOU JEST?Editor:"Alma Mater Now Non-Sexist" (Fall,1985): Surely, you jest? That progress hasbeen made by adding daughters to the University's sons is patent, as is the fact that oursacred anthem continues to bear the stain ofsexism. The second line ("Of her whosedaughters and whose sons") immediately offends. "Of it . . . ?" Or, better perhaps, "Ofhe/her . . . ?" Line 5 ("Of all fair mothers,fairest she") could be rendered as "Of all fairparents, fairest it." A Latinist is needed to resolve the offense inherent in the words "AlmaMater." Would "Alma Parent" do? (I grant it issomewhat lacking in familiar resonance.) Analternative, of course, is "Alma Ma(Pa)ter,"but I'd be wary; it opens the door to abuse bycloset sexists vocalizing the words; even ifunremarked, in fact, the very suspicion ofContinued on page 49.EditorFelicia Antonelli Holton, AB'50Staff WriterBrigitta CarlsonDesignJansen/Alonzo StudioThe University of Chicago Office ofAlumni RelationsRobie House5757 South Woodlawn AvenueChicago, Illinois 60637Telephone: (312) 753-2175President, The University of ChicagoAlumni AssociationMichael Klowden, AB'67Executive Directorof University Alumni RelationsCarol Jenkins Linne, AB'66Associate Directorof University Alumni RelationsRuth HalloranNational Program DirectorBette ArnettChicago Area Program DirectorMarkReinecke, AM'81Director, Alumni Schools CommitteeJ.

It is the footballplayers who date the film. They scamperacross the screen, recreating a game that isbarely recognizable today.The two teams line up in tight bunchesaround the football, a formation that resembles a rugby scrum. Most of the runningplays, originating from the single wing, arestymied. Occasionally, a few players run outfor passes, but their patterns are not precise,nor are the passes particularly well thrown.The overall play is plodding and brutish, notnearly as swift and wide open as modern-dayfootball.One player on the screen, however, istimeless.Eighty-five yards away from the goalline, he gets the ball at his halfback positionand blasts through a small hole at right tackle with the power of a fullback. A defendercrashes into his legs, but with the stability ofa high-wire walker, he maintains his balance. He wards off another tackier with astraight arm, then cuts to his left, accelerating away from more trouble. He reaches thesideline and turns upfield with sprinter'sspeed. Two more tacklers converge on him.Cleverly, as if his instincts run on radar, hestops dead in his tracks, and the would-betacklers fly by, grasping at air.The halfback's exhausting race is not yetrun. He cuts back to his right to avoid another tackier, receives a teammate's block nearthe center of the field and, finally, weavesaround two more defenders before reachingthe end zone standing up.Who was that back . . . Harmon,Grange, Whizzer White?No. Berwanger. Jay Berwanger and the Heisman Trophy.2 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986By Dave NewhouseIt was November 1935. Jay Berwanger(AB'36) felt the first snap of winter ashe turned up the collar of his overcoatand walked back to the Psi Upsilon fraternity house after another day ofclasses at the University of Chicago.There was much on his mind. Hehad paperwork to take care of as seniorclass president. He wanted to fit insome studying before dinner. He already was thinking ahead to graduation the following spring.Inside the house, he checked hismail and found a telegram."It said I had won some trophy,"Berwanger recalled, "and that therewould be two tickets waiting to take aguest and me to New York. That wasabout it."Berwanger received many trophiesthat fall. He was recognized as the bestfootball player not only in the Midwest,but also in the country. The trophy heprized most at the time, however, wasthe Silver Football presented to him bythe Chicago Tribune as the "Most ValuablePlayer" in the Big Ten Conference.The statue from New York was justone more trophy. It wasn't going tochange his life. Not then, anyway."It wasn't really a big deal when Igot it," he said. "No one at school saidanything to me about winning it otherthan a few congratulations. I was moreexcited about the trip than the trophybecause it was my first flight."Berwanger took Clark Shaughnes-sy, his football coach at Chicago, toNew York as his guest."My New York hotel room washigh up. When I looked out the window, the Statue of Liberty was staringback at me. It was all very exciting for aboy from the Midwest. The only problem was that I got tired of carrying that60-pound trophy in and out of taxis."The New York trophy, which actually weighed 25 pounds, was somewhat of a nuisance once Berwanger returned to the Chicago campus. Therewasn't enough room for it in his roomat the fraternity house, so he asked hisAunt Gussie to keep it for him until after graduation.Gussie said she would, but she hadno more idea what to do with it thanher nephew. She didn't have a mantel piece wide enough. The trophy was toobig for a coffee table. Gussie finallyfound a use for the trophy in her NorthChicago home. Hoping to capturesome cool breezes off Lake Michigan,she realized one day that she neededsomething to keep the front door open.The monstrous trophy from the Downtown Athletic Club did the trick. Forthe better part of ten years, that trophyserved as Aunt Gussie 's doorstop.Nephew Jay got a kick out of that."I used to flip my hat over the trophy'sarm when I'd come to visit," he said.The significance of the trophy from"It was all veryexciting for a boyfrom the Midwest.The only problemwas that I got tiredof carrying that60-pound trophy inand out of taxis."New York wouldn't hit Berwanger until another 15 years had passed, bywhich time Heisman Memorial Trophywinners were regularly turning theircollegiate honors into lucrative professional contracts. "I never dreamed theHeisman would ever be so important,"he said. "Nobody talked about it for 25years. Then television came on thescene, giving college football more exposure, and it became a big deal that Ihad won the first one."I've said a number of times thatthe difference between winning thefirst Heisman in 1935 and winning itnow is like the difference betweennothing and a million dollars."The trophy from New York eventually brought him everlasting fame, butit did not create his fortune in the manufacturing world. Berwanger has prospered on his business acumen, not hisfootball reputation.Even if heading the distinguishedlist of Heisman winners didn't exactly make his a household name back then,there is no question that he deserved itas much as— and perhaps more than—any recipient since.Berwanger was the epitome of theone-man gang. At the University ofChicago he called the plays, ran,passed, punted, blocked, played defense, kicked extra points, kicked off,returned punts and kickoffs, andplayed 60 minutes. He didn't dareleave the field. Chicago had absolutelyno chance of winning without him.In fact, without Berwanger, thefootball program had virtually nochance of surviving. In the four yearsafter he played his last game for Chicago, the Maroons won only one Big Tengame, and the school dropped footballin 1939.The Maroons competed in the BigTen, and won the championship sixtimes-in 1899, 1905, 1907 1908, 1913, and1924. But Chicago was interested in national endowments, not national football rankings. At Chicago, academicscame first, football second. A distantsecond. While Minnesota, Purdue,Michigan, and Ohio State enrolled future big-time coaches and National Football League stars, Chicago's roster wascomposed entirely of budding surgeons,economists and corporate executives."We were OK until the playersstarted getting hurt," Berwanger said."Then we just didn't have the depth tocompete."The Maroons were 11-11-2 duringBerwanger's three varsity seasons.Without him, they would have been farworse. Though Shaughnessy was aninnovative coach, mixing the singleand double wings with the T-formation, Chicago's game plan boileddown to this: If Berwanger could holdthe game close, maybe Berwangercould win it.Opponents knew that to beat Chicago, they just had to beat Berwanger.Predictably, they kept a man on him atall times."The game I remember this way wasagainst Purdue," he said. "Every time Igot the ball, big Ed Skoronski would hitme. His defensive assignment was to gowherever I went, so we never had anyone to block him. He didn't hurt me, but3The Chicago Maroons take on Ohio State in Stagg Field, 1935. The final score was Ohio 20— Chicago 13.he bruised me. After the game, the teamdoctor asked me how I felt. 'Fine, Doc,' Itold him, 'but my legs are sore .' He stucka pin into my legs, about an inch deep,and I never felt it."Morey Rossin (AB'38), who playedbasketball and baseball at Chicagowhen Berwanger attended college andis his good friend today, hasn't forgotten the tactics Big Ten opponents usedagainst Berwanger. "Teams had suicide squads that went after jay," he said. "To get him out of the gamemeant a cinch win."Despite that strategy, Berwangerwas nearly indestructible. He missedonly one game in three seasons, aftersuffering a knee injury as a junior. Butjust to be on the safe side, he wore aface mask after breaking his nose as ahigh school senior and again as a Chicago freshman. "I was told if I broke itagain," Berwanger said, "I wouldn'thave any nose left to repair." The mask was designed by Chicago's team trainer, Wally Bock. It wasmade out of spring steel and had twobars, one running from the top ofBerwanger's helmet to another bar thatran across his mouth. The steel wascovered by sponge and leather. Thecontraption elicited a few chucklesfrom opponents, who called him "TheMan in the Iron Mask," but Berwangerwas simply ahead of his time. He maynot have been the first football player4 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986¦mamW%0$who ever wore a face mask, but he certainly was close.Berwanger has another famousdistinction— he is the only Heisman recipient who was ever tackled by a future president of the United States."Jerry Ford showed me, years later, the scar he has on his cheek fromtrying to tackle me in the 1934 Chicago-Michigan game," said Berwanger, whoscored two touchdowns while leadingthe Maroons to a 27-0 victory over theWolverines in Ford's senior year. Thatgame marked the first time Chicago Berwangerlaunched not onlythe Heisman, butthe NationalFootball Leaguedraft. He was thefirst player everdrafted by the NFL.had beaten Michigan since 1919.Ford hasn't forgotten that game, orJay Berwanger. "When I tackled Jay thatone time, his heel hit my cheekbone andopened it up three inches," Ford saidfrom his office in Rancho Mirage, CA,near Palm Springs. "The impact of thetackle stunned the cheek so it didn'tbleed. I didn't even know anything waswrong until I got back to the huddle andone of my teammates said, 'What happened to you?' I went to the sideline,where the cut was taped, and I continued to play. I played the whole game.You didn't come out in those days."Berwanger's first year at Chicago,1932, was Amos Alonzo Stagg's last.One of the great football coaches of alltime, and certainly the most durable,Stagg coached at Chicago from 1892 to1932. He was seven years older thanthe game itself, and he invented the T-formation at the turn of the centuryand pioneered such innovations as thehuddle, reverse plays, laterals, end-around runs, and unbalanced lines.After the 1932 season, Chicago wasforced to retire Stagg at the mandatoryage of 70 and replaced him withShaughnessy. But Stagg was merelywarming up. He became coach at theCollege of the Pacific in Stockton, CA,and was national Coach of the Year in1943 at the sprightly age of 81. He continued to coach in some capacity untilhe was 98, when he decided it was timeto retire. He died four years later.Stagg Field would become, threeseasons after the grand old man forwhom it was named had left, the showcase for the first Heisman winner.Breakaway Jay. "My strengths were speed and elu-siveness," Berwanger said. "A fullbackis a brave man. He likes to run overpeople. A halfback, by nature, has tobe a coward. He runs away from others. I had 9.9 speed in the 100-yarddash, so I ran away."Berwanger was hardly a coward.He dealt out as much punishment as hereceived. At 6-foot-l and 195 pounds,he was a deadly tackier. Minnesota wasthe national champion during Berwanger's day, and he had 14 tackles againstthe Gophers in one half in 1934.But those who watched Berwangerplay don't remember him for his defense. They remember the runs. As asophomore, he barreled 65 yards for atouchdown against Dartmouth. As ajunior, he returned a kickof f 97 yards toscore against Indiana. As a senior,there were many great runs: a 78-yardkickoff return against Wisconsin, a 49-yard punt runback against Illinois thatturned certain defeat into victory, andof course his most remembered run,the one he still has on film, his 85-yardscamper from scrimmage against OhioState. "That run," Rossin said, "had alittle bit of everything."That run also might have persuaded voters to single out Berwanger asthe first recipient of the DowntownAthletic Club's trophy for the outstanding college football player in theUnited States.Actually, only players on teams eastof the Mississippi River were consideredfor the award in 1935, and only Easternsportswriters were polled. A year later,when the award was renamed the Heisman Memorial Trophy in honor of legendary Coach John W. Heisman, a former director of the Downtown AthleticClub, players nationwide became eligible for the trophy and sportswritersthroughout the United States joined thevoting process.But the voting limitations in 1935do not diminish in the least the value ofthe Downtown Athletic Club's initialaward. Berwanger had plenty of stiffcompetition among players in the East."If he had gone to another school, apowerhouse, he would have donemore," recalled Dr. Omar Fareed,(SB'37 MD'40) who played in the back-4 «f § ftt t -f • t ft, ft,30, 40 ^ 3" 85 • ffThe Chicago Maroons in their 1935 team photo, jay Berwanger is Number 99. Coach Clark Shaughnessy is standing on the right.field with Berwanger. Fareed has beenthe team physican for the U.S. DavisCup tennis team since the mid-1970s."There would have been no way tohold him down. We had a minimum oftalent at Chicago. Jay was like MarcusAllen and all the great ones wrappedinto one. They're darn good, but theyhad good teammates. Everyone has toget blocking, but Jay got the least of anyof them."Fareed remembers when the votewas taken for team captain of the Chicago football team in 1935. He said halfthe players were memDers of Berwanger 's fraternity, while the other half be longed to Delta Kappa Epsilon. Despite the split, Berwanger was electedcaptain unanimously."He was a terrific guy," Fareedsaid. "Still is. If you had a leader likeBerwanger, you were always in thegame. He was a quiet guy who led byexample. If someone missed a block, henever complained. I never heard himchew anyone out."For his part, Berwanger isn't convinced that he would have been a betterfootball player at a college that took football more seriously than did Chicago."Because we didn't have a lot ofplayers," he said, "I had to do every thing. At these other schools, I wouldhave played offense and defense, butthey would have had somebody elsekick off and return punts and kickoffs.And you never know, I might have broken a shoulder or leg."At Chicago, Berwanger had a coachwho maximized his versatile skills:Clark Shaughnessy.Shaughnessy was a football junkie.He must have concluded early in lifethat he was put on Earth to diagramplays because he turned them out at afeverish pace. He was a master of innovation, devising new formations by theweek and sometimes by the day. It was6 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986a practical necessity at Chicago, wherehe didn't have the manpower to standup to stronger Big Ten teams and therefore had to beat them with strategy. Hewas fortunate to have intelligent athletes who learned quickly Fareed, whois 5-foot-10, remembers a formationwhere Shaughnessy tried to hide himbehind the center in an attempt to confuse the defense.Berwanger has fond memories ofhis coach. "He was wonderful for me,"Berwanger said. "Shaughnessy wasable to see what potential I had. Wehad eight or nine offensive formations,mostly running, which was my strongest suit."Back in 1933, when Shaughnessy Berwanger hasanother famousdistinction — he isthe only Heismanrecipient who wasever tackled by afuture president ofthe United States.received the Chicago job, he receivedBerwanger as well. Dutch, as Berwanger was known to his teammates, stoodout quickly as a sophomore, when hewas named the team's most valuableplayer. He rushed for 667 yards (3.6 average), completed 11 passes for 219yards and scored eight touchdowns,including four against Cornell in hisvarsity debut. He handled the punting,kicked seven extra points and playedevery minute of five conferencegames.Chicago's football roster shranknot only because of injuries, but alsobecause of test scores."Half the players on my freshmanteam eventually flunked out of Chicago," Berwanger said. "At the end of myfirst academic quarter, Fritz Crisler,then the Princeton coach, told me thatafter I flunked out of Chicago myfreshman year, to phone him collect,and he would get me the train fare tocome to Princeton and start over as afreshman."Berwanger persevered and maintained a C-grade average over fouryears at Chicago. "And I worked likehell for those Cs," he said. They werehonest Cs, not gift grades handed outto athletes to ensure their eligibility.Chicago played no favorites, not evenif they were All- Americans.Berwanger was even more impressive as a junior, when the Maroonswon their first four games, includingthat shutout of Gerald Ford and defending Big Ten champion Michigan,but lost their last four. For the season,Dutch ran for 595 yards (4.3 average), passed for 297 yards, returned 13 kick-offs for 347 yards, scored eight touchdowns and kicked eight extra points.Berwanger made several All-Americateams. Fielding H. Yost, coach of Michigan's "point-a-minute" teams of theearly 1900s, praised him as the bestplayer in the Big Ten.He was probably the conference'sfinest all-around athlete, a versatiletrackman with Olympic decathlon potential. Besides the 100, he ran the 120-yard high hurdles (15.6 seconds), the440 (49.0 seconds), pole vaulted (12-6),high jumped (5-8), broad jumped (24feet), put the shot (38 feet), and threwthe javelin (190 feet).Berwanger was a one-man gang intrack as well as football, placing thirdin the Kansas Relays decathlon as asenior. He contemplated taking thespring off his senior year to concentrate seriously on the decathlon. Freefrom academic pressures, he believedhe could make the U.S. team thatwould compete in the 1936 OlympicGames in Berlin."For most of my decisions, I had torely on sound judgment," he said. "Italked with one of the university's vice-presidents for three hours on what Ishould do. He told me it would be difficult for me to come back and get my degree, the times being what they were.He convinced me that a degree fromChicago would be more beneficial to melater on than the Olympic experience."Berwanger stayed in school andgraduated on time. He does not regrethis decision. "The degree has meant alot to me," he said. "Look at the prostoday who don't have their degrees.When their football is done, what dothey do?"With studies, sports, and campusjobs occupying most of his time, youngJay Berwanger had little social life . A fraternity brother with a car — a big statussymbol during the Depression— dated agirl at Northwestern, and Berwanger occasionally went along on blind dates."You didn't date much back then," hesaid. "Not only didn't I have the time, Ididn't have the money."In his last season of football,Berwanger rushed for 577 yards (4.8 average), passed for 405 yards, scored sixtouchdowns and converted five extra-point attempts. For the third straightyear he performed practically everyduty on the field, including kickoffs,kickof f returns, and punts. He finishedhis career at Chicago with an averageof 373 yards per punt and 25.7 yardsper kickoff return. There was nothinghe could not do well.On December 10, 1935, club President Walter L. Conwell presented thefirst Downtown Athletic Club Trophyto Berwanger, who looked at thebronzed figure and assumed that ithad been sculpted in his own image.The Des Moines Register once hadphotographed Berwanger in a rehearsed scene, cutting across the lensof the camera, the ball under his leftarm, his right arm sticking straight out.Berwanger remembered Chicago's athletic department sending the pictureon to the Downtown Athletic Club."My first wife said she knew it wasme (on the trophy) because my sockswere always down around my shoes,"he said.Neither Jay Berwanger nor his latewife, Philomela Baker, (AB'38, AB'40),had ever heard of Ed Smith, the NewYork University backfield star who actually had posed for the trophy.Berwanger launched not only theHeisman, but also the National Football League draft. He was the first player ever drafted by the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles selected him in 1936,but George Halas of the Chicago Bears,looking for a hometown draw as wellas a great player, obtained the signingrights to Berwanger.Not long afterward, Berwangerhappened to run into Papa Bear himself at the Palmer House in Chicago."How much money would you liketo play for the Bears, Jay?" said Halas,kicking off informal negotiation.Berwanger had absolutely no interest in professional football. At thetime, it offered none of the glamour ormonetary gains available today.Berwanger knew there was more money and greater long-range potential inthe business world. Besides, Halas waspaying his players in IOUs."Twenty-five thousand dollarsover two years," he told Halas. Jay Berwanger in 1935Papa Bear looked at Berwangerstrangely, stroked his chin, and promised that he would get back to him. Henever did."I gave him a figure I knew hewouldn't agree to," Berwanger said.What if he had?"I guess I would have signed."When Berwanger learned that hisalma mater was considering cancelingits football program in 1939, he protested."I wasn't in favor of it," he said."The university president at the time(Robert M. Hutchins) said the school hadseveral choices. We could buy a team,'Hutchins said, 'but the Chicago Bears aren ' t for sale . We could drop down a level or we can drop football altogether.'"One of the trustees was adamantthat we stay in the Big Ten. I arguedwith him, saying we should drop out ofthe conference but play schools morelike ourselves— Ivy League universities—and we'd still draw 30,000 to35,000 at Stagg Field."Hutchins listened to both sides, thenmade a decision. "Here we have two experts on college football," Berwanger remembers the university president saying, "and you can't agree what must bedone. So we'll drop it entirely."Berwanger became a naval officerduring World War II after goingthrough the Navy's flight-training program. After the war, Berwanger andUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986his family moved into a brick apartment house in Chicago, where he discovered that the foam-rubber businessfor which he had been a salesman before the war had been closed. He quickly went to work building his own business from scratch.It was about that time that Berwanger finally rescued his Heisman Trophy from duty as a doorstop."What happened," he explained,"was that my son, who was four at thetime, came home from nursery schoolone day and said, 'Who's Jay Berwanger?' My wife and I looked at each other. It was time to tell him who I was. Wegot out the scrapbooks. I called AuntGussie and got the Heisman Trophyback."Jay Berwanger, Inc., the businessstarted by the blacksmith's son afterthe war, now is located at 1245 WarrenAve. in Downers Grove, IL, a 45-minute drive west of Chicago. Berwanger is the first Heisman winner, but hedoesn't advertise it. His name isn'tblinking in neon lights outside thebuilding. A "1245" is visible on thefront door, nothing more. Very unpretentious, like the man for whom thecompany is named.Berwanger is a kind man, a gentleman. He has precious little ego and isnot consumed by who he is— the original Heisman hero, the successful businessman. "I was just fortunate that1935 was the first, year they presentedthe Heisman, and I won it," he said.And that's all. Berwanger doesn'tfeel special being the first. "Other thanI get more publicity than the third orfourth winner, no." he said. "I haven'ttried to seek publicity."Jay Berwanger, Inc., manufacturesplastic and sponge-rubber strips forcar doors, trunks, and farm machinery; it distributes its products nationally Now in his seventies, Berwanger isin the process of retiring.On the day I visited, Berwangerdrove a gray Buick along back countryroads toward Chicago while talkingabout his family. His three children-two sons and a daughter— are grown.His first wife, a Chicago graduatewhom he married in 1940, passed away.They had been friends of Joe and JaneTemple. Joe Temple had pledged Berwanger into the Psi Upsilon fraternity. After Joe died, Jay and Jane learned in time that they could be more thanfriends. They were married in 1976.Berwanger is like an excited collegefreshman when he gets a chance toshow off his alma mater. He pointedout one building where he took geography, another where his business classes were located. He then pulled up hiscar to an abstract sculpture in an openarea. The sculpture sits on the spotwhere Enrico Fermi, professor of physics at Chicago, and a team of scientiststriggered the first artificially producednuclear chain reaction on December 2,1942."How much moneywould you like toplay for the Bears,Jay?" said Halas,kicking off informalnegotiations."And right there," Berwanger said,pointing to the sculpture, "is where thewest stands of Stagg Field used to be."Berwanger drove to the back of thecampus, where a portable set of bleachers rests on a stretch of lawn. This is thenew 1,500-seat home of the ChicagoMaroons, who resumed intercollegiatefootball at the Division III level 30 yearsafter dropping out of the Big Ten. TheMaroons now compete in the MidwestConference. They no longer play OhioState, Michigan, and Purdue, but theyhave renewed rivalries with Beloit, Ri-pon, Lake Forest, and Lawrence, someof which date back to 1892. Berwangersees the Maroons play when timepermits.It began to snow as Berwanger maneuvered the Buick into a parking spotreserved for him behind the campusalumni office by Rossin, who is retiredfrom the gourmet food and liquor business and works part-time for the university as a fund-raiser. Berwanger hashelped him on numerous fund drives."Jay has been one of our most loyal alumni," Rossin said. The universityshowed its appreciation when it presented him with the University AlumniService Medal in 1984.After lunch, Berwanger and Rossinwalked over to Bartlett Gym, entering under a stained-glass window ofRowena presenting a sword to Lancelot. Downsword and to the right is theJay Berwanger Trophy Room, dedicated in 1978.Old leather footballs, swelled tothe size of pumpkins and dating as farback as 1892, are lined up in glasscases. The shape of the footballs explains why they were so hard to throwand so easy to drop-kick during thesport's adolescence.Also displayed is a large paintingof Stagg, a photograph of WalterEckersall (an All-America quarterback for Chicago from 1904 to 1906) andcertificates noting Berwanger 's induction into the College Football Hall ofFame in 1954 and his inclusion onSports Illustrated's 25-year anniversaryAll-America Team, which honored players whose accomplishments extendedbeyond the football field.Pinned to the wall is Berwanger'smaroon-and-gray jersey, No. 99, withgray patches on the sides and along thesleeves. "They sprayed stickum on thepatches to keep us from fumbling,"said Berwanger.He walked over to, and stopped infront of, the first Heisman Trophy.His trophy.He gave it to the university. Rightbelow the droopy socks is a fading inscription: "Presented by the Downtown Athletic Club of New York City toJohn J. Berwanger, University of Chicago, as the Outstanding Football Playerof 1935."Encased in glass in the trophy roombearing Berwanger's name on the campus he loves, the first trophy from NewYork is safe from ever being a doorstopagain. #Dave Newhouse is a sports columnist forthe Oakland Tribune and a sports talk-showhost on radio station KNBR in San Francisco.This article is adapted from his book, HEIS-MEN: After the Glory (Copyright 1985 TheSporting News Publishing Co., St. Louis,MO. Reprinted by permission.)9Coach Mick Ezoingand members of the Maroons football teamBy Steven Fif fer IF IT STHURSDAY-NO FOOTBALLPRACTICEThe new Monsters of the Midway emulate their forebears.October 13, 1985Despite a cold and unrelentingrain, the new Monsters of the Midwaytook to the practice field last Tuesday.Off to their best start in years, the teamwith perhaps the grandest football tradition in the land was not about to bebeaten bv Mother Nature. On the sideline the man who has brought winningback to Chicago exhorted his charges,and for a moment a spectator sensedthe presence of the new coach's leg-endarv forebear, the crusty competitorresponsible for the creation of the modern game.The practice was an important one, for Tuesday is the only day the entiresquad is able to work together. Chemistry and biology labs claim severalplayers on Mondays, Wednesdays, andFridays. Forget about Thursdays; 19players have labs, so practice isn't evenscheduled.What's this7 Have the ChicagoBears of George Halas and now MikeDitka gone soft in the head? But whosaid anything about the Bears? Theoriginal Monsters of the Midwayplayed their football from 1892 underAmos Alonzo Stagg at the Universityof Chicago, and until the school dropped the sport after the 1939 season, the team lived up to that nickname, winning six titles in the Western Conference (now the Big Ten), going undefeated five times and producing thefirst Heisman Trophy winner, the halfback Jay Berwanger, in J935.Today, the field on which the forward pass flourished under Stagg, andwhere the T-formation was further developed under Clark Shaughnessy, hasbeen replaced by the library. That fieldwas also the secret birthplace of theatomic bomb. More recently, one of thebest-kept secrets in Chicago, not tomention the nation, has been that theuniversity reinstated varsity football in10 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 19861969. Because the last 15 seasons havebeen lean ones, the secret seemed to bein little danger. The few fans who didknow of the team had a curious way ofdemonstrating their support when theiroutmanned heroes fell behind. Proud oftheir academic, if not athletic, superiority, they would taunt their rivals withchants like: "That's all right/ That's okay/You're going to work for us some day."But now, chemistry and biology labsnotwithstanding, the new Monsters ofthe Midway, with three victories and twolosses going into yesterday's gameagainst Beloit, are challenging for another league championship, this one not ofthe Big Ten, but rather of the MidwestCollegiate Athletic Conference. And theopponents are not Michigan, Illinois,and Ohio State, but Division III foes suchas Coe, Knox, Beloit, Lawrence, andLake Forest. Still, for the first time inyears, the stands at the new Stagg Fieldare full— a couple of games drew capacity crowds of 1,500— and students are actually talking about the football team."We used to be looked at as a joke by ourclassmates," said the junior cornerbackPaul Song, "but not anymore."Classmates were not the only oneswho refused to take the team seriously."When we took the field, our opponents would say things like, 'Whereare your calculators, you geeks?' recalled the junior guard Jim Kapotas."Everyone scheduled us as theirhomecoming opponent," said AndrewJaffee, a junior defensive lineman.More disturbing, some playersthemselves seemed to accept losing asinevitable. The senior tailback BruceMontella recalled his freshman yearwhen the team went 0-9. "A lot of theolder players seemed to give up afterthe first game," said Montella. "Icouldn't deal with it. I didn't have togo to Mental Health or anything, butcoming out of high school, it shatteredmy ideals."* * *The task of rebuilding Montella'sideals and the entire program fell toMick Ewing, who became the headcoach in 1983, inheriting the squad thathad not won. Ewing is a soft-spokenman in his sixties who turned to football after it became apparent that he had grown too big to realize his dreamof becoming a jockey. He has been ahigh school and college coach. He hadbeen an assistant at Chicago when hetook the job and was fully aware thatthe university had dropped footballwhen it had become apparent that toremain competitive it would have tocompromise its high academic standards. He was also aware that the current administration had no intention ofsacrificing those standards."I fully support that philosophy,"he said before practice. "We are looking for students who also happen toplay football. This is an amateur sport.We don't pay our players. What did Iread this week that someone was getting $18,000 to play at some college?"The university's entire football budget,save for its preseason camp, totals only$25,000.How has Ewing managed to put acompetitive team on the field? "Thefive M's," he explained. "Motivation,method, management, manpower,and morale." Morale was particularlylow when he took over. Many playersthought the university administrationhad little regard for them. "My freshman year we had to eat our preseasonmeals in the hospital cafeteria," saidMontella, who will be eating moremeals there now that he has been accepted at the university's PritzkerSchool of Medicine.Ewing immediately made the program more attractive to present and future players by improving eating andhousing and traveling conditions andthen set about recruiting qualifiedstudent-athletes from winning highschool programs. Recruiting consistedof asking high school coaches to recommend players who might also meetthe university's demanding admissionstandards. "There is absolutely no special consideration given to athleteswith respect to admissions, financialaid, or classes," said Ewing.Paul Haar, a 5-foot-ll-inch 225-pound freshman guard from Lincoln,NE, is a typical Ewing recruit. As ahigh school senior, Haar earned all-state honors, but he had neither thesize nor the interest to join many teammates and friends at the University ofNebraska. "I tried not to let football be a factor in picking a school," said Haar,who was also president of his highschool French and math clubs, and anaccomplished saxophone player."When I applied to Chicago, I didn'tknow if there was a football team . I wasinterested in the physics program."Ewing sold Haar on the academic opportunities first, then disabused himof some provincial notions. Said Haar:"I didn't know much about Division IIIfootball, like whether they still woreleather helmets."Haar's presence in the offensiveline along with that of Kapotas has allowed Ewing to institute a one-back offense featuring Montella, who rushedfor 305 yards in 40 carries against Knoxon September 21, and was namedSports Illustrated's Offensive Player ofthe Week.Ewing feels that Kapotas, Montella, and the junior linebacker Ted Repass are small-college All-Americacandidates. Repass, who made 14 tackles in the victory over Knox, was inEwing's class of recruits. "You can seethe change here," Repass said. "We'regetting people with winning attitudesand we're finally getting the number ofpeople we need." The team that Ewinginherited had only 35 players. Thisyear's team has 59 players, including 31lettermen.A close inspection of this year's official team photograph reveals thepresence of a 60th player, a white-haired gentleman wearing jersey No.99. This ringer is the Heisman winner,Berwanger, now a successful Chicagobusinessman in his seventies."It was great that he joined us,"said Jaffee, the lineman. "It marked alink between the old and the new. Hecould relate to us and we could relateto him. We're not the University of Chicago power of the 1920s or 1930s, butthere's definitely a link." •Steven Fiffer, JD'76, has given up thepractice of law to devote himself full-time tofree-lance writing.

But Chicagowas able to rebound to win their lasttwo games.Chris Anderson of the Office of University News and Information contributed to thereporting and writing of this article. Ray Sons, sportswriter for the Chicago Sun-Times, has called Montella"Chicago's finest back since JayBerwanger." Montella was tested onNovember 6 by scouts from the Washington Redskins in preparation for theNational Football League draft. During the season other NFL scouts occasionally dropped by to observe him."NFL scouts who have been out tolook at Bruce say things like 'he's deceptive,' 'he makes tacklers miss,' 'he'sgot great acceleration,'" said MickEwing, head coach since 1983. ButMontella is realistic about playing inthe pros."What I plan on doing is becominga doctor," said Montella, who was recently admitted to the University'sPritzker School of Medicine. "But Ithink it would be a great experience tospend a few days in an NFL camp andget cut," he said. "I'd be happy withthat."The credit for the Maroons' winning year, Montella and Ewing agree,goes to the entire team. "It's great tohave someone as talented as Bruce,"said Ewing. "It's focused so much positive attention on the program. But wecan't overlook the other talent on theteam. We've been building for a coupleof years now. It's a complete team effort. Nowhere was that more evidentthan in the final game."The effort for that game, however,extended beyond those who coachedand played the game. In seasons past theUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986team has made the four-hour ride to De-Pere for the St. Norbert's game on themorning of the game. As game day approached, Ewing fretted over the effectson his team's game. Aided by an enthusiastic group of parents (who loyally tryto make it to every game), the teamscrambled for funding for an overnightstay, found it, and traveled to DePere onFriday afternoon. "It allowed us to playthe game on equal terms," said Ewing."It made a big difference."Montella clinched the nationwideDivision III rushing title in typical styleduring that game. He gained 185 yardsthat included a 64-yard touchdownrun. It brought his season total to 1,372on 265 carries, making him top in theNCAA Division III for the year.At this writing, Montella is theleading candidate for tailback Ail-American and Academic Ail-American(All-American, as chosen by the American Football Coaches Association,honors the best player at eachposition— and only one player in Division III at each position— in the country. Academic All-American, awardedby the College Sports Information Directors of America, honors the bestplayer at each position who has a 3.2G.RA. or better).Along with Montella, junior TedRepass, middle linebacker, is a candidate for All-American. Four membersof the team are candidates for Academic All-American: seniors John Campbell, offensive center, and GeorgeDonovan, tight end; and juniors JimKapotas, offensive guard, and DavidBaker, outside linebacker.Montella, a linebacker in his freshman year at Chicago, returned to thebackfield when Mick Ewing becamehead coach three years ago. "The firstyear he played fullback, but last yearwe moved him to tailback. He didn'tlike it too well. He felt like he was cuedin well at fullback. He had to learn newreads and kind of resisted it. But afterthe first game, when he had 146 yards,I think he changed his mind."Montella was quarterback atThornton Fractional South HighSchool in Lansing, a southern suburbof Chicago, and says if he had his way, ^Ssi^«i2^*::ttl64«.*i:At the homecoming day game the Stagg Field track was dedicated in memory of the late Edward M."Ted" Hay don, PhB'33, AM'54, track coach for 30 years. President Hanna Gray and College juniorRonald Molteni unveiled the plaque."1 would have been playing quarterback since my junior year in highschool." In fact, Montella thinks versatility has been his curse. "I've alwaysbeen the kind of player that could playtwo, three or four positions, so as far asthe coaching staff is concerned, I'm theguy you put in the weak spot." ButMontella didn't think of playing football when he chose the University ofChicago for its better-known attributes: an excellent liberal arts education and a small student body. Now headmits that finding time for football, apart-time job, and schoolwork can befrustrating. "I would never haveguessed I'd spend as many hours inthe library as I do. You don't go to sleepeasy if you don't work hard."Montella is one of five seniors onthis year's team. The others are centerCampbell, tight end Donovan, tailbackCarl Oros, and tackle Paul Gibbons.The defensive squad, however, will bereturning intact, forming an experienced base on which to build nextyear's team.Meanwhile, Ewing reports that recruiting talented, academically qualified players for next year is becoming easier. "All the publicity means thatplayers we used to go out beating thebushes for are now calling us." 9Jay Berwanger gives the Maroons a pep talkbefore the homecoming day game.^^,^Vl*GOOD TEACHERS:S^^^^^2aB3^^!5E^^Sa^^2ES^^S^^Sg&**¦ FfggmfAfr .mONORINGA j/RADITIONWhat makes forexcellence in teaching? This yearsQuantrell winners,disparate in theirsubject matter, allhave the ability tocommunicate, asense of the largerissues behind theirtopics, and a graspof their limits.By Brigitta CarlsonPhotographs by Steven Gross More than fifty years ago fiveUniversity faculty members,much to their surprise, discovered they had been awarded checksin recognition of their teaching, fromfunds donated by an anonymousalumnus. By 1938 an endowment hadbeen established for yearly teachingawards by the alumnus, who felt academic honors often neglected education in favor of research. It wasn't until1954 that Ernest E. Quantrell, X'05, aninvestment banker and Universitytrustee, consented to the formal naming of the awards. The Llewellyn Johnand Harriet Manchester QuantrellAwards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, named for his parents,are now believed to be the oldest awardfor teaching undergraduates in thecountry. Given to four teachers a year,the award carries with it a stipend of$2,500.Mathematician Alfred Putnam,whose first Quantrell Award in 1952was presented by Quantrell himself inan "extremely informal" afternoongathering at the Quadrangle Club, washonored again last year with a secondQuantrell. John Mearsheimer won theQuantrell for the success of his undergraduate courses on national securityissues. Hugh Wilson, AM'68, PhD'69,who also won the award, fills the auditorium in the Cummings Life ScienceCenter with his multi-dimensionalcourse on the human brain. Lisa Cronewon the Quantrell for her dedicatedwork with students in difficult third- and fourth-year Russian languagecourses. Although the courses theyteach are disparate, the four award-winners have in common the ability toconvey their subject, be it politicalstrategy or Russian grammar, with enthusiasm and good humor, a sense ofthe larger issues behind topics, and anunderstanding of their limits."I can't simply stand here and youcan't simply sit there and contemplateit," Putnam, professor in the Department of Mathematics, admonishes aclass of sleepy freshmen consideringthe enormous fraction in front of them."A messy fraction can be made into abetter fraction by simplifying. Whathappens if you try?" With some deftmaneuvering the fraction does, indeed, look less intimidating. "Is thatright?" he asks. "Any objections? Noneed to applaud. But is there any complication at this point?"Animation, exuberance, and clarity. The qualities that Putnam tries to instill in his lectures are meant to involvestudents in the process of thinkingthrough problems. "It's easy to concentrate on the technique and onproblem-solving" he says. "But ifthat's all that's coming across, then Ithink a crucial aspect of the subject hasbeen overlooked. They fit together in aconceptual design, which is crucial tothe understanding of the subject." Hestrives to convey the design clearly andenergetically in each lecture, he says,14 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986but, watchful of his own performance,adds, "I don't always achieve it."Putnam's field of study is the history of algebra but his greatest concernhas always been teaching. "I had verymuch in mind the importance of teaching and my interest in being a teacher,"he says of his first year as a graduatestudent at Harvard University, wherehe received both a master's degree anda Ph.D. "I also know that I didn't do itvery well." The latter was pointed outto him by Saunders Mac Lane, SM'31,Max Mason Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, then his mentor atHarvard, who after sitting in on a classPutnam taught showed the then-graduate student how the class shouldhave been conducted. "It was as painful an hour as I've spent, but it was alsovery productive," says Putnam.In his attempt to impart the knowledge of how mathematics works, aswell as how problems are solved, Putnam has helped create a tutorial program integral to mathematics classes inthe College. The Junior Tutor program,created in response to students whocame to the College in the late 1960sand early 1970s with "unusually weakbackgrounds in mathematics," employs undergraduate tutors who workwith College mathematics classes inproblem-solving sessions. Putnam'sgoals for the sessions are similar tothose for his own teaching: He wantsstudents to participate in the process ofunderstanding problems. "Ideally, theJunior Tutor isn't there to answer questions, but to get the students to ask andanswer their own questions," he says.As a regular participant in the College Fellow program, Putnam acts as a"mentor" to the graduate student assigned to him for a year of hands-onteaching experience. Diane Herrmann,SM'76, associate director of undergraduate studies in the department,was Putnam's Fellow from 1976 to 1977."He does a really great job," she says,noting his penchant for "wonderingout loud" in class, the thematic development of his courses, and his flexibility with and sensitivity to students. Asdirector of National Science Foundation-sponsored Summer MathematicsInstitutes in the 1960s and 1970s, Putnam has worked to help high schoolteachers from around the country deepen their understanding of mathematics. "We had some outstandingteachers who participated," he says. "Ifeel very proud of the work we did inthose years."With the awarding of his secondQuantrell, Putnam joins the companyof only three other faculty memberswho have won the award twice. Norman Maclean, PhD'40, William RaineyHarper Professor Emeritus in English,won the award in 1941 and 1973. JosephSchwab, PhB'30, SM'36, PhD'38, William Rainey Harper Professor Emeritus of Natural Sciences, won it in 1938and 1965. And Norman Nachtrieb,SB'36, PhD'41, professor emeritus inthe chemistry department, won theQuantrell in 1962 and 1977 In recallingthe receipt of his first Quantrell, Putnam describes it as "tremendously rewarding and satisfying" to the youngteacher embarking on his career. Hissecond award, he says, is an "evengreater surprise," adding, "I'm equally proud to receive this acknowledgement of a career at the University, inwhich teaching has been my most important concern.""I had very much inmind the importanceof teaching and myinterest in beinga teacher."John Mearsheimer, associate professor of political science, believesthat history can teach us how toprevent war."Many of the problems we dealwith in the nuclear era have their rootsin the pre-nuclear era," he says, speaking in his crowded Albert Pick Hall office. "We can understand and dealwith those problems much better if weunderstand their origins." Nuclearweapons have fundamentally changedinternational relations, he says, because they are so "absolutely horrible," but "that doesn't mean that they il v i«iriM\i\raiAlfred Putnamso transform international relationsand security issues that the past is nowcompletely irrelevant."Although Mearsheimer has onlytaught at the University for four years,he won the Clark Distinguished Teaching Award at Cornell University in 1977when he was still a graduate studentthere. His courses on nuclear strategyand military affairs, "War and theNation-State," "Strategy and ArmsControl," and "American Grand Strategy, 1900-1984," have been praised bystudents as "entertaining," "energetic," and, simply, "excellent."What history gives one, saysMearsheimer, is a "healthy sense ofhow fragile the international systemis." One has the sense, he adds, "looking at the past, of how easy it is to beled down the primrose path, how easyit is to make fundamental errors injudgment. And oftentimes those errors have catastrophic consequences.In the nuclear age the consequences ofmaking the wrong decision are fargreater."Of great importance to Mearsheimer is that he present his students withissues of national security in their fullcomplexity. "Many people tend tothink that the issues are relativelyclear-cut and straightforward," hesays. "Many people feel that we15should abolish nuclear weapons. Andthere's nothing more to be said, exceptto go about doing that. The fact is theissue is much, much more complicatedthan that." He works hard not to proselytize in his courses, and tries, instead, to present major issues, withtheir countervailing arguments and explanations, in a broad context. In theCommon Core class he also teaches,"Political Economy," he urges his students to keep the "big picture" inmind. "At this point we're in the forestand we're looking at each one of thetrees," he says during a session devoted to Karl Marx, "We'll put all the treestogether as we get toward the end."Mearsheimer, who graduated fromthe United States Military Academy in1970, entered Cornell University afterfive years in the air force, with the intention of becoming a policy analyst. Instead, he was drawn into the life of ascholar, andcompleted his Ph.D. in government in 1980, after working for a yearas a research fellow at the Brookings In-John Mearsheimer stitution. He spent two years as a research associate at Harvard University,where he expanded his thesis into thebook, Conventional Deterrence, (CornellUniversity Press, 1983). His secondbook, to be published this year, is a "critical biography" of B.H. Liddell Hart,military correspondent for the LondonTimes from 1935 to 1939, and a central figure in pre-World War II Britain."What history givesone is a healthysense of how fragilethe internationalsystem is."Mearsheimer 's own opinions ofAmerican decisions on national securityissues are mixed . He is strongly committed to the presence of American armedforces in Europe. But he calls the administration's plan for a Strategic DefenseInitiative in space (or "Star Wars") a "really stupid idea," its feasibility "muchado about nothing." On a number ofother issues, he says, "I would be lessthan honest if I didn't say that I find itvery difficult to come down on one sideor the other. I think that a lot of the arguments against the MX missile are quiteconvincing. At the same time, I alsothink a lot of the arguments for the MXare quite convincing."What concerns Mearsheimer mostis that the issues themselves should beapproached with an informed andopen mind. "There's no doubt that nuclear weapons and the threat of warpresents real problems," he says. "Thequestion then becomes, 'How do youdeal with these problems?' You don'tdeal with these problems by stickingyour head in the sand. You deal withthem by examining them in a careful,rational way," he says. The necessity ofa thorough discourse on strategy andarms control in the nuclear age is one ofthe reasons Mearsheimer sees the studying, and teaching, of these subjectsas terribly important. "You can't solveUNIV all the world's problems by teaching acourse on national security issues," hesays, "but it's a start."* * *Hugh Wilson, associate professor of pharmacological andphysiological sciences, grapples with an old question: How doesthe mind perceive reality? Wilson isstudying one mechanism for seeingthe world accurately: the visual cortex.But he brings to his research an appreciation of the philosophical quality ofhis search into the nature of perception. With a Ph.D. in chemical physicsand a master's degree in philosophy,both from the University of Chicago,Wilson has shaped one of the mostpopular biology courses in the College,"The Brain: Perception and Behavior."Created by Wilson more than adozen years ago, the course offers arich mixture of information on how thebrain informs nerves, language, hearing, learning, memory, behavior, and,of course, vision. "One of the big inducements for me to develop thecourse was that it forced me to learnabout aspects of brain function that Ireally had known very little about,"says Wilson. Because of the nature ofthe subject, "The Brain" has evolvedconsiderably in the more than a decadethat Wilson has taught the Collegecourse. "The background remainsroughly the same," he says, but "everyyear I drop a few things that I've decided are no longer interesting in favor ofa few new topics that are more timely."Wilson has taken only one formalbiology course himself, a "typical introductory biology course" as an undergraduate at Wesleyan University. Itbored him and he majored, instead, inphysical chemistry, and minored inphilosophy. In graduate school heworked concurrently on his Ph.D. inphysical chemistry and his master's degree in philosophy. But he went on topostdoctoral work in theoretical biology, concentrating on the workings ofthe brain, and, in particular, on vision.His research now incorporates thedifferent elements of an unorthodoxeducation. "What I really loved aboutphysics and chemistry was the way inwhich mathematics, a uniquely humaninvention, is so incredibly powerful atSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986organizing and predicting human phenomena in the world," he says. "Fromphilosophy I brought a fascinationwith the 'nature of the mind and senses.' What I've done is combine the loveof mathematics as a scientific tool witha fascination with the workings of thebrain or mind."Within the framework of his lectures Wilson alludes to incidental connections, both philosophical andmathematical, as a way of drawing inthe interests of his disparate students."The things we've been discussingsuggest a resolution to some problemsthat Kant was discussing," he might offer. Or, conversely, he might say, "forthose of you who know some mathematics, let me spend five minutes doing this."In his own research Wilson studieshuman form vision. He asks humansubjects to determine the differencesbetween very similar abstract patterns.Then, based on his observations, hecreates mathematical models that canpredict those responses. He and his research staff are "well on our way to aworking model of human form vision,"he says. They have developed techniques to characterize what they believe are different classes of cells in thevisual part of the brain. "Roughlyspeaking," he says, "we can say thisgroup of cells will pick out fine detail,but will miss the context. This othergroup of cells will check out the visualdetail. There's a division of labor."Their model, as well as characterizingaccurate sight, can simulate certain defects in human vision, such as amblyopia, or lazy eye.Wilson worries over how few lectures he is able to fit into the one-quarter course. But the fact that heteaches "The Brain" only one quarter ayear allows him to bring to his class a"sense of freshness and novelty.""Teaching well is extremely importantto me," he says, recalling that at Wes-leyan he had an unusually high number of extraordinarily gifted teachers."In some sense I've tried to repay themfor the excitement of discovery they inculcated in me, and the love of learningthat they helped nurture in me," hesays. He works to make every lecturewell-organized, "building on whatstudents have learned before," and Hugh Wilsonpresents each with a mixture of liveliness, intensity, and humor. "He was areal good lecturer," says Krishna Ra-manujan, a sophomore in the College."He wasn't the kind of lecturer whowould just stand there and teach. Hehad a pretty good sense of humor, andhe used it.""What I've done iscombine the love ofmathematics as ascientific tool with afascination with theworkings of the brainor mind."Wilson sees teaching as a naturalcomplement to research. "If you spendlarge blocks of time doing researchyou're more or less sitting alone at thecomputer," he says. "The rewards ofthat are always very delayed. Teaching,on the other hand, gives you directcontact with people. I know that, to acertain extent, I'm going to have an im pact on the way a number of studentsin this course are going to think aboutthemselves, and about the nature ofhuman thought."As Lisa Crone draws her class offourth-year Russian to a closeon a grey Friday afternoon, thesmall room in Foster Hall is full oflaughter. The jokes are all in Russianbut the good humor, easy to understand, is evidence of the rapport students say they feel with Crone. "Verysupportive," "very helpful," and"very enthusiastic" is how they describe the associate professor of Slaviclanguages and literatures. "You reallywant to work hard for her," says Shannon Mudd, a graduate student in economics.Crone calls herself a "traditional"teacher, who emphasizes repetition,memorization, drilling. She was trained, ironically, to be a teacher of literature, not language, and notes, wryly,that that may be the reason she uses"antiquated" techniques. She is a literary scholar whose first book, Rozanovand the End of Literature (Jal-Verlag), waspublished in 1978. Her second, City ofthe Buried Sun: The Petersburg of the Wordin Twentieth-Century Russian Letterswhich explores symbols associatedwith what's now known as Leningrad,will be published next year.17Lisa CroneIn the Soviet Union "people have akind of cultural amnesia," she says, inreference to her speciality, the great Silver Age of Russian literature thatflourished at the turn of this century."The literary culture of that time is sortof a secret. Partly because the Sovietspretended for a long time it didn't exist,"she says. "The reason I study symbolismand acmeism is because a Westerner hasjust as good a chance at knowing the fullpicture as does a Soviet."She is an American who immersedherself in Russian. "I sort of fell in lovewith the whole thing," she says, beginning with her undergraduate work atGoucher College. "I lived in a Russian-speaking family for five years. Somehow, from a very young age, I identified myself with Russia. I didn't juststudy it. I got involved in the culture."The result is that when she speaks Russian she can be mistaken for a native."Spy-quality Russian," someone oncecalled it. The result, she thinks, makesstudents say, "well, if she could do itwhy couldn't I?" Russians, she says,often feel "their language is too hard tolearn. I try to project, rather, a beliefthat if people really want to and try,thev can."But it is difficult. By the third yearof Russian most of her students, manyof whom have studied other WesternEuropean languages, imagine that"they're going to have much greaterfluency and a much easier time reading." instead, seventy percent of the vocabulary remains unrecognizableand a great deal of new grammar has tobe mastered. "They're frustrated because they can't just pick up Tolstoyand read it," she says. "It's a time whenwe lose some of them. The teacher hasto encourage them to hang on somehow." That Crone does so, and withsuccess, is apparent from what her students say."The reason I studysymbolism andacmeism is because aWesterner has just asgood a chance atknowing the fullpicture, as doesa Soviet.""I went through something mythird year where I was just doing reallybadly," says Leslie LaRocco, a seniormajoring in Slavic languages and literatures, who recently returned fromLeningrad. "She came up to me and said, 'What's going on?' Part of it wasthe third-year hump she talks aboutand part of it was my personal life. It'snot often that a professor will actuallyseek you out and say, 'Why did yourgrade go down?' And really offer tohelp get it back up."What Crone finds most difficultabout teaching is being "responsiblefor the results." If a class fails a test"you can't just decide that there'ssomething wrong with them, thatthey're all stupid. Especially here. Orthat none of them studied," she says.When she began teaching Russian shewas too demanding, she says, andwhen she readjusted, she worried thatshe had become too lax. "You have totailor a language course," she says, "tothe needs of a particular group."When Crone came to the University in 1977 her students showed a predilection for reading Pushkin, Dostoy-evsky and Tolstoy. Now they often"want to read Soviet journals, or articles out of Soviet newspapers, if onlyfor the political conclusions they candraw from them," Crone says. "Maybethis has to do with the fact that they realistically contemplate visiting there."Crone estimates that thirty-five to forty percent of College students in third-and fourth-year Russian go to the Soviet Union, on one of two exchange programs. "It has enlivened our Russianprogram," she says. "The whole moodis different when there are people whohave just come back or who are aboutto go."Her own interest in learning Russian was sparked, in part, by thelaunching of the Soviet satellite Sputnik, in 1957 It was at the end of undergraduate school that she was drawn toRussian literature. She went on to receive a master's degree in Russian language and literature and a Ph.D. inSlavic languages and literatures, bothfrom Harvard University. But Russianis not the only language Crone knows.She speaks Ukranian, Italian, Spanish,and French; she reads German, Serbo-Croatian, and Latin; and, she has begun studying Greek. "I haven't madeas much progess as I would like to,"she says of the latter. "I think I may endup taking a course. I do stand by theprinciple that teachers have to keepputting themselves in the situation ofknowing nothing." •18 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986THE HAZARDOUS PATH™ HALLEY'SCollecting Cosmic Dust Is Simple,Compared To Mastering theMaze of International Politics^Wohn Simpson's comet dust analyzers, now speeding toward Halley'sComet aboard two Soviet spacecraft,may have an easier time making theirway through outer space than their creator had placing them there.Perhaps that should have been expected. Simpson, the Arthur HollyCompton Distinguished Service Professor of Physics, has sent his experiments into space aboard interplanetary spacecraft of the Soviet Union at atime when official collaboration withthe Soviets is impossible, even for theNational Aeronautics and Space Administration. (President Ronald Reaganchose not to renew the spacecooperationagreement with the Soviets in 1982.)The historic project was made possible by Simpson's discovery of a newway to study the dust from comets, andby his willingness to put science beforepolitical differences."It's been a basic belief of mine thatwhen nations are at odds with eachother officially, it's very important to keep intellectual channels open," saidSimpson. "It's a way to make sure thatthere's no misunderstanding about thereal meaning of what the goals of eachnation are."This is what I call the political legacy of the International GeophysicalYear (IGY), which took place in 1957-58.We worked together with Russiansthen on scientific projects. Even during a Cold War, you can cooperate."The end result of this modern cooperation is that when the best-knowncomet returns to the inner solar systemnext spring— as it does every 75 years—U.S. experiments will be there to studyit, courtesy of two Soviet spacecraft onwhich they hitched an interplanetaryride.The story began in 1983, when Simpson invented a new way of measuringspeeding atomic nuclei. When these nuclei come from outer space they arecalled cosmic rays, and Simpson hasspent most of his career studying suchparticles. When Simpson realized that the new device he had invented couldalso measure particles as large as dustgrains, he realized it might be used tostudy the vast clouds of primordial dustthat surround comets."We realized almost immediatelythat we had the prime experiment forHalley's Comet," he said. But Simpson'stiming was wrong. The United Stateshad chosen not to send a spacecraft toHalley, and the Soviet, European, andJapanese Halley spacecraft were almostready for launch. The experiments onthose spacecraft had been chosen asmuch as four years earlier.In the hope that the EuropeanSpace Agency (ESA) might have roomfor an extra experiment, Simpson traveled to Holland to describe his invention to the scientists in charge of theESA mission to Halley."It was just a chalkboard talk," hesaid. "I'd never built the device. I justsaid, 'It's obvious you can do this.'There was general enthusiasm aboutthe invention, but nobody was willing19B$**£>-Halley's Linnet can he seen slightly off-center, to the right. The photo was lake it by kale Cudworth, associate professor astronomy and astrophysics.to give up his room on the spacecraft. Itwas a bittersweet situation. We had animportant invention but no way tomake use of it."Unknown to Simpson, a representative of the Soviet project to Halley'sComet was in the audience, busily taking notes."1 returned to Chicago in the tall tobegin teaching Physics 121 for the undergraduates," he continued. "Sixweeks later, a telegram arrived fromthe Space Research Institute in Moscow. It said, 'We accept your experiments to Halley's comet. How soon canyou be in Moscow?' It was an incredible thing, but there it was. So, based onone talk, and one telegram, we werestarted . "The first thing I did was to phonemy friend Walter Blum, (AB'39, JD'4I,the Edward H. Levi DistinguishedService Professor in the Law School),to ask if there are laws against myworking with the Russian scientists. Ilearned that there's a giant book listingwhat you can't do, what you can'ttransfer in technology. I had to getaround this problem of technologytransfer. 1 was not willing to do anything that would embarrass our government or the University. So 1 askedmy laboratory staff here in Chicago tobegin designing the electronics technology backward a whole generation,so we could use older components thatcould be found in any country. Westarted that work in November, 1983, on the gamble that we would win."Then I informed the University asto what I was doing, so that therewould not someday be a crazy headlinein one of the papers that would read'University of Chicago Aids Reds' andthe University wouldn't know whatthe heck it was about."Simpson then began the delicateprocess of political negotiations. "Iwrote a letter to George Keyworth,then President Reagan's science advisor, and to Kenneth Dam, (JD'57 former provost of the University), whowas then deputy secretary of state. Itold them about the Soviet offer andsaid that the science, which would beexcellent, could only be done utilizinga Soviet spacecraft, because the U.S.20 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986chose not to send a mission to Halley'sComet. I explained that the missionwould give us advance knowledge ofhow we should design our own spacecraft in the future, to deal with the hazards of dust. But I also pointed out thatI thought there was a hidden messagefrom the Soviets. They didn't send methis telegram just out of the kindness oftheir hearts. There must be somethingthey want out of the mission, too. Myphilosophy is that anytime there issomething that each side wants, we'vegot something about which to negotiate ."When I consulted NASA aboutfunding the project, the person incharge was very understanding,"Simpson said. "But because PresidentReagan had not renewed the space cooperation agreement with the Soviets,he saw no way to do it. I asked if I madean arrangement between the University of Chicago and the Soviet SpaceResearch Institute would they pay forit, and he said yes."Then the White House turned itover to the State Department, whichset up an interagency study group, andat that point, I thought the mission wassurely dead. We lost three weeks justbecause of the Grenada affair— theywere all absorbed in it. Fortunately, thestudy group was led by a space buff,who was really excited about the wholething."Finally, just before Christmas,1983, 1 appeared at the State Departmentto defend the project before representatives from NASA, the Department ofDefense, the State Department, and theWhite House. I was able to persuade theDepartment of Defense that the missionwas acceptable when I showed them theparts list, and demonstrated that I couldbuy any of the parts in Germany, England, Japan, Hong Kong— almost anywhere. There wasn't anything high techin the project that they could object to. Iworked out an agreement with them,and walked out of there with what Ineeded."Simpson was finally ready for atrip to Moscow to meet his Sovietcounterparts. But political events onceagain intruded."Just as we were preparing togo, Yuri Andropov died," recalledSimpson. "To avoid political delays, we agreed to meet instead in Budapest,at the Hungarian Central ResearchInstitute."Now the Soviets could not dare towrite a protocol that said they weretaking an experiment from the UnitedStates. And I can't sign an agreementwith the Russians; it's against U.S. law.So I agreed to deliver to a third party,one of Germany's Max Planck Institutes, certain instruments and services. The Soviets agreed to receivecertain instruments and services fromthe Max Planck Institute. So it was alldone very systematically and legally,just as if we were negotiating a treatyon missiles, or something like that.Having settled all that, the Soviets" When nations areat odds with eachother officially, it'svery important tokeep intellectualchannels open/7said, 'O.K., now let's talk.' The Germans and Hungarians left, and I dealtdirectly with the leading Soviet spacescientists for the Vega missions. Toback them up, there was a team standing by in Moscow who could answerquestions, if they couldn't answerthem."I had my people with me, too—there were three of us. And I had alsobrought my drawing board and calculator, so I could sit up at night and design the instrument, as I went along."Next, the two teams negotiatedhow the comet dust analyzer was goingto go on a spacecraft that was alreadybuilt, and on which all the space had already been taken by other instruments. One of the problems they facedwas how to handle the telemetry. "Myinstrument speaks in digital words,"explained Simpson, "and the signalshave to go into a computer that then sends them through a transmissionsystem to earth. The Soviets have amethod of encoding in computer software that is totally different from ours.They use hexadecimal Cyrillic, whichwe would have to learn, in order to design an instrument that would be ableto speak to Russian spacecraft. Wewere taking on a whole language problem that is not even related to talking."We finally agreed on where theycould mount our instrument on thetwo space probes. But the next response came from the engineeringteam in Moscow. They said 'No way.We're not going to drill holes in ourspacecraft.' You see, they were fouryears downstream, and ready to launchin just ten months. So we were all veryglum .But when we came in the next day,the Soviets were all smiles. Apparentlyin Moscow they had these two teams debating each other, as to whether theywould include our experiment. The scientists won, and the engineers had toget out their drills and start tearing intothe spacecraft. That sort of thing happens here, too, anywhere you have scientists and engineers."We also agreed that our staffcould supervise the mounting of ourexperiment on their spacecraft. Thisprivilege had never before been givento U.S. scientists. Because there wereonly ten months to launch, they sent aman with their computer, the interfaceand command system, to Chicago, sowe could design our test equipment intheir codes. That's the first time anyhardware of this type has been shippedfrom the Soviet Union to the UnitedStates." (Simpson has placed theequipment, with a model of his cometdust analyzer, on display in the Ker-sten Physics Teaching Center.)Simpson and his small team left forChicago, having promised to arrive inMoscow on May 7. The Soviets hopedthat by then the Chicago group mightbe able to build a simulation of the interface between the dust detectors andtheir spacecraft."Now, there's a fantastic group ofabout eleven people here in my laboratories," said Simpson. "This littlegroup, and a slightly larger group beforeit have put up for me more than twenty-eight successful space missions. We21were on the first spacecraft to Mercury,Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. And we builtthe first instruments to land on themoon. I want especially to mention Anthony J. Tuzzolino, (SM'55, PhD'57),senior research associate, and MurryA. Perkins, senior electronics engineer, both at the Enrico Fermi Institute, who are my collaborators here inChicago, and R.Z. Sageev and LeonidKsanfomality at the Space Research Institutes in Moscow. For the Halley project, we had to scour the country forparts on very short notice. Some companies were so taken by the idea of thecomet mission they just gave us thestuff. Even large companies, like RCA,dipped into high priority parts for us."We worked almost around theclock designing and building," Simpsoncontinued. "It was an unbelievable effort, but we arrived in Moscow tenweeks later with an operational instrument that fit on their spacecraft. Theywere astonished."They were terribly impressed thatwe could come up with this in such ashort time. Some of them asked howbig a laboratory we had. When we saidour lab crew consisted of ten or elevenpeople, they absolutely wouldn't believe it. They said, 'You must have hadthe instrument in the closet.' But sincethere was a representative of the Soviets here for a month, with their computer, he saw our people building theflight units, and when he came back,he confirmed it. Otherwise, they justwouldn't believe what our little grouphad accomplished."We delivered three flight unitsthrough the summer and we collaborated on the testing and the delivery. InDecember, 1984, four hours after thefirst launch, the call came from Moscow, 'All good, go.' That's really serviceto get a response like that."Halley's Comet will loop aroundthe sun in the direction opposite that ofthe planets and of the spacecraft hurtling to meet it. The comet and spacecraft therefore meet at a relative velocity of approximately 55,000 miles perhour."As the comet comes roaring backout from being heated behind the sun,"Simpson said, "we will zip across thecomet right through the dense dust.That will be on March 6 and 9. "The whole mission will be over in400 seconds. It's traveling so fast, thisrocket encounter would take us fromChicago to Grand Rapids in one andone-tenth seconds. And you've got tocollect data that fast. It's a newballgame."In addition to collecting scientificinformation on comet dust, the Chicago instruments will play an importantrole in helping other spacecraft in setting their trajectories on their way toHalley."It was abittersweetsituation. We hadan importantinvention andno way to makeuse of it.""We'll be the first to touch the com-etary dust," explained Simpson."That's why the Soviets were so intenton our experiment. No one knowswhether the spacecraft can survive, orwhether it will get chewed up in thedust. If the spacecraft stops transmitting part way through, they want toknow how much dust killed it. Withtheir second spacecraft coming threedays later, they will have to make a decision. Tentatively, it's going to go inmuch closer, to ten times the dust levelof the first spacecraft, but if the firstone is killed, they're going to redirect itoutward."We're also the pathfinder for a later mission. The West Europeans are relying on us when they go by the cometa week later with Giotto. They'll wantto know what's safe for them."Does Simpson feel any ambivalence about cooperating with a foreigngovernment that some people considerto be an adversary?"When our country is in trouble,we help it out," he said. "The University of Chicago was very active in bothWorld War I and World War II, and in the Korean War, doing research for theU.S. government. But when there isn'ta dire emergency, we're absolutelydedicated to being a free group."For a piece of high tech space hardware, Simpson's comet dust analyzeris almost unbelievably resilient."Our instrument is incredibly rugged," he said. "It has a survivabilitythat far exceeds any of the other dustexperiments they have on board. Evenif you took a ballpoint pen and justjammed it into it, or started stabbing itwith a knife, it would still work. It alsohas great range. It can measure individual dust particles as small as a ten-thousandth of a billionth of a gram, orit can handle any blast that will come toit. And it can count particles coming inat 50,000 a second with no problem."The Chicago comet dust analyzers,at this writing, have already traveledapproximately 600 million miles sincetheir launch eleven months ago, andthey have approximately 150 millionmiles to travel before their meeting inspace with Comet Halley, but theyhave hardly been idle."We're taking advantage of a circumnavigation of the solar system,"Simpson said. "We're already gettinggood data. I've proposed to the Sovietsthat we search for the dusty shadowsof former comets, and they like theidea. Nobody knows yet whether theyexist, whether the orbits of comets arefilled with dust or not. I've given theproblem to one of my graduate students for his thesis. By the time we getcompleted, he'll have a year of data noone else in the world has."To get clearance from U.S. agencies, Simpson had to agree to build hisinstrument as a sealed, self-containedunit.Finally, Simpson had one morehurdle to clear. As we went to press,officials said, yes, he could take anAmerican-made personal computeralong to Moscow, on which to receivedata from the comet dust analyzer, as itkeeps its rendezvous with Halley. •Larry Arbeiter, science writer for theUniversity Office of News and Information,contributed to the writing of this article.22 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 19860it^ The 1986<**?$ University Alumni** Directory Questionnaire1 .

A rack on which tohang one's coffee mug, which will befilled for a quarter no matter the size, attests to the shop's hominess.

THE C-SHOP The C-Shop (the letter is short for Chicago) has occupiedthe niche next to Hutchinson Commons since 1903 when Hutchinsonwas built. Recently, an alumna peered intothe shop after a 35-year absence and said, simply: "Well, it hasn't changed at all." In1982 Morry's Deli took over the concessionfor both the Commons and the C-Shop andturned the western end of the latter into aglass and tile ice-cream and snack shop.25IDA'S CAFE Originally part of the cafeteriawhen Ida Noyes Hall was built in 1916, Ida'sCafe is now a coffee shop which offers sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, and desserts. It's busiest at thenoon-hour, when students from U-High swell the ranks.Patrons like to take their lunch into the lounge next-door,where they can watch soap operas on TV.COBB COFFEE SHOP Located in the basement ofCobb Hall, this is one of three tiny coffee shops run bythe Student Activities Organization (SAO). Menustend to be minimal: doughnuts, sweet rolls, bagels,potato chips, plus an assortment of teas and coffee.Cobb, with its institutional lighting and vinyl-covered furniture, offers the least in the way of ambience, yet it's a popular place to pick up coffee before classor retreat with a book.26rHE GSB The Stuart Hall Cafe in the basementjf the Graduate School of Business featuressandwiches and salads served adjacent to aroom carpeted in grey flannel and overflowingwith future young executives.

Levi DistinguishedService Professorship has beencreated in honor of the former president of the University and U.S. attorney general.President Hanna Gray announcedthat Walter Blum, AB'39, JD'41, authority on federal taxation and corporate reorganization, will be appointedto the chair. Blum currently is theWilson-Dickinson Professor in theLaw School.The chair was created by an anonymous gift from a University trustee inrecognition of Levi, PhB'32, JD'35, amember of the faculty since 1936 whoalso served as dean of the Law Schooland provost of the University beforebecoming president in 1968.Levi, the Glen A. Lloyd Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, isone of the nation's foremost authorities on jurisprudence and antitrustlaw."Edward Levi's exemplary qualities and accomplishments haveshaped our University," Gray said."This professorship recognizes a distinguished alumnus, educated andtrained at Chicago; a scholar andmember of the faculty who has madeenduring contributions to knowledgein his field; a great dean, provost, andUniversity president; and a citizen ofthis community and the world who setstandards for all of us."We share the donor's admirationof Edward Levi's accomplishments,and I am personally grateful for histhoughtfulness in establishing thisprofessorship and asking that it benamed for Mr. Levi."I am also pleased that WalterBlum has accepted appointment to thechair, for he carries on the tradition ofhis colleague and friend," Gray said.After graduating from the LawSchool, Levi earned a J.S.D. from YaleUniversity, then returned to Chicagoto join the Law School faculty in 1936.From 1950 to 1962, Levi was deanof the Law School. He was namedprovost of the University in 1962 and Walter Blumserved in that capacity until 1968,when he became the eighth presidentof the University, succeeding GeorgeBeadle. In 1965 Levi also served asacting dean of the College.President Gerald Ford named Leviattorney general in 1975. Levi returnedto the University in 1977 to teach in theLaw School, the Committee on SocialThought, and the College.Levi has published more than 100books and articles on jurisprudence,legal education, higher education, andresearch in related areas.Like Levi, Blum is a native of Chicago. He is also a graduate of University High School. One of his first professors in the Law School was Levi.From 1941 to 1943 Blum worked inthe federal Office of Price Administration's general counsel's office. Heserved in the armed forces from 1943to 1946.Blum joined the Law School faculty as assistant professor in 1946 andwas promoted to professor in 1953.

O'Connell, AM'47, whohas served as vice-president since 1973and dean of students in the Universitysince 1967, will retire at the end of theacademic year.President Hanna Gray, in announcing O'Connell's decision toretire at the end of his current term,said, "Chuck O'Connell has contributed a spectacular period of service toour University. I have asked him andhe has agreed to spend about half ofeach year on various assignments forthe University after June of 1986."It is hard to think of this University without Chuck O'Connell's presence. He has been the preeminentdean of students in the country, and hehas provided me and my predecessorswith advice and guidance on everykey issue affecting admissions andaid, student life, and related areas thathave determined the policies of theUniversity and fashioned the kind ofplace it is today and will be in the future. The University has seen, underhis leadership, significant developments for student life and studentservices, from the residential systemto the flourishing athletic departmentwe enjoy today."Gray said that she and Provost30 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986Charles D. O'ConnellNorman Bradburn, AB'52, intend toundertake a review of all the functionswithin the office of the dean of students in the University and to reviewalso the relationship of that office tothose of the deans of students in theCollege, and the graduate divisions.As dean of students in the University, O'Connell coordinates the workof the eleven deans of students withresponsibilities for the specific academic areas: the College, the graduatedivisions, and the professionalschools. He is responsible for suchUniversity-wide administrative services as on-campus student housing,which includes the programs in theresidence halls, food services, andhousekeeping; career counseling andplacement; the University registrar;the Student Activities Office; the Department of Physical Education andAthletics, which includes intercollegiate, intramural, and recreationalsports; and the Office of OfficialPublications.In addition, O'Connell has beenresponsible since 1982 for the Office ofUniversity Alumni Relations, and hasoverseen publication of the Universityof Chicago Magazine. An associate professor in the Humanities Collegiate Division, O'Connell received his M. A. from the University in English in 1947 and pursueddoctoral studies here from 1947 to1950. He received his undergraduatedegree from the University of Toronto.O'Connell first taught atRoosevelt University and then joinedthe faculty of Creighton University in1950. He became assistant director ofadmissions at the University in 1952and director in 1957 From 1959 to 1970,he served as secretary of the faculties.Looking back on his years at theUniversity, O'Connell said: "It's beena wonderful thirty-three years, working on this campus. I've been veryfortunate in my assignments, and Ihave enjoyed all of them."O'Connell will take a six-monthleave, starting July 1. When he returnsfrom leave he looks forward to working on special projects. "I want to seeIda Noyes Hall renovated and restoredto its former elegance," he said, "and Iwant to see an Olympic-size swimming pool on this campus by the timewe celebrate the Centennial."O'Connell and his wife, the former Margaret Norheim, PhD'62, planto spend time traveling, in betweenhis assignments on special projects.SCIENTISTS' PETITIONOPPOSES "STAR WARS"Faculty members in the University's science departments are circulating a petition that opposes PresidentRonald Reagan's Strategic DefenseInitiative, often referred to as "StarWars," calling the plan for a space-based missile shield "ill-conceivedand dangerous." Thomas Rosenbaum,assistant professor in the physics department and the James Franck Institute, one of several scientists coordinating the petition drive, said "Themajor point of the petition is to dispelthe notion that scientists as a groupare right behind the Reagan administration's vision of S.D.I."At this writing, thirty-two of theforty-five members of the physics department who are active in researchhave signed the petition, includingNobel Prize winners James Cronin,SM'53, PhD'55, and S. Chandra-sekhar. "Almost everybody whosigned it could be a potential recipient" of S.D.I, funding, said Rosenbaum. The petition drive at the University is part of a nationwide effort byphysicists to voice their opposition tothe "Star Wars" program. More thanhalf the faculty in the nation's fourteentop-ranked university physics departments have signed the petition todate. The national total, which standsat 2,100 faculty members and 1,680graduate students, includes a dozenNobel laureates and the president ofthe American Physical Society.Those who sign, pledging "neitherto solicit nor accept S.D.I, funds," do sofor a variety of reasons. Many havechosen not to apply for S.D.I, fundingbecause they fear their research, atsome point, may be declared classified.Others are concerned that the largeamount of money allocated by the government for "Star Wars" may inhibitother kinds of research. Some scientists, arguing on technologicalgrounds, say the plan simply won'twork. Many have political objections.The Reagan administration hasdismissed as unfounded the concernthat research for S.D.I, will be subjectto publication controls. But Rosenbaum, and other scientists, say thatthe issue is not so clear-cut. "There's aproblem with 'Star Wars' in that theintent is to develop weapons, i.e. todevelop a classified program. There isalways a threat when you accept government money that something will beclassified. That danger, concerningS.D.I, research, is qualitatively different than in most basic researchsponsored by the military," said Rosenbaum. "They say, 'If it becomesclassified we'll just pick it up and haveit done in a government laboratory.'That's nonsense. You can't just translate knowledge."The University has no formal policy regarding S.D.I, funding, but itsArticles of Incorporation expresslyprotect the right of faculty to freely31CHICAGO m 1QUR.NALpublish their work. "The Universityhas a policy which says we will notaccept grants or contracts that putrestrictions on the publication of theresults of the research" said WalterMassey, vice-president for researchand for Argonne National Laboratory,"Other than that, if the research generally fits within the nature of thingsthat the University authorizes, it'sreally the decision of individual faculty members."Rosenbaum and others, however,say that in S.D.I, research the distinction between classified and unclassified work is blurred. The government,for example, has not ruled out thepossibility of regulating what are commonly called "pre-prints," Rosenbaum said. These prepublication accounts of research sent to colleaguesaround the world are, he said, "a really important aspect of keeping theresearch going." Control over them is"not strict classification, yet you canalready see the trends. They're clearlyinterested in classifying everything."Massey, who heads the University'sResearch Council, agrees that theexistence of so-called "beige areas" isan issue. "It's no longer that researchis classified or unclassified," he said."There are areas that are unclear." Atthe Council's first fall quarter meetingon November 20 the group, whichincludes faculty members from alldivisions, began what he calls an "ongoing" discussion of how the University should handle research projectsthat have the potential of becomingrestricted.Massey, who calls the issue ofclassification for S.D.I, research something of a "red herring," says there isno doubt in his mind that "sooner orlater" some of it will be restricted."One will just have to monitor that,"he said. "The larger danger is thatputting a disproportionate amount ofmoney into one area tends to channeland focus research in a particular direction." That direction, he says, echoing the concern of other scientists, maynot be best for research in particulardisciplines or for the nation as awhole. "To the degree that there'smore money going to agencies thathave directed research rather thanagencies that respond to unsolicited proposals, it can tend to distort thedirection of free inquiry."The suggested endorsement byuniversities who accept S.D.I, fundsof the administration's plan for "StarWars" is another concern of somescientists. This summer the presidentof the California Institute of Technology, Marvin Goldberger, PhD'48,among other university heads, protested the administration calling someuniversities "participating institutions" in S.D.I, research because individual faculty researchers were involved. "I totally agree with thosepresidents," said Massey. The University would "object strongly" if it wereput in a similar situation, he said."What individual faculty members dois another story." The petition, however, states that "participation in S.D.I.by individual University of Chicagoresearchers would lend the University's name to a program of dubiousscientific validity."The foremost concern expressed inthe petition is that S.D.I, won't work."Anti-ballistic missile defense that iseffective and reliable enough to defend the population of the UnitedStates against a Soviet attack is nottechnically feasible," it reads. Effortsto construct such a defense, it says,will only "include a build-up of offensive missiles by the Soviet Union,jeopardize existing arms controlagreements, (and) stalemate currentstrategic negotiations," consequentlyaccelerating the nuclear arms race andundermining international security"They're talking about a system whichyou can never really try until (an attack) happens," said Sidney Nagel,professor in the physics departmentand the James Franck Institute, andanother coordinator of the drive. Na-gel's other objections to S.D.I, includethe expense of constructing it andthe system's vulnerability once itis in place.For many scientists political objections to S.D.I, are closely intertwinedwith the technological argumentsagainst it. "Technically, the objection Ihave," said Rosenbaum, "and thismixes in a little with politics, is thatS.D.I, has been advertised to theAmerican public as a shield against allnuclear weapons. If that were possible that would be wonderful thing. However, if you talk to any of Reagan'sadvisors and listen to their statements,they all acknowledge that S.D.I, willnever protect population centers. Infact, it's main use will be to protectmissiles. Technically, you might bejust as successful protecting yourmissiles using a ground base defense."John Bechhoefer, SM'85, a doctoralcandidate in the physics departmentalso coordinating the petition drive,says S.D.I, is being misrepresented tothe public. "Since this will be built byscientists and engineers," he said, "Iresented being counted implicitlyamong the people who were givingthis view to the public. I thought thatwas not honest. I thought it would beappropriate to have a statement byphysicists and other scientists thatshowed that not everyone supportsthe program."The issue of S.D.I, funding has thepotential, Massey says, to divide theacademic and the scientific community "and that can be very dangerous."But he stands by the University's neutrality. "In terms of to what ultimateuse the results of research will beput — that's a never-ending argument,"he said. "That's not something onwhich the University as an institutioncan have a policy." What the University can do is allow for disagreementwithin its community, he said. "Wedon't try to coerce people either toaccept or not accept research-supportfrom any source, as long as it's not inviolation of our policy, and we respectother people's decisions to follow onecourse or the other."DIVESTMENT TEACH-INDRAWS 500 TO DEBATEThe most well-attended event ofthe "Teach-In On South Africa andApartheid" at the University on October 22, was the debate on Universitydivestment between President HannaGray and Jennifer Davis, executivedirector of the American Committeeon Africa, an organization founded in1953 to support African civil rights.More than 500 students and facultycrowded into a Kent Hall auditoriumto hear arguments in favor of and32 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986Part of the crowd at a rally on the main quadrangle which opened a "Teach-In on South Africa "on campus.against divesting in firms that do business in South Africa, in order to convince the white minority governmentthere to abolish apartheid."Our argument is, I think, not inany sense over the evils of the systemof apartheid in South Africa," saidGray, during a twenty-minute speech,in which she argued against divestment. "Our central argument has todo with the role of the University. Thequestion is whether it is appropriatefor the University to take politicalaction and to endorse a particularstrategy. I do not believe that the University should be the surrogate for ourtaking action as individuals in thepublic forum."Davis, who had urged the University to divest five years ago, said, "Itupsets me deeply that this issue is stillbeing debated here. There aren't, Ithink, any new arguments. What thereis since I was here last time is a greatdeal of history. And the history isbloody. I don't think we are arguingabout tactics. I think that what wehave come to argue about now is ourresponsibility for people's lives. And Ithink the evidence is clear— therearen't two ways to the same end."The teach-in, introduced by a rallyon the main quadrangles, includedworkshops on the history of apartheidand opposition to it, apartheid and its relationship to racism in other parts ofthe world, and strategies for overcoming apartheid in South Africa. Anindoor rally in Kent Hall and a paneldiscussion followed the debate between Gray and Davis.The groups that sponsored theteach-in included Faculty for Divestment from South Africa, the Anti-Apartheid Student Alliance, the ActionCommittee for a Free South Africa, theBlack Graduate Forum, the Organization of Black Students, the Third WorldPolitical Forum, the Women's Union,and Teamsters Local 743. Studentgroups had sponsored an October 11rally on the main quadrangles, whichended with the burning of mock SouthAfrican passbooks and marked theclose of a three-day hunger strike fordivestment by six University students.That rally was preceded by a "WomenUnder Apartheid" exhibit in Ida NoyesHall. Students also sponsored the"Midwest Student Conference AgainstApartheid and Racism" at the University on November 16 and 17Davis, whose speech received astanding ovation from more than halfthe audience, said, "South Africanliberation will not come from divestment but it will be supported andassisted by it." American companies inSouth Africa are engaged in "verycritical" areas of the South African economy, she said, citing their majorinvolvement in the computer, oil, andmotor industries. "All of those sectorsare clearly very important for the survival of a state which is seeking tocontrol a big population which doesnot want to be controlled," she said."There is no time left for things likethe Sullivan principles (which call forequality in the workplace), what weneed is short, sharp action to bring theSouth African government to its senses," she said, quoting Bishop Desmond Tutu, the black South AfricanNobel laureate."Let me remind you that under theSullivan code signatory companiescan get a top ranking even if they sellcomputers for military equipment,even if they pay taxes to the SouthAfrican government." The principles,she said, were drawn up with theconsent of the South African government in response to pressure fromdivestment campaigns in the UnitedStates. "I think that the whole historyof South Africa in the last two hundred years shows that the development of segregation goes along withindustrialization, with the flow intothe country of foreign capital."President Hanna Gray speaks during theapartheid teach-in.33The University trustees, Grayargued, "have felt that to remainshareholders in corporations, votingproxies on a case-by-case basis in order to influence the conduct of companies, is a more responsible act ontheir part than automatically to withdraw." The University policy is toinvest in companies that abide by,although they may not have signed,the Sullivan principles, Gray said. Thetrustee policy, she said, has been toconsider " selective divestment" if theUniversity does not approve of how aparticular company carries out itsbusiness in South Africa. "There arecosts related to total divestment," shesaid. "There would be costs, I believe,to the essential autonomy of theinstitution."The University's mission, she said,is to educate, to inquire, and to discover, and she suggested the University"attempt to engage with groups inSouth Africa, with South Africanuniversities, with individuals in everyway possible to help in the educationalprocess, which will be another of theimportant conditions for a viable andhealthy majority society and democratic society in South Africa." Grayreferred to a then-recent meeting witheleven university and two foundationpresidents, the vice-chancellor of theUniversity of Cape Town, and the vice-chancellor designate of the Universityof the Western Cape. The group,which included the heads of Harvard,Yale, and Stanford universities, signeda statement saying they are committedto "long-term partnerships withSouth African universities and organizations that share a dedication to anon-racial democratic society in SouthAfrica."All of the questions from the audience that followed the remarks byDavis and Gray were addressed to thepresident, and each focused on theeffectiveness of the University's policyon divestment. "Can you point to anyevidence of change that the Universityhas brought about which would justify the continuing investment of theUniversity in companies which support South Africa?" asked one member of the audience. Gray replied that"voter proxies (in general) havehelped to contribute to a climate of Jennifer Davis, of the American Committeeon Africa, speaks at the apartheid teach-in.opinion that has helped encouragesuch steps" as bank loans beingstopped and companies moving out ofSouth Africa. Davis disagreed. "It isnot the ten or fifteen years of shareholder resolution that has impacted onbanks, for instance, deciding that theyweren't going to roll over loans. Therewere two elements in what did impact. One was the divestment campaign. Because you begin to talk abouthuge amounts of money that are goingto be moved. And I think the selectivepurchasing (boycotts) that are proposed in many cities are particularlypowerful in making banks and companies take notice." Davis added "It isunrealistic for us to expect U.S. corporations suddenly to lead the crusadefor social change. They don't do it hereand they're not going to do it in SouthAfrica."The last question a member of theaudience asked Gray was: "Would theargument be different if we changedthe word 'apartheid' to 'Nazi'?" Grayreplied: "I happen to come from anacademic family which left Germanyin the Nazi regime, and one of thethings I learned from my family andfrom the actions that they took was theimportance of the autonomy of universities, and the importance of maintaining the integrity of academic freedomin such institutions. The German universities knuckled under to an evilregime. They were in a situation andin a structure where they allowed thatto happen. My conviction about the importance of what is a very rare andfragile thing says to me: Do not politicize universities."ALUMNI RELATIONS VASTLYIMPROVED, CABINET TOLDSix years ago, when she took office, President Hanna Gray appointedan Ad Hoc Commission to review theUniversity's relations with its alumni.The task force came to be known as theSchultz Commission, named for itschairman, trustee Arthur Schultz,AB'67 After conducting a survey, theSchultz Commission presented Graywith a set of recommendations. Atits annual meeting in October, theNational Alumni Cabinet (which consists of the National Alumni FundBoard, the National Alumni SchoolsCommittee Board, and UniversityAlumni Club presidents) heard reports from members of the SchultzCommission on the implementation ofthe commission's recommendations.Most of those recommendations havebeen followed, the Cabinet learned."I think most of the Commission'srecommendations have, in fact, beenimplemented and probably implemented more successfully than any ofus could have hoped at the time," saidMichael Klowden, AB'67, president ofthe Alumni Association. Klowdenmade his remarks to the Cabinet at apanel discussion moderated bySchultz, on the progress of alumnirelations in the last six years.Among the changes which havebeen made, Klowden reported, havebeen a restructuring of the AlumniCabinet; a threefold increase in localalumni clubs, which now total thirty-one; the creation of a club in Chicago,where 28,000 alumni live; a significantincrease in the activities of local clubs,which sponsored more than a hundred programs last year; and a reorganization of the Cabinet ExecutiveCommittee. "Starting from groundzero there's been just tremendousprogress," he said. "However, not allhas been perfect." Coordination between different alumni groups andfunctions is still occasionally cumbersome, he said, and the structure of theCabinet may need to be rethought.34 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986"But the status of University alumnirelations is so vastly improved fromwhat it was six years ago that it almostboggles the mind."Alumni record-keeping six yearsago, said Schultz, "was a nightmare."William Haden, vice-president fordevelopment, reported that since thenthe University has set up a computerized data base on alumni records. TheUniversity invested $1.5 million for itsAlumni and Development DatabaseSystem, ADDS, to keep track of alumni and their gifts. ADDS is still beingrefined, Haden said, adding that "Ithink it's possible that we have builtthe best one in the country."Charles O'Connell, AM'47, vice-president and dean of students in theUniversity, reported that the administration has almost doubled the budgetof the Office of University AlumniRelations since the time of the commission's report. The Office of AlumniRelations offers several programs forstudents to encourage them to becomeactive alumni when they graduate.More than a dozen students are appointed to serve on the Alumni Cabinet. (The first International Universityof Chicago Day was planned in response to a suggestion from studentmembers of the Cabinet last year.) Inaddition, the Office of Alumni Relations annually sponsors a freshmanopen house and a series of senior dinners at Robie House. To help studentslearn about career and job opportunities, it sponsors "Life After Graduation" programs and "Career Conversations" with alumni.Randy Holgate, director of theAlumni Fund, reported that $3.46million was raised during the 1984-85year, slightly less than the $3.62million raised the year before. However, the number of donors to the Fundincreased to 18,956 in the last year, upfrom 18,880 the year before. She saidthat gifts of less than $1,000 reached anew record of $1.29 million, as compared with $1.14 million the year before. The President's Fund contributed$2.17 million to the Fund, which wasdown from the $2.44 million donatedlast year. The Parents' Fund set a newrecord, with contributions of $141,983,as compared with $109,000 the yearbefore. Approximately thirty-four percent of alumni from the Collegeand Divisions made gifts to the Alumni Fund last year; total contributionshave increased thirty percent in thelast five years. Volunteer participationhas also increased; annually, morethan 1,000 alumni volunteers aroundthe country help raise money for theFund.Dan Hall, dean of admissions in theCollege, reported on the activities ofthe Alumni Schools Committee, whosevolunteers help recruit students. Hereported that in 1984-85 alumni conducted 1,705 interviews with prospective College students. There are nowfifty-one Schools Committee groups,with a membership of 1,100, including177 new members who joined in 1985.Of these new members 150 are individual interviewers, meaning that theylive in areas where there are no formalcommittees. Members of the AlumniSchools Committee also staff tables atlocal high school College Nights.SYMPOSIUM HONORSEDWARD SHILSThe audience of more than twohundred perched on windowsills,leaned against door jambs, and crowded on the floor, below the angel-studded ceiling beams in Swift Lecture Hall, for the symposium onOctober 25 honoring Edward Shils,Distinguished Service Professor in thesociology department and the Committee on Social Thought, and anhonorary fellow of Peterhouse College, Cambridge University. The symposium honored Shils's seventy-fifthyear and his association of more thanfifty years with the University. The titleof the symposium, "The Authority ofIntellectual Enterprises and the Center," focused on a concept which Shilshas written about most of his life. Thatconcept, of the "center and periphery," suggests that thoughts about anygiven subject are informed by a centralcore of values and ideas."Shils's intellect has had a greatimpact on the pursuit of knowledge ina variety of fields," said Peggy Ram-persad, PhD '78, administrative assistant in the economics department, aformer student of Shils, and a member of the committee which organized thesymposium. The symposium's speakers, chosen because they "were familiar with his work and could talk abouttheir work in relationship to his,"were: Paul Oskar Kristeller, professoremeritus in the philosophy department at Columbia University, whospoke on "Current Problems of theUniversity and Humanistic Scholarship"; David Martin, professor in thesociology department of the LondonSchool of Economics and PoliticalScience, who explored "Belief andInquiry: Similarities and Differences"; and Frederick Tenbruck, professor in the sociology department atthe University of Tubingen, who examined "When Memory Fails: ScienceBetween the Progress of Knowledgeand the Loss of Authority."ALUMNI DIRECTORYTO BE PUBLISHEDThe first University-wide alumnidirectory to be published since 1973 isbeing compiled by the Office ofAlumni Relations, and will beavailable at the end of this year.The directory, more expansive thanpreviously published directories,will include an alphabetical listingof alumni with both residentialand business addresses, a sectionlisting alumni by geographical area,and a section listing alumni accordingto the school or division from whichthey graduated, with subdivisions forclass years or departments. The latteris new and has been created in order tohelp alumni find "the people theymost care about," said Carol Linne,AB'66, executive director of the Officeof Alumni Relations.The purpose of the directory is "toencourage alumni to contact theirfellow alumni, to make that easier, andto update records for the office,"Linne said. In February, alumni will bemailed a questionnaire, requestinginformation, together with an orderform for the directory. If you do notreceive a questionnaire and wish to beincluded in the directory, write theOffice of Alumni Relations, RobieHouse, 5757 S. Woodlawn Ave.,Chicago, IL, 60637CAMPAIGN UPDATE:ARTS AND SCIENCES,GSB, LAWThe Lucille R Markey CharitableTrust has made a gift of $8.7 million,one of the largest ever presented to theUniversity, to support programs inneurobiology and neuroimmunology.Of that gift, $6 million has been earmarked for the Campaign for the Artsand Sciences, raising the total for theCampaign to more than $86 million,well beyond half of its five-year goalof $150 million.Other recent gifts include $300,000for the College from the William andFlora Hewlett Foundation and $850,000from the Amoco Foundation, Inc. Alarge portion of Amoco's gift, $600,000,is in the form of unrestricted support,although $250,000 goes directly to theFund for Physical Sciences.The capital campaign for the Graduate School of Business (GSB) hasreached $18.7 million, which is 87 percent of its goal of $21.5 million. Thetotal includes $130,000 from theschool's faculty members, and corporate gifts from Hewlett Packard, Bozell& Jacobs, the Hartmarx Corporation,and R. R. Donnelley & Sons.A scholarship fund in honor ofWalter D. "Bud" Fackler, professor inthe GSB who is also director of theManagement Program and the Executive Program in the GSB, has reached$850,000 to date, the largest pool ofendowed scholarship funds in thehistory of the school. The money wascontributed by alumni of the ExecutiveProgram, the two-year management development program for veteran managers that meets in downtownChicago on alternating Fridays andSaturdays.The Law School campaign nowtotals $18.8 million, including a$100,000 gift from Brena D. and Lee A.Freeman for the Brena D. and Lee A.Freeman Faculty Research Fund. Inaddition, Dino D' Angelo, JD'44, hasincreased his previous gift of $4 million to the Law School to $4.5 million,for the construction of a library addition, which will bear the D' Angeloname. • Gretchen Gates, class of 1986, three-time All-American and Academic All-American last year,outstretches her opponents as Chicago beats Massachusetts Institute of Technology 66-49, in thesemifinals of the first "Coed Classic."

AmsterdamIn a polite Japanese letter, the firstthing to discuss is the weather. Lastsummer, the temperature in Japan wasmore than ninety degrees every day,making a tourist existence exhausting.In the middle of July I decided to take abreak, and stay with the family of a high-school friend in their air-conditionedapartment in Nagoya. Despite being Japan's third largest city, after Tokyo andOsaka, Nagoya is not a popular site fortourists because most of the city's historical landmarks were burned or bombedin World War II. Now, it is a city that hasrecovered— not very interesting, but orderly and functioning.To help me replenish my funds, myfriend's parents had arranged the mosttypical job for a gaijin (foreigner) visiting Japan. The afternoon after I arrivedin Nagoya, I had an appointment withthe president of a small company toteach him English.I didn't know what to expect. Thepresident stepped into the waitingroom, and I quickly bowed, being careful not to make eye contact but to look atthe floor. He reached out and shook myhand. He said, "I want you teach me togo to California." He had spent all afternoon memorizing the sentence.With the vague ideas of Englishgrammar that were left from his college education, and a dictionary, hewanted to become fluent. He was looking forward to an August trip to LosAngeles, especially Disneyland, andhe wanted to be able to understandAmericans, because we all speak toofast. For S12 an hour, and indulgent dinners at a nearby sushi bar, I spokeEnglish.The president didn't like it when Icorrected his grammar, so I stopped.My main service was providing vocabulary and idiomatic equivalents. I hadonly been through one year of Japanese at the University of Chicago, andforming even slightly interesting Japanese sentences was difficult. However, when it came to speaking English,my student was fearless. He precededeach attempt with a nervous laugh, butthen he would always jump right in. Byway of English exercise, he talkedabout everything. He would go out ofhis way to use large words, in sentences like: "Japanese language is onomatopoeia, I think," leaving me withthe image of him haphazardly scanning the dictionary.He revealed a lot about his life."Japanese businessman is closest tocompany," he said, confirming my suspicions about him. Certainly this company president worked six days aweek, and at least eight hours a day. Hespoke fondly of his wife and her cooking, but he never mentioned that thetwo of them did anything together. Hewas not planning to bring her to L. A.After the Japan Air Lines planecrash in the mountains, everyone became solemn, in respect for the 512 victims. All of the television stations became news stations for several days,showing lists of the dead, footage ofthe rescue efforts, the progress of thefew survivors, and weeping familymembers looking through the debrisand building makeshift shrines on thecharred mountainside. When I next came to the president'soffice, two days after the crash, he toldme, "I will not go to California becausebad-luck accident." The remaining sessions were canceled because he nolonger needed to learn English. Withtypical Japanese courtesy, he paid mefor the sessions canceled and said,"bye-bye."* * *Without a college degree, it is difficult to find employment at any of theEnglish schools in Japan. However,short-term jobs are available for the average traveler. My job with the president had been arranged before I hadarrived in Nagoya. While shoppingone afternoon, I found my other "job."I was in Matsuzakaya, one of thehandful of large Japanese departmentstores, facing the impossible task oftrying to find good sneakers in a sizethirteen. A woman approached me andpresented a business card inviting meto teach at the English ConversationAcademy, on any nights that I might beavailable. With well-rehearsed sentences, she promised $5, free drinksand bar food (from seaweed coveredcrackers to slabs of raisin-filled butter)for every hour of English conversation.My evenings were usually empty, so 1accepted. I offered to shake her hand,but she bowed.That night, my hosts told me thatthe school was in a dangerous area.They gave me the standard warningsfor any city; don't carry too much money, and pretend not to understand thelanguage. Achieving either effect wasnot difficult.52 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1986The English Conversation Academy was a block from Nagoya's Maharaja, one of a chain of dance clubs with alcohol and sushi bars, in the middle ofthe bar district. Such neighborhoodsserve as the model for the Western vision of Japanese cities as narrow avenues, overpopulated with buildingsand neon signs. The entire area can becomprised solely of these seven- oreight-story buildings, each containingas many bars.On most nights at the school, thestudents were mainly young women.They wanted to practice their Englishfor a variety of reasons: for businesspurposes, to somehow insure marriageability, and, most frequently, because they wanted eventually to moveto America.The theory behind creating aschool/bar was a valid one: to put thestudents at ease in their classroom.However, after a few drinks, shynesswould slip into giggling and giddy discussions of Western rock stars would begin. More than once, I was asked:"Do you know Madonna?"The gaijin teachers were almost exclusively male, and from a variety ofbackgrounds. They included an ex-sergeant from the Grenada projectwho wanted to hang out in Japan before going back to Nebraska; a blond,blue-eyed model who, out of boredom,had taken up teaching to put him incontact with other English-speakers; abusinessman from England who wanted to find a "nice, Japanese sort ofwife;" an ex-bartender from Florida,looking for a change; and myself, trying to spend a month living somewhatlike a native before becoming a touristagain.On my last evening, I was given anenvelope containing my pay and aportable fan as a bonus. I gave the fanto my hosts. Gift-giving is a popularsport in Japan. In fact, a present may begiven several times before it is actuallyaccepted. The owner of the schoolasked for my address and my birth date, a polite parting gesture whichimplies future correspondence.I haven't received any mail yet.Still, I think that in many of the placesthat I went this summer, there was avisible desire to learn, first-hand, moreabout America. From the various formsof English schools, to a simple soft-drink advertisement featuring JohnTravolta at the beach with ten blondewomen in bikinis, while a Japanese announcer sells the product, there is anapparent adoration of Western style.One last story: After a group of people left the elevator in which I was riding,I found myself alone with a young businessman. He seemed nervous, so I offered a smile. Still distracted, he avertedhis stare. Finally, he looked at me and,with sudden resolution, blurted: "Howdo you do? I'm twenty-three years old."Steven K.
