Bothwere Book of the Month Club selectionsand are expected to come out in paperback later this year. The first volumewas also a finalist in this year's BritishCrime Writers Association's "Dagger"Awards for Nonfiction."Beginning with Charles Dickensand Wilkie Collins, nearly every mys tery writer worth his salt has set at leastone of his tales against a London backdrop, " said Dale, who came up with theidea for her first book during a visit tothe city in which fictional sleuths suchas Lord Peter Wimsey, Lady Molly andPhilip Trent (created by authorsDorothy Sayers, Baroness Orczy andE.C. Bentley, respectively) solved theirgreatest mysteries."There are some excellent guides ofLondon," said Dale, "but I found that—with the exception of the likes of WilkieCollins, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, andG.K. Chesterton— little is said aboutmystery writers, let alone detectives."Both books provide step-by-step instructions for walking tours of areas referred to by dozens of mystery writers.Included with each tour are maps, suggestions for must-see spots and restaurants connected when possible to theactual detective stories, and lists of authors, books and sleuths.Prior to her research for the travel guides, Dale had written biographies ofDorothy Sayers and G.K. Chesterton.She has also edited two of Sayers' plays,published under the title Love All. Whileresearching the Sayers biography, Dalemade frequent visits to the library atWheaton College, where most of theauthor's papers are collected, andwhere Hendershott was working as alibrarian.Dale discovered that Hendershottwas an avid mystery reader and an experienced London traveler, in additionto her talents as diligent researcher. After agreeing to collaborate, Dale andHendershott flew to England on threeseparate occasions, carefully plottingout 25 detailed and tightly-written"mystery tours" which are included intheir walking guides. A brief samplefrom the London Brompton/Hyde Parkwalk:"At this point, just in front of theVictoria and Albert Museum, to thewest of the Oratory, Brompton Road becomes Cromwell Road...

G .K. Chesterton, a typical journalist in moderntimes, liked to work in a wine bar andthen wander amiably down the centerof Fleet Street or take a cab 200 feet todrop off his copy. Other detective storywriters, such as Edgar Wallace and E.C.Bentley, were journalists by trade andworked in Fleet Street. Like Scotland Yard, the area is also the hangout ofmany fictional characters who appearin our detective stories ..."Before designing their tours, Daleand Hendershott had to sift throughthousands of London-based mysteriesbefore arriving at a final list of over 40authors and 100 books which they feltprovided representative examples"from all the tried-and-true mysterytypes... every thing from apple-cheeked spinsters to superspies.""For the first book, we divided London geographically into its historicneighborhoods, then cross-indexedour authors, detectives, and books,pulled out the geographic sites mentioned by or in each, and remixed theminto these walking tours, " according toDale, who used a personal computer toorganize the material.To ensure that every detail in thetours was as accurate as possible, theauthors estimate they walked about 15miles for each mile covered in the book.Dale chuckled as she recalled how sheand Hendershott would briskly walk through the streets of London in theirjogging shoes, periodically speakinginto a portable tape recorder which theyused to take notes. "During one walk,"she said, "some bobbies over by Buckingham Palace began following us at adiscreet distance. We wondered if perhaps they thought we were terrorists."Almost as bad as terrorists in theminds of many English people, Daleand Hendershott are Americans. Realizing the hallowed ground on whichthey tread in writing about some ofEngland's most beloved authors, Dalere-checked her facts with helpful assistance from the British Tourist Authorityand the British Library, as well as several of the authors."The English writers have beencharming," said Dale. "Anyone who'salive, if we've written a letter for help,has instantly written back. Ellis Peters,an elderly lady who writes medievalmysteries, read the entire Shrewsburywalk. She and I argued about the factthat I thought the castle, according to allthe guidebooks, had been wood at thetime of her mystery stories, so she sentme back reference upon reference to thefact that it was really stone, but shecouldn't have been nicer about it."In tracking details of several of themysteries, Dale and Hendershott hadto resort to a bit of sleuthing themselves. Many locations mentioned inthe great Victorian mysteries have sincebeen torn down, so Dale used oldguidebooks to identify the missinglinks, mentioning them in her walks if aparticularly dramatic fictional eventhappened there. Even more challenging were authors like Agatha Christiewho would make up or playfullychange the names of locations in herstories."Agatha Christie often gives a streetaddress that sounds right but is totallyfictitious and then has her characterseat at a Lyons corner shop or have tea atthe Ritz Hotel," Dale explained. "Onthe other hand, she sometimes refers to3UCPEOPLERalph Scherer of Doomed Productions checks the light before filming. (Opposite page) Oneof the actors in his film, Frightened To Death.the Ritz as the Blitz or combines two hotels into one." In still a different way,Margery Allingham, world famous forher evocative descriptions of London," invents squares and cul-de-sacs, locating them right around the corner fromreal places."With the success of their guides onboth sides of Atlantic, Dale and Hendershott are contemplating a sequel inthe series which would be a mysteryreader's walking guide to Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Dale, who resides nearthe University of Chicago in Hyde Parkwith her husband, Charles, is also planning a mystery guide for Chicago. (Anabridged version of this project appeared as a lead article in the ChicagoSun-Time's "Book Week" section on January 1,1989.)"For some reason, more and more,Chicago is becoming an area that writers find handy to use for background, "said Dale, adding, "I can think of threemysteries off-hand which have definitescenes in Hyde Park and scenes righthere on campus." (Sara Paretksy,AB' 69, MBA 77, PhD '77, is one such author who uses Chicago as a backgroundin her V.I. Warshawski mysteries.)Dale is also doing some detectivework on her own past. A self-professed"faculty brat," she is the daughter ofRaleigh Stone, PhD'19, professor ofindustrial relations in the School ofBusiness, and Ursula Stone, PhD'29,both deceased.By making inquiries across thecountry, Dale recently discovered thather mother was the first woman in theUnited States to receive a doctoral degree from a school of business. Dalesaid she is interested in talking to anyalumni who may have known her mother, and will use the material as part of abook-length study about her motherand other distinguished professionalwomen of her generation, "since mostpeople seem to think there were no professional women before 1960."Tim Obermiller "Doomed"- butnot doomedPerhaps it was because RalphScherer, AB'88, was trying to make afilm "of merit," or maybe it was just acase of being jinxed. After all, what canyou expect when you name your firstcompany Doomed Productions?A lead actor injured his knee daysbefore initial shooting, distributorsyawned at the movie's lack of "breastsand blood" and the stock marketcrashed right after Scherer's old highschool buddy and co-producer had taken out a $60,000 loan for the production. The outlook for completing theproject seemed grim, but this cliff-hanger will apparently have a happyending. "It's just about done, " said Scherer,22, of his first film, entitled Frightened toDeath. "The final copies will be madeand then the soundtrack will be added.Then we'll take it out to LA and hopefully set up some screenings."Although Scherer and his collaborator, Chris Otjen, have yet to turn aprofit from the project, they havegained a wealth of experience sincelaunching the film in August, 1987.Scherer now chats like a pro about background cameras, close-focus ultra-speed lenses and slow dolly shots—although he admits to knowing next tonothing about the technical process ofmaking movies a year ago.Scherer and Otjen share a commonlove of movies that goes back to theirhigh school days in Milwaukee, WI,when the two would avidly discuss themerits of the latest Kubrick, Hitchcock,or Peckinpah films they had seen. Otjen enrolled at the University of South-UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1989ern California to study film, but becamerestless with the emphasis on theory inhis courses. An English major, Scherer,too, was taking film classes at the University of Chicago, but became convinced by Otjen's argument "that weshould go out and try it ourselves."The script was a somewhat obligatory nod to the burgeoning, bludgeoning horror market, in which a cheaply-made movie can— with the help ofan attractive model and some goryspecial effects— turn a handsome profit, especially through video rentals.Although Frightened to Death has a"psycho killer," Scherer said he wasactually striving for a more complex,psychological thriller in the Hitchcock tradition. It was a hard conceptto sell in Hollywood, where Schererand Otjen originally tried to get theirproject financed by a major productioncompany."A guy from Paramount said it had'serious merit,'" recalled Scherer. "Ihad no idea what that was supposed tomean— maybe that we were makingsome attempt to create a real movie andnot just turn a quick buck."New World Pictures wanted tosign us to a contract, but we decidedthere was a strbng possibility theywould want to edit it or just take it out ofour hands. So Chris got a loan againstsome stocks and trust funds and tookout $60,000 He was understandablynervous with that much money atstake, especially in the last week of filming, when the stock market crashed . Wetried to finish as much as we could, expecting the bank might call in theloan."The actors worked on a commissionbasis, which means they will get a percentage of whatever profits the filmmight make. Gil Shine, a professionalactor from Milwaukee, WI, plays an aging theater director. His young wifeplots with her lover, a handsome stagemanager, to murder the director.Scherer desperately wanted to cast Mark Audrain, a student-at-large in theCollege who is involved in UniversityTheater, to play the wife's lover, but aday before shooting Audrain calledwith news that he had injured his kneecap and required surgery. Otjen agreedto play the part himself.Lenaye Seigle, a friend of Otjen'ssister, was cast to play the lead actress,"largely because we thought she lookeda lot like Grace Kelly," said Scherer.Lastly, Scherer had to find an actor toplay the "psycho killer" and ended updrafting his camera operator for thepart. "Although he really didn't workout as a camera operator, " said Scherer, "I would have to say he portrayed aderelict human being pretty well."With actors and equipment in tow,Scherer and Otjen were ready to beginshooting in October in their hometownof Milwaukee. One scene required a filling station for a backdrop. Scherer recalls "we went to half a dozen stationsin Milwaukee and every one of themturned us down."In frustration, they moved to morefriendly territory— namely, LandO'Lakes, WI, population 500— andfound the inhabitants exceptionallyopen to the idea of their town beingused as a movie prop. "It was great!"said Scherer. "We did a red-neck segment, so we had to find some burly-looking guys. As soon as we asked,there they were."Scherer and Otjen completed re-shooting twenty-five minutes of the101-minute film this spring in Chicago,and will have it completely edited,scored and mixed before taking Frightened to Death back to Los Angeles.The experience of filming Frightenedto Death has made Scherer wiser in thecommercial ways of Hollywood, but apparently not too cynical. While completing the film, he was also working ona movie script which he eventually submitted for his B. A. project— an adaptation of Melville's short story, "Bartlebythe Scrivener." He and Otjen are alsoplanning another movie together. Tentatively, Doomed Productions's follow-up to Frightened to Death will be an adaptation of Faulkner's As I Lay Dying."Looking back," said Scherer, "I'dhave to say that my college experiencewas a decisive help in making this movie. It taught me to motivate myself andencouraged my imagination."1 think the crucial element in making a film of merit is the talent for seeingthe extraordinary in the ordinary.Hitchcock, Kubrick— they have thatability It's something I hope to bring tothe screen as well."Tim Obermiller"'^M^f-'vmKsgmMINING THEBUREAUCRACYUsing computers, apolitical scientistand his students glean information from thepublic records for their studies ofsegregation in housing and schooling.f;witness incivil rightscases.

As socialscientists, our work is usually received with some dull preliminarystatement like, Another study was released today. . . '"While Orfield may not be a Dickens or a Steinbeck, when he issuesa report of one of his studies, it invariably makes the front pages of themajor newspapers in whatever city he's writing about, as well as the radio and television news programs.Orfield, AM'65, PhD'68, professor in the Departments of PoliticalScience and Education, has been invited to appear before Congress so manytimes he's on a first name basis withmany of the nation's lawmakers. He'sbecome adept at sparring with lawyersin the courtroom as an expert witness inover a dozen major civil rights cases,and he is eagerly sought after as a consultant by school districts and state andlocal agencies across the country In hiscluttered office on the fourth floor of Albert Pick Hall, the phone rings steadilywith calls from colleagues, students,public officials and journalists.What's so special about what GaryOrfield has to say?"The thing that's happened in recent years," Orfield explained, "is thatthe federal government has fundedvery little research on racial change andinequality, so that it's meant that thoseof us who have figured out how to dosuch research without any federalgrants get an inordinate amount of "Leaders are beginning to realize thatwe're going to become a multi-racialsociety to a degree that's unimaginablefor our grandparents. And ourchildren will be living in that society"8 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1989Orfield giveshis students achance tolearn aboutthe Americanpolitical process firsthand.He's shownwith studentsSkip Dane, JimGimpel andFaith Paul.attention— not necessarily because ourwork is so brilliant but simply becauseit's so difficult for anybody to find outwhat's going on."With help from a group of dedicatedgraduate and undergraduate students,Orfield has acquired and analyzed dataculled from thousands of public records. In one project completed lastyear, Orfield and his students looked atU. S. Department of Education computer tapes of enrollments by race for36,000 schools and 3,400 school districts across the nation, in order to determine changes in racial compositionand segregation of American publicschools in the 1980s."I have a passionate belief that theinformation these agencies have belongs to the public, and they don't havethe right to monopolize it or to just parcel out little bits that happen to fostertheir particular agenda," said Orfield,who has successfully filed Freedom of Information requests and worked withcongressional committees to get datafrom several uncooperative government agencies."A bureaucracy has incredibleamounts of information, but there's agreat equalizer now which is that computing has become affordable for people without huge research budgets,"said Orfield, motioning towards thepersonal computer that sits behind ateetering stack of books and papers onhis office desk."Too much academic researchhasn't caught up with that fact, and relies just on indirect measures throughsurveys, when we can actually get theunderlying information and records ofthe country's bureaucracies and thenfigure out precisely what's going onwith these programs. This should beone of the key balances in a bureaucraticsociety."It is also a method of research thatcauses panic, defensiveness or evenoutrage within bureaucracies that arethe subjects of Orfield's studies. "Thefirst instinct of some leaders of these organizations is to kill the bearer of thebad news," he acknowledged, "but atthe same time you find your researchempowers lots of people who work inthe organization who've known aboutthese problems, too. The long-term effect of a study can create ongoing discussions that will spill over into placesyou don't even expect."A 1984 study of the Job TrainingPartnership Act (JTPA) in Illinois conducted by Orfield and 25 of his studentsis one example of this " spill over" effect .With interviews of dozens of government officials and analysis of "every bitof data we could get our hands on, " thestudy was eventually compiled into a500-page book and submitted toCongress.The Chicago study concluded thatthe $3.3 billion-a-year JTPA program-by accepting mostly high school graduates, providing them with "very superficial additional training, " and closingthe program off to those who most needit— was "more a public relations effort"than a serious attempt to assist thenation's unemployed. Orfield and hisgroup were later invited to Capitol Hillto present their controversial findingsbefore a congressional committee thatoversees the JTPA program."This student project we did, withvery small amounts of money, was considered the best study of any state in the country, raising issues that are still being considered in the current job training debate. It took immense amounts ofenergy on the part of the students to digout this information, to find out whatwas actually going on," said Orfield,who recalls that the Illinois JTPA director at that time contacted both the University's president, Hanna Gray, andthe provider of the foundation grant torequest that the study be halted. Thesame official later, at a congressionalhearing, conceded that many of thestudy's conclusions were correct."The students get very excited during the whole process. I put their nameson the reports, and the ones who dothem often become famous personalities in the different cities where theirstudies are issued, " Orfield said. "Theyget attacked and they have to go on radio or appear before hearings to defendthemselves. I tell them when they'redoing the research, 'You'd better besure you're right, that every figure iscorrect, because you're likely going tohave large resources put to discreditingyou."'OLLEGE STUDENTDouglas Hartman recalled that when hefirst signed on towork for Orfield, heexpected "the standard drudge work." Less than a year later, he found himself being chauffeuredaround the city to meet with journalistsand discuss a paper he had co-authoredwith Orfield on Chicago high schools.Hartman, now a senior in the College's Joint BA/MA Program, admitted,"When I started working with Mr. Orfield, I really didn't realize how well-known he was, or how much politicalpull he really had, but after I had beenworking with him for a while— it wasjust amazing! You'll be in his office forten or fifteen minutes, and he'll get acall from The New York Times editorialboard and from Newsweek, and then acouple of TV stations, asking for interviews.

The firstChapel Day was held on October 1,1892.The ceremony began with a procession in academic regalia, accompaniedby the Rockefeller Chapel organ and abrass ensemble. The 24-voice chapelchoir, under the direction of Victor Weber, director of chapel music, performed works from the Middle Agesthrough baroque and later periods."The walls of this church have cometo symbolize great healing and greatstrength for me and my family," saidn^W ERHAPS NO THEME HAS BEEN ADDRESSEDMORE OFTEN FROM THIS PULPIT. . . THAN THERELATION BETWEEN FAITH AND KNOWLEDGE.Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, (Democrat, West Virginia). Rockefeller is thegreat-grandson of John D. Rockefeller,the founder of the University, for whomthe chapel is named.Rockefeller recalled that he andSharon Percy, daughter of former Senator Charles Percy, AB'41, were marriedin Rockefeller Chapel just over 21 yearsago.The chapel, Rockefeller said, represented "great strength" to him "because this church— and this University—have come to represent the ideals ofgiving, of teaching, of obligation, ofphilanthropy. Sixty years ago, in 1928,my grandfather stood here and dedicated this chapel. And 97 years ago, in1891, my great-grandfather foundedthe University of Chicago. The institution was established to provide the besthigher education here in the heartlandof the Midwest. My great-grandfather,who grew up in the Midwest (in Cleveland), believed that Midwestern valuesstood for an open and honest spirit ofgiving, the obligation to communityand country."Rockefeller talked about "the spiritof volunteerism" which he feels, in"our culture... has blurred." He recalled his days in the Peace Corps, andlater in the VISTA program, which ledto his choosing "public service, politics(if you will) as my career and my full-time focus." He encouraged young people today to enter public service."We must see our lives," he concluded, "as a quest to make everythingfully worthwhile. We must seize opportunities every step of the way to get involved in solving individual and collective problems. We must challengeourselves, in the university and beyond, to find ways to make a difference.It will enrich our own lives and it willenrich America."Pelikan, PhD'46, the Sterling Professor of History at Yale University anda former faculty member of the University, delivered the dedication sermon. (An abridged version follows.)"My 'text' is not taken from thepropers for this Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost... but from the motto ofThe University of Chicago: 'Crescatscientia, vita excolatur. Let knowledge be increased, let life be enriched.' Ever sincethe glory days here on the Quadrangles, classicists and medievalists havebeen searching, with the Latin concordance and more recently with the computer, for the Latin original of that motto; but I am inclined to join myself tothose who have found the original notin Latin at all but in English, in the Prologue to the In Memoriam of Alfred LordTennyson:Our little systems have their day;They have their day and cease to be;They are but broken lights of thee,And thou, O Lord, art more than they.We have but faith: we cannot know,For knowledge is of things we see;And yet we trust it comes from thee,A beam in darkness, let it grow.Let knowledge grow from more to more,But more of reverence in us dwell;That mind and soul, according well,May make one music as before.But vaster."LORD TENNYSON, YOU WILL RE-call, died in 1892, the very year of theUniversity's founding, and his words,quaint and Victorian though they maysound to some ears, still speak aboutthe mission of this university and aboutthe message of this chapel."Yet it is by no means obvious thatthey do. The assumption that if knowledge grows life will be enriched maywell sound naive today, after the experiments of the Nazi doctors, who were so devoted to the growth of knowledgethat they didn't seem to care whetherlife (or, at any rate, the life of their victims) would be enriched or not— oreven, in the judgment of many (thoughnot in my judgment, I must add), aftersome other experiments that were going on under the old Stagg Field at thetime when I was a graduate studenthere... At the very least, devotion tothe motto "Crescat scientia, vita excolatur"requires both an explanation and an apologia in today's world. And so, ofcourse, does the presence, and now therededication, of this Rockefeller Memorial Chapel as, despite all the other construction that has gone on here over thepast six decades, still the most prominent feature of the architectural landscape of the university. Even withoutasking whether the university wouldbuild such a chapel now if it didn'thave one, isn't it really something of amagnificent anachronism (perhapseven a museum or a mausoleum) in atime— and on a campus!— of such self-conscious and self-assertive secularism? Some resources for an answer toboth of these questions, which I obviously believe to be ultimately part ofone question, may be found in a moreprofound consideration of the motto . . .Our little systems have their day;They have their day and cease to be;They are but broken lights of thee,And thou, O Lord, art more than they."The first half of that stanza is onethat would, I suppose, evoke wide assent on this campus. For in a real sense,the Ph.D. I received here in 1946, andfor that matter the five-volume lifeworkI have been publishing here at the University of Chicago Press, may be said tohave been predicated on the principlethat the Tittle systems' of the history ofthought, including the history of Christian thought, are, as we say in the academic vernacular, 'time-conditioned'and 'time-bound'; they have their dayand cease to be. In every one of the divi-UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1989Workmen install new lead-coatedcopper on the roof of Rockefeller Chapel toreplace the old copper roof system.sions and professional schools, thatprinciple stands as a fundamental presupposition of our scholarly work, bothof our research and of our teaching. Toconfine myself to the division and to theschool that I know best, James WestfallThompson, Wilhelm Pauck, and Richard McKeon disagreed on many fundamental questions; but they agreed onthe proposition that the way to understand an idea, any idea regardless ofhow hallowed, was to see it in its historical context, and each of them employed a superb gift for historical and dialectical imagination to communicate to uswhat it must have been like to acceptsuch an idea and its consequences.Each of them also knew— and tried inhis own way to counterbalance— therelativism to which that proposition soreadily leads. Yet what we who are theirheirs have probably learned best fromthem is the skill of looking at the Tittlesystems' of the past in other than apolemical and partisan fashion. It is askill for which I shall always be grateful to them — and to this university."It is, however, the second half ofthe quatrain that speaks about the message incarnate in the stone of this building and that at the same time creates thedifficulty, both for believers and fornonbelievers:They are but broken lights of thee,And thou, O Lord, art more than they."Nonbelievers have difficulty withthe Tights of thee' part, and many believers with the word 'broken'; but infact it has long been the teaching of religious faith at its best that the transcendent God confessed by the creed andworshipped in the liturgy truly transcends also the creed and the liturgy:And thou, O Lord, art more than they'... In that curious blending of Neopla-tonic metaphysics and Christian orthodoxy that dominates so much of Greektheology in the patristic era, where I amspending the major part of my ownscholarly time these days, the centralprinciple is that all affirmation about God is in fact negation: God is not arock or a lion or a person or even a being, even though these are the onlyways we (and, for that matter, the biblical writers) are able, within the limitations of human thought and speech, todeal with a being that is hyperousios, beyond being...We have but faith: we cannot know,For knowledge is of things we see;And yet we trust it comes from thee,A beam in darkness: let it grow."There is perhaps no theme thathas been addressed more often fromthis pulpit over the past sixty years thanthe relation between faith and knowledge, revelation and reason, philosophy and theology: According to the seventeenth chapter of the Book of Acts, St.Paul came to Mars Hill in Athens onlyonce, but in this chapel we seem to becommuting there every week. In thatsuccession, Tennyson's epistemology—and, if the hypothesis is correct, theepistemology underlying 'Crescat scien-13tia, vita excolatur'— appears to give amixed signal. When he says that 'wehave but faith,' he appears to suggestthat sola fides, the 'mere faith' of the theologians, is not very much at all, eventhough it may be all we have; on the other hand, when he says that 'we cannotknow, ' he seems to be no less critical ofthe knowledge of the philosophers andscholars "But such a reading would be superficial and inadequate as a way ofcoming to terms with the declaration:And yet we trust it comes from thee,A beam in darkness: let it grow."'It is,' an obscure proverb madepopular by the Christophers has said,'better to light a candle than to curse thedarkness;' and though the 'beam indarkness' shed by the light of knowledge may not be everything that ourmore optimistic forebears, also here atthe University of Chicago, seem to have believed that it is, it is in fact a great dealindeed. So much is it that (a) 'we trust itcomes from thee' and (b) we pray 'let itgrow.' . . ."And thus the outward and visiblesign of this chapel also stands as a prayer in stone, that this knowledge may bepermitted to grow in such a way that lifemay truly be enriched. We all know ofconcrete instances of such enrichmentof life that have indeed come from thegrowth of knowledge in the laboratories, clinics, and libraries of this university. But we also know that if the enrichment has come, it has, more often thannot, come as almost an afterthought, asa gift of grace added to the growth ofknowledge, which must therefore beseen as an end in itself. Yet that, too, isan intellectual analogue to a cardinalprinciple of religious faith Vita excolatur has been added untous, if it has, after we have sought firstthe Crescat scientia which is, for the life of the scholar, the form of the kingdom ofGod and of his righteousness. Thisdoes not happen automatically, it doesnot happen always, and it cannot bemanipulated. But it is the only way thishappens at all. The study of the Tittlesystems' that have had their day showsus that neither our knowledge nor ourreverence can ever be quite what theywere for previous generations... Andyet the heritage of music celebratedhere over the years reminds us that bothour knowledge and our reverence standin profound continuity with the generations that built this university and thischapel, for the growth of knowledgeand the enrichment of life.Let knowledge grow from more to more,But more of reverence in us dwell;That mind and soul, according well,May make one music as beforeBut vaster.Crescat scientia, vita excolatur.

The building was begunin 1925 and completed in 1928.HE ROCKEFELLERChapel renovation workbegan in June, 1987,when the chapel wasclosed and scaffoldingfilled the 265-foot longnave from narthex to chancel, extending 102 feet to its ceiling. According toBernard Brown, dean of the Chapel,major expenses were for scaffolding,tuckpointing, and a new roof.During the renovation and restoration the leaded-glass windows, whichare softly tinted, were cleaned with artgum erasers; the woodwork wascleaned and oiled; the masonry and theroof were repaired; seat cushions wererecovered.Specialists remortared the ceilingtiles and removed years of soot, revealing beautifully colored mosaics thatdecorate the arches and vaults. Acoustical sealant was applied to the ceilingtiles to provide a crisper, more reverberant sound. gorian chants and the motets, some of itamong the earliest music ever notated,was written for buildings like the chapel, " said Weber. "The sound of that repertoire becomes richer with the renovation because the chapel will, in effect,mix and synthesize the sound. The organ becomes more resonant and thechoir more balanced and blended in theway they sound."Because of the improved acoustics,the choir will now perform in the chancel at the front of the chapel. For manyyears, they had performed in a loftbacked with panels that attempted toproject the music.The chapel's ability to resonatesound was greatly improved by the renovation, said Victor Weber, director ofchapel music. When the chapel wasbuilt the ceiling was constructed withtiles designed by Gustovino, to reduceechoes and to provide an agreeable environment for sermons and lectures.Electronic amplifiers can now make thespoken word audible from nearly anywhere in the chapel, but do little toovercome the muffling effect the ceiling—with the accumulated soot of sixtyyears— has had on music.Workmen applied nine coats ofsealant to harden and smooth the surface of the ceiling tiles in order to closetheir pores and enhance their ability toreflect sound. As a result, the musicsung by the chapel choir now resonatesfor four seconds in the chapel instead ofthe former two seconds, which in musical terms, according to Weber, washardly any resonance at all."The music we perform, the Gre- IN DECEMBER, 1910, JOHND.

He stipulated that $1.5 millionof that gift was to be spent on a chapelfor the University, which would be the"central and dominant feature of theUniversity group." In June, 1919, architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue wascommissioned to draw up plans for thenew University Chapel. The estimatedcost for the chapel at the time was $1.9million.On April 18, 1928, the building wascompleted.On October 28, 1928, the new building, called the University Chapel, wasdedicated. Rockefeller's son, John D.Rockefeller, Jr., spoke at the dedication.The chapel was first used on October 29by the Chicago Church Federation, andon November 4, 1928, the University'schurch services began to be held thereinstead of in Mandel Hall.

It wasconstructed almost entirely of masonry; there is no structural steel except forthe roof trusses and a few beams. Thebuilding is supported on 56 caissonswhich reach down into the ground foreighty feet into solid rock.Rockefeller Chapel is architectGoodhue's last work and is consideredby many to be his masterpiece. It isbased on the Church of Albi, King'sCollege Chapel in England, and otherbuildings on the University's quadrangles, all combined by the architect toachieve a style that was massive andgothic, yet simple to the point of austerity. The chapel is a genuinely gothicbuilding, but it is also an originalstructure.Rockefeller Chapel is an irregularcruciform building, 265 feet long and120 feet wide, the east transept beinglonger than the west because it formsthe base of the tower. The tower rises207 feet in height. The chapel has 1,789permanent seats and room for 138chairs to be placed on the floor. The endresult is a building which is generallyarchaic in style and symbolic in character, due also to the many statues andcarvings on both the interior andexterior.The sculpture which adorns thechapel was decided upon by a University of Chicago committee, working withthe architect and his associates. Thesculptured figures on the chapel's facade were chosen to represent the interest of religion, not only in strictly religious history, but also in the arts,sciences, and politics. The sculpture includes statues which represent statesmen, philosophers, scientists, poets,and saints throughout history. Thereare statues of the apostles; representations of the symbols of devotion, music,and figures from the growth of religionand philosophy in general throughout time, including Hebrew prophets, Zoroaster, Plato, Christ, Luther, andCalvin. Representations of two University of Chicago presidents, WilliamRainey Harper and Ernest DeWitt Burton, are carved above a doorway. Thesouth door exterior is engraved with thearchangel Michael and a line of university shields (Chicago, Cornell, Columbia, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Princeton, Stanford and Yale.)Above the main entrance in the interior of the chapel is a large woodenscreen carved in Germany. At the opposite end of the chapel, behind the pulpit, is a reredos of delicate stonework.The most commanding feature ofthe interior is the vaulted ceiling ofGustavino tile. The bays are separatedby transverse ribs six feet in width.These ribs are enlivened with decorative medallions and panels in gold andcolor, done by Hildreth Meiere, a NewYork artist, who called them "emblemsof the universe which reveal God."These emblems— bird, beast, fish, reptile, sun, moon, star, tree, flower, man,earth, air, water, fire— are in fact an illuminated representation of St. Francis's "Canticle of the Sun."To the west of the chancel is themain console of one of the great organsof this country, designed and built byErnest M. Skinner of the Skinner OrganCompany of Boston. The large pit possesses four manuals and 126 stops, 103stops located on the main console and23 additional stops in the antiphonalorgan console located in the south choirgallery. Opposite the organ console, onthe east wall of the chancel, stand theorgan pipes, and a carved wood screen,matching the reredos in detail and refinement of design. At its center standsthe figure of Jubal, son of Lamech, "thefather of all such as handle the harp andorgan" in the Book of Genesis.The organ contains a complete selection of orchestral voices and manysoft ethereal effects not being built today. The large pipe scales, necessary to sound effectively in a building of cathedral proportions, also are not beingbuilt today because of their greatexpense."The organ needs some restorativework, which is not unusual for an instrument of its size and vintage, " saidWeber. "What is unusual about the organ is that it has been newly recognizedas being of great historic value. There isa movement afoot in this country to giveproper recognition to E. M. Skinner,who built the organ. He was a great organ builder, probably the best of allAmerican builders of that period. Ourhope is that the organ can be restored tohis original specifications. It wouldtherefore be preserved as one of thegreat romantic instruments of thiscountry."The original keyboards and someof the original pipes were removed fromthe instrument over the years. We havebeen very fortunate in discoveringwhere those things have been stored,and have discreetly been acquiringsome of these materials for reinstallation. Our hope is to have the instrument restored to its original specifications in time for the University'scentennial celebrations, in 1991-1992."The seventy-two bell carillon in thetower, one of the largest in the world,was given by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., asa memorial to his mother, LauraSpelman Rockefeller. The bells rangefrom 10.5 pounds to the Great Bourdon, weight 36,926 pounds and havinga diameter of 117 inches, or almost 10feet. The bells are arranged in three stories of the tower.The chapel is used by the University for three main purposes: weeklyservices, mournings and celebrations(funerals and weddings), and convocation exercises. The chapel also is usedfor discussion groups, including Bibleclasses, and by social groups. Variousmusical groups present performancesin the chapel and it is occasionally usedas a theater. s17"Just becauseyou cannot read-does notmean you are dumb."THE PIECE BY LORETTAHawkins printed here forthe first time was written asa "class assignment" in asummer seminar for highschool teachers that I" ran"for the monthof July 1988. 1 might bettersay that it ran me, becausethe sixteen teachers, ranging from novices to veterans, kept me on my toes inways that I could not havepredicted.

For the last fouryears the University hasbeen offering, under the direction of Laura Bornholdt,special assistant to the president and director of university-school relations, abroad range of month-longsummer seminars for teachers in Chicago's public highschools. Funded by private foundations (the Frye Foundation, the Santa Feand Southern Pacific Foundation, theDow Chemical Company Foundation,the National Science Foundation, theLouis Lurie Foundation, and the Women's Board of the University of Chicago), the seminars are taught by facultymembers who see working with highBY LORETTA A. HAWKINSWITH AN INTRODUCTION BY WAYNE C. BOOTHUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/WINTER 1989school teachers as more productivethan joining the national pastime ofcomplaining about what's wrong withthem.Each year Laura Bornholdt invitesapplications to six or seven seminars.This year we offered seminars in chemistry, mathematics, history, literature,biology, romance languages, and writing (the latter offered this year for thefirst time). Sixteen applicants are accepted to each group and given a stipend of $1,000 and a book allowance of$100— not as any kind of real pay for thehours spent but as a partial release fromthe need for summer income.The remarkable success of theseseminars, which have so far engagedmore than 250 teachers from Chicago'sschools, is the subject for another occasion, but as introduction to LorettaHawkins's story, I should say a fewwords about the writing seminar forwhich it was written.It was advertised to prospectiveteachers as a chance to improve theirteaching of composition, in part byworking to improve their own writing.From about thirty applicants, I deliberately selected sixteen from as wide arange of schools and teaching tasks aspossible: teachers from the "best"schools and the "worst," teachers foradvanced placement and teachers of"nothing but remedials." I have no wayof knowing just how representative oftheir colleagues my own group of sixteen were; presumably they must beconsiderably above average in preparation and interest, or they would nothave applied. What I do know, now, isthat every one of them, even includingthe one who barely completed her assigned tasks because she was in themiddle of a divorce, failed to fit the generalizations we hear about our poorteachers.We met three times a week to discuss an extensive list of readings (ranging in profundity from Whitehead toBooth), as well as their own essays andtheir ideas about how to teach writing.From the beginning I asked them towrite something for each period, andthey kept my desk flooded and mymind challenged with their accounts oftheir teaching problems and methods,their successes and failures, theirhopes and fears. Some of them haddone no serious writing in a long time;others were already engaged in professional writing, and a few expressed thelonging to "become a writer." My first writing assignment wassimple: "Describe the worst problem 'you face as a teacher, and explain whatyou try to do about it." That first batchof papers could have been seen as discouraging; the problems loomed solarge, the solutions seemed on thewhole weak when compared with theobstacles. But it soon became clear thatthe group of sixteen possessed a kind ofcollective wisdom about teaching— thatthey could learn from one anothermuch of what they needed to transformtheir classes from burdens into opportunities. Their own response was to request that we continue the seminarthrough the year, meeting from time totime on Saturday mornings. As I write(December 1), we've already held onesuch meeting.Of course much of our time hasbeen spent on questions like "What canI ever do with the ones who seem unable or unwilling to learn." "They cometo me in the fall and I ask them, 'Well,what did you learn last year?' and theysay 'Didn't learn nuthin!'" "My principal just doesn't care whether they learnor not, as long as things look good." "Ijust can't handle the load I have: fiveclasses with more than thirty in each. Idon't even pretend to read their so-called research papers; I just weighthem."About halfway through the month,after a great deal of talk about what todo with the "unteachables," we all sawTruffaut's movie The Wild Child. It wasthen that Loretta Hawkins chose towrite on the experience of her own belated awakening, in the fifth grade. Theother teachers agreed that hers was oneof the most rewarding of their efforts,and when I showed it to people aroundthe University I found them saying,"That piece just must be published."It is impossible to convey here evena pale reflection of the vigor thoseteachers showed in engaging with eachother's ideas about how to write, how toteach writing, and how to do both better. It would be even harder to expresswhat I came to feel as, week by week, Isaw those hard-worked and unappreciated folks digging into their self-assigned task of improving their ownwriting and thinking about how to improve their teaching of writing. My ownsense of inadequacy to the occasion isone reason I feel fortunate to be able toturn to Loretta Hawkins's account ofwhy we should not "assume that 'dummies' are dumb." %I SHALL NEVER FORGET THEday, when I was eleven years oldand in the fifth grade, that Ilearned to read. Whenever I callup the memory of that unique"birth day," it comes immediately forward— vivid, frightening, euphoric. Through gradesone, two, and three, I suspected that myteachers knew that I could not read, andI knew I could not, but had managed forall that time to fake it somehow. Infourth grade, however, the class workhad become so difficult that I could nolonger even pretend that I could read. Iwas, if you will, found out.I had the dubious distinction infourth grade of failing all of my majorsubjects. Embarrassed and shamed beyond words, I was passed into fifthgrade on probation. The understanding was that I must improve drasticallywithin six weeks or be returned to thefourth grade. I was so afraid that firstweek in fifth grade because knowingthat I could not read, I had not theslightest idea of how to save myself. Butas fate would have it, and if this were afairy tale, I might say the gods savedme. But in the end what really saved mewas a spanking brand-new pair of hornrimmed glasses.For it was at the beginning of myLoretta A. Hawkins is a teacher, poet, andwriter.

So poor was my vision, it was discovered, that sitting inthe first seat, I couldn't see anythingwritten on the blackboard. In fact, Icould not even distinguish letters in abook held in my own hands, the optometrist measured. So I was fitted withfairly thick-lensed glasses and returned to school to await that fatefulday.It was shortly after that I was sittingin class, during reading, with my fairlynew glasses propped gratefully on mynose, trying desperately, as I had alwaysdone, to understand the mystery of thispuzzle called reading. Although I knewthe alphabet and the sounds that theletters represented, and possessed ameager sight vocabulary, for all practical purposes, I could not read. I was listening to the other students read, trying as best I could to follow from word toword in the book. I wanted so desperately to find a correlation between theword the student was speaking and thejumbled letters written on the page thatI could now see.And from out of nowhere, like amiracle, like a revelation, I understood.I knew the words ! As the student read, Irealized that I knew what he was goingto say. I knew the words! As he read, myeyes ran greedily ahead, like a childgrabbing candy, to words not yet read.Yes, I knew what he was going to say.My eyes would dart ahead and thenback and yes! He was saying what mymind had just thought that second before. Somehow I understood how theletters made words. My eyes would runfrantically ahead and yes! Yes! Yes!I became wild with joy and wavedmy hand madly to be called on to read.Of course the teacher would not call onme, knowing I could not read, but I persisted. I called out please, please and Isuppose, seeing the something new inmy eyes, she called on me to readaloud.The actual oral reading wasunmiraculous-sounding and far fromfluent, that first time, but I did manageto stumble along, haltingly, attackingthe words on some level as they rose upin front of me like strange, but slightlyfamiliar soldiers. More importantly, Iwas able to go home and practice thisnew-learned skill, which I didzealously. When I was promoted fromfifth grade, I received an award for having earned straight E's (Excellent) on my report card. But best of all, in fifthgrade, I had found the world and become me.* * *I tell this story to every incomingclass and it seems to fascinate them. Itell them this true story because I believe it contains a valuable moral whichcan be summed up simply:Just because you cannot read-Does not mean you are dumb.And this knowledge, and the subsequent hard work that the realizationof this knowledge promotes, is what somany students today, as in the past,need.I had felt, back then, that something very "big" was wrong with me.Something so big that I could not see it,so strong, I could not fight it back, soevasive I could not even name it, sopowerful that I dare not even contemplate its essence for fear it would om-nivorously devour me and nobodywould know that I was gone.I later discovered its name wasNON-READER but at that unsophisticated and innocent time of my life, itmanifested itself only in strange adultstares, harsh tones, not being called onto read and other subtle rejections that Ifelt but did not understand.And much later, when I read TheMiracle Worker, I cried, because I understood what it was like when the coolingwater splashed into Helen's hands andthe soothing "knowing" splashed intoher mind. Her laughter was only a celebration of her rebirth. What caused thatconnection that made Helen "know?"No one is sure but I feel it was from thesame source that made me "know."Ironically, by eighth grade, I was placedin, of all places, special classes for the"gifted," studying Spanish and advanced literature. But mercifully, in myyouthful ignorance, I did not know thename of this newly-bestowed phenomenon either.Having had that experience as achild has been my singular most profound and significant guiding factor asa teacher. I tell my students every yearbefore I begin to teach, before I knowtheir Iowa Basic Skills scores, before Iknow even their names, "Do not allowanyone to convince you that you are notintelligent, not good and not valuable.Even if you cannot read, or write, orcount. You are highly intelligent, you aregood and you are so valuable to society.If you cannot read then it means one thing: you cannot read. If you cannotwrite, it means that you cannot write,and if you cannot count, it means youcannot count. If you cannot do thesethings, then that is why you are here. Ifyou cannot do these things, then that iswhy 7 am here."Moreover, when I tell these glowingwords to my students, I say them because I deeply believe them. I do believethat they are intelligent because I amteaching normal children, not retardedones, and if they appear to be otherwise, it is because something elsewhereis wrong. I do believe that they are good,because the history of human behaviorand my experiences have proven thatmankind is intrinsically good, unlesssomething is wrong. And I know thatthese good, intelligent humans are ofvalue to society, if only we who defineand control do not allow superficialitiesto obscure our vision.And moral vision based on one'spast has been questioned. It was Frederick Douglass who said that the oppressed did not learn to not oppress because of their own oppression. But thatis not always true. My childhood experience taught me well. It made me understand that if a student stands beforeme intellectually ignorant, verbally incoherent, physically filthy, socially belligerent, and spiritually defeated, thenthat is my given. That is my student.And one thing is certain: he did not create himself, nor, probably, his own pitiful conditions. I, as a teacher, cannothold a student in contempt for his ignorance, no more than a doctor can hold apatient in contempt for his illness. To doso would be unjust, for it would be thesame as being scornful of a murderedperson for having died, which of courseis a preposterous notion. We cannot, inthe classroom, make the victim feelguilty for having been victimized.I shudder to think what would havebecome of me had my mother, to whomI am forever grateful, not bought meglasses. Or what if, instead of passingme on probation, my fourth gradeteacher had flung me into an EMH (Ed-ucable Mentally Handicapped) pit? Napoleon, in a moment of insight, said,"The human race is governed by itsimagination." And so it seems. I imagine or perceive my students as intelligent, good and valuable beings. I amconvinced that if I can convince themthat that is true, then I can teach themanything. B© Copyright 1989 by Loretta A. Hawkins21ORFIELDContinued from page 9lieve it— they thought this was something only graduate students did. It'sexciting, too, because it puts your education to use. You're studying thingsthat really affect policy."Faith Paul, a doctoral student inpublic policy and education who hasworked as an associate with Orfield onseveral projects, concurs that "this kindof research provides experience thatyou could simply not get otherwise... you begin to look at problemsfrom a different vantage point, in designing research and experiencingwhat are the practical solutions toidentifying and obtaining data."Beyond that," said Paul, "I thinkOrfield's students learn from his example, in the intense caring that motivateshis research, coupled with the scholarly capacity to see things as they are, andthe ability to communicate that understanding in words that are so clear thatthe public will also understand andwant to take action."As a graduate student in politicalscience at the University of Chicagoduring the turbulent 1960s, Orfield wasgiven a similar chance to learn about theAmerican political process firsthandthrough field research conducted under J. David Greenstone, AM'60,PhD'63, the William A. Benton Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Political Science. As partof that research, he spent an unforgettable summer in Watts and east LosAngeles when those areas "blew up" in1965 during violent rioting by inner-city blacks. That experience, combined with his impressions of Chicagowhile attending the University, provided a major impetus for what later became a primary topic of his research:segregation."Being raised in Minnesota," Orfield commented, "gave me a very different, much less jaded view of the possibility of political and social changethan I probably would have had growing up in Chicago or a northeastern city.I saw a society that operated withoutsubstantial corruption. Intellectualshad an active role in public life. Therewere, at that time, some pretty progres sive attitudes in both parties, and certainly a feeling that discrimination wasjust not right in American society."Arriving in Chicago, after receivinghis bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota in 1963, "was like coming to Babylon— seeing a governmentthat was machine-controlled and a society that was totally stratified racially, "said Orfield. He believes that Chicagowas a leader among several key northern cities that he says blocked anti-segregation reforms which were initiated and enforced throughout theSouth during the administration ofLyndon Johnson in the mid- to late1960s.THE DURABILITY OFthose reforms is evidenced in a recentstudy by Orfield indicating desegregationin the South has remained stable, despite "eight years ofbitter attack by the Justice Department," which Orfield said used its authority in the 1980s "to go into federalcourt and advocate resegregation ofschool districts all over the South.""In Georgia, for example," Orfieldsaid, "the Justice Department is tryingto dissolve a number of desegregationorders in cases where the local schoolboards did not ask them to do that ... indicating that it had taken root quitedeeply and there wasn't a great local desire to move backwards. We actuallyhave a case where I think the nationaladministration is to the right of theSoutherners, and has opened issuesthat people really don't desire to havereopened in many cases."Orfield's 1987 study, "School Segregation in the 1980s," indicated that,overall, the states with the highest levelof integration tended to be those wheresegregation was once state law. Typically, these states have large metropolitanareas where courts have ordered theend to a dual system of educationthrough busing. For example, in bothDelaware and Kentucky, which led the"most stably integrated states" list,court orders required extensive busingplans for Wilmington and Louisvillethat included both their inner-citiesand surrounding suburbs.The study, based on 1984 statisticsfrom the U.S. Department of Education, also found that northern stateshad the most racially segregated schools in the country, with Illinoisleading the list, followed by Michiganand New York. These states have largemetropolitan areas characterized by racially divided neighborhoods and alack of desegregation plans, accordingto the study.In Illinois, the study found that 85percent of all black students attended"predominantly minority schools,"(those schools in which minoritiesmake up more than 50 percent of students), exceeding the national averageof 63.5 percent. Figures from the1986-87 school year in Chicago showthat 81.3 percent of the black studentsand 50.2 percent of Hispanic studentsattended schools that were 90 percentor more minority. Of the total numberof students in Chicago public schools,only 14 percent are white."It may well be," said Orfield, "thatthe children being socialized and educated in these underclass schools areeven more comprehensively isolatedfrom mainstream middle-class societythan were the black children of theSouth whose problems led to the longbattle over segregated education inDixie."Because minorities are dominatingurban core populations in increasingnumbers, Orfield said the only meansfor most metropolitan areas to effectively integrate their school districts isthrough a policy of busing across cityand suburban lines. That option wasdealt a severe blow in 1974, however,when the Supreme Court ruled in a Detroit case against mandatory city-suburban busing plans, unless it can beproven that educational and neighborhood segregation in an area is the directresult of a government policy or law.Despite this ruling, lawsuits resulting in court-ordered city-suburban busing have since been successfully filed inMilwaukee, Indianapolis and St. Louis.Other cities are opting to design voluntary city-suburban exchanges, according to Orfield, who is currently workingwith officials and educators in bothMinnesota and Connecticut on developing such exchange policies in metropolitan areas of their states."Given the reality of residentialsegregation, the only way to get kids inany of our big cities in integratedschools is by transferring them someplace else," said Orfield. "So whenyou're questioning busing, you're really questioning whether or not schoolsshould be integrated at all, because in22 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE /WINTER 1989many cases it's the only answer."I'm not in favor of all busingplans, " he added. "I'm in favor of plansthat reach as much of the housing market as possible and are related to residential desegregation strategies and toeducational change."As a court-appointed expert in a1980 civil rights case in St. Louis, Orfield helped design an integration planthat attempted to address the problemsof both school and housing segregation. Among its features was a provision that exempted all residentially integrated areas in the city from busing.Neighborhoods accepting subsidizedhousing in a white area were alsoexempted.The resulting court order also required city housing agencies to prepareplans to consider the impact of their decisions on schools. This last provision,he said, was included to avert what hesees as the common failure of mostsubsidized housing plans by buildinghomes in locations which actually haveincreased school segregation. "Unfortunately," he said, "the court has notyet followed up on this order."Federal funding for subsidizedhousing has been cut dramatically inthe past decade, Orfield pointed out,but even when funding is available, thecommon strategy among city plannershas been to build housing in existingghettos, "and all they're doing is building newer slums, and in each case theyare condemning the families who livethere to a miserable existence.""What possible good is it to putnewer housing in an area that has segregated schools, no commercial infrastructure, no jobs, private housing that'seither being burned or abandoned, andpeople who are terrified to go out afterdark?"Once an area is resegregated andghettoized, helping to bring it backusually requires massive investment—the size of which dwarfs the amount ofgovernment funds that are currentlyavailable. Whether the nation will commit the creative and financial resourcesnecessary to reverse this trend is uncertain, but Orfield is encouraged by the"tripling or quadrupling" level of interest in his research during the past fouryears— an interest which he said is"coming from places that I never wouldhave expected.""People are beginning to recognizehow dramatically this nation is changing demographically, " said Orfield. "In our public schools, we've had a declineof one-sixth in white students since thelate 1960s, a small increase of black students, a doubling of Hispanic studentsand huge increases of Asian and American Indian students. Already, California has a predominantly non-whitepublic school system statewide, andwe're going towards such a system inthe metropolitan Chicago area veryrapidly."If you're going to run the army, orthe telephone system, or the bankingsystem— if you're going to do anythingon a large scale in this society— you haveto think that it's not a good thing thatgrowing sectors of our society are increasingly cut off from opportunity,and increasingly separated socially andeconomically from the mainstream."I think that leaders in some of ourmajor institutions, those who have anycapacity to plan for more than a fewyears into the future, are beginning torealize that we're going through a hugechange and we're going to become amulti-racial society to a degree that'sunimaginable for our grandparents.And our children will be living in thatsociety."ORFIELD BELIEVESthis growing awareness of the dangersof a segregated society actually maylead to a resurgencein the movement towards integration"from the top down" before reachingthe ghettos and barrios. "These movements (from the bottom up) tend tocome when people have hope; theydon't tend to come when people see thegovernment as being hostile, " said Orfield, adding, "we haven't had an administration since Lyndon Johnson'sthat has done anything substantial topromote integration." This lack of initiative has spread to the state and locallevels of government, said Orfield,even among minority politicians, someof whom passively accept segregationas a means of maintaining their politicalpower bases.Because of this vacuum in leadership, Orfield said, many whites still believe that nothing more needs to bedone in terms of desegregation andending discrimination. Even more disturbing is that many of the victims ofthat process of segregation have apparently drawn the same conclusions— at least judging by a recent survey whichshowed that black inner-city highschool students actually rated theirschools higher than their white suburban counterparts."It shows that the worse the schoolis, the better the kids think that they'rebeing prepared," said Orfield, whoconducted an analysis of the surveywith College senior Douglas Hartman."In these schools where half or more ofthe students drop out and the averageachievement is at the 20th percentile,they think they're going to college, andwe know they're not."They don't know because theyreally live in another society and at acertain stage the victims of the processof segregation become victims to the extreme that they don't even know whatthe rest of society is like. They don'teven realize that they've been cut offcomprehensively from opportunity toit, and they think they're being given anequal chance."That's the final stage of separationof these societies— it's terrifying as wesee aspirations that have no relationship to reality whatsoever."Journalists often sardonically remark that if there were no bad newsthey'd be out of business, and perhapsthe same could be said of social and political scientists. Still, one senses thatGary Orfield wouldn't mind if his officephone didn't ring quite so much.It would be nice to have the time todo more purely academic research, headmitted, "but I've held the viewthroughout my academic and professional life that it's not necessary orhealthy to separate one's role as a citizen from one's role as a scholar. As longas you don't claim misleadingly thatyou have a scientific basis for what arejust personal opinions or don't politicize your systematic research in someway by sorting the data— as long asyou're willing to be very careful aboutthose kinds of things— then I think thatbeing involved in both roles just enriches each."I think that universities are privileged institutions that have special protections in this society, and we are givenextraordinary freedom that we shoulduse to deal with issues that are fundamental to society, and that we shouldtry to communicate whatever we discover to people in the society who needto know, whether they want to know ornot. I believe that's a very, very usefulfunction." H23CHICAGO JOURNALHUGHES MEDICALINSTITUTE DEDICATEDThe University's Howard HughesMedical Institute, created to furtherresearch and teaching in molecularand cell biology, was formally dedicated in November.The institute, one of 29 nationwide, is located in recently renovatedspace on the first three floors of therlospitals' Peck Pavilion. It was established with a grant of more than$7 million from the Howard HughesMedical Institute, the nation's largestprivate supporter of medical research."The Hughes Institute providesquite a special partnership, " saidSamuel Hellman, Dean of the Biological Sciences. "Because of the institute's excellent facilities, and becauseits members are also faculty members,the institute will help us attractand retain very distinguishedresearchers."Donald Steiner, MD'56, SM'56,the A.N. Pritzker Professor in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology andsenior investigator in the institute,said the institute will serve to enhanceresearch in several areas of molecularscience and medicine. Steiner, one ofonly five senior investigators namedamong the 29 Hughes Institutes, explained that federal research supportis usually not adequate to keep laboratories supplied with new equipmentthat is becoming increasingly necessary in molecular biology.In addition to strengthening basicscience studies, the center is also expected to increase the interaction between clinical and basic research laboratories, permitting molecular studiesto be applied as rapidly as possible tomedical practice.TWO NEW TRUSTEESELECTED TO BOARDReatha Clark King, executive director of the General Mills Foundationand a noted figure in higher education, and Sharon Percy Rockefeller, amember of the board of directors for Reatha Clark King Sharon Percy Rockefellerthe Public Broadcasting Service whohas championed quality programmingon public television, have been electedtrustees of the University.King, SM'60, PhD'63, is the former president of Metropolitan StateUniversity in St..

One might callit "Chicago: 101."So that they can begin to feel comfortable with the public transportation system, many of the groups take thebus or train to and from their destinations, which might include: an elevator trip to the top of the Sears Tower;dinner at a Greektown restaurant,complete with bellydancers; a visit to aChicago institution founded by somefamous alumni of the University— theSecond City comedy revue; or a leisurely window-shopping stroll downthe Magnificent Mile (Michigan Avenue), capped by a nighttime boatcruise along Lake Michigan.Photos by Michael P.

I would love to find myselfsomeday sitting on the board— that'show strongly I feel about the place."On Friday, October 7, the executivecouncil of the Alumni Association,which includes representatives of theAlumni Association, the Alumni FundBoard, and the National AlumniSchools Committee, met at RobieHouse.Alumni attending the NationalVolunteer Leadership Conferencewere welcomed on Saturday byEdward L. Anderson, PhB'46, SM'49,president of the Alumni Association,and Warren Heemann, vice presidentfor Development and AlumniRelations.At a session entitled "ProgramPlanning: Nuts and Bolts," ThomasSheehan, Jr., MBA 63, president of theUniversity of Chicago Club of the SanFrancisco Bay Area, gave a presentation on "The Road to Success: Evolution of a Club." As part of Sheehan'sblueprint for the success of an alumniclub, he urged that club presidents setup goals, and draw up a concrete planfor achieving those goals. His four-point "Road to Success" included amission to increase participation,expand programs, improve communications with alumni and strengthenfinancial resources for the club.One of the reasons for the SanFrancisco Club's success, explainedSheehan, was the group's willingnessto offer a geographically dispersed setof activities and events. This enabledalumni in the Bay Area to attendevents closer to home. Sheehan recommended this practice for any alumniclub in a large city.The San Francisco Club offersregularly scheduled events, Sheehansaid, but it also maintains the ability tocapitalize on ad hoc events, such as avisit by the president of the University,or another key person from the University, to the Bay Area.Club presidents examined withinterest The Maroon Apple, a new newsletter of the University of Chicago Clubof New York. The editor, Jennifer L.Magnabosco, AB'85, AM'85, explained that she had hired a professional graphic designer to do the layout and keyline. For each issue,camera-ready copy is sent to the University Office of Alumni Relations,where staff send the keyline out for27reproduction and mail the finishednewsletter to members.A lively discussion took place at asession called "Racing Towards theFuture: Raising Awareness of ChicagoAmong New Graduates."

"We welcome them first, then weask them to do something. The clubofficers explain what the opportunitiesare for service, and we tell them abouta consortium of local alumni clubscalled the Ivy Connection, in which weparticipate." The Ivy Connection consists of alumni of five top universities,who hold joint gatherings.Jennifer Magnabosco advised that"we should let new alumni know whatthe benefits are for joining a Universityof Chicago alumni club. Let themknow they can use it for networking,for professional contacts. Invite themto non-fund raising events, and nevermind asking them for money. Analumni program should help themunderstand how special it was tohave been a part of the University ofChicago."Another participant cautioned:"Don't overdo trying to reach youngalumni too soon. After you're out,absence does make the heart growfonder. But if a brand new alumnus/afinds a letter in the mailbox when he orshe gets home from graduation askingfor money, it's frightening."In a session called "ReunionRoundup, " volunteers discussed potential ideas for reunion at the time ofthe University's centennial, in1991-1992.The session addressed the question: Why do people come back to thequadrangles for reunion? The volunteers were asked to quantify whatpercentage of time they would like tobe involved in different activities atreunion. They indicated that they would like to spend 90 percent of theirtime at reunion visiting with formerclassmates and faculty. Intellectualpursuits, such as lectures or mockclasses, were cited as the second mostpreferred activity.In this context, Amy Goerwitz,AB'88, reunion director, announcedthat Carl Sagan, AB'54, SB'55, SM'56,PhD '60, the David Duncan Professorof Astrophysics and director of theLaboratory for Planetary Studies atCornell University, will give a lectureon June 3 at the 1989 Reunion.Some of the group suggested thatreunions should be held especially forthe graduate divisions. However, noconsensus was reached on whetherthese reunions should be held by division or department, and by graduationyear or by five or ten-year groupings.Alumni volunteers indicated thatthey would like the College, divisionaland possibly the professional schoolreunions to be held at the same time.Some suggested moving the date ofreunion from the first weekend in Juneto later in the summer, or even to September, so that returning alumni couldstay in the dormitories.Regarding College reunions, alumni felt that the Alumni Relations staffshould offer a 45th Reunion and possibly a 30th and 15th Reunion. Somealumni proposed dispensing with the5th Reunion. (At present, the University sponsors 5th, 10th, 20th, 25th,35th, 40th, 50th, 55th, and 60th College reunions.) There also was considerable discussion about "cluster" reunions in which several class yearswould be invited to the same reunion,to enable alumni to see more of theirformer classmates.One suggestion concerning thereunion schedule was that the Intraf a-ternity Sing— currently held at the endof Saturday's activities— be moved tolate afternoon, because older alumnisometimes find it hard to sit throughan event that late after a day of strenuous activity. (There is a precedent forthe earlier time: the I-F Sing was heldearlier on reunion days in the 1920s.)In addition, some of the classes holdother events, and the I-F Sing preventsfraternity members from participatingin those events.Asked to suggest what types ofevents they might like to be held at areunion, (in addition to events for their classes) alumni listed, amongother ideas, convocations, dinnerdances, dormitory tours, fireworks,lectures and mock classes.WEST RECEIVES HONORARYDOCTOR OF LAWS DEGREEB.

"It becomes a catalyst forscholarship."According to Barbara Van Deven-ter, the Library's assistant director forcollection development, Darwin and theNovelists: Patterns of Science in VictorianFiction (Harvard University Press,1988), by George Levine of RutgersUniversity, was selected for the distinction of number five-million. VanDeventer said the book was chosenbecause it had "substantial scholarlyvalue, was not overly esoteric or rare, would frequently be used by patrons,and would embody the spirit of Chicago's collection habits." Although thevolume will be kept in the RegensteinLibrary, it represents the five-millionthvolume in the entire University librarysystem, including the John CrerarLibrary and the D'Angelo Law Library.GOULD TO COORDINATEUNIVERSITY PLANNINGJohn P.

"I amgrateful that he has agreed to lendsome of these same talents to takingthe planning for the University forward, engaging our entire communityin looking beyond the centennial to theshape and scope of our activities in the next century."Gould, MBA'63, PhD'66, went toWashington in 1969 as assistant toGeorge Shultz, then Secretary ofLabor. When Shultz became Directorof the Office of Management andBudget, Gould became his consultantfor economic affairs. He returned toChicago in 1970 as associate professorand was promoted to professor in1974. He was named dean in 1983 andDistinguished Service Professor in1984.PLEASE!

Then we might respect his on-site advice about how to ensurethe survival of our tiny country.Margery Stone Zeitlin, PhB'48Jerusalem, IsraelEditor:I am writing in response to the article inthe SUMMER/88 edition of the Magazine titled "Israel's Dilemma" by Alan Gewirth. Itis quite clear that the author does his verybest to be objective about a difficult andemotional situation. In spite of best intentions, the article neglected some points ofcontention that are so crucial as to put intoquestion his optimistic prescription forpeace.Most important, and, startlingly notmentioned in the seven-point proposedpeace treaty, is the status of Jerusalem. Thestatus of this city is not considered to be inquestion by virtually any political party inIsrael. Jerusalem is, and always will be, as faras the Jews are concerned, the undividedcapital of Israel. There is no doubt that bothLikud and Labor agree on this. It is safe tosay that no Jewish government will enterinto any sort of negotiations whatsoever onthe status of Jerusalem.It is also clear that no imaginable Palestinian entity or state can content itself withthe so-called "occupied" territory exceptJerusalem. While many here believe thatthe PLO and the Palestinians still retaintheir claim on all of Israel, hardly anyonecan believe that they will be satisfied withNablus and Hebron and just forget aboutJerusalem.Another disturbing implication of theauthor's argument is that Israel is responsible for the political unrest in the area by itscontinued occupation of Judea, Samaria andGaza. This implication underlies the entireargument since the supposed solution to theproblem lies in Israel's withdrawal from these areas. From the establishment of Israelin 1948 until the Six-Day War in 1967, Judea,Samaria and Gaza were controlled by Arabsand not Jews. There were, nevertheless,large numbers of terrorist attacks against Israelis launched from these areas and severalmilitary encounters including the War of Attrition and the Sinai Campaign.At any time during those 20 years a Palestinian state could have been proclaimed.Why wasn't it?What then is the solution? It may comeas a discomforting notion to those of us whogrew up with the movie-version of real life,where everything has a happy ending, thatthere probably is no solution to the problem.We won't give up Jerusalem and they won'taccept a solution without Jerusalem.The present situation of tension between Israel and its Arab neighbors willprobably continue indefinitely, with periods of relative peace and periods of outrightwar. Such a situation is not all that abnormal. How many times have France and Germany battled or England and France or Russia and everyone in Eastern Europe? Howabout the many conflicts between Japan andKorea?Whether or not Israel retains Judea, Samaria or Gaza or whether we relinquishthem, nothing, in the long run will change.Mark Herskovitz, AB'78Jerusalem, IsraelETHIOPIA "IS NOTA BLACK COUNTRY"Editor:In a letter written by Dr. Robert Blair entitled "Still Flogging a Dead Horse" andpublished in the FALL/88 issue of the Magazine reference is made to Ethiopia having a"Marxist- Stalinist black government." Hemaybe advised that Ethiopia is not a "black"country. According to the National GeographicWorld Atlas, the preponderant population ofthat country is of Semitic-Hasmitic originand only about six percent Negro.The situation in Ethiopia is unfortunatebut has no connection with that in SouthAfrica.Randall L. Thompson, MD'40Black Mountain, NCEditor:The Republic of South Africa is the onlystate in the world today in which it is formalgovernment policy to use so-called racial differences to deny otherwise universally accepted human, political, economic, and social rights. In the post-Holocaust world, such official racism is simply unacceptable.Nevertheless, Dr. Robert Blair's evidentdisbelief that divestiture could be "a vitaltool in ending apartheid in South Africa"(Letters FALL/88) calls for response, for it reflects a widespread misunderstanding ofthe subject.Divestiture does indeed "simply" involve selling stock to another owner; its immediate economic effects are minimal. Itshould not be confused with disinvestment,which involves withdrawal of U.S. companies from South Africa, and which can have avariety of economic consequences.Why then bother about divestiture? Because as Dr. Blair himself points out, theworld is filled with political conflict, anddivestiture's political impact can be quitesubstantial. In South Africa today the fundamental question is political; who shallhold power, an entrenched white minorityor the people as a whole? In this context,divestiture by prestigious institutions likethe University of Chicago is a powerful political statement and has immediate effects.For one, it tells South Africa's black community—which has for decades struggled forpolitical rights, and which has specificallyasked us to sell those shares— that we are ontheir side. Second, it tells South Africanwhites that we find their social and politicalsystem morally repugnant and indefensible,that we want nothing to do with them, andthat in the event of open civil conflict we willnot come to their aid. Finally, it tells themthat in the late 20th century, civilization demands a more equitable distribution of power than they have been willing to allow, andthat basic human rights and human dignitycannot rest on the color of one's skin.This is not just hand waving; moral andpolitical pressure has effects, it "works."Witness the black leadership's continuingcall for divestiture, the South African government's strident campaigns against itoverseas, and its censorship of news on thesubject at home. Divestiture makes the regime very uncomfortable. South Africa's recent elections indicate that it has a long andtorturous path yet to go. But clear externalstatements of the white community's pariahstatus can accelerate internal recognitionthat it must negotiate changes and shareboth formal power and the nation's wealthwith the black majority.The University of Chicago needs to catchup with the other institutions which have already taken a leadership role in this process.Until it does, it will continue to hear fromalumni calling for divestiture.David L.
