AthenaeumEditor’s Note: We have a healthyparental interest in our progeny,“Me Incorporated,’’ which was cre¬ated in our last issue hy that strug¬gling young aesthete, James T. Far¬rell. That others share our solicitudeis evinced hy the following commun¬ication sent by registered mail to“The Maroon’’ office from the suiteof a downtown financial trust. Weare fascinated at the ready show ofloyalty to the Cause of Art:Mr. James T. Farrell,The Daily-Weekly Maroon,University of Chicago,My dear Mr. Farrel:Your proposed corporation for theadvancetment of yourself and yourart, interests me ,both as a finacierand as a patron and creator of arts.The enterprise, as you present it inthis week’s Maroon, appeals to myexpert financier’s judgment as anextremely worthy and inevitablyprofitable investment. So certain amI, in fact, of the intrinsic solidity ofthe venture that I am enclosing withthe letter a government voucher inthe amount of one cent ($.01) tocover my subscription to one (1)share of common stock in ME IN¬CORPORATED. I must, however,for niy own protection, make onenecessary reservation: that unlessyour enterprise is a properly organ¬ized corporation duly incorporatedunder the laws of the State of Illi¬nois, you are to return - the fullamount of my subscription immedi¬ately. As whole-hearted as my con¬fidence in your project may be, I,nevertheless, do not care to risk myinvestment funds in a venture whichis liable at the very start to embroilitself in litigation and legal complica¬tions.Your outline of ME INCORPOR¬ATED, on the face of it, fails totake into account the state require¬ments for incorporation, for, whileyou have elected yourself presidentby a unanimous ballot of the votingstockholders, you have apparentlyneglected to provide a vice-presidenta secretary, and a treasurer. Thisoversight may have been due to youradmitted deficiency in economics. Inthat case I would advise your con¬sulting with me or with Profe.s8orDouglass.And if I may presume further, asa non-voting stockholder, to offer afew suggestions, I would recommendthat for the sake of prestige in artcircles you elect Sterling North andStanley Newman honorary vice-presidents, and Nick Matsoukas sec¬retary at a bi-weekly salary of sev¬enty-five cents to be drawn from aspecial haircut fund.But above all 1 recommend that Ibe tendered the office of treasurer.My meager compensatory require¬ments and my outstanding financio-administrative abilities make me theideal candidate for the position. Theonly remuneration I ask is a smallpart, say one-tenth, of your gineticinspiration. Furthermore, I feel thatI would prove an invaluable aid inhandling the surplus of your dateswhich you require as sex-substancefor your writings, and which I ampositive will, after your recent eleva-t’on to the presidency of ME IN¬CORPORATED, come to you in asuper-abundance. I have had consid¬erable experience in that particularphase of your work, and I offer youmy services as your assistant withmy personal assurance that yourclients will be taken care ofto their own and your extremesatisfaction. I am indeed so confi¬dent of \ny ability to deal with thefair sex, in all their obvious andeven subtle unfairness, that I am will¬ing to submit myself for a sixmonths’ trial entirely without com¬pensation.My motives in thus offering myservices to the corporation emanatesolely from my love of art for itsown sake. Whatever personal inter¬ests I may manifest in my connec¬tion with your noble venture are asunvitiated by a desire of self- ag-grandizment and personal glory as(Continued on page 2) RECENT GIFTSTO UNIVERSITYAID NEJ/V WORKSpecial Donations TotalSixteen ThousandDollarsRecent gifts to the University ofChicago for special purposes, total¬ing $16,734, are announced by theUniversity Board of Trustees.Prank G.

Judd said yesterdayafternoon, in a lecture on the “Reor¬ganization of American Education”that a saving of two years in elemen¬tary school work was actually in ef¬fect, and might be utilized to cut outtwo years of higher education.In 1927, according to Prof. Judd,the Commission on the Length ofElementary School Education cameto the conclusion that American ele¬mentary schools were doing in sixyears what twenty-five years beforethey had done in eight, and thatconsequently work of real high-school character might begin and(Ontinued on page 4) tirely cancer-free.”3. “If one parent has cancer andthe other is entirely cancer-free, theimmediate offspring themselves arefree, but they can transmit suscep¬tibility to cancer to some of theiroffspring.”4. “If both parents are cancerous,the offspring inherit the tendencyto be susceptible.”“Observations in mice line upclosely with the behavoir of humancancer.

Bastian Editorial Assistant)Merwin Rosenberg Editorial AssistantJames J. McMahon Business AssistantRobert McCarthy Business AssistantMilton Peterson Editorial AssistantHARNESSING PEGASUSIn these days when the high powered motor car is swiftly mak¬ing poor old Dobbin’s usefulness a thing of the past, some of ushave been wondering not only what to do with Dobbin, but alsowith Pegasus. Now Pegasus was a very good fellow in his time,but of late he has been going to seed. He started to take on weighta few years ago in a way that was disastrous to his owners. Andno amount of exercise, steam baths or rub-downs could possiblyput him in condition for another flight. Finally he became so fatthat under no circumstances could he be induced to leave thegound.Stanley took us out to the barn the other day and said: ‘‘TTiere’sPeg^asus. 1 don’t know what we’re going to do with him. His up¬keep costs us a lot of money, but we don’t like to sell him to asoap factory—there’s too much sentiment for th^it—but—but—what’re we going to do?”We didn't know what Stanley was going to do with Pegasus.We walked around in front of Pegasus and gave him an apple thatwe had brought especially for him. He demured at first as thoughhe were bashful. "Go ahead,” we said, “it’s good for yourdigestion” Pegasus took the apple and munched it dolefully,looking at us despairingly with an expression that showed plainlythat he was going to burst into tears. Poor Pegasus was worriedover his condition too. After all, this business of going to a soapfactory was not the future that Pegasus in his youth had looked for¬ward to.For the next two weeks, things went bad with Pegasus. Stanleycaught him trying to commit suicide by drowning his woes in 55 th*Street gin. Stanley took the bottle away and decided that if Pe¬gasus was going, Stanley was going too. With one arm aroundPegasus’ neck, Stanley wept.“Both toether, old fellow ... a few drops will do the trick. . .”But at this point, in strode a figure whose name bears the markof classical antiquity. “What the hell—what are you trying to do?Don’t you know you’ll kill yourself?” inquired Nick. “Not that 1care about you. 1 want to buy the horse.”Pegsus pricked up his ears. Even the garbage business seemedwelcome, he thought.“I’m in the oil business,” stated Nick. “Sure, all 1 do is spreadit on thick and collect the money 1 make a lot that way. 1 don’thave to work to go to school. It’s an easy racket.” He had sold alot of stock already, he said. All the professors fell for it. But hehad to have a horse, he explained.Stanley needed money, too, and Nick’s racket promised a lotof fun.So Pegasus was harnessed to an oil can and Stanley becamea partner in the firm. At the present time the company is arrang¬ing to buy a new barn for Pegasus over on 63rd Street.ATHENAEUM(Continued from page 1)are those of the most sincere andlofty principled of the campus intel¬ligentsia. I have sacrificed every¬thing at the altar of Apollo. Ihave let my hair grow for monthsat a stretch; I have stomached themost virulent of synthetic concoc¬tions; I have lived and preached theemancipated life in the face of themost vicious and slanderous condem¬nation; and I have even takencourses at the University of Chicagro.Yet I persisted in my martyrdom,consoled in my soul’s assurance that’tis for the noblest of causes. I havebecome habituated to the direst ofprivation and the bitterness of bour-geoeis denunciation. I can and willendure anything for my art; andthat is why I offer myself unhesitat¬ingly to your wretched company. We, the persecuted few, must hangtogether or hang separately. Thebond of mutual suffering draws usinto a common circle of defenseagainst the remorseless fanaticismof the great unwashed horde. Theworld must be made safe for art;and we have been appointed thesaviours by divine destiny. We musthurl the defiance of righteousness inthe faces of the mad, blood-lustshrieking, moronic mob. We mustendure the hell of a thousand in¬quisitions with the fortitude of theChristian martyrs; but we must goto our slow, torturous deaths to¬gether, as one man ....And incidentally, Mr. Parrel, 1have my own literary creations topropagate, and I know of no surerway (at the present time) of doingso, than to ally myself with a manof your genius.Yours for the Cause of Causes,C.

Many intelligent independentretailers and wholesalers have al¬ready acknowledged the soundnessof the chain principle and probab¬ility is that another decade will wit¬ness a general recognition of theplace of the chain in retailing.”Chain store methods are suscep¬tible to abuses, the chief of whichis the danger of monopoly, accord¬ing to the Chicago investigator.“There is no reason to believe thatin the sixteen states comprising thenortheast section of the countryabout 50 per cent of the retail groc¬ery business is chain controlled. Asubstantial part of this 50 per centis in the hands of a few large chains.With mergers taking place in in¬creased number, with certain bankingfirms acquiring interests in chainswhich seem to be independent, andwith chains themselves showing someevidence of a growing appreciationof the unprofitablenes of price* com¬petition, one must at least admit thepossibility that chains will becomemonopolistic unless restrained fromso doing.”In 1920, chain stores were doingbut a small percentage of their pres¬ent volume of business, Mr. Palmer’sstudy indicates. Grocery chains did30 per cent of their current business,variety chains about 40 per cent,and drug chains about 40 per cent.Shoe chains, however, had 75 percent of their present volume in 1920and tobacco chains about 85 percent. In eleven cities ranging insize from Fargo, North Dakota, toChicagfo, 33 per cent of the totaldepartment store business, 35 percent of the tobacco business, 73 percent of the gasoline and oil business,33 per cent of the furniture andhouse-furnishings business, and 33per cent of the radio business v;asdone by chains in 1926. Of the totalretail volume of the eleven cities,28.7 per cent was chain controlled.HALF OF STUDENTS BODYEARNS WAY^(Continued from page 1)foy the University as waiters, clerks,libiary attendants, messengers, etc.Extramural employment of studentsranged from the traditional jobs asstenographers, tutors, salesnien,watchmen, laborers, ushers, chauf¬feurs, ^•musicians, reporters andhouseworkers to bricklayers, investi¬gators, chimney sweeps, lecturers,and professional athletes.

Maynard,graduate student of the University. Ina large number of precincts the re¬turns are “patently fraudulent,” Mr.Maynard says in his thesis, and thereis plenty of evidence of indifferenceand stupidity on the part of electionjudges.The study is based on a careful an¬alysis of the 1926 referendurp, whichincluded six propositions.' These werea constitutional amendment on taxa¬tion, a sounding of sentiment on theVolstead Act, lease of the Illinois andMichigan canal, road bonds, jail bonds,and daylight saving.In analyzing the official returns,Mr, Maynard found that in ninety-eight precincts all the voters had aunaminity of opinion on all six pro¬posals, a circumstance which led himto recount jhe ballots in 56 scatteredprecincts selected to give a fair samp,ling of the city. The scrutiny of theofficial returns led to the conclusionthat about 25 per cent of all the pre¬cinct returns were patently fraudulent.The recount in the fifty-six pre¬cincts showed an error* in half of thecases of less than 10 per cent; in overone-fourth of the precincts, the erroramounted to 25 per cent or more.These errors in amount did not canceleach other but were found to be cum¬ulative. There were errors not only inamount but in the ratios of those vot¬ing “for” and “against” mea.sures..These differences varied in the 6 pro-|positions from 6 TO of a per cent to j9 and 1 TO per cent. In 8 and four-tenths per cent of the precinct returnsthe will of the electorate was reversedin the official figures In some pre¬cincts errors on individual measuresran as high as 70 per cent.In the recount of the 56 precincts,the lowest error, four per cent, was inthe proposition concerning daylightsaving, while the two propositions inwhich the error was greatest werethose of the jail bonds, 9.1 per cent,and the road bonds, 8.5 per cent, whichtogether involved an expenditure ofeighteen million dollars of taxpayers’money."The reason for these tremendouserrors seems to lie in the indifferenceof the election official and the precinctwatchers in regard to the outcome ofthe ‘little ballot’ vote, combined witha certain amount of laziness when con¬fronted with a long proposition ballotafter a tedious day at the polls,” thereport says. In occasional instancesthey were probably a result of ignor.ance or plain stupidity in making outthe form required by the city.”Tow«r Theater toPresent “The LastOf Mrs. Cheyney”The melodramatic thriller, “TheMysterious Dr. Fu Manchu,” con¬cludes its run at the Tower theatreon 63rd Street and Harper Avenuethis Friday, and it will be replacedby another popular play, selected asone of July’s six best cinemas, “TheLast of Mrs. Cheyney,” featuringNorma Shearer in her second alltalking production.“The last of Mrs. Cheyney” isSidney Howard’s comedy romance ofsociety crooks in a titled English¬man’s home, the drama in which InaClaire starred for almost two yearson the speaking stage.

As a business cycleregresses it is shown that the partyloses votes steadily, and many con¬gressmen are turned out of office.This was particularly true in 1884and 1908 during the depressionsthat followed the business peaks of1882 and 1906.”With charts showing the relationbetween crops and elections in thecongressional elections of nine wes¬tern states, Tibbits demonstratedthat the business cycle is the domin¬ating influence in the shift of votes.The production changes in the man¬ual output of wheat, corn and oatsshowed no correlation between poorcrops and the ousting of the party.“Even in the agricultural states,” hesaid, “shifts of votes follow theshifts of the business cycle.

The mod¬ern man has neither taste nor timefor heavy and elaborate meals.”“—vita excolator"—that life may be enriched,”80 runs the motto. What enrichesit—makes it so much worth whileas musk!

But wheneventually two of these hybrid car¬riers were mated, cancer has appear¬ed in the next generation. Trans¬lated into terms of human experi¬ence this means that if the facts formice are true for men, all cancerscan be ruled out of a family fora thousand years or more. her, the committee on reservations,composed of Lucy Arnett, AnneCraig, Jeanette Holmes, HelenWright, Mai'garet Mead, and RuthLane, and the publicity committee,Margaret Harrison, Florence Ziegler,H.

This is the great hopefor the future of humanity. The wayto educate is to make generallyknown the facts and operation ofheredity, so that man need not beblind as to what characteristics he istransmitting to his posterity.“Moreover, we need to permit ex¬amination after death, for a personmay have a cancer without dyingof it. Examination after death isthe invariable rule in laboratories,and post-mortems would give theexact facts concerning all diseasesin man. If these facts were thenkept in permanent record, we wouldknow where to start. I have con¬sistently and completely preventedall occurrence of cancer in hundredsof families of mice in the laboratory.It is time that the public should re¬quire accurate data concerning can¬cer in man to be collected and keptpermanently. It would open the wayto elimination of cancer ,and elim¬ination is vastly more importantthan cure.“Where there has been cancer ina family, especial care should betaken to avoid all types of chronicirritation, such as unhealed wounds,slight chronic burns such as may becaused by foods that are too hot,jagged teeth, sores in the mouth,slight bruises or other injuries to thebreast, and lacerations from child¬bearing. Should the facts of hered¬ity and of the results of chronic irri¬tation to susceptive tissues prove tohe the same in man as they are inmice, then care in the selection ofcancer-free mates and avoidance ofall forms of irritation should domuch immediately toward eliminat¬ing cancer from the human race.”CLASSIFIED ADSINSTRUCTORS WANTED—Forall departments in universities, col¬leges, normals and accredited schoolsRegister at once.
