It will be the second produc¬tion in which the Dramatic associa¬tion has collaborated with NapierW’ilt’s American drama class, FrankO’Hara’s dramatic interpretationclass and Mrs. Minna Schmidt’s cos¬tume workshop in presenting an his¬torical .American play. Last year thesame groups presented a revival ofWilliam Gillette’s “Secret Service’’.Annual Spring Show“Uncle Tom’s Cabin’’ will be theannual, popular spring presentationof the Dramatic association. A castof over 28 actors has been assembled,and the play will be given in as closean aproximation of manner of theold touring companies as possible.Profes.«or.«; Percy Holmes Boyntonand Napier Wilt will assist in histor¬ical details. It is expected that theUniversity Orchestra will play dur¬ing the performance giving those ae-lection.s originally associated with theplay and the University choir willin the scene where-little Fvaascends to heaven. During the inter¬mission pieces contemporary with thefirst production will be rendered, aswas done at the presentation of“Secret Service’’. There will besome 800 seats at fifty cents a seatand 300 at one dollar.The play is a dramatization ofHarriet Beecher Stowe’s celebratednovel, the dramatic adaptation ofwhich wa.s made by Charles WesternTaylor. It was first presented at thePurdy’s National Theatre, New Yorkon August 23, 1852. At the firstpresentation the piece only consumedan hour and was a failure, closing af¬ter a run of only eleven nights. Amonth later it was rewritten byGeorge L. Aiken and produced at theMuseum Theatre in Troy, N. Y. Sincethat time Aiken’s version has beenwidely played and it is the one whichwill be used by the Dramatic as.so-ciation. Another version was writ¬ten by Mrs. Anna Marble and wasgiven at Rice’s Theatre, Chicago, dur¬ing the season 1852-53.Production Often Repeated .Many celebrated actors haveplayed in “Uncle Tom’s Cabin .

Cox, professor of financein the School of Commerce and Ad¬ministration of the University. Pro¬fessor Cox’s prophecy is made in anarticle on “The Business Outlook for1931,” in the current issue of the Uni¬versity of Chicago magazine.Comparing the present depressionwith the previous major declines of thelast fifty years. Professor Cox findsthat the current decline has alreadylasted longer than the total period ofrecession in two-thirds of the previousmajor depressions.Twenty-five Percent Below Normal“Business has now been below com¬puted normal for sixteen months,” hepoints out. “This is slightly longerthan the time taken by the index toreach bottom in any previous depres¬sion after it had crossed the line oftrend. Business has now fallen 25 percent below normal, which is as low asit has ever gone, except for one monthin the summer of 1894, when industrywas temporarily paralyzed by strikes.“In previous depressions the index,after reaching bottom, has always be¬gun a definite advance within a fewmonths. Once begun, this advancehas always continued at least to nor¬mal without serious interruption. Theinterval of subnormal business has lieentwo years or less in every instancesave of 1884-86. when activity remain¬ed below normal for 30 months.Not As Rapid As In 1922“The despondent argue that thepresent major depression is world¬wide, but so..was each of the othersexcept that of 1896-98. It is said thatwe are now in a long-time period ofdeclining prices, but so were we in theeighties and nineties. There are. ad¬mittedly, novel elements in the pres¬ent situation, but some of these are asfavorable to recovery as others areunfavorable.”MRS. AYSCOUGHINTERPRETS LIFEDURING T’ANG ERAInvestigate ValueOf Student AgenciesAn investigation of the value andmethod of operation of studentagencies at other universities is beingmade at the present time by the Boardof Vocational Guidance and Place-]ment, under the direction of RobertWoellner. executive secretary of theBoard.This survey is being made to deter¬mine whether or not the system of stu¬dent agencies is adaptable to this cam¬pus. -An article appearing in yester¬day’s issue of The Daily Maroon er¬roneously stated that such an agencyhad already been formed. A petitionto organize the project was presentedto the Board of X’ocational Guidanceand Placement, but it has not beengranted. “No action on this matterof student agencies w-ill be taken byour office until the results of this sur¬vey have been submitted to the properauthorities,” Mr. John Kennan of the\’ocational office said yesterday.Other institutions whose situationsare comparable to those of the Uni¬versity are being investigated by the(Continued on page 4) The inner China, its literary, politi¬cal, and court life as it flourished un¬der the T’ang dynasty—will be dis¬cussed today at 4:30 in Harper Milby Florence Ayscough, author, lec¬turer and foremost Chinese womanscholar.Mrs. .Ayscough is concerned withwhat she calls “the storybook China,of glittering color, peace, and purposewhich has for centuries pursued its im¬perturbable path, hidden from eventhe curious eye.” It is this inner China,in its varied phases, to which Mrs.Ayscough has dedicated her books,“The Chinese Mirror”, “Tu Fu", theautobiography of a Chinese poet,“The Autobiography of a ChineseDog,” and “Fir-Flower Tablets” onwhich she collaborated with .AmyLowell. Recovery will not be as rapid as in.1922, when a boom based on war short¬ages of housing and great demand forautomobiles was under way, or as in1913 when war demands of Kuropeproduced a spectacular revival. Profes¬sor Cox says.Lists Unfavorable Factors. Great volume of war debts and re¬parations and the uncertainty concern¬ing the future of these obligations;high tariffs which constitute a heavyliurden on w’orld commerce; heavystocks of raw materials which produc¬ing companies built up during yearsof artificial price control, and the con¬trasts in the extent to which commod¬ity price deflation has proceeded areamong the unfavorable factors to re¬covery listed by the economist.Factors regarded as favoralile in¬clude signs of stabilization of whole¬sale prices; low inventories, opportun-(Continued on page 3) . • Re-creation of the informal and hos¬pitable atmosphere of a business streetin an old English university town wasbegun this week on the new campussouth of the Midway.

DorseyDies in New YorkDr. George Amos Dorsey, notedanthropologist and former professorat the University, died at his homein New York, March 29. He hadjust completed the last volume ofhis work “On Civilization.”In 1890, Dr. Dorsey came to Chi¬cago after serving as the head ofthe archaeological branch of the de¬partment of anthropology at Har¬vard. For a time he served as cura¬tor of the Field Museum of NaturalHistory and later as a professor ofanthropology at the University. In1908 and 1909 he was president ofthe Chicago Geographical society.His best known work is “Why WeBehave Like Human Beings.” Since1918 he had been connected withthe I’nited States Naval Service inSpain.

A..A. Stagg, director of athletics atthe University, made the followingcomntent:“Knute Rockne’s death was agreat shock to me. It seems unbe¬lievable. What terrible sorrow forhis bereaved wife and children. Mysympathy goes out to them. Deathat forty-two years of age seemscruel. If he had to die soon thedramatist would have rung downthe curtain at this moment. He wastaken away at the zenith of his ca¬reer.“It was not my privilege to seeany of his great teams play but Iknow that Knute Rockne was amaster coach and a great leader. Heevidently welded his team togethermechanically and-spiritually. Other¬wise, he could not have had such re¬markable success throughojut hiscoaching career. I never had manyopportunities to talk football withhim but his keen mind, quick pow¬ ers of observation and his humanunderstanding evidently made himthe master psychologist he was re¬puted to be. .As I met him now andthen, I was impressed with his hu¬man qualities—warm, friendly, gen¬erous, and personally unselfish,ready for the give and take of -lifeand willing to give more than hetook.”H. O. (Pat) Page, coach of base-ball, had an intimate contact withthe late Notre Dame mentor. In¬formed of the death at baseballpractice yesterday he said: .“For the past ten years at But¬ler University and Indiana Univer¬sity I have been a competitor ofRockne’s. I knew him very well per¬sonally and had a profound admir¬ation for the man and the teamsthat he produced. His men on thefield had his fighting qualities, andmy men, as well as myself, alwayshad the greatest respect for hisgame tactics. In addition to meet¬ing Notre Dame in football, myteams met Rock’s track teams whenhe was coaching that sport. Hismen always rose to unexpectedheights. Off of the field we alllearned to love him.” This letter, concerning the Christ¬mas number of The Daily Maroon,was received from Frederick J. Gur¬ney, former Asistant Recorder. Hehas spent the last year in Persia.To the Editor of THE DAILYMAROON:The special Christmas number ofTHE DAILY MAROON of Decem¬ber 17 last, addressed to my son, Mr,F. Taylor Gurney, B.

The pic¬tures of familiar places and buildingsand some new ones not yet familiar,are cheering to my heart.Particular interest, of course, cen¬ters on the full account of the neweducational plans recently announcedby President Hutchins. In connec¬tion with this I notice the letter to Mr.Felsenthal and his reference to thework of the first President of the Uni¬versity. He says, “I do not speak inany sense officially, but individually Iregard President Hutchins’ plans asa development and extension of thepJans of President William RaineyHarper, the intellectual genius towhom the L^niversity owes its broadeducational foundation and much ofits marwlous growth.” This state¬ment amounts to putting the firstPresident and the one now occupyingthe chair in the same class as educa¬tors of vision and of ability to trans¬form visions into realities. * It is atribute to President Harper and hisachievements in the great task of put¬ting into action the newly organizedinstitution, getting together a faculty(Continued on page 3) By Herbert H. Joseph Jr.Coincident with the announcementthat the School of Commerce and .Ad¬ministration will occupy Haskell mu¬seum at an early date, the generalplans for the school to be put intoeffect along with the new reorganiza¬tion system were made known byDean William H. Spencer yesterday.An outstanding provision of the newcurriculum is the establishment of an“interneship in business” which will berequired of all candidates for the bach¬elor’s degree.No Admittance ExaminationThe provisions of the new curricu¬lum as tentatively formulated will bein accordance with the principles ofthe new general educational plan forthe University. An applicant for theC&.A school will be admitted from theCollege without additional examina¬tion if he is given an honorable dis¬charge from the lower division. .Atpresent about half the students in theschool do not receive their prelimin¬ary training at the University.The School of Commerce and Ad¬ministration is the first of the profes¬sional schools to completely revise itspresent system. Grades and requiredcourses are abolished along with coursecredits.Three Concentration TestsThe student in the Commerce schoolwill take three comprehensive examin¬ations before receiving his degree. Thefirst will cover the basic subject mat¬ter of the various fields of business.This examination will be taken approx¬imately at the end of the first yearin the school.The second major examination,which will, usually be taken after thecompletion of two j'ears’ work, willrequire a general knowledge of themethods and problems of the manage¬ment of business. Under the presenisystem the student receives his degreeat the end of the second year and theschool loses control of his activities.Ihuler the new plan of six months ap¬prenticeship in the business world theschool can observe the student in ac¬tion.School Will Aid Job-GettingThe third examination will followtlie “interneship". The school will aidall students in getting positions withvarious business concerns. The abil¬ity of the school to arrange for jobsfor all students who have passed thesecond examination will depend uponthe cooperation of various business en¬terprises. If a student is able to placehimself, this will serve the purposeas far as the C(t.A school is concerned.The details of business apprenticeshipwill be under the supervision of anexamination and training hoard.It is hoped that the student may beunder the constant authority of an ad¬visor during the period of businessprobation. This “interneship” is a rad¬ical departure from curricula of otherschools of business. It will afford ameans of studying the result of class¬room training which has never beenafforded heretofore.(Continued on page 4)Dr. Gertrude SmithReturns From TourThe reorganization of the Universityis still a matter of great interest tostudents and educators in the south,j if the experiences of Dr. Gertrude E.j Smith of the department of Greek,who recently returned from that sec-j tion of the country, are to be taken as'any guide.Dr. Smith had intended to speak onclassical subjects at each of the threej colleges she visited; however, in eachcase her time was taken up in answer¬ing questions about the reorganizationof the University. “All of the studentsand faculty members were intenselyinterested In the plan, and showeredme with questions about organization,administration. and details.” shestated.The three colleges at which Dr.Smith spoke are Blue Mountain col¬lege, Miss.; Agnes Scott college.

THE ACTIVITIES—THE VITAL CHANGETTie activities, as we briefly sketched their early history yester¬day, began as mere pastimes for the entertainment and supplement¬ary education of those who originated them. However, a vitalchange was soon effected:After the first all-University dance, the first publication, thefirst play, etc. had proved successful as a means of diversion, the The Dartmouth, Dartmouth’s DailyPaper, sent out a questionnaire totheir graduating class. Far from in alethargic state, the class respondedabundantly. To the question “Whatdoes college life need?” 250 responded“women” and another two hundredanswered “a good five cent glass ofbeer”. Twenty-five out of about fourhundred admitted that they had neverbeen kissed, and liked their girls, inregard to speed,' “medium fast”.♦ • ♦ ♦Yesterday a neat looking littlefreshman girl stopped someone on cam¬pus and asked where Classics was. .-Ksbest he could, that someone instructedRuth Goldstein by words and signs.Carefully Ruth followed the instruc¬tions, walked into a building, andasked a bystander, “Do you knoww'here room 210 is?” “Yes”, was thereply, “but I really don’t think youhad better go up there”. “But I must”,said Ruth. “I have a class there’'. “O.K.”, said the bystander, “but this isGates Dormitory—for men only”. It is tradition, it must be tradition,for instructors to warn their classes atthe beginning of the quarter. Mr.O’Hara performed this duty nobly, “Ithink the Daily Maroon is an awfullygood newspaper.

They decided to enlarge their “activities”and make them more elaborate. But they did not have the moneyon hand. And so to solve this first financial problem, they began tocharge for their entertainment. That was the vital change. Paren¬thetically, the problems arising from the solution of that first finan¬cial problem have never since been adequately solved.As soon as the monetary system of running things was adopted,several new difficulties presented themselves. The participators inthe activities found that after all the meager expenses of their ele¬mentary performances had been paid, there was some money left.Not only that. The student body was growing larger and it was nowrapidly becoming a question whether the activities were still open toeveryone (and so all-University) or whether they were graduallycoming under the control of several clever people. These two prob¬lems—surplus and representation—demanded changes of policy.However, the problems were not regarded as very serious inthose days because they had not attained the formidable dimensionsthey wear today, and so the matter was dismissed temporarily byframing a few simple constitutions. In this the University did nottake a very decisive part. Perhaps thfe attitude on the part of theUniversity was a gracious and well-meant move. But it has failed toprove its efficacy, because students and administration fail to main¬tain a pace of similar speed as far as development is concerned.That needs no explanation. The University is today at the frontof American education while the activities are regarded as ratherlaughable gestures on-the part of enterprising students.That fact raises a question. Are the activities worth bother¬ing about, or should they be left to the students as idle playthings?The answer has been unanimously decisive in other universities, andthe benefits accruing from well-regulated student enterprises in thoseinstitutions have been instructive and helpful to both the adminis¬tration and the campus at large. In short, the activities are tangibleexperiments and experiences in fields where theory needs practice tomake it perfect. The fact that they have never materialized intosuch enterprises at the University has been due to this failure of thestudents to keep pace with the administration, and the failure of theadministration to set up a scale of progress by which students coulddevelop tangible and theoretical education in an equal manner.A word about this vital change by way of progressive explana¬tion .... it will be noted that the activities were now no longer re¬garded as much in the light of entertainment and fun, after the firstsurplus was entered on the books, as in the light of instruction. Thechange was twofold then. It involved the distribution of profit with¬in the activity which activity must be representative of the campusto keep it from developing into outright highway '.-obbery; and itinvolved instruction and experience instead of mere fun as a basisfor existence. The University dances, which can hardly be called in¬structive, were labeled “traditional” for the sake of conveniehce-and were thus forced into the same category.It is easy to see that these problems were not small ones whenthe University was drawing a larger and more representative studentbody year by year. It is also easy to see'that those early constitu¬tions could not have been very satisfactory, and that their clausesprobably would not be worthwhile for more than a few years. Thefact that the activities have persisted under those ancient chartershas contributed largely to their downfall.—E. A. G.

As is always the case, how¬ever, the innocent suffer in this world,and Innocence, as personified byGretchen in Goethe's drama, was in¬terpreted miserably by the orchestra.The viola obligato was noticeably offkey, as was the solo violin passage,the temp.o was dragged, with the re¬sult that that which should have beenmost impressive caused nothing butaesthetic misery. The “Faust” and"M^phistopheles” sections were better,though even they lacked conviction.Perhaps he was right who said thatonly a German can interpret a Ger¬man. ‘The “kiiine Journey” from Wag¬ner’s music-drama “Die Gotterdam-merung” closed the program in a sat- 'isfactory way. .And that is not so re- Imarkable; the Chicago orchestra plays jit often enough to be able to do it Ijustice. The closing program of the !series, on April 21, promises to be !more interesting. Wednesday, April 18—Radio lecture, “Modern Trends in World-Religions,” ProfessorA.

He is the onemeniher of the present Board of Trus¬tees who is a graduate of the old Uni¬versity of Chicago. There w'as an¬other, Mr. F. A. Smith, who servedfor a long time but who passed awaya number of years ago. That institu¬tion. as may not be known to mostnieinbers of the University, died ofdebt in 1886. People who w'ere inter¬ested in the cause of higher educa¬tion in Chicago mourned over itsdeath, but its passing away was a'l)Iessing in disguise, for it clearedthe ground for the present University,which has become what the othernever could have been. I cannot help thinking of the inter¬esting job put into the hands of theRecorder’s office in making the transi¬tion in records from the old system tothe one now coming into being. Presi¬dent Harper in 1893, when the Uni¬versity was only one year old, com¬mixed to me the task of working outthe scheme for keeping the records ofthe students and developing a tech¬nique. Our scheme worked well forthe former educational system and we were able to handle changes as theycame, but now a new factor is enter¬ing the situation. -After 35 yearsspent under the former conditions, formy retirement from the position of As¬sistant Recorder came in 1928, I thinkit will be fun to stand on the side linesand see how this subordinate but nec¬essary and important part of the workis developed.Very sincerely yours,(signed) Frederick J.

Prof. Duddy FindsCity Grain Storage !Situation Abnormal“The present congested condition ofgrain storage space in Chicago is ab¬normal and cannot continue indefin¬itely,’’ Professor Edward A. Duddy ofthe School of Commerce and .Admin¬istration of the University said yes¬terday in an interview. “The conges¬tion now existing is due to the policyof the Farm Boajd in accumulatinggrain.“.More significant than the conges¬tion of the elevators, so far as Chi¬cago is concerned, is the fact thatsince 1900. when storage capacityreached its peak except for the waryears, grain receipts of the city haveshown an irregular decline. This de¬cline has I)een paralleled by a decline of the wheat crop exported.“It is significant also that in 1930,for the first time in the history of theChicago grain market, first place incombined receipts of the five grains—wheat, corn, oats, barley, and rye—was yielded to another market. Min¬neapolis displaced Chicago in receiptswith 154,311,000 bushels comparedwith 141,388,000.“Chicago has lost ground steadily1 since 1921 in relation to the combinedj receipts at fourteen principal interitirI grain markets. In 1921, Chicago re¬ceived 29 per cent of the combined re¬ceipts of the markets, but in 1930 itstotal had dropped to 16.22 per cent.Duluth. Kansas City, Wichita, andHutchinson have grown at the ex¬pense of Chicago,’’Professor Duddy does not agree en¬tirely with those authorities who be¬lieve that Chicago’s decline as a graincenter is due to failure to provide ade¬ quate storage. In a recent article inthe Journal of Business, he developedthe point that growth and decline ofstorage space in Chicago has kept pacewith the growth and decline of grainreceipts.‘ “Whether the decline in receipts isthe result of failure to provide suf¬ficient storage space, or whetlier de¬clining receipts discouraged capitalfrom entering this form of enterpriseis not altogether clear,’’ ProfessorDuddy said yesterday."It is clear, however, that whileI storage .space has been declining inI Chicago, it has been increasing alongj with receipts at Duluth. Kansas City.Minneapolis, and Buffalo. The in¬crease in the transfer of spring wheatdown the lakes is sufficient explana¬tion of the growth at Duluth, whilethe presence of a strong milling indus¬try accounts for most of the growthat the remaining markets.’’ Investigate ValueOf Student Agencies(Continued from page 1)Board to learn to what extent theagencies materially aid students need¬ing employment, and to discover theadvantages that have grown out of thesystems elsewhere. iIMake Radical Changes 'In C and A Curriculum |I(Continued from page 1) jSyllabi will he provided for all the .fields in which a student will be ex- 'amined in the concentration tests.
