HUTCHINS TELLS OFSWEEPING EFFECTSOF REORGANIZATIONAddresses Meeting of300 Doctors ofPhilosophy25th ANNV^SARYEjcplains Purpose of theCollege and UpperDivisionsThe effect of the reorganiiation ofthe University upon research, the ed¬ucation of research workers, and the'preparation of college teachers wasexplained by President Robert May¬nard Hutchins in an address before300 members of the Association ofDoctors of Philosophy at the dinnerin Ida Noyes hall which concludedthe twenty-fifth anniversary meeting.The meeting was attended by gradu¬ates from all parts of the country.“Since the object of the Universityis to advance knowledge, it is clearthat the College can only be justifiedif it contributes to this end,” Presi¬dent Hutchins said. ^‘The Collegewill contribute to this end, I believe,and in three ways. First, it shouldgive a good general education. Atthe end of the College period herO'after, the student should have a solidfoundation of general culture uponwhich he may base his specialization.Experimental College“In the second place the Collegewin contribute to the advancement ofknowledge by removing those barriersthat have in the past been discourag¬ing to scholarship. And in the thirdplace, the College will contribute tothe a^^'^nncement of knowledge be¬cause it win be an experimental col¬lege.“The upper divisions represent astill more direct connection betweenthe i'corganization and the advance¬ment of knowledge. The divisions areunits devoted to advanced study. Stu¬dents passing from the College tothe divisions will go from an organ¬ization with one purpose to an or¬ganization with an entirely differentpurpose and under entirely differentcontrol. They make this transitionw’hen they can show, first, that theyhave a general education, and second,that they are prepared to specialize.The atmosphere of the divisionsshould be, eventually at least, scholar¬ly and professional.Facilitates Stixly of Whole Problem“The first advantage of the divi¬sional plan then is that it brings thegraduate school down to the begin¬ning of junior year. The second isthat it permits breadth of trainingand the study of problems ratherthan fractions of problems. Since de¬partmental categories are historical,the student who is interested in apri>blem rather than in getting a de¬gree from a department may be at aloss to know in what department heshould pursue his problem. Such afield is International Relations. An¬other is Child Development.“In the first of these arrangementshave been made so that a studentmay take his degree in InternationalRelations in the Social Science Divi¬sion, even though we have no de¬partment of Internatiopal Relations.In the others similar plans are underconsideration, S.uch plans are laciTi-tated, though not made conipulsory,by the divisional scheme.(Continued on page 4)Install New Officers,Cabinet of Y.

Baker.Assistant: Bion B, HowardTHE INCIDENTAL POINTRecently President Hutchins addressed the Association of Doc¬tors of Philosophy and explained to them some angles regardingthe effect of the reorganization upon research. Pertinent as thispoint may be before an assembly of the type Dr. Hutchins addressed,the speech seems to bring out other factors connected with the re¬organization which may in the end be far more vital than mereproblematical effects.The speech represents above all else what many of the otherspeeches by the same author and his colleagues have expressed—that the reorganization of the University is not a process of endow¬ing the institution with a new method of conducting classes, receiv¬ing freshmen in a different manner, and eventually preparing themfor life, but a process of adding to the University year by year ad¬vantages that have proved themselves such by true, scientific ex¬periment.'''?;'.';,’^The result of this realization will at once preclude the possibil¬ity that at the end of next year the University will have lived throughthe trial period and that.henceforth it will proceed in a routine thatechoes and re-echoes that’single year over and over again. Instead?the University may be as far from actual reorganization next yearas it is today. Some of the steps may have been ascended, some ofthe routine established and some of the forms utilized, but themajor portion of the'work is too great to be achievetl in a'singleleap. ^ i- ' - ^The individual projects incorporatedviri the plans for the fu¬ture, are as stupendous when viewed initotailty as the present Uni¬versity is when it is regarded as a single educational unit. Newbuildings must be built to house the departments expanding so rap-;idly that^ their, present quarters are too^ narrow, research must beaided to solve more of the'problems that today make education asmuch fiction as fact, scholarships must be; established to keep adecent medium between ambition and laziness, and salaries must bemaintained among the professorial ranks whose size fully warrantsthe presence of first class educators. In short, 'the casual observershould not imagine that alterations in a few matters of routine inthemselves constitute a tremendous amount of’ progress; it is thegradual expansion that is as vital to the success of the reorganizationas the inception of new methods of conveying educational advance¬ment to a class of students.It is largely a misunderstanding in this respect that has madethe reorganization a problem to the campus. Most people are in¬clined to ask “How long will it take to graduate?” instead of “Whatsteps must be taken to bring about this vast and highly integratedsystem which will make the University not only the largest, butalso the most complete educational center in the world?” It is areorganization of the University in all its phases and aspects, notin classroom routine. . The classroom routine reform is only one ofthe many ;result8 of previous advancement and research.It is safe to say,; therefore, that the end of next year may shownothing at allias regardsAthe reorganization. There may be somedirect results accruing from' the abolition of classroom routine, a fewstudents may even feel themselves urged on to unprecedentedheights because they realize that they are the masters of their ownfate, but the major part of the work will have advanced so grad¬ually that its speed will hardly have been perceptible. Divisionsand fields are not combined in a few days, salaries are not raised bywishes, new buildings are not conjured out of the sand, and researchis not the result of few peeks through a microscope. But little bylittle the gigantic foundation will have grown, even if its evolutionseems stationary to the naked eye.Indirectly President Hutchins has made a point which over¬shadows all others despite the fact that it was incidental . . .

The serious doulu remains,however, of whether mass educationI through extension institutes is, in thej end, the best and most effective means()f disseminating the results of inves-j tigations into human problems. It wasour opinion that Dr. Flexner’s vigor-ou> hook had once and for all pointedout the uttef ridiculousness of massproduction in higher education, andhad amply shown, in his discussion ofCohmihia. the inconsistency betweenextension institutes and the ideals ofeducation. j Because the present administra-I tion believes the existing Freshmeni Women’s club constitution is not; efficient, the chairman appointedi Eleanor Dietrich, chairman, Kath-1 erine Halligan, Kathryn Stevenson,: and Marion Wier to consider plansI for reorgani^tion.

TUESDAY, APRIL 7. 1931 Page ThreeSEE IMPROVEMENTIN LA CRIHQUEBy George T. Van der HoefSince its first issue three years ago,La Critique has had varying fortuneslike most of the undergraduate pub¬lications. There is little doubt butthat at the outset the obstacles of itsgetting a firm hold in the Universitypublications field were many. Despitethese obstacles, or perhaps because ofthem, the first few issues were a greatsuccess. Then came the inevitable de¬cline which grew almost to the propor¬tions of a landslide. There was inter¬nal dissention among members of thestaff and its sponsor or guardian an¬gel, the Political Science council, butwhat was far most serious, the campuslost interest. Then followed a series ofdistinctly mediocre issues. From timeto time an occasional article wouldshow, a semblance of the old fire whichmarked the first issues, but apparentlythey were mere flashes in the pan. Thewhole tone of the publication simplydid not hold up. This condition con¬tinued well into this year. However,gradual improvement must have beentaking place for no miracle has eversaved a publication or put out a real¬ly first class issue. But whether theresult of natural evolution or super¬natural phenomena, this event has oc-cured. The April issue of La Critique,in practically every department, was acreditable piece of work.Criticizes Mens’ CommissionFor the first time in a long whileLa Critique has published articles withpointed and pertinent comments uponcampus and outside problems, and thecriticism is almost evenly balanced be¬tween destructive and constructive.Kenneth Mulligan contributed a de¬tailed analysis of the activities of theMens’ Commission and trenchant re¬marks concerning the justification forthe organization’s existence. MarionWhite, Woman's Editor of The DailyMaroon replied to Harold Wilson’sarticle, “The Cops .Are Coming to Col¬lege”. The rebutting such statementsas its implication that policemen werea “dumb bunch of flatfeet” Miss Whitepointed out, in a constructive man¬ner, the interest taken by the profes¬sional crime investigators in theirwork and the probable results accru¬ing from such a course in better imliceadmhiistration..Albert .Arkules discussed the useful¬ness of dramatic criticism in layingthe foundations for better theatricalproductions and showed with consid¬erable clarity that in the final analy¬sis, dramatic criticism, although ap¬parently mostly destructive, is in real¬ity the most constructive force in thetheatrical world today. Mr. .Arkulessupported his assertions with numer¬ous examples from both historical andcontemporary sources. Of particularinterest was his conclusion thatGeorge Jean Nathan is the dean ofthe present school of dramatic criti¬cism which is noted for its challengingand ruthless discriminations betweendrama and art.Analyze Student ProblemsConcerning student proI)lems, LaCritique has carried out its editorialplatform with great eonsistency. Wil¬liam .Allen Quinlan, the editor, madea spirited appeal for better hous¬ing for undergraduate activities,and Leo Dolan in an article en¬titled “The Tuition Tragedy” show¬ed with slightly concealed irony theunjust discrimination among studentsupon purely financial grounds ratherthan intellectual. Following out themajor platform for the year, namelyundergraduate student agencies, Rob¬ert McCarthy, chairman of the maga-azine’s editorial board, has written anexceedingly valuable article dealingwith this problem. It is significantprincipally because it is the first at¬tempt to give anything even approxi¬mating practical suggestions as to howthe administration may be influencedto take action upon this matter.Moore Writes of KentuckyHarry T. Moore, late of the Uni¬versity, who is now attending CenterCollege, Kentucky came out of his se¬clusion long enough to contribute asketch of the Kentucky landscape.This sketch seems to be rather out ofplace in such a controversial publica¬tion as La Critique, and seems betterfitted for “The Circle”. As it stands,the sketch is simply a sketch, with afew geological terms thrown in ap¬parently for effect, but which give onethe impression that the author has re¬cently completed an elementary sur¬vey course in the subject.On the whole, however, one cancertainly say that the April issue ofLa Critique is a great improvementover the last dozen or so. Its articleswere well‘written, pertinent, and forthe most part significant, which is, af¬ter aH, accomplishing, in no smallway, the ultimate goal of a collegiatepublication.

UNIVERSITY BULLETINTo the Editor of the Daily Maroon:At the winter convocation PresidentHutchins announced that a bequest oftwo million dollars had been left theUniversity recently. No definite planshave been made for the use of thismoney. If suggestions are in ordermay I call the administration’s atten¬tion to the “great gothic stucture,” onEllis avenue which is known to hun¬dreds of students as the headquartersof the Psychology department. I heardtwo students arguing one day as towhich was the “biggest dump” thePsych, building on the one with whichthe C. and A. students are familiar;and talk about profane language, but,the importance of the argument wasthe conclusion which embodied thefact that there had been definite dis¬cussion concernig the construction ofa new C. and A. building, while noth¬ing has been said about a new homefor the University’s most poorly hous¬ed department.During vacation week the old arm¬ory was torn down after standingsince 1903 as a part of Lexington Hall,on University avenue. The ground isbeing leveled off. Come out on yourback porch President Hutchins andview this plot of ground as a site fora beautiful white building correspond¬ing to the Egsrptian museum which isnearing completion at 58th street andUniversity avenue. Such a locationwould be ideal for a headquarters forthe Psychology department because ofthe abundance of natural light whichwould be afforded.Students from other schools are as¬tounded when they are shown thehome which the great progressiveUniversity of Chicago provides for theworld’s newest and most talked aboutscience. Are there more people ma¬joring in Egyptian history and re¬search than there are in Psychology?The following excerpts from Dr.Harvey Carr’s article on the growthof the Psychology department takenfrom The Daily Marooq of January 21provide further proof of the great ne¬cessity for new and adequate housingfacilities for that department:“The department has been in ex¬istence for 27 years. During this timethe department has exhibited a steadyincrease in staff and number of under¬graduate and graduate students. Theinitial staff consisted of a professor,an instructor, and a labortory assistant,while at present there are seven teach¬ing appointments and three part-timeinstructors. At first the undergraduateinstruction was limited to a few sec¬tions of introduction psychology. Atpresent the number of courses open toundergraduate students is ten. the totalnnmber of undergraduate registra¬tions is close to seven hundred, whileforty-six are majoring in the depart¬ment. The number of graduate stu¬dents working toward a degree has in¬creased from ten to fifty. The numberof Doctors for the past six years waseleven, while the number for the lastsix years is forty-four. There has beenno commensurate increase in space andequipment. The department was firsthoused in a small frame building,which is now devoted to comparativepsychology, while the laboratory pro¬per was moved to its present quartersin 1908. These quarters served ourpurposes reasonably well at the time,but at present they are entirely in¬adequate. 8—Radio lecture: “Modern Trends in World-Religions.” ProfessorEustace Haydon, Comparative Religion department.

This is especially appreciableif one has seen the movie version ofthe same play. There is no betterway to appreciate the stage than tosee the same text presented on thescreen. Pauline Fredericks was thetabloid mother; and she ignored thevery essentials of a character which became dsmamic under the influenceof Mjiss Lowry, and in the screenversion Miss Fredericks was, at least,the most intelligent of the cast.Conrad Nagel as the invalid gavebut a sickly interpretation of therole which Harry Mervis plays withthe typical Mervis verve. Miss Krugand Miss Root have ample opportun¬ities for heated words, thrown ateach other in the most excellentmanner.All in all, “The Sacred Flame’’ isburning brightly at the Goodman.It is the last presentation of the sea¬son at that theatre and should domuch to induce financial support fornext year. Hutchins Tells ofSweeping EffectsOf Reorganization(Continued from page 1)“Cooperative research, too, is facil¬itated though not made compulsoryby the divisional scheme. Any pro¬gram that attempts to coerce inves¬tigators into such research will fail.Any program at the present datethat does not provide the fullest op¬portunity for research is reactionary.Since faculty members with commoninterests from different departmentsare now brought together in the divi¬ sions as part of working and plan¬ning units, we expect the divisionsto give impetus to cooperation andinvestigation.’’The research work of the Univers¬ity cannot be improved, PresidentHutchins said. It can only be assist¬ed. He pointed out that such de¬partments as Psychology, Bacteriol¬ogy, Anatomy, Geography, and HomeEconomics have been struggling un¬der the inadequate facilities, andneed new buildings at once. Otherdepartments, the President said, needresearch facilities, and all depart¬ments must have fellowships. A Largefund for new books and a new li¬brary building are needed. Professor Herbert E.

Somerset Maugham.Faster and faster the spokes fly,brighter the sparks, while the tense¬ness flows more and more toward thepivot, leaving the spokes agitatedand mechanic. Miss Lowry growsmore and more quiet until herplacidity is in itself spectacular, likean exclamation point on a blankpage, a sudden silence in a storm.She becomes even more potent untilshe is all the truths of life embodiedin human form.To that human form, Miss Lowrybrings all the significance which sheherself has achieved. She has beenmellowed in the theatre until hertechnique of voice and gesture areimperceptible. She has become amutable being, susceptible to thefaintest undercurrent of dramaticpossibility. It is easy to understandwhy this actress came from Cincin¬nati to be the guest artist duringthe current run of “The SacredFlame.” Her own mellowing in thetheatre has supremely fitted her forMaugham’s conception of a womangrown mellow vcith life.As Mrs. Tabret, she is a mother,wise wnth the truths which haveclung to her from her own struggles.Because she understands, she ismaster of all the little people who !live and love, writhe and clash with¬in her house. They are young andeager and Maugham pities them theiryouth and eagerness, fuel to thegreat flame of love, which cannot besurfeted. They are pathetic because ithey are so futile, futile because all |their struggling, their desire, their Ieffort can only result in the loss oftheir illusions, the greatest tragedy Iof life. IThere is Maurice Tabret, maimed ifor life and from his invalid chair }craving only the love of his youngwife. She is cheerful, affectionate,clinging desperately to her love forhim and finding herself ever moredeeply in love with his youngerbrother. There is Nurse Waylandw’ho is as desperately in lovewith her helpless patient, who poursin her ear his physical agony thatto the world he may appear onlytlithe and gay. The time Is not evenfar away when Maurice shall knowof his wife’s love for Colin, for sheis soon to have a child. jHere then, Maugham has cast his jcharacters into a chaotic futility.And the mother, because she under- istands the little people, and because Ishe has given all her own love toher invalid son, and because she cannot bear the tragedy of futility—she jtakes into her hands the power of jdeath, she who after all had given jthe power of life. She alone is strongenough to avert the impending chaosand give new meaning to the tornlives by saving their illusions.Maugham has seized the sameidea that O’Neill used in “Beyondthe Horizon”. O’Neill averted trage¬dy by having his hero escape disil¬lusionment beyond the horizon; andMaugham has averted tragedy byleading his hero from the scene withhis dreams unbroken in his hands.The difference in their respectivetreatments lies in the fact thatO’Neill throws his characters intothe ruthless hands of fate whileMaugham has created a charactergreat enough to take fate into herown hands.Building his entire action aroundthis theme, Maugham has evolved adrama as integrally unified as anyplay could be. His is the ability toblend diverse colours, harmonies, in¬to a perfect rhythm. Everyone ofhis characters with their widelyseparated theories and philosophiesare vitally related to each other.Even the little old major who hoversnear his old love for Mrs. Tabretand Dr. Harvester never quiteforgets his professionalism.With every chance in the worldto sentimentalize on acceptedly sen¬timental situations, Maugham has re¬mained true to the realism whichproduced such plays as “Rain” and“The Letter”.
