Hutchins in anarticle entitled “Gate Receipts andGlory" which appears in today’sSaturday Evening Post. Money, saysHutchins, is the cause of athleticismin American colleges.To remedy this Hutchins suggeststhat football be de-emphasized to thepoint where there is a ten-cent gatefor games. “The public will not likemission meetings on the three topics | ten-cent football because it will notwhich arc of greatest general public:interest: minorities and boundaries,|with special reference to the refugee!problem; trade barriers; and colonies ^and raw materials. jOn each topic, one member fromthe eommission will read a four-jmimite report summarizing the con-jelusions of his commission, and then!.!('(■ Hosenstein, president of the Con- ^fereiice and chairman of the broad-1cast, will ask him four or five ques-1tioiis about the reasons that caused;the commi.ssion to reach these conclu-jsioiis.

Athleticism is not physicaleducation but sports promotion . . . .carried on for the monetary profit ofthe colleges through the entertain¬ment of the public.”Apologists for athleticism havethe sju'aking ability th^y demon-; created myriad myths “to convince thepublic that biceps are a substitutefor brains.” Among these are thetales that the pre.sent kind of athleticsstratc* in the discussions Friday eve¬ning. jThe Model World Conference will j)(dl()w the procedure of a real world' produces well-rounded men, filledronffience as much as possible in ev-< l y detail. Its purpose is to etlucateand arouse public in a meansof international cooperation thatmany observers believe will be neces¬sarily adopted in the near future. with the spirit of fair play, that lead¬ership before the roaring throngmeans leadership in later life, thatgate receipts from big sports supportthe minor sports and in addition areused to build laboratories, and thatFreddie Bartholomeiv Visits Campus;Volunteers to Help Football Team without a winning team no studentsor gifts will be forthcoming to sup¬port the academic work of the school.Scholarship vs. FootballRipping these fairy stories, Hutch¬ins, on the basis of recent studiesmade by the Carnegie Foundationan(i other groups, says that schoolssuch as Harvard, Yale, and Chicago,which have not had outstanding ath-let*', records, have led the lists ofschools receiving bequests between1920 and 1937, each having receivedmore than fifty millions. Studentswho come to colleges for a good timeon the basis of football victories arethe wrong kind of college material.Football, instead of bearing the costof other sports, is most often foundto be barely supporting itself, oftendeep in debt with huge coachingstaffs and stadia to pay for.Often an athlete, far from learningthat it is sometimes better to losethan to win, comes to think thatwhatever is done, including slugging,is done for the sake of his almamater.As a cure for athleticism Hutchinssuggests (1) the ten cent gate, (2)academic tenure for athletic directoi*sand coaches so that their jobs do notdepend upon winning games, (3)broadened base for participation sothat all can play, and (4) emphasizedgames which students will play inlater life.ASU Theatre CroupProduces ThreePlavs Next WeekBy DAVID MARTINand MARION GERSONUnnoticed by thousands, unrecog¬nized by campus queen Jean Peterson,Freddie Bartholomew, Hollywood ju¬venile star, visited the UniversityQuadrangles last Wednesday. Sur¬rounded by relatives .and an honoraryguard from the President's office, hewas whisked from Harper East Tow¬er, around the Circle, nasst Hull Gateand the Botany pond into Mandel Cor¬ridor.His tour came just at noon, whenelasses were dismissed. Students, pour¬ing out from Kent, Eekart, Cobb andHyerson, pushed past his entouragewithout recognizing him.

Admission to the mat-inee at 4:30 is 35 cents and to boththe 7:30 and 9:30 showings, 50 cents.Harry Baur, who w'as also seen inthis country in “Crime and Chati-rnent,” plays a Russian peasant whorose to wealth and power as a graintrader during the War boom. Thestory of his profiteering tells graph¬ically the story of a whole section ofpost-war nouveaux riche.

Lewis, while “Frank andErna” by Frederick Douglas is be¬ing directed by Harriet Paine, acomparative newcomer herself.Last year’s casting for the New¬comer’s Bill was scrupulously demo¬cratic, and this year’s follows in itsfootsteps according to current DApolicy. Furthermore, Mirror Boardis watching the newcomers closelyfor possible talent for the 1939 Mir¬ror Revue, since Mirror’s ranks weresadly depleted by the departurelast year of Adele Sandman Woodwardand Mary Paul Rix.DA Plays Open to NewcomersIn addition, newcomers will be giv¬en a chance to appear in other majorDA productions this year, althoughDirector D, W. Yungmeyer feels thatno DA member should appear inmore than one production yearly, es¬pecially if this means the exclusionof other equally competent actors.The one-act plays chosen this yearare lighter in character than thoseof last year. This also is in line withnew DA policj' which seeks to fit theplay to the age and ability of theactor.Tickets for the show, which will beperformed tomorrow, Thursday, Fri¬day and Saturday, in Reynolds ClubTheater, have been placed at 55 cents.This is the lowest price for any ma¬jor DA production, excluding the an¬nual spring revivals held in MandelHall. Revise Constitution toEliminate Vagueness asto Duties.The differences which split the Capand Gown Board of Control have atlast been dissolved. Coming as the re¬sult of almost a month’s delibera¬tion and procrastination, the com¬promise has given Cap and Gown anew Board of Control and a newConstitution.The new five man Board of Controlconsists of Phil Schnering, editor-in-chief; Robert Mohlman, businessmanager; John Anderson, managingeditor; Harold Wright, associate busi¬ness manager in charge of circula¬tion; and Walter Young, associatebusiness manager in charge of ad¬vertising.Paul Fischer, former publisher,found it necessary to resign due topressure of his studies. However, heis still retaining his title of publisher,although in an ex-officio capacity. TheBoard will effect a revision of theConstitution at the next meeting inorder to clarify the vagueness whichsurrounds the limitations of duties ofthe staff members.Result of Split in BoardThis reorganization was the out¬come of the split which occurred be¬tween the members of the old Board,Schnering, Fischer, and Mohlman.Fischer and Mohlman tried to oustSchnering, claiming that he wouldnot cooperate on the reorganizationwhich they had planned for Cap andGown. Schnering’s resignation wasdemanded, and an invitation was sentto John Anderson, a Psi U, to becomemanaging editor in charge of jiiake=-up.Meanwhile Fischer and Mohlmanhad gone to Martin J. Freeman, Di¬rector of Publications, in an effort topress their point of view, and to gainformal recognition of the step theywished to take. Freeman however re¬fused to allow Schnering’s dismissalon the grounds that not enough evi¬dence had been presented againsthim. After several meetings a com¬promise was agreed upon, resultingin the new Board and Constitution.The Cap and Gown has been pro¬gressing in spite of the dissension,and the staff is having a meeting forall freshmen interested in working onthis publication, Thursday afternoonat 2:30.Dean ApprovesConstitution ofCampus NewsreelThe Office of the Dean of Studentshas recently accepted the new con¬stitution of the University Newsreel,campus cinema organization whichhas been sponsoring the weekly re¬vivals of former motion-picturefavorites. A new board of officershas also been appointed. They includeWilliam Boehner, Jr., Director, andMiss Doris Wigger as PromotionManager.When the old constitution becameinadequate and cumbersome becauseof new circumstances, the necessityof reorganization became apparent.The Newsreel had outgrown its orig¬inal membership and a wider scopeof motion pictures for revival wasdesired. The first picture to be pre¬sented under the new constitution,“The 39 Steps,” will mark the ad¬vent of sound pictures into the selec¬tion of revivals.Attempt to Raise FundsThis organization, which has grownto 16 members, is sponsoring theseweekly revivals in order to raise fundsto purchase equipment so that nextquarter a newsreel will be possible.“The 39 Steps” is an English pic¬ture featuring Madellene Carroll andRobert Donat. It is remembered froma few years back not only for its bril¬liant action and its intriguing plotbut also for its beautiful and clearphotography.Page Two THE DAILY MAROON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1938^aroonFOUNDED IN 1901MEMBER ASSOCIATED COLLEGIATEPRESSThe Daily Maroon is the official studentnewspaper of the University of Chicago,publish^ mornings except Saturday, Sun¬day and Monday during the Autumn,Winter and Spring quarters by The DailyMaroon Company, 5831 University avenue.Telephones: Hyde Park 9221 and 9222.After 6:80 phone in stories to ourprinters.

We can read it inthe stars; college policies willbecome more frankly commer¬cial, the teams will be paid adecent cut of the profits theybring to Alma Mater, and willtherefore improve. The Univer¬sity, realizing the professionalstandings of the opposingteams, will be forced to confineits character-building activitiesto intramural touchball.Suppose the University de¬cides to anticipate this sad se¬quence of events and lead theparade out of commercializedintercollegiate football. The fallof 1939 will dawn, and StaggField, after bravely carrying onall summer as a bowling green,will be relegated to the dust binuntil ice skating livens the un-der-the-stands scene again. Thefield is too good to waste inthat calloused fashion. We sug¬gest turning it over to the Chi¬cago Bears.The Bears need a home. Pro¬fessional football teams havebeen discussing the housingproblem this year, and are be¬ginning to want fields of theirown. We offer the Bears StaggField, complete with sentimen¬tal associations, for a paltry tenper cent of the profits. Withthis retaining fee we can subsi¬dize informal athletics and buildup a program of lasting valueto the participants.Stagg Field is easily disposedof,—all the more easily sincewe can offer a coach as an add¬ed attraction. The Bears havebeen using Shaughnessy’s playsall year, and manager Halasreputedly wants him as coach.Shaughnessy probably w o n'twant to devote all his efforts topepping up intramurals; there¬fore it would be only fair forus to let him coach a good pro¬fessional team at least part ofthe year.But the sterling feature ofthe ursine rule in Stagg Fieldwill be the new opportunitiesopened up for football playersat the University. Graduate stu¬dent Danny Fortman plays withthe Bears today; if the Bearswere our team he could be de¬fending the glory of the Uni¬versity as well as paying hisway through school. • Perhapssociology prof Herbert Blumerwould be allowed back on a Uni¬versity professional team, andcertainly there are excellentplayers among our graduatesand alumni who should be gladfor the chance at a professional job with University sanction.Average students who just liketo play the game could go backto the intramural berths theybelong in, or could while awayan empty afternoon competingwith an amateur team fromacross the tracks.As for that college spirit, andthe emotional release of unitythat football brings,—they slideinto the new scheme with onlya gentle ripple. We increase thebonus—for ten per cent theBears get not only an excellentcoach and a well-kept field, theyalso get a student cheering sec¬tion and the services of JoeMolkup. Students will still getC-books for a certain number ofhome games. Watching theBears will enable them to de¬velop that healthy outdoorsglow that is one of the mostpublicized spectator benefits offootball. They’ll be able to watchgood games well-played, will beable to support their own school,to sing, to cheer; they will haveevery advantage of present com¬petition with none of the evileffects. Even the Universityband will not be severed fromStagg Field;—we turn over theoutfit complete.Do the Bears take up ourgenerous offer?Today on theQuadrangles“Values of Functions of Co-opera¬tives,” Professor A.

The “Musical Offering,” theaged Bach’s tribute to Frederick theGreat, also made its local debut Sun¬day. For the performance in pub¬lic, Dr. Levarie shows a singularlywell-balanced ensemble: two violins,viola, three cellos, bass, and piano,which, together with the instrumentrequired by Bach himself, the flute,made up the group.Satisfactory MusicianshipThe musicianship displayed wasentirely satisfactory; tempi were wellhandled, and as a whole, good intona¬tion was watchfully secured. Espe¬cially thrilling were the early exposi¬tions of the theme which runs throughthe entire Offering, given out by vari¬ous instruments as the canons of thework progressed. The climactic endof the “canon a six” brought a sin¬cere ovation.An intricate “triosonate” for cello,violin, and flute, the longest sectionof the entire Offering, was capablyplayed and sincerely presented. Thelight “Canon Perpetuus” that closedthe performance was quietly pleas¬ing.Dr. Levarie’s informal explanationsof each section of the work wereneatly given and furnished a helpfulbackground for the uninitiated hear¬er.

The performance, the date ofwhich will be announced later, Will beentirely for the benefit of the RefugeeAid Committee. The announcement of this engage,ment was made after Ellington, whois in Chicago for. a performance atthe Eighth Regiment Armory, wasinterviewed by University students.He expressed his approval of the ideaand his willingness to play at the Uni.versity on whatever date is most con¬venient in regard to his itinerary.Maurice Ravel, noted French mu-sician, has called Ellington “thegreatest living composer.”Mineral TwistsAnd TwirlsCharacterize CayesThe age old law of gravity playssecond fiddle in the formation of cer¬tain peculiar cave deposits. We haveall seen pictures of certain cave de¬posits resembling icicles hangingfrom the ceilings, and known to thegeologist as stalactites. Their formand shape can easily be explainedbecause of the fact that water drip¬ping from the ceilings of these cavesnaturally drips down due to gravita¬tional forces.However, also hanging from somecave roofs are “helectites,” which areof the same mineral composition, butwhich twist and turn upwards andaround in a maddening way withabsolutely no consideration for theforces of gravity.

Com¬posed of a heterogeneous group ofstudents, 89 of whom are registeredfor courses, the rest of whom are lostin the stacks, the whole departmenthas a sort of ivory tower attitudetowards current affairs which colorsits ideas and ideals.Historians who study one periodusually become so engrossed inthat particular epoch that they areable to see nothing outside of it.Their partisanship is more thanpreoccupation with that period,they tend to view all history andall life in light of their pet century,movement, or epoch. However, theevents of recent European history,have stirred some of the faculty in¬to intense excitement, so that it ishoped by the more wide awake stu¬dents that those of their fellowswho are still encased in the wrap¬pings of days gone by, will realize,at last, that history is now in themaking, today, even as it was yes¬terday.The great problem of the depart¬ment is how to place degree holders.This, the head of the department goesout of his way to rectify and to solve.The proper social, political, and racialbackground must be a part of the de¬gree-holder’s qualifications or he doesnot receive a position.There are other credits and debitson the books of the history depart¬ment. Working conditions in the de¬partment are excellent. Students em¬ployed by professors, for the mostpart, enjoy their work and would notgive it up, despite the low pay. jThe faculty is undoubtedly com-|potent, for it has some of the best]men. in their fields, in the United iSuites and the world.For example. Professor Schmitt isone of. the two most outstanding menon European history in the country.Head of Department Louis Gottschalkis one of the four experts on theFrench Revolution, Professor SamHarper is the expert on Russian his¬tory and Russia. On the whole, almostthe entire faculty is open-minded andready to receive new ideas impartial¬ly, although they may not agree withthem or accept them.On the debit side are severalproblems and questions for whichthe students would like solutionsand answers. One of the most im¬portant of these is the problem ofteaching versus research. Most ofthe faculty consider teaching as anadjunct to research, and conse¬quently, poor teaching methods re¬sult. No particular effort is madeto preserve the unity of indepen¬dent lectures by some members ofthe department and many timesthese lectures lack a good back¬ground foundation.Since the advent of the reading pe¬riod little attempt has been made toadjust courses to it, so that it meansthat there are three weeks fewer lec¬tures.Then, too, there are other featuresof the department which the studentswonder about. In one section of thedepartment there have been three re¬tirements in the past four years, noreplacements have been made.There is a certain contempt onthe part of the faculty towards stu¬dents, with little attempt to meetthem on their own level. No effortis made to meet students socially,at teas, club meetings, or else¬where. It has been noticed that atmeetings of the Graduate Historyf lub when professors have beenthe speakers, their colleagues haveturned out en masse; however, atmeetings when students speak,'■fry few professors come.No effort is made to give graduatesopportunities to teach at the Down¬town College, where the teaching hasbeen done by two people for the lastthree years. As most of these grad¬uates plan to teach after receiving adoctor’s degree they are thus deprivedof practical application of theirknowledge.No teaching fellowships exist inthe department because the Univer¬sity has not granted it enough moneyin comparison with other depart¬ments. Fellowships and scholarshipsm graduate history do not pay well,so that many people have gone else¬where for better paid grants. This,however, is not the department’sfault.>Yet students in the department are,' THE DAILY MAROON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1938Buchsbauni’s Book, ^'^AnimalsWithout Backbones,’^ Out Todayon the whole, very well satisfied withtheir work and their professors.There are some exceptions to therule, however. The job situation inthe department is uneven, for someresearch and teaching assistants arewell managed and others are not.Those who are not feel that they areexploited and are improperly treatedby those under whom they work.Albert Parry is one of the manyinteresting people doing graduatework. He left Russia during theRevolution, after having been con¬scripted by both the Red and Whitearmies. After one day in each hequit the service. He has served asan interpreter in Asia Minor, as asailor on the Black Sea, and as edi¬tor of a Ru.ssian newspaper in New_ York. He recently completed histhird book and has written innum¬erable magazine articles. ThomasHall, who is on a Social ScienceFellowship, has recently returned |from Czechoslovakia, Paris, Lon¬don, and the Balkans. His work inCzechoslovakia was interrupted bythe advent of Naziism into that re¬public.There art two classes of graduatestudents in the department, thosew’ho have come directly from under¬graduate work and are perfectly ad¬justed to the exigencies of graduatelife and work, and those who haveknocked around a little before com¬ing back to college.More reactionary than before, thedepartment is still more conservativepolitically than the economics de¬partment.The whole trend of graduate worktends to make people introverts andslightly queer. Yet there is a con¬stant demand for extroverts in teach¬ing. WPA directorships take up peo¬ple w'ho are waiting to get teachingpositions. There is no outlet forPh.D’s, other than teaching and thesedirectorships.PU Round TableDiscussesFree SpeechSubject Arises fromControversy Over Nazi’sRight to Speak.“Freedom of Speech” will be thesubject of the Political Union roundtable on Thursday. The conservativeand radical opinions in the Union areso heated upon thi^ subject, arisingfrom the question of the advisability jof having a Nazi speaker on campu.s,that a general bull session seemednecessary before having any moreregular meetings.The subject arose because of aNazi-Communist debq^e planned bythe Political Union. The Communistbloc of the Union backed out at thelast minute because it felt that noNazi should be dignified by beingallowed to appear upon the same plat-;form with its speaker, William Pat¬terson.Dean Requests PostponementThe executive committee of theUnion voted 5-4 to go ahead andhave the Nazi speak.

The indispensable chap¬ters can be read consecutively with¬out reference to the optional chapterssince the latter are starred in the in¬dex. The book, which contains 371pages, sells for $3.75.Of particular interest are the il¬lustrations. There are over 250 draw¬ings executed by Miss ElizabethBuchsbaum, sister of the author, inaddition to some 300 gravure photo¬graphs reproduced in green-blackrotogravure. The reproduction ofgravure photographs is an innova¬tion in this field although this type ofillustration has been used in part byanother New Plan textbook, “Downto Earth,” by Croneis and Krumbein.Mather PromisesAid to CourtierLast week, the Burton-Judson courtnewspaper. The Courtier, was givenassurance of a liberal subsidy by Mr.Mather. The paper’s cooperative at¬titude and improved make-up overlast year prompted him to put theCourtier on a substantial financialbasis. The Board of Control underthe guidance oi Harris Beck is nowattempting to widen the paper’s scopeand extend its activities to all thedormitories.The main result of its attitude isthe recent Burton-Judson organiza¬tion which could not have taken asmuch hold without The Courtier’srabid support. A general election washeld and Fred Grail and Jean Wied-ermann were chosen president andvice-president respectively. With sixothers comprising the organizationboard, they will attempt to sociallyunify Burton residents with theirmore apathetic Judson neighbors.Hopes run high for dormitory im¬provements through an active govern¬ing body. Athletic Director Metcalfhas suggested numerous athletic in¬novations, and the Board itself isconcerned with the courts’ InitialDance on December 10th. The nine New Plan textbooks, havereceived enthusiastic acceptance byinstitutions of higher learning allover the country, many of them hav¬ing effected changes in the coursesinto which they have been introduced.Although the original publicationdate was set for sometime in Sep¬tember to facilitate their use thisquarter, completion of the book wasdelayed and students in the BiologicalSurvey were issued “preprints” ofparts as they were printed.Exhibit Toy TrainsConstructed bySurgery ProfessorA group of 29 miniature railroadcars built by Dr. Hilgar Jenkins ofthe department of Surgery is on ex¬hibit in the north lounge of the Rey¬nolds Club this week.

OECagers Open Season AgainstNorth Central College SaturdayMurphy Twins, Jorgen¬sen Counted on to Bol¬ster Maroons.The basketball season, which opensSaturday with a warm-up gameagainst North Central College, mayprove a moderately successful one, orit may prove as disastrous as thegrid season. Chicago’s main hopes forBig Ten victories lie in the losses suf¬fered by their Conference opponentsby graduation, and in the showing ofthe Murphy twins and Art Jorgensen,Maroon tennis stars who played highschool basketball at Tilden and Par¬ker respectively.Starting for the Maroons in theirseason’s opener will be two letter-men. Dick Lounsbury, six foot fourinch Junior will be at the pivot posi¬tion, alternating with veteran RemyMeyer and Joe Stampf, big, speedysophomore. Lounsbury has had ex¬perience as a forward, and Meyerturned in some good games last yearas a guard, so they can fill in theseposts leaving two spots open for theMurphy boys.Cassels IneligibleCaptain Bob Cassels will be in¬eligible for the Maroon’s first sixgames, but it is expected that he willbe able to play for the Conferenceseason, which starts January 7 witha game against Minnesota.The basketeers will have a fullquota of football players out for thesquad with Meyer, and sophomoreWillis Littleford, Howie Hawkins,and Bob McNamee hitting the saw¬dust trail to the Fieldhouse to workout for the North Central game.Other candidates whose reservestrength may turn the Maroon darkhorse squad into a winning team in¬clude veterans Carl Stanley and Mor-rie Allen, Lynn Sorenson, Bob Mat¬thews, Ralph Richardson, and BobBigelow.Flag Flies High;Skating BeginsAt North StandsFor the first time this year, the redflag with the white spot flew over theNorth Stands yesterday afternoon,and the newly-organized ice hockeyteam managed to get in a short work¬out. Although most of the membersof the team did not know that therew'as to be a practice, about eight orten men were on hand and had aninformal session. In the future therewill be practices from 3 to 4:30 everyafternoon that there is ice.Much more emphasis is to be placedon skating in general this year, ac¬cording to Daniel Hoffer, coach ofhockey. In addition to hockey, heplans to inaugurate a figure skatingclub for those who are interested inthe more aesthetic aspects of iceskating.Optimistic About Hockey TeamWith regard to the hockey team.Coach Hoffer was very optimistic.Earlier in the fall, he estimated thatabout 35 men would turn out for thiswinter activity, and although theexact figures were not available yes¬terday, he said that just about thatnumber had signed up.“That is a very good number, con¬sidering the facilities,” he remarkedyesterday. Of those who have alreadycommitted themselves, there are ap¬proximately 14 freshmen, a figurewhich would seem to indicate thatthe interest in the sport which hasdeveloped during the past few yearswill not wane in years to come.Because of many unfortunate ex¬periences last year, Hoffer requestedthat all those who are intending topurchase new equipment for any formof skating see him for advice beforebuying anything. One man had apair of skates last year which were,“at least three inches too long,” asHoffer put it.Gustafson WinsIllinois Sabre TitleEd Gustafson, captain of the Ma¬roon fencing squad, proved himselfmaster of Illinois’ amateur fencersSunday when he beat 25 of the state’sbest in an Amateur Fencers’ Leagueof America meet at Bartlett Gym.Gustafson won the Senior Sabretitle of the Illinois division of theA.F.L.A. when he bested Gene Wil¬liams of the Edgewater A.C. whocame in second, and Jim Corbett, an¬other University fencer, who finishedthird.

Nel¬son Metcalf, director of athletics, andGeorge A. Works, dean of students,Kearns has made the same observa¬tions as appeared in the Daily Ma¬roon survey in Tuesday’s issue. Lackof material and the educational setupat the University, he found, are themain reasons for the Maroon’s un¬successful showing on the gridiron.Discounts “Cheating” ChargesAlthough charges have been heardthat Chicago regards other Big Tenschools as “cheating” to attract foot¬ ball material, Kearns discounted thi-accusation. “It is true that Chicagomay feel other schools are going beyond wholesome limits with regardto attracting athletes and keepingthem eligible. But Chicago give.sindication of belief that the abusesare general in this section,” he statedBaseball TeamMembers of the baseball teamare asked to report to the trophyroom in Bartlett today at noon.
