They FindFacts*> * *Herluf StrandskovJoseph SchwabHerluf Strandskov and JosephSchwab are best known to studentsinstructors in the Bi-Sci Surveycourse However, during the past fewyears they have been devoting a partof their time to studying genetics.Several years ago Strandskov at¬tacked the problem of whether inter¬nal organs such as the thyroid, ad¬renal, spleen, liver and kidneys arecontrolled by genes according to Men-delian laws as are external character¬istics such as eye color and hair color.For this experiment, he selected afamily of guinea pigs and storted in-breeding two strains, that is matingbrothers and sisters within both lines.After several years of this inbreedingtwo stocks were obtained in each ofwhich the guinea pigs were very sim-ilar in external characteristics al¬though very different from the pigsof the other stock.Since according to Mendel’s lawsinbreeding tends to produce homozy¬gous individuals, this similarity ofbrothers and sisters is exactly whatwas expected, as was the definitedissimilarity of the distant cousins,who, although originally descendedfrom the same family, are homozy¬gous with respect to different genes.If Mendel’s laws hold for internalorgans such as Ae liver and kidneysas well as for external characteristics,observation of these structures in thelaboratory pigs should show that theyare similar in a group, but that thestructures of one group as a wholeare different from those of the othergroup.The experiment turned out as ex¬pected, showing a high degree ofprobability that internal organs, aswell as the easily observed externalcharacteristics, are controlled bygenes according to Mendelian laws.This means, if results obtained fromobservation on guinea pigs may betransferred to a higher mammal,that our glands of internal secretion,and therefore much of our behavior,are affected by hereditary factors.Strandskov is now working on anexperiment similar to the one justcompleted, to see if bone structuresare also affected by genes. This pastsummer he also had occasion to study150 pairs of identical twins.Since genes are of such great im¬portance, not only in determining ourphysical makeup, but also in influenc¬ing our behavior, the field of geneticsis more fundamental than is often be¬lieved. One important problem thatconfronts students of genetics iswhether most genes affect most char¬acteristics, or merely have specificfunctions.* * *Two men, one of whom is JosephSchwab, have attempted to solve thisproblem. Briefly, ^hwab’s experi¬ment, involved comparison of 11stocks of fruit flies all probablyidentical except for one gene, the ef¬fects of which were easily observa¬ble. These genes had such obviouseffects as red eye color, or dumpywings. He studied the effects of thesesingle genes on an internal organchosen at random.His premise was that if the struc¬ture of this organ varied with thestocks, it would be highly probablethat this variation was caused by theone variable gene; namely, the oneproducing the visible effects. Sincethe 11 genes were chosen at random,and since the internal organ was alsoselected at random, it would also bevery probable that most genes affectmost characteristics.The result that the other man whoattempted this experiment obtainedshowed that every one of his genescausing obvious external variationsdistinctly affected the structure of theinternal organ. However Schwab gotquite different results. Of his 11 ex¬perimental stocks six showed simpledirect effects, while the other fiveshowed little, or no, effect, the effectsometimes varying under differentenvironmental conditions.Schwab’s results are somewhatmore welcome because they show thatthe relationship of gene to characteris simpler and therefore can be stud¬ied earlier. They are also possiblymore accurate because of two contri¬butions.4> * *The first of these was the methodof making the several stocks as sim¬ilar as possible, with the exception, of(Continued on page 3) \ Vol. 39, No. 40.

They alsoseek to answer the question of whoassociates with whom, as well as therelationship between associationalparticipation as such and social posi¬tion, according to Edward Shils, in¬structor in Social Science, who is alsoconnected with the survey.This study is part of a larger oneunder the direction of Wirth andCharles E.

Chapman, Woodward,Hamity Address Alumni,Prospective Freshmen.John Davepport and Robert Wasemwill head the football team for thecoming season, it was announced lastnight at the annual football banquetgiven by the Chicago Alumni Clubin Hutchinson Commons. The co-cap-tains are both juniors, Wasem play¬ing left end and Davenport playingin the backfield.The banquet which was attendedby a capacity crowd of students,alumni, and high-school studentsserved to acquaint prospective fresh¬men with the University and its ac¬complishments, both in the athleticand scholastic fields. For that rea¬son, although the dinner was in hon¬or of the football team, the speechesstressed all sides of college life atChicago.Come* to ChicagoIssuing a challenge to high-schoolstudents “to come to Chicago andprove to the public that athletic abil¬ity is compatible with scholasticachievement,” Captain Lew Hamitypraised the set-up at the Universitywhere “extra-curricular activity maybe engaged in at an institution wherean outstanding education may alsobe obtained.”Vice-President Frederick Wood¬ward, in his welcoming address stat¬ed the University policy in regardto athletics. “It is very simple,” hesaid. “Our athletic teams are com¬posed of students. We do not discrim¬inate either for or against athletes.”Stating that Chicago is just in themiddle of a slump, John Chapman,president of the Chicago Alumni Cluband chairman of the banquet, sug^gested that alumni make a deter¬mined effort to attract students ofcombined athletic and scholastic abil¬ity to Chicago. He also announcedthe results of a questionnaire sentto alumni asking for their sentimentson the football situation. Out ofhundreds of questionnaires returned,only three favored abolition of inter¬collegiate football.A rising vote of thanks was alsogiven to Coach Shaughnessy.“Never mind what we get, what dowe give?” This was the keynote ofa meeting of University men lastThursday, preliminary to organizinga local chapter of Alpha Phi Omega,national scouting fraternity.With service on four fronts the mo¬tive, this question will again be askedFriday evening at 8 during a partyand meeting in the South Lounge ofthe Reynolds for all past or presentScouters. Interspersed with typicalScout fireside entertainment will bean exposition of the backgnround ofthe fraternity and an elaboration ofits program.To Render ServiceAlpha Phi Omega was founded in1925 and now has 57 chapters atleading colleges and universities in thecountry. It was the purpose of thefounders to enable Scouts of collegeage to render the type of service forwhich they had been training sincethey first adopted the motto “Be Pre¬pared” in grammar school days.In order to be accepted as a chap¬ter, the local unit must have in opera¬tion a four-point program of service:(1) to the student body on campus;(2) -to the youth of America and ofthe world; (3) to the nation as par¬ticipating citizens; and (4) to themembers of the fraternity. The firstthree points have been tentativelydiscussed and a list of unmet campusneeds is being compiled.Call All ScoutsMembership in this service frater¬nity is open to all campus men whohave been connected with Scouting atany time. Not being concerned withthe usual social, housing, and feedingfunctions of fraternities. Alpha PhiOmega welcomes “greeks and non-greeks alike.”John S. Brown, a transfer fromBeta Gamma chapter of CentralYMCA College, Daniel Barnes, RobertSmitter, and Harry Beach are amongthe orgmizers. Professors StudyEmployment FieldOpen to YouthThree University professors, Wil¬liam F. Ogburn, Harry A. Millis, andFloyd B. Reeves, are part of an ad¬visory committee to Science ResearchAssociates, a non-profit corporationdevoted to the study of job possibil¬ities for youth.“We are primarily a research or¬ganization, providing information forhigh school and university vocationalcounselors to aid them in their work,”stated Lyle Spencer, who with Rob¬ert K. Burns, heads the organization.Both are former graduate studentsof the University.“Already we have discovered thatthe field of grade school teaching isbecoming more limited due to the de¬creased birth rate. This is especiallytrue for women, while new fields ofelementary teaching are opening upfor men in agricultural and vocation¬al subjects.New Fields Opening“On the other hand, one of thenewest fields for college women isacting as lighting advisers. Theseyoung women go into private homesand advise housewives on properlighting.“Statistical work is one of the fast¬est growing fields. There are innu¬merable opportunities for high schooland college graduates. Of course, theclerical work and routine calculationsare opened for high school students,while college people do more of theadministrative work. We have foundthat even in severe depressionsstatistical w’ork is not curtailed. Infact it oftentimes is increased.”Next month’s publication to voca¬tional guidance advisers will take upthe possibilities for success in a lawcareer.Page Two THE DAILY MAROON> WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1938“Slie ^aroonFOUNDED IN 1901MEMBER ASSOCIATED COLLEGIATEPRESSThe Daily Maroon is the official studentnewspaper of the University of Chicago,published mornings except Saturday, Sun¬day and Monday during the Autumn,Winter and Spring quarters by The DailyMaroon Company, 6831 University avenue.Telephones: Hyde Park 9221 and 9222.After 6:30 phone in stories to ourprinters.

This state¬ment is far more true of the brothersin question than of any other house,but like any attempt to describe atvpt‘. the type should not be over-j(emphasized.For years the Psi U’s have been'consistently active in campus affairs.This year four seniors have led thehouse in keeping up the tradition.These men, Webbe, Jones, Merriamand .Schnering among them hold thefollowing positions: Chairman of theStudent Social Committee, Editor ofthe Cap and Gown, Chairman of theHomecoming Committee, member ofthe I-F council, captain of the waterpolo team, three memberships in Owland Serpent, and two Marshals.The Sophomoi'e and Junior classeshaven’t been as successful as the sen¬iors although they have men inRlackfriars, the Student PublicityBoard, the Reynolds Club Council,the Social Committee, intramurals,the Cap and Gown, and the Maroon.Notable weaknesses in activities istheir failure to maintain the tradi¬tion of Psi U dominance in Black-fi iars, and the lack of men on Pulseand the Maroon. There are no Psi U’s jon the former, and only one on the:latter. jFor a large house Psi Upsilon isonly fairly strong in athletics. How¬ever the Sophomore class has many;potential stars, ten of the 16 membersof the delegation having won numer¬als in football, basketball, baseball,wrestling, or tennis. Psi U’s have wonjackets in football, tennis, andjwater polo. jIn addition to Psi U’s winning!honors as individuals they have had!several succe.sses in group activities, jLast year they won first place in in¬tramural competition for the third jsuccessive year to win the intramuraltrophy, and also took first place in theinterfraternity sing to win the qual¬ity cup. This latter was something ofan upset as they usually win the(luantity cup but have never beforedone so well in competition for theother trophy. So far this year theyhave taken second in the Victory Van¬ities.With 42 men in the house, Psi Up¬silon is financially sound. The houseis one of the three at Chicago thatwas specifically built as a fraternityhouse, and is consequently quite a bitbetter than average. The 20 men liv¬ing in the house pay $59 a month andthe men living at home pay $18 amonth for five meals a week, dues,and a parlor fee for subscriptions topublications and general upkeep. Theinitiation fee, which includes a lifesubscription to the national fraternitymagazine, is $75.From various comments I gatherthat yesterday’s article sounded en¬tirely too much is if it were written bya brother ZBT. Today, to avoid anycriticism of this sort I point out thefollowing weaknesses in the Psi They have special assessmentsfor some social events such as hou.sefunctions and the Three-Way Partywhich average about two dollars amonth. They are traditionally dislikedby the Dekes. The sophomore andjunior delegations have not assertedthemselves in campus activities aswell as they should.All in all Psi Upsilon is an ex¬ceptionally strong fraternity. Na¬tionally, with 25 active chapters thefirst of which was founded in 1833, itranks well. The local chapter, the*>mega, was founded in 1860 and hasregularly ranked among the firstthree. Now the house is as strong asever, the greatest strength in num¬bers and in personality lying in theJ^ophomore and junior delegations,and the greatest success in campusactivity in the senior class.Salvemini LecturesOn Social SciencesContinuing his series of four lec¬tures on “History and Social Sci¬ences—Are They Sciences?’’ Gaetano^alvemini, lecturer in History atHarvard and prominent anti-fascist,"’ill discuss “Why History and theSocial Sciences Elude ScientificTreatment’’ in Mandel Hall at 4:30this afternoon. The lectures, underthe auspices of the Division of theSocial Sciences, will conclude tomor-yben Salvemini speaks on “FromHumility to Tolerance.” Expect Directory MistakesWill Bring Campus ChaosNow that the Student Directory isout, the complaints are pouring in.Chief complaint was the late date atwhich it was edited. Names that weremisspelled brought glares from Leon¬ard Turovlin and Ivan Heisler, amongothers, while a long ^ wail of woeemitted from the Phi Psi house be¬cause the exchange of their telephonenumber was listed as Dorchester in¬stead of Hyde Park. Walter Young,Advertising Manager of Cap andGown and loyal Phi Psi, changed asmany as he could, but the men stillaren’t convinced that the house won’tbe dismal, dank, and silent.Freshmen Allan Klein, Bill Gibler,and Seymour Hirschburg look wist¬fully at the pages where their namesshould be, and aren’t. Bob Sass, HughRendleman, and Lee Huett wereamazed to find that there were nu¬merous new fraternities on campus,they were especially dumbfounded ondiscovering that they belonged to PhiKappa Upsilon, Psi Tau, and Chi Up¬silon, respectively.Where’s Van de WaterGreatest stir was aroused when thestory went around that John Van deWater was not listed, a frantic searchwas made; finally Johnny turned upin the late V’s under a Mrs. EvalynBrinkman. Everyone still wants toknow what she was doing there.Chuck O’Donnell, Bill Boutell, andRobert Hughes feel that they shouldhave been given their fraternityrating.Best joke of the directory was Capand Gown editor Phil Schnering get¬ting the wrong middle initial; in hisown publication too; while in the Ma¬roon office, Adele Rose is hoping thatEmmett Deadman doesn’t get tooAbbott of S.S.A.Goes to WashingtonMiss Grace Abbott of the SocialService Administration Departmentwill be in Washington, D.

The Office of the Dean ofStudents was approached on thequestion and they said that they“would see what could be done aboutit.”Mass meetings and Peace Strikespas.sed in review as the years wenton and still the ASU was an organi¬zation with nothing but a faculty ex¬change number to use on their let¬terhead. When Social Science 105,106,and 107 were just beginning to ac¬quire an unofficial ASU atmospherethe University at last gave its mo¬mentous decision.Last Friday the ASU opened theirofficial headquarters in Lexington16. The wandering child has comehome at last.Rabbi Lazaron TalksAt JSF ServicesThe Jewish Student Foundation ispresenting Rabbi Morris S. Lazaron asguest speaker at the Maccabean serv¬ices Sunday in Rockefeller Chapel.Rabbi Lazaron of the Baltimore He¬brew Congregation ’n Baltimore,Maryland, speaks often on nationalbroadcasts of religious services.Each year Purim and Chai.ukahservices are presented by outstandingAmerican Jews, last year’s being con¬ducted by Rabbi Stephen S. Wise. Im¬mediately following the service.’which start at 4:30, supper will beserved in the Cloister Club at IdaNoyes Hall, to which students, their Iparents, and friends are invited. ^many late calls, — because the Direc¬tory so generously gave Emmett hertelephone number.Commutes From BuffaloNot unlike the Man Without aCountry are Ralph Sticht, Paul Zim¬merman, and this reporter who arepeople with a home. According tothe Directory Ralph commutes dailyfrom Buffalo, New York; Paul is aDallas, Texan.Elsie Teufel’s telephone numberwas neglected entirely, and VirginiaMilcarek wants to know how out-of-towner’s will find out what the Abein front of her number means whenit isn’t listed in the exchanges.Special praise from Demarest Pola-check for spelling his name correct¬ly. Usually it is listed as D. T. butnow Demmy will no longer be as¬sociated with “delirium tremors.”Add Gospel of MarkTo ManuscriptsWith the addition of the Gospelof Mark and fragments of threeGreek lectionaries to its collection ofNew Testament manuscripts, thisquarter the University has one ofthe most rapidly growing collectionsof this kind in the country. The 32manuscripts lodged in the Rare Bookroom at Harper constitute the secondlargest New Testament library inAmerican universities.Begun in 1895, gathering of the“Haskell Gospels” was not seriouslyattended to until Edgar J. Goodspeed,former Chairman of the Departmentof New Testament Languages andEarly Christian Literature, discover¬ed a valuable manuscript at a Parisshop in 1929. He published this, at¬tracting widespread interest in theUniversity collection, and securingpatrons for it. In 1937, the only il¬lustrated manuscript of the Book ofRevelations in existence was ac¬quired.Containing 18 miniatures, the textof the Gospel of Mark, though writ¬ten in the fourteenth century, is veryearly in type. Goodspeed and HaroldWilloughby, associate professor ofNew Testament Literature, are study¬ing it and hope to publish it in thefuture. Medical Missionary[Jrg es Boycott ofJapanese Goods“One pair of silk stockings paysfor four bullets,” Walter H. Judd,medical missionary to China, told hisaudience yesterday at the first of aseries of meetings called to deal withthe refugee aid problem. “We mustrefuse to buy Japanese silk.”The boycott, he stated, is the mostimportant form of action Americanscan take to aid China and to harmJapan. Other points in his four-plankplatform for action, however, includethe constant exercise of citizenshipby every voter in the form of lettersto his elected representatives, assist¬ance by every citizen in the enlighten¬ment of his community and moneycontributions.The Japanese, Judd opened hislecture, are chiefly concerned withbreaking down Chinese morale, rath¬er than merely with fighting.He explained that Chinese life hasfor centuries been centered in thehome, and that attacks on woman¬hood thus have a devastating effecton Chinese morale.“The destruction of schools,” hecontinued, “has been nearly as crush¬ing. China’s heroes have always beenscholars. This insult to them is asimportant in breaking down Chineseresistance as the actual killing ofsoldiers.”“The United States navy is beingbuilt up,” he said, “ostensibly becauseof the potential threat of Japan. Lastyear, 54 per cent of Japanese warmaterial came from the UnitedStates. It is hard to understand whythe United States should deliberatelybuild up the power which she feelswill soon be her greatest enemy.”Entertain SeniorsFrom High SchoolsThe fall program of the StudentPublicity Board gathered speed lastSaturday at a tea given for about 50suburban high school girls at IdaNoyes.

Hedid this by taking each of the 11laboratory stocks and crossing itagain and again to a stock in whichall the genes were homozygous, thustending to make the laboratorystocks alike.Schwab’s other important contribu¬tion to this study was the applicationof a statistical technique called anal¬ysis of variance. This was a meansfor the statistical evaluation of asmany causes of error as possible.Schwab is now starting another ex¬periment which he expects will givefurther and more accurate evidenceon the problem of whether mostgenes affect most organs. In thisstudy he plans to x-ray wholly hom¬ozygous stock until mutations occur,at which time he will be able to studythe effects of the mutated genes witha larger degree of certainty thatwhatever effects are produced are dueonly to the mutated genes.—JOHN STEVENS.SECRETARIAL CAREERSfor University PeopleCompleta SecretarialStenography . . . 6 months4 months^ InvestiKBte Thomas NaturalShorthand.

The ghost ofthe Armour team suggested that Chi¬cago schedule a series of intercol¬legiate touchball games—games inwhich blocking might be employed,but games in which the main factorswould be speed and clever ballhandling.The Barristers showed convincinglythat they had the speed, stamina, andcoordination necessary to turn out agood touchball team. Add to that, ex¬perience in blocking and you’d have agame that would have the audienceappeal of basketball and footballcombined.The big obstacle in the way of suc¬ceeding in an intercollegiate touchballventure would be the difficulty of se¬curing competition for the Chicagoteams. But if Chicago could work upa schedule in which it could play suchuniversities as Armour, Johns Hop¬kins, and other schools where footballis de-emphasized as it unfortunatelyis at Chicago, it would provide achance for the grandstand athletes tohave their day as well as the com¬petitors themselves.A minor proof of the fact that thegame would be interesting to specta¬tors lies in the fact that about sixtystalwarts from Armour Tech bravedthe drizzle to see—a mere touchballgame. There were about thirty Chi¬cagoans out in the rain, too. And re¬member, Chicago still has a football•team.The game would be as exciting towatch as football because it would bean open game, easily observable fromthe stands. Hutchins’ ten cent gatereceipt idea could be employed, and alot of people would be willing to comeout and see a really good game—agame that is basketball minus drib¬bling played on a hundred yard field.4i * :(■Armour got all worked up overthe Chicago type of game. They wereat a terrific disadvantage playing theChicago rules, which they claimedthe Maroons made up as they wentalong. Blocking is illegal, and Ar¬mour, who had been blocking was up-^!et and didn’t know how to penetratethe Chicago defense.It would have been pretty tough tomarch through the Barristers any¬how, though. The University champsplayed their best game of the year.Chuck Longacre, Jim Brown, andGrant Adams, all ex-football men,who would have made it hot forArmour even if both teams had usedblocking, caught everything that wasthrown within ten feet of them, andLongacre’s passing was as good asthe Maroon varsity at its best.4> * »We’d like to see the Barristers playthe regular Maroon squad in a touch-ball game in which blocking isn’tallowed. It’s a better than even betthat the lawyers would trounce thevarsity—and that’s no crack at theMaroons. The Barristers have at leastthree ex-gridders and five cage men,and every one of them is fast.

Last year heset a new scoring record for hisschool, ringing up 250 points, andfrom the looks of the box score ofthe Valpo game, he’s out to betterhis own record.

Zimmerman^ TexasState Star^ AidsFreshman TeamBy LESTER DEANIt is generally conceded that “ring¬ers” are conspicuous by their absenceat the University; it seems, however,that without the University’s offer¬ing any inducements, Paul Zimmer¬man, a man who might very con¬ceivably have become a pro some¬where else, has elected to come toChicago.Although he was named as a for¬ward on the All State high schoolbasketball team in Texas, Zimmer¬man was not, strictly speaking, oneof the chosen few, for he was ineli¬gible during the last half of last sea¬son. Before he was barred, however,he had been picked as the captainof the mythical team by the sportswriters of the state.“Zimm” is particularly adept at ballhandling, and is, of course, a verygood shot. His height is against him,for most of the best cagers are six-footers or more, while Paul is about5’ 9.” He more than makes up forthis deficiency, though, by his agilityand speed.He began his career with a basketin his back yard, and “was raised onthe game.” His freshman year inhigh school was in Wichita, Kans.,where he played his first competitiveball. Following that, his family movedto Dallas, where “Zimm” played fortwo years on the Woodrow Wilsonhigh school team. Last year the teambecame state champions when theywon the annual state tournament inDallas.Zimmerman rates high in the opin¬ion of the coaches. Westbrook Pegler, nationallyknown newspaper columnist is thelatest critic to find fault with RobertMaynard Hutchins’ stand on foot¬ball as it was stated in the Presi¬dent’s article “Why Not Ten CentFootball Games” which appeared re¬cently in the Saturday Evening Post.Stating that “Hutchins’ piece islargely a repetition of many old andfamiliar complaints against footballand that he misplaced the overem¬phasis,” Pegler refuses to give thePresident more than a lower-case“d” on his article.Praising President Hutchins forhis work as an educator, Peglerfinds that many students in collegesare juveniles and knowledge-proofpeople who want amusement andthat football fills their need. “Abol¬ish football, or de-emphasize it, asMr. Hutchins suggests, and the en¬rollment over the land would slumptoward that point where only stu¬dents capable of education would re¬main in school, or slightly less thana quorum for the Yale Bowl,” Peglerconcluded.President Hutchins’ football standmay also have been a factor in thedecision of the Big Ten against en¬gaging the Pacific Coast footballchampions in the annual Rose Bowlgame.
