Z-149 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1938 Price Three CentsUniversity Inaugurates Special SemesterCourses for First-Year StudentsPolacheck Carries Weightof ASU Theater Group PlaysBy DegreesPhilosophy Department i* * ♦ }There are about 30 students in thephilosophy department, whose onlycommon characteristics are a capacityfor hard work and the desire to talkshop any place, any time, Maid-Rite,football game, or formal dance. Noneof them are collegiate, and apparent¬ly none desire to be.The department itself is in a transi¬tional stage, in which, in spite of theformulation and mimeographing of aset of degree requirements, lack of co¬ordination of materials and agree¬ment among professors leaves thestudent somewhat vague as to whathe is really supposed to learn. Theformulated requirements cannot betaken too literally; if they were, itRICHARD P. McKEONwould take about five years of hardlabor to master the material consid¬ered essential to candidacy for aPh. D.Dean McKeon deserves specialmention for disagreeing with more ofhis colleagues more actively thananybody else in the department—heand Jaeger advocate diametricallyopposed interpretations of Aristotle’s.Metaphysics, for example—but he isno unique phenomenon. The logicians,probably one of the best collectionsever assembled, represent interestingdifferences of opinion among them¬selves, both in the structure and in¬terpretations of their logical theories.Most outspoken among them seems tobo Professor Morris Cohen; but Mor¬ris, Carnap, Russell, McKeon, andBenjamin all have ideas of their own.Of the three fields into whichphilosophy is divided like all Gaul—logic, axiology, and cosmology—^thelatter is fought over by McKeon andHartshorne, the former of whom in¬sists that metaphysics is only pos¬sible in an Aristotelian, the latter on¬ly in a Platonic tradition. This pre¬sents a gap rather difficult for theprospective degree candidate in thisfield to bridge to the mutual satisfac¬tion of his professors.Axiology, or theory of value, weak¬ened by T. V. Smith’s jaunt into prac¬tical politics, must rely on courses inrelated departments to supplementits work in aesthetics and politicalscience. This involves inter-depart¬mental conflicts of interpretation ofmajor proportions.This period of transition seems tohave a remarkably good effect on thepreparation of the students who haveto learn to do their own evaluatingand interpreting, and probably willhave a good effect on the morale ofthose who survive this somewhat rig¬orous educational process. Honors forresearch so far seem to fall to Mc-Keon’s group of students, who areworking mainly on historical prob¬lems, and working them out in detail.Last year, for example, Alan Ge-Wirtz read a paper to the philosophyclub which suggests a permanent andaccurate solution to the much-dis¬puted question of the existence of alogical circle in Descartes’ Medita¬tions. But persons more anxious toacquire degrees and to set aboutteaching than to have their thir.'»tforknowledge indefinitely gratifiedwould do well to major elsewhere.Students in the department includeG. Kimball Plochman, fellow, who,like a shepherd in some happy pas¬toral state, whiles away his leisureplaying a flute in Hitchcock Hall;Thomas B. Stauffer, who studiespolitical theory at night and spend.shis waking daytime hours pa.ssinghappily from Coffee Shop to tea toInt-House; Abiaham Kaplan, whoseend in life is to think in symboliclogic; Ben Ritchie, president of thephilosophy flub, happily married butworried about getting a degree; Rob¬ert Brumbaugh, considered too col-\ I Discuss ValueOf Jesus inModern LifeThe last meeting of Chapel Unionfor the quarter will be held in DeanGilkey’s home, 6802 Woodlawn, Sun¬day evening at 7:30. Dr. Ernest C.Colwell, chairman of the Departmentof the New Testament and of theDivinity Conference, will speak onthe subject of “What Can the Reli¬gion of Jesus Contribute to ModemLife?”An instructor at the University forten years. Dr. Colwell is addressingthe Chapel Union members for thefirst time. He is the author of sev¬eral books on the New Testament anda graduate of the University DivinitySchool. He was appointed to the po¬sition of Chairman of the New Testa¬ment Department and Divinity Con¬ference early this summer.Everyone interested in the subjectto be discussed, whether member ornon-member, is invited to participate.This week, since there will be no othercommittee meetings, the combinedgroups will meet at Dean Gilkey’shome.The weekly Student-Faculty Lunch-eon today in Hutchinson Commonswill have as faculty guests DavidGrene of the Humanities Department,James T. Watkins, instructor in Po¬litical Science and Albert H. Carterof the College English Department.This group will meet from 12 until1:30.String QuartetGives ChamberMusic ConcertsThe Forum String Quartet willpresent the first of a series of fourchamber music concerts at 8:15 to¬night in Room A of InternationalHouse. The Quartet, under the au¬spices of the Federal Music Project,will present a program of three num¬bers.Quartet in B Flat Major Opus76.. .HaydnQuartet in D Major Opus 18, No.3... BeethovenQuartet in C Major (Kochel No.465).. .Mozart.Israel Baker, first violin, AlbertBlacker, second violin, Samuel Gor-bach, viola, and Israel Greenfield,cello, are the members of the Quar¬tet. Alternate members are FritzSiegal, concert-meister of the IllinoisSymphony Orchestra, Marion Hall,piani.st, and Jenska Slebos, cellist.The music committee of the Inter¬national House has arranged a seriesof four chamber music concerts tobe held tomorrow, January 13, Feb¬ruary 17, and March 10, at an admis¬sion price of 35 cents. Otto Reischer,chairman of the committee, was in¬strumental in securing the servicesof the quartet for the evening. It isplanned to have other groups ofequal ability at future concerts.legiate by the rest of the departmentbecause he possesses a major “C”and an Esoteric girl friend; ManleyThompson, whose idea of a perfectevening is winning a discussion aboutAristotle’s theory of the elementswith Herman Bernick, fellow expert.Other interesting figures who passin and out of the philosophy library,Harper fifth floor, include Helen Ehr¬lich, the department’s sole ray offemininity, who reads books aboutHobbies and things; Norman Dalkey,who would like to determine thetruth-value of Fermat’s sentence be¬fore Kaplan; Alan GeWirtz, abovementioned, ex-wrestler from Colum¬bia and accomplished Latinist; andM. B. Singer, sober-minded graduatelogician.All of them want Ph, D.’s, but theytake many and devious routes towardgetting them. A greater variety ofextra-departmental activity would behard to find in a group twice thissize: and perhaps the main reasonwhy philosophy students talk philos¬ophy when they are together is thattheir other interests are so different.t,. By MARIAN CASTLEMANGood entertainment -characterizedthe ASU Theater Group plays givenlast night in Reynolds Club Theater.Although most of the weight of theshow was carried on the capableshoulders of Demarest Polacheck, thegeneral caliber of performance wasgood enough to maintain the interestof the audience throughout. Howeverwhat might have been a truly memor¬able evening in the history of campusdramatics was marred by ineffectivescenery, occasional lapses in charac¬terization, and a starting play whosepurple melodrama would certainlyhave sent the audience home in ahurry if not for the magnetic qualityof Polacheck’s portrayal.This first play, “The Secret” byRamon Sender, concerned revolution¬ary Spain. There were many similar¬ities in its plot and that of the lastplay, “Soldadera”. Otto Schlesingerand Perry Lessin showed some insightin their portrayals, although theywere completely dominated by Pola¬check.The same is true of the second play“A Marriage Proposal” by AntonChekhov. Lucille Halperin and FrankWiener were certainly fine in theirgrasp of the comedy, but once againShag to AlterCoaching Style“I’ve been thinking about a changein my coac. ing style for quite a whileand I’m going to change for nextyear.” Thus spoke Maroon CoachClark Shaughnessy when interviewedby James Kearns of the Daily Newsas to his plans for next year.“My first objection is to the mentalload that football has been to oursquad. Briefly, I hope to abolish thisby shifting the emphasis of the coach¬ing. I plan to concentrate more onexecution of plays,” Shag continued.Stating several weeks ago to a DailyMaroon reporter that Chicago didpossess the physical prowess of otherschools and that their best hope re¬mained in outsmarting the otherteam. Coach Shaughnessy had at¬tempted to teach the players a largenumber of plays and several varietiesof offense and defense which couldn’tbe used at intervals.However, because of the heavymental load that the players are car¬rying, Shaughnessy feels that foot¬ball is an added burden. The changehe thinks will “make the team look alot different!”Merriam, BrownlowGo to WashingtonActing in his unofficial capacity asan adviser on problems of govern¬ment organization, Charles E, Mer-riam, professor of Political Science,and Louis Brownlow, head of thePublic Administration Clearing House,were called to Washington yesterdayfor a conference with the President.Their services are needed in draftinga new government reorganization billto replace the one that was defeatedin the last session of Congress. Ac¬cording to White House attaches thepresent discussions will be prepara¬tory to drawing up the new bill.Merriam and Brownlow have beenactive before in lending assistance togovernmental agencies.Sandberg-V avalaTalks on Italian ArtMadame Evelyn Sandberg-Vavala,authority on primitive Italian art,will lecture on “Landscapes and In¬teriors in Italian Art of the 13th and14th Centuries” Monday evening at8:15 in Classics 10. This speech, spon¬sored by the Renaissance Society, isone of a number of public lecturesMadame Sandberg-Vavala is givingthroughout the United States. Polacheck overshadowed them. As acomedian he beats anything seen oncampus for some time.Technique GoodTechnically the first two plays wentoff smoothly. Lighting and make-upwas good if not exceptional, and thetempo was maintained rather well.This was not so true of the lastplay, “Soldadera” by Joseph Nig-gli. There were four or five roughspots and lighting, make-up andscenery detracted from the total ef¬fectiveness. All parts but one weretaken by women. Of these ShirleyMeyerson, Eleanor Brash and MarionRappaport showed much ability. Es¬pecially does Rappaport deservepraise for a difficult role well handled,with only occasional lapses into whatseemed to be an over-directed arti¬ficiality. Eleanor Brash must be givencredit for doing her part more nat¬urally and convincingly than anyother woman in the entire program.But one fact glared in last night’sperformance. That was that Demar¬est Polacheck is the ASU TheaterGroup. What will happen when he de¬parts is anybody’s guess.Rippy Speaks atYM College onForeign Policy“Never shake thy gory locks atus!” is the reply that Fred J. Rippy,professor of American His^pry, willfling at American accusers fromEurope in a lecture at the DowntownYMCA, 19 S. LaSalle, tonight. Pro¬fessor Rippy is to speak at the Cen¬tral YMCA College to a joint meetingof the faculty, student body, and gen¬eral public, on the subject, “Munichand American Responsibility.”“In spite of American aloofness,”declares Professor Rippy, “Europebetween the years of 1925 and 1930,seemed to solve her own internation¬al problems. This so impressed Amer¬ican observers that the well knowmjournalist, Frank Simonds, in 1927,wrote a book called “How EuropeMade Peace Without America.”Blames France, EnglandSince 1931, Rippy feels, the UnitedStates has revealed a greater feelingfor co-operation and the growth ofthe totalitarian states has been dueto the temerity of France and Eng¬land. “Yet,” he added, “The UnitedStates may yet have to considerwhether it is better to confront theaggressors in Europe or wait untilthey attack.”Thus, Professor Rippy is sure thatthe United States need not assumeresponsibility for conditions i nEurope today. “Should the ghosts ofthe decadent power and greatness ofFrance and England some day ap¬pear in Washington, the head of thisnation could say without qualms ofconscience, ‘Thou canst not say thatthe United States did it. Never shakethy gory locks at us!’”.Lazaron Speaks inChapel Sunday“The Common Destiny of theChristian and Jew” is the subject ofan address by Morris Lazaron, Rabbiof the Baltimore Hebrew Congrega¬tion, in Rockefeller Memorial ChapelSunday at 11.

Two College Courses LetHigh School GraduatesEnter This Winter.Midyear high school graduateshereafter will be able to enter theUniversity to continue their collegework without loss of time. PresidentRobert M. Hutchins said yesterday inannouncing the inauguration of spe¬cial semester courses. Because of theUniversity’s quarter system, Januaryhigh school graduates have been at adisadvantage from a time standpoint.The new semester courses at theUniversity will be offered for the firsttime at the end of next month, open¬ing on Monday, January 30, threedays after the high school semestergraduation.Offer Two CoursesThe general survey course in thebiological sciences and the collegecomposition course will be offered theincoming freshmen. These two coursesare offered because most studentstake them in their first year on theMidway. The usual freshman takeseither three or four courses and thespecial work therefore will enable anew student to carry somewhat morethan half a year’s program.In addition, the semester graduatesmay enter one other class for whichthey have the necessary qualifications,beginning this course either in Feb¬ruary or at the opening of the SpringQuarter late in March. The tuitionfee for the semester’s study will be$150, half the yearly tuition.All mid-semester students will beeligible for scholarships on the samebasis as those entering in the autumnunder the quarter system. All schol¬arships, including those won in thecompetitive examinations in thespring, those given on the basis ofhigh school grades, and those givenunder the Noyes fund for descendantsof war veterans, will not be appliedon a student’s tuition, however, untilthe ojiening of the new college yearin the autumn.Applications for admission for mid¬year entrance must be made not laterthan January 23.Neivsreel Revives^Magnificent Brute^With the co-operation of the Build¬ing and Grounds representative toimprove the projection and sound,the University Newsreel will revive“The Magnificent Brute” today at3:30 in Mandel Hall and at 8 inKent Theatre.This picture, filmed about twoyears ago, stars Victor McLaglin, whowill be remembered for his work in“The Informer” for which he won anAcademy award. Besides McLaglin,the cast includes Binnie Barnes, JeanDixon, Ann Preston and EdwardNorris. It was the first popular pic¬ture ever filmed inside a steel mill.Special permission had to be securedfrom the Universal Studios to presentthis sound revival.Almost one half of the newsreelpictures taken of fraternities over thelast week have been devloped andreviewed by the staff of the News¬reel and are reported to be satisfac¬tory.Rushing ViolationIt has been officially reportedand admitted that on Wednesdaynight the Chi Psi’s violated therushing rules by entertaining sev¬eral freshmen at the play “Susanand God” and afterwards takingthem out for refreshments.The Interfraternity Committeeinterprets this as an admi.ssion onthe part of the Chi Psi fraternitythat they are unable to obtain apledge class by conforming to thespirit and letter of the regulations.The I-F committee is publishingthis as a formal rebuke in accord¬ance with Article I of the rushingrules.Page Two THE DAILY MAROON.

F. ReynoldsOur Own DiesInvestigationIn the week and a half sinceMr. Dies brought forth thestartling news that the Ameri¬can Student Union was an of¬ficial agent of Red Russia andas such owed the United Statesgovernment the usual $1,000bond, we have been puzzlingover the motive behind this ac¬tion. There is political expedi¬ency in attacking Harold Ickesand Harry Hopkins, the CIOand the New Deal, but a Diescommittee investigation of theASU raises that organization tothe position of a political force.Even its most enthusiastic mem¬bers admit that the ASU hasn'tthat much influence.Perhaps the explanation canbe found in last year's conven¬tion, to which not only Mr. Ickesbut also President Rooseveltsent greetings. This probablyraised Mr. Dies' ready suspi¬cions to the point where he be¬gan to believe all that he hadread in the National Republican,the Magazine of FundamentalAmericanism.Mr. Dies began his survey ofthe ASU and other questionableyouth organizations in Cleve¬land last week. His itinerarywill soon take him to Chicago.The Political Union has alreadyextended to him an invitation todebate on the campus. To makethings easier for him when hedoes get here, we have conduct¬ed an advance investigation ofcampus activities.Our own Dies investigation iscompletely disappointing; thereis no hint of scandal in it. Sucha reputedly radical organizationas the Ellis Co-operative turnsout to be leaning so far towardsreaction that it has memberswho feel that the eating clubshould take absolutely no polit¬ical stands. The American Stu¬dent Union, Mr. Dies' whitehope in the investigation, hasonly two Communists on an ex¬ecutive committee of fifteen.Other possible sites of Commu¬nist agitation, the Peace Coun¬cil and the ASU Theatre Group,have respectively none and one.The Campus Congress Commit¬tee has one, the Refugee AidCommittee has two, and theModel World Congress, whichmight be condemned as an advo¬cate of un-American interna¬tionalism, heard a report byonly one University radical. Thedelegation at the Model Con¬gress representing the USSRwas a group of highly conserv¬ative one-hundred per centersfrom Milwaukee State Teacher'sCollege.Since there are 57 YoungCommunists on campus, most of TravellingBazaarWoman: the Anti-social SexBy Isadore Richlin, author of lastyear’s Blackfriar’s Show "Where inthe World.”I have before me a clipping froman article by Gelett Burgess in amagazine entitled, “Your Life.” Ijudge from the intimate title that itis a woman’s magazine. I wouldn’tknow; I shun woman’s magazines.The last time I peeked between thecovers of one (I was desperate—stranded in Wilkes-Barre—and it wasthe only reading matter in the roombesides the handsomely printed copyof the rules and regulations govern¬ing inns and hotels in Pennsylvania)I was so frightened that I had anight-mare three nights in a row.And it was the same one each time:something about Savonarola, and be¬ing entwined in an enormous sheet oflastex—it was horrible. I have atheory that corset designers spendtheir spare moments reading aboutthe Spanish inquisition and writingfor the horror and/or amazing pulpmagazines.But I wander. Mr. Burgess, withthe same keen insight that character¬izes his poignant verse about the pur¬ple cow, has the following to say,“. . . women have brushed aside alltraditions of courtesy and considera¬tion as regards smoking. Womendon’t and probably never will under¬stand thp philosophy and ideal ofgood form that men have as regardsthe use of tobacco. They’re not evenamateurs, bless ’em. They’re comedi-ans • • •The use of the cigarette by womenis really nothing more or less thanan extension of what I have namedthe “hat-pin complex.” There is noth¬ing so dangerous, nothing quite sofoolhardy as kissing a woman who isholding a cigarette. They know it,and we know it, and they know weknow it. Which makes it cozy. Inthe pre-war days the same functionwas served, but less efficiently, Iclaim, by the hat-pin. You see, thereare, in a. given situation, just twokinds of women: those who want*tobe kissed and those who don’t wantto be. There are some women whothink that they haven’t made up theirminds but they’re wrong: deep downinside they have made their choice. Inthe case of those who don’t want tobe kissed the cigarette is a powerfuldeterrent. Let those oldsters whoclaim that a jab of the hat-pin waspainful consider carefully the proba¬ble effects of a live coal applied withconsiderable pressure to the nape ofthe neck. I hardly feel called upon tocensure . the little darlings who dothis, or who threaten, either openlyor by implication. After all, theyshould have some voice as to whetherthey’re kissed or not. It’s in thehands of the other class that thecigarette is dangerous.A girl who really wants to bekissed, one who has really worked upsome enthusiasm for the idea, shouldno more be trusted with a cigarettethan a three-month-old baby with arazor blade. I do not exaggerate whenI say that fortunes in the men’s gar¬ment trade have been amassed be¬cause of cigarettes which have burnttheir way through coats and vests (afriend of mine even claims throughthem ambitious and far fromshy, all this might indicate thatthe radicals are a better guar¬antee of the purity of youth or¬ganizations than Mr. Dies him¬self. Even in the ASU campusCommunists are careful to re¬tire wlien they hear a hint ofCommunist domination.The ulterior motive may bethe hope that everyday contactwith liberals will deepen thetint of their liberalism. What¬ever it may be, and whateverthe motive, the fact remainsthat Communists are cautiouslykeeping as undominant as pos¬sible in youth organizations onthe campus.The Tribune's favorite com¬mittee has not yet openly ac¬cused liberals of being subver¬sive. And there is little point ininvestigating Trotskyites, So¬cialists, and Communists, whotake an accusation of radicalismas a great compliment. Sorry,Mr. Dies. You may as well cometo visit the University. It willbe a restful vacation. shirts, undershirts and the first layerof the skin) as women have co-oper¬ated in getting kissed. I understandfrom conversations with men whowent through the experience that thehat-pin was just as reliable in 1898as is the cigarette in 1938, that anawkwardly managed hat-pin couldeasily pierce to the bone a young gal¬lant who was doing no more than hisduty by a girl who wanted to bekissed. Frankly, kissing a woman hasalways been a hazardous occupation.But let us not become so involvedwith a discussion of the cigarette andwomen as to miss the broader impli¬cations of the situatioi). I must pointout that woman’s assumption of thetobacco habit falls directly in linewith her immemorial function ofplacing obstacles in the path of sexand love. Since Mother Eve’s inven¬tion of clothes and the dirty mind,woman has occupied herself with thethinking up of hurdles for men tohurdle. If women really meant to benasty about the whole thing, it M’ouldbe an unforgivable fault. Fortunate¬ly, they are just as false as their eye¬lashes; they’re just being perverse.Their pretense at utter ignorance inthe days of good queen Vic, and theirplacing the he-she problem upon thesame basis as a problem in solidgeometry nowadays are but two facesof the same attitude. Women like tothink and talk about sex and all thatin much the same way as a thorough¬going alcoholic likes to talk and thinkabout drink. Certainly it was a wom¬an who first said, “Sex as a diversionis highly over-rated; it must be madea life-work.”Man, on the other hand, is less con¬cerned. And so women must schemeto interest them and to impress themwith the importance of the boy-and-girl setup. The man (in those caseswhere the game seems to be worththe candle) is willing to play along.If that’s the way the world is, hefigures, he’ll just accept it. Man isnot so interested in the subject as toconsider it worthwhile to undertakeall the effort a change in these moreswould involve. Sex, say men, is in¬teresting enough in its place andmore than passably amusing; I oftenwonder whether it would be consid¬ered as important as it is if therewere no women.Letters to theEditorBoard of Control,Daily Maroon:Everyone who heard Dr. Juddspeak last Wednesday on his personalexperiences and observations i nChina, realized more clearly than everthat the less articulate are Ameri¬cans concerning the invasion ofChina, the more are the Japanesemilitarists aided and encouraged intheir atrocities.Every instance of aid, moral ormaterial, to Japan or her agents, in¬creases our own guilt.

DECEMBER 9. 1938 Page ThreePi LambdaPhi♦ ♦ ♦By JOHN STEVENS“Roses are red, violets are blue,I’m Art Goldberg, Who are you?”That is the way the two transferstudents who are going through HellWeek at the Pi Lam house mustanswer the phone. The wit that en¬abled the Pi Lams to take first placein the Victory Vanities is apparentboth in the way they handle theirneophytes, and in their general con¬versation.In addition, the boys know how tostudy. They have ranked first of allPi Urn chapters for several years.This fact becomes significant when} one learns that nationally Pi LambdaI Phi ranks second of all fraternities.\ Locally they were third, only a frac¬tion of a point out of second place.However, with a sophomore classwith an average of better than Bthey expect to raise their rating to atleast second and possibly first.The house has co-operated in keep¬ing the scholastic standing high. Nonoise is permitted in the house fromtwo ’til five and from 7:30 until 9:30,() so the boys can study with as littleinterference as possible. Facultymembers and outstanding studentslead seminars to tutor brothers whoneed help. Another feature is a fileof old comprehensives.Activity in campus affairs is con¬centrated in Pulse and the Maroon.There are four men, including the ad¬vertising and business managers, onthe former, and six, one of whom isa co-business manager, on the latter.Other activities in which Pi Lams areengaged are the JSF Council, Black-friars, the Reynolds Club Council,Freshman Orientation, Intramurals,and the Junior I-F Committee. Inathletics they are very weak. Onlyfour men in the house have partici¬pated in baseball, fencing and basket¬ball, and none of them have stoodout.There are 24 men in the house,seven seniors, seven juniors, and tensophomores. Ten live at the house andpay $49.00 a month, while the rest ofthe brothers pay $22.00 a month forsix meals a week and dues. Since thepledge period is regarded as a trial |period, pledges pay no dues although jthey must eat five meals a week at Ithe house for fifty cents each. The |initiation fee is $100.00. They do not jmake an attempt to build up a finan-1cial re.serve, but rather keep the |hou.se small in order to increasegroup solidarity.Although the Pi Lams owned ahouse about a half mile from campus, jthey decided to move to a better lo- jcation three years ago. They rented jthe house across from Bartlett Gym jand last summer did quite a bit ofinterior decorating themselves, so thehouse is in good condition.Pi Lambda Phi, the first non-sec¬tarian fraternity in the country, wasfounded in 1895 at Yale. The local ichapter the Omicron, was established,in 1919.

Salvemini Ends Lecture Series,Talks onHumilityand Tolerance Mystery-MaestroPlays at Dance“He who thinks he possesses theinfallible way of making people hap¬py,” declared Gaetano Salvemini,Italian historian, “Is ever ready tokill them.” Speaking on “Humility toTolerance” in Mandel Hall yesterdayafternoon, he found that while demo¬cratic humility about incompleteknowledge of social affairs leads totolerance, dictatorship and dogmatismresult from transfering the attitudeof a scientist dealing with the cer¬tainty of the physical world to hu¬man affairs.In the last of a series of lecturesentitled “History and Social Science—Are. They Sciences?” Salveminicalled these “sciences with a smalls.” As imperfect sciences, since theydeal with unique events which arenot objectively measurable subject tothe test of experiment; since they of¬fer no certain predictions, they arepoor relations, he said.

Thus governmentis, in a way, a gamble; and solutionsto social problems are found throughtrial and error—the English way of“muddling through.”“A democrat is a man who doesn’tbelieve himself the Almighty God,”Salvemini said. Since all men areborn with equal weaknesses they areall liable to blunder, and none are in¬fallible in forecasting futures. Thephilosophy of dictatorship, however,divides humanity into the mass andthe chosen few, he stated. Thoughthe chosen few are credited with in¬fallibility, even experts may makemistakes in planning. “God Himself,”Salvemini declared, “repented oneday of the blunder of having mademan. The flood was the result.”Stressing the point that toleranceof all opinions should be political andnot intellectual, Salvemini insisted onour duty not to accept opinions op¬posing ours unless we are validly con¬vinced they are true. Then, we mustunconditionally abandon our previousmistaken views.

Of the starters, fourJohnny Kundia, Gordy AddingtonGordy Spear, and Paul Maki havebeen regulars since their sophomoredays.

Opponents Start FourVeterans Against Chica¬go,His team, as the Gopher coachsays, “will be a better scoring combination than last year’s, but with¬out Marty Rolek will be weaker ondefense.” Rolek, all-American guardin his junior year, was taken fromcompetition by graduation ater serv¬ing a three year tenure as floor cap¬tain and energy coil.Last year the northerners lost theirfirst two games in a miserable fash¬ion, and then put on a victorysprint that encompassed 10 teams be¬fore they slowed down to a normalpace. Probable reason for the latestart was that forwards Kundia andAddington didn’t jibe as they had theyear previous. But when the twoquickened the pace of their play tomeet the requirements of MacMillan’sshort pass—quick break system, andelongated Spear began to methodical¬ly drop home long shot after longshot, Minnesota gobbled up all com¬petition.If they overcome their defense fail¬ing, develop dependable reservesand out-live their killing schedule,Minnesota will finish either first orsecond in the western conference.Metcalf AnnouncesFencing ScheduleSix Conference meets have beenplanned for the fencing team duringthe Winter Quarter and arrangementsare being made to schedule severalB team matches, it was announcedyesterday by T.

The defeat, however, was byonly one point, and Marquette’smotives against Chicago will includea tinge of revenge.With time-and-a-half scoring in twoovertime periods, Chicago triumphedWednesday night over De Paul’s BlueDemons 61-48 after reserve forwardCarl Stanley kept them in the runningwith a spectacular field goal in theclosing seconds of the regulationgame period.Marquette’s four veterans and onesophomore, who scored 26 points toWisconsin’s 27, will again start in thefirst of a two-game series with theMaroons, the second installment ofwhich will be held on the MidwayDec. 21. Leading ScorerCo-captains Erwin Graf, center, andDave Quabius, guard, will lead theHilltoppers. Graf, a 200-pound sen¬ior, who stands 6’ 214”, and WilliamKomenich, the only sophomore reg¬ular on the Marquette squad, are thetallest men among the Hilltop start¬ers. Both are an inch and a halfshorter than Chicago’s lofty trio ofstarters, Joe Stampf, Richard Louns-bury, and Ralph Richardson.Start Same MenChicago also will utilize the samefive who have successfully defendedthe Fieldhouse court. Lounsbury,who ended tenth in Big Ten individ¬ual scoring last season, leads histeammates so far this season with 20points in the two games.Chicago’s guards, although inex¬perienced, performed well for the sec¬ond time against De Paul. Chet Mur¬phy, who with his twin brother Billholds the Big Ten tennis doubles title,made five field goals and followedLounsbury by only one point in totalscoring.
