A graduate student a theUniversity under Professor Edga. J.Goodspeed, now emeritus, he contin¬ues the Goodspeed tradition in thedepartment.Dr. Gilkey’s appointment reflectsthe dual interests of the DivinitySchool as a scholarly and researchdivision of the University and as aninstitution serving the needs of or¬ganized religion. These interests ofthe School have been recognized andsupported in the appointments of Dr.Colwell and Dr. Gilkey, both by thetrustees of the Baptist TheologicalUnion and of the University.In the contacts of the DivinitySchool with the religious leadershipof the countrj’, Dr. Gilkey as asso¬ciate dean will represent the interestof the School in the training of min¬isters to serve the churches. A widelyknown preacher and authority on re¬ligious problems of students, Dr. Gil¬key has b<>en actively associated for25 years with progressive develop¬ments in Baptist and inter-denomi¬national organizations.Father A MinisterProfessor Colwell was born inM a 11 8 t e a d, Susquehanna County,Pennsylvania, in 1901. His fatherErnest Colwell, a retired Methodistminister, still serves as a supply inthe Wyoming Conference of NewYork. The new dean of the DivinitySchool graduated from Emory Uni¬versity in 1923; received the B. 1).degree from Candler School of The-1ology of Emory University, in 1927, |and the Ph. D. in New Testament'from the University in 1930. In addition to its high academicrating, the University now finds newdistinction in its unusually high per¬centage of married students, it wasfound by the Daily Maroon in the Ifirst marriage survey to be made ofthis campus.The high proportion of graduatestudents attending the University ex¬plains this high percentage. There;were 2,848 graduate students and 3,- j364 undergi'aduates registered last!quarter. According to the registration icards which have no check upon men !in the college or students who leave ithe marriage question blank, therewere 822 married students attending'school fall quarter. Of these only 82 iwere undergraduates, leaving 740married graduate students. There areundoubtedly many married studentsFreshmen AskProfessor Scott forHumanities 11 CourseBefore a special investigating com¬mittee appointed by the FreshmanCouncil, Professor Arthur Scott yes¬terday termed the possibility of in¬cluding a supplementary HumanitiesII course in the curriculum, “highlyadviseable and desirable” providingcertain obstacles can be successfullymet. The chief barrier at presentseems to concern it.self with the prob¬lem of obtaining a suitable staff ofinstruction in eight of the lim¬ited University budget for com¬ing year. .The proposed course, as discu.ssedby the group under Chairman JimDegan, would include studies in thefield of contemporary music, litera¬ture and fine arts with an eye to de¬veloping a “more intelligent generalappreciation.” A plan was also recom¬mended whereby through the mediumof laboratory periods, stimulatingcreative effort in this field, the stu¬dent might gain a fuller appreciationof the skilled labor, and natural in¬sight neces.sary for the fashioning ofa work of art.Within a week the committee will isubmit a poll to the students to de¬termine its reaction to the proposal. IDouglas Aniioiiiices Platformill Contest for AldermanPromising to remain a “politicalindependent” if elected. ProfessorPaul H. Douglas last night madeknown the platform he will supportas candidate for alderman of thefifth ward. He spoke before 150 inde¬pendent voters who had gathei’ed inShotwell Hall to organize the cam¬paign.At the same time announcementwas made of the opening of campusheadquarters today in Social Science412 with Claude Hawley and Mrs.Fllizabeth Slotkin present to registerstudents for campaign work. Callingfor “shock troops” Douglas asked forUniversity volunteers to circulatepetitions, mimeograph printed mat¬ter, address letters, circulate hand¬bills ancf watch the polls on electionday.Stating that he hoped to make thefifth ward a better place in which tolive. Professor Douglas announcedthat, if elected, he would establishoffices in two districts of the ward,appoint an advisory committee tomake suggestions for the bettermentof the ward, attempt to establishmore recreational facilities, and trj'to reduce the amount of smoke byelectrifying all Illinois Central trains.In addition he promised to seekmore efficient cleaning of the streets,to establish a civic center in everyward so that civic business could betransmitted nearer home, and to de¬centralize the city government asmuch as possible. 1Turning to issues affecting the en¬tire city, the University nmfessorstated an eight-point plan towardsbetter city government. The platformincluded awA' ding city lobs on thebasis of ryjj t, reducing the cost of(Continijed on page 3) .school maintenance and the size ofthe classes, promoting city support inmodern housing projects, and provid¬ing additional hospital space, espec¬ially for the Negroes and low incomegroup.Douglas also pledged his supporttowards more efficient administrationto relief, improvement of the trans¬portation .system, and abolition ofrackets of all kinds. Striking at the“official lawlessness” in Chicago heproposed abolition of the third de¬gree, and improvement of the votingsystem.Douglas further proposed the ap¬pointment of a Board of Mediationand Arbitration for the purpose ofreducing strikes in the Chicago re¬gion. Concluding he promised “tohave his income audited annually, butnot in the McKesson-Robbins style,and a publication of it in every com¬munity newspaper.”Chuck Mowery PlaysAt JSF Pep DanceChuck Mowery’s orche.stra illfurnish the pep for the Jewish Stu¬dent Foundation Pep dance to be heldWednesdav at 3:30 in Ida NoyesTheatre.

Charge Admission forAnnual Winter Con¬cert.Stirring martial music, with may¬be a little swing thrown in, will blareout from the corridors of MandelHall, Sunday afternoon, February 19.The source of the stentorian strainswill be the University of ChicagoBand, playing with fervor and finesseto aid German student refugees andvictims of the wars in Spain andChina.Director Harold Bachman, speak¬ing through AI de Grazia, band man¬ager, yesterday proffered the Ref¬ugee Aid and War Relief Committeethe services of the Band for the dayas a part of the Committee’s $10,-000 drive to secure room and boardfor ten students from Germany, andto help students in strife-torn Chinaand Spain.Charge AdmissionsThe band always presents winterconcerts to packed houses in Mandel,but this year, for the first time, ischarging music lovers admission inthe name of the Drive for the after¬noon’s entertainment.Meanwhile the Refugee Aid Com¬mittee continued work on the drive,which was initiated Thursday whenthe Social Service AdministrationClub voted a quota of $500 to give themovement a running strart. BudJames, ex-Pulse staffer. Alpha Delt,and dabbler in campus politics, wasselected as publicity director for thecampaign, and Kay Stevenson volun¬teered to take on the duties of sec¬retary, The Committee also issued acall for an “expert accountant witha sympathetic nature” to act astreasurer for the drive.The Refugee Aiders decided toraise funds for expenses of the driveamong themselves, their relatives,and a few alumni, in order that allof the funds raised on the $10,000quota might be given directly to theservice organizations which they se¬lected for administration of the fund.The organizations which the driveselected and which Dean Gilkey ap¬proved for handling the funds forSpain and China are the Far EasternStudent Service Fund Committee, theAmerican Red Cross and AmericanFriends which will help both partiesin Spain, and the Loyalist MedicalBureau of the North American Com¬mittee to aid Spanish Democracy.Unless donors specify which of thetwo Spanish organizations they wantto aid, the funds allotted to Spainwill be apportioned on a 50-50 basis.Hitler GetsNo RoyaltiesBookstore Says “MeinKampf” Is Not LegallyCopyrighted.Adolf Hitler will not receive a centof royalty from the forth-comingAmerican translation of “M e i nKampf.” The book, which will be onsale at the University Bookstore latethis month, has attracted much at¬tention, especially among publishers.International copyright technicali¬ties have made the publication pos¬sible by any concern, as Hitler wasa “man without a country” at thetime of obtaining copyright.However, two editions are appear™ing at the same time in this country^One, by Reynal and Hitchcock, is ap¬proved by the holders of Hitler’sAmerican copyright and has beenedited by a group in charge of Dr.Alvin Johnson of the New School forSocial Research. The other, by Stack-pole Sons, is taking advantage of thefact that legal experts claim the bookto be in the “public domain.” ^Many people on the campus havealready signed for the first editionof the Reynal and Hitchcock book, afull translation of over 800 pages.Page Two THE DAILY MAROON, TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1939^atlg^aroonFOUNDED IN 1901MEMBER ASSOCIATED COLLEGIATEPRESSThe Daily Maroon is the ofBcial studentncwapaper of the University of Chicego,published mornings except Saturday.

That was beforehe found out that there was amen’s housing cooperative beingorganized in a building at thecorner of 56th and Ellis. Nowhe, with twenty-six other stu¬dents, lives upstairs of theflourishing eating cooperative,the Ellis Student Club, and getsgood room and board for anaverage of $250 for three quar¬ters. The housing cooperativeidea has proved itself a success.When the campaign to set upthe first men’s housing cooper¬ative began, we pointed out thethree principal benefits derivedfrom the plan. Cooperatives areinexpensive, they provide fortheir low price far better roomand board than could be foundelsewhere, and they constitute acompact and friendly socialgroup. These are all proved bythe success of the house. Therooms which hold the cooper¬ative’s double decker beds aresmaller than the grey stonechambers at Burton and Judson,but they are well furnished andcomfortable. And the studentswho live in them enjoy livingthere.A conservative estimateplaces the number of addition¬al cooperative houses which theUniversity could use at two,—another men’s house and a newwomen’s house, to supplementthe inadequate facilities ofDrexel House. The difficulties ofsetting up the Ellis Cooperative,however, are insignificant whenthey are compared with theproblem of organizing a newone. The building used had beena rooming house; therefore, therooms and facilities werereadily adaptable to use.Unless a fraternity oblig¬ingly goes bankrupt andturns over its house to a cooper¬ative group, houses that can beused without heavy initial ex¬penses are almost impossible tofind. It other cooperatives are or¬ganized, members of the Ellisgroup have plans for a centralkitchen which would result inII :en greater savings. The prob-Jiem lies in the setting up.There are two ways to assistin setting up new houses. Alum¬ni may take a personal andprivate interest, or the Univer¬sity can take a direct and of¬ficial interest, seeing coopera¬tives as a necessary supplementt o dormitories. Cooperativesw^ould remain self supporting,and self governing but theywould benefit by Univ^ersity backing. University publicity,and University loans in gettingstarted.The members of the Ellis Co¬operative report Harold Swift,president of the Board of Trus¬tees, as an interested visitor lastweek.

BullSession* ♦ ♦There is a vast comfort in havinginnumerable friends, especially whenmany of them are good friends andtrue. In that respect I and many oth¬ers here are very fortunate people.To keep us busy we have studies,domestic duties, extra-curricular ac¬tivities, and, when bored, unhappy ordiscouraged we have recourse tofriendship, the gi-eatest energizer andhealer of all.No matter which of the aforemen¬tioned diversions one desires, thisUniversity offers greater acquisition-al opportunities than any coeduca¬tional institution in the country. Ad¬ministrations past and present havebuilt up the school from an educa¬tional standpoint; they have toleratedfraternities, clubs, political and socialorganizations, and have grudginglyguided the many extra-curicular ac¬tivities, Unfortunately, this is not al¬ways enough. There are very few stu¬dents here who, having given thematter some thought, do not feel thatsomething is lacking.It is my opinion that that which islacking, the void in our campus life,is the direct fault of President Hutch¬ins. The element lacking here is pre¬cisely this. Unlike other schools, theadministration of the University ofChicago promotes an effort to avoidpersonal contact with its students, —personal contact in the sense that on¬ly those of us who are fortunateenough to boast of friends on the fac¬ulty are ever made to feel that wehave any right to know anythingabout the University. For the mostpart the average student, in his at¬tempts to feel that he is a vital cogin this University, is about as suc-ces.sful as he would be in butting hishead against a stone wall in an at¬tempt to break through. This situa¬tion is not dissimilar to that whichexisted in industry before 1900, wherethe worker did as told or got fired—no questions asked,Mr. Hutchins is a great man. Hiseducational theories are great. Someday he may even have a new cabinetpost. But he will always be a dismalfailure unless he changes his methodsof doing things. To you, Mr. Hutch¬ins, I say, “Come out, come out—wherever you are.” Many of us willcarry away a lasting impression ofyou acquired this year at the Armis¬tice Day services, and a sour impres¬sion it is!There, deigning to use a micro¬phone, you stood, and in a low voice,throbbing with ennui and inaudible to35 per cent of the Chapel, you stifflyand condescendingly accepted a giftmeant as a genuine tribute to themen of your University.This attitude, beginning with you,appears in descending order through¬out the University, department bydepartment. Every student with aquestion in his mind or a request tomake is left with a feeling of hope¬less frustration, as his queries aremet with inflexible rulebooks an-1-F CommitteePostpones RatingOf FraternitiesPublication of the scholarship rat¬ing of fraternities is being withheldby the I-F Committee until Secre¬tary Roger Neilson has time to com¬plete a work hours survey. Neilsonexpects to complete this by Thurs¬day so that the two ratings, both withand without the work hours consid¬ered, can be published simultaneous¬ly on Friday before intensive RushWeek, which begins Sunday night.The uncompleted study is a conces¬sion to the low ranking scholarshiphouses, who'claim that their mem¬bers’ activities and jobs should beaccounted for along with a scholar¬ship rating.Last week the I-F Council issuedsome additional rules concerning fra¬ternity conduct during the week.

That’swhy I’ve written this way.

The Travelling BazaarBy VIRGINIA BROWN“The people in Mexico go aroundthe streets in the evening and sing,just for the hell of it” Gregory Bardspeaking, anent his holiday trip toMexico.Christmas Eve, 1938, found JeanRitchie, Britisher; Loretta Van Rie,American; Ariz Yener, Turk andGregory Bard, Russian; stuck in aditch between Zapata and the MexicoCity highway just below the border.The rain rained, the wind howled,wolves roamed uncomfortably nearthe car, and several natives who boreuncomfortable resemblances to cin¬ema bandits approached the car. Col¬lectively the quartet of Internationalswished, in their various tongues, thatthey were safe at home.After the car broke down fourtimes, and it was discovered at theborder that Yener didn’t have hisvisa, most people would have calledit a day, but not these four. Insteadthey drove to Zapata where theycould cross into Mexico without show¬ing their papers. It was on the wayfrom Zapata to the highway that theygot stuck. Mournfully Bard assertedthat it took them 36 hours to go 38miles, “without food or water,” headded as if the situation to that pointhad not been bad enough.* * *The rest of the trip to Mexico Citywas uneventful, in compari.son. Bardbeams when he tells of getting chick¬en dinners for ten cents, and a roomwith a shower for only 25 cents.Night life was rather nice, very con¬tinental, and of course it didn’t equalanything we have in the States.Saltillo, because it is off the beatenpath is more representative of Mex¬ican life. It was there that the groupgot into a gambling game and nearlylost the 20 dollars which they had be¬tween them. Bard, his heart in hismouth for fear that the natives wouldnotice what he was doing came to therescue with a few card tricks whichhe had learned when he lived in Con¬stantinople. In this way he managedto salvage most of the 20 dollars.On New Year’s Eve they were backat the border. Yener had been givenstrict instructions to walk across thebridge and join them on the Americanside, since the customs’ officials sel¬dom asked pedestrians to show anypapers. Yener got past the Mexicanofficials, but stopped in the middle ofthe bridge to wait for the car. Butit was the American customs whichproved his Waterloo. They asked himhis name, and for some unaccountablereason he said, “Bill O’Donnell.” NowYener might have given any name ex¬cept an Irish or Scandinavian andprobably gotten away with it. Thiswas too much. The other occupants Iwho knew Bill O’Donnell, former Ma- jroon man and Phi Psi, went off into ! shrieks of mirth.* * *The customs’ men questioned him,and Yener stoutly maintained thathis parents were born in Ireland, Theyasked for his papers; he had none.Finally they gave him an oral thirddegree and he broke down. Yes, hi.sparents were born in Constantinople.By this time the officials were so sus¬picious that they wouldn’t let himcome back into the States. He wassent back to Mexico while the rest ofthe Party, in spite of his protests,proceeded to New Orleans.Back in Mexico, Yener went to ahotel only to be aroused two hourslater and taken to jail because he hadentered the country illegally. Thenext two days he spent pacing baekand forth on the bridge between tlu«United States and Mexico; he was nutallowed to enter either country. I’lioholidays had made it impossible toget in touch with the Embassy inWashington. It was January 2 be¬fore he re-entered the United States,a chastened soul, .sans jacket andboots which had been pawned to buyfood.They are all back now at Interna¬tional House. Yener is philosophizingabout the worth of friends.

In fact itis so different, that a large numberof more typed fraternity men con¬sider the Betas as a bunch of fanatics,a fanatic being a person who, havinglost sight of his objectives, redoubleshis efforts.Actually this statement is about asfar from the truth as is possible.Any fraternity exists because themembers of it believe that, as indi¬viduals, they benefit from associationwith a group of persons with similarinterests. In most fraternities thebenefits are mainly social, where¬as the Betas emphasize the intellec¬tual advantages of belonging to agroup. They have been eminentlysuccessful, since this new idea wasadopted in 1935, in pledging men whoare intellectually curious, and havesomething to contribute to the group.* • •The emphasis on intellectual ism isvery evident in the Beta scholarshiprecord of the last few years. Lastyear the house ranked first of all fra¬ternities with a B minus average, andof 11 graduates, seven made Phi BetaKappa, The other four probably con¬stitute the Beta “cellar gang.”This excellent scholarship record isnot the result of study rules. Thehouse just has a number of good stu¬dents who have made good marks asa result of individual effort, though acouple of years ago 11 of the boyscrammed for the Bi Sci comp togeth¬er. The results were almost satisfac¬tory as ten earned A’s and only onewas shamed with a B.The Beta intellectual curiosity hasbeen used to make the regular Mon¬day night chapter meetings a pleas-sure instead of a duty. These meet¬ings usually take the form of shorttalks by faculty members or otherguests, followed by discussions. Onoccasion, the boys have been luckyenough to get big names like Presi¬dent Hutchins and Bertrand Russellfor their programs. Only about athird of the meetings are devoted tochapter business, and even for theseattendance is not compulsory.* * *An annual party, held the openingnight of Mirror, is usually the biggestaffair of the year. Another traditionalsocial event is a beer bust beforeRlackfriars. Other social events, allof which are open, are often of anunorthodox nature, such as a chal¬lenge meet with the Daily Maroonfor the jacks championship of theUniversity.Participation in intramurals is lim¬ited to sports in which brothers areinterested. There is no effort to turnout for minor sports for the sole pur¬pose of bettering the house standing.Their most successful I-M entry sofar this year, was the touchball team,which reached the playoffs afterdropping only 12 points in 4 games.At the end of the fall quarter Betawas tied for ninth in total participa¬tion points. The main varsity athletic interestin the house is track. Five men areon this team, two are on the fencingsquad, and one is out for basketball.In activities the brothers work on theChapel Board, Blackfriars, DA, De¬bate Union, the Political Union, theMaroon Literary Supplement, theCamera Club, the orchestra, and thechoir. The president of the Inter-Church Council and two members ofthe Board of Control of Pulse are al¬so Betas.* * *Beta Theta Pi was founded at Mi¬ami University in 1839 and now in¬cludes 89 chapters. The local chap¬ter was founded in 1894. This chap¬ter, although it was on probation bythe national organization for eightyears, is now a chapter in goodstanding. In order to become a Betaone must pay an initiation fee of $50and yearly national dues of $7. Ac¬tives living in the house pay about$45 a month, and actives not living inthe house pay $13 a month for duesand three lunches and a dinner everyweek. Pledges pay $3 less.Although the emphasis in the Betahouse has been for years, and still ison intellectualism, there are manymen in the house who maintain thatthere is a very strong trend towardsa greater emphasis on the social ad¬vantages of a fraternity.Use LimericksFor InitiationOf DA MembersAmid limerick, recreations, tea,cookies, and a play, about 20 personswere initiated into the Drama Asso¬ciation Friday afternoon. In order tobe initated each one had to deliveran original five-line limerick intro¬ducing him.self to the rest of thegroup.First prize in the limerick contestwent to Tom White, late of the “But¬ter and Egg Man.” He received acopy of Noel Coward's “Tonight at8:30” in reward for his limerick inmutilated iambic pentameter.Others coming through with toplittle ditties were Ruth Wehlan, whofor the sake of poesy changed hername to Rosey, and Bob Stuhr, whorelated how he had fallen into asewer.ASU Theatre GroupStarts Casting PlavCasting of Archibald MacLeish’s“The Fall of the City” begins tomor¬row in the Ida Noyes Theatre at 7.It will be the Winter quarter playof the ASU New Theatre Group.Lewis I^ieverett, charter member ofthe New York Group Theatre, willdirect the cast of 30.This unusual play was attemptedlast quarter, but due to unfore.seendifficulties was dropped after severalweeks of rehear.sal.

These boys led thescoring with nine points apiece. BillMurphy led the Chicago scorers withfour field goals and a free throw fora total of nine markers also.Both teams were accurate at thefree throw line, Iowa cashing elevenout of thirteen attempts, and Chicagomaking five out of nine charity tries.A fact for the record book is that,so far in all conference games, winor lose, exactly ten points have sep¬arated the Maroons from their op-j ponents.Defer SeatingArrangement PollThe Daily Maroon poll intendedto determine student opinion onthe Athletic Department’s revisedseating arrangements at Basket¬ball games has been deferred to alater date.Three possible alternativesnhich was to save the entire eastsection of the stands for C-bookholders with no re.servations; (2)the assignment of the same seat tothe same person for the durationof the season, which is the presentplan; or (3) the assignment of asingle reserved seat at the gate foreach individual game, not neces¬sarily the same seat each game.Complaints and suggestions willbe received at the Maroon office.
