Under the pro-po.sed change, however, elections willdetermine the number of memberseach party is to have, rather thanselecting individuals for membershipin the Union. The tasks of choosingmembers, thus, will be left to theparties in caucus.If the new plan is accepted by theUnion, an election will be held inFebruary at which time voters willdesignate simply the political partyto which they belong—Republican,Conservative Democrat, New DealDemocrat,, SocialistWorker’s Party (Trotskyites) or In¬dependent Radical. Membership inthe Union, which has been set at75, will be alloted in proportion tothe number of votes each party pollsin the election. There will be nominimum quota for any of the par¬ties. Conservative opposition to thissection of the plan, which arose fromconservative fear that radicals by ac¬tive campaigning could gain member¬ship out of proportion to their cam¬pus strength, was overcome when theconservatives decided to make .strenu¬ous efforts to obtain club and frater¬nity support.Party QuotasAfter party quotas have been al¬loted, the parties will meet in threecaucuses. Republican, Democratic,and Radical, to choose their membersto the Union. Anyone interested injoining may attend the caucus ofhis pai-ty and put his name up foielection.Officers will hold their positionsfor a year and will be chosen in ageneral election. Party co-chairmenwill be selected in party caucus quar¬terly. No two officers in the Union’sexecutive committee may be membersof the same party. ties seems to be slated for public at¬tention again. There are some 15religious clubs on campus, each in itsown way trying to find the place ofreligion in the life of the Universitystudent.A little over 12 per cent of theUniversity student body is labeled,by its own choice, religiously Jewish.Representing these students are twoclubs essentially different in nature,but working toward the same end;that of helping to adjust them totheir surroundings.The Jewish Student Foundation isa social, religious, and cultural groupwith particular emphasis on the so¬cial. Upon entering the University allJewish students automatically be¬come members.

Greer has resigned to becomevice-president of Kingan and Co., apacking firm in Indianapolis.Greer was formerly professor ofAccounting in the Schoool of Busi¬ness, and was also Director of thedepartment of marketing, the depart¬ment of Packinghouse Organization,and Accounting in the Institute ofAmerican Meat Packers. Lewis hastaken over these duties, too.England Ruled by UneducatedTories Before 1830—Viner“In the fifty years that preceded1830, political power in England wasmonopolized by the aristocracy. Dur¬ing this period the Tories, who forthe most part were wealthy but un¬educated, heW the balance of powerin Parliament.”Discussing the period in Englandduring the Tory dominance, JacobViner, professor of Economics, yes¬terday continued his series of lecturesdealing with the “Political and SocialIdeas of the English Classical Eco¬nomists.” An overflow crowd attend¬ed the second of four lectures w'hichare given on successive Tuesdays inthe Social Science Assembly Room.Whig Party“The Whig party was also gather¬ed from the aristocracy but the mem¬bers were educated,” Viner stated.However, the only means of obtain¬ing their ends was to obtain the bal¬ ance of power which rarely was heldby the labor and middle class inter¬ests or to sway public opinion; butmostly they prayed that the Torieswould stay at home when a measurewas put to a vote in Parliament.”Commenting on the reform groupswho attacked the political situation,Viner listed the Philosophical Radi¬cals, the group led by Jeremy Ben-tham, as one of the most important.The Benthamites led the fight for asecret ballot and for Parliamentryrepresentation according to a vote ofareas equal in population.Although the Benthamites wereable to place several men in Parlia¬ment, they declined as a political 'party after 1836 due to the death ofseveral of their leaders and the re¬tirement from politics of others. Be¬fore its death, however, the partywas able to see the passage of theReform Bill in 1832. Religious, LaborGroups DiscussRelationshipProgram Includes RoundTable Discussions, Talksby Experts.The Religion and Labor Institutewill convene Friday afternoon andevening in Graham Taylor Hall ofthe Chicago Theological Seminary todiscuss the relationships between re¬ligion and labor.

Sociologist, StudentElected to Boss VoteGetters.Louis Wirth, associate professor ofSociology, and Claude Hawley, presi¬dent of the Graduate Political ScienceClub, yesterday were named chair¬men of the faculty and studentgroups which have organized to sup¬port Professor Paul H. Douglas inhis campaign for the aldermanship ofthe fifth ward.The election occurred at a luncheonat International House which was at¬tended by Professors Harold Gosnell,Earl Johnson, Jerome Kerwin, AntonJ. Carlson, Mary Gilson, Wirth, lead¬ers of the graduate clubs and repre¬sentatives from every department ofthe University. At the same time,plans were made for the circulationof petitions (350 signatures areneeded), for canvassing precincts,distributing literature, and for pro¬viding co-operation with the cam¬paign headquarters at 1155 55thstreet.Request Student Workers“We can still use 100 willing stu¬dent workers,” Hawley said yester¬day in calling for additional volun¬teers. “There are hundreds of Doug¬las enthusiasts in the campus com¬munity. But enthusiasm isn’t enough.It is essential that our activities beco-ordinated. Hence all who are will¬ing to spend some time and energyon the campaign are asked to registerwithout delay in SS 415.“We shall not unlikely be facedwith the difficulties that are boundto beset any organization, nearly allof whose w’orkers are contributingtheir services gratis. If Douglas’cam¬paign is a successful one, it will be solargely because his many enthusiasticsupporters have done the work theypromised to do. At the moment weneed more promises and more work,”Hawley concluded.A plan was proposed at the lunch¬eon to hold a mass meeting on cam¬pus in the near future, the speakersto be the candidates in the race foralderman and possibly in the mayor¬alty race. At present, Douglas’ mostformidable opponent is James Cusackwho is being backed by Horace Lind-heimer.Managers of Douglas’ campaignlast night stated that their candidatehad not and would not receive fin¬ancial contributions from any polit¬ical machine. All money used in thecampaign had been collected throughvoluntary contributions.Prom-oters MeetTo InaugurateBig CampaignAll students interested in sellingtickets, or promoting the WashingtonProm in any way, will meet today at3:30 in the Trophy Room of BartlettGym, the Prom Committee announcedyesterday. The meeting will mark thebeginning of an intensive promotion¬al program with which the Commit¬tee hopes to create a succes.sful Prom.The freshman and sophomore work¬ers appointed by the Committee lastquarter will be expected to attend themeeting, but in addition the Commit¬tee welcomes all others interested inthe work.Free BidsAs an incentive to its workers theCommittee will as usual award onefree ticket for every ten sold.The Prom this year will again bein Bartlett gym, which will be decor¬ated in formal black and white ofmodernistic design. Bartlett is roomyenough to accommodate a largecrowd, and its low rental cost per¬mits the low bid price of $3.50 forholders of Social C-Books and $3.75for others.Jimmie Lunceford’s popular bandof Kit Kat Klub fame will be themusical attraction for Prom goers.To give students a chance to hearsome of his music, which is a ryth¬mic, danceable type, the Committeehas placed Lunceford records in mostof the favorite eat and drink spotsaround the campus.Page Two THE DAILY MAROON.

They talkwell and they make a greatshow of working hard, but theend result casts serious doubtson the generally idealistic con¬ception of the student body.John Tunis, in his Ladies’ HomeJournal article last summer,pictured little knots of seriousthinkers debating philosophy indormitory corners, and cryingfor more and more books toread, more and more discussionsto attend. To some of the stu¬dents this does apply. The ma¬jority are still bogged down inthe heritage of ignorance whichsurrounds the American collegesystem. Over large areas of thecampus it is still not good formto study.University students are sup¬erficially bright. They take upphilosophy in a mild way be¬cause it is fashionable; it provesthat they are above those grub¬bing students at other schoolswho have busy work assignedfrom day to day to help themassimilate knowledge. They wor¬ry odd ends of philosophic con¬cepts over Coffee Shop tablesin a genteel way, but only be¬cause they have the idea thatit is expected of them. Theydon’t know what they aretalking about, as examinationsprove. Instructors in the Collegemust still grade examinationswith the soul of generosity. Oth¬erwise far too many studentswould flunk out.What America needs now iscourageous and independentthinking with reasoning abilitybehind it. It apparently is notgoing to get it from the Uni¬versity student body. If theycannot cover a College coursewhich is admittedly much over¬simplified in many departments,without the benefit of facultykindliness, they cannot be ex¬pected to rectify the ills of theworld. For many years theAmerican educational ideal hasprompted a hopeful public tolook to the colleges for leader¬ship. The colleges have so fardisappointed them, and theywill continue to while studentscontinue too lazy to learn thethinking that is done for them.Independent thinking is yet afar-off ideal.The curse of most Americanuniversities is the taking of col¬lege so much for granted thatlearning becomes an unimpor¬tant duty in a pleasant prepara¬tion for the period of earning aliving. It has not escaped ours.There are seven fraternities TravellingBazaarI-F DiaryInter-fraternity is playing cagythis year in divulging the scholasticratings of the frat boys. The Greekshave suddenly become painfully self-conscious about their intellectual pro¬ficiency to the point that they refuseto let the world in on the secret un¬til gently weighted by “activities” and“working” standing.Let it be known on the QT, how'-ever, that the Betas again come outon top of the heap, the most fit ofthe survivors w’ith an almost B aver¬age, followed by Zeta Beta again asper usual. Third place honor goes toPi Lam followed by Phi Delt whichhas zoomed from 12th place last yearto fourth this year, a most healthytendency. Fifth rank goes to the DUcherubs, with Sigma Chi not far be¬hind.Most unhappy is the Alpha Deltkerflop from ninth to absolute bottomin scholarship. Chi Psis are happy be¬cause they’re away up high in secondplace from the dog-house. Phi SigmaDelta and Psi U also ran the Sweetbut Dumb boys close honors for schol¬astic non-entity.More superhuman effort wasevinced by the Dekes crawling man¬fully up from the cellar to ninthplace.It suddenly occurred to us thatthere is no way of checking whoworks how late, where and why andfor what? We personally like thecold, hard, scholastic facts, unham¬pered by the glitter and the glamor ofactivities and noble boys who work.It should be a pretty tough year forfreshmen—to have to choose betweenbrains or beauty.The Power of a Personalityis aptly illustrated by David Grenewho has literally remade the Greekdepartment from a name in the cata¬logue to a flourishing little friendlygroup of about 20 students. David’sfavorite class we suspect is his classof two, which includes from left toright—Willie Kent, a model pupil whohas learned to read the Odyssey in12 short months, and David’s newwife, the former Marjorie Glicksman.Willie doesn’t feel a bit in the way.He says they treat him just like an¬other member of the family.Other remarkable classes boastsuch specie of people as Ruth Brody,Christine Palmer, Bill McNeill, Mar¬jorie Graham and David Sachs, 16-year old boy wonder who is a mostprecocious Greek student. Davis is anunusual case study since he persistsin hero worshipping McNeill insteadof Grene as Greek pupils should.Most unnerved by the Rennaisanceare the Classic librarians who get alldusty from digging up moldy Greektexts from the stacks.Today on theQuadranglesSpanish and German tables at 7 inthe main dining room at Internation¬al House.Choral Club at 7.

Refute Belief That Orthogenic Present GreekSchool Children Are Snb-Normal Beauties to“The children in our school are notsub-normal,” stated Mrs. Helen M.Robinson, psychologist and teacherat the Orthogenic School of the Uni¬versity of Chicago. “Contrary to thepopular misconception these childrenhave normal I Q’s, and in many in¬stances their intelligence quotienthas been above average.The problem with which we deal ismaladjustment such as wrong habitformation, and emotional and per¬sonality problems which cause thepupil to become retarded in school,and which keep him from occupyinghis normal place in society. We donot accept children whose mental re¬tardation is so serious that the caseis not remedial. There are institu¬tions 'for those children. Only thosewho may be readjusted are enrolled.”The Orthogenic School is one ofthe most unusual of the new types ofeducation developed in recent years.In choosing as its field the develop¬ment and reorientation of maladjust¬ed children it is the answer to one ofthe greatest needs of education, andof society as a whole. The recordsshow that although more than fiftyper cent of the children in the UnitedStates suffer some emotional, behav¬ior, or educational problem, there areonly three schools of this type in thecountry. As it is a part of the Uni¬versity, all University facilities maybe utilized, a factor which makes itthe best equipped of the three.Famed PsychiatristDr. Mandel Sherman, psychiatristrecently featured in The March ofTime, conducts research in connec¬tion with the school.

We further believe |that if the administration were “pro- jmoting an effort to avoid personal;contact with its students,” it wouldnot directly be the fault of Mr.Hutchins.One of the more glaring ambigui¬ties which appear on the face of his iarticle arises when Mr. Goldsmith 1says “Mr. Hutchins is a great man” jand that “his educational theories are ,great.” He goes on to prophesy that:this “great man” will always be a j“dismal failure” unless he changes jhis methods of doing things, al-1though some day he may hold acoveted cabinet post.” IncidentallyMr. Hutchins has used the samemethods for the past four decades.We do not believe the administra¬tion of the University “promotes aneffort to avoid personal contact withits student.” On the contrary, we be¬lieve the administration gives everyopportunity to the students to conferpersonally with his Dean on anyproblem with which he is confrontedduring his academic career. The sameholds true with the instructors of ev¬ery course given on campus. We ad¬mit that Mr. Hutchins does not havepersonal contact with each of 6000students. Yet Mr. Hutchins is justi¬fied to the extent that his duties asPresident prevent him from minglingfreely and constantly with the stu¬dents. If, however, any student hasa good reason for seeing Mr. Hutch¬ins, he is seldom denied this right.Because Mr. Smith, by nature, isparticularly fitted for his position a.8Dean of Students, this fact does notsubstantiate the conclusion that Mr.Hutchins is an impersonal mechanism.On the contrary, in his classes, Mr.Hutchins evinces a sincere personalinterest in each of his students.Mr. Goldsmith admits his “adviceis perhaps unsound,” and is “just asdumb as any undergraduate,” and isin no unique position to criticize.How can we disagree with him?John JeffersonRobert FosterDick EvansWilbur Jerger. where the patient will have to be in¬stitutionalized.The success of this school is illus¬trated by the fact that ninety percent of the pupils have been .success¬fully treated and have resumed theirnormal place in society.Calvert ClubDiscusses ChristianMarriage TomorrowAnyone interested in the subjectof marriage, is invited by the CalvertClub to attend and participate in adiscussion based on the Papal En¬cyclical on Christian Marriage, at4:30 tomorrow in the YWCA roomat Ida Noyes Hall.

When it hasbeen completed a discussion of theencyclicals on labor and social jus¬tice will be considered.The social significance of the en¬cyclicals as a whole have alreadybeen discussed by the Calvert club atthe last meeting, but this quarterthey intend to discuss those on mar¬riage, labor and social justice eachthoroughly.Greeks Wind UpRushing in Dorms Campus FridayWith scenes all shot and ready forthe cutting room, the Univer.sityNewsreel, heir apparent to the dp.funct Campus Newsreel, will offer itsfirst screen review of the season’s ac¬tivities to the Quadrangles Friday.'Although the primary intent of thefilm will be to show the position offraternities on campus, one-third ofthe picture will consist of “shortshots” of events of the past and thebeginning of this quarter, and viewsof libraries, lounges, and local fooddispensaries of the University.

WEDNESDAX, JANUARY 18, 1939 Page ThreeAlpha DeltaPhiBy JOHN STEVENSIn 1832 Alpha Delta Phi wasfounded at Hamilton College. The or-jranization prospered until the CivilWar when two chapters were lost.The brothers from Alabama were soincensed with hatred for the “damnYankees", even though they were fra¬ternity brothers, that they gave backtheir charter. The Cumberland chap¬ter was loyal to the “Crescent and theStar”, and kept their charter. Never¬theless. Cumberland can hardly belisted on the active chapter role, be¬cause everyone of the brothers en¬listed and never came back. As a re¬sult of these unfortunate incidentsthere are now only 26 Alpha Deltchapters.* * *The local chapter, which wasfounded in 1896, is the largest at(’hicago. Seventeen seniors, 15 jun¬iors, and 14 sophomores add up to 46Alpha Delts, one of whom is still apledge. Twenty-six men, an excep¬tionally large number, live in thehouse. This house was specificallybuilt as a fraternity house in 1929and is consequently one of the threebest. It is kept in excellent conditionby the cooperation of the actives, theaiumni. and the mothers’ club. Thisfall $1250 was spent on improve¬ments, and a short time ago themothers’ club, which meets everymonth, donated an overstuflfed leath¬er chair. Special features of the houseare a well-equipped game room anda handsome library.The actives living in the house pay!i;iS0 per quarter for room, board,social dues, national fee, and extras,whatever they are. Actives not livingin the house pay $25 for the various(lues, lunches, and one dinner a week.Pledges pay seven dollars less forabout the same things. The initiationfee i.s $60.* « *If Alpha Delt’t the most ath¬letic fraternity, it is very close to it.The captain of the basketball team,one co-captain of the baseball team,and the track captain are all brothers.Ten football men, seven of whomwon C jackets, and two of whom havebeen elected co-captains of nextyear’s eleven could almost form anice intramural grid team. In addi¬tion six basketball men, six swim¬mers, nine track men, two ba.seball-ers, two w’restlers, one gymnast, twovarsity tennis players, tw'o golfers,and four out for ice-hockey are AlphaDelts. Altogether there are 17 jacketsin the house. Anyone who doesn’tthink this is very many should knowthat last year the house with themost had only 14, and this was count¬ing Old English Letters as halves.Not only do the brothers stand atthe top in varsity athletics, but theyare also leading in the race for theintramural championship. They haveconsistently placed near the top intotal points, having tied for first lastyear. They usually do well in mostsports, and so far this year they haveplaced second in touchball and wonthe ping-pong tournament.* « «In scholarship the house rankedninth last year with a little betterthan a C average. However this yearrumors have it that they will be near¬er the bottom. To encourage study¬ing, a scholarship has been organ¬ized which will divide about $200among five deserving brothers.

Here lies the great¬est difference between the twogroups. Most of the members of JSFare girls looking for a good time,while members of Avukah are earn¬est in their desire to understand theJew and his problems. They considerAvukah something more than aglorified date bureau.Community Supports JSFThe Chicago Jewish communitystrongly supports JSF in anythingthey do. Dr. G. George Pox of SouthShore Temple is its director, andmembers of various temple sister¬hoods act as hostesses for socialfunctions. Other than national direc¬tors, Avukah has no such assistance^r guidance. It is run entirely for thestudents by the students.The restraining hand of Rabbi Foxcan be seen all to plainly in the run¬ning of JSF, and the extent of his in¬fluence is currently causing an inter¬nal tremor in the organization. OtherJSF personnel include Gil Rothstein,president; Frances Brown, secretary,who does most of the work, and Saad-yah Maximon, assistant director, whodoes most of the talking. Shrewd andsincere Joe Epstein runs Avukahquietly with enthusiasm and vigor.The organisation is free from the pet¬ty bids for power which are compli¬cating JSF.Each group has its individual mer¬its, and what one lacks, the other.seems to have. Realizing this, Avukahand JSF are holding hands at thispoint, and working together. There isno telling what will happen when andif they let go of each other. Togetheraffairs.

Emily Post or No, - GlassBlowers Put Elbows on Table“Elbows have no place on the ta¬ble,” says Emily Post, but contraryto the etiquette known to most lay¬men, that practiced in C. C. Van Hes-pen’s glass blowing course demandsthat good glass blowers have theirelbows on the table in order thatthey might manipulate the burnersand handle the glass tubing properly.A necessary and valuable pre-req¬uisite for some classes in chemistryand physics, the glass blowing courseis non-credit.Beginners start their course bylearning the essentials of glass blow¬ing, and finally, their fingers slight¬ly scorched by the oxygen burnersand their hands nicked by pieces ofglass, reach the stage where they areable to make simple repairs, and con¬densers. The more advanced class,however, now able to take care oftheir hands and to prevent most breakage, work up to the point wherethey can do intricate work, althoughthey are not as adept as their instruc¬tor, C. C. Van Hespen.Any intricate or unusual workneeded by either of these depart¬ments is made by Van Hespen, whoalso blows the more usual and lesscomplex glassware used by the chem¬ists and physicists. With the aid ofa little machine which resembles aconcrete mixer in miniature andsounds like a dentist’s drill in action,Van Hespen completes the flasks andtubes used in experiments.Short and blond. Van Hespen wasborn in Holland and studied glassblowing at the University of Leyden.After working five years at OxfordUniversity, he came to Chicago eightyears ago and has been at the Uni¬versity ever since.Cap and Gown GivesRecord Prize TodayToday at 4 the fraternity leadingthe Cap and Gown Subscription Con¬test will win nine dollars worth ofVictor records.

From then on, Ed Faherty,the Round Boy, took the worst drub¬bing.Phi Psi’s Battle Phi Sig’sBut the Psi U’s were not the onlyfraternity which was in on the snow¬ball fighting; after a perfectly peace¬ful lunch with the Phi Psi’s, the PhiSigs were ushered out of their hosts’house with a determined bombard¬ment. They stood their ground man¬fully, however, and managed to ac¬quit themselves honorably on thefield of battle.Another scrap was recorded at thesame time down the street a littleway, when the Dekes and the D. U’shad it out. Both sides claim the vic¬tor’s wreath, but bystanders ratedthe battle a draw. So fierce was thefighting that one of the boys wasout in the street clad in nothing buthis underwear.In connection with this popularpastime of snowballing, there is a re¬port from Champaign that the fight¬ing mini lived up to their name a lit¬tle too well, and 14 of them wereclapped in jail because of a raid onthe police headquarters. The policepatrol cars were out in full forcelooking for students who were on therampage.While the Psi U’s were busy try¬ing to handle the freshmen, the PiLams, who live next door, saw theirchance to make a flank attack, thuscatching the Psi U’s between twofires. They were finally repulsed,however, by an inspired attack of in¬spired Psi U’s, who thought the raidin poor taste and cowardly.t Frosh Shower Psi U’sThe Psi U’s figured in anotherscrap Monday night, when they took 1a lacing at the hands of the men’sdormitory inhabitants, who trappedthem in Burton court and showeredthe fraternity boys with everythingfrom hot water to waste baskets fullof snow.
