After a quarter of inde¬cision, the Campus Peace Council,■spurred on to action by the ap¬proaching date of the nation-widepeace strike, which is traditionallyheld on April 20, decided to hold aconference at some time during thefirst three weeks of the Spring quar¬ter.In the past few years, the confer¬ence has been held at the close ofWinter quarter. The primary reasonfor this year’s delay was what Peace(’ouncil head Joe Rosenstein calls th'-“dearth of willing leadership.” Hestill fears that it will be difficult toget enough people working hardenough to put on an intelligent con¬ference so soon, but assurances of ef¬fective support from Hazel Whitmanof the Fellowship of Reconciliationand Alec Morin of the ASU convincedthe group that the conference couldbe held soon.May Not Endorse StrikeExpression of opinion at the meet¬ing brought out a doubt that the con¬ference would endorse and activelyback the peace strike, as it has donein the past. In %pite oif this fact, how¬ever, it was agreed that the confer¬ence should take place in advance ofthe strike, to allow opportunity forendorsement if the conference groupso desired.The militant absolute pacifistgroups will in all probability sponsora strike of their own this year, sinceit was their group, advocate of theOxford Oath, which was most activein the instigation of the studentstrikes several years ago. If a strikebased on this isolationist program isheld, there is a possibility that advo¬cates of a collective approach to worldpeace, typified by the ASU platform,wil hold a strike on the same day,with an anti-fascist, pro-progressiveaction orientation. In this case thepeace conference will have anotherfunction: the clarification of issues inthe problems of world peace so thatstudents may decide which generalprogram they favor.Opposition to StrikeThere were two reasons advancedby those in opposition to holding apeace strike this year. One was that(Continued j on page 3) Charles CraneElected Head ojPolitical UnionName Platt Vice-Presi¬dent, Pfeiffer Secretary-Treasurer,Charles Crane, who headed the Po¬litical Union’s election committeeand aided materially in its recent re¬organization, was named president ofthe Union for the year ending nextFebruary in yesterday’s election ofUnion officials. He was selected bya clear majority over the other nomi¬nees, Robert Kronemyer and HenryLuccock.Evelyn Platt, Communist, andCharles Pfeiffer, Conservative, werechosen vice-president and secretary-treasurer respectively, by acclama¬tion.Main speaker for the meeting wasMaynard Kreuger, assistant professorof Economics, who opposed the mo¬tion, Resolved: That this Union fa¬vors the Roosevelt rearmament pro¬gram.“From any standpoint but that ofthe 100 per cent honest Americanimperialist,” Krueger stated, “the ar¬gument in favor of rearmament fallsflat. If you can convince the greatmass of the American people that itis to their interest to promote Ameri¬can imperialism, you have the bestpossible defense of the armamentprogram.”If the unemployment problem isnot solved, Krueger said, there willbe a powerful Fascist movement inthe United States. Basically, the re¬armament program is a move to dis¬tract attention from the problem ofunemployment.“Judging from the record, there isno reason to expect that UnitedStates armed power will be used forjustice, humanity, and civilization,”Kreuger continued. “Additional pow¬er will only be used to defend Ameri¬can imperialism. It will not defeatFascism in any part of the world.”Jaeger LeavesUniversityFor HarvardTo take a so-called “Universityprofessorship” at Harvard next fall,Werner Jaeger, Edward Olson Pro¬fessor of Greek, leaves the Univer¬sity faculty, which he joined threeyears ago. An internationally fa¬mous Greek scholar, Jaeger formerlytaught at the University of Berlinand the Institute for Classical Antiq¬uity of Berlin.• “W hat University professorshipmeans,” Jaeger explained, “is thatthe incumbent of the chair does notbelong to any special department,but that he lectures in various de¬partments, forming a link betweenthose parts of the University whichare interested in one way or anotherin the subject he stands for.” Theidea of such a professorship, firstcalled “roving,” was developed atHarvard’s Tercentenary in 1936.Harvard thought classics especial¬ly fit for such a purpose, and Jaegerconcurs, because classics is an ele¬ment that permeates many depart¬ments, and thus may serve as a uni¬fying factor. This, he feels, may per¬haps act as a remedial influence onthe over - departmentalization andover-specialization prevalent in mostmodern universities.“I am supposed to exercise suchan influence not only by teachingbut even more by research in pursu¬ing the influence of classical civiliza¬tion in various fields of classicalstudy,” Jaeger announced.It is his intention to establish atHarvard for this purpose a researchinstitute of classical studies, which“will pursue certain tasks in some of(Continued on page 3) Adler Talks onTown Hall TonightSpeaking on a nation-wide N.B.C.hookup on the famous Town Hall ofthe Air program, Mortimer J.

Stating that itis anxious to correct all causes forjust criticism of its activities, theCommittee wishes to know what theCampus thinks it should be and do.Charged with failing to meet thesocial needs of independent students,with submitting to the control offraternity politics, and with beingmerely a prestige group, the Com¬mittee recently suffered the resigna¬tion of one of its members.No new members will be appointedto the Committee, nor will any meas¬ures be officially adopted at the meet¬ing, the Committee states. No plansfor next year will be made until afterthe meeting has been held.Assistant Dean William Rardirector of the Dramatic Association,announced yesterday that FrederickLinden had been appointed to succeedHugh Campbell as president of DAboard. Campbell resigned February17 and Linden has been acting headsince then.Before being appointed president.Linden, an Alpha Delt, was produc¬tion manager for the group.

Hence, Profes-51’ Daiches’ evaluation of I. A. Rich-rds’ “Principles of Literary Criti-ism” is interesting not only as aell-written and thoughtful analysisf one of the most influential of mod-I’n critical works, but as a manifes-ition of the viewpoint of the pi^fes-)r himself.

Tickets for Sat-day are almost completely soldt; however, there are some goodits left for Friday night.Margaret Merrifield has been ap-inted head usher for the Mirrorow, and will pick one girl assistant)m each club and several indepen-nts to be ushers. Richards, according to Prof.Daiches, reacted against the impressionism and vague transcendentalismof criticism in the last century byapproaching literature from a scientific (psychological) point of view.He put art in general back into thecontext of normal human activity byshowing that, like anything else, it isvaluable only as it “satisfies an ap¬petency” — fulfills some desire. Thespecific function of poetry is to“transmit a valuable attitude”, mean¬ing an attitude which “Represents theorganization of impulses for ‘freedomand fullness of life’.” Moreover, Rich¬ardson reunites art and moralitythrough psychology, since the artistcommunicates a “good” (psychologi¬cally) state of mind.* ♦ ♦Professor Daiches thinks that prac¬tically any systematic approach isbetter than the vague criticism of thepast hundred years, and that Rich¬ards’ psychological approach has pro¬vided criticism with valuable toolsfor approaching works o( art. He al¬so agrees with Richardson that lit¬erature cannot be considered inde¬pendently, or as an end in itself, butas a means to some further end. Buthe thinks that the ends have to bedetermined in relation to the socialcontext of the reader and the work,and the work can only be understoodas a part of man’s whole activitiy.(Continued on page 3)Cap and GownContest LeadersOutstanding Men1.

MartinIThe Libraries-God Bless 'EmThe University spends thou¬sands of dollars yearly for booksand then makes it as difficult aspossible for students to readthem. We have the fourth larg¬est university library in thecountry but one that has beenoften called the most inefficient.Hence the Maroon presents herea few suggestions for improve¬ment.It is a common complaint thatthe lighting systems in manyof the libraries have been ar¬ranged with a view to providingthe eye clinic with as much busi¬ness as possible. The usual an¬swer given by the administra¬tion is the lame one that noth¬ing can be done to improvethem. Competent engineersshould be called in to suggestimprovements. For instance,wall lights might be installed inHarper so that readers did nothave to cluster under the twochandeliers.But poor as some of the light¬ing systems are, greater useshould be made of them. Thelibrary attendants in Harperseem to feel that as long as itis possible to make out words inthe reading-room, which is un¬til about four o’clock on anaverage winter day, there isobviously no reason for turningthe lights on. It is interestingto note that those in E 31 andW 21 are always lit earlier. Andthe practice of turning on oneof the chandeliers half an hourbefore the other when the li¬brary is crowded is one that wecan’t fathom.The stack service in Harperhas been called the worst in thecountry. The usual practice isfor a person to send down tenslips at one time: Perhaps twoof them will bring up books,four will be marked charged out,three will inform him that thereis no record for the book; andone will return without anymark. One thing that could bedone to improve the service (un¬til the library tower that Mr.Raney dreams of is built) wouldbe to prevent students whohave desks in the stacks fromtaking books off the shelveswithout leaving notices andfrom keeping them on theirdesks for weeks.As for speeding up the fif¬teen-minute service, we suggestthat stack attendants be pro¬vided with roller skates.A ReminderThis week we have, not one,but two distinguished men lec-t u r i n g under the WalgreenFoundation. University students THE DAILY MAROON, THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1939I have the opportunity of hearingI Eduard Benes and Walter Lipp-mann speak, and the Maroon isas pleased as the rest of thecampus by this opportunity.But we hope that the fame ofthese men has not caused theadministration to forget thatthe Walgreen Foundation wasorganized primarily for research— specifically, the study ofAmerican institutions—and thatit still doesn’t have a permanenthead.iA Reasonable TurnIIn spite of the sincere anddeep-seated conviction on thepart of some of its membersthat it is the best of all pos¬sible Social Committees, theStudent Social Committee nextquarter is going to call in thestudents to relate what theythink of the campus’ social pro¬gram.This reasonable willingness tolisten to the opinions of othersis almost an innovation in cam¬pus affairs. The campus is sovery disunified that organiza¬tions run by campus society of¬ten forget that the other halflives at all. If the other halfpicks up the challenge offered,the Committee is apt to hearI some strange tales of the inade-I quacy of social opportunities forall but a favored few.The Committee heads deservecredit for giving themselves andthe campus the opportunity toIhear the tales.I Travelling!I BazaarI Walter Lippmann, it is rumored, willi eat at the Psi U House next Wednes-I day.

In the Chinese theatre thesetechniques have never been differ¬entiated, nor split into differenthouses—theatre, opera house, nightclub, and circus. All were consider¬ed as aids to drama and every actorwas expected to be a complete masterof his medium.This versatility was probably nec¬essary in the Chinese theatre, since . this telephone idea can help youWHILE you’re in college, you’re on the consumerside of the fence.

For this rea¬son, several members of the college’soverworked staff have written aidiclesexplaining their school to Daily Ma¬roon readers.Dean Scott Buchanan leads off to¬day. He will be folloived by articleson Seminars, on Language Tutorials,and on Mathematics Tutorials, xvrit-ten by Stringfellow Barr, CatesbyTaliaferro, and George Camenetz.We at Saint John’s have come totake it as a sign of the times thatthe outside public, both academic andnon-academic, persists in referringto our program as an educational ex¬periment. We have protested fromthe first and continue to protest invain. At the same time we should beable to claim that the more ancientand workmanlike meaning of ‘experi¬ment’, as “practical experience re¬sulting in skill” describes a necessarypart of what we are trying to do.Our protest is not against empiri¬cism, as it has often been misunder¬stood at Chicago, but rather againsta loose use of the term, experiment,which many educators take as a slo¬gan. Experiment as at present under¬stood by the experimental scientist isa careful method of setting up mater¬ials and apparatus to test an hypo¬thesis in concrete application. Strict¬ly understood the apparatus and theconditions should translate a singlehypothetical construct into concretematerials and appropriate operations;alternative hypotheses should beeliminated, especially those that canbe tested by alternative apparatus,or those that would confound the ob¬served results. Controls are set upto isolate and distinguish hyjKithesesconcretely. The aim of such experi¬mentation is to clarify concepts andto determine facts to some degree ofprobability. Emphasis is often putupon establishing degrees of verifica-tive and predictive validity for thehypothesis. clearly shown in Claude Bernard’sIntroduction to Experimental Medi¬cine, incidentally a book on our list.Biological and human affairs supplytheir own constant and automaticallycontrolled conditions, provided the in¬vestigation proceeds with well for¬mulated hypotheses in a living en¬vironment. Educational institutionssupply such experimental condition*and they can be used for such inves¬tigatory purposes. On the other handthis is not the primary purpose ofsuch institutions; both the institutionand the public suffer serious demor¬alization if administrators conducttheir affairs on that misleading sup¬position. American education showsthe effects of a recent era of educa¬tional experiments.The Saint John’s program may ef¬fect a clarification of ideas, a con¬firmation of some ancient hypothesesabout liberal education, and may havea prophetic appearance to a desper¬ate generation, but these are not itsproximate ends nor the criteria bywhich we judge ourselves. Our aimsare professional, like those of thephysician, the lawyer, and the priestin dealing with their clients; or likethose of the artist in practising hisart for the sake of informing his owncapacities. In all honesty we think wewe know what some of aims andprinciples of liberal education are,and we want to use that knowledge inworkmanlike ways for the good ofthe individual students. If we comeupon new aims and principles in theprocess, we pray that we may be in¬telligent enough to recognize themand put them to effective use.* . «Briefly put we are not puttingSaint John’s College to the uses of!I an experimental station for someschool of education, hoping that itwill turn out some patchwork curesfor current educational failures. VVeare not identifying ourselves withsome exclusive educational hypotheseswhich we hope to turn in to some edu¬cational foundation with an estab¬lished trademark on it. We are tryingto strengthen all the known educa¬tional and pedagogical methods forthe training of ourselves and our stu¬dents; we are hoping to rediscoverthe adequate means of sound liberaleducation.This point is most clearly illustrat¬ed in my own experience in lectur¬ing. Almost a generation ago in theearly part of the educational crisisthrough which we are now passing,I was getting my general educationwith a group of protesters againstthose parts of the so-called classicaleducation that showed dryrot. Lectur¬es were then associated with theempty and perverted rituals of edu¬cation, both in the minds of the stu¬dents and the teachers. Lectures be¬came suspect of dilletantism or of in¬doctrination. At best they allowedthe teacher a spurious satisfaction inhis own rhetorical efforts. He mightconclude that he had been effectivefrom the fact that examinations re¬returned his lecture notes, althoughthey might contain no evidence ofany ordeal by thought. Lectures werea great delusion. At the same timemy college had guest lecturers whoundoubtedly invaded souls and movedintellects. These lectures were formalliterary productions, sometimes de¬livered with real eloquence, and con¬structed w’ith honest regard for bothabstract and circumspect truth. Theywere neither ritual nor indoctrina¬tion, and since these were the onlycurrent rhetorical rubrics, they weremiraculous anomalies due to themagic of personality and the spokenword. They were disappointing when! read as books.rTHE DAILY MAROON, THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1939 Page ThreeDouglas RunsAgainsS CusackIn AprUProfessor Fails to PollMajority in PrimaryElections.

By ERNEST LEISERWith a daring expose of the DailyMaroon’s daring expose of gamblingconditions at the University, TheCourtier dormitory news weekly, hitthe streets yesterday, hot off thepress with its usual crackling presen¬tation of the news behind the newsthat appears in the Maroon.Under a relatively inconspicuousheadline, showing faulty news evalua¬tion on the part of the publicationsmanaging editor, the Courtier’s storyrevealed for the first time the ubi¬quitousness of vice conditions in theshadow of the “Ivory Towers.”For the few people who don’t seethe Courtier, the Maroon is reprintingexcerpts of the sensational coup onthe part of the Courtier staff.Reveal Vice DensSays the story, “Students continueto trek to such dens as the divinityschool.

The final standings are as fol¬lows: AD Phi, 39; Phi Delts, 38;Phi Psi, 33; ZBT, 20; Sigma Chi,16; Psi U, 15; DKE, 13; Phi Gams,10; CTS, 8; Rinky Dinks, 0; DeltaU, 0; Kappa Sigma, 0; and Jailbirds,0.The main attraction was the heavy¬weight bout between football menLew Hamity, ZBT, and Carl Nohl,AD Phi. Both started out slow, at¬tempting to feel each other out. Af¬ter three minutes, Hamity got on topof Nohl, but did not pin his oppo¬nent’s shoulders to the mat.While on the bottom, Carl seemedresigned to wait his fate. Meanwhile,he listened to and tried to heed ad¬vice from bystanders. It was appar¬ent that Hamity had more experi¬ence at the tug and grunt game sincehe took advantage of most of his op¬portunities. Hamity pinned Nohlwith about five minutes to go.It’s W'eis by a DecisionUndoubtedly one of the best boutswas the final of the 145 pound classin which Bethke, Alpha Delt, andWeis, Phi Psi, competed. The matchwas even all the way and Weis man¬aged to win by a decision. Phi GamAzad Sarkesian, 175, went in thering like a tiger stalking its preyand, regardless of what his methodswere, he pinned his opponent in anunusually short time.Because of the dearth of materialin the 136, 145 and 165 pound class¬es, the winners in these events wrest¬led twice before they became cham¬pions. They were: Pyle, Deke, 136;Weis, Phi Psi, 145, and Ivy, Inde¬pendent, 165. The bouts were rear¬ranged to take care of this situation.Medals were awarded for first andsecond place in each event.

By LESTER DEANCoach Nels Norgren is giving hisproteges light workouts this week inpreparation for the last two chaptersof this year’s basketball season. NextSaturday in the Wisconsin game fourSeniors, regulars on the Maroonquintet, will be playing their lasttime in the Fieldhouse, and on Mon¬day, they will represent Chicago forthe last time, when the season comesto a close at Purdue. The men whoare making their last stand are Cap¬tain Bob Cassels, Remy Meyer, andthe Murphy twins, all of whom havegiven their all, for better or worse—unfortunately, mostly the latter—to trying to pull Chicago out of theBig Ten cellar.With, regard to the two forthcom¬ing encounters, Norg is quite opti¬mistic, for neither of the Maroons’opponents has been of championshipcaliber in the conference race so far.He thinks the team has the essential“will to win,” which is an importantfactor in the development of anywinning team.“We’re All Set...”“We’re all set to go for these twogames,” remarked Norg as hewatched Lounsbury sink four consec¬utive fouls in practice yesterday. “Iwant to have the boys well rested upand in top shape for these last twogames, and I think we have reasonto be quite optimistic, certainly aboutthe Wisconsin game, and maybe evenabout our chances in the one withPurdue.”The team more or less met itsWaterloo down at Champaign Mon¬day night, when Bill Hapac and PickDehner led the Illini to a 49-29 overthe crippled Chicago team, which wasplaying without the services of ChetMurphy, who, with his brother Bill,has saved the honor of Chicago severaltimes during the season by his stellarplay. It is hoped that Chet will beover his attack of mumps in time toplay at least one of the cominggames; Coach Norgren said yester¬day that he might know by today,but that he could not be sure of hav¬ing his team intact. Maroon Track Team MeetsMarquette Tomorrow Night* * *By JOHN STEVENSThe basketball squad is winding upa season which on the surface is dis¬appointing. Nevertheless with a pro¬bable final standing of either eightor ninth with at least three Big Tenscalps under their belts. Maroon cag¬ers have much to boast of.Although the team by no meanswon the number of games that wasexpected, it managed to make a goodshowing in all but three contests. Thezone defense, about which manygrandstand coaches were skeptical,and still are for that matter, keptfastbreaking opponents from manyscores they would otherwise havemade. The tall alert Maroons kept theball away from under the basket, bet¬ter than a man-for-man defense hasdone in the past few years.This defense is ineffective in cer¬tain circumstances. In the closingminutes it is extremely difficult tobreak up a stall with a zone, and theMaroons lost some precious time inhesitating to shift to man-for-man.Also, teams with real sharpshootersgo to town against a zone, because alittle fast passing usually opens upmany opportunities for moderatelylong shots.The team, which worried such ag¬gregation as Loyola, Indiana, andMinnesota deserves real credit. Muchof the scrap is due to the newcomers.Bill and Chet Murphy. These recruitsfrom the net game are the most wide¬awake ball players the Fieldhouse hasseen for many years. Time after timeone or the other broke up passes tostart fast breaks down the floor.As for the team as a whole, poorshooting seems to have been the mainweakness. Lounsbury, normally one ofthe best shots in the conferencecouldn’t seem to hit the hoop with hisusual regularity. Stampf, who shoulddevelop into a first-class ball playeris high scorer for the five to date.Meyer and Cassels, although bothgo(^ under the backboard, failed tomake any impressive scoring sprees. The University track team willmeet Marquette tomorrow night inthe Fieldhouse in the only non-con¬ference dual meet on the Maroonschedule.Marquette overwhelmed Michigan |State, 78-31, last week, while Chicagotook a second place in a triangularrelay meet, losing to Wisconsin andedging out Purdue. Marquette has al¬so lost to Wisconsin.Each team is sure of only twoevents, but Chicago has a slight edgein most of the others. Ed Davidson,local pole vaulter, who took a secondplace in the Illinois relay carnival re¬cently, should top Ernest Stolberg,Marquette veteran.Hugh Rendleman, Maroon soph¬omore, will probably have little dif¬ficulty in heaving the shot fartherthan Co-captain Larry Hartig of theHilltop squad. Rendleman has tossedthe weight 46*2%” in competition thisyear.Expect Burke to WinMarquette’s Edward Burke hascleared 6*9%” in the high jump andshould beat Ted Mafit and Jim Ray,Chicago sophomores. Burke formerlyheld the world’s indoor record offwood, but has been suffering from abad ankle and tied for a bad thirdin the Wisconsin meet.Charles Beaudry and Herman Carr,Marquette veteran quarter milersshould outdistance Bob Merriam andChet Powell, of Chicago. Carr hasclicked off :48.2 in the 440 outdoors.John Davenport, Big Ten indoor andoutdoor sprint champion, has been de¬feated in all his dual meet starts inthe season to date, and may bepressed by a Hilltop trio composed ofHarry Kinert, Maynard Black, andBeaudry.
