Any former buck private, drilled in the art of standing at attention, would have been proud of the General, who didn't budge. ► General Marshall, invited to receive 11 honorary degrees this June, accepted three: Harvard, Amherst, and Brown. He came to Providence directly from Amherst. ► During his visit, the General was indus- triously guarded by Providence police, two of whom, marching in plain clothes near him in the Commencement procession, were mistaken for U. S. Secret Service men. Two policemen were on duty watch- ing over President Wriston's house, where Secretary Marshall was an overnight guest Sunday night. Late in the evening they found a young man fumbling at the lock on the back door and pounced on him, letting him go only when a member of the household identified him as one of the stu- dents who has been living in the Presi- dents house through the academic year. ► Never was the sidewalk crowd so large nor so many photographers of all degrees of competence in evidence as when the 1947 Commencement procession passed. All eyes were waiting for the Secretary of State, whose presence as a "guest of the University" had been announced (alt'.ough the tradition of not anticipating honorary degrees had been observed). One small boy walked the whole route down the Hill, as near as he could get to Mr. Marshall, from the campus to the church door, smil- ing up at his hero. Forgetting that the General was now a civilian, many looked for an officer in uniform. (Some people looked twice at the only uniformed Army officer among the invited gviests — Governor Pastore's aide.) ► As the procession moved out. Secretary Marshall began a conversation with his marching partner. Allen Dulles, former diplomat and OSS official whose views on foreign affairs are grounded in wide ex- perience and study. The chat became so spirited and Marshall was so intent in driving home points that he seemed un- aware of his surroundings at first. The first of many bursts of applause at the Van Wickle Gates, seemed to take him by sur- prise. Though embarrassed at first, he beamed and occasionally acknowledged the continuing ovation. ► One young girl broke through the line on the return to the campus, saying to the plain-clothesmen, "May I come in?" "Sis- ter, you're in," they said. She wanted an autograph, a sudden decision, for she had no pen or pencil. The General fished for his own pen, signed with some difficulty while walking, and remarked, "I don't write this way all the time." The girl was Gwen Anthony, daughter of H. Cushman Anthony '26. ► When the procession had reached the College Green, no time was lost in summon- ing the Secretary of State to the platform, reading the citation, and placing the Brown hood over his head. General Marshall had to leave immediately in order to fly to Washington for a 2:30 White House ap- pointment. He did not change from his cap and gown until he was in an automo- bile on the way to the Hillsgrove Airport. ► When General Marshall was Chief of Staff in the War Department, running a global war, his assistant secretary was Miss Florence Newsome, first Rhode Island woman to join the WAAC. Now Mrs. Charles E. Johnson of Brook St.. she dropped around the corner to President Wriston's house to leave a small gift for the General, found him arrived Sunday night ahead of schedule, and was one of his few visitors. ► There was a cute youngster of four or five with his parents in Sayles Hall during the Alumni Meeting. He was a fine, little lad and no mistake, but the restless time arrived when his chatter began to distract those who sought to listen to Mr. Dulles' important speech. The mother knew the only thing to do was to take the boy out of the hall. His neighbors settled back to enjoy the new silence and pick up the thread of the discussion again. But the boy wasn't done; at the door, )ust as he was being led out, he turned and called to Mr. Dulles with a polite, good-humored and very loud "Goodbye!" ► Among the duties of Prof. Zenas Bliss over Commencement was to act as aide and guide to General Marshall. But one responsibility he was able to pass on: Uni- versity Hall called him in May to ask where the sun would be at 10:30 on the morning of June 16. That one he re- ferred to the Astronomy Department, al- though the former navigator of the Amer- ica's Cup Defenders could have figured it out, no doubt. University Hall had to know about the sun in planning where to put the platform for the outdoor gradua- tion, so that the question had a point. In- cidentally, the sun behaved beautifully on June 16, ► The Brown and Pembroke Seniors had all received their degrees, obeying the Latin commands implicitly. Their instruction had included interpretation of the phrases "Candidati . . . consurgant" and "Candidati . . . ascendant." They got up again when Dr. Wriston ordered: "Candidati honorati nunc ascendant." The Seniors sat down again, however, while the members of the Classics Faculty scowled and the candidates for honorary degrees mounted the plat- form, as called. ► Jean Muller Ross, Pembroke Senior, re- ceived her degree on Commencement Day in Tokyo. She went out early to Japan with her husband, who is with the State Department, and took her final exams by mail through special arrangement between Pembroke and the Tokyo Army Educa- tional Center. ► Kenneth J. Hovey '27 of Baltimore proudly wore in the Commencement pro- cession the class badge of his grandfather, the late Rev. Arthur J. Hovey '69. ► President Bixler, speaking at the Alumni Dinner, said he had recently seen in Cali- fornia a man who had been one of his "most inspiring teachers" — Dr. Alexander Meiklejohn '93. ► William Ely '78 of Coronado, Calif., was the oldest alumnus to take part in the weekend functions. He celebrated his 89th birthday by attending the graduation exer- cises. Since his own, he has been on Col- lege Hill virtually every year for Com- mencement and this year drove on from the Coast, where he makes his winter home. Sharing the applause with him at the Alumni Dinner were three members of the Class of 1882 who came in arm in arm. comiuucii on pag€ Z9 COMMENCEMENT: AL FRESCO: Looking from the rear of the crowd of 4000 as 517 Seniors received their de- grees at Brown.

XLVIII 1947 NUMBER 1 Pitblis/ied seven times a year in August, October, December, January, February, April, and June by Brown University, Provi- dence 12, R. I, Admitted to the second class of mail matter under the Act of August 24, 1912, at the Providence Post Office. ► ► Variations on a Commencement Theme ► ► A broken precedent, on which the gods of the open air smiled for the consequent benefit of 517 Seniors and thousands of witnesses, was the feature of a memorable June weekend at Brown, the University's 179th annual Commencement. The graduation exercises, June 16, were split between the First Baptist Meeting House, host to graduating classes since 1776, and the College Green, a happy expedient made necessary by the number of Seniors. What would have happened if one of those rare rainy Commencements had arrived? That is pure horrendous speculation, for the entire weekend was marked by good weather — for the festivities of Class Day and Class Night, for the Graduate Sehool's separate Convocation (revived in the former tradition) on Saturday, for the Baccalaureate Service and President's Reception, for the great day itself, and of course for the class reunions and Alumni Dinner. It was a record-breaking Senior Class — 411 men and 106 Pembroke women — and the dilemma of accommodat- ing their guests in the Meeting House when they were to receive their degrees was discussed at some length in the last issue of this magazine. Other thousands had an inter- est in the occasion when it was announced that Secretary of State George C. Marshall was to be present, to march down the Hill with graduates so many of whom had fought under his command. BOTH CHURCH AND GREEN ► Tradition was honored, in that the Seniors and the alumni proceeded as always to the Meeting House for a portion of the ceremony. But, after the delivering of the Senior orations, the exercises were interrupted, the aca- demic procession was reformed, and all returned to the top of the Hill. And under the elms of the College Green, with old University Hall as the background for a special platform, the Seniors received their diplomas. Parents, wives, and other guests who could have found no place in the church, thus saw the formal graduation and were proud. They had also listened, over a public address sys- tem, to the earlier proceedings, broadcast from the church to Sayles Hall. As was the case a year ago, a Pembroke Senior shared with a Brown Senior the honor of addressing the graduat- ing class. Miss Frances M. Tallman of Providence, seeking a basis for international understanding, urged an organized system of personal correspondence between individuals everywhere to bring this about. Joseph R. Weisberger of East Providence said peace-makers must know the differ- ence between solutions and expedients, and above all must know themselves if we are to avoid another Vienna or Versailles. The Senior orations are as traditional as Com- mencement and of as long standing as Brown. Further evidence of the return to days of peace was provided when Capt. Francis D. McCorkle, commanding officer of the Navy ROTC unit at Brown, mounted the platform to swear in candidates for Marine or Navy com- missions. Compared with last June's 104, only eight were commissioned. THROUGH THE VAN WICKLE GATES as the proces- sion returned to the ranipus. Prof. George E. Downing is niace-bearer; behind him Chancellor Sharpe and President Wriston, with Chaplain Washburn following. The gates, of course, are swinging out, as always on Cominencenient Day. HIS 10th annivers.ary ► It was President Wriston's 10th anniversary at Brown, and a brimming one it proved to be for him. There were Senior dinners at Brown and Pembroke, there were the exercises "Under the Elms" on Class Day, there was his reception after the Baccalaureate Service on Sunday. The Corporation held its annual meeting on Saturday, he paid brief visits to a dozen class reunions over the week- end, he was host to General Marshall, he announced the year's benefactions to Brown during the Sayles Hall meet- ing, he dedicated a memorial to Dr. Charles H. Hare '85, benefactor of Andrews House. And a major appearance was as guest of honor at the Alumni Dinner in Marvel Gym Sunday night where there was congratulatory refer- ence not only to his 10 years at Brown but also his im- pending wedding. But to many an alumnus there is no event of the June weekend, however sentimental, however impressive, that can compare with the simple fact that Commencement THE COVER PHOTO: A rooftop view from Slater Hall of the graduation on the Green. There are empty seats only because Seniors have left them to go to the platform for their diplomas. BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY time means reunion with one's college friends. This fellow- ship in a curiously persisting timelessness brings the men hack, a form of their allegiance to the central Brown. This year all major anniversaries were observed and an increas- ing number of minor ones. Three reunions were campus- based, while scores of other Brown men availed themselves of Commencement housing in the dormitories. (It is our plan to report fully on the various reunions in the Sep- tember issue.) Exams over, the Seniors started their program June 12 with dinner in Faunce House, attended as well by those men who had completed their studies in February and were returned for the graduation formalities. President Wriston, at his best on such an occasion, was the principal speaker, but Dean Samuel T. Arnold and Alumni Execu- tive Officer William B. McCormick also talked to the Sen- iors, the latter on behalf of the alumni, in welcome. Vice- President Bruce M. Bigelow was toastmaster, while Senior Marshal Paul A. Nickel presented the varsity letter awards to the athletes and acted for the Class of 1910 in giving its trophy to John C. Petropoulos, whose combination of scholarship and football achievement entitled him to it. There were cigars. CL.ASS DAY AND NIGHT ► "Under the elms" on the College Green, in addition to Marshal Nickel and Dr. Wriston, the participants for the Seniors were Michael A. Gammino, Jr., historian; Abraham Ehrenhaus, orator; and M. David Bell, poet. A crowd estimated at 1000 had a preview of the Commence- ment accommodations in the open air between University Hall and Sayles Hall. Dean and Mrs. Arnold, Dean and Mrs. Kenny, and Dean and Mrs. Walker received the Seniors and their guests informally at the end of the exer- cises. The same wooden floor served that night for the "campus dance" of Class Night. It was an attractive spec- tacle, an opportunity for meeting friends during the prome- nade, and a good party generally. At midnight the danc- ing outdoors and in Sayles Hall halted for the time-pre- scribed singing of Brown songs on the steps of Sayles. It was one of those moments you like to remember, and do. THEIR 60rh: Dr. Edmund D. Chescbro, with sign, and Dr. Arthur I. Connell advertise their anniversary. Sen- ator Green marched with the Fellows, and Irving C. Hicks also attended the reunion. While the Corporation met on Saturday, the Rhode Island Alpha of Phi Beta Kappa met and added to its mem- bership and the alumnae of Pembroke had their annual meeting. In the afternoon the Graduate School awarded 48 advanced degrees at its separate Convocation in Sayles Hall, with Dean Richard Chace Tolman of California Tech as speaker, a tea in the John Carter Brown Library adding its gracious hour. Through the last weeks of the College year, one occa- sion after another served as reminder of the retirement of the Chaplain, Dr. Arthur L. Washburn. His last chapel was attended by a warm salute from the students, com- pliments came to him at formal luncheon and informal dinner, and it was wholly appropriate that he should be the preacher of the Baccalaureate Sermon. His congrega- tion seemed to receive the full depth of meaning and emo- tion in his valedictory and benediction. The President's Reception, which followed the service, was held in the open air on the south end of the College Green near the flagpole. Dr. Wriston, Dean Morriss, Dr. and Mrs. Bige- low, Dr. and Mrs. Arnold, and Dr. and Mrs. Cochran were in the receiving line. THE REUNION OF REUNIONS ► The EXPERIMENT of holding the Alumni Dinner on Sunday evening seemed to work out well, for there were large delegations which came back from the reunions to join with the "off-year" men in the "reunion of reunions." More than 600 thronged the Marvel Gym for the affair arranged by Judge Robert E. Quinn's committee. Dominat- ing the scene was the large painting of Van Wickle Gates and University Hall by Leslie Allen Jones '26, a handsome and deceptively realistic representation. Light-hearted moments were interspersed among the serious messages from the head table. There were cheers for alumni venerables and other notables as the chair noted their presence. There were rousing songs of Brown as prompted by Earl M. Pearce '17 and Earl Perkins '12. And a high spot was a presentation to Dr. Wriston by Charles P. Sisson '11, chairman of the Association of Class Secre- taries. The gift was a mammoth, festive, and reputedly edible cake whose origin had been supervised by Fred C. Broomhead '05. It was in the shape of a quadrangle, a completed quadrangle, with 10 figures of boys and girls, symbols of those under his guidance, serving as the anni- versary candles. On top were the figures of bride and groom, and Mr. Sisson did his best to learn the secret of Dr. Wriston's wedding date. ("I'd tell you if I knew the date myself," the President rephed.) The President of the Associated Alumni was not on hand until the next day, for he was receiving an honorary ► BULLETIN: Appointment of Robert O. Loosley of Providence as Secretary of Brown University was announced in early July as this issue was on the press. He will not assume his duties at the University until after the 1947 Red Feather campaign of the R. L Community Chest, of which he has been executive secre- tary. I "As Secretary of the University," President Wriston said in newspaper releases, "Mr. Loos- ley will become one of the administrative offi- cers of Brown. His major responsibility will be in the field of University development, and he will have general charge of long-term finan- cial promotion. His first responsibility will be for the completion of the current Housing and Development campaign." i BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY IN THE OPEN AIR?

Crossley's inspiring, forward-looking leadership and his faithful attention to office during the two years of his term now ending. Mr. Smith made the annual award of Brown Bear Trophies for conspicuous alumni service to two stalwarts, Lewis S. Mil- ner "02 of Providence and William P. Burnham "07 of Braintree, Mass. (Previous winners have been: Dr. Cross- ley, Dr. John J. Morrissey "10, the late Col. Karl D. Gard- ner "15, Quentin J. Reynolds "24, W. Earl Sprackling '10, Dr. William W. Browne "08, Alexander Graham "06, the late Dennis F. O'Brien "98, the late Albert B. Meacham "96, and Ralph M. Palmer "10, all of New York; Nathaniel Blaisdell "83 of San Francisco, and Henry S. Chafee "09 of Providence.) CH.^MPIONS OF THE MIND ► One of the two principal speakers, a very ingratiat- ing, effective one — Dr. J. Seelye Bixler, President of Colby College, warned that "there is much knowledge in the world, but little wisdom, and the world needs wisdom to survive."" Reviewing the work of the veterans in Ameri- can colleges, he acknowledged that they were working hard and getting high grades. But he wondered if some of the work was not feverish rather than reflective. "If we are not careful, they will simply add to the number of those who already possess knowledge and lack wisdom,"" he said. While they were rushing to recoup the loss of the best years of their lives, the veteran's plight was not wholly a war aftermath, for before the war it had become fashion- able to "play down the claims of the mind." "Now we find ourselves in the grip of fear. It is impos- sible to do justice to the aims of liberal education while we are in this mood. We shall turn our backs on what the study of the mind has to teach us if we accept the view that life is lived on the basis of sheer competition. We must reach the level where we understand what things and ideas are, in and for themselves. Ten years ago Brown found a President who understood what the search for ideas could mean to the students engaged in the search and the society influenced by it. Under his leadership — and he has fear- lessness to match his active mind — I hope American educa- tion may go on to serve our times and the future, to bring out the distinctive contribution the mind has to offer, to insist on the essential relevance of the intellectual quest to social problems." BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY President Wriston told the alumni that the world had a lesson to learn from the revolt of the intellectuals, in the light of Europe's tragic experience and the detachment of our own intellectuals from the social, economic, and po- litical fabric of the nation. The teachers' strikes showed how seriously the community had come to undervalue their services, how they had drifted to the left because of the destruction of the vast neutral :one of liberalism, how the significance of the individual was declining. The anti- intellectualism of society is provoking trouble as a natural consequence, he felt. Larger salaries are necessary but the least of the necessities; the greatest need is for our indus- trial society to realize the validity of the words of our Charter at Brown: that institutions for liberal education are "highly beneficial to society by forming the rising gen- eration to virtue, knowledge, and useful literature and . . . are for the general advantage and honor of the govern- ment." A general reception preceded the Alumni Dinner, with the Athletic Trophy Room attracting a large number of visitors to talk of victories and heroes whose souvenirs are there on display in Marvel Gym. AN APPE.^L TO AID EUROPE ► The Commencement came to its close with the cus- tomary Sayles Hall assembly, the annual meeting of the Associated Alumni, which was particularly well attended. The featured speaker was one of the new alumni of the morning, Dr. Allen W. Dulles, who made an effective appeal for economic aid to Western Europe. Admitting that the program would be expensive in terms of money and effort, he contended such assistance was vital in order to forestall disaster abroad, on which Communism would feed. He urged his plan as a preventive but also believed it would bridge the gap in understanding and collaboration between the democratic and Communistic states. The al- ternative might be an economic Pearl Harbor, he said. His program was five-fold: 1. Take account of the coal problems of England, France, and of the Ruhr. 2. Deal with the food production shortages in those countries where local production is insufficient. 3. Permit an authoritative agency to deal, even drastically, with the economy of the three western zones of Germany. 4. Funnel the maximum share of available credit into increasing production rather than into mere feeding. '!. Take account of the overpopu- lation in Western Europe and the need for a controlled but large-scale emigration. Our share in the cost might approximate the cost of a few months' participation in World War II. Dr. Dulles pointed out that his observations were made after his convictions had been strengthened during a re- cent trip abroad, supplementing his wartime impressions. Americans at home, he said, do not appreciate the conse- quences of Europe's two devastating wars. We must not overlook the historical fact that peoples have maintained their freedom only where reasonable standards of living have been preserved. "The time has come to draw up a balance sheet," he said, "to weigh the importance to the United States of acting in time to give Europe a chance of survival as a free society." The plan would require "a pooling of the resources of democracy in the common interest." Governor John O. Pastore brought the greetings and compliments of the State of Rhode Island in cordial, gra- cious fashion. Dr. Moses L. Crossley '09 conducted a brief business meeting, during which alumni election results were announced and amendments to the alumni by-laws were voted in accordance with the recommendations from the Advisory Council and Executive Committee published in the last issue of this magazine. President Wriston, be- speaking the University's gratitude for the year's gifts, cited a number of them, the full list being published in advance proofs of the Alumni Monthly story, which were dis- tributed at the hall. The presiding officer was Chapin S. Ncwhard "22 of St. Louis, member of the 2 5 -year class. The platform group also included Chaplain Arthur L. Washburn, Chancellor Henry D. Sharpe '94, Col. G. Ed- ward Buxton '02, National Chairman of the Brown Uni- versity Housing and Development Campaign, and H. Stan- ton Smith '21, alumni president-elect. Throughout the Commencement period, the LJniversity Club held open house, and special exhibits in the libraries were rewarding. i MRS. HENRY M. WRISTON: The bride of Brown's President was Miss Marguerite Woodworlh, Dean of Women at Oberlin College, who held similar posts at Syracuse and Lawrence College. A graduate of Syracuse, she also studied at Columbia, St. Hugh's College (Ox- ford), and the Sorbonne. Those who know her speak of her as a woman of charm and grace as well as profes- sional attainment, and all Brunonians, felicitating the President and happy for him, await their opportunity to welcome Mrs. Wriston. The wedding took place June 28 in Ilingham, Mass., at the home of Dr. Wriston's father. Rev. Henry L. Wriston, who officiated. Only members of the immediate family were present, with Miss Barbara Wriston attending the bride and Walter B. Wriston serving as best man. BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY Accolade for 10 < ► ► Four alumni were among the 10 distinguished Amer- icans upon whom Brown University conferred honorary degrees during the Commencement exercises on the College Green this year. Popular interest centered in the degree of Doctor of Laws which Secretary of State George C. Marshall received as the first act in the precedent-making ceremony in the open air east of University Hall. The alumni included: James C. Collins, secretary of the Class of 1892, Providence attorney who was a founder and the first chairman of the National Association of Bar Examiners. Arthur B. Homer, '17, who administered the largest ship construction project in the world during the war before his elevation to the presidency of the Bethle- hem Steel Company in 1945. Miss Marion S. Cole '07, Principal of Lincoln School in Providence, prominent in the field of American secondary education. Rev. Merrick L. Streeter '07, Baptist minister and former Burma mis- sionary who was an OWI aide during the war. Science, public service, and the church were represented by the other recipients. Allen W. Dulles, author, diplomat and New York lawyer, is president of the Council on For- eign Relations and the Near East College Association. He w'as a leading figure in the Office of Strategic Services dur- ing the war and was chief of the OSS Mission to Germany after V-E Day. Rt. Rev. Granville Gaylord Bennett is former Bishop of Duluth and the new Bishop of the Epis- copal Diocese of Rhode Island. Vice Admiral Harold G. Bowen was director of the Naval Research Laboratory dur- ing the war and special advisor to the Secretary of the Navy on scientific matters. He is the brother of Col. Wil- liam M. P. Bowen '84. Columbus O. Iselin, a leader in oceanography, has been director of the Woods Hole In- stitution for the past six years. Louis C. Gerry is president of the R. I. Hospital, wartime chairman of the Providence Chapter of the American Red Cross, and a prominent business executive. Announcement was also made that Master of Art de- grees ad eundem were being awarded to six full profes- sors, making them honorary alumni of Brown, since they are not Brown graduates. They are: George K. Ander- son, English; Maurice H. Heins, Mathematics; Hunter Kellenberger, Modern Languages; Captain Francis D. Mc- Corkle, USN, Naval Science; Harold Schlosberg, Psy- chology; and Philip Taft, Economics. Presidential citations followed the Brown tradition for concise eloquence and integrity, as Dr. Wriston spoke for the Board of Fellows. The citations follow, in the order of the conferring (except that General Marshall's was read first to permit his early departure) : LOUIS CARDELL GERRY, A.M.: Democracy thrives on public spirit, upon the readiness of citizens to contribute time and labor, energy and money to private agencies dedicated to the public interest. Without thought of recognition you have put your keen insight and gift of analysis at the service of the Red Cross, the Rhode Island Hospital, and many other charitable and educational enterprises. MERRICK LYON STREETER, D.D.: Immediately after leav- ing divinity school, you turned your talents and your zeal to mis- sionary endeavor in Burma. Your frontier post in one of the most sensitive areas in all the world gave you profound understanding of the Asiatic temper. Following a hazardous escape from Japan- ese occupation forces, you served the Office of War Information with rare proficiency, performing onerous assignments as trans- lator and broadcaster in native tongues, exerting influence of strategic value upon the populations of Burma and Indo-China. MARION SHIRLEY COLE, Ed.D.: Transcending sound and constructive administrative management of an educational institu- tion are ability to enlighten and inspire unfolding minds, capacity TIBI SOLEMNITER TRADO: The Secretary of Slate receives Brown's honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. With Dr. Wriston on the platform are Prof. Robert H. George and Prof. William T. Hastings. to recognize and appreciate subtleties of personality, wisdom in developing individual poise, and skill in encouraging social re- sponsibility. Because in all these respects you have fully capitalized rich opportunities, we delight to honor you. COLUMBUS O'DONNELL ISELIN, Sc.D.: Through years of patient toil, you attained a position of leadership in a field of tremendous military and civilian significance. Through foresight and wise direction, you were able to correlate and control the vast war program of oceanographic research for the Navy. Personifying the true scientific spirit in your own labors, you added deft and tactful guidance to scholarship and learning, stimulating others to their best endeavors. HAROLD GARDINER BOWEN, Sc.D.: Son of Providence, product of its schools and the United States Naval Academy, with post-graduate study at Columbia and the Naval Post-Graduate School at Annapolis: Notable innovations with high-pressure, high-temperature steam; valuable experimentation in power sys- tems, particularly turbines; pilot operations for the concentration of fissionable material; contributions to the refinement of radar; all these manifest a versatile and inquiring intellect, and give you distinction in a distinguished service. ARTHUR BARTLETT HOMER, LL.D.: The historical American success story tells of the boy who began at the bottom, and by virtue, industry, arid ability worked his way to the top. Latterly the idea that a man can achieve success by sticking to his last has all but disappeared. Modern times have seen restlessness in shifting from one employment to another. With particular pleasure, therefore, we recognize an alumnus who has moved steadily from responsibility to responsibility within a single cor- poration, growing in grasp and outlook, as in authority. There is genuine satisfaction in honoring one who has reached a post of industrial statesmanship which, through his own endeavors, he is fully qualified to fill. JAMES CROSS COLLINS, LL.D.: A character in which is neither variableness nor shadow of turning; a mind alert, perceptive, resourceful in the application of legal procedures; a personality which unites warmth with dignity and reserve; humor, quick and rich, combined with self-restraint; and a deep sense of earnest- ness; these traits have brought you recognition at the Bar, the cordial respect of fellow citizens, and the loyal affection of hosts of friends. GRANVILLE GAYLORD BENNETT, LL.D.: Brown Uni- versity seeks to honor you, not so much for having attained high office in the Church, nor for those gifts of leadership and admin- istration which twice have justified your being chosen head of a diocese; rather we honor your inner qualities which shine through the outword deed; your dedication, without any reservation, to a great cause: your passionate devotion; the conviction and penetra- tion of your exposition of the gospel. ALLEN WELSH DULLES, LL.D.: An inherited interest in American diplomacy, broad experience in the State Department and on foreign assignments, the practice of law upon an interna- tional scale laid the foundation for wartime diplomatic intelligence work of the highest order. The vast energy, the infinite resource- BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY fulness, the sweep of imagination, the flawless discretion, and rare discrimination in reporting, which you put at the service of your country, bore abundant fruits and helped end the strife with at least one of our principal enemies. GEORGE CATLETT MARSHALL, LL.D.: No one in Amer- ican history has manifested more effectively the statesmanship inherent in superb military leadership; no one understands more clearly the relationship which power must bear to political com- mitments in a world still badly disorganized; no other person has better combined shrewd judgments of character, rigorous stand- ards of performance, and unique patience in securing teamwork in great enterprises. So may you bring to fulfillment Abraham Lincoln's ideal, and "with malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, . . . strive on to finish the work" so nobly begun and "to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace . . . with all nations." ISew Honors for Dr. Crossley ► ► Wesley.\n University this June honored Dr. Moses L. Crossley "09, "brilliant son of our neighbor Brown Uni- versity, inspiring teacher at Wesleyan,- and since 1918 a recognised leader in the American organic chemical in- dustry." President Butterfield conferred the honorary de- gree of Doctor of Science with the following citation : "Moses Leverock Crossley, research director of a great chemical concern: after serving Wesleyan well for five years as a liberal scholar and teacher, you soon achieved leadership and distinction in the field of industrial re- search. Beyond your great talents for organising intelli- gent and productive research are even greater gifts and attitudes of fundamental importance in social leadership. Committee to the importance of pure science, aware of the need for broad and versatile scholars, you are above all concerned with science's contribution to human welfare at its basic levels of physical and mental health, and social and political harmony. Since you reflect in yourself and your achievements the faith of the liberal college, we wel- come you back among us to achieve at our hands the hon- orary degree of Doctor of Science." On July 24 Dr. Crossley, who has just completed his term as President of Brown's Associated Alumni, will fly to London to attend the 11th Congress of Pure and Ap- plied Chemistry. He was also a member of the eighth, ninth, and tenth Congresses in 1912, 1934, and 1938. In addition, he will be U. S. delegate to the Union of Applied Chemistry. At each session he will present papers, par- ticularly concerned with summarizing work in the chem- istry of blood proteins in disease. Dr. Crossley received the 1947 Gold Medal of the Amer- ican Institute of Chemists May 2. Among the speakers at the Institute's dinner was President Wriston who de- scribed "Crossley as I Know Him." They were colleagues on the Wesleyan Faculty before their association at Brown. The June issue of The Chemist gives the speeches before the Institute on "The Scientific Achievements of Dr. Cross- ley" by Dr. A. J. Hill, director of Yale's Sterling Chemistry Laboratory, and "Dr. Crossley in Industry," by S. C. Moody, Vice-President of American Cyanamid Co. and general manager of Calco Chemical Division. Dr. Cross- ley's response on "Research and Human Welfare" is the lead article in an issue which has his portrait on the cover and is otherwise devoted to the fine tribute paid the leader. Honorary Degree to Dean Arnold ► Dean Samuel T. Arnold '13, cited as a true friend of the College as well as a distinguished scientist whose wartime service in the Manhattan District was of high im- portance, received the honorary degree of Doctor of Sci- ence at the 1947 Commencement of the R. I. College of Pharmacy and Allied Sciences. President Albert W. Claf- lin '06 read the citation. Dean W. Henry Rivard '08 gave a major address. Aliiniiii Choices < H. STANTON SMITH '21 : The new President of the As- sociated Alumni re- reived his cane. ► ► H. Stanton Smith '21, Rhode Island Vice-President of the Associated Alumni for the past two years, became national President after general balloting by the Brown alumni this spring. When his election was announced by his predecessor. Dr. Moses L. Crossley '09, Smith mounted the platform of Sayles Hall on Commencement Day to re- ceive the President's Cane as symbol of office. Mr. Smith has just completed an effective term as Presi- dent of the Providence Brown Club, was chairman of the 1946 Alumni Dinner, is treasurer of his class, chairman of the nautical advisory board of the Brown Yacht Club, and an active worker in the Housing and Development Campaign. Vice-President and director of the Hope Web- bing Co. and the Anchor Webbing Co., he is also active in community affairs and business associations. John S. Collier '29, former Olympic hurdler, now a mas- ter at St. Paul's School, Concord, N. H., was chosen alumni representative on the Brown Athletic Advisory Council to succeed Paul N. Swaffield '16 of Boston. Starting on a three-year term, Mr. Collier will be one of three Council members representing the alumni, including the new Chair- man of the Council, Thomas F. Gilbane '33, and J. Rich- mond Fales '10. The alumni also voted on Vice-Presidents and Directors for their respective regions. Vice-Presidents, serving two years, will be: J. CunlifFe Bullock '02 of Providence; Ed- ward T. Brackett '14 of Boston; Dr. William W. Browne '08 of Yonkers, N. Y.; F.

In addition to those named on the back-cover of this issue, the Board of Directors will also include seven alumni to be appointed by the President of the Associated Alumni and three Alumni Trustees and a Faculty representative to be appointed by the President of the University. Fred- erick E. Schoeneweiss '20, who was unopposed for re- election as alumni Treasurer, is also a member of the new board, which will meet in September to organise. < 8 in Andrews House ► ► In A QUIET, stirring ceremony, apart from the excite- ment of Commencement, Brown University honored one of its most generous benefactors Sunday afternoon, June 15, when a plaque was unveiled in memory of the late Dr. Charles Henry Hare '85. The Boston gynecologist, reci- pient of a Brown honorary degree at the end of his career, had given $331,570 in 1937 to establish Andrews House and later a substantial fund to provide income for its maintenance as one of the world's finest collegiate infirma- ries. As President Wriston pointed out in a brief commentary before the gathering, a tablet had been placed in the main hall of Andrews House to identify the principal benefactors, but the inspiration had come from Dr. Hare. As to form, nature, and even its furnishings, it had been his decision. "Dr. Hare was interested in the whole man — not just medical, surgical, or neurological care," Dr. Wriston said. "He wanted us to have for the students a home away from home, even better than a home. He had been shown the first plans, for a modern hospital, clean, aseptic, hard. In- stead, he happily selected this mansion so that it would be a home in atmosphere, surroundings, and actuality. "This building reveals, too, the influence of a teacher on a student, the hard electric effect a mature mind makes in contact with a mind less mature but receptive, rich, and lively. Bennie Andrews touched the life of the young man so that his inspiration always remained. It was a specific request that the building should be named, not for Hare but for Andrews. It was his hope that others would find their interest in Andrews House grow with the years. That in- terest was there when Brown first opened the doors of An- drews House. I hope it continues and increases." ► In wording the plaque about Dr. Hare is fehcitous: "As a student at Brown University in the days of Prof. E. Benjamin Andrews, he caught that great teacher's infec- tious enthusiasm; as a physician, he exhibited profound in- terest in the science of medicine and the art of healing; as a loyal alumnus, he gave tangible expression to his deep concern for student health and welfare in his munificent gifts for Andrews House." (see photo, page 30.) A prayer by Dr. Arthur L. Washburn, the University Chaplain, brought the simple exercises to a close, with these words: "Almighty God, Our Heavenly Father, we here dedicate this tablet to the daily memory among us of Charles Henry Hare, and in lasting gratitude for this gift to his University of Andrews House We pray that thy blessing may rest upon this house; that here may dwell the peace and the unfailing sense of Thy Healing Presence. Bless its officers, doctors, nurses, and patients, and all who labor for its maintenance. And grant that here may come that health and strength which are Thy will for Thy chil- dren that in well-being of soul and body they may go forth from its doors with renewed powers for the obligations and duties of their several callings. We ask this our prayer in Christ's name, and may His Grace and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit abide with us evermore." Among those present were such friends of Dr. Hare as Dr. and Mrs. John T. Williams of Boston, George J. Holden '91, Harold A. Grout '13, representing the Brown Club of Boston, and Mrs. Grout, members of the Corporation, alumni body, student body, and staff. i Chosen by the Cosmos Club ► Dr. Waldo G. Leland '00, member of the Brown Board of Fellows and Secretary of the Council of Learned Society, is the new President of Washington's famous Cosmos Club. i BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY ► The New Trustees ►► Roger T. Clapp '19 of Providence, George T. Metcalf ' 1 3 of Providence, retiring chairman of the Brown Alumni Fund, and John G. Peterson '17 of Minneapolis were elected Trustees of Brown University at the annual meet- ing of the Corporation June 14. The Providence men were elected, following nomination by alumni and alumnae in a general balloting which this year broke records in the total votes cast. The percentage of ballots returned was more than adequate to validate the nomination under terms of the agreement between the Corporation and the Asso- ciated Alumni. Clapp and Metcalf were the leading choices among seven candidates on the alumni ballot; they succeed Sidney Clifford '15 and Dr. Marshall N. Fulton '20. The Corporation accepted the resignation of Edward A. Adams '12 of Los Angeles, because of ill health, electing Peterson in his stead. A native of Saba, Dutch West In- dies, the latter prepared for Brown at Hope Street High in Providence. He was a banking official for some time, serving with the Chase National Bank of New York and making his present connection through that agency. He is now Vice-President of the Cargill Elevator Company of Minneapolis, a powerful factor in the grain world. He was an Army Lieutenant in the First World War. The Corporation heard reports from the- President and Treasurer of the University, and spokesmen for the fol- lowing standing committees: Library — Dr. Albert C. Thomas '08; Management of the John Carter Brown Li- brary — Dr. Wriston; Board of Management of the Brown "CAMPUS BOOM" won the prize, and Phil Reisman, Jr. '40, took the bow. He is editorial manager of RKO Pathe, whose documentary film in the series "This Is America" was cited by the American College Public Relations Association at its 30lh anniversary dinner in St. Louis. The award was "for distinguished service in the interpretation of higher education through the the motion picture, for realistic, sympathetic presenta- tion of the problems involved in providing higher edu- cation for the veterans of World War II and for the accurate, faithful and interesting portrayal of the post- war American campus scene."

Western Reserve announced it as a move "into big-time football, playing Rutgers, Brown, and Pitt." "The game with Brown will be the first time an Ivy League school has played a Cleveland team," it noted. Brown will visit Cleveland next winter, however, in basketball, as part of a projected vacation tour during which four Middle West opponents will be faced. President of Providence Mutual ► Percy W. G.ardner '03, Providence attorney, has been elected President of the Providence Mutual Fire Insurance Company, He was formerly Vice-President and Chairman of the Finance Committee of this company, which was in- corporated in 1800. A Baccalaureate by Wasliljurn i ► It w.^s more than a Baccalaureate Sermon which Dr. Ar- thur L. Washburn preached this Commencement Sunday. It was a summation of his life's creed, stated with moving conviction and simplicity on the eve of his retirement as Chaplain of Brown University. His topic was "Incentive for Valorous Living." It was primarily of faith of which he spoke, the highest expression of existence for mankind, its greatest hope for world broth- erhood even in a time of confusion and discouragement. It was secondarily a tribute of a man's tie with Brown Uni- versity, for he said : "Remember, as you go out from our gates, that you never leave Brown. You are ever of her great household and family, for we are eternally united in the common in- heritance of our University's faith in God's power in His world, her faith in the high ideals which she has cherished throughout the years and now entrusts into your sacred keeping." The Seniors had first been admitted into Brown because of her faith in them. That same faith in them would accompany them as they left the known past for the un- known future. "Never," Dr. Washburn said, "can young men and young women meet such a world with more in- terest and self-confidence if they will accept the challenge which recognition of their own assigned place in creation can give them their place in the divine, continuous salva- tion of this world. "We can be willing not to see very far ahead as we go out from this beloved place. We can he sure of the far- reaching importance of present work well done, that when we stand fast those who follow us can see more clearly and progress more confidently because of us. Practice of our faith in ever enlarging service and love of people — such a life works miracles." i 10 BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY ► ► These, Their Gifts to Brown ► ► While the Housing and Development Campaign has held the central position in most alumni minds, the steady flow of benefactions for other Brown University purposes has continued throughout the past year. Public acknowledgment of them was made by President Henry M. Wriston when he appeared before the annual meeting of the Associated Alumni in Sayles Hall on Commencement Day. He announced gifts, apart from the Housing cam- paign, in the amount of $243,201.08. Eagerly awaited was the word on the progress of the big drive. And from National Chairman G. Edward Bu.xton '02 came the rousing news that gifts since the 1946 Com- mencement, totalling $1,831,054, had brought the aggre- gate to the new high of $2,883,078 toward the great objective. (By June 30, further gifts had brought the figure to $2,897,452.) In announcing the year's benefactions, President Wriston revived an old Brown custom, held in abeyance during wartime. There were gifts large and small, but many a small gift became "major" when considered in terms of individual means. As always, interest in the listing was high. This June, as on several past occasions, the alumni were given advance proofs of pages in the Alumni Monthly which enumerated the gifts in a simple listing. Dr. Wriston called attention to some items which invited special com- ment, and expressed the deep gratitude of the University for each benefaction. While slighting no gift, the pro- cedure of publishing the full list of donations served to abridge time materially and profitably in the interests of the meeting. Singled out for special notice was the announcement of more than $20,000 in gifts to the Brown Alumni Fund, a remarkable total in view of the fact that no active campaign had been conducted during the past year. Giving a clear field to the Housing and Development Fund Campaign, the Trustees of the Alumni Fund through Chairman George T. Metcalf T3 took satisfaction in the firmly-fixed custom of annual giving through this medium. (On June •30, this total had risen to $23,800.) Benefactions to the libraries included gifts of several thousand books as memorials to men whose association with University scholarship had been long and influential. There were class gifts, Brown Club scholarships, grants from foundations and corporations in support of research and other projects, — in wide variety. The generosity of many alumni and friends is here reflected in the list of major gifts, grants, and bequests to the University since July 1, 1946: ► For the Brown Alumni Fund, $22,965.36 of which $10,125 was designated for the Alumni Endowment of the Brown Alumni Fund.

Previous contest ints may add to their entry with new com- positions before next May. 1 12 The Big Campaign < ► ► Spurred hy the pre-Commcnct-mcnt drive, alumni and friends of Brown University had eontrihuted $2,8S.i,078 up to June 16 when President Wnston told the annual meeting of the Associated Alumni in Sayles Hall that the year had brought in a total of $1,831,054. Workers, who had come within striking distance of the intermediate ob- jective of $3,000,000 set for Commencement, now turn to their hope of completing their $4,000,000 goal of the Housing and Development Fund in the coming academic year. New quarters in Robinson Hall, the old Economics Building at the corner of Prospect and Waterman Sts., have been established for the balance of the campaign. To see what can he done on the campus when the final amount is pledged and given. Dr. Wriston urged the alumni to visit Whitehall, the new classroom building on Brook St., and Andrews Hall, the new Pembroke dormitory which is scheduled for occupancy next term. Should there be discouragement because the Campaign failed to reach its $3,000,000 objective at Commencement? By no means. President Wriston told the Corporation at its annual meeting: "No one in his right mind expected the task to be easy. It has always been hard. Moreover there is a bright side to the shield : we have done better than most campaigns — far better. We are nearer our goal at this moment than the community expected us to be. WINNERS OF THE BEAR: Burnham, left, and Milner received this high alumni distinction at the Marvel Cyni dinner June 15. Presentation was made by H. Stanton Smith '21, Alumni Vice-President, at right. Citations appear below : ► Lewis Stanley Milner (1902): The promotion of the welfare of your Alma Mater has ever been of major concern to you. Your high sense of loyalty and your unusual capacity for generosity and kind- ness have enabled you to discharge "the offices of Life with usefulness and reputa- tion." As a public-spirited citizen and loyal friend, having many talents and inter- ests, you have made a lasting impress on both the Community and the University. Your excellent services to Brown have con- tributed much to the establishment of prop- er public relations and to a better under- standing of the University's aims and prob- lems. Your time, energy, and means have been employed generously and unselfishly in the cause of Brown. In appreciation of your splendid service we do you honor and present you an Alumni Brown Bear award. ► William Phineas Burnham (1907): With loyalty and great devotion you have given generously- of your time and means in the service of Brown. Your infectious enthusiasm and inspiring leadership compel others to participate in the enjoyment of such service. Wherever Brown men gather your presence is a magnet drawing them closer in affection to their Alma Mater. In the true spirit of Brown University you have served your community and country with honor and distinction. In recognition of your conspicuous services to Brown we are happy to present you an Alumni Brown Bear award, symbolic of the strength and enduring greatness of the Brown you so dearly love. A Holiday Until Sept. 24 Brown's 184th academic year will begin for Freshmen Sept. 15. After registration for all undergraduates Sept. 17-23, classes will start Sept. 24. There is no summer session . 13 BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY We have had large gifts which had not been counted upon." The great need of the Campaign at this juncture is for more workers, he said, recognising that many have worked "with heart and soul." "The cause is right," he concluded. "By persistence and courage we shall succeed." The Corporation passed a resolution expressing deep appreciation of the leadership and achievements of Col. G. Edward Buxton as National Chairman of the drive. During May and June five issues of The Home Stretch provided a stimulus to giving with articles on memorial opportunities still available, on the necessity of housing facilities to meet the great need, the lack of dining facili- ties, the support Brown seeks from the community in return for many services of significance, and classroom and faculty accommodation. An estimate showed that 800 Brown stu- dents are without regular eating facilities, that only a fraction of housing needs are met in spite of congestion and emergency measures that added dormitory space for 400 more than the 900 previously used. Box features de- scribed other "turning points" which had confronted the University in the past, where decisions had led to progress of historic importance. In a May message to his Campaign army, Col. Buxton had, as always, a striking punch-line: "To those who are firmly determined to win this struggle for the benefit of another generation, we say to the bystander, "Give way to the right and let fighting men pass." i ► The Marchers ► ► There were those who said it was the longest Commencement procession ever. And probably they were right. But, unfortunately, no one ever counts the num- ber of those in line, and this year a slight change in routing of the march made it hard to make comparisons. Formed again on the College Green, after last year's temporary shift to the Front Campus, the line moved out to the south, countermarched back past the John Carter Brown and Sayles, swung out through Faunce House archway to Water- man St., returned past the Pump and Hope College, and on between U. H and Manning to the Van Wickle Gates. As tradition commands, the gates swung out. The key had not been lost, although such a contretemps had provided the plot for the 1947 Brownbrokers musical revue. Arthur B. Homer '17, President of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, was Chief Marshal of the procession, on his 30th an- niversary at Brown. Again, however, the man behind the scenes, the Chief of Staff, J. Cunlitfe Bullock '02 arranged the sur- prising amount of detail-work that goes into this simple, sentimental ceremony. It was not only the march down thi.i year, but the march-back took on much more importance since it led to the further ex- ercises on the College Green. Following Paul A. Nickel, Senior class marshal, came alumni by the hundred, es- corting the graduating men and women. And finally, at the end of the long double file came the Seniors, Faculty, guests of honor, members of the Corporation, Chan- cellor Sharpe, President Wriston, Mace- Bearer George E. Downing, and Michael F. Costello "05, high sheriff of Providence County, accoutred with the topper, sash, sword, and full evening dress so necessary for the preservation of decorum.

Three bands, more than ever before, played the familiar ceremonious strains of Wally Reeves" Brown Commencement March. ^ 44 The Best Year of All" t t K ► "Recognizing all the griefs and short- comings, I think this is the best college year I have known since I began to teach 3 5 years ago,"" President Wriston told the Corporation in his annual report, which marked his 10th year at Brown. It was a theme on which he expanded at the Senior Dinner as well. "The students were here by their own choice; by and large they studied harder than usual."" He singled the "Veterans College out for praise: "It has outrun every expectation, in size, in quality, orderliness, and temper. It has attracted wide attention as a drama- tic and effective way to meet the social re- sponsibilities of a university in a metropol- itan center without sacrificing standards or indulging in shoddy pretense. Nearly a third of the members of the Veterans Col- lege did work of such quality that out of a mere fairness we transferred them to the regular college program at mid-year. Some others will be transferred at the end of this year. (More than 100, as it proved, in addition to 139 at the end of the pre- vious semester. — Ed.) Thus those who expected to be held in an indetermined status for two years have by the quality of their work forced our hand." Dr. Wriston also commented in his re- port on the expansion of alumni work: "More time, money, and effort have been devoted to alumni work than ever before in our history," he said. "I have been at- tending alumni meetings for over 25 years. Never in my experience have there been so many evidences of genuine interest in our educational program as this year." iijuujL* THE PRESIDENT'S CAKE: Chairman Quinn applauds, and Charles P. Sisson returns to his seat after making the surprise presentation at the Alumni Dinner. (See page 4.) 14 At the Senior Dinner, the President re- peated his statement that this had been his best year in 3 5. Although it was the most incoherent student body he'd ever known and college spirit was "at a low ebb," phenomena due to war dislocations, all undergraduates were here of their own volition, "eager, clamoring to get here." Moreover, the burden was off the Faculty in many respects, and men were teaching their own subjects again and returned to research they'd laid aside for war assign- ment. They were back to teach "with sin- cerity, enthusiasm, and reality."' They were feeling the squeeze from inflation but were patient and courageous in the face of de- clining endowment income. For all, there was crowding and housing complication. The campaign was hard work, at a time when eight billion dollars was being sought for colleges, churches, and hospitals in the country. Yet, he said deliberately it was a won- derful year — even in the face of world tragedy, a peace thrown away, and the cost of unemployment relief higher than it had been at the depths of the depression, moral recession after the war, political grafting, and great fatigue. "But we haven't yielded. Don't take the world at its face value, keep a fresh outlook, hold to your sanity, cour- age, and faith. And, if in living with yourself you can find peace, then educa- tion is justified. If I had my life to live over, I'd again ask to live on a college campus with those who, for all their faults, are the best students in the world." i Chaplain^s ''Last Chapel" ► ► It was not Dr. Washburn"s "last chapel,"" Dean Arnold pointed out, be- cause he would return again and again to speak to the students at Brown. But it did invite a few recollections of the retir- ing Chaplain of the University. Dean Arnold thought of him in six connections: "1. The night before my wedding when a student stole his doormat, and he re- ported the fact."' "2. His request for a seat in chapel (Tve had few such requests for reserva- tions) For 15 or 20 years he attended chapel regularly and sat in seat N-26. "3. As pastor, friend, and teacher of ethics. After helping the students with their Italian, he came to the decision he would rather be their Chaplain than edu- cate them. "4. The services he conducted in fra- ternity houses during the war when a mem- ber was reported dead in combat or other military service. "5. In Andrews House, a friend to all there. He was at his best as comforter and companion on an ambulance ride, and in meeting parents of students in the Infir- mary, "6. I met him once in Siena. I urge you to look him up if you are ever there."" The informal tribute in Sayles Hall at the last Chapel of the year was serious but with an over-lay of banter. But the under- graduates knew the sentiment which prompted the appreciation, and shared it. They stood to applaud the Chaplain as few have been applauded in that hall which is accustomed to applause. His "God Bless You"' was a benediction they will treasure. BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY On O. E. Rolls ► ► Reputedly the largest employers of college-trained men in industry, the Gen- eral Electric Company lists 69 Brown alumni on its rolls, perhaps the largest con- tingent of Brunonians in any single cor- poration. Only the University itself would seem to rival it in Brown personnel. It is of note that, while the majority are en- gineering graduates, a considerable num- ber hold liberal arts degrees.

At the princi- pal exit from the waiting room of the station stood a man with a Brown Alumni Monthly under his arm. President Wm. Howard Young "16 had hit upon this effective de- vice of identifying himself to the newcomer. ^ NEW YORK CHOSE Robert C. Lilrhfield '23 lo be President of its Brown University Club next year. In Western Maine ► ► Charles C. Chesley '25 is the new- President of the Brown Club of Western Maine, elected at the annual meeting April 21 in Portland's Graymore Hotel. Other officers voted at the dinner are: Vice- President Albert H. Halberstadt "34, Secre- tary Robert F. Skillings "11, and Treasurer Dr. Thomas J. Burrage "98; Executive com- mittee: Percy W. Sarle "16, E. C. Cough- lin, Jr., "42, and Henry D. Burrage '33. Mr. Skillings, veteran secretary of the club, presided. Dr. M. Joseph Twomey "00 spoke in eulogy of Dr. Albert H. Stanton "04, who died last October while serving as club President. Mr. Skillings called on the following to speak informally, telling how they came to be in Maine: A Thomas Scott "28, Edward Heintz "38, assistant librarian at Bowdoin, Frederick Bloom "40. and Halberstadt. Rev. Charles R. Upton "84, senior alumnus present, also greeted the diners. Guest of honor was the Alumni Execu- tive Officer, William B. McCormick "23, who brought the 25 men up to date on College Hill happenings. As usual, the meeting had good publicity, and Newton C. Reed '03 again brought in the slate of nominations, on behalf of Robert J. Curley "07, Mr. Sarle, and himself. Others who took part in the program were Saul H. Sheriff "36, Harold K. Hal- pert "28, R. W. Sarle '44, A. M. Dodge '19, Karl D. Patterson '38. The club can always be counted on for a good turnout and a fine spirit. i Heading It Up Pittsburgh ► Robert B. Clark "39 is at the helm in Pittsburgh for the next year as president of the Brown Club of Western Pennsyl- vania. Serving with him are Vice-President Irving S. Pascal "34, Treasurer Harry K. Voelp. Jr., '29, and Secretary Gordon Ritchie, Jr., "24. All were chosen at the recent annual meeting of the club. i 15 Broivn at the Pops ► > Brown night at the Boston Pops was a gala affair and no mistake. The problem was to get tickets, with a sell-out so early contrived. Those who were lucky lound it a tine musical evening, with partisan ap- preciation of the Brown and Pembroke Glee Clubs and a rousing, roof-raising re- ception of the new Anderson arrangement of songs of Brown, "Brunoniana."" In- vited by the program and by Pops Con- ductor, Arthur Fiedler, the audience joined in singing the familiar songs. The Glee Clubs, conducted by Prof. Ed- ward B. Greene, sang superbly, both as individual units and as one chorus. Their numbers included: Brahms, "Chorus of Homage"" and "The Trysting Place""; three folk songs from "Choralia,"" arranged by Delaney: some Davison arrangements: "At Father's Door,"" "Fireflies,"" and "Soon Ah Will Be Done'"; the finale from "The Gon- doliers,'" and "Alma Mater." The new medley is a highly effective provision for '"When Brunonia's Big Brown Team."" "I'm a Brown Man Born," "We Are Ever True to Brown,"" "Chapel Steps,"" and The Commencement March, the last a surprising but appropriate choice for the climax. Incidentally, the evening made a great New England reunion. The committee un- der Homer W. Clark '07 deserves a world of credit. Plans are already under way to bid for a 1948 date. * The Washington Brown Club ¥ In support of a more active Brown Club program in Washington, D. C, more than 50 Brown men came to the National Press Club for a buffet supper and a wel- come to Dean Samuel T. Arnold "13 on June 25. Win Southworth, Jim Bennett, and Paul Harrison were the moving spirits in setting up the meeting, while Warren Francis, as new president of the National Press Club, saw to it that the alumni had the best of accommodation. The gathering was notable for the large number of younger Brown men who attended, includ- ing delegations from the State Depart- ment, the Naval Research Laboratory, and the Bureau of the Budget. In addition to those previously men- tioned, the Club also heard from former Congressman John 0"Connor and John French, the latter for advice on the con- stitutionality of certain club procedures. Mr. Bennett reported on the Housing and Development Campaign on behalf of Re- gional Vice-Chairman Norman Case and received active support. The Club plans a full schedule of events for next year. Glee Club in Albany ► When the Brown club of Northeast- ern New York presented the Varsity Glee Club in its April 11th concert, the follow- ing served as committee on arrangements: Whitney E.

Gordon Baxter, Robert For- ster, David W. Borst, and Henry N. Lon- ergan. Among those present was Albert H. Hal- berstadt "34, who flew over from Portland, Me., for the concert in Chancellors Hall and the dance at the Hotel Ten Eyck. i BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY The 51st, Poughkeepsie ► ► The Mid-Hudson Brown Club he- came the 51st Brown Club May 15 when W. C. Worthington '23, editor-manager of the Alumni Monthly, visited Pough- keepsie. A strong group had met in- formally earlier in the year and voted to organize. Twenty-five charter members dined at the Smith Brothers Restaurant and revived their Brown memories while hearing further of the campus of today. Salutations came from the New York Brown Club and North Shore (Mass.) Club, holding their annual meetings the same night. A strong slate of officers includes: W. Howard Young "16, President; Raymond Crum "15, Vice-President; Joseph W. Em- sley "24, Secretary-Teasurer. A committee consisting of Harold I. Long "16, Benson R. Frost, Jr., '41, and Robert Golrick "47 was appointed to arrange the fall meeting, while Louis C. Sigloch '40 and H. "Wilson Guernsey "43 will be in charge of a Mid- Hudson trip to the Brown-Yale football game. Others present were: Homer W. Guern- sey "06, Leon F. Clark "10, Henry M. Burke "11, George T. Welch "19. J. Schuy- ler Fox "94, Robert Closs "41, Erskine M. Perry "26, Henry F. Drake 'H, Mark A. Golnck, Jr., '19, Everett L. Sweet '21, C. Carlton Parker "13, Louis Booth '05, Ches- ter H.

Bontecou "17, Harold Grindle '21, Louis Sweeny "15, Burt Titus "38. and W. W. Burbank "37, while a dozen others plan to affiliate in future. Among the towns covered are Pough- keepsie, Wappingers Falls, Rhinebeck, Clinton Corners, Rhinecliff, Lake Mo- honk, Pleasant Valley, Milbrook. The ex- act territory which the lively new group will regard as its sphere of influence is being worked out in co-operation with neighboring clubs and the Alumni Office. In the Merrimack Valley ► A PLEASURABLE and inspiring evening was in store for members of the Merrimack Valley Brown Club when it held its annual meeting in the Peabody House of Phillips Academy, Andover, in May. Guests from the University who were the chief speak- ers were Dean Samuel T. Arnold, Alumni Executive Officer William B. McCormick, and Athletic Director Paul F. Mackesey. Frederick M. Boyce "09 of Andover was elected President for next season, with the following aides: Vice-President — Howard D. Smith of Chelmsford; Secretary-Treas- urer — James S. Eastham of Andover: Ex- ecutive Board — Rufus E. Corlew of Haver- hill, Thomas R. Hadfield of Methuen, Rev. Herman L. Noyes of Lawrence, Everett G. Perkins of Newburyport, and Paul J. Spen- cer of Lowell. Others present, with a score of guests from the student body and Faculty of the Academy, included: Garland B. Russell. Gerald F. Donohue, Abraham J. Meister. James Cantor, Norman L. Duncan, Fran- cis J. Biery, Weston D. Eastman, Kenneth S. Minard, Rev. Byron O. Waterman, Charles R. lovino, Thomas P. Rockwell, Frederic R. Knipe, George W. Langdon, Jr., Paul Kessler, and Ned L. Brody. ^ New York's ISetv Slate ► Robert C. Litchfield "23 is the new President of the Brown University Club in New York, elevated at the annual dinner meeting in the Landon room of the club- house at 39 East 39th St. The other offi- cers are: Vice-President — Frederick H.

Packard "25, Ralph M. Palmer '10, Allen B. Sikes '23, Clifford P. Ladd '18, and Paul D. O'Brien "27. Planning for the new year is under way this summer. ^ Two for the Engineers ► A WEEK APART, two successful meetings of the Brown Engineering Association kept the ball rolling in that lively professional component of the Associated Alumni. In New York on May 16, 3 5 members heard Joseph L. Richey of the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. give a lec- ture demonstration of microwaves and their possible applications to radio and tele- vision. Henry Hallborg "07, President of the Association, was chairman, with his fellow officers Sidney Wilmot and A. M. Impagliaszo with him at the head table. William A. Jewett '41, University Place- ment Director, described the work of this active bureau and told how the new place- ment committee of the Engineering Asso- ciation could operate in conjunction with it. J. T. Connelly, the chairman of the Engineers' committeee, missed the meet- ing, excusably because of commitments as a new father. The following Friday night saw 75 En- gineers enjoying a lobster dinner at the Providence Spring Meeting, held at the AS AN UNDERGRADUATE Thomas F. Gilbane '33 was a champion shotpulter and All-East football center. He is the next chairman of Brown''s important Athletic Advisory Council. 16 Rhode Island Yacht Club. Prof. Leighton T. Bohl presided, with informal remarks from Prof. Zenas Bliss, in charge of ar- rangements, Benjamin Graves '07 of Provi- dence, W. C. Worthington '23 and Ste- phen A. McClellan '23 of New York. These Spring meetings are noted for their lack of set program, their good humor, and their spirited discussions. Newcomers to the Faculty were introduced. ^ Providence Raises Riker > > The ANNUAL dinner and meeting of the Providence Brown Club, held at the Wannamoisett Country Club May 22, ended perhaps the most active and pro- ductive year in the history of the alumni group. It marked the retirement of H. Stanton Smith '21 as President, with J. Wilbur Riker "22, long a leader in the club succeeding him in office. The slate headed by Mr. Riker follows: Vice-President — Mason L. Dunn "35; Treasurer — E. John Lownes, Jr., '23; Secre- tary — Arthur H. Feiner '22; Executive Committee — Vernon Alden '45, Richard A.

Stanton Smith '21, Henry D. Sharpe, Jr., '45, and W. C. Worthington '23. Other speakers at the annual dinner were Dean Robert W. Kenny and Prof. W. E. S. Moulton. The athletic coaches were included in the dinner company, with the new basketball coach. Bob Morris, rep- resenting them at the head table. The President-elect said the Club had only one axe to grind — support of Brown University. It believed in being a good rooter, in telling the public about the good things on College Hill, and in building morale through help and recognition. A brochure reporting on the year's activities recorded their extent and quality, as pre- viously noted in these pages. ^ Planning Time in Chicago ► New officers of the Chicago Brown Club are planning next year's program during the summer months under the lead- ership of Homer R. Faulkner '23, Presi- dent. Installed with him at the annual meeting March 27 during the Continental Hotel banquet were Vice-President — James R. Bremner '34; Treasurer — George Rich III '44; and Secretary — Frederick P. Bas- sett, Jr., '3 3. Among the projects are the issuing of the Club's first postwar directory and resumption of the famous and useful periodical Brown Derby, published "at very odd intervals" but setting a high standard for such "house organs."" Invitation from Canton > It was THE FIRST real post-war get- together for all Brown men in Northern Ohio, and the turnout at the Congress Lake Country Club April 30 was fine. Within easy access of Canton, Akron, Youngstown, and Cleveland, the meeting drew good dele- gations from each center. There was golf, bridge, and general sociability, and at din- nertime Athletic Director Paul Mackesey brought reports fresh from the Hill. The committee on arrangements was Hal Broda, Lefty Ostergard, and Sammy Dreyer, for the sponsoring Brown Club of Canton. ^ BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY A Money-Raising Idea ► Seeking to bolster its scholar- ship fund, the North Shore Brown Club in Massachusetts hit upon a novel and effective scheme. It spon- sored a series of six motion picture programs, shown exclusively for children, at the Warwick Theatre in Marblehead. Films were selected with the young audience in mind, with educational purposes stressed as well as entertainment. The profits were $250 for the club. Elmer P. Wright, president of the North Shore Club, writes that the executive committee hopes to intro- duce similar movie programs for chil- dren in one or two other communi- ties in the territory, next year. i "THE REUNION OF REUNIONS" in Marvel GjTiinasiuin the night before Coninjencenient. The photograph taken from the running track shows niueh of the crowd of more than 600 diners. Hartford Picks Henshaw > Wallace H. Hensha\\' '23 was elected President of the Hartford Brown Club at its annual meeting May 22, succeeding Robert Allison "29, who has done an out- standing job for the past two years. Other officers chosen were: Vice-President — Richard P. Eldridge '31; Secretary — Cyrus G. Flanders "18; Treasurer — Marion B. Denison '83; Assistant Treasurer — Rev. Edwin H. Tuller '3 5. The nominating committee: Past President Paul Monahan '31, chairman, Jesse Bailey '16, and Flan- ders. Athletic Director Paul Mackesey spoke in straightforward manner about the prob- lems faced in his field. He gave great tribute to Wally Snell and might have given himself credit for his own good work. The group liked him immensely and feels Brown's athletic program for the future is in excellent hands. William B. McCormick '23, Alumni Ex- ecutive Officer, sold the Alumni Reor- ganization Plan lock, stock and barrel. It was most gratifying to hear the lively par- ticipation, evidence of a lively interest in Brown here in Hartford. Those who attended included: Bill Bie- luch '39, Ray Gallant 'KS, Dan Howard '93. Arnold MacDonald '39. Walter Rolland '22, Larry Smith "20, Stuart Tinkham '23, Ken Wright '38, Jarvis Alger '43, John Balmer '34, Dick Brainard '46, Bob John- son '3 7, Andy Jack '36, Bob Klie '44, Bert Howard '28, Constant Kulig '45, Frank Jones "97, Joe Lombardo "43, Fred Lougee "21, Abner Newton '23, Joe Stookins '34, Avery Tanner '43, and Don Tanner "35. i Mackesey in Philly ► Philadelphia welcomed Athletic Di- rector Paul Mackesey to its May 13 lunch- eon at the University Club, with a score of alumni getting his good story on Brown athletics.

Plainfield Aids the Plan ► Impetlis was given to the new alumni organization plan, proposed by Dr. M. L. Crossley, by a gathering ot 39 Brown men of North Central New Jersey on May 8th at the Park Hotel, Plainfield, N. J. A din- ner preceded the meeting which was spon- sored by the Plainfield Area Section of Brown Alumni, organized in October, 1946. and the officers of which are Edwin B. Havens "28, president, E. Bruce Wetzel "29, treasurer and Joseph K. Burwell "13, secretary. The meeting was arranged by those officers and Stanley M. Banfield "13 and Alexander Logan "42. The purpose of the meeting was to cre- ate interest in and give information about the new alumni organization plan so that the various proposed sections and groups represented can proceed with their organ- ization. The area covered was a radius of about 20 miles of Plainfield and representa- tives attended from Plainfield, Maplewood, West Orange, Metuchen, Irvington, East 17 Orange, Westfield, Rahway, Newark, Cald- well, Orange, West Caldwell, Bloomfield, Verona, Morristown, Millburn, Somerville, South Plainfield and Arlington. Guests were Dr. Bruce M. Bigelow, Vice- President of Brown University, Dr. M. L. Crossley, President of the Associated Alumni and Paul Mackesey, Director of Athletics. Harold W. Lord, President of the Northern New Jersey Brown Club, was unable to be present for business reasons on account of the telephone strike. Dr. Crossley explained the new alumni organization plan and urged the various sections and groups to organize so that Brown can have an active alumni organiza- tion started this year. i Fete for Fay ► Edward M. Fay, Providence theatre man and former orchestra leader, is well known to many a Brown alumnus. He marked his 50th anniversary in the enter- tainment business April 21 with many a notable singing his praises at a testimonial dinner, sponsored by the Independent Ex- hibitors of Rhode Island. State and city officials were speakers, to- gether with presidents and vice-presidents ot most of the major film production com panies, and Basil 0"Connor, chairman of the American Red Cross and president of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, Prof. Ben W. Brown "19 was spokesman for the University, while Judge Ira Lloyd Letts "13 was toastmaster. A special train brought the moving pic- ture officials from New York to join the 600 other diners. < Anyone Find a Watch? ► Somewhere between the grounds of the First Baptist Meeting House and the Brown campus, Florica H. Cicma of 63 Angell St., Providence, lost a highly valued lapel watch on Commencement Day. Two leaves attached to the sides give a winged effect. A liberal reward is offered, including re- payment of any costs involved in the re- turn. As a family present, the watch has great sentimental associations. ^ BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY For Brown Bookshelves "Alexander the Great" ► ► No NEW HERO is being introduced to what will be a large audience for "Alex- ander the Great," a splendid new biography by Prof. Charles Alexander Robinson, Jr., of Brown University's Classics Department. No new wonder is expressed at the fabulous adventure of world conquest and world organization, for all the fresh excitement that the reader shares in the exploit. But, with no comparable work in the field for 50 years by an American author, there is a new perspective which would be sufficient justi- fication in itself, apart from all other merits — which are many. One of Prof. Robinson's major purposes in writing this delightful book is to bring to the reputation of Alexander full credit for a revolutionary concept — the idea of the brotherhood of man under the" father- hood of God, the idea of the citizenship all men could achieve in common in a single world. Without over-emphasis, the presen- tation of this thesis is convincing, and illus- trative evidence is abundant. It is ambitious, of course, to try to read the mind of a man who lived so fully so long ago. But the record is there, and Prof. Robinson is familiar with it, as his previ- ously published studies attest. He is known to be the foremost authority on Alexander in America — Prof. John Spaeth of Wesley- an so speaks of him, for one. And here is the synthesis of his earlier inquiry, weighing of conflicting testimony, and his resolved thought. He gives a plausibility and con- sistency to a life always recognized as great (as the familiar form of Alexander's name shows). But it has been a life of such extraordinary scope and variety that hereto- fore it has somehow been hard to compre- hend, hard to remove from romancing. Like most readers, this one is without scholarly background on which to draw. But as a reader he has had deep pleasure from this book, from its straightforward, swift narrative in a setting and time made real. A leader, younger than some of our Brown undergraduates today, becomes a figure of immense attraction in a yarn of action, peril, and success. Prof. Robinson's stu- dents and friends know him to be a man of large enthusiasms, which others catch from him. The reader comes upon that same sense of delight and inspiration on most readable pages. It is a charming and provo- cative book, commended for all. In 1948 Prof. Robinson returns to Athens as Annual Professor at the Amer- ican School of Classical Studies, where he, a Prix de Rome winner, studied for two years and later taught as Visiting Professor. He is a Fellow of the American Numismatic Society, whose members, limited to 150 persons in the world, own the greatest of coin collections in this hemisphere. Under his leadership, the Amateurs of Ancient Greece have had amazing vitality and fol- lowing. Incidentally, most of the administration of the Athens School is concentrated at Brown. Prof. Robinson is one of those in charge of policy. A Brown graduate is paying for the School's excavations in the Athenian Agora, the greatest project of its kind in history, in which Prof. Robinson has participated. Until this winter he has been chairman of the Alumni Association of the School and had so served since its founding. He is one of two persons respon- sible for the operations under a $100,000 < M ROBERT CUSHMAN MURPHY '11: Grace notes in a logbook. budget, including a publication of $30,000 worth of books annually but apart from the $75,000 spent each year on the Agora ex- ploration. All members of the Classics De- partment at Brown, however, participate actively in the councils of the school, and one carries out virtually all of the routine work connected with it. William T. Aldrich "00 is architect of the new Agora Museum. Former students elsewhere enhance the prestige of this strong Brown Department in the eyes of the scholarly world. Some day this magazine hopes to tell that whole story. The purpose of this notice, however, is to call attention to a new work of import- ance and general interest, commended even for summer reading, without reservation. (The publisher is Dutton: the price $3.75; and, quite apart from its content, the book is happily designed and well made. It was on sale in Providence a week before its national distribution.) Brunonians With Eastman ► The Eastman Kodak Company of Rochester, N. Y., reports the following Brown men working for them, all products of the Graduate School: Fred Holland, Master of Science in Physics in 1943, Woodrow Johnson, Doctor of Philosophy in Physics in 1941, T. Doman Roberts, Master of Science in Physics in 1946, and Andrew Whitehead, Master of Science in Chemistry in 1943. ^ Their Cheering Section ► Dean Samuel T. Arnold en- countered something new when he attended the dinner which the wrestling squad arranged in compli- ment to its popular coach, Ralph Anderton '30. When the Dean ar- rived, he was a little surprised to find some attractive young girls among the diners. "Who are they?" he asked when he had a chance to put the question to one of the varsity men. "Oh," said the latter, "they are the wives of the wrestlers." i "The Island War" BY DEAN ROBERT W. KENNY '24 ► ► Frank Hough of the Class of 1924 has spent a large part of his life either lighting or writing about wars. When he appeared on the Brown campus in the fall of 1920, Frank had behind him some very rough months of fighting with the Marine Brigade in France from which he emerged the youngest sergeant in the Corps. Drop- ping his .03 Springfield in favor of the pen, he turned out short stories for Case- ments and at least one original play which was produced by Sock and Buskin on the rickety stage of Rockefeller Hall, Faunce House, to you young chaps. It is rumored that he had a hand in the script of the last and most famous of the St. Patrick's Day Minstrels of yesteryear. Since graduation, Frank has been a free lance writer and has to his credit three novels of the American Revolution; Renown, If ?\Iot Victory, and The Neutral Ground, the latter a national best seller. To the chagrin of his publishers, Frank could not remain in his ivory tower writ- ing about past wars when his old outfit was heavily committed in World War II. He started this tour of duty as a captain and ended as Major Hough. Out of his year and a half overseas with the First Marine Division, and many months of pouring over historical records section of the Marine Corps archives in Washington, Frank has written The island War: The United States Marine Corps in the Pacific. The Island War is not the official history of the Corps; that will be years in the mak- ing, but it is an accurate, vivid, fair, and handsomely illustrated account of the grim battles which have become bywords of our military history. Individual exploits, com- monly called Joe Blow stories, have no part in this book, unless the heroic act had definite bearing upon the tactical situation. What is here in abundance is the history of units as they fought at Guadalcanal, Tinian, Saipan, Guam, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. How these bloody actions fitted into the large strategic picture, and hsw the marines adapted their tactics to cope with the Jap in the jungle, on coral atolls or the volcanic escarpments of Iwo is told here laid on the line. In addition, there is a fund of pithy comment upon Jap tactics and technics leading to the as- sumption that the Jap was a very brave fighter but also upon many occasions a very dumb one. Major Hough is imbued, as are all ma- rines, with the espirit de corps of his out- fit. The reasons for that espirit are made clear when he writes: "This is not the story of individual men, but of a certain large body of men bound together by the closest of all masculine ties: that comrade- ship born of the shared peril and hardship of battle." The Island War tells effectively what the Marines did and shows why they are so justifiably proud of their outfit. With all this pride it is only fair to point out that the marines are not glorified at the expense of the other services, for The Island War transcends mere corps loyalty and is exciting reading for all. Frank, we understand, has moved to Florida; whether he has fallen in love with palm trees or is hiding in the Okefenokee Swamp is unknown, but from his retreat will shortly come other books, whether of this war or the Revolution we do not know. ^ 18 BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY Murphy's Log i ► ► It was the chance of a lifetime for a young naturalist just out of college, and Robert Cushman Murphy "11 jumped at it. His jump took him aboard the Brig Daisy, an oldtime New Bedford whaler, bound from Barbados in general toward South Georgia, an island of blizzards and glaciers, sea-beasts and sea-fowl, the pi- oneer base of Antarctic whaling. He poured his thoughts and emotions into a journal for the bride he left behind. Now, 3 5 years later, with his renown as a scientist firmly established. Dr. Mur- phy publishes much of that report in "Log- book for Grace," one of the season's most acclaimed books (Macmillan, $4.) Murphy's errand was the collection and describing wild life and plant life. But adventure inevitably was his companion, along with a ship's company of interest to him. He shared in the sea chores, and his entries record them all, from the routine trick at the wheel to the nine-hour battle with a fighting whale. The writing has style, substance, and humanity, recreating, sharing. Occasionally, a Brown man encounters particular bits of heart-warming pleasure. Down near the Horn, for instance. Mur- phy took from the letter bag "a most win- ning epistle from John Francis Green, Pro- fessor of Roman Literature and History at Brown," written six months before. That letter, obviously, has been treasured through the years: "Naturally, when I think of a former pupil like yourself, I often recall the sub- jects we thrashed out together — Horace, for example. You certainly are going to have a chance to prove the philosophy of the Integer vitae. Sing of your Lalage, and the brutes will flee you, though per- haps you would rather catch 'em. At any rate, you will have the scenic background . . . either the sunscorched tropics of the polar fields where there are no trees re- freshed by summer's breeze." Dr. Murphy's comment: "I realize that the day of the classical languages is wan- ing, and that there are new humanities which will make it impracticable for the average educated man of the future to dig into Greek or Latin, or both, for from four to six long years. But I'm glad that I hved before the end of the transition, because the apogee of my college course, for sheer fun, came when I faced the in- spired countenance of Johnny Green and read Horace, Catullus, TibuUus, and Prop- ertius. I have Horace with me but, in any case, I know by heart many of the lyrics. Now that we have left the region of the too near sun and are drawing nigh one o'er which brood mists and a gloomy sky, I "can still walk the quarterdeck with The Graduate Convocation ► > As THE separate Convocation for the Brown Graduate School was revived for the first time since 1941, the University awarded advanced degrees to 48 graduate students — 1 5 doctorates and 3 3 master's degrees. The Convocation was held Sat- urday afternoon of Commencement week- end, preceded by an academic procession to Sayles Hall. The graduates heard a "Survey of the Sciences" from Dean Richard Chace Tol- man of California Institute of Technology, former scientific advisor to the Atomic En- ergy Commission. Pointing out that sci- ence is neither good nor evil in itself. Dr. Tolman showed it was the application by man which gave it its nature. "In pure science, facts are ethically neutral." Keeping certain facts secret, like those BEFORE THE CONVOCATION: Dean Richard C. Tolman of Cal- Tech, speaker, and Dean R. G. D. Richardson of Brown's Graduate School. on atomic energy, can be important for the time being, the speaker said. But such an expedient can make no fundamental contribution to the control of evil, since the facts of nature are open equally to all men for study. The control of evil will be possible through the ethical insight and scientific intelligence of man. To Dean Roland G. D. Richardson, who presented the candidates of his Graduate School for the degrees. Dr. Tolman paid a special compliment. He spoke of the Dean's "sagacity and ability in fostering the establishment of Brown Uriiversity's Institute of Applied Mathematics." ^ 19 my Lalage and sing, under my breath, to her alone." The dirty weather near Cape Horn Mur- phy likened to "spending a few February days and nights on Angell St., Provi- dence." "Even such a conception falls short," he adds, "because it is at least safe to stand up on Angell Street, but here it is a struggle to maintain any position what- soever, not excluding a horizontal one." ► It was quite a pull getting from one hemisphere into the other during a con- trasting period of calm. "I found myself obsessed by the crossing of imaginary lines, about five yards apart, and my fancy car- ried me back to football games that you and I have watched together during the past three years. Can we cross the goal in today's game? I kept asking myself over and over again, finally drifting off into reverie. "Sprackling has sent the ball down the field on two forward passes to the seven- yard line. Two rushes through left guard have gained five yards, and now it is sec- ond down, with 45 seconds of the game left to play, and the score 0-0. The thrill- ing numbers are called; the Podunk for- ward wall stands firm as a rock to stave off defeat. Charlie Sisson snaps the pig- skin, and Sprack slams it into the pit of Russ McKay's stomach, who plunges for- ward like a battering ram into the hole my brother Ed is making. . . ." "Logbook for Grace" has had a fine press. William McFee said in the T^ew forX Sun that, with a little luck, it "might join Dana on the shelf of permanent travel classics . . . Something should be done about keeping it in print and steering it toward the young people." Lewis Gan- nett, in the Hew Tor\ Herald Tribune, called it "a book to set on the shelf be- side 'Moby Dick' and 'Two Years Before the Mast.' " ► Dr. Murphy, Chairman of the Depart- ment of Birds at The American Museum of Natural History, New York, and dis- tinguished ornithologist, is author of "Bird Islands of Peru" and "Oceanic Birds of South America." He also collaborated on "Problems of Polar Research." In addi- tion, he has contributed numerous articles on marine zoology, ornithology and ocean- ography. His scientific interest in birds and mammals started when he dissected a two weeks-dead whale on Long Island shore — long before he entered college. The roundabout trip to South Georgia was the beginning of Dr. Murphy's bril- liant career as an ornithologist. He not only made several other voyages, but was the leader for expeditions into the tropical and sub-arctic Atlantic Ocean, Lower California, Mexico, the coast and island of Peru, the western Mediterranean, Pacific Coast of Colombia and to Peru and Ecua- dor. All these trips were made in behalf of the Brooklyn Museum and The American Museum of Natural History as well as the American Geological Society. In 1918 Dr. Murphy received his A.M. from Columbia University, and in 1925 the University of San Marcos in Lima, Peru, awarded him his D. Sc, honoris causa. Brown University also conferred on him a similar degree in 1941. Among the several awards that Dr. Murphy has re- ceived for his contributions to science are the Brewster Medal, Bronze Medal and the Cullum Medal. They were presented to him respectively by the American Orni- thology Union, John Burroughs Associa- tion and the American Geological Society. BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY Headliners < Wellesley's Word for Mead ► > Wellesley, too. had its tribute for Dr. Albert Davis Mead. Its Board of Trustees adopted a minute in recognition of his services as a member from 1934 to 1945: "He had unique qualifications for usefulners." "He was the husband of a loyal Welles- ley alumna, Ada Wing of the Class of 1886. He was a scientist of distinction, with a keen understanding of the teaching role in the college and in American society. He was . . . fully aware of an adminis- trator's problems. The versatility of un- derstanding was combined with a genial wit which made him a refreshing member of the Committee on Educational Policy on which he served throughout his term of office. He also served faithfully and well (the Library Council). "Because of failing eye-sight. Dr. Mead resigned from the Board in May, 194'?. That did not sever his connection with the College. . . . His letters in recent years had to he dictated and were written for him by Mrs. Mead until her death in May, 1946. They were characteristic of him in their encouragement to and appreciation of any- thing which vitalized the intellectual life of the College." The services in his memory at Brown on Feb. 21 were marked by splendid trib- utes from his associates at Brown and else- where in Providence. The University is publishing their words in a special pamph- let which will be available on request. i Honored by His Race ► Bracketing his name with those of Dr. George Washington Carver and Percy Levon Juhan among the Negro leaders in chemistry. School and Society magazine pays tribute to Bruce Henry Green '02. Clarence W. Wright wrote: "There appeared on the scientific horizon toward the latter part of the 19th century one destined to he a great teacher of science. Although he did not make any great discoveries in science, he possessed a natural gift for imparting knowledge and unfolding to others the beauty of nature." A professor of chemistry at Wilberforce University for more than a quarter of a century (until his death in 1937), Mr. Green consecrated his life "to the develop- ment of race leadership in chemistry and the bringing about of needed improvements in the teaching of chemistry. An appropriate way in which to keep alive the spirit of one who gave so unself- ishly to the training of youth in chemistry would be to name in his honor a public building or perhaps a laboratory in the proposed Faith Hall of Science to be con- structed at Wilberforce." i Back to His Hometown ► His war rovinos on behalf of USO over, Hugh Rennie '23 particularly enjoyed his work in "Craig's Wife" this winter be- cause his wife, Dorsa Duckworth, also had a part in the Broadway revival. In addi- tion to playing Joseph Catelle, Rennie was stage manager. "This is not new work for Mr. Rennie," remarked Helen Barrett of the Wilming- ton, Del., Journal-Every Evening when the show played there in February trials. "He served in a similar capacity for the long run of 'Arsenic and Old Lace.' As an actor, Mr. Rennie has 'Goodbye Again,' 'You Can't Take It with You,' and 'Fam- ily Portrait' to his credit, and as manager TWO PRESIDENTS: Harry Truman returned the compliment to Warren B. Francis '29 by attending the lattcr's inauguration as President — of the National Press Club. Greatest organization of its kind in the world, the Washington club has a large membership, a half-niillion-dollar property, and activity. Francis, correspondent of the Los .4ngeles Times, is first West Coaster to be NPC President in 24 years. (Acme Photo) and director spent a period overseas with the USO in New Guinea and the Philip- pines. (He presented the first group of shows in Manila after the recapture of the islands.)" He has directed summer theatres at Pompton Lakes, Cape May, and elsewhere, and he has played in supporting casts of such stars as the Lunts, Katharine Cornell, and Blanche Yurka. The home-town col- umnist recalled his fine performance in the title role of "Monsieur Beaucaire" as a Wilmington High School student and re- ferred to his Sock and Buskin days at Brown. Like her husband, Miss Duckworth has been connected with the Theatre Guild and played in a large number of hits and near-hits. ^ Phi Betes Elect Branch ► Claude R. Branch '07 is the new Pres- ident of the Rhode Island Alpha of Phi Beta Kappa, chosen to succeed Prof. R. Bruce Lindsay '20 at the annual meeting of the chapter June 14. Other officers elected are: Vice-President — Prof. James B. Hedges; Secretary — Prof. William T. Hastings '03; Treasurer — Ronald B. Smith '23; Historian — Prof. Lawrence C. Wroth; Auditor — George L. Miner "97. Roger T, Clapp 19 was chairman of the nominating committee which brought in the slate. After the meeting 12 Brown and Pem- broke Seniors and three Juniors were ini- tiated and were guests at lunch. Prof. Vin- cent Tomas being the principal speaker. ^ 20 Japan's I\eiv Destiny > Japan now believes its destiny linked with the United States, but Russia is en- gaged in an extravagant attempt to win — or force Japan's approval, in the opinion of Lt. Col. John F. Aiso '31. The Los An- geles Times further quotes him as saying he believes withdrawal of American occupa- tion forces would spark a scramble for the domination of Nippon by the other powers. Aiso, who was a banker in Japan before the war, served for more than a year in the intelligence staff section of General MacArthur's Tokyo headquarters. He en- listed in the American Army as a buck private in April, 1941, and rose to hold the highest rank ever held by a Nisei. As director of academic training at the Mili- tary Intelligence Service Language School at the Presidio of San Francisco, Camp Savage, and Fort Snelling, he supervised the indoctrination and training of nearly 6000 intelligence men. Some 60'/p of these were Japanese-Americans who served with the Americans in the Pacific. He wears the Army Commendation Ribbon with Oak Leaf Cluster for his work at the intelligence school and in Tokyo. He plans to return to law practice in Los An- geles. "General MacArthur is doing an admir- able job," Aiso said in the Times interview, "but it will take at least 20 years to demo- cratize Japan — time enough for the educa- tion of one complete generation. The Japanese themselves want us to remain as long as possible." ^ History Near Home ► ► "A Nhw Approach to Local Busi- ness History" by Leon S. Gay "06 has cre- ated quite a stir in historical circles. Orig- inally presented before the American His- tiirical Association in New York last win- ter, it has now been printed by the Busi- ness Historical Society (Harvard) in its Bulletin. Mr. Gay came to Providence to give a paper on the subject before the R. L Historical Society in March. The Cavendish manufacturer who is also President of the Vermont Historical So- ciety (re-elected in January) practised what he preached. He believed that economic history would never he understood with- out more information about the small busi- ness man. Also, when the 75th anniversary of his company was approaching, he sought to have an accurate history of it written and "in addition, a study of the social and eco- nomic background" of the community. The result was the now-famous "Neither Wealth Nor Poverty" by Janet Mabie, published with the imprint of the Vermont Historical Society — the first work of its kind so to be sponsored in America, apparently. It was based on original records, to which the writer was given unrestricted access. The title of the book was taken from Mr. Gay's remarks as presiding officer at Brown's 1941 Commencement meeting: "We have neither wealth nor poverty, but in these times when the foundation stones of Liberty and Justice are being shattered, we feel Vermont has a way of life to olTer, to her Sister States and to the world." The book attacked two conceptions: "that an historical society is a collection of elderly people living in the past, dreaming about a dry and musty world which has no relation to present day problems; and that business, while a necessary part of the pro- duction front, is a shady institution which thrives on secrecy, with no sense of obliga- tion to the public which makes its profits possible." Seeking to enlarge upon his idea, Mr. Gay suggested to the New Eng- land Council that other State societies be encouraged to delve into local business history — a proposal followed up with a group formed to watch over this project. Mr. Gay was elected in May to take the place of the late Dr. A. D. Mead as a Life Trustee of Middlebury College. On one of his visits to that campus he shared in a panel discussion as a member of the Middlebury Cultural Conference, taking the part of Business and Private Enterprise in a debate with nine professors. Mr. Gay has just been appointed a member of the taxation committee of the National Asso- ciation of Manufacturers. i Stigler Confers Abroad ¥ Dr. George J. Stigler, professor of economics at Brown University and one of the country's leading economic theorists, is back from Europe after attending a 10- day conference of economists of the so- called "uld-fashioned" liberal school at Montpelerin, Switzerland. Stigler was one of 30 representatives from the United States attending the conference along with other delegates from throughout the world. The purpose of the meeting, held in ac- cordance with a plan proposed by Fred- erick Hayek, author of "Road to Serfdom," was to explore the desirability of organiz- ing a society of economists who are in sympathy with the classical liberal view- point of the 19th century. Such an or- ganization would formulate a program de- signed to reaffirm the economic philosophy of the classical liberal based on the mainte- nance of individual liberty in economic lite as contrasted with the idea of a planned economy. Professor Stigler, author of numerous books and articles on economic theory, was appointed to the Brown faculty in March, 1946, as a full professor. He has also been a member of the faculties at Iowa State University and at the Universities of Chicago, Michigan and Minnesota. Dur- ing World War II, Dr. Stigler served on the Research Staff of the National Bureau of Economic Research, as "principal econ- omist for the Office of Price Administra- tion and as principal statistician in the Division of War Research. ^ Samson of the IJISRRA ► ► A COPY of the Canton Daily Sun reached us from China recently, although it was dated Jan. 21. Its principal news — for u.s — was the following item: "Henry T. Samson, newly appointed UNRRA Chief Representative for Kwang- tung, arrived in China yesterday. Mr. Samson served as Head of the Division of Regional Administration in the UNRRA China Office. In this capacity he analyzed the UNRRA CNRRA programs in the 15 China regions and made recom- mendations to the Director of the China Office, Maj. Glen E. Edgerton, for pro- gram changes and extensions of the pro- grams within the regions. Mr. Samson also formerly served as Chief Welfare Of- ficer for Hunan Province, advising on wel- fare operations there during the critical famine period last summer. Mr. Samson's UNRRA experience includes service in Greece, Germany, and as chief of the Luxembourg Mission during 'The Battle of the Bulge" period." The Sun was something new in our con- tacts with journalism, our interest also being caught by the price (C.N.C. $100) and a gossip column by Lotof Hui. About the same time a letter from Mr. Samson informed us he would be in charge of the UNRRA South China Office in Canton until September — "a fascinating job." "The next six months," he said. BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY "should tell the story in China one way or the other — and anybody's guess is worth listening to, providing you remem- ber that at best it can be only a guess. The outcome is unpredictable but not without hope either way." Samson, with compliments for this maga' zine, also revealed his intention to make gifts to the Housing and Development Campaign and the Alumni Fund in mem' ory of his brother, Seneca (Brown 1921), his son Jim, killed on the beach at Saipan with the Fourth Marines, and himself. < Zeta Psi's 95th > Zeta Psi observed the 95th anniversary of Epsilon Chapter at Brown at the Uni- versity Club in Providence in April. Speakers included: John Desmond Glover '36 of the Harvard Business school faculty and consulting expert to the Assistant Sec- retary of War for Air; Clinton N. Wil- liams '31, chairman of the banquet com- mittee; Bennett B. Fuller '45, chapter presi- dent- and Cresap S. Watson '50, initiate. Lt. George W. Williams "42, White House Naval aide, was toastmaster. The Zeta Psi Association of Rhode Island elected the following officers: Presi- dent—William A. Jewett "41, director ot the Placement Bureau at Brown: Vice- President— C. Woodbury Gorman; Secre- tary — E. Sheldon Knowles; Treasurer — Don C. Brewer. $140,000 for Graduate Students > The sum of $140,000 for fellowships and positions as assistants at Brown Uni- versity is available for the academic year of 1947-1948, Dr. Roland G. D. Richard- son, Dean of the Graduate School, an- nounces. Included are teaching fellowships of $1250 to $1500; 40 fellowships of $600 to $1200 for study in the sciences and liberal arts, and research fellowships for Brown graduates. Stipends of. $800 to $1200 are offered in a number of depart- ments for 80 assistantships. The Registrar of the Graduate School will be glad to provide full information. Lifted from Our Letters Sir: Somewhere I read "You can lead a boy to college, but you can't make him think." Somebody has to do a little thinking and planning. Here are a few thoughts: Every college or university is just what the alumni make it. The alumni and friends make it possible for Brown to carry on. At the end of his course every alumnus is indebted to Brown. Brown uses money and equipment, much more than the in- dividual pays, to give opportunity to pre- pare to play the game of life. Each one has to hve his own life in his own way — nobody can live it for him. He may call it a bond issued by Brown to pay the extra cost. The alumnus may give something to the Alumni Fund annually which can be considered interest on the bond. Now we come to a time when it seems best to see to it that Brown continues to be "way out in front, carrying on the best kind of education for future generations. Think It over. We are passing this way but once and can take nothing with us. Let's co-operate and squeeze out all we can now in the present time, which is all we know anything about. 21 Mother Brown did much for us, and now it is our turn to join together and make every effort to help Brown continue the kind of education which will be most beneficial to those coming after us. Harry L. Grant "90 Providence Recently when I was en route from Phila- delphia to New York, I sat beside a doctor, a graduate some ten years ago from George- town University Medical School. In the conversation he asked me from what col- lege I had graduated. When I told him BROWN, he instantly exclaimed, "That is where Charles Evans Hughes graduated."' It was not a particular professor or half dozen professors, or any one department that made Brown loom high in this doctor"s mind. It was a man — our highly esteemed Charles Evans Hughes. In this case a man is greater than an in- stitution. Arthur Wakefield "00 Wyncote, Pa. * * ^^ Have noticed Brown is getting better and more publicity lately. C. C.

He Hawaiian Chronicle ► George McKinley McClellan '95 has been in Honolulu to do some research for a volume on the early history of Hawaii which he has been commissioned to write. He was a logical choice for the task inasmuch as he played a lively role in the de- velopment of Hawaii through its most crucial period. He is spoken of as "one of the comparatively few men living today who was personally associated with those responsible for overthrowing the old Hawaiian monarchy, setting up the RepuWic of Hawaii, and turning that into the Territory of Hawaii." ^ B.

Its something you'd as soon give away — on a come- and'get-it basis. When Charles Leslie Paull "97 came back for his 50th reunion, he brought a clipping of a gravure feature from the Denver Post for Sept. 29, 1946, docu- menting his encounter with a bear in his hencoop near Englewood, Colo. As it happened, the hencoop was unoccupied and abandoned, and it provided only a trap, for Paull shut the door on the animal. With the help of the State humane society, the county sheriff, and the superintendent ot the Denver Zoo, Paull rigged a noose on the end of a stout pole. Hogtying the 120-pound youngster followed, and Bruno moved into the :oo in Denver City Park. Mr. Paull brought a number of Brown souvenirs which the University Archivist gratefully accepted. They included an acorn carved from a beam from Uni- versity Hall in 1883 (turning oak back into acorn was a neat switch), a copy of the resolution signed by President Andrews and the four class presidents when Paull went off to the Spanish War, and photos of Profs. Bumpus, Mead, Gorham, Tower, and Field of the Biology Department, taken in their offices during Paull's undergraduate years. A veteran of the Spanish and First World Wars, Mr. Paull worked in an ammunition factory during the recent war. i tude coupled with his sagacity in business and finance and his tactful and persuasive manner succeeded in winning the coopera- tion of business firms in achieving fair and sound renegotiation settlements."

Hull put it up to the members of the class in a letter that went to all in May. "At our 45th reunion last June, some sentiment was manifest for our next reunion in June, 1949, rather than wait for the regular fifth-year date in 1951," he reported. "As you must realize, we are not getting any younger each year. We would like very much to have your views on holding a reunion in 1949." At the 13th annual session of the Insti- tute of World Affairs to be held at Warner, N. H. next August, Dr. Arthur I. Andrews will teach a course on "The Background of Mediterranean Problems."

Ehmke- had been ill for some time, word of his death came as a < < A Chance for All ► Brown University's project to give a college chance to veterans who had been disqualified theoretically by low high school grades or lack of credits from admission to other schools merits thoughtful study. Brown set up a special project for such veterans in its area — on an experimental basis and somewhat pessimistically — with the expectation of shifting a select few after two years to the established college. Actu- ally these mature GI students, who lacked the accepted educational background for college entrance, have demonstrated such remarkable capacity that one-third of them have already been transferred. Fifty per- cent stand as high in scholarship, or higher, than 75 percent of the "highly qualified" regular college students. With so many colleges arbitrarily rais- ing their admission "standards," these re- sults are important. They throw doubt on the whole philosophy behind college ad- missions and indicate that a large propor- tion of the Nation's best talent is being lost and many capable and deserving veterans are being unjustly shut out of the colleges. The Brown experiment ought to be con- sidered carefully by the Veterans' Admin- istration, by educators and by other public leaders with a view to making it a nation- wide program. ^ — Philadelphia hiquuer 24 Again, the Veterans ► Brown university'.s widely-publici:ed Veterans College has again proved itself to be more than an uncertain educational ex- periment to meet the expediency of the moment. An announcement of the scholas- tic averages for the first semester of the cur- rent academic year shows the success of Brown's unique method of meeting its obligation in providing educational oppor- tunity to 424 veteran men and women who were unable to satisfy the entrance re- quirements of the regular college. The first semester scholastic average of the Veterans College, 2.0606, compares fa- vorably with the average attained by mem- bers of the regular college, 2.3 364. This numerical system of grading indicates that the average student in the veterans group IS receiving quality grades of C or better. At the beginning of the present semester 137 male students who had attained a scholastic average of 2.9 were transferred to the regular college. Three female stu- dents with an average of 3.17 were ad- mitted to the regular sessions in Pembroke College. (Another 100 transfer this fall.) This transfer occurred a year and one- half earlier than had been originally an- ticipated by the University officials and made possible the admittance of 155 addi- tional men with the opening of the new term last February. The present enroll- ment of the Veterans College is 445. i BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY shock. His widow wrote Roy Grinnell May 28 to report Harry's passing on March 12, 1947.

His life has been one of complete absorption in school affairs. At the time of his resignation, Mr. Atwell had only one senior in point of .service among Massachusetts su- perintendents. The School Com- mittee paid high compliment to his service, noting great progress made during his years in office, as well as his gift in human relationships.

When the Eastern Airlines plane crashed in Maryland May 3U, Norman MacKay '22 was one of those who lost his life. Forty- seven years old, the commercial manager of Station WBAY in Coral Gables, Fla., he was going home after having accom- panied Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker"s party on Its record-breaking Constellation flight to New York May 28. Mr. MacKay had been director of ad- vertising and programs for WQAM Miami for 15 years prior to July 1945 when he re- signed that post. He was in Hollywood briefly but returned to Florida to help or- ganize WIRA Fort Pierce, in September moving on to WBAY. He was past gov- ernor of the Florida Advertising Federa- tion. His first post had been in the ad- vertising department of the Proi'ideiicc l^ews but went south for similar work on the staff of the Miami Herald. With Joseph Cotton, now of the films, Mr. MacKay took part in several productions of the Miami Civic Theatre and also served as its di- rector. He was President of the First Nighters Club of Miami. His fraternity was Delta Tau Delta. The former Harriet L. Seabury, Mrs. Mac- Kay, survives him with two sons: Donald, a Navy veteran, and Douglas, honor grad- uate of Miami Senior High. WBAY dedi- cated a memorial quarter hour to Mr. Mac- Kay on May 31.

Perelnian on the Prowl < < ► ► Globe-trotting (and pacing, too, probably) for Holiday magazine, S. J. Perelman '25 wrote from Penang, Malaya, in May to tell Vice-President Bigelow what travel was like these days: 'It demands a cast-iron stomach, an ex- chequer like the Bank of England, and an infinite capacity to withstand boredom," he said. "I was 53 days getting to Singa- pore from San Francisco and lay about Bangkok a month trying to badger the French into letting me cross into Indo- China. They wore out all the excuses about how dangerous Angkor Wat was, how I might be ambushed by the Vietnamese, and so forth, and finally as much as admitted that they don't want anyone with a type- writer to snoop around their private war. It was a pity; I would have liked to see their Foreign Legionnaires, most of whom are ex-members of the Afrika Korps and revel through the streets of Saigon shout- 26 ing "Sieg Heil" and chanting the Horst Wessel song . . . "Next jump from this little stronghold of British colonial power is Ceylon and Bombay; I hope to spend a month in Baroda, Jaipur, New Delhi, and Ka.shmir, and after that head for Nairobi in East Africa. If the tse-tse fly (or still worse, English cooking) doesn't get me, I ought to be in Paris by September 1st and home by early October. "Watch for somebody closely resembling Trader Horn, with a mahogany-colored face, a tarry pigtail, and a rolling walk. In the meanwhile, all my best, and please tell Kappy (cryptic though it may sound) that I wish I'd paid more attention to Winslow's Geography back at the Candace Street Grammar School. As it is, all I know now about the principal exports of Malaya are rubber, copra, and — er — ignoramuses like myself. " ^ BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY Mrs. Albert E.

In call- ing this to our attention, Larry Lanpher writes: "It really is something to have a new technique accepted by the American Medical Association, and this one has brought Dan nationwide recognition." Dr. Troppoli is currently secretary of the Provi- dence Medical Association, serving under Dr. Guy Wells "16. Dwight Bartlett's son Harlan is headed for Brown this fall.

Easton Louttit's collection of mate- rial on the legend of the Wandering Jew made an interesting feature story in a re- cent Providence Sunday Journal. Melvin Apple, who has been fighting a losing battle with our mailing stencils, writes to assure us that he is really living at Who Paid for It? ► Typical of new activity through class agencies was a letter sent to members of 1937 by William R. Hulbert, Jr., chairman of the 10th reunion gift committee: "Who paid for your education at Brown?" he began. "Not you — at most you paid only half the bill. The balance came from the generous gifts of others who had gone before. Now you and I have an opportunity to participate in a plan to make Brown a finer place for those who follow us: The Housing and Development Pro- gram will expand Brown's physical facilities to a point deserved and required by the University's top ranking educational posi- tion." Recognising the success of the Housing campaign to be the most important goal of the College today, the Class of 1937 has decided to give no special 10th reunion gift. Instead, "1937"s gift will be the sum total of our contributions to the Building Drive." Hulbert continued: "Except for individual memorials (which you are free to give), every cent donated will be credited to our Class, and the housing-unit financed by our combined contributions will become a permanent memorial to Classmates killed in the war." Class rivalry showed in the announce- ment that 1937 was well ahead of either 1936 or 1938. The showing was possible because of the number of gifts of $100 or more, since less than one-fifth of the Class of '37 had pledged, Hulbert reported. He asked for commitments by June "so that we may announce at the reunion the size and nature of the building unit to be given by us." His slogan: "A gift to '37 is a gift to Brown — a gift to Brown is a gift to '37." Frank L. Milan has been named high priest of the Pine Tree Royal Arch Chapter of Masons in Stonington, Me.

When he received his Harvard degree of Master of Public Health, Ty acted as marshal for his School in the Commence- ment exercises. Events Betteeen the Walls ► ► A MEMBER of the class of 1919, a man with a good classical and Classical background, read with interest the announcement from the Providence Brown Club that it would hold its annual outing at the Wannamoisett on May 22. He also noted that Westcott Moulton would talk on "Intermural Sports." The alumnus wrote: "According to my Century Unabridged, while Intramural sports relate to contests within walls, Intermural sports concern events between walls. This should accordingly be both a unique and interesting discourse. Among Intermural events which offhand occur to me are: "1. Shadow-casting. 2. Loss of face. 3. Outpointing. 4. Who cast the first brick? 5. Intercoping. 6. Coursing. 7. Mortarfication. 8. Footing. 9. Archery." In replying, we told him his letter had left us "wall-eyed." And, although inno- cent of the announcement, we did hope the Club did a good vallum of business. In conclusion, we told the feller to go to Walla Walla. ^ 82 Rock St., Whitman, Mass.

For instance, while we knew that Don Flynn was busy and active in Kansas City, we did not know that Sam Henry had decided to go out there to make it his headquarters. In St. Louis Johnny Mosby and Rod Meyer attended the St. Louis functions so that the Class of 1930 was well represented. Another bit of news bobbed up in the fact that Norman McCabe is head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in In- diana. These data were missing from our files until the Bigelow's visitation to In- dianapolis brought them to light. We are glad to see that Charlie Menges, the able illustrator, and Freddy Crescitelli, the equally able scientist, both appeared at the Los Angeles meeting, which indicates there is a little life still left in the Class of 1930. Another comment buried in the Alumni News last month was that Johnny McFad- den is apparently developing into an after dinner speaker in that he was supposed to be the "piece de resistance" at the Girl Scout Banquet in Evanston, but unfor- tunately he had the "flu".

Insight for Magnolia ► The first electron microscope in Texas, of the most powerful type in the world, is being used by Dr. Paul Reichertz of Dallas, senior physicist of the Magnolia Petroleum Co. who received his Ph.D. from Brown in 1943 and helped develop wartime radar.

Why She Needed to Know y "Which is the biggest elm tree on the Brown campus?" A woman wanted to know and came into Uni- versity Hall on Commencement Day in an effort to find out. It was one question none of the staff, for all its varied experience, had ever been asked, and the inquirer would take no guesses for an answer. Several likely trees among the older elms were pointed out, but she repeated, "Which is the largest?" "Do you need to know today? ' parleyed one of the secretaries. "I certainly do," was the response. "I must find the biggest elm.

(Photo rourtesy of The Eastern Under- writer.) Korean Headache ► ► How WOULD YOU have liked the job of untangling the affairs of 19 Japanese insurance companies operating in Korea be- fore our occupation? That was what landed in the lap of Clark T. Foster '40, previously an Air Corps Captain. When he was assigned to military gov- ernment in Korea, it was discovered that he had an actuarial background, says T/ie Eastern Underu;riter. He was made mili- tary government actuary and summoned to headquarters in Seoul to work under the Major in charge of all insurance matters. He had to evaluate the business of the Jap companies, supervise the actuarial opera- tions of the one existing Korean life insur- ance company and help set up two pros- pective organizations. Only three of the Korean aides had any knowledge of actuarial matters at all. Equipment consisted of two hand-oper- ated calculating machines, an ancient type- writer, and innumerable abacuses ("the primitive calculators Americans usually as- sociate with the sidesof babies' play-pens"). Moreover, the Japanese taught Foster at the military government school had given no vocabulary drill in such words as re- serve, premium, and commutation column. Most of the original records were in Japa- nese home offices, too. Foster is back now, a member of the Group department of The Prudential's ac- tuarial division. A former managing editor of the Brown Daily Herald and Phi Beta Kappa member, he joined the Army Air Corps in 1942. He served in the China- Burma-India theatre as a weather-radar officer after meteorology courses at N.Y.U., before being assigned for military govern- ment and language study. He had been with The Prudential before the war. ^ 33 The editor's apologies go to Frederick Bloom for some misinformation previously printed about his wedding.

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY It Was 1948 and l\o Mistake ► ► It was startling to see the numeral; ■'1948" over the Van Wickle Gates and in front of Sayles Hall on Class Night for the campus dance. But. because of the wartime acceleration, this was the first section of 1948 which was being graduated. Actually, of course, men from classes in the early '40s were receiving their degrees. (Given their option, most of them chose their original class as the one with which they want all-time affiliation.) Curiously enough, next June the Class Night numerals will still he 1948, for the final section of the class will be graduated then. During the period of accelera- tion, with three semesters a year, each class consisted of three divisions. A man in the third semester of his college studies, normally a Sophomore, could thus be a classmate of an entering Freshman.

And then I came to Brown in 1909 — been here ever since, getting along with everybody all that time, looking after hundreds of my boys.
