Blau Talks
On Groups,
Individuals
Prof. Peter Blau, of the Univer-
sity of Chicago Sociology Depart-
ment presented the topic "Bu-
reaucracy; Social Structure of
Sociological Processes," to an over-
flow audience, yesterday.
Blau explained the attributes of
an individual and the attributes
of the group and how the two are
related. A long question period
then ensued at which time he de-
fined his terms.
The study of government agen-
cies employment interviewers'
patterns of cooperation and com-
petition was then discussed. Blau
the author of the book "Dynam-
ics of Bureaucracy," the study of
employment interviewers present-
ed information fromthis and sub-
sequent research material pertain-
ing to welfare agencies in Chicago
to explain the interviewers pat-
terns.
Blau then explained the factors
which cause difference in social
patterns. "Some e m p l o y m e n t
agencies workers keep any good
employee records under their blot-
ters away from fellow workers so
that they may be promoted soon-
er. This is the competitive system.
In the cooperative system the
workers share their good employee
records," he said.

Gift Honors
Law Quad
Donor Cook
A bouquet of yellow roses ar-
rived at the Lawyers Club yes-
terday, commemorating the 100th
birthday of its founder William
W. Cook..
The gift was made by his niece,
Mrs. Florentine Cook Heath, one
of the few women, according to
Prof. John Reed of the Law
School, whom Cook even tolerated.
Cook was born April 4, 1858 in
Hillsdale, Mich. He received his
bachelor's degree in 1880 and
graduated fron the Law School in
1882. After amassing .a goodly
amount of money practicing cor-
porate law in the East, he decid-
ed to contribute to the Law School
at the University.
Letters written at the time of
undertaking show Cook's pride in
the venture. The Lawyers Club
was to be an -integral educational
adjunct to the Law School, like
the famous Inns of Court in Eng-
land. Nothing was too good for it.
An old newspaper clipping re-
veals that Cook was a "man apart,
a mysterious individual, secre-
tive, incomprehensible." Because
of his introverted personality,
"turning from the imperfections
of the actual to the creations of
his own mind," the clipping sug-
gests he refused to view his crea-
tions "for fear, perhaps, that they
would not realize the splendor of
his dreams."
