The Fascinating Story of That Talented Alpha

0 Photographer, Margaret Bourke-White, O I I

By L O R R A I N E J O N E S M C N A L L Y , NU

SHE loves, so she says, heights—such things as great, multi-storied
skyscrapers and factories. And yet she herself is not very tall; hard-
ly more than a slip of a girl, is Margaret Bourke-White ( O i l ) , who
works high up on the sixty-first floor of the Chrysler Building, New York
City, in her own Studio. On the other hand, there is something about her
personality which suggests heights, a vigor and eagerness which, though
her stature is slight, seem to be capable of carrying her up and up, and
then further upward. Her eyes, deep brown, sparkle with liveliness, and
her hands, long fingered and artistic, twitch to be doing things.

I t was probably that—her love of heights—which sent her off on a
career few women have even so much as thought about, that of an in-
dustrial photographer, and which has placed her, only four years after
college graduation, in a position few women could ever hope to attain. As
a matter of fact, Margaret explained, the idea of going into the field of
industrial photography did not occur to her until she was nearly a gradu-
ate. She had studied art at Columbia University—where she first became
acquainted with photography—when she decided to go out to the Uni-
versity of Michigan and plunge into the field of biology. But when she
had left Michigan and had installed herself in Cornell University to con-
tinue the work in biology, she came to acquire an interest in photography
which, in the end, grew stronger than the other interest and eventually
Mastered it.

Directly after she was graduated from Cornell therefore—1927—she
traveled out to Cleveland and began what has turned out to be—her very
successful career. The thing that really put her on her feet, she said, oc-

Steamship lines; and again, she was permitted to go into the factories of
the I . G. Farben, the chemical and dye trust where she shot innumerable
photographs—the first woman ever allowed to carry on such a task in
all of that company's history!

There was also the site of the German Hollywood—UFA—which
came into the focus of her camera, as well as the Junkers Plant, German
flying center at Dessau. Incidentally, she managed to do a deal of flying
throughout her stay in Germany.

But one of the most amusing—and exciting—events that she remem-
bers of her German tour, was when she was held up in the Ruhr district
and thrust into prison—suspected of being a French spy! She spent eight
hours in the prison but was eventually released—none the worse for her
escapade. And it all came, she says, of traveling without a passport, in an
Italian automobile that had a French-sounding name!

All the while she was working in Germany, an idea had been taking
form in her mind, which had persisted until it finally became a settled
plan—the plan of going into Russia. But the point, once the idea was de-
cided, was how was one to get into that country—especially one de-
termined to go picture-gathering? " I was warned by everyone," she said,
"to expect all kinds of difficulty when trying to get into Russia."

But then—after all—what is getting into a country to a person—

she turned to further adventures abroad and once more headed for Rus- Artist—Photography
sia. On this second trip into that country she went in for more diversified An Art
activity and besides Russian industry, began taking photographs of other
interesting phases of the Russian scene. She took pictures of Russian
villages and of their peasants; Russian nurseries, and, at the other ex-
treme, Russian political meetings; and many pictures of the Russian
theatre—the interior and performances especially. I n speaking about the
Russian theatre—and in answer to the question as to what she thought
about it—Margaret laughed; they are very serious and ultra-dramatic
in the Russian theatre—oh, much more serious than in other countries,
she said. For instance, she saw a performance of O'Neill's "Desire Under
the Elms." I t was terribly dramatic—much more so than any per-
formance of it ever dared to be in America.

But the finest thing in the Russian artistic world to her is the Opera
and the Moscow Ballet school. She had many occasions to work with
these institutions during her stay, and when she spoke about them, she
became eager and enthusiastic. "The Russian Ballet and Opera are the
finest and most interesting things in the world today," she said vehement-

They seem almost like a fairy-tale, her adventures in Russia. For a

young woman—an American at that—to be allowed to trespass into
some of the most "closed" districts of the Soviet Republic and to be
permitted to take photographs of what she saw, is indeed very remark-
able. The whole secret of her success, Margaret explained, lies in the
fact that in Russia one is either accepted or one is not accepted. And she,
apparently, was just one of the few fortunate enough to be "accepted."

She had one final fling at adventure before returning from this last
trip of hers. She boarded a plane at Moscow and flew, over the Ural
Mountains, into Asia where she remained for one week. I n that short
time was crowded what were perhaps her most harrowing experiences,
well filled with hardships. She endured terrific cold flying over the Ural
Mountains which were of course deeply snow-covered. Then too, in Asia,
she had neither the time nor the opportunity for proper feeding; most
of her meals were carried about on her person in a "little tin can," which
she snatched at during her scramblings about the country; many times
her "meal" consisted of a piece of cheese—a far cry from a full fledged
American dinner!

Her picture taking in Asia ran from scenes of Asiastic villages to—
one of her most cherished productions—pictures of Magneto-Gorsk
which, as she explained, is the largest steel center in the world. I t is still
in construction and though work on it has been going on for two years, it
is still only partially finished. Perhaps one of the reasons for the slow
progress is that they continue to use camels in Asia in place of horses.

as the child became accustomed to it. Posture exercises followed the
morning sun bath. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon nourishment were
served, and all children were required to rest on their beds daily from
two to four. Seven o'clock was bed time for the little ones, and eight
o'clock for the older children. Naturally many children were not well
enough at first for so normal a schedule, and these were kept in bed for
longer periods or entirely, according as their doctors ordered.

in the normal, carefree way children have when they are supervised but signed to merely the gratification of the esthetic sense. Beauty is not
not directed. Pets have meant much to the city children, who have not
been able to have horses or goats at home. There are dogs, and often
a litter of puppies; a few rabbits, ducks and chickens, especially after
Easter. But the greatest joy is learning to ride the ponies, two of which
are always on the premises.

Incidentally a behavior problem has several times been worked out
through fostering a child's love for animals and suggesting to the par-
ents that they provide a dog for the boy on his return home.

But whether the visitor sees the children playing with their pets,
swinging under the trees, or lined up in some outdoor game, the things
that most impress him are their beautiful brown bodies, their happy
carefree voices and their evident enjoyment of their physical and mental
freedom. Seeing the children at a meal is likewise a pleasure. Although
a house mother sits at each table and the Hibbs family occupies a nearby
table, the children are not made self-conscious by the presence of their
elders. All appear to be talking at once, and in such a happy environ-
ment is it remarkable that children who cannot be made to eat at home
soon eat as much as the hungriest? For eat they must! A normal, well-
balanced and most attractive menu is provided, and there is no coaxing
or arguing about what shall be eaten. Even the tiniest tot learns on her
first visit to the dining room that she cannot leave the table until she
has not only eaten all the food on her plate but a slice of bread and
butter and a glass of milk as well.

Apart from the great physical good hundreds of children have de-
rived at the Farm, few have sojourned there without also improving
in behavior. Especially is this true of the "only child" who has always
had his way, and of the delicate child who has used his sickness to
tyrannize over his entire family. Such children learn from their com-
panions what they cannot learn at home, and usually return to their
parents much better citizens. But when a firmer voice is needed there
is "Auntie Kay," as the children lovingly call Mrs. Hibbs, and as a last
disciplinary resort there is "Doctor," who stands for no foolishness. That
the system permits of no argument is a great surprise to the modern
child, but it offers him that other thing he greatly appreciates—justice.
Many a child has written home, telling about some prank, " I got called
for it, but I had it coming to me. I ' l l say this, Doctor is always just."
One of the most effective punishments meted out by Dr. Hibbs to the

In winter plenty of sport was to be had in skiing and tobogganing.
In the summer the inland was warm enough to allow swimming. Other
recreation had almost to be created as many of the popular forms of
amusement were unavailable. One afternoon they were seized with a de-
sire for some ice cream. They were able to get this by going to a nearby
iceberg and chopping off enough for the freezing of the cream. Ac-
cording to Miss Barth, these icebergs with the northern lights make a
scene of magnificent beauty.

Food consisted mainly of fish and wild game. Venison, porcupine,
and sealivers were included. The last dish is considered a great delicacy.

"What on earth does porcupine taste like?" we asked.
"It's something like pork only it is the texture of veal and has a

When Miss Barth first reached Northwest River, the school teacher

Christmas Day in Mosul was very gay. During dinner a servant
announced that a traveling circus troupe, upon hearing that the village
was very rich, had come to entertain them. "And sure enough, there
they were, all in costume and unloading their baggage, getting ready
to entertain us." After dinner the townspeople came to pay homage
to the visitors, and when the circus troupe had finished, these people
danced their own native dances. When the entertainment was over and
the guests had gone home, the chauffeur's wife presented Dorothy with
a native Turkish woman's costume. She was very anxious to know if
it fitted. She spoke to the cook's wife in her native language who trans-

For the short rush season the office of the dean of women at the University

of California writes:
"Rushing in any form is bad and is the weak point of the sorority system,

because, instead of accenting the ideals and aims which the ritual of every sorority
states, it brings to life petty ambitions, competition and jealousy. I f ever anyone
could invent a plan of rushing which could be undertaken and carried through in
the spirit of good sportsmanship, respect and confidence for the other fellow,
willingness to accept victory without conceit and defeat with self-respect, some-
thina would be accomplished. But this is undoubtedly a counsel of perfection. For
ourselves, at the University of California, a short early rushing season has been
•ound the least damaging method by which to recover from this disease of the
sorority system."

It is hardly conceivable that the women's national Greek-letter societies are
jeady to admit that a "counsel of perfection" is beyond their power to achieve.
. u t it behooves them to look to their codes of honor, their Panhellenic word, given

J^ambda Cjrateful for Ttyshing Assistance

T AMBDA owe their Mothers' Club a vote of thanks for the aid given during
rushing. One mother was here to assist in the preparations for every date,

and we were not obliged to fix flowers and table decorations. They planned and
decorated small card tables for the prettiest and most original of our dinners,
a progressive affair which gave all the girls a chance to sit with all the rushees
for one course. They also redecorated the den during Christmas vacation. Especial
thanks is due to Dorothy Bogan Farrington ('30), who served as rush captain,
and who devoted all of her time for two weeks to the house. Her efficiency and
advice were the more appreciated since many of us had never seen this side of a
rushing season before.

Our alumna? association gave us new hardwood floors, and rugs in the up-
stairs hall, which have improved its appearance immensely.—Eleanor Furst (A).
