When the Maroon baseball team traveled to Japan, reports came back via the American Embassy and clippings from Japanese newspapers. The articles noted the U of C team's good sportsmanship, as well as its "good moral standing and excellent scholarship." And, yes, the Maroons played well too: of 14 games in Japan, they won 13. Meanwhile, the Magazine reported that the Daily Maroon's editors had joined forces with other students to try to institute an honor system to prevent "'cribbing' in examinations." The Magazine wrote, "It is understood that unless the students vote almost unanimously in favor of the project there will be some doubt as to its institution."

1950
T. S. Eliot came to campus-not to read his poetry, but to give a series of four lectures on his ideas of education. In order to get tickets for one of the Mandel Hall lectures, "students were lined three deep from the entrance to the Administration Building to Jones, and from Jones past Kent, at a quarter of eight." Tickets were not passed out until 8:30 a.m. While on campus, Eliot attended the Homecoming Reception, was interviewed by the Maroon, met for a luncheon with Episcopal faculty, and taught a class in the Committee on Social Thought.

1975
Hyde Park played host to royalty when King Olav V of Norway visited the University in the fall, marking the establishment of the Andrew E. and G. Norman Wigeland professorship in Norwegian studies. King Olav's visit also commemorated 150 years of Norwegian immigration to the U.S. From the East, Empress Nagako of Japan visited the Wyler Children's Hospital, where she saw presurgical patients participating in play therapy designed to make them more at ease with their own impending surgery.

1990
The University's athletic and recreational facilities got a face lift. As part of a five-year plan to upgrade facilities, the outdoor track and the tennis courts along Stagg Field and the Quads were resurfaced. In addition, new sod was put down for the soccer and football practice fields as well as on Stagg Field. And a new scoreboard, honoring the late sportswriter Louis Diamond, SB'41, was erected at Stagg Field.
