One month still remains before ten-
tative proposals concerning the pledg-
ing of freshmen by the fraternities at
the University of Michigan must be
in the hands of the faculty committee,
and as yet no definite action has been
taken. Much still remains to be done,
and the time to do it in is practically
cut in half by the two weeks which
must be given over to the rapidly ap-
proaching examinations.
The faculty has asked that the dif-
ferent house clubs, through the me-
dium of some representative body,
take action on the following three re-
forms before February 15 of this year:
(1) reconsideration of house rules
looking toward a better conservation
of time, better scholarship, greater
moral and social responsibility, and
in general a more effective loyalty to
the best interests of the university,. (2)

V(ohr, ing from Prof. Thomas C.Trueblood, of

ot

the oratory department, and Rowland
W. Fixel, '12-'14L, president of the Or-
atorical association.
Although no definite plan of raising
the money has been determined upon,
it is understood that the oratorical
'board will petition the board of re-
gents for permission t solicit from
the Alumni association, which now
numbers about. 115. A donation of
between $50 and $100 from each asso-
ciation would give the desired sum.
It has also been proposed to solicit
private individuals who have shown'
an interest in the Michigan oratory de-
partment.
At the present time no testimonials
are awarded to winners of the Hamil-
ton and final university Peace contest.
In case this fund is raised, prizes will
be given to the successful orators tak-
ing part in these meets.
Prizes for other oratorical events
are already provided for. An endow-
ment of $3,500 by ex-congressman
Frank A. Lawden, of Chicago, furnish-
es two prizes of $100 and $50 each for
the winners of the Northern League
contests. In addition to these are the
Kauffman testimonials of the same
amounts, given for the university con-
tests preliminary to the inter-collegi-
ate meet. Ransom E. Olds, the well-
known automobile manufacturer, has
given six prizes of $50 each for the
members of the Varsity debating
teams, which fought last night. Tes-
timonials for the state, inter-state and
national peace contests, are provided
by the American peace association.

Bishop Denounces "Spawn" Dances
"I am not in favor of the tango" said
Rt. Rev. E. D. Kelly, pastor of St.
Thomas church, last evening. "I have
put an end to the Catholic Student par-
ties where the tango appeared, and I
should like to put an end to the other
spawn dances too. Our church con-
demns the tango as a suggestion and
occasion of sin."

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
The system of indirect elections to
the board in control has been far
enough removed in the past from stu-
dent influence, student opinion and
student representation.
But Mr. Editor what of the future!
Under the recently adopted system of
competition, an athletic committee se-
lects four sophomores as assistants.
The students are allowed to elect two
from these sophomores. In the jun-
ior year, the two successful candi-
dates from the sophomore elections,
run for the manager's positions. The
ones selected automatically become
members of the board of directors,
and under the present system, two
of them will subsequently become
members of the board in control. Re-
member that the students have no
right of petition in this matter. They

Before the close of the day, official
endorsement of the Comedy club's
production of "The Scarecrow," by the
Ann Arbor center of the Drama League
of America, will be either an assured
fact or a vain hope.
The local branch of the league has
chosen a committee of four members
headed by its president, Mrs. A. B.
Ladd, and has given the committee
full power to bind the organization in
the matter of endorsement. They will
attend a special rehearsal of the play
this afternoon and will thereupon ren-
der their decision.
The importance which the manage-
ment of the club attaches to the decis-
ion of the committee may be more
readily appreciated when it is under-
stood that the decision will, in effect,
be that of approximately 1,200 persons
in and about Ann Arbor. Furthermore,
if endorsement be given it will be an
action without precedent in the history
of the national body, for no center
of ' the Drama League has ever offi-
cially sanctioned an amateur perform-
ance.
Although "The Scarecrow" will not
be presented until February 12, many
of the major details of the play have
been fully worked out, and the whole
play has reached a degree of perfec-
tion which is indeed flattering to the
cast.
The fact that Prof. Stanley has fin-
ally consented to lend his aid to the
club continues to excite much favor-
able comment over the campus.
"This wonderful piece of good for-
tune," said Manager Cohen, "is typi-

With the chorus tryouts for the 1914
Michigan Union opera to be held at
the Union at 7:00 o'clock Tuesday
night, the annual show will pass one
of the most important steps toward
production. The chorus will be small-
er than other years, with 32 mem-
bers, making competition somewhat
closer.
At the tryout Tuesday only those
men will be eliminated who are abso-
lutely unadaptable. After exams an-
other trial will be held for further
elimination, and some will probably
be compelled to drop out on account of
ineligibility.' At the first tryout, how-
ever, all chorus aspirants, whether in-
eligible or not, are requested to be
present. Althous4 the chorus len e
must have some singing abilitythe
primary requisite will be grace, and
the men will be picked largely for
their dancing ability.
Although the standard of the chorus
is higher than in other years, Karl B.
Hoch, manager of the production, urg-
es all men who have any dancing or
singing ability to turn out. By a com-
plete new wardrobe for the chorus,
and by the prominence which the
dancers will be given in all parts of
the show, it is thought that a chorus
position will be more attractive than
in other operas.
