tion In' Campus Elections Despite
Report f Inquiry Cominittee
After lengthy debate yesterday
afternoon, the members of the Ora-
torical Board declined the reommuen-
dation of its reorganization committee
to take the Oratorical association out
of campus elections and made the or-
ganization one of limited members
rather than an all-campus body. The
majority of those present at the meet-
ing expressed the belief that although
minor changes should be made in the
constitution, no radical plans suc as
proposed by the committee should be
I put into operation.
The committee recommended that
the association withdraw from campus
elections, so that the organization
could have behind it a more unified
group. It was suggested that the as-
sociation be an active one with a con.
trolling board made up of members
of the public speaking faculty. The
president, recording secretary, and
first assistant treasurer were to be
elected by the student members, while
I the treasurer and financial manager
were to be chosen by the controlling
Membership was to be of three kinds
according to the recommendations:
Active, which would include members
of literary societies or any other so-
cieties wiskimng to affiliate with the or-
ganization, controlling board members,
students, faculty members, and citi-
zens of Ann Arbor who should meet
the membership requirements; hon-
orary, as selected; and patron mem-
bers selected from the lecture course
ticket purchasers. It was also sug-
gested that the meetings be social
in nature with programs. The debate
committee was to be composed of the
chairman of the Board, financial man-
i ager, three non-student members, and
four faculty members. The lecture
committee was to be made up of the
same personnel.
Action was delayed on some of the
recommendations, but the only change
that was acceptable to the members
as a whole was a reorganization of the
lecture committee to effect a student
representation. At the present time
the committee comprises only faculty
members, but a new plan which is be-
ing considered would add three stu-
dents to it.

Hackett Talks
K To Council On
Delegates of the Interfraternity
council .who met yesterday afternoon
in the Union heard addresses by Nor-
man -ackett, the actor, and Joseph
A. Bursley, Dean of Students.
Mr. Hackett, spoke on "General
Problems of General Fraternities."
He emphasized the need of complete
participation in local interfraternity
councils and adherence to the Na-
tional Interfraternity conference, cit-
ing several cases in which both na-I
tional and local organizations have
done great service.
He related the story of an attempt
made two years ago by the legislature
of 'Texas to abolish all fraternities
within the state's borders, describing
how the conference saved the situa-
tion. Mr. Hackett made a plea for
strict observation of liquor enforce-
ment, lest the entire fraternity cause
-should suffer because of the breach
of a few unrepresentative houses. I

By s1~nn Kolicbi,
Sports Editor, Daily Cardinal '
MADISON, March L-In the most
thrilling and closest fought basket-
ball game of the season, the Michigan
cage five took an overtime Icontest
from the faltering Badger quintet by
a score of 24 to 23, which keeps the
Wolverines in the Big Ten race.
The game was an exciting one and
not until the gun went off after the
overtime period, was the contest de-
cided. With three minutes of the
regular time to go the Wolverines led
b1y a score of 21 to 16, but with rapid
baskets by Merkel, Hotchkiss and
Behr, Wisconsin knotted the score.
In the five minute overtime, after
several shots were missed by both
teams, Captain Doyle caged a one-
hand shot. Chambers then fouled
Hotchkiss, who sank his counter. Har-
rigan, however, put the Maize and
Blue two points ahead when he sank
a free throw. With 10 seconds left, to
play, Chambers fouled Behr. He miss-
ed his first toss and rang the second
one as the gun went off-falling short
by a point of tieing the score.
The Michigan five started with a
rush and in the first ten minutes of
play garnered 11 points while the
Badgers were held at bay by a fierce
and stubborn defense. However, the
Meanwell short pass system started
to function and the half ended with
the Wolverines two points in the lead,
13 to 11.
For Michigan, Captain Doyle at
center and Harrigan were the heroes,
Doyle taking the tip-off every time
and giving his team the offense while
Harrigan performed well at guard,
keeping Behr, the Badger scoring ace,
scoreless until the final minute of the
game, when he knotted the count. The
