Music Furnished by I2-Piece Orchestra
From Detroit; Specialty Dancing
Adds to Festivities
By Marian L. Welles
With decorations appropriate to the
season, carrying out an atmosphere
of russet autumn, the Pan-Helleni
ball, the fourth annual social function
of this kind to be sponsored by the
Michigan Inter-sorority association,
was held last night in the Union ball
The ballroom was attractively
adorned with festoons of wine-colored
leaves extending from the ceiling to
the floor. Bowers of palms and bril-
liantly colored flowering plants were
formed at various points about the
room and elaborate motifs of colored
leaves .and artificial grasses were
hung over the fireplace and the chape-
rone's booth. The orchestra platform
was banked in flowers and ferns.
Small potted evergreens footed each
panel in the corridor leading into the
ballroom; the w h o e decorative
scheme carried out a seasonal atmos-
phere which was intensified by an
open fire, in the fireplace and n-
shaded cathedral candles.
II rusee's Orchestra Played
Music for the ball was furnished by
Bob Prusee's 12-piece orchestra from
Detroitsand continued until 1:30.
Specialty dancing by a young member
of the band of musicians added to the
festivity of the evening. Colored
lights were thrown on the dancers
from the balcony. 0
The Pan-Hellenic ball is the only
large social function of the year given
by the women of the University and
has long held a prominent place on1
the social callendar of the year. The
party of this year has taken on an
added interest because of its location1
in the Union ballroom.1
1)Patrons and Patronesses
The patrons and patronesses for the
ball were: President and Mrs. Clar-
ence Cook Little, Dean and Mrs. Burs-
ley, Dean and Mrs. Effinger, Dean

tinuing festivities until three o'clock

Admission To Be Based On Scholar-
ship, Personality, And Efficiency
In Serving School
Phi Kappa Phi, national scholastic
honor society, installed a chapter at
the University'of Michigan last night
with the admission of 25 members of
the faculty as charter members and
the initiation of 10 more members of
the faculty. Dean Kraus of the Col-
lege of Pharmacy presided at the
initiation and at the banquet which
followed. The installation was in the
hands of Prof. L. H. Pammel of Iowa
State "college and Dean J.. S. Stevens
of the University of Maine, both of
whom were charter,members of Alpha
chapter at its inception at the Uni-
versity of Maine in 1898.
The installation came last night as
the result of a petition to the national
chapter last summer. Seven members
of the faculty are members of chap-
ters at other universities and they felt
that there was a place on the campus
for such an organization. The mem-
bers of the society included President
C. C. Little, and Dean Kraus. Accord-
ing to Dean Kraus of the pharmacy
college, the organization is more com-
1 prehensive in its scope than any of
the other honor societies on the
campus at the present time.
Threefold Requirements
The requirements for admission are,
(high scholarship,tdistinctive efficiency
and service to the University, and
outstanding personality reflected by
connections with associates and fac-
ulty. Its point of departure from the
policies of other honor societies is
that it recognizes no specialized
academic requirements. Any member
of the University, regardless of his
Imajor subjects or the college to which
he belongs, is eligible for membership
after his junior year. In this feature
the scholars of the campus are rep-
resented regardless of specialties or
Kraus Elected Head
The officers of the Michigan chapter,
elected at the meeting following the
installation are, Dean Edward H.
Kraus, president; Dean Edmund E.
Day, vice president; Prof. Edwin M.
Baker, secretary; and John C. Christ-
ensen, treasurer. '
The installation and initiation last
night was confined to members of the
faculty. The first initiation to in-
clude seniors and graduates of the
University will take place in June,

Talent Debates Admissibility
Doiheny Senate Testimony
As Evidence

(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Nov. 26.-Ranked in col-
umns across a snow swept field, 3,000
students of the United States Military
and Navy academies today shared in
the dedication of Soldiers' field, where
tomorrow the 22 men representing the
Army and Navy football teams, will
hold the eyes of 100,000 spectators in
the first service game ever played in
the Middlewest.
Thousands of spectators assembled
in the vast stadium today braving a
bitter wind and a driving, biting snow
to attend the ceremonies dedicating
the city's monument to its war dead,
in which Vice-President Charles G.
Dawes made the principal speech.
The cadets paraded from their re-
spective hotel quarters to the stadium
in the face of icy flakes and the sharp
winds of Lake Michigan, to find a
colorful picture awaiting them, and to
take their place in the concrete bowl
which they studded with their blue and
gray uniforms. An American Legion
section presented a pageant depicting
the history, of the flag, and behind
them were service men of allied na-
tions, carrying their ┬░respective na-
tional colors.

the outcome of which still was in
doubt when court recessed until Mon-
While witnesses waited, and with
jury excluded, the opposing batteries
of big calibre legal talent poured an
incessant fire of arguments upon a
salient regarded as vital by both sides.
The focal point of the broadside was
the question of the admissibility as
I evidence of the testimony given before
the Senate oil investigating committee
in 1923 and 1924 by Edward L. Doheny.
Included in this testimony is Doheny's
own story of how he advanced $100,000
to Albert B. Fall, co-defendant, while
the latter was Secretary of the In-
terior. Before the day was over, the
hostilities had spread along the whole
legal front, with defense attorneys
accusing the prosecution of disregard-
ing the rules of evidence and present-
ing its case in improper sequence. But
'the question of admitting Doheny's
Senate committee testimony remained
j throughout the key salient. The ques-
tion never before has been presented
for adjudication in a Federal court.
In their opening statements, govern-
ment counsel dwelt at length upon a
I $100,000 cash transaction between
Doheny and Fall during the period of
the alleged conspiracy January 1, 1921,
and December 11, 192g.}
Doheny appeared before the Senate
committee January 24, 1924, and told
freely of having arranged to transfer
1 $100,000 to Fall in 1921. The govern-
ment wishes to incorporate this testi-
Imony into the trial record but the de-
fense objects on the ground that such
procedure would constitute compul-
sory testimony of the defendant
against himself in a criminal trial, an
action specifically prohibited by the
fifth amendment of the constitution.
The government presses for the ad-
mission because it has not the right,
under the rules of evidence, to sum-
mon the defendants to the stand in the
present trial.

Northwestern Will Play Illinois, Ohio,

Sothern California
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Nov. 26.-The shift play
will be virtually barred in Western
Conference football next year, through
a decision of the athletic directors
here tonight to enforce a two second
stop on all shift plays, before the ball
is snapped.
Seeking to complete his schedule,
Coach Spears of Minnesota, who gave
I to the gridiron the famous play a
score of years ago, offered to abandon
the shift if the other coaches desired,
and a gentleman's agreement was
adopted. Coach Robert Zuppke, of
Illinois, was one of the sponsors of
the proposal to make shifting players

No Games In Seven Years
The meeting next fall between Chi-

standing results of the session. They

cause, as Coach Stagg once said,of
tension between the undergraduates.
The reported break of football rela-
tions between Chicago and Northwest-
ern, rivals for 25 years, also became
an accomplished fact by failure to

The three eastern games will send
Ohio to Princeton, and Indiana and
Purdu~e to 1larvard. In return, the
Navy will com to Michigan and Penn
will return the visd of l'hiago. From
the far West, Utah will come to North-
western's new stadium.
All but three of the conference
teams still had open dates tonight,
when the athletic directors adjourned
and negotiations with other leading
teams for intersectional games will be
contmnued. Chicago, Michigan and
Northwestern alone announced com-
plete programs.
Only One Break
Of all the reported breaks in tradi-
tional games, only the Chicago-North-
western report proved true. When
Minnesota announced willingness to
drop the shift, Michigan signed up for
a continuance of their annual battle.
Wisconsin, after long argument, sign-
ed up again for the traditional finale
at Chicago. Illinois and Ohio meet
again to close the season, and Purdue
and Indiana as usual.
The eastern trip of Utah marks the
first visit to the Big Ten from a leader
of the Rocky Mountain conference,
and the Southern California visit to
Chicago will give the Middlewest its
first sight of Pacific coast football.
Purdue and Indiana barely kept
within the conference four game mini-
mum, while all the others, except Chi-
cago and Michigan, landed five games
and these two signed up six North-
western vied with Chicago this time
in signing up home games, each get-
ting five.

schedule for all Big Ten games for
