College Heads Believe Further'
Initiative on Projects Is
up to Faculties.





First Draft for Organization Was
Rejected Last Year by
School Executives.
Welieing that further initiative
on the University college project
should come from the faculties, the
conference of the Deans gave gen-
eral consent at its meeting- yester-
day morning to have the latest re-
port of the executive committee for
the University college scrutinized
by the Deans of the various col-
leges before any consequent action
is taken.
This report of the committee is
the results of the work of that body
since the first draft of the Univer-
sity college's organization was re-
jected by -a number of the faculties
more than a year ago. Since that
time, and until the resignation of
President Little last January, the
committee met weekly and revised
its previous work.
Appointed in acordance with an
action of the Regents take at their'
April meeting in 1927, the executive
committee began to work out de-..
tails of organization and establish-
ment of a University College. When
its preliminary report was drafted
and presented to President Little'
and the Regents, both approved
over the partial rejection of the
With regard to the action of the;
Deans, Dr. Frank E. Robbins, assis-
tant to the President, made the fol-
lowing statement: "Though the
University college project lost some
of its immediate impetus through
the resignation of President Little,
the devising of a plan whereby the
undergraduate courses could b
better adapted to the changing re-t
quirements of the student body has
held a formidable foothold in the
attention of the faculties.

Freshmen Elect Bauss F
Begin Final Plans i
Election of Harvey Bauss, '33, as
captain of the freshmen for the'
fall games next Saturday morn-
ing was the feature of yesterday's,
activities preparatory to the under-
class struggle. The naming of!
Bauss was made at a mass meeting
of the more than 400 first year stu-
dents last night in the ballroom of
the Union.
Both the sophomores and the
freshmen now have chosen their
leaders for the games and are com-
pleting their organization. Ap-
pointment of lieutenants, selection
of the respective class members to
take part in the individual events,
and the holding of secret mass
meetings are next to be considered
by the class leaders.
The freshmen meeting" last
night was the largest yet held by
the first year class since Freshman,

class officers as an indication of
the strong spirit that is running
through the yearlings and that will

Cox. The keen competition for the
leadership did not split the class,
however, as it immediately united

Prior to the election the fresh-
men were given several pep talks.
The principal one was by Dr. W.
D. Henderson, director of the Uni-
versity Extension division, who took
as his subjet "Down Sophs, Up
Frosh." He pleaded for class spirit,
and stated that he would in the
future consider himself a member
of the class of '33. He likewise re-
lated several incidents of previous
underclass struggles.!
Walter Crego, '30, several times
captain of his class in the games
also made an appeal for class spirit
and told the first year students of
several tricks that had been used
with success on previous occasions.
Official plans for the fall games,'
being made under the direction of
Richard Cole, '30, for the Student
council, are rounding into final'
shape. The games will start at 10
o'clock Saturday morning with the
sophomores and freshmen forming
into groups at 9 o'clock at the
Waterman gymnasium and the
Union steps respectively.

Prices Drop $10-$30 a Share;
Curb Losses Range
By Stanley W. Prenosil, A. P.
Financial Editor.
NEW YORK, Nov. 6.-An unex-
pected and somewhat mysterious
break in stock prices, rivaling in
extent any heretofore recorded but
lacking much of the hysteria of re-
cent reactions, threw Wall Street
into a turmoil again today as it
was struggling to get back on its
feet after the wild sessions of the
previous fortnight.
Prices Drop.
Prices of many leading issues on
the New York Stock Exchange
dropped $10 to $30 per share, falling,
below the low levels established inj
the spectacular decline of October!
29th, with a sprinkling of inactive1
specialties losing $31 to $100 per'
share. Similar declines took place
on the New York Curb Exchange..
First National Bank stock dropped
$1000 per share, being quoted at
$5000 bid, and most of the other
New York bank and trust company
shares fell $10 to $120 per share.
In accordance with a ruling an-
nounced before, the opening of
Monday's market, the Stock Ex-!
change closed at 1 o'clock today in-
stead of 3 o'clock, but the final quo-
tations were not printed until one±
hour and forty-five minutes after
the closing gong had sounded. To-
tal sales for the three hour ses-
sion were 5,914,760 shares, which
contrast with 6,202,930 shares in the'
full five hour session on Monday.
The Stock Exchange was closed
yesterday, election day, a legal hol-
iday in New York State.
Opens Heavily.
The market opened heavy as
blocks of 5,000 to 25,000 shares
were dumped at initial declines of
$1 to $6 per share. Losses were
gradually extended as the session
progressed with trading orderly1
until the last few minutes, when
prices of several issues broke $1 to
$5 between sales in a mad rush of
selling. At no time, was there any
indication of a general rally, al-
though a few stocks made moder-
ate recoveries on final sales.

Fletcher hall dormitory for male
students on Sybil street, will be va-
cated by students living there be-
fore Monday, it was announced last
night by F. B. Wahr, assistant dean
of students.
Dean Wahr would make no com-
ment aside from his official state-
ment, which read: "Fletcher hall is
closed for student occupancy from
Monday evening, November 11, un-
til the end of the present semester."
Jasivant R. Gandhi, owner of the
dormitory, which was built some six
years ago, said last night that he
knew nothing about the action
taken by the University in closing
the place to students. He would
make no other comment.
Fletcher hall was raided by city
police Saturday and a quantity of
liquor confiscated.

Production of Opera.
Composers of the score and lyrics
for "Merrie-Go-Round" the 1929
production of the Union Opera
were announced yesterday by Roy
Langham, director of the orches-
tra. More than 20 numbers are in
the musical score for the produc-
Lowel Love, '30L, assistant con-
ductor of the orchestra and
present the choral conductor, is re-
sponsible for 15 numbers in the
score. Love has had considerable
experience in the army and was at,
one time a director of an army
band. The -military atmosphere
which the book calls for is said to
be embodied in all of the numbers
which he has composed, and he has
made use of all of the various or-
chestral instruments.
Truesdale Mayers, '30, has written
three character numbers. His ex-
perience as a character actor in
several campus dramatic produc-
tions has been embodied in the
rythm of the music which he has
written for the production.
1 Two dance numbers have been
contributed by William Reynolds,
'30. Reynolds has been with the
Opera for the past two years and
this year trained the choruses until
Roy Hoyer arrived. -
Richard Watkins, '30. has con-
tributed a jazz tune for the score.
Watkins has had experience as a
pianist on the campus, and wrote
the only jazz tune that the book
calls for.
For the first time in an Opera
production professional assistant in
the work on the score has been en-
listed. Harry L. Alford of Chicago
has built the orchestral and vocal
Lyrics for the production are be-
ing written by Donel Hamilton
Haines, author o- the book, and D.
B. Hempstead, Jr., '31, who takes
one of the character parts in the
show. The lyrics are to be used
for the most part in the three char-
acter numbers and are, being fitted
to the music by the author and
impersonator of the parts.
