medical classes, the total member-
ship being limited to 28.

Lemen, both of the senior, medical
class. Students and all others in-
terested are invited to inspect the
workshop in the University Hospital
and to attend the Christmas party.

for Members.
Comedy Club, honorary dramatic
organization, held tryouts for mem-
berships yesterday afternoon in"
Sarah Caswell Angell hall, and
picked a group of approximately 20
to be recalled for second tryouts.
"I was very pleased," commented
Richard S. Cole, '30, president of
the organization, "with the interest
shown in the tryouts, and some
'really good material was exhib-
T ited."g
The group which wvill be recalled

end, and Elmer Marek, former Ohio
State halfback, were given financial
aid directly or indirectly by their
respective schools.
Griffith Answers Charge.
Major John L. Griffith, athletic
commissioner of the Conference,
said he had been given the charges
several months ago and that the
faculty committee had ruled both
players and both institutions not
guilty of violating conference rules.
In the Marek case, the Cedar Ra-
lpids newspaper. published an affi-
davit. by Jess Blake. railroad corn-
p~any official, who charged that Ma-
rek's father had informed him that
his son "held out for the most mon-
v" in selecting a school. And that
his father said his son had received
the best offer from Ohio State, ex-
pecting to get $200 a month.
Alongside the affidavit was a de-
nial' of such statements by the el-
der Marek.
Backer Also lnnocekit.
Ma.fbr Griffith said an investig-a-
tion in'dicated Marek had been
promised financial aid by certain
Ohio alumni if he would come there
but after enrollment he received
nothing and had to work his way
through school. The second affida-
v'it, bringing up the Baker case, was
made by Charlcs D. Hadlock, of
Chicago, who said Baker had boast-
ed to him that he was given free
meals by an Evanston restaurant.
Hc would get checks like other pa-
trons, but turned them in without
paying for them.
Major Griffith said Baker's state-
ment had been investigated and it
was found that he was working for
his meals in the restaurant and
that he was unquestionably boast-
iAgl the charges against these
two men have been passed by me
over to the faculty committee,"
Major Griffith explained. "I have
nothing to do with deciding the
guilt or innocence of any ,athlete
or school in the Conference. The
faculty committee does that and its
decision is final."
