THE DEFERRED RUSHING
PARADOX.
There is on the campus at the
present time a very definite move-I
ment to make easier the freshman'sf
transition from high school to col-
lege. Quantities of publicity matter
are mailed to every incoming fresh-
man in an effort to help him solve,
some of the perplexing problems
which will confront him on arriv-
ing in Ann Arbor. Freshman week
has been instituted at an enormous
expenditure of effort and a con-
siderable expenditure of money.
Each freshman has been assigned a
faculty adviser to whom he may
appeal for advice or assistance
throughout his first year. Now an
effort is being miade to defer the
rushing of freshmen by fraterni-
ties so that the freshman may
choose his fraternity more deliber-
ately and, it is hoped,,more wisely.I
All this solicitude for the freshman
is a recognition of the fact that the
yearlings of today are less mature

til 6 o'clock in the evening, all pol-
ling to be done at the Union, where
details of the election can be hand-
led with the greatest ease. Argu-
ments in favor of the amendment
have been repeatedly advanced,
while no opposition has yet made
itself apparent.
Despite the unanimity of feeling
favoring the merit system, it will
not pass unless Union members ex-
press their opinion Thursday. A
quorum of 600 ,is necessary. It is
the duty of every man who signed
a petition favoring the amendment
to be at the Union Thursday to cast
his ballot.

To the Editor:
Although deferred rushing has
been "talked about" since 1913, I
certainly do not feel that it has ever
really ' been thought about. It is
absurd to think that the student
body, the fraternity body in par-
ticular, will allow such a drastic

After an extremely successful run
with Philip Barry's Holiday, the
Detroit Civic is introducing thisj
week John Brownell's "The Nut!
Farm," the comedy which some-
what quietly ran for twenty-two
straight weeks at the Cort Theatre
in Chicago, featuring Wallace Ford
in the title part. The Chicago com-
pany is now enjoying a" stay on
Broadway, but the play's release
has enabled Miss Bonstelle to offer
it to Detroit. The story revolves
around a movie-struck family, a
pair of crooks, and the clever
younger son who discovers the
trend of the plot and manages to
turn melodrama into farce with his
wit.
