Fraternities Placed
One of Five


Council Meets First
Time This Year
at Union
William R. Farrell, '30, was elect-
ed president of the Interfraternity
council yesterday afternoon at the
first meeting of the year in the
Union. Of the 57 fraternities on
the campus, 47 were represented.
The fraternities are divided into
five groups, each of which selects
from its own membership one of
the officers, the offices to be filled
rotating among the various groups
from year to year. This year the
president was chosen by group one.
Group two chose Jones Shannon,
'30, as secretary, and group three
named James E. Littell, '30, as
Groups four and five each elect-
ed a man to membership on the ju-
diciary committee of the council,
naming Robert Holmes, '30, and
Jack Steketee, '30, respectively.
From the nominated list of fra-
ternity faculty men, five names
were chosen. From this group one
will be selected to membership on
the judiciary committee by Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven. A
similar list of five fraternity alum-
ni,resident in Ann Arbor, wil.l be
submitted to President Ruthven
from which one will be selected for
membership. In addition to the
five student members of the execu-
tive committee two faculty and two
alumni members hold dfices for
two years, and one new member in
each group being elected each year.
Prof. Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
students, who presided at the meet-
ing yesterday, urged that the fra-
ternities select representatives to
the council who will be interested
in the work of the council and who
will attend regularly. The first
regular session of the year will be
held the first of next week.
Health Service Will
Consider Minor Ills
Extensive study of students in
relation to their susceptibility to
certain things such as hayfever,
asthma, chronic skin diseases, and
certain types of colds will be this
year's aim of the Health Service
Staff, according to Doctor Forsythe,
director of Health Service. A list
of those in the entering class who
are troubled by these irritations
was compiled during registration
and the first cases treated will be
taken from them.
This work is more complicated
than many believe. It is rather
commonly known that hay fever
and asthma are due to the irrita-
tion caused by the pollen of a few
plants. This is true. Pollen, how-
ever, is but one of the many irri-
tants. One case of which Doctor
Forsythe mentioned a student
complained of symptoms which
pointed to asthma. He was kept
under attention in Health Service
for a few days and was then dis-
charged completely cured. He re-
turned to his fraternity, but short-
ly was back at the Health Service
withathe same symptoms evident.
His case was studied, and it was
found that he was suffering from
asthma brought on by susceptibili-
ty to dog hair. The fraternity pet
had been the cause of his erita-
Thus a sufferer may be suscep-
tible to many different things-
pollen, dog hair, cat hair, wolf
hair, and even cocoa. The cause of
the patient's irritation is determin-
ed by % number of tests similar in
a way to the inoculation for small

pox. Ten or twelve small scratches
which are so shallow that they do
not draw blood are made upon the
arm of the patient. These cuts are
smeared with substance extracted
from different irritants. If no red-
dening becomes evident in the vi-
cinity of the scratch the patient is
immune to that poison.

To Be Held Sometime
After Football
Plans for a smoker to be held
some time following football season
were discussed by members of the
Engineering Council at a meeting
held last night at the Union.
John Diehl, '31E, and William
Bird, '31E, were appointed to make
arrangements for speakers, refresh-
ments, and entertainment.
Last year the Council sponsored
a Smoker that proved to be one of
the outstanding social events in the
Engineering School. More than
three hundred students attended,
and with the increased enrollment
this year a still large number is ex-
pected to attend if plans of those
in charge of the affair materialize.

He and his wife inflated a rub-

Some one dozed at the switch

the basement of the East Engineer-

liberally splattered with a sticky
mixture of asphalt and melted in-
sulating material, and the building
was filled with a bad-smelling blue
haze.. No one was injured.

World Series Record
For Strikeouts
Is Broken
Mack's Faith In Ehmke
Is Well Justified
By Triumph
By Alan J. Gould.
(By Associated Press)
WRIGLEY FIELD, Chicago, Oct.
8.-With a twirling masterpiece that
astonished the baseball world in
general and the Chicago Cubs in
particular, Howard Ehmke, long,
lean right hander, slow-balled the
Philadelphia Athletics to victory
over the National League cham-
pions today, 3 to 1, in the opening
game of the World Series.
At the age of 35, when he was
supposed to be well on the down-
ward path and a second string man
at best in the A's cast of stars,
Ehmke battled the battling Bruins
justified the unexpected faith of
the veteran Connie Mack and
brought his triumphs to a climax
by smashing the World Series rec-
ord for strikeouts.
Exciting Ninth Inning.
When the towering, angular
Ehmke, in an exciting ninth in-
hing finish, fanned pinch-hitter
Charlie Tolson for the third out
with two men on bases, he choked
off the last of three Cub threats in
dramatic fashion with his thir-
teenth strikeout victim of the day.
This surpassed the former World
Series record of 12 strikeouts made
in 1906 by Dick Walsh, the famous
White Sox iron man, who also had
the Cubs as victims on that oc-
The Cubs were game. They
fought hard and they threatened
on three separate occasions to
break through the barriers of slow
curves, floaters and a change of
side arm pace that except in the
ninth, when they had a three run
disadvantage to overcome, they
failed to show anything like a
punch in the pinch.
