son Cook, 180, L. L. B. '82, who died
in New York Wednesday afternoon,
will be held at 11 o'clock this morn-
ing in Port Chester at his home.
The University will be officially
represented at the funeral by Shir-

University, and James O. Murfin, '
Detroit regent.

Work will be discontinued at 11 to-
day for five minutes in honor of the
deceasec donor.
Mr. Cook, aged 72 at the time of;

alumni figures'having given the
University over $5,000,000 in build-
ings and funds. The 'present Law
yers' club, the Martha Cookk dor-.

for the bringing to Ann Arbor of
famous speakers on American in-
stitutions. Chief Justie Charles E.
Hughes was to have appeared un-
der this fund last winter, but was
unable to fulfill the contract be-

Educational School
Two years ago, Frank Bachman,
at that time director of the Gen-
eral Education Board, visited the
University to inspect the School of
Education. After a three day sur-
vey, he reported to the New York
office that, in his opinion, Michigan
had the best program for the prac-
tical phases of teacher training in
the country. The board then sent
four persons, all directors of teach-
er training in their respective
cities, to the University under fel-
These fellowships, given by the
General Education Board, which
was founded by John D. Rockefel-
ler in 1902, amount to $2,000 for the
receiver and $250 for each depen-
dant child in his family.
In a letter to Prof. Schorling, su-
pervisor of directed teaching in the
university high school, Mr. Favrot
general field agent of the board
said that they thought so well of
the university's plan of training

high school teachers that they had
assigned fellowship aid to two more
men, Guy Hill, director of teacher
training in the university of South
Carolina, and A. M. Jarman, direc-
tor of teacher training at the uni-
versity of Virginia, with the pos-
siblity of a third to be added later
In concluding, Mr. Favrot said, "

Entire Nation Will
Southern California Has Best
Chance to Replace Ohio
as Champion.
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, June 6--Ten defend-
ing champions and hosts of threats
to keep them from repeating their
1929 victories will aescend in force
( on Stagg Field at Chicago today for
qualifying tess in the ninth an-
nual track and field championship.
The event, the final collegiate
track and field test of the season
will be more truly national than
ever before. All sections of the
country have sent their best, in-
cluding the Pacific coast delegation
l of Southern California, Leland
Stanford and California.
Simpson Enters "100".
Interest, as usual, will be cen-
tered on the classic 100 yard dash
in which George Simpson, the Ohio
comet, will have a three fold task
before him. He not only has the
job of defending his time in his
event but will disappoint his fol-
lowers if he does not equal his great
9.4 performance of last year. His
competition will be tougher than
when he made the mark.
Against him will be Frank Wy-
koff, California winner of the cen-
tury in the Eastern Intercollegiates
last week, and is also possessor of
a 9.4 mark; Cy Leland, of Texas
Christian, Claude Bracey, the Dixie
flyer from Rice Institute, who won
the 100 and 220 in the 1928 na-
tionals; Eddie Tolan of Michigan,
world record holder at 9.5; and Hu-
bert Meier, of Iowa State, another
"'9-2"man. Simpson will face the
Ssamefield in the 220 yard dash in
which he is co-holder with Roland
Locke of Nebraska of the record of
Hurdle Races Close.
The winners of the hurdles a
year ago will have even tougher
jobs. Steve Anderson of Washitg-
ton took the 220 lows in 23.5, but
will have to do better to defeat Lee
Sentmen of Illinois. The same goes
for Dick Rockaway of Ohio State
who won the high hurdles. Sentmen
has defeated Rockaway several
times this season and has shown
consistent improvement.
Jesse Mortenson of Southern Cal-
ifornia, will be back in the javelin
but must beat a great pair of stars
in Churchill of California and Wel-
don of Iowa. Harlan Rothert of
Stanford and his running mate
Eric Krenz dominate the shot put
and discus field respectively. Roth-
ert should repeat in his favorite,
while Krenz should win the discus
in which he placed sixth last year.
Will Succeed Prof. Patterson
- in Engineering School.

Final announcements concerning
t.' e new University ruling on fra-
terr"ity rushing were issued yester-
day P fternoon at the- office of J. A.
Bursley, dean of students. The rul-
ing will go into effect in September
of .this year with the opening of
the next semester-,
The statement issued by Dean
Bursley stipulated that "hereafter,
sorority and fraternity rushing
shall not" be allowed "'before the
noon of the Saturday of Orienta-
tion week." Under this ruling, fra-.
ternities may make appointments
with freshmen at any time for en-
gagements to be kept after Satur-
day noon, September 27, 1930..
It was further stated by the
Dean that any preliminary contacts
which are merely for the purpose
of making appointments and do not
interfere with the freshman's time
in any way would be permissible,
under the new ruling. No actual
rushing will be permitted, however,
until the last day of Orientation
week, Saturday, Sept. 27, and in no
case may any fraternity interfere
with the activities of that week
while making appointments with
first year men, Dean Bursley stated.
