bers of the judiciary committee of
the Interfraternity council, five are
students, including the three offi-
cers; the other members are two
faculty and two alumni. While we
have no especial quarrel with the
personnel of this committee, inas-
much as it derives its powers from
the Interfraternity council and it.
represents a heterogeneity of in-
terests, a satisfactory vote to indict
a house or a freshman for infrac-
tion of the rules would be extreme-
ly difficult under very, easy circum-
stances. Furthermore, the range of
penalties which t h e committee
could inflict upon recalcitrant
freshmen is limited and entirely
unofficial. The same is partially
true of penalties for houses, though
by the nature of the exactions,
such as social probation, the mor-
al weight of some official support
by the administration is obtained.
We doubt, therefore, the potency
and the ability of the judiciary
committee under the present ar-
rangement, despite the fact that
they are especially charged with
enforcement, either to impose pen-
alties compelling the respect of
freshmen, upon whom the bulk of
responsibility for enforcement of
the plan must fall, or to obtain an
assured vote in favor of inflicting
a penalty upon any infracting
But the basic factor in opposition
to a successful operation of the
project is the lack of an enterpris-
ing co-operative spirit among the
houses. If the Interfraternity coun-
cil represented a concerted opinion
of the majority of fraternities, if
that body was a source of effective
and potent influence, if it had a
reputation for any achievement or
efficient and earnest action, we
would be compelled to alter our esti-
mate of this project's enforcibility
at the hands of the judiciary com-
mittee, the abilities and destiny of
which are almost indistinguishably
bound up with the Interfraternity
representation. An examination of
the "support" of the plan by the
fraternities and their lack of in-
terest in it reveals how listless and
undependable t h e i r cooperative
backing would be. This year's of-
ficers were elected with special
powers to bring before the council
a deferred rushing plan because
they were deemed the only ones
who would be sufficiently aggres-
sive in dealing with the measure.
Last Monday's vote was taken with
a bare quorum present; roughly
three-quarters of one-half of the
houses represented in the council
voted in favor of the project. At
no time has deferred rushing a-
roused any other emotion or atten-
tion from that body than an oblig-
ing and resigned acceptance of the
inevitable trend of events.
In the light of such circumstan-
ces, we take our hat off to the
group of men who blithely hope
that they can so enforce this legis-
lation as to place every freshman
in the right fraternity with a min-
imum of hard feelings. We admire
their courage in accepting the onus
of all the police work, the prosecut-
ing, the penalizing and especially
the disappointments d arnc,

that it is authentic to the last

this as a cheap method of popular-

it certainly makes the issue worth

A Review by William J. Gorinan.
Mr. Gabrilowitsch last night con-
tinued his habit of granting Ann
Arbor cautious, notgparticuarly
inspired, concerts: the programs
very conventionally constructed,
very competently rendered. One's
thinking about him and his orches-
tra almost tends to stop there. This
is unfortunate; because, of course,
he is a great musician at times.
The repetition of the Rachman-
inoff Symphony in E Minor, which
was the only large symphonic work
in the last May Festival, was par-
ticularly unforunate. The impres-
sario's rationale of these things is
beyond me. Rachmaninoff is a
competent re-writer of the Rus-
sian School, he is something of a
hangover. To a considerable extent
he reminisces about the emotions
that the Russians (particularly
Tchaikovsky since Rachmaninoff is
more the cosmopolitan than the
nationalist) expressed. His music,
then, tends to lack the hysteria of
Tchaikovsky, being more ordered,
more perspicuous. But it also lacks
the genuineness and the passionate
sincerity of Tchaikovsky, being very
often ponderous, labored, slow of
statement. One in particular notes
the elegant sentimentality of the
elegiac slow movement, the very
conscious lyricism of it. Then, too,
the very obvious borrowing of
structure for his last movement
from Tchaikovsky's last movement
in the Fourth Symphony. Withal,
Rachmaninoff is a smooth writer
of pleasant music. My only point
is that one hardly cares to have a
contemporary work in an old idiom
repeated in two successive sym--
phony concerts when Ann Arbor
only hears three full symphony
concerts a year. The tendency is
perhaps to stay away.
Mr. Gabrilowitsch gave the sym-
phony a very lucid, lyrical read-
ing. The orchestra, undoubtedly bc
cause of the- insistent demandsI
made of them to play the "Musco-
vites," are sensitive to the idiom:
the eccentric ilogic, the quick
sw,lls, etc.
The second haf of the progra
was short. Vaghan - Williams'
"Norfolk Rhapsody" is an effective
piece of atmospheric music, very
subtly scored. The deftness with
which Gabrilowitsch produced and
blended the colors in this work
shows a progress in the efliciency
of the orchestra he is slowly build-
ing. The Casella orchestration of
Balakirev's great stumbling block
for pianistic virtuosos one may or
may not like. It closes a conven-
tional program plausibly.
No chamber music ensemble in
recent years has become so firmly
established within such a brief
space of time as has the Musical
Art Quartet, which comes to the
Mendelssohn Theatre the night of
December 3, in the second concert
in the series sponsored by the
Chamber Music Society. The per-
sonnel of the quartet again shows
the extraordinary persistence of the
old Kneisel Quartet as an influence
in American Chamber Music. Sas-
cha Jacobsen, the first violinist,
began his studies in the famous
class of the late Leopold Auer at
Petrograd; but coming to America
he studied under Franz Keise
Paul Bernard, second vioinist, and

Louis Kaufman, the viola player,
were also students of Kneisel. Miss
Marie Roemaet-Rosanoff is a stud-
ent of Pablo Casals.
The quartet, beginning soundly in
the classics, later establishect a
reputation as interpreters of mod-
ern chamber music and are now
one of the most popular ensembles
in the country. Samuel Chotzinoff,
of the World, even went so far as
to remark that: "The best way to
enjoy chamber music is to partied-
pate in playing it. Failing that, the
next best thing is to hear it played
by the Musical Art Quartet. Mr.
Felix M. Warburg, famous collector,
two seasons ago presented the
quartet with four Stradivarii. The
program announced for the local
concert follows:

Night Editor-JOHN D. REINDE]
When the deferred pledging pro-
posal was first introduced upon
the campus last year by the dean's
office, acting through the Senati
committee on student affairs, The
Daily opposed the plan both in
principle and intention as being
inimical to the best relations be-
tween houses and freshmen. Nov
we are confronted by the Interfra.
ternity council bearing a plan o
deferred rushing limiting the time
and places at which freshman
rushees may be approached by a
fraternity, the length of timea
freshman may be inside a frater-
nity house, the number of meal
he may eat there, the conditions
under which bids may be offered
and the penalties to be inflicted
upon any liouse or any freshman
that violates the code.
Leaving aside any discussion of
the principle and motives back of
deferred rushing at Michigan, the
immediate issue at hand is the en-
forcibility of the plan as incorpor-
ated into the constitution and by-
laws of the Interfraternity council
After the Senate committee had
passed its ruling which stated in
effect that freshmen could not be
pledged until the second semester
and could not be initiated until
their scholarship had attained a
certain standard, the dean's office
directed its energies toward evolv-
ing a plan of rushing which would
contain the mechanics for elimin-
ating evils in the old cut-throat
system. A committee of students
working under this supervision
drew up a proposal which embod-I
ied the rudiments of the one finally
adopted by t h e Interfraternity
body. It provided for open houses
during an orientation period near
the close of the first semester, a
regulated and limited number of
dates, and an impersonal machine
operated by the dean's office to de-
termine which 'freshmen could be
pledged by which houses. This fall
the house presidents were unoffi-
