fo Coming Year Foreseen by
s. d Vladimir Timoshenko.
With the rapid growth of frater-
nities on the Michigan campus
around 1910 there became a grow-
ing need for the existence of a self-
governing body to co-ordinate these
At the advice of the ente com-
mittee, who prior t )Ihs time had
investigated fraterni' y P o u s i n g
conditions and cases arising out of
fraternity mal-adjustment; the In-
terfratcrnity Council was organized
Meet to Organize.
The first meeting took place on
January 12 of that year. Plans of
organization were formulated and
a committee appointed to draw up
a constitution to be presented in
printed form at the next meeting.
The purpose of the Interfraterni-
ty Council as laid down by the first
constitution was stated as, "an or-
ganization to promote interests of
the University of Michigan and of
the several fraternities represented
therein; to insure co-operation
among said fraternities; and be-
tween them and the college au-
thorities to the end that the condi-
tions of the fraternities and their
relations with the college may be
Since that time the Interfrater-.
ity Council has advanced rapidly.
At the first meeting all national
fraternities which were represented
on the campus were taken into
'membership, and subsequently all
local fraternities and all other na-
tional fraternities established since
that date have been admitted as
well. At present the roll includes
58 general fraternities.
The by-laws were drawn up on a
democratic bas~is, each fraternity
having one vote. Two delegates
were allowed from each house, one
to be a junior and other to be the
fraternity presidenL This is still
in force, except that in order that
the junior delegate be eligible for
election to an Interfraternity coun-
cil office he must attend three of
the five regular meetings.
The council formulates all the
rushing rules for fraternities, all
eligibility rules as to initiation, and
controls all matters of'a general
character necessary to the organ-
izations in whose interest it was
created. All rules of the council,
if passed by the Senate committee,
are to be enforced by the council,
and all punishments placed by
them are backed by the University.
Draw Up Rushing Rules.
This year a great deal of con-
structive work has been done in
drawing up the new deferred rush-
ing rules which become effective
next fall: Six students appointed
by :mean Bursley drew uri the tenta-
tive plans and these were taken
over and modified this fall by the
council; the new rules have now
been passed in their finished form
and fraternities will adhere to them
with the beginning of the first se-
mester of 1931-32.
A handbook of fraternities is al-
so to be published next fall by the
fnterfraternity Council which will
contain the names of all fraterni-
ties, their location on the campus,
a cut of their badge, their chapter
roll, and a list of members.
Each year two delegates are sent
to the National Interfraternity
Council convention, these delegates
usually being the president and
secretary of the local council.
The present officers of the coun-
cil are James Ward, president, Jack
Dobbin, secretary, James Houstou,
treasurer, and William Wessels and
Dean Esling, representatives.

The present depression period is
cyclic and will be followed by pros-
perity this year, he assured.
"We may expect a very satisfac-
tory and continuing revival within
the ensuing year," Timoshenko said,
"since production during the last
six months has been going on at
a very low level. In fact, present
production figures indicate that we
are far below the normal replace-
