judiciary committee of the Inter-

cers of the Council officially know
of no violations of the rules except
that of making dates in advance
for the concentrated rushing per-.
iod. The dates were declared null

Appearing for the second time in

Russian chorus will give a concert
at 8:15 o'clock tomorrow evening

The Russian chorus, pronounced
by critics as the finest organization
of its kind in the world, is com-
posed of expatriated soldiers who
have remained together ever since
1917. The chorus has toured near-
ly all over the world and its con-
certs have run into the thousands.
Tomorrow night, in addition to
the works that have brought them
fame, the chorus will offer a num-
ber of songs never before heard in
Ann Arbor.#
Following the concert, a reception
will be held for the chorus in the I

passed at the, last meeting of the
University council providing for the
appointment of a committee to
consider , possible revision of the
administration questionnaire which
seeks to learn of the amount of
time spent by faculty members..
The resolution, one of two out-
lined by the Council, was passed
as the means of settling the contro-
versy betwelen the administration
and the. Literary College in regard
to the questionnaire. The second
resolution states the belief of the
Council in the value of such a ques-
tionnaire, pd instructs the form
to be filled out or the information
be communicated to the adminis-
tration in some other manner.
Revealed Last Night.
Passage of these resolutions did
not come to light until last night,
thus giving a new angle to the mat-
ter. The -resolutions unanimously
passed, closed the incident, it was
officially stated.
Along with the discussion center-
ing on the Council communication,
the literary college gave its approv-
al to t h e current examination
schedule, and at the same time
announced that a permanent
schedule was being drawn up.
This schedule, Dean John R. Ef-
finger, of the literary college, said,
is so designed as to work automati-
cally. It is being prepared by Dr.
Daniel L. Rich, director of classifi-
cation, and Prof. John F. Shepard,
of the psychology department. The
nature of the new plan will not, be
made pu ,'.ie until approved by the
Literary College.
Opposes Questionnaire.
Opposition to the administratioml
qluestionnaire, which, among other
things, sought to learn the maner
in which faculty members of the
college were apportioning t h e i r
time in respect to the number of
hours spent in preparation of class-
es and lectures, student conferen-
ces, personal research, faculty and
committee meetings and other de-,
tails, was voiced in a resolution
adopted Jan. 7. The resolution in-
structed the delegates of the col-

raise the question/before that body.

Cap Night, Track Meet Featured
on Program Beginning
May 6.

Entertainment plans for Spring
Homecotning, to be held on May 6,
7, and 8 were drawn up yesterday
at a meetingof the Homecoming
committee which is composed of
student leaders, Joseph A. Bursley,
dean of students, T. Hawley Tap-
ping, of the alumni asosciation.
Cap night will be the first feature
on the program. At this time
the freshmen class burns its 'pots';
at a bon fire built in Sleepy Hol-
low. This will be held on Friday,
dVay 6.
A dual track meet with Jllinoi,
will be the main attraction on Sat-
urday. On the same day the Union
will hold a fathers and sons ban-
quet and the League will hold a
mothers and daughters luncheon.
Spring Homecoming, which was
held for the first time last year, is
sponsored by the Union. Its pur-
pose, according to Hugh R. Conk-
lin, '32E, Union president, is to give
the returning alumni an opportun-
ity to see the University under nor-
mal operating circumstances, some-
thing that they cannot see at Fali
Homecoming because of the excite-
ment of a football weekend.

'Arbor representative of the Hearst,

First Introduced by Nye
in December; Passed
by Committee.

A bill prepared from a draft writ-
ten by Prof. James K. Pollock, of
the Political Science department,
providing for regulation of expenses
in all Federal ele'tions, is to be vot-
ed on in the United States Senate
within the next two months, it has
been learned.
The 441was first introduced by
Senator Nye, of North Dakota, on
December 19, 1931. The Senate
committee on campaign expendi-
tures, to which the bill was refer-
red, made its report on December
21, recommending the new bill in
its entirety.
A part of this report, as set forth,
in the Congressional Record for De-
cember 21, refers tp the bill as
"based upon a draft prepared at
the request of the chairman byI
Prof. James K. Pollock, of the Uni-
versity of Michigan."1
It is understood that the new
bill now awaiting consideration on
the floor of the Senate is the most
complete and comprehensive regu-
lation of the subject ever presented
to Congress.

a good deal of attention.
\ In one of these, the Senate
directed Attorney- General Mitchell
to investigate conditions on the
islands which havc expressed them-
selves in an assault upon the wife
cif a naval officer and the subse-
quent killing of one of the men
charged with the attack.
Prohibition hearings on beer were
continued before a Senate com-
mittee and coming from them,Sen-
ator Brookhart, Republican, Iowa,
charged the press was giving too
much attention to the claims and
agitations of the wets. He said an
investigation was likely unless the.
situation was remedied.
Before the committee, Dr. Wil-
liam Gerry Morgan, former presi-
dent of the American Medical
Association, advocated 4 per cent
beer, asserting it would help' condi-
tions generally.
The House took up the $2,000,000,-
000 reconstruction corporation mea-
sure only today but the Senate has
had it under consideration for sev-
eral days and worked late in its
effort to get a vote.
Mindful of their promise to pass
the economic rehabilitation bill to-
day, the Senators kept their seats,
as opponents of the proposal did
most of the talking. Senator Blaine,
Republican, Wisconsin, assailed it
in a lengthy speech.
One of Blaine's objections to it
was that it would not provide relief
for farmers and the Senate added
$50,000,000 to the measure for farm
Other economic measures are ex-
pected to follow disposal of the bill
which President Hoover has earn-
estly urged to help business.


Norman Thomas Tells of Conditions
Among American Working Classes

By Norman Kraft .
Extraordinary contrasts between
the living conditions of the rich,
and poor; 10,000,000 unemployed,,

tion indecently housed.

huts unfit to be the habitations of
animals, one fourth of the popula-

That was the picture of how
America lives painted by Norman
Thomas, head of the American
socialist party, in his lecture at
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre last
night. A capacity crowd attended
the lecture which was transferred
at the last minute from Natural
Science auditorium and even then
hundreds were turned away.
"In 1928 I would have needed to
explode the myth that America was
living well," Thomas said. "I would
have needed to point 'out that, al-

ards were higher than those of any
nation in the world and higher than
any in history, we do not live on
