permitted to drive cars without applying for per-
mits. And now three more classes are exempted
from the ban.
Although this general trend by no means pre-
sages the complete relaxation of the ban, it never-
theless shows a more sensible interpretation of
the ruling. To prohibit to all University students,
regardless of age, a convenience which any 1.4-
year-old high school student might avail himself
of, seemed and was at first an extremely drastic
step. And from this wholesale curtailment, flag-
rant and unpunished violations resulted. The
present administration, however, has seen fit to
relax the rule more and more, seeking no doubt
a medium which will maintain the spirit of the
rule, yet permit certain students to drive.
It is to be hoped that this gradual exemption
will tend more to eliminate the frequent violations.
of the ban which have existed in the past few
years. Although the rule may seem unreasonable
to the large majority of students, their goal of
abolishing the regulation cannot be gained by its
violation. A tendency on the part of the students
to obey will gain them more in the end, and we
may hope someday to have the ruling similar to
that existing at an Eastern college, where finally
seniors who had better than average scholastic
grades were permitted to use their cars for any
and all purposes.

The Daily has places on the staff for four or
five students wh 10 odnot have enough time to do
full-time work, but who would like to write re-
views 'in the fields of drama, literature, music or
art. Students who might be interested in this work
are asked to visit the office of the editorial director

The two latest additions to the Modern Li-
brary Series are at hand-Willa Cather's "Death
Comes for The Archbishop" (No. 191) and "A
History of The Borgias" (No. 192) by Frederick
Baron Corvo. The first book is well-known to the
American reading public. The latter is a fascinat-
ing account of that interesting family, prominent
in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The Modern Library, incidentally, offers an
excellent opportunity for the student to start his
own library. Publications for the next four months
have already been announced. In October: Bal-
zac's "Droll Stories" and Six Plays by Corneille
and Racine. November: Casuals of the Sea" by
William McFee, and "The Travels of Marco Polo,"
edited, with an introduction, by Manuel Komroff.
December: "Tono Bungay" by H. G. Wells, arnl
"The Sex Problem in Modern Society" by John
Francis McDermott. January: "Crime and Punish-
ment" by Dostoyevsky, and "The Magic Moun-
tai'' by Thomas Mann. All priced moderately at
95 cents each. In addition, three books have
already been issued in the Giant Series, texts too
long to be published in the usual format. They
are 'War and Peace" by Tolstoi; "The Life and
Letters of Samuel Johnson','," by Boswell; ad
"'Les Miserables," by Victor Hugo. These cost $i.

For local "New Yorker" fans, Minton, Balch
announce the publication of "Now You're Going
to Buy a Book," a book of drawings by Helen .
Hokinson. Now that all the publishers have gone
on record that there is no depression in the world
of books, it is quite fitting that Miss Hokinson's
work should appear just in time to epitomize their
optim ismr.

Freshmen and
The Fraternities

Uppermiost in the minds of most fraternity
men at this time is the prospect of this year's
rushing campaign -the number of men to b
pledged and the methods by which to do it. And
naturally, the regulations of the Interfraternity
Council will be read for the first time by many
students. This measure, important though it is to
fraternities, is doubly important to the freshman
the entering class of ,r935.
Although we hold brief for the present system,
as detailed in a rather explicit manner in th
Constitution of the Interfraternity Council, w
recognize that the system will at least be in force
for the remainder of this year, and hence th
cooperation of all fraternities, as well as the fresh-
men, will be necessary in order to give the new
order a fair trial. Any slight hint as to violation
by one house will cause many others to do the
same, and the rules will fall as quickly as they
were erected, with fatal results. For this reason
it is vitally important that every fraternity on the
campus obey the regulations to the very letter
as any deviation from the proper course will prob-
ably result in an even niore cut-throat rushing
season than existed under last year's methods'
For this reason, we take this opportunity to
announce a policy of cooperation to the fullest
extent with the Interfraternity Council in the en-
forcement of the rushing regulations. Complete
publicity in The Daily will be given to all viola.
tions of the rules, with respect to the individual
as well as the organizations concerned. This is
the only manner in which underhand rushing tac-
tics can be combatted, and we shall welcome every
opportunity to assist the Council in its work.
- The whole-hearted support of all houses will
be essential this fall. Disobedience of the rules
will net them .nothing more than publicity and
punishment, since it will be impossible to benefit
financially from a violation of the order. The same
holds true for the freshmen. The period of transi-
tion is the time during which the financial burden
will be felt most by the houses, and that period
will be over as soon as the work of the first
semester has been concluded. The system which
will be in force this fall was adopted almost unani-
mously by the members of the Council upon the
passage of the ruling by the Senate Committee,
and it will be their duty to uphold it until they
find a more feasible substitute.

Premier stage attractions will be added to Michi-
gan theater programs this year, under a system that
will assure only the best acts for student patrons, it
has been announced by Jerry Hoag, manager.
Whenever available, "headliners" will be booked
in addition to screen Teatures, Hoag says. If it is
impossible to get an outstanding act, none will be
t presented. Thus only the best entertainers will be
- seen. Possibilities are Waring's Pennsylvanians, Duke
Ellington, Eric Zardo and other well-known names.
Fifi D'Orsay, Don Cummings, and Carl Freed's com-
edy orchestra are already signed for shows soon.
Harry Langdon in person will appear September
28. continuing to the following Wednesday, with
I Joan Crawford in "This Modern Age" on the screen.
Langdon will bring his company
1'with him in an act reported to be
* * uproariously funny.
Langdon's fame in the movies
extends back many years. Coming
to the screen lots with a vaude-
ville reputation, with his two-reel
comedies he gained immediate
popularity. Shortly before the ad-
""' vent of the talkies he graduated
. into feature-length comedies, and
.he has continued into the articu-
,O4 cwt late films.
The Michigan orcnestra this year probably will be
a modern rhythm band, peppier than the usual
vaudeville theater orchestra. If it proves a satisfac-
tory accompaniment to the stage acts it will be re-
tained permanently, Hoag says.
At the Michigan...
Constance Bennett and Ben Lyon feature the
attraction at the Michigan for the first part of this
week-"Bought." A rather sordid drama, it leaves
a bitter taste in one's mouth, and is not what you
would want to see for an evening's entertainment
if looking solely for entertainment. The acting is
excellent, if that is what you want to see, the bitter
taste being the fault of the story rather than that of
the actors. An excellent cast, admirably directed,
you'd really better not miss it.
At the Majestic...
At the Majestic, we have until Wednesday Chic
Sales, Walter Huston and several other notables in

With the opening of school,' the authorities in
charge of the auto ban enforcement announced
that three new causes for issuing permits had
been recognized. These three classes will be con-
stituted of students that are (z) over 28 years
old, (2) students who are taking less than 5 hours
work each semester, and (3) students who have
the rank of teaching assistant in the University.
When first introduced at the University, the
auto ban was extremely strict, and exceptions to
the rule were few. But under the administration
of the Student Council, violations were many.
