Group Tries to Make
Examinations Easier
A cribbing service for Michi-

near future.
The Princeton Alumni Weekly
yesterday said that an organiza-

would "raise college cribbing to
the position of a major indus-
try," according to the Associated
Press, by supplying undergrad-
uates with a four-year set of
essays for $100 cash.

Pianist Are Planned
for Grid Party.
Jack Rosevear, prominent dance
pianist and specialty players, will
feature the music of Ray Gorrell's
orchestra, of Detroit, which will
play for the Gridiron dance Friday
night, it was learned yesterday.
The Gorrell band, which is under
contract with Sigma Delta Chi,
professional journalistic fraternity
which is sponsoring the dance, to
play from 9:30 until 2:00 o'clock,
is reputed to be among the best or-
ganizations of its type in the Mid-
dle West.
Members of the ticket committee
for the dance were elated last
night over the rapidity with which
tickets for the affair have been
sold. In spite of the fact that the
sale was restricted to an invitation
list of campus leaders until the ma-
jority of those on the list had re-
sponded, it was said yesterday that
the only tickets still remaining for
sale were a few which members of
the committee had not yet checked
in to George A. Stauter, chairman
of the committee.
