Names of Nominees Withheld by
Judiciary Committee to
Suppress Politics.
Plan Proposed Last Thursday
Will Be Put Before Body
for Consideration.
- Representatives of Michigan's
general fraternities will meet at
7:30 o'clock tonight in the Union
to elect a president of the Inter-
fraternity Council and to vote offi-
cially on the new plan of deferred
pledging which was proposed at the
emergency meeting held last Thurs-
The president will be chosen by
the body from two nominees that
have already been picked by the
Judiciary Committee. No announce-
ment has been made by the com-
mittee as to the names of the can-
didates since it is believed that
politics will not play as much part
in the elections if the names are
withheld until the meeting.
The new rushing plan that will
be re-considered tonight was drawn
up by a committee of students ap-
pointed by Howard T. Worden, '32.
president, from the Council body
it proposes to defer rushing during
Orientation week only and to defer
pledging until the third week of the
school year.
'Hot Boxing' Eliminatetd.
The actual pledging would be
done throuxgh the office of the dean
of students in the same manner
that it was conducted this year.
"Hot Boxing" would thus theoret-
ically be entirely eliminated as it is
under the present system.
The plan also provides that all
pledges who do not receive a schol-
astic average of at least 11 hours
and-11 honor points at the end of
the first semester be immediately
de-pedged and not be eligible to
affQ anyfraterfrity'
onn yave made a cer-
tatn~rxqired number of hours and
as many honor points.
The comitree which drew up
the plan were assisted by faculty
men and prominent alumni, it was
announced at the last meeting. If
1he pla4 ia passed at the next two
metungs of the Council, it will go
to the Jwudeiary committee for ap-
proval bnd then to the Senate
Committee on Student Affairs..
If passed by the latter body, it
was understood, the measure will
become the official rushing rules
for next year.1
11 Per Cent Wage Cut for City
W rkets Major Factor
in Economy.
The Conmon council, meeting ds
a comm1tt!r of the whole, last night
adopte an operating budgetyof
$_78665.73, for :the coming year.
ThG'is figure is more. than $90,000
loWer than last year's budget of
$569,175.35, and comes as a result
of weeks of effort on the part of the
budget committee and the Ann Ar-
bor Taxpay rs' league to bring ex-
penditures down in response to the
t ductlon of income.
Salary cuts averaging 15 per cent
for all city employees contributed
largely to the saving. Other econ-
omy measures such as reduction in
sie of many street light bulbs, re-
=.duction of park and street main-
tenance costs to a minimum, and
general paring of equipment and
m~aterialsallowances were a $so

Of the total fund, $45,242 is for
general administration, $45,313 for
public works, $30,701 for sanitation
and health, $182,380 for city funds,
including fire, police, poor relief,1
streets and parks;$2,360 for a spe-
cial purchase of property on Dewey
street, and $172,669.73 for special
funds which are largely interest on
bonds and other fixed charges.

Freshman Team Defeats Adelphi
for Fourth Consecutive
Debate Victory.
Whether University paternalism
been argued by students for years,
was decided in the negative for one
group last night when Alpha Nu's
freshmen debating team defeated
the Adelphi first year men for the
fourth year in succession in their
annual inter-society debate. Prom-
inent campus authorities w e r e
quoted by both teams.
Quoting sorority presidents as de-
claring their activities unhampered
by University supervision of clos-
ing hours and other restrictions,
the negative team composed of
Robert S. Ward, Walter E. Morrison,
and Charles B. Brown son, won the
verdict from Prof. Floyd K. Riley
of the speech department and the
first leg on the new inter-society
The Adelphi squad, Alexander
Hirschfeld, Abraham Zwerdling, and
John Mockle, opposed the present
policy as harmful to individual ini-
tiative, injurious to personal devel-
opment and unnecessarily compli-
Situation Not Dangerous.
The negative's defense of the Un-
versity policy, basedon observations
of President Alexander G. Ruthven
and Dean Joseph Bursley, contend-
ed that the present situation was
not dangerous, but merely a tide
of excitement, over an alleged in-
justice, and pointed out individual
examples of policy in the auto ban
and house rulings, saying they were
justified in the light of the Univer-
sity's responsibility.
The affirmative pictured fresh-
men pushing peanuts around, Ferry
field during Orientation week as a
serious evil; the negative, on the
other hand stated that a 20-year-
old student was big enough to take
1 care of his landlady.
The debate was handled in the
main as a serious discussion of a
campus issue, but chairman D. Rob-
ert Thomas, '32, Alpha Nu presi-
dent, was forced to call for order
more than once.
WASHINGTON, May 10. - (/P) -
Another wealthy and socially prom-
inent woman was listed tonight as
a possible victim-to the extent of
$100,000 or more-or the suave rep-
resentations of portly Gaston B.
Only a few hours after he had

recreation at Patterson lake.
Headed by Norman Daniels, '32Ed,
captain of the 1931-32 basketball
team, 60 students with the familiar
collection buckets will sell tags
throughout the day in an effort to
raise $2,000, the amount which it
is hoped will be obtained by the
campus sale alone, This figure
represents a substantial reduction
from last year's total of $3,000.
The appeal today is the twelfth
in as many years. The camp was
first started in 1-921 by Louis C.
Reimann, '16, then secretary of the
Presbyterian student work in Ann
Arbr. It is one of two of its kind
in the United States, the other be-
ing maintained by the Student
Christian association of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania.
Camp sessions are divided into
two-week periods. The first will
begin next month and the last will
be held in August. The present
site of the camp was secured in
1924 by a gift of land from M. A.
Ives and H. B. Earhart. It is man-
aged by a committee of seven fac-
ulty members, the president of the
S t u d e n t Christian association,
which sponsors the camp, and the
director, George Alder, Grad. Prof.
F. N. Menefee, of the engineering
college, is chairman of the board.
Included in the $2,000 to be ob-
tained in the drive will be numer-
ous contributions from fraternities
and sororities and other student or-
ganizations. The amount from this
source, however, is below that of
previous years, Daniels said last
Campers at the lake this summer
will be selected by 19 social welfare
and charity organizations in and
around Detroit.
Police Shootings in Labor Riot
Scored at Civil Liberties
Union Hearing.
Antagonistic criticism against the
Ford Motor company and police
officials of Detroit and Dearborn in
connection with the recent shoot-
ings at the Ford factory gates was
voiced last night at a public hear-
ink in the Ann Arbor high school
spnsored by the Ann Arbor Civil
Liberties Union.
"Henry Ford, formerly extremely
sympathetic toward labor, has been
converted to capitalistic ideas by
his success," charged Judge Patrick
O'Brien, speaking for the Detroit
Civil Liberties Union. Maurice Su-
gar, graduate of the law school
here, represented the International
Labor Defense. Sugar, who is attor-
ney for the "hunger marchers" in
the incident, denounced the Detroit
newspapers for a "cowardly atti-
tude brought on by domination of
the Detroit financial interests."
All four major Detroit dailies
charged the leaders of the march-
ers with cowardice in leading on a
mob into a position it had not fore-
seen and then ahandoning it sav

In recognition of forty years of
campus dramatic activity, Comedy
club will open a three day run to-
morrow night with A. A. Milne's
"Meet the Prince" at the Mendel-
ssohn theatre.
Alan Handley has been chosen to
play the lead role of the Prince.
Handley took the part of Pctruchio
in play production's recent show,
"The Taming of the Shrew." Ruth
Ann Aake, well known on the cam-
pus for her direction of the Cos-
mopolitan Club's series of interna-
tional night programs, is directing
the play.
A special fixed price scale of fifty
cents for the entire house has b,-en
arranged for this production ac-
cording to Robert C. McDonald, '32,
president of the organization for
the current year.
"Meet the Prince" is a continen-

with the strange predicament of
a husband who leaves his wife,
changes his name and later be-
comes a prince. The main action

Qualities Needed in Merchandise
MNnaging to Be Discussed at
Second Vocational Talk.
Michael Dowley, merchandising
manager of the J. L. Hudson comn-
pany of Detroit, will speak to men
and women students of the Univer-
sity at 8 o'clock tonight in the Un-
ion ballroom in the second of the
series of vocational talks being
sponsored by the Student Council.
Dowley will discuss the qualities
eded in an individual who in-
ends to go into the field of mer-
chandise managing and will explain
the possibility of graduating sen-
iors obtaining work in this line.
According to John Denler, '32,
Student Councilman in charge of
the lecture, the series of talks is in-
tended primarily for students who
desire vocational guidance. Men
have been chosen from four general
fields of business to come to Ann
Arbor in order that a cross section
of opportunities in the industrial
world may be presented.
The first talk of the' series was
given two weeks ago by J. T. Shae-
for, personnel manager of the Bell
Telephone company, who told the
seniors that, being college men, they
would have a much better chance
securing employment with his com-
pany than some men who had only
a high school or grammar school

Wet Leading in Ohio
(By 1hc Associated Press)
President Hoover and three
contenders for the Democratic
presidential nomination-Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt, George White
and Spea er Garner- -were the
gainers in yesterday's presidential
primaries in Ohio and West Vir-
ginia and the state and county
conventions in Tennessee, Wy-
oming and Texas.
Before the votes were counted,
Gov. White, Ohio's favorite son,
was assured of 45 of the state's 52
Democratic delegates to the na-
tional convention. His complete
slate had opposition from only one
delegate candidate favoring Newton
D. Baker and six pledged to Peter
Witt of Cleveland, but in reality
supporters of Alfred E. Smith.
Gov. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray of
Oklahoma, had no opposition for
the Buckeye state's preference vote,
which does not bind the delegates.
Roosevelt Favored.
In West Virginia, Gov. Roosevelt,
now leading the Democratic nom-
ination field with 345 pledged and
claimed convention votes, has been
picked by state organiz'ation lead-
ers to win most if not all of the
state's 16 delegates. Roosevelt and
Murray contested for the prefer-
ence vote which, like in Ohio, does
not control the delegation's cho"
of a presidential nominee.
Fifty-one of Ohio's 55 Republican
delegates' were pledged to President
Hoover and were without oppos$ -
tion. The four others were contested
by a quartet pledged to former
Sen. France of Maryland. The lat-
ter, with Mayor Jacob S. Coxey of
Massillon, and Olin J. Ross, Colum-
bus attorney, were on the prefer-
ence ballot.
