Important changes in the defer-
red rushing rules and initiation re-1
quirements seemed imminent last
night with the calling of a special
meeting o f the Interfraternity
Council, to be held at 7:30 o'clock
tonight in the Union, by Howard
Gould, -'32, secretary-treasurer of
the Interfraternity Council.
The meeting was caleld directly
following a session of the Judiciary
Committee of the Interfraternity
Council. Gould was given permis-
sion by this body to call the meet-
ing for tonight since President
Howard T. Worden, '32, was absent.
Gould stated that it was abso-
lutely necessary that every general
fraternity have delegates present
at the special meeting as important
changes, directly concerned with
the welfare of Michigan fraterni-
ties, would be voted upon.
'Anthony and Anna'
Praised by Actress.
Relative to Comedy cl fts "An-

morrow night at the Mendelssohn
theatre, Miss Jesse Bonstelle, direc-

stated in an interview yesterday'
that the work of St. John Ervine
contained as a rule a superfluity of
beautiful language and sparkling
humor. Miss Bonstelle praised the
choice of "Anthony and Anna" and
expressed the hope that she could
get to Ann Arbor for the opening

Track Stars Passed
by Eligibility Body
in Special Session
Coach Charles Hoyt paraded his
track stars before a special session
of tlhe eligibility committee and had
the pleasure of formal approval of
all of his athletes that were called
before the committee.,
One trackman was refused, but
he has never been eligible in three
years on the campus. His name was
withheld temporarily, and several
were subject to making up incom-
pletes into passing marks. Western
Conference eligibility rules are de-
termined by the. Big Ten officials
but each University has a special
committee to place the stamp of
formal approval on all athletes, if
they have the needed gradds.
Coach Hoyt did not ask those ofj
his squad who he knew to be al-
ready ineligible to report to the
Committee. All of. the regulars and
those who were previously declared
eligible were brought before the
committee however.
One wrestler, whose name is also
withheld, will probably be declared

Occupation of
by Parthians.

Excavation by the University of
Michigan's expedition at Seleucia-
on-the-Tigris of a third level palace
representing the earliest Parthian
occupation of the city which began
about the middle of the second cen-
tury B. C., was revealed yesterday
by Dr. Leroy Waterman, head of the
party, in the first official reports.
This work, the fourth season at
the excavation, began in September
and ended last month. According
to the report, "the main'effort of
the season was devoted to the 'Pal-
ace Block' in the heart of the city
and resulted in the clearing and de-
fining of a third palace directly be-
neath the two discovered at the
first and second levels, excavated in
previous seasons."
A fourth 'level lying beneath this
palace, which reaches back anoth-
er century and a half and belongs
to the original Hellenistic city, was
probed but nowhere fully explored.
Material recovered this season
consists of epigraphical fragments,
over one hundred new types of
Parthian pottery, and a large col-
lection of Greek bullae. Coins and
jewelry, composed of gold and
semi-precious stones, have been ob-

Randolph Adams Pays
Honor t Washington
A capacity crowd of townspeople
and students thronged Hill auditor-
ium Monday morning to attend'the
exercises held on the occasion of
the 200th anniversary of the birth
of George Washington.
Dr. Randolph G. Adams, director
of the William Clements library de-
livered the principal address, speak-'
ing on "The dignity of George
Washington." Dr. Adams, drawing
from the great fund of information'
concerning American history have
given him, painted a word picture
of Washington that suggested a_
personality of quiet dignity.

at the University of Michigan, they

I have learned speculation is merely,

I hope that the Economics depart-

I left.',
But the greatest rackets, accord-

"The only solution," Blanchard
said, "to this situation lies in the
creation of a social order in which

Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt could
have swept into the White House
as a great crusader in an over-
whelming landslide if he had chos-
