DIAGONAL
Floating Power Maria.
Mosher's Baby.
Cautious Union.
By Barton Kae
Maria Abbot, Alpha Phi freshman
and daughter of Waldo, is the girl
who has just missed you several
tilhes with her tannish De Soto
roadster. Maria, who calls herself
Mahree, had a cutout on her auto-
mobile last year and after missing
you would use this instrument as a
parting gesture. Finally people
complained and the police took the
cutout away.
Incidentally here is a warning to
people who have heretofore climbed
high trees when they saw-Maria ap-
proaching in her De Soto. She turn-
ed it in yesterday for a nice brand
new Plymouth roadster. It is tan
and it has shiny red wheels. It is
faster and has better brakes than
the old car so pedestrians will have
to be just a little more careful.
Last week, Maria went into the
Hut, sat down with a certain young
man, danced, but did not eat. When
the young man paid his bill he was
charged 25 cents extra. Mike Fin-
gerle was consulted. High school
girls often dance in the afternoon,
he said, but do not buy. The waiter
evidently thought that Maria was
one of these. The young man got
his quarter back, and Miss Abbot
drove away in her tan roadster.

Dr. Margaret Bell, of the Health
Service, has gone Hollywood. Yes-
terday a photographer with a mo-
tion picture camera turned the
Health Service upside-down so that
Dr. Bell would have a film t show
when she lectures.
Several students, probably wait-
ing in line to obtain excuses from
classes, were shanghaied to act in
the picture. They were photograph-
ed entering the building, securing
their cards from the main desk, and
sitting in the-aiting room. Dr.
Bell had all of the doctors flash
their lights with alarming rapidity
and the actors reported to the var-
ious rooms. The efficiency of the
Health Service has been tried and
found not wanting-in the movies.

In spite of a remark made in
The Daily a, fe day ago about the
baby cairiage in front of 1Mosher
hall, the carriage is still there. I
saw it Thursday, empty but care-
fully lined with blue-blankets and
fluffy pillows. Dean Alice Lloyd,
what do you think of that?
The Sigma Chi house, particular-
ly noted for its Harry Begley, Wil-
liam Elliot, James North, and the
Spoils System, has inaugurated a
new form of.hell week. Last year,
they forced their pledges to march
about the house shouting "3 o'clock
and all is well" every 15 minutes.
(Of course, if it was 4 o'clock, they
called "4 o'clock and all is well.")
As a result, the pledges got very lit-
tle sleep and the neighbors also got
very little sleep. The police finally
stepped in and put a stop to the
whole affair. The Sigma Chi hell
week now consists of masquerade
parties and frequent encounters
with Old Betsy, the house paddle.

Dr W. D. Henderson, director of
the University extension bureau,
whatever that is, told a group of
senior engineers the other day that,
if the plight of some fraternities is
as serious as The Daily says, they
should not worry so much about
deferred rushing rules but should
kill some of their oversized dogs for
food.
At my house, we've done that al-
ready, Dr. Henqerson.
What would you do if you were
leaving on a train for New York
and someone handed you a box
containing a white rabbit, which
factyou didn't know until after the
train had started?
This was the predicament in
which John Smiley Marshall, of
Rolls oolumn fame, found himself
recently. Although there may or
may not be train rules against car-
ryiig pets on trains, he took the
rabbit all the way to New York and
back again, and it is now thriving
over at the Ielta Phi house on car-
rots and dry toast. Originally chris-
tened George, it is now more cor-
rectly called Georgeina.

"HE new fraternity plan, which would defer
rushing during Orientation week and pledging
during the first two weeks of the fall term, has
completed the first circuit of its three-lap mara-
thon.
Proposed three weeks ago, the plan was passed
by a unanimous vote'of the Interfraternity Council
last week and passed a second time, again unani-
mously, last Wednesday night.
Under Article X of the rushing rules, the new
plan has only to be approved by the Senate Com-
mittee on Student,-Affbirs to become a part of the
Interfraternity Council constitution and to go into
effect next fall. It would seem that the marathon
is almost over, but there are obstacles yet to over-
tome. Dean Joseph A. Bursley has indicated that
the Interfraternity Council's decision may not
carry much weight with the Senate Committee,
unless it is first approved by the Judiciary com-
mittee of the Council and indorsed by a group of
alumni who are working on a relief plan of their
own.
Since the financial stability of fraternities de-
pends upon this plan's going into effect next year,
the three bodies should meet as soon as possible
to act upon the measure.
According to Edwin T. Turner, president of
the Council, the alumni group will convene next
Tuesday. The alumni could be of real assistance
to the fraternities by accepting the plan without
inserting any technical revisions, since a single
amendment would make it necessary for the Coun-
cil to act upon the entire proposal again.
Turner is empowered to call a special meeting
of the Judiciary committee at any time. If he is,
as he said in his platform for election to the office,
strongly in favor of the revision, he will secure
immediate action of the committee. The commit-
tee, if really representative of the fraternities,
which have expressed unanimous approval -of the
plan, will not throw a wrench into the machinery
which has been set in operation after months of
trial which have proved the failure of the present
system.
Regardless, however, of the action taken by the
alumni and the Judiciary committee, the decision
rests with' the Senate Committee. The, Senate
Committee may be convened by Dean Bursley at
any time he deems the' business under consider-
ation to be sufficiently important. Obviously, the
fipancial crisis facing the fraternities is sufficiently
important, and Dean Bursley has indicated that
he will not pigeon-hole the measure.
The Senate Committee has shown its willing-
ness to co-operate with the fraternities and the
Council by passing several relief measures this
spring. We are confident that the Committee wil
be as liberal in considering the new rushing plan,
upon which may rest the fate of many fraternities.

AUSTRALIAN PAINTING
by Donald F. Blankertz
An exhibition of modern Austrian paintings, the
last exhibit to be given this season under the auspices
of the College Art association, is open daily to the
public in the west gallery of Alumni Memorial hall1
and will continue to be shown until May 30. It is
an interesting collection of 70 oils, water-colors, and
drawings and prints, the works of modern Austrian
artists.
The general impression of these paintings is one
of vigor and color. They have not the technical skill
of French painting nor the freedom of manner that
is associated with contemporary American art, but
they reveal a true and sincere originality of feeling
and spirit.
Egon Schiele, who died in 1918 at the age of 28 is
often spoken of as the innovator of a new movement
in Austria. "The Girl and the Hat" is done in his
decorative style with'an elaboration of detail. A later
work, "Three Girls," shows an independence of ex-
pression and a strong composition.
Josef Dobrowsky, an important artist of the "Se-
cession" group which dominated Austrian' art earlier'
in the century, has several landscapes presenting
views of little towns and the life of the people. A
rival group, the "Hagenbund" group, is represented
by its leader, Carry Hauser, whose portrait "Miss
Universe" and "Couple on a Balcony" show a definite
stylization and skill in execution and composition.
In recent years these powerful groups have been
waning and certain independent artists have become
prominent. Among them are Felix Albrecht Harta
whose canvas "Bolino" shows his remarkable style,
Anton Kolig, whose works are fine both in color and
composition, and Victor Tischler whose work, "Mother
and Child," folows the French tradition. Bockl and
Egger are seemingly disciples of Oskar Kokoschka,
the greatest of living Austrian artists working in the
plastic style.
LOAN EXHIBIT
by Helen B. Hall
The etchings and lithographs which are being
exhibited in the North Gallery of Alumni Memorial
Hall are from the extensive and valuable private
collection of Dr. and Mrs. Walter R. Parker of Grosse
Pointe. The generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Parker in
loaning these fine prints is appreciated by their many
friends, and the exhibit provides a splendid op}or-
tunity for patrons of the May Festival to see these
beautiful examples of the graphic arts. The prints
will be on view until May 30.
Four exquisite lithographs by Ingres are especially
delightful. These are portrait studies, figures drawn
almost in outline yet beautifully modelled, represent-
ing the delicacy of line and the distinction which this
great French artist attains in his works.
