imitation of the Michigan procedure.
Mayor Newkirk explained the ef-
forts being made to get a loan from

would not be paid directly at the

would be returned to the Federal
government through a removal from
the government appropriation for
state highways. He said that unless
the money, which would be used for
the construction of a sewage disposal
plant, were raised the city could not
continue to support its needy. On the
other hand, he pointed out that Ypsi-

about Ann Arbor's sewage dumping
in the Huron river.

Northwestern set two National In-
tercollegiate swimming records in the
Intramural pool last night but lost
the meet to Michigan, 43 to 32.
Oliver Horn broke John Schinieler's
record established in the same pool
March 13, 1931, by slipping :02.4 sec-
onds off the breast-stroke mark that
'formerly stood at 2:31.4. By swim-
ming the 200-yard breast-stroke in
2:29, Horn established himself as
Schmieler's superior, although the
Michigan captain did not swim in
the event.
Set Record in Relay
The second new intercollegiate
mark was set in the 300-yard med-
ley relay. Again Northwestern took
the old time accredited to the Wol-
verines off the books. Hahn, Horn,
and Highland combined to establish
the time of 3:04.5 in favor of the
former record of 3:06.2. Drysdale,
Lemak, and Schmieler held the rec-
ord before the Wildcat conquest.
making it in 1932.
In the 300-yard medley, Schmieler
:gave Louis Lemak a lead of five yards
after swimming 100 yards backstroke.
Lemak, in turn, presented Bob Ren-
ner a lead of two yards after the 100-
yard breast-stroke had been com-
pleted. Then Highland stepped out,
cutting down Renner's lead inch by
inch, and finally won by a good yard.
Michigan scored one-two in two
events, the 220 and 440, as Jim Cristy
and Frank Kennedy finished in that
order in both races. Cristy swam the
longer race in :01.7 slower than the
intercollegiate record and :02.1 slower
than the world's record. He lapped
both Wildcat swimmers and came
within three-feet of lapping Ken-
nedy. In the 220-yard Cristy nosed
out Kennedy by a scant six-inches
after his Wolverine rival had taken
the last turn with a yard lead.
Schmieler Aids Victory
Michigan won the first relay when
Captain Schmieler led his mates in
the 400-yard relay. Schmieler had a
lead of 10 yards, Kennedy 12 yards,
Kamienski 10 yards, and Marcus fin-
ished with a lead of 15 yards.
Schmicler came back in the 150-yard
back-stroke event to win by six Inches
with Hahn second. Boice added a
point to Michigan's total with a third
in this event. .
Northwestern scored their only
slam in the 100-yard free style as
Highland beat Troup to the finish
line in the slow time of :54.7. In the
record breaking medley relay, High-
land swam the 100 free-style in :52.0,
which is more than two-seconds
Dick Degener had another great
night on the high board, scoring 150.
85 points for first. Wilkie of North-
i western was scored with 116.9, and
Fred Fenske third with 97.2 points.
Northwestern natators gained slight
revenge by sinking the Michigan
water poloists, 7 to 2, in a rough en-
counter. Schmieler, Kennedy, Cristy,
Marcus, Bailey, Fenske, and Kamien-
ski represented the Wolves.

hell Week' Excess
calle-d Dange ro us
To Stutdent Healti
Traditional practices of "hell week"
carry undue risks to health of all
students involved, according to a
statement issued yesterday by the
Health Service Staff.
The horseplay and excess of tra-
ditional "hell week" are rather primi-
tive, puerile, and unworthy of the
dignity which should characterize
groups of University students selected
upon the basis of intelligent young
adult development, declared Dr. War-
ren Forsythe, director of the Health
The Health Service does not oppose
the tradition of the students merely
because there are some health haz-
ards, according to the statement, but
advise that there are too many risks
of health in "hell week."
"The health card issued to the new
student at the entrance examination
states that the student may safely
do things of which the University ap-
proves, but it does not release any
fraternity from responsibility for
what may be done in the attempts of
'breaking' or remaking' the spirit
! and loyalties of the new members,"
Dr. Forsythe stated.
" For the most part the hazardous
features are matters of common un-
derstanding, but loss of sleep, ex-
posure to cold, unreasonable physical
violence, and excessive physical strain
are mentioned.
For Pharmacy
School Shifted
Changes Are Approved By
Regents; Flexibility Of
Science Units Is Feature
A new and broader set of entrance
requirements for the College of Phar-
macy were approved by the Regents
at their last meeting, Edward H.
Kraus, dean of the pharmacy college
announced yesterday.
High school chemistry was elimin-
ated from the list of required sub-
jects on the recommendation of rep-
resentatives of the department of
chemistry and greater flexibility is
now provided for all science units
under the new plan.
A feature of the plan is the recog-
nition for admission of a single unit
in a second foreign language when
the specific language requirement of
two units has been met. At pres-
ent prospective freshmen who have
completed two units in a single lang-
uage and desire to take a single year
in a second language are advised by
high school authorities not to do so
because the unit cannot be approved
toward the 15 required for admis-
sion to the University.
Under the new plan which takes
effect immediately required units are;
English 3; Greek, Latin, French, Ger-.
man or Spanish, 2; elementary alge-
bra 1; plane geometry 1; physics 1.
Four additional units may be in any
of these subjects or in history, trig-
onometry, chemistry, botany, zoology,
physiology, physiography, geology,
economics or government, and an-
other three units to make a total of
15 may be chosen from these or other
subjects offered by the high school.

WASHINGTON, March 3.-(/P)-
America's problems, focusing just
now on the business situation, were
turned over to President-Elect Roose-
velt tonight by President Hoover and
the silence of two executives led to
fresh confidence in the crowded cap-
In the quiet of the White House,
Mr. Hoover and Mr. Roosevelt talked
for an hour and 10 minutes late
today, surrounded by the outgoing
and incoming financial experts.
With them gathered Secretary Og-
den L. Mills, Eugene Meyer, governor
of the Federal Reserve Board, and
Prof. Raymond I. Moly, economic ad-
viser to the President-Elect, Present
at the conference were Mrs. Hoover,
Mrs. Roosevelt and Mr. and Mrs
James Roosevelt, son and daughter-
in-law of the President-Elect.

Considers Banking
These problems, and particularly
the banking problem, have occupied
the untiring and cheerful Roosevelt
up to the eve of his inauguration, and
it is believed that they were the no-
tive for the conference,
The call of the incoming President
and his wife had been listed as mere-
ly a f6rmal visit of respect, and only
after the Roosevelts had been gone
from the White House for an hour
was the entrance of the economic
and financial advisers disclosed.
The swift-moving events of the
closing days of Congress and of Na-
tional financial affairs have been
closely watched, but the President-
Elect has calmly bided his time. He
is taking no action until he takes over
the reins of government on the front
steps of the Capitol tomorrow after-
noon. He is ready to act, his imme-
diate friends say, but he is going to
wait until he can act in his own
right and do whatever the situation
at the time demands.
Stocjs RSe
Meantime, members of his official
family probed about the departments
they will occupy, ready to swing into
action Monday at the side of their
chief. Mr. Roosevelt had no time to
listen to or even receive the many
reports of rising prices on the com-
modity and stock exchanges which
obviously brought a new relief to
anxious officials.
When the word was flashed back
here, however, that the President-
Elect was preparing a statement on
the banking situation, it brought a
quick denial from the Roosevelt con-
ference room.
Along with many others, Mr. and
Mrs. Roosevelt and the Vice-Presi-
dent-Elect and Mrs. Garner were
heartened by the prospect of a clear,
cool day for the inauguration-"pa-
rade weather," as it was said. .
