Walker Wilts
Under Attack
Of Schmeling
NEW YORK-Sept. 26. --(AP)-
Max Schmeling, former heavyweight
champion, scored a technical knock-
out over Mickey Walker at the close
of the eighth round of the 15-round
bout, when Walker's manager, Jack
Kearns, refused to let the little Irish-
man continue. Kearns relinquished
his fighter's chance when Walker's
left eye had been closed and his face
badly cut by two knockdowns in the
eighth round.
Walker was so badly b a t te r e d
under Schmeling's vicious attack in
the eighth round that he barely last-
ed the three minutes under terrific
punishment. He was down for counts
of six and nine.
Seeing his battered Warrior's con-
dition, Kearns leaped into the ring
as the bell sounded, took Walker to
his seat and refused to let him con-
Schmeling also floored Walker for
a count of six in the first round.
Schmeling weighed 1881/2 pounds,
Walker 1741/2 pounds.

Reduction Claimed for
Food Shops in Campus
Area Not Apparent
While students who eat at board-
ing houses this year will find that
the price of their sustenance has ma-
terially decreased, the undergraduate
who makes it a practice to get his
food at the local resturants will not
share their good fortune, a survey
conducted by The Daily shows.
Despite claims of -resturant pro-
prieters that food prices in their
establishments have decreased "any-
w h e r e from 20 to 60 per cent,"a
survey of resturant menus shows that'
the actual decline is considerably
below the minimum of that figure.
The decrease is really so small that
the student, with his reduced income,
will probably fail to notice it. The
survey, from which the estimates fol-
lowing were compiled, covers 10 eat-
ing places in the campus area, in-
clud in g the dining rooms of the
Union and the M i c h i g a n League
Breakfasts Vary Widely
Beginning with breakfast, the stu-
dent resturant patron will pay a sum
ranging from 15 to 60 cents depend-
ing on the size of the meal. Toast or
toasted rolls cost 10 cents in all
places; dry cereals an average of17.5
cents and cooked cerials an average
of 20 cents. Other breakfast costs
include: fruit, 11.8 cents; bacon and
eggs, 42.5; and coffee or milk, 6.8.
The light dinner or lucheon, eaten
more often at noon but sometimes at
night, has an average cost of 41
cents, with a top price of 75 cents
and a low of 25 cents. The average
price of a full dinner will be 70.6
cents with a minimum of 50 and a
maximum of $1.25.
Further study of restarant menus
reveals the average price of the sand-
wich as 15.46 cents. Egg and cheese
sandwiches average 14.1 cents; cold
meat sandwiches, 13.2 cents; and hot
meat sandwiches 19.1 cents.'
The prices of raw materials going
into the making of these foodstuffs
have declined sharply as have the
wholesale prices of the materials,
further investigation has revealed.

Is Seen in New
Rushing Plan
Consider New Scheme
Better; Few Complaints
Reach Council
Ten Houses Able
to Slash Budgets
'Whispering Campaigns'
Discarded; Alumni Send
Large Name Lists
Receiving the full co-operation of
nearly every house on the campus,
the Fraternity Plan of rushing,
which has been actively in effect
since Saturday, is proving far more
satisfactory and convenient to fra-
ternities and freshmen that the old
system of deferred pledging to the
concensus of student opinion.
Representatives from several lead-
ing fraternities said last night that
in their opinion the plan is the best
that has ever been in effect on the
Campus. Others were more conser-
vative, that, so far, it has proved, at
least, to be better than the old sys-
Few Complaints Made
There have been few complaints
from freshman about the rules, such
as were reported last year, and all
reports indicate that the new system
is very satisfactory to the first year
men, according to members of the
Interfraternity Council.
The Fraternity plancwill save the
houses a considerable amount of
money, budgets made out by ten rep-
resentative fraternities show.
The houses are supporting the
plan which originated in the Inter-
fraternity Council and few reports of
unfair rushing have been received
by any of the officers of the Coun-
Noticably lacking, are the whisper-
ing campaigns a g a i n s t specific
houses which were circulating during
the period of intensive rushing last
year. Campus leaders interpret this
as meaning that the fraternities are
backing this new plan "to the limit."
Fraternity alumni have helped
rushing. considerably more this year
than has been witnessed for some
time past by sending in recommend-
ations. It is the general belief that
this is due to the financial position
in which many of the houses now
find themselves.
The new rushing system, which
closely resembles that used by thea
sororities, gives the first year man
ample time to investigate the var-
ious houses, and yet does not extend
the rushing period so long that it be-..
comes a financial burden to the fra-
ternities, officers of the Interfrater-1
nity Council said last night.
Rushing Period Shorter
Shortening of the rushing period
was the main objective of the plan
set forth by the Interfraternity'
Council last spring. With that ac-:
complished, members of the commit-
tee who drew up the plan stated
minor details could be settled as ex-,
perience proved their need.;
Rushing will continue until the
second Thursday, after which a per-
iod of silence will follow. During the
next three days fraternity men are
to have no contacts with the rushees.
During this time, fraternities will
submit to the office of the Dean of
Students a list of the freshmen, in
the order of preference, that they
wish to pledge. All freshmen who are
on any list will receive notices from
the Dean's office stating that they
have been bid by a fraternity. They
then turn in a list of the houses that

they would join, in the order of pref-
erence. Formal pledging will take
place the following Monday.
Freshmen who receive bids to join
a fraternity but who fail to turn in
a preference list will not be eligible
to be pledged until the beginning of
the next semester.
Fraternity standings in the Inter-
fraternity S c h ol a s t i c Conference
Trophy contest, and their scholastic
positions for 1931-32, are listed on

42-Year-Old Negro
Salesman, Famous
As Fan, Dies Here
John P. "Doc" Sloan, 42-year-old
Negro Stadium concessionaire, will
be missed by football fans during
this season. Sloan, who died last
week at St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital
of heart disease, was a salesman of
the first order and did not miss more
than a few of Michigan's games at
home and away during the last 20
Whenever Michigan was playing
football Sloan was there, selling pil-
lows, popcorn, soft drinks, paper
raincoats, and eyeshades.
Before the game started Sloan was
busy selling armbands and souvenirs.
During the last few years Sloan had
been employed by L. O. Cushing, who
handles the concessions for the as-
Sloan, rarely missed an out-of-
town game. When the players de-
parted whether for Princeton or
Purdue, "Doc" Sloan was generally
on the t r a i n with them. Long
distances held no terror for him, as
he generally paid his fare by sales
on the train.
"Doe" was not only a great sales-
man but also a scholar. He was en-
rolled in the College of Engineering
here in 1909-10. In 1910-11 he
changed to Dentistry, and then 1914
found him back for another year,
this time in the Literary college. In
1920-21 he came for another year in
the Literary college.
Will Open New
Rooming House
Rates at No. 2 to Be Set
at $1.25 a Week with
Barber and Laundry
The second of a group of co-oper-
ative student rooming houses is ex-
pected to open this week with a ca-
pacity of 50 students, it is announced
by Norman Kuhne, '36, who is in
charge of the registration.
The house, which will be known as
Michigan Co-operative No. 2, will
be located at 523 Packard street.
Though meals will be served at the
No. 1 house on East Ann street, there
will be no board at the No. 2 house,
and the rate will be lowered to $1.25
a week. This includesnot only the
room, but b a r b e r and laundry
service as well Kuhne announced.
All students to live in the house will
be required to do three hours of work
a week in houskeeping, 1 a u n d r y
work, and other duties.
"Applications are acceptable any
time now for membership in this
house," Kuhne said. "We would like
to open Wednesday; work is under
way and we will op e n with 30
students, with room for 20 more.
We believe we can substantially re-
duce the cost of living to any student
willing to put three hours a week in
a co-operative spirit. Without co-
operation the plan would fail."
Co-operative House No. 1, on East
Ann street, had 25 members enrolled
and a waiting list of 39 at the close
of registration yesterday, it was an-
n o u n c e d. Some of this overflow
membership will probably be trans-
ferred to the No. 2 house, Kuhne
Eating Club Ready
For Opening Soon;
Sample Menus Out

With Thursday set as a tentative
opening date for the Michigan Co-
operative, proposed s t u d e n t and
faculty eating club, members of the
Co-operative staff are collecting last-
minute contributions to the work.
"Whatever the day, we expect to
open sometime this week," Sher M.
Quraishi, Grad., m e m b e r of the
Board of Servants of the group,
stated. "We have the chef, the cook
and all our equipment and need only
assurance of a sufficient membership
to go ahead with food purchases."
A trust fund of $400 must be estab-
lished, Quraishi said, and any bal-
ance over this amount will be used to
buy foodstuffs.
"The plan cannot help but succeed.
We can serve excellent food at $2.50
or less a week, "Quraishi declared.
"We invite comparison of our sample
menus, on view at Lane Hall, with
any costing $1.50 more a week. The
food we promise will be palatable,
substantial, of good q u a 1 i t y, and
the diet will be balanced, on the basis

Called Pioneer Among Singers

Lawrence Tibbett, spectacular bar-
itone of the Metropolitan Opera
Company, who is scheduled to ap-
pear here on Nov. 2 in connection
with the Choral Union Concert Ser-
ies, has been called "a pioneer of a
musical e x p r e s si o n distinctively
American that is creating a tremend-
