Neilson Points
To Changes. in
Rushing Rules
Sorority Rushees Must
Adhere Rigidly to All.
Regulations, Usages
Important points of the new sor-
ority rushing rules were stressed yes-
terday by Evelyn Neilson, 35, pres-
ident of the Panhellenic Association.
They are of special significance to
incoming women, since there are
several changes this year.
The rushing period will start at 3
o'clock Saturday, and wig: continue
until Thursday, Oct. 6. The opening
events will be the teas Saturday and
Sunday afternoon, for which rushees
will receive uniform bids. These are
the only dates which may be split
with any sorority, and no rushee
may stay longer than 45 minutss at
any one house.
The formals will be held on Wed-
nesday and Thursday of the second
week, and while a rushee may accept
only one formal date with a house,1
she is free to break a date previous-
ly made if she so desires.
Preference slips must be turned
into the office of the Dean of Wo-
men by noon Friday, Oct. 9. Wo-1
men are warned that a preference
slip signed and dropped in the box,
binds them for one calendar year. If
there is any indecision in the mat-]
ter, the slip should not be turned in,
in any event.
Any woman who pledges a soror-
ity formally and then decides to
break her promise must wait one
year before she may repledge. It is
highly important that each rushee
understand thoroughly all the points
regarding the signing of the slips,
for there will be no exceptions to the
Kappa Delta Rho
Leads Fraternities
In Scholastic List
Kappa Delta Rho beat out Sigma
Phi by 2.9 points to establish itself
at the head of the general frater-
nities in scholarship and is the or-
ganization with the highest scholar-
ship average on the campus for the
year 1931-1932, according to figures
released by the registrar's office.
Kappa Delta Rho's average was 85.4.
Pi Beta Phi again lead the gen-
eral sorority classification with a
percentage of 83.2. Second place
went to Kappa Delta with 81.9.
General sororities stood at the top
of the combined divisions, with wo-
men students as a whole making a
close second. The percentage for
general fraternities and sororities
was five-tenths points above the
average for all men and women.

Practice Run
Hits 126-Mile Pace, but
Record Test Is Halted
By Mishap
ALGONAC, Mich., Sept. 19-(IP)-
During the years that Gar Wood has
been racing speed boats, thorough
preparation has enabled him to keep
his engines running while all rivals
have come to grief because of mis-
haps that may have been traced to
Gar took a chance this morning.
He wasn't as thorough as usual and
because of this he was prevented
from creating a new world record,
even though he did make one mile
at an average speed of 126.92 statute
miles an hour-faster than man ever
traveled on water.
A small nut, an insignificant thing
when looking at the mechanism that
goes to make up the power plant in
Miss America X, gave way and balk-
ed further effort at a time when a
new record seemed easy of accom-
plishedment. This nut retains the
propeller shaft in the gear box. It
broke on the second of what Gar
chose to call "warm up" runs prior
to making a bid for a record over
the one-mile straightaway in the St.
Clair River north of here.
Gar was disappointed by the sud-
den turn of events, but he took the
mishap with a smile. Back in his
boathouse after the practice run he
jokingly remarked, "we took too
much of a chance. Orlin (Johnson,
his mechanic), and I knew this
morning that it was worn a bit, but
we thought it would be good enough
to last for a couple of miles. But
we did have a great run out there
before we were stopped."
Standard Taxicab Rate
Passed by City Council
Taxicabs operating in Ann Arbor
in the future will be required to
charge a standard rate adopted last
night by the city council by a 13-2
vote. The new ordinance will force
the taxicab operators to charge a
flat rate of 35 cents for one person,.
50 cents for two to five persons, and
10 cents for each person exceeding
five. Taxis operating under this or-
dinance will be required to display a

Stars Kept Out by Minor
Injuries; to Be Ready

With less than two weeks before
the first game of the season, Coach
Kipke sent his Wolverines through
their first scrimmage yesterday after-

The full squad of more than 50
players were given a chance to show
their ability under the hot sun in
the opening scrimmage of the sea-

Stan Fay, Carl Savage, Bill Renner,
and Tom Austin were kept out of the
rough play by minor injuries, these
men will see action tomorrow in the
second scrimmage with the exception
of Williamson, who will be kept out
of the rough going until the State
game, Oct. 1.

The Blues defeated the White, 50-

Will Explain Plan
At Union Meeting
Pledging Is Deferred Till
Oct. 10; Rushing Begins
Next Saturday
Climaxing a concentrated drive by
fraternity men against deferred rush-
ing, a new plan which postpones
rushing until Saturday and pledging
until Monday, Oct. 10, was adopted
by the Senate Committee on Student
Affairs last June at the end of the
scholastic year and will go into ac-
tive effect today.t
Believing that the old system of
rushing, which deferred pledging un-
til the start of the second semester,
was virtually stifling the life of fra-
ternities, the Interfraternity Council
drew up the plan which was later
approved by the Senate Committee.
Old Plan Failure
Members of the Committee stated1
that they believed the old plan had
been a failure because it had been
forced on the fraternities and saidi
that the new system would probably
work better as it was drawn up by
the fraternities themselves.
The plan does not differ materially
from the one that has been employed
by sororities for many years and in
the ppinion of Miss Alice C. Lloyd,
dean of women, has proved very suc-
cessful. Miss Lloyd supported the
fraternity plan.
Complete changes made in the rushing
rules will be found on page 15, column1
An informal explanation of the
new rushing rules will be given by
the interfraternity council at 7:30
o'clock Thursday night in the Union,
it was announced yesterday by Ed-
win T. Turner, '33, president.
"Because of the fact that the new
ruling was passed after the conclu-
sion of college last spring and thei
consequent misunderstanding a n d
misinterpretation of the rules, it has;
been decided to call this meeting be-
fore the actual rushing begins," Tur-
ner said.
To Notify All Houses
"Since we hope that there will be
no mistakes made under the new
plan, all of the fraternities will be
notified of the meeting," he contin-
ued. "While attendance is in no man-
ner compulsory we hope that each
house will send at least one repre-
Each entering freshman has been
given a booklet of "University of
Michigan Fraternities" by the Coun-
cil, containing, besides a greeting to
the freshmen from the president and
secretary-treasurer of the Interfra-
ternity Council and the dean of stu-
dent, a complete list of the Michigan
fraterdties with a picture of each
each, a picture of the badge, the
national and local founding dates,
the number of chapters, and a list
of the men in the house by classes.
The booklet also contains a com-
plete copy of the rushing rules.
Loan Applications
Double in Number
Over Last Year
Three hundred applications for
student loans, more than twice as
many as the number received at this
time last year, have been filed at the
office of Joseph A. Bursley.
One-third of the loans have been
refused because a total far in ex-
cess of the 2,000 who applied during
last year is anticipated and because
the money in the fund is limited.
No actual cash is being given to
recipients of loans but $60 is paid to-
ward their tuition of the first semes-
ter and $40 toward that of the sec-
ond semester. The money is trans-
ferred from the loan fund to the tui-

tion fund.
No loans have been granted to
freshmen, or sophomores and very
few have been allowed juniors or
graduate students, according to Dean
Bursley, since the committee in
charge believes t h a t preference
should be given to seniors.

Auto Ban to Take
Effect on Monday,
Rea Warns Drivers
Deadline for students having cars
in Ann Arbor has been set for 8
o'clock Monday morning, Sept. 26,
when the automobile regulation will
go into effect, according to Walter
B. Rea, assistant to the dean of stu-
dents. No students who have notsob-
tained permits will be allowed to use
cars, Rea said yesterday.
Students who believe themselves
eligible for permits should apply for
them at the office of the dean in
University hall, Rea said. Among
those eligible to drive are students
carrying less than five hours, those
who are over 28 years of age, those
who are married, and those who have
a faculty connection equivalent to
the rank of teaching assistant. Spec-
ial permission will also be granted to
certain other students.
If cars are stored in nearby towns,
the license number must be regis-
tered wtih Rea. This ruling also ap-
plies to the exempt students, who
should register their license numbers
in order to prevent misunderstand-
ings which might arise later.

the University this fall are more
serious minded and are coming here

The department showing the larg-
est loss is the literary school, where
there are 132 fewer applications from
freshmen men than last year. The
only school showing an increase is
the School of Education which can
point to a 57 per cent increase.
1,255 Freshmen Enrolled
The t o t a l freshman enrollment
last night was 1,255, while last year
at the same time the enrollment was
1,414, a decrease of 11.2 per cent.

Bursley said yesterday. "One of our
aims has been to standardize the
orientation process so that there will
be no misunderstandings and the
program will be conducted smoothly."

Kraus Praises Serious Spirit
of Campus in Summer Term

"Although the 1932 Summer Ses-
sion was smaller from the point of
view of attendance than the preced-
ing one, it was one of the most suc-
cessful that we have ever had from
the point of view of seriousness of
the students and their application to
their work," Dean Edward H. Kraus
of the Summer Session declared yes-

anything we have ever had before,"
Dean Kraus said. "The co-operation
