Wilbur Walden Speaks A
Interfraternity Conven
tion In New York Citi
Advises Caution
In Building House.
Says University Authoritie
should Supervise Erec
tion Of Establishments
NEW YORK, Nov. 26.-(1P)-Uni
versity fraternities were cautioned tV
go slow about establishing new chap
ters and building new houses in ad
dresses today at the National Inter
fraternity conference.
Wilbur W. Walden, executive secre
tary of Alpha Chi Rho, said tha
"there is a definite limit to the num-
ber of fraternities on any campus,'
and that colleges and universitie
should exercise great care before per
mitting establishment of new chap-
ters.
Walden said that after an extensive
study he had concluded fraternity
chapters should never be instituted a
a state university in which the per.
centage of fraternity men exceed 5
per cent of the male students, or a
private institution where the percent-
age was more than 75.
Bruce H. McIntosh, of Indianapolis
executive secretary of Lambda Ch:
Alpha, said fraternities should exer-
cise caution in the construction oJ
new chapter houses, adding that they
had been exploited by builders. He
said university authorities should su-
pervise erection of chapter houses and
expressed the hope "the ruthless re-
placement of chapter houses by- dor-
mitories will not be continued."
The, College, Fraternity Editorial
Association elected the following offi-
cers for next year; C. F. Williams, of
Cleveland, president; K. D. Pulcipher,
of Philadelphia, vice-president; Chas,
Edward 'Thomas, secretary-treasurer.
Tag Day To Be
Held By Galens
For Children
Affair Will Take Place On
Dec. 6 and 7; Society
Maintains Workshop
Galens will conduct a tag day for
the benefit of the crippled children
of the .University hospital on Dec.
6 and 7, it was announced yesterday.
This society uses the money from
these annual drives to maintain a
manual training workshop on the
ninth floor of the building for all of
the handicapped children who come
to the hospital. The drives sponsor-
ed by the society were started in 1928
and, since then returns of more than
$4,500 have been contributed.
More than 650 of these unfortu-
nates were taken care of by the funds
given by the honorary medical frater-
nity last year. A manual training
instructor is retained half-time by
the society for the year around, and
materials for the projects of the chil-

dren, whether in wood or leather
work or in weaving, are provided for
by the gifts.
While most of the proceeds of the
drive go to the support of this shop
for the year around, the drive is held
shortly before Christmas so that a
Christmas party can be given for the
children. Only a small portion of the
receipts go toward this party, how-
ever. I
Fourteen juniors and an equal
number of seniors in the medical
school are members of the society.

Committee To
Revise Health
Laws Of State
Michigan Man Will Lead
Investigation; Results To
Be Given To Legislature
Possible revision of Michigan laws
to bring about harmony between state
governmental units, city, county,
township, and state, pertaining to
public health regulations, is seen as
a result of an investigation being
conducted by a committee under the
direction of Dr. Nathan Sinai of the
medical school.
Dr. Sinai is being assisted by Dr.
John Sunderwall, also of the medical
school; and by Dr. B. W. Carey, di-
rector of the Michigan Children's
Fund; Dr. Chalmers J. Lyons, of the
State iealth Council; Dr. Herbert E.
Randall, of the Michigan State Med-
ical Society; and Dr. C. Slemmons,
of the State Department of Health.
The committee is one of many
which are co-operating in conducting
an inquiry into city, county, town-
3hip, and school district governments.
The results of the several surveys,
znd recommendations fpr bettering
andesirable conditions discovered,
will be submitted to the legislature
at its next session.
Funds for the investigations have
been supplied in part by the Mich-
igan legislature, which has contribut-±
~d $5,000, and in part by the Laura
Spellman Rockefeller Foundation, of.
New York, which has contributed
$20,000. The foundation has furnish-
ed this sum in the belief that Mich-
igan is a typical state, and hence
appropriate for study of problems in
state governments.
The report of Dr. Sinai's commit-
tee will include, in addition to its
recommendations, a discussion of the
evolution of health administration,
criteria of public health, and a de-
scription of local activities related to
public health throughout the state.

case of Douglas Clyde Macintosh, and
the recent decision which ordered a
new Wrial for the negroes in the
Scottsboro case.

Prompt Payment Of War

Debts Suggested By U.S.
(By Associated Press)
Two more refusals were passed out
yesterday by the state department
to nations asking the United States
for permission to postpone payments
on their war debts due Dec. 15.
Identical notes handed to envoys
of Poland and Czechoslovakia were
.shorter but similar to those sent earl-
ier in the week to the governments of
Great Britain, France, and Belgium.
Prompt payment was suggested
with the explanation of the better
atmosphere here that would be creat-
ed for consideration by Congress of a
proposal from President Hoover for
an agency to re-examine the whole
war debt situation.

MayYet Fail
Amendment Is Favored In
Only Two Metropolitan
Districts Of Michigan
15,000 Votes Able
To Defeat Measure
Errors In Wayne County
May Change Decision,
Declares Harold Smith
The property tax limitation
amendment, which has been causing
furors of speculation throughout the
state, may not actually have passed
in the recent election, it was revealed
yesterday by Harold Smith, director
of the Michigan Municipal league.
Mr. Smith bases his optimism on
the following analysis:
"The latest figures on the tax limi-
tation amendment," he says "show
that it apparently passed by the bare
majority of approximately 1,000
votes. In Wayne County, according
to the present figures, 70,000 more
persons voted on amendment one-
the 'liquor' amendment-than on the
tax amendment. So big a majority
makes it appear that not all the votes
on the latter amendment were count-
ed.
"The Wayne County . Board of
Canvassers," Mr. Smith continued,
"which is conducting a much-pub-
licized retabulation of the Wayne
County votes, has already discovered
a large number of arithmetical er-
rors substantially affecting the out-
come of the election. If they discover
that more persons voted on the tax
amendment than have so far been
reported, which is more than prob-
able, it is entirely possible that 15,-,
000 votes against the amendment will
come to light."
When asked why he thought that
most of the votes found not to have
been counted would be ag'ainst the
amendment, Mr. Smith pointed to
the returns in other metropolitan
districts in the state, which have with
two exceptions defeated it.
According to Mr. Smith the results
of the check-up of the Board of
Canvassers will be made public early
this week.
Peruvians Capture City
In 'War' With Colombia
PARA, Brazil, Nov. 26. -()- Dis-
patches from the western frontier
today said a detaehment of regular
Peruvian troops had occupied the
town of Leticia, border settlement
over which Peru and Columbia have
been in dispute for some time.
They' were led by Gen. Hordonez,
who left after the occupation and
went down the river to Putomayo.
Some weeks ago a group of Peru-
vian civilians moved into Leticia and
took over the town. Theretofore it
had been accepted as Colombian ter-
ritory. The Peruvian Government re-
plied when Colombia protested, that
the action of the civilians lacked offi-
cial support.
ISLAND GOLD OUTPUT RISES
MANILA, Nov. 26-(P)-Because of

pines' gold output this year is ex-
pected to reach $4,000,000. Last

the previous high.

Gabrilowitsch Speech Making
Shown To Be Ancient Custom.

By JOHN W. PRITCHARD
When it was that Ossip Gabrilo-
witsch, conductor of the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra, first began his
impromptu entre-actes speech mak-
ing would be difficult to determine.
But the fact that his custom existed
almost three years ago is attested by
his taking issue with Leopold Sto-
kowski before a Philadelphia audi-
ence, early in 1930, when he was
guest conductor of the Philadelphia
Symphony in place of Mr. Stokowski.
Mr. Gabrilowitsch, who will appear
here Wednesday night at Hill Audi-
torium with the Detroit Symphony
Orchestra as the third 1932 presen,
tation Qf the Choral Union Concert
Series, last week discovered that a
number of persons in Detroit were

orchestra hall at Philadelphia and
told the audience that Leopold Sto-
kowski was all wrong in his belief
that applause was detrimental to qd
symphony concert. He stated, how-
ever, that although he could speak
only for himself, he had been "au-
thorized" by Mr. Stokowski to make
public his opinion on the subject.
"When you like something," he
said, "jump in with both feet and
show it. I like these countries in the
south of Europe where they shout
when they are pleased, and when
they are not, hiss and throw potatoes.
"These men of the orchestra are
artists and they need appreciation.
It is a mistake to think you have
done your part when you buy your
tickets.
