The rushing regulation, prohibit-
ing the use of automobiles for the
transportation or entertainment of
freshmen by fraternity men, will be
lifted from 1 to 8:30 p. m. Saturday,
it was announced last night by the
Interfraternity Council.
While this ruling goes not in any
way affect the University Automo-
bile Ban, it means that fraternity
alumni may transport freshmen, and
fraternity men may also take them in
cars, providing that they do not drive
them themselves.
The ruling was passed because it
was believed that, with the large
number of fraternity alumni in town
for the Michigan State football game,
it would be practically impossible to
enforce the adopted rushing rule.-
Members of the Council felt that,
with the complications that would
arise, such as relations between par-
ents having fraternity connections
and freshmen, it would be best to
lift the rule for Saturday afternoon.
In the meantime, according to Ed-
win T. Turner, '33, Council presi-
dent, fraternities are living up to the
new plan of pledging. Violations
earlier in the week were undoubtedly
the results of misunderstandings, he
The Council also r e p e a t e d its
warning to all houses, saying that
violators of the rule would be pun-
ished. Penalties may be so severe
that the offenders will not be al-
lowed..to pledge any men for a num-
ber of years,.
The general attitude of the ma-
jority of the freshmen, not to have
anything to do with houses who vio-
lated the Fr a t e r n i t y Plan, was
praised by the Council.

On Traditions
"Cannot Compel Wearing

Council Will Act Satur-
day; Upperclassmen Fa-.
vor Taking New Action
Threats by the Stuen Council to
enforce "pot" wearing received a
crushing blow yesterday when only
a handful of the first year men ap-
peared with the traditional badge of
"We can't do anything about it,"
lamented William Shepard, president
of the sophomore class. "Last year
we tried every possible way toget
the members of our class to- wear
"pots," but it just couldn't be done."
"The fraternities are the only ones
that can force the first year men to
wear the caps," he added, "and they
have to use the paddle at that."
One brave freshman said he defied
the sophomore class to make him
wear his pot. Although he has pur-
chased his pot, he said he will not
wear it until forced to do so by some
Jack McCarthy, '36, newly elected
president of the rendezvous club, said
that although he had a "pot," he did
not think the tradition "a splendid
Tradition Termed Splendid
Norm Williamson, '36, said that he
saw no reason for taking any chance
of being hazed as long as no one was
trying to enforce the tradition. He
added, however, that he thought the
idea of wearing "pots" was a good
one, and would immediately fall in
line if the other members of his
class decided to keep alive the tradi-
"It's a foolish idea," said Louis
Benua, '36, when asked why he did
not wear his "pot." "I bought my
pot last Saturday but will not wear it
unless someone takes drastic action
to enforce it."
Over forty sophomores were inter-
viewed yesterday and none were in
favor of taking any action against
the freshmen. Shepard did say, "We
will get even on Black Friday."
Although the resOlution drawn up
by the Student Council had little ef-
fect on the first year men, Joseph
Zias, '33, president of the Council,
had no statement to make to the
Daily last night concerning the "pot"
wearing. "We will issue a proclama-

Yanks Score
Another Win
From Cubs, 5-2
Gomez Scatters Cubs' Hits
To Win In Initial World
Series Appearance
(Special Daily Correspondent)
Sept. 29-Pairing their singles to
send five runs across the plate in
three innings, the Yankees turned
back the Cubs again in the second
game of the series here today with-
out making an extra base hit.
A crowd of 54,399 saw Vernon Go-
mez, lanky southpaw hurler, put on
his hat for good luck and then take
the mound for the Yanks, scattering
the Cubs' nine hits over nine inn-
ings for a 5 to 2 victory in his first
World Series appearance. Lon War-
neke, also making his debut in cham-
pionship play, was visibly nervous,
but went the entire route for the
Preceding the game, the Yanks
took up a collection among the mem-
bers of the club and presented a sil-
ver cup to Manager Joe McCarthy
and a box of cigars to Babe Ruth.
Each player contributed $8.50 to the
gift fund.
Koenig Out
Mark Koenig, former Yankee and
Detroit Tiger short stop, was out of
the Cubs' line-up today and probably
for the rest of the series with a
badly sprained wrist received yes-
terday. He was replaced by Bill
Jurges. Manager Charlie Grimm of
the Cubs uncorked a surprise when
he put John Demaree into center
field and indicated that he would
leave him there for Saturday's game.
The Cubs gave a greatly improved
exhibition in the field today, playing
errorless ball throughout. An un-
usual double play in the fourth, in
which Hartnett and Jurges trapped
Sewell after Combs had been caught,
between third and home, was the
outstanding feature of the after-
The crowd thought Babe Ruth had
come through with his first homer
of the series in the seventh inning,
but the Babe's long drive bounded
off the fence and was good for only
a single. Gehrig again was the Yan-.
kee's hero, scoringtw runs on three
one-base hits.
The Cubs were none too confident
after today's performance with War-
neke, the second and last of Chi-,
cago's ace hurlers, in the box. Mana-
ger Grimm indicated tht he would
probably be f o r c e d to use Bush
against the Yanks again Saturday,
with Root as a second choice.

Enthusiasm Runs High As
Michigan Republicans
Endorse Ticket
Depression Is Over
Claims Ogden Mills
Nation's Recovery Due To
President's Leadership,
Says Sec'y Of Treasury
DETROIT, Sept. 29--(R)-In an
entirely harmonious convention, the
Republicans of M i c h i g a n today
pledged their allegiance to the state
and national tickets, accepted Presi-
dent Hoover's interpretation of the
party's prohibition stand, and re-
nominated incumbent state officers.
The high enthusiasm of the dele-
gates pleased party leaders. Heads
of all factions joined in an appeal for
unity. Such outstanding figures as
U. S. Senators James Couzens and
Arthur Vandenberg and former Gov-
ernors Chase S. Osborn and Fred
W. Green joined in asking for co-
ordinated Republican effort. To
make the picture complete, Edward
N. Barnard, leader of a Wayne coun-
ty faction which normally is not
considered friendly to the adminis-
tration endorsed the entire ticket.
Ogden L. Mills, secretary of the
treasury, represented the national
administration. He voiced the be-
lief that the period of economic de-
pression is over and gave credit to
President Hoover for the recovery.
He declared that under the Pr.esi-
dent's leadership "our resources have
been so mobilized as to bring us
through safely, though with much
suffering and damage. Our econom-
ic machinery is intact and ready to
respond once more to the creative
impulses of an energetic, resource-
ful, and industrious people. Presi-
dent Hoover has earned the right
to complete the task of reconstruc-

nated were Frank D. Fitzgerald, sec-
retary of state; Howard C. Law-

Violators To
Be Punished
President of Pan-Hellenic
Council Issues Warning
After Complaints
Rushees Asked To
Limit Engagements
Reminded That Dates
With Sororities May Be
Broken If So Desired
Sever punishments wil be imposed
by the Panhellenic board upon so-
rorities guilty of rushing rule vio-
lations, according to Evelyn Neil-
son, president of the Panhellenic As-
Miss Neilson said yesterday that
reports have been coming in with
such frequency that the board has
determined to publish any future
violations. Houses are warned to
take this matter seriously because
of the laxity of the sororities them-
selves. In such cases the Panhel-
lenic executive board will overstep
its duties and upon report of any
more offenses will suspend rushing
for two or three days.
Miss Neilson cited the following
rules as being the most often broken:
Must Keep Dates Consecutively
A sorority may not make a formal
date with a rushee until after the
completion of the second date. Dates
must be made and kept in consecu-
tive order; that is, if a house asks
for a formal date with a rushee after
the completion of a second date, that
date is to be the next one with the
rushee in question. The penalty im-
posed on a house which has been
found guilty for one offense against
this rule is suspension of all further
dates with the rushee. Three of-
fenses will call for the suspension ofj
one formal dinner of that house.
A second rule often violated is one
prohibiting a sorority from having
more than four dates with one rush-
ee. Upon report of any further vio-
lation of this rule all dates in the
future for whom this rule was broken
will be rendered null and void.
Tea Room Rushing Forbidden
The third rule which has been fla-
grantly broken forbids tea room
rushing. There have been many re-
ports of disobedience of this rule,
and the penalty to be levied is the
breaking of all future dates with the
Rushees have been asked to ac-
cept not more than four dates with
any one house. They have also been
reminded that formal dates are not
binding and that they may be broken
if thedhouse is notified, Miss Neilson

"One of the main features of our
program for the current year," an-
nounced John Khalaf, chairman of
the club, "is that we have been for-
tunate in arranging to have Mr. Pa-
tel, of India, lecture here on Nov.
8." Mr. Patel, formerly Lord Mayor
of Bombay and now president of the
Indian Legislative A s s e m b1 y, and
known as the right arm of Gandhi,
is expected to give a very enlight-
ening discussion on present condi-
tions in his country.
"International good will," Khalaf
said, "can only be attained by an
intellectual and sympathetic study
of world problems. To serve this
purpose, the club extends its invi-
tation to all those who are vitally
interested in the social and political
progress of our human race.
"Ours is not a foreign students'
organization. On the c o n t r a r y,"
Khalaf concluded, "it is a, cosmo-
politan club, so Americans are par-
ticularly welcome."

Roosevelt To
Set Low Duty,
He Tells Iowa
Candidate Says His Party
Aims At Big Reduction
In Tariff Rates '
Lashes President
For 1928 Statement
Says International Parley
Will Equalize American
With Foreign Markets
SIOUX CITY, Ia., Sept. 29-(All-
In a fresh onslaught upon Repub-
lican tariff policies, Franklin D.
Roosevelt tonight told thousands of
Iowans who packed into the grand-
stand of the baseball park here that
the Democratic party would put tar-
iff duties "as low as the preservation
of the prosperity of American indus-
try will permit."
The Democratic presidential nomi-
nee said the platform of his party
favored a competitive tariff which
would put American producers on a
market equality with foreign com-
He proposed that the duties be
lowered through international ne-
gotiation. By consenting to reduce
to some extent some of our duties
in order to bring about a lowering of
foreign walls that a larger measure
of our surplus may be admitted
"Next," he said, "the Democrats
propose to accomplish the necessary
reduction through the agency of the
tariff commission."
Mr. Roosevelt said that in "the
course of his 1928 campaign, the
present Republican candidate for
President with great boldness laid
down the propositions that high tar-
iffs interfere only slightly if at all
with our exports or our import trade,
that they are necessary to the suc-
cess of agriculture and afford es-
sential farm relief; that they do not
interfere with the payments of debts
to us, and that they are absolutely
necessary to the economic formula
which he proposed as the road to
abolition of poverty."
"I must pause here," he added, "to
observe that the experience of the
last four years has unhappily dem-
onstrated the error of every single
one of these propositions; that ev-
ery one of them has been one of the
effective causes of the present de-
pression; and finally that no sub-
stantial efforts toward recovery from
the depression-either here or abroad
-can be without forthright recog-
nization of these errors."
