(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is another of
the series of articles treating the early
histor, of campus institutions.)
Nothing in the way of formal or-
ganization held together the first
delegates who called themselves the
Interfraternity Conference. The "Ar-
ticles of Agreement," which they all
signed provided for representation,
a rotating chairmanship, and time
and place of meetings, but an impor-
tant provision released houses from
the obligation of obeying any of the
rules which were adopted.
"No action, motion, resolution, or
suggestion of this Conference," the
section read, "shall be deemed to be
of any binding force upon any fra-
ternity represented in the Confer-
ence, and each fraternity shall be en-
tirely free to accept and be governed
such actions, motions, resolutions,
and suggestions, in whole or in part,
or to ignore them."
Only after the University Senate
had advised fraternities to organize
more permanently was a motion
made, and later passed, "that each
delegate be given power by his crowd
(sic) to bind said crowd in a vote
in this conference.." In spite of the
revolutionary nature of the motion
they had just passed, the representa-
tives introduced another motion
which authorized the delegates to
draw up laws to be binding if win-
ning the support of three-fourths of
the fraternities.
The drafting of a constitution (al-
though it was not so called until
later) took up the attention of the
delegates during May, 1913, with the
reports of five committees considered
in one evening. That the represen-
tatives were particular in what they
allowed to go into the permanent

rules is testified by the fact that dur-
ing the first meeting more sections
were sent back to their original com-
mittees for further consideration
than were approved.
The beginning of the financial his-
tory of the conference is found in a
meager entry in the minute book of
a motion "that an assessment of 20
cents be levied on each fraternity to
cover expenses of Council." On the
same day is a crude journal, proba-
bly executed by a beginning account-
ing student, recording the payment
of the fees and showing a balance of
80 cents after certain expenses had
been paid.

Loving Relatives'
Blamed By Doctor
For Children's Ills
(By Intercollegiate Press)
TORONTO, Nov. 1.- All -grand-
mothers should be "shot" in order to
protect the health and lives of their
infant grandchildren, in the opinion
of Dr. Alan Brown, professor of ped-
iatrics at the University of Toronto.
"Loving relatives," he says, "are a
baby's worst enemies. They do not
realize that respiratory infections-
head colds and pneumonia-do not
fly in at the window but are con-
veyed from person to person by direct
contact with the breath.
"These loving relatives-and the
grandmothers are the worst of all-
come in and hang all over the baby.
They spew all over him in their
loving way. One of them has a cold
or something and passes it on to,the
poor defenseless infant."
Theologist Is Scheduled
To Come Here For Talks
Harry F. Ward, Professor of
Christian Ethics at Union Theolog-
ical Seminary in New York, will come
to Ann Arbor over the weekend of
Nov. 24, 25, and 26, for a series of
addresses and discussions on religion.
Professor Ward is being brought
here by the Student Christian As-
sociation, Presbyterian Young Peo-
ples' Society, and the State Student
Y. M. C. A. Delegates from all col-
leges in the state have been invited
to attend and it is expected that 100
will be present.
Professor Ward is well known in
religious and social circles, having
toured the country for many years
speaking on problems that arise in
religion. He has written a number of
books, among which are "The Labor
Movement,' "'The New Social Order,"
and the "Ethic of Jesus." His latest
book is entitled "In Place of Profit."
Pot Wearing In Bed Is
Latest Freshman Stunt
The epitome of greenness for this
year's class of freshmen was dis-
played in the infirmary of the Uni-
versity Health Service recently when
a young man, whose identity could
not be learned, insisted upon wear-
ing his pot in bed regardless of the
remonstrances of the attending
nurse. He would not divulge what'
caused his strange predilection, but
some allusion was made to a com-
mand by the members of the fra-
ternity to which he had been pledged.

Warning Given Against
Abuses At Health Service
StuOcnts have be(<n varned by
Health Service officials against try-
ing to secure medical attention for
non-enrolled friends by allowing
them to use their names while apply-
ing to the health service.
Besides these cases in which names
have been "loaned," practices have
been detected in which names have
been used without the owner's con-
sent. In any case, the burden. of
proof rests with the student whose
name was used, and if found guilty,
the student is reported to the dis-
ciplinary committee for action. Stu-
dents should be on the alert to de-
tect any illegal usage of their names,
officials stated.

Membership in the club is limited

duin. The club, which is one of the
first of its kind to be organized in

ocrats Club.
