Military Training Ru e
(By Intercollegiate Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.- In re-
fusing to review an appeal challeng-
ing the Maryland 1a w requiring
teaching of military training at the
state university; the United States
Supreme Court last week in effect
upheld the right of the University
of' Maryland to require its students
to take the military course.;
The case was that of Ennis H.
Coale, a conscientious objector who
was ousted from the University 'when
he refused to accept the military
training as part of his schedule.

Following an old campus custom

Some of the fraternities inaugura-

According to Bethel B. Kelly, presi-

the Ann Arbor Welfare League the
Council has been able to assemble the

LANSING, Dec. 11. - () - Gov.
Comstock will not interfere with the
sentence imposed upon Henry Sass,
of Ionia, for violation of the liquor
law, he said today. The governor de-
clared he had investigated Sass' rec-
ord sufficiently to convince him the
sentence was justified.
He asserted Sass has been a con-

The governor investigated the case
following reports that Sass had been

Important To Style
With the pert little turbans and
berets which leave most of the head
uncovered, and the scintillating tiaras
for nightly wear which attract atten-
tion to the hair, a good-looking coif-
fure is important for beauty.
One of the most charming arrange-
ments this season is a fairly short
bob combed back from the face in
loose waves with a mass of curls cov-
ering the back of the head almost to
the crown. It gives the air of sweet
sixteen to any miss.
Anether becoming coiffure is the
coronet effect for long hair, which
consists of a braid or strand bound
around the head. Nothing can make
one more regal and stately, especially
when it is worn with one of those
new formals ending in a queenly littleI
I-owever important the style of theI
coiffure, it is still secondary to the
actual condition and beauty of the
hair. Frequent shampoos and the old.
standard prescription of vigorous1
brushing make the hair glamorousf
and gleaming. And for the busy1
woman who has to squeeze in beauty
'parlor appointments by split seconds,
the dry shampoo is a life-saver. There
are several new products on the mar-
ket, generally consisting of a pow-
dered oris root base, which for little
money will keep the hair as clean
and shiny and fluffy as a regular

At Y.W.C.A. Club
A Christmas dance is being given
by the Supper Club of the Y.W.C.A.
from 9 until 12 p. m. Thursday, Dec.
14, in the Unitarian Social Hall for
members of the club and their
Armand Phillip's orchestra will fur-_
nish the music for the dance, for
which tickets will 'be available at the
YW.C.A., Miss Ethel Swarthout, gen-.

Miss Mabel Le Mar is acting as
ticket chairman, and Miss Lottie

and Miss Lillian Swartout are chair-

A reduction of more than 2,000
members has been suffered by 685
national fraternities since the school
year 1929-30, when there were 19,-
057 men enrolled in those organiza-
tions which reported to the Interfra-
ternity Conference, according to fig-
ures released recently by conference
officials. There are at present 16,971
men who are members, the decline
being 11 per cent.
That fraternities are 'letting down
the bars" on their membership re-
quirements is shown by the fact that
whereas the decline in total member-
ship was 11 per cent, the number of
pledges to the same fraternities de-
clined only eight per cent. The num-
ber of men who could afford to take
the formal initiation ceremonies has
declined by 22 per cent.
The average active chapter was re-
ported by the conference as being 27.8
men in 1929-30, as compared with
24.8 men for this year.
The section of the country that
suffered most from the drop-off in
the number of members is the Rocky
Mountain district, while the north
central part of the country, including;
the states of Illinois, Michigan, Iowa,
Wisconsin, Indiana, and Ohio, was
the next in line in the decline. Initia-
tions fell off by 36.3 per cent and
pledges 13.5 per cent.
"Like industry," the report says in
its concluding paragraphs, "the fra-
ternity system, riding on a wave of
increasing membership, has become
overbuilt. The crushing burden of
overhead which goes on whether
there are three or thirty men living
in the house will take its toll on many
campuses which were overbuilt even
in better times."
