On Breach Of

By Council Fo Giving

Judiciary Committee Goes
On Record As Opposing
Publication Of Names
The fraternity found guilty of vio-
lating the rushing rules of the Inter-
fraternity Council will be prohibited
from pledging the freshmen illegally
rushed until the beginning of the
second semester, according to a de-
cision of the Judiciary Committee of
the coundil which was announced
last night.
The three freshmen who accepted
the pledge buttons in violation of the
rules will be prohibited from pledging
any fraternity until after Nov. 1, ac-
cording to the decision.
Although the committee refused to
divulge the name of the fraternity
it was learned that the local chapter
of Phi Delta Theta was the house.
The passing, out of pledge buttons
to freshmen before the offcial pledg-
ing time of Monday, Oct. 9, was rul-
ed a violation of the rule which
states, "No binding promise regarding
pledging shall be entered into by fra-
ternity and rushee during the above
specified rushing period."
The punishment meted out was
said to be the lightest that was pos-
sible under the circumstances, other
alternatives being social probation,
suspension, or the denial of privilege
of holding open houses, privilege of
pledging, and the privilege of ini-

The Judiciary Committee went
firmly on record as promising more
severe action it the case of any vio-
lation of the period of silence which

be judged on its own merits, he de-
No action was taken on the viola-
tions which were reported to officials
of the council, but further violations
by the same house will be the occas-

Minor infractions of the rules have
been tolerated heretofore, according
to Kelley, but violations of the silence
period will probably be more severely

(Associated Press Sports Editor)
NEW YORK, Oct. 3 -Unshaken
either by the faltering defense of his
teammates or the enemy's closing
threats, the great Carl Owen Hubbell
throttled the big guns of the Wash-
ington Senators today and pitched
the New York Giants to victory, 4 to

Just as National Leaguers had
hoped and their rivals had feared,

ful despite the background of a shaky
defense at critical moments.
Hubbell held the hard-swinging

of them, including the first three

Reed Murder
Trial Jury .Is
Finally Picked
Rapp's Attempt To Show
Photographic Evidence
Balked By Defense
The trial of George D. Reed.
charged with the murder of his for-
mer wife, got under way at 3:30 p. m.
yesterday afternoon shortly after the
new jury had been impaneled before
Judge George W. Sample in Circuit
Reed entered a not guilty plea
based on temporary insanity at the
time of the murder. Edward Conlon,
Detroit attorney for the defense,
stated that Reed was driven insane
by the actions and threats of his
former wife, the nagging of her
friends, and love for his child.
Every attempt of Prosecutor Albert
J. Rapp to introduce photographic
evidence, including pictures of the
body, was successfully balked by the
Detroit attorney.
Reed showed little emotion during
the presentation of evidence by the
witnesses, and sat most of the time
with his head resting on one arm.
The trial, which was slated to begin
at 10 a. m., was delayed because of
a technicality in the selection of the
jury. The trial will be resumed at 9
a. m. today.

N.S.L.'s Plan
Set Back By
House Heads
Fraternity Men Declare
Added Financial Burden
Would Be Excessive
Council Is Unable
To Reach Barnaud
No Complaints Received
From Workers; Report
Jobs Not Difficult
The plan of the National Student
League to increase student employ-
ment by forcing the fraternities and
sororities to live up to the restaurant
code of the NRA received a set-back
yesterday when a number of prom-
inent fraternity men declared that
that they could not stand the added
financial burden of hiring more stu-
Presidents of several houses stated
that, if necessary, the men in their
houses would do the work. A survey
shows that a large percentage of the
waiters and dishwashers in frater-
nities are fraternity men who have
been forced to take up work because
of the depression.
A. J. Barnaud, Federal NRA ad-
ministrator for Michigan, could not
be reached last night, but, it was
learned that a decision on the matter
would be in the hands of C. W, Light-
hall, local NRA chief.
No complaints have come from
those students now employed, but,
several men who do have jobs are in
back of the move to put the NRA
restaurant code into effect. The Na-
tional Student League has taken up
the cause, and members of the or-
ganization declared last night that
a 100 more students would be put to
work by the plan, thereby enabling
them to remain in the University.
Waiters and dishwashers in fra-
ternities and sororities have been re-
ceiving the same relative pay - three
meals a day - for many years. The
work is not particular y hard, accord-
ing to the consents of opinion
among stewards, and although ap-
proximately 18 or 20 hours a week is'
required of their services, it is not
continuous work.'

Harvard Dean Shifts
His Views On Hitler
(By Intercollegiate Press)
CAMBRIDGE; Mass., Oct. 3.-
A summer in Europe served to "
convince Dean Henry Holmes of
the Harvard University graduate
school that the Hitler government
in Germany is not so bad after all.I
On his return Dean Holmes said
that he now believed Hitler was
"something Germany needed, and
may turn out well."
"I think that reports of Hitler's
oppression of the Jews has been
exaggerated. The main thing is
that Germany, which has been 1
fighting against tremendous odds
imposed on her by the Versailles
Treaty, has regained self-respect,
unity and confidence."

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3.--('P)-Fire
Chief Ralph Scott said late today
that at least 15 men were known to
have died when they were trapped by
a fire in the hills above Hollywood
and other investigators who went to
the scene of the flames said they
had counted 22 dead and between 75
and 100 injured.
The fire apparently was started,
authorities said, when a workman
threw a cigarette into some brush.
The tinder-like undergrowth, exceed-
ingly dry after several days ofnear-
record October heat, burst into a
towering mass of flames.
Unemployed relief workers, about
150 in number, had been sent into
the hills in connection with improve-
ment projects launched through the

State Board Weighs
Colleges' Demands
Houghton College Wants
$1,000,000; Stack Says
School Is Superfluous
LANSING, Oct. 3.-(P)-Fearing
huge future tax burdens for the
maintenance of useless State insti-
tutions, members of the State Ad-
ministrative Board balked today at
blanket approval of public works
building projects.
Patrick H. O'Brien, attorney-gen-
eral, placed before the board a pro-
posal that Washington authorities be
asked immediately to approve the ex-
penditure of $1,000,000 at the College
of Mining and Technology, $1,050,000
at the University of Michigan; $325,-
000 at Ionia hospital, and $196,500 at
the Lapeer Training School, as part
of the State's anticipated $25,000,000
of Federal aid.
John K. Stack, auditor-genera,
criticized the suggestion that a mIu-
lion dollars be spent at the mining
"I would like to have someone ex-
plain to me why that institution
needs that amount," he said. "The
college should be merged with some
other State college anyway. It is un-
necessary. What I am afraid of is
that we will get a lot of white ele-
phant State buildings that will cost
the taxpayers barrels of money to
O'Brien replied vigorously that he
considered the Houghton institution
a valuable and necessary part of the
State educational system. He declared
it is recognized throughout the na-
Murray D. Van Wagoner, State
highway commissioner, while he did
not enter the dispute over the mining
college, stated he is opposed, as a
matter of policy, to loading the tax-
payers with buildings and institutions
which are not necessary. Both he and
Stack finally concurred with other
board members in approving send-
ing theproposal to Washington, with
the reservation that they had not
bound themselves to vote for enter-
ing a contract for Federal aid for any
individual institution. They said they
would survey each proposal as the
government indicates whether or not
funds will be available.
The State Board of Education
asked the board to recommend the
expenditure of $1,000,000 at Michigan
State Normal College, $168,000 at Mt.
Pleasant, $1,000,000 at Kalamazoo
and $5,000 at Northern. No action
was taken.
