In Order To Satisfy The

Winter's Parting Thrust Taxes
Residents; Sol Saves The Day

Old Man Winter's parting thrust,
the heaviest March snowfall in 25
years, brought Ann Arbor people out
yesterday morning with all conceiv-
able types of "wading" clothes which
could be hastily assembled.
Early-risers who were out ahead
of the city plows found even walk-
ing, always the last resort, somewhat
of a problem and took to the roads.
Appearance of the sun, however,
began melting the "blanket" and
transportation was relieved.
The average depth of snowfall in
the city was 11.2 Inches as recorded
by the University Observatory, while
nearly two feet was reported in the
nearby country. Roads were impas-
sible, traffic stalled, rural mail de-
livery tied up, and many commuting
students marooned. Busses were also
far off schedule, and railroads ap-
peared to be the only mode of trans-
portation out of Ann Arbor unim-
In spite of the fact that, where
clear, the roads were icy, there were
no accidents. However, several stu-
dents were injured by falling.
Communication was kept intact

around Ann Arbor, but the Michigan
Bell Telephone Company reported 1~
poles down outside Monroe, due to
heavy sleet in that region.
Large crews of men were employed
by both the city and the University to
shovel the snow, and while the CWA
itself did not aid in clearing the heavy
drifts, many CWA men werehem-
ployed by such institutions as the
public schools and by privatesindi-
viduals for that purpose.
The city of Ann Arbor employed 50
men and many trucks, and estimated
that such snows as this cost $350 a
day. The city men made strenuous
efforts to clear the streets yesterday
afternoon, as it was hoped that the
snow would soon melt.
Monday's storm was the heaviest
this year, the observatory stated, and
the fifth deepest recorded in Ann
Arbor since 1910. The deepest snow
ever registered at the University Ob-
servatory was 14 inches in January
of 1918.
One ingenious merchant on South
University avenue hung a sign on a
tree in front of his establishment,
reading, "Free Snow - Help Your-
self." No acceptances of the offer
were reported.

ter, '34SM, Caroline Welz, '35, Suz-
anne Malve, '355M, Goddard Light,

son, '36.
Much of the vitality of the play
depends on the chorus of 15 couples,
which forms a background of singing
and dancing for the action of the
principals. A special feature of the
dancing in the opera is the elaborate
Spanish dance, the cachuca, which is
being done by Harry Pick, '34, Vir-
ginia Frink, '35, Carl Ellsworth, '34A,
Josephine Ball, '36, Daniel Shurz, '36,

Roosevelt To
Permit Lines
To Fly Mail
Action To Be Followed By
Permanent Legislation
For Air Mail Control
Plans For Bidding
Will Be Announced
Conditions Under Which
Bids Will Be Accepted
Not Revealed
WASHINGTON, March 27. - () -
President Roosevelt arranged today
to return the airmail to private com-
panies, pending enactment of perma-
nent legislation.
Plans for bidding and the routes
to be opened to commercial carriers
will be announced tomorrow.
Government officials, including
Postmaster General James A. Far-
ley and Attorney General Homer S.
Cummings, were called to the White
House this afternoon just before the
President left for a fishing trip in
the south.
Conditions under which new bids
will be accepted were not disclosed
and whether those companies whose
contracts were cancelled would be
permitted to enter the bidding was
not entirely clear.
Cummings said that he did not be-
lieve a statute of 1872, which bars
firms whose mail contracts have been
annulled on the grounds of fraud
from bidding again within five years,
would be an obstacle in letting the
temporary awards.
Several measures have been in-
troduced in Congress, since the Army
took over flying the mails on Feb.
19, to authorize the Postmaster Gen-
eral to make temporary awards. It
was indicated that the Postoffice and
Justice Departments felt that power
now existed to enter temporary con-
tracts without additional legislation.
Meanwhile, private companies
which held old contracts wondered
if they would be forced to undergo
reorganization to be eligible for new

Sororities Consider Abolition
Or Modification Of Hell-Week

With the general sentiment for
either modification or absolute aboli-
tion of hell-week prevalent on cam-
pus, sororities are considering the
matter now, and will finally take ac-
tion for or against it in their sep-
arate houses.
In a survey of the sororities, two
reported that they have national rul-
ings against the custom; two have
what they term a "courtesy week" for
the pledges; and still another names
it,"ideal week." Several claim that
their probation week has undergone,

it in Theta Phi Alpha, the president'
of that house reported. Zeta Tau
Alpha, according to Myrtle Cooper,
'34, president, abolished the custom
last year.
Chi Omega and Alpha Delta Pi
are the two houses with national
rules against hell-week. These houses
report that satisfactory pledge re-
lationships are obtained through
training in sorority history and cus-
toms. Helen Bernthal, '34, Delta
Delta Delta president, stated yester-
day that in their "ideal week" the
