Help University Scholars
Aid In Many Fields

Appropriation Is Divided
Into 4 Funds; Largest
Goes To Archeology
Four grants totalling $53,800 have
been made to the University by the
Rockefeller Foundation for the Ad-
vancement of Science to aid in re-
search during the academic year
1934-35. Notification of the award,
which was approved April 11, was
made public by University authori-
ties yesterday.
The appropriation is divided as
follows: $25,000 for research in arch-
eology, $15,000 for research in psy-
chiatry, $8,800 for aid in developing
spectroscopy as applied to medicine,
and $5,000 for inquiry in the physiol-
ogy of respiration.
Will Continue Work
The money given for the studies in
the humanities will be used for a
continuation of the work done by the
Institute of Archeological Research,
composed of faculty members, which
has published about 10 volumes deal-
ing with archeological and human-
istic subjects, working on funds sup-
plied by the General Education Board,
an affiliated Rockefeller organization.
The work was started under the
late Prof. Francis W. Kelsey shortly
after the World War and has included
publication of a description of Uni-
versity Egyptian excavations, Dr. Le-
Roy Waterman's works on the cor-
respondence of the Assyrian kings,
and the University's collection of pap-
yrus manuscripts.
The award of $15,000 for the de-
velopment of teaching research in
psychiatry will be administered by
Prof. Albert M. Barrett, head of the
psychiatry department in the Medi-
cal School and director of the State
Psychopathic Hospital here.

methods of rapid analysis to medi-
cine and to biology received a fund
of $8,800, which will be used jointly
by the department of internal medi-
cine in the Medical School and the
physics department in the literary
college. Prof. Ora S. Duffendack of
the physics department, Prof. Lewis
H. Newburgh of the Medical School,
and Dr. Frank H. Wiley of the Medi-

School, to continue his studies along
that line in which he has been en-
gaged for a number of years.
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
has already given the University's
thanks to the Foundation for the

WASHINGTON, April 19-(JP)-
White House conferences and com-

That measure, somewhat altered
by its stay in committee rooms,
emerged again into the light of day
on both sides of the Capitol.

Mortality Rate
For Fraternity
Pledges High
Report Shows Sororities
Also Suffer By Losing
Many Freshmen
Only 58.6 per cent of the freshmen
pledged to fraternities and sororities
last September have been initiated, it
was disclosed yesterday in a report
compiled by the office of the dean of
The sororities did slightly better
than the fraternities in initiating
pledges, the report showed.
Of the 374 men of the class of 1937
who were taken into fraternities in
September, 213, or 56.9 per cent, are
at present active members. Sororities
took in 181 freshmen and initiated
112 for a rating of 61.9 per cent.
The figures were compiled from
reports which the houses themselves
filled out on two different occasions,
once last fall and once shortly before
Spring Vacation.
In commenting upon the results of
the compilation, Prof. Phillip E. Burs-
ley, counselor to new students, said
that he had made no effort tn deter-

Sororities Must

Says Aliee Lloyl
De.auvaf-Women Speaks Tfo
Group At The University
Of West Virginia
Sororities must create new pur-
poses for themselves and become
more significant in the intellectual
life of the college community, Dean
Alice C. Lloyd told undergraduate
sorority women and alumni at the
University of "West Virginia, wvhere
she was guest speaker at conference
discussions of sorority problems on
Tuesday and Wednesday.
"The sorority must be less exclu-
sively social," Miss Lloyd declared
Tuesday night at a formal reception
at which every sorority woman in
Morgantown, W. Va., was a guest.
Her topic was "The Position of So-
rorities in Present-Day Education."
"Sororities are more or less forced
by present educational trends to
change their purpose from being
merely social clubhouses to being
something more significanthe i mthe
actual intellectual life of the cam-
pus," Miss Lloyd said yesterday, re-
iterating some of her statements
made at the West Virginia confer-
ence. "The general trend all over
the country toward increasing hous-
ing in dormitories has taken away
one of the most valuable services of
the sororities, the purpose which mo-
tivated them in the beginning, and
they must make new places for them-
Miss Lloyd, who is chairman of the
committee on sorority study for the
Association of Deans of Women, was
invited by Miss Margaret Wilburn,
prominent sorority woman on the
West Virginia campus, to visit Mor-
gantown and lead alumnae and un-
dergraduate sorority women and
house mothers in discussions of so-
rority problems. The invitation was
extended at the time of the annual
national deans' conference held in
February in Cleveland, at which Miss

That's one of the things Sally did,
say after her performance with the
football chorus of the Union Opera at
the Michigan Theatre. She explained
that a large part of the people who,
come to see her dance are merely
curious (maybe wondering if one of
her famous fans will slip.)
It was a revelation, and a testi-{

she came in the theatre two hours
later for the appointment. The chorus

Celebrated Artists To Present
Beethoven's 'Ninth Symphony'

Among the outstanding features to
be presented in the varied program
of the May Festival, May 9, 10, 11, and
12, is the performance of Beethoven's
famed "Ninth Symphony" to be
given Saturday afternoon by such re-
nowned stars as Jeanette Vreeland,
soprano; Coe Glade, contralto; Ar-
thur Hackett, tenor; and Theodore
Webb, baritone. In addition, the
Choral Union and the Chicago Sym-
phony Orchestra, under Dr. Frederick
Stock, will also be heard.
The history of the "Ninth Sym-
nhnnv" is nne of the most interesting

fell into the active volcano of Bee-
thoven's unconsciousness, fusions,
seethings, and eruptions began to take
place, out of which came the fin-
ished "Ninth Symphony."
Like many great works of its type,
the "Ninth" has its inception in suf-
fering. This characteristic is traced to
those years of the deaf, lonely, pov-
erty-stricken composer in which he
was surrounded by indifferent and
dishonest friends and unfeeling rela-
tives. But the "Ninth" shows the
heroic spirits of a great man match-
ing his misfortunes.
