After an introduction by Donal
Hamilton Haines of the journalism
department, who presided over the
first- meeting, President Ruthven
made a short address of welcome to
the assembled delegates, urging them
to continue their education after
they finished high school.
His address was followed by one
by Professor Brumm, who spoke of
"Conventions; Their Cause and
Cure." He also urged the audience to
come to college, and cautioned them
to be influenced in their choice of
journalism as a profession only by
their actual pleasure in that activity.

At 8:45 p.m. a portion of the ball-
room floor was cleared to allow some
informal dancing, and later the party

Plans Not Yet
Completed For
Senior Activity
May 1 Has Been Set As
Deadline For Swingout
Members of the Undergraduate
Committee who are endeavoring to
find some substitute plan for Swing-
out, which was abolished by the Sen-
ate Committee on Student Affairs,
reported last night that they had no
finished plan as yet although the
general outlines of another function
have been made.
The Undergradute Council, which
will have to vote upon the commit- '
tee .,plan yet, has been given until
May 1 to submit some substitute func-j
tion to the Senate Committee. After
that date, not only Swingout itself
but also all possible substitutes will
be prohibited.
Although the committee wouldr
make no official statement, it was,
learned that one of the plans upper-
most in the minds of the members
at the present time would keep the
Swingout march and would terminate
the affair in Hill Auditorium with
speeches by outstanding members of
the senior class.
This plan has not been definitely
decided upon as yet, however, and it
is possible that another will be con-
ceived instead. When all the details
have been worked out, the commit-
tee will report back to the Under-
graduate Council. The Council will
then submit the plan to the Senate
Committee, which will make the final
New Theory of
Matter Pointed
Out By Barker
The conception of matter has un-
dergone many radical changes in the
last few months, Prof. Ernest Barker
of the Physics department pointed
out in his lecture on "Modern Con-
ceptions of Matter," yesterday, in the
Natural Science Auditorium.
Dr. Barker explained that recent
experiments have shown that there
are four elementary constituents of
matter: electrons, protons, positrons,
and neutrons, whereas it was thought
there were only two: electrons and
protons. There may even be a fifth,
nutrino, which has been named, but
not observed.
Professor Barker added that a great
deal has yet to be discovered on the
new wave theories which are attract-
ing so much attention. He also said
that physicists can now study the an-
nihilation of matter, and that it may
soon be possible for them to observe
the creation of matter.
This was the last of the series of
University lectures.

Traditional Formal
Night Performance
Of OperaTonight
The largest crowd of the first three
performances attended last night's
showing of "With Banner Flying,"
25th annual Union Opera being
staged all this week at the Whitney
Officials said that there are still a
number of good seats available for
the remaining three performances,
tonight, tomorrow afternoon, and to-
morrow night. They may be obtained
at the Whitney Theatre box office
any time after 11 a.m. The matinee
seats are most abundant.
Tonight's performance will be the
traditional Formal Night, and pa-
trons will attend either in formal
evening dress or in dress uniforms,
the latter being in order to enable
members of the R.O.T.C. attending
the Military Bal also to see the opera.
Special efforts will also be made to
accommodate delegates who are now
in Ann Arbor for the Michigan Inter-
collegiate Press Association conven-
tion, Schoolmasters Club meetings,
and similar meetings.

Practically all of the changes in the
sorority rushing rules proposed by
the rushing rules committee under
the chairmanship of Margaret His-
cock, '36, were ratified yesterday by
the Panhellenic Association. The ac-
tion was taken after house presidents
had consulted with the members of
their respective houses.
A new ruling, suggested at the
meeting and passed prohibited danc-

on Saturday, as last year, but the

Summer Rushing Prohibited
Summer rushing and rushing wom-
en who plan to attend the University
in the future during the school year,
was condemned by a large vote. Any
sorority breaking this rule will not
be allowed to rush for the first three
days of formal rushing, in accordance
with this ruling.
"Rushing with men" will be pun-
ished by a penalty of cancellation of
all rushing dates with the rushee for
whom the rule is broken. A new
ruling affecting the time that the
sororities may ask for the next date,
was put through, stating that the
sorority may ask for a third date upon
the completion of the first.
Several more severe penalties have
been approved for violation of the
rules, among these, a penalty of can-
cellation of all rushing dates with
the rushee for having more than four
engagements with any one. The house
violating the time limit for engage-
ments will be forced to cancel one
date with the rushee for whom the
rule isbroken; and the sororities
which allow a rushee to attend more
than one formal at their house will
be forbidden to pledge the women for
whom the rule is broken until two
weeks have elapsed. It was decided
further that any sorority which called
for a rushee on any other than a
formal occasion would have to can-
cel all dates with the rushee.
Penalties Imposed
Other penalties imposed include a
ruling that cancellation of one date
with the rushees for whom the rule
is broken will be the punishment for
giving favors, and that if a sorority
should do any rushing outside the
house the penalty will be removal
of all rushing privileges for the fall
Silent period will extend this year

Urged To
Keynote Of Conference Is
Sounded By Voelker In
Plea For United Action
Ask 25 Millions For
Schools In 1934-35
New Aims Of Education
Are Told By Hamtramck

The keynote of the 69th meeting of
the Michigan Schoolmasters' Club
was sounded yesterday afternoon
when Dr. Paul F. Voelker, State Su-
perintendent of Public Instruction
spoke on "The Coming Battle." He
was introduced by Dr. A. H. Harrop,
of Albion College, president of the
Schoolmasters' Club.
The Schoolmasters' Club will con-
tinue today and tomorrow with sec-
tional conferences, concluding tomor-
row morning with special conferences
for teachers. The annual business
meeting for members of the club will
be held at 11:30 pm. today in Room
D, Haven Hall.
Stresses Co-Operation
The need for the united co-opera-
tion of all educators was stressed
by Dr. Voelker in his speech. "We
have just been through a battle and
some of us are battle-scarred, but
we are facing another that will make
last summer's battle seem like a mere
incident," he said. "It is going to
letermine the kind of people we are
going to educate, the kind of civili-
ation that is going to be developed
and the kind of world we are going to
[ave to live in."
Certain entrenched interests would
orovide for the magnificent educa-
ion of the few and leave the "can-
nonfodder" with little or no educa-
;ion, Dr. Voelker said. This was the
ase for many years in Germany and
the result was that only one-third of
the German youth grew up to be good
Will Need 25 Mllions
The State will need between 25 and
30 millions of dollars to carry on an
adequate educational program in its
public schools in 1934-35, according
o Dr. Voelker. At the present time
the schools are remaining open only
through faith and hope and expecta-
tion, he said. A slight sign of hope is
the increasing returns from the sales
tax which will reach their high point
this month.
Although the taking of money from
liquor sales taxes may be distasteful
to some of the teachers, money from
anywhere would be welcome in the
present crisis, Dr. Voelker said.
In speaking of vocational education
Dr. Voelker said, "The time must
ome when one-half of our effort
must be turned to teaching boys to
earn a living by teaching them a
trade. I would like to see every boy
who possibly can learn a trade to
learn one in our vocational schools."
Hamtramck Educator Speaks
The second speaker on the program
of the general session was M. R.
Keyworth, superintendent of schools
in Hamtramck. A member of the
Michigan Educational Planning Com-
mission, he spoke on the "Purpose
and General Goals of Public Educa-
tion in Michigan."
Following a statement of Dr. Voel-
ker's that a change in the aims of
education might possibly stimulate
more interest in the problems of edu-
cation among the laymen, Mr. Key-
worth mentioned eight aims of mod-
ndn education which can be summed
up in the statement that modern edu-
cation aims to cultivate a deep re-
gard for democracy and to develop
those qualities of character which are
of special significance in a democracy.
Dr. Voelker also spoke yesterday
noon at a luncheon in the Union
sponsored by the Michigan Associa-
tion of Departments of Education in
Private Colleges on the question,
"What evidence is There That Mich-
igan is Developing a More Effective
Program of Teacher-Training?"
"The evidence you want is right
here in this room," he told the 80 col-
lege professors and school superin-
tendents present. Stressing the fact
that "our social order has undergone
a great change," he said that now,
more than ever before, it is neces-
sary to prepare teachers for that
"We must define the goals of edu-
cation in terms of the new order,"
