Given New Duties With
Change In Its Name
Administration of all types of stu-
dent affairs will be effected in a new
manner in the future as the result of
the recent reorganization of that part
of the University Council pertaining
to students.
The scheme advanced by the Com-
mittee on Student Relations takes
cognizance of such matters as student
organizations, student conduct, coun-
seling, discipline, and relationships in
general, and is the result of con-
sideration by the body of the entire
organizati n and administration of
student affairs.
In general, the purpose of the
change is to clarify the channels of
communication from student groups
to University administrative units,
and to definitely indicate those agen-
cies responsible for the administra-
tion of student matters.
Change Discipline Committee
The name of the University Com-
mittee on Discipline is changed in
the report to the University.Commit-
tee on Student Conduct, and a

eral schools and colleges will remain

Although details of student gov-
erning groups have been left to the
initiative of those connected with
them, it is suggested in the report
that committees be organized by stu-
dents and function through a men's
council (whatever form it may take)
in the case of the men, and through
the Michigan League Council in tp
case of the women.
Chart Shows Procedure
As indicated in the chart on page
two of this issue, there are three
courses which may be followed in
referring any matter from the men's
student committees to University ad-
ministrative units. The normal course
to be taken in any instance will be

along the regular-lines as shown on
the chart, while the dotted lines show
courses available at all times but pri-
marily for use in unusual circum-
stances. The dotted lines lead di-
rectly into the office of the President.

CHICAGO, May 17. -(A")- What
Henry Ford said to Samuel Insul
when the pair met in Insull's hospi-
tal room was the topic of table talk
That the multimillionaire automo-
bile maker called on the former mul-
timillionaire utilities magnate as the
last errand of Ford's day at a Century
of Progress Exposition Tuesday be-
came an open secret today.
The Detroit manufacturer motored
down to the Rosenwald Industrial
Museum in Jackson Park after in-
specting his vast exhibition building
under construction at the World's
Driving back to his special car with
Rufus C. Dawes, exposition president,
he mentioned he would like to drop
off at St. Luke's Hospital and "say
hello to Sam Insull."
This on the say-so of a member
of the party, who continued:
"So Mr. Dawes dropped him off.
Mr. Ford and Mr. Insull visited about
15 minutes and engaged in a very
general conversation. They talked
about the World's Fair and rem-
inisced a bit about the old times they
both knew. This was about 3 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon. As far as I can
recall, neither of them touched on
Mr. Insull's current difficulties."
Whatever the conversation of these
two headliners touched upon in the
brief period, they had much in com-
mon to retrieve from by-gone years
for the chat. Both were close friends
of the late Thomas A. Edison (In-
sull had come to this country as
Edison's private secretary) and the

growth of the Ford and Insull for-
tunes had been parallel in the open-
ing decades of the century.
And there has been talk that their
relations with Wall Street had en-
hanced the Ford-Insull friendship.
Ford engaged in a tilt with New
York bankers in the post-war period
and emerged determined to do his
own financing independent of Wall
Street. Insull's final precipitate rush
into receiverships followed the re-
fusal of New York bankers to extend
further credit, and charges have been
made here that bankers were influ-
ential in picking the receivers.

Wherein Tradition
.;Returns -..Revival
Of The Senior Sing
The Senior Sing, which was until
1930 a traditional activity of the
graduating class, will be revived this
year through the combined efforts of
the Varsity Glee Club and the Under-
graduate Council.
Prior to its disappearance, the tra-
dition was one of the most popular
senior ceremonies and in 1930 it drew
one of the largest crowds ever to as-
semble in the middle of the diagonal,
records show.
This year's sing will be held at 7:30
p.m. Tuesday, May 22, at the band-
stand in the center of the diagonal. It
is also planned to have a sing during
Commencement week-end for return-
ing alumni.
Bernard E. Konopka, '35, manager
of the Varsity glee club, is in charge
of arrangements for both sings.
Party Lines Show
In. Tariff Debate
WASHINGTON, May 17. - (') -
Time-worn phrases about freeing the
channels of international trade and!
holding a tariff wall high enough to
protect American industries were set
against each other today in the Sen-
They marked the beginning of a
debate that, while admittedly likely
to change few votes, will set up a
semblance of the century-old dividing#
line of the parties toward which con-
tenders for congressional seats will
point again and again during the com-
ing campaign.
The bill at issue was the adminis-
tration-supported measure to give
President Franklin D. Roosevelt au-
thority to change tariffs to conform}
to trade agreements that may be nego-
tiated with other nations to stimulater
foreign trade.

Dr. Fischelis
Talks Before
Believes That Pharmacy
Associations Must Have
Mutual Confidence
Ruthven Welcomes
Conference Guests
Meeting Is Also Addressed
By Professors Pollock,
Brown, And Soule
"The object of pharmacy associa-
tions must be to develop mutual con-
fidence between all departments,"
stated Dr. Robert P. Fischelis, presi-
dent of the American Pharmaceutical
Association, at the afternoon session
of the University Pharmaceutical
Conference, held yesterday.
Pointing out the three main un-
finished tasks of modern pharmacy,
Dr. Fischelis toqk into consideration
the individual difference of students,
the standardization of regulation by
the government and a professional
solidity to compare with that which
has been developed in the medical
and dental professions.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
earlier extended an official greeting
to more than 50 pharmacists attend-
ing the conference sponsored jointly
by the College of Pharmacy, and the
Detroit branch of the American Phar-
maceutical Association.
"Lack of Efficiency"
Charging appalling lack of gov-
ernmental efficiency, Dr. James K.
Pollock, professor of political science,
the third speaker on the program,
said that basic changes in govern-
mental personnel must be-made be-
fore any economy can be effected.
"The public is indeed fortunate
if it can realize 50 dollars worth of
efficiency out 100 spent by the gov-
ernment," Dr. Pollock stated.
Three underyigg reasons for the
inefficiency of our present day gov-
ernment are, according to Dr. Pol-
lock, first, our out-moded form of
organization, i.e., the structure of
governmental units are too arbitrary,
and not in co-operation with regional
control; second, that the high degree
of maintenance costs for highways,
election, health, welfare, and prisons
are not only exorbitant, but that they
are increasing; and, thirdly, that the'
government is still on a partisan ba-
sis instead of being organized in such
a way as to get the most able men
into office.
Explains Difficulty
"The trouble lies in the fact that
we have not demanded a high degree
of efficiency from our administrative;
officers," Dr. Pollock continued.
"There is no democratic or repub-
lican way to administer," he said,
"there is only a right and wrong way;
and ours is the wrong way."
Dr. Charles L. Brown, professor of
internal medicine, declared that many
difficulties from self-medication had
arisen in pharmacy, and that the ef-
ficiency and reliability of a drug
should be thoroughly demonstrated
before it is put on the market. He
stated that the ideal of pharmacy;
should be to sell to the patient the'
best medicine which can be provided
at the smallest cost, and that the ex-
pensive frills of commercial pharmacy
should be done away with.
Hear Soule Speak

After a dinner at 6 p.m. at the
Union, the Conference met at room
165, Chemistry building, to hear Dr.
Malcolm H. Soule, professor of bac-
teriology, in his discussion of "Native
Medical and Pharmaceutical Practices.
in the Philippines."
Illustrating his lecture with gigantic
motion pictures and slides of the
islands, Dr. Soule spoke on the ad-
vances made in recent years on the
problem of leprosy cure in Culion
Island, the hospital headquarters.

German Authority Says Women
Live Under Inferiority Complex

Decrying the submersion of woman
in "a man-made world," Dr. Hans
Von Hattinberg of the Berlin Psycho-
therapeutic Institute who has been
giving special lectures here since Feb.-
ruary, spoke on "Woman's Dilemma"
yesterday afternoon in the Natural
Science Auditorium.
Women the world over have an in-
feriority complex, he said. "The Amer-
ican woman seems to prove that she
can stand as well as any man," Dr.
Von Hattinberg stated, "but on a
closer inspection the expert can see
that behind their lipstick and rouge
the majority do not feel the confi-
dence that their enticing make up
would indicate."
He criticized the feminist move-
ment in that it "would have women
imitate all man's activities." Were it
not for psychology, the whole move-
ment would not be understandable,

stated, "can -form a truly American
As it is now, "neither sex takes
each other seriously," Dr. Von Hat-
tinberg believes. This is so, he said,
because "the average man cannot de-
velop a psychological understanding
for women as the average woman can
for men." In his opinion, that whole
condition will have to be and will be
One of the most prominent hin-
drances to femininity, he declared, is
the lack of true comradeship between
women. "Such a thing is a phenom-
enon," he said.
