Rushiing Rule Changes
Also To Be Discussed;
Presidents Must Attend
A discussion of tle rulings passed
by a special committee of the Uni-
versity recently regarding fraternity
and sorority finances will be held at
the first meeting of the Interfrater-
nity Council, 7:30 p.m., Thursday,
Room 306 in the Union, according to
Philip A. Singleton, '36E, president.
The committee which passed the
legislation will be at the meeting and
will explain the reasons, for enacting
rules to the effect that if a fraternity
or sorority has unpaid accounts re-
ceivable amounting to $200or unpaid
accounts payable amounting on July 1
to $500, they will not be able to open
their houses in the fall. The rulings
will go into effect in September 1935.
The members of the committee are
Paul R. Kempf, Herbert H. Upton;
Williai Brown, and H. Segar Slifer.
"It is possible," stated Alvin H.
Schleifer, '35, secretary of the oun-
cil, "that the Council will ask the
University for certain changes and
additions to the rulings."
Changes expected to be discussed
arethat thetaccounts receivable ruling
be changed 'to a higher figure or that a
period longer than July 1 be given to
pay up accounts receivable. The pos-
sibility of petitioning the Board of Re-
gents to pass a ruling, the substance of
which would be to hold up the credits
of any fraternity or sorority member
who has not met fraternal financial
obligations, will also be considered,
Singleton -als .stated -that a dis-'
cussion will be held regarding rushing
rule changes. The point that officers
of the Council are particularly inter-
ested in is the reaction -of fraternity
members to the new tax assessed
pledges this year.
It is required by the constitution
of the Council that fraternities must
be represented by their presidents at
the meetings. Other fraternity mem-
bers, however, are invited to come to
the meeting; according to Schleifer.

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 20. - (A') -
The capture of Thomas Henry Rob-
inson, Jr., was expected by the De-
partment of Justice tonight to occur
within a few hours.
This announcement came from
Washington after a Federal grand
jury here had indicted the fugitive, his
wife, and his father for abduction of
Alice C. Stoll in terms that made the
death penalty possible for all three
in the event of conviction.
Federal officers announced discov-
ery in Nashville of a chart which
indicated by mystic symbols the loca-
tion of the kidnapers' den in Indian-
apolis. They asserted that Mrs. Rob-
inson and her father-in-law knew the
whereabouts of young Robinson prior
to the dispatch of the $50,000 ransom
The case assumed an international
aspect when reports came from Port
Erie, Ont., that a hotel man had seen
Robinson there. The story was that
Robinson was accompanied by two
men, one from Flint, Mich.
Explaining the indictment, United
States Attorney Thomas J. Sparks
said the extreme penalty for the three
accused could be exacted if the trial
jury so recommended and the court
Asked by newsmen if he intended
to press for the death penalty for
young Robinson, Sparks replied, "I
say unhesitatingly that I will do so."
Toward the other defendant, the
wife who is in jail here in default of
$50,000 bond, and the father, free in
Nashville under $25,000 bail, he was
"I don't know whether I'll ask for1
capital punishment for them or not
yet," he said. "It depends upon the
