8,224 students are now enrolled in
all the departments of the University
as compared with 7,062 at a cor-

Jobs By 750

With the FERA quota of 903
student workers filled anda scar-
city of board jobs prevalent, of fi-
cials of the University Employ-
ment Bureau today face the task
of finding work for approximately
750 job-seeking students.
Members of the FERA commttee
are working day and night assign-
ing jobs to applicants accepted.
Yesterday 50 post cards were sent
out informing students to report
for work and it is expected that
75 more will be sent out tonight.
Latest figures revealed that 1,-
500 students applied for FERA
work and about 150 for board,
room, and part-time work, through
the employment bureau in the of-
fice of the Dean of Students.
According to Miss Elizabeth A.
Smith, director of FERA place-
ments, under the federal student
relief agreement, 450 jobs must go
to newly enrolled students while
the other 450 jobs must be as-
signed to old students. Of each
450, one third or 150 must be
granted to girls. The minimum
wage per month is $10 and the
maximum $15.
Gargoyle Will
Contain Many
New Features
Add Short Story Contests
And Subscription Offer'
To Humor Magazine
A monthly short story contest, new
cartoons, photography, and articles
in addition to a special subscription5
offer, feature this year's issues of they
Gargoyle, campus humor magazine.
Throughout the year, Gargoyle will
sponsor a short story contest which
is open to all University students, ac-
cording to Eric Hall, '35, managing
The contest will be run monthly
and will carry a prize of $10 each
issue to the winning manuscript as
well as publication of the story in the,
magazine, Hall announced.
The campus-wide sale of the Gar-
goyle which began last week will con-
tinue through Saturday. A double
subscription to Gargoyle and Life for
nine months is being offered for $1.25,
thus giving a substantial saving on
both magazines. In addition, a nine
month offer of $4 for Gargoyle, Time,
and Life is being made.
Other magazines which are being
presented along with Gargoyle at spe-
cial prices include Colliers, Esquire,
Vanity Fair, Vogue, and American.
The deadline for the short story
contest in the first issue is October
1, Hall stated. For the November issue,
all manuscripts must be in before Oc-
tober 20. Manuscripts should be of
the short. short story type, and must
not exceed 1,000 words. They need
not be humorous, Hall said, merely
because they are being written for a
humor magazine.
"The short story contest," he com-
mented, "is the outstanding feature
of the new Gargoyle, since this is an
entirely novel experiment in college

400 Freshmen
Meet Council
Rushing Fee
Singleton Outlines Plan
For Reducing Waste In
Pledging_ ystem
Money Derived Will
Be FairlyDivided
Registration Is Merely To
A c q u a i n t Fraternities
With Prospects
Approximately 400 students have
expressed a wish to be rushed by
fraternities by registering at the In-
terfraternity Council files in the Un-
ion, according to Alvin P. Schleifer,
'35, secretary.
Five hundred students pledged
fraternities last year so officials of
the Council are highly pleased with
the number of persons who register
ed under the new system.
Phillip Singleton, '35E, president of
,the Council, said yesterday that
many freshmen have an erroneous
impression of the plan. "They seem
to feel that by registering they are
pushing themselves upon fraterni-
ties and asking to be rushed. They
do not realize that they are merely
making their addresses and phone
numbers available," he said.
Another objection to the plan cited
by Singleton is that rushees believe
it just another tax for money-mak-
ing purposes.
"The money derived f om registra-
tion will go for several purposes,"
Singleton stated. First, it is being
'used to provide an adequate set of
files for fraternity use. Second, to
eliminate to a certain extent "chis-
eling" of meals by rushees who never
have any idea of pledging.
Third, some good men arrive on
the campus and are never rushed,
according to Singleton. Under the
new plan, such an occurrence is un-
The taxing system helps fraterni-
ties because the money taken in goes
to alleviate the membership dues of
the fraternities in the Council.
The money is apportioned fairly
because the houses pledging the most
men are indirectly paying more reg-
stration fees, said Singleton.
The Interfraternity Council office,
on the third floor of the Union, will
be open for registration by rushees
and for examination of files by frat-
ernity members between 3 p. m. and
5 p. m. every day.
Union President Urges
Immediate Registration
With less than 1,000 students
registered for Union memberships,
President Allen D. McCombs, '35,
urged that all men undergraduates
who have not already become
members for the current year reg-
ister immediately.
McCombs emphasized that stu-
dents will be required to identify
themselves in the future with
membership cards, which they will
receive at the time of registration,
if they desire to avail themselves
of the privileges of the building.
All men students in the Uni-
versity are eligible for membership
and need only present their tuition
receipts to register. Student com-
mitteemen will be in the offices on

the first floor of the Union build-
ing from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. every
afternoon for the purpose of regis-

TriplehornAt Half
William Renner, Varsity quarter-
back and passer, will be out of the
line-up for from four to six weeks
because of a fracture of a small boner
in his left ankle received in Satur-
day's scrimmage, it was reported late
yesterday after X-ray examination
of what was supposedly a slight in-i
Coach Harry Kipke was building his
entire attack around an aerial game
featuring Renner and said last .night
that loss of the fragile quarterbackc
would necessitate a complete revamp-t
ing of his line-up and plan of attack.i
Russell Oliver, made over from a
fullback to a half at the start of this
season, will now probably go to quar-
ter. Regeczi will remain at full andr
Vincent Aug and Howard Triplehornt
will fill the halfback positions. Fer-
ris Jennings, diminutive sophomore,
will inherit the first string reserve
quarterback post.
Renner is virtually certain to be out
of three games: Michigan State, Oct.e
6; Chicago, Oct. 13; and Georgia
Tech, Oct. 20, but might be sufficient-I
ly recovered to be used for a short
time in the Illinois game, Oct. 27, and
the Minnesota battle a week later.1
Kipke will probably use Renner when
he returns in the same way he did
last year, as a reserve quarter to be
shot into the game when the stage ist
set for a pass or when the threat ofI
a pass is needed to spread the defense.1
Saturday's scrimmage took further
toll among backfield candidates whent
George Bolas tore several ligaments
in his left leg while making a tackle.,
Bolas, who was a reserve quarterback
last season, will be out for at least1
a month.r
Dr. Frank Lynam, team physician,
described Renner's injury as very
similar to that received by Jack Hes-
ton two years ago. A fracture of the
same small bone kept Heston outJ
for three weeks.
Kipke yesterday gave RegecziOliv-I
er, and Aug a long passing drill in
the hope of developing a fair, if not
brilliant, aerial attack before theI
Michigan State game Oct. 6. How-
ever, he will also place greater stress
on building a capable running game
around Triplehorn.
Activity booklet

To Engineers
Pamphlet Giving Details
Of Campus Activities To
Be Gift Of Technic
Designed to aid all Engineering
students, particularly freshmen, who
desire to participate in campus activi-
ties, a booklet of information will be

distributed at the Engineering As-
sembly at 11:00 Wednesday through
the courtesy of the Michigan Technic,
Joseph E. Wagner, '35E, editor of the
magazine, announced last night.
The booklet, entitled "A Preview of
Activities Open to Engineers," deals
individually with more than twenty
different lines of endeavor, explain-
ing the requirements, the organiza-
tion, and the complexities of each.
Prefaced by introductory remarks
by President Alexander G. Ruthven
and Dean Herbert C. Sadler of the
College of Engineering, the booklet
is divided into sections on The Engi-
neering Council, the Honor Council,
professional societies, honor societies,
publications, and the Michigan Union.
The purpose of the pamphlet, ac-
cording to Wagner, is to eliminate
the apprehension and uncertainty
which hampers most "green" men in
going out for activities. At present,
he added, a beginner must actually
enter and take part in an activity
before he really can find out just
what it is like.

which books will be accepted in an

The members voted to award a $25

able to set a definite date for the
local presentation of the production
of the Union, at the student offices
on the first floor of the Union.
Students interested in writing
either music or lyrics for the new pro-
duction are also requested to com-
municate with McCombs.
William A. Dickert, who appeared
in the production last year, "With
Banners Flying," was appointed
chairman of the book committee and
will handle all manuscripts submitted,
according to Brownson.
the last school week in December
prior to Christmas vacation was se-
lected as a tentative date.
Officials of the organization refused
to comment on whether the produc-
tion will make a road trip of neigh-
boring cities.
The Union opera was revived last
year with the production, "With Ban-
ners Flying," after it had been dis-
continued because of financial diffi-
culties following the 1929 show.
The first production of the show
was in 1907, and from that time
until 1929 an opera was given every
year except one, during the war. It
grew from a local show with one
presentation to a campus tradition!
and became so popular that each
opera was presented in New York,
Detroit, Cleveland, and various other
cities during Christmas vacation.
City Council Plans
New Sewage Plant
At a special meeting held last night,
the Common Council voted to adver-
tise the sale of $345,000 worth of sew-
age revenue bonds, thus taking one
more step in compliance with gov-
ernmental regulations for Public
Works Admiiistration loans.
With $120,000 more promised by the
PWA if present negotiations are com-
pleted, this means that Ann Arbor
will have approximately $450,000 to
begin work on its sewage plant, tenta-
tively planned to start by the end
of this year.
A letter from Mortimer E. Cooley,
state engineer, was read, in which he
expressed himself as "very optimistic"
that the government money would
be forthcoming as soon as Ann Arbor
had met qualifications.

Lindbergh Will
Testify Against
Case Against Hauptmann
Defies Defense Claim Of
Airtight Alibi
(Copyright, 1934, by The Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Sept. 24 - Three
agencies of the law-detectives gath-
ering fresh clues, prosecutors building
an extortion case, and New Jersey
officials pressing a murder charge-
moved forward tonight against Bruno
Richard Hauptmann, imprisoned as
the key man in the Lindbergh kidnap-
On the defense side, attorney James
M. Fawcett asserted he had informa-
tion, which, if corroborated, would
"split the case wide open," and term-
ed an explanation of possession of the
ransom money, received in a long
personal conference with Haupt-
mann, a "very good" one. Fawcett
withheld details.
The attorney said he had his own
investigators at work over a consid-
erable area and their inquiry would
require several weeks. Meantime, he
planned to talk to Hauptmann daily.
Fawcett said he could not answer
numerous questions because he had
heard his client already had been
indicted. He would not amplify that
statement. District attorney Samuel
J. Foley said he expected an indict-
ment Wednesday, the day Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh will appear be-
fore the Bronx grand jury making the
extortion investigations.
Consulting with H. N o r m a n
Schwartkopf, superintendent of state
police, Attorney David T. Willintz of
New Jersey said kidnaping and mur-
der would be charged against Haupt-
mann. Seven "John Doe" murder
indictments already are available in
New Jersey, but Willentz said it like-
ly would be next week before extradi-
tion proceedings would be started.,
Following up the statement of a
physician that he had treated Haupt-
mann in 1933 for a leg injury induced
perhap's by a sprain or fracture, in-
vestigators decided to X-ray Haupt-
mann's ankle.

The resolution of the committee
was largely based upon the result of
ast year's enforcement of the tradi-
ion which showed, declared commit-
tee meri'bers, that the tradition is
"now out-dated." The council did not
express disapproval of pot-wearing in
itself, but decided that it was inad-
visable to continue the tradition under
present conditions.
The effect of the action will be
the same as an actual prohibition on
pot-wearing, council members believe,
as strong support has always been
necessary to enforce it. This is the
first time that the tradition has not
been supported at least at the start
of the school year.
Checked Movement Last Year
A movement against the tradition
was checked at the beginning of last
year when, the old Undergraduate
Council passed a resolution to sup-
port the tradition and secured the
active support of some fraternities
and of student leaders in campus ac-
Support of the lass games tradi-
tion was pledged by the executive
committee in a second resolution
passed at the meeting. This action
was based upon the successful. revival
f the games last year after a seeming
apse in popularity, council members
stated. The games will be managed,
this year at least, by the Union, which
instituted the drive for the revival of
the games last fall.
Committee Empowered
In the reorganization of the Under-
graduate Council which was carried
out last spring, an executive council
of four members was created to carry
on the active powers of the Council,
one of which is the power either to
enforce or to drop traditions. Mem-
bers of the executive committee in-
clude the managing editor of The
Daily and presidents of the council,
the Women's League and the Union.
The committee, which was created
to increase the effectiveness of the
council as a promotor and co-ordina-
tor of campus activities, carries on
the ordinary work which the whole
body has been dealing with, saving
the necessity of calling frequent meet-
ings of the more cumbersome group.
First Meeting Wednesday
The entire body is to be assembled
by the executive committee when its
members consider it advisable to se-
cure a concensus in regard to any
question and when officers and mem-
bers of the judicial committee are
to be elected.
The first regular meeting of the
entire Undergraduate Council will be
held at 5:00 p.m.Wednesday in the
Union for the election of judicial
committee members according to
Hilty. As well as acting as an organ
of the council, members of the judicial
committee also sit with the faculty
disciplinary committee where they
hold the power of recommendation.
Other matters to be considered are
the suggestion that class presidents
be included in the membership of the

Kipke Describes Zone System
In "Watch That Lateral Pass"

Men Of '38 Surpass Former
Classes In Physical Condition

Head Football Coach Harry G.+
Kipke has for the third time ventur-
ed into the journalistic field, writing
a long article entitled "Watch That
Lateral Pass" for the Saturday eve-
ning Post, on sale today.
In his latest article, written with
the assistance of Harold A. Fitzger-
ald, Kipke comments on "grandstand
quarterbacks" and their place in the
game, saying that he likes the techni-
cal interest in the game showed by the
spectators. When spectators no long-
er hold post mortems or tell us how
to run our teams, football will be on
the wane, he writes.
The bulk of the article is concern-
ed with the duties of the quarterback
in calling plays. Kipke divides the

on. either first or second down and
use simple plays only, no passes.
The area between the two 40-yards
lines is described by Kipke as the
zone where long passes are permis-
sable. The quarterback should kick
after two downs unless seven or more
yards have been made on the two
The area of greatest scoring possi-
billity, says Kipke, is between the op-
ponents 40 and 20-yard lines. He
writes that here the defense is spread
and any play is permissable. All the
best trick and long-distance scoring
plays should be used.
The last zone described by Michi-
gan's head coach is that one between
the opponent's 20-yard line and the

shown such marked improvement in
physical condition over its prede-

announced today.I
"Complete data is not available1

ing from my own experience, these
freshmen are in the best physical
condition I have ever seen."
More "A" ratings were given this
