Action Taken I
By Council On
Rushing Rules
Plan To Alter Ruling On
Transifers; Approve Two
Special Requests
The Executive Committee of the In-
terfraternity Council proposed a
change in the rushing rules yester-,
day and also passed on two petitions
of students desiring to be pledged and
initiated in fraternities.
Herman Fishman, '38. who peti-
tioned for the right to pledge had his
request granted when the committeeI
found that his reasons for not regis-
tering with the Interfraternity Council
at the proper time were valid.-
Dwight Harshbarger, '37, a pledge,i
was given the right to be initiated.
The committee stated that they
wished to go on record as being in
favor of striking from the rushing
rules the clause which preventsupper
class transfers from being initiated at
any time before the second semester
They reasoned. that no matter whatE
grades a transfer had received from!
the school previously attended, he still
would enter this University with a
C average. Likewise, they believed that
a junior should be allowed to be init-
iated because of the short time he
has to make fraternal contacts.
The exact ruling in the rushing
rule states that "Any pledge not elig-
ible at the end of the first semester
for initiation into a fraternity under
the provisions of Article V, Section 2,
will be eligible when he has obtained
at least 26 hours of credit and an
equal or greater number of honor
points.
The proposal of changing the rush-
ing rules will be brought before ther
Interfraternity Council meeting as aj
whole, at their next session, for dis-I
cussion and action, according to Alvin
H. Schleifer, '35, secretary.
CORRECTION
In the report of Prof. Ferdinand N.
Menefee's speech to Sigma Rho Tau
on the New Deal, printed in yester-
day's Daily, Professor Menefee was
quoted as discussing the FERA in the
course of his speech.
Professor Menefee has advised The
Daily that he was misquoted in this
particular and also the statement that
"American liberty will be impaired
by 'Santa Claus' acts," and the refer-
ence to "flagrant and indiscriminate
spending."

Three persons were killed in-
stantly and four more seriously in-
jured in an automobile accident dis-
covered at 1:15 this morning four
miles north of Dexter on the Port-
age Lake Road.
All of the seven persons, four
women and three men, who were
involved in the crash were positive-
ly identified as internes and nurses
of the University Hospital.
The dead are:
VIOLET SWANSON, about 25 years
old, and a graduate of St. Luke's Hos-
pital of Chicago, who was believed
to be attached to the staff of the Uni-
versity Hospital. She was definitely
identified by Dr. Albert C. Kerlikow-
ske, resident physician, early this
morning at the Staffan Funeral Home
here.
DR. ROBERT B. MEYER, assist-
ant resident physician in dermatolo-
gy at the hospital. He was formerly
a resident of Oak Harbor, O.

The injured are:
GERTRUDE SHULER, a nurse at
the University Hospital, who was
"very seriously injured" and had not
regained consciousness at an early
hour this morning.
VIRGINIA COLLINS, nurse, who
regained consciousness after being ad-
mitted to the hospital.
THELMA BOLTINGHOUSE, nurse,
who had also regained consciousness.
DR. WILLIAM F. DEL, interne in
internal medicine at the University
Hospital.
The car, headed for Dexter and
presumably Ann Arbor, came over the
top of a slight rise at a terrific speed
and failed to negotiate an unmarked
turn careening across the highway
into a deep ditch and hitting a tree.
The automobile, a new five-pass-
enger Chevrolet sedan registered un-
der the Chevrolet Motor Co., Detroit,
was completely demolished. It was
found in an upright position and had
traveled approximately 50 feet from
the road.
The injured were brought from the
scene of the accident to the Univer-
sity Hospital by a passing motorist
and an ambulance. Miss Shuler, who
was one of the last to be taken to
the hospital for treatment, was the
most seriously injured. Medical au-
thorities expressed fear for her life
this morning.
The bodies of the two men who were
killed were removed to a Dexter fun-
eral parlor.

Hungarian Musician Will
Make Local Debut In 4th
Choral Union Concert
Josef Szigeti, prominent Hungarian
violinist, will come to Ann Arbor Dec.
3 to mAke his local debut, playing in
the fourth concert of the current
Choral Union season. The program
will be given in Hill Auditorium.
He was first heard in this country
in 1925 when Leopold Stokowski pre-
sented him to the American public
with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Unlike many artists, he has been
unwilling to make musical conces-
sions and does not indulge in so-called
"unworthy" music or spectacular
tricks with the violin. However, he
has attained a distinguished position
as an artist of flawless performance.
Szigeti has twice travelled around
the world, each trip being made in
one year. He has been officially hon-I
ored with such decorations as the!
French "Legion of Honor," the Hun-
garian "Ordre Pour Le Merite," and
the Japanese "Jiji Shimpo" gold
medal.
He was born in Budapest and early
studied unde' the great violinist, Hu-
bay. He was known as a child prodigy
and made his initial debut at the
Royal Academy when he was 13 years
old. Shortly, thereafter, he played in
Berlin and Dresden, and in a debut
concert at Queen's Hall, London,
where his success was so great that
he remained in England for several
years.

The programs of religion offered
to students by the Baptist, Episcopal,
Disciples, Methodist, Presbyterian,
and Lutheran Churches of Ann Arbor
are so similar that they may be pre-
sented as one program given in sev-

Worship is the central theme in the
programs at each church. The clergy-
men in the various churches are:
Rev. R. Edward Sayles, of the' Bap-
tist Church; Rev. Henry Lewis, of
the Enieonnal Church,- Rev Fredierick

Each church also sponsors a Stu-
