* ote Poicy Of
Conference Cloes Witl
Pledge Of Co-Ordinatio
With Administrators
Deny Trend Exists
Against Societies
New System At Yale Di
Not Kill Greek Houses
Delegates Are Told
NEW YORK, Dec. 1.-- (AP) - A pol
icy of complete co-operation with col.
lege administrators as a means o.
increasing the prestige of nationa
college fraternities was voted today
by delegates at the final session o:
the 26th Interfraternity Conference.
Delegates fromp 66 fraternities
united in declaring that only such a
policy would restore to the under-
graduate societies "prominent posi-
tions once held by them on Amer-
ican campuses."
Leroy E. Kimball, elected chair-
man of the conference for the ensuing
year, scored reports that colleges
have turned against fraternities.
"I know of no college president or
dean opposed "to theideal social fra-
ternity," he said.
"It will be-the aim of the new ad-
ministration to press forward with in-
telligent optimism and intelligent en-
terprise. We will get nowhere, though,
unless we work hand-in-hand with
the colleges," he said.
Contrary to the popular impres-
sion that the institution of the new
resident house plan at Yale had done
away with the widespread fraternity
system at New Haven, delegates were
told by Yale representatives that no
l appreciable :decrease in support of
the societies had been noticed.
Peter C. Hitt, Yale senior and mem-
ber of Beta Theta Pi, said there has
been a revival of fraternity interest
at his university. The effects of the
house unit plan at Yale, he said,
will be not to exclude the fraternity,
but to complement its activities.
Resolutions were adopted advocat-
ing frequent college and University
inspection of fraternity houses. to
avert unsafe and unsanitary condi-
tMons and recommendinga survey by
Members of the conference to deter-
mine whether college authorities
would co-operate in instituting resi-
dent adviserships, such as house
mothers, in chapter houses.

According to advance reports, Gold

an analysis of traditional American
literature and a discussion of the ris-

He will seek to establish his belief
that there has been a definite tend-

past to evade the sphere of the real
problems of life and to invade the
field of romance, imagination, and

his living when only 12 years old, and
was supporting his family in their

time he has worked, according to his
own statement, "on about 36 jobs en-
tailing manual labor, and on about 12
newspapers as a reporter and copy-
He also has had an active exist-
ence as a labor organizer, having
"been chased by the cops in about 40
street demonstrations and helped in
about 20 strikes."
Eastman's Assistant
Gold's journalistic career carried
him to the position of assistant to
Max Eastman, then editor of the lib-
eral magazine "Masses." In 1926, he
and a few friends, desirous of creat-
ing a better medium for reflecting
the cultural aspects of the proletrian
movement, reorganized the magazine
under the name of "New Masses,"
with Gold as editor-in-chief.
During his leadership "New Masses"
took its place as one of the nation's
leading leftist periodicals. He retired
from his position in ,1932, taking a
place on the editorial board, which
he still holds.

safely this morning, 11 hours after
the ship struck the Muskegon break-

Making their way to the break-

to the freighter by coast guardsmen,
the sailors fought their way over a

mile of the wave-washed breakwater
to shore.
All were exhausted and suffering
from exposure, some had to be as-
sisted to shore, apparently injured.

Edmonson's Var
Take Him Far
Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education, who is to be the
third faculty lecturer on the Univer-
sity Lecture Series, speaking Wednes-
day on "The Crisis in Public Educa-
tion," may well be called Michigan's
traveling educator.
Called to Washington many times
in the last five years, and member
of scores of educational societies
which convene annually in distant
parts of the nation, Dean Edmonson
has been characterized as a Pullman

Three-Mile Tunnel System Of

GRAND RAPIDS, Dec. 1.- () -
Michigan's basketball team emerged
victorious in a close battle with a
stubborn Calvin College quintet here
tonight, opening the 1934-35 season
of both teams. The. score was 25
to 22.
The Wolverines trailed with a score
of 17 to 8 at the half time, but staged
a whirlwind finish with Plummer
and Ford taking the lead in the scor-
ing efforts. It was not until the last
few minutes of play that Michigan
was able to clinch the results.
