WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 - VP) -
Donald R. Richberg was disclosed to-
day to be in disagreement with offi-
cials of NRA's administrative board.
This development followed persist-
ent reports that there was sharp di-
vergence of opinion among members
of the board itself.
Richberg, head of the national
emergency council and also of the
group named to draft NRA policy,
said at the White House it was "an
unfortunate impression" that the
automobile code was to be renewed
automatically on Feb. 1.
Members of the board said they

Williams, board chairman. He said
that NRA should be continued on a
temporary basis, substantially with-
out change. Other members of the
board, questioned as to whether this
speech represented the board, said no
Members of the board interpret the
differences as the natural outgrowth
of healthy argument among men of
strong opinion.
Richberg said the automobile code
would be carefully studied before a
decision was reached on its renewal.
He said the automobile employers
had shown an interest in the regu-
larization of employment "but the
main question is the speed with which
it is to be run." -
Congress Will

WASHINGTON, Jan. 19- ('J) -
Heading into their first week of real
rapid fire action, congressional lead-
ers today gave signs of a willingness
to speed up the bonus and prepare for
six days of hard work on social se-
curity legislation, war profits, a
$4,880,000,000 public works bill and
lesser odds and ends.
The 74th Cgress has been in ses-
sion since Jan. 3 without putting a
single piece of the new legislation on
the statute books, and signs were
that not even the coming week would
see enactment of many things of
major importance.
Advocates of the Patman $2,100,-

at a meeting to use every means pos-
sible to expedite that measure in
preference to the American Legion
bill. The former would pay the bill
by printing new money, the latter

Sunderland Named I
To Federal Group1
Prof. Edson R. Sunderland, of the
Law School, has been appointed, by
the Attorney General of the United
States, a member of the Advisory
Committee to pass upon rules of pro-
cedure for regulating the practice in
the federal courts in law actions.
Authority to make such rules was
conferred on the Supreme Court of
the United States by act of Congress,
last May, and a preliminary study is
now being carried on by the Depart-
ment of Justice; As the work prog-
resses the results will be brought be-I
fore the Advisory Committee from -
time to time for consideration and 1
criticism, before being submitted to
the Supreme Court.
Professor Sunderland was the ;
draftsman of the present Michigan'
rules of practice and of the new Il-
linois Civil Practice Act which be-
came operative on January 1, 1934.

Hilty Says Students Must
Take Steps To Establish
Own Regulatory Body
Five Plans Are Now
To Be Considered
All Proposals Provide For
Student Jurisdiction In
Some Measure
Added emphasis waa piacea on the
formation of a new men's student
government by the policy laid down
by the University and presented by-
President Alexander G. Ruthven at a
meeting of fraternity presidents and
house members yesterday, accord-
ing to Carl Hilty, '35, president of the
Undergraduate Council.
With the University definitely on
record as opposing the general lax
condition of finances, scholarship, and
social standards in fraternity houses
but having set up no body to regulate
this condition, it will be up to the
students, themselves, to act through
their governmental organization, HiL-
ty stated.
One Or Other Must Act
"Because of this condition," Hilty
said, "if the students do not take
steps to establish their own regu-
I latory body and their own standard
of behavior, itwould seem reasonable
to believ that the University will
undertak to do this for them."
It is now up to the students to
decide just what form of govern-
ment they wish to adqpt, how much
jurisdiction they wish it to have, and
in what ways they wish it to meet the
University policies and their own
problems in this field, he said.
Five Plans Presented
Five plans for a new form of men's
student government have" been pre-
sented to the Undergraduate Council
for consideration and, for the pur-
pose of carrying out the survey of
student opinion upon this subject,
have been submitted to the student
body during the past two weeks.
All of these plans contain in vary-
ing degree some provision for stu-
dent jurisdiction in the fields of schol-
arship and social conduct, and, Hilty
declared, it is important that stu-
dents should express their opinions
and criticism in this regard.
During the past few years the Uni-
versity has been subjected to the
criticism that its attitude was too
paternalistic and, consequently, it has
tried to avoid too much interference,
but due to the conditions now pre-

Steve Farrell
Trophy TO Be
Put On Display
Award Given To Winner
Of Big Ten Dash Event
Is Completed
The Steve Farrell Memorial Award,
the trophy to be given to the winner
of the Big Ten hundred yard dash,
will go on display in the Union lobby
this morning, Carleton W. Angell
University sculptor who just complet-
ed designing it, announced yesterday.
Commemorating the name of Ste-
phen J. Farrell, Michigan's beloved
track coach for many years who died
last fall, the trophy is to be given to
the winner of the dash each year. The
present claimant of it is William H.!
Russell .of the University of Illinois1
who captured the event last year in
10 seconds.
The trophy, done in bronze, consists
of a statue of "Steve," standing on a
pedestal. On each side of the pedes-
tal is an image depicting the hun-

dred yard dash -a runner tying his
shoes, getting set for the gup, running,
and breaking the tape. Below this is a
space for the name of the winner and
his school, and an inscription giving
the history of the trophy.
Mr. Angell, who is a nationally
noted artist and sculptor, first began
work on the trophy some three months
ago. A model of clay was first made,
then a plaster mould, and finally the
bronze cast.
The trophy will remain in the Union
lobby near the bulletin board for near-

President Ruthven Threatens To
Close Fraternity Houses Unless
Conditions Are Soon Bettered

In Aggressive


Not included in the list of colleges
asked to register their opinions in
the poll on war being conducted by
the Association of College Editors in
conjunction with the Literary Digest,
students of the Northport Freshman
College nevertheless submitted the
questionnaire to themselves with the
folowing results:
Ten students thought that the
United States could stay out of an-
other great war, while five students
thought not. If the borders of the
United States were invaded, 15 stu-
dents would bear arms in defense of
their country, 2 would not; if the
United States should invade the bor-
ders of another country, one would
bear arms, 16 would not. .
Ten students favored a policy of
"an American navy and air force
setond to none" as a sound method
of insuring us against being drawn
into another great war; seven stu-
dents disagreed.

President Ruthven's Statement
The University has adopted fraternity standards of conduct in
three fields.
The chapters are expected to conduct their financial operations
in a business-like way; the organizations must give serious attention
to their scholastic standing; and they must live up to the standards
of social conduct set up by the University Committee on Student
The University insists that the fraternities have the responsibility
of adopting measures which will insure that a satisfactory standing is
maintained at all times. When it is satisfied that the fraternities are as-
suming a proper amount of responsibility the University will attempt
, to assist the chapters. When it is convinced that responsibility is being
avoided and conditions are unsatisfactory the houses will promptly be

Chapter Presidents Order
Immediate Cleanup After
Receiving Ultimatum
350 Attend Meeting
At Union Yesterday
Not Satsified With Social
Conduct, Scholarship,
And Finances
Fraternity presidents last night
ordered an immediate and thorough
"cleanup" in their houses as a direct
result of an ultimatum by President
Alexander G. Ruthven that fratern-
ities would be closed promptly un-
less conditions in the houses took an
"about face" immediately.
President Ruthven delivered this
statement at a closed meeting of 350
fraternity presidents, house man-
a g e r s, University administrators,
alumni officers of the University, and
faculty advisers, held yesterday in
the Union.
It was the first time since his ap-
pointment to the presidency AIve
years ago that President Ruthven
addressed a large group on such a
University Not Satisfied
"We are not satisfied with the way
in which some fraternities are meas-
uring up to the adopted standards of
the University in regards to social
conduct, scholarship, and finances,"
he told the group. He further stated
that when houses fail to accept their
responsibilities and conditions are
found to be unsatisfactory, the Uni
versity will ask national organiza-
tions to withdraw their local chap-
ter's charter.
House presidents evidenced their
belief that the President meant 'busi-
ness" and would stand back of his
statements with promt action, by
ordering all members not to bring
women into the houses unless they
were properly chaperoned and to
keep all intoxicating liquor off the
The President indicated in his
message that if fraternity men
showed an interest in correcting the
prevelant evils in these three fields,
the University would make every ef-
fort to assist them.
Three Alternatives Suggested
He suggested three alternatives by
which the fraternities could attack
the problems involved. They were:
(1) Ask the University to approve
faculty advisers appointed by the
fraternities, who would be held di.
rectly responsible for the conduct of
an individual house, (2) form house
committees to study and correct the
problem in cooperation with the Uni-
versity, or (3) appoint responsible
fraternity proctors. He wished it un-
derstood that these- plans were of-
fered only as suggestions and that
any other plans for the solution of
the problem would be appreciated. ,
Joseph A. Bursley, dean of stu-
dents, explained a series of charts
showing the comparative scholastic
ratings of representative fraternity
and independent men over a period
of 10 years.
Briggs Makes Explanation
Robert P. Briggs of the economics
department, chairman of the com-
mittee on exceptions to Rule 2 of the
Financial Standards and Regulations
passed last fall, explained the pur-
pose and method of operation of the
rulings tot the fraternity leaders.
"All we are asking fraternities to
do is to submit to us the necessary
data so that you can run your houses
as you would a business establish-
ment. In other words we are trying
to help you help yourself," Mr. Briggs
The three principal purposes of the
financial rules, as outlined by Mr.

Briggs, were (1) to leave a history
of the financial conduct of current
members so that future members
could not charge them with leaving
the fraternity with debts, (2) so you
will know how your chapter is oper-
ating at the present time, and (3)
to raise the financial standards. of
houses who are below average .rather
than to pull good houses down.
