Congratulations,
Fraternities .. .
'tHE INTERFRATE1RNITY COUNCIL
j started a movement last night to,
rid Hell Week of malpractices. They acted intel-
ligently and are to be congratulated.
There is a long road for them to travel yet, how-
ever, and we sincerely hope that their every move
in carrying out modification plans are accomplished
with the same evidence of the acceptance of re-
sponsibility that was shown last night.
The committee in charge of formulating a mod-
ification code must present to the general Council
a set of rules with "teeth" and yet not so strict
as to cause their refusal by the Council.
If the modification code is passed, and there is
no reason why it shouldn't be, the next question
whih will confront the Council is the even more
difficult problem of enforcing it. There will always
be - few houses who will ignore the regulations
just as they did the rushing rules.
The whole problem of modifying Hell Week is a
difficult one, but not for the group that met last
night. They were a different Interfraternity Coun-
cil. Perhaps the serious attitude they adopted was
prompted by their memory of President Ruthven's
now-famous "clean-up" speech, but whatever it
was, we like the new fraternity attitude.
Sunday Library
Service..
THE GENERAL LIBRARY has so far
this year remained closed on Sun-
day, and its study halls have been closed on Fri-
day and Saturday nights.
Lest year the reason given by the administration

for curtailing the activities of the library was a
r'educed appropriation. However, when a concen-
trated drive was made by various campus organi-
fations the administration held out the conces-
sion of keeping the main reading room of the
Library open Sunday afternoons, and refused stu-
dent contributions 'or the purpose.
In these depression days more and more courses
are making use of library books'and materials in a
laudable effort to save students the expense of
what they would formerly have had to buy.
Sunday is the one day in the week that is not
crowded with activities both academic and extra-
curricular and is one of the most opportune times
for study. If the Library cannot keep the stacks
open on Sunday they should at least open the main
reading room and some of the more important
study halls.
Closing the study balls Friday and Saturday

AN AUTOMOBILE travelling almost
80 miles an hour plunges off the
road on a slight curve. Four people killed, three
injured.
A speeding automobile loses control on slippery
pavement and hits a roadside tree. Two people
killed, three injured.
A car plunges through a blinding snowstorm at
night and hits a freight train at a grade crossing.
Two people killed.
Altogether there have been more automobile ac-
cidel:t fatalities in the past year than in any year
to date. The above examples, chosen from the
records of Washtenaw County, prove that while
the manufacturers are on their way to perfecting
their machine, the improvements in driving brains
have not been commensurate.
By far the majority of the fatal accidents have
occurred in circumstances where a driver involved
was traveling at a speed entirely out of proportion
with driving conditions at the time. The state speed
laws call only for safe driving, leaving the decision
to the discretion of the driver.
Into this safety enter three elements: the con-
dition of the car, the visibility and pavement, and
the driving ability and common sense of the man
at the wheel. Of these, the last is the most
important, as the others must be judged thereby.
Accordingly, it becomes increasingly evident that
the driver who is unable to differentiate between
legal and lethal speed must be educated or else
banned from the highway.

Movie Prices
To the Editor:
In the early part of this century the United
States passed a law prohibiting the action of
monopolies. The Butterfield concern of Michigan
has exercised a monopoly over the theatres on this
campus. Gentlemen, they set the prices - prices
higher than those on any other campus in this
country-and thus make it necessary that stu-
dents desiring recreation in the form of motion
pictures must pay prices far above their means.
It is about time that some action be taken to
force this concern to lower the admission prices of
their theaters to meet the financial level of the
student body.

LOST, STRAYED OR STOLEN! TWO FRESHMEN
ARMED WITH BEAN SHOOTERS!
It seems as though, the other night, when
the balloon advertising the coming Hillel
Players production "Unfinished Picture" was
severed from its ropes and traveled up into
the stratosphere, one of the fraternities or-
dered two freshmen to buy beanshooters and
find the balloon and shoot it down. Up to the
next morning no word had been heard from
the explorers. It is thought the $15 reward is
the motive behind their disappearance.
What do college students do with their time?
In answer to this none-too-important query, a
professor at Cornell College gives the following
data from a survey conducted by him recently:
1. Senior men spend 55 hours of each week
sleeping.
2. Co-eds devote 10 hours per week more than
men to personal appearance.
3. Senior men are the most studious of the
students,and they spend nine and one-half hours
per week at the dining table.
4. Freshmen write home on the average of two
and one-half hours per week.
5. Junior women consume 12 hours and 30 min-
utes each week for "entertainment."
A young man at Ohio State University was
lounging around Monday morning watching
his fraternity brothers dress for class, bragging
meanwhile about his smooth date the evening
before and using adjectives as long as the sec-
ond semester. A loud knock interrupted the
discourse.
"Are you Bill Jones?"
"Right."
"Did you spend last night with Betty
Smith?"
"Right."
"And did you kiss the girl goodnight?"
"You're darned right I did. So what?"
"Well sonny, get dressed and come right
along. I'm the dean, and I just dropped around
to tell you that Miss Smith has diphtheria
and is now resting quietly in the hospital."
Students will do many strange things merely
to obtain the indefinable thing called education.
A girl, a pre-med student at Kent State College,
is earning her living by operating her own shoe
repair shop. On the other hand a Butler University
freshman is digging graves in quest of money.
One of the boys at the University of Wiscon-
sin was hitch-hiking his way home the other
week-end and was picked up by a woman who
inquired what he was taking at the University.
"Pharmacy," replied the student.
"Dear me," she answered, "you do have to
know so much to farm on a large scale these
days, don't you?"

Enlightment
To the Editor:
An extremely interesting and important sidelight
of the Hillel Play to be presented soon has come
to my attention and I would greatly appreciate any
additional information on the matter from The
Daily or from readers of this column.
I have heard that the reason the play, called
the "Unfinished Picture," was originally banned
by the University authorities last November was
that Negroes were included in the cast. I also was
informed that the University has never before per-
mitted Negro actors to perform on the stage of the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater. Although, according
to this report, the Negroes have not been excluded
from the play, the University has apparently shift-
ed its ground and has consented that the play be
given in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater.
I have always been interested in dramatic work
among students. This play was written by a Mich-
igan student, four times a winner of Hopwood
prizes. If my information is correct, I can think
of no other more dampening and unfortunate
influence which the University could possibly exert
against constructive dramatic tendencies among
students than to censor their accomplishments on
such an unreasonable basis as race discrimination.
Censorship of this bigoted and unjustifiable type
is simply and flatly incompatible with intelligent
dramatic work. of course, assuming the above to be
true, the University is to be commended for having
shaken off the shackles of narrow-minded and out-
nioded prejudice, and this presentation will mark
an admirable forward step toward freedom and
justice.
I do not want to be understood as advancing
these charges about backward censorship against
the University, nor as commending the alleged
progressive move. I merely am proposing these
ideas as my reactions in case the report I heard
is true. The sole purpose of this letter is to arouse
a reply from some source more informed about
the matter than I am.
Watching this column for an early enlighten-
ment, I am, -Curious.
NOTE: We are informed that the play was
originally banned because one of the charac-
ters made arrangements to borrow money for
an abortion - which, of course, is illegal. This,
incidentally, was sufficient reason for banning
the play in New York. This incident had to be
changed before the play could be presented in
Ann Arbor. The question of race discrimina-
tion did not enter the matter. There is no
ban against Negroes performing in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theater.

By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, March 7
THE ONE THING administration stalwarts in
the Senate who stood fast against the Mc-
Carran amendment to pay prevailing wages on
work relief projects most feared was that the White
House might find it expedient to make a real com-
promise with the opposition. That greatly compli-
cated efforts of leaders to work out a deal. The
stalwarts felt that any real compromise would
leave them holding the bag. As they saw it, com-
promise would put a political premium on revolt
and make loyalty to the details of the administra-
tion's relief program a liability with the labor vote
when election day rolls around.
Some of the loyalists would say as much with
complete frankness off the record. They pointed
to good labor records built up through long serv-
ice in house or Senate. Whatever the ultimate
economic outcome of the work relief-prevailing
wage struggle, they said, it might result in their
being pilloried as anti-labor if the White House
knuckled down to the demands of the McCarran-
ites.
TO SUCH MEN a smilingly uttered phrase or
two by the President in unreported speeches
had special significance. They drew from his re-
marks the inference that he was in a fighting
mood not only about the McCarran amendment
but about other challenged aims of his program,
whether challenged in Congress or by the Federal
courts. That fine old remark by Paul Jones at a
seemingly hopeless point in a celebrated battle
that he had "just begun to fight," reiterated by
Mr. Roosevelt in circumstances that made it high-
ly significant, cheered them mightily.
But it added to the difficulties of administration
leadership in the Senate. How to find a formula
that would bridge the gap back to administration
regularity for some of the score of Democrats who
bolted on the McCarran amendment that would be
a political face-saver for the bolters and yet pro-
tect the regulars called for as delicate a bit of
political diplomacy as can well be imagined.
THE INCREASING tensity over New Deal legis-
lative proposals as Congress got so haltingly
into its stride impressed onlookers with another
point. That is the place Vice-President Garner
might have in the off-stage maneuvering to get
things going again. As usual, there was no visible
means of telling what he was doing to help smooth
