to study at the University of Leipzig,
from which he received his Ph.D. de-
gree in 1899. He returned to the Uni-
versity facultv the same year as an

Music Discussed By
Prof. Earl V. Moore
Prof. Earl V. Moore of the music
school addressed students of the liter-
ary college interested in music as an
avocation or a profession yesterday
in another of the vocational lecture
series.
He emphasized the necessity of
knowing applied music, the theory of
music, and its history to gain adequate
preparation for enjoying it fully as
either an avocation or a profession.
Professor Moore also fully outlined
the requirements for an A.B. degree
incorporating courses from the music
school, the combined curriculum of
the literary college and the music'
school, and the combined curriculum
of the music school and the educa-
tion school. The latter combination
was devised late last fall.
The improvement in radio reception
in the last few years, according to
Professor Moore, is due to the fact
that the electrical engineers admin-
istering broadcasting tone controls

Faculty Man Dies

PROF. TOBIAS DIEKHOFF
Specialists To
Meet Here For
Lecture Series
Eye, Ear, Nose, Throat
Men Convene This Week
In Postgraduate School
Forty-two of the outstanding eye,
ear, nose, and throat doctors in this
section of the country are here this
week attending a series of the Medical
School's postgraduate lectures, Dr.
James D. Bruce, vice-president of the
University and director of postgrad-
uate medicine, announced yesterday.
The doctors, who arrived here Mon-
day from various parts of Michigan,
other surrounding states, and On-
tario, are all outstanding specialists
in the eye, ear, nose, and throat field,
according to Dr. Bruce. They will be
here until Saturday.
The first three days of the week are
being devoted to lectures in the Uni-
versity hospital and clinics in the
Medical Building anatomy laboratory
on diseases of the ear, nose, and
throat. Beginning tomorrow, and
lasting until the end of the week, the
discussions will take up eye ailments.
While most of the doctors attend
both sections, the majority of them
attend the one dealing with eye treat-
ment, Dr. Bruce said.
These lectures and clinics are a con-
tinuation of the University's post-
graduate medicine program, he ex-
plained. This is the fifth year that
such discussions have been held.
This year marks the maximum at-
tendance, Dr. Bruce stated. The at-
tendance has been growing ever since
the postgraduate work started, he
pointed out, and declared that "this
year, we are filled to capacity.
"In fact," he continued, "we were
over-subscribed and had to turn many
doctors away. Attendance was re-
fused to none from Michigan, who
got their application in within a rea-
sonable time, however."
Earlier in the month, the postgrad-
uate department sponsored a lecture
on heart diseases, and a course in mil-I
itary medicine for army physicians
was completed last week.

Varsity Nine
Routs Purple
By 104 Win
Patchin Allows Eight Hits,
Strikes Out 12; Heyliger
Stars For Varsity
Pederson's Hitting
Aids Northwestern
Opponents' Lax Fielding
Benefits Wolverines; Six
Runs Unearned
By KENNETH PARKER
Michigan won its second Confer-
ence baseball game in three starts by
routing an erratic Northwestern club
in a loose contest yesterday at Ferry
Field, 10 to 4.
Art Patchin worked the entire nine
innings for the Wolverines, allowed
four runs, eight hits, and struck out
twelve. Had it not been for Al Ped-
erson, Wildcat slugger who took his
responsibility as cleanuphitterse-
riously, Patchin would have gotten
by with a shut-out, five-hit victory..
As it was, Pederson figured in the
scoring of all of Northwestern's runs,
with two triples and a home run to
his credit.
Gets Second Triple
In the second inning Pederson led
off for Northwestern with a triple
and stood on third while Arnquist
and Shanahan struck out. Pender-
grast then hit into right center. Rud-
ness came in fast for the ball, got un-
der it with a diving lunge, but dropped
it, Pederson scoring.
Pederson led off in the fourth and
duplicated his second inning per-
formance by blasting out another
triple into the same right field corner.
Shanahan's single scored him. To top
the day off, Pederson hit a home run
to the edge of the tennis courts in
right field in the eighth inning with
one man on.
Michigan's ten runs were made
with the aid of eight Northwestern
errors, four of which were made byl
Merrell, the shortstop. As a result six
of the Wolverine runs were unearned,
all but one of the errors proving costly
to the Purple.
Scores Five Runs
With Tom Woods, a southpaw,
starting on the mound for the Wild-
cats, Coach Ray Fisher jerked Joe
Lerner, a left-handed batter, and gave
Vic Heyliger, a right-handed hitter,
his first chance in a Conference game.
The change was justified. Heyliger,
playing right field, slapped out two
clean singles and a listy double in
four trips to the platter to lead his
mates in the attack. It was Heyliger's
double down the left field line which
sent Woods to the showers in the
sixth inning uprising when Michigan
combined five hits with a Northwest-
ern error to score five times.
The big sixth saw the Michigan bat-
ting order batting around. Teitel-
baum opened with a single into left.
Heyliger doubled, sending Teitelbaum
to third. That was enough for Woods,
and he was relieved by Ray Kimbell,

Mllan In Pa jutmas Is
Source Of No End
Of Embarrassment
A whole fraternity $hivered its very
timbers with fear Safurday as a re-
sult of a trick that it pulled on one
of its members and Which proved to
be a boomerang.
For a lark, the memnbers took one
of the fraters downton Friday night
night clothed only in a pair of pa-
jamas. They went to bed and thought
nothing more of the matter, but
when morning came, they found that
they were one member short, the
one that they had taken downtown.
The telephone rant. "This is the
Dean's office," a voice said. "Do you
have a member in your house who
might have been parading along the
diagonal last night wearing, only a
pair of pajamas? Well, he was
picked up by the police for indecent
exposure and spent the night in jail.
By the way, I want some of the mem-
bers of your fraternity to come to'
my office this afternoon."
After a morning of agony, the miss-E
ing member strolled in, not a bit;
non-plussed. When asked about the
jail and the indecent exposure, he
pretended innocence, but it all came
out that he had slept the night out at
a friend's house and in the morning
faked the call from the Dean's office.
Fratricide almost happened.
Cancel Senate
Discussion Of
Anti-Red Bills'
Sen. Dunckel Says Friends
Of Measure Unable To
Appear ToSpeak
LANSING, April 23 - (P) - Labor
lost its fight today for the hearing in)
the Senate on the anti-communism
legislation.
Sen. Miller Dunckel, Republican,
Three Rivers, co-sponsor of two meas-
ures directed at communistic activi-
ties, cancelled a hearing on the bills
which had been set tentatively for
tomorrow. Senator Dunckel said
friends of the measure had insuffi-
cient time to appear at the hearing
and speak in their behalf. They in-
cluded former Gov. Wilbur M. Bruck-
er.
Dunckel told labor delegates last
night that he would not consent to a
hearing that was "one sided."
While Dunckel was cancelling the
hearing, the Democratic minority
served notice it would oppose one of
the measures. After a caucus the
Democrats said they would vte
against the proposal intended to keep
the Communistic party off the ballot.
Minority leader Case assailed the
bill as "un-American" and "unconsti-
tutional." He said the Democrats
would vote against the bill as a unit.
Insurgents Weaken
Reform Measures
LANSING, April 23.- (A)-- The
administration program of govern-
mental reform moved closer to eclipse
today when Republican insurgents in
the House wrecked one of its major
measures.
Seven Republican members joined
the Democrats to accept amendments
to a bill proposing to abolish the ad-
ministrative board and set up a new
department of budgeting and finance.
The changes were recommended by
the Democratic-controlled state af-
fairs committee. They stripped from
the governor all control over fiscal
affairs and the proposed department

of finance. Rep. George C. Watson,
administration floor leader, attempted
to stave off the adverse report. The
House insisted on accepting it, by a
vote of 51 to 47.
As the measure will reach the floor
for open debate, probably Wednesday,
it is entirely unacceptable to Governor
Fitzgerald. He indicated he would
veto it in its present form.
Gov. Fitzgerald Opposes
School Relief Proposal
LANSING, April 23. - (R) - The
school relief issue, thought to have
neared a settlement in the Senate
Monday, met with a double setback
today.
Governor Fitzgerald announced vig-
orous opposition to a proposal that
$21,000,000 be appropriated directly to
the schools and that .8 of a mill prop-
erty tax be collected locally for the
same purpose. The governor said he
would veto the latter phase of the
proposed program.
At the same time Chairman Andrew
L. Moore, of the Senate taxation com-

Rushing Plan
Again Beaten
By Sororities
Panhellenic Association
Votes Down Deferred
Rushing Proposal
Delegates Approve
Registration Plan'
Freshman Women To Vote
On Period They Wish
To Be Rushed
In a 15 to 4 vote the proposal favor-
ing deferred rushing was defeated by
sororities yesterday in a meeting of
Panhellenic Association. The sug-
gested amendment to the present
system favored deferring of the inten-
sive rushing period two weeks in the
fall.
A laconic discussion preceded the
second defeat of the measure this
year.
At the same time sorority delegates
approved the adoption of a 'rushing
registration system. According to this
plan, freshman women will indicate on
special ballots during Orientation
week whether they wish to be rushed
during the formal period, after the
formal period, during the second sem-
ester, or not at all.
This plan, it is hoped, will eliminate
the rushing of women not interested
in pledging.
Sue Thomas, '36, chairman of the
committee on the revision of rushing
rules, presented a number of amend-
ments to the standing measures.
These revisions will be voted upon
by women in chapter meetings, and
will be passed finally by the Pan-
hellenic Association on May 7.
The proposed modifications include
a ban on any communication with a
rushee by alumnae of a house, or by
relatives of sorority women. Under
this amendment, nohrushee may be
called for or taken home by anyone
connected with a sorority.y y
The suggested revisions also reduce
rushing limits by one party. Thus, on
the second Saturday of the intensve
period, a sorority may have a choice
of two parties, but not three.
Forestry Men To
Attend Convention
Dean S. T. Dana and Prof. W. F.
Ramsdell of the School of Forestry
and Conservation left last night to
attend the Tri-State Forestry Confer-
ence held this week at Madison, Wis-
consin. They were appointed by Gov-
ernor Fitzgerald as two of the six
delegates to represent this state.
The Conference will include dele-
gates from Michigan, Wisconsin, and
Minnesota, and will consider emer-
gency and long-time forestry plans
for both the Federal and state govern-
ments. The Conference was called by
the governors of the states repre-
sented.

Committee Of The Whole
Passes Measure; Moves
To Final Vote
LANSING, April 23. - P) - Im-
portant issues, headed by a proposed
mill tax appropriation for the Univer-
city of Michigan and Michigan State
College, advanced in the Senate to-
day.
The membership approved in com-
mittee of the whole, bills "measuring"
the University's appropriation on the
basis of a .73 mill tax and that of
Michigan State College at the rate of
2.3 mills. There was no debate as
the bills went to a position for a final
vote.
Under the bills the University would
receive $4,062,335 a year and Mich-
igan State College $1,352,267. Specific
appropriations measures pending in
the House proposed $3,200,000 for the
University and $1,200,000 for Mich-
igan State College, including allot-
ments from sales tax revenues.
Friends of the measure claim they
are intended to serve only as a "yard-
stick" for specific appropriations.
Others hold that the institution would
be entitled to the full amount of their
millage if the measures are enacted
even though specific appropriations
may be left.
The Senate also approved in com-
mittee of the whole the Flynn Bill to
except certain agricultural and man-
ufacturing products from the three
per cent sales tax. The measure is a
part of a controversy that has extend-
ed over a two-year period.
Amendments were inserted to give
the Sales Tax Board broad powers to
grant exceptions for agricultural and
industrial goods used in the processing
or production of other products.

Play Production Changes
Plans For Concluding
Play Of Season
G. Martinez Sierra's "Kingdom of4
God" has been substituted for "Alien
Corn" by Sidney Howard, as the final
offering of Play Production this]
spring, Valentine B. Windt, director,f
announced yesterday.
Sierra's .play will be presented May1
8, 9, 10, and 11 at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theater and orders for tickets
will be accepted at the box office of'
the Laboratory Theater immediately,
Mr. Windt stated.
The change was made because the
"Kingdom of God" is rich in parts
and will serve as a fitting farewell
vehicle for the many talented Play
Production actors who will graduatej
in June, according to the director.
The English translation of the play
was written by Harley Granville
Barker and it is the realistic treat-
ment of the life of a sister of charity
who faces three great crises in her
life, the first at the age of 19, the sec-
ond at 29, and the third at 70. Ethel
Barrymore made this role famous,
opening the Shubert's Ethel Barry-
more Theater in New York in it.
The play is treated in a human and
unsentimental manner, Wr. Windt
said, and because Sierra's wife helped
him in the writing of it, the play has
great understanding of women. Also
the understanding of religious life
in the play is full of unexpected
drama and intense living.
The first act takes place in a home
for old men, the second in a maternity
ward for wayward girls, and the last
act takes place in an orphanage.
The box office at the Lydia Mend-
elssohn Theater will open May 6 and
tickets will be priced at 35, 50 and 75
cents.

Man Dead As Tree

An unusual accident yesterday re-

he was crushed and killed beneath
a falling tree in a wood near Saline.
Sikorski was working in the woods
on the Sherman Cook farm with a

accident, according to the report given
to local officials. No definite informa-

Taking their text from the three
well-polished apples which they pre-
sented to the judge, Prof. Robert D.
Brackett, members of Adelphi House
of Representatives, stated in their
debate withAthena, women's speech
society, last night that intelligence is
to charm as worms are to apples and
sand to spinach.
The two groups met in their annual
humorous forensic battle on the ques-
tion, "Resolved, The the Charm of
Woman is Inversely Proportioned to
Her Intelligence," with the women's
team endeavoring to refute the well-
known adage that a charming woman

bers pointed out that carrying the

Not only was leprosy current then

lished a leper house, cared for by the
church, where lepers might live in
