520 'Men, 447 Women
Sign; Fraternities May
Check Illegal Rushing
With nearly 1,000 men and women
registered at Interfraternity and Pan-
hellenic rushing bureaus, Michigan's
70 fraternities and sororities settled
down to their fourth day of rushing'
activities which will close at 8:30
Thursday evening, Oct. 10.
Because the total men's registra-
tion late yesterday afternoon was 160
less than the final aggregate of the
1934 season, George R. Williams, '36,
expressed the belief . that many
rushees have not registered at the
Interfraternity Council's Union of-
fices. He stated that 520 men had
paid their fees during the current
rushing period, in contrast to the 680
who registered last year.
Must Pay Before Pledging
Fraternities should inquire if their
rushees had registered, Williams an-
nounced. He also urged the organi-
zations to recommend immediate
registration to the rushees. Under
the 1935-36 men's rushing rules no
freshman may be formally pledged
to a fraternity until he has registered.
A fee of 50 cents was charged for
registration prior to Saturday noon,
September 28, but this amount was
immediately raised to $1 with the
commencement of the rushing season.
To be pledged during the first
semester of the 1935-36 school year a
rushee must register with the Council
before the silence period begins at
8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10. Wil-
liams pointed out that men who
have been on the campus for more
than one semester need not pay the
rushing fee to be pledged formally.
However, transfer students will be in
the same category as incoming fresh-
men, Williams added.
700 Being Rushed
Basing their estimates on the in-
creased enrollment and the number of
men scheduled to be rushed, officials
of the Interfraternity Council set
700 as the number of men who are
now being rushed here. The office of
the Council in Room 306 of the Union
will be open daily from 2 to 5 p.m.
Because registration for women was
inaugurated for the first time during
the 1935 season, there is no accurate
method of comparing present totals
with those of any other years, Jane
Arnold, '36, president of the Panhel-
lenic Association stated yesterday.
.The latest registration figures show
that 477 women availed themselves
of the new feature. According to Miss
Arnold, Panhellenic registration exists
merely as a convenience to the soror-
ities and no fees are exacted.
Women's Schedule Announced
The women's rushing period was
opened with teas on Saturday and
Sunday afternoon. A regular sched-
ule will prevail for the remainder of
the week. Under the new Panhellenic
rules sorority houses are allowed to
pick two meals for rushing out of a
breakfast, lunch and dinner list for
Saturday, Oct. 5. Formal dinners will
be held Wednesday and Thursday
evenings, closing the rushing season.
There will be no engagements for
dinner or tea for Sunday, Oct. 6,
Miss Arnold stated.
No Formal Charges Made
Although no formal charges of in-
fraction of rules by houses or rushees
have been made to the Interfraternity
Council or the Panhellenic Associa-
tion, intimations of illegal rushing
during Orientation Week have been
heard by the Council. Williams an-
nounced that the files, which are
available to fraternity representa-
tives, would be checked to ascertain
if any cards have been removed. Sev-
eral rushing chairmen have offered

the opinion that certain cards have
been mislaid or removed from the
files.

Frederick Jordan, 1312 Washtenaw
Avenue, both Michigan alumni, began
the 46th consecutive year that they
have been subscribers.
The Jordans have been constant
Daily readers since it first began pub-
lication in 1889, even having it sent
to them in Italy and England during
six years spent intermittently abroad
between 1922 and 1932.
Mr. Jordan, who was graduated
from the University in 1879, served as

Cubs Favored
In Pitching In
World Series
Victorious Chicagoans Are
One Of Youngest Teams
To Win League Pennant
CHICAGO, Sept. 30.- (IP) -The
21-in-a-row Chicago Cubs, one of the
youngest pennant-winning teams in
baseball history with an average age
of but 26 years, haven't a pitcher
who ever won a World Series game,
but they figure to hold an edge over
Mickey Cochrane's moundsmen.
Up until Sept. 4, before the Cub
hurlers touched off the great win-
ning streak that won the flag, the
Tiger pitchers, who then had eased
up on their superb rush, stacked
up es. the better mound staff. -But
the comparative finishes to the wire
have seen great contrasts.
The work of Charlie Grimm's
pitchers in the 21-game winning
streak has been so sensational that
his starting hurlers were able to go
the full route in 18 out of 21 engage-
ments. Over the spectacular streak
only 24 pitchers were employed, hold-
ing the opposition to 48 runs, an
average of 2.28 runs a contest. With
a staff as "hot" as that you can't
deny the Cub "Big Four," Lon War-
neke, Charlie Root, Bill Lee and
Larry French, a margin over the Tiger
"Big Four," Schoolboy Rowe, Elden
Auker, Tom Bridges and Alvin Crow-
der.

Board Of Regents Accepts
Campbell's Resignation;
$1,000 ForFellowship
An added gift of $4,000 from
Charles Baird, '95L, of Kansas City,
for the purchase of an additional bell
for the carillon which he recently
gave the University, was accepted by
the Board of Regents in its first meet-
ing of the current semester.
Mr. Baird, first athletic director of
the University, who brought Field-
ing H. Yost here, gave $50,000 for the
construction of a carillon. It was
planned originally to put the bells,
which would have ranked fourth in
the world in size, in the tower of the
Union, but a special tower will be
erected for them either near or on
the campus. The new addition to the
carillon will make it equal to the
third largest, located at Mountain
Lake, Fla.
The Regents also announced the
establishment of an engineering
corps in the department of military
science and tactics. The War De-
partment some years ago asked for
the addition because most of the
R.O.T.C. members are registered in
the engineering college. Maj. Tatt-
nall D. Simpkins will be in charge
of the department.
The resignation of Prof. Oscar J.
Campbell of the English department
was accepted by the Board, and the
appointment of Ernest A. Philippson
to the German department was an-
nounced. Prof. Campbell will leave
at the end of this semester for Colum-
bia University.
A gift of $1,000 from the Timken'
Roller Bearing Co., Canton, O., was
givei to the University for a grad-
uate fellowship for the study of flu-
ids in Diesel engines.
The Regents also appointed Prof.
Frederick A. Coller, Prof. Carl V.
Weller and Prof. Charles W. Ed-
munds to the executive board of the
Medical School.
The executive committee of the
summer session for the academic
year 1935-36 will consist of Louis A.
Hopkins, director; Dean Edward
Kraus of the literary college; Dean
Herbert C. Sadler of the engineering
college; Dean Henry Bates of the
Law School; Dean W. B. Edmundson
of the education school and Dean
Clarence S. Yoakum of the graduate
school.

Five issues of major importance
will be discussed by the executive
committee of the Men's Council in
the first meeting of 1935-36 school
year to be held soon. As outlined by
William R. Dixon, '36, the work of
the committee will be based on these
problems:
1. Determining a date for Home-

5. Determining the date for a
meeting of freshmen this week.
The actions taken by the executive
committee will be set up for formal
voting when the entire Men's Coun-
cil will convene sometime within the
next two weeks, Dixon stated.
Dixon has called a meeting of
sophomores to ascertain their reac-
tions towards enforcing traditions.
The meeting will be held at 4:15 p.m.
today in Room 302 of the Michigan
Union. Dixon and John McCarthy,
'36, secretary of the Union, will pre-
side.
In addition to Dixon and Mc-
Carthy, the following students com-
pose the executive committee; John
W. Strayer, '36, Nelson R. Droulard,
'36E, and Charles Markham, '36 BAd.

Impressions of quiet streets, lovely
homes, and a people rich in good liv-
ing will remain as the dominant
memory of the visit through Norway
and Sweden this summer by Dean
Henry M. Bates of the Law School.
"A spirit of tranquillity, deepening
and enriching the lives of the people
of these Scandinavian countries pre-
sents a sharp contrast to the almost
violently aggressive spirit of our own
country," commented Dean Bates,
who with Mrs. Bates spent the sum-
mer in touring parts of Great Britain,
Norway and Sweden.
Conversing at times with people
who form "the backbone of the na-
tion" as well as with those who guide
its destinies, Dean Bates observed,
particularly in Sweden, a tendency
toward a more smooth settlement of
differences of political opinion where
in this country arguments are tinged
with bitterness and personal hatred.
To the long tradition of a single race
in a single place the Dean ascribed
this condition, as well as to the homo-
geniety of the people, whereas we,
he pointed out, are blessed with col-
orful blends.
"Sweden is of course largely Social
Democrat: a doctrine that is mildly
Socialistic and yet far from Com-
munism. It believes largely in the

governmental regulation of indus-
tries of primary public importance,
much as we control our utilities here.
"A higher regard for law and hon-
esty is immediately apparent among
the people of Norway and Sweden.
Graft in public office is comparatively
unknown. Since a law was passed
forbidding the use of horns on motor
vehicles except in an emergency, the
streets are quiet and pleasant. Po-
licemen in the public streets need do
nothing but direct traffic - although
strangely enough, in accordance with
an old custom policemen in the
streets of Stockholm are equipped
with swords!
"In Norway as well as Sweden,
shops are characterized by a dignity
that is absent in even our better
shops in this country," Dean Bates
observed. "There are no gaudy store
fronts, blatant advertisements, or
any of the signs of the wasteful in-
ternecine struggle that are apparent
everywhere here.
"Unfortunately," Dean Bates re-
gretfully observed, "there is one thing
sorely remiss in Scandinavian coun-
tries -the food. The absence of
fresh fruits, and the eternal presence
of fish of all kinds and preserved
foods revived more quickly than
would be expected our desire to see
our own country."

Warneke,
southpaw,

French, will carry the pitching load
for the Cubs in the series against a
quartet of Tiger right-handers --
Rowe, Auker, Bridges and Crowder.
Both teams are well equipped with
pitching reserves and probably will
center the relief jobs on Southpaw
Roy Henshaw, Cubs, and Roxie Law-
son, the rookie who pitched shut-
outs in his first two American League
games this season.
Pitchers Compared
Comparing them:
Warneke and Auker: Warneke, a
cool workman with a lightning fast
ball, is the chief reliance of the Cub
staff and a hard man to beat. Auker,
one of the big surprises of the season
with his comeback, delivers a tricky
underhand ball that undoubtedly will
bother the Cubs, as there isn't a
pitcher like him in the National
League. Both had earned run aver-
ages of 3.51 in the season just closed.
Root and Bridges: Tommy may be
Cochrane's best bet. When he's right
with his great curve he's invincible.
Root, pitching the same ball that
made him famous years ago, may be
soup for Hank Greenberg's home run
bat, but he's a smart, fast ball pitcher.
Root's earned run average for the

LANSING, Sept. 30. - (P) -State
liquor control commissioners agreed
in informal meeting today that they
cannot enforce a ban on Sunday beer
drinking.
Attorney-general Harry S. Toy, in
an opinion written at 'the request of
Governor Fitzgerald, ruled that a
regulation preventing licensees from
selling beer on Sunday would be in
contradiction of the state liquor con-
trol act. Chairman John S. McDon-
ald and R. Glenn Dunn, legal ad-
visers to the governor, joined in Toy's
opinion.
Toy held that since the statute
specifically prohibited the sale of
spirits on Sunday and did not men-
tion beer, the sale of beer would be
permitted by a negative interpreta-
tion of the statute.
LANSING, Sept. 30.--(/P)-Eigh-
teen-year-old youths may continue
to buy beer legally in Michigan until
the Legislature changes the present
liquor control act, Attorney General
Harry S. Toy held Monday. The pro-
posed statewide Sunday closing of
taverns, gardens and other beer sell-
ing places also went into the discard.
Both proposals of the recent con-
ference of sheriffs, chiefs of police
and prosecuting'attorneys were held

The current exhibition at the Wil-
liam Clenients Library, named
"Mathematica Americana," was set
up particularly for the meeting of the
American Mathematical Society, the
American Institute of Statisticians
and the Mathematical Association of
America. Although this meeting has
adjourned, the exhibit is to be found
displayed in the lobby of the Clem-
ents Library.
Mathematics is the theme of the
display and the greatest amount of
space is devoted to charts and other
works relative to geography, naviga-
tion and weather prognostication.
The oldest publication on display is
an almanac of Regiomontanus pub-
lished in Venice in 1485. It is highly
probable that Columbus used an
edition of this book to predict the
total lunar eclipse whose consumma-
tion, according to the yarn, awed the
natives into subjection. Despite the
extreme age of the book the paper
and hand colored maps are in remark-
ably good condition.
Another book rich in tradition is
a cosmography by Waldseemuller
published in 1507. Written in Latin,
the value of this book is greatly en-
hanced by the one paragraph in which
the author fallaciously lauds Amer-
icus Vespucius for his discovery of

Of Hurricane
NEW YORK, Sept. 30. - (P) -
The 600 passengers on the Hol-
land-American liner Rotterdam,
which struck a reef and went
aground 60 miles south of Kings-
ton, Jamaica, were reported saved
tonight, and in no immediate
danger.
The Rotterdam was caught in
the wake of the hurricane which
has been raging over the Cari-
bbean, and was driven aground
on Morant Cays about 2 a.m.
Monday.
NEW YORK, Sept. 30.-- (P) -The
Holland-America liner Rotterdam,
carrying 600 passengers on a West
Indian cruise in the wake of a de-
structive hurricane, struck a reef and
went aground today 60 miles south-
east of Kingston, Jamaica.
"Everybody well and quiet; no
danger," said a wireless message to
the Associated Press from Capt. Van
Dulken, commander of the 21,000-ton
vessel.
In a previous message Capt. Van
Dulken asked all nearby ships to
stand by for possible assistance. He
reported the Rotterdam grounded on
Morant Cays in the Caribbean Sea
about 2 a.m.
The liner, which left New York
Sept. 21, had been plowing north-
ward from Venezuela behind the hur-
ricane which lashed Jamaica and
part of Cuba during the week-end.
Out Of Storm Path
Weather reports indicated she was
not directly in the storm's path when
she went aground .
F. R. Wierdsma, general manager
of the Holland-America Line, said
that besides her passengers the Rot-
terdam carried a crew of 350. He had
no information as to whether a gale,
had blown the ship aground, or
whether some mechanical trouble had
caused the accident.
Shipping men said that in case
Capt. Van Dulken should ask for
direct aid vessels could be sent most
easily from Kingston. It is the closest
port to Morant Cays.
Coast Guard officials kept in touch
with the ship, although the closest
Coast craft, the Unanga, was at San
Juan, Puerto Rico, about 500 miles
from the scene. The cays are owned
by Great Britain.

Killed In .Autok
Wreck Sunday
Car Of Dr. R. G. Dalby
Plunges Off Road Near
Northville
Dr. Robert G. Dalby, 29-year old,
member of the University Hospital
staff was killed instantly at 1:30 a.m.
Sunday when his car plunged off the
South Center Street road near North-
ville into a guard rail. '
His car, a Ford two-door sedan, was
being driven at the time by Miss,
Ellen Sutton, 25 years old, of North-
ville, who suffered a broken ankle
and head and jaw injuries. Miss Sut-
ton, a former nurse at St. Josephs
Hospital here, was returning to Plym-
outh where she is employed.
According to Miss Sutton, the car
had been stalling while shenwas driv-
ing up the steep Center Street hill
enroute to Plymouth. Dr. Dalby, she
told Daily reporters, advised her to
release the clutch "and step on the
gas." "As I let out the clutch," she
said, "he reached over and shoved
up on the accelerator lever. The
car, going south, shot across the
road, ripping into a guard rail on
the left hand side." Miss Sutton de-
nied that she lost control of the car.
The automobile plunged into a ra-
vine, a board from the guard rail
tearing through the motor and dash-
board of the car and killing Dr.
Dalby. .
Miss Sutton, according to relatives,
is an old friend of the Dalby family.
Dr. Dalby was graduated from
Mount Clemens high school where
he starred on the football team. He
entered the University in 1923, work-
ing his way through both literary
college and Medical School, from
which he was graduated in 1931.
Since that time he has served as an

The total enrollment in the Uni-
versity yesterday was 9,034 as com-
pared to 8,224 who were registered the
same time in the year 1934-35, fig-
ures released by Dr. Frank E. Rob-
bins, assistant to the president, show.
A gain of approximately 9.8 per
cent was shown for the recent semes-
ter.
The total number of men registered
is 6,622 while only 5,952 had enrolled
at this time last year. An increase
of 140 was shown by the number of
women enrolled for the current se-
mester, and the total enrollment for
women is 2,412.
Near 1934 Total
The final enrollment, to Sept. 28,
is three less than the number of stu-
dents registered at the close of the fall
semester last year. It was pointed
out that a gain of 810 students was
made after the three day classifica-
tion period at the opening of the
fall semester last year. However,
such a large increase is not expected
for this year due to the fact that reg-
istration did not take place until one
week later than last year.
Attendance in all the various col-
leges and professional schools, exclud-
ing the School of Nursing, the en-
rollment of which remained the
same, showed an increase. The
Graduate School enrollment jumped
from 773 for the year 1934-35 to 892
for the present semester, a gain of
15.4 per cent.
L. S. & A. Shows Increase
An increase of 292 students, repre-
senting an increase of 13.3 per cent,
was shown for the literary college,
and the total enrollment for the col-
lege is 4,441. In the engineering
school 1,499 are now enrolled as
compared to 1,323 who were registered
last year.
The greatest increase in the num-
ber registered for the professional
schools was shown by the Law School
with 45 more students being regis-
tered at the present time than for
the fall semester of 1934-35. There
is a 5.1 per cent increase in the en-
rollment of the Medical School, the
total registration being 430 as com-
pared with 409 for the fall semester
of 1934-35. The enrollments of the
Schools of Dentistry and Business
Administration showed an increase
of 6.6 per cent and 11.3 per cent
respectively,
The registration of the other col-
leges follows: Forestry and Conser-
vation, 93, a gain of 60.3 per cent;
Music, 180, an increase of 23 students
over the fall semester of last year;
School of Education, 249, a gain of
33 students; pharmacy college, 83,
showing a gain of 45.6 per cent; the
College of Architecture, 191, as com-
pared with an enrollment of 173 for
the fall semester of last year.
Murders Of Olsen,
Stang Not Linked
The possibility that the murder of
Patrolman Clifford Stang, which
electrified Ann Arbor last spring, was
committed by the same person who
shot and killed Frank Olsen, Detroit
mechanic, last Friday, was discount-
ed by policemen here-last night.
It was believed yesterday that
Stang's gun, which was taken from
him when he was killed, might have

been used to shoot Olsen. Detective
Eugene Gehringer was in Detroit yes-
terday and last night investigating,
but according to Sergt. Norman
Cook, chances were that his trip
would be in vain.
The identity of the Stang murder-
ers remains as much of a mystery as
ever. Killers of a Jackson fireman last
spring, who were believed at the time
to have been connected with the
Stang case, were recently apprehend-
