It was not, strictly speaking, a gift,

of pajamas from several weeks back.
Three bottles of beer, a live duck,
.nd "Uncle Joe's" pajamas were the
objects sought in the fraternity's
:cavenger party.
The pajamas were just as easy to
get as the beer, and easier to get than
the duck. Their possession merely
entailed asking "Uncle Joe."
Being an honest man who lends
kindly but expects payment, "Uncle
Joe" requested the return of his pa-
jamas from the fraternity. They were
lost, however, and so last night Delta

110 Degrees Given
lI Graduate School
One hundred and ten degrees were
conferred in the Graduate School
at the close of the first semester, ac-
cording to Assistant Dean Peter Ok-
kelberg. This was an increase of
nine over the previous year.
The largest increase was noted in
Master of Arts degrees where 42 were
given, an increase of 14 over February,
1935. Twenty-five Master of Science
degrees were conferred while only 17
were given out the year before.
Contrasted with the 34 Doctor of
Philosophy degrees awarded in 1935,
only 26 were conferred this year.
While only one Master of Landscape

This is the third appearance of the

song recital he has given before a
local audience
As a young man, Mr. Thomas won
great popular favor in light opera,
singing in "Maytime," "Apple Blos-
soms," "Alone At Last," and others.
After attaining this success he went
to Europe for further study, and
began his grand opera career at the
Royal Opera House in Brussels, where
he became known as "the American
singing ambassador to Belgium."
For his first group of selections for
Monday night's concert, Mr. Thomas
has chosen, "To Lo Sai" by Torelli,
"Alma del Core" by Caldara, "Schwes-

300 Are Present At First
Session To Confer On
Political Situation
More than 300 persons jammed the
Union ballroom last night to see the
Student Senat off to a flying start,
Farmer-Laborites and Democrats in
the saddle.
Although the Senate refused to go
on record as to its opinions on the
question, "Should the Student Back
the old Parties in the 1936 Cam-
paign?" articulate opinions indicated
that a vote would have been a close
one - the "nos" favoring the Farm-
er-Laborites and the "yeses" sticking
with the New Deal. In addition to
John B. Martin, Jr., '36, G.O.P.
speaker, but three persons declared
themselves Republicans and but two,a
besides Prof. Harold McFarlan of
the engineering college, Socialist
speaker, went on record as favoring
that belief.
Mrs. James McDonald of Ypsilanti,
vice-chairman of the State Demo-
cratic Central Committee, sounded
the keynote for her party, and de-
spite the fact that one Democratic
student charged her remarks "had
more spleen than direction," the ma-
jority of non-Socialist and non-Com-
munist students present, at least
those who made their remarks from
the floor, appeared to agree with her.
Luskin Gets Support
It was probably Leo Luskin, '36,
Communist speaker, however, who at-
tracted most of the articulate support.
Sounding the pitch of the new Ameri-
can Communist doctrine, that of a
Farmer-Labor party for the 1936 elec-
tion, he was supported by three ofe
the four speakers.
Each speaker was allowed exactly
three minutes, and at the end of thatr
time, the firm gavel of John C. Mc-
Carthy, '36, recording secretary of
the Union, chairman of the Senate,
came down with a bang.
Opening for the Republicans, Mar-
tin based his views on the contention
that no third party can succeed and 1
that the "better planks" of the So-
cialists and Communists sooner or
later will find their way into the
platforms of the Republicans or
Democrats. He indicted the present
Administration because he claimed
it had "excessive expenditures in
the hands of those incompetent, Mar-
riner Eccles and Henry Morgathau";
it sponsored unconstitutional meas-
ures; it junked the civil service; it is
vindictive to its critics and wasted
time and money on hasty legisla-

Hails New Deal
Mrs. McDonald hailed the Roose-
velt Administration as "one which has
put science into government." She
told the Senate it had to chose be-
tween "a smooth running, scientific
automobile and an old, run-down,
out-of-date wheel barrow." She ad-
vised the students "not to worry about
a few billions," and claimed that the
constitution may be changed by "pop-
ular interpretation, Supreme Court
decision and amendment."
Professor McFarlan devoted his
remarks to an "analysis of the present

"America must break the rule of Wall

The Senate meeting started out
predominately radical, and it was
only gradually that the more conser-

Zurich Physics
Expert To Visitc
Scientists Here
University Department Of
Physics To Be Host To1
Prof. Wolfgang Pauli, head of thec
theoretical physics department at the1
Federal Institute of Technology of]
Zurich, Switzerland, will visit thet
University to consult with members of
the physics department, Thursday,
Friday and Saturday.
Termed by members of the physics
staff as "an extremely renowned
physicist who has made several es-
sential contributions to the theory of
relativity and especially to the quan-
tum theory," Professor Pauli will lec-
ture on the "Relativistic Theory of
Particles Without Spin" to the public
at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in Room 1041
E. Physics Bldg.
He will also address a restricted
audience of mathematically trained
physicists on "Spinor Analysis" dur-
ing the week-end.
Professor Pauli's most important
contribution to science, according to
Prof. Otto Laporte, of the physics de-
partment, is known in the physical
world as the "Pauli exclusion prin-
ciple," which, of a very mathematical
nature, states in essence that no two
electrons within an atom may oc-
cupy the same orbit. The Swiss
physicist was the first one to embody
the spinning electron, a conception of
the electron as spinning about its own
axis while it rotates about the nuc-
leus of the atom, into a satisfactory
theory which would fit with other
theories, Professor Laporte stated.
Professor Pauli has been lecturing
since September, 1935, at the Prince-
ton Institute for Advanced Study.

board. Lois King, '37, was appoint-
ed secretary-treasurer by this group,
and Maryanna Chockley, '37, was se-
lected to act as chairman of Judiciary
Council by this year's president, Win-
ifred Bell, '36.
The newly appointed officers will be
officially inaugurated at the Instal-

served on the editorial staff of The
Daily for three years, in which ca-
pacity she has acted as chairman of
publicity for Panhellenic Ball, Junior
Girls Play, and Sophomore Cabaret.
During the Summer Session she acted
as society editor of The Daily.
On Many Committees
She has also been closely connected
with the League. She is a member
of the house reception committee, and
last summer served on the social and
hostess committees. For the Chil-
dren's Theatre, she worked in the
box-office, handled publicity, and told
stories in the Ann Arbor Schools.
Miss Rueger is affiliated with Col-
legiate Sorosis and Wyvern, junior
honorary society.
Miss King, a member of Pi Beta
Phi and Wyvern, is chairman of the
Theatre Arts committee. She has
acted as program chairman of Sopho-
more Cabaret and has served on the
social committee of the League. Miss
King was associated with the editor-
ial staff of The Daily for two years.
Miss Chockley has sat on the Ju-
diciary Council this year as well as
heading the League Fair and partici-
pating in the Junior Girls Play. She
was chairman of the Sophomore Cab-
aret. She served on the Orientation
committee for two years, acting as
leader of the transfer group last fall.
Miss Chockley is affiliated with Delta
Gamma aiid Wyvern.
Selected On Merit System
The new officers were selected un-
der the Merit System which has been
in effect for three years. Petitions
were submitted to the Judiciary
Council from Feb. 17-28 and inter-
views were held March 1-14.
Recommendations for the positions
of president and of secretary-treas-
urer were placed before the Under-
graduate Council for consideration
and discussion. Accepted by the
Council, they were submitted to the
electoral board consisting of Dean
Alice C. Lloyd, Dr. Margaret Bell,
Miss Ethel McCormick, Jean Seeley,
'36, president of the League, Laura
Jane Zimmerman, '36, treasurer, Bet-
ty Scherling, '36, secretary and Miss
Bell, chairman of the electoral board.
The new officers were unanimously
Positions Combined
The positions of secretary and
treasurer were combined by the Un-
dergraduate Council recently at the
suggestion of Miss Scherling and Miss
Zimmerman, and Miss King will be
the first to fill both offices.
The new chairman of Judiciary
Council is traditionally appointed by
the outgoing chairman from the two
junior members on the council.
Petitions for various chairmanships
will be discussed by the Undergrad-
uate Council, appointing power lying
with the president and the secretary-

treasurer. For the first time the
chairman of Judiciary Council will
sit with the president and secretary-
treasurer as a non-voting member,
serving in an advisory capacity.
