Panhellenic
Alters Rules
For Rushing
Practices To Be Altered By
Fundamental Changes In
Regulations
Societies Limited
To But One Party
Rnshing Period In Fall
Will Be Extended Full
Week In Length
The Panhellenic Association de-
cided at its final meeting of the year
yesterday to provide for sorority rush-
ing every other day, rather than daily,
with the rushing period in the fall'
extended a week.
According to Betty Anne Beebe, '37,
president of Panhellenic, sororities
may not call for their rushees before
the formals but they may take them
home, and the formals themselves are
to be one-half hour shorter. Pledging
will be held on Saturday instead of
Sunday. The date set is Oct. 17.
Rushing is to extend from 3 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 26 to 9:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday, Oct. 14. Initial teas will be
given from 3 to 7 p.m. Sept. 26 and
27. Sororities may have only one
party, a dinner on Tuesday and
Thursday of the second week. In the
third week a sorority may have a din-
ner on Monday, Tuesday and Wednes-
day.
Formal dinners, which lasted be-
fore this until 10 p.m. will end at 9:30
p.m., according to Miss Beebe. The
time may later be cut to 9 p.m., she
said. Such a situation, in the opinion
of the Panhellenic president, will
make it easier for rushees to reach
their homes on time and allow for
other activities after the formal din-
ners.
On the Saturdays of the first and
second weeks, Oct. 3 and 10, a lunch-
eon and a dinner may be held. For-
mals are to be on Tuesday and Thurs-
day of the third week Oct. 13 and
14.
These changes have been discussed
by the various houses during sorority
meetings. It was felt, according to
Miss Beebe, that such alterations in
the rushing system would give both
newcoming women and sorority mem-
bers a better chance to make their
decisions more easily and also would
provide for more time for study.
Hindenburg Is
Hours Behind
First Crossing
Is Soaring Off U. S. Coast;
Expected At Lakehurst
Early Wedesday
(By the Associated Press)
The Zeppelin Hindenburg, hours
behind the record she made on her
maiden voyage, soared through minor
local storms o the United States
coast Tuesday night and was expected
to berth at Lakehurst, N. J, early
Wednesday.
After flying south of her planned
course to dodge storms, the huge craft
was reported at 5 p.m. (Eastern
Standard Time) approximately 466

miles east of New York City. Her posi-
tion, a wireless message received at
the Brooklyn Navy Yard said, was
39.11 norfth latitude, 64.30 west longi-
tude.
Officers of the airship reported
they exoected to rieach Lakehurst at
about 2 a.m. (Eastern Standard
Time).
She was expected to fly over New
York City shortly after midnight be-
fore proceeding to Lakehurst.
Clear weather and northwest winds
were predicted for the Hindenburg
when she neared the coast by Dr.
James H. Kimball, senior meteorolo-
gist of the United States Weather
Bureau in New York.
He said that she flew through local
storms Tuesday but none was serious
and that this applied to conditions
for the whole trip.
The Hindenburg left Frankfort on
the Main, Germany, last Saturday
at 11:35 p.m., (Eastern Standard
Time.)

Butzel Will Begin
Campaign Tonight
Fred Butzel, '97 of Detroit will start
the Hillel drive for $3,000 to aid Jew-
ish refugees when he addresses the
general organization meeting of the
campaign committee at 8:15 tonight
at the Hillel Foundation.
The drive is part of a national cam-
paign to raise $7,000,000 for relief to
German and other European refugees
and put a maximum number of them
on a self-supporting basis in Palestine.
Mr. Butzel, who is a well known
Detroit philanthropist, received his
Bachelor's degree at this University
and the degree of Doctor of Law at
the University of Detroit.
Dr. Bernard Heller will also address
the meeting and introduce Mr. Butzel.
Definite plans for both parts of the
drive, that for students and that for
faculty members and townspeople,
will be formulated. The position of
the various collection boxes that will
be set up on campus will be an-
nounced, Irving Levitt, co-chairman
of the student committee said.

President Asks
For New Trial
Of Guffey Act
Mine Operators Draft A
Spbstitute Embodying
Bill's Provisions
WASHINGTON, May 19. - (P) -
President Roosevelt called for a re-
newed effort to reach and maintain
the objectives of the newly invalidat-
ed Guffey Coal Control Act today,
even as mine operators drafted a sub-
stitute embodying the defunct law's
price fixing provisions.
Asserting that the law in question,
declared unconstitutional yesterday
by the Supreme Court, represented an
agreement between employers and
employes on a general method of im-
proving conditions in the soft coal
industry, the chief executive said the
New Deal must keep on trying to
reach those objectives.
Coal operators who supported the
original act were meeting meanwhile,
flanked by counsel, at a Washington
hotel, pinning their hopes upon the
one apparent possible loophole left by
the court's sweeping decision -leg-
islation to permit price fixing.
Union Expects Support
Indications were that such legisla-
tion, omitting wage, hour and work-
ing condition provisions, which the
Court said invaded the powers of local
governments, would be acceptable to
labor. Not speaking officially, mine
union leaders made it clear they were
counting upon their organization to
back up their demands.
During the day it was made known
officially that pending an appeal to
the Supreme Court the New Deal's
interpretation of yesterday's second
court reverse - an opinion by the
Court of Appeals of the District of
Columbia holding the resettlement
administration partly unconstitution-
al and questioning the validity of the
1935 Relief Act - would be that it
applied only to a single resettlement
project in New Jersey.
"Have you anything to say about
the Guffey decision?" was the first
question asked of President Roosevelt
at a press conference.
The President smiled, flicked a cig-
arette ash from his coat, and charac-
terized the outlawed act as a measure
intended to rectify a difficult situa-
tion in a major industry. Both em-
ployers and miners had reached an
agreement, he continued, on a general
method of improving conditions in
the industry.
Will "Keep Trying"
The Guffey Bill represented an ef-
fort to obtain legislation which would
carry these objectives into effect, he
said, but added that this particular
legislation apparently was not suc-
cessful. Then came his statement
that his administration would keep
on trying to reach those objectives.
A hint of irony was audible in his
tone as he said three opinions hand-
ed down by members of the Court
would prove informative and educa-

tional and show that there remained
a difference of current interpretation
among the Federal judiciary.
The President declined to say
whether new legislation would be
pressed by him at this session. Lead-
ers of both houses are bending every
effort toward adjournment by June
6. Later, however, in response to a
question on another subject, Mr.
Roosevelt reiterated that so far as he
was concerned there were just two
"must" bills on the program -re-
lief and taxes.
Air Organizations
Vote To Combine
Unification of the two Michigan
student aero organizations was ef-
fected last night when the Institute
of Aeronautical Sciences voted to ab-
sorb the aero branch of the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Nudists May Gambol a
On Streets After Dark
Local lovers of nudism or the "life
in the raw" idea can indulge in their1
favorite sport between the hours of
8 p.m. and sunrise, or at least they
can try it!
A city ordinance of Ann Arbor pro-
hibits indecent exposure "between the
hour of sunrise in the morning and 8
o'clock ir the evening," but mentions
nothing about romping about en
dehabile during the later hours.
Perhaps the city fathers realized
that the "back to nature" movement
can be practiced much more fittingly
without a blistering sun.t
Two Members
Are To Resign
FromFaculty
Prof. Timoshenko Will Go
To Stanford; McCabe Tox
Carnegie1
Two more members of the faculty
yesterday added themselves to the
list of those who will leave the Uni-
versity at the end of the current1
semester.
Prof. Stephen L. Timoshenko of
the engineering mechanics depart-
ment and Prof. Warren L. McCabe of
the chemical engineering departmentI
are the pair who have accepted po-
sitions in other institutions. The
former will go to Leland Stanford1
University, and the latter has been
made a full professor at the Carnegie
Institute of Technology.
Widely recognized as an authority
on the design of rigid-frame airships,I
Professor Timoshenko has had a long
career here as lecturer on and in-
vestigator into the theory and appli-
cation of stresses on materials.
For Professor McCabe, who has,
been a contributor to the understand-
ing of the nature of unit processes in
general and distillation in particular,
this transfer will represent an ad-
vancedment from the position of as-
sociate professor which he now holds.
This brings to five the number of
faculty members who have recently
left or are about to leave after re-
ceiving positions in other universities.
The others are Dr. Rudolph Win-
neker of the history department, who
will go to the University of Nebraska,
Prof. Howard Mumford Jones of the
English department, who will go to
Harvard and Prof. Oscar J. Camp-
bell also of the English department,
who is now teaching at Columbia.

Education Board's Refusal
To Renew Contract Of
Kermit Eby Looms
Ann Arbor High
Teacher Under Fire
Academic Freedom Issue,
He Says; 3 Professors
Lend Support
By FRED WARNER NEAL
The possibility that Kermit Eby,
Socialist Ann Arbor High School his-
tory teacher, may be dismissed be-
cause of his "political'beliefs" loomed
last night.
Renewal of Mr. Eby's contract with
the Board of Education has been
withheld until the Board's meeting
next Wednesday night, according to
Otto W. Haisley, superintendent of
schools, who said that at that time
"the matter will be given considera-
tion,"
Mr. Haisley admitted that "the po-
litical beliefs of Mr. Eby have been
brought in," and Mr. Eby declared
that "the matter of academic freedom
is involved." Backed by three Uni-
versity professors representing the
Teacher's Federation, American Fed-
eration of Labor affiliated union, the
Parent Teachers Association and the
Ann Arbor Citizens' Council, the mat-
ter last night was anything but set-
tled,
Question 'Propagandizing'
"Two angles are involved," Mr.
Haisley said: "One, Mr. Eby's political
activity which has brought criticism
on the Board; and Two, whether or
not he is propagandizing." Mr.
Haisley pointed out that the history
teacher under fire "is teaching con-
troversial subjects --social problems
and international affairs."
Mr. Eby was staunchly defended by
L. L. Forsythe, principal of Ann Ar-
bor High School, who asserted that
"Eby is a splendid teacher." He has
a very circumspect proceedure in his
classes and is very fair in his discus-
sions." Two of Mr. Forsythe's chil-
dren take courses from Mr. Eby,
"Of course anybody is influenced by
his political beliefs to a certain ex-
tent," Mr. Forsythe said, "but Mr.
Eby sees to it that he arouses the
students to think for themselves,
without emotion and unbiasedly."
Well-Known As Socialist
Mr. Eby, known as a liberal and a
socialist who arranged for Norman
Thomas to come to Ann Arbor earlier
in the spring, declared that the "mat-
ter of academic freedom is involved"
in the Board's action. "It is not a
problem of personalities," he main-
tained, "but one of principle. The
thing resolves itself into two ques-
tions: Can you teach controversial
issues? And does a school teacher
have a right to affiliate himself with
groups with which he is in sym-
pathy?"
More than 500 Ann Arbor High
School students have signed a peti-
tion protesting Mr. Eby's near-dis-
missal, and a similar petition, ac-
cording to Mr. Eby, is being circulated
on the campus among his former
students. Supporting Eby are Prof.
John Shepard, president of the
Teachers' Federation, of which he
is a member; Prof. Wesley H. Maur-
er of the journalism department;
Prof. Leroy Waterman of the oriental
languages and literatures depart-
ment; Neil Staebler of the Citizens'
Council; and Lewis C. Reimann of
the P.T.A.
Refuse To Comment
Ezra Shoecraft, president of the
Board of Education, is out of town
and could not be reached. Miss Eliza-
beth Slack, secretary and Charles
Henderson, a trustee, refused to com-
ment on the affair. Prof. Eric Wal-
ter of the English department, also a
member of the school board, said he
would not discuss the affair because

he was not present at the meeting
when it was first brought up, but that
after the session next Wednesday he
"will be glad to express his views."
It could not be ascertained whether
or not the meeting next Wednesday
will be an open one.
Mr. Haisley last night told The
Daily that the Board of Education
has made no attempt to find out
whether or not Mr. Eby was actually
"propagandizing." It was indicated
