Fraternity Men
To Hold State
MeetApril 29
Discussion Of Problems
Is The Chief Purpose Of
Regional Conclave
The Interfraternity Council of
Michigan State College is planning a
gathering of fraternity men April 29
to May 1 in Lansing to "consider
problems facing the American social
fraternity," according to George
Cosper, '37, president of the Interfra-
resnietyonf interfiaternity coun-
cils, alumni and fraternity presidents
wili meet to discuss the solutionf of
these problems, according to the in-
formation received by Cosper. The
idea of holding a regional conference
of fraternities was taken from the
recent convocation of fraternities of
eastern schools held at Syracuse
University, Syracuse, N.Y.
First Such Meeting
Though this- is the first time such
a conference has been held in this
state, according to Cosper, there has
been need for it.
"In the past, fraternities have been
characterized by an attitude of an-
tagonism between them, particularly
in rushing," Cosper said, "And per--
haps this meeting will be able to ef-
fect a better understanding among
Cosper also expressed the hope
that the meeting might be helpful
in raising the public's erroneous con-
ception of the social fraternity. It
is possible that such a meeting can
do as much toward improving the
status of the social fraternity as the
abolition of Hell Week has, Cosper
Will Discuss Rushing
Plans for the meeting are generally
similaT to those for the National In-
berfraternity Conference, according
to the plans that have been sent Cos-
per. Among the topics to be dis-
cussed at group meetings will be
rushing, fraternity-institution rela-
;ionships, financial problems and fi-
nancial aids, scholarships, pledge
:raining and analogus subjects.
Cosper plans to attend the meeting,
but Dean of Students Joseph A. Burs-
ley said yesterday~ that he did not
think he would be able to attend.

Michigan Men Like Samson
Don't Want Short Hair Cuts

Saturday Is Most Popular
Day For Gtting Cuts,
Union Barber Finds
Michigan men lose their temerity
and become submissive when they
are seated -before a barber, the man
at the second chair in the Union shop
said yesterday. The result is a typ-
ical Michigan conservative cut.
Freakish trimmings including the
famous crew cut, brand the student
as too conspicuous, the barber point-
ed out.
No More Crew Cuts
"And men on campus don't want
to be that. They don't even go in
for crew cuts in the summer any
more. It takes too long for their
hair to grow back and besides, many
of the fellows haven't a correctly
shaped head.
"Once in a while you'll find a bar-
ber who feels experimental and be-
comes a little bold with the scissors,
but most students don't want their
hair cut short on the sides or on the
top, and they're emphatic about
One of the popular superstitions
that the barber is the one who does
all the talking, is untrue, he said.
Customers Begin Conversation
'"6ur rule is generally to keep quiet
unless the customer begins the con-
versation. Some of our better cus-
tomers talk about nearly everything
under the sun, though football and
the weather hold the spotlight. "But
of course, we've got to know who our
customers are."~
Most of his patrons have their
hair cut on Saturday, though, until
recently, Friday led the other days.
"The only way I can explain the
change is that most of the fellows go
to the Saturday night dance, rather
than on Friday night. Through the
week, we average 125 haircuts, about
20 a day Btthere's a lot of varia-
"Most of those who come in

shave themselves,"' he said, "and I
don't try to talk them into anything
more than they want."
The man in the second chair has
practiced his tonsorial art in the
Union for 15 years, and is second only
to the manager, who has been there
for 23 years, since the shop opened.
There are usually a few student bar-
bers, but they're hard to find now, he
"Sometimes we have as many as
five, but now we have only three. It's
tough to find a student who has
passed the state examination."
"Next," he cried.

There is no rule in the biggest Woolworth five-and-ten-cent store in
Detroit that prohibits girl clerks from sliding down bannisters, but it
just isn't done. So when the girls went on a strike, that was one
of the things they did to pass the time, and here are four of them on a
non-stop bannister trip to the basement. Meanwhile their sit-down
strike spread to another store.

tn my new picture ~Swing High,
C Swing Low' I sing a song for the first
a time since I have been on the screen.
To do this, I spent months taking
singing lessons. And with this added
strain, my throat was not in good

that when choosing cigarettes, select

oLuckies. Since then I've found
s~ that a light smoke and my throat get
along together' just fine."

An independent survey was made recently
among professional men and women-lawyers,
doctors, lecturers, scientists, etc. Of those who said
they smoke cigarettes, more than 87% stated they
personally prefer a light smoke.
Miss Lombard verifies the wisdom of this pref-
erence, and so do other leading artists of the
radio, stage, screen and opera. Their voices are
their fortunes. That's why so many of them
smoke Luckies. You, too, can have the throat pro-
tection of Luckies-a light smoke, free of certain
harsh irritants removed by the exclusive process THE
