things, he said.
The tutorial plan used at Harvard,
Oxford and Cambridge with its quick
assimilation of the students into the
whole is a type of thing much needed
here, Professor McClusky stated. Yet.
if the fraternities and sororities
would, they could take over at least
a part of this task in adjustment in
such schools as Michigan, he said.
This could be accomplished, Pro-
fessor McClusky pointed out, if the
fraternities and sororities would "edu-
cate" their members-that is, provide
a stimulating atmosphere and take
advantage of their national charac-
Guidance in scholastic and voca-
tional questions, pre-marital prob-
lems, personality adjustment and the
establishment of a philosophy of life
could all be given by trained repre-
sentatives of the national organiza-
tion who made Such work their busi-
ness, he said. Too, upperclassmen
could be trained to do work of the
same sort, he added.
An obvious way of getting out ofj
their present rut would be the pur-
chase of good prints, recorded sym-
phonies and the establishment and
use of well-chosen libraries so that

Bay City Girls Mix
Their Homemaking
With 'X's' And 'Y's'
A course in home planning holds+
more appeal for Bay City girls than
do mathematical theories, Prof. Nor-
man H. Anning of the mathematics
department revealed after observing
classes in Bay City Central High
School Thursday.
The girls are taught all the mathe-
matical principles involved in run-
ning a household efficiently, in the
course integrated around the idea of
a planned home. The students, 85 per
cent of whom will never go to college,
display a great deal of natural in-
terest in the course, Professor Anning
Besides their x's and y's, the girls
are taught to read meters and repair
household gadgets. Installment buy-
ing and budget studies take the rest
of their time.
Professor Annnig considered "high-

Loan Prospect
on Corn Crop
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.-(P)-
Prospects for a government loan on
this year's corn crop apparently im-
proved today, but the outlook for new
surplus control legislation which
President Roosevelt wants to accom-
pany sucl loans remained uncertain.
Mr. Roosevelt discussed the corn
loan proposal at a conference with
Secretaries Wallace and Morgenthau
and Daniel W. Bell, acting director of
the budget.
A press conference statement by
President Roosevelt, that it had not
been decided whether new taxes
would be necessary, revived specula-
tion that crop loans may be financed
by reenactment of levies on the pro-
cessing or manufacture of farm pro-

living in the fraternity or sorority
atmosphere would be a delight, Pro-
fessor McClusky stated. The organ-
ization's interest in parties, clothes
and girls could be continued if par-
tially subdued, he pointed out, but a
magnificent advance would be made
over the present superficial advan-
tages of mere group living.
"There has been a change in the
way of things in recent years and'
with that change a new attitude to-
ward fraternities and sororities has
arisen. The old 'Joe College' style
of leisure living is no longer tolerated
and neither is excessive display of
wealth. Too, there is a new ap-
proach to education as represented in
such schools as Stevens and Antioch.
"Unless fraternities and sororities
rouse themselves from their present
lethargy to meet these new condi-
tions the question of their continued
existence is problematical," Professor
McClusky concluded.;
