New Pamphlet
For Freshmen
Publication Marks Effort
For. Better Orientation
Of MichiganApplicants
Better integration and orientation,
of prospective rushees is the objective
of a new fraternitytpamphlet now be-
ing planned by the Interfraternity
Council, Tom Adams, '40, president,
said yesterday.
Fraternity organizations in other
universities have tried and found suc-
cessful this method of reaching the
incoming freshmen, Adams pointed
gut. ,Qreatly aided by their exper-
ience, the Interfraternity Council
plans to issue a pamphlet illustrating
the fraternity system here on campus
and other phases of University life.
The pamphlet will be sent to all in-
coming freshmen along with copies
of the summer Daily and material
from various indepbndent organiza-
By telling those coming here some
of the potentialities of fraternities, itI
is hoped to overcome, the usual dif-
ficulties facing freshmen who only
become aware of the possibilities
available when it is too late. To
further facilitate rushing, the Coun-
cil plans to have three booths for
registration this coming fall rather
than one as in past years. To elimi-
nate -the lack of coordination with
respect to rushees, the Council plans
to have a banquet for all registered
rushees on the Friday of Orientation

Hyma Writes
'Eternal Life'
Discussion Of Spiritualism
Is Book's Theme
An historical analysis of the rela-
tion between Christianity and spirit-
ualism is the subject of "Eternal Life,"
latest book published by Prof. Albert
Hyma of the history department. It
will be placed on sale June 6 on
Highlighted in the book is a sum-
marization of the sermons of the
Apostle Peter and his contest with
Simon the Magician, greatest medium
in the Roman Empire. Prof. Hyma
here draws upon the account by
Clement of Rome, who accompanied
Peter from 34 to 53 A.D.
Contact between Christians on
earth and those in Heaven is dis-
cussed by Professor Hyma in detail,
and he mentions also famous cases,
such as those of Dante, Thomas a
Kempis and Joan of Arc.
He shows that spiritualism is very
much like witchcraft, and therefore,
in part, is to be condemned. Professor
Hyma points out, however, that com-
munion with good spirits has been
proved to be historically correct and
results in greater intellectual and
spiritual capacity.

Language Exchanges
Planned For Summer

this summer at the International
Center to enable those majoring in
Latin-American, Near Eastern and
Far Eastern Studies to get practice
in speaking certain foreign languages,
according to J. Raleigh Nelson, direc-
tor of the Center.
Foreign students, who are now
studying at various schools in the
United States will come here during
the Summer Session to meet and talk
with American students in their lan-
guages. They will meet at regular
four o'clock teas and converse in
Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, or Chi-
nese, the languages chosen to be used
this summer.
A special reception will be held for

of the usual League affair.


Milk Measure

LANSING, May 26.-(P)-The milk
control bill, which pegs the price of
milk to assure the producer a fair
profit for his product, was sigpled to-
day by Governor Dickinson.
Under the new act distributors will
be required to pay at least the set
price for fluid milk. Another provi-
sion, aimed at halting price wars,
forbids sale of milk at less than cost.
The Governor said he hoped "soon"
to appoint a milk control board of
two producers, one distributor, a
representative of the consumers and
the commissioner of agriculture.

Governor Dickinson

More than half of the freshmen
women questioned at Mosher-Jordan
Hall, in a survey conducted by The
Daily, were opposed to the 9:30 p.m.
weekday curfew ruling effected this
All, however, agreed unanimously
that library work was seriously ham-
pered when the permission for fresh-
men was limited from 10:30 to 9:30
"There are people who go to the
library to study," declared one girl.
"The time is far too short-at the
most an hour and three-quarters-to
get much done. Research papers in
particular are affected."
Among the suggestions made for
remedying the situation was that
freshmen ought to be permitted to
stay out until the library closes, dur-
ing the period before finals. Others
favored a 10 p.m. curfew; still others,
10:15 p.m.-
One girl proposed that a checking
system be established at the library,
where the freshmen women would be
required to sign in and out, much as

they do already in the dormitories or
League houses.
Several of the number opposed to
the new system were highly indig-
nant at what they termed being
"If we. aren't old enough to de-
cide for ourselves whether we are go-
ing to studyor date on a week night,"
stated one freshmen, "we aren't old
enough to come to college."
About one-third of the girls ques-
tioned expressed approval of the new
rule. Nine-thirty curfew, they said,
allow time for dating and time for
studing, a pleasant combination that
does not make it necessary any long-
er to study later-or early-after a
One upperclassman favored giving
the freshmen 10:30 p.m. permission
as a method of eliminating all but
the serious-minded.
Another young lady shook her head.
"Nine-thirty permission is a good
idea," she said. "I can't run riot!"
