Rules Of Warfare Maden
For Annual Struggle;f
Rough Battle Is Seen
The oldest tradition on the Michi-e
gan campus-freshmen and sopho-
mores' Black Friday-will explode in-
to 1939 reality tonight in a battle forh
breeches that is scheduled to con-
tinue far into Ann Arbor's chillye
Ominous rumblings of tonight's
tussle for trousers have been heardh
ever since the sidewalks and walls of
Alumni Hall and Angell Hall werev
splashed with white freshmen paintp
a couple of weeks ago. The cam-t
paign has become more heated in re-c
cent days.
Mostly it will be a rough-and-'
tumble contest for pants, but a few
rules of warfare have been an-h
nounced. One of these is a provi-
sion forbidding any fighting in the
West Quadrangle of men's residence
halls. The others, as adopted by the
freshmen, are self-explanatory: >j
1. Any sophomore resident of any
dormitory is to be left alone while
he is in the quadrangle.
2. No freshman is to go to any fra-
ternity house on Friday night except
in case of a pledge formal.
3. No unnecessary force is to be
employed. The real purpose of the
evening is to depant the opposition.
and not to ruin them for life.
4. Leave the fire hoses alone!
5. The gates in the West Quad-
rangle will be locked at 7:30 and
the only entrances will be through
Michigan House and the Union.
No one has consulted the weather-i

Senior class members of the fores-

to elect a slate of officers, the Men's
Judiciary Committee announced yes-
Balloting for president, vice-presi-I
dent, secretary, and treasurer will be
held in the Seminar Room of the
Natural Science building from 10 a.m.

Today's election follows a quarrel
in the forestry school a few days ago
over the selection of nominees. A
convention which had been held to
nominate men for positions was de-
clared void, and the ultimate candi-
dates were chosen by petitions.
Members of the Men's Judiciary
committee said yesterday that they
expect one of the largest votes in
several years.
Kelly Investigates Control
Over 'Bootlegged' Gas
LANSING, Nov. 16.--(P)-Secre-
tary of State Harry F. Kelly planned
tomorrow to visit State Police and
sheriffs along Michigan's southern
border to investigate the need for
closer control over "bootlegged" gas-
Until August, 1938, Kelly said, the
Department of State maintained 14
inspectors on the Ohio and Indiana

border checking gasoline trucks to
determine if state taxes had been
paid on their cargoes.

man, but it is generally admitted by
strategians fromaboth.camps that a
frosty night is ahead.
The locale of the battlefield is not
established in the rules, and in past
years it has wandered anywhere from
the University golf course to the scen-
ery of the Island and the bordering
Huron river..
Both freshmen and sophomores
have guarded their campaign plans
with almost as much caution as that
employed by teachers in protecting
questions before final examinations.
Threats and challenges, however,
have been flung about the campus
without caution ever since the first
pep meeting of the year.
Whatever may be the outcome of
tonight's encounter, it has been pre-
ceeded by a colorful history of fierce
and fervant depanting raids. A
glance at posters from the 1907-1911
era of University history which are
hanging in the basement corridor of
tlhe Union tell the story. They con-

Tells of Runs
In Holy Land
Lecture By Nelson Glueck
Describes Huge Palestine
Excavation Discoveries
Palestine, the greatest land-route
between :the East' and the West 'both
in ancient and modern times, is a
veritable treasure-chest for archaeol-
ogists,..Dr.. Nelson. Glueck,..director of
the American School of Oriental Re-
search in Jerusalem stated yesterday
in a University lecture in Rackham
Almost all the 'great nations of
antiquity left their traces there, Dr.
Glueck continued, and .thus the
archaeologist, 'excavating in Palestine,
must firstlocate the ancient sources
of water the ancient trade routes,
andc naturaf f'ortification areas, and
ifeaidd by an extensive knowledge of
native lanuages,' diplomacy ad an
cilent°, crafts,' canl proceed to 'make
interesting and valuable archaeolo-
gical, discoveries 'in the Holy Land.
"But the archaeozogist in Palestine,"
Dr. Glueck emphasized, "is not in-
terested in proving or disproving bib-
lical legend. He is merely there in
the interests of science," he said.
Dr. Glueck, in outlining the history
of his own archaeological exploits in
the Holy Land, pointed out the diffi-
culties of such work in a region so
much in turmoil as Palestine has
been in the past five years. He also
indicated his methods of gaining the
friendship of the various tribal chief-
tains if whose territory he desired to
