Subject of Conference
To Be Post War Plans
"Post War Plans For Fraternities"
will be the subject for discussion by
the University of Michigan Interfra-
ternity Alumni Conference at 2 p.m.
today in the Union.
Participating in the conference will
be alumni committees from campus
fraternities, fraternity presidents, In-
terfraternity Council officers and

"Post War Plans For Fraternities"
originated in the form of a set of rec-
ommendations by the conference.
The set of recommendations was
adopted by the Committee on Stu-
dent Affairs at their May 28 meeting.
The Conference will now discuss the
status of these regulations and deter-
mine how they will be enforced.
The conference report as adopted
by the Committee included subcom-
mittee recommendations on alumni
relations, undergraduate leadership

and installation; scholarship and
chapter finance, house management
and property maintenance.
Delegates to the conference will

1934 Hopwood
Novel Published
Fynette Fiske Rowe waited ten
years for her Hopwood winning novel,
"The Chapin Sisters," to be pub-
lished, but some reward for her pa-
tience came in the November 1 issue
of the Saturday, Review of Literature
when her picture was used for the
cover when her novel was reviewed.
Mrs. Rowe won the only major
award for fiction in the Hopwood
contests of 1934 and not until this fall
was her book published.
Reviewing the book, Rosemary Carr
Benet said, "This has a quality of its
own and freshness and vigor. It is
like a novel of a vanished era, the
Mary Wilkins Freeman view of New
England, for instance, combined with
a modern psychological study of re-
Prof. Roy W. Cowden, director of
the Hopwood Room, said that this is
the first time that an award winner
has appeared on the cover of the
magazine for a first book although
later works of Hopwood winners have
been accorded similar recognition.
Lectures Only,
Seen by Boak
"If professors and classrooms con-
tinue to be so scarce and class enroll-
ments in this department continue
to increase as they have this semester,
it may be necessary to change all
courses, except those for freshmen,
to lecture courses and to have no
recitation sections," Prof. A. E. R.

Boak, chairman of the Department
of History stated yesterday.
Even though History 11 and 12
are exceedingly crowded now, the
department would not abandon the
present combined lecture and recita-
tion system, in the event of such a
change in the other courses, Prof.
Boak said.
"I want it understood," he contin-
ued, "that at present the department
has an adequate teaching staff. We
have been strengthened by the re-
turn of Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann
from naval service, by the appoint-
ments of Prof. Andrew A. Lobanov-
Rostovsky in the field of Russian
history and Dr. William R. Leslie as
an instructor in European history.
Therefore, if there is no change in
the situation, courses will remain as
they are."

ference will continue throughout the
William W. Werntz, chief accoun-
tant of the Securities and Exchange
Commission, will speak on the subject
"Trends in Accounting" at 2 p.m.
Maurice H. Stans and Cyril Talbot,
both members of the American Insti-
tute of Accountants Committee on
Accounting' Procedures, will discuss
current problems in their field.
At a luncheon meeting in the
Michigan League, John D. Morrison,
Auditor General of Michigan, will de-
scribe his duties.
The morning session will include
speeches by Ernest H. Fletcher, sec-
retary of the Michigan State Board
of Accountancy; Alexander S. Currie,
of Detroit; and John Airey, president
of King-Seeley Corp. and director of
the National Association of Manufac-
