Proposed Plan Would Permit
County Charter Governments

LANSING, June 7-P)-The State
Institute of Local Government today
approved a proposed amendment to
the state constitution permitting any
county to establish a charter form
of government.
The proposal, an alternative to the
Wayne County Home Rule Amend-
meigt, will be presented to the 1947
legislature, which will be asked to
submit an amendment to the state's
voters at the next general election.
Charter Limits Provided
The alternative proposal puts li-
mits on the charter form of govern-
ment which counties may adopt, but
opens the way for any county of the
state, regardless of population, to
operate under a charter. The Home
Rule Amendment, twice defeated, was
limited to the large counties but
placed few limits on the type of char-
tel..
The Institute's proposed amend-
ment provides that:
1. Voters of a county may consider
adopting a charter when at least
five per cent of the voters who voted

ing in the fall was announced yes-
terday by the Inter-Fraternity Coun-
cil.
The IFC announced that chapter

the second Sunday after classes be-
gin this fall. Harry Jackson, president
of the IFC, said that, for those who
register with IFC, the new regula-

"Next year's registraton cards will
also have space for the rushee to spe-
cify any particular fraternities that
he desires a date with during the for-
mal rushing period," Jackson added.
To acquaint students on the
campus with the advantages and ac-
tivities enjoyed by fraternity men,
the IFC has authorized any necessary
expenditure for a publication to be
distributed during the registration
period next semester.
Formal rushing will last only two
semesters next year. Rushing during
the summer sessions will be informal
according to present plans.

eine. An attempt will be made to de-
lineate the field of preventive medi-
cine, its points of view and philo-
