geographical area from which
most of the students come. The
second largest group comes from
Latin America and the Caribbean
The increased number. of stu'
dents from the Caribbean, 230
this fall compared with 90 last
fall, is partly due to the transfer

Cross Says Fraternities Lose Money

Fraternities tend to have a
"champagne diet with a beer in-
come," according to the Assistant'
Dean of Men in charge of frater-
nities, Bill Cross.
A recent report of fraternity cost
for the school year 1956-57 sub-
stantiates his statement. Accord-
ing to the cost breakdovin by the
Ann Arbor Trust Company, most
houses serving meals lose money.
U'T eachers
New translations of two classi-
cal works will be published Friday
by the University Press.
The complete works o'Roman
poet Gaius Valeriou Catallus have
been translated by Prof.-Frank 0.
Copley of the classical studies de-
partment, who has been studying'
Catullus for twenty-five years.
Among Prof. Copley's other
translations are Plautus' "The
Menaechmi" and "The Haunted
House," and Terence's "The Wo-
man of Andros."
Prof. Moses Hadas, Jay Profes-j
sor of Greek at Columbia Univer-
sity, has translated "An Ethio-
pian Romance" by Helidorus.
"An Ethiopian Romance" 'was
one of the earliest novels, and in
its first English translation was a
favorite in Elizabethan England.
Prof. Hadas' other works in-
clude the editing of the Modern
Library editions of "Tacitus" "Ci-
cero," "G r e e k Poets," and

Rebates to members not wishing
a meal on a certain day account
for the greater part of the loss.
Lack of adequate supervision by
the chapter's steward, an "extrav-
agant cook" and "improper buy-
ing" are also cited in the report
as factors.
Stewards Could Stop Waste
"Fratenities have failed to in-
crease board rates to meet the in-
crease in cost of food," Cross said.
Cross added that better trained
stewards and fraternity treasurers
could eliminate much of the waste-
ful spending.
The average fraternity man has
to pay $2.35 per day for his meals.
For every dollar spent for food,
approximately 75 per cent goes for
the actual meal while 25 per cent
accounts for the kitchen overhead.
Kitchen overhead includes ,the
cook's salary, kitchen help, main-
tenance bills and other expenses
necessary for the kitchens opera-
tion. The cook's salary represents
the greatest outlay of money.
Room Costs Show Gain
Most fraternities reduce their
board cost by seeing a profit in
their room rent. Almost every fra-
ternity has a definite gain in their
room cost accounts. The average
member is charged $28.00 per
month to live in the chapter house.
Fraternities show a tendency to
