Year Book Scouts Search for jUni\ersity^sMostBeautijulGirl\Announce Winner NextThursday; to Be Enter¬tained by Northwestern.Twenty-two qualified agents, ap¬pointed by the Cap and Gown, arethoroughly scouring the campus andgraduate schools in search of theMoat Beautiful Girl registered inthe University.The quest will end next Thursday,and the winner will be proclaimedin next Friday’s* Daily Maroon.On February 1 the queen will be¬gin a round of sittings for portraitsand pew.spaper photographers pre¬paratory to embarking upon a week¬end of royal entertainment providedby Northwestern University.Goes to CourtThen, on February 19, the Capand Gown queen will vepresent theUniversity in the Court of Big TenQueens, from whom one girl willbe selected “Empress of the BigTen,’ to reign, with her court, overthe Seventh Annual NorthwesternUniversity Charity Ball.“Our agents are turning in names 'in nightly reports,” explained Her- ibert Larson, business manager of ithe Cap and Gown, “but we wel- icome suggestions from everyone. iAny girl in the University is eligi-,ble. Beauty is what we are seeking !—not personality.”To insure an impartial selection, ^ the judges were not disclosed at thetime of the statement.“It is very possible that a grad¬uate woman may be chosen,” dis¬closed Genevieve Fish, editor of theyearbook. '‘The idea that more beau¬ty is contained in the undergraduatelevels than in the older schools isdefinitely false.”The queen will be chosen in personrather than through photographs,as was last year’s yearbook queen.A specially posed picture will, ofcourse, be included in the 1936 Capand Gown.Persons other than the qualifiedagents may leave their nominationsat the Cap and Gown office in Lex¬ington Hall during this week, anduntil Wednesday of next week.Names thus submitted will bearequal weight with' those turned inby the yearbook agents.According to Larson, the field ofselection includes the whole Univer¬sity, “The Homecoming committeeonly considered beauty new to theschool,” he said. “We recognize theirefforts in disclosing new material,but are making our search all in¬clusive.”“We believe that there is muchbeauty in Billings Hospital,” he con¬cluded, “and will appreciate hearingfrom that quarter. We have only afew agents covering the group, andwould appreciate all the help the in¬ternes can give us in this.” F raternity MenGet WarningsAbout RushingIllegal Rushing Defined byRobert Shallenberger;Interfraternity Head.Fi’aternity men, repi'esentativesof the 17 houses on campus, gath¬ered last night in a meeting of theInterfraternity Council and heardlast reminders from the Interfra¬ternity Committee on the eve of thefinal week of rushing.Intensive rush week begins atnoon today, and continues until10:30 next Wednesday evening.

The Bos defended the ques¬tion.And Sex and Democracy and FreeIxove and Economics and NaughtyWomen and Basic Fundamentals allcame into the arguments to form oneof the best bull sessions ever heardin these parts.The hoboes came from the down¬town Hobo college Knowledge Box.and were the real McCoy. They’reout for publicity, because that bringspeople to the Saturday night forumsat 1118 West Madison, and peopleoften bring coins which bring PorkChops which means food.Psychological panhandling, theycall it.The University boys came from theDebate Union, and were likewise thereal McCoy. They did it for the funof it, and found that the Bo’s werejust as literate and sharp as any¬one’s debater.Old Man Sheridan of the Knowl¬edge box started things off by tell¬ing how only progency and destruc¬tion were left in the wake of theOlde Tyme Knighthood frats. Andmodern fraternities, such as the Ma-By CODY PFANSTIEHLdebated with l basis of a profession a businessaid.”Then Douglas Wehr, a fraternityman, said that the slogan of -^theFrench revolution was Liberty,Equality, and Fraternity. “Pre.sentfraternities stand for the spirit of anideal,” he observed, ‘Though ourgroups may not realize it.”Then Harry Taylor of the Knowl¬edge Box, a member of the Royal Or¬der of the Moose for 14 years, saidfraternities were a racket, and high¬ly undemocratic, and went on to talkabout Mooses and Elks and such.Thereupon Joseph Sondheimer,fraternity man, said that fraterni¬ties served as “an anchor spot, andhaven of fellowship—at least on thiscampus.”So Old Man Sheridan started wayback with the Holy Roman Empireand wormed his way up through thefilth of these cliques in a spitting re¬cital of closed group free love whichthe history books don’t mention.“You’re a bunch of nuts withoutkernels,” he shouted. “They ain’tteachin’ you the truth here. Yougotta come to the Knowledge Box!”There was much more but there’snot enough space to tell it, and any¬way the Debate Union made a re¬turn engagement for about two weeksfrom now in the Reynolds club the¬atre.Everyone agreed that it ought toi sons, are only "passports to economic i be interesting. hasn’t even been anyone trying toimitate Mae West.”So if you can wTiistle like a bird,talk like President Roosevelt, or clickyour teeth like a tap dancer youshould waste no time in seeeing Mr.Cook in the Reynold’s club room Devery afternoon.

Freshmen, fraternity men, and the restof the campus will feel, think, and hearmuch of rushing during the comingweek. Most of the rushing, we are con¬fident, will be highly ethical. Some of it,we are constarined to admit, will prob¬ably be illegal. For a discussion of il¬legal rushing, from the viewpoint of thefreshmen, we ask you to turn to theEditorial Page.—Ed.Columbia Proposesto Adopt ChicagoHumanities CourseProposals have been made to thefaculty of Columbia University forthe organiaztion of a general coursein Humanities, similar to that of¬fered in this University, to supple¬ment the already existing surveycourses in sciences and social studies.Although the course will cover thesame subjects of study as the Chi¬cago survey, it will •be divided into atwo-yeaV schedule, the second part ofwhich will not be compulsory if thestudent wishes to enter a specializedfield of study , in the humanisticbranches. This course will also re¬place the English course which is atpresent required of all students.If the proposed plan is adopted, asit possibly will be, the curricula forfreshmen and sophomores at Colum¬bia will include three survey coursesof which the surveys of social studiesand humanities will be required, andthe course in sciences will be offeredas an alternative leading to special¬ized work in science.Hold Interviews forBlackfriars Positions past a specified period at one house.Said one spokesman “Let’s nothave fifty fellows hanging aroundwhen we ask the freshman if hewants to come. Take him into aroom with one member from eachfraternity, and see if he wants toleave.” ’Campus ContactsThe Council was informed thatLeon P. Smith, Assistant Dean ofStudents, would construe any longconversation between a Greek and arushee as evidence of rushing, ifsuch were reported. Casual campuscontacts during the period are per-missable, but Shallenberger warnedagainst sitting with freshmen in theCoffee shop, or any campus meet¬ing places. All undue contacts shouldbe avoided, he said.Phone calls to freshmen may bemade after 12 noon today, he said.An instance wherein a house show¬ed a rushee the financial report ofa rival organization was cited andcondemned.“Any freshman can look up thefinancial reports in the Dean’s of¬fice,” said Shallenberger.“We’re all liable to get prettytired and touchy in the last few daysof this week,” said one member ofthe Council, “but if we can remem¬ber that everyone’s that way we willbe able to take it easier.”Name Committeesfor First AnnualBarristers^ BallInterviews for .sophomore positionson the Blackfriar’s managerial staffwill be continued in Room A, Rey¬nolds club, today at 3:30.

Today a majority of the freshman menenter a period which in a sense can prove cru¬cial in determining their future careers at theUniversity.This period, intensive rushing week, is con¬ducted under a fraternity-adopted and ap¬proved code of rushing rules. Rushing is de¬fined as “any contact between a member ofa fraternity, whether an active or an alumnus,and a freshman, which is used in anw way bythe fraternity man for the purpose of influenc¬ing the freshman in favor of joining the saidfraternity.” Rushing, in this sense, is legalduring rushing week only at the fraternityhouses at times when a rushing affair is sched¬uled. Rushing at any other times or places isillegal. Nor may a freshman legally give anyfunction to which other freshmen are invitedfor the purpose of influencing these freshmento join a specific fraternity. Casual associa¬tions on the campus between fraternity menand freshmen, however, if not used for rushingpurposes, are perfectly legal.At the beginning of rushing week each yearit is the pious hope of the Interfraternity Com¬mittee, the Dean of Students’ Office, and allobservers interested in the welfare of the fra¬ternity system as a whole that rushing be car¬ried on in strict accordance with the code ofrules. Inasmuch as these rules were voluntarilyproposed and framed by the fraternity menthemselves, strict compliance with themshould be a point of honor among fraternities.But if the freshmen were properly aware ofthe provisions of the rules and of their signifi¬cance, fraternity men would soon learn thatviolations were not even good rushing.A house which goes out of its way to makecontacts with freshmen which constitute aThe ABD’sRussia and the Asiatic MindThe fundamental point was that when thingswere unsettled, conflict settled them and gave theAsiatic mind what the Asiatic mind requires, name¬ly, a clearly defined line to follow and an absoluteruler to define it. In this conflict victory went tothe side which deserved it most. . .that is, by beingstrongest and most fit. Stalin deserved his victory(over Trotsky) because he was the strongest, andbecause his policies were most fitted to the Russiancharacter and folkways in that they established Asi¬atic absolutism and put the interests of Russian -So¬cialism before those of international Socialism.Walter Dvranty, breach of the rushing rules is not doing somerely because it has greater interest thanother houses in those particular men. A housewhich evidences its friendliness by secretlymeeting freshman at illegal spots, rushingthem after hours, taking them out and enter¬taining them is not merely demonstrating whata fine bunch of fellows its members are. Thoseindividuals would not necessarily make betterfraternity brothers than the members of ahouse which does not stoop to illegal practices.In the first place, the offending house is break¬ing an agreement it has made with the otherfraternities of the campus. The fact that itdoes so because it believes, correctly or er¬roneously, that other houses are also break¬ing the rules is no justification for its own ac¬tion. But more important, a house which thusrushes illegally is doing nothing more thanadmitting a serious element of weakness in itsown makeup—its inability to stand up on itsmerits alone in fair competition with otherfraternities.Without any qualifications, we can say thatthis should be the freshmen’s reaction to anyinstances of illegal rushing that they encounter.We ask them to reread the rushing code (itcan be found in both the Fraternity Bookletand the Student Handbook) before they al¬low their opinions concerning various fraterni¬ties to crystallize. We ask them, morever, tointerpret the acts of fraternities during thecoming week in the light of those rushing rules.—J.A.K.The Travelling BazaarBy LAURA BERGQUIST Lettersto the Editor that program to call themselves pureabused pacifists and the writera . . .!Social Science ’37.To at least be able to show our name to the rela¬tives, we dedicate this foul and fearsome bazaar.Which begins with the sad and sorry tale of TheRemaining Freshman on the staff. His was thesaci'ed task of collecting the Big Ad of the day froma State Street mogul—it was indeed an impressivethought. Furthermore, being a young and earnestsoul with visions of the waiting presses, he imme¬diately dashed furiously to the nearest phone booth,a huge envelope underarm.“I got it,” he announced triumphantly to CharlieHoyt who was breathlessly hanging on the otherend of the line.“Open it and read it to me,” gasps Charlie.“Hahahaha,” read the horror stricken lad, “thereAIN’T no ad today.”Which goes to prove that even State Street Mo¬guls cherish as vile ideas of humor as Bazaarwriters.. “Gossip always g^ts ’em,” confides Winchell,“make it simple, foul and anonymous.”Thus, Harriet Nelson had a fish. The fish it died,Harriet she cried, and Diantha Warfel wrote theobituary which rips along as chanted by the Hutch¬inson twins—Requiem we sing to the fishHe met his end in a dish—His piscatorial digestionWas affected by congestionOf the H20 in which he loved to swish.To Nels he came to stayOn her nineteenth birthdayAnd though you hardly would expect itShe consistently neglected (him)And so he therefore passed away.“At least it rimes,” commented Max Freedman,erstwhile poet, philosopher and critic.And from the files of unlovely, unwanted Maroonnotices penned by campus wags, we dig up thefollowing blurb—For TOQ—All homesick freshmen are cordiallyinvited by the Oriental Institute to see their Mum¬my.The typewriting suspiciously matched that of thebattered wreck in the Phoenix office—the humorwas a coincidence. iThe late, lamented Kay Griffith has now addedto her accomplishments—the returning of an AlphaDelt pin with finesse, the annexation of a WestPoint cadet—and the substitution of cooking les¬sons for Humanities.Which leaves one less competitor for the Capand Gown queenship.It’s lucky we’ve got brains here anyway,” re¬marked one dour individual contemplating the cam¬pus “beauties” situation. COMMUNIST ASUEditor,The Daily Maroon:You won’t dare publish this, butit does represent the views of from2 to 4,000 students; the writer hasbeen on campus ten years; and hadknown these facts half that longbefore Hearst blundered into head¬lines with some of them:After years of leaning backwardto “be fair” to the ASU crowd, itis good to see the Maroon notice anapparent inconsistency on the partof a group that pledges “Not to sup-jiort the Government of the UnitedStates in any wav”—and the nextday begs cash and volunteers forSpain.Yet there is no inconsistency. Inspite of its insistent denials, and theconvenient blindness of its dupes,the ASU is dominated by the Com¬munist elements among its membergroups. Its leadership and pro¬gram are those of its ‘Reddest’ af¬filiates. The ultimate aim of thesegroups is to prepare the UnitedStates for the “Proletarian Revolu-j tion,”I What is their campus progi-am?j Tk) join every gi'oup on |Campus,hornswoggltS unauthorized or min¬ority (Kent Chemical Society) en¬dorsements of the ASU’s “UnitedFront;” bore from within; convert,pervert, rule or ruin; (Libeal Club,Cosmos Club, etc.)—that is theCampus Policy of the ASU leaders.Their national program? Simplyto break down every defense of theUnited States; particularly the arm¬ed services; “Reduce Armaments”—“All War F’unds for Relief”—stopall training of civilians—“Downwith ROTC, C.MTC, etc.”If there be no armed regulars, notrained civilians, no influential pa¬triotic societies, then the “Revolu¬tion” may succeed—with the help ofa few Soviet tanks and bombers ifneed be. That is the avowed pur¬pose of the Communist party. It isthe program that the Communi.st-dominated ASU has hoaxed everymember group into supporting.They may get these endorsementsby the use of the names of CivilLiberty, Academic Freedom, Neu¬trality, Labor L’nionism, Interna¬tionalism, Peace, Religion, Democ¬racy, or any other catchword tohoodwink some group of short-sight¬ed enthusiasts into giving their be¬fuddled support to the real programof the ASU; trea.son and Red rev¬olution. It is perfectly consistentwith that program to swear non-sup¬port to the United States in peaceor war—and demand support forSpain or any other radical govern¬ment. It is further consistent with NO INCONSISTENCYEditor,The Daily Maroon:In all the discussions on the Amer¬ican Student Union in your columns,one thing is evident; there is a gen¬eral lack of understanding of themajor rallying point in the ASUprogram. This lack of understand¬ing shows itself in the labelling ofthe annual strike as a peace itrikerather than an anti-war strike. Thesignificance of the Oxford Pledgeand the anti-war strike can be madeclear by a brief examinations of thepledge. Those students who agreewith the pledge should ask them¬selves just what they would do ifa war started. In discussions at theanti-war round table and on thefloor of the recent ASU convention,a clear statement of the significanceof the strike \vas made: “The an¬nual student strike against war is apreparation of action to be takenby students and others if our gov¬ernment engages in an actual war.”However, the general burden ofthe argument put forward by theeditors of the Maroon is that thereis a contradiction between the Ox¬ford Pledge and the ASU stand insupport of the Spanish Government.This may he true. Nevertheless itmust be remembered that both the.sestands were adopted by the conven¬tion by overwhelming votes. If thereis a contradiction, it can be becauseof one of two things: 1. That theconvention adopted the stands with¬out thinking about them much; or2. That the convention failed to ex¬press its sentiment accurately. Thosewho were at the convention can tes¬tify that the first was not the case.Many hours were spent in heateddiscussion of the anti-war questionand the stand adopted was a thor¬oughly considered one. Therefore,the second alternative is the only re¬maining possibility.There can be no doubt that the.sentiment of the convention wasagainst war. But the fact that astand in support of the Spanish gov¬ernment in its civil war was adoptedshows that the convention wasagain.st a particular kind of war.The nature of the Spanish war isbroujjjht into the question by theeditorial in the Maroon of January)9th. The editorial states that theASU is being led to believe in an¬other “war to .save democracy.” TheMaroon is wrong. All of the ASUdoes not misunderstand the natureof the Spanish war; the forces op¬posed in this war are the capitalists on one side attempting through theestablishment of a Fascist dictator¬ship to continue the subjugation andexploitation of the workers of Spain-and, on the other side, the workerswho are fighting to free themselvesfrom their oppressors and exploiier.sIt is with the working clas.s of Spainthat the ASU expressed its .solidar¬ity. This is further confirmed bvthe stand of the ASU to cooperatewith the forces of labor in this coun¬try.We believe that this interpri ta-tion shows that the contradictionpointed out by the .Maroon is super¬ficial, and that if an attempt ismade to understand what the realsentiment of the ASU is, it can befound to he entirely consistent.George Reedy,President.

Sir Cedric Hardwickehere does a beautiful bit of undei’-playing—really negative playing—toIrene Browne’s bitter picture of afriendless woman who has alienatedher husband and her childr’en fr-onrher.

About the only place a cat and analligator can get together and thefur won’t fly is in a swing session.For the benefit of those who don’tknow what a swing sesion is, we willmake the following explanation: aswing session is a hot spot where thecats are in the groove and the alli¬gators with a look of utter disgustgrowling to themselves over the per¬version of one of man’s chief formsof art, entertainment or relaxation.There are two hot spots (palacesof swing music) that your writer hasvisited recently, namely, the ThreeDuces on 222 North State street andThe Platinum Lounge , Hotel Vin¬cennes, 36th and Vincennes ave. Af¬ter a visit to these two dens of tor¬rid tempos the pulse of that indi¬vidual was one of rapid irregularity;blood flowed through that person’#veins like the groaning of a slidetrombone accompanied by whirringwoodwinds , and syncopated .snares.The visitor wjas truly swing silly..At spot number one, the ThreeDuces, the gentleman who is the topof the swing is one Roy Eldridge, afive foot trumpet man w'ho can reachhigh “c” above high “c” on that in¬strument and still keep his equilib¬rium although the listener may not.Eldridge has been playing that hornfor a good many years and in our es¬timation will be playing it a goodmany more with the top-notch swingbands of his race. Eldridge ditched.school to barnstorm with four or fiveof his friends when he was of highschool age and he has been playing inbands of al kinds ever since. Whenasked who his ideal was in the worldof swing the famous wind-man ex¬claimed triumphantly without a mo¬ment’s hesitation, “The Duke.” Thisblack Beethoven of music that El¬dridge was referring to is Duke El¬lington, the famous Harlem composerand conductor who has set the pacefor swing men for years.Among the other favorites men¬tioned by Eldridge were Benny Good¬man, “Fats” Waller, with whom El¬dridge played at the Palace theaterin a recent engagement, Louis Arm¬strong, whom he called “the greatesttrumpet man alive today” and TeddyWilson, the great negro pianist whogot his start with Jimmy Noone, theother artist we are about to mention.Jimmy Noone is known to follow¬ers of swing (alligators) as well asto swing musicians (cats) as the fa¬ther of the jazz calrinet. Noone, achubby friendly Negro, was playingthe reed insti’ument when BennyGoodman was a pup, in fact he wasstroking the keys in King Victor’sband, the earliest of the hot orches¬tras and the band whose recordingsare now selling for up to ten dol¬lars. Noone is playing now with aband of young men who comprise thebest seven piece swing unit this writ¬er has ever heard. A feature of hisorchestra is a 22-year-old pianist whowas drafted from classical study to ajob with Jimmy. This young artistplays in the style of Teddy Wilson,the man on the Goodman trio records.Jimmy’s most famous composition ishis “Apex blues” which he wrotewhile starring at the famous ApexClub many years ago. His arrange¬ment of “Honey Suckle Rose” was thebest bit of jamming (improvisationswithout music) heard the evening wewereone of the gaping alligators. Thisorchestra and especially the youngpianist are sure to reach the topsin swing and they may be heardnightly over WIND. Department HeadsRevise ChemistryCourse, TextbooksWith the intention of giving thestudent more opportunity to do hiswork independently, the Chemis"trydepartment is revising the generalcourse in Chemistry for the nextyear. New editions are being printedof both the textbook. General Chem-I istry, by Dr. Hermann Schlesinger! and the laboratory manual writtenI by Dr. Link.The department is continually en¬deavoring to improve the course andthis is but another step in its pro¬gram. As explained by Dr. Schlesin¬ger, executive secretary of the Chem¬istry department, “the experimentalwork and laboratory instruction willbe improved so as to give the studentmore opportunity to work independ¬ently.“We shall try to have experimentsso that the person does not know inadvance the result of the experi¬ment. The student must apply theknowledge previously obtained to sug-I gest to himself the method of solving! the pi’oblem.”Other members of the Chemistryj staff are also busy this quarter. Thor-fin R. Hogness and Warren C. John¬son, associate professors of Chem¬istry, are preparing an edition of anew book on qualitative analysis.Frolic Theatre55th & ELLIS AVE.TODAY‘'Make Way For a Lady”withAnn Shirley - Herbert MarshallTHURS. & FRI.‘A Midsummer’s NightDream” SPAGHETTIA GENEROUS HELPING OFThe finest Italian spaghettiserved piping hot with a realmeat sauce, genuine Italianparmeson cheese, Frenchbread and butter.25cMORTON’S5487 Lake Park Ave.From Noon to MiWnijht CiK)k County I.eajtue of Women VoterspresentsHon.

Weatherelland Baird are the only Chicago menwith Big Ten experience. Beyer,Hayes, Guy, and Stein will make upthe balance of the team. All of theteam will compete in two or moreevents.Last year Chicago took secondplace in conference gymnastics, andin 1935 the Maroons were fourth.Before this Coach Hoffer’s musclemen had had a ten year champion¬ship streak, broken only by a defeatin 1930. They also held the cham¬pionship in 1914, 1917, 1920, and1921.The gym squad has a second meetlined up with George Williams Col¬lege for this Saturday night. Boththis meet and tonight’s events arein the nature of early season w'arm-ups before the start of Big Tencompetition. The first meet with aBig Ten school will be against Min¬nesota at Minneapolis on February6. Shortly after this the gymnastsmeet Illinois on February 12 andIowa on the 19 at Chicago. Feb¬ruary 27 there will be a return meetwith Illinois at Champaign. Theconference championship meet willtake place at Iowa City on March13.

The col¬leges throughout the country that en¬ter this meet hold their owm racesand telegraph the results to the oth¬er entrants. The final results are alsotelegraphed to the colleges by thejudges.Chicago placed third in the sec¬tional division of last year’s meet andsecond in the National, Northwesternplacing first in both. Margie Smithwas the star Tarpon swimmer, plac¬ing first in the 40-yard back stroke,the 40-yard breast stroke, and in the100-yard back stroke. She will alsocompete in this year’s meet. Coach Norgren was yesterday try- iing to make his team forget their |double defeat over the week-end and ^pointing them towards their engage- jment with the rampaging Illini at iChampaign Saturday.The future of the Maroons couldbe a lot darker had Michigan beenas succe.ssful as Northwestern in ac¬complishing a rout; but the Midwayquintets’ show of strength is forcingthe Wolves into an overtime periodshould serve to bolster the confid¬ence of the team to a certain degree.Speaking of confidence, inciden¬tally, like a bolt of lighting fromSomewhere it struck giant Paul.A.mundsen, and overnight he has be¬come one of the most feared menin the conference. He threw all hisconservative basketball playing tothe four winds, and decided thatperhaps a few attempts to makesome points wouldn’t harm the Ma¬roon cause. The completion of threeconsecutive hook shots amply re¬warded his decision, and more thana few’ people were surprised as hemade the last, a beauty from 25 feetout, to give the Chicago five a ten-second lead.Amundsen, 6 feet 5 inches tall. has been able to out-jump every cen¬ter he has met this year, includingNowak of Notre Dame, Etnire andHosier of Indiana, Nagode of North¬western, and even the tremendouslytall Gee of Michigan. Paul has beenan up and down player this seasonlooking very good certain nights andother nights returning to his lastseason performaces.Among his best games was theone with Notre Dame, when Paul was undoubtedly outplayingAmerican Nowak.
