Approx¬imately 180 of these are expected topledge at the end of the period.Bob Shallenberger, president ofthe Interfraternity Committee, yes¬terday brought out the fact that therule with regard to a freshman’s stay¬ing through two functions on the.same day, decided on Tuesday andannounced in yesterday’s Maroon,applies only to the last day of rush¬ing. On other days for a freshmanto stay over the specified period fora function will constitute illegalrushing.As the rushing programs got un¬der way yesterday. Assistant Dean ofStudents Leon P. Smith remarked,“The only feasible plan for preserva¬tion of the rushing code is for eachfraternity to remember its chapterhonor. The chapter honor is not theaverage of the fellows in the fra¬ternity, but that of the lowest in¬dividual in the chapter. If this lat¬ter person chooses to violate the code,the chapter must bear the ^conse¬quences.”He also emphasized that if therushing code is to be effective, thefraternities must honor as individualswhat they have created as a system. Phoenix Caters to Larger Audience;Contains Humor^ Satire^ CriticismBy ELROY D. GOLDINGCardinal principle to every good ' ern science to attain the end of man,journalist is that a publication to be happiness.successful must cater to all interestsof its audience. In the January issueof Phoenix, its Board of Control ap¬pears to have at last realized thatthere is no typical Phoenix reader;that to assure wide circulation abalance between low humor, individ¬ual .satire, and the intellectual auraof Aristotelianism is necessary to sella publication which does not have theoriginal boost of purveying news.Longest and most substantial farein the new issue is the distinguishedanswer to the question “Can We BeSocially Intelligent?” given by Pro*fessor Max Schoen, head of the de¬partment of Psychology at CarnegieTech. Bringing wide background inthe classics, and the sciences andfaith in humanity to bear on theprobleitis of contemporary society,Professor Schoen concludes that wecan be socially intelligent if we con¬sciously employ the advances of mod-PoHee Escort, Air Tour AwaitCap and Gown Beauty Queen From Society to Burle*queAs evidence of Phoenix’s new ver¬satility we take what was to us theother outstanding article in the Feb¬ruary issue, “The Best in PhoneNumbers,” by Harvey Karlen.

Second NewsreelPresents Scenesof Campus LifeBy EDWARD C. FRITZPunch and enthusiasm are all thatthe Campus Newsreel lacks beforebecoming an excellent production.The second edition, shown for thefirst time yesterday, displaying somegood photography and some alertnews coverage, but still lacked thejournalistic vigor necessary for anoutstanding newsreel.The Newsreel will be presentedagain today and tomorrow at 3:30and 4:15, and even without punch iti^ worth seeing. The pictures on theRedfield case, the InterfraternityBall, and the faculty comedy, “A Mi¬nor in Manners,” are worth the tencents cKarged, and there are goodsports shots and news events in addi¬tion. An interesting piece of workwas done in running part of the Illi¬nois football game upside down andbackwards.Add by the time of second present¬ation this afternoon, there will prob¬ably be an addition of some punchthrough a more carefully developedand more enthusiastic vocal accom¬paniment to the motion pictures .All in all, the second ‘edition ofthe newsreel compared with the firstedition in subject matter, and show¬ed improved photography. The maintrouble is it lacks punch, and untilit is crammed with simple, colorful,important action, it will continue tolack a certain amount of punch.When every event depicted is likethe Redfield case, and when there isno further use of dead material likethe Geiling expedition pictures, thenthe Campus Newsreel, as the firstcollege newsreel in the country, willhave proved itself a fully worthypioneer. press of Beauty, who will he crown¬ed at midnight in the Aragon Ball¬room, scene of the annual CharityBall.According to the Committee Incharge of the Ball at NorthwesternUniversity, a world-famous jeweledcrown, that of the Empress of Russiaand now held by the Field Museum,,will be used in the ceremony.

DiniockCompletes PoliticalScience TextbookBy REX HORTON“Modern Politics and Administra¬tion” is the title of a book on thestudy of the creative state recentlycompleted by Marshall E. Dimock,associate professor of Public Admin-tration. Originally scheduled forJanuary publication, the book willappear February 1 and will be thefirst volume in the “American Politi¬cal Science Series,” which is beingedited by Lindsay Rogers.Intended as a textbook for coursesin public administration and modernpolitics. Dimock’s work attempts tocorrect corr.tr.on overemphasis on poli¬tics and to stress equally politics,public administration, and politicaleconomy. The treatment is describ¬ed as functional and analytical. In¬stead of following the traditionalpattern with detailed descriptions offederal, .state, and local units in turn,it is concerned with problem and re¬sponse, cause and effect, wants andsatisfactions; with the why of gov¬ernmental functions, how well theyare performed, and where improve¬ments can be made.In the book. Professor Dimock hascombined functional analysis withconsideration of the most importantquestions of political theory andphilosophy. Three chapters are de¬voted entirely to theory, the ques¬tions under consideration being theends of the state and the reconcilia(Continued on page 3) Continuing its film revival serieswhich ran last quarter, the Univer¬sity Film Society next Tuesday be¬gins a series of seven additionalshowings of famous old Americanfilm epics.Opening with an all-Western pro¬gram which will include James Cruze’“The Covered Wagon” (with ErnestTorrence and J.

Instead of following inthe orthodox trend of most swing-sters, who do their “solid sending” onthe clarinet or the trumpet, Norvoswings on the xylophone. The bandwith which he first won fame hadseven members.Student InterestWidespread student interest in“jam sessions” at the popular pal¬aces of swing prompted the decisionto “send” swing to school. Accordingto James Bernard, advertising man¬ager of The Daily Maroon, “Theswing session should be a red-letterevent in the life of every alligatorand would-be cat at the University.The Daily Maroon is bringing RedNorvo and Mildred Bailey to the Uni¬versity to give the students the mostenjoyable afternoon that possiblycould be planned.”International HouseHolds Banquet toCelebrate MagazineTo celebrate the first publishingof the new “International Quarter¬ly,” International House is sponsor¬ing a formal dinner tonight for mem¬bers of the editorial staff, the Boardof Governors, and the Student Coun¬cil.Beginning at seven o’clock inRooms C, D, and E, the banquet willfirst formally present the new mag¬azine which has combined the talentsof three International Houses of 'Chi¬cago, New York, and Berkeley, Cali¬fornia.Among the honored guests of theevening are Dr. and Mrs. Robert M.Lovett and Mr. and Mrs. Ernest B.Price, of the editorial board, Mr.Walter Lichenstein, noted Chicagobanker, and Mr. Maurice K.

Asone of the 16 organizations now affiliated withthe council. The Daily Maroon, in lending itssupport to the campaign for new members,would like to clear up any possible misconcep¬tions concerning the nature of this body.The Peace Council is an independent committeecreated for the purpose of coordinating all ac¬tivities on the campus in the interests of peace.The one and only point in its platform is thatit is against war, and that it wishes throughintelligent study and discussion of the causesof war and the various “roads to peace” tostimulate greater interest in peace in the stu¬dent body. In line with this policy, it con¬ducts regular seminars and sponsors the an¬nual All-Campus Peace Conference, held eachspring. It is not, however, responsible for anystand taken by the Peace Conference. ThePeace Council itself takes no stand concerningeither the causes of war or the methods ofachieving peace. It in no way sponsors orsupports the annual Student Strike agauistWar.It is completely non-partisan in attitude. Itis not even against Fascism. Its present mem¬bers include all the women’s dormitories. Wigand Robe and the Bar Association, both LawSchool organizations, the Chapel Union, theASU, the Socialist Club, the Communist Club,Mortar Board, and the ATO fraternity. It isnot dominated by any one or any group of thesemembers. Its faculty sponsor is Dean Gilkey.Such an organization, devoted solely to dis-The ABC'sDemocracy in ManReally and by nature every man’s a unity, butyou’ve artificially transformed the unity into a trin¬ity. One clever man and two idiots—that's whatyou’ve made yourself. An admirable manipulator ofideas, linked with a person, who, so far as self-knowledge and feeling are concerned, is just a moron;and the pair of you asociated with a half-wittedbody. A body that’s hopelessly unaware of all it doesand feels, that has no accomplishments, that doesn’tknow how to use itself or anyone else. Two imbecilesand one intellectual. But man is a democracy, wherethe majority rules. You’ve got to do something aboutthat majority.AldouB Huxley,Eyeless ^in Gaza.kmmm ^ . \ cussion of the subject of peace, should appealto any group whose members are at all inter¬ested in a study of the means of preventingwar. There is hardly any doubt that this in¬cludes the entire campus. We urge everycampus organization, therefore, includingwomen’s clubs and fraternities, to send one ormore delegates to the Peace Council’s seminarthis afternoon.—J. A. K.To the ASU:Frequent has been the mention in the manyletters which The Daily Maroon has receivedfrom members of the ASU that the AmericanStudent Union stands primarily for the idealsof American democracy. 'We have beengreatly impressed by this statement, but havefailed to see this idea carried out in the plat¬form of the organization.Searching through the statements made inconvention and out by the Union we can findno mention of a planned program to promotecampaigns against many evils which can beeasily recognized in the political system as itexists today.An organization which claims to be as com¬prehensive in its program as the ASU shouldcover every phase of American life. Besidesactive support of peace and labor, we suggest,since the Union is a group for action, that itget behind a national program to advance:1. An extension of the civil service to in¬clude all non-policy forming employees of lo¬cal, state, and federal governments.2. The appointment rather than popular elec¬tion of judges.3. The consolidation of local governmentsto remove administrative waste.4. The adoption of the city-manager plan bycities over 100,000 in population.We believe that these four points are ad¬mirable objectives towards which a group suchas the American Student Union should work;but we know that it will never adopt plankscontaining them in their platform. They arenot proper goals for a group which must havea cause.To inspect what is meant by a cause, itmight be said in explanation that it is an emo¬tional rallying point for a group that believesit is highly rational and purely objective in itsviewpoint toward everything concerned.In short, we might say, in the words of oneprominent member of the ASU, that “theprogram lacks an appeal to the imagination.”—E. S. S.The Travelling BazaarAccording to the rumor in yesterday’s Maroon,Kay Griffin has given back her pin. Berry Berblin-ger wishes she would keep her men straight, and willwhoever got the pin please return it to him? Pos-sib e cause of the breakup came one day when shecalled the Alpha Delt house, thought she had Berry,and said “Hello, this is stupid.” Said the voice atthe other end} “Just a minute. I’ll call Berry.”♦ 4> *Freshmen, you will get a lot of valuable materialfor Political Science if you will observe carefullythe various rushing systems you may run into.Examples are—. 1. The house which parades all its big shotsbefore you. These football, basketball, baseballplayers and just generally big men are yourGODS, Or, by god they had better be. Youhave cringed before them for weeks. Finallyit is the last week. Suddenly a tribe of thembear down on you, you duck, they grab you,slap you on the back and slip you the glad tid¬ings—“They want you to be one of them.” Bythis time you are a complete wreck and in re¬lief you grab out wildly for the pin. God inperson has asked you to be one of his angels.2. This house got left out when they were pass¬ing out Gods. But that’s OK because theyare just a clean cut, friendly bunch of fellowsliving like one big happy family, and theythink you will fit in perfectly. Besides the duesare darn low.3. Then there is the bunch that is going to letyou in on the inside. Let you see how theyreally are. No hearty back slapping, no peptalks, no dirty rushing, no nothing. Look themover, they may be dumb, but you could prob¬ably stand out against such a background.4. Don’t overlook the boys who never say any¬thing mean about another house. Their con¬versation runs like this. “We make a point ofnever saying anything, etc. etc. (until you areconvinced), but did you hear about what hap¬pened to Smith at the I Phelta Thigh’s tenyears ago?. No? Well, I’m sorry I can’t tell•you, house rule you know, but check up on itfor yourself.” l oday V iDoQuadrangles Lettersto the EditorMEETINGSAnderton Society. Dinner, 6:30.Talk by the Rt. Rev.

' Second Largest College CoHevtion ofEarly Christian Documents in HarperBy MAXINEHoused in the Rare Book room ofHarper Library is the second largestcollection of early Christian docu¬ments to be found in any Universityin this country. Most proud of thiscollection is Edgar Johnson Good-speed, chairman of the departmentof New Testament and Early Chris¬tian Literature, who since 1895 hasbeen interested in bringing originalmanuscripts to the University forstudy and exhibition.The year 1895 marks the begin¬ning of this interest, because at thattime the nucleus, of the now ratherlarge collection of manuscripts wasbrought to the University by a pro¬fessor from Leipseig. This nucleusconsisted of two Greek New Testa¬ments, which dated about 1600. Butit was not until 1927, when touringEurope, that Dr. Goodspeed had achance to obtain more manuscriptsfor the University. At that time, ina small shop in Paris, he came acrossa Greek manuscript which contained,beside the New Testament, 85 minia-Broadcast VarsityShow from MandelHall Friday NightAn opportunity to see and hear aday at the information office in thebig coast-to-coast radio broadcast,just the way it is done in Radio City,New York, will be presented to stu¬dents and faculty of the Universityfor the first time, when Universityof Chicago Night goes on the airFriday evening, January 29, overNBC’s red network, direct from Man-del Hall.University of Chicago Night is oneof the series of weekly Pontiac Var¬sity Shows broadcast every Fridayevening at 9 ;30 from one of the greatuniversities of the country.Although the program materialwill be made up entirely of studentsand student organizations, the bestavailable professional directors havebeen sent here from New York byPontiac to put the show together andperfect the technique which a radioshow requires.There will be opportunities duringthe program for the audience to joinwith the glee club or the band insinging some of the favorite Maroonsongs.

Still, Dr. Good-speed was surprised to hear that thismanuscript, found only after yearsof inquiry concerning the where¬abouts of early Christian works, couldbe had only for the prohibitive priceof $25,000. This price, which at firstseemed exhorbitant, seems cheapcompared to later valuations. By theaid of Mrs. McCormick, to whose es¬tate the priceless book now belongs,the University was able to bring thisrelic of the Byzantine Empire to Chi¬cago. Although the University doesnot possess this manuscript, intensivestudies have been made of it by mem¬bers of the department.Because of the publicity that ac¬companied the purchase of this man¬uscript, later called Rockefeller-Mc-Cormack Edition of the New Testa¬ment, word came to the departmentof other Greek Manuscripts that werefor sale. One thousand dollars boughtfor the University what was knownto the underworld as the “Gangsters’Bible,” often used by them to swearoaths of allegiance. It was throughthe secretary of Colisimo’s Restaur¬ant that this Greek Bible of the lateninth century was obtained.At the present time, the collectionwhich the University owns consistsof 25 New Testament manuscripts,most of which are Greek. However,there is a ninth century Armenianwork, adjudged the oldest piece ofits kind in the world, and several Sy¬riac manuscripts.Phoenix(Continued from page 1)a sure writer’s pen, Karlen takesGypsy Rose Lee, “undisputed queenof the country’s strippers,” fromvaudeville at the age of six to Zieg-feld Follies at some thousands per.No admirer of the tongue-twisting,word-splitting school of humor whichrequires the reader to scan a sent¬ence three times before finding itdoesn’t make sense, after a firstreading we were left cold by mostof Harry Morrison’s satire “Ptarmi¬gan Talks Turkey.” We didn’t haveenergy to read it a second time, butwe gather there will be a Power-fulfuss when someone unravels Morri¬son’s misplaced modifiers.Some Parisians learned a whileback that philanthropists would sup¬port them if they painted theirdreams.

East ofEllis* * *By GEORGE FELSENTHAL* * *Interesting, indeed, is the grandpoliticking among certain membersof the freshman class. After severalyears of dormancy, an effort is beingmade to revive a Freshman ExecutiveCommittee.The idea of class committees wentout with the New Plan. Under theChicago system, a man is no longer aFreshman, a Sophomore, or a Senior.He may be a combination of two, orin many cases, he is in his “secondyear of study.” He goes as fast as hewants, and with the abolishment ofindividual course credits and the startof the comprehensive system, he can¬not truly be classified.What does the freshman class needa governing body for? With so muchfreedom at the University, the aver¬age freshman man or woman neitherneeds governing nor will he or shebe governed. The experiences of thefreshman orientation committee provethat all that all most of our Freshmenwant is to be left alone. It is notablealso, that not even the Sophomorescould govern the Freshmen. Yearsago the second men forced green capson the yearlings; now they can’t evenforce innocuous little buttons uponthem.It was easier, years ago, to organ¬ize the freshman class because, atthat time, fraternities pledged dur¬ing the first week of school. Natural¬ly, the stronger houses put their starpupils in class positions for the pres¬tige of holding those positions; onceelected, the class organization wouldproceed to calmly do nothing. Underthe present system, the fraternitieshave far smaller powers over thefreshmen, but it seems likely that theExecutive Committee elected thisweek will also do nothing.And what is there for such a com¬mittee to do? They can promotedances and mixers. Outside of that,there is no useful purpose for sucha group. As far as the mixers areconcerned, such activities were hand¬led very capably two years ago by theCollege Council, a group of first andsecond year men and women appoint¬ed by the Dean of Students office. Itwas a representative group from thewhole college and acted very success¬fully in promoting closer social rela¬tions in the college. It had the ad¬vantage of knitting freshman activ¬ities with upperclass ones; somethinga freshman council could never do.What, then, is the purpose of thepresent organizing? As far as we cansee, it is a means to an end for sev¬eral individuals in the freshman class.The end would seem to be “politicalpower” for a few ambitious membersof the class. It is understood thatthose members hope to accumulateenough strength to arbitrarily ruletheir class. In what fields they canwield this strength is somewhatvague.It is too bad that politics have toCLASSIHED ADSGirls to sell high grade importedperfume on comm, basis at attractiveprice.

Butit can be dismissed lightly with thethought that the fortunate ones elect¬ed will be leaders without any flock.Perhaps the experience would servethem well if they should ever wish todo promotional work for the leftistgroups.It might be timely to mention theforthcoming Senior class elections.There is a good purpose behind theSenior organization, because the mainpurpose of that group has been, inthe past, to foster a gift fund. Thisfund has lately been devoted to schol¬arships, a most worthy cause, andone that can well be continued.

V. Merrill and Alvar Her-manson informed yesterday. WithWalters in foil, two sophomores,Strauss and Corbett will represent thechamps. Irving Richardson, a sen¬ior, will assist Lemon in epee. Insaber, Ned Fritz, a junior, and EdGustafson, sophomore, are in line tocompete at present.The presence of three sophomoreson the team makes this year’s pros¬pects uncertain. However, Strauss,Corbett, and Gustafson have allshown great promise.Lemon has improved greatly sincehaving the best dual meet epee rec¬ord in the conference last year. Wal¬ters has also gained powers since hissterling performances last spring. Inhis new role as epee man, Richard¬son looks better than last year, andFritz has another year’s experiencebehind him.

There have been few menwho have been used in the startinglineup with regularity. Foremost ofthese is the sophomore flash fromThornton High, who has been burn¬ing up the floors with his amazingspeed. Paired with him has been TomNisbet. Boudreau’s teammate atThornton. These boys have playedbasketball together since grade schooland, according to reports present asclean a working duo as can be foundanywhere in the country.At center, has been Bob Reigels,who was Illinois’ second high scorerin the Big Ten last year and threat¬ens to place higher this season.Mills has had three men workingin at the guard positions. Wib Hen¬ ry who plays one of the positions isone of the best all-round athletes ina decade at Champaign, Wib willmost likely be assigned to tail Egge-meyer.

Coach E. W. [McGillivray plans to juggle the line-1up a little in order to get the bestresults. The w’ater polo team willalso see what can be done about stop-,ping Northwestern. fCo-captain Brown, if he is eligible,! will be sure to give a good accountof himself in the 60 and 100 yardfreestyle events, and to strengthenthe 400 yard relay team.

There areno restrictions on who may play, andgraduates, alumni, undergraduates,and University high school studentscan compete. The squad will soonbe divided into freshman and regularteams.
