Food and clothing may bedeposited at the Maroon office.The Maroon campaign consolidatesprevious efforts to raise relief fundslaunched in the women’s dormitoriesand in various of the fraternityhouses..■\t a late hour last night reportsindicated not only that Ohio water¬shed floods are at present the mostsevere since white settlement of thevalley, but also that peak watershave not been reached in many loca¬tions.ASU StudentCo-op CelebratesSuccessful ServiceCelebrating three weeks of unin¬terrupted service, the Ellis StudentCooperative at 5558 Ellis, built bythe American Student Union, electedofficers and a Board of Trustees forthe quarter.Original founder John Brady markswps unanimously elected presidentand Dena Polacheck vice-presidentof the Cooperative. Rosemary Liittfor secretary and Robert Wicks fortreasurer completed the slate of of¬ficers. The remaining three mem-lH*rs-at-large on the Hfoard ofTrustees are Ennis Coale, BernardMoritz and Barbara Allee.“Fourteen meals for only $3.66and the best food to be had any¬where” so President John Marksepitomized the Cooperative’s achiev-ments. Declaring that the “fine co¬operative sirit shown by its 55 mem¬bers insures the success, past andpresent, of the cooperative,” Marksalso commented on the 25 cent re¬duction of this week's food cost, andpromised a similar reduction in thenear future if the recruiting into thecooperative continues at the samepace, emphasizing the policy of thecooperative to pass all savings on toits members.Tl.e general public is also-invitedto sample the coop’s meals at thespecial low price 'of thirty cents. Ad¬vance reservations are requested.I-F Committee StatementMeeting late last night the In-terfratemity Committee issued thefollowing statement:“Cognizant of the practical dif¬ficulties attending the official re¬porting of a rushing violation, thecommittee desires to offer itself asarbitrators with regard to infrac¬tions, which any fraternity desiresto remedy unofficially. No officialaction will be taken unless the vio¬lation is a flagrant one or unlessthe fraternity cares to make thereport official.” An AppealWith the worst flood disaster in the history of the nation caus¬ing intense suffering in the Ohio and Mississippi river valleys, theneed for funds to provide food and supplies for relief of the flood-stricken areas is acute. With the permission of the co-sponsors, theStudent Settlement Board and the Washington Prom Committee,The Daily Maroon will turn over all proceeds of the Swing ConcertFriday afternoon in Mandel Hall to the Red Cross flood relief fund.In addition, campus headquarters for the collection of con¬tributions from the students and faculty of the University will beset up in the Maroon office, room 15, Lexington Hall. Numerousboxes and bottles in which donations can be dropped are beingplaced around the quadrangles. Contributions can also be left atthe Information Desk in the Bursar’s Office and at InternationalHouse.A generous response from the University community can helprelieve the distress of some of the hundreds of thousands of fam¬ilies which are homeless as a result of the flood.Board of Control.^^Swing Here to Stay,” Says Norvo;Comments on Popular Bands, Singers“Sweet music? Never ask a swingmusician that question. The onlypolite answer is that we hate it.”In these words. Red Norvo, recog¬nized as one of the best of the“cats” by Rhythm clubs all overthe country, who will be on campusFriday at 3:30 for the Swing Ses¬sion, disposes of the music of thoseformer college favorites, Duchin and ILombardo. Norvo believes that jswing, now enjoying its greatest re-1vival since it started among the Iblack boys of the Mississippi valleyabout thirty years ago, is finallyhere to stay.Norvo, now appearing at theBlackhawk Restaurant with his wife,Mildred Bailey, and his 12 pieceband, says that he was practicallybrought up on swing music. Fromhis birthplace in Beardstown, Illi¬nois, it wasn’t far to the river ex¬cursion boats, where some of thebest swing musicians of their dayentertained during the summer.Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong startedout on a Mississippi river-boat, andin his book, “Swing That Music,” hesays that he was in no mean com¬pany.Played with WhitemanAttracting attention with his spe-Belgian Pro ArteString QuartettePresents ConcertsIn one of its first appearancesin the United States, the BelgianPro Arte string quartette of Bel¬gium gave its opening concert lastnight at International House.Ranking among the outstandingchamber music ensembles of theworld, the group is presenting aseries of six concerts which will in¬clude the complete cycles of Beeth¬oven quartettes.January 26, 30, 31 and February1, 2 and 4 are the dates whichhave been set for the concerts, ar¬ranged through the courtesy of Mrs.Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, notedpatroness of music.Special invitations to membersand friends of the University havealready been issued, and a limitednumber are left and may be secur¬ed through the House.

The fact that Goodman hasa new singer, Frances Hunt, maysurprise many campus fans of Hel¬en Ward, but even more surprisingis Norvo’s statement that all throughher appearance in Chicago last yearHelen was married to a WOR an¬nouncer, (“and a nice guy, too,”according to Red.)

All spectatorsmust be in their seats at 9:15,15 minutes before the program isbroadcast over WMAQ and theRed Network of NBC. There isno charge for tickets.By ADELE ROSEAlton Cooke, who came to Chicagoto direct the show, reports that thefear of the editors of The Daily Ma¬roon that he was a victim of the cam¬pus “crime wave” because no onecould find him all week-end was en¬tirely unnecessary. It was all due tohis playing the detective himself, totrack down either the words or musicor both of the comic song hit of“Merger for Millions,” the Black-friars show of 1934.The only thing that Ed Sibley, ab¬bot of Blackfriars, knew about thesong was that it was called “It’sLousy But it’s Commercial,” that itwas wonderful and should by allmeans be on the program, and that ithad been sung by a trio. Shift Date to 19thTicket Sale Begins in Cir¬cle on Friday with Choos¬ing of Beauties.Dick Jergens and his famous, coastto coast 14-piece orchestra will playfor the Washington Prom, the Promcommittee announced last night.The date has been changed backto Friday, February 19, in responseto many petitions of students whowished to go home over the weekend. The signing of Jergens’ popular ^band is one of the important stepsthe GWP committee is taking to in¬sure that the dance be one of thegrandest and most spectacular everstaged, and a fitting climax to thewinter social season.Pick 15 BeautiesSenior men and women’s honorarysocieties will choose 15 campus beau-ties, to start the ticket sale in theCircle on Friday, January 29. PegTillinghast, one of the women on theGWP committee, will head these girlsin ticket sales.Jergens’ band is a young and up-and-coming organization. The orches¬tra started on the west coast whereit quickly became a sensation. Theplayers are considered by leadingcritics of bands, as one of the coun¬try’s most versatile and rhythmic or¬chestras. At the present time Jer-gen is enjoying a long run at theGold Coast room of the Drake Hotel,.Tracking MusicThe score of the show revealed notrace of the song, and since it hadbeen sung by a trio there was no or¬chestration. Long and patient searchrevealed the name of one of thetrio members, who said that he hadgiven the music to another of thethree singers, who had moved toNew York complete with the song.The only-known trio member didknow an interesting bit of informa¬tion, however. The writer of themusic, said he, was in London.Finally the writer of the lyrics,tracked down after a long search, re¬vealed that he knew all the words ofthe song, but wasn’t such a very goodsinger, and could only hum underspecial stress. A hastily summonedphysician picked up the melody fromthe timid hummings, and wrote itdown for Marvin Jacobs and Ray So-derlind to sing on the Friday eve¬ning broadcast.Relaxing in his Reynolds Club of¬fice after the exertions of the chase,Cooke admits that only one thingbothers him. He wonders if theyhave the real tune after all, or ahummed jumble of Beethoven’s“Fifth Symphony and “It Ain’t Gon¬na Rain No More.”Name Candidatesfor BWO OfficeLists of nominations and candi¬dates for the offices of all the wom¬ens’ organizations at the Universitywill be presented to the Board ofWomens’ Organizations at a meetingtoday at 4:30 in the Alumnae roomof Ida Noyes Hall, according to anannouncement by Katherine Pitt¬man, chairman of the Board.Officers proposed for such groupsas the YWCA, the Ida Noyes Coun¬cil, and the Federation of Univer¬sity women will be reviewed by theBoard and all duplications ironedout.This will be the most importantmeeting of the year with the Boardexercising its function of coordinat¬ing womens’ organizations on cam¬pus. Formerly, the position of chair¬man of the BWO was held by jun¬iors, but last year a change wasmade and Katherine Pittman, a sen¬ior, was made chairman for 1936-37. I where he is rapidly becoming pop-i ular with the Chicago’s younger set.His band is recognized on the radioby its use of chimes, during numbers.The orchestra will play from 10 to2.Cutter Conceals FactsHenry Cutter, chairman of the So¬cial Committee, claims that thoughthe Gold Room of the Congress hasbeen announced as the place, that anentire -section of one floor has beenrented for drinks and refreshments,and that Dick Jergens’ orchestra hasbeen announced to play, are stillmore startling announcements yet tocome. Among those things to be an¬nounced soon will be the leaders ofthe 33rd annual Prom, the campusbeauties to sell the tickets, and theprice of the affair.Chicago EntranceRequirements GiveLittle DifficultyRoy W. Bixler, Director of Ad--missions, in commenting on the rela--tive difficulty of admission to theUniversity of Chicago, states thatapproximately 80 per cent of those-j who send in applications are aef-I mitted. He points out, however, thatj from 35 to 45 per cent of thoseI admitted do not actually enter theI Freshman class. This is explainedby the fact that more than one-! third of those applying for admis-I sion also compete for scholarships;if the scholarship is not awarded,the student very often does not en¬ter the University. The regular sizeof the enterng class is 750, althoughthe capacity of the University issomewhat higher.The entrance requirements of thisUniversity are really no higher thanthose of many eastern universities,^Bixler commented. Graduate stu¬dents are admitted automatically onthe basis of their degrees. A test,however, administered by Dr. LouisL. Thurstone of the University, tosome 240 colleges revealed that thefreshmen in this University rankedabout third psychologically. He feelsthat the new Leaders. Organizationmay raise the standard somewhat,mainly by bringing about a grreaternumber of applications for admis¬sion. ■ "Page Two THE DAILY MARCX)N, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1937iatl^ iiarnanFOUNDED IN 1901Member Associated Collegiate PressThe Daily Marcx)n is the ofTicial student newspaper of theUniversity of Chicafto. published mornings except Saturday, Sun¬day, and Monday during the Autumn.

But the identifi¬cation of private in corporate ends is in itselfbeneficial to the individual; it provides himwith an effective outlet for his emotions of loy¬alty and devotion. The fascination of patriot¬ism lies in this fact.That a fraternity does arouse a strongerloyalty than any other campus organization isproven by the manner in which alumni rallyto the aid of a weak-kneed chapter; it is a re¬crudescence of the old loyalty that makesthem buy mortgages in contradiction to allthe laws of sound finance, and enjoy the do¬ing thereof. As a focus for the outlet of thesentiments associated with college days aftergraduation, a fraternity is obviously unparal¬leled.But as a focus for emotional attachmentduring college it is equally valuable and rival¬led only by the vague loyalty to Alma Materas a whole.The role of a fraternity as a center of theloyalty of its members has not gone withoutquestion. The absence of any real set ofprinciples, of any cause beyond the perpetua¬tion and prosperity of the group itself, meansthat the loyalties of the fraternity membersare being grafted on a stock barren of anyimportance in the world outside the campuswalls. The alumnus who has never found anycause greater than the fraternity of his collegedays to which *^o devote himself must be famil¬iar to almost every chapter, and constitutes ajust butt of criticism and derison. It is thislack of fundamental principles which has ledto the accusation, emanating particularly fromthe radical camp, that fraternity men are in¬tellectual infants, filling their minds and emo¬tions with affairs of the utmost triviality duringtheir college days.Although as a generalization this accusationprobably holds true for fraternity men nomore than for any other group of comparablesize on the campus, the point does have signi¬ficance for our discussions. For him whosetemper or training prevents him from adopt¬ing any of the current systems of ideas, wheth¬er Marxist, Thomistic, Aristotelian, or prag¬matist, which agitate the campus today, andaround which almost religious loyalty can bebuilt, a neutral fraternity is the only possiblegroup upon which he may focus his emotionalattachment. Since lack of an object uponwhich to bestow one’s loyalty is a source of^discomfort just as much as is lack of social sup¬ port, the fraternity system performs a useful ifpassive function in providing pegs upon whichone may hang one’s loyalty. Further, the moreintellectual loyalties are by no means excludedfrom the members of a fraternity; one may bea Yipsel and a Greek, and find the one nohindrance to the other.The third and last justification for the fra¬ternity system which we will consider is thevalue of fraternal association in developingpersonality. Year after year, freshmen come tothe University with the intellectual and socialsides of their personalities unformed to vary¬ing degrees. In the midst of a fraternity, thenascent personality will be shaped along lineswhich will be at least acceptable to the major¬ity of the people it will meet in later life, thusmaking a very real contribution to future hap¬piness.The unceasing contacts of fraternity lifepromote the development of poise in com¬pany, and the provision of constant practice inconversation is of very great value to a per¬son inclined to shyness. Moreover, the asso¬ciations of a fraternity can and do bend theindividual in one or another direction, depend¬ing on the main interest of the members, butwithout stereotyping or stiffing individual in¬terests. It is this variation from house to housethat makes the selection of a fraternity suchan important step in the career of any fresh¬man, and the personality of the membersshould be the primary factor in his choice.This analysis, if correct, shows that there isa very definite place for fraternities on a cam¬pus such as this. The part played by frater¬nities in carrying on the social program of theUniversity and the interest of fraternity menin extra-cuiricular activities are merely theoutward manifestations of their role. Butmore important to the inner satisfaction of theindividual is the fraternity conceived of as asocial support for its members, a worthy ob¬ject of loyalty and active interest, and a shap¬er of well-rounded, socially acceptable person¬alities.—W. C. M.The Travelling BazaarBy P. H. D.FOR THE HONOR OF THE HOUSEWell, we decides that we wants the mug for oldChi Yi and so at the next function we puts theclampers on him and drags him upstairs. Every¬thing goes all right and when we Inally stop talkingabout what we don’t want to talk about, we get downto business.He, being non-plussed, by such a punch-linegoes into a huddle with himself and comes up withthe fact that it’s all narrowed down to seven or eighthouses. Then we asks him how old Chi Yi standsand he says pretty low on account of how the otherhouses have told him some damn filthy lies about uswhile we are all the time aboveboard.Finally he tells us he has it about figured out.The ATO’s get plenty of free publicity on accountof how they got such a popular name-plate. Ofcourse he reads in The Traveling Bazaar about howhe might have to hunt it up so we gets him off them.Of course the Dekes have got some nice guys butI hear they got athlete’s armpits and are alwaysstinking about not having a show. On the otherhand, he stammers, I might go Beta and get an oc¬casional glimmer of “Hutch” when he comes over forlunch. Well, we points out to him that he ain’t nointellectual but he still don’t come around to Chi Yi.Next he starts talking Phi Psi, but we show howmuch it costs to live at a hotel and how anyway hisbest friend lives on the third floor and if he had tolive on the second they might never see each other.Then he goes down to the Chi Psis but when wepoints out that their bar is ruining his pal, MikeHanley’s business he decides they ain’t the righttype for a sober drinker like him.When he starts to talk Alpha Delt we immediatelyput him out with a blow about why pledge themwhen you can live the dorms anyway and besidesthat what if they fly through the roof? Then he sortof swings over to Phi Kappa Sigma but they forgotand beat the devil out of him at pingpong the othernight so he figures they ain’t much on how to treata guest.The Psi Us look pretty good to him until we showthat he don’t want no “Three Years in a CellarGang.” This frightens him and he starts talkingabout the Zetas Betes. But then we lights him upabout how they don’t talk to each other and so hegets on the Pi Lambda Phis. After we point outhow he’s not cut out for a nomadic life sort of leansPhi Sig. This we stop by singing the theme songabout “East Side.,..West Side....”The Phi Delts he liked pretty well, but he didn’tlike the idea of putting on a membership campaignwith the National Red Cross.By this time the smoke is as thick as Thursdaynight at Hanley’s.

Theoriginal six-man outfit was an imme¬diate sensation, and played at the“Hickory House,” Jack Dempsey’sRestaurant, a Park Avenue hotel, andthe “Commodore” before coming toChicago.“The Park Avenue engagementwas the only one we didn’t like,”says Red. “The management wasalways asking us to play tangoesand the customers kept requesting“Night and Day.” Any swing bandprefers to play for a gang of kids,but dinner hour on Park Avenuewas just a wave of dowagers. Wewere glad to get away.Worried About Yale“The only time I was worriedabout playing at a college was atthe Yale Prom last spring. Theother band was Eddie Duchin, andI was sure that everyone would just iignore us and that the only way wecould get any attention would be toblow Duchin out of the hall. Butthey got so excited about swing thatthey just sat on the floor and list¬ened.“The greatest swing session Iever played in was at the ImperialTheater in New York last year. Allof the great swing musicians whowere anywhere near New York play¬ed, and even Louis Armstrong waslimited to one encore. But Mildredhad to take three to satisfy the audi¬ence.

BOOKSTORE5802 Ellis AvenueCHICAGO, ILLINOISrTHE DAILY MAROON, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1937 Page ThreeProfessor Bond jWrites New Book |Ifor French Seriesies Pauvres Gens, the fourth book {in his series of elementary French’readers, will go on sale this week,Professor Otto F. Bond, chairmanof the College French Department,disclosed recently. It is a collectionof simlified versions of stories bypopular French authors includingMaupas.sant’s Mon Oncle Jules, Baz¬in’s Le Quntrieme Pauvre, Daudet’sie Secret dc Maitre Cornille, andBordeuz’s Le Violonenx.The whole series marks an entirelynow approach to the problem oflearning to read in a foreign lan¬guage. Based on the belief that thek'st way of learning a vocabulary isby associating words with ideas ina context, the first booklet can beroail by anyone who has only a verylimited vocabulary. The books aregraded, so that the completion ofthe fourth one brings the reader’svocabulary above the thousand-wordmark.Although the first set of this serieswill be completed some time in Aprilwhen the fifth booklet, L’Attaquc duMoulioei, now in press, is put on sale,the entire series is expected to in¬clude at least ten such readers. Thebooklets all form a part of theHeath-Chicago French Series, whichi.s under the general editorship ofProfes.sor Bond.The Heath-Chicago Language Ser¬ies is itself an innovation in the fieldof language publications. Some yearsago. when the French and GermanDepartments were combined in thedepartment of Modern Languages,the language books were publishedby the University Press. Books byvarious authors, notably the Eddygroup at the State University ofIowa, were edited by Professor Bondand published in this manner. Later,the rights to the language serieswere turned over to D. C. Heath and('ompany, and the Heath-ChicagoLanguage Series was originated. TheiHKiks are printed under an ingeni¬ous combination of the seal of theUniversity of Chicago Press and theHeath ribbon. Qreek U^etters* * *By CODY PFANSTIEHLf isiting StudentsTake Advantageof Institute ToursBy ARETA KELBLEAnyone who goes to or from af¬ternoon classes in the vicinity ofEckhart, Mandel, or Oriental Insti¬tute could hardly fail to notice thatseveral times a week on the east ap¬proach to the circle and the streetadjacent is an assemblage of bussestilled with school children. Probablynot a few observers have asked thereason for their presence.Ever since its opening in 1931,the Oriental Institute has been con¬ducting supervised tours of the mu¬seum for school children upon ad¬vance request. The response to theservice has been amazingly largeand widespread. Groups, thoughmainly from Illinois, have travelledfrom as far as Milwaukee, Wiscon¬sin and Paw Paw, Michigan. At¬tendance this year has been espe¬cially large; in fact, figures showthat 45 groups, some of them in¬cluding as many as 300 students,have visited the museum since theopening of school last fall.As great as the attendance is thebenefit the children derive from thetours. Representing high school,grammar schools, church groups,and even colleges, the majority ofthe boys and girls are students ofancient history. Guides provided bythe Oriental Institute explain theexhibits and their histories, furnish¬ing the students with a visual educa¬tion to supplement their text books. jCX ERE’S what to do tomorrow:Go to Cobb Hall, room 308A, between 9 and 12 in the morning. Thereyou will receive a slip of paper upon which you list your fraternity choices,in order of preference. If you have no second choice, forget about it.Be sure to sign your name. That’s important.Then hand the paper to the clerk, whistle a gay tune, and forget aboutit because it’s out of your hands. You just go somewhere for lunch wherethe management won’t mind hearing your fingers drumming on the table.By noon each fraternity will have handed in a list of the fellows itw'ants, in order of how much it wants them. Most houses list many morepeople than they hope to get, just in case someone swings around at the lastminute. lllThen your choice and the fraternity lists are matched under the eye ofthe Dean of Students and the Interfraternity Committee, and by three orfour o’clock the classes are determined.Each fraternity is notified, and when the Brothers can talk coherentlyagain they’ll call you up and invite you over to take the preliminary oathsAfter dinner everybody goes out to a movie or some place, and it’ll dawn onyou that Life in a College Fraterniy Has Started.By the time you read this most of the freshmen will have decided wherethey’re going, and told that house so. Against the rules and all that, buteveryone does it. So if you’ve told a house, and they’ve asked you, therewon’t be any hitch in the formal bidding.If you’re still not sure be sure to tell them, by tonight, that you MIGHTjoin so they’ll have your name on their list tomorrow.* * *By this time everyone’s darn tired of rushing, and there’s very littleconversational fencing that marks the early days of the game. Despite theI-F Committee the Greeks are floiding the dorms and keeping some of youpeople out after hours.WATCH OUT FOR THIS.A hot, heavy, last minute illegal rush means they’re worried about get¬ting a class, and have been driven to shoot the works with nothing to lose.In the excitement they’ll probably lie about anything—and some fraternitymen, under high pressure, are the best liars in the world.If you’re on the fence between two houses and everything balances up(prospective class, finances, national and local standing, type of fellows)and you’re torn by the two wild horses—Flip a coin.You can figure that there must be a lot of appeal for you in both houses,or you wouldn’t be in the fix. If you really want to join a fraternityyou’ll enter well into either.And any fraternity on this campus has something to offer, no matterwhat anyone says.* * *A FELLOW called in yesterday, saying he’d been bid a couple of housesbut not the one he and his friends wanted to go. He wanted to knowwhat he could do about it.The writer told him to hotbox his favorite fraternity. Call them upright away and out and out tell them he wants to come over. The chancesare they’ll welcome him. Then, perhaps not actually asking to join, heshould show interest in the house. Ask about prices, tell them he likes theboys. They’ll take the hint.If he’s sure he’s shown his interest, he’s played his card and can onlywait. They may not bid him then and there. Most houses have to meetand 100 per cent on all rushees. But if he’s wanted his name will beon their list tomorrow. llpeace councilannouncesround tableonNEUTRAILTYsecond subject inseries of fivediscussionsonPEACEthurs. feb. 4 It’ll all be over soon.Good luck!
