Union DebatesStanford OverNBC NetworkThe National Broadcasting Compa¬ny announced last night that the De¬bate Union will hold a transconti¬nental discussion with Stanford Uni¬versity over the entire NBC nationalnetwork some afternoon late in Jan¬uary. It will be on the topic, “TheHigher Learning in America,” andwill consist of formal speeches byeach side follow’ed by an informaldiscussion.Each school will be represented bytwo men, the Chicago team being asyet unselected. Through the use ofreversible switches in the two studiosthe Chicagoans and Stanfordites willbe able to hear each other and to an¬swer back immediately. To the audi¬ence it will appear as if the speakersare in the same studio.George Probst, President of theDebate Union, gives credit to theUniversity Broadcasting Council fortheir help in securing the program.He mentioned that while this discus¬sion wth Stanford will be over theNBC network, the Bull Session sched¬uled by the Debate Union will beheard through the facilities of therival Columbia Broadcasting System.The “Bull Session” represents a newdevelopment in radio technique andwas first used over the air sometime ago by the Chicago debaters.Ickes DeclinesTo Run for MayorOf ChicagoSecretary of the Interior HaroldIckes will not run as a candidate formayor of Chicago.Secretary Ickes, a graduate of theUniversity some 40 years ago, dis¬closed today in Washington that hewould heed the President’s plea tostay in the cabinet and added that hethought he would be more help to theNew Deal in the post he now holds.He had been requested by Chicagocivic and labor organizations to enterthe Democratic mayoralty primaryand has been deliberating the ques¬tion for more than six weeks. Hestated that he felt very much compli¬mented by these requests but ex¬pressed the thought that “a liberalmovement in Chicago should look forits leadership to Chicago rather thanWashington.”Pledging NoticesChi Psi announces the pledging ofCharles A.

Many per¬sonalities represent many schools ofthought, and there is no deliberateattempt at regimentation. There aresurrealists such as Oscar Tarcov,Isaac Rosenfeld, and Winston Ash¬ley, leftist political poets such asEdouard Roditi and Mascha Rosen¬thal, and, quoting President Roditi,“A few who still write sonnets!”—said with a faint but unmistakableair of contempt.Without doubt the Poetry Club is“modern.” Rhyme is definitely out¬moded and iambic pentameter is stale.Certainly there is no room in theirranks for the unsophisticated youthwho writes pastoral poetry in com¬plicated metrical patterns comespringtime. Should he stray into theHarriet Monroe Library some Tues¬day evening one of two things canhappen to him. He can be so crushedby appallingly frank criticism that Comes from New^ Yorkto Bartlett Gym with“Danceable Swing.”The Washington Prom Committeetoday made official the selection ofJimmie Lunceford to play at the PromFebruary 21. Lunceford, one of thenation’s top ranking dance orches¬tras, will be the biggest attractionthe Prom has been able to offer sincethe securing of Benny Goodman in1936.Not as well known in the MiddleWest, Lunceford is one of the mostpopular bands in the South and theWest Coast, and in the opinion ofNew York City critics outranks bothGoodman and the great Duke Elling¬ton, long considered the absolute topsin swing bands.Likes Saner SwingA master showman, Lunceford hasa reputation for producing the wack¬iest jam sessions on any stage, butamong musicians he and his men areknown for their versatility and tech¬nical proficiency. Jimmie himself sayshe prefers to play the more rhythmic,completely danceable kind of swingto the noisier type demanded by stageand swing concert work.With four top-notch arrangers intheir midst, Lunceford’s men canhandle anything from the hottest tothe sweetest, and make it come outwith a new and distinctive twist. Out¬standing among the band’s soloistsare Sy Oliver, one of the greatestliving trumpeters, who also singsand has a hand in most of the ar¬ranging, saxophonists Willie Smithand Joe Thomas, and Jimmie Craw¬ford, one of the steadiest percussionmen in captivity.Hold Dance in BartlettWith the signing of Lunceford, theCommittee also announced the defi¬nite selection of Bartlett Gym as theplace. Bartlett has one of the fewfloors large enough to comfortablyaccommodate an attendance as largeas Lunceford’s name will draw, and itis conveniently located for most Uni¬versity students. By this decision, theCommittee takes upon itself the prob¬lem of decoration, but last year’s ex¬perience shows that this can besolved, and by eliminating rental feesit is possible to engage a top priceband without increasing prices.Name New AssistantPublicity DirectorHarry Shubart, a graduate of theUniversity of Colo»*ado, has recentlybeen appointed Assistant PublicityDirector. He was formerly city editorof the Detroit Times, and managingeditor of the Advertising Age, a busi¬ness publication in the advertisingfield. Shubart was also a ranking ath¬lete, being all-conference baseballplayer, and holder of the bantam¬weight boxing title in the RockyMountain Conference in 1928.he will depart in haste vowing neverto return, or, if he is made of sternerstuff, he will stay and be converted.Have Poems PublishedThere are valid reasons for tryingthe latter for Poetry Club poetry getspublished. Last year six of its mem¬bers, Clarence Millspaugh, StephenStepanchev, Thomas Howells, Ed¬ouard Rooiti, David Sachs and DavidDaiches, succeeded in crashing Poet¬ry Magazine. In addition, their meet¬ings have been attended by GeorgeDillon, editor of Poetry Magazine,Professor Boynton, Dean Faust andPaul Goodman.The total result is an atmosphereespecially conducive to flowering ofpoetic talent. Their meeting place,the Harriet Monroe Library, has oneof the most complete collections ofmodern poetry in the country.

Thereare rare exceptions, such asMetcalf’s quick willingness togive back Bartlett facilities tothe students, and Mort’s readysponsorship of late hours at theCoffee Shop.But two months after theirremoval was proposed, the re¬strictive rulings on campus pub¬licity are still in effect, await¬ing a Dean’s committee decisionwhich should be a matter ofminutes. Two months after thecomplaint was first registeredthe International House StudentCouncil has not yet given a fairhearing to the case of the ex¬clusion of Titus and Benson.And despite a slightly lighten¬ed schedule, for 1939, the Uni¬versity’s football policy has inno degree changed Abolition ofthe present form of commercialintercollegiate play seems tooadvanced a step for the athleticdepartment to consider.Next quarter classes in theSocial Sciences will again bearbitrarily dismissed for areading period without a con¬sideration of whether the coursedemands call for extra lecturesand discussions or for extrareading time. And long yearswill elapse before students inactivities, realizing that theyare devoting too much time tothem, insist that menial androutine jobs be paid work, andthat the time-consuming ad¬ministrative Jobs be delegatedto College students.Out of all the usual happen¬ings of a calm quarter, how¬ever, there are three trendswhich point to hope of futureadvances. First of these is anew line in campus social ac¬tivities, a growth of informalityand campus-wide participationthat started with the C-bookdances and took a turn for thebetter with plans for the IdaNoyes party next quarter. It isonly a step from this to thepoint where all interested cam¬pus organizations will be calledin to draw up plans for a co-or¬dinated social program, theideal of a federated committee.The second is the revival of stu¬dent interest in programswhich extend into the worldoutside the University, as bestexemplified by the formation ofthe strong and hard-workingRefugee Aid and War Relief'v Committee. The third is the\.new strength of the campus co¬-operative movement, throughwhich students unite to ease the:^| cost of a college career.These are three good founda- Today on theQuadranglesFRIDAYIda Noyes Coundl Xmas tea, IdaNoyes library and lounge, 3:30 to5:30.Christian Youth League meeting,Ida Noyes Hall, Room A, 5 to 6:30.Philosophy Club meeting.

Toomey referred to thestudents as “disciples of Karl Marx”and commented on "the overflowingcoffers of this richly endowed Uni¬versity.” He mentioned how Harvardstudents took part in riotous per¬formances, insulted the womanhoodof the city, desecrated the very flagof our country, and shamefullymolested and mistreated little chil¬dren.Advocate Holds I*lebisciteThis week the Harvard Advocatestaged a plebiscite —with ballotsprinted in red.

DECEMBER 16. 1938Phi KappaPsiBy JOHN STEVENSWriting about Phi Kappa Psi intho Maroon office is about as safe forme as it is for a German Jew topersonally criticize Adolf Hitler. Thetruth of this statement cannot be ap¬preciated fully by anyone Vrho has notbeen inside the office. They literallyoverrun the place. The chairman ofthe Board of Control, one of the busi-ness managers, two other men onthe business staff, an editorial as¬sociate, and three reporters are allPhi Psi’s.Their main activity is the DailyMaroon, but they have many menworking in other activities. The sen¬iors include two Owl and Serpents, aStudent Marshal, the president, sec-retarv-treasurer, and co-chairman ofthe Political Union, the Prior ofPlackfriars, the President of the Rey¬nolds Club Council, and a member ofthe Social Committee. Other activemen in the house are the President ofSkull and Crescent, a cheerleader,four Chapel Union members, a mem-her of the Debate Union, three Black-friars including the Business man¬ager, one on the Student PublicityBoard, two on the Cap and Gown,and tho Chairman of the WashingtonProm Committee. Reynolds Club and Ida NoyesSponsor Twelfth Night Celebration Page ThreeIn tunics and tights they marchinto the hall, dragging the raggedChristmas tree behind them. Whowill know these thin-shanked pages,these social stalwarts, members ofthe Reynolds Club Council, as theyplay their faithful parts in theTwelfth Night celebration and openparty at Ida Noyes on January 6.Twelve nights after Christmas, sixnights after New Year’s Eve. In theymarch—Social Committee chairmanBill Webbe before and the Christmaspine behind. Twelfth night is a me¬dieval custom and the Ida NoyesCouncil plans to have their celebra¬tion in the best of tradition. Dr.Charles Gilkey, taking the torchfrom bearer Webbe, will apply it tothe Christmas greens in the libraryfireplace, a Madrigal choir will sing,and all the University will join inthe chorus. Pages will stand next tothe fire to keep warm.Medievalism Stops HereMedievalism stops at this point.All of Ida Noyes Hall will be openin the first no-date, all-campus par¬ty of the year. There will be a splashparty in the pool, a mixer in thegym, bowling in the basement, bil¬liards, bridge and ping-pong up¬stairs.During the dance intermission.Name Judges forBlackfriars BooksAlthough they are less successfulill athletics than in campus affairs,the is represented on severalteams. Four on the football team,four track men, one on the tennissquad, one out for water polo, onefencer, and one golfer comprise theI’hi Psi athletic roster.The brothers are not excellent stu¬dents. Last year they ranked eleventhand this year, according to scholar¬ship chairman Harry Cornelius, theaverage is almost exactly the same aslast year. Cornelius also claims thatthey have study rules which are"fairly strictly enforced.” Howeverl^mmett Deadman said that they hadtried study rules but they had provedineffective so they were abolished.Evidently “fairly strictly” isn’t verystrict. Of course this same situationIS undoubtedly the usual thing in fra¬ternity houses.Even though their study rules arenegligible in effect, the Phi Psi’shave a program to encourage study.The contains a library whichhas been regularly used since its in¬stallation. The bookcases and some ofthe books in this library were donatedby barrister Clarence Darrow. In thechaider room the averages of all theloot hers are posted, to encourageadded effort.*00The house, in addition to its library,ha.s much to recommend it. It wasbuilt in 1922 especially for a frater¬nity house, and consequently is oneof the best houses on campus. Theactives rent it from the alumni, andcontrary to rumor are not requiredto sign any sort of note to help payoff the mortgage.Twenty-three of the 36 Phi Psi’slive in the and pay about $59u month. Men not living in the housepay an average of $25 a month forlunches, dues, and social assessments.Because their dues are only $6 in-‘‘tead of the $10 that the actives pay,the three pledges pay only about $20per month. The initiation fee is $76.Phi Psi is the only house on cam¬pus that has a house mother. Conse¬quently they always have a chaperonehandy and never have to registerfemale visitors. For this reason theyare able to throw frequent impromptupaities. They also have the usualnumber of planned social events in¬cluding two open parties, radiodances, a winter formal, and a springpai ty at Lake Geneva. Nels Fuqua, Percy Boynton, andHamilton Coleman will choose thebook for this year’s Blackfriars showfrom among the nine submitted ina comi)etition which closed December1.These men and some of the Boardof Superiors will meet at the tradi¬tional Judges Dinner, which will beheld this year on Saturday evening atthe Cliff Dwellers Club, to hear whichbook will be u.sed for this year’s show.The two judges, who have alreadyread the books, claim that they arethe finest crop of books which havebeen produced by the writers oncampus for many years.After the vacation, with the ap¬pointment of a junior manager incharge of music, the songs and lyricsfor the show will be obtained in timefor Blackfriars to go into’productionthe early part of next quarter.Rush Week—(Continued from page 1)shortly after pledging, was suggest¬ed for the consideration of the fra¬ternities. It would begin with an af¬ternoon meeting the Friday afterpledging at which a speaker woulddi.scuss problems facing the frater¬nity system and continue on throughSaturday much in the manner of aCampus Congress or a Model WorldConference.Poetry Club—In intramurals Phi Psi has been'successful.

DECEMBER 16, 1938Side GlancesAt I-M's^ m mBy ERNEST LEISERThe AD Phi’s forged into the in¬tramural lead yesterday by winningthe table tennis tourney from peren¬nial champs, Phi Sigs. According tothe intramural board, they were insecond place, ten points behind thePsi U’s Tuesday. Then the board dis¬covered an Alpha Delt billiard team,which incidentally has reached thesemi-finals, and this added ten pointssqueezed the Alpha Delts into a tiewith the Ps U’s. Now the table tennisupset and its fifteen point awardputs the Alpha Delts in undisputedpossession of the organization leadwith 165 points.* * «After scratching his head and leaf¬ing through his file cards, I-M Direc¬tor Wally Hebert came forth with theindividual point winners for theAutumn Quarter. He made an espe¬cial point of informing the reporterthat a nice, shiny trophy awaited thehigh-scorer for the intramural year.First in line for that award atChristmas time is Attorney JosephAndalman, of the University of Chi¬cago Bar Association, who leads hisnearest opponent by a healthy 55points. Lawyer Andalman gained hisplace by playing on the champ Bar¬rister squad, winning the 40-yardevent and placing second in diving inI-M swim competition, and placingsecond in the horseshoe tournament.Besides which Joe is a good billiardplayer, studies law sporadically, isthe first independent to lead in I-Mstandings for generations.* * *Several I-M enthusiasts have quer¬ied as to how points are awarded inorganization competition. It’s all ex¬plained carefully on page 27 of thelittle handbook. Physical Educationfor Men, put out by the athletic office.But since no one ever reads Univer¬sity catalogues, and besides Hebertsays he only has a few more of thehandbooks, the system of scoring forclass ‘T” sports, touchball, basket¬ball, and softball is herein printed forthe edification of all.The main award, 50 points, is givenan organization for entrance in thesport. The winners of each league get10 more points, and the runners-upare awarded 5. Then the fraternitychamps and the independent-dormwinners are given an additional 10points, and runners-up are given fivemore counters. Finally, the top team,the uncontested University championin the sport is awarded 15 points.This means that the Barristers got85 points for winning the touchballtitle.There are three other classes ofsports, and wrestling, in which anorganization must compete in threeweights to get points. These areawarded points on the same basis, butall the minor sports—requiring few¬er men—earn less points for the lead¬ing lights.« * *Everyone seems to be turningthumbs down on the Varsity-Barris¬ter touchball thriller. The Varsitydoesn’t like the idea, for which youcan’t much blame them. They haveeverything to lose, and nothing* togain. According to I-M expert He¬bert, the game wouldn’t be especiallygood, not even in a class with theDeke-Bar Association or Alpha Delt-Psi U contests, and would be entirelyunfair to the football lettermen.He disagrees with the football menwho think that the Varsity wouldwin after a week’s practice, but whothink that the game is an unneces¬sary one, and would create more badfeeling than anything else.And to top it all off, it seems thatthe Barristers do not want to play theMaroons, and that Mr. Irving Feigeswas not representing Bar Associa¬tion when he approved of the game.iVlpha Delts WinPing-Pong TourneyThe winner of the. fiaternity ping-pong tournament was decided yester¬day noon in the Reynolds Club as theAlpha Delt team took both singlesmatches while dropping the doublesto the Phi Sig outfit. RepresentingAlpha Delta Phi in singles, Tully andKrietenstein defeated respectivelyCohen and Hirschberg of Phi SigmaDelta in straight games.The Alpha Delta doubles combina¬tion of Herschel and Nohl were over¬come by the Phi Sig duo of Norianand Glickman.

Both have won threegames from each other in the lastten years. Chicago, however, has wonthe most recent trio of contests.Armour will prove a threat to Ma¬roon hopes, as Herb Sher, outstand¬ing gniai'd, whose services haven’tbeen available in Armour’s earlygames, joins the Hawks.

High ReturnsTo Sunny GymStudents who want to be given achance to use Bartlett Gym after¬noons from 3:30-5:00 will be givenan opportunity to show their demandthe first week of January, T. N. Met¬calf, director of athletics, announcedyesterday that U. High intramuralswill be cancelled in Sunny gym dur¬ing that week and that their basket¬ball teams will practice there thattime.Metcalf feels that fhe turnout ofstudents this first week will be fair¬ly representative of the use thecourts w’ould get the rest of the yearif U, High were not practicing inthe gym. He has also arranged tohave the floor open two orthree times a week for the rest ofthe quarter except for the last w’eekin January and the second w'eek inFebruary.The first trial period was onlypossible because intramurals will notbe underway the first week. If thereis sufficient demand nothing can bedone about moving U. High out nextquarter, but the matter will be takeninto consideration, and there willprobably be action taKen next year.High School QuintetsPlay in FieldhouseComplete pairings for the Univer¬sity of Chicago’s annual prep basket¬ball tournament, which will be heldduring the holiday w'eek in the Mid¬way Fieldhouse, were announced yes¬terday by Nelson Norgren, basketballcoach at the University.Thirty-two city high schools arescheduled to participate in the tour¬nament, which will be held Dec. 27,28, 29, 30, and Jan. 1.Second round play-off^ are sched¬uled for Thursday (Dec. 29), quar¬ter finals for Friday (Dec. 30), andsemi-finals for Saturday (Dec. 31).The championship game will beplayed Monday afternoon (Jan. 2) at4 p. m. Goal DustBy BOB REYNOLDSWell, Doc, talk about de-emphasiz¬ing sports, look at Ohio State. Thefellas down at Columbus take bas¬ketball so seriously they have clippedtheir hair to the bone as a symbol of“their cooperation and unity.’’ (Note:last four words taken from a pressrelease).And that will practically cinch theBig Ten for them too. For you mustunderstand that along High Street theDowntown Coaches Association, thattheir troup of hearties has just every¬thing it takes, physically speaking, tocop the crown. Now with their cra-niums exposed in a tacitly expressedblood bond of brotherhood (Note:official bulletin from the DowntownCoaches Association says so, so itmust be true) nothing can swervethem from irresistible march towardsthe promised land.Doc, old man, to say this pains memore than it will to have you hearit, but the Bucks have just opened anew million dollar edifice in tribute tothe Great God of sport. This, also isan inciting factor of much conse¬quence, because isn’t it natural thatthe brave bearers of the Crimson andGrey will play a brand of ball thatis tremendously inspired, given, as itwere, added impetus, by their fine newhome the Ohio Colesium. The bond is¬sue on the place is due this year(Note: bulletin from the Alumni As¬sociation.). Now that they have the champion¬ship stowed away in their little glasstrophy case the rest of the leaguecan settle down to a spirited fight forsecond place. In the interim, the am¬bitious Ohio chaps will trek out tothe west coast and engage variousand sundry teams that feel equal tothe Scarlet Scourges with the billiardball heads and new gym.With Captain Jimmy Hull, lastyear’s high point man, and Dick Bak¬er playing the lead roles up front,and two veterans, Boughman andLynch policing the territory immedi¬ately beneath those brand new bas¬kets, Coach Harold Olsen fears noother five men alive, unless they befive men from Purdue. And whocares about Purdue anyway—all theydo is make boilers.There is some trouble around thecenter spot—nothing serious, you un¬derstand, but until regular Tom Swancan climb down from the injury listtwo sophomores must carry on.Optimism in such quantities, un¬natural around any major athleticplant, grows from the excellent Cagers Meet FourOpponents BeforeWinter QuarterAfter the game with Armour Techtonight in the Fieldhouse the Marooncagers will play four games beforethe beginning of the Winter Quarter.Oberlin will be met at the Field-house on Monday night and the Chi¬cago quintet will then attempt togain revenge on Marquette whenthey meet them two nights later onthe Fieldhouse court.While most students are enjoyingtheir vacation, the basketball teamwill continue to practice, meetingLoyola away from home on Decem¬ber 29.Yale, the only eastern team to bemet by Chicago this year will be thevisiting team January 2 at the Field-house.
