Aented by William C. Kratz, '24E.
bratz was te pianist for the Union
pera orchestra and his long experi-

(By Sidney B. Coates)
A mighty wind over dense forests;
the crash of waves on a frozen coast;
the sparkle of a southern 'sea; the
mysticism of a strange creed; the joy
of weird, fantastic dances; the tale of
an oriental bard; an atmosphere en-
veloping all - Russia; and the music
of that country full of portent reflects
the land of its birth, as Ossip Gabri-
lowitsch and his orchestra so ably
showed last night in Hill auditorium.
Opened by Overtu-e
Glinka's overture to "Russian et
Ludmilla" began the program. It wad,
played with majesty, uniform in inter-
pretation of the solid harmonies so,
characteristic of the father of Rus-

sian music. It was classic music of
a sort not usually looked for, and in
the whole of last night's program was
faintly suggestive of what was to
Ossip Gabrilowitsch and his orches-
tra -- there is no other way to de-
scribe or account for the rendering
given Rachmaninoff's Second Concer-
to for piano and orchestra in C min-
or, opus 18, which followed the work
of Glinka. It was in three move-
ments: the moderato, in which Ossip
Gabrilo Witsch merged himself in the
mighty instrument with which he
played, becoming a part of a grand
whole; the adagio sostenuto, in which
with unique tenderness the upright
artist brought out subdued sorrow,
joy and content from his piano before
the sound screen of the orchestra, and
last, the allegro scherzando, with Mr.
Gabrilowitsch now a part of his or-
chestral whole and again sounding
forth brilliantly. He was master of
hWs instrument, of the orchestra and
of his audience.
Strange Combinations
Last came the "Scheherazadf" suite
of Rimsky-Korsakoff, with its sug-
gested 'story, 'the orchestra bringing
fantastic thoughts from the strange
instrumental combinations. Yet the
work was not distinctly narrative;
but, like the story of the Princess
Scheherazade telling' tales to her lord,
it wound the stories into a final whole,
held together by the princess theme
introduced by Ilya Schkolnik, first

New Order of Events Scheduled

(By Associated Press)
Washington, Jan. 23.-Sweeping dis-
claim of any design against the ter-
ritorial integrity of Russia, coupled
with promises to withdraw the Jap-
anese troops in eastern Siberia as
soon as orderly conditions are re-
stored, was presented to the confer-
ence Far East committee today by
the Japanese delegation and was re-
ceived with a general show of satis-
faction by the representatives of the
principal powers.
Formal discussion of the policy was
postponed until tomorrow, but there
was no indication tonight that any of
the "big, five" delegations would op-
pose acceptance of today's declaration
or seriously dispute the plan of con-
tinuing, for the present, the Japanese
occupation of Siberian soil.
The general=view was that the whole
S'berian problem, touched upon tod,'y
for the first time, soon wou'd be dis-
posed of on the basis of the Japanese
Misunderstanding, and in some cases,
misrepresentation causes The Daily
to announce the following practices.
for reporters, which have been and
are in effect:
No reporter from The Daily 'is per-
mitted to obtain interviews over the
'phone. The 'phone may be used to
make appointments, or to verify sim-
ple facts only. Asking elaborate or
involved questions is not permitted.
No notice of engagements will be
given attention unless they are sent
to the office, signed.
In general, it is added, The Daily,
does not send reporters to interview
students or faculty members or towns-
eople on trivial or ridiculous ques-
tions. Occasionally it seems esential
to refute a rumor :which is becoming
current. In such instances the ques-
tions may appear somewhat unusual,
but these instances are relatively few.
Reporters are instructed to give
their names to the person interviewed.
It is urged that any failure to live
up to these practices be reported to
The Daily.

Opinion of Business Men, Faculty and
Students Is Against Going
Too Fast on Project
Caution, is the warning that under-
lies opinions concerning the proposed
co-operative store on the campus, as
expressed by business men, faculty
and students, in interviews with Daily
reporters yesterday. Practically all
who expressed their views agreed that
the success of such an enterprise de-
pended on efficient management.
Members of the committee of the
University Forum investigating the
advisability of the proposed , store,
when approached last night, ref ised
:o comment, reserving their opinions
until further developments take pace.
"Campus Must Need It"
"The first , essential of such a
store," said Prof. C. E. Griffin, of the
economics department, "is a real need
for it. Merely because a private con-
cqrn is making a profit in a town
does not prove that a co-operative
store will be successful. Such a store
is only another business venture. In
order to secure such efficiency, a com-
petent manager must be secured, who
will, because of his ability, demand a
salary that will almost approximate
the margin of profit made in a private
Students interviewed -all expressed
approval of the plan, citing as prece-
dents successful stores in the Eastern
and Western schools. "Before any
scheme is finally evolved a competent
investigator should be sent to other
universities, particular'y in the East,"
said John W. Kelly, '24L, managing
editor of the Gargoyle.
"Successful in Middle West"
James G. Frey, '22, managing editor
of the Michiganensian, voiced caution
in the selection of the store's person-
nel. "Many co-operative stores have
been attempted in towns of the Mid-
dle West, and it is always conclusively
shown that, their success depends
wholly on the efficient management.
Without it the plan will be a failure."
George Wafir, of Wahr's book stores,
recalled the fact that there have been
three previous cooperative stores on
the campus, all of which have failed.
"I had stores in both Urbana and
Madison," stated Guy Woolfolk, "and
they were located very near the co-
operative stores in both places. Neith-
er of these co-operative stores made a
marked success. What they lacked
was an expert manager and a suf-
ciently large stock."
"May Lower Prices"
Professor Griffin stated also that a
co-operative store, starting up in the
face of healthful competition, may
have the effect of bringing down pric-
es. He continued, "The co-operative
store as a student enterprise is a
good venture in that .it brings the
students together in a common activ-
ty, but before beginning it there
should be a well-defined need for it
.All men whose applications for
tickets for the J-Hop have been ac-
cepted and who were unable to call
at the Union at the time designated
on their acceptances will have an-
other chance to purchase their tick-
ets, according to R. D. Gibson, '23,
chairman of . the ticket committee.
From 12:30 to 5:30 o'clock this aft-
ernoon the Hop committee will be at
the information desk in the Union
lobby and the tickets may be secured

at this time. This is positively the
last chance to secure tickets and the
accepted applications of all those who
fail to get their tickets at this time
will be void., The remaining tickets
will be distributed according to pref-'
The general committee for the Hop
will meet at 3:30 o'clock today at
Spedding's studio to have its picture
taken for the Michiganensian. Imme-
diately following there will be a busi-
ness meeting of the committee at 4
o'clock in the Union. 4
