Washington, Nov. 3-(By A.P.)-
The latest move to enlist America's
aid in solving the reparations puzzle,
which began so auspiciously, now has
come to a stage where even those
who sponsored it almost staunchly
are extremely uncertain of the out-
Like every other recent effort to
bring American influence to bear to
halt the war wounds of Europe, th6
new plan for an expert committee of
enquiry haE become entangled in the
delicately adjusted network of rela-
tionships between London and Paris,
and in such a manner that the Amer-
ican government cannot at the mo-
ment take any steps to extricate it.
There is still hope that in the end
a workable plan will emerge from
the almost hourly exchanges that ap-
pear to be passing between the Brit-
ish and French capitals, about which
American officials have but an incon-
clusive knowledge. Such advices as
reached the State department today
did nothing to encourage confidence
in a satisfactory outcome, however,
and news dispatches from abroad
likewise were accepted as adding lit-
tle to what had gone before.

AT TOMOROW NIGHT~
NOTED PIANIST WILL BE SOLOIST
AT SECOND CHORAL UNION
HAILED AS GREATEST
Aged Artist Making Farewell Tour
Of Country This
Vladimir de Pachmann, world fam-
ous pianist, will be the soloist at the
second of the regular Choral Union
concerts tomorrow night in Hill aud-
itorium. De Pachmann is called the
world's greatest exponent of Chopin,
and his program for tomorrow will be
entirely given over to Chopin num-
bers. The veteran pianist, now 75
years old, is making his farewell tour
of America this season. He comesI
now before a new generation of con-
cert-goers in this country, because for -
ten years he has not visited America,i
for no other reason than that his aud-
iences in England and Italy have been
unfailing and insistent in their de-
mands for his appearance.
He must, now, as he himself says,
"disclose to America the last word in
piano playing." The tale of his eccen-
tricities is long and amusing. Never
will he fail to tell his audiences the
complete story of his own worth.
What he has to say is in fact as in-
forming and a delightful' as is his
playing. Ann Arbor is looking for-
ward, with eagerness to his appear-
ance here, the more so because of I
the erratic reports which have been
broadcasted regarding his perform-;
ances. His 'recitalW in' this country
recently 'have attracted much atten-
tion among critics and music lovers,
as much because of his expressions
of self-admiration as because of the r
artistry of his playing.t
Hris program of Chopin compositions
will be made up of the following:
e I t
Nocturne, Op. 27, No. 1, C sharp
Ballade, No. 3, Op. 47, A fat major.a
Scherzo, No. 4, Op. 54, E major

A number of seats in the first rows,
of the main floor of the auditorium
are available for this concert. Since
these seats will be covered by a sup-
plementary stage at the time of the
Festival, they obviously could not be
sold as patron's tickets. Those hold-
ing undesirable seats in other portions
of the auditorium may exchange them
for individual concerts from this sec-
tion so long as the limited number
available remain. The concert will
begin promptly at 8 o'clock.

INSTRU:MENT GOT ON THREE
YEAR CONTRACT FROM FIRM
By Special Correspondent
Detroit, Nov. 3-Two thousand alum-
ni of the University of Michigan wit-
nessed a presentation of the grid bat-
tle at Iowa City yesterday afternoon
in the Detroit armory. A device man-
ufactured by the Grid-Graph Com-
pany, Columbus, 0., exactly similar to
the one used in Hill autitorium, was
used here. A representative of the
company accompanied the graph from
Columbus and supervised its opera-
The crowd, which assembled in the
spacious structure shortly before 3 o'-
clock and stayed until the last minute,
was full of enthusiasm and respond-
ed again and again to the calls for
cleers issued by their leader, J. J.
Collison, '17. Willie Heston, who was
one of a number of prominent alumni
present, came in for his share of
the applause, as did President Mathe-
son, of the Detroit Alumni association,
who arranged for the grid-graph pre-
MVr. vMatheson expressed regret to
the reporter that the necessity of sup-
ervising this work forced him to miss
his first football game in six years.
The grid-graph has been secured on
a three year contract and will be us-
ed again in the Armory to reproduce
the Wisconsin and Minnesota games

Will Play Here
Seymour Simons, '17E, who is di-
recting the orchestra which has been
playing at the Majestic theatre and
Gerald E. Hoag, manager of the the-
ater, are the originators of the latest
collection movement to send the band
to the Wisconsin game.
Yesterday at the afternoon per-
formance of his orchestra, in a space
between the coming of returns from
I the Iowa game, Simons made a short
speech, incorporated in an interest-
ing monologue, announcing that the
manager of the theater had offered
to double any amount the audience
was willing to contribute to send the
band to Wisconsin. Accordingly,
ushers "passed the bucket", and
$107.51 fell. Hoag is holding $215.02
until he can find the proper author-
ities to whom he can entrust it.
Hoag declares that the collection will
at least send the drum-major and a
clarinet or two.
