Irregular Bavarian Bands Threaten
Advance at Thuringian
Berlin, Nov. 5.-(By A. P.)-The
central government, aroused by the ap-
parently dangerous situation created
by the Bavarian nationalist separation
on the Bavarian Thuringian frontier
has ordered the dispatch of three Ba-
denese Reichswehr regiments to the
region. These troops will take up po-
sitions behind the Thuringian police
with orders to resist to the utmost any
attempts by the irregular Bavarian
bands to advance.
The government will also issue an
appeal to all republicans to be pre-
pared to defend the republic.
It is reported that Chancellor
Stresemann has been definitely in-
formed that a nationalist "putsch" has
been timed to begin on Thursday, the
fifth anniversary of the foundation of
the republic.

"Ah! So she isn't coming! Now we

"Ah, the Baldwin! C'est marvelleuse!
my piano is my wife. Je l'aime." He
adjusted the stool, moved the object of
his affection, sat at the piano, and'
deftly ran his fingers up and down the
keyboard. "I must get it adjusted, so
they won't laugh at me tonight. That
would be fatal!" And seating himself

"Oh! the light. How beautiful!-the

lightly up and down the keys.
"You know I arrived this morning

Then I had luncheon. You don't kave

More embraces! "I hate to leave you.
I wish you could come a ma salon, but

"Allons, vite! "--the manager again.
We thought Vladimir was going to kiss

"Vite!"-the manager succeeded this

Registrar Hall Announces Figures
For All Schools; Total
Increase 203



Eight thousand, nine hundred and
six students are on the campus of the
University at the present time, accord-
ing to the figures issued yesterday by
Registrar Arthur G. Hall. This rep-
resents an increase of 203 students
over the corresponding period last
The annual November count in the
registrar's office, the figures from
which are published as the enrollment
of the University in the annual gen-
eral tabulation of college enrollments,
also shows an increase in the granl
total enrollment of 349 students,
bringing the figure to 11,762.
Earlier predictions that the enroll-
ment would pass the 12,000 mark wers
changed by an unusuA1 decrease in the
number of extra-mural students tak-
ing work for college credit in the
School of Education. The registration
has decreased from 200 last year to 36
for the present semester. There is

One Senator, Seven Representatives
To Be Chosen In East and
Middle West
New York, Nov. 5.-(By A. P.)-
Those who watch the national politic-
al straws to see which way they bendI
in an off year election wind, probablyI
will get much satisfaction tomorrow.
First, there are only a few electionsI
for congress, and second, few issues
having a bearing on the next presi-
dential election involved.{
One new member of the United
States senate is to be elected in Ver-
mont. Porter H. Dale, republican, and
Hart H. Pollard, democrat, are candi-
dates for the position left vacant by
the death of Sen. Gillingham. His
term would have expired in 1927.
Seven new representatives are to be
elected to Congress, one in Vermont,
four in New York, one in Illinois, and
one in North Carolina. Little interest
has been shown in Illinois. Thomas
A. Doyle, democrat, will have slight
opposition, his republican opponent,
Lester Rodney, having withdrawn.

Washington, Nov. 5.-(By A. P.)-
Four decisions determining Ger-
man liability for American claims re-
suiting from the war, including those
growing out of the Lusitania torpe-
doing were announced today -by the
mixed claims commission.
While upholding broadly the Lusi-.
tania claims numbring 278, and ag-
gregating approximately $22,600,000,
the commission dismissed 3,190 claims
totaling $345,000,000 for the recovery
of insurance premiums paid by Am-
ericans for protection against war
General principles governing the as-
sessment of the American claims were
laid down by the commission. Three
of the decisions, including that upon
the Lusitania claim, were unanimous,
but in the other interpreting treaty
obligations Edwin B. Parker, umpire,
concurred with Chandler P. Anderson,
American commissioner over the dis-
sent of the German commissioner, Dr.
Wilhelm Wiesselbach.j
An important feature of the Lusi-
tania decision was the refusal of the
commission to express exemplary pu-
nitive damages. It held that such
damages were penal in their nature,
not compensative, and therefore un-
authorized by the treaty of Berlin.

Ambassador Jusserand " Discusses
Reparations Question
With Hughes
Washington, Nov. 5.-(By A. P.)-
Ambassador Jusserand, of France,
discussed the reparations questions
with Secretary Hughes for nearly twot
hours today. On leaving the state de-
partment the French envoy declinedI
to discuss the conference.1
The ambassador, who encountered a
large group of newspapermen as he
left Secretary Hughes' office, refused.
to say more than that his conversa-
tion with Mr. Hughes had been most
"interesting." He referred all inquir-
ies to the secretary. Mr. Hughes in
response to a request of the news-1
papermen that he see them sent out :
word that he had "nothing to say."

Detroit, Nov. 5.-Let the rich church
"adopt" an army chaplain, the same
as missionaries are "adopted," is the
plea of Capt. Andrew J. Patrick, chap-
lain in the Officers' Reserve Corps.'
Captain Patrick also suggests that
the clergy "warm up to the army
chaplains and give them their undivid-
ed support."
"The work of the army chaplains is
very difficult," Captain Patrick said,
"and in many ways very discouraging.1
There is a feeling on the part of the
chaplains that the clergy and church
are not doing what they could in mak-
ing the burden lighter for both the
enlisted men and the chaplains."
"Would it not be a splendid thing,"
he asked, "for some rich church to
adopt a chaplain as their best friend
and brother, just as we do a mission-
ary that goes to some foreign country?1
In this way the chaplain would always
be in touch with the church, and the
church with the chaplain. The latter'
could make reports to the church and
keep it informed as to what lie is do-
ing along the lines of spiritual, moral
and educational work for the men. In
this way there would come many valu-
able suggestions, both to the church,
and to the chaplain." .
Captain Patrick said army condi-
tions are much improved over past'
"Parents of the young men who en-
ter the army need no longer fear their
sons are going to the bad because they
have enlisted to serve their country,"
he said. "On the ther hand, many of
them are better cared for than the
average young man in civilian life."

Committeemen to Co-operate
"4,000" Club to Complete
Swimming Pool



A concentrated drive on the part of
all Union committeemen in co-opera-'
tion with the present members of the
"4,000 clue" to secure the 2,000 sig-
natures necessary to allow work to
begin on the Union swimming pool
will be launched next Tuesday. The
move was decided on at a joint meet-
ing of Union officials and "4,000 club"
officers yesterday.
Pledge cards distributed during the
last two weeks-by the "4,000 club"
number 1,200. Pledges will be con-
tinued on the new list according to
plans of the committee. All holders
of these cards which call for pay-!
ment of $5 between Nov. 1 and 7, will
be visited by a Union worker during
the next two days and" given the op-
portunity to change his pledge to meet
the new requirement.
Under the system originated by the
"4,000 club" each student was given
the pledge to sign with the under-
standing that he would pay the $5
called for if 4,000 pledges had been
sectired by Nov. 7 and if he were call-
ed upon between the times designated.
The mote on the part of the board of
governors of the Union requiring only
2,000 signers makes the changing ofr
the pledges of all signers necessary.
The committeemen will be sent to
those who have already signed the
pledges in an effort to have the pledg-
es changed to be effective under the
nw systm.
The change of the "4,000 club" to
the present number of 2,000 was made
possible at a meeting of the board of
governors of the Union held last week
in which they agreed to lit the con-
tracts for the work on the pool as
soon as 2,000 students had signed
pledges agreeing to pay $5 for a
swimming ticket in the pool. This
move was taken with the understand-
ing that it was to become effectiveI
after the Union fair proposition had
passed the Senate committee on Stu-
dent Affairs.
The final incentive toward the com-
pletion of the pool was given during
the latter part of the week when per-
mission was officially given for the
fair. This will be -held in the Yost
field house in the spring, and will be
a means of raising the additional $10,--
000 that will be required above the
$10,000 that the present drive will
bring. This sum, together withnthe
gifts that are expected on the near
completion of the pool, with make the
completioi of the pool within the nextj
year a certainty. .t
All committeemen of the Union, both
chairmen and regular members, will
meet at 4 o'clock today in room 3021
of the Union. The meeting is being
held in order to organize the members
as a whole in the new drive that will
be launched to pledge 2,000 students
to buy tickets to finish the swimming
Those students who have been
working in connection with the "-1,000
club" in securing signers for the pool,
drive are also asked to report at this
time. They will work in connection
with the Union in the campaign.

By Ruth A. Howell
Vladimir de Pachman chattered,
chuckled and played his way into the
heart of the audience who heard him
last night in Hill auditorium. Iis was
far from being a formal concert; rather
it was as if he were playing a recital
to his intimate friends-there were
five thousand of them. And that audi-
encehardly knew whether to laugh or
listen; fortunately they listened.
His program was well-planned, for
the pleasure of the listener as well as
for the ease of the player. Big num-
bers contrasted with more delicate
ones; rippling with crashing ones;
major with minor.
Of his playing-well, it is divine.
Never have we heard such interpreta-
tions, such care in producing each
single tone. The capricious, and the
soberer, more emotional sort of thing
develop more beautifully under his
treatment than things of a louder.
more brilliant type.
He seems more concerned for his
audience than other players are. He
watches them, and his face and his
manner and his hands indicate to the
listener that he is trying to get certain
effects. De Pachmann looks to see
if it "gets over," as it were; and he
can tell, and is happy if it does. He
waits for the approbation of each
Of his interpretation of individual
compositions much could be said.
Technical and emotional climaxes he
never misses, but makes the mst ot
them. The faintest tone, that seems
hardly whispered, is clear and firm.
His every effort causes the listener to
feel vividly.
On behalf of the things he played,
we can say that de Pachmann proved
that there is at least one composer of
whom we do not tire. Throughout a
group of 20 exquisite Chopin numbers,
there was never a moment of weari-
ness because of an alert, yet restful
attitude maintained.
His best heavy work was to be found
in the second-Impromntu, which he
offered as an encore. The third Bal-
lade was played with less contrast of
tempo, more sweetness and less bril-
liance than usual. The Etudes were
characterized by irreproachable tech-
nique, color and spiritedness. The
Berceuse was lovely, while the Ma-
zurkas and the G fiat major Valse
were marvels of perfection in spritel-
ness and technique.
As to his self-praise, he was not
the monkey we expected; and on the
other hand he is just about as good as
he says he is. We never heard anyone
who could get so much out of, or put
so much into, Chopin's music. He
knows when a thing is difficult, and
why should he not warn the audience?
If he chooses to give the impression of
a tone slowly losing itself into silence,
by looking for it first in the audience,
then on the wall, and last, under the
piano, why, arte we not convinced that
it is lost? And a man of his age, ought,
as he says, to know more about the
thing that he is doing, than those who
have not studied a tenth as long. He
should be proud of the interpretation
he has worked out for himself. And
if he is not modest, do we care, as
long as he plays divinely?
