Efrem -Zimbalist, renowned young
Russian violinist will make his first
appearance in Ann Arbor, as soloist
at the fourth Choral Union concert in
Hill Auditorium, Wednesday evening,

acclaimed and established as a peer
among violin virtuosos upon his first
appearance with the Boston Sym-
phony orchestra in 1911. Zimbalist

The We'k's News
In rief
The following column is a sur-
vey of the news 6f the world dur-
ing the past wee , compiled from
the press. An a tempt has been
made to present the neWvs as brief-
ly and concisely 'as possible.
President Coolidge's, address was
delivered after a three- day deadlock in
which the progressive bloc held the
"balance of power". The bloc would
allow Congress to proceed only after
extracting promises of extensive re-
vision of house rules. Congress, in
general, reacted favorably to his mes-
sage, which will also be his platform
for re-election.
Ensuing reactions:
Representative Nelson, leader of the
progressives said it contained little
that would please tf e country. Wall
street and business interests consider
it sound and constrictive. The Amer-
ican Legion growls, at the treatmentj
of the bonus question. Senator Ship-

Vachel Lindsay Will Appear
Tomorrow On Whimsies Course

Hague Minister Instructed
Negotiations for Like
With Holland

to Begin

Vachel Lindsay, the singing poet,
will open the annual Whimsies lec-
ture course at 8 o'clock . tomorrow
night in Hill auditorium. He has not
announced his subject but will prob-
ably speak on some phase of modern
poetry, and is expected to read some
of his own verses.
He is peculiar in that he is more
like a troubadour than a poet. When
listening to him read his own works,
the audience is transplanted to the
middle ages; Lindsay, the troubadour,
is traveling from castle to castle,
singing his original verse to the bar-
Combines Verse and Tone
In this particular Mr. Lindsay is a
hang-over from the middle ages, from
the ancient Greeks, and from the prim-'
itive nations, for he makes an appeal
for closer relations between poet and
audience, for a return to healthier
open-air conditions and immediate
personal contact. And yet Lindsay is
ahead of his time. He is striving to
take poetry out of the library, the

closet. and to restore it to the audi-
ence-chamber. To quicken the pub-
lic interest in poetry, Lindsay has
brought forward a peculiar combin-
ation of Yt~e and tone. An analysis
of his works would probably reveal
about two-thirds poetry and one-third..
music or simple tunes. I
Tilley to Introduce Him
Nicholas Vachel Lindsay was born
in Springfield, Illinois, in 1879. After
graduating from Hiram college he
spent three years at the Chicago Art
institute and then three more at the
New York School of Art under Chase
and Henri. In 1905 he started his ca-
reer as a lecturer, from which he
gradually worked into his chosen
work, poetry. He was first brought to
light as a poet with the first issue
of "Poetry, a Magazine of Verse," in
the autumn of 1912. ,
Prof. Morris P. Tilley of the English
department will introduce Mr. Lindsay
tomorrow. Tickets for the lecture may
be obtained at the bookstores and at
the box office in Hill auditorium at
50 cents each.

Washington, Dec. 8.-(By A.P.)-
Announcement was made at the state
department today that a commercial
treaty had been signed with Germany
to replace the similar convention ab-
rogated at the time of the war, and
that instructions had been sent to
the minister at the Hague, Richard
M. Tobin, to begin negotiations of a
similar treaty with the Dutch govern-
The action marks a forward step in
the purpose of the Washington gov-
rnment to make over all of its gen-
ral commercial agreements with
>ther countries in the light of changed
world conditions due to the World
war. No detailed information, con-
erning the negotiations however has
been made available here, beyond that
ll of the new treaties are to rest up-
>n most favored treatment for Ameri-
an nationals.
With the signing of the new German
treaty another international agree-
nent has been added to the list which
await senate ratification. The two
laims with Mexico which are the
basis of restoration of diplomatic re-
lations between Washington and
Mlexicotity, will be sent to the Sen-
te next week.
Behind some of the grievances lie
the special liquor treaty now in pro-
progress of negotiation with the Brit-
ish government.
Negotiations similar to those at the
Hague are expected in Paris, Madrid,
Rome, Tokio and certain Latin-Am-
erican capitols.
