Little Expresses Belief That Promises
'Of Governor In Regard To J
Action Will 11old
Although Gov. Fred W. Green firm-
ly denied in an interview yesterday,
that he would veto the mill tax bill
passed b the last legislature, he says
that the state of the public finances
will allow only the bare cost of the
maintenance and operation of state in-
stitutions and department.
President Clarence Cook Little is
confident that Governor Green will not
break his promise not toveto the mill
tax bill, as the govern.or himself has
advocated the ren oval of the tax limit.
The President's statement follows:
"I am receiving from University of
Michigan clubs and many other organ-
izations, as well as the press, queries
as to the present statu of the Univer-
sity bills and feel that a statemen
may be helpful at this time.
"Of course I am disturbed by the in- I
terviews which lhave recently been at-
tributed to Gov. Green. On the other
hand, he has so many times declared
himself as being in favor of all the
buildings finally voted to the Univer-
sity by the overwhelming action of
both branches of the legislature, that
I am sure that he has not been cor-
rectly quoted. Only a day or two be-
fore the legislature adjourned the mat-
ter of the school building for research
and advancement of our knowledge in
the great field of education was
brought up in a conference with Gov.
Green, Senator Sink, Representative
Warner and myself.
"Some misinformed people had been
trying to make the governor believe
that the building was a normal school.
The governor clearly recognized the
absurdity of this and told us that he
was not in favor of elininating that
:item. He had previously in my pres-
ence requested the senate finance com-
mittee to be as generous as it could
with the University both for building
and for maintenance. When therefore
this cotmittee after most careful con-
sideration at a time when every other
financial need of the state had been
considered by them, put through the
senate with only one dissenting vote
the two University bills as they now
stand, and as they were voted by a
tremendous majority of the house I am
sure that the governor will, stand for
his former statement.
One of Platform Planks.
"I do not believe that the governor,
with education, forning as it did one
of the very foundation planks of his
platform, will cut educational appro--
priations for maintenance or for build-
ing. The two houses were willing to
stand for the responsibility of voting
for the bills. The representatives of i
the people who elected the governor
spoke in no uncertain way-by not a
slight or doubtful majority. There
might be an excuse for a chief execu-
tiveless openly committed to educa-
tion and to increased opportunity for
the boys and girls of Michigan to op-
pose or to override the judgment of
the legislature.
"I can see nothing in the governor's
written word or in his often repeated
statements to ne that would justify
sne in believing that the statements at-
tributedeto hirr or the rumors of his an-
tagoistic attitude towards the action
of the legislature concerning the Uni-
versity are anything more than un-
authorized views of those not in a po-
sition to know.
"I am expecting a denial from him
of these rumors in the near future.
Such a good business m-an as he is
would surely have foreseen long ago
that cuts in the University program
would have been necessary had such
been the case.
"I am sure that he would never have
led the finance committee and the rest
of us to count on a program and then
override previous assurances after the
legislature had left Lansing."

The final Beethoven music for the
Festival will be played by Mr. Hut-

cult "Concerto for the Pianoforte, No.
5". This work was unplayed for a
considerable time after its composi-
tion, but was finially given in 1810, by
another. Beethoven himself ceased
playing in 1808.
'he other number which will be
played by Mr. Hutcheson is the Schu-
bert "Symphony No. 10 in C major,"
in which he will be supported by the
Chicago Symphony orchestra. The
"Victory Ball" by Schelling, a fan-
tasy, will be performed by the or-
chestra alone. This number was first
played by the Philadelphia Symphony
orchestra in 1923. It was written by
Schelling from the poem by Alfred
Noyes, of the same title. The Schubert
piece was selected for its similarity
to the other numbers that are going
to make up the theme of the Festival.
Huteheson Makes Debut
Ernest Hutcheson is an Australian-
American, who has never before been
heard in Ann Arbor, although nego-
tiations have been pending on differ-
ent occasions. The orchestra for his
recital will be under the direction of
Frederick Stock.

be given entirely over to the perfor-
