on Choral Union Series.
The Don Cossack Russian male
chorus, under the direction of Serje
Jaroff, will appear as the third at-
traction of the Choral Union series
on Thursday, Nov. 20, in Hill audi-
Jaroff, whose chorus consists of
former members of the Russian
army, first organized his group
after the White Army had evacu-
ated Crimea. About 8,000 of gen-
eral Wrangel's troops were given
a haven on the island of Lemnos.
They were without any equipment,
and had only their uniforms to
protect them. The band had lost
its instruments, so they organized
several choirs to keep up the mor-
ale. Jaroff's particular choir was
so well-received that, when the
regiments were moved to Bulgar-
ia, his singers obtained employ-
ment from one of the Greek Or-
thodox churches in Sofia, and from
that beginning his group of singers,
all former Cossack officers from

the Don, drifted into concert work,
traveling all over the world to sing
their songs of the Don and Volga,
as well as chants of their religious

President of General Motors
Sees 'Turn in Tide'
of Business.
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Nov. 11.-Announc-
ing that the General Motors corp-
oration has maintained salaries and
wages, president Alfred P. Sloan,
jr., said today that a reduction in
the wage scale would not only
delay the return of- more normal
times but unnecessarily limit the
future prosperity of the nation.
In a letter to stock-holders ac-
companying the nine-months earn-
ing statement, previously made
public, Mr. Sloan said that in his
opinion "it is important for indus-
try to appreciate the fact that the
country's prosperity is founded on
a high wage scale.
"The broader the margin that
exists between the daily wage and
the necessities of life," he con-
tinued, "the more the individual
has available to purchase additional

products and enjoy a profit by his
leisure hours. This development of
purchasing power creates wealth
which in turn acts and reacts
throughout our whole industrial
"General Motors has not reduced
either salaries or wages and it is
my hope that no readjustment of
the character will be necessary,"
he said. In evaluating the present
position of General Motors weight
must be given to the fact that it
recognizes as a major industrial)
purpose the importance of doing
its part in maintaining purchasing
power through periods of adversity.
Summarizing the business situ-
ation, Mr. Sloan said: "I feel that
there is no occasion for losing faith
in the principles and policies of the
corporation; neither would we lose
faith and confidence in each other
nor in our industrial leaders.
"On the contrary, we individually
should do the most we can to re-E
duce the discomfort and suffering
which follow all economic readjust-
ments. Finally, we should discharge 1
our responsibilities, whatever they'
may be, in such a manner that
when the tide turns, a matter of
only a question of time, we shall,
be better able to enjoy and appre-
ciate the bigger opportunities that'
have yet to come to us."
Mr. Sloan emphasized the oppor-
tunity presented to industrial man-
agement "to inject into business a
different type of thinking and a
different appreciation of the prob-
lem's that have existed for a num-
ber of years past."

Reveal Plot to Parcel

Six Countries Involved
in Red Prisoner's
(Bv Associated Press)
MOSCOW, U.S.S.R., Nov. ir-
From a dossier of indictments and
purported confessions in t h e
hands of the peoples commissar
for justice, there emerged today
Soviet charges of an international
plot to overthrow the government
and to parcel out the most valua-
ble natural resources among the
nations which fringe their bor-
Eight Russians, said to be anti-
Soviets, are in prison u n d e r
charges of high treason, the pun-
ishment for which is death. The
alleged confession of one of them,
the counter-revolutionist, Ramsin,
named a group of outstanding fig-
ures from half-a-dozen nations as
co-conspirators with leaders of the
plot in Moscow.
Lawrence Implicated in Charge.
Sir Henri Deterling, British oil
magnate, is named as one of those
who aided in financing the prelim-
inary campaign. Former Premier
Poincare and Foreign Minister Bri-
and of France are called "arch con-
spirators," and the name of Brit-
ain's "Lawence of Arabia" adds a
final dab of color to the picture.
From Ramsin's purported ones-
sien, the '-overnment has recon-
structed the elaborate plot. It was
hatched in Moscow and Leningraz,
fed with foreign capital in Paris
and supported by active sympathy
from Great Britain, France, Poland,
Finland, Rumania, and other "cap-
italist" nations.
Rumania to Provide 'Spark.'
There was to have been a diplo-
matic "incident" on the Rumanian
border, and Rumania was to have
leclared war. In quick succession,
Polanid, France and England were
to have followed her example.
An army of 600,000 men under
the White General Loukonski, was
to have marched on Moscow, gath-
ering strength of numbers as it
went by enlistment of discontented
peasants, simultaneously, while an
army under the White General
Dnikin moved on Leningrad.
France was to supply arms and
ammunition and the British fleet
was to steam into the Baltic and
the Black sea, seizing the Crimea
and Leningrad.
