Albert Spalding Will Present
Eighth Concert in Choral
Union Series.
Albert Spalding, American violin-
ist, will be heard in Ann Arbor for
the third time at 8:15 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium when he
will provide the eighth program in
this season's series of Choral Union
concerts. He has been heard in Ann
Arbor on previous occasions, both !
as soloist at the May Festival and
in concert.
"On both these occasions," stated
Dr. Charles Sink, president of the
School of Music, "his receptions
were so profound that the School
of Music has been continuously
urged to bring him back for an
additional recital. Not until this
season, however, was it found
possible to do so, on account of
conflicts of date and the fact that
he spends so much time each sea-
son abroad."
Mr. Spalding will play the fol-
lowing program: La Folia, by Corel-
li; Allegro, by Padre Martini; Fan-
tasie for piano and violin, Op 159,

gretto, andantino, allegretto viv-

France is the second largest hold-

her business situation appears to
warrant. France has almost as
much gold as all Europe combined.
The United States and France have
60 per cent of the world's gold.
France has one of the largest
and most e'cient standing armies
in Europe.
'rho gold and army situation in
France contain two possibilities:
1. That gold may eate jealousy
among other nations that will re-
suit in war.
2. France may succumb to the
human failing of wanting to try
out her war machine.
May Involve Japan.
Russia has a large standing army,
officered in a large way by German
officers, that undoubtedly is itch-
ing for something to do. Russia
might enter a conflict as an excuse
to take over China. Such a move
would bring Japan in.
The report hinted that such a
war would be strictly a European
"broil." The United States, it said,
was not interested in war and is
suffering from nothing at this time'
other than financial troubles.

appear in the office of the dean
between 8:30 and 12, and 1:30 to 5'

it will be impossible, Rea stated,
for any applications taken later

Nation Has Large Bill
for Lighting Airways
(BV Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, J a n. 26.-Tent
million dollars a year is the pros-
pective bill for the country's night-
lighted airplane routes.
With something like a shock Gov-
ernment officials have realized the
size of the expenditure they let
themselves in for when Congress
decided to furnish illumination for
the air routes.
At present the expense is about
$210,000 a year for each 1,000 miles
of lighted airways, distinctly above
the original estimate. The eventu-
al total cost was computed by Sec-
retary Robert P. Lamont, under
whose jurisdiction in the Commerce
Department the expenditure comes.

BERLIN, Jan. 26.-Usual Sunday
clashes among Communists, Fas-

death, between 30 and 40 injuries
and scores of arrests in various
parts of Germany.
At Hahnheim, near Mainz, even
the burgomaster was injured when
he attempted to settle a political
fuss between Fascists and Reichs-
bannermen. He was thrashed by the
Hitlerites. One policeman was bad-
ly beaten in addition, two Fascists
were taken to the hospital and 40
were arrested.
Ninety Communists invaded a
Fascist meeting at Kassel, with the
result that chairs, table legs and
beer mugs were hurled wildly.

Tremendous Majority Vote Gives
Power of Referendum
to Student Body.
According to a story in The
Northwestern Daily, students of
Northwestern University last week
ratified a new council constitution
by an 18 to 1 majority.
Three distinct changes were made
in the constitution, and four new
sections were added. One of the
major changes was a reduction in
the membership, from 21 members
'to 9. Formerly nominations for elec-
tion to the council were made, as'
at Michigan, oy the council itself.
The new constitution provides for
nomination by petition signed by a
certain number of qualified voters.
The power of referendum was
given the students over any legis-
lative action of the council in the
new document. Two new powers
given the council were those "to
investigate and render findings on
any matter within the declared pur-
poses of this constitution," and "to
adopt and enforce such regulations
as it may deem proper for the gov-
ernment of the student body." Pro-
vision was also made for ready
access of students to council actin
on matters of concern to them
through a new provision for bring-
ing matters up for council action.
The preamble of the new consti-
tution stated that it had been
drawn up "to provide a more effec-
tive participation and voice student
opinion in student matters, and to
provide means for student self-

be required for immediate cash
redemption of adjusted service
certificates at face value was
given the Senate finance commit-
tee today by Frank T. Hines, ad-
ministrator of veterans affairs.
Hines was the first witness as
the committee opened hearings
on the proposal, which was en-
dorsed yesterday by the national
executive committee of the Amer-
ican Legion, and is being demanded
by some members of both houses
to afford relief to veterans in need
because of the depression.
Veterans Hard Pressed.
Without expressing his personal
view on the legislation, Hines pre-
sented figures to show many vet-
erans are hard pressed financially.
Loans to them on their certifi-
cates have increased during the
present month to a figure far in
excess of any previous ones, he
So far this month, he testified,
loans amounting to $17,009,000 have
been made and they are being pro-
vided at the rate of about $1,000,-
000 a day where as formerly they
have averaged between $5,000,000
and $7,000,000 a month. Demands
for the loans are not confined to
any one section and part of the
nation, he said.

Immediate cash redemption on
the basis of the current value would
cost $1,707,507,000, he testified.
Immediate cash payment of their
face value, as of 1945, would cost
$3,412,000,000 he said, but the gov-
ernment would save about $1,000,-
000 a year between now and then
in administrative costs.
This would amount to increasing
the soldiers' bonus by $1,670,000,000,

otherwise would not be needed until
