The story of a man who has
known eight Michigan presidents,
the report of the first Regents meet-
ing of the year, and a review of the
accomplishments of the Bureau of
Alumni Relations during its two
years of existence are the features
of this week's Michigan Alumnus.
George J. Lutz, Sr., painter-fore-
man of the Buildings and Grounds
department was hired by President
James $. Angell in 1888. At first
Lutz had so little painting todo
that he was often used for janitor
service, but in the summer of 1931
he had a crew of 39 men working
under him t top speed all the time.
Among the accomplishments' of
the Bureau of Alumni Relations ac-
cording to the review of the report
of Director Wilfred B. Shaw just
submitted to the President is the
distributing of a series of bulletins
to all of the alumni of the Univer-
sity, more than 70,000. Another is
the success of the Alumni university
the second session of which was,
held last June, with an attendance
of 92 an increase of 20 over the
enrollment of the previous year.
Another accomplishment of the
Bureau is the development of the
reading list service in conjunction
with the Library Extension service.
Lists have already been prepared
in 250 fields and more than 10,500,
lists have been distributed to 1,500
Chicago Physicians Ask:
Protection f o r Calls
CHICAGO, Oct. 22. -- (P) - The
Chicago Medical society Wednesday
night asked police protection for its
members while on night sick calls.
"Conditions have assumed such
proportions," wrote Dr. Charles M.
Phifer to Police Commissioner All-
man, "that many physicians are
afraid to make night calls because
of robberies perpetrated upon phy-
sicians while they are ministering
to the sick. One' of our members
has been held up six times in the
last few weeks."

Hitler Hard Man to
Interview; Prefers
to Remain Standing
MUNICH, Ger many-(JP)--Adolf
Hitler does not like to sit down for
an interview..
At times, however, he can be per-
suaded to receive a foreign corres-
pondent for a brief "audience" and
introduction. It is a matter of but
a few ininutes, during which the
called must do quick thinking to
elicit a few quotable ideas from
the chief of the brown shirts.
As one enters the room Hitler
rises from behind his large desk,
advances toward the visitor and,
in a rather rough, hoarse voice
introduces himself: "Hitler."
His secretary-adjutant stands re-
spectfully behind him throughout
the meeting and sees to it that
the chat shall be limited to a few
The same mannerisms that are
characteristic of Hitler in action
on the plaforim crop up as he
speaks privately to one-in fact,
his platform manner has become a*
part of him. Now he folds his arms
in Napoleonic fashion, now he em-
phasizes his points by short, ner-
vous gestures.
Asked about his immediate poli-
cies, Hitler said:
"Our whole purpose is to put so-
cial democracy in the hole. When
the vote on the vest pocket cruiser
came up we stayed away, although
we are, of course, for a military
strong Germany.
"We did it because we wanted
to embrace the socialists and
make them either unseat the
Bruening government or v o t e,
against their previous protesta-
tions, for the cruiser. This put
them in bad with a large section
of their membership.

To Be Second Concert on Choral
Union Series; Conductor's
First Appearance Here.
Conducted by Serge Koussevitsky
the Boston Symphony orchestra
will give the second concert on the
Choral Union series Tuesday, Octo-
ber 27. This will be the first time
in over a decade that the orches-
tra has appeared here and marks
the premier performance of Kous-
sevitsky in Ann Arbor.
Since its inception 51 years ago,
the Boston orchestra has had nine
different conductors at its head.
Sir George Henschel was the first
conductor, leading the orgapiza-
tion from 1881 to 1884. Wilhelml
Gericke followed him and served
the next five years and also from
1898 to 1996.
Arthur Nikisch was the conduc-
tor from 1889 to 1893; while from
1893 to 1898, Emil Paur wielded the
baton. Dr. Karl Muck was at the
head of the orchestra from 1906 to
1908 and from 1912 to 1918. In the
interim of Dr. Muck's absence, Max
Feidler led the orchestra. Henri
Rabaud, the organization's first
French conductor presided in 1918
and 1919.
Another Frenchman, Pierre Mon-
teux, led the orchestra from 1919
to 1924 and since 1924, Serge Kous-
sevitsky has been at the head.
The Boston Symphony is regard--j
ed by many as one of the leading
musical organizations of the world
today and Koussevitsky has receiv-
ed acclaim from all parts as a tal-
ented and ingenius conductor. Be-
sides the concert it will give in Ann
Arbor, an appearance will also be
made in Detroit the following
