siastic. "The depression can do1
worst now," Mueller said today.I

Noted Russian
Violinist To Be
Next In Series
"Nathan the Wise," alias Nathan
Milstein, the young Russian violinist
whose work thus far has stamped
him as one of the three foremost
artists produced by the Soviet regime,
recently arrived in America for his
second tour, in the course of which
he will play in the fifth Choral
Union concert on Jan. 16 at Hill
Auditorium.
Mr. Milstein, who is classed with
the pianist Horowitz and the cellist
Piatagorsky, makes up a trio gen-
erally recognized by critics as the
greatest musical figures of young
Russia. The violinist, who was born
in 1904, continued his studies
throughout the stress of the Russian
revolution, and finally, at the age, of
19, he started on a series of tours,
accompanied by his colleague Horo-
witz.
A personal portrait of Mr. Milstein
is probably sufficient to indicate the
unique temperament of the man. He
is slim, of medium height, has dark
hair, dark eyes, a senstiive face, an
engaging smile, a sense of humor
which illuminates his natural re-
serve, and an intuitive knowledge of
men and music which has brought
him the nickname, "Nathan the
Wise."
Four years ago he spoke only Rus-
sian; today he thoroughly under-
stands French, German and Spanish,
and has a working grasp of Italian
and English. He adores contract
bridge, strawberries with whipped
cream, steaks, historical Spanish
music, novels and biographies of
great men, gayly colored silk pyjamas,
cigarettes, Paris, and Rio de Janeiro.
He has definite superstitions. When
walking he always circles a lamp post
on the right side; on crossing the
street he makes a detour around a
car to make sure he does not pass
it on the left. Before going to a con-
cert he considers it a disastrous omen
if is room is not left in absolute
order, with everything in its proper
place in his bags and trunks, and all
his luggage locked. It is particularly
unlucky if his "carte d'identite" from
Buenos Aires, which he always keeps
stuck into the back of the mirror in
his dressing case, is at a crooked
angle before he plays.
One of the most stirring tributes
ever paid Mr. Milstein by the press
was made by Harvey Gaul of the
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "A miracle.
You can go right through the Auer
first aid to trying fiddlers and he has
it all. He is the whole catalogue from
acciacato to zartlich, and when you}
are all through there is still his rav-
ishing tone singing in your ears. Re-
member the name-Milstein! Next
year you'll be trying to get in."

Politics And Depression Held '32 Spotlight Here

The year just past was an eventful
one in local circles as well as na-
tional. Local politics and politicians
dominated the scene,aovershadowed
though they were by the great na-
tional spectacle.
The depression took its toll in the
crisis faced both by the University
and the fraternity houses. The
University, threatened constantly by
legislative slashes, cut its expenses,
and the passage of the 15-mill
amendment complicated the situa-
tion still further. The fraternities,
after coming near to extinction
under deferred rushing, were saved
by prompt administrative action and
the inauguration of new rules of
rushing.
Michigan athletic teams and indi-
viduals covered themselves with
glory, with Olympic Champion Eddie
Tolan and the national champion-
ship football team heading the pa-
rade.
Following is a chronological sum-
mary of the local events of the year:
