Band Director Explains
Alma Mater Omission
A crowded between-halves pro-
gram was responsible for the
Varsity Band's failure to play
"The Yellow and Blue" at yester-
day's game, it was explained last
night by Prof. Nicholas D. Fal-
cone, director.
"Each band is alloted a certain
period for its formations between
halves, and the Ohio State band
took three minutes more than the
period assigned it, cutting into
our time," the bandmaster de-
clared. "Even though we had al-
lowed ourselves plenty of time for
the lengthy "STEVE" formation
and our others, we were hampered
by the three minutes being cut
from our time."
When the Buckeye band had
gone through its formations the
"Fighting Hundred" was forced to
take its seats after the "STEVE"
and script "OHIO" formations,
omitting the alma mater in what
one former student referred to as
"the cardinal sin of omission" for
Homecoming Week-end.

DES MOINES, Iowa, Oct. 20.-(P)
-Milo Reno, president of the Na-
tional Farmers Holiday Association,
tonight carried his plea for support
of a national farm strike whichl
started at noon today, to the doors
of industrial labor.
Announcing his departure to Chi-
cago for a conference on Monday
with A. F. Whitney of Cleveland,
president of the Brotherhood of Rail-
way Trainmen, Reno said that "every
effort would be made to enlist the
moral support of all other groups of
society."
To the cause of the non-buying,
non-selling strike, the fiery holiday
leader summoned the nation's 30,-
000,000 farm population from New
York to California and Gulf to Can-
ada.
Meanwhile, President Roosevelt
called for the "spirit of cooperation"
of Colonial days in accepting an
honorary degree from Washington'
College at Chestertown, Md. Cogni-
zant with the strike movement, the
president indicated he might have
an important statement in an ad-
dress tomorrow night. In what num-
bers farmers would join in the holi-'
day movement or stick by the fed-
eral government's relief program was
not known tonight.
Appealing for support from mem-
bers and non-members of the holiday
association alike, Reno asserted thatl
the strike was a battle to determine
"whether the farmer shall become a
peasant, the menial slave of the
usurers and the industrialists," or re-
tain the independence "inherited
from his fathers."
In a letter to state association,
presidents, R e n o advised that
"schools, churches, civic institutions,
labor groups can be informed, not
only as to the justness of the farm-
ers cause, but also that every business
will suffer if the farmers purchasing
power is not restored, and that the
life of the republic is, at this time,
hanging in the balance."
"Cost of production" for farm pro-
ducts is the basic demand of the holi-
day members, and can be attained
only by the cooperation in the strike
of every farmer," its sponsors assert.

Litvinoff Prepares To G(
To Washington To Mee
President Roosevelt
Four Main Issues
To Be Discussed
Soviet Delegation Which
Will Accompany Foreign
Minister Not Decided
MOSCOW, Oct. 21.-(P)-This
Russian capital, busy normally with
myriad details reaching into the ev-
eryday life of the most remote Soviet
peasant, found today in preparations
for recognition negotiations with the
United States another reason for
bustling activity.
These considerations involved who
should go to Washington with for-
eign commissar Maxim Litvinoff to
talk with President Roosevelt, the
Soviet platform in the conversations
and a review of industrial and finan-
cial details.
When M. Litvinoff will leave and
whom he will take with him have
not been announced, for the over-
shadowing fact was the enthusias-
tically hailed statement that Presi-
dent Roosevelt asked that negotia-
tions looking to recognition be under-
taken.
Discussions went forward on what
Russia could hope for from the re-
sumption of official relations and
supporting facts were gathered re-
garding credit, tariff, and foreign
relations, particularly in the far east.
Newspapers commented at length
on the' development, editorial writers
being especially interested in the
proposed recognition as a peace move.

Not one accident, but more peo-
ple arrested for drunkenness and dis-
orderly conduct than at any time
since the war, and probably before
that, was the, report of the police and
sheriff offices after yesterday's foot-
ball game.
Twenty-two persons, a good por-
tion of them students from both Ohio
State and Michigan, spent a greater
part of their day in the Washtenaw
County Jail. The ages of those ar-
rested ranged everywhere from 16 to
63, but the great majority were young
men in their early twenties.
Most of those arrested were al-
lowed to sleep themselves into a more
presentatble appearance during the
afternoon, and last night were
brought before an impromptu court,,
Rumors of raids on campus
fraternities by either city police,
county deputy sheriffs, or Fed-
eral agents from Washington
spread through Ann Arbor last
night, but all were emphatically
denied by officials. Both the city
police and the officers at the
county jail said they had not
raided any house and intended to
raid none. The possibility that
Federal agents might be conduct-
ing the raids was discounted, be-
cause any one arrested would
have to be lodged in the county
jail, and no one had been
brought in last night.

Roosevelt Will
Talk To Nation
On Farm Policy
Address Might Contain A
Mention Of The Russian
Question Facing Country
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.--()-His
NRA program assailed on one side
by urban consumers protesting higher
prices and on the other by farmers
demanding more for their products,
President Roosevelt tomorrow will
again make an explanation of his
policies to the country.
Mr. Roosevelt today was in the old
colonial town of Chestertown, Md.,
receiving an honorary degree from
historic Washington College, but be-
tween times he was patterning the
address which may, also, deal with
the Russian question that was re-
vived by his sudden announcement
yesterday that personal conferences
had been arranged by a Russian en-
voy.
However, the farm situation, pre-
cipitated by the strike in the wheat
belt and the denunciation of the re-
covery program by Gov. Bryan of
Nebraska, was claiming the most se-
rious thought of the entire adminis-
tration for the present.
Senator Norris, the Nebraska Re-
publican independent who supported
President Roosevelt in the last cam-
paign reiterated today his belief that
currency expansion was the peg upon
which an immediate uplift in farm
prices must be hung. He added that
he was "doing everything I can to
help the President."

Famed Master Of Ceremonies
Explains That He 'Can Take It'

By GUY M. WHIPPLE, Jr.
Here is the little-known inside
story of Detroiter Ray Conlin, lately
dubbed "Oscar," who acts as master
of ceremonies at the midnight vaude-
ville programs of the Michigan The-
atre. It is, perforce, the story of the'
most booed, the most hissed, and the
most thoroughly heckledvaudeville
attache who ever struck Ann Arbor.
"Oscar," who only once since he
first became the Michigan's master
of ceremonies in January, 1933 has
ever been able to make himself
heard against the jeers and the cat-
calls of local audiences, honestly en-

of booing and hissing was impossible
to stop. In some s t r a,n g e way
"Oscar" seemed to chafe the nerves
of his audience. But they like to boo,
and he likes to be booed, so that set-!
tles that, according to "Oscar."
The one chance "Oscar" had to
make himself heard came about in
this way: Jerry Hoag appeared on
the stage in place of the favored
"Oscar" and announced t h a t a
brother of "Oscar" would act as mas-
ter of ceremonies that night. He
then led a gibbering young monkey
onto the stage, followed a minute
later,by the real "Oscar," who proud-
lv displaved a sign hung from his
