A Pep Meet To
Permission To Be Asked.
Of Deans For Dismissal

Lack Of Interest Is Cited
As Reason For Showing

King Of Violinists
,Because they believe the recent
lack of enthusiasm shown by stu-
dents for the Varsity football team
may result in defeat Saturday when
the strong Iowa team comes here,
several prominent students are plan-
ning a pep meeting to be held at
11:30 a. m. tomorrow on the steps
of the General Library.
Since the required permission of
the deans of the several colleges to
dismiss classes has not yet been ob-
tained, it will not be known until
some time late today whether the
venture will go through. The stu-
dents who are behind the meeting
are confident, however, that the nec-
essary permission will be quickly ob-
Present plans call for short talks
by one or two of the coaches and a
few of the players, cheers led by the
cheerleading squad, and numbers by
the Varsity band.
"We feel that there hasn't been
nearly enough student punch behind
the team," one of the leaders of the
group said. "Less than 200 welcomed
the team back from Champaign. If
we expect the team to keep up its
string of victories the entire student
body must get behind it."
If permission is granted by Univer-
:sity offlials the Undergraduate
Council will sponsor the meeting.

With Soviet Envoy
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8.-()
Formalities brushed aside, President
Roosevelt and Maxim Litvinov drove'
straight toward the problem of Rus-
sian recognition' today in a confer-
ence that lasted almost an hour.
Before and after his talks with
President Roosevelt, the Commissar
of Foreign Affairs for the Soviet Gov-
ernment talked with Secretary Hull
at the State Department.
Aside from a formal meeting today,
original plans had called for the first
discussions between Mr. Roosevelt
and Mr. Litvinov to be held tomor-
row. The fact that no time was
wasted was interpreted in official
circles as meaning there had been
no halt in the steady march of de-
velopments towards Russian recog-

Gi e Concert
Will Present Numbers By
Schubert, . Tchaikowsky
Fritz Kreisler, distinguished Aus-
trian violinist, who has won renown
as violin virtuoso, composer, military
captain and author, will make his
eighth Ann Arbor concert appearance
at 8:15 p. m. tonight, in Hill Audi-
The "King of Violinists," whose last
appearance in this city was on Oct.
13, 1930, will arrive in Ann Arbor
today a few hours before the concert
and will leave shortly ,afterwards,
due to his heavy concert schedule
which prevents a longer stopover.
According to leading. American
critics, no violinist of his time has
equallednthehold which Fritz Kreis-
ler has upon his public, and none
has won and maintained such a hold
through clearer "deserts or higher
qualities. During his years in the
United States he has played in every
part of the country, in cities and
towns that rarely hear .an artist of
such distinction, as well as in the
musical centers that annually pre-
sent four or five "Kreisler Concerts."
. A last-minute change in the pro-
gram for tonight's concert calls for
the inclusion of Ballet Music "Rosa-
munde," by Schubert, which makes
the complete program as follows:
Sonata, C minor (for violin and
piano), by Grieg; Chaconne (for vio-
lin alone), by Bach; Impromptu, by
Schubert; Ballet Music "Rosa-
munde," by Schubert; Andante Can-
tabile, by Tchaikowsky; Humoresque,
by Tchaikowsky-Kreisler; Hymn to
the Sun, by Rimsky-Korsakov-Kreis-
ler; and Four Caprices, by Porpora,
Wieniawski, and Paganini.
