The first two duties assigned to

there will be a more general parti-
cipation of themembers of each de-
partments in its management, and,
second, there should be a plan of or-
ganization whereby departments will
be grouped according to subject mat-
ter. The committee will submit plans
for these two changes to the literary
British Try To
Debt To U. S.
WASHINGTO4, Oct. 5 -(P)-Fi-
nancial spokesmen of two govern-
ments gathered to discuss around
a treasury conference table today the
$9,658,000,000 owed the United States
by Great Britain.
Representatives of the London
government sought to press Bri-
tain's desire to end payments on war
loans which, under the 1922 fund-
ing agreement, still have 51 years to
run. They were Sir Frederick Leith-
Ross and T. K. Bewley.
Under-Secretary Dearn Acheson of
the treasury and Frederick Livesey,
assistant economic advisor to the
state department, received the vis-
itors in accordance with President
Roosevelt's promise last spring that
debtor nations seeking reductions
would be heard.
But Acheson and Livesey opened
discussions with full knowledge that
in a formal expression not three
years old, congress-which has the
final say on any debt changes-
flatly opposed cancellation or re-
Stabilization of the pound and dol-
lar were forecast for consideration
before the meetings are over.
The British debt was funded at
$4,600,000,000 to reach, with interest,
$11,105,965,000 over a 62-year period.
The present unpaid principle is $4,-
465,000,000, and the Britons are ex-
pected to make a lump sum offer, re-
ported at about 10 per cent of the
unpaid principle. A $183,000,000 pay-
ment on interest and principle is due

angelo, a flutist; Philip de Cesare, fa-
moust cornetist; Rufut M. Arey, solo
clarinetist with the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra, and Antonio Vita-
dino, of Rome. Nicholas began his
musical study at the age of five and
when only 19 conducted the Roseto
Opera Company in "Il Trovatore"
without the use of any score what-
In 1912 the elder brother left Ro-
seto for New York,where he re-
mained for six months, coming to
Ann Arbor in the spring of 1913. He
obtained positions with various the-
atre orchestras, and from 1918 to
1927 was director of an Ann Arbor
theatre orchestra. Though not a
graduate of the School of Music, he
reviewed his study of theory under
its various masters during his early
years in Ann Arbor.
In 1926 Nicholas became director
of the Reserve Band of the Univer-
sity, a unit since disbanded, and in
1927-the same year his, brother was
called to East Lansing-he was made
director of the Varsity Band. His re-
gime in that post has made the
"Fighting Hundred" an organization
musically superior to most others of
the collegiate world, and since its in-
ception as a unit of the local R.O.T.C.
battalion, the Michigan band has
been a leader in the field for its
drilling and formations.
The brothers bear definite physical
resemblances to one another, and
each has retained the nervous habit
of frequently running a comb through
his abundant black hair in intervals
in rehearsals. Beyond that the simi-
larity ends. Nicholas conducts re-
hearsals in his shirt-sleeves, but his
younger brother rarely removes his
For nearly a year after coming to
the United States the Michigan band-
master could not speak a word of
English, and he relates numerous
amusing experiences in making him-
self understood when he was director
of an Ypsilanti theatre orchestra; he
still speaks with a definite accent,
though his mastery of the language
is complete. Leonard, on the other
hand, has become thoroughly Amer-
icanized (he pronounces his last
nameas though the second syllable
rhymed with "phone," while Nicholas
retains the Italian pronunciation,
"Falconi") and speaks without a
trace of accent.
