Pact Of Fascists
Feared Aimed,
At Expansion
Italian - German - Japanese
Agreement 'Have Nots'
Thrust For More Land
China And Brazil
May Be Drawn In
LONDON, Nov. 8.-{I)-Growing
fear was aroused in many parts of
the world tonight that the Italo-
German-Japanese pact against in-
ternatfonal communisnr was aimed
chiefly at territorial expansion..
Open skepticism was voiced in sev-
eral countries at the signatories' as-
surances that the agreement signed
at Rome Saturday was directed ex-
clusively against Bolshevism and
constituted a safeguard against war.
Recent Italian support of German
colonial demands heightened suspi-
cion of Itajy's purpose in adhering
to the pact at a time when the Jap-
anese army is occupying large sections
of China.'
Some British quarters expected
Japan to grant Italy and Germany
special economic advantages in oc-
cupied portions of China, excluding
the United States and Great Britain.
A source close to the German
Chancellery .in Berlin disclosed that
Germany would attempt to end the
Chinese-Japanese war by bringing
China into the anti-communism
front as the price of peace with Ja-
pan. This would mean renunciation
of China's close friendship with So-
viet Russia.
Italian and German insistence that
their intervention in the Spanish
civil war is a fight against commun-
ism was cited in some quarters as an
example of how the new alliance
might operate in other parts of the,
world, including South America.
The possibility the fascist powers
might seek to bring Brazil into the
pact was held in some quarters to be
a potential threat to the United
States. Fascist intervention in South
American politics after the pattern
in Spain might involve the United
States, which stands as guardianI

Although lighting is recognized as
an important problem, limitation of
funds prevents the buildings andl

out an extensive improvement of ex-
isting facilities, Edward C. Pardon,
superintendent, told the Daily yester-
Since enough money to fill all re-
quirements is not available, those
projects that are concerned with
keeping the buildings usable are given
first consideration. "For example, it
is much more feasible to spend eight
or nine thousand dollars for repairing
roofs or keeping up the heating plant,j
than it is to spend the same amount
for adding to the lighting system,"
Mr. Pardon said.
A large program to remedy the
lighting problem in University build-
ings was inaugurated and a sizable
reserve built up before the depression,
but the slump forced abandonment
of the plans.
"An estimate made several years
ago pl4.ced the cost of the most im-
portant additions to lighting at ap-
proximately $8,000," Mr. Pardon said.
"The amount needed now is con-
siderably above that figure. For the
library alone, the installations ex-
pense would total $1,750. However,
the problem is given quite a bit of at-
tention, as some improvements are
made each year in spite of the re-
duced budget."
"Lighting is not the only problem
that merits attention in our pro-
gram. Acoustics are so bad in some'
rooms that it is doubtful that the
students can hear their professors.
This certainly is a situation that
might well be remedied."

Artur Rodzinski, conductor of the
Cleveland Orchestra, will bring his
organization to Ann Arbor for a con-
cert at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill Audi-
torium for the second of this season's
Choral Union Series.
This is the fifth year of Mr. Rod-
zinski's leadership of the Cleveland
Orchestra, founded 20 years ago.
Last year through special arrange-
ments, the Cleveland maestro also
conducted the New York Philhar-
monic Symphony for eight weeks
where he appeared in 28 perfor-
mances. He has also been engaged
for part of the coming season as co-
conductor with Toscanini to lead

the Progressive Club meeting last
night in the Union Ballroom.

Art Cinema League, it was announced1
at the meeting.
Lash, Executive Secretary of the
American Student Union, describedI
how internal strife between the pop-
ulations of different provinces and
between the various political parties
was overcome in order to build a
unified and disciplined army and a
united civilian front.
Groups of soldiers learning to read
and write in the trenches were cited
by Lash as evidence that the Gov-

democratic education. He added that !

Referring to "Michigan boys fight-

Lash lauded the "heroic" part the In-

"defending Spanish democracy." He
said American college men in Spanish'
hospitals had told him that they
