on Health and Welfare, he referred
to it as a program to reduce "the

economic loss, and dependency; good

Under the baton of Prof. William

the band opened the program with
Johann Sebastian Bach's "Komm
Susser Tod," a chorale number or-
iginally written for organ. The chor-

ale was followed by von Weber's ov-
erture to "Euryanthe."
Featured as euphonium solist was
Donald L. Marrs, '40SM, playing

Professor Of Economics Blames'
U.S. For Present World Problems,

Injured In ction

British And Home Tariffs
Cause Of More, Trouble
Than Dictators, He Says
Since the high tariff barriers of the
United States and Great Britain have
contributed more to the breakdown of
world organization than the actions of
totalitarian nations, it is necessary
than a sound policy of economic and
political cooperation be adopted by
these two countries, Prof. John Bell
Condliffe of the London School of
Economics and former member of the
Economic Intelligence Service of the
League of Nations, declared in a
University lecture yesterday.
Speaking before 1,000 persons in
the Graduate School Auditorium,
Professor Condliffe emphasized that
the whole situation today has its roots
in the opening of world markets by
the British merchant marine in the
nineteenth century and the subse-
quent abdication by the British of
their policy of internationalism. In
the nineteenth century, he pointed
out, there was a great stimulation of
trade between the nations of the
world induced by Great Britain. This
trade pivoted on London, with Ster-
ling the basic medium of exchange
Three Student
Soloists Appear
With Symphony
Krieger, Page And Wolfe
Presented In A Concert
By University Orchestra
Ruth Krieger, '39SM, Burton Page,
'40SM, and James Wolfe, '42SM ap-
peared as solists with the Univesity
Symphony Orchestra under the direc-
tion of Thor M. Johnson of the School
of Music, in a concert at 8:3 p.m.
yesterday in Hill Auitorium.
The orchestra opened the program
with a chorale group transcribed for
orchestra by Marion E. McArtor,
Grad., a student in advanced orches-
tration classes.
This was followed by Bach's Alle-
gro from "Concerto in D minor for
Piano and Orchestra," with Mr. Wolfe
at the piano. Miss Krieger, first
violoncellist with the orchestra,
played the solo in Haydn's Adagio
from "Concerto in D major for Vio-
loncello and Orchestra."
Outstanding solist of the evening
was Mr. Page, who played the solo
part in Caesar Franck's "Symphonic
Variations for Piano and Orchestra."
After intermission the 'University
Girls' Glee Club joined with the or-
chestra in presenting Mahler's "Sym-
phony No. 3 in D minor" for chorus,
soli, and orchestra. Lorraine Tom-,
merson, soprano, and Hope Bauer
Eddy, contralto, sang the incidental
solos. This was the 'first public ap-
pearance of the Girls' Glee Club this

and the British merchant marine su-
preme on the seas.
This development of trade en-
lightened man in every country. Ma-
terial standards of living were
heightened, and the poor were able
to enjoy what had formerly been con-
sidered luxuries.
Today this system is ended. Eng-
land is no longer the center of trade
with her policies dictated by inter-
national considerations. Instead,
Professor Condliffe said, England has,
since 1931, become a protectionist
nation with hermpolicies dictated
Wholly by national considerations.
Never again, he said, will England be
able to carry the burden of organizing
a world trading system. Whether
any other country will be able to do
so, is a question for debate, he in-
dicated, yet it is true that interna-
tional prosperity depends upon col-
lective effort and the most powerful
members of the community of na-
tions must naturally take a promin-
ent part in this effort.
It will be a difficult taks to rebuild
world organization in this day be-
cause of changed economic-political
relations, he pointed out. The policy
of dictator nations of complete sub-
ordination of all individual rights foi
the glory of the state is an important
part of the breakdown. But it must
be remembered, he said, that this
policy is but a logical outgrowth of
the economic nationalism of the kind
pratiedby the United States and
England under which vested interests
protect themselves by appealing to
the national pride of the people. The
dictators have indicated to the de-
mocracies, he said, that there is no
hope of a compromise solution to the
problem. It is to be one system or
the other.
The application of economic sanc-
tions is effective, he said, but it works
too slowly. Also, past experience has
shown us that in the face of a threat
of war voiced by the nation against
whom sanctions were imposed has
made the nations imposing the sanc-
tions back down. For sa'ctions to be

It was Michigan's fourth confer-

The Wolverines, after being behind

Jimmy Hull, Ohio captain who
counted 14 points in each of the three
previous conference games, boosted
that figure to 16 tonight to lead the
scoring list. Tom Harmon and' Char-
ley Pink, Michigan forwards, led the
Wolverines with nine each, although
Pink played but a couple of minutes
of the last half before going out
with an injured back.
The invaders held a 23-20 advan-

it to 25-20 as the second session
opened with a sensational shot from

Choral Union Concert Tomorrow
Presents Tunts O .The Keyboard'

Two heads are better than one
and four hands are better than two.
That would seem to be the motto
of Bartlett and Robertson, well-
known British' piano team, who ap-
pear here tomorrow in the seventh
Choral Union program of the sea-
son. Mr. and Mrs. Rae Robertson in
private life, this world-famous duo
has been referred to as the "Lunts
of the Keyboard."
Ethel Bartlett was born in Lon-
don; Rae Robertson was raised in
the Scottish Highlands. The pair
met as students at the Royal Acad-
emy of Music, and both admit that
"if it wasn't love at first sight, it
was dangerously close." They have
been married for 13 years, and, since
their debut in America, 10 years ago,
neither has given a solo perform-
They have appeared with many
famous orchestras, having climaxed
their musical career last year when
they were invited to participate in the
London Music Festival under the
baton of Arturo Toscanini. They
admit, however, that John Barbir-
olli, conductor of the New York Phil-
harmonic-Symphony Orchestra, is

the Hebrides where they now spend
their vacations. They have been able
to keep the exact location of their
private "paradise" secret thus far,
claiming, "someone else will go there
and buy it before we have a chance
to do so."
Bartlett and Robertson get a lot
of fun out of their work. Showing no
temperamental flares or publicity-
directed eccentricities, they have en-
deared themselves to the people of
two continents. "The best loved piano
duettists in the world," is the ver-
dict of the Boston Transcript.
They have no favorite composer;
the work of Bach is especially suit-
able for two piano work and, there-
fore, the programs include much of
his work. Their programs are notable
for their variety and are devised to
appeal to all musical tastes.
Since this concert has been substi-
tuted for the Budapest University
Chorus, who were forced to cancel
their engagement because of Euro-
pean political conditions, patrons are
asked to present coupon seven, read-
