Americans Are
Best Audiences,
Robertson Says
Reactions of audiences to musical
reeitals differ greatly in all parts of
the world but few can deny .that the
Americans are the most exhuberant,
Rae Robertson, male half of the noted
'artlett and Robertson twp-piano.
team, declared in an interview yes-
terday describing his career as a con-
cert pianist.
Both Mr. Robertson and Ethel
Bartlett, who is Mrs. Robertson in
real life, have been professional per-
formers since their fifth birthdays
and have toured all over the world,
first as soloists and then together.
"The people of Holland are prob-
ably more fond of music than any
others," Mr. Robertson claimed, "yet
they very seldom applaud a presen-
tation. The only way one can tell if
they have been favorably received is
by the audience's standing up at the
Very and of the performance. A mu-
sician never knows whether he's liked
or not until he's finished.
"On the other hand," he went on
to "say, "Americans will frequently
applaud an.artist even during a selec-
tion if they like it and usually cheer
performers whom they enjoy." He
also remarked that the English and
.;Scotch are very much like the Dutch
but that the Latins react similarly
to the Americans.
Although this is only the second
time that the Robertsons have visited
Ann Arbor they have played in this
kpuntry for ten years. Last season
they came here as a substitute for
ICirsten Flagstad but they were "first
choice" for the 1940 Choral Union

THURSDAY, FEB. 15, 1940
VOL. L. No. 95
To Federal Income Tax Payers: The
Federal Commissioner of Internal
Revenue has now ruled that lodging
and meals furnished are "compensa-
tion" or "salary" within the meaning
of the Revenue Act and must be in-
cluded by individuals who make re-
turns, if such form of-compensation
is furnished them by the University.
While there is no express statement,
we are advised that it will ordinar-
ily be satisfactory if room allowance
is reported at $144 per year and board
at $216 per. year, or an average total
of $30 per month. Where less than
three meals- per day are furnished
a proportionate reduction in the
amount reported may be made.
Shirley W. Smith
To All Faculty Members:
1. Life Annuities or life insurancej


either or both may be purchased by
members of the faculties from the
Teachers Insurance and Annuity As-
sociation of America and premiums
for either life Annuity or life Insur-
ance, or both, may be deducated at
the written request of the policy-
holder from the monthly payroll of
the University, and in such cases will
be remitted directly by the Univer-
sity, on the monthly basis. The
secretary's office has on file blank
applications for annuity policies, or
life insurance policies, and rate books,
for the convenience of members of
the University staff desiring to make
use of them.
2. The Regents at their meeting of
January, 1919 agreed that any mem-
ber of the Faculties entering the serv-
ice of the University since Nov. 17,
1915, may purchase an Annuity from
the above-named Association, toward
the cost of which the Regents would
make an equal contribution up to
five per cent of his annual salary
not in excess of $5,000, thus, within
the limit of five per cent of the salary,
doubling the amount of the Annuity
3. The purchase of an Annuity
under the conditions mentioned in
(2) above is made a condition of em-

ployment in the case of all members
of the Faculties, except instructors,1
whose term of Faculty service doest
not antedate, the - University year
1919-1920. With instructors of less{
than three years' standing the pur-
chase of an Annuity is optional.
4. Persons who have become mem-
bers of the faculties since Nov. 17,
1915 and previous to the year 1919-
1920 have the option of purchasing
annuities under the University's con-
tributory plan.
5. Any person in the employ of the
University may at his own cost pur-
chase annuities from the association
or any of the class of faculty mem-
bers mentioned above may purchase
annuities at his own cost in addition
to those mentioned above. The Uni-
versity itself, however, will contribute
to the expense of such purchase of
annuities only as indicated in sections
2, 3 and 4 above.
6. Any person in the employ of the
University, either as a faculty mem-
ber or otherwise, unless debarred by
his medical examination may, at his
own expense, purchase life insurance
from the Teachers Insurance and An-
nuity Association at its rate. All life
insurance premiums are borne by the
individual himself. The University
makes no contribution toward life
insurance and has nothing to do with
the life insurance feature except that
it will if desired by the insured, de-
duct premiums monthly and remit
the same to the association.
7. The University accounting of-

fices will as a matter of accommoda- case of the so-called "academic roll"
tion to members of the faculties or the premium payments for tie
employes of the -University, who de- months of July, August, September,
sire to pay either annuity premium s and- October will be deducted from
or insurance premiums monthly, de- the double payroll of June 30. While
