7;500 Pipes Are Played Daily
By Organist Palmer Christian

By HARRY LEVINE
Seventy-five hundred pipes may be
a pipe dream to you, but to Prof.
Palmer Christian, University organ-
ist and member of the music school
faculty, it's just part of his daily
finger exercises.
Professor Christian, who will give
his third recital of the current fall
Wednesday afternoon series at 4:15
p.m. tomorrow in Hill Auditorium,
4'xplained many of the mechanisms of
the Frieze Memorial organ in an in-
terview yesterday.
The organ pipe chamber, which is
18 feet wide, 40 feet high and
over 50 feet long, looked cramped
asProfessor Christian was forced to
bend down in pointing out the dif-
ferent pipes. Tapping the base of a
huge wooden pipe encasement which
resembed a giant pillar more than an
organ pipe, he compared its thirty-
two foot height with another pipe not
far away which measured about one
half an inch. The respective rumble
and squeak made the difference even
more impressive.
Later, after emerging from the
chamber, Professor Christian an-
For tomorrow's program, Profes-
sor Christian has chosen a progra
including ,the works of Handel,
Caesar Franck, Maleingreau and
Doty.
Representing Handel will be four
pieces from the Water Music Suite.
E. William Doty, whose "Mist" will
be played is a former student and
faculty member here. He is now
Dean of Fine Arts at the University,
of Texas.
nounced the formation of a new Sun-
day afternoon series of recitals to
start next semester.
Because of the almost half-century
Ann Arbor tradition of reserving
Wednesday afternoon for organ re-
citals, Wednesday Is still the day Uni-
versity organ recitals aregiven. How-
ever, -there has been an increasing
demand for Professor Christian to
give. his recitals on a day when more
people will have an opportunity to
attend.
Also announced was the appear-

genial mood when they arrived at
the State Department. They posed

good naturedly for many pictures.
But to questioning reporters they had
little to say.
To one query Kurusu replied by
gesturing toward Nomura with the
remark: "There is the Japanese Am-
bassador. 'Ask him. I am only the
Ambassador's assistant."
At the White House more pictures
were taken, but reporters' questions
were dodged with even more dexter-
ity. Kurusu, who in Manila had used
baseball language in referring to
himself as a pinch hitter, in San
Francisco had said he hoped to
",carry the ball through for a touch-
down" and in Washington had used
the race track term "you be the book-
maker," had no similar sporting
phrase for today.
Meanwhile, in Tokyo, the House of
Representatives gave swift approval
tonight to the government's 3,800.000-
000 yen (nominally $874,000,000) ex-
traordinary military budget and the
press trumpeted that Japanese-Amer-
ican relations "have gone from bad
to worse."

Thursday in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre.
The French production, to appear
here under the auspices of the Art
Cinema League, is the work of Liam
Q'Flaherty. author of 1935's prize
winner, "The Informer."
Loth a psychological study of the
crazed killer Ferriter and a blast
against church and legal censorship,
the film has aroused storms of con-
troversy in Europe's Fascist countries
and in New York State. It was made,
in pre-war Paris in 1937.
O'Flaherty's novel ran a rough
course before it finally appeared in
America. It was first presented on
the New York stage in 1936, and is
easily one of the most subtly pro-
vocative films of the decade.

U.S. Captures
Richly Laden
German Ship
First Nazi Vessel Taken
As American Warship
Blocks Reich Cargo
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.-UP)-
The Navy brought into port today
its first major prize of the battle of
the Atlantic-the disguised German
motor ship Odenwald, loaded with
rubber and automobile tires destined
for the Reich or Nazi-dominated
Europe.
Seized in the South Atlantic No-
vember 6 in the guise of the Ameri-
can merchant ship Willmoto, and
damaged in an attempt at scuttling,
the vessel limped into the harbor of
San Juan, Puerto Rico, with a naval
crew aboard.
Prompt legal action was antici-
pated to forfeit the Odenwald, a craft
of 9,098 tons, along with its cargo of
more than 3,000 tons of rubber, for
violating' laws of the sea. The status
of the crew of 12 officers and 33 men,
who were taken into naval custody,
remained undetermined.
The Navy said investigation dis-
blosed the ship had left Yokohama,
Japan, two months earlier and had
sailed around Cape Horn at the tip
of South America with the intention
3f running the British blockade. Its
destination was believed to be Bor-
leaux, Occupikd France.
The Navy's account gave the im-
pression that the first suspicions that
the vessel was sailing under false
colors were aroused by actions of the
crew after the Odenwald was first
sighted when 11 miles distant.
Signals of the cruiser, which the
Navy declined to identify, were
ignored. Then, during a subse-
quent conversational exchange shout-
ed through megaphones, the Nazi
crew started throwing over the sides
"a continuous stream of packages."
A boarding party was sent to th1
Odenwald, and then came two ex-
plosions as the attempt to scuttle was
'nade. The German crew hurriedly
put two lifeboats over the side, and
two frightened men lepped into the
water.
Notified of the scuttling attempt,
the warship commander thereupon
sent a salvage crew aboard, and with
"no cooperation at all" from the
Germans, this force succeeded in
making emergency repairs and start-
Ing the engines after an all-day

Somewhere the man she is looking for is sure to be. Perhaps you are the one she tells
her friends about in the dormitory or sorority, and if so, you're a lucky fellow. But
there is no better way of assuring continued interest on her part than seeing that your

personality more than untidy attire; shirts that are wrinkled and soiled, for example.
The .best way of avoiding this is to have your laundering done by a laundry with ex-
