Aiton Calls Attitude Of Neutral
Latins Mirror Of Our Isolation

Harmon's '98' Rolls Again

Calling the neutral countries, Ar-
gentina and Chile, a mirror of our
own hesitant isolationism before the
Japanese attack, Prof. Arthur S. Ai-
ton of the history department yester-
day expressed hope that they "may
yet gravitate into the American sys-

The role of America in Latin Amer-
ica "has been one of convincing the
nations of Hispanic origin that we
shared and respected their passionate
nationalism" and could share defense
of their ideals, Professor Aiton de-
Expressing admiration for the re-
markable work of the State Depart-
ment in welding most of Hispanic
America into an armorplate against
Axis aggression, Professor Aiton
pointed out the extreme distances
and old prejudicial views of the
In an article in the Michigan
Alumnus Quarterly Review, Profes-
sor Aiton reviewed the history of in-
ter-American relations over the peri-
od of nationalistic formation-always
emphasizing the need of instilling
confidence toward America in our
distant southern neighbors.
Of Argentina, Professor Aiton stat-
ed that "abou4t eighty per cent of the
people of Argentina are warmly anti-
Axis." He declared that only a small
majority of wealthy conservatives
were now controlling the opportun-
istically isolationist government.

Featuring music recently published
by the University of Sydney, as well
as other British and American airs
popular in Australia at this time,
Prof. Percival Price will conduct a
Carillon program at 7:15 p.m. today.
The program today will include
three Australian airs by miscellane-
ous authors: "Four Experiments for
the Sydney University Carillon" and
"Preude -Pavan - Pastorale -Pas-
an," by Alexander Burnard; "Fugue"
and "Air for Percival Price," by John
D. Gordon; and the following British
airs: "The Blue Bells of Scotland,"
"Londonderry Air," "Keep the Home

safety of the state, be they nationals
or Axis agents," Professor Aiton said.
In Chile where liberals control the
government, "Rios (the leader of the
leftist coalition) must perforce be
slow to the point of gingerliness, since
a large and influential group in Chile
fear social and economic change
more than barbarous aggressors over-
seas, Professor Aiton declared.
Emphasizing that Chile will fight
only "for reasons strictly in line with
national self-interest," Professor Ai-
ton emphasized that the United
States had injured Chile too many
times to expect idealistic responses.

Support Given
Bomber Fund
Starting with what seemed td be
an insignificant party at the Abe
Lincoln C ooper ative House, the
Bomber - Scholarship project has
grown to campus-wide proportions,
and to date has netted $4,450.08.
A large number of organizations
have cut expenses at dances and
other such affairs in order to con-
tribute even more to the Bomber-
Scholarship than would be possible
One fraternity, Zeta Beta Tau,
passed a resolution assessing those
members who attend its spring for-
mal an extra dollar and fining those
who do not attend the same amount
for the Bomber-Scholarship fund.
Alpha Epsilon Phi cut expenses for
its spring formal and contributed $15
to the fund.
An unusual method of contributing
is being employed by Sigma Phi. Each
active member is contributing 50
(.ents per month.
Phi Delta Phi, a graduate frater-
nity and consequently unable to ben-
Jfit from the scholarships which will
accrue from the fund, has, neverthe-
less, given $113. On the other hand,
Phi Delta Delta, a law fraternity, has
declared itself unable to contribute tc
the fund since the scholarships are
confined to undergraduates.
The goal of $100,000 is still very
far away, admitted Art Rude, '42
chairman of the fund, and he urged
all groups which have not contributed
to do so as soon as possible, and those
which have given something to in-
crease their contributions if at a]l
Lack Of Vacation

month with colds remaining the most
common complaint and 15 cases o
acute appendicitis reported. German
measles continued, but most patient

Seventy-six cases of the measles
and six cases of pneumonia were re-

From all over the country, fromi
Detroit, from New York, from St.r
Louis, people crowded into Hill Audi-
torium yesterday, and the name of c
Sergei Rachmaninoff had plenty to
dowth it.
At 11:00 a.m. yesterday, only three(
hours before his concert, Rachmani-- t
noff drove up to Hill Auditorium,.
regally escorted by Mrs. Rachmani-
noff and his manager. Tall, gaunt,
scmber. he greeted everybody with;
the same solemn expression, as Mae-{
stro Ormandy and members of the

part of the concert with the orches-
tra. He sat down and listened to the
orchestra go thlroughi several of his
orchest'al pie,-s. Every so often he'd
rise out of his chair and flail his
arms at the orchestra, supplementing
Ormandy's conducting. The rest of
the while he sat and beat time with
his feet.
Later, after rehearsal, he walked
across campus quite unnoticed and
enjoyed the sunshine. Once he stop-
ped and looked at Angell Hall.
"'What's that building for?" Told of
its classroom value, he nodded his
