Dean's Office
Gives General
Auto Use Ban
Ignorance Of 'U' Rulings
Will Not Be Excused;
Registration Of Stored
Automobiles- Required
Usual Exceptions
To Be Considered
The Dean of Students Office offers
the following general interpretations
of the Automobile Regulation and
suggests that students retain this
article for future reference because
violations will not be excused on the
basis of misunderstanding.
Particular attention is called to
the section relating to stored cars.
These cars must be registered at the
Dean's office without delay and fail-
ure to comply with this requirement
will be considered in the nature of a
The personal and social usage of
notor vehicles is denied all students
who come under the Ruling, but care-
ful consideration will be given to any
student who applies for such neces-
sary driving needs as: health, busi-
hess, family use, commuting, chauf-
fering, etc.
The Automobile Regulation will be-
come effective at 8 a.m. Monday, Oct.
5, and all students must refrain from
driving until permits have been ob-
tained at Room 2, University Hall. 1
1. Regents Rule: "No student in
attendance at the University from
and after the beginning of the first
semester of the University year 1927-
28 shall operate any motor vehicle.
In exceptional and extraordinary1
cases in the discretion of the Dean
of Students this rule may be relaxed."t
The regulation governs the use of aj
car as well as the operation of one;
consequently it is not permissible for
a student to use his car or a family-t
owned car for social, personal or any1
other purposes when the car is drivenC
by any person who is not a membert
of his immediate family.

Varsity Band Performs Before Minnesota Game Crowd

Marching Band's Fine Reputation
Iesult OfLong Hours Of Work

It's morale which builds toward vic-
tory on the battlefront, but on the
football fields it's called spirit. And
when "spirit" is mentioned at Michi-
gan, make way for the University
Marching Band - for that's their
It didn't just happen that way. In
the past it's been the result of untold
rehearsals and drills, of long and
careful planning. And to guarantee
that this year will be no different,

of the University Bands, is issuing

2. A student receiving permission
to use an automobile must adhere
strictly to the terms of his permit.
Before any driving is done, student
permit tags must be attached to the
State license plates in such a manner
as to insure easy visibility. Any act
of driving without permission from
this office, or with permit tags un-
attached, will be considered a viola-
tion of the Ruling and will be dis-
ciplined accordingly. .
3. All permits must be renewed
when the 1943 State license plates
are required or as soon as the new
tags are purchased. At such time new
sets of permit tags bearing the cur-
rent license number will be issued at
no additional cost to the holders. All
permit tags obtained this fall will be
void as soon as it is unlawful to drive
with 1942 license plates.
. 4. Where any appreciable saving
in transportation costs is realized,
students may drive their cars to Ann
Arbor and place them in dead stor-
age until vacation periods. This pro-
vision will not be available to stu-
dents whose homes are relatively
close to the University, for example,
cities within a 150-mile radius of Ann
Arbor. Such an arrangement when
approved, will not entitle the owners
9f the cars to any special considera-
tion with respect to temporary or
week-end driving privileges. Full in-
formation on stored cars, including
name and adidress of owner and the
location of storage, must be reported
to this office before the beginning of
the school year. After that date,
cars may not be brought to Ann Ar-
bor, unless the circumstances are
first approved by this office.
5. The operation of a car by an
out-of-town student, in and about
his home will not be considered a
matter of concern to the University
authorities provided:
(a) The car is not driven
through or within the immediate
vicinity of Ann Arbor.
(b) Such driving does not in-
volve a violatioi of any law or
traffic ordinance.

groups may apply for exemption

Serge Jaroff Will Conduct
Choral Group In First
Of Ten Presentations
Soloists, Orchestras
Also On Program
The Don Cossack Chorus, under
the direction of Serge Jaroff, noted
conductor, will open the sixty-fourth
annual Choral Union Series October
20 in Hill Auditorium.
Maintaining the high standard of
presentations of former years, ethe
University Musical Society has an-
nounced ten numbers for the current
series, six of which will be solo reci-
tals by eminent celebrities of inter-
national reputation, an outstanding
choral organization, and three major
symphonies and orchestras.
Serge Jaroff, world-famous choral
conductor, welded his group together
from soldiers of the National Army
who were imprisoned during the Rus-
sian Revolution. Exiled from Mother
Russia and traveling on League of
Nations transports, they have toured
the world giving concerts in Europe,
England, Australia and America, and
their record of more than 4,000 con-
certs has never been equalled.
Mezzo-Soprano Here
Gladys Swarthout, whose voice has
thrilled audiences in great metropoli-
tan centers all over the world, will
present the second of the Choral Un-
ion Concerts October 29. American by
birth and training, she occupies a
foremost place at the Metropolitan
Opera and has participated in major
capacities in practically all the other
more important American opera com-
panies. Miss Swarthout appeared
nce before in Ann Arbor in the May
Festival, but this is her first appear-
ance in the Choral Union Series.

Orchestra are no strangers to Ann

the helm of this band of. players for
nearly a decade and each season tours
a large portion of the country, always
bettering his already fine reputation.

sixteen, Albert Spalding's career has
since then been one of successive tri-
umphs. An American by birth, his
achievements have been recognized
throughout the musical world, and he
is one of Europe's favorite visiting
artists. Honored by royalty with com-
mand performances and justifiably
alled "the aristocrat of the violin",
Spalding will appear in the fourth
oncert on November 19.
Beethoven Interpreter
Artur Schnabel's brilliant Beetho-
ven interpretations have won for him
international recognition as the
greatest living interpreter of this
composer. He is in a sense a self-
rained virtuoso, for his years of pre-
liminary training are few, and, al-
though he began concertizing at the
early age of fifteen, he has stood at
the pinnacle of artistic reknown for
nearly forty years. He will appear in
Ann Arbor Thursday, December 3.
On December 9 Serge Koussevitsky
and his Boston Symphony Orchestra
will appear before Ann Arbor audi-
ences for the 12th consecutive time.
Performing here for the first time in
1890, they appeared occasionally until
1930, since which time they have been
annual visitors. Their return is await-
d by students, faculty and music-
loving public with anticipation, for
their visits have come to be regarded

is an essential part of University cul-
tural life.
Josef Hoffman, noted pianist, who
will open the new year with a concert
January 18, has been referred to as
the "youngest old man" in concert
business. He made his debut when he
was only nine years of age and has
been acclaimed by press and public
everywhere for more than fifty years.
Heifetz Returns
As a lad in his teens, Jascha Heifetz
was already startling New York and
the entire country. Ann Arbor audi-
ences will welcome him back to the
scene of many of his earlier triumphs
when he appears here in the Choral
Jnion Series February 16; for he has

JAY ALLEN, will speak here on
November 5 with fellow foreign cor-
respondent Louis Fischer.
