Students at the University of Michigan wish you success

eration can be an important factor in keeping peace.
Michigan hopes to do its part by aiding in the rehabilita-

lishing contact with students of all nations to foster friendship

however, said his letter of resignation,

Lecturer Tells
Of Differences
In Economies
"The Russian economy differs from
capitalist economies qualitatively as
well as in the quantity of government
regulation," Vladimir Kazakevich said
yesterday in a lecture in Rackham
Government planning of industrial
production is one of these qualitative
differences, he said. Scarcity of labor
is one of the results of this planned
economy, since the plan expands
faster than the population.
When production is planned, prices
and consumption must also be plan-
ned, Kazakevich said. This results in
a domination of the law of supply
ind demand which controls capital-
ist economies.
Collectivized agriculture is another
characteristic of Soviet Economy, he
said. Agriculture in Russia is organ-
ized into collective farms, which are
run partly under socialist and partly
under private ownership, and Soviet
farms which are agricultural facto-
ries run by the government in which
workers are paid according to what
they produce..
Russia's biggest problem is to in-
crease its per capita production which
is still much lower than that of cap-
italist countries. Labor productivitiy
in the United States is one and one
half times more efficient than Rus-
sia's, Kazakevich said.
Choral Union
Will Present
Pianist Uniiisk y
Featuring Prokofieff's "Sonata No.
7, Op.83," the third Choral Union
concert will be presented by Alexan-
der Uninsky, distinguished Russian
pianist, at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Hill
The program will open with three
Scarlatti sonatas to be followed by
the Beethoven "Sonata in E-flat ma-
jor, Op.31, No. 3." A group of Chopin
selections, including the "Nocturne in
D-flat major," "Waltz in G-fiat" and
three etudes, three Debussy composi-
tions and Liszt's "Spanish Rhapsody"
will complete the program.
Hailed as "one of the most remark-
able of present day virtuosi" by the
New York Herald Tribune, Uninsky
will make his first Ann Arbor appear-
ance as a part of his second trans-
continental recital tour. Within two
seasons in the United States the Rus-
sion pianist has skyrocketed to a
place among the major concert at-
tractions in this country.
At thirty-four, Uninsky has an ex-
citing history which began in Kiev.
He was graduated from the Paris
Conservatory at seventeen, won
the International Chopin Concurse
in 1932, subsequently concertized
throughout Europe and South Amer-

Varsity NightTo Sta
* _________________

Joe Gentile and Ralph Binge,
wacky mimics who have made insult-
ing advertising pay in six zero figures
for thirteen years on "The Early
Morning Frolic," will head the line up
for Varsity Night next Friday, Nov.
They also will broadcast their reg-
ular program from 6 to 9:30 a. m.,
Saturday over station CKLW from
the Union ballroom.
Gentile and Binge last appeared
here in 1942 at an IFC Vanities show,
and Varsity Night will find them em-
ceeing again at Hill Auditorium. Any-
thing can happen when they take
over the stage to interview Tom Har-
mon, Bob Westfall, and Hal New-
houser. Even the instrumentally arm-
ed might of Professor William D.
Revelli and the University Concert
Band will have difficulty in coping
with the two impudent screwballs.
Spectators at the broadcast
should tell their friends to tune in,
because they can expect to be drag-
ged to the mike, willing or not, and
more than likely be thrown out of
the ballroom to the sound of a rip-
ping shirt (courtesy of the sound
effects man), after being preposter-
ously insulted by Gentile and Binge.
An ex-bookkeeper and dance hall
manager, Joe Gentile and his child-
hood pal, Ralph Binge teamed up
together in 1932. Binge was formerly
a plumber's helper, an amateur boxer,
and a door to door salesman.
The two comics are favorites of
Dr. Alexander G. Ruthven. On one
occasion, Dr. Ruthven asked them to
help him find a horse that had stray-
ed from his stables. Gentile and

At this meeting, which is open to
