More than 70,000 applications for
seats for University football games
this fail were mailed from the Ath-

the largest number of applications
ever sent out, according to Harry
Tillotson, business manager of the
Association. More than 1,000 ap-
plications were sent to stadium
bond holders recently.
All applicants will be permitted

to order four seats this year for the
major games. Formerly limits were
set at two and three seats per ap-
plicant for the important games.
Applications should not be re-
turned before August 20, Tillotson

Sher M. Quraishi, '32, of the
journalism school, a native of India
who is strongly interested in the
present controversy n that country,
was the featured speaker Monday
night at the Detroit Times broad-
cast over radio station WJR of De-
troit. Quraishi discussed India,
British rule in India, and the cam-
paign of civil disobedience.
Explaining his viewpoint of the
conflict in India, Quraishi remarked
that he was "not so much anti-
British as pro-Indian."
In the course of his talk he was
asked: "What is the basic and fun-

damental complaint of the people
of India against British occupa-
tion? Is it economic, political, or
"It is all three of there," he an-
swered, " and above and beyond
these three is the most important
objection -spiritual objection. No
country can find its soul or full
development unless it is free. The
British did not find their own de-
velopment under the occupation of
the Romans."
The people of India, Quraishi
pointed out, feel they are at great-
er disadvantage in the matter of
prosperity now than they were in
the seventeenth century.
Quraishi believes that the revo-
lution in India will succeed and
that the country will gain its in-
dependence ultimately. Of the In-
dian people he said, "At least 60
per cent are with Gandhi in his
non-violent revolution."
Quraishi was born in India but
has become a member of the
Friends church because of his paci-
fistic beliefs. He is an engineer and
has lived in the United States for
ten years. He was employed for five
years by the Ford Motor company.

Sand and Prayers
Used to Get Rain
(By Associated Press)
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 5.-
Having failed to get GovernorI
Pollard of Virginia to call for
state-wide prayers for the relief
from the drought, Dan S. Hol-
lenga, business manager of the
Alexandria Chamber of Com-
merce, has ordered 200 pounds
of rain-making powder from
Arid, N. M.
The powder is to be sprayed
from an airplane on clouds over
Alexandria in the hope that it
will condense them into rain.
In addition, Hollenga sent a
plea to President Hoover asking
him to issue a proclamation for
nation-wide prayer "to ask di-
vine aid for rain."

A Review by Wililam J. Gorman
In the first half of last night's
recital there was as much musician-
ship and quite as much good mu-
sic as one gets at an ordinary Chor-
al Union Concert. A series of fac-
ulty concerts of this splendid cal-
ibre would considerably richen the
regular school year.
Guy Mailer opened (delightfully
with a Mozart Sonata. One sus-
pects, now, that of the duo that
gave us such splendid Mozart dur-
ing the May Festival, Mr. Maier
supplied both the direction and the}
correct temperament (what Mr.
Frantz called "spontaneity"). Thre
is in his solo Mozart good taste d
refinement (perfectly polished mel-
odic lines). But he also feels the
rythm of Mozart. There is the gay-
ety in his playing (the gayety of
temperament if you will): the per-
fec)1y organized (yet none the less
gay) gayety of a perfectly executed
dance pattern. Indeed, Ezra Pound
has suggested that a considerable
portion of what we call the charm

directed motion which his musicI
imparts. (The dance origins of the l
sonata form might suggest this).I
At any rate, Mr. Maier is deli-
cate (in the melodies) and gay (in'
the rythms): which means very'
good Mozart and almost the very
best of music. His "Perpetual Mo-
tion" was energetic but quite too
hurried; it sounded nervous rath-
er than vivacious.
Mr. Besekersky chose to make
his Ann Arbor debut as head of
the violin department in the eigh-
teenth century. It was a bold
thing to do; as Ann Arbor taste is
probably still in the nineteenth.
Yet that it was the sensible thing
to do, the perfection and interest
of his first group testified.
The music of Bach or one of his
lesser contemporaries like Veva-
cini is a perfect place to exhibit
one's virtuosity. Because it is pure
music. That is, all its strength lies
in the notes and reveals itself in
the vitalized, articulate playing of

pression. All that is needed is

He said his company had been
making fire brick for six years and
a total sales in that period to Alle-
gheny county and the s t a t e
amounted to "only $375,000."
Neither Davis nor Brown solicit-
ed any money from him, he said,
adding he had been asked to con-
tribute since the primaries to make
a deficit but refused, saying: "My
God, don't you think I've been tak-
en for enough?"
Appointments Fill Highest Posts
on Army Staff and Marines.
(By Assoi ated Press)
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5.-Presi-
dent Hoover today appointed Ma-
jor-General Douglas MacArthur
chief of staff of the Army and
Brigadier General Ben H. Fuller,
commandant of the Marine corps.
In raising the two to the highest
peace-time posts in their respec-
tive fields, the President lifted
them above the heads of several
officers who topped them in rank.
Both have seen long service in the
field in various parts of the world.
General MacArthur was the sen-
ior officer in the army, however,
with sufficient time left before his
retirement to complete the full
four-year term as chief of staff.
Seven other officers topped him in
rank, but all will reach the retire-
ment age of 64 within the next
four years.
The promotion of General Mac-
Arthur to the full rank of general
will become effective Nov. 20 upon
the retirement of General Charles
E. T. Summerall. General Fuller
will assume permanent command
of the Marine corps immediately
succeeding the late Major-General
Wendell C. Neville. He has been

was not quite as atractive. Mr.

was justification: music of the "bet-

call it.
