Co-operating with the College of

were assembled the members and
guests, Lieutenant Gordon T. Waite,

snapped pictures of the assemblage.
After taking several pictures the
plane again flew high in tihe air and
performed for its watchers. As the
party members gazed into the sky the
plane looped the loop time and again.
It was reported that there were sev-
eral people frightened by this who
were both motoring and walking down
Washtenaw avenue. The plane actu-
ally descended so low that a party in
an auto feared collision with it.
