NAVAL INQUIRY COURT HEARS
VIVI) WORD PICTURE OF
Observer Testifies That Fa~ure Of
Two Engines Drew Ship Into
(By the Associated Press)
Lakehurst, N. J., Sept. 24.-A much
more vivid word picture of the wreck-
ing of the airship Shenandoah than
any heretofore given together with
important evidence bearing on at
least one possible contributing cause
of the disaster, was presented here
today to the Naval Court of Inquiry.
High lights in todays developments
were; testimony of Col. C. G. Hall,
U. S. A., observor on board, that the
failure of two of the Shenandoah's
engines made more probable the draw-
ing of the ship into the vortex of
the storm which wrecked her.
More definite testimony that the
ship actually began breaking in two,
N before the control car fell, carrying
Commander Zachary Lansdowne and
other officers and men to their death.
Evidence that the Shenandoah be-
gan to break up when arrested after
a fall of nearly 2,000 feet.
Declarations of two witnesses that
Commander Lansdowne had not been
reluctant to make the flight at the
time it was undertaken and that he
voiced no dissatisfaction of the itin-
erary fixed by the department.
Introduction of the darograth rec-
ord from the ship indicating that her
first sudden ascent began at 4:26 A.
M. central time on September 3, and
lasted 8 minutes during which she
ascended 1,130 feet; that two minutes
later she began another and more
rapid rise going from 3,016 to 6,065
feet in approximately 10 minutes and
that then she fell abruptly 785 feet
in 3min utes. At that point the daro-
grath failed to functhn and testimony
of some survivors indicate that it was
at this time that the hull gave wvay
just forward of amidships and the
craft broke in two.
While the word picture of the dis-
patches painted by Col. Hall proved I
the most absorbing of all the tesi-
mony, perhaps the most important
from the viewpoint of the purpose of
the inquiry was in respect to the en-
gines, one of which failed because of
a cracked cylinder and the other be-
cause of a lack of 'water.
This plase of the inquiry was in-
troduced by h ear Admiral Hileary
P. Jones president of the court, who
asked what effect the engines failure
had on the failure to escape the line
I believe if it should be possible to
have had the power of our five en-
gines constantly," Col. Hall replied,
"it would have been more probable
that we would not have been drawn
into the vortex of the storm which
wrecked the ship. I do not believe,
however, engine power had any thing
to do with the situation after we got
into the vortex of the storm."'
CHANGES IN ELECTIONS
RECEIYED BY REGISTRAR
Changes in elections were received
at the Registrar's office yesterday, and

same as last year."

tions caii be changed by first year and
special students, only after consulta-
tion with the Committee on Elections.

stances, courses dropped after the

The wearing of the coat inside out,
which was once so popular has been
succeeded by the artificial abbrevia-

has uncovered some new and start-

well as a few pairs of red flannels.
Besides these, the class of '28 has
been trying to teach the new men

their head coverings with some pre-

Enrollment in the School of Busi-
ness Administration has shown a very
encouraging increase over last year,
according to Dean Edmund E. Day.
The total enrollment in the school for
last year was 30, while this year there
are 40 students in the first year course
and 12 in the second year. Three
students from other institutions are in
the second year course, and in the
fist year courses are about four men
holding degrees from other schools.
As the school was first started at
the University a year ago, this is the
first year in which it has offered a full
two-year program leading to the de-
gree of master of business administra-
tion. The school will turn out its
first graduates next June.I
