VOL. XXXVI. No. 43
Charges Made By Air Officer At San
Antonio Are Repeated, Amplified
And Defended At Trial
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.-Another
bombardment of the administration's
aviation policy, accompanied by the
lowering of bars to admit testimony
intended to justify Col. William Mit-
chell's previously published attack,
marked today the opening of his de-
fense before the general court-martial
trying him on charges specifying con-
duct to the prejudice of good order
and military discipline.
From the time court met until it
recessed tonight, the defense had its
way, being over-ruled just once and
then on a minor objection. It thrust
ar22,000-word statement into the rec-
S ords without opposition, supported
the air officer's San Antonio declara-
tion that the war and navy depart-
ments were incompetent, criminally
negligent and almost treasonable in
their conduct of the national defense, i
and put the first of its witnesses on
the stand. The latter were permitted
to testify on air service controversy
Repeated objections raised by the
prosecution as to the admissability of
the witnesses' testimony were reject-
ed by the court. It was only when
Rep. Frank R. Reid, chief civilian de-
fense counsel, asked Maj. Charles
Spatz for his opinion of army general
staff officers, that the prosecution's
objection was sustained.
The opening statement of the de-
fense, comprising 74 closel typewrit-
ten pages, was in effect a detailed I
analysis of Colonel Mitchell's San
Antonio statements on which the
charges against him were based.
Every charge he made at that time
against the war and navy departments
was repeated, amplified, and defended
on the ground that it was true and
could be proved.
"History And Development Of Trans-
portation" Is First Topic
Prof. John S. Worley of the civil
engineering department opened the
series of illustrated lectures on "His-
tory and Development of Transporta-
tion," which he will give during the
coming semester, yesterday, in room
348 of the West Engineering building.
The opening lecture which was, at-
tended by more than 100 students of
the department partially outlined the
material which will be presented in
the entire group.
The subject was divided both ac-
cording to the media through, or on
which, the vehicle travels and the fac-
tors which are present in any form of
The lantern slides which were
S-shown after the talk presented vari-
ous forms of transportation, and
aided in outlining the coming ad-

dresses. In the future, slides will be
shown of early and little known meth-
ods of carriage. The views have been1
compiled after a very thorough inves-
tigation of the history of transporta-
tion, covering more than 6,000 years.
Professor Worley, who is vice pres-
ident and general manager of the
hlabirshaw Cable and Wire company
of New York city, holds a part time
professorship. By 'an arrangement
with the University, he visits Ann Ar-
bor several days of each month, dur-
ing which he will give his lectures.
The second one of the present igroup
will be given at 8 o'clock this morn-,
ing in room 348 of the West Engineer-
ing building. It will continue the out-
line of the subject matter started yes-
terday. In order that all civil engi-
neers may attend the meeting the 8
o'clock classes in the civil engineer-,
ing department will be dismissed.

President Clarence Cook Little will
address the members of the Senior
literary class when they gather in
convocation at 3:15 o'clock this after-
noon in Natural Science auditorium.
President Little will present his views
and opinion regarding the class me-
morial fund for which a drive is now
being conducted. .
The convocation is being held for
the purpose of acquainting all mem-
bers of the class with the particulars
of the fund and plan to answer such
questions as occur to the various
members of the class. Class officers,
membler's of the memorial committee,
and representatives of the' insurance
company selected to handle the pol-
Gies of the drive will be present and
will explain the plan.
Representatives of the company se-
lectedtl o handle the money by the
University insurance department re-
port that more than 250 policies have
been taken out unsolicited following
the announcement made last week
that such policies would be written
in Alumni Memorial hall. Meetings
with small groups in organized houses
has proven equally successful, it is
reported. In order to complete the
campaign as early as possible, the
convocation for this afternoon has
been called by the class officers.

The plan adopted by the present
senior class seems admirably de-
signed to keep this fine willingness
from being dissipated. Among
other advantages it has two which
are peculiar to it. In the first place,
the memorial fund will almost cl-
lect itself: A saving virtue for the
officers of the class, who will be
relieved of the thankless and some-
times hopless job of hunting down
widely scattered subscriptions. Sec-
ondly, a generous sum will be ac-
cumulated by such a gradual pro-
cess that few will feel it to be a
burden at all.
It seems hardly possible that any
class will adopt another memorial
plan, without first considering this.

the Interfraternity council at its meet-

but no final decision was reached.
Delegites representing the fraterni-

The question will be referred to the

size of the group so that it may be
