Legislature Passes Bill Prohibiting
Hovering Over Assemblies At
Less Than 1,WO Feet
Prohibiting "the operating of flying
machines over open air assemblies of
people at a height of less than 1,500
feet from the ground," a bill has been
passed by the present special session
of the state legislature at Lansing
which will prevent "stunt" flyers from
endangering the lives of spectators
at Ferry field during Michigan foot-
ball games.
The bill, which was introduced by
Rep. Charles A. Sink, of Ann Arbor,
and passed by both houses, is the first
statute to be written in the law books
of the state of Michigan having to do
with the regulation of airplane traflic
cr the use of airplanes. It renders
offenders liable to a fine of from $10
to $100, or 90 days in jail, or both.
An amendment was made to the
bill in the House, which had the ap-
proval of Mr. Sink, and which' pro-
vides that the law shall not apply
over flying fields, or when exhibition
or stunt flying is in progress.
The new law applies throughout the
state, but is primarily intended to stop
the practice of aviators advertising
various, products flying low over the
heads of persons attending football
games at Ferry field.
In 1921, a bill was introduced in the
state Senate by Sen. George Condon,
of Detroit, to regulate the traffic and
operation of airplanes and other air-
.going vehicles, but it failed to pass.

Meal Ticket At Lower Rate Sug.
gested; Wearing Off Of Novelty
Of Patronage Cited
Investigating the condition of the
Union, in order to crystalize the
charges circulating on the campus,
but never reported to the proper offi-
cials, more than 30 chosen students
met with the committee appointed to
look into the Union's financial con-
dition and find a method of improve-
ment, yesterday afternoon at the
Union . The meeting was called by
Prof. Henry C. Anderson, chairman
of the committee.
Among the reported charges opened
to discussion were those concerning
the handling of both the main dining
room and the taproom, the quality and
price of the food served, the condition
of the various departments, including
the cigar and candy stand, barber
shop, swimming pool, bowling alleys,
pool and billiard room, and soda foun-
tain. The conduct of Union dances,
and the courtesy and appearance of
Union employees were also looked in-
to in regard to possible means of im-
provement. All of these questions
were contained in a questionnaire,
which the committee intended sending
to all members of the Union, but
which was abandoned due to lack of
time and money.
Students, whose names are with-
held because of the nature of the
meeting, volunteered information con-
cerning the past laxity in the conduct
of the building and suggested im-
provements. Chief among the depart-
ments censured was the main dining
room, where charges of poor service
and unnecessarily high prices were
made, However ,many of the students
present refuted the accusations and
praised both the meals and the ser-
One student declared that, while
compiling board rates for visiting
athletic teams, he learned that the
Union price, im his experience, was
much higher per plate than local res-
taurants estimates of the same menu.
Among the reasons advanced in refu-
tation that Union chefs are more ex-
pert and consequently more expen-
sive, that the equipment must be car-
ried through vacations and during the
summer at a loss, and that the over-
head expense is too great. Several
students advocated lower prices, even
at a loss, and an intensive publicity
campaign to combat the seemingly
traditional neglect of the Union by
the student body ,hoping to make up
the loss in revenue through an in-
crease in patronage.
The issuance of a meal ticket at a
slightly reduced rate, an arrangement
similar to those in other restaurants
in the city, was suggested. Plans for
lowering prices to Union members
producing' membership cards, but not
(to outsiders, were also discussed.
The reduction of Union receipts
"throughout the building was laid to
the wearing off of the novelty that
brought patrons to the Union when it
was first built. The drop in the pool
and billiard room was attributed to
the fact that students do not play
these games as much as they did in
the past.
The meeting was called after the
announcement that the committee was
meeting and would welcome the testi-
mony of those dissatisfied with the
present state of affairs, printed in The

Daily, had brought but one man before
the meetings. All possible criticisms
will be investigated before the final
recommendation of the committee will
be submitted.

ried subjects as evolution and rheto-

Prof. Carl L. Hubbs, curator of fishes

Professor Hubbs first presented his
