Byrd Not Yet Ready
The Fokker niononla ne. "America",
in which Commander Richard E.;
Byrd will attempt the crossing, hasl
not yet completed its factory tests. He
had not intended to leave for several
days so he was not affected one way
or the other by the weather reports.t
Scarr's prediction concerning sev-
eral days of stormy weather increas-
ed the likelihood, however, that when
clearing does come, the American1
flight may be a three-cornered race
with each of the three monoplanes
striving for first nlace.
As Byrd, however, is not "in theI
money," not having entered his planej
for the Orteig prize, and as he has*
said that his flight is to be purely1
for science, he may be content to let
the others go ahead.
The weather report late today was
the most unfavorable of the past
week. Scarr pointed out that he only
furnished the facts, and the fliers
made their own decisions, but he ex-
pressed the hope that they would not
leave until good conditions were in-I.

French Still Hope
PARIS, May 13-The persistent re-
ports from Newfoundland that the
faint humming of an airplane motor
was heard at several points there
Monday has started a revival of
French hopes that the trans-Atlantic
plane of Captain Charles Nungesser
may yet be found.
The feeling, likely as a result of
these reports, is growing that the air- I
e men may have landed somewhere in
Labrador or northern Canada, far
from communication. Dispatches in-
dicatirfg that the Canadian, Newfound-
land and American governments are
doing everything possible to trace the
missing fliers have strengthened theI
hopes that they may yet be found.
The revelation today by Dr. Cortic-
hiato, a close friend of Capt Nunges-j
ser, that the fliers carried sufficient
rations for ten days, also has added i
to the hone that if the aviators land-

to 13unkie, but plans were reing mate
to transfer them to Marksville and
Mansura, since the spreading flood
waters might endanger the water
system of Bunkie. Later it was ex-
pected they would be concentrated at
Marksville and Alexandria where
housing facilities were more abund-
ant and food supplies more easily ob-
Evacuation of Melville, the largest
town in the direct path of the flood,
had started tonight. More than a
thousand were to be moved there. .
The weather bureau at New Orleans
warned that the breaks along Bayou
Des Galises would - not remedy the
situation along the main stream be-
tween the mouth of Old river and
New Orleans, although it reiterated
the statement that the artificial
crevasses below the present city
would prevent the river from exceed-
ing a stage of more than 21 feet here.
Cane Parishes Hit
The sweep of the waters escaping
from Bayou Des Glaises crevasses
will take them into Avoyelles. St.
Martin, St. Mary, St. Lanrdy , and
Iberville parishes, two of which are
large producers of sugar cane, and
one of which, St, Martin, is in the
heart of the Evangeline country, made
famous by Longfellow's poem of the
same name.
An estimated acreage of 1,198,720
acres stands in the path of the re- !
leased waters and 105,000 people are
expected to be affected.
In southern Louisiana, along the i
Mississippi, the fight to hold the ris-
ing waters continued with unrelent-
ing energy. A weakness developed
in the levee at Morganza, above Baton
Rouge, but quick work checked the
waters and tonight it was believed
in good condition.
Still further north in 11 north-
eastern parishes, only houstops,1
church steeples and treetops, pro-I
truding above the surface of the in-
land lake, make the location of nu-
merous towns and villages.

Fathers' and Sons' banquet to be held
at 12:30 o'clock today in the Assembly
hall of the Union, it was announced
yesterday by Roger W. Green, '28,
chairman of the committee in charge.j
Nearly all of the tickets have been
sold in the sale which has been in
progress for the last two days. They
will be on sale again this morning
from 9 to 12 o'clock.
Prof. Arthur L. Cross, of the history'
department, has been chosen to be
toastmaster of the banquet. Lester
F. Johnson, '27L, president of theI
Union, will be the, first speaker on
the program. He will speak on be-
half of the sons. President Clarence
Cook Little will give the next talk.
He has not announced the subject for
his speech as yet.
The feature speaker of the pro-
gram is J. Arthur Whitworth, '94,
prominent alumnus, who is now inI
business in Grand Rapids. He has
three sons who will all be present at
the banquet. Two of these are stu-
dents in the University now, and one
has graduated. Two guests will also
accompany him as sons. He speaks
on behalf of the fathers.
The regular Union dance orchestra
will provide entertainment during
the dinner.
The banquet will start early in or-
der to give fathers and sons a chance
to go to the track meet which is be-j
ing held at Ferry field at 2:30 o'clock.E
Complimentary tickets for this are
being given to all fathers with theirI
tickets to the banquet at the Union.I
The use of the Union pool has also
been granted to all fathers who visit
Ann Arbor for the week-end cele-
No particular program has been
arranged for the fathers for Saturday
night, but complimentary tickets to
the Arcade theatre may be obtained4
at the desk in the Union if the
fathers desire to attend the theatre.
No organized tours of the campus are
being planned. These, it was felt by
the committee, were not a success
last year so they were discontinued.
It is expected, however, that each stu-
dent will show his father the campus
individually, and that in that way all
fathers will have the opportunity, to
get some impression of the Univer-
sity. .

members of the College of Architec-
ture in Natural Science auditorium

Americans ever thought of building;

I ica in 1854 with the construction of
I the Crystal Palace Exposition build-
i ung in New York. In the 1880's land
in the business sections became dear'
and the owners decided to build up-
ward in the air. But once building
grew upward, land values soared pro-
"The first great achievement of ar- 1
chitecture was the building of a sky-
scraper of 15 stories in Chicago, of
solid masonry. The widtly of the walls
at the bottom of the tower had to be
fifteen feet thick to support the weight
of the stones. Then some architect got
the idea of supporting the walls, not
by means of stone piers, but by us
ing a steel structure. There is now no,
need for the solid stone structure; all
a they have to do now-a-days is to cover
I the steel framework with stone and
punch it full of holes."
SThe original purpose of the sky-
scraper was to serve as an adver-
tisem ct, Mr. Mumford declared. The
artistic building didn't develop until
later. Mr. Mumford pointed out that
ordinances providing for set-backs in
the structures after reaching a cer-
tain height brought a great chance in
the designing of the monster build-
Siugs. The speaker offered as sugges-
tions for the future of the skyscraper
that they first cut down on the height
of the building, then lower the limit
of the set-back, or to allow the build-
ing to be as tall as it wished but to
set off an amount of land around it
in order to create the effect of height.l

Dr. Maurice T. Price, in a lecture
under the auspices of the Student
Christian Association yesterday, cited
three conditions in China today that
are responsible for the present events
and disorders. The habit of the Chi-
nese press to exaggerate all stories
for the benefit of foreigners as well
as for the Chinese people, makes it
impossible to get authentic news,
Even when supposedly authentic news
does arrive, one never can be sure
that it is not propaganda. The recent
reports of the shelling of Chinese
towns by British and American war-
ships was merely propaganda intend-
ed to arouse the wrath of the Chi-
nese people, Dr. Price said. The Chi-
nese press has not yet learned to be
particular ab~out the truth of the
stories they spread.
Another factor in the chaotic condi-
tion today, Dr. Price continued, is the
failure of the moderate and radical
groups of the country to get along
with each other. For some reason they
seem entirely unable to co-operate
With or eve.1 tolerate each other.
The last cause, he concluded, i's the
chaos sweeping the industries of
China as a result of communistic and
soviet propaganda, circulated through
the country by the Russians. The
worst possible thing for China, its
greatest danger today is that of try-
ing to give its ancient civilization

Grants Made For Purchase of Sites
For Wonien's League Building

(By Associated Press)
LANSING, May 13.-The Senate
late tonight concurred in the Mouse
amendment to the University appro-
priations bill passed earlier in the
evening, granting the complete six-
tenths mill levy without limitation.
The levy, which is to be based on
the state's valuation of 1926, will give
the University more than $4,240,000 a
year for maintenance and operation.
In addition to the mill tax measure
the legislature earlier in the day
passed a bill providing $4,150,000 in
the next biennial period for buildings
and improvements. Only five dissent-
ing votes were cast against this meas-
Early in the everting the Senate
passed the mill tax bill with a five
and a half tenths mill levy. The more
generous House bill made the levy
six-tenths of a mill, and was confirm-
ed by the Senate later. This is in
contrast to the former limitation on
the mill levy, giving the University,
only $3,700,000 annually.
The buildings and improvements
bill grants the request of President
Clarence Cook Little for funds with
which to carry out the program in-
augurated by the late President Mar-
ion Leroy Burton. It includes provis-
ions of $350,000 to purchase a site
for the Women's League building,
$250,000 for the purchase of land for
dormitories, $1,100,000 for a model
elementary school and other items,
to bear tax clauses. $1,450,000 was
provided without tax clauses, Includ-
ing the amount requested for a new
wing for Angell hall. Sums asked for
a new observatory building and a bi-
ological station were turned down by
the Senate committee two weeks ago.
