THE CHALLENGE
Captain Hinchcliffe and Elsie Mac-
kay have but recently been added to
the long list of aviators who perished
somewhere between France and
America since Nungesser and Coli
were last heard from. Undaunted by
the failure of others, they too, ap-
parently fell prey to the Atlantic.
Now, plans are underway for four
French flights to be made during the
summer of 1928, with five of France's
leading birdmen playing the leading
roles.
Feeling that the Paris to New' York
hop is still a challenge to the courage
and daring of the world's best avia-
tors, the five Frenchmen, Costes, Le-
Brix, Drouhin, Bissoutrot and the
"Lone Falcon," are preparing for the
supreme effort this summer. It is
significant that they are giving more
attention to the perfection of their
planes than to publicity preceding the
takeoff.
It takes admirable courage to at-
tempt to conquer the Atlantic, but it
has been shown that courage alone
cannot accomplish the feat.. Past
disasters, as well as past successes in
eastern flights over the Atlantic, have
decisively shown this to be true, and
the time has come when flyers sholild
realize that the challenge is not one of
arousing sufficient courage and dar-
ing to undertake more flights, but one
of employing skill and science in the
construction of newer and better
transatlantic planes. Until then, too
much optimism cannot be expected
regarding the success of such ven-
tures.

OASED ROLL
SPRING
- RHERE
BELIEVE IT OR not, despite wha
the weather man may serve up in the
I way of greeting, today is the first day
of spring. Throw away your heavy
coats, red flannels and all that, it i
going to be warm, BUT NOT TODAY
* * *
YES, SIR, THIS is the day which
is fixed on the calendar as the first
day of spring. Usually, spring begins
about the first day of summer accord
ing to the calendar, but the best thing
we can do is hope.
NOW THAT .SPRING is here the
arboretum will become crowded and
the canoe business will become profit-
able. Of course, there will be no
change in the automobile business
despite the weather.
FOLLOW THE DOG HOME
ACCORDING TO THE instructions
of Dr. Emerson, printed in yesterday's
Daily, if you are bitten by a dog you
are to follow the canine to its home
and report the bite to the owner.
IT SEEMS THAT if the owner
watches the dog and afterten days
he shows no signs of rabies the bitten
person is safe. The rest was not
stated but we imagine that if the dog
shows that he has rabies after ten
days, it is just about time for the
.bitten person to look for medical at-
tention.
* * *
IF THE OWNER of the cur will not
tie it up for ten days the case should
be reported to the police department.
They will then throw tear gas at the
dog and make him repent his sins.
Personally we think that a little Chi-
cago gang treatment with a pistol
would be a sure cure for the dog.

YOUTH AND POLITICS

Today the students and faculty
members of the University will be
given in opportunity to register their
choice for President of the United
States on a straw ballot to be con-
ducted under the auspices of The
Daily. The event is not tremendously
significant nor important; nor will it
materially affect the outcomne of the
presidential race (though the results
will be reported to a central tabula-
tion of the college polls throughout
the nation); but as an indication of
stula'nt interest in the vital problems
of the nation the ballot will be an ex-
cedingly effective barometer.

The accusation that American col-
lege students are not interested in
the more serious .problems of their
day is too often made to require
repetition; and an opportunity to dis-
play this interest is so seldom offered)
as to be a rare privilege. By far the
outstanding public question of the
present year, however, is the question
of who will occupy the White House
from 1929 to 1933, and a display of
student enthusiasm for one candidate
or another would be an effectual con-
tradition of those who feel that uni-
versity students lack serious in-
terests.

HIGH SCHOOL AERONAUTICS
To the Editor:
After returning from my three week
vacation, which I spent at the Univer
sity hospital, my attention was calle
to an editorial on High School Aero
nautics, in the March 6 issue of you:
paper. I think the writer of the art
icle completely misunderstood the
news from California about establish
ment there, in Galt high school, of
course in Aeronautics, and accordingly
his fears about the danger of such at
innovation in the high school curricul
are unfounded, and are liable to mis,
lead the public.
None of the high schools arc liabli
to go into flying training for the sim-
ple reason of the expense of it. I
would be more interesting and im-
portant for the few engineering
schools in this country, engaged ii
teaching Aeronautical Engineering, tc
also include flying training for their
students, as a certain amount of prac-
tical experience in flying is of advan-
tage to future Aeronautical Engineers,
however, they have all unanimously
decided not to do it, not only on ac-
count of the responsibility in case of
accidents that might occur in connec-
tion with such training, but primarily
for the reason of perfect inability to
stand the expense of such training.
The news from Galt high school
means simply, that they introduce in
their curricula some elementary
courses on Principles of Flight and
Aircraft Engines, just like similar
courses developed and conducted for
the past few years by some of our
graduates in Aeronautical Engineer-
ing, at Cass Technical high school in
Detroit, and also the City college of
Detroit. I . understand that similar
courses are being offered in several
other high schools in our state and a
few others.
The purpose of the instruction in
high schools is for the following rea-
son: a new developing aeronautical
industry needs not only engineers, but
also in a much greater number, skill-
ful mechanics, foremen and workmen.
Only a small percentage of youth
passing through high school are
capable, as we know, of acquiring a
college or university education, the
majority of them furnishing the more
intelligent material to our industries
and business organizations, and, since
high schools train in different trades, .
it is perfectly proper for them to also 1
include Aeronautics and so answer a
need which is becoming more and1
more apparent. For that reason I have<
already advocated this idea for some
years and, personally, I feel very gra-
tified that the Daniel Guggenheim
Fund for the Promotion of Aeronau-t
ics has recently started a plan for,
spreading out a knowledge of princi-t
les of aeronautics through the medi-I
um of private and secondary schools.
may also mention, parenthetically,
hat even before the World War ins
ome of the European countries, the

IF THE DOG does not want to go=
home the only thing for the person
bitten to do is retaliate and bite the
dog. In that case the canine will
begin to think it has' the rabies from
the bite and will hasten homeward.
Thus you will be able to discover the.
domicile of the animal.
* * *
THE LATEST
WE LEARN FROM a paper publish-
ed in Mishawaka, Indiana, that Paul
Oscanyan, radio operator of the Uni-
versity of Michigan. geological station
in Greenland, proposed to Astrid
Funder, daughter of the director of
the Copenhagen School of navigation
by radio.
* * *
THIS SEEMS TO BE fine for the
lady because if she wished to refuse
she merely has to say she didn't hear
the message correctly.

AND FOR THE more. unpopular
men, they can broadcast the proposal
feeling sure that at least one of the
millions in the radio audience will
accept.
AT THAT WE would feel sorry for
a man who had several acceptances.
We also wonder just what action the
courts would take in suits for breach
of promise. No, Oscar, we shall send
all our proposals by telegraph.
* * *
ANOThER ACCIDENT
NOW THERE COMES to our at-
tention the fact that one of the en-
forcement officials, to use the com-
mon vernacular a University cop, rode
his motorcycle into the rear end of
a car on State street.
* * * -
WE NOW ADVOCATE that the
University take the motorcycles away
from the enforcement officials and
buy them kiddy-cars. With these
there will be much less danger to all
the citizens and students.
* * *
GRIDIRON NOTES
ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN made .
that the committee in charge of such
things has sent out invitations to
prominent men to attend the Gridiron
banquet. As yet we haven't received
one of them and we can't imagine
why.
*

.I
;

Nor is the poll a matter for the men
students of the University only; for
the enfranchisement of women voters
has brought with it a measure of re-
sponsibility that can not be ignored.
Public and political questions have
become matters of concern for both
sexes, and with the tabulation of
women's votes to be made in the
campus balloting, some indication of
their interest in the natlonal life of
which they will some day be a part
may be gained. -

AN ARBOR ART EXHIBIIT
A Criticism, by Robert J. Gessner.
Of all the art exhibits that have ever
adorned the walls of West Gallery
the present by far out numbers any
in quantity, and also in its own style,
any in quality. And all this is due to
the prolificness and taste of the Print
Makers Society of California.
;Dry points and litographs by Eng-
lish artists, etchings by Belgians, and
wood blocks and block prints by Cali-
fornia artists constitute the major
part of the better work. New Eng-
land contributors along with a few
New Yorkers share in the general
effect.l
Of the unusual presentations a
lithograph entitled "Fuchsia" by Lily
Blatherwich (English) is the most
startling. One of the finest bits of
technic to be found among the etch-
ings is "A New England Road-Eve-
ning"-- by George Elbert Burr.
"Desert Clouds" by H. L. Doolittle ofe
California is delicate in its fantastic
effect. Ernest Watson of New York
has beautifully displayed his imagi-
nation in a poetic thing called "Siren's
Bargue." From France Maurice V.
Achener has sent representative ex-

Straw ballots are necessarily in-
decisive; but a straw ballot represent-
ing or. a large scale the opinion of
a great University student body as
to v hom is the most ably qualified
maa for President, and upon at least
two other public questions to be in-
cluded on the ballot-the World Court
and prohibition-cannot help but prove
enlightening. It is a privilege and a
nominal duty for an American uni-
versity student to entertain at least
