Roeli And Spindler Have Disguse4
Activity So That Late Start
Was Almost Unnoticed'
(iy Associated Press.)
BERLIN, March 2.-Eluding th
vigilance of both the Lufthansa and
aerial police, Capt. Herman Koehl
Baron von Huepefeld, sponsors o1
the flight, and Arthur Spindler, a war
aviator, 'as mechanic, took ofi short
ly after 8 o'clock this morning from
Tempelhofer airdrome on an at-
tempt to span the Atlantic with New
York as the final objective.
The single-nmotored plane Bremen
carrying the intrepid fliers reached
the Heldonnel airdrome, in Ireland,
this evening and 'thus the first, leg
of the long journey from Germany
to America had been accomplished.
Captain Koehl took off from the
airdrome in utter secrecy in fasce
of the opposition of German avia-
tion circles. Especially opposed to
the flight was Lufthansa, the national
organization which he had been iden-
tified with and which reiterated its
contention that the east to west
crossing was possible only wih a
triple-motored hydroplane. Koehl
succeeded in disguising his inten-
tions so well that he was enabled
to make a fortnight's preparation for
the flight without his intentions be-
ing discovered.
Tests Motor
For a number of daysKoehl had
been flying six hours daily ostensibly
to test the motor and instruments of
the old Bremen with which he at-
tempted to fly to America last year.
His real purpose, 'however, was not
to attract attention to the start
which he, von Huenefeld and Spind-
ler planned for today. Not even to
his wife did Koehl divulge his full
purpose, merely saying he intended
to make a trial flight to Ireland.
where his future movements would
be guided by English weather re-
DUBLIN, March 26-Starting out in
secrecy on. the first stage of the peril-
ous flight to America, the Junkers
aeroplane Bremen landed at Baldon-
nel airdrome, near Dublin this eve-
ning, and its occupants immediately
took refuge behind another wall of
Phioteld by Capt. Herman IKoehl,
who had the benefit of an unsuc-
cessful start on a westward trans-,
atlantic flight last year, the Bre-
men came humming over Dublin to
find Com. Fitzmaurice aloft in aI
Free State plane, waiting to greet
the arrival of the Germans and fur-
nish an escort to guide them to the
air. station.
As soon as Koehl and his two com-I
panions, Baron von Huenefeld and
Spindler alighted, they began to'
stretch themselves. The Free State
authorities closed the gates to news-
papermen and declined to give in-
formation of the German airmen's in-
Will Not Present
Rejected Plan To
Board Of Regents
The University College proposal,
after having been submitted to all of
the faculties of the University and

irejected by two of them, will not be
presented to the Board of Regents at
their March meeting Tuesday 'night,
it was announced by President Clar-
ence Cook Little yesterday. The state-
ment, as given out from the oflice of
the President yesterday, follows:
"Because of the fact that only a
bare quorum of the Regents will
probably be present at the meeting ofj
March 29, I have decided to postpone
formal consideration of the University
College situation."
The postponement of action comes
close on the heels of a faculty meet-
ing held last Thursday in the College
of Literature, Science, and the Arts at
which time the various faculty inem-
hers were presented with a question-
naire by President Little designed to
get close to the. heart of the realj
feeling regarding the University Col-.
lege. Both the literary college facul-
ty and the faculty of the Colleges of
Engineering and Architecture have re-

Galens, junior-senior medical hono
society, was founded in 1914 bya
Egroup of students and faculty mem
bers of the University of Michiga
Medical school. Its primary function
was to act as a buffer betweencth
student body and members of the fac
E ulty of the Medical school. It ha
served for many years to give both
d factions a-n opportunity to argue thei
viewpcints with a chance of convinc-
ing the most influential men in the
faculty ,and student groups of the cor
rectness of idea supported by echl
e body.
Recently the society hasgone a ste
d farther and organized a regular dis-
, cussioa group within the association,
f' which, according to members of Gal-
ens, is of great value in that it gives
Sthe students a chance to practice pre-
-paring and delivering intelligent pa-
rpers on zubjects In which they are
interested as medical students. Te
existing system fulfills a need which
never before has received attention in
the medical departments.
Members of Galens are chosen for
general ability, -character anld person-
ality. The membership of the society
ris limited to 28 tudents and includes
President Clarence Cook Little, Dean
Hugh Cabot, and nearly all of the
prfessors in the Medical school. Dr.
