today as the Michigan Technic and

The original Engineering society

was only a matter of time before the
Technic recovered from the setback.
As it appears today, the Technic is
strictly a student activity. Its only
connection with University or faculty
lies in the form of a committee of
engineering professors to act in an
advisory capacity and handle the mon-

Baron Von Iluenefeld Had Determined
To Shoot Himself And f'oirpanions
If The Worst Developed
(y Associated Press)
The Junker monoplane Bremen flew
blindly through-the sky without lights
or any means of holding to the couse
for hours before it landed on Green-
ly island, the first detailed report of
the flight received through the Ca-
nadian Press revealed.
The situation was so serious to- I
wards the end, a Grenfell mission
heard who went to the island by dog-
sled told the Times-Globe and Tele-
graph-Journal of St. Johns, N. C., that
Baron von Huenefeld, sponsor of the
flight, decided to shoot his companions
and himself if the wort came to the
worst. Cable dispatches the day the
Bremen left Ireland told of the baron's
arming himself for emergency before
he took off.
Landed Safely On Island
But when hope was almost gone the
lighthouse on Greenly island was
sighted, and they landed safely. As
the fliers stepped from their damaged
plane, von Huenfeld said, they all
exclaimed, "Thank God," the baron
: and Captain Koehl in German and
Major Fitzmaurice in English.
While the first authentic reports
were coming in preparations went for-
ward for the Bremen's crew to con-
! tinue to New York, leaving their
transatlantic plane behind them to be
shipped later to Halifax for repairs.1
The news that the Bremen's light
system failed toward the end of their
journey was wirelessed to the Canad-
ian Press from Point Amour, the sta-
tion which sent out the first word of1
the Bremen's arrival. The baron was;
i quote d as estimating that the plane
flew 400 miles without any lights by
which to read instruments, and to. this
he attributes the fact that the Bre-
men flw far to the north of its in-
tended couse.
At dawn of the second day, he said,
a blizzard forced the plane dangerous-
ly low as it approached the New-
foundland coast and when the light
on Greenly island was seen it was at
once decide'd to try a landing. The
Grenfel nurse was Miss Greta Ferris,
who with newspaper workers traveled
15 miles across the ice to the island
for the first interview.
She said that although the aviators
had been through a terrible ordeal
in the air and the baron had been near
exhaustion and still felt the cold keen-
ly, she and her companions were re-
ceived cordially. The fliers signed
their autographs and posed for their
pictures, and when the women left
the baron kissed their hands with
punctilious Old World courtesy.
Miss Ferris said she heard that fog
was encountered during almost all the
36 hours the Bremen was in the air
and that when the Greenly island light
was first seen the flies thought it
was on a fishing steamer caught in
the ice.
i Her account indicated that after
f the landing, in which the ice of the
little on which the Bremen was
brought down was broken, the air-
men had to flounder through the water
to safety. She said that the first thing
done for them at the island lighthouse
was to give them dry footwear, and
they were given a meal of fresh milk
t and biscuits.

- 1 TO Complete Journey in F-13
S It had been hoped that the Bremen
1culd lie repaired sufficienztly to con-
tinue its flight to New York, but this
c plan has been abandoned, according to
g rep ort. from communication stations
1 in touch with the islands, and plans
j were made for the crew to complete
the journey to New York in the Bre-
s men's sister ship F-13. Major Fitz-
maurice flew to the mainland in a
