mile flight across the Arctic ice fields:
"Reach Spitzbergen after 20 1-2

kin's recent flight over the pole. "From
the looks of things, flying over arctic
wastes is not only a lot safer than
flying over the Atlantic, but also safer
than the older type of arctic expedi-
tion," Belknap said.
Geographical data of great interest
on possible islands between Alaska
and the pole may be one of the re-
sults of the flight, according to Belk-
nap. Such islands would have an im-
portant bearing on the practicability
of flight routes from America to
Europevia Siberia. It Is generally
held that there is no land between
Alaska and the pole, he said, but this
area, which Stefansson calls the "geo-
graphical pole of inaccessibility" is
practically unexplored.'
Wilkins' contribution to the know-
ledge of the "blind spot" cannot be
estimated until more details of his
flight come through. A direct route,
however, from Point Barrow to Spitz-'
bergen would take Wilkins over prac-
tically the same territory covered by
Nobile in the Norge.
The problem of navigating a plane
from Point Barrow to Spitzbergen, I
though a relatively small point iso-
lated by water, would prove compara-
tively simple, Belknap explained, be-
cause the flight would be along the
samira meridian with the same sun
correction throughout. With the
Bumsted sun compass used by Byrd,
the navigation problem would be al-
most nothing, he said.
TO HOLD TICKET SALEi
FOR SPECIAL SHOWINQ11
Performance Of Junior Girls' Play
Will Be Given Before Members
Of Schoolmasters''Club
PLAY IS OPEN TO PUBLIC
Tickets for the special performance
of the Junior Girls' play to be given
Friday night at the Whitney theater,
for the special event of the Michigan
Schoolmasters' club convention, will
go on sale tomorrow morning at the,
Whitney theater box office, it was an-
nounced yesterday. The performance,
while being given particularly for the
teachers' association, will be open to
the general public as the other per-
formances have been.
The advance sale of tickets for this
performance through money order ap-
plications has been particularly good,
according to officials of the Women's
league. The tickets are priced the
same as those for the regular perfor-
mances, at $3 for boxes, $2.50 for the
main floor and part of the balcony,
and $2 and $1.50 for. the remainder
of the house.
In addition to the teachers' conven-..
tion for which the performance was
arranged, the night also falls on the
date of the annual Military Ball, given
by ,thh local R. O. T. C. unit. The
performance, though starting at 8:30,
will be over in adequate time for the
grand march of the ball, those in
charge have stated.
The presentation of "For the Love
of Pete" on Friday night will mark
the eighth local offering of the play.
During its regular run of one week
before spring vacation it gained high
praise for its standard of musical
comedy excellence, and the extra
showing was decided upon largely be-
cause of the fact that the play this
year was not allowed to make an out-
of-town journey to Detroit as it did
the year previous.
All of the proceeds from the show-
ing Friday night. as from the other
presentations, will be contributed for'

tthe benefit of the Women's League
buil'ding fund.

GENERAL PUBLIC INVITED
Specially Recognized Students Will
MBe Sealed In Section Reserved
For Them
President Ernest M. Hopkins of
Dartmouth college, will deliver the
principal address at the annual
Honors convocation, which will be
held in Hill auditorium on Tuesday,
May 1, according to an announcement
made yesterday by J. A. Bursley, dean
of students. The event will take place
at 11 o'clock in the morning, and will
be open to the entire student body
and the general public.
The Honors convocation is held for
the purpose of publicly recognizing
those students who have distinguished 4
themselves in their work at the Uni-
versity during the year. The highest
10 per cent scholasticgly from all
senior classes of all schools and col-'
leges. of the campus will be invited
to the function, in addition to those
'students who hold fellowships and
scholarship's at the University.
, Freshmen Are Invited
This, year, also, the members of
Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman wom-
en's honor society and Phi Eta Sigma,
the corresponding scholastic honor
society for freshman men, will also be
invited to occupy the honor section.
Students who have been elected to
the various honor societies of the Uni-
versity during their residence here
will be additionally honored by having
the name of the society printed after
their name in the program.
The students honored will occupy a
special section reserved for them in
the center of the main floor of the
auditorium, and the remainder of the
seats will be open to the general
public.
President Hopkins, who will give
the principal address of the occasion,
is one of the most important educators
of the country. Born in New Hamp-
shire, 51 years ago, he graduated from
Worcester academy in 1896, entered
Dartmouth the same year and received
his A.B. degree from that college in
1901. Upon his graduation he be-
came secretary to the president of
Dartmouth, which position he held un-
til 1905, and from 1905 until 1910 he
served a's secretary of the college, re-
ceiving during the iterim his M.A. de-
gree.
Boasts Other Experience
In 1910 he left Dartmouth, and was
engaged in organization work for
numerous large industrial concerns in
Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia
until 1916, when, on July 1, he was
called to the post of president of his
alma mater.
On January 31, 1918, he was ap-
pointed to take charge of the indus-
trial relations of the Quartermaster's
department 'of the United States army.
From June to September of the same
year he served as assistant to the
secretary of war in charge of indus-
trial relations, and from July to Sep-
tember served as representative of
I the War department on the war labor
policies board.
President HolIkins is himself a
member of Phi Beta Kappa, and has
received honorary degrees from Am-
herst college, Colby college, Brown
university, Rutgers college, and the
University of New Hampshire. He is
versity of New Hampshire. He is
known as a liberal college president,
and two years ago proposed almost
simultaneously with President Clar-
ence Cook Little a plan for a two-
team system of university athletic or-
ganization similar to the one which
has now been adopted by the Western
t Conference.

HOPKINS TO PRESENT
PRINCIPAL SPEECH AT
HONORS CONVOCATION1

"Tha4 the Burton Memorial Cam-
panile should be one of the first ob-
jectives in the ten-year alumni pro-
gram," is the ambition of the officers
and directors of the Alumni associa-
tion, said E. J. Ot away, president, who
was in Ann Arbor recently in con-
ferenc3 with President Clarence Cook
Little and alumni with reference to
dormitories, which has been made an-
other chief objective of alumni acti-
vity.
"Tne alumni officials have been
much pleased with suggestion of the
officers of the class of 1928 that efforts
of siudents and alumni 'u joined in
this project, adequately to recognize
in a lasting way the influence of a
great president upon the life of the
university.
"Following up this suggestion,
alumjii officials have been endeavor-
ing to develop a wide interest among
Ann Arbor alumni, faculties, students,
and citizens of Ann Arbor and Michi-
gar generally, in support of the Bur-
tun memorial. It is not to much
to say that the attitude of the class
of 192S has influence:d to a degree thb3
effort to advance as rapidly as possi-
ble the plans for this project.
"At the present moment, optimism
preva-s in circles with rega,'d to the
a iAncement of plans. P:'eident Os-
car iberbach, of tho Ann Arbor alum-

campanile would stand not only as a
great memorial to Dr. Burton, but
would forever tower as an enduring
mark of beauty for campus and city.
It is, therefore, peculiarly fitting in
every way that campus and town
should join in this part of the cen-
tennial program. Celebrating a hun-
dred years of educational history that
has sent students into every corner
of the earth, with their records of
service, civic and professional, the
Burton Campanile would also point
the way forward to another hundred
years of similai', service.
"A suitable carillon installed in this
memorial would give it the final touch
of enduring beauty and would daily
Ssuggest tostudent and citizen alike,
not only the memory of a president
who gave his life to Michigan, but
would be a token of pride, to all local
interests, that they made a little
though inconseqgiential sacrifice ib
time and money, that both service
and beauty might be recognized on
this historic campus.

SEVEN RECORDS FALL
A IT ONOMEIN SPITE OF WEATHEI

held for the opening Tuesday night in
Mimes theatre of Lynn Starling's
"Meet The Wife," a sparkling comedy
in three acts. The production will be
the third this year conducted by the
Comedy Club, being preceded by
Kaufaman and Connelly's "Dulcy"
and Philip Barry's "You and ."
Robert Wetzel, '28, Phyllis Lough-
ton, '28, and Thomas J. Dougall, '28,
will carry the principal roles in
"Meet The Wife," and will be sup-
ported by Richard Kurvink, '29, Lil-
lian Setchell, '30, Harlan Cristy, '29,
and Lorinda McAndrew, '30. The di-
rection of the piece is in the hands
of Phyllis Loughton. Other members
of Comedy Club are assisting in the
management and technical direction.
Only a single set is used in the pro-
duction, and this has been executed
by Fred Rebma, techical director of
Mimes.
"Meet The Wife" will mark the first
of the campus dramatic attempts to
take place since the spring vacation
period, and will be one of the few re-
maining for th'e remainder of the col-
lege year. The several productions
planned by Mimes for this spring may
be postponed because of the illness
of E. Mortimer Shuter, director of
that body. One public presentation
by Play Productions may be forth-
coning but the date has not been de-
finitely announced a's yet. Comedy
Club had intended to present some-
thing other than comedy but was
forced to change its plans because of
altered dates for use of the theatre.
"Meet The Wife" was first produc-
ed at the Klaw theater in New York
by Stewart and French in 1923, and,
was written especially for Mary Bo-
land by Lynn Starling. Its story is
that of a domestic mixup occasioned
by the great San Francisco earth-
quake and fire, of a first husband
turning up unexpectedly to find an-
other in his place. The situations are
comic in the extreme, and the' char-
acters well-drawn. I
Although mail orders for the play'
have been coming in all week, the
regular ticket sale is scheduled to be-
gin Monday morning in the Mimes
box office. All seats are priced at
75 cents.

HUNDRED IS WON IN :09.6
Wolverine Trackmen Capture Seven
Places In Individual
Events
(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, April 21. - Record-
breaking performances featured the
fifth annual Ohio Relays which were
held here yesterday, in spite of the
wretched weather conditions that pre-
vailed throughout the meet. No less
than seven of the existing marks were
bettered, including four relay rec-
ords, although rain fell intermittent-
ly all afternoon.
Seven members of the Michigan
contingent captured places in the
various individual events, including
two firsts, while the two mile relay
team finished third and the mile quar-
tet tied for fourth place.
Don Cooper fulfilled all previous
predictions, when he raced to victory
in the 220 yard low hurdles in :23.7
to establish a new Ohio Relay meet
record for the event and repeat his
success of last year. Felker, Wolver-
ine sophomore, sprang a surprise by
tieing with Carr of Illinois for third
pla'ce in the high jump.
Wilfred Ketz, Michigan's star ham-
mer thrower, gained the teans ec-
second first place, when he captured
his favorite event with a toss of 154
feet, 11 3-4 inches, while Williams, an-
other Wolverine entry, placed fifth.
Century Mark Falls
Splashing his way over a muddy
track,. George Simpson, Ohio State's
crack sprinter turned in the outstand-
ing performance of the day when he
tied the national collegiate record of
:09.6 for the 100 yard dash, eclipsing
the former mark, which was held by
DeHart Hubbard of Michigan.
The Buckeye star defeated one of
the fastest fields of sprinters ever as-
sembled including Kriss of Ohio State,
who finished second and Capt. Buck
Hester of Michigan, last year's win-
ner, who placed third,
Two Michigan athletes, Prout and
Eardley, finished in a tie with Hein-
son of Illinois for third place in the
pole vault which was won by Otter-
ness of Minnesota, who cleared the
bar at 13 'feet, 1 inch, one inch, better
that the former 192? mark set by
Pickard of Pittsburgh, who placed
second.
Both Relay Teams Place
The Wolverine relay teams both
succeeded in placing in their respec-
tive events, the two mile combination
finishing third, while the mile quar-
tet tied with Illinois for fourth.
Indiana's team composed of Leet,
Smock, ,Abromson, and Sephenson
ran well to defeat the strong Syra-
cuse entry in the slow time of. 3:35.4.
Chicago was third in this event. The
two mile relay was captured by the
Illinois team in 8:22.5.
Glen Carlson gained a third place
in the discuss throw which was won
by Raymond of Ohio State with a
heave of 140 feet 6 7-8 inches. Vollsler
of Miami captured the shot put with a
mark of 44 feet 4 3-8 inches.

"Leadership, based on training,
character, and iAtelligence, will de-
termine the future of the republic,",

of the Lawyers' club, in a letter sentI
j by him to the board of governors of{
the Lawyers' club on the occasion of
the sixth annual Founder's day cele-
bration held this week in honor of
Cook. The letter was read to the 3501
guests assembled at the exercises to
pay him tribute.
"The rapid rise of America to the'
1 primacy of the world; its vast wealth,
i power, and population ; its problems
of capital and labor; its expansion of
I governmental functions; its diversity
of races; its determination to preserve
j American institutions - all demand
y leadership of the highest order, and
that can be found only in the legal
profession," Cook continued. "The

schools will broaden.
"There should be a professor of
American institutions in the Law de-
partment or the Literary department
or better still in both jointly," Cook
maintained. "Thus graduate's may
know what American institutions are.
There should also be a consulting pro-
fessor for counsel to judges and other
public officials. Judges would be glad
to avail themselves of dis-interested
advice, as I happen to know from
personal experience."
