Fred HI. Weinnian Awarded Eckler
Prize While Oliver Weinkauf
Gets Scholarship Medal
"It is a fine thing at any time to be
at home with your own soul," was the
advice of Prof. J. 1. Brumm to the
sixty students and faculty members
of the School o% Pharmacy at their
annual all-Pharmacy banquet Tues-
day evening at the Michigan Union.
Prof. Brumm asserted that there are
two ideals for education which are at
present distinctly oppsed to each, oth-
er. The one, culture, he considers the
most worth while and the most bene-
ficial; the other, efficiency, he relegates
to a poslition of relative unimport-
ance in the scheme of things.
Fred R. Wotring, '31 was the toast-
master and introduced the speakers of
the evening including representatives
of the various, classes. Wayne J. Wat-
kins, Rex Green, Harry Benson, and
R. M. Twining represented the fresh-
man, sophomore, junior and senior
classes, respectively'
Dean Edward H. Kraus, in pre-
senting the prizes and medals for te
year, stressed the point that honorary
scholastic societies are a rather un-
ique characteristic of the American
University and that at present very
few organzations of this type exist
in European universities although
they are now being introduced into
many foreign schools.
The award of membership into Phi
Eta Sigma, national freshman honor-
ary group, was 'received by four out
of a class of 40 in the Pharmacy
school. Those named were: J. A. Pi-
anfetti, Fred R. Wotring, and W. J.
These men were chosen into Phi
Lambda Upsilon, honorary chemistry
organization for men, the three being:
Richard Byce, '28, Urban Oakdale, and
Oliver Weinkauf, while Miss.Dorothy}
Campbell, '28, was elected into Iota
Sigma Phi, women's honorary chemis-
try group Miss Cam'pbell is the first
woman in the pharmacy school to have
ever achieved this distinction.
Two pharmacists, 0. J. Weinkauf
and U. O. Oakdale were elected into
Phi Kappa Phi, which is to students
of pharmacy what Sigma Xi is to
to students of, general science, offers
an annual prize of $10 to the fresh-
man with the highest record for the
first semester and John Andrew P1-
anfetti was announced the winner for
this year.
The Charles Ralph Eckler prize,
which is given annually to the student
making the best drawings in Pharm-
acognosy I, was presented to Fred H.
Weinmann. Mr. Eckler, donor of the
award, is an alumnus of the class of
'02 and is at present a pharmacolo-
gist with Eli Lilly and Co, of Indian-
apolis. and his prize consists of a
set of almost two hundred crude
drugs, whch are boxed and enclosed

The passage quoted is from Will
Langland's "Piers the Plowman," writ-
ten in the time of Chaucer, and is
supposed to be an example of glut-
tony, one of the seven deadly sins.
The exam consisted of three ques-
tions and each question required the
writing of five themes. Most of the
questions were based on English lit-
erature and a successful answer re-
quired a thorough, in fact, perfect,
knowledge of the subject.
The results of the contest will be
determined as soon as the judges have
compared the various answers.

Lindbergh Rumors Start
Rumors that Col. Charles A. Lind-
bergh would attempt ,a transoceanic
flight via the arctic circle were re-
vived yesterday and Tuesday when he
landed at the Ford airport for a con-
ference with Major Thomas Lanphier.
It is known that Lindbergh and Lan-
phier have had their heads together
for some time over the feasibility of
such a flight.
Professor Hobbs has been called in-
to conference with Lanphier and Wil-
liam Mayo, chief engineer of the Ford
Motor company, within the last two
weeks with regard to the possibiliy
of such flights, and he has provided a}

party nominee, whoever that might be.
large amount of meteorological data
for Lindbergh and Lanphier.
A possible third flight, al'so, accord-
ing to Professor Hobbs, may be at-
tempted via Mt. Evans this summer,
but nothing as yet has been given out
with regard to the details. Weather
reports and predictions will be furn-
i'shedthe fliers from the Mt. Evans
station, and news of the fliers will be
given to the world through he short-
wave radio station maintained by the
expedition. The station has been sil-
ent since March 21 since Paul C. Os-
canyan Jr., radio operator left for
Copenhagen, but it will be reopened
by Francis M. Baer when he arrives
late in June, and Mt. Evan's will again
be in daily contact with United States
Expedition Costs $20,000
This year's expedition, costing
about $20,000 has been made possible
through gifts of alumni and friends of
the University, and a $5,000 contribu-
tion made by the Guggenheim founda-
tion for Promotion of Aeronautics.
In the list of donors are: O. D. Mor-
rill of Ann Arbor, C. S. Mott, president
of General Motors, Herbert H. Dow,
president of the Dow Chemical com-
pany of Midland, Senator James Cou-
zens, Edward S. Evans of Detroit,
