Before any mails had come
into the Daily office after
yesterday's appeal, more than
eighty dollars had been col-
lected for the fund to pay the.
damages to the Michigan
theater. This morning's mail
should contain much more.
The fight has only begun.
The tribute has been well sup-
ported, but upon the sustAin-
ed interest of the student body
in this affair depends its
success. To be successful, and
to be a complete illustration
of the sportmanship and the
essential fairness of the stu-
,dent body, the drive must "go
over the top" and must pro-

Completed several days ahead of

Stoughton Takes Controls E
Milton Stoughton, '29E., who su-
pervised the designing and con-
struction of the ship, was the first
to take the controls. He guided
the ship over the ice behind the
car, testing the controls, but did
hot lift it off the ice.
Wallace Franklin took the con-{

The new ship has a wingspread'
of 30 feet and a chord of five feet,
giving it approximately the same
dimensions as the Gliders, Inc.,

pounds as compared with more
than 200 for the other. It is also

four of these ships before June,

tan changes in design that ex- !
perience has proved desirable will
make it possible to construct other#
ships in about two-thirds the time

Steps are also being taken to se-'
cure academic credit toward gra-
duation for students who take an
active part in the Glider section's
program of construction and flying.

Herbert C. Sadler, dean of the

members of the faculty who were
enthusiastic in their approval of
the move to free the student body
from the impression of rowdyism;
and townspeople rallied to the sup-
port of the student body by con-
tributing more than half of the
total amount of the fund to date.

Campus sentiment, both organ-

favor of this move from within
the student body to uphold its own
I am glad that the students
gave me the chance to be one
of the group to pay for damages
done to the Michigan theater.
The reason for my feeling is
that I hope that by meeting the
debt in the way suggested by
The Daily the chance of any re-
currence of the type of inci-
dent may be diminished.
When the students as a whole
balance the trouble and the un-
fairness of it all against the
supposed benefits and tempor-
ary excitment they will oppose
and prevent such "rushes."
When they further realize
that as a result of thoughtless-
ness of the group some boys who
had planned on graduation
from Michigan may be forever
prevented from doing so, they

that many will take a few days to
respond to the call.
Student Council Cooperates
A new impetus wasj given the
drive last night with the decision
of the Student Council to back the
di-ive instituted by The Daily. The
members of the Council raised a
fund from their members and then
passed a motion to solicit all of the
organized houses on the campus
in an effort to stimulate interest
in the purpose of the drive. Solici-
tation will start at once, and the
council will exert every effort to
cooperate with The Daily until the
entire amount has been raised, ac-
cording to Fred Asbeck, '29, presi-
dent of the Council. The Council
also suggested that names be pub-
lished when contributions were re-
ceived, so that the campus might
be assured of the intregrity of the
