ANN ARBOR BOASTS FLYING SCHOOL,I
AIRPORT EQUALING THOSE OF ARMY

Ann, Arbor, aside from receiving
fame as a university town, is in
a fair way of receiving fame as one
of the foremost towns of its size
to support an airport and a schools
of flying on a par with the
army schools of the country. At
present the airport and the school
are under the management of the
Flo Flying Services, Incorporated.
"There are two courses that I
give," said Lieutenant Leonard S.
Flo, head of this school of aero-
nautics in a recent interview; "one
is a thorough training in the es-
sentials of aeronautics without
leaving the ground and includes
exhaustive study of the theory of

requires that at least 10 hours of
solo flight be presented before a
license is granted.
Lieutenant Flo, who is at the
head of the school, has won him-
self considerable fame in flying
circles for his attempted non-stop
flights to Havana, Cuba, for his
past records at the army training
schools at Kelly and Brooks Fields,
Texas, and in the United States
Airmail services. Although at pres-
ent he is grooming up his Spartan
bi-plane in preparation for an-
other attempt to reach Havana
without a stop on the Way, Flo
finds time to look over and to
manage the Ann Arbor airport.

Robbers Get Money
At Fraternity House
For the ,second time during the
present school year the Zeta Beta
Tau house has been entered and
robbed. The robbery occurred
early yesterday morning.
Losses amounted to more than
$75 in cash as well as a number of
personal jewelry possessions. No
clue has been obtained as to the
responsibility for the thievery, ac-
cording to the Ann Arbor detec-
tives who are working on the case.
With the sudden rise of enthusi-
asm in inauguration of a flying
field the work on the 'landing
grounds was rushed, and they are
not in condition after the winter.

{weeks were announced yesterday.
According to the annuncement
,, singles and doubles bowling tourna-
ments will be held as well as a
billiard tournament, a pool tourna-
ment, and a three cushion tourna-
ment.
Entries for the pool and billiard
tournaments are being received at

announced later. According to the

BIGGEST THEATRICAL EVENT IN HISTORY
OF ANN ARBOR AND ENVIRONS
It is with exceptional pleasure and no little pride that we
are enabled to announce the advent of the All New GA Y
PAREE to Ann Arbor. The engagement is for
ONE NIGHT, SUNDAY, MARCH 3
For the first time a New York Winier Garden revue is
being offered BEFORE playing its Manhattan engagement
in cities west of Philadelphia. So successful have been the
recent tours of other Shubert sextravaganzas-after the New
York runs-that the producers are giving patrons of this sec-
tion an opportunity of seeing one of the larger revues while
still in the full flush of its pristine vigor and before long tenancy
on Broadway has tarnished the lustre of its newness. It is of
especial interest to this city to know that the success enjoyed
by the former edition of GAY PAREE last season caused
the Shuberts to include Ann Arbor in the route of the new
edition of GAY PAREE.
The cast includes such stage celebrities as CHARLES "CHIC"
SALE, Stanley Rogers, Frank Gaby, La Pulchra, Sylvia Froos,
Franklyn Batie, BERKHOFF TROUPE, Kelo Brothers, Margie
Evans, Margherita Marano, Oliver Reese, Geshrey & Hully, Lil-
lian Herbert, John McDowell, Charlotte Terry and Charles Mac.
The entourage number over 150.
