Aviators Send Down Note Telling
Of Operation In Receiving
Supplies In Air
(fay Associated Press) ,
FORT WORTH, Tex., May 22.-
Pilots L. Robbins and James Kelly
today roared past the half-way
mark in their attempt to set a new
world's endurance refueling flight
At 3:33 p. m. their single-motored
monoplane had been in the air 76
hours, half of the minimum time
they said they would fly when they,
left the ground Sunday. The army
plane, Question Mark, remained
aloft 150 hours, 40 minutes and 15
seconds to establish 'the present
Recognizing the hazard of fire in .
their refueling contacts, the fliers
asked today for parachutes, but
when pilots of the supply plane of-

ands Kelly refused to take them.
The parachutes are not'to be taken
up again unless the fliers ask for
Describes Refueling
In a note Robbins told how the
plane is refuled, the operation- dur-
ing which danger from fire and a
collision is greatest.k
-First we dropa note as to what
we need, when, and at what alti-
tude," Robbins wrote.
"The fefueling ship comes along
flying slow and the hose is lowered
about 20 feet. I pull under it (the
refueling ship) with back of right
wing and then come up within 20
feet of the ship. The hose is low-'
ered, the ground wire connected,
and hose put in the funnel. The
gas is turned on from the upper

"I fly with one hand on the stick
and the other on the saddle, and;
both are busy all the time. When
the tank is full I pull to the left
and drop down. Then the sack is!
lowered to us."
He dismissed the fire hazard with
a nonchalant' "the ground wire is
connected." The ground wire helpsj
to insulate the ship against danger
of electricity generated by the pro-
pellor from igniting the gasoline.
When the fliers passed the half-
way post they had refueled seven
times. Robbins dropped a note in
the afternon saying he would let
the ground crew know when he
wanted an additional supply. That
note said the plane was at about a
10,000 foot altitude.
Mrs. Robbins and Mars. Kelly
paid a visit to their husbands to-
day. The plane in which they went
up flew at a greater speed than the,
endurance snip and they played

" NEW YORK, May 22.-Wall
Street today experienced the most
drastic reaction in security prices

"Coolidge bull market," five year

Fiftyor more issues on the New

Return Voyage Into Germany
Until Thursday Night I
(By Associated .Press),
CUERS, France, May 22.-De-
parture of the dirigible Graf Zeppe-
lin from her emergency refuge for
Friedrichshafen, at first planned
for dawn tomorrow, has been defi-
nitely postponed until Thursday
fevening. This decision was made!
tonight by Captain Lehmann whenj
he received a telegram from Dr.1
Hugo Eckener, commander and
navigator of the big ship, that the
latter wasjourneying from Ger-!
many and would arrive at Cuers at
.5 p. m. tomorrow.
The big dirigible was fully pre-.
pared today for the earler geta-
way. Her balloons were distended
with lifting gas furnished by the
French government and her ballast1
tanks were lo'aded with water.-
Captain Lehmann had been au-
thorized to use his own-judgment
as to the hour for taking off, but
he naturally decided against an
early departure as soon as he re-
ceived definite word that his su-
perior officer was hurryng to Cuers.

were promoted and the newly
elected councilmen made their in-
itial appearance, at the final meet-
ing of the Student council last night
at the Union. Members of the past
year's body who are terminating
their careers were present last
night, and introduced the new men
to their duties.
With the exception of the trans-
ferring of the president's office,
matters relative to the changing of
the organization were postponed
antil the first meeting next fall. At
that time, a senior councilman will
be appointed to fill the vacancy oc-
curing through the advancement of
Reif to President. Reif was elected
a junior councliman last year, and
at the elections last Wednesday was
chosen head of the council.
Appointments Made Next Fall
Election of the council officers,
appointment of the various com-
mittee chairmanships within the
body, and the delegation of duties
to other students will also be exe-
cuted at the opening meeting next
Principal among the delegated
duties of the council will be the
handling of the fall and spring
series of convocations. The super-
vision of this function wiW eontsua.
to be within the jurisdiction of the
council, it was decided, after a sug-
gestion was offered that the convo-
cations be transferred ,to another
student organization on the campus.
Fred M. Asbeck, '29, president of
the council during the past semes-
ter, opened the meeting last night,
and then turned the president's
chair over to Councilman Reif. On
assuming his new role, Reif, made
an appeal to the councilmen for
thorough cooperation in the admin-
istering of the council work, and for
his colleagues to bring the council
in closer relation with the student
body. 8
Asbeck Given Appreciatory Vote
After leaving the chair, Asbeck,
was given a vote of appreciation
for his work. Other councilmen
who completed their terms last
night were Ernest C. McCoy, '29,
Richard Kurvink, '29, and Durwin
Algyer, '29. Three ex-officio mem-
bers are likewise rettiring They
are: Kenneth G. Patrick, '29, man-
aging editor of The Daily, William
Nissen, '29, president of the Union,

Junior councilmen who were ad-
vanced to senior positios with the
begining of the new council, are,
aside from Reif, Jennings McBride,
'30, and Willard Lowry, '30. The
latter served as secretary during the
past year.

Assuming council positions for the
first time were three senior repre-
