FORT WORTH, Tex., May 24.--
With every endurance flight record
save that of the famous Army
"Question Mark" behind them,
Reginald E. Robbins and James
Kelly drove their single-motored
monoplane "Fort Worth" on to-
night through occasional misting
rains toward an all-time record for
aerial cruising. As the fliers passed
the 124th hour in the air their
motor sounded as efficient as it did
last Sunday morning when they
last touched earth.
At 4:13 p. m. the fliers had only
27, more hours to stay aloft to es-
tablish themselves as the cham-
pion endurance fliers of the world.
During the day, the last two rec-.
ords separating Robbins and Kelly
from the time established by the
"Question Mark" fell. At 3:03
o'clock this morning the 112-hour
record of the Graf Zeppelin went
by the boards and Earl B. Mat-
thews, one of the official timers,
wrote in the log: "Adios Graf Zep-
pelin. Your flight is ancient his-
tory now."
The 118th hour record established
by the ill-fated French lighter-
than-air machine, "Dixmude," was
surpassed at 9:33 this morning. The
record for sustained flight by two-
man crews had been passed hours
before as had the record for single-
motored ships. The "Question
Mark" carried three motors.
Some wo, ry was expressed today,
as it appeared possible that the
fliers might try to break the record
by days instead of hours, as to the
length of time the barograph which
the plane carries, would continue
to register. The barograph records
altitude and is a positive proof at
the end of a flight that the plane
did not come to earth at any time
during the flight. Officials at
Meacham Field here were of the
opinion that the barograph was set
to run eight days which would
make it run out Monday morning.

Michigan Retains
Conference Lead
By 2o I Vi'ctory
(Special To The Daily)
IOWA CITY, May 24.-Michigan continued its march to-
ward the Western Conference baseball championship by winning
a hard fought game from Iowa here today, 2 to 1. It was the
fifth Big Ten victory for the Wolverines this season and as a re-
sult the Hawkeyes, added to its list of victims, were eliminated from
the race.
The game was one of the hardest fought battles the two
teams have engaged in so far this season. Iowa, with two defeats
chalked against her, made a desperate but futile attempt to grab
the game out of the fire and failed by inches.

It was also a pitchers' battle,
with McAfee, Michigan star,
pitting his art against that of For-
est Twogood, the ace of the Iowa
mound corps, but pitching alone
was not the deciding factor. What
pitching couldn't do, fielding did.
The Michigan team was all over the
field, and in the ninth inning, when
Iowa made its final gesture, the
Wolverines cut the rally short with
spectacular play att he plate.
In the final inning, with two out,
Glassgow tried a daring steal of
home, the play failing to work,
however. Iowa had scored its lone
counter earlier in the inning on
singles by Mowery and Glassgow, a
sacrifice by Sahs, and Rath's high
bounder.
Michigan manufactured its count-
ers in the sixth inning. Nebelung sin-
gled, Centenni sacrificed, and after
Captain Corriden struck out, Ruibi-
cek was, given a base on balls. Both
runners advanced on Twogood's
wild pitch, and scored a moment
later on a single by Weintraub.
Twogood fanned nine batters to
run his season's total to 44, three
above the record by which he led
the Conference's pitchers last sea-
son. He needed only eight pitched
balls to retire Michigan's "murder-
er's row," Centenni, Corriden and
Kubicek, in the fourth inning,
striking out the latter two in
straight throws.
Twogood, in his duel with Mc-
Afee, had much the better of the
argument, permitting but five hits.
McAfee, on the other hand, yielded
seven. Weintraub led the Michigan
attack by getitng two hits.
