BRITON IN TINY PLANE
ATTEPTS CEANHOP,
Aviator Hops Off On Test Flight
But Now Thought To Be
Over Atlantic
Flight Commander H. 0. Mac-
Donald, retired, a young Briton who
hopped off from Harbor Grace,
Newfoundland, is believed to be
somgwhere out over the Atlantic
tonight on an attempted nonstop
flight to England alone. Although
he said the flight was to- be only
for a short test flight, the fuell
tanks were full and he carriedr
complete equipment. Weather con-
ditions were favorable, with a
northeast wind._
The plane used was a tiny Moth1
De Haviland plane and the wind is
-expected to aid his attempt. Only
a few persons were present to wit-H
ness his takeoff. He carried 100,
gallons of gasoline for fuel and had1
a quart of coffee and two dozenj
sandwiches for food.a
MADISON, Wis.: W. A. Mowery,+
-head physician of the department1
of student health says that thei
"hatless fad" is comfortable, and
not to be condemmed in fair
weather, at least.

MEMORIES OF PRE-PROHIBITION
BROU1GHT BACK BY CHANGES INA

Relics, as interesting perhaps to
Michigan students and alumni, as
the recent unearthing of King Tut's
tomb was to the world of archaeol-
ogy, have been brought to light
lately during the remodeling of
the Goodyear and company de-
partment store on Main street.
Definite signs of the happy-go-
lucky drinking party initiations of
the Michigan of the past, when
men were men and beer sold for
five centsa schooner, are now be-
ing buried forever under a coat of
paint on the third floor of the new
addition to the building occupied
by the Goodyear store.
In the year 1903 B. V. (Before
Volstead) when Michigan's drink-
ing clubs were becoming popular,
the entire third floor of this build-
ing was used, probably as a chapter
room, as can be seen from the fra-
ternity emblems and the dates still
to be seen on the walls of one of
the rooms. Chapter rooms and
drinking clubs of this sort were
not unusual in the days of Yost's
"poimt-a-minute" teams and evi-
dences of other organizations of
the same sort have been uncovered
in adjoining buildings on Main
street, but this one is the last sur-
vivor of the "good old days."

moved into the building about
twelve years ago, the floor was di-
vided into three rooms, which
seemed to have been untenanted
'for several years.
In back of the front room was
a very narrow one, more like a hall-
way, with walls and ceiling en-
tirely black and; a ghost-like skele-
ton hung from the ceiling in one
corner. It is this all-black room
that was no doubt used for initia-
tion purposes.
In back of the initiation chamber
was a huge room with a large cen-
ter table and this was, without
doubt, the drinking room, where;
sorrowful students drowned their
sorrows in kegs of beer and fumes
of smoke as they can no longer do
with federal officers in Ann Arbor.

Dear Sirs:
Two years ago last winter I went
into the Red Lake gold fields in
Canada. It was a tough trail from
Hudson, over 140 miles of snow and
ice. There were fourteen of us on the I
trail going in, and frequently at night
when seated around a big camp fire,
some one would ask me for a pipeful
of Edgeworth. These Canadian boys
sure like our Edgeworth.
In four weeks' time I ran out of
Edgeworth. I was glad to get 'most
any old tobacco.
One day, nowever, I dropped in to
Dad Brown's tent, a 72-year-old pros-
pector, and seeing a can of Edgeworth
on an improvised table, back there 150
miles from the "steel," I perked up at
once, saying, "Dad, I'm plum out of
tobacco-how's chances for a pipe-
ful?" "Help yourself," he said. So
pulling mry heavy duty pipe from my
pocket, I loaded it with Edgeworth,
packing it in so tightly that I couldn't
get the least bit of a draw.
I excused myself for a moment, and
stepped outside to remove about three
pipefuls to put in my pouch. Dad
stepped out, saying, "You're worse
than any Scotchman I ever saw."
Then I confessed. I told him what
happened to my Edgeworth-that I
was just dying for a smoke, and he
understood right away. He said,
"Boy, Edgeworth is mighty scarce in f
these parts, but I reckon I can spare
what's left of that can. Help yourself."
You can just bet your last nickel
that I guarded this Edgeworth with
extreme care until I got back to the
"steel.'
Yours very truly,
C. M. Bahr

Smartly Clad
for fair weather and bad
Preparedness for bad weather no longer
means abandoning smart appearance. Gay
Alligators, in a variety of models and colors,
bring style to all occasions no matter what the
weather is. For fair weather days Alligator
strikes the most advanced note in style and
the exclusive Alligator process makes them ab-
solutely waterproof in the most drenching rain.
