Zeppelin Commander
Brings Ship To Port

Denies Negotations
Mayo denied any negotations had
been opened between the Zeppelin
people and the Ford company. He
said it was his personal belief, how-
ever, that such a service as Dr.
Eckener plans was practicable, and
could be put on a paying basis
within a year or two.
Dr. Eckener estimates it will take
at least $14,000,000 to launch his
project for four great air cruisers
plying between Europe and the
United States.
Until it is definitely determined
how long it will take to repair the
Zeppelin, plans for her Midwest
tour are held in abeyance. It is
not believed, however, that the re-
pairs can be completed before
Tuesday, and since the start of the
return flight to Germany has been
set tentatively for Saturday, Oct.
27, it is certain that the flight will
not be a long one.
Itinerary Indefinite
It has been more or less definite-
ly settled that the Zeppelin will
cruise to Detroit, passing over as
many, cities as possible en route,
but her itinerary after that is prob-
lematical. Tentative plans are for
her to visit Chicago and St. Louis,
but this will depend upon time and
weather conditions.
Several persons will be taken as
guests on the Midwest tour, but
whether Mr. Ford will be one of
them is uncertain.
"fHe is a great man," Dr. Eckener
said, "and I should like to have him
for a passenger,but he is verybusy,
and I don't know whether he will
have time to go. Besides, it is
doubtful if we can tie up at his
mast in Dearborn.
Many Ask Passage
Hugh Allen of the Goodyear-
Zeppelin Co. announced that he
had three times as many applica-
tions for places on the return flight
as he had room. Most of those who
csme to this country aboard the
Zeppelin as passengers will return
the same way, and he has only
eight or 10 vacancies.
He said another trip to this coun-
try of the Zeppelin is planned this
year, either late in November or
' early in December. She then will
remain in Europe until the opening
of the tourist season next spring.
Six student interest groups were
formed at a conference of the lead-
ei's of the student organizations
affiliated with Ann Arbor churches
held last night in Harris hall. They
were in charge of several student
pastors. Homer Grafton, general
secretary of the Student Christian
association, under whose auspices
the conference was held, Ralph
Johnson, instructor in the engi-
neering college, and Paul Wilcox,
'31, M. The groups formed were on
administration, student meetings,
social and dramatic work, commun-
ity service, deputation and exten-
sion, and world relations. Chester
Bennett, '29, vice-president of the
S. C. A headed the committee in
charge of the meeting, which was
held for the purpose of organizing
and planning the work for the
coming yea. A banquet preceded
the conference.

j "Too many lawyers and doctors
and other professional men are in-
cied to think of the social worker
as a sort of assistant missionary to
unknown peoles, or a sentimental
4 busybody, working without definite
objective and with no technique,"
Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
school told the Michigan State
Conference of Social Work at its
recent opening meeting.
"Yet how clear it is," he contin-
ued, "that the social worker of to-
day is attacking the sores and ills
of society, usually at the source of,
the trouble; that if he studies
symptoms, it is only to get at the
_________ causes; and that the problems he is
facing concern the very life of so-

Invitations, issued by representa-
tives of Highland Park Junior Col-
lege, to other colleges of the state
not represented at last year's meet-
ing, have been accepted by most of
the schools, Professor Brumm says.
Planned last year through ne-
gotiations of the Highland Park
Junior college "Tatler" with Pro-
fessor Brumm, the club had its'
birth in a meeting at the Union
late last spring, four junior colleges
and one city college being repre-
sented. At that time it was de-
cided that the drixwing up of a con-
stitution for the organization would
be left with the Journalism de-
partment. The constitution, which
will be completed in time for the
coming convention will be submit-
ted to one club at that time.

Reproductions of drawings in the
various German galleries have
been purchased by the University
of Michigan library and some of
them are now on display in the
main corridor of the main library.
The collection as a whole consists
of eight large folios of German of
Dutch drawings. They consist of
charcoal sketches, water colors; and
preliminary sketches of many fa-
mous artists. Among the most
prominent artists represented are
Rembrandt, de Vinci, and Van
