(By Associated Press)
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 26-A mo-
nopoly on trans-continental non-
stop air records was held by Harry
Tucker's trim little Lockheed-Vega
monoplane "Yankee Doodle" today
following the plane's successful
flight from New York which ended
at Mines Field here Thursday
afternoon.
The "Yankee Doodle," with Capt.
C. B. D. Collyer, co-holder of the
around-the-world travel record, at
the controls and Tucker in the pas-
senger's seat, set a new east-to-
west non-stop record of 24 hours
and 51 minutes when it came to
earth. The previous record of 2
hours and 50 minutes was made
in 1923 by Lieuts. John MacReady
and Oakley Kelley.
With Art Goebel, Pacific flyer,
at the controls and Tucker aboard,
the cigar-shaped craft flashed o
an astonishing west-to-east record
of 18 hours and 55 minutes a few
weeks ago.
The flight was from Los Angeles
to New York, and the flyers later
announced a new and shorter route.
had been discovered, which, with
a brisk wind at the ship's tail, ac-
counted for the fast time.
The course of both flights lay
over McKeesport, Pa., Columbus,;
Indianapolis, Terre Haute, Ind.,1
Wichita, Albuquerque and through;
the San Bernardino mountain pass.,
The west-east flight was the only
successful non-stop hop ever made,
while Thursday's flight was the
second non-stop flight westward
across the continent.
The latest successful flight for1
the fleet little monoplane was a
decisive victory over adverse wind,
fog, and rain above the Alleghenies
and again over the Rocky moun-
tains that threatened to send itl
down short of gasoline before the
goal was sighted.
The "Yankee Doodle," after sue-
cessfully battling the head-windsE
of the Alleghenies in September,
was forced down at Prescott, Ariz.,
when the western winds wasted
away the ship's gasoline supply.x
At that time the plane was fac-
ing westward in the trans-contin-
ental non-stop derby of the Na-
tional Air Races, held here.
"We left with 525 galonsof gas
this time," Tucker said. "In flying
over the Allegheny mountains near
Bellefonte, .Pa., we ran into the
worst fog I ever have seen, and I
have flown a lot. We couldn't see
the wing tips. We had to circle
around and try another p a s s
through, and we lost an hour. We
could have made it in 24 hours in
spite of the headwinds if it hadn't
been for that.

The town constabulary was non-

plausible theory for the mystery
than that the tub had been remov-
ed to the house built with the De-
troit street paving bricks.
Obviously the town was going to

spiritual and temporal, began lay-
ing their plans for a revival of mo-
rality when it was discovered that
the owner of the tub, a North Di-
vision street resident, had claimed
it. It appears that the former
owner of the house, a Battle Creek
citizen, had sold the bathing fix-
ture without informing his tenant,
Mrs. Smith. Much relief has been
expressed by police over the solu-
tion of the mystery.

HEALTH SERVICE CURES DISEASES
BY NEW AND SUCCESSFUL PROCESS

Horse dandruff, tobacco, face
powder, and more than a hundred
other equally queer things are be-{
ing injected into students at the{
Health Service in an effort to rid
the campus of hay-fever, eczema,
and other similar diseases. The
treatment is called "sensitization"
and is under the personal direction
of Dr. Jiminez, of the Health Ser-
vice.
Dr. Jiminez has had many inter-
esting cases and in every instance
he has treated them successfully.
Students continually come into the
Health Service complaining of ail-
ments which they cannot accredit
to any causes. If the causes canl
nod be determined by other means,
Dr. Jiminez takes the patients inj
hand and gives them the treatment
for sensitization.
The treatment is simple and ef-
fective, and consists in trying the
effects of more than two hundred
extracts on the patient. Scratches
are made on his arms, one for each
extract, and into each of the
scratches a different extract isc
placed. Fifteen minutes are given

for the doses to take effect and,
at the end of this period the
scratches which have formed welts
contain those extracts to which the
patient is sensitive. The extracts
are of all sorts of things, from oat-
meal, feathers, and glue to golden
rod, animal fur, and flour. They
are all the possible things the as-
sociation with which might cause
illness. '
After the treatment has been
completed, a compound is made of
the antitoxins of all the extracts
which 'have been found to disagree
with the patient. The compound
is injected into the patient and,'
according to Dr. Jiminez, will sto'
the disease with which the patient
is suffering.]
Preparatory School
Graduates Form Club
Students now attending the Uni-
versity who graduated from Hotch-
kiss, Hill, and Lawrenceville have
organized a preparatory school club
on the local campus.

for Ann Arbor, arriving here in
time for Monday classes.
Michigan is the only university
in the country that affords its stu-
dents an opportunityfor balloon
flights to study air currents. The
proximity of Detroit with an es-
tablished balloon club 'makes it
possible to obtain the loan of first-
class gas bags suitable for student
flying.
During the past two years more
than 10 balloon ascensions and
week-end tripshave been made by
students to secure first hand in-
formation on meteorological condi-
tions. Last year one trip of 450
miles was accomplished under the
auspices of the University.

Departmental Head
Prof. I. Leo Sharfman of the
economics department has been ap-
pointed chairman of the depart-
ment, it was announced yesterday1
by Dr. Frank E. Robbins, assistant
to the president. Professor Sharf-
man will take the place of Dean
Edmund E. Day, who resigned re-
cently.
The new department head re-
ceived bachelor of arts and bach-
elor of law degrees from Harvard
university and in 1908 became an
assistant professor of economics
there.
In 1910 Professor Sharfman went
to Tientsin, China, \where he spent
some time as professor of political
science at the university. In 1912
he returned to this country where
he served for some time on the de-
partment of public utilities.
