Makes Rapid Trip From Roosqvlt
Field To Home Port At
(By Associ:ated Press)
PARIS, Oct. 31-Homeward
bound, the German dirigible, Graf
Zeppelin, after a record-breaking
flight across the Atlantic, was back
in Europe tonight, headed for
Friedrichschafen, where she was
expected at daybreak.
It was the second time that she
had defied the stormy Atlartic. The
huge ship which had taken more
than 111 hours to make the trip
from Friedrichschafen to Lake-
hurst, N. J., crossed the French
coast-line near Nantes at 1:43 p. m.
(Eastern Standard time) at the
nouth of the Loire river. It was
59 hours and 43 minutes since she
sailed over the majestic seaport.
Bests Previous Record
The best previous dirigible run
across the Atlantic was made by
the British ship R 34 on its home-
ward trip. On this journey the R 34
took 64 hours and 15 minutes to fly
from Roosevelt Field, L. I., to Clif-
don, Ireland. It will probably take
the Graf Zeppelin a total of 75
hours to reach Friedrichschafen,

Kraus, Schmalz, And Smith To
Deliver Three Addresses On
The Program
One of the most important steps
in the broadcasting of the Univer-
sity "Michigan Night" programs for
the past four years will be realized
tonight when the new studio, lo-
cated in Morris hall, will be thrown
open to the people of Ann Arbor
to witness the broadcasting of the
fifth of the current series. -The
programs, which are broadcast ev-
ery Thursday night between 7 and
8 o'clock, are put on the air through
WJR-WCX, the "Good Will Sta-
tion" of the Richards Oakland
Company, Detroit.
Reflects Public Interest
The appropriation for the new
studio is a recognition of the in
terest shown in the educational
programs being broadcast from the
University during the past three
years. During this time over 7,000
people have requested copies of the
University bulletin containing all i
the addresses given throughout the
year by members of the faculty.
The interest does not center on any
one particular subject, but has
been fairly evenly distributed over
all the various fields of research.
These bulletins are distributed free
to all who request copies.
Heretofore, the programs were
broadcast from the old Adelphi
rooms on the fourth floor of Uni-
versity ┬░hall, within which, a
canvas tent was used to get the
right accoustical effect. The new
studio in Morris hall, equal to the
finest in Detroit or the middle west,
was formerly the band practice
hall, and has been completely re-
modeled under the direction of
Ward A. Davenport, of the buildings
and grounds department, who
made an extensive survey of radio
broadcasting studios in this part of
the country.
Has Several Features
In the building has been built an
accoustically perfect studio for
small ensemble groups and soloists,
a large studio capable of seating
200 people which will be used for
the broadcasting of such programs
as cannot be given in the small
studio, a small announcer's room,j
and a control room where the am-
plifying board of the Michigan Tel-
ephone company adjusts the voices
of the speakers before they are sent
to the studio of WJR.
The studio, auditorium, and an-
nouncer's room have all been deco-
rated under the direction of Ross T.
Bittinger, instructor in architec-
ture in the department of creative
design. The walls are made of ac-.
coustic cellotex to deaden all echo
and resonance, while the rooms are
decorated with drapes and heavy
carpet to aid in improving the
sound qualities for broadcasting.
Featured on tonight's program is
the University of Michigan Glee
Club, under the direction of Theo-
dore Harrison, which will present
35 minutes of Michigan songs and
choral selections.
Three Talks Included
Three talks will be given on to-

night's program. Edward H. Kraus,
professor of crystallography and
minerology and dean of the Sum-
mer Session and the college of
pharmacy, will speak on "What is a

Variegated Career In All Walks

With all indications pointing tol
the largest audience ever to attend
one of the Oratorical association
lectures, Count Felix von Luckner,
the famous German "Sea Devil,"

number of the 1928-1919 lecture
course. The subject of his talk is
"Sea Raids of a Friendly Enemy."
All season tickets for reservations

at that time it was decided that
season passes be issued to one of
the left side section of the main
floor for $3.00 each. These are

ced yesterday by Oratorical associa-
tion officials, but a few may be had

Hill auditorium, which will open at
7 o'clock tonight, for $1.00 each.
There has been reserved the entire
right side section of the main floor
and part of the balcony for holders
of single admission tickets.
Wild Career Marks Life
Count von Luckner has had a ca-
reer which rivals the wildest
dreams of fiction and has emerged
from the World war as one of its
best known and most beloved
heroes. Though a mem er of an
old and famous military family, a
descendant of a marshall of France,
Count von Luckner ran away from
home as a boy and served seveny
years before the mast under an
assumed name, acting as kitchen
boy, deck-swabber, and general
After he had found his way up
from the station of common sea-
man to that of an officer of the
German navy, he returned to his
family, who had long given him up
for dead. All sorts of exploits
brought him naval fame, with the
result that he became the protege
of the Kaiser. After the battle of
Jutland, he was given the commandf
of the "Seeadler," an old windjam-

President Clarence Cook Little will give his unqualified co-
operation to the Student council on a plan now being completed
to conduct a student investigation of the younger members of the
University faculty, according to an announcement last night by
Paul J. Kern, '29, before the regular meeting of the council.
A committee of the council consisting of Frederick M. Asbeck,
'29, Kenneth G. Patrick, '29, and Ernest C. Reif, '30, has been
considering the matter during the past week with President Little,
Alexander G. Ruthven, dean of administration, and Prof. C. S.
Yoakum, director of the bureau
of University research.

From then on, his aaventures are
one of the romances of the war.

During these last two years he suc-
ceeded in capturing and sinking 17
ships of the Allies. These boats
were captured, the crews were,
taken from them, and the vessels
were sunk, without injury-in even
the slightest degree-to any of the
hundred prisoners taken.'
Since the war, he has been given
27 decorations by his own and other
countries, including the highest
possible decoration from the Pope,
conferred upon him for his kind-

asked to be in their seats a few
