Ambitious Plans Laid
for Building and
Semi-soarer Type Ship
Being Designed by
Following a summer of highly
I successful competition and exhibi-
tion flights in Ohio and Pennsyl-
vania, the Glider section of the
Aeronautical society is planning
for the current college year an am-
bitious program of building and fly-
ing, both primary and secondary
types of ships, according to Robert
B. Evans, '30, chairman of the sec-
tion. Aamembership of 100 is the
j the goal of a drive which will start
Monday night with the first gen-
eral meeting of the section to be
held at 7:30 o'clock in Room 348

i meeting will be open to all inter-
ested in gliding.
Work Nears Completion.
Work yesterday was nearing corn
pletion on the rebuilding of the
section's training ship which was
jcracked up during competition at
the Cleveland air show last August.
It will probably be flying Sunday.
A second primary training ship
manufactured by Gliders, Inc., of
Orion, has been donated by the Ex-
change club of Detroit and will be
delivered soon to Ann Arbor. The
section is also planning to build a
third primary ship as soon as the
new membership can be organized
into working groups, Evans said
last night.
Milton Stoughton, '28E, techni-
cal section of the section, is de-
signing a secondary ship with en-
closed fuselage aid greater wing-
