rely on it. Thus they lose some of
the independence which is the es-
sense of self-respect.
There is the additional consider-
ation that Christmas is an emoti-
onal occasion which the trained so-
cial worker can utilize to bring
families closer together by working
within the home. Through a judi-
cious gift of cash wherewith mem-
bers of the family can purchase
small gifts for one another, a more
substantial basis is laid for rehab-
ilitation than can be accomplished
if the Christmas celebration is tak-
en out of the home and transplant-
ed in some fraternity house.
In the light of these proved
facts it appears that those fraterni-
ties who still wish to do something
for Ann Arbor's poor children
would be making the most valu-
able possible contribution if they
gave the cash formerly splurged
on one or two children into the
hands of the Family Welfare ou-
reau. The cause is so worthy that
it should still appeal, even at the
sacrifice of the glow that comes
from making a loud noise like
Santa Claus.
Because twenty American uni-
versities and colleges (one of them
being Michigan) have formed fIly-
ing clubs and placed tbemselves
under the guidance of the Inter-
collegiate Aeronautic Association,
the nation-J body known as the
National Aeronauti: Association has,
not only Cccided to form an affili-
ation with the air-minded students
but has gone so f.-r as to change
their by-laws to meet the require-'
rments of college w ,in.
this s;.Ep gives the student .r-}
gar zadon even a greater back-
ground of experience and author-
ity. rnd does much to u::.' the
-jifferent branches of the as.x -
tion. Already Grover C. L ening,
maker of the famous Loening
planes has contributed a grant of
$2, 9 tor l.c set ,ide in th 3 treas-.
ury of the contest committee of
the National Aeronautic Associa-
tion to stimulate college competi-
tion, and the annual dues to the
organization have been reduced?
by more than half.-
It is gratifying to note the pro-
gress that college flying clubs are
making in spite of general lack of
faculty support or consent of pa-
rents to fly. The time is bound to
come when land-tied people will
freely admit that flying is not thej
terrible risky thing that newspa-I
pers frequently intimate. Such
i mergers and affiliations as the,
college clubs have made will tend
to hasten that moment-as well
as to promote interest in aviation !
