HAS BRILLIANT RECORD
Michigan One of Few Colleges

By Richard L. Tobin, '32.
Gliding is making history daily
in the United States. Should one'
doubt it, one might glance at al-
most any newspaper during the last
six months and discover the
amount of publicity being given at
the present tie to the art of
motorless aviation.
In Captain Frank Hawks and
Colonel Lindbergh, gliding has
found two world-renowned de-
votees whose names have given the
art a prestige which it formerly
lacked. It may or may not be ex-
plained by just such prestige that
the University glider section has
become so tremendously important
at Michigan, and it may or may
not be due to the tremendous im-
petus given the art of tireless
effort on the part of the University
engineering department. Whatever
it was, it has developed gliding into
one of Michigan's foremost engi-
neering projects within the short
space of two years.
Several Licensed Pilots.
During the school year of 1928-
29, the organization bought one
primary training glider and built
another. One of the members had
received glider pilot training in1
Germany and he served as instruc-
tor to the other members. As a
result of the training, the club had
a number of licensed pilots at the
beginning of the 1929-30 school'
year.
The glider section of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Aeronautical
society consists of approximately
100 members who are all students
in the University. It has operated
throughout the last year a Franklin
training type glider and has con-
structed a seconhary training type
of glider. It owns at present two
modern automobiles, one the gift
of Edsel Ford to the organization.
These autos; are used for towing
and inmtruction and have sup-
planted the shock-cord launching
method formerly used.
' E ight to "Balance."
The auto-towing method consists
of towing a glider with a cable
fastened to the rear of one of the
cars. The length of the cable used
depends upon the ability of the
pilot to handle the glider behind a
car and varies from 300 to 800 feet.
The auto-towing takes place on
Barton pond in the winter and t
the Ann Arbor airport during the
summer.
With each student, the method

ADELPHIMEMBERS
Professor of Political Science
Department to Speak at
Smoker Tuesday.
Adelphi's third semi - annual
smoker will have for its principal
speaker Prof. Thomas H. Reed, of
the political science department.
The affair will be at 7:30 o'clock
Tuesday night, in the AdelDhi room
on the fourth floor of Angell hall.
Professor Reed is an authority
on municipal government, and has
done practical work in the field for
many years. Last year he was not'
on campus, having spent half a
year in St. Louis, where he drew up
a new charter for the city, and a
semester at Harvard lecturing. This
charter, however, was defeated in I
a vote by citizens last September.
He has also drawn up charters
for Pittsburgh and other cities, and
at one time he was city manager.

Adelphi has extended an invita-
tion to all students interested in
debating to come to the smoker,
which is being held partly to ac-
quaint prospective members with
the organization. Smokes and re-
freshments will be served.

balance in the wind without mov-
ing. Then the student is taught to
combine lateral balancing with the
longitudinal balance which enables
him to make normal take-offs and
landings. Lastly, he is taught to
combine with both of these the use
of the rudder which enables him
to maneuver in any direction while
in the air by the proper combina-
tion and coordination of the con-
trols. Each student progresses as
fast as he satisfactorily demon-
strates his ability to handle the
glider while in the air.
Michigan is one of the few Uni-
versities in the country to have a
glider section in it's engineering
field.
