Frederick B. Fisher's Lecture
Postponed; to be Given
A president of the University, for
the first time in several decades,
will speak to students on the sub-
ject of the future plans of the insti-
tution when Pres:dent Alexander
Grant Ruthven addresses an all-
campus forum at 4:15 o'clock to-
morrow afternoon in room D Alum-
ni Memorial hall upon the subject,
"The Future Plans and Policies of
Dr. Ruthven welcomed this op-
portunity to acquaint the under-
graduates with a subject t h a t
should be of vital concern to them,
according to a statement of William
Kearns, '31, chairman of the Open
forum committee of the Student
Future Alumni Will Know Aims.
As potential alumni the student
body should at least have a rudi-
mentary knowledge of what the
leaders of the institution have in
mind for its future betterment.
The forum that was scheduled
for last Thursday at which Dr.
Frederick B. Fisher, pastor of the
Methodist-Episcopal church of Ann
Arbor and former Bishop of Indi'a,
was to speak on "The College Atti-
tude toward Religion" has b e e n
postponed until Tuesday, Nov. 18. It
was decided that the last Thursday
afternoon was undesirable owing to
the conflict with the send-off of the
Riseman To Talk Nov. 20.
Harry Riseman, well known De-
troit attorney, will address the for-
um on Thursday, Nov. 20, on the
subject of "Unemployment Insur-

to follow up the forum last month

BERLIN.-Reversing the course of
airplane design, the new Focke-Wuli
"Ente" monoplane here makes many
a sidewalk stroller rub his eyes in
amazement as he sees a passenger
ship apparently cruising backward
through the city's upper air.
Its silhouette in flight suggests
one of the many high-wing passen-
ger monoplanes, but where the or-
dinary single-engine monoplane us-
ually carries its propellor the "Ente"
carries a rudder and vertical stabil-
And instead of flying with its
elongated fuselage in the rear, it
seems to be pushing its fuselage
through the air tail-first.
Only when it is taxiing along the
ground at some distance from the
observer does the freak plane's de-
sign begin to look reasonable.
At such a moment it ceases to
look like a monoplane going back-
ward and suggests instead a great
gray duck running along with wings
outspread and outstretched neck
skimming the grasstops with its
bill as if looking for appetiz:ng in-
It has these advantages:
It cannot "nose over" on landing,
as the longest and lightest part of
its fuselage is in front of its en-
gines, making the plane's center of
gravity several yards behind the
front wheel of the landing gear.
It is tailspiin-proof. The forward
stabilizer, which is really a forward
wing, is set at a sharper angle than
the main wing and tends to correct
at once, : ccording to the builders,
any tendency to enter a spin.
Because there is no danger of
"nosi'ng over" it is possible to halt
the .plane after landing with the
same suddenness as if it were an
automobile. It can land on very
small fields, a few yards from the
nearest obstruction. The pilot need
not worry . He may skid, just as in
an automobile, if he jams on the
brake too hard, but he can be sure
he won't nose over.
The "Ente" has a maximum speed
of 90 miles an hour and can climb
to 3,000 feet ih eight minutes. Driv-
en by two 100 horsepower enginesa
carried beneath the main wing, the
plane has room in its cabin for
three passengers. The pilot sits in
an open cockpit forward of the
