Alumnus At New Post


Marius Lodeesen-Grevinck, '30E,
ensign in the United States Naval
Reserve, has moved to Miami, Fla.,

Diego, Calif., and returned to Ann
Aibor for graduate work in trans-

pleting his work at the University he

Survivor Of Last Man's
Club Discards His Cane
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 26.-(P)-
Charles Lockwood, 91 years old and
sole survivor of Minnesota's famed
Last Man's Club, has discarded his
cane. Here today for a visit, he said
the cold weather had aided his health,
so that he no longer needed the
cane. He prided himself in having
made the trip from his home at
Chamberlain, S. D., alone.
A big job was completed when the
Bureau of Economic Geology at the
University of Texas published a thou-
sand page volume on all the present
known rock strata of that state.

Football Clinics To {
Be At Hotel Statler
Due to the inability of the Uni-
versity Club to provide adequate fa-
cilities for the increasing number at-
tending the meetings, the weekly
Football Clinic and Luncheons spon-
sored by the University of Michigan
Club of Detroit, starting next Mon-
day will be held in the small banquet
hall on the ballroom floor of the
Hotel Statler.
These weekly "bull sessions" have
been growing in popularity with an
increasing number of alumni attend-'
ing each week. More than 90 turned
out the first Monday,* and the two
meetings since then have drawn 114
and 150, respectively.
Ray O. Courtright, assistant Var-
sity football coach, will conduct the
fourth clinic at 12:15 p. m. next
Monday. He has had the job of
scouting the Chicago team in all its
games for this year, and, in addition
to describing the fine points of Sat-
urday's game, he will explain the
special plays planned for that par-
ticular contest.
Mr. Courtright, who is freshman
football coach, will also tell some-
thing of the individual prospects on
the frosh squad that will be available
for next year's team.
Plane Designed
By Local Man Is
Given Test Here
The first test flight of a locally
designed low-winged racing mono-
plane occurred at 5:30 p. m. yester-
day at the Ann Arbor Airport about
three miles out South State Street.
Powered with a five-cylinder 80-
horsepower radial Genet, the ship ac-
commodates two persons. It is be-
lieved that the plane will develop a
cruising speed of 140 miles per hour
and a top speed of 165 miles per
hour. It was designed by Tom Brun-
dage of the Ann Arbor Municipal
A specials feature is the flaps fas-
tened to the bottom of the wings to
slow up the landing speed, which
permits the ship to land on a very
short runway.

Gold Quotations
Fixed 18 Cents
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.--GP)-The
Administration pushed the price of
newly mined gold still higher today,
supported by a formal opinion from
Attorney General Homer S. Cum-
mings upholding the legality of the
method chosen for carrying out Pres-
ident Roosevelt's new monetary pol-
The gold quotation was fixed at
$31.54, or 18 cents higher than that
of yesterday and 48 to 57 cents above
the price on the London market.
Nevertheless, news from the com-
modity markets brought the first re-
verse in the campaign for a higher
general price level to be achieved by
artificially raising the price of gold.
Wheat fell off 2 cents to 3 cents a
bushel, cotton 50 to 65 cents a bale
and leading stocks $1 to $3 a share.
Officials, however, expressed no dis-
couragement. A steady continuation
of the upward trend of Monday and
Tuesday was hardly to have been ex-
pected, they said.
