th2 Choral Union Concert Series for

i

1934-35.3
The crowd called the Symphony
Orchestra back for two encores, one
of which was the well-known "Tales
From Vienna Woods" by Strauss.
Last night's concert marked the first
appearance of the Cleveland Sym-
phony Orchestra in Ann Arbor.
The program consisted of the works
of the more modern composers. The
concert was opened with "Organ
Chorale No. 1, E Major" by Cesar
Fianck. This composition was orig-
inally written for the organ in 1890,
and was completed only a few months
before Franck's death. Arthur Loes-
ser, a soloist with the orchestra.
adapted the organ registration to the
orchestra, maintaining a close ad-
herence to the style of Franck's own
orchestral writing.
The program was continued with
"Symphony, Op. 10" by Dmitri Shos-
takovich. This composition was com-
pleted in 1925 when the composer was
only 19.
After a short intermission, the or-
chestra played "Overture-Fantasia,
Romeo and Juliet" by Tschaikowsky.
'I he concert was concluded with one
of the more popular modern works,
"Suite from the Ballet Petrouchka"
by Stravinsky.

inWhere To Go

Thi i te.irt f sris* f rtices
on the careers- 01 well-known alumni.
By ELSIE PIERCE
A former president of the Michigan
Glider Club, Heath McDowell, '33, is!
now chief engineer of Bowlus-duPont
Sailplane, Inc., a pioneer company
which is attempting to build gliders
which can be used successfully in
commercial aviation.
This company, backed by Richard
and Paul duPont, also handles all
phases of building, repair, and in-
struction in the flying of gliders and
sailplanes. Besides the central plant
located at Wilmington, Del., it owns a
glider school at Miami, Fla.
McDowell's job is to design a new
utility glider with two sets of wings for
training and soaring. The first test
of his glider will be made at the Na-
tional Soaring Contest to be held in
June at Elmira, N.Y.
McDowell has had a colorful life
since he graduated from college two
years ago. While in school, he was
not only president of the Glider Club,
but was test pilot of the Franklin
Glider Company in Ypsilanti, and
was in charge of student instruction
at the Ann Arbor airport.
Two-way communication from the
ground during a glider flight is still
an unusual accomplishment, but Mc-
Dowell, who flew a Franklin glider in
the Elmira contest of 1933, had the
distinction of being among the first
to accomplish this feat.
Radio In GliderI
At that meet he had a two-way'
radio in the glider, and was able to
talk for more than an hour while
soaring in the contest, with the re-
ceiver on the ground connected with
a loudspeaker system so that the spec-
tators could hear the conversation.1
Gliding is still a comparatively new
field, and there is still a certain ele-
ment of danger involved. In the
summer of 1934 McDowell, who had
been studying at the Boeing school
in Los Angeles, arranged to give an
airplane tow demonstration with a
glider at the Oakland airport.
In airplane towing the glider is
fastened to the tail of an airplane
by a long rope. The plane then towsI
the. glider into the air to an alti-
tude of several thousand feet where

the glider drops the tow line and
glides under its own power.
Puzzled At Crowd
Arriving at the airport he was
somewhat puzzled, though gratified
to see the large crowd which had
turned out. He soon found out, to
his chagrin, that their curiosity was
caused by the fact that the last three
pilots who had tried to airplane tow
had been killed. However, McDowell
went through the flight successfully,
and in his performance of loops, spins
and wingovers, he proved that gliders
could do anything in the way of stunt-
ing that an airplane can do.
One week-end he airplane towed to
Lodi, Calif., to take part in a grape
festival there. On the return trip,
however, the tow line fell off about
eight miles from the home airport,
and although McDowell landed safely,
the pilot, who had not noticed the
loss, was frantically combing the
countryside for the missing glider.
However, McDowell's aim is not to
prove the stunting capacities of glid-
ers, but to prove its utility in com-
mercial flying.
Track Star
At the University, McDowell was af-
filiated with Alpha Delta Phi, and a
member of the track team. Although
he had studied medicine at the Uni-
versity of Rochester, Rochester, N.Y.,
he transferred to engineering when he
entered Michigan.
In his work with the Bowlus-duPont
company, he is assisted by another
Michigan graduate, Stanley W. Smith,
'4. Smith was United States glider
champion in 1933, and is now working
as a draftsman. He piloted one of the
gliders which was part of a unique
-ky-train feat of Prof. R. E. Franklin
of the aeronautical engineering de-
partment, in which three gliders were
towed behind an aeroplane locomo-
tive.
