Howard Hughes Sets New
Aviation Speed Record
NEW YORK, April 21. -'P)-
Howard Hughes, the oldywood
movie producer, established his
third national air speed record
today when he set his low wing
monoplane down at Floyd Ben-
nett Field just 4 hours 21 minutes
and 32 seconds after he took off
from Miami, Fla.
Hughes, 33-year-old aviation
enthusiast, set a new West-East
transcontinental air mark last
Jant. 14 when he flew from Bur-
bank, Calif., to Newark, N. J., in
nine hours, 27 minutes and 10
seconds, eclipsing the previous
record held by Roscoe Turner at
10:01:51 in September, 1934.
Hughes also took the national
speed record for land planes over
A closed course when he flew
352.46 miles an hour near Santa
Ana, Calif., last summer.
Today's flight, airport officials
said, was the first attempt to
establish any official record from
Miami to New York.
An eastern transport plane
which flew the route last year in
five hours and 30 minutes, land-
ing at Newark, N. J., was credited
gfenerally with the unofficial rec-
Hughes took oft from Miami at
11:49:50 a.m., and was clocked
over Floyd Bennett by Ken Behr,
operations manaer at 4:11:22

President's Report Shows
Only 5 Per Cent Oppose
Present System
More than 80 per cent of the fac-
ulty members interviewed by William
T. Brownson, '35, student in charge
of FERA work, were enthusiastically
in favor of the program as it operated
during the past year according to the
1934-35 report of President Alexand-
er Ruthven to the Board of Regents.
Approximately 15 per cent support-
ed the program of Federal relief in
general but stated that the program
should be 'tapered off' as soon as
times approach normal. Five per
cent of the faculty members were op-
posed to the theory of Federal relief
The work which was done by stu-
dents on Federal relief during the
last academic year was wide and va-
ried. The projects were all approved
by the administration in Washington
and provided employment of awide
range of varied skills. Students tak-
ing part in the FERA work extended
the new and unskilled freshmen, who
had never worked before, to one grad-
uate student who had an M.D. degree
as well as a Ph.D. in human anatomy.
According to the report of the
President clerical and office work
occupied the time of a large number
of students. At the University Hos-
pital about 100 students worked to
clear up an accumulation of records
which had fallen behind over a 10-
year period.
Other types of office work included
stenographic work, typing of manu-
scripts, keeping student records and
general secretarial work. Work on
the Early Modern and Middle English
dictionaries was also rendered by
FERA students. Those in charge of
long-term projects stated that the
work was far ahead of any possible
accomplishment without the assist-
ance of the students working on the
relief program.
One of the most unusual types of
Daily News To
Move Into New
Finishing touches are being put
on the new Ann Arbor Daily News
building on the corner of S. Division
and Huron Streets into which the
paper will move Monday from its
former location on Ann Street oppo-
site the City Hall.
The new building, which has an ex-
terior of buff Indiana limestone was
designed by Albert Kahn in so-called
Modern American architectural lines.
Aluminum was used extensively in
the building both for its utility and
to add to the appearance. In this
latter respect it is employed in 22
ornamental plaques of cast aluminum
which are symbolical of phases of life
and culture connected with every-day
services the newspaper performs for
its readers.
Equipment as modern as the archi-
tecture which characterizes the build-
ing is tobe used in putting out the
first paper from the new plant on
next Monday, according to Arthur
W. Stace, editor. New equipment in-
cludes a Scott rotary press and a
different set of type faces which will
be used beginning with the first issue.1
After moving into the new build-
ing, the Ann Arbor Daily News will
not only use different type faces but
will also be marked by a departure
from the make-up which has charac-
terized it heretofore, Mr. Stace said.
Former Students
To Submit Theses

Two former University students
are among the more than 40 Duke
University graduate scholars submit-
ting papers for the degree of Doc-
tor of Philosophy, it was learned yes-
'terdiay. They are John Bernard,
Schoolland of Albany, N. Y., and Cor-
nelius A. Plantinga of Holland, Mich.
Schoolland, a student here in 1934,
has taken graduate work at Duke in
the department of psychology and is
writing his doctoral dissertation on
"Natal Factors Differentiating be-
tween Equivalently Conditioned Sym-
pathetic Responses." Plantinga, in
the Duke philosophy department was
a student here in 1935, and is writ-
ing on the "Philosophy of Maurice

work was done by those students
working in the psychology depart-
ment. Here the students charted the
course of white rats through an ex-
perimental maze.
Manual labor of the students was
kept at a minimum all year. However,
the building and grounds department
had one "labor gang," a constantly
shifting group of about 45 students.
Most of this work consisted of such
light labor as washing windows and
light globes.
Perhaps the greatest service was
performed by those students working
in the sociology department. Here
they put out a monthly publication
called the "Delinquincy News Letter"
and mailed it to judges, juvenile court
officials and educators hee in the

safe to say that the student FERA

What's behind that chuckle? Possibly he knows our
IThird Class is full and nimbly advances Tourist Class
with college orchestras, to forestall your doubling-up
with him in his Cabin Class castle on the BREMEN.
Or again, has he merely confused ship classes with
scholastic standings and thinks Tourist Class is a step
toward the testimonium sic cum laude?
Anyway, whatever he means, it's best to acknowledge
that only last night you were discussing Tourist Class
. . . And here's proof:
On the BREMEN and EUROPA in the height of
season, Tourist Class is $136 up; on COLUMBUS,
$124.50 up; Famous Four expresses NEW YORK,
up and on ST. LOUIS or BERLIN is $115.50 up.
