Instructor Shows Ann Arbor Airport To Flight Students

Odd Museum Pieces Illustrate
Customs Of Little-Known Tibet

Students To Attend
Railway Convention

By JEAN MAXTED
Many of the things described by
Harrison Forman, lecturer and ex-
plorer, in his lecture Wednesday night
are given reality in the large col-
lection of Tibetan material owned
by the University Museums.
The material is located in the
Division of OrientN in the Museum of
Anthropology and illustrates many
aspects of religion, daily life, and odd
customs of this little known country
in central Asia, which is sometimes
called the "Roof of the World." Ti-
betan cultural life is largely centered!
around the Lamaist monasteries
which arehscattered throughout the
country, and it is from the temples
attached to these monasteries that

in the University collections.

A group of the 20 prospective student pilots, who e'=rolled in the University's new flight training course,
get their first look at one of the "little flivver" ships in which they will fly a minimum of 35 hours during the
semester. If the course proves successful, the program will be expanded to produce 20,000 new flyers next year.
Fledgling Pilots Amass 30 Hours

Twice a day, four days a week, the
20 students enrolled in the local flight
training course are taking to the air
from the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti
airports for 30-minute flights. A-
ready the fledging pilots have
amassed a totak of more than 30.
hours of dual flying and weather per-
mitting, the instructors estimate that
in two weeks the group should be
soloing.
Cub ships, light two-seaters that
only develop 50 horsepower are being
used in the course. Two of these
"flivver" planes are kept at the Ann
Arbor airport and one is at Ypsilanti.
This type of plane is ideal for this
work, instructors explained, because
they are exceedingly easy to handle
and at the same time are economical
to operate.
In addition to giving actual flying
lessons, the flight instructors are
holding regular ground school courses
in the Ea'st Engineering building.
These courses deal with fundimen.-
tal navigation and meteorology and
are designed to make the student
a safer and more proficient pilot.
Upon completion of the 15-week
course, CAA inspectors will conduct
examinations for private pilot's li-
cences. These tests are very rigid
and determine both the prospective
pilot's knowledge and his flying
ability.
The training course a being given
as an experiment at 13 colleges and
universities by the CAA as a direct
result of the President's plea to Con-
gress to provide for training 20,000

students as reserve pilots for the
Army and Navy. If it proves success-
ful, the plan will be extended to edu-
cational institutions throughout the
United States.
The cost of the program is defrayed
by the Civil Aeronautical Authority
with an appropriation of $100,000
from the NYA, The actual adminis-
tration, however, is in the hands of
the University. Prof. E. A. Stalker,
head of the department of aeronauti-
cal engineering, is in charge of the
program on the campus, and Prof.
E. W. Conlin is actively supervising
the work.
All thestudents are genuinely in-
terested in aviation as is attested to
by the $60 entrance fee they paid.
They all expect to continue flying if
financially possible and some hope
to make it a career.
There is very litle danger involved
in the course according to Professor
Conlin. This fact is supported by the
recent report from Randolph Field
that 336 Army cadets completed 35,-
000 hours of actual flying with a bent
propellor as the most serious mishap.
According to an official statement,
Dowagiac Forms
New Alumni Club
The University of Michigan Club
of Dowagiac became the 139th Michi-
gan alumni chapter yesterday when
T. Hawley Tapping, general secretary
of the Alumni Association received
the Articles of Association of the new
club. The club comprises 30 mem-
bers, and its first president is E.
Bruce Laing, '11.
A reorganization meeting of the

the CAA hopes, through the medium]
of this flight training program, "To
build up a great pool of men and ma-
chines, dedicated to and engaged in
the pursuits of peace, but ,yielding
first place to no other nation in fly-
ing skill or technical development,
and quickly adaptable to military
needs in time of war."

the religious objects in the collection
come.
Strange trumpets made of human
thigh bones decorated with silver
bands are used to call the faithful
and disperse demons. Odd-looking
prayer-wheels in the shape of metal
cylinders that enclose endless strips
of papers supplications to Tibetan
deities ,are revolved ceaselessly to
gain merit with the gods. Ceremon-
ial daggers of bronze are used to dis-
pose of devils.
Tinkling brass cymbals are sup-
posed to placate angry gods and
goddesses, and an imposing bronze
ball with a curious handle is the
mainstay of the sorcerer. There is a
grisly rattle-drum made of skull-
cups over which human skin As
stretched serves to mark pauses in
the Tibetan ritual, and the Lamaist
priest counts his beads on a rosary
made of human bones.
Not all 'the material is reminiscent
of skeletons and black devils, how-
ever. Curious bronze images have
the serene and detached gaze of the
Buddha face of the Far East, and the
insides are filled with powdered clay
or yak's wool which may hide any-
thing from a grain of wheat to a
small ruby.
Long strips of paper, which en-

Evidence of the wide scope of work
accomplished by the National Youth
Administration are the new street
signs designed for maximum legi-
bility and permanence to replace the
signs now in use at Monroe, Mich.
The signs are being manufactured
and assembled at present and will
later be erected at 300 interse ftions
as city sponsored NYA projects.
According to information issued by
the city engineer's office the signs
being made by NYA workers will use
letters three and three-fourths inches
high, one of the largest sizes ever
used in marking streets. The visi-
bility will be three times as great as
at present.
Each sign will consist of four
boards, bearing raised white letters
on a black background. The lowest
board, placed six and one-half feet
above the curb will enable them to be
seen easily over the top of parked
cars. They will also be low enough
to catch a portion of the headlight
rays at night.
