Field To Give
Talk In Naval
Lecture Series
'The Navy Afloat' To Deal
With Types Of Vessels
In American Service
Lieut. Commander Wells L. Field
of the Naval Reserve Officers' Train-
ing Corps will present the third in a
series of lectures on the navy, its
purposes and organization at 4 p.m.
tomorrow in the NROTC Chart
House in North Hall.
The talk, entitled "The Navy
Afloat," will deal with a discussion
of the .different types of vessels in
the navy ranging from America's
huge battleships to torpedo boats.
Commander Field will also speak on
the various organizations of the fleet
such as the Asiatic Fleet, the U.S.
fleet, special service squadrons and
the transportation service.
A graduate of Annapolis in 1923,
Commander Field has been in active
duty for several years as a gunnery
officer in the destroyer squadron
staff. In addition he has taught
naval science at Yale University for
two years.
The lecture series which this talk
is a part of is being given this year
to a group of juniors and seniors in
the College of Engineering as part of
a course designed to serve members
of a specialist class in the volunteer
naval reserve.
First two talks in this series were
given byl Capt. Lyal A. Davidson,
chairman of the local NROTC unit.

Proposed NewAirport Would Double

In Summary



If plans for a larger Ann Arbor
airport materialize, the CAA quota
of the University will probably be
doubled, Prof. Emerson W. Conlon
of the aeronautical engineering de-
partment and coordinator of the CAA
for the University, stated in an in-
terview yesterday.
The CAA quota here has been re-
stricted because of inadequate facili-
ties, he explained, and many young
men and women otherwise eligible
are being deprived of the opportunity
of learning to fly.
At the present time the Civil Aero-
nautics Authority is training 50,000
students a year, and, according to
Professor Conlon, this number will
probably be increased to 100,000. Since

there are no more schools available,
he said, this additional number will
be apportioned among the present
training schools, and unless Michigan
has better facilities, which could be
supplied only by a larger airport, the
course here can take no more stu-
dents than it has at the present time.
Only 50 preliminary and 20 ad-
vanced students can be trained at

Al-Thaqafa, Arabian culture soci-

Taylor in the first of a series of lec-
tures they plan to sponsor. Ismail'
Khalidi, president of the group, in-
forms us that Mrs. Taylor was invit-
ed because they felt that she was
particularly qualified, since she has
lived in the Near East since 1934.
Mrs. Taylor has been teaching et

Serv ce Fraternity
To Hear Chief Cook
An informal panel discussion on
"Present Day Methods of Law En-
forcement" to be directed by Chief of
Police Norman Cook will feature an
open meeting of Alpha Phi Omega,
national service fraternity, in the
Union at 8 p.m. today.
Fraternity officers announced that
all students who have formerly been
connected with the Scout movement
are invited to the meeting and are
eligible for membership. The pro-
gram of service of the fraternity is
so large that additional members
are needed, they declared.

one time under prevailing conditions,
Professor Conlon added, and to en-
roll more would endanger the safety
of all concerned.
In learning how to fly, especially in
the preliminary courses, he explained,
a large percentage of the time is
spent in making landings. At the
Ann Arbor airport all landings must
be made on narrow runways, and
when two or more students are prac-
ticing there is considerable loss of
time and possibility of collision.
Even with the present restrictions
on the quota here traffic at the port
sometimes becomes unduly congested,
and proper training is hampered,
Professor Conlon continued.
There has been some feeling that
the improvement of airport facilities
is not a local problem, but of the 180
students who have been enrolled in
the four courses from February, 1939,
up to the present time, 21 have come
from Ann Arbor and 56 from sur-
rounding Michigan towns. There-
fore, Professor Conlon added, Ann
Arbor, outside of trade advantages
and air mail facilities which would
undoubtedly come with a new airport,
would benefit if only from the in-
crease in the CAA tuota at the Uni-
Many members of various local
flying clubs and private citizens
would also benefit from a bigger and
better airport, Professor Conlon con-

Here's A Typo
Daily Editors
4 I
Won't Discard
Last night a Typographical Error
walked into The Daily-and and
captured the hearts of more than 50
No, that last paragraph is not a
"typo"-but The Daily's new mascot
is. For at about 10 p.m. yesterday,
12 inches of snowy white and pink
dog encircled by a large sky blue rib-
bon, strolled down the aisle to the
night editor's desk.
Before the N.E. could say, "Sorry,
there's no room;-maybe they can
print it tomorrow," the Daily staff
had already named the newcomer
Typographical Error-Typo for short.
Attached to the little stranger's
ribbon was a brief message:
I am, at six weeks, a hound
Without a home ground
Lost in the world's swirl
All because I am a girl.
It was signed with a petit paw-print.
And today there will be a special
meeting of all Daily staffs to decide
whether this poor homeless girl will
be The Daily's official mascot.
Nobody knows where Typo came
from-but everybody wants her. And
-significantly-this is the straight
dope. This is not a publicity stunt.

Swapping for British island naval
bases near the Asiatic coast would
be a direct contradiction of American
foreign policy in the Far East, ac-
cording to Prof. Joseph R. Hayden,
chairman of the poiltical science de-
Such a trade has been rumored as
one solution to the present British
quest for credits in the United States
with which to continue purchasing
war materials on a large scale.
Professor Hayden, who served as
vice-governor of the Philippines 1933-
35, said that the situation could not
be likened to the UnitedaStates' re-
cent trade of Atlantic bases for de-
Theacquisition of the Atlantic
bases could not be interpreted as
pursuing anything but a clearly de-
fined policy of coastal defense, he ex-
plained, while the situation is quite
different in the Pacific.
Ourdefinitely recognized defense
line at present includes an area
roughly bounded by Alaska, Hawaii,
Samoa, and Panama, and there do not
seem to be any islands of obvious im-
portance in this section that could be
obtained from Great Britain, he re-
Arrangements have been made for
joint use with the British of the is-
lands of Canton and Ederberry in the
Phoenix group, he added. These are on
the Pan-American route between Ha-
waii, Samoa, New Zealand and Aus-
Furthermore, any other bases of
importance which might be obtained
from Great Britain would fall within
the area close to the controversial
Asiatic, he observed. Since American
politicalandstrategic policy for this
section has never been clearly de-
fined, such a move would imply the
intention to gain dominance, or at
least a stronger position, in the Far

Shedd Heads Committee
On ActivityProgram
With the encouragement of con-
siderable student endorsement to
spur them on, a student-faculty com-
mittee headed by Robert Shedd, '42,
of the Union, has been investigating
the solution to the problem of stu-
dent-faculty relations on the Mich-
igan campus.
The first plan was merely to re-
vive the old series of Union Coffee
Hours, but further investigation has
led to the conclusion that something
more must be done, Shedd said in
announcing that evening recreational
"Hash" sessions and faculty-student
suppers were under consideration.
Members of the committee include,
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the English
department, Miss Ethel McCormick,
social director of the League, Prof.
Carl Brandt of the speech depart-
ment, Prof. Dwight Dumond, of the
history department, Eleanor Sevison,

has legalized its intentions to with-
draw its sovereignty over the Phil-

hence an attempt to obtain other
bases on or near the Asiatic coast
would seem to be a contradiction of
policy, he commented.
In concluding Professor Itayden
noted that American naval and mili-
tary authorities differ as to whether
islands in this Asiatic area would be
of value in the defense of continen-
tal United States.

ment yesterday, "In previous years,
J-Hop committees unofficially al-
lotted to individual members as many
as thirty or forty tickets to sell to
their friends. Their actions were
justified because of the great deal
of time and effort that they devoted
to their positions. This year, in ac-
cordance with the committee's desire
to have a fairer distribution of tick-
ets, and in order to avoid any mis-
understandings, we announce public-
ly that each member of the J-Hop
central committee will be allotted 10
tickets to distribute for sale to mem-
bers in good standing of the junior

pensate the members of the central
committee for their hearty support
and work."
