flying, are invited to attend the
meeting. The flying coeds hope to
buy a new trainer on the installment
plan, but if they are able to strike
a bargain on a second hand trainer
that will allow them to buy it with
their shares alone, they will probably
buy it. The girls plan on incorpor-
ating the club and selling twenty $30
shares, which will be redeemable at
fa.ce value at least. The share 'own-
ers will have the main advantage of
flying at an estimated cost of $2 an
hour instead of the usual $6 and
will pay monthly dues of about $3.50
to cover the installment payments
and insurance.
The club also aims to help mem-
bers desolve the fascinating, but
technical mysteries of other aero-
nautical subjects which they will need
to pass the dreaded written exam-
ination for tieir pilot's license.
Temporary officers will be elected
at the meeting tomorrow. Cather-
ine Osborne, '43Ed, has taken the
lead in the club's organization with
the assistance of Betty Collins of the
University Hospital, Mary Helen
Davis, '41, and Ruth Clark, '41, who
are receiving their ground. school
training through the University's
Civil Pilot's Training Program.

Freshman Williaim Lux
Devours Daily Dinner
In Speech Classroom
By IRVING JAFFE
It's a long leap from the Ivy League
to Ann Arbor, but the wiggly gold-
fish did it.
And it landed right in the iron-
lined stomach of William W. Lux,
'45E.
Ashamed of Michigan's lagging be-
hind Harvard, Dartmouth, Yale, and
other schools of the eastern elite in
the gentle art of goldfish-swallowing,
freshman Lux burst into Ann Arbor
this fall determined to lift the Har-
vard of the West from the dregs of
humiliation.
He has developed a new technique
which bids fair to place Michigan in
the forefront of the collegiate gold-

Lux startled an engineering speech
class, which at first refused to be-
lieve its eyes, by describing the new
Michigan technique for devouring the
slippery piscatorial animal--and then
duing it. He flipped the fish up into
the air from behind his back, tossed
back his head, and let it, hurtle
through his wide-open mouth into a
very much surprised esophagus. And
with that sudden deed, Michigan laid
its belated claim to goldfish suprem-
acy.
This vivid demonstration of the
the techniques of several eastern
schools. The Harvard boys, accord-
ing to Lux, are cautious, using two
hands for conveying the fish to the
mouth. At Dartmouth they are much

Worship services of Mohanmed-

will be enacted in an unique program
titled "A Panorama of the World's
Worships," which will be given by the
Westminster Guild at 7:00 p.m. today
in the Presbyterian church.
The Mohammedan call to worship
will be demonstrated by Faud S.

Gengradomying, Grad., will show the
use of the Taoist altar, as is done in
Thailand, and the Hindu Gita will

Marian Anderson's recording of
"Ave Maria" wil be played, followed
by a talk by Rev. Dr. W. P. Lemon

one hand to toss it into the air.
He explained that he kept several
fish in his dormitory room, because,
"When I came to college, I wanted
to have a room-mate who could drink
like a fish, but my room-mate neither
drinks nor smokes. So I guess I had
to get the real thing."
Ten minutes before class time, Lux
had still not prepared a speech. Fac-
ing the prospect of receiving an "E"
for the assignment, he suddenly de-
cided that this would be the ideal time
to introduce his technique, and in-
cidentally to save himself from a fail-
ing grade.
